Transcript - Not for consumer use. Robot overlords only. Will not be accurate.

From the heart. Corner. Flying no legions. Jesus Christ it's. Hi Mary choice. He is alive. And hopefully rig. Good Monday morning great to be back with you hope get a great weekend. As we start off another broadcast week. Glad you're with this that I wanna start off. The mic they headline for the story would be fighting back. I warned you about on this program. That's our constitutional right. It's. Sometimes are not necessarily undermined by politicians. But by corporate America. And we've watched this in recent years as major corporations have taken aim and things like free speech. And aunts the right to bear arms. Regarding the letter. When you're companies that are attempting to cut off money. It's necessary. For. The gun business. Now we've got some people who are fighting back. I saw this post an English yesterday my good friend Jeff Duncan. Congressman from the ups states. He says this problem my great friend attorney general Jeff Landry in Louisiana. These banks have closed accounts refused to handle credit card transactions or make loans to legitimate businesses. Involved in the sale or manufacture firearms. Regardless of their political beliefs. The Second Amendment still says the right to keep in berms shall not be infringed. While these banking policies aren't infringing upon the rights of law abiding citizens they are wrong in the eyes of many. Kudos Louisiana. I get a pro stare from Jeff Duncan referring to his friend another person I've met by the way Jeff lane entry of Louisiana. So what's happened here. Louisiana. Has prohibited Citibank and Bank of America. From participating in an up skimming bond sale. Because of their recent restrictions against doing business with gunmakers. You wanna talk about a much our money making opportunity. These bonds by the way and we can talk about this another time they are a racquet. That's what they are. Because ultimately what's happening is. These dollars are being reimbursed. With tax dollars. And you see this how many times do you see there's a bond referendum all we wanna build a new courthouse oh isn't this a beautiful building or we're gonna do this wonderful. Public private partnership. But we need a bond referendum to pay for it always gets this wonderful plan to build schools well we're gonna float combines well. These had to be financed who finances the ease and makes money off of them banks do. They're making a whole lot of money for this. The Jeff Landry has taken the bold step to provide leadership this is what leadership. Looks like you don't have to be personal you don't have to be nasty you know I have to make snide remarks over Twitter. You just do the job. Can you provide leadership he provided a voice and say you know what. He had a problem with a Second Amendment you have a problem with. Citizens. Bearing arms. And you want to participate. In what can only be called a conspiracy. To deny the opportunity. For citizens. Law abiding citizens to arm themselves. If this is where you are won't guess what. I think we'd rather do business with somebody else. Non commissioned treasurer John Schroeder said this I personally believe the policies of these banks aren't infringements. On the rights of Louisiana citizens. As a veteran and a former member of law enforcement I'd take the Second Amendment very seriously and this was not a slam dunk by the way. The bond commission's vote was 726. So impressed by one vote. To keep the Wall Street banks from underwriting its upcoming public debt offering. That's pretty close. So ultimately Louisiana has prohibited city Citigroup and Bank of America from participating. In this upcoming bond sale. Good for them. This is the kind of step that needs to be taken. And I would say that. Ordinary citizens need to follow suit here. These are things we need to think about it and everybody needs to be asked the question are you on this side of liberty. Or are you on the side. Of undermining our constitution. It's really that simple. Both those banks adopted new corporate policies around arms makers. This year. They did this in reaction to the school shooting in Parkland Florida. City the first major bank to impose restrictions on corporate clients requiring gun retailers to sell to people over 21. Pass background checks and do not sell high capacity magazines or bonds stocks. City adopted this policy because we believe it's a positive and bounds stepped to promote dunce of safety. Without undermining free markets are Second Amendment Rights. That's what a bank spokesperson told approached. It's disappointing the taxpayers of Louisiana will be deprived from competitive bidding. For necessary public works because the process has been politicized. Oh my goodness these poor victims. Numerous other trying to turn this around the world does not got a big competitive bidding process. How he banks are there in the United States of America. There are only two banks. Citigroup and Bank of America are those the only two banks in the world. There are plenty of other places. This is crap. It really is. Make America follows soon after saying it would not lend to makers of assault style weapons love that phrase. But interestingly enough they loans 43 point two million dollars to Remington a few weeks later. A spokesperson for Bank of America has declined to comment. Now I think mini if you agree with me in one sense. Your. Kind of proud of and I say in one sense. And supportive of the hometown bank as in Bank of America which is headquartered here in Charlotte. But there comes a time. We got to take a stand. And I think what Louisiana has done is bold. It's courageous. It's necessary. Now having said this these banks. They're private entities they can do whatever they want. They can't. There's no requirement. You know what I think is also interesting about this. Can you make the argument here. If they are. Depriving people of a service. You may have the constitutional right to do that what do I mean how different is this from the baker. Who has been targeted out in Colorado. Who did not want to perform certain services. Isn't an interest in banks. They can make choices just. Whether they provide those services don't pay. Just the thoughts and they've put that out there for your consideration as well. Just you have money you can do whatever the heck you want. Coming up won't talk about prison reform. And we'll have a little fun making fun of Al Sharpton he's got another blunder to talk about. This is this Coakley radio program. Fact of the