    GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander told CNBC that he will vote again for an amnesty, even though his vote for the Democratic-led 2013 amnesty bill helped demolish his establishment GOP peers during the 2016 primaries and election. “We need a legal immigration system, and we need to put that behind us,” he told CNBC’s John Harwood. “We tried to do it in 2013; I voted for it. It would’ve solved many of the problems … I would vote for it again.”

    HUMBOLDT, Tenn. (AP) — Tyson Foods Inc. plans to build a new chicken production complex in Tennessee, a $300 million project that is expected to create more than 1,500 jobs when the facility begins operations in late 2019, the company said Monday. The new plant in Humboldt, about 85 miles northeast of Memphis, will produce pre-packaged trays of fresh chicken for retail grocery stores nationwide, the Springdale, Arkansas-based company said in a statement before a news conference. The plant will help it meet strong consumer demand for its chicken. The announcement marks the second major economic development project Tyson has...

    This is a sad but predictable result of a pastor who leads a church to apostatize from the Christian faith. Walking away from Jesus is not a catalyst for church growth. On the contrary, it is the catalyst for church death. Believers in such churches will eventually leave, and those that remain to embrace the error will be an unfaithful remnant. It may be a gathering of people, but it will not be a gathering of born-again people and will not therefore be a church of the Lord Jesus. Two years ago TIME magazine highlighted an evangelical “megachurch” whose pastor had...

Steve Cohen (Tenn.), Luis Gutiérrez (Ill.), Al Green (Texas), Adriano Espaillat (N.Y.), Marcia Fudge (Ohio) and John Yarmuth (Ky.) said the five articles of impeachment come out of concern for the country's national security. "We believe that President Trump has violated the Constitution, and we've introduced five articles of impeachment," Cohen said at a press conference.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Phone calls from the accused Antioch church shooter, Emanuel Samson, revealed shocking new revelations. NewsChannel 5 obtained exclusive, recorded copies of those calls. Samson's defense attorneys don't want his recorded phone calls to be made public. They filed an injunction which was denied by a judge. You have a right to see the content of these calls and Samson has a right to get a new attorney. He was charged with killing Melanie Crow Smith and injuring six others in a shooting at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch last month. Since then he's been represented...

    White nationalists and neo-Nazis are expected to converge on the small Tennessee cities of Shelbyville and Murfreesboro on Saturday to protest refugee resettlement in the state, seven months after it sued the U.S. government over the issue. The “White Lives Matter” rally, by some of the groups involved in a Virginia march in August that turned violent, is also expected to draw hundreds of counter-demonstrators and a heavy local police presence. The organizers said they chose middle Tennessee partly in hopes of avoiding clashes, but said protesters could bring shields, goggles and helmets for protection. The rally, named in response...

CALLER: Well, I’ll calling, I had two points. The first is that I’m very angry with Senator Corker’s childish and disrespectful comments regarding the president. I have spent my whole morning, and as soon as the office opened, try to reach someone in his office. Apparently the rest of Tennessee is angry with him, too, because I can’t get through. And my other comment is — RUSH: Wait a minute....
  • Twitter Blocks Marsha Blackburn Campaign Announcement Video for ‘Inflammatory’ Pro-Life Message

    Twitter has blocked Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn's (Tenn.) Senate campaign announcement ad, ruling that a pro-life statement was "inflammatory." At one point in the video, Blackburn, who announced last week that she is running for the Senate in Tennessee, heralded how she "stopped the sale of baby body parts," a reference to her investigation into Planned Parenthood's reported practice of "donating" body parts in return for monetary compensation. But a Twitter representative told the Blackburn campaign that Twitter blocked the ad from being promoted, calling it "an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction," the Associated...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is offering support to Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) amid a war of words between the latter and President Trump. "Sen. Corker is a valuable member of the Senate Republican caucus and he’s also on the Budget committee and a particularly important player as we move to the floor on the budget next week and he’s an important part of our team,” McConnell said Monday in Kentucky, according to the Associated Press. Asked about whether he agreed with Corker's criticism of Trump, McConnell sidestepped, adding: "[Corker is] an important part of our team and he's...

    FULL TITLE: Bannon: Corker Should ‘Resign Immediately’ After Revealing GOP Establishment Wants to Nullify ’16 Election Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon called on Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) to “resign immediately” on Monday evening after Corker revealed on Sunday that Bannon was right when Bannon said the Republican establishment wants to “nullify the 2016 election” in which Donald Trump won the White House by aggressively running on an economic nationalist agenda. Corker got into a Twitter spat with Trump on Sunday, tweeting that, “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed...
  • Just Hours After Las Vegas Shooting, Man Arrested with Cache of Automatic Weapons & Ammo in His Car

    Some have said that 43-year-old Scott Edmisten, who was arrested hours after the Las Vegas shooting for doing 55mph in a 30mph zone at 4am on Monday and found with a cache of weapons and ammo including fully automatic rifles, was possibly Stephen Paddock's accomplice. So, far it seems unlikely. First, for the record, I have no problem with people having weapons of all sorts and under the Second Amendment, that should be protected. With that said, it is curious that all of this was in his car, not his home, at 4am in the morning.
