Burgess Owens defends new Georgia voter laws

Rep. Burgess Owens, R-UT, defended Georgia’s new voter legislation against Democrats who claim the new laws are a return to the era of Jim Crow.

Owens gave a few examples of what were actual Jim Crow measures and explained how Georgia’s voter laws do not compare to the dividing and segregative measures that were known as Jim Crow laws on Thursday’s episode of “The Ingraham Angle.”

Ingraham began listing real Jim Crow laws that existed in the southern U.S. states from the post-Civil War era until around 1968:

  • No colored barber shall serve as as a barber to white women or girls.
  • All persons licensed to conduct a restaurant, shall serve either white people exclusively or colored people exclusively.
  • It shall be unlawful for a white person to marry anyone except a white person.

Owens shared that he, his dad and his grandfather all grew up in the Jim Crow south. “I was 16 years old when I finally had the chance to experience meeting white Americans,” Owens told Ingraham.

“I grew up in a community that was all segregated. A very proud community, by the way. And Laura let me say this, I’m sick and tired of the hard left and these black elitists putting my race down and putting the greatest generation that ever lived down,” Owens said.

“My dad’s generation and my grand dad’s generation loved our country. They were about meritocracy and proving that they are worthy of respect by commanding respect. So to hear that we are half this hopeless race? No, that’s marxism, that’s lies, that’s not my race or my parents I was raised with. I’m so thankful I grew up around the people I did in the 1960s.”

President Joe Biden called Georgia’s new voter legislation “Jim Crow on steroids” and said he would “strongly support” moving the MLB All-Star game out of the state.

“Look at what’s happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right,” Biden said during an interview with ESPN on Wednesday. “This is Jim Crow on steroids, what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states.”

Ingraham fired back at Biden and reminded viewers what Jim Crow laws were actually like for baseball players in the south.

A Jim Crow law that was enacted in Georgia stated, “It shall be unlawful for any amateur colored baseball team to play baseball in any vacant lot or baseball diamond within two blocks of any playground devoted to the white race.”

The All-Star Game is set to occur on July 13 at the Atlanta Braves’ Truist Park.

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
