Fresh off his weekend and an event where he “crowd-surfed” to a young man in a wheelchair because he wanted a picture, Georgia State Representative, Vernon Jones (D) says, “Let me be clear about one thing. I’m committed to this President. I believe in this President. I took a leap of faith and I believed in that crowd and that crowd caught me.”
This was not Jones’ first event in support of President Donald Trump either. He is campaigning for the President in the current elections saying that he is a life-long Democrat, but he would not vote for Joe Biden.
Comparing the two, Jones said that Biden has destroyed black men and women through mass incarceration. He has a record of doing nothing whereas Trump has produced results like the First Step Act restoring families.
Focusing on business and the economy, Jones listed several things as accomplishments in Trump’s Presidency like correcting trade agreements to a fair agreement for America, grew the economy evidenced by businesses expanding and job growth, increased pay for those in military service, and supported historical black college funding.
Jones said, “He has done more in the past 47 months than Joe Biden has done in the past 47 years.”
He added that people are being shamed for supporting Trump by the media and others as they are being portrayed as racists and bigots. But these people are just people. People who don’t care what color you are, people who just love their country.
Many Democrats are turning in support of the President and for himself, according to Jones, because they see the craziness in their own party, the anger in their own party, and the violence in their own party.
Jones referenced the incident over the weekend of a Trump supporter who was attacked and lost two teeth in the beating he took. He said this is the game that these liberals are playing. They are trying to incite fear through violence, fear through the pandemic, and fear through the media.
In full support of Trump, he said in an interview that the President is the best hope in support of our first and second amendment rights. He later added that voting for Biden isn’t even a vote for Biden as president. “He wouldn’t be the president, it would be Kamala Harris,” he said.
He added that she would be even scarier.
Going down the ballot from Trump, Jones also showed his support for Doug Collins and the work he has already done for Georgia as a Representative for the 9th Congressional District. While he didn’t specifically comment on Loeffler, he did say that Warnock was the wrong choice saying, “… it’s a vote for our civil liberties to be lost. It’s a vote for illegal immigration. It’s a vote for taking away the tax cut. He is dangerous.”
However, he didn’t stay long with this race and returned again to the Presidential Election and its importance as he said he was going to continue supporting and campaigning for Trump through his birthday even, October 31. He said that despite the polls, he wants Georgia to be all for the president in his re-election. Especially since the opposition has the major media supporting and propping up Biden’s campaign.
Jones pointed to the media and incidents with Biden meeting with Russian officials. He asks why none of them are asking Biden about it and why he or anyone in his campaign wouldn’t denounce the allegations or answer the questions.
With more events coming and debates on the way, Jones said he is looking to continue campaigning hard as he stands behind his words and endorsements.
It was a common theme during his statements. Constantly focused on the election, on Trump, and on the future of America. Many other stories are focused on his crowd surfing and the meaning or consequences of that day.
Jones stated in the video, “Show me the next crowd. I’ll do the same thing.”

Americans have been conned by the outrageous lies of Democrats. Within two weeks America will know if it will remain the beacon of hope for all people or will we slide into the abyss of third world violence, totalitarism and slavery. True Americans are not going to allow Democrats with their mail in ballot schemes to ruin our country. Americans will not accept demented Joe Biden who would soon die, leaving Marxist Kamala Harris as President. No one wanted her!
Americas accepted values of civility were inexorably altered in Minneapolis, Mn, when Floyd George, a black two-bit thief, robber, fraudster and drug user, died at police hands while being arrested for passing a counterfeit twenty. Democrats saw an opportunity and went crazy elevating this thug to Saintly status, eulogizing his worthless life in funerals in three different cities. The “pity show” for poor Floyd George went on for days and gullible Americans, thinking they could assuage their whiteness, sent in thousands of dollars to a cadre of Marxist revolutionaries, mostly white morons, whose aim is to overthrow the United States of America and replace it with fascism.
What happens then? Fascism of course! We’ve already experienced multiple robberies and street violence to show respect and deep grief for the unlamented George. Violence swept the US and then went world wide into a planed and coordinated attack against western values. Nobody was left untouched. Black as well as white businesses were looted and burned, counter protests were quickly shut down with violence by Antifa’s, Police ordered to stand down and streets cordoned off from fire and medical aid and, the murders of eighty-nine policemen.
