Big Egos Changed Georgia’s Political Landscape

It can no longer be ignored that all politics are truly local. With a Republican Governor, Assembly, and Senate, Georgia has a two-year window to get redistricting done if there’s any hope of continuing the fight. Egos are the worst enemy of any political party. Former Senator Johnny Isakson’s ego started the problem by not quitting the Senate when his disease was first manifest, hanging on to the last minute. It was no secret; everybody knew a problem existed.

When Johnny quit, Governor Kemp faced a quandary, who to appoint to fill the short six months remaining of his term. Egos again! Rep Doug Collins (Ga-9), who was slowly tarnishing his conservative voting record (75%) by joining the GOP elite House leadership, decided he should be Johnny’s replacement, and he threw it all away to go after it. I don’t fault Doug for pursuing his ambitions, but it really wasn’t a well thought out plan. The governor didn’t want him for some reason; he couldn’t accept.

For some other reason absolutely unknown to most Georgians, Gov Kemp selected a very wealthy woman no one ever heard of, Kelly Loeffler, to fill the post, Doug Collins became, in an instant, Gov Kemp’s enemy so to speak, and that divided the Georgia Republican Party.   

So, what is the GOP’s main quandary? It has to be a change in tactics. We can no longer view politics through past eyes. The Marxists are sweeping the board because they do not play by the rules, and we do, and they’ve brought enough weakling GOP’ers to their way of thinking to tilt the board in their favor. We must keep the peace, don’t you agree? The Constitution means nothing to American Marxists unless it supports their political position. 

It would be instructive to know why Kemp really selected Kelly Loeffler. Money? In her unremarkable six months, she did have a 100% conservative voting record. Still, nothing really to overcome her Democrat opponent, the Marxist, Raphael Warnock, except the Georgia Dems worked hard to get the black vote, and we didn’t! Now, look where that’s got us. 

Governor Kemp’s action in the National Election places him in the “Never Trump” column and his re-election, even from this distance in time, looks doubtful.

What Conservative today, black or white, can stand up to the remarkable achievement of the sure-fire Democrat choice for Governor in 2024, Stacy Abrams? Who do we have? Doug Collins, because he wants that too? Maybe, but I don’t really think so; too many hard feelings within the ranks.

Under Trump, the GOP had remarkable success in selling the American dream to some astute, politically savvy, industrious Black leaders, including pastors, actually to sway the vote. Trump won! In Georgia, many were seen in the political ads that swamped our TV’s up to the January run-off election in support of both Republican candidates. The Georgia GOP also has some outstanding black leaders who could fill the role of challenging Stacy Abrams. Sad that Herman Cain is no longer with us, but that shouldn’t stop our search. 

For Conservatives out here, can you think of any old Republican that can run for governor and win? Maybe, but we must also turn our eyes to the growing bevy of Young Republicans now entering the ranks as active conservatives bearing the Republican label. That won’t last if the geriatric establishment does not support them. We now have two Republican party’s, Trump’s and the other one. Up here in Ellijay, Ga., political activist Joe McCutchen is mentoring an outstanding group of young conservatives in his leadership course. County parties everywhere should follow his example and organize those youths eager to make America great again.

Remember, freedom is the goal; the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!

George McClellan

George G. McClellan, a California native, was a Regular Army veteran and served a post-war Korea tour. His post-army professional career covered 43 years in law enforcement, including the California Highway Patrol and the US Naval Investigative Service (NCIS). With the latter, he became a world traveler visiting and working in many countries from the Philippine Islands to the United Kingdom, Asia, the Middle-East, Bosnia, Europe, Russia, and India. He retired from the NIS at Naval Air Station, Atlanta, Ga., and has remained in the north Georgia area since 1990 as a co-owner of a Security Consulting company. He earned a Certified Protectional Professional (CPP) certification from the American Society for Industrial Security and a Fraud Examiner Certification (CFE).

He has published a historical biography on a namesake, a John Jacob Astor Fur Company member who explored a route west and back, after Lewis and Clark. Early American history, Celtic influence on America, and conservative politics remain his greatest interests. He is also a bagpiper since 1975. He and his wife, since 1965, now resides in Gilmer County, Ga.

