Warnock fends off Republican Herschel
Walker in Georgia, handing Democrats outright
majority in Senate

Original Article

Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) won reelection Tuesday, fending off a spirited challenge from Republican Herschel Walker while helping Democrats grow their thin Senate majority in the midterm elections after a bruising four-week runoff campaign. Warnock was leading Walker 50.4% to 49.6% when the race was called, earning the senator his first, full six-year term after ousting an appointed Republican incumbent in a special election runoff nearly two years ago. Walker’s defeat was a major blow to the Republicans. They capped a disappointing midterm election season with yet another loss that effectively surrendered a Senate seat to the Democrats, who saw their majority grow from 50 to 51.

How is it that, if a Republican is leading after all the votes are counted, they can't call the election for the Republican for a week or two to make sure that all the absentee votes (and illegal Demon-Rat vote dumps) are counted.? But if a Demon-Rat is ahead, they call the race before all the votes are even counted? Silly question -- I know...

One happy camper is Mitch McConnell who will now be able to gloat that yet another Trump selection bit the dust, even though it is he, as leader, who lost the Senate in 2020 and lost another seat in 2022. In any real organization that had failed so badly, McConnell and the two stiffs that flank him while he mumbles to the press, would be booted out as abject failures.

If by ''fends off'' you mean ''outspent'' then you may be right. The AH republicans have zipped up their wallets and the all-cash all the time Democrats all over the world have meddled in Georgia politics x 10.

Stop it. Georgia wasn't stolen. Walker lost. He was out spent, out campaigned and out classes. Walker was the GOP nominee for one reason only. He didn't have a message and way too many skeletons in the closet. Warnock ran ads 24/7 beating Walker like a drum. And don't forget that of the 8 state wide races, Republicans won 7 of them. Ya'll forget that Georgia was a blue state until 2002. I've been saying it for four years that the GOP was taking Georgia for granted. The 2018 mid-term election should have been a wake up call when Abrams came within 50000 votes to being the Governor. And for the record, Kemp has been a good governor. Oh sure.....he didn't illegally overturn the 2020 election results and hand the win to Trump. But aside from not doing something illegal, he's been a good governor. Who somehow managed a 5% win in his re-election bid.

I am certain that DJT's involvement in the primaries lost us the Senate. Folks, we can love DJT, but many people just don't like him. Instead of whining about 2020, we should have focused like a laser in getting out the vote and holding our noses and accepting the fact that winning even with a RINO here and there is better than what has just happened.

Republicans won a lot of races in GA, but not Walker. Let's see that makes NH, PA, AZ, NV and now GA Senate races have been lost. What do the all have in common - the losers were all Trump hand picked candidates. Independents and far too many women will not vote for anybody associated with Trump - that message is clear. Republican candidates in GA who were not hand picked by Trump won. I don't know how may elections we have to lose before we learn that Trump is toxic to a large number of voters - Trump and his candidates cannot win general elections.

So now the narrative is that Walker failed to publicly crawl on his knees to Trump and beg for his support? And/or that the GOP wouldn't allow Trump to campaign for Walker, as if Trump takes his orders from the GOP rather than being the defacto leader of the GOP, by virtue of his popularity? It was obvious that control of the Senate was at stake, the very body in which a Republican majority prevented Trump from being removed from office and permanently banned, not just once but twice.

No longer are our elections free and fair. The communist death democrats are firmly in control. Forget about 2024, by then the elections will be totally rigged no matter who runs as the republican candidate. We are no longer a Constitutional Republic. Choices: 1. Purge and reform the republican party - Do not see this happening as of today or tomorrow. If we had a real republican party then they would be supporting Kari Lake in contesting her stolen elections. By the way if Kari Lake is being cheated and refusing to concede because the Arizona elections are totally corrupt, what about Blake Masters Senate election? Has he concede and if so why did he when his election has to be as corrupt as the Governor's race. No republican candidate should concede. 2. Mass civil disobedience against the communist federal government including unconstitutional rulings by the Federal and Some state Courts. Refuse to obey. 3. Red States band together and take back their sovereignty rights from the Communist Federal Government and push back against all the Federal Agencies. Make sure the National Guard is under their control. 4. Spontaneous Mass uprisings occur when food, fuel, electricity are scarce, rationed, or no longer available. Of course the sheeple in California are already accepting these daily occurrences without a peep. Not a good sign. 5. Hot Civil War - God Forbid. One other comment - Stop blaming our lawfully re-elected President Trump for these election losses which are a combination of the republican traitors like McConnell and McCarthy and Rona Romney McDaniel sabotaging so many candidates, absolute rampant cheating by the communist death democrats and their tech and media allies, and the republican traitors going along with the cheating. How can Georgia elect a republican governor and not a republican Senator?

