John Fredericks, Steve Bannon, Leftitarians, and My Little Powerpoint on How Georgia Lost the Senate and the White House

As I’ve often said, I’m a Luddite.  

Look it up.  It’s good for you.  Not that I believe literally in smashing printing presses: I just don’t trust technology.  See, for example, how technological advancements in pneumatic tube delivery of consumer goods drives the proto-Marxist world revolution in Edward Bellamy’s seminal 1888 worldwide best-selling novel, Looking Backward...

I am on Cliff Kincaid’s Show Discussing Marjorie Taylor Greene and the Georgia GOP

You can watch it here, at America’s Survival: One-Party Rule: Republicans Now Taking Orders From Democrats

Analyst Tina Trent joins Cliff Kincaid to discuss the phenomenon known as “Kevin McCarthyism,” a name given to the Republican movement that keeps anti-Trumper Liz Cheney as the number three in the House GOP leadership while ostracizing conservative wife, mother, and small businesswoman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green. House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy is the same official who removed strong conservative Steve King from the Congress in response to Democratic Party demands. ...

Marjorie Taylor Greene is not the First “Truther” Georgia Sent to Congress. That was Cynthia McKinney.

I’m positive I’ve “met” Marjorie Taylor Greene a couple of times.  I put that in quotes because I don’t think I ever spoke to her, but our paths have crossed.  I’m terrible with names, and I meet a lot of people, but I do recognize her.

Justice for Maureen and Danny Faulkner

Today, a few days before Christmas, Maureen Faulkner has received more terrible news.  On Dec. 9, 1981, she received the worst news of all: her husband of two years, Danny, has been gunned-down, assassination style, begging for his life at the hands of then-street-thug/future NPR commentator Mumia Abu Jamal.  The fine and brilliant Matthew Vadum has the story here.  Note it has been removed from search functions: Pennsylvania Supreme Court Refuses to Remove DA in Cop-Killer’s Case.

Here’s a handy list of all the times I’ve written about Mumia: it makes me sick to recount them.  I can’t imagine what it takes to live them.  Now a Soros-funded District Attorney has taken up the case for freeing Abu Jamal from within the justice system that was supposed to represent Danny Faulkner, not drag his body from the grave and lynch his bones, again, from the nearest flagpole.  This what you voted for, Democrats.  None of you are welcome near my house again. The lines are drawn. ...

Newsweek Lies Bigly About Bigly Lying “Organization” That Lies Bigly about being Pro-Trump by Telling Georgia Conservatives to Sit Out the Senate Race.

On Saturday, various activist groups descended on the Georgia Capitol to assert that Trump won, that Governor Kemp be deposed, and to shrilly instruct Georgia Republicans and conservatives to stay home and refuse to vote in the upcoming Senate runoffs because the Deep State is plottin’ to use the election to invade their privacy in some inexplicable way, so we should teach the Georgia GOP a firm lesson by tying up our two Senate seats in a pink bow and handing them to Stacey Abrams.

Cliff Kincaid and Tina Trent on the Georgia GOP, Voter Fraud, and the Georgia Senate Run-Offs Between Loeffler, Warnock, Perdue, Ossoff

Cliff Kincaid at America’s Survival (or USA Survival) has several fascinating YouTube interviews about the existential rolling elections mess that is the Peach State, including an informative talk with Garland Favorito, founder of VOTER GA.  Mr. Favorito, a retired computer tech expert, is also gifted in pedagogy, for in this relatively brief interview he was able to make the problems with the Georgia recount clear even to me, hopelessly unreconstructed luddite that I am.

If you can explain the virtually mystical workings of the Dominion voter machine bar-code-plus-fifty-four-pound-paper-ballot system to someone who still pines for her flip phone and IBM Selectric, you’re good at ‘splainin.  Do check out the VOTER GA website. ...

Doing the Job the British and American Justice Systems Won’t Do: Serial Killers Culled by Covid 19

Everything has some silver lining.

