Georgia Governor’s Race Not Over Yet as Dem Refuses to Concede

Stacy Abrams is making it very difficult for Georgians to move forward on Wednesday.

The main story of the American midterm elections of 2018 has been written, and it goes a little something like this:

Democrats predictably snagged the House while republicans kept the Senate, meaning that Donald Trump will have some uphill battles to face in doing forward with his stated agenda.

But not every storyline from Tuesday has been wrapped up neatly with a bow.  Take Georgia’s gubernatorial contest for instance, where democratic nominee Stacy Abrams has declined to concede, believing that the election will be subject to a December runoff.

Early Wednesday morning, Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams refused to concede to Republican challenger Brian Kemp.

“Votes remain to be counted. There are voices that were waiting to be heard,” Abrams said before a crowd of supporters. “Across our state, folks are opening up the dreams of voters in absentee ballots and we believe our chance for a stronger Georgia is just within reach. But we cannot seize it until all voices are heard. And I promise you tonight we are going to make sure that every vote is counted – every single vote.”

Just how far off is Abrams?

As Abrams gave her speech, NBC News reported on screen that with 99% of precincts reporting, the gubernatorial hopeful was down by 115,362 votes, or approximately 3%.

According to The New York Times, with 100% of precincts reporting as of publication, Abrams still trails Kemp by 94,468 votes, or approximately 2.5%.

Georgia state law dictates that if no candidate receives a majority of votes, the top two candidates enter into a runoff election. According to NBC News, such a runoff would take place on December 4.

Abrams’ opponent Brian Kemp is the current Secretary of State in the state of Georgia, with his office being responsible for electoral oversight in The Peach State.  This fact has added an unnecessary amount of drama to the proceedings, with Abrams doing little to shore up voter confidence in Kemp’s staff to remain neutral in the election.

Powerful Moment As Hundreds of Jews Take to NYC Streets & Demand ‘OMAR MUST GO!’ (Watch)

WOW!

To say Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is a friend of the Jews is like admitting Alec Baldwin does a good Trump impersonation on “Saturday Night Live.” It’s just not true, no matter how anyone attempts to spin it. In New York City, hundreds of Jews took to the streets to protest the embattled Congresswoman. Here’s the scoop… From Daily Wire: Hundreds of Jews gathered in Times Square in New York City on Monday evening to protest anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and chanted, “Omar must go!” “Following the highly-publicized allegations of the Minnesotan congresswoman’s antisemitism and her statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and billboard launch calling for her removal,” The Jerusalem Post reported. “Speakers at the event included former Democratic New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind and award-winning advocate of Christian Zionism Laurie Cardoza-Moore.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/HikindDov/status/1130940516810526720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130940516810526720&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47516%2Fomar-must-go-hundreds-jews-gather-protest-ilhan-ryan-saavedra ANOTHER: https://twitter.com/HikindDov/status/1130583678545944577?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130583678545944577&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47516%2Fomar-must-go-hundreds-jews-gather-protest-ilhan-ryan-saavedra Apparently, Omar has been holding secret fundraisers with Islamic groups that are tied to terror. Makes you wonder, was Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro right when she said Omar wasn’t “America first?” Food for thought, at the very least. From Free Beacon: Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view. […] Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an…

Cruz Calls Out Carrey For Vile Abortion Painting, So Jim Reveals Another Painting Aimed At Ted

Jim Carrey must have A LOT of free time, these days.

After Republican Governor Kay Ivey signed Alabama’s strict new abortion bill into law, far-left radical Jim Carrey went berserk. He chooses, these days, to lash out via his paintings. Maybe he’s still upset he hasn’t had a hit film in years? Here’s the painting featuring Ivey being aborted from a tube sucking out her brain: I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama. https://twitter.com/JimCarrey/status/1129796511611490304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129796511611490304&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F05%2F18%2Fpeople-are-loving-jim-carreys-graphic-painting-of-alabama-gov-kay-ivey-being-aborted%2F Texas Senator Ted Cruz let Jim know how he felt about the painting… This is not OK. Today’s Left: vicious, angry & consumed by hate. Instead of insults & dehumanizing rage, we should return to civility. I disagree w/ Carrey’s politics, but believe we should respect his humanity nonetheless. I wish he could reciprocate. #LoveIsStrongerThanHate https://twitter.com/tedcruz/status/1130515866712518656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130515866712518656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjim-carrey-has-unhinged-response-to-ted-cruz-after-insane-abortion-post%2F Carrey fired back at Ted with a new painting: https://twitter.com/JimCarrey/status/1130943200426745856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130943200426745856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjim-carrey-has-unhinged-response-to-ted-cruz-after-insane-abortion-post%2F Here’s what it says: “Some greasy Joe McCarthy wanna-be, who is shameless and will remain nameless, was lecturing me in the press about morality and civility after spending years in the Senate defending the rights of mass murderers to own AR-15s with which they massacre innocent children in their classrooms.” “I thought I must be dreaming, but I haven’t woken up yet,” Carrey continued. “I guess this hypocrisy is the new American Dream.” Jim must have a lot of free time these days. Back in November 2018, Carrey sent a tweet featuring one of his paintings showing support for then-Texas Democrat Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke (D). It was meant to disparage Cruz. Carrey failed in his attempt and Cruz fired back with the kill shot.
