(R) Karen Handel seems to be doing exactly what is necessary to get out the Republican vote in the 6th district. (D) Jon Ossoff has to spend the next two months convincing the Democrats just to go back to the polls. On the other hand Handel has to get every registered Republican vote she can; regardless of who they voted for last week or in the Presidential primary election. Within the next two months it won’t be hard to bump into a well known Republican in the 6th district. Handel has received endorsements from almost every single Republican. From her one time rival Governor Nathan Deal to what some consider controversial President Donald Trump.
BKP questioned last week what Karen Handel would do concerning Donald Trump voters. Would she embrace President Trump during her campaign or listen to the media and turn down the possibility to campaign with The President?
During an interview on CNN, Handel shared her conversation with The President stating “He just called to say congrats and encourage me and let me know as we go into June 20, it’s all hands on deck for Republicans.” When asked if she thought Mr. Trump might come down and campaign with her, Handel responded, “I would hope so,” adding, “I don’t think this is about any one person.”
The 6th Congressional district race could set the tone for the 2018 midterms. For Republicans the 6th district will look like a real “who’s who.” But who will the Democrats send to help Jon Ossoff in this important race; Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, or maybe even Maxine Waters.
Will (R) Karen Handel embrace or distance herself from President Donald Trump? Will Trump voters come out and vote for Karen Handel? How hard will Dan Moody, Judson Hill, and Bob Gray work to convince their voters to vote for Karen Handel? If Fulton County is the Republican stronghold of the district then why did Ossoff get 41,269 votes? Ossoff received almost as many votes in Fulton County as Gray, Handel and Moody combined. Donald Trump is President of the United States because he did not used the “Republican Playbook.” By using the playbook the Republicans almost lost the 6th district. When will Republicans learn to throw the playbook out the window – Trump style?
Boris Johnson, Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs called the British-Trump for his Conservative influence upon his home, the United Kingdom.
Will we be seeing more of Boris Johnson in the American media? I think so.
A runoff seems to be certain in the GA 6th Congressionaldistrict special election to replace HHS Secretary Tom Price, taking place today. Democrat Jon Ossoff looks to be guaranteed one of the runoff spots; the second spot will be left open to Republican Dan Moody, Karen Handel, or Bob Gray. If you are tired of all of the commercials and think they will end tonight… Think again. There will be just as many commercials but now it will be narrowed down to just two candidates. So get ready ready for another two months of political campaign ads, because election day is June 20th.
If Ossoff wins at least 40 % of the vote tonight there is a good chance that he will be able to win the election in June to become the new Congressman of the GA 6th. A runoff election is generally won by the opponent that can get their voters back to the polls. Just like most sports; the team that has the momentum wins. It is going to be questionable as to whether the Republicans can coalesce and change the momentum of the game.
If Democrats just take the voter role from tonight, with the amount of money they have coming in nation wide; they will be able to do anything necessary to get the voters back to the polls on June 20th. If the top Republican is only in the area of 20% of the vote tonight they have the challenge of getting that 20% back to the polls in addition to the margin needed to win from the Republicans they ran against. If Karen Handel is the front runner can you really see Bob Gray, Judson Hill, Dan Moody and the rest of the Republicans out begging their voters to return to the polls. BKP sees them half heartedly endorsing her, but not aggressively working for her campaign.
Ossoff has many media outlets to thank for their media coverage, not to mention this morning’s MSNBC’s 15 minute Ossoff infomercial. Morning Joe and Mika Brzezinski spent about 15 minutes talking about President Donald Trump’s poor polling numbers. BKP strongly believes the poor polling report was to lead the voters of the 6th district to believe the country is turning on President Donald Trump. They continued by telling their audience that in less than 100 days of his presidency the American people have tuned him out. That gave Mika a perfect segway into, “Up next: A special election that could spell trouble for the GOP.”
MSNBC’s Political Correspondent, Casey Hunt, proceeded with what we consider a Jon Ossoff infomercial. Hunt dedicated only about 15 seconds of her report to Republicans Bob Gray and Karen Handel. Hunt was even able to find, in her non-biased reporting, a Republican in the district that voted for Jon Ossoff. Republicans go into every election already behind one strike knowing the media is against them.
