Rich White Liberals Were Triggered About Having Brown Neighbors
"Meanwhile, the situation in Martha's Vineyard, ladies and gentlemen, the great invasion of 2022, will certainly go down in the annals of American history as one of the most traumatic moments in the nation. When rich white liberals were confronted with the fact that they might have brown neighbors. It is, I know people were triggered. It was an incredibly traumatic moment for the people there in Martha's Vineyard with the 50 illegal aliens showed up looking for food and shelter. And by the way, to our knowledge, Barack Hussein Obama, who has that beautiful multi-million dollar ten bedroom mansion right there in Martha's Vineyard, did not offer a single brown person refuge in his mansion. Neither did Oprah. Now I don't know what to make of all of that, but that's just the reality of the situation. Regardless, the rich white liberals were so aggrieved that they summoned the military to come in and immediately repel the invading horde of illegals. And now they are residing at joint base Cape Cod. But the fallout from all of this continues.
Fresh update on "cape" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"This is WTO news. 9 23 here, so what's going on with tropical storm Ian at this hour joining us to talk about that national hurricane center meteorologist Michael ticket check, he joins us on Skype this morning and Michael, thanks for joining us. We know that Ian has been in Central Florida overnight. Where's that storm now and where is it headed? Thank you for calling us. Ian right now is really, really close to the cape canaveral area. It is moving closer and closer to the coastal waters area of the Florida coast to the Atlantic Ocean. It has continued its movement from the interior parts of Florida, northeastward, and that right now pretty soon during the next hour or two or so, it will be officially in the watery areas of the Atlantic Ocean. The forecast is for it to go now more toward the north and northwest. It will spend the next 24 hours or so. And arrive close to the coast of South Carolina. In about 24 hours by Friday, afternoon. One of the observations of the EN as it approached landfall on the West Coast of Florida was that it continued to strengthen right up through landfall. That's considered unusual I take it. No, no, it's possible. It
Martha's Vineyard Couldn't Last Beyond 44 Hours With Illegal Migrants
"44 hours. That's as long as the community of Martha's Vineyard would put up with having illegals in their area. Wow, I'll bet you the people of McAllen, Texas, would love to have a 44 hour limit on the arrival of illegals into their community. I'll bet you all the people that live in border towns in Arizona and Texas would be grateful for a 44 hour limit. You know what happened, right? With the 50 illegals that governor desantis flew to Martha's Vineyard, they put up with those 50 illegals for 44 hours before they kicked them out. Before they deported them, they shipped them out to a military facility at Cape Cod.

Professor Walter Hooper on C.S. Lewis' Take on Gender
"For Walter hooper. It's in all of his fiction. This idea of embodying nobility embodying vulgarity and baseness that these things are not what we say they are. They're innate qualities that God has created a universe with these inequalities. Of course, the idea of maleness and femaleness is being challenged today as though anyone can be anything as though there isn't even such a thing as maleness. But the way Lewis portrays kings and queens that they're very different in his world. Maybe you can talk a bit about gender or that kind of thing in his books because it seems to be so strong and it's maybe why some people don't want to read him these days. Well, they may not, but they're enough who do. But I think it was natural that he called the king of the beast. The king named the one who rules Narnia after the king of the beasts, Lion. You can't have a platypus, you know? But that's the funny thing is we know that. Most people would know that, but then you have to say, well, then, well, why? And it's just because it's something innate that we know. Platypus, that's very good. That's a great contrast. But he also was very, very fond of mice. He really loved the beautiful little quadruplet quadruplets. He said that in few may remember that scene in that idios strength where after he finished ransom had finished his tea, the crumbs fell on the floor, the cape crumbs, he blew a little whistle and these mice came soon. He said we want to get rid of the crumbs. The mice need food. Why not do that?
Fresh "Cape" from Morning Edition
"In Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly. Authorities in Southwest Florida now have daylight to carry out search and rescue efforts in the hours after hurricane Ian made landfall along the Gulf Coast. They report many 9-1-1 calls from people trapped in their homes by high water. Ian came ashore yesterday near Fort Myers as a category four hurricane, with winds of 150 mph, and a life threatening 12 foot storm surge. NPR's Greg Allen says Ian has since weakened to a tropical storm as it moves west to east towards the Atlantic. Meteorologists warn Ian's danger comes now not from wind, but from inland flooding caused by heavy rainfall. The storm is on track to move across northeast Florida, coastal Georgia and South Carolina. During the storm, residents and officials posted videos of a massive storm surge in beachfront communities in Naples and Fort Myers. In Southwest Florida, crews are going door to door to assess damage in neighborhoods, batteries for hours by storm surge in hurricane force winds. Among the areas they're checking or residential neighborhoods like Cape Coral in englewood. Another community hit hard by the storm was sanibel island. Photos posted by the tapa bay times show a section of the causeway to the island, washed away by the storm. Greg Allen and PR news, St. Petersburg.

