    ATLANTA-Carrie Mills is a retired Atlanta Police officer with 30 years on the job - primarily in APD's drug unit. Mills is now a union rep for the International Brotherhood of Police Officers. She considers herself an expert on search warrants, particularly no knock warrants, which allows officers to enter a structure without knocking first. Mills says no-knock warrants helped close a lot of cases while she was an officer. "If we knock and announced, all evidence is going to be destroyed," Mills said. State Sen. Vincent Fort, (D-39), has announced plans to introduce a bill that would make it...

    If you're not familiar with the following website, you need to. These guys have systematically all of the data concerning the delegates and nomination process for the parties and how delegates are selected, what counts, and what doesn't count. I've reviewed the list and am currently working on an IA projection map of the caucus and potential vote but waiting until the straw poll when I can start filling in candidates. Yet, when I review the total states, I find it difficult to see how the Establishment loses if they are unopposed by other Establishment candidates. Red States for the...

    A Papa John's delivery driver in Dekalb County, Georgia is worried that she might lose her job for defending her life earlier this week against a pair of armed robbers. When a woman delivering pizzas in DeKalb County was ordered to the ground by a man with a gun, she fired back. Armed with her own gun, she shot the man Sunday night, according to police. The employee of a Columbia Drive Papa John’s wasn’t injured, her mother told Channel 2 Action News. But the woman is worried the incident could get her fired because she carried her gun for...

    The Washington Times ^ | January 12, 2015 | S.A. Miller and David Sherfinski
    House Democrats, fresh off massive election losses, say the problem is they didn’t make a bold enough case for tax increases and wealth transfer to the poor. They rectified that Monday with a speech by Rep. Chris Van Hollen proposing tax increases on the wealthy with the money going straight to tax cuts for the poor and middle class. The plan uses tax laws to encourage employee wage increases, reduce tax breaks for Wall Street and slap another fee on financial transactions. The government would dole out $1,000 tax credits for most workers and increase a slew of other tax...

    More people with low incomes now live outside of cities, and some areas are ill-equipped to deal with the influx of the poor. NORCROSS, Ga.—Every weekday around 3:15 p.m., a big, yellow school bus stops on Pelican Drive outside Norcross Extended Stay, near the intersection with Best Friend Drive. Dozens of children file out, carrying their heavy backpacks away from the Wendy’s and the AutoZone, towards the cluster of aging three-story yellow buildings where they live. Some are met by waiting parents, others trek by themselves to the shabby motel rooms, marching past broken-down cars, their tires flat, scattered around...

McCollom called 911 saying he accidentally shot his wife, Margaret McCollom, with his service weapon, according to Sherry Lang, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman.

    McDonald’s and its franchisees illegally retaliated against employees for participating in union-related activities, the National Labor Relations Board’s top lawyer alleged Friday in a case with sweeping industry implications. NLRB general counsel Richard Griffin announced Friday he will issue 13 complaints involving 78 charges against franchises and McDonald’s USA, LLC. Though many of these alleged labor violations were committed by independent franchise owners, Griffin ruled earlier this year that McDonald’s can be held liable for those actions as a so-called joint employer, leaving the corporatrion — and potentially other franchisors — exposed to such claims. McDonald’s said the decision will...

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is lamenting the end of “The Colbert Report,” saying it’s a “loss for ‘truthiness’ advocates across America.” The Comedy Central series ends its run Thursday night. Host Stephen Colbert is poised to take the reins at CBS’s “The Late Show,” when David Letterman retires next year. The House minority leader appeared in a sketch earlier this month with Colbert, who plays a faux cable news host on the show. Pelosi stretched her acting muscles as a wheelie-popping bike cop who preached safety to Colbert and Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.).

But that’s exactly where they found themselves when their toddler was seriously injured by a SWAT team, also leaving them with a $1 million medical bill they have no hope of paying. “They messed up,” Alecia Phonesavanh told ABC News' "20/20." “They had a faulty search warrant. They raided the wrong house.” In the spring of 2014, the Phonesavanh’s home in Janesville, Wisconsin, was destroyed by fire. Homeless with four young children, they packed one of their last remaining...

Like so many rash decisions that feel like destiny, young Alexis Waller figured it was the only way she could reunite with a boy she met while vacationing two years earlier. They had been communicating ever since, she told KARK. So Waller gathered up the cash her grandmother kept in a sock drawer and quietly left their Bryant home after nightfall. Unsure where to go, she walked to a nearby gas station and convinced a stranger to take her...

Lawmakers took a break in their intrigue long enough to send Obama legislation that provides funds for the government to remain open until Wednesday at midnight, easing concerns of a shutdown. A separate, $1.1 trillion long-term funding bill remained in limbo.

    The cromnibus had an unlikely savior Thursday afternoon in the form of a lame-duck lawmaker who used to raise reindeer. Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), who lost his primary earlier this year, was originally among the conservative Republicans who voted against the rule. Without the help of Democrats, Republicans could only lose 17 of their own to pass the rule, which sets up floor debate for the underlying "cromnibus" spending bill. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) intervened once there were 18 Republican defectors — and not a single Democrat voting "yes." Many Democrats will vote against the government spending measure because they...

