The State of Georgia is locked in one of its wildest gubernatorial races in modern history, as democrat Stacey Abrams looks to make history against Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

The race for the governorship has been a turbulent one for both candidates.  Abrams, if elected, would be the first ever female African American governor in our nation’s history, and has had the likes of Oprah and Will Ferrell spending time in the deep south to assist with her campaigning.

Kemp, on the other hand, found controversy by releasing a number of campaign advertisements that seem to play down to the far, far right of the Georgia GOP base, even going so far as to suggest that he would round up illegal immigrants in his personal vehicle.

To say that it’s been a strange contest would be understating it immensely.

Now, Abrams has let fly her latest attack on the Second Amendment – something that could come back to haunt her in Georgia.

She was a guest on The View, and host Meghan McCain noted, “You have been endorsed by Everytown, which is an anti-gun organization–Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group as well. You say you’re proud of your F rating from the NRA. Michael Bloomberg and others like him support taking the AR-15–which is the most popular rifle in America–away from people. Do you, like Everytown, support banning the AR-15?”

Abrams responded by quickly claiming she is not “anti-gun,” then laying out many of the gun controls she wants to put in place: “I believe in a background check. I believe in a three-day waiting period. I believe that those who commit domestic violence and stalking should not have access to weapons.”

She then described AR-15s as “weapons of mass destruction” and made clear her position that they should be banned from civilian ownership…

Georgia has long been considered an easy win for the republicans in general elections, but the possibility of the Peach State as a battleground locale has emerged in recent years due to the blossoming population of Atlanta, whose population tends to skew heavy toward the democrats.

In rural areas, Abrams’ AR-15 schtick certainly will not fly, but is there enough support within the capital city’s limits to push her over the top?  And, if so, will Georgia succumb to the same fate as New York and California, whose political maneuvers are wholly telegraphed from their most populous and liberal locales?

We will find out on Tuesday.

All the News That’s Fit to Fud

In the U.S., the mainstream press continues to perpetrate the lie that they offer an objective, balanced view of what’s happening in the world. They continue to do this because, sadly, enough fools buy what they say lock, stock, and barrel.

New york Times

The New York Times has ignored dozens of potential stories on Joe Biden’s bumbling and on Hunter Biden’s laptop, drug abuse, sexual escapades, virulent racism, pay-for-play schemes, and shady deals. Any Trump offspring involved in 1% of Hunter’s transgressions would yield virtually endless coverage in the Times. Terror at the Top In 90 years has anything changed at the New York Times? In 1932 and 1933, the Times deliberately buried the story known as the ‘Terror-Famine,’ that astoundingly killed at least 3.9 million Ukrainians, but by some estimates perhaps as many as 7.0 million: At least one out of every eight people, and possibly as much as one out of every four people.  Times editors were well aware that the famine was orchestrated by Joseph Stalin who forbade outside food and aid shipments, confiscated household food items, and restricted of the mobility of Ukranian citizens. Why did Stalin do this to a region known as “the world’s breadbasket”?  He sought to punish independence-minded Ukrainians, quash anyone who represented a threat to his totalitarian government, and vanquish Ukraine’s small farms in favor of Soviet state-run collectives. Stalin lost no sleep over the legions of emaciated bodies, near death, scratching for any morsel of food they could find. ‘Mainstream’ and Maniacal The New York Times chose to bury this heart-wrenching, world-shaking story. Then, as now, their leftist bent was so intense and so all-encompassing that they couldn’t help themselves. The blunt truth is that they do not care who is hurt as long as socialist/Marxist/communist ideology prevails on earth. Propping up the Biden Administration is automatic.  One hundred years from now, is it realistic to believe that the facades which the mainstream media perpetrates daily on Americans and on free people around the globe will not continue to dominate?  By some chance,…
