"The message busier. We send the message that does this kind of politics you're not just again beaten. You're gonNA get beaten he never or face again you bud. Enough. Absolutely. Enough of what we are getting from Donald Trump and spell. That's right this If you don't support Jon Ossoff you need to never show your face again in public they need to make sure that you never show your face again in public I gotTA. Tell you I don't think this rhetoric is going to help the Democrats like Lucy MC bath in the sixth congressional district is running as a gun control candidate and time that even overwhelmingly black Americans are buying guns I don't think this works for the Democrats in the way they presume I don't think it works for the Democrats at all. And yet they're doing it now, how does this play out? In Georgia and for those of you watching nationally online or you're listening livestream or or somewhere you just going to have to bear with me here because I I live in Georgia all my affiliates are in Georgia for now and I wanna I wanNA spend a moment here The Democrats have a number problems in Georgia although turnout is key and you know so I that. The trump campaign has hired put on the payroll virtually every college Republican, the state. To do foam banking and door to door and grassroots mobilization. And oftentimes, what they're doing is they're going door to door in neighborhoods and they're not on doors. They're putting out literature flight under the radar. And they're organizing doing phone banking for Republican candidates They can't go knock on a door. So they're at least calling on a full now in some some neighborhoods. They are going door to door. and they're going door to door because they're in neighborhoods were voters are more skeptical of the virus I. I was actually talking to a Republican candidate last night he said he had some people who in knocked on doors and they had to stop because they were knocking on solidly Republican doors and the Republicans whose doors they were not going to. We're telling them get off their property that they were endangering their families by being there. And so it depends on the area where you are but it matters that sorta stuff actually matters. That sorta stuff is having an impact. And inhabitant impact and doing that sort of stuff. The thing that we're seen nationally and locally here in Georgia is that ground game matters tremendously stacey. Abrams has been working very hard with fair fight George in the light to mobilize people but the Republicans after twenty eighteen realized they had a problem they needed to fix it in Georgia to understand where Republicans are being so aggressive and ground game this year he'd he'd understand what how they weren't in two thousand eighteen. In, two thousand eighteen. Republicans in the state of Georgia, outsource their door knocking effort to the National Republican Party. There are in see committed to doing the ground game in Georgia? Now I've heard this from candidates I've heard this from elected officials I have heard this from a party officials. And I know the organization that got the contract from the GOP to do the door knocking. And all of them. Tell me the same thing. The nationally the Republicans said, Hey, don't worry about the suburbs will take care of the suburbs y'all work with Brian Kemp and focus on the rural parts of the state. Will take care of the Metro Atlanta..

"Gordon some so you gotTa have high capital costs in order to do it and in so doing it they'll be able to say okay. You're legit because you got the money to pay it in to grow it and and deal with the processors and the rest of you were just. GonNa burn your fields and possibly arrest you. That's this is a government. We're talking about when governments decide to do something typically. Their fallback plan is they're just going to regulate you. Possibly put you out of existence because that's how they control the market. It is the inescapable conversation today. Let me just read you the the links at the top of the drudge report right now trump ask Ukraine president if you can look into Biden son in phone call push to work with Giuliani Bar Intel officials referred activity to DOJ criminal inquiry declined George Conway. That's Kellyanne husband. Predicts Republicans vote against trump on impeachment. Senate passes is unanimous resolution demanding WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE BATTLE Looms Washington Post Lead Wedneday removal of US ambassador in Ukraine latest twist list more Democrats back impeachment to seven counting Andrew Johnson Bill Clinton and trump freshmen. These allegations are threat to all. We have sworn to protect ex- Napolitano is it a crime president will now go to war against intelligence community inquiry cast spotlight on spy chief. Pelosi Tepid no more witch hunt don't garbage risky trump meeting with Ukraine president high wire act but wait. There's more impeachment twenty nineteen only fourth north and history transcripts. You can read it for yourself. Oh boy we're not going to be able to escape. This are we. The problem here really is though with the Republicans in the Senate if the Republicans in the Senate let me just jump back to my analysis from yesterday was based on talking to Republicans. They've made a couple of calculations calculation. One one is that the White House is in play that they do have a shot calculation to is that there is no way the houses play calculation three is the Senate is safe life and calculation for is that they'll preserve enough state legislatures to draw favorable lines for redistricting. If the variables that form those calculation start to change then everything else is off and in particular the polling if the