    Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins ripped apart plans by House Democrats to continue investigating President Donald Trump over allegations of collusion. WATCH: “There was no collusion,” Collins said on Fox News Sunday. “I’m waiting to see the conclusions that Bill Barr is going to give us, hopefully as early as today. Then we can actually show to the American people what the investigation meant, and how far it went, and also the fact that now we can hopefully begin to move on from this two-year cloud of an investigation.” However, host Chris Wallace pushed back on Collins’ suggestion that Congress...

    Actress Alyssa Milano is going after Georgia again on Twitter, this time over the “heartbeat” abortion bill passed by the Georgia state Senate Friday afternoon. “There are over 20 productions shooting in GA” she wrote late Friday, “& the state just voted to strip women of their bodily autonomy. Hollywood! We should stop feeding GA economy.” Milano ( “Charmed,” “Project Runway All Stars”) stars in Netflix’s dark pageant comedy “Insatiable,” which debuted last year.

  • She Wasn’t Intentionally Anti-Semitic

    You might realize you have a problem when your defense from the highest elected official in your party is that pathetically lame statement. There were so many bad parts of this episode – which is not nearly over -- that they need to be illuminated now that we have a smidgeon of separation. First, let’s start with an indisputable fact: the Congresswoman from Minnesota has been and is an anti-Semite. I can’t tell you specifically why or how she became such, but she is. Anyone who says she is not is delusional. That sad defense by Speaker Pelosi was just...

    ATLANTA (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence’s visit Thursday to Atlanta included a stop at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s field office and a conversation about the “broader mission of border security.” He also blasted Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms over her decision last year to bar the city jail from holding federal immigration detainees and thanked the men and women who work for ICE. Pence highlighted some of the ICE arrests made in the area, including one Wednesday night in Riverdale, Georgia, news outlets reported. “Atlanta and Georgia are safer today because of the outstanding work of the men and...

    ATLANTA: Shortly after a Georgia Senate panel approved a proposal early Monday that would ban most abortions after six weeks, protestors erupted in chants as the bill's sponsor and those who voted in favor of the measure left the committee room. Chanting "shame" and "no safe seats" as Republican lawmakers were escorted by police to an elevator, abortion rights advocates vowed to continue to fight House Bill 481, which would outlaw abortions once a doctor detects a heartbeat in the womb. If it passes, it would be among the strictest abortion laws in the country. Current Georgia law allows abortions...

    A Georgia woman has been charged with aiding ISIS by creating a "kill list" online that included the names of both State Department employees and American soldiers, ABC News reported on Monday. Kim Anh Vo, now 20 years old, joined in 2016 ISIS’s United Cyber Caliphate, which was dedicated to carrying out online attacks and cyber intrusions against Americans, according to the indictment unsealed last week by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York. Vo, who was known as "F@ng," "Zozo" or "Miss.Bones" online, is accused of working with the UCC to recruit a minor in Norway and...

    The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, voted for the resolution calling for any final report in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to be made public, but told Fox News o“It was a political stunt by the Democrats who felt that they could divide Republicans into voting no upon it because at the end of the day after I looked at it, when they dropped it … they said this is nothing but simply a first-year law student’s restatement of what the regular regulations say that Mr. (Attorney General William) Barr is going to...

    Former Democratic gubernatorial candidates Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum this week questioned the outcomes of their 2018 gubernatorial races -- suggesting that they, rather than their Republican opponents, should be in the governor seats. Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee who lost to now-Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the state’s gubernatorial race in November, hinted on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” that both he and Abrams got enough votes to win their races, and that Abrams' may have been influenced by her opponent already being in office. “Stacey juiced as many Dems as she could out of the state...

    Georgia: Muslima assembles “kill lists” of servicemembers for group linked to the Islamic State Yet another convert to Islam somehow gets the idea that her new religion requires her to commit treason and mass murder. Authorities, as always, remain resolutely incurious about this recurring phenomenon. “Georgia woman accused of helping build ‘kill lists’ of servicemembers for ISIS-linked group,” by Jeremy Redmon, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, March 12, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): ATLANTA Ga. (Tribune News Service) — Authorities arrested a 20-year-old woman south of Augusta on Tuesday for allegedly supporting an Islamic State-linked group that has called for killing...

