    Admissions on emissions, if you will. According to the proposed legislation, H.B. 604, men in Georgia who are over the age of fifty-five would be required to notify the police whenever they ejaculate. Specifically, the bill would require them to “immediately report to the county sheriff or local law enforcement agency” whenever one of them “releases sperm from his testicles.”

    A Republican senator says that he’s had enough of President Donald Trump’s personal attacks on the late John McCain and that “the country deserves better.” Johnny Isakson of Georgia is quoted Wednesday as telling The Bulwark conservative news and opinion website that “nothing is more important than the integrity of the country and those who fought and risked their lives for all of us.” …

    Georgia's “Heartbeat Bill” has cleared a senate panel to chants of “shame” and “no safe seats” from abortion supporters. Capitol police had to escort Republican legislators to a waiting elevator through the throng of protestors. We know where this is going. The “Heartbeat Bill” is HB 481, which considers any unborn human with a heart beat as a person, with the rights of a person, to be added to the population of the state as a person, and therefore entitled to the protection of the state. Its effect would be to make most abortions illegal, with the narrow exceptions of...

    A Georgia woman has been charged with aiding ISIS by creating a "kill list" online that included the names of both State Department employees and American soldiers, ABC News reported on Monday. Kim Anh Vo, now 20 years old, joined in 2016 ISIS’s United Cyber Caliphate, which was dedicated to carrying out online attacks and cyber intrusions against Americans, according to the indictment unsealed last week by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York. Vo, who was known as "F@ng," "Zozo" or "Miss.Bones" online, is accused of working with the UCC to recruit a minor in Norway and...

    The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, voted for the resolution calling for any final report in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to be made public, but told Fox News o“It was a political stunt by the Democrats who felt that they could divide Republicans into voting no upon it because at the end of the day after I looked at it, when they dropped it … they said this is nothing but simply a first-year law student’s restatement of what the regular regulations say that Mr. (Attorney General William) Barr is going to...

    Red Alert Politics/Washington Examiner ^ | March 15th, 2019 | John Patrick
    Charlotte Riley, who teaches history at the University of Southampton, penned an interesting op-ed in the New Statesmen last month where she literally suggested standing in the way of busy males on their morning commute to help resist perceived patriarchy in society. According to Riley, such tactics are necessary because males have naturally been raised to believe they have a “right to occupy space.” “The point is that men have been socialised, for their entire lives, to take up space. Men who would never express these thoughts out loud have nevertheless been brought up to believe that their right to...

    American B-52 bombers are due to fly into Britain this week amid mounting tensions between Russia and the West. Up to eight of the Stratofortress warplanes are expected to touch down at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire on Friday. Support aircraft, including a giant C-17 Globemaster transport plane, have already arrived at the airfield. The anticipated arrival of the monster bombers comes ahead of a planned NATO exercise in Georgia, though it is unclear whether the B-52s will be involved.

    Former Democratic gubernatorial candidates Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum this week questioned the outcomes of their 2018 gubernatorial races -- suggesting that they, rather than their Republican opponents, should be in the governor seats. Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee who lost to now-Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the state’s gubernatorial race in November, hinted on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” that both he and Abrams got enough votes to win their races, and that Abrams' may have been influenced by her opponent already being in office. “Stacey juiced as many Dems as she could out of the state...

    A representative in the Georgia Statehouse is drafting a rather blunt response to legislation that would dictate when a woman could get an abortion. It's called the "Testicular Bill of Rights," and state Rep. Dar'shun Kendrick said her legislative package is all about turning the tables on her male counterparts seeking to impose laws on a woman's reproductive rights. **SNIP** Kendrick announced her "bill of rights" package on Twitter Monday. It includes, among many male-focused proposals, legislation requiring men to obtain permission from their sex partner before they get a prescription for any erectile dysfunction medication, allowing men who have...

    Stacey Abrams raised the possibility of a White House run Monday in a series of social media posts and public remarks, saying that she once thought the soonest she could campaign for president was 2028 but that a bid next year is now “definitely on the table.” Abrams had previously refused to rule out a campaign for president, but her comments Monday made clear she’s considering joining the growing Democratic field to challenge President Donald Trump.

    The Federalist ^ | 3/11/2019 | margot cleveland
    The 268-page Bruce Ohr interview transcript provides some clarity, some comfort, but also more concerns over the handling of the Russia investigation. On Friday, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, released the transcript of the House’s August 2018 interview of Department of Justice lawyer Bruce Ohr. Ohr’s name is familiar to those following the Spygate scandal: His wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for opposition research and dissemination firm Fusion GPS. The couple also met with former British spy Christopher Steele the day before the FBI launched the Crossfire Hurricane investigation into the Donald Trump presidential...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Pelosi’s grip slips as Ocasio-Cortez and friends throw a party, leave the grandparents at homeHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and the old guard Democrats at large – are in a very difficult position. The radical young voters that Democrats have been courting for years have finally elected like-minded radical young representatives – and Pelosi, D-Calif., and her leadership team have no control over them. A big reason why, as I mentioned on “Hannity” this week, is that there is a wide generation gap between Democratic House leaders and freshmen Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New...

    Washington Post gives Hillary Clinton four Pinocchios for saying “… in Wisconsin, where the best studies that have been done said somewhere between 40 and 80,000 people were turned away from the polls because of the color of their skin…” Hillary Clinton is not a stupid person.However, much of the audience that she targets is stupid, which is why she recently, knowingly said the following lie:“I was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act, and I will tell you, it makes a really big difference. And it doesn’t just make a difference...

    A top Democratic super PAC that spent $133 million in support of Hillary Clinton in 2016 said it no longer considers Ohio a target state for the 2020 presidential election, as it looks to align with an increasingly socialist Democratic Party. In a memo, Priorities USA, a moneyed super PAC that supported both President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and Clinton’s 2016 run for the White House, downgraded Ohio’s importance and labeled the state a “GOP Watch,” along with states such as Texas and Iowa. The PAC now sees Ohio as less likely to flip than other swing states, such...

    A roughly 13-foot, 700-pound alligator was recently found in an irrigation ditch, officials with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said this week. The massive reptile was found in the ditch near Lake Blackshear, Melissa Cummings, a spokeswoman for the Georgia DNR, told Fox News on Saturday. “It’s a testament to Georgia’s alligator-management program that alligators can grow to this size,” she said, separately telling First Coast News that "the only way these animals get this large is by avoiding humans." The animal’s size apparently led many who saw its picture on social media to think the image was a...

    More than 200 Georgia high school students have been called into the school nurse to get tested for tuberculosis after one student was diagnosed with the life-threatening, infectious disease. A letter was sent to parents on Friday from the principal of Discovery High School, in Lawrenceville, notifying them of the teenager's condition. The letter also revealed that students and faculty may have been 'in close and continuous contact' with the infected student, reported WSB-TV. According to the Gwinnett County Health Department, the teenager, who has not been identified, is currently at home receiving treatment.

    House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins told Jerry Nadler to “come back to reality” after announcing investigations into President Trump are being expanded. "I would say to my chairman, come back to the reality." Collins, R-Ga., said on Fox News Radio’s “Brian Kilmeade Show.” “We’ve shown you for two years where the real problem is. Let’s have some open investigations, let’s get [Rod] Rosenstein in there… let’s actually look at what the Department of Justice became and what the people can no longer trust.”

    In the wake of the devastating Detroit riots of the summer of 1967, Michigan Gov. George Romney — a liberal Republican — met the radical organizer Saul Alinsky to discuss the grievances of the urban black poor. Now Romney's son is fighting for the Republican nomination, and his main rival, Newt Gingrich, has made Barack Obama's alleged ties to Alinsky a centerpiece of his campaign.

    After roaming around and studying downtown for a week, the Urban Land Institute’s advisory services panel provided Atlanta leaders with recommendations on how to move forward with the colossal proposed “Stitch” project. On Friday, ULI, which conducts land use research for cities around the globe, suggested the time is now to partner with local elected officials and philanthropic organizations to get the ball rolling on fundraising efforts for the potentially 14-acre project that would install a massive park and new construction above the Downtown Connector. But in order to be competitive for public and private funding—panelists expect the highway-capping project...
