    WaPo ^ | April 27, 2014 | E.J. Dionne Jr.
    Have we gone stark raving mad? The question is brought to mind by the gun law signed last week in Georgia by Gov. Nathan Deal. You might have thought that since the United States couldn’t possibly have more permissive firearms laws than it does now, nothing more could be done to coddle the gun lobby and tip the balance of our statutes away from law enforcement. Alas, you would be wrong. -snip- Oh yes, and while conservatives claim to hate the centralization of power, this law wipes out a series of local gun regulations. The gun supremacists just don’t trust...
  • Georgia governor to sign 'unprecedented' bill expanding gun rights

    FoxNews.com ^ | 4-23-2014 | FoxNews.com
    Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal is expected to sign legislation Wednesday expanding gun rights in the state. The bill, described by the National Rifle Association’s lobbying arm as "the most comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation introduced in recent state history," expands the scope of public places where licensed owners are allowed to carry firearms. The bill makes several changes to state law. It allows those with a license to carry to bring a gun into a bar without restriction and into some government buildings that don't have certain security measures. It also allows religious leaders to decide whether it's OK for a...

    Dear parents, teachers, preachers and voters – we need your help to stop the GOP led Common Core (CC) march into Georgia! Friends, we must STOP this CC bill in the Georgia House. House education hearings will begin next week after the GOP led Senate passes SB 167 this week. As Georgia Senator William Ligon admits, his bill DOES NOT give Georgia anything resembling a CLEAN BREAK from the Common Core standards but, it instead gives all local school districts the authority to choose to continue using CC math and/or English and Language Arts (ELA) standards or return to using...

    The Weather Channel ^ | 1/30/14 | Eric Zerkel and Chris Dolce
    In a briefing late Tuesday night, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal deflected criticism for the traffic nightmare plaguing Metro Atlanta saying in part that the crippling weather was "unexpected" and that government officials made preparations based on forecasts that called for "the majority of the effects of the storm" to be "south of here." "We have been confronted with an unexpected winter storm that has hit the metropolitan Atlanta area," the governor said.  But a timeline of winter storm watches, warnings, and advisories paints a different picture, one that shows that the governor and other government officials had nearly a day to prepare...

    The Atlanta schools cheating case is now in the hands of three local district attorneys, who must decide whether the scandal is also criminal. District attorneys in Fulton, DeKalb and Douglas counties said they are reviewing the voluminous report by state investigators and will decide whether to seek indictments. Douglas County DA David McDade said Friday he expects it will take prosecutors a considerable amount of time to reach decisions. He noted that the GBI’s investigative file in the case amasses 120 volumes. As prosecutors consider their options, scores of current and former APS educators and administrators, some at the...

    Across Atlanta Public Schools, staff worked feverishly in secret to transform testing failures into successes.Teachers and principals erased and corrected mistakes on students’ answer sheets.Area superintendents silenced whistle-blowers and rewarded subordinates who met academic goals by any means possible.Superintendent Beverly Hall and her top aides ignored, buried, destroyed or altered complaints about misconduct, claimed ignorance of wrongdoing and accused naysayers of failing to believe in poor children’s ability to learn.For years — as long as a decade — this was how the Atlanta school district produced gains on state curriculum tests. The scores soared so dramatically they brought national acclaim...

    Fox 5/WAGA-TV’s Justin Gray was blocked by state troopers from a public immigration bill signing held today by Gov. Nathan Deal at the Gold Dome. Why? Deal’s press office was angry about an unrelated, unflattering story Dale Russell had done the night before about Deal. Below is the story that upset Deal’s office. The campaign had paid $90,000 to a fund-raising company the I-Team had never heard of called Southern Magnolia Capital. Russell discovered that company was connected to Deal’s daughter in law Denise Deal. Phil Wilheit, identified in the story as Deal’s campaign manager, told Russell the transaction was...

    Gov. Nathan Deal told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday that the immigration bill adopted by the General Assembly appears to meet his criteria for necessary and needed changes. Deal said he will review the legislation, House Bill 87, to be sure, "but at least the broad parameters of what we know are there appear to be consistent with what we would be agreeable to." The General Assembly approved the sweeping, Arizona-style bill Thursday in the final hours of the 2011 legislative session. Deal said he has been consistent since his campaign last year that he would support a "balanced immigration...

