    MARIETTA, Georgia – State attorney general candidate John Gordon criticized incumbent Attorney General Chris Carr for what he characterized as a “do nothing” term at an event Monday. “I’ve worked hard and now I’ll work hard for each of you and for the people of Georgia, which is, unfortunately, more than I can say about my opponent, Chris ‘Do Nothing’ Carr,” stated Gordon. “I have worked hard for election integrity. I didn’t hear one word about election integrity [from Carr].” Gordon also spoke on the topic of digital censorship from the technocracy. “I’ve posted on YouTube and Facebook the solemn truth and guess what happened? They took me down,” said Gordon. “In the United States of America as a candidate for public office where we have a competition for ideas, they took me down! Well, I’ve got news for you – as attorney general, they will not cancel us! They will not silence us!” Before speaking on education, Gordon raised the issue of the 2020 riots in Atlanta, and the hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage caused by...
    Atlanta, Georgia – Trump-endorsed candidate for Georgia attorney general John Gordon told The Georgia Star News at an Atlanta stop of the Real Georgia Speaks Team Trump Bus Tour that if he is elected and a local prosecutor doesn’t do their job then he “will do it for them.” “I’ve worked hard for my family and now I want to work hard for the people of Georgia. I want to work hard to protect their constitutional liberties, especially the vote. I want to protect our communities,” said Gordon in response to a question about why he is running. “If I’m elected attorney general, there will not be rioting and looting in Buckhead. People will not get off scot-free. If the local prosecutor won’t do their job, I’ll do it for them.” “We’ll also stop the influx of fentanyl into our state,” continued the candidate. “I’m told there is enough fentanyl to kill 75 percent of Americans. That is a staggering, sobering statistic. We’ve got to wake up and push back hard on illegal drugs entering our state.” Gordon discussed the...
    Attorney General Chris Carr is working with public and private partners on the local, state and federal levels to combat the surge in organized retail crime targeting retailers and online marketplaces in Georgia and across the country. These ongoing efforts are enhanced by Governor Brian Kemp’s budget and legislative proposals to create a new Gang Prosecution Unit in the Office of the Attorney General. “The alarming increase in organized retail crime poses a threat to our safety and economic vitality, and this must stop,” said Carr. “We know that gangs are profiting off of drugs, guns, human beings, cybercrimes and benefits, but they are also engaged in these violent thefts targeting retailers across the country. Our Gang Prosecution Unit will provide us with the authority to prosecute these crimes and to help protect Georgia’s workers, consumers and small businesses. We are proud to continue this fight as we strengthen our efforts statewide.” Organized retail crime exposes Georgia retail workers to potentially dangerous encounters, puts consumers at risk of unknowingly...
    NICHOLAS KAMM / AFP via Getty Images Former President Donald Trump lashed out at his Attorney General Bill Barr, amid reports that the former Attorney General referred to claims of widespread election fraud in the 2020 general election as “bullshit.” Trump lost the election to President Joe Biden but has continued to foster doubt among his base by repeating the baseless claims that the election was stolen from him, despite zero reputable evidence that suggests that to be true. “It’s people in authority like Bill Barr that allow the crazed Radical Left to succeed,” Trump wrote. “He and other RINOs in the Republican Party are being used in order to try to convince people that the election was legitimate when so many incredible facts have now come out to show conclusively that it wasn’t.” What got Trump so angry about Barr? The Atlantic published a preview of Betrayal, from ABC’s Jon Karl, which delves into how Trump and Barr’s relationship with each other deteriorated in the aftermath of the 2020 election. “He had expected Trump to lose and therefore was...
