John Zmirak Loves Being Wrong About the Virginia Election Outcome
"I get to talk to John's merak. I see that as a good thing. John smirk, welcome. Hey, all right, it's really exciting to talk to you today, you know. Today, in the wake of the Virginia election, I feel the way I did in 19 80, I think it was 80 or 81 no, I'm sorry. No, no, no, it was 80 88, 88, when Poland had its first elections where non communist candidates were allowed to run and some of them actually won. The communists still had a majority, but it became clear they would allow some kind of free and fair election under their totalitarian system. After the events of the 2020 election, and after the vicious crackdown on the peaceful protesters of January 6th, I was genuinely worried we would never be allowed a real free, fair election again. I was convinced the Democrats were going to steal it last night. If they had to bring in hefty bags with Stacey Abrams space on it full of ballots filled in with crayon. I was convinced they were going to steal it. So I love to be wrong about these things.

Jack Ciattarelli Is in a Surprisingly Tight Race With Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy in New Jersey
"You, I love New Jersey. I know a lot of people are always kind of trashing on New Jersey. They have some of the toughest, proudest people in the country. They really do. They love their state and they're very defensive of it. New Jersey was supposed to be a cakewalk. Ten points, Murphy is gonna waltz to victory. And by the way, if Murphy ever thought him going on television and campaigning was a good idea, he should have pulled a Biden. As soon as I saw him on TV, I got animated to try to make sure he's never in leadership again. He's kind of got that. What did you say? Roger Keaton look, like Michael Keaton look, Michael Keaton used car salesman better call so hello, everybody, and I am now the governor of New Jersey. Thank you so much. Am I playing my role? Fake smile, thank you. Good to see you. And as a challenger, you have Jackson orelli, who just ran a grassroots campaign in the most no help whatsoever from the outside. Zero help whatsoever. And breaking right now as we are doing this show Republican Jack chitrali has just taken a 700 vote lead in the garden state. None of this was supposed to happen. Phil Murphy is calling up Tony Soprano. He's calling up Don Corona. He's calling up everyone he possibly can. And look, it's New Jersey. So if you want to talk about shenanigans corner cut and they perfected that entire thing. I don't say that as an insult to New Jersey. I'm just saying, buckle up. That's where that's where a lot of this stuff, unfortunately is centered. Now there's still a lot of votes left in Essex county. I'm sure Stacey Abrams is on her way up. But again, they probably, most of these ballots were probably on a ship off of the coast of Long Beach, California, and were never able to make it.
The Woke Crowd Must Be Fuming Over Atlanta Hosting the World Series
"Of course, the big World Series, I really followed much of the World Series other than I'm pretty excited about the Atlanta Braves. Considering what Major League Baseball stupidly did to the city of Atlanta and all the business owners, I saw somebody this morning on TV say that what these businesses lost in revenue by having the All-Star Game moved out of Atlanta over George's common sense election reform laws, they've more than made up for with the World Series. That I think was governor Brian Kemp on Fox and Friends this morning said that. So I mean, Stacey Abrams and the woke crowd has to be really mad at the World Series winding up in Atlanta. After the crap, they pulled on Atlanta with the
Terry McAuliffe Is Campaigning in Virginia by 'Othering' Constituents
"We were in Charlottesville yesterday near the end of the program I'll tell you why But while we were there mining our own business Stacey Abrams Was campaigning for Terry mcauliffe Dave Matthews that clown whose from that area he was there I guess so they could actually attract people And as we were driving through there we saw your typical lily white left wing cooks walking as quickly as they could to wherever this site was So as you know Charlottesville is a university town University of Virginia So it becomes quite clear to me that the base for Tim McCollum is to turn out as many blacks as possible because they're breaking internal revenue code tax laws the Democrat party is and apparently the pastors too In something I've never seen to this extent that's certainly clear And the elitist wealthy white professors other academics university students and so forth The suburbs the middle class whatever the race not so much He's expecting that as McCullough that the suburban women will vote Democrat Because he supports abortion on demand and paid for by everybody That's how they view women So what they do is they sit down around a table and they say okay This is how we approach blacks This is how we approach Hispanics although they haven't really done much outreach to a Hispanics based on the advertising This is how we approach the white liberals And this is how we approach the white millennials
Stacey Lennox: Democrats Are Already Crafting Their Excuse to Losing in the Midterms
"Anyway how do you know that Democrats think they will lose the House majority in the midterm she writes Because they are already crafting the excuse And they have Stacey Abrams who cause lies about her race in Georgia but that's okay She's allowed to deny an election What do you think about that Liz I bet Liz Cheney is no problem at all But about Benny Benny Johnson the chairman of the committee is he concerned about that No not in the least it's Benny Everyone knows Benny Once again Abrams was confident she could be the governor of Georgia and would have been if not for voter suppression of course Then the Senate majority leader such as he is schmuck E Chuck E. Schumer brought S 27 47 also known as the freedom to vote act up for a cloture vote Republicans filibustered the bill unanimously voting against it Because they're obviously all white supremacist who support Jim Crow I want you to listen to this The bill is senator Joe Manchin so called compromise bill to replace the for the people act When you hear it as a compromise bill you may assume Republicans were on board according to Jason sneed executive director the honest elections project mansions only compromises were between the left and the radical left Just like HR one this bill overrides state voter ID requirements Bans election integrity measures for absentee voting makes it harder for states to maintain updated accurate voter registration roles This is the mansion you see the moderate compromise I don't trust this guy mansion I don't trust this guy
How Virginia Became Ground Zero in the American Culture War
"Virginia, which is now being called a blue state, how long is it going to be blue? Or is it going to stay that way? Again, the counties around Washington, D.C. are reliably blue for a variety of different reasons. The first reason of course is its proximity to the power center to the kingdom of Washington, D.C.. The second is the amount of universities that are in Northern Virginia, which is extraordinary. If you look at the amount of universities in D.C. and Virginia, the third of which is, of course, the fact that a lot of first generation low wage worker immigrants move to Northern Virginia to be able to make the life of luxury possible for so many people that live in Northern Virginia. And many, many of the refugee resettlement programs and the immigration, the mass immigration programs come to Northern Virginia, which has resulted in a totally different political type atmosphere to win an election in Virginia. And so Virginia Democrats have been able to win, reliably by running up the score Northern Virginia, being able to win in Richmond and win on the Virginia coast. The rest of Virginia is very conservative, by the way. Lynchburg is very conservative, Blacksburg isn't because of Virginia tech, but Virginia, Virginia used to be a very conservative state. Charlottesville is obviously not very conservative because the University of Virginia, Blacksburg is Virginia tech, Charlottesville is University of Virginia Lynchburg's Liberty University which is actually a pretty conservative area. Richmond is a very, very Democrat area, and so Virginia seemed dead on arrival for years. There have been great candidates before, running for governor as Republicans, and they always get disappointed. And right, of course, the current governor of Virginia's give and a Ralph northam of Virginia and he won against a pretty good candidate who was the Republican canon in 2017. I can't remember Virginia's goofy. Virginia has elections in off years for their statewide elected officials. So 2017, 2021, 2013, they do every four years and in coming up in a couple weeks, is the Virginia governor's race. And Democrat operatives all across the country, they are going a full court press they are trying to California recall the Virginia race. They're going all in. They're raising money they're bringing in surrogates, so Terry mcauliffe, who is the corrupt Clinton surrogate and wants to be governor of Virginia, I think, again, he was governor once, right? Years ago. He says, look, yesterday I had Jill Biden here. I've had Stacey Abrams. Now, let me just say this. What constituency gets excited about having Stacey Abrams I've got Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance bottoms. Oh, I see the type. He's building a constituency on how to fraudulently steal elections. That's who he's bringing in. President Obama and, of course, Joe
Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, and Terry McAuliffe Violated Federal Tax Law
