Mark Logas will be filling in for Bud Hedinger on Good Morning Orlando on WFLF-AM 540/102.5-FM. On Thursday, June 1st, Markís guests will include an update with Mike Mannino, the man who always paid his monthly mortgage on time with the cancelled checks to prove it but still lost his home because the mortgage company and bank claimed in court he hadnít paid since 2007. The court required no proof from the mortgage company or the bank and refused to allow Mikeís cancelled checks into evidence. Now, FL AG Pam Bondi has filed a lawsuit against the mortgage company, heís filed formal complaints against four judges through the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and the story that we broke on GMO is gaining national attention in Mikeís fight to preserve his civil liberties.

On Friday, June 2nd, Mat Staver joins Mark to talk about the Southern Poverty Law Centerís latest attempt to destroy Liberty Counsel in order to silence their efforts to represent religious freedom.
