    The Center Square ^ | 1/27/2023 | Bethany Blankley
    Twenty-five attorneys general and several other plaintiffs have sued the Biden administration asking the court to halt a federal ESG policy that could negatively impact the retirement savings of 152 million Americans. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court Northern District Amarillo Division naming Secretary of Labor Martin Walsh and the U.S. Department of Labor as defendants. It alleges the U.S. Department of Labor created a rule prioritizing “woke” Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing that jeopardizes the retirement savings of 152 million workers, or two-thirds of the U.S. population. Last November, the Department of Labor finalized a rule...

    Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) lectured Americans while in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting, urging them to accept amnesty for the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens. During a panel discussion alongside Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), and others, Salazar said some form of amnesty is necessary for illegal aliens living across the United States. She said: We need to also give dignity to those people who are in the country and those are the people that I represent. We’re talking about 13 to 15 million people — who are, most of them, Hispanics,...

    The Federalist ^ | 1/13/23 | Shawn Fleetwood
    The son of a notable Alabama civil rights activist was indicted on charges related to voter fraud on Wednesday, undercutting claims by leftist organizations and corporate media that legitimate concerns about the issue are unfounded. According to Advance Local, an Alabama news outlet, Perry County Commission Chairman Albert Turner Jr. has been charged by Fourth Judicial Circuit District Attorney Michael Jackson and Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill “with voting more than once, which is a misdemeanor, and harvesting ballots, a felony.” The alleged incidents occurred during two separate elections in May and November of last year.

    A giant storm system billowing across the South on Thursday killed at least six people in central Alabama, where a savage tornado ripped roofs off homes and uprooted trees in historic Selma. In Autauga County, Alabama, 41 miles northeast of Selma, at least six fatalities were confirmed and an estimated 40 homes were damaged or destroyed by a tornado that cut a 20-mile path across two rural communities... ...southeast of Atlanta, the storm appeared to have knocked a freight train off its tracks, officials said.

  • A woman who left Alabama to join ISIS says she felt 'broken' after she was stripped of her US citizenship

    A woman who ran away from home in Alabama to join ISIS said she felt "broken" when the US revoked her citizenship for aiding the terror group. Hoda Muthana spoke in an interview with The News Movement (TNM), conducted from a prison camp in Syria where she is being held by US-allied forces. She said she wanted to return to the US, and volunteered to serve time in prison if necessary. That seems unlikely to happen — the Obama administration stripped Muthana of citizenship in 2016. In 2019, then-President Donald Trump tweeted that he had personally barred Muthana from the...

    A woman who ran away from home in Alabama at the age of 20, joined the Islamic State group and had a child with one of its fighters says she still hopes to return to the United States, serve prison time if necessary, and advocate against the extremists. In a rare interview from the Roj detention camp in Syria where she is being held by US-allied Kurdish forces, Hoda Muthana said she was brainwashed by online traffickers into joining the group in 2014 and regrets everything except her young son, now of pre-school age. But four years earlier, at the...

    The Independent News ^ | 2 Jan 2023 | Gemma Iso
    In Alabama, people are now allowed to carry guns without a state permit requiring background checks. The law took effect on January 1, making Alabama the 25th state to push thru with this kind of legislation. Proponents of the legislation have been unsuccessful for many years in Montgomery, but this year, they won approval. The regulation was advocated by gun rights advocates who call it “constitutional carry,” with reference to the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Despite the win, detractors including state sheriffs and other law enforcers continue to maintain that gun permits help fight crime and...
  • Retiring Sen. Richard Shelby Slips $656 Million Worth of Earmarks into $1.7 Trillion Omnibus

    Outgoing Senate Appropriations Committee Vice Chair Richard Shelby (R-AL) slipped $656 million worth of earmarks into the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill. Congressional leaders dropped the $1.7 trillion, 4,155-page omnibus spending bill at 1:30 a.m. ET, giving lawmakers little time to digest the implications of the mammoth legislation. While the bill may have many major reforms that are readily apparent, lawmakers also slipped hard-to-find earmarks into the bill. Many lawmakers, such as Shelby, are retiring and face few political repercussions for pushing a bill that contains many special interest carveouts and increases the deficit.

