The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia

Posted by

 

hat the hell happened in Georgia, and how did it become the center of a contentious national presidential election? And why is Gen. Thomas McInerney saying that U.S. Special Forces attacked the CIA server farm in Germany, killing five soldiers.

It’s an American odyssey that neither starts nor ends in the concrete jungles of Atlanta or in the red soil of Georgia’s backwoods. Rather, it’s an epic tale of American fuedalism.

It’s dusk in Chattahoochee Hill Country in the southwestern part of Fulton County, Georgia and far away from the lights of Atlanta.

The air is already chilly, promising a cold November night. I turn off Fulton Parkway, somewhere on the backside of Fox Hall Resort and travel along Hutchinson Ferry Road where I roll to a stop. There are no cars behind me.

There is just enough daylight left before the sun sets for me to drink in the sight of the gently rolling hills and “listen” to the silence as I roll my window down and sniff the air.

The land is pristine and rather than flicking my cigarette out of the window, I respectfully drop the butt in a near-empty water bottle on the console.

The skyline between the trees is painted orange and pink, and another few miles away preparations for a deer hash and a night of drinking among friends and neighbors is underway.

It’s now tar black as I traverse a private gravel road choked on either side with spindly pines and underbrush. If you are an urban dweller, the utter darkness of southwestern Fulton County will un-nerve you. It’s just me and the headlights.

There are no streetlights or 24-hour convenience stores and acres separate neighbors. In 2020, the land remains untamed and rural. It’s the Georgia we thought we all knew.


“Yeah way down yonder on the Chattahoochee
Never knew how much that muddy water meant to me
But I learned how to swim and I learned who I was
A lot about livin’ and a little ’bout love”

—Alan Jackson


After what seems like an eternity of dodging potholes and avoiding overhanging limbs, I round a sharp curve where my headlights illuminate a dozen cars or more in a makeshift parking lot of an old cow pasture.

The light from several bonfires illuminates small groups of party goers and beyond this, I can just make out the outline of a homemade lean-to that shelters several picnic tables.

Outdoor Christmas lights are strung around the tables and people are moving back and forth with plates of food or reaching into coolers for cold beer.

From a small cinder block building that resembles a garage, country music wafts out the open door as people come and go and children dart between adults like minnows.

An old metal drum outside is alive with a roaring fire, sending sparks up in the dark like fireflies as people pause to warm their hands and have a laugh with friends.

Just a 45 minute drive away in Atlanta, the restaurants in the Buckhead Village district are humming on a Saturday night. It’s a world away from the Saturday night party in the woods. Here, trendy patrons are well-dressed and fun can be bought with the swipe of a card.

Outside, the parking lot is filled with shiny new crossovers and smokers huddle together in high-heeled boots and cashmere scarves around gas lanterns as they nurse goblets of wine or sip on craft beer.

Inside, waitresses hustle to tables bearing refills and platters of steaming root vegetables, Oregon seared salmon and smoked oysters.

Like much of America, Fulton County, Georgia is home to two worlds, and a once predictable red state has seemingly sold its soul to the devil, or at least the devil went down to Georgia in the form of Democratic coastal carpet baggers.

So what the hell happened the night the lights went out in Georgia on November 3, 2020? Did Georgians trust their soul to backwoods southern lawyers who sold them out to the Chinese or did their elected officials just jump aboard the Democratic gravy train?


“That’s the night that the lights went out in Georgia
That’s the night that they hung an innocent man
Well, don’t trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer
‘Cause the judge in the town’s got bloodstains on his hands”

—Vicki Lawrence


Why is it that the Democratic Party has their hands up Georgia’s skirts. Isn’t Georgia, after all, a humid no-man’s swamp, a breeding ground of deplorables in camo? Poor uneducated rednecks and smelly Walmart shoppers?

How is it that Georgians, who serve as reliable fodder for ridicule in television, movies and culture made by West Coast elites spawned a lucrative movie industry?

 

 

As is common in most of the United States, Georgia is really a tale of two Americas. In the metropolitan area of Atlanta, well-heeled diners carefully avoid the no-go zones of crime-infested Atlanta and particularly the subway system.

