    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Various reports indicate President Donald Trump will return to West Virginia before the Nov. 6 General Election to stump for state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey in his run for U.S. Senate. According to a Reuters report, Trump will go on an 8-state blitz beginning next Wednesday including campaign stops in West Virginia, Florida, Missouri, Indiana, Montana, Ohio, Georgia and Tennessee. Morrisey, who has trailed U.S. Senator Joe Manchin in most of the major polls, predicted during an appearance on MetroNews “Talkline” earlier this week that Trump would return. Trump visited Wheeling Sept. 29. “A vote for Patrick...
  • Jimmy Carter Says He Would ‘Change Every Trump Policy’ If He Could Be President Again

    Former President Jimmy Carter isn’t holding back in his assessment of Donald Trump, saying this week that if he could somehow become president again he would reverse all the policies Trump has put in place since taking office. Carter made the remark at Emory University, where he speaks each year to incoming students. The 93-year-old former president said he prays for Donald Trump regularly, though it didn’t appear to be working as Trump would “have to change a lot of things” if his prayers were answered. If he had the chance, Carter said he would make the changes himself. “If...

    Carter also said an additional statement Trump issued under fire is “still not as enthusiastic as it should be.” Jimmy Carter remains unimpressed with President Donald Trump’s belated effort to take note of and honor the late Sen. John McCain’s service to the U.S. In fact, the 93-year-old former president characterized it as “at best adequate.” Carter spoke with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday about Trump’s responses after McCain ― who endured torture as a POW during the Vietnam war, served more than 45 years in Congress and was the 2008 GOP presidential nominee ― died at his home in...
  • Georgia Democrats aren't putting Trump at center of November hopes

    Georgia Democrats hope that President Donald Trump helps fuel a blue wave that will surge over Republicans on the November ballot. But that doesn't mean they're putting him at the center of their election plans. For as much as state Democrats despise Trump -- and opinion polls consistently confirm they do -- he's been largely missing from campaign trail attacks. Stacey Abrams, the party's nominee for governor, studiously avoids mentioning the president as she stumps across the state. And many of the down-ticket candidates have followed her lead, instead focusing on their policies -- or their GOP opponents' stances. At...

    The retired peanut farmer, 93, has been less vocal than other former commanders in chief about the goings-on in the White House, but in a recent interview with The Washington Post, Carter seared Trump’s policies and character. “I think he’s a disaster … In human rights and in treating people equal,” the 39th president said before his wife, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, 91, jumped in. “The worst is that he is not telling the truth, and that just hurts everything,” she added. Cohen implicated Trump in a federal crime when the lawyer admitted to a federal judge that, at...

    Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R) completed his surprise comeback on Tuesday, claiming the Republican nomination for governor after winning late endorsements from President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Kemp, serving his second term as secretary of State, bested Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle (R) in a low-turnout runoff two months after Cagle finished first in the primary, the Associated Press reported. Cagle called Kemp to concede the race about an hour-and-a-half after polls closed, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. In the end, the contest wasn't even close. With 36 percent of the vote reporting, Kemp had taken 69 percent....

    Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence,...

    ATLANTA (AP) - A new lawsuit claims Georgia's electronic touchscreen voting system is so riddled with problems that the results of the most expensive House race in U.S. history should be tossed out and a new election held. The lawsuit by the Colorado-based Coalition for Good Governance and six Georgia voters was filed Monday in Fulton County Superior Court. It seeks to overturn the results of the June 20 runoff election between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia's 6th Congressional District. Handel was declared the winner....

    Despite the opposition Trump has galvanized, the Democrats still haven’t figured out how to win in the places where they’re trying to stage a comeback. ATLANTA—Around midnight, hours after their candidate conceded he had lost the Most Important Special Election in History, the last remaining supporters of Jon Ossoff took over the stage where he had recently stood. One of them waved a bottle of vodka in the air. Together, they took up the time-honored leftist chant: “This is what democracy looks like!” Sometimes, this is indeed what democracy looks like: you get outvoted. Democrats were counting on Ossoff, the...

