Pro-English voters should ask questions
By: D.A. King
A December 2015 Rosetta Stone poll showed that a bipartisan 76% of Georgians support making English Georgia’s constitutional official language. The idea is English as official, not “English only” as goes the portrayal by dishonest opponents.
Policy differences for candidates in the race for Georgia governor may not extend to allowing Georgia voters to decide if the state constitution should be amended to make English the official language of government.
According to an AJC report last week, Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams promised to oppose constitutional official English in the General Assembly as governor and boasted of fighting against allowing voters to answer a ballot question when she was in the legislature.
We thought it surprising that the AJC did not include a quote or position from Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp on the voter-popular issue, so Wednesday, October 3, this writer sent a policy question and request for a quote to the Kemp campaign.
“Do you support allowing Georgia voters to decide on a ballot question that would amend the state constitution to make English the official language of Georgia government and which would end current practice of offering the written road rules portion of the DDS drivers license exam in (eleven) foreign languages?
If so, will you use the power of the governor’s office to promote that cause for the 2020 election?”
We have not received a response from candidate Kemp. Curious voters should ask him.
All concerned should be aware that Georgia has a 1996 statute in place that makes English the official language, but also says officials can ignore that directive:
“State agencies, counties, municipal corporations, and political subdivisions of this state are authorized to use or to print official documents and forms in languages other than the official language, at the discretion of their governing authorities.”
The concept of allowing voters to have a voice on the matter is quite popular in the Georgia senate. Introduced by state Senator Josh McKoon, in 2016 SR 675 passed the Georgia senate with every Republican member voting “YEA,” But it was not allowed a vote on the House floor.
McKoon’s Resolution created a ballot question voters would have considered that year which read:
“Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to provide that English is the official language of the State of Georgia?”
All persons desiring to vote in favor of ratifying the proposed amendment shall vote “Yes.”
All persons desiring to vote against ratifying the proposed amendment shall vote “No.”
If such amendment shall be ratified as provided in said Paragraph of the Constitution, it shall become a part of the Constitution of this state.”
Most conservatives would like to have the chance to answer that question in November, 2020.
Readers who are not closely involved in Gold Dome politics are likely asking why they have not already been permitted to vote on making official English part of the state constitution. It helps to know that the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce are vehemently opposed to that idea.
It may also help to know that in metro-Atlanta’s DeKalb School District alone, administrators are dealing with students from 180 different countries who speak 140 different languages.
Without a constitutional mandate that English is the official language of government, readers can make their own predictions on how long it is before the angry marches in the streets begin with the demand that government in Georgia accommodate every imaginable language with the cry that “diversity is our strength.”
It seems like something a Republican candidate for Georgia governor would comment on. Comprende?

Mary Todd Lincoln moved to Chicago after the assassination of her husband at the end of the
Civil War. In her grief she continued her old habits of flittering away her money, a trait that drove
her husband Abe, almost nuts when he was alive and driving her son Todd nuts as well and so,
to save the remaining fortune she had, he had her declared ‘crazy’ and institutionalized.
Hillary Clinton has taken to the world stage once again to flitter away what little credibility she
and her sexist husband Bill, have left. Hillary now claims that under her dark nemesis, Donald
Trump, a “Constitutional Crisis” is building because Trump does despicable things, then she
sets about describing, inaccurate and minute detail, exactly what the Democrat Party has done.
In terms only Maxine Waters could mouth, Hillary now calls for open warfare. She said on CNN
Tuesday, that “civility can start again” when Democrats take back control of the House and
Senate. Until then all bets are off when dealing with Republicans.”
She added: “you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for,
what you care about. That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House
and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the
Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
Once again, Hillary claimed victim status as a woman, citing her own treatment at the hands of
those uncivil Republicans, claiming she was targeted by “lies,” driven by a “lust for power.”
