"Welcome back America, too. You had joined now by a United States Senator Rick Scott of the Great State of Florida he chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Always welcome them. Good morning, Senator. How are you? Good morning that but Joe Biden's gonna collect all of us, but he didn't give us the greatest 22 ever if he just keeps it up. Hey, and Ed Markey. I want to start with Ed Markey. Your colleague went out and called for Biden. Getting four picks to the Supreme Court because of Supreme Court is reactionary and broken. Can we get every Democrat on the record about Ed Markey's radical proposal? We'll be pretty easy. I mean, that would ever Chuck Schumer tells him to do I mean, the Senate Democrats. All they do is Chuck. What do you want to do? We'll vote that way. I mean, I mean, look at the issues. I mean, I mean, they're Thies, Democrat senators don't represent the state warning clearly doesn't represent Georgia and has him doesn't represent New Hampshire and Cortez, Masto and Bennett and Kelly better represent their states. They represent. They were sent in New York. That's right. They vote to give more money to New York against their own state's best interests, Right didn't living. I would like to see a list of how much money each city got, because Atlanta sure got screwed by Raphael Warnock and I don't know what happened in New Hampshire. Quick, quick update on that. Is Governor Sununu going to run against Maggie Hanson? I hope so, Um, I mean that the public stuff you said he's not against it, and you look at the polls has and has him's not doing well. So here's what I think. I think I think we're gonna pick up Georgia against warning does represent State Kelly in Arizona. I think Cortez Master's gonna lose in Nevada, I think has him was gonna lose in New Hampshire, I think wouldn't be Bennett. I mean, what's going to happen, I think is people look at the Biden agendas. There's a wait a minute. We've got to change. This is gonna be like 2010 2012 2014, where we pick up seats because of Obama's agenda. Now what I talk about every day is do we want doing with open borders? Know Do we want to shut down schools? No. Well when men playing the women's sports, No, don't shut down The Keystone Pipeline know. Do we want voter ID? Yes, and the Democrats on the opposite side of all those issues, and I'm gonna make sure everyone Arkan knows about it. I'm also wondering whether or not Senator Hasson and Senator Kelly are going to vote for the nominee for associate attorney General Gupta, who is as radical as they come. I mean, it's happened and Kelly going to actually vote for Gupta. Of course they are. Because Chuck Schumer tells him to. They just they don't have any independents out there. It's just it would ever Chuck Schumer tells him do that's what you do mean. Kelly in Arizona, voted three times this year against border security in Arizona has him voted against Open school hasn't voted four men playing the women's sports. Hey, they will represent their states anymore. So whatever if he says, Oh, you gotta vote for this nominee. They're going to say absolutely Mr Schumer will do whatever you want. Forget our states. We don't represent our states anymore. We represent New York. Now we saw Nancy Pelosi come out and try and staunch the bleeding on court packing yesterday, which is why the Ed Markey Kate matters to me a lot. Senator Scott. Is there any way to force a vote on court packing because I don't think Schumer will let that come to the floor. He's not stupid. Hey, might be left wing and radical, but he's not stupid in America is revolted by the idea of touching the Supreme Court. I want to get Hasson. I want to get Kelly and Senator Warnicke and Senator could Cook says I want them all on the record. Can you get a vote somehow? But when they try to do you know when we when they try to do another reconciliation, which they're going, it looks like they're gonna try to more times, maybe with their infrastructure in their tax increase bill, then we'll have the ability to make them vote on anything so So that you know when you when he had that its vote a Rama, we can make the Democrats vote on anything. Everything. I mean, they voted affirmatively. We got to give those stimulus checks to those murders, pedophiles and rapists. They did it. I mean, if you can't make this stuff up how they're voting because it doesn't represent their states, you can't this country Now let me ask you about Bennett and Cortez Masto. You can't beat somebody, no matter how radical they are. Unless you've got somebody who's a good candidate. Who do you got in the in the Centennial State of Colorado and down in the silver State of Nevada? Who do you got? We got. We're having lots of conversations with people. What's happening is more and more people are saying, Hey, I think I might get in because I see how bad this agenda is. So I think what's gonna happen is as this year goes on, we're going to see more people have happened. I'm having a lot of conversations with people. I know the state parties are having a lot of conversation with people in those states and other states. But I think what you're going to see Is all across this country and all 34 states where we have senators up Republicans a good show up because they're gonna say Hey, I've got a shot even as state that appears to be you know, more further to the left, then to the right, So I think we'll see a lot of good people. Don't endorse in primary senator, but I do. I do point out weaknesses, and I think well, I want to talk to you about Eric Greitens and Rory McCrory. Governor. McCrory lost the last time when he ran for reelection when every other person on the GOP side of the ticket one and I think Eric Greitens is scandal plagued and is an apt. The only guy in Republican the only Republican in the hunt, who can lose that race is Eric Greitens. Well, you talk to them. Is this something you share with them? Even if you do it privately. Well, I tell people I tell people where they are. I tell the people what their what they have to do to win and I tell people what their weaknesses are part of part of what I do. But look, you know what I You know what I'm my experiences is the voters of pretty smart. The voters in those states say, Look, I want to win. And there was negative to Kansas could that could win the general election? I mean, if they're if you remember when I got in back in 2010 every Republican in the country and endorsed my opponent, But the voters said, Wait, Wait. We want somebody We want a business guy that has common sense. They want to go change the direction of the state. I think the same thing is gonna happen there. We're going to hopefully have good when we have open seats were having good opening good primaries, and I think we're gonna get good candidates. Let's take a look at Georgia. I asked Karl Rove about Georgia the other day, and he loves Herschel Walker. But he thought Herschel Walker is a Texan and I've heard people say Doug Collins is the best nominee for that. Do you have an opinion on that? Is Hershel living in Texas? A problem to his returning to Georgia? And do you have any notice from him of what he's going to do? Rehearsal decides to run he has..

"If passed with threaten your re alexa. Listen when i five voting rights. It's clear to me that this really is not about me. Whatever the outcome of my own particular election we cannot afford to have our democracy hijacked. Which is why i will continue to insist within my own democratic caucus and here in the senate that we have to pass voting rights no matter what the stakes are much higher much higher than my own election during our conversation about voting rights i asked him about. Hr one piece of legislation that has been passed by the house. Democrats best chance to counteract some of these restrictive voting rights measures that have been passed on the state level. The pill will targeted partisan gerrymandering change voter registrations and update federal election. Laws weight hasn't been done in the law. But it's coming up against the realities of a fifty fifty split senate where republicans are united in their opposition against that bill. Do you think that democrats should get rid of the senate filibuster. The measure that needs sixty votes to basically pass legislation in the name of passing a voting rights. Act like hr. Do you think that that is a worthy effort. Well we're clearly going to have a debate in the senate about the filibuster but we're voting raises concerned. The question really is not. How do people like me. Feel about the filibuster. The question is will more of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle support voting rights. I guess when it'd be clear would you support ending the filibuster to pass those bills. You just outlined the john lewis voting rights act and the other voting rights measures. I think that at the bare minimum there has to be a carve out for issues that speak to our constitutional rights whether we get rid of the filibuster or not. We have to pass voting rights so for me the question right now is do. We have sixty votes sixty people in the chamber. Believe as i do that the four most powerful words ever uttered in democracy are the people have spoken therefore we have to make sure that the people speak and so. That is the question that i intend to continue to lay before my colleagues and the onus is on them to see how they will respond but we must pass voting rights no matter what on right and he seems to suggest that on this kind of question what he considers to be essential to constitutional rights that he's open to it to try to end the filibuster he was an openness which is consistent what he said during the campaign that if republicans are united opposition. If it's an issue that so central to restoring fox writes that he would do whatever was on the table including Ending the filibuster. I think that this is kind of the consensus of the majority of the democratic party in congress is at right now. The problem is that they're going to need the universal agreement including from the president for this to get down. There's no margin for error and that's currently not really hard. I said i wonder where you are by the end of this interview with warnock because you end on this kind of grim reality that lawmakers in georgia have just passed restrictions on voting. That may hurt the very people who helped get worn collected and any remedy to that looks far off in congress and so how can warnock be sure that would he describes in that sermon as a form of violence the capital riots. This rollback of voting rights. How can he be sure that that is truly the end of an old order and not just the way things are and perhaps will remain. That is the question. I thought was central. Is how does he maintain hispanic that what he sees as an arc. That leans beautiful and up brutal. We'll continue it. Seems as if your story is one that has a hopeful arc that as you mentioned the old order. Slipping away the last gasp of that rattlesnake as you said it. How do you have that confidence. How're you have that hope that this is not a backlash that will be successful but one that is waning. Let me be very clear. What you're hearing from me is a is an abiding sense of hope. But i'm clear about the tragic character of all of it of history that in our own democracy we go through fits and starts we have these expansions and then we have these contractions. We'd take two steps for it. We take one step back but it's so worth it and every now and then we get to sit on the step and say wow look what we were able to do. We elected a black senator. We elected jewish senator. We passed covert relief for the people but then new challenges will come and we have to face those challenges together..