Covid-19 finally carried out the death sentence with which British authorities were too busy to bother: notorious Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe died today from the disease.  Rather than link to the encomiums for Sutcliffe himself by “civil rights” attorney activists and depraved lovesick women — very often one and the same — here is an article paying proper tribute to Sutcliffe’s victims.  How is it that the only real journalists now work at The Sun...

Georgia’s Hate Crimes Racket: Update on the Murder of Eddie Nelson Jr. by Jayvon Hatchett

Craig Jones, lawyer for the family of murder victim Eddie Nelson Jr., made a pretty extraordinary statement today.  Here is the video from the Columbus, GA news station WLTZ, along with a transcript of his remarks.  It’s well worth watching the whole thing.  This is the sort of reporting you’re not getting in Atlanta:

New details are emerging about what happened inside the Muscogee County Jail early Saturday morning when Eddie Nelson was allegedly beaten to death by his cellmate Jayvon Hatchett. Nelson was picked up for a probation violation on September 1st and then housed with the hate crime suspect. [snip] ...

Not Reporting Jayvon Hatchett: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Just Can’t Find the Right Hate Crime to Publicize

There’s absolutely nothing hate crimes activists hate more than having the wrong type of hate committed by the wrong type of hater take the wind out of their ideological sails.  This is why the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has reported exactly nothing about Jayvon Hatchett until they were grudgingly forced to do so a few hours ago, and then only by re-running an AP story after Hatchett apparently did a re-run on his openly stated intention to kill white men by killing his white cellmate.

Four days ago. ...

ANTIFA/BLM Protestors Cheer Child-Rape

There’s no need to make this up.  

In cities across America, ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter are violating all standards of human decency to carry out increasingly-violent putchs as idiot leftists like pretty much everyone I’ve ever known in college (New College of USF), Atlanta, grad school (Emory) et.al., outside police, manual labor, and fast food jobs, remain studiedly silent in the hope of maintaining their superior class status during the next wave of violence. ...

Today they Came for Jenna Marbles and I Did Nothing

Let’s take a little breather from talking about how Georgia Speaker David Ralston misused his legislative privilege to free child rapists while saying that WE have no souls if we don’t elect Jussie Smollet to the Supreme Court.  Let’s set aside the fact that the NAACP isn’t being kicked off twitter for saying ALL police are racist sub-humans who “murder black fathers,” while people who merely re-tweet the NAACP tweet to show how bat-crazy it is are having their accounts shut down.

Let’s save for tomorrow that speech someone needs to give soon-to-be former Governor Kemp when he signs that despicable hate crimes bill that will make his daughter a lesser victim in the eyes of the law if, say, she and her gay girlfriend both get gang raped by the same gang rapists because his daughter is just a heterosexual rape victim, not someone important like a gay rape victim. ...

Black Lives Don’t Matter to the NAACP Unless They Can Use Them to Attack Police and White People

104 people were shot in Chicago over Father’s Day Weekend. 14 died.  Among the dead were four children: 3-year-old Mehki James, 13-year-old Amaria Jones, 16-year old Charles Riley, and 17-year old Sean Francis.  All the dead children were black.  All the dead and likely all or almost all the injured were black too.  All or nearly all the shooters were black.

None of the shootings are being counted as hate crimes, of course.  Blowing the brains of 3-year old Mehki James all over the seats of a car is not hate, because, as legislators in other states and now in Georgia have decided, “hate” only counts for crimes that can be blamed on police or white people, crimes that drop cash into the pockets of the NAACP and the ADL and the HRC and the Chamber of Commerce and, of course, the legislators who sidle up to them, pockets open. ...

Police are the Only Real Victims of Hate Crime in Georgia. And Senate Republicans Just Screwed Police to Pander to BLM, a Terrorist Organization That Kills Police

The Republican-led Senate Rules Committee in Georgia just screwed police all over Georgia at the behest of a mob that celebrates cop-killers.  From the discussions they had, they clearly don’t even know how these laws work.  Ignorance AND submission aren’t a good look.  Jeff Mullis is head of Georgia Senate Rules.  Flood his damn phones: (404) 656-0057.  If that doesn’t work, call his home district: (706) 375-1776.