“I remember what they did to me for twenty-five years — the falsehoods, the lies, which
unfortunately, people believe because the Republicans have put a lot of time, money, and effort
in promoting them,” so when you’re dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for
power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding, it’s —
you can be civil, but you can’t overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections.”
Thank you Hillary Clinton, we couldn’t do it without you. Apart from claiming her special status
as a victim because she’s a woman, as Democrats always do, she also throws down the
gauntlet of accusation because what Trump did to the poor little children. For Democrats, if it’s
not women, illegals immigrants or the poor, their excuse is always “it’s for the children!” The
separation of illegals from their children at our southern border was a process started by Obama
to keep children out of jails That, somehow in her twisted mind, is Trump’s fault.
What’s clear is that Hillary Clinton sill wants to be president. What’s equally clear is that Hillary
will never be president because she is certifiable for institutionalization, whether in a nut house
or the Big House. Nothing is more pathetic than a mouth foaming Democrat threatening incivility
and calling for action against American citizens who kept her from office! What’s could more sad
than someone selling their immortal soul for power?
When we accept that our differences of opinions are so great, and we know that sooner or later,
someone will get killed, then things are really bad. Hillary wants that power so desperately even
if, like Chairman Mao advised, it “comes from the barrel of a gun,” she’ll still try to get it. There is
an alternative: Institutionalization. The Democrat face of evil is revealed. They can no longer
hide their true intentions. They want a Communist America and we don’t! Prison works for me.
We can throw in Maxine Waters, Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi, as a bonus choices.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (10Oct18)
The great political philosopher George Orwell once opined: ”Political language is designed to
make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure
wind.” Once, well crafted political speech, like that Winston Churchill and Ronald Reagan
produced, were magical in their rhetorical realism and their prophetic truths.
Political speech should be beyond propaganda, to change minds by persuasion, debate and
agreement. But, as we have seen in the recent displays of the Democrat party’s total
derangement, there can no longer be any attempt at calm discussion on dissenting opinions.
Democrats have made political speech positively dangerous. Conservative ‘Tweets for
example, except for Trumps, will immediately bring down the heavens on the head of any
‘tweeter’ who supports Kavanaugh or Trump or, like the astronaut who liked a Churchill quote
and found the demons of heaven rained down on his head to the point he actually thought it
necessary to apologize and promise to reexamine and reevaluate his politically incorrect
thinking. Just when Republicans in Congress are showing some backbone by their solid
defense of Justice Kavanaugh, this guy displays craven weakness.
Words mean something unless, by Democrats definition, they mean something else. Changing
definitions of words makes them lies but, when repeated over and over again and are not
challenged as propaganda or fake news, they seem to automatically assume a life of their own
and replace the original definitions of words we once recognized as good and wholesome.
“What was right is wrong” and etc. Political speech, by Democrats, is dangerous.
Indoctrination by our colleges and universities has turned out the mental misfits we saw
screaming from the Senate gallery, and in the halls and offices of Senators during the
Kavanaugh confirmation process. Were these young women really that stupid or did the
indoctrination really work? Shockingly, I think they worked. Democrats now anticipate a
conditioned response from their followers. How should Conservatives classify these people?
The higher educational experience is the dumbing down process and the brainwashing used to
create a class that hates America. It has left our politically active youth a spectacle of shame,
ignorance and ineptitude. These women have become loyal subjects subservient to the Marxist
ideals that legitimizes the new political order that Democrats have worked to achieve.
This started several generations ago by Marxists, to create a nation of obedient zombies
dedicated to the State, in other words, a class that accepts the infallibility of big government.
Presently, there are no longer enough Democrat politicians to forcibly move the ball forward so
they must enlist their minions of zombies to take to the floor and the streets and the steps of the
buildings of government to scream their outrage at the loss they are suffering at the hands of
Donald Trump. If you love America, you can’t possibly vote for any Democrat.
In the aftermath of Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Sens. Lindsay Graham, Chuck Grassley and
Mitch McConnell have advanced the political language of war and thrown it in the laps of
Chuckie Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, et. al.
