MLK weekend to feature tributes, commitments to race equity

"The reverend Martin Luther King Jr. is being remembered and honored with a mix of tributes and community service events around the country. At a national action network event in Washington, MLK's son Martin Luther King the third says America has a long way to go on achieving his father's dream. Dad wanted to eradicate what he called were the triple evils of poverty, racism and violence. He says the ability is there, but not the will, President Biden, vowing to continue the fight. We have to get the votes in Congress for the John Lewis voting rights advancement act and the freedom to vote act. That legislation, languishing in Congress for two years. Must be guided by doctor king's light. I'm Julie Walker.

Dinesh D'Souza: Election Denialism Runs Rampant on the Left

"Frankly, you've been over the target. I know they've come after you with a vengeance. There's been all kinds of controversy that want to shut down anybody who dares to speak to the issue of election integrity, but they sure don't want to be reminded of how all the Democrats claimed that Donald Trump wasn't the legitimately elected president in 2016. Dinesh every last one of them. I played a Montage over and over. Hillary, John Lewis, Stephen Jimmy Carter. They all said that the 2016 election was rigged, but don't you let dinesh d'souza produce 2000 mules. We got to shut that sucker down. I mean, the Democrats said that in 2004, in the bush Carey race, they said that in 2000, it was Bush who was quote selected and not elected over Al Gore. The last time the Democrats essentially conceded an election that they lost was 1988. This would be George H. W. Bush's victory over dukakis. So election denialism runs rampant on the left. That's true. What I find a little disturbing is people like Bill Barr, who tried to kind of guff on discredit 2000 mules by saying that cell phone geo tracking is not accurate and can not pinpoint mules a mule is kind of a delivery man who's delivering these fraudulent ballots to drop boxes. You can't find them by cell phone geo tracking, even though Bill Barr was head of the Justice Department, which uses cell phone geo tracking every day. The bus cases around the country. They're using it with January 6th. They use it in many other contexts. In fact, the FBI needed cell phone geo tracking to intercept Mike lindell in the drive in hardee's. He was there if they weren't tracking his phone.

Byron York: Jan. 6 Committee Wants to Upend Our Election System

"Washington examiner chief political correspondent Byron York appeared with Larry kudlow on Fox business yesterday, pointing out that members of the January 6th committee don't care about any kind of justice regarding January 6th, they want to upend our election system. Listen, what's actually interesting. We've had new reporting just today from axios about what the ultimate goal of the January 6th committee is because a congressional investigative committee has to have a legislative purpose. They have to be doing this for a reason that relates to their job as legislators. And the new reporting is that a number of Democrats on the committee want to use the committee to push a preexisting agenda for voting rights. They want to help push the pass, the for the people act. And the John Lewis voting Bill and some even want to use it as a pre-tax to advocate eliminating the Electoral College. So we're beginning to see perhaps some of the larger purposes behind the January 6th committee. Make no mistake. There is a larger purpose. It has nothing to do with. I mean, what is the point of the January 6th committee?

‘Let Me Finish’ Kamala Harris Snaps at Savannah Guthrie During Touchy Interview

"You got to hear this exchange millions of viewers watched it on The Today Show with Savannah Guthrie and mamala Kamala. Let's talk about another comment the president made. He openly cast doubt on whether the 2022 midterm elections would be legitimate. He said it all depends. Which is astonishing to hear a president question whether our elections will be legitimate. We've heard it before, but not from this president. Is he really concerned that we may not have fair and free elections? The president has been consistent on this issue, and the issue at hand, the issue I was there last night. In the chamber of the Senate and the issue is that there are two bills, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the freedom to vote act. That have been the solution that has been offered to address the fact that around our country states have put in place laws that are purposely making it more difficult for the American people to vote. Laws which will be felt by at least 55 million Americans regardless of their party, affiliation, their race, their gender or their geographic location. Well, to the point that we have to pay it, but it's the bills were debated and they didn't have enough finish. But the specific question if you don't mind, does he think now that these bills haven't been passed that the 22 midterms won't be legitimate or fair or free? Let's not conflate issues. So what we are looking at and the topic of so much debate last night was that we, as America can not afford to allow this blatant erosion of our democracy and in particular, the right of all Americans who are eligible to vote to have access to the ballot unfettered. Madam vice president, you just cut called out by Savannah Guthrie on the top show. I mean, listen, it's getting to a point where Americans are saying, there ain't nothing we believe. I mean, we literally listen to Biden openly question the legitimacy of the midterms. We

