"If you want this playlist go to apple music in search for E W Erickson. I've got up there and it is here here here across the state of Georgia talking about Christmas. and Ah the evidence for the faith. We know that Jesus had four brothers. James Joseph Simon Judas who we call Jude for obvious reasons he had two sisters at least many people may not realize this but based on the eyewitness accounts of Jesus Friends Jesus's family thought he was bit of a nutter actually so much for the liar lunatic or Lord framing. His family was all in for lunatic. I mean they. They wanted an intervention Just get this from mark. Mark Chapter Three starting at Verse Twenty One and and when his family heard what Jesus say heard it they went out to seizing for. They were saying he's out of his mind and then beginning verse thirty one in his mother and his brothers came and standing eating outside they sent to him and called him and a crowd was sitting around him and they said to him. Your mother and your brothers are outside seeking you answered them. Who are my mother and my brother? Persson looking about at those who sat around him he said here are my mother and my brothers for whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother. I mean this was an the intervention that they wanted to seizing. They thought he was a nut. So the most extraordinary thing is that Jesus mother. Mary participated in this. This is a woman who Luke tells us the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and said he will be great. And we'll be called the son of the most. I hi this is this is crazy I mean. We have the entire song appraised from Mary that she she knew that she was going to be the Holy Spirit would conceive in her. I it just. It's it's staggering to me that. Mary participated in an intervention Vincentian of her son with her children. or at least Jesus's first cousins. I mean we clearly clearly. Mary knew he was he was of God me John Chapter Two verses one through five. This is an eyewitness account by John. Jesus's Fred Fred. We know it's an eyewitness account. On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee and the mother of Jesus was there Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples when the wine in ran out the mother of Jesus said to him they have no wine. Jesus said to her woman. What does this have to do with me? My hour is not yet come and his mother said deserves do whatever he tells you she. She knew her son could do somethin'. She knew why and yet. Here's Mary trying to stage. An intervention. The Caesium ankerium home note that Mary was struck with Jesus the whole way through his life is she knew it stuck with her and note that Mary then stuck with Jesus his whole life unlike his brothers and sisters no doubt coming to a richer and richer understanding of her sewn over time Mary stuck with him. She'd never gave up on him. John tells us Jesus's brothers gave up on him John Seven again. This is an eyewitness account. We know this from POLYCARP. We know this from Ignatius we know from historic we know extra biblical sources. John was Jesus best friend. We know this from the Bible while we no. He's an eyewitness to this and he writes the juice. Feast of booths was at hand so his brother said to him. Leave here and go to Judea. They your disciples also may see the works. You're doing for no one works in secret if he seeks to be known openly. If you do these things show yourself to the world for not. Even his brothers believed in him. This is Jesus's brothers confronting him telling they they really think if he's such a big deal if he really thinks he's the Messiah get the to the big city show. Everybody needs to tell the world which he can't do in a small town in really they just want him gone and by the way. It's pretty implicit here. They think he's going to get himself killed if he does this. The brothers who had to try to stage an intervention had given up. They wanted their brother gone in. Jesus goes he. Winds up. Being arrested tried tortured crucified. The most striking thing here is as brothers. Didn't didn't even show up at his execution. Jesus's mothers there. The mother who with the brothers had tried to save Jesus from himself stage intervention. The mother who the Angel Gabriel real head appear to a told her she would be with child conceived by the Holy Spirit Brothers never showed up from Matthew Twenty seven there were also many women. They're looking on from a distance instance who had followed Jesus from Galilee ministering to them among those Mary Magdalene and Mary the Mother of James and Joseph and the mother of the sons of Zubeidi from Mark Fifteen there was also there were women looking on from a distance. Among whom were Mary Magdalene Mary. The mother of James The younger and of Joseph and Sally when he was in Galilee they followed him in Minister Mr to him and there were also many other women who came up from Luke twenty three all of his acquaintances in the women who followed him from Galilee stood at a distance watching and then from John Nineteen standing by the cross of Jesus where his mother and his mother sister Mary. The mother Clovis and Mary Magdalene when Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loves standing nearby so does mother woman behold your son then he said to the disciple behold your mother and from that hour the disciple to greatest on this John Writing about what happened to him. This is an eyewitness account from John. We learned that Jesus dying on the Cross told John he had to look after Mary. Why why because Jesus is brothers? Were there. They tried to stage an intervention. They told him to get out of town. They didn't show up for the execution. Mary was there with no immediate family. John The Apostle Sola taking her into her own home and and Jesus died. And if that's all there was we would say this is nonsense. The family would been right but something clearly happened. That's not the end of the story from acts one fourteen. We learned that all these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer together with the a women and Mary the mother of Jesus and his brothers these are of the apostles. These are James. Joseph Simon and jude the family members. Who tried to seizing the stage? It intervene intervention. The people thought he was nuts. They is family. Knew Him. Best Worrisome Center or jerk. They wouldn't have made up the early church. They were all going to get killed. Look James James became a leader in the early church. Paul called him a pillar of the church coach. Paul traveled to Jerusalem after conversion to meet with the apostles and with James James the brother Jesus Not James The Apostle James the brother of Jesus James The just came to be referred to as Campbell knees because he was on his knees praying so much in fact Paul writing and Galatian says when they saw that I had been entrusted with the Gospel to the uncircumcised. Circumcise that is the gentiles. Just as Peter had been entrusted to the Gospel to the Jews he'd work through Peter for his Apostolic Ministry to the circumcised worked also threw me for mind to the gentiles and James and John who seemed to be pillars perceive. That grace had been given to me they gave the right hand of fellowship to Barnabus in me that we should go to the gentiles and from acts fifteen. All these simply fell salad. They listened to Barbara's and Paul as they related with signs and wonders got done and through them after they finish. Speaking James spoke. He was a member of the church. Paul saw James and Peter Paul. The Guy Jesus had told to go preach to the gentiles went to find Jesus's he's assist brother who had rejected Jesus in life in eight hundred sixty to early church history notes that the local Jews of Jerusalem went to James. They had a problem. They had executed Jesus and yet the city was growing and believers believing that Jesus was the risen Lord and so they they went to James. This is documented in history. They went to the brother of Jesus James the brother of Jesus and said he could testify that Jesus was not God. I mean after all he wouldn't even show up at the execution he wanted nothing to do with the guy. But here's this guy who thought his brother was. The nutter is now a part of the church. He had become so invested in the idea that Jesus was the risen Lord when he writes his book of the Bible James's book of the Bible. He calls himself a serving. Doesn't even identify himself as the brother of Jesus and he tells the Jews he was wrong he was wrong. Jesus was in fact the living living God. Jesus wasn't back the Messiah so enraged. We're we're the the local leaders. They carried to the top of the temple and they threw him off it. He his witnesses say he was proclaiming his brother the risen Lord the whole time and when he didn't die they stoning to death and beating with clubs until he died the whole to battered bruised. Broken bleeding going to die proclaiming. His brother Jesus was lowered the very man he thought was a nutter. He went to his death proclaiming. And as God Jesus Brothers Simon took James's place along the way Jesus brother Jude became a church leader. He was eventually killed by by the Roman state and a purge of Christians a counter mixes whether it was his children or grandchildren. It appears his grandchildren. Were called before the emperor. They testified that their relative Jesus had been talked. uh-huh talking about a return at the last day not an imminent takeover of the empire that he was King in heaven and they were spared for time and then I believe it was Trajan decided to exterminate the remains of Jesus family. They literally the Romans executed every living member of Jesus's earthly family. They all died proclaiming. Jesus is this was alive. Something had to have happened. Paul wrote to the Corinthians that Jesus had appeared to safest into the twelve then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time. Most most of whom are still alive. Hint hint there were eye witnesses at the time. Though summit fall asleep then he appeared to James then to all the apostles. It's really silly to say Jesus didn't exist. There is ample eyewitness historic record. There's more documentary evidence that Jesus existed then socrates eleven of the twelve who followed Jesus were willing to go to the ends of the Earth to proclaim him God. Thomas went all the way to southern India. The Portuguese when they first made it to India were shocked to find Christian churches in southern India. All could trace their roots to to Thomas Thomas. Jesus's brothers became part of the church. They were executed for proclaiming him. Christ the risen Lord the Messiah the man named Jesus not only must have been a pretty spectacularly charismatic person who surrounded himself with charismatic people. All all of whom are willing to be tortured and killed a I guess they were all conman. They were all great liar so I guess because they were all willing to die for a lie the people who knew him were willing to die for. You know my sister's would never call me the risen. Lord they know me. There's no way they would be executed telling me to say in people that I was God odd and yet Jesus actual brothers or first cousins if you're that they were willing to be executed to keep up a lye no and we know this from history for extra biblical history from the same history that tells us Julius Caesar existed from the same history that tells us Niro existed from the same history tells us socrates existed existed. The same history tells us these people rejected him in life and after death said actually he rose again from the dead and really is the Messiah. Clearly something had to happen. Believe by faith in Christ as Lord but understand. Your faith has a foundation foundation of historic evidence behind it. Welcome back zero Erickson here..

