"I also do cover, you know, the Biden administration at large, but again, I focus on what it means for a Georgia audience. And you certainly had a lot to, from a Georgia standpoint to write about between the 2020 election and the inauguration, so in sort of the lead up to January 6th, what were you writing, what were you sort of focusing on? So remember that Georgia had its Senate runoffs that ended on January 5th. And then on January the third, the new Congress was sworn in. So I spent New Year's Eve and up until January 2nd in Atlanta covering runoffs in the candidates. And I flew back to D.C. because we needed to cover the new Congress and we had four new members sworn in to Democrats to Republicans. And then on the 5th, I was in Washington, but I watched from afar our elections and we saw that Warnock won that night and by the next morning it was clear that ossoff was also going to win. So leading up to January 6th, not just my eyes, but the eyes of the nation in a lot of ways were on Georgia because of the Senate runoffs. And then we also knew that the Republican members of Georgia's congressional delegation, most of them had signed on to support former president will then president Trump and challenging Joe Biden's win in Georgia. So I had been covering their comments about challenging the Electoral College vote counting process on January 6th. So going into that day, that is what I was prepared for is, you know, we have 8 Republicans in the house at the time I knew at least half of them plus senator Kelly loeffler, who had promised Donald Trump in her last campaign rally before the runoff, she had promised to challenge these Electoral College votes giving our delegation the right coalition they needed to move forward with an official challenge. People may not know that in the past years, there have been symbolic challenges. But if you don't have a senator and a member of the House willing to challenge the same state at the same time, it's just symbolic. It doesn't really go through. But what was different this year is,

"The shootings happen at a Kurdish, cultural center, and a restaurant and a hairdresser nearby. Riots broke out after police used tear gas. The Paris prosecutor says the 69 year old shooting suspect taken into custody had been released from prison recently. He was arrested a year ago for attacking two Sudanese men with a sword at a migrant camp in Paris. Oh, there we go. We're not the only country that ends up having people that are released for crimes, prematurely, the then go on to commit even more heinous ones as happened today. The story out of Paris as you had three that were killed by the aforementioned perp. I mean, political correctness. And the criminal justice system. Interesting. How the boundaries have worked equitably in this particular regard except. I mean, thank God, right, that we only have mass shootings in the United States. If only Paris had more gun control, I guess that wouldn't be a problem there. All right, so Brian went in for the great one, Mark Levin. And talked a little bit about candidate quality, that kind of thing came up in the previous segment. I did want to switch gears into some of what we can do to be constructive going forward. In fact, coming up next wins, I'm going to be talking a lot about that on the show. Because it's important that we focus on controlling what we can control. And there's a lot that we can. And sitting in Florida seeing what we did, what went right. I think there are a lot of takeaways. If we, so to speak, make America Florida. But there is the unpacking of the whole Trump situation. And I will say that, yes, it's fair to blame Trump. But maybe not for the reasons that people want to. You know, he know he wasn't on the ballot this year, yes, many of his candidates were, including Herschel Walker, who in a case of deja vu, and when he the beginning of the month dropped the Senate runoff election in Georgia, ensuring Democrats will have full Senate control in January, near identical replay of what happened back in the 2020 cycle. The one thing that people get caught up in is the game of perceived good non Trump GOP candidates who would theoretically have one close elections that Republicans lost across the country versus perceived bad Trump candidates Allah, a walker that lost. And there are so many ways in which I could illustrate the oversimplification of that hypothetical, but the two that are, I think, really easy to pick up on anyone who specifically wants to talk about candidate quality or the lack thereof and Trump's picks this cycle, you have to answer the one that I reference, which is John fetterman. The worst major party candidate by way of quality, I've ever seen run a statewide race. He won by 5 points. One of the things to remember there is, it wasn't like he just tripped across the line. Betterment one by 5 and PA. So what do you like to attempt to make the case that perhaps that good old establishment pick would have maybe lost, I don't know, by just four points in that race? It was clear that Pennsylvania voters this cycle are going to vote for a Democrat. Regardless of if it was a poodle or an inanimate object, you know, Federer men wasn't just a bad candidate. He was awful. And he won by 5. The other example is Georgia because if you take a look at what happened in 2020, Georgia Republican senators, which arrived on the same prior to Trump being on it, and the case of David perdue and appointed by popular Republican governor Brian Kemp and the case of Kelly loeffler, they lost their elections too, didn't they? They were lost their runoff elections in 2020. Trump didn't have anything to do with either

Van Jones: Herschel Walker Is an Insult to the Black Community
"You've got van Jones out there on CNN last night. Talking about how Herschel Walker was an insult to the black community, cut number 8. Yeah, you know, I hope so. I mean, that could happen. What I do know is this. Tonight is about Georgia. And tonight is about Trump picking somebody who frankly used to be a hero. Herschel Walker used to be an inspiration. Now it means insults. He's an insult to the black community and what you may see tonight is people coming out and not just to vote in favor of a senator that they love, but just to vote against Donald Trump picking somebody like this and throwing this person at the voters in Georgia. Like, well, you'll just pick anybody who's black. His judgment, Trump's judgment. Tonight is going to be, I think, called into question by a lot of people. And I think that when you have a situation where it's obvious that Trump when he was a little bit too clever by half, I know, I'm going to put a black guy against a black guy, but the guy that he pickles around black. That's actually part of that is actually true. Herschel Walker was picked because of the color of his skin. What have I said about identity politics on this radio program? What have I said? It doesn't work if you're a Republican. It doesn't work. You want an example. And by the way, this is how we got into the mess we are in right now. It goes back to Brian Kemp, the governor of Georgia, when he put Kelly loeffler in the U.S. Senate. He specifically wanted a woman. It didn't matter that she wasn't a conservative. He wanted a woman. She turned out to be a terrible candidate, which again is how we got here in the first place. And

