Biden welcomed back to Georgia after lying low in midterms

"President Biden heads to Georgia tomorrow for a ceremony to honor doctor Martin Luther King Jr. after staying away from the state during the midterm elections. A White House adviser says President Biden will be the first sitting president to deliver a sermon during Sunday morning services at the historic ebenezer baptist church, where doctor king had preached. The president will not only reflect on doctor king's legacy, but also emphasize voting rights legislation, which is stalled on Capitol Hill. Senator Raphael Warnock issued the invitation. He presides over the church, but he had kept President Biden at arm's length during the midterm elections because of the president's lagging approval ratings. And now the Atlanta appearances notable, as President Biden looks to a 2024 reelection campaign, now dogged with the disclosure that classified documents have been found at his Delaware home and a Washington D.C. office.

After midterms, GOP reconsidering antipathy to mail ballots

"Are starting to reconsider the party's resistance to mail in ballots. Got to be careful with those ballots. Watch those ballots. When former president Donald Trump condemned mail in voting in 2020, conservatives began to shy away from it. They're unsolicited millions being sent to everybody. But Republican National Committee chair ronna mcdaniel said on Fox News this week that Republican voters need to cast ballots early beyond the challenges of COVID-19, ballot glitches, long lines, or bad weather on election day, giving Democrats a multi week jump on voting makes it more difficult for Republican candidates to catch up. In Georgia's Senate runoff, Democrat Raphael Warnock topped Herschel Walker by an almost two to one ratio in mail ballots, Tea Party organizer Debbie Dooley is a Trump loyalist, but says the midterms were the last straw, the GOP has got to put a priority on competing with Democrats from the start, she says, and beat them at their own game.

If you've made a decision, if you call yourself a Republican and conservative, I'll do my best not to interrupt. I want to listen to your explanation for handing Raphael Warnock. The keys to the Senate. Pray for me. Pray that we'll get through it. I'll pray for you that you'll listen to it and you won't fall apart, but I do. I want to hear what people are going to say. If a couple 100,000 Georgia Republicans voted for him and let me specify the criteria. If you voted for Herschel Walker on November the 8th, but you didn't vote for him in this week's runoff, please give me a call. One 806 5 5 mic, don't worry in the spirit of the season. I won't take your head off. I just want to hear your explanation. Maybe you'll give us some insight. Maybe we can some glean some knowledge from you. So if you voted for her, again, 1.9 million people approximately Georgia Republicans voted for Herschel in November 8th, 1.7 voted for him in the runoff. If the same people who voted for him on November 8th had voted for him this week, he wins easily. Easily. All right? So if you voted for him on November 8th, but didn't vote for him this time around, please give us a call and give us your reasoning. We would be very interested in hearing your explanation.

You know, maybe it's best summed up by a headline at The Daily Beast of all places, Herschel Walker's exes rejoice at defeat by Warnock. I mean, I'm extremely proud of the outcome of the runoff, said Cheryl parsa, who is in a relationship with the former football star and the 2000s and alleges that he lied and cheated on her and, you know, it worked. A lot of it worked. You've nailed it. You captured perfectly what the problem is and the problem is nearly a quarter of a million Republican voters in Georgia who stayed home. And well, they, and you know, to those who would say, well, but I'm sure I'll get calls as you'll probably get calls at some point. Well, Herschel wasn't a great candidate. Oh, okay, so you want Rafael. We're not instead. That's what you want. Did you see that we're not said that Jesus would have fought for abortion? Jesus? I mean, you want to talk every level of sacrilege, blasphemy, the Jesus himself would be fighting for abortions. What if he says that from the pulpit of the ebenezer baptist church? I mean, I had a couple of folks in the text line shortly about. And I do love the text line, and I do love the phone lines, and as on Mike's show, you agree, disagree. Everybody's welcome here. 8 6 6 6 6 zero 5 7. Block way faster than you do. And I'll be doing some blocking today. Well, I let a guy in who said that Herschel was flawed. It's a bloodied nose for Trump and that Warnock is a Christian who quotes from the Bible in this to his appeal. What the Bible is he quoting from? What Christ is he following? Not the one that I'm aware of who has reviews about, oh, I don't know how many genders there are. Certain views about all kinds of things. So the Chrysler wants the baby ripped out of the womb at 9 months, apparently. Nothing screams, Jesus Christ like that. Nothing, nothing. Nothing screams the love of Christ like a late term abortions. I mean, it's too bad, but you know the infighting has got to stop the battling this whole leaf Zelda incidentally was announced moments ago is not going to challenge Ronda mcdaniel to be the RNC chair. Interesting. Yeah, it is interesting. I mean, I don't know. I mean, I really don't care. I don't get into this whole, I don't think she's the problem. I don't think she's ever listened to the Ronald McDaniels meaning to me. I don't think fundraising has been much of a problem. I think we've done okay on that. Every time I've seen Rana on TV, she does a great job and I kind of like the fact that she is there buying it. I mean, she's not an enormous Trump fan girl, but nor is she a hater, and she's offering up support for Trump like candidates, which must go over well with her uncle Mitt Romney. So I kind of love that. Harmony is this. Oh, I know. And it was also great. She, I think, might be seeking that post. And that's okay. Mike lindell is seeking the post. I mean, a lot of people are seeking the post. And you know, I mean, listen, this is the kind of distraction in terms of this infighting and I mean, I guess it's part of the process..

