Marjorie Taylor Greene said from the House floor that her time at South Forsyth High School shaped her views on guns at school. In those formative years, her county was entirely white & the site of angry protests against Blacks trying to integrate Forsyth.…
In Marjorie Taylor Greene's senior year, the county slowly started diversifying. Today, Forsyth is 72% white, 13% Asian/South Asian, 10% Hispanic & nearly 5% Black (vs. 10% Black in 1912). Just 2 weeks ago, a county-approved marker was unveiled near the site of the 1912 lynching.
Marjorie Taylor Greene later moved to Fulton County, and after failing to win support for the Republican nomination in Georgia's 6th Congressional District for 2020, she abruptly moved to NW Georgia right before her successful campaign to win her seat in the 14th District.
She referenced the 1990 hostage situation at S. Forsyth:…

Volatility continues with $gme and $amc in the popular uprising against #hedgefunds that shorted these #stonks. Both Game Stop & AMC plummeted after some retail traders were locked out.
Best explanation I’ve seen. Author unknown.
I don''t have hard numbers, which is why I used the word some. It appears to be almost all retail investors, depending on platform. Allowing large funds to sell off at a high price while smaller investors are completely locked out will only make the disparities worse.

Clearer picture of the full-court press to overturn Georgia's presidential election emerges with new pieces of the puzzle. Just 5 days after Jan. 6, GA's General Assembly would meet in regular session. That was the end game if Congress delayed Electoral College certification.
Gov. Kemp had refused Trump supporters' demands to call a special session of the General Assembly. Attempts by Trump to get Secretary of State Raffensperger to 'find' 11,780 votes under threat of prosecution -- and previous cajoling from Sen. Lindsey Graham -- had failed.
BJay Pak, US Attorney in Atlanta, abruptly resigned the Monday after Trump labeled his hand-picked federal prosecutor a 'never Trumper' on the call with Raffensperger. DOJ Inspector General now investigating if Pak was forced out for failing to support claims election fraud.

These are not patriots. An officer crushed by rioters. He was holding the line against a siege mob thrusting in unison to invade the seat of democracy. Shame on all of those who have lied about election fraud, inciting rioters to commit insurrection & murder. Image
Update. The officer survived. Image

I covered the 1998 murders of Officer Chestnut & Det. Gibson inside the US Capitol. I have always remembered their names & their sacrifice. Their heroism will never be forgotten, but just as Officer Sicknick’s killing during this week’s insurrection, their murders were senseless.

Where were they radicalized?
Pres. Trump: “If I lose, the election was rigged.”
Don Jr: “We’re coming for you.”
Giuliani: “Trial by combat.”
@realDonaldTrump: “We are going to have to fight much harder...[let’s] walk down to the Capitol.”
After the assault, this confession:
The body count is currently five including a police officer. Congress was stopped (temporarily) from certifying the electoral college votes. Protective-detail officers had their Glocks drawn as a last line of defense to prevent a takeover of Congress (the invaders succeeded)
These were not patriots. They were traitors.
