Celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the writing of the Star Spangled Banner--

A Moment of Triumph


Star-Spangled Banner Waves at Fort McHenry

By Navy Seaman Kameren Guy Hodnett
Navy Public Affairs Support Element East

BALTIMORE, Sept. 14, 2014 – Visitors and special guests watched today as members of the U.S. Army’s 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), with the help of War of 1812 re-enactors, hoisted a 15-star, 15-stripe, full-size replica Star-Spangled Banner flag over Fort McHenry here at the “By Dawn’s Early Light” flag-raising ceremony.  Click here



“Then in that hour of deliverance and joyful triumph, my heart spoke.”
— Francis Scott Key recalling the morning of September 14, 1814




By the “dawn’s early light” of September 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key, who was aboard a ship several miles distant, could just make out an American flag waving above Fort McHenry. British ships were withdrawing from Baltimore, and Key realized that the United States had survived the battle and stopped the enemy advance. Moved by the sight, he wrote a song celebrating “that star-spangled banner” as a symbol of America’s triumph and endurance.

The Lyrics

Sing The National Anthem

Francis Scott Key was a gifted amateur poet. Inspired by the sight of the American flag flying over Fort McHenry the morning after the bombardment, he scribbled the initial verse of his song on the back of a letter. Back in Baltimore, he completed the four verses (PDF) and copied them onto a sheet of paper, probably making more than one copy. A local printer issued the new song as a broadside. Shortly afterward, two Baltimore newspapers published it, and by mid-October it had appeared in at least seventeen other papers in cities up and down the East Coast.

This 19th century version (MP3) of the Star-Spangled Banner was performed on original instruments from the National Museum of American History's collection. Arranged by G. W. E. Friederich, the music is played as it would have been heard in 1854.

The Star-Spangled Banner

O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,
’Tis the star-spangled banner - O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto - “In God is our trust,”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.






Debate over uncollected taxes puts spotlight on sale of Deal firm


Posted: 3:41 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29, 2014


By Greg Bluestein - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


The controversial sale of a salvage yard co-owned by Gov. Nathan Deal last year has become fresh fodder in the race for the state’s top job amid a new debate over how vigorously the state should pursue tax cheats.


Democrat Jason Carter’s campaign made clear it would put last year’s sale of the business to Texas-based Copart, which is in a tax dispute with the state, at the center of a new round of attacks this week. It came after Deal’s campaign criticized his plan to more aggressively pursue an estimated $2.5 billion pot of unpaid state taxes to fund education.


The back-and-forth plays into the larger debate that’s roiling the final months of the race for governor. Carter sees the sale as a chance to portray the governor as a politician who used his office to enrich himself. Deal’s campaign views the new attacks as a sign of an increasingly desperate rival grasping to gain traction as November nears.  Read more

DeKalb County missed signs of Boyer’s kickback scheme


By Johnny Edwards and Mark Niesse

 The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


For years, DeKalb County elected officials have been free to run up expenses, with no one inside the government bothering to ask if it was all legitimate.


But The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, then the FBI, dug into the records. Now ex-commissioner Elaine Boyer, the county’s longtime voice of fiscal conservatism, may be heading to federal prison for a $78,000 kickback scheme and taking thousands of dollars more with a county Visa card.


Some simple accounting controls by DeKalb’s money managers could have exposed Boyer’s ruse almost four years ago, the AJC’s continuing investigation has found. Plenty of red flags were.

Team Perdue Update


Today, David Perdue and Michelle Nunn shared the stage for the first time in a forum held in Macon. David did outstanding and carried his positive message throughout the whole debate. 


David was the clear winner. He was focused on the issues Georgians care about, providing positive solutions to the tough problems we face as a country, and fixing what's wrong with Washington. From the onset, Michelle Nunn desperately attempted to attack David and deceive the people of Georgia about her own liberal record and connections to Washington. Nunn reinforced that she will be a rubber stamp for Barack Obama and Harry Reid. Michelle Nunn demonstrated that she's desperate and her internal polls must confirm what the public polls are showing - our message is resonating and we're winning. We only have 75 days to go - with your help we'll be successful on November 4th.

Earlier today at the GA Chamber of Commerce forum, David Perdue sat down with Michelle Nunn. While Nunn just attacked and didn't discuss solutions to the problems Washington is causing, David did.

David offered up fresh ideas to take a different approach in Washington – an approach that will focus on fixing our broken healthcare system, lowering burdensome taxes, slashing spending, and unleashing the full potential of our economy.

