    Front-runner Donald Trump has surged to a nearly 40 percent lead in the latest Alabama Republican primary poll. From Aug. 29 – Sep. 1, Gravis Marketing asked 1,616 participants, “assuming you had to vote today, which 2016 GOP Candidate would you vote for?” Trump garnered an astonishing 38 percent, effectively matching the percentage received by the other candidates combined (38.8). In the last Alabama poll, Trump was supported by 30 percent of voters, and the real estate mogul’s eight point boost could possibly be attributed to his recent trip to Mobile (38.8). Ben Carson is the only other candidate to...

    Planned Parenthood Southeast on Friday filed a federal lawsuit over Gov. Robert Bentley’s effort to cut off Medicaid payments to the organization’s Alabama clinics. The organization said Bentley’s effort penalizes low-income women who seek contraceptive and preventative health care services at the clinics. The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Montgomery. It accuses Bentley of violating a federal law that they said requires Medicaid patients to have their choice of provider to receive family planning care. “We’re in court today because each and every patient, and her ability to make her own deeply personal and private health care decisions,...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business has filed a lawsuit against the state of Alabama after Governor Governor Robert Bentley made the decision to yank its taxpayer funding. The state cut Planned Parenthood’s funding after a national scandal involving the abortion company selling the body parts of aborted babies. This is the second Planned Parenthood lawsuit against a state for its decision to revoke taxpayer funding — following a suit against pro-life Louisiana Governro Bobby Jindal after his state canceled a state contract with Planned Parenthood. After Louisiana and other states yanked taxpayer funding, the Obama administration threatened them — but...

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump and his traveling road show descended upon Alabama for an unprecedented political rally at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. But Trump isn’t the only one in a crowded field of 17 Republican candidates seeking the party’s presidential nomination, making stops in Alabama months before the state’s primary Tuesday, March 1. Six are visiting the Yellowhammer State over a 10-day period this month, including Trump, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Texas Sen.

At about 3 a.m., an unfamiliar man broke into Wilma Williams home in the 31000 block of Cleburne County Road 49 in Alabama.  She ran to her pistol, but Craig Moore was able to take it from her and fire twice before she struggled free.

    A strange paradox is emerging in America: Overall violent-crime rates are down, but active shooter events — in which a person is trying to kill multiple people in a populated area — appear to be on the rise, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics. Meanwhile, a just-released study finds that although the United States has just about 5 percent of the world's population, the country has 31 percent of the world's mass shooters. The reasons for these numbers are complex, researchers say, but the data suggest that the availability of guns, and perhaps the American obsession with fame, may...

Cruz will serve as the keynote speaker at the annual Lincoln Reagan dinner, organized by the Tuscaloosa County Republican Party chapter. The event is sold out. Although the dinner boasts a long list of well-known keynote speakers, chapter president Jim Zeanah says this is first time a current presidential candidate has headlined the event. Zeanah says organizers booked Cruz before they realized just how popular he would be with Alabamians. "The Tea Party folks from all over the state...

Depending on who was counting, between 20,000 to 30,000 people (but fewer than the near 40,000 the Trump campaign had predicted) half-filled the University of Southern Alabama’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium just days after the venue had been selected. Why did Trump visit Alabama and not one of the earlier primary states? Because the state is part of the so-called “SEC primary” on March 1, in which five Deep South...

In the wake of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s cutting funding for the program by over $300 million, supporters have fallen back on familiar patterns of futile complaining. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden claimed that the funding shortfall would delay the restoration of American spaceflight capability by as much as two years. Bolden was mild compared to some of Commercial Crew’s supporters on the Internet.

Wallace, an avowed segregationist, was the last presidential candidate to win electoral votes as a third-party candidate. The threat of Trump doing so, propelled by a hardline immigration stance that many have condemned as racist, looms over the Republican Party now as it did over the Democratic Party then, even as the enthusiasm of his following, for once, fell far short of expectations. Wallace carried five...

    Since the release of the first incriminating Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress, a flurry of investigations have ensued. These videos at least show evidence indicating a strong likelihood of illegal activity, and at worst show despicable, callous disregard for the law, human life, and women. Here are the ongoing official investigations and government actions taken against Planned Parenthood. As of Wednesday, five states have made moves to defund Planned Parenthood, or end participation in the funneling of federal money to the unscrupulous organization. These states are New Hampshire, Utah, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Alabama. Thirteen states have...

    “If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn’t enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sane country would do that, right? Guess again. If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with US citizenship and guarantee a full access to all public and social services this society provides, and that’s a lot of services. Is it any wonder that two-thirds of the babies born at taxpayer expense in county-run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers?” No,...
  • Ted Cruz will win in places like Alabama

    When the junior senator from Texas announced that he was running for president last March, I used these pages to write that, "Ted Cruz could win in places like Alabama." That opinion was based upon Cruz's unapologetic advocacy and defense of the conservative principles of limited government, individual liberty, and free markets, and his sincere desire to see those principles form the foundation for a massive shift in American governance. Five months into his campaign, however, I feel that my earlier statement must be revised: Ted Cruz "will" win in places like Alabama, and perhaps in even less conservative states....

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who is campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination with a unique message of compassionate conservatism and cultural inclusion, will pick up a head-turning endorsement Monday in the Bible Belt. Alabama Gov. Robert J. Bentley (R) plans to endorse Kasich at a campaign event in Birmingham, according to a Kasich campaign official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to disclose the plans. With Bentley's backing, Kasich hopes to show that his message can appeal across the Republican spectrum — from the Midwest, where he has been a popular governor, to New England, where he is rising...

    Responding to shock videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, government officials in Louisiana, New Hampshire and Alabama (and, most recently, Arkansas) have moved to defund Planned Parenthood. Now the White House has entered the fray, warning these states that defunding may break the law. Through a network of affiliated clinics, Planned Parenthood provides health care services to millions of women across the country, especially low-income and young women who have few options for care.
  • Sessions Praises Trump: 'Exactly the Plan America Needs' on Immigration

    Alabama senator Jeff Sessions, a Republican, released a statement Sunday praising the immigration proposal from presidential candidate Donald Trump. ""This is exactly the plan America needs," said Sessions. "Not only would the plan outlined in this paper work, but more quickly than many realize. Most importantly, this plan reestablishes the principle that American's immigration laws should serve the interests of its own citizens. For too long, 'immigration reform' plans in Washington have served the special interests at the expense of working Americans." Sessions goes on to say that Trump's plan puts "working Americans foremost" and puts an emphasis on lifting...