Martha's Vineyard Deports the Illegals to Cape Cod
"In my fingers, grace baker just had to be the breaking news alert. It appears that Martha's Vineyard is now deporting the illegals. That's right, ladies and gentlemen, a breaking news from Martha's Vineyard. The illegal aliens, and by the way, if you listen to the mainstream media coverage, as I was doing, as I was driving back across the states of Alabama and Mississippi, if you believe the mainstream media coverage, I just thought there were idle hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens that have been dumped in Martha's Vineyard. Which, by the way, is not necessarily a bad thing, in my estimation. But it turned out to be only about 50 people that were that were sent there to Martha's Vineyard and the rich white liberals got triggered. Now, I want to try to approach this from the mindset of the rich white liberal who lives in Martha's Vineyard. Now these are the people that are out there telling all the rest of us that we are not diverse enough, we're not tolerant enough, we're not, we're not our skin shade is not dark enough. Trying to find a nice way to say it. That's why I was hemming and hawing. All the while, these people are lily white liberals. I mean, these people, the only blacks, the only people of color on Martha's Vineyard, besides Barack Hussein Obama and his wife, misses Michelle Obama. Would be the help.

"cape" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Word. It's depressing. And I'm still reeling from the hearing where we learned about the pressure on then vice president Mike Pence and how close he came to quite literally being assassinated. You and I could talk all day long. And we only have 5 minutes left, but I'm just going to give a warning. We're going to try to stretch this just a little bit longer because there are two things I need to ask you about. One is talk about being a woman in this business and the things you had to you had to put up with as you rose through the ranks. By dint of your determination and skill. I think any woman coming up in any business will recognize some version of this. And you know, it's nice to have it out there. You get treated differently. And you get treated in a non serious way. I hope it's changing. But when I was coming up in the business, I had a, you know, I had a meeting with my first news director, one of my first news directors. My first one where I was a reporter. And the meeting was we love you, but we think you're so great. We're happy to hire you, but you can't be on my station. Unless you change the way you look. You told me my boobs were too big for my clothes. And so many words. He handed me a quite literal binder full of women, Jonathan. That contained a bunch of glossy images of haircuts that he wanted me to get short severe bob cuts with streaky highlights. The kind of thing that you would see in front of a mole salon in 1989. And it was the message that was given to me was it very much matters. Very much matters the way you look. And then later on, when I was climbing the ladder, I was at a local station here in New York, and WPIX, and the assignment editor, you know, sent me on a story about pole dancing as exercise. And it was a kind of a fad at the time. But it didn't just send me to cover it. He said, hey, do you have any stripper shoes you can wear while you're doing this story? You can get on the pole and do some examples of the routine. And I remember thinking, you would never ask any of my male colleagues to do this. And it just exemplified that in order to be taken seriously, I had to suck it up and just smile and pretend like I wasn't hearing those things. And then try to move on to get the harder news, the more serious story. I had to fight for it. Prove myself in a way that some of my male colleagues did not have to. And it's frustrating. And I don't like it. I don't like that you automatically assume that the girl on the woman, the young woman on your staff, is the person that should go cover Gossip Girl.

Making Sense of the Cassidy Hutchinson Testimony
"She just said at the beginning of her testimony that they were in the beast. Last time I checked the beast is the limousine. And I think it's a 22 foot long vehicle. He just reached up in the front of the, listen, he sits in the back. Next to the window so everybody can see him. Same place that he, you know, he's a designated place he sit there. There's a designated place that he's sitting in Air Force One. There's a designated place where he sits in marine one. Having a president going to go from a back of a 22 foot vehicle, somehow fly through the air with a Superman cape on, and put his arm through, I'm assuming there's a partition there that they must have opened to let the president put his arm through. And the president is a big dude. He ain't reaching his arm all the way through a partition to the steering wheel.

Pastor Tom Ascol Offers Words of Comfort in This Brutal Time
"Curiosity over the last couple of years. About the baptist convention, the Southern Baptist convention and their leadership and their direction and how they're handling some of these issues of critical race theory and how it has been engaging with the church. And there is a movement to try to restore in my opinion theological and biblical sanity back to the convention. And one person in particular is a senior pastor from grace baptist church in cape corral, Florida beautiful cape corral, Florida, Tom askew, and he's with us right now. Tom, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. I just want to first start and just ask you as a pastor, just give our audience some words of comfort from the scriptures in this very unexpected and brutal time of national mourning as we look at what's happened and you've all day Texas. Yeah, well, this is thought to be a reminder to us that we live east of Eden. We live in a fallen world. It's precisely because of that. The gods on the lord Jesus into the world. And it is only through Christ, we can find reconciliation with God. We can find the comfort that we need. God is with those who are broken hearted, he deals gently with people who find themselves cast down. So my encouragement is to look to Christ to recognize, again, why we need to save and how good God has been to us to give up his own son to save us from our sin. And we need to get that message of Salvation as widely distributed as we can because this type of evil continues in our world.

