"raphael warnock" Discussed on The Daily

"As republicans waste to restrict voting. They begin in georgia once a republican stronghold that has just elected its first black. Senator rafael warnock. Too many democrats. That is no coincidence today. My colleague a steady turned. It speaks to warn about reese voting rights and his faith that the old political order is fading away. It's wednesday march thirty. I said why did you want to interview raphael. What so. I grew up as a son of a black pastor. And you know Grew up in those churches where the mixture of theology and politics was very normal but at the same time has seen the ways in which when that moves into a political sphere it can be cast as radical and as an american. You know. I remember back when barack obama was running for president and he came under fire for attending church services with the reverend jeremiah wright. Give them the drug them. Big prisons back three tight law and then walk up to sing. God bless america. no no no not. God bless america. God damn america specifically for a sermon which he said the phrase god damn america. Hi this is barack obama and lead to a moment where let me say at the outset that i disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy for obama distanced himself from jeremiah wright. That's just how that kind of world has often been portrayed mainstream politics. And i was interested in how a figure like raphael warnock would navigate that well. Good evening his sermons. That i was familiar with our very clear eyed about america's history of racial injustice in america's post racial world. We're still dealing with poverty and we're still dealing with war about the need for kind of course correction for democracy. People like to tell vote to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps. That's why dr king used to say that it's strange We have marxism for the rich and rugged free enterprise for the pool. I was interested to see if pastor warnock would be that kind of familiar. Who speaks directly to america's social ills when he became a candidate or whether by running in a red state or traditionally backed democrats particularly non white democrats by he would feel the need to become a different person for the purposes of winning but also he's now stepping into a role as only the eleventh black person to ever be elected to the senate. How does he see his unique position in navigating that and how does he see his own. Identity is impacting the way that he navigates that too right. So that's it. That's all you wanted to talk about small stuff. All right. are we on high senator. This is from the new york times. How are you good you. i'm doing. well thank you. I said where did you start the conversation. Well we start by talking about our shared experience in the black church there. Is i think a tradition that we both know of black pastors being those type of truth tellers from the outside when you're getting ready to run and move into a more inside role. Did you feel like you needed to shift anything about yourself. no I think that voters can see phony a mile away and so. I thought that. I should lay before georgia my case who i am and let the voters decide and thankfully responded to our message and here. I am but campaigns are particular and a very particular beast. I wanna talk about yours in that race. If felt is if as an observer someone who was reporting on there was a difference between the kind of early candidate in tone of the race. And certainly how with intensified in changed when there was national attention during the runoff raphael. Warnock each pizza with a fork and knife rafeal not once stepped on a crack in the sidewalk. Rafia weren't even hates puppies. Get ready georgia. The negative ads coming. I think about that advertisement of you holding puppy. That's kind of become fairly famous now. Kelly left with doesn't want to talk about why she's for getting rid of health care in the middle of a pandemic so she's going to try and scare you with lies about me. I'm rafia warned. Knocking die approve this message. Because i'm staying focused on what washington could do for you. And by the way i love puppies can you tell me about that ad specifically well look. I think that i have been doing this work for so long and georgia. That georgia already knew what i'm about but you know in politics often. Your adversary tries to distort. I felt that in the middle of a pandemic the last thing people need it wasn't onslaught of negative ads and So we inserted a bit of humor in my campaign the same way. I do in my sermons. Well i'll tell you why ask about the ad. It was one that i think stuck out. I think had a lot to say about the way folks front. Tell you at some point. When i saw it kind of made me sad to think that you know that kind of person who is for conviction and kind of truth telling you mentioned on the pulpit kind of seemed as was showing who planted a tattoo be in a statewide race a to this kind of looking at black candidates with specific lens. Did it feel as if those two people wherever in conflict the past third and the statewide candidate in a tough. You know if you've spent time with my friends they will tell you that i laugh just as hard as i think. In fact i think if you listen to my sermons. The same kind of parts of me that you saw in the race i think is always shown up in the ministry. There was a day where i was actually assigned by editors to figure out if that was your puppy you authentic. The puppy was a volunteer. Said at some point in the conversation. When you're talking about the puppy ad you use the word 'sad to describe your reaction to that. What do you mean by that. I missed the ad me. He sad because as a black man who do you have to be to make yourself appeal to the most people. And i don't want project. My own feelings. On senator warner bright. He could feel and he says to me in that interview. He feels as if that was his except so. That's his answer. I can say that as black people we are tasked with the code switching to navigate this world the you know the kind of ways that people highlight different parts of themselves. And you know who yourself do that. As a means of kind of navigating white dominated spaces politics is a white dominated space and black canopies half to learn how to translate those languages and how to speak to different types of communities to be successful at that you know and so when i see that ad i see another way which that tradition continues. That tradition has sometimes pushed black candidates in black people out of the political arena. And that's what i'm reacting to not necessarily his own choice and decision which could be very authentic themselves in that in that same race now there was a point when the racist seemingly became all about. Your candidacy will give the radicals total control. Your opponents were not mentioning the other democrat by name the ads. We're focusing on you. Saving the senate is.