"One I want to make a report for the Internal Revenue Service That is part of the department of treasury I want to make a report to the treasury Excuse me the tax division and the Department of Justice The criminal division and the attorney general publicly that Kamala Harris and Stacey Abrams have violated a federal tax law as has Terry mcauliffe Preachers whatever faith they can speak to issues even walk up to the line when it comes to politics but they can not be overt They can not be part of a campaign plan With videos with messaging turn out the vote It's illegal Because these institutions are tax exempt in their tax exempt because among other things they're neither profit making nor political And yet Kamala Harris has produced a video for the term McCullough campaign And they're working very hard to get out the vote in black churches and black communities And Virginia churches are airing Kamala Harris's endorsement of Terry mcauliffe and her urging parishioners to vote after attending church I don't recall such a blatant and aggressive violation of federal tax law But on the other hand what do they have the fear given the Department of Justice
Terry McAuliffe Struggles to Shore up Democrat Base
"We've got a couple of minutes here to talk about what's going on in the gubernatorial race in Virginia, where Glen youngkin is going up against former governor Terry mcauliffe and, you know, this is an interesting race. It's remained close. I intending to think I'm a little optimistic about this, but of course, Virginia is a fairly blue state these days. Cam you're a virginian. What's going on there? It does young can have a chance here. Yes, I think you can absolutely have this chance. I think the Democrats are very, very concerned. As you say, Virginia has been trending blue, but this is about as optimal a scenario for Republicans as you can find. Democrats have nominated. I think a pretty unpopular guy and certainly a very uninspiring candidate who is not being helped by Joe Biden is dragging him down. Like all of even said that by design popular in Virginia and yet Biden is going to be coming to campaign with Terry mccoll between now and election day. But, you know, Miguel has also bringing in Barack Obama. He's bringing in Stacey Abrams to campaign for him Ed, which tells me that was less than three weeks now before election day. McCollum is still worried about shoring up his base, he's not even hoping right now to try to attract those moderate or independent voters. He's still trying to get black Democrats in Virginia to show up and vote for him because there's a third party candidate on the ballot for instance blanding. Who is running as deliberation party candidates is the first black female to be on the ballot for governor in Virginia. She is very strongly connected to the social justice movement. She's running to the call of left. And I think the mcauliffe is absolutely terrified that she's been able to peel away three four maybe even 5% of the vote both that would have gone to him. And that may be enough, along with what I think has been a pretty good campaign run by when young that might be enough to put junk in an office.
Democrats and Zuckerberg Had a Plan for Georgia, Republicans Didn't
"25 of the 26 cities and counties that receive the $1 million from Zuckerberg center for technology and civic life were one by Biden in 2020. The ten largest center for technology civic life grants in Georgia are the following Fulton Cobb gwinnett da cab. Clayton Douglas Cherokee won by Trump, Henry N muskeg. By mispronouncing of them, I'm sorry. I don't live in Georgia. The 9 out of ten of the biggest counties received massive money from Zuckerberg in fact Fulton county and Cobb county and gwinnett county received a combined $15 million. From the Zuckerberg center for technology and civic life for the actual administration of election. I know a lot of you are saying how on earth is this possibly legal, while the attorney general of Georgia didn't think to do anything about this? The Secretary of State Brad raffensperger was perfectly fine with this. Governor Brian Kemp signed a consent degree of Stacey Abrams that allowed the downfall of Georgia to occur. The federalists continues by saying the center for technology and civic life demanded the promotion of universal mail in voting through suspending election laws, extending deadlines that favored mail in over in person voting. I just want to reemphasize this. You have a private company or corporation or nonprofit funded with $420 million that comes in and demands the suspension of the law. Where the state legislatures this was in my opinion, one of the sneakiest, Treacher at most treacherous and deceitful actions but honestly, the state legislatures in Georgia, they did not meet in the summer of 2020 best of my knowledge about election integrity at all. The summer leading up to the election they should had a special session in July, they should have said hold on a second, we need to have a pregame meeting here. We gotta have a huddle. And this goes to show how weak incompetent and spineless the Republican Party is.
Is the Biden Regime Illegitimate?
"We are one on one with Stanford University's professor Victor Davis Hansen. Given that you have said all the synonyms, the deep state, the permanent bureaucracy, justified, not hyperbole, we have the empirical evidence. If we add to that, what we witnessed last year, 80 million unbidden mail out ballots sent out. Democrat governors across the nation saying we don't need to verify signatures. We can stretch the dates suitcases of ballots being pulled from under tables on CCTV. And Hunter Biden, the Hunter Biden story being literally censored at the source by Silicon Valley, the oldest newspaper in America, Alexander Hamilton's New York Post, not being allowed to re post the story of the contents of the hunt of mine laptop. Is it again? I'm using you as my sounding board. Is that hyperbole? It is an exaggeration to say that this quote unquote regime, this White House is illegitimate professor. Or I'm not going to adjudicate because that's what Hillary Clinton did and discouraged. Remember, she said that he was that he was not fairly elected. Stacey Abrams did that. All I will say is that when you transition in a single election cycle to the highest you've ever had mail in ballots in 2016 of 40% roughly. And you go to 63%, a 102 mail in or early ballots. And the error rate goes from a typical per state average of three to 4% rejection rate. And it goes down to .2 to .4, depending on the state. And then you're told that when you more than double the amount of work, the tabulate those ballots. And you need double the amount of workers. Yet you're going to find less air than you usually would when you have half the bowel, I just don't believe that's
"stacey abrams" Discussed on Women Amplified
"To hack the system and change the outcome. Yes they may. Not the thing that i think so many people just so admire about you mean clearly. You are wildly ambitious. But you've never lost sight of your surroundings and the people that you have been trying to lift up as well and that has been so appreciated that we should have aggressive and wild ambitions that are only anchored by fans not by doubts. And it's women. I think many of us have been taught temper our ambitions. So why do you recommend. Women have aggressive and wild ambitions into the women listening today. What would you say to encourage them to express or make those wild ambitions materialize over. My shoulder is poster for a documentary that i produced all in the fight for democracy and mentioned it for two reasons number one fighting for democracy being willing to tackle systems that have been in place literally since the inception of our nation is wild and in some ways. Absurd that in georgia. A young black woman is going to tackle this system and try to make it work better but that was my wild and ambitious dream but was also grounded in the plan knowing that litigation was a part of it knowing that we need to fix it legislation knowing that we need to build advocacy using my skills grown over years of building organizations hiring people who were smart thoughtful and capable of greatness being willing to raise money in order to fund those dreams but beginning with this very ambitious belief that i was going to stop voter suppression in jordan. We actually by august of nineteen decided. We're going to twenty states so that's one piece of it but this poster also represents one of the secret dreams i have. I am a geek. But i also am well known for my love of media. I love television film books. Music immersed myself in the arts. And i had ambitious idea that i could produce the documentary to tell the story of voter suppression because people need to understand. This isn't a singularity my campaign. What we faced was certainly deeply problematic but it was repeated in places across this country in smaller fashion. And maybe not with a saying click lights. But what. I wanted people to see and understand. Was that this could be done. And so i produced a documentary. And now we're out there in the ether in. I've met filmmakers. And i was able to clot out how i could be a part of vets and so regardless of the scope of the ambition and regardless of whether it seems to be so personal as to be small or simple massive s to be unattainable our responsibilities to dream it anyway to desire it anyway because you may not get what you want but you will get something so much better than you have one because you tried and to because more likely you'll succeed sometimes we're not afraid of our ambition and when it's not like we're frayed of we're afraid of success not about being afraid of success is being afraid of responsibility that comes with success the response moldy the comes of failure but the only responsibility you have is to understand why you succeeded in multiply orange. Dan why you didn't succeed and soul for it. But we can't let our ambitions be edited by our own figures. I like to say take out for a drink. Gets no it really. Well make it your friend because fear makes you break and fear makes you. Brave bravery makes you ambitious. An ambition makes us better. And that's how we start to create change. I love the well.

