Abrams Declares Victory After Losing Voter
Suppression Lawsuit

Original Article

After nearly four years and millions of wasted taxpayer funds, U.S District Judge Steve C. Jones ruled on Friday that Georgia’s election practices had violated neither the Constitution nor the Voting Rights Act (VRA) during the 2018 gubernatorial election. Shortly after losing that election to Republican Brian Kemp, Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams famously blamed her loss on voter suppression and filed a federal lawsuit against Georgia’s Secretary of State and Election Board via her advocacy group, Fair Fight Action, Inc. Judge Jones finally put the Peach State out of its misery by ruling in favor of Georgia on all counts.

A politician who uses the court in such a manner and LOSES should be liable for the costs he/she necessitated by the state. I think 'loser pays' should be the order of the day in damn near every trial both civil and criminal. We wouldn't need half the trials/courts/judges/lawyers we are currently saddled with. District attorneys might be more careful with our dollars knowing that a million dollar loss would likely ensure their loss in the next election and higher office elections to come.

Stacey Abrams wasted taxpayer money. This is not a surprise. It's Democrat street cred. Spend money for nothing. Will Stacey say she won this time when Kemp cleans her clock? No doubt, yes she will shout it from the highest rafters. The alphabets will be complicit. Again not a surprise. It's what Dems and Deep Staters do.

What is with these communist politicians? Even when caught red handed they deny, deny, deny. They dont even argue, they just contradict. Whatever the truth is they scream the opposite. Its childish behavior that they never seem to have outgrown.

In Stacey's little mind but Brobdingnagian body, if the black candidate doesn't win, it's racism. It doesn't matter if she is racist herself or unqualified to handle a bucket and mop or generally unlikeable, she was discriminated against.

There is one area of voting eligibility where I may be sympathetic to black complaints. That area is the address of the voter. If you watch Judge Judy, you might reach the same conclusion that I have reached - that young, single blacks in urban areas seem to move a lot, often sharing apartments and houses. And that they seem to move more often than whites. If my perception is correct, then there will be a lot more cases where blacks have current addresses that do not match up with voter registrtion records. I don't hve a solution for this problem, but point it out as an area of legitimate concern.

#11 I have an idea. You must live at a location for a full calendar year before you are eligible to vote from that location. I’m sorry, but anyone who is too unstable to have a regular place to live is in no place to pick the leaders of the country.

2nd post apologies, but to address #16, I understand your logic, but such a requirement would not hold up under the Voting Rights Act of 1965. It would have a disproportionate effect on blacks.

The methodology suggested by #16 would disqualify anyone who had moved in the previous year. Obviously, not everyone who moves does so because they are feckless and unstable. People who have moved could conceivably vote from a previous address, but there are glaring problems with that option too.

Where is all of Stacey Abrams' PAC money going? 16 replies
Posted by Garnet 10/15/2022 12:40:47 PM Post Reply
After Stacey Abrams lost her 2018 bid to be the next Governor of Georgia (not that she admitted the loss until recently), she founded a political action committee named Fair Fight PAC that was intended to “combat voter suppression” in the Peach State, which she blamed for her loss or unacknowledged victory, depending on which day you asked her. Fair Fight PAC has since raked in a considerable flow of cash from liberals around the nation who sympathized with her unfair treatment at the hands of the corrupt Republicans in Georgia or whatever. But where has all of that money been going?

Tulsi Gabbard is leaving the Democratic Party because it no longer reflects her values. In a Twitter thread and accompanying video, Gabbard cited the party’s adherence to a woke, alienating agenda. Gabbard discussed her concerns about racial division and anti-white racism, the abandonment of the rule of law, the prioritization of the well-being of criminals over the safety of law-abiding citizens, and the rejection of objective reality, particularly in the realm of biological sex.. "Women exist and are not just a construct in someone’s mind," she said, highlighting the ways in which radical gender theory has obliterated the definition and use of the word "woman,"

The U.S. economy continues to show signs that it is in a recession and that recovery is going to take a long, long time. The housing market is serving as the canary in the coal mine. Per CNBC, "total mortgage application volume fell 14.2%" in the last week of September, compared with the previous week. Refinancing volume dropped 18 percent for the week and "was 86% lower than the same week one year ago." Mortgage applications to purchase a home fell 13 percent and are down 37 percent from last year.

Americans have long since come to expect debates between candidates for major public office. For many voters, these encounters provide the only opportunity to see how competing candidates comport themselves in a venue that is nominally beyond their control. In close contests, these debates can sometimes be crucial to the final outcome. Yet, as the November midterms rapidly approach, many Democrats have been extremely reluctant to meet their Republican opponents face-to-face on a debate stage. Indeed, in several high-profile contests, they have flatly refused to do so.

In his campaign for a crucial U.S. Senate seat, Democrat John Fetterman takes credit for reinventing Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor’s office, transforming it from a political pit stop into a “bully pulpit” from which he’s advanced progressive causes. Records from Fetterman’s four years in office, however, offer a different portrait of his time in the $179,000-a-year elected job. They show Fetterman typically kept a light work schedule and was often absent from state business, including presiding over the state Senate, which is one of his chief duties, according to an Associated Press review of his daily calendars and attendance records. The review found that Fetterman’s daily schedule was blank

Of all the numbers from our recent NBC News/Telemundo poll of Latino voters, this set maybe stands out the most: Conservative Latinos have gone from Democratic-leaning voters in 2012 to Republican base voters now. In the merged NBC News/Wall Street Journal polls of 2012, 49% of self-described conservative Latinos said they preferred Democratic control of Congress, versus 40% who wanted Republicans in charge — a 9-point edge for Democrats. But in our Sept. 2022 NBC News/Telemundo poll, a whopping 73% of conservative Latinos say they prefer Republicans in control of Congress, versus 17% who prefer Democrats — a 56-point advantage for the GOP.

Sometimes you see a polling result that jumps out from the page. That was the case when I saw a recently released Gallup poll on who Americans think can better handle the issue that is most important to them. Put in a historical context, this poll potentially portends very good things for Republicans come November. We’re all used to polls that ask voters which issue is most important to them. Gallup puts the question to Americans open-ended, meaning a respondent can say anything from the mundane (e.g. inflation) to the inane (e.g. clowns). Gallup, unlike other pollsters, has another twist on that question.

Second, anyone who dares question the accuracy of this claim will be either ignored or denounced as a dangerous anti-science “denier.” Third, if the hurricane happens to hit a state with a GOP governor, he will be blamed for causing any resultant death and destruction.

The opposition was stubborn. And President Biden, frustrated. So, he started the year with a simple question: “What are Republicans for?

They have written a comprehensive policy memo, called the “Family Policy Agenda” and first obtained by RealClearPolitics, which includes over 80 specific recommendations that they will try to make law if the GOP wins control of Congress.

"We've noted that flu activity is starting to increase across much of the country," especially in the Southeast and south-central U.S., the CDC's director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, told NBC News. "Not everybody got flu vaccinated last year, and many people did not get the flu. So that makes us ripe to have potentially a severe flu season."(Snip)"Flu is on the rise, but it's also all of these other viruses that got knocked off kilter," Esper said.
