Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is used to prosecuting high-profile, challenging cases. But as she parried questions about her own personal conduct from the witness stand against the legal teams for defendants her office has accused of election interference, many Black women recognized a dispiriting scene.


Since when did this trainwreck become about skin color? Arrogant, stupid, and entitled come in all colors.

Tragedy in many acts. Disagree with an ABW and you're a hateful racist, regardless of her lies and deceit.

Fanni campaigned for the job by bashing the former holder of it because he had a "Relationship" with a subordinate...not only did she eviscerate him for doing so, she swore it would NEVER happen on "Her Watch". HE didn't give $Hundreds of Thousands in County funds to HIS paramour. Another Fulton judge at that time was caught having an affair with a public defender...28 cases were thrown out, nullified. BOTH Fanni and Wade were well aware of those cases and their causes, as BOTH had been judges/Magistrates during that period. And had both been practicing attorneys as well.

Shes a barely literate, obnoxious dolt. If she wasn't black she'd be cleaning rooms at the local no-tell motel. The only reason she prosecuted the case is because Soros paid her big to do it. She was too stupid to know it would destroy her ill-gotten career. Bet she knows it now.

Gee, How stupid of me. I thought that in this country under our Justice System, no matter who you are or what color skin you happened to be born with, if you break the law you will be held accountable for your crime and made to pay for your wrong doing. According to this disgusting race card article by a couple of communist death democrat propaganda hacks, I totally forgot that if you are a black women in any position of authority you automatically are not subject to the same laws as the rest of us. I understand this now and will go forward completely disregarding that blacks are 12% of the population and commit the majority of crimes in our country and are instead wonderful people just like in all the commercials on tv. Makes total sense. I guess I am wrong again.

Shouldn't their headline read: "...Frustration WITH Black Women Leaders?" Or is AP just playing a kissy-black face, the same as the sap judge did with that nasty Fanny dame in Georgia?

This article is a joke, right? It's one of the outright funniest--in the sense of "absurd"-- attempts I can remember to deflect attention from the utter disaster that is Fani Willis. Talk about pointing and yelling "Look! Squirrel!" Fani is a grifter, a poseur, and embarassment, a black hole (pardon the pun) of incompetence, a tragic excuse for an officer of the court and law enforcement official who got where she is by dint of pure, abject racism and once there, failed to rise above her racist roots and remained mired in the typical lifestyle of the ghetto negress that she has proven herself to be, through and though.

Her admission that she had an affair after he was hired is even worse. It is called 1st degree sexual harrasment.

I made it about 3 or 4 paragraphs in before the urge to vomit stopped me. This woman is such a pile of garbage. Re-read #2's informative comment. I recall a conversation I had, years ago, with a co-worker who happened to be black. In the course of the conversation, he said "When you ain't right, you got to BE right." I asked, and he explained that, for instance, if your driver's license or insurance had expired (when you ain't right) you had to drive carefully and obey all the traffic laws (you got to BE right) to avoid attracting attention, being pulled over, your license and insurance checked and their expiration being discovered. Likewise, this broad should have 'been right' and kept a low profile until the case was over. Apparently, that did not enter her head, and her flagrantly immoral and improper -not to say illegal- behavior has put her -and her Democ'RAT backers 'behind the green curtain' - plans in jeopardy. Now she's using the universal [Enword] defense..... scream "RAAAAACCCCIIISSSSTTTT!!!" at anyone who points out her blatantly wrongful behavior.... and the Antiamerican Press plays right along with her.

The blame for this rests squarely on the shoulders of affirmative action diversity hires who are given more than they can achieve and, as a result, not only fail to live up to the demands of the job, but also face constant suspicion that skin color is the reason they got the job to start with. Fani Willis is the Peter Principle right out of the gate without the benefit of having been promoted just one level above her competence. She was voted into a position that is 3-4 levels higher than her abilities.

Surprised it took this long for the race card to be played. Yeah, everyone wants equality and equity, just not when it comes to equal application of the law and the punishments when broken. Fani is a liar. She did exactly what her predecessor did and she excoriated him for it. But Fani checks more boxes.

Oh poor, poor Fanis. As if the sex ives of white men haven't been spread to eviscerate them for centuries. Alexander Hamilton, Clinton, Trump, John Edwards, Gary Hart and on and on. But a poor innocent black woman can't be held to the same standard. Oh not, that's racism. It has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with politics. Fanis just got a dose of the hard nose hardcore politics on a national stage. And the A ball minor leaguer Fanis was so smug in her blackness that she thought she was immune. Wake up, sisters!

