Someone said, well, Charlie, how do we know they didn't show up? Well, Georgia has the second most counties of any state in the country, and you can just go county by county, go to Wayne county, go to tattnall county, go to tombs county, go to Emmanuel county, their turnout was just down.

That's not to say I like that popular means the people support it. They do. And it sucks, and it is what it is, but that's why we need dictatorship. That's unironically why we need to get rid of all that. We need to take control of the media or take control of the government and force the people to believe what we believe or force into play by our rules. Force and reshape the society. That took a dark turn. Let's review who said we need a dictatorship. We need to take control of the government and force

"Gotta say, is we going to this Georgia runoff? I mean, again, I don't mean it to mock hershel walker, but clearly whatever his damage is, is permanent. I mean, he has clearly probably brain injury from football. Like, you know, CTE, whatever it is, but I mean, the fact that they would defend him as being perfectly qualified for the Senate while mocking John fetterman tells you everything you need to know about that party. And it's not just the fact that he's actually medically ignorant from whatever the cause, he's a guy that's been paying abortions or his girlfriends whose threatened one of his girlfriends with a knife. I mean, we're talking about a guy who's so far out of the mainstream and how he got more than 50 votes is amazing to me. And that's still something about the residual reality of extremists that are among us. And it's not stuff we're making up. He's spoken about his own mental illness, for instance. I mean, you're right. The fact that that would even be close, but I truly believe we're going to win that one. We're going to hold the Senate, but Doc, happy clappy day. Thanks so much.

On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO, ten 35, a congressional panel, says the Trump organization charged the Secret Service exorbitant hotel rates when agents stated its hotels while protecting the Trump family. The House oversight committee says the rates went as high as $1200 a night at those hotels. That's more than 5 times the accepted nightly rate by the federal government. The committee's report contradicts earlier claims from Eric Trump that the Secret Service was getting heavily discounted rates by staying at Trump hotels.

Herschel Walker Attends Prayer Event at Atlanta Evangelical Church
"There was a big prayer gathering of evangelical Christians at the first baptist church in Atlanta, Georgia. Her rehearsal walker was there. And the new pastor of first baptist Anna, doctor Anthony George, and let me tell you something about that church now. It had been going through some ups and downs. Pastor George takes the pulpit and all of a sudden he starts speaking truth to the culture. A lot of churches out there these days, they don't want to have anything to do with politics. They don't want to have anything to do with the culture or the school board stuff that they think that it's evil for Christians to get involved in the political and the political process. But what they're really doing is they're marginalizing a neutralizing Christians. They don't want you Christians out there. Well, pastor George is not like that. And ever since he started talking about these issues, more and more people are just literally flooding into the church house so they had this big event a couple of hundred people turn out and Herschel Walker got to share his side of the story and pastor George hopped on the program at the very last minute, and we had a great conversation. And he said, look, hershel laid it all out. The pastor says he believes Herschel Walker. And he says that he doesn't even believe there's a dilemma here. And it's interesting to start a watch. I've been watching the analysis coming out over the past 48 hours. And it looks like even the mainstream media is acknowledging in a very begrudging way that this is not a big issue. That things may not appear to be the way they are, but even if it is, it's not going to be an issue for voters in the state of Georgia. So

