Martha Zoller: The Early Voting Looks Good for Herschel Walker
"You would think that he would have done well in those red areas so that he could campaign in places like metro Atlanta and pick up some of those independent voters. If you look at the map by county, basically from I 20 south, he only ran two points behind Brian Kemp. From I 20 north, not counting the metro counties, but like when you get up into north Georgia in hall county in Dawson county and Cherokee county and union county and oconee county and Walton county, he ran like 6 points behind governor Kemp, all the rest of the counties up there he ran about four points behind. So he had a lot of work to do, but gosh, the early voting looks good, and then tomorrow they're predicting rain. So I don't know what that'll do to the turnout. But we'll just have to see. But I think we'll know fairly early how this is going to come out. Like 10 o'clock. So Martha, so people in those counties, they went and they voted for Brian Kemp, but are you saying they did not vote for rehearsal walker? Right. That's correct. Wow, any indication, I mean, has the campaign been given any indication why that is and what they need to fix that for this runoff? Well, there were roughly 200,000 voters that did not vote for Herschel Walker that voted for Brian Kemp. But the gap between walker and Warnock was only 35,000 votes. And you know, if I'm Rafael Warnock and I out my opponent four to one, and I only got 35,000 of those more, I would be unhappy about that. He knows that he's got an uphill battle both Warnock and walker. Polls are saying 52, 48, but ten years ago, we had three week runoff the last several. They've been 9 week runoffs. I don't think anybody knows what a four week runoff looks like Todd. So what I'm saying is get out the vote. It's in your polling place that you have to vote. It's not where the early voting was. Get out and vote. Don't assume your neighbor is going to do it. Get out and vote and bring your Friends and neighbors with you.
Martha Zoller: Historically Supporting Donald Trump
"A never trumper. Is that true, Martha zalar? Are you a never trumper? I voted for Donald Trump twice during both elections. I had every person on. I have defended him. But you know what? There's a few things he's done that I don't agree with. And I'm going to call it out when it happens. So if that makes me an ever trumper than I am, but I don't think so. Oh, no, it does, Martha, and I speak from experience here. If you, if you say, oh, his hair looks a little messed up today. You're automatically a leftist, who hates America. So and the thing is, I stopped believing in the people I vote for a long time ago. I am not, you know, I want them to vote the right way and do the right thing. And I stuck with Donald Trump for a very long time over that. I'm not saying I'm not with him now, but what I'm saying is when you say things like he wants to suspend the constitution, that's a problem for me.
Caller Calls Martha Zoller a 'Never-Trumper'
"It's just amazing to me that we're missing the whole picture. I mean, our Secretary of State that could have overturned the election that has been after Trump since day one that is still flaunting his recorded phone call of trying to go after him. And now he's against Herschel. I mean, the fix is in in Georgia. And one more point, as far as going along with the sweet lady they called a minute ago, Martha Zoller, I listen to her every morning just to find out which what the other side's thinking. I mean, she's the biggest never trumper I've ever heard in my opinion. Well, she's going to be on this program coming up, and I have. So you say she's an ever trumper. What's your evidence of that? Well, it's generally just listening to her. It's my opinion that she's not she would be much more on the perhaps at the stand aside. The much more mainstream Republican, the good old boy system. And it's just my opinion. And then again, you listen to her. She's generally got the Democrats on that she's agreeing with. She's a she seems to be. And it's something you might ask her about. She's a big proponent of pajama boy. And I can't recall his name at the moment. Pajama boy. All right. So Jason, okay,
Republican Geoff Duncan Calls Herschel Walker a Terrible Candidate
"Big election day in the state of Georgia, Rafael Warnock and Herschel Walker going at it. Just about every headline I've seen is very discouraging for Republicans. And look, at the end of the day, we will know by tomorrow. Who won the day? But my concern is a very real concern. We're going to be talking with Martha Zoller from W D UN in just a little while. But my concern is about getting out the vote. Tomorrow, you're going to have bad weather, but you got to still get out, you got to go vote. Beyond that, I'm very concerned about the establishment Republicans in Georgia and whether or not they will try and sabotage the election. You say, well, Tom, what are you talking about? Well, the lieutenant governor of Georgia, a guy by the name of Jeff Duncan, is out there, and he's saying that he didn't vote for Herschel Walker. He calls Herschel Walker a terrible candidate. Take a listen. Earlier, today, CBS News congressional correspondent Nicole Killian discussed the runoff election with the lieutenant governor of Georgia. The Republican explained why he decided not to vote for fellow party member, Herschel Walker. I'm a conservative. I'm a conservative because I think it's the best way to govern. I've been a Republican a lot longer than a lot of folks. I think I've got kids probably that could articulate the conservative platform better in some of the candidates that Donald Trump and his group supported all across the country. This wasn't the right brand for republicanism. And I think Herschel Walker will probably go down as one of the worst Republican candidates in our party's history. All right, and that was not just some random Republican. That's the lieutenant governor of the state of Georgia, whose out there effectively campaigning against the party's nominee. What in the world are you folks doing in the state of Georgia?

Go ahead, almost Lay it. Yeah, they could have started in May, like Trump was going to start in May before the major fighting season started and we have been out of there like they saw it coming. I don't see why they did not start a whole lot earlier. Getting if you're going to postpone to August 31st, and you ought to postpone to the next May. Absolutely, And there was no reason why we couldn't. There was an agreement, but they didn't go. They didn't follow the agreement, basically, so It was time for them to postpone and why they didn't We know he wanted all the glory on 9 11. Well, he got it a lot of booze wherever he went that day. Yeah, And it's It's so sad because you know women are being um, segregated, but they're protesting in the streets. And you know what? That is protesting where you really could get yourself killed. Okay. These these Whoa keys over here in the United States that think that things are so terrible. Uh, it's still news if people get killed in something like that. So you've got that going on.

