GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Reps. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Austin Scott (R-Ga.), and Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.) today sent a letter to Windstream underscoring the importance of providing increased access to broadband – particularly in rural areas – in the midst of COVID-19.
“As representatives of thousands of Windstream customers, we write today regarding the impact coronavirus has had on broadband access in rural communities throughout Georgia,” they wrote. “In the past, we have written to you regarding the inadequate internet service our constituents are receiving despite your company’s acceptance of federal dollars to expand access. While we know Windstream has upgraded some areas that are more populated and less rural, many of our constituents continue to struggle with poor broadband speeds.”
For years, Windstream customers across Georgia have consistently struggled to gain access to reliable broadband speeds. Congress has taken significant steps toward expanding rural broadband infrastructure in recent years, including securing federal funding to providers in rural areas. However, some carriers – like Windstream – have failed to provide adequate broadband speeds to consumers despite collecting taxpayer dollars. As this pandemic is forcing more and more Georgians to rely on the internet, access to reliable broadband is more critical than ever before.
“Due to the coronavirus outbreak, thousands of Georgians are being forced to work, learn, and recreate from home. This undoubtedly has increased the strain on the networks your consumers depend upon. Over the past several years, we have heard complaints of a network that is overburdened and cannot keep up during peak use. Even though we have been calling for increased internet access in rural areas for years, this moment in time shows that Windstream has yet to meet the mark.”

BLAIRSVILLE, Ga – The ladies of Union, Towns, and Rabun Republican parties expressed their support for President Trump through creativity at the inventive Hats off for Trump event on Feb. 27. They also heard from Republican National Committee (RNC) Committeewoman for Georgia Ginger Howard, who brought the Trump 2020 campaign bus.
Held at The View Grill in Blairsville, Ga, more than 90 GOP women gathered, wearing their unique Trump hats in all shapes and sizes – almost as if the Kentucky Derby came to North Georgia.
Howard entertained the audience with stories about the President of the United States, including one about Trump offering Tic-Tacs to RNC committee members.
“I’m so excited to be with a bunch of women who love our President,” exclaimed Howard.
Howard, originally from Waycross, Ga, has served as RNC Committeewoman for the last three and half years but has worked in politics for the past 20 years. Her goal is to make everyone excited to be a conservative, a Republican, and to vote for President Trump. She even joked that she has an “uber ministry” to tell drivers about Jesus and Trump.
“President Trump has done so much for our country,” said Howard. “President Trump is a fighter and he fights for us every single day!”
Underscoring the fight between socialism and America, Howard encouraged everyone to get out and fight for Trump, and their values, because one person can make a difference.
“Our economy has never been better. Our unemployment rate has never been better. The black unemployment rate, the Asian unemployment rate, the women unemployment rate [have never been better]. God help the man who doesn’t see what President Trump has done for this county and women,” Howard asserted.
In the latest jobs report from the Department of Labor, the overall unemployment rate was 3.6 percent, an uptick from 3.5 percent in December 2019.
“Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (3.3 percent), adult women (3.2 percent), teenagers (12.2 percent), Whites (3.1 percent), Blacks (6.0 percent), Asians (3.0 percent), and Hispanics (4.3 percent) showed little or no change over the month.” – Bureau of Labor Statistics Report
Approximately 183,000 reentered the job force in the January 2020 report, and long-time unemployed made up 19.9 percent of the unemployment numbers at 1.2 million. The labor force participation rate increased by 0.2 percentage points to 63.4 percent. The Department of Labor listed 4.2 million as part-time for economic reasons. These individuals would have preferred full-time positions but couldn’t find a job or experienced a reduction of hours. 1.3 million were marginally attached to the labor force. They weren’t counted in the unemployed because it had been more than four weeks since their last job search. However, they do want to work. Discouraged workers came in around 337,000.
Howard also expressed how the Trump message has resonated with the people. She’s raised over $100,000 for the reelection campaign.
Additionally, the stir the Trump bus created in the local community served as evidence of that fact. Union County Sheriff’s Deputies (UCSO) turned up to take pictures with Keep America Great bus, along with several passersby.
After Howard finished speaking, the GOP women gave three awards for best overall, most creative, and GRITS hats. Howard loved the hats and thought this event should go nationwide.
One House of Representatives in the Ninth District candidate was in attendance, Maria Stickland. Currently, she’s the lone woman in the crowded field.
Fetch Your News asked her if she believed it was time for a woman to represent the Ninth.
“I think so. I’m strong. I’m a hard worker. I’m 26 years in law enforcement, I’m retired,” said Stickland. “I know I can work hard and represent the Ninth District.”
Strickland added she doesn’t come from politics and is a true conservative Republican. It’s time for a strong woman from Georgia to help President Trump accomplish his goals for the country.
“If we keep sending the same career establishment politicians, we’re going to get the same outcome. We need someone new. We need an outsider, like myself. We need me to go up there and get these things done,” affirmed Strickland.
Georgia House District 8 candidate Stan Gunter’s wife also attended the event. Currently, Gunter is running unopposed on the Republican ticket but does have a Democrat opponent. However, this could change since qualifying begins on March 2nd.

Many times during my 36 years of teaching, I’ve seen the results of bullying.
Has anyone ever thought of the fact that most of our Christmas songs and traditions are only
about 75 or so years old? Doesn’t it seem like this array has just always been there, always been
Well, it hasn’t always been so joyous and celebrated as it came to be after World War II.
Why is that?
Prior to the victory of the Allies and their return to home and family, Christmas was more
reserved and localized. Songs such as The Messiah and other religious hymns were in place, but
jolly and more secular songs came along with popular movies, such as White Christmas and
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, among others were the result of a desire to make the
Christmas holiday a very special time for families and friends.
Dad, brother, uncle, son and military women etc. had faced the horror of war, with its death and
destruction. There were sights that they could never unsee. Those who were able to return home,
to their wives, husbands, sweethearts and families, wanted to erase those thoughts to the best of
their ability. They had fought pure, unadulterated evil and had won. It seemed their intention to
eradicate such influences in the years to come.