"None of these major midterm campaign websites are fully accessible to disabled voters by Abigail Abrams. At the height of the coronavirus pandemic, many states and politicians focused on how to help voters with disabilities safely cast ballots. But two years later, focus on supporting disabled voters is fading and a new review found that none of the campaign websites for major midterm candidates are fully accessible to blind voters. It's truly shocking, says Virginia Jacko, president and CEO of Miami lighthouse for the blind and visually impaired, which conducted the study. It just is a great concern when access to communication is denied to a certain population. Jacko and her team, all of whom were blind, reviewed the websites of 16 top midterm candidates and found that none were fully accessible to blind voters in a report shared exclusively with time. Miami lighthouse analyzed the sites from many of the country's most high profile races, including Republican doctor mehmet Oz and Democrat John fetterman in Pennsylvania. Republican hershel walker and democratic senator Ralph Warnock in Georgia and Republican Blake masters and democratic senator Mark Kelly in Arizona. None of the campaigns had websites that fully comply with the Americans with disabilities act. ADA, meaning that voters with disabilities could have a tough time learning about the candidates and engaging with their campaigns. About one in four American adults has a disability, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and at least 12 million people over the age of 40 have some vision impairment. While website accessibility can vary for people with different needs, Miami lighthouses review examined primarily whether people who are blind or have low vision would be able to use campaigns sites. The Miami lighthouse team evaluated the candidates websites using ten criteria, such as whether users can adjust the font size, whether images and links have descriptive text that screen reading software can turn into audio messages, and whether forms can be operated by keyboard commands for those who don't use a mouse. They scored each item on a scale of one to four with one, meaning the feature was not accessible, two signifying it was somewhat accessible, three meaning mostly accessible and four meaning totally accessible. Oz's campaign scored an average 2.33 out of four, putting him in second to last place among the campaign's evaluated, while fetterman scored an average of 3.0 tying with walker in Georgia and both Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidates, Democrat Josh Shapiro, and Republican Doug mastriano. Warnock, who is running to keep his Senate seat from walker, had an average score of 2.44 while in Arizona's Senate race, Kelly scored an average 3.1 compared to masters 2.7 in Georgia, Republican governor Brian Kemp, scored an average of 2.8 and Democrat Stacey Abrams, who is challenging him, came out with 3.5, the highest score of any candidate.

What do you think about Herschel? Yeah, look, he has an enormous strength, which is if there's an enormous reservoir of goodwill. And you're right. He's not been a political candidate. He's been a pro football player in a role model. Somebody who's talked about the challenges that he faced in his own life and how he found the courage to ask for help.

"Psychologically it worked. His daddy had given him a rain. It was about, I don't know. Quarter inch in diameter. And his two fingers were grown to gather on both hands like that. So he wore it on this ring on this finger. It took a lot of kidding called marines didn't wear range on this finger. So she fired all this stuff. But I was sitting around talking and talking about home, no doubt. And we made a pack shook hands that if anything happens to me, you ought to get this ring back to dad. And haste to get my ring back to ruby. We shook hands. And when I got to him that day, he was stretched out on the ground, and there was that ring. And that's a court martial defense taking anything off of the dead marine. They tell you that brush. Very forcefully. But I had made that comment. I made that pact with him and court martialed me at court martial may so I finally got the ring off. I had to spin on it in order to get it off. We had bathed for days. Dirty filthy terrible. But I got it off. Put him in my pocket, kept it with me. And after the combat I wrote to the folks and told him that I had to ring. And I would get it back to them. But I was not going to mail it for fear of somebody who would find it and take it. I'll break it. So after I got home and November 45, my wife and I drove all the way to Freud, Montana, brought up next to the Canadian border. I delivered that right. One of the most emotional periods I can have ever had in my life. But during the back where it belonged. My life completely changed the day that I received the man of honor. I'd never heard of it. I didn't know what it was, and I certainly had no idea. Wow, it was going to change my life. But I became a public figure that day. I didn't want to be, had no desire to appear before people. I was a very shy bashful, really timid individual. And yet it probably was the best thing that happened to me because being the recipient involved for the first several months, almost every night, someplace. Just absolute time, time was not my own. And I was forced to talk about just as I am now. I was forced to talk about what happened. And those moments of emotion and those moments of members that you can't forget. And I think it was a therapy for me. So many guys that I associated with in my 33 years of working for the VA, they wouldn't share anything. They wouldn't tell anybody anything. You just ate on them. They never got rid of it. And I had a brother like that that was beat up very badly in the Battle of the Bulge, and when he got home, couldn't get a thing out of him. He just wouldn't talk about it, you know? And it would have been better for him, had he shared those things, but he wouldn't do it. And my work spirits are encountered that a lot. So probably being forced to talk about it, maybe even relive some of those situations. I think it was a good therapy. I didn't suffer as much as many of the other guys did. Sir, unfortunately, our.