The most useless presidential candidate ever to take the field, Joe Biden, fell to his knees and wept. Whose got a violin? I’ll turn the weepy pages. So did the wicked old lady of the House, and her silly looking cohorts of Progressive sympathizers, wearing bits of African cloth around their necks, presumably to show solidarity with poor George Floyd. All lies!
Americans are beyond reasoning with these people. They lie! It’s in their DNA and they cannot stop themselves. They are products of the teachings of now long dead Socialists like John Dewey, Betty Friedan. William James, Alfred Kinsey, Aldous Huxley Benjamin Bloom, B.F. Skinner, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes, Saul Alinsky, Sigmund Freud, Margaret Sanger, Roger Baldwin and many others whose wicked philosophies are borne out on our streets today.
Joe Biden is a cannon ball on a pitching deck for Democrats. Even with a Teleprompter and aides standing at his elbow, he can’t get it right. He refuses to answer questions about his son, Hunter Biden’s wealthy involvement with both the Ukraine and China; denies having even consulted with Hunter on any of these issues and even in the face of irrefutable evidence, denies any wrong doing.
Democrats are totally corrupt! Everything to them is politics for power and they’ll sign on with the devil to get it. Speaking of which, lurking in the wings is China’s Emperor Ji jingping, aided and abetted by Hunter Biden who sold his fathers influence as VP to Americas enemies for millions.
This is the epitome of the Deep State Swamp that president Trump has promised to drain. They are fighting back with lies, lies and more lies and yet, we see no movement in the Halls of Justice to bring these creatures to book! We’re two weeks away from a reckoning. If they win, Joe and Hunter may be the richest men in America, lackeys to Emperor Ji Jingping.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get angry! (18Oct20)

The title quote is attributed to the revered Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759-1796)! The truth of his statement has been borne out multiple time since his day, encompassing the defeat of the Axis in WWII and, no more obviously than the 2016 presidential election when all the poll pundents, the expert media prognosticators and Democrat hangers-on predicted with absolute certainty that America would be blessed with a Hillary Clinton presidency. “Oh, Joy, Rapture!” The smartest woman in the world to become Americas first woman president & etc, Give us a break!
The uncertainty then was wondering why Democrats would support the worlds smartest woman Hillary Clinton, as a candidate while under investigation by the FBI for multiple felonies, and believing the FBI, DoJ, CIA & IRS were fair and honest, believed in the Constitution and would send the miscreant to jail. Then, they let the rat out of the trap and with the certainty of fanatic devotees to Beelzebub, that she would never see the inside of a prison except possibly to visit Comey, Brennan, McCabe and Strzok, they sought to resurrect their version of the Communist Manifesto yet again in the sure and certain hope their corrupt deep state activities would fade away and they could resume their coup against America’s President. It hasn’t happened yet!
Four years later we’re faced with that exact same uncertainty, oh, not from Trump supporters, flyover country deplorable’s, prospering Americans of African descent or working Latinos, but from Democrats who have gone into melt down wondering how they could have possibly put up the weakest nincompoop in the Democrat Party as their candidate against a virtual eating machine of incompetent performers, Donald Trump who is prepared to devour their whole scheme and candidate too! What’s now certain is to win they’re going to have to cheat and they are good at it!
It’s not difficult to guess what the Democrats have in mind to steal the presidency from the most successful political leader since General George Washington, and turn America into a slobbering country of social misfits whose survival depends on what the State gives ’em! It’s already started with the mail in ballots. How does that work and still ensure honesty? I don’t know. Ask a Democrat. I do know this. While on our recent vacation trip to Wyoming, we met a vacationer from Texas who told us he had already received, unsolicited, four mail in ballots from Ohio and two from Illinois, states he has never visited let alone lived in! He thought he would fill ’em all in for Trump and send ’em back like a good voter would.
