  • Georgia State Senator Admits To Holding Bill Hostage

    03/10/2014 7:35:19 AM PDT · by Billlknowles · 17 replies ^ | 3/8/2014 | BillK
    Gwinnett County State Senator and chairman of the Health and Human Service Committee Renee Unterman openly admitted to holding 'Haleigh's Hope', HB 885 sponsored by Representative Allen Peake, hostage until the State House will consider bills that she has authored. WSB reporter Lori Geary asked Unterman point blank if this were the case, and to Unterman's credit, she did not deny it and was very candid in saying that she was. But then she went on to state that the parents of the kids who can benefit from the legalization of medicinal cannabis didn't understand how it works in the...

    In the Republican Primary for Georgia’s 12th Congressional District Lee Anderson has demonstrated he is very different from his three Republican opponents Rick W. Allen, Wright McLeod, and Maria Sheffield. And not in a good way. Lee Anderson has, in effect, made the primary a three person race for conservatives based on four instances where he demonstrated a negative approach to the campaign which disqualifies him from serious consideration. 1: Walking Away from Ethics Lee Anderson attended the press conference held by the Ethics Alliance, made up of various organizations concerned about the state of ethics under the Gold Dome,...
  • Fear And Loathing In Macon, Georgia

    03/09/2012 1:06:09 PM PST · by Billlknowles ^ | 3-8-2012 | Bill Knowles
    We should have learned our lesson here in Macon….If you dare ever to disagree with a African-American politicians’ political agenda you’re a racist, no matter what color you are. Or so says our old friend Elaine Lucas who again has poked her head out of her cave to try and ram the Dr. Romain Dallemand’s Macon Miracle plan down our throat (please read my other columns in The 11th Hour or at for more information about the plan itself) while at the same time keeping our community from evolving by consolidating the City of Macon and the Bibb County...
  • Will Dr. Romain Dallemand's Dream Become Macon's Nightmare?

    02/10/2012 10:17:39 AM PST · by Billlknowles · 3 replies ^ | 2-10-2012 | Bill Knowles
    Back in 2010 before the hiring of Bibb County School Superintendent Romain Dallemand, I wrote an article called ‘The Strange Case of Dr. Dallemand and Mr. Hyde’ warning the citizens about the good doctor and what he has done in the past. Unfortunately, the ‘Macon Miracle’ plan is proving me to be correct. Below is a few of the things that Dallemand did before he came to Bibb County but I’ve updated it to show some things he’s done while he’s been here. It appears from every source that I have checked Dr. Dallemand is not a problem solver, but...
  • Top Komen Official Resigns Over Planned Parenthood Reversal

    02/07/2012 10:10:18 AM PST · by Billlknowles · 6 replies Blog ^ | 2-7-2012 | Bill Knowles
    Former Georgia Secretary of State and Governor's candidate Karen Handel has announced her resignation as Senior Vice-President for policy from the Susan Komen Foundation because of the foundation's controversial funding of Planned Parenthood. reported that "Komen initially decided in December to revise its grant-making process to funds grants to agencies that provide direct health services for women — which would eliminate Planned Parenthood since it does not do mammograms. After Planned Parenthood, Democratic members of Congress and the media pounced on Komen for its decision, Komen clarified that Planned Parenthood would still be allowed to submit grant requests but...
  • An Open Letter To RNC Reince Preibus: Do The Right Thing With The Florida Delegates

    02/03/2012 9:45:14 PM PST · by Billlknowles · 39 replies ^ | 2-4-2012 | Bill Knowles
    Dear Chairman Preibus, I am writing an open letter to you in hopes that you will do the right thing and make the Florida Republican Party abide by the rules of the Republican National Committee. The state of Florida deliberately snubbed its' nose at the party and the rules several months ago when it voted to hold the Florida primary early, which has already cost if 49 delegates out of the original 99 delegates allocated by the RNC. Now they further give the party the middle finger by allocating the remaining delegates as "winner-take-all", instead of the proportional allotment that...
  • The Math of the GOP Nomination