    Georgia First Lady Marty Kemp, in partnership with Attorney General Chris Carr, today released a new anti-human trafficking public service announcement (PSA). The new PSA highlights “The Survivors First Act” and is airing across the state on digital media. “Brian and I were proud to work with Attorney General Carr and members of the Georgia General Assembly to institute ‘The Survivors First Act’ to help victims heal by removing barriers to employment, housing, and other steps towards rehabilitation,” said First Lady Marty Kemp. “We need to make sure we are getting the word out to survivors as much as possible, and through all means. This PSA provides that clear message, and I hope all survivors know that we will stop at nothing to support them.” “Unfortunately, some survivors of human trafficking still carry around the weight of a criminal record while trying to heal from the trauma they’ve experienced,” said Attorney General Chris Carr. “We are proud to work with Georgia’s First Lady, Marty Kemp, to ensure all survivors are...
    Computer photo created by Racool_studio - www.freepik.com With so many people relying on the internet for teleworking and online learning, scammers are doubling down on tech support scams in an effort to steal people’s personal and financial information. Scammers may call their victims posing as a representative from Microsoft, Dell or other tech support. In another version of the scam, victims get a pop-up window on their computer, saying that a virus has been detected on their device and instructs the person to call a phone number right away to unfreeze their computer and have the virus removed. In either scenario, once consumers are on the phone with the scammer, they are instructed to provide the phony tech support agent with remote access to their computer. The scammer may ask for payment to remove the virus. Once the con artists have access to your computer, they can retrieve user names, passwords and other personal information stored on your computer and use it to steal money from your accounts, make unauthorized...
    Acting Attorney Gneral Jeffrey Rosen came within moments of being kicked out so Trump could turn the DOJ against the election Donald Trump driving a crowd into a violent attack on the Capitol may be the defining image that will remain in the minds of most Americans. But that assault on Jan. 6 wasn’t the only coup Trump planned. After his ridiculous legal ploys had all floundered; after his attempts to strong arm governors and secretaries of state had failed; after he had wined and dined state legislators in an attempt to prevent the certification of votes … Trump had another scheme. The New York Times reports that Trump worked with Department of Justice lawyer Jeffrey Clark on a plan that would have removed acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen, then Trump and Clark would use the DOJ to order Georgia legislators to reverse the outcome of the election in that state while blocking Congress from counting the Electoral College vote. This plan was apparently only halted because of an accident of timing. And it shows once again how close Trump came to...
    Donald Trump planned to fire his Attorney General for refusing to overturn election results and replace him with one who would, according to a bombshell report in The New York Times. Jeffrey Rosen, who was serving as acting Attorney General after Bill Barr resigned just before Christmas, would not agree to upend the presidential election result in Georgia. He also pushed Rosen to appoint special counsels, including one who would look into Dominion Voting Systems - an election machinery company, which Trump and his supporters accused, without any evidence, of switching votes from Trump to Joe Biden. Trump worked with another Justice Department official, Jeffrey Clark, to try and overturn the Georgia vote.  Jeffrey Clark, a Justice Department official, was considered as a replacement for the AG Jeffrey Rosen became acting Attorney General when Bill Barr stepped down before Christmas He even went as far as staging an 'Apprentice-style' interview with Clark and Rosen, with both men arguing to have the job. When word reached other Justice Department officials of the plan to replace Rosen with Clark, and throw...

    The Pennsylvania case describes the move by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, backed by Donald Trump, who claims that the judicial process uses a “cocoon of pseudo-claims” in support of “treason abuse” and believes in a “surreal alternative reality.” State Attorney General Josh Shapiro writes: “Texas is trying to invalidate elections in four states. The claim that this Court must exercise its original jurisdiction and then anoint Texas’ presidential candidate is legally inalienable and disrespectful to the principles of constitutional democracy. “ Donald Trump lost four key states, and Texas’ move is an attempt to invalidate millions of votes that could change the election for him. The Pennsylvania filing further states: “Texas’ attempt to elect the next president of this court has no legal or factual basis. The court should not follow this treacherous abuse of the judicial process and should send a clear and vague signal that it should never reflect such abuses. ” Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel described her challenge as “unprecedented” and “without a true foundation or proper legal basis.” He wrote: “The election in Michigan...
