"Asks me what is news and talk good afternoon it is three o'clock I'm Chris channel why the W. S. B. twenty four hour news center and Justin we wanna hear from our state capitol reporter Sandra Parrish we just off the phone with one of our top state lawmakers with some info about how they're going to proceed and some info that to state employees around Georgia gonna wanna hear sandy that's right Chris speaker David Ralston telling me that he has presented at date to lieutenant governor Jeff Duncan and governor Brian Kemp to resume the session proposed June eleventh as a start date to route to resume the session and complete it and that that date is based on one over riding concern and ideas that we have the very best and most current data that we can hang out for the budget still he says it will likely be the only thing lawmakers will focus on as the budget has to be passed by June thirtieth their constitutionally required to have that budget passed to begin July first likely no pay raises though for teachers or income tax cuts for Georgians or any other tax or pay raises are tax cuts at this point we are still waiting on reaction from the lieutenant governor's office will check in with the governor's office as well reporting live cedar parish ninety five point five WSP insanity say anything out right about possible cuts are for Los he says he is hoping not to have any furloughs at this point of course the governor the governor has already dipped into the state's rainy day fund he's hoping that that will not have to happen again but I guess it all just remains to be seen at all three sites have got to come together the house has passed a budget looks very different you know then when they suspended the session a little more than a month ago they had passed that sent it to the Senate so the Senate now has it they M. I know have been working on changes during this time so they will all come back together they will have to agree on it and that it will go to the governor who obviously would have to sign it but it all has to be done by June thirtieth in order to take effect.

"His presidential campaign you know that we will talk about that in a separate segment next hour but president trump is already angling to suppress the vote for when he and presumably Joe Biden face off in November the president claims widespread voting by mail is a risk for voter fraud and he seemed to admit his real motivation when he tweeted yesterday that mail in voting quote for whatever reason doesn't work out well for Republicans in the country today has a detailed article about the lack of fraud in states that already use mail in ballots all read a little bit of that New York times article in this segment with me now on that and more is USA today Washington bureau chief Susan page thanks so much for continuing to come on with us under all this pressure welcome back to W. NYC Susan Brian it's my honor to be here with you why did this come up the president and his last few daily briefings in on Twitter they're attacking mail in voting well the Republicans are focused on what's going to happen in November when the president will be out for a second term and of course there's going to be there's going to be a different kind of election day given what will be a continued situation with the coronavirus however whatever course it takes over the next few months Democrats are very interested in expanding the ways people can go to specially mail in ballots which is something to work with some success in states and as a way that eliminates the health challenges of having elections at the time of pandemic fought and Republicans are aggressively opposing efforts in states across the country to do that another piece of evidence of what this is really about in addition to trump kind of revealing his hand by tweeting for whatever reason this doesn't work out well for Republicans another piece of evidence comes from Georgia the times reports that in Georgia where the secretary of state is mailing all voters absentee ballot requests for the may primary so they're actually doing it the state house speaker David Ralston a Republican told the local news site this will be extremely devastating to Republicans and conservatives in Georgia this will drive up turnout that's a remarkable quote to me because he's admitting he's against turnout and he seems to admit that the more fully Americans vote the more fully those votes get counted the worst that happens to be for his party now in normal times that would be huge admission of motivation and intention to suppress the vote politically I don't know what it is in these times well there's a there's a lot of news to deal with that you know the president himself made a similar comment a couple weeks ago he said that if they followed the plans by Democrats to expand early voting which is another way to try to deal with the pandemic and voting by mail he said quote you'd never have a Republican elected in this country again and you saw this in action this week with that bizarre primary in Wisconsin the bizarre election in Wisconsin R. which was went ahead despite efforts are by the democratic governor to postpone it or to take other other steps and that was that was all about reducing turnout in places like Milwaukee were there a lot of democratic voters are in order to have an effect on a key election there for the state Supreme Court we don't know how the Wisconsin primary did not know how the Wisconsin voters turned out yet because of delays in an account with absentee votes but there was but there is definitely a concerted political effort on the part of the GOP to try to manage efforts to expand turnout in new and different ways in November do they have any argument to make that somehow mail in voting and early voting bias a vote against Republicans in other words in a way that create that would create an inaccurate vote of the people as opposed to simply expanding turned out and therefore more Americans are participating and if what that shows is that most of the Americans who weren't participating were for Democrats then that's where the chips fall so the president said that it's open internet fraud and that you'd have people in room citing a mail ballot after mail ballot there's no credible study that shows a problem with fraud with nobody nobody could be quite secure it is reminiscent of the arguments that the president has made since twenty third twenty sixteen election where he has said that there was massive voter fraud voting by undocumented residents of the United States who were eligible to vote the credible studies that show that that didn't happen either but those are the assertions that he has made in both these cases the New York times article I've been citing from this headline trump is pushing a false argument on vote by mail fraud here are the facts and I'm just gonna read one fact and description of that fact from that article it says states that voted tightly by mail C. little fraud five states including the Republican bastion of Utah now conduct all elections almost entirely by mail the report very little fraud the state is among the six states with the highest percentage of mail in votes in the last election in twenty eighteen that Utah all of which had Republican state election supervisors at the time those six states according to David Becker the director of the center for election innovation and reform in other words six states with Republican state election supervisors that use mail in ballots in a widespread way they all report little to no voter fraud so just saying do you know if what's left of the voting rights act would have anything to say about this as a reason for fighting against mail in voting under the social distancing circumstances another words that it would be some kind of illegal voter suppression attempt especially as they admit their motivations like in the case of trump and that Republican house speaker in Georgia you're you're good at you can certainly I turned to the courts to appeal what Republican legislatures are doing that has not worked very well in the recent past we had just this week that top court in Wisconsin and the U. S. Supreme Court declined to view the corona virus endemic as a as a reason to agree to changes in voting to agree to extending mail in balloting for instance are in those unfortunately I'm sad to say those decisions were both issued along party lines so it's the I'm sure that people can turn to the courts at the moment it's not clear whether they'd get relief by doing that and listeners we can take phone calls and tweets for Susan page USA today Washington bureau chief we're gonna talk about things other than the president versus mail in voting but it can be on that or it can be on any covert related