WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), issued the following statement upon the release of memos that former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey authored and in response to the inspector general’s criminal referral of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Collins is a member of the House Judiciary Committee, which exercises oversight over the Department of Justice and FBI.
“As James Comey himself has insisted time and again, truth and integrity matter enormously, and federal law enforcement must prosecute people who lie to investigators. On this point, I agree with Mr. Comey, and I support the inspector general’s conclusion that Andrew McCabe’s dishonesty during an investigation within his own law enforcement agency warrants a criminal referral.
“Mr. Comey’s memos illustrate that he used different standards in his official work involving President Donald Trump than he applied to his work with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and others. The memo he leaked—in order to effect the appointment of a Special Counsel—reinforces the inconsistency and bias with which he acted as FBI director as well as his willingness to substitute his own judgment for FBI policies. These facts indicate that Mr. Comey is less fettered to objective standards of integrity and the policies of our justice system than his public declarations claim.”

Did it alarm you how fast the Patriot Act appeared to control our lives after the 9/11 attack? When the Tea Party movement started did you ever wonder why Tea Party websites suddenly appeared on the internet, each claiming to be some official TEA Party site requesting donations so they could place our Conservative message in front of those rascally politicians?
I suspect we were duped. Vladimir Lenin said ‘“The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” The Tea party movement materialized because our elected government was doing nothing to protect America and Americans and yet, almost immediately “leaders” suddenly emerged to guide our outrage. They spoke with slick tongues, impressed many of us with their schemes or by confirming out own suspicions and led us willingly where they wanted us to go, harmlessly into the wilderness. Some local TEA party groups did prevail, however.
Were these guides or leaders, in fact agents of either a political party (R) or (D) or government agents of the party in power, or agents of the PAC’s trying to control the message that bodes ill against them. The opposition to our floundering government was controlled. It’s not new, except to us, but governments have been doing it for years. It’s simulated to appear natural and in harmony with common thought but it’s designed to direct us away from the real problems.
It’s truly Social Engineering, the systematic molding and brainwashing of our individual minds so we conform collectively, to group-think and accept their preferred ideology. Consider our “Snowflake” college students today, looking for safe spaces, denying opposition ideas that confront them and demanding exclusion of all opposing thought. Controlled opposition turns a captive audience into a controlled sheep herd with an accepted socialized message.
In institutions, like colleges, small groups can infiltrate non progressive clubs and organizations
and change the perception of reality. Programming doesn’t take long for educational systems, the media, or an entire nation, to be demoralized within a span of one generation. Controlled opposition exists to subvert and undermine “Truth Movements” all to protect the Establishment.
Once subverted, new ideas are not accepted or believed. Evidence to the contrary is drowned out and they win. Those who do not fall in line, or stand up against the message, are quickly squashed. Humanity, as we knew it, has become powerless, unable to defend itself or the country. The appearance of freedom is illusionary where both sides of a debate are controlled from the top. Natural disasters or acts of terrorism become another chance for opportunists to talk us out of our freedoms. They frame the debate as “for or against.”
The agents of this controlled opposition subverts everyone who listens. Run for Congress and they surround the winner, pounding in the party line with promises of committee chairmanships, influence and cash as the rewards to go along. The Tea party’s are maligned, investigated and infiltrated by the establishments agents as enemies of the state and side tracked.
When at least three generations have been so indoctrinated through social engineering, it only becomes possible to end the charade by exposing it and refusing to participate. We are there right now. We must take back the agenda. If we don’t, then we are indeed lost and no one will trust the message or the messenger. Who can trust the FBI today? They were made agents of Controlled Opposition and have been exposed. Where and when does it end?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. (12Mar18)
“Agriculture is Georgia’s largest economic driver and our farmers are the backbone of the industry”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) is taking action to preserve important loans used by farmers to start and grow their operations.
“Agriculture is Georgia’s largest economic driver and our farmers are the backbone of the industry,” said Senator Perdue. “Whether our farmers are just starting out or are looking to expand and improve, it’s critical they have the financial flexibility they need to get their farms up and running. I’m proud to work on strengthening this important loan program for our country’s farmers.”
The bipartisan Farm Service Agency Loan Flexibility Act, sponsored by Senator Perdue and Senator Gary Peters (D-MI), would provide the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) with the authority it needs to issue approved loans during times of high demand and irregular funding from Congress. FSA’s operating loans are used by beginning farmers, women and minorities, and other disadvantaged borrowers for expenses such as livestock, equipment, and seed, while ownership loans help farmers develop land.
