Anatomy of Corruption
Americans are just now realizing how close to the brink of oblivion we were had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election. Nothing could be more palimpsest than the quickly unfolding layers of official corruption, once denied, that is the “Deep State.” There’s one and its tentacles run deep.
Mueller’s inquiry left no stone unturned in trying to prove that Trump and/or his campaign team colluded with the Russians causing the anointed one, Queen Hillary, to lose, while avoiding completely Hillary Clintons and the DNC’s real collusion with the Russians. Answer to those questions now fall to Attorney General Barr who’s already batting away the tears of fear from those who will be affected. The Buck should stop at Obama. He owns it all.
As Atty. General Barr’s investigations commence into finding the cause and effect, the Who, What, Where, When and Why any investigation requires, the How shows the starting results that the conspirators own clumsiness revealed. It makes gangrene look good by comparison.
Government normally works like a poorly oiled machine with lines of communication up and down, often interrupted by mid-level managers who don’t like the goals sought or want to alter already decisions made. The now revealed layers of corruption shows how deep the rot had permeated the FBI, DoJ, CIA, IRS and DCI, each with some law enforcement element to it that could send any one of us to prison, for anything or for nothing. Scary!
In ancient times, groups of similar’s gathered together for protection. A leader was selected based upon his ability to fight and protect them (Clans). Societies then divide themselves into smaller groups (Septs) under the titular leadership of the main Chief by cooperation and agreement and acknowledgement of that up chain of command. Its called respect.
In our times, leadership, like in Congress, by right, goes to the oldest, not the best. When those groups divide because they don’t get along, then leadership has to be decisively brutal. For example, Nancy Pelosi, a nitwit, is “Speaker” not because she’s a tough leader who drinks wine from the skulls of her enemies, but because she’s the oldest. AOC on the other hand, in her first two months in her tribe, has already challenged Pelosi for the leadership, not practically, but figuratively because people naturally follow the popular leader.
Too retain their power, and its ‘perks,’ a leader, including their hangers-on, have to be respected. Where is it in the Democrat Party today? Twenty-three Democrat wannabe’s presidents clawing with each other for hegemony over the others, only stopping short of bashing in the others skulls?
They do this while Americas real Clan Chief, the wizard of human relations, Donald Trump, contemptuously looks down from his seat in the Oval Office and mocks them cruelly for their incompetence, ignorance and weakness. Trump has shown Americans what Presidential leadership should be. Interruptions to the flow of authority by deep state implants will soon end. Trump will then be free to continue breaking away the chains of socialism the Democrats have been hanging around American’s necks for decades. Disrespectful threats to Trumps leadership fall off his back like water off a ducks back.
Who can have any respect for Rep. Jerry Nadler or Adam Schiffer, whiners both, incapable of striking a fatal blow. They are leaders because of being in Congress far too long, not because they know what the hell they’re doing. But they can do no less because they too have been corrupted by the very machine they live in, political power. Nadler has his ‘subpoena power’ How’s that working for him? Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (19May19)
I might consider it important to be even remotely concerned by the result of the Manafort, Cohen
witch trials, that are solely designed to reverse the voters choice in 2016, when I see Hillary
Clinton and her cabal of criminal enablers headed for prison or the hangman’s scaffold.
Every member of the “deep state” that supported the Hillary Clinton nonsense after the election,
dedicated to bringing down Trump, has engaged in a treasonous act that screams for retribution
yet, there she is, reorganizing herself, ostensibly to have another go in 2020 at ruining America.
Trump threw a dagger into the heart of the forth estate, the Left Wing Media, when he called
them the enemy of the state and they can’t pull the dagger out because he was right. When the
media fails to report news as it happens but becomes instead, shills for socialism, doing all in
their power to ignore Trumps triumphs while conniving to implicate him in unproven collusion
schemes that Hillary Clinton and the DNC cooked up, then they correctly stand accused.
Why does the Left Wing media ignore another brutal murder of an American citizen by an
Illegal, once a DACA claimant, by referring to the victim, in passing, as “that girl in Iowa?” Why
does Pocahontas, a wanna-be Socialist candidate for President, when asked her opinion about
the brutal murder of young Mollie Tibbett's by an illegal alien, answer with some slop about
babies being separated from their families at the border? The murders of Americans by illegal
immigrants, like Mollie Tibbett's in Iowa and Kate Steinlie in San Francisco, make no impression
at all on members of the POPO (Party of Perpetual Outrage), i.e.: the Democrats. Why?
