Serving and sacrificing for our country gives no license for calumnies on a real Christian Patriot
As is written elsewhere, the state of Georgia is the last stand from a complete Democrat takeover of the Presidency, the House and the Senate.
Election Day in U.S. Senate races, 35 total including 2 special elections, yielded the Democrats a net gain of 1 seat, successfully flipping the U.S. Senate seats in Arizona and Colorado, while seeing Republicans flip the Alabama seat.
Since Arizona was one of the 2 special elections, U.S. Senator Mark Kelly was sworn-in this past week after Arizona certified its election results.
The Senate breakdown right now (through end of 116th Congress):
- Republicans: 52
- Democrats: 46
- Independents: 2 (both caucus with Democrats)
Republicans successfully defended several key states, including Maine (Susan Collins), South Carolina (Lindsey Graham), North Carolina (Thom Tillis), Texas (John Cornyn), Iowa (Joni Ernst) and several other states.
Similar to the House, the Democrats did not flip the 5 to 8 seats many were predicting.
Then comes the state of Georgia, where both Senate seats were up this year, both a special election where nearly 2 dozen candidates on a blanket ballot, including appointed Senator Kelly Loeffler placed 2nd to Democrat Raphael Warnock, the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Warnock came nowhere near the 50%+1 majority to avoid a runoff, which was expected for January 5, 2021.
The regular Senate term has 1st term incumbent Senator David Perdue against former congressional candidate Jon Ossoff. The Libertarian candidate took enough votes to keep Senator Perdue from achieving the 50%+1 majority needed to win his 2nd term.
The January 5, 2021 runoff will decide effective control of the U.S. Senate in the 117th Congress, with Democrats needing the sweep to have a 50-50+1 majority, with Kamala Harris’ tiebreaker the deciding vote.
In this week’s McHenry County Blog article announcing the weekly Sunday “Stop the Steal” rally in Schaumburg, comments bring up the Georgia U.S. Senate runoffs including the tragic death Friday morning of an aide in Senator Loeffler’s campaign staff. This article will not cover the tragedy, or the conspiracy theories given the man killed was dating the daughter of Republican Governor Brian Kemp.
Today’s article focus is the disappointment I have in Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R, TX-02), who attacked Atlanta-based attorney Lin Wood, a firm supporter of President Trump fighting to expose election fraud last month and predicting the same Dominion Voting Systems will be used to insure the two Democrat candidates win the Georgia U.S. Senate runoffs.
Embedded in the tweet from Daily Beast Contributing Editor Justin Baragona is video at a Wednesday rally with Sidney “the Kraken” Powell and GA Democrat State Representative Vernon Jones looking on, calling for Republican incumbent Senators Perdue and Loeffler to support President Trump openly by calling for Governor Kemp to call for a special session of the Georgia Legislature to take action on the voter fraud apparent last month.
Crenshaw responded with this tweet, transcribed for ease of reading:
“Lin Wood is a Democrat that wants Republicans to self-destruct.
“Just because he wears a MAGA hat does not mean he shares a single value with you.
“He just wants your donations for his legal fees.
“He’s a grifter.
“VOTE IN GEORGIA. PROTECT THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE LAST 4 YEARS.”Dan Crenshaw tweet 12/3/20
Conservative Leader Michelle Malkin, like many witnessing Crenshaw’s clear disrespect of the 68 years old Wood who defended Richard Jewell, Nicholas Sandmann and instrumental to raising Kyle Rittenhouse’s $2 million bail last month through #FightBack Foundation, retweeted to Crenshaw’s tweet with her comment:
“Dan Crenshaw is a globalist John McCain in an eyepatch who loves to party hardy while our country burns.
“PROTECT OUR ELECTION SYSTEM & OUR COUNTRY, NOT THE GOP SWAMP!”Michelle Malkin tweet 12/3/20
Crenshaw, seeing Malkin has over 2 million Twitter followers compared to his 1.1 million, replied to Malkin with even more disrespect:
“Hey genius, your comments are packed with Democrats cheering you on. You are an absolute joke.
“And ‘party hardy’? What does that even mean?”Dan Crenshaw tweet 12/4/20
Crenshaw acting with the maturity of a Millennial who doesn’t practice one of the social mores of “respecting your elders”. One can disagree with someone respectfully. Crenshaw did not.
And the 50 years old Malkin using a GenX term “party hardy” doesn’t take away from what she said. Crenshaw’s disrespectful use of “genius” in the context of his tweet reply borders narcissistic behavior.
New York based musician/songwriter Toots Sweet, who co-hosts Patriots in Tune social media podcasts during the week, tweeted which prompted me to respond which sums up what Crenshaw did to Wood and Malkin:
I am very saddened with what Crenshaw has done with his insulting tweets against two genuine Christian Patriots like Lin Wood and Michelle Malkin.
Wood tweeted out two responses Thursday night, which are transcribed and consolidated below:
“I am not a Democrat.
“I am independent.
“I have not taken dime in fees from #FightBack Foundation.
“I donated $650+ to Republicans in 2020.
“I voted for Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush 43 & 41 (mistakes) & Donald Trump (twice).
“Grifter? I am a Patriot. You are a liar.
“I respect your service & sacrifice for country, Dan.
“But I have lost respect for you given your false attacks on me for speaking truth & more importantly, your failure to support Donald Trump & attack election fraud, Dan.”Lin Wood tweets 12/3/20
In addition to Crenshaw, Wood was attacked by Newt Gingrich, Senator Ted Cruz and Breitbart News for the statements he said this week at the rally challenging Senators Perdue and Loeffler to earn Georgians’ votes.
I have to say, Lin Wood speaks for me with what is happening in his home state of Georgia, and I pray through Wood’s leadership, ALL of the points being brought up will be addressed between now and January 5 in an honorable and cooperative way, and achieve the victories on January 5 to save our country from the Leftist takeover.
