The Woke Crowd Must Be Fuming Over Atlanta Hosting the World Series

"Of course, the big World Series, I really followed much of the World Series other than I'm pretty excited about the Atlanta Braves. Considering what Major League Baseball stupidly did to the city of Atlanta and all the business owners, I saw somebody this morning on TV say that what these businesses lost in revenue by having the All-Star Game moved out of Atlanta over George's common sense election reform laws, they've more than made up for with the World Series. That I think was governor Brian Kemp on Fox and Friends this morning said that. So I mean, Stacey Abrams and the woke crowd has to be really mad at the World Series winding up in Atlanta. After the crap, they pulled on Atlanta with the

Democrats and Zuckerberg Had a Plan for Georgia, Republicans Didn't

"25 of the 26 cities and counties that receive the $1 million from Zuckerberg center for technology and civic life were one by Biden in 2020. The ten largest center for technology civic life grants in Georgia are the following Fulton Cobb gwinnett da cab. Clayton Douglas Cherokee won by Trump, Henry N muskeg. By mispronouncing of them, I'm sorry. I don't live in Georgia. The 9 out of ten of the biggest counties received massive money from Zuckerberg in fact Fulton county and Cobb county and gwinnett county received a combined $15 million. From the Zuckerberg center for technology and civic life for the actual administration of election. I know a lot of you are saying how on earth is this possibly legal, while the attorney general of Georgia didn't think to do anything about this? The Secretary of State Brad raffensperger was perfectly fine with this. Governor Brian Kemp signed a consent degree of Stacey Abrams that allowed the downfall of Georgia to occur. The federalists continues by saying the center for technology and civic life demanded the promotion of universal mail in voting through suspending election laws, extending deadlines that favored mail in over in person voting. I just want to reemphasize this. You have a private company or corporation or nonprofit funded with $420 million that comes in and demands the suspension of the law. Where the state legislatures this was in my opinion, one of the sneakiest, Treacher at most treacherous and deceitful actions but honestly, the state legislatures in Georgia, they did not meet in the summer of 2020 best of my knowledge about election integrity at all. The summer leading up to the election they should had a special session in July, they should have said hold on a second, we need to have a pregame meeting here. We gotta have a huddle. And this goes to show how weak incompetent and spineless the Republican Party is.

"The legislature may need to deal with where we're still working with them and in that regard so we remain very open-minded about that but i will tell you they've been very supportive of me using Millions of dollars out of the governor's emergency fund for our crime suppression unit. We've done over twelve thousand vehicle stops we've been in over three hundred and fourteen chases we've arrested you know. I think it's three hundred people now. They had outstanding warrants. Eleven those for murder Recovered stolen weapons. We've been pounded. I think over six hundred cars now and so we're making a dent And we're continuing press Those at the city that atlanta police departments been working with us. But we're also oppressed in the policy makers To join us in doing us in this fight. Keep our family safe now last question for you before we get out of here With all the economic data out there and the healthcare and it looks like most of the cova delta variance situation at starting to shift north. It does seem to be seasonal How do you work with the governor's around the state when it comes to combat cove particularly now a as it's spreading around the country and we've gotten so contentious you do have to deal with a lot of democratic governors as well. What's the interplay there at at that sort of level you know the main thing. I've been doing a talk and come on neighbors what they're seeing it. We're kind of you know these waves come and everybody's kind of get hit at the same time and you know we saw that door to kinda starting in florida and it moved up. And that's moved alabama tennessee and it kind of came from some of those states mississippi and others down from missouri through texas arkansas and mississippi and so on some conversations with my fellow governors about what they're saying what they're dealing with just so we knew when it started here What it was gonna be like. You know kind of looking at their modeling. See how long we thought this would last. That helps us prepare for bed capacity and really which was never issue here are issue here was like everywhere else around. The country was having enough staffing. And we've taken very aggressive actions to get off managed staffing to our hospital and then also calling up up to twenty five runs the national guard to just be support staff and hospital. Some of that's medical but a lot of it is just helping you know with logistics point people in the right direction inter and data and computers or the medical staff could be caring for patients. And i tell you. It's been a godsend. I hear from the hospital for every day that they are so thankful for national guard. And i'd remind are lifting around the country that we had over two hundred of our door to national guard supporting the border patrol mission. Doing all they can to help but not crisis down there and you know we had post building the wall before it was stopped and certainly a lot of people serving in iraq and afghanistan and our our thoughts and prayers continued to be those thirteen families. That lost Some great americans lost over there in that debacle and for all that served and those that gay dolton sacrifice were praying for them and their families as well. We got an enlisted. I know you gotta swearing in ceremony to get to so. I appreciate you being able to take some time on your day in in get to us. Thank you very much. Thank you governor. Brian kip governor of the state of georgia. Charlie takes visas. He's got an appointment to get to a square it end. You need to let him go so we will let him go but Glad he could stop by the economic news out of the southeast is actually remarkable georgia florida tennessee in particular And south carolina now showing some real economic growth. Despite the covert lockdowns are not really the lockdowns just people staying home and stayed in place because they were security the delta variant the economic situation southeast continuing to rebound texas as well doing great. But not as good as georgia right now. The governor had time. i'm sure would appointed aright. Didn't have time to talk to him about the uga south carolina game.

