    It will be another four and a half months before Republican voters in Alabama select a GOP nominee to face incumbent Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in the Nov. 3, 2020 general election. However, there could be a familiar face among the list of candidates on the ballot. In recent days, there has been rampant speculation that former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions could enter the contest for his old seat. Sessions held the seat currently occupied by Jones from 1997 through 2017. He gave up that seat to serve in the Trump administration until his unceremonious exit in late 2018....

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WKRG)– A man dying of Stage Four Lung Cancer is granted his dying wish, thanks to the staff at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Thomas Roberts had only days to live but felt compelled to be baptized. There was one small problem: He wanted to be submerged in water but could only be removed from his oxygen tubes for a short amount of time. The doctors and nurses performed a “miracle” and made it happen. Here is a portion of the article written by Holly Gainer, in UAB’s Public Relations office. “Roberts, who was a patient on...
  • Dem Senator: Ukraine Whistleblower Complaint is ‘Hearsay’

    09/30/2019 9:14:29 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 51 replies ^ | SEPTEMBER 30, 2019
    Sen. Doug Jones (D., Ala.) said much of the Ukraine whistleblower complaint depended on "hearsay" and that Congress cannot impeach officials based on hearsay during a Sunday interview on MSNBC's Kasie DC. Jones broke with House Democrats when he criticized the whistleblower allegation that launched the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The first-term senator said he was skeptical of using secondhand complaints as the basis for removing a sitting president from office, echoing the sentiments of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.). "A lot of that allegation, a lot of the whistleblower complaint is in fact hearsay. It is what...

    Alabama is No. 1 in the Associated Press college football poll for the first time this season, replacing preseason No. 1 Clemson after the Tigers had a close call. Alabama received 29 of 61 first-place votes Sunday from the media panel as the Tigers' one-point victory at North Carolina gave the AP Top 25 presented by Regions Bank the first shake-up at the top this season. Clemson slipped to No. 2 and received 18 first-place votes. The last time a No. 1 team won but dropped was Ohio State on Nov. 7, 2015, after the Buckeyes beat Minnesota 28-14 at...
  • Mo Brooks: ‘The Long-Term Strategy of the Democratic Party Is to Eliminate the Second Amendment’

    Thursday during an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) argued that although House Democrats will likely pass a number of gun control bills that will not make it through the U.S. Senate, the long-term strategy was to get at the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms. Brooks told “The Jeff Poor Show” it was an incremental process Democrats are using to erode support for the right to bear arms. “The Democrats, Nancy Pelosi — they believe they have a winning issue here,” Brooks said. “So they’re going to force vote after vote om ultimately repealing the...

    “If the president were to veto it, we would sustain his veto,” Brooks said. “I would certainly hope that the president will veto because it’s really bad for America. Whether he will or not, I can’t say.” “I applaud President Trump when he does those things that helps secure our border, that helps protect the Rule of Law. This legislation does not help secure our border, it makes things worse, in my judgement.”

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) took to the floor of the House of Representatives to blast his Democratic party colleagues over their lack of interest in protecting Americans from dangerous illegal aliens. In an epic speech, Brooks told the story of a young girl and her grandmother, killed by illegal MS-13 animals last summer in his hometown of Huntsville: In July, 2018, in my hometown of Huntsville, Alabama, two drug cartel-related illegal aliens took Oralia Mendoza and her 13-year-old granddaughter Mariah Lopez from their home in the dark of night. Oralia was stabbed to death, while her teenaged granddaughter Mariah was...

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) is urging Congress to build President Trump’s proposed border wall, saying that a 7,000-strong migrant caravan is “hell-bent” on “assaulting our national sovereignty.” Brooks has cosponsored House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s Build the Wall, Enforce the Law Act of 2018 — which fully funds a border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border — and Rep. Bradley Byrne’s (R-AL) 50 Votes for the Wall Act, which Brooks says “neuters open borders Democrat Senator obstructionism by allowing a majority vote to pass legislation.” The populist-nationalist lawmaker says a border wall along the southern border is “now more than ever”...

    Brooks continued, “A lot of us don’t have security clearances. It doesn’t seem to be a problem in life. The reason they keep people on security clearance after their time in office is so they can offer advice. And I think, frankly, it’s a little of a vanity thing, that people get to say, I still have my security clearance. And so, when it’s taken away — but John Brennan wasn’t giving the Trump administration advice anyway. And so the idea they have to live without security clearance after they’ve been out of office doesn’t strike me as one of...

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said he will be voting in the Alabama special election next month for Judge Roy Moore, the man who beat him in the primary, because it is important to have conservatives in Congress. “America faces huge challenges that are vastly more important than contested sexual allegations from four decades ago,” Brooks told in a text message. “Who will vote in America’s best interests on Supreme Court justices, deficit and debt, economic growth, border security, national defense, and the like? Socialist Democrat Doug Jones will vote wrong. Roy Moore will vote right. Hence, I will vote...

    Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks is standing by GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, arguing that the Senate needs Moore’s vote. “There are major issues facing the United States of America — deficit and debt that can lead to insolvency and bankruptcy, funding for national security, border security, abortion, appointment of Supreme Court justices. Doug Jones will vote wrong on each of those issues,” Brooks said Monday night after House votes. “Roy Moore will vote right; that’s why I’m voting for Roy Moore.”

"I believe we ought to terminate all federal government support of the NFL," Brooks told Breitbart News. "That would include the termination of any and all advertising that is done on behalf of the federal government — military and nonmilitary — to the extent we do any." "The same thing with any other professional sport that insults our country and our flag and our anthem as the NFL has...

    [snip] Brooks expressed his sadness over Trump’s decision, claiming he was “baffled and disappointed Mitch McConnell and the Swamp somehow misled the President into endorsing Luther Strange.” Brooks has previously registered his opposition to McConnell, calling for his ouster last month after the failure of Republican efforts to pass health care legislation. And so, in light of Trump’s tweet knocking the Majority Leader, Brooks has made one last-ditch effort to win back his affection, telling the president that Strange and McConnell don’t “support [his] agenda,” and asking Trump to reconsider his endorsement: Mo Brooks @mobrooksforsen I agree completely, Mr. President....

    About a week out from the all-important GOP primary for the U.S. Senate seat in Alabama vacated by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Washington, DC, establishment candidate is slumping as two pro-President Trump conservatives surge. A new poll provided exclusively to Breitbart News by JMC Analytics, a Louisiana-based polling firm, shows Luther Strange tapering off in the polls as Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) surges behind him and former state Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore remains steady in first place. The poll shows Moore at 30 percent, Strange at 22 percent, and Brooks at 19 percent. Others combine for a total...

Luther Strange (R-AL), including Alabama State Representative Ed Henry, who was the chairman of Trump’s campaign in that state. “I worked tirelessly to get Donald Trump elected because I saw the need to bust up the status quo in D.C. For that same reason I am supporting Mo Brooks,” Henry told Breitbart News. “He is a man of character, willing to sacrifice his own political capitol to do what is best for America,” Henry said....

    Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said Friday that it's time for new leadership in the Senate after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., failed to bring a healthcare reform bill over the finish line. Brooks said on CNN that he hopes the Senate doesn't stop trying to pass a bill, but said if the Senate is done, the GOP should start looking for a new leader. "If they're gonna quit, well then, by golly, maybe they ought to start at the top with Mitch McConnell leaving his position, and letting somebody new, somebody bold, somebody conservative take the reins so that they...