John Calvin John Wesley Swingley others. They agreed they interpret the references the Bible to Jesus brothers and sisters either Joseph's children from a prior marriage or his first cousins and an extended family Catholics tend to believe it's his first cousins ends in an extended family. I actually believe that They were Jesus's half brothers and sisters from Joseph and Mary's marriage in fact It's very curious that Matthew would say. Mary gave birth to her first born. Son If you look at that in the original Greek is a very clear distinction distinction there that that it suggests Mary did have other children. And so I I really do believe that Jesus had brothers and sisters. It is is not something that's GonNa keep you into heaven or not. It is not something that that Christians need to agree on. There's plenty of evidence that these early families were very close Bought Light That's what I think we need to understand. I think for purposes of this conversation that Jesus brothers and sisters were half brothers and sisters all younger than him I'm from Marian and Joseph But we at least recognized that they were very close members of his family. There are a number of passages in reference to them in the New Testament. Demint and the sense of phrasing is that these were the people who knew Jesus the best. For example mark. Six one through six describes his family this way he went away from from there and came to his hometown and his disciples followed him and on the Sabbath. He began to teach in the synagogue in many. Who heard him were astonished? Saying where did this man get these things. What is the wisdom given to him how our such mighty works done by his hand is not this the carpenter the son of Mary and the brother of James Joseph and Jude and in Simon are not these his sisters Matthew Thirteen fifty three fifty seven Says when Jesus had finished these parables he went away from there and coming to his hometown own. He taught them in the synagogue so they were astonished and said where did this man get his wisdom. These mighty works. Is this not the carpenter. Son is not as mother called Mary or these not his brothers. James Joseph Simon and jude or these not a sisters me and he had we know four brothers James Joseph Simon Judas actually the Bible says we call him jude you for obvious reasons And he had at least two sisters the tradition of the time In that day and age was the oldest son typically received his grandfather's author's name we know that Josephus Father's name was Jacob that Matthew One sixteen tells us some Jacob the father of Joseph the mother of Mary of whom Jesus was born who was called the Christ. James James is the Greek derivative of Jacob. So James would be Joseph's oldest natural son and he would be named for Joseph's father by the traditions of the day and in so we can conclude James Either Joseph's oldest natural son or the oldest son Joseph's own brother if the second son was indeed Joseph Son it would make some MHM since the first son is named after grandfather. The second son is named after Joseph that also explains why there are so many Jacobs James and Judas in the Bible Jacob in particular was was very popular given genesis so Jesus and a family he had brothers and sisters or at least cousins I think family and he had a father unearthly father named Joseph and we should explore all this when we come back..

