  • Gov. Cuomo’s visit to Georgia blasted as ‘absurd’ amid NY’s coronavirus death total

    NY Post ^ | July 20, 2020 | 2:23pm | Bernadette Hogan and Carl Campanile
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo went down to Georgia Monday to advise local officials there on how to curb the coronavirus pandemic — but critics said the trip was nothing more than an ill-conceived public relations stunt given all the deaths that New York suffered. New York was the hardest hit by the COVID-19 outbreak in the early spring and more than 25,000 residents have died from the killer bug — more than any other state. And Cuomo has come under heavy criticism for his early edict that may have led to more than 6,000 nursing home deaths. While the pandemic has...

    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...
  • Mayor Bottoms says city mask mandate stands despite governor’s order; not afraid of possible state lawsuit

    Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said Atlanta’s mask mandate would stand despite Gov. Brian Kemp’s executive order voiding local face covering requirements. “My belief is that the city still has appropriate standing to mandate masks,” Bottoms said during a streamed press conference on July 16 to give an update on the city’s COVID-19 response. Bottoms said she found it “quite interesting” that Kemp decided to void city and county mask mandates after Atlanta implemented one, since other cities have had them in place for weeks. The mayor also linked Kemp’s decision to President Donald Trump’s visit to the UPS hub at...
  • Georgia Governor Declares State of Emergency, Authorizes 1,000 Troops to Protect Citizens

    Atlanta, GA – Following weeks of dramatically increased violent crime and property destruction in the City of Atlanta, the July Fourth weekend saw over thirty Georgians wounded by gunfire, including five confirmed dead. Today Governor Kemp issued Executive Order 07.06.20.01, which declares a State of Emergency across Georgia and authorizes the activation of as many as 1,000 Georgia National Guard troops. “Peaceful protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous, destructive agenda. Now, innocent Georgians are being targeted, shot, and left for dead,” said Governor Kemp. “This lawlessness must be stopped and order restored in our capital city. I have...
  • Big Win for Re-opening Supporter Governor Brian Kemp as Georgia COVID-19 Deaths Hit 3-Month Low

    PJ Media ^ | 07/03/2020 | Stacey Lennox
    In a bit of news you can file under “good,” Georgia’s COVID-19 deaths have reached a three-month low. I asked a while back when Governor Brian Kemp was going to get an apology from the media. This question was rhetorical, of course. Georgia Reopens One of the first movers to reopen the economy, Governor Kemp was attacked by the press and the Health Experts™ as reckless and incompetent. They were dishonest then, and they are dishonest now. No one said COVID-19 was going away. We needed to flatten the curve, and it would appear Georgia has been successful in doing...
  • Spot The Difference: Two Governors Reopened Their States, Only One Was Accused of ‘Human Sacrifice’

    The governors of Georgia and Colorado have at least one thing in common. They both took steps to reopen their states' economies in late April amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But for some reason, the media's coverage of Gov. Brian Kemp (R., Ga.) has been slightly different from the media's coverage of Gov. Jared Polis (D., Colo.). Kemp, for example, has been accused of experimenting with "human sacrifice." So reads the headline of an April 29 article published in the Atlantic, which accuses Kemp of turning Georgia residents into "unwilling canaries in an invisible coal mine, sent to find out...

    Newsbusters ^ | May 17, 2020 | P.J. Gladnick
    Georgia became an "experiment in human sacrifice" and "leads the race to become America's no. 1 Death Destination." Those were among the many warnings from the mainstream media in April in reaction to the announcement by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp lifting many of the lockdown restrictions on April 24 that had been imposed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Of course, you won't be seeing much of those doom and gloom predictions now since, nearly a month later, those dire prognostications simply did not come to pass. In fact, Georgia, along with other states such as Florida, are seeing a decline...

    VIDEO Liberals were howling about Georgia Governor Brian Kemp allowing the state to re-open on April 24. Yet despite the dire predictions of doom a few weeks ago, the number of cases in the state have not only remained flat but have declined by 12% during the past week according to Axios.

    Rush Limbaugh said these next four months are going to be a "veritable war" like we have not seen.... On the Tuesday broadcast of his nationally-syndicated radio program, Limbaugh said Democrats will (SNIP) blow up their own country's jobs to ensure a Trump loss in November. RUSH LIMBAUGH: I’ll tell you something else that’s starting to send red flags up. You probably have already noticed this. All these blue state governors that want to keep their states locked down, it’s purely political. But what are they depending on? They’re depending on the red states — the red states that are...

