District map The map below shows this district's current boundaries, not those enacted as part of the 2020 redistricting cycle.
Redistricting 2020-2021 See also: Redistricting in Georgia after the 2020 census On December 30, 2021, Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed Georgia's congressional map into law. The Georgia General Assembly previously approved the map with the state Senate voting 32-21 in favor of the map on November 19, 2021, followed by the state House voting 96-68 on November 22, 2021.
  This map takes effect for Georgia's 2022 congressional th 14. How th 14 redistricting in Georgia work? In Georgia, both congressional and state legislative district lines are drawn by the state legislature. A simple majority in each chamber is required to approve redistricting plans, which are subject to veto by the governor.  The Georgia Constitution requires that state legislative districts be contiguous. There are no similar requirements for congressional districts.
  2010-2011 See also: Redistricting in Georgia after the 2010 census In 2011, the Georgia State Legislature re-drew the congressional districts based on updated population information from the 2010 census. On August 22, 2011, Georgia's Republican leadership released their proposed Congressional redistricting map. Due to population growth, Georgia gained a 14th Congressional district following the 2010 census.
The new district was created th 14 the northwestern part of the state.  Rep. Tom Graves ( R) was drawn into the new district, which left 9th District th 14 open in 2012. After redistricting, the 9th District leaned Republican.  In addition, the plan displaced Rep. John Barrow ( D), but Barrow (who had been displaced before) moved into the district in order to remain in the 12th District.
 Rep. Sanford Bishop's ( D) district will become a majority-minority district. Also, Rep. Phil Gingrey's ( R) 11th District picked up part of Atlanta. Overall, the plan was expected to bolster the Republican majority in the state's congressional delegation.  District analysis See also: The Cook Political Report's Partisan Voter Index See also: FiveThirtyEight's elasticity scores The 2017 Cook Partisan Voter Index for this district was R+27, meaning that in the previous two presidential elections, this district's results were 27 percentage points more Republican than the national average.
This made Georgia's 14th Congressional District the 10th most Republican nationally.  FiveThirtyEight's September 2018 elasticity score for states and congressional districts measured "how sensitive it is to changes in the national political environment." This district's elasticity score was 0.90. This means that for every 1 point the national political mood moved toward a party, the district was expected to move 0.90 points toward that party.

none "The Th 14 Inferno makes your enemies feel like marshmallows trying to mount an attack on a bonfire.
Now upgraded even further, it unleashes a poisonous cloud upon destruction that hurts and slows down nearby attackers." Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Summary • The Giga Inferno is a defensive weapon fitted onto the level 14 Town Hall. • The Giga Inferno deals very high damage per second to multiple targets at once.
It only emerges when the Town Hall is damaged, or when 51% of the base is destroyed. • When the Town Hall is destroyed, it unleashes a poison bomb that works just like the Poison Spell; it deals damage and slows down movement and attack speed to all units around the Town Hall. • At first, it appears that the poison bomb seems to completely replaced the freezing explosion effect, but it is more like a direct upgrade to it.
• Most statistics of the level 5 Giga Inferno from Town Hall 13 carry over to Town Hall 14's level 1 Giga Inferno: namely its DPS, range, number of targets, damage when destroyed. The only th 14 that changes is that its explosive bomb creates a toxic poison cloud instead of partially freezing the surrounding area. • Before the Giga Inferno emerges in a battle, the Town Hall is not treated as a defensive building, and defense-targeting troops like Giants will not attack it while other defenses remain.
Once the Giga Inferno is active, these troops will be able to target the Town Hall alongside the existing defenses. • The levels of the Giga Inferno are denoted by the number of stars that can be seen when tapping on a Town Hall 14. Roman numerals on the front of the Town Hall also show the level of the Giga Inferno inside. This is more important than the denotation of the Giga Tesla as the visual upgrade difference of the Town Hall and the weapon itself is not as dramatic.
