BKP’s Opening Today – Why Did Donna Brazile Mention Seth Rich in her Book ?

FYNTV, GMFTO

In BKP’s opening monologue today he discussed the following issues:
Do you have a Risk Assessment for your church?
26 killed at a First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday. Why is the media is not talking about the shooter? Maybe he was an atheist connected to the leftist Antifa movement who supported Democratic candidates. Instead they are discussing mental illness, saying Republicans caused this and we must do something about semi-automatic weapons/gun legislation. America don’t be fooled… They are coming for your guns!!!

In Donna Brazile’s new book “Hacks,” she discusses security fears as the DNC Chair. What was she in fear of? Why did she even mention Seth Rich in her book? Could Brazile’s new book begin to connect the dots between Imran Awan, former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Seth Rich. Is Hillary Clinton finally going to be exposed!?!

The real reason the Trump campaign hired Paul Manafort – Does anyone remember the Republican brokered convention of 1976 between Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford?

Casey Cagle’s Reprehensible Acts, The Michael Williams Press Conference that missed the Target

Featured, Politics

“The Die Has Been Cast”

Swing and a miss, strike two.  State Senator Michael Williams now has two strikes against him with the media in his quest to be the next Governor of Georgia.

Williams’ first strike was at the State GOP convention when he announced in a speech that a member from  Lt. Governor Casey Cagle’s campaign team approached him backstage and offered him a deal to get out of the Governor’s race.  In his speech at the GOP convention Williams claimed in front of 1500 people that he was offered the Chairmanship of the Appropriations Committee if he would get out of the race.  He never named the individual with Cagle’s team who made the offer in the backroom deal.  An accusation with no name leaving the media hanging. Strike one.

Williams’ press conference last Thursday at the Capitol was strike two.

Williams sent out an invite last Wednesday announcing a press conference he would be holding at the Capitol Thursday afternoon. The invitation stated he would be revealing the reprehensible acts of Lt. Governor Casey Cagle.

The press conference was scheduled for 2PM and Williams was 30 minutes late.  The press conference only lasted twelve minutes.  I attended this press conference and from memory the only thing I got out of it was ‘campaign Casey, a member of Casey Cagle’s team, offered him a committee chairmanship to get out of the race.  Angered that Cagle may have out maneuvered him on minimum wage for Sheriff deputies, Willams directly asked Cagle to get out of the race and something about “tying shoes”.

The media pressed Williams to give the name of who from Cagle’s team offered him the chairmanship. Williams’ only response was, ‘not at this time.’  I asked him the final question of the press conference, “did you not say that it was a member of Cagle’s team?” Williams said, “correct.”  And I asked, “and you’re not prepared to give us who that is”?  Williams: “no”.  Williams then told everyone to have a nice day and walked off taking no more questions.  

Williams held up a copy of SB 254 entitled: Minimum annual salary for each deputy appointed by each Sheriff; provide; Local Law Enforcement Officer Compensation Commission.  

Senators Greg Kirk and Josh McKoon co-sponsored the bill along with Williams.  Williams claims that Cagle is the reason the bill went nowhere during the past legislative session.  Maybe Williams thought this would be his strongest campaign issue. This could show he is the true friend of law enforcement in the campaign.

In May Cagle announced along with Greg Kirk the Compensation of Police and Sheriffs Task Force.  Statement released by the Lt. Governor’s office, “The service and dedication of our law enforcement officials is nothing short of heroic,” said Lt. Governor Cagle. “We must make every effort to ensure local compensation packages are both competitive and fair to those who protect and serve. COPS will help local governments identify ways to maximize their support for the men and women who bravely protect our communities and neighborhoods.”

Kirk, one of Williams’ co-sponsors gone and with the other Josh McKoon running for Secretary of State he may not have any backup concerning his claim that Cagle killed the bill.

Recently Cagle commented about a possible sheriff deputy minimum wage.  He has not gone into any detail though.

