    Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton blamed voter suppression for her 2016 loss, and threw her support behind claims made by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams regarding the 2018 Georgia governor race. "You can run the best campaign, you can have the best plans, you can get the nomination, you can win the popular vote. And you can lose the Electoral College and therefore the election for these four reasons. Number one, voter suppression," Clinton said Tuesday an "In Defense of Democracy" event at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. "We saw what happened in Georgia where Stacey Abrams should...

    Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams is helping launch a “Majority Rules” initiative that aims to equip and mobilize more than two million women for political activism, reports said. Abrams, a runner-up in last year’s gubernatorial race in Georgia, told an audience in Atlanta on Sunday that she does not follow the rules. “As women, we are taught there are certain rules we have to follow. We are taught that it’s our responsibility to meekly accept the outcome and to trust the rules as they were written down. I don’t,” she said.

    Tuesday while delivering the keynote address at the Defense of Democracy Conference at Georgetown University former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said Stacey Abrams should be governor of Georgia. Abrams lost the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election to Brian Kemp. Clinton said, “Number one, voter suppression. We saw what happened in Georgia where Stacey Abrams should be governor of that state.” She continued, “Registered voters were kept off the rolls. Their registrations just piled up in some back office with no intention ever enroll them so that they could actually vote.” She added, “We also saw...
  • Stacey Abrams Defends Refusal to Concede Georgia Governors Race: ‘The Game Is Rigged’

    Stacey Abrams defended her refusal to concede last year’s Georgia gubernatorial election on Monday, arguing that adhering to the democratic norm of conceding to a victorious opponent would make her “complicit” in a “rigged” system. Abrams has consistently refused to acknowledge the legitimacy of Republican Brian Kemp’s November gubernatorial victory and cites the dynamics of her loss as the motivating factor behind the launch of her national voting-rights-advocacy group Fair Fight 2020. During a Monday appearance on CBS This Morning, Abrams pushed back on the suggestion that her denial of the election result’s legitimacy resembles President Trump’s 2016 flirtation with...
  • Trump is still blaming his 2016 New Hampshire loss on voter fraud — with zero proof

    President Trump, per usual, uttered quite a few astonishing soundbites during his 90-minute rally Thursday night in Manchester, N.H. But he was stirring controversy before he even reached New Hampshire. Speaking to reporters earlier that day as he left his New Jersey golf club, Trump revived an unfounded conspiracy theory that he would have won New Hampshire in 2016 but for buses full of out-of-state voters who illegally cast ballots.

    Via the Free Beacon, there’s some agita online today about Abrams floating another hair-raising theory of corruption at the polls after insisting without evidence for months that she’s the rightfully elected governor of Georgia. Although, interestingly, she seems to be backing off that last claim now — somewhat, allowing last night that “I don’t know that empirically I would have won” last year.Does that mean the rest of the party is now free to punt on the burning question of who the “real” governor is, or do racial politics require them to hug the “Stacey won” talking point tight...
  • Stacey Abrams won't join presidential fray, will focus on voter suppression instead: reports

    Fox News ^ | August 13 2019 | Louis Casiano
    Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will not run for president, according to media reports, and will instead focus on combating voter suppression, an issue that took center stage during her unsuccessful run last year. On Tuesday, Abrams announced her new initiative, called Fair Fight 2020, at the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Convention in Las Vegas. The name is an offshoot of a group she started after her loss. A close aide familiar with the decision told The New York Times that Abrams will focus on the new program rather than run for office.

    ‘Louder and more hateful’: Big-city leaders say Trump’s attacks on Baltimore are escalation of his strategy to denigrate diverse, liberal areas President Trump’s denunciations of Baltimore as an uninhabitable city are the latest in a string of disparaging attacks on diverse, liberal enclaves as violent, dirty and outside the mainstream — rhetoric that paints those areas of the country as fundamentally less American than whiter, more conservative strongholds. Trump denigrated Maryland’s largest city over the weekend as “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” and blamed it on Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.), who is black, and claimed on Sunday...

    The Democratic Party has lowered the bar to schlep two election losers to a status reserved for winners. They continue to refer to failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams and failed U.S. Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke as ‘rising stars’—a moniker typically used to describe someone who comes out of nowhere to win a significant election and whose resume has significant achievements. O’Rourke and Abrams have neither. However, they are routinely awarded participation trophies. Abrams' additional reward was to deliver the Democratic response to President Trump’s 2019 State of the Union speech after losing her race. Remember when Robert Francis “Beto”...