"Want the Mike Gallagher show 24/7? There's an app for that. Go to Mike online dot com. This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is the Mike Gallagher show. It never felt like the Senate Republicans wanted this guy. If you're a Republican, you're disappointed and the only way to explain this is candidate quality. If we don't take our medicine here, it's our fault. You have to play the game by the rules that are existing. It means that you have to recognize early voting. It doesn't do Republicans any good to save their TV money till October, if they've had a third of the vote come in in September. No, from the relief factor dot com studios. Here's Mike Gallagher. We got to do a better job of getting better quality candidates, we've got to do a better job of I don't want to vote because I don't really like that Herschel Walker's girlfriend 29 years ago said he broke up with her and was mean and we got to get we got to get are you kidding? Are you kidding me? John fetterman, we got John fetterman in the U.S. Senate and you're going to tell me about candidate quality well, listen, we can't clone Abe Lincoln, there's a whole lot of people from a lot of walks of life who want to run for office and the voters get to decide who the general nominee is going to be in the candidate is going to be and the media can ring its hands and point its fingers and jump up and down. Let me give you a couple of facts. Facts that absolutely have to be acknowledged. And in my world, the way I see it, the only explanation for Herschel Walker losing yesterday is a statistic. 1.9 million Georgia Republicans, approximately voted for Herschel Walker on November 8th, 1.7 Georgia Republicans voted for Herschel Walker this time around in the runoff. That's disgraceful. It's shameful. It's appalling and now the country is going to suffer some pain. As a result, I ask myself driving into work today, dare I torture myself and this audience with a Georgia Republican who made a conscientious decision not to vote yesterday. Do I do that to myself? I think I'm going to try, I like to consider myself somebody who's a little feisty. For years, they've called me the happy conservative warrior. I know that you're a warrior, this audience, an audience of warriors. We got good people fighting hard for this country, hard. People never, ever willing to give up. And people smart enough to reject the media narrative. Oh, Trump is over the walls are closing in. It's all done for Donald Trump. He's lost his mode. All that crap. Same people that hate Trump for 7 years are saying that now. Ignore them. And listening to establishment Republicans lecture the world about we need better candidates while the Democrats don't seem to mind electing a guy who is so radical that he believes in freeing convicted killers, that would be John fetterman, you want to talk about, is there a worse political candidate in the history of America? Then Katie Hobbs, is there a worse candidate in the history of their republic than John fetterman? So knock it off, I don't want to, I really am having a hard time tolerating a losing attitude, Republicans have control of the House of Representatives. We've controlled the purse strings. We better stop the bickering. We better start getting unified. I like congressman Andy Biggs out of Arizona. He's a good man. Mark Levin is a good talk show host. Their paths have collided. Where do you hear what Mark Levin said about Andy Biggs considering challenging Kevin McCarthy for Speaker of the House? This kind of in party fighting is so counterproductive. It's so destructive. Democrats would vote for a zombie. If they thought that it would be to Republican. And we sit around and whine. I had some jerk. If Herschel walk called the show, I didn't want to entertain it. If Herschel can't be a good husband, how can he be a good senator? You think Rafael Warnock is a good pastor? You think Rafael Warnock is a good guy? How about Raphael Warnock's take? That defending and fighting for abortion is what Jesus Christ would do. This is what he said to joy Reid a couple of days ago on MSNBC. But if we care about life, you know, black women are dying three to four times the rate of white women and childbirth as a result of childbirth and so if you care about life, we ought to find a way that's a place where government could show up. And address the obvious bias and our healthcare system. It's what Jesus would do. I think it's exactly what jeez. Senator. What Jesus would do fight for abortion rights because, you know, Jesus was pro late term abortion. Jesus Christ is all about destruction and death. And misery, no. That's not what Jesus Christ is about. That's not what Christianity is about, and I can't even imagine what it must feel like to have your fanny in the pew of the ebenezer baptist church and listen to a pro late term abortion pastor, now U.S. senator. So he takes the robes off and then he can put his suit and tie on and enact policies that continue the Democrat tradition of death and despair and destruction..

Herschel Walker Loses Georgia Senate Race

"Big news coming out. That Herschel Walker did not win. The election. And so we'll talk about that right now and I know that there's a lot of people that may want to make an excuse, but I believe that there's no excuses that need to be made. We literally did not win the race. We did not win. And if you see that Brian Kemp won and we lost, this race, then that tells you something. It tells you that we did not compete and we did not do the things that were necessary to win this race. It wasn't cheating. It wasn't ballot harvesting and none of that of the stuff because those things, we could have done to if you help ourselves in this particular election, but we didn't do what it takes to win. And I'm glad to see that Herschel Walker made up in his mind that he was going to say he's not going to make any excuses and that we just did not run a good race. Let me give you some numbers. I think I had them here. So if you didn't watch the election, I think with 99% of the vote in, I don't know if they have a 100% of the vote, but this is as of the 7th, which is today 9 45 a.m. this morning. Harsher walker ended up getting 48% of the vote and Raphael Warnock got 51% of the vote. So he got beat by a pretty decent margin.

It's just people who came and showed up or did not show up. It's that simple. We're not even talking about the nonsense and Fulton or Henry or dak or Cobb, turnout was down, and it manifested in hershel walker, unfortunately coming about 95,000 votes short, but 200,000 people in the state of Georgia had something better to do.

The difference a 51-49 Senate majority makes to Democrats

"Democrats are celebrating their 51 49 Senate majority following Raphael Warnock's win in the Georgia runoff. As Warnock returned to the capitol, he was greeted outside by Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer, who hours earlier couldn't stop smiling after the longest evenly split Senate in modern times. It gives us just a lift. An end to the days were just one Democrat could snarl legislation. The outright majority will also make simple governing easier and allow Senate Democrats to be a barrier against legislation from the GOP led house. Schumer figures the Democrats unexpectedly strong midterms showing sent a message to Trump inspired Republicans. That if they follow a maga direction,

"The Senate's top Democrats says the reelection of Georgia senator Raphael Warnock gives the party more breathing room to address a wide range of issues, and it's another blow to former president Trump who had endorsed Herschel Walker. Here's WTO's Mitchell Miller today on the hill. They say all good things come to those who wait. And this outcome is absolutely worth the way. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer, noting senator Warnock's victory ends nearly two years of a 50 50 Senate. Schumer says Democrats 51 49 margin means they'll be able to do a lot more in committees and with judicial nominees. Obviously judges and nominees will be a lot easier to put on the bench. For Republicans, walker's loss was one of several involving Senate candidates who had been backed by former president Trump in a year where the GOP was positioned for a possible power shift in the Senate as well as the house. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO P news. Well, the race between Warnock and walker was the most expensive race of the 2022 midterms and possibly one of the most dramatic Atlanta reporter in WTO alum Rao Bali covered both campaigns closely. He says the post mortem of walker's losing campaign is already begun. There's going to be second guessing on messaging on approach, the idea that he really focused on conservative base voters and not swing voters. You know, he did a little about inflation and gas prices, but he was focusing on red meat conservative issues. The majority of his campaign stops in the final days were in conservative areas. There's going to be questions about that. With Warnock's win, Democrats will have a 51 to 49 majority in the Senate and the upcoming session. Drivers

"Obviously they're going to need Republicans in the Senate to agree to lift the debt ceiling next year and that's going to be one of the most contentious votes we're going to see in a lot of brinksmanship on that. McCarthy has said that in order to raise a debt ceiling, Republicans in the House are going to need mandatory spending, spending cuts across the board pretty much. But we could see, you know, if moderate Republicans join with Democrats and do a discharge position, we could see them clear that in the house, but then McConnell is still going to have to do, you know, the potentially politically unpopular thing with his party, which is vote to raise the debt ceiling. So it's going to be interesting to watch that relationship and how two leaders of the same party who typically would be aligning their strategies together and very much in sync are going to be butting heads very much next year. So that'll be one thing to watch. Right. At the same time, though there's sort of like in the same boat on a lot of things. Just regarding the Republican Party at large and we saw this sort of very striking moment on Tuesday at the awarding of the congressional gold medal to the first responders on January 6th. And there was this viral moment where some family members, they following capital police officers sort of went down this line and did not shake the hands of McConnell or McCarthy. What did you sort of take away from that moment? But Colin McCarthy have treated January 6th in the aftermath and wildly different ways, but this moment sort of put them together and I'm just curious what you took from that. Yeah, it's definitely interesting that they lumped the two together given that McConnell has very much made a break from Trump and that he hasn't spoken to him since before January 6th of that year. He hasn't talked to him since then. He hasn't gone to Mar-a-Lago the way that McCarthy has in trying to continue to pay homage to the former president. But clearly, you know, these family members of both officer sicknick who passed the day after January 6th. And then also these officers who have probably seen a lot of people reach out to their families and harass them online, you know, people who potentially supported what happened on January 6th. They're angry at Republicans writ large for not supporting them more. And for not basically being out there and defending what they did that day, more forcefully. And so clearly they're just this anger is not just limited to McCarthy. It's also McConnell on this. Rachel, on Tuesday, you wrote the top of playbook and one of the questions you ask is how would Mitch McConnell handle this latest piece of Trump news involving his call to quote terminate the constitution. While we saw today and it was kind of classic