"Now I got help you if you do. I tell people all the time I I do have a face radio but I have a voice for print but here I am nonetheless nonetheless a across the state of Georgia well on radio. I'm I'm a Christian explicitly so not a good one one but I am one. Eighty eight informs my worldview. I believe there's a heaven and hell. I believe there's a last day I believe that those who are Jesus aside or on the winning team I may be an incurable pessimist. But I'm also quite an optimist because I've read how the book ends it ends with a Pale Horse Johnny cash thing and backup music I'm you know. I'm I'm on the winning team however much I'm a loser. I'm on the winning team. That's what counts and it shapes my worldview and it shapes what I do in in I see the world. Through this lens I see the the rise of for example cultural progressivism Secularism and hostility to faith. That's part of the plan. God's got a plan and my life I have gone through my life to tell you how I got here to. You hearing my voice right now. And it is all part of God's plan and I don't know what the play it is but I know I'm a part of it and I know he's got a role for me to play. He's got a role for you to play and you may not know that whether it is and you may be stuck in feeling stagnant at. You may be in God's waiting room waiting for him to act Y- you know. The Jewish people waited four hundred years in silence between their return. In Christ. We can wait. You can wait. We all need to learn a little patience. Patience doesn't hurt us but I got a plan and I got a role to play will several years ago. I I mean I talk like this on the radio in it rubs some people the wrong way I. I've had complaints from people saying he. He talks about Jesus too much on the radio. And it's who I am. I'm sorry sorry I don't try to do it often except at Christmas and Easter but sometimes it comes in depending on the news of the day but several years ago. I haven't taught this. I started started getting invited to preach at local little churches needing to fill in preacher on a Sunday asking. If I would come in. They heard me talking Jesus or culture or faith on the radio and I said no because I never been to seminary and felt bad doing it so several years ago decided to go work on my M. DIV at reformed theological seminary I'm in a PhD program Southeastern Baptist in Wake Forest. But I what I mentioned it on. Air that You you know okay folks. I'll come preach for now. Been in seminary is the number of those churches reached out and they will what Church are Eunice reformed theological whole reformed four hundred one of those. Well I think the preachers drying his hair that Sunday. I I'm I'm being flippant here but I actually am really serious. I primarily went it to seminary because I was getting asked to preach on Sundays while as a radio show host in Atlanta and these churches followed back up with me when they found out I was going to a seriously seriously academic but reformed seminary there probably not but I stayed in seminary nonetheless. I felt deeply rewarding to be able to check out of politics politics for a little while and and spend time on my faith and my favorite seminary professors from South Carolina Welshman who lives in South Carolina and. He told me one time I was filling in for rush limbaugh and he picked him up from the airport in Atlanta he flies in from South Carolina to teach at artists. And we're driving up to Marietta the campus and he says you know I got people in my church who here you on the radio and the like you and whether you believe it or not you got got a pulpit and given what the Scripture says about preachers leading people astray. You need to be here whether you believe it or not in a Oh I believe him. I do We've all got a role to play. God's got a plan for all of us and honestly I view my role in life is being on radio talking about the topics that some program directors might get mad about or or management or you. The listener might get frustrated with me on occasion. I think letting you know. There's someone out there who believes like you is important poured it because some of you can't say what I can say some of. You can't get away with what I can get away with in some of you think you're alone in secularism in society is designed around around the idea of making you feel isolated and alone and this is the history of Christianity. Frankly the it is why the Romans wanted to take scripture scripture for people you know where the word trader comes from the word traitor comes from the trap doors. The doors were early Christians in the persecutions of the Roman in pyre with trade their scripture for their life. The Romans would come say handed over your word of God and they would handed over Pay Amish to the emperor and they would would be spared and and they were called the editors they traded their scripture for their life and and could they be welcome back into the church is one of the early Fights among Christians of could these people will be forgiven in the answer ultimately was yes they need to repent but they can be forgiven and we get the word trader from it. The Romans knew they needed to take people. Scripture sure way needed to isolate people they need to make people feel they were alone and if they could make you feel alone they could probably get you to reject your faith and we see that in secularism today And not just on the issue of Christianity. We see it on a host of socially conservative issues on on society on on The alphabet gang issues the LGBTQ. I A ATP whatever the Alphabet Gang we we we see it on. These things is forcing people to censor themselves. So I view my role not just to give you the news of the day and analyze it for you and give my opinion for day and primarily. You know what my job is I believe it or not as to entertain you. Maybe I'm not being entertaining right now. My job is to entertain people on the radio. Try to give you the news in an a day. We'll we become morally relativistic this to go on both sides. Both sides have their ultras. You've got your truth. I've got my trudeau as as a Christian. I believe there's an absolute truth. His name is Jesus. And we have an obligation to seek real truth in this world. Faith and I believe that's my job and oftentimes it puts me at odds with my friends because I say you know what what the guy on. The News. Reporter really wasn't fake news. It really west her there. I heard it on some some fake news. No it's it's it's real but my job is also to let people know in addition entertaining. You're you're not alone. You believe that there was a virgin who gave birth to a child. What an absurd thing to believe in yet we do historic evidence for it? We believe this child grew up was was tortured was crucified suffered under Pontius pilot was crucified. Right died was buried descended into hell on the third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty and he will come to judge the quick and the dead we believe. Leave these things and people tell us you crazy. That's not true it's it's anti-science and it's my job to tell people you know what there are two billion billion people on planet earth who believe this. You're in the minority not us even though we don't talk about it but culture is tends to be secular and tries to get us to shut up about this stuff and so I'm very happy to be one of the people who stands up and says these are the things we believe in and so for the next little while I want to delve in an to the things we believe in I find it very important to do this. And my apologies to you if you were looking for raw politics today if you're looking for the headlines of the day if you're looking for detailed analysis of impeachment I'm afraid I'm not doing that today. What I'm doing is reminding people of what we I believe? And why we believe it where it comes from. What the history of it is the facts and figures of faith if you will? I think that's way more important than any of this other stuff. Even if we talk about that way more than we talk about this..

Remember people without disabilities are not normal this implies that people with disabilities or abnormal when introduced to a person with a disability it is polite to shake hands.

You're wondering Oh my goodness learning new terms sunkissed that is a person who's not white but without taking the names used by the colonists use to describe them Holy Moly okay now Jeffrey Epstein Jeffrey Epstein is the billionaire Hedge Fund manager who is friends was all sorts of fringe with Donald Trump. He's friends with Bill Clinton. He's friends with Prince Andrew of the U._k.. <hes> he's friends with other millionaires and billionaires. I tell you you know let me just let let me sum up Jeffrey Epstein this way <hes> Jeffrey Epstein is a super-rich godless person who has used his money to protect himself for years of the chickens are coming home to roost man it. It just reminds me you read the story about Jeffrey Epstein in you know some seventy-three is my favorite song and it just it's it's it's a SAF is writing about the rich God of the prosperity of the wicked he writes about this describes the prosperity of the wicked they have no struggles their bodies are healthy and strong. They're free from common human burdens. They're not plagued by human ills. Pride is their necklace they clo- themselves with violence there callous hearts from their callous hearts come iniquity. They're evil. Imaginations have no limits they scoff and speak with malice with arrogance they threaten oppression their mouths lay claim to heaven and their tongues tape position of the Earth therefore there people turn to them and drink waters and abundance they say how would God does the most. I know anything that is what the lick wicked are like always free of care they go on amassing wealth and on and on it goes and then he realizes that of course that this is the best they'll ever have it that they're destined for an eternity of suffering and misery so this if anything is a small grace from God <hes> that that they're able to thrive in this world because they really want in the next and that's Jeffrey Epstein Jeffrey Epstein Epstein has his for years surrounded himself with powerful by using his money. He's provided people according to the allegations underage girls to have their way with do sexually abuse and traffic in and federal prosecutors. <hes> James Comey's daughter is going to be the federal prosecutor prosecuting him and he will probably through the files through the seizures. It looks like he kept pictures documents. There will probably be a lot of people exposed in what what I find so atrocious at. This point of the politics is everything period in our American psyche right now is that Democrats are cheering on the fact that Republicans may be indicted. Republicans are cheering on the fact that Democrats may be adopted. We should be cheering on the fact that anyone anyone who did anything with Jeffrey ABC's indicted but we should also mourned that we live in a world where people like this are propped up in can use their power and influence to gain protection. It's very clear he used his money to be able to negotiate his way out of certain certain prosecutions or to get better deals for prosecutors. One of whom is Secretary Kosta in the trump administration appears to be one of the prosecutors who cut him a deal now people close to a cost to say the reason he did it is because they didn't have sufficient evidence he didn't think to be able. To prosecute the crimes at the time that people claimed could be prosecuted so they were able to cut a deal there had to cut a deal but this guy hopefully will take a lot of other people down with him. You can expect the media though to sensationalize ties ice to president trump because Epstein trump had a connection there were friends trump at one point commented that Epstein liked young girls and knew that was going to get him in trouble one day F seen also had close friendship with Bill Clinton Democrats are happy to throw him under the bus these days <hes> they'll make it more salacious because of the trump connection which you're probably not going to see Donald Trump get indicted for any of this stuff although the media much like with the Russians stole the election to help trump stuff. They'll do their best to make it sound like he's going to be. That's just not going to happen though but this guy himself self should be buried under.