Reluctantly or not, by following Trump’s lead maybe, just maybe, the Republicans have got their
“groove back!” Let the fights begin!!!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (08Oct18)
Schumer: “If you believe Dr. Ford, then Kavanaugh is Guilty!” “This man does not belong on the
Supreme Court,” I heard no such remarks from any Democrat about Bill Clinton’s victims or that
he should remain President. Soviet show trials started that way. An accusation made was proof
enough of guilt. Stalin made the accusation and to save time the accused went straight to the
firing squad. That’s what Democrats want. That’s a reason why I despise Democrats.
We have fallen victim to overuse of the term “Double Standard” that our betters, Hillary Clinton,
Loretta Lynch, Obama, Dianne Feinstein, et. al.., are not responsible for their crimes because
“they meant well” or “didn’t intend to.” We’ve heard “Double Standards” so often and seen it in
action that even talking about it deadens our senses because while we know it’s true we also
see that nothing is ever done about it. Case in point, the Kavanaugh show trial.
Democrats are fixated on their end goal, the Socialization of America. That plan includes
population control but, instead of pogoms and mass starvation of the middle class (kulaks) like
the Soviet Bolsheviks did, Democrats are content to allow the death camps of Planned
Parenthood to murder vast numbers of little citizens for them.
I had long entertained the idea that the Democrats, shocked beyond belief when Trump
defeated Hillary in 2016, remained in their continued meltdown because of Trump Derangement
Syndrome. Then it occurred to me that the vehemence of this dastardly attack against Judge
Kavanaugh went far beyond merely trying to thwart Trump’s destruction of the Deep State, but
because Kavanaugh himself portends a singular threat to their plans to overcome America.
It all falls to Kavanaugh’s dissenting decision as a Judge on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals,
against the Washington DC council’s rules imposing firearms restrictions on the citizens of
Wash. DC. The issue passed and in its appeal to the Supreme Court, it was Judge Kavanaugh’s
written dissent, almost in its entirety, that the Supreme Court used in striking down the DC
restrictions as unconstitutional, ergo, Kavanaugh remains a clear and present danger to the
safe establishment of a Socialist Soviet style state. Democrats are absolutely despicable.
Our elite leaders, who firmly believe they serve as our betters, especially the despicable
Democrats, actually despise us. They hate us beyond imagination because enough of us won’t
swallow the crap they’ve been shoveling out to move their plans forward. They want to remain
the “Elites” with all the perks that come with it and as long as Americans remain armed and
ready to defend themselves, their plans to disarm and socialize Americans cannot proceed.
Squatting in the political shadows pretending they too can be counted among the ranks of our
betters are several really stupid congressmen and women. They identify themselves every time
they open their mouths but, to avoid confusion they are Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Watters, Shirley
Jackson Lee, Hank Johnson and others. They make all Democrats look despicable.
It’s sad for the nation but I suspect from now on it will take people with supreme grace, strength
of will, stern resolve and rhinoceros hides to even consider wanting to stand for high public
office. Trump is certainly one and now so too is Judge Kavanaugh. The stable of Republican
contenders suffers a paucity of likely candidates and many know it. That’s why losers like John
Kasich and even Jeff Flake entertain the notion they can run for president in 2020 and defeat
Tumps. These are really stupid people too!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (02Oct18)
In a desperate attempt to end the ceaseless flow of campaign drivel from pretenders, PAC’s
and politicians, most of whom suffer TDS, I met another appeal from John Kasich of Ohio to
separate me from my Trump generated earnings with the following polite missive:
“Dear Governor Kasich,
No Sir, I would not like to “chip in” to your campaign. That would be a waste of money because
we absolutely do not agree. Your message isn’t making any difference at all. You will never be
President. Your policies and ideals were rejected at the last election. You tallied fourth in the
Primaries and like a silly twit you continued to campaign even when second and third place
contenders had dropped out. Voters could see that you lacked common sense.
