Another Conservative Point of View at this Thanksgiving Time

Opinion, Politics
  Written And Submitted By: George McCellan

Greetings all and a Happy Thanksgiving to each and everyone. It may be our last as the Democrats have successfully managed to attack and close down reduce or postpone all our national holidays in the name of fear.

What follows below is a post from another conservative forum that needs to be shared, especially by Georgian voters.  It is one woman’s opinion on Georgia politics, but it reads  as though it probably has a solid basis and may be right on the money.  
Wake-up call in Georgia

Let’s be clear. I am a Floridian. If you had asked me a month ago who the Georgia Senators were, I would have looked at you blankly and asked why should I care? Well, a month has changed a lot in the political landscape of our country. Today, our government as we know it is under attack and whether we remain a constitutional republic where people are responsible for themselves or we spin off into some sort of semi-socialist state where wealth is redistributed through increased taxes and social controls and big brother is responsible for us is the open question. Make no mistake, this attack on our country is very well-coordinated and strategic and it is working better than their leadership’s wildest dreams.

I know what I am going to say will be very unpopular to many Trumpers. I will begin by saying that I am and ever will be a bold and active supporter of our 45th President. However, someone has to speak the truth to us. So, this is my truth to you.

I just returned from a three-day trip to Georgia to canvass for their two Senators, Perdue and Loeffler. My two girlfriends and I canvassed Northwest Fulton county, in the area of Sandy Springs and Roswell. These two areas are very wealthy. The homes are worth millions of dollars and they surround the Cherokee Country Club, voted the 22nd best country club in the country. What we found was a nondiverse population that was mostly white and over an estimated age of 50 with many clearly in their 70’s. Of those who answered the door, the split between Republican and Democrat was about 60:40 as was to be expected according to https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/republicans-democrats-cities/

In addition, as we have seen in Florida canvassing, the Republican voters were cautious to express their voting views while the Democrats often expressed their views angrily and aggressively. Two Democrat voters told me that I was trespassing and threatened to call the police and two others continued screaming at one of our group even when she had left their property. Bottom line, this area appears to have voted about the same as it had voted in the last several elections. Our job was simply to get out the Republican vote in this area and I think we accomplished our small part of that.

The real story here is not the get out the vote campaign for the mostly white suburban voters who reliably turn out to vote, but the explosion of voter registration and get out the vote campaigns in African American and Latinx communities in downtown and suburban Atlanta and for that matter in Georgia. While the Republicans were encouraging their base to get out and vote, the Democrats have been actively expanding their base through outreach to their natural constituencies and others. They have been registering African Americans and Latinx and encouraging and supporting their vote through frequent and consistent messaging, engaging voters early, and investing aggressively. Historically low turnout voters in Georgia have been WOKE by the Georgia Democrat Party and now have consistently turned out to vote in the mid-term election, the gubernatorial election, and now in the 2020 Presidential election in higher and higher numbers.

The results are clear, Joe Biden won 500,000 more votes in Georgia then Hillary Clinton did in 2016. The old adage that “if there is a low voter turnout, the Republicans win and if there is a high voter turnout, the Democrats win, is alive and well. The Democrats and specifically Stacy Abrams in her “The Abrams Playbook, the Strategy and Path to Victory in 2020” have outplayed the Republican Party of Georgia. https://fairfight.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/TheAbramsPlaybook.pdf

Make no mistake, the Abrams Playbook is in full force now in Georgia. One house that I canvassed thought I was a Democrat and told me in no uncertain terms that she had everything she needed and that she was all set to vote in the upcoming election. Clearly, she had been handled by a Democrat operative and “assisted” in her voting plan before I showed up. This systematic, aggressive, and strategic outreach to Democrat voters, Democrat leaning voters who were formerly not likely to vote, and Democrat leaning voters that were previously not registered is why Georgia has turned blue. The race for the Senate will be an all-out sprint. Perdue may pull it off this year, but if Republican messaging and strategies do not change, Georgia will be reliably blue into the future.

What this portends for the rest of this country is clear. The Democrats have out thought, out strategized, and out organized the Republican Party across the country. They have broadened their base, expanded registration of unlikely voters, have frequently encouraged and prepped their voters, lobbied and changed legislation to support their voters, and have mobilized a large and growing voter block. If the Republicans do not make drastic changes, broaden their message and their base, and pay attention to legislation that benefits one side and not the other, they will continue to lose in larger and larger numbers.

Dear President Trump,

I’ve been a loyal supporter since you earned the Republican nomination for President! I fought for you on social media, through letters to news outlets, and at the ballot box! I’m a 71 year old retired teacher from the state of GA! I’ve been a life long Republican, never missed voting in an election, and, other than Reagan, have never respected, never defended, never adored a President as much as I have you! You have truly been THE President of my lifetime, achieved more in a short period of time, upheld your promises and actually did make this country GREAT AGAIN, especially after the debacle we lived through for 8 years under the Obama Administration. Obama could have been a great President….he actually could have made this country better for minorites, especially blacks! Instead, he divided us across every demographic in this country: white vs. black; rich vs. poor; men vs. woman; Muslim vs. Christian; etc. He was the ultimate “Divider-in-Chief”!

You, sir, were the answer to our prayers! You’ve fought for us under the most horrendous of circumstances! I’m not sure how you had the strengh and courage to face the hatred of Democrats, media, never-Trumpers every day and still accomplished what you did! You’ve shown us how to love this country, how to be patriots, how to defend our very freedoms! That will be gone if Biden should prevail! Joe Biden is an empty suit being run by a Progressive cabal! He will never be able to make a decision-he doesn’t now!

Please, Mr. President, don’t give up this fight! We can’t afford to turn our children and grandchildren over to a fake Biden Administration that will be run by the likes of ignorant AOC, hateful Nancy Pelosi, Communist Bernie Sanders, spiteful Chuck Schumer-the list goes on. These are the people now pulling Biden’s puppet strings! These are the people trying to steal this election from the legitimate voters in this country! These are the people who want to take away our 1st and 2nd amendment rights! These are the people who, instead of thanking GOD for this country, want to tear it down! We have to fight! You have to fight!

There is no doubt in the minds of millions, many millions, that YOU are the legitimately elected President for a second term-NOTHING (pre-election or election night) about calling Biden the President-elect adds up! I pray every night for GOD’S mercy on this country! I pray that the FRAUD, perpetrated by the       Democrats and media upon American voters, be uncovered!  I pray, sir, for you and your outstanding family! Keep up the fight for this great nation! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Love and respect,

Cindy Glueckert

Good Advice! Never, Ever Give Up!

Politics

Written And Submitted By: George McClellan

 

I’m very impressed that President Trump is strictly following Hillary Clinton’s advice to Joe  Biden: “Never, ever concede.” That’s very good advice indeed! The last trick in their bag, at  least for this election, is to declare victory, ensconce Joe Biden in a pretend Presidential Office  and demand all the trappings attendant to a peaceful transition of power, something the  Democrats never did for Trump. Why should President Trump concede when voting frauds are  being revealed, whistleblowers are coming forward to give sworn testimony and the matter is  not even closely settled? 

We’re still faced with a conundrum. Biden is a pathological liar. So is the media! He doesn’t  know what he’s talking about, can’t remember his cues on the teleprompter and is in short,  Incapable of leading. That whole idea of Joe leading anything is a joke!  