Vince Coakley radio program on the text line something we haven't addressed yet but I'll probably a conversation that's. Worth having. This text you're saying Vince I think it's dangerous foreign policy for trumped pushed her Turkey to the brink of economic collapse all over American pastor being held. In house arrest. I think this could have been negotiated in a better way all trump knows how to do is to be in your face. In in your face bull looser now Turkey is talking to prudent about buying a missile defense system with Russian advisors. When about the US nuke stored in Turkey yet. Trump is making the world greed again. This. Is something that needs to be considered shirt. And I think there are a lot of big questions here about Turkey. Which is a part of NATO. Is this going to be the future for Turkey. Forced to future going to fall within the Russian orbit. That's a big question. The previous segment I was talking about Jeff Landry used the attorney general in Louisiana taking the strong step providing leadership. To pull the plug on two big banks Bank of America. And Citigroup. For their anti gun policies. Pulling the plug on bonds. Giving the opportunity. To fund bonds within the state Louisiana. And texture says Jeff Landry is coming to Jeff Duncan's faith in freedom Barbeque. The great opportunity to hear him. I've gotten to be did miss I mentioned. Really good guy. Then spoke those banks source cricket as Wells Fargo and I wouldn't do business with any of them. Already. I wish I bank with Bank of America so I could close out my accounts. Are a Mensa these banks supported subsidize or insured by the federal government well of course they are clear how this works. Thanks cannot do whatever they want because they're private they can't declare that they refuse to loan to minorities or women or gays or Muslims Kim day. Well now. Sorry Vince I'm not proud of bank of amigo and I don't support them in any fashion. Are right. While their friends here if you asked the British. We had the revolutionary war. Was a tactical weapon it was a muzzle loader if you asked the Indians. It was a lever action rifle. The weapon is only good as the personally if they've already infringed on a Second Amendment. But can't you can't own a fully automatic weapons the law didn't say with certain weapons excluded. Boy that's. Another very important conversation is it not. We should be the arbiter of what the Second Amendment covers. To me it seems kind of open and it. Who puts restrictions. Who determines. At what point. Well this is too much for private citizens. And we have this Vince thanks for keeping it fresh with your new intro it's great. Well thank you. Appreciate debt. We try to do that on this broadcast. So we've talked about. Putting banks in their place. Once Davis decided to do that. Let's talk about something else that I'm glad to see on the radar screen and hopefully there will be something that comes out of this now. You know people eat you can say whatever you want. This is not attempt to. I'm just saying. What he has just speaking of reality. Can you name. Import legislation that has been passed this year. Just identify something. By the way Steve Bennett is concerned about the mid terms. He's concerned that the Republicans could lose as many as thirty or forty seats. And he says we better rally behind Donald Trump to survive the mid terms. Any case. We needed to do some serious prison reform for a long time I think a few weeks ago on this program I was talking about how. I really believe that we need a more fundamental reform of the way we do all of this and here's what I mean. It's speed doesn't serve any redemptive purpose to just hold somebody in a cell. Especially if they've committed something like a property crime. What I wanna see is restitution. Do you still 500 dollars from somebody you earn that 500 dollar. Amounts. Back while you're behind bars. And when she pay that off your out. Get out go take care of yourself. I just don't see the value of incarcerating people now. If you get someone who's reaping people committing violent crimes you don't mean this is probably different conversation. But I think this is part of what. Has really gone wrong with this whole prison thing we think somehow we just throw somebody in the cage that by the way. Speaking of cage. I've been watching one of the reasons I'm using that expression. I've been watching reruns of Barney Miller. One of the local channels hears that and I have it set the record my DVR. Factor of over seventy episodes. And I'm behind on so far. But they they keep referring to yet put Medicare age into. And what you think in those terms. And there's something wrong with that we're putting human beings in a cage. Now. Going back to what I said about violent crimes. You behave like an animal what may be belonging to cave in a cage well maybe achieved here. But for him for nonviolent. Property crimes. Just working off. TV this is part of what's missing in our society people don't know how to do restitution. They don't know how to do restoration they don't know how to do reconciliation. Now my honest opinion is the church needs to leave the way here. Very often written leading the way we're following. And we're. Seemed kind of a week to course. On some sort of political position there really has no meaning. Nonetheless. There is a push now. We have the president supports for prison reform. And it actually has a shot according to NBC news. This is a years long slog to undo pieces the federal government's machinery of mass incarceration. And now it's turning into a sprint. The president announced this month White House push for a landmark and bipartisan proposal to revamp the US prison system. Reform advocates lest we be yet aggressively lobbying congress to act. They don't have much time. It's been tried before. Those efforts died in the mire of election year politics. And guess what it's. November 6. Is right around the corner mid terms. So the question is how hard they push now the Republican controlled house has already passed a bill that offers federal inmates. More opportunities to prepare for freedom rewards them with more good time credit for behaving. Am participating in education and training programs. Scott the first step act provides a faster path to release for almost all federal inmates. Many of whom would see months shaved off their release states immediately. These changes some of them would actually go into effect retro actively. But here's the problem the senate is tougher sell. Charles Grassley of Iowa Republican Dick Durbin