"It's the Martha Zoller Show on AM by 50 and FM one. Oh 2.9 wdun. Hey, AOC, the little Communists from New York City, right? Yeah, Lock her up, too. That's a good idea. She's not an American. She really doesn't embrace our American ways. It's the Martha's All our show in Al, you know, Look, they had this big rally in Ohio and these kind of political rallies, people say. Stuff, right? They say things they don't really mean you know, because they're trying to get the crowd all whipped up. I You know if this bothers me because I just don't think the tit for tat Is the way to get things done. Okay, So so she's challenged Margie Taylor greens challenged a R C to a debate on Showtime and or on some other network. And, um, uh, AOC kind of, you know, answered back and forth with some taller than she is or something like that. I don't know what that means. But it's one thing. I think the line about her being a comedy is funny, Okay, but you know, she's not American. Really. You know, that goes a little too far. And that's what happens at these rallies. People go one step too far. Yeah, I think I think she probably is a Communist, but at the same time, I don't mind saying someone's a communist. That's but she's an American. She is an American. That was the step over the Yeah, yeah, for for Marjorie Taylor Green, and I think that that is going too far. And and I understand I understand what they were trying to accomplish. I just think that Um, what they're what's happening is there is there Is this attitude out there that we just want to be as cantankerous as possible. Now, people love Marjorie Taylor Green and I have I like her. I mean, when I've interviewed her, she talks about issues. She's not the persona you see, like at the rally, she talks about issues, which is great. She is a fundraising juggernaut. Okay, She is the highest level of fundraising of anybody on the Republican side. So people like what she's saying. It just makes me uncomfortable. She really needs to watch the rhetoric. Martha I I really think she can be even more effective if she is, if she controls her brain and which controls our mouth. But can you break out of that mold? Whether it's AOC or it's Marjorie Taylor Green? I think, Marjorie I really think Marjorie has something to offer. Okay? Last week when she was talking about the language in the infrastructure bill that was saying women were a, uh, I forget the word that they used an underclass or disadvantage that women were disadvantaged and she is the primary or one of the principal owners of her construction company that does business in 11 states. And so she took issue with that, And I think that was a great issue. And look, I'm not going to agree with anybody. 100% of the time you're not going to agree with anybody. 100% of the time. I just think she has this unique opportunity to really make a difference because of the following that she has And you know she's finding her way. I'm not being too critical because she's finding her way right way, But But you're right. She has to learn how to channel it in the right direction and Obviously, Donald Trump likes her. A lot of she wouldn't have been doing what she did introducing him or at least on the stage last week, so I really do think. That she can make a strong impact in Congress. Over time, but she has to bide her time. Well, and I don't want her to do because the squad kind of came in with a bang in 2016. And now that people just kind of think they're ridiculous, Okay, they pander to them to some degree, but they kind of think even Nancy Pelosi thinks they're ridiculous. I don't want that to happen to her. It could. It could very well if she keeps this up. And I think I think she did a great great thing until she called her a non American. Yeah, and that was you know everything. She said that I heard was okay, except that when she said that I went I mean, my My gut just said, Yeah, it's around void that it's a real It's a rally. I do think the funniest thing that I've heard said about AOC is by taker Carlson because he calls her Sandy Cortez Because AOC s, uh, family just like lots of other families that have come to America to do better. When they got the money. They moved out of the Bronx and into to Westchester County. So she went to Westchester County. She went to the high schools up there, and she was known as Sandy during that period of time in her life, you know she had she was Sandy Cortez. And so he calls her that on the show, which I think is hysterical, because it shows her in a kind of funny way without being mean. Shows that she is really kind of a fraud and that she wants to act like she's sandy from the block, you know, or Jenny from the block like Jennifer Lopez, you know tries to do, but she really isn't her parents were the same as every other parent doesn't matter if they're black, White or brown. When they had the opportunity to get out and go to better schools. They did it and and and history shows that she was in the rich kid category. But but that's not how she comes across. So there's part of the fraud right there, Sandy yet Well, I'll tell you we need to keep calling her sandy to your So I mean, and I think that's that is one of the things and I think that Marjorie Taylor Green has has handled the situation where she moved into her district was originally she was not living in her district. When she got elected, she moved into her district. She kept most of the team that Tom Graves had to handle constituent services because we all know The most important even though everybody wants to see their Congress person on Fox News and whatever or on MSNBC, depending on what side of the aisle you're on. The fact of the matter is what makes you a good Congress, person or congressman or congresswoman is Your constituent services. Absolutely. I mean, that's what we can't forget. The work they're supposed to do absolutely is the follow up to the constituents of needs and wants and desires. And regardless of how crazy some of them I'm sure are. You still need to follow up and they that staff that Tom Graves had actually was a good staff? Very good staff. I mean, an Andrew Clyde has kept most of the staff that Doug Collins had, and I think it was a very good staff and And that constituent service side of.