"So here's Kamala Harris on the insurrection. And I have met with voters in Georgia. I have heard your outrage about the anti voter law here. And how many voters will likely be kept from voting. And Georgia is not alone. Across our nation, anti voter laws could make it more difficult for as many as 55 million Americans to vote. Si and as a result of failing to get through the so called John Lewis Voting Rights Act, they're thinking about nuking the filibuster. Joe Manchin was asked about doing that. Here's what he said about the filibuster. Filibuster is what we have our rules. We need some good rule changes to make the place work better, but to get rid of the filibuster doesn't make it work better. You're getting a pressure from your constituents back home on that issue. I mean, what they know about the filibuster is basically what bob bird is educated people on over the years. And the filibuster is what makes the Senate. Hopefully work when it's supposed to work.

Why Attorney Marc Elias' Loose Talk of Republican 'Disqualification' Is Dangerous

"The slimy operative has this new story out at democracy docket dot com. Just so we're clear. The chances of the filibuster being lifted for Joe Biden's whatever legislation, very low. Build back better is dead. John Lewis Voting Rights Act not going to happen. This is Mark Elias's website. He goes into great detail by saying it's important how we characterize the events of January 6th. Why? He says, quote, the term insurrection has legal consequences specifically section three of the Fourteenth Amendment, which prohibits people to run for Congress if they were engaged in an insurrection. Quote, it seems quite likely that one or more Republican members of Congress will be subject to this disqualification and it's important that we start to identify them now. Republicans will inevitably argue that enforcing the disqualification provision will harm their chances in the upcoming midterm elections. Preferably the Department of Justice would lead this effort. Nonpartisan career lawyers should evaluate not just the criminal liability of people involved in the insurrection, but constitutional disqualification of the lower civil standard of proof. Oh, so this is why they need to keep on calling it an insurrection. They're going to try to disqualify hundreds of members of Congress that stood up and tried to object to election results. A 147 Republicans Mark Elias trial ballooning, he is trying to move the overton window to say, hey, why don't we disqualify a 147 Republicans ahead of the midterms?

"Looking more broadly, there's now a conversation to try to bring this voting rights legislation forward. What are your thoughts on that? I don't think it's going to go anywhere. I hope and pray it does not go anywhere because the more water down John Lewis writes one. It still disasters. Okay. Yeah, I think it's a total disaster. It would require the Justice Department to approve states for changing their voting laws. So it says something about the Democrats that, of all their priorities, they embraced socialism. They want open borders. They want American weakness they want to downgrade the military. They want the Green New Deal. You look at all their different priorities, but their number one priority. What was the first bill they introduced? HR one. And the first bill they introduced. SB one HR one. It is what a lot of us are calling the corrupt politicians act. Their priority is power. More than anything else, the corrupt politicians act is designed to strike down every federal every state voter integrity law. That's exactly right. Strike down every photo ID law, strike down prohibitions on felons voting, strike down prohibitions on ballot harvesting. It's designed to register millions of illegal aliens to vote. It is welfare for politicians. It's billions of dollars that goes to political campaigns. The Democrats purpose is simple in this bill. It is to keep Democrats in power for the next hundred

