    A week after an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he’d consider a bipartisan effort to continue payments to insurers to avert a costly rattling of health insurance markets. McConnell told reporters Saturday there is “still a chance” the Senate could revive the measure to repeal and replace “Obamacare,” but he acknowledged the window for that is rapidly closing. The Kentucky senator noted Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee is working on “some kind of bipartisan approach” that would involve subsidies for insurance companies. Alexander recently said he will work with the...

    As some Republicans struggle with justifying their support for Donald Trump after a series of controversies — including his recent attack on an American-born judge for his “Mexican heritage” and a doubling down on his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. — the two Republican senators from Tennessee aren't lending their overt support. Sen. Lamar Alexander isn't calling Trump the GOP nominee just yet, as reported by an Associated Press reporter. When his office was asked about the comments, Communications Director Jim Jeffries confirmed them and said, “Republicans officially choose our nominee in July. Sen. Alexander...

    The Obama administration is taking Alexander Hamilton, the first Treasury Secretary, off of the ten dollar bill.They will replace him with a woman. Scoop: Goodbye Alexander Hamilton. Hello 1st woman on the $10 bill. http://t.co/S1Or49drYo pic.twitter.com/088rppV4dP— Benny (@bennyjohnson) June 17, 2015 Dana Loesch added: There is nothing wrong now with Hamilton, a Founder, Constitution signer, and founder of the Federalist Party, on the $10 bill. The choice to remove him for a yet-to-be-named woman while a genocidal, Democrat bigot who defied a Supreme Court ruling to tickle his “relocation” fetish remains on the $20 is insulting.
  • Abortion “Doctor” Who Left Decapitated Unborn Baby Inside Mother Has License Suspended

    A Michigan abortion practitioner who botched an abortion on a woman in her second trimester and left her decapitated unborn baby inside her has had his medical license suspended. Robert Alexander’s abortion clinic was shut down in December 2013 by the city of Muskegon, Michigan after unsafe and unsanitary conditions were found. But that wasn’t the only issue. “Dr. Alexander perforated the woman’s uterus so badly that it was hanging on by two blood vessels,” another physician said in testimony about what happened in the late-term abortion. “The decapitated head of a fetus was in the woman’s abdomen and the...

    Archaeologists in northern Greece have found a skeleton inside a tomb from the time of Alexander the Great, during a dig that has enthralled the public. The burial site at Amphipolis is the largest ever discovered in Greece. The culture ministry said the almost intact skeleton belonged to a "distinguished public figure", given the tomb's dimensions and lavishness. Chief archaeologist Katerina Peristeri said "the tomb in all probability belongs to a male and a general". The excavation has fascinated Greeks ever since Prime Minister Antonis Samaras visited the site in August 2014 and announced it amounted to "an exceptionally important...

    Speculation about who the mysterious ancient tomb recently unearthed in Greece belongs to continues, with one academic now suggesting Alexander the Great’s mother was buried there. A number of scholars believe that the presence of female figures, known as caryatids, show that the tomb in the Amphipolis region of Serres belongs to a female. However, one expert has gone as far as to state that he believes that archaeologists could eventually discover the remains of Alexander the Great's parent, Olympias, inside. Writer Andrew Chugg, who has published a book on the search for the legendary leader's tomb, as well as...

    Patriots, it is frustrating and painful when a good" man of the people" candidate like Joe Carr loses to a lying Washington machine "betrayer of the people" like Lamar Alexander. The fact that Lamar Alexander voted for Obama's agenda 62% of the time is all you need to know about him. My Conservative Campaign Committee team and I were boots on the ground in Tennessee, driving all over the state participating in rallies and other events for Joe Carr. We felt the pulse of the people and there was excitement and enthusiasm for Joe. At one of the Joe Carr...

    Conservative activists are pouring every last resource into Tennessee in hopes of pulling another stunning Republican primary upset, this time in Thursday’s U.S. Senate racing pitting longtime Washington insider Lamar Alexander against tea-party upstart Joe Carr. The defeat of Rep. Eric Cantor, the House majority leader, in Virginia’s Republican primary energized the conservative base in Tennessee, providing hope that perhaps Alexander could also be ripe for the picking. While Alexander has enjoyed a healthy lead in the polls and has a huge spending advantage, his support is considered more “soft” than Carr’s and therefore more likely to stay home on...