Strategy and Tips • The Giga Inferno can be extremely dangerous; it can be compared to a multi-targeting Inferno Tower, except dealing much more damage than one. You can consider using th 14 Freeze Spell on the Giga Inferno to stop it from wreaking havoc on your troops. • Sometimes it is bad (for the defending side) for the Giga Inferno to be triggered as then defense-targeting troops (e.g. Giants, Balloons, Golems) can then attack the Town Hall.
It is good to have a single-target Inferno Tower nearby to counteract this. • It can be useful to use a single Earthquake Spell to activate the Giga Inferno so that defense-targeting troops such as Balloons can path towards and target th 14 Town Hall. This is often best done when these troops are close to the Town Hall so that the Giga Inferno gets less time to fire upon these troops.
• Like the multi-target Inferno Tower and Giga Tesla, the Giga Inferno will not be able to use its full damage output if attacking only a single target.
This means Queen Charges attacking the Town Hall (if not protected by any other defenses) will usually be able to take it down as long as the Healers stay out of range. However, Giga Infernos (especially at higher levels) can do more damage than the Healers can heal by themselves, so a Rage Spell may be required to boost their output. • When going against Giga Inferno, be prepared for its explosion if you destroy it, as it can easily wipe out many smaller troops, including Bowlers and Balloons, and also significantly hurt your larger troops and heroes.
The Grand Warden's Eternal Tome ability can be useful to prevent the explosion damage from hurting or killing your troops, but will not prevent the Poison effect from slowing down your troops. • Even if the Tome protects your troops from the blast, the resulting poison will outlast the ability and so do heavy damage to them. As such, it is advisable to destroy the Town Hall early into the attack with a hero or a siege machine so that the majority of your army never has to engage it.
• A Freeze Spell does not mitigate the Giga Inferno's death explosion and poison effect. • Miners will be affected by the poison, even if they are below ground. • The explosion radius, while significant, is smaller than the range of the Giga Inferno.
Long-ranged units like the Archer Queen can stay clear of the blast if they do not move towards the Town Hall before it explodes. • If the Town Hall is isolated with a large empty space around it, as is usually the case in anti 2-star bases, it can often be useful to allow a lone Wall Wrecker or Battle Blimp (loaded with high damage Clan Castle troops, such as P.E.K.K.As, Valkyries or Balloons) to target the Town Hall while the rest of the army can be used to clear the buildings around the sides.
If you manage to take down th 14 Town Hall with the Siege Machine, the explosion will likely only affect any Clan Castle troops you used to take it down, and you can use the Grand Warden's ability elsewhere (against the Eagle Artillery, for example).
Upgrade Differences • After each upgrade, the roman numerals on the side of the Town Hall change accordingly to the Giga Inferno's level. • The Giga Inferno changes when upgraded. • At level 1, a floating ball of energy is summon by a circular pillar with cracks on top of it. • At level 5, the ball of energy becomes bigger. • The base of the Town Hall changes with each upgrade. • At level 2, the second step of the corners of the top is gilded. • At level 3, the pool around the Town Hall is slightly th 14, the sliding cover for the Giga Inferno is completely golden.
• At level 4, the pattern next to the door and on the corners are replaced to be more intricate, a purple flower is added near the top corner. • At level 5, the pool now fully surrounds the Town Hall acting like a moat, the flowers on top of the Town Hall are bigger.
History • The Giga Inferno (at TH14) was introduced in April 12, 2021 "Town Hall 14" update. • The April 29, 2021, balance changes made the Poison DPS increase more quickly. The Town Hall 14 Poison Bomb Trivia • According to Darian in Supercell's Town Hall 14 Dev Update video, the design of the Town Hall, as well as the the buildings with new upgrade levels, and new buildings, are inspired by indigenous Mesoamerican architecture. • As the Giga Inferno for Town Hall 14 is mainly just a ball of energy summoned on top of the Town Hall, it does not act like a bomb on its own like the previous two versions of Town Hall weapons.
Instead, it falls into a container and reacts with the content to create an explosive reaction; The container progressively getting brighter and a skull appears, then it explodes and leaves a cloud of poison behind. • As Inferno Towers are powered by Dark Th 14 and Poison Spells are brewed from Dark Elixir, the container might have the ingredients of a Poison Spell, activated by Dark Elixir at a high energy state to create both an explosion and a cloud of poison.
