Danielle D'Souza Gill Joins Dinesh to Talk About Herschel Walker
"It's always great guys for me to have back on the podcast, my daughter, Danielle de Souza gill, author of the book, the choice, the abortion divide in America, also the weekly host of a program on epic TV. It's called counterculture with Danielle de Souza gill. Danielle, this is a been a crazy political season going on. Let's start by talking a little bit about some of these candidates in the upcoming midterm election. There's an interesting article here and in Fox News dot com and it's talking about the race between Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock. A race that initially walker seemed to be trailing badly and trailing badly in a reddish or red state, so it was a kind of a bad sign. It looks like now walker has pulled even and in some polls he's leading a talk a little bit about that race as you see it. And then I want to ask you more broadly about the maga races around the country. Well, there's no question that Raphael Warnock does not represent the people of Georgia. He is a radical leftist. He's not an old Democrat or anything. And Georgia is, of course, a red state, and yet Rafael Warnock keys pro choice pastor. He's very radical, of course, big Biden supporter, big Friends with Stacey Abrams, people like that. He's definitely going to be hurt by the fact that Biden's done such a horrible job in office. And yet Herschel Walker, he's actually from there. He's actually, you know, someone who's more in the way of a common man because he was a football player, and of course that's kind of a big successful thing. But at the same time, he actually says in his speeches, hey guys, you know, I'm not necessarily the smartest person, but my values align with people of Georgia. So I think that Herschel Walker should be doing much better. So I'm either skeptical of the polling or I think that, you know, maybe people perhaps just don't know him yet and don't know how bad warnick is because Warren is such a big orator. He thinks he's the next Martin Luther King because he's a pastor and a church in Atlanta
Democrats Get Nervous As Polls Trend Upwards for Republicans
"Democrats are getting increasingly nervous. Remember politics is not just about what happens at one moment in time. It is a trajectory. It is a pattern of events that leads to a culminating or a culmination, a culminating event in early November. Right now there is a trendline that is very disturbing for the Democrat party. It seemed they got very, very hot over the summer and now the new polls that are coming out, which I know a lot of people say Charlie, I don't trust the polls. Well, these are polling. This is polling from liberal firms that are showing some Republicans starting to get separation speed. And we're seeing it on the ground in real time. Emerson has Ron Johnson up four points in the great state of Wisconsin. We were just there for our turning point action event in Green Bay, Wisconsin. In Georgia, which is a flip Herschel Walker up two points on Raphael Warnock. In Texas, Greg Abbott up 11 points on Robert Francis o'rourke. The latest poll out of Arizona shows Carrie Lake up four points on Katie hopps. And the trend continues. And the pattern of polling that we are seeing is Democrats. Are going down dramatically. Now, we are seeing this and we should celebrate this in the moment, but wait a second. This is not the election. This is not the entire ball game. The question is, with the trend improving with the gap tightening, Democrats are now going to become very, very desperate. If, for example, it is true that Herschel Walker wins in Georgia. If it is true, that Ron Johnson will win in Wisconsin. If it is true, that Adam laxalt wins in Nevada. Even with that, even with Blake masters and Oz not making it across the finish line, which I think they will, it's a Republican Senate.
Are We Living Through a Simulation?
"Living through a simulation? A simulation that is funded by Silicon Valley billionaires. With an intent to try to destroy the west to try to misrepresent what the maga movement America first movement is all about. When you are overseeing an artificial regime, a potemkin village. A parent's party that is grassroots, that is authentic, that is real. That stands as a huge threat to you. They have no choice but to use leg irons handcuffs and simulation tactics on social media. You see the parents party that is rising up in my personal opinion is gaining steam. I know there was a lot of anxiety out there myself included over the summer about the midterm elections. But I see Democrats starting to tumble the polls. I see Democrats losing steam and Republicans are getting on message. JD Vance was fabulous this weekend with Donald Trump. Oz is within striking distance of socialist Shrek. John fetterman. Herschel Walker gaining huge ground against Raphael Warnock Blake masters in striking distance against Mark Kelly. Adam laxalt looks like he's in a great spot in Nevada, but Adam lacks hole has to win by at least two points because those culinary unions in Clark county, they know how to do highway robbery there. I'll tell you what. And we have some internal leaking, not leaking, that's not the right word. We have some internal crumbs. These are Nancy Pelosi term. Of some people that are saying, hey, Oz is about to overtake fetterman. It's about to flip.
Raphael Warnock Is in Trouble
"The story of Herschel Walker running for office in Georgia and Rafael Warnock is in trouble. Georgians have figured out just how crazily radical Raphael Warnock is. Well, everybody knew it before the election. How Georgia got this wrong with John ossoff and Raphael Warnock. If Georgia had gotten it right and only one of the two Republican candidates won, we're not in the mess we're in today. And I'll never ever get over Georgia Republicans staying home. It's infuriating. And I know I need to let it go. One of these days I will.
Tucker Carlson: What Is Going on in the Georgia Senate Race?