"We're running strong for getting our message out there at this race is closer than it should be for the one simple reason He's trying to communicate the state of Utah but he believes whatever any typical voter might want him to believe But in reality he's a Democrat He's a political chameleon Whose latest color is deep democratic blue When you look into what he's actually said and what he's actually done when you look into the fact that he actively courted the democratic endorsement of the Utah Democratic Party In order to do so he adopted a number of their policy positions after having voted for Joe Biden campaigned against David perdue and Kelly loeffler in 2021 after years of condemning the Republican Party as hopelessly infected with evil ideology All of these things reflect the pattern of a Democrat who is now raising millions of democratic dollars that Democrats donor network and dumping millions of dollars of that filtering it through democratic consultants And millions of attack ads on me This is the work of a Democrat The guy who embraced S one that the bill in the Senate that would take away the authority of the states to enact voter integrity laws Voter ID laws legislative redistricting laws and things like that This is the work of a Democrat So I need all the support I can get So any of your listeners who want to help the volunteer work to donate they can do so at leaf or Senate And for your listeners in Utah I encourage them to get out today Fill out their ballots today You should receive them by now in the mail If you haven't already done so fill out your balance today vote for me and get those in the mail

"Senate held in Georgia. These were the Kelly loeffler and senator produced seats. And of course, they were won by ossoff Democrats Oscar and Warnock. And we now know from very that there was one simple explanation for why those two candidates lost. And that is that literally over 200,000 voters stayed home because they believed the rhetoric that their vote wouldn't matter. Literally wouldn't matter. So to your point about how important it is to encourage participation, part of how participation stays at good levels is that the people running the system do a good and transparent job when they make mistakes they own up to them and we have a sufficient transparency that citizens can see what's happening. It literally every stage except when the voters marking their ballot. That's what we need.

"Campaigns. And that is the actual dynamics of the campaign that internal, you know, I always go back and tell people if they ever wanted to see it just update the clothing and update the talk a little bit and the old movie the candidate with Robert Redford is probably one of the better looks at how a campaign starts. It's genesis and how it iterates through with media with messaging with all the stuff that goes on. But I've made this comment and you'll laugh at this because I have said it I said yesterday on an interview I've done several times for candidates when we've come to me for advice. I say hi, good team. Trust them or fire them. But how many times have you seen the issues where a candidate or the family of a candidate is it odds with the team and it just makes life miserable in that regard? Most of the time, right? I would say the I would say the alternative is the outlier, right? I mean, and that's because look, you know, when I go into you and I have worked together, I consider you a friend, you know, we didn't have that dynamic in the last it doesn't mean we didn't have disagreements within the team. Of course we did. That's natural, right? But it can't get to the point where it's counterproductive and destructive. And look, campaigns, as we've said before, and I've said before, they're very, very hard on families, right? And I don't have all the answers. I've never been a part of a team where I've professed to know the answers. And so as you said, you know, I like working with good teams with diverse skill sets and diverse mindsets and, you know, there are some things I feel very, very strongly about as a consultant, you know, back when I was doing it. And there are some things that I feel less strongly about, that maybe another member of the team feels strongly about. And so, you know, yeah, look, I always tell candidates, you know, my job is to get you elected. It's not to make you Friends. Right? It's not to make certain that if this race ends, you won't have some people in this district that might not like what you did, but, you know, my job is to get you elected. And if you get elected, then you're going to be happy with the campaign. Now, you might regret running four years later. You might not really, you know, what you signed up for might not meet your expectations, but yeah, look, that, you know, you were, you and I, when you ran for U.S. Senate against Kelly loeffler, we didn't have the discussion of, can we win this race? Against $60 million. And we had the discussion. Can we win this race against $20 million? Which is an obscene amount of money. I mean, $20 million is an obscene amount of money because that was the number at the time, Doug that was, you know, that was being floated around by Kelly and her team. And we made the decision that after lots of discussions that, you know, we could get outspend 20 million to 5 million, 20 million to 6 million in when. And but we didn't know that when you included the money that was spent by the campaign and the outside groups that she no doubt funded that it ended up to be $60 million. And so one of the reasons we went into election day within the margin of error in polling and one of the reasons that we went into election day with the chance of winning, even though we came up short it was, you know, is because of that dynamic. I mean, you know, you and I, we didn't always agree. I mean, there were times you'd call and, you know, you weren't happy. There were times I call it. I wasn't happy, but oh yeah. We trusted each other and we knew that each other was all in. And that's, you know, that's just, it makes it, it put us in a position to have a chance at winning late, even though when you look at the money that we spent in the money that she spent, you know, we probably, we probably should have been maybe more like what the polling looks like right now for camp and Purdue. And we were just never there. Now we ended up losing by 5 points, and that was disappointing. And, you know, we both wished for a different result. But I think one of the reasons that we were in that campaign up until the end and was because of, you know, the team that we had and really kind of the tone that you said too and the tone was also down. We were all rowing in the same direction, even though, you know, like I said, that doesn't mean we're all going to agree. We had heated conversations about strategic direction. And that's normal. And you want to have that. But it doesn't need to get to the point where it's destructive and it didn't get close to that. Well, and I think that and for me, and this is for candidates out there. I want you to listen to it. I mean, there are a lot of you going to have bad experiences with campaigns consultants and everything else. But I want to decide. For me, it was very easy and Lisa and I both had this understanding that, you know, if we hired people, we're going to trust them or we're going to find them. There's just no sense in worrying about. And I'm going to give an example chip and you may have forgotten this one, but it was an example that I won't, if you're listing all of them to understand. In my very first real campaign, that was the one for Congress and 12. We were in a tight race against a very worthy opponent, very well known much more well-known than in that environment. Had the names come in, had everything. We were sort of an uphill battle. And we won in a runoff and I'll never forget there was a certain talking about negative pieces. We had a mail piece that was hard. It was and I'll just put it that way. It was a hard mail piece. And I remember looking at it and saying, oh, you know, I had that, and you always said that good male pieces, if they're negative, they gotta make you go, wow. Well, this one, I went wild and sat down. It was just a piece of social. Dissipates. And I remember calling you. And we had had developed a good enough relationship. I said, look, I said chip. I'm concerned about this. And the very first one, if you remember, we both had some concerns about it. It was a little bit too strong. We nailed it back, and I looked at Lisa and I said, yes, people are going to be mad that we send this out. But what would happen if we didn't send it out and we lose? You know, I don't mind sending it out in losing, but if what we're doing and I remember you and I having that conversation, I trusted you enough to say, I trust chip to do this. And I think that's a relationship consultant. Unfortunately, we're seeing a model today, chia, and I'm not wanting to throw as dispersions on any campaign or anything else. Our consultant shops, because all our shops are becoming bigger, the GCs are becoming more hands off. And that is a concern.