AG Merrick Garland and Democrats Are Fabricating Sytemic Racism in Georgia
"Here's the truth about America. You really have to look hard for systemic racism. And so they concoct it, they manufacture it. As they're doing here. The state of Georgia. Go ahead and by the way before we go ahead notice. It's the Democrats States that can't count the vote. It's New York City that has to wait three weeks until they know who the Democrat Party nominee, it's New York state that tries to stop a Republican from winning a congressional district would repeated recounts. How does that expand the vote? They mean expand the Democrat parties corruption. Go ahead. Among other things, I expressed concern about the dramatic rise in state legislative actions that will make it harder for millions of citizens to cast a vote folks to make it harder for millions of citizens to cast a vote. It doesn't mean you're making it hard. For millions of citizens the cast, But let me repeat this. To make it harder for people to vote doesn't mean you're making it hard for people to vote. It means you're trying to put rational policies in place to ensure the integrity of the franchise. So other people aren't denied their rights. Because people are voting in ways they shouldn't So, basically what's happening here is Merrick Garland. Is doing the bidding of Stacey Abrams. He's doing the bidding of the Democrat Party. He's doing the bidding of Democrat lawyers like Marc Elias. He's doing the bidding of Joe Biden. Nobody is prevented from voting. Since when is it? So difficult to get a voter ID. It's not difficult in the least.