This week is the Sheriffs’ Association’s Summer Conference where each candidate will get a chance to address the Association.  

Brian Kemp, Hunter Hill, Michael Williams and Casey Cagle will have their chance to make their pitch.  You can forget this week which one is the true conservative, cause this week all you will hear is ‘I am the true friend of law enforcement’, {no} ‘I’m the true friend of law enforcement,’ {no}  ……

My suspicion is that the Sheriffs’ Association will support whomever they think will be best able to get something done for them when it comes to minimum wage for deputies.  If that turns out to be Cagle then that may mean  Williams has been totally out maneuvered on the issue and SB 254 could turn out to be, as a campaign issue for Williams, no more than good initiative/poor judgment.

You can understand Williams’ frustration.  If Cagle gets almost every Sheriff in the state to actively campaign for him that is big.  Really big.  Maybe that is the ‘reprehensible’ act.

But, Williams’ shoe tying comment directed toward Casey Cagle was a ‘low blow’ no pun intended.  Williams experienced several personal attacks especially during his first State Senate race.  The rumors are already flying and emails being sent concerning Williams’ past.  Maybe Williams’ comment was a subtle warning not to go personal.  It’s disappointing this early in the campaign that things are taking a dirty turn rather than  staying focused on the issues.

The voters of Georgia may want to hear about issues like casino gambling, rural economic development, tax reform, healthcare, infrastructure…… not who can tie their own shoes.

I feel Williams’ gets one more strike with the media.  I can only speak for myself.  If he calls another press conference I will attend. Williams has to make good on his claims of reprehensible acts by Cagle soon or that will be strike three and he will lose his credibility. It’s a long time until election day and Williams will need the media to take him serious to help get his message out.

Kemp and Hill have not commented on the Williams’ attacks of Casey Cagle.  They both seem to be able to keep their campaigns focused on the issues and not the dirt for the time being.  Odds are they will have to join the mud pit before the race is over.

Michael Williams was the first Georgia politician holding a state office to support Donald Trump for President.  Williams is attempting to run a Donald Trump-style campaign.  There’s only one problem, he is not Donald Trump.

Trump never held public office. He had no legislative voting track record.  He could run against Washington D.C. and the Media.

Williams has a State Senate voting record. During his first two years in the State Senate his voting record looks like he was working well with the Republican Establishment.  His third year looks more like someone preparing to run for governor.

I am not questioning Williams’ conservative credentials, just the direction his campaign is headed.  If you going to demand Casey Cagle  get out of the race, it’s time to give the reason why with the facts.

 

 

 

The Democrat Collapse; Can it Recover?

Politics

In the wake of Karan Handles election victory over the youthful Democrat candidate Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s 6th District special election, and three other less newsworthy special elections elsewhere in the US, it is only now starting to dawn on democrats that they might actually have a real leadership problem. Already accusative fingers have pointed to Nancy Pelosi, not that she’s not a dedicated Progressive, but because she has become the elderly face of the growingly dysfunctional Democrat Party and an albatross around the party’s neck.

In my essay of 19 June 2017, The Democrat Party’s Future?, I rhetorically asked:  “Who else do they have who could possibly stand for POTUS? Count any Democratic Senator or Congressman out.” A betrayed Bernie Sanders, at 79, will go his own way. Princess Elizabeth Warren may not even be reelected again as senator in her home state. Besides, she’s seventy, while Nancy Pelosi is 80. And Joe Biden? Naw, at 78, he’s just a silly ol’ goose that has lost his luster! Schumer is delusional and will never leave the Senate. The reality is now setting in.

Already young democrat congressmen, some we have never heard of before, are being interviewed by radio hosts, both progressive and conservative on the Democrat party’s problems, and their response is the same. Their elderly leadership is totally out of any ideas except the imperative that Trump be impeached and replaced with their champion Hillary Clinton who won the majority vote. Of course, they won’t recognize that the voter registration fraud investigation now underway, has already revealed enough ineligible voters found makes Trumps claim, that he actually won the popular vote, a reality. Forget Hillary too. She’s through.