"It is the Martha Zoller Show that was US Senator Raphael Warnock, who we have invited to be on the program at least five times. Not counting what we invited in the campaign, and we hear back occasionally from the people that work for him that you know he is busy or he can't be involved in it. He can't be on. Hopefully we will get him on. We've invite him again for next week, and hopefully we'll have him on because I'd love to hear what he has to say about this thing called before the People Act. Ron Heart is with me right now. He's a libertarian columnist. A very funny guy. And, you know, he looks at things in a different way. And maybe if more of us looked at it that way, we'd have a better sense of humor. Ron, How're you doing? Good morning. How are you? Good. So we had this vote yesterday on what's called the for the People Act, and it came down on partisan lines. It's another example of why the filibuster works because you don't want to have the Senate being knee jerk reaction to the news of the day. That is not The purpose of that. Right. It's the saucer that cools everything right. Suppose supposedly. Yeah, supposedly. Yeah. Before the people at without even reading it. I've got to vote for because it sounds a little bit like the affordable care act. What could go wrong? You know, And it goes back to trying to deal with the issues related to, um, who controls elections. And I think that with all the ups and downs in elections, and there have been many over the years, you know whether it was Garfield back in 18, 96 or Kennedy in 1960 or George Bush in 2000. There have been issues throughout the years. But the fact the reason why I feel better about elections is because local governments control them. Right, and most of statehouses are still controlled by Republicans. Most people are right of center to begin with. So you let you let Washington D C have at the heavy hand Washington D. C and you lose all control at the state level. That's the reason the founders did it that way. They don't want the other didn't want Washington seem to have too much power. That was the whole construct of the Constitution. You basically limit the powers of the federal government and invest in a lot of powers with the states of well, it should. You know, it's funny because the two years that I think were the worst for uh, the United States of America was 1 1913 when they made senators directly elected because when Senators were appointed by the legislatures, even though there could be corruption there to you, at least had a senator that was was beholden to the Legislature that appointed them and by Fiat of beholden to the state. Now they're just beholden to ever gives them the most money. And the second thing was 1966 when LBJ lumped all the Social Security and Medicare money into the general fund. There was never a lockbox like you know, good old Al Gore said, But at least the money was kept separate until 1966. Exactly did that a lot of really bad things. It's time to get people there that are unaccountable. They always blame the other person Everybody loves or congressman or the senator's. Everybody hates Congress in the Senate. So you know the alibi up there. They they are well in the same process. Pull the old swamp as it were, and they you know, they, you know, Republicans like the hot tubs and the limos and the free dinner just much the Democrats to be on the other a lot of soft Republicans up there as well, who can be bought? Sold. So you know the whole country right now, Ali, Enough comes down to this Joe Manchin of West Virginia. You know, he pretty much has the control levers of the whole country in one boat. In the Senate, you know, And it's certainly not a mandate that Biden and Kamala Harris have. It's clearly a very swim majority they need they need to govern that way. Just, you know, just basically keep them all in the fairway. Let's just be careful here is only to go way left away, right. The country is not with you. If you go way left on these issues. Well, you see it in the house to their within five seats of Of Republicans taking it over. So basically the house is 50 50 in the Senate is 50 50. And so that should say to you that you should keep it in the middle of the road, But that's not how they're reacting. But you mentioned blaming J. I love the old P. J. O Rourke quote Martha, he goes. It's not, You know, it's not the wonderment of how Washington Get things done. Dying is how to make them stop. That's right. I always say it's a good day in congressman, they're not in session. It's a good day for the American people. Now, um you mentioned blaming other people and we're going to bring it back home, which you've written a lot about this about the the crime in Atlanta. Keisha Lance bottoms. The outgoing mayor of Atlanta was blaming everybody this weekend on the crime problem, uh, that you know that actually Governor Kemp came in over the weekend with some resources that I guess Atlanta Police Department.

"Who would like to expand who could be on the vaccination list but says right now it is just not feasible. Scott Kimbler. Gee, and then news. It's morning Talk with Martha Zoller Rod. He was here with me today and good morning and Russell texted in its 775352911. When the government leans left, we'd better remember the steep cliff on the other side. Is the only guard rail and the only guard Willis the Constitution. Yeah, I agree with you about that getting back to vaccinations. I know one of the things they're talking about. Which I don't agree with. Is that if you go get your first shot They're setting aside the second shot so that you know that they'll be supply when they come in. Now. George is still doing that. But the federal government is saying, no, we're ramping up. Production so much that you don't have to do that. Well, my view is until you have actually Delivered some of that vaccine and shown that you've ramped up the production. I want him to hold hold that that second dose until they are for sure that the pipelines come in because I would hate for a bunch of people to get the first dose. And then they say, don't hold the second dose and then you give all those and then it comes time for that person have the second dose and it's not there. Yeah, because they say with you definitely have to have the second dose. Yeah, that the first will be null and void without it. So what happens it like you say, what happens when you run out or you don't have it? Do those people have to get back in line for the first dose? Take it all over again. Yeah, I think it's I think it's one of those things where you got to be careful. The Johnson and Johnson one has not been put forward for approval yet, but the data on it is encouraging, even though the overall efficacy rate is right around 70%, which is not what you would normally like if you dig down into the data. It's in the nineties as far as keeping people out of the hospital and keeping symptoms as low as possible, if if you do get Cove in, so I think that's that's a little bit of a different approach. But I think most people, you know, I don't think they mind so much being sick. I don't want to end up in the hospital with all the complications that you have, and the fear of dying. Of course, of course, you know, so, but one of the strangest things I heard the other day, one of the people that had Took the shot and they were like, I'm good Now. Now I can go around my family now can do this now. I don't think they totally understand it or get it. That's not the case. You still have to be careful that you don't hurt or infect other people because they're to my understanding this and that you still can be a carrier. Or you still can have it in, you know, While my sister is 72. She also is a like she works in admin at a surgery center. So She's a health care worker. But she's not like a frontline health care worker, but she works in the admin area. She had her second shot last Thursday. Starting feeling bad on Sunday. And, um and I thought, you know, she called me and I said, you know. Well, take some Advil. See how you feel in the morning. If you're over 100 a half, then go see your doctor. I mean, because that's That's basically the guidelines of what you have it and turn out. She had Cove it and s O. They're trying to trace it back now because because they do not give you the virus in the vaccine. It's a different kind of vaccine. It's is called NMR in a vaccine, so it just gives you the ability to keep the virus from duplicating if you get it. So, um, so they're going to trace it back, but probably she had been exposed before she started getting the shot. That's what I would think is well, especially with the information that we learned on last week. Yeah, I'm talking about that very thing. So it seems that maybe possibly right before or in that grace, period. That's what happened. Yes. Oh, but she's doing fine. And again, I'm seeing and You can see it in the dad on department of Public Health, but there is a little bit. It's not enough data to make a conclusive argument. But it does seem that men get it worse than women and African Americans in general, get it worse than non African Americans. There's there's other factors in that, like I've said many times before. It's probably gonna be 50 years. I think this is gonna be with us. This is a virus that's gonna be with us. It may eventually be like rhinovirus. Where doesn't bother you that much? Because we've got enough people that have had it. You know, there's 200 versions of rhinovirus used to be the common cold would kill people, but it doesn't kill people anymore. So It's one of those things we'll have.