or even non covert related you know one of the things that we've been talking about in our team meetings listeners I'll take you behind the scenes is how much in the coming days to fold in non coated related stories because certainly at the federal level there are other things going on sometimes things that people are trying to sneak in under the radar when everybody is so focused on code nineteen so we will be turning to some of those things and defined way in subsequent shows we certainly can bring some of those things up as they pertain to the federal government was Susan page today if you want to call on anything like that Washington bureau chief for USA today Susan page is two one two four three three W. NYC two one two four three three nine six nine two or tweet your question or comment Brian Miller before we leave early voting we should say that mail in voting we should say I think it's not actually up to trump or the federal government because each state makes its voting laws so do you think that that makes whatever trump says whatever debate he has now started moved no I don't think it makes it wrote it is true that voting is a state enterprise but we know that president trump has it enormously high standing in the Republican Party and that we have seen Republican officials really follow his lead on on any number of things so I think it when the president says that this is open to fraud you should oppose it I think that is a message that any number of Republican governors and state legislators are going to hear I see on USA today that despite the president's prime time nightly show his approval ratings in general and on handling the virus which were high just took a dip have you seen the details so we we had six different national polls come out yesterday and in all six of them trump's our president trump's approval rating was below fifty percent it was exactly where it's been since the beginning of his administration his approval rating his overall job growth rate between forty and forty five percent in all six of these polls this reflects it's been interesting as you watch the president's approval rating since the pandemic became a big issue it popped up a few points early on which is what you would expect traditionally country faces a crisis the nation rallies around the president his approval rating goes up often goes up a lot a lot more than the few points to do with trump that now has subsided and he's back right in the range where he's been from the start it's such a prison terms approval rating has been so remarkably steady it's like it's like a heartbeat that never gets much faster or much slower that there's something else that we found that's interesting I think when you look at surveys both are nationwide surveys and statewide surveys you see the approval rating for other officials dealing with the corona virus spike up much higher like the Quinnipiac poll that came out yesterday Anthony Fauci has a seventy eight percent approval rating out T. for me as a junior yes your governor Andrew call just the generic your governor seventy four percent approval rating that's very high Andrew Cuomo in particular fifty nine percent approval rating that's double dip by double digits higher than the approval rating trump added this whole R. for handling the corona virus at forty six percent in fact Congress everybody hates Congress right Congress had an approval rating of forty four percent which is light golden territory for you know government institution it's undergone so much you know negative press and bad feelings are in recent years do you think you you have an instant analysis of why trump's approval ratings on handling coronavirus in particular have declined from that sixty percent peak that hit last month down to the forties that you're describing today because his strategy seems to be to take this prime time real estate on television every night and to be what he calls a cheerleader for America to present the good news to present the things that his government is doing to fight corona virus and rally the country around him that way as well as you know lob rhetorical bombs at his enemies will pick another one each day this is what he does at his rallies that have worked for him these have become like trump rallies of the air there obviously using them that way and they think they're hitting the right notes what's going on well they're hitting the right notes for preserving his base which is always been president trump's our primary goal politically as president is to reinforce his base at all costs he's almost never done things to try to expand his base and I think we see that instinct when it comes to these remarkable unprecedented daily briefings at the White House that go on for for two hours in which the president starts by reading a prepared statement about all the things the federal government is doing then he has skeptical questions from reporters who point out reports from places like New York City where things are.

"I just got a text from someone who says it looks like they believe that one campaign is spoofing oof in the cell phone number of the other candidate to make him look bad phillips angle to this is the Marcy Sacriston Philip Singleton race. is singleton has come under non stop stop attack from Sacriston just absolutely brutal attacks from her. She's in second place in his desperate to win. trying to motivate people single needs all the help he can singleton has come out and said he would oppose David Ralston as speaker which needs to happen. David Ralston needs needs to be a posed as speaker and Sacriston of course it's taken money from Dave Roulston so she's not gonna come out and opposing that's that's it's not a good situation. They continue to slam singleton with money. They've got money from lobbyists outside of the district strict pouring in to attack Philip Singleton and this is going to be one of those things where they want to beat him desperately to keep the speaker and they wanna say oh running against the speakers a bad thing running against the speaker. It's you you run against the speaker you lose. They're trying to make the speaker look like he's more powerful than he actually is and they're using in sacriston raced to do it a ton. Lots and lots of dollars are flowing into House district seventy one to help Mercy Saxon right now lots of money pouring into the district from lobbyists from legislators from the speaker and from others to try to make sure people think the speaker is not vulnerable and he es and all of these attacks they're accusing Philip Singleton of of actually being a closet Democrat. They're accusing him of being a right of their accusing him of harassing voters. They're accusing him of of everything under the sun short of murder they're accusing him and it's not gonNA help him. I don't think I think they're still GONNA lose. They're desperate. They're running a deeply nasty campaign but you got to understand the parameters show. The reason they're lying about singleton is because they need the media to shape narrative that you can't run against the speaker you see there are a lot of reporters in Georgia who want the Democrats to win next year. There are a lot of reporters in Georgia who really want the Democrats and they know the Democrats are going to use David Ralston because of the scandal of David Rawson protecting criminal clients they're going to use the Rawson scandal and it's cutting into your exercise time it stabbing you in the back nine and it's attacking your peace.

They want to raise property taxes coney county and state law requires. You have to have two meetings before you can raise taxes. You have to have two meetings and so that the public can come register their response to the proposal to raise taxes so you knew what oconee county's done over watkins ville they had their first meeting at eleven they have in their second meeting at five thirty and they're voting at six so the other meeting at eleven this morning so everyone was at working couldn't come <hes> they're having their next meeting at five thirty and they've got schedule right before the county commission meeting so they've only got thirty minutes to have to hear from those does dirty awful constituents who don't want their property taxes raised and then at six o'clock. They're gonna raise property taxes on the people of oconee county. They stack correct. That's what's happening here. The deck is stacked on the special election to happen the day after labor day. Everybody's just coming back from labor day. Vacation you got republicans is trying to help a democrat. Get into the runoff to block. All the people opposed to david ralston. This is why this is how the establishment wednesday play dirty like that. Here's the problem.