No one believes your message because bipartisanship with Democrats cannot possibly happen.
Democrats have become America’s enemies because they are Marxists. If you continue to
believe they can be accommodated to accept a constitutional representative government with
Republicans, through bipartisanship, then you’re not only a fool but a stupid one as well.
You said you called for a delay in the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing because of “the serious
accusations against Judge Kavanaugh,” playing right into the Democrat hands to delay, delay,
delay. What serious accusations? A patently false, thirty-six-year-old hit job on an unverifiable
allegation to which not even a crime scene, time, date or place can be ascribed? That makes
you a “fellow traveler” in the true sense of the word who, like Jeff Flake, is an avid Trump hater
suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Governor, you need to get a real life and stop
pretending that you matter any more or that anybody cares about you.
Americans voted Trump as President because he told us what he was going to do, then he set
about doing it, successfully! Your “bipartisanship” BS can’t compete with Trump’s success and
Americans don’t care about a fellow who doesn’t look and act Presidential, so long as he does
what he say’s and keeps his promises. Trump is doing that. Quit trying to spoil the pie.
Kindly remove me from your email list.”…& etc.
Even now, after the two-faced Arizona, Republican Senator Jeff Flake threw a monkey wrench
into the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings with his notion of being fair and bipartisan, (he turned
over) the Democrats can no longer conceal their true motives, refill the swamp at all costs to
regain and keep power – forever!
The Democrats operation “Ford” was a clumsily organized, last-minute campaign to obstruct
and delay the confirmation of Trump’s second appointee to the Supreme Court. I can’t wait for
the third. Such a campaign had to have been well funded. We saw expensive Democrat
lawyers, paid Soros protesters in the Senate hearing room admitted via Democrat Senator
issued tickets (Schumer), and a hysterical nitwit in an elevator screaming at Sen. Flake
nonsense about not protecting her fat body, we’ve seen ejected Senate protestors being paid
cash out of doors, and now we learn that through the device of a “GoFundMe” site, Dr. Ford will
be $700,000 dollars richer at weeks end. How about them apples?
One fact remains inviolable: Jeff Flake is a moral weakling. For whatever reason (TDS) he has
violated his party’s trust, turned to the ‘Dark Side,’ and foolishly entertains the notion he has the
moxie, skill and aptitude to challenge Trump in 2020. It’s an unravelling coming for the Dark
Side. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (30Sep18)
The Democrats, in their desperate need to stop Donald Trump, continue in their nefarious antics
to delay, obfuscate, lie, cheat and steal to prevent President Trump from Making America Great
Again. America can start to heal when the Marxist/Democrat party is no longer a threat.
The Senate Judicial Committee hearing of Supreme Court Nominee, Bret Kavanaugh was
turned into a “Progressive circus” by the Democrat Senators on the committee, helped by
Schumer filling the hearing room with paid screaming Leftists. Then came the last minute Dr.
Christine Bassey Ford accusation, purposefully designed to upset the timing of the Senate vote
for Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Who know’s what’s next but it will be as equally stupid.
We have no idea what Jeff Sessions is doing to ensure American law does not utilize a double
standard and that Americans know that, but.… ??? The logical path forward is to put Democrats
on the defensive. I believe that the President should quietly launch a campaign, not on “Twitter”
but behind the scenes, and be cold, calculating and ruthless, and as purposeful in its execution
as the Democrats are in trying to make their schemes work.
Democrats have a serious weakness apart from losing elections. it’s the long list of Hillary
Clinton’s and DNC staffers, colluding NY law firms, Fusion GPS, FBI and DOJ senior employees
who are or should be easy pickings for federal grand jury inditement’s on a basket load of
provable felony offenses. They’re out there, Where’s Jeff?