Click here to contribute and let’s make sure we send a different kind of candidate to Washington.

Michelle Nunn today further reinforced the idea that she will be nothing more than a proxy for the Obama-Reid agenda in the Senate.

The distinction could not be more clear. Michelle Nunn refuses to acknowledge Obamacare as a complete failure and stated that she will not support a repeal of the train wreck. In fact, she is for expanding Obamacare in Georgia.

We need a common sense leader with solutions in the Senate.

Thank you for your continued support,

Billy Kirkland – Perdue for Senate Campaign Manager

P.S. The Nunn agenda to deceive Georgia is out in the open and we simply cannot afford Nunn in the Senate. Click here to contribute.

Three powerful Georgia boards help bankroll Gov. Nathan Deal


Posted: 2:00 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014

 Three powerful Georgia boards help bankroll Gov. Nathan Deal



 Gov. Nathan Deal, up for re-election in November, gets big financial support from the Georgians he appoints to the state’s top public boards.

Three elite state boards help decide how much students pay for college, how easily goods are moved to and from coastal ports and whether the state’s natural resources are protected.


Members of the Board of Regents, Georgia Ports Authority and Board of Natural Resources also play an out-sized role bankrolling the political campaigns of Gov. Nathan Deal.


More than four-fifths of members on those boards, nearly all of whom were appointed or reappointed by Deal, have contributed nearly $1.3 million to Deal’s campaign and political action committee, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution analysis of campaign records.


That includes money from their businesses and family members, and amounts to about 9 percent of all the money Deal and his political action committee (PAC) have raised since he began his campaign for governor in 2009. By contrast, Deal’s campaign has reported more than 6,000 contributions of $500 or less. Few of those donors have been appointed to major boards. Read more




More Trouble on the Border


August 7, 2014

Mexican Government Complains About Texas National Guard… Rick Perry Ignores them


Texas Gov. Rick Perry decided that President Obama’s inaction regarding the border crisis, which in reality is a strategy being employed to pass amnesty, was no longer acceptable, so he decided to do something about it. Perry announced that he would be deploying 1,000 members of the National Guard to the border to help provide additional security and prevent more illegals from crossing over into the United States. Many in Congress and in state governments across the country have been calling for President Obama to take such steps, but still he refuses to budge.

Good for Governor Perry!!

Jimmy Carter pushes US to recognize hamas, slams Israel in op-ed

Published August 05, 2014


Former President Jimmy Carter once again is getting way out in front of the U.S. government on the Middle East, co-authoring an op-ed in which he calls for Washington to recognize designated terror group Hamas as a legitimate "political actor" -- while blasting Israel for its military campaign in the Gaza Strip.


The scathing column on ForeignPolicy.com was written by Carter and Ireland's former president Mary Robinson.


 The article called the current conflict a "humanitarian catastrophe," and while acknowledging Hamas' "indiscriminate targeting" of Israelis, focused its criticism on Israel.


"There is no humane or legal justification for the way the Israeli Defense Forces are conducting this war," they wrote. "Israeli bombs, missiles, and artillery have pulverized large parts of Gaza, including thousands of homes, schools, and hospitals."


They said "deliberate attacks on civilians" constitute "war crimes" on both sides, though noting far fewer Israelis have been killed in the fighting.


The two "elders" (a group of former statesmen and activists) also pushed the West to formally recognize Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip but is considered a terror group by the U.S. They lauded the recently announced unity agreement between Hamas and Fatah, which controls the West Bank -- an agreement that Obama's State Department has voiced serious concerns about.


"The international community's initial goal should be the full restoration of the free movement of people and goods to and from Gaza through Israel, Egypt and the sea. Concurrently, the United States and EU should recognize that Hamas is not just a military but also a political force," Carter and Robinson wrote. "Hamas cannot be wished away, nor will it cooperate in its own demise. Only by recognizing its legitimacy as a political actor -- one that represents a substantial portion of the Palestinian people -- can the West begin to provide the right incentives for Hamas to lay down its weapons."


Carter has voiced support for Hamas in the past, and in 2009 visited with Hamas

The Number Of Senate Seats Republicans Think They May Win Is Very Surprising


This would put a halt to the liberal agenda. Check it out:

The chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee said Thursday that the likelihood Republicans win back the Senate is better today than when he assumed leadership in 2012.

During a luncheon with reporters, Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said: “Back in the very beginning, I would’ve told you we had six good candidates in six states.”