And we've been told that when he ties you and tells you that you must go back, you got to go back, because those were the instructions. So he did that, he tagged me and told me now you got to go back. And because of the new marines and so few of us still left and knew what the heck we were doing, I said, I'm not going to go. And he called me a few choice names and said, you got well. Those were the rules. What you got to do. So I reached up and pulled the tag off and I said, I'm not going to go, I don't have a tag on me.

Yeah. Now, I didn't have any. But one of the bugger booze is, I don't remember how I got. The other 5 flamethrowers. Because once you use up either the 5 matches in the front of it, the fire, or all the air out of the air tank, or all of the fuel out of the fuel tanks, it's a useless piece of iron.

"I've been told and I have no proof of this at all. That's something like 800 flights, one offer there to Japan. B-29s. Of course, we had a lot of fighter planes. From there, they could accompany our B-29s all the way to Japan and back to Eugene. So they had that protection. So you're the tip of the spear. You're unit. Blind crushed the airfield. We lost a tremendous number of marines because there's no protection. The only protection we had was a shell crater where they dropped the bomb or a facial artillery hit. And you could get your body into some kind of a hole and you'd get the hole would fill up with marines, which would have been told, don't do that. But survival is more important than somebody order, I guess. But we lost a lot of marines getting across the airfield. Then we hit the stream and our line of pillboxes. And they were reinforced, concrete pillboxes. They had what we call today rebar, but they were just metal. And the concrete so that a bomb hitting it wouldn't destroy it. Artillery hitting the front of it wouldn't do it. Bazookas wouldn't do it because it was so thick and so well supported by the arm rods. So in trying to take those pillboxes on the 22nd of February, why we too are losing a lot of marines because they had all the advantage of field of fire and we didn't have any except that little aperture in the front of a pillbox and.

That night there that night of the first day, we over the loudspeaker were told that we would be going in the next day. We have breakfast at 3 o'clock in the morning and get aboard Higgins boats and head out to the rendezvous area, so we did that. And the waves that day, the water was terribly rough running ten, 12 feet, waves, and so we went out and there would be a group of package boats just running in a circle. I don't know how many were in there ten, 12, or 15, and just go round and round and round and round because they couldn't go into the beach line until the beach master on shore. Gave the word to come on in. Otherwise, you wouldn't know when to go. So we never got that signal. And we rode those things all day long. Everybody got shake shake. There was a terrible day. They took us back that night and put us back on board ship because we couldn't get on the island. And then the next morning we went through the same procedure and backed the rendezvous area and just before noon, that day, the fourth division had been able to start moving around mount sure a bocce to the other shore, and that gave us enough ground that we could come in. And so we landed that day on the 21st of February. And we became the point. We became the spearhead of the group.

"You couldn't see them until it was too late. Did you wear protective gear? You mentioned all the things you couldn't carry with you if you had the flame thrower, did you have to protect coverings to make sure you didn't burn yourself? Not a bit. We weren't that smart. No, one we were training. We learned rather quickly. You do not fire into the wind, because you're going to get the result, not him. And if you fire it at body shoulder level, it doesn't go anywhere simply because of wind resistance. It burns out before it can go anywhere. That's why this gunnery sergeant came up with the idea of firing it on the ground and let it roll. Because the wind resistance wasn't there. And I don't know whether any other outfit ever did that or not. I have no idea. I've never talked to another flamethrower operator that just have an encountered one. With some other some of the other combination. And I'd like to we'll come right back on veterans chronicles. Welcome back to veterans chronicles. I'm Greg Columbus, honored to be joined today by Herschel woody Williams, Medal of Honor recipient from the Battle of Iwo Jima. And we're now at the stage of your story where we can talk about the Battle of Iwo Jima, February 1945. Take us ashore. Okay, when we boarded the ship off Guam, that's where we had lived since we had taken Guam in the previous July in August. We had a more chip. Brought out a board that had a diagram on it that outlined the looks of Iwo Jima. And that's where we first learned, where we were going, and the night of it. And but we were a reserve division to the fourth and 5th divisions. And each one of those divisions had 20,000 people in them. So we were just a backup, in case they would need us, and we were told that probably we would never get off ship. They would get us together up on the top deck. Everybody sit down and they would brief us. And of course, they would do that over and over because we had about 20,000 people on that ship. That would probably be gone. 5 days, and then not be used, didn't think they would have to have it. Because the island was only two and a half miles. Wide, and 5 miles long, and were just taking Guam that I think was 16 miles from coastline to coastline. So nobody could have imagined that it was going to take that long to take 36 days to take that little piece of rock. And we didn't have any intelligence about The Rock at all. The only thing that we apparently knew for sure is the underwater demo people from the navy had gone in and cleared the coastline where the haggis books were going to come in to make sure they weren't bombed the boat shop..

