Who is behind the new voter suppression laws in Georgia and why??

It seems that every time any official of the Georgia state government is asked about it, from the Governor to the Secretary of State and others, they say it is not "suppression" but there are some things they did not agree with? If they did not agree with it, why is it in the new laws?

I think the answer may be sitting somewhere in Mar-a-Lago? We know that he disagreed with all the state officials about the vote count in the last election, which he lost. He is now proposing a challenger for the Republican Secretary of State, Raffensperger.

But why??

Could it have anything to do with the criminal charges pending from the election? Is someone trying to send a message to those in power in Georgia? Are they attempting to intimidate the elected officials of Georgia to do their bidding?

In my opinion, it is the state charges that Trump is most concerned with, not any Federal charges. (Even though that is the big elephant in the room. Sedition and inciting an insurrection.)

However, either Party would probably hesitate to bring any charges against any President or ex-President, for fear of doing great harm to our Republic. What will Merrick Garland do? The public sentiment would need to be on his side.

But, State Courts are not so prohibited. An independent Attorney General could decide to follow the law and let the people, through our jury system, make the decision? There are rumors that charges could come as early as next week?

One Way Out

"Political persecution"?

Is that why the "former guy" is remaining involved in politics? So long as he can maintain part of his base, he can claim that he is being "politically persecuted" whenever he is charged with multiple crimes?

He believes if he has people standing behind him, he can never be convicted? If people support him, then he must be innocent? It is all politics and fake media.

Is that the direction the "former guy" is headed?

(In a FOX interview the other day, he said that the Capitol "insurrectionists" were being persecuted)

Who are these "insurrectionists"?

Are they victims of a cult or are they hardcore criminals?

Tim Miller, on Dateline:White House, hits the nail on the head.

They were discussing the Big Lie and how Trump tried to spin it on FOX News. They were talking about how Mick Mulvaney and Ron Johnson and others were trying to spin the attack on January 6th.

Tim Miller pointed out, I think correctly, that they had to minimize and spin the attack on our Capitol or they would have no political future. They have to make their supporters believe that it was no big deal. They were invited in by the cops for hugs and kisses. There were very few that participated in any violence. Trump supporters have to believe that it never really happened.

They really only have to persuade their base. That is all they need to control the Republican Party.

Laying the groundwork for another violent act?

It has been almost three months since the violent attack upon our Capitol. On the surface, a lot has returned to normal in our nation's Capitol. They have even taken down the razor-blade concertina.

But, when the culprits saw that the Justice Department was in no hurry to charge or indict the leaders of the insurrection, or more accurately (the attempted coup), they are gathering their supporters together once again.

(But, it is not likely they will attack the Capitol the next time. It is more probable that they would attempt to attack and take over various state houses.)

What's next? Rudy Giuliani makes an appearance in public to certify Donald Trump's attempt to re-gather his "army" of violent supporters that came to Washington on his initial request? And what did he mean by "trial by combat"?

Is the FBI moving quickly enough to stop this new conspiracy? Should they be charging any of those leaders at the rally, before the call to march to the Capitol? We all saw the video. We know what happened.

Opinion: Nothing will be done about the filibuster unless Democrats take 4 or 5 more Senate seats...

...in the elections of 2022.

I think that may be the political reality?

Just my opinion.

"Well, what about so-and-so and why didn't they do something about it??"

Common Questions of Republicans

"But what about those gangs out in Washington?" (They are worse than the people that attacked our Capitol and killed and threatened the inhabitants.)

"It's worse than a disaster....why doesn't Joe Biden do something about it?" (As if the immigrants do not listen to FOX, CNN, and MSNBC, or have not heard about it)

It's always somebody else's fault. Every problem is someone else's creation and responsibility.

They can only criticize. They do not offer solutions.