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

The deal has the largest anti poverty law in a generation. One study projects. It will lift. Almost fourteen million americans out of poverty including five point seven million children while the relief plan has broad public support. Not a single republican supported the legislation. We spend the rest of the hour with heather. Mickey author of the new book. The some of us what. Racism costs everyone. And how we can prosper together. Have there is the board chair of color of change and former president of the think tank. Demos thanks so much for joining us. Heather congratulations on your new book. Thank you congratulations on twenty five years. Thank you so much. The whole team at democracy now is celebrating. Hopefully soon we can celebrate together. Well you just sat there and watched once again. The reverend warnock you tweeted while he was speaking and said everyone should do themselves a favor and watched the speech. Can you talk about the significance of what happened in georgia for this whole country. Reverend warnock the first black democrat to be elected from the former confederacy. It was so moving. I mean i really think of the crucible of the twenty four hours between january fifth and january sixth as american promise in american paralyzed nutshell. I we saw a multi-racial coalition a multi-racial anti-racist coalition that was standing up to four years of division pain and suffering and putting the man who is the successor to reverend dr martin luther king marching through the pews of that story to church and putting him in office. Along with reverend with jon ossoff. That was an historic moment. So many of the political class had counted georgia out and yet a coalition that went from black folks who had been organizing for years with stacey abrams and the touch brown Two white women in the suburbs who turned away from the republican party for the first time and generations young people really overcoming a number of barriers to the ballot in the middle of a pandemic. Did the impossible with the promise of relief from this pandemic. it's self disease that has retaliated disproportionately on people of color. But that has shown that our fates are inextricably linked and then not twenty four hours later the dark spirit of american white supremacy. Fueled by a big lie that has as its core logic racism. The idea the common sense that of course a man who was rejected by the majority of people of color could not possibly have lost the presidency. That of course when people of color vote it is somehow suspect and criminal. This is the tension and explore this tension in my book because fundamentally racism has been the most powerful tool wielded against the best of america against american democracy against cross racial solidarity against the american dream itself. I talk about how it's brought us. The inequality era and figures like reverend warnock who put into perspective who in their own lives have so much of the course of american history on display are whom we need to look to right now to remind us that that tool always robs this country. It's best

Were just elected in that special election in january. Obviously a closely divided swing state the state of georgia. Now we'll be up again in two years because it was a special election.

Relief is right around the corner. Help is on the way we're about to pass a historic piece of legislation that will cut child poverty and half we'll give workers the relief and the support that they need in this bill.

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

"warnock" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Why did you think that now is the time to run an office and run for. Us senate well. My whole life has been about service. I'm pastor served beneath baptist church. But i've been engaged in these fights from that copay for years i've been fighting for healthcare access and affordability for years standing up in acts of civil disobedience demanding that we expand medicaid in the state. I've been fighting for voting rights at work alongside. My friend stacy abrams. We registered through the new georgia project. Which i chaired. Four hundred thousand new voters in the state. I've been standing up for the dignity of workers and they're ready to share in some of the prosperity that they've created and i think my passion for these issues emerges from my life story someone who grew up in public housing down in savannah. Georgia wanted twelve number eleven and the first college graduate my family so my success as a result of hard work but also grants low interest student loans. Good public policy. I know the difference that good public policy meetings and as running for the us senate and so in your campaign running around the state. That hasn't voted for a democrat for president since ninety. Two and president-elect. Joe biden is on the cusp of perhaps winning the state of georgia talk about one. Why president-elect biden's message seemed to resonate in georgia and what impact that has had on your race and also talk about what you've heard on the campaign trail because i can imagine you went all around the state. You didn't just stay in atlanta campaigning. No that's a good point. I've been moving all across the state. And you know that. That's important jonathan because there is this narrative in georgia politics. There's atlanta and then the rest of the state and so i'm from savannah southeast part of the state. But i've been on a bus moving across the state dropped by small towns like america's george <hes>. Cuthbert georgia down randolph county. And the people are surprised. When i show up and i'm surprised that they're surprised but they say to me that they have not seen a candidate show up in their town. Which is interesting to me. Because i'm running to represent the whole state rule and the north and the south. And i'm getting to see first. Hand the concerns that people are having and what do people concerned about. They're concerned about healthcare. They're concerned about the fact that they want to make sure they don't lose the coverage that they have that coverage is affordable had eight hospitals close in this state largely because we refuse to expand medicaid is the unnecessary war that the republican party has waged against president obama who no longer in office and the people are the casualties in that war. Their hospitals are closing in these rural areas devastating rule healthcare and also taking away jobs. And so i think the people voted the other night when they voted for joan by. And when david purdue failed to get a majority of his voters even though he's the incumbent and i finished ahead of kelly leffler even though she's the incumbent that people are voting for unity over division and chaos there voting for healthcare they're voting for a livable wage and the ability to retire with dignity. They're voting for the best in the human condition and the american spirit when you're out on the campaign trail though in those parts of georgia that perhaps aren't hospitable to a democratic candidate. What kind of response are you getting. What are you hearing from those voters. I think people appreciate the fact that you're willing to talk to them. And that's my orientation is not a strategic political decision. Quite frankly part of what running gives me an opportunity to do. Is to do what i would normally want to do. Anyway and spend time with talking to people who don't see the world exactly the way. I do one of the things that disappointed me. About the fact that we're living through this deadly and tragic pandemic is that i had hoped earlier in the campaign to get across the state and drop into some of these wednesday night bible studies. I'm a passenger after all and they're people who don't share my politics but we read from the same book and there must be some values there must be some common ground. There must be a place where we can talk about the things that we actually agree on.

Warnock and us off too radical and the stakes are too high. Paid for by ESA fund not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee. Yes, a fund com tapped our police, calling them Gangsters and thugs. Rafael Warnock also attacked America saying this God America, Warnock said. God America, but he thanked God for a man who murdered a police officer war not advocated for clemency for a convicted cop killer. That's right. Raphael Warnock. It's so anti police that he thanked God for a cop killer and pushed for him to get clemency. It's no wonder radical groups that want to defund the police have endorsed worn off. He attacks are police as Gangsters and thugs. But he advocates for a cop killer.

