A Democratic Georgia state legislator who endorsed Donald Trump reversed his plans to resign from office on Thursday, explaining that he wouldn’t allow the Democratic Party to bully him into submission.
Vernon Jones became a target for ire from members of his party when he announced his support of President Trump and the ‘MAGA’ agenda. He soon announced that he would resign from office, reacting to a flood of condemnation from progressive Democrats incensed by his decision to embrace the President.
Jones had previously cited President Trump’s progress on lowering the black unemployment rate, his support of historically black colleges, and criminal justice reform as causes for him to cross party lines and endorse his reelection.
“It’s very simple to me. President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse his campaign… There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before,” Jones said. “When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”
But Jones appears to have changed his mind about resignation, announcing that he’d fulfill his term in office and campaign for the President’s re-election in Georgia.
Yesterday, I announced my intentions to resign from my office. But shortly thereafter, the outpour of support I received was too great for me to ignore.
I will not allow the Democrats to bully me into submission. I will not let them win.

“I am going to remain on the battlefield… I am going to complete my term. I am going to continue to put my country before my party. And I will do everything I can to help Donald J. Trump get reelected.”
It’s possible that Jones will change his party orientation to Republican, although the Lithonia-area district he represents is heavily Democratic.
Prosecutors Want Stricter Bond Restrictions for Kyle Rittenhouse for Hanging Out with Proud Boys
The Proud Boys are proud of their boy, Kyle.
Kyle Rittenhouse, out on bond after shooting three ANTIFA rioters and killing two at a Kenosha, Wisc. riot scene last summer, is under scrutiny from authorities for merely having a good time at a bar.
Rittenhouse was at a bar with his mother wearing a “Free as F*ck” t-shirt when he was approached by some local Proud Boys. They took pictures together doing the “OK” symbol, which has become controversial due to left-wing hysteria.

As a result, prosecutors in Kenosha County are hoping to modify Rittenhouse’s bond to prevent the young man from enjoying his freedom. They reportedly want to prevent him from being “serenaded” by Proud Boys and other adoring followers.
“Within a few minutes of entering the bar, the defendant was loudly serenaded by 5 of the adult males with the song “Proud of Your Boy,” which is an obscure song written for the 1992 film, “Aladdin.” The violent white supremacist group called the “Proud Boys” was named after this song, which is sung by its members as an anthem and for self-identification,” the Kenosha County District Attorney’s office wrote.
“The defendant later posed for several photographs with these adults in the bar. In each of these photographs, the defendant and the other adults flashed the “OK” sign used by white supremacists,” they added.
The surreal letter from the DA’s office that looks like it was written by an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) operative can be seen here:

The letter from the DA’s house shows how the government is painting ordinary conservatives and Trump supporters by as white supremacists and terrorist threats based on left-wing propaganda.
Big League Politics reported on how Rittenhouse posted bond in November after spending months confined in jail for exercising his right to self-defense against ANTIFA terrorists:
Illinois teenager Kyle Rittenhouse has been freed from the Kenosha County Jail in Wisconsin, after posting a $2 million bond set by a judge on Friday.
Rittenhouse is charged with two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot in August. He’s also charged with a count of being a minor in possession of a firearm.
Rittenhouse was assailed by Rosenbaum while present at the scene of the riots, carrying an AR-style rifle and planning to prevent looting and rioting in Kenosha. Rittenhouse shot and killed Rosenbaum, arguing that he acted in self-defense when Rosenbaum attempted to grab his rifle. Rittenhouse would go on to shoot two men- one of them armed with a gun- who chased him as he tried to flee the scene of the riots.
Rittenhouse had been extradited from Illinois to Wisconsin to face charges. He posted bond through his attorney, Mark Richards, on Friday at 2PM.
Rittenhouse will be remembered as an American hero whether or not he is acquitted in the courts or ultimately made a martyr by a biased and unjust system. The Proud Boys are right to be proud of their boy Kyle in this instance.