    02/03/2012 6:52:52 PM PST · by Billlknowles · 12 replies ^ | 2/3/2012 | Randy Evans
    For all the 2012 GOP candidates, it is the math that makes securing the nomination so complicated. There will be 2,165 delegates to the Republican National Convention in August in Tampa, Florida. In order to win the Republican Nomination, a Presidential candidate must have 1,144 delegates. To put this in perspective, only 112 delegates (less than 10%) have been won. In fact, the candidate with the most delegates (former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney) has only 71 delegates. This seems rather amazing given all of the media attention so far. From the Iowa caucuses to the Florida primary seems like an...

    Just when you thought the 2012 Presidential sweepstakes couldn't get any crazier, Roseanne Barr announces that she is seriously seeking the nomination of the Green Party for President of the United States. God help us all.... I sincerely hope that she gets the nomination at the party's convention in Baltimore this coming July. The same loons that would vote for her would have voted for President Obama. Run Rosie Run!
  • Romney Quotes From Thurston Howell III and Ebenezer Scrooge

    02/01/2012 4:00:08 PM PST · by Billlknowles · 18 replies · 1+ views ^ | 2/1/2012 | Bill Knowles
    Ok....gang....Mitt is the front-runner....again....for now...Why the heck would he say something stupid like the dumb quote he made today about the poor? In his latest goof, Romney was quoted as saying that he is not concerned about "the poor...they have a safety net...if it needs repair, I'll fix it." Apparently Mitt has started channelling the ghosts of Ebenezer Scrooge and Thurston Howell III when he talks. Doesn't this sound eerily close to "A Christmas Carol"? First Collector: At this festive time of year, Mr. Scrooge, it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the...
  • Florida Predictions: Closer Than You Think

    Ok...I've been wrong before and I will be again....But here's my predictions for tonights' Florida Primary: Newt will fare much better than expected. Santorum will do a little better than expected as well. Romney may win this, but it will be a much closer race than most people think. Almost every poll in South Carolina put Romney almost exactly where he ended up and the same was true in New Hampshire. To me, this denotes that undecideds are going heavily toward Gingrich, or other candidates as was the case in New Hampshire. In South Carolina, most of the polls showed...
  • Former Gore Campaign Manager Donna Brazile: Gingrich is the ONLY Republican who whipped us in 1994"

    Democrat strategist and former Al Gore Campaign Manager Donna Brazile said on "This Week" that Newt Gingrich is "the ONLY Republican, that I've been in battle with, as a Democratic strategist and organizer, who whipped us in 1994." I think she's basically saying not to count Gingrich out yet... Don't miss out on the first part of this clip where radio talk show host Laura Ingraham unloaded by saying that there are "many people who wouldn't be in Washington had it not been for three people: Bill Buckley, Ronald Reagan and Newt Gingrich. He was the face of Conservatism in...

    A lot of things have transpired over the last 48 hours to completely change the dynamics of the race for the Republican nomination: 1. Rick Santorum was declared the winner in the Iowa Caucuses showing that Mitt Romney is in fact beatable. 2. Rick Perry has bailed out of the Presidential race, endorsing Newt Gingrich, and saying that he will actively campaign for the Speaker. 3. The most current polls in South Carolina show that Romney's support is starting to erode, while the same polls are showing that Gingrich's is growing daily. Four polls, Clemson/Palmetto, Public Policy Polling, Rasmussen and...
  • BREAKING NEWS: WAP EXCLUSIVE: State Senator Kevin Bryant has Confirmed He Is Supporting Ron Paul

    01/17/2012 5:22:04 AM PST · by Billlknowles · 18 replies ^ | 1/16/2012 | Bill Knowles
    I just recieved a personal message from State Senator Kevin Bryant of South Carolina who has confirmed that he will indeed be supporting Congressman Ron Paul for President. Quite honestly, I wrote to the Senator asking him to reconsider his support for Paul. He sent me the following gracious email: "Great to hear from you Bill, I have chosen to support Dr. Paul as I believe his message energizes our base. Interestingly, even though he's the oldest candidate, the young voters seem to be attracted to him. Thanks for your input." I responded back that I sincerely hopes that he...
  • Obama Warns Israel Not To Attack Iran

