Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp drops the hammer on efforts to defund local police

Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp dropped the hammer on efforts to defund local police Friday as he signed a bill that bans counties and local municipalities from reducing their police budgets by more than five percent.

House Bill 286, supported by state Republicans, served as a response to activist efforts to defund police following George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis in 2020.

“This legislation will keep our communities and families safe across Georgia,” House Speaker Pro Tempore Jan Jones tweeted Friday.

“Public safety is critical to the success and future of our state, and I’m pleased to see Georgia take proactive measures to keep our residents safe and secure,” the tweet added.

Kemp noted, “The ‘Defund the Police’ movement has no place in Georgia.” The governor appeared on Fox on Monday in support of the bill.

HB 286 also requires state government and local governments to provide insurance to law enforcement employees to ensure protection from civil or other legal action caused by their efforts, according to the Washington Times.

It’s to little to late for Kemp. When we needed him he let us down and allowed Stacy Abrams to run a steal of the Senate runoff in Georgia. We need new blood.

Jesse is spot on. Think kemp craped in his bed when he didn’t stand up to the romance novelist Abrams. Should have reconvened our legislation to handle mail in ballots and other things voting issues

In Michigan we need to find out why a DEM can break the law by changing voting laws in less time before the election than allowed, and why the changes were not approved by the state legislature (healthily GOP which is why they “skipped” this law). I have written my State legislators frequently about it. But, THAT IS JUST THE BEGINNING! WHITMER “MANDATED” that elderly homes take in virus patients, like CUOMO did, in defiance of scientists VERY EARLY ON IDENTIFYING THE ELDERLY AS HIGH RISK! THEN, when her chief medical advisor resigns, he receives a RECORD BREAKING SEVERANCE PACKAGE THAT HAS ALL THE SMELL OF A PAY-OFF! BELIEVE ME, I AM KEEPING THE HEAT ON MY STATE CONGRESS TO INVESTIGATE AND GET SOME OF THESE CRIMINALS TO TESTIFY UNDER OATH! UNFORTUNATELY, I CAN;T SIGN AN IMPEACHMENT DOCUMENT ON WHITMER AS I CAN ONLY DO THAT IN PERSON! WHAT HYPOCRACY! WRITE YOUR CONGRESS, DEMAND JUSTICE. SHE IS A MURDERER, AS IS COMEY AND THE GOV OF IOWA! JAIL THEM ALL!

EMAIL YOUR STATE REPS TOO, AS MUCH OF THE BATTLE IS BEING FOUGHT IN THE STATES, OUTSIDE OF THE SWAMP. NO TO DC STATEHOOD! SHUT DOWN THE BORDER UNTIL THE VIRUS STOPS MUTATING, IF IT EVER DOES. HERE IN TAIWAN WE ARE OK, BUT AN ELITIST COMMERCIAL PILOT CAME IN AND SPREAD THE VIRUS EVERYWHERE BEFORE THEY CAUGHT HIM! HE WAS RUNNING AROUND WITH HIS MISTRESS AND HER CHILDREN HERE IN TAIWAN AND ENDED UP CLOSING A SCHOOL AND SEVERAL BUSINESSES! HE HAS SINCE BEEN FIRED, BUT I HOPE THE GOVERNMENT SUES THE AIRLINE, BUT IT IS CHINA AIRLINES (OWNED BY THE TAIWAN GOVERNMENT) SO DON’T EXPECT THAT TO HAPPEN. https://openstates.org/find_your_legislator/

Be careful what you wish for. If police are defended it is likely vigilantes will occur, similar to what happened in the old west. No prison, just executions.

Good job Mr. Kemp! We need our Police Officers more than anything right now. All these young people who think they have a cause also think they can get away with violence and property damage. Most think it’s ok to harm people who don’t believe the same as them. We need and love our Police Officers, I’m hoping that our Officers will get a bonus like Ron DeSantis did for Florida’s Officers. What they go through and have to put up with deserves much better pay then they’ll ever see. I know, I’m married to a retired Officer.

“we”, Citizens lucky enough to be living in ONE of the ONLY states in all 50 (for obama it’s 51) that has a TRUE American as it’s Governor (FLORIDA) ,do NOT have to concern ourselves with “antifa” OR blm OR the commies in D.C. ! I do feel sad for those fellow Americans who have to put up with “rino” politicians who NEED to check the “polls” before they decide to either support OR crap on their fellow citizens..Mr. Kemp is just one of those “rino”s .

People who want to defund the police need to educate yourselves
A good education is going to Portland Oregon where are you will see firsthand what defunding the police looks like people are leaving because there’s no law and order anymore and the criminals are taking Advantage Of the innocent but that’s exactly what the Democrats want
Remember Nancy Pelosi said it’s OK to preach violence and hatred Just look at how many buildings and businesses they let burn and yes it’s an American citizens lives lost and they don’t really care as long as you keep them in power

King David his son solomon, wrote Ecclesaistes about 3 thousand years ago! Ecclesiastess 10:18.
By Much slothfulness [ laziness] the building decays; and through idleness [ worthless ] of the hands the house drops through. MEANING OF THIS VERSE. The fabric of government and of the state are compared here to a neglected house which suffer serious damage when members of the Government neglect duty and give themselves over to debauchery [ corrupt ] and pleasure or desire. Such is the condition of too many countries in the world. Nothing has been changed over thousand years.

Thank you for the scripture … You quoted the scripture that others do need to know. The Bible is many things as it teaches people history and explains how to live in a world that is sometimes upside down. I also see the Bible as an instruction manual on how to live one’s life.

SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

Members of the House
202-224-3841

Members of the Senate
202-224-3121

TOLL FREE:
866-272-6622

Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

Please, don’t make an excuse not to make the calls, excuses as they say are like A-*****, we all got one!

My stupid state is run by Hitler relative the governor in Michigan. Our people in Congress from my district are all democrats. Calling them is a total joke. They don’t answer any questions ask. Send you a standard email to every one. They lie and say we are working on that problem but then vote to shaft the people. My state is a hell hole. Governor goes on vacation all the while no can see loves even if they are dying. The federal justice system does nothing to stop her. Corruption everywhere. Joe Biden is her boyfriend. It’s truly disgusting.

I wonder what hole Cheney has her head up, I know it ain’t mine, as it was still working the last time that I used it. She said that she would not help anyone spread the “Big Lie” that there was election fraud. So I guess that she will spread the “Bigger Lie”, that there was no election fraud, to help her buddies in the DNC. I think that she will have better luck running for president as a Democrat. She would at least have the media and press on her side, if she win the nomination that is.
