Republicans and Democrats are constantly at odds in America, these disagreements turn into battles fought across several states and all branches of our government. These disputes are centered around political, cultural, and economic issues that we deeply care about, so it makes sense to stay informed and get involved.
This is your GOP Presidential Digest, where we are going to go over all of the subtle details in the big stories through this past week. It’s important to know all the details with dishonest journalists and fake news empires running amuck, it’s easy to read a headline and get misinformed so let’s take a look at the facts.
State Senator Wants DA Impeached
Pennsylvania State Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman(R) is calling for the impeachment of Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner.
“The recent spike in violent crime is a direct result of DA Krasner’s failed policies and his refusal to perform the duties of his office to hold criminals accountable for the crimes that they commit” wrote Corman in a letter addressed to Pennsylvania House Speaker Bryan Cutler.
America is undergoing a massive increase in crime and many are attributing this rise in crime with the woke policies of district attorneys, no better example of this than DA Larry Krasner. Krasner has taken a soft-on-crime approach in Philadelphia and violent criminals get to walk out of jail only a few hours after being initially arrested.
Supreme Court Justices Release Statement Contradicting NPR Claims
NPR claimed in a recent report that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked Justice Neil Gorsuch to put on a mask, both Justices are now refuting this story.
Justices Sotomayor and Gorsuch released a joint statement stating that “Reporting that Justice Sotomayor asked Justice Gorsuch to wear a mask surprised us. It is false. While we may sometimes disagree about the law, we are warm colleagues and friends.”
This story is just a drop in the bucket of fake stories promoted by establishment media outlets that aim to deepen America’s divides. Reports like this are shared by one outlet and then several other outlets will run the story with a different angle because they believe the initial story to be accurate. This is how fake news spreads like wildfire in the media ecosystem.
Georgia Governor Accuses Primary Challenger of Illegal Coordination
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has accused his Republican challenger, David Perdue, of illegally coordinating with a new fundraising committee.
The complaint from Kemp was filed with the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission. The complaint alleges that the Georgia Values Fund was asking donors for their cellphone numbers so they could receive direct campaign updates from Perdue as well as news.
It is unclear if anything will come from this but this may have been a violation of campaign finance laws. Independent fundraising groups can not coordinate with candidates and that’s what will be investigated by the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission.
Conservative Commentator Celebrates ‘Victory’ Over YouTube
Conservative Commentator Dan Bongino is celebrating a victory over YouTube. Bongino was banned from YouTube as a result of his posting a video declaring that masks are “useless” when it comes to stopping Covid-19, this suspension from the platform is a “victory” according to Bongino.
Bongino explains that he views this as a victory because it clearly highlights the double standard imposed by YouTube.
