  • Reality Check: Apparently You’re Sexist, Even If You Vote For a Woman

    This week, Karen Handel became the first Republican woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from the great state of Georgia. She beat out her male Democratic opponent for the seat in the most expensive House race in U.S. history, shattering all kinds of glass ceilings in the process. But according to liberal feminist writer Jill Filipovic, you’re a toxic and vindictive person if you voted for her. Yep. Instead of being happy that a woman won a seat in Congress, Filipovic actually called Handel’s voters “hateful white people” because they didn’t elect the straight white man. Why? Because...

    In the first round of the special election for the House seat in Georgia's Sixth District, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff swept 48 percent. He more than doubled the vote of his closest GOP rival, Karen Handel. A Peach State pickup for the Democrats and a huge humiliation for President Trump seemed at hand. But in Tuesday's final round, Ossoff, after the most costly House race in history, got 48 percent again, and lost. If Democratic donors are grabbing pitchforks, who can blame them? And what was Karen Handel's cutting issue? Ossoff lived two miles outside the district and represented the values...

    Despite the opposition Trump has galvanized, the Democrats still haven’t figured out how to win in the places where they’re trying to stage a comeback. ATLANTA—Around midnight, hours after their candidate conceded he had lost the Most Important Special Election in History, the last remaining supporters of Jon Ossoff took over the stage where he had recently stood. One of them waved a bottle of vodka in the air. Together, they took up the time-honored leftist chant: “This is what democracy looks like!” Sometimes, this is indeed what democracy looks like: you get outvoted. Democrats were counting on Ossoff, the...

    GEORGIA, June 20, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Republican Karen Handel beat pro-abortion John Ossoff Tuesday in a runoff election for Georgia's sixth congressional district, which was vacated when President Trump appointed former Rep. Tom Price to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. CNN called the election for Handel at 10:06 p.m. As of 10:09 p.m., Handel is winning 52.5-47.5. The DJ at Ossoff's election night party cued "I Will Survive," CNN reported. Handel, a Republican, and Ossoff, a Democrat, were the top two candidates in the initial special election in April 2017. Handel is the author of Planned Bullyhood, which...

    The Democrats just blew $30 million on the most expensive congressional race in history and all they have to show for it is a lousy participation trophy. Perhaps the Democrats would have been better off using that money to erect a temple to the Weather Gods. A frustrated Eric Levitz at New York magazine makes the case that the "Weather Gods" seemed to have been conspiring against Jon Ossoff in the June 20 special election in the Sixth Congressional District in Georgia. Fifty minutes before the polls closed for that election, Levitz noted how perfectly the weather aligned against Ossoff...

    Tired of winning yet?: There were lots of long faces at CNN last night. They and the rest of the fake national news media spent the last two months telling all of us that the Georgia House District 6 race, in which their fake polls showed Democrat Pajama Boy leading Republican Karen Handel, would become “a referendum on President Donald Trump”, who won the traditionally Republican district by just 2% of the vote last November. Ms. Handel, of course, won last night’s election easily, as all the polls that just a week ago predicted an easy win for Pajama Boy...

    Republican Karen Handel staved off a furious challenge from Democrat Jon Ossoff on Tuesday in a race to represent a suburban Atlanta seat in Congress, as the GOP and President Donald Trump avoided an embarrassing defeat in the most expensive U.S. House contest in history. A former Georgia secretary of state, Handel emphasized her experience and roots in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to defeat Ossoff and keep a seat that’s long been held by Republicans in GOP hands. She becomes Georgia’s first female Republican member of the U.S. House.....

    Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff are tied — just one week before the runoff election in the hotly contested race for a House seat from Georgia, a new poll conducted for WXIA television in Atlanta revealed. Here are the poll highlights: Forty-seven percent support Handel and another 47 percent back Ossoff. Six percent are still undecided. Ninety-one percent of those who voted for President Donald Trump support Handel. Ninety-four percent of those who voted for Hillary Clinton back Ossoff. Ninety-seven percent of "very" conservative voters support Handel. "The findings underscore the fact that this race really comes down...

    Candidate struck dumb by opponent's question. Would that not strike you as a dramatic moment in a political debate? You probably would agree and so do most media outlets that reported on the June 6 debate between Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff running in the June 20 special election for Georgia's 6th Congressional District. In fact, many reports headlined the moment that Ossoff was asked by Handel who he would vote for in that election. Mediaite was among the outlets that featured that debate moment by observing that Karen Handel Silences Jon Ossoff With One Simple Question During Congressional Debate:

    Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff struggled through a brutal four minutes in Georgia’s special election debate Tuesday night after Republican Karen Handel called him out for not living in the district he is hoping to represent. As part of the debate format, the candidates were given the opportunity to ask each other questions. Handel turned to Ossoff and asked him a question he couldn’t answer: who he was going to vote for in the special election. As someone who lives outside the district, Ossoff is unable to cast a vote for himself. It went downhill from there for Ossoff. After...

    WASHINGTON — A Republican Super PAC has found a new way to target Democratic candidates: Kathy Griffin. A new ad uses the controversial comedian to criticize Democrat Jon Ossoff, saying her recent controversial actions are part of a pattern of behavior from “liberal extremists” who now support the House candidate running in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. Griffin drew widespread condemnation this week when she was pictured holding a fake severed head made to look like President Donald Trump. The head was covered in fake blood. “Now a celebrity Jon Ossoff supporter is making jokes about beheading the president of the...

    During Wednesday’s White House briefing, NBC reporter Hallie Jackson asked if President Trump was “expending too much political capital on a race that Republicans should be winning easily,” referring to Georgia’s special congressional election. In response, Press Secretary Sean Spicer blasted the absurd liberal media narrative that it was a “symbolic” or “emotional” victory for Democrats despite their candidate falling short. "“I thought that some of the coverage was a little intriguing as I watched it....Democrats went all in on this race. They spent over $8.3 million. They said on the record that their goal was to win this race....

    President Trump on Wednesday morning blasted Democrats for "failing" to win Georgia's House special election the night before, framing the upcoming runoff election as a battle between the state and outside interests. "Dems failed in Kansas and are now failing in Georgia," the president tweeted Wednesday. "Great job Karen Handel! It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th." . . . The race drew intense outside attention, with a number of celebrities donating to Ossoff's campaign.

    But beating him in the June 20 runoff won't be easy for Republican Karen Handel. Of course the boss has taken a great interest in this race since he lives in the area and knows Tom Price so well. I’ve taken only a passing interest in it, as much because of the creep factor evident in Democrat Jon Ossoff as anything else. If Ossoff manages to somehow grab Price’s old congressional seat in a district that Romney won by 23 points in 2012, but that Trump won by only 1 point in 2016, you know perfectly well what the media...

    The most competitive special Congressional election yet has arrived, and we will be providing returns live tonight right here. In addition to our district-wide totals, we will be analyzing county and precinct level returns. For the Democrats, the hope is that Jon Ossoff can pull out an outright win tonight- if he gets over 50% of the vote in this crowded field, he’s in as the district’s new Representative in Congress. If he falls short, then he will face off against one of four likely Republican opponents in a runoff on June 20th: Karen Handel, Bob Gray, Judson Hill, or...

    Republicans are becoming increasingly concerned about their ability to hang on to former Republican congressman Tom Price's seat here in a wealthy, suburban district where restive Democratic energy has been surging since November's election. Democratic hopes rest on Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old former congressional staffer and preternaturally on-message candidate. He has raised a whopping $8.3 million for the special election to replace Price in Georgia's 6th Congressional District - more than anyone has ever collected to win this seat, which has not been represented by a Democrat for nearly four decades.