It is appalling. It is six. Trillion dollars $6 Trillion. I remember when I first came to Washington in 1983 84. We passed the first I was working with Reagan. It's way past the Troy. Yeah, that's right amount that we passed the Trillion dollar budget. We're I called my God. We passed the trillion dollars Now. Here we are. 30 years later that one trillion $6 trillion how much the budget deficit is expected to be this year. Martha how much Were trillion. Oh my God. I mean, it's a Saturday, folks, and then it is crazy in the Democrats think they can get this done with every single without a single Republican boat. That they will get every single Democrat in the house, and every single Democrat in the Senate may need virtually everyone. As you know they thanks to Georgia. They have a one seat majority in the Senate, and they have lots of five or 6 ft majority in the House. There's a very slim majorities. But we will see. You know we're going to see over the next few months. Whether these even one single, sane, physically same Democrat in the entire Congress, Maybe the answer is no. Well, I tell you and I'm gonna thin toss it over to al. I mean, it is a 50 50 basically house a 50 50 senate and we are going to see it like that. 50.1% you know 50.1% in the Senate, right this minuscule, you know, majorities, and they will try to, you know, you know, Of course, the irony here. Doesn't seem like just yesterday, Joe Biden was pontificating about how we're all going to unite. And there was gonna be unity in Washington, and then they come up with their steam roller. They don't want unite. They want to steamroll right over every Republican and squash them like they're bugs so they can pass this insane, You know, Budget, which is a big give away the teachers unions to the environmental groups. Tolo. You know, there's there's Of course, the blue States. You know, the blue states will get $400 billion out of this. That's a lot of money. $400 billion to New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois, California. It's just maddening. The sins of what's going on in those blue states. Steve is just unconscionable and the six trillion I I'm just appalled as well. And the meeting yesterday that the 10 senators had with with by nip was really just for show. Nothing's gonna happen. And when you say unity when you say unity, Steve what That means it to the Democrats is Yeah, we're gonna unify as long as you do what I want to do. Meaning what? What the Democrats want to do. That's not unity. That's very divisive. They don't want unity. They want submission. That's good. That's a better word. So you know. Do you think any chance we could get one of your two Democratic senators to vote against us? No, they won't. They won't You know, I mean, Joe Manchin always talks a good line, but ultimately he ends up voting with the Democrats. But I do think I mean, I've heard him use language where he's pretty mad about some of these executive orders. He was. He's been a lot more forceful, but we'll see when he votes, right? Yeah, you know, Look, I know Joe Mansion. I like the man. I think he's you know, he's a good good American, but You know, he thankfully, he's night. Never never there when you really need him, you know, I mean, he talks a good game. This will really define Joe Manchin. Is he really truly a conservative Democrat or not? We'll find out he is an example under the radar of what is wrong with Washington. He was the governor. And now he's the senator. His wife is an elected official in West Virginia and his daughter works for a lobbying firm. I mean, it, Z is and you know what I could give that example for McConnell. I could give that example for Harry Reid. Tom Daschle. It's You Know, Republicans about that. That's why we call it Swap E mean everybody. They, you know.

While the others feel the problems that there's so many other issues with things like energy, and how that is just going to really set us back years, if not decades. And so, Steve, how we're gonna deal with this. How do you see? First of all, I mean, you know, just frustrated when you're when you're talking. They're out because we we talked about this week after week after week. You know what we remember how much does, he said? I know I said it.