of Illinois Democrat. They've been fighting for years for more sweeping set of changes. President focusing on people already in prison would target the source of mass incarceration. By reducing sentences for nonviolent offenders here's my question why kids should do these things at the same time. Does that conflict is that too complicated for these old Kreutz I am just asking. No I don't have disrespect for older people but sometimes you gotta wonder if he can't function in that kind of setting maybe need to go home. A third of the set its membership who have signed on as co sponsors to their legislation. Adding since he reformed the first step back would be an important bipartisan win this would Grassley treated on Thursday. However some Republicans. Oppose the more expensive bill. Some are calling this a jailbreak that would endanger communities. When he hit your thoughts. This is still Vince Coakley radio program. Backed out of its Coakley radio program. Overrun attacks lie and reaction to the things we've discussed this pardon. Me BankAmerica story. Losing out on bonds in Louisiana. Text or sis well taking moral high ground about guns. Why ignore the Q parade this weekend. VOA sponsored manned up. Or boy. And yes I did find I did not realize. That they were actually a sponsor. Of the pride parade. The 2018 Bank of America Charlotte pride parade. My goodness. Yep there we go folks let's grab a call from Bob good morning share. Very bad problem or Portugal Randolph Scott mobile bully COLT forty what Pol Pot pension. Won't. Saying what were the movie started it said. Powerful weapon. Is not alone put itself but for the older Dutch and how they choose to use it. Then that's good. Yeah and I'm I'm not sure that's the fact quote let that destroy struck in this or. That is really good I love it thanks a lot for sharing that Bob and a gimmick comes back to the issue every there's nothing. The weapon itself is morally neutral. In morally neutral. It's all. Dependent on the charge of the personal holding onto it makes all the difference in the world doesn't it. All the difference by the way if you like curator conversation or England finished talking and number 809 to 1110. Kind of sits retirement planning takes line is 71307. So far we've talked about it's the effort to. Basically. Aggressively. Deal with a couple of banks. That are attempting to undermine the Second Amendment. And we've also talked about prison reform. The possibility there may be a strong push to try to get this done before the fall elections coming up in November. So we'll see where this goes let's have a little fun shall we talking about somebody moronic things that occurred over the weekend. One of them. Al Sharpton. This guy what I when I saw this I thought oh my goodness infect a few minutes ago I played this. In the office. For a bunch of people I mean they're laughter everybody just roared with laughter. So. Al Sharpton has a show it's still blows my mind in and you know and I I'll just tell you I think it's an insult to black people. That MSNBC would give this guy a television show. I mean think about it. I mean I I there are plenty more talented black people they can be put on a show. Now I'm not talking about it worries emerge from ideologically. It's affected this guy's a moron. Surely there's some more intellectual and and I know some of them. Very strong. Arm intellectual. Liberals so called progressives. Give them a show find a fresh face somewhere. Al Sharpton Jesse Jackson. Please just go away. Nonetheless. Sheriff didn't call on president Donald Trump to be respectful in his rhetoric toward women. He was suggesting trumps insults toward Amoroso medical Newman. The former White House aide in apprentice. Contestant to wrote a tell all book criticizing him drum called Newman the dog. Favorite insult of president trumps. Chart can call this an analyst explorer. I think you might have learned the lesson this week sometimes the dog bites back with a book deal. Wu. That's really good stuff there. So a sure thing concluded all of his rambling remarks which I'm gonna spare you. From having to listen to the nonsense. But we don't get very quickly. To what he's calling for out of the president's. And you listen and get a laugh for yourself. So in the words. Of my late friend every de Franco and show some RE ESP ICT. Can the next task. And you get a black woman and a Beagle confuse. Remember this. I guess. RU SE ICT. You know there's a part of me at an I'm serious about distance apart are we really feel sorry for this guy. You know imagine going through life. When your theme song gotta be if I only had a brain. I mean really RE SP does CT. Our Josh I really do feel sorry for him that's really sad. Really lists. Yes we can all slip Idenix. That is a big boy that is a big way and he is now that. I think you know that's. You know I wonder if rush is going to get our rushing Clinton to do a new parity saw its begging for one is that. Respect. Whatever that is. And we also have this now let me just for those of you who may not be familiar with this program. Don't you understand I am not in the never front camp. Nor MI and the always trump can't. I'm gonna make that very clear. Now in the previous category. We've got these people that just they spew nothing but hatred it's like 24/7. This is kind of thing is just don't say about people just don't. It's not funny so a joke but nonetheless. Doesn't make a difference to someone like Florida Democrat Alcee Hastings. By the way I would daresay if this can joke we're told about Barack Obama. I can imagine all of the complaints about racism. Hastings was speaking your rally in sunshine Florida. Any repeated joke he heard from Ari silver the son of former Florida State legislator Berry silver. You ready for the joke let's see how funny you think this jerk is it may take a minute for this to come up here. It was like we have an issue playing this thing oh my goodness. We'll have to play this a little bit later on. An Alitalia. It's really said that the word a place where. I just give your preview. It's about making fun of the president dined. No seriously. How would this be received. And Jennifer are back during the Obama administration. This is not funny there's just certain things that you do not do. But for some people they really have no standards they have no morals. Coming up the broadcast. I came across a great article is written by her friend Andrew McCarthy for national review. And it's about this ruckus going on about the security clearance issue. And I think it's absolutely