    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.

    Appearing on MSNBC Thursday morning to defend Democrat Stacey Abrams’ refusal to concede the race for governor in Georgia and hurl accusations of voter suppression against Republican Brian Kemp, Abrams campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo touted support from disgraced former CBS News anchor Dan Rather and MSNBC’s own Joe Scarborough. . . "GROH-WARGO: And that is a very clear effort really exposing these issues. Because here’s the deal, whatever happens with our campaign, we’ve got to fix the system here in Georgia."
  • Tapper Presses Georgia's Abrams on Gun-Control Legislation, She Claims 'Conversation'

    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 a video posted on the group’s Facebook page on Saturday, members of the Black Panther Party are seen marching through the West End neighborhood of Atlanta in support of Stacey Abrams gubernatorial campaign. As they marched, the Black Panthers carried assault rifles and continually shouted slogans such as “black power” and “power to the people.”
  • GA GOV: Democrat On Support For Gun Confiscation: It Was Just A Way To Start A Conversation

    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...

    FULL TITLE: School district's toilet policy under investigation after 'girl, five, was molested in the bathroom by a gender fluid student' The Department of Education's Civil Rights division is investigating after a five-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by a boy in her class in November last year. 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...

    Shame on Georgia's Medical Swamp Contact: Genevieve Wilson, Georgia Right to Life, 770-339-6880 NORCROSS, Ga., Aug. 31, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) today slammed the Georgia Composite Medical Board for its outrageous and immoral decision to reinstate the medical license for disgraced late-term abortionist Tyrone C. Malloy. "This is a flagrant example of the medical community circling the wagons to protect their own despite patients' safety," said GRTL President Ricardo Davis. "If they're going to put cronyism above ethics they don't deserve to hold this critical position." Davis called on Governor Deal to immediately demand all...

    Judge Kimberly Adams In May of 2017, Governor Nation Deal signed a Campus Carry bill into law in Georgia.  In September of that year, six college professors filed a lawsuit against Governor Deal and Georgia AG Chris Carr. The professors alleged the State did not have the authority to regulate the university system. From 11alive.com: “Whether firearms on campuses help or hinder the cause of creating a safe and secure learning environment is, to be sure, a subject of intense debate,” the lawsuit said. “Reasonable minds can and do differ on this issue, but this case is not about...

    Former state Rep. Geoff Duncan appears to have pulled off an upset win against state Sen. David Shafer, narrowly securing the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor. According to unofficial results from Secretary of State’s office, Duncan won by less than one percent of the vote. The Cumming Republican held Shafer off in an extremely close race – one that Shafer almost won outright with nearly 50 percent of the vote in the May primary in what was then a three-way race. Duncan, who served in the state House for five years, ran a campaign as an underdog outsider, often referring...

    A kind-hearted Deputy was rewarded with a potentially deadly attack in Dawson County, Georgia on December fifth, about 2:40 P.M.  Sargent Randy Harkness has been with the Dawson County Sheriff's office for more than 23 years.  He gave a courtesy ride to Justin Alan Foster to the local Chevron station. He was in the process of providing some personal charity to Foster in the form of a small cash gift, when Foster attacked him.  From fox5atlanta.com:Foster then fled across the road to the McDonald’s parking lot where he assaulted an elderly woman. Additional “good Samaritans” at the McDonald’s detained...

    A Georgia family is under fire for allowing a seventh grader to wear a T-shirt that mocked liberal news network CNN on a school field trip to CNN’s Atlanta headquarters -- but the boy's parents think the school violated the First Amendment by making their son take it off. Nancy and Stan Jester, of Dekalb, are both local elected officials, she a county commissioner and he is a member of the local school board. Their son, seventh-grader Jaxon, wore a shirt mocking the CNN logo as “FNN” with the caption, “Fake News Network.”

    A group of Georgia voters and a Colorado-based watchdog organization filed a lawsuit late Monday asking a judge to overturn the results of last month's 6th Congressional District special election and scrap the state's voting system, Colorado Politics has learned. The complaint, filed in Fulton County Superior Court, alleges that state and local election officials ignored warnings for months that Georgia's centralized election system — already known for potential security flaws and lacking a paper trail to verify results — had been compromised and left unprotected from intruders since at least last summer, casting doubt on Republican Karen Handel's 3.8-point...

    Knives are arms protected by the Second Amendment. In American history, knives have been banned as often, perhaps more so, than firearms have.The concealed carry of knives have been banned, along with firearms. The possession and carry of knives have been regularily banned and forbidden by the states. In Montana, Constitutional carry for knives was achieved on 21 April, 2017.Montana law treated knives with a blade of more than 4 inches the same as firearms in their concealed carry statute. It is legal to carry concealed weapons in most of Montana, without a permit, except inside city limits.  The...

The NRA Annual Meeting was in Atlanta this year. Perhaps the stellar performance of NRA Meeting attendees helped Governor Deal in his decision. Crime tends to drop when 80,000 NRA members show up in town. The meeting was widely publicized.From the office of Governor Deal at Georgia.gov: Gov. Nathan Deal today signed HB 280, which permits weapons carry license holders to carry firearms in specific...

    I drove to the NRA Meeting in Atlanta yesterday, the 26th of April, 2017.  I had been visiting family in Dallas, Texas, so it was only 800 miles. On the way, I reflected on the last time I was in Atlanta for more than a flight change. It was over 40 years ago, when I was in the Army. What happened then was not important. But what has happened in the last 40 years has been phenomenal for Second Amendment Supporters. In 1974, the Gun Control Act of 1968 was only six years old. It had not been improved...

    Democrat Congressional Candidate and Georgia darling, Jon Ossoff paid human smugglers operating across Europe approximately $2,000. Everyday we learn more and more about this young Democrat who was foisted onto Georgians by outside money. We also just reported that Ossoff didn’t vote in the 2012 election. He claims he couldn’t vote because he was abroad. Yeah ok, makes sense! Someone who was involved in human smuggling shouldn’t be able to run for office, but since he’s a Democrat, this will probably get swept under the rug.
