"Listen let let's say in a worst case scenario that the electoral college doesn't flip. That did electoral college. Votes for joe biden. Is the president going to launch this military. Who i keep hearing about on. Msnbc to never leave office. I this is the most absurd thing. I think i've ever heard on television right. The president's been pretty clear that if this thing is free and fair then you know everything's gonna be okay and the only way you know it's free and fair is to go through this process remember. Al gore spent a month and a half going over this florida recount. That was one location in one state. We've got multiple states now with instances of people signing sworn affidavits under the penalty of perjury saying their bosses at the post office. Told them to backdate ballots so they could be counted in the final tabulation. Even though they came in after election day you have sworn affidavits people saying i saw a truck pull up and drop a lot of ballots off the middle of. I mean these are serious accusations if they turn out not to be true then they're just not true and that's fine we can. We can move on with our lives but if they are and the media continue to ignore them. I think that further shows how they have just done a disservice to the american people so last four years and they're doubling down on their ridiculous behavior not to cover anything that would be antithetical to their own desires of socialist utopia somehow in this country that joe biden is push along With full force. As i said the other day it's ridiculous to see a media that the president should have conceded the day after the election. That still quite happy with stacey. Abrams still not conceding well. She is the daily elected governor abrahams to you that that's true that explains all the voting irregularities people are trying to find a george listen man. It's always good to talk to your best of luck to you out there. Thanks so much. Bye-bye absolately You know to his point here. I think he and i disagree on some of the stuff. I the due process claim in pennsylvania. I think is legitimate. One that they're pursuing the secretary of state's office here says for example the ninety five thousand eight hundred one votes. The trump team is claiming our vote for joe biden and no one else's mathematically impossible there right The reason we know this is because there only forty five thousand vote difference between Votes cast in the presidential and the senate race..

It was a whirlwind trip to Washington. Glad to be back. We gotta move on speaking, by the way, speaking of Gimson whatnot. The Confucius institutes wasn't gonna talk about this. But that just got a text from buddy of mine reminding me about the story. So there are Confucius institutes in the state of Georgia. I just did a very quick Google. Search looks like Georgia state has won Imrie has one Augusta has one Kennesaw state has one savannah state has won was lean college has one. Several others have them. It looks like there are some public schools as well. The US Senate. It's a bipartisan report has released a a really really bad report on Confucius institutes, essentially say they either need to be reformed or shutdown in US schools. If you have if you have a son or daughter who's a student participated in a Confucius institute program, you need to be aware that the committee on homeland security in the United States, the the Senate permanent subcommittee for investigations are really really really upset about this. So the the Senate permanent subcommittee on investigations of the committee on homeland security governmental affairs has released. This report calling for stringent controls to be placed on learning centers run by the Confucius instituted operates it over one hundred US universities. It receives funding from. The Chinese communist ministry of education. The Senate on a bipartisan basis says if the Confucius institutes cannot be overhauled they need to be closed. Now, what's the heart of this? They provide Chinese language and cultural teaching resources and services worldwide. They contribute to the development of multiculturalism building a harmonious world. That's what they say. The Confucius institute. However, here's what the Senate investigation shows, the Chinese government approves all teachers, Vincent speaker, some US schools contractually agreed that both Chinese and US laws will apply as one use a school administrator explained to the subcommittee when something is funded by the Chinese government. You know, what you're going to get the ninety three page review claims the centers are used as propaganda tools aimed at attempting to change the impression in the United States. And around the world that China is an economic insecurity threat that Confucius institutes operate with little to no transparency. And suggest that without full transparency regarding how the Confucius institutes operate in full reciprocity for you as cultural outreach efforts on college campuses. China Confucius institutes should not continue in the United States. Now, the committee also accused the schools of covering up their Chinese government funding. Nearly seventy percent of US schools with Confucius institute that received more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars in one year failed to properly report that information to the department of education. Very interesting three American universities have closed their Confucius institutes centers in twenty nineteen students at some other schools are pressuring administrators to cut ties at again, we've got them here. We got him at Kennesaw state. We've got the at Georgia state Emory has one Augusta university has one savannah state