"warnock" Discussed on WBAP 820AM
"So in other words, I'm watching this story. And I a poor everything that Raphael Warnock represents. I hate most of what he says. I don't like his politics and I'm almost positive. I would detest him as a human being if I actually met him. But all that being said, Let's be fair. I don't know if this if this ex wife is telling the truth Now a couple of things, and I do understand that, according to the Democrats in the media, the woman is always to be believed, right in these kinds of situations. That's what we all learned, and that's all what we were told during the Judge Cavanaugh. Senate confirmation hearings is the victim is always to be believed, and that's what people like Kamila Harris and Hillary Clinton and the media have been scolding us for, You know, better part of a year or two. Apparently that it doesn't necessarily apply you for speaking about Ralph. I owe more knock or Joe Biden. Because she always had his own situations with terror read, So I'm just going to tell you. I don't know if this woman is telling the truth. I don't know if this woman is lying, But let me tell you what I do know. What I do know is that people lie. Men lie and women lie and oftentimes when they're lying, they're lying about their acts. It's just unfortunately what we do, but see, this is This is less a example of Raphael Warnock and his behavior because we don't know what's true and what's not. But it is an example of the media's hypocrisy. Because a quick search around the world Wide Web you will find this story nowhere. There's literally nowhere. But if this were a Republican And you had an ex claiming all kinds of nasty things. Well, you know that it would be literally everywhere. So what does that tell you? It tells you once again that there is a double standard between Republicans and Democrats. The media's not covering this and the media is not covering this because they clearly obviously what Raphael Warnock to win his race there in Georgia, four United States Senate. By the way, the reverence Republican opponent, Senator Kelly lawful, er use the situation to issue her statement. Rafael War knocks ex wife Joliet's allegations Are deeply troubling. Domestic abuse is a very serious issue, and this new body cam footage is clearly difficult to watch. I didn't find it difficult to watch. Georgians deserve answers to these very serious allegations. And his ex wife's voice deserves to be heard. And she is right. Kelly La Flor is correct. Next wife's voice does deserve to be heard. And it's up to you is to whether or not you believe what's been going on or not. She's been silent. With all of this since this whole thing happened back in March, haven't heard much from the ex wife regarding this incident or any other incidents than I know of. So That's going to be the question. Will anybody really look into these allegations? It does seem to me that these are the allegations of a necks and as a lot of people know Allegations made by exes can often be wrong, defamatory, accusatory and it can look really bad when in reality, you just have a very bitter action, and lots of people can identify this and relate to this. And so I cannot believe I'm saying this, but I feel like I need to stand up for Raphael Warnock and just say that I feel like maybe Tucker and the folks that Fox News are treating him just a wee bit unfairly. It's 9 42 on newstalk, a 20 wb ape. This'll is Marchal a van and then they talk about you're gonna disenfranchise the voter. What you're going to disenfranchise people. Lot's wife. You gonna disenfranchise the dead? You get a disenfranchised people vote from out of state and I could go on and on and on mark loving. And today he had five on the news and talk of Texas Use talking 20..
"warnock" Discussed on Swing Left - How We Win
"That you learned from him. Yeah i i met congressman lewis When i was very very Growing up in the south growing up in atlanta in particular i just became fascinated by one of the learn as much as i could about civil rights history and so i read john lewis memoir walking with the wind about his time in the movement using the student nonviolent coordinating committee in his early twenties and was so inspired that. I wrote him a letter me. If i could meet with him or interview with them or volunteer for them and being the kind of man that he was he not only wrote me back up to the chance to come and spend a couple of months working with them and then took me under his wing and guided me through my career And he instilled in me a real belief in the capacity of people working together citizens working together to expand opportunity and justice and human rights for all people on this planet and that that is what i am passionate about building the beloved community that john lewis dot us about where we recognized folly of racism and violence and poverty but we don't accept already and homelessness as where we build bonds of trust between all people rooted in a recognition of our of our common humanity our commitment to human rights. Yeah i love that. Those are not those are aspirants but also things that we need to be working for every single day. So i'm grateful for the work that you continue Doing that in two thousand seventeen. Of course you ran for. Congress came very very close to flipping a very very red seat and your race was somewhat of a bellwether for the blue wave that Happened in the midterms. You're no stranger to a georgia runoff. Besides the obvious difference in campaigning during a pandemic. What's been different about this senate run from your congressional run while well you know six weeks before i got in that race for the us house. The republican incumbent had been reelected by twenty four percent right and twenty eighteen. Stacey abrams lost the governor's race here. Infamously running against the man who administered the election by just a point and a half. I mean georgia has become younger and more diverse every hour of every day for the last ten years and that has been met with an extraordinary investment in volunteer recruitment and voter registration mobilization organize. And that's why. Joe biden was able to edge out donald trump in the presidential and how we were able to force both of these senate runoff senate runoff So you know we are building a movement statewide here for health jobs and justice for all people you've got. The young jewish son of an immigrant mentor by john. Lewis running alongside black preacher. Who holds dr king's pulpit at ebenezer baptist church in atlanta and that just shows you how far we've come as a state and as a region that these are. The standard-bearers is the most competitive state in the country. And i want to urge everybody to to stay involved and get involved in helping because we can achieve extraordinary things where we when these races we can ask a fifteen dollars minimum wage. We can expand the pell grant program and ensure that no one has to take on debt to get a four year degree from a public college or nhpc you can pass student loan debt relief. We can make extraordinary investments in clean energy infrastructure. We can pass a new civil rights act to advance criminal justice reform. But if we don't win these races mcconnell will block all of that so the opportunity to do real good is here. And i'm urging folks to elect john j. o. n. dot com and sign up to make phone calls text. Bank getting you sort of have a running mate. You mentioned the the other campaign reverend warren campaign and you all are been joining forces. How's that coalition. Been working out. And how's that helping to make sure that both of you are engaging with a diverse group of voters. Well it makes me reflect on the first meal. I ever shared with john. Lewis what he wanted to talk about was the alliance between jews and blacks in the south during the civil rights movement as a young jewish man. Working in his office he wanted to impress upon media. Importance of that alliance. That would be nurtured richard sustained and i know that he is looking down on me and the reverend running and and smiling and urging us on because it represents that historic alliance for human rights and civil rights. I mean it was nineteen fifty seven when dr king established the dlc atlanta one thousand nine hundred eighty eight when the temple. My synagogue was bombed in atlanta and the alliance has just grown since then. So this is the new south and and you know that the republicans since the early nineteen seventies have have run what they call the southern strategy. It's all about dividing southerners along racial and cultural lines. But we're building a multi-racial coalition based upon shared economic and health interests of working people. Here and the the movement energy georgia right now is is something special. We're we're gonna help. We're gonna go to elect john dot com the site that you mentioned elect john elect j. o. And dot com. We're gonna go there and swing left of course is is working really hard to Plug people into your campaigns. One last question before i let you go that we always end with what gives you the most hope for the future. Give me the most hope for the future is all the young people who are coming out to us rallies and voting for the first time and the extraordinary intensity which young people are passionate about advancing civil rights criminal justice reform and saving our environment raising wages for working people establishing healthcare as a human right and the opportunity that we have when we win the senate races to do so much good for so many people. So i'm asking all the young folks out there to double down. Make time to make those phone calls activate everybody you know in georgia to get out to the polls And help us win a record. Seven point seven million georgians are registered to vote ahead of january fifth. So we have a lot of phone calls to make. And i know you have a lot of work to do so thank you much.