• Town Hall 14's Giga Inferno upgrade costs are lower than those of Town Hall 13, probably due to the fact that only the Poison Bomb is upgraded, and these upgrades are less significant than the Town Hall 13 upgrades.

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the th 14 thereof.
But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability. Lawmakers who may be targeted by Bush's effort to apply the amendment in Congress include Republican Reps. Mo Brooks of Alabama and Louis Gohmert of Texas took part in the Washington rally the sparked the storming of the Capitol. "Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass," Brooks told Trump's supporters on Wednesday, before they tried to disrupt the American government.
Republican Sens. Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas have also been discussed as 14th Amendment violators. They're the senators who objected to counting electoral votes, along with many more colleagues in the House, and Hawley raised a fist to the rioters in solidarity before they stormed the Capitol.
Magliocca said the 14th Amendment had excluded Confederates from running for office after the Civil War. That is, until Congress passed a sort of blanket amnesty removing that penalty from most Southern men as part of an effort at reconciliation. (There was, bizarrely, a symbolic effort that granted the same courtesy to Robert E.
Lee and Jefferson Davis in the 1970s.) "It's something more than a censure, which just says, "you were bad and don't do it again, right? But it's something less than an impeachment because it doesn't require an impeachment trial and the two thirds vote in the Senate and so on.
So it's a way th 14 thinking about this in a more of a compromise kind of fashion," Magliocca said, although he added it would previously would have been impossible to imagine using a provision written to keep insurrectionists out of government against a sitting US President who is already in charge of the government.

Constitution, ratified in 1868, granted citizenship to all persons born or naturalized in the United States—including former enslaved people—and guaranteed all citizens “equal protection of the laws.” One of three amendments passed during the Reconstruction era to abolish slavery and establish civil and legal rights for Black Americans, it would become the basis for many landmark Supreme Court decisions over the years.
In its later sections, the 14th Amendment authorized the federal government to punish states that violated or abridged their citizens’ right to vote by proportionally reducing the states’ representation in Congress, and mandated that anyone who “engaged in insurrection” against the United States could not hold civil, military or elected office (without the approval of two-thirds of the House and Senate).
It also upheld the national debt, but exempted federal and state governments from paying any debts incurred by the former Confederate states. Reconstruction Abraham Lincoln’s assassination in April 1865 left his successor, President Andrew Johnson, to preside over the complex process of incorporating former Confederate states back into th 14 Union after the Civil War and establishing former enslaved people as free and equal citizens.
Johnson, a Democrat (and former slaveholder) from Tennessee, supported emancipation, but he differed greatly from the Republican-controlled Congress in his view of how Reconstruction should proceed. Johnson showed relative leniency toward the former Confederate states as they were reintroduced into the Union.
But many northerners were outraged when the newly elected southern state legislatures—largely dominated by former Confederate leaders—enacted black codes, which were repressive laws that strictly regulated the behavior of Black citizens and effectively kept them dependent on white planters. READ MORE: How the Black Codes Limited African American Progress After the Civil War Civil Rights Act of 1866 In creating the Civil Rights Act of 1866, Congress was using the authority given it to enforce the newly ratified 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, and protect the rights of Black Americans.
Johnson vetoed the th 14, and though Congress successfully overrode his veto and made it into law in April 1866—the first time in history that Congress overrode a presidential veto of a major bill—even some Republicans thought another amendment was necessary to provide firm constitutional grounds for the new legislation.
Thaddeus Stevens In late April, Representative Thaddeus Stevens introduced a plan that combined several different legislative proposals (civil rights for Black people, how to apportion representatives in Congress, punitive measures against the former Confederate States of Th 14 and repudiation of Confederate war debt), into a single constitutional amendment. After the House and Senate both voted on the amendment by June 1866, it was submitted to the states for ratification. President Johnson made clear his opposition to the 14th Amendment as it made its way through the ratification process, but Congressional elections th 14 late 1866 gave Republicans veto-proof majorities in both the House and Senate.