Many of our Greatest Generation put a great deal of time and effort into making the world as
right as possible, to bring as much joy as possible to those they loved. Not only did they save the
world, they saved the best part of themselves and shared that desire for happiness and perfection
with the making of happy stories, happy songs and familiar bliss. No one can argue that the
generation of the 40s and 50’s worked very hard to create as much perfection in society as they
could. It was a halcyon time that, unfortunately, will never be repeated.
Television and movies had their morality department and strived to show family life as a
network of love, discipline and happy endings. Father always knew best and the Donna Reed
show lauded the middle-class family life.
What has happened to society that it has come from the pure entertainment of those shows to
today’s reality television, moral corruption and disdain of most things that relate to God and
In 1965, a wonderful radio announcer named Paul Harvey made an amazing prophecy on his
weekly show. The title was, If I was the devil.
Anyone who hasn’t heard or read this far-reaching piece that has come to pass in ways that no
one would have guessed. One of his lines quoted from the transcript is “If I were the devil, I
would make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.”
How close is that? He had it nailed and 54 years later, it is true.
Christmas was still reverent in the 70s, and the 80s. People dressed up, had parties, visited with
family and it was a happy time. God was still the Man in Charge in the White House (mostly)
and it reflected on the nation.
The 90s brought us the Clintons and their version of “morality” and the great decline began for
Now in 2019, there are fewer parties, fewer gathering of family and friends than ever. Christmas
cards are not a thing anymore, just send a generic online greeting.
People are well engrossed in their electronic devices. Social life and the moral pressure of
society is long gone. Stores decorate for Christmas in August and begin the big sale that lasts
until well after the New Year.
Retailers completely pass over Thanksgiving, a uniquely American holiday from the Pilgrim
days when living through the winter to harvest was an occasion for thanking Almighty God.
Even Charlie Brown and his gang in Peanuts, when it aired in 1965, complained of the
commercialization of Christmas, lamenting the lack of meaning for monetary gain.
When Christmas songs from the 70s and 80s are played, it is depressing almost to the point of
tears when a comparison is made of the warm, loving, wonderful time of those decades to
today’s commercial apathy.
Maybe, this is an “old folks’ rant about the good old days, but what can be gleaned from today’s
lukewarm electronic holiday?
America has best go back to Ronald Reagan and remember his line:
“If we ever forget we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
If Christians don’t stand up and fight for our basic joys of the Lord, His sacrifice for us
and the right to celebrate such, these rights will be taken away by the Liberal Left with
their Atheistic and destructive ways. There are no more free countries to find with such
liberties as we enjoy. They must not be lost, as they will never be found again.
GMFTO with #BKP #AnythingGoes BKP’s Opinion on Local, State and National news and politics.
Let’s talk Georgia 6th Congressional District this morning. Not so fast Karen Handel there is the #TheOtherCandidate
Our guest at 8:45 as the AJC refers to her “The other” candidate Marjorie Greene.
The U.S. Women’s National Team has been making headlines recently for victories as a team, and as individuals for political statements.
Last week, the team won their second back-to-back World Cup. Shortly after the game, player Allie Long was seen dropping an American flag during the post-game celebration. Her teammate Kelley O’Hara recognized the significance of a flag being dropped on the ground, and immediately scooped it up.
One report from The Daily Wire explained that Long dropped the flag to participate in a celebratory dance with teammate Megan Rapinoe. But the video quickly went viral and comments poured in criticizing Long for her carelessness and thanking O’Hara for stepping in.
It’s very possible that Long meant no disrespect, but just got caught up in the moment and didn’t know that an American flag is NEVER supposed to touch the ground. Nonetheless, millions of viewers were not happy.
If you watch the video, it doesn’t appear that Long is trying to make any sort of political statement by dropping the flag. However teammate Megan Rapinoe has CERTAINLY been making headlines recently for her statements.
Although Rapinoe is mainly known for being a phenomenal soccer player (she won both the Golden Ball and Golden Boot awards this year), her progressive ideals have, let’s just say…raised eyebrows. Rapinoe is very outspoken about her homosexuality and dislike of President Donald Trump. She has followed the example of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick by refusing to sing or put her hand over her heart during the National Anthem. The pose she makes after scoring a goal of standing with her arms outstretched is supposed to be a symbol of fighting for equal pay, race relations and issues at the United States/Mexican border.
For years athletes have used the attention given them for their athletic success as a means to shed light on their social platforms. There’s nothing wrong with that if they’re promoting awareness for a disease or a foundation that supports children with special needs. But should we as a society draw a line when it comes to political issues?
Some would say there’s no problem- depending on what they do to make the statement. Certainly being a famous athlete gives one more media attention than the average person. Like I mentioned in my last column post, there’s no difference in an athlete and an actor or actress, and they supply their endorsement all the time!
When Colin Kaepernick first kneeled during the National Anthem in 2016, many Americans were outraged. Not necessarily because of his protest of police brutality, but because he chose to do so in a way that many Americans found disrespectful to those who have served in the military. I was, and still am, one of those people. In my opinion Kaepernick and now Rapinoe are missing the mark. Kneeling or not showing respect during the National Anthem is to turn a blind eye to those who have sacrificed everything to give you the freedom to play your sport. It doesn’t have anything to do with first responders.
Nowadays there’s a gray area between sports segments and political talk shows. The two intersect on a daily basis. Just the other day on our live sports show, Instant Replay, my co-host Dave Garner and I had an entire segment dedicated to Nike’s decision to pull the sneakers with a design of the American flag sewn by Betsy Ross on the back. This decision was made after Kaepernick insisted that the flag had a racial history.
I suppose the whole reason this gray area exists is because of the technological advancements of the media. Celebrities who want use their status as a means to promote a certain viewpoint can do so more quickly because of how easy it is to post to Twitter. And in a society that demands news at every moment, something has to take up time in a sports show!