No thanks to the media for hiding the stories that should be important to voters, but it can’t be  denied, Joe Biden is corrupt! We all know it, he said so himself! He’s also compromised as an  Agent of Influence for the Chinese Communist Party and yet he pretends to have integrity. His  long career in politics taught Joe how to enrich himself and his family without getting caught. A  

serial plagiarizer unable to think on his feet or write his own thoughts at his desk and incapable  of formulating a coherent sentence, Democrats demand that Americans accept him as their  leader even in the face of massive voter fraud investigations. Trump should not concede at all!  

History is filled with stories of flawed hero’s coming at the right time to end disasters and Trump  is one of them because after the economic failures of eight years of Obama, Trumps miracle  leadership accomplished more in four years than any other Party did in eight or ten or twenty  years! Trumps business policies created a booming economy, moving all Americans of all races  toward better jobs and prosperity. He’s trashed the socialists economic policies of our past  administration, changed environmental laws to help Americans prosper and returned Americas  military to a world force to be reckoned with. 

As I have said before I have no grief with a Billionaire who becomes President. Where I take  umbrage is when a stupid politician becomes a millionaire and no one (media) notices. Joe’s  dull career specialized in graft and corruption to enrich himself and his family.  

If we listened to and accepted what the media would have us believe, it’s a sure bet that if  voters were told to get into boxcars to be taken to virus protection camps, most Biden voters  would rush to get in line. “Oh, Save us Joe!” Then there’s the global warming nonsense. Do we  imagine the rest of the world ready to save the planet from evil carbon? No, but the rest of the  world has exempted China and India from carbon footprint controls! They can continue their  fossil fuel burning right along with the 400 more or less, active volcanoes spewing toxins into  our atmosphere but, wicked America needs to do more to reduce carbon pollution. 

Americas biggest enemy is not Trump defending his Presidency from Democrat theft but it’s the  Communist Democrat party who are the thieves and our enemy! If Joe doesn’t win, anarchists  groups like BLM and Antifa promise massive violent demonstrations across the country. If states  enact their military options to defend the Constitution and Americans from evil, the National  Guard will have to crush ’em. If official State governments fail to act because they are  Communist run, then Americans will turn to an age old technique called vigilantism to stem the  tide. If anarchy is not stopped, that could portend the death knell on our Republic. Remember, freedom is the goal the Constitution is the way. Now, go get en! (15Nov20)

Short Takes – Who Knows What Evil Lurks in the Hearts of Man?

Opinion, Politics

Written by: George McClellan

Somehow the explosive revelations implicating the Biden Clan in consorting with our Chinese enemies and Ukrainian Oligarchs, simply to enrich their own family coffers, all ignored by the main stream media, the Democrats propaganda machine, apart from the exposure of pure avarice and reckless deep state criminality, opens up other interesting questions. 

 

Laughingly, the term “Big Guy” apparently meant to be Joe Biden, Vice-President under Barak Obama and father of the terms author, Hunter Biden, comes off as a bigger scoundrel than the simple appellations of “Sleepy Joe,” or “Plugs” would suggest. Is Joe acting? He’s already wealthy beyond his wildest expectations serving forty-seven years as a deep state politician. Is he taking one for the team to get Kamala Harris in place to complete Obama’s fundamental change of America? Looks like it! After all, Joe is getting old, feeble and can probably count the years he has left on one hand, win or lose.

 

But, is Joe Biden the “Big Guy,” really the “Kingfish” of a sinister crime family? Hummn?  By all appearances it would seem so! The Mafia has nothing on this guy’s ‘white collar’ money making skills except the Mafia has cooler names like “Dons, Godfather, Capo’s and best of all, Capo de tutti Capo!”  If Joe had even a smidgen of Italian blood in his veins he’d be in prison by now. 

 

The Mafia was thoroughly compromised by years of FBI wire tapes, intercepts and snitches. That raises the question, how much have they collected on Sleepy Joe over the years?  Like the “Shadow” of crime fighting radio fame years ago, listeners were reminded “The weed of Crime bears bitter fruit. Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow does.”  So did the FBI, once! J. Edgar Hoover saw to that because he knew what avarice made of fresh bright-eyed politician’s in the Washington DC Swamp. Hoover kept secret records of every politician who left him a trail. He knew their schemes, their paramours, their travels and their secret associates and when a politician was going astray, he quietly brought their activities to a close. 

 

In the 1940s and after, Hoovers FBI were also looking for spies, Germans, then later Soviets, including American politicians and government workers like Alger Hiss. Today’s FBI it would seem, by the almost forgotten evidence of the failed coup attempt against President Trump, no longer keeps a close eye on errant politicians but seem to have realigned their talents to protect those evil politicians, like Hillary Clinton, by justifying her crimes because she lacked intent. 

 

A lost laptop filled with compromising evidence implicating Biden’s family cabal, has apparently been in the FBI’s hands since December 2019. That fact is now common knowledge. What have they been doing with it? One hopes they found in it a treasure trove of Biden’s criminal bribery and money laundering schemes, a sure fire way to derail Biden’s run for President; or leads that compromise Chinese (CCP) espionage activities. In any event, that wasn’t their intent because the election is upon us and Democrat Politicians will scream foul calling it another Russian plot to affect the 2020 election to support Trump. 

 

Well, yes, we certainly hope so! Now, comes a former associate of Hunter Biden with physical evidence and testimony further implicating the former VP as deeply involved in promoting bribery, money laundering and favoritism to the Chinese Communist Party. Will the witness survive? Will Joe’s activities count as espionage? Will we see arrests made? Will we see justice? Don’t count on it!  If the Democrats win this election, this thing will go away, for ever! 

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em! (24Oct20)

Voting is Power

Opinion, Politics

Written and submitted by: Gilmer GOP – Reece Sanford

On November 3 rd , 2020, Americans will go to the polls to vote for the President of the United States.
Election Day is an event that has occurred every four years in our nation since the first Presidential
election in the winter of 1788-1789. Through world wars, pandemics, civil unrest, recessions,
depressions, and even the Civil War, Americans have gone to the polls every four years to elect a
national leader. After so many elections, it might be easy to view this event as routine as the changing of
the seasons. However, we should not take the right to vote for granted. Our Founding Fathers revolted
over “taxation without representation.” They understood the importance of having influence over those
who governed them. Throughout time and history, millions, perhaps billions, of people have not had a
say in their government. But in America, every citizen regardless of gender, race, religion, education, or
income has a right to select their representatives. This right should not be taken lightly. As the human
rights activist Loung Ung once said, “Voting is not only our right – it is our power.”

This summer I read “Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty” by Daron
Acemoglu and James A. Robinson. The book theorizes that a nation is on the path to failure when its
political institutions fail to include large groups of the nation’s people. When the politics of the nation
are controlled by the elite, then inevitably the economic institutions will eventually cater to the elite at
the expense of those who are excluded from the nation’s politics. When politics exclude the average
person, eventually the elite, whether they be nobles or simply bureaucrats, will use their power to take
economic resources from the common man. This taking is called economic extraction. Economic
extraction has played out time and time again throughout history. Today, the US is exceptional because
it has been the most politically inclusive nation in the history of the world. As time has passed, the
nation has become more and more inclusive. When people are permitted to participate in their nation’s
politics, they will find themselves able to succeed economically. If you can count on the government to
protect your property rights, you can have confidence to take economic risks. This form of government
is why the US has found so much economic success. We are truly blessed to live in a nation like America.