American people turn against the president on this and the polling goes deeply against the Republicans then they will turn on the president until Republicans are convinced. The public is against the president then the Republicans will not be against the president. It is a political calculation. You can say it's right. You can say it's wrong. You can say it's the law you can say high crimes and misdemeanors. All Oh you want to you're blue in the face but the reality is impeachment is politically impeachment is not a trial per se. It is not an judicial branch. It is in the political branch. It is in the most political branch and the Republicans will not change their view of impeachment until the political forces change range and the political forces will be pulled tested changes are Republicans in Republican states going wobbly more particularly are Republicans in swing in district's going wobbly. Let's bring this all the way back into Georgia now. Lucy MC bath in the sixth congressional district behind the scenes. People have been insane. Lucy Macbeth wanted to come out for impeachment and she never did. It's telling that she hasn't actually done anything related to impeachment each men in fact yesterday. A bunch of reporters tried to get her on record and she ran away from them. She didn't want to go on record with them Democrats. I think there's become an echo chamber between Progressive Democrats and reporters because Progressive Democrats and reporters are saying you know the moderates are coming on board the moderates the the freshman moderates there. They want impeachment. They want to impeach the president. Let let's impeach the president the moderates okay. It's very interesting that the moderate Democrats are in hiding right now. It doesn't appear that they are aligned up with what the Democrats have said in the past. It doesn't appear that the moderate Democrats are fully fully on board with the spin from the media that the moderates are now ready to get the president certainly some more have but not all of them and in fact you've got people like loosen Macbeth in a district that leans Republican but she wanted in two thousand eighteen who she's gone into hiding. She doesn't want to talk to the reporters at all. That deeply suggests the reality is that the Democrats are not fully on board impeachment as they had been so what's going to happen now is Pelosi. They're not doing a select committee. They're not putting all the chairman on committee. They're not putting one committee together to look at all of this. They're letting the committees do their work. As usual and in leading the committees do either work as usual what the Democrats are doing this going on a fishing expedition and they're going to try their best to find evidence that the president needs to be impeached and if they can find the evidence that the president needs to be impeach then they will go for but will they because right now. What they've got is not good for the president but I would argue. It's not impeachable for the president. It's certainly looks like the president wanted Ukraine to look into Joe Biden but you know he's the chief. Law Enforcement Officer of the country is the chief executive officer of the country. He can ask a foreign government to see if they were pressured to do something by a former president or vice president for corrupt purposes and the president does believe that Joe Biden was doing this to help hunter bite and he really he does believe there was a corrupt purpose well then he's got a legitimate reason to look into it whether you agree with him or not. He's got a legitimate reason. It doesn't look good for the president though if he did withhold money I would argue. It's impeachable but we're not there yet with this. There is still time to shape the situation and the Democrats are GONNA do their best to shape it but will the public even care with an election coming coming next year. It's cutting into your exercise time it stabbing you in the back nine and it's attacking your peace.

Oh, this is a story that I kind of stumbled across and it involves a, a democrat. Well, a woman who won a GOP, formerly held GOP seat in, in north North Carolina.

And she the, the woman, she was a woman named Karen Handel of Republican, and she lost her seat. Back in twenty. AT and like the lot of lot of it was me to in two thousand eighteen. Right. A lot of. Attention paid to what women were going through. And this woman in particular had gone through a lot because her teenage son, Jordan days. Davis was senselessly shot to death while working at a gas station. And so, you know, so she ran on gun control, and on, on focusing on gun control and health care in the ads that you ran against your opponent, who had been against any kind of gun legislation and also a Trumper and. Republicans ran these scare tactics. Trying to tie MacBeth. You know, again, too Nancy Pelosi, the GOP's favored, boogie woman and the attacks fell flat. And MacBeth one despite the fact Republicans had long held the seat. She cared it by two point margin and Trump had won that area by two point margin in two thousand sixteen and she wanted big anyway. So now the national national Republicans are working hard to get MacBeth out. So, so you got it. So you got handle the woman that was there before, and MacBeth, who is there now MacBeth ran on, on not the fact that her son had been murdered, but it was known as part of her background background in made her politically active is that there's a lot of people I mean, I need to know. John is pretty good. John Walsh, was the guy who was from America's most wanted me and his son was taken killed, and decapitated in Florida thirty some years ago and you know. It does.