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

"Hours hours after after President President Joe Joe Biden Biden and and Vice Vice President President Kamila Kamila Harris Harris were were sworn sworn in in the the Senate Senate got got back back to work. Today, Control shifted from Republicans, two Democrats by the slimmest possible margin. First Vice President Harris swore in the new Democratic senators from Georgia who will give her party the numerical edge. And that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter. So help you God. Yeah. Congratulations to tell us more. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle aside there. Hi, Ari. Tell us more about what happened today. So the Senate finalized their transfer of power from a Republican led chambers has been the case since 2015 to 1 that is divided 50 50 and led by one Democrat as the tiebreaker. And that's Vice President Kamala Harris. Democrats 12 weeks ago. But finally today, these two new senators from Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff's who shifted control of the chamber were sworn in and this is ahead of some very heavy lifts ahead. The chambers. New Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in his floor in his former marks, said quote I need to catch my breath so much is happening. But he's already highlighted three big tasks ahead a Senate impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump confirming Biden's Cabinet nominees and taking up a $1.9 trillion biting proposal for new coronavirus coronavirus relief aid. Yeah, Those are three very big tasks. What are Republicans saying about the next steps? We saw Republican leaders extending all of branch today trying to bridge some of this dramatic divide the trump years brought with Democrats. For example, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged this transfer of power in his hopes to work with Biden. And this is the theme I heard from other Republicans today, they thought bite, instruct the right tone. In his inauguration speech, lifting these bipartisan hopes I talked to Alaska senators Lisa Murkowski, Let's take a listen. You can still disagree from a policy perspective and you can do so in ways that are still respectful and allow you to continue to work towards other goals. I also caught up with GOP Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who sounded a similar note. She said Biden struck those right themes of unity and a call for parties to stop viewing one another as adversaries, and she stands ready to advance their common goals. And West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin told Capitol Hill reporters today that a bipartisan group that includes workhouse game Collins would be meeting with Biden administration in the coming days. So again, this bipartisan theme was much of what I heard today from both sides. So how are they plan to tackle impeachment, massive legislation and confirming Biden's cabinet all at once? That will be a real test for whether members can talk into gum at the same time, as they like to say. Democrats are betting they can. One proposal that's being entertained is whether they can split their days between an impeachment trial and confirming these nominees. But first they need to reach a power sharing agreement with Republicans. Then they hope to tackle these big ticket items at warp speed in the coming days.