India is in the news right now with the the kovic stuff coming down there and so like genetics firm that's combining with us biotech and this also a cruel disease with a potential cure as part of the plot a conspiracy involving the top echelons of the american government a corrupt and ruthless president a supreme court post to decide a case with worldwide ramifications and an intellectual scavenger hunt begins with a mention of a nineteenth century chess match so all except the chess match our hot topics political topics right now. I don't even like the premise. I literally got in the mail yesterday. A book that's out of print that i stumbled Haven't looked through it yet. Called the supreme court and the constitution. And i'm hoping talks about the fact that the supreme court should have absolutely nothing to do with deciding whether congressional law is constitutional or not. There's no way in the constitution to enforce congressional law on the state so state nullification as the obvious rebuttal. And if you're talking about the problem of one supreme court justice being unavailable you're talking about all the power in the world laying in the hands of one person when it's really supposed to be a panel of nine. I i would say it's better to have an even number on the supreme court and all ties are non-answer it does make you wonder because this book originated from the thought that there is no. There's no backup plan if a supreme court justice is incapacitated and. I'm wondering if that happens if that happens. Edison this book. Then you have the answer to our question. Well that was. My mom was just talking about that. She was talking about if there isn't a whole number. It doesn't matter if there isn't an odd number it's like it doesn't matter but it would be good like with senator. Whatever if the default state for thai is.

I wanna tell you few highlights which support your theory. Which i had never really thought of before but a minority because i bought a selena montgomery novel awhile back when we were covering stacy's run for governor and the one i got was the preacher's daughter having steamy romance. I don't know. I really could not read it. I just couldn't. It wasn't so bad. I just have no tolerance for just a gratuitous nothingness relationship stuff sacks. I can't. I can't waste my time so reading about other people doing things that aren't plot oriented about stacy abors sitting around imagining. All of these things is what. I'm thinking that it's supposed to be her. Yeah i don't think that. I don't care about that but but i would have really been able to get my mind around a spy one. If it was good enough. I wouldn't care the occasional gratuitous sex scene but during whoa also is it characters. Yeah it's all year. Those were written twenty years ago. She i'll tell you about the new in chess coming out after. Ti can probably tolerate. It's like my example of quiet american.

Biden says decision to move Masters from Georgia is up to tournament operators
"To Georgia's new voter laws, which Republican lawmakers claim are to calm fears that the election was stolen. Democrats are saying Nice try you make up alive and an election was stolen and then Passed laws they say to restrict Democrats from voting yesterday, Buying was asked if the Masters golf Tournament should move out of Atlanta. Let's listen. I think it's a very tough decision for a corporation to make were group to make, but I respect them when they make that judgment, and I support whatever judgment they make. No masters is different from other sports like the All Star game. You know the masters they live. You know, the golf tournament lives in Georgia. But Alice, you tweet about something about you were surprised that that why what would you Advised the Masters to do I would advise the Masters to continue putting on the greatest golf tournament that there is in the country in the world, and it is a important legacy for Augusta, Georgia and for the state of Georgia and for golf, and it has Absolutely nothing to do with this, And I think it's really important for corporations to realize if they're going to get into politics. They need to do so with the facts and not misinformation, and it's it's critical that people realize in this case we have MLB pulling out of Atlanta for the All Star Game, Delta supported it as well as Coca Cola. But people need to realize just because Delta is ready when the mob is and Coke is now woke. It does not mean they're right. Delta CEO initially supported this election efforts for the election integrity and codifying certain voting procedures as well as the absentee ballot and he was pressured by failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. To pull the All Star game out and to not support this measure, And now he's saying that this election meant legislation does not support Delta's values. I think that is as hypocritical and it means that this decision was not based on fact, Okay, Springville in yet.

Sounds like when you ran for governor of all the things that you learned during that process you were still kind of surprised to discover that the fact that you were a black woman was the was still the biggest strike against you. I would say. I wasn't surprised by a the narrative i was surprised by who was delivering it. That was the the disconcerting part. And where. I think we are today as a nation is that yes. There is more of a clamour. But let's be clear. This is not universal. There's no universality to him having a woman of color having a black woman as his running mate.

I think criminal justice should be real and that means there has to be just as in how we treat those who commit crimes but there has to be justice in how we offer public safety in our society. I believe in environmental justice and social justice. I want people to be able to be the most they can without these barriers that do not exist for certain segment of our society.

He didn't have the power to stop me from being valedictorian. And the humiliation of that moment didn't have the power to stop me from becoming who i would be. I think the second is that you learned to dream bigger. When you've got more time in more space you got time to just think about stuff you never imagined. I'd never met a lawyer growing up. I'd never met a politician you other than my parents. I knew very few people who gone to college or graduate school. Until i was fifteen and yet i ended up going to college to grad school to law school. I had never met an entrepreneur. I didn't know what that was until i was in college. And so part of what you can learn is that you can dream beyond the things you know because i read about them. I've found other examples that were outside of my daily life but within the scope of my imagination. I'm assuming you hadn't well. You had met a governor at that point. Yes we did the governor and so just remind us if you wouldn't mind what happened in the race for governor just a couple of years ago now so i. I had to really interesting parts of my race for governor. I had a primary and my opponent also had the name of stacy. We spelled the same way. The distinction was our race and for so many people.