"This is not gonna comment at largely because like letters still by eighty five to ninety percent vote democrat, but there has been a noticeable three to four point shift, particularly among black men towards the Republicans. Rick Scott in Florida when forty five percent of the Hispanic vote excluding the Cuban community, excuse me. There's some liberal right now yelling, but they're Cuban exclude Cubans Rick Scott when forty five percent of the Hispanic vote in Florida. Yeah. You gotta overwhelming number of Cubans who tend to vote Republican because Ronald Reagan still, but he got a non Cuban Hispanic voting when forty five percent Brian Kemp, one thirty eight percent in Georgia. I'm looking at all of this. And it seems to me that without President Trump on the ballot Republicans were able to persuade a good number of minority voters on cultural issues to vote for the GOP. But suburban voters so spun up about Donald Trump rejected the GOP, and it does make me wonder if there is going to be a viable third party judge. No, I don't think that a third party could win against Donald Trump in twenty twenty. It just makes me realize that Donald Trump is still fighting for control of the Republican party. And he has the majority of it. Let no one be disabused here. I'm not saying that Donald Trump's parties, not the Republican party in the Republican party is not Trump's forty it is. But he only has he has a majority of it. But there's a significant minority that wants something else. And it looks like they're prepared to fight for it. And so I do wonder if we're going to see something twenty twenty. Bob corker seems to be someone who has suggested he's looking at it. Jeff flake is definitely campaigning for it. John casick never stopped running for president. What an obnoxious I would rather flake in corker than than casick. I mean, no casick. No. Casing casick. Or what about bin sass? And I wonder if someone were to get enough traction through doing that to spin off at third party for the first time, I'm looking at data, and I'm seeing this. There is a significant minority of Republicans that no longer like the Republican party and they're looking for something else. And there is a significant portion of the Democratic Party black and Hispanic voters in the Democratic Party who feel that the rich white secular atheist. Progressives of the Democratic Party are leaving them behind. And they're all looking for a new home. And I'm wondering if someone could give them that home. And again, I'm not endorsing it. But we should we should understand what's happening here. There's a real movement. Now, there's room for the president to capture all of those people on his side if you'll do it. I'm just not sure he's willing to do what it takes to actually all of them to his side. Eric Erikson, you may not always agree with him. But you know, he's not going to spend you every day till.

"So bay county set up a process of verifying that these people were the people cast the votes, they verified the ballots were from these people they verified their ID and the Democrats want those ballots thrown out, even though these people weren't able to get a polling locations because a storm physically wiped out the polling locations in some of these people had to actually leave the state of Florida and have not been able to move back home. But in Broward County, of course, they're turning a blind. I'd everything I talked to a lot of friends down there, including Democrats in Florida. None of them think that Andrew gillum or Bill Nelson can win at this point. Democrats were holding out a very very very strong hope that Bill Nelson would. Be able to pull it off based on provisional ballots military ballots. There aren't enough military ballots to come in there. Only about three thousand of those know what is going to happen. Most likely is that the automatic recount, you should know there have been twenty seven nationwide. There have been twenty seven automatic recounts of statewide races nationwide. Since the advent of electronic voting and only three have had their outcomes affected. So not a good track record there for either Gillam or for Bill Nelson to change the vote with Guillem into Santa's if the races within a half, a percentage point there's an automatic recount if the recount then brings the race to be below a quarter of a percentage point there's a manual recount with a physical inspection of the balance. That's not going to happen there because they're right there barely on the cusp of of half a percentage point. With Scott and Nelson. There may be a physical inspection of the ballots because they are right on the cusp of a quarter percentage point gap. But even some of the worst case scenario is I've been seeing for Rick Scott, he should still have about a thousand vote margin. If things go completely Bill Nelson's way. Now, here's the kicker one of the reasons that Bill Nelson is behind as he is is because they're about ten thousand votes missing in the Senate race in Florida in Broward County because of the ballot design. Now Democrats had been speculated it was a machine error. The machines have been inspected. It's not a machine it's a ballot error the Broward County see in Georgia one of the primary. Roles of the secretary of state is to ensure uniform ballot across the state. So no matter which polling location, you go to in the state of Georgia your ballot will look the same. The only thing that'll be different of the names when you get lower races in Florida each individual county designs its own ballot. They have to be in a certain order, but each county designs it's ballot and in two thousand you'll remember the in Palm Beach county, they did a butterfly ballot. That made it look very, very bizarre. Made it very difficult to pick who you're voting for Al Gore. George W Bush in the same way in Broward County the way they designed the electric ballot. It made it look like the Senate race wasn't on the ballot. For some people depending on how you slid it in the machine floor uses different machines than Georgia. And as a result about ten thousand people didn't actually even see the Senate race on their ballot. They went straight to governor. Now, if frankly if one hundred percent of the votes went to Bill, Nelson and most of them would he would still lose. But it would be way closer than it actually has been in Florida..