Now, Moran said, the number of races where Republicans could pick up seats from Democrats has expanded to somewhere in the range of 12 to 14 states.Republicans need to flip six states to win back control of the Senate.

▪ Buck loses recount in Georgia GOP schools race

 By Kristina Torres - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution



The results are in: Mike Buck still lost the GOP race to be Georgia’s next schoolssuperintendent.


Buck requested a recount Tuesday after the initial vote from the July 22 runoff election showed him trailing his opponent by 713 votes out of more than 398,000 cast.

But final recount results on Thursday showed only a vote gained in favor of Buck, the state’s current chief academic officer for the Georgia Department of Education.

Irwin County educator Richard L. Woods is now the Republican nominee to be state superintendent. He will face off in November with Democrat Valarie Wilson, the former chairwoman of the City Schools of Decatur school board.

▪ Georgia GOP race for school superintendent headed for a recount

   By Kristina Torres –The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

L. Mike Buck (for Common Core)    -    R. Richard Woods (against Common Core)

The Georgia GOP race for state schools superintendent is headed for a recount at the request of challenger Mike Buck, the race’s potential loser

Buck requested a new tally of his contest after Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp certifiedthe results Tuesday of last week’s primary runoff elections.

Kemp’s action essentially makes the runoff elections tally official, including Republican U.S. Senate hopeful David Perdue’s tight win over U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston. His action also started the clock on any recount requests, which must be made within two business days.


With no incumbent running, Buck — the state’s current chief academic officer for the Georgia Department of Education — trails Irwin County educator Richard L. Woods by 713 votes out of more than 398,000 cast. It only takes a 1 percent gap to enable a recount request. The race’s current outcome is well within that margin

According to Kemp’s office, the recount will be completed by noon Thursday. A complete listing of runoff results can be found on the secretary of state’s website, www.sos.ga.gov.

#10.    I vote Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want.  I've decided to marry my German Shepherd.

#9.    I vote Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn't.

#8.    I vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

#7.    I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

#6.    I vote Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.  I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that get police to my home to identify my body after a home invasion.

#5.    I vote Democrat because I'm not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

#4.    I vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from those who paid into it.

#3.    I vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves.  They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrat Party sees fit.

#2.    I vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

…And the

 I think it's better to pay $billions$ for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish here in America.  We don't care about the beetles, gophers or fish in those other countries.

For Immediate Release

Tuesday, July 29, 2014



"From rehearsed rhetoric to staged photo ops, high dollar out-of-state fundraisers to contrived political stunts for media attention, Michelle Nunn has every intention to hide her deep-seeded liberal agenda, cover up her questionable tenure at Points of Light, and disguise her affiliations and allegiances all in the name of political expediency.

"It's sad that someone would be so desperate for a title.  Public service is a noble calling for those who are genuinely interested in representing the beliefs of those they serve.  Clearly, Michelle Nunn is more concerned with tricking voters than serving them.  She cares more about winning at all costs than representing our Georgia values in Washington."

▪ 5 reasons David Perdue shocked Georgia’s political world to win GOP Senate nod

By Greg Bluestein and Daniel Malloy - AJC

David Perdue speaks at his runoff victory party (AJC/Hyosub Shin)                                                                  

David Perdue’s stunning victory over Rep. Jack Kingston was both a rebuke to Georgia’s political establishment and a reminder that November will be a very unconventional race. Here are five factors that played into Perdue’s upset victory:

1. Metro Atlanta’s Perdue support offset south Georgia’s Kingston backing.
While Kingston held onto his big margins in south Georgia, Perdue more than wiped him out with big showings in populous metro Atlanta and other urban areas across the state. Perdue’s camp was ecstatic that Kingston’s net margin over Perdue in Savannah’s Chatham County was 12,000 – close to what they expected. If Kingston landed the same vote totals in coastal Georgia he tallied during the May primary, he’d be waking up to a different headline today.

2.  A slow windup and powerful close. Perdue’s camp went up with its infamous “Babies” TV ads early in the primary to define the race. But in the nine-week runoff – the longest in state history – they largely held their fire until the final weeks before the contest. Perdue’s aides said that helped them refuel and better target Kingston. As we’ve noted, Perdue and his allies were vastly outspent by Kingston in metro Atlanta, but spent far more than him elsewhere in the state.  Read more

David Perdue wins Republican Senate nomination

By Daniel Malloy
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Businessman David Perdue stunned Georgia’s Republican political establishment Tuesday by capturing the party’s U.S. Senate nomination in his first run for office.

