So MLB is fine with ball games in Cuba and training in China, but Georgia is the human rights problem, by Monica Showalter

Nowadays you just have to shout “human rights violation” without offering any proof. So nobody has shown how requiring an ID to vote is a human rights violation, or why vote fraud doesn’t violate the human rights of everyone who legally votes. From Monica Showalter at americanthinker.com:

You could tell that the Major League Baseball (MLB) decision to pull its All-Star game out of Atlanta was a deeply unpopular one, based on the ambivalent reaction of far-left failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.  Here’s the money quote from her Twitter statement:

After all, isn’t she the one who pushed through most of the fraud-enabling laws on the books in Georgia which triggered the recent legislative action?  The blacks-are-too-dumb-to-have-voter-ID idiotic notion, so by extension, nobody should have to show voter ID to vote, even though everyone needs to show ID to buy a beer at an MLB game, or buy a ticket to one?  She needs to make up her mind.

So which is it?  Not wanting to see families hurt, or being all in for the boycott of Atlanta, which certainly should affect the city tax base?  She wants to have it both ways, boycott but nobody hurt.  That’s because unlike MLB, she wants to win public office, and knows that screwing over black businesses, which will get it in the teeth with this MLB maneuver, is going to make her unpopular.

Here’s the MLB statement:

Abrams’s response is just the tip of the iceberg of the hypocrisy and contradictions seen from this MLB maneuver — stiffing black-owned American small businesses just emerging from a pandemic to protest a U.S. law they are perfectly free to campaign for to change otherwise through elections, or else playing the ball game without politics and drawing a big audience.  Which is it for them?  And by the way, how many of their baseball players are American citizens?

Georgia Poll Observers Say They Were Effectively Told To Go Home, by Zachary Steiber

Nothing to see here, just move along. From Zachary Steiber at The Epoch Times via zerohedge.com:

Several poll observers in Georgia said under penalty of perjury that they were effectively told to go home on election night before ballot counting resumed for several hours with no observers present.

Republican poll observers Mitchell Harrison and Michelle Branton said in affidavits that at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 3 inside an absentee ballot counting room State Farm Arena, a woman shouted to everyone to stop working and return the following morning at 8:30 a.m.

This lady had appeared through the night and Mitchell and I believed her to be the supervisor,” Branton wrote in an affidavit.

Following the instruction, nearly all workers left, except a handful of people. All ballot counting stopped.

The poll observers were the only outsiders left, along with a Fox News crew. Harrison spent time seeking answers from Regina Waller, the Fulton County’s public affairs manager for elections, but she refused to answer the questions, he said in an affidavit.

A few minutes later, Branton, Harrison, and the crew left. Only four people remained in the room including Waller, when they had departed.

The group later heard that ballot counting had resumed at the arena, despite the public being told that it had ceased for the night. Observers rushed back at around 1 a.m. on Nov. 4 and found that to be the case.

Georgia Video Footage Shows Poll Workers Staying Behind, Producing Boxes of Ballots, by Jack Phillips

Okay, for those arguing that there was no widespread fraud, explain this. From Jack Phillips at theepochtimes.com:

President Donald Trump’s legal team on Dec. 3 presented surveillance footage at a Georgia state legislature hearing that appears to show ballot-counting workers telling poll observers late at night on Election Day to leave before continuing to count and pulling out what appears to be boxes filled with ballots.

In the hearing on Dec. 3, Jacki Pick, a lawyer who is volunteering with the campaign’s legal case, said the team received video footage from State Farm Arena’s vote-tabulation center in Fulton County, Georgia. The team said that GOP poll watchers weren’t allowed to watch the counting process in the poll center.

According to Pick, an unusual occurrence took place later in the evening at around 10 p.m. local time: A woman—described as a blonde woman with braids—told workers to stop counting and notified everyone to go home.

Describing the video footage, Pick said, “Everyone clears out, including the Republican observers and the press, but four people stay behind and continue counting and tabulating well into the night.” The four counted unobserved until about 1 a.m., according to the video.

Pick said that video footage shows Fulton County election workers waiting at their scanning areas until GOP poll observers and reporters left the room before they started “scanning ballots,” ostensibly without any observation.

Another “mob justice” #fail, by Simon Black

Burn down a Wendy’s just because. From Simon Black at sovereignman.com:

You probably know the story already: on Friday night, an intoxicated man in Atlanta got behind the wheel of a vehicle and drove to a local Wendy’s fast food restaurant.

When he arrived, he passed out while still in the driver’s seat of his vehicle… which also happened to be smack dab in the middle of the Wendy’s drive-thru lane, so he was blocking the other customers.

Wendy’s staff called the police… which seemed sensible enough. And when the police arrived, the situation remained polite and calm.

The man failed voluntarily agreed to take a breathalyzer test, and when his blood-alcohol content was found to be above the legal limit, the police attempted to arrest him.

You know the rest of the story– the man resisted arrest, a fight broke out, he took one of the police officer’s stun guns and fired it at the officers while running away, and then he was shot. He died shortly after.

So what does the mob do? They torched the Wendy’s.

This is total madness. What possible wrongdoing is Wendy’s guilty of? Were they supposed let a drunk driver obstruct their drive-thru and NOT call the police?