"cape" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Devices that I did not use them in the book. So that was interesting to see how that all worked. And I think as a creative advice it did work. The thing about the opera, though, I think Terrence or someone told me this, Harris, did you tell me this about how much longer it takes to sing a word than to say it? Yeah. Opera is incredibly short. Relative to what the thing the whole book you'd be there all night, right? So you had to make artistic choices about what is included, what is not included. Also, it is a stage production. So you can't constantly change the scene as you might do. In a book, you can do it as often it's like, in movie format, you can do it a bit more on a stage, there's only so many times you can wield that scene off and bring another one on. So you are also an entrapped by how many scenes you can present. And so they had to make all those choices. And so I was very interested, particularly the first time to see which choices they made about which things the two exclude and to maintain story and to develop characters and the arc of the narrative. And I think it works as its own piece of art. I do believe that it does because opera also has to be dramatic. There are a lot of subtle moments that were important to me that just didn't make it, right? So that's just part of translation. So I try not to gauge it against the book, but to accept that it is a different new piece of art created by tariffs and cassian James and that I appreciate it for that. So let's talk about the nitty Gritty here because fire shut up in my bones is your second opera. Your first was champion in 2013, which was directed by my old friend James Robinson. You mentioned Jim earlier. That's what you were talking about. And James is the co director with Camille Brown of fire. But opera is not your first medium for musical composition. You are best known as a multiple Grammy winning jazz trumpeter and band leader and I'll add great musician great jazz musicians and musician anyone who has watched a Spike Lee movie over the last 30 years has heard and been moved by your stirring majestic scores. So, given that you're part of the jazz firmament, what inspired opera as the format for this specific story. Well, you know, one of the things a lot of people who know me, they know that my father was an amateur baritone. He loved opera. So I heard opera a lot growing up in the house. And one of the things that has always been curious to me, you know, about, especially in African American community is how there's so many people in our community who love the music and love opera, but there's not many formats or pieces actually created for them. I mean, we could talk about poor games. But still created for them by African Americans. I mean, you know, at least let me put it this way. They have pieces out there. The pieces that are gaining traction, you know, and to have the opportunity to do something at the Met. You know, on this scale, was a very intriguing thing for me. Now, obviously, we started in St. Louis. And one of the things that I really started to realize immediately was that African American opera singers don't get a chance to really fully bring to the table. Everything that they grow up with. Most of them grew up singing in the church or singing rhythm blues or jazz. And when it comes time to sync tosca, you know, a lot of them are turned off. They're told to turn those things off. You know, and for me, that's a big part of who they are. And one of the things that I love in being in this world is that I get a chance to create some pieces that allow them to bring all of who they are to the frame. I mean, when you listen to angel blue when she sings peculiar grace, she mixes her operatic voice, you know, with this gospel spiritual color that's very moving and very hearty. You know, and I think when you put that together with great acting great scenery, the entire art form is a very powerful way to tell stories. You know, I've been telling people to stop thinking opera. This is the highest form of musical theater that you can ever experience. And I truly believe that. And with the performances of fire, I think, you know, people were extremely moved by the entire production by seeing it all come together, you know? And there's nothing like that that I've ever experienced. Camille Brown, who's also the operas choreographer, she said in an interview that what comes with you being the first black composer on the Met stage is, quote, the black lens and along with that comes black culture spoken through or danced through the black lens. I mean, you talked about that just a moment ago. But Charles, I would love to get your perspective on that. How important is it that what Terrence was just talking about? One, allowing black opera performers to bring all of themselves to a role. But also to have a story such as yours, told through the lens of a black composer and told through the performances of black opera singers. Well, I've said this before. I was very happy that this opera bought brought opera to the black experience not black experience into the opera meaning it needed to come to any of the come to us understand that you can have a beautiful production, but also an amazing story that just is about us. It doesn't depend on it is not reactionary to other people, is not a response. It is an expression of the human condition as expressed by human beings. These humans happen to be black. And that was important to me because there are almost no white characters in my book because it's not about characters because these are just people in my life and I grew up in an all black town. Around, it went to all black schools. I was around black people. And that wasn't a choice to exclude anybody else. It was just the circumstance under which I grew up. And so to be true to that, that means that you do bring black culture in abundance. To this production. And can I add to that? Something real quick. It's really beautiful to hear Charles say that because one of the things that we kept thinking, we didn't know it was an all black cast. We didn't realize it was an all black cast. We were just doing an opera. We were doing Charles story. And again, it was somebody else that came up to us and said, well, man, this is all black cast. And we were like, oh, I guess it is. You know, so to his point, we want to try to exclude anybody. We weren't trying to necessarily statement on that front. We were just trying to tell his story the best way because. You know, one thing that came up in my research and all this, when was performed in St. Louis. It was I believe it was the dancers where it was a coed group of dancers, but fire on the Met stage was all men. What was the thinking behind that? Particularly on the fraternity, the step scene. Well, I think that was a choice that was made by commune and Jim, you know, the story was definitely about Charles. And Charles, you know, struggling with his own sexuality. And when you look at the ballet that opens up the second act of the opera, I think Camille did an amazing job of creating something that told his story. You know, so it was a choice. It was a creative choice to kind of help push along the narrative of what was going on in Charles's life at that