"You know, playing the role that you're playing this cycle and getting to watch so many of these campaigns, you also have to have candidates that are willing and want to get better, right? I mean, you know, most of the successful candidates that I've seen, whether I was working for them or against them, you know, whether we had a role in helping them get elected or whether they beat candidate that I was running. The successful campaigns want to get better, right? And they make good fundamental decisions, even though they're outsiders. And so, you know, so yeah, I don't know if that kind of answers your question, but you can be an outsider, but you're going to have to, you're going to have to put meat on the bone and give people a reason of compelling reason to elect, you know, to vote for you because just because you're an outsider isn't enough. You've got to be able to put a campaign together, put a structure together. You have to make good decisions on resource allocation. And I know that sounds very simple. But you could have all the money in the world as a campaign. If you're not making good decisions on how to allocate those resources, then you're really in many respects leaving money on the table. Exactly. Because you're actually you're wasting it. And I think that's 100%. And one of the things that I've seen coming up and talking to some candidates, you know, again, I bought several, you know, look, I think you're a strong candidate. I mean, if you wanted to run for something else, but why are you running for the office that you're running for? And one of the worst excuses I hear from Candace is, well, I've been talking to some folks and I really don't like so and so and you know I got a lot of friends and family and does it take away again you can't deny that, okay? And I'm not making fun of it either. It's a real emotion out here because we go back to emotions that you know that well I can just go out and shake enough hands and win. You taught me a great lesson one time and I want you to expand on that. Especially say in a race for Congress. Or Congress or even a statewide race. You physically can't shake enough hands. There's just no way that the candidate themselves and that's one of the money the digital now, the other parts that operation are so important. How do you explain that to a candidate to say, look, you know, and what you think about, you know, just putting some signs in the front yard. I'll let you talk about your hard times, too, chip. I know you're, I know your love of those. But sort of explained how you would, for somebody who might be listening to this and saying, you know, I really think I should have won, and I could. You know, nobody likes the incumbent. I love those big word nobody likes the incumbent. Yeah, right. Okay, come on. Explain how you break through that in trying to get a candidate to understand. Yeah, look, first thing I'll say is being a candidate is hard. It always has been. It's a huge sacrifice, usually for the candidate, the candidate's family, the candidates downtime, which he or she's going to have none of every now and then or none of while they're going through the campaign. And so you're right. When candidates are out in the community, they're always going to be, they're always going to be told that things are a lot better than they really are. Or they're going to be told things are a lot worse than they really are, right? I mean, good campaigns make decisions on good data. You know, if you've got good polling and you believe you have good polling, you need to make decisions on that. You know, you don't need to make decisions based upon what you want somebody told you the local coffee shop or the local barbershop or the supermarket. I mean, that's going to be that's going to be tainted. And as a candidate, that's tough because you need to have good listening skills, right? But you need to be able to filter that with how you're going to make decisions on resource allocation. And with respect to how I've always handled it and I didn't need to do this with you because you understood it. But it's a math. It's really a math equation, right? You'd be surprised how many people run for office. And they don't do what we call voter turnout modeling, which is we model what we think in election is going to look like. And what that means is we're simply trying to guess as best we can, how many people are going to vote in that election. And so if we think that there's going to be 200,000 people vote in an election, then we need 1100 1001 votes to win. If the number truly is 200,000. And so we're constantly looking at data to come up with a voter turnout model. And then I like to cut that in half and add 3%, right? And so, you know, if we do that, here's how many votes we need to win. And then I normally go, you know, go back and say, look, you know, I usually sit down with a candidate and say, look, let's look at your last two weeks on the schedule. And let's figure out how many people we think that you have met in the last two weeks. And it's usually less than they think, right? And then you say, okay, see, you met, you know, 40 people a day. That's a lot of people a date to me. You know, there's 40 new people a day. And that candidate's probably meeting those people at party meetings at Qantas meetings at rotary club meetings that sporting events. They're talking to people that are in the community. And so, you know, with that, you do math and say, okay, you know, let's figure that 90% of them are registered to vote in your district. Let's say that, you know, 40% of them are going to vote in the Republican primary. You know, let's say that if they meet you personally, you have a chance to get three out of every four votes that you meet, even though they might meet your opponent too. And sometimes those numbers are aggressive and all of a sudden you're looking at cutting the cutting the list from 90% down to 40% and then cutting it again. And by the time you get there, you know, in most cases, unless you're unless you're running in a seat that's really small where you really can go door to door and meet a lot of your constituents. The math doesn't work out. And so, you know, you have to raise money and then you have to spend that money on direct voter contact so that you can you can try to get in front of a voters many times as you can. I mean, a good rule of thumb is you want to, you want to make sure you have ten con, a minimum of a minimum of ten contacts with a direct voter contact with a voter before they vote. And there are variables that affect that. I mean, if you're running against somebody that has an unlimited bank account, like you found yourself in last cycle and I found myself in against, you know, Kelly loeffler, you know, that number is going to have to exponentially increase. And so it's really, it's really a math equation and you don't have to be good at math in order to realize that money is still the mother's milk and politics. It doesn't mean you have to spend the most amount of money, but you know, you better have enough to Annie at the table. Well,.