"How there is this massive pivot that was happening in the shadows between Biden's build back better plan that was quote unquote defeated allegedly. And a replacement that has just suddenly swept into focus. Now, we wanted a great detail in a previous dialog where we think that this was all a game that they had the plan all along to try and insert a fake compromise around alleged voting rights. While the build back better Green New Deal, $3.5 trillion spending package was going to be quote unquote defeated. We said this a couple days ago and we were ahead of the curve as Schumer cannon said via Jesse Rodriguez and NBC News that this is going to happen. Joe Biden yesterday went to South Carolina. Headline from CNN. Biden pledges to keep up the fight on voting rights as Republicans block legislation. President Joe Biden on Friday pledged to keep up the fight to pass voting rights legislation that remains stalled in Congress due to the Republican opposition. Biden said, quote, I've never seen anything, like the unrelenting assault on the right to vote. Never. The president urged Congress to pass two Democrat sponsored bills. The John Lewis Voting Rights Act, which we talked about yesterday, which would create the Justice Department to become the final quote unquote approval mechanism on all voting reforms. So all the energy that we've seen towards audits towards trying to get to the bottom of elections would be stopped by the Biden Justice Department. And the freedom to vote act, which will go into detail, and of course CNN writes that the Senate Republicans have blocked both. The two bills are aimed at fighting voter suppression. Let me just stop there. This idea, this incantation of saying that somehow voters are being suppressed, that there is a voter suppression effort is total and complete

"Really would. It comes down to is a few components when you go to sell amazon. I mean first of all before he even lost his all the pre work. you know. it's getting the best possible listing built. That's going to be different and differentiate from your competitors in a couple of different ways. The first thing. I'm gonna just keep on using the xbox controller battery as my case. Study here just. Because i don't know exactly what the product is and and don't need to know anymore i don't want to have everybody know exactly what you're looking at here so when you type in amazon. Xbox controller rechargeable battery. Let's say all the results that come up on that page have a certain look and feel that say to them as the first challenge always is like how do i make my main photo jump out. In a way that gets people to click my product versus all the other things that are out there and and you've already kind of disclosed that. You're already dealing with competitor's one of which is some of eighteen pounds the other. that's chinese knockoff. Crap that someone for. Let's say three. Maybe you fall somewhere in the middle but certainly you're the first step you have to do is get someone. The price is is a factor but the main listing photos by foreign away the number one component. Like how do you get people to click your listing over all the other results and this is something that they probably wanted to solve the problem pretty quickly. they're not going to necessarily click on a bunch of different ones like once. You have the battery you just you know it's kind of when the battery and get it over with and you're not going to look at twenty different listings before you go by the battery and so getting someone to click through to your listing. That image is super important. And you're restricted quite a bit on on what you can do. You know it's got to be on the white background you can't show person surly and in a bunch of other things to be at least btls compliant and it was a highly competitive niche. You're gonna wanna be tijuana compliant because your competitors are gonna report you otherwise get. You're listening photos taken down and put you in a bind for a few days until you get that fixed so what we've done. I mean we were lucky. We have a great design team in house. They look at this and they okay. Well can i rotate the product in a certain way or use a drop shadow. Turn away or use lading in a certain way to make products. Stick out a lot of times.

How to challenge discriminatory voting laws slate described the bill as quote unquote reform. It is the clearest indication yet that house democrats are getting serious about reining and out of control supreme court at least eighteen states have an active thirty laws that restrict voting access just this year according to the brennan center for justice.