"Atlanta just passed a comprehensive smoking ban will get to it here in a minute a cause that those you walking down the street or on the beltline beltway or in piedmont park it affects you is well will get to that but first time in atlanta you're up next welcome hey erica earlier in the show you you describe the republican leader as using his position to obstruct justice and threatening to punish his enemies and still support support by the majority of republicans and you're referring to david ralston but a i thought you might have been referring to donald trump why not the same opinion of him i mean if you want to censure and teacher remove ralston for those things willing to feel the same way about donald trump will instead i don't wanna leave after church a david ralston i think his caucus should remove him and i tried to get republicans to not go with donald trump in twenty sixteen and a majority i'm disagreed with me i i i told him the whole time to stay away from donald trump and they disagreed an so now when we come twenty twenty i were looking at a couple of scenarios let's see do we still need the speaker of the house no we can't find a better speaker of the house one who's not going to cost us our state house majority but what about the presidential race well let's see we got bill weld who say proabortion a guy who's got no chance so donald trump's gonna be the republican nominee versus what exactly if you replace david rolston who were you replacing him with you're replacing with another republican you replaced donald trump who were you replacing him with he and insane same democrat who wants to scrap private healthcare insurance in give you legal aliens healthcare insurance take it away from you and give it to them a so no the the two are in analysis i i appreciate the bait and switch on the call and try to be clever but that's not really a clever analogy because you replace david rolston you get another republican you replace donald trump you get who some nut job democrat get it now speaking of which just how out of touch are these democratic in and if you wanna replace the president's well you've got cnn pulling out that shows hang on i wanna make sure i reid these numbers to you accurately so that you don't think i'm just making it up 'em the cnn post debate poll shows fifty nine percent of all voters oppose giving free healthcare to illegal immigrants and yet every democrat on stage supported giving free healthcare to illegal embers and we had two debates on two nights and they all agreed only twenty one percent of voters support abolishing private healthcare insurance and giving medicaid for all in his medicate they called medicare but ultimately lee be medicaid only twenty one percent and again every single democrat on both nights held up their hand and said they supported that by the way only thirty percent less than a third of democrats only thirty percent of democrats support medicaid for all abolishing she private healthcare insurance and yet that's where the democrats did so you you were placed david ralston you get any better republican you replace donald trump you get it insane democrat completely out of touch with the american people so thanks for trying but that's really a dumb comparison now let let's delve into the city of atlanta ordinance just just so you know because if you look outside the city it's going to affect you is well it is a very comprehensive ban 'em the conference a ban it prohibits smoking at the airport what are we gonna do with passer you you've seen him you get off you're flat i came back from san francisco the other day i mean there were people who were desperate to go to those little stinky rooms and smoke they were desperate to do it and they were they were rushing out they're not gonna be able to do that anymore they're going to have to contain themselves because those rooms are gonna be shut down but it also affects restaurants so there is a right up the street from us here at wsb a there's the oldest still operating bar in 'em in the city it is a great place to go if you're a cubs fan it's the black bear tavern an essay smoking facility after three pm i listen i don't care because i do not smoke cigarettes i find them to be extraordinarily smelly in my wife has lung cancer so we try to avoid these places are really doesn't doesn't affect me i'll tell you though when i find more annoying than cigarettes are these people who are convinced that vaping makes them look cool when it actually makes them look like an idiot disease steam coming out of their mouth nose and ears and other orifices of their bodies just vaping it's just it look stupid can we just admit this that i cigarette at least looks like something they civilized human being might engage in in vaping just looks ridiculous it really does 'em it rule the city of atlanta is treating vaping just like smoking and not only that you will be prohibited from smoking or vaping the sidewalks of the city of atlanta you will be prohibited from smoking on the rights of way of the city which are these city sidewalks more importantly let me just read you from actual ordinance chubby unlawful for any reason to smoke or vape in outdoor parks and recreational facilities located within the city of atlanta including but not limited to parks athletic fields aquatic areas golf courses tennis courses hiking walking biking trails playgrounds off leash areas in spectator in concession areas you will not be allowed to smoke in any of these locations in the city of atlanta so you wanna get on the beltline in in fire up you're you're silly looking they think he you will get a ticket you wanna stand outside on the par on the sidewalk in atlanta you will get a ticket a you can stand according to this ordinance you will be allowed to smoke standing right outside buildings almost is prohibited 'em but you can't go out onto the sidewalk to smoke you'll have to do it right by you're building but not in the city right of way on sidewalks you you won't be able to know what is it me there actually are a couple of cool cigar places in town but i do like to go a highland cigars one an there is a carve out a four establishment the generate twenty percent of their gross sales or two hundred fifty thousand dollars from tobacco products and don't have anyone in the facility eighteen or younger under the age of eighteen i should say a so i guess highland will be safe but general restaurants a piedmont park the beltline the rest of them nope you you won't be able to smoke you won't be able to vape so at least you within the city is basically prohibiting you from looking ridiculous a but what what what will happen to you well you'll get a fine of not exceeding one hundred dollars the first violation and then there after a two hundred dollar violation for each additional violation within one year so as long as you're willing to pony up a two to pay basically three hundred dollars per to infractions and then two hundred dollars there after four year and then i guess it resets back two hundred that's that's what you're dealing with in the city of atlanta they just passed it fourteen the do paul righty let us go to the phones here on wsb chris in johns creek welcome to the program hi eric.