"Talk with Martha Zoller. It is King Day and it is a day of service. I, um, of course, like to remember Dr King on his actual birthday, which is the 15th of January. Uh And, um, I try to do that every year. Um and take a moment and think about him on what he accomplished. He is one of the greatest Georgians definitely the greatest Georgian of the 20th century, possibly ever. And one of the greatest Americans in our time right up there with the founders because you know, he that was his desire was to realize the promise of the founding of this country, and that's what we always have to do. I mean, Ronald Reagan said it best were never more than one generation away from losing our freedom. And have paraphrased there. But it's true, and that's really what Dr King was talking about two because even though the freedom had been won in the Civil War 100 years later. Freedom had to be one again. And, um, you know, it was one of those things. I remember that year. 1968. That speech you just heard was from 1963, or the clip from the speech. 1968. That was such a turning point for me. As a person and I was only nine years old. Okay? Dr. King was killed in April. And then and it was such a poignant thing because he gave this speech the night before or the day before where he made this line. I may not get there with you. But it was it was almost like foreshadowing his own death. I mean, he knew You had to know that people wanted to kill him and wanted to kill him for the wrong reasons, because he was speaking the truth. Okay, but I remember watching the funeral. We had this little black and white TV in our kitchen and I was just watching the funeral and it it It touched me on Then. Two months later, Bobby Kennedy was killed. And you know it was this summer and I always remind people of this 1968 was so much worse. And I'm not saying that I'm I'm challenging worse. I don't want it to be worse this year. But 1968 was a terrible year because we lost these two great leaders. The violence to someone shooting them. Okay. Dr. King was killed because of his open view about race and about equality. And Bobby Kennedy was killed by a Palestinian who didn't like his views on Israel. Okay, so so it's It was a horrible summer, and then it went on to the Kent State happened in 1970 were National Guard. You know, we're heading off a protest against the war and some students got killed by the National Guard. It was a terrible time. It was a violent time. You didn't have social media, though. And and I, you know, kind of blame all the ills of the world on social media and and I have really revised how I use social media. I've never been a person that's gotten into a fight with people over social media. It really isn't Um worth it and I've learned That and I tell people that I advised because I do some communications consulting. Don't read the comments. Don't read the comments. If you've got something to say, Say it, But don't read the comments because there's trolls out there and definitely don't read the comments with a fake name. Okay? And you could tell with the fake names are okay but Guy like Martin Luther King Jr. Wasn't a perfect person. None of us are But was a person who was out there. He was only 39 years old. I don't even think he got into his 39th birthday. He was on Lee. He was a young man and put himself out there. He finished college. He went to college when he was 15. He was a brilliant person. I had the great blessing. Of talking to Dr Clarence Wagner, who was a pastor and a friend off what they who they called Daddy King. And that was Martin Luther King Sr and he wrote this book called in the Footsteps of Giants on He ended up retiring up here in Gainesville. So I really I got to sit in this studio and talk tomo person. That was in the inner circle of Martin Luther King Jr and talk to him about what had happened, and I think the most poignant thing that, he said. Was that the most poignant thing that, he said Was that he thought Dr King would be despondent about how things are Some of you trying to tell me? I was just gonna say 57 years old. Now that speech by Dr King in Washington, D. C. It'll be 58 years old in August of this year. I know it's amazing, isn't it? It's older than he was when he died. The speeches. So Clarence Wagner was an amazing guy who came up to Who ended up retiring in Gainesville. Hey, pick preached in a number of Baptist churches, and I was blessed to know him. And, um, you know, there are a lot of blessings like that in your life. And that was one of them. But, um, you know, you have someone like Martin Luther King Junior who was you know if he were still alive today? I think he'd be like in his late 80 something like that. And it's hard to imagine him right. It's an old man. That's the same way. Bobby Kennedy and JFK and John F. Kennedy kind of had to be brought to the civil rights movement, Okay? He didn't He came from a different world. He came from a very wealthy world in the Northeast, where they have their own segregation problems in the Northeast. Don't let you don't let them try to fool you and tell you that segregation was only in the South. Okay? They had segregation in the Boston area and still do Okay. All the rich people live in Cambridge and the poor people live in other places, so they have that But, um Kennedy went to the finest schools and went to the finest things and And he didn't really.

I'm looking forward to it with a great show we have for you today. We have a couple of great guests that were going to be talking to. I've really wow. Lots going on right a lot on our minds a lot. Ah, lots happening right now. If you don't mind call in and talk with me today. I've got a lot on my mind. I want to hear what's on your mind at 7705352911. I'm thinking about what happened yesterday with the impeachment process. And, of course, what's going on with the vaccines throughout our country and of course, our state. In our city. Thinking about how many of us are impacted by covert has been impacted. I believe that's all of us. But when I say impacted, I'm talking more. Right there in your own homes. Right here right now. How has this thing affected you and then, of course, with the with the proceedings that are going on the things that happened last week. At the Capitol. And when I think about right now, right now, the things that happened yesterday. How does that affect me where the first thing that comes to my mind is moving forward. How do we move forward? How do we because we heard it a lot yesterday. If you listen to the proceedings in the And the things that were going on yesterday you kept hearing the same thing. What was that Same thing you kept hearing that different people from every side, saying We need to heal. We need to heal. We need to come back together We need how do we start the healing process? So I have a question for you today. How do we begin? Not just the process of healing. But what would be our next step? What's our next? What's our next step to healing? Healing is something that we all know about. Villainous something that we've all had to experience. And now more than ever as a country. Uh, we, the United States. Yeah, that's big. We, the United States United is the key word. How What is our next step? What's next? Knew about a lot of the proceedings that are going on. I know that tensions are high. I know that people. Um Not quite as happy right now, as they have always been, But politics has always been one of those things that there's always one side or the other. That's one opinion on the other. It's just now because of All of the social media coverage and because now it's on every channel and you have all the access possible to it that now everybody or a large majority of people that normally would not Being attention to politics, of course, is paying attention and they're listening and they're wondering, And here's the big thing. They're learning. But what is it that we want them to learn? And when we say them we're talking about first timers, babies to politics, babies to the process of what we do and how we do. A lot of people just have went on their life, you know, going on and And just dependent on all the politicians and all the leaders and everybody just to do their job and that we would be fine as always. You know how it goes out of sight, out of mind kind of thing. Where people have just say You know what? I don't worry about politics. I don't get involved in it. I don't get in the the wherewithal. It always just seems to work out where now they're seeing it for the first time for themselves. And now people are getting a little nervous. Now People are more angry or whatever you want. Whatever they're in motion is they have it now, because now for the first time, it's totally in their face. It's in all of our faces. What's going on? For the first time? I believe in my life and I'm 50 years old. Said, and watched the whole proceedings yesterday I had it on my iPad. And as I went out with through my day I kept you know. Keep it live on my iPad and Oh, my goodness. For the first time. I was like, Wow ah, lot. There's a lot to this thing, and I knew it. Of course, you know, because of some of the things, but this is the first time that I actually sit there. Through all the proceedings and listen to different people's perspective. And how whatever whatever was going on. And I noticed the passion. And a lot of the senators, and I mean excuse me in the representatives and I noticed the passion as they got up a lot of them. They had to be interrupted in their statement because they will go on and on and on. And when I thought about that I said, Well, how many of us just went on our life. And now our life has been interrupted with Cove it my life is in been interrupted with with with with politics. Our life has been interrupted with sickness. That was already there. But maybe now it's s'more. Um, in our face than ever. How many times have we been interrupted in the last year? And so now that I think of it, a lot is going on. Ah, lot is being said. So what do we do? I think the social media thing you brought up was interesting because I actually dropped social media so while back and not because of all this recent stuff where they're banning people would be actually dropped it back before the election. Just because I didn't want to see all of the talking and stuff, and I think the problem with Social media's It's created this this environment where you know you just get mad at people just promotes an atmosphere where you get mad at people and you don't actually have conversations. You can't have a conversation. You know where I post something in the now or later you post something back and people Retweeting and liking it. It's not a conversation on the station. I totally agree with that. And so now what you have is people. Uh, miss informed in a lot of ways, because when you think about a social media is so easy to grab something run with it like it, Uh, share it, whatever the thing, maybe, or coming on it real quick. And not have all of the information and well, we live in an if, in a age Scuse me where information is key. You need to know what you're mad about. You need to know what you're talking about. You need to know what's going on. And I promise you now you have a lot of people. That are not only voting that a mis informed but you have a lot of people that are just plain miss informed about what's really going on. How did it happen? Why did it? Why did it? Why is it this way? Had some conversations with some people last week. Ah, lot of them literally thought that a lot of things that are happening right now, with with the election being challenged in the voting being challenged, they thought that was new stuff. You know, they were like, man. Why are they doing that? All of a sudden? I'm like, No, it's not all of a sudden this part of the process. The only difference is now you're privy to it. Now you're paying attention to it when normally you You never even gave it a second thought or you never listened. Or you didn't have the avenues to listen. Now everybody has a cell phone. Everybody has ipads and all tops types of the Elektronik devices that can get information to you quickly. So.