brilliant. Because there are reasons why. Mr. Brennan should have read a security clearance pulled. And I think Andrew McCarthy sums up my position very well revoking Brin and security clearance the right thing. Even if for the wrong reason. I think this was done for the wrong reason but coming up we'll talk about the right reasons. A perspective from Andrew McCarthy but also from senator Rand Paul. As we continue to broadcast. This is still Vince Coakley radio program. Fact of Vince Coakley radio program vital way. The president's. This kind of trolling. Bread and the former CIA director saying hey I hope this guy does file a lawsuit. At least been considering truck just what a waste of time I don't think it's thrown out very quickly what a waste of energy. But there's some people have to remain in the spotlight. And it just absolutely drives them crazy. The possibility of not being in the spotlight. Over on the text line. Some pretty interesting items here. Let's see what we pick up on here. Vince isn't there a lot of restricts free speech in the press during times of war were maybe trump can start a war with Iran and that way trump. Can shut down CNN and anyone else who dared to criticize our great emperor. It's the new national security. I assume this person is being facetious tonight and left along with this. Not only more talented I made the comment that Al Sharpton being thrown out there as an example for black people by being hired by MSNBC is an insult to black people. Not only more talented but surely folks what is politics. We have the ability to get more viewers than he does. Surely it's long term ratings can't be hike in the arch. Someone else saying if he wants to be respectful. Respectful. Would it be respectful to pay your taxes. Rule. Could shots. That a person would like to see this one in the opener of our show meant to find a place for that. Sharpton's like he does he need ice cream as fast as he wants him. The Sherman asked as Sharpton asked the trump attackers who wanted to be headed. Ray's wife raped or is daughter raped her son kidnapped and violated. For our area SP ICT. Another person saying our ESP ICT sounds to me like an anti Latino dog whistle. Clinton can you think that's pretty clever. Vince sandy burglar was able to keep this security clearance after he left the Clinton administration. Used to steal documents after nine elevenths. Gonna be that Brennan has installed the docs he needs to cover the obamacare administration tracks. May be so nervous Vince Aretha knew how to spell respect. And it's understandable reverend would know how because he's never had any respect for anybody but himself. Jim at a measly and you're probably right about that. Vince I've tried and tried to spell respect the way Powell not so Sharpton did. Aretha Franklin just won't let me I almost died in laughter when I heard. First heard him virtue this when this blissful eager it's. RE ESP does CT. Condition. Vince. Did you lines or receive the Steve Durham movie. Dinner for shoe marks run attending one and haven't found a schmuck to take with me this Al Sharpton who bill or or or. By the way I've not seen that movie I'm betting lines are this. Knowing him that's his kind of movie you can tell me a little bit later on. Well other friend here Al Sharpton and another fine example of someone who can't pour crap out of the boot if the instructions were caught up. Boy you guys are rough. Speak give mr. right so what do we take a look at the day in history now's a good time for that. When you say. It maybe so maybe not. This is happens to be the twentieth day. Of August. And live CU we have years. Is loans are there. You know amused we're hearing another voice in the background there. Just I think it may be our previous post in the Arab states in the background. There were also hearing in addition to EU. Yeah I know what you say yeah let's. I don't see any well they're Leo TI and there Rico its okay Mitch and don't worry about it it's not the end of the world they don't disrespect me. RE SP does CT. Coach. That's gonna take a life of its own business. By the way you see this movie dinner for smokes not too little too low brow for me though we do well okay. What excuse me what's so I prefer intellectual humor obviously. Had a today they joke. We're gonna have to east in the segments beyond I've already concluded that but it's worth going into our questions. I'm Greg yes runs is can you at least two of these four correct. We start with this 11667. And this person I don't know for should you be the person or the poem. Paradise lost you know who's behind that it's. I hate the stuff by the way in English. Dried the way I do not so on and so Golden Globe. OK in anybody here know who bet it is. Charles John and totally guessed Thomas Milton you are correct actually and you'll sit. That's pretty good news to. 1964. And prison. Intel. Johnson signed the economic opportunities act. And this was the start of a program for young children. What is it called would sit known by now. Economic opportunities act young children. Preschoolers. I don't know. Anybody wanna guess here in the studio room. Are there as our head start is correct in his head start. 1968. This country invaded Czechoslovakia. Who was it. The evil people who did that 1968. Do us us or you're correct it's the Soviets those dastardly people. And last but not least create the resignation of Richard Nixon. And then we had. Well a couple of things going on crew became president. 1974. When Nixon resigned and Gerald Ford you are color. And there's more to this and we'll talk about some other stuff coming up after the break Campbell thought about something and happened over the weekend. Stay with us and this is so this. Coakley radio program. From the heart of the Carolina. Bringing the DC fans into focus the lens so the liberty dances don't fit Stokley radio program. It was super bright guess we. However it was. Conversation of their friends Alonso who is still with this. We were talking abouts. One very important moment in history. And that was the resignation of Richard Nixon his replacement by Gerald Ford. And he also a point ends his vice president. This was unusual because we never had a situation. We we had two guys in the top offices. That nobody voted for. Now an amazing. You know this other person words Montero. Who is the other person. Who became vice president to man I came out on some. I think rich. He knows I'm not gonna help me and you tell me Hewitt is number always I think he has a relative crew is a member of congress now. I think. It studio. NEA