Yeah, they could have written that 6 weeks ago. They probably did. You know, voters have a funny way of telling sites like Politico. You're not going to tell us who to vote for. This is obviously an effort. I was talking to the lieutenant governor Pamela Everett of in South Carolina. She was into koa Georgia this morning with my pal Joey Hudson, Joey was doing a remote broadcast from Georgia. South Carolina's neighboring state. A lot of people in South Carolina are helping to get out the vote in Georgia by canvassing and knocking on doors and doing all we can to get Herschel Walker elected to prevent the Democrats from getting outright control of the Senate 51 49 and like Pamela said they write these articles and they do everything they can to suppress a vote and to discourage people from turning up at the turnout in Georgia has been huge. And so there's no reason to despair, get out and vote tomorrow's election day. And Herschel Walker could pull this thing out. He's the underdog. There's no question. He's up against Hollywood. He's up against all the millions and millions of dollars that have been funneled into Georgia, supporting an abortion, a pro abortion pastor. I mean, that's all I need to know. Talk about again. A good versus evil. That really is good versus evil. You think about this. The guy that stands at the pulpit of the ebenezer baptist church is A-okay with late term abortion, is that not evil, creeping into our world?

Speaking on Fox, he says Republicans who oppose him will only hurt the GOP's efforts to make changes. If people don't come along, that's going to delay our ability to secure the border.

Herschel Walker: Raphael Warnock Is With Joe Biden

"The left is getting pretty worried about this race. Herschel, there's a news story up in The New York Times the headline how Herschel Walker could win the Georgia Senate race. So you can't buy into the mainstream media headlines. You've been out there pounding the pavement. And if the good people of Georgia get out and vote on election day, you're going to have a great day on Tuesday. I will. And I want to give people to get out and vote. I think Raphael won as shown who he's for. He's for Joe Biden. He was California and New York. That's the way he's voted. And I think he's shown that he's been a wolf and seat clothing. He tried to hide everything he's done, but you can't hide your record. You voted for this inflation. You voted for crime on the street. You vote for this open border. You voted to put men and women sports. He also voted against religious free liberties. And that's when you get to the point that he's a man out of cough and to vote for a religious liberties. He will wait. What's going on with this guy?

Herschel Walker Launches Campaign Citing Raphael Warnock's Evictions

"A Herschel Walker has launched a 7 figure statewide advertising blitz highlighting Rafael Warnock's evictions of tenants at his low income housing complex and domestic violence allegations by his ex-wife. I know none of that says sexy as Herschel allegedly supporting an abortion 30 years ago, but hey, the voters get to decide one tenant featured in the ad a Vietnam War veteran slammed Rafael Warnock for taking a $7000 a month tax free housing allowance from ebenezer baptist church where Warnock serves as senior pastor and CEO even while the church's apartment complex tried to evict residents for owing as little as $28 in late rent. The TV campaign comes 8 days before the polls close.

Georgia high court allows Saturday voting for Senate runoff

"Georgia counties will be able to hold early voting this Saturday in the Senate runoff election between Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker. It's the only possible Saturday for early voting before the runoff on December 6th. Republicans had objected, citing state law that says early in person voting is not allowed on a Saturday if the Thursday or Friday before is a holiday. Since Thanksgiving is tomorrow, the state and GOP group said that includes this Saturday. Democrats argued the ban does not apply to runoff elections. The state Supreme Court has left in place a lower court ruling allowing the voting to happen this Saturday, Sagar Meghani, Washington.

How Democrats Push Constantly to Get Voting Advantage

"I want to talk about how Democrats are able to push constantly to get a advantage in the voting process. This ties into a line I used in 2000 mules, which is that Republicans focus on campaigns and Democrats focus on elections. The actual mechanism of the election. So here's Raphael Warnock in Georgia. And he's gone to court. And he's gone to court to sort of have a judge alter the election laws. Election laws passed by the Georgia legislature. So the election laws are pretty clear. And they say that there's going to be in a runoff. The early voting shall quote on the fourth Monday immediately prior to a runoff from a general election, it's talking about there shall be a period of advanced voting that shall commence. So basically, what does that mean? The election, the runoff is December 6th. Tuesday, December 6th. And if you vote in person, it's that day. But there's early voting that is the previous week. Monday, November 28th, through Friday, December 2nd, 5 days, just as the law specifies. So Warnock goes to court to a friendly judge, and basically says, I want you to now declare that early voting can occur, starting on Saturday, the Saturday prior. So in other words, we're going to add in that weekend and extend the early voting period. Now the issue really isn't though the wisdom of the law, the point is that this is the law. This is written in the statute.

Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker Will Have a Runoff in Georgia

"Again, an interesting perspective we'll talk about, let's just go ahead and talk about Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock right now. Is it important if you're a Georgia listener to this podcast in particular for you to go out and vote a Republican to go out and vote? Yes. I know that it's not for the control of the Senate anymore. I know it's not what we had hoped it to be, but it still matters. 51 senators from the Democratic Party in the United States Senate then can control committees. And then they can make sure that they get out whatever they want to get out of committee. Now, granted, we do have the house now to stop some of this. But that's an important thing, especially when it comes to judges that the Biden administration is going to try and pack through here the next two years. Keeping that 50 50 means that it has to come to the floor. And then it's just, it makes it a lot harder to get those judges out. And it means Democrats are put in more pressure. Especially on judges that are on the fringe of being appointments. So the 51 50 matters, you either going to have a power sharing agreement or you're going to have complete control by the Democrats. So Republicans in Georgia, if you want to say Republicans maintain at least a power sharing agreement in the United States Senate, you need to get out and vote for walker. Walker experienced a 200,000 less votes than governor Kemp and other members of the Republican statewide tickets which, by the way, this idea that Georgia had flipped in Georgia was a purple state in Georgia and it didn't happen. In fact, if it wasn't for the walker race, it was a complete beatdown in Georgia by Republicans led by the governor Brian Kemp and others on the democratic candidates up and down the line. And it's just amazing to me that the very little that is being reported about this. I mean, there were AJC reporters. And rightfully so, wrote books about how Georgia had flipped. Will it flip in one election for very different rains mainly the fact that Republicans just did not show back up to the polls in a runoff last year,

Making Sense of the Election

"I mean, we're coming into the end of the month here of November. And I don't know about you. It's just flying by. It's times the constant election drone that seems like it's gone on since 2020 of November and now is two years. If you're rotting along, you're running, walking, exhausting, whatever you do to listen to the dog college podcast. I want you to just think about that for a second. It's been two years. Since the November 2020, presidential election. And it seems like that it is never ended. I mean, we went through everything after 2020, then we would sort of it's like, jump straight into the midyear cycle, and then with all of the issues with the Biden administration and, you know, frankly, I think a lot of people are glad I know I am. To see this election cycle over, I'm pleased with some of the results. I'm not pleased, of course, being a conservative. I'm not pleased with other results. But I'll also hear in Georgia in which we're three more weeks away from finishing up the election, the 2022 election cycle for good, except for those states who don't know how to count ballots. That's whole different issue. But with the last other election, that's the runoff here in Georgia between Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock. I'll dig into that race just a little bit toward the end of the podcast day. But I wanted to give us a chance. We went over this before. I want to now sort of sit back two weeks after the election. Almost two weeks after the election. And let's just think about what is happening. And I want to, you know, we've talked on this podcast a lot about why things were happening. And we brought this in percentages of how it would work, who would work. And I'll be honest. The last week's projections, they were off. We missed it a little bit. Now, I did give a two 25 to two 35 range. I thought toward the end, if you remember the podcast, we might because polling was looking like we were going to be up higher. On the house side. But two 25, I said, was and I'll use my own words. A bad night. Well, we had, frankly, from the perspective of election margins, it was a bad not for Republicans. It was very good night, and I want to reemphasize this. It's a very good not for Republicans if you take the fact that we did take the house back. Republicans did take the house back, which means that the divided government is back that the just strike shot of spending and other programs for the Biden administration is now over.