    The Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, May 13, 2020 | James Varney
    When Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp reopened his state for business last month, he was derided as a coronavirus-denier and a veritable murderer. Amid broad concern among public health officials that it was too soon and risked a resurgence of COVID-19 cases and deaths, the Atlantic branded the move “Georgia’s experiment in human sacrifice.” So far at least, that hasn’t happened. While no one can pinpoint why and some think the verdict still under deliberation, the confident predictions that Mr. Kemp, a Republican, had unleashed a calamity on the Peach State appear to be wrong. The novel coronavirus that originated last...

    In late April Dr. Tony Fauci made it clear he opposed the decision by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to lift the lockdown orders in his state. “If I were advising the governor, I would tell him he should be careful. Going ahead and leapfrogging into phases where you should not be … I would advise him not to do that.” But Dr. Fauci was wrong again. In fact, it starting to look like this guy is NEVER right about anything? It must be nice having a government job and not have to worry about getting fired! Fauci and the critics...

    Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced Saturday that the state had the lowest number of hospitalized coronavirus patients it has seen in just over a month. "Today marks the lowest number of COVID-19 positive patients currently hospitalized statewide (1,203) since hospitals began reporting this data on April 8th," Kemp tweeted. "Today also marks the lowest total of ventilators in use (897 with 1,945 available). We will win this fight together!" he added.
  • What the Hell Was Stacey Abrams’ Plan?

    Redstate ^ | Joe Cunningham
    A little over a year ago, Stacey Abrams could’ve had anything she wanted. She was getting a lot of friendly media coverage; many people in the national Democratic Party and the media were disappointed that she lost to Brian Kemp in the Georgia gubernatorial race. She had liberal activists super excited about her future. *snip* So what happened to Stacey Abrams? There’s a problem with blind ambition when it’s grouped with inexperience and a sense of entitlement. Abrams allies literally shouted down her primary opponent, Stacey Evans, demanding that the gubernatorial candidate be black. She got the nomination and went...

    New Georgia drivers can get a driver’s license without passing a road test — at least for the next two weeks. In a little-noticed portion of Gov. Brian Kemp’s April 23 executive order allowing certain businesses to re-open, Kemp also ordered the state Department of Driver Services to suspend a requirement that teens and other new drivers must pass a road skills test before getting a new or upgraded license. The exemption continues for the duration of Kemp’s state of emergency declaration, originally due to expire May 13 but recently extended to June 12.

    As some states begin loosening coronavirus lockdowns, all eyes are on Texas to see if a phased reopening can be done safely. In what could be the beginning of America’s resurgence from the coronavirus pandemic, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced Monday he will let the state’s stay-at-home order expire at the end of the month and allow some businesses to reopen Friday, with restrictions. It marks the boldest loosening of pandemic restrictions since states began issuing lockdown orders last month, and could mark a path ahead for reopening the rest of the country. Retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters, and malls...

    A very self-assured Stacy Abrams indulged the hosts of 'The View' with lies about [the real] Governor Brian Kemp’s plan to reopen much of Georgia’s economy Stacy Abrams may have lost the Georgia governor’s race in 2018, but that hasn’t stopped her from pretending she is one, imitating other governors like Whitmer and Brown in their fear-based responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and fundamentally distorted views of economic policy. She took time out of her busy schedule running for vice presidential nominee yesterday to indulge the ladies of “The View” with all the satisfying lies rich and isolated people who...

    Those in the beauty industry – barbershops, hair and nail salon and spas – have all taken a massive hit during the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. They have been deemed "non-essential" from the beginning. In some states, it will be another four to six weeks before these businesses are able to reopen. In other states, like California, they are closed with no reopening date in sight. Critics, especially rich critics on the left, want beauty professionals to stay home. Taurean Overall, the owner of three successful Blessed Up Barber Shops in Atlanta, said what's being asked of them is unrealistic and...

    What some who don’t live in Georgia may not realize is that Gov. Brian Kemp’s original shelter-in-place order was not a total lockdown. Undeterred by his critics, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is moving forward with the bold decision to begin to reopen his state’s businesses and launch our return to normal life. According to an order Kemp promulgated Monday, nail salons, massage therapists, tattoo parlors, bowling alleys, gyms, and other businesses may reopen on Friday. In-person church services can reopen. On Monday, restaurants and movie theaters may reopen. Dentists’ and doctors’ offices and all other health care-related practices and services...

    As you read this, the State of Georgia has become the embodiment of the mantra that has been bubbling-up for weeks among quarantined Americans from coast to coast: “THIS MADNESS MUST END.” So-called “average” citizens—whose wisdom and common sense far exceed that of robotic, agenda-driven media hysterics—cheered the news that Georgia governor Brian Kemp had signed an executive order to allow barber shops, hair salons, movie theaters and bowling alleys to reopen on Friday, April 24th. (Note the word allow. Kemp did not order businesses to reopen. Weird concept: he simple eased restrictions imposed which helped bend the curve of...
