Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a Democrat, refused to concede in her race against Republican Brian Kemp, but has said there is no possibility of her defeating Kemp and has concluded her bid for Georgia governor. "I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election," Abrams said Friday. "This speech is not a concession, because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper," Abrams said. "As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that. But, my assessment is the law currently allows no further

One of the old hand tools of the new socialists party, when losing, waste little time in tweaking rules and "relanguaging" definitions to make themselves feel better. Sticking with what has made this country great is not acceptable.

What Stacy meant:
“If I get caught cheating and still lose the election I don’t want to be governor anyhow.”

I don´t think that word [concession] means what you think it does, indigo montoya: "the act of conceding (as by granting something as a right, accepting something as true, OR acknowledging defeat) ... ."

You have granted that Kemp has a right to the office, you have accepted that it is true he has a right to the office, and you have acknowledged your defeat.

So, liberace, you have conceded in every sense of the word.

You are probably confused with the word "conceited."

Like most Blacks, Abrams felt she was owed the governorship. When it turned out that others didn´t feel the same way, then the only reason that was possible was that Kemp and the Repubs cheated and didn´t count all the black votes. This is more fallout from Affirmative Action -- several generations of Blacks that feel they are owed whatever they want.

By officially ending efforts to win she has effectively conceded. She can call it transconcessional for all I care, it´s still a concession.

Two Democratic legislators and immigration lawyers escorted a group of Central American caravan migrants in Tijuana past U.S. guards and through border gates on Monday evening. The group of favored migrants at the Otay Mesa port of entry included Maria Meza, the Central American woman who was photographed when she brought her two children right up to the U.S. border as border officers launched tear gas to repel aggressive migrants. The group also included several teenagers who will soon turn 18 and lose the legal protections set for non-adult migrants.“After 7hrs, I can now confirm: Maria Meza & her kids

PHOENIX — Arizona’s governor has named Rep. Martha McSally to replace U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl in the U.S. Senate seat that belonged to Sen. John McCain. Republican Gov. Doug Ducey announced Tuesday that McSally will take over after Kyl’s resignation becomes effective Dec. 31. McSally lost the Senate race to Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema. “With her experience and long record of service, Martha is uniquely qualified to step up and fight for Arizona,” Ducey said in a statement. “I thank her for taking on this significant responsibility and look forward to working with her and Senator-Elect Sinema to get positive

The Trump administration issued proposals Tuesday to prevent school shootings, a plan that includes arming more school personnel, taking guns away from highly dangerous people and revoking Obama-administration rules that were criticized for easing discipline of minority students.The president’s commission on school safety, which was formed after the mass shooting Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people, also calls on the media to stop publicizing the names and photographs of shooters to discourage other potential killers from seeking notoriety.

A group of Muslims who work for Amazon would rather pray than work, and because the multinational tech giant refuses to grant them this entitlement, the Muslims are now fighting back. How? By protesting and airing their grievances to sympathetic ears in the left-wing media.

A popular Christmas carol is “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” In keeping with the Christmas season, and the ongoing efforts by the Washington, D.C. elites and ruling classes to destroy anything and everything related to President Trump, it’s time to review some current opinion polls. Rasmussen Reports, acknowledged by media mavens as, “one of the most accurate polling operations in the 2016 election” has a daily presidential tracking poll. Not only for the current president, but also for the last one. It generally shows middle of the road rankings for President Trump, as it did for President Obama, with some

Russian operatives set up scores of fake Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, and used them to spread falsehoods about the FBI being corrupt and conspiracy theories that Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion is a plot by Trump critics.

Special counsel Robert Mueller on Monday released a heavily-redacted memo detailing former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s interview with FBI agents in which Flynn repeatedly lied about his contacts with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The January 2017 memo describes FBI agents’ conversation with Flynn about his contacts with Mr. Kislyak. Flynn pleaded guilty last year to lying to FBI agents about his contacts with Mr. Kislyak. He will be sentenced Tuesday. Flynn repeatedly told the FBI agents, including former agent Peter Strzok, that he did not speak to Mr. Kislyak about U.S. sanctions imposed on Russia.

There are stirrings of discussion these days in philosophical circles about the prospect of human extinction. This should not be surprising, given the increasingly threatening predations of climate change. In reflecting on this question, I want to suggest an answer to a single question, one that hardly covers the whole philosophical territory but is an important aspect of it. Would human extinction be a tragedy? To get a bead on this question, let me distinguish it from a couple of other related questions. I’m not asking whether the experience of humans coming to an end would be a bad thing.

Joe Lieberman, former ´conscience of

Joe Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-independent who has backed Republicans, has found friends in yet another party: the ruling Communist Party of the People´s Republic of China. The former "conscience of the Senate" has been hired to represent China´s ZTE telecommunications company, which is basically a front organization for Chinese intelligence services. ZTE is under pressure in light of overdue U.S. government efforts to prevent it from entrenching a stronger position in the U.S. economy. With the U.S. now in a new cold war with Beijing, no former U.S. official, let alone a foreign policy hawk like Lieberman, should be serving ZTE.