Rafael Warnock didn't do it. You heard the interviewer in Atlanta the other night on that Georgia stage, he didn't do it. Pastor Warnock senator Warnock, do you favor any restriction at all from the government on the term of an abortion? And Raphael Warnock's answer spoke volumes. He didn't answer. Because the answer is no. The official Democrat position is there are to be no limits on abortion. And I can promise you 80, 90% of Americans find that ghastly, the Democrat position is in about the minority of about 7 or 8 percent. Well, Americans know what barbarism is. We know what evil is. We know what murder is. And taking the life of a baby in a late term abortion procedure is evil.

Don't buy anybody who tells you that Herschel Walker didn't do a good job. In his debate, because he did. He did fine. Herschel Walker all eyes were on Herschel Walker on this debate. And you know something, it was the only one, the sole Rafael Warnock Herschel Walker debate, and one of the most anticipated showdowns and Herschel Walker knocked it out of the park. You don't believe me? Listen to this. He told me Black Lives Matter. And if you think about it, senator and Atlanta Jordan has more black baby that is aborted than anything. So if Black Lives Matter, why are you not protecting those baby? And instead of the boarding those baby, why are you not baptizing those babies? Instead of aborting those babies, why aren't you baptizing those babies? Wow. You know, there's room for everybody to have a conversation about the complicated issue of abortion. And as a pro life American, I happen to believe that life begins in conception. And there are thorny issues around. And I don't want to debate abortion, but I'm telling you in the political context of this midterm election in 22 days, we got to be ready to have this conversation.

"Georgia actually has another big debate tonight Monday night between Republican governor Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams. What is the Abrams campaign looking like in Georgia? Yeah, I mean, the thing about Stacey Abrams and her, the way that she thinks about campaigning is kind of the way the whole organization fair fight action kind of works, right? It is about going out and talking to voters that people are ignoring, maybe. And figuring out ways to make sure they're registered to vote. And so it's very much the advocates and activists way to think about campaigning. And I think what she knows with her campaign definitely knows is that this race between Brian campus Stacey Abrams, whoever wins, it's going to be one at the margins. This is a state where the partly because of her work. And has now become a much closer race. For both Warnock and walker and her and Kemp. And so I was talking to someone that was really interesting and they said, you know, they love Stacey. There are democratic strategists and that she has done so much work to kind of shore up the black vote for Democrats in that state. It is one of the reasons that Joe Biden won. It is one of the reasons that black people in the runoffs in 2021 came out for Rafael Warnock and John ossoff and then gave Democrats two Senate seats. They weren't expecting. But she may not enjoy the fruits of that labor. And that's because Brian Kemp is doing really well. You look at you look at a lot of the polling. Yeah. Sorry to interrupt with the polling consistently shows Kemp with a lead over Abrams, a pretty substantial lead outside of the margin of error generally speaking. Yes. Sometimes ten points. Yeah, yeah. And it also generally speaking shows Warnock with a smaller but still a lead over crucial walker. So we get into this dynamic of possible Kemp, we're not voters and what that looks like. Because that seems like such an odd fit. Which is kind of wow to think about, right? Especially when we often put voters in kind of camps. And like you're going to vote all the way and strategist too, not just political reporter strategists. That they're going to, you know, you're going to vote for the top of the ticket and go all the way down. And that is not the case here. Part of that is because of Herschel Walker and his people not feeling like he is conservative enough. There are some Republicans when you talk Republican voters when you talk to them who feel like he doesn't really understand or even care about policy. And Raphael Warnock is a baptist preacher so the juxtaposition between Raphael Warnock and her co walker is very clear. And it's also very clear between Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams in a different way. Brian Kemp is not just a Republican, he is, you know, he is espoused a lot of the kind of far right wing things that you think about when he ran in 2018. Talking about rounding up undocumented immigrants and his own pickup truck in Atlanta, right? And so that is something that I think people both think about and hold in their heads as something, but they also remember Zach and have brought up to me. Democrats, how he basically did his job in 2020 and did not allow Donald Trump to twist his arm and overturn the wood of the Georgia voters in the election. And it's not that they're giving him a gift by putting him back into the governor's mansion. But that is something that they think about. Even some of the Democrats. And so that tells you that the Republicans are especially thinking about that. But the revealing moment, you know, it tells you something about this guy in office. In his benefit, suggests that this is a guy who is his own man. He wasn't going to let anyone push him around. And whether you like it or not, he's going to do what he said he's going to do, right? One of the things that politicians have a problem problems with is actually following through and voters, right? I'm going to do all this stuff and then they don't. Well, you know, Brian Kim, whether you like his policies or not, the man and this dude, what he was going to do, I think that does that kind of honesty. Still does go along with what is especially as we see politics get messier and messier. Well, speaking of doing what we said we were going to do, I have a couple other things that I wanted to touch on. You know, we have a couple more debates this week. We have in Ohio tonight. Tim Ryan versus JD Vance and Youngstown. This is their second and I believe their final debate, unlike the first debate last week, this one will not be televised statewide. In Ohio, we'll be televised locally. Yes, strange to have a statewide race that isn't telling us. But I say that as a native michigander. Also tonight, in Utah, senator Mike Lee, and independent candidate Evan mcmullin, face off in a debate that I believe starts at 8 p.m. eastern. And tomorrow is also I should have three weeks until election day. What is on your mind three weeks out? Oh, lord. I mean, all of the storylines that we've been following are about to come to head, right? How much does Donald Trump weigh on voters 9 times the Joe Biden way on voter's minds, you know, this has been a midterm election that's kind of been choose your own adventure. Where you have Democrats talking about abortion and democracy and some of the bills that they've been able to pass, and then you have Republicans talking about inflation and crime. And so we are going to see what wins out. And I think it is not going to be as it's not going to be as easy to decipher as we probably hope. And I also anticipate that it's going to, we're not going to know a lot of the races on the night of. And so, you know, buckle in for some of these for some of these seats. One other big thing that's coming up that I wanted to mention is you're getting married. And in a move that may surprise people who know just how work intensive this is, you're getting married in advance of election day. We really did not plan it. We were thinking we were mostly just, we loved the place in the venue. And then this was the only time we wanted to get married this year. So it literally is like, we're getting married. I have that Monday off and I'm back to work on Tuesday. That Tuesday is a week out from election day. Exactly, exactly. Exactly. I love chaos in my life. I love chaos. But I guess which is more stressful. Wedding planning or being a White House reporter and playbook co author. Oh my God, wedding planning by far. Planning by far because being a White House correspondent play with co author, it is like, I trained for that. I have experience in it. I never had no damn wedding before, so that is the much harder job. I have to say. Well, no, the demands on your time in particular with the wedding up now just a week in the future here.

