    Lies? Which ones? Other than that though, it’s a fair metaphor: Georgia has gone rotten, and the scavengers are picking away at the rotten spots.

    GA is just one of several states with Republican legislatures passing measures to suppress voting. How truly sad and pathetic that no evidence has been presented that illegal voting occurred in 2020 yet these states feel it necessary to deprive U.S. citizens of their most basic rights to vote.

    I’m told I don’t know what the law says by the racists who love it. The fact that people wait in line so long they need food and water is all I need to know.

    What lies? That reducing the window for requesting mail-in ballots makes it harder for inner city folk to vote when they face a 6 hour wait at the polls?

    The far right keeps telling us that the Georgia bill does not say what everyone thinks it says, but never tells us what it does say in their interpretation.

    What WOULD protect the Georgia Peach is integrity, not dishonesty; decency, not underhandedness; righteousness, not unscrupulousness; truthfulness, not venality; probity, not disgracefulness.

    The GOP Leadershit in Georgia, as spearheaded by Governor Brian Kemp, shamelessly employs only dishonesty, underhandedness, unscrupulousness, venality, and disgracefulness in its wanton, deceitful, furtive, and wicked drive to resurrect Georgia’s ante-bellum racism, nativism, and jingoism.

    Georgia is not unique in this respect. State legislators have submitted more than 361-and-counting Voter Suppression Bills in legislatures nationwide. We’re in the midst of a national racist, nativist, jingoist juggernaut, the length, depth, and breadth of which we cannot comprehend or condone. If we value our democracy, our republic, our nation—our heritage—we must cleanse our society of this lethal curse.

    If you’re interested in what your state is up to, consult the Brennan Center for Justice (https://www.brennancenter.org/search/?q=voter%20suppression&) for details.

    Bless her heart. I guess she loves the idea of her vote meaning nothing. Maybe she hopes she will be the official “historian” of the coming autocracy.

    Mitch McConnell has said that it’s “stupid” for corporations to speak out on politics, referring to the outcry and backlash of the “new” Georgia Voting Law. Since the Right has been bellyaching about “cancel culture” and “free speech,” isn’t that a bit contradictory? Especially since the offending corporations are headquartered in Georgia, and such laws directly affect their employees. I suppose what he means is that corporations should just quietly continue political contributions, but keep their mouths shut about the activities of those who benefit from said contributions.

    As usual, unintentionally ironic. Georgia’s electoral wrangling is an example of the fruit of the poisonous tree. It’s the Republicans response to trumps losing the popular vote there, and his inability to reverse the outcome through political chicanery.

    A few days ago I listened to a Texas senator in an interview on NPR, insisting that the voter repression law they just passed is perfectly fair to everyone. He made a point of saying that they want every “qualified” voter to vote – specifying not every registered voter. And who decides if someone is a qualified voter? Why the new legal arrangement where the legislature can replace voting officials in any district they please, who can then change the outcome of elections if they don’t like them. So Republican-selected voting officials decide who is qualified to vote. Sure, this decision-making could be applied to everyone, but of course it will be applied to districts with high numbers of people of color or “un-American” names, or any style of Democrat, disqualifying them and removing them from the voting rolls, or perhaps just tossing their votes. You can bet they won’t be notified they’ve been disqualified, if at all, until the day before any given election. More than half the states are passing similar laws, including Georgia – pretty much all the ones with Republican legislatures. It makes me physically ill.

    Alleged White Supremacist Stephen Miller Will Try To Use The Courts To Challenge Non-Racist Polices

    Stephen Miller, who served as one of former President Donald Trump’s senior advisers and was the chief architect behind the administration’s hardline immigration policies, has launched America First Legal (AFL), a conservative group designed to challenge Democratic policies in court.

    “For too long, conservative and traditionalist Americans have been outflanked, outspent, out-organized, and outmaneuvered by radical progressive legal organizations. It has been a years-long, one-sided legal assault. The consequences for American values, American society, and the American Constitution have been tragic and profound,” Miller said in a statement.

    Rep. Matt Gaetz to Speak at ‘Women For America First’ Event at Trump Doral on Friday

    Republican Florida Representative Matt Gaetz will speak at the Save America Summit, a “Women for America First” event. The event will occur at the Trump National Doral Miami, a Florida golf resort associated with former President Donald Trump.

    The summit’s main topics will include election integrity, big tech and censorship, protecting the 1st and 2nd Amendments, furthering “America First” policies as well as defeating the “radical” agenda of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, according to the event’s website.

    “Rep Matt Gaetz has been a fearless leader in DC. Few members of Congress have been more willing than Matt to stand up & fight on behalf of President Trump & his America First Agenda,” Women for America First wrote in a Tuesday evening tweet.

    If a boycott, divest, and sanctions movement is OK for the U.S. state of Georgia for alleged human rights violations, does that mean it is also OK for the state of Israel for their alleged human rights violations?

    It’s no mystery why the voting bills were passed in GA. On Election night 2020, Biden won GA (the first Democratic candidate to carry that state since Bill Clinton in 1992). The following January, both Democratic Senate candidate won the run off election. And GA’s Republican Governor, Brian Kemp, and the GOP controlled statehouse said, “Georgia’s turning blue? Not on our watch!” So, if hitting GA in the pocketbook by moving the All Star Game and losing support from companies like Coca Cola and Delta won’t set them straight, then the Senate passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act definitely will! Here’s hoping the act will get passed before next year’s midterms and the Democrats expand their majorities in the House and Senate and Gov. Kemp will be shown the door!