Protesters even with fires were going on. So in the media coverage, the battle of its planet, but not a good look. The Republicans in general, But let Mr between me and people out there. $74 million Trump. You can have five or eight or 12 or 15 Go off the rails a little bit. I just happens sometimes. You know, it's funny, because, um, we had a caller yesterday standing. He was really looking forward to the day when we had two strong parties again. And, um, I think, especially in Georgia, if you got a vote that now for two elections is basically come out. 50 50 I would say both parties. They're kind of equally strong. That may be good or bad, but you've got about equal numbers and we see this across the country to I don't think the problem is the parties. I think the problem is You know what people get mad and take their ball and go home. Here. There's a little bit of that. And it was on the other side as well. But you're right. California just elected two senators from Georgia. I mean, much will be California senators. They're not go just type of senators. You think about it. I think the other half of bay in that came in In donation. 80 90% was out of state of Georgia. So we, you know, every other commercial that had to be great for your industry. So it's media. But they really commercial TV was was commercial. So that made it. I've had three all I got so tired. Even either way I got I just got tired. I had to turn him also. We're in a weird place right now. People are upset. You know, I hope that's all they do is that But there's there's a sense of frustration out there and not trusting to the million voting system that trusting That's the systems in general, and people have watched his polls in Georgia. They walk away. Say, Look, You have a complaint. You go the poll watcher person, but they've been there forever. And they just basically don't don't do anything that you know they don't do anything. Those. It's a system controlled by Democrats. Because Democrats seem to be more in government. The problems have jobs. We gotta work everyday fare taxes, they go in the government that they can't control the The infrastructure right now. You're a humorist. I mean, and you You're pretty funny. Most of the time in 2020. It's been a hard year to be funny, 2021. I don't know where it's gonna be. But what are you looking at? What are the issues you're looking at? As we go forward into 2021. As for humoring, Obviously, Biden is he's he's You know, He's a gentle four and he's the last machine. You know he's you can make fun of him because he's white males. That should be easy for us. You know what could be pushed back on that? But if he does stupid things right, he's forgetful. He's government food, and he's kind of old school. That type of thing. So you think he could plan his own surprise party at this stage of his career? This never get better. I don't think so. There's plenty make fun all you gotta do this fall away. Get your point across. But he's said recently. I thought that assault and And um or not would win Georgia about five suitcases going to boot. Listen, Thank you for checking in force at the end of the year, and we're gonna have young more next year. They are 2021. Thank you so much, So it's a bit more protection. Thank you. Was funny, because, you know, Ron, you should read some of his college because he's very funny, but when he said, by the great because he's forgetful in his white so you can make fun of him. I thought that was funny, Interesting. Yeah, I mean, because it is kind of like the last group of people long time ago, Zell Miller When he was on the Senate floor, he said, the last group of people you could make fun of where nobody will say anything about it is hillbillies. Okay, is what he said. I think right now, the last group of people you can make fun of without anybody saying anything about you is white guys. And it's It is kind of where we are. We've got to get our sense of humor back and it's hard to do after what we saw yesterday, But we got to get our ability to talk to each other to be able to laugh together to be able to do things together. Because your whole life is not politics. I know it feels like that. Sometimes it's your whole life is not politics totally agree with that. And some people that is their whole life and So you got to get back to living. If politics is your whole life, you're not living. You got to get back to living, enjoying what God created for us to enjoy and enjoying people. So if you were talking to, you know, a Republican group and you know right now what would be your message for them? Well, my message would be to get focused, You know, Get back. Get back to what we will build on. Get back to what you're supposed to be doing. Um You've been totally distracted. I think both parties have been totally distracted. But if I was talking to a Republican group, it would be okay. Pick up the pieces. Build and build stronger, be prepared. Be the ones that I've always thought of the Republicans as people that were business minded that were they seem to always just have it together. No matter what was going on in the back room, they just seemed like they had it together. Absolutely got a text in that said, Rod. You are exactly right. People need to be heard. I feel like I don't get a say anymore. Voting doesn't work. The media has a place to see their lives and Mr Information. Politicians have a place to see their lives and misinformation, and the people aren't represented truthfully by the people that are elected Kevin in Cleveland, and, you know, I think that represents a lot of people that they feel like they're not being heard. And I think that in a way it gets back to Getting smaller, not necessarily worrying about. Obviously I worry about what happens in Washington after what happened yesterday. But okay, working your community get involved in a food bank or a community's volunteer opportunity or church or Something like that and be small and purposeful and then build back up out from there. So that is awesome. We talked about some things in 2019 and one those things was and I know that's a long time ago. Seems like now, but one of those things was going to go small to go big. And when you think about that, that's exactly what we need to get back to grass roots go small to go big. Absolutely. You can join some phones at 7705352911. Let's go to Daniel in Lula. Hey, Daniel. Hey, Ugo. I'm doing Well, Thank you. Just listening to the program. I appreciate you having me on Sure what's on your mind? Just.

