Give GA SECSTATE Raffensperger Praise Where Praise Is Due

Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger, a Republican, supervises Georgia’s electoral system. The office came under even more scrutiny this year than in other presidential election years. The system faced serious stress because Georgia for the first time faced massive numbers of mail-in voting–and the stress increased exponentially when it became apparent that the Democratic candidate might win the state.

At that moment, Georgia became on of the principal targets of intense pressure from Trump and his loyalists to find someway to subvert the will of the people and throw the election to Trump. When Raffensperger refused to go along, Georgia’s two U.S. Senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue–both running to keep their seats–called on him to resign, in a flagrant attempt to appease Trump. They provided no evidence to back up claims of election irregularities

In IndieDems judgment, Raffensperger deserves much praise for showing the courage and integrity to take a stand against the Republican assault on our basic moral and democratic values. In the same GA GOP he comes from, Loeffler and Perdue are running for the U.S. Senate on the single issue of how committed they are to being Trump’s lap dogs, as he launches baseless “legal” challenges to the election outcome, endangers U.S. national security and American lives by blocking an orderly transition, and does nothing about the pandemic sweeping the nation.

(Read Raffensperger’s account here: “Georgia secretary of state: My family voted for Trump. He threw us under the bus anyway.”)

Not surprisingly, they were two of the key players in in the Inside Trader scam earlier this year.

Further context: GA Republicans just elected to Congress Marjorie Taylor Greene, an avowed supporter of the crackpot QAnon, who has also posted racist and anti-Semitic messages on Facebook. Amazingly, all these Republicans declare they are devout Christians, as they wallow in the immorality of a Party for which God’s Commandments mean and Jesus’ Goden Rule mean absolutely nothing.

Hats off to Brad Raffensperger. We may have a dilemma when he comes up for re-election.

The Racism Behind Trump’s Last Campaign Visit to Georgia

I’m stunned that the  main stream media–like CNN and MSNBC–paid so little attention to the fact that Trump’s visit to Georgia on the eve of the election took place in the Congressional district of Marjorie Taylor Greene, a racist and a leading disciple of the extremist outfit QAnon. Trump got headlines in August when he praised Greene and called her a future Republican star after she won the GOP nomination for the Congressional seat–a victory that ensured her election to Congress in the overwhelmingly Red district.

Trump’s praise for the QAnon advocate was viewed, correctly, as providing enhanced legitimacy to the one-time fringe group and heralding a closer Republican-QAnon alliance. During the past two months, increasing numbers of Republicans have, in fact, welcomed QAnon supporters into the Party’s ranks. See https://www.politico.com/news/2020/10/15/qanon-trump-maga-movement-429739.

Remember, even before her QAnon ties gained notoriety, Greene had also been outed for posting overtly racist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic messages on Facebook. Greene has remained resolutely unapologetic and unrepentant about any of her views.

So, by any criteria, Trump’s pick of the major city in Greene’s district to stage one of his final rallies was meant to send a clear signal of his and the Republican Party’s firm commitment to his racist, xenophobic, white supremacist agenda. If there were any doubt, Trump erased it by including Greene among the names of all the major GA GOP candidates attending the rally–including those running for the U.S. Senate and House–in his praise of local candidates. They all applauded.

Debate Sharpens Outlooks of GA Democratic Senate Candidates

DeKalb County Democrats on April 28 sponsored a debate among the Democrats running to become the Party’s nominee to run against incumbent Senator David Perdue.

Atlanta Journal and Constitution Report on the Debate

Excerpts:
  • Most of the incoming fire targeted Jon Ossoff, a former 6th District candidate who leads the polls, and Sarah Riggs Amico, who enjoys high name recognition thanks to her bid for lieutenant governor in 2018.
  • But former Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson faced challenging questioning, too,
  • While Amico and Ossoff have largely focused on Perdue and avoided pummeling their Democratic rivals, Tomlinson has increasingly swiped at her main opponents as the June 9 primary nears.
  • Ossoff also faced fire from Maya Dillard Smith, a former ACLU of Georgia director

Georgia faces two U.S. Senate races this year, due to the resignation last year of Johnny Isakson. Governor Kemp appointed Kelly Loeffler to hold the seat this year. She faces both Republican and Democratic rivals in the November election to decide who will hold office for the remaining two years of Isakson’s term.