Outside of Fulton and Dekalb counties, residents are decidedly and overwhelmingly working-class white rural families. The culture in the backwoods celebrates independence, self-sufficiency, family, hunting and conservation, God and hard work.

Often erroneously referred to as Chocolate City, the Atlanta metro area is actually nearly equally white and black. In the 2010 census, the racial makeup of Fulton County was 46.4 percent white and 44.3 percent black. Atlanta is home to more than 45 percent college graduates and professionals with a median income of $55,733.

But Atlanta, and the state of Georgia, is no a virgin when it comes to being the bi-polar center of national attention and crooked politics.

On  October 12, 1958, 50 sticks of dynamite exploded at the Hebrew Benevolent Congregation on Peachtree Street. Rabbi Jacob Rothschild was an outspoken advocate for civil rights and preached on the subject before later working with and supporting Martin Luther King, Jr.

Georgia also gave us our 39th Democratic President, the deeply religious peanut farmer, Jimmy Carter. Carter, a one-term, dark horse President, failed miserably in the Iranian hostage crises and lost his re-election bid to Republican President Ronald Reagan.

Between 1996 to 1998, bombs exploded four times in Atlanta and Birmingham, triggering a five-year FBI manhunt for the suspected bomber Eric Robert Rudolph. The centennial Olympic Park pipe bombing on July 27, 1996 occurred during the Summer Olympics and injured 111 people and killing one.

Atlanta was also the center of the commercial and rail industries in the Civil War and was used as a military supply route by the Confederate Army. General Sherman and his troops captured the city in 1864 and burned Atlanta to the ground.

Georgia, and particularly Atlanta, have been the center of national attention and on almost everyone’s mind since its inception. And even today the Confederate flag is seen as a symbol of southern heritage, not racial hate, by those born and bred in the rural pockets of the state.

Georgia has been the subject of countless songs and numerous movies and has been dubbed “Y’allywood,” where the movie business has added $9.5 billion to the state’s economy—at the expense of the Georgian tax payer.

In 2019, the state was once again in the national spotlight when Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law the heartbeat bill, stirring up abortion rights activists such as Alyssa Milano and forcing movie and production companies that had gotten fat on Georgia’s golden goose eggs to choose sides on social issues.

But you can’t peel the skin off this politically rotten Georgia peach without first starting with Stacey Abrams, who became the unlikely architect of building a literal Democratic machine to seize the reigns of power in the state.

Abrams knows, as do the folks in the Chattahoochee Hills, that we are living in two Americas—and she aims to capture the flag as much as Gen. Sherman did.

In an AP report hailing Abrams political power, the authors wrote, “This week’s election is the culmination of a political shift decades in the making. The GOP’s advantage has slowly eroded as Atlanta and its surrounding suburbs experience explosive population growth. Abrams said she’s seen this moment coming over many election cycles.”

Abrams reportedly said in an interview before the election: “Georgia has had the potential for years. It didn’t just start this cycle. This has been work that’s been ongoing for nearly a decade [my emphasis], and I’m just proud to see it come to fruition and for it to finally receive the level of investment it deserves.”

Abrams, who served in the Georgia House from 2011 to 2017 before launching a one-time bid for governor in 2018 made national headlines when she infamously refused to concede to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.

Abrams, with the blessing of her Washington insider contacts, blamed her loss on “systemic voter suppression” by state election officials, including her opponent, who was then Georgia’s Secretary of State overseeing his own contest against Abrams.

Notably, Abrams is a lifetime member of the Council on Foreign Relations, an insidious organization made up of the mostly wealthy and stealthy of globalists around the world, where she serves—unsurprisingly—on the Subcommittee on Diversity.

Abrams rose from the ashes of her failed gubernatorial run by using her time in the national spotlight to launch her brainchild organization Fair Fight Action and the Fair Fight Political Action Committee, a.k.a. the Carey Committee, to ostensibly fight “voter suppression.”

To be clear, there is no voter suppression in Georgia, but accusing white people of suppressing brown and black votes is the Democratic-blessed vehicle of choice for the left.

