The Criminal Party

Opinion

The Democrat party has made winning elections an art form. Their speculation knows no bounds,
abides by no rules, except their own, and would not consider for a second, capitulating to the
inevitable until all votes are counted including those from unknown precincts that suddenly were
found in the trunk of a car or stacked on the shelves in someone’s office. They were never
reported loss but, now they are found. Imagine than, an amazing grace.

In Georgia, the extreme radical left wing socialist Democrat candidate for governor, Stacy
Abrams, came up short in the general election vote count, even for the number required for a
run-off so, in typical Democrat fashion her minions filed a law suit in the US District Court for
Middle Georgia, to allow absentee ballots from Dougherty County to be counted, so long as they
were postmarked on or before Nov. 6 or received by last Friday.

Well, guess what Federal Judge is charged with supervising the suit. It’s Leslie Abrams, an
Obama appointee and, Oh, Joy! the sister of candidate Stacy Abrams. Should one anticipate a
possible conflict of interest here? Will she be asked to recuse herself? Democrats, like Chuckie
Schumer will insist, with a straight face, that Leslie Abrams is an honest duly appointed Judge
whose integrity can not be questioned, etc. & etc.

Democrats, through shenanigans like Abrams is pulling, simply will not concede an election until
the Supreme Court of the US makes a final decision. In the meantime, a trove, of Democrat-leaning
provisional ballots, 1,811 to be exact, were discovered in Fulton County Georgia, that, if
believed, could yield results in her favor even though the “trove” is filled with duplicates, wrong
names and wrong signatures. 42% of those provisional ballots were in fact rejected.

Florida is another case in point. Three counties there, Dade, Broward and Palm Beach, are
officially deemed corrupt almost beyond repair. Post-election Florida faces a statewide recount
for both the Governor and Senate races. Protesters have assembled at the core site of the
storm raging over both races and that is the long suspected of election criminality, Broward
Election Supervisor, Brenda Snipes.

Snipes held a Press Conference and didn’t show up. Brenda Snipes, is a wicked elderly lady
with straight white hair, and dedicated to socialisms advancement. She reminds me of an
African version of Disney’s witch in ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ In any event, she has
a history of losing, misplacing or burning ballots if the outcome doesn’t agree with the needs of
the Democrat Party. Snipes’s lawyers was asked “how the voters of Florida can expect to have
any confidence in the integrity of the election process in Broward County when Brenda Snipes
“was found by a judge to have destroyed ballots in the race between Tin Canova and Debbie
Wasserman-Schultz?”

A follow up question was how to explain it was ‘transparent’ to have a woman who’s been found
to have destroyed ballots overseeing an election? Those ballots, it was claimed, had been
counted and weren’t relevant to this election. Brenda Snipes has a well documented history of
destroying ballots and breaking the law, yet, she remains in her sincere, rising from the swamp
muck every two or four years to ensure her party’s victory.

A reckoning has to come. Republicans are starting to fight back, for what little good it might do if
the system is rigged, but it’s a start. The fascists are on the move. What’s next, more violence?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get’m! (12Nov18)

Kemp to resign as secretary of state at noon today

News, Politics

ATLANTA – Republican Brian Kemp announced that he will officially resign as secretary of state at 11:59 a.m. today and begin the transition to become Georgia’s next governor immediately.

Kemp is currently the state’s top elections official. Governor Nathan Deal will then appoint an interim secretary of state who will certify Tuesday’s election in which he defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams.

Kemp declared victory in the race, but Abrams said she will not concede the election until all provisional ballots are counted. Officials have said she would need 2,500 provisional votes to force a runoff. Kemp said today that only about 2,000 provisional votes remain uncounted.

Geoff Duncan

Forsyth County’s Geoff Duncan has claimed victory in the race for Lt. Governor over Democrat Sarah Riggs Amico.  Duncan has received 51.83 percent in the two-person race.

Stakes are incredibly high in Tuesday’s election

News, Politics

Brian Kemp

CLEVELAND, Ga. – On election eve, the stakes in the 2018 midterm election could not be higher. That was reflected in the record-setting turnout during the three-week, in-person, advanced voting session that saw 2.1 million Georgians cast their votes.

Here in White County, interest in this election is higher than ever. Eletions Supervisor Lisa Manning reported last week that 5,422 residents voted early.

Stacey Abrams

At the top of the ballot is the race for Governor where conservative Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp faces liberal Democrat former House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams.