"So if the Democrats take back the house of representatives, they will attempt to block the president making them, permanent, the Republicans always presumed that if they could keep the house of the Senate, they'd go back the second time and make them permanent. You had to have a whole separate congress understand it ruled because the way the financials work in the Senate. So that will be off the table completely the tax cuts will eventually go away if the Democrats take back the house. Okay. We'll we'll just pray that they don't. Well. There you go. Thanks very much. It's going to be really close. And it's not looking good for the GOP in the house, Chris in Charlotte. Welcome. Hi, Brody Denard tonight. I'm good. How are you? Hey, I wonder my my question that I have for you. You know, you know, kicking the back of your friends. Yeah. Brian hill. My question was are they re Republicans? I kind of heard a college who Carlos Baker say he doesn't know these the both of our I just have to employer by y'all got to get out and vote I like male black males success. So I'll let the democrat party has twenty twelve because I didn't have anywhere else to go. And the GOP was where I found my safe place so persona wants to say that they don't vote tomorrow there's steak so. Election. I don't have to go. So the GOP is my safety net. So I urge anyone who's contemplating not go to please go out and rob Rosen sisters who are on a ballot. Tamara Brian Kim hair handle, I'm here, Sean real who have field day because as consistently congressional person in Charlotte. The we also marketers now's starting to get up. I hope Maher. Here's turns out, Chris. I I gotta let you go there. 'cause we we got a commercial break here. But yeah. And you know, tribalism takes all forums, including he doesn't sound like me.

Hey, Eric, thanks for taking my call big fan. Thanks question for you heavily voted for k- goal in the midterms bummed that he didn't win that. But, but, you know, probably in the early on the early voting over Abrahams question for you is do you think the I'm just curious what you thought the reason for the low turnout for pumpkin early voting in north of sickly hall county. I didn't know if there's a backlash. I don't know in their people have said that into be clear that early voting in hall county in other were returns, you it's high but not statistically as high as it could be and they really need to turn out more. Will they needed to turn up more than really voted? They're all going to show up tomorrow and the storms though devote a north Georgia has turned out low and in maybe it is there's just no candidate for them up there. Now, they think I think they would be wrong. But nonetheless, that's a lot of the data shows that the campaign was able to turn out people outside of Atlanta at impressively high rates, but in north Georgia they could've done a little better than they did. And the everyone's giving good of his well people just didn't turn into the rate. Everyone else was expecting. Maybe they will let election day. You know, another troubling time for the campaign should be the number of young voters in Georgia this year under thirty voters is four times higher than it was in two thousand. Fourteen. There are a lot of these data points that are deeply troubling to outside observers who think it means that the GOP is going to have a bad night in Georgia. I still think Kim ekes out a win. I do think it's going to be incredibly close closer than we have seen. I do not think it's going to take weeks a lot of the stories. You're you're hearing about voter suppression and lawsuits and whatnot. They're legit new stories that that's not what I'm saying. What I am saying is that the Democrats have worked very hard to build these stories to try to cast doubt on the election to mobilize their voters. And so you've got to turn out tomorrow. These these stories of discrediting brand hip, it's crazy to me..

"Your cosponsor told reporters the law, quote, would require gun owners of these particular models to turn their guns in and again, my my point is this the legislation introduced was the beginning of a conversation. I absolutely certain that would were we to pass us endure. We would have a conversation about grandfathering in about whether or not people would turn them. They're Benzion whether there by backs their number of approaches to take to accomplish this goal at the fundamental responsibility. Is commonsense gun safety legislation in Georgia making sure we get dangerous. Weapons off the streets, and that responsible gun owner stand together to hold those who are irresponsible accountable, and we reduce the risk of harm to the rest of Georgia. We'll just to be clear, I'm just trying to understand. So you you don't support the actual legislation? You just support having a conversation about it. Now, what I've said is legislation in the state legislature is about starting the conversation, very pieces of legislation are introduced and come out the same way they go in. That's the process of making law. My mission in two thousand sixteen was to be part of the conversation. I believe that we have to ban assault weapons in the state of Georgia. But what I'm saying is as part of my leadership, I'm going to work across the aisle. And we're going to have a conversation about how we Akam. I I'm pretty sure that I know Howie Bill becomes a law in the state and each you introduce it into the legislature. That's not having a conversation. That's actually considering legislation and her legislation would have actually confiscated weapons from people. I mean, you'll this. This is legislating one. Oh, one is how a Bill becomes a law. You don't start a conversation by submitting legislation. You start the process of creating a low by the legislation in the process. I mean, do we need to go here? You sure this capitol building you're in Washington. Just. I'm sitting here on campus. Long journey to the capital city. It's a long long while I'm sitting income mid. That I will. But you. You just if I mean the conversations are supposed to happen before the Bill gets to Capitol Hill, according to schoolhouse rock flow. Hell introducing it is in the conversation. This was legislation to confiscate guns. It was oh and there's more from good Morning America today. I would just like to say that this this time changes garbage. And I think I would vote for anyone democrat Republican green party libertarian somebody. If they would just let us like spring forward and stay there on daylight saving time instead of going back to standard time because this this whole getting dark this early to get until I would rather my kids get up in the dark and go to school into the dark, then come home, and it'd be darkened they can't play outside. I want them outside nonetheless. Okay. Stacey Abrams on good morning. America this morning. I believe in the second amendment. I know how to shoot a gun, but I believe in responsible gun ownership, and as we've seen in recent weeks, in fact over the last few years, it is time for us to have commonsense gun safety legislation. I support the fact that the fed. Government needs to take action on immigration, but in the state of Georgia. My responsibility will be to protect all people in our state on the second amendment. You have supported legislation to call on people to turn in their assault weapons. I've supported legislation that responded to massacres across our country and said that we have to take action on a salt weapons as I said yesterday and will always say we want to introduce legislation to start the conversation, but the legislative process often leads to common results where people can work together on how achieve our goals. I'm open to any conversation that will make our community safer. But I think we have to begin with the fundamental premise that assault weapons. Do not belong on our streets. An AR fifteen is not an assault weapon. Just so, you know, and her legislation would have gone after almost all semiautomatic handguns. Not just long burrow rifles. Yeah.