The former CEO of Reebok and Dollar General toppled 11-term Rep. Jack Kingston by a narrow margin, setting up a battle of political newcomers with famous kin in the fall. Perdue’s cousin, Sonny, was a two-term governor and Nunn’s father, Sam, was a four-term U.S. Senator.

In addition to his famous last name and lingering political network from his cousin, Perdue deployed $3 million of his own money to back his bid. Still, he was outspent by Kingston and allied Super PACs – including the deep pocketed U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Kingston conceded the race as late-arriving metro Atlanta counties seemed to give Perdue a narrow win. Kingston hoped his south Georgia base would power him to victory, but lighter-than-expected turnout hobbled his chance.

July 22, 2014 - 11:30 PM

This helps restore my faith in our election process!   I was afraid that huge amounts of money from sources like the Chamber of Commerce and special interest groups plus a candidate willing to tell blatant lies on his opponent had ruined our election process.  Our Georgia Republican voters were smart enough to see through this.  Thank you Georgia voters! -- BKC


Republican voters in Georgia chose David Perdue as their Senate nominee after a bruising nine-week runoff.

Businessman Perdue beat Rep. Jack Kingston by just over 1 percent in a late night finish. Kingston conceded the race just before 11 p.m.

Perdue will compete against Democrat Michelle Nunn for a seat Republicans can ill afford to lose as they look to take control of the Senate.

The race between Kingston and Perdue remained neck-and-neck throughout most of Tuesday night.

It was 18 months on the campaign trail, including 15 debates and thousands of calls to voters.

The closely-watched campaign was shaped largely by each candidate's personal history rather than the issues. The two are both conservatives in a state that has been dominated in recent years by Republicans who hold every statewide office.

The race focused on whether Kingston's 11 terms in Congress were an asset or a liability, a sign he's a proven conservative or part of the gridlock in Washington. Voters apparently believed he was part of the gridlock in Washington.

My Husband


In case you missed this beautiful letter from Bonnie Perdue. . . she is a GREAT Christian wife and mother. Please forward this to anyone you know who would find this interesting.

Bettye Chambers
Buford, GA



I’m Bonnie Perdue. My husband David is running for the U.S. Senate. I'm writing you to ask for your vote and trust for David tomorrow. 

David and I grew up in Warner Robins. In fact, we met in elementary school. His parents were public school educators. David worked on his family farm and worked his way through Georgia Tech on the warehouse floor. He’s a shining example of how the greatness of America and her promise can be achieved through hard work, determination and faith.

We’ve been married 42 years and have two wonderful grown sons and three precious young grandsons. He’s always been a great dad and now he’s a proud grandfather. David’s never run for office before, but he believes the next generation deserves better than what the career politicians in Washington are leaving them.  

As I travel across our great state, I hear from Georgians who are concerned about the economy, the debt and jobs. David is uniquely qualified to solve these important issues. He’s spent his career creating jobs, balancing budgets and turning around troubled companies. He understands how government regulations passed by out-of-touch politicians are destroying businesses - he’s experienced it first hand.

David has always been a leader. He’s never afraid to take a stand for what he believes regardless of what others say or do. Doesn’t Washington need more people like that?

David grew up with the values of honesty, hard work, morals and trust in God. He has been a deacon and a Sunday school teacher because David lives by the values he learned growing up.

I believe Georgians are ready for real leadership.  It’s time to hold the people who created this mess accountable – the career politicians. If we continue to send the same people to Washington, we’ll continue to get the same results.

I know David will make a real difference in Washington and that is why he’s running. I promise he won’t disappoint you and I humbly ask you to vote for him tomorrow. 

With Kindest Regards,

Bonnie Perdue

P.S. – You can learn more about where David stands on the issues at www.PerdueSenate.com.

Survey Robo Calls from Kingston Camp

Following e-mail is from a Republican friend in South Georgia in Kingston's district:

"Bettye:  Jack Kingston is desperate.  Yesterday, our County Chair got a recorded call. He has probably gotten ten and I have not received one.  They asked if he was voting for Kingston or Perdue.  He punched 2 for Perdue.  The voice then said, "David Perdue is for Common Core.  In light of this information, who would you vote for Kingston or Perdue."   Again, he punched 2 for Perdue.  Then the voice said "David Perdue is for Open borders.  In light of this information, they said would you vote for Kingston or Perdue."  Again he punched 2 for Perdue.  So then they hung up.  