So back to the original question- should there be a line, and if so, where?
Here’s my opinion- sports is sports and politics is politics. Part of the reason I watch a football game or a baseball game is because I want to watch a football game or a baseball game. We are living in a time where politics are more divisive than ever before. One reasons sports are as big as they are today is because of the communities they create. Why should we mix something that causes so many problems to interfere with something that is supposed to help solve them?
When I turn on ESPN, I don’t want to listen to people debate over what is considered disrespectful to the National Anthem. And the next time I watch Fox News, I DARN sure don’t want to hear the name Colin Kaepernick.
Social Engineering America to Death
Social engineering schemes, such as the Progressive followers of Saul Alinsky (Democrats), keep applying by following his Rules for Radicals, constitute the deliberate and illegal attempt to change our society and our culture to meet societal norms that lay far outside the guidelines of the US Constitution. Indeed, Progressives firmly believe America is the center of all the world’s evils and the US Constitution that supports it, stands as an impediment to world social justice and must be done away with, one amendment at at time, if necessary.
Case in point, the constant progressive attack against the 2nd Amendment. It is the one defense Americans possess that can prevent the radical takeover of America. We also see a vigorous attack on our 1st Amendment rights coming from several fronts. Look at the first line”: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” That’s it, yet Progressives scream government(s) cannot recognize prayer, posting of the Ten Commandments or support Christian based activities because of some non-existent “Separation of Church and State” nonsense that’s not in there. As often as I have read that sentence, I’m still unable to lay my finger on any word that prohibits government from supporting or participating in any religious activity, not monetarily of course, but morally. Yet the “Left” persists on insisting that the ‘separation of church and state’ is a point of law not to be violated and we believe ‘em!
What the 1st amendment does state, unequivocally, is that Government shall not establish an official state church, a reaction to the religious turmoil that plunged Great Britain into bloody conflict for generations. That will become a mute point of course, when adherents of Islam start rising as elected government officials to the point they will, by their sheer numbers alone, out number and out vote non-muslims (infidels) and replace the Constitution with Sharia Law.
Free speech is also under attack, not so subtly, by the media, Facebook and Twitter crowd simply by not posting conservative opinions. The radical take over of many colleges and universities forbid Conservative speakers on campus. They will assault conservative students dispensing Trump hats, etc., and are encouraged by school administrations to do so. The Radicals have so scared college administrations with the threat of violence, most officials, if not already radicalized, dare not complain. If Conservatives assemble peaceably, they are attacked by radical goon squads (antifa’s, BLM) and even made to look like the conservatives started it.
Presently, Congressional Democrats adamantly refuse to protect our borders from invasion by the hoards of peons from Mexico and Central America, schooled to ask for ‘asylum.’ Suborning this invasion is to support social engineering designed to increase Progressives voter rolls. Now, the southern invasion is overwhelming the CBP’s efforts to stem the tide, another Alinsky rule, they will soon overwhelm our financial ability to support ‘em as well. Asylum requests should only be heard at US Embassy’s and Consulates, not at borders.
Why do we need to accept them? Because Democrats insisted “it was the thing to do, it’s who we are,” drawing on our sympathies as Americans who are always ready to help the poor and destitute, while they gun down, rape and murder our own citizens. That day, I believe, is soon coming to an end. We cannot afford to support other countries citizens. That doesn’t matter to Democrats. They’ll simply say take the funds from Defense and, you’re racist if you don’t! Trump will not do that, but he’ll take the funds from those countries we are already supporting.
Our banking laws are a hinderance to the control of unwanted foreign populations demanding to stay here because they’re already here. All foreigners here should be required to establish American banking accounts. No money sent abroad without an American bank account.
For example, If an American retires to Mexico, the retiree(s) cannot continue to maintain their American bank accounts. They must open a Mexican bank account. Why don’t we do that? Why can we not forbid the telegraphing of cash money orders via Wester Union to foreign countries, without going first through American Banks? Control the money and you control the population.
If we stopped financial support to them when they do get here, the monetary draw to come would cease. Those already here illegally, should be advised they have three months to sell their property, keep the receipts and return to their home countries or, the American government will do it for them and keep the proceeds to help defray the cost of their evacuation.
Finally, I want to know by what measure illegals are entitled to my Social Security money, my medicare benefits and our tax money for their education and housing. That was a Progressive Democrat idea, because “we’re good people and mean well.” Turn off the money spigot at all levels and the invasion(s) will cease. We owe these people nothing!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
There is much ado about the 2019 freshman Congress’ high opinion of the practices of Socialism and Communism.
One freshman in particular, New York’s Alejandra Ocasio Cortes, is appearing in many news casts and has sound bites praising the values of Socialism and its equality while denigrating the practice of Capitalism.
While she is making her policies known on all of the fake news stations, upon review, I often wonder if they aren’t just making fun of her and allowing her to embarrass herself. Perhaps, they are just setting her up for a future fall from grace when she wants to advance politically.
Alejandra Ocasio Cortes has gone so far as to call Capitalism and those who have benefited financially from this way of life as immoral.
Immoral, what does that mean?
Immorality is not conforming to accepted standards of morality. Adjectives to describe immorality include evil, unscrupulous or bad etc.
Cortes doesn’t claim that the people of billionaire status are immoral, just the successfulness of their business practices and the collection of wealth from said businesses is immoral.
She claims, “Any system that allows billionaires to exist is immoral.” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3722010/posts?page=1
Why would Capitalism be immoral? Isn’t it said that if you build a better mousetrap, the world will flock to your door? Why shouldn’t the one who works the hardest and has the best product or service be allowed to collect the benefits of his or her labor?
Hasn’t Capitalism provided the highest standard of living for more people than any other in the world?
Her reasoning is that it’s unjust that some are billionaires and others suffer from conditions, “such as ringworm” because they cannot access public healthcare as they reside in a rural area.
