Georgia Governor Sends 1,000 National Guard Troops to Atlanta After Weekend Sees 31 Wounded and 5 Killed Including an 8 year-old

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp declared a state of emergency Monday following an uptick in shootings over the July Fourth weekend that injured 31 people and killed five after weeks of violent crime and property destruction in Atlanta.

The move authorizes the activation of 1,000 National Guard troops to “protect state property and patrol our streets”.

“Peaceful protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous, destructive agenda. Now, innocent Georgians are being targeted, shot, and left for dead,” Kemp, a Republican, said in a statement. “This lawlessness must be stopped and order restored in our capital city. I have declared a State of Emergency and called up the Georgia Guard because the safety of our citizens comes first.

“This measure will allow troops to protect state property and dispatch state law enforcement officers to patrol our streets. Enough with the tough talk,” he added. “We must protect the lives and livelihoods of all Georgians.”

The Guardsmen will be assigned to protect state buildings, including the Capitol, the governor’s mansion, and the headquarters for the Department of Public Safety. Their presence will free police officers to increase patrols on roadways and in communities, especially in Atlanta, Kemp said.

Among those killed over the holiday weekend was an 8-year-old girl. Secoriea Turner was riding in a car Saturday night in Atlanta when at least two people opened fire on the vehicle. The shooting happened near the Wendy’s fast-food restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was killed by a police officer last month, prompting weeks of protests and clashes between demonstrators and police.

Authorities said Turner was in the car with her mother and another adult when the driver attempted to drive through illegally placed barricades to get to a parking lot. A group of armed individuals had blocked the entrance.

In an emotional press conference, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms excoriated the shooting suspects.

“You shot and killed a baby,” she said. “And there wasn’t just one shooter, there were at least two shooters.”

Other cities are also grappling with a wave of gun violence over the long weekend. At least six children were killed in a series of shooting incidents in New York City that saw eight people killed and 44 shot.

In Chicago, where gun violence has led to record-levels of shootings in recent years, more than 67 people were shot over the weekend and at least 13 were killed.

Recently, the Atlanta City Council had narrowly defeated an ordinance that would have withheld $73 million of the Atlanta Police Department’s budget until Mayor Keisha Lance Bottom’s administration drafted a plan to reinvent the culture of policing in the city and “make it a national model for law enforcement”…which is Liberalspeak for “defund the police”.

Mayor Bottoms has been attempting to have her cake and eat it, too.

On one hand, she has been trying to appease the rioters by telling them that she “hears”them.

On the other hand, the citizens of Atlanta want more police presence in their neighborhoods, which are presently becoming overrun by crime.

Mayor Bottoms’ outrage and righteous indignation of the murder of little Secoriea Turner is a little late.

What did she think was going to happen when she supported those committing crimes while she dissed the Atlanta Police Department?Just as Americans witnessed in the Atlanta CHOP, a strong, vibrant police presence is necessary in an urban area in order to make the uncivilized civil.

So, now it is up to the Republican Governor of Georgia to clean up the mess which the Democrat Politicians running Atlanta have made.

Bringing in the National Guard is now a necessity.

The actions of the Far Left “Protesters” have hardly produced a “summer of Love” as Seattle Mayor Durkan called CHAZ, later CHOP when the land was first seized in Seattle by wannabe anarchists.

The Seattle Mayor finally had to admit, after Antifa/BLM started protesting at her house, that it was time to allow the police to do their job.

Now, it is time for Mayor Bottoms to sit down, shut up, and allow the National Guard to clean up the mess which she has made.

Her lack of leadership has cost little 8 year-old Secoriea her life.

And, that precious life was worth more than any “radical change”.

Trump Warns That If Seattle Mayor Durkan and Gov. Inslee Don’t “Straighten Out” Seattle’s “Autonomous Zone”, “We’ll Straighten It Out”

President Trump told Fox News’ Harris Faulkner in an exclusive interview Thursday that his administration is “not going to let Seattle be occupied by anarchists.”

“If there were more toughness, you wouldn’t have the kind of devastation that you had in Minneapolis and in Seattle. I mean, let’s see what’s going on in Seattle,” Trump told Faulkner. “I will tell you, if they don’t straighten that situation out, we’re going to straighten it out.”

The full interview will air on “Outnumbered Overtime” at 1 p.m. ET Friday.