Conservatives do have a big problem. We’re still attached to the Republican party and while the Democrat party doesn’t really know what it is or wants with contending factions pushing any moderates to the far left, the Republicans still have RiNO’s and anti-Trumpers sitting on their hands hoping Trump will fail and they are not seen as helping the Marxists in that failure. Sen. Susan Collins, (R-Ma) is as flakey as they come and desperately needs to be replaced, but now Conservatives are almost forced into helping her win another term as a RiNO moderate just to keep the GOP’s senate count above 50%. And if she does win there is still no certainty that she even recognizes the dangers facing our Constitutional Republic. Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski is another goofball RiNO that has to go, sooner rather than later, but right now, alas, she’s a Senate Republican vote if she knows how to use it. If clueless Joe is the best they got, and he wins, we’re all in trouble. If you want a hint on Joe’s oncoming dementia, watch this recent video for a while: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnafho4KMiQ&feature=youtu.be. Then, remember who’s behind him, the first drop-out of the Democrat primary, super marxist Kamala Harris. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em? (11Oct20)
By stealth and design, America, over the past five decades has allowed itself to be enveloped in the soothing fog of socialism where its corrosive philosophy has been allowed to incubate in our public schools until ultimately, it has let loose the legions of corrosive thinking cretins, BLM’s, now attacking and burning our towns and cities, indeed our Americanism disguised as peaceful protesters but, anarchists all. The scary thing is that these people are for most part, Americans.
I am slightly confused. I always thought that BLM identified the Bureau of Land Management, a government quasi law enforcement entity to protect Americas wide open spaces and Indian reservations. I was alarmed when BLM got directly involved against private enterprise when they assumed a Nevada rancher, the Bundy family, were in violation of some land use rules empowering them, the BLM, to seize Bundy’s cattle without due process. This occurred under a Democrat government when then House Speaker Harry Reid, wanted the land Bundy used for cattle grazing to sell to a renewable energy company to install solar collectors. That constituted an Executive Action requiring a legal punishment, (theft of Bundy’s cattle), an unconstitutional act, unless they got away with it. They didn’t, and that part of the story died. Also quickly ignored was the singular fact that armed American citizens confronted the BLM usurpers and prevailed.
In any event, we are now confronted with a different BLM, hoards of black clad young, mostly white Americans, organized or not, volunteering for political reasons or for pay, to support the BLM group of self styled and admitted Marxists who are determined to bring America down.
As this lot runs around city streets and cafes attempting to humiliate dining patrons, it is more an expression of Maoism than Marxism. In any event, their mission is the same, destroy America. A shocking video interview of a young white male with a plastic face shield truthfully answering the interviewer’s questions, admitted that capitalism had to be overthrown and replaced by socialism. By his attitude he thought it was an event sure to happen. Where did he get such anti-American ideas? From the revisionists of American history, in the Common Core syllabus indoctrinating its neophytes about how rotten America has been to people of color, to the poor and the undocumented immigrants swarming here for a better life, free of charge of course!
America’s long and successful exercise in representative government, where decorum between contending ideas, (except for the Civil War period), even with those that clearly flouted the US Constitution, were argued out in the public domaine with a basically honest media reporting the results, not trying to make them. All that has been washed away with the corrupting marriage between commerce and government, the source of the vast pot of easy cash endlessly flowing to buy the votes of politicians. That’s one step away from Fascism, Mussolini’s idea that one can keep his business so long as his business produces what government tells him to produce.
Nobody could seriously believe that Joe Biden is up 16 points over Donald Trump except CNN who said so. That’s a fear inducing tactic! What is happening is a post Trump Leftist scheme to give us two choices in what government, we will have, Fascism or Communism, aka: Socialism. To Democrats, it really makes no difference because both concepts are Far Left and will only survives under the heel of Totalitarian, protected by a police state.
Mostly, Americans now live comfortably adjusting to deflation and inflation, lower interests rates and affordable fuel and food prices. That comfort could soon end and Conservative Americans must be prepared for two choices, give in or water the roots of the Liberty Tree.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, let’s get awesome! (06Oct20)

To start off with, I couldn’t tell if I was watching a found copy of a lost Marx Brothers film or a cartoon rerun of Elmer Fudd chasing that wascally wabbit! With that, I’ll admit I’m totally for Donald Trump. I’ve witnessed the miracle of his take no prisoners leadership of Americas prosperity and economic growth; how he handles foreign policy to Americas favor, his restoration of our military and his savvy business approach to management of the dysfunctional corrupt government he inherited and the efforts of elements of that corrupt government to pull him down. That includes Joe Biden. The first debate was really on trivial matters already in the public domain. It was in fact, a waste of time.