There will be no primary in this race. All the candidates from all parties will be listed together on the November ballot.

See our page Georgia Elections 2020 for details on who is running in both elections.

Two Stunning Indictments of GA’s Ruling Republicans

//Georgia’s morally and intellectually corrupt Republicans continue their march through Georgia//

The AJC has recently published reports on how Georgia Republicans swim well within the mainstream of Trump’s Party by not giving a damn about the suffering of our less fortunate and elderly citizens.

Rural clinic(s) scrambles to provide care amid maternal death crisis

Medicaid limit, OBGYN shortage in Georgia hamper efforts

 Excerpts:

  • The U.S.’s maternal mortality rate is among the highest of the developed world. Georgia has consistently ranked among the worst of U.S. states and more often than not – 60% of the time, according to one recent state estimate – those deaths were preventable.
  • A recent state study estimated new mothers in Georgia were 52% more likely to die in the first year after giving birth than nationally…The situation is far worse for women who live in rural parts of the state or are older than 35.
  • The most glaring disparity is by race. Black mothers in Georgia are three to four times more likely to die than white women,
  • A bipartisan state House committee that studied the deepening crisis recommend that the state extend Medicaid coverage for poor mothers–but broader budget fights threaten to sideline it this legislative session.
Audit: State failing elderly victims of abuse, neglect

Excerpts:

  • A state audit identified damning new evidence that Georgia’s system to protect seniors and vulnerable adults from abuse, neglect and exploitation is failing and the breakdowns are causing additional harm.
  • Investigators from Georgia’s Adult Protective Services system are taking too long to respond to urgent cases
  • APS employees also were rejecting reports that should have been investigated, the audit found.
  • Failures of law enforcement to communicate with APS play prominently in the breakdowns

Below are some of the individual articles, but the page needs to be viewed online for its full impact.
As you  read them, you might be asking, “what kind of human beings would support this morally and intellectually corrupt cretin and advocate his re-election?” Here are six of them:

In Recognition of Georgia Senators’ Chiefs of Staff

//Georgia’s two female Senatorial chiefs of staff: Loyal Trumpists to the end!//

It occurred to IndieDems that probably few average Georgians know that both our United States Senators have female chiefs of staffs: Megan Whittemore for David Perdue and Joan Kirchner Carr for Johnny Isakson. (Her husband is Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, himself a former Isakson aide).  Now, we don’t know exactly how unique this is, since we don’t know how many other Senators have female chiefs of staff. But–let’s celebrate it for what it is, an affirmation of growing women’s power in politics.


Joan Kirchner Carr                    Megan Whittemore

In fact, IndieDems thought it was a good time to give credit where credit is due by devoting a post to how these two achieving females have joined their bosses in showing unqualified loyalty to their President, Donald Trump. Their fidelity has not wavered, even as Trump critics point out that he is unique in being the only President who has reached this chronological point in his term without ever gaining at least a 50 percent approval rating.

Along the way, Whittemore and Carr have given their stamp of approval to Trump’s bragging about sexually assaulting women and calling various women bimbo, fat, ugly horse-faced, of low intellect, Pocahontas, and dog.  Whittemore and Carr, of course, have also stood by Trump despite his demeaning the military service of John McCain, lying about Barack Obama’s birthplace, making 12,000 other false or misleading statements, locking up migrant children in wire cases, having words of praise for neo-fascist demonstrators marching through Charlottesville chanting “Jews will not replace us,” and mocking a handicapped person.

Out intention to bring you up to date on Whittemore/Carr’s endorsement of Trump’s recent words and deeds that have led many to conclude that he is psychologically unhinged has been made easier by Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank. His column Let’s ‘gut check’ all of Trump’s vulgar, unpresidential statements provides the item-by-item list of Trump’s actions that Whittemore and Carr have accepted as normal.

________________________________________________________________________________________/

Let’s ‘gut check all of Trump’s vulgar, unpresidential statements
by Dana Milbank
It was an exemplary week for presidential misbehavior.

