Kemp at Davos

Kemp at Davos

If you portray yourself as a Globalist Republican with few conservative principles and you tell the folks at home on a Zoom meeting that you gave “them the Business,” the World Economic Forum (WEF) will “pat you on the head.”

Governor Kemp at the World Economic Forum in Davos

Governor Brian Kemp’s question at the forum: “In the last elections, you were very clearly elected, and the candidates that did not win were ‘election deniers,’ have you got any perceptions here regarding what’s the difference?” Kemp’s responses were about business climate, secure the border, and the Inflation Reduction Act, but nothing about election integrity.  The WEF got what they were looking for when Kemp, in essence, said “election deniers can’t win in Davos’ New World Order.”

In contrast, when President Donald Trump attended Davos before the election of 2020, his message to the World Economic Forum was: “A Nation’s highest duty is to its citizens. A pro-worker, pro-family agenda demonstrates how a nation can thrive.” “But to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom.” “These alarmists always demand the same thing – ABSOLUTE POWER. To dominate, transform, and control every aspect of our lives.”  

Klaus Schwab, founder of the WEF, stated “We have to prepare for a more angry world……” and “What we are very proud of is that we have penetrated the cabinets. . .”  

Check out the other invitees to 2023 World Economic Forum. We don’t see any America First leaders on this roster. There are a few Globalist Republicans here, but no Populist Republicans nor Grassroots Republicans, nor Nationalist Republicans, nor Conservative Republicans, just Elite Republicans who want to do business with CCP and WEF and Multinational Corporations who care not for America’s citizens. 

Brian Kemp, Daniel Issa, Joe Manchin, Samantha Power, John Kerry, Gretchen Whitmer, and Christopher Wray, Director of FBI, . . . hmmmm?  The last time the World Economic Forum invited a governor from Georgia was in 1970’s – Governor Jimmy Carter. And do you know how many of his cabinet positions were WEF members. There were ten of them, especially Zbigniew Brzezinski, father of Mika.  

Key Wins Vindicate Stalwart Republican Fighters!

Key Wins Vindicate Stalwart Republican Fighters!

Although several races are still unresolved, true conservatives had some prominent victories to celebrate after last night’s election.

The biggest win was Governor Ron DeSantis‘ sweeping a 59.4% win in Florida over Democrat Charlie Crist. If you watched the gubernatorial debate between DeSantis and Crist, you saw how vicious and numerous Crist’s attacks were against DeSantis on every issue near to the heart of liberals. For example, Crist accused DeSantis of wanting to take away women’s “choice in healthcare” for abortion while simultaneously saying he believed “in science” and thus in keeping the state in lockdown and forcing vaccine mandates and mask mandates. Crist said he unlike DeSantis believed in exposing children to drag queens and indoctrinating children in trans nonsense which encourages them to mutilate their bodies before they can appreciate the long-term impact. Yadayadayada.

But the Democrat’s agenda at war with reality was resoundingly rejected in the person of Ron DeSantis last night. DeSantis is not a Republican afraid of controversy and of advancing the GOP platform principles. He is not afraid to fight the culture war. He won the Hispanic vote, he won Miami Dade County for the first time for the GOP in virtually two decades, and he effectively made Florida no longer a swing state but a solid red state with the trickle-down impact of his candidacy’s coat-tails for other Republican races in the state.

Abrams & Kemp

In Georgia, our incumbent Governor Brian Kemp, who hasn’t been as strident as DeSantis, but who was at least courageous enough to also re-open our state at the height of the COVID lockdowns and pass Constitutional Carry, also won a firm victory of 53.4% to 45.8% against radical liberal Stacey Abrams. Sadly, however, Kemp’s win did not help down-ballot races in Georgia the same way DeSantis did in Florida. As a result, Herschel Walker is headed to a runoff with Democrat Raphael Warnock on December 6th.

The GRA saw many wins for our endorsed candidates across the ballot. Among the victories, our endorsed candidate for 14th Congressional District Marjorie Taylor Greene won with 65.88% of the vote, and our endorsed candidate Bruce Thompson won his race for Labor Commissioner with 52.11 percent. In the State House, our endorsed candidates Mitchell Horner (District 3), Charlice Byrd (District 20), Jordan Ridley (District 22), and David Clarke (District 100) had strong wins. Although our endorsed candidate and attorney Catherine Bernard did not win in her race in the liberal heart of DeKalb County, she ran an admirable campaign that forced the Democrats to sweat and spend resources in a district that many other Republicans would write-off.

Burt Jones & family

In the State Senate, our three endorsed candidates won their races, including Colton Moore (District 53). State Senator Burt Jones won election with over 2 million votes as the new Lieutenant Governor, replacing the lousy Geoff Duncan.

These developments, combined with Speaker David Ralston‘s announced resignation as Speaker of the State House, means that the Georgia General Assembly could be moving in a much more conservative direction next year, more friendly to advancing the concerns of the grassroots.

Cobb GOP Resolutions Critiquing Governor Brian Kemp Last Week Stir Controversy

Cobb GOP Resolutions Critiquing Governor Brian Kemp Last Week Stir Controversy

Last week the official Cobb County Republican Party Committee created something of a stir when they met last Thursday and passed several resolutions critiquing and “censuring” (a better word might have been “reprimanding”) Governor Brian Kemp, and calling for protections at all levels of civil government of medical freedom for citizens. The resolutions addressed time-sensitive subjects. The critiques of Governor Kemp concerned his handling of the allegations of election fraud and revisions to the voting system to ensure accuracy, the illegal immigration, and the indiscriminate admission of Afghan refugees.

Cobb RA member Michael Opitz was appointed as the Resolutions Committee Chairman of the Cobb County Republican Party and orally presented the resolutions, some of which were revisions of earlier drafts presented at a previous committee meeting. Supporters of Governor Kemp protested the resolutions on technical grounds, but the resolutions passed the committee overwhelmingly.

The GRA commends the GOP for holding elected officials accountable to Republican principles at all times. If Republicans do not promote their stated objectives, then the Republican Party becomes meaningless. While we have commended Governor Kemp’s performance in certain instances, we have also offered a critique of some of his actions as well. Such critiques are not endorsements of primary opponents, but instructive for all concerned and provide officials such as Governor Kemp the opportunity to correct their missteps before the next election. If Republican officials expect the grassroots activists to get out the vote for them during campaign season, they have a responsibility to listen to their concerns.

However, the Cobb YRs put out an email on Saturday condemning the Cobb GOP for passing the resolutions. Cobb RA member Nathan Adams called the author of the message on behalf of the Cobb YRs a “lobbyist, posing as a grassroots leader, tell[ing] you that you can’t hold your elected officials accountable …”. GRA President Alex Johnson added that actually most of the board members for the Cobb YRs have a conflict of interest: “One would think and assume that a YR group is ‘grassroots’. But simply look at the composition of their Board of Directors posted on their website: of the 4 board members listed, one of them works for a politician (a Congressman), and two of the others have businesses tied to lobbying that require politicians to like/support them.”

The GRA disagrees with the Cobb YRs about holding elected officials accountable, and our Board today passed a resolution supporting GOP organizations that have held officials accountable. Accountability helps motivate people to campaign and vote with the assurance that our candidates will do what they profess.

Members of the Cobb RA Executive Committee did, however, urge the Cobb GOP Resolutions Committee to provide copies of any proposed resolutions in advance with the Call of the Meeting in the future, and encouraged any party rules to be changed to ensure such a reasonable practice would be followed.
