"Seven Otari on news and talk to eighty W A. Okay. What's happening? Welcome back. I'm still in the studio with Representative Don McLeod district one. Oh, five state of Georgia. Just finished her first year of a very difficult legislative session. She's the first Jamaican-born elected state official in the history of Georgia. Representative. Let me ask you. What were some of the most difficult bills this session? There was there was a few was, of course, the the heartbeat Bill and the confederate monument Bill was really really difficult for me as well. The heartbeat Bill and for for for those who are pro-life. This was not a good Bill. It was a bad Bill. First of all this. We have a statute into state of Georgia that basically says that life begins with when you have circulatory and respiratory system as well as a heartbeat, and they're basically taken that and just saying just a heartbeat and six weeks for most woman is not enough time to even know you're pregnant to make that decision, and it goes against what the federal law read for role villes versus way is already law, and it's just it's just a really bad Bill with unintended consequences of I've talked about this. There's a part of the Bill that's added for men pain child support for the six week fetus, and there's no way a man would know that he's the parent, you know, doing a DNA test in which if you can't do one it's pretty expensive. And they're saying it's the moms responsibility to do additive done. Yeah. And and a woman I mean, she can tell I'm not trying to be facetious, but women could tell them several Mandak she's pregnant for them and start collecting child support. These are some unintended consequences. I had on the last day of session. We had a Bill come up on child support. By by one of one Representative on I got up, and I asked the question, I said, I see the Bill covers children born already. Where's the fetus in this child? Support. Anything we go doing going forward needs to include since you of making this a law. This should always include the fetus, if you're going to consider that fetus now a human being and you're taking away the right of women to make their own choices. Limited. You the biggest hypocrisy in laws like this? Right. Well to one if you actually believe life begins at conception. Okay. Then why do a six week Bill anyway? All right. Go ahead to propose a Bill that says abortion should be completely illegal and let it stand at that. And let's vote on it. They won't do that. Because they play politics. The other part of it. Is the fact that one child is born right? We say that child is one day. Oh, yes. Life begins at conception. One of the child is born their child should be nine months. That's correct. That's how this works. But they would never do that. Because once again, this is only a political move. It's completely political. We we are in a place where there are thousands of children in the foster care system. And I'm serious about this. If you care about life, then these children babies that have been in the foster care kids. Eighteen months is when they're supposed to be coming out. They're still in their Fryers old come on. And you're you're trying to tell me you care about shield if you care about children you fight for the ones that aren't hero ready. There's also statistic that black women are dying three times the maternal mortality rate for black woman is three times as much as white women. These are moms that are trying to have their own their babies, they're not trying to get rid of them. But they're dying because maybe inadequate health care. You know, just the stress of being sometime a black woman in the society puts that undue burden. On your your whole physical thing as when you're pregnant you're supposed to be taking good care of yourself, making sure that you're eat improperly getting enough rest that is not happening for all these women and they're dying given birth. And and you're saying to me. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I care so much about the fetus inside your stomach. But yet when the child is born into a woman doesn't have the resources, and then comes to the government and say can I get some snaps. Some some some some some money to be able to have my you look at her like she's government misuse yet. That's what they claim. Okay. What's interesting is that the premise full Republicans voting for the heartbe Bill was out of religious conviction. Correct. Now, here's my question to conservatives because we have many of them listening. Now, if we are in the business of passing laws based on religious convictions. I need you to make fornication illegal and need you to make Daltry illegal and need you to make lying to regular folk. Illegal. I need you to make all of these things illegal. I need you to make coveting your neighbors. Whatever illegal. I need all of this to now be against the law in the United States of America. Let's go ahead and truly reflect the accuracy that you want to bring to the country. And we know they're lawmakers have lives and girlfriend. Right. All right. So beyond the heartbe Bill, which by the way, I believe we'll get struck down. The ACLU has already promised to take this Bill to its natural conclusion of the stays by Mississippi, Texas, Alabama, they've had verges of this Bill. It will likely get shot down in court. But if unfortunate we have to go through this process was another Bill that was a troublesome deal for you. The monument Bill in disguise. It was there's we already have vandalism laws on the book, the the monument Bill, basically says you cannot you know, destruc- or vandalize that will strengthen the states of forty and take a lot of it away. All of it away from them Balaji. Right. Yes. Yes. And that's another problem. But it also is a issue of history. Right. The confederacy was actually a trees enough, right? Why why not hell we celebrated those that committed to read it? I just I don't know. And the other part is you're asking African American descendants a slave to pay for monuments that basically similize the atrocities done to their people. That's it that see to me that should resolve the entire debate. The fact that you're asking black people to fund symbols of their own oppression. That is insane. That is crazy. I know this would not even be a conversation with white, folks. Like just think about why people have the conversation about paying their tax dollars to fund symbols of their oppression. Yeah. It wouldn't happen. They've been happen. But that's the sheer disrespect, and I actually got up on a question doing the Bill presentation and ask the speaker, and my my question was do African Americans pay taxes. He said, yes, I said so that would mean that basically they're paying for their ancestors atrocity and hesitate he said, well, if they're paying taxes and some public land, then I guess that would be true you have to mitt because you created a linear logic for him. Right. What else we had? I know we had takeover Bill. I predicted that it would not pay. Because of the amendments added at the last moment and the clock was running out. So that did not pass it. It definitely will be back on we again this legislative session. We spent most of our time trying to stop back bills. Sometimes played defense the whole whole time. And you know, we knew this was come in. We knew that this was really power grab the legislator presented the Bill said. There was nothing broke in the airport is good. The April is making money. Even the speaker. Even the speaker of the house a Republican win on CBS. What is it's new the said, I don't see any evidence that the city of Atlanta cannot manage the apple he said that on record. Yeah. I'm what the legislator said what just in case? Just really, right. You want to think about that? Active. It really crazy. We know that that's that's truly a racial. I'm Bill because of the fact that the city of Atlanta is got this beautiful. My cause of of African descendants making progress and doing good things, and I would. You know to have a Bill that would try to destroy. But we've seen this in history. Ready, right? You know, what is it the local Oklahoma, Tulsa, Tulsa, also where they try to destroy mega money. Yeah. And why wouldn't you want everybody to do? Well, that's the idea of this country. This is about everybody finding a like everybody came here, unless you're native you are your immigrant to this country and everybody came here for opportunity. Why would you wanna stop somebody else having opportunity? We'll say we got more of the other side Representative Donald MacLeod district one zero five state of Georgia.