  • President Trump had an international tantrum over Denmark’s refusal to sell him Greenland.
  • He invoked the anti-Semitic trope that American Jews have a dual loyalty to Israel.
  • He proclaimed himself the Messiah.
  • Along the way, he used shooting victims for self-promotion, said he wanted a medal for military valor, and more.
In this divided land, there is broad agreement on one thing: Our president is unpresidential.A Post/ABC News poll released last month found that two-thirds of Americans find Trump “unpresidential” and only 28 percent say his actions are “fitting and proper.” Trump himself has acknowledged that some of his behavior is “not at all ‘Presidential’.”


Carr & Whittemore say: Re-elect that man President!

It’s hard to say for sure whether Trump was more undignified this week compared with most others. This is, after all, a man who boasted publicly about his genitals, uses words such as “bull—-,” “p—y,” “goddamn” and “little Schitt” in public, misspells tweets, talks of women bleeding, proclaims himself a “stable genius” with a “very large brain,” “fell in love” with North Korea’s dictator, paid hush money to a porn actress, shoved a prime minister, wore an ill-fitting vest to visit Queen Elizabeth and praised the “shape” of France’s first lady.

He also let Kanye West loose in the Oval Office, prayed for higher ratings for “The Apprentice” at a prayer breakfast , spoke of “raking” forests, hugged an American flag, dragged toilet paper from his shoe, suggested the Clintons murdered Jeffrey Epstein, described neo-Nazis as “very fine people,” and, when told by a rape victim that the Islamic State killed her family, replied: “Where are they now?”


Carr & Whittmore say: Re-elect that man President!

But maybe there is a way to calibrate vulgarity. Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler and his team have documented more than 12,000 false or misleading statements by Trump using the Pinocchio system: from one Pinocchio for “shading” facts to four for “whoppers.” Rare, unexpectedly true statements earn a Geppetto.

Instead of a fact check, I propose a “gut check” of how unpresidential Trump is. Instead of Geppetto and Pinocchio, this uses Beauty and the Beast. Where Kessler’s work is objective and researched, this will be arbitrary and slapdash — like Trump’s policies.

  • One Beast: Routinely unpresidential.
  • Two Beasts: Extra gross, vulgar, narcissistic.
  • Three Beasts: Downright beastly, uncouth, uncivilized.
  • Four Beasts: A wild rumpus. We weep for our country.

On the rare instances when he behaves in a “presidential” manner (usually a teleprompter is involved), he will be assigned a “Beauty.”

This week, the Gut Checker awards Trump one Beast each for:

  • ● Again describing the “evil” free press with the Stalinist phrase “Enemy of the People.”
  • ● Promoting Sean Spicer on “Dancing With the Stars.”
  • ● Boasting about breaking Elton John’s crowd-size record.
  • ● Badgering the Federal Reserve chairman he appointed as the “enemy” and “a golfer who can’t putt.”
  • ● Describing Fox News’s Juan Williams as “pathetic,” sycophantic, “nasty and wrong.”
  • Threatening not to let Fox News host a presidential debate because he didn’t like his favorite network’s latest poll.
  • ● Threatening to release Islamic State fighters into Germany and France.
  • ● Claiming Google “manipulated” some 16 million votes in 2016.

All routine breaches of decorum for Trump. All unpresidential.


Based on their track record, Carr & Whittmore say: “We
just love our unpresidential President!”

The Gut Checker awards two Beasts each for:

  • ● Telling reporters he might not vacate the White House for “maybe 10 or maybe 14” years — regardless of what the Constitution says; and using imaginary powers to say U.S. companies are “hereby ordered” to find alternatives to Chinese markets.
  • ● Resuming his attacks on four nonwhite women in Congress, mocking one’s “tears” and accusing her of being “violent.”
  • ● Calling former aide Anthony Scaramucci a “highly unstable ‘nut job’ ” and a “mental wreck” guilty of “gross incompetence.”


Carr & Whittmore say: We look forward to four additional years of this!