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

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

"The meat. Thanks so much. Georgia senate candidate rafael. Warnock says quote pro abortion pastor. So i tweeted out recently. You cannot be pro abortion and also a christian in my defense that is not even the spiciest take i had in that twenty four hour window for whatever reason i guess it got a lot of engagement on. Twitter and raphael warnock defended his support for abortion on demand tuesday by declaring himself to be a pro choice pastor. Not sure how that one's gonna work in georgia. I think that dog's not going to hunt and georgia conveniently. I'm reading reading from life. News dot com conveniently. The democrat candidate did not mentioned that his choice is to kill an unborn child. Nor did he. A pastor mentioned the bible recognize unborn babies as valued human beings. We're not said. I'm a pro choice pastor and i'm trying to understand how he could possibly justify this biblically and theologically and of course he can't. We probably haven't spent enough time and raphael warnock who it might be one of the most radical candidates ever running for the united states. Senate this is a communist. This guy is not a pastor. And i would venture to say that i think if he calls himself a christian. I got a lot of problems with that. Because if he's a christian then. I have to call myself something different.

"I'm one of twelve children in my family. I'm number eleven first college graduate. I often say i went to morehouse. Wanna pull chase scholarship person and a he he here here. I am years later. I to get through school earned. Hd degree at money for the us senate and so and at the moment in american history where there's so much on the line and people need Care response from this. The nineteen talents. We got people in georgia were at risk for losing their healthcare. Kelly left my has our way and just keeping on it to represent the working families of georgia and that i will continue to do what they did last night on that debate stage you know outside of you. I was listening to your opponent and She kept saying. I was called to public service. I was called to public service. But i i mean i am. I wrong in this. Wasn't she appointed well. She wasn't pointed and the people of georgia disappointed. He knows alu- and and that's why she is spending tens of billions of dollars. Try to step down. I mean think about this woman. is the wealthiest member of college. She's been mazzi since january and now that it's time to phases of people to do. This is why. I want to stay in the feet. She could fradin makes the case for herself but it interesting. She hasn't even try to make a case for herself. Well why she should say what is the body of work that she is offering to provide for the people of georgia and so. I think it's sad that she apparently doesn't have too many good things to say about herself so she's trying to attack me. But that's not a reason to run to the. Us senate my momma top is not what they call you is what you answer by And I i'm not going to be distracted by by the politic distortion distraction and division of people who had no business engage individuals. They don't know how to lead us and so they're trying to divide them I'm georgia through and through my dad's from scriven county. My mama's from waycross wake up jaw. Wait mother grew up in the nineteen fifty When like the last black teenager she spent her summers taking somebody else's tobacco and cotton cheese now eighty two years old and in the long are of our amazing country She got the other day. Who woman who used to pick somebody else's tobacco Now has the chance to help pick her youngest son. The only the tenth black united states senator in the history of our country And the first black. Senator from georgia This is a great country. We got work to do But it's always been vocation to push us water. Perfect million and i probably could people enjoyed georgia. They give me a chance to be making pro. You know let let limp. Okay first of all. Let me tell you something. We've been pushing on this show since election that the relection that early voting begins december fourteenth through december. Thirty first election day is january fifth that we got our early voting in that we. We're going to early vote that we got our ballots in and we're going to show up. We've we've been pushing that we're even pushing to all of our listeners. Who didn't vote to go. We want you to be a part of something. That's going to change the direction of this country. So we're we're we're on that for you sir rhetoric on right there. We'll be right. Back with more steve harvey morning show. You're listening to morning show. We're back we're talking with reverend raphael. Warnock what i wanna do right now is give you a moment to clear up and put some things into context solve all these negative ads on tv too that these people have putting this money behind strategically place them. After every time you wanna add date. They negative ads. You know in in context because you said it on stage of that. You'd never met castro. You've never been in a room. It none of that but this this thing is when you when you walk on when you in context when you were saying opened up the jails and let our children go. What in what context was that actually being see who last year. My church had a conference That's the part of my ongoing. Where i've been working on criminal justice reform for years and never in my work by the way have i ever said he found the beliefs. I've never said it and Don't you know what i did. They would've you know they've been looking over and over again. But that's not how i talk about the problem and that's not anything i want to do But i do recognize at the united states of america. The land of the food warehouses twenty five percent of the world's printers think about four percent of the world. Our country is we're house. Twenty five percent of the world's business much of that has been driven over the last forty years by of so-called war on drugs that too often has been a war on black and brown community. We've got a greater percentage of our people in jail. Greater percentage of black people in jail than did south africa at the height of apartheid. We got more people in prison than any nations on the planet and much of it is driven by this which more on clubs and we saw what happened and the eighties and the nineties. It will crack epidemic now. We're witnessing the opioid epidemic versed at the epidemic was largely black and brown and urban communities face of opioid epidemic Is largely light as we see it and rural areas suburban areas. And over the course of time. We've come to see this. Drug problem is a public health. Emergency and that's right. And so. I think we need to see this as an opportunity because what we had in the eighties was the war on drugs. When you have a war you gotta enemy combatants and prisons. You have a public health. Emergency had twenty about. And you try work on it in that way and so No i i think that We've got to. We imagined the relationship between the system Andy community hold on a second. We'll be right back. Sit tight force will be right. Back with more. Steve harvey morning show right after this. You're listening to every morning show. We're back and we'll continue now in depth conversation with our senate candidate here who we've got to get to the polls and vote for we're voting to people Guess was reverend raphael. Warnock path of the kings one of the things. That ironic about this moment is that all of the forms of discrimination against which dot the king fox voting rights. Discrimination housing discrimination. Those forms of discrimination are re inscribed moment. Our children carry than name belen once they enter into the system. In fact you don't have to be convicted of anything. Mike church has been expunging criminal arrest records now the years he was the first to do it at kelly others have now followed our example by the way i had an expunged event. Just the better while. She's trying to act like. I don't support the military. There are people walking around in our county in our state in the country. He's never been convicted of anything. They have an arrest record in a lives are on hold. They can't get a job. Can't find housing because they have an arrest. What and so. We need to reset And reimagined these relationships. We need restored of justice and we need fewer prisons and more preschool. You know something I see now. That brings a lot of clarity tour. Because what average people don't know us eighty percent of our people in prison in there for non violent drug related offenses and so what what they don't even understand by you making a statement like that and they tried to put it into context you open up for. Just let everybody out on the street like that data. What that is you know. You talk reasonably looking similar. Didn't they just pass a prison reform. Bill de just admit that that was an over incarceration of people who are serving absorbed sentences that that shouldn't have to. But and i just i just watch the way they do it Sir i just wanted to give you a moment to clear that up so we could the politics of you know you you put your you know the politics here and then they're running these ads Where they running this whole thing. I think about this. On the pastor. That either i got a phd. Spend my life in public service. And now they're lifting at this team of dangerous right you know what exactly you know with the over and over and over and if anybody could watch that debate and turn around and some wheel and vote for this stoic rehearsed robotic performance reverend to see you actually talk about the issues and what you were gonna do and the things that matter to people in the state of georgia we're well-positioned to make history in the state but more importantly to make a difference to make sure that people have access to affordable health care that the people we call essential workers we actually give them an essential wage that we helped the people to get their voice and their votes heard in their democracy. i wanna encourage listeners to go to vote worn out dot com Even if you don't live in the state you can volunteer digitally you can support our effort and certainly can give to our campaign and tell everybody you know.

