  • Hopes Dim for DACA Deal as Lawmakers Battle Over Trump’s Immigration Remarks

    NY Times ^ | Jan. 14, 2018 | THOMAS KAPLAN and NOAH WEILAND
    The senator, David Perdue of Georgia, said Mr. Trump “did not use that word,” and he accused another participant in the White House meeting, Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, of a “gross misrepresentation” of what the president had said at the session. He and another Republican senator at the meeting, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, had previously said they did “not recall the president saying these comments specifically.” But by Sunday, their recollections appeared to have sharpened, and Mr. Cotton joined Mr. Perdue in disputing Mr. Durbin’s account. But in Congress, the battle took on an increasingly personal dimension...

    Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., repeatedly said Sunday morning that reports President Trump referred to Haiti and various African countries as "shithole countries" during a meeting with senators this week on immigration was a "gross misrepresentation." Perdue use the phrase "gross misrepresentation" several times during an interview with ABC's "This Week."
  • Making School Lunch Edible Again

    For years after Michelle Obama’s ironically named Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, students at Penn-Trafford High School in Harrison City, Pennsylvania staged an accidental trash can rebellion. As in many districts, waste management companies were the only winners as students dumped lunch into the garbage. For this school year, Penn-Trafford High School instead tossed Mrs. Obama’s school lunch plan and now President Trump is doing the same on a national scale. As with any policy created by coercive utopians to control personal choices, nothing about the Obama plan made sense. Kids, parents and school districts hated it, and its...

    The Trump administration is ending yet another of Michelle Obama’s hated, overly strict school lunch rules by bringing chocolate milk back to school lunch menus. The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday announced a new rule set to take effect on July 1 after the period of public comment. The new rule relaxes sodium limits and Obama’s whole-grain requirements. The rule will also allow milk with one percent fat back on the menu, ABC News reported. “Schools need flexibility in menu planning so they can serve nutritious and appealing meals,” Perdue said this week. “Schools want to offer food that...

    In keeping with President Donald Trump’s executive order establishing the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue launched the effort on Thursday along with representatives from 22 federal agencies that are taking on the wide-ranging initiative. The task force will work to find ways to increase jobs, housing and educational opportunities for America’s rural communities, and to remove obstacles, such as burdensome regulations, and to improve infrastructure and access to technology. advertisement The task force held its inaugural meeting in Washington, D.C., and attendees included Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, Secretary of...

    Two Republican senators took up the baton for populist immigration reform Tuesday when they announced their Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment, or RAISE Act, designed to raise wages for ordinary Americans, restore legacy immigration levels, and reset family and worker visa programs. “We are taking action to fix some of the shortcomings in our legal immigration system—returning to our historically normal levels of legal immigration will help improve the quality of American jobs and wages,” said Georgia’s Sen. David A. Perdue Jr., who served on the chamber’s Judiciary Committee and was one the first and foremost Senate supporters of...
  • "One Nation Under God." President Trump Chooses Sonny Perdue for Secretary Of Agriculture

    01/26/2017 2:23:54 PM PST · by davikkm · 75 replies
    I have to say it does my heart good to see a government official turn to God, praying for rain in a drought situation. Governor Sonny Perdue held a prayer service for rain on the steps of the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta, Georgia on November 13, 2007. Today President Trump has chosen Perdue as Secretary of Agriculture, but some are criticizing Perdue for his prayer service in 2007. Hard to believe someone could be mocked for that, isn’t it? I wish we had more in government who would turn toward God than away from Him. We need God to...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) are pushing for an amendment to the Constitution to place term limits on lawmakers, arguing the move will help overhaul Washington. "The American people resoundingly agreed on Election Day, and President-elect Donald Trump has committed to putting government back to work for the American people," Cruz said in a statement on Tuesday. "It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington into a graveyard of good intentions.” Under an amendment the two GOP lawmakers filed on Tuesday, House members would be allowed...

    Sen. Marco Rubio is backing a push to increase penalties for undocumented immigrants who reenter the country after previously being deported. The Florida Republican signed onto legislation from fellow 2016 White House hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Thursday, according to the Congressional Record. Under Cruz's legislation, undocumented immigrants face additional prison time if they reenter the country after being deported, including a minimum five-year sentence if they were previously convicted of an aggravated felony or of illegally reentering the country twice. The Texas Republican is expected to come to the Senate floor next week to try to pass the...

    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.

    The New York Times ^ | 11/02/2014 | Nate Cohn
    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...

Every single one of them.” True, Obama is 'Not' on the ballot this fall, but he neglected to mention that his left-hand henchman, the one responsible for ramming through Obamacare without any Republican support, for killing more legislation passed by the people's house than any other Senate majority leader in U.S. history, and the second most divisive and hated man in American politics today, Harry Reid...

    Georgia's tight Senate race could be headed for the courtroom after voters head to the ballot box. A state judge ruled earlier this week against civil rights groups seeking to force the Georgia secretary of State to account for roughly 40,000 voter registrations that were filed but allegedly haven't shown up on the voting rolls. Those voters could have a big impact on the tight open seat contest between Democrat Michelle Nunn and Republican David Perdue. That initial ruling raises the possibility of further post-election legal action — and is likely to increase the number of potential provisional ballots, the...

    Republican David Perdue h as surged ahead of Democrat Michelle Nunn in the race to fill the senate seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, according to the latest poll by SurveyUSA conducted for Atlanta Business Chronicle broadcast partner WXIA-TV. With less than a week to go before the election, Perdue has 48 percent of the vote. Nunn has 45 percent. In a SurveyUSA poll last week, Nunn held 46 percent of the vote and Perdue had 44 percent. Libertarian Senate candidate Amanda Swafford polled at 3 percent. Five percent of voters are undecided. Perdue's gain is credited...

    The polls this cycle have been cruel to Democrats. A number of surveys have given the president’s party undue hope that they could pull off the impossible on Election Day and retain control of the U.S. Senate. But, like Lucy van Pelt ripping the set football away from a rushing Charlie Brown at the very last minute, Democrats have been robbed of that intoxicating hope just as the buzz was getting good. After abandoning the party’s nominee as determined by the voters, Democrats were thrilled by the prospect that ruby red Kansas might elect a Democrat masquerading as an independent...

    Going into the final week, the close Senate races are beginning to shake out — and perhaps get caught in the national wave. That may be the case in Georgia, where Survey USA’s polling shows a five-point shift in the race between Michelle Nunn and David Perdue to replace Saxby Chambliss. Last week, Nunn edged Perdue 46/44, but Perdue now leads 48/45 with seven days left. The “dramatic” difference, Survey USA reports, is among women: Compared to a WXIA-TV pre-election tracking poll one week ago, Democrat Michelle Nunn is upside down. One week ago, Nunn led Republican David Perdue...

    More GOP cavalry arrived in Georgia today as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz stumped with David Perdue and Gov. Nathan Deal in Canton, invoking memories of long gas lines and stagflation as he attacked their Democratic rivals. “Here in Georgia, we’ve got on the ballot Jimmy Carter and Sam Nunn,” he said. “It’s like ‘That 70’s Show.'” The Texas firebrand echoed Perdue’s talking points by saying that an election of Michelle Nunn, the Democratic nominee, equals a stamp of approval for President Barack Obama’s agenda. Republicans need a net gain of six Senate seats to take control of the chamber, and...

    A new CNN/ORC Poll is the latest in a long line of polls to show Democrat Michelle Nunn leading David Perdue in the Georgia Senate race. More importantly, the CNN poll shows that Nunn would win a runoff between the two candidates.