Liberty dot com. That is i. Liberty g. a. dot com. Well get ready. The taliban is coming to street. That's right They're hiring lobbyists. A leading figure in the afghan resistance is retained. A washington lobbyist seek military and financial support against the taliban according to a lobbying contract Ahmad masud the leader of one of the most prominent groups of fighters seeking out the taliban from power. Signed a contract this week with riot robert strike Who built a lobbying practice during the trump administration working with clients and others on k. Street i am also told that well. The taliban is seeking representation on k. Street yep as a matter of fact here comes this paragraph from the washington post. Three lobbyists also say they heard the taliban seeking representation on k. street as they seek international funding and legitimacy. They're all going to why not to china. You know the chinese actually do have a legit concern with taliban because the taliban are true believers the leaguers are muslim. And the chinese are exterminating them. They're trying to play nice. With the taliban hoping the talibans a desires to have international legitimacy this time and do things slightly different will help them. I'm not sure. Meanwhile the us state department continues to screw things up. This is from jim geraghty at national review. My reader who is trying to get his company's former employees that have afghanistan offers another update and another illustration of the kafka esque process of getting an afghan ally to leave the country. My readers says his senator's office has been helping him get through two employees of the state department who might be able to give him more useful. Information as emails are stuck in auto reply hill. In his words he was able to get a number for an afghanistan. American citizen legal permanent resident hotline from a call center in kentucky area code six zero six. I suspect it's the state department's kentucky counselors thinner in williamsburg. I explained the situation. He said a us legal. Permanent residents is twenty seventeen. His wife and kids visa interviews interrupted by closing of kabul embassy. His first response her first response was to read me verbatim. Text of the auto reply. Email that we've been receiving the us embassy in cabela's close blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. I let her do that on the off chance. There might be new information. There wasn't with woman on the hotline finished. Repeating the old not terribly helpful information. I said how do we get him. And his family out of afghanistan. My reader says the state department's hotline operators advice was to leave afghanistan. Contact any of the neighboring country us embassies travel to that embassy. Finish the interview process. Get the visas. Then buy tickets and fly to the. Us my reader replied that that step one is impossible without first having a visa and the taliban have made it clear. Afghans like his former employer's wife and children are allowed to leave and the northern border is closed afghan refugees. She did not have an answer. I'll make one defense of the state department employees. She didn't establish or get say setting the policies. She just gets to be the one answering the calls to the hotline and offering utterly useless recommendations. The plight of these afghans is now a catch twenty two. They cannot leave afghanistan without a visa and without a functioning embassy in the country. The us government cannot issue them visas and they cannot get out of afghanistan to a neighboring country to get visas.

He's going to change the rules to require only 51 votes to do anything. That eliminates the filibuster, and it makes the minority virtually in material in the Senate. And he will undo those tax breaks that have given us the greatest economy we've ever had in the history of our country before the pandemic, it He will undo that regulatory process. And Lord knows what he might do with respect to issues like the Second Amendment or packing of the Supreme Court, where Trump's legacy will live forever and ever. With the three appointees Unless, um, Chuck Schumer decides otherwise. So I just I can't overstate the importance. Uh, All of your listeners being concerned about the election and having confidence in it, and we need to continue those investigations that are ongoing. Bye bye. Y'all's native son, Doug Collins, who is my dear friend. Um they need to do the work and look into all those allegations. But on January the fifth, we've got a whole separate issue to be Del Phia, and it's not just the nation. This watching us. It's the world this watching us. Yeah, I'm getting called from press is far away in Germany, Um, wanted to talk about the election in Georgia, for God's sake, So the world is watching, and it's critically important Now that we re elect those two folks. Send David and Kelly the Washington to make sure that the legacy of Donald Trump has continued. I have to agree, and the Republicans that steak I mean the if you really look at it are constitutional. Base is at stake. Our founding fathers did not have this in mind. I what? They had a lot in mind concerning this, but we are being circumvented a smudge as possible, Senator. And here is I have a basic question that I've been getting all week and last week and off the air and in the with friends and so forth, but The question is being asked. What can we do that now? I'm a get rare specific. One of my one of my friends is Brian Kemp, Governor Brian Camp. I respect him. He's been generally a good governor. This is something though, that Has really been in the forefront. Where is Brian Camp? You hear it on the national news? The talk shows So can you give us an idea of what He can do to help this situation and make Georgians feel more comfortable. Not just Georgians, but the country Because can he help? Can he do anything? Uh, short of calling in the Legislature. And that's something that we've just got to discuss. Sure. Well, first of all, um I think Brown camps have an excellent governor over the last two years. We're seeing our state. Uh, thrive economically. Um, and even during penned, Emmick, Um, we've we're not California We're not New York, where all the restaurants and entertainment places are completely shut down Georgians an opinion that Brian Kemp and in my opinion, too. Are smart enough to figure out when they ought to go out and where they all go out and how they can protect themselves from this virus. When we are out in public, and Brian's done a good job. Um, I know he's criticized has been criticized by by everybody from the president on down about the election. But let me tell you This the statutes and Georgia they govern elections. Give absolutely no power to the governor to interfere in the election process. There is nothing that Brian Camp could have done that he has not done. When it comes to the election process. Okay, here, here it is he really within the hands of the secretary of state. Could Brian have called a special session? Sure. Uh, what could they have done with respect to the election on January? 3rd? Uh, I'm inhuman November 3rd that they can't do when they convene in January. Nothing. You can't change the election process during the middle of the stream. Can we not? Can we? Not though Senator Chambliss to bring him in the session and say All we want to always want a mandate is signature verification and, um, bipartisan review of the ballots as their process that I've got about one minute, but go ahead. Yeah. Yeah. I think you're gonna see that. Uh, I think you're gonna see closer scrutiny of those signatures. And what the place on November 30. You got to remember that we had more in absentee ballots this time around. Than we've ever had before Foreign away more so it requires more people. Anybody who wants to be a poll watcher or or be a part of that process. In contact your local party folks there and participate in making sure that those folks that send ballots in or who they say they are critical that happened. We need nobody voting that's not authorized to vote. And I really appreciate those comments and just encouraging our listeners and the voters in general in Georgia to get out and vote and I want to thank you for your time this morning.

