    It will be another four and a half months before Republican voters in Alabama select a GOP nominee to face incumbent Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in the Nov. 3, 2020 general election. However, there could be a familiar face among the list of candidates on the ballot. In recent days, there has been rampant speculation that former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions could enter the contest for his old seat. Sessions held the seat currently occupied by Jones from 1997 through 2017. He gave up that seat to serve in the Trump administration until his unceremonious exit in late 2018....

    Thousands of pro-lifers stood outside in all kinds of weather Sunday to pray for unborn babies and their mothers. People gathered in about 1,600 communities in the United States and Canada for the annual Life Chain, according to organizers. The event brings pro-lifers together in their local communities to pray for an end to abortion and peacefully witness to the truth about life in the womb. In West Reading, Pennsylvania, about 75 people stood on the sidewalks in the rain, holding signs encouraging mothers to choose life, the Reading Eagle reports. “We got rained on quite well but people stayed...
  • Planned Parenthood has been building a secret "mega-clinic" in the Metro East (Abortion)

    KMOV4 ^ | October 1, 2019 | Kate Smith / CBS News
    (CBS News/ KMOV) -- After over a year of secret construction, Planned Parenthood announced its newest abortion facility on Wednesday: an 18,000-square-foot mega-clinic in Fairview Heights. The new location is just 13 miles away from Missouri's last remaining abortion clinic, a facility in St. Louis fighting to keep its license. Since August 2018, Planned Parenthood has used a shell company to construct the facility, leaving no public trace that the former medical office would become one of the largest abortion clinics in the country. CBS News first visited the site in August, while it was still being built. Colleen McNicholas,...

    The United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton hosted “the Sviatovid idol” which depicts a ninth-century Slavic deity, as part of a September 6-7 festival of lights. Sviatovid (alternately known as Svetovid, Svantovit, Sventovit, or Svantevit) was a local Slavic god of war, fertility, and abundance in the Baltic region.
  • Dem Senator: Ukraine Whistleblower Complaint is ‘Hearsay’

    Sen. Doug Jones (D., Ala.) said much of the Ukraine whistleblower complaint depended on "hearsay" and that Congress cannot impeach officials based on hearsay during a Sunday interview on MSNBC's Kasie DC. Jones broke with House Democrats when he criticized the whistleblower allegation that launched the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The first-term senator said he was skeptical of using secondhand complaints as the basis for removing a sitting president from office, echoing the sentiments of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.). "A lot of that allegation, a lot of the whistleblower complaint is in fact hearsay. It is what...

    Mo Brooks, the Republican congressman from Huntsville who represents five north Alabama counties, is having a crappy morning. It even stinks, you might could say. Brooks has never shied from controversy and, on Thursday, he stepped in it again. Deliberately. And he even went so far as to make sure President Donald Trump knew about it. So enough of the bull. Brooks tweeted his thoughts about the whistleblower report released Thursday that made serious allegations against Trump – a report that has led his Democratic colleagues in the House to launch impeachment inquiries. That picture, attached to the Twitter post,...

    Thursday during an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) argued that although House Democrats will likely pass a number of gun control bills that will not make it through the U.S. Senate, the long-term strategy was to get at the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms. Brooks told “The Jeff Poor Show” it was an incremental process Democrats are using to erode support for the right to bear arms. “The Democrats, Nancy Pelosi — they believe they have a winning issue here,” Brooks said. “So they’re going to force vote after vote om ultimately repealing the...

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) took to the floor of the House of Representatives to blast his Democratic party colleagues over their lack of interest in protecting Americans from dangerous illegal aliens. In an epic speech, Brooks told the story of a young girl and her grandmother, killed by illegal MS-13 animals last summer in his hometown of Huntsville: In July, 2018, in my hometown of Huntsville, Alabama, two drug cartel-related illegal aliens took Oralia Mendoza and her 13-year-old granddaughter Mariah Lopez from their home in the dark of night. Oralia was stabbed to death, while her teenaged granddaughter Mariah was...

    Brooks continued, “A lot of us don’t have security clearances. It doesn’t seem to be a problem in life. The reason they keep people on security clearance after their time in office is so they can offer advice. And I think, frankly, it’s a little of a vanity thing, that people get to say, I still have my security clearance. And so, when it’s taken away — but John Brennan wasn’t giving the Trump administration advice anyway. And so the idea they have to live without security clearance after they’ve been out of office doesn’t strike me as one of...

    Rep. Mo Brooks was the true Trumpian candidate in Alabama, which is why I endorsed him in the primary (here, here and here). When the accusations against Roy Moore first arose, I proposed that the president make a deal to replace Moore with Brooks. Obviously, the GOP would be in a much better position right now if only Republicans had learned to hang on my every word. Instead, everyone did exactly the wrong thing, and they got the worst of all possible worlds. Trump should have endorsed Brooks in the primary, but he endorsed Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s pro-amnesty...

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) on Tuesday called for an end to all federal government support of the NFL amid controversy over players taking a knee in protest during the national anthem. "I believe we ought to terminate all federal government support of the NFL," Brooks told Breitbart News. "That would include the termination of any and all advertising that is done on behalf of the federal government — military and nonmilitary — to the extent we do any." "The same thing with any other professional sport that insults our country and our flag and our anthem as the NFL has...

He said Blazing Saddles, his Western spoof about a black sheriff in a racist town, could "never" be made today. "It's OK not to hurt the feelings of various tribes and groups," he said.

    Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said Friday that it's time for new leadership in the Senate after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., failed to bring a healthcare reform bill over the finish line. Brooks said on CNN that he hopes the Senate doesn't stop trying to pass a bill, but said if the Senate is done, the GOP should start looking for a new leader. "If they're gonna quit, well then, by golly, maybe they ought to start at the top with Mitch McConnell leaving his position, and letting somebody new, somebody bold, somebody conservative take the reins so that they...

    This week, Alabama congressman Mo Brooks introduced a bill that amounted to a one-line repeal of Obamacare. The bill read "Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.” ... “It’s what we promised the American people,” Brooks told Buck of the bill. “Repeal Obamacare. It's not a hundred-and-some page bill that on the one hand says we're repealing, but on the other says we're going to reincorporate all the provisions...

    On the same day that the House of Representatives canceled its vote on Ryancare, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks filed a simple one-line bill to repeal Obama’s signature health care law. The Huntsville Republican titled the bill ‘Obamacare Repeal Act.” It is short and to the point, AI.com reported. “Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill reads. Brooks, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, told constituents last...
  • Rep. Mo Brooks files bill to repeal Obamacare

    simple two-page document, an Alabama congressman has filed a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal Obamacare. Or, as it is stated in the bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, introduced the bill Friday. "This Act may be cited as the 'Obamacare Repeal Act,'" the bill states. And the bill uses just one sentence to do it. "Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act...

While Boehner’s resignation is not effective until October 30, Brooks speculated on who the replacement would be, saying there is a “smorgasbord” of potential replacements “from the more liberal-wing of the Republican Party.”