"How's it going? I'm playbook deputy editor Zack Stanton, having Monday. We're trying something a little different today to preview the week. I am joined by playbook co author Eugene Daniels for today's playbook daily briefing. Eugene. Welcome back to D.C.. You just visited Georgia, right? I did. I was there for 5 days. And while you were there, you were doing some reporting on the giant marquee Senate race that they have. The senator Raphael Warnock against Herschel Walker. One thing that in the process of your reporting that I thought was kind of interesting, a little behind the scenes peak here is that you went to ebenezer baptist church for Sunday services to do some reporting to talk to parishioners and I think just soak in the whole scene. And while you were there, the reverend Warnock noticed you and was trying to sort of play the refs a little bit, knowing you were in town for some reporting. Yes. Yeah, I did go to ebenezer baptist church. One I wanted to go because I hadn't seen anyone do that yet, really. Like anyone go to the church and kind of just get the scene of what it's like to watch this man who's both the senator Anna reverend. My grandfather was about this preacher. Yes, and so I felt very comfortable there. Maybe too comfortable 'cause I said I would stay closer than most reporters probably would sit in doing one of the, you know, and kind of being in the scene and kind of trying to sneak into the church. And so he's like walks over to me and he's talking about, you know, voting season is upon us. I know because these journalists that come to church on Sunday morning. They sometimes try to sit over in the cut. You know, you know how I know it. Election season, these reporters are in here trying to sneak and he looks at me and he goes, but brother, your Afro is too big. Good to see you, man. You can't hide over the cut. Not with that big old ass. I see you on TV. It was quite, it was quite the thing. It was really funny. My mom has been getting a kick out of it for days. I'm so glad to hear that. So one of the things that you wrote about in a piece that's set up this morning that I wanted to ask you about is there is some hand wringing among some black political strategists, both in Georgia and outside of Georgia about whether or not the Warnock campaign and democratic allies have sort of, as you said, flooded the state with ads. Whether they're doing enough to make the positive case for Raphael Warnock or whether they've focused too much on sort of hammering Herschel Walker. Yeah, one democratic pollster said to me that there could be a misstep in Democrats and Warnock trying to disqualify walker so much and not to re qualify what war not has actually done. And others agree with that. It wasn't just one person who was multiple strategists who are either working for Democrats in that state or are democratic strategists in that state themselves. And I think that's really interesting, right? Because one of the things that we have seen over the years is that politics has been and it has been for many years very negative, right? Knocked down your opponent. That has always been the case. But then you also have to introduce yourself to voters. Something that he said is that folks like Warnock, right? But they don't really have anything to point to that he's done. And I think that's probably the case for a lot of senators, right? Like, I don't think we're not very special in that. When you're a senator and you're one of 50 and then one of a hundred. It's hard to point out the kinds of things that you've done. And so they have to do that themselves. And something that didn't make it into the story. So this is breaking news for you guys here in the podcast. Something that the strategist said that the war not campaign and Warnock himself should be doing is talking about voting rights breathlessly. One voting rights is still a very big issue, especially for democratic voters in the state. It is very important to black voters in the state for obvious reasons. And he is in the pulpit. Not the exact same pool pit, but steps away from the same pulpit that Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at, right? And the church is actually a block away from Martin Luther King Jr.'s home. So it's like there's an easy connection between him as a senator and voting rights. Now the problem with that is that Democrats weren't able to pass the genre forever. So it doesn't have much to show for it. But it wasn't interesting concept. Why are you not talking about this thing where there's such an easy connection? Totally. And you know, it is interesting given the tone of this campaign and how fiercely it's being fought, that you have Warnock who occupies dual rules, where he is both reverend Raphael Warnock, as well as senator Rafael Warnock. And they require very different skill sets in some ways. There is certainly overlap, certainly his abilities as a speaker is comfort with people and I think the clarity with which he talks and thinks is very useful for a politician, but you can say certain things as a politician that you aren't going to say as a pastor. And you can talk about people and criticize them in ways as a candidate that you may be wouldn't as a pastor. So how do you see Warnock sort of inhabiting both of those worlds, the political and the spiritual at once and playing those roles sort of at the same time? Yeah, it was kind of weird because, you know, baptist preachers, politics is a part of their sermons at all times, right? So when he came out and started his sermon, he did talk about policy. He used healthcare as a way to describe people's relationship with God. You know, what the healthcare plan that God had for you. He talked about climate change and how important it was. But for the most part, it was like sprinkled within. And so he does a pretty good job of not talking about the race, right? Like he probably can't. And talk about talk about the race. He tells people to vote at the end of it. He tells he tells them, you know, I ain't telling you to vote for me. You can vote for whoever, but I don't know that anyone believe that. I think everyone understands they're not hoping that they vote for his opponent, but he spoke of compassion a lot in his sermon, which was really interesting. Considering all of the drama happening with walker, right? His campaign has been running negative ads as you do. Knocking walker on personal failings. Of which there is a list for walkers, not just this case. There's been scandal after scandal after scandal. And even on the debate stage on Friday, you know, he kind of he needled him a little bit. But it isn't as nasty as we used to politics being. But it still feels like this juxtaposition, right? That you're walking this fine line between not going too far, right? You can't, you can't really attack him, how probably most Democrats would on that stage because on Sunday you got to get in the pool pair, right? Right. You have to be able to go and tell the people that you are living and trying to live for God like life. And also doing your job. And so we haven't seen this before, right? This is not something, especially modern politics, where we've seen someone have to straddle this line. And the fact that it's a black baptist preacher preaching in the doctor Martin Luther King church in Atlanta, Georgia has found itself kind of being a swing state is really fascinating. So you mentioned the big debate between Warnock and walker that was on

