  In the News: House GOP Should Step up Action to ‘Weed out Corruption’ in Wake of FBI Trump Raid, Says Rep. Loudermilk
  Epoch Times:

The FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home is but another instance of government overreach, according to Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.).

The congressman said the Aug. 8 incident will galvanize Republicans in the House to take a tougher approach to investigate misconduct across the entire bureaucracy in the event the GOP flips the chamber later this year.

“This is our government run amok and without constraints, and we have to rein it in,” Loudermilk told The Epoch Times.

“This seems like it’s a huge overreach,” he said.

“It rings of weaponization for political purposes of law enforcement, which also brings in huge concerns that the Democrats are about to pass a bill that increases the IRS by 87,000 agents. Are they going to be weaponized to this level as well?”

  In the News: Georgia expert says slight drop in rise in consumer prices isn't a 'sustainable trend'
  Georgia Square:

The slight drop in the rise of consumer prices may only be a momentary bit of relief as federal policy could make matters worse, a Georgia nonprofit said.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers Increased 8.5% over the past 12 months. That is down from a 9.1% year-over-year increase in June.

"July's ever-so-slight decrease in the CPI is a sliver of welcome good news in an economic environment where there doesn't seem to be much good news," Erik Randolph, the Georgia Center for Opportunity's director of research, said in a statement. "July's price level — defined as the weighted average price across the board for goods and services purchased by households — ticked down 0.2% at an annualized rate. But we should pause before getting too enthusiastic about the news."

  In the News: College Football National Championship Game returning to Atlanta in 2025
  46 News:

Last year, metro Atlanta was scheduled to host Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game at Truist Park, home of the Atlanta Braves. However, in a move lauded by President Joe Biden, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred relocated the game to Denver in response to Georgia’s then-newly passed voting registration laws.

Last month, in a letter to Manfred, Georgia U.S. Reps. Buddy Carter and Barry Loudermilk called on MLB to “redress the harm caused to the state of Georgia by moving the 2021 MLB All-Star Game out of Georgia in reaction to baseless attacks on the state’s Election Integrity Act.”

The head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced plans to overhaul the agency Wednesday — while admitting to major “mistakes” in handling the pandemic.

“For 75 years, CDC and public health have been preparing for COVID-19, and in our big moment, our performance did not reliably meet expectations,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement.