Why is this allowed?  It is out and out lies! We all know that David Perdue is AGAINST Common Core and AGAINST open borders. Even if he were for Common Core and open borders, he would still be better than Jack Kingston, who is for whatever people pay him to be.  You can look at the National Chambers' agenda and you will get a good idea of what he is for, whether he likes it or not, because they own him lock, stock and big ego in a little man's body! "

This sounds like the Kingston camp is making a survey of GA GOP County Chairs to find out how they are going to vote. It is so sad that Kingston or any candidate has stooped this low.  What has happened to integrity in our Republican primaries?  We are not surprised when the Democrats run campaigns like this -- but we expect more from Republicans!  No wonder good people are reluctant to run for an elected office when this is the way they are treated. Is there no decency left  in politics? Hope they are not working on another slimy TV ad.  Have any of you received this recorded call? - VRG webmaster

Georgia Ethics Probe 2014

Ethics memo raises big questions for GA Governor Deal

Posted: 12:00 a.m. Saturday, July 19, 2014 By Aaron Gould Sheinin and James Salzer -
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - In Sunday  paper edition




Read very lengthy and informative story in AJC

State ethics commission director Holly LaBerge was taking a vacation from a job she’d held less than a year when a text message popped into her personal cellphone from Gov. Nathan Deal’s chief of staff.

“So, since you are at the beach, with your feet in the sand and probably something cold to drink. Does this mean we can resolve all the DFG (Deal for Governor) issues by Monday?:),” Chris Riley wrote in a message sent July 16, 2012, concluding his text with the emoticon for “smiley face.”

Dear Patriot, 

This is Herman Cain and I've got an urgent message about the run-off election for U.S. Senate on July 22nd. We know people who have spent too much time in Washington DC have a hard time distinguishing between fact and fiction. The attacks against David Perdue are false and have been called "distortions" by outside groups and independent fact checkers.


This happened to me when I ran, so I know what it's like. I'm strongly supporting David Perdue for US Senate and I think it's time to set the record straight. 

Simply put: The attacks against David Perdue are not true. Don't believe them. 

I believe you deserve to know the truth!

  • David Perdue opposes amnesty. 
  • David Perdue opposes Obamacare. 
  • David Perdue opposes Common Core. 
  • David Perdue opposes raising taxes. 
  • David Perdue opposes the bailout. 
  • David Perdue opposes the stimulus bill. 
  • David Perdue supports the 2nd amendment. 
  • David Perdue supports the FairTax. 
  • David Perdue is Pro-Life.  

These are the facts - David Perdue is the true conservative outsider. 

David has a distinguished career in the private sector helping grow businesses for 42 years and he's never run for political office. That worries the politicians and political class in Washington. They know he'll change the status quo and challenge the establishment. He's an outsider and that's exactly what we need in Washington. They can't control David Perdue, so the PACs and lobbyists have lined up with his opponent. But together, we the people, can win this race and take our country back.  

Please join me in supporting David Perdue for US Senate. 

Thank you and God Bless! 

Herman Cain

Jack Kingston has Surrendered on Obamacare

By: Daniel Horowitz (Diary) on Red State -

Democrats are stewing in the misery of Obamacare’s disastrous side effects.  We have a solid point of leverage coming in January to fight Obamacare in the budget.  As we’ve explained, we have stronger leverage this time around than we did in October.  However, that leverage is only predicated upon a united Republican Party committed to getting rid of Obamacare.  Sadly, the recent comments by Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) suggesting that we should help fix the law serve as a vivid illustration of why we failed the battle to defund the law. . . .

The scary thing is that Kingston is the chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on healthcare.  What is ever scarier is that he wants to be the next U.S. Senator from Georgia.  We all know that the Senate has a way of turning those who are conservatives into statists.

Herman Cain sets the record straight about the attacks against David Perdue. Click here to listen to this radio ad. Learn more about David Perdue at https://perduesenate.com/ 

If you are happy with the way things are going in our Congress (which has a 9% approval rating), then vote for the establishment and career politician, Jack Kingston, who has been in the GA State Legislature and Congress for 30 years.  If you are not happy with our Congress, then vote for the “outsider” David Perdue who is the experienced business leader who can actually make a difference. He has the courage and determination to get the job done and will challenge the status quo. He is not tied to the demands of the establishment, lobbyists or the liberal Chamber of Commerce which backs Kingston.  Regardless of what you hear, David Perdue is very opposed to Common Core.

I hope to see you at Curt’s Wednesday morning and also in Forsyth County on Saturday.  If you have not yet met David Perdue, you owe it to yourself to do so.  He is the REAL thing.  PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS!

Many thanks!