positive a but investigators have been called in a my goodness gracious we need to talk about marianne williamson folks marianne williamson well tyler cohen is d v economist a well respected he's a professor of economics at george mason university writes the blog marginal revolution in he makes some points about marianne williamson who is a little bit nutty she actually tweeted out earlier earlier today she wants people to send her twenty four dollars because pete buttigieg raised twenty four million dollars let me let me just reads you part of this from tyler going i do not usually covered candidate debates but having watched last week's to democratic the grounds i have some observations here's the perspective of a lifelong economist independent and political outsider politically bates can be watched the personalities revealed the policy disgust or the values expressed i gleaned the most from the last approach my biggest impression is simply how much the dominant candidates agree in terms of basic values there were a lot of sympathy for vulnerable groups the can and should be helped by direct politically action these groups glued the for immigrants americans on health insurance victims of gun violence there is a lot less focus on boosting productivity tippety any conomic growth which helps people indirectly or on identifying the relative trade offs behind policy choices decision making can be improved now let's move on down to marianne williamson in tyler cohen's it's statements when she first began to speak i googled her as i suspect did many other americans her eccentric manner can be distracting but i recommend instead focusing on her values her performance suggests the democrats need to take a broader thirty percent of values into account sometimes love a new agey spiritual values other times historic values her answer about making america the find this country for child grow up in was perhaps the best single moment of other debate in that stemmed from her understanding the values i don't think she has a chance to win but she's these extra voice the rest of the democrats need the shake them out of their conformity very interesting he should say that republicans are now donating marianne williamson to keep her in the democratic base listen the woman is a kook she is eighty eight kook but there's something larger here that i if you'll allow me just meditate on this for for aim moment a pride month is now over an i noticed how deeply religious it became a this time around i mean you had companies changing their social media logos rainbows corporations virtue signaling that they support it 'em democrats out there with all of this new agey stuff in the month and now they've got marianne williamson on stage a woman who sees angels everywhere believed that you can visualize world peace and it will come and she's on stage around the same time a alexandro andrew kazu cortez is talking about her a in her horoscope and astrology is if it's real there is he a you know religion does not go away you may rejected the old god's deals god god a but you'll get new god's they're all idols alpha times is the worship of self and were seen this in the democratic party were seen this within teeth were were seen it religious zeal that is taking over the democratic party now part of what is happening here you need to understand from a legal perspective not just a theological perspective what you have is a group of people who rely on supreme court precedent that says essentially eight theism is not religion therefore easy ism is the default in american society that secularism is not a religion secularism must be the fall the supreme court has determined these things the problem is that you can't keep religion out of society and so secularism eight theism they have developed these the same rhythms in doctrines of religion in various ways there are sacraments abortion being one of them there are strange beliefs like the belief a country the science the boys could become girls girls can become boys there are are values judgements that you must give your money to the government which will then decide who is worthy to receive it from the government they wanna supplant private charity with public action tune in much of it is virtue signaling many of the people who marching the streets within a beating up journalists they do it out of a religious deal they they do it because that is their pastor salvation is it let me read this from andrew sullivan a hater someone writes in christianity the rules much kinder expo center even someone who commits morals and hasn't instant chance of redemption you rip it you ask god for forgiveness absolution follows and if you start over it is actually incumbent on other christians to help you succeed again the which immediately from condemnation to support the same in recovery all you have to his own your addiction in helplessness make amends start over day today you'll being courage supported cheered on by you're fellows but in the woke era the cancellation process is far more brutal an abject apology from the centers require but just as a starter if he apology is not a form of complete and utter so flagellation or fails to meet the standards of woke orthodoxy you'll still get cancelled and if you're cancelled for you're unwilling opinion or a stupid stupid impulsively you're permanently cancelled and at that point you will have absolutely no support from your peers whatever you do any attempt to revive a career will be immediately suppressed whatever you once said clump sillier foolishly will never be forgotten any sign of social or career reemergence will meet another recitation of you're since which they should the prime minister the web going forever like some gregorian chip it may even be the future will culture will make you look even worse and therefore even less forgivable were seeing this take root in the democrats regrets it is religion you know cs lewis once walked in on a conference of people at oxford university a they were debating the differences between religions and in positive and how all of them were basically a variation of the same thing in one of them said louis what separates christianity from other religions in a louis said well this is easy grace no other religion has a concept of grace is true it's true no no no religion has a concept of grace like christianity not even close no they're they're a philosopher she tried to squeezy it other religions this is kind of like it but not really and we certainly don't have it among a secular woke nece there is no gracing were seeing that which you'll by the cnn polling has come out cnn polling shows the joe biden has plummeted in support but interesting they were where is joe biden losing support joe biden is not losing support from black voters even with the bussing controversy in in calmly harris he's losing support among rich white liberals that's that's where joe biden is losing support rich white liberals because he's not woke is a cultural in fash infatuation now i i wonder i promise this earlier replay this quote this is this is comal harris engaging with joe biden the bussing issue that set so many people off the release cost her the skyrocketing again who did it calls kamala harris skyrocket west with rich white liberals not with black voters and i'm gonna now director said vice president biden i cannot believe you are racist and i agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground but i also believe any of this personal and i'm very it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of tools united states senators who built their reputations and career we're on the segregation of brace in this country and not only that but you also work with them to oppose bussing end you know there was a little girl in california who's part of the second class integrate her public school bus to school every day and that little girl with me an she one massive applause for the answer in the polling shows she is skyrocketing now she benefited greatly from the debate again though this is the key she benefited from whites now for black people many of whom are showing solidarity with joe biden because he was brock obama's vice president now that will shift the polling data will we'll shift among black voters if calmly harris is able to rise even further in the democratic party a i think a the chance to have a second black present plus female black a president's states i think that matters greatly 'em in in in sewell see some of the polling shift but it is it's a staggering thing to see joe biden surfer eight ears is brock obama's vice president and he may be done in by this stuff it's it's still his lose but he looks like he may wanna lose it and i thought forever you know my buddy philip who writes with me at at the resurgence says it's not gonna be biden cause of these reasons and i'm thinking it's still gonna be by and then i'm thinking increasingly i could be wrong about this as as the left goes further left the democrats go with them and joe biden's left the last man standing for the democratic party that existed just four years ago but there's something else happening here to we need to discuss some of these attacks on joe biden that are only we just now coming out why is eric erickson i'm still here.