After days of protests following the death of George Floyd, Seattle police left the boarded-up East Precinct building Monday night as a crowd of anti-police protesters set up barricades in the surrounding area, declaring six blocks in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood to be “autonomous” and a “cop-free zone.”

The president also described Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan’s handling of the situation as “pathetic,” and asked “Has she ever done this before?” He also called on Washington Gov. Jay Inslee to send in National Guard troops to restore order.

“He’s got great National Guard troops so he can do it,” Trump said of Inslee. “But one way or the other, it’s going to get done. These people are not going to occupy a major portion of a great city.

Faulkner also raised the unrest following Floyd’s death, asking Trump to explain what he means when he describes himself as a “law and order president.”

“Well, we are going to do lots of things, good things, but we also have to keep our police and our law enforcement strong,” the president answered. “They have to do it right. They have to be trained in a proper manner. They have to do it right. Again, the sad thing is that they are very professional.

“But when you see an event like that, with the more than eight minutes of horror — that’s eight minutes truly of horror, a disgrace,” Trump said of video showing then-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck on May 25.

“Then people start saying, ‘Well, are all police like that?’ They don’t know,” he added. “Maybe they don’t think about it that much. It doesn’t make any difference. The fact is they start saying, ‘Well, police are like that.’ Police aren’t like that. I mean, I’ve seen so many incredible things that they do. But you don’t see that … You don’t put it on television.

After playing a clip of the interview on “Special Report,” anchor Bret Baier asked Faulkner if Trump understood the “frustration, the anger, the fear” in the African-American community.

“He watched the eight minutes and 46 seconds, he said, of George Floyds death,” Faulkner said. “He, he taps into the loss and the hurt and the pain, and he understands that.”

However, Faulkner added that the traditional presidential role of “consoler-in-chief” didn’t appear to be as important to Trump.

“He thinks that fixing the economy is how you bring everybody together and bring them forth. He wants to restore the markings of black wealth and that rise that was happening in black communities economically,” Faulkner said. “And that’s how he wants to go for it.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Faulkner pressed Trump on his controversial “when the looting starts, the shooting starts” tweet during last month’s riots following Floyd’s death.

“Why those words?” asked Faulkner, who later explained that the phrase was first uttered by then-Miami police chief Walter Headley during the 1967 race riots.

“He was cracking down and he meant what he said,” Faulkner told Trump. “And he said, ‘I don’t even care if it makes it look like brutality. I’m going to a crackdown. When the looting starts, the shooting starts.’ That frightened a lot of people when you tweeted that.”

“It means two things, very different things,” Trump responded. “One is if there’s looting, there’s probably going to be shooting. And that’s not as a threat. That’s really just a fact because that’s what happens. And the other is if there’s looting, there’s going to be shooting … very different meanings.”

I’m sure that President Trump cannot believe what he is seeing out in Seattle.

The incompetent manner in which the Mayor of Seattle and the Governor of Washington State have handled things is the antithesis of the way that Trump built his business empire and the successful way that he was making America great again before the coronavirus hit.

President Trumpet is a typical New Yorker. He is bold and brash. He means what he says and he says what he means.

While he may not say things as eloquently as his predecessor, at least you don’t have to wade through a bunch of BS to get to the meaning of what he just said.

Make no mistake about it, the anarchist movement known as Antifa, which has brought riots to America’s major cities, has been planning all of this for some time now. We first saw a glimpse of it during the 2016 Presidential Campaign when then-candidate Trump’s campaign rallies were crashed by New Bolsheviks attempting to get on the news and to make the opposition to  Trump’s candidacy seem larger than it actually was.

We are witnessing that strategy being employed again.

By using the peaceful protests and the virtue signaling of the Far Left Democratic Politicians and Celebrities as their vanguard of apologizing imbeciles, the anarchists are paving the way for America’s “glorious future” as a Democratic Socialist country….or so they think.

While their actions may have a lot of Americans Ashamed and apologetic for sins which they have not committed, the Deplorables who made a Citizen Statesman the 45th President of the United States of America are ready to do it again on November 3, 2020.



And, while “The Boss” is at it, he needs to evict those squatters in Seattle.

Since they hate our country, send them to the country which they have modeled their political philosophy after.

I hear the Siberian Gulags are lovely this time of year.
