Why David Purdue Felt Compelled to Run for Governor or Georgia
"Now he wants to be the governor of Georgia and would like to have him on America first today. Senator David perdue. Welcome to the Salem network. Thank you, Sebastian. Straight to be on America first, man. Thank you. All right, so I just retweeted the tweet that's at the top of your Twitter account. It's a great campaign ad. Tell us right now how the campaign is doing and why serving in the Senate wasn't enough for you. Well, I was never a politician, Sebastian. I was like Donald Trump. I was a business guy for 40 years, but I saw under Barack Obama, the country was handing the wrong direction. And I ran for the Senate to try to help change the direction when Trump got elected. We were able to do just that, created the best economic turnaround in U.S. history. Now, the only reason I got in this go to race Sebastian is because our current governor, cave dean allowed the radical Democrats to steal these elections in Georgia and we lost a majority in the United States Senate and we see the Biden madness now. So I couldn't stand by and watch this guy who can not reunite the party after he is divided the party and win against Stacey Abrams. So I'm running right now to save our state and to make sure Stacey Abrams is never governor of
Obama Speaks at Chicago Conference About Disinformation
"Barack Obama is in the news again. He attended a somewhat ironically titled conference on disinformation. The God was sponsored by the Atlantic monthly, which by the way, has been one of the chief purveyors of disinformation. They've been part of the Russia collusion hoax. In fact, one of the Atlantic writers, Franklin four, was the source of putting out all the lies that were concocted by the Hillary Clinton campaign by this guy sussman by Christopher Steele. So the Atlantic were the not only the dupes, but I think the willing collaborators of these lies. And but this conference was in conjunction with the University of Chicago institute of politics and of course they trot out good old Barack Obama who can be always counted on. I mean, this is America's leading con man. I mean, there's competition, Stacey Abrams is in that competition, Hillary Clinton. There are others. But I think Obama owns the title. In part because he's able to kind of put that pompous expression and look to the left and he looks to the right. It's kind of his style. It was a little bit befuddling when it first came out in 2008, but of course by 2012 and later 2016, everyone had sort of seen through it. It's like the con man who was like fanning out the cards, take a look. Well, you know, we kind of know the routine by now. Well, let's look at Obama. And he's talking about disinformation and here he goes. It's something I grappled with. Imagine Obama grappling with disinformation. During my presidency, I saw it sort of unfold. And that's the degree to which information disinformation and misinformation was being weaponized.