Jeff Mullis, apologist for cop-killers, or ignorant misguided guy? ...

Georgia House Rules Chairman Richard Smith (R-Columbus) says we are not “Moral” if we don’t Stop Everything and Pass a so-called “Hate Crime” Law

This is Richard Smith.  He’s one of Speaker Ralston’s henchmen, which means that he lies about Ralston using his legislative power to deny justice to child rape victims in order to advance his own political career.  Morally, I don’t know how you live with yourself, doing that. Optically, it looks sort of like this:

House Rules Chairman Richard Smith, a Columbus Republican, abruptly adjourned Tuesday’s rules committee without putting any bills before the full House to consider, saying it “is becoming an embarrassment to the state” that a Senate committee has yet to consider House Bill 426, a hate crimes penalty bill that the House passed in March 2019. ...

Why Isn’t The Media Covering Both Sides of the Hate Crimes Debate?

Well, we know why.  But let’s pretend we don’t.

Contrary to what you might read in the newspapers, watch on tv, hear on the radio, or absorb directly into your brain through freebasing the Google-censored internet, a large number of people think hate crime laws are not only unnecessary but divisive and unjust and have no place in a society where many people fought for decades to ensure that all people are equal in the eyes of the law regardless of their identity. ...

The Georgia Legislature Can’t Ethically Govern Until it is Safe to Testify Against Hate Crime Laws

For reasons I detail throughout this blog, and in editorials including this one published in the Atlanta Journal Constitution in 2000 and this one in Insider Advantage in 2019, I have been fighting against the passage of hate crime laws since the late 1990s.  I’ve lost a lot professionally by taking on this fight, yet I have every intention of opposing the legislation again this time.

But looking at the crowds outside the Georgia General Assembly’s Gold Dome yesterday, I don’t think I will be physically safe if I come down the Capitol to testify against HB 426.  I think most reasonable people would agree that anyone publicly identified as an opponent of hate crime laws would not get safely through that crowd of raucous protestors who circled the Capitol demanding hate crimes laws or else...

Stephanie Rapkin, 64, Was Attacked by a Violent Mob, Then Threatened at Her Home. Now She’s in Jail, Plastered on Newspapers Internationally, Receiving Death Threats, and Facing Hate Crime Charges.

Do Georgians really want hate crime laws?  Because, they’re the real mob violence.

You have probably heard of Stephanie Rapkin, the Milwaukee attorney who for no reason whatsoever but her racist, putrid heart expectorated on a black teenager at an entirely law-abiding, peaceful, high-school-musical-like protest in Milwaukee. ...

Do Ralston and Bottoms Really Want Hate Crime Laws? Because the Atlanta Rioters Are All Hate Criminals. Including Bottoms and Ralston.

Certain politicians and pundits in Atlanta — Double-Dipping Mayor I’ll take two paychecks for that one job thank you very much Keisha Lance Bottoms, disgraced GOP House Speaker David Ralston, job-threatening public-radio-triple-dipper Bill Nigut, and every single Democrat and virtue-signaling Republican want to pass a hate crime law in Georgia.  Because Brunswick.  Because George Floyd.  Because “racism.”  Purportedly against all black men.  Purportedly by all police.

As of this writing, such rhetoric and the riots they birthed have resulted in serious injuries to more than 400 police and several murders of police, along with hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage and looting. ...

Arrest Mark Rudd For Felony Murder. Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn Too.

Un-prosecuted Weather Underground terrorist Mark Rudd has an op-ed confessing to felony murder in the leftist-terrorist paper of record, The New York Times today.

Rudd must be excited: his stock is going up. The last time the Times gave over their editorial page to a Weather terrorist, it was to his rival-in-love-tenure-and-attention, Billy Ayers. It was also the morning of 9/11, and Ayers’ wispy-bearded mug smirking from the pages of the Times as he bragged about how much fun he had bombing the Pentagon was likely the last thing many people saw before they suffocated and burned to death in the Twin Towers. And, the Pentagon. ...