    Well, you know folks, Ms. Karen Handel, now, Republican Congresswoman, Karen Handel, is a bit on the frumpy side and certainly not among the great orators of all time, but Ms. Handel is supreme in her dedication and devotion in never giving up on her dreams. Her life was not star studded...she and, only she, made it that way with great support from her husband, and those around her that discovered her talent and drive to become something that she was not handed by birth. Do you know who Karen Handel really is.....she is simply the true embodiment of the...
  • If GA-06 Was a Referendum on Trump, Democrats Had Better Be Worried

    Red State ^ | June 21, 2017
    Last night’s election in GA-06 has been widely portrayed as a referendum on President Trump. If you do a Google search for GA-06 and “referendum on Trump” you will get over 1.1 million hits. For instance, there is this from the New York Times: High-Stakes Referendum on Trump Takes Shape in a Georgia Special Election. Sadly, but unsurprisingly, it was dutifully and gleefully parroted by many self-described conservatives who have made #NeverTrump a lifestyle choice. The votes have been cast and if the GA-06 was a referendum on Trump and not simply a congressional race in which the winner was...

    Democrats need to outperform Hillary Clinton to take back the House. Ossoff did worse than her. Democrats faced yet another disappointment in Tuesday’s special elections, as Jon Ossoff, their candidate in the runoff for Georgia’s 6th congressional district, fell short and Republican Karen Handel came out on top. Meanwhile, in the much lower-profile race for another open House seat in South Carolina’s 5th district, Democrat Archie Parnell came far closer to winning than expected in a heavily Republican territory. In the end, he lost to GOP nominee Ralph Norman. The results make Democrats 0-for-4 in the House districts vacated by...

    Party officials fear the potentially demoralizing effect of a defeat. SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Democrats are closer than they ever could have imagined to winning a House seat in the Republican suburbs of Atlanta, and dealing a resounding blow to Donald Trump. But they’re also gripped by anxiety about what happens if they fall short Tuesday. A loss in Georgia’s special election here could leave the party demoralized, with little to show for all the furious organizing, fundraising and spending in a handful of congressional special elections in the early months of the Trump administration. As a result, Democrats are...

    A new poll released by WSB-TV on Friday night showed Democrat Jon Ossoff’s lead over Karen Handel Shrink slightly in the special election to fill an open U.S. House seat in Georgia. Ossoff led Handel by 1.7 points, 49.7-48, among likely voters in the poll conducted by Landmark Communications. In the last WSB-TV/Landmark poll released last week, Ossoff led Handel by 2.5 points. The poll released on Friday surveyed 800 likely voters on June 15 with a margin of error plus or minus 3.46 percentage points.

    MARIETTA, Ga. | Chris Hummel got an unexpected Father’s Day surprise Sunday when Bikers for Trump — sporting tattoos galore, black vests and a massive flag with the group’s insignia — came to his doorstep in an Atlanta suburb and politely encouraged him to support Karen Handel in the high-profile runoff for Georgia’s empty seat in Congress. Mr. Hummel and his wife, Karen, assured Chris Cox, founder of Bikers for Trump, and the six men and women who were going door to door with him that they had voted early for Mrs. Handel over Democrat Jon Ossoff.....

    Democrat Jon Ossoff fell just short in his bid to capture the seat representing Georgia’s 6th Congressional District in a first-round knockout. Polls show a tight race, but it looks like he might have better luck in next week’s decisive Round 2. The June 20 runoff in the Georgia 6 special congressional election pits Ossoff, a former congressional aide, against Republican Karen Handel, Georgia’s former secretary of state. In the first round April 18, Ossoff won 48 percent of the vote, far more than any of the other 17 candidates but short of the 50 percent he would have needed...

    He's never held elective office and is in a tight special House election fight, but Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff has won a stunning comparison to former President John F. Kennedy by a civil rights hero and icon. To a crowd of Ossoff supporters, Georgia Rep. John Lewis made the tie about his one-time intern. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) "I've met every president since President Kennedy. And I tell you, President Kennedy young, smart and gifted. John Ossoff is young, smart and gifted," he said to cheers......

Trump's beheading by you is a God send to the Republican party and Republican candidate, Karen Handel of the Georgia 6thCD. You most likely have destroyed the political campaign of "Obama's, Jon "Pajama Boy" Ossoff" in his political race to be elected the Congressman of the Georgia, 6CD!! Mr. Ossoff will be handily defeated on June 20th, and the millions of dollars spent by Ossoff & the Democrat Party has gone for...