The offensive campaign should begin quietly, picking off the low hanging fruit, like Mueller does,
and start the squeeze, one by one until the fire alarm of Democratic panic rises into the ranks of
elected Democrat officials and, hopefully, a few “#Never Trumpers” as well. Oh, what fun that
would be! But it’s not being done because except for election loses, there is no visible rising
panic in the Democrat Party, or the media for that matter. Mr. President, turn on the heat!
Crimes relating to the false FISA warrant applications, illegal smash and grab searches (fruit of
the poisonous tree doctrine) of potential subjects of federal persecutions, the Chinese hacking
into Hillary’s unauthorized server, destruction of subpoenaed documents, destruction of physical
evidence and etc. etc., & etc.. If Trump starts now, the Democrats will be forced into a defensive
mode, something not usual for them, and the business of governing can proceed.
Republican’s can’t or won’t do this. They lack the in-house fighting skills needed both to defend
their own actions and/or launch really cool and devastating attacks on the morally and ethnically
challenged Democrats. Why in the world, for example, would Sen. Grassley, the Judiciary
Committee Chairman, entertain such a silly notion as flying to California to interview Dr. Ford
because she won’t come to Wash. DC? Simply to appease the media. It shows weakness and is
deliberating to the confirmation process. The committee owes Dr. Ford nothing except a
reasonable forum to publicly, under oath, tell her story. If she doesn’t show up, then that’s it.
Proceed with the vote and send it to the whole Senate as was planned. That’s what the
Democrats would do, but no, the Republicans have to show “fairness.”
America elected Trump specifically to put jurists like Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh will be confirmed. Soon thereafter, Ruth Bader Ginsberg will depart and Trump will
have yet another nomination to make. It will work while Dems. are defending themselves.
Remember, freedoms the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (20Sep18)
The skinny figure of Obama racing onto the American political stage in a fruitless attempt to
claim credit for Trump’s economic success is one visible symptom of the inevitable collapse of
the Democratic party. Or is it? The theatrics of politics is often funny, sometimes hypocritical and
ofttimes dangerous, the players not skilled as thespians, but earnestly deadly.
Other symptoms are all around us. The uncivil behavior of Democrat Senators Cory Booker and
Kamala Harris, both hopefuls for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination, disrupting the
Kavanaugh hearings even before they got started; the scheming plan by Chuckie Schumer to fill
the senate judicial hearing chamber with protestors, one of which was later photographed
outside receiving a cash payment from a radical leftist organizer; the absolutely asinine, last
minute revelation of an anonymous letter breathlessly alleging a sexual assault by Judge
Kavanaugh in his high school years. Where did that aging blowhard, California Senator Diane
Feinstein, come up with something that? Desperation, that’s where!
Former senator, failed Secretary of State and Ketchup heir, John Kerry (who has three purple
hearts from paper cuts he received in Vietnam), is actively undermining US policy on Iran by
illegally running off to advise the Iranians on how to out-wait Trumps presidency. He admits it.
Can he be charged with treason? These are only a few of the derangement symptoms currently
on display by radical leftist democrats.
Of course Feinstein, in all her pious seriousness immediately forwarded the anonymous
missive, like any good citizen would, to the FBI where, presumably it was received by them with
the contempt it so richly deserved, “Oh hum” and a quick trip to the round file.
Mr. John Kerry, has been upbraided by President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,
for activities “unseemly and unprecedented” meaning treasonous, and Kerry’s fall back position
is to tell the President to read his book, Every Day is Extra. Knowing Kerry’s long known far left
radical sympathies, it isn’t difficult to assume his book is but a conflated list of excuses for his
socialist leaning diplomatic failures. Remember, like Obama, John Kerry too has a legacy to
Will the Democrats penchant to continually grasp for symbols of their heroism, never end? Why
does Cory Booker believe he had an “I am Spartacus” moment? Why did the leftist media claim
Obama’s return to the political stage was as “the Return of the Jedi?” These are serious
And of course the biggest piece of democrat theatrics ever conceived, the Mueller Investigation
of Donald Trumps (alleged) collusion with those scheming Russians, continues apace in the
medias efforts to throw off the collusion by Hillary Clinton onto the shoulders of Donald Trump.