"Hey, should be impeached. That makes a big difference. And I challenge the Republicans read aren't report, but, you know, here's the thing about that. I wanna see I wanna hear Muller tell it because I'm a TV person and most Americans are, yeah. They would like to say come from the horse's mouth. What did you put in that report? I want on television. That's another thing why is Donald junior. In a closed testimonies. Why isn't he on till I don't mind Muller, but I want to hear from the underlying wins. I want to hear from Mcgann I wanna hear from Trump junior, I wanna hear from everyone. That was the difference during the Nixon hearing, they didn't just hear from the lawyer that issued the report, they heard from everyone else that will change of heard from this is the new thing that we hear from everybody. And now suddenly. No one really quick. Rough Nater got Bush elected. Yeah, I know. But it went to the Republicans, not the Democrats when Ralph Nader was largest this. I know Bush. And if you're using mashes an example, as a libertarian, running, and just in a mosh, by the way, is a hard core libertarian. I mean he is a I've already my husband is a libertarian, I have a ton of friends that are libertar- the small very fervent political group of people in the country and they are disciples to him. So I think that some of this motivated for the reason you said of him, and ultimately running for president is going to be interesting because he a political hot topic really happy. Oh, yes. I'm very happy about Sabrina Fulton. The mother of Trayvon Martin announced that she is going to run for commission seat. Miami Dade County, Florida now it's great.

"Founded by black lives matter. Co-founder leash Garza h impose the executive director national domestic workers alliance and former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards who joins us now in our studio. Cecile welcome back to democracy. Now first time in this position as one of the heads of super majority, but one of founders, I think there's like so many women now are coming out of the woodwork to do this work. So explain what you're doing. So well, you know, I spent twelve years at Planned Parenthood organizing around instead of issues, particularly reproductive, health and healthcare access. My my colleagues Elise Jan been doing the same work with different groups of women, and we realized that actually there even millions more women that we haven't organized and are particularly since this election, but raising their hand and saying I want to do more. I've never been physically. Engage. I've never been politically involved. And so. We've spent the last few months actually travel around the country listening to women about what they need him want and what they want. They want to be activists at I think there is a as you saw on the video. There is a sense that women are doing we're the majority of voters. Fifty four percent of women are voters last election. Where women were the volunteers were increasingly the donors increasingly the candidates, and it's time for political equity. So that's the idea behind supermajority. We want to build a multi-racial intergenerational movement to increase women's power political power in civic engagement. He's talked about a new deal for women. Well, that's what I think. And I think at least I would say the same which is, you know, women again, do most the work around political campaigns and candidates, and yet the issues that women talk to us about on the road, the lack of affordable childcare in the United States. The fact that maternal mortality rates are at epidemic levels. The fact that equal pay gets a lot of lip service. But we never actually make progress. These are issues that we believe need to be front and center of any political campaign. And although I'm so grateful that there are so many women running for president raising this issues, they need to be raised by anybody who wants to be president United States. Have you come up with the title supermajority? I guess it's just that women aren't just the majority. I think women have superpowers, and they've been expressing that and showing that and I think actually I think it's kind of caught on. And in fact, just we launched a week ago. And we've now had more than eighty thousand folks. Sign up. And that's before we really even begin to get on the road. So I feel like there's a real need and interest in the country, particularly among women who want to become better activists more effective actress they wanted to what other women are doing and how they can support them as well one turn to Alicia Garza site, lease at least as way, so we weren't able to bring her on with you today, at least Garza co founder of black lives matter in two thousand seventeen she spoke on democracy now about how women of color must be included in political organizing, especially against sexual assault and harassment. Polity is women of color. Immigrant. Women. Black women who are low wage workers are extremely vulnerable to this kind of abuse in violence, and frankly, because of the lack of protections that exist, or to be honest marginalization that these communities already experienced in our society in our economy, and in our democracy. There really is not only not conversation about the prevalence in which this is happening to women of color and immigrant women in the service industry. But there's also not a lot of conversation about what the solutions look like outside of criminalising, the perpetrators or the survivors themselves since very important black lives. Black lives matter co-founder Alicia Garza, who's one of the co founders of this new organization with Cecile Richards, and Jen poo called super majority. So how do you? Organized this multi racial coalition. I mean when it came to voting in two thousand sixteen wasn't it something like sixty two percent of white women voted for President Trump