"John Stewart is making news. A remember him. The the original daily show guy. He's out saying that President Trump is really taking advantage of the egos in the media that he is able to do things that others probably couldn't do because of his willingness to attack the media and play to their egos harming their egos gets them fired up. And I think he's right on this. There is new polling out that suggests that two thirds of Americans now believe that the media divides the country. In fact, a more. People believe the media divides the country than the president divides the country. I wanna go full circle last night. I get to repeat myself from last night largely because everybody was out trick or treating anyway. So you didn't hear the Don lemon tell by? But you need to hear this, Don lemon soundbite. When we talk about media polling in divisions. Listen to Don lemon talking to Chris Cuomo on CNN, I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or anyone ethnicity. But we keep thinking that the biggest threat is something else. Some Simpson people who are marching towards of order like it's imminent and the last time they did this a couple of hundred people came, and they you know, most of did get into the country. Most of tired got Tucker out before they even made it to the border. So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men. Most of them radicalized to the right? And we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban. So what do we do about that? So we gotta stop demonizing people because white guys are the real terrorists in this country. Does see you know, you'll. And like, Don lemon. I do know. None of you. Do. I Don lemon. I like Don lemon because well we've been friends for while. We we have never not enjoy each other's company. He's he's a fun guy to hang out with. We have got to be friends when I was at CNN, but he I this is just Trump derangement syndrome. And you know, you can like someone who disagree with their politics. And I'm just struggling to understand why an anchor on CNN a network that prides itself on giving Jecht of news is out saying that white men are the real terrorists we need to stop demonising people. But we need a white person travel ban insane to Chris Cuomo who's a big liberal who's just not in along sympathetically with him. This is the network that wants to claim that it is somehow less biased than the other networks that this is the network that gives you the news most accurately, the the fairest presentation of the news the news without the the political bias season spins and yet, here's an anchor on CNN demonizing white men calling them terrorists. And by the way, terrorism is a very specific word. I know it gets lost these days, but terrorism is actually very specific word. It is to use violence for political per. Purposes. Now, arguably, you can call the guy in Pennsylvania who shot up the synagogue terrorists because he intended to use this violence to change a political policy, but by and large the violence, the Don lemon sites of mum white men, you you know, why white men are the greatest perpetrators vials of this country because they're the majority you go to his lung country guests who the greatest perpetrators are there. The majority population go to a European country. You'll find the same thing go to an Asian country. You'll find the same thing. Look at it per capita, though. And it's not necessarily the case that was a cheap shot. And it undermined CNN in an undermines Don lemon's credibility at a time. The president is seeking to attack CNN and the media as enemies of the people. He's just playing into that as him viewing white men as the enemy in this country him viewing white ministers. It's not helpful to any conversation. We need to have in this country about what's going on. It is not helpful to anyone other than possibly makes him feel good unbear- himself, unburied soul and tell people this, but what agenda does it advance? None. It undermines CNN's credibility and undermined his credibility, and it just fires up the president and the president's base..

"That is if you were born in a country, you became a citizen of that country. There is a legal debate in this country over this. But you should understand that it's a very recent phenomenon. Only in the last twenty years has this really been an issue, and the predominant number of lawyers are in the belief that the fourteenth amendment gave birthright citizenship and their argument for that is that it was part of the American heritage. It was part of what our founders argued our founders argued in the American revolution that they were British citizens because of birthright citizenship they were born in a part of the British empire. Therefore, they were British citizens and win the supreme court and dread Scott said birthright citizenship doesn't apply the fourteenth amendment was designed to overrule dread. Scott therefore birthrights ship must apply. That's the argument. A nutshell it's a little more nuance than that and complex. But that's the argument nutshell. The fourteenth amendment was specifically written to address dread. Scott. Dread. Scott. It's birthright citizenship wasn't a thing. The fourteen minutes is therefore it is now you can change this through by changing the constitution. It is arguable. Congress could set some parameters on base on the language of it. But that's what you're dealing with the alternative is the blood right citizenship that we see in continental Europe and the danger. There's you have a lot of people who never actually get deported, and they have no hope of ever becoming citizens in sued the sensually, you've got a bunch of people living in your country who aren't invested in your country, and we're not even this president hasn't been able to round up all the legal aliens. So seems like it'd be very bad precedent for us to go that route we should probably want to have people who come here be invested. But you know, what all this goes away. If we just see all the border, which is what we should've done a long. Fifty five after the hour an independent candidate and naturally marijuana advocate in Vermont. Chris Erickson, she is of no relation. Thank god. She is announced in her campaign platform that one of the things she wants to do is to pardon Vermont prisoners on live television based on the recommendations of booing or cheering crowd. We've seen that movie was called gladiator. I think she's gonna change your name to Lucious or really communists and clear self impressive, Vermont if she gets elected my goodness. I'm actually kind of stunned that President Trump has thought of this the ratings would be stellar. Oh, wow. Independent candidates. It reminds me the of the libertarian candidate here in Georgia who is entire platform is hip or what have you? So here's the crazy thing. I actually think that it is a blessing that the libertarian candidate is running because if nothing else it largely ensures a check on the race going into a run off in the worst case scenario for the Republicans, and I don't actually think it's gonna go into a run-off. I actually think that keeps going to win it with over fifty percent of the vote. But there are there are there's a fringe number of people in the state one and a half percent who refuse to vote Republican or democrat, and they cast a protest vote for libertarians. And they won't show up otherwise. And that denies the Republicans a second back check. If they can't get fifty percent, the general election, not a bad thing. Con- you see own to emblem. This. Hey, we hit. We've we've.