One or two mentioned that the Democrat congressional leadership is so focused on alleged Russian interference in the election, collusion and collaboration, and Comey’s illegal firing, none of which have any basis in truth, that they failed to watch their backs while Trump goes about happily repealing and replacing the hundreds of Obama’s restrictive rules and regulations strangling the American economy.  Americans want jobs. Nobody cares about Russia. One interviewee even noted the hypocrisy of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer railing on about the GOP’s repeal and replacement of the failing Obamacare without Democrat input into the GOP’s plan, which was exactly what the Democrats did when forcing Obamacare on a willing American public.

The Democrat party, having long ago embraced socialism, has cunningly, slowly and most intentionally set about dividing Americans. The ADA was integral to that effort. In his Progressive enthusiasm at seeing the coming end of America, Obama chucked the final spear that divided us and assumed that all Americans would gladly go along with it. They didn’t!

Today, there is no political unity in our ultra-polarized country, and honestly, there shouldn’t be. The polarization exists because the Marxist side wants to “fundamentally transform” America, meaning to destroy the things that make America exceptional. There will never be a return to bipartisanship such as the #Never Trump Republican, John Kasich envisions, because Democrats are really not our friends holding different opinions. They are dyed in the wool, hard line communists of the Marxist variety and do not intend to lose the gains they have spent decades creating without a fight, even if it spills out onto our streets. As we see, it already has. Democrat hostility and character assassination is political theater meant to fool the base into thinking the party is on their side and cares for them. Sadly, Republicans elites too often feel it their duty to appease the left and defend their corruption.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (23Jun17)

Jon Ossoff Meets his Opposition: Not Republicans, but Democrats, Slotin wants to know where’s Ossoff’s financial report & why the DNC and DCCC are showing candidate support

Featured, Politics

The Georgia Sixth District Congressional Forum, hosted Sunday, March 12th in Roswell,GA by ‘Needles in a Haystack,’ had over 500 attendees.  The democratic voters and candidates hope to ‘flip the sixth,’ by changing the historically, congressionally Republican led district to a Democratic district.

According to a straw poll taken at the forum, Jon Ossoff is the most supported candidate by a landslide. Yet, the other candidates; Ragin Edwards, Ron Slotin, Rebecca Quigg and Richard Keatley made clear they are still in the race.

Not only does Ossoff have the expressed support from the Sixth District according to the straw poll; but according to Ossoff, his campaign has raised over three million dollars in only seven weeks. Further, he is covered more than any other Democratic candidate by national media; including the New York Times, Esquire and Heavy.

While other candidates at the forum expressed the need for unification among the Sixth District Democrats, Ossoff stated he believes the effort to flip the sixth district has unified the Democrats already. Evidently, Ossoff is not on the same page as the other candidates.

Slotin has extensive political experience. He has served two terms in the State Senate, was involved in the passing of the HOPE Scholarship, has volunteered for various organizations in the sixth district for over fifteen years and more.

 

slotinSlotin stated, “I have the best chance to beat the Republicans in the runoff in this election.” Slotin then threw a curveball when he asked the audience, “I want to know if anyone is here from the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) or the National Democratic Party? Because I want to ask them, why are they getting involved in this election?” Slotin said “You don’t see the RNC (Republican National Committee) getting involved with Republican Candidates”  Slotin brings up interesting points.

Further, Slotin attacked Ossoff at the forum for not yet filing his federal campaign finance reports. Slotin stated, “Jon did not turn in his financial statements.” Ossoff replied by stating that the deadline for finances is not until April 18th.

Meanwhile, Keatley encouraged voters to stay open-minded to all candidates by stating, “Suspend your judgement, there are many forums coming up.” He also stated, “The people in this district should decide who wins this election,” and finally, “It’s about communicating with people and having a face that they know is not bullshitting them.”