While everyone has a right to vote in America, not everyone exercises that right. A vote is a horrible
thing to waste. A vote gives you a voice, but when you choose not to vote, you choose to silence
yourself. History has shown how the powerful can abuse the voiceless. Our Founding Fathers revolted
from a nation with a poor history of protecting the weak from the powerful. For centuries, English
peasants were the majority population, but they found themselves voiceless and defenseless against the
powerful English royals and nobles. The common people suffered under centuries of high taxes and
flimsy at best property rights. Without a doubt, English peasants suffered from economic extraction.
This system was forced upon them by a government empowered by force, not democracy. These people
would have held the right to vote in great esteem, but their political system was not inclusive. If millions
of people choose not to vote, our political systems become exclusive by choice. If you do not vote, you
are unable to ensure that your elected officials represent your best interests. If this happens, you too
could experience economic extraction.

If elected, Joe Biden and the Democrats will practice economic extraction and make our political system
less inclusive. Mr. Biden’s economic plan calls for a radical increase in corporate taxes and dividend
taxes. In many cases, the combined effect will be the government laying claim to 56 cents of a dollar of
profit earned. You need to understand that taxation is not creation. New money is not created when the
government taxes. They are simply taking a dollar from your pocket and placing it in their pocket. They
do this because they believe they can spend that dollar more efficiently than you can. This is economic
extraction.

The Democrats will not stop at economic extraction. They will move to practice political exclusion. For
years, Democrats have expressed their desire to abolish the Electoral College in favor of a nationwide
popular vote. Our Founding Fathers opposed a nationwide popular vote because they understood that
the Electoral College was the only way to protect the voice of citizens in small town America. If a
nationwide popular vote determined the President, a candidate could strictly campaign to the major
population centers in New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Seattle, and San Diego. The
population is so large in these cities that the people in these metropolises could determine an election
on their own. If this were the case, politicians would cater to these communities and ignore the needs of
small towns across the country. If the Electoral College were abolished, small town America would lose
its voice. If small town America lost its voice, how much more economic extraction would we face?

This election is very important. Do not think that you are just one person in a nation of 329 million
people. Your one vote has more value than you think. In America, we effectively do not have a national
Presidential election. Truly, the Electoral College is the sum of 50 statewide elections. Electoral votes
represent points earned across 50 statewide elections. Realizing this, Georgia’s conservatives must focus
on the outcome in Georgia. We cannot fall into the trap of believing that Georgia is a lock for President
Trump. For the past decade, Georgia’s elections have been trending in the wrong direction for
Republicans. Early in the 2010s, Republicans could count on 53% of the vote in Georgia. Nathan Deal
(2010 and 2014), Mitt Romney (2012), and David Perdue (2014) all won 53% of the vote across the State
of Georgia. This was a sharp drop off from the 2006 Governor’s race where Sonny Perdue won 58% of
the vote. By 2016, the gap had closed even more. Four years ago, President Trump won Georgia with
only 50.4% of the vote. In the 2018 Governor’s race, the election was even closer. Brian Kemp won the
Governor’s Mansion with only 50.2% of the vote, with a winning margin of just 54,723 votes. In Gilmer,
Fannin, Pickens, Dawson, Lumpkin, and Union Counties alone, Governor Kemp received 60,117 votes. In
each of these counties, he received at least 79% of votes cast. Kemp won similar amounts of the vote
throughout the counties that make up the 9 th and 14 th Congressional districts – the rural north Georgia
districts. Conversely, Fulton and Dekalb Counties alone cast a combined 567,991 votes for Stacey
Abrams representing 30% of her total votes. To overcome the Atlanta vote and prevent the Democrats
from overtaking Georgia, it is going to take the combined efforts of every small town in this state.

Sadly, Georgia has become a battleground state. If people in rural north Georgia stay at home, Georgia
is an attainable victory for any Democrat. This year’s election is projected to be very close. If President
Trump loses the Peach State, Georgia’s sixteen electoral college votes very well could be the reason he
loses the election. Moreover, we have two US Senate seats currently held by Republicans up for election
this year. Republicans have a slim majority in the US Senate but losing the two Georgia seats could hand
the Senate to the Democrats. It is possible that the State of Georgia could hand control of the White
House and the US Senate to the Democrats. North Georgia, we cannot let that happen.
It is my hope that you understand how important it is that you vote this year. You do not need to stop
there though. Once you vote, you need to make sure your friends and family vote. North Georgia
conservatives need to realize that a Republican victory in Georgia is no longer a given. Do not assume
everyone votes. We must be more active as our counties could very well decide who governs our
country for the next four years. Our community must have a strong voter turnout. Early voting will last
until October 30 th . Saturday voting is on October 24 th . If you would like to vote by mail, you must apply
for your ballot by October 30 th . This should be done as soon as possible and can be done online or
through the mail. Finally, in person voting on Election Day will take place on November 3 rd from 7 AM to
7 PM at your assigned polling station. To find your polling station, please visit  mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do.

Please share this information with your friends. Voter turnout in our community could determine this election.
The Gilmer County Republican Party is ready and willing to help you feel comfortable voting this year. Should
you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the party through our website or Facebook page.
This year, our nation is given a choice between the party of freedom and the party of economic
extraction. Elections are determined by those who show up. North Georgia, can we count on you to
show up for Republicans this fall? God Bless!

Short Takes – Two Weeks

Opinion, Politics

Written and Submitted By: George McClellen

 

Americans have been conned by the outrageous lies of Democrats. Within two weeks America will know if it will remain the beacon of hope for all people or will we slide into the abyss of third world violence, totalitarism and slavery. True Americans are not going to allow Democrats with their mail in ballot schemes to ruin our country. Americans will not accept demented Joe Biden who would soon die, leaving Marxist Kamala Harris as President. No one wanted her! 

 

Americas accepted values of civility were inexorably altered in Minneapolis, Mn, when Floyd George, a black two-bit thief, robber, fraudster and drug user, died at police hands while being arrested for passing a counterfeit twenty. Democrats saw an opportunity and went crazy elevating this thug to Saintly status, eulogizing  his worthless life in funerals in three different cities. The “pity show” for poor Floyd George went on for days and gullible Americans, thinking they could assuage their whiteness, sent in thousands of dollars to a cadre of Marxist revolutionaries, mostly white morons, whose aim is to overthrow the United States of America and replace it with fascism.

 

What happens then? Fascism of course!  We’ve already experienced multiple robberies and street violence to show respect and deep grief for the unlamented George. Violence swept the US and then went world wide into a planed and coordinated attack against western values. Nobody was left untouched. Black as well as white businesses were looted and burned, counter protests were quickly shut down with violence by Antifa’s, Police ordered to stand down and streets cordoned off from fire and medical aid and, the murders of eighty-nine policemen.

 

The most useless presidential candidate ever to take the field, Joe Biden, fell to his knees and wept. Whose got a violin? I’ll turn the weepy pages. So did the wicked old lady of the House, and her silly looking cohorts of Progressive sympathizers, wearing bits of African cloth around their necks, presumably to show solidarity with poor George Floyd. All lies!