"It was a, it was a replacement center where the marines came in to this center, and then they would send them out to the various marine divisions. At that time, we had four divisions who had first second third and fourth. And they would send them out to fill in the vacancy of people who had been wounded or killed, and that was the nations. And third marine division, at that point, was on bougainville. And set us a group of us from New Caledonia to Guadalcanal. And from Guadalcanal we were supposed to go from there to New Caledonia. I mean, to bougainville to fill in the slots of wounded and killed marines there. But before they can get us all organized and shipped out, the marines on Doug and Vale security island, or they declared it secured. And they came to Guadalcanal. They had come from New Zealand to bougainville. Now they come to Guadalcanal, and we join the division there. And that's where I was selected, volunteered, if you will. I was told a long time before that date in the Marine Corps. Don't volunteer for anything. There's bad idea. But I was volunteered for frame floor demolition, specialist group. Which was just forming because we had never seen a flamethrower before. We had hadn't had them. We had a manual with it that's told us how to tear it apart and how to put it back together, but no method of how to use it. What's the procedure? How do you strap the 70 pound thing on your back and do something? So we had no manual that told us that. So we had to work that out. Describe it a little bit to how big, how long, how heavy. Okay. The unit was formed. I was a, I was a browning automatic rifle, individual in a squad. When I was selected to be a flamethrower. Operator. And they selected 6 of us from the company from C company. And assigned a gunnery sergeant to be our immediate supervisor. It was his job to train us about the flamethrower. So there was a form or an information sheet with it that said we would use what we called for a Fox first gel. It was a powder that we mixed with gasoline that turned it into a sticky gel with phosphorus in it. So that if the phosphorus hits something burning, of course, because when we went out at the end of the gun or the flamethrower set it a fire because we had a cylinder out there that lit that let the fuel. And it would be burning and if you tried to brush it off, you just spread it and made it worse. But whatever it hit, it stuck to and burned. And that was the first fuel that they recommended that we used. It's paused right there. Mister Williams, and we'll be right back on veterans chronicles. We're back on veterans chronicles, honored to be joined today by Herschel, woody Williams, Medal of Honor recipient from the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II, of course. And sir, you were just explaining the details of the flamethrower, and you were just explaining to us in the break how it was difficult to manipulate in many ways. Yes. That's true.

They first started training us how as a marine grant, how or infantry person, how do you work with tanks, they had a tank farm outside some place in California. And they sent us to that tank farm so that we could figure out how do you work with mechanized tanks. And we went through a period of that, then they put it in a regular infantry kind of a unit at camp Pendleton, and we did additional training and hiking there ten mile hikes in 20 mile hikes and all that stuff for conditioning.