time. You know, and then I think it makes it even more powerful a moment when he meets Greta in the opera. And then he starts to date her and then he saw she revealed to her, everything that happened to him. You know, but it was a beautiful choice because when you see the step shell, you know, when you see the ballet, those dancers did an amazing job. As a matter of fact, you know, I was kidding, you know, I said, man, I've never seen nobody get it stand innovation just for walking on the stage. You know, you know? At first time I've ever seen that. I wouldn't talk about one of the Arias. Ben don't break. And the powerful lyrics go, I sway, I sway my roots run deep. I draw my strength from underneath. I bend, I don't break, I sway. And to hear to hear, will liverman deliver those words is so powerful. But what just sort of not to be back and moves me to no end was when the eye becomes we. Towards the end of the aria. And I can't even begin to describe how much it moved me. What have you heard from others about that aria? Well, for me, you know, that's one of the pivotal moments that in peculiar grace, you know, when you say we've been we don't break, it seems to be the rallying cry for a lot of people, a lot of disenfranchised people. A lot of people who have suffered through the development of this country, you know, I look at everything that I grew up witnessed growing up in just trying to maintain daily life, you know, in my family. And the struggles that my parents went through to keep us afloat. And then keep me in music lessons and keep me pushing forward. And allowing me to have a dream, you know, there were moments, you know, that were very stressful for all of us. And I think everybody can really relate to that. It's one of the things that I kept hearing from a lot of people who came to the opera that thing was something that they started to chant, you know, outside of the performances. You know, it's one of the things I think that even some of the dances they would talk about before the show would start, you know? We don't break, you know. And it became a rallying cry for a lot of students that also have seen the broadcast of the Apple. You know, Charles, that phrase, we been, we don't break. We sway. It would be like a nice mantra for what you bring to your columns at the times. It's a perfect encapsulation, at least to my mind. Go ahead, Charles. This is one of those is where, you know, when you do something artistically, you come to it once it's ability. But the people who appreciate it, see something bigger than what you were intending. I first heard people talk about it as a metaphor for black struggle in America only in reviews of this opera, not even in the book. And that was not, and I could understand that. But it was not. It was not the intention. That idea came from, for me, a communion with nature. And that I spent many days. Meditating in a forested area that where the trees to me look like a cathedral. And so it became for me a metaphor for a religious space. And in that space, the way I described it, the trees spoke to me. And taught me things. About resilience and weathering the storms. And bending but not breaking about being deeply rooted. And that I had carried that lesson from nature from those trees out into my life and that I thought about them all the time in that way that if they can weather that hurricane, I can. And so it was very specific to me, I wasn't trying to make a statement about blackness in America, but then when other people made that connection, I thought, oh, you could say that, too, you know? But it's very interesting to me how art can speak to other people in other ways. You know, and that's what it's funny. I forgot to mention because it's plainly obvious that the reason why those lyrics hit me so hard in a beautiful way is that as a black man listening to the words seeing it seeing them perform just spoke to something that was just larger than the intention of those words in the 5 minutes that we have left real quick and go to an audience question for Terrence. Terrence, this comes from Scott in Iceland. Did the existence of large scale jazz works by Coltrane or Ellington have an effect on the composition where the things you were there things you avoided or things you referenced while I never really tried to reference anything directly because you know I'm always trying to find my own voice. But I'm always influenced by anything great. You know, and of course anything Duke Ellington has done a John Coltrane, those happened to be two of my favorite artists has had an effect on me. You know, but, you know, I studied with a guy named roger Dickerson who studied in Austria and came back to New Orleans and to teach. And he taught me composition from the time that I was 16 years old and he's the guy that whenever I have a major project or something to do. I still call him to this day. You know, and when I called him to do my first opera champion, I remember he told me he said, stop thinking about, you know, writing an opera. He said tell a story. Tell a story. And that's what I've tried to do. The difference is, is that I've tried to bring all of my background to bear. That's why we call it an opera in jazz and not a jazz opera. We don't want people to think that you're going to hit the bass band or the Ellington band when you come to the performance. But the DNA from all of those languages and both cultures will exist because I'm also a big fan of puccini as well. You know, label women is one of my favorite operas of all time. Like it is for most. So I'm trying to use everything at my disposal to tell this story in the most succinct way I can and also the most interesting and interestingly artistic way that I can. Well, I'm sorry, Terence. My favorite opera is tosca. And lions whose price will always be tosca to me. All right, in two minutes in the two minutes that we have left, I have a question for each of you and Terrence. I'll have you go first. What do you want people to take away from the work you've done in fire shut up in my bones? I want people to learn that no matter what it is you go through. You know, the old saying it's God never gives you anything you can't handle. You know, you have the strength to forge ahead and persevere. You know, this in Charles life, his life, his existence, is an example of that. And Charles, what do you want people to take away from your story? Well, first, you know, Terrence has got to have sometimes you're like, sir, ma'am, who told you that? I've been so beautiful. But I think that they take away for me is the realization that there are no small lives that every life is grand. And so it was the biggest thing about this being on the Met's phase to me was to hear references to my hometown. What did my church or whatever? Because I was back in my hometown for of 900 people for Thanksgiving and that and they just freak out because they were like, who would have thought that this town would be mentioned in anything? Because we thought ourselves living in a tiny space that that time and the world was passing over, but there are no spaces like that. Every life is an opportunity every life is a story every life is grand. Charles blow. Terrence Blanchard. Thank you so much for coming to Kay part. It truly has been an honor. Oh, thank.