"Visit the governor's mansion which is in buckhead really ritzy part of atlanta. We had to take the bus. My parents and i get off the bus. We walk across the street and as these cars arrived driving and kids from all over the state. We're sort of walking up the side of the driveway staying out of the cars and we get to the guard gate. The guard looks at me. It looks at my parents. He looks at the bus. That's pulling away. And he tells us we don't belong here he assumed we were. i guess. Visitors coming to view. The governor's mansion as tourists and my dad says no. No this is my daughter. Stacy she's one of the valedictorians but the guard didn't look at the list that he had he didn't accept the invitation. My mom had in her purse. He just kind of sneered at us and he said look. I told you don't belong here. luckily for me and unluckily for him. My parents are very insistent about our treatment in public spaces so Although my parents were injured we moved here because they were in training to become pastors. They were less than religious that day. My father was very insistent that the man list and let me in. But i don't really remember the event itself we got inside. I don't remember the event. I don't remember meeting the governor. I just remember this guy. This powerful guy standing in front of a guard gate in front of the governor's mansion telling me i don't belong there. I mean on the one hand that's incredibly sad and shameful that you don't actually remember the event itself you don't remember celebrating your incredible achievements on the other hand knowing who you are now. A lawyer prominent politician first african american woman to ever become the nominee for governor in the history of the us for a major party. You know you can't help but think that awful moment actually informed who you are impacted your life. That's absolutely true. It became part of the narrative. When i was running for governor in part because i needed people to understand that i understand that i wasn't raised with this notion that i could ever aspire to being governor of state. Let alone being the first black woman to do this. I never thought of myself necessarily as a change agent in that way but there is something very galling but also very motivating about some stranger telling you who you are and what you mean. When i ran for governor for me it was about saying look. I was told longtime ago. I didn't belong in this. And i've spent my life whether intentionally or not proving him wrong but it wasn't about him it wasn't about what he saw or didn't see me. It was about who i am.

"Of Directors for Literacy Action Board of visitors for Emory University. Oh, by the way she also quotes spent a few years. She says as a tax attorney, but she was focused on tax, exempt organizations and healthcare and I just wonder if she was really. She acts like she had our sleeves rolled up and she was doing tax law which I just don't think you can parachute into dabble I've I've. Worked at beginner level positions of like that and. I think it might be over. Blow blown to suggest that she's a tax attorney I. Don't know I mean I can't get enough details on this truly assesit. all it is that it's so much packed into such a short amount of time. She was on the Advisory Board of the women's legacy for the United way of Metropolitan Atlanta. The. Brannon towers of Wesley Woods and Don't even know what that is, but anyway she was a chair chairman of the board for hands on Atlanta she's on the board of trustees for the Atlanta girl school. This is all from the two seven two thousand seven bio. co-founder asked VP and. Chief Accounting Officer of the now. Account Network, Corporation? She was co founder of Nourish Inc. she owns sage works. Hen I. I wrote this. This is my to myself. List goes on and I. Haven't even listed all the ask us and gratuitous rewards. She's received for doing basically nothing, so she gets an award for every. Just walk down the street. Best walking down the. Day. She was also a lawyer for the city of Atlanta in two thousand five. Really, oh. Is that part of that thing that grew out of her spelman connection. Remember she did get some. We were talking about earlier. She did get some some role. No, she wasn't a lawyer that was. What she did in two thousand five, which is interesting, because it connects the two thousand eighteen when she ran, is she wrote a law that? At the time that when it was passed, that civil rights group said was criminalising poverty and was anti-black. That's what civil rights groups were were blasting. This law as the law was later used as the basis of an undercover operation where a bunch of agents when undercover wearing Hawaiian shirts pretending to be tourist, and then they got off Marta buses, because this all was targeting panhandling this anti panhandling law and as soon. Soon as people came up asking for money, they arrested them. They're pretending to be tourists so they. They arrest them and they end up going into jail. THOUSAND DOLLAR FINE TO GET OUT SO I ended up stuck in this jail pipeline because they can't get out of it. That is so uncool. Fast forward to two thousand eighteen part of her platform. Running for governor is that she's going to decry decriminalize poverty. which is the exact opposite? I like these these laws ever. Since I saw that food stamps was in the AG bill, so it's a subsidy for agriculture. I feel that way of Obamacare is a subsidy to the healthcare industry. I look like that and I wonder if it's just they had some. They wanted to justify building more jails or something that they they were just trying to generate business for whatever juice the budget or something like that I just. I always have a suspicion about laws like that like everything is meant to line somebody's pockets. At this point, you know that's interesting because there was. I'll have to find the name of this later and put it in the notes, but. There was a center that opened up around that time in Atlanta, that was four homeless people who had gotten in trouble with the law, and I have any and she was I think. Maybe indirectly associated with this I think is probably chairman of the board because she seems like she was chairman of the board of everything in Atlanta. During that year, you could be right about that. That could have been what fed that. What fed the filled up the beds in that? was claiming that were just speculating now, but. At that kind of thing I've often seen. It's that classic where the government creates a problem and then steps in to fix it. It's that you create this bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with the World Economic. Form Johns Hopkins and the World Health. Organization anticipated this eventual one. They were ready for a pandemic like this. They were ready with policies. The policies are devastating, but still in some circles these guys and they're cronies are emerging as the heroes as the savior solving a problem that they may I think they contributed to yeah. I think it is interesting as a as A. Just, for the overall idea of where she comes from who she is, how accomplished her family's and herself and why? That isn't and hasn't been may change now, but why that hasn't. It's kind of a OC. Sometimes she's she acts really smart, and you're supposed to be a racist or. Prejudice or and a misogynist to call her stupid, because look how smart she is, but then on the other hand she does these weird videos where she's making mouth noises and tells people that she's this accidental politician that she was a waitress, and her brother put her hat in the ring, even though she had done a Ted talk, she was an intern for Ted Kennedy. When she was still in college, she had one of these high school experience where they were creating her. These things they. They talk out of both sides of their mouth. She is the most arguably. COMPATIB- could be Harvard Stacey Abrams arguably. The most accomplished twenty year old you've ever seen her. Resume at the age of twenty is unbelievable, even if she's thirty at, but yeah, I think she might turn thirty recently, but age twenty that she could get an interview with any fortune, five hundred company, probably on the planet, but yet fast for two thousand eighteen, or whenever and she's just a bartender. Suddenly Alvarez may forgotten so I think that they try to swap out. These peanuts called sheep-dipping I. Think it's where you change somebody's legacy. I believe, but it's a tell. that. Stacy's sisters are similarly accomplished in that her sister Andrea is a PhD and oppressor of cultural anthropology. Her Sister Leslie also to Yale Law School. She was Brown Undergrad. She's district district judge appointed by Obama First African American appointed first african-american district judge. Yeah think so. Well I mean it was the first African American appointed in whatever may be the region. She's end, but she was. Because Clarence Thomas must have been I assume he was a judge like that before he got us from court, but I don't know. Yeah I'm my guess is? It was groundbreaking and her sister Audrey or was a scientist at the CDC? Then she started to work with Stacey on the voting stuff now that's where she is now, but these are people who were well accomplished in their own rights and. For me I mean I look at my family I. Have Pretty good resume, but I did drop out of high school. I went to community college I have brothers and sisters who? Didn't even make it. Aren't even alive, so although she does have brother WHO's has drug problems which. That's no. That's no joking matter, but anyway. I feel like. To present the hardscrabble side of it as if I know what it's like to beat these odds, and I've been fighting my whole life to get ahead of odds that were stacked against me. I would say there's really ultimately. The privilege of connections and training and opportunities transcend everything in this society of connections of government connections of Cabal, being connected to the cabal globalists' I mean her I think she the fact that she's not. Bragging about all this stuff like the like burning the flag, the fact that she's not bragging about all the stuff means that doesn't fit with her image and this is why. When people say to that point right? There I want to go back to the burning the flag. After we broke this story, and it was taken by the New York Times and flipped on its head.