“For many farmers—and new farmers in particular—access to capital is a top issue, and in years past, the inability of FSA to lend to farmers in need because of loan program caps has been problematic for our industry,” said Gerald Long, President of Georgia Farm Bureau. “Georgia Farm Bureau is pleased that Senator Perdue (R-GA) has chosen to lead on this issue and many other agriculture issues in Congress.”
(Martin, Georgia) – Monday, January 22nd, the statewide Georgia affiliate of Our Revolution, the organization created to continue pushing the policy goals of the Bernie Sanders Presidential Campaign, endorsed Joshua McCall in his bid to unseat Congressman Doug Collins in the Georgia 9th Congressional District. His candidacy will now be passed up to the national organization for consideration.
“I’m running for congress for two reasons. First, Bernie Sanders’ grassroots organization inspired me to examine what forces were limiting political possibilities in our country. I realized, unfortunately, that many of those forces were in the party that I belonged to,” said Candidate Joshua McCall.
He continued, “I’m also running because parts of our government are dangerously close to fascism. Branches of it prey on racial fears and offer simple solutions through state violence. I am running not only to unseat Doug Collins, but in the process speak to the people of this district and unite them behind a Christian and humanist ethic.”
McCall joins Savannah based candidate Lisa Ring as the only currently endorsed congressional candidates in the state. The endorsement includes volunteer coordination and the possibility of national endorsement and fundraising.
Our Revolution Georgia State Committee Member, Vice President of the Young Democrats of Georgia, Hall County Board of Elections Member, and former candidate for State House Michelle Sanchez Jones said of the endorsement, “the Republican Party has purported to represent North Georgia for a generation now, and, outside of the Governor’s backyard, we deserve more from our government. Our hospitals need more money. Our classrooms need more teachers. We need the tools to help those struggling with opioid addiction. The burden of supporting our communities falls disproportionately on our churches and faith institutions. It’s time we got our money’s worth from Washington, and Joshua McCall is exactly the man to help make that happen.”
Background: Consideration of endorsement by the national organization requires prior endorsement from a local affiliate. Our Revolution has numerous affiliates throughout the state whose leadership jointly approve endorsements – with deference given to the chapter closest to the district in question. McCall’s endorsement represents the agreement of affiliates and leadership from Savannah to Atlanta, Athens to Henry County.

Most thinking Georgians will no doubt agree that only illegal aliens require classification as “deferred action on deportation” or who may be under deportation orders from the federal government.
Most Georgians will be surprised to learn that Georgia’s Department of Drivers Services (DDS), the agency responsible for our driving and ID credentials, has issued, renewed or replaced more than 50,000 driver’s licenses and/or official state ID Cards to illegal aliens. These illegal aliens have either “deferred action on deportation” proceedings or are already under federal deportation orders. And that issuance of these official state documents is perfectly legal under current federal and state law.
Surprisingly, the 2005 federal REAL ID Act, passed after the horror of 9/11 says that states can optionally issue drivers licenses to illegals with “deferred action on deportation” and that the feds will allow this ID to be used to board airliners. The law says that “deferred action” is “evidence of lawful status” for federal acceptance of driver’s licenses as an official ID. The REAL ID Act guidelines from the feds are merely minimum requirements and standards for federal recognition – not legal requirements.
Georgia state law currently also allows “deferred action” illegals to get an official Georgia driver’s license and ID card. Surprisingly, but factually, Georgia has more illegals than Arizona.
In 2012 the Associated Press ran a news article headlined “Some illegal immigrants can get Georgia drivers licenses” explaining Georgia’s California-like situation. But, if you call your local DDS office, you will be told in – no uncertain terms – that “Georgia does not issue drivers licenses or ID Cards to illegal or undocumented immigrants.” Confusing, isn’t it? Many Georgia legislators think DDS should try harder to explain this scenario and how it is that DDS is issuing driver’s licenses to illegals.
Again, federal law does not say we must issue drivers licenses and ID cards to deferred action illegals. Instead, each state has the right to decide to whom it issues drivers licenses or ID Cards. And, importantly, Georgia officials also have the right to decide on the physical appearance of these credentials.
This brings me to the fact that the drivers licenses and ID Cards Georgia’s DDS gives to illegal aliens with “deferred action on deportation” are exactly like the ones we issue to legal immigrants, student visa holders and guest workers such as Mercedes Benz and KIA executives here from Germany and Korea, all who entered the United States legally.
This policy can and must be changed.
Georgia has the choice to issue a driver’s license to those with deferred action that will still allow them to drive, but that does not fit the federal requirements to be used as “ID for federal purposes” – like boarding an airliner or entering a federal building. And we can – and I firmly believe we must – change the appearance of these credentials so that no one will mistake the holder for a legal immigrant or a legitimate guest worker here on a legal temporary visa.