Michelle & Barack & Bernardine & Bill: The Real Story of the Obamas and the Terrorist Couple

Welcome back to tinatrent.com! After a years-long hiatus, I am finally ready to start blogging again. I’d like to thank people who took the time to write and ask me where I’ve been. The good news is I re-built a tear-down house in the North Georgia Mountains and tried to start a tomato farm — and will be trying again to start a tomato farm, hopefully without the weeks of 90+ temperatures, poison oak wrestling, verticillium wilt, horrible hornworms, and the dreaded chickweed.

Speaking of terrorists who keep coming back, my first offering isn’t a blog post but a very long piece about the truth about the relationship between Barack and Michelle Obama and Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. ...

Radicalization Concern Trolls and the new Apology Tour

In 1999, when I was lobbying to defeat Georgia’s hate crime bill for the first time, I coined the term “Apology Tour” to describe grasping politicians who try to score points by very publicly proclaiming their guilt for some racist act in their distant past.  

Such timed confessions aren’t really about atoning for personal error: they are one-upsmanship attempts to project accusations of racism onto anyone who doesn’t apologize as loudly as you do — and also fall in line with your politics. ...

David Shafer Sponsored the National Popular Vote Bill With Stacey Abrams. He Has No Business Being the Chairman of the Georgia GOP.

Did This Happen?

On Saturday, the Georgia GOP will hold their statewide convention in Savannah. Former State Senator David Shafer is one of the three candidates to head the state party. I spoke with Shafer this week at an advance event for the convention. He was gracious. He amassed a good record in the state senate. He seems like a nice guy.

But David Shafer has no business running the state party because he sponsored the National Popular Vote bill, a bill that would existentially devastate the GOP in Georgia — and everywhere else in the United States. Worse, he co-sponsored the bill with our party’s sworn enemies, people like Stacey Abrams and “Venceremos Brigade” Nan Orrock, who was my representative for 20 years, during which time I came to understand very well just how radical she is.  ...

Is Lynne Homrich a Conservative? She Says Yes. But I Have Some Questions First.

This is a post about Georgia’s 7th Congressional District. If you want to read about Lynne Homrich, you can skip to below. But first, I want to talk about the Georgia 7th District because the fortunes and failures of mainstream Republicans in the 7th speak volumes about the future of the Party itself.

Currently, Rob Woodall, a mainstream GOP foot soldier, holds the 7th.  Woodall is typical of a certain type of Republican.  He takes easy positions on obvious issues and refuses to take a stand on difficult ones, especially illegal immigration. ...

No, Judith Clark Isn’t A “Reformed Prisoner.” Yes, Her Victims Are Still Dead. And Guess Which Congressional Freshman Supported Her Parole.

Judith Clark in Court Laughing about Cops and Security Officer she Murdered

Cop-hating rag of record the New York Times is once again grotesquely trying to peddle the story that Brinks Robbery cop-killer Judith Clark is now a “reformed person” who deserves the parole Andrew Cuomo just orchestrated for her.  “Ms. Clark, 69 . . . evolved during her long incarceration from a left-wing extremist to a model prisoner known for good works,” the Times lied today.

The “reform” game is one they’ve been playing with unrepentant leftist terrorists like Clark for years.   But as I wrote in 2012, Judith Clark’s purported prison house “good works” are no such thing: they are the same leftist extremism repackaged for a dumber generation of Times subscribers.

Curiously, in 2012, the last time the Times tried to spring Clark, they did so on the grounds that she was still a radical, but a . . . radical for good.  Then, the headline read: “Judith Clark’s Radical Transformation.”  Yes: they actually made a pun about killing two cops and a security guard.

This time they’re saying she “evolved.”  Just like the language commissars at the Times.