Stacey Abrams Compares Russian Invasion to U.S. Voting Rights
"Stacey Abrams is on The Daily Show You notice how they keep pushing these candidates of the far left The daily schmo The Daily Show And I want you to listen to how people are so glib about what's taking place in Ukraine and then project themselves into the situation because they are so self righteous Stacey Abrams cut 7 go We are a stronger nation when we allow people to participate And if we ever doubted that the war that Putin is waging against Ukraine president zelensky said I'm going to paraphrase him and probably poorly He said this isn't a war on Ukraine This is the war on democracy in Ukraine When we allow democracy to be overtaken by those who want to choose who can be heard and those choices are not based on anything other than animus or inconvenience then that is wrong So in other words ladies and gentlemen your Putin and the Russians attacking Ukraine sees Ukraine She self righteous She just wants more people to vote She is a fraud and a huckster As is Stephen Colbert they're a joke
Stacey Abrams Compares Russian Invasion to U.S. Voting Rights
"What Stacey Abrams told Trevor Noah on The Daily Show? This week, I hope you're sitting down, you want to think this woman is normal? Stacey Abrams, the queen of rigged elections, she's suing the Georgia election commission. For the 2018 election, now I want to know how the media is going to cover Stacey Abrams lawsuit. Because I thought you weren't supposed to challenge the outcome of an election. Or you were a traitor. Or worse. You got to hear this exchange. Here's Stacey Abrams talking to Trevor Noah last night on The Daily Show. We are a stronger nation when we allow people to participate. And if we ever doubted that, the war that Putin is waging against Ukraine, president zelensky said I'm going to paraphrase him and probably poorly. He said, this isn't a war on Ukraine. This is the war on democracy in Ukraine. When we allow democracy to be overtaken by those who want to choose who can be heard, and those choices are not based on anything other than animus or inconvenience, then that is wrong. Wow. So Stacey Abrams compares Ukraine's invasion. To voting rights in America and. Is the media going to say a word about it?
Alfredo Ortiz: It's Always a Bunch of Malarkey Coming From the Left
"I don't think a lot of people even realize that Stacey Abrams, who never really fully conceded her loss in 2018. I don't think people realize next month is her lawsuit. She's suing to try to dispute the outcome of the election she didn't agree with and she told axios this week a reporter there from axios, Americans should be allowed to question election process in America. Wow, that sounds a little familiar, but I thought when we questioned the outcome of an election, we were all a bunch of traders. What hypocrites they are? What a hypocrite she is. Yeah, but Mike, I'm not surprised, right? I mean, does this surprise you at all? I mean, this is pretty much the playbook of the Democrats. I mean, you know, I love the term and I keep using it. It's always a bunch of malarkey come out of the mouth of the Democrats at this point, right? They're trying to snow the American public. Gaslight the American public. And look, I think American public has woken up. I think they realize we're being fed a bunch of BS.
Savor the Humiliation Stacey Abrams Is Experiencing
"But at least saver the humiliation that Stacey Abrams is now experiencing. I know schadenfreude is not a very Christian principle. You know, schadenfreude, that German condition where you delight in the misery of others, do you know how hard it had to be for that woman to go on CNN and apologize? Remember, she's doubled down. And oh, by the way, in addition to her so called apology yesterday, she doubled down on mask mandates for schools. They're not willing to give up that power. But just soak it in. That if you're having a bad day, Stacey Abrams is day is a thousand times worse.
Stacey Abrams Comes Under Fire for Not Wearing a Mask
"Not wearing a mask while at a school where everybody else is wearing a mask. And she whipped out the race card. Quote, it is shameful, she said that our opponents are using a black history month reading event for Georgia children as the impetus for a false political attack. Now the point is you are a big mask manic. You were posing maskless with a bunch of Georgia children who are wearing masks. Even one of the ladies on the view got on her. Whatever. Like, why do that? Why give the right more ammunition? I mean, they always go after her anyway. And I think it was really hypocritical actually. First, her statement. First of all, this is nothing to do with black history month. It's the point is that she was not wearing a mask when she is. No, no, no, no, no, the virus doesn't come at you during black history month. You didn't, they take February off. You didn't know that? Opponents of mask mandates. And she said, I think, in her statement, her people said that she asked to she removed it. She I'm sorry, she wore a mask to the school, but later removed it so she could be heard. Maybe she was holding a breath. That woman can hold her breath for a very long period of time. Watching remotely and for the photos on the condition. She was
Spotify CEO Confirms Removal of Some Joe Rogan Episodes
"Under threat. You look at what's happening right now to Joe Rogan. And it seems like, you know, the mob is out to get him. The mobs have to get everyone. It's just disgusting. I don't think we can continue as a society. Really living like this. I mean, they're out for blood and they're like, sharks in the water. They smell it. And now the CEO of Spotify is having to say, wow, well, wait a second, you know, we're just gonna take down these podcasts, but you see, we support free speech, et cetera, et cetera and all these musicians are running for the hills. So this is cancel culture on steroids. They're trying to go after a pretty big fish. They're going to go after this for a while. We'll see how far they get. The problem is, when you give them an inch, it's all over. So if Spotify gets rid of Joe Rogan, by the way, Joe Rogan has another offer already from our Friends over at rumble. They're like, hey, Joe, come here, we'll pay you. We'll pay you a $100 million. We'll give you a deal. Wouldn't that be
"stacey abrams" Discussed on The Trish Regan Show
"The Supreme Court, Alexander Hamilton called it the least dangerous branch. It's justices were to uphold the constitution to be above politics. Now, that legacy is being tarnished by secret money from liberals, the president and the Senate were bankrolled by arabella advisers network, a record amount of dark money over a billion, put them in office, so they'll put up an arabella judge, a liberal activist, a Biden rubber stamp. A huge sum, a huge payback. The hypocrisy of the left absolutely knows no bounds. I mean, I know you know that. I know that. But yet, it's still disturbing. And really annoying when you see prime examples of it, this one coming out of Stacey Abrams down there in Georgia. Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Trish Regan show.

Unsuccessful politician that she is, and she decides to go take a photo op at a school with a bunch of little kids I mean, she's there to talk to them or whatever. They turn around, they take this photo, and you see all these poor little kids, you know, I'm not going to show the photo because they're kids, they're kids, right?

Anyway, so she takes the photo with the kids, they've all got masks. Every single one of them. The only one that doesn't is Stacey Abrams. Music. Mass for thee. But not for me. I mean, once again, we see an example of the left preaching whatever they want to preach, and yet when it comes to themselves, it doesn't matter. There's a sense that there's royalty, right? They don't have to wear. Gavin Newsom was the king of that one. Now Stacey Abrams, they're in Georgia, is like the queen. Well, it's created this whole problem because apparently her social media campaign person well, we don't know if she's really campaign. We think she's campaigning. She's putting together a staff. Person actually tweeted out the picture. Or retweeted the picture that the principal took. It's like, wow, I mean, you just announced to the world. How stupid all this is, right? She's the only one without the mask in these poor little kids. They all have to wear their masks. It's so beyond hypocritical at this point. I just wanted to flag that for you guys. Because I know you just love Stacey Abrams, right? Apparently. According to her website, she's looking for a new social media manager. Because that might kind of cost you your job. I don't know. I mean, I actually think that these people think it's actually okay. She should be apologizing from here to Sunday. Good luck.