"About Raphael Warnock leading in Georgia cut ten. In June, Democrats raised $64 million online from 4 million people. That same month, this June, Republicans raised only $26 million online from just over a million donors. From the first quarter to the second quarter of this year, donations to the Republican Party dropped by more than 12%. By contrast, donations to the Democratic Party are up more than 20%. That is not good at all, not simply because you need money to run a political campaign, but because money is to some extent a measure of commitment and intensity. And you see the same dynamic playing out in individual races across the country. For example, last quarter Raphael Warnock that would be the thoroughly mediocre democratic senator from Georgia, the guy who was caught on video appearing to commit spousal abuse and remember that that guy raised more than $12 million online. His opponent, Herschel Walker, who everyone likes, raised less than half of that. So far, Raphael Warnock has raised an astounding amount of money. He's hauled in more dollars online than 7 Republican senatorial candidates combined. Candidates in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, and Georgia. Combined. Herschel Walker is now trailing Raphael Warnock by ten points. And this is happening in a state. They tell us when for Joe Biden by a margin of about one third of a percentage point. That is bizarre. What is going on here? And Tucker is right to be asking that question,
Is the RNC Sabotaging America First Candidates?
"A lot of people are talking about in great numbers or emailing us freedom Charlie Kirk dot com, is it really true that the fundraising gap is immense. Yes, play cut one 14. Look at the gap between Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock, cut one 14. So far, Rafael Warnock has raised an astounding amount of money. He's hauled in more dollars online than 7 Republican senatorial candidates combined. Candidates in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, and George. Combined. Herschel Walker is now trailing Rafael Warnock by ten points. And this is happening in a state. They tell us when for Joe Biden by a margin of about one third of a percentage point. That is bizarre. What is going on here? What is going on here? Democrats are heavily funding their candidates. They know that a red wave is looming and they're trying to mitigate it, and I believe the Republican establishment is far too willing to help them do it.
Herschel Walker Talks Georgia Senate Race
"Raphael Warnock condemned that because I hope you would condemn a racist attack on Raphael Warnock. I know you would. But that was just. Yeah, I would. And he's not going to condemn it. You know, one thing about senator and I've said it many times. Some of the things he said is not biblical. Some of the things he does, you can tell that he's not even a good senator because he doesn't seem to represent the people of Georgia. You know, he's voted with Joe Biden 96% of the time and a lot of those policies do not match what is great for Georgia. So, you know, he's not going to condemn anything like that right now. I've been they've spent almost $34 million against me right now with lies and with different things, but I've said many times, no weapon formed against me and she had prosper
A Rather Suspicious IRS Job Posting That Has Since Been Deleted
"So yesterday, there was a job posting that someone found on the wet on the Internet. Now, it seems as if there's a lot of enthusiasm going on at the IRS right now. The IRS is really excited. They get 87,000 new IRS agents that would never have happened if we would have won the Georgia Senate runoff. There would have been blocked. But the IRS decided to post a job opening. Now remember, the IRS has a weird and bizarre amount of ammunition and bullets. They've been buying up ammunition all across the country. The IRS is now posting jobs that says the following. In order to get this job, you must adhere to the highest standards of conduct, especially in maintaining honesty and integrity. Okay. You must be able to work a minimum of 50 hours per week, which include irregular hours, and be on call 24/7, including holidays and weekends. Okay. Maintain a level of fitness necessary to effectively respond to life threatening situations on the job. Wow, wow wait, wait. The IRS? I mean, that audits people and tells people they're late on their taxes. That's weird. Continues. In order to get the job at the IRS, you have to be able to carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force if necessary. This is it right here on screen. This is on the IRS's website, everybody. They just scrapped it as soon as we and many other Sean Davis, the great Sean Davis, started the publicize it. The IRS then says be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments. That's the internal revenue services new job posting. 87,000 new IRS agents made possible by kyrsten sinema and Joe Manchin and Mark Kelly and Raphael Warnock, the house has to still vote on it, but the IRS is now advertising. You have to quote maintain a level of fitness necessary to effectively respond to life threatening situations on the job and carry a firearm. Again, this is these are the tax people.
Why Does the Inflation Reduction Act Include IRS Hyper-Funding?
"This bill, as we mentioned last week and tried to warn, adds $80 billion to the IRS's budget and 87,000 new staff members to the Internal Revenue Service. 80 7 thousand new IRS agents. That makes the IRS larger than the FBI, border patrol and the State Department combined. That's what happened over this last weekend. And remarkably Democrats in tough Senate races like Mark Kelly and Raphael Warnock, they don't care. They voted for it because they know that they're still going to get over a $100 million in Democrat cash as the Democrats are now representing the white wealthy party, Republicans are getting outspent almost every race across the country. Because the values of wokeism are most consistent with miserable, wealthy white people that live in Malibu and Manhattan, and they want to spread their misery and imperialist upon the rest of us. The IRS adds 87 $1 billion. To their budget.