Everywhere Gosh that magic. She's got it now. If you guys have heard of Stacey Abrams, who? Who probably know about her historic run for governor of Georgia two years ago in two thousand eighteen, she narrowly lost to Brian. Kemp who was then the secretary of state, and we'll be talking about that obviously bows right and Stacey was the first black woman in the US to win the nomination for governor period at first black woman. Did you hear me? Okay ever in the US, like ever okay well. I'm just saying she's history-making. She was born in Madison Wisconsin. Raise in Gulfport Mississippi, and her family moved to Atlanta where both parents got graduate degrees and became methodist ministers, so she's also a PK otherwise known. Preacher's kid. That's Oh that's a new one for me. Thank you bows. Yeah, and I know that her family really focused on education, and it showed with Stacey.

We'll talk to her about her book about November. And about all that has been happening in her home state from Georgia's primary debacle to the death of Rashard Brooks, Atlanta, but I wanted to get to know her a little bit, so let's get to it. Okay so now here's the big question of course. Are you under the tutelage of Captain Kirk. Or Captain Picard the car see I knew I knew it. I knew it all along I knew that we were. Before you fall deeply in love I think that Captain Picard is the archetype of Star Trek captain. Captain Janeway had the hardest mission and did the best work you know. What face let me tell you something. Okay, we. We Are I. Think we're meant to be okay. Because the way I'm feeling about. Jane I just wish that she had more of an audience. You know, but that could also speak to our issues anyway exactly. Which is why issue she? She was I I love card. He will always be the fight, but. It's it's is much harder to be a captain when you are stranded and have to hold your values with no one else holding you accountable. You know what this could just start off the entire conversation. Well except I feel very left out. I. I don't Watch Star Trek. I will say this. Think about it this way. In the Pantheon of men who get credit for everything this was a woman who had the was said away from everything, no resources and still managed to be just a bad ass. Yes, tell ed as I feel like everything we need to know about life and society. We learn on Star Trek I'm Gonna I'm going to have to start watching it ladies, so I can be part of this conversation, so can you into the Colt Cue thank you. Live long and prosper, right? There you go I earlier. I said made the force be with you, and both said no, no, no, that's star wars. Different universe. Very. WELL WE WANNA. Talk About Your University. Abrahams because it's so fascinating. We have so much to cover, and we wanted to start with learning a little more about you as a person I. Know that you share a memory in your new book called Thomas Now. That kind of tells us a lot about what you were like as a child that informed to you became as an. An adult and that was when you were six years old, and you got into your only school fight. Wait for it. Everyone over the nineteen eighty election between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. I love that you got into a fight at six about politics. Can you take us back to what you were fighting about and what? It tells us about who you were as a kid? I grew up in Gulfport Mississippi, which was a one of the more liberal places in the state of Mississippi but still fairly conservative. I went to elementary school that was integrated, but I tend to end up in classes. My classroom was predominantly white and young woman in the class who we actually became friends, but she we had this mock election, and she called Jimmy Carter a communist, and said that he had destroyed America, and in our family. We grew up watching morning news. We watched evening news like we were steeped in politics not. Overwhelming way, but it was what was playing and when she called him a Communist, I told her to take it back. She wouldn't I challenged her to defend her accusations? I told her I. The. Ronald Reagan was a fascist because I'd heard that terminology used as well and she threw a book at me. I, also I the second of six kids, so I was raised to understand that if he were ever a Condo in a confrontation, you should use overwhelming force to end as quickly as possible. She threw. A book is shoved a desk. Atr I one Carter, lost but I stood in my I stood my ground. You really defended yourself and we're you that sort of committed and passionate throughout your childhood. I was I. Mean I'm not. I'm not a high emotion person, but I. AM very goal oriented. I had four younger siblings and an older sister who was just incredibly. Kind to all of us US three years older than I am. But in our family we were raised to believe that you're responsible for those who are we who are on rable? Who are related to you? But we were also raised to have strong opinions, not necessarily to be confrontational, but to believe, and if you believe something, you should know why you believed it. Yeah, well, you also credit your parents with getting you where you are. Did the lessons that you learned in your upbringing or the insight about your parents they? They help you despite all the obstacles that they faced so my parents when I was growing up. My Mom and dad were both They were there working people. My Mom was college librarian. My Dad was a shipyard worker.

