How about those DAWGS!!!! It is 63 Days to Midterm Election Day!  And Happy Labor Day which marks the “unofficial end of summer” and celebrates the contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.  It also marks the start of many of our favorite fall activities like watching college football and is the official pivot to Midterm Election Day where the campaigns will get into full gear.  

This Labor Day is much different than the one we endured in 2021 where tens of millions of Americans were forced to dramatically changed their work routines and altered their livelihoods. It should not be forgotten as we go into the last quarter of the election countdown that the Democrats do not respect the freedom of choice for the Covid Vaccinations despite screaming from the rooftops “My Body, My Choice” after the overturning of Roe V. Wade.  They also do not respect our Constitutional Rights from wanting to silence our freedom of speech and to have our government deny us the authority of our right to bear arms.   While U.S. Employers added 315,000 workers to their payroll in August, unemployment increased from 3.5% to 3.7% and the average hourly earnings are still rising, a Quinnipiac poll found that Biden’s 40-year-high inflation remains the top issue (27 percent) for Americans heading into the 2022 Midterm Elections. No other issue reached has reached double digits.  Going into this election cycle, I shudder to think if Stacey Abrams was our governor for the last four years. I am grateful that Brian Kemp reopened Georgia by being the first Governor to reopen America.  While we have not yet seen Georgia’s August Job Numbers, they did reach an all-time high in July where there was an increase of more than 12,000 from June and were up almost five percent year over year. Georgia’s jobs numbers continue to climb reinforcing the state’s position as one of the nation’s best places to find employment and do business.  All the more reason to reelect Governor Brian Kemp, elect Burt Jones as Lt. Governor and Bruce Thompson as Georgia’s Labor Commissioner!

Joe Biden Declares War on Conservatives

Last Thursday evening with the U.S. Marines being flanked to look Gestapo-like and standing before an ominous blood-red background casting a shadow Hitler shadow mustache, Joe Biden delivered one of the most divisive speeches in American history and instantly had #PedoHitler reeling on social media.  By attacking half of America and declaring them enemies of the state, Biden described our country being locked in a “battle for the soul of the nation” and said that Conservatives had embraced “an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.” 

For me personally and as I stated on Twitter and Truth Social, “As a Jew & a proud #MAGA who loves the USA, I literally got chills down my spine when seeing @JoeBiden morph as #PedoHitler.  He hijacked the Marines to emulate the Gestapo, used demon lighting & grew a shadow mustache.  Is this how German Jews felt in 1938 before Kristallnacht?” Despite Biden’s lies, we need to all remember that the true enemy of our Republic is the radical left and its progressive agenda that embraces Big Government, censorship, and political violence. For them, the ends justify the means, and they will stop at nothing to destroy this great country. 


Addressing Your Concerns About Konnech’s Proposal to the DeKalb Elections Office

Over the last several days, many of you have reached out to me with concerns regarding the proposal submitted to the DeKalb Voter Registration Elections Office by Konnech for their PollChief® Election Management System.  The proposal was presented at the DeKalb Board of Voter Registration and Elections Board Retreat held on August 20, 2022 – the proposal can be found on pages 30-55.

The apprehension and concerns from many of you stemmed from True the Vote discoveries posted on Truth Social (#thepit and #tiger) and CD Media also posted “DeKalb County wants to Hire Reportedly China Linked Voting Software Company” and in the Kanekoa newsletter. Upon reviewing this information, I reached out to Gregg Philips of True the Vote, L Todd Wood of CD Media and Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots, along with several others.  Additionally, I reached out to our DeKalb Board of Voter Registration and Election Board Representatives – Vice Chairman Nancy Jester and Anthony Lewis to share our concerns with Keisha Smith, Executive Director Voter Registration & Elections – DeKalb County.

Through a series of communications with Ms. Jester and Mr. Lewis, I have been able to confirm that the DeKalb Election Office is intending to use Konnech’s PollChief® Election Management System as follows. 

The system will ONLY be utilized for the following:

  • Poll Worker Scheduling
  • Election Equipment and Asset Management

It will NOT be used for any of the following:

·   Vote Processing

  • Vote Counting

·   Vote Tabulation

·   Poll Worker Employment to include HR and Payroll We made a DIRECT request to DeKalb County – requiring ALL DATA collected to reside and be stored exclusively in the United States.  This request was heard loud and clear by the Election Board and has now been added to the contractual requirements

It’s true our party is seeing huge enthusiasm, but we only win in November if everyone gets involved. Team Up with Team Herschel on September 7th! Meet and Greets for Austin McDonald on September 6th and for Jenine Milum on September 25th! And Canvas for Catherine Bernard on September 10th. Join us the DeKalb GOP Breakfast on 9/17 and Get Out the Vote for Herschel Walker featuring Jenine Milum with Turning Point USA on September 24th And be sure to sign-up for the Advanced Poll Watching Training on September 11th and October 9th!  Please see below for the event details!!