"If not this year within two to four years because of the major Rothe Hispanic population same in Cobb County, and they would vote democrat, but they're not actually turning out at a significant rate this year, and you got a lot of Republicans were worried that what the president is done sane this. He's going to do this executive order and get rid of birthright citizenship is going to mobilize voters to go out and vote against Republicans. They have not been mobilized. The Democrats have not found a message to mobilize voters and suddenly the president has handed them one. A lot of Republican strategists this evening, very very upset about this one Republican congressman sit on TV just while ago. It was political malpractice for the prisoner. To do this. Because of what it was going to do to the Hispanic vote that was not showing up. So that you got a real problem there and Republicans are nervous. I am also aware of in several states when the president has gone into suburban areas to campaign for Republicans. The Democrats have benefited more than the Republicans. The Democrats have seen a big increase in female voters whenever the president shows up in veneers. That's why by the way is very very very smart of the campaign to get the president in middle Georgia because middle Georgia doesn't have that that female suburban base that has turned on him in the way, the Atlanta suburbs. Do and given the way media around the state plays. You're not gonna have the attention in the Atlanta verbs of the president's visit as you will middle Georgia and most of Georgia's very highly Republican witch benefits, Brian. Yup. And then you've got the vice president who doesn't drive up democratic in tag. And he's going to go into the Atlanta areas. Well as gust of Anna. That helps Brank Kim. I'm not really worried that could lose the race. There are others who are really worried about it. I'm not what I'm seeing looks good. I am concerned however about the state legislature. We're definitely Republicans are definitely going to lose seats in the state legislature. And there is the suburban mobilization that's happening among women black voters that looks very very bad. I have had friends of mine telling me that the race is going to be a blow out he's gonna win. He's going to crush her. That's not happening. I think he's going to be closer race than people expect. There are a lot of people who think it's going to go into a run-off. I I'm not there yet on thinking it's going to go into a run-off. But it may I think he would win in a run off. I think he's gonna win. But it's going to be far closer than people expected. It's gonna make people very very nervous. And you know, the truth is it has more to do with the president than it is Brian Kemp. Democrats are just so amped up to protest. Tests, the president now that gets us back to the citizenship issue. But but so now, we go back to this issue of birthright citizenship, and I get a lot of people who oppose it, and I'm kind of indifferent on the issue. The fed me, I'm citizen one way or the other. There are two ways to get citizenship. One is is blood rites citizenship and one is land rights ship or birthright citizenship, some will refer to it blood rites citizenship is your parents one or both of your parents or citizens therefore, you are a citizen. The other is birthright citizenship or land rights itizens ship is you're born on the soil of the country. Therefore, you become a citizen of that country. The civil governments the civil code societies like France and Germany and whatnot. The developed in central Europe and cut mental Europe from Roman law with blood right citizenship. It was the European was the British system actually, the English system that as their empire expanded they came up with birthright citizenship and the Americas adopted, I mean, for example, just this list of countries in the United in the western hemisphere that we're all English. Territories. You've got. Let's see Canada in there. You've got Grenada is in their Jamaica is in there the Bahamas or in there. The United States is in there, obviously, by and large these countries, Australia is a birthright citizenship, a lot of these countries that came from English common law or birthright..

"That's t a l k for you Abram borders. I wanna reiterate the story from the first hour, and and I'm I'm trying to be a lazy radio show hosted in repeating myself. But I think it's very important that you understand the dynamic. Before people try to capitalize on the story and make it a slam at Brian Kemp, the campaign they were supposed to be there supposed to the WSB TV debate on Sunday. He and Stacey Abrams. The problem is that the president has to campaign for him at five pm on Sunday. That conflicts with the logistics for the debate. So the Kip campaign tried to reschedule the debate and the Abrahams campaign refused. So both sides are saying that the other backed out of the debate. The Kemp campaign was saying they're totally willing to do the bait. But the president's visit comes first the president can't reschedule his visit and the Abrahams campaign says they have no willingness to reschedule there's debate period. So it looks like the WSB TV debate is not going to happen. That's what actually it is not that. Brian bailed on the debate. He didn't wanna debate that he's running from the debate or anything like that is as people are saying it's that the president is on a very tight schedule. The president is campaigning in Montana, Indiana, Missouri. Where else I think somewhere in Ohio a coming through Tennessee, Georgia and then on his way to Florida? He's on a very tight last minute campaign schedule the only window they could work in because he's got to get down to Florida. He's doing a rallying for two. Now, he's going back on Sunday to do a rallying different part of Florida. And they just couldn't accommodate Brian Kip couldn't accommodate the previously agree to time for the WSB debate because the president had no flexibility in his schedule. And I think that's totally understandable. And I'm sure Republicans would be taken tech Stacey Abrams of Brock Obama coming through was the same way and she had to cancel the debate. And also fair in love and politics. I guess, but that's what actually happened. He was totally willing to reschedule the debate the Abrahams camp decided they would rather attack him in claim that he's running from her than to actually try to find time to debate things are just getting silly out there. Now, let me give you an overview of where we are with the campaigning. I've told you democratic early voting is beginning to surge starting to scare Republicans last week Democrats were very nervous and this week. It's Republicans because the democratic early voting numbers in Florida, Georgia, Texas, although not significantly Texas in Indiana, Nevada in Arizona are beginning to surge significantly. It's like somebody flipped a switch and all these people are now showing up at the polls and Republicans are freaking out. And part of me wonders, I it's too monkey Villanova. Anyone is too brilliant to pull this off. But part of me is wondering if Democrats kind of set back wanted to see what Republicans had another they've monitored for a week. They said, okay. Here's what we gotta do. Let's let's get this going, and they're going to do it this week one thing to keep in mind is really bad weather planning on coming through tomorrow and Friday. So you're going to want to stick with us. Anyway for your weather in your traffic over the next forty eight hours, but it just it's. It's interesting to see the way the turnout game is playing now. Let's go see if we can turn down, the traffic and get your home. I do have to say one area where Stacey Abrams has actually been able to pull it off is in getting new voters to go vote. She's done fairly good competent job of getting a lot of newer voters out. Now. Bobby who listens to the shows earlier today? Sit me a link to than put on social media in the numbers fairly well match. Exactly what I'm seeing from other people one point six million people have voted it is. Twenty three thousand three hundred forty six non voters have voted that is people who are registered to vote, but they never actually vote. They've been mobilized a ninety three thousand three hundred eighty eight newly registered voters have voted twenty nine thousand eight hundred.

"Let's go to the phones Mike in Marietta. Welcome if I can actually click the button there somebody's going to have to fire Mike up because there you go Mike sorry, the call screening programs won't you today. How are you? I got all fired up. I was just wondering what you think about you know, the the fourteenth amendment says it all in the very first to me, it's pretty clear that. Yeah. And you're you know, and you're also a. Of the state you reside in. So I mean, if you're illegally here, you're obviously not under jurisdiction of anywhere except for you came from. Well, so the history the line, and let me read this my I hide my buddy. Casey who says I need read this amendment all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the United States and state wherein. They reside no stage show maker enforc- law. So now, according to the historic perspective here. What this line is in subject to the jurisdiction thereof in the congressional record of it is according to the members of congress at the time this applies to people with diplomatic immunity ambassadors and whatnot because they weren't subject to the jurisdiction thereof. The the company. The common law understanding from Britain is that if you were born in the British empire, you were subject to the jurisdiction of the British empire. So the only application exception there was if you were an ambassador, and you're in embassador to Great Britain or in the British empire and were family was byu had a child born while you were there. I mean extend so what you're what the list is saying, then if the Vikings came over and said, but on the van, you know there and draft the baby the baby's, you know, he's good go. I mean, you know, an invading. Like we have on the way here. Kind of scary. Well, yell though. Thank god. They're not coming armed. Yeah. That that that's the that. That helps tremendously. Reporting later today that this latest group is armed. I heard that on there'd There'd be. be. No, they're not. Now, there is a small group at the border between Guatemala, and Mexico that is having issues, and they're not able to get into Mexico, and is they're not able to get into Mexico. They can't make it here. They have sealed those people out. It was a smaller group they were violent. They're in no way, shape or form getting here. It is the large group though, they are not armed. I have seen media reports on some of the fringy website to their arm, but they're not even FOX's going down. And check them out. They're not armed, thankfully. And I don't know that they're going to be able to cross the border anyway with the president sending troops to the border now five thousand two hundred. So let's break down this amendment all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof. What does that mean? According to the people who wrote the fourteenth amendment the subject to the jurisdiction thereof part referred to everyone except those with by then it was already an established well settled principle, diplomatic immunity. So if you're born here, and you are not part of diplomatic staff of another country, you're presumed to be subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. That's the way it has historically been red and in if you read it that way, and that's what the people who wrote. It seemed to suggest it means, then if you're bored in this country, you become an American citizen. The only exception being if you are born in your parents are in the diplomatic core of another country. So all persons board or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the United States into the state, we're in they reside. So in other words, if you're born here. You become a citizen of the United States and the state where you live. Now, historically, this was designed to undo dread. Scott. It was designed to apply to slaves. But what dread Scott did was it got rid of the English common? Launder standing of if you're bored on our land, you become one of us..