university has one I it's it's turned into a big deal. So keep your eye on the story. It is developing. Now, we gotta get into state legislative news here in Georgia. We got ta. None of state legislative e- information who need the governor's office has dropped a trigger law on Georgia on abortion. We'll get into that casino gambling healthcare reform the airport authority the slum Lord Protection Act, and there's a rumor about a new pretty damaging story about the speaker coming out. I do not have it confirmed. But multiple people are telling me it's coming. So casino gambling legislation has dropped this would actually be constitutional amendment. It would not be legislation authorizing gambling. It would put it to the voters and let the voters decide if they want casino gambling in the state now, I gotta tell you. I like this approach. I'm not a fan of casino gambling. I I'd says nothing I've got nothing morally wrong with gambling per se. I just think gambling time and time again is shown states that do it tend to have given up economically. Also, I think it's there's plenty of data out there for the federal government and independent studies showing that a casinos tend to bring in a host of social ills a. A bankruptcies. Go up prostitution goes up human trafficking goes up drug use goes up all these sorts of things. And I don't wanna see that happened in the state of Georgia. Nonetheless, I gotta put to the voters you can only protect the voters from themselves for so long. There will be money flooding into the state from GM and others to to legalize casinos in the state, and we'll see what happens. But, but I think, you know, this comes up every year the legislature might as well, go one if the voters agree use that and let the Republican structure of the law as opposed to waiting for ten years, maybe having a governor Abrahams or somebody democratic constituents out there who shape a bad law. I do agree with governor Kip that hundred percent of the revenue should go to funding hope, but is so many so many states have seen. They do these things they allow casinos to come in. They say all the money's gonna go to and it turns out the casinos essentially are in charge of their own accounting. So they ensure that there's never really a profit to fund these sorts of scholarships. So I don't think we're gonna see that. But that's that's. That let me talk very quickly before move onto other things about the trigger law. The Kim administration has dropped legislation that would ban most abortions in the state of Georgia if Roe v Wade is in whole or in part repealed. I don't think it's a good idea. And I'm not talking about turn here. I did tell the governor's office that that's my view. I don't think it's a good idea. I think the this does more harm than good a politically. Let me just explain it to you. My my position real quick. I'm not opposed. I love the idea of proven. He most abortions. If not all abortions, I'm very pro-life dole vote for a pro abortion candidate. But here's my problem, which her law. It doesn't actually do anything. It doesn't. It's a law. That says if x happens, then y and x probably is going to happen. I mean, there are multiple stories out today from Bloomberg CNN and others about John roberts's drift to the left. He's tried to fill the void left by Anthony Kennedy. He's not going to overturn Roe v. Wade. So what happens with a trigger law is that it doesn't actually change abortion laws in your state. But it gives progressive groups something to fundraise about look, look, look if we can't stop the Republicans in Georgia, then abortions going to be banned. So give us money. Look, look, look, we got a defeat the Republicans and take over the state legislature or abortions going to be banned. Look, look, look, we got a defeat David Purdue because otherwise he could put another conservative on this ring court and and ban abortion in Georgia. Look, look, look, we got a fundraiser. We got a fundraiser the trigger laws do nothing, but scare progressives and do nothing to actually advance the pro-life agenda in my view. Now, I understand the governor's committed to this the in the. Governor's office thinks that this is a good sign to his base. Andrew the legislature. He really is committed on this cause and God bless him for it. I'm glad to see a pro-life governor advancing pro-life legislation. I just think these laws tend to do more harm than good. They fire up progressives. They don't do anything for conservatives, and they don't say the single life. So why bother that is my view though? Now the phone number here is four zero four eight seven two zero seven five zero one eight hundred WSB talk the other piece of legislation. I wanna put on your radar, and the reason I'm running through some of this legislation is I've been gone all week. I've spent a lot of time on in this week, by the way Cohen talking about him anymore. Other than Sean Hannity. I I don't know anybody still focused on going. I mean talk about moving the new cycle quickly. The Coen story, you can tell it had no real impact on the president. Because nobody's talking about it today. In fact, the more the Democrats have dwelled on it the more. They've been pointing out. Everybody's been pointing out that Cohen really undermines the Russia collusion story because he has no knowledge of it. He apparently has knowledge of everything that. Happened in Trump world, but he didn't have knowledge of that undermines the whole Russia collusion story. We'll get we'll get to that a little bit. But I've been so focused on stuff like that. We haven't delved into local education a lot, and I've had a list of bills you needed to know about and another one is the slum Lord