anybody know who the VP was appointed VP Charles. About Charles knows the answer this question. He's old enough. It. Yes appointed by forward and again. These guys who were never elected. Never elected by the people well. No well once Dixon was gun Ford became president. And he appointed someone else is his vice president. No moon. Nelson Rockefeller. Net insisting he just kind of disappeared in two insignificant stood me now I was gonna say. Buried gold a lot of famous urologists but I have a hot. Those aren't I like Dell and you know the fact that Charles didn't know that makes me feel better insurance it's (%expletive) because he you know he's old as dirt on yet. If anybody knows or B Charles Ray. We're just kidding Charles all meant and affectionately. But this was a strange they may actually have two people that were not voted on. And you know insists. Kind of a strange circumstance that occurred. A by the way Ford became vice president if I remember correctly because he was in the house. And when Spiro Agnew was convicted on tax fraud fraud charges to resign because of tax fraud. And they voted I think the house voted him in as vice presidents. To replace. Your place your Agnew and that's how he became vice president of first place. To their whole weird era. Lets kids on two important stuff about the weekend did you get to watch both shows this weekend months. Yes I did. Now you tell me by the way we're talking about WW eat if you're not a BW WE fan bear with this woolly talk about a for a couple of minutes but. Which show did you like best Saturday night or Sunday night Saturday night we had in XT takeover. Sending night we had summer slam. Which one did you enjoy most. You know usually I would say take over for sure but so many eventful things happened last night that I've got to put them even. They're even OK I give the edge Saturday night to NXD takeover. That's him he was a spectacular. Show I mean last night just felt kind of steal. Issues which is the only reason agendas or watched any of this anymore because it got old. I gotta tell you there was a situation Saturday night when I was watching my wife says take a picture and send it to events. Because of what was on the velvet teen dream all nod I'd do you're gonna say that I knew this was Kevin says count me out Vince. I Josh I saw that that no bugs is gonna see that and I'm gonna hear about it Monday that should be in the show opened lower lungs are still also picked. Cookie generated. But by the way for those not familiar fidelity and dream is this I would call this guy a cross between Little Richard. Friends. And and who else little sweet. I don't know who the world is not implicate them. Or this guy he's weird he's really out there. Yes you need to end and just watch NXD for one week are giving you know and because you might enjoy that morbid fellow teen dream distances twin and you'll enjoy CI rebukes that. But yeah I had these these these is what was he was back just sees his wrestling trunks or whatever you was wearing pants and usually puts a picture of the person he's wrestling villain has. Types would. But instead people it. Called me up this because he's basically he's in the minor leagues of of wrestler a developmental league and he wants to move up to the big you alliance Vince McMahon the call him up. Yep and I don't beats and I'm gonna make a prediction he'll be there within a year want to. I think he'll be very complex ally agree it's a I don't think he would let him get away with that I think that's part of story lines sure it is Fries me. Absolutely. But IE you know there was just daring him I searched and great moments and Saturday night at what I like is action. I don't like the drama as much as they do the action but you can sit there yes we know this is all scripted and but what I like about these these younger people there in the Arab. The minor league so to speak is their raw talent. I just love seeing the raw talent and the media moves that they pull off. It just blows my MySpace should guy ricochet. I mean some of the things that he does not stand Rick you don't like Greek what's wrong with my ears circus lag that's what he means is no worries from. Nobody needs to be there. Well one. And suited to Marines spot and stole his. Spotlight in a single in case she hadn't figured out yet but months as a big fan of velvet teen dream can't stand ricochet musical. My goodness. That is just too funny. Yeah and the goods there was a review our rivalry going on between those shoes so. Bill that was that was probably one of my favorite moments tonight when liberalism to hurry stop you got to point out that Charlotte. One the times show won the title again you'll be up and got turned on by her best friend. Yep and yes that was that was an interest in bitter drama land Roman rains finally wins the title. And people were Bowie right now when I say that and I knew that was coming. And I knew that I though that was one of the funny moments where were they chanting during that match with Brock Lesnar would you both suck. I get other work but so do but it was a perfect setup bring in now Ron stroman before hand yeah that was clever. And you because you thought what was gonna happen at the end there's going to be match between who are lost. By the way just so as you don't follow all this. There is said this thing called the money in the bank and once they win that money in the bank match. They're able to challenged the champion. At any time and so you know most the time you don't know they could show up at the last minute and say okay. Now the match is over do you just get them that your clock cleaned. Okay now I'm gonna challenge you and take your title in your already deep likened to a pulp. She don't let me let me give a quick example toward the guys in studio would understand if John had the money in the bank briefcase. And he walked over and hit pencil in the back of the head. This would be the Johns show now. And that's exactly they don't give me any ideas. They we need to meet after the charlatans they are you watching that you are gonna. You guys are dangerous don't know about you guys so what they do is they telegraphed is she thought there was going to be this match one of these guys again in old prevail. And then there's going to be this bronze stroman match but it didn't quite turn out that way but in case you didn't watch. I won't give you that spoiler but it was clever the way they did that but it nonetheless. It was enjoyable it was entertaining. Which is why it's called World Wrestling Entertainment right. I