Tonight of the house passage last night with zero republican votes suggests that that could very well be the same republican count in the senate. So how do you go forward from here. Lawrence is great to be back with you and let me just say it. Wasn't that long ago when we had a republican president who signed legislation supporting expanding extending the voting rights act. It wasn't that long ago when we had republicans in the house of representatives stand with john lewis and join him in protecting precious than as he said almost sacred right to vote. But as you've indicated we're in a different house now and you know just hear you say it again. It's still shocking to believe that. Zero republicans in the house of representatives stood up in support it up protecting of the right to vote and also to to fight against discriminatory practices at the ballot box. But we're not gonna stop. Just like john lewis and so many other people of all races did not stop. Some lost their lives in the fight. We know that we're not going to stop. We're proud of the legislation that we passed last night in the name of that voting rights hero. John lewis it is headed to the senate. We expect the senate to do the right thing you know. I said a while ago that if the filibuster that antiquated procedural process stands in the way a hurt legislation particularly voting rights or civil rights than we should get rid of it. And so we'll see what happened but our expectation is not changing. Our commitment will not change. We're not going anywhere as came. Jeffrey said last night. We're not going backwards Is going to join us in the next segment to discuss. What happens when you send this bill. That's passed by the house to the senate. The y you're running statewide florida now. What is your confidence level. At this point that you will be running in a fairly run election for united states senate in the state of florida lawrence last cycle. Our governor said that florida had election process. There really should be a model for the nation. Yet as you've already indicated florida to has joined the efforts to institute discriminatory practices at the ballot box. Look i'm going to run my race. And i'm going to control the things i can control. I'm going to demonstrate that marker folk putting rights certainly not going to stand up to protect civil rights. He didn't even stand up to help the radiance in the middle of a public health pan democrat. And so we're going to run We're gonna run hard and there are people who are listening to this and they want to support candidates who will stand up for the precious right of voting than i would ask your views to visit my website.

And we're watching every day. The numbers go up. We've seen increases in the number of our children who are contracting the virus if you look at hospitalizations than debts in florida. Those numbers are startling. We need to those. Who are any elected office. Need to leave the decisions that are made regarding the response to covert nineteen and now the new delta variant up to our health officials or health professionals. We need to lead science and not politics. We've seen one time after the other where our politicians have made this the health and safety of floridians the health safety and wellbeing of our children a political issue. I certainly haven't seen a our senior senator from florida's speak out on this issue. We know that the best way the best weapon against the virus is to get vaccinated.

"Name of john lewis making good trouble. Maybe trouble rallied dot com. We've value to go there. It took quite a while for the house to pass this legislation with no republican support. Of course nevertheless it did that so now we have before the people at now. We have the john. Lewis voting rights restoration. Est- we have both of these pieces of legislation and the ball is in the senate's court now also three point. Five trillion dollar infrastructure bill has been passed is really interesting to me. That's what government is supposed to do. Know people really don't understand history. We talk about reparations. And one of the reasons for reparations is because the infrastructure programs that came after slavery after the period of enslave were exclusively for white americans. It built the white middle class but is white folk. Don't know that. I mean maybe they actually do believe maybe it happens. We don't i don't know maybe it's like they can get like actual money deposited into their bank accounts without lived in. I don't know but we do know. Is that infrastructure. Investment real wealth investment in white communities has created generational wealth within the infrastructure. Piece as jobs who. Who's get jobs who's guess people making money and lord knows is infrastructure needs to be built because if you travel around the world and see what's going on in other countries and the way they're being built my god at this this naming clued. I mean i don't even know really includes husky rail. I'm not sure but other kinds of world has to be is have all types of infrastructure events major infrastructure events are happening are taking place and are making a difference but folks republicans don't want infrastructure in this country. I mean literally don't because not as if they're just mad at the democrats are doing like you know in in some political context people want to prevent the other part of doing something. They really wanna do themselves. Trump was in office ended into it by talks about human infrastructure. Well john lewis came from a group of people in being a descendant himself of enslaved people. He spoke up now. This bill has been passed in his name. The john lewis voting rights act though the john lewis voting rights restoration act. Too big bills passed in congress just yesterday. Now what we know about this bill is that it will restore is four and five of the voting rights. Act that the supreme court knocked down at. We need now more than ever as voter suppression is raging getting worse all of these pieces of legislation around the country in in state. Legislatures are bring about a new form of voter suppression. What john lewis voting rights act with. Do see this is. Why would do a better standards. These other states are able to change all of these voting laws because there's no more section for which was the formula to determine a states level of discrimination and section five the pre-clearance requirement to review changes in states with a history of voter suppression. That the john lewis act would restore section four and section fat so in in states. That have a history. Now john roberts said that there should have been a sunset or there should be a sunset when it comes to pre-clearance so there was a new formative written in this law. You know tamale deal with that but to deal with updated newer examples of voter suppression. Because it's the game unchain. Jim crow is now james. Crowe esquire so you. You have all of these bills in these. Individual states s. y. Down ballot local and state elections are so so important. Twenty five states enacted fifty four laws to expand voting excess but eighteen states have enacted thirty laws that restrict voting access. That's what we're up against. That's that's what the battle is all about best. Would we deal with this and they are more to come there more to come so we've got to be in this fight. We've got to stay in this fight. That's why we make trouble on saturday. Saturday may trump rally dot com. We invite you to check out the website. Join us of unbc or watch online. That's what you're welcome to do but this this is this is good news so much joe mansion about it is he gonna do the right thing is is he going to see this through or is he gonna continue to interpose and nullify as dot king said in nineteen sixty three at the lincoln memorial. Where where we'll be in the very place he stood. This is affecting elections everywhere. Texas is a purple state. Texas could be straight up blue. If if there were voting protections in texas texas should be blue here's beto o'rourke on texas and again representative hosta in her colleagues did that. They forced this issue onto the public. Agenda may force the president to respond to that. We need to keep that pressure up until this thing gets fast. Because if we don't it's unfortunately going to get much worse in sexist this godawful agenda that you just described in the special session. You'll see something like that in the next special session the next regular session and we will lose the ability to these important positions albatross. So mr president we get before the people act. John lewis voting rights stassen Passed as quickly as the other thing. Too is is joe by joe. Biden is problematic because he still holding onto the filibuster. Democrats are holding onto the filibuster for fear of losing the majority so so why not. Just do a car. Why not just come up with a formula. So they ended the filibuster. They carved out the filibuster for judicial nominations. Why can't you do that for our rights. Why can't you do that for our rights. That's that would be the thing to do.