Her ideas tend to appeal to the Millennial generation, so a good example of a billionaire that all young people will recognize is Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks.
Here is an example of a person who lived in a poverty stricken area, who longed to improve his lot in life. He began with a scholarship to play football for Northern Michigan College and worked for Xerox after graduation. https://www.inc.com/business-insider/billionaires-who-went-from-rags-to-riches.html
He later took over a small chain of coffee shops called Starbucks, which then had 60 stores, which has grown to 16,000 stores under his leadership.
His is a definite rags to riches story, whose first step to his success today was a desire to succeed and most importantly, EDUCATION. (He isn’t the only one, there are many and I am sure none of their success was given to them.)
Why is this man’s wealth to be considered immoral? No one knows what kind of charity work he may or may not carry out. The money was earned by him, and it is doubtful if his success was won by sitting on the couch holding out his hands and wishing really hard.
The ideas presented by Alejandra Ocasio Cortes and others who embrace Socialism and Communism spring from an age old place. This “desire” to see all in equal terms stems from old fashioned covetousness!
The Bible says no one is to covet his neighbor’s goods or spouse.
To covet means to desire what someone else has in deep seated, all-encompassing way. The coveter is not interested in how their neighbor worked for and holds his goods or spouse. The person of a covetous nature just WANTS what someone else has.
The liberal left is the most easily offended and butt hurt division of the United States. Given the definitions and causes stated above, it stands to reason that they must be the most covetous.
Politicians such as New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio recently gave a speech where he stated, “There is plenty of money in the world, plenty of money in the state, it’s just in the wrong hands.”
Bill DeBlasio’s net worth is 1.5 million dollars. https://www.celebritynetworth.com/richest-politicians/democrats/bill-de-blasio-net-worth/
Sure, he’s a light weight in comparison to New York’s Governor Cuomo, whose net worth is 5 million, but they are both wealthy.
When does the Mayor plan to pass out his money? Or are his hands, the “right” hands?
When a politician says such things, he incites a covetousness in those who feel that it is unfair for one person to have more than another.
The fact that in a society such as the United States, everyone has the opportunity to achieve, given desire and hard work, it is only sloth that can hold anyone back. One may not be successful every time, but everyone has many of the same chances.
So the Right fights principals with the Left because of the deep seated covetousness in the hearts of those who cannot or chose not to succeed.
I’m dumbstruck when I consider all the money authorized and wasted by the Republican
controlled congress over the past two years, on the baseless Trump-Russia collusion fallacy
when the low hanging fruit of the Clinton’s RICO reeking cabal that is Bill and Hillary’s self
sustaining charitable foundation offers such low hanging fruit so ripe for the picking that even
the most incompetent federal prosecutor, even one with a mail order degree, could win.
The avowed criminal, former FBI Director James Comey, by his own admission, is one of those
low hanging fruits ready for easy harvesting. He should be a “slam-dunk” for prosecution. So is
Andy McCabe and Peter Strzok, Bruce Orr and the several previously disgraced attorneys
serving on Mueller’s team of Trump hating investigators. (Sen Stevens R-AK)
Now that Pelosi and her stable of mindless idiot socialists are soon to take over the House, the
GOP has finally decided, in its last three weeks of existence, to consider the crimes of the
Clinton Foundation ignored by the DoJ, and investigate ‘em themselves. It’s all Nonsense!
Pushed for time the GOP has now decided they had better look like they are doing something to
appease the base. But remember, most of these people are still part of the “uni-party’ that is the
deep state, many of them still hate Donald Trump.
Taking down the Clintons should be easy via her foundation. Hillary, the driving force of her
foundation’s corruption, unfortunately, lacks the people skills that should keep the little people
under her, the now mass of whistleblowers coming forward, from turning “states evidence” and
dropping a dime. Many have physical evidence proving her corruption and now we learn that
one whistleblower has been the recipient of a late night FBI search warrant. Why was that? He
already gave them everything he had. It was to shut him and other whistleblowers up.
The mafia does that for their own security except they don’t take chances; the whistleblower is
usually killed publicly, for all to see so that other witnesses will readjust their commitment to law
and order. Right now, a bunch of former Clinton employees, State Dept. employees and others,
who Hillary held in contempt as simply “little people,” servants beneath her dignity, are ready to
dump on her. So, let’s get it going.
The former senior executive levels of the FBI, Director James Comey, and his associates,
considered themselves sacrosanct when it comes to enforcing the law of the United States,
except when the law interferes with their own needs. At the moment, they want Trump out of
office before they lose everything and, hiding behind the facade of counterintelligence, they set
about fabricating a case against Donald Trump, because he won and their favorite, Hillary
Clinton, didn’t. That is injustice personified and corruption at its most apparent.
One of their early targets was Trumps National Security advisor, Lt. Gen. Flynn, former Director
of the DIA, with a distinguished thirty-year army career. Through ruse and subterfuge, they
tricked the general into making statements, not under Miranda warning, that they claimed were
lies. Lying to the FBI constitutes a serious crime if nothing else can be proven. It now appears
the Federal judge involved in the Flynn case has serious doubts about the FBI’s handling of the
Flynn case. Flynn pled ‘guilty’ just to avoid bankruptcy but, none the less, he was left near
destitute, in penury. That’s injustice personified. What do we learn from this tawdry business?
Stay out of politics? Perhaps! Trust the judiciary to do the right thing or absolutely never, ever
speak to or trust the FBI? All apply.
Remember, Liberty is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (13Dec18)
Clearly, daily White House press corps gatherings are losing their allure and their effectiveness.
Thrill seekers disguised as reporters or worse, journalists, primarily of the Liberal-Progressive
bent, are intent on making themselves the news by challenging the press secretary’s every
comment including her weight, size, candor and/or her intelligence, not to mention the President
himself, not by asking questions pertinent to current issues but by taking irresolute stands
contrary to the facts and demanding answers even when told to sit down and shut up. Their
obnoxiousness is mind numbing and the whole business should be abandoned.