"warnock" Discussed on 790 KABC
"When I got in this race about 14 months ago, I was telling everyone that Georgia is the most competitive state in the country. I know that you all believe me, but there are some who did not. Well, we have proven in these last few weeks. The change has come to Georgia. Change is coming to America and retirement is coming for Senator David Perdue. What kind of change? Well, why don't we examine the other race? Raphael Warnock, who's protected by the media and will continue to be protected by the media, is a deeply deeply radical candidate. How radical is Raphael Warnock? He praised Reverend Jeremiah Wright's speeches. Warnock has for years been one of the most vocal defenders rights. Infamous 2003 G D America servant, which compared US leaders stall Qaeda and claimed HIV was invented by the government is way to kill black people is, according to the Washington Free Beacon. According to Politico, the Democratic candidate is expected to face negative ads the target his ties to Jeremiah Wright. Warnock has a long history of anti Israel extremism, Leffler wrote on Twitter. That is absolutely true. He gave a speech last like this year talking about how Israel is an oppressive regime murdering Palestinian innocents. Not only that. Wright came to national attention in 2008, obviously as the spiritual adviser to Barack Obama and then John McCain because he was a pansy in that election, refused to mention Jeremiah Wright anywhere throughout the election, even though he was an ideological mentor to Barack Obama. Warnock is an open defender of Jeremiah Wright in 2014. He prays that GD America sermon in a speech at the Auburn Avenue Research Library, he said, quote you ought to go back and see if you can find and readers I have the entire sermon was a very fine sermon. You're my right was right when he said the attack on him in a real sense was an attack on the Black Church. The message of Jeremiah Wright was the public policy has consequences. In 2013 Warner called Wright's sermon a very fine homily in his 2013 book, the divided Mind of the Black Church. Actually compared Jeremiah Wright to the biblical Prophet Jeremiah. This would be the same term I write who engaged U. S and Israel of engaging in state terrorism and said that September 11th was America's chickens coming home to roost. And that is that is Rafael Lorna, who's running for Senate in Georgia right now. Raphael Warnock. Also, it turns out was implicated. He was actually arrested in 2002, apparently after allegedly obstructing a police investigation into suspected a child abuse. Tom Cotton. The senator from Arkansas tweeted out about this yesterday, he said in 2002. When the police investigated suspected child abuse and Raphael Warnock church camp for Children, Warnock was arrested for obstructing the investigation. Well, the media asked Raphael Warnock why he interfered with the police investigation. According to original reporting at time, Warnock and Marc Andre Wainwright, the assistant minister for youth, or accused of trying to borrow a state trooper from interviewing counselors at the camp. Another war not nor Wainwright was a suspect in the child abuse investigation, but they interrupted a police interview of a counselor. The minister's interrupted a police interview the council Wednesday in a room at the camp and after investigators moved the interview to a nearby picnic area, interfered again and subsequently tried to prevent a camper from directing police to another potential witness, according to charging documents. There's according to Baltimore Sun in 2002. Cooper. Diane Berry of the State Police, child and Sexual Assault unit, said quote. I've never encountered resistance like that at all. She pointed out. The counselors were informed they could leave at any time they still consented to be interviewed. So this is this is rough out, Lorna. Excellent, excellent stuff. This is who the Democrats have decided to put up as their nominee. This is what Republicans are gonna have to fight back against. Joe Biden administration is not going to turn these people away. Joe Biden's administration is going to welcome these people. Joe Biden is acting like he's a bulwark for moderation. Yeah, fat chance coming up. Let's just be frank about this. There is no limiting principle.
"warnock" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Raphael warnock. Welcome to the podcast. Great to be here with jonathan. We're talking because you're senate race where how many people you were running against their georgia in your race. I don't know if i could even kill the there. Were twenty one people in my race and the names were listed alphabetically. My last name is war. Knock okay and so as was the case. When i was in elementary school when the teacher said it's time to go to lunch or recess. I was the kid next to the last kid in line and so it was in this in this race. But i finish. I that's significant. I didn't know that the names were listed in alphabetical order. And your last name begins with a w. the person got the second most votes her name starts with an l. You got thirty two point nine at least as of right now. Last i looked thirty. Two point nine percent of the vote was it a million six votes already. And she's the incumbent who spent millions of dollars in this race that's right and you got almost a million more votes than the person who came in third which is the congressman who is trying to knock out the incumbent. So let's start at the beginning. Why did you think that now is the time to run for office and run for. Us senate well. My whole life has been about service. I'm pastor serve ovens a baptist church. But i've been engaged. These fights from that pulpit for years. I've been fighting for healthcare access and affordability for years standing up in acts of civil disobedience demanding that we expand medicaid in the state. I've been fighting for voting rights. I've worked alongside my friend stacy abrams. We registered through the new georgia project. Which i chaired. One hundred thousand new voters in the state. I've been standing up for the dignity of workers and they are ready to share in some of the prosperity that they've created and i think my passion for these issues emerges from my life story of someone who grew up in public housing down in savannah georgia one of twelve children number eleven and the first college graduate my family so my success as a result of hard work but also pell grants low interest student loans. Good public policy. I know the difference that good public policy makes. And that's why i'm running for the us senate and so in your campaign running around the state. That hasn't voted for a democrat for president since ninety. Two and president-elect joe biden is on the cuss of perhaps winning the state of georgia. Talk about one why prison-like biden's message seemed to resonate in georgia and what impact that has had on your race and also talk about what you've heard on the campaign trail because i you went all around. The state didn't just stay in atlanta campaigning. Nola point i've been moving all across the state. And you know that that's important jobs and because there is this narrative in georgia politics there's atlanta and then the rest of the state and so i'm from savannah southeast part of the state but i've been on a bus moving across the state up dropped by small towns like america's george cuthbert georgia and down randolph county and. The people are surprised. When i show up and i'm surprised that they're surprised but they say to me that they have not seen a candidate show up in their town which is interesting to me because i'm running to represent the whole state rural and urban the north and the south and i'm getting to see first hand that people are having and what do people concerned about. They're concerned about health care. They're concerned about the fact that they wanna make sure that they don't lose the coverage that they have that coverage is affordable. We've had eight hospitals to close in this state largely because we refuse to expand. Medicaid is the unnecessary war that the republican party has waged against president obama who no longer in office and the people are the casualties in that war. Their hospitals are closing in these rural areas devastated rural health care and also taking away jobs and so i think the people voted the other night when they voted for joan by and when david purdue failed to get a majority of his voters even though he's the incumbent and i finished ahead of kelly leffler even though she's the incumbent that people are voting for unity over division and chaos there voting for healthcare. They're voting for a livable wage and the ability to retire with dignity. They're voting for the best in the human condition and the american spirit when

