Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) visited Georgia this weekend, days before the Georgia Senate runoff takes place.
Republican Sen. David Perdue is running for reelection against Democrat Jon Ossoff in a regularly scheduled election and Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler is running against Democrat Raphael Warnock in a special election. Loeffler was appointed to fill former Sen. Johnny Isakson’s seat after he resigned.
Cruz has been fighting to keep Georgia red, warning that if the left control the Senate there will be a packed Supreme Court, a massive tax increase and the statehood of D.C.
“Make no mistake, if the Democrats take the Senate, they intend to change this country not for a year, not for ten years, but for generations. And I’m here to tell you, that ain’t going to happen,” Cruz said on Sunday.
“I’m proud to be here in Georgia because I look out on you and I am inspired. Each of you look around. The men and women who are gathered here, you are patriots,” he continued. “The men and women gathered here and across the state of Georgia are fighting for the United States of America.”
No candidate in either of Georgia’s Senate races won a majority of the vote on Nov. 3, requiring a runoff for both seats, with the top two candidates in each race facing off. The outcome of these two runoff elections on Jan. 5 will determine which party controls the Senate.
The Senate currently stands at 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats.

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances
The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.
The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.
“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.
The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.
Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