The White House controls the news briefings not Jim Acosta or the other Liberal creatures
dedicated to the Presidents destruction. These people are functionally illiterate, solely dedicated
to challenging the administration at any and every level of the daily news cycle, intent only on
becoming famous themselves.
Perhaps this daily event should no longer be televised, just audio recorded. Perhaps a bulletin
board could be erected on the street where daily items of interest can be posted by a WH press
staffer. Many even a chap with a bell, at noon, crying “hear ye, hear ye,” I don’t know, but this
crazed media frenzy has gotten out of hand and needs to be returned to civility or abandoned.
So, what is the news? Thousands of immigrants in a caravan, declaring their intentions to seek
amnesty in America, do constitute an invasion. The Liberal press spends their face time on such
trivial matters challenging the president directly as to his definition of what’s an invasion. I know
what one looks like, don’t you? While America faces challenges from winning Democrats,
determined to make America Socialist, the silence that falls from the normally boastful democrat
side is ignored. What do they know that we don’t? Something big is going on out there and it’s
being ignored for who defines what constitutes illegal immigrants.
These WH press people, in the face of more news of mass shootings by one deranged person,
will challenge gun laws as ineffective while ignoring the deranged person. They don’t want a
solution, they want an issue to thrash the president with and gun laws don’t do it anymore.
Other interesting happenings all but ignored by the WH press corps was AG Jeff Sessions
departure, his temporary replacement, who is to be the new US Ambassador to the UN, who’s
the new WH lawyer? what’s the view on the potential inditement’s soon to flow against the multi-
level layers of Obama’s hangers-on still in government who have, and still are, actively engaged
against the government?
The post-election news cycle revealed, but isn’t discussed, the fact that every candidate
Trump stumped for won their election because the candidate threw in with a successful
president; and every candidate Obama stumped for, lost. Everyone! That should be newsworthy
. It might explain why the Democrats aren’t boasting as they usually do.
Speaking of which, Nancy Pelosi faces imminent danger. First, she entering a realm of extreme
dementia as her performance at press conferences demonstrate. Coherent thought, recall of
people, places and things turn into babble and she faces a hostile democrat cacuse of young
leftists determined to replace her before she sinks the little hope remaining for survival the
Democrats achieved in their retaking the house. The 2020 presidential re-election campaign has
commenced. The media failed in bringing Trump down in his first two years. What’s next”
Stayed tuned. Remember, freedom is the goal the constitution is the way. Go, get ‘em (8Nov18)
The Democrat tergiversation of their once rock-solid position on illegal immigration and how to
protect our country from it is so shameful that it shocks the very foundations of our long and
respected adherence to republican constitutionalism. The shame! The Left isn’t shamed!
Good ol’ Harry Reid, the hypocrite, when he was Senate Majority Leader, once spoke out
eloquently on the subject saying that America had a duty to protect its borders and should do so
by changing the law to forbid the idea of anchor babies as legitimate American citizens as the
14th amendment was then, and still is, interpreted. “If you grant citizenship to children of parents
who have no lawful right to be in the United States, you’ll get more would-be parents attempting
to enter the United States unlawfully.” Thousands are approaching our border right now.
Harry even wrote a law for consideration. Reid’s 1993 proposal was intended to try to change
the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment by an Act of Congress, i.e.: a law. The basis of
Reid’s proposal was to: “declare that any person born after the date of enactment of this title to
a mother who is neither a citizen of the United States nor admitted to the United States as a
lawful permanent resident, and which person is a national or citizen of another country of which
either of his or her natural parents is a national or citizen or is entitled upon application to
become a national or citizen of such country, shall be considered as born subject to the
jurisdiction of that foreign country and not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States within
the meaning of section 1 of such Article and shall therefore not be a citizen of the United States
or of any State solely by reason of physical presence within the United States at the moment of
birth.” Well, obviously that didn’t catch hold but, if it had it would have then presented another
problem for the flip-flopping Democrats, how to get rid of it.
Senator, Barak Obama, once defended actions that would deny America birthrights to children
of illegal gate crashers. Then he signed DACA. How do you spell hypocrisy? Democrat?
Trump tossed out a signal that he would cease the practice of legalizing anchor babies born in
America to illegal mothers by executive order and, predictably, the left and its media went nuts
again. Trump is trolling them and they rise to his bait. There is an old saying that cautions:
“Never argue with an idiot because he’ll drag you down to his level and beat you to death with
his experience.” That might as well be said for Donald Trump. Don’t try to argue with him or
match him in the field of hardball argument. You’ll lose and look stupid doing it.
One of the arguments now rising asks how Trump’s Supreme Court would handle this issue if
the Congress actually passed a law forbidding the legitimation of birthright babies as US
citizens. It is suggested they would take their good time in serious debate and consideration and
probably find the law unconstitutional. In fact, an 1800’s era Supreme Court actually did so. But,
as constitutionalists, we know that can change because we also know that Roe vs. Wade is
unconstitutional and will, hopefully someday soon, find itself on the ash heap of liberal mistakes.
I mean, murder is murder, isn’t it? How does a potential real US citizen have the opportunity to
experience the constitutional guarantees of Life, Liberty and pursuit of happiness if they are
shredded in the womb before they even have the chance to find out? Just asking!
The Supreme Court cannot change the Constitution, only the laws that do not fit within its
construct. But, neither can they legislate. That’s not their job. This issue highlights the problem
of judicial activism that is the real danger to America. Maybe we can kill two birds with one
stone! Remember, freedom is the goal, the constitution is the way. No, go vote! (31Oct18)
According to the news media, no one likes Trump. Women hate Trump, African
Americans hate Trump, Latinos and on and on it goes.
That is why it is strange when the news shows a Trump Rally.
The arena is packed cheek by jowl in supporters. All are waving signs like Women for Trump,
Blacks for Trump etc. Outside the administration has to put up big screens like at a rock concert
for the overflow of people who will not fit in the venue.
