Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp signed a bill that prohibits large cuts to police budgets in a move against the “defund the police” movement.

The legislation stops cities and counties in the state from reducing their law enforcement budgets by more than 5% in one year or over the course of five years, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“Radical movements like the ‘defund the police’ movement seek to vilify the men and women who leave their families every day and put their lives on the line to protect all Georgians,” Kemp said Friday as he signed the bill.

The signing of the law comes after months of protests against the police and calls by Democrat politicians such as Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York, and Ilhan Omar, Minnesota, to defund police forces across the country.

“This far-left movement will endanger our communities and our law enforcement officers and leave our most vulnerable at risk,” Kemp said.

The bill will also require local governments that want to cut a police budget by more than 5% to hold public hearings to discuss the change. The only exemptions of the bill include places with fewer than 25 officers or low revenue.

Former President Donald Trump and Bill O’Reilly to hold ticketed events called ‘The History Tour’

Published

on


Former President Donald Trump and conservative commentator Bill O’Reilly will participate in four live ticketed events later this year.

“Dubbed “The History Tour,” President Trump will provide a never before heard inside view of his administration — which will be historical in and of itself,” a press release explains.

The tour, which will include four dates, kicks off in Sunrise, Florida this Dec. 11 and 12, with the other events slated for two Texas cities, Houston and Dallas, on Dec. 18 and 19 respectively. 

“These will be wonderful but hard-hitting sessions where we’ll talk about the real problems happening in the U.S., those that the Fake News Media never mention. I will be focusing on greatness for our Country, something seldom discussed in political dialogue. If we don’t make our Country great again, we will soon no longer have a Country! I look forward to working with Bill, who right now has the #1 bestselling book, to openly discuss the real problems of our Country, and how to solve them. Additionally, it will be fun, fun, fun, for everyone who attends!” Trump said.

“My job as a historian/journalist is to get important things on the record in a fact-based way. These conversations with the 45th President will not be boring,” O’Reilly said.

Ariz. Senate Considering Recount of Maricopa County Election Audit Again

Published

on

The Arizona Senate is contemplating a recount of the 2020 election audit taking place in Maricopa County, reports NPR.

Arizona Senators are considering hiring a California-based nonprofit to analyze ballot images and create a third set of numbers to compare with the recount from Dominion Voting Systems machines and the hand recount being conducted by Cyber Ninjas, a Florida-based firm in charge of the current audit.

The firm being considered is nonprofit Citizens’ Oversight, which was brought to the Senate’s attention by John Brakey, a Democrat who works for Audit USA and is working as Bennett’s assistant during the audit.

“I would say absolutely this is a grand test,” Lutz told the Arizona Republic this week. “I think it is certainly a big test for me because I have put a lot of work on it for the last year and a half or so. We have enhanced it to the point now where I believe we can do a lot to provide information about how well (this election) went.”

Lutz uses as an audit engine, or a set of computers, to tabulate the results from each ballot for all contests before comparing the numbers it generates with the official records. The review produces a discrepancy report.

The nonprofit has analyzed ballot images in various counties before but doesn’t appear to have been officially contracted to do so. In one recent case, Lutz’s team analyzed ballot images from three counties in Florida, reports the Epoch Times.

The hand recount is focusing on only two races: the presidential election and the U.S. Senate race. Citizens’ Oversight would be using its technology to audit all the races that were on the ballot.

While Bennett said the ballot image analysis would be finished before the hand count is done, Lutz wasn’t certain that would be the case. He said it would depend on a number of factors, including the condition of the ballot images.

Bennett and Brakey told reporters at the arena on May 27 that more than 800,000 ballots have been counted. They said the process will be completed by June 30.

The current audit started on April 23 and resumed last week after a break. It involves recounting the nearly 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County in last year’s election. Workers are also examining election machines including 385 tabulators.

Democrats have largely opposed the audit, including Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs. She recently warned Maricopa County against using any of the audited machines in upcoming elections, citing security concerns about losing the chain of custody over the equipment when it was handed over to the auditors.

For months, Arizona Senate Republicans battled with the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in court over access to ballots that were cast in the 2020 election and other material for a supposed audit. That audit finally got going in late April, generating national headlines, reported the Phoenix New Times.

The audit is still pending.

Congress

Pompeo calls Biden budget proposal ‘smorgasbord of left-wing activities’

Published

on

–Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday described President Biden’s budget proposal as a “smorgasbord of left-wing activities” the costs of which, he warned, would be inflicted upon future generations.

“This sounds like a smorgasbord of left-wing activities that they want to underwrite with American taxpayers and, make no mistake about it, in the end middle class, hard working Americans will be taxed to pay for this,” he said on “Fox and Friends.”

The White House on Friday unveiled the whopping $6 trillion fiscal 2022 budget request, which will add to the already ballooning debt. It tallies up the administration’s eight-year, $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan and the $1.8 trillion American Families Plan and incorporates them into Biden’s $1.5 trillion request for annual operating expenditures, which includes the Pentagon and other federal agencies.

The proposal will push debt levels held by the public to the highest levels since World War II in 2024 and would spike the deficit to $1.8 trillion in 2022 and would routinely run above $1.3 trillion over the next decade, despite nearly $3 trillion in proposed tax increases.

Pompeo pointed to inclusions such as more than $800 million to Central American countries — part of a potential $4 billion strategy to target “root causes” of the migrant surge which has led to a crisis at the southern border.

“That money going to Central America, I don’t know exactly what they’ve tagged it for but we know that the crisis at the border is not going to be solved by tossing money at the Central American countries — it simply won’t work,” he said.

It also includes $2.1 billion to combat gun violence, $110 million for “transportation equity” and $36 billion in climate investments. Pompeo said he knew would be footing the bill for the massive spending project.

“Sounds like he wants to spend my kids’, and hopefully one day I’ll have grandchildren, their money too,” he said. “This is an enormous budget that will leave an enormous burden on that next generation.”

“This is European social welfare bordering on socialism,” he added.