Dr abram mix kennedy has said something that i had not really thought much about he basically has posited the theory that we've always moved side-by-side good with evil and one overtakes the other from time to time and both are always present. And then mitch goes on to say. And i don't know whether i don't know that he's more right than wrong. But it sure feels like right. Now the forces of what. I would describe as white nationalism white supremacy this notion that somehow whiteness is essential to the future of america for some people who consider themselves to be. Patriots is a very dangerous idea. And this this idea of good and simultaneously basically coexisting in one overtaking.

I have written about the sort of racial history of this country a history of of of racial progress in an even a history of racists progress. I don't i wouldn't necessarily call it the clash between good and evil because i think it's it's important trustee too complicated even further in that you know you you have people who express sort of or maybe a part of both off forces at different times or or you have people have good intentions but you know it.

But it's just so awful to think that they would sell their own children to sell their own grandchildren. Oh god can you imagine that. We can't imagine what that's like. And we have given this idea of slavery a pass from our moral consciousness and where it should be in our frontal lobe. It should be right there in front of us and one of the things we do to not talk about slavery or talk about the war that was fought to end.

And then that excitement begins to get tamp down. i hope that with the conversations the president And the vice president of the having even a debates around sixteen nineteen will keep these issues at the forefront and will continue to get people to be engaged so that they see this for me as their story not somebody else's story. Now you say. Evan flow in. That reminds me of something that i always have to keep. Remind myself in that is history is not linear she not at all and when it's funny when i we created the african american museum. If you when you go in you got to walk up ramps. The goal was the rams would go forward and back forward and back to say. History is not linear That there are going to be moments of great boost forward. And then there's going to be a backlash or there's going to be steps back and so i think for me that notion of the fact that it's not a linear marched progress but that what it is is it is a long term struggle that is going to have moments of victory moments of resiliency and moments of defeat and pain a that's the way change occurs in this country. What makes you proudest of the african american story. I always have a picture in my office. That i've had for twenty years and it's a woman who was just free formerly enslaved woman. Who's very short. She's carrying a ho. That has taller than she is. She's got a heavy basket Her dresses tattered. Her knuckles are swollen from work but her head is up and she stepping forward to me. That's what i'm proudest. That here is a community that believed in america didn't believe in them. Here's a community that said we are going to help a country define what citizenship is with. Freedom is what quality is not just for black people but for all people so in a way. I'm proudest of that. Strength of this community and their commitment to sort of being the beacon of possibility when it comes to helping america live up to its stated ideals.

All right well. Let's let's have that that meeting conversation. This book was fun. Your book was fun in it. It went in in ways that i did not expect. It is memoir. It is at its advice for for young people. It's a it's a blueprint and we're gonna get into that in a moment. But i just have to jump in right away right now. You are senior adviser to the democratic presidential nominee. Joe biden last election cycle. You're the national press secretary for senator bernie sanders in two thousand sixteen for all for myself and everyone who's watching. How did that happen. And i want to start with bernie sanders.

The question you started with because i know this is the question everybody really wants to answer. How did this happen. Why will tell you that.

I would make the decision to go back and do it all over again in two thousand fifteen i would. If i go back into time i would go back and still make the same decision. I'm proud of the work. We did when i made the decision that i wanted to go back out on the campaign trail this cycle because i you know i was enjoying my time as a political commentator. I used to go to branch. I used to go on vacation now. None of those things are happening. Some of that is due to cope. Nineteen and the current president of the united states. Mismanagement of that situation which i'm sure we will have opportunity to touch on later. I'll but some of it is because on the campaign trail. There is no brunch okay. There are no vacations. There is a work for a finite amount of time and the clock is ticking as we are having this conversation we are yet a couple couple of weeks a number of weeks just a couple of minutes away from election day and when i made the conversation the decision to go back on the campaign trail i really i talked to lots of different folks as you all may remember their upwards of more than twenty people running to be the democratic nominee. And when i had the to sit down with vice president biden and his wife dr jill biden joe biden. Said to me something. Y'all have heard him say a number of different times. He told me he was running for president because he thought that what he was saying from trump wasn't abuse of power and he could not sit back and watch an abuse of power go unchecked that he didn't want to look back on this election cycle unthank- what if i would have ran for president and that was similar to something i had experienced. I didn't wanna look back on this cycle and thing. What if. I didn't jump in and i told him i said me too sir and i'm live but i want to work for somebody. I don't wanna be the president.