Stacey Abrams Poses Maskless in Classroom With Masked Children
"Good day to watch us on Salem news channel. If you want to see this picture of Stacey Abrams, what do they say about that? Well, we know what they say.

Joe Biden Chooses 'Wokeness' Over Qualifications for Supreme Court Nominee
"The fact that Joe Biden is so incomprehensibly stupid as to not learn from the mistake he made when he promised to select a black female running mate for vice president and thus painted himself into a corner with such a dearth of qualified candidates. I mean, all he had to choose from was pretty much Kamala Harris or Stacey Abrams when he said it was going to be a woman he narrowed the options down so much when he said it to be a woman of color so much more so that's how he got stuck with Kamala. That's how he got stuck with this babbling, bungling, basket of crap that is Kamala Harris. I mean, how many times do we have to see her trip and stumble her way through interview questions or giggle her way through tough questions that she doesn't have the answer for. She's completely incompetent when it comes to dealing with the southern border. The one job she was given, you'd think that Joe Biden would learn from that mistake and not say I'm gonna not pigeonhole himself.

Abrams Treads Carefully in Relationship With Biden
"Regarding Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate skipping the Georgia speech. Here's what they said about this on morning Joe and morning Joe of course, I'm not sure what he is now. He certainly was a Republican House member, but has moved steadily to the left and has been a harsh critic of Donald Trump. Here's what he said about Stacey Abrams, skipping the Georgia speech by Joe Biden. I mean, politicians show up with presidents when they have 52% approval ratings. Politicians don't show up with presidents when their approval ratings may be in the 30s in a state where they are. There's another reason. Are you getting the tires rotated? And right now in the middle of COVID, that's kind of hard. I just don't know. I would say this about whatever. This is politics one O one. I find it fascinating and it speaks less to stay Stacey Abrams that really does than it does when she perceives Joe Biden's political standing to be in the state of George right now. That she's not showing up in an event that was custom made for her.
'Biden Went Down to Georgia, He Was Looking for Some Votes to Steal'
"This will probably put a smile on your face. I love this. This is courtesy of the great Mark Davis. Morning host and my dear friend on 6 60 a.m. the answer in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex. Biden went down to Georgie, he was looking for some votes to steal. He's in a band as parties way behind he's looking to cut some deals. He expected Stacey Abrams in an atmosphere that's hot. But when they asked if she'd show up, she said, boy, I think that. I guess you didn't know it, but you and Kamala are through. And if you care to take a look, you'd see we're done with you. Now we've played second fiddle, but it's time for something new. The squad and I, riding high, we're coming after you. Joe said girl, I hear you and it might be a sin, but I'll take a nap. I don't give a crap. I don't think that I can win. Biden tried the same old lies it's getting pretty hard. His last fight in Georgia in the public getting tarred. He says secure elections are a cancer on our soul, but we know it ain't Jim Crow two. Love that. Great work by Mark. And we've offering that little parody song to you franchise if you want to have it on your phone or share it with somebody. You can just text the keyword devil to one 806 5 5 6 four 5 three.

