  • Breaking: Alabama Becomes Second State to Take Election Security Seriously and Terminate ERIC Contract

    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....

    Start spreading the poop: New Yorkers may get stuck with 2.4 million pounds per day of their own excrement if a national rail strike occurs. Normally, the trains that transport human waste from New York City wind up in landfills across the South, but the tentative deal that the Biden administration brokered between the rail workers and railroad companies came asunder on Monday. “We are working closely with our contracted vendors and are prepared to do all that we can in a worst-case scenario, but let me be clear: a prolonged disruption of the rail network for trash removal represents...

    Stanford administrators and the public safety department have been aware since at least December 2021 that William Curry, the Alabama local who was removed from campus Thursday, had pretended to be a Stanford student and lived in multiple University dorms, according to communications obtained by The Daily. The University kept silent about the security threat posed by Curry despite his removal multiple times from campus and a student’s police report of harassment. He continued to return, interacting again and again with residential staff who had not been made aware of the man posing as a student and living in dorms....

(Cook is pictured above, at left, alongside Owen and Gentry at a 2016 event heralding the opening of...

    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...

    Monday’s decision probably won’t stop the Biden DOJ’s abuse of power, but the Eagle Forum and Southeast Law Institute’s victory is proof the battle can be won. A federal judge in Alabama quashed the invasive subpoena the Biden administration served on the conservative Eagle Forum and Southeast Law Institute, holding the material sought from the nonprofits fell outside the scope of discovery relevant to the Department of Justice’s lawsuit challenging Alabama’s law banning chemical and surgical transgender experimentation on minors. Monday’s victory proves Americans can fight back against the Biden administration’s weaponizing of the DOJ. The Department of Justice had...