Nearly two years have passed and the only true and actual collusion found was committed by
the Democrats, especially the yet un-indited criminal Hillary Clinton. The evidence, not symbols,
of her criminality and treason are no longer so opaque they can’t be dealt with almost
immediately after the DoJ is finally purged of it’s Orwellian Obama obstructionists.
The raft of Leftist millennials, especially females, running for congress, seem to be out of touch
but, that’s because they are but youthful amateurs not skilled in the art of dissemblege, yet! When
they do, we had better be prepared for ‘em because they won’t be acting. Remember, freedom
is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (15Sept18)
Every day, we all are faced with making choices. Some are automatic like a shave and shower
and tying our shoes, but the really hard ones, what to wear, what to have for breakfast and how
to avoid work that day, actually requires some thought process. Other are made easy for us like
the News Media that expects us to swallow what they tell us as the truth, even when it isn’t. Like
Pavlov's dog, they expect us to respond accordingly, so long as it advances the Left’s agenda.
Politically, the tawdry display by the degenerate Socialist party USA (Democrats) at this weeks
Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, including by two potential Democrat contenders for Trumps
job, both Marxists, is scary to even contemplate let alone consider seriously as even possible.
Two Democrat hopefuls for POTUS sitting on the Senate Judicial Committee, Cory Booker and
Kamala Harris, demonstrated their complete lack of comity, decency, integrity, respect, and
statesmanship to question their bonafides even to be US Senators. Both were incredibly
disrespectful with their constant ‘showboating’ interruptions, that, combined with the other
Socialist nimrods on the committee who behaved as disrespectfully, then our choices for
political leaders should be easy. Immediately Sen. Grassley opened the hearing, they came on
him like a swarm of locusts attacking a wheat field. What we saw was a Democrat version of
how ‘democracy’ should work. We do have choices, don’t we?
The Socialist Democrat party wants us to accept that America is a ‘democracy’ when it clearly is
not. The word Democracy is found nowhere in our Constitution. Presently, the deranged
socialists, still distraught that Trump beat Hillary for the grand prize, are now demanding a
referendum to change the election process for President from the Electoral to a popular vote.
That’s pure democracy, leadership by popular choice, follow the mob, do what the crowd wants,
“It’s what the people want!” Of course such a change would leave the selection of our President
forever in the hands of the illiterate, unwashed, illegal voters in America’s great sanctuary cities
and states like San Francisco, California, Portland Oregon, Seattle, Washington, Florida and
New York City, hot beds of progressivism, petri dishes in which foment the germs of Marxism.
If you watched any of the Democrat circus performance at the hearings of the Senate Judicial
Committee on the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh then, unless you are a complete Marxist in
heart, mind, body and soul, any thought of voting for any Democrat in this mid-term election,
should have been washed away. It’s a choice we have to make.
It turns out, and confirmed by Democrat Senator Dick Durbin no less, that the disruption of the
hearings had been indeed been orchestrated by Chuckie Schumer. Well, who would have
believed it? The spectators who trumpeted their orchestrated outrage and were dragged out
screaming their socialist nonsense, were there by invitation and required tickets to get in, issued
to them by Democrat Senators. When asked, Schumer said Democrats even wrestled over
staging a mass walkout on the Kavanaugh nomination hearing. Maybe they should have done it.
Isn’t it better to be thought a class of fools than stay there and remove all doubt?
What we see is that the Democrats cannot derail the Kavanaugh confirmation. He going to the
Supreme Court and they can’t stomach. Worse, they worry that Trump may get a third and even
a fourth choice during his remaining six years. I hope the Democrats choke on it. It’s our choice!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (06Sept18)