 

Americans are beyond reasoning with these people. They lie! It’s in their DNA and they cannot stop themselves. They are products of the teachings of now long dead Socialists like John Dewey, Betty Friedan. William James, Alfred Kinsey, Aldous Huxley Benjamin Bloom, B.F.  Skinner, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes, Saul Alinsky, Sigmund Freud, Margaret Sanger, Roger Baldwin and many others whose wicked philosophies are borne out on our streets today.

 

Joe Biden is a cannon ball on a pitching deck for Democrats. Even with a Teleprompter and aides standing at his elbow, he can’t get it right. He refuses to answer questions about his son, Hunter Biden’s wealthy involvement with both the Ukraine and China; denies having even consulted with Hunter on any of these issues and even in the face of irrefutable evidence, denies any wrong doing.

 

Democrats are totally corrupt! Everything to them is politics for power and they’ll sign on with the devil to get it. Speaking of which, lurking in the wings is China’s Emperor Ji jingping, aided and abetted by Hunter Biden who sold his fathers influence as VP to Americas enemies for millions. 

This is the epitome of the Deep State Swamp that president Trump has promised to drain. They are fighting back with lies, lies and more lies and yet, we see no movement in the Halls of Justice to bring these creatures to book! We’re two weeks away from a reckoning. If they win, Joe and Hunter may be the richest men in America, lackeys to Emperor Ji Jingping.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get angry! (18Oct20)

Short Takes – “There is No Such Uncertainty as a Sure Thing”

Opinion

written by: George McClellan

 

The title quote is attributed to the revered Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759-1796)! The truth of his statement has been borne out multiple time since his day, encompassing the defeat of the Axis in WWII and, no more obviously than the 2016 presidential election when all the poll pundents, the expert media prognosticators and Democrat hangers-on predicted with absolute certainty that America would be blessed with a Hillary Clinton presidency. “Oh, Joy, Rapture!” The smartest woman in the world to become Americas first woman president & etc, Give us a break!

 

The uncertainty then was wondering why Democrats would support the worlds smartest woman Hillary Clinton, as a candidate while under investigation by the FBI for multiple felonies, and believing the FBI, DoJ, CIA & IRS were fair and honest, believed in the Constitution and would send the miscreant to jail. Then, they let the rat out of the trap and with the certainty of fanatic devotees to Beelzebub, that she would never see the inside of a prison except possibly to visit Comey, Brennan, McCabe and Strzok, they sought to resurrect their version of the Communist Manifesto yet again in the sure and certain hope their corrupt deep state activities would fade away and they could resume their coup against America’s President. It hasn’t happened yet!

 

Four years later we’re faced with that exact same uncertainty, oh, not from Trump supporters, flyover country deplorable’s, prospering Americans of African descent or working Latinos, but from Democrats who have gone into melt down wondering how they could have possibly put up the weakest nincompoop in the Democrat Party as their candidate against a virtual eating machine of incompetent performers, Donald Trump who is prepared to devour their whole scheme and candidate too! What’s now certain is to win they’re going to have to cheat and   they are good at it!

 

It’s not difficult to guess what the Democrats have in mind to steal the presidency from the most successful political leader since General George Washington, and turn America into a slobbering country of social misfits whose survival depends on what the State gives ’em! It’s already started with the mail in ballots. How does that work and still ensure honesty? I don’t know.  Ask a Democrat. I do know this. While on our recent vacation trip to Wyoming, we met a vacationer from Texas who told us he had already received, unsolicited, four mail in ballots from Ohio and two from Illinois, states he has never visited let alone lived in! He thought he would fill ’em all in for Trump and send ’em back like a good voter would.

Conservatives do have a big problem. We’re still attached to the Republican party and while the Democrat party doesn’t really know what it is or wants with contending factions pushing any moderates to the far left, the Republicans still have RiNO’s and anti-Trumpers sitting on their hands hoping Trump will fail and they are not seen as helping the Marxists in that failure. Sen. Susan Collins, (R-Ma) is as flakey as they come and desperately needs to be replaced, but now Conservatives are almost forced into helping her win another term as a RiNO moderate just to keep the GOP’s senate count above 50%. And if she does win there is still no certainty that she even recognizes the dangers facing our Constitutional Republic.  Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski is another goofball RiNO that has to go, sooner rather than later, but right now, alas, she’s a Senate Republican vote if she knows how to use it. If clueless Joe is the best they got, and he wins, we’re all in trouble. If you want a hint on Joe’s oncoming dementia, watch this recent video for a while: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnafho4KMiQ&feature=youtu.be. Then, remember who’s behind him, the first drop-out of the Democrat primary, super marxist Kamala Harris.  Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em?

BLM and the Coming Danger

Opinion

By stealth and design, America, over the past five decades has allowed itself to be enveloped in the soothing fog of socialism where its corrosive philosophy has been allowed to incubate in our public schools until ultimately, it has let loose the legions of corrosive thinking cretins, BLM’s, now attacking and burning our towns and cities, indeed our Americanism disguised as peaceful protesters but, anarchists all. The scary thing is that these people are for most part, Americans.

 

I am slightly confused. I always thought that BLM identified the Bureau of Land Management, a government quasi law enforcement entity to protect Americas wide open spaces and Indian reservations. I was alarmed when BLM got directly involved against private enterprise when they assumed a Nevada rancher, the Bundy family, were in violation of some land use rules empowering them, the BLM, to seize Bundy’s cattle without due process. This occurred under a Democrat government when then House Speaker Harry Reid, wanted the land Bundy used for cattle grazing to sell to a renewable energy company to install solar collectors. That constituted an Executive Action requiring a legal punishment, (theft of Bundy’s cattle), an unconstitutional act, unless they got away with it. They didn’t, and that part of the story died. Also quickly ignored was the singular fact that armed American citizens confronted the BLM usurpers and prevailed.

 

In any event, we are now confronted with a different BLM, hoards of black clad young, mostly white Americans, organized or not, volunteering for political reasons or for pay, to support the BLM group of self styled and admitted Marxists who are determined to bring America down. 

 

As this lot runs around city streets and cafes attempting to humiliate dining patrons, it is more an  expression of Maoism than Marxism. In any event, their mission is the same, destroy America. A shocking video interview of a young white male with a plastic face shield truthfully answering the interviewer’s questions, admitted that capitalism had to be overthrown and replaced by  socialism. By his attitude he thought it was an event sure to happen. Where did he get such anti-American ideas? From the revisionists of American history, in the Common Core syllabus indoctrinating its neophytes about how rotten America has been to people of color, to the poor and the undocumented immigrants swarming here for a better life, free of charge of course! 

 

America’s long and successful exercise in representative government, where decorum between contending ideas, (except for the Civil War period), even with those that clearly flouted the US Constitution, were argued out in the public domaine with a basically honest media reporting the results, not trying to make them. All that has been washed away with the corrupting marriage between commerce and government, the source of the vast pot of easy cash endlessly flowing to buy the votes of politicians. That’s one step away from Fascism, Mussolini’s idea that one can keep his business so long as his business produces what government tells him to produce. 