Protection Act. It is by Bruce Williamson by all accounts. Very nice guy. It is house. Bill three. Oh weaves. I don't know. If we've seen owns real estate. I I'm guessing that he does if he's pushing the legislation or someone is e getting him to push this legislation for for people who own slums or blighted properties. Essentially what happens is the local communities. You have blighted properties. People move away people die. No one knows who owns the house. I it goes two ways the paint falls off the grass grows the roof caves in nobody knows who owns the property. Local government step in they have building codes. They say you gotta bring your building up to snuff. You. Gotta you gotta at least mow the grass you you got to paint the building you can't let it run down. And. What HP three oh two would do would be to get rid of those local building codes codes for blooded housing, it would essentially allow the state to take this over and that that's not good. You don't want the state to take over building codes at the local level. This is this really is a state control in federalism issue. You want the government that's located closest to you to handle these sorts of things. Now, listen, you may not like a peach tree city, you may not like going through in having everything so plan and everything so pristine, and and all the sign Gelo the rows like going to Hilton Head you don't have really big signs. Everything is tucked back under the trees, everything looks the same all over the island. It's hard to find where you're going because these Alia's grow up in front of the McDonald's sign I I get that. But that should be a local issue there should be nothing. More local than than local building codes and ordinances and HP three. Oh, two would undermine all of that preempted put the state in charge of it. And I think it would be used by. Slum lords to prevent local governments from being able to clean up property. That's degrading the property values of other people if this legislation passes your property values could decline because the people next to you don't take care of their property. And there would be nothing you could do about it. So I hope that this legislation goes nowhere. I'm going to be honest with you when Jonathan last from the weekly standard.

Hello podcast listeners. This is Christiane and I just wanted to thank you for supporting our show. We're taking August to look back at some of our best interviews from the pasta, but there's something extra special. This coming your way. Starting in September, the show will be a full hour long more time for guess and more indepth reporting. Thanks for listening. Coming up. We're looking back at some of our favorite interviews this year and in this edition from Atlanta, Georgia. My conversation with the democrat who could become America's first black female governor, Stacey Abrams on what her historic candidacy means for the American South and the democratic quality. Plus my conversation with the Oscar winning actress planned the Jackson about her stellar return to Broadway and how h eighty two, she is still winning awards and not ready to hang up, her acting shoes just yet. Good evening everyone and welcome to the program. I'm Christiane Amanpour in London. The week is opened with American allies from the EU to Canada and Mexico and politicians inside the United States trying to figure out how to fight back against the Trump effect overseas, allies, figuring out how to retaliate for trade tariffs. While inside America, the Democratic Party is gearing up to fight back at the ballot box, this November, and there are some signs. The base is fired up hundreds more women, for instance, running this election cycle and the one attracting most attention is Stacey Abrams who scored a decisive victory in Georgia's governor democratic primary rallying women minorities and never before voters. And she's now on the cusp of history, potentially becoming America's first ever black woman governor. Writing Knicks chapter of Georgia's future where no one is unseen. No one is unheard and no one. She would also become judges. I have a female governor Abrahams history-making moment is remarkable, and her personal story is extraordinarily as well. Just a snippet. She has written several romance novels, and she joined me from Atlanta, MS, Abrahams, welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. So do mind me starting out by saying you the successful suspense romance novelist that you are. I'm, I'm happy people know that I write s. Lena Montgomery, but I will add that. I'm also the recent author of minority leader how to lead from outside and create real change, which was just published in April well, and that is you all the minority need in Georgia. And what would you say writing has done few as you reach this incredible moment at the you've won the primary and you facing the general in November. What if you books, whether then novels or this political memoir done for you? My romance novels really helped me think about the different lives that people lead and how important it is to tell stories you can bring people to the table and they understand why issues matter to them. And what I was able to do with minority leader is really talk about my journey to this space, but in a way that I hope is more accessible and less about me and more about how other people can own their power and find their paths leadership. So. So here you in Atlanta and you running for office in Georgia, but you didn't grow up there. I mean, a lot of your childhood was in in Gulfport, and you describe your childhood twin extent as one of genteel poverty. That's what your mom said. When you didn't have running water all, you know there