"Raphael warnock. Welcome to the podcast. Great to be here with jonathan. We're talking because you're senate race where how many people you were running against their georgia in your race. I don't know if i could even kill the there. Were twenty one people in my race and the names were listed alphabetically. My last name is war. Knock okay and so as was the case. When i was in elementary school when the teacher said it's time to go to lunch or recess. I was the kid next to the last kid in line and so it was in this in this race. But i finish. I that's significant. I didn't know that the names were listed in alphabetical order. And your last name begins with a w. the person got the second most votes her name starts with an l. You got thirty two point nine at least as of right now. Last i looked thirty. Two point nine percent of the vote was it a million six votes already. And she's the incumbent who spent millions of dollars in this race that's right and you got almost a million more votes than the person who came in third which is the congressman who is trying to knock out the incumbent. So let's start at the beginning. Why did you think that now is the time to run for office and run for. Us senate well. My whole life has been about service. I'm pastor serve ovens a baptist church. But i've been engaged. These fights from that pulpit for years. I've been fighting for healthcare access and affordability for years standing up in acts of civil disobedience demanding that we expand medicaid in the state. I've been fighting for voting rights. I've worked alongside my friend stacy abrams. We registered through the new georgia project. Which i chaired. One hundred thousand new voters in the state. I've been standing up for the dignity of workers and they are ready to share in some of the prosperity that they've created and i think my passion for these issues emerges from my life story of someone who grew up in public housing down in savannah georgia one of twelve children number eleven and the first college graduate my family so my success as a result of hard work but also pell grants low interest student loans. Good public policy. I know the difference that good public policy makes. And that's why i'm running for the us senate and so in your campaign running around the state. That hasn't voted for a democrat for president since ninety. Two and president-elect joe biden is on the cuss of perhaps winning the state of georgia. Talk about one why prison-like biden's message seemed to resonate in georgia and what impact that has had on your race and also talk about what you've heard on the campaign trail because i you went all around. The state didn't just stay in atlanta campaigning. Nola point i've been moving all across the state. And you know that that's important jobs and because there is this narrative in georgia politics there's atlanta and then the rest of the state and so i'm from savannah southeast part of the state but i've been on a bus moving across the state up dropped by small towns like america's george cuthbert georgia and down randolph county and. The people are surprised. When i show up and i'm surprised that they're surprised but they say to me that they have not seen a candidate show up in their town which is interesting to me because i'm running to represent the whole state rural and urban the north and the south and i'm getting to see first hand that people are having and what do people concerned about. They're concerned about health care. They're concerned about the fact that they wanna make sure that they don't lose the coverage that they have that coverage is affordable. We've had eight hospitals to close in this state largely because we refuse to expand. Medicaid is the unnecessary war that the republican party has waged against president obama who no longer in office and the people are the casualties in that war. Their hospitals are closing in these rural areas devastated rural health care and also taking away jobs and so i think the people voted the other night when they voted for joan by and when david purdue failed to get a majority of his voters even though he's the incumbent and i finished ahead of kelly leffler even though she's the incumbent that people are voting for unity over division and chaos there voting for healthcare. They're voting for a livable wage and the ability to retire with dignity. They're voting for the best in the human condition and the american spirit when

So I think I've always had fairly strong idea of what I want to do. . It was more the difficulty around people keep me in that box even though I'm expressing myself. . So that's why I went through the phases of hiding at. . It's it's been a journey but I'm grateful for the experience of sort of like having to navigate that <unk> given so many opportunities as well not because of my name but just simply because I am very, , very privileged upbringing and I'm extremely lucky and I'm so grateful for that

"MJ Hagar Welcome. . Hi. . Jonathan. . Thanks for having me on. . So okay. . I I had a set first question, , but I'm going to ask my own separate question and that is we started out the clip intro this moment. . With your doors add. . You ran when you ran the last time to me was one of the most powerful political ads had seen perhaps ever was it important for you to tell your story in that way? ? You know I think part of why it was. . So powerful was the moment that it played in. . In that moment people were. . Being exposed to the horrors of family separation, , for example. . And the fact that it resonated so much with people almost. . Sad. . I want it to be successful, , but it was also kind of disheartening to hear so many people reach out to the campaign and say, , yes, , that was me I had doors closed in my face to I've been trying to advocate for. . Disability rights because my child has down syndrome or whatever it was that they were trying to be heard by other elected officials and they completely You know empathize with that that experience of going to DC and having your elected officials closed door in your face and treat you like if you're not a big donor or you don't have any political capital to barter with and you don't matter. . And so it was kind of a bittersweet thing. . It was great that it got the campaign so much attention but it broke my heart a little that people were. . So gut punched over family separation and and so used to their government just not working for them that the message really resonated with people. . And so you you lost that. . That that ad was made for and now you're running for for US Senate most polls I've seen have you around by points within five points of Senator Cornyn the Cook Political Report classifies your race as likely are which I expected to be solid are given whose Senator Cornyn is from your perspective how is the race looking? ? Well you know I mean if you I love you know just talking about like the INS and outs of the data although I do think the data shows. . That, we , have a much better shot than Beto did against Ted Cruz a lot of people think that beddoe crews race that if anybody you know. . If we couldn't beat Ted Cruz and we can't beat anybody in Texas. . It's actually not true independent voters really like Ted Cruz Ted Cruz had a fifty two percent approval rating when he wants went up against Beto. . and. . Better almost beaten and John Cornyn has an approval rating of anywhere from twenty eight to thirty two and the vote exactly the same way, , and so you have to try to figure out what the differences between the white has one why once a while popular in Texas and one's not And, , the reason that <hes> that John Cornyn is not so popular is because he there's not an independent bone in his body. . He just does he's told he does as he's told by his corporate special interests he does he's told by his party leaders and. . You know that's very Texan. . It's very Texan to have backbone and grit and integrity and stand up for your principles and so <hes>. . You know I don't really look at polling that much. . Even fivethirtyeight recently said that <hes> Democrats in Texas are always going out will recently at least maybe not always are outperforming the polling in part because you poll people with a reliable voting history and we've been forty nine hundred fiftieth in voter turnout for decades. . So who's reliable voter anymore when when you have double or triple the turnout at the polls, , a lot of the people showing up to vote which by the way the people who are getting. . Engaged to go and vote who haven't been reliable voters tend to be not good news for whatever political party is in power right? ? So we expect to outperform the Coles the polling we're we're a lot closer than Beto was in the polling against Ted Cruz and yet he's still almost beat him. . So I, , have every confidence that. . After the debate we only have one scheduled that Cornyn. . has agreed to he has kind of chickened out on the other to even though he told the Texas Tribune that he would be. . Willing to do more. . I think that he knows that he can't run on his record I. . think he knows that the more Texans learn about him the worse it is for him we pick up a lot more of those independent undecided voters because my vision for this state is a lot more in line with Texas values in. . Want. .