"Campaigns are still about fundamentals. The outside messages, everything else, but there's still an inherent basis. Do you think you might have been an outsider in his messaging, but he was a real insider when it came to understanding money. The team, he had his former his cousin, was a former governor, Georgia. So there's a lot there. This leads really and it's a perfect setup shift where I want to go next for people out there because I want people in this podcast. If you're out there wanting to run for office, from someone lower offices up, especially the congressionals and others. There's a process to doing this. When you look at a campaign. Because I know how people to a candidates do it. You know, oh, I want to go win. I can win, I got you a mama almost been a win, I'm a cousin down the street and says I can do it. But when it comes to campaigns, you as a consultant, your general consultant had on, how do you start laying that out for a candidate? Because I'm concerned that you got consultants now that are seeing it almost like some of these candidates. This is easy. I can make money and I'm not really concerned about the result. Yeah, no question. I mean, you know, as I said, I'm not doing campaigns in elections. This cycle, but in every campaign that I've always done, you know, I would always sit down with a candidate before the campaign began. And I would ask them this question, why are you running? And you can learn a lot about how they answer that question at the beginning of a campaign, right? And that doesn't mean that, you know, that doesn't mean it can candidate has to answer that question. The right way. I mean, it's really, it can be a difficult question to answer because it's a really basic question. And there campaigns are ready for very difficult questions. But, you know, why are you running is it? Is it difficult question, right? Because you need to get to your message in a hurry and if you can't really explain to somebody while you're running in 30 to 45 seconds and kind of build upon it, then you need to refine that. You need to learn how to do

"Bugle saying is here Which is the most embarrassing leaked audio Is it McCarthy Is it David perdue Did you see this one Oh yeah David perdue was banking on Trump's endorsement to help him defeat Brian Kemp and Georgia Republican primary but a new book reveals that in the runoff to his up to his He was run off against John ossoff He actively sought to convince anti Trump voters to help him win the Senate They're also just craven in hypocritical and ridiculous It's yet another example of GOP candidates saying one thing about Trump in public when seeking his blessing another behind closed doors as they plot their political careers The book reads at the time many senior Republicans wanted Purdue and then U.S. senator Kelly loeffler to focus on the message that keeping Republican control of the Senate would counter democratic control of the House White House by Biden but doing so would have been acknowledging that Trump lost just as he was ramping up his false claims of a stolen vote So Purdue pushes the producers on the tape And we believe again going back to this not only libertarians but there are people who voted in anti Trump way voted for Biden and then voted down that list and we think may come back to us in this plea for a split government Oh my God so now he's up there in the debate this week saying this was a stolen election blah blah blah They all know it wasn't a stolen election All of them That's not a problem for David perdue Again Kemp is also in trouble with Trump for telling the truth Right Again if you tell the truth the Republicans will punish you but Purdue is not going to pay a price for this because he has done what it takes to become Donald Trump's favorite kind of man A man who once opposes Donald Trump and now grovels before him The JD Vance I was just going to say I think I think he is a pathetic fraud that is going to lose the attempt to Tim Ryan in the fall What do you think Pathetic If there are debates Tim Ryan will clean this clown's clock But this is what Trump loves if you opposed him Lindsey Graham for example Rand Paul If you told the truth about him like Ted Cruz and then you grovel before him Trump will love you because Trump is a sadist And that's how we operate Donald Trump is aging You're right John the more you degrade yourself almost the more anti extreme Trump you are the more you subjugate yourself the more sadistic pleasure Look at Ben Shapiro these groveling little supplicants who once told the truth about Trump And then realize you know what Maybe instead of calling out the bully will be better off if we join the bully and bully alongside of him And that's the whole mentality That's how you know they are weak men It's not going to end well for any of them Yep Zoe lofgren one more yes We have a lot of information about what various Republican members did to promote the plot Some from a documents and some from testimony of others but we would like to hear from the members of Congress themselves Some things we can find out from what they said publicly or did or issued statements publicly but we're going to try and get a coherent and truthful picture for the American public Well you won't get anyone of that from the Republicans or maybe we'll get it anyway One last one Some of the DoJ filings are give us new information The fact that this individual had contacts in The White House he could get through to someone and have his phone call I mean your average citizen can't call into The White House staff And have a conversation So clearly there were connections and an expectation at least on the part of that individual that he would be heard by the president So it's concerning That's going to be another factor in the midterms right We have not even started these January 6th hearings right That's the thing we've got to remember You're going to have first roe V wade which we thought was going to happen later in the summer but that's already begun And that's going to motivate a lot of people who are still tired from eroding two years ago to get activated Then you're going to have the mini series of the summer of the January 6th hearings and then look I don't want to make any more predictions on this show for God's sakes But in August the pause on student loan debt forgiveness will expire And I predict Joe Biden will do the moral and the political thing which is to say also the moral thing and he'll probably forgive ten grand a piece in student loans which will cut student loan debt in half because the average median student loan debt is 20 grand It's going to allow so many young people to start thinking about buying a house And it's going to be politically savvy to do it right before the midterms So the Democrats do have a strategy It doesn't look like it As I keep saying it's going to help our economy And it just might be a bag of D's no matter what your experience is with the student debt or not to help these kids get ahead I mean I don't kids like Sean you know worked here It is impossible to buy a house these days The things have changed since we went to college Their college debt and the price of housing and inflation right now I mean really do you just want none of these kids to ever be able to get ahead or get or buy a house I mean it's anti capitalist you know Liz Warren pitched a deal 9 years ago that would allow student loan debt to be paid at the same interest rate The banks who ripped us off before the crash paid and Mitch McConnell blocked even having a vote on it But crushing student loan debt is keeping millions of young.