Eric Schmitt Wins Missouri Republican Senate Primary
"Good Wednesday morning to you. It's the morning after election day. Eric Schmidt is the nominee in Missouri. That's a giant relief he's going to win handily, attorney general Schmidt. And now we have the field all but set. There are ten key races for the United States Senate. And I always focus on the Senate. Anyone who's listening to this show for years now. By the way, Kerry Lake is about 20,000 votes ahead of Karen Robson. I think Carrie Lake is won it, not quite sure yet. No one's called it, tutor Dixon is the nominee for governor in Michigan. And Blake masters, the nominee in Arizona. None of those unexpected, the Taylor, the Kerry Lake Karen Robson race is a dead heat statistically, and the polls have that completely wrong again. Do not read the polls. It's sort of like, I know Herschel's of Raphael Warnock. And I know the polls show that he's not. And I know that Doctor Oz is ahead of John fetterman, the polls show he's way behind. He's not. It's just that they don't know how to pull anymore and they won't admit it and they continue to use it because the media is left wing. And they don't want to make it obvious. Look, here is the rundown. I just tweeted this out. I hope you'll do two things. To begin this morning, might be a little bit. While trying to get my voice because that late night following results last night until I finally couldn't see any way to figure out who was going to win in Arizona's governor race. Eric, Eric Schmidt had won the Missouri race fairly early, as had tutor Dixon the Michigan race. There are four big races last night. Michigan governor, and my guy lost, I wanted Kevin rinky, but I kind of knew that tutor Dickson was going to win when Donald Trump endorsed her. I really mattered the most to me with Eric Schmidt winning an Missouri. I've got to tell you, we have a safe red seat there, a safe, deep red state that could have been thrown away and we didn't throw it away 'cause they nominated the strongest, very competent candidate when the show me state nominated Eric Schmidt.
An Update on Georgia Political Polls
"What's going on in Georgia, by the way? There is some new polling data out. A couple of weeks ago, Raphael Warnock was up double digits over Herschel Walker now, walker is up slightly over Warnock, and both of the very different polls, but both of the polls show Brian Kemp with a sizable lead about a ten point lead over Stacey Abrams for governor and then of course we're not going to walk her for the Senate. But walker is facing all sorts of troubles with the secret children, a lot of allegations out there and it's a pretty scandalous stuff. But the concern is that this may be a very tight race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, throw in what's happening in Pennsylvania with Doctor Oz, and there are some concerns that the Republicans may not be able to take back the U.S. Senate because of weak candidates. Now, I'm going to rely on you people in Georgia because it seemed to me the only reason that Herschel Walker was selected is because he was a football star and everybody knew it. Everybody knew his name. That was pretty much it. Because you actually had some rock solid Trump conservatives, true conservatives, conservatives who could debate, conservatives who could get out there and fight, conservatives who actually lived in Georgia. And those people were shoved aside. And the decision was made, Herschel is your guy, whether he debates or not, it doesn't matter. So I'm hoping I'm hoping that actually pays off for the Georgia Republicans. Because if Doctor Oz loses and Doctor Oz is not doing well in the polls, doctor nobody knows what Doctor Oz is up to. At least Herschel Walker is so clinging to president Trump.
"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..

"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.

"Is there no place? Yes, and one acquaintance. Lieutenants of the movement. They both work very closely with that king. And it's one of the honors of being at ebenezer baptist church and serving as the pastor. These are folks that I've moved in and around for the last several years. But I first met John Lewis when I was about a student at morehouse college. We had an event at the school. We had invited a number of public officials to come and John Lewis was the only one who showed up. I don't really remember what he said that Mike. But the fact that he was there with us meant the world, his presence. Spoke volumes and I think of him a lot. I was able to work with him on a number of Sundays. We did something called souls to the polls. Where we would take people to vote and we'd wrap the bus and paraphernalia. So we'd encourage other people on our way to the polls to make their way to the polls. He never gave up the fight, and I think about him, especially in his dark and difficult days when there was the temptation to give in to cynicism and despair, I think of John Lewis because, you know, when he was crossing that Edmund pettus bridge, with nothing but a backpack and a trench coat, you know? He had no reason to think that he could win. And I remember thinking about that Jonathan as I was preparing to officiate his funeral. I said to myself, what was John Lewis thinking when he was crossing that bridge? Here's what I know. He was not thinking that one day at his funeral. Three American presidents will show up with show up. To pay homage on both sides of the house. He was not thinking that one day he'd be the recipient of a Presidential Medal of Freedom. I suspect that he was just hoping to stay alive that day so that he could fight the next day, but somehow by some stroke of destiny mixed with