Without congressional action, The government will likely be unable to pay its bills. Sometime next month. In a letter addressed to congressional leaders, Yellen notes that for more than a month now the Treasury Department's been using extraordinary measures to conserve cash. While it's hard to predict how long that can continue, Yellen says the government's likely to run short of money to pay its bills sometime in October unless Congress authorizes additional borrowing before that. While the federal default could be disastrous for the economy, Lawmakers from both parties have been playing a game of chicken over the debt limit, yelling cautions it would be particularly irresponsible to put the full faith and credit of the government at risk at a time when families and businesses are already struggling with the ongoing pandemic.

"This is why you may very well see some states in Colorado may be one of them were president trump loses the state, but the Republican Senator Wins. This is why there really isn't a lot of of bellyaching and Georgia about Kelly Leffler Doug Collins. David Purdue when there is about Donald Trump because there is a more reputable presumption that donald trump is worse doing worse in Georgia than the rest of the Republicans you've got to remember in two thousand sixteen Johnny Isaacs and got more votes than Donald, trump and Georgia. Voters don't like Donald trump or not necessarily hostile towards the Republican Party and a lot of people in a level of broken nece and blame hyper partisans political analysts, reporters who don't like the President they tie the president and the Republican Party so far together, and yet a lot of what I see the data shows that a lot of people don't actually ty the Republicans in the and Donald Trump together. If anything a lot of voters are sympathetic to the Donald Trump took the GOP hostage in some way and eventually the GOP will be free of him. They don't drag the gop down as a whole. There is a desperate bread, the project Lincoln Are Are. Essentially there now, Democrats and they want to tie gop to Donald Trump and dragged them down with the president. I don't think they'll be that successful given the underlying data that I'm seeing that the thank you got to remember is that the is that demography is not destiny it's only destiny if you let it be. And the president of the United States right now to his credit surprisingly. So has recognized this and understand he's got an appeal to make to black men in particular and to Hispanic voters the appeal the black men is an interesting particularly in light of the president's tough on crime message the president's appeal the black men is singularly focused on criminal justice reform. Joe Biden signed urge Joe Biden authored legislation that through a lot of black men in jail president trump signed the legislation that got a lot of those black men out of jail. It is a message that does not exist on your television screen. It is a message that does not exist on your radio. It is a message that you can find online in forums of black men advertisements that are meant to be seen by black men who were looking at things that interest whiten on on the Internet.

Because well I do laps into cliche here I.

We have to recognize the difference between a civil war monument, and lost cause monument, and often the carving on Stone Martin Stone Mountain is referred to as a civil war monument. That's not what it is. Thurman went on to say the monument was conceived in the early early twentieth century and I haven't had the chance to about this statement, but believe you me indeed I will The minute was conceived in the Early Twentieth Century by the Klu, Klux Klan Furthermore Thurman said there are several things that could be done to help reimagined Stone Mountain Park. He said I believe we should immediately removed for lower the confederate flags that dominate the park. You can rename the streets that were all named after federal generals, and you can provide a marking. That tells the truth. About the history of the carvey. However. Well nothing's easy these days right? Nothing is simple. And it only gets more complicated because the removal of that monument wouldn't be easy because it has special protections under Georgia law. O'Toole went on to say I would hope the General Assembly and the governor would have better sense to remove such an important piece of history. Gordon James the Atlanta history historian, said the carving on the mountain has long been challenged where experiencing demographic shift in our country, and those voices that were previously drowned out or coming to the forefront.

