    A group of college students is working together with lawmakers and communities to try to make the route to locations throughout the southeast a little shorter by using Interstate 14 to connect Killeen, Texas, with Columbus, Georgia. The idea started when Frank Lumpkin was in high school, taking part in Youth Leadership Columbus. While taking part in the class, he said he realized that the city needed more infrastructure to succeed, and he said he has been working on the project ever since. “From the moment I saw this robust transportation network that linked the southern military instillations, would address...

    At Evans Tool & Die, a family-owned toolmaking and stamping business in Conyers, Georgia, employees have always come first. “Generosity is one of our core values,” explained Dee Barnes, President and CEO of Evans Tool & Die. “We’ve always shared profit with our employees, and we have always given bonuses each year.

    FULL TITLE: Two Miami Dolphins wide receivers become first players of 2018 season to take the knee during national anthem, just hours after Trump blamed the sport's poor TV ratings on the ongoing protest President Donald Trump is slamming the National Football League for low ratings and blaming players for protesting during the national anthem as two Miami Dolphins players took to the knee Sunday during 'The Star Spangled Banner' as football season began in earnest. 'Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad last year comparison. Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a...

    Association of Mature American Citizens ^ | September 7, 2018 | Outside Contributor
    Democratic Party power-player Steve Phillips is behind the rise of four potential far-left governors who have already won their primaries. The San Francisco attorney is a mega-wealthy self-identified student of “Marx, Mao, and Lenin” directing huge resources into socialist and communist-led groups, with the goal of putting his personal far-left proteges into governor’s mansions in Maryland, Georgia, Florida, and Arizona. Phillips and his partners in the highly secretive group Democracy Alliance hope that by electing far-left governors into four currently Republican-led states, the drive to impeach President Donald Trump and destroy his “Make America Great Again” agenda will be accelerated....

    A Kennesaw State University student has filed a lawsuit accusing university and elected officials of violating her civil rights during a dispute over her decision and other cheerleaders to kneel during the national anthem at football games last year to protest police brutality and racial discrimination. Tommia Dean, a sophomore, said in her complaint, filed Wednesday, that the officials conspired against the cheerleaders by keeping them off the field during the anthem after the first protest. She accused two elected officials, Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren and state Rep. Earl Ehrhart, R-Powder Springs, of attempting to stop the protests because...

    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...

    OPERATION RESCUE ^ | August 31, 2018 | Cheryl Sullenger
    It was March 21, 2008, when a 23-year old woman known only as S.M. walked into the Summit Medical Association abortion facility in Atlanta, Georgia, for an abortion in her sixth month of pregnancy. She would never return to her home or family. Tyrone Cecil Malloy conducted her 25-week dismemberment abortion. Records show that during her abortion, Malloy lacerated her cervix, then repaired it with stitches. But that wasn’t the only injury he inflicted on his patient. Records show that Malloy either did not know or ignored the fact that he had perforated her uterus and stabbed her intestine causing...
  • Old-School Eulogy at Aretha Franklin Funeral Ignites Wrath

    09/01/2018 3:45:02 AM PDT · by Cecily · 45 replies
    A fiery, old-school eulogist at the funeral of Aretha Franklin fell flat for many in the crowd and prompted a social media uproar when he declared "black America has lost its soul," black women are incapable of raising sons alone and the Black Lives Matter movement is unfounded in the face of black-on-black crime. And that was just 26 minutes into the nearly 50 minutes of words provided by the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. of Salem Baptist Church in Atlanta as Franklin's marathon funeral wound down Friday. Williams, who also eulogized Franklin's father, minister and civil rights activist C.L. Franklin,...

    Tuesday’s primaries show there’s no doubt the Democratic Party is lurching to the left. The last time Florida Democrats won the state’s governorship was in 1994. With GOP Gov. Rick Scott leaving office to run for U.S. Senate, Democratic Party leaders were determined to nominate a candidate who could appeal to centrists. They recruited former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, the daughter of a popular former governor and U.S. senator, who had won support from business in the past. But in a major upset, Graham lost the gubernatorial primary to Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who had the endorsement of Bernie Sanders...

    ATLANTA Georgia's Democratic candidate for governor told more than 1,000 attendees at the party's state convention Saturday that Democrats' fate in November rests with people who don't usually vote. "In the areas of town we pass by and write off because no one there votes; we've gotta stop the car and go back," Stacey Abrams told the crowd in Atlanta. Driving turnout was a major theme of the event and has long been a staple for Abrams in her bid to become Georgia's first Democratic governor in 15 years and the nation's first-ever black female state chief executive. "We need...

    WRAL-TV ^ | August 27, 2018 | Greg Bluestein, Cox Newspapers
    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...

"As you go through life, you meet few truly great people," Schumer said in a statement. "John McCain was one of them. His dedication to his country and the...

    Several weeks ago, an article in the Hebrew-language Yediot Achronot revealed that, according to Palestinian sources, Hamas and Islamic Jihad have received more than $100 million per year over the last few years from Iran. That represents a substantial fraction of the cash that President Barack Obama put on pallets and flew to Tehran shortly before he left office. Today it was announced that two Iranians had been indicted for spying in the United States for the Iranian government. What were they looking at? Missile bases? Nuclear reactors? Grand Central Station? No. They were indicted for taking pictures of “Israeli...
