Understanding why Georgia Republican Governor
Brian Kemp Supports Corrupt Fulton County
DA Fani Willis

Original Article

Many casual political observers have been wondering about why the Georgia republican apparatus, including Brian Kemp, doesn’t just get involved and shut down the nonsense coming from Fulton County and political prosecutor Fani Willis. It’s an understandable reference point and curiosity, but if you understand Georgia republican politics you understand why the political leadership actually support Fani Willis.Republican and Democrat politics is a club structure. Factually, voters are irrelevant in the system the two private corporations have constructed.

Maybe because he's corrupt and was involved in the real Georgia election fraud?

Gov. Brian Kemp, GA, is nothing more than a thinner version of Chris Christie.

it's both parties. Democrats and Republicans: Opposite sides of the same dirty coin. it's not one party or the other. It's both. It's Washington and the influence they wield over the entire country. That's the essence of big controlling corrupt government out for their own personal gain. They are for sale. They will do anything to stay in power. it's not governing. It's tyranny.

I had hoped that this publication would provide some information as to why the Fulton District Attorney is running wild in a state that is controlled by Republicans. The headline promised such but I'm not surprised that information is scanty while innuendo is rampant. While Governor DeSantis is the governor of Florida and running for the 2024 Republican Party presidential nomination and has nothing to do with the running of Georgia, the article fingers him as the beneficiary of the Georgia Republican Party's machinations to destroy President Trump. The evidence? DeSantis, in an interview, said that if the Republican presidential candidate doesn't win Georgia, he will lose the election. That is undoubtedly true but for stating that fact DeSantis is portrayed as the stooge of Governor Kemp and the Georgia Republican Party establishment. There is more. DeSantis met with Georgia state senators, state house members and Governor Kemp! Can anyone imagine anything more nefarious than a candidate running for president as a Republican meeting with the Republican officials of the state he wants to win if he becomes the nominee? How shameless! Once again the headline promises much and delivers zero. There is not one theory, let alone fact, that explains why Governor Kemp supports the Fulton County District Attorney in her assault on President Trump. I'm sorry there was, as usual, no beef in this article. I regard Governor Kemp, as well as Brad Raffensperger, the Secretary of State, as weak, feckless Republicans who did indeed effectuate the theft in 2020. This article provided no new information and was just another excuse to smear Ron DeSantis.

Let's never forget that we lost the Senate and two Georgia seats in 2020, thanks solely to President Trump and his inability to see beyond himself, a fatal quality he demonstrated again in 2022 and is sadly repeating as we approach 2024.

#9, I'm not sure how accurately portraying the malfeasance of Governor Kemp and Secretary of State Raffensperger is disingenuous. I understand that supporters of these two men may not want to be reminded that Georgia entered into a consent decree with Stacy Abrams after she lost the governor's race in 2018. That consent decree, which violated the US Constitution that states it is the legislature that sets election rules. Not the governor. Not the secretary of state. That consent degree helped the Democrats to steal the election from Donald Trump. Some may give them a pass but I do not.

So Trump is the only President with an ego, really? I like to think the two GA senators themselves were also to blame for their losses. Loeffler - just screamed I'm here because I married a rich man. How about we just blame the people who voted for Warnock and Ossoff.

This is an excellent article, detailing the way the uni-party is using Democrat prosecutors to attack Trump in the courts while they promote DeSantis to challenge his nomination. This is a very important battle to restore representative government in the USA. I believe our enemy very much underestimates the intelligence of the American people. Their pride leads them to believe their wealth equals wisdom. They cannot prevail because they are evil.

Judas Iscariot didn’t have anything to do with the coming together of the Pharisees & Sadducees in the Sanhedrin plans to crucify Jesus for what they believed to be their mutual benefit. But he, like they, decided it would be of benefit to him to put aside differences with them to accomplish his personal desires. The evidence? He conferred with them and took the 30 pieces of silver. Trump is appealing to the people to stand for the good of America. He needs WTP to stand with him in his quest to win & Make America Great Again. DeSantis is putting aside his differences to work with the government leaders, who are trying to destroy America as we know it - and to destroy Trump because he is trying to save her. Evidence? He is conferring with them & taking money and advice from them. If Trump doesn’t win WE, the people, don’t win. It’s as simple as that. Evidence. Past is prologue. DeSantis has made Trump our (America’s) only choice by his actions. He could have joined with Trump to MAGA, and taken the mantle of leadership with more experience & power in 2028. He is either likeminded with the GOPe, or a coward when it comes to defending America against their complicity with the “fundamental transformation” of our country. Communism is a rejection of God. That is the antithesis of the foundational principles of America. The true colors of the actors and resulting consequences of the choices are becoming clearer every day. Blinders won’t stop the truth, or the consequences of not standing for it. I can’t speak for anyone other than myself. But, “As for me…”.