In reality, Abrams was building a Democrat Kracken herself, with Democrat megadonors behind her to take over the state of Georgia. Her Fair PAC quickly swelled its coffers to $26 million, with former New York City mayor and failed presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg donating $5 million.

As the list of wealthy donators and donations from other PACs poured money into Georgia, Abram’s Fair was shoveling the money out its own back door to other Democratic PACs, donating nearly $24 million to Democratic races in key swing states.

In 2019-2020, Abrams’ PAC donated to almost every single contested race in the 2020 presidential election, giving the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party $17,855; the Democratic Party of Nevada $16,325; the Democratic Party of Wisconsin $15,139; the Democrat Party of Pennsylvania $6,266; and the Michigan Democratic State Central Committee $8,936.

The list of blue-blooded donors is too lengthy to list but includes Merle Catherine Chambers, who co-hosted a fundraiser to benefit Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential election and gave Abrams organization $100,000.

Kathleen McGrath, who also donated to Fair, is the co-CEO and Chief Strategy Officer at Bad Robot Productions, and was a founding Partner at First Tuesday Media, a political media firm. In addition to throwing money at Fair, her firm also pledged to give $10 million over five years to Black Lives Matter, Black Futures Lab, Community Coalition, Equal Justice Initiative, and Know Your Rights Camp.

Perhaps most telling on who is backing Abrams is her current role in serving on the Priorities USA Action PAC board, a Super PAC associated with supporting Democratic Party candidates and opposing Republican candidates. This group was founded in 2011 by former Obama White House staffers Bill Burton and Sean Sweeney.

President Obama threw his support behind the USA Action PAC and during the 2012 election cycle, the group raised and spent $66 million becoming the most well-funded Super PAC in American history, raising $175 million and spending more than $117 million on the 2016 elections.

And did I mention that with the support of Obama’s backing, Abrams sits on the board of the biggest Super PAC in U.S. history? Notably, a large portion of the PACs contributions came from donors who gave over seven figures. Not exactly the party of the people.

Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, who oversees the elections division of the Department is responsible for overseeing all election activity, including voter registration, municipal, state, county and federal elections. It is his Department that is responsible for the certification of election results as well as certifying the qualification of candidates and preparation of ballots and election forms and materials.

Raffensperger is under fire for his handling of the Georgia elections. Attorney Lin Wood filed suit against Raffensperger, alleging that a policy to require three sets of eyes on any questionable signature was unilaterally approved by Raffensperger and should have been the decision of the state legislature. He called the decision a violation of the state constitution and a burden on local elections offices.

His motion to stop the certification of the Georgia election was denied and just short of 24 hours later, the election was certified by Raffensperger and formalized by Gov. Brian Kemp. Who says they move slow in the South? On “Sunday Morning Futures,” President Trump told Maria Bartiroma he was ashamed he had ever backed Kemp.

Attorney Sydney Powell has also filed suit against both Raffensperger and Kemp they violated Georgia law and the Constitution and Wood is enjoined as one of the attorneys on the case.

Powell alleges, among other serious irregularities, that 96,000 absentee ballots were counted but never recorded as being returned to county election boards by the voters, that 3,300 votes were found on memory sticks that were not uploaded on election night and another 2,600 votes were not scanned.

Attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood.

It has been alleged that both Sec. Raffensperger and Gov. Kemp took money from China. In a tweet storm, Lin Wood said:

“Would someone ask my never-to-be friend Brad Raffensperger if he has seen this tape of election fraud at State Farm Arena in Fulton Co., GA. Wood went on to tweet:

“Several people have seen it. Many more will see it soon. Video camera eye does not lie. How do you spell Election Fraud?” Wood added images of a subpoena for Atlanta Hawks Vice President Scott Wilkinson from the U.S. District Court with Raffensperger listed as the defendant.

“In time, people are going to prison in Georgia,” Wood warned in his next tweet, adding, “Every lie will be revealed.”

Yet the money from the Democratic machine continues to pour into the state. Breitbart reported that a Black Lives Matter PAC hopes to raise half a million dollars to boost Georgia Senate Democrat candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.