"The phones here. Ruth and Georgia wants to weigh in on the Georgia races. Hey Ruth, what's on your mind? Hey, Todd. On my mind is a few comments about this poll and what I think about it, Atlantis, journal constitution of your name part. But also about what I think about Brian Kemp versus Purdue. Ken, I take the first one the last one first. Brian Kemp. Yes, ma'am, you met. I have lived 43 years in Athens, which is his hometown. I've moved recently a few miles out of it, thank goodness, but I followed his career from day one from when he was running for dog catcher and everything else that he could possibly run for repeatedly losing until he finally stumbled his way into the Secretary of State's office. And from there into the governor's office, and my opinion of both he and Purdue is that both of them have no personality much as far as Christmas. So I think there are about equal there. But here's the big thing that camp has overproduced for this race and it scares me. He has the power of incumbency and he is throwing money hand over fist to everyone he can think of, whether it be taxpayers, you know, we're getting a little bit of extra two 50 for an individual person. A little bit more. I think 500 for maybe a family. He is giving away all kinds of things. And I understand he has massive corporate tigers, special interest support, which Purdue was lagging behind on. And that's because of his incumbency. These are lap dogs are sitting there licking their chops to getting back in so they can start calling in their favors. The other things I have against him is this. He has bought an industry here that was not good for the state of Georgia and was just corrupt and SK battery plant out of Korea. In commerce, which is a far from where our list is supposed to bring in lots of jobs, what they found out was rather than hiring U.S. citizens. They brought in Koreas and we're training them surreptitiously to be welders. The college broke this when he was still in office and got it turned around. So that plant has been bad. He also brought in or is bringing in in the process of rivian plant. Again, electric motor associated with the people who live in that area, despise it and are protesting it. And then the other thing, I think he's responsible for our senatorial losses because of his stupidity in nominating Kelly loeffler to replace isaacson. He made a lasting stock of our state by inviting everybody who wanted that to submit their resume. I couldn't believe that. But he knew who he was getting from the beginning because she made at least a $2 million contribution to his to his campaign and also he listened to these advisers who told him that suburban soccer moms didn't like certain types of people. So he thought he would get a woman who would appeal to them. Yeah, if you know anything about Kelly loeffler, he don't look at her background and see that she is the last woman on earth that would appeal to suburban soccer moms. They have.

"Tom, thanks for the call. One of the things and I'll give you a great example of this. Remember back in 2020, during the election cycle. Rush Limbaugh was encouraging voters to Republicans to go and vote in the Democrat primary. There was there was no Republican primary challenge, so they called it, remember this operation chaos. Well, here in here in the Memphis area, there was a guy named Jordan Carpenter and he's running for a local seat. I don't want to get into that, but it's a great example of how nasty some of these establishment Republicans are playing. Where they're accusing this guy who is, by the way, a military veteran served our nation honorably, he's a lawyer, and he's a conservative. They're accusing this guy being a closet Democrat because he took part in operation chaos. And voted for Bernie Sanders. And it's laughable, but a lot of people, they're not paying attention to politics, they've got plenty of other stuff to do. You've got the NBA playoffs going on. You've got the, you've got church stuff happening. You got Mother's Day coming up. And you're not going to be paying all that much attention to what's happening in politics. So you're going to be looking for the candidate when it comes time to vote, and you're going to realize, oh, wait a second, this guy is a Democrat. No, he's not a Democrat. He was just playing along with operation chaos. Am I point is, if you've got, if you have a legitimate beef with a fellow Republican. Bring that up. But don't make stuff up. I mean, that's pretty low. Come on. We expect the Democrats to do stuff like that, but Republicans we're better than that. Come on now. All right, let's go to Greg in Georgia. Greg, you've got about a minute here, so go. Okay, I just wanted to say, I feel like I'm a voter here in George. I feel like Kim is compromised, I'm a Republican and I'm for Purdue this time. I think you let Stacey Abram get away with way too much and we still don't have a signature match. He didn't call a special session of the Georgia legislature, which could have followed some of these issues looking into the voter fraud. And then he picked Kelly loeffler, of course, the whole other issue. I don't trust him at all. Well, and you're not alone there, Greg, and again, he's just made some very poor choices, and I think the biggest problem was the Kelly loeffler pick because that eventually led to the Democrats controlling the U.S. Senate, and I would put that directly at the feet of Brian Kemp. Whether you agree with him on any of anything else, that is a provable thing that he did. And he ought to answer for that. Greg, we've got a run. Thank you for keeping it short. I'm coming up. Big Supreme Court issue. That's being heard today. Should a high school football coach be allowed to pray after a football game? Now right now in America, it is legal for a football coach to take a knee to protest America. To protest the police, to protest the flag. But it's against the law for that same coach to take a knee to pray. Well, at this very moment, up on up in Washington, D.C. at the Supreme Court, the case of coach Joe Kennedy is being heard. We're going to be talking to the folks representing him, his legal firm, our friends over at first liberty institute, and we're going to be taking your calls on this. Do you believe that a high school teacher, a high school coach, should be allowed to pray on public school property? 8 four four 747 88 68, that is our telephone number.

