    Top Senate Republicans are warning Rep. Doug Collins that running against Sen. Kelly Loeffler in Georgia’s special Senate primary could pave the way for an otherwise unlikely Democratic sweep in the state in November. ”The shortsightedness in this decision is stunning. Doug Collins’ selfishness will hurt David Perdue, Kelly Loeffler, and President Trump," National Republican Senatorial Committee Executive Director Kevin McLaughlin said in a statement. Collins, a Trump ally and part of his impeachment defense team, announced his Senate candidacy on Wednesday. He was passed over for an appointment to the Senate by Gov. Brian Kemp after Johnny Isakson resigned...

  • Georgia ordered to scrap old voting machines after 2019

    A federal judge on Thursday ordered Georgia to stop using its outdated voting machines after this year and to be ready with hand-marked paper ballots if its new system isn’t in place for the presidential primaries. US District Judge Amy Totenberg’s 153-page ruling Thursday is not a complete victory for either side. A federal lawsuit filed by election integrity advocates and individual Georgia voters argues that the paperless touchscreen voting machines Georgia has used since 2002 are unsecure, vulnerable to hacking and can’t be audited. They have been seeking statewide use of hand-marked paper ballots. A law passed this year...

    On Friday morning, at 2:50 a.m. on the 7th of June, 2019, a home invasion by a young man did not turn out as expected.  The owner heard him banging on the door and breaking the window glass. After the invader gained entry to the home and was advancing upstairs, the homeowner shot “in the general direction” of the invader, Jayven Jackson, 18 years of age. The homeowner used a rifle and fired multiple shots, hitting Jackson in the legs and/or feet.  The police spokesperson said he was shot twice, as I understood his answer in the press conference. ...

    A clerk at Xhale City vape shop in Tucker, Atlanta went absolutely ballistic after a customer wearing a Trump t-shirt walked into the establishment. The pro-Trump customer was denied service and asked to leave the store while the vape shop employee accused him of being a “racist motherf*cker.” A black man was also standing in front of the counter watching it all go down and it was all caught on video. “If you do not stop recording in my store, I’m going to call the police and ask you to leave,” the triggered employee said.

    Only 24% of precincts reporting so far (8:30 pm, EST), and the honest (er, republican) precincts will be least likely to have vote and absentee ballots fraud (er, over-counts and recounts and illegal counts), but the Republican is ahead 64% to 36%. Less important, the other race for Public Service Commission, the republican is also ahead by the same margin. Makes sense, there will be almost no ticket splitting in this runoff.

    Kudos to Jake Tapper. On his State of the Union CNN show this morning, not only did Tapper raise with Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams the legislation she introduced as a member of the Georgia legislature that would have forced Georgians to surrender their "assault weapons." Tapper then twice pressed Abrams on it as she tried to dance away. Abrams's weasel word of the day: "conversation." No fewer than five times Abrams claimed she was merely trying to start a "conversation" on the subject. Sorry, Ms. Abrams: when you introduce legislation, you're not merely starting a conversation. You're expressing...

    In Georgia, a red and pro-gun rights state, Abrams’ past anti-gun history should energize Republican voters, especially gun rights voters, since she has supported AR-15 bans and gun confiscation in the past. This election will be a test to see if the Atlanta region is what’s going to carry the state, and if its Democratic power base is enough to overwhelm the deep red rural counties around it. What’s even more disconcerting is Abrams saying that support for these unconstitutional policies were just a way to start a conversation. She said this to CNN’s Jake Tapper this morning. Earlier this...

A complaint filed by the girl's mother alleges the child had gone to the bathroom, and the boy had been able to follow her because he identified as gender fluid and was, under school policy, allowed to be there. The mother, Pascha Thomas, further alleges when she made a complaint to the...