    Political commentator and author Michelle Malkin sharply criticized Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) for his attempts to paint himself as an opponent of amnesty and Common Core. “Of course, [Alexander] is one of the biggest double-talking weasels and beltway barnacles out there, particularly on ... immigration and Common Core,” Malkin said on Monday’s “Laura Ingraham Show.” SNIP "And this is somebody, particularly on immigration, who has been an enabler for so long." She also accused Alexander of not being serious on immigration and just using political “talking points” to gain re-election. Malkin concluded that Alexander was “as radical as they come,”...

    Alexander dodges question, says he voted for amnesty to “stop perpetual amnesty” When Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) made a campaign stop at the Brainerd Road Rib & Loin Tuesday evening, he was met with a group of his primary opponent Joe Carr’s supporters who said they showed up to ask him about his vote for amnesty last year. Though Alexander dodged the question in his private campaign event, he told a reporter afterward that he didn’t vote for amnesty, he voted to “stop perpetual amnesty.” While Alexander faces six challengers in August, his strongest is State Representative Joe Carr, who...

    Calling someone the “queen of the tea party,” may be an odd appellation for a movement that has no leaders. Sarah Palin was regarded by some as the “queen of the tea party.” Conservatives immediately rallied around her in 2008, when John McCain tapped her to be the vice presidential nominee. She remained popular, but her role with the tea party exploded after the First Tea Party Convention in Nashville in 2010. In 2010, Palin held court and made appearances and endorsements. Those endorsements turned out to be very valuable to candidates in 2010. In 2012, she lost a bit...

    One year ago today, Tennessee’s senior Senator Lamar Alexander declared war on our working families by voting for amnesty. One year ago today, Lamar Alexander showed us his true colors by siding with Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and La Raza to import more than 30 million new immigrants to compete against American workers who are already struggling to find and keep full-time work. Sen. Jeff Sessions cautioned: …over the next decade, the Senate plan provides roughly 30 million mostly lower-skill immigrants with permanent residency through green cards. Less than 10 percent of these green cards are allocated through the Gang’s...

    Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) has just unleashed his latest endorsement for re-election. It comes from former Gov. Mike Huckabee. Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and 2008 presidential candidate, has a strong following of social conservatives and activists drawn to his populist political message. "He's been your governor, university president, America's secretary of education. He brought the automobile industry to Tennessee," Huckabee explains in the ad. "Lamar Alexander is now a remarkable senator that Tennessee needs to return to office." (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Alexander has released a series of endorsements in recent days, including that of country music star Kix Brooks and former...

    As Tea Party challengers grappled with the stunning news that Sen. Thad Cochran had beaten the odds to win his primary against Chris McDaniel, Tennessee candidate for Senate Joe Carr vowed that the fight would continue. “Make no mistake about it: the fight that Chris McDaniel started in Mississippi will continue here in Tennessee,” Carr announced in a statement to supporters late Tuesday night. Carr specifically criticized the Cochran campaign for working to drive out Democrat supporters to win the runoff election. According to the Associated Press, Cochran earned 50.8 percent of the vote, while McDaniel peaked with 49.2 percent....

    Tennessee State Rep. Joe Carr, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), predicted that Alexander will go the way of House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor in an appearance on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" on Wednesday. Carr stated, “Sen. Alexander has a similar problem that Leader Cantor had in that he's out of touch with his Republican base in Tennessee.” Like Cantor’s primary challenger, Dave Brat, Carr says that immigration is a strong area of contrast between him and his primary challenger, he declared “the problem Lamar Alexander has and so many of the establishment Republicans have, is...

    Between now and the end of June, more than two dozen states will hold primary elections. A major subplot of this year’s midterm elections is the competition between the Republican establishment and the tea party wing of the party. The establishment is fighting back, but has the tea party already won? The general election is still six months off. But Tuesday opens the summer preseason of intraparty contests, which starts with an important primary in North Carolina. Between now and the end of June, more than two dozen states will hold primary elections. After a July break, the preseason will...

Lamar Alexander and state Rep. Joe Carr in the twilight hours leading up to the state’s filing deadline, with virtually no groundwork and...

Republicans were 29% favoring Alexander in his primary against (largely unknown) state representative Joe Carr. Fourteen percent of Republicans favor “SOMEONE ELSE” and 8% favor Carr , a tea party favorite. Forty five percent were...