    In the last 24 hours, former U.S. House speaker Newt Gingrich has touched base with several prominent Republicans in his former home state, telling them that he intends to make a run for president in 2012 using Georgia as his base – and that he already has his eye on office space in Buckhead for a campaign headquarters. Former U.S. House speaker Newt Gingrich Gingrich met on Thursday with Nathan Deal, whom Gingrich endorsed during a critical phase of last year’s Republican primary for governor. House Speaker David Ralston introduced Gingrich Thursday night at a downtown Atlanta affair hosted by...

    The campaign of Nathan Deal says the Republican nominee for governor shed “birther” attorney Orly Taitz as a Facebook friend this morning, within minutes of finding out who she was. Taitz is the infamous attorney – the term is used loosely — who has persuaded a handful of military personnel, including officers, to resist overseas deployment on the fiction that Obama is a non-citizen and thus ineligible to be president and commander-in-chief. She’s currently fighting a $20,000 fine imposed last year by a federal judge in Columbus. On Wednesday, Taitz posted the following on her web site: If you recall,...

    Just in from Karen Handel: I want to thank all of my friends, supporters, volunteers and my campaign team for a tremendous effort over the last 16 months. We ran a terrific campaign, beat the odds to come in first place in the Primary, and came so very close in the runoff election. As of this morning, we are four tenths of a percentage point behind Nathan Deal with absentee ballots and overseas military votes yet to be counted. We certainly have the option of requesting the automatic statewide recount. But we are not going to do that. The best...

    With Karen Handel conceding to Nathan Deal in the race for governor in Georgia, Newt Gingrich's possible presidential campaign should not hang in the balance. There is no way, none whatsoever, that Deal would have beaten Handel if home-state icon Gingrich had not weighed in so heavily for him. He barely squeaked past Ms. Handel. But Mr. Deal has a pending federal investigation against him. If this investigation finds Deal to have seriously erred, and it costs Georgia Republicans the governorship, it is Gingrich who should get the blame. Gingrich already has insulted conservatives not just by endorsing DeDe Scozzafava...

    Republican Karen Handel has conceded to former Rep. Nathan Deal in the Georgia runoff for governor, saying Wednesday morning it was best for the party to rally around Deal as the nominee. With only provisional ballots and military and overseas ballots uncounted, Deal held a slim lead of fewer than 2,500 votes over Handel late Tuesday evening, or a 50.2 percent to 49.8 percent advantage. While Handel could have requested a recount had the margin remained less than 1 percent, she said her campaign wouldn’t pursue that option and threw her support behind Deal. “As of this morning, we are...

    The headline could have read "Deal, Huckabee and Gingrich beat Handel, Palin, and Romney in Georgia GOP Governor Run-Off." Of course only Deal and Handel were running. Each candidate rises and falls on his or her own merits. As I posted earlier, endorsements may actually do more for or against the candidate doing the endorsing rather than the one being endorsed. But in Georgia Tuesday, Nathan Deal upset conventional wisdom and Karen Handel with a come-from-behind win in Tuesday’s run-off election. Handel lsot to Deal by only about 2500 votes after beating him handily in the primary race. Deal...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is throwing his support to former Rep. Nathan Deal’s campaign for governor of Georgia on Thursday, just five days before the Republican runoff primary that pits Deal against former Secretary of State Karen Handel. The endorsement puts Huckabee at odds with two other potential presidential candidates — former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — who have endorsed Handel, and places him in the same company as former House Speaker and Deal endorser Newt Gingrich. Deal spokesman Brian Robinson predicted that Huckabee, who won Georgia’s presidential primary in 2008, would help...

Karen Handel is that reformer.

    Quite a catch by Jason Pye–Rep. Nathan Deal (R-Ga.), who has waged a fairly under-the-radar campaign to demand President Obama’s birth certificate, was asked about it at a gubernatorial forum. Incredibly, Deal doubled down. I don’t have any issues with his birth certificate, and I really don’t think it’s really something that is an issue in the governor’s race. None of these folks serve in Congress. None of them get asked the questions that I get asked by constituents, “tell me what the status of the president’s birth certificate is.” I have simply asked the president, “tell me where I...