We spoke yesterday and democrats. Were stuck with moderates refusing to go along with speaker. Nancy pelosi's plan to advance these bills. How did she get this massive budget framework to move forward. We'll pull up has been seeing since june that there would be. No vote on the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill until the senate passed a separate three and a half trillion dollar partisan spending package so centrists were willing unwilling to sign onto that and they successfully lobbied to get a specific date. September twenty seventh as the official date that they will get a vote on the bipartisan bill. Regardless of what happens with that partisan bill now that is a victory for them in the sense that they were able to separate the two issues and give themselves an opportunity to you know have a test to vote on infrastructure if democrats are not able to come together on that very complicated process of writing

The texas democrats are still pushing forward holding meetings virtually instead of in person. They are spending their second week in washington with a week of events to spotlight national voting rights today ninety one year old activist dolores where to spoke with the group and this is all happening as we mark the one year anniversary of the death of the honorable john lewis who devoted his life to fighting for civil rights. The john lewis voting rights rights advancement act named in his honor last year. In the one hundred sixteenth. Congress is still awaiting re introduction in the one hundred seventeenth today and lawrence. If i just if i may just make a personal note about congressman lewis of all the time i spent with congressman lewis. The most special happened a year ago last month. As you see there my husband. And i went with him to see black lives matter plaza. We knew he was battling cancer. What we know now is that he was in the twilight of his time. With all of us it will remain one of the great honors of my life to bear witness as that great man. That great patriot looked out over something that came to symbolize a new iteration of a fight. He joined and then was a part of leading six decades earlier. And that's why it's important to remember that. The texas democrats didn't come to washington to lobby for legislative action item. Yes they want. Federal legislation to counter the bill republicans state lawmakers are trying to pass in texas but they came to their nation's capital to engage the larger fight for civil rights fight grounded in principle and therefore cannot be should not be viewed through the lens of who wins and loses the day when john lewis was beaten trying to march out of selma on his way to montgomery thousand nine hundred sixty five.