Currently at least two states, California and Michigan, issue multiple tiers of drivers licenses. The lower tiers are not recognized as federally approved ID and cannot be used as such. But the bearer can still drive.
I would use Mexico as another example here but Mexico does not allow any illegal aliens to obtain any type of driver’s license.
Georgia already issues a distinctly different driver’s license to young Americans that is vertically oriented and clearly marked “under 21.”
Realizing the United States is not going to be as strict as Mexico, Georgia should issue a vertically oriented ID, like we do for young drivers, to illegals with “deferred action on deportation” or who have been ordered deported, despite that the feds say we are not required to do so.
My bill, HB 484, pending in the Georgia Gold Dome requires DDS to end its current practice and to replace the driving and ID credentials now issued to illegal aliens with a vertically oriented, brightly colored card. This new ID card is designed to make it unmistakably and visually clear that the bearer is not a legal immigrant and that the ID is not acceptable for federal ID purposes. It would look something like the mock up pictured here.
Georgians will also be surprised to learn that many state legislators are not well educated on this topic. Because I introduced this measure late in the 2017 session, it has not had a committee hearing and is in need of legislative co-sponsors. Readers who agree this idea adds some sanity to our driver’s license and ID Card integrity should ask their House member to sign on as co-sponsors and support my bill, HB 484. This is vitally important for the State of Georgia.

9th Congressional district Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) spoke exclusively to FYNTV on Friday’s edition of Good Morning From the Office. Collins spoke on a multitude of issues, from the executive actions regarding Obamacare, to his personal crusade for adequate internet service and competition in rural Northeast Georgia. However, his remarks regarding tax reform were quite revealing. According to Collins, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has informed House members that he will keep the House in session, if necessary, throughout the Christmas recess in order to pass tax reform.
The tax question is asked around the 11:00 minute mark of the FULL INTERVIEW below.
BKP: From the House side, will we get tax reform?
Rep. Collins: Yes. I feel very comfortable, in fact, it is the top priority for us in leadership, and the speaker. In fact, the speaker put us on notice yesterday (Thursday) that he would keep us through Christmas or any other holiday to make sure it gets done this year. It was very disturbing to hear some members of the Senate saying “Well, we gotta negotiate, it may be the first of the year” No. It’s time to get behind the American people, time to get behind the President and pass tax reform. It’s way past due.
We’ve been saying for months the the strategy from the Trump/Bannon team would be to take down establishment Republicans. As you’re all well aware, the Democrats have several vulnerable candidates. But, what good does it do to replace them with establishment Republicans? Let’s look at the case of Joe Manchin.
People in West Virginia love Joe Manchin, the last popular Democrat governor. Yet, things have changed there, and our sources tell us that Republicans have even tried to flip Joe Manchin to the Republican side. Yet, he refuses to do so because he is a lifelong Democrat.
BKP can relate, his grandparents in West Virginia were hardcore Democrats. They never had nice things to say about Republicans and when his Dad became a Republican it didn’t go over well. Eventually though, his Grandmother left the Dems. When asked why she switched, she said “because my kids became Republicans.” But, she was scared to admit it to people. This is a microcosm of how the Manchin family has DEEP, DEEP Democrat roots in West Virginia for multiple generations.
Remember these quotes?
“If you want to open a coal plant you can but we will bankrupt it” -Barrack Obama
“We want to put coal companies out of business!” – Hillary Clinton
Well that helps to explain the losses Democrats have suffered in places like West Virginia. And, although the media and Democrats are doing their best to slowly pick off the Trump cabinet, it isn’t going to work. It won’t work because Trump is playing chess while they’re playing checkers. Trump is sticking to his agenda.
Just look at Scott Pruitt, who is rolling back the EPA rules from the Obama Era. The Left and Liberals are beside themselves claiming it pushes the Federal Government further away from combating Global Warming. Trump is doing what he can himself to keep his campaign promises. However, when it comes to Congress his “pen is dry.” Anything that requires action from Congress cannot get done because the Republicans in Congress have failed. So why should we choose a Democrat turned Republican like Evan Jenkins?
Don’t panic: It’s not like the voters are going to suddenly vote in Democrats. Everyone who tries to run on “not voting for tax cuts, better insurance, etc. because Trump sent a tweet and it made me mad,” will lose badly. Just like we said before, Bannon left just in time to run Primary Opponents against every Republican (save Ted Cruz). Bannon and Trump know that it is going to take a long time before they can truly “drain the swamp.”
