    Daphne Police Department officers were refused service by employees at their local Five Guys franchise, according to a report by WKRG. Citing a “credible source,” WKRG on Tuesday night reported that a group of five officers had attempted to eat at the Daphne Five Guys after court. “A group of employees turned their backs on the officers. One of the employees could be overheard saying, ‘I’m not serving them.’ The source said the officers walked out and went to another restaurant,” the TV station outlined. Daphne Mayor Dane Haygood on social media wrote that he was aware of the WKRG...

    ----snip---- It is time for Alabama to have two senators, not one, who represent the core conservative values that our citizens hold dear. It is time for Alabama to have two senators, not one, who support the Trump agenda and the conservative movement our president promotes. It is time for Alabama to have two senators, not one, who believe the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are the bedrock foundation of our nation and not just an antiquated and outdated list of suggestions. I stand ready to give Alabamians the faithful service and honest representation that Doug Jones has failed...

    A thief in Alabama expressed remorse after desecrating an Independence Day tribute to military heroes on church property. The culprit left a note after returning several of the 100 American flags that had names of veterans on them on the grounds of the First Baptist Church in Grand Bay. "I'm sorry for taking the flags," the person wrote on a note with the returned flags. "I did not mean any disrespect ... I was drinking and had a dumb idea ... I had no idea that there were names of fallen heroes."

    Ann Coulter went on an early Sunday morning Twitter tear, calling President Donald Trump “the most disloyal actual retard that has ever set foot in the Oval Office.” The far-right media pundit and former Trump defender was triggered by the president’s Friday tweet in which he called for Alabama voters to “not trust Jeff Sessions” and instead put their support behind Sessions’ Republican Senate seat challenger, football coach Tommy Tuberville. “3 years ago, after Jeff Sessions recused himself, the Fraudulent Mueller Scam began. Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions. He let our Country down. That’s why I endorsed Coach Tommy...

    “If Trump is nominated, the GOP must keep him out of the White House,” Tommy Tuberville’s senior adviser Rob Jesmer Tweeted, in a series of anti-Trump, pro-amnesty Tweets going back years. An investigation into Tuberville staff shows hostility towards Trump’s agenda and trump’s supporters. Jesmer is Tuberville’s media adviser and is rumored to be in contention for the coveted chief of staff position in an Tuberville administration. Jesmer will be calling the shots on immigration. What’s interest about this Tweet is that Jesmer added the picture himself. Often times an image will auto-populate when you post a URL link. Jesmer...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Tuesday that taking comfort in news of declining coronavirus death rates is a”false narrative” encouraging “complacency.” Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci downplayed the apparent low death rate of the novel coronavirus pandemic in a (internet streamed) press conference with Democrat Alabama Senator Doug Jones on Tuesday. He also emphasized that there was still a “window of opportunity” for the state to respond proactively to the outbreak. “You’re not there yet, so you have an opportunity, a window to get your arms around this and to prevent it...

    If Abraham Lincoln and Christopher Columbus no longer pass woke muster in Boston, then it’s time for the Kennedys to go. And everything with their names plastered on it — the JFK Library and JFK federal building, his statue at the State House, the Kennedy School of Government across the river, the Rose Kennedy Greenway, the Edward M. Kennedy Whatever They Call It, etc. Everything must go! Profiles in Courage? The Kennedys were more like Profiles in Caucasity, as that woke Harvard gal said this week before she too got canceled. Let’s start with President Kennedy. Just for starters, he...

    On Tuesday’s edition of “First Take” on ESPN, Wallace identified mechanic David Cropps as the team member who found the rope. “When my crew guy – who happens to be African-American - saw that he did his research first,” Wallace, a native of Mobile, explained on “First Take.” “I was very proud of that. David Cropps, a guy I’ll stand by in any trenches on any day, walked up and down the garages to make sure he wasn’t overreacting. He saw that other garage pulls were basically just a solid piece of rope, no knots in them, and we have...

    “On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed. The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could...

    Polling results released by an Alabama-based, nationally respected data firm on Monday show that both former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville and former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions would enter a general election battle against U.S. Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) with a sizable lead. Cygnal, recognized as the nation’s most accurate polling firm during the 2018 midterm cycle, conducted a survey of 530 likely Alabama general election voters from June 13-16. The survey had a margin of error of ±4.26%, utilizing a probabilistic mixed-mode method that included Interactive Voice Responses (IVR) from landline phones as well as SMS...