was entertained death it was good for them anyway. Coming up we do have that audio of this so called joke from Alcee Hastings we will play that also talk about this security clearance issue. And get a couple perspectives on that that much more as we continue. Stay with us. This is fiscal clean radio program. Hey homeowners who. Earlier we told you about Alcee Hastings we've got the Audi are ready to go now who will play here a bit first you've got up on the text line here. And Al Sharpton the Intel Sharpton calling herself for reverend is an insult all true reverence. John out of cabins. By the way. And it isn't just didn't. Use secrecy. Of your post I do not call anybody reverend. I just don't. Haven't done that for years there there are times I will say I may slip. But I do not call. I think only one person deserves to be revered. And that's got himself. I hate these titles absolutely abhors them. Just thought should note that. Any case. Sharpton needs to ask pat if he can buy a vowel and he looked at skipped it. Our ESP ICT build that wall immediately. Hit at and it's clever. One of the great things about all religions. They hold individual stock higher power technology seems to me quickly stripping that nuance away. Once we become responsible to no one. But ourselves for our beliefs will find out if we were created in God's image or rats. Exciting times or boy. That's an interest in way to look at it. This have you seen where the professional sports teams and will annoy you are going to put out ads to stop the violence in Chicago. I really don't think the gangs watch TV that much. You know it's it's kind of clever idea but you kind of wonder I mean how many you know yet you think he's gay is gonna sit and say you know what. Mean we got to listen to this piano player of the Chicago Bears and maybe we ought to clean up her act I don't know. Just think after 20/20 eight or have a third person in office no one voted for. Oh wow what are you suggesting. If play either assisting on TV called UFC where you can watch real fights. That's good yes I have watched. Last night beat doubt MMA takes over WB we rowdy. And Lesnar you guessed by the way we didn't talk about that monsoon Ike. Rather Rouse is now the ladies champion. Boy that was quite a match to watch bringing some those in May may skills over to you. There you WE. Man I I'm serious I would not want to be in a fight with her. That woman you don't don't don't play around with her. None at all. I love this this is great did you see the similarities between politics and summer slam it's all scripted yes. In fact I have long argued that I can knee injury arresting a little more because at least everybody knows it's fake. With politics too many people believe. That this is real. Just saying. Then rights in response what I said earlier about the use the word reverend amen Vince Christ himself is our pastor and reverend. Yep if only more of us would adopt that perspective. And stop elevating mean. This is where we get and there's so much trouble let's get our C Hastings. We told you about this so called joke this was a joke. That's Alcee Hastings heard from Ari silver the son of former Florida State Legislature Barry silver. And listen for yourself and see how funny you'd think this is. Okay. Is it's okay. As usual this. Oh yeah we'll. It's. Wrong. Do you know the difference fidgety it's. It's. Right. You do Armstrong. Falls into the top it all up. Okay. You know I was just thinking I wonder how many of us people who were cheering this. We're in church on Sunday morning saying praise the lord. I'm you hear ring. I'm serious. This is you don't make death jokes. That's serious business. So honestly. And and I I think you this is a question we all need to ask ourselves. Think of your most. Most reviled. Political opponent or enemy. Ask yourself the question of this person were drowning in Eudora to swim. In you know how to rescue that person would you do it. I think that's a very important question to ask. Because that'll determine whether you are more in touch with your humanity. Then you are your politics. Because I would daresay too many people. And this is on I would say here's Betsy both sides the IO. I mean you know what that means anymore. But they're too many people. This is what qualifies for humor. I don't wanna see my worst political enemy debt. I really don't. Part of my hope is. Above politics. For that person to experience redemption because most of the time and convince most these people haven't. And I certainly don't want them to die lost. Nonetheless. We move line in right away these are the folks who are always trying to teach us about civility. Yeah I think we know. That's a joke. They don't believe in civility. Let's talk abouts. The security clearance issue. And I told you about this article that I would strongly recommend I would really love Andrew McCarthy for this reason this is the guy was no nonsense. He's now one of these people are streaking anybody's Coolidge. Revoking Britain's security clearance the right thing even if for the wrong reason. He said it's right because he's irresponsible. And untrustworthy and it's politicized intelligence. Referring to John Brennan. He said I don't share my friend David French is theoretical constitutional concerns about the presence revocation of security clearances. At least when it comes to former government officials to become media commentators. And have no demonstrable need for security clearance light David many of our analysts though. I think it is a big mistake to vote politicized it revocation of security clearances. There's no question in my mind that is what Donald Trump has done this to become a political thing and it's personal. It's really because this guy has stare. Criticized the president that's really what this is all about. He goes on still I'm even less of a fan of the politicization. Of intelligence itself that justifies the revocation of former CIA director John Britain's clearance. As is often the case with president trump the right thing has been done here for the wrong reason namely. For vengeance against a political critic who's always zealous and often unhinged. That a decision amounts to political payback is not necessarily make it wrong on the merits but it's in your face pettiness is counterproductive. Undermining its justification how many times have I said this before. The president has done the right thing. For the wrong reason. So this all becomes about him and honestly I think it makes him look small. Because he's using the power of the presidency. Against