that actually I don't think that is the number, but definitely a plurality of of white women voted for President Trump. And I do look I think that this is work that women want to do not only to learn how to be better activists to work across issues, but also to work across race lines. Because I think there is a real recognition among a lot of white women is that, you know, we're not that we cannot continue to rely on women of color to save this country or save us from ourselves. And it is important that we do this work as well and intentionally in multiracial way, and one of the things I I've been organizer went whole life, Amy. And so this is to me, very important and exciting moment where I'm seeing women across the country in midwestern states and south western. States come into rooms with women. They've never met before and say, this is the most exciting thing I've ever been able to do is actually meet with women who also care passionately at the same issues. I do and we need to do this work together. And I can't I'm so glad you had the clip from. I think she's one of the most phenomenal leaders in this country. And I John as well. But there are thousands and thousands more. And that's really what we're seeking to do is to make sure that these women's voices are being lifted up that they're feeling that the power supported, and they could be active in getting other women involved. What will be the role of union supermajority -education funds? Leadership committee includes Mary Kay, Henry the international president of SEI, you how will you reach into union. Well, it's of course, I came out of the labor movement. So I have enormous respect for the work that the labor movement doing petroleum and the teachers movement as we know there have been wildcat strikes by teachers overwhelmingly or women across the. Country teachers are striking today. It's just I mean, if it's like, it shouldn't be on the public school teachers of this country to save the public education system, but this is where we see over and over again women basically taking action where government is failing them. And so absolutely the teachers the labor unions. They also majority of these organizations are women, and they wanna walk work across issue lines as well. And and I'm really grateful to Mary Kay for being an important leader in not only the labor movement understanding that we can build the power women across this country. I wanted to ask you about a comment of the new head of the NRA. Caroline madams. She's there because Oliver North was just ousted. She apologized after coming under fire for attacking fellow Georgian democratic freshman, congress member Lucy MC bath who lost her son to gun violence a few years ago, Jordan Davis, and Florida he was a teenager who was shot dead when he was sitting in a car in a gas station parking lot. Who said the reason Lucy MacBeth one was not because she was anti-gun. But because she was a minority female in your thoughts. Well, of course, that was one of the worst. There's so many things about this. Obviously, let me go back. Lucie MacBeth is a national hero. The fact that a woman who went through what she did lost her child, and then committed herself to addressing the criminal Justice system in this country is phenomenal. And the fact that she's in congress is is so fantastic. Of course, she was elected in a majority Anglo district. She was not elected because she was a woman of color. But frankly, despite the fact that she was a woman of color, and I think it is enormous testament to her to her candidacy to her leadership, and it's also a testimony to the important role that Stacey Abrams is playing and has played in the state of Georgia to increase participation of of all people, but petroleum. Color, and because you open the topic of Georgia, which I hope we'll talk about it in a minute. Because this outrageous Bill that has been a now signed by the governor if I spent time with enjoy Joe with with Stacy, obviously, if every person in that state had been allowed to vote, and if they're voted been counted, Stacey Abrams would be governor today and would be serving as well as having Lucy MacBeth in congress. Well, let's talk about what just happened in Georgia. The Republican governor who beat Stacey Abrams Brian camp who was secretary of state, and she has sued over his both remaining secretary of state in charge of the elections and running for governor. But the Republican governor Bryant campus signed into law a six week abortion ban. Or so called fetal heartbeat law at bans abortions once fetal heartbeat can be detected something that typically happens just six weeks into pregnancy. And before many women realize they're pregnant this is Ken speaking at the signing of the Bill on Tuesday. The life is very simple. But also, very powerful declaration that all life has that all life matters. And it all life is worthy of.

But in the that was the special election in the Twenty-eight teen Karen Handel loses to Lucy MacBeth. The problem is doesn't live in the district. Well, that's actually allowed to be a member of congress from state. You don't actually have to live in the district that you represent. It's pretty weird thing. So I don't live in for example, Representative Andre Carson's district settled down. I I'm a little busy right now. Maybe the future she doesn't live in the district. The problem is she doesn't live in the state. And that's the story and the Republicans saying you don't live here. And she's like, yeah. Whatever you don't live here. And she's like, what are you talking about? So they sent her gift basket, the Republican party in Georgia. Center a gift basket to which she signed for via FedEx, but it was sent to her home in Rockford, Tennessee. She signed four the gift basket at her home delivery location, Rockford Tennessee, and they published the receipt with the signature that is. Yeah. Give it the applause.