sitting up i was talking laurie wilson in this interview from a while back in a bell david ralston end they continued ongoing delays of trials hills of criminal defendants that he represented including one of the she was involved with and just just listen to some of this about the delays timber twenty fourteen march of twenty fifteen october of twenty sixteen february twenty seventeen march twenty eighteen in june of twenty eighteen yes unfortunately yes in four of those were seven it for those were out of session a couple of those i february and march first sure obviously probably march twenty fifteen march eugene through three seventy village which would have been insertion right but for those out of social this case just can't do welled up now can't end that it's very sad that 'cause i mean it's at a lot the victims 'em they can he's just you know delaying justice in the lane closure in a lot of cases an m it's it's completely illegal immoral 'em irrational i think if i could come up with anymore i words to describe what he's daily 'em how old is you're how old is your daughter now she's twenty one and she is every day my my blessing in my gift from heaven hold onto the subject to closure yes sir and it's very difficult because i mean she has a lot of chronic health concerns an 'em if that wasn't hard enough detail is having this horrific thing happened to her and then have a bunch of people rallied around the defendant and actually you know the santan and then you know he's got the speaker of the house at his representation yeah there you go imagine these people in be ad campaigns it's it's going happened a it is it's absolutely going to happen in the republicans in the state house they are i mean they're being given enough rope it's it's gonna end badly forum and now you've got 'em foghorn horn leghorn speaker of the house saying hey will just bringing the vice president's in and get him to fundraise as vice president's own david relatives beck and call the begin with or are you republicans in the house going to stand up for your colleagues against foghorn leghorn here or are you gonna stand up for you're colleagues who dared taking mon or you're gonna joined the speaker in in wiping out ten members of the state house ten members of the state house when you have these fifteen seat majority the math does not work in your favor it works in the democrats favor it just it this is absurd 'em but this is where we are with george politics a win win self preservation kicks in when the republicans in the house realize the polling is working against them a jim jordan has raised the money for the democrats an they're going to attack the republicans for defending in propping up speaker then then then they will get a clue and by then it will be too late unfortunately the democrats will take back the house right before redistricting begins in georgia right before redistricting the republicans in georgia will lose their house majority because of david rolston and right before redistricting so the democrats get to draw the lines a this is what we're looking at folks this is what we're looking at the speaker can't deny it in his caucus knows it to that's the crazy thing now we we could do all day this but we can't because there's plenty of other news i'm here till seven we've got so much news tonight i'm here at three hours tonight you could stick with me you're whole ride old i'm kim kun we visit with bussing for a moment please do you know i've never actually written on a school bus i i haven't i didn't grow up in this country 'em i yes so so much privileged tons of privilege here a you know by the way i to the intersection analogy tests that they've got an internet intersection alley test best online it if you get a hundred you're totally oppressed in and therefore fully intersectional if you get a one you're you're like super christian white male and have no say in society i gotta one i was very proud of my one i've never heard those goes i grew up in the middle east a we did not have yellow school buses ashley before before a i moved middle east i did have spent some time in kindergarten you're an 'em these school bus driver in my neighborhood was well known to be drunk in my mother refused to allow me as a child to be on the school bus so she would drive me to school every day which wasn't that far to begin with but there is there is no way she one of my sisters and me on the school bus and and so i've never actually been on the yellow school bus i never have 'em but kamala harris calmly harris she wants to do school busing she wants to bring it back bussing was imposed on school districts around the country not just in the south in the sixties and seventies to aggressively desegregate schools where you would essentially take children from a neighborhood in bust them across town into other areas so the you get a fifty fifty racial mixing all the schools in it fostered resentment and not just in the white community bus seen overtime became deeply deeply unpopular with the black community because many black families decided that bus scene was breaking up their neighborhoods before that happened white people whose wife you and they still largely due white people living in white areas by people in black you're is in the neighborhood schools now the reasons people lived in in those areas if they have historic reasons in segregation but in modern times they're also people who you people keep together we see it on rail in college campuses were white students she's like she just hang out with black students it's where people are familiar i thankfully my neighborhood very well integrated a but it's not something that is popular across the board with with iser the wider the black community these days because a lot of black families did site bussing as a reason their neighborhood schools fell part they were neurological their neighborhood school they couldn't walk school they had the bus tickets at the get up at six o'clock in the morning to be carted across town to the white school they were actually getting a great education there because the kids were so tired the white parents hated it because they were being part of the cross down to the black neighborhood their neighborhood school the racially integrated and kamala harris wants to go back to it now she is a product of bussing in she views it as benefiting her 'em and i i listen god bless her i think that's that's great she benefited from it she's got a story to tell an she kid in contrast herself with joe biden but having discussion in two thousand nineteen about the democrats they wanna take your healthcare insurance away they wanna give it to illegal aliens an they want a bus you're kids across town to a different school do they really think that's gonna win the election in twenty twenty who do they really think that's gonna happen 'cause i'm just not so sure sure this is a winning strategy but the democrats in i'll tell you who's really concerned about the strategy when we come back.

"You i we will get into the national news of the day including andy no in tacking portland 'em but that there's been a lot of that today over national news media wanna focus on some georgia news that isn't getting attention a the these other big stories are getting elsewhere the biggest i think is the speaker of the house i had a closed door meeting with republicans up at my favorite place in georgia this weekend barnsley guards i love barnsley gardens if you haven't been largely guard you should go to the merge the gardens i need to go towards the gardens my soul needs to be refreshed and it happens they're they're they closed door meeting at barnsley no this isn't an ad 'em it's just i need to go there i love that place so they had it was their caucus meeting end in the speaker is asked about or or the issue comes up of the speaker and the company attacks from the democrats owned the speaker of the house end the speaker is super defiant he says those who are calling for his ouster bad decisions have bad consequences in then he says this if there's a snake in your house kill it in other words david rolston is unrepentant doesn't think he did anything wrong an wants to ruined those who have called for him to leave now this is actually having a behind the scenes z opposite effect because they're several people who have been very defiant on behalf of the speaker of the house who are now coming forward and behind the scenes still not yet public although i think will soon be public saying oh my gosh we gotta get this guy out of here he's nuts a it's striking that this league so quickly tuesday atlanta journal constitution the speaker thought this was