The candidates could not be more different. Kemp opposes the expansion of Medicaid. Abrams supports expansion. Kemp wants to deport illegal immigrants and ban sanctuary cities. Abrams opposes clamping down on illegal immigration and wants to provide a pathway to citizenship. Kemp wants Georgia to have the toughest abortion restrictions in the U.S. Abrams opposes additional restrictions on abortion. Kemp wants to preserve the HOPE scholarship but opposes letting undocumented students access the ll

Geoff Duncan

The third candidate in the race, Libertarian Ted Metz, could play the spoiler role. Pollsters say the race between Kemp and Abrams is razor thin and neither has crossed the 50 percent barrier that would prevent an unprecedented four-week runoff.

While the governor’s race has gained nationwide attention, there are other important races on the ballot.

Republican Geoff Duncan of Forsyth County and Democrat Sarah Riggs Amico are running for lieutenant governor. The candidates for Secretary of State are Brad Raffensperger (R), John Barrow(R), and Smyth Duval (L).

The race for Attorney General is between Gary Black (R) and Fred Swann (D).

Incumbent Republican U.S. Representative Doug Collins faces a challenge from Democrat Josh McCall in the 9th District.

There are also five constitutional amendments for voters to decide and two statewide referenda.

White County records 5,422 votes in early voting

News, Politics

CLEVELAND, Ga. – Pollsters say high turnouts in Georgia’s rural counties will benefit Secretary of State Brian Kemp in his campaign against Democrat Stacey Abrams to become the state’s next governor. Early voting ended Friday and if White County is a barometer, the Republican is in great shape.

Election Supervisor Lisa Manning reports that nearly 5,000 new voters have registered since the 2014 midterm election and 5,422 votes were cast during the three-week advance voting session, compared to only 2,277 in 2014. Also, 480 absentee ballots have been returned compared to 300 in 2014.

The two candidates are setting fundraising records, with Kemp reporting nearly $21 million compared to Abrams. However, as of Oct. 25, Abrams had $4.2 million remaining, compared to Abrams $3.9 million. That could be a significant factor in a race that most experts say, at this point, is too close to call.

White County early voting turnout triples 2014 midterm election

Election 2018, News

Lisa Manning

CLEVELAND, Ga. – Voters all across Georgia rushed to polling places in what appears to be record numbers during the first week of in-person, early voting last week and White County was no exception.

Statewide, nearly three times as many people (482,435) voted last week compared with the last midterm election according to a report by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

White County Chief Registrar Lisa Manning reported that 1,661 votes were cast last week compared to only 433 during the first week of advanced voting during the last midterm election in 2014. She added that 500 absentee ballots were mailed.

It is difficult to say whether White County voters were more motivated by what appears to be a very close and increasingly bitter race between Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams for governor or national issues like control of the U.S. House and Senate, illegal immigration and the farcical hearing for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

In-person early voting in Georgia will continue for two more weeks until Nov. 2, including at least one Saturday, Oct. 27. Election Day is Nov. 6 when polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

The website Georgia Votes reports that about 61 percent of early voters so far are white and 29 percent are black. Almost 30 percent of early voters didn’t cast a ballot in 2014.

Despite the large number of voters, Manning said voting went smoothly all five days with very few glitches.

Brian Kemp silent on allowing voters to decide on official English

Opinion

 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?

Advanced voting in general election begins Oct. 15

Election 2018, News, Politics

 

Brian Kemp

CLEVELAND, Ga. – Advanced voting for the 2018 General Election begins next week and Georgia is the home of one of the most intriguing – and expensive — gubernatorial races in the nation.

Pollsters say the race is neck and neck. On Sept. 6, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution/Channel 2 Action News poll had it 45 percent for Republican Brian Kemp, 45 percent for Democrat Stacey Abrams, 2 percent for independent Ted Metz and 7.5 percent undecided.

Folks who make a living analyzing political races say the Democrats had the momentum and that anger over President Donald Trump’s policies was driving increased voter registration on the left. But that was before the bitterly divisive hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Infuriated by the “guilty until proven innocent” uncorroborated sexual assault accusations of the liberal left, Republicans have seized the momentum and can be expected to turnout in record numbers to support Kemp.

Stacey Abrams

Health insurance is one key policy difference between the two leading candidates. Abrams supports Medicaid expansion. Kemp says it would bankrupt the state.

Kemp carries the endorsement of President Donald Trump into the election. Abrams is the darling of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton, who hope to change the color of Georgia from red to blue.

Advanced voting will be held Monday through Friday from Oct 15 through November 2 between the hours of 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Voters may also cast a ballot on Saturday Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. All advanced voting in White County will take place at the Mauney Building, 1241 Helen Highway, Cleveland. The General Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. when all precincts will be open.

A large number of candidates who will appear on the ballot are running unopposed. They include State Senator Steve Gooch, State Representative John Wilkinson, State Representative Matt Gurtler and Northeast Judicial District Attorney Lee Darragh. In addition to choosing political candidates, voters will have an opportunity to vote on five proposed Constitutional amendments and two statewide referendums.