"Forgiven if you don't remember it now. But the week began with the revelation that trump had called georgia's secretary state and pressured him over an hour to just recalculate the presidential vote in his favor to find the votes. Just one more than the margin to flip the state and on tuesday we had the georgia senate runoff which resulted in the improbable. Victories by democrat. Jon ossoff n raphael warnock today. Republican produce actually conceded the closer those two races and congratulated also on his. The two wins in georgia. Mean that senator mitch. Mcconnell will lose his job as majority leader because the senate will be split fifty fifty an incoming president kamala harris will hold the tiebreaker. So that's a bummer. For mitch. now there's a pretty urging question given the possibility of a second impeachment trial and generally about the agenda for the biden administration confirming cabinet members as well of when warnock ossoff. We'll be seated. After all the point of impeaching. The president isn't just impeachment. Second time to get him out of office requires two thirds of the senate to vote to convict which is tall order. Dangle thinks they wouldn't even take it up but two democratic senators were certainly helped the cause georgia counties until january fifteenth. One week from today to certify the election results after that the sector state. Brad robbins burger has another week until the twenty second to certify statewide and then finally the two incoming democratic centers can be sworn it now robbins. Berger says he's aiming to have the certified by joe biden's inauguration on january twentieth. That's no short thing. No matter what happens. Democrats will not have the senate majority in the senate until after the inauguration because again the vice president holds a tiebreaker. For what it's worth. If mike pence somehow becomes president in the next days he gets to choose new. Vp that spot does not automatically go to nancy. Pelosi or anyone else now. House democrats are looking to vote on articles of impeachment next week. If they passed by majority they would then good senate remember. Trump's last senate impeachment. Trial lasted four weeks so it seems unlikely we would see a senate vote anyway before january twentieth. There is a twist here. Which is that trump could potentially still be. Impeached leaves office. There's some legal debate on that question. Impeachment conviction doesn't just remove a president could also bar him from holding office in the future. What duke reports. Democrats believe that possibility could senate republicans some of whom are eyeing a twenty twenty four bid themselves matter what happens. The reality is that as bad as the week has been for the country and it's been one of the worst i've seen. We lost another almost four thousand people to the coronavirus.

WNBA players celebrate Warnock's projected win over Loeffler

"Right. Before the insurrection at the capital there was two senate runoff elections that the country had their is on in one of them. The reverend raphael warnock defeated the incumbent. Appointed senator kelly leffler in georgia. Kelly leffler for about ten years has been a partial owner of the atlanta dream of the wnba. She's now the majority owner but she's been around the team for now ten or eleven years and you may have heard her own players and much of the wnba is diametrically opposed to everything that leffler stands force. It was a very interesting situation to see everything develop earlier this week. And then how it works in the team dynamic for more on that. Let's welcome and renee. Montgomery actually a guard for the atlanta dream. She joins us this morning. She's actually rejoining us this morning a second time. She's been on with this. Good morning to you so i guess the first thing i gotta ask you is being a member of the team and understanding everything. That's going on on the floor in off the floor. What's the reaction of you and your teammates to misled losing this election. So i'm just gonna speak for myself and the reaction is. It's not even just her losing. Its rafael worn off. One and i wanna make sure that the messaging stays clear because there's some things that happened on january six is trying to take away from the fact that a black man is going to send it a jewish man from georgia's going to send it and we won the presidential race so i would say for me. It's a sweep. it's a three no sleep. So the the the feeling is happy. Rene speaking of january six. What are your thoughts on everything that occurred that day. Yeah you know. It's kinda like we all felt something was gonna happen. I was worried after november. Third ominously like when when the number started tied and we could see that joe biden. Really my win this thing you know. We all started to get a little nervous even here in georgia the aquarium shutdown coach color. They all boarded up their their buildings because we were all expecting some type of reaction and not a good one so then to see what happened on january six and see the lack of policing that was there it was it was disappointing and most call a spade a spade. It was terrorism. Domestic terrorism is the term that we should use for that renee montgomery innately. Sorry thanksgiving i was going to say what is say about the platform that the wnba has like you guys like even a month before. Colin kaepernick took a knee in two thousand sixteen. The wnba pre-game conference about police brutality. You guys were black. Lives matters t shirts before it was even a thing. Guys always been the leader at the forefront say about the platform that you guys have in the work that you guys have been doing you know. I hope people start to licking because a lot of brands. A lot of sponsors. They don't see the value in in women would say 'cause you know. I think i saw a tweet. From china robinson that said of sponsorship for women athletics how chow especially now knowing the impact that a women's league not just so a player but a whole week and have i don't understand why there's no interest but i do hope that just seeing how things transpired and how everyone to see what's going on. I hope that there is some value added to women now. Renee montgomery of the atlanta dream is joining us. This morning on keyshawn jay williams zubin were presented by progressive. Insurance and rene is with us on the goodyear hotline to robinson by the way. Espn women's college basketball analyst shaina. Yes shoutout. I want to ask you this because people may not want to go back to leffler because i think this is just so fascinating with how clear she's been in how clear you guys have been She used to be for people. That aren't aware that maybe don't follow the dream on everyday basis. She used to be a constant present. at games. a practice you'd be a team functions. He was always be sitting in the front row. She was very active owner. Obviously things have changed when she went to the senate got other responsibilities. I just wonder what your relationship is with her. The team's relationship with her you know even before the senator race i would just fear before the games. We've been to her house. Where team function. But i mean any of the players know you're not usually best friends with owner in general you know you typically would talk more to your g Even when it comes to contracts and stuff so we did see her there and we would wait and she was you know. I know that she released herself. From you. know day to day duties as she became a senator but she was president and the wnba. I know probably the letter was her trying to distance herself. Thing is how she's republican and the wnba. Is you know highly majority. Lgbt in black and brown community. So i can understand why she's trying to distance ourselves but it wasn't the case beforehand. Rene we're kind of personal discussions if any at all have you had. We'll often about social justice nine. I'm you know this was a typical owner-player relationship. So you know. I never talked to my minnesota on her about social justice. And i know that this time is is different but by the time that all of these things try Started to unfold. You know it was already. She was already too far. gone by. then how do you feel now that everything is transpired and she still co owner of the team for me and this is gonna be unpopular to say but for me. I'm sure she's not the only owner. That probably feels the way she feels. And so i hope that the wnba and hope that you know even her you know i. I've already posed the question. I don't know why he would want to own a wnba team. If you have to write a letter to the commissioner opposing. Everything that that team is standing for you know. Our team is the atlanta dream. And i don't know if people know that's from martin. Luther king's dream speech. That's how we got our name so if you oppose everything that we fundamentally stand for. I don't see how you can build a relationship there. I don't know why you'd want to be there