Because they simply do not care. They need voters and as both those young murdered women,
and others, are already dead, their opinion doesn’t count anymore.
PoPo’s give no thought of course that both of the girls were separated from their own families,
forever. If the People are the State, then yes, the media stands as its enemy. “The enumeration
in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained
by the people”… 9th amendment. Perhaps the people need to establish courts to address these
high crimes and misdemeanors by government officials, if those we pay to protect us, won’t.
Yes, I realize we’re talking “extra-judicial” proceedings here but the point must come, as surely it
will, that for its own protection the “deplorable’s” must take preemptive action or be crushed
under the heel of totalitarianism. It’s the reason it’s important to preserve the 2nd amendment.
The PoPo’s have no compunction launching their Antifa’s and BLM’s against us, do they?
Michale Cohen, Trump’s once personal legal adviser, wasn’t found guilty of anything. He simply
agreed to a plea bargain with the devil. The issue of Trump’s alleged collusion, after a years
intrusion by Mueller into what has already been exposed as a PoPo scheme directed by Hillary
Clinton and facilitated by the corrupted DoJ and FBI, still go unanswered. We are told Hillary
was exonerated (by FBI Director Comey). How can that possibly be? Where in all the
Constitutional rules that govern America’s laws, does an FBI Director have the power of
exonerating any criminal without at least a Grand Jury proceeding? And that’s DoJ’s job.
Yet, despite all the schemes of the ‘PoPo’s, there stands Trump still erasing the legacy of the
most harmful president we have ever experienced. Trump is saving America and the PoPo’s
can’t take it anymore. Trump’s filled rallies are proof enough of that. He speaks to the people
and the people, the real state, are listening.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way, now, go get’m (22Aug18).

In a surprise announcement, the Gilmer County Charter School System Superintendent Dr. Shanna Wilkes told attendees to the Board of Educations work session Monday night they had hope.
With citizens outcry and even petitions signed to plead with the School Board to make Graduation on the Football Field a possibility, not many believed the idea would actually be possible due to Construction activity and safety hazards. However, Dr. Wilkes told citizens Monday that, due to the tireless efforts of the Parrish Construction Group, students are going to be able to hold their Commencement Ceremonies at Huff Mosley Stadium this Friday.
Unfortunately, this news comes with a sour note as a bleak weather forecast may still force attendees indoors after all. The Board will be forced to make a final decision Wednesday as to where to hold the ceremony so that setup and other preparations can begin.
Wisconsin’s aftermath and the coming political storm…
Who is out? Who is in? Where’s the nominee?
Elections and primaries dot the land as America marches toward its next presidency, no matter what it brings.
For immediate release
Emergency Room/Department to close.
Effective March 1, 2016, North Georgia Medical Center will be closing its Emergency Room/Department, thus no longer providing ER services for an indefinite period of time. It is the hospital’s hope that this measure is a temporary one and the decision was forced upon the hospital due to financial reasons. This change will allow the hospital to maintain a financial position that allows it to continue its mission and provide key services to the Gilmer County service area.
Hospital leadership has reviewed this proposal and confirmed that it will not create any change to its current licensure status. Additionally, the hospital leadership has also confirmed that it will not impact the hospital’s accreditation status with the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JCAHO).
This change does not affect Gilmer Nursing Home or the physicians based at the Medical Offices of North Georgia. Incidentally, most of the hospital services will remain the same, including outpatient and inpatient care, surgery, swing bed rehabilitation and nursing home care. Departments such as laboratory, radiology, and respiratory will continue to operate and see patients with only a change in the hours that those services will be available. Employees that will be affected by the ER closure will be offered assistance finding other positions if they desire.
North Georgia Medical Center has faced a number of obstacles over the years, but its commitment to the community is the same and we encourage the community to support your local hospital. In light of all the financial burdens, hospital leadership believes this action is the best option to maintain its mission and sustain as many employees as possible. Please feel free to contact Katie Lancey, CNO or Earl Whiteley, CEO, 706-276-4741, if you have any questions or require further information regarding this changes for our organization.

