COLLINS BILL TO HONOR FALLEN CLERMONT MARINE SENT TO PRESIDENT’S DESK
WASHINGTON—The Senate last night voted unanimously to pass H.R. 3821, legislation to rename Georgia’s Clermont Post Office in honor of Zack T. Addington. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) introduced the bill this September, and it passed the House in November.
“Lance Corporal Zack Addington represents the selfless courage that’s cultivated in northeast Georgia, and I’m excited to see this bill leave Congress and head to the president’s desk for his signature,” said Collins.
Collins also honored Addington when he spoke about the bill on the House floor.
Known to his neighbors as Zack, Addington joined the United States Marine Corps in 1967. A native of Clermont, he became a rifleman in the 3rd Marine Division of the Fleet Marine Force and deployed to Vietnam that year. Addington was promoted to Lance Corporal and served his country honorably until he was killed in action in May 1968.
That June, Addington received the Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon in recognition of his service there.

What’s In It for Local Politics?
It seems that Democrats believe they can turn Georgia, and other “Red” states, “Blue” by challenging Republican incumbents on the basis that everybody really hates Trump. Democrats are shocked that Obama’s legacy is being exposed for the dangerous fraud it was and is being dismantled. For Democrats, it’s not that it was a fraud but that it was exposed.
As a campaign plan, I supposed It could work because the voters that Democrats hope to entice, have been dumbed down by a barely adequate education to the point democrats must feel that challenging a successful conservative political party, led by the hated Donald Trump, could be a workable plan. “Those Bad Republicans will take away all your benefits.”
Democrat do so without offering any plan of their own except the old Leftist doggerel about how racist, Islamophobic and homophobic the Republicans are. That’s an exercise in “hope”, which is no plan at all. But, they could be partially right because Georgia establishment Republicans still stubbornly cling to supporting their elites instead of recruiting new young conservatives, men and women, and grooming them for public office.
For Georgia’s Governor, who is the GOP’s candidate? We’re told it’s Casey Cagle’s race to lose. Why? What has he done? Somebody must believe it because they said it. Do you believe it? The Democrat Left doesn’t. They’re on the attack regardless of a lack of viable candidates or leadership. Their constant and multiple appeals for cash donations fills my email box daily and their only message is a constant: “Impeach Trump!” Their appeals are ludicrous, but I get little or nothing from Republicans or GOP pacs except the occasional fuzzy idea that it’s the old establishment for which they would appreciate my contribution. Nope! I donate only to the candidate of my choice and, If I feel that way, and I know I’m not alone, then local GOP politics are not going to be very successful in either collecting money or keeping offices. Look what happened in Cobb County, Ga,. It’s turning “Blue” A failure of GOP leadership.
Why should Ga. voters be expected to support Casey Cable simply because he is Lt. Governor? That’s no recommendation. He’s old GOP and claims no accomplishments except that he is Lt. Gov. Now, the field is under challenge by several younger, more conservative candidates, any of whom could actually win by embracing the changes that Trump has brought. Michael Williams, Hunter Hill and Mike Neely immediately come to mind as great GOP contenders to support.
Lt. Governors are not entitled to advancement simply because of seniority. For the GOP it’s time for real change. Trump has shown us the way by his active significant achievements that has discombobulated what has long been considered normal politics. There is no better argument than success and the Democrats don’t have it. GOP candidates, if they expect to stay in power, had better get on board the “Trump Train” or at least follow his example.
Local political contests, like in Georgia, concerned with their own local problems, are still a reflection of the national party that’s in power. It’s not the Socialist Democrats and, it’s not really the Republicans either. If there is to be a Republican party and keep that name, the occupiers in it should realize that a fellow named Donald Trump changed the battle plans.
In the grand sweep of history, only a few have made significant difference to popular trends. I reckon Lincoln, Roosevelt, Churchill, Reagan, Thatcher and now Donald Trump as those trend setters. Everything before Trump is history. The decades Democrats have spent introducing socialism into American culture as the norm, are being shredded by the common sense of a pragmatic billionaire businessman. He made promises and he’s keeping them. He’s proving his worth and the elites of both parties, who feel their absolute entitlement to political leadership is being threatened, have been sent reeling in confusion and disorder.
The Democrats are coming after Georgia with gobs of money. They are fixated on socializing America and will continue to dash themselves against the cracked and crumbling wall of long standing civilized customs and traditions until it falls. They were succeeding, until Trump came along, but they haven’t stopped. We have!