Little in the middle of three generations of listen like my now 79 year old father introduced me to you in 1992. I have since it's introduced you to my now 30 old son, and we're all example. Well, I appreciate that is fabulous, and I cannot thank you enough. That's really appreciate it. So back to the city policy. I think they the Trump team had to distance themselves. For the simple reason. Over the weekend at Newsmax. She gave an interview that the first state she was going to blow up. Is Georgia. That's her words. And she said something else I thought where they got my attention and must have got their attention. She said something along the lines that Doug Collins Actually beat Kelly Leslie. And so if that effects the Georgia Senate races The Trump team can't be part of that. I'm not. I'm not saying whether it's true or not. I kind of hoped she does prove all of that. But I think the Trump team had to distance themselves in case it cost them. The Senate. Ah, that Doug Collins beat Kelly La Flor. Yes, because members of three person race and nobody got over 50%. She alluded to in one of the interviews over the weekend. Well, you know, they put something put something else out. But they said that the reason that they had to throw her under the bus Her overboard is what she said about the governor there. Brian Kemp. He said that Brian Kemp Was being blackmailed and bribed by a bunch of communists in Venezuela. Because he bought the Dominion Machines and an implement of put them in the service in Georgia on that he was he was part of the conspiracy. Now that I know what Trump has had problems with Kemp, often on But when you got somebody on your legal team, claiming that a Republican governor is in bed, with Venezuelan communists going on the way back to Hugo Chavez Then you've got somebody that I think the phrase that was used by some is jumped the shark. Uh, but you're you're Your theory could be the operative theory as well. I'm struck by how many people who think that this is a head fake. Sydney is not really out. Sydney has been reassigned while making it look like she's been thrown overboard. And under the boss. Which then frees her to actually move in ways that she wants independently of the campaign. And apparently without The imprimatur of the campaign, thereby and therefore not Implicating the campaign in anything that she does, but that she That her work is, uh, is appreciated. It's you know it, Z. Always fascinated me. The various thought processes. That a company such unexpected, shocking and this is the last thing anybody expected to have any. But Sidney Powell was actually the brains of that legal team. And then for this to happen, it just it just doesn't doesn't compute anyway, Kevin. I appreciate the call very much. We got another brief break here at the top of the busy broadcast our and obscene profit time out. There is much more when we get back. So hang tough..

They're kind of the same debate we had about a month ago. But the mass debate in Georgia is not really about mask. It's about controls about governments about power. It's about what you can make citizens do now The States Governors Republican by the name of Brian Kemp. He said that Not gonna have a mandate. You kind of explained why today and Preston I know that many well intentioned and well informed Georgians wanna mass mandate. And while we all agree that wearing a mask is effective.

"Friday morning news continues on the twenty second day of may six minutes past the hour and we start in Georgia this morning that's where data on virus infection that was a key driver in governor Brian Kemp's aggressive push to reopen the state was flawed in may have distorted perceptions of progress Georgia department of public health said that the department include anti body tests when calculating the total number of tests conducted since early April governor Brian Kemp was asked Thursday about the data first of all I just want people to know that I can be confident in the data but also look we're not perfect we make mistakes when we do that we'll only change it and make sure that people are aware of that you know spoke about earlier in wrong then you can inspect that here in just a second as well so I I guess what I'm trying to say is this is our president of asco at surveillance to be dispatcher be able to expand this quickly we're working diligently Hera a very competent team of skilled actually CVC transacted to me are just working on that the data meeting many times daily going over these data I don't want to go you know to change it and in the way the website worked and we got the assistance from Sam's programmers to make it look professional and stated we are working closely with them to ensure that the graphics to get up there the graphs that are displayed a consistent with the way we get that beginning our just look at the data and we're meeting with it literally daily to ensure that that's fine arts and crafts Nero and we'll be continuing now for weeks the department of public health is included antibody test which can detect if someone once had the virus with diagnostic tests that measure active infection in its total tally of about four hundred three thousand test experts say it's misleading to count the test together because it distorts the state's capacity to track current infections as cases increase in Alabama health officials say there's a need for more intensive care unit beds not Montgomery mayor Stephen Reid that sounding the alarm this week is a central Alabama residents who need ICU beds may not be able to get them if you're from Montgomery a unionized you bet you're in trouble if you're from central Alabama eighty nice you bet you may not be able to get one because our health care system has been maxed out and so these prices are being diverted to Birmingham and we don't want to lose anyone any life because we don't have the resources to treat them in this community we want to make sure that we're doing everything we can to keep not only our health care system operable.