Three Beasts:

  • ● Saying hospitalized victims of mass shootings paid tribute to him. “They love their president,” he said, in an “unparalleled” way. “They were pouring out of the rooms. The doctors were coming out of the operating rooms.”
  • ● Expressing desire to receive the Medal of Honor, the highest award for valor against an enemy force, despite draft deferments for bone spurs. “I wanted one, but they told me I don’t qualify. . . . I’d say, ‘Can I give it to myself anyway?’ They said, ‘I don’t think that’s a good idea.’ ”
  • Tweeting the words of a racist conspiracy theorist who said Israelis view Trump like “the King of Israel” and “the second coming of God.” He later claimed he’s “the chosen one.”


Carr & Whittmore say: Four more years! Four more years!

Four Beasts:

  • ● Canceling his trip to Denmark and twice calling its prime minister “nasty” because she labeled as “absurd” Trump’s absurd plan to buy Greenland.
  • ● Accusing nearly 80 percent of American Jews of ignorance or “great disloyalty,” and after an outcry by Jewish leaders, repeating the slander.

One week, zero beauties and 31 beasts — a full herd and, by any measure, an impressive stable of rude, crude and undignified behavior. But if we as a nation can agree that our president is unpresidential, experience should also allow us to agree on this: Next week might well be worse.


Carr & Whittmore say: Somebody’s got to tell it like it is!

_________________________________________________________________________________________________/

IndieDems comment: We believe you will agree with us. Joan Kirchner Carr and Megan Whittemore represent the very epitome of Republican Woman 2019. They reflect the heart and soul of the Republican Party. The Party would not be what it is today without women like them. No matter how many racist, misogynist, xenophobic, white nationalist statements Trump might make, he can count on the Joans and Megans of the world to remain his faithful subalterns. After all, it takes a  real man to call those shithole countries what they are–and to call for sending those four Congresswomen back to them.

GOP Mouthpiece: Use Defense Budget as Pork Barrel

//The more unhinged Trump’s statements become, the more GA Republicans rally to his side//

Republicans view the Washington post as second only to the New York Times as a purveyor of “fake news,” meaning, anything that differs with what Republicans think. But two of the Post’s regular columnists, Marc Theissen and Hugh Hewitt, are gushing supporters of Donald Trump. Hewitt recently reached new heights of propaganda with an article titled “How the Navy could be torpedoing Trump’s chances in 2020.” Hewitt unabashedly calls for the use of the Navy’s budget as pork barrel to help Trump’s re-election prospects in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

In our comments, IndieDems points out how this naked call to use the defense budget as Republican pork barrel is a perfect fit for the rest of the Trumpist agenda. We also seize the opportunity to again recognize Georgia Republican leaders support for that agenda:

IndieDems supposes a decision by the Trumpists to openly declare that the defense budget is just one big pork barrel bonanza was inevitable, given the fact that:

1) This is already the most corrupt administration in our history—and the more evidence that piles up establishing that fact, the more corruption Trump and his benighted followers commit. Without shame.

 
Senator Johnny Isakson 
Based on his track record,
Isakson says: I don’t give a fig
about corruption. I intend to endorse
everything Trump has said or
done by avidly supporting his
re-election.

2) The Trumpists have sent the federal debt spiraling out of control, with not one iota of a plan to bring it under control


Senator David Perdue
Based on his track record,
Perdue says: Who cares about
deficits? I intend to endorse
everything Trump has said or
done by avidly supporting his
re-election.

3) The tax cut for the rich that was supposed to be the spark that ignited massive investment in our economic future has failed miserably to achieve its goal. Our corrupt corporate class has spent most of it on buying back their companies stocks, sending their stock prices upward and thereby enriching their own pockets. And even this con game seems to have run out of steam.


Rep. Barry Loudermilk
Based on his track record,
Loudermilk says: We need more
tax cuts for the rich! That’s why
I endorse everything Trump
has said or done and will avidly
support his re-election.

4) Most craven of all, Trump and the Republicans are now overtly espousing a racist, xenophobic, white nationalist, Islamaphobic agenda as the basis of their 2020 campaign strategy.

           
Sen. Isakson      Sen. Perdue             Rep. Loudermilk
Based on their track record, Georgia’s three stooges
say: racism, xenophobia, white nationalism, Islamaphobia?
Music to our ears! More than ever, we intend to support
Trump’s re-election.