human determination and courage, he crossed the bridge and built the bridge at the same time to the future. The arc a little bit closer to justice and it reminds me that what we have to do is get up every morning, make our way, and we don't know when the light, when the sun will break through, but it's our job to wake up, show up and do the hard work. I'm going to talk about another man who was instrumental a pivotal in your life who made you get up early on Saturday mornings, not knowing exactly what you, why you had to get up early on a Saturday morning, but he said, get up and you did. And you write about this in your book, but it was also in an essay in The New York Times yesterday. And I want to read this because it is among the most beautiful tributes I've read from one person to another. But especially from a son to a father, your father passed away years ago, but you write my father represents the salt of the earth, blue collar brother, brilliant, despite not having a college degree or prestigious credentials, innovative enough to create miracles with his hands, the kind of black man whose life doesn't make the headlines for either shooting hoops or shooting bullets for breaking out or for breaking in. So like most among us, he remains unseen. He loved his wife. He took care of his family. He shepherded the people in his church. He endured racism without becoming bitter, and he loved his country. He was a he was a walking sermon. That gave me chills just reading it again. Talk about your dad. Oh, that was my dad. And look, I was born in a poor family, but I feel like I hit the jackpot because I had two great parents. And I don't say that if that's not your story, I get it. And if all of us are blessed in various ways, people show up in our lives, but I have great two great parents. My dad was an older father born in 1917. He was 52 years old. The age I am now when I was born. And you know, my experience was this man waking me up every morning. He didn't believe in sleeping late. Fears work ethic, which he passed on to us. His idea was you wake up and you get dressed and you put shoes on. And one morning, let's say in that essay, I asked him, you know, he said, I got something. There's something for you to do. I said, do what? He said, I don't know. I'll figure that out later. Just get dressed. Put shoes on. And that was just serving every Sunday morning. And I say serving because he was a preacher. But during the week, my dad who was not seminary trained. And learned like a lot of black creatures and an apprenticeship model. During the week he was an entrepreneur, small businessman who had his family by picking up old junk cards. That he would load up on the back of a truck, the mechanisms of which he designed himself. You know when you're young, you don't have sense enough to appreciate fully the genius in front of you. I don't know where my dad learned to weld to put those things together. He would even write it on a piece of paper. But he would create these mechanisms and load these cars stacking one on top of the other on the back of an old truck. Take them to chatham still, that's how I took care of his family. During the week, the jump man picked up old broken cars and other thrown away on Sunday morning, I saw him left broken people. Reminding them of their value. And that was my dad and his life inspires me to this very moment. Is that what then no pun intended, drove you to the pulpit to become a preacher? He certainly was my first example. And my mother, by the way, is also a pastor. They have been wonderful examples, but they never pressured me to go into ministry. There was no pressure at all, after all, we were very large family. But it became clear early on that that was my path. That's something I figured out early on. My parents were my earliest examples. But pretty early on, there was another voice that absolutely captivated my imagination and that was the voice and ministry of Martin Luther King Jr.. I was born a year after doctor king's death. He died in 1968. I was born in 1969, but early on in my childhood,.
"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,.
Politico Deletes Tweet About 'First Black Supreme Court Justice'

Now they don't know history at all. Now the first black ever on the Supreme Court was thurgood Marshall. And then I believe clarence Thomas was the second. Is that correct? That's it. So there's been two black people on the Supreme Court in our history. Thurgood Marshall, and clarence Thomas. There's also one currently serving clarence Thomas. But Politico, which again was the one that helped get Joe Biden got elected because they covered up the entire story with Russia, Russian disinformation, smoke screen, tweeted out the following, quote, katangi Brown Jackson will likely be confirmed as the first black Supreme Court Justice by the end of this week. Here's how we'll expect it to go. How these people went to college, which is exactly why they don't know anything. Kandy Brown Jackson will likely be confirmed as the first black Supreme Court Justice by the end of this week, Politico tweeted that out. They deleted the tweet and then tweeted this correction quote for the record. This replaces an earlier tweet that stated kanji Brown Jackson could be the first black Supreme Court Justice. It should have said first black female Supreme Court Justice we apologize for the error. I could have wrote that for them. We knew what was happening. Senator Mike Lee ripped them, play cut 22. Earlier today, there was a Politico tweet Politico sent out a tweet reading his follows, saying kitani Brown Jackson will likely be confirmed as the first black Supreme Court Justice by the end of this week.

