State of Georgia: Kemp resigns, but after claiming victory!

Not strange that State Secretary and responsible for the election won the Governor race in the State of Georgia. The wolf shouldn’t look over the hen-house. There are already reports that Brian Kemp barred and voter suppressed 700,000 voters, plus of all the technical difficulties, the lack of ballots and all the brazen disregard for the voters in vital districts in the state. This just shows what sort of man Kemp is.

That Stacey Abrams had not a chance, she was a pawn in the game of Kemp. That is why he resigned today. While Abrams doesn’t accept to loose this one. That is not strange, as the wolf has used all tricks to win. If he feels this is how he needs to win, he really is a despicable man, who doesn’t even respect the people he supposed to govern.

He will be hated thief in power. A man who had to cheat, trick and run the elections to be able to be a viable candidate. Kemp couldn’t even win a fair fight, he couldn’t even be a gentleman and let someone else run this election. But he knew that if he didn’t use his office and his position. He would never become Governor of Georgia.

This is Banana Republic class, as he resigns today with a letter to Nathan Deal. This was to establish to the public, that he was switching offices. Because he is blatantly a special candidate, because this what is known by the Secretary of State in Georgia:

The Office of the Secretary of State coordinates and monitors all election activity: this includes voter registration; municipal, state, county, and federal elections; campaign finance disclosure for state and federal candidates and political action committees; and certification of election results. The Georgia State Capitol office also is responsible for certifying the qualification of candidates and the preparation of ballots and election forms and materials. As a result of legislation passed by the Georgia General Assembly in 2001, the office is responsible for removing the names of deceased electors from the voter registration lists statewide. The secretary chairs the State Election Board, which investigates election fraud and enforces state election law. As part of an effort to modernize state election procedures, the Twenty-first Century Voting Commission and the secretary of state’s office worked to establish a statewide uniform election system, which was implemented for the first time in November 2002” (Ballotpedia – ‘Georgia Secretary of State’).

Here is my problem with Kemp, he has problematic statements and acts during the campaign as a candidate. But to top that off, he decided who was on the voter lists and who was accepted as candidates, while he was running. He monitored the whole election activity, while he was a candidate himself, he ensured to see all finance disclosures and also the one who was in-charge of certifying election results. Therefore, he could ensure and did so, with purging election lists, he secured lacking material and lacking machines to work in vital districts in the State.

That is why, he should have resigned long before running as candidate. It should be illegal for a whole a wolf to run the hen-house. He will take the hens when nobody is watching and that is what Kemp has done. It is hard to believe that these results are eligible or legit. As Kemp has done his part behind the scenes and on stage. He has taken the gubernatorial seat, this he has done with unfair ways.

No one should ever run the elections and be a candidate at the same time. The same office that is running elections, should not proclaim someone from their winning. Not if it is free and fair elections. If they want to be a Banana Republic. Than, continue with this charade, but everyone should know that this is nonsense.

Kemp is to late to resign today. He should have done it a long time ago. Before being allowed to run as a candidate. He shouldn’t have run the shop and be the one running at the same time. Sorry, that is not how the world supposed to work. Even if Life of Brian thinks so. Peace.

State of Georgia: Where one man was a Candidate and tally General at the same time!

You know something is off, when the same guy running for governor, also have the power and administer the polls itself. This was Brian Kemp of the Georgia State, who happen to run on the ballot and administer the polls and counting of the polls. If you thought they would be fair or free, think again.

This is state was a Banana Republic yesterday, where people was purged of the voter rolls, where the lack of equipment and disenfranchised voters by the dozens. If I were Brian Kemp, I would have stepped down a long time ago as the state official of the Midterm Elections. As the double play and double role played to his advantage. No matter who had gone against him, he would have put up the guards and ensured victory.

That the Secretary of State Kemp ensured this and made the polls has be a deliberate act. As the state delivered to several poll stations late ballots, other machines with no cords and so on. With this sort of actions. You just know that the game been rigged. There is no joke, there is no laugh, this is the reason why you need foreign Election Observer Missions from EU/AU/ASEAN,USAN and Commonwealth. To secure the legitimacy and also if the elections is credible.

The first stop, should be that the man who is in-charge of the elections shouldn’t be allowed to run in the polls. It doesn’t matter, which party the man represents or align with. It is matter of principals and ethical values. That should matter, if you want to show progress and be a democracy.

This here could be taken out of any questionable election within the last 5 years on other continents, where the Electoral Commission has rigged in favour of the ruling party and made ways to ensure their candidates victory. There is no difference on George State and several banana republic abroad.

Let me say it again, it wouldn’t matter if Mother Theresa, Mahatma Ghandi or Jesus incarnated raced against Kemp in Georgia, yesterday. Because, he could sway, gerrymandering and secure the ballots in his favour. By securing the lack of polling stations is certain districts and also ensure that his base was covered. That is clearly the memo from yesterday too. As there was enough signs of foul play to be heard off.

I wish it was differently and a fair fight, but when your racing against the guy, whose running the show. It is bound to fail. Peace.

Dropping some side-notes on the 15 Years Anniversary of T.I.’s Trap Muzik!

Listen pops

Want to know a little more about rap?

First rule if it’s real

It ain’t just a record deal

It’s a trap” – T.I. – Trap Muzik (2003),

Today, its 15 years ago since the T.I. or Clifford Harris second album was released. That was on the date of 19th August 2003. This was the first album I heard from the rapper and lyricist. Before this, he had dropped an album on Arista, “I’m Serious” but that hadn’t been successful. This was the launch of his career and also, where people got to now of the Trap and the Grand Hustle. That was after he had a series of Mixtapes, which gave way to this album.

This was the album that really opened my eyes for him as an artist. I will take some of the notable lyrics from the album. As there was some bars, that if you haven’t heard is worth to remember. As the statement it made when it was released.

It’s a war going on and they killing for nothing

We were in denial all awhile they where flicking the buttons

I’d rather be dying for something instead of living for nothing

End of discussion” – T.I. – No More Talk (2003).

If that isn’t social commentary and worthy of a shout out nothing is. This is a proof, that the 22 year old rapper, even back then wrote social commentary and about the struggles of the community. Not just slanging dope over banging beats.

And the cars been parked but the rims keep moving

Sign pictures, buy an onion of good and throw the deuces

Cause I ain’t Hollywood, I come from the hood, I’m used to it” – T.I. – 24’s (2003).

If you ever heard a banging video game song for a car game. This song, the 24’s was made for that. The first car riding song. An it was a hit. This one really introduced to plenty a rims and the spinners. Not all of us knew about that cultural aspect from the Southern part of the United States.

“But why the rubber band?”

It representing the struggle man!” – T.I. – Rubberband Man (2003).

This single was the one that first got played on the music TV channels that I picked up. You really felt the beat and at the same time. I got to know David Banner. Therefore, this track alone. Has shown both of them to me. This was really the jam from the album.

I’m the king cause I said it and I mean that shit” – T.I. – Kingofdasouth (2003).

This song and the title of calling himself the King of the South. Which created lots of beef, one that spawn off with Lil Flip. Someone will remember that, someone will not. This was before the mixtape of Down with the King and the “Welcome Back” one. But that one is whole another story.

Now, I have taken my favorite bars and also briefly commented on this album from one of my favorite artists. T.I. or T.I.P. who is still relevant. It is strange to think that its already 15 years since this was released. Peace.
