  • RINO/Romney Clone Kelly Loeffler Among Corrupt Senate Virus Profiteers

    Noisy Room ^ | July18, 2020 | Daniel John Sobieski
    As Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA, and ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, valiantly defended President Trump against the deep state coup trying to unseat the duly elected President of the United States, the mind pondered the possibility of a Sen. Collins from Georgia defending the President on the Senate floor. Instead, we got a big business donor whom we are assured has all the boxes checked and an “R” next to her name. You know, someone like a Mitt Romney or a Susan Collins or a Jeff Flake. With Collins, we would have been assured of a passionate conservative...
  • Abrams: GOP Building an Army of People to ‘Get in Line and Try to Scare People Out of Voting’

    Thursday on MSNBC, “The Last Word,” 2018 Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said the Republican Party was planning to have an “army” of people who are “going to get in line and try to scare people out of voting.” O’Donnell said, “When you look at the various voter suppression tactics that are still alive and still working for Republicans in this country, how do you expect that to impact this election? Is it happening in the states that Democrats need to win?”

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told Comedy Central's Trevor Noah that "there's not a doubt about it, Trump will try to steal this year's election. Look, we all know he did it in 2016. October polls showed him behind by double digits and the Billy Bush tape should've been the knock out blow. But a few weeks later to everyone's surprise, he was declared the winner." "Since he got away with conspiring with the Russians I expect him to do it again," Biden alleged. "Rep. Schiff had hard evidence, but the Republicans in the Senate refused to convict Trump after...
  • Experience mattered in 2016 and Stacey Abrams doesn't have it for 2020

    Jennifer Rubin may have forgotten most everything she ever knew before 2016, but she at least appears to have retained the knowledge that experience stands for something. She otherwise wouldn’t have dedicated an entire column on Wednesday to calling anyone who questions Abrams’s experience — what else? — racist. . . . Let it be known that filing paperwork to register the name of a nonprofit group and give a speech on TV are now major “accomplishments” on a presidential level, according to Rubin. Abrams has, of course, done some things. She won a state-level seat in several races, wherein...
  • Stacey Abrams is the Democrats’ Sarah Palin

    The Washington Post ^ | May 19, 2020 | Marc A. Thiessen
    Stacey Abrams is running a less-than-subtle campaign to be Joe Biden’s vice-presidential running mate. Republicans should hope she succeeds. If selected, she would displace Sarah Palin as the least-qualified person ever to serve on a major-party ticket. Biden should understand this, because he saw firsthand how much damage Palin’s selection did to then-Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the Republican presidential nominee in 2008. Preelection polls showed that 6 out of 10 Americans said Palin was not qualified for the job, and a Stanford University study found that she cost McCain more than 2 million votes.

    NY Post ^ | May 18 2020 | Rich Lowry
    Stacey Abrams has another distinction to add to her resume — she is among the most preposterous potential vice-presidential candidates ever. Her attempt to leverage a failed Georgia gubernatorial bid into a spot on the Democratic ticket is so brazenly absurd that it’s hard to think of precedents. But the 46-year-old African-American activist isn’t one to be constrained by standard political practice — or reality. She refused to concede her narrow but clear 2018 gubernatorial loss, instead alleging she’d been undone by a massive voter-suppression scheme.

    Failed 2018 Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams did an “interview” with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday that was, like most interviews she’s done, designed to beef up her alleged vice presidential qualifications at a critical time when Joe Biden’s VP “selection” committee are helping him decide who his running mate will be. During the segment, Amanpour twice mentioned the fact that Abrams was “pitching” herself as the most viable option for Biden to pick, talking about how she was out there “auditioning” for the position and showing her “resume” because of what she (Abrams) “feels” is her “right as...
  • Biden insiders slam Stacey Abrams’ veep pitch: ‘No one takes Stacey seriously’

    05/03/2020 11:28:40 AM PDT · by Conserv · 46 replies
    Stacey Abrams, a former Georgia State House leader, is aggressively marketing herself as a potential vice president for Joe Biden — increasingly irritating those in the former veep’s orbit, an insider said. Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has her sights set on something else — secretary of defense, say those familiar with her plans. “If they go with a black woman, it would be Kamala Harris, but she’s a clunky communicator and couldn’t generate any excitement for her own campaign with black or white voters,” the Biden insider said.” While campaigning for vice president traditionally requires a delicate dance of private...