Democrats Lobby Manchin on Budget Deal
"News of the day is Joe Manchin. Joe Manchin got caught by maru rajah going to the car yesterday with Raphael warnick at his side and got asked about Bill back better. Here's what he said. No, no. In general, there's still hot talk. What do you mean you wouldn't say that when the president's not moving closer towards you? No, no, I don't think I'm asking anybody to move. I want people to understand. Where I am. And I think that that's worth getting about more of an understanding. Which is where? Where are you? Hey, you enjoyed it. I want to know how you would answer something like that. Are you anywhere to the point where you can devote yes on proceeding? I gotta check my pastor here. I can't. I can't get in negotiations like this right here. That means that means we're getting ready pass. I knew my pastor was wise. Are you anywhere? They seem to think that they can change the rules and pass voting rights along straight party lines. Do you feel that way? My discussions are good with bipartisan Republicans Democrats. The rules change should be done to where we all have input in this rule chain because we're going to live with them. Because we're going to be in the minority sometime. They're the majority back and forth. I think that's let me translate Joe Manchin for you. He likes where I fail warning. He's no dummy. He's been elected since 1982 in West Virginia. Right, Joe Manchin has been winning elections since 1982. So he got Raphael Warnock walking with him. I got to ask my pastor, it's funny funny funny. It uses up 30 seconds of the walk. He doesn't commit to anything. He's not buying Bill battery. He's not going to get a voting rights change through. Joe Manchin, God love you. Everyone pray for

Kelly Loeffler sells stake in WNBA team after clashing with players over Black Lives Matter
"We have exciting news in the wnba. That kelly lafler has exited the building. Bob bub-bubba i feel like we should have celebration. Music will and even better a you. Part of that ownership new ownership group includes montgomery has an actual wnba player. And you know who has a podcast in who is a somebody who's been a real voice on issues equity all summer and beyond you know well into the past tradition in a history of ad. I think that's important because it means that the the voice of anti black lives matter is now being replaced by someone who can fully embody the spirit and direction of the wnba. I could not agree more and the power that the wnba has had. I mean we talk about when we talk about you know leading the movement. The black lives matter movement. We talk so often about the nfl or the nba. But really the wnba. And we've said this before. I mean they started this movement. Back in twenty fifteen in the sports world and You know they basically made raphael warnock. Who's now a us. Senator a player in this when they all wore those warnock shirts i think at that point he was voting. Nine percents Who pulling at nine voting. He was polling at nine percent And he wound up winning. And i think that the power that these women have in the way that they have used their platform for good and for inclusion and equity and making the world. A better place is something. That is such a tonic. To see it what we've gone through the past four years so i i'm thrilled to see it. I'm glad kelly law is out of the wnba. Imagine playing for someone who denies that your skin color that you as a human being matter. I mean she you know she tried to parse it a little bit more subtly than that she was talking about she would talk about the black lives matter organization as opposed to the concept of black lives mattering and i think she did that deliberately so that she could say things like i mean she said some really you know i i would say pretty crazy or just you know in such bad faith things such as that black lives matter doesn't want jesus in the church in you know that's just the tip of the iceberg and it just is so deeply offensive to people who are deeply committed attack but what i love about the wnba an and the way that they inserted themselves into those georgia senate races is that you now have a group of predominantly black women who are somewhat responsible for having a black vice president have to go into the senate to break a tie yet and that is i mean i just. I love the way that that is an expression of power but this is not over in georgia is already passing some legislation to make it more difficult to vote did particularly pinpoint Practices that black communities have used to get out the vote like souls to the polls closing the ability of pulse be open on sundays in the future and kelly law flir is not exiting from politics. She is actually spearheading some of those georgia movements to make voting more difficult for community of Communities of color. And so i you know this is. This is going to be interesting because it's you know this is not the credit should not be rolling here. This is still a very a live issue for georgia and for the rest of the

"This Georgia Rae's that I was just mentioning a moment ago. And boy things just got really interesting. In the last 24 hours. The Reverend Raphael Warnock, the Democrat. They're running in one of those races against Senator Kelly Leffler. He, uh I'm looking back at a Baltimore sun peace. Beverly from 2002. This is August 3rd 2002. But the headline city ministers accused of obstructing abuse probe Obstructing abuse probe. To Baltimore ministers. The sun rights have been charged with obstructing a police investigation into suspected child abuse at a church run camp in Carroll County. The reverence Rafael Gamma Lyle War noch 33 Marc Andre Wainwright 30 of Douglas Memorial Community Church are accused in court documents of trying to prevent a state trooper from interviewing counselors. At the church's camp for this out in Eldersburg, a state trooper assigned to the case that the neither of the clergymen is a suspect in the child abuse investigation, But the officer would not describe the nature of the suspected abuse and the article goes on to write. That the these two men, including Raphael Warnock, had interrupted a police interview of one of the counselors who was there, by the way, voluntarily answering the questions of these officers. And then the investigators tried to move away from where Warnock was. They brought it to a picnic area. The interview and they kept asking about Okay, tell us about these allegations of child abuse. They're trying to investigate how Children were abused. At this camp. And Raphael Warnock and his fellow minister, They kept interfering with the police attempting to get answers on that, rather than helping the cops. Get to the bottom of how Children were being hurt. They tried to interfere with the investigation. One Maryland state trooper Diane Berry said this quote. I've never encountered resistance like that at all. She wrote. She's with the state police, child and sexual assault unit. She was at the time again. This is this is 2000 and two when this article Um, was published. And She said she'd never encountered it all. So they arrested and charged the men. For obstructing The investigation because that's how much they were interfering. So Beverly. That's the public record already that stuff that stuff. We already know how much has that played a role in this race in Georgia. I think it's going to play a major role in. I just want to provide some some commentary on that as far as My father was a pastor. So I know how ministers usually treat these types of situations if he ever had any person whether child or adult even claimed that there were some There's some evidence from some example of abuse in any way whatsoever. He always contacted the police, he said. Anybody who is in a position of authority and a church in a synagogue, etcetera. Has a legal requirement to always bring in the police, social services. Whatever happens to be if there is any incident at all. So the fact that we have on record on record, not