And so in my opinion, the clock is ticking on us to get some real intelligence, and and learn how to be longer lived species. So we round the clock. Would you end up with bilateral symmetry?

I get intrigued by some of the the sensory modalities that are not as ubiquitous. Syncing the polarization of light as as Bs do syncing magnetic fields.

British Colonel Donald MacLeod began marching sixteen hundred loyalists from cross creek North Carolina towards the coast where they were supposed to rendezvous with other loyalists and Redcoats at Brunswick North Carolina when commander Caswell and the patriots arrived at Moore's creek bridge. Head of the British loyalist Caswell positioned his troops in the woods on either side of the bridge awaiting the British with cannons and muskets at the ready. The British learned of the patriots troops at Moore's creek in advance but expecting only a small force decided to advance across the bridge to attack shouting King, George and broad swords.

It's armed American time. Let's do it friend all of us here at frontlines of freedom. Want our listeners to get trained and armed in that order, we fully support the right to keep embarrassed for all law abiding families. And we encourage you to find out about the laws governing use of deadly force in your state and follow them to the letter. And of course, don't forget to follow the rules of safety and common sense. Whenever you're carrying a firearm to protect the ones you love. What's the story? This week Colonel California has its share of armed citizens who believe in exercising. The second amendment rights in a recent incident in San Diego a homeowner and his family were sound asleep. When the sound of a break in woke him up at three AM glancing outside he witnessed an intruder grab a rock from a nearby flowerbed headed for the front door fearful for his family's safety the homeowner armed himself and headed for the front door as well warning that he was armed and ordering the would be attacker to leave the premises. However, the other man continue to yell bang on the door and shattered a glass panel faced with no alternative the homeowner fired hit the culprit in the shoulder before he ran off police later found the suspect and charged him on multiple counts. Thanks colonel. According the FBI crime statistics, most home invasions occurred between the hours of ten AM and two PM. Here's the rationale behind that most home invaders do not want to meet up with the homeowner. They simply want to smash into the house steal what they can. And then get out as quickly as possible to add to that. There was a study done in federal prison where home invaders were asked this question. What are you most afraid of while breaking into someone's home? The overwhelming answer was this meeting a homeowner with a gun, and that makes good sense after all Saint people people in the right mind. Definitely do not want to die at the hands of a frightened or angry homeowner protecting his family, they get that. And they understand that. However, what does it mean when someone goes out of their way to? To break into your home at a time. When they absolutely no the residents are there. It means a lot of things one they are not afraid of you. They may not even be afraid of dying. This means you cannot deter them from coming in in short. It means you'll have to use deadly force to drive them away. Without that, you can't protect your family, even an anti-gun state like California understands that to the person breaking in is not currently in their right mind either. They are there to kill you or they are on drugs or alcohol or possibly mentally ill. They are in an altered state of mind and people like that lose their innovations and do things that they normally wouldn't do and three. It means you'll have to be proficient in the use of your firearm and also fluent in the laws of deadly force in your jurisdiction and you'll have to follow them to the letter. You'll also need a solid mindset with the attitude that says not on my watch not in my home in short this California man, did a great job protecting his family and frontlines of freedom.