going to be behind closed doors and people would not learned of this an members of his own caucus leaked to the press end people are really upset about it i let me paint you a broader picture there there have been ten members of the house of representatives of republicans who said that david rolston needs to go and now the speaker associated there's a snake in your house kill it bad decisions have bad consequences in other words he wants to kill those who are opposed him metaphorically speaking wants to destroy their political careers years according to the speaker on multiple people who were in the room where confirming these quotes from the speaker he wants to destroy those who want him removed a speaker you'll is i i'm i've been convinced for a while now but i think this affirms the david ralston is mental midget demand is not very bright politically he has stayed in his position through thuggery in fear a because he's not very smart politically let let me paint a broader picture for for you here the republicans in the state house representatives heavy fifteen seat majority ten of those members have come forward to say the speaker needs to go if five more of those members come forward and say the speaker needs to go suddenly a majority of the house representatives no longer wants the speaker there or do they if you had fifteen members members of the georgia house representatives republicans viewed fifteen members say you know what we're no longer participating with the republicans were disgusted by david ralston will come back when he leaves until then were going suddenly the republicans and the democrats are at parody in the house representatives for leadership in the democrats can call a vote in this actually's politically smart because it helps the republicans do you really think the democrats dinner going to maintain david rolston his position because we know they wanna used issue in twenty twenty we know the democrats in georgia want to use david rolston as an issue we know these ads were coming about the republican standing behind david ralston so you've got ten of them already calling for us and leave the democrats the republicans you had five more to it and they all come out and say you know what we're not gonna participate with the caucus until david ralston leaves then suddenly the democrats the ball's in their court andy either affirmed david ralston an destroy their chances politically of using him as an issue in twenty twenty or they reject david rolston as well that becomes a big issue but what is david rolston promising behind the scenes to save his fifteen seat majority it actually makes no sense no i i need the preface this i i need this by saying i'm a huge fan of the vice president's united states mike this i i'm a huge fan of mike pence's i adore the man i have known him for years i have a russell kirk the conservative mind book it sits on my desk it is from mike pence is signed by him it was a gift to me when i first got started in conservative politics what a good washington i go with the white house i have lunch with vice president taking my set up there and a couple of weeks were having lunch they were we have invited him to speak at the resurgent gathering in august i can't tell you whether or not he's confirmed but we've invited him i like mike pence i'm a huge fan of mike pence the speaker of the house has floated having mike pence come down to do a fundraiser for the fifteen republicans being targeted by the democrats fifteen republicans being targeted by the democrats so the speaker wants to bring the vice president of the united states in two georgia to do a fundraiser to help the fifteen republicans who were being targeted by the democrats the reason those fifteen republicans are in a difficult position is because the president is donald trump as much as i like mike pence these fifteen republicans are in danger of losing their seats in costing the republicans the state house majority because these fifteen republicans living seats or living districts where the majority of the people no longer like trump and pence so we're gonna bring the guy associated with the administration that the majority of voters in these fifty districts don't like to fund raised to help keep these people in the state house that's really not smart politically no if you bring in mike pence and you do a huge fundraiser for all the republicans that's one thing that's great but they cashed it as this is how we're gonna help keep these fifteen people in office a you know this stuff is gonna leak you gotta know this stuff is gonna leak if you don't you're you're bigger any thought you were already thought you were a big idiot so what do you think the democrats are gonna do mijo this this is not break stuff that this is not bright by the speaker of the house now he she saying i want he wants to kill these these ten members of the republican conference you want him gone a speaker i have a question for the republican members of the state legislature are are you so tied to the speaker of the house they were willing to lose your majority to the democrats argue so tied to the speaker of the house that you're actually willing to lose you're majority because fifteen of you're colleagues bolt from the conference because they're disgusted by the speakers remarks but you just can't step back for just a minute who says this i mean who actually says this is like something from a badly scripted movie where the the speaker of the house are due to a class of zell miller said it sneaks in your house you kill the snakes we're gonna we're gonna kill these stolen guns who are get me i mean this is just he's like foghorn leghorn is speaker of the house i mean what what a mental midget this guy is to to be up there saying stuff like this that he's gonna punish the ten members of the house who are saying stay in this guy these go by the way why why are these people calling for him to leave i think it's important for those of you who are new to this you haven't been paying attention why are people calling for david ralston to leave well they're colin for david rolston to leave because david rolston has used his position as speaker to keep criminal cases from going to trial for years end in fact it became very well known but the speaker of the house was using it abusing his position to keep cases from going to trial for years there are people who were quoted a one person at least in aj she was quoted saying he knew if he paid david rolston money david ralston we keep his case from ever going to trial i mean this is not new stuff this is been out there for a while an you've got people who are willing to participate in that kim kim kun you wait for the ad campaign of the twenty one year old who when she was fourteen was raped by pastor allegedly the pastor hires david rolston the guerrillas twentyone now she can't get any closure because of david rolston water the ad campaigns gonna be you know you you you may be as republican as the day is long you may hold your nose and vote for every republican that comes out because you hate the democrat so much but now ask yourself those squishy voters in these fifteen districts who hate the president's already don't much care for the social conservative bit of the republicans right now and they're just itching to find a way to protest what do you think they're going to do what do you think they're going to do with the trump administration comes down to try to salvage the republican majority the david ralston can't salvage 'cause nobody likes see what do you think they're gonna do when he adds start playing of the teenage rape victims whose cases are still pending who's who's assailants they're still out there because they went to david ralston and he's kept him out of jail what do you think these people are gonna do an david ross those responses to kill the descendants of the dissidents kill the dissidents kill the people who oppose and that that's david ralston stated response if there's a snake in are house kill it on what to do with the people who warning gone do you really think that in these fifteen districts these fifteen districts do you really think they're gonna vote republican do you really think they're gonna keep the republican majority win all that starts happening to you really believe that if you do i've got a great bridge to so you in brooklyn you