And I can tell you that this is where I was with Trump in 2015 and I turned out to be absolutely wrong because the man's personal life, the life that he once lived, he had turned a way from and he began to live a different life and it showed in his ideological beliefs once he got into office. Now he doesn't deem himself already Trump did and deem himself and he doesn't now as a conservative, he deems himself as just a common sense, politician. Now, going back, going back and forth Herschel Walker, senator Raphael Warnock. We've got to know who these people are. All right, so here's the question. Here's the choice that you have before you choose. Maybe Herschel Walker paid for an abortion in 2009. I may surprise you to say this. Okay. I'm sorry. It doesn't change what I think about him in the senatorial race. One iota anymore. Because what's at stake is a total destruction of this country. You have an opportunity to choose in Georgia those of you that are choosing in this race. You have the opportunity to choose an imperfect man and Herschel Walker, or you have the opportunity to choose a man that claims to be a Christian pastor that is a freaking communist. I'm sorry, the choice is very easy. A man who may have paid for one abortion. I don't know. Maybe he's paid for attention. I don't know. It's wrong. It's sinful. I don't suspect he's doing it anymore. He's a Christian now. He's living out his, he's living out his faith and you have a man that claims to be a Christian that isn't living out his faith that is willing to go along with votes that continue with the genocide, not just well, the genocide of black Americans, but by killing black babies at the I think it's like the number is astoundingly like 20 million or something to that effect since roe V wade. So you have a man that may have had or may have paid for an abortion compared to a man that's willing to use your hard earned tax money to pay for thousands or tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands and perhaps millions in the future of dead babies by abortion. Choose, I'm sorry, this isn't hard. When we live in a perfect society when elections are perfect when we have maybe two decent candidates one that isn't a freaking communist, then you would be able to push Herschel Walker to the side and say, you know what, we can do better. We can't right now. I'm sorry, we can't. So I'm gonna go for this man. That may have paid for an abortion that undoubtedly had a history that was trouble. No doubt about it. No doubt about it. Whatsoever. But you have to choose. Am I gonna choose a candidate? At least politically is going to align with some of my value systems and make sure that we don't turn into a freaking socialist or communist country, or I'm gonna go with a man or am I gonna sit it out and allow a man that is a straight up in my opinion a communist that is going to continue to proliferate abortion across the country. Am I gonna am I going to allow him into office? I think the choices are pretty clear. I think their choice is still stark. I don't think it makes one iota of a difference of who you vote for. Herschel walkers who you vote for if you're in Georgia. It's really as simple as that. You even have black people, listen, the reason why this stuff is and you knew this stuff was gonna come out. For God's sakes, Herschel Walker wrote a book about some of this stuff. All right, so you knew a lot of this stuff was gonna come out. And I'm sorry, I'm sorry what his son, the feelings that his son has for his dad. That's not going to affect the United States of America. What's going to affect the entire country is Herschel Walker's voting record when he wins the Senate compared to Raphael Warnock's if he remains in the Senate. That's what's going to affect America. That's what's going to affect all of you. That is what's going to affect our national morality. And this is where this is where I stay. This is where I am. Going from this somewhat I have to admit naive you and that isn't to say that in the future, I do look for virtuous candidates. I do look for this. I mean, as good as we can get, squeaky clean, that fights for the things that I believe in. I mean, I believe in the Josh hawley's, I believe in the Ted Cruz's of the world, the Mike Lee's other world. These guys appear to be at least for the most part squeaky clean and they and they have our values. But also at the same time, I've got to recognize that their job, their job is to make sure going into this election cycle is that we restore our constitutional system in the United States of America. Rafael Warnock is not going to do that. Ask yourself, this is, I'm sorry, this is really simple for me now. And I wasn't there before because personal life mattered to me a lot. Why? Because I think it is a fair argument to say that character does matter. Of course it matters. A person without character, David harsanyi, of the federalist, wrote a fantastic column, the Herschel Walker abortion accusation changes nothing. He's absolutely right. He writes here character matters. Those who lie and cheat are also prone to corruption. This is true. This is the way that I think this is the way that you think, no doubt about it. No doubt about it. They're prone to corruption. And he says here very good point, and a dishonorable person you agree with can't always be trusted to follow through on their political promises. So you're asking yourself the question, okay, if Herschel walker has done this, will he behave like this if he gets into the Senate? Will he abandon us? Will he abandon the ideological beliefs, which he proclaims or which he professes? I don't think he will. I think he'll stand strong. But here's the other point that David harsanyi makes. He says in a dishonorable person, you agree with Ken always be trusted to follow through on their political promises. Okay, we went through, we went through that now. The problem is that the honorable politician you don't agree with can be. That's a great point. Meaning we can trust that Raphael Warnock based upon his own voting history is going to continue to be a Marxist that's in the Senate. Is going to continue to take this country down the drain. Where does Raphael Warnock stand on crime? Did he ever support Black Lives Matter did he ever support defund the police, did he do that? Is he responsible? In part for the rampant, the skyrocketing crime in the United States of America. Okay, he is. Where does Herschel Walker stand? Where does Raphael Warnock stand on the government spending that has put us in our economy in a downward spiral? Three consecutive quarters of economic decline, where people are struggling to put food on their kitchen table. People are struggling to pay for their mortgage and rent. Where does Raphael Warnock stand? Guys, this is a simple choice. I'm with you. I'm not saying this is easy in the sense that we as Christians as believers are going to have to get off of our high horse and realize what's at stake. Is communism worse than a man who has a troubled past who may have paid for an abortion. It's perhaps maybe the alleged killing of one baby worse than black genocide. That's the choice. I'm sorry, one baby, 20 million. It's a freaking easy choice. And the left does this and we. Oh, we're moral. We're perfect. I was there. That was me. Guys, I gotta tell you, when I first became a Christian, I struggled in my faith. I mean, there were all types of things that I was trying to figure out, including abortion. I didn't know where I stood. I remember, I remember, I took someone to get an abortion. I didn't agree with it, but I drove someone to an abortion clinic. I remember later asking, God, I just don't get it. I just don't get it. Why is abortion wrong? Why is it wrong? I mean, if a lady is in trouble, if I believed all the nonsense out there, I was new in the faith, and I can remember driving in the car alone. By myself, and I would always be listening to talk radio or something. But I turned it down and I just, I just asked, God, why is abortion wrong? And then he spoke to me clearly. He spoke to me clearly. Before you were born, I knew you. And I was like, oh my God. Oh my God. It hit me so hard. It hit me so hard. That's when my views changes an abortion, but I evolved on those views. I believe Herschel Walker has evolved on those on those views. David harsanyi writes this. As far as short of corruption or abuse or negligent homicide, you know, he's going to go for the candidate basically that has ideological decency. He said, I'd prefer the politicians to be principled and virtuous and bright and emphatic, but the ideological decency of a candidate's policies is far more important than all that. I didn't believe that a few years ago. And I still believe that character matters. There's no doubt about it. I will never deny that character does matter. But we have a system in which you can hold Herschel Walker accountable. Raphael Warnock doesn't believe in our system. So you have a man in Herschel Walker that is willing to be constrained or restrained by the confinements of the constitution, whereas you have another man that wants to abolish it. Where does Raphael Warnock stand on open borders? What about that? If he's for open borders is if he's voting for Chuck Schumer, I checked 98% of the time saying nothing about the open borders, consider what's happening at our open borders, whether it is the rape and the human trafficking human smuggling human smuggling of little children, little boys, little girls, where does he stand on that? Where does he stand on the death and the chaos of the Mexican cartels or creating at the southern border? Where does he stand on China and the fentanyl that's coming through our borders? If he stands for open borders, he stands for all of that. Does Herschel Walker stand for that? No, he does not. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I know this is, I know this is hard. I know that we want to get on our moral horse, but there is going to be no freaking America if we don't recognize the choice is communism or a constitutional America. We're at least we can continue to live out our beliefs to speak about our beliefs. Raphael Warnock doesn't believe in that. There's even questions as to whether or not he's a Christian. I mean, this is a guy. If you recall, first another thing, remember, Raphael Warnock, a couple of things that he said in the past. Nobody can serve God in the military. This according to Raphael Warnock. He also opposed voter ID laws before denying that he did. He worked with Stacey Abrams to oppose some of these very things. Guys, this is not hard. This is not hard. One of the things that he said, this was a couple of years ago. Actually, this was in 2021 last year. Reverend and pastor senator Raphael Warnock. He took to Twitter at the time hat tip daily wire and said, the meaning of Easter is more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Warnock said, and I quote, whether you are Christian or not through a commitment to helping others, we are able to save ourself. Huh? In fact, that's not right. We can't. That's not what we believe as Christians. It says here, Warnock's theology amounts to warmed over what's called, I believe it's plagiarism. It's a 5th century heresy that denied original sin and insisted upon the ability of humans to achieve perfection through free will without divine grace. Now, as Christians, we believe in the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, right? We believe that he conquered death. We believe that he redeemed us every single one of us. That he took our sins upon his back, and that's the only reason that we have Salvation. That's the only reason why we don't have to fear the wrath of God. Raphael Warnock does not believe that. I believe that this guy is a communist. That is my opinion. Let me just talk about quickly. Where this guy went to school and some of the beliefs systems that he has. It says here, this is from a family research council. This was a couple of years back. Warner has passed her to ebenezer baptist church in Atlanta for the past 15 years and previously passed her churches in New York, Maryland, and Maryland, ebenezer is the same church where you guys know Martin Luther King Jr.'s senior served as pastor, served as pastor for 40 years and where his son Martin Luther King Jr. served before leading the civil rights movement, Warnock is a graduate..