    Corporate powers and business groups explode in outrage each time a “religious liberty” measure surfaces in Georgia. Stacey Abrams wants to know why a bill that would outlaw most abortions isn’t triggering the same reaction. The Democrat on Tuesday called on the powerful coalition to rally against House Bill 481, which would ban most abortions as soon as doctors can detect a heartbeat – as early as six weeks. “It’s very short-sighted for the business community not to be engaged right now,” said Abrams. “Because once this bill is signed into law, that becomes the reputation of Georgia.”

    Shortened title. Full title: Abortion Activist’s Bill Would Make Men Contact Police When They “Release Sperm From Their Testicles” Missing the whole point of pro-life legislation and the basics of science, two Georgia lawmakers are planning to introduce bills that would force men to report to police when they “release sperm from their testicles” and other nonsense requirements. State Reps. Dar’shun Kendrick, of Lithonia, and Park Cannon, of Atlanta, are pro-abortion Democrats who oppose a Georgia pro-life bill that would ban abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable. In protest, they are writing bills to “highlight the differences in...

    Stacey Abrams raised the possibility of a White House run Monday in a series of social media posts and public remarks, saying that she once thought the soonest she could campaign for president was 2028 but that a bid next year is now “definitely on the table.” Abrams had previously refused to rule out a campaign for president, but her comments Monday made clear she’s considering joining the growing Democratic field to challenge President Donald Trump.

    The 268-page Bruce Ohr interview transcript provides some clarity, some comfort, but also more concerns over the handling of the Russia investigation. On Friday, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, released the transcript of the House’s August 2018 interview of Department of Justice lawyer Bruce Ohr. Ohr’s name is familiar to those following the Spygate scandal: His wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for opposition research and dissemination firm Fusion GPS. The couple also met with former British spy Christopher Steele the day before the FBI launched the Crossfire Hurricane investigation into the Donald Trump presidential...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Pelosi’s grip slips as Ocasio-Cortez and friends throw a party, leave the grandparents at homeHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and the old guard Democrats at large – are in a very difficult position. The radical young voters that Democrats have been courting for years have finally elected like-minded radical young representatives – and Pelosi, D-Calif., and her leadership team have no control over them. A big reason why, as I mentioned on “Hannity” this week, is that there is a wide generation gap between Democratic House leaders and freshmen Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New...

    “I was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act, and I will tell you, it makes a really big difference. And it doesn’t just make a difference in Alabama and Georgia; it made a difference in Wisconsin, where the best studies that have been done said somewhere between 40 [thousand] and 80,000 people were turned away from the polls because of the color of their skin, because of their age, because of whatever excuse could be made up to stop a fellow American citizen from voting.” — Former secretary of state Hillary...

    A top Democratic super PAC that spent $133 million in support of Hillary Clinton in 2016 said it no longer considers Ohio a target state for the 2020 presidential election, as it looks to align with an increasingly socialist Democratic Party. In a memo, Priorities USA, a moneyed super PAC that supported both President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and Clinton’s 2016 run for the White House, downgraded Ohio’s importance and labeled the state a “GOP Watch,” along with states such as Texas and Iowa. The PAC now sees Ohio as less likely to flip than other swing states, such...

    The Washington Post's fact-checker sharply critiqued former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her claims on Sunday concerning voter suppression in Wisconsin and Georgia in the 2016 presidential election. “Clinton made several factual errors, offered questionable claims about a couple of studies, and ended up giving a misleading assessment of her loss,” Salvador Rizzo wrote in his column. The Post gave Clinton “Four Pinocchios.” “I was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act, and I will tell you, it makes a really big difference,” Clinton said Sunday in Selma, Ala., commemorating “Bloody...