Some voters are going the opposite direction of the pundits’ predictions. All the mathematicians on the Sunday morning shows were figuring out where all the votes would go now that Jeb Bush is out of the race and if Dr. Ben Carson and Ohio Governor John Kasich would get out of the race.
Sixty-seven percent of voters did not vote for Donald Trump in South Carolina. This could be heard by Marco Rubio during all of his Sunday morning interviews. I pick up that Rubio wants to call out Donald Trump on foreign policy. Rubio realizes a direct attack on Trump about his relationship with democrats or something Trump has said in the past is not working. Watch in the next debate how the media may help Rubio set Trump up on foreign policy. Rubio will call Trump out all week on foreign policy and the moderator will open up with, “Mr. Trump your opponent Marco Rubio has questioned your foreign policy.” Just say’in.
Trump beat everyone in South Carolina. He beat all the candidates, the sitting Governor Nikki Haley, Congressman Trey Gowdy, Senators Tim Scott and Lindsey Graham, not to mention several other congressmen. The guy you want to be today in South Carolina is Lieutenant Governor Henry McMaster. McMaster supported Trump and stood behind him during his victory speech in South Carolina. Trump won every county except two and walked away with all 50 South Carolina delegates. Rubio won the two counties and Ted Cruz did not win a single county.
Ted Cruz campaigned in South Carolina like there was no tomorrow. Cruz looked beaten in all his post election interviews. Although he will not admit it, Cruz knew that if evangelicals voted for Trump he was in big trouble. Cruz is in big trouble.
Cruz voters will not move to Rubio. If Cruz voters feel he can’t win they may just move over to Trump and that has started to happen.
Ed Singleton, owner of Singleton Food Services, Inc (Singleton operates 17 Subway stores in North Georgia and North Carolina) posted Sunday on his Facebook page a picture “Trump 2016” and made the following statement, “After a 3rd place finish in SC for Cruz, I am now jumping on the Trump bandwagon. I believe Trump will be a small business champion for my 17 Subway stores!” Singleton was previously supporting Cruz.
Ted Cruz needs to have wins throughout the south. The best the campaign can come up with this morning is: Cruz is the only true conservative in the race and the only one who can beat Trump. Cruz may be the true conservative in the race and as for the Iowa caucus he did have the best ground game. And we still don’t know how many votes went his way after the robocalls telling voters that Dr. Ben Carson was leaving the race.
The Cruz campaign threw everything including the kitchen sink at South Carolina. The establishment will definitely do everything to support Rubio. It’s a battle for the Republican Party. The Cruz campaign may be the ones outside the party looking in.
I, Phillip Andrew Lowman, would like to announce my candidacy for Gilmer County Probate Judge. I have been fortunate enough to call this wonderful place my home for the majority of my life. My family has lived in and been a part of Gilmer County since the late 1800’s. I attended school with many of you, from my early education at Oakland Elementary all the way through Gilmer High School. I have worked with and learned from many of you, and now would be honored to have the opportunity to work for you.
The Probate Judge in Gilmer County is responsible for overseeing and ruling on a wide range of issues. As such, the Probate Judge must have the requisite knowledge to understand and apply the appropriate law to each case presented to the Court. The laws that govern the Probate Court are ever changing and the Probate Judge must have the ability to adapt to these changes, studying and understand the laws as they are modified or changed by the legislature, and have the ability to interpret decisions issued by the state’s higher courts.
The Probate Judge oversees the filing and probate of wills, the administration of an estate where no will exists, and the filing of Years Support petitions for a surviving spouse or minor child. In addition, the Probate Judge is responsible for hearing and ruling on all contested matters related to wills and/or the administration of an estate, which are frequently contested and can be extremely complex.
The Probate Judge is responsible for ruling on Petitions for Guardianship and Conservatorship, whether it be for a minor or incapacitated adult. The Probate Judge hears most traffic violations such as speeding and DUI, and decides disputes over right of ways and boundary lines. The Probate Judge is responsible for issuing firearms carry permits and marriage licenses, and maintains all birth and death records.