    After new evidence emerged corroborating Tara Reade's sexual assault allegation against former Delaware senator and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, the major news networks failed to ask a single question about it on the Sunday morning shows. Two people rumored to be on Biden's potential VP list, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) and Stacey Abrams (D-failed politician), were not asked a single question, despite Sunday appearances on ABC and NBC, respectively. Speaker Pelosi also made the rounds on Sunday, where she too wasn't asked a single question about the new evidence. The speaker did say she supports releasing prisoners, however,...

    Democratic try-hard Stacey Abrams, who in 2018 lost her race for governor of Georgia, is still everywhere because the national media thinks Joe Biden should pick her as his running mate. In her latest nationally televised interview, she was asked on ABC's The View whether she was "concerned" that Biden might decline to select, not just a woman, but a "woman of color," as his No. 2. "I would share your concern about not picking a woman of color," she said, "because women of color, particularly black women, are the strongest part of the Democratic Party, the most loyal." Hmm......

    The commandant of the Marine Corps is pushing an ambitious plan to shrink the Corps and turn it into a more mobile fighting force. Part of that plan is a reduction in manpower, but the service's top officer also wants to cut a number of other units, including all of the Corps' tank battalions.

    WASHINGTON - Stacey Abrams would be the strongest running mate for Joe Biden in the November election against President Donald Trump, according to an analysis by a progressive think tank. Way to Win, a women-led network of deep-pocketed donors, commissioned Data for Progress to look into potential vice presidential picks after Super Tuesday, when Biden ran up an imposing delegate lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders. The think tank, whose polls of presidential primary contests this year have been highly regarded for their accuracy, conducted an online survey of 4,998 likely voters across the country on March 12 to gauge how...
  • Donald Trump's top Russia expert on National Security Council is 'escorted off the White House grounds amid a security investigation'

    President Donald Trump's top Russia expert on the National Security Counsel is reportedly on leave pending a security investigation. Andrew Peek, the NSC’s senior director for European and Russian affairs, was escorted from the White House grounds on Friday, two people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. Peek had been in the NSC role for just two months, after most recently working as a deputy assistant secretary of state with responsibility for Iran and Iraq. Peek had been expected to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland next week with Trump and other top aides. However, he is currently...

    A computer security expert says he found that a forensic image of the election server central to a legal battle over the integrity of Georgia elections showed signs that the original server was hacked. The server was left exposed to the open internet for at least six months, a problem the same expert discovered in August 2016. It was subsequently wiped clean in mid-2017 with no notice, just days after election integrity activists filed a lawsuit seeking an overhaul of what they called the state’s unreliable and negligently run election system. In late December 2019, the plaintiffs were finally able...

    Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp will likely tap business executive Kelly Loeffler to the U.S. Senate despite strong criticism from his conservative base over Loffler’s affiliation with Planned Parenthood, Stacey Abrams, and establishment Republicans, according to a report released Friday. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Friday that Kemp plans to tap business executive Loeffler next week as he will attempt to appeal to Georgia suburban women despite the conservative opposition to Loeffler. Kemp’s potential nomination of Loeffler will defy President Donald Trump, prominent conservative organizations, and Georgia’s conservative base that helped Kemp get elected to the governor’s office. Breitbart News has...

    Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton blamed voter suppression for her 2016 loss, and threw her support behind claims made by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams regarding the 2018 Georgia governor race. "You can run the best campaign, you can have the best plans, you can get the nomination, you can win the popular vote. And you can lose the Electoral College and therefore the election for these four reasons. Number one, voter suppression," Clinton said Tuesday an "In Defense of Democracy" event at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. "We saw what happened in Georgia where Stacey Abrams should...

    Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams is helping launch a “Majority Rules” initiative that aims to equip and mobilize more than two million women for political activism, reports said. Abrams, a runner-up in last year’s gubernatorial race in Georgia, told an audience in Atlanta on Sunday that she does not follow the rules. “As women, we are taught there are certain rules we have to follow. We are taught that it’s our responsibility to meekly accept the outcome and to trust the rules as they were written down. I don’t,” she said.

When Madison asked if she would be interested in being a running mate for the eventual 2020 Democratic nominee, Abrams said, “If the question is would I like the job I’m not going to be coy and say no. Of course, I would love that opportunity.”

    The U.S. Army’s newest tank in the summer of 2019 should enter service with the first large unit to use the type. The Army in late 2017 accepted the very first M-1A2C Abrams tanks. Nearly two years later the service has enough of the new vehicles to equip an entire brigade. “We’re in the throes of getting that together,” Hank Kennedy, a manager at General Dynamics’ tank plant in Lima Ohio, told Lima News.