 

Nobody could seriously believe that Joe Biden is up 16 points over Donald Trump except CNN who said so. That’s a fear inducing tactic! What is happening is a post Trump Leftist scheme to give us two choices in what government, we will have, Fascism or Communism, aka: Socialism. To Democrats, it really makes no difference because both concepts are Far Left and will only survives under the heel of Totalitarian, protected by a police state. 

 

Mostly, Americans now live comfortably adjusting to deflation and inflation, lower interests rates and affordable fuel and food prices. That comfort could soon end and Conservative Americans must be prepared for two choices, give in or water the roots of the Liberty Tree. 

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, let’s get awesome! (06Oct20)

Short Takes – A Debate or a Free For all?

Opinion

Written and Submitted by: George McClellan

To start off with, I couldn’t tell if I was watching a found copy of a lost Marx Brothers film or a cartoon rerun of Elmer Fudd chasing that wascally wabbit!  With that, I’ll admit I’m totally for Donald Trump. I’ve witnessed the miracle of his take no prisoners leadership of Americas prosperity and economic growth; how he handles foreign policy to Americas favor, his restoration of our military and his savvy business approach to management of the dysfunctional corrupt government he inherited and the efforts of elements of that corrupt government to pull him down. That includes Joe Biden. The first debate was really on trivial matters already in the public domain. It was in fact, a waste of time.

 

Having said that, a couple of points also need to be made. First, I wondered why Trump even bothered to debate Joe Biden because Joe’s history of gaffs, misstatements, false innuendos political failures, self-enrichment and outright lies, as he so cunningly demonstrated in last nights debate, should have rendered any such debate mute and not worth sparing over. We all already know what the issues are and the position of both candidates on them. The best advice ever given to me was never to argue with an idiot because idiot will bring you down to his level and beat you to death with his experience. Didn’t happen last night though.

 

The Leftist media will give Joe high marks for standing up to and “trashing” Donald Trump, and claim that Trump was still lying. Well, that might have worked once but most folks today have caught on to the MSM and don’t believe ’em anymore. Besides, every possible issue that could be debated was spit out onto that stage last night. 

 

The Left hates Donald Trump because he’s ruined their gig!  Joe hotly claimed he was “the Democrat Party,” not Bernie Sanders or AOC, and even raised his voice to emphasize the point, He denied that he supported AOC and her Green New Deal, when he’s on record for doing exactly that. Leave it to good ol’ Joe to bring mediocrity to a new low level of mendacity.

 

What did surprise me was that Joe even consented to debate but on issues only important to the Left! Nobody cares about global warming or the US rejoining the Paris Climate Accords because everybody now knows that the Paris Accords were nothing more that a New World Order scam to fleece Western countries, especially the US, out of trillions of dollars to support, you guessed it, the new world order. 

 

Speaking of global warming, Trump was correct when he said the US is the cleanest country in the world for low carbon emissions, pointing out China, India and other countries were major contributors of green house gas emissions. I was disappointed that Trump did not include the four hundred, more or less, active volcanos around the world spewing their toxic poisons into the atmosphere every minute, and dismissing outright the whole concept of human accountability as unscientific nonsense.

 

Of course the timing of Trumps latest Supreme Court pick took some fire but that didn’t last long because, as Trump said, he was President and, to quote a recent past President, Barak Obama: “Elections count. I won, you lost.”  Biden’s response was that the American People should have a voice in a SCOTUS nomination. Well, they did, in 2016! End of story.

 

I was especially amused when Joe tried to capture Trumps economic miracle as his own by claiming the Obama-Biden administration left a thriving economy for Donald Trump when we all know the Obama-Biden economy was moribund with slow to nearly non-existent growth, high black and Latino unemployment and lost jobs going abroad. 

 

Other issues of importance to the Left were Trumps Tax returns. He’s under audit all the time and pay’s taxes in the millions. For me, I’m not worried about a billionaire becoming President, I worry about how a mere politician enters Congress and becomes a millionaire. Nobody asked Joe if the paid his taxes on his Ukraine investment or on Hunter Biden’s billions from China. Joe got right defensive over Trump bringing up the matter of his corrupt kid, but, it had to be asked. 

 

Trump also started the revitalization of the military including cancelling out Obama’s scheme to re-educate white Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airman about the unhealthy effect of their racism because of their white privilege. OMG!

 

In short, Joe Biden rarely answered a direct question but framed his answers in the tedious talking points we hear daily. Remarkably Joe would not utter the words Law and Order. If he did, AOC would cast a spell on him causing his tongue to shrivel up and fall out. 

 

Well, it was a good show I suppose. The suave Mr. Chris Wallace of Fox News, managed to maintain some control but not decorum. Trump isn’t a decorum man. Hit him and he hits back! Lie about him and he’ll correct the offender then and there. It was a Marx Brothers or the Three Stooges show, but it was entertaining. Take your pick!

 

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em! (29Sep20)

 

I am Black, and I am a Democrat, But, “I Ain’t” Voting for Joe Biden This November 

Letters to Editor, Opinion

Written and Submitted By State Representative Vernon Jones (D-Lithonia)

(976 words)

             Since that day in May when I announced I would support Donald Trump for president, my motives have been questioned, my integrity assailed and even my intelligence challenged.  That is okay. I am a lifelong Democrat, but I am also a Black man, the son of a World War II veteran and a proud American.

In recent weeks, there have been absurd calls to defund and disband police departments across the country by Democrats in response to the unjust murder of George Floyd. These are extreme calls that will only lead to more pain and suffering in our most vulnerable communities.

As the former chief executive officer of DeKalb County, Georgia, I have had to manage one of the largest police departments in the state of Georgia. I have had the experience of dealing with police shootings and comforting the families of victims. But, at the same time, I have also had the experience of losing two black police officers. I have had to comfort their families in the middle of the night and console their young children. I know firsthand when others are running away from chaos, police officers are running into the fight to protect and serve.

President Trump was sickened by the death of George Floyd and is fully committed to ensuring that he will not have died in vain. The president has taken a commonsense approach to heal our nation. President Trump made it clear that he will protect all Americans, serve as an ally to peaceful protestors and always uphold law and order.

However, the protestors were determined to sow chaos and destruction all in the name of racial equality. Listen, during my first legislative session in the Georgia House of Representatives in 1993, I filed the first bill in my career to remove the Confederate battle emblem from the state flag. But, I also understand the preservation of our history, including the good and the bad, and still, I bow to no one in my advocacy for the Black community.

But unlike other Washington politicians, this president actually backed up his words with actions. He signed an executive order on police reform, taking steps to build a better bridge between law enforcement men and women and their communities.

This landmark executive order encourages police to implement best practices to protect the people they serve. It sets the highest professional standards for law enforcement officers, while promoting peace and equality for all Americans. Under the order, the Trump administration will now prioritize federal grants from the U.S. Department of Justice to police departments that meet these high standards. Additionally, the order pushes forward the creation of a national database of police misconduct. This database will root out bad cops and help create accountability between police agencies.

In delivering his remarks last week, President Trump accomplished more in 40 minutes than Joe Biden has in 40 plus years. Where were Joe Biden and the previous administration for eight years in the White House on this issue? I will tell you: they were absent in unifying this country.

The Black unemployment rate under former Vice President Biden and the previous administration averaged a horrific 12.8 percent. The number of Black Americans in poverty barely fell during Biden’s administration, going down by just 145,000 over eight years.