    TALLADEGA, Ala. — Less than two weeks after NASCAR announced it would ban the Confederate flag from its races and properties, a Confederate flag was seen flying above the Talladega Superspeedway ahead of a race on Sunday. The flag and an accompanying message, “Defund NASCAR,” were not affiliated with the organization. It’s unclear who sponsored the aerial advertising.

    One of the men at the center of the recent Supreme Court decision that held that firing people based on sexual orientation is a form of sex discrimination, was not ousted because he was gay, his former employer says. In a 6-3 decision that was released Monday in Bostock v. Clayton County — which was consolidated along with two other cases involving firings of homosexual and trans-identified employees — the high court ruled that Title VII, the civil rights provision within the 1964 Civil Rights Act that pertains specifically to employment, extends nondiscrimination protections to sexual orientation and transgender status....

    An incoming freshman at the University of Alabama is standing up for black-owned businesses damaged during civil unrest that stemmed from George Floyd’s death last month in Minneapolis. CJ Pearson, 17, is a native Georgian and longtime Bama football fan. He has announced that he will be studying political science in Tuscaloosa this fall. The same week that the Capstone announced its plan to reopen for on-campus instruction, Pearson on Thursday hand-delivered a $10,000 check to Wilbourn Sisters Designs. This, according to WSB-TV, was one of several black-owned local businesses seriously damaged as protesting devolved into criminal activity in Atlanta...

    LOWNDES COUNTY, Ala. -- The area known as Alabama's Black Belt has been hit hard by the coronavirus. The mostly rural region, which includes more than a dozen counties and is famous for pivotal Civil Rights-era events like the march from Selma and the Montgomery bus boycott, has some of the highest infection rates in the state. It also has high unemployment, low income levels - several counties have poverty rates north of 30 percent, according to a 2019 University of Alabama analysis - and limited access to grocery stores, sewage service and health care. Some hard-hit areas, like Lowndes...

    MOBILE, Alabama — Buzz is swirling that President Donald Trump will return to the same venue where he made his first splash in the political world nearly five years ago with a political rally, but this time supporting the political opponent of his first major ally, former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Multiple sources have told Breitbart News on background Trump will appear in Mobile, AL’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium to campaign on behalf of former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville, Sessions’ opponent in a July 14 primary runoff election. The winner of that contest will face incumbent U.S. Sen....

    A church that served the local community for years found its lease canceled this week. Had the pastor been accused of sexually assaulting someone or embezzling funds? Had the church preached a message of true hate or intolerance? No, the city revoked the church’s lease because the pastor had committed the heinous sin of “liking” tweets exposing Democrat hypocrisy. Among others, he had “liked” a tweet daring to criticize His Holiness Barack Obama for golfing when his wife, Michelle, urged members of the black community to stay home to stop the spread of the coronavirus (yes, this happened). There was...

    Most people don't scroll through their Twitter feed thinking a few simple clicks will change their life. But for Birmingham Pastor Chris Hodges, who's been a friend of mine for years, a handful of "likes" were all it took to make the biggest church in Alabama homeless. You can lose your lease a lot of ways -- if you fall behind on payments, abuse the property, or follow conservative media. Like most people Chris Hodges probably didn't think a quick tap of support for posts on Donald Trump or China's role in the coronavirus would amount to much of anything....

    It has been suggested that we should rename as many as 10 of our Legendary Military Bases, such as Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas, Fort Benning in Georgia, etc. These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom. The United States of America trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars. Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations. Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will...

    One of the few sports to run in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, NASCAR is now the largest to allow fans to return as more states relax their business shutdowns. NASCAR decided a limited number of fans can attend races this month at Homestead-Miami Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. NASCAR says all fans will be screened before entering, required to wear face coverings, mandated to social distance at six feet, and will not have access to the infield, among other revised operational protocols. NASCAR will allow up to 1,000 Florida service members, representing the Homestead Air Reserve Base and U.S....

    a GoFundMe account set up by Candace Owens, titled “Mob rule has no place in America,” which was subsequently shut down after raising $205,000 in a few hours. The conservative activist launched a GoFundMe campaign in support of Michael Dykes, a Birmingham bar owner who called George Floyd a “thug” — Floyd served at least four stints in prison, including a 5-year sentence for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. The media narrative is that at the age of 46, he was turning his life around, though a toxicology report said he had fentanyl in his system at the time...