"Of the United States are as follows Joseph R. Biden Jr. Of the state of Delaware has received 306 votes. Donald J. Trump of the State of Florida has received 232 votes. With Martha Zoller and Rob Huey's in with the right now, and we're having a little trouble with our access unit. So I'm on the phone right now. Because I don't want to miss you guys. You know, Bottom line is violence like we saw yesterday in the capital is not acceptable. Whether it is in Kenosha, Wisconsin, like it was the summer or In Portland. It is not acceptable, especially in our capital. That is one of the halls of justice. And you know you remember on 9 11 this just like the worst day to make since 9 11. And and that plane that went in the ground in Pennsylvania. It's probably heading for the capital. Okay, The capital should be protected, and it is something that it should be sacred as far as how you enter in there and what has happened there. As far as this country is concerned, we got attacked in Rod that says, the only person you can blame this Trump because he refuses to accept this loss and keep stirring the pot, creating friction between everyday people. Trump be a man and accept the loss and move on. Aaron and Lula said that I think that she saw in the statement that the president put forward this morning that he says he is going to. You know, there will be a peaceful change of power that he still doesn't like the results of the election, but he has accepted them. Let's go to the phones and talk to Robert in games. Robert, How you doing? I'm doing science. Thank you will vote reps. The Internet in rest in your peace where he has people came from all over different parts of the country. And it was a very beautiful thing because he was very peaceful. As I studied their faces as aw resolve. I thought determination and get along with that I saw a great amount of contentment and happiness as they were displaying the right Of assembly, So I thought What I saw was a beautiful, uh, display of composure and peaceful demonstration. And later what happened was at the It will come out that there was elements of antifa and black lives matter that was storming the Capitol and ended all that, Uh, unlawfulness. Unlawfulness is a real big mark of the left. On. And incidentally, the woman that was shot there was was shot by a man that is related to Pelosi. That's what I heard, but that's not the main thing. May. The main thing is that there will be another rally most likely and instead of coming in contentment and peace will be a roar of a desire for justice. Because, uh, the all kinds of plans T subject, ate the people and keep them from speaking and of displaying their freedoms. And this will end with the load of intervening. And spiritually and indirect, miraculously and the present world come back and lane for four more years in the White House. This is going to happen. Thanks. Thank you for your call today. Appreciate it very much and Rod. You know, just some degree we were talking about how part of this anger and and I don't agree. There might have been some elements that went in that crowd and started To be a little negative, but I think some of those very peaceful people from the morning ended up in the capital yesterday afternoon because they got whipped up. But I do think that we were talking about this earlier that When people feel like they can't be heard, it creates anger and we've got to figure out a way to get back to where people could be heard. And you're absolutely right with that. I totally agree with that. Any type of protesters because people are not being heard, and they feel like they're not getting the responses that they think they should have. Now, of course, you cannot respond to everybody the same way, But that's what generally caused it. I totally agree with that. We got another text, and this is so sad that we will never know the truth about the elections on what caused disruptions in Washington. Now that dims and their media cronies are in charge. That's what Christie had to say. But Christie here's what I would say to you about that. Most scholars now agree that the election in 1960 was stolen. Enough time is past that you can get the truth. Area. It is true that sometimes in what people call the five of war, you can't get the truth. But we will eventually get the truth. And it may not be on the timetable you and I would like, but there are times in our history where we need time to figure out what actually happened. Let's go to the phones and talk to Jim and Gilles. Bill. Hey, Jim, how you doing? Morning. Good morning. How you all doing? I'm good. All right, Rod. I got a question for you. Yes, sir. Are you related to Clarence? Huey? By chance? I am. Yes, sir. You are. How are you related? We're cousins, cousins. Okay, well, Clarence passed away years ago. Yes, sir. Uh, he carried my Children the school 45 years ago on the bus. And him and I did business together. He was a good fella. Small world, huh? What I wanted to say is, I'm glad of the protest yesterday it was a peaceful protest. Uh, we don't have many peaceful ones like that. Robert said. Everything I want to do is say so. I'm not gonna say anything more. Hay said it better than I could ever say it. Uh, it's good that, uh, Republican Patriotic Americans finally stood up, and, uh If I wasn't 72 years old, I would have been up there but the government better listen, We'll do this again if we need to. Thank you all very much..