"Jonathan, Kaye part, and this is Cape Up. My guest has been her states. Secretary of Health sees represented her State in Congress today. She is said to be on Joe. Biden's vice presidential shortlist in chose it. She would be the first lat next American on a presidential ticket. She is New Mexico Governor Michelle Luhan Grisham. Hear what she has to say about that and her states response to Corona virus in this special case up live episode right now. Governor Welcome! You know I'm delighted to be on your show. Nice to meet you spend a little time with you Jonathan. Likewise. Thank you very much for being here now. I mentioned that you were the health secretary. You are a member of Congress because they gave you incredible insight, I think and how to deal with the corona virus early on you declared a statewide health emergency on March eleventh when there were only four cases in your state. What did you see that pushed? The pushed you to move so quickly. Well two things that you know that this virus is moving, and so it comes with travelers we've got commuters were movie Hijab I was still dealing with folks who were trapped on a cruise and California and I've dealt with the pandemic before and the. You Start and the more aggressively you start, the better control and management efforts you have in. This is the problem because you can't see the pandemic everyone I think falsely assumes it won't come here. The it'll be easy, and we'll wait until we see what's happening because I think for too many leaders. It's easier to explain you have to move immediately. Otherwise it rages out of control and we're seeing that all across the country now. What we follow up, you said you've been through a pandemic before. which are you talking Ebola or something else? Blue so we had two issues. We had a flu epidemic I said pandemic epidemic in two, thousand, seven, two, thousand eight, and then in two, thousand and five. We had a flu vaccine shortage so when you are in a state where you've got higher. Per Capita. Issues related to chronic issues for children and adults, and that you have a higher death rate then from influenza we'd have a third of the capacity of healthcare providers and hospitalizations I literally had to join with illiinois to. Import flu vaccine from Canada Rich. You really couldn't do then and we found A. Soft, can I say loophole and brought it in and I protected Mexica residents then <hes> we took. Out of flu vaccine, so I took all the mercury out of it to further protect new Mexicans. I wouldn't buy anything that had. Mirasol in it, and then when the epidemic was coming in the same thing, he didn't have sufficient investments in public health, so getting to people getting them vaccinated partnering with limited. A. Private Provider Group was really challenging so <hes> probably answering this too long Jonathan but in December I knew this was coming. I asked my teams to start planning in early January, so we began to have round tables and start looking about where we was secure. And testing supplies. That's really interesting. You started focusing this on in December. And then moving with your staff in January, so you anticipated what could happen, but didn't you anticipate the inaction from the federal government in terms of having a national strategy? No in my wildest dreams I would not be spending my known specific time finding supplies testing supplies, and the right manufacturers, trying to figure out which instruments right the FDA was going to authorize in an emergency use environment, then test for the for the virus, so not every instrument was available. Not every then re agent is available every testing because they're not all. They weren't at the time universal, getting swabs and then chasing. And, then, in my wildest dreams I wouldn't be dealing with the federal government who would literally then take the things that you secured and redistributes them for the country while you want it to be a country focus. Because it wasn't it meant that you were fighting? Frankly with other governors and FEMA to get the adequate supplies into your state, and now we're seeing it occur again because there was without any federal strategies, still now that you have these outbreaks, governors are in the same situation chasing down supplies and P P and trying to adequately cover their first responders is the most outrageous environment I've ever worked on worked in in my entire career.