this enemies. But there are good reasons. Good reasons to revoked John Brennan's security clearance. Good reasons. The Bruins tweets about trump are objectively outrageous. He also said its former CIA director Mike havens tweets are real advice. Like the one comparing trumps border enforcement policy to Nazi concentration camps. But he said general Hayden speaking anti trump political arguments not intimating he has knowledge of trumped corruption based on his privileged access. Two intelligence information which you may or may not have. I'm gonna talk about us. Reasons why Brenden should be stripped of his security clearance well dressed as much more coming up. This is still Vince Coakley radio program. We go to serve your cause they very quickly talking about mr. Brennan. Not far from the ongoing investigations there's considerable evidence intelligence was rapidly politicized on Britons watched. While he was CIA director and before that Obama's Homeland Security advisor. For example. Obama administration national security officials deceptively downplayed weapons threats posed by Syria Iran and North Korea. As weekly standard's Stephen Hayes notes written and directed the CIA to keep under wraps. The vast majority of documents seized in the raid on Osama bin Laden's Pakistani compound. Precisely because that information put the lie to Obama administration narratives about it decimated al-Qaeda. The moderation of Iran and general counterterrorism success. So reports. The intelligence didn't matter let's keep the cigarettes. Let's politicize the intelligence. To advance our own political agenda. Brennan is dirty I'd never doubted that for a moment. Indiscriminate Reese. Guess security clearance problems. There are other things in this particular article which you're welcome and I encourage you to read it. By. Andrew McCarthy. But additions that we also have Rand Paul. Who's got on the record on this particular issue do we have brand ready addressing. The issue of these security clearance getting reproach. For mr. Brennan and Howell it was a necessary thing. Rand Paul obviously agrees with the president. On the rule the underlying reasons to do this it's not personal. And I think this is an important distinction to make it's not a high end. The fact that what he has said is offensive to the president. This is why it's someone liked. Andrew McCarthy and another person like Rand Paul it's important for them to articulate this let's listen to Rand Paul. And that's a sum up pretty powerful and those are and where you the first one to suggest this to the president and who did you talk to him about this since he returned to. I'm gonna talk about this weekend so I'm not gonna trip to Russia and also about John Brennan I've been calling for a review of FBI director last January asking. Does he still have clearance with John Brennan I think what the left is ignoring is I think he should have had this clearance revoked for call us. You know he leaked information. They came out the media that we had a double agent in Yemen and a war going after the underwear bomber there's there's still as a bomb maker in Yemen. He leaked that to the media. Two people Richard Clarke who had a security clearance and then he went on television say no not to worry we have a double agent in Yemen. The W was still there are any present agents' lives at risk John friendship and fired for that alone. Yep. The skies I told you he is dirty guys dangerous. And for that reason. He and this is why. We need a broader conversation about these kinds of and dare I say it crimes. And if necessary prosecution's. We don't need food fights. He said bad things about me. To those who advance anything. Let's be serious talk about serious issues. Rather than just hurt feelings. Let's get some reaction to some of these things that we've discussed the past few minutes including my comment abouts church which apparently has stirred something gear. How does go to bill in Charlotte good morning. I applaud it didn't you know sooner. Did you. Manage did let you write it Google said that it parked there have been hurt build. It is so. Apparently they have back and he didn't. Want to outpatient. Injured don't look. All black body build. And state political joke of but you want to wonder about the people chart or. Charts it was dead or walk in the bill. I would say the same thing bill this is that the point that I make it I wasn't I wasn't talking about that bill. I was talking about people who. I bet you goal. Of all back but then talk about a bearded. But polls you bet. You don't think that serious. I wish somebody dead that's that's so that's some. But truck had hit about President Obama well. Well here. Which which thing about which thing about President Obama. What's that. I say it which they knew about President Obama. Okay so well that all the BB bit about what about that aren't you do get. Hit it depends on now here's here's no bill excuse me bill. I'm trying to focus on one thing talking about wishing somebody dead. Did you have any record of Donald Trump expressing a joke about Barack Obama being dead. Are here. If you have something like that you'll hear me say the same criticism ought to go right ahead. Not all there. He should be it and they should be locked up. We also said they'll stay. No where he birdied where did he say that he should be dead he wished he were dead. I okay I'll get right. Did you get information. Yes and I've since it Timmy. Vince ads at WBT dot com how is that. That is a bit it got hot and they don't need you brought up. And and bill. It's really travel wasted time even go down that road because. If he said something of that nature I would be equally critical you're not got to find sympathy. Bridget but. Actually have a big group blog all that being beat nation ballot Bob Dole. Why. This guy smoking bill bill put down put down the the crack pipe or whatever it is that you've got. You obviously do not listen to this program. The heat that I take from people from criticizing the president. Are you obviously have not been listening fell. Out of Denver good morning welcome. Mordant sense. I'll let out LC a look at his background you disgraced politician. From Florida Miami of Obama's vacant. And I'm pretty sure he could include solid. Here they rebel browser and so it all just a crap. He should be just totally ignored. You know I think that's a good way to characterize this bill I do appreciate your call in in you know in general if I give. Ignored these kinds of things and that it was worth. Pointing out tee you especially