The Devil Went Down to Georgia – UPDATE: Handel has won!

First I’d like to personally thank the 21 people who voted for us in the PCPs Paul Revere Award nominations that ended Saturday. Unfortunately, it has gained so much attention since its inception that the number of nominees has greatly increased. This year’s top vote getter with more than 1,000 votes was Last Refuge; that’s Sundance’s Conservative Treehouse. There’s no accounting for taste, I guess.

I spent a wonderful morning yesterday fishing a local lake with RJ and my best fishing buddy of more than 20 years. We did well and brought a dozen big bluegills to the dock. My friend has a freezer full of fish, as do I. There was an old man sitting on the bank who only had one, so we gave them to him. Made his day. Spending time on the water with my friend and my grandson made mine.

This is judgement day. The most expensive congressional race, with more than $50 million poured into it, will come to an end. Carpetbagging Jon Ossoff is trying to buy the seat in GA-6 that has been republican for more than 40 years. The democrats are desperately seeking some sort of win since the drubbing they took last year. The polls show the contest being very close. If this is what a House seat costs, they’ll need about 10 trillion to get a majority next year.

Why all eyes are on Georgia’s Special Election

High Stakes Special Election In Georgia House Race Between Jon Osoff And Karen Handel

Trump’s agenda on the line in a hard-fought Georgia House race
One low point came in the final days of the race, with a super PAC attack ad that showed footage of a bloodied House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) being taken off a baseball field on a stretcher after last Wednesday’s shooting in suburban Washington.As the sound of gunshots echoes, a narrator says: “The unhinged left is endorsing and applauding shooting Republicans. When will it stop? It won’t if Jon Ossoff wins on Tuesday.”
Both candidates have denounced the ad.

Ga. Dem. Has Nine Times More Donations from California than His Home State
The fundraising totals underscore Trump’s “Hollywood vs. Georgia” characterization. In total, Ossoff’s campaign raised $15 million between March 29 and May 31, for a fundraising total of $23 million, making this the most expensive House race in American history.

Jon Ossoff appears on MSNBC’s ‘Velshi & Ruhle’

Ossoff Bans Conservative Media Outlet From Campaign Event

Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign banned a conservative media outlet, the Washington Free Beacon, from a campaign event the night before Ossoff is set to face off against Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s congressional Sixth District special election.
Scher told TheDC that the campaign event was filled with reporters from other news organizations. The Free Beacon, it seems, was singled out for special treatment.
The campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.

Jon Ossoff: Voters Don’t Care That I Don’t Live In The District

Jon Ossoff, the Democratic candidate in the GA-06 special congressional election, is still struggling to properly explain why he doesn’t currently live in the district.
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked Ossoff why he doesn’t just move to the district if it could potentially help him win.
“It’s very easy to solve where you live,” Ruhle said. “While people respect you across the board, your desire to support your fiancee…with every point counting, why not just move?”
“Well, Steph, voters just aren’t asking me this question,” Ossoff replied. “Voters are asking me what I’m going to do to improve our local economy.”

Canvassers Unsure How to Handle Questions About Ossoff Living Outside the District

After a few minutes wallowing in this toxic waste I’m ready to call it a day already. There’s a lot going on, so I’ll be brief.

    Dick Morris: Make No Mistake, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller Is Determined To ‘Bring Trump Down’

    Mueller is out to sink Trump. One way he’ll do it is get Trump for something that has NOTHING to do with the original investigation, Morris said.

    Much like when Scooter Libby was charged with Obstruction of Justice, not for anything to do with Valerie Plame, but for lying to investigators. Morris says it will be just the same with Mueller’s investigation of Trump

    Robert Mueller will try to get Trump for something that occurs during the course of the investigation. “Procedural crimes.”

    Morris calls it ‘investigating the investigation’ and believes he will ‘find something’ to prosecute Trump for that has nothing to do with the Russia probe.

    Gingrich On Russian Investigation: ‘The Fix Is In’

    The fix is in,” Gingrich told TheDCNF. “This is the establishment counter-attacking legally when they lost politically.”

    Gingrich is specifically concerned about the fact that employees at Mueller’s ex-law firm, WilmerHale, gave $326,798 to Hillary Clinton in the run up to the 2016 presidential election, compared to the $628 that employees donated to Trump.

    Democrats Block Witnesses from Testifying in House Intel Probe

    Congressional officials said one of the key witnesses, former informal adviser to the Trump campaign Carter Page, was scheduled to testify at a closed hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

    But Democrats on the committee blocked the testimony, asserting they needed more time to prepare.

    Judicial Watch: Susan Rice ‘Unmasking’ Documents Moved from NSC to Obama Library

    The National Security Council cannot hand over records relating to former National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s surveillance of Americans, because they have been moved to the Obama presidential library and may be sealed for as many as five years, conservative watchdog Judicial Watch announced Monday.
    Prosecutors, Congress, and the public will want to know when the National Security Council shipped off the records about potential intelligence abuses by the Susan Rice and others in the Obama White House to the memory hole of the Obama Presidential Library. We are considering our legal options but we hope that the Special Counsel and Congress also consider their options and get these records.

    Tucker Carlson Takes On Dem Strategist Who Started ‘Hunt Republicans’ Hashtag
    Crazy train, and this guy has worked as strategist for Democrats and even ran for Mayor of Rahway, New Jersey.

    By the way, he also was arrested for shoplifting fairly recently so the guy is not all there.

    Michelle Obama holds fitness ‘bootcamps’ for friends

    “When I was at the White House, I often hosted bootcamp weekends for my close girlfriends,” Obama, 53, wrote. “It didn’t matter that we were all at varying fitness levels. Our bootcamp weekends were a reminder that if we want to keep taking care of others, we need to take care of ourselves first.”

    Murder Of Muslim Girl In Virginia Thought To Be ‘Road Rage’ Act, Not Hate Crime…

    The death of a Muslim teen who was assaulted after she left a mosque early Sunday morning was the result of ‘road rage’ with no indications of a hate crime, police said.

    Darwin Martinez Torres, 22, appeared in court on Monday to face a murder charge after he got into a dispute with the 17-year-old Nabra Hussein and a group of her friends in Sterling, North Virginia, the Fairfax County Police Department said.

    Martinez got out of the car, assaulted the girl, and beat her with a metal baseball bat, her mother said. Police later found a body believed to be Hussein’s in a Sterling pond about 25 miles outside of Washington DC.

    3 University of Albany Students Who Faked Hate Crime Get Probation

    Three African-American University at Albany students who allegedly falsely reported a hate crime have now been given probation and community service.

    Former students Asha Burwell and Ariel Agudio are the final two to face sentencing for the alleged false hate crime report. Both received three years of probation and 200 hours each of community service for the January 30, 2016, incident. The judge waived jail time saying that the pair had faced “significant consequences” already, according to Fox News.
    The so-called hate crime was whipped into a frenzy on the Albany campus and even sponsored the Twitter hashtag campaign, #DefendBlackGirlsUAlbany. At one point, NFL players and rap singers joined the activism to decry the attacks on the three students. Even Hillary Clinton jumped in to make political hay off the purported hate crime.

    Christian School Told They Can’t Teach “Offensive” Biblical Scripture…

    Evangelical Christians are under fire as an Alberta school board is demanding a Christian school stop teaching “offensive” scripture that indicts homosexuality as a sin, the National Post reports.

    The offending passage is from 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, which states: “Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