"Oh now my conversation with governor. Brian Kemp the number of people in the hospital for covid. Nineteen has declined below. One Thousand Really. Good News Joining me to talk about that. And the other news edge of the virus and the recovery. The governor of Georgia. Here Brian. Good afternoon sir. How are you look really good news but we gotta keep our foot on the gas? What is working and I just really want to thank the people of Georgia third here into the guidance guidelines and and helping us keep moving this right direction. I I get the sense out there. Take for example. The issue this weekend with the With the antibody test got roped into numbers and then pulled out that there are a lot of people who they they. Don't trust the. Can you talk about the antibody number issue? That happened this weekend. Yeah it was just a little Dr Public Health officials. If you've immaculate imagine working long hours and you know many days during the pandemic it's unfortunate that they're they're getting a tight in some ways and that was the data entry area era was corrected and you know we apologize for that and move on. It's unfortunate that people are making a big deal out of that we got a you know a tremendous amount of data points that we're dealing with every day information is on the Department of Public Health website. And it's correct you know we've had a couple of things that that weren't at times but you know we own. That moved on her doing our best every day and I just appreciate all those public health officials that have been working so hard during the pandemic. But it's really not a big issue. People can trust the date. I certainly do you know. There's lots of data points that we look at Besides number new cases every day. I mean we're talking to hospital. Ceo's looking at our bed counts and many other issues that are happening on the ground. Every day that that show the signals are headed in the right direction. What we're doing is working and I just want to urge origins to continue to adhere to that guy now. There was a report out this morning I saw the. Ajc mentioned that you had talked to the president or the president had mentioned you on a call the other day that he has noticed The reopening in Georgia and the things seem to be going well had a great call yesterday. Actually our first lady aren't. Ken was on on the call with the nation's governors and the president and the vice president his team and The nation's first lady. Melania trump was on there really focus on children's issues mental health issues and other things that are becoming quite a concern son that I've been talking about. I've been worried about for a long time. Now that there are ill effects of being sheltered in place and not having our kids in school or be an avenue ability for them to be in public embiid or daycare or you know a lot of screenings for cancer and other treatments or down and so there's a lot of repercussions By sheltering in place and not having our businesses than normal Things that we do every day up and running in our state now is a big focus of the call yesterday but also a lot of great news coming out of the White House. They of sinister a lot of testing kits. It's allowing us to ramp up our tests and you're seeing that in our numbers there. We moved from We're twenty per capita and testing today out of the fifty four states territories a month ago. We were forty six. Oh we continue to ramp that up which is a big part of being able to reopen and get our economy back going in the state and I just appreciate the. Pp they've sent to our nursing homes and then we had Quite a conversation about Rendez severe medical treatment that they shipped out to the states. We've now received to those treatments and we've got a good those out to hospitals to really true Treat the worst of the covid patients that we have in the hospital now so hopefully. That's going to be helpful to them. Is that kind of trial continues. And there's there's a protocols on how the hospitals have to do and and basically make sure that they're documenting How that's working. And then lastly they talked about this potential maxine. That's been through a phase one trial that they're cautiously optimistic about it doesn't mean it's GonNa work out but it looks really good right now as they move into the next stage and that was very promising to hear from the President. You know it was a really good call yesterday. The the country wide numbers are starting to look a lot like what we're seeing in Georgia. So we're all excited about that. Can you give us an update on the Gainesville in the Albany situations? The we had the bad fallout in in Darty county but also the hotspot in Gainesville. Albany is done really well. Their hospital numbers are looking really good. They've peaked and has been coming down for quite a while. Now it's important that they continue to follow the guidance down there to make sure you don't have you know a recreation spy. We continue to focus on testing. And you know especially there in the communities around there to make sure that we you know have continued. Add that under control. We continue to work in the nursing ounce and all parts of our state but obviously down. There's oil where we had some issues early. I was Gainesville last Friday. I'll tell you they're doing a great job up there. The community has embraced fight with testing and raising awareness. Especially in those Lino community John King Insurance Commissioner. John go up there several weeks ago. He speaks fluent Spanish You know is the first Latino constitutional officer ever instated Jordan. He's colleague the charges. He's got thirty years in. The National Guard was actually deployed to New York and to New Orleans to help with the covert fight. And he's back home now so he's got a lot of experience and knows what to do and he's done a great job and we visited the hospital where we're standing up a mobile facility much like we did in Albany that sort of come along very well but they're holding their own up there Starting to flat and get on the other side of the peak a little earlier than I thought it would so we're just continuing to urge everybody there to follow. The guy says well into us all these best practices to help continue to drive that curve down and endless get over that hotspot up there in the Hall County Area Now. Just two more questions for you here. One is we keep hearing about this worry of a rebound in the state water public health officials telling you about the potential for rebound well. There's definitely the potential for that. When the flu season starts kick back up you know this fall distorts the temperature start cooling down when they see that certainly into the winter. You know what that looks like. I don't know that people really know for sure some speculated it may be worse than this round you know but I think there's others that thing you know maybe this thing plays out and you know it's not as bad. I don't know that anybody really noticed. It's a lot like these models. We've been following. They were good to give guidance for most of them. I think probably all of them were wrong. They end up changing a great deal. But I you know to me Eric. I think we have to take the fight to the virus You know it's going to be here for a while until we get a treatment are boxing. I I do believe there's reasons to be optimistic about that but still we're going to have to go into the fall probably without having that so we gotta figure out you know how we open our school's of how we go back to continuing open our economy back so that we don't have the negative effects of this economic devastation. That we're seeing right now. With one point six billion. Georgia's and that's all for unemployment. You know it's putting a strain on our budget which can't get ten you that way so we gotta figure out And that's what we're doing everything is we're hunkering down and figuring out how to fight to bottles now the COVID nineteen battle but also battle to put people back work to turn this economic engine that we had before the started and the great joy that the president did with that and the great job that we've done in the state we have the lowest unemployment we've ever had since we started keeping records at three point one percent Before all this started. And we gotta get that back. And that's what we're working on governor last question for you. I've been was reading today and article at CNN about the restaurant industry and some Georgia restaurants recited that With social distancing in place they they're still thinking economically. It's going to be difficult for them to reopen that they may have state to go Longer is there any sign on the horizon that we may soon be able to even more increase the amount of people in restaurants to be able to get them back up to full steam restaurants reopened excellent point and that is true? There's been some specially Ryan restaurants that just can't make the numbers work under the current guidance. We're looking at that right now. To See you know we made We made a small adjustment the other day to try to help some of those. I think that's been fish. We'll continue to look at that as we watched the numbers. You get the guy that's from daughter to me and her team at public health but there's some created things going on in our local communities. I know a lot of the local officials are looking at Closing certain streets where people can pull tables outside so they can expand their capacity to sit people to serve more customers in a safe environment. You know was in Carterville last week and Don then at a local restaurant up there and they were they were doing really good that being Maria where they could do something like that and so I want to continue to urge weren't with the local officials on things like that. But we gotta we gotta keep thinking outside the box and and looking at the guidance and move. Move it as the date of moves in a methodical way. Like we've been doing but we also have to continue to be creative to make this work in this new environment that we're going to have to live with For for many months here in front of US until we get that cure or vaccine governor. Listen thank you very much for taking time out of your day To talk with us and that is great news and and hope we keep trending in the right direction and appreciate your hard work thanks David..