All around for the Green family and for our family Christie goes in for her scans. Tomorrow it is a heavy day here in the Ericsson household Now that being said we do have news that we have to get to. We cannot have a PD party on the radio. You people have places to go and things do we need the news and the news is upfront Brian Kemp is shutting down own applications. After today no more applications you get to five pm today and done if you WanNa be in the United States in it if you want the chance to to be in the United States Senate from Georgia you must file your application today or else you you will be out of luck. It is The governor has dragged it out Intentionally so th they do have some strategically in here. Here and part of that strategically is they. Were kind of waiting to see what the Democrat play would be also waiting to see if any any different for me and the Democrats. They are mad as all. Get Out. It Matt Lieberman I gotTa Tell You so I if you weren't here. The first hour last night I interviewed interviewed. Nikki Haley at the Jewish center in Atlanta She was in town. The Jewish book festival of Atlanta they had a she was is the featured speaker they had sixteen hundred. People showed up and it was a very diverse credit with mostly Jewish crowd. But it was very very diverse. A lot of Republicans. A lot of Democrats It did not get an overwhelming reception. When she said she was pro-life some people clapped us? She did get overwhelming reception when she talked about Standing with the president of moving the embassy to Jerusalem ruse limb and the president got a pretty big round of applause from the crowd. But what was so interesting. There with all of it is is The there's this underlying question of the direction of the country and where we're headed and not underlying direction in Georgia about where Georgia's headed and the Democrats are really really livid with Matt Lieberman. Who is Joe Lieberman and son? Who is running for the Senate and they're they're livid with him because he has essentially pushed them to have to make decisions they did not want to have to make up front? Brian Kemp dragged out the Senate race and the Senate nomination process a one because he wanted to give people as much opportunity as possible to file their application to be a senator and to he wanted to drag it out as long as possible to see if the the Democrats would do. Something and Matt Lieberman was the Democrat. Did something Lieberman jumped into the race. He is not wanted wanted by the Democrats. He is not supported by the Democrats. The Democrats like him but like him on the sidelines. They do not like him now because he was running. The reason you need understand is one. He's a nobody is I. The Democrats are concerned and to. He's not black. We're not supposed to say this but it's true. The Democrats want a black person. They want a black person because they think that Stacey Abrams galvanized voters voters in twenty eighteen in part because she galvanize black voters to turn out in the Democrats in Georgia have decided the best way to get voters to turn out in. Georgia is to have a black statewide candidate. Who fires the base? And guess WHO's running against David even purdue a bunch of white people you've got teary Ted. Terry's Hyper Progressive Mayor of Clarkston Georgia. You've got Sarah Rigs EMECO. Who voted for Mitt Romney Against Barack Obama? You've got Theresa Tomlinson who nobody likes and now you've got John. Also we will probably wind up being the nominee because of his ability to raise money and he standing in is the proxy for Black Voters. Because he's got hey Johnson and John Lewis supported him but he. It's not good enough off. It's not good enough for him so you've got to find someone. The Democrats are trying to find someone to run again in Johnny Isaacson seat and they would like to get Michael Thurmond or someone but they have a problem. Who is the governor going to nominate? See those you listening outside of Georgia. The some states the governor not allowed to appoint and in some states the governor has to appoint from the. Party's been replacing. That is kind of irrelevant here. Because the governor's going to appoint a republican to replace Johnny Isakson and and Isaacson wants to be gone at the end of the year and There's a Senate impeachment trial more likely than not coming and other a lot of Republicans hoping that Johnny would hang on and wait until the impeachment. Trial was over but Johnny wants to leave. He's not in great health. So the governor's gotTa make pick and he would like to make a pick now In in the next week or two as Thanksgiving comes it gives people into the Christmas break To settle in gets this person settled in. Perhaps Johnny will leave sooner rather than later so that this I go to the center. The only thing anybody's GonNa ask him about his impeachment. What what's your standing on? The President I have advised several of the people full disclosure. Several of them have reached out to picked my brain on. If the governor were to pick me what should I stay on. Impeachment and my response to all of them was You are concerned by the lack of of bipartisan -ness of bipartisanship when it comes to impeachment that You think that this is probably ably best settled at the election given its partisan affair And but beyond that you will wait and see what the Democrats turn up because you will be juror and you need to be able to deal objectively with what the Democrats fine I think. That's a fair position by the way the the the partisan nature of impeachment is becoming something even reporters in your talk about. Here's molly ball talking about it. This weekend on the study shows is this is a partisan impeachment was when they had the vote. It was almost purely party. Line vote only Democrats are for it. They can't do anything about that if the Republicans don't want to come along but they but she's trying as hard as she possibly can to cast this in nonpartisan terms. She's talking about Nancy. Close trying to cash in on I. It's not GonNa work and the Democrats understand. They've got a problem here but it it. It will play out in the Senate race here in Georgia as well. Meanwhile Stacey Abrahams is back and I want to spend a little time on Stacey Abrams. She has declared the electoral college racist is the time for the electrical. The the Electoral College Pass yes. Electoral College is racist and classes. We have to remember. The Electoral College was not designed. Because people were worried about Idaho. Not Having enough votes we didn't know about that. Oh what we did know. We didn't but what we did know was that in the south. The populations in the south had the equal or roughly equal