Is the tribe most likely associated with these pots the Kasihta/Cussetta Creek Indians whose migration legends strongly suggest an origin in west Mexico, likely the state of Colima which is also known for similar dog effigy pots? Did the Kasihta raise Chihuahuas for food which they fattened up for this purpose as depicted by the pots and as recorded by early Spanish eye-witness accounts? Finally, does this evidence...

Responding on CNN in the minutes after it ended, Gingrich opined that it was wrong for the President to go against the incoming Congress as it had “repudiated his policies in the election” a few weeks ago.

In an interview Thursday just hours before Obama announced his plan to give legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants through executive action, Carter explained it was the right move but suggested it should have happened sooner. "President Obama has worked as well as he can with a recalcitrant House of Representatives," Carter said on MSNBC's “Ronan Farrow Daily” show in an interview that aired Friday afternoon....

    On one level it’s been entertaining to watch the College Board scramble to defend its radical new Advanced Placement U.S. History (APUSH) Framework. When the public can see the truth merely by going to the College Board website and reading the Framework, it’s certainly a challenge to prove that the document isn’t what it clearly is – a leftist polemic that presents American history in a relentlessly negative light. An unfortunate recent performance by College Board vice-president Trevor Packer before a Georgia House study committee suggests that the College Board team is cracking under the strain.

Georgia Democrat Hank Johnson recently told the media that Executive Amnesty will someday be viewed in the same historical context, if not lauded with equal adulation, as the Emancipation Proclamation. Excuse me? How does pardoning millions of trespassers, those who defiantly broke the law, equate to freeing millions who were brought here as cargo and left to languish and die under the vile auspices of slavery? How utterly myopic, insulting, and yes, detached from any sense of reality or decency! Is it therefore of any surprise this same cultist proclaimed that Barack...

    Council members in Rossville unanimously passed two ordinances Monday night -- one to forbid abortion clinics within Rossville city limits, and one to help keep "pill mills" out of the city. In a work meeting before they would sign the ordinances, council members asked Rossville Mayor Teddy Harris what had prompted these two ordinances to come up. He said a town resident had come to him asking if the methadone clinic in the city was legal. That clinic is, but Harris said the question got him thinking about other businesses they might wish to keep outside of Rossville. He said...

    The Republican Jewish Coalition ^ | November 5, 2014 | Shari Hillman
    The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) offers our warmest congratulations to the Jewish Republicans who won their races yesterday in the important election of 2014. We are especially delighted that Lee Zeldin won his congressional race in New York’s first district, making him the Jewish Republican in the 114th U.S. Congress. We are also pleased that the Jewish Republicans in state offices around the country won their reelections. Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens, Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel, South Dakota State Senator Dan Lederman, Texas State Representative and House Speaker Joe Straus and Texas State Representative Craig Goldman all won reelection....

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Liberal MSNBC contributor Jimmy Williams said the “old white people” in the South who vote Republican are “going to die someday” and hopefully usher in a new era of Democratic rule in the region. Host Krystal Ball, a former failed Democratic congressional candidate, asked Williams whether white Southerners should just be written off by the party, but Williams said never, saying that since they are “for people” and Republicans aren’t, they would eventually win the day. “Mitt Romney only won South Carolina with 53 [percent], John McCain with 52,” he said. “That’s a changing South. Those old white people? They’re...

    Also, results at Politico.... with 70 % county reports, including 50% totals in Dekalb and Fulton (heavy democrat), we have Perdue at 57% and Nunn at 41%. (997,236 for Perdue, 720,071 for Nunn) I expect it to tighten, but it has been 57% to 41% all evening, and with the 50% reporting-in of two heavy liberal enclaves, I would have expected a much more tight race. I'm starting to think Perdue will win without needing a runoff. Governor results are very similar.

And Republicans are looking to hold firm, maintaining their firewall among Southern white voters who have grown more and more Republican in recent years.</p>

  • Latest Democratic coping mechanism: You’re all a bunch of racists

    Let’s engage in a thought experiment. If Republicans were so terrified of impending electoral losses that they resorted to rallying pro-life voters by distributing mailers via surrogates that warned of forcible, government mandated abortion in the wake of a Democratic victory, the political press would be scandalized. The flipside of that scenario, Democrats embracing the caustic and dangerous notion that a Republican takeover of the Senate would herald a return to Jim Crow and state-supported racial violence, has not similarly incensed the Fourth Estate. In fact, a few of the more partisan political observers in the media see some merit...

    One of the few bits of bad news for Republicans over the last couple of months was the Georgia Senate race, where the Democrat, Michelle Nunn, pulled into a tie with the Republican, David Perdue, after a 2005 deposition was revealed in which Mr. Perdue said that he was proud of his record of outsourcing. But most polls over the last week or so show Mr. Perdue retaking a lead, with Ms. Nunn now trailing by about two or three percentage points. Mr. Perdue’s gains come from white voters. He now leads Ms. Nunn by about 40 percentage points among...
  • Why isn’t Mary Landrieu smart enough to play the race card properly?

    ‘Mary had a little scam To fleece the voters’ views And everywhere her campaign went Her race scam made the news.’ Most of us are dumbstruck by the over-exploitation of the race card by Democrats. Their exaggerated playing of the race card is incredibly cliched and worn out. Do they really think that voters are gullible enough to swallow their hokum? Do they really believe that the intellects of American voters are that small? If I were a black voter I would be incensed that Democratic candidates assume that I was boneheaded enough to fall for these idiotic racial accusations....