By comparison, more than double that number, 350,000 Black Americans, were lifted out of poverty during just the first two years of the Trump administration.

Even before that, where was Biden for 36 years in the U.S. Senate on this issue? I will tell you: he was too busy shouting “my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle.” That racial jungle he was referring to includes Black and brown Americans like me. Right now, President Trump is being defined as a racist by the media, when in reality Joe Biden is the full-blooded bigot.

Do not take my word for it, take then-Senator Joe Biden’s own words for it: “The truth is, every major crime bill since 1976 that’s come out of this Congress, every minor crime bill, has had the name of the Democratic senator from the State of Delaware: Joe Biden.” Now that Joe Biden is running for president in a “woke” Democratic Party in 2020, he is attempting to sweep his racist legacy under the rug. We cannot let him.

Joe Biden is directly responsible for the mass incarceration policies of the 1980s and 1990s, which decimated the Black community. Biden authored the 1994 Crime Bill, which imposed mandatory minimum sentences, disproportionately putting hundreds of thousands of young Black men in prison.

President Trump has worked to undo injustices within our criminal justice system.  He signed the Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person Act, or the “First Step Act,” which is the first major reform to our criminal justice system in a decade. Thanks to the president’s leadership on this issue, our criminal justice system is fairer and our communities are safer.

As Black Americans, we need to be aware of the clear choice in front of us. Joe Biden has betrayed Black Americans throughout his career in Washington, D.C. President Trump has spent his 3.5 years in office fighting to improve the lives of Black Americans.

We cannot be tricked again. Democrats like Biden will conveniently appear in our neighborhoods and pander to us from now until November. Why? Because they only care about Black people during election years.

The leadership of Joe Biden and President Donald Trump is being revealed for us all to see. Joe Biden is divisive and ineffective. Meanwhile, President Trump is unifying, pragmatic and fearless.

My 90-year-old mother passed away in April 2020. I learned my independent views from her.

I am black, and I am a Democrat, but, “I ain’t” voting for Joe Biden this November.

 

Representative Vernon Jones represents the citizens of District 91, which includes portions of DeKalb and Rockdale counties. He was elected to the House of Representatives in 2016 and currently serves on the Energy, Utilities & Telecommunications, Human Relations & Aging and Transportation committees.

Distractions and Last Minute Additions : City of Blue Ridge

Citizens Speak, Downtown Blue Ridge, Opinion

My Dad always taught me, ‘keep your eye on the ball.’  I first learned that lesson at age six when he was hitting grounders to my older brother.  He gave me the glove and proceeded with my first lesson.  My Dad hit the ball, the ball hit a rock, ricocheted quickly and hit me hard in the throat, knocking the breath out of me.  Yes, I learned don’t be distracted, keep your eye on the ball so you will not be blindsided.  Recently, I have found the same truths in baseball can apply to our local government.

The City of Blue Ridge has embarked on a journey and, sadly, they did not allow citizens on the same ship of knowledge, but instead, put us in the rowboat they are towing behind.  Unfortunately, when you don’t know who’s driving the boat, you can’t see where you are going, you have no idea as to the challenges along the way and you have no clue what you will end up with, it’s difficult to sit back and enjoy the ride.

Generally, a government entity does not schedule public meetings on Election Day.  Why would anyone want to compete with such an important civic duty for every citizen?  They give us an opportunity to participate in government by voting for those we believe to be the best representatives, someone to make the best decisions in the day-to-day matters of managing government responsibilities.  Yet, Tuesday, June 9, the City has a regularly scheduled meeting which will be in direct competition with Election Day. You may know your candidates, but few have a clue what’s going on at City Hall.  I can’t help but wonder about this distraction.

What is so important that it needs to be addressed on Election Day?   Better question, why is annexation, currently the hottest topic in the County, not on the agenda?  The vote on annexation was tabled on May 19, but must be decided at some point.  I wish I had the answer, but it seems more like trying to catch the grounder on that rocky surface and no one has any idea which direction this issue is headed.

The annexation debacle started three years ago.  Apparently it was mostly discussions between a developer, the mayor and perhaps a few other staff.  Not until February of this year was the public made aware of the proposed annexation at a Town Hall regarding parking issues.  Suddenly, the evening Town Hall included annexation as part of the agenda.   Who would be distracted by a quick summary and vote on annexation when you came with a focus to discuss all the issues with downtown parking?

Why would the City add such an important proposal to a Town Hall on February 5, when they had a regularly scheduled meeting on February 11?  Most government entities utilize Town Halls for public discussion and concerns, not for matters of official business, like voting on an important issue.  The City did not even have a quorum present at the Town Hall to vote on the issue and had to have another member phone in her vote.  Unfortunately, without a quorum present, this vote is not in compliance with procedures.

At some point the Resolution for Annexation was forwarded to Speaker David Ralston and Senator Steve Gooch at the State level for approval.  The Mayor stated in a meeting that this method was the best way to handle this annexation, but it was also the method with the least public involvement.  Distract the people with the threat of paying to park in their own hometown, slip a critical matter on the agenda, get a quorum together, whether legal or not, approve it and straight to the State Capitol.  Just another ricocheted ball to try to field.

Fast forward to March and the County Commissioners all expressed their surprise and concern for the annexation, resulting in the Commission voting in opposition.  Next was another City Council meeting held on May 19 that was nothing short of watching a pro wrestling match on TV.  Where is Hulk Hogan when you need him because the citizens just got a body slam with the information shared at that meeting.

The saving grace from that Council meeting was two members pushing for public input via a Town Hall that was held June 1.  There were no distractions at that meeting as citizens were allowed to share their perspectives, with an overwhelming majority against this annexation.  It remains to be seen if their comments will make any impact.  Yet, if the Council ignores their concerns, it will send a very clear picture as to the intent and transparency of these elected officials

This annexation project has been described as a simple matter of choice, but the distraction of our simple ‘yes or no’ choice is far outweighed by a plethora of choices already made by developers, supported by some in the City, that will change this County forever. Our future is being planned and pushed forward without an ounce of detail shared.  Many citizens moved here for what Fannin County offers now and have no interest in the over-built density and traffic they left behind and that desire is certainly shared by those who have called Fannin home throughout their lives.

While I am not against growth, I support smart growth with the City, County and citizens working together to guide the future of Fannin County.  There are aspects of this annexation that should be known now, like funding, impact studies, ability of current infrastructure to handle the increased demands, impact to current property owners, etc.  Yet, these details are unknown.  It is much like being asked to vote for a new leader, but having no information on any of the candidates.

We should not be distracted by, nor subject to, our elected and developers trying to rush this annexation through this session of the General Assembly.  The pressure is on with only a couple of weeks remaining in session.  Even one developer stated he was in contact with Speaker Ralston, checking on the ‘d-day’ deadline they needed to meet for approval.  Should this bill make it to the floor and be approved that developer stated he could see his gross revenues increase by a projected $67 million.  Meanwhile, the citizens are still trying to figure out how all of this is going to be funded and the impact it will have on them personally and their quality of life.

I have no idea how this story will end.  The Council’s next agenda has been published, but you should not be distracted by the limited list of agenda items.  They have the ability to add items, like annexation, at any time, even last minute before the meeting.  Keep in mind, you have to sign up a week ahead of the meeting for public comment, yet they can add to the agenda at any point up to the meeting.