"What prompted you and your team though to start looking into this issue specifically? So in February of 2020, right before the pandemic really came into full flourish in the most awful of ways, there were a series of stock trades, particularly by a group of senators, Richard burr, Republican from North Carolina, dianne Feinstein, Democrat from California, then Georgia's two senators, Kelly loeffler, and David perdue, who made very curiously timed trades to varying degrees, raised the question of, well, were they buying and selling stocks because they had insider knowledge that they were privy to because they were members of Congress right before the stock market tanked in March of 2020 when the pandemic, the teeth of the pandemic really came down on the United States in particular. And there were accusations. There were in some of those cases investigations that took place, but none of it amounted to any real penalty. We wanted to try to understand and try to figure out if these were anomalies in Congress, or if there was something broader. And if you will, batter going on in Congress. And that's when we began to really in earnest start looking almost on a daily basis at the publicly available information about lawmakers, personal finances. And also beginning to dig into the reality of the way things worked upon Capitol Hill, which required a lot of shoe leather reporting. So beginning in 2021, we began writing a series of articles about the personal finances of lawmakers. And in essence, we treated it as a beat. If you were a local news reporter, you would be covering city hall or the school board or the cop shop for us. It was covering the stock trades of lawmakers and trying to figure out if lawmakers in any material way were acting in their private capacity with their private finances in a way that could either in reality or in perception, conflict with their official duties, conflict with the responsibility that they had by virtue of their constituents, electing them to serve on Capitol Hill. And what we found was that there were a series of situations that we had discovered, were lawmakers were making very curious stock trades. So we're buying and selling stocks or otherwise making investments that, for example, were in companies that they had jurisdiction over because of the different types of committees that they served on in Congress. And all of this incremental reporting ultimately gave rise to us making the decision to really just go full all on in and do a project on this very topic that ultimately manifests itself in the project now known as conflicted Congress. So we have this ten year old law on the books that nominally tries to prevent all this behavior. Let's investigate why it is failing to do so. Why aren't members of Congress following the rules of the stock act? One of the most notable features of the stock act, some might consider it to be a bug, is that the penalties are incredibly low..

Am I doing that by saying that right? Yes. And she is going to he appointed her to the Senate without consulting you. Now, do not agree with this decision or are you more angry that he didn't consult you? Well, she was she looked like sort of an ugly uglier and culture there. And she landed up losing to the nice Jewish kid. I got to be honest with you off the pot. Can we go off the podcast record? We haven't done that in a while. We're gonna go off right now. This guy, John ossoff, okay? He's a very smooth talking Jewish guy from Georgia. Jewish Georgia, we call him, and I gotta be honest. If Ivanka had landed him instead of weeks skinny, no personality, Jared Kushner. I might not be as mean. I don't like his radical if puppies are very smooth talking guy. Very nice. Listen to speak. And if you're not listening to the radical left words, you'd be like, this guy is kind of cool, guy like listening to him talk. And I come up with somebody stronger than that. Then an ugly no talent worthless Ann coulter type. You know, they should have, now, Marjorie, a margarine Taylor Greene, if you want to fight it, that would have been somebody to nominate. Or if you want just a hot piece of ass. I could tell Lauren boebert moved to Georgia. Hop on my deck and I'll give you the shutout. I'll give you the Senate seat as soon as you take a seat on my lap. But instead he went with earth, which is like a combination of fluffer and loser, okay? Let's take you on to the point set and you see the fluffers and then there's that one fluffer who's not even good at the job. And that's what a Kelly loeffler is, and that's what Brian Kemp decided on. Brian Kemp used to be my favorite camp. But now he's even falling behind Sean Kemp. Who had a lot of kids. So, you know, I don't like him very much, but Brian Kemp is even worse than Sean Kemp. The worst camp. Now, if he did consult you and then still went with loeffler, would you be still this upset? Well, he's stupid. So if he consults me, you know, he's a recused. He should be recusing himself all day. He's a mentally recused person. And he should be recusing himself every day because if you stupid, so if he took my advice, which would of course, you know this would be better than his advice.