"The Ben Shapiro show. So demonstrating their unbelievable bias CNN headlines. A big story. Like this a strict heartbeat abortion. Bill was just approved by the Georgia house goes to governor. I love how they described as strict we need the adjective, they're strict heartbeat abortion Bill. I remember when the New York state legislature passed a Bill that allowed abortion up two point birth. I don't remember them saying a permissive New York state abortion Bill. I don't remember that. Maybe they did. But I just don't remember it Joe sterling from CNN rights, the so-called heartbeat abortion. Bill one final approval Friday in the Georgia general assembly and was sent to the governor is expected to sign the controversial measure, the Republican majority. House voted in favor of house Bill forty one called the living. Infants fairness and equality act. The Bill is approved ninety two seventy eight the governor Brian Kemp Republican supports the legislation. The legislation would ban abortion after a fetal. Heartbeat is detected as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Many women don't know they're pregnant standpoint. But that does not matter at present. In Georgia women can have abortion up to their twenty th week of pregnancy. So this is certainly strong move. The bill's authors state Representative Ed settlers said abortion is of our Barrick procedure. And he said there are lots of other options that exist for women including adoption and the morning after pill. The ACLU says that it will go to court, obviously. And this will raise the level of the supreme court. You would assume now this is simply the basic life position, which is that babies have value and that once once a human life is conceived. It is indeed a human life of value. That's it. That's all the says it is perfectly logical. It is perfectly reasonable. But in Hollywood, protecting babies very very, very bad. Very bad. Thus the industry now is talking about boycotting the state of Georgia. The industry about fifty actors have now signed onto a letter written by Eliza Milano. Great public intellectual illicit Milano who Dante Handmaid's tale outfits protest, judge Cavanaugh Olisa Milano one of our great scholars. One of the great brains of our time. I think. Just amazing. She wrote a letter that was sent to Georgia house speaker, David Ralston, Georgia governor, Brian Kemp. The letter says this dangerous and deeply flawed Bill mimics many others, which already been deemed unconstitutional. As many who identify small government conservatives we remind you the government is never bigger than when it is inside a woman's body or in her doctor's office. So now, they're going to make a libertarian case for abortion. So suddenly, the libertarians got it all these Democrats are amazing. They're libertarians who knew also is not a libertarian argument to say that you should allow people to kill other people that sort of the basis of this pro-life, I'm pretty close to libertarian on government matters. And I'm pro-life. So are a lot of libertarians letter says this Bill would remove the possibility of women receiving reproductive healthcare. No, they can get reproductive healthcare. They can have prenatal care and all sorts of things many women to undergo unregulated hidden procedures at great risk to their health. No one knew that either. It wouldn't force anybody to do that. If you choose to do that that would be on you. The letter signers vowed to do everything in our power to move. Our industries we see for steep for women. So they say we can't imagine being elected officials who had say to their constituents I enacted a law that was so evil. It chased billions of dollars out of our state's economy. It's not the most effective campaign slogan, but rest assured, we'll make it yours should have come to pass. So in other words Hollywood is saying we won't come to Georgia. Georgia was going to say screw you who cares. Really first of all all of these states should get rid of their tax breaks to Hollywood just have low taxes, generally, it shouldn't give tax breaks to Hollywood to bring a stupid movie out there. They said we want to stay in Georgia. We want to continue to support the wonderful people businesses and communities we've come to love in the peach state, but we will not do. So silently first of all the idea of boycotting an entire state is idiocy. It's idiocy specifically because a lot of you really think the people working with the Hollywood actors coming in to Georgia are typically hardcore Republicans, I have my doubts. So who has signed the silly thing. This was signed by people including Amy Schumer, amber Tamblyn Alec Baldwin. If there's one person who we know stands up for women at every turn. It's Alec Baldwin guys. Don, Cheadle, Rosie O'Donnell patent Oswald, silver, Sarah Silverman. Sarah, Silverman essence, Atkins, ZOA Deuba. Gabriel union, Christina Applegate, Ben Stiller, Sean Penn. I mean, when I think somebody who just women's right activist, Sean Penn man, David cross, Mia Farrow, Colin Hanks, and Bradley Whitford among others. The state of Georgia should simply withdraw all of its tax benefits for Hollywood right now. Preemptively they should say you don't get to come here. You don't wanna come find? You don't get to come. And that'll be what it is. And we'll deal with that the attempt to for Hollywood's trend control what other states do. How would they like it? If Georgia did the same thing to California based on California's politics. How does this make the country better in any real way? Boycotting a business that you don't like because of their their actions in public. It's not something I'm generally a fan of. But at least I understand it. There's a tactic to it. Those sorts of boycotts, at least have a logic boycotting the entire state of Georgia because you don't like their abortion policy, which presumably is not supported by some of the people in Georgia. Now that doesn't mean it's a democracy guys. It's not a dictatorship. Pretty incredible. By the way, all these people will go film over and dictatorships and natural dictatorships. They'll go make movies over in Jordan, for example. Alrighty, well, coming up we'll be having a conversation with Dr contact Akkhmed. She's a member of the council on foreign relations. She's also the author of the land of invisible woman. She has a new article called outlawing Slama phobia would help jihadis over at the UK spectator talking about why it is that the new attempt to brands everybody in Islamic job. And then shutdown all debate over radical Islam is actually incredibly dangerous for moderate and reform Muslims. We'll talk with.

"But she said delays complicate the prosecution of crimes. Now, this is just this is a problem here. You got a quote from one of the former district attorney's who's looked at this the asks, and let me just give you this, quote, you have a child that's molested when he is eleven or twelve years old by the time, we got to trial, the boys were bigger and stronger the person than the person, they allege molested them these things should not matter. But you deal in the real world, and they do matter. In other words, you you get to a situation where suddenly by the time you go to trial the person who was the victims. Now bigger than the person. Who was the victimize are in these two things cast doubt in the jury's mind. Maybe they didn't want to go to trial, except here's the problem. The AJC interviewed the victim who is now twenty two. According to the notes at the time that the case was dismissed, it was obvious. The twenty two year old victim did not intend to participate in the case. He never filed a victim impact statement. But the alleged victim in the case says he was prepared to testify. He says, quote, I received a few calls from the district attorney asking me to testify on certain dates, and then would get another call saying it's been delayed eventually the coals and all communication stop from the speaker or from the DA after also became speaker. Very very, very interesting. But what I find more interesting that people now making excuses for the speaker. And what what I find most interesting are a lot of these people actually want him to go. But they don't think they're support enough for him to go. And so they're not doing anything and the number of constituents who I'm hearing from who are trying to reach the legislators in the legislatures are giving excuses. They're blaming the victims. They're saying the victims were credible. They're believing David Ralston word for it. Or some of them are say, well, I talked to defense attorneys, Vincent thirty. So this is perfectly natural. Well, of course, defensively are going to, and are you really gonna have a judge be public about the speaker of the house representatives where the legislators scared of him to we are being governed by chickens. But you know, there's an upside I hear that Roulston to stay in the good graces of conservatives..