"Welcome back on the heels. Senator elect projected win his fellow democratic challenger in georgia. John also declared victory this morning even though the race hasn't been called yet which having a little bit dangerous but who am i. But if he does flip the state what do you think. The implications of these weapons are and the people who made them happy. Made them happened jordan. What do you think the. The big picture of this is with this with this win. Well i just think that you know it. It's like now we own. The democrats have three branches of government which they have the executives the legislature and the they have two houses and the executive branch and they don't have the judicial that was. I don't know about that yet. That they do have quite a bit of power and they have a lot of power. And i think that it's a great thing you know. I just want to quote lindsey graham for a second because in two thousand sixteen he said if we nominate trump we will be destroyed and we will deserve it. You know i. It's so great to read that because that's exactly what happened. And he should known better. But i think that you know the two words that i'm enjoying a saying moscow mitch minority leader because now the adults are back in the room. The adults can now maybe get some stimulus money to these people in this country who was suffering from covid they have no reason to be out of work except for this disease and the government should be helping them and then not because of mitch. And maybe there'll be some action on climate change now instead of just having this a nihilist kind of mentality that we can just destroy the planet with no regard for it and maybe some good police forum and one thing. Maybe something will be done yet. Those poor children at the border. That's the biggest disgrace of this of this past four years. And what about you sunny. What's your what's your feeling about. The possibility of both of those seats being taken by democrats. Is it in the big picture. A good thing. I think so. I think it means that our government will be working again. The way it is has an intended to work. I mean you know when you look at the policies that the biden administration wants to enact. There won't be the mitch mcconnell roadblock and so as joy mentioned we're talking about healthcare we're talking about climate change. We're talking about police reform. We're talking about children at the border. We're talking about minimum wage a living wage most importantly in my mind. We're talking about the vaccination rollout we're talking about the defense act and making sure that our health workers have p. We're making sure that that people are gonna get vaccinated right now. We have twenty million vaccines. Some some people are some of the vaccines i think at. This point are getting are expiring. So so at least we'll we'll have immediate relief in that sense and i think we really have to think about what happened in georgia. I mean we're talking about historic voter. Turn out not only black voter out. But a coalition of asian americans which talking about latinos from me hint there. We're talking about the work of stacey. Abrams and and latasha brown. I mean this was historic. And i do think that that yes will pull this out. This is incredible okay. Well we're going to.