All of this depredation presided over by a warped and twisted demagogue, a serial liar and adulterer, who lives In daily contempt of God’s 10 Commandments and Jesus’ Golden Rule. Someone who more and more mirror images Adolph Hitler in his capacity for evil.

So it’s not surprising that some little Trump lackey like Hugh Hewitt now openly tells us that Republicans view the defense budget as pork to bolster their election prospects.

Trump, McConnell Make Light of Political Murder. More GOP Mayhem.

//Republicans incitement to, and commitment of, violence continues to grow//

At a May rally in Panama City Beach, Fla., Trump delivered his usual lying rant about how the migrants on our southern border were staging an “invasion” of the United States.  He lamented, “How do you stop these people?” A voice from the crowd called out. “Shoot them!”

Access the video here

The audience laughed and cheered. Trump smiled and joined in the revelry, treating this call for murder as a harmless joke. Shrugging off the suggestion, he quipped, “Only in the Panhandle can you get away with that statement.”

IndieDems will waste no time deconstructing this incident. You either understand it as indicative of the depraved attitude of Trump and his minions, or you don’t. Any average, decent American felt a chill run up their spine. Especially when they remembered that this is the same Trump who, in several of his presidential rallies in 2016, openly incited his followers to violence.

Not  to be outdone, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (“Moscow Mitch”) joined in the hilarity over political assassination–two days after the El  Paso and Dayton massacres:

Mitch McConnell campaign tweets image of tombstone with opponent’s name
Not to be outdone, a McConnell supporter joined in doing what Republican do:
McConnell Supporter Chokes Cutout of Ocasio-Cortez
But wait! There’s more from our super patriots:
GOP leader spends day after mass shootings smearing Democrats with ugly lies about murder
Montana Man Assaults 13-year- old boy for “disrespecting the national anthem”

“Don’t Get Complacent. Things Really Are that Bad Under Trump”

//Spelling out the moral & intellectual bankruptcy of the Republican Party//

Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor of the Washington Post, today published a column that so cogently and eloquently sums up the colossal moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the Republican Party, we post it here in its entirety, hoping for forgiveness for what ever copyright rules we may have violated.

As you read, remember: every horror that Hiatt describes is endorsed by Georgia Senators Isakson and Perdue and Representative Barry Loudermilk as the essence of good government. They like it so much, they are eager to re-elect Trump to continue doing it for four more years.

And to counter the inevitable Republican allegations that this is just more “fake news,” we provide at the  end of the the article some names of the plethora of real conservatives and even some Republicans who condemn the Trumpists  better than any liberal.

Don’t get complacent. Things really are that bad under Trump
by Fred Hiatt

The economy is humming. We’re not at war (much). So he can’t be that bad, right?

Steadfast NeverTrumpers may find it hard to believe, but I’m hearing that argument more and more lately, as people try to come to terms with the possibility of a second Trump term. It’s the “normalization” we’ve been warned about since Donald Trump’s ascension, but in a different form than we might have expected.

After all, many of the people telling themselves that things aren’t “that bad” insist they are as offended as ever by the racist tweets and sexist taunts. They’d prefer someone more civil in the Oval Office, of course.

But . . . the government, and the world, carry on. He insults our allies, but they remain on our side. He imposes tariffs, but unemployment stays low. He threatens defaults, but the debt ceiling is raised. Maybe, people think, a second term wouldn’t be the end of the world.

I’d argue such complacency is not justified. First, because a second term could be a lot more dangerous than the first. There would be more Trump judges on the courts to validate his lawlessness, no Jim Mattis or (God help us) Jeff Sessions in the Cabinet to curb his authoritarian whims, no worries of voter anger to restrain his bellicosity. A second mandate surely would embolden him; at worst, we could find that his jokes about a third term were no joke.

But complacency is misplaced also because — and here’s where the normalization comes in — things are that bad, even now. If people discount the damage, it’s due to a combination of fatigue and relief: fatigue, because it’s almost impossible to maintain outrage when the outrages are so incessant; and relief, because we are constantly aware that things could be worse.