"raphael warnock" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart

"The murder of George Floyd, we haven't seen anything done. Despite your very powerful speeches on the floor of the Senate, many of them. On voting rights, or even on criminal justice reform, you know, think about that. Voting rights, criminal justice reform, politicians need to center the people they were set to represent rather than their own interests. It is the reason why, even after watching 19 babies, slaughtered in a school, I'm hopeful that we are going to get something done this time. But why are we concerned? Why are we worried? It's because we've seen this terrible movie. This tragedy before, where we saw at the sandy hook. Our movement, after Columbine, 30 years, no movement, even to do the things that 80 to 90% of the country agrees with. Right. Still no movement in the Senate. If we don't get anything done this time, it will be a signal moment of moral failure. On our behalf and it was suggested that the politics is more important than the people. And I just refuse to accept that premise and I have a lot of respect and appreciation for my colleague Chris Murphy and I know that he and others are pushing and I'm doing everything I can. We've got to get something done here for the American people. Let me get you to reflect here because you were a sponsor of the legislation that made Juneteenth a national holiday last year. And along with July 4th, I'm wondering, what did the two holidays say? Not just about the arc of American history, but also about the values this country has stood for, but not always lived up to. I think of America as a freedom caravan. Freedom is not a destination. It's a journey. And we have been on this journey to try to push the country closer to its ideals. You point out rightly, there's July the fourth and then there's Juneteenth. Frederick Douglass, who was a great patriot, loved the country and an abolitionist, had a famous speech in the 1800s before the Emancipation proclamation entitled it is yours not mine. And he talked about the contradiction between the celebration of independence on July 4th and the fact that people were still in slavery in a free country. And so there's always been this tension and I see it played out in the American story and as I point out in my book a way out of no way, I am an embodiment of that complicated story. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the world. I love this country. And that's why I keep fighting for its ideals. I won a hard fought race, which made me George's first black senator, by the way, only the 11th black center and a whole history of the country. The next day I was feeling great, I was on all the morning shows. It was a hard fought race. I was on morning Joe, I was on CBS this morning. I knew I had a ride because I was on the view talking to Whoopi Goldberg. It was a great morning, it was the morning of January 6th. And so by lunchtime, we could see that something was unfolding in the capital and by the end of the day, we had all witnessed the most violent attack on our capital since the war of 1812, anti semitic and racist and xenophobic science, traffic through our capital, and so on January 5th, think about that. Georgia, a former state of the confederacy, sends a powerful message to the nation, regardless of your politics or political party. It's in an African American and a Jew over against the ugly side of our history from the south to the United States January 5th. January 6th, violent assault on the capitol animated by the big lie, the premise that really some people's voices and certain people's votes ought not count. You don't get to determine the direction of the country. And so here's where we really live. We live somewhere between January 5th and January 6th. Between the forces that would divide us or short term political gains because people who have no vision engage in division and the forces that want to push us closer towards our ideals. I choose January 5th. Time and time again, even when I'm disappointed, I choose the U.S.. I choose us people sooner out of many one. Senator reverend Warnock, we're going to let in the control room note right now. We're going to go a little bit over because I had to get you on two things. One, the January 6 hearings are ongoing. Have you learned anything? That has surprised you. And do you think you have you seen enough evidence that Donald Trump should be charged with a crime? Well, I'm going to let the committee do its work and I think what I've learned again what all of us ought to be learning is that democracy is not a noun it's a verb and that it is the most precious thing we have and we have to fight for it. We have to fight for it over and over again. And. What this has done for me is deep in my resolve. To remain vigilant to remain focused, to register as many people as I can, to vote, make sure everybody, every eligible voice is heard in our democracy. That's what's at stake. All right, so the number one thing, the best thing I learned about you in reading a way out of no way in comes on page 29. You write, we children grew up playing a game called the dozens. During which participants try to outwit one another with the best insult. And we played about it played it about as much as we played as much as we prayed, everybody got teased, mercilessly. So I learned to dish it out as well as I could take it. And this is the part that I love. And even became somewhat of a master of the yo mama jokes. You gotta get, you gotta give me one. You gotta give me one. I'm not gonna do that, Jonathan. I need the one. It would take a little while for me to hey. You and I will have to sidebar, but about some of that. I'm gonna hold you to that. Senator reverend Raphael Warnock of Georgia author of a way out of no way a memoir of truth transformation and the new American story. Thank you so much for coming to capehart on Washington Post live. Great to be with you. Thank you..