"And there is news news. You can use important news stacey. Abrams which she's been so busy campaigning to be vice president of the United States that she forgot to do one big important thing she never actually endorsed Joe Biden. No I saw this headline today. I thought you mean she hadn't done it already know she hadn't done it already. Headline from the Politico Stacey Abrams endorses Biden. The former Georgia gubernatorial candidate becomes the latest potential vice presidential pick to back the presumptive Democratic nominee. What do you mean she hasn't done this before now? Stacey Abrams the former Democratic nominee for governor in Georgia on Tuesday on Tuesday. What you mean. She's doing it this morning. I'm confused. She in towards former vice president. Joe Biden's White House Bid Vice. President Biden is the leader. America needs a leader who restored dignity competence and compassion to the Oval Office while restoring America's moral leader the world. She said in a statement. Distributed by the bipartisan campaign. Another words The statement was prepared and vetted and released in an embargo to this morning. So the headline is out this morning but the practical effect of this is that it didn't happen until this morning. So Abrahams Abe wait. Wait wait I it. Political Abram statement Tuesday represents another high profile endorsement of Biden from one of his perspective. Ice Presents speaks so she's not even the First Kamla Harris mclovin Elizabeth Warren Gretchen. Whitmer all top to become his running mate have similarly thrown their support but among the female the female demographic in it is likely to take the number two spot. Abrahams has most aggressively lobbied for the role publicly promoting yourself for the job and arguing. She would make excellent choice. Biden's campaign has tired of Abrahams antics as a result of this They they want nothing to do with her. They believe show her campaign for Vice. President is getting more exposure than Joe Biden's campaign for President. And they don't like it they want her to cut it out. This is just amazing though. She's been campaigning for vice president for so many said she forgot David at doors. Guy That just. Wow but a dog about putting the cart before the horse. Oh my goodness gracious..

"That leads me into the Stacey. Abrams stuff it does seem that she is campaigning. To be the vice presidential nominee for the Democrats. There's an op-ed in the in the New York Times. It's obvious whom Joe Biden should vice president. The subtitle is he needs a running mate. Who Strengthens the ticket? In areas. Where he's weakness. One person stands out Steve Phillips is a podcast hosts democracy in color with Steve Phillips. I don't know anything about him He's a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. Which is a left wing. Think tank and he's the author of Brown is the new White House. The demographic revolution graded a new American majority as Jill Biden. Formerly begins his vice presidential selection process. He needs to find a ready made. Who Strengthens the Democratic ticket? In the area where he's weakest the nomination contest has highlighted three sizable shortcomings that imperil his quest to defeat President Trump I. He has failed to generate nearly any interest let alone meaningful support. Among young people in the presidential primaries second he has consistently lost the Latino vote in third he suffers from a well documented enthusiasm gap that could undermine his candidacy in the same way that Hillary Clinton failed to generate voter excitement resulting in a drop in voter turnout among key constituencies particularly African Americans. Mr BINDS MINISCULE SOUP levels of support among voters. Eighteen to twenty nine has been alarming Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and. Then he finally gets to the point of the people most often mentioned being on the vice presidential shortlist stacey. Abrams is what he should go with a close examination of the electoral track record of the possible partner. Shows that MS Abrams best offers would Mr Biden. Most needs to be clear. Abrams is on the Board of the Center for American progress where? I'm a senior fellow in terms of success with young people. Brock Obama's political popularity's unquestioned potential nominees only Ms Abrahams perform Mr Obama in her state. I mean y'all the the the movement is on in Abrams. I guess it was in vanity. Fair suggested yes she'd love to be. She thinks she's good she I I have a hard time. Seen an open campaign for Abrahams to be president actually helps Abrahams. Maybe it does but you want someone Joe Biden were to Keel over tomorrow. Who could be vice? Who could become president and Abrahams has never actually won a state wide race. She she's been a state representative in Georgia. And that's it and people on the left. They got so whipped overseeing part of this can we be honest here. A lot of this on the White Liberal side is white guilt. They so emotionally invested themselves in in federal roy in Texas. They ignored Andrew Gillum and Florence. Stacey Abrams in Georgia Two candidates who actually more much more viable and came closer to winning Than better work did in Texas and so there's a lot of white guilt. Oh we we ignore these black headed and now we need to boost them. Listen I I think. Abrams is a credible person. I think she's an actually is a nice person. I have met her. I disagree with completely on pretty much everything in politics. But she's a good person but she's not qualified to be vice president of the United States. She's been a state representative in Georgia period. A she tried to run for higher office and she lost she. She didn't even make it into a runoff people. People Free Oh she had solo. She couldn't even get into a runoff. I don't I understand the left's love affair now with Stacey Abrams and in so much of his guilt but the reality of the matter is she's not at a level of a of a Kamla Harris who got elected statewide is attorney. General and California's is a US senator. Or what's your name Governor Gresham in in New Mexico? Who's the first statewide elected Hispanic female in the Democratic Party was a health commissioner a congresswoman and now governor? There are way more people ahead of Stacey Abrams in terms of Paul affiliations than her and and it is something about the PR machine behind. Stacey Abrams that I think behind the scenes increasingly is rubbing some Democrats line. And I've heard from some of of the national see the basically the WHO does she think she is? She was a state Rep. You got people like Comma Harris or or Amy Kluber Shar or The Governor Gershon from New Mexico who fit the bill better than Abrahams? Who on the ticket still probably couldn't get Joe Biden to win Georgia one beyond the show? All area is one of those issues where we're GONNA have to. We're we as a people are going to have to recognize that there is a level of there is a level of media generated. Love affair that doesn't necessarily comport with reality. Well connect and then in and of itself I think is going to cause us problems..

