  2. I really find it hard to believe that Republicans don’t win the Georgia 6th district. Looking at the presidential election results vs. the congressional results, there were over 30,000 voters in the district who voted for tom price, but didn’t vote for Trump. The numbers work out that most of these 30,000 voters went to Hillary. These are establishment voters through and through. Look at the results with Price…it wasn’t even close against the Dem who ran. Republicans just have to show up and vote.

    • One thing I’ve noticed in my 30+ of working in politics; Dems are great at demonstrating, chaos, burning their cities, assaulting their opposition but when it comes down to voting on election day, they just can’t make it into the polling places like Reps………unless of course the party’s leaders pay them to get on a bus from another district, give them breakfast, lunch and dinner and their favorite vice…..
      IMHO.

      Handel should win. But… Never under estimate the stupidity of a brainwashed electorate.

      Between the AJC, Atlanta Local TV News outlets, CNN, PMSNBC painting Trump and Republicans as everything evil under the sun including painting all of us as being the sons and daughters of Satan anything could happen.

      I still expect Handel to win.

      This is a stat many don’t or can’t comprehend and I post it often. People are seriously misguided on who voted for our President and Why…The Republican Party under Trump is no longer the Romney/McCain voter party…

        He received more votes in our district than did our GOP congressman by about 5%. Dems crossing over in our conservative Southern district. Talked to a number of Dems who said it was their first time ever voting R and many whose Parents Never voted R and “will turn over in their graves but gonna do it anyway”!

        I don’t see him getting a higher percentage then before, so no less the 52-48 Handle in my book…I could see two percent though…We all know the reason the party in power after an election loses seats and motivation is hard to beat.

    IRS Commissioner Koskinen should have been fired on January 21st! He is personally responsible for ordering the IRS to pay out billions of fraudulent tax refunds based on ID theft each year. Koskinen ordered the IRS to refuse to cooperate with local and federal law enforcement agencies investigating the fraud and helping beleaguered legitimate taxpayers. Koskinen also mandated that the IRS Criminal Investigation Division refuse to work cases involving less than $500,000 in fraud. A disgusted IRS CID special agent told me that Koskinen views the rampant refund fraud as…”just another welfare program!”

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Russia probe due to Jeff Sessions’ recusal, released a statement Thursday night:

    “Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials,’ particularly when they do not identify the country — let alone the branch or agency of government — with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated. Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations. The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.”

    Greg Jerret is on Hannity. He says Rosenstein needs to fire Muller and recuse himself from the SP investigation since he’s a witness. Conflicts of interest on all asides. Calls the whole thing ‘Theatre of the Absurd’

    My husband just reported to me that Pence has now hired an outside counsel. And now I’ve found the story.

    http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/338040-pence-hires-outside-lawyer-for-russia-probes

    Oh my heavens, I just started reading The Hill comments on this story. I don’t know if it’s a mass of ShareBlue trolls but they are all saying Pence is dirty, too, lock him up, the whole Republican party colluded, FBI raided some RNC in Maryland, etc.

    We better start seeing some serious offense! The MSM is taking the whole country down if nothing happens soon. We can’t keep playing defense on this!!

      That’s what I screamed at the Tv when Weasel Ryan was making his impassioned speech.

      “If they come for one of us, then they come for all of us.”

      Who is the “they” Paul?????? And now they’re all clamoring for individual protection? On one program, someone remarked, “these people often work late, and then walk home. They must be protected”

      Yea right./eye roll

    I just heard about this case
    Trial of Michelle Carter, Accused of Encouraging Suicide of Teen Boyfriend

    Michelle Carter, who is on trial for involuntary manslaughter for allegedly urging her boyfriend — via a series of chilling texts and phone calls — to kill himself in 2014.

    “What [Carter’s] defense team is team is trying to say is that texts are protected speech, and that, although this is a tragedy, they believe that it is not a crime,” Dennis explained in a clip from the show.

    Prosecutors countered that speech can be the basis for criminal charges and said Carter tried to cover her tracks, even asking Roy to delete her messages.

    Carter is charged with involuntary manslaughter and faces up to 20 years in prison.

    WTF is going on with our Country — up is down, down is up — She was found not guilty, after going to trial … but I am speechless unless I am missing something…

    Sarah Palinis considering suing the NYT for Libel. I like this idea. She’d be helping us all if she did this and succeeded.

    And unlike so many in the R. Party, Palin always was GOOD at standing up for We the People.

      NEW YORK, NY — In the course of the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, serious questions have been raised about the possibility that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch may have engaged in wrongdoing with regard to the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
      There are three main issues surrounding Lynch’s possible misdeeds in the Clinton email probe.

      One is Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting last June at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in which former President Bill Clinton, the husband of the FBI’s main subject in a criminal probe — Hillary’s email case — boarded the attorney general’s plane and reportedly stayed there for about thirty minutes for a private chat.

      The second concern is Lynch’s reported directive for then-FBI Director James Comey to publically refer to the FBI’s criminal investigation into Clinton’s email as a “matter” instead of an investigation or a criminal probe. The language matched the specific rhetoric used at the time by Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, which referred to the criminal investigation as a “matter.”

      The third issue relates to testimony and questions surrounding reports claiming that Comey was in possession of a document purportedly indicating that Lynch would ensure the Clinton email probe didn’t go too far.