    01/14/2012 7:29:03 PM PST · by Billlknowles · 25 replies ^ | 1/14/2012 | Bill Knowles
    Apparently not content by merely insulting Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by suggesting that the Palestinians be given territory as it was before 1967, President Obama and hapless Defense Secretary Leon Panetta have given Israel several private warnings telling them not to take military action against Iran and the 'Madman of Tehran' Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. At a time where Obama should be giving unconditional support to our allies in the Middle East, he again chooses to rebuke them and snub his nose at them.

    The first time one of Ron Paul's supporters called me a Neocon I was insulted and hacked off which was exactly the response the name caller was looking for. However since then, the more times I have been called that the more enamored to it I have become. Yes....I admit it...I am a Neocon. Thank you for labeling me as such, all you napalm spreading Paul-ites who are the self-proclaimed "Defenders of the Faith", "Proclaimers of the Truth" and "The Founding Fathers Favorites". Your name calling has finally produced something meaningful. The American Heritage Dictionary's definition of neoconservativism is "an...

    We have FINALLY gotten into 2012 and are right at the beginning of the primary season with the Iowa Caucuses behind us, the New Hampshire primary yielded little surprises and the South Carolina Primary lurks in the shadows of the very near future. The field of candidates have predictably dwindled and will continue skinnying down until we are left with our nominee to run against Obama. Tim Pawlenty was the first casualty of Iowa after the Ames Straw Poll, followed by Herman Cain who withdrew amidst false charges of sexual misconduct, Gary Johnson left the Republican race to tilt at...

    WeArePolitics ^ | 1/3/2012 | Bill Knowles
    The gloves have come off by the other candidates now in response to all of the mudslinging being done at the hands of the Romney and Paul campaigns so the New Hampshire Primary is proving to be a little more contested than originally thought and is proving that it may not be the coronation that Mitt Romney expects. I came fairly close with my predictions for Iowa, correctly nailing that Bachmann would end her race by the end of the week and calling Mitt Romney the winner, albeit by 8 votes. I thought Santorum would run fourth, but did expect...
  • The Constitution, Iowa and Ron Paul

    01/02/2012 8:51:21 AM PST · by Billlknowles · 2 replies ^ | 1/2/2012 | Bill Knowles
    I have recently been very critical of Congressman Ron Paul on WeArePolitics for a myriad of different reasons that main one of which is that I feel that he is very detrimental to the Republican Party. A party that he has absolutely no loyalty to nor allegiance. Paul, as I have written before, has run a slash and burn campaign in Iowa, and it is certainly working for him....At the expense of a few of the other candidates and in particular former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Paul's campaign has been running non stop ads in Iowa about Newt that contain...

    Fresh off of his endorsement from former KKK Grand Wizard and former Congressman from Louisiana David Duke, we find this photo of Congressman Ron Paul with former Klansman, former Nazi and current radio show host and moderator of Don Black. Pictured next to Black in the cool hat appears to be his radio sidekick and son Derek. (Here's an interesting note....Derek's mother is David Duke's ex-wife. Que the banjos.)
  • Is Ron Paul A Republican or a Libertarian?

    Thanks to glowing commentary from Ron Paul suppporters I have been called a coward, a traitor, a neocon, a nazi, that I'm sick and a 'demeanor' of the modern day Thomas Jefferson all because I said what a lot of Republicans are thinking but won't say: Ron Paul is a Libertarian and not a Republican. (For the record, with due respect to the Congressman, Ron Paul couldn't hold Thomas Jefferson's quill pen.) Congressman Paul turned his back on the GOP in 1987 and resigned. Instead of trying to fix the problems that he cites in his resignation, he bolts and...