MSNBC host Joy Reid lamented that black Americans have not received sufficient reparations for “literally, physically” building this country, believing that former President Barack Obama’s eight-year tenure is the best they will get. Reid issued her comments during an interview on Salon Talks with writer Dean Obeidallah wherein she said that black people “literally, physically, built this country” and therefore deserve much more than a two-term black president.“To be a Black person in 2024 in America is to be in a state of complete perplexed confusion about what is wrong with a country that hates your history, that to this day can’t admit

The Biden administration is reportedly taking its goal of a temporary cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war to the U.N. Security Council as early as Tuesday. The administration is said to have proposed a draft U.N. Security Council resolution which in part would call for a temporary cease-fire and call on Israel not to go into Rafah in the Gaza Strip. According to Reuters, the U.S. text states in part that it "determines that under current circumstances a major ground offensive into Rafah would result in further harm to civilians and their further displacement including potentially into neighboring countries."

Scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Massachusetts are planning an experiment in which they will dump approximately 6,000 gallons of sodium hydroxide — a common ingredient in soaps, cleansers, and chemical pipe cleaners — into the waters off of Martha’s Vineyard. The experiment is a part of WHOI’s LOC-NESS project, which seeks to ascertain whether artificial alkalinity enhancement of the Earth’s oceans can help in global efforts to address so-called global warming..
Donald Trump’s Russia ties remain a

Many gasped recently when Donald Trump said he’d encourage Russia “to do whatever the hell they want” with NATO allies who don’t pay their share of the transatlantic alliance’s defense spending. It was a brazen but hardly surprising turn from someone who has shown a long and loyal affection for Russian President Vladimir Putin, a wanted war criminal. Trump has called Putin — a former KGB agent who jails and murders critics — smart, savvy, and his friend. Trump sided with Putin after a U.S. intelligence community assessment found Russia meddled in the 2016 election. More troubling, in 2017 Trump shared highly classified intelligence with the Russian ambassador.

It’s clear that America’s open border is an unmitigated disaster, allowing over 300,000 known migrants to enter the U.S. each month. Migrants are arriving from all over the world, including from geopolitical adversaries like China and Afghanistan. Few are vetted, meaning their health, criminal, education, vocations, literacy, and motivations are unknown. Anyone can ask for political asylum, as they are coached to do. To federal border agents, they are a massive herd of cattle, and it’s all they can do just to get them across the border, feed and hydrate them, and put them on plane to Denver, New York, or Chicago. There are also an unknown number of euphemistically.

House Republicans were shocked by some of the recent high-profile retirements announced by their colleagues, which have included powerful committee chairs and rising stars inside the GOP. But given the miserable state of affairs inside the House right now, they also weren’t exactly surprised. “They’ve signed up to do serious things. And we’re not doing serious things,” said Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado, a conservative who is retiring after bucking his party on several key issues. Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska, a moderate who represents a key swing seat, pointed to his party’s struggle to govern as driving the departures.

A presidential candidate’s running mate is usually chosen to “balance” the ticket to shore up electoral weaknesses. But in former President Donald Trump’s case, his vice presidential pick is likely to receive added scrutiny due to his multitude of legal problems. That’s why this month I&I/TIPP asked U.S. voters: Who should Trump’s vice presidential running mate be? To find out who’s potentially strongest as a vice presidential candidate, I&I/TIPP’s national online poll, taken by 587 registered Republican primary voters from Jan. 31-Feb. 2, asked two questions: “If Trump wins the Republican nomination, who would be your top choice for his Vice President?”

One of the creepiest videos I’ve ever seen showed a mixed-up partnership in which the man claimed to be a woman, and the woman claimed to be a man. That’s not even the creepy part. What was creepy was that the woman (i.e., fake man) had a baby, and the man (i.e., fake woman) tried to “breastfeed” that poor little infant. That was bad. Much worse is that a trust in Britain’s National Health Service is claiming that a man given a dangerous chemical cocktail can, in fact, breastfeed a baby. Matt Walsh gives a good rundown of what led to the video and then has the actual clip itself.

Joe Biden is starting to ride back his committments on forcing the transition to electric vehicles (EVs). According to a report from The New York Times, Biden's administration is giving up on its targets for production of EVs in an apparent "concession" to automakers and labor unions.The plan is also said to be an election ploy as Democrats fear losing the support of automakers and labor unions: Instead of essentially requiring automakers to rapidly ramp up sales of electric vehicles over the next few years, the administration would give car manufacturers more time, with a sharp increase in sales not required until after 2030, these people said.

Shocking images and video taken in California this weekend show Chinese migrants lined up at the border town of Jacumba and telling reporters shamelessly how they're here to 'take the money'. Dozens and dozens, possibly up to hundreds of migrants, crossed the international boundary, according to Griff Jenkins of Fox News, who recorded the footage. 'This is one of the largest groups of Chinese I have ever come across and there were [...] two groups at the same time crossing in Jacumba, CA,' the correspondent tweeted last week.