What’s Behind the Story?
The ecstatic hoopla by Democrats and the liberal media surrounding Lt.Gen. Flynn’s plea of guilty of lying to the FBI, is too early, too gleeful and really, too devoid of connection as to have much meaning to the Left’s real aim of bringing down the Trump administration. Flynn’s dilemma is a side story that will not affect Donald Trump. The media’s quiver is empty of poison arrows.
The Washington Post, as far back as January of this year, reported the FBI’s investigation of Gen. Flynn for suspected collusion with the Russians, revealed no evidence of collusion, treason or any other form of skulduggery. Flynn wasn’t the FBI’s target, the Russian Diplomat he was speaking to was and there are FISA rules that govern Americans 4th amendment rights when speaking to foreigners.
General Flynn, it must be remembered, was a National Security Advisor in Barack Obama’s administration. It was Gen. Flynn who argued against Obama’s characterization of Islam as a peaceful religion and stood by his assessments that Islam was in fact, a dangerous terrorist threat to the US, no matter what name they called themselves. Obama hated him but did not fire him. It was Donald Trump who fired him because Flynn lied to Vice Pres. Pence. It’s as easy to understand as that.
In the few days that Gen. Flynn did act as President Trumps security advisor, before Trumps inauguration, any contact Flynn had with any foreign country, Russia included, was totally necessary and lawful. That’s what the FBI found and the Washington Post reported last January.
But, Gen. Flynn is apparently a liar and got fired for it. Whatever he said to FBI investigators that was untrue, could not have had anything to do with the Trump administrations post election contacts with the Russians.
So, why the media’s jubilation? They hope something, if it’s screamed out loud enough and often enough, will become true. News is hard to report on when Trump sets the agenda every morning with his “tweets.” The only other prevailing story they can possibly write about is the acquittal of Kate Steinle’s murderer by a jury in the Renegade city of San Francisco, a story they would rather forget because it reveals the real sickness of the Liberal, Progressive’s agenda.
Trump will never be associated with the crimes like are now being revealed against Loretta Lynch and her supposedly clandestine meeting with Bill Clinton in Arizona or, the Clinton’s money laundering foundation, that are all ripe for the pickings. The Fast and Furious gun running operation Eric Holder scammed us with, is a crime waiting to be adjudicated. Dead Americans were the result of Holders action, not to mention the hundreds of Mexican citizens murdered at the Cartels hands with his stolen firearms. That’s nearly as bad as Benghazi and Hillary’s plotted overthrow of Gadaffie that left Libya in ISIS hands; or, the smuggling of arms to ISIS in Iraq and the “rules of engagement” that all but neutralized our troops on the battlefield.
There is yet to be investigate by a Grand Jury, the DNC and Clinton Campaign’s role into the fake “GPS Fusion Report” that triggered a CI Investigation sending Mueller off on his search and destroy mission. Flynn’s a side story, the Democrat Party is where the real felons lurk and they’re ripe for prosecution. First, the FBI and DoJ must be purged of its Progressive thinkers, its Obama holdovers and its leakers of inside information. When that happens, the real story’s will come out and there can’t be enough paper or ink to record ‘em all.

1) What is an ocular migraine? Is it a sign of something serious?
2) If olive oil is high in fat, why is it considered healthy?

We would like to thank the Georgia Cancer Specialist for sponsoring this segment.
I am beginning to reevaluate my views on the right to vote or rather, why some people should even be allowed to vote at all. Once, it was only property owners and merchants who could vote. Women were, at the time, excluded. but no more. No problem there. Limiting voting rights to special interests could be defined as the ultimate example of capital cronyism. Examples of cronyism abound but the most egregious was the railroads, from the beginning of Americas industrial expansion and, as Railroads required iron and later steel, add the steel industry as another egregious example, but coal was king. It was the Robber Baron era.
In those days too, education was limited not by who could go to school but by who did go to school. Children, not totally dedicated as working units in mines and farms, were offered education of some type, mostly limited to reading, writing and arithmetic, while others, children of the merchant class, were offered higher levels of education in literature, history, and the classics. Americas desire for education produced such illuminaries as Mark Twain, Bret Hart and Edward A. Guest, just to name only three authors who all Americans read. But because Americans could read, newspapers proliferated as did education. Americans were becoming informed and their notions about everything changed, especially politics.
Politics were rough and tumble. No change there, and most everyone was engaged in it to some level but always with America and the Constitution in mind. Presidential candidates were selected after days of raucous conventions, torchlight parades, speech making, (without Teleprompters), to noisy, half drunk crowds of friend and foe alike and finally the party’s chose their standard bearers around whom all united until the election. People understood events of the day and that motivated them. The knew the issues, the candidates, who their parents were, their level of understanding and whether they were drunks or not. But, America flourished.
What has happened since? We have high school graduates who can’t make change, college grads with no idea about world geography, current events, or even who their congressman and senators are. They don’t know the great thinkers and therefore have not developed their own cognitive thinking skills. They know more about Hollywood actors than what’s written in the Constitution and, they don’t seem to care. Most believe wealth, food, housing and medical care comes from government and, if it doesn’t, it should.
We are turning out uneducated children who do not know where their “rights” come from. Some believe the Bill of Rights are the ten commandments brought down from Mt. Sinai on tablets of stone. Few can recite the preamble to the Constitution, as most of us were required to do in Elementary school. When asked what makes America “exceptional” they’ll babble about “freedoms” with no idea what freedoms have already been lost by eight years of an over- bearing, Progressive, out of control government.
We can thank Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon and Waters World for their street interviews near college campuses that have revealed again and again, the tragic loss of a good American education wasted on brainwashed cretans. Most merely have a passing acquaintance with the reality they will soon experience. Too soon, I fear, they will face exactly what has left them bereft of the education they sought, indifference by socialism. They will miss the achievement they desired and the future they hoped for. They cannot even talk about issues that affect them without being offended. They are a lost generation and should be prohibited from casting their votes against America.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
