There is an awful lot of misinformation being floated about the two senatorial runoffs that will take place in Georgia on January 5th. Repeating it only provides credence to baldfaced lies.
Instead here is the straightforward truth, courtesy of pro-life Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy.
Appearing Tuesday on “Fox News @ Night,” hosted by Shannon Bream, Sen. Kennedy was asked by Bream, “What’s in the balance there?”
“I’m not going to bubble wrap it. The election in Georgia is really a second presidential election. That’s how important it is. If the Democrats win in Georgia, the Republican Senate will lose its majority. In charge will be Senator Schumer, Senator Bernie Sanders, Speaker Pelosi, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez. And their ideas, in my opinion, are three gallons of crazy. … Do most Americans really want to be governed by people who celebrate abortion? I don’t.”
What does Sen. Kennedy mean by a “second presidential election”? He’s talking about the fallout if two pro-abortion Georgia Democrats were to defeat two pro-life Republican incumbents.
There are currently 50 Senate Republicans. There would be 50 Senate pro-abortion Democrats if Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff were to win runoffs against Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Sen. David Perdue, respectively. The tie-breaking vote would be cast by the Vice President in their role as President of the Senate.

Democrats still maintain control of the House of Representatives (by a much narrower margin than we were told would be the case) and the campaign of pro-abortion Joe Biden is fending off charges votes were improperly tabulated in a number of key states.
Were The Rev. Warnock and Mr. Ossoff to prevail in just over a month, and if Biden/Kamala Harris are certified as President/Vice President, Democrats would control all the levers of legislative and executive power. They would be both empowered to promote a genuinely, no-exaggeration radical abortion agenda and emboldened to take dead aim and your and my right of religious freedom/freedom of conscience.
None of this is speculation.
They’ve floating everything from packing the Supreme Court with reliably pro-abortion justices (the number of justices hasn’t changed since the middle of the 19th century), picking our pockets to pay for millions of elective abortions, and alerting us in no uncertain terms that if we have religious and/or conscientious objections to being involved in any way with abortion, well, that’s too bad.
Sen. Kennedy said it all very succinctly, including this closing gem:
“Do most Americans really want to be governed by people who think that they, the governed, are morons, by people who don’t respect our ideas, and who think they’re better than us? I think that’s what you’re going to get if Schumer, Pelosi, Ocasio-Cortez, and Bernie Sanders are in charge.”
