April 10, 2019 9:26 AM Log in to Reply LoyaltyIsMyHonor No mention of Jen Jordan’s ridiculously over sized fake eye lashes? Those alone could give a resounding beat down to Senator Perdue. April 10, 2019 10:15 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn What do fake eye lashes have to do with what a person says? April 10, 2019 11:57 AM Log in to Reply DrMonicaHenson I imagine it was part of the “stage makeup” that helps define features when speaking in front of a group, large lights, etc. I use heavier makeup than normal when I have a public speaking engagement. I find false eyelashes far less disturbing than, say, a bright orange skin tone and white bags under one’s eyes from the sunlamp/spray tan goggles.

April 11, 2019 10:32 AM Log in to Reply alpha male Bunch of deep state leftists in the intel community/ FBI and Obama DOJ having to change their britches after AG Barr’s testimony this morning. Of course, anyone paying attention the last couple of years, that is, receiving their news from outside the Pravdaesque mainstream fake news media, already knew all this. But very happy to see this official investigation of the genesis of this sham. April 10, 2019 12:15 PM Log in to Reply Grindelwald LOL at Capt. Insecurity up here thinking that the cops that comprise the FBI are “leftists.” April 10, 2019 12:20 PM Log in to Reply alpha male Andy McCabe on line one. Or is that Peter Strzok? April 10, 2019 12:32 PM Log in to Reply Grindelwald https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2018/01/29/the-men-allegedly-leading-the-deep-state-conspiracy-against-trump-are-surprisingly-republican/?utm_term=.b6bad7a7b584 Rosenstein? A longtime registered Republican. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III? He was a registered Republican when GOP President George W. Bush appointed him as FBI director, and he still was as of 2017. James B. Comey? A longtime registered Republican before testifying in 2016 that he no longer was. McCabe? As CNN reported recently, he voted in the 2016 Republican presidential primary. … This is also somewhat the case with Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who was demoted for writing Trump-bashing text messages. While Strzok’s comments in those texts were clearly and frequently anti-Trump, he also derided Democratic politicians like Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, former attorney general Eric Holder, and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley and even criticized Chelsea Clinton as “self-entitled.” He at one point mused that someone had guessed that he voted for Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the 2016 presidential race. I guess if you received your news from somewhere other than Tucker Carlson’s soiled Depends, you’d have known this.

April 10, 2019 3:07 PM Log in to Reply bethebalance I think the residency issue resonates easily. It could also be the basis of a pre-election lawsuit challenging her residency qualification. April 10, 2019 7:07 PM Log in to Reply davidmac Nope, can’t challenge pre-election. Per the Annotated Constitution, the precedent is set that residency must be established prior to being sworn in, not prior to election. See p.116 April 11, 2019 2:55 PM Log in to Reply bethebalance Hey, I’m no expert in this particular area, and I note a correction below, but I don’t think you’re entirely on point here. First, I tend to think that her residency could be challenged for the term she is serving right now, and it very well may be. If not, she could certainly be challenged during the next cycle- but yes, it appears that she has to win during that cycle in order to be challenged. That said, the residency requirement is to be fulfilled upon the date of election. Even according to the document you provided, pertinent excerpt below: “Clause 2. No person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty-five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an inhabitant of the State in which he shall be chosen.” … “Although the language of the clause expressly makes residency in the state a condition at the time of election, it now appears established in congressional practice that the age and citizenship qualifications need only be met when the Member-elect is to be sworn. Thus, persons elected to either the House of Representatives or the Senate before attaining the required age or term of citizenship have been admitted as soon as they became qualified.” Note the difference between the residency and the citizenship requirements. So, she could be challenged– if elected. April 11, 2019 4:45 PM davidmac Thanks for the clarification. The Annotated Constitution seems to be using shorthand, but residency issues have been tested as well. However, if the GA GOP thought this was a winning position, they would have already filed a lawsuit against her immediately upon Rep. McBath taking the oath of office on January 3rd. They’re only using this in the Court of Public Opinion. Relevant precedents (Most relevant is Sec. 437): “437. The Senate considered qualified a Senator who, being a citizen of the United States, had been an inhabitant of the State from which he was appointed for less than a year.” https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/GPO-HPREC-HINDS-V1/pdf/GPO-HPREC-HINDS-V1-14.pdf April 12, 2019 11:24 AM bethebalance Yeah, my thought was that the new info about Cobb County Tax Commissioner’s decision may impel some to legal action. But it will certainly be used politically.

A little more research might enlighten. April 10, 2019 7:17 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