We've got Logan, who's one of the business guys here working on our store and Charlotte is one of our staff writers as well. So we put the student workers. They're getting real world experience here. And that's so important. I can say for my college days that was a tremendous help for me to prepare me for a career after college. By the way, there's a sign and their control room in case of emergency call grace baker. Oh my gosh. That's a lot of pressure. Yeah, nope. No pressure there. But all right, let's go to the phone. You know what? We're going to get and we'll get all the student workers on the show. Maybe we'll try to do that this week while we're here. We got to do that. Make that happen, grace baker. All right, let's go to the phones here, 8 four four 747 88 68. Our good friend Jerry Lynn from Georgia wants to weigh in on this big gubernatorial race. Hey, Jerry Lynn, what's happening? Hey, my sweet Todd. I just want to make a quick comment on and I voted for camp unfortunately, along with others. But I will not be voting for him nor perdue perdue is nothing but a politician in a he got to go. He never came out Todd and stood up for president Trump. When he was running with herbal left, that's what I called, though Kelly loeffler honey, herbalist, and I will be voting God for burning Jones. And so we'll all of my Friends and family. What was that? So you're burning Jones. Yes. Yeah, I want someone Todd. I'm sick of these politicians. So I never vote if you've been like Gary black. He's a good man, but he's got to go. He's a politician. If your politician thought, I'm not voting for you. All right, Jerry Lynn we got a lot of folks wanting to weigh on with this, so we've got you down for Vernon Jones, Jerry Lynn, you take care of yourself. Let's go to Tom, Tom, who are you supporting? On all honesty, Todd. Our mutual friend Joe from LA called me last night to break the news to me. And so I'm leaning towards David to do, but I'm very much anti Brian Kemp. Brian Kemp basically did nothing on election integrity. And when I get because I'm a strong Republican and I get requests for money all the time and I would just send that money request back election integrity question mark question mark and put zero in on that thing and send it back to their money razors. I'm curious, Tom. If you hang out with Joe from Elijah, then I have to imagine your politically connected there. You're in at least in the know. What are people telling you? I think a lot of times have been a lot of time being active. Well, what are people telling you, Tom? Who are they like him for this? Well, in all honesty, I disagree with the previous caller. Vernon Jones is just a Democrat that I think is an opportunist and if you look at his voting record and everything else, I think he's more in there to muddy up the primary than anything. Candace Taylor is a real, real good candidate, but I don't think she's got a chance because of funding. And so it gets to be that, but Brian campus just became so much of the establishment like Butch Miller and raffensperger and all this. Yeah, and I don't want to go down that rabbit hole. All right, very good Tom. Appreciate the call. Let's go to Jeff in Georgia. RHF, who do you support? I am supporting David perdue. And the reason for it is because I felt like that Brian Kemp and who I voted for, by the way, he did not do anything when all these problems with the election came about. And as far as I know from everyone that I've spoke to, there's three things on everybody's list, it's got to go. Brian kip, Brad raffensperger and those boat machines. And that's the way I feel about it. Yeah, I'm with you. And I'd say I'm glad that Jody heiss is running for Secretary of State. I think you'll do a terrific job for you guys. Well, we need it because of what happened last time. We don't want anybody making any more backdoor deals with Democrats or anyone else about our voting system. It did not go before the legislature and that was totally wrong. All right, well look, Jeff, thank you. Real quick, let's go to Allen. You've got about 30 seconds here, Allen. Okay. Well, first of all, I am not a quarter Brian Kemp because of how he conducted himself after the election.

"Look at the challenges around the country for Joe Biden you're going to be a midterm election On the one hand yeah they could have those wins of the issues around the country whether it's economic or otherwise that may make it a challenge for Democrats but Georgia could also just kind of be on its own island of being a state Again moving a little more democratic while the rest of the country is seeing a Republican wave In terms of her efforts to get out the vote and really you know resonate with people who have been nonvoters previously Do you think that that's something we're going to see really ramped up again The question is how many voters are still out there whether it's getting the new voters who are just turning of age you register them or new people who are moving to Georgia But we've seen numbers from the Secretary of State's office of really high voter registration In the end for both Stacey Abrams and for Brian Kemp and actually you saw this yesterday in the Atlanta mayor's race This is really going to come down to turnout And you know for when you think about voters voters are pretty much many voters there are obviously libertarian voters but many voters are going to know who they're going to vote for whether it's Brian Kemp or Stacey Abrams It really comes down to getting your voters to the polls and that's what really the engine that Stacey Abrams is produced with fair fight And you're seeing a little bit of it with Kelly loeffler's drug greater Georgia What roadblocks potentially are in Stacey Abrams way There's always the possibility of someone running against her in the democratic primary but just a reminder you know four years ago state representative Stacey Evans ran against Stacey Abrams and she lost pretty badly I think it was 76% to 20 76% is 24% It really wasn't even close Obviously someone could run against her Otherwise you're looking to see if she makes a misstep Brian Kemp might have one election to get through before an Abrams Kemp rematch would happen What does her entry into the race mean to his campaign They expected it You know I've already had some text messages and conversations with they saw this coming They expected it They even had a statement ready to go.

"Conversation with Steve Bannon. One of the shows like yours, and Mine have to always keep ahead of it is that I go into the sites and see what's happening that people were so informed and have access to so much information and they're so into it. You've got to make sure the show is not a general show. I mean, come on there with the two hours of the morning I go. Wow. Not only do we have to concentrate, but we actually actually have to have new information because they're so up to speed. It's quite It's amazing and a lot of this is the founding peoples get or feeds or Twitter feeds or what your show is putting out. And then they take it to the next level, and they spend hours you have you know some of these sites I sit there and I look at you know, obviously, some of it is a little girl form, but a lot of it. Is dead spot on it. People have done research and the crowd source things that you have real experts. And so it puts the pressure on the Charlie Kirk's and Steve Bannon to make sure these shows don't turn into just Fox talk. Totally. You've got to be ahead of it. Every day I staff is working to keep up with the audience. Remember this? Another thing with the With President Trump. I keep telling guys there's all ripping on him. I said hey. And many respects the populist nationalist movement is actually farther to the right than President Trump. I mean, you can say I agree completely with the vaccine mandates, etcetera has said. Don't you picking on Trump or trump all the time in and I said, But you've got to see where that goes to the next year down not of elected officials, but powerful voices in this movement and their and their farther to the right. And I believe that the smart people on the left Understand that they see exactly what's happening. And Trump has prudence and wisdom, and he will follow the cue from the people, though that's the thing If you've noticed that and and some of his interviews, all of a sudden he's going after Pfizer a little bit he's going. I mean, he gets it right. He listens, and that's something. He's a non ideological figure which a lot of people that's an unknown commodity. And so so, Steve, are you starting to see though at the highest levels of the Republican Party and Senate leadership or house leadership, are they starting to get the clue is this Is this starting to change? And if so, what needs to be done for that to change? Here's what he's gone, and I think it's right turning point and these operations we have to Um, it's not only about winning anymore. Obviously, we have to win, Okay, but we have to win with the right people in the right policies. I think now and I believe 2022 is going to be because we've got to get to the bottom of three November that's still essential. To get there, but we have to do it with the right people, and we have to do with the right politics. He's have to be populist nationalist policies and they have to be the right people and what you're going to see a lot of bait and switch and you brought up a perfect one. Kelly Loeffler. Down in, You know, First of all, I think there's 21. When we get to the bottom of Georgia are going to see that we had to Republicans. However, I totally agree, but it was. It should have been a 500,000 vote win right. But let's be honest. There's 405 or $500 million spent by the Republicans in that 45 days. I don't think a lot of that flow through Charlie Kirk shirt or war room. And they were I'm sitting there. And instead of focusing on November 3rd and what support and getting all the Trump voters out and Backed up. They're talking about capitalism versus socialism. Yeah, it's kind of this esoteric of you that you know, people say, Hey, tell me how capitalism's worked for me when I'm one paycheck away from desolation and it's worked for the 1%. I got that, but how? How's it working for me? So it's the messaging. They're going to try to message this and what they're going to try to do is draft off. They want The muscle in the energy in the dynamism of the trump movement, the populist movement, but they want to continue with their same policies and we're going to have that's going to be a fight. I think a lot of these primaries particularly we could win. I think 50 to 60 seats in the house. If we tee this up like 2010 particularly remember, Biden isn't complete freefall. He's in complete free fall in the suburbs, the economists polled the other day, said the economists. Now not not not Charlie Kirk show a turning point a war room. The Economist poll had 42% of independent voters. Believe he's illegitimate. Okay, that should go off like a fire bell on the night. The other pole they had, I think was the morning consult poll had no no no. No Labels, which is a moderate group had only 39% of suburban voters, which is their strength believe they should do this $6 trillion in spending. They wanted to follow mansions. Let's take a breather. We don't know what's going on here. He's imploding everywhere, and his numbers are lower than Clinton's in 94. The reason was not reason was he was never at the Obama levels. He was more I think at 43 or 45% of the real vote, and that's why you see the implosion down. We could run the tables. The whole issue is going to be who's in the primaries, right and who are these voice is going to be and where the policy is going to be, and I think that's going to get that's going to get a little dicey, and it's going to be a lot of you know, the establishment's going to blow back hard is an article in Politico Today..