"I've heard from terminally ill people and and war veterans and people with severe career depression and just the messages. I've gotten a little last few months. Have Blown me away and fill me with such gratitude like he was saying this the gratitude for Getting to do something different and it wouldn't have come along or getting to live life in a different way that we wouldn't have gotten the chance to live. It's it's weird because it doesn't make sense on the surface but at a deeper level it does Roberta in the chat said. I wish it didn't take death for people to be nice vice. I'm like well I guess there's some truth to that right. I mean people treat other people differently whenever it's a life and death thing and if we were to see life is temporary in these precious moments why waste him on being divided nasty and hateful and all of those terrible things. It's like alphabet. Take some kind of a crisis or some kind of an awakening to get us through to behave in the ways that we should have been in first place. I feel that way about when I came to you. Reject my faith people are like well. Something must have happened to you and your life for you to reject Christianity. And I'm Mike will used to apologize for that like well. No it wasn't a big saying I just rationally came to the conclusion Blah but the truth is sometimes it does take a cage rattling moment in your life where you stop and just take stock and daddy long edition all over again and start from square one and see where the path goes. Sometimes it does take that kind of thing for you to reassess right. Yeah it's okay if it does whatever it takes whatever it takes. I've got on the switchboard nine. Three seven thanks for waiting on me. You're on the thinking atheist. podcast around with Dave warnock warnock. WHO's this only my name's Hannah Nice to nice to talk to you? Thanks for calling the show. What do you have for your question what do you think? Oh Man Well first of all I gotta say that you've been a huge influence to me and source of strength And then the middle a little bit of a D conversion myself. It's been the last few months I was raised extremely fundamentalist Christian It's physically seventh day. Adventist them if you know much church. man yeah. I was Just a a little briefly of my background I went through a long period of major depression and anxiety and the whole time. Trying trying to pray myself out of it you know in college ended up dropping out how to move back home Went to you know I lived with my parents who you helped me take all kinds of you know going to the doctor taking all kinds of drugs drugs to help me get out of the depression and I I think it was just a combination of slowly Slowly getting out of my head Volunteering at a Church nonprofit but just being in the moment and helping people and not worrying so much about myself is what finally you know helped me in combination with judge anti-depressants than Therapy and it's a long story how I talk about this or please do million it. It sounds I mean knowing Gabes background and how it really was the humanist in Dave that caused him to reject a lot of the fundamentals of his face Jason towns like you to have a whole lot in common. Oh Yeah so much. If you're in a little bit of his story I'm I'm very touched by it and I think it's so beautiful all to to focus now on just the present moment and what we can do to help each other right now versus spending all of our time thinking about the next life and just throwing away actually. I had a question for both of you. I'm not out like I have Outed myself or talked about any of my family I'm twenty eight now And they know that I've rejected being a seventh day adventists. It's for a long time about five or six years But I just taking that next step and embrace being or atheists. I'm not really sure what I am But I'm trying to decide if someday I can ever have a conversation with my dad about this and and maybe in the big game of things. It's not it's not worth talking about it with my dad and hurting him about what I actually believe is true because my dad has been cooler in the church growing up. I mean I even asked him to write a letter to me and my siblings Just kind of giving a sin stories about life and is a device you know from like Papa J we call him I have six siblings. We had a really big family and very loving. Big Family I I have a lot of great things to say about my dad in that sense. But you know he He's in his early seventies now. He's got some health problems and I thought it would be really cool to just have a piece of you know a an essay. Basically away from my dad to his kids about life and things that he's learned and I ended up getting this email from him. That's like three pages long all all about. It was basically a stream of Bible verses and like confessions about how he's such a sinful man and how it's so important just to live for God and the and Heaven Jesus because of all the mistakes that he's made in the past and he's so grateful that he has to God and I think I think that was one of the few months ago I think that was one of the final turning points for me. Just say this is ridiculous. This letter that my dad has given us in in terms. Like oh remember me this way and it had no trace of personality at my dad and it absolutely breaks my heart. Yeah that is heartbreaking. It's it's it's it shows how religion dehumanizes and and it causes him to be absent from himself and I find that tragic in terms of First of all. I'm glad you're doing well. It sounds like you're you're processing things really well As far as telling your your family and Fred that's a very personal decision and it's different for everyone The only thing I would say is as much as you can be authentic making honest with yourself being authentic person and if people in your lives are keeping you from being that then. Sometimes it's worth the conversation just to let them know that you've changed your views on things but yeah I. I guess the idea of not wanting to hurt people unnecessarily but it's it's a tough one. It's a tough balancing act. I don't I don't know I'm sure you've talked a lot about these. Things recovering from religion is a great resource for you haven't connected with them. It's they've got a lot have good Help in regard to navigate those waters and I would encourage you to. Don't worry about the labels like m I M. I think agnostic a seeker my this on my that quite frankly these are they're useful descriptive. Sometimes whenever we're trying to sort of frame where we're at but but life is a journey and so don't you know punish yourself because you can't pigeonholed because you can't just stick yourself in a box you don't fit in the box. You are a diverse and complex complex person and you're going through a diverse and complex journey in that journey does belong to you and you can frame it any way you want. You can call it whatever you want ultimately. I just want a lover what Dave said an authentic life. I think that's really what we want for. You is to is to not be an echo of someone else's voice but to try to find out what's true and what's not. What's that line by Matt Dhillon Tijuana believe as many true things in his few false things as possible? And that's a great way he did life. Isn't it so and in terms of changing your mind the phrase I use a lot now is a poem by by Maya Angelou Luna says this do the best you can until you know better and then what do you know. Better do better. And that's the best description for me personally absolutely and in how people when they say. How can you go from being a Christian to to an atheist? I didn't say well I was doing the best I could that I learned. That are now showing better and I'm going to try to keep doing better to die and beyond that. Remember that you're not alone. There's a ton of people who were going through or have gone through the two people on the right on this call with you. Who are who can speak to your journey? Because we've gone through something Kinda similar and we get it and so you're not alone and you're not crazy okay. Hannah thank you guys so much. I really appreciate you. It's a pleasure to talk to you Hannah. Thanks for calling the show. You should just host the show Dave. I should just retire tire and I'll just hand. Never while you know I do not have that radio voice. You got that radio void. When I was in the Church would have called it my spiritual gift? This was the Lord gave voice so that accuracy Lord gave you that voice so that I could go and speak with one more time. Can we do one more phone. Call Real quick before you and I kind of put exclamation point on it. You Bet whatever you WANNA do. Four eight zero. You're on the thinking atheist podcast asked. What's your name might and in Phoenix Seth? You do have a real waste boy. I tell you You've got the friend hang on just a second there's a little bit spotty connection So if I ask you to repeat the question nothing personal but go ahead Yep thank you Listen and I just want to tell you you are an inspiration to me. Let me tell you. And the reason I say that is because as an atheist I'm constantly asking myself Secretly asking what happens when I died and and yes I I still get scared because I don't have the answer. What happened happened? What's going to happen to me when I but then people like you come a long day and remind me To enjoy like now that life is now and just make the most of it so you know all the people that you do inspire me to keep going and I do and I love life and because of people like you. I WanNa thank you very much for that. And that's all I had. I just want to say that and I and then you know no. I just messages like that from people like you just being the world of me. It's I've said this before. Honestly if I wasn't getting the feedback need back. I'm getting in getting to do what I'm doing with dying out loud and the stuff I'm busy doing life would be much more difficult right now because I would basically be getting up up every day wondering what I'm GonNa do with my day and essentially just watching my body disintegrated and wondering when I'm going to die this energizes me like nothing else else ever has and so thank you for saying that and taking the time to call in and means a lot thank you so much for the kind words all right take care. Thank AH I guess that takes us to sort of an exclamation point here. I mean what do you WanNa leave us with. What's the lesson? You're trying to teach US dave it couple of phrases that I use over and over and and carpet the DM is is is the way to say seized today with a little bit of an exclamation point you know and then We do not remember days. We remember moments and life is nothing more than a collection of moments and we but we have to be aware of that we have to be the looking for the moments we have to give the moments a chance to happen is another way of putting it because what that means is we're causing in life long enough have to let the valuable things rise to the surface and and recognized the beauty of them and that for me personally and I've had a lot of people ask me. What are your bucket list? What do you want to do for me? The best thing that thing the charges my battery is to connect with people. And that's why I'm traveling feeling like I am Because these places I'm going are small venues for the most part and the travel is is exhausting but the connection with the people looking and say says hugging next crying together laughing together conversation Those are those are beautiful Moments and I find such value in them and I think we can all we all do if we let ourselves if we make ourselves if we give ourselves that opportunity that's that's essentially what I'm talking about like he said you know make the most of this live live at the best. You can make sure you're getting the most out of every day. It's it's such a cliche but it's something if we give attention to. I think we can. It can make a difference Dave warnock. It's an honor to be able to have you on the show. My friend end you charge battery. I can tell if it's watching the chat room and everybody's like you know. This guy is awesome. Many encourages me and so we know that gift that you feel like you've gotten your giving right back to the audience. I hope you feel that my friend and we'll be with you on your journey and whatever that means here okay then. My pleasure appear to be with the theft and thank you for having me..

"Talking here on the broadcast with my special guest Dave warnock. He's been so kind to spend some time chatting with us about his own journey diagnosed with A. L. S. Lou GEHRIG's disease given three to five years to live live and rather than say nothing and do nothing. He has gone on a campaign for lack of a better word. Called dying out loud.

