In this past election Democrats failed to denounce anti-Semitism, rioting, looting, the historically inaccurate 1619 Project, and defunding the police. The radical left is now demanding appointments to the Biden cabinet and enactment of the Bernie Sanders agenda. Unless this happens, these groups threaten further nationwide strife. Violence is not a way to reunite the country. Giving Democrats the power to pack the Senate with statehood for D.C. is not a blueprint for cooperation

Two Democrats are challenging Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in the Jan. 5, 2021, runoff election. If John Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are successful, the Democrats will have unblocked access to their radical agenda. Ossoff is a central casting dream with a work experience record and background as thin as his waist, with no leadership history. His main attribute seems to be able to separate California millionaires from their money. Over 90 percent of his funding is from out of state. His films are funded by the Middle East and Chinese communists, all hostile to U.S. policy. His only government experience was a junior staffer for Congressman Hank Johnson, famous for calling Jews termites. Ossoff has not condemned rioting, the Green New Deal or any of Bernie’s job killing ideas. He favors higher taxes and killing the oil industry.

Also running is Raphael Warnock, with a ton of out-of-state money funding photogenic ads high on catch phrases but low on policy ideas. Raphael has no legislative or business experience but has a troubling history of anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian statements, which have never been recanted. Warnock has accused the Israelis of ruthlessly killing Palestinians, but progressive Jews excuse this as just being misunderstood, giving cover to another anti-Israel Democrat.

In three years, President [Donald] Trump obtained three peace treaties for Israel, isolated Iran with sanctions, weakened the largest state sponsor of terrorism, fulfilled a 20-year commitment by moving the embassy to Jerusalem, and recognized Israel’s right to the Golan Heights. Trump also reshaped the peace process by taking away the Palestinian automatic veto of all proposals. He stopped funding Palestinians if they continue to use this money to reward Jew-killing terrorist families. President Elect [Joe] Biden wants to return to the Iran nuclear treaty even though uranium has been enriched for the past three years. He wants to restart the funding of the PLO without any restrictions. Ossoff and Warnock will support these regressive actions and also the restarting of the land-for-peace negotiations, which have been a 30-year failure.

To keep a Congress which compromises and not empower progressive anti-Semitic Democrats (remember, they killed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism) you must vote for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Americans favor a split government representing all views. Both Perdue and Loeffler have a history in leadership, government, charity and business. Experience counts and these two have that experience.