And sir, thank you very much for your time today. It's good to be here. Sure is. Where were you born and raised? I was born in a little town called quiet Dell. Marin county, West Virginia. Near the city of Fairmont, West Virginia. So in the Marine Corps, my home of record was Fairmont because I've plotted and have a post office or anything else. It was a country community. And most of the people who lived there either were farm people or coal mine people. And which was your family. We were dairy farm people. Yes, we had a dairy farm from the time I was a little taught. When did you join the service? How old were you? I tried to join when I was 17. When Pearl Harbor was hit, I was in what was known in those days as the civilian conservation corps. We called it three sheets. I had joined it at 16. You could go in to seas at 16, and I had joined because I had a brother who had joined before me, and he was stationed in West Virginia at a CCC camp. And I thought I would go there where he was, because part I knew they only had one camp in the whole state, and but when I joined, I found out I was going to Morgantown, West Virginia, another camp, therefore a short time, and then everybody in that camp or about one or 260 officer or something like that. They loaded us on trains and took us all the way to Montana. So I was in the seas and Montana when Pearl Harbor was bombed. And the three seas were run by the army. They had an officer who was in charge of the camp, the head of first sergeant and the sergeant and their employees were army people. But all the rest of us were civilians. And we had a yearly contract that you could renew every year if you wanted to renew. About the day after Pearl Harbor was attacked, they called us all out, and we could get into some kind of a formation. We were not very military, but they called us out and told us that America had been bombed. And that there's going to be a war. So they offered us an opportunity that if you wanted to go direct into the army and you were over 18 years of age, which mature a man, you could, in less than go straight into the army. If you were not 18, then you'd have to have parent consent. And or if you wanted to go into some other branch of service, then you can request your release from the species for that purpose. Well, I wanted to be a marine. I've been influenced by the marine trash blues back when I was 12, 13, 14 years old..

"In the sport. Kirk show me, winning out the chip four championships, a ton of races. Matt Kenseth, you look at what he's done. I mean, two Daytona 500 southern 500 Coke 600, all star wind, cup chairmanship. I mean, it goes on and on and on. They're all really well deserving. And it's good to see. I am ecstatic from Mike Hilton. I'm a huge Mike Elton fan. Mike kelton is a leader in this sport and I am so happy that he was recognized today because he has made an unbelievable amount of contributions to this. Has been a leader for decades and still it really is Nate. So kind of give us a feel for in the room, how the discussions went, how the vote went compared to past years, maybe. So Pasteur's Marty, I would say it's been a little bit more contentious. Sometimes some arguments break out. This year, we started at 1 p.m., we were done by two 45. Wow. And I think they had another hour built into the schedule for potential discussion. I think people arrived knowing who they wanted to vote for to Jeff's point. I think kenzie was very much a clear cut first ballot Hall of Famer. He's the only cup champion on the ballot, both modern era and pioneer one of the most consistent drivers in history and also the Triple Crown winner with cocoa 600 southern 500 and the two day ten O 500 wins. So that was clear cut. And I think hershel mcgriff he finished in the top three vote gutters last year of guys who didn't get inducted. So I think even though you can look at his record and say, you know, there's not a lot there in terms of cup success and like four cup victories, hirsch mcgriff had a lot of support coming in and you know, he's the guy who raced the 1950s southern 500 was going to say the very first the very first race at Darlington Raceway. Where NASCAR will be this weekend. Hershel mcgriff drove drove his oldsmobile from Oregon where he lives to Darlington race that car at Darlington and then drove home. So a great story and a long career. Hershel is a great example of, you know, this is a NASCAR Hall of Fame. It's not a Cup Series Hall of Fame. And Herschel McGrath is a great example of someone that contributed to the sport, had tons of success, not just at the cup level. I mean, tons of tons of wins and now is an orca series. And I mean, he was the leader of that. And so he had a major impact on this sport. And it's important for people at home that don't really know. This is not just a Cup Series Hall of Fame. It is a Hall of Fame that goes throughout all the NASCAR and it's great that drivers like hirschberg can be recognized. Herschel still with us at 94 and the oldest person to ever enter a NASCAR race at 90 years old. So he's got a lot of stats out of also ran the 24 hour Le Mans twice as well. Kirk scholar dean, 46 wins with Dale Earnhardt senior as a crew chief. That's a lot of wins. Four championships and they did it in an era where they really they were able to put them back to back twice to be able to do that. And I think had he stayed on, crew chiefing, they definitely.