That's the john lewis their lionising to pass voting rights. That's the john. Lewis saint john lewis now of of of the patron saint of voting for the democrats. Now that's what's going on here and they continued to distort and lie about what's in the texas bill. What's in the georgia bill. What's in the florida. Bill constantly consistently. This is what they're doing. Something must be done about this situation. But it's not going to be done except they're not going to be able to get their loss passed now. We will get back into this. You know what i might as well. I wouldn't gonna start the show this way but but i might as well because while i was gone one of the reasons that people kept calling me. And y'all got a well. No i'm not gonna say that I was on vacation and everyone who knew i was on vacation for. Some reason. Wanted to keep calling me. And i'm tired of my. Y'all i don't like my. I don't like to talk on the phone. I i don't like to talk on the phone at all And as i've made friends with people over the years People want to have conversations with me and just text me please. Now the one of the things that people were lighting me up about just nonstop was. Have you seen the cross. Have you seen the tucker carlson thing. What do you think of the cross. What can i mean. I i lost and i'm i'm not exaggerating when i say more than twenty people. More than twenty people reach out to me about the tucker carlson thing. I debated how to handle it. I will give you a brief synopsis of it. And there's an issue of terminology the ballots were indisputably undeniably counted twice. But wait. Follow along with me here. Just follow along with me. The ballots the absentee ballots were indisputably counted twice. The documentation is clear. It shows the ballots. Were counted twice. What more likely than not happen to someone picked up a stack of ballots. That had been passed through the machine and thought they weren't countered in decided to spit them through again. Now you can say it was nefarious. You can say it's malfeasance but anyone who's ever paid attention to elections and fulton county georgia happens knows the real answer is these people are utterly incompetent They are so incompetent. They would be incapable of stealing an election. They could barely find their way out of a paperback. But there's a terminology issue that the people who say they were counted twice or missing and this is is really important. The ballots in they're fed through. The machine is account but that's not a tabulation every ballot. You know when you traps. Nt ballot it has a barcode on it and every single ballot has a barcode in each barcode is unique and so while. The ballots are counted twice. Meaning they've been passed through the machine twice in the machine. Read them twice. They're not tabulated twice because the machine reads the barcode when they're pass through and says oh this one's already passed through the machine. Don't tabulate it so yes in counting. Yes i've counted one ballot to balance three ballots four balanced by about six melt eighth bell as many go through the machine. The ballots were counted. The votes were not counted. That's the thing now. Let's say i'm wrong here. Let let's just say let. Let's say i'm wrong. Here's the the sleight of hand that's being pulled by by the people who gave tucker carlson the information. I wished his team reached out to me straight on this. But i of course. I was on vacation of cellphone phone service..

