  • REPORT: Democrat Darling in Georgia House Special Election Runs Company That Funds Human Smuggling

    Gateway Pundit ^ | April 24, 2017 | Cristina Laila
    Democrat Congressional Candidate and Georgia darling, Jon Ossoff paid human smugglers operating across Europe approximately $2,000. Everyday we learn more and more about this young Democrat who was foisted onto Georgians by outside money. We also just reported that Ossoff didn’t vote in the 2012 election. He claims he couldn’t vote because he was abroad. Yeah ok, makes sense! Someone who was involved in human smuggling shouldn’t be able to run for office, but since he’s a Democrat, this will probably get swept under the rug.

    Another day passes as radical Islam continues its aggressive expansion across the globe. Now OUR country is in serious trouble.A video has appeared that shows Muslim enclaves ruled by Sharia law in nine different states: Alaska, California, New York, Texas, Michigan, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. Americans are forbidden to enter these communities. (via Twitter)Dear Obama: please admit you have failed the American people. It is because of your “open border” policies that we now are losing valuable real estate in our own country. This is unacceptable.After eight years of Obama, we have literally lost American soil to terrorists....

  • Democrats' Georgia blunder: 'Resist Trump' is not a winning strategy

    Fox News Opinion ^ | April 19, 2017 | Douglas E. Schoen
    In the special election for Georgia’s Sixth District Congressional seat, Democrat Jon Ossoff has fallen short of the 50 percent threshold needed to win the seat out-right, triggering a runoff in June. Ossoff’s candidacy and failure to secure the seat in the first round of voting, despite holding an $8.3 million war-chest, is the quintessential example of why the Democrats’ strategy of resisting Trump at every step is imprudent and that the more effective way to win in a solidly Republican district is with a positive agenda of change. Today, the Democratic party is deeply fractured. While some pragmatic leaders...

    Despite spending millions of dollars and recruiting a bevy of celebrities to help his cause, Democratic hopeful Jon Ossoff failed to snatch Georgia’s 6th District away from the GOP outright in a special election Tuesday, and will face Republican Karen Handel in a runoff election most observers expect him to lose. Needless to say, several of Ossoff’s liberal celebrity backers did not take his failure to win outright well. “I want to puke,” tweeted Ossoff’s number-one celebrity cheerleader, actress Alyssa Milano. Later, she insisted to President Trump himself that Republicans should not count Ossoff's failure to win outright as a...

    When Kennesaw State University held an event last week on privilege and interracial relations, it asked “those who identify as white” to go to one room and “those who identify as people of color” to go to another. “The goal of the workshop, which was led by an outside expert, was to foster learning and create an environment of understanding and support for one another,” said Kennesaw State University spokeswoman Tammy DeMel. “Attendees were asked to work together and then were invited to join the group with which they identify.”

    President Trump on Wednesday morning blasted Democrats for "failing" to win Georgia's House special election the night before, framing the upcoming runoff election as a battle between the state and outside interests. "Dems failed in Kansas and are now failing in Georgia," the president tweeted Wednesday. "Great job Karen Handel! It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th." . . . The race drew intense outside attention, with a number of celebrities donating to Ossoff's campaign.

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 4/19/2017 | Staff
    Politics: The special election held in Georgia on Tuesday was supposed to a blockbuster event showcasing the anti-Trump wave sweeping the nation. Instead, it was an overhyped dud. So sure that Georgians shared their loathing of Donald Trump, Democrats from around the country poured more than $8 million — almost none of which came from people in Georgia's 6th District — into the campaign of 30-year-old political novice Jon Ossoff. Celebrities endorsed him. The media showered him with free publicity. And he was running against 11 Republican candidates. But even with all that support, Ossoff wasn't able to win a...

    Heck? Darned? Tom Perez doesn’t work blue on cable TV, especially in the early hours, apparently. “I’d rather be Jon Ossoff right now than Karen Handel,” the DNC chair told Morning Joe earlier today after $8.3 million and a fractured Republican field failed to keep their special-election candidate from a runoff in June. “He’s already at 49% of the vote, and there’s a heck of a lot of energy out there,” Perez bragged after Joe Scarborough questioned the strategy of Democrats in investing heavily in TV spots. Perez pledged full Democratic Party support, saying that they had a “darned good...

    RUSH: I want to congratulate Jon Ossoff for his victory in the Georgia special election last night. He called it a victory for the ages. Just such a resounding victory last night for the Democrats and Jon Ossoff, and as a result of this victory, he has to run again. If he did it once, he can do it again. They’ve got a runoff coming up on June the 20th where Ossoff will no doubt humiliate Trump once again. Ossoff will no doubt embarrass and humiliate the Republican Party and the seat of Newt Gingrich and Tom Price once again....
  • US Army base on lockdown, sixty four soldiers busted in cocaine drug ring

    Authorities arrested several soldiers at Fort Stewart on Tuesday. The soldiers are believed to have used, had or involved in the sale of cocaine. Officials at the base were reluctant to speak with Popular Military, only offering a small statement in a press release. “We dedicate resources and work closely with our local law enforcement partners to identify and suppress illegal drug use in our ranks,” Maj. Gen. James Rainey, senior commander of Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield, said in a news release. An anonymous source at the base told Popular Military that sixty four soldiers from the 3-15 Infantry Battalion...

    In the days after Donald Trump was inaugurated in January, liberals in America were depressed, despondent, and asking themselves what to do next. David Nir, the political director of the liberal blog Daily Kos, had an answer and that answer was Jon Ossoff. Nir and the Daily Kos team had been crunching the numbers from Trump’s election since the day after it happened. Which districts did Trump underperform in? Where were the opportunities for Democrats? They quickly noticed that in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, which Mitt Romney won by 23 points in 2012, Trump had won by just a point...

    New York Magazine ^ | April 19, 2017 | Frank Rich
    This little race was fun while it lasted, and may have been the most successful jobs program (albeit for journalists) of the Trump presidency. But even if Ossoff had actually won it’s hard to see how this contest was a bellwether for 2018 or much else. Georgia’s sixth district, we keep being reminded, is “ruby red” and hasn’t sent a Democrat to the House since the state’s native son Jimmy Carter was president. But it is also a wealthy suburban Atlanta district in which Trump beat Clinton by barely a single percentage point (as opposed to Mitt Romney crushing Obama...

    Please stop being a puppet, continuing democrats' decades of deceiving and exploiting blacks to keep them voting democrat Award winning black actor and civil rights activist Samuel L. Jackson cut a radio ad for the congressional special election in Georgia. Jackson urged Georgia voters to vote democrat to stop racist and sexist Trump. Folks, as an American who happens to be black, I respectfully report that Mr Jackson has a history of delusional thinking in regards to race relations in America. Over the years, Jackson has repeatedly excoriated Americans. Recently, Jackson accused America of being “full of white supremacists” who...

    I don’t want to sound like the Baghdad Bob of the 2018 election cycle, but the special election in Georgia’s 6th congressional district was yet another reminder that despite the mainstream media’s relentless narrative attempting to turn the early days of the Trump administration into a story of GOP rout, reality has stubbornly refused to cooperate with them. Don’t get me wrong—the GOP is absolutely facing headwinds in 2018. And there’s a lot of political ground left to cover in November. I’d certainly rather be in a position of winning districts by increasing margins rather than decreasing ones. Could the...

    COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Channel 2 Action News has learned that critical voting machines were stolen just days before polls will open for a special election. State officials are investigating after equipment was taken from a Cobb County precinct manager’s vehicle. According to Secretary of State Brian Kemp, the equipment was stolen on Saturday evening while the vehicle was parked at the Kroger on Canton Road. Kemp’s office says Cobb County Elections waited two days to tell his office about the theft of the machines.

    This evening, all eyes were on the special election in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District as Democrats were hoping to flip the seat that has been held by Republicans for decades. The seat recently opened up after Republican Tom Price left to take over as Secretary of Health and Human Services. Going into the night, Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff was way up in the polls as a number of GOP hopefuls threw their hats into the ring. However, despite the fact that he was polling in the mid-40s, roughly 30 points ahead of his nearest opponent, Ossoff and Democrats knew he...

    The Week ^ | April 18, 2017 | The Atlanta Journal Constitution
    With 54 percent of precincts in Georgia's 6th congressional district reporting, Democrat Jon Ossoff has 50 percent of the vote, followed by Republican Karen Handel with 18 percent and Republican Judson Hill with 10 percent. This special election is being held to fill the seat left vacant earlier this year by Republican Tom Price, who became the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. The district covers areas of metro Atlanta, a conservative stronghold that was barely won by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. There are 18 candidates in the race, and if one does not...

    The most competitive special Congressional election yet has arrived, and we will be providing returns live tonight right here. In addition to our district-wide totals, we will be analyzing county and precinct level returns. For the Democrats, the hope is that Jon Ossoff can pull out an outright win tonight- if he gets over 50% of the vote in this crowded field, he’s in as the district’s new Representative in Congress. If he falls short, then he will face off against one of four likely Republican opponents in a runoff on June 20th: Karen Handel, Bob Gray, Judson Hill, or...