    A old straight white male Joe Biden? It doesn't matter that he was Barack Obama's VP, or he represented a fairly black state, Delaware. He's imploding with the segregation stuff. Bernie? Too socialist. Warren? School teacher. Booker? Harris? Been there done that. All the others look like jokers. Hillary? Michelle? No. They're done with politics. Who else? Evan Bayh? John Kerry? Tim Ryan? I think the Democrats have a lackluster field, but Trump doesn't have it in the bag, the MSM hates Trump and the electorate listens to the MSM more than anything. Who does the Democrats have for 2020,...

Nobody outside of your little thought-free bubble wants any more of Georgia gubernatorial looooooser Stacey Abrams than we’ve already seen. Asking for more Stacey Abrams is like that great old SNL skit where Christopher Walken keeps asking for “more cowbell!” Note to Democrats: Ain’t nobody got a fever whose cure is more Stacey Abrams. And please, somebody tell Samuel L. Jackson that for me, ok? Here was Mr. Jackson on Stephen Colbert’s show Monday night, expressing his disappointment with the current Democrat field of candidates,...

    Death and taxes are said to be the only things in life that are certain. However, I’ll add another: Democrats never accept political defeat even when that includes election losses. With that in mind, the Democrat strategy going into the 2020 election is simple. They will play the race and gender card like it is some kind of sport. They’ll drudge up reparations for slavery while claiming voter suppression continues as if we are still in the post-Civil War Reconstruction period in America in the South where black voters continued to be disenfranchised by Democrats until the passage of the...

    Stacey Abrams has really arrived. The former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives and the Democrat Party candidate in the 2018, hotly-contested Georgia gubernatorial election, Abrams scored a double anointing by major globalist groups during the month of May. First, on May 10, she was chosen to deliver the keynote address at the Council on Foreign Relations’ Seventh Annual Conference on Diversity in International Affairs. She received the royal rock star treatment during that conference, as the great and the good packed into “A Conversation With Stacey Abrams,” a Q&A session emceed by New York Times reporter and...

    National Review ^ | 05/23/2019 | Jim Geraghty
    Every presidential primary ends with one winner and a lot of losers. Some might argue that one or two once-little-known candidates who overperform low expectations get to enjoy a form of moral victory. (Ben Carson and Rick Perry might be happy how the 2016 cycle ended, with both taking roles in Trump’s cabinet. Bernie Sanders might be, too.) But running for president and flopping is a deep disappointment, and while the occasional figure can emerge from a failed bid to move on to different victories — Lamar Alexander and Elizabeth Dole became senators, Jerry Brown became governor again, Howard Dean...

    The Washington Post is discounting America’s win in World War Two because American forces were all “racists.” I guess that we now have to delete America’s part in World War Two from the history books to suit liberal sensibilities just like we are erasing statues to military people all across the nation. The attack on the Allied Forces in WWII came in an idiotic liberal article with the unwieldy title of, “Allied leaders were anti-Nazi, but not anti-racist. We’re now paying the price for their failure.” The article by a foaming-at-the-mouth lib named John Broich — who claims to be...

    South Bend mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg demonstrated once again that he marches to a rather warped brand of Christian theology. As the Hollywood elite joins hand-in-hand to boycott the state of Georgia for passing a fetal heartbeat bill that bans abortions once doctors can detect a baby's heartbeat in the mother's womb, the South Bend mayor has denounced the newly-acted law as a "cruel attack" on women. According to LifeNews, Buttigieg denounced the law in a tweet last week shortly after Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed the bill. "A woman has enough to deal with when it...

    Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., claimed Sunday that former Democratic gubernatorial candidates Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum would have won in 2018 if not for "voter suppression." “Let’s say this loud and clear: Without voter suppression, Stacey Abrams would be the governor of Georgia; Andrew Gillum is the governor of Florida," she said before calling for a new voting rights act. Harris, a 2020 hopeful, made those comments while appearing at the NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Detroit. In a statement on Twitter, Harris similarly called for automatic voter registration and making Election Day a national holiday.