"Should be a heck of a lot better. In either of the two radicals that are now Georgia's senators, but people stayed home. I mean, I admittedly people like Kelly Loeffler in her campaign folks didn't do themselves any favors. When you got a national radio show with millions of listeners and a ton of Georgia listeners coming to your state to support you. You got to give us five minutes to tell us why you ought to be the next senator for Georgia. And you know, it's not even I don't even take it personally. I was offended when Kelly Levelers campaign wouldn't give us the time of day and wouldn't even acknowledge our repeated requests for an interview with the candidate. I was offended on your behalf. Was offended on behalf of the listeners in Georgia. Who knew what we were doing. So yes, she's a lousy candidate. Even as a lousy candidate and a terribly run campaign. She would be. Heck of a lot better for Georgia and America. Then what we wound up getting in Georgia. Now we have a 50 50 deadlocked Shannon. And I truly believe that people stayed home Republicans, maybe independents and Democrats stayed home in Georgia. And in many cases, you stayed home because you were frustrated and angry. About the outcome of the presidential election. And we can't continue that cycle because that's exactly what the Democrats want to happen. They want you to stay home. They want us to be arguing about election fraud. They want us to say, Oh, you know, Trump got robbed. I'm never going to vote again. That's music.
Kelly Loeffler sells stake in WNBA team after clashing with players over Black Lives Matter
"We have exciting news in the wnba. That kelly lafler has exited the building. Bob bub-bubba i feel like we should have celebration. Music will and even better a you. Part of that ownership new ownership group includes montgomery has an actual wnba player. And you know who has a podcast in who is a somebody who's been a real voice on issues equity all summer and beyond you know well into the past tradition in a history of ad. I think that's important because it means that the the voice of anti black lives matter is now being replaced by someone who can fully embody the spirit and direction of the wnba. I could not agree more and the power that the wnba has had. I mean we talk about when we talk about you know leading the movement. The black lives matter movement. We talk so often about the nfl or the nba. But really the wnba. And we've said this before. I mean they started this movement. Back in twenty fifteen in the sports world and You know they basically made raphael warnock. Who's now a us. Senator a player in this when they all wore those warnock shirts i think at that point he was voting. Nine percents Who pulling at nine voting. He was polling at nine percent And he wound up winning. And i think that the power that these women have in the way that they have used their platform for good and for inclusion and equity and making the world. A better place is something. That is such a tonic. To see it what we've gone through the past four years so i i'm thrilled to see it. I'm glad kelly law is out of the wnba. Imagine playing for someone who denies that your skin color that you as a human being matter. I mean she you know she tried to parse it a little bit more subtly than that she was talking about she would talk about the black lives matter organization as opposed to the concept of black lives mattering and i think she did that deliberately so that she could say things like i mean she said some really you know i i would say pretty crazy or just you know in such bad faith things such as that black lives matter doesn't want jesus in the church in you know that's just the tip of the iceberg and it just is so deeply offensive to people who are deeply committed attack but what i love about the wnba an and the way that they inserted themselves into those georgia senate races is that you now have a group of predominantly black women who are somewhat responsible for having a black vice president have to go into the senate to break a tie yet and that is i mean i just. I love the way that that is an expression of power but this is not over in georgia is already passing some legislation to make it more difficult to vote did particularly pinpoint Practices that black communities have used to get out the vote like souls to the polls closing the ability of pulse be open on sundays in the future and kelly law flir is not exiting from politics. She is actually spearheading some of those georgia movements to make voting more difficult for community of Communities of color. And so i you know this is. This is going to be interesting because it's you know this is not the credit should not be rolling here. This is still a very a live issue for georgia and for the rest of the