Having said that, a couple of points also need to be made. First, I wondered why Trump even bothered to debate Joe Biden because Joe’s history of gaffs, misstatements, false innuendos political failures, self-enrichment and outright lies, as he so cunningly demonstrated in last nights debate, should have rendered any such debate mute and not worth sparing over. We all already know what the issues are and the position of both candidates on them. The best advice ever given to me was never to argue with an idiot because idiot will bring you down to his level and beat you to death with his experience. Didn’t happen last night though.
The Leftist media will give Joe high marks for standing up to and “trashing” Donald Trump, and claim that Trump was still lying. Well, that might have worked once but most folks today have caught on to the MSM and don’t believe ’em anymore. Besides, every possible issue that could be debated was spit out onto that stage last night.
The Left hates Donald Trump because he’s ruined their gig! Joe hotly claimed he was “the Democrat Party,” not Bernie Sanders or AOC, and even raised his voice to emphasize the point, He denied that he supported AOC and her Green New Deal, when he’s on record for doing exactly that. Leave it to good ol’ Joe to bring mediocrity to a new low level of mendacity.
What did surprise me was that Joe even consented to debate but on issues only important to the Left! Nobody cares about global warming or the US rejoining the Paris Climate Accords because everybody now knows that the Paris Accords were nothing more that a New World Order scam to fleece Western countries, especially the US, out of trillions of dollars to support, you guessed it, the new world order.
Speaking of global warming, Trump was correct when he said the US is the cleanest country in the world for low carbon emissions, pointing out China, India and other countries were major contributors of green house gas emissions. I was disappointed that Trump did not include the four hundred, more or less, active volcanos around the world spewing their toxic poisons into the atmosphere every minute, and dismissing outright the whole concept of human accountability as unscientific nonsense.
Of course the timing of Trumps latest Supreme Court pick took some fire but that didn’t last long because, as Trump said, he was President and, to quote a recent past President, Barak Obama: “Elections count. I won, you lost.” Biden’s response was that the American People should have a voice in a SCOTUS nomination. Well, they did, in 2016! End of story.
I was especially amused when Joe tried to capture Trumps economic miracle as his own by claiming the Obama-Biden administration left a thriving economy for Donald Trump when we all know the Obama-Biden economy was moribund with slow to nearly non-existent growth, high black and Latino unemployment and lost jobs going abroad.
Other issues of importance to the Left were Trumps Tax returns. He’s under audit all the time and pay’s taxes in the millions. For me, I’m not worried about a billionaire becoming President, I worry about how a mere politician enters Congress and becomes a millionaire. Nobody asked Joe if the paid his taxes on his Ukraine investment or on Hunter Biden’s billions from China. Joe got right defensive over Trump bringing up the matter of his corrupt kid, but, it had to be asked.
Trump also started the revitalization of the military including cancelling out Obama’s scheme to re-educate white Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airman about the unhealthy effect of their racism because of their white privilege. OMG!
In short, Joe Biden rarely answered a direct question but framed his answers in the tedious talking points we hear daily. Remarkably Joe would not utter the words Law and Order. If he did, AOC would cast a spell on him causing his tongue to shrivel up and fall out.
Well, it was a good show I suppose. The suave Mr. Chris Wallace of Fox News, managed to maintain some control but not decorum. Trump isn’t a decorum man. Hit him and he hits back! Lie about him and he’ll correct the offender then and there. It was a Marx Brothers or the Three Stooges show, but it was entertaining. Take your pick!

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.
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.
HIAWASSEE, Ga. – Days after announcing a decision to no longer seek re-election, Towns County Sheriff Chris Clinton shared his plans beyond law enforcement on a radio broadcast, Monday, Nov. 25.