populations to the north however. Because black people were not considered human or citizens they wanted their bodies to count for the purposes of the the population count but not their humanity and the electoral college was designed to give southern states the ability to count the bodies of slaves but not have to allow them to cast asked votes and thus the electoral college was born as a compromise. The other challenge was the north didn't immigrants making decisions and they didn't believe that immigrants and that those who are not considered well educated should be making decisions about who the executive of our nation should be so it was a combination of racism. Classism both of those things should be funk to the far reaches of history and the Electoral College needs to go. The Electoral College needs to go. Because it's racist that is so counterfactual to the history of the Electoral College. If you'll allow I want to play the Abrahams rims clip again and I wanNA walk through the Abrahams Clip. Let let's let's listen to this together again. Joey is the time for the electrical the Electoral College yes electoral college is racist. And why does she say it's racist. We have to remember. The Electoral College was not designed. Because people were worried about Idaho. Not Having pets. Let's we didn't know about what we did know by the way. Let me stop here some. You'll get mad at me for saying something Nice about zero and by the way I think Abrams is a super smart lady. We disagree on Politics every encounter. I've had with her has been pleasant in large part because she has a great sense of humor. She is very quick witted on her feet. And I like that in a politician Asian. She's also very self deprecating. I know plenty of politicians on the right who cannot laugh at themselves and to a person. They're all people you would not want to hang out with Stacey Abrams at someone whether you agree with her or not she actually can Make a joke about herself. And I find it endearing when a politician in high-profile jobs jobs can make jokes about themselves. But she's wrong here. We didn't but we did know. was that in the south. The populations in the south had had equal or roughly equal populations to the north. However because black people we're not considered human or citizens they wanted their bodies to count for the purposes of the population count but not their humanity? And she's right in the northern states said no and the southern states would not go along with the constitutional less they can so the northern states came up with the three fifths compromise where slaves would count as three fifths of a person. It was not for racism. You need to understand this. The South wanted added a one for one. Pick in the North said absolutely not We're not going to count a slave as equal to a voting citizens since they cannot vote and give the southern orange slave states more power than they deserve. They did this to limit southern power and the electoral college was designed to give southern states the ability to count the bodies of slaves but not have to allow them to cast votes. That's not true either. The Electoral College was a completely separate compromised. The Electoral College was a compromise about the smaller states. Remember Virginia was a huge state. Georgia was growing. Then you had smaller states up north. who were worried about the slave states? Dominating I mean this is the the weird thing histories upside down the major compromises..

"We'll get to that a little bit. Okay so democrats are meeting in atlanta with officials from the democratic senatorial campaign committee and the d._n._c. <hes> these groups want to pick who the democrat democrat is going to be to run the isaac since they're really really concerned about a situation where the governor pick someone to replace johnny isakson soon that person is able to serve january to november build name i._d. As an as an actual senator raise money as an actual senator and then you have three thousand democrats who all wanna get advanced to show up and try to beat them and what happens is the democrats divide themselves up five ways to none and the republican incumbent senator is actually elected. They're deeply worried about that so what the national democrats want to do. Is they want to come down and they want to pick the winner in advance. Now i gotta tell you i am at least intellectually consistent on this. I think primaries do a good thing. I think primaries series forced candidates to do a better job. Take the sixth congressional district. There are a lot of people i know who are mad at me for backing karen handel again in the sixth congressional district considering. She lost against lucy and i get it. I do not think it was her fault. I think there were external factors at play. I think that the outside groups abandoned the ground game. <hes> the race was very close. She would've won. She was let down by outside groups. It was not her fault. She did everything she could in a waiver for the democrats and she lost and not by much. I say give it another another shot. She knows the district's knows the people she has the name i._d. Go fort. I understand that the people they're concerned the other side but <hes> i've had several friends ends of mind say you you know you should also if you're supporting karen you should be browbeating the other people and trying to get them out of the race and i have no intention of doing that and the reason i i have no intention of doing that is because i think a primary makes a stronger general election candidate. Now there are people who say well. They're gonna spend all their money in the primary and they're going to have done for the general i get that's a valid concern but i think it is far better to vet the candidates through a primary process than it is to have them run without a primary and essentially that's what the democrats want they do is they want to deny someone to clarify in process of a primary and thrust them into what is essentially a general election without having been vetted in excuses that while you're all going to be on the ballot together so what i think what will happen otherwise is let's. Let's be honest here. The democrats do not have strong bench right now. That's just the honest fact name measure with the exception of stacey abrahams name a major democrat in the state you there really aren't any there you can say michael thurmond who who is is how old and been wearing and done what for how long win john barrow same situation <hes> becoming rapidly perennial candidate who were the prominent democrats in the state eight of georgia there really aren't any. You're having to go down to people like jerry boston the d._a..

