This week’s Courier Herald column: “At least he fights.” That’s the popular capitulatory phrase used by supporters of President Donald Trump when they have been boxed in to an admission that the former President’s actions are harmful to the execution of his policies or to the long term standing of the Republican party. The problem
This week’s Courier Herald column: We’ve long since detached campaign rhetoric from reality. The activists that control each party instead demand candidates tell them what they want to hear. Voters tell ourselves it’s just talk. We know what they really mean. That’s the status quo, and most of us have made an uncomfortable peace with
This week’s Courier Herald column: It’s not about Donald Trump. Let me repeat that less the opening not be clear enough. The 2022 mid-term elections, both the primary and the general, are not about Donald Trump. My friends in the news media, stuck on their own narrative since 2016, have already concluded this is wrong.
In a brand-new poll shared with The National Journal‘s Hotline, Joe Biden leads President Trump and Rep. Doug Collins will maybe head to a runoff with Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

He should just switch parties at this point. He fits in believing he’s a victim and with his thought-free flipflopping.

Today he endorsed President Trump (R-Slimeball) perhaps for all their similarities: ALLEGED sexual assault, being unfit for public office, rampant attention whoring.. I mean, you name it and they’re peas in a pod!
He was coming to Atlanta. Then he wasn’t. Now he might. That’s the latest 12 hours in the life of the Tumultuous Trump Presidency. The AJC quotes Trump saying “I may be going” to the CDC. This after it was reported the notoriously germaphobic POTUS had canceled his visit. State and federal officials were scrambling
I will admit that as someone who lives well outside of “The Donut,” I don’t always clue in on races this far out that affect only the metro area. However, Donnie Bolena is one of those cases who you can’t miss, even if you try. Bless his heart. I’ve had a lot of emotions surrounding
Some days, I wish there were 100 Johnny Isaksons in the Senate. Today is one of those days. 800,000 Americans, including 71,000 Georgians, are in the middle of a tug-of-war of wills. Make no mistake, the President caused this shutdown back in December when his party still controlled all three branches of government. You can
According to the Washington Post, Oprah Winfrey is coming to campaign in Georgia for Stacey Abrams. If you’re in the Marietta or Decatur area tomorrow, you may have a shot of seeing Lady O. The pair of events will be conversations “on the critical value of women in leadership and what is at stake for