"What I smile at. Yes. That ad you tell the voters of Kansas all the things that you strongly disagree with him. And then at the bottom it says, we don't endorse candidates. That's right. We are also advertising to people that we are a non partisan organization that we don't endorse an oppose candidates. So when you watch wink thing. The most horrific day of my life. My son was a dictator drugs in the Georgia governor's race. The ACLU ran an ad touting Democrats Stacey Abrams record on criminal Justice. And Stacey Abrams will end dependence on private prisons saving millions that could be used for treatment. We were so destroyed as a family ACLU not endorse or oppose candidates. They ran an ad which you could show two thousand people and a thousand people would say if you ask them that's a political f- Stacey Abrams IRA Glasser spent thirty four years at the ACLU twenty three of them as executive director after he believes the ACLU's involvement in candidate races has crossed the line into partisanship. And he's concerned enough about it to speak out. I think it strategically weakening its mission the best strategy of protecting civil. Is not to be part of the current leadership of the ACLU would say what they're really doing is just telling you. We're Stacey a berm stands on issues. Nobody could look at that ad campaign. And it's a Stacey Abrams. It was look we are living at a time. Now, where Trump has made it he cultural habit to to do something. And then while you're doing it deny that you're doing. So the fact that they deny it is just assembling. It's just it's just. Dishonest. Ira Glasser says that this is a key principle of the ACLU not to get involved with candidates. He thinks you crossed the line is welcome to defend his right to have those years. Look, the people who get elected have tremendous power to decide whether the government is going to respect civil liberties or violate civil liberties. And so why would you not ask the citizenry to think about that issue when they are choosing? Who who they want an office? He would be almost malpractice. If in this moment, we said, oh, we're not going to engage the political process because we're afraid of being called partisan when our issues are at play like, immigrant's rights and voting rights and reproductive rights rights. We have an obligation to step up. Elections are. Forks in the road. But Glasser says they're stepping up too much pudding. Progressive politics ahead of traditional civil liberties concerns to like the presumption of innocence revenge. Point the ACLU decision to oppose Brett Cavanaugh supreme court nomination. I believe he was going to rape me based on Christine Blasi Ford's allegation of sexual assault and Kavanagh's response. The ACLU bust and flew in large numbers of women to Capitol Hill to lobby key senators and ran an ad in four states insinuating. Kavanagh's guilt by association, we've seen this before denials from powerful men did not have sexual relations with that woman. I've never seen anything like this. I categorically and unequivocally deny the allegation against me by Dr Ford America is watching the confirmation of judge. Kevin.

"Slash save station. CBS news and ach actually CNN to a CBS news poll says seventy six percent of viewers of the state of the union approved. What they heard President Trump say. To CBS. Seventy two percent say they approved President Trump's ideas for immigration. According to a flash CNN poll just revealed seventy six percent of yours approved of Trump's state of the union speech with fifty nine percent saying very positive on his immigration policies. So what does that mean? And of course, the the response of those that are radical left say that putting wall between us in the voting booth is something that is a failure.

Jake tapper tweets source, close to Stacey Abrams says that she didn't watch the president's speech. Indeed, she focused on his policies. Not is worse tonight source also says Abrahams wrote the speech yourself. So Stacey Abrams response was was not about the speech itself. But just something that she came up with. There you go. So there you have it. Most people, of course, that didn't hear the speech decided just to give an opinion on the speech without even listening to it. Now, I haven't given an opinion on his speech because I didn't get to hear the whole speech. I got bits and pieces of it. When I heard seemed very positive. What I'm talking about tonight to is by response in that is the ideologies of this country are so divided. And so we I mean, look somebody giving a comment. On the speech, the president gave without even reading the speech or listening to the speech, but she feels the need to give comments Stacey Abrams gives the democratic response. Without even listening to the speech without even reading the speech. What the hell is that all about? I mean, sure it was she has to say about you know, times division.