Washington - U.S. Justice Department has asked a federal judge to hold former Donald Trump's office in contempt of court for failing to fully comply with a subpoena to return all classified documents in the former president's possession, the Washington Post reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter. U.S. District Court Judge Beryl Howell has not yet held a hearing or ruled on the request, the newspaper reported. One of the key areas of disagreement centers on the Trump legal team's repeated refusal to designate a custodian of records to sign a document attesting that all classified materials have been returned to the federal government, the report added.

Woke corporations have taken up Democratic talking points on culture war issues, but they still expect Republicans to protect them from Democrats seeking to regulate them.

After months of negotiation, the Biden administration on Thursday freed convicted notorious arms trafficker Viktor Bout in exchange for U.S. basketball star Brittney Griner, who has been detained in Russia on drug charges. Bout had been serving a 25-year prison sentence in the U.S. In April 2012, he was found guilty of conspiring to kill Americans and U.S. officials, acquiring and exporting anti-aircraft missiles, and aiding a terrorist organization. For his illegal weapons exploits, the notorious criminal earned the moniker “Merchant of Death,” inspiring the Hollywood film Lord of War, starring Nic Cage.

It has been a very bad few weeks for former President Donald Trump. His candidates in key swing states lost for the most part, and those who didn’t still ended up with far fewer Republican votes than non-Trump candidates. He announced the start of his 2024 presidential campaign and has done nothing significant since then. Then, this week, his family business was found guilty of criminal tax fraud and the January 6 Committee has made it clear criminal referrals are coming. The failure of the campaign to meaningfully launch has been noted. Donald Trump launched his candidacy three weeks ago, but you’d barely know it from watching his campaign.

It’s been somewhat amusing to watch the majority of the mainstream media trying to spin the midterm election results. Some consistent themes we’ve seen on CNN and MSNBC, as well as in the pages of the Washington Post, have been that Americans “rejected” the Republican agenda and – far more importantly – the Bad Orange Man. One might interpret such a view as meaning that voters embraced the Democrats and were satisfied with how they are handling things. But as the latest poll published by the Associated Press clearly shows us, that isn’t the case at all. Joe Biden’s approval rating is still in the toilet,

Just how historically anomalous was Herschel Walker's 2-point loss to incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in the runoff on Tuesday? Consider these facts in light of the reality that President Joe Biden expanded Democratic control of the upper congressional chamber to a 51-49 majority. Since World War II, the president's party has gained Senate seats in only four of those 19 midterm elections. For the first time since the 17th Amendment, which transferred the voting power of senators directly to the people, all incumbent senators in the president's party running for reelection won.

Former WNBA star Brittney Griner was reportedly released by Russia in a prisoner swap for a notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, according to a US official. In February, Griner, a two-time Olympic basketball champion, was arrested by Russia and pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis vape cartridges at an airport near Moscow. Possessing seven grams or more carries criminal penalties in Russia.

The Climate Cult worships two green idols: electric vehicles and wind-solar energy. This is part of a futile U.N. scheme promoting "Net Zero Emissions," which aims to cool the climate of the world by waging war on CO2 plant food. Green worship is the state religion of all Western nations. It is promoted by billionaires with other agendas and endlessly repeated by the U.N., the bureaucracy, all government media, state education, and most big business leaders. The promotion of electric cars and trucks will cause a great increase in the demand for electricity to replace diesel, petrol, and gas.

Gunrunner, never-charged criminal, political hack, and perpetually aggrieved former attorney general Eric Holder is back, bloviating about President Trump being imminently arrested. Given that we live in post-Republic times and that the Department of (in)Justice has exhibited no shame or remorse in its years-long campaign of political persecution and partisan double-standards, I'll take Obama's contemptible "wingman" at his word just this once. So Democrats, Establishment Republicans, and the Deep State Leviathan plan on humiliating President Trump by frog-marching him before the world and tossing him in the clink

The House Committee on Ethics said Wednesday it is investigating Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.). The panel released a statement saying the Office of Congressional Ethics forwarded its inquiry into the progressive congresswoman to the panel in June, which typically suggests the office believes an ethics law was violated. It was not immediately clear what the investigation was about. “The Committee notes that the mere fact of a referral or an extension, and the mandatory disclosure of such an extension and the name of the subject of the matter, does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the Committee,” the panel said.

In a way, last night’s runoff election in Georgia provided the perfect cap to a midterm cycle full of missed opportunities and poor assumptions. Herschel Walker narrowly lost as a celebrity outsider to a two-year Senate Democrat incumbent who should have been uniquely vulnerable in 2022. And yet Walker finished behind Raphael Warnock not once but twice, in a state that elected Republicans into every other statewide office last month. Walker couldn’t get to 50% in either try despite the results of the regular election for Republicans in all other statewide races: Governor: Brian Kemp over Stacey Abrams, 53.4/45.9 SecState: Brad Raffensperger 53.2/44.0 over Bee Nguyen Lt. Governor: Burt Jones 51.4/46.4