“The Georgia Senate runoffs in January will determine whether Democrats will gain control of the Senate majority. If Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) lose to Warnock and Ossoff, then Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would become the tiebreaking vote in the Senate should she be formally elected vice president.”

According to the Georgia Recorder, Attorney General Chris Carr and Gabriel Sterling, voting system implementation manager for Secretary of State Brad Raffenspeger, sent out a Notice to discourage people from attempting to sway the outcome by briefly moving to Georgia:

“In order to have the ability to register to vote in Georgia, you have to be a Georgia resident, which means you have to believe you’re staying in Georgia,” Sterling said at a Thursday press conference. “You can’t be a canvasser for (Michael) Bloomberg; you can’t be a canvasser for the Koch brothers and decide, hey, I’m going vote while I’m here.”

It doesn’t seem that Stacey Abrams got the message. Abrams flew to the West Coast to meet with Hollywood producers and executives urging them not to pull out of the state after the controversial Heartbeat bill was passed. She has also produced a documentary film, “All In: The Fight for Democracy,” and is set to release a novel in 2021 called While Justice Sleeps.

It is also rumored that she is meeting with Hollywood heavy hitters on how they can influence the local race in Georgia.

But the victims of this nationwide election steal is its own people. An estimated 73 million people voted for President Donald J. Trump, the first elected official in decades to speak for the forgotten people of Georgia’s Chattahoochee Hills and other rural areas throughout the United States.

He addressed the forgotten steel and mill towns where hope no longer burned in the breasts of men and entire communities were decimated by opiode and fentanyl use.

He promised the forgotten women and men of America that he would end unfair trade agreements and return our manufacturing base to American soil.

And his voters didn’t care if he was brutish, wasn’t a brilliant speaker or even well liked. He was getting things done and improving the everyday lives of ordinary Americans. They liked that he was an outsider and a bull in a China shop, and for the first time in decades, they could see a future that included them in it.

Nancy Isenberg, in her book White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America called the state of Georgia “a great experiment.”

“Rather than a constitutional creation, Georgia was founded as a charitable venture, designed to uplift poor families and to reform debtors. One of the most important minds behind it belonged to James Edward Oglethorpe.”

Georgia, which received its charter in 1732 as the southernmost colony was the last to be established before the American Revolution. “Its purpose was twofold: to carve out a middle ground between the extremes of wealth that took hold in the Carolinas [the planter class] and to serve as a barrier against the Spanish to Florida. As such, it became the site of an unusual experiment.”

And indeed it was. Oglethorpe argued against slavery in the state not from any high-minded view. Rather, he restricted slavery because he believed it would shift the balance of class power in Georgia and “starve the poor white laborer.”

We have come full circle in our national class struggles. Today, the political elite and the wealthy singularly seek to “starve the poor white laborer” and to extinguish the “deplorables.” And it has always been thus.

The American middle class and poor has always been used as fodder for the elites wars and even their industrial revolution. Today, they have used their trade agreements and their open borders to starve us all and to demoralize us all.

Hunger Games Capitol. May the odds be ever in your favor.

But let us not forget that it was the Scottish Highlanders, the Irish, Italian, Finnish, Danes, Dutch and German settlers and others who built this great nation. Who came to these shores not with white privilege or money but conditioned to subsistence living and a belief that, here at last, their hard work might make them free men at last.

They fought valiantly against the English crown, who eschewed Americans, even then, as the throwaway deplorables of society, and it was their spilled blood that secured their right to pursue a life of their own making.

It would take nearly a century to break free from the ruling elite, who suppressed the vote by denying both blacks and whites the right to cast a ballot if they were not landowners.

Today, elites not only want to suppress the vote via controlling real news and social media, they want to steal the vote. Trump supporters are not going to go quietly into the good night. Not only do they have a heritage to uphold, they have a duty to future generations to keep the flame of liberty alive.

Yes, the devil did go down to Georgia. In the words of the late great Charlie Daniels, “He was lookin’ for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind ’cause he was way behind. He was willing to make a deal.”


Georgia, Georgia
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps that Georgia on my mind

I said Georgia
Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

Oh, I
Georgia
Georgia
No peace I find
Just an old sweet song, old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Oh, just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

There’ll always be Georgia