In today’s segment BKP reminds people of the late Andrew Breitbart’s comments concerning Congressman John Lewis – “The orchestrated lie.” President Donald Trump had the nerve to call John Lewis a liar. Republicans never want to offend anybody, want to play the middle of the road, and know how to lose an election. BKP is concerned that Republicans attacking Ossoff’s youth and fondness for Star Wars, may have been non-beneficial. Did Republicans miss how Star Wars is to all age groups? Maybe Republicans don’t remember a college keg party? REALLY… Democrats are organized. If they win the 6th district, the next stop is winning The House, and the grand finale will be redistricting in 2021. A must watch segment. Republicans beware… This may be offensive… Because it’s the truth!
Do you remember in the 90’s when former President Bill Clinton announced that the United States. had reached an agreement with North Korea to freeze and dismantle their nuclear weapons program? Do you remember when he told us that this agreement would be good for the U.S. and the entire world? Do you remember when he said North Korea would now fully join the world of peaceful nations? Well… How did that work out?
Do you remember when George W. Bush declared North Korea part of the axis of evil and he said “The United States of America will not permit the world’s most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world’s most destructive weapons.” North Korea considered Bushes words just short of declaring war.
Do you remember in 2009 when North Korean soldiers detained two American journalist that had crossed over into North Korea from China without a visa? North Korea agreed to the release of the two journalist but only if Former President Bill Clinton would come personally to meet with Kim Jong-il. Three Presidents, three failed attempts to solve the North Korean crisis.
The Trump Administration has warned Kim Jong-un not to launch anymore test ICBMs. Ignoring the United States’ warnings North Korea had a failed attempt Saturday to launch a missile, which exploded on the pad. North Korea showcased their ICBMs during their founders day parade on Saturday. These ICBMs fitted with nuclear warheads could reach Seoul South Korea, Tokyo Japan, and maybe even the west coast of The United States. I feel sure Secretary of Defence, James “Mad-Dog” Mattis, will bring this North Korean nightmare to an end. Which Clinton, Bush and Obama failed to do.
In this segment we also cover the media trying to figure out “the real Donald Trump.” BKP gives his opinion as to why Trump changed his position on China being a currency manipulator and and NATO no longer being obsolete.
From Wichita, Kansas to Roswell, Georgia – If Democrats have any hopes of recapturing The House of Representatives in 2018 they will need to reconnect with rural America. James Thompson turned out to be the picture perfect Democrat candidate. Thompson opposed Kansas State Treasurer, (R) Ron Estes, for the Kansas 4th Congressional district. This was a special election to replace Mike Pompeo, who is now the CIA Director. Democrats are trying to figure out how to reconnect with voters in the heartland.
Kansas is a very red state, so red that Donald Trump won by 27 percent and Pompeo won reelection to the seat with a 30 percent margin. Questions surround why a Democrat was able to get 48 percent of the vote. Estes won the seat with 53 percent of the vote.
During Thompson’s campaign it was somewhat difficult to recognise he was running as a Democrat. There was noticeable distance between him and the party. Also, what should not go unnoticed is that his campaign highlighted pro-second amendment, veterans, families, government waist, along with most of issues important to middle America. This kind of campaign could easily confuse voters that do not pay attention to part lines. But when it’s over, Thompson is a Democrat. If he had won he would definitely have followed the direction of Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi.
#BKP questions whether the voters in Witchita Kansas did not see Estes as a strong candidate, have already turned against President Donald Trump, or are they holding the Republicans in The House of Representative responsible for not repealing and replacing Obama Care. Democrats will continue to take the temperature of the country as they move towards the 6th district of Georgia, where (D) Jon Ossoff has the lead among 18 candidates. Ossoff’s campaign has approximately 8 million dollars to spend, thanks in large part to the DCCC, MoveOn.org, and liberal publications like the Daily Kos.
Lets to the comparable; A district in Kansas that Trump won by 27 percent, the Republican could only win 53 percent to the Democrat 48 percent. Now fast forward to the 6th district in Georgia, that Trump only carried by 1.5 percent and the Democrat has 10 times more campaign cash to spend than Thompson had in Kansas. If the Democrats win on April 18th it will set the tone for the 2018 elections. If Republicans win it will be just another tax day.
Why did the decision to bomb Syria change everything for some Donald Trump loyalist? Many of Trump’s supporters are asking where is the “America First” policy now? In the opening monologue today, #BKP discusses how foreign policy decisions that President Donald Trump has made does not change his domestic policy agenda.