Take North Korea’s missile launches last week, for example. Congress and the media would be scorching any other president right now for allowing North Korea to continue its nuclear and military buildup unimpeded. But we are so grateful that Trump has not blustered and stumbled into a war — into “fire and fury” — that we bite our tongues.

It’s the same around the world: Our ankle-high expectations for the man keep us from noticing how completely he is meeting those expectations. Our two key allies in East Asia, Japan and South Korea, are at loggerheads; a marginally competent president would be helping to mend fences.

Our most important allies in Europe are spinning apart as Britain plunges toward a disastrous Brexit; a normal president would be helping our friends salvage something workable for the future.‘

When Ebola emerged in West Africa, the Obama administration mobilized; now Ebola is spinning out of control in Congo, and the United States is absent. A Darfur-scale tragedy has unfolded among the Rohingya in Myanmar, also known as Burma; Trump doesn’t know who they are. A human rights violation of epic scale has taken shape in western China — the cultural genocide of an entire people, with as many as 3 million people in concentration camps — and Trump takes no notice. Journalists are murdered and imprisoned, and Trump sides with their murderers and jailers.

To the world, it is not just Trump taking these positions. It is America. The damage will be long-lasting.

And his ignorance and cynicism reverberate through some of the biggest stories of our time: the confidence of authoritarian strongmen in China, Russia and beyond; their distortion of technology from a liberating force into a malevolent tool of surveillance and suppression; the destructive warming of the climate, which the United States ignores and abets. None of these is easily reversible.

The story is similar, if more familiar, at home. The constant, willful lying; the attacks on the press and on the very idea of truth — these are not harmless. They draw from but also foster a lack of trust that will persist long after his presidency.

So does the racism. So do the ugly attacks on immigrants. So do the contempt for science and the refusal to stand up to foreign attacks on our elections. So do the disparaging of public servants and the casual threats to wield the vast powers of the federal government against perceived political enemies. These things used to be not okay. Now they are okay. There will be no easy return.

Yes, we’ve avoided recession, the nation is (mostly) at peace, the government will not default. Naturally, we are thankful.

But when we need to be thankful for avoiding disaster, we don’t really have so much to be thankful for. Things are that bad. We have a right to expect better.


Conservative Voices Condemn Trumpist Republicans

IndieDems note: We begin with three columns by Max Boot. He is one of the strongest and most prominent of Republicans who left the Party in disgust over its direction under Donald Trump. Boot was a senior foreign policy adviser to John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2007-08, Mitt Romney’s campaign in 2011-12 and Sen. Marco Rubio’s campaign in 2015-16. He spent eight years as a writer and editor at the Wall Street Journal, the last five as op-ed editor. He left the Republican Party because it had become “morally and intellectually bankrupt” under Donald Trump. He wrote a book about his disgust, “The Corrosion of Conservatism: Why I Left the Right.” 

A Conservative Speaks: “Vote against all Republicans. Every single one.”

“Donald Trump Is the Worst Person Ever to be President”

True Conservatives Flee Trumpist Republican Party

  • Steve Schmidt, Republican strategist and former head of McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign: “I renounce my membership in the Republican Party. It is fully the party of Trump.”
  • Schmidt follows in the illustrious footsteps of Post columnist George F. Will, former senator Gordon Humphrey, former representative (and Post columnist) Joe Scarborough, Reagan and Bush (both) aide Peter Wehner, and other Republicans who have left the party.
  • You used to belong to a conservative party with a white-nationalist fringe. Now it’s a white-nationalist party with a conservative fringe. If you’re part of that fringe, what should you do?
  • A vote for the GOP in November (2018) is also a vote for egregious obstruction of justice, rampant conflicts of interest, the demonization of minorities, the debasement of political discourse, the alienation of America’s allies, the end of free trade and the appeasement of dictators.
  • Like postwar Germany and Japan, the Republican Party must be destroyed before it can be rebuilt.
  • Personally, I’ve thrown up my hands in despair at the debased state of the GOP. I don’t want to be identified with the party of the child-snatchers
  • What I can’t respect are head-in-the-sand conservatives who continue to support the GOP by pretending that nothing has changed.