"Why did you think that now is the time to run an office and run for. Us senate well. My whole life has been about service. I'm pastor served beneath baptist church. But i've been engaged in these fights from that copay 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 at work alongside. My friend stacy abrams. We registered through the new georgia project. Which i chaired. Four hundred thousand new voters in the state. I've been standing up for the dignity of workers and they're 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 someone who grew up in public housing down in savannah. Georgia wanted twelve number eleven and the first college graduate my family so my success as a result of hard work but also grants low interest student loans. Good public policy. I know the difference that good public policy meetings and as 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 cusp of perhaps winning the state of georgia talk about one. Why president-elect 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 can imagine you went all around the state. You didn't just stay in atlanta campaigning. No that's a good point. I've been moving all across the state. And you know that. That's important jonathan 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 dropped by small towns like america's george <hes>. Cuthbert georgia 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 rule and the north and the south. And i'm getting to see first. Hand the concerns that people are having and what do people concerned about. They're concerned about healthcare. They're concerned about the fact that they want to make sure they don't lose the coverage that they have that coverage is affordable had eight hospitals 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 devastating rule healthcare 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 you're out on the campaign trail though in those parts of georgia that perhaps aren't hospitable to a democratic candidate. What kind of response are you getting. What are you hearing from those voters. I think people appreciate the fact that you're willing to talk to them. And that's my orientation is not a strategic political decision. Quite frankly part of what running gives me an opportunity to do. Is to do what i would normally want to do. Anyway and spend time with talking to people who don't see the world exactly the way. I do one of the things that disappointed me. About the fact that we're living through this deadly and tragic pandemic is that i had hoped earlier in the campaign to get across the state and drop into some of these wednesday night bible studies. I'm a passenger after all and they're people who don't share my politics but we read from the same book and there must be some values there must be some common ground. There must be a place where we can talk about the things that we actually agree on.

"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? Around this story more ahead at 6 15 Now time for W m A l traffic.

"So in other words, I'm watching this story. And I a poor everything that Raphael Warnock represents. I hate most of what he says. I don't like his politics and I'm almost positive. I would detest him as a human being if I actually met him. But all that being said, Let's be fair. I don't know if this if this ex wife is telling the truth Now a couple of things, and I do understand that, according to the Democrats in the media, the woman is always to be believed, right in these kinds of situations. That's what we all learned, and that's all what we were told during the Judge Cavanaugh. Senate confirmation hearings is the victim is always to be believed, and that's what people like Kamila Harris and Hillary Clinton and the media have been scolding us for, You know, better part of a year or two. Apparently that it doesn't necessarily apply you for speaking about Ralph. I owe more knock or Joe Biden. Because she always had his own situations with terror read, So I'm just going to tell you. I don't know if this woman is telling the truth. I don't know if this woman is lying, But let me tell you what I do know. What I do know is that people lie. Men lie and women lie and oftentimes when they're lying, they're lying about their acts. It's just unfortunately what we do, but see, this is This is less a example of Raphael Warnock and his behavior because we don't know what's true and what's not. But it is an example of the media's hypocrisy. Because a quick search around the world Wide Web you will find this story nowhere. There's literally nowhere. But if this were a Republican And you had an ex claiming all kinds of nasty things. Well, you know that it would be literally everywhere. So what does that tell you? It tells you once again that there is a double standard between Republicans and Democrats. The media's not covering this and the media is not covering this because they clearly obviously what Raphael Warnock to win his race there in Georgia, four United States Senate. By the way, the reverence Republican opponent, Senator Kelly lawful, er use the situation to issue her statement. Rafael War knocks ex wife Joliet's allegations Are deeply troubling. Domestic abuse is a very serious issue, and this new body cam footage is clearly difficult to watch. I didn't find it difficult to watch. Georgians deserve answers to these very serious allegations. And his ex wife's voice deserves to be heard. And she is right. Kelly La Flor is correct. Next wife's voice does deserve to be heard. And it's up to you is to whether or not you believe what's been going on or not. She's been silent. With all of this since this whole thing happened back in March, haven't heard much from the ex wife regarding this incident or any other incidents than I know of. So That's going to be the question. Will anybody really look into these allegations? It does seem to me that these are the allegations of a necks and as a lot of people know Allegations made by exes can often be wrong, defamatory, accusatory and it can look really bad when in reality, you just have a very bitter action, and lots of people can identify this and relate to this. And so I cannot believe I'm saying this, but I feel like I need to stand up for Raphael Warnock and just say that I feel like maybe Tucker and the folks that Fox News are treating him just a wee bit unfairly. It's 9 42 on newstalk, a 20 wb ape. This'll is Marchal a van and then they talk about you're gonna disenfranchise the voter. What you're going to disenfranchise people. Lot's wife. You gonna disenfranchise the dead? You get a disenfranchised people vote from out of state and I could go on and on and on mark loving.

