    Donald J. Trump ^ | January 21, 2022 | Donald J. Trump
    So let me get this straight, I am being investigated in Georgia for asking an Attorney General with many lawyers and others knowingly on the phone to look for corruption, which definitely took place in the Georgia Presidential election—but the people who committed the crime are in no way, shape, or form under investigation and are instead being protected? The people looking for the crime are being hounded and the people who committed the crime are being protected. This is not the American way.
  • Before Elections, Georgia Republicans Again Consider Voting Restrictions

    NY Times ^ | 13 January 2022 | Richard Fausset and Michael Wines
    A sweeping 2021 law drew a legal complaint from the Justice Department. Legislators in the state are considering several new measures focused on ballot access and fraud investigations. ATLANTA — Butch Miller, a Republican leader of the Georgia State Senate, is running for lieutenant governor and faces a tough fight this spring against a primary opponent backed by former President Donald J. Trump. So perhaps it is no surprise that Mr. Miller, a co-sponsor of a sweeping and restrictive state voting law last year, has once again jumped into the fray, promoting a new measure to prohibit the use of...

    Former Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) introduced a plan on Thursday to create an Election Law Enforcement Division in Georgia should he be elected as the state’s next governor. The proposal entails creating a law enforcement unit that would be responsible for investigating and, when necessary, arresting individuals caught violating Georgia election law.

    Just a month before the 2020 election, radio host Rush Limbaugh commented that Democrats “resent the whole premise behind elections. Look, they don’t believe they should have to persuade anybody to agree with them … The modern-day Democrats have to go through the motions of campaigning, and they have to go through the motions of trying to win the hearts and minds of voters. But they resent the h-ll out of it. And in their world, it’s the one thing standing in their way: This need, this requirement to win elections. And I’m just telling you: As soon as they...

    While David Perdue was a great Senator for Georgia, Brian Kemp substantially weakened the Voter Rights Bill led by the Republican Senate, cutting out many of the most powerful regulations. The people of Georgia love David Perdue and Herschel Walker. These numbers are staggering! Read the full article by Matthew Boyle with Breitbart here.

    If resident Joe Biden's disorderly and lethal Afghanistan withdrawal was the moment that fractured voters' regard for him, then his vicious Atlanta speech last week may be the moment that defines his presidency. Speaking Tuesday at Morehouse College and Clark Atlanta University, Biden uttered venomous, brutal accusations lacking factual basis. His shouting-in-the-wind delivery was inexplicable, and his decision to lash out at members of his own party -- Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema -- appears to have only strengthened their resolve not to give in to his demands. Biden called those who disagree with his political views on legislation...

    Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) said Monday on ABC’s “The View” that Republican lawmakers not supporting the Democrats’ voting legislation were “anti-American.” Host Ana Navarro asked, “What would Dr. King make of the fact we’re still fighting for voting rights all these decades later, and arguably some would say going backward?”

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper pointed out Tuesday on his show “The Lead” that Democrats were only complaining about voting restrictions in red states, while blue states like New Jersey and Delaware did not allow ballot harvesting. After both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris gave speeches on the Democrats voting legislation in Georgia today, Tapper said, “Look, I genuinely as an American feel that in addition to guarding against fraud, which is very little of in the United States, it should be as easy as possible for Americans to vote.”

    It’s not often absolutely everything goes wrong. And by “everything” I mean everything. Imagine a day where you get fired, your spouse dumps you, you get food poisoning, all your accounts are hacked, your bank account drained, you get hit by a car, and your dog bites you. That would be a pretty bad day. That was Joe Biden’s week – absolutely everything that could go wrong, did. And it was glorious for America. It’s hard to overstate everything that happened last week – so much went wrong that you could easily forget some of it. It may well be...

    Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, a Republican, believes his party is at a crossroads as the 2022 midterm elections approach. And he says Republican voters need to choose between believing in disproven election fraud conspiracy theories and forging ahead with new leadership that will push the party toward a better place. “We're either gonna placate and play populism one on one and try to live 10 seconds at a time, or we're gonna put genuine leadership on display,” Duncan, who describes himself as a lifelong conservative, told Yahoo News, scoffing at the notion that the loudest GOP voices are its...

    It’s good to be Stacey Abrams. She’s the toast of the entertainment and news industries, and all she had to do was lose an election to a Republican. Rarely has so much praise and honor been awarded to a person so undeserving. Abrams is a “political visionary,” according to the press. She’s a voting rights champion and pioneer. She’s a savior whose tireless altruism is this country's best hope for a brighter, more equitable future. If one relied on her adoring press, one would think Abrams is a centrist Democrat who has revolutionized national politics. One would think she is...

    Stacey has a plan, and it’s only a surprise to people who haven’t paid attention. She plans to become the first Black woman governor in the United States next year. And then run for president in 2024 if Biden does not, or in 2028 if he does.” — Newsweek, November 2021 The quote comes from "an adviser who asked not to be identified to speak freely about her thinking." Fast-forward to Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2022. President Biden and Vice President Harris visited Abrams's home turf of Georgia to push their "voting rights" legislation, which is already on life support.

    Brad Raffensperger sparked a major conversation when he suggested a Constitutional Amendment to ensure that only United States citizens are voting in election, a chat that referenced New York recently allowing over 800,000 noncitizens access to vote in local minor elections. Raffensperger, Georgia's Republican Secretary of State, is up for re-election and targeted Democrats who continuously make claims about voter suppression, rejected that notion and defending his state of Georgia by saying, during an interview on "Face the Nation," the following: "I think that we have shown that Georgia has fair and honest elections..."

    The 2021-22 college football season came to a close on Monday night when Georgia beat Alabama 33-18 in the College Football Playoff finale to win its first national title in more than 40 years.

Sportsbooks apparently like their chances, as Georgia (+200) opened as co-favorites to win a national title in 2022, per odds from FanDuel Sportsbook. The Bulldogs may need to rebuild their stellar defense a bit, as many of their starters will be heading to the 2022 NFL...

    INDIANAPOLIS — Sometimes in life you see a story that is almost too hard to believe, and you wonder what kind of dedication it would take to lead someone to that reality. Well, look no further than Georgia starting quarterback Stetson Bennett, who wrote the final chapter of his own story on Monday night. In college football, a walk-on rarely touches the field during the regular season, much less become the starting quarterback of his team. He’s normally situated somewhere on the scout team, preparing his scholarship teammates for their next opponent. This was the case for Bennett, who played...

    President Biden plans to journey to Georgia on Tuesday to drum up support for a Democratic rewriting of the nation’s election laws and accuse Republicans of curtailing voting rights. A partisan showdown over election laws has become the Democrats’ top priority after the demise last month of Mr. Biden’s $1.75 trillion social justice and climate bill, which was the centerpiece of his domestic agenda. In Atlanta, Mr. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will lay a wreath at the crypt of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. before delivering a speech on voting rights, cementing the issue at the forefront of...

Alabama is trying to repeat as champions tonight versus Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Tide has found different ways to win all year, and it stems from the “Crimson Crane” celebration with Jameson Williams and John Metchie. After each touchdown, the two celebrated together. Williams is happy to achieve balance in his new home, while Metchie was excited to share responsibilities with his teammate.</p>