Trump is negotiating at all times whether it be a meeting with the President of China or a CEO summit at The White House. During the campaign, candidate Donald Trump talked about our trade deficit with China along with them devaluing their money. Trump is the first president that had the nerve to tie North Korea and trade together only using 130 characters, called Twitter. #BKP ties together today all the reasons you should not jump off the “Trump Train”. Going from one meeting to the next Trump works 14 – 16 hours a day. He is not just another scenic railroad like Obama; He is a bullet train Trump. So don’t jump now because you could get hurt.
Watch part two of this segment below.
Does the thought of Nancy Pelosi once again being Speaker of the House terrify you? After the failed attempt to repeal and replace Obama Care the American people put health care squarely on the shoulders of the Republicans. Republicans will need to pass health care, tax reform and fund the construction of a wall on our southern border. April 18th we will find out how much trouble the Republicans may be in with voters. That’s election day in the 6th Congressional District of Georgia. Democrats need 24 seats to take over The House. If their candidate, Jon Ossoff, wins that may put in motion what Democrats hope to be 23 more seats in 2018.

Who will hold The House of Representatives in 2018?
The world is waiting to hear the details from meetings between U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson and his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Last week President Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack on his own people. President Donald Trump responded swiftly by sending 59 tomahawk missiles to hit the air base that Assad used to launch the chemical attack. Russia has troops and military equipment stationed on the airfield hit by the tomahawk missiles.
This obviously has escalated tensions between the two countries than the Cold War era. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the strike on Syria an aggressive act against a sovereign state and violated International Law. Russia and Iran along with other Syrian allies vowed to retaliate against any further strike against Syria. Although Russia denied any knowledge of the gas attack; U.S. Intelligence claims Russia was aware of Assad’s intentions to use chemical weapons.
Recent comments from U.S. UN Secretary, Nikki Haley followed up by Rex Tillerson, leaves many to wonder if The Trump Administration just retaliated for the gas attack or is planning regime change. Tillerson, before leaving to meet Lavrov, made several statements that may lead many to believe that regime change is the only option that Trump will accept.
“It is clear to all of us that the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end,”
“But the question of how that ends and the transition itself could be very important in our view to the durability, the stability inside of a unified Syria.”
“That’s why we are not presupposing how that occurs,”
“We want to relieve the suffering of the Syrian people. Russia can be a part of that future and play an important role,”
“Or Russia can maintain its alliance with this group, which we believe is not going to serve Russia’s interests longer term.”
Tillerson’s quotes obviously state Assad needs to leave along with what I would perceive as an ultimatum for Russia.
Also in our opening monologue today we discuss the tension with North Korea. While we wait to see how China will respond the U.S. is sending the USS Aircraft Carrier Carl Vinson toward the Korean peninsula. Trump has no other choice but to handle this situation considering North Korea’s threats of nuclear attack on America’s western cities.
Rumors continue to swirl around the West Wing that Chief Political Advisor to the President, Steve Bannon and Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus may be on the way out. Bannon seems to battle on the daily basis with Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. On the other hand rumors swirl that Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, may be on the way out and could be replaced with Gary Cohen. It is no secret that Cohen is a Democrat in Trump’s White House. Manhattan liberals including Cohen, Kushner and Ivanka Trump seem to have taken over the West Wing of the White House. In this segment we look at the increase of Jewish influence in the West Wing while people like Kellyanne Conway, Priebus and Bannon get moved aside.
Republicans run the risk of losing The House in 2018 if Bannon, Priebus and Conway are gone from Trump’s Administration. The three are largely responsible for Trump’s Nationalist America First Agenda that brought rural Americans in record numbers to the polls.
After the chemical weapons strike in Syria, by President Bashar al-Assad, President Donald Trump responded by launching 59 tomahawk missiles. The internet world is abuzz with multiple opinions of what really happened:
- Donald Trump sold out to the capitalists.
- The Russians set up the chemical attack so Donald Trump would look good when he retaliated. This would help to show Trump did not have ties to Vladimir Putin.
- The rebels in Syria staged the attack in order to make it look like Assad gassed his own people to get the U.S. involved.
- Dark State/ Globalist/ Council on Foreign Relations.
These are just a few, among many, of the theories that are being used to explain what happened.
Does President Donald Trump have a master plan for peace in the Middle East that includes regime change in Syria? Is it a coincidence that President Trump first met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, then meets with Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, followed by King Abdullah II of Jordan, and lastly Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi? Immediately after Trump finalizes meetings with these Middle Eastern countries, Syrian President launches a chemical attacks that the U.S. responds to – Coincidence?