I have to say area code seven zero two. You were on the thinking atheist podcast with guest warnock. WHO's this while ended? You saw sean. You have a comment or question for us today. Basically he said he had like some sort of disease or like I was I just joined so I was like I really hear everything yes. He has a terminal illness and has been given three to five years. Okay so basically what I want to like. Put out there that Our bodies are basically walking energy temple any user any affection is basically it goes through the spiritual. I The manifesto Until the physical. So basically any you. Can you enter Angelic Angel Code Basically he'll saying like the I appreciate your call but yeah I think this is probably not the the platform you want my friend. We don't hold the spirits of the supernatural. In fact a whole pointed. The discussion is that we are living life today. Based in the here and now feet planted on terra firma without magical thinking say we reject all. It's not like By that that's what I wanted to call about. 'cause I you know like your like your diet. Your mind is powerful powerful anything that you think is healing so you want to heal yourself or you have to do is think about it. And that's how you heal yourself if you think negative than the universe like universe will chime negative. I'm not talking about God like God is just adding people now. You thanks for hanging on hold on hold on okay I mean I don't know if you want to jump in or are we just kinda done. Hey look look here rogers talking so all right I mean it's that's true the nobody's ever going to die right. You just think nice. That's better thank yourself. Well and nobody dies this. I don't see that happening. Do Physical death you can't you. You're not getting Nek state physical death but at least to maintain this physical body you can still like you know have good intentions than wellbeing to you yourself. Do you realize I believe he had good intentions. But I I consider what you're saying better nonsense. Do they realize what you just. I said to my guest you.