just the child who this Allegedly happened to that. Actually, people involved in the investigation coming out and saying that this took place that at least the obstruction of it to me. This is crazy and extremely damaging, damning. And how could this not play into the election and the only person who's even mentioned the beginnings of what we're talking about? Was Kelly left her when she mentioned her during the debate. She raised it during her debate with Raphael Warnock and it was brushed aside by the press is like whatever it's you know, He didn't do anything wrong. He wasn't personally accused of sexual abuse. You're making too much of this. What Beverly just said is completely correct. Rafa Rafael, We're not Is the boss man. He's in charge of what's going on at this camp. He is held to account for the activities that a camp and he should be concerned about the well being of his flock, and instead what he was doing was obstructing an investigation into the abuse of Children at the camp. Now. That's according to the police. It's according to the cops, and according to especially to that one troopers that she had never encountered resistance like this in her entire career. After she encounter But she still Raphael Warnock that day. Now. Beverly saluted, too. We now have further evidence of what actually occurred. Yesterday, A lot of good men at the Washington Free Beacon published a jaw dropping report about the specifics. It involves a young man now 30 years old Anthony Washington who was one of the Children who was allegedly abused at this camp in Maryland. Camp part of this out again. This is the time that Raphael Warnock was overseeing the campaign. Here's what he alleges. He alleges that you're in. That's right. Human waste was thrown on him by camp counselors that he was doused with urine. Apparently, there was some sort of bucket where the kids were going to the bathroom or something. And somebody took that bucket and doused him with it. When I say somebody one of the counselors at the camp doused him with urine, that's the allegation and then locked him outside of his own cabin. So that he couldn't sleep inside. The cabin also forbade him from contacting his parents during this entire episode. Now we know this because There was a 2003 lawsuit from his parents that ended two years later, and Washington says that he and his family received a big financial settlement. In that process, and these events again, this all transpired in 2002. This would be exactly at the time frame when the cops were investigating the abuse of these Children. And Washington. Whatever he's doing in his life, now, he he didn't realize that Warnock is running for Senate. But when he was asked about this, he said, Hey, you know Mama. You know your former Reverend, The guy who was in charge of your camp, The place where you say you were abused. He's running for Senate now in Georgia. This is where Washington said Well, I don't think nobody like Warnock should be running for damn Senate. Nowhere running a camp like that He should not be running for government, he said. And This is I mean, pretty tough. Not only did they talk to the kid, he's again he's now 30. They talked to his sister. They were able to get proof from the court dockets that this all took place. A lot of good men. The Washington Free beacon. They have their ducks in a row here. This is a real story, and it really reflects on Rafael. War knocks judgment. Beverly Yeah, a couple of things here. First of all, we know sometimes that people's characters Are brought into question based on something they did in high school. We're talking about an adult who was in charge of Children at a camp. We're not talking about decades ago. We're also talking about something that has not only been corroborated by the police involved by the person who said this happened to him, But we have court documents as well. This seems like a very solid case against him and what people have to ask themselves. Is this the type of person they want leading our state, and I think we could look to this now 30 year old man and saying, I think we have a big case to say This is not who we want in charge of the state of Georgia. Yeah. Yeah. Pretty amazing stuff. This this story just breaking in the last 24 hours. How will it affect things in Georgia? Will we see a sustained media blackout?

"To get to the shower a little bit later on in the hour. We'll get to the woke revolution that is happening across the country and its consequences. But we begin at this hour, with Joe Biden calling for unity. All at the same time. His people are basically calling you efforts. Joe Biden was down in Georgia campaigning for Raphael Warnock and Jonah's off, both of whom are radical. Jonah's self is a trust fund. Socialist and Raphael Warnock is an actual crazy socialist leftist Marxist insane person. Raphael Warnock is a person who's like hot on Castro had almost Farrakhan hot on Linda's Our store like everybody who sucks. He He loves immensely. And this is somebody that Joe Biden desperately wants to be in United States Senate because you see, here's the thing for all the talk about how the Republicans have broadened the Overton window to allow people in who shouldn't be. The Democrats have never ever narrow the Overton window on their left. There's nobody on the left, who is too far left for the Democratic Party. It just does not exist. The Republicans have cast out from, among them people like representative Steve King, who was replaced in the last election cycle in a primary. She now belongs to a different Republican Veenstra. But you don't see the same thing from the Democrats. You just don't Republicans looked at Roy Moore in Alabama. They're like, no, we're not gonna do that. And Doug Jones was a Democrat end up representing Alabama as a senator, which isn't saying his Alabama is probably the most red state in America. For Democrats, however, you get Raphael Warnock up there, praising Louis Farrakhan. And talking about the wonders of Jeremiah Wright and your minds like you know what we need. This guy in the Senate really, really need this guy in the Senate. But don't worry. I'm an old fashioned moderate a super old fashioned moderate so Hadn't showed up in Georgia. And started talking about why you need all of these people in the Senate. He said about the Georgian voters that you voted in record numbers in order to improve the lives of every Georgian, and you voted as if your life depended on it. Which, by the way is the worst line. I hate that line so much. Your life does not depend on your vote in the United States of America. If your life depends on your vote in the United States of America, you don't live in a free country anymore. Truly it is that simple. Maybe your lifestyle depends on about that fair. Maybe the decisions you make in your life. Are impacted by your vote. I think that's true. But your life itself depends on your vote. If that is true, you are no longer living in a constitutional republic. You are living under threat of the extermination. Like you know, the citizens of Hong Kong, for example. But this kind of stuff is just It's egregious. It's egregious. Then he says, Guess what? You're gonna have to do it again. So this is Captain I'm gonna take down the temperature here, Joe Biden to take down the temperature. Also, if you vote or die like literally, If you don't vote, then my political opponents will probably look to kill you. That's that's wild, wild stuff. So Joe Biden then marked the Republican senators from the state, Leffler and Purdue. He was going after left, Lauren produced both of whom have challenged the state election results. In Georgia. There's still an outstanding lawsuit in Georgia over voter regularity and voter fraud. It is the sole outstanding serious lawsuit. By team Trump with regard to the possibility of voter fraud and voter irregularity, and that will still be adjudicated in court. But here was Biden going after Kelly Leffler and David Perdue? No. Didn't stand by you? No did nothing..

