‘He’s toast’: GOP leaves Raffensperger
twisting in the wind

Original Article

The former president is obsessed with defeating him next year. He’s getting mauled by his own state party. Last week alone, a Republican congressman announced he’d challenge in the primary and the state legislature voted to strip his office of some official powers. By most accounts, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger doesn’t have a prayer of being reelected. “He’s toast,” said Jay Williams, a Georgia-based Republican strategist. “I don’t know that there’s a single elected official who would put their neck out for Brad Raffensperger right now.”


Fine. He really let President Trump and the Republicans down big time. He deserves no support.

In the famous call between team trump and team raffenburgers if you listen to the whole hour the only one that sounded like a crook was raffenburgers. He is hiding something that needs to be brought to light.

He lied about his phone call with President Trump. Furthermore, he did everything in his power to thwart any meaningful investigation into the massive fraud that was conducted in his state. The man has zero integrity and although I cannot prove it, I believe he received a kickback from Dominion for purchasing their equipment prior to the 2020 election. He, was interested in getting rid of the President and serendipitously benefited personally from it. The man is vile opportunist lacking a moral compass. In a perfect world, he would have been investigated and would be serving time for the crimes he committed in the last election.

I read the article. Once again Politico is writing FAKE crap. Here's an example: "Yet after refusing to buckle to Donald Trump’s requests to change the state’s vote count..........." President trump did not ask this guy to change his count. He asked him to do an honest recount, certify signatures, etc. President Trump asked him to comply with the Georgia election law. Then this clown lied about what President Trump said.

Politico does what so many college kids do to try looking scholarly. They put a little bit of meat out and fill it in with garbage to increase the size of the article. They are the cheap dog food of reporting. As to the subject of the article...good riddance to him.

Lets not forget that Brian Kemp is as guilty of throwing that election as his Sec. of State was. Kemp thinks he can wash all of that away by signing the new Election Bill. I hope the Voters say NO WAY. He needs to be replaced as much as his Sec. of State. BOTH of them had to have been paid off by Zuckerberg. Kemp fought against Trump who wanted a recount and someone to examine the Dominion machines. BOTH Kemp and Raffensperger need to be thrown out of office!

Not an April fool’s joke, but it might as well be. Two media reports [Here and Here] about former VP Mike Pence considering a potential run for President in 2024 present the most laughable political hypothetical in recent memory. Particularly, and specifically, because even President Trump would likely not include Pence in a short list of people for endorsement.“WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump recently rattled off the names of those he viewed as future leaders of the Republican Party, including Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz along with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Conspicuously absent from the list: Mike Pence.
Congressman Matt Gaetz Claims Former
DOJ Lawyer David McGee Was Extorting

Two people inside the DOJ leaked a story about Matt Gaetz (R-FL) being under DOJ/FBI investigation to the New York Times. The essential elements of the article are that Gaetz had a relationship with a 17-year-old woman, and paid for her to travel; ergo the DOJ/FBI is investigating “sex trafficking.” Presumably AG Bill Barr opened the investigation. However, Matt Gaetz vehemently denies everything about the claims, and instead says the FBI and DOJ were recently conducting a sting operation -with his cooperation- against a former DOJ lawyer named David McGee who was extorting Gaetz for $25 million. According to Gaetz his father was contacted by McGee

For the past two weeks several media outlets have been reporting on the lack of DOJ evidence to support the claims of “sedition” and a grand conspiracy around the January 6th DC protests.Today Politico takes the walk-back reports one step further by warning the leftist ideologues that most of those arrested and/or accused will likely not serve any jail-time and will instead face misdemeanor trespassing violations. A POLITICO analysis of the Capitol riot-related cases shows that almost a quarter of the more than 230 defendants formally and publicly charged so far face only misdemeanors.

Twins Erin and Abby Delaney, who were born joined at the head, captured the world’s attention when they first survived separation surgery in 2016. They went on to thrive as toddlers; and now the feisty twins are 4 and preparing for their next major milestone: having cranial reconstruction. Born to parents Riley and Heather Delaney, of Statesville, North Carolina, the twins were joined at the top of the skull when they were born—making them rare “craniopagus” conjoined twins. Initially surviving countless preliminary surgeries and a mammoth 11-hour procedure that involved 30 doctors, the twins still weren’t out of the woods; Abby struggled post-surgery with numerous complications, including brain bleeds and sepsis.

It is remarkable to see how quickly the unified opinion against former President Trump and for the alleged necessity of removing him from the White House has cracked apart since that goal was achieved.

For the past four years, Democrats and the Washington media have suspended disbelief about the Steele dossier’s credibility by arguing that some Russia allegations against Donald Trump and his advisers have been corroborated and therefore the most explosive charges may also be true. But recently declassified secret testimony by the FBI official in charge of corroborating the dossier blows up that narrative.The top analyst assigned to the FBI’s Russia “collusion” case, codenamed Crossfire Hurricane, admitted under oath that neither he nor his team of half a dozen intelligence analysts could confirm any of the allegations in the dossier — including ones the FBI nonetheless included in several warrant applications as

As the federal response to Chinese influence at American universities falters, Tennessee is determined to pick up the slack by becoming the first state to ban the Chinese government-funded Confucius Institute from public universities. After President Joe Biden scrapped a Trump-era proposal that would have required universities to disclose their foreign monetary ties, Governor Bill Lee realized that he needed to act quickly to protect the state's universities from Chinese influence. The Tennessee Republican introduced a bill in the state legislature that would require the public universities to sever ties with the Confucius Institute.

The professional bleeding hearts publicly speak against a border crisis. They moan about the fate of women and children. But the bleeding hearts planned and executed this crisis. They invited the cruelty by lying about President Emeritus Donald Trump. The bleeding hearts embraced the human trafficking of women and children, despite the abuse they face from the people who transport them to the border. Illegal aliens are treated as chattel. We have known about this for over a decade, and yet liberals and the Washington Establishment support the trafficking of human beings.

Having sex with a minor is serious business and should be punished. No charges have been brought against the congressman. In fact, it’s “unclear,” to use the NYT’s word, whether it even rises to an “investigation.” Forgive us if we’re a bit skeptical of the same news outfits that “reported” planned leaks that Trump was a Russian secret agent who hired hookers