"Power to the von Hessler doctrine begins now. Yelled at my producer. That thing. Now that we got that taken care of shaken that little flash of anger is out of the way and get the show on track for you to Bill crane. Just a moment. Did you hear Trump yesterday? Everybody have a bunch of tech guys up there. Tim cook is the CEO of apple took over for Steve Jobs and Trump referred to him. We appreciate it very much. Tim apple. We do we appreciate you very much. Tim apple Tim, apple Jimmy, Google is over there. Mark facebook. Netflix. Tumbler snapchat. And who is the best. We appreciate it very much. Tim apple. Bill crane. You there Bill? Yes. I am. You our senior political analyst had WSB radio and television, and you run your own operation there with CSI crane. Thanks for joining us at the last year. Now, the house oversight committee. This is Elijah Cummings. Same committee that Ran Cohen hearings last week, right? Yes. Representative cummings. Yes from Maryland. Right. So he what exactly has happened here. He is demanding what from the state of Georgia and why information on the Pershing process for voters. At Georgia information on voting machines that were not deployed by the counties and precincts information on the process counties used by which they closed certain precincts and polling places during the two thousand sixteen election year and information on Georgia's registration process collection is at the behest of Stacey Abrams or her campaign. The narrative is Ben Hillary Clinton. I believe is in Kibera where she was last week where she said Stacey Abrams should be the governor of Georgia. Now the same way that she supposedly should should be the president of the United States. Now is was this pushed from Georgia or did it come out of DC? I honestly don't know who pushed the button on a logic coming or with. His staff, but I would say MS Abrahams successfully has sort of weaponized via issue of elections running registration and again allegations of suppression for the twenty twenty cycle. It's one of the reasons she's being recruited to run for the United States Senate. It's one of the reasons he was chosen to give the state of the union address to give her credit she and her organization that they're Georgia project at a comp-. Incredible job of identifying perspective democratic voters who typically don't vote in non presidential election years building a database, adding cell phone number. So they can text them having Email addresses where they had them and just identifying and then turning out whether it be absentee provisional or at early voting on election day at their precinct voters in record numbers who typically would not vote in a presidential election cycle and sheets. She ran a hell of a campaign, and she almost one that that's all legitimate. And I don't raise any. Question on any of that. But what I have seen since. And certainly in the the non concession is an attempt to paint this as a stolen election, which unfortunately, whether we like it or not here in Georgia. I've traveled a good bit abroad in the last several months and all over the country for different business clients. And I keep hearing what a shame about that stolen election. Shame about so at least in terms of how the national media coverage has tainted the perception of the election in two thousand sixteen that stock. How much of that has to do with the house oversight committee asking for this Georgia was among every other southern state under voting rights supervision of the Justice department until I think it was two thousand four two thousand and six dating back the passage of the Civil Rights Act. And now we've talked about this before on the show. There are simple facts that are sort of not in dispute we had a record number of registered voters six point seven five million. We had a quarter of a million voters registered between April and July the primaries. We had record minority participation over the two thousand and eight and two thousand twelve elections that block Obama top the ticket. We had record vote in terms of raw numbers Republican and democratic for the two candidates for governor more than any other gubernatorial candidates had ever had and thanks to the voter page and online doting we saw a significant surge in voter, registration and participation this past cycle for a mid-term election against setting records. So that someone had a scheme to defraud or Keith certain people from voting or suppress for destruction or participation? They did really crappy job. Do you think this will it all the way that I take this as I am outraged by it? I don't get outraged by much if somebody wants to be my governor, if they want to be the next Senator from the state of Georgia, it seems to me that I I believe that that person loves the state and would not drag the state through glass when it wasn't necessary. And I don't think that this is necessary. I don't know that Stacey Abrams is even. Thinking about statewide office anymore. She's probably she's more of a national figure. Now, I was saying earlier if a democrat won in twenty twenty I think she'd be in the administration in some role in twenty twenty one. I can easily see that. Or I can see Mr. Abrahams as a running mate for vice president on the ticket. And I don't disagree with you that she has towards that. If you read her book takes all the way into page three for her to mention she's always dreamed about being in the United States. So I think that's on her radar. I think it's more likely that you'll run again for the US Senate statewide and George in twenty twenty. But again, it depends on how the presidential primaries. Check shakeout she's very close to several of the contenders on the democratic side for the White House. But I I