"Startling image to see the head of the congressional black caucus zip tied and led away by the police but it is an image that reflects a long tradition of black leaders causing good trouble to protect voting rights. In america i'm referring to yesterday when chairwoman of the congressional black cockers congresswoman joyce beatty and eight other voting rights activists were arrested at the hart senate office building. They were protesting the lack of momentum onto big voting rights bill in the senate the john lewis voting rights act and the for the people. Act today vice president. Kabila harris hosted some of those activists at a meeting at the white house to push the earn the issue further where now five days into a dramatic act of civil disobedience by the democratic members of the texas state legislature on monday fifty one democratic state representatives literally left the state to deny republican state. Legislatures the quorum that they would need to pass anti-voting legislation. The governor of texas has since said that as soon as they step foot back in the state they will be arrested. And all of this this civil disobedience all of this good trouble is somewhat cosmetically timed. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the death of the civil rights leader. The former congressman. John lewis whose acts of good trouble that helped bring around the voting rights act of nineteen sixty five. Tomorrow the official ceremony honoring louis will be the christening of the us ns. John lewis a seven hundred and forty two foot long navy ship speaker thousand. Ansi pelosi will lead a congressional delegation to san diego to participate in the christening that will honor the former congressman legacy in a less official manner proteges. John lewis like the congressman joyce beatty are calling for some more good trouble in his name on voting rights. And there will be vigils around this country from georgia to new york to north carolina to texas to honor the lead congressman into carry his torch for democracy specifically the protesters who were arrested yesterday. And the texas representatives who are holed up in dc and the americans holding vigils across the country. They are calling for voting rights legislation at the federal level without legislation at the federal level voters in republican controlled states. All across the country might be out of luck which means all eyes are on moderate swing votes senators like joe manchin who have the power to act. At any point they want to protect the right to vote by agreeing to carve out voting rights from the senate filibuster rules which would allow voting rights protections to pass with a simple majority in the senate without needing ten republicans to sign on. That's all it will take tonight. While fifty-one texas democrat. Representatives are in dc to plead with senators like mansion mentioned himself has flown to texas for a fundraiser held. By are you sitting down for this. Prominent republican donors which seems to me like just the opposite of good trouble joining us now is one of the democratic states representatives currently in dc representative jasmine. Crockett representative crockett. Thank you for being with us tonight. You are in a state that over the last fifty sixty five years. We've not often had the chance to talk to someone. And you are actually in a state of civil disobedience right now you have left your state so that you will not be arrested by the sergeant at arms as a signed by the governor of texas so you cannot be brought back to the legislature to be present and establish a quorum for for legislation. That will will pull back on the voting rights of your fellow texas citizens. Yeah that's absolutely right first of all. Thank you so much for having me and thank you so much for covering the story. It is quite disappointing that we are coming up on the year anniversary of john. Lewis someone who gave of so much of himself. For the purpose of voting rights yet Instead of honoring his legacy and his sacrifice were actually rolling back. The hands of time Back the hands of time to a time in which he felt it. Necessary to march in selma You know i. It's it's unfortunate in addition to that that you see someone like congresswoman bady who was arrested and you juxtaposed that with january sixth and the number of criminals that still have not been arrested. And then you wanna talk about lawmakers in texas and the threats. That the empty threats. Let me be clear that our governor is sending out about arresting us. It's amazing who we want to arrest in this country. We're doing everything we can to fight for democracy but we don't want to arrest those that are breaking the law that are killing people that are you know doing the things that they claim. That black lives matter. Protesters were doing that. Were actually rioting insurrectionist but we want to arrest duly elected congress persons and state representatives. Let me ask you about texas and voting. Texas is one of the hardest states in which vote. They simply. don't make something easy that we should make easy. Texas has no examples of widespread voter fraud. Texas has virtually zero examples of any voter fraud and the very things that this legislation is meant to pull back on twenty four hour voting drive thru voting helping people get to the polls. None of them are at all connected to any instances of voter fraud in texas in other words. There is no argument. That if you take away drive thru voting you take away twenty four hour. Voting fraud in texas elections will decrease now absolutely right. I mean which you're trying to apply logic right I determined that there is no logic in the legislature at least texas legislature This is all about a power grab you know. That's what people need to understand. They need to understand. The full context of what's going on texas already makes it harder than every other state to vote. We simply say we want nice things in texas to right when we look at the majority of states. Thirty six states plus dc have online voter registration. We had a number of bills that were filed this session saying hey give us online voter registration which has nothing to do with fraud whatsoever right..

Because like the things that you liked about the city in the nineteen hundred disappear after awhile. Starbucks goes in where the delhi was and the shoeshine repair shop or whatever it goes away and is replaced by like a pro cut or some shit like all the stuff that made new york new york in the eighties is washed away by this influx of new people.