"raphael warnock" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart

"I remember I remember, I think the first time I probably saw king's face, Jonathan, you might relate was on one of those fans that you have in these churches. It comes from the funeral home. There's usually a picture either Martin Luther King Jr. or the three Kennedy boys or Mahalia Jackson with the kind of beatific look on her face. On that pan and I remember asking, who is that? And I learned as I grew up, and I was a part of that generation of kids whose parents were fighting for doctor king's birthday to become a national holiday. So before they actually signed it into a national holiday, which happened, I think maybe when I was in middle school, my parents were among the group of parents who were already pulling their kids. Out of school, and I remember spending all day at the Main Street wide. Learning about Martin Luther King Jr. and something about his voice and his courage and his ability to move people to stand up on the side of what is good and noble and just and true. Captured my imagination, I often say that I was recruited to morehouse college by the spirit of Martin king junior. I just wanted to go to his college. I didn't know I'd become the pastor of the church where he served. Even though you were born the year after doctor king was assassinated, he was a mentor of yours and you've been following in his footsteps at actually you've exceeded his footsteps because now you're a member of the United States Senate. One of the ways you followed in his footsteps was going to morehouse college and that brings up a question that we got submitted from the audience from Emmanuel Payton here in Washington D.C.. What did your morehouse experience provide you for where you are today? More House is a special place. This last month I was invited to give the commencement address for the class of 2022 and there's no high audit as you could give to a more house man. It is a place that emphasizes the training of the head and the tuning of the heart. You know, Benjamin Elijah Mays, who was president of morehouse during doctor king's matriculation as a student, said that he was disturbed in the language of the day. He said, I'm disturbed about man. I'm disturbed that when we train a man's head, we have no way of knowing for sure that we will that is heart will be tuned. And so he was concerned that about that. And he wanted to build students who would bring their knowledge and their expertise to the public square regardless of their discipline. In order to create without king would later call the beloved community. And there was something about being on that campus walking every day under the shadow of Martin Luther King Jr.'s statue. Pointing with his finger resolutely into the future. That inspired me every single day, Howard Thurman another graduate of that school said that over the heads of her students, more households of crown that she challenges them to grow tall enough to wear. So every day, every year of my life, I've been trying to stretch to reach The Crown, not out of any sense of self aggrandizement, but a deepening commitment to building a humanity and building a world that embraces all of our children. Let's talk about some current events and in particular your race for reelection. Although we should remind people that when you won election last January, January 2021, you were filling out you were filling out the remainder of a term from the previous center. Republican senator, and now you're facing a bit of a tough reelection to a full term full 6 year term in the Senate. Why do you think your race is so competitive? Well, look, I'm honored to serve. First of all, it's a real honor when the people of your state say that we would like for you to represent us and our children. At the highest levels of the American government. So I'm filling out a term, but I think the people of Georgia did an amazing thing in a moment in which the country is divided and there are those who are trying to stoke up the old fires of division. The people of Georgia stood up and then one fell set, it's their first African American senator. And their first Jewish center to the United States Senate. And I think somewhere in glory, Martin Luther King Jr. and rabbi Abraham Joshua heschel or smiling. Because they marched alongside one another. Rabbi heschel said when he marched alongside doctor king, he felt like his legs were praying and that's what we need in a moment like this, people who put their body in the fight and then the struggle, which is why a pastor. And I enjoy being a pastor. The reason I've decided to get involved in something as messy as politics, I'm not alone policy with change and politics for me as a tool to try to advance the work that I've been doing for years, Medicaid, expansion, something I fought for for years here in the state of Georgia because I believe healthcare is a human right. Been fighting for voting rights. We passed the single largest tax cut from the middle and working class families in American history. And now I'm trying to address the pressure that hardworking families are feeling right now amidst this global inflation, I'd like to see us pass a suspended the federal gas tax and I'd like to see us cap the cost of insulin for people who are struggling right now in the state where one in 12 people had diabetes and I'm pushing the president of the United States to do substantial student debt cancellation. Is the president's low approval rating a drag on your reelection? How concerned are you that the president of your own party is in popular and could hurt you in November? Maybe because I'm a pastor who got elected to the Senate and not a senator who used to be a pastor. I honestly don't spend a lot of time thinking about those things. I'm actually worried about our politics, I'm worried that we have created a context right now where too much of the politics is about the politicians where their poll numbers are, who's up and who's down, who's in and who's out, and as a result of that, we have no shortage of transactional politicians who are so focused on the next election that they're not thinking about the next generation. It is my honor to do this work on behalf of my children. I have a 5 year old and a three year old and I know that all of their dad and the United States senator, there's a way in which my children won't be okay and my other people's children okay and I'm honored to do that work. So this focus on politicians as opposed to policy is that the reason why two years after the nationwide protests over.

"raphael warnock" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart

"Senator reverend Raphael Warnock. Welcome to capehart in Washington Post live. Great to be with you. Thank you so much, brother. Great to be with you as well. I'm glad I wore the light blue tie because I usually wear a tie like yours. It would have been twins. I've been all right with me, Jonathan. All right, so let's get into your into your book. Your book opens with a chapter entitled boys like us, and you write about two searing moments. I'll start with the one that involves you. You, your sister, and other passengers kids were frisked after being suspected of shoplifting. And you write, quote, it was, quote, my first brush with the myriad ways in which black people experience hurtful and demeaning racial stereotyping and discrimination in everyday life. Talk about how that incident shaped you. Well, thank you so much again, it's great to be here with you and, you know, that Sunday afternoon we were doing church kids, particularly PKs, breachers kids, do we had a little break in between services. You stay in church all day long. And we were in the grocery store, my sister and I and some friends who were also PKs and I was about 12 or 13 years old. I had a habit then a kind of walking around with my hands in my pocket. Normal kind of adolescent awkwardness. And a man appeared out of nowhere and said, come walk, come go with me. He was dressed in army fatigues. And my sister being taught to obey authority. He started walking. I said, wait, wait a minute. Who are you? And he said, the police, I said, were you by showing me a badge? And he flashed the baths. To make a long story short, they marched us through the store up the stairs where they'd been watching us in an observation mirrored observation booth and, you know, we were all and of course they found nothing because we hadn't taken anything. We were just good kids in between two worst services and that was my experience. My first experience with the kind of humiliation and every day aggressions that people experience. The other more painful moment came later later in life and that involved their rest of your older brother, a police officer, what happened quickly and how did that impact your life's work? Well, what I try to do in that first chapter, Jonathan, the book away out of no way, which by the way, is a phrase that comes out of the church, right? You're not in a church for a long, a black church. And when we see the black church, let me not assume that people know I want you to know that we have never, ever. Meant anything racial exclusive about that. We're talking about the church literally born protesting racism. Protesting discrimination and saying that we have of one blood God has made all nations to dwell upon the face of the earth. So does the church born really affirming our humanity? And the ways in which all of us are part of the human family. But in that first chapter, I juxtapose my story with the story of my own brother, come from a large family. I'm number 11 out of 12 on the first college graduate and I have an older brother who went to prison for nonviolent drug related fantasy was a police officer at the time and he committed serious crimes for which he has expressed deep remorse and I think he's rehabilitated. But part of what you see in that chapter is, you know, with he and I sharing the same book bibs in the same room growing up in public housing. I'm a United States senator today, but it's not lost on me. The thin line between how my life showed turned out and how his turned out. And it's given me a sense of compassion account of ten to heart as a pastor. And I think it informs the way in which I engage issues as a legislator. Right, and as you write in the book, I mean, you worked very hard after your brother's arrest. You worked very hard to make sure he was supported that the justice system treated him fairly as it's supposed to do. In our in our judicial system and you talk about the care and love that you had for your brother well, at the same time, put zeroing in on and focusing on the disparities in our criminal justice system and when your brother was sentenced to life, you did I put my notes. You write life, nobody had died. Nobody had gotten physically hurt. Nobody even got high, yet my brother then a 33 year old man, an army veteran with no prior criminal history was sent to prison for the rest of his life without the possibility of her role. I want to go back to something because you anticipated a question I was going to ask. And that is about the title of the book. A way out of no way, which was not unfamiliar to me because I heard it said by the late great congressman John Lewis, a lot, but for a lot of people who don't know specifically what a way out of no way means talk about that and why that phrase is so resonant for you. Yeah. It's a very common phrase and the black church experience. And again, I'm talking about the Turks that slaves created. And it's been passed on from generation to generation. It is a phrase born of suffering. Of travail and oppression, and yet keeping the faith in the midst of that struggle. Never giving in to hate, never giving in to the kind of bitterness that destroys you, but putting one foot in front of the other. Martin Luther King Jr. used to say that faith is taking the first step when you can't see the full stairwell. And you're not in a black church long before you hear either the preacher or somebody in the choir or some mother in the church giving a testimony as she talks about how God has walked with her through life's valleys and difficult spaces. She says, you know, the lord makes her way, okay? I mix her way. Out of no way. It's a phrase also to acknowledge the importance of human agency. The truth, the unspoken part of that is that as we make our way, God makes a way out of no way. We do the work and we partner with God to make our lives better and I think to make the lives of other people better and it's a phrase by which I've tried to guide my own life in my own journey. Can you talk a little bit about the importance of Congress and Louis to you? Not just because he was a civil rights icon, but you were his pastor. Right. Yeah, John Lewis was a giant of a man. I'm deeply honored to have served as this pastor. There he is. We're standing there and standing there also,.
