How are Georgia’s Republicans spending taxpayer money?

They’re meeting with too-far-right-for-the-Tea-Party activist Field Searcy to discuss how President Obama hates the suburbs and is using a mind-control technique developed during the Cold War to implement United Nation’s Agenda 21, a non-binding voluntary UN resolution which the Republican Party opposes in its platform and many conspiracy theorists see as a plot to eliminate property rights.

Thanks to watchdog group Better Georgia, you can view some of the contents of a four-hour meeting convened by the Republican Majority Leader of the Georgia State Senate, Chip Rogers. The video above samples the nearly one hour that Better Georgia’s Seth Clark caught on video before he was escorted out of the chamber.

Sen. Rogers had co-sponsored a failed resolution that sought to “recognize the destructive and insidious nature” of Agenda 21.

The appearance of Fox News personality Dick Morris, humanity’s worst political pundit, adds an extra layer of hilarity to the proceedings, as he cherishes any chance to promote his new book—which is about UN conspiracy theories. It’s important to remember that Republicans are literally buying these theories, along with the Glenn Beck blue jeans.

As Bobby Jindal seeks to make Republicans “stop being the stupid party,” this is what he’s contending with.

Colin Powell's death, argues that Christians should welcome death from COVID-19, like any other cause of death, as "a good thing." And she attacks the "pagan assumptions" of those who argue in favor of widespread vaccination.

"For Christians, death is good," Pullmann writes. "Yes, death is also an evil — its existence is a result of sin. But thanks be to God, Jesus Christ has redeemed even death. In his resurrection, Christ has transformed death into a portal to eternal life for Christians…. The Christian faith makes it very clear that death, while sad to those left behind and a tragic consequence of human sin, is now good for all who believe in Christ."

Don Winslow, the author of several New York Times bestsellers, blasted Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) in a newly-released video shared on social media.

For months now, Manchin has positioned himself as one of the main roadblocks of President Joe Biden's proposed Build Back Better agenda, pushing back on key provisions including child tax credits and climate initiatives.