    Proposed changes to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) rules will strip access to public waters and devastate local economies along most of the eastern U.S. coastline, according to boating and fishing advocacy groups. The North Atlantic Right Whale Vessel Strike Reduction Rule will decimate the U.S.’s multi-billion-dollar boating and fishing industry without protecting endangered North Atlantic right whales (NARW) from severe injuries and deaths, the Center for Sportfishing Policy (CSP) and the South Carolina Boating and Fishing Alliance (SCBFA) told the Daily Caller. NOAA’s proposed regulation expands the speed-restricted area, the Seasonal Speed Zone, up to 90 miles out,...

    Remember the University of Alabama transgender student who was rejected by every sorority “she” rushed? The allegedly female TikTok influencer apparently doesn’t know how to use one of the most female of products — a tampon. Grant Sikes was turned down by 19 sororities at UA which the student documented on the social media video platform. Sikes called the rejections “extremely upsetting” and “sad,” but was “hopeful for a future where everyone is welcomed for just being themselves.” According to Newsbusters, Sikes now is emulating Dylan Mulvaney, a “trans actress, comedian and content creator” who recently got an audience with...

Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) says it is not time to close the books on the January 6, 2021 incident just yet. During an interview with Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show," Carl said once the GOP is in charge, Republicans should look at the findings of the Democrat-assembled January 6 House Select Committee.

    For decades the Democrats and leftists have fought ferociously to prevent the cleanup of State voter registration rolls. Recognizing a potential niche, left wing activists created ERIC to clean voter rolls their way, using their rules. So in 2012 the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) was formed as a membership organization primarily for blue States. ERIC is essentially a left wing voter registration drive disguised as voter roll clean up. But it’s been gaining traction in Red States too. Originally funded by the Soros Open Society, it is now responsible for cleaning the voter rolls in 31 States, plus D.C....

    President Joe Biden (D) snapped at a young woman who attended a political rally that he hosted on Sunday at Sarah Lawrence College in New York for gubernatorial candidate Kathy Hochul. “No more drilling. There is no more drilling,” Biden snapped at a young woman in the crowd. “I haven’t formed any new drilling.” “There are at least five more years of offshore drilling,” the woman shouted back. “— in the Atlantic or the Pacific but in the Antarctic and off the gulf of New Mexico.” “That was before I was president,” Biden responded. “We’re trying to work on that...

    A federal judge rebuked the DOJ this week for targeting conservative nonprofit Eagle Forum of Alabama with a stunning subpoena — punishing the wrongthinker on gender ideology by process and sending a chilling message to other dissenters from regime orthodoxy. The judge’s ruling came in Boe v. Marshall, a case in which the Justice Department intervened this spring, suing Alabama over the constitutionality of its Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act. That law prohibits Alabamans from rendering so-called “gender-affirming care” to minors — which can include giving them puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones and even surgically removing their breasts and...

    BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Long-time Democratic political consultant James Carville says some wild things in American politics could be coming over the next two years. During a talk, part of Alabama-based PARCA’s Speaker Series, held at the Red Mountain Theatre in Birmingham, Carville said he did not expect former President Donald Trump nor President Joe Biden to be on the 2024 presidential election ballot. “I don’t think Trump or Biden will be on the ballot in 2024,” he said. “I’m going to be 78 in less than a month. The country needs a generational change. I think they’re going to get...

    Moments after police arrested an Alabama pastor watering his neighbor’s plants, an officer who witnessed Michael Jennings spraying the foliage with a water hose expressed doubt at Jennings’ version of events, according to body cam footage released Tuesday. Jennings, a Black pastor at Vision of Abundant Life Ministries in Sylacauga, was arrested on obstruction charges in the late May incident in Childersburg. The charges have since been dropped. Lawyers for Jennings obtained body cam footage from Childersburg police and released the video Tuesday, which also showed that Jennings identified himself as “Pastor Jennings” and officers denying that the minister identified...