"Glad to have you joining me this morning and I got a question I got a question and you can feel free to call me if you want. My phone. Number is eight seven seven nine seven zero eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five question. Where is the blood on Brian? Kim's hands has anyone seen the blood on Brian. Kemp's hands because I was told that today would be the day. We would see the blood on Brian. Kim's hands we are two weeks now removed. We are officially now. Two weeks removed from the state beginning to reopen and people are beginning to move out of their houses whereas the blood on Brian. Kim's hands I was told there would be blood and if I WANNA see blood I gotTa Watch that movie. You you know the movie. What is that there will be blood there? There's no blood the number of people in hospitals in Georgia for Cova nineteen continues to go down. The number of new daily infections continues to go down. The number of people dying continues to go down. The State is headed in the right direction. There are pockets of increase in the state. We know where those pockets of increase are. We know why they are happening We know what to do to contain them that we have hospital capacity in the state if the number surge again people are headed out of their houses. Where's the blood on Brian? Kim's hands the national media told us we were all going to die in two weeks after. Brian Kemp reopen the state. We are now two weeks from Brian The we're we're all the dead bodies in fact hang on a second. Let me step away from the microphone. Real quick now. I'm I'm sorry I just I needed to look out. There are no vultures in the sky this morning hovering around the dead bodies. I don't see them. They're out there. There's not even. I can't even see clouds. There are no vultures where all the dead bodies now we may get a surge we may get an increase in the governor. There probably will be an increased. But that's been the whole point. The whole time is that we were going to see the numbers. Probably go back up some of people who get the virus but we have the hospital capacity in the the bed space and the ICU capacity to deal with the issue. The bellyaching from so many people is a little bit of a a a a silly nonsensical thing. Now the governor had a press conference yesterday and what he said. Is that bars. Nightclubs have to stay close to the end of the month Now there's a reason for this. There are actually a couple of reasons for this number one. bars nightclubs and live music venues. It's hard to get people when they're drinking too socially distance and we still need people socially distance. You still need to be wearing a mask on. Probably the way by the way So I I'm seeing this thing. There's this thing that blew up last night with a one of the the common good conservative types you. So there's this conservatism isn't good enough for some people anymore. And they've decided we need to reinvent it. As as common good conservatism. Which is big government conservatism? Which is the big government. Gets to tell you how to live your life in a way. That's good for everyone else around you and the rest of US would call this big government. Nanny state ISM THEY SAY NO. It's one-size-fits-all conservatism. We can't have regionalism. We federalism we have to have the nanny state in Washington. Tell us what to do. And we comply with it. It it's conservatism. They can't really tell us what it means. Beyond that. But it's common good conservatism. And I see one of the leaders of the common good conservatism online last night. Saying Wearing a mask is cowardice. You wear a mask of fear. Why are you wearing a mask where to mask ridiculous? We we should defy any law. That tells us to wear masks all those of you. Who Know Anything about guns? Which is probably three quarters to two nine tenths of my audience. Which reminds me? I gotta go to Barrow Automotive by me new gun just because got to help the economy you know. If you don't know where borough automotive is you need to educate yourself but nonetheless most of you have guns. Why don't you put your finger on the trigger when you have a gun? What what why do you keep your? I mean if you are a gun safety class they teach you not to keep your finger casually on the trigger. Why why is it because you're scared of the gun? You don't put your finger on the trigger because you're scared you're era fearful literally little worry wart. No you don't do it because it's good gun safety. You don't do it because of respect for people around you you. You don't do it because accidents can happen. Same thing with the mask. People aren't wearing a mask because they're scared people are to because they they fear getting sick. No you get the mask on because about half the people who get this virus will never even know they'd had it in. They spread it to other people who die. Cheer the woman in Great Britain. She was a railroad worker Some guy got madder. Because he wasn't doing what she wanted him to do. to comply with social distancing and wearing a mask any spit in her face and said he had the virus. She's dead she died of the virus. Guy Actually did give it to her reminds me of the of the bus driver in Chicago. Who THE WOMAN STARTED. Berating him For not socially distancing He made her get off the bus. She had the virus. He died the bus driver. Did she lived? He died you. Don't you wear the mask to be socially responsible? You don't have to wear the mask everywhere but if you go to the grocery store there's a bunch of people do it you go into the grocery store. There's nobody ram don't worry about it in the live you're in the drive through at chick fillet don't necessarily worry about it. They they got themselves covered up themselves. You're good but it's about you. Transfer accidentally transmitting the virus. Not even knowing. You're sick to other people. That's how the viruses spreading so much because you start becoming contagious. Well before you know you're sick. In many cases you never know. You're sick but this whole idea of mass. Socially responsibilities is nonsensical to meet. It's crazy that the common good conservatives are the ones out there saying don't wear the Master and other just bench. Libertarians which suggests they won't be very successful with the advanced anything. No No. No offense to my Libertarian Frisbee. But when's the last time you guys actually got elected to something substantive but a okay seriously? Though where's the blood on Brian Kim's hands because we were told that everyone was going to die and we didn't know he came out yesterday with this press. Conference in bars nightclubs. You gotta stay closed. live in. You stay closed. Because as I said when you're drinking you're not socially distancing you're having a good time and Those seemed to be in the places that have reopened and saw rebounds that seems to be a big factor in the rebound is social interactions with people who have been drinking tins to help spread the virus. So those are going to be closed restaurants. Though can add more people. You'll be able to have tables up to ten from six to ten and you'll be able to have more people in your restaurant people to be socially distance but you can add more people per square foot to your restaurant which is a good thing Overnight summer camps gone can't happen the summer at least not yet They'll look at him again. The beginning of the month of the beginning of June but right now gone but day camps You will be able to ship your kid off for a day somewhere. You just won't be able to keep them there overnight. The data in Georgia. We will probably see a bit of a spike and in certain areas of the state. We for sure we'll see bits of spikes We we've seen this up in Gainesville with the poultry producers. We will probably see this and some other parts of the state but overall the data is good in the state of Georgia. We have more available hospital space now than at any time. We have fewer people in hospitals today with the virus than at any time since the major flare up in in Dougherty County. We have fewer dead people per day than anytime. We have fewer daily new cases. We're we're doing well as a state and people are doing what they need to do. People are still managing to be socially distant from one another. There are two hundred seventy three thousand nine hundred four total tests given so far A major skyrocket. Because this time last week if you'll recall this time last week We were barely over To we were right at two hundred thousand We we've got up seventy three thousand nine hundred four since then which is great thirty five thousand two hundred forty seven new cases about a thousand new cases reported six thousand two hundred. Twenty eight total hospitalizations. That number is is stabilizing. The daily rate is actually really good. The daily rate continues to show. Georgia's doing what it needed to do..