was a lot of poverty, but you read and you went to the library. Tell me how you childhood shaped you. I'm the daughter of two stored Inari people who grew up in Hattiesburg Mississippi. I grew up in Gulfport, which is about an hour south. My mom was a librarian. My dad was shipyard worker, and they struggle to make ends meet. There are six of us. I'm the second of six children, and it was entirely likely that my parents could have simply said, we did what we are supposed to do. It didn't work. Let's give up hope. But instead my parents raised us to believe that education that face and that service were really going to be the recipe for us to move forward. And they told us all our lives that where we began was never going to dictate where we ended up that our economic priverty was not going to be a reason that we couldn't be successful, and I want to give that everyone else because I had two parents who may to reread made sure we had full experiences who guaranteed that all six of their kids went to college. And because of that, we grew up with a broader perspective, not only what we were capable of, but of what our responsibility was to serve others. They believe they can have the same chance. Of course, you went onto Spelman college to Yale University deputy city attorney at thirty, and you've really sort of raced up that career ladder. What would you what is your main issue? Full people? If you are elected governor in November. At the core of my mission is that I think poverty is immoral. I think it's economically inefficient, and I think that we need a leader who believes everyone should have the freedom and opportunity to thrive. That means focusing on education on economic development, economic security, and focusing on making sure that leadership works for everyone and not just the privileged. So I mean, obviously, you're doing this in a pretty Republican state and you doing this in the south of the United States where you know not to put too fine of, you know, would on it's hard to be a black woman. It's hard to be black in America today and get to where you want to get to and you'll find to become the first ever black female governor in the United States. In this your moment, do you feel that there is an opening right now? And if so, why? I think there's an opening because America and the south is changing, and it's not just the demographic changes that I think have certainly come to Georgia. And made this possible. But it's also a change in ethos, we saw November twenty sixteen that voting matters that your voice matters and that it it does indeed make different who gets elected. And so I think my opportunity is to harness that energy but also harness the urgency of this moment. Every single day we wake up to news about a new atrocity and a new quiet bigotry. And what I want folks to understand my campaign is that this is about them, it's about their voices and their opportunity to actually change the direction of the south. It's going to be hard, but it's absolutely possible. We saw the primary people turned out who had not voted before, and if we do this right with people at the core of our campaign, we will win in member. So give me the strategy because obviously we read and we, you know, we sort of observe a lot of these racist. And obviously a lot of Democrats feel that they should go off to the sort of voters who voted for Trump, try to peel them. Back or peel them away, but I think you going off to a different demographic, right? Explain us the strategy and and who the numbers are. Traditionally, there has been a tendency to spend more money on Republicans who disagreed with us then to invest in those who share our values share our beliefs. My goal is to go after democratic leaning voters and any independent thinker who wants their voice to matter and that can sounds sort of naive. But here's the reality. We know that people want their children to be educated. They want good jobs that pay well that they want government that works for everyone including expansion of Medicaid, which is something we just saw happen in Virginia and the numbers. And George say that two hundred and fifty thousand people who didn't vote in the last election to turn out and to lift of their voices. We know that we have more than a million voters who share these beliefs but have not had a candidate who was willing to invest. In their voices. And my campaign from the very beginning has been about investing in voter engagement and voter turnout because we know that's the pathway to success. So how do you convince

This week has bought a whole bunch of new polling numbers cling this one from use use Street Journal tweeted out by the president triumphantly just hours ago highlighting the eighty eight percent of his own party that still likes him something he's apparently thrilled about. We have a very high approval rating among our viewers like yourself. There's some other pulling out there. The president isn't drawing attention to new NBC news Marras number showing that as approval is underwater in three midwestern states including two. He won in two thousand sixteen that were key to victory in Michigan. State Trump won by about eleven thousand votes his approval ratings just thirty six percent in Wisconsin where he shocked a lot of people in one by over twenty two thousand votes. He's also at thirty six percent in Minnesota where he lost by nearly forty, five thousand votes is approval rating is thirty percent. Those are the type numbers that do not bode too well for Trump's party November where things stand just one hundred four days out next. We are just one hundred four days away. Now from the election and fresh off. One of the craziest primaries, the