Now think there's another one where he goes way deeper into israel and anti make some very very antisemitic. Comments raphael warnock is as we've mentioned in the previous hour not fit to be a us senator. I think that's a nice calm way toward it. The fight ahead of us is on many fronts. And i feel as if we are losing sight of the also reopened the country if we do not reopen the country in the next thirty days quickly which by the way. The country should fully reopen right now immediately.

"You're an activist and you cannot be a christian and also be pro-abortion you see those of us that are christians and we believe in the air and sea of scripture. It is so clear as i. These verses off with the bible commands us to do in regards to defending the lives of the unborn defending those that cannot speak for themselves. I knew you before you're in the womb and now we know thanks to modern science but the teachings of the bible were thousands of years ahead of science not that the science thing exist but says clearly in the book of luke the baby in my womb. It didn't say the fetus in my womb. And we do know as soon as the egg and the sperm meets a unique form of dna is created. That's called life now. Some people say well that life can't sustain itself without another source or another host therefore it's not a life under that argument you would discard the millions of people that are developmentally disabled and in nursing homes across the country. And i guess that makes sense. Because that's what andrew cuomo did. There are plenty of people that are considered living in society that cannot sustain life for themselves without the assistance of others bad argument but any person who uses the gospel to justify sixty million abortions is not a christian. And that includes you raphael warnock the consequences of the georgia georgia. Runoff could not be more clear. Now that is we must keep the pressure on the voter integrity. Fight in georgia. That is why we must make sure that our votes are actually counted in georgia correctly. And that also means that every person listening to this program in georgia or near georgia. Does everything humanly possible to help kelly law flir and david purdue when they're senate races were jon ossoff and raphael. Warnock are doing everything they possibly can to be a part in democrat unified government that does not mean by any stretch of the imagination that the voter integrity fights that are occurring. All across the country must be abandoned. Must surrender in fact. They're actually more important than ever before. But i want you to imagine a scenario that those voter integrity fights trying to overturn. The election.

"It is christmas season. So it's time let's get back into the scriptures raphael warnock. Who calls himself a pastor calls himself. A christian is a pro abortion advocate. He's perfectly okay with the one million innocent children that are slaughtered in the womb. Every single year. He says that he doesn't wanna tell people what to do with their body said. It's a woman's right to choose. There's so much wrong with this argument. The first of which is what about the women babies that were terminated. What about their right to live or their right to choose which is just on the law of averages half of all abortions since roe versus wade sixty five million abortions women young ladies. Young girls raphael warnock brags that he is a pro abortion pastor. So i don't know what he's a pastor of i don't know what religion or theological belief he represents but it certainly isn't christianity you go to psalm one thirty nine thirteen through fourteen for you. Created my in most being unit. Meet together in my mother's womb. I praise you. Because i am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. I know that for well unless you want to be discarded than rafael warnock says terminates jeremiah. One through five. Now the word of the lord came to me saying before i formed in the womb. I knew you and before you were born. I concentrated you unless you're a war. Knock terminated how about luke one forty one through forty five. The christmas story is best.

"The meat. Thanks so much. Georgia senate candidate rafael. Warnock says quote pro abortion pastor. So i tweeted out recently. You cannot be pro abortion and also a christian in my defense that is not even the spiciest take i had in that twenty four hour window for whatever reason i guess it got a lot of engagement on. Twitter and raphael warnock defended his support for abortion on demand tuesday by declaring himself to be a pro choice pastor. Not sure how that one's gonna work in georgia. I think that dog's not going to hunt and georgia conveniently. I'm reading reading from life. News dot com conveniently. The democrat candidate did not mentioned that his choice is to kill an unborn child. Nor did he. A pastor mentioned the bible recognize unborn babies as valued human beings. We're not said. I'm a pro choice pastor and i'm trying to understand how he could possibly justify this biblically and theologically and of course he can't. We probably haven't spent enough time and raphael warnock who it might be one of the most radical candidates ever running for the united states. Senate this is a communist. This guy is not a pastor. And i would venture to say that i think if he calls himself a christian. I got a lot of problems with that. Because if he's a christian then. I have to call myself something different. Let's go through the best cut sheet of raphael warnock. Let's go to cut sixty two of raphael. Warnock praising fidel castro. This sounds like a guy that should represent georgia. Values cut sixty two. This guy reminds me of jeremiah. Wright cut sixty two. We pray for the people of cuba in this moment. We remember fidel castro. Whose legacy is complex. Don't let anybody tell you a simple story life. Usually it's very simple. His legacy is complex cadillac. America's legacy is complex fidel. Castro's legacy is complex. You know. Joseph stalin's legacy was complex. He built some great trains. He had some beautiful gulags. Very complex in the words of raphael warnock. Yeah castro. He did some good things. He locked away. A lot of rabble-rousers.

The nineteen talents. We got people in georgia were at risk for losing their healthcare. Kelly left my has our way and just keeping on it to represent the working families of georgia and that i will continue to do what they did last night on that debate stage you know outside of you. I was listening to your opponent and She kept saying. I was called to public service. I was called to public service. But i i mean i am. I wrong in this. Wasn't she appointed well. She wasn't pointed and the people of georgia disappointed. He knows alu- and and that's why she is spending tens of billions of dollars. Try to step down. I mean think about this woman. is the wealthiest member of college. She's been mazzi since january and now that it's time to phases of people to do. This is why. I want to stay in the feet. She could fradin makes the case for herself but it interesting. She hasn't even try to make a case for herself. Well why she should say what is the body of work that she is offering to provide for the people of georgia and so. I think it's sad that she apparently doesn't have too many good things to say about herself so she's trying to attack me. But that's not a reason to run to the. Us senate my momma top is not what they call you is what you answer by And I i'm not going to be distracted by by the politic distortion distraction and division of people who had no business engage individuals. They don't know how to lead us and so they're trying to divide them I'm georgia through and through my dad's from scriven county. My mama's from waycross wake up jaw.

Senator from georgia This is a great country. We got work to do But it's always been vocation to push us water. Perfect million and i probably could people enjoyed georgia. They give me a chance to be making pro. You know let let limp. Okay first of all. Let me tell you something. We've been pushing on this show since election that the relection that early voting begins december fourteenth through december. Thirty first election day is january fifth that we got our early voting in that we. We're going to early vote that we got our ballots in and we're going to show up. We've we've been pushing that we're even pushing to all of our listeners. Who didn't vote to go. We want you to be a part of something. That's going to change the direction of this country. So we're we're we're on that for you sir rhetoric on right there. We'll be right. Back with more steve harvey morning show. You're listening to morning show. We're back we're talking with reverend raphael. Warnock what i wanna do right now is give you a moment to clear up and put some things into context solve all these negative ads on tv too that these people have putting this money behind strategically place them. After every time you wanna add date. They negative ads. You know in in context because you said it on stage of that. You'd never met castro. You've never been in a room. It none of that but this this thing is when you when you walk on when you in context when you were saying opened up the jails and let our children go. What in what context was that actually being see who last year. My church had a conference That's the part of my ongoing. Where i've been working on criminal justice reform for years and never in my work by the way have i ever said he found the beliefs. I've never said it and Don't you know what i did. They would've you know they've been looking over and over again. But that's not how i talk about the problem and that's not anything i want to do But i do recognize at the united states of america. The land of the food warehouses twenty five percent of the world's printers think about four percent of the world. Our country is we're house. Twenty five percent of the world's business much of that has been driven over the last forty years by of so-called war on drugs that too often has been a war on black and brown community. We've got a greater percentage of our people in jail. Greater percentage of black people in jail than did south africa at the height of apartheid. We got more people in prison than any nations on the planet and much of it is driven by this which more on clubs and we saw what happened and the eighties and the nineties. It will crack epidemic now. We're witnessing the opioid epidemic versed at the epidemic was largely black and brown and urban communities face of opioid epidemic Is largely light as we see it and rural areas suburban areas. And over the course of time. We've come to see this. Drug problem is a public health. Emergency and that's right. And so. I think we need to see this as an opportunity because what we had in the eighties was the war on drugs. When you have a war you gotta enemy combatants and prisons. You have a public health. Emergency had twenty about. And you try work on it in that way and so No i i think that We've got to. We imagined the relationship between the system Andy community hold on a second. We'll be right back. Sit tight force will be right. Back with more. Steve harvey morning show right after this. You're listening to every morning show. We're back and we'll continue now in depth conversation with our senate candidate here who we've got to get to the polls and vote for we're voting to people Guess was reverend raphael. Warnock path of the kings one of the things. That ironic about this moment is that all of the forms of discrimination against which dot the king fox voting rights. Discrimination housing discrimination. Those forms of discrimination are re inscribed moment. Our children carry than name belen once they enter into the system. In fact you don't have to be convicted of anything. Mike church has been expunging criminal arrest records now the years he was the first to do it at kelly others have now followed our example by the way i had an expunged event. Just the better while. She's trying to act like. I don't support the military. There are people walking around in our county in our state in the country. He's never been convicted of anything. They have an arrest record in a lives are on hold. They can't get a job. Can't find housing because they have an arrest. What and so. We need to reset And reimagined these relationships. We need restored of justice and we need fewer prisons and more preschool. You know something I see now. That brings a lot of clarity tour. Because what average people don't know us eighty percent of our people in prison in there for non violent drug related offenses and so what what they don't even understand by you making a statement like that and they tried to put it into context you open up for. Just let everybody out on the street like that data. What that is you know. You talk reasonably looking similar. Didn't they just pass a prison reform. Bill de just admit that that was an over incarceration of people who are serving absorbed sentences that that shouldn't have to. But and i just i just watch the way they do it Sir i just wanted to give you a moment to clear that up so we could the politics of you know you you put your you know the politics here and then they're running these ads Where they running this whole thing. I think about this. On the pastor. That either i got a phd. Spend my life in public service. And now they're lifting at this team of dangerous right you know what exactly you know with the over and over and over and if anybody could watch that debate and turn around and some wheel and vote for this stoic rehearsed robotic performance reverend to see you actually talk about the issues and what you were gonna do and the things that matter to people in the state of georgia we're well-positioned to make history in the state but more importantly to make a difference to make sure that people have access to affordable health care that the people we call essential workers we actually give them an essential wage that we helped the people to get their voice and their votes heard in their democracy. i wanna encourage listeners to go to vote worn out dot com Even if you don't live in the state you can volunteer digitally you can support our effort and certainly can give to our campaign and tell everybody you know. They're starts december four games. We show up when we show we went. So listen to steve harvey nation. Here's the deal. I want everybody to go to vote. Wore knock dot com vote wore knock dot com.

"Credit challenger Raphael Warnock on Sunday. We're not hitting back it Leffler for accusing him of wanting to defund the police. I do not want to defund the police and Kelly Leffler knows it. But she keeps saying this because she wants to distract from our own record. The truth of the matter is where it left up to her. Georgians would not have received a $600 of expanded unemployment insurance, and they haven't seen any relief and months, meanwhile left we're accusing Democrats of trying to push forward a dangerous agenda for the country. They want to defund the police raise your taxes. Implement the green new deal that would crush jobs and opportunity and what I'm working on is making sure that we can get the economy going again that we can drive forward after this pandemic. Meanwhile, President Trump tweeting Sunday that Giuliani tested positive for the coronavirus 76 year old former New York mayor has traveled extensively to battleground states challenging election results on behalf of the president.

"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
