Corrupt Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger Wants to Destroy Georgia Elections Forever with Ranked Choice Voting

 

Corrupt Georgia Republican Secretary of State is now proposing that the state go to ranked choice voting in the state indicating that he wants to ensure corrupt and bogus elections in the state for eternity.

We first learned of Raffensperger after the 2020 Election.  He certified the election for Joe Biden three days after Election Day.  This is after finding out that Raffensperger signed two agreements with Hillary attorney Marc Elias that changed the laws in the state related to absentee ballots.

Raffensperger oversaw the corrupt acts in the state reported to him the night of the election via Carter Jones.  This information was kept from President Trump and the rest of the country for half a year.

Raffensperger had three independent assessments of the election activities in the state presented to him after the election and he ignored all three.

The Carter Jones memos were ignored and the election certified despite rampant corruption and mis management.

Georgia State Senator and former Judge William Ligon and President Trump’s auditor in Georgia have never heard from Raffensperger despite rampant corruption and anomalies identified in the 2020 Election.

Special counsel subpoenas Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger in January 6 probe

Category: 

 

Special counsel Jack Smith has subpoenaed Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger as part of the Justice Department’s investigation into efforts to overturn the 2020 election and the US Capitol attack on January 6, 2021.

Mike Hassinger, public information officer with the Georgia secretary of state’s office, confirmed that Raffensperger’s office has received a subpoena from Smith.

“At the request of the Justice Department, we have no further comment,” Hassinger said in an email to CNN.

The grand jury activity expands on previous investigative steps the Justice Department has taken to understand efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies in battleground states after the election.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

Category: 

After a week full of surprise twists (the #TwitterFiles exposing a lot more than anticipated), not-so-surprise twists (Leftists being wrong again about Twitter being dead), and some disappointing-but-not-surprising twists (Herschel Walker couldn’t cross the goal line to win the Georgia Senate runoff election against Raphael Warnock), we finally have a story worth discussing that doesn’t involve Elon Musk.

Brittney Griner is coming home!

Now, if you’re like me (and if you are I’m so very sorry), you have little or no idea who Brittney Griner is. I will admit I had to do a bit of digging to get the facts behind why her release is such a big deal, and I agree it is. Just not for the reason the Left wants us to believe it is.

Brittney Griner

What the Left thinks it means – a brave woman freed after being imprisoned in Russia for no reason

What it really means – a prisoner released solely due to the social justice hierarchy

When Joe Biden took over as President, I knew there would be some bad decisions coming down the pike. I mean, he picked Kamala Harris as Vice-President, a woman so unpopular with Democrats that I got the same number of delegates she did and I didn’t even run. Sure enough, there were no supply chain issues with Puddin’ Head Joe’s bad decisions, as they kept coming in like a LGBQT+ wrecking ball.

Even with incredibly low expectations, I knew somehow the Biden Administration would find a way to limbo under them with room to spare. And that’s exactly what we got with the Griner release.

Much Ado About Independent Kyrsten Sinema

  • Her decision to leave the Democratic Party may help her win re-election in Arizona in 2024.
  • Her decision to leave the Democratic Party may help her win re-election in Arizona in 2024.

    by The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board, December 9, 2022

    Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s decision Friday to leave the Democratic Party and become an independent looks like a shrewd political move if she wants to run for re-election in 2024. What is less likely is that it will make much difference to Senate governance for the next two years.

    Democrats cemented their Senate majority with their victory in Georgia’s runoff on Tuesday, and Ms. Sinema’s departure doesn’t jeopardize that. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Ms. Sinema will keep her committee assignments, and she’ll still vote for President Biden’s nominees. So what’s changed apart from the political label? Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Maine’s Angus King are also nominally independent, but the next time they defy Democrats on a crucial vote will be the first.

    Ms. Sinema voted for President Biden’s priorities some 90% of the time this Congress. Where her independence has mattered in the last two years is preserving the Senate filibuster and opposing the worst elements of the Build Back Better plan, especially its tax-rate increases. That enraged the unforgiving left that now dominates the Democratic Party.

Trump faces another judgment in Georgia

Category: 

 

 

While the ex-president won the Peach State six years ago en route to the White House, it’s been a disastrous playing field for him ever since, rejecting his first re-election bid and rematch contenders at mid-term. His former aides and allies, meanwhile, are summoned before a special grand jury in the state investigating his efforts to overthrow of President Joe Biden win there in 2020.

 

On Tuesday, Trump’s Georgia futility could continue unless former Georgia running back Herschel Walker, a Heisman Trophy winner, can drag the MAGA banner over the line.

 

The Georgia Senate second round represents Trump’s latest opportunity to recast a painful midterm season in which his candidates who refuse the elections failed in swing states, casting a shadow over his fledgling 2024 presidential bid. A victory for Walker would be a rare victory for one of Trump’s recruits and potentially energize his lackluster campaign, while helping the Senate Minority Leader , Mitch McConnell, to limit Democratic power in Washington.

Rep. MTG Got Her A*s Handed To Her By Her Own Constituents During Painfully Awkward Live Call-In Show: “An Embarrassment To The State Of Georgia”

  • One of the Republican Party’s most notable stooges, Marjorie Taylor Greene, got the embarrassment of a lifetime while also being the embarrassment of a lifetime after her very own constituents brutally slammed her with criticism during a live call-in TV show.

    The Right-wing, nutcase House Rep. had joined in on North Georgia’s UCTV program, Night Talk, where she took phone calls from the very people she represents from her position in Congress. While it certainly went the way we pretty much expected it to, I don’t think it went the way Greene was hoping for.