It's Eric Erickson the full number is four zero four eight seven two zero seven five zero one eight hundred WSB talk, I need to praise John Lewis. John Lewis congressman civil rights hero from Georgia has legislation. It passed the house representatives unanimously the media is crying foul over it. And what the legislation does is it prohibits the IRS from developing an online or software based tax program. Like turbo tax. So the IRS would not be allowed to provide to citizens a computer program that would allow them to do their taxes. You will be required to pay turbo taxation are block or what have you? If you want someone to do taxes, and I say, God bless him for doing this. The media say, oh, this is a protection scheme the IRS. The government should not be able to to compete with the private sector because you allow the IRS to produce a tax application package while the IRS is drafting regulations, and you and I both know the IRS is going to be even more convoluted and pass even more burdensome regulations that require even more people to have to use something to prepare their taxes. I am vehemently opposed to the existing tax code. I am vehemently opposed to the complications added by the IRS regulations. And I am vehemently opposed to a government that has convoluted the tax system being able to produce something that competes with the private sector. That's going to do a better. Anyway. All the are doing is trying to hurt a private sector that has been able to Wade through and spend money developing programs to deal with the convoluted tax system. I say God bless John Lewis for saying this is nuts. The the federal government should not be able to compete with the private sector, the private sector has delivered great software programs, and you know, what you can deduct the cost. I think that's still the tax code. You can deduct the cost of having to use use the program. Least it used to be in the next. I think it's still in the tax code. You can you can deduct these fees should be in the tax code. I I'm just I totally re with him on this. And he and others are getting blow. You know? What's so interesting is they're blaming Republicans for this. They're actually saying this is various Republican plot from the Republican Senate, and they got poor old John Lewis that they they convinced him to do this. No, no, John Lewis. He and I may disagree on a lot of things. But he also understands what happens when you lead the government in charge of these things so praised to him God blessing good for him and the and the house for passing this unanimously now to the phones Bob in Tucker, you're up next. Welcome. This Lucy MC bath thing that I've read been reading about has made me mad as hell. She lives in Tennessee. And there was a lawsuit revenge her from running to represent the Georgia district, but she ran out the clock. It it seems like Georgia should be able to just check boot her out of the house and individual. What can be done? You know, you you do have to file the lawsuit before the this is the problem. They waited too late to file the lawsuit last time they needed to file it after she qualified, and they waited until she became the nominee. And there is a legal doctrine that prohibits you from waiting that long. Once once she was on the ballot and was the nominee. You can't go CEO a way way, she she she we didn't think she could win. But now that she's run. Hey, she should have been disqualified note, you gotta do at the moment. She's just qualify the moment, she qualifies, and I wonder if there's going to be a challenge this coming. Time. I do I I really wonder if they will be able to make the challenge in this coming election given that in for those who don't know if you weren't here. The first hour the Republican party sit loosened MacBeth a package by their FedEx or UPS one that required for her to sign for the package. They sent it to her Tennessee residential address and she signed for the back is not her husband, not family, not neighbors. She herself sign for it. Which again suggests fairly certainly that she lives in Tennessee. So maybe they'll challenge at this time.

