  • The 'Never Trump' Movement Admits Its Job Just Got A Lot Harder

    Talking Points Memo ^ | May 3, 2016, 7:57 PM EDT | Lauren Fox
    Advocates working to stop Donald Trump admitted Tuesday that Trump's victory in Indiana makes it harder for them to take him down now. Yet, they vowed to keep fighting. In a statement to reporters Tuesday, Never Trump PAC's senior adviser Rory Cooper said "obviously Trump's victory in Indiana makes the road ahead more challenging." "We will continue to seek opportunities to oppose his nomination and draw a clear line between him and the values of the conservative cause," Cooper said in the statement. "If nominated, he will lose in historic fashion, threatens down ballot campaigns and likely usher in a...
  • Man Gets City’s Attention by Throwing ‘Birthday Party’ for Massive Pothole

    04/28/2016 1:50:22 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 35 replies
    Oklahoma drivers know a thing or two about potholes, but one Mississippi man got so fed up with the nuisance that he decided to get the city’s attention in a unique way. “After 14 calls to 311, I thought it was time to do something different,” said Eddie Prosser. Prosser says a huge pothole in the middle of his residential street has been a nightmare for drivers. Prosser told WJTV that the pothole appeared about 16 months ago, which caused two smaller potholes to form about a year ago. When his calls for help went unanswered, Prosser decided to throw...

    San Francisco would have to stop entering into contracts with companies based in states that bar civil-rights protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people under legislation introduced Tuesday at the Board of Supervisors. The proposed ordinance, by Supervisor Scott Wiener, is another effort to increase pressure on North Carolina and Mississippi to rescind recently enacted laws to limit transgender rights.

    The reaction has been swift. The singer Bryan Adams canceled his concert in Mississippi in protest against what he called an “anti-L.G.B.T.” law, and the actress Sharon Stone decided not to film a movie there. In North Carolina, Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, Pearl Jam and Ani DiFranco have canceled shows in response to a law regulating transgender bathroom access. While the celebrity response is drawing considerable attention, the travel industry in each state is more concerned about lower-profile visitors: the everyday tourists who have already begun canceling trips or planning vacations elsewhere. Both states have been hit by hotel cancellations...

    Planned Parenthood is losing money left and right as states, outraged by its trafficking of aborted babies’ body parts, move to defund the abortion giant. This week, Mississippi legislators sent a bill to Gov. Phil Bryant that would prohibit tax dollars through Medicaid from going to groups that perform elective abortions, according to the Associated Press. Mississippi Senate Bill 2238 passed the state House on Saturday, and the state Senate gave it the final OK on Wednesday, the report states. Gov. Bryant is expected to sign it. Modeled after Texas legislation, the bill was introduced after pro-life legislators witnessed the...

    Ammoland ^ | 15 April, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    Mississippi became the 9th state to restore permitless carry today, the 15th of April, 2016.  It seems poetic that Governor Bryant chose to sign HB 786 into law a few days before most citizens were required to file their federal taxes. The easing of one burden helps reduce the pain of another, in this case.  HB 786 is titled the “Church Protection Act”, which is a correct description.  The bill provides that churches can create volunteer church security that will have the same protections that private security guards now have in Mississippi.  The program will require training and the...

    There is no shortage of conservative legislation being signed in Mississippi. Last week, Gov. Phil Bryant signed into law a bill protecting religious individuals from being forced to violate their conscience. This week, the Mississippi governor signed a law reaffirming the 2nd Amendment by permitting church members to carry firearms in church. The Church Protection Act, Politico reports, allows trained members of a church congregation to carry weapons into their house of worship for protection. It does not require those individuals to hold a permit to carry holstered weapons.

    JACKSON, Miss. — Gov. Phil Bryant has signed into law a bill that allows some members of churches to undergo firearms training so they can provide armed security for their congregations. The Church Protection Act specifies that those designated can carry guns into church buildings. It also allows people to carry holstered weapons without a permit. Republican state Rep. Andy Gipson of Braxton says the law gives small congregations an option to defend themselves against attack. He proposed the bill as a response to the slayings last year of nine people at a church in Charleston, South Carolina. The Mississippi...

    In the Navy, you can sail the seven seas The future USS Portland is already in the water, but it has yet to be commissioned. The ceremony to do so was scheduled to be held in Pascagoula, Mississippi at the end of May, but then the state decided to put its hatred, its bigotry, and its antiquated notions about the 1st Amendment on display. Since we’re a hyper-sensitive society that subsists on faux-outrage, we can’t tolerate any of that “religious freedom” nonsense. Super-important dignitaries refused to attend, so the Navy has determined that the christening simply had to be moved.

In his first interview since his veto two weeks ago of House Bill 757, Deal said Tuesday he’s concerned religious conservatives who plan to revive the measure next year will put Georgia through another contentious debate. “I don’t want to go through the same process all over...

    A federal judge said Tuesday that the Confederate emblem on the Mississippi flag is "anti-American" because it represents those who fought to leave the United States. But U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves is not yet saying whether he will fully consider a lawsuit that seeks to eliminate the flag as a state symbol. Reeves heard more than three hours of arguments about motions in the lawsuit that Carlos Moore, an African-American attorney from Grenada, Mississippi, filed against the state. Moore is asking Reeves to declare the flag an unconstitutional relic of slavery.

Members of the club can no longer claim any exclusivity.  They range from the East coast to the Pacific, from Alaska to Arizona, with midwest, eastern, and western members.  At 10 members, the club is larger than the dwindling "may issue"...

    JACKSON — In a surprise move Tuesday, the Mississippi House targeted Medicaid funding for the state’s only abortion clinic in addition to the state’s sole Planned Parenthood clinic. The bill would prohibit the Mississippi Division of Medicaid from paying any entity that performs non-therapeutic abortions even for non-abortion services. The original Senate Bill 2238 was drafted with language that would prohibit the state’s only Planned Parenthood clinic, which does not offer abortions, from receiving Medicaid reimbursements for “family planning services.” Rep. Joey Hood, R-Ackerman, authored an amendment that struck all of the Senate bill’s language and replaced it with language...

U.S. District Judge Daniel Jordan, in a preliminary injunction issued Thursday, ruled for the couples who had sued, saying the ban is unconstitutional after recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions legalizing gay marriage and benefits for gay couples. He ordered John Davis, executive director of the Department of Human Services to stop enforcing it.

Tindell pointed to last year’s massacre at a church in Charleston, South Carolina as an example of why churches need an armed guard. Others said...

Even me," he added before stating -- in reference to Trump's inflammatory positions on immigration -- that the United States is not obligated in any capacity to support illegal immigrants.