Stacey Abrams and Biden Blame Scheduling Issue for Voting Rights Speech Absence
"Stacey Abrams didn't show up. Stacey Abrams didn't show up to the speech that Joe Biden was supposed to save as presidency with. So Biden's speech was about voting rights allegedly and all about fixing the filibuster and yet for whatever reason Stacey Abrams who's running for governor of Georgia, same state. Her issue, she wasn't there. And it has Democrat commentators going wild with speculation as to why Stacey Abrams wasn't there. Now let's just be clear, Stacey Abrams has never won an election outside of a state representative race. She lost the Georgia governor's race. She always gets platformed as this Democrat savior. It's really bizarre. And they say that, yes, Stacey Abrams is the reason why Rafael Warnock and John ossoff. Won the Senate races. Now there's only a couple explanations. So Stacey Abrams comes out and she says, yeah, I wasn't there because of a scheduling mix up. Now let me tell you somebody who let me tell you about something that I could be from a first person perspective. We've run a lot of events at turning point action. And when we host the president, president Trump, and he calls us, there's really not much of a negotiation that happens with the schedule. It's not like, hey, we're coming to Phoenix on Wednesday. Like, how about Friday? That just doesn't work. You cancel what you have. And you know what's amazing? And I could say this from personal experience. That when you tell whoever you're canceling, that you're doing so for event with the president, they totally understand. So you're trying to tell me Stacey Abrams had something more important to do than go and greet Joe Biden when he comes down to Georgia? Stacey Abrams had a more pressing commitment. Where was she yesterday?
Stacey Abrams Noticeably Absent From Biden's Voting Rights Push in Georgia
"Joe Biden seems to have set himself the task of destroying constitutional democracy. In the name of saving it. Now, like the devil Biden went down to Georgia and kind of for the same reason, he went down there to sow the seeds of lasting corruption. And I'll start out with the observation that interestingly Stacey Abrams and in fact a number of the kind of voting rights groups the left wing groups in Georgia decided to stay away. Why? Well, in the case of the voting groups, they sort of said, listen, worth staying away because this is all talk and no action. This is very symbolic. Biden's not really doing anything. Of course, it remains an open question what Biden can do Stacey Abrams just said that she was really busy. She had another appointment, so think about this. This is apparently Stacey Abrams's number one issue. This is the big effort by Biden to try to get this kind of reshaping of American elections past the finish line, but Stacey Abrams had to have hairdressers appointment, or someplace else to
"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.

"He was a hero of the west but likely a tax cheat. That's when they put him in jail. But this was basically stacey. Abrams working as an intern. Foreign oil company controlled by kissinger and rothschild's to infiltrate the school age kids of russia. And teach them about quote democracy. So i would say she sounds like a spy and you can have the rest of the show because i took more than my fair share. Time while there's more stacey. Abrams news on top of that. It's related to that. And that is that. She is releasing new book as well. It's a supreme court thriller called wild justice. Sleeps this legal thriller about a supreme court justice whose descent into a coma punch the court and the country into turmoil. Now i want you to listen for the the cultural topics that stick out her. She's an agent of cultural. Change is basically with all those things seem to want justice league which is coming up next tuesday. It has a sprawling plot that features a us biotech features a proposed merger between a us. Biotech company and an indian genetics. Genetics firm does. 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.

Because stacey abrams told seth meyers maybe a year ago or so talking about her books that she writes characters that have jobs that she would have if she wasn't doing. she's currently. So maybe i'm implying stacey. Abrams hurricane spy because she couldn't spell it out anymore. You've got to pin name. You're talking about yeah. I write spike here just because i want to be a spy in another life. Maybe you are a spy. That's amazing that you would say that. Because it really reminds me of the anderson cooper thing where his only job was with the cia and he went to yell and yell. And i'm gonna i have her. Cv handier curriculum vitae. 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. It's pure propaganda and found out later is actually written by six guy but it was so well written that i didn't care you know i don't i don't care nowadays..

"Another young black woman who has this ambition to be told by people she trust that she's thinking too much and she wants to much and she needs to stop because when that happened to me there was no one could turn to face it before because no one had gotten this far as i got it. 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. There is much more interest and it is a louder. Clarion call them. We've heard before but there are still those who doubt and who questioned both the legitimacy of and the utility of So where are you now then in terms of answering those three questions for yourself what do i want. Why do i want it. And how do i get it. What i want is i want people to have opportunity and that that sounds so vague and fortune cookie I think poverty is immoral. 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 protected the governor. He was a state trooper and he felt it was in his power to diminish me and while he did have the effective erasing. What could have been wonderful memory for me. 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. That was the only difference. They could tell they actually called us. The stacy's something that would never happen with men and so my first campaign for governor..

"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. And who i intend to be and this is my state. This is my country.

"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.

Hi Everyone I'm Katie. COURIC and I'm Bo Saint John and this is back to Biz with Katie and bows. Those. I don't know that you but I'm super psyched today. Because Stacey Abrams is such a Rockstar, and I'm sure you probably agree. Oh yes, certainly agrees she has that black girl magic. It can't be bottled. Hers is coming out of our ears out of her toes. 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. She graduated Magna cum laude from Spelman, and then she got her law degree from Yale, so she's quite the smarty pants. She then served in the Georgia House of Representatives for ten years. She's been an. An, activist, her whole life, fighting particularly for voting rights, and she's got a new book out. Bows called. Our time is now. It's perfect for this moment and this movement. It's a call to action to protest, but also to participate and vote during this age of transformational change. That's right. This is perfect and I'm so excited to have her on this show. Not, only do we share being PK's, but she's also a fellow trekkie. Hey, look. For Baby. We know what I'm more of a picard person, so we'll see where she is. 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.