Sheriff Clinton announced intent to seek a fourth term as the county’s chief officer on Sept. 19, before the Towns County Republican Party, later retracting the bid via a social media post issued Friday, Nov. 22.
Clinton stated on live radio that it’s “time to move ahead and move forward,” adding that he has never been “much of a politician,” and looks forward to spending time with family post-retirement. Clinton revealed that he plans to share stories – along with a possible screenplay – based on the life of his late grandfather, and intends to release a second album of original songs.
Clinton listed his proudest achievements as acquired state accreditation by the Towns County Sheriff’s Office, the success of the annual Empty Stocking Fund, community support for Georgia Sheriffs’ Youth Homes, and the CLEA program as highlights of his 12-year career. The sheriff included that he is proud to have restored the “public trust lost in 2007” which led to Clinton taking office through a necessary special election, adding that crime statistics in Towns County have declined in the years that followed.
When asked regrets, Clinton said that the time spent away from his family rated high, and on a professional level, that better pay for officers, and an increase in the number of deputies is needed in the county.
Clinton signed off by stating that he intends to make good use of his final year in office. “We don’t care about politics anymore so be careful,” Clinton warned with a laugh, adding on a later broadcast that he intends to weigh-in on the upcoming election as the season advances. “I know what’s under the hood with these folks…,” Clinton said, predicting additional candidates may enter the race. “Politics are a strange beast.”

HIAWASSEE, Ga. – Hiawassee City Council rejected the proposal of a digital billboard that would have been placed on West Main Street, near the Tater Ridge Plaza. Terry Poteete, the owner of the current billboards at the location in question, revisited the council at the Monday, April 29 work session. Poteete announced that he was granted permission via an application to erect the digital advertising device, following a previous report on the issue by FYN. The billboard owner took the community’s wishes into consideration, however, and returned to City Hall to appear before the council. Council members Amy Barrett, Nancy Noblet, and Anne Mitchell offered input, explaining that they did not believe that a digital billboard was the correct option for the small town of Hiawassee. Councilwoman Barrett expressed appreciation at Poteete’s offer to take the issue “off-the-table” given the council and community’s negative reponse. Poteete appealed that digital signage is the “future of advertising” to which Councilwoman Anne Mitchell cheerfully replied, “Maybe we’re just not there yet.” Council members Kris Berrong and Patsy Owens were present at the meeting.
Of other interest, Mayor Liz Ordiales announced that the residential water rate resolution is due before the council at the May 7 regular session. The proposal was discussed during a prior session, following a study by the University of North Carolina. The paced resolution would more than double water rates for Hiawassee consumers by 2023. Mayor Ordiales reminded that a rate increase has not occurred in the past six years, and that water revenue is running at a deficit. Councilwoman Anne Mitchell was the sole official to comment on the matter, noting that the icreased rates may “begin to make a dent” in the debt. Business customers will not be affected by the rate hike, nor will North Carolina citizens who receive water from the City of Hiawassee. Sewer rates will remain stable, unaffected by the increase. A minimum base charge will be set at 1,200 gallons should the resolution pass favorably through the majority of the council next week.

Absolute Dysfunction and Eggs!
Let’s see if we can figure this one out. Three hundred people, including at least three Americans, were murdered and five hundred injured, in separate Islamic attacks against two Christian churches and three hotels in Sri Lanka (Ceylon) on Easter Sunday. If you didn’t know that, I recommend you should urgently reevaluate your news gathering habits. The phony Mueller business is over at last. Let it go!
The mainstream media, the propaganda arm of the Progressive Left, don’t want to share these ugly stories of Muslims murdering Christians with you lest you become Islamaphobic in the process. No, not al all! Islam is the religion of peace, isn’t it?
The MSM is motivated to flood the airways with Progressive drivel. For example, while Sri Lanka burns, Elizabeth, the phony Indian, Warren, in her feckless attempt to charge up her flagging presidential campaign, doesn’t even mention the deadly Islamic Easter attack in Sri Lanka, but wants to turn Americans into pot heads. She says “Pot” can be an economic boon to the poor, destitute denizens of neighborhoods that prosperity forgot; that vast throng of poor, uneducated, inept, unqualified unemployable creatures who have not shared in the spoils of Capitalism. Let’s give them money.
Pocahontas is not alone. The wannabe Mexican fool Señor “Beto” O’Rourke, thinks he was gifted with the looks, charm and erudition of JFK, while the former mayor of South Bend, Ind, Greg what’s his name, hyped by a media love fest, has gone off the rails himself defending Socialism as a panacea for America’s problems. AOC demonstrates, every time she opens her mouth, why the cost of her education was money misspent. These people are all the same, identical, leaderless and ignorant, like a carton of eggs.
I put a carton of a dozen fresh eggs in my fridge yesterday, added three eggs on top from the previous carton and, Lo!, fifteen white eggs that look exactly the same, like the Democrat contenders for President. They all sound the same, say the same things, each one out shouting the others to be heard about the same things…nothing! Can I refer to the Democrats as “eggs” now? Would it be understood? Will anyone understand “eggs” as a metaphor for sameness?
Not even a dozen intelligent eggs can possibly do what Donald Trump has done to Make America Great Again, but they all want the same things for Americans, open borders to allow immigration, including invading Muslims, free education, free healthcare, free housing, and monthly salaries whether they have a job or not. The Democrats promise of a socialist utopia remains as big a scam as Mueller’s investigation was. America is not a Socialist country!
This Democrat hysteria over demands for results already provided, on a two year investigation already concluded, is a direct reflection of the dysfunction that the leaderless and inept Democrat party has become. If they were real eggs, they should be scrambled by now. As a political observer, I’m not sure I any longer know how best to describe the Democrat party, as fragile eggs or as further evidence the inmates are running the institution.
The Democrats, now in tatters, are passing through the five stages of Trump: grief, anger, bargaining, depression and soon, we hope, acceptance. This is seen in the House of Representatives, in the context that the House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, is no longer captain of her ship, but is trying to tut-tut over a primary class of ignorant children, em, I mean eggs!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

Last week, Georgia Republican Governor, Brian Kemp, announced his appointment of a metro-Atlanta police chief, John King, to be the replacement for the now-suspended elected Insurance Commissioner, Jim Beck. In Georgia, Insurance Commissioner is a statewide, constitutional office.
Jerry Gonzalez, Executive Director of the corporate-funded, anti-enforcement lobbyist group, GALEO, was quick to send out a media release praising the “historic” appointment and boasting that King had assisted the activist group as keynote speaker at a GALEO breakfast fundraiser several years ago.
“Congrats to Chief King, close friend of @GALEOorg !” was the much-repeated celebratory post on the GALEO Facebook page.
Kemp’s Insurance Commissioner appointee has no background or experience in the insurance industry.
Kemp’s appointment of the GALEO-connected police chief to Insurance Commissioner comes as a shock to many Republican voters in the state. Georgia’s conservative U.S. Senator David Perdue stopped the Obama nomination of a one-time GALEO board member, Dax Lopez, to a federal bench seat in 2016 because of his concern with the GALEO relationship.
Perhaps unknown to most Republican voters, in addition to marching in the streets of Atlanta against enforcement of existing federal laws on immigration, GALEO and its director are well-known in the state Capitol for lobbying against state legislation aimed at reporting criminal aliens to federal authorities and establish an official database of illegal aliens serving time in the state’s prison system.
GALEO lobbies against voter ID, official English and local jails honoring ICE detainers. Executive Director Gonzalez is known to verbally attack female legislators when he does not approve of speeches or positions on illegal immigration. In 2011, Gonzalez posted this angry explanation of being asked to leave the Georgia Capitol when he lashed out at state Senator Renee Unterman for a speech she made on the floor of the senate.
In 2011, GALEO’s Gonzalez was escorted out of a Rome, Georgia luncheon that featured a panel discussion on immigration when he began yelling at diminutive state Rep Katie Dempsey as reported by the Rome News Tribune.
Gonzalez is a former lobbyist for the radical MALDEF corporation. GALEO founder, former state Senator Sam Zamarippa was a MALDEF board member. MALDEF founder Mario Obledo is best remembered for his promise that “California is going to become a Hispanic state and if anyone doesn’t like it they should leave. They ought to go back to Europe” on the Tom Likus radio show in 1998.
