    This is good news for those who believe Tennessee's senate seat that Bob Corker is currently defiling. Marsha Blackburn poll numbers from the commissioned by the Committee to Defend the President, which plans to spend heavily in an effort to help Blackburn — found 38 percent of those surveyed supported the Republican congressman while 35 percent favored Bredesen. It continues to narrow from her high lead of 9 In a December poll but given Tennessee's history of narrow elections, this is to be expected. Barring the unforeseen, this is good news for Marasha, President Trump and the Senate increasing it's...

    National Review ^ | July 16, 2018 | MAIREAD MCARDLE
    Republican lawmakers were left shaking their heads after President Trump’s Monday’s press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin, in which Trump declined to endorse the American intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.) called it “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory” and a “tragic mistake” in a statement. “No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant,” McCain said. “The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate.” House speaker Paul Ryan also...

    Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup.

    Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., said he regrets telling FBI agent Peter Strzok in Thursday’s House Judiciary and House Oversight committee hearing that he deserves a Purple Heart medal for his testimony. “I said something at the hearings yesterday about Purple Hearts which another network that is named for a four-legged animal has been making a big deal about,” Cohen told CNN, referring to criticism from Fox News. “I regret using the term ‘Purple Heart,’” he continued. “I used it metaphorically, not literally. I never literally thought the Purple Heart should be given to agent Strzok. But I do believe that...

    One of the most egregious displays of Trump Derangement Syndrome to occur during the Peter Strzok’s Congressional testimony on Thursday was demonstrated by Tennessee Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen who told disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok that he should be awarded a Purple Heart. “If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one. This has been an attack on you, in a way to attack Mr. Mueller, in the investigation that is to get at Russia collusion involved in our election,” Rep. Cohen said. Cohen’s belief that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart, one of the highest...

    On Thursday, FBI agent Peter Strzok testified on Capitol Hill, answering questions about his anti-Trump bias and the investigation into alleged ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia. Strzok gave conflicting explanations of his anti-Trump text messages and dodged important questions, but Democrats in Congress proved quite happy with his testimony. "If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one," Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) told Strzok. "This has been an attack on you [and] the investigation, to get to Russian collusion involved in our election which is what this committee should be looking at," the...

    Short video at link. FBI Agent Peter Strzok was grilled on Capitol Hill Thursday by members of Congress for sending anti-Trump texts during two ongoing investigations. Well, he was at least grilled by the Republicans. The likes of Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Louie Gohmert (R-TX) demanded to know whether Strzok let his political bias affect his job. He admitted that he "detested" Donald Trump, but at no point did his political ideology factor in to his work at the FBI. The interrogators didn't believe him. Gohmert was particularly combative, telling Strzok he didn't appreciate the "smirk"...

    Reliably red on the political map, Huntington is a West Virginia town with a 191-year-old university, a storied football team and more than 100 churches. It’s where Will Lockwood graduated from high school. It’s where he enrolled at Marshall University. It’s where he first tried OxyContin. By the time Lockwood entered Marshall as a freshman, Detroit dealers were trickling into Huntington selling OxyContin and pills with OxyContin’s active ingredient, oxycodone. Even though Lockwood could step out his front door and get the drug, Detroit street dealers weren’t the preferred supplier. Florida was. It may be 1,000 miles away, but to...

    the Hill ^ | 11/07/18 | JORDAIN CARNEY
    The Senate on Wednesday took a symbolic shot at President Trump’s trade policy amid anxiety on Capitol Hill over his tariff strategy. Senators voted 88-11 to instruct lawmakers hashing out a deal on a government funding bill to include language “providing a role for Congress” on tariffs implemented for national security reasons, known as Section 232 of the trade laws. The vote is nonbinding, meaning lawmakers don’t have to add trade language into the funding bill. But the vote margin, with more senators supporting it than the amount needed to override a veto, underscores the depth of concern on Capitol...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) warned Republicans against continuing their "assault" against Robert Mueller, writing in an op-ed Friday that the GOP must let Mueller continue his investigation. In an opinion piece for The Washington Post, the former Tennessee Republican urged Republicans to fight for the "rule of law," even if it meant going up against the Trump administration. "I am also a Republican because I believe in the rule of law. Republicans must fight for that principle today — even if it means pushing back against a Republican administration," Frist wrote. "It isn’t easy to tell a...

    Randy Boyd is literally running to become Tennessee's next governor. The founder and chairman of Radio Systems in Knoxville is an avid marathon runner who turned his passion for running into a 537.3-mile run across the state over 13 weeks last year to introduce himself — and more importantly, he says, listen to what others are saying — in his first bid for elected office. Boyd's journey from Bristol to Memphis mirrors now-U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander's famous walk across the state in his gubernatorial bid four decades ago — with a couple of differences. "I didn't wear a plaid shirt...