I believe that I am uniquely qualified for the position of Probate Judge as I am currently a private attorney focusing a large part of my practice on probate law. I have represented countless clients with probate matters throughout the probate courts in North Georgia. I consistently assist clients with the preparation of wills, and have represented numerous clients with probating wills. I have represented clients in highly contested legal disputes concerning the validity of a will or disputes concerning the administration of an estate where no will existed. I have represented numerous clients in their efforts to obtain Guardianships and/or Conservatorships for their loved ones. I have represented clients with disputes over right-of-ways in the probate court, and I consistently represent clients being charged criminally in the probate courts. I have served in the probate courts as a Court appointed Guardian Ad Litem for minor children and incapacitated adults. I have served as a Court appointed Conservator in the probate court, and currently serve as one of two County Administrator’s for the Pickens County Probate Court. In addition to probate law, my law practice has also consisted of representing clients with complex real estate matters, criminal matters, and social security disability.
I believe that experience is key to making sure that the people of Gilmer County are treated with the fairness, accountability, and integrity they deserve. I plan to use the experience I have gained to ensure that the Probate Court of Gilmer County is a level playing field for all those in need, with no exceptions. If elected, I pledge to see that the Gilmer County Probate Court operates efficiently and in a manner that the people of Gilmer County expect.
After graduating from Gilmer High School in 2003, I attended Kennesaw State University and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science. I then attended the Mercer University School of Law and graduated in 2011. After graduating from law school, I returned to the Law Office of William C. “Chuck” McCurdy where I have worked since I was 18. Since rejoining the firm as an attorney, my practice has continued to grow, and I consistently represent clients throughout the North Georgia area, primarily focusing on Gilmer, Pickens and Fannin Counties.
My parents are Phillip L. and Lisa Lowman. My Grandparents are the late Ranell Lowman and Ruth Weaver Lowman. My wife, Alicia, and I have one daughter, Emma.
I truly appreciate all the support I have received so far. I would be honored to serve the people of Gilmer County, and I plan to provide the high level of professionalism and fairness that the people of Gilmer County deserve. As we move forward through this election, I ask for your prayers, support, and your vote in the upcoming Republican Primary election in May of 2016.
Standing as her announcement, Probate Judge Anita Mullins has decided to not run a campaign in the coming Gilmer elections. With emotional tears she spoke the words, “I won’t be running for Probate Judge again.”
Having celebrated her 65th Birthday in August, Judge Mullins referenced a retirement focus on her family as the reason behind this announcement. Judge Mullins cares for her mother, who just turned 86. She has two children, Julie and David Mullins, and five grandchildren. With one joining the military, one working with a power company, one in High School, one in college, and the youngest only 5 years old, Mullins says her 23 year commitment to the county has to give way to personal life.
However, Mullins also stated, “I took the job to help people. I wanted to help and work for the people of this county, and whether I am a Judge or not, I will continue to help people whenever I can. I’m not a politician, I just do a job and service for citizens as the law would allow me to… I have never regretted the work I do, but I have missed certain events with the family.”
She has actually been in public service since her teenage years, Judge Mullins joined the Probate Office in 1993, then became Judge in September of 2003. With this announcement her consecutive terms will end on December 31, 2016.
Though she leaves the office, Mullins says she takes many things with her, from the chances to meet people all over the county and all over the world to a better understanding of people. Being both “a student and a leader” in the position requires you never stop learning. “It has been wonderful working here, I love my staff, they’re wonderful… You can’t do this job without them.”
When talking about serving the community, FYN asked Judge Mullins if she would ever be willing to sit with the next Probate Judge elected to pass on her knowledge and wisdom. “If that person wants the help, I understand things just from being here so long.” Though a hectic year lies ahead with the election process, Judge Mullins said she would make time for any candidate elected to help out.
Already offering her piece of key advice, Mullins warns candidates, “Don’t let the job consume you… I’ve let it consume some things through late nights.”
This announcement begs the question from the citizens, without an incumbent, will we see more candidates announcing? FYN will continue to follow announcements and campaigns in the coming months.
Returning to her family, Judge Mullins looks forward to the next adventure as a grandmother and devoting more time to her hobbies of crafting and sewing. With her recent 65th birthday and the family growing, the Judge simply said, “It’s just time.”