"To Brian Kemp who has the great pleasure of being of the governor of Georgia and has taken some dramatic action to end the lockdown in his state at least Mike Huckabee is threatening to drive to Georgia to get a hair cut and a new tattoo both of which he'll be able to do if you can find a spot on Mike Huckabee's polity that hasn't already got a tattoo anyway I aside from tattoo parlors and hair salons a governor cab what what else how much of Georgian life is getting back to normal with with this decision I will get a half million mark I thought you're gonna say that I had the great honor of being on the Rush Limbaugh show which I do and I'm very excited to be on you but things are actually going very well down here there's a you know a lot of opinions on a lot of noise from national press and a lot of political noise but I think you know from what we saw on the ground Friday and Saturday with many of our businesses the United close for three and a half weeks so it was a painful thing for me to do as a small business owner for over thirty years I know how tough it was on that on those folks but you know they helped us flatten the curve and get prepared with a lot of hospital bed capacity and other things to allow us to start moving forward and reopen our economy in a very measured why it went really well we had a update call with our law enforcement personnel on Sunday and actually had some of the lowest complaint volumes that we've seen in the last on there and all the different orders that we've had so you know some businesses decided not to open which I certainly have that right it wasn't a mandate that was the choice of people add and you know the ones that did open I think they did in a very responsible way I had a lot of people giving me comments and feedback on how well the status mobiles cleaned in the process and procedures they had us American ingenuity now people can build a tough situation they just want to know what the rules are in and out of play the game well it's also individual liberty too because it means ages somebody's gonna have so long that's twenty three Elm Street and they want to re open but if somebody at thirty four Elm Street doesn't want to open the hassle on their free to choose what it is they wish to do how how scientific as it were is it well with the decisions that you made in deciding which businesses you would permit to reopen but which you would rather stay closed and I mean when you get a lot of research and information well you know we've been following the science and data management you know doctor Kathleen Mooney whose you know well educated forty years and public health and epidemiology miss you on the best in the country I believe she's worked all over the world you know I didn't make this decision by myself she supported it based on the data and all the models but this is even more than that models that information talk in the hospital CEOs knowing that their capacity you know the hospitals where you're under utilized in Georgia preparing for the cove it nineteen peak and I think they felt like we were getting in the position where the encounter productive to them they have all these bets and and taken a financial hit and felt like a measured step forward was good but you know in Georgia a lot of people don't realize we never shut down businesses other than the ones that are re opened the other day everybody else could stay open under what we call it a night the basic minimum operations which allowed you know businesses to to do whatever they could to keep the business viable in a limited fashion and encourage teleworking and you know all the best practices to protect their employees but you know we did shut down so on that that we felt like you know at the time could could municipal make the virus spread quicker obviously barber shops and hair salons where you're having a lot of close contact but with our new measures we have you know we got stipulations to account for that you know they have to wear a mask there's you know cleaning procedures after each person comes in appointment only you know just all these different things that you know a barbershop or hair salon not a gathering spot anymore supplies right get a service go in and go out and I was one day that we can change back get back to normal but right now at least allows people to make a living I had a had one hairdresser that gather workforce want to Saturday and he told me a story Monday morning that that she was so thankful for the order and she had been working literally lock in the shop door would open and when a customer came in temperature check them later me hand sanitizer made him have a mask on the nine thousand down the chair gave my hair cut unlocked the door and let him out one person and one person now it should tell the guy said look I'm so thankful because I literally was not gonna be able to buy a car this month and I think I think that's where a lot of hardworking Georgians and a lot of hard working Americans are right now they've done what the government is **** but they're ready to get back at it because they're just not willing to risk losing everything that they worked so hard for you know over over a virus and you know we're still encouraging people to social distance and and follow the orders that we have in place but we are allowing