We can hope for and so we're we're quite happy Christie had to stick around for a few more pokes and prods it's afternoon. But bloodwork was good. Her skin's were good. So thank you all for the prayers. Now, let's get into the news. We've got to get to the president's executive order on citizenship. I you do need to know. A new poll has come out showing Stacey Abrams ahead of Brian Kemp by a point would still require a runoff libertarian holding steady at two percent. He hasn't budged in the polling by and large. Here's the thing. I dismissed this poll. It's a FOX five opinions avid poll. It's a good poster. But I dismissed the polling, and here's why dismiss it and don't the you should freak out about it. It was a poll conducted on a Sunday and Monday, it is very hard to get six hundred fifty plus likely voters on a Sunday in a Monday, unless you're doing a robo poll the polling hasn't specified from what I've seen. That's my guess. And you're talking about the Sunday after the university of Georgia beat the university of Florida in Jacksonville. So half of Georgia wasn't even home. They were driving back from Jacksonville to hung over to answer the phone. So you're not getting a Representative sample, even though the pollsters. Tried to get a Representative sample. You never get a good sample of conservatives on a Sunday, you may get Republicans. But you don't necessarily get conservatives in that skews the numbers the reason being is because Republicans who are more to the right into be in church on Sunday or with family. Watching sporting activities. What have you they're not answering pollsters on a Sunday? So you're sampling get skewed the fact that you did a poll on a Sunday Monday that had Stacey Abrams only one point ahead of Brian. Kemp suggests Brian Kip is actually ahead. That's actually good news for Brian. Yep. I will tell you. There is data suggesting Democrats are seeing a surge of early voting. This is not good news for the Republicans Republicans had been doing very well in Georgia. And it looks like they're starting to fall behind in early voting. My suspicion is that Republicans have been hearing all this news about Republicans training hidden early voting in decided they were needed. And in fact, now what we're seeing is Democrats are surging in early voting in a lot of areas in the state. There's early voting on Sundays the numbers I have seen from Sunday early voting in Georgia is that it was basically a nine to one democratic advantage, which is obscene. Nine to one democratic advantage on Sunday early voting in Georgia. That is totally obscene. I have long said Sunday early voting is a bad idea because you're forcing pollsters to work. On Sundays, many of them, do volunteer to begin with it. Just I I'm terribly opposed to it. I think even the people who are voting or running the polls need a day off. It is not because it skews democratic but it does. And in this case nine to one democrat. I am telling you guys the Democrats in Georgia are looking at the governor's race in thinking, it is very winnable. And the daytime C N is saying it can be very very close Republicans Iran out of the gate. A look like they were dominating early voting, which they don't often do. And now they're starting it looks like to take it for granted. And the Democrats are coming on strong here at the end of voting. We've got a week to go from today at six o'clock tonight. Jeff Duncan is going to join me. He is running for Lieutenant governor enjoy. We will talk to him about the campaign. We gotta get you the president and the executive order on citizenship the phone number. I guess I should tell you four zero four eight seven two zero seven five zero one eight hundred WSB talk..

"There have been allegations. That has happened. It hasn't happened. He's been very good secretary of state, and what the Abrahams campaign did is. They decided to attack him on that which I think it's fair to say that the Republicans really didn't see coming. Her voter suppression. Her throwing people off the vote throwing people at the ballot, etc. Etc. Or not off the ballot. But off the voter rolls. The pending voter issue the voting machine issue on and on and on calling into question. His competences secretary of state when he's actually been a very good secretary state. It was an interesting move and the national pundits who look at. This seem to think it has helped her. I'm just not sure that it actually has. And by the way, the the overwhelming consensus of people in the green room is that at best she's going to be able to get into a runoff. But that she still can't win. But we'll see depends on on voter turnout. Okay. I wanna play this exchange between Chuck Todd in me. And is relevant to the news over the shooting and people losing their minds.

Who believe he should never have had me on meet the press. Listen to this is that the purchase stuff visit to educate Americans fax. I think we all have an obligation here. I mean, just let me address conservatives for minute to last week. You had a lot of people pushing the maybe this bomber was Limbaugh was pushing it a lot of people who are pushing this near now, we know the facts, we know the facts, and yet there are still people pushing this. I got to tell you that from my perspective when we know all the facts about the guy last week, and you're still pushing the Sterry you're at war with the truth. And if you're conservative is at war with Ruth, you're not really being conservative. Rush Limbaugh was questioning the stickers on the van across the board. We saw. Conservatives doing this. Now, we know the facts the question is do they continue? The problem is in the situation. We have a lot of people who longer trust the media. They don't trust institutions. They don't trust their neighbor. We've gone inward. Unfortunately, I do think it's going to be an external threat that brings us together. There's nothing left of this country that unifies as a whole we all have different media outlets. We ever social media outlets. We have people we engage within. They're not our next door. Neighbor, any more? Nobody has a sense of community eleven people dying thought the tipping point on. Sadly, what you guys tonkin's last year of mass assassination attempt on Republicans. And yes that has progressive outraged and their outrage because they thought Chuck Todd should have yelled at me more for things. I have said that the left doesn't like or that he should have forced me to condemn my friend. Rush Limbaugh, which I was I was not gonna convertible. He looked at the incident last week. We. Saw differently. And we didn't know the facts this. I'm now, we know the facts. It's just it's a stunning to see people go out of their way to decide they can decide who should and should not be on TV, and they should be able to regulate the other side.