    During her appearance on the call-in show, Greene was absolutely hammered with brutal criticism from local Georgians who not only heaped their praises on President Joe Biden for Marjorie to hear but did not hold back their attacks against the congresswoman for her relentless efforts to repeatedly cast doubt on the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election.

    One Georgian caller even went so far as to slam Greene as “an embarrassment to Georgia” — all on live TV.

    “Yes, I just want to say, ‘Thank god for Joe Biden,'” one woman who called into the show stated. “She is an embarrassment to the state of Georgia.”

    One of the hosts of the show stepped in and tried to do some quick damage control, telling the angry caller, “Well, we all have our opinions.”

    But she wasn’t backing down.

    “Amen to that,” the woman on the phone fired back at the host, “and I’ve got mine.”

Warnock vs Walker: Who Do Americans Prefer?

Warnock vs Walker: Who Do Americans Prefer?
  • Warnock and Walker Go Head-to-Head
  • Why Did the GOP Nominate Walker Anyway?
  • The Problems Keep Adding Up
  • Black Voters Overwhelmingly Choose Warnock
  • During a special election in January 2021, Raphael Warnock became the first black American senator from Georgia. Georgia is one of the first 13 states so this is a big win in breaking down racial barriers in the state.

    Warnock vs Walker: Who Do Americans Prefer?

    Warnock and Walker Go Head-to-Head

    On Tuesday, Warnock will go head-to-head with another black man, Republican Herschel Walker, in a race to secure a 6-year term.

    Both men grew up in the deep south and have similar upbringings, however, they couldn’t be more different. Warnock and Walker have different views on racism and conflicting hopes and plans for the nation.

    Based on what black voters have to say about the men, the choice is clear-cut. Warnock is a leader of a church, Martin Luther King’s Atlanta church, and places importance on the teachings of Martin Luther King and focuses on the black experience in America.

GOP’s Georgia Chances Dwindle as Democrat Takes Lead in US Senate Runoff

Category: 
  1. The Republican Party’s hopes that its nominee, Herschel Walker, could still win the US Senate race in Georgia in the December 6 runoff are “fading.”

Meanwhile his rival, Democrat incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock, is increasingly in the lead, according to a recent report from Politico. 

Georgia Republicans Hoping for Miracle

Neither Warnock nor Walker could clinch the seat in the regular midterm elections last month, as none received more than 50% of all votes.

The Democrat incumbent on November 8 got 49.4% of the votes – or 1,943,737, while the Republican challenger was a close second with 48.5% – or 1,907,272 votes.

Even though the Republicans are still “hope for a surprise” with Herschel Walker’s candidacy, their mood is getting grimmer by the day as the December 6 runoff is approaching.

 

Why is Warnock Winning?

At the same time, Sen. Raphael Warnock’s campaign has picked up momentum, even if a Walker victory remains a possibility.

Warnock gains early voting edge as both candidates barnstorm Georgia in final day before Senate runoff

Category: 

 

ATLANTA — Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock has built up an advantage in Georgia’s record-breaking early vote, putting Republican Herschel Walker in a position where he’ll need to deliver big on Election Day to win in Tuesday’s Senate runoff.

Georgians have been bombarded with TV ads, radio messages, direct mail and ceaseless fundraising appeals in the closely watched Senate race. Many of them are ready for it to be over.

“It’s been very, very exhausting,” said Ana Gomez, a sophomore at Georgia Tech who attended Warnock’s rally on campus Monday.

Over the long and grueling campaign, the two candidates have employed different strategies, with Warnock putting a premium on appeals to moderates and independents as Walker seeks to energize the Republican base in this former GOP stronghold.

On the airwaves, Warnock and his Democratic allies have outspent Republicans since the Nov. 8 general election.

But on the final day before the runoff, it was all about juicing turnout as each candidate held a packed schedule of events, focusing on areas where they have the strongest voter appeal.

Warnock hosted events in the Atlanta area with Sen. Jon Ossoff, D-Ga., as well as 25-year-old Rep.-elect Maxwell Frost, D-Fla., and the rapper Killer Mike, with an evening rally scheduled in the heart of the city.

“Seeing what Herschel Walker has said and the approach that he takes with his campaigning — to me, it just seems like a very obvious choice,” said Gomez, who said she plans to vote for Warnock on Tuesday. “What I really appreciate about Warnock is that he tries to appeal to both sides.”

Trump, Biden both steer clear of Georgia Senate runoff: The Note

Trump, Biden both steer clear of Georgia Senate runoff: The Note

 

A president will be visiting Georgia on Thursday — only not the current one or the one who wants his old job back.

Former President Barack Obama's evening rally for Sen. Raphael Warnock marks a chance for Democrats to drive up early-voting numbers that have already set records. Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, who recorded robocalls for Warnock, are obvious enough choices for Democrats to turn to in a race featuring two Black candidates.

But President Joe Biden has no plans to be in the state before the Tuesday runoff pitting Warnock against Republican Herschel Walker. The White House has said the president is "willing to do whatever is asked of him" in the race, though Warnock has deflected on whether he put in an ask, pointing out how time is tight before Tuesday, ABC's Lalee Ibssa reports.

The question of former President Donald Trump's involvement in the race is more complicated, given his relationship with Georgia Republicans and memories about how his involvement in the two January 2021 runoffs turned out.

Trump is almost singlehandedly responsible for Walker's candidacy and his easy path through the primary. But that same support may have cost Republicans votes last month: Gov. Brian Kemp got some 200,000 votes that Walker didn't, and Kemp cruised to a more than 7-point win even while Walker lost his head-to-head against Warnock.
