There's a story from Jon -- director in the and power line up of power Powell and block our equipment here. Sheldon you're next with Howie -- go ahead -- that. How -- you way to play this earlier couple weeks ago but -- -- Audio I think it's from Al sharpton's TV show yeah where he imitates and copies every statement that Obama makes but he. He accentuates that what wondered. -- punctuation. Weird mission. So we got it we have you read that way you know what they'd be I think it's the Washington examiner. -- they assigned so. The Washington three -- -- they obviously they were punishing someone -- when they made him listen to watch his show every night for for probably four weeks or months. And they just cut cut up to into the cover all up but the funniest stuff all the missed pronunciation it's all the you repeated phrases over and over again. What's what's play one of them now press. -- -- People will lose their jobs. Or lose their jobs through work. -- -- -- -- You're here. We're becoming. They more perfectly. We're becoming a more perfect union -- keep moving this country forward -- well -- moving this country fraud that. Is that it. And we will much. About. That -- commitment saw it all well not my -- room in this region -- and and yet having to get himself Daniel. So I'm Monica Lewinsky through one and only -- it's obvious. Alice in London grand grant again had -- -- -- songs weren't seeing it today. -- -- -- -- -- -- People don't want to have there hustles and security overall he Republicans. -- -- -- Brandon Knight in evolution and Utley told me this whole thing locally old McLaren colors changed -- college angst. -- -- I T and skill it's president who is doing something certainly expected it won't change this fundamental fact about. The GOP jobs out all of these attacks it. Net is six months wrapped up paying for it check things they shouldn't have the attitude is -- news conference committee here for you on video. -- -- Fans on. This is the guy I mean. Forget. Forget all the you know Freddy's fashion mart Tawana Brawley the the diamond merchants for go laps that we're in the wire against the Gambino family of the with Casey fail -- whatever once. The -- phone. And this is the go to guy. For the Obama administration race Mike you're next with how we cargo ahead Mike. -- -- I was live and in Walker's all of New York when all of Tawana Brawley thing came up. That guy he Bremer now he destroyed. That attorney yet to resign. Steve O'Donnell that's right I think I think finally I think -- finally paid off but -- us. He he yeah. Yeah yeah absolutely dead yes did that. In the me in the meantime a lot of -- she wound up with a Condo and about airliner in. Or 400000 dollars raised by a Sharpton and Jesse Jackson then. -- -- operational or the occasional remember at what happened was that the there was this one girl up wanna Brawley. It should been out late on a date in -- was afraid that her parents were going to be. Pissed when she got home late so she invented this fantastic story about how these this this group of white Klansman pipes were all cops and prosecutors etc. Have grabbed her and and sexually assaulted her and -- defeat dog feces on her face remember that might. And at this -- don't -- -- and Sharpton in the -- -- Vernon Mason and there was another lawyer who I think who was involved in it about this barred. And that these guys jump all over it like it was like it was a possible. And it and they and in your right it was it was they come home lead. And nobody who was involved in that should ever have been -- except that in polite society they shouldn't he should have been set a precedent for that. Oh yeah absolutely. Why it's nice sort talent in New York that you ever had any issues like now. Yeah I know -- it he just used that to promote himself and to and to promote racial discourse that's all -- dead. And and in again -- it was a -- he has a free speech is free speech First Amendment right to to stay whatever the hell he wants. But you know as the old saying goes you don't have a right to yell fire in a crowded theater and that's what he was -- That he destroyed those -- that a prosecutor absolutely destroy them. But on yup thanks Mike 18774694322. How absurd these -- taxes. 18 sevenths of ports fixed my. Sharpton did not pay that somebody else paid on his behalf I forget who don't or spinal column paid who -- I just -- read that thing in the the New York Post about how much money you note. You know white red it was in this it was in the Sunday New York Post about three or four weeks ago. Again. Nobody -- I'm surprised mark Maureen picked up the first -- seated anywhere other than the New York Post. He almost four point seven minute can you main -- if if they if they if Ben Carson. Ben mentioned Ben Carson owed four point seven million it would Z. -- there would be no talk of anything else up if it if not the case because he's a Allen west. Because he's a producer there were there conservative Republicans. But you know pay nothing to see here folks move along. Peter you're next with how we cargo ahead Peter. A great show won't really they don't want to pass that you don't trust which we. Shock then and what -- houses elsewhere torture obvious could be -- I don't know I know I don't open was a -- I don't know what his connection was with the the beam the mafia I. All I know is that he wore a wire you know that's the thing to you all these all these communities you know war you know snitch snitches get stitches and all this kind of stopped. Again he he somehow gets it gets a pass on the as well. You know how is supposed to make you a bad guy in the in the inner city not as much as black community white communities as well. But you know again he skates on skates on everything thanks for the call -- 18774694322. And how we car. 4694322. Officer mark says is isn't required is that a requirement for all charlatans they have an -- as their first name Al Gore Al Sharpton Al Franken Al-Jazeera. Jog your next with how we -- ahead John. How we know Wesley Snipes with the president for three years and I don't believe the old what Al Sharpton goes -- -- a possibility that Wesley strikers that the sort of. -- What that's that's an excellent observation job -- What he -- but he I can't believe the people what they Jim -- -- oldest player in the big big wildly they -- him the Veba. Democrats and of the jail probably but they indicted him for a 40000 bucks for how. -- Up and you blow up former congressman's wife will be -- she was she was indicted and they've made are due to perp walk in front of the courthouse the federal courthouse and was there for a big a couple of 100000. Why talk about a you know did a double standard here course people -- Republicans right. You know again like you said I didn't know -- peace and so we're up yet. I -- -- point seven million dollars and it took pity that it took it like fifteen years this honestly the white warrior in while pitchers also like. Whose light fuel he literally destroyed I mean there's no question about it and a for I mean it was a total -- and the -- Can you imagine if how many people -- news outlets have been -- supposed Ben Carson had said something inflammatory at some point. He lived in Baltimore he lives in Baltimore. And you know somebody had gone -- in the in the ghetto in in Baltimore and killed eight people because of what Ben Carlson have been been Carstens said. -- do you think that that would ever be held against -- mean this the first time Freddy's fashion mart has been mentioned in the New York Times probably and 1015 years and dated even mention the name of the place for weeks they just they just you know let if you if you give. If you give me the an atrocity a name. It's it's more likely -- in someone's memory but they they wanna do that.