"Georgia's speaker of the house, David Ralston is one of the most powerful lawmakers in the state, but speaker of the house isn't his only job Ralston. Also, an attorney running a private law practice and knew investigation from the Atlanta Journal constitution and channel two action. News alleges that Ralston misused his power as a lawmaker to reschedule court proceedings. Fifty seven times over two years, and that was a delay injustice for dozens of Georgians here discussed that investigation. And what that could mean for victims is Johnny Edwards and investigative reporter at the Atlanta Journal constitution. Thanks for joining us. Johnny. Thank you. Thanks for having me. So let's talk a little bit about who David Ralston is for non Georgians out there. Well, as you said in your introduction. He is one of the most powerful lawmakers in Georgia if not the most powerful actually powerful political figures in Georgia the way the system works here. If you're speaker of the house, you're pretty much on par with the governor for how much power you wield. Nothing. No bill. No budget. Nothing gets through without your approval. He has the ability to assign committees committee chairs that sort of thing. So it hasn't credible influence and Wilbur finding right now is just everybody in the state who's in any position to take any action or launch an inquiry about this is either falls under the category of being in fear of him or indebted to him. I just mentioned fifty seven times that Ralston was able to delay cases over two years. How has he managed to do that? We examined about two dozen cases and just in four counties, and that's not all the counties in these circuits. So there's probably a lot more out there that we have we didn't capture, but that's fifty seven times that he wrote to the judge in these cases and said, I'm not going to be in court because I have other legislative duties and obligations or I'm in session. So the issue is that there's there's a state law that dates back more than a century that any lawmaker who is also a practicing attorney does not have to be. Be compelled to court if they have legislative business now for the majority of that time that that law was enacted. It was just during this the session which in Georgia's forty day legislative session each year and the law also covered three weeks after that in two thousand six there was an amendment made to the law, which covered any legislative business year round. And because Mr. Roulston is the speaker of the house he can come up with all kinds of other reasons all year round that he can't be in court, and it might be something. So mundane is giving a speech to a rotary club. Or it might be something important like attending a Bill signing or it could be, you know, meeting at the capitol to discuss staffing issues. But the issue is he's got all these cases pending in. These are serious cases, very heinous crimes. People are accused of people who've been victimized, and he is delaying the cases over and over and over and over and that benefits his law practice that is a that is a benefit to the to the clients. Let's talk a little bit more about the cases. And you're saying that that David Ralston's private practice would benefit from this. Tell us a little bit about what types of cases have been delayed and how he would benefit. Well, they there's a saying that a criminal defense is a lot like wine gets better with age. So this time passes in these cases, all kinds of things happens that that chips away at the prosecutor's case like witnesses backout victims, get exasperated and back out of testifying pressing charges. Police officers who investigated the alleged crime might get might retire. Move jobs or even get fired quit the forest evidence disappears. Not to mention just it's it's easier to impeach a witness on the stand because their memory gets. So so fuzzy, but these cases range from things like do you is all the way up to child molestation? There was a case many years ago where probably the first victim to speak out about this was a woman who. Whose husband and daughter had been killed in a car accident in Mr. Roulston represented the driver of the other car, and that case lingered for more than eight years, and she raised quite a fuss spoke to the television news station channel to several times. And was speaking out about this and that finally got resolved. But we we took a look at this issue again several years later, and we found like I said child molestation child cruelty terroristic threats salt, domestic violence, all kinds of serious crimes people are charged with and I'm wondering if this is considered an obstruction of Justice for the folks who have their cases delayed. I don't know if that would fall technically under the under the statute of obstruction of Justice. He's pretty much covered legally because this law is is written. So so strictly, and so clearly the another issue here another dimension is why judges in these circuits have not done. More to move these cases along. I mean there there is a way that a judge using using the state bar rules could demand candor to the court and could have said, okay. Mr. Roulston year, you've missed all these court dates, and this is dragging on very long. You seem to be doing this in a strategic way, I want to know when you can be in court, give me a date, and we'll we'll do it. And I'm not sure that might not have happened in some cases, just not in the records and nobody's talking to us. So we can't know for sure, but it certainly isn't happening on a consistent basis. And I think one reason for that is because he wields so much power because he is so influential he has a wheels an incredible amount of influence over the judicial system, he has two appointments to the judicial qualifications commission, which can investigate and recommend discipline against judges. He also has influenced in recommending judges to be appointed to benches and things like that. So the bottom line is I don't think many people up there, especially in his backyard one across them or tangle with them. What's the public response Bannon? And is there any sort of ethics board that can hold him accountable. Whether it's the house ethics committee, which again, you just by the very definition house ethics committee. You can imagine that he's going to hold a lot of influence there too. The public response has been from where I'm sitting pretty overwhelming Twitter's been blowing up I was sitting here. Just just right now trying to respond to some of the many emails I received we're hearing that legislators are getting just getting dozens and dozens of calls and emails to their offices. But that's not translating to any any out pouring of voicing any protest by any of the lawmakers themselves. They're being completely quiet. They're not speaking publicly. They're they're just going about business as usual. And and the reason we're getting off the record this again, nobody wants to cross Mr. Roulston. I'm just I'm hearing from all these readers who were saying just like you're asking what can be done who can someone changed log and someone hold them accountable. And I'm just telling them, I, you know, I just I just don't know how this is going to shake out him, there's several different avenues. But all of those are kind of in some way compromised by his his influence or his power. Johnny Edwards is an investigative reporter at the Atlanta Journal constitution..

"I know Chris Chandler, and I were just talking about this off air. I do not generally like to be in huge crowds doing stuff like that today being the master ceremonies for the event too many people don't like it don't like being in big crowds like that. And then, of course, it's a big crowds a politician. So you got all the people who who I've talked about other radio. And it could be awkward wasn't that case today though, because I I was positioned. But still there was a there was a cinnamon from some of the activists who were there who feel already a little bit. Worried that even though it was largely socially conservative rural voters who got elected that they're not going to get anything out of this legislative session. And I think that is a concern not on the the brain front, but really on the state legislature front, particularly David Ralston, signaling he intends to block pretty much any socially conservative legislation that he thinks might be divisive and harm Republicans in the suburbs. And I just again, I really do think that Republicans and Democrats alike are misreading the twenty eighteen election, which I think has so much to do with the personality of Donald Trump and those who were perceived as being tied to Donald Trump more than the Acura policies. I mean, I'm I'm sorry. But you can't convince me that the suburbs. Suddenly woke up liberal on election day that they're suddenly in favor of massively high taxes and suddenly in favor of of an explosion of transgender rights and suddenly favor foreseen, Christian butchers, bakers and candlestick makers to provide goods and services for for for gay wet. Things. I just I I don't think that happened. I think what happened is they have a profound dislike for the president. They decided that Brian Kemp and was too close to him in that the Republicans were holding him accountable and they wanted to change the dynamic and they wanted the congressional front. They came close to winning on the gubernatorial front, and I just think that what speaker Roulston and Republicans in the state legislature are doing is essentially they are funneling the frustrations of the Republican voters in Georgia to the point that we will see the next Republican running for governor in Georgia who gets the nomination be a pox on both your house Trump type because if you keep having conservative voters elect you to keep you in power, and you keep giving them the middle finger in policy wins. Then at some point they're going to raise the finger back. Back at you and say, a pox on your house to and you're going to see someone run successfully who runs on the repeated betrayals of Republicans in the state to actually support the initiatives. They claim they are going to sport and refer. I think is is chief among them, particularly as the state attracts more and more out of state business that brings in people to the state who are very much left of center and take a my way or the highway. I wanna make this just like the the left wing state. I just left you're going to have these divides more and kudos to the governor for wanting to find the common shared ground. But there are divisions in the Republicans legislature. We're going to have to pick a side. And if they don't pick the side of the voters who keep voting for them. Well, there's going to be held to pay for them. Some of you there's hell to pay for you. Because traffic we'd better go..