"Six W T V to the diamonds. Direct live line. We go across the pond. It's Tom rivers. ABC news live in the London. London this morning and ISIS still a little bit of a sliver of foothold. What's the latest in Syria? This morning, Tom Joe, we thought maybe this could have been wrapped up by now. Did you say a sliver about a half of one percent of territory that the caliphate? Once held is is what they hold now. So just a very very small little area. And you've got the Kurdish fighters with the US air support going into this town of bag who's eastern Syria right by the border with Iraq. And they're going to go through they're gonna they're gonna take that town one way or another. They want one hundred percent the elimination of ISIS in certainly in Syria. But it's been going slower than they anticipated. They're they're facing things like suicide car bombs snipers booby traps, even reports of ISIS using civilians as human shields. So they're having to be a little bit meticulous and trying to get through that. But again, they're they're facing maybe a couple of hundred foreign fighters there, and it looks like, you know, the ones that we're going to run away they've done that. And maybe the restaurant is going to make a final stand. Certainly am not downplaying any of this. But this is kind of the way war goes there. I mean the booby traps. A suicide bombers if you've been in that theater. This is kind of what you expect isn't it? It is especially when you know they've been there for a period of time. So they got the tunnels, etc. Etc. And it's very very difficult. Go going from three quarter street corner. But again, as you look at the map is just a small area that's left and the Kurdish fighters are gonna you know, they're going to be in the center of that village one way or another. So, you know, watch space we'll find out when when that day comes probably within a week or so Tom rivers live in London this morning. Joining us with an update on Syria ton. There's been plenty of back and forth in this country. Specific to the president talking about pulling out troops, and maybe creating a vacuum in that. Maybe is why things have flared up is it similar kind of talk in London. Not really they've got. They've got their own problems here with Brexit. And they've had so many cutbacks. For instance, in the British defense department over the past four five years, they're they're really hurting. And they they would be in a difficult position to BUSTER say something like the large force that was required say in Gulf war one British forces. They've got their own problems with steroid-free and trying to get through this exit from Europe. So they're not really concerned at this stage, and they really don't have the assets. And they don't have the fire in the belly to do a whole lot in places like Syria right now, they, you know, probably, you know, up the military anti somewhere down the road. But right now, it's it's pretty anemic. And they got other fish to fry. I got you when you look at Syria proper reports ic- estimates, maybe ISIS fighters in the hundreds. But also, still some civilians. Is there any sense the breakdown? I mean, you you mentioned they're using civilians as human shields. Do we really know the number of people were actually fighting. Yeah. The best after and that is only an estimate a few hundred ISIS fighters less there. Interesting though, something like in that area in that area over the past week, something like twenty thousand civilians have fled. So I looks like just about anybody that could has gotten out of there. Okay. So there. Yes, there will be some civilians, but it looks like the bulk of them were some way somehow allowed to get out of there to get out of harm's way. So I it may just be in essence with the with the exception of a few civilians, just, you know, the Kurds going against these foreign ISIS fighters, and it's it's one man against one man. And it's going gonna take a little bit of time. I gotcha. Thanks for the snapshot, Tom. We appreciate it much. Tom rivers live in London this morning with ABC news here on NewsRadio six ten WTVN.

She made sure other elected officials were held accountable. And this is how you do. This is how the game of politics is actually one when regular folk. When everyday people. Decide to engage. In the political narrative, and they hold politicians accountable. And they see things they don't like they see things not changing. Well, data side.

