    Donald Trump again claimed that Sen. Ted Cruz may not be a U.S. citizen, The Guardian reports. Said Trump: “He’s an anchor baby. Ted Cruz is an anchor baby in Canada, but Canada doesn’t accept anchor babies, they just waited a long time.” He added: “I think that’s one of the reasons he’s a nervous wreck. Now they’re saying, I think, his career is over, right? How about this, he’s a citizen of Canada and he’s a senator from Texas?”

Jennifer Norsworthy, 40, had a history of blood clots. The family said one formed in her sleep last Friday. She was rushed to Madison Hospital where...

    Tenth Amendment Center ^ | 21 April 2016
    On Wednesday, an important House committee passed a bill that would abolish marriage licenses in Alabama and effectively nullify both sides of the contentious debate on same-sex marriage. If passed into law, the bill would essentially remove the state from the business of marriage. Sen. Greg Albritton (R-Bay Minette) introduced Senate Bill 143 (SB143) in February, where it was passed by a 23-3 vote last month.. The legislation would abolish all requirements to obtain a marriage license in Alabama. Instead, probate judges would simply record civil contracts of marriage between two individuals based on signed affidavits. All requirements to obtain...

For many months the hottest rumor in Alabama politics was that Governor Robert Bentley had engaged in a long-running extramarital affair with his senior political advisor Rebekah Mason, a married mother of three. At first the idea seemed so absurd I dismissed it as politically motivated nonsense. Now, here I was, driving toward an obscure Birmingham gas station to obtain...

The University of Alabama has lived up to the reputation by citing a student who was peacefully wearing an empty holster in a protest over the Universitity's no weapon policy. The campus police explicitly say that they are citing the student because "someone called it in". The campus policy does not prohibit holsters. The citation is for "Engaging in activities that threaten the safety of the campus community"...

The proposal, which will top the agenda during a meeting of the Rules panel at the RNCs annual spring meeting in Hollywood Beach, Fla., would fundamentally alter how the convention is conducted, further empowering the delegates to determine the course of the proceedings. It amounts to not just a changing of the rules but of the rulebook itself, with far-reaching implications, potentially impacting whether party...

    But now the deal is off. The Boston Globe is reporting that U.S.-based shoe manufacturer New Balance has come out hard against the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal. The odd thing, though, is that "the Boston company had gone quiet [on TPP] last year." Now, apparently, we know why: New Balance officials say one big reason is that they were told the Department of Defense would give them serious consideration for a contract to outfit recruits with athletic shoes. But no order has been placed, and New Balance officials say the Pentagon is intentionally delaying any purchase. New Balance is...

However, according to a recent report by Politico, China may be trying to enter the TPP defeating Obamas main argument for finalizing the deal.

Rand Paul (R-Ken.) on its cover and called him the "most interesting man in politics." Then Paul fizzled, and pundits said the "libertarian moment," if there ever was one, had ended. But Sen. Paul never ran as a libertarian. He ran as a libertarian-ish Republican, and he wasn't particularly convincing when he got to speak in debates. Americans were unimpressed.

Miller who had been working for Sen. Jeff Sessions at the time that Sessions led the conservative opposition to Obamatrade in the U.S. Senate said that Cruzs lobbying effort to fast track President Obamas Trans-Pacific Partnership was the difference maker that enabled fast track to pass. Like Sen. Cruz, Obama had been pushing for fast track to ensure the passage of TPP. Fast track lowers the 67 votes required to pass a...

    It wont help the economy, it wont stop China, and it will harm certain U.S. industries. President Obamas top 2016 legislative priority is passage of his legacy-building free-trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). But the American public is highly skeptical of TPP and its alleged beneficial economic effects. The public has it right. The problems with the deal are legion. Here are a few great reasons to oppose the deal: TPP does not include provisions prohibiting currency manipulation or enforceable penalties for doing so. Currency manipulation has cost the U.S. thousands of factories and millions of jobs over the last...

    Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz pledges to stand up for fair trade in a new state-wide Wisconsin ad hitting on international trade deals, a signature issue of frontrunner Donald Trumps campaign. Free trade is generally seen as a globalist policy in which restrictions on imports and exports are kept to an absolute minimum. Fair traders, on the other hand, argue that purely free trade can have negative consequences for the citizens of a particular country, especially when it comes to wages and employment opportunities for the lower and middle classes. They recommend that sovereign nations negotiate and implement trade deals...

The textbooks explain that when a country engages in free trade, several things happen: There are winners and losers. The losers need to retrain and/or lower their expectations. What the winners win is more than what the losers lose. What people lose when their wages are depressed by globalizing the labor market is more...

    Rebekah Caldwell Mason, the governor's political advisor whose name has been embroiled in controversy following the end of Robert Bentley's 50-year marriage last year, said allegations she exercises undue influence over government operations are incorrect. In a written statement, Mason said allegations by former Alabama Law Enforcement Agency chief Spencer Collier about her relationship with the governor are an example of "gender bias." "There is no way that man (Collier) would have said what he did...about another man. He only said what he said about my professional abilities because I am a woman. His comments were clear, demonstrated gender bias,"...

    PINSON, Ala. -- At 8 a.m. on a Saturday, the rumble of bulldozers and other earth-moving equipment was already audible in Ardell Turner's modest home in this rural hamlet north of Birmingham. Not far away, they once mined coal. Now state and local leaders are seeking prosperity through one of the nation's largest and priciest road projects. On planners' maps, the Northern Beltline will be a 52-mile, six-lane interstate that will effectively complete a loop around Birmingham, Alabama's largest city. More than a half-century after the Beltline's conception, work on a small segment began last year within a mile of...

    On Tuesday, the Alabama State Senate voted by 27-6 to pass a bill that would prohibit abortion facilities from being within 2,000 feet of a kindergarten-to-8th-grade public school. Under the proposed legislation, existing facilities near a school, such as the Alabama Womens Center for Reproductive Alternatives located near the Academy of Academics and Arts in Huntsville, would be unable to renew their licenses without relocating further away. My hope is that no more in the state would ever open that close to small children, bill sponsor Sen. Paul Sanford, a Republican, declared. Aside from the nature of abortion, Alabama Womens...

    Plans pushed by GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz under the immigration reform debate in 2013 that would have jumped the number of immigrants, including those from Muslim nations, were raised by the Trump campaign Tuesday. Under the Cruz plan, yearly legal immigration would have gone from 740,000 to 1,675,000. He said his idea was to actually help kill the bill not boost the numbers. "I was introducing a whole series of amendments, in part to demonstrate the hypocrisy of the Democrats. So, for example, the Democrats claimed they were supporting high-tech workers, so I introduced an amendment on that,...
  • Conservative Review column advocates "blacklist" to destroy those who support Trump (Vanity)

    Conservative Review has reached a new low for conservative publications by advocating a BLACKLIST to destroy those with a different opinion -- those who support Trump. Mark Levin is the editor-in-chief of Conservative Review. His response has simply been that he is not the columnist in question (Amanda Carpenter) so he is not responsible for the articles content. This is not good enough Mark Levin! As editor-in-chief you approved the publication of an enemies list to destroy those with a different opinion. Personal destruction is a tactic of the totalitarian left that shocks the conscience of those who value freedom...

    Trump had already previously named U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) as the chairman of his national security team, but on Monday, for the first time ever, he provided the Washington Post with a list of advisers that comprise the team. Trumps rivals and critics have argued repeatedly that his refusal, until now, to name his advisers meant he was not to be trusted with a presidents most important responsibility: Keeping the country safe. But Trumps list of national security advisers, preliminarily released in the Post interview with more on the way, comes on a day he has held meetings with...

    When candidate Donald Trump announced his candidacy to run for President last year we knew immediately there would be a seismic shift in the political landscape. Those who have followed politics in the last 8+ years suspected the 2016 race would inevitably boil down to Globalists -vs- U.S. Nationalists.
