Former CIA officer and counterterrorism expert Kevin Shipp gives his views on government corruption, as well as options to regain Constitutional rights at Freedom Under Fire, an educational lecture organized by the Coweta and Fayette Republican parties. 


The Republican Party of Fayette and Coweta Counties hosted an educational lecture — Freedom under Fire — at the Central Educational Center in Newnan this past weekend, which featured Kevin Shipp, a former CIA officer and counter terrorism expert.

Chairman of the Coweta Republican Party Brant Frost V said the purpose of the event was “empowering people with information to get them the truth they need to know.”

Shipp shared his findings on what he says were secret abuses by the White House Administration, CIA, FBI, IRS, and NSA, and discussed possible solutions for the public to regain their Constitutional rights.

Straw polls for governor were also conducted by the attendees. Nathan Deal and David Pennington tied, each receiving 41 percent of the votes. John Barge received 11 percent, and seven percent were undecided.
