Throughout my broadcast career, I’ve always sought to be objective wherever possible. ------

I do however draw the line when it comes to discussing racism, slavery, are the availability of assault weapons on our streets, in our urban communities. ------

Those are no brainers, there are no two reasonable sides to those issues, one side is right and the other is wrong! 
It was with my intention to present a balanced program, that we invited  a”local Republican brother” to be a part of our discussion on the impact of former President Donald Trump, on the Republican Party and the 91 state and federal criminal charges, he is facing. -----

It’s not unusual for me, thru out my several decades of doing talk radio to have a Republican point of view, on my show.
Unfortunately,  that didn’t go so well this time as you will hear, when the show is posted. -------

Esteemed former StLouis defense Attorney Forriss Elliott Sr., a longtime resident of Atlanta Georgia was invited to give us more insight into Fani Willis, the African American Fulton County DA, who has charged President Trump and 19 codefendants with numerous charges, involving breaking Georgia state election laws. ------

Simply put they tried to change the outcome of the votes, that were cast for the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election, President Joe Biden. ------

Michael Wesley Jones, longtime Senior Editorial Columnist for the St.Louis  American Newspaper, joined us for an in-depth look at the impact President Trumps, legal issues are likely to have on our criminal justice system and the nation as a whole. 
Jones continues to question how a disgraced twice impeached former President Trump,  was still able to get the second highest vote total, in the history of presidential elections, having received over 75 million votes, in his bid for reelection. ------

There was a feeble attempt, to have the management at kdhx, not post this show based on absolutely nothing, but the “local Republican brother’s” desire, to not have this conversation go public. ------

Thanks to kdhx station manager Kelly Wells, that attempt was ineffective and the show will post as planned. ------