"I mean, can you imagine the law even let you do that? But All right. Nobody's gonna do that The courts are not going to get are not gonna intervene their federal judges who are staunch Trump supporters who were nominated by Trump, who are purely political. The appointees, and every one of them has said no Because imagine this. The philosophy here is if a Republican loses the race, then it is rigged. You're going to see that happen in Georgia in the race between David Perdue, A and John OSS off us off being the Democrat Purdue being a sitting senator. Same thing with Kelly La Flor, who's been a sitting senator. She was appointed by Brian Kemp, the the governor and the Reverend Raphael Warnock, the Democrat. If it turns out the Democrats win, I guarantee you it will start all over again. The lawsuits It will be. It was a rigged election. It was stolen by the Democrats. I promise you that's going to happen, and it's going to be egged on by the president and the philosophy behind all of this. Is that the only true democratic election that exists in this country is if a Republican winds Democrat cannot be democratically elected effectively. It's one party. Why even bother with other parties, so I want you know what China does. Vietnam does. It's one party. No, I mean that's effectively what is being asked for by the staunchest of the, uh, that's don't steal the vote or whatever the phrase is stopped the steel So today. Is it now? What if the states don't meet the deadline on Lee was constant has until midnight. But if it doesn't meet the deadline has not certified its result. That increases the risk that Congress then decides. If the state's electors now keep in mind, Congress has to accept the state electors. And this Congress have the ability to say no. We don't accept those state electors. We want a new group of electors notwithstanding the popular vote. Well. Theoretically, Republican led state legislatures can decide to send Trump Electricity, Electoral College even if the state goes to Biden. So there are holes here. In which any candidate Can literally simply overturn the election. Not withstanding that the other candidate has won the election. It's a question of using these I mean, they're tiny little pinprick loopholes. But and of course it's not gonna happen. We all know that. And it's Oh, here's a quick one. By the way, and you may have not known this The number of electors is 538. You need to 70 to win. And you know what? That number 5 38 is. It's a number of members of Congress. There are 538 districts in the United States, Members of Congress, and every state has an elector equal to the number off Congress. People that it has. There's where the 2 70 magic number comes up, and it's always been that way. So we'll see what happens. What happens next? Well, the safe harbor deadline passes today. The state's electors have another six days to vote like paper ballot before Congress needs to count the electoral votes. And that will happen on the seventh 14th, where the president of the Senate Who is that? Mike? Pence, announces the results of the Electoral College. And then the next step after that is the inauguration of the new president and S O Pence gets to announce that Trump has lost All right. That was only beaten by Al Gore, who was the vice president and he had to announce that George W. Bush became where would become the next president. Racial divide in Rio Open classrooms.

"When I got in this race about 14 months ago, I was telling everyone that Georgia is the most competitive state in the country. I know that you all believe me, but there are some who did not. Well, we have proven in these last few weeks. The change has come to Georgia. Change is coming to America and retirement is coming for Senator David Perdue. What kind of change? Well, why don't we examine the other race? Raphael Warnock, who's protected by the media and will continue to be protected by the media, is a deeply deeply radical candidate. How radical is Raphael Warnock? He praised Reverend Jeremiah Wright's speeches. Warnock has for years been one of the most vocal defenders rights. Infamous 2003 G D America servant, which compared US leaders stall Qaeda and claimed HIV was invented by the government is way to kill black people is, according to the Washington Free Beacon. According to Politico, the Democratic candidate is expected to face negative ads the target his ties to Jeremiah Wright. Warnock has a long history of anti Israel extremism, Leffler wrote on Twitter. That is absolutely true. He gave a speech last like this year talking about how Israel is an oppressive regime murdering Palestinian innocents. Not only that. Wright came to national attention in 2008, obviously as the spiritual adviser to Barack Obama and then John McCain because he was a pansy in that election, refused to mention Jeremiah Wright anywhere throughout the election, even though he was an ideological mentor to Barack Obama. Warnock is an open defender of Jeremiah Wright in 2014. He prays that GD America sermon in a speech at the Auburn Avenue Research Library, he said, quote you ought to go back and see if you can find and readers I have the entire sermon was a very fine sermon. You're my right was right when he said the attack on him in a real sense was an attack on the Black Church. The message of Jeremiah Wright was the public policy has consequences. In 2013 Warner called Wright's sermon a very fine homily in his 2013 book, the divided Mind of the Black Church. Actually compared Jeremiah Wright to the biblical Prophet Jeremiah. This would be the same term I write who engaged U. S and Israel of engaging in state terrorism and said that September 11th was America's chickens coming home to roost. And that is that is Rafael Lorna, who's running for Senate in Georgia right now. Raphael Warnock. Also, it turns out was implicated. He was actually arrested in 2002, apparently after allegedly obstructing a police investigation into suspected a child abuse. Tom Cotton. The senator from Arkansas tweeted out about this yesterday, he said in 2002. When