    ATLANTA — Brian Kemp, the 59-year-old son of an Athens farmer who was once trampled by a 750-pound bovine in a cattle chute, has developed a way of casting calm in the fiercest of storms.Six months after soundly defeating Democrat Stacey Abrams in their second matchup in four years, he remains undaunted by everything that has happened to him in the past few years, from Abrams refusing to admit she lost that race four years ago to the strident national media criticisms of how he handled COVID-19, MLB's meltdown over his state’s new voting laws, the money spent to undo...

    The Bush clan is always in the background, like the stench of a rotting whale carcass just over the horizon. With Georgia on their mind for 2024, Governor Brian Kemp hosts a stop Trump confab at their infamous and preferred Sea Island retreat. Meanwhile, thanks to the intrepid boots-on-ground reporting of Laura Loomer, we discover that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is meeting with Zuckerberg’s far-left Center for Election Innovation & Research (CEIR), in Washington DC. Why would state election officials be meeting with far-left election manipulation groups. Well, put those two datapoints together, and once again the strings...

    Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed a bill on Friday to establish a commission with the power to remove local prosecutors who “refuse to uphold the law.” Kemp’s office said in a release that he established the Prosecuting Attorneys Qualifications Commission (PACQ) with his signature to serve as “a valuable oversight mechanism” for district attorneys and solicitors-general throughout the state. The office said the commission will ensure these officials fulfill their constitutional and statutory responsibilities.

    Georgia Governor Brian Kemp certified the fraudulent and uncertifiable 2020 Election in Georgia. Then after doing that he somehow pulled off a 2022 primary win. Now he wants to create a new GOP Party that will eliminate permanently anyone threatening the Good Old Boys in the party. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp certified the 2020 Election in the state that was uncertifiable. Hundreds of thousands of ballots showed up after election day in 2020, giving Joe Biden the lead three days after the election by 12,000 votes. Kemp certified these results, no questions asked. At that moment Americans learned that Georgia,...
  • GOP donors open to other Trump challengers as DeSantis tries to find footing

    interviews with nearly two dozen GOP donors, strategists and voters suggest the desire for a backup option has intensified amid questions about how the Florida governor would fare [cut] With an eye on DeSantis’s vulnerabilities, many donors have kept the door open to other potential White House contenders. One lesson that sticks with many benefactors who helped Jeb Bush raise more than $100 million by July of 2015 only to see the former Florida governor falter is that Trump’s ability to torpedo his rivals — as he is now trying to do with DeSantis — necessitates a backup plan. “My...

    Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) will not run for president in 2024 and is waiting to see how the Republican primary field shakes out before throwing his support behind a candidate. Kemp revealed his plans to stay out of the race in a recent Wall Street Journal interview after his name had been floated in some polls and the outlet had published an opinion piece by consultant Scott Wescott declaring Kemp a “logical choice” for the job. Kemp, a popular governor who has gained national prominence in recent years, also told the WSJ he is “keeping an open mind” about...

    Georgia and Iowa have become the latest states to ban child sex changes as Republicans across the country move to stop the surge in demand for what they argue is a form of child mutilation. Georgia Senate Bill 140, which was signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp on Thursday, will “prohibit certain surgical procedures for the treatment of gender dysphoria in minors from being performed in hospitals and other licensed healthcare facilities… so as to prohibit certain surgical procedures for the treatment of gender dysphoria in minors.”The move was celebrated by conservative activists, including the group Moms for America,...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) said he is undecided on whether he will vote to block Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, expressing concern about censorship of opposing views. “The reason I think a lot of Republicans want to kick Ilhan Omar off of the Foreign Affairs Committee is because they don’t like what she has to say,” Gaetz said on Newsmax Monday night. “I am undecided as of tonight as to whether or not I would vote to remove Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee, because it’s one thing to do dangerous things...

    For nearly two years, former President Donald Trump criticized Republican Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia for not helping him overturn now-President Joe Biden's victory in the Southern swing state in the 2020 election. In advance of the 2022 midterms, Trump even recruited former Sen. David Perdue to run against Kemp in the GOP gubernatorial primary, but the governor defeated him landslide — a reflection of his strength among Peach State conservatives. And in the November general election, Kemp defeated his Democratic archrival Stacey Abrams by nearly eight points, winning by nearly 300,000 votes — a marked improvement over his roughly...

    Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams‘ campaign owes more than $1 million to vendors following her second failed attempt to win the state’s governorship, according to a new report. Despite raising more than $100 million during her campaign, Ms. Abrams, hailed by many in her party as an organizing and voter-mobilizing star, has left her 180 former campaign staffers in a lurch by cutting off their pay a week after the Nov. 8 election, according to the political news website Axios. “People have told me they have no idea how they’re going to pay their rent in January,” a former staffer told...

    Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to create a Political Action Committee (PAC). Axios reported Sunday the governor initiated the process to create Hardworking Americans Inc., which will “allow the Republican to boost his national profile” as a possible signal for a U.S. Senate run or even a 2024 run. “Kemp’s unique success defeating a Trump-backed opponent in a primary and a Democrat in a key battleground has made him something of a case study for Republicans. It’s also paved the way for speculation about his future national ambitions,” Axios noted.

    Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock’s church could soon be hit with a subpoena for failing to answer a legal inquiry into its charitable operations. The Georgia Secretary of State’s Securities and Charities Division has demanded the Ebenezer Building Foundation — a foundation run the Democratic pol’s Ebenezer Baptist Church — explain its charitable status within the state, Fox News reported. The Division’s records indicate that Ebenezer Building Foundation, Inc […] is not registered as a charitable organization with the State of Georgia,” the Securities and Charities Division wrote in an Oct. 12 letter. The letter added that the foundation could be...

    Herschel Walker barnstormed the state of Georgia for the last year hunting for enough GOP votes to get elected to the U.S. Senate. But the one person he could have really used help from was Gov. Brian Kemp. The governor has proven to be the most popular Republican in the state. He routed former Sen. David Perdue in a Donald Trump-sponsored GOP primary by more than 50 points and, after seeing Republicans outmanned on the ground in 2021, plowed millions into his own get-out-the-vote operation to give Democrats a run for their money. It’s not that Kemp wouldn’t offer his...

    Congratulations to Stacey Abrams on her second term in office as president of space after her latest effort to claim victory in Georgia fell apart.For Democrats this ought to count as a win because the midterms have likely freed them from the giant money sponges of Beto O’Rourke and Stacey Abrams in one fell swoop.And both grifters seemed to have a limitless ability to promote themselves and burn money. Including from Evil Inc’s very own ATM.Soros’ Democracy PAC II sent $1 million to the committee on March 11 and another $1.5 million on June 23 for a total of $2.5...

    Brian Kemp is a winner. Though his margin of victory was large, his win was not inevitable. Donald Trump made it a mission to defeat Kemp after he refused to play along with Trump’s stolen-election nonsense in 2020. He endorsed David Perdue, the former Georgia senator, in the Republican primary. Going up against the former president, who remains the most prominent personality in the Republican Party, was no small task. But Kemp approached his reelection campaign intentionally and with considerable skill. First step: Defeat Perdue. Already a known quantity statewide, Perdue could have defeated Kemp. Many other Republicans who faced...

    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace claimed Monday on ABC’s “The View” that the Republican Party stands for not condemning antisemitism and “owning the libs.” Co-host Sunny Hostin said, “Let me ask you this though. Some Trump-backed candidates are in tight, tight races. Dr. Oz, J.D. Vance, Kari Lake and of course, the Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker. Even with accusations about Walker paying ex-girlfriends to get abortions, the Republicans seem to be focused on getting the Senate at any cost.” She asked, “What is your view of that, and what does the party stand for right now?”