"Multiple people unless you can sanitize after each use for example in lieu of offering plates used drop boxes. You closed nurseries. Childcare Sunday school classes or related functions prior to shelter in place keep them closed medically fragile. An elderly Georgians should shelter in place and not go to in person services and choir and choir practice should be cancelled that they will not require to be cancel but should be cancelled. The shelter in place order is still active. It expires at eleven fifty nine PM. On April thirtieth for most Georgians medically fragile and elderly. Georgians should plan to continue shelter in place until May thirteenth. The governor's office encourages everyone to follow the CDC in Georgia Department public health guidelines to prevent and spread the virus the CDC is telling people. Don't listen to the governor of Georgia. Don't do anything stay home. Now let me give you. The parameters of the governor's order again. Shelter in place is still in effect until may first restaurants and dining rooms of private. Social Clubs will be allowed to reopen on a limited basis. On April twenty-seventh subject to new restrictions theaters will be permitted to engage in minimum basic operations subject to new restrictions bars nightclubs amusement park. Ride operators live performance venues. They still got to be closed until may thirteenth. The reality is that nothing's really changing between now and and yesterday and the reality is overwhelmingly businesses or not actually going to change the reality is. You're probably not GONNA be able to go to the business you want to go to today. Because they're going to be close you know might Jim Steak'll mos- I I don't know of any gyms that are opening today. My Gym is going to stay closed until the Middle Lemay. Your gym probably is too. If you have one I could use a barbell. By the way I'm tired of the dumbbells I get enough dumbbells in my life. Washing the White House press briefings and the reporters asking questions. There are too many dumbbells out there. But you're Jim's not gonNA open by the way. The movie theaters aren't going to open. I got a text from a bowling alley that our family goes to that said that given the parameters by which the governor says they can open they can open. So who's actually going to open? Under this order. There will be some businesses that try most of them won't most restaurants won't but how will the businesses try well pretty straightforward right? Now will not today yesterday. Yesterday was against the law. You you know a lady who styles hair and she does it out of her house. Yesterday it was against the law for her to have you in her house to do it today. It is not you know where your friends today. It's not that I know people who've gotten black-market haircuts in the past week Philip. And today it's not against the law teasing teasing teasing my wife. My child here. It is is Phillips wife cut his hair. It's not really black market but still actually competent jobs on all accounts and yesterday were if they were. Let's see. This is the bizarre part if they were licensed arguably it was against the law but today it's not in the that's the point of the governor's order is there are barbers out there. There are massage therapists out. There who know their clients their clients know them. They have a relationship and yesterday was against the law for them to help. Yesterday it was against the law for them to give them massage with a haircut today. It's not what's really going to change between now and next month an even more slow spreading. I hope that's a good thing. We should be rooting for to slow down even more. It looks like it may pick up a little bit of Steam. Georgia's it's still. It's still pretty slow but we should be rooting for the governor to find a path forward I think. Now let's see have we. Do we have any updates from the Department of Health? I'm trying to find the depart. The you know the Department of Health it IT UPDATES. Its website every day at noon and six pm but lately it's been posting. Its numbers a little early. But today they're not doing that so we're still holding at twenty one thousand eight hundred eighty three cases. I got a question for you and feel free to call in if you one. Eight seven seven nine. Seven irrigates seven seven nine seven three.

"Liberty G. A. DOT COM Thanks to them for sponsoring. That's not my poor point in doing it off. Get into the program later it's just You do need to be made aware of this now The president through the governor under the bus again yesterday. I'm not going to actually get into his second round audio of condemning. The governor for doing this. I want to get into this stood St- story from the Associated Press President Donald Trump and vice president. Mike Pence repeatedly told governor. Brian Kemp of Georgia that they approved of his aggressive plan to allow businesses to reopen. Just a day before. Trump pulled an about face and publicly bashed the plan. According to two administration officials the green light from Pinson trump came in separate private conversations with the Republican governor. Both before Kim announced his plan to East Corona virus restrictions and after it was unveiled on Monday. The official said trump's sudden shift came only after top. Health advisors reviewed the plan more closely and persuaded the president that Kim was risking further spread of the virus by moving too quickly. I told the governor of Georgia. Brian Kip that I disagree strongly with his decision to open. Certain facilities trump said Wednesday. Just a day after telling reporters that he trusted Kim's judgment. He knows what he's doing. The president said on Thursday. He was even harder on the governor. I wasn't happy with Brian Kemp. I wasn't happy at all the extraordinary reversal and public criticism of GOP. Ally is only the latest in a series of contradictory and confusing messages from the president. On how and when he believes governor should e stay at home mortars intended to stop the spread of the deadly virus it demonstrates the political risk for governors and following the unpredictable President's guidance trump has been urging states to begin reopening for two weeks believing that certain portions of the country are now ready to resume aspects of life even against the recommendations of many of his own own health experts even though few states have met the benchmarks established by the White House. The president has cheered on efforts to liberate some states that has offered encouragement to the states. That announced plans to forge forward. Kim was among the first Republican governors. Take the cue. His order announced Monday allows businesses like Jim's Tattoo Parlors and bowling alleys to open on Friday under certain restrictions. That would be today when asked Tuesday about Kim's decision trump supporter. The governor saying he's a very capable man. He knows what he's doing. He's done a good job. As governor behind the scenes the administration had also been supportive. The president spoke to keep more than once about the plan and both trump and vice president. Mike Pence called Kemp on Tuesday to praise his performance as governor and his plan to reopen according to two administration officials who spoke on conditions of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discussed the conversations but on Wednesday members of the White House's virus task force revisited. The plan and felt it was too soon and would be difficult to defend in that afternoon's press briefing Dr Deborah burks. Who helped lead the white? House's Corona virus response then spoke to the president after the meeting and suggested it was too soon to reopen Georgia. An assertion with which the president agreed according to the official trump then called. Kipp and asked Kim to slow down his plan to which the governor said no said the official. The governor suggested the two men continue the discussion on another call but they did not speak again before the briefing which trump said he opposed some of the particulars of the plan to reopen. Trump noted that keeps reopening violated the White House guidelines and suggested. He would intervene if he saw something. Totally egregious on Thursday. He suggested he was particularly concerned by the idea. That camp would reopen spas. I want the state to open more than he does much more than he does. But I didn't like to see spas at this early stage nor did the doctors trump acknowledged he consult his health consulted his health experts. Burke said Dr Anthony Fauci and considered tried to block the proposal but I decided and we all agreed. You've got to watch it. We'll see what happened now. The rowdies he doesn't have the power to stop it. The governor thinks he's on the right path. I will tell you that. The trend lines on Monday and Tuesday. Buttressed the governor's findings that we were below the rate of a ray transmission of one Yesterday given some of the data that came in I I hope I explained on Tuesday and Wednesday. What rate of transmission is so essentially your rate of transmission needs to be below one if the virus rate of transmission is below a factor of one? Then the virus will stop spreading if the virus is above one the virus will produce the metric are. Rt represents the effective reproduction rate of a virus calculated. It lets you estimate how many secondary infections are likely to incur occur from a single infection specific spot values over one mean we expect more cases the higher above one the more quickly the virus will spread values below one mean the virus cannot spread in the community the further below one the more quickly the virus has stopped spreading and will die out when the governor opened the state on Monday and two in the Tuesday is he in the majors Nelson the rate of transmission in Georgia was point six yesterday because of some of the incoming data the viral rate was above one. It was at one point zero six today. I'm checking right now. There's a website. Rt Dot live where you can check and at rt dot live Georgia's rate is back down to a one which is still not great. The adjusted sampling shows that actually they had to change and it wasn't really above one or was it really below one at all with some of the new data that came in It may have fallen two point nine nine but otherwise it's about one so so it is flatlined that means it can still spread in the community. It has not declined in the community. So Georgia is right. On the cusp of being able to reopen. The data does suggest that there will be viral spread when we reopen..