the police investigated suspected child abuse and Raphael Warnock church camp for Children, Warnock was arrested for obstructing the investigation. Well, the media asked Raphael Warnock why he interfered with the police investigation. According to original reporting at time, Warnock and Marc Andre Wainwright, the assistant minister for youth, or accused of trying to borrow a state trooper from interviewing counselors at the camp. Another war not nor Wainwright was a suspect in the child abuse investigation, but they interrupted a police interview of a counselor. The minister's interrupted a police interview the council Wednesday in a room at the camp and after investigators moved the interview to a nearby picnic area, interfered again and subsequently tried to prevent a camper from directing police to another potential witness, according to charging documents. There's according to Baltimore Sun in 2002. Cooper. Diane Berry of the State Police, child and Sexual Assault unit, said quote. I've never encountered resistance like that at all. She pointed out. The counselors were informed they could leave at any time they still consented to be interviewed. So this is this is rough out, Lorna. Excellent, excellent stuff. This is who the Democrats have decided to put up as their nominee. This is what Republicans are gonna have to fight back against. Joe Biden administration is not going to turn these people away. Joe Biden's administration is going to welcome these people. Joe Biden is acting like he's a bulwark for moderation. Yeah, fat chance coming up. Let's just be frank about this. There is no limiting principle.

"Raphael warnock. Welcome to the podcast. Great to be here with jonathan. We're talking because you're senate race where how many people you were running against their georgia in your race. I don't know if i could even kill the there. Were twenty one people in my race and the names were listed alphabetically. My last name is war. Knock okay and so as was the case. When i was in elementary school when the teacher said it's time to go to lunch or recess. I was the kid next to the last kid in line and so it was in this in this race. But i finish. I that's significant. I didn't know that the names were listed in alphabetical order. And your last name begins with a w. the person got the second most votes her name starts with an l. You got thirty two point nine at least as of right now. Last i looked thirty. Two point nine percent of the vote was it a million six votes already. And she's the incumbent who spent millions of dollars in this race that's right and you got almost a million more votes than the person who came in third which is the congressman who is trying to knock out the incumbent. So let's start at the beginning. Why did you think that now is the time to run for office and run for. Us senate well. My whole life has been about service. I'm pastor serve ovens a baptist church. But i've been engaged. These fights from that pulpit for years. I've been fighting for healthcare access and affordability for years standing up in acts of civil disobedience demanding that we expand medicaid in the state. I've been fighting for voting rights. I've worked alongside my friend stacy abrams. We registered through the new georgia project. Which i chaired. One hundred thousand new voters in the state. I've been standing up for the dignity of workers and they are ready to share in some of the prosperity that they've created and i think my passion for these issues emerges from my life story of someone who grew up in public housing down in savannah georgia one of twelve children number eleven and the first college graduate my family so my success as a result of hard work but also pell grants low interest student loans. Good public policy. I know the difference that good public policy makes. And that's why i'm running for the us senate and so in your campaign running around the state. That hasn't voted for a democrat for president since ninety. Two and president-elect joe biden is on the cuss of perhaps winning the state of georgia. Talk about one why prison-like biden's message seemed to resonate in georgia and what impact that has had on your race and also talk about what you've heard on the campaign trail because i you went all around. The state didn't just stay in atlanta campaigning. Nola point i've been moving all across the state. And you know that that's important jobs and because there is this narrative in georgia politics there's atlanta and then the rest of the state and so i'm from savannah southeast part of the state but i've been on a bus moving across the state up dropped by small towns like america's george cuthbert georgia and down randolph county and. The people are surprised. When i show up and i'm surprised that they're surprised but they say to me that they have not seen a candidate show up in their town which is interesting to me because i'm running to represent the whole state rural and urban the north and the south and i'm getting to see first hand that people are having and what do people concerned about. They're concerned about health care. They're concerned about the fact that they wanna make sure that they don't lose the coverage that they have that coverage is affordable. We've had eight hospitals to close in this state largely because we refuse to expand. Medicaid is the unnecessary war that the republican party has waged against president obama who no longer in office and the people are the casualties in that war. Their hospitals are closing in these rural areas devastated rural health care and also taking away jobs and so i think the people voted the other night when they voted for joan by and when david purdue failed to get a majority of his voters even though he's the incumbent and i finished ahead of kelly leffler even though she's the incumbent that people are voting for unity over division and chaos there voting for healthcare. They're voting for a livable wage and the ability to retire with dignity. They're voting for the best in the human condition and the american spirit when