America 2.0 – Rule of the Hard Left

America 2.0 – Rule of the Hard Left

Between climate alarmism, economic activism, and Critical Race Theory, the hard left is attacking our country on three fronts: morally, economically, and structurally. If we do not give power to the hard left, we are told that the planet will become uninhabitable, and everyone on it will die. That is a moral argument for communism. The word ‘suicide’ covers the platform of the hard left, and since the growth in the Democratic Party is all on the hard left, that is…

China’s Invitation to World War III

China’s Invitation to World War III

China is a predator. And it is preparing to devour the world. Xi calls this peaceful and civilized. His vision is to command the world and impose the CCP’s brutal form of communism on the world’s nations, regardless of the destruction they leave behind. For China, it is all about power. The Lion has “awoken,” and it is time for the Eagle to enter the fight…

Liz Cheney is Out, But Elise Stefanik Could Be Even Worse

Liz Cheney is Out, But Elise Stefanik Could Be Even Worse

In “2016, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., was one of a handful of prominent Republicans to skip the GOP convention in Ohio and later refused to mention former President Donald Trump’s name when asked if she would vote for him.” That was after having “initially endorsed and voted for former Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the 2016 GOP presidential primary”. That’s major, don’t you think? And there’s much more…

We Should Not Regulate or Tax CO2, Companies Should Produce More!

We Should Not Regulate or Tax CO2, Companies Should Produce More!

President Biden’s “goals to create a carbon pollution-free [Nineteen Eighty-Four ‘Newspeak’ code for carbon dioxide] power sector by 2035 and net-zero emissions economy by no later than 2050” is irresponsible and dangerous. It is crazy that we are even debating the idea of limiting C02 at a huge cost to society when we should actually be promoting more CO2…

Corruption, Coverup, Criminal Indictments: What’s wrong with this picture?

Corruption, Coverup, Criminal Indictments: What’s wrong with this picture?

In December 2020, AG Barr granted special council status to Durham under a presumption that this would provide him some protection from interference in continuing the politically explosive probe after then-President-elect Biden took office in January. We might safely bet that Biden’s AG, Merrick Garland, will be under pressure to shut down Durham before he can issue an embarrassing report or criminal indictments…

How the Dysfunctional Woke Are Ruining America

How the Dysfunctional Woke Are Ruining America

There was no sexual exploitation, darkness, or ugly, lusty desire in the prince’s offer of a kiss to the woman he loved. There was purity, innocence, respect, and love in the gesture. Things that seem to be obviously missing in the woke Cancel Culture. The angry, troubled and woke Katie Dowd’s of this world grasp out to find something negative about everything. Then they “project” from their miserable lives upon us…

Governor Newsom’s Attacks on Churches Get Their Day in the Supreme Court

Governor Newsom’s Attacks on Churches Get Their Day in the Supreme Court

Three of those nine justices are more than happy to have officials in the State of California trash free speech, and freedom of religion, liberty, and property rights, simply because someone they deem an expert tells them it’s okay. Forget rights, forget the rule of law; this is the exercise of tyrannical power, and a foreshadowing of what America will look like in a few years if We the People don’t stand up and regain control of our public servants…

Soros, ANTIFA, BLM, and AMERICA. Whose Side Are You On?

Soros, ANTIFA, BLM, and AMERICA. Whose Side Are You On?

Soros paid huge campaign contributions to Katie Hobbs, the Arizona Secretary of State, and to Paul Penzone, the Sheriff of Maricopa County. Soros didn’t do it because he’s a nice guy. Soros has other motivations and objectives. Katie Hobbs and Paul Penzone are not just recipients of money from a benefactor, but by accepting Soros’ money, they are expected by Soros to…

Who Should Lead the GOP?

Who Should Lead the GOP?

Cheney said: “We Republicans need to stand for genuinely conservative principles and steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic Trump cult of personality.” Except under Trump, when was the last time the GOP even considered genuine conservative principles? When she say’s “steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic…,” she is echoing the Left’s talking points that lead to socialism…

An Open Letter on Critical Race Theory to Gov. DeSantis and Comm’r of Education Corcoran

An Open Letter on Critical Race Theory to Gov. DeSantis and Comm’r of Education Corcoran

An honest, academic, traditional American education is the most important gift we can give our children. A moratorium must be immediately declared to stop all 67 counties from purchasing materials that embrace Critical Race Theory, 1619 Project, and BLM Marxist materials. We should be embracing original sources and truly classical content…
