We wish Jefferson well as he continues his academic pursuits.

Constitutional conservative GA Senator and Candidate for GA Governor Hunter Hill came on the show this morning to discuss why he is running for Governor. Hill has been a member of the GA Senate since 2012 after returning home from his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. During this interview Hunter Hill talks about the importance of the core competencies that he would focus on in the state if elected as Governor. These being public safety, education, and transportation. Hill made the statement that the current restrictions on the education system is “stifling leadership” not just within the classroom but even into the administration within the schools. Hear all these details and more in this interview.
The Huffington Post, it’s reputation for Left-wing accuracy based on its cunningly creative polling techniques, predictions and prognostications, now sullied and left in tatters after Trumps victory, is embarked on what one might call a Corporate Retreat event, in fact a bus tour of “Middle America,” visiting twenty-three “Hick” states, so their young staffers can observe and decide what went wrong with their message and what they can do to correct it. The “yokels” must be convinced they were wrong; that Trump is a buffoon, not to be trusted and because of them (the yokels) America passed its last best chance, with Hillary, to be an equal among equals.
It means of course, not just observing, but actually associating face to face, with those country “rubes,” sitting at their dirty lunch counters, drinking their oily coffee, tasting their greasy hamburgers and occasionally being urged to enjoy an RC Cola and a MoonPie. Perhaps the Huffington Post crew should start their faux American educational tour at Frostbite Falls, Mn.. These self-important “reporters,” not limited to Huff-Po alone of course, come in at least two identifiable categories. The ‘shallow reporter’ who immediately writes and publishes the first thing they hear, even if it’s from an anonymous source (rumor), a ‘reliable’ source (an official rumor), an open source (somebody else’s rumor), or no source at all, so long as it advances the Leftists agenda of destroying conservatism. If it’s anti-Trump or anti-Republicans, more the better, even if it has to be manufactured (fake) rumors.
These young people have a limited education about real life, meaning, they know the world according to Marx, Lenin and George Clooney, but not what middle-American writers have said. To them, Mark Twain was rustic “hick” and his writings basically reflected a white America. Edgar A. Guest, an English born American, who wrote a poetry column for over forty years in the Detroit Free Press and syndicated throughout the nation, encapsulated a 19th-20th century America in a prose that these people simply don’t understand. These “shallow reporters” have
less than a passing acquaintance with fact checking but, facts be damned, if it destroys someone then it must be used and the facts can be sorted out later to fit the narrative.
The second category is the establishments all knowing reporter, usually a Cable News type, whose suave voices, calm demeanor and in your eye commentary, demands belief. Sheppard Smith of Fox News fits this category, as does CNN’s Wolf Blitzer (Wolfgang Lightening), Anderson Cooper and Rachael Madcow. Every network has them. Most are laughable in the display of their hysterical anti-Trump dysfunction, visible for all to see; but, they don’t see.
I’ve long suspected Sheppard Smith was a crypto-lefty, certainly a #NeverTrumper, but he was always clever enough to appear “fair and balanced“ until a Trump story comes up and then all pretense is swept aside. Wolf Blitzer gets breathless when trying to connivence us that some CNN manufactured story of Trumps association with the evil Russians has a hidden element in it that will make it true. Their viewership numbers, by the way, have dropped below the Rocky and Bullwinkle levels on MeTv. That’s why Frostbite Falls, Mn. should be on their bus tour.
I’m getting weary of this constant fake news reporting that pounds at us daily. So are others apparently, which would explain the dropping viewership numbers of most major cable news channels. For me, the OAN network is replacing Fox news as my go to choice but, the Colbert Report will never get my vote. Like the fake news reporters, he’s starting to believe his own copy and that’s dangerous. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, y’all git out tha’r and help educate them tha’r reporters.
Official Trout Festival of Georgia Returns to Celebrate Trout Fishing in the Trout Capital of Georgia (Jan. 11, 2017)
BLUE RIDGE, GA – The official Trout Festival of Georgia returns to Blue Ridge this spring when thousands of outdoors enthusiasts descend upon Georgia’s top trout-fishing destination – Fannin County, the Trout Capital of Georgia – to benefit cold-water education, service, conservation and recreation in North Georgia via the mission of Blue Ridge Mountain Trout Unlimited Chapter 696. “The Festival is built around the fact that Fannin County has become a trout-fishing destination for fishermen from all over the nation,” says House Speaker David Ralston (representative, 7th District) about the Blue Ridge Trout Festival & Outdoor Adventures event, April 28-29, in Blue Ridge, Georgia. In 2016 Ralston led the effort behind House Resolution 1039 that gave the Festival its official status when the declaration was passed by the Georgia Legislature.