In fact, for the Cruz rally in Texas, President Trump had to move to a larger event center in order
to accommodate the “unprecedented demand for tickets.”
Of course, no one does size like Texas, but the rally filled the Toyota Center in Houston and had
a huge tailgate/picnic of followers outside watching the screens.
If it is as Rosie O’Donnell says and these people are paid to attend, that must get pretty pricey.
(I have attended one of his rallies. I didn’t get a dime. I did get harassed by the protestors of
which the police politely watched. Later, I listened to the evening news and learned that there
were copious quantities of protestors and very few attendees to the rally. I saw about 150
protestors and the venue was full in every seat, plus the open floor was crammed with people as
Those two who will not go away, the also-rans, Obama and Southern border have had less
success in drawing a crowd lately.
In September, even in liberal California, Obama was only able to draw seven hundred and fifty
people to his ant-Trump rally in Anaheim.
Yes, a long time ago, before the public realized that he was smooth talking, treacherous, empty
promises, bag of wind, Obama could also draw quite a few people. Actions, which always speak
louder than words, must have betrayed him and perhaps his base has fled to the new prosperity
that America is enjoying now.
Hillary never could fill a venue when she was running for president anyway. The photographers
had to push all the people into a corner at times to get a shot of a “crowd.”
The media is in constant denial of the obvious difference in the number of people who are drawn
to these rallies.
Last Tuesday, the day after a Trump rally, CNN was running a tape that read,” Trump tells lies
and spreads fear before the election.”
Trump was referring to a “caravan” of about 5000 or so people headed for out Southern border.
So far, the group has grown in size exponentially. They have crashed through the borders of
Guatemala and Mexico. The governments there seem unable to stop them.
Trump suggests that perhaps the Democrats and George Soros had something to do with the
funding of the mass of people. That is his supposed “lie.”
However, it gives all the appearance of being a true statement.
Has anyone heard the first word or peep from the Democrats against this invasion?
NOTHING, NOT ONE WORD!
It is not a caravan of poor immigrants, humbly seeking asylum in order to be free.
No, when a foreign body comes bearing the flag of their country, cursing the President saying
“f*** Trump” to reporters and demanding entrance, it is an INVASION!”
These people appear well fed, they are clean and well dressed. They are purchasing merchandise
like televisions and food along the way. They are being bussed and given transport.
Where is all the money coming from to finance this venture?
The President has said he will deport regular troops to the border if necessary to stop these
people from coming across our borders.
All the bleeding heart liberals are complaining and wanting to be compassionate. They say the
President doesn’t have the right to deploy troops in defense of the border.
This is incorrect!
In 1952, The Immigration and Nationality Act was passed by Congress, clause 2012 of this bill
gives the President the power to use US troops as necessary to keep foreigners out of the United
It is the primary responsibility of the President to protect the citizens of the United States.
It is rumored that criminals and others with a nefarious agenda are numbered among the group
moving to the border.
If the Mexican government fails to stop this flow of people, President Trump will have no choice
but to stop it with force.
Other than Nancy Pelosi and some of her minions, most people want this surge stopped.
The United States cannot support the world or allow people who are either up to no good, or just
want a free ride to destroy our economy and nation.
Sorry, but using Johnny Carson’s stage entry line as a metaphor in an essay may be a bit churlish but damn it, it fits. That cheap schmuck Barak Obama simply couldn’t stand it anymore and had to come clambering back onto the political stage like he was really wanted.
Trumps robust America, almost out of the starting gate, is more that any marxist should have to endure. Barak’s brand of economic and social Obamaism that we endured for eight long miserable years, produced nothing meaningful for American except to apologize for Americas needed role of world leadership, import Islam, throw open our borders to the worlds peasants (voters), destroy American culture and kill American production and freedom by high taxes and over regulation. In the end, all he created was a “Deep State” that is struggling for its very survival under Trumps incessant pounding. After all, the State must be preserved at all costs.
So here comes Barak, the slick tongued, greasy used car salesman and community organizer, trying to claim credit for Trumps instinctive economic triumphs. He no longer apologizes for Americans supposed failures, but denigrates Trumps robust economy as actually the result of his policies of onerous regulation and oppressive taxation. They would have come to full bloom if only he had had a few more months. He trashes Trumps foreign policy as dangerous and war-mongering but his own policies, leading from behind, proved more dangerous to a stable world.
Comparisons in leadership, which he promotes, cannot stand comparison.
So, as expected, Obama slithered out of his dark hole to protect his legacy. Yes, he has one but its a legacy of failure in social, economic, political and foreign policy. According to Obama’s calculations, Trumps robust economy, the low unemployment numbers, higher incomes and jobs for all, wasn’t really the product of that awful Donald Trump, but was an economy he had primed and ready to spring upon the world if he had had just one more term. Oh, really?
Obama still draws a crowd of college students, but they don’t scream and holler like Trumps crowds do. His admirers cling to the hope that only Obama’s brand of Socialism can possibly succeed for America. Yet, the democrat party is morphing right before our eyes into something potentially dangerous if Conservatives don’t take to the stage as well to kill the dragon.
The Democrat Party is caught between a rock and a hard spot because the old socialists that made up the party for decades and have run the party into the ground, still retain leadership despite the dementia we see creeping in. They are now being challenged by an even more radical left-wing brand of Marxists in the guise of ignorant young millennials heartened by Bernie Sanders near success at achieving the 2016 Democrat nomination. They bought into the ‘entitlement for all’ notions, are not taking kindly to the current elderly democrat leadership.
Their disappointment was when it was revealed that Sanders was beaten out of the nomination by the skullduggery of Hillary’s Democrat machine, and that will not be forgiven. The new Marxist even have their own “shock troops” in the guise of Antifa’s and BLM’s for street deployment. And their politicians, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, et. al, are there to stir the pudding of what was once gentlemanly political debate.