"All right. The full number four zero four eight seven two zero seven five zero one eight hundred WSB talk, Ohio the state of Ohio. It's legislature in the last thirty minutes has passed fetal heartbeat legislation. Just like Georgia passed. Wonder how their film industry is going to do. I bet it'll will not do nearly as good as Georgia's why? Because Georgia has better tax credits than Ohio has when it comes to those sorts of things. Now, what are we going to talk about? I know what we're going to talk about. We're going to talk about Lucy MC bath. Because I just find this hilarious Lucic bath beat Karen Handel Karen Handel, by the way is going to run again, she's gotten a number of endorsements. Elusive MC bath is. Now, the congresswoman gun control activists, social Justice activist. She's actually very personally personally. Nice. I've been in several green rooms with her. But her politics are very very very to the left. Not really a good fit for district. Actually, her district was just overreacting to Trump and the RNC bailed on a ground game to help the Republicans. That's not gonna they're not gonna make that mistake in twenty twenty make bath, though, doesn't actually live in Georgia. She lives into the sea. And she comes. She gives a place in the district. She keeps place in the distribution and really live there and the Republican National Committee or the Republican party, Tennessee one. I'm not sure which baby the Republican party, Georgia one of them. They sent a big package of Tennessee stuff. Tennessee barbecue in all to Lucy Macbeth's house into nece- and guess who signed for the back edge loosened MacBeth so on the weekend in Tennessee at her house, Lucy MacBeth signed for her package of Tennessee barbecue, which begs the question of does she really live in Georgia. You know, Comcast he rejected her homestead exemption, meaning Cobb County doesn't believe she lives in Cobb County. I think she's gonna do something. I listen local media in Georgia is dying. We have the we have WSB. There's not a lot left and there's only so much bandwidth for local media. And I talk about this Lucy Bessarabia, even I have to talk about other stuff. If I talked about Lucy MacBeth every single day and not living in the state, people get bored. But there isn't a ton of coverage of this issue in there should be more from other media outlets. Besides myself, she really doesn't live in Georgia. If it just ask yourself this e even about local media outlets here in Georgia. If Lucy bath were a Republican. Do you not think this would be bigger news that a care package was sent to her in Tennessee? And she sign on her husband nut children, not not a other relatives. Not not not parents. Not a brothers sisters note. It it's her she signed for it. At her home intimacy. I suspect that it would be a huge huge story. If a Republican did that I really do. And I think it is an example of the media oftentimes being very sympathetic to Democrats in ways, they aren't with Republicans. I mean, look at the coverage gingered in has gotten from the state Senate. My goodness almost every single day. There's some glowing profile of how she's testified before congress. She's done this. I can't think of another politician who has gotten as much coverage. And by the way, notice how the local media in Atlanta is given the white lady all the favorable coverage. You've got all sorts of diverse cast of characters in the state legislature. You got Stacey Abrams out there are they thinking. Oh, well, we've given too much. We gotta find a white female democrat to give coverage to. I think the media place favorites even locally and people are starting to realize it. Blue. Jerry Erickson and Atlanta's evening news the full number four zero four eight seven two zero seven five zero one eight hundred WSB talk. Let me read you a tweet Trump's refusal to concede the election. If he loses proves he is a petty man uninterested in our national stability. Stacey Abrams tweeted that. Stacey Abrams tweeted that Stacey Abrams a woman who refuses to concede the election from twenty eight thousand tells people she one tells people that she was robbed. She tries to make two very different competing claims one that there was historically high turnout that she turned out record numbers of people. And yet the vote was suppressed. Nobody calls for that. 'cause she raised. If you do nobody wants to call her on that. Her refusal to concede. So can I run a theory by you? And who knows I mean, maybe the moment I stopped talking she'll come out and declare for the Senate improved be wrong. But I actually the more. I think about it think that Stacey Abrams is going to run for the presidency and not the Senate. Let me Ray out. I think by the way, I think if I were her consultant, I would advise her to do that. And I think she's smart enough to understand the dynamics here. Let me explain it to you. So if Stacey Abrams runs for the US Senate, she really won't have anybody running against her the democratic primary they'll all run away because they know what will happen to him. Look what happened to Stacy Evans. So she'll be the democratic nominee in one of two things will happen if Stacey Abrams runs for the Senate. She will either win or she will lose. Now that sounds trite superficial non deep analysis but bear with me here if Stacey Abrams runs for the Senate, and she wins probably means President Trump loses. Because if Abrahams wins the Senate in Georgia, the Democrats probably win Georgia in the electoral college for the presidency. Same dynamics there if not even more passion against the president. So Stacey Abrams is able to drive people out. So that she can overcome David Purdue who's fairly will like to the state then that means. Is that the president probably is toast that then puts democrat in the White House. What Stacey Abrams really really wants is to be governor. Well, one it puts you in an awkward position