    Surge Summary: Major League Baseball has decided that recent election reform legislation in Georgia is so intolerable the organization will be moving the upcoming All-Star Game out of Atlanta (and they’ll be hurting that city’s business owners in the process). Meantime, MLB is cool with aggressively pursuing more extensive ties with the tyrannical, murderous Chinese government. Can you say “Disconnect”?

    Major League Lies

    Spring is here.  “Play Ball!” is ringing out in major league stadiums all over America.  Baseball is the all-American sport, and it draws fans from every demographic.

    But sadly, this season began on a sour note.  Major League Baseball decided to go to bat against efforts to restore the integrity of our elections.  Of course, that’s not how they described it.

    They claimed that the commonsense efforts of Georgia’s elected representatives to ensure that only legal votes are counted was an unacceptable throwback to the days of “Jim Crow” voter suppression.

    To show their “wokeness,” they moved the All-Star Game, which was scheduled to be played this summer in Atlanta, out of the state of Georgia.  And they did so based on a series of lies about the state’s new voter integrity law.

    There’s one main thing in Georgia’s new law that the left considers a mortal threat.  And that’s requiring an ID to vote.  Polling shows that Americans of all races overwhelmingly support voter ID laws, including nearly 70% of black voters.  By the way, this is the same Major League Baseball that requires an ID to pick up tickets.

    The MLB is desperately trying to do business in communist China.  The last time I checked, communist China doesn’t have free elections.  It regularly oppresses free speech, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly.

    It is engaged in a massive military buildup that not only threatens its neighbors, but also the future of the United States.  Moreover, the communist regime is engaged in genocide against the ethnic Uyghur minority, while it persecutes Christians and other faiths.

    But evidently Chairman Xi, who has ordered pastors to replace paintings of Jesus with pictures of himself, does not morally offend baseball’s bosses as much as the conservative legislators of Georgia.

    Not surprisingly, former President Donald Trump had something to say about the controversy.  In a statement, Trump declared, “Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”

    I think every Republican should be pointing out that the left is fighting tooth-and-nail against popular commonsense voter ID laws.  That’s not a party fighting for voting rights.  That’s a party scared to death it will be caught cheating!

    Biden vs. Georgia

    President Biden joined the left’s attack on Georgia, urging sports teams and businesses to boycott the Peach State.  Small businesses in Georgia, especially in Atlanta which is heavily Democrat, will lose tens of millions of dollars due to the loss of the All-Star game.  Many small businesses that survived the pandemic were counting on this event to help them get back on their feet.

    I would love to see a poll asking who Georgians blame for the economic hit they’re about to take.  Stacey Abrams, who is expected to make another run for governor next year, was quick to distance herself from the boycott efforts.  That’s very telling.

    The fact is Joe Biden can’t get his facts straight.  (Neither can corporate America.)  Biden got four Pinocchios from the Washington Post fact checker for one of his recent attacks on Georgia’s election integrity law.  The only reason he got four Pinocchios is because there isn’t a five Pinocchio rating.  Biden got the top prize for telling the biggest whopper!
