Despite the efforts of liberal fascist to force feed a carpetbagger to the people of Georgia, the voters rejected him at the Georgia polls and four other special elections held recently. True Americans can win, we just need to be determined and fight.
Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question about gun belts for concealed carry. He also wanted to talk about Duracoat projects. Professor Paul takes the time to address both subjects. The boys were outdoors last weekend and will share some of their adventures with you.

Republican Karen Handel’s projected victory over political upstart Jon Ossoff in Tuesday’s Georgia special election was immediately cast by the GOP as a devastating blow for Democrats.
As Handel delivered her victory speech in Atlanta, the National Republican Congressional Committee blasted out a memo crowing that Democrats “marshalled [sic] their resources and went all-in Georgia … and they failed.”
“After promising a revamped strategy that would deliver them a majority, House Democrats are no closer to that goal today than they were at the beginning of the new year,” said the memo, which claimed that Democrats had gone “0-5 in specials [sic] elections.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., echoed the NRCC when he said, “Democrats from coast to coast threw everything they had at this race, and Karen would not be defeated,” in his statement congratulating Handel on her victory.
The NRCC memo referred to races involving Republican-held seats that represented a chance at a Democratic pickup. The NRCC also counted the Georgia contest as two separate races, since Ossoff failed to garner enough support in the initial balloting to avoid Tuesday’s runoff.
Earlier this year, Republican House candidates held GOP seats in Kansas and Montana. In addition to Handel’s victory Tuesday, Republican Ralph Norman won a closer-than-expected race in South Carolina to succeed Mick Mulvaney, who resigned from Congress this past February to become Trump’s Office of Management and Budget director.
Democrats did hold one of their own seats in a California special election earlier this month, as Jimmy Gomez secured the seat vacated by Xavier Becerra, who resigned to become the state’s attorney general.
After Tuesday night’s results, Republicans hold 241 seats in the House of Representatives compared to 194 for the Democrats. Democrats must defend their current districts and win 24 GOP-held seats to regain a majority next November.
Celebrating Republican special election wins in Georgia and South Carolina, President Trump taunted Democrats Wednesday over their intense opposition to his presidency.
“Democrats would do much better as a party if they got together with Republicans on Healthcare,Tax Cuts,Security. Obstruction doesn’t work!” the president tweeted.
It should be noted: Even Republicans who control both the House and Senate and members of the Trump administration have had trouble agreeing with each other on a path forward for major priorities such as health care, tax reform, and other issues.
Stressing that Republicans have now won special elections in Georgia, South Carolina, Montana, and Kansas, Trump tweeted late Tuesday: “Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O! All the Fake News, all the money spent = 0.”
There have been four special races for U.S. House seats vacated by Trump appointees, all won by the GOP.
The highest profile contest came Tuesday, as former Georgia secretary of state Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff a race to replace U.S. Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., who left Congress to become Trump’s secretary of health and human services.
The Republicans also won a special election in South Carolina. GOP candidate Ralph Norman narrowly defeated Democrat Archie Parnell in a race for the seat that Mick Mulvaney held before accepting the job as Trump’s budget director.
Democrats spent a lot of money in the Georgia race, and began to re-assess their strategies in the wake of Ossoff’s defeat. Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass. said the Georgia result “better be a wake up call for Democrats – business as usual isn’t working. Time to stop rehashing 2016 and talk about the future.”