According to the left-leaning Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, Georgia is home to more illegal aliens than green card holders.
Kemp ran on a platform that included his now famous “I got a big truck, just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take ’em home myself,”
Kemp and a GALEO fundraiser – Advice from a liberal AJC political blogger
Republicans are learning that before he was elected governor, then Secretary of State Brian Kemp also gave GALEO a fundraising boost when he attended the annual GALEO Power Breakfast fundraiser in 2015.
On GALEO, the liberal AJC political blogger informed readers today that the Republicans will need to court the illegal alien lobby group as a necessary first step to “court Hispanic votes in the future” which ignores thirty years of election results since the Republican immigration amnesty of 1986.
All this creates a simple question: Does appointee John King agree with the GALEO agenda? He is due to be sworn in in the next few weeks, somebody should ask.

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!
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.
Trumps Fearful Hold on Democrats
Some rabid Trump haters may be realizing the fake Russian collusion business is going nowhere. Not all of course, but painful as it might be, some know it’s time to pivot. Their guide still lies with Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicles recommendation to overwhelm the system(s) to the breaking point such as we are seeing at our southern border. So look for Illegal emigration to rise as the next hot topic along side health care, for the poor & indigent including the disease ridden illegals now infecting America with illness thought to be long gone.
Congress is still burdened with its dimwitted politicos like Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff, auntie Maxine, et. al., in the Democrat leadership. They are still blowing smoke about the failure of the Special Counsels to indite Donald Trump. Could the Mueller report still be fertile ground to be plowed for new accusations? Nope, ain’t gonna happen! They’ve got to look elsewhere and believe me, they will. Unlike Republicans, they never give up or roll over to the inevitable truth.
The Mueller Report did us a good turn. It revealed, regardless of the MSM’s ignoring it almost totally, that there was indeed criminal collusion, a conspiracy to commit treason. By lying to Congress, lying to Federal investigators and obstruction of justice rising to the level of Treason, a hanging offense, the conspirators created false evidence and narratives of the supposed criminality by Donald Trump. They provided false testimony to obtain warrants (FISA), to stop the Trump threat and protect the real criminality of their kindred spirits, Obama, the Clintons and the elite bureaucrats of the Federal Intelligence and law enforcement community.
When search warrants are requested by investigators, including FISA Warrants, our 4th amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizures “requires” that truthful probable cause, supported by evidence and oath or affirmation, must exist. That oath, given to a judge or magistrate, if knowingly false, constitutes a crime. But Judges can’t always know that and, In Trump’s case FBI’s oaths were believed because they were the FBI, armed with the highest of reputations. For Trump, the FBI investigation fell under the ruse of a counter-Intelligence inquiry. That does not negate the crimes of false swearing they conspired to commit in obtaining their warrants. There can be no possible other course of action here. If Mueller was honest and truthful, then the FBI and their coconspirators in the DoJ, lied to him as well.
What Mueller’s report has done was to destroy Americans faith in our system of federal justice, another point in Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to take down existing governments. It revealed that a wicked self-serving elite bureaucracy, a “Deep State,” was no longer just a rumor of the tinfoil hat crowd, but is in fact a very real danger to our American representative form of government. Mueller revealed clearly to what depths the Deep State elites will go to protect their elite inner kingdom. They are dedicated to protecting their own because if they don’t they could all hang. The Progressives will (almost) endure any pain, seek any measure of possible influence ore commit any crime, including murder, to stay in power. Watch for the rats to leave the sinking Progressive ship. Brennan has already started with hi “I didn’t know,” nonsense.
How far has the rot of judicial favoritism spread? How about to Obama’s Chicago where an unknown actor in a silly TV soap opera, Jussie Smollett, desperate for notoriety and following right on the heels of the Mueller report serve as an example? Our system of justice can no longer survive leftist favoritism in addressing crimes simply because “they meant well” or didn’t like the candidate(s). So, here’s the real headline: Attention Democrats, the Mueller report is complete and the results are in. “Donald Trump’s your daddy!”
Remember, freedoms the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, let’s go get ‘em!