I have done a with me now Representative how are you? I am. Well, thank you very much. Happy new year. Listen, I'm so immensely. Proud of you and have always been proud of you. But I saw channel eleven did. A great story about you. I said, listen, I gotta get my good friend on the program because what you have done is you have made history. Timmy, how it feels? You know, what it feels awesome? And it feels well earned. You know, I, you know, you know, that this particular district Iran for was gerrymandered Indiana fifteen so it created a challenge and Iran in two thousand sixteen right after it was gerrymandered, and I only lost two hundred twenty two votes. So all determined to you know, make a right wrong or make a wrong right by making sure that Iran again, and I committed myself the entire year twenty eight hundred to do just that I actually took off off my consultant business to to run for office. You won the election. I tell people all the time Donald there is no finality in democracy. So when when you lost you realize that was not it. There was no banality you add another opportunity, and you took it. I sure did. And you know, that that's that's important because this country is about a Representative democracy. So you have to participate in it for the work. And it means. A continual process. It just don't do it one time. I voted for the president. I'm done. You actually have they add it and you have to participate at your local level, like your city level at your county level at the state level. Of course federally, but it every single layer of government, and it requires our participation in it, it truly is I I've I've tried to get people to really understand the importance of fit, and, you know, even the vote in and I talked about, you know, people died for the vote, and it doesn't always think the ring true. But when I when I tell people look, it's about your money. At the end of the day every single toilet paper every single lust in the state house, or in the White House is based on your tax dollars stained for it. So I think everyone should try to keep everybody accountable for their money. You have obviously won the hearts of those who voted for you. What was the final outcome the count total? So so I lost. I two hundred twenty two votes in twenty sixteen but I won by over four thousand folks. That's amazing. That is amazing. Yeah. What was the difference maker in your opinion during this campaign? You know, you know, camping's are about numbers rest end of the day who's registered to vote and who you get out to vote. And so we looked at a twenty sixteen numbers in very early part of twenty seventeen and we realized that twenty one hundred people didn't vote in twenty seven in two thousand sixteen. So we set out and actually what I did in twenty seventeen was what thanks you campaign on basically did a flyer, and I went to doors, and I knocked them them. And I told him thank you for voting. Even if they didn't vote, I know that in on election passing that I you know, I came up short by two hundred and twenty two and I just wanted them to know I'm going to need them at twenty eighteen so we did after twenty seventeen and then twenty eighteen we've pretty much hit the ground running. I was I was grateful. I did not have a primary challenger because situated myself. Make sure that I try to not have anybody step up to that plate right at that moment because I really wanted to focus on over my opponent. What's gonna be right on the Republican side? But we we are team just basically Dr work and to making sure things happened. Don, I've known you for years, we've worked together on various campaigns issues all of that one thing I know about you is that you like people you love people and the difference in your campaign was direct voter contact. It is I I don't I don't see any other ways to really connect to people and really know what issues are really affected people. But have what by having direct contact? It's is it to me. It's the most important part. And yeah, I think you should like people, right? If you're going to get into business of servant people. Right. You can't go in with a disdain or not motive for, you know, basically comedy anyone else with the people that you represent Donna. I'm so immensely. Proud of you looking forward to great things from you. Tell us about your platform. What did you run on? So our primary. What's healthcare? You know, this issue that affects so many people like rand the background. So many peop- your grandson wants to wants to say something on obviously. Right now to be honest. But you know, what I think that I tried to we ran on was healthcare because on my on on my phone. In many on hospital room in the in homes that I went to looking for somebody to help them out. Yeah. Given them somebody wants hat. Hand off and they want to make sure that their health is covered. And I don't think anyone in this country can say that if their health was deteriorating. They wouldn't watch somebody caring enough with them right making it, you know, not just acceptable than most people that have money can can basically except good healthcare. But if you don't have before the ability part in the country's right? And we're not at universal healthcare yet. So, you know, the portable Care Act had a rate measure in it and expanded Medicaid, and we have not done it in the state, and it's really is our money that the federal government would give us back our money. That's right. And it makes no sense that you would just turn it away. Just because you don't like the the president to who put it in place. It's ridiculous. Donna, I want to talk to you again after you are sworn in legislative cycle starts in really just a few days. So let's talk again. Okay. We'll do. All right. Thank you down.