would I would share besides the kind of the sportsman of our reputation statewide, I have a problem with any politician or candidate knows something to not be true. And and the president does this and just continues to say it and say it and say it until it sort of just sorta sticks. So we've got this reputation now nationally, which I think is undeserved running on fair elections there against some facts that need to be put in better play one is that it is the local boards of elections in the local election superintendent, actually ministering. On the elections. The current voting system, which we have in place was funded by the state of Georgia. But the equipment that was selected and all of that happened in two thousand and four when a democrat a friend of mine. Kathy Cox was our secretary of state who ran for governor as secretary of state and nobody did not resign run. She ran for governor as secretary of state. Yes, the windows. XP software by Microsoft was no longer. Serviced after I think two thousand eleven or two thousand and twelve in terms of update, but we have no evidence of a single precinct being act toward results being changed. Yes. There were inconveniences on election day that's going to happen. When you have about four and a half million people doing the same thing in three or four thousand locations across the state. But again, there is no evidence of any elections results being changed so to continue to play this card and talk about racism one other. I'm sorry. I know we're running out of time on the segment absentee ballot applications and absentee ballots themselves, which are there most easily abused. And biggest potential for fraud. There were all sorts of allegations about those and in in particular in DeKalb county where I happened to live. There was an allegation at the county registration on election superintendent was sitting on forty one hundred Donald applications this came from both evens campaign the state party in congressman Johnson. When pressed for names are individuals who are waiting on those ballots. They were given to two names one of whom had already voted in. Then. Sent her absentee ballot. The county did a thorough investigation. The elections office doesn't throw investigation DeKalb county is controlled by a majority minority population has a minority CEO Michael Thurmond is election superintendent has also black. They found no missing absentee ballot applications are balanced. But the bigger point I want to raise it. There's no place on apps and take ballet application or the ballot itself to indicate race. So the only way you would even know if you're attempting to suppress minority vote would beat a manual database. Search once you have absentee ballot application in or the absentee ballot itself had been cast, and that leads an electronic paper trail, and there's no evidence of that happening again. Can you say certain ballots were not processed or applications weren't process? When again, there's no data tobacco. Because in reality. This is about twenty twenty and it's about that narrative, and that campaign how long do we have early voting? It seems like it was three months. I'm sure it wasn't that long weeks. And there are states that are considering having that in early voting is underway right now for the special election for Marta in Gwinnett and city council race in Atlanta in any other place in the state the secretary of state's office does set the election calendar for the year. So those dates are are known in advance. They do train the poll workers through the election superintendent's office and the election superintendents themselves the first week in January every year after the year prior. They get any changes in election law, and he will be getting new election equipment. I'll be trained on next year. I wanna I wanna get to the kind of words that are used the purging of voters now that sounds like it's horrible. But if I decided tomorrow to move to Arizona, I don't get in touch with my voting people and say, hey, by the way, take me off the rolls. I'm moving to Zona I'll be voting there. Now purging is something that has to be done. When people don't vote for how many cycles it is here. But a certain number of cycles if people don't vote you take them off the rolls as a way to. The queens its current laws three years, if you don't vote basically between presidential election cycles at all you're eligible for getting worn minder from your voter election superintendent, are you still there and it's postcard, and if you don't respond to it they in the second postcard. And if you don't respond to that, you purge people die people move minority populations in particular are very transient compared to the general population. So if their address changes, they often move into a different district. There were almost thirty thousand provisional ballots cast on election day in November of two thousand sixteen about twelve thousand of those were determined to be legal. There were people who are voting who were felons. There were people who are voting who were not citizens. They were people who were voting who were not registered. There were people who were voting who were not registered in that county where they cast about or they cast more than one ballot or they weren't registered to vote in another county. So there there are legitimate reasons that people can't cast multiple ballots or have to pick a jurisdiction in which they live for all the local races. You. Don't just vote for governor and technical you never vote for president you in a presidential preference. Primary warn you vote for electors in the electoral college on election day. Yeah, we gotta we gotta run here. But do you agree with this statement that I believe living here?.
