    A 79-year-old homeowner in Georgia reportedly fired off two shots during an attempted home invasion earlier this month. The actions taken by the unidentified woman to ward off the intruder before responders could arrive at her residence on Feb. 12 were captured on her 911 call, ABC News reported Wednesday. In the midst of the alleged break-in, the woman shouted to the suspect, “I got something for you” before shooting a weapon, according to ABC News. She later reportedly fired off a second shot after the individual managed to get inside and up to another floor of her home. "I'm...

    When former astronaut Mark Kelly said last week he would run as a Democrat to try to unseat a sitting Republican U.S. senator in Arizona, the news sent liberal activists scrambling to try to come up with a candidate of their own. Left-wing groups urged Rep. Ruben Gallego, a vocal member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, to join the race to give liberals a more palatable option as they prepare for 2020. Across the country, those same liberal groups are eyeing next year’s elections with anticipation, hoping to prove that stunning primary season upsets in 2018, such as freshman Rep....
  • Stacey Abrams and her ZOMBIE ARMY

    02/05/2019 11:35:58 PM PST · by Jeff Chandler · 25 replies
    Stacey Abrams gave the Democrat Party rebuttal to President Trump’s State of the Union speech last night. The content was predictable and the delivery reasonably competent, but the interesting aspect of the speech was the decision to green screen Abrams and project her image onto video of a nebulous audience, which were apparently standing in a studio in another location, giving the broadcast a weird Photoshopped aura. Compounding his mistake, the director kept the audience image blurred, so that they seemed to loom ominously behind Ms. Abrams, freedom-eating zombies waiting to pounce. Maybe the Democrat Party should get some help...

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was once again reminded that she exaggerated her Native American ancestry and was heckled during a campaign stop in Georgia. While introducing herself to a crowd of about 1,000 supporters in a Lawrenceville high school, a man shouted “Why did you lie?" Warren replied back “Be easy, be easy,” while the crowd chanted her name and clapped. The man was holding up a campaign sign that read “1/2020” as he was quickly escorted out of the building. Warren released DNA results examining her possible Native American ancestry last year in response to criticism...

    On Friday's New Day show, CNN co-host John Berman allowed Georgia Democratic Congresswoman Lucy McBath to mislead viewers on a proposed new gun law being considered in Congress as she claimed it would require background checks when purchasing from "licensed" gun dealers. In reality, licensed gun dealers are already required to conduct background checks, and the purpose of the new law is to require private sellers who are unlicensed to also conduct such checks. Berman also brought up the issue of President Donald Trump declaring a national emergency to justify building more border security barriers than Congress will authorize as...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez travelling under the guise of (D-NY). “The radical Left’s Green New Deal is alarming. It is nothing more than an excuse to drive our nation towards Socialism.

    It has been a busy year. We sold our place in Georgia, have been banging away at some short-fused client work, moved to Tennessee, and are in the middle of scouting the location for our new facilities. Been too busy to write much, but wanted to take some time for a long-overdue introduction to Miles Mathis, an interesting guy who came to my attention about three years ago.For those of you who haven’t heard of Miles, here’s a warning: take everything you read about him on the web with a grain of salt. Instead, if thinking-out-of-the-box science and culture are...

    CLAYTON CO., GA (WSB/CNN) - An Atlanta-area school district says it is investigating after a teacher got into a fight with a high school student. The altercation was captured on cell phone video. The video shows a football coach at Charles R. Drew High School punching a student in class Friday. The teen's legal guardian, Yaquanda Lucas, called it hard to watch. The coach's face is blurred in the footage because he hasn't been charged with a crime. "That didn't look like restraining him to me, it looked like you beat my child," Lucas said. She says she's the godmother...

    She’s a female minority who can’t be held politically accountable for anything because she doesn't hold any office.......There is no other person on the national scene who enjoys more privilege among the national press than Abrams, who lost her bid for Georgia governor last year and refused to accept the result long after the writing was already on the wall. Even if she botches the response on Tuesday, Abrams will still be a hero for having taken on white male Trump. That's because she can expect the national media to frame the conflict as an epic battle between white and...

    Many people believe that nationalism and democracy are antithetical, Dimitry Savvin says; but the only successful transitions in East Europe and the former Soviet space from occurred where nationalism reinforced democratic ideas. The same thing will be true for a free Russia or such a state will not exist. The émigré Russian nationalist says, the success stories in the former communist region have been Poland, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Georgia, in each of which democracy and nationalism reinforced one another. In these cases, Savvin continues, “nationalist ideology, in sync with anti-communism and an orientation toward Euro-Atlantic...

    Conservatives warned the White House on Wednesday against striking a deal with California’s two Democratic senators to water down President Trump’s judicial picks for the West Coast’s federal appeals court. Sen. David Perdue, a Georgia Republican close to Mr. Trump, said he will call and try to scuttle the negotiations, reported by The Wall Street Journal, that would have the White House pick one conservative, one consensus nominee and one liberal nominee for three openings on the already liberal U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. “Why do we need to do a deal? This is totally within our purview. We...

    A University of Georgia (UGA) teaching assistant wrote Wednesday on Facebook that "some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom." He added that to suggest otherwise is "ahistorical and dangerously naive." UGA philosophy TA Irami Osei-Frimpong made the comment during a conversation on the Overheard at UGA Facebook page. The comment has since been deleted. Osei-Frimpong claimed in May 2017 that Facebook suspended him for quoting from an article which detailed how Texas A&M professor Tommy Curry had said "in order to be equal, in order to...

    Stacey Abrams will deliver the Democratic response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address next week, giving the former gubernatorial candidate one of the nation’s most prominent pulpits as she considers whether to run for U.S. Senate in 2020. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters he asked her to deliver the address, which will air shortly after Trump finishes his address to a joint session of Congress next week, because “she has led the charge for voting rights, which is at the root of just about everything else.” The speech will be a pivotal moment for Abrams,...
