    It’s Roy Moore, who’s already nationally famous for his willingness to defy federal courts. He got elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in 2001, had a monument to the Ten Commandments installed on the courthouse grounds, then was tossed off the bench for refusing to comply when a federal judge ordered him to remove the monument to prevent a violation of the Establishment Clause. He got reelected chief justice a few years ago and now he’s going to defy the federal judiciary on another hot-button “values” issue, namely, last week’s ruling that the part of the Alabama...

    Alabama's first openly gay state lawmaker threatened to "out" fellow elected officials engaged in extramarital affairs, especially those that champion family values and traditional marriage. State Rep. Patricia Todd's (D-Birmingham) ire came to a boil after several state officials reacted negatively to a recent federal ruling that declared Alabama's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard called the ruling "outrageous" and said that the will of 80% of Alabama citizens who voted in 2006 to define marriage as between a man and a woman has been overturned by the act of "a single unelected and unaccountable federal...

Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), who lost his primary earlier this year, was originally among the conservative Republicans who voted against the rule. Without the help of Democrats, Republicans could only lose 17 of their own to pass the rule, which sets up floor debate for the underlying "cromnibus" spending bill. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) intervened once there were 18 Republican defectors and not a single Democrat voting "yes."

    WASHINGTON Earlier this month, the midterm elections swept Senate Republicans back into power for the first time since 2006. Things had been looking pretty rosy for conservatives. It appeared to be the beginning of the reversal and another repudiation of President Barack Obamas policies. Sure, itd be a tough fight, but without a Democratic Senate to run interference, Obama would be put into the uncomfortable position of being forced to compromise. ...more...

    HUNTSVILLE, Alabama - The far-reaching scope of President Obama's immigration plan unveiled Thursday night exceeded the expectations of U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, who described the president as acting like a "petulant child." "I expected the president to consider each of the individual parts of what he proposed tonight but even I was surprised at how far the president went with everything - including the kitchen sink - in order to appease the open borders wing of the Democratic Party," said Brooks, R-Huntsville. "It's astonishing." In an interview with AL.com following the speech, Brooks said Obama's plan is "declaring open borders"...

    Senator Jeff Sessions calls Barack Obama an "Emperor of the United States" now that the president is going ahead with executive amnesty. "President Obama previously said he could not issue an executive amnesty because Im the President of the United States, Im not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed. Well, apparently we now have an Emperor of the United States," Sessions writes in a statement. "President Obamas immigration order would provide illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress has repeatedly rejected: Social Security numbers, photo IDs and work permitswhich will...

    There is an idiom that parents and employers likely put in practice when an important task has to be completed correctly; If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. President Obama certainly understands that sentiment with a slight variation; if the nation wants anything done at all, the President has to do it himself due to Republicans who have done nothing since January 2009. Sometime next week, after waiting patiently for Ted Cruz to order House Republicans to take up, and pass, the Senates bipartisan immigration reform, the President will take action on immigration reform. The...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) on Tuesday night said there is growing support in the Senate to deny President Barack Obama the funding he needs to executive his immigration plans, and said Obamas veto of that legislation would not be supported by the American people. Sessions said on the Mark Levin Show that Republicans will be looking to pass a government funding bill that prevents Obama from using any money to implement an amnesty program for millions of illegal immigrants. Sessions admitted that passage of this language might have to wait until next year, when Republicans take over the Senate.

    It looks like what we have here is a classic case of when keeping it real goes wrong. On Veterans Day, while most Americans were thanking members of the U.S. armed forces for their service and enjoying their communitys holiday festivities, Michael Schuette of Anniston, Alabama took to Facebook to explain that veterans are not American heroes. In fact, he believes they kill for profit, terrorize other countries, have never sacrificed for this country and do nothing for the American citizens.