"I'm Jonathan. Kaye part, and this is Cape up in former President Barack. Obama's first term Susan Rice was the US ambassador to the United Nations. In the second term, she was Obama's National Security Advisor. Today Susan Rice as a private citizen author of tough love, my story of the things worth fighting for and under serious consideration to be Joe. Biden presidential, running name. Here what she has to say about that President Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, and whether the president is a national security threat to the United States in the Special Cape Up Life episode right now. Welcome back for the third time to the Cape Up podcast embassador Susan Rice welcome. Thanks so much great to be with you. So leery about one minute before we came on air here, there was breaking news that trump administration drops plan to deport international students in online classes, and your reaction was to applaud explained chance. Well, it was such a misguided. Stupid. Decision that they took in the first place. International students are critical part of our university structure. Our college campuses they bring talent. They bring diversity. They bring resources and to lock them out, simply because their campuses have decided by virtue of the pandemic they need to. Conduct classes, online in the fall was just calloused an. Extraordinarily counterproductive I haven't had a chance to read in detail the reporting on it, but it looks like. The trump administration saw their effort to defend this policy in court was unlikely to succeed and they backed down. And it seems to be a victory for our colleges and universities are students across this country and across the world, because so much of our appeal, our competitiveness, our soft power depends on people around the world, wanting to come here and learn and study bring their skills and talents. So this is a good day. Ambassador. Let's keep talking about foreign policy. Originally, I was going to start this interview talking about the election in Poland and the news of the reelection of Poland's president. Duda and he's an ally of president. Trump's and a supporter of the right wing Law and Justice Party he's been condemned by the e, U and democratic watchdogs, and just wondering how if you think president trump's behavior in the farm policies space his support for leaders like Duda, as contributed to the rise of illiberal nationalist in autocratic regimes around the world. Well certainly legitimize the rise of elected autocrats, and we see that <hes> increasingly. Parts of the World Poland is the most recent example it's unfortunate because Poland is an important part of NATO an important part of the EU, but it is moving in a direction where it's values, and its approach are completely out of step with the other members of the alliance and it it suggested. Particularly, when it comes to the EU. Their position could be in jeopardy down the road if if there is a further move towards anti democratic policies and structures. Ambassador is it possible for the alliance to even survive if the super in the alliance, the United States doesn't even bother to champion those small D, democratic ideals that have been the cement for Alliance for more than seven decades. All the NATO alliance is under duress. Because of president trump's callous disregard for the purposes and <hes> the interest of this alliance, our alliance with NATO is built on common values, but it's also built on interest that we stand together as North American allies <hes> North Atlantic allies. And Atlantic. And Europe broadly to counter threats to our sovereignty and territorial integrity is in alliance at which come chiefly from Russian. And <hes> when the United States, Questions the value of our lines turns it into a transactional arrangement <hes> when president trump decides to unilaterally withdraw third of our horses from Germany without even consulting with the German government and calls our adversaries from Russia to China to North Korea while putting our allies in a very difficult position, it does great damage to the alliance in that's one of the many reasons why we need change I don't think NATO, <hes> and our leadership role in the world can withstand for more years of Donald Trump. And, that's why we need change, and we need leadership in the form of Joe Biden who comes out of the bipartisan American tradition of supporting our alliances of understanding who our friends are, and who are adversaries are, and that our leadership and our strength in the world is enhanced when we can bring partners and allies with us.

"I'm Jonathan Kaye part in this is Cape. Robin Diangelo is the author of white fragility by it so hard for white people to talk about racism. It's one of the most important books on race and racism that I've read because it's written by a white woman for white people. And she doesn't mince words I actually don't think that most white people care about racial injustice. The Angelo and I discuss how amy Cooper's nine. One one call and central park was terrifying addition to a history of white women's tears, being weaponized against black men, we discussed the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and we talk about the broader concept of white fragility. And how if you're white? You can liberate yourself from it. As you will hear. This was a Cathartic conversation for me. You can listen to it right now. Robert de Ngelo. Thank you very much for coming on the PODCAST. Thanks for having me I've been raving about your book white fragility. Why so hard for white people talk about racism? Since I read last year in one of the chapters in your book is entitled White Women's Tears and I immediately thought of it in in reaction to what happened central park between Amy Cooper, and Christian couvert not no relation and you have A. reprise Vignette. in that chapter where someone says to you when a white woman cries, a black man gets hurt, and you go on to write, not knowing or being sensitive to this history is another example of white centrality, individualism and lack of racial humility. In that that vignette jumped out at me after watching the Amy Cooper video. Because at least to me, it was clear Amy Cooper knew what she was doing. Those quote, unquote tears, and that quote unquote emotion were not real. From your perspective and as author of this book, tell me what you what you thought of what you saw in that video, and how that plays into the overall research in your book. Yeah, and you also noticed that the more it becomes clear that they're not working the more unraveled she becomes right there something. There's response that she expects to get that. She's not getting. So there's so much going on in that that scene. If you will, there's the sense of this is my space. This is our space and you don't belong in this space. And I am entitled to engage in this faith in any way that I want. I need to follow the rules right so in putting them back onto him. She actually makes herself the victim and hurt him the perpetrator. He's not following a an unspoken set of rules, which is not only not being in her space, but backing down a when she basically demands him to back down. When she she uses his race. Over and over, so it's very clear. She's not just calling the police and describing him even before she calls, she makes it known in. This is another great example of the lie of color blindness that we don't notice people's race. That has no meaning so she's leveraging all of this, and he just remains calm, dignified and she again. And more irrational, and I think in enlarge white fragility is irrationality, but it doesn't have to be rational. We don't have to be rational. It just has to work, so we can on in one one moment invoke individualism. Why can't we all be seen as unique and different and the next moment? Oh, we all bleed under the skin. Why can't we all seen as the same? They're contradictory narratives, but that's not the point the point is we need to silence of racism. We need to silence any calling in of our positions of our entitlement. At in there, there's a there's so much history behind this. This is this is another piece. White women's tears invoke a history of terror. I mean Emmett till. Is probably the most amplified example of what happens when a white woman claims distress. In that case he you know. He looked at me. He whistled at me and in the Emmett till example, we also know that that wasn't true. This a so much of this is based on lies, but up until recently it's certainly been effective.