"It is. Morning. Talk with Martha Zoller. Al Gainey is here with me. I know people are worried about today. But I also know you are going to get out to vote. You are not the kind of person Who is going to sit at home to prove a point. You're gonna be involved because that's the kind of person you are. You can't fix the process if you're not involved in the process. Joining me right now is former Governor Sonny Perdue and old friend of mine one of those guys that does what he says he's going to do, and he has been barnstorming around Georgia on behalf. Of his cousin David Perdue and Kelly Leffler. Thank you so much, Good morning, Martha. I'd like to say it's is altruistic. As you said for David and Kelly. I've been barnstorming for the future of my 14 grandchildren, because that's what the state That's what it means, doesn't it? I mean, it's like it's It's being able to keep the Senate Republican control. I like to say, and you might not agree with me that it's gonna let Joby Joe it's gonna let Joe if he ultimately is the president, which I think he is going to be that he will have T deal with people on certain things. And You know, we'll be able to to continue the legacy of President Donald Trump. Americans are always said land like checks and balances. That's what we're talking about. I don't think either side we don't want Republicans have all the control or Democrats have all the control. And if David and Kelly on elected Chuck Schumer named people OC Harris Biden, Uh l see, they're gonna have a blank check. And that's not where Georgia Vegas all right, No. And that's what the state so I hope all of your listeners. Trust. Many of them have voted earlier by absentee, but please that they not today. Their vote counts. Martha, I think I may have told you about campaigning for this congressional candidate in Iowa. She's now has been certified, winning by four votes. Out of a congressional district. Every vote counts. Every vote counts. And you heard what I said in the beginning is that you know you've talked to people. I've talked to people that think they're gonna teach somebody a lesson by staying at home today. You can't fix the process if you're not part of the process and part of being part of the process is voting. No doubt about it. We've got some fixing to do, that's for sure. And I trust that the Legislature will do that in Georgia when they convene here next week, But we've got some things to fix, but we cannot take our ball and go home. I think we're gonna win. If you don't play, there's no way there's no opportunity to win. This is too important. I know many people are still frustrated. Some still mad about that. On understand that I'm much the same way. But the only way we defeat that it's come out and vote overwhelmingly to re elect David and Kelly for the Senate. Sonny. This is our training again, and it's good to talk with you. And you know this is for all the marbles. In my opinion. We've been what the liberal left has been working on this for decades. I like kind of like what Haley Barbour said this morning. You might have heard it. If we don't get out and vote today. It's like slitting your own wrist. And I I agree with that. If we've got a boat, we don't need to turn this country over to those liberals in the Senate and in the in Congress in general, and you said something at the start of this conversation. You're fighting for your grandchildren. So am I. And so is Martha, and that's so important. That's right. Haley does have a way of putting things together. But what he says I agree with if we don't vote, we're committing political suicide. Well, and we had so many other winds on November 3rd up and down the ballot. We almost took the house. We didn't lose the Senate couple of state legislatures, Flip way elected more Republican women to the congress than we ever have. I mean, there are a lot of things to protect here that aren't just about Keeping the Democrats away. That's that's a very, very important but there are a lot of other winds throughout Georgia and throughout the country that are part of those that protection. Your vote will handle today. There are Martha and I know you and I have a former governor. I'm a little embarrassed about Georgia being in the crosshairs of the world. As far as this election goes, I think he should have been happened in November. And I don't what happened? But David came within 7000 votes out of five million of being elected with a majority. We've got a 50% plus one. He already more more than two points ahead of ourselves. So we've got to get our people back out to vote, not take it for granted and certainly not pout and say My vote doesn't count. That's just not true. So it is critical and vital. I know that you tried encourage people to vote. And so am I. And in the left lower race in the special election, 52% of the people voted for Republican or right leaning candidates. So if we get those people out, we can win that 12. Hey, Governor, Sonny Perdue always loved to talk to you, and we're going to talk to you in victory. In a couple of days. It'll be great to talk to you again. Thank you so much. That'll be great. Is there celebrate Mark? You'll have a great day. You too. You know, he is a guy that has been through it. You know, he's elected as governor twice. He's been a great agriculture Secretary Don't want to talk about that because he's in his mode of campaigning. But part of the reason why there's such a strong support for David Perdue throughout the African American farming community is because of what they were able to do after Hurricane Michael. So there's a lot to be protected here out. Absolutely Martha, and we've got to be cognizant of that. And if we if we don't look, the Democrats have been planning this for decades. It's in incremental change that we really haven't noticed. We've been. We dumbed ourselves down, and here's where we are. We've got to protect our freedom and our democracy period. It's morning. Talk with Martha Zoller. You could join us on the phones at 7705352911. Let's go to the phones and talk to Jo in L A. J. Hey, Joe, how you doing? Right. Great. Great. So enjoy the Governor Perdue and I certainly agree that we've got to get make sure that Kelly and David are elected today, and I believe it will. I mean, I I know what you all agree with this. But anyway, Marjorie Green has been on national television several times She's gonna be on in a few minutes on Newsmax. And anyway, I'd like to see I don't think are able to overturn the vote tomorrow. I'd like to see four more years and Trump and then I'd like to see eight years of marching green. Marjorie's got a successful business background like Trump. She's She's just brilliant and trump closer and he got a national following..

"Inaccurate election. Your Republican. We believe what we do have an active elections. I do you? No, No, no. You know you don't have you don't have not even close. You've got Europe by hundreds of thousands of us. It's morning Talk with Martha Zoller, and we'll talk about that call a little bit later, but it is a crazy day. But there's a lot of work to be done in the next 48 hours. Joining me right now is Governor Brian Kemp and Governor Kim. Thank you for giving us a few minutes this morning. Good morning, Martha. So first of all, before we get to that call and the other things that are happening, tell us what the big best update you have on the vaccine and how it's getting deployed in Georgia. Well, A couple of things on the covert front number one obviously are cases that really shot up post Thanksgiving. Our hospitals are very stress, especially up in the Gainesville Northeast Georgia area so I would ask my fellow citizens toe Continue. Do that. Do the things that flat bourbon stop the spread by wearing their mass social distancing. Limit your gatherings where you can and just follow the public health dinos. We're working hard to get the vaccine out. What we found early on was we had Um more demand, especially in the Metro Atlanta area and some of our other metro areas. Then we had supplied the vaccine just the way it was originally shipped. As part of operation Warp speed, and then in rule areas. It was just the opposite of that, Martha. We had.
