Democrat Stacey Abrams ended her bid to be Georgia governor late Friday in a speech which she said was not a ´concession´ but an acknowledgment that she cannot win. She said Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate, would win the vote count which was due to be certified at 5 p.m., just as she made the speech. But she ended her bid to be the nation´s first black female governor defiantly saying that she would be suing in federal court over the election´s ´gross mismanagement´, taking a bitter election with claims of racist voter suppression into a new arena.

"Voter suppression" means the Democrats couldn´t stuff enough extra fake ballots into the mix to steal the election from the rightful victor. Here it is, 2018, and the USA´s voting process remains a mockery.

Wow, talk about a total lack of CLASS!!!!!

I guess when you have spent your whole life on the Demon-RAT plantation -- where they have given you everything you could ever want (on the taxpayers´ dime) -- she really can´t understand why she wasn´t handed the governorship on a silver platter.

It MUST be racism!!!!! What ELSE could it possibly be?!?!?!?!? /sarcasm off

As a Georgian, I am appalled that such a manifestly unqualified person garnered so many votes. It´s genuinely frightening how ignorant so many voters are and what that indicates for the future not just of my state but of the country as well. Still, it´s good news that this is at last over and all we have to deal with now is what we always have to deal with these days.... cries of racism, RACISM, R A C I S M! Racism all the time, everywhere, explaining everything.

Sore-Loser Abrams used this CONCESSION speech to position herself for new political adventures, to delegitimize Kemp al-la Hillary-Clinton-style gibberish,
and to initiate a new "resistance" group to protest her "unfair" loss, said group likely organized by Obama with Soros money. And like Obama, it´s much easier to be articulate-when-being-disingenuous when you use a teleprompter. All this BS from a representative of a corrupt party who blithely tried to torpedo Kavanaugh with fabricated evidence just like they tried to torpedo Trump with fabricated evidence. As such, Democrats are enemies of America-as-we-know-it..

This is just an observation, but the African American Democrats involved in the races in Florida and Georgia have set back race relations in the United States at least 50 years. They have proven to be childishly petulant and offensive. I am talking about Abrams, Gillium and Snipes. Angry, stupid and bitter is no way to go through life.

Stacy had finally lost the will to resist the forceful maleness of Brian Kemp. “You’ve won,” she said pulling off her tight sweater, “go ahead and claim your prize.”
“I already did that a week ago, dumpling cheeks. You were just too childish and stupid to accept it... and how about putting your clothes on, you’re grossing me out.”

Voter suppression but record voter registration. Dems, in the face of hard reality, continue to assert lies. Every time voter ID laws are passed, they claim it will/has reduced votes. Then they actually tally how many have voted and find out the participation actually INCREASED! That never stops them. They blatantly lie.

Please #24. Over half our state voted against Abrams. My county alone voted over 73% for Kemp. I was surprised that she even made it this close. We have a good voter ID law in Georgia. It’s probably ignored by the blacks running the election in Fulton and Dekalb County (Atlanta area) and it would not surprise me if there weren’t thousand of illegal votes done there. Maybe with our current POTUS and AG this farce will be investigated and the cheaters sent to prison..oh...wait, the election officials are black. Forget it.

I worked for many years for a non-profit government agency. We were housed in an old elementary school. Our gym was a voting precinct. We were located in a ghettoish area. I watched people working there go in the booth with many, many people and vote for them. I´m pretty sure this has been happening for decades and no one is being suppressed. Sounds like a good excuse for losing, tho. Who is she sueing?

More than 300 parents and children gathered outside of a primary school yesterday to protest against lessons on homosexuality and gender. Some Muslim demonstrators said they would rather leave the UK than allow their children to continue attending Parkfield Community School in Birmingham. Pupils were kept out of lessons for the first hour of the day. Some joined in with the chants and held placards reading: ‘Education not indoctrination.’ One child carried a handwritten sign which said: ‘Let kids be kids.’ The protest comes amid a campaign against lessons on equality at the school, with parents in the predominantly Muslim

Olathe, Kan.—Three Olathe middle school students went the extra mile to ensure every girl at their school had a special Valentine’s Day. Eighth-grader Tristan Valentine, seventh-grader Kyan Rice and sixth-grader Lincoln Holmes used hundreds of their own dollars to purchase flowers for all 270 girls and 70 female staff members at Summit Trail Middle School. The three boys arrived early at the school Thursday with buckets and buckets of carnations.

New York — An estimated 570,000 undocumented immigrants are currently living in New York State — the majority in New York City — may soon be eligible for driver’s licenses. Rallying on the steps of City Hall, elected leaders and advocates are pushing for all immigrants regardless of legal status to be granted the privilege. “The one thing we are hearing from our immigrant communities from Brentwood to Buffalo is drivers licenses are the single biggest issue,” said Steven Choi with the New York Immigration Coalition. The city council Wednesday overwhelmingly passed a resolution encouraging state lawmakers to make licenses happen.

Atlanta—A federal labor union says some of its members found what it called a “racist book open and on display” in a Republican Georgia congressman’s Washington office. The American Federation of Government Employees said in a news release that its members were visiting the offices of U.S. Rep.

The union said the 1897 book that glorifies Confederate history was open to a page that read: “The blacks are immeasurably

Hours after President Trump appeared in El Paso Monday at a rally to demand border wall money, a massive group of illegal immigrants breached the border a few miles away. Border Patrol agents say 311 migrants strolled around the end of the border fence in Sunland Park, New Mexico, and walked into the U.S., where they were arrested just before midnight. Almost all of them were families or unaccompanied alien children (UAC) from Central America, part of a stream of mini-caravans who have traversed Mexico over the last year, finding holes in American border security.

At first I was giddy for the fresh start. But hormones and sex change genital surgery couldn´t solve the underlying issues driving my gender dysphoria. I started my transgender journey as a 4-year-old boy when my grandmother repeatedly, over several years, cross-dressed me in a full-length purple dress she made especially for me and told me how pretty I was as a girl. This planted the seed of gender confusion and led to my transitioning at age 42 to transgender female. I lived as “Laura” for eight years, but, as I now know, transitioning doesn’t fix

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district.

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep.

McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016.
