Evidence the Georgia GOP loves a Police State

By now everyone has heard of the “Jake” TV Spot.  Here it is in case you’ve not seen it.

By now everyone has heard of the “Jake” TV Spot.  Here it is in case you’ve not seen it.

A lot of people are talking about all the Gun Ads .

 

Here is NPR talking about it. After Parkland, Some Republicans Try To Outdo Each Other On Gun Rights In Primaries.

There is a lot of good evidence in that post.

 

Georgia governor candidate aims gun at teen in campaign ad. ‘Get over it,’ he tells critics.

The Washington Post is very. interested in looking for evidence.

 

 

So the Narrative is that Trump and His Supporters at Fascists.

This fight over who can be who can be the most violent, who can be the most physically forceful, and who can be toughest against “Crime” provides evidence for that narrative.

These stories about how Guns are playing into the Trump narrative of “Strong” leaders.  It would be reasonable to conclude that the evidence provided in these stories supports that conclusion.

Of course, there are other reasonable narratives.  I will be interested in seeing those narratives articulated and evidence found to support them.

 

 

Brian Kemp Provides More Evidence Conservatives Cannot Govern Effectively

Brian Kemp provides more evidence Conservatives cannot govern.

Apparently Secretary of State Brian Kemp is attacking another Conservative group called Citizens for Georgia’s Furture. Conservatives have to attack everyone.  They trust no one.  No wonder our government is dysfunctional.  It is, not surprisingly, being run by Conservatives.

The latest evidence is a report from Greg Bluestein, AJC Political Insider, that Kemp assailed  “secret donors and shady tactics” from Citizens for Georgia’s Future in a speech at the Cobb County GOP over the weekend.  Kemp was upset that Citizens for Georgia’s Future said they ” could” launch ads to try to influence the race for the No. 2 spot in the May 22 primary.

Kemp is reported as having said:

  • “That’s typical, pathetic, insider politics if you ask me,” ,
  • “I fully expect” to be targeted by pro-Cagle forces in the next two weeks.
  • He said the group will criticize his record as Georgia’s top elections official and question his experience in the private sector.
  • “Cagle’s team will attempt to stop the bleeding he’s experiencing by lashing out at me,”
  • “But you’re smarter than that.”

Just as a reminder we are filling up two big Kemp evidence buckets: 1) Kemp’s role in data breaches and disclosures, 2) The lawsuit claiming he lied to make $500,00.0.

Again, this is evidence that Conservatives just cannot govern.  They don’t trust anyone.

In these critical times for our communities, one would think the GOP would be talking about how to solve the issues.  Particularly how to solve the issues of divisiveness in our communities.  Instead of walking the walk of improved civility they chose to attack in relatively mean ways.  Using phrases like “secret donors and shady tactics” and “That’s typical, pathetic, insider politics if you ask me.”

It is normal political communication to criticize your opponent.  But, Kemp, Cagle, and most Conservatives have raised criticism to a hateful art.

We know they don’t like government.  This is evidence for a possible reason they hate government.  Perhaps they hate everyone that is not them.

Evidence that Brian Kemp Should Not Be Georgia Governor

A May 30th date has been set for hearing to see if Brian Kemp lied.  If this is true, and Kemp did lie to make money, then that would be evidence he should not be Georgia Governor.

Apparently, an Investment company, TLP Investments is suing Brian Kemp and his Company for Lying to make $500,000.

The lawsuit was originally filed by Toccoa-based RLP Investments LLC against Kemp, Hart AgStrong LLC and Robert E. Davis.

RLP Investments issued a press release about the case Friday, in which it said the lawsuit was filed to reclaim a $500,000 business loan that was in default. The investment company said it had been a loan originator to Hart AgStrong.

“We loaned $500,000 to Hart Ag Strong, LLC, based in part on personal guarantees from Robert Davis and Brian Kemp, who were engaged in the production and sale of canola oil to other agriculture businesses,” RLP principal officer Rick Phillips said in a statement.

A motions hearing in the case is currently scheduled to take place in Gwinnett Superior Court at 9 a.m. May 30.

The case specifically centers around a 2016 loan RLP made to Hart AgStrong. It was the investment firm’s second loan to the Bowersville-based agricultural company, which produces canola and sunflower oil and meal.

“Canola oil, for example, is a popular and health-conscious food or feed-additive according to our market research,” Phillips said. “Our original loan of $600,000 to Hart AgStrong was repaid in a timely way, but the subsequent loan ($500,000) is in default. It’s disappointing that they won’t pay, and we are forced to file a lawsuit whenever a loan is in default like this one.”

There are a number of facts that need verification.

  • What did the RLP Press release say?
  • Did Kemp have anything to do with the default?  The lawsuit says he did.  Kemp says he did not.  That should be verifiable.
  • Did Kemp lie to RLP?
  • The lawsuit says Kemp gave “personal guarantees.”  That should be verifiable.

It is interesting to note Kemp’s response:

During my 30 years as a small businessman, I have invested in dozens of companies in Georgia

I am one of many investors in Hart AgStrong and know they are working hard to resolve this issue.

So, he is saying he was not involved.  The lawsuit says he gave them his personal guarantee.  Ok. That should be verifiable.  We should request correspondence between Kemp and Hart AgStrong to see if Kemp is telling the truth.   I suspect, if asked Kemp would not allow this.  And if he does allow it, we know why.