America faces a crisis. The Marxists can still count enough voters, even dead ones, to change the character of local politics if conservatives don’t stay prepared. We must get out and vote. We cannot drop our guard or our America can be snatched back into the jaws of growing tyranny. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get’m! (09Sep18)
ELLIJAY, Ga. – Continuing his campaign for Governor, Hunter Hill made a stop in Ellijay on May 2 to speak with local citizens about his plans for the office if elected.
Hill spoke to local citizens over breakfast at Mike’s Ellijay Restaurant on Highway 282.
Hill is a former Army Ranger who has been in the State Senate for five years now. After resigning his seat in August to run for Governor, Hill has been focusing on his vision for Georgia and spreading that message to rally voters. Today, he spoke with citizens in Ellijay about the ideals for “less government, less taxes, and more freedom.”
With “career politicians,” as Hill noted, in office, it is an undermining of our values as a nation. He called out those politicians saying they were not even willing to risk their next election to uphold their oath.
Focusing more specifically on the recent issue of sanctuary cities. Adamantly against the topic, Hill said, “If a city or county in this state were to claim itself a sanctuary city, they would not receive a nickel of state funding.”
His second point on his vision for the office reiterated his opinions and intention to eliminate the state income tax. With bordering states already without an income tax, the competitive disadvantage is hurting our state, according to Hill. He went on to say replacing the income tax with a consumption tax setup would alleviate the tax burden from honest Georgians and redistribute that to everyone including visitors to the state and even those making money in illegal ways. Hill stated, “A broad-based consumption tax allows us to have more people that we’re bringing money in from, which allows us to do so at lower rates.”
On a personal note, Hill mentioned his faith pushed him to focus not only on the points of pro-life, pro-second amendment, and also religious liberty. FYN asked Hill if he would be seeking a “Faith Restoration Act” in his first year to which he replied, “Very good chance of that, yeah.”
Hill did confirm that he wanted to pursue faith-based adoption as a part of it saying, “We’ve got to protect our faith-based adoption agencies. We’ve just got to do it. A lot of the reasons that faith-based adoption agencies get involved is to be helpful in congruence with their faith. If you don’t protect their ability to do it in congruence with their faith, then they will just stop doing it altogether.”
Protecting people of faith and their ability to live and work based on that faith was a focus of Hill’s speech about the governor’s office, but also on his words about his future view of the state. He noted after winning on key policy issues aligned with our values and principals, he wanted to remind senators and house members of the values and principals that they were elected for, providing a singular vision to move forward under.
“Fighting for the people of Georgia” is what he says his focus is as Hill says he sees polls with him ahead of Kemp and closing in on Cagle. Separating himself, Hill says he’s not the career politician like Cagle and is very different than Kemp on issues like the income tax and limited government. But when comparing, Hill said he wanted to focus on his campaign and his vision to protect liberties and endorsements like the Georgia Right to Life to be a different candidate.
While most of those present were already Hill supporters like retired Gilmer county citizen, George Winn, who said he’s been a Hill supporter “all the way.” Based upon his stances as a military, Christian conservative who is a believable and trustworthy conservative.
Others like Ken Bailey find themselves supporting Hill as the best candidate. Following the campaign because “Hunter is not a politician. He is a fresh, young face and not a part of the established system, which needs to be broken up I think. I think he’s got good ideas. We don’t need to have a state income tax, that puts a handicap on us.” Bailey went on to say that he liked some of the other candidates and even knew some personally, but felt Hill was the best choice.
He also commented his appreciation of the choice in the election. With fine candidates available, Bailey said its great to not have to pick the best of a bad selection.
Hill continues his bus tour across Georgia with his final stop at the Cobb GOP Headquarters in Marietta on Saturday afternoon, May 2.
Extent of the Deep State:
The extent of the imbedded Deep State, an unholy corruption of ignorant worker bees in the peoples government is so pervasive, so tight and so protected that its very existence is mind blowing. That Obama weaponized federal agencies as political tools for the socialist Democrat party is undeniable but, I’m convinced that the rot started as far back as the Whitewater investigation in Arkansas as the Clinton’s began their political rise. Comey, the unlamented former director of the FBI was a young DoJ attorney in that inquiry then and other inquiries that protected the Clinton crime racket. He rose favorably through the ranks as a trusted confident, with their rise from State House to White House, owing his advancement to the only person who could be trusted to stand as a bulwark against potential future prosecution, Hillary Clinton.
We saw the IRS scandal with Lois Learner denying conservative groups lawful tax exemptions; we saw James Clapper, the DNI, lying to congress, We saw Clinton loyalist, James Comey, following Mueller in the FBI, doing what was expected of him, and the two incompetent AG’s, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, all doing what was required of them to protect the machine and do the machines bidding.
It wasn’t a fluke that Obama defeated Hillary Clinton as the 2008 Democrat nominee because Obama presented an opportunity the Left couldn’t resist using, an articulate, clean, half black Senator as candidate. But it was of little matter because Obama proved himself incompetent both as a political leader and a policy maker yet, it was still the Clintons who called the shots. Everything Obama laid his hand to failed, including his Director of the CIA, the muslim, John Brennen. They have all lied to Congress, lied to investigators or were abetted by them, for the sole purpose of denying justice and yet, they all remain unaccountable for their crimes.
Now, apparently still protected by the corrupted deep state, employees who once worked diligently to ensure Hillary succeeded as President on her second try, faced a formidable opponent, a businessman, like no one they ever met before. Losing again, Clinton’s Democrat deep state is determined to destroy that businessman, Donald Trump, or ruin his presidency.
That ‘destroying Trump part,’ totally exposed as a fraud and fake investigation is, in fact, seditious, an illegal plot to overthrow a sitting president. Every excuse they’ve used to justify warrants against Trumps staff people has turned out to be bogus. No accusation has come close to meeting the standards of charge, proof and inditement required by criminal law, yet some innocents have yielded to the pressure because of the onerous costs of their defense.