of why are you kidding the seat after two years to run for governor? But he even if you give her a pass on that it puts the Democrats at a disadvantage because remember the party out of the White House is the party that benefits in the off year election. So Stacey Abrams would be a democrat with a democratic president trying to run for governor in Georgia and the Republicans would be more motivated, and you would have a bigger Republican wave suburbs would turn back to the GOP. I mean, don't don't discount me on this one off your elections benefit the party at a power. And so it would put her at a real disadvantage to run against Brian keeps relection. But if Stacey Abrams loses hurston at race, then she suddenly vulnerable. She's one she's run to statewide races. And she's lost them both. There are a lot of Democrats who already resent Stacey Abrams. They never liked to begin with. And they will begin to come out of the woodwork. She lost the governor's race. She lost the Senate race. She can't be the nominee in twenty twenty two. It would scrap her chances immediate would really hurt her. She would would be in a dogfight if she even ran in twenty twenty two if she lost a Senate race. But what happens if she runs for president will going into it? Everyone would generally. No, she's not in it to win it. So she wouldn't get tarred with this perennial candidate stuff that a lot a lot of gain is where they keep running running running do she she would be the message gated she'd be running for the cause. And so she would be forgiven by democratic voters for running for the cause. Ause 'cause she would be other attacking anybody else. She just be other running for voting rights and civil rights and and black lives matters. And whatever else. And so they would forgive her that. And in the process, she could fundraise and who knows maybe maybe somebody named your vice presidential pick. No downside to that. And if not in twenty twenty two she's built a reward chest. She's built up her name ID. She's replaced Beto a Rourke in the eyes of the media, and they come in and twenty twenty two and give her nonstop wall. To wall coverage. Makes sense to me. I think that's why she declares for president or nothing at all. And she sits back and says she's gonna wait for twenty twenty two. I I don't know that running for for the Senate really helps Abrahams. If she loses there's tremendous downside, if she wins you'd have to explain to your later why she wants to walk away from that job. In would be that would probably be a democrat would be the White House and that would hurt her too. So I expected to run for president or do nothing and just fundraising complain and try to hurt Brian Kemp over the next three years, I want to just transition dramatically here to non-political story. The black hole. People have the scientists have taken a picture of the black hole. Looks like my heart. It is it is a phenomenal scientific accomplishment. It is essentially fifty eight million years old the picture were seen because of the speed of light. It's just y'all. I'm I'm fascinated by this, and you should be too it. It is an amazing accomplishment. Even if you even if you're not into size. You don't understand is that amazing accomplishment? Scientists around the world were able to synchronize radio telescopes globally to continue zooming in on a particular spot of the center of a galaxy far far away. And they got us in image of something that was a longtime ago in a galaxy far far away is just it's astonishing what they were able to do. And you know, it turns out that Christopher Nolan in the interstellar movie actually did a really good job of capturing what? A black hole. Should look like if you'll watch the interstellar movie, it's it's it's kind of hard to comprehend. It's not my favorite Christopher Nolan movie. But they they worked and talked to a lot of scientists to try to get an idea of what a black hole would look like to the human eye. And now we've got a picture in reality of what a black hole looks like it looks pretty doggone close to it. Christopher Nolan and his CGI artists came up with based on talk into scientists. It is a it looks like a Donut a lit up doughnut with with a very black hole in the center, and it is a fascinating too. I mean, you cannot understate the level of accomplishment in coordination to be able to get all of these different scientists and all of these different radio telescopes to all look at the same spot in the sky and produce that picture. I'm just I could go on about it there really is nothing more to say other than I am absolutely amazed by it, and you should be to there. There is other news Bloomberg is reporting that Herman canes nomination for the Federal Reserve has run into trouble. Only. One more Republican Senator needs to come out against him for his nomination debt. Not have the votes hermit. Apparently. In a video said that his vetting process would be cumbersome. Bloomberg is suggesting his nomination is actually a trial balloon and the president may withdraw. I do not know I have not talked to Herman or the president on this, but is very striking Mitch McConnell. The Senate majority leader has refused to endorse Herman's nomination for the Federal Reserve. And now you've got McAliskey from Alaska Cory Gardner from Colorado. Both coming out saying they are opposed a John thune the number two Republican in the Senate saying that he doesn't know that the votes are there and even the Alabama Senator Richard Shelby Republican. Saying he's not sure that he will vote for Herman. So, but you know, he hasn't had a chance to go to Washington yet to knock on doors and meet with members of congress and sell them that he actually is capable of doing the job. But it seems like the Democrats want to go on a fishing expedition from the allegations that surfaces in the twenty twelve campaign. So the Democrats have nothing else want to use it as an opportunity to embarrass him. If he wants to go through the fight and go through the confirmation hearings for that. God bless him. Keep him in your prayers, the Democrats just want to embarrass the president. If they can bears another Republican candidate, it appears they could as well. But it is very striking to see several Republicans come out and say, they're not so sure. Hello