We Killed the Hate Crimes Bill in Georgia, Again

20 years ago, I singlehandedly took on the SPLC and the ADL and the NAACP and the incredibly sleazy Rural Urban Summit and the HRC and a score of other alphabet soup organizations and helped kill the hate crimes bill in Georgia with a well-placed op-ed in the Atlanta Journal Constitution that argued these laws are in fact oppressive to speech and destroy equality for victims before the law.

And, oh yeah, that the hate crime activists are bunch of liars about the real uses of these “laws.”

I’m looking at you, Bill Nigut.  Unlike some of your victims, you can’t get me fired by throwing your ADL-abetted weight around, pal.  And trust me, I still remember the first time you twisted a story in my presence — to my benefit because I was a Democrat at the time — but I saw it and had the decency to be appalled for the pro-life activists you were perjuring on the other side.

Some of us have non-selective scruples.  Also, I know who you got fired.

A long, long time ago, when I was knee-high to a grasshopper, Bill Nigut taught me everything I needed to know about media bias.  Maybe I should write a children’s book about it.  Bill would be the grasshopper twisting arms and accusing people of prejudice in order to destroy their lives, then he would hop back to his nest (do grasshoppers live in nests?) and cash all his many checks from public, academic, nonprofit, and private agencies paying him to work some 900 hours a week because he’s that special kind of grasshopper.  Nice gigs if you can get them.  Maybe the state or the IRS should investigate exactly how much time he clocks at all those different jobs.

Probably it would be too gross to be a children’s book.  For example:

Bill Nigut, Investigative Reporter

So here is my anti-hate crime bill editorial this time.  Jesse Smollett helped me write it.  In a way.

My 2000 Atlanta-Journal Constitution Op-Ed Opposing the 2000 Hate Crime Bill in Georgia

In 2000, I published an op-ed in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution opposing a hate crimes bill that eventually passed out of the Georgia Legislature and was signed into law, but not before it was amended to exclude victim categories — in other words, it was amended so that it would apply to anyone, not just to members of certain identity groups.

A sort of ecumenical hate crimes law, like those “coexist” bumper stickers, only not like the people who have them on their cars, who, oddly, strongly prefer both exclusion of and differentiation between all peoples into bloody warring sectionalism when it comes to anyplace other than the rear bumper of their Volvo.

A few years later, the Georgia Supreme Court overturned Georgia’s 2000 non-identity-specific hate crime law on the grounds of vagueness, which is an interesting story for another day.

I can’t seem to find my op-ed in the AJC’s digital archive.  I think they didn’t archive all op-eds at that time because some of my other ones are there.  Or, it’s a vast conspiracy.  Very much likely the former.

I have a crude photocopy of a photocopy that wouldn’t do to reproduce here, so here is the text re-typed by hand.  If anyone better at using this Interweb thing than I, which is virtually all people, can find a link or a legible copy, I’d certainly appreciate it.  Meanwhile, my enemies will certainly attest to its legitimacy.  In terms of it existing, that is.

As for me, in some ways I cringe reading this, though the younger me does make some good logical points.  What a fussy feminist academic hectorer I was!  I’m far less mincingly logical now, yet simultaneously no less accurate.  We’re talking about legislation, for God’s sake, not reality.

Far better to be the vigorous yeoman hectorer of today.

The Problem Isn’t That Morris Dees is a Scumbag. The Problem is That the SPLC is a Scumbag Organization

We all know it, OK?  We in the industry of analyzing “anti-hate activism,” as it were, have always known that Morris Dees AND the organization he uses as a Caribbean tax shelter are scummy.  Even people who support hate crime laws know that the SPLC isn’t exactly singing in the choir: they’re in the back parking lot pimping other people’s pain for serious profit.

Note, for example, this comment from Harper’s Magazine, those well-known Bircher-Strangelove fellow travelers.  You have to pay for this longer story from Harper’s, but it’s worth it.

Better yet, for free, see what James Simpson, Matthew Vadum, Renee Nal, and I have said about this organization over the years.

The tern ineffable comes to mind.  Also, predictable.