"Congressman John Lewis applauded the efforts of a new generation. With the sense of determination and commitment and dedication. There would be no turning back. Street in front of the White House was renamed Black Lives Matter Plaza. Discussions of Police Reform and Training remain active. We will ban choke holds and strength of those are police officers are to be guardians and not warrior for Monica Waters, 95.5 WSB give Iraq and how to bring in three people who were on the air when these protests over racial injustice hit their peak in Atlanta, the summer mark Aaron for the Mark Arum Show and Shelly, winner from word on the street. And first of all, silly. Don't you have a partner? I do? I do. So let's talk about my partner. We find out that she couldn't make it because she had a scheduling conflict. So you know, we won't even mention her name. We'll address that later. When I want to start with the night of May 29th when you guys were on the air all weekend, really and mark Never thought I'd see that level of violence in this city. It seems like years ago, honestly, J I mean, this year has just been such anomaly. And that was a night for the ages. That's tonight. That's going to stick with me for the rest of my life. Our city. The city too busy to hate wasn't in the shown in its best light that night, Shelly. Why? Why did that happen here? Atlanta's an interesting city. It's all African American run, but the young people of increasingly moving away from that Atlanta way they're increasingly seeing. Well, if my grandmother and my mother fought the same problems in the same problems exist there. Calculus is basically maybe non violence is not the way to go because I'm still seeing the same problems existing from that calculus. I understand where the violence is coming from. I don't agree with it obviously just happened. Our young people are fed up. Six months later. How effective wasn't as effective as the Watts riots as effective as the Detroit riots? It wasn't effective. You got the same problems, you're going to have the same problems. They may not be covered as much in the media as they were doing an election year as the change anything, absolutely not Keisha lands bottoms is going to be the mayor of Atlanta. All the people are going to remain in power. No one's gonna be politically affected by it. Life goes on. I think a majority of the people that took to the streets were not intending violence, harm fires. What I do think was criminals are criminals. But there's some smart criminals out there and they seize opportunities. And they say, Well, people on the street. Let's get out there and get ours. It wasn't the people that are really for some sort of change in the way we do things, But I agree with your point. I think that there might be a disconnect from Generation to generation. One thing in my room of sports that that I have noticed as a as a result of this that that might be a microcosm elsewhere is awareness. You look it. How the NFL handle Colin capper Nick four years ago, they would not touch him with a 30 ft Pole, And now you not only see the NFL, but every other sports league getting involved here to the point where games were canceled everywhere this summer because the shooting of this council It's a different era. Things change so rapidly now, right? The NFL saw that they said. All right, we got to get in front of this MBA. More than anyone did that. Those of the times we live in things change really quickly. You know, I'm a cynic, and I believe that the sports leagues did this just the marketing. There was no sense that we do see two systems. I think the MBA and I think, especially the NFL because Colin Kapnick stills not work still is not working. Working. Excuse me, But I think the NFL by large that is a marketing tool. They saw that they were pissed. Off less people by doing it, then the people they brought into the fold to be potential fans. This is clearly the biggest movement since the civil rights era of the sixties. The leaders then were well defined. Who are the leaders? Now It's like everything else. It's kind of like the tea party. It's kind of like occupy Wall Street. It's all the same thing. It's a loose collection of people doing their own thing. There's a bunch of people who truly believe, and there's a lot of people who would just say, Hey, this is the new way. And I'm going to get on board. There is no leadership per se because the young people were raised in a different era. They didn't really look up to the Jesse Jackson's and Al Sharpton's other world. That was my exact point. This happens 25 years ago. It's Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson in the forefront, and now we have LeBron James, or some people's popular on social media. That might not be household names. So what makes this such a big story here? I mean, obviously is a big story nationwide is Shelly. This is the birthplace of the civil rights movement. And and this is where Dr King lays and Ebeneezer is. So I think we are super sensitive to that movement. Because we are. We're here in the birthplace of it. Absolutely. And one of the great stories and I don't know if I'm allowed to tell a story, but I'm gonna tell it anyway. John Lewis spoke While the Atlanta rise we're going on in his thing was telling the young people get off the streets we need to have love. We need to have Nonviolence and discipline killer Mike and T. I were asked by the mayor to come out that night, according to Kill him like he told me that it took T I and our to convince him to do that..
