Georgia GOP House candidate Ellen Diehl: “Understanding Islam—If you’re not Islamic, they want to kill you”

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman In case you missed it, see Raw Diehl of the Day #1: Ellen Diehl and the global witches’ coven Raw Diehl of the Day #2 I’m posting videos that Georgia House District 81 candidate and ardent Trump fan Ellen Diehl deleted from her YouTube channel after I published a blog post about them and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution picked up on the story. I’m looking through them again, and this one … is interesting. Posted on Wed. May 31, 2017, it contains a drifting riff about Donald Trump and Russia. Spoiler alert: It didn’t happen! (Note: Today, Trump campaign aide Georga Papadopoulos was sentenced after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. His drunken bragging about Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton is…

Georgia GOP House candidate Ellen Diehl and the global witches’ coven

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Raw Diehl of the Day #1 This isn’t one of her greatest hits, but since she deleted them, we’re gonna play ’em all! Choice Cuts (at 1:24) “Then later, Zeresh says to her husband Haman, ‘You better stop trying to go against Mordecai because God is with him, it will be fatal to continue opposing him. So, the left, it will be fatal for them to continue opposing Donald Trump. I mean it. I’m so, so, so, so serious.” (at 2:20) In her prayer from protection for Donald Trump and his administration, Diehl adds, “That we would pray protection over ourselves against this nnNnnnnNnnnn (makes gesture) global witches’ coven that is trying to create pandemonium and wreak havoc on…

Raw Diehl: Anti-Muslim Trumper ditches extreme rhetoric in race against Georgia Rep. Scott Holcomb

Update: After the Atlanta Journal Constitution linked to this post and published an excerpt in The Jolt (last item)  those YouTube videos were deleted. Sad! But here’s the one I originally posted (see description later in blog post) as an MP4 file:   Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Question: If you’re a proud deplorable who believes—among other things—that Barack Obama is a corrupt Muslim terrorist with a fat-assed ugly wife, how do you campaign against a popular Democratic incumbent in a state House District where Trump received only 35 percent of the vote? By cutting the crazy talk? Sounds like a plan. Just one problem: the videos. All about the Donald “I was a huge Trump supporter,” Ellen Diehl said in one of her…

Brian Kemp takes credit for keeping Randolph Polls open

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman For the past couple of weeks, the Randolph County Election Board’s plan to close 7 of 9 polling places in the majority black county has been big news not just in Georgia but all over the U.S. and even internationally. The controversy built to a crescendo yesterday with the firing of the elections consultant who came up with this incredibly stupid idea. The Board’s 2-0 vote this morning was anticlimactic, especially since the county attorney had already said, “I would be the most surprised person in Georgia if this passed.” Dead, for this election cycle. Enter stage far-right: Georgia Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, to claim credit for being a champion of democracy. I was the first…

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman The local Board of Elections has come under fire for its plan to shut down 7 of 9 polling places in majority-black Randolph County in Southwest Georgia, infamous for its history of voter suppression and racial discrimination.

Even the owners want out of the Plant Vogtle Boondoggle

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Here’s the latest on the Plant Vogtle disaster from the AJC: The survival of those two new nuclear reactors under construction at Plant Vogtle just got more complicated. The electrical membership coop run by the city of Jacksonville, Fla., wants out of the deal. Here’s why that matters: Earlier this month, we got the news that the cost of the two reactors had gone up by $2.3 billion – only a few months after the state Public Service Commission approved the lower amount. The full price of the Vogtle upgrade is now $27 billion, double what was originally estimated and five years behind schedule. The increase requires investors in the project to re-affirm their decision to move forward by Sept. 30. Georgia…