since there's audio. Does it also be allies this whole idea of liberals have from having a monopoly on civility. I mean Biden out by now that ought to be clear by the way I'm looking at one picture of us. Hastings. You know angrily speaking and who I see in the background but on Esther herself. Boy that was an insult on Esther I'm sorry. Maxine Waters in the background. I mean these people are about as hateful which you're gonna get there really are. So. Just for the record every remind you. They ridgeline in conversation is wishing somebody dead. We're making jokes about that person being dead. Okay. And it doesn't matter who says Donald Trump says that he's dead wrong. Barack Obama says that he's dead wrong you're gonna find me. Participating in tribalism. Because I hate that crap if all of it. Yeah this is not how you rebuild the country. I think we're coming from I would be very clear by now if there's any. Ambiguity I'll be glad to clear up call me out. We'll have a conversation about it. Final stretch of our money broadcast. It's kind of cool I just got a reply finally for an mind. I don't count her precarious situation I won't say how many years have been at a high school or day. But I attended. Basically I was with three different schools in three different cities during my high school years. Three. So. I mean there's one main reunion I'm going to this fall. But there are two others I really want to go through just to see people. That's why he didn't graduate for instance within Indianapolis I'm gonna go back. And Delaware where I would do if graduated from a fight stayed my final year I've left to my after my junior year. So I got to be cool to go to all of these 35 year I just what did I say that's our case. You know how old lane. If called called the good all three this year by just during the break. Heard about the yet. Indianapolis one which is good I show look forward to going to that and seeing people have not seen in a long long time to be kind of cool. I know about you won't talk about this as we include closer to the east dates. Let's taking calls response some of the things we've talked about during the course the broadcast day how about rich out of Duncan good morning. Hey grant thanks Mick McCall paid he US challenge your land article caller. Do. Our records or time one trump. Head up publicly stated that he wished to top Barack Obama died and I don't think that has ever happened to him. I don't sure it has. Department I'm sure it hasn't. I'm but you know. Would you go would you go back in time and right now the ought to be our right is having a big uproar Pete because they've got got a guy that has not made today are comment hoping. For. Our comp to die and get out. It is what it is it has been a good statement by. All of the good guys back in the Christmas of 2016. The government in my car rolled up Paladino out of our New York State. It sounds familiar for some reason. What you're what the campaign culture in the state Buick Buick and the air a lot. He and that. Our new York and that and they ask again right. Oh who you like to see go in 2017. Meaning like go lot of offers horror. Portugal. And the guy there and I'd like to see our Barack Obama I up man out this. You only two years and then. At ad that want to be the first part as many as well. All of articulate. Our policies that he would like to see. I'm Michelle. Go back to being a are they are male co director oracle Paul many outback. Zimbabwe. And calm fully lived in caves where are Maxi meet guerrilla. Bands would be most. Are comparable. Now how many how how would that compare now of course that's been forgotten. But the benefits of the glad to what that all work was. I'm referring to and I mean that's important time that I do not track we're going to be in trouble with this subject. Birdie I rest of his career or your presidency. Yeah I I understand we're under oh yeah we're all aware I understand your concern NIC and this is where IE. You know I believe there are things in this country that are more important then money. And there's a place we gotta provide some sort of moral leadership to transcend. The mud in the muck in the mire in if he can't do that. I just think it really undermines the presidency and he's very significant way appreciate your call there Rick. Over on the text line. Some of the items here. I guess in response to our conversation about what's happened and social media and dialogue. Vince there's a gangsters paradise but there are no gangsters in paradise. You are or become who you hang out with. Its Paul out of Greenfield. Vince I never make death jokes are wishing death on anyone that's lost especially Democrats. Were good for you. I can only imagine if that was a conservative joking about Obama hypocrites. Yes. If I were Hillary I wouldn't get my issues wet. I'm not sure I get that went. There when goose completely over my head. Vince what are the retired fired. Needing security clearance but it's Tina. That's a very good question to you that's why I'm saying you couldn't legitimately raise a question about whether someone should have a security clearance. I just think it's very important it's not personal. Not because someone said something bad about me does that become an issue to review if that person doesn't need to have security clearance should never won. Kings it's pretty pretty simple. Also this it's not Britain's clearance clearance wants the job and the job belongs the employer Brin is no longer a government employee. Bernie's that info. Also on this subject of jokes. Vince you and I were born black and white since win his behavior equivalent to your skin worked really isn't. And we have this actually what is the definition of dead. So I guess were I pursing a rewards can like is. Is that Richard trying to do year and I'm assuming that's the idea. Absolutely unbelievable the liberal crime spree the Allegheny analogy is we catch him and on top of a store clerk trying to slash just throw with a gun is standing shooting his kids liberals wanted to charge the court. As the purpose. Because they called again the N word while being robbed yet there's a lot of nonsense that's gone on in the name of people love to hide the time behind race stone thing. And all too common. Vince to try and change the brim of his hairspray we would hear about it to Cisco thing trump could say death to Obama it would not be. Breaking news within seconds it certainly would be. May be all look for vets. Officials are great day enjoyed talking with you again Jeb Bush. This is still Vince Coakley radio program.