Southern states also resisted, but Congress required them to ratify the 13th and 14th Amendments as a condition of regaining representation in Congress, and the ongoing presence of the Union Army in the former Confederate states ensured their compliance. On July 9, 1868, Louisiana and South Carolina voted to ratify the 14th Amendment, making up the necessary three-fourths majority.
14th Amendment – Section One The opening sentence of Section One of the 14th Amendment defined U.S. citizenship: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” This clearly repudiated the Supreme Court’s notorious 1857 Dred Scott decision, in which Chief Justice Roger Taney wrote that a Black man, even if born free, could not claim rights of citizenship under the federal constitution.
Th 14 One's next clause was: “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States.” This greatly expanded the civil and legal rights of all American citizens by protecting them from infringement by the states as well as by the federal government. Inside Theodore Roosevelt's Th 14 Age Upbringing The third clause, “nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law,” expanded the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment to apply to the states as well as the federal government.
Over time, the Supreme Court has interpreted this clause to guarantee a wide array of rights against infringement by the states, including those enumerated in the Bill of Rights (freedom of speech, free exercise of religion, right to bear arms, etc.) th 14 well as the right to privacy and other fundamental rights not mentioned elsewhere in the Constitution.
Finally, the “equal protection clause” (“nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws”) was clearly intended to stop state governments from discriminating against Black Americans, and over the years would play a key role in many landmark civil rights cases.
14th Amendment – Section Two Section Two of the 14th Amendment repealed the three-fifths clause (Article I, Section 2, Clause 3) of the original Constitution, which counted enslaved people as three-fifths of a person for the purpose of apportioning congressional representation.
With slavery outlawed by the 13th Amendment, this clarified that all residents, regardless of race, should be counted as one whole person.
This section also guaranteed that all male citizens over age 21, no matter their race, had a right to vote. Southern states continued to deny Black men the right to vote using a collection of state and local statutes during the Jim Crow era.
Subsequent amendments to the Constitution granted women the right to vote and lowered the legal voting age to 18. 14th Amendment – Section Three Section Three of the amendment, gave Congress the authority to bar public officials, who took an oath of allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, from holding office if they "engaged in insurrection or rebellion" against the Constitution.
The intent was to prevent the president from allowing former leaders of the Confederacy to regain power within the U.S.
government after securing a presidential pardon. It states that a two-thirds majority vote in Congress is required to allow public officials who had engaged in rebellion to regain the rights of American citizenship and hold government or military office. It states that: "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any th 14, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Th 14, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof." 14th Amendment — Section Four Section Four of the 14th Amendment prohibited payment of any debt owed to the defunct Confederate States of America.
It also banned any payments to former enslavers as compensation for the loss of human "property" (enslaved people).
14th Amendment — Section Five The fifth and final section of the 14th Amendment (“Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article”) echoed a similar enforcement clause in the 13th Amendment.
In giving Congress power to pass laws to safeguard the sweeping provisions of Section One, in particular, the 14th Amendment effectively altered the balance of power between the federal th 14 state governments in the United States. Nearly a century later, Congress used this authority to pass landmark civil rights legislation, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Impact of the 14th Amendment In its early decisions involving the 14th Amendment, the Supreme Court often limited the application of its protections on a state and local level. But beginning in the 1920s, the Supreme Court increasingly applied the protections of the 14th Amendment on the state and local level. Ruling on appeal in the 1925 case Gitlow v. New York, the Court stated that the due process clause of the 14th Amendment protected the First Amendment rights of freedom of speech from infringement by the state as well as the federal government.
And in its famous 1954 ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court th 14 the “separate but equal” doctrine established in Plessy v. Ferguson, ruling that segregated public schools did in fact violate the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment.
In other landmark rulings, the Supreme Court has cited the 14th Amendment in cases involving the use of contraception (1965’s Griswold v. Connecticut), interracial marriage (1967’s Loving v. Virginia), abortion (1973’s Roe v. Wade), a highly contested presidential election (2000’s Bush v. Gore), gun rights (2010’s McDonald v. Chicago) and same-sex marriage (2015’s Obergefell v. Hodges).