Mueller himself was hired even when justification for a special council was not met. Mueller did not qualify as a special counsel because he was an insider with conflicts of his own. Comey recommended him. Instead of legally hiring unbiased investigators, He hired an all Democrat hit squad loaded with Hillary’s henchmen. The people they squeezed to turn on Trump were ambushed, tricked and illegally spied on even after any legal justification to do so, collapsed.
These people should be headed to the slammer for the worst anti-gov’t plot in US history. No Republican even contemplated such an action against Obama but now the new Democrat congress, under the leadership of Comrades Pelosi, Schiff, Waters & Schumer, using the odious apparatus of Democrat House Committee hearings, on the flimsy pretense of unmasking corruption and criminality in the Trump Administration will be frustrated by their failures. Trumps favorability this very day, is 52%, and they don’t know how to handle it except by blunt force.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
5:00 am, 07 Nov 2018 – By now, most people are acquainted with national voting outcomes and realize
there was no wave, Red or Blue and American politics will remain a mishmash. Democrats regained the
House by 34, meaning two more years of stalemate. Republicans kept the Senate by increasing their hold
there by three. Missed by the media is that the candidates that Trump campaigned for all won. Trump
now will turn to the use of his veto pen. Military spending will slow, for two years at least, and spending for
illegals will be vetoed to death. It will be a wasted two years for Democrats, but the Judiciary will turn to its
original roots of strict constitutionalism. Watch Trump negotiate the art of the deal with Democrats.
Sorting out voting results for local and other state candidates and issues will take a while. That the US
House of Representatives slipped back into Democrat hands, while consistent with mid-presidential term
voting patterns, is still an issue that will ensure continued political conflict and an even wider divide
between Conservative and Socialist supporters of the direction America will take. Will this signal another
step toward a Venezuela and Cuba style life or a misstep of retaining Americans position as the worlds
economic and military steadying super power? Imagine, Nancy Pelosi once again as Speaker of the
House and that demented screeching mad Max(ine) Waters chairing the House Financial Committee. The
inmates are truly taking control of one wing of the asylum.
I lay the loss of the House of Representatives at the feet of Speaker Paul Ryan, a hopeless never
Trumper extrodinaire, whose lack-luster performance for supporting conservative trending Republican
candidates betrayed his desire for retaining a big government, ’business as usual,’ anybody but Trump
attitude. But, he’ll be gone soon and a rearrangement of the chairs on the Houses deck will commence
while the screaming Democrats start their inquisition trials against Trump and Kavanaugh. Wait for it.
Sadly, Scott Walker, three time winning Governor of Wisconsin, (don’t forget the recall) was outed by a
percentage point to Tony Evers, so watch as that state once again slips under the corrupt influence of
union thuggery. Kansas, whose Republican Attorney General, Kris Kobach, took a shot at the
Governorship lost to Democrat Laura Kelly, while Florida remained all “Red.” It is now safe for the DoJ to
indite losing Democrat candidate Andrew Gillum for his fraud crimes. California, under Gavin Newsom,
will continue to function as a pitiful example of Americas potential Venezuela outcome. Blackburn won the
Republican seat vacated by a RINO and McSally kept Arizona in GOP hands.
The good news is that most of the House Republicans whose seats were challenged and won by
Democrats, were Republicans who quit or retired leaving a vacant seat to be refilled. So be it! Most of the
emotional news worthy Senate contests fell favorably to Republicans, including Arizona, Texas. Democrat
Senators in battleground states who voted against Justice Kavanaugh, all lost and that includes
Missouri’s Macaskill. Michigan's splendid Republican candidate for Senate, West Point graduate and
combat veteran John James slipped below the waves, while a dead whorehouse owner in Nevada won
his House seat.
I’ll not continue with more election results because they’ll be all the news today. What I will say is that
America clearly stands at the edge of meaningless. The next several years will be a head butting contest
between a Constitutional, law abiding citizenry and Sanctuary City, open border loving Socialists.
What was revealed is that democrats gains came despite their having absolutely no program to run on
except “Impeach Trump.” The campaigns of Democrat candidates were all propaganda and fake news,
designed to move their candidate to the center politically, and avoid what they realize is a non-starter for
most Americans, the aura of being a true communist candidate.
Conservatives have two years to reconstruct their Congressional candidates to rid congress of the
remaining RINO’s. Pelosi, if she survives her own caucus, should be a boon to regaining the house in two
For Republicans, cleansing the institutions charged with the education of America’s children in our nearly
totally corrupted colleges and universities, must become a priority. Challenging them directly won’t work but making them redundant can. Conservatives must also keep up their pursuit of the Black and Latino
voters and convince them to leave the Democrat plantation for conservatism where they can have the
opportunity to prosper. The next time I use the term “Republican” and don’t have to hold my breath doing
so, will be when conservatives predominate in the Congress, the Senate remains Republican and Trump
starts his second term.
Watch for the Left to reengage their shock-troops to hit the streets in support of any issue they think
necessary to boost their limited power and, their power is limited. The swelling sanctuary city rolls will
economically collapse those leftist governments that have abandoned the rule of law while anarchy will
sweep their streets when they run out of tax payer funds. Expect Paul Ryan to challenge Trump for
President in 2020 but first, he’ll have to nudge former Governor of Ohio, John Kasich, out of the way.
For the next few years, bipartisanship will be a nonstarter. We’re in for an interesting two years and
Conservatives have a lot of work to do so, we cannot lose faith, but get out there and get busy; continue
the attack on the idiots and idiocy of the Left.
Finally, the good news is that I can now have my e-mail back. Daily, and I suspect most of you also,
delete hundreds of pleas for donations, double donations, split donations and etc. especially from
democrats PAC’s whining about being stabbed in the back and etc.
Today is the first day of Trump’s campaign for re-election. He’s a winner so let’s find politicians who will
work with him.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way, now, go get ‘em! (07Nov18)