"brian kemp" Discussed on KCRW

"Brian. Kemp was the secretary of state and Georgia and was also the man in charge of overseeing the election. Abrams argued Kemp pursued policies that kept many voters from casting ballots. Kemp insisted his actions were done to prevent voter fraud. Abrahams has since started an organization called fair fight action to advocate for election reform in Georgia, which she said at the hearing is needed in a big way incompetence and malfeasance operate in tandem and the sheer complexity of the state's voting apparatus fluids voter suppression into a nearly seamless system the targets voter, registration valid access and ballot-counting asked her what you meant by incompetence and Melfi since operating in tandem in Georgia. We had a secretary of state who released the voter ID information for six million voters, including their social security numbers their addresses. He did not hold the counties to account for how they treated absentee ballots, which meant that depending on which county you happen to vote in you got a different form of democracy in Georgia. That is incompetence then you couple that with his malfeasance, which was that. He took fairly benign rules that are designed to keep put a rolls clean. And instead you. As the MS targeted weapons to eradicate voters that he did not think would benefit his elections. This is someone who in twenty seventeen wipe the rolls clean of more than six hundred thousand voters these single largest voter purge in a year under his tenure, and he did so right before he decided to stand for office as governor he manipulated the system by encouraging counties to shutdown precincts more than two hundred closed under his tenure, and he took actions that put a chilling effect on people registering to vote, including using an exact match system that a federal judge told him the previous year before had the disproportionate effect on people of color and women. He agreed not to use the system and then the following year after he signs consent decree ask the legislature to restore his right to discriminate that is malfeasance going back to the Voting Rights Act unit supreme court their conclusion was look things. Have gotten so much better in these places where we had federal oversight, especially in places in the south where Jim crow laws are now gone, and we live up to the states. Now, they can handle this. Basically my question to you is this what role do you think the federal government should be playing writ large? I mean, it seems we have a system in this country where we decided that we do not want, you know, one single rule or the federal government deciding one size fits all for every single state to have an election or primary elections on every single day with uniform rules is that the only way to ensure though that everybody is treated equally that the federal government basically needs to take over election funding can the state's really truly be allowed to do this on their own. I think the states can be very efficient delivery systems for elections. But what the Voting Rights Act did was set a staff. Under which those elections could be managed monitored and executed by removing section five of the Voting Rights Act, we removed. The the guardrails that said here are the standards within which you have to operate and the minute those guardrails were removed. We saw that action happening at an extraordinary pace. I believe that it is absolutely appropriate for there to be a federal standard for democracy in America that we believe that every vote should count. If it is cast by an eligible legally eligible citizen to vote, but once that is set by the federal government, certainly I think that different states should be allowed to determine how those standards are met. When you live in a remote state like Alaska where it would be nearly impossible to require certain behaviors, or when you live in dense urban areas where there are adjustments made for traffic. Absolutely. You want local governments. Able to respond to the needs of their communities, but democracy shouldn't differ. You shouldn't not be allowed to vote simply because of where you live. And so I do believe that the federal standards that say you cannot be taxed for voting, which is what happens when you have to stand in four our lines because an incompetent secretary of state refuses to provide an adequate number of machines that that's problematic that in states were voter suppression activities four did the ability of voters to get to the polls because they move the polling places beyond the reach of public transit, those are deeply problematic decisions and those should not be allowed. And that's what a federal standard can set. It can say that here are the things that we absolutely require for every American and then the states can determine how they administer that process to ensure the best and must effective means of doing. So the reality it seems every time there's an election older people they go and vote. They are consistent voters. They turn out at higher rates younger voters less consistent turnout at lower rates. So how much of the turnout issue is about enthusiasm and interest. And is that a big piece of this is well people who just simply feel that. They're not that interested in casting a ballot. My concern is for those who are interested in casting a ballot who find themselves thwarted elderly African Americans who show up at polling places where they've been on the rolls for decades. Suddenly find their names missing those who are standing in lines because they live in the community that was under-resourced because they just didn't think those voters mattered as much turn out as a decision made by each individual American, and we as a country do not mandate voting. But when you choose to exercise your franchise, there should be no impediment. That is standing in your way. And that's the challenge with. Depression. We don't know how many people don't vote because it is too hard because they believe the system is rigged because they have faced challenges, and that should be the urgent question of.