Witnessing this series of events and how distracting it has become reinforces why it is critical to know the candidates in an election, see how they respond to issues, understand their vision and ask them questions — then GO VOTE!

I do believe that we should be able to trust our elected officials.  We should expect their trustworthiness.  They are a fiduciary for the citizens, managing something they do not own, for our benefit.  Somehow I wonder if they have been distracted from that fact.

THE DECLINE OF CHRISTMAS

Opinion

Has anyone ever thought of the fact that most of our Christmas songs and traditions are only
about 75 or so years old? Doesn’t it seem like this array has just always been there, always been
that way?

Well, it hasn’t always been so joyous and celebrated as it came to be after World War II.
Why is that?

Prior to the victory of the Allies and their return to home and family, Christmas was more
reserved and localized. Songs such as The Messiah and other religious hymns were in place, but
jolly and more secular songs came along with popular movies, such as White Christmas and
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, among others were the result of a desire to make the
Christmas holiday a very special time for families and friends.

Dad, brother, uncle, son and military women etc. had faced the horror of war, with its death and
destruction. There were sights that they could never unsee. Those who were able to return home,
to their wives, husbands, sweethearts and families, wanted to erase those thoughts to the best of
their ability. They had fought pure, unadulterated evil and had won. It seemed their intention to
eradicate such influences in the years to come.

Many of our Greatest Generation put a great deal of time and effort into making the world as
right as possible, to bring as much joy as possible to those they loved. Not only did they save the
world, they saved the best part of themselves and shared that desire for happiness and perfection
with the making of happy stories, happy songs and familiar bliss. No one can argue that the
generation of the 40s and 50’s worked very hard to create as much perfection in society as they
could. It was a halcyon time that, unfortunately, will never be repeated.

Television and movies had their morality department and strived to show family life as a
network of love, discipline and happy endings. Father always knew best and the Donna Reed
show lauded the middle-class family life.

What has happened to society that it has come from the pure entertainment of those shows to
today’s reality television, moral corruption and disdain of most things that relate to God and
religion?

In 1965, a wonderful radio announcer named Paul Harvey made an amazing prophecy on his
weekly show. The title was, If I was the devil.

Anyone who hasn’t heard or read this far-reaching piece that has come to pass in ways that no
one would have guessed. One of his lines quoted from the transcript is “If I were the devil, I
would make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.”
How close is that? He had it nailed and 54 years later, it is true.

Christmas was still reverent in the 70s, and the 80s. People dressed up, had parties, visited with
family and it was a happy time. God was still the Man in Charge in the White House (mostly)
and it reflected on the nation.

The 90s brought us the Clintons and their version of “morality” and the great decline began for
America.

Now in 2019, there are fewer parties, fewer gathering of family and friends than ever. Christmas
cards are not a thing anymore, just send a generic online greeting.

People are well engrossed in their electronic devices. Social life and the moral pressure of
society is long gone. Stores decorate for Christmas in August and begin the big sale that lasts
until well after the New Year.

Retailers completely pass over Thanksgiving, a uniquely American holiday from the Pilgrim
days when living through the winter to harvest was an occasion for thanking Almighty God.
Even Charlie Brown and his gang in Peanuts, when it aired in 1965, complained of the
commercialization of Christmas, lamenting the lack of meaning for monetary gain.
When Christmas songs from the 70s and 80s are played, it is depressing almost to the point of
tears when a comparison is made of the warm, loving, wonderful time of those decades to
today’s commercial apathy.

Maybe, this is an “old folks’ rant about the good old days, but what can be gleaned from today’s
lukewarm electronic holiday?

America has best go back to Ronald Reagan and remember his line:
“If we ever forget we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
If Christians don’t stand up and fight for our basic joys of the Lord, His sacrifice for us
and the right to celebrate such, these rights will be taken away by the Liberal Left with
their Atheistic and destructive ways. There are no more free countries to find with such
liberties as we enjoy. They must not be lost, as they will never be found again.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp Mentions Illegal Immigration in Senate Pick Announcement! – Otherwise Ignores the Crisis

Opinion

Written by: D.A. King originally published on ImmigrationPoliticsGa.com

Despite campaign promises, Kemp is mostly silent 

 In a twenty-minute press conference in his office Wednesday morning, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp formally announced his pick to replace retiring Senator Johnny Isakson. It is notable that in his introduction speech for businesswoman and political trainee Kelly Loeffler, Kemp broached the topic of border security and illegal immigration.

As far as we can tell, this is Kemp’s first public remark related to illegal immigration since the 2018 election. We offer a no-cost, hand car wash to anyone who can accurately cite a quote or remark from Kemp on the issue since then.

“Senator Loeffler will fight to strengthen our immigration laws and finish the Border Wall so we can stop Mexican drug cartels from flooding our streets – here in Georgia – with drugs, weapons, violence, and fear” said Kemp.

According to the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, Georgia is home to more illegal aliens than green card holders. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security ranks the Peach State ahead of Arizona in its population of “undocumented workers.”

Kemp’s silence and blatant disregard for the issue is in defiance of his detailed campaign outline for a state “track and deport plan” in which he pledged to “create a comprehensive database to track criminal aliens in Georgia.” “He will also update Georgia law to streamline deportations from our jails and prisons” and to create a criminal alien database” went the promise.

Still shocked by his inaction on illegal immigration in his first year, pro-enforcement political insiders paying attention to legislation in the Georgia Capitol are carefully watching to see if Kemp will put the power of his office – and begin to honor his campaign promises – by pushing for a simple bill that was held up in the Republican-ruled House in the 2019 session. HB 202 from Rep Jesse Petrea would require the state Department of Corrections to post a quarterly, public report citing the number of foreigners in the prison system, their immigration status, home nation and crimes for which they are serving time.

The measure was stopped in the House Rules Committee and must now begin the hearing process from the beginning, according to the House Clerk’s office.

While it does not begin to approach the tough-talk promises of action on criminal aliens from candidate Kemp, the end result of the Petrea’s HB 202 becoming law would be that Georgia taxpayers would have access to hard, official, indisputable data on at least one part of the cost of illegal immigration – which is one reason the bill was smothered last year by business-first Republican leadership.

A simple one-pager, HB 202 is still alive and has the votes to pass. As this writer noted elsewhere, Kemp could have ordered the DOC to begin the data sharing last year. But he didn’t.

 Illegal immigration is still an issue for Georgians

We make the same no-cost car wash offer to anyone who can cite any comment from Governor Kemp on any of the above examples.

“I got a big truck”

Perhaps most obvious to voters who can remember back to last year is candidate Kemp’s “yep, I just said that…” campaign ad shtick that involved his “I got a big truck” (video) and the possibility of his personally rounding up “criminal illegals.”

Asking about the current whereabouts of the truck seems a fair question for Governor Kemp from the faithful GOP voters.

From here, we will begin to produce regular updates on Governor Kemp’s campaign promises, his silence – or any actions – on the illegal immigration crisis in Georgia

Stay tuned.