"Globe. And here in the United States women are on fire. So recent hires poll reported that since our last presidential election in two thousand sixteen one in five Americans have either marched or taking part in protests, and the number one issue has been women's rights. Women are starting new organizations they are volunteering on campaigns. And they're taking on every issue from gun safety reform to public education and women are running for office in record numbers, and they are winning. So. Women women's like, Lucy MC bath from Georgia. Lucie, lost her son to gun violence, and it was because of her experience with the criminal Justice system that she realized just how broken it is. And she decided to do something about that. So she ran for office in this January. She's going to congress. Okay. Or? Angie crag for Minnesota. So her congressman had made such hateful comments about LGBTQ people that she decided to challenge him. And you know, what she did? And she won. And when she goes to congress in January, she'll be the first lesbian mother serving in the house of representatives. Okay. Are Lauren Underwood from Illinois? She's a registered nurse, and she sees every day the impact of lack of healthcare access has on the community where she lives and so she decided to run she took on six men in her primary. She beat them all she won the general election when she goes to congress in January, she's going to be the first African American woman ever to serve district in Washington DC, right? Women are recognizing this is our moment. And don't wait for permission. Don't wait for your turn as the late. Great. Shirley, Chisholm said, Shirley, Chisholm, the first African American woman ever to go to congress and the first woman to run for president and the Democratic Party, but Shirley, Chisholm said. If there's no room for you at the table just pull up a folding chair. Right. And that's what women are doing all across all across the country. I believe women are now the most important and powerful political force in the world. But how do we make sure that this is not just a moment? What we need is actually a global movement for women's full equality that is intersectional, and it's intergenerational where no one gets left behind. And so I have a few ideas about how we could do that number one. It's not enough to resist. It's not enough to say what we're against. It's time to be loud. And proud about what we are for because being for full equality is a mainstream value and something that we can get behind because actually men support equal pay for women Baleno, they support gender equality and businesses are increasingly adopting family friendly policies. Not just because it's the right thing to do because it's good for their workers. It's good for their business. Number two. We have to remember in the words of Fannie Lou Hamer that nobody's free till everybody's free. So as I mentioned earlier women of color in this country didn't even get the right to vote till much further along than the rest of us. But since they did they are the most reliable voters and women of color are the most reliable voters for candidates who support women's rights, and we need to follow their lead. All right. Their issues are issues, and as white women, we have to do more because racism, and sexism, homophobia, these are issues that affect all of us. Number three. We got a vote in every single election every election, and we gotta make it easier for folks to vote, and we gotta make sure that every single vote is counted, okay. The barriers that that exist to voting in the United States. They fall disproportionately on women women of color women with low incomes women who are working and trying to raise a family. So we need to make it easier for everyone to vote and we can start by making election day a federal holiday in the United States of America. Number four. Don't wait for instructions if you see a problem that needs fixing I think you're the one to do it. Okay. So whether. So right. It's just start a new organization run for office. Or maybe it's as simple as standing on the job and supportive yourself or your co workers, this is up to all of us and number five invest in women. All right. Invest in women as right invested limit as candidates as change makers as leaders just as an example in this last election cycle, the United States women donated one hundred million dollars more to candidates and campaigns than they had just two years ago and a record number of women one. So just think about that. So. Look sometimes I think the challenges we face they seem overwhelming. And they seem like they're almost can never be solved. But I think it's those problems that seem the most intractable the ones that are most important to work on. And just because it hasn't been figured out yet doesn't mean you won't after all if women's work were easy. Someone else would have already been doing it. Right. But women around the globe. They're on the move, and they are taking strength and inspiration. From each other. They are doing things they never could have imagined. So we could just take the progress we have made enjoying the workforce and joining business and joining the educational system and actually channel that into building true political power, we will reshape this century because one of us can be ignored two of us can be dismissed. But together, we're a movement and we're unstoppable. Thank you. Thank you. For more TED talks, go to Ted dot com. We take most things for granted. Like our morning coffee.