His health is his own fault is ill. Health is terminal diagnosis. A gold. Well like since you guys like quote unquote say. You'RE ABE is you. You already ready. Cut Yourself off from any possibility of healing yourself. You know so. y'All really touch us off. Box from limited source of power at that point so I Y- yeah. Yeah and it's just the way you see things Are you saying that Christians never get a ls or die of terminal illnesses. Well that's different Any religion basically structures spirituality. So in that bag the forms Christianity is like. It's not really taught me taught properly. You get what I'm saying so the you know what I'm saying. So that's kind of different. Well you know you've you've got some great ideas and it sounds like you're fairly young. I don't know I'm just guessing from the sound the tone in your voice but you can talk to us and twenty or thirty years when you've lived a little life because these are just some really grandiose ideas that don't have any substance in truth Bruce if what you're saying who you can't walk in on all the little all over land you're judging. You're judging anybody. I'm not as yours air. Judging in your phone call by saying that. Yeah because I'm not thinking enough positive thoughts. I'm not getting well and you'd be hard pressed to find more positive person on the planet than me so I may have your age. I wasn't relating in that. Ah That's fine. I'm just telling you you sound like you haven't experienced a lot of things because you've got some ideas that as far as I can say and see Are Not based in any form of reality question however. I think we've been pretty generous Dave. Let's move on I think. Thank you for Radikal much-appreciated. Let's try another one and see what this one ask for US nine to zero. You're on the thinking atheist podcast. WHO's this aw needs Give you order. Yes because the It is experience and South I realize you both inside I. I kind of sucked by hold similar stories to mind in that Six years ago. I was thinking thirty. Five years I have called to stuff excludes started and sal I I don't know I thought it was his and her soren dollars five years ago. I made your luggage breakdown call wherever I our time for. What do you think they got lost? And they said three to five. I have one year fast. That's kind of a good deal. Ah this point I really can't walk. I could take three steps as long as I buy my cardiologist two weeks ago all and he has to bid that so. I'll make a Joe Halloween. Saw as you're gonNA make you fat so I'll i. I'm a lifelong. If you still think shop brief time and stopping in Santa Claus and I think that's a very positive birth for me in that I don't have that fear of Hell All my friends and family will the religiously accepted that. I'm that's what it is so I got that I'll tweet some kind of stuff their watch so really I really. Yeah one of the two that I really resonate with that And I really appreciate your spirit I can just feel it through the phone. You're just very positive and upbeat and I love that. And I I want to Echo Echo that. It's I've said several times that this is at once the best time of my life and the worst time I have been all right are you. You know they're not as progressive as your. I'm still fairly functional but it's state and I can feel it and there are times when I get frustrated or sad or angry at what's happening in my body. But at the same time I have just this platform I've been given to talk talk about dying out loud and talk about things that matter and that are having impact on people I hear from people all over the world who's heard our show or seen a show or or go to speak and and meet them in person and I've connected with these beautiful people and somehow the things I'm doing are inspiring people and I've never. I wouldn't have gotten this this window of opportunity to do this if it not been for the diagnosis. So it's A. It's a very paradoxical doc successful Situation it'd be but it's it's it's wonderful. I know what you're saying. It is yeah it's better to say I've already voted for my wife that was had just physical big grill done by says. She's that stupid. which Kinda that's what? He what he spotted about. Is it just a half dollars is so you the full wonderful enrich. Well Gosh Yeah it. Does it allows you to focus. Well well it forces you to focus on the things that matter and you peel away the things that don't and that's really the core of my dying out loud message that I'm talking about 'cause it's really about living out loud and grabbing the moments and and w what would they do and those kind of things that have kind of taken off but it really is it it forces you to zero in on what matters and let everything. It doesn't matter. Follow the wayside and most of us in our lives. Don't ever get to do that or we. Don't stop to that. We get caught. We get caught up in the the life that that ends up taking charge of us. And we we. We don't take charge of our own lives and we don't write our story and in that way down. What you're saying is exactly it? We were talking about the dialogue with dignity. So you think and My Pass is probably going to be a little different because she follow up particularly passiveness reviews. It looks like what's happened. Just say he's out starts loosing more and more than from south right. It'd be within within months web. 'cause I have absolutely no feel. There should die in that they fiction. Well thank you for sharing yourself and your story ed off my friends really do appreciate you all right take care. There's a line in a film from twenty years ago called City slickers where Era Jack Palance his character's talking to billy crystal. And he says you guys worry about a Lotta she it and I think you know Dave's got a point and like we think about all the stuff that we carry around the baggage that we have in our lives and then you receive a diagnosis like this and man. That'll flat out center. Did you find that was the case for you. Yeah it that's it and it and it really caused me to They're down on on what matters and let go of what does it and it started resonating with the people around me and it is Kinda funny. I mentioned that. What would they do things? We have a local group here. Vex Christian atheist to we meet once a month or so have a meet up and just kind of gather and talk about what's going on in life sort of thing and the meeting that we had right after my diagnosis noses was charged with emotion and a lot of people crying and sharing their reactions to getting the news and it was a lot of tears than really heavy having meeting and one of the ladies was talking about a difficult day she'd had that week and was frustrated and anxiety whatever and she just caught herself and Pasta and I said you know Dave would not be upset about this Dave. He's got such big things in front of him and we'll why not letting this little thing get to me and someone across the room said Yeah. What would they saved? And the next thing I know they're saying ww DD and she's an artist she started making these ww DD bracelets and offering them on our facebook page in our website for people just to get and where as a reminder to focus on what matters to grab the moments in life and and one of the most incredible things to me is to wake up in the morning and see a message from somewhere in the world and saw message a few weeks ago from AH person in Paris France with a picture of a WW DD bracelet on and a cat and this descend me a message. They heyday thinking of you. Grabbing the moments I get the chance to do that. Man I just. I'm it's overwhelming and it's gratifying and it and it just means thanks so much that that stuff I'm talking about and and the way that I'm facing this is somehow helping people navigate Difficult things and not just every day stuff. I mean some difficult stuff I've heard from terminally ill people and and war veterans and people with severe career depression and just the messages. I've gotten a little last few months..
"warnock" Discussed on The Thinking Atheist
"Conversation lined up for you today with a very special guest. His name is Dave warnock. Dave likes to say that he is dying out loud God and this statement is literally true. He was diagnosed with A.. L. S. Lou GEHRIG's disease and given three to five years I to live. He has made his journey public. He has been hash tagging carpet. The fucking Diem. And he has a website. Dave gave out loud dot com. And he's been out there speaking often publicly about living life and facing death. He is traveling as much as his body allows him to travel and he's been speaking to people far and wide about the ticking clock of our temporary lives and the importance of making the most first of every single moment. And we're going to have that Berry conversation right here right now Dave warnock. It is a pleasure to speak with you my friend the pleasure pleasure to be here. It's a difficult conversation you know. I want to try to be upbeat and I don't want to manufacture it. I'm talking to someone who has been very public about this diagnosis this terminal used the word fatal. How do I address it just no? I don't know how to do it other than just. Speak it directly about it. So that's the best way I don't. There's no need to tiptoe around it. In fact I make people uncomfortable around me because I will joke about it and and They'll look at me like am I supposed to laugh. I don't know if I can laugh or not but I I just kind of address it head on and I don't get to around and I just it is what what it is and So we're talking about it like you said out loud and it's it's a subject. Death is a subject that no one likes to talk about. I think it's become become clear to me that that is something people are uncomfortable with. Then I think there are many reasons for that and we can talk some about that as we go along. But now don't don't feel like you've got I too I don't have to tip toe around anything. There's no question that's off limits. Everything's okay all right. Well I was GONNA say you're I know you're an open book right but if I do say anything that's treads into uncomfortable territory. You just let me know okay. You set the all right. Debut used to be a pastor like a straight up evangelical. Can you tell me about that what you were like back in the day early on I was what we would've known back in today's a Jesus pizzas freak I Got Saved during the You know that terminology got saved. I Dunno most. You're probably understand what that means. Either that's Christie's as for gave my life to God Converted whatever at the age of eighteen Back in the seventies mid seventies and so I was at st three preacher coffeehouse runner. Doing all the things that I thought God wanted me to do because his return was imminent and I was about the the kingdom in business and doing everything I could to win the win. The lofts because Everything was everything was urgent back. Then we you know we taught and believe that Jesus Swiss coming in a year now and of course it's been about forty years since then and as far as I know he hasn't come back. I may have missed it but I don't know That was me and then I'll through the years oftentimes I was on staff at churches as an as an associate pastor or worship leader youth leader leader all the different roles that one by feel in a in a in a congregation. I I did them at some point or other other times would be I would have my own business and do it or things things to make a living but it was a kind of a hodgepodge career wasn't Straight arc of went to seminary and got a pastor. It was it was more like the lungs along the lines of you called by God and you need a seminary degree or any kind of Anything like that. You're just called by God and equipped by the Holy Spirit to do his work. That was kind of our understanding of things like that. So were you more pentecostal or were you more of a conservative pentecostal. It was charismatic The the term charismatic had to to do with people who were baptized with the Holy Spirit spoken to so that was that was my identity. I was a charismatic. Evangelical believed. The Bible was the word. God Inspired air truth with no contradictions and the word of God. God centered. I believe that settles that sort of idea. And so. Oh you know you're you're in Tulsa you know the word of faith people and the steelers and that was. That was my for many years. That was my tribe. That was the kind of thing I I believe in taught in and so yeah I believe the Bible was real that God could heal people and I spoke in tongues. I can still speak in tongues. Now they don't on a podcast a few months sedillo everyone else. How does that work? I mean how. How do you explain muscle memory? It's muscle memory. It's a train behavior. I think looking back on it. I thought at the time I thought it was the inspiration of spirit but obviously it's not because I can still do I could I can. I can talk in tongues for five minutes than it would sound just like it did back when I believed I was praying and heavily language. Did they have a class or something about how to speak in and with through the spirit I mean I I don't know we. We had speaking in tongues a little bit whenever Wa- was in my mother's pentecostal church but to me. It just sounded like aval Mike. I had no idea it is. It's complete that well and and no there's no classes but they people would would co if you were praying to receive the Holy Spirit. People would coach you and encourage you along and It's it's almost embarrassing to talk about. It now says because it's so weird heard I get it but it's just. It was what I believed and I know a lot of people right now still today. That believe in that. And they believe me. And my brothers and Evangelical Pastor East Texas and they believe in all these things just like I did. They believe in angels and Demons and answered prayer. And God speaking to you. You know. It's a look at it now and it seemed so strange because I've been out of it for ten years now and so a look back doc on it and that is oftentimes. I'll go. Well how could I believe that day. How did you make your way out of the face? Can you sort of give me the snapshot on a Journey Yeah. It was a process as with most people. I've talked to you in this in this journey. It's a over time you Over time I would realize I had questions and issues. That would happen that I didn't see God stepping out for and I didn't see God's hand in and and you know I push that down over the years and and excused it and and kind of looked away but I I would say it just became a a wave of too much Too much stuff. That wasn't adding up to God being present and so back in two two thousand and nine. I just been relieved of my duties from a church in here in Nashville Tennessee area. where I live because I was just I mean the the main pastor and weren't getting along and and so i. I started really examining why I was having difficulty difficulty connecting the dots with this faith that I'd give it my whole life to become one too many problems for me and so I just began a a journey over a year and a half period of time reading and and even praying and Writing things out and looking at the inconsistencies. He's in the Bible and in the faith and the the way that God doesn't show up in the world and it just became too much and I finally let myself ask the hard questions questions is he really there Have you ever been there and I just came to the painful conclusion that I've been wrong my whole life. That's a scary place to be right. I mean you're sort of pot committed at that time you've given so much of yourself you're part of the pastor it and then you have this amazing sea change range and you think what now right. Yeah it was very traumatizing. It's the best word I can use. I was completely disoriented. Did Not know another person on the planet at that I could relate to and and could talk to this about i. My whole life was immersed in that ended up losing my marriage over it Two of my three adult children. My daughter's dissociated for me because they couldn't endorse my atheism. So it cost me a lot to basically be honest with myself and and that's really what I was doing. I came to the places that I had to be honest with the thoughts and ideas I was having in the questions. Shinzo having and and the only alternative was to northern in and to not be honest and I couldn't do that and even though it costs me a lot it was the only choice the head. Can we talk a little bit about the symptoms. You began to notice. Obviously something that caused you to go and and seek CNN medical attention. Can you walk us through those days. Yeah as with anyone else have seen or met with. Alas it starts very gradually with things. You wonder what is this. Why is this not working? Mind started ALYSSA's very Mysterious unpredictable disease in stocks with different people in different places racist and mine started in my in my fingers and I noticed I worked in insurance biscuits before I retired and I noticed that I was having trouble. Double forming certain words letters on the forms filled out and and that became harder and harder to do over a period of several months. And I wrote it off for her at carpal tunnel or something you know. Maybe I'm just getting old and weak and need to work out more and things like that but my hands started my fingers having trouble buttoning button button in the opening packages and then several key moments like trying to bowl and not being able to grip a bowling ball trying to get a golf club club which I've done my whole life and realizing I could not Grip Golf Club and swing it. And that's what I knew. Something was seriously wrong and so I waited till the first of the year so that would blow through my insurance deductibles. You know without having to spend two years And so I started going to the doctor in January of this year and went to primary care them referred to a neurologist and another neurologist and a series tasks and then the final task was what they call an e and g which measures the relationship between your nerves and muscles. How are your nerves serves communicating with your muscles to tell them what to do and mine were not communicating? There was a mutiny going on and that That test is very conclusive looser and it's very immediate. And so he told me that morning 'cause I asked him to tell me the truth I I've seen straight up. I said do I have less. And he said yes and he paused and he said I hate to give you this diagnosis. But you know the L. S. and then I went to the elevator and walks into my apartment and Mela changed.