Meet James F. Davis

Opinion

James F. Davis grew up on a family farm, has a degree in economics from
Cornell University and an MBA in International Business from the American
University and served in the US Army 3 years with jobs that included, field
artillery forward observer, company commander, and computer systems analyst.
He spent most of his adult life as an international banker, first with Chase
Manhattan Bank where he held long-term assignments in Europe, Latin America
and the USA. Positions included long and short-term Economic Forecasting and
Planning Officer, Country Risk Analyst, and Expansion Diversification Officer.
He was also head of Multinational Lending for Chase in Venezuela.

He moved to several other banking institutions where positions held included
being the head of the Trade Finance Division, the Real Estate Division, the Latin
American Division, and the International Division. He has been profiled in: Who’s
Who in International Banking.

Being responsible for a bank’s business in over 60 countries required analysis of
the economic, social and political conditions in each that they did business. He
learned firsthand what government policies helped bring about economic
prosperity and which ones caused poverty. He accurately predicted the debt
defaults of Mexico and Brazil in 1982 six months before the events.
He traveled extensively in more than 50 countries, meeting with many world
leaders. Seeing first hand how events were misreported in the dominant media
resulted in his becoming involved with Accuracy in Media (AIM) where he is a

Party in North Carolina where he lives with his wife. He also wrote a weekly
column for the Sentinel chain of newspapers and has been published regularly
on political and economic matters. He has been a guest speaker at many GOP
and Tea Party meetings. He was one of the first bankers to write about the
Causes of the Financial Crisis of 2008 which was listed as the best short
explanation on Yahoo Answers. He was the Western North Carolina Chairman
for Cruz for President and a member of the NC Cruz leadership team.

You Scratch My Back, I’ll Scratch Yours

Opinion

If we are to accept Adam Schiff for brains’ definition, “Quid Pro Quo,” is the second most
vile offense against Progressives, short of “lynching” that could be conjured up in the
dirty minds of Republicans. But, it is not a dirty term. It simply means ‘this for that’ or a
promise for a promise or even a contractual exchange. The Clinton’s have been doing
that for decades and no one has complained. Remember Hillary raked in millions selling
our uranium to the Russians while Bill gave them a one hour speech in Moscow on who
knows what subject, how to get the most out of interns one may suppose?

It’s when they get to “tit for tat” that we should become alarmed and defend ourselves
from Progressive launched incoming fire. If our Republicans had any backbone they
would have already launched a pre-emptive strike against the Democrat machinations
in the House to destroy the socialist structure that will seal Americas fate. “Tit for tat”
means you did ‘this’ to us, we’ll do ‘that’ to you. It’ll never happen! Even as evidence
mounts of the role of the treasonous coup plotters in Obama’s CIA, FBI, DoJ and IRS,
we see no inditements, no Grand Juries and no reports. To that mix, add the Romney
Republicans and the picture of the Deep State involvement becomes crystal clear.

The Progressive Democrats long ago, cast aside any semblance of decency, propriety
or good will to preserve Americas greatness. They bought into the New World Order
scheme and a strong, vibrant, self-motivated and moral America, under Donald Trump,
stands in their way. That’s why we see the Democrat party flying off the rails. If they win
again, soon, then we are doomed! Hillary’s thinking she’ll give it another go!

The American people, at least those who can still think for themselves, understand this
completely. Hint to the GOP, you had better pick a side. I suggest on the side of the US
Constitution and start protecting our President. We don’t want to hear any of this “we’re
waiting to see the facts” BS, we know the facts and so do you.

Trump’s single minded ‘twitter’ attacks in his defense against his enemies have thrown
Democrats into confusion, alarmed Republicans, and invigorated his base. That’s a
personal chemistry none of his opponents can generate. In alarm, kindly GOP senators
have advised the President he: “risks bungling impeachment politically and alienating
voters even as he survives a Senate trial without a focused strategy prosecuted by
competent political professionals.” Say what? Competent political professionals?”
Just who did they have in mind to dispense such good advice, Mitt Romney? Kasich?

There is little professional competence left in the Congress of the United States and the
whole corrupt business screams for term limits as well as finding a solution for solving
the problem of the meddling bureaucrats that actually run the government. Professional
politicians are the bane of good government. They quickly come to believe in their own
infallibility as political thinkers and foreign policy experts, then enter into Quid pro Quo
alignments to satisfy their own base; “You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.” Politics
has become an ugly business and those ‘thinkers,’ the inept ones, like Pelosi, Schiff,
Maxine Waters and Jerry Nadler have made it so. They’re truly rotten people!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

The Transcript! What About the Transcript?

Opinion

The crazy Democrats, in a near panic meltdown over their three year failure to depose the
President, and now fearful of Trump’s DoJ exposing their own perfidies, have turned up the
burners on impeachment over a phone call to the point they may actually burn themselves.
Maybe they should have read the transcript!

Now, in desperation, they bring in a uniformed retired Army Lt. Col who supposedly was one of
the NSC members privy to the Presidents conversation with the Ukrainian President.
Apparently, the decorated but displeased officer, wanted to add a few defining words to the
presidents conversation. Was he, in fact, the alleged “Whistleblower” the Democrats don’t want
to expose? They sneaked him in. He’s the best pick so far. Did any of ‘em read the transcript?
Politico tells us the Democrats are engaged in a intra-party fight over a resolution that makes
limited changes to their impeachment inquiry, “a needless distraction for Democrats just as they
collect some of the most explosive testimony to date against President Donald Trump.”

House investigators (bipartisan) heard “damning testimony” from a National Security Council
official, the Lt. Col., supposedly providing a direct first hand account of Trump’s phone call with
the Ukrainian president. Say what? Didn’t they read the transcript of that call? I haven’t seen or
heard of any “damming evidence,” only hearsay, guesses and innuendo’s. Besides, didn’t
Schiff meet this witness first to coordinate his testimony to Schiff’s questions? Yeah, he did!

In their delusion, Democrats argue over the words needed to go forward with their impeachment
scam the public might believe while the leadership dithers on trying to understand just what the
resolution accomplishes and why it’s even important now. Someone must have read the
transcript, surely? It’s out there because Trump ‘Trumped ‘em” again.
Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-N.J.), understands the “tar baby” trap his caucus is heading into. He
opined that when House Republicans want Trump’s Impeachment to proceed, never mind
whatever Romney and the “never Trumpers” want, then he smells a trap there. His very words
were: “So if they very much want it, it would mean they want to help us a whole lot and really
think it’s a good idea, or they think that it was going to put us in a tight spot.” A few other House
Democrats feel the same way and see danger in pressing on. They read the transcript!

Those House Democrat moderates, that follow the flock of sheep leader, Nancy Pelosi’s
direction, will vote for the resolution even while the squabbling over procedure is collapsing
around them from over exposure, Republican attacks and no action. It was not intended for a
simple procedural measure to consume so much time just to impeach that awful President
Trump. In the meantime, Trump carries on Making America Great Again.

What we actually have been witnessing here is Democrat managerial incompetence. Their party
has been Balkanized (broken into squabbling pieces) by incompetent leadership of the several
committee chairmen competing to be the one who gets Trump while never at all realizing they
are revealing themselves as the incompetent fools they really are.

Jerry Nadler has dropped from the radar since the debacle of his one witness hearing, turned
him into a complete putz. Adam Schiff is a sneaky, rotten, lying, characterless, dimwit who has
earned the jokes now spotlighting his discredited character. He can forgo any earned respect.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
