    JUDICIAL WATCH ^ | 12/14/2018 | ADMIN
    Judicial Watch today released two sets of heavily redacted State Department documents, 38 pages and 48 pages, showing classified information was researched and disseminated to multiple U.S. Senators by the Obama administration immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The documents reveal that among those receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN). Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a February 2018 request seeking records of the Obama State Department’s...

    These are interesting times in the battle over abortion here in Tennessee. Four years ago, an effort to amend Tennessee’s state constitution was successful. Years in the making, it was one of the most expensive and vigorously contested ballot measures in the state’s history. It has led to passage of commonsense laws to regulate the abortion industry. As a practicing OB/GYN for the past two decades, I’ve often seen women who were violated by substandard care at Planned Parenthood. I know firsthand how abortion leaves women and families broken...

    The brutal murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi has opened a window into the world of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and reminded us that there are many places in the world where disagreeing with your government is a death sentence. I break with the administration on their response to this killing for many reasons. If Saudi Arabia is not held accountable for the barbaric murder of Khashoggi, what will it mean for the fate of other dissidents held in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere who are being held without trial? What message does it send to kingdoms and dictatorships around...

    Special counsel and former FBI director Robert Mueller is accused of framing a man on gun charges — a case that is officially under investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI). Writer Jerome Corsi, who rejected Mueller’s plea deal in the Russia collusion case but is still under Mueller’s microscope, actually knew about the case in question years ago, before the criminal investigation opened in Tennessee. Mueller as FBI director was accused of working with a blogger who wears a hammer and sickle Communist hat to build the law enforcement presence that led to the man’s arrest on gun...

    MEMPHIS - Ask Memphis residents and they might say that President Donald Trump got this one right: this is the best job market as far as many in this majority black city can remember. For single mother Latasha Harwell, it has meant finally landing a full time job as a medical assistant, one with the regular 9 to 5 hours she needs so she can care for her kids. Chiquita Clayton says she has an open offer to move from part-time to full-time work at a FedEx warehouse; forklift driver Kendrick Jefferson got $3 dollar an hour more for switching...

    The parent company of Carl’s Jr. says it will be closing its Anaheim office and moving those operations to Franklin, Tenn., where the company is now based, effectively ending a California legacy that started when the chain was founded in 1941 in Los Angeles. CKE, which also owns the Hardee’s, Green Burrito and Red Burrito restaurant brands, moved its Carpenteria headquarters to Franklin last year, blaming high taxes and a stringent business climate, factors that have driven other companies out of the Golden State.

She is the first in her family to graduate college, a nurse who got into politics to fix Tennessee’s healthcare system, and the first woman to chair the House Budget Committee.She’s never bought into the narrative that abortion is necessary for a woman to succeed and fighting to end abortion has been a priority for her throughout her time in Congress.In an interview with Townhall...

    The Battle of Athens, TN, 1946; a well regulated militia of WWII veterans exercised their 2nd amendment rights and overthrew their tyrannical and corrupt county government in Tennessee that was attempting to defraud voters. I. Introduction On 2 August 1946, some Americans, brutalized by their county government, used armed force to overturn it. These Americans wanted honest, open elections. For years they had asked for state or Federal election monitors to prevent vote fraud -- forged ballots, secret ballot counts, and intimidation by armed sheriff's deputies -- by the local political boss. They got no help. These Americans' absolute refusal...

    A Democratic member-elect for the Tennessee House of Representatives is under fire for slamming the state as “racist” and Republicans voters as “uneducated” in a now-deleted Facebook video. London Lamar, who ran uncontested in the state’s House District 91 and will take office in January, posted the controversial video the day after last week’s midterm elections, CBS-affiliated WREG-TV reported. “Tennessee’s racist. Period. Period. Like, Tennessee is racist,” Ms. Lamar said in the video. “Most of the Tennesseans who voted Republican are uneducated,” she added. “White men voted Republican over 60 or 70 percent, so obviously that’s a particular base of...

    The 1946 Battle of Athens, Tennessee Investigations into Cantrell and Mansfield elections began when citizens noticed that many of the votes tallied included felons and deceased members of the county. As well as the returning veterans were routinely targeted by the Sheriff’s men as they made up roughly 10 percent of the county’s voting populous. An opposing non-partisan party to Cantrell and Mansfield was formed by the returning G.I.’s and thus the 1946 battle of Athens, Tennessee began.

    Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R) declined to tell a reporter Thursday whether he had voted for Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) or her opponent, Phil Bredesen (D) in the race to replace him in the Senate when asked about his vote. Corker has endorsed Blackburn, but his support for the Trump-aligned congresswoman is seen as reluctant amid his own criticism of the Trump administration. "I think you know, so, I’ll leave it at that," he told the Nashville Tennessean on Thursday. Though adding of Blackburn, he reportedly said: "Yeah, I endorsed her early on."