Trump era, which is saying something where Trump and Pence backed candidate Brian Kemp faced establishment favor, Casey cable in the Republican primary for Georgia. Governor Kay go, who's the current Lieutenant governor was caught on tape saying? And I quote him this primary felt like it was who had the biggest gun who had the biggest truck and who could be the craziest Brian Kemp who defined himself from the outset as politically incorrect, conservative one who just really loves his guns in driving around a big truck in case he needs to round up criminal illegals and take them home. His final private argument, the voters, Georgia was an ad titled offense. Not say merry Christmas and God bless you. I strongly support President Trump our troops in ironclad borders, and I stand for our national anthem if any of this Benji then I'm not your guy. I don't know. I feel like he wasn't actually talking to people that might be offended by that. Brian Kemp won the primary last night and he now heads into a very closely contested November election facing democrat, Stacey Abrams. She's a black progressive, whoa. And we've had her on the show. We covered her years ago actually in Georgia. And this was her final pitch to voters in the democratic primary, a fighter for expanding Medicaid. She put a stop to one fare tax hikes. I'm working families. Got Georgia moving on mass transit as governor. Abrahams will promote opportunities for families to thri to talk about these two very different approaches. The electorate, how these tactics are reflected across the upcoming midterm elections, joined by Vanessa Williams, natural, the Washington Post who's been covering the race in Georgia. And Christine and Greer associate professor political science at Fordham university. Vanessa, I'll start with you. It really was the moment where the candidates caught on tape saying it was a crazy off. Essentially. It really was a wild primary down there. Indeed, it was much more so than I think people expect it as you know, most people thought that cable as you the establishment candidate would come out on top of it did look like the endorsement from the president helped Mr. camp and we'll see what that brings in the fall. But it really was quite the quite the, the primary, even back in may when they were like a bunch of them running and somebody was running driving around in the the bus that he said he was going to deport people. So yeah, there was a there was a candidate who drove thing. They were looking for undocumented immigrants, Christina. I just thought that such a bunch. People commenting on this. When you look at the Stacey Abrams closing add democratic primary, and when you look at the closing ad for for Kemp in Georgia, just the contrast not just in what you know what the positions are, but the issue spaces they're talking about evens is talking about like four different concrete policy proposals and Kemp is like I stand for the national..

My conversation with the democrat who could become America's first black female governor, Stacey Abrams on what her historic candidacy means for the American South and the Democratic Party plus here in our London studio the French, but also bound. Now, all veep reveals his sadness and despair at the stage of Europe as in Brussels with Brexit Trump's trade war and sundering transatlantic links. Good evening everyone and welcome to the program. I'm Christiane Amanpour in London. The week has opened with American allies from the EU to Canada and Mexico and politicians inside the United States trying to figure out how to fight back against the Trump effect overseas, allies, figuring out how to retaliate for trade tariffs. While inside America, the Democratic Party is gearing up to fight back at the ballot box, this November, and there are some signs. The base is fired up. Hundreds more women, for instance, are running this election cycle, and the one attracting most attention is Stacey Abrams who scored a decisive victory in Georgia's governor democratic primary rallying women minorities and never before voters. And she's now on the cusp of history, potentially becoming America's first ever black woman governor. Next chapter of Georgia's future where no, what is unseen unheard and no one. Khushi would also become judges. I have a female governor Abrahams history-making moment is remarkable, and her personal story is extraordinarily as well. Just a snippet. She has written several romance novels, and she joins me now from Atlanta, MS, Abrahams, welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. So do mind me starting out by saying you all the successful suspense romance novelist that you are. I'm, I'm happy people know that I write s. Lena Montgomery, but I will add that. I'm also the recent author of minority leader how to lead from outside and create real change, which was published in April well, and that is you all the minority need in Georgia. And what would you say writing has done for you as you reach this incredible moment at the you've won the primary and you facing the general in November. What if you'll books whether then novels or this political. Title memoir done for you? My romance novels really helped me think about the different lives that people lead and how important it is to tell stories. So you can bring people to the table and they understand why issues matter to them. And what I was able to do with minority leader is really talk about my journey to this space, but in a way that I hope is more accessible and less about me and more about how other people can own their power and find their paths leadership. So you in Atlanta and you're running for office in Georgia, but you didn't grow up a lot of your childhood