You know what President Trump's weakness has been? His displaced sense of loyalty. He trusted Kemp; he supported and helped Kemp win the governorship the first time around and this is the thanks he gets; a stab in the back. No wonder Harry Truman said if you want a friend in D.C., get a dog. Gov. Kemp is a snake and so is his Sec. of State Rats-insburgler. It makes me wonder, does politics make people snakes, or do snakes go into politics? There sure are a lot of snakes in both parties. If I were God, there would be a good old house cleaning (and burning) and I would start over with a new generation of politicians. Maranatha, when translated means, Come, Lord Jesus.

It's more than obvious that there are strange alliances in partisan politics that defy simple explanations. While I don't know Brian Kemp from Adam, if there really is a pervasive, all-powerful Uniparty, then why do Sundance and GWP's Jim Hoft spend so many words, in a supermajority of their articles, trying to destroy the GOP? They wouldn't be so "invested" if there was no difference between the two. Given his own political history, I wish one of Trump's most faithful would get him on the record as to why, besides the fact that Obama had locked up the democrat vote for at least the following 8 years, he left the democrat party in 2009 and came out as a GOP candidate in 2015, and whether or not he thinks there is no appreciable difference between the two parties in 2023. As far as I know, Trump never since addressed his 2004 televised interview where he definitively stated, "“In many cases, I probably identify more as Democrat...It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans." He followed that up by a statement on Hillary Clinton's foreign policy expertise, as she tried to give away the farm in negotiations with Iran, “Hillary’s always surrounded herself with very good people. I think Hillary would do a good job." Another way to frame the issue/question would be, why do democrats need to commit massive voter fraud if the Republicans are going to advance the causes of progressivism, albeit a little more slowly than the all-in socialists/communists that currently steer the democrat party? Along the same vein, why do the democrats pursue lawfare against Trump, since he's never been an evangelist of conservatism, as was Reagan in the decades before being elected to the WH, and since Trump managed to populate his administration with full-blown, back-stabbing progressives who are salivating over their coming opportunity to twist the knife? But the faithful will claim for example, "It's not his fault. Christie made him pick Barr as AG." Of course there is no explanation why Trump would listen to Christie or take his advice in the first place outside of their senior membership in the NY-NJ establishment. I've lost track on the story of who made Trump pick Wray to head the FBI. Yet, CTH and GWP continue to march DeSantis to a political gallows, even as Trump is the odds-on favorite by a wide margin.

If Trump didn’t prove his loyalty to the country over ANY Party during his term as POTUS despite the concerted efforts of members of both Parties (plus a few Independents) to thwart his success, then it’s certain that nothing anyone could say - including Trump himself - would convince any skeptics of that loyalty.

The assembling of a compelling and fair response to an infectious viral outbreak is an immense challenge. Ideally, unbiased experts without conflicts of interest develop a survey of potentially effective remedies. The team includes seasoned pathologists, broad-thinking social psychologists, experienced epidemiologists, holistic dieticians, and veteran practitioners of complementary and indigenous medicine. Imagine a broadly trusted, well-meaning group gathering knowledge, and through consensus, generating recommendations and medical guidelines designed to have the greatest impact towards minimizing suffering. In making the best efforts to evaluate solutions and means of relief, they never lose sight of weighing risks versus benefits. This did not happen.

During the inferno that devastated part of the island of Maui, wiping entire towns off the map and possibly killing more than a thousand people (once a full assessment can be made), people on Maui begged state officials to allow West Maui stream water to be diverted to fill up reservoirs for firefighting. That request went to M. Kaleo Manuel, Deputy Director of Hawaii's Commission on Water Resource Management, and he delayed approval of that water for five hours - five hours in which the once-contained fire exploded. By the time the approval was received, workers were unable to reach the siphon release so that the water could be diverted.

A storm brewing off Mexico’s Pacific coast and threatening Southern California and the southwestern U.S. was upgraded Thursday morning to hurricane strength. Forecasters warn that it’s still too soon to confirm when — or if — Hurricane Hilary might make landfall, and how strong the system could become. But current projections show it could reach the Baja California peninsula by late Sunday, potentially bringing significant rain, rough surf and dangerous winds. “There’s a lot of uncertainty with the storm track and the intensity of the storm, but we will likely see some impacts,” said Eric Boldt, the warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

As difficult as it is to run an independent media outlet, there’s a company making it substantially harder. Its name is NewsGuard. The company claims to rate online content, including from media outlets, for trustworthiness, but a closer look shows it does much more than that—its business model produces censorious pressure on news organizations. An investigation by The Epoch Times has revealed troubling questions regarding the quality of and the agenda behind NewsGuard’s offerings. Founded in 2018, NewsGuard dispatches its “analysts” to prepare reviews of online content creators and to issue ratings “to help readers have more context for the news they read online.”

And doing so while overtly flaunting their egregious actions to protect and cover-up for the incumbent president who has been exposed as potentially complicit in massive bribery and fraud. In any previous election cycle, these overt and unabashed actions would have been the death knell for the incumbent president’s campaign and his party.

We’ll vote straight red down ballot to make sure we control Congress to keep Biden in check for 4 more years,” Mitchell wrote. “But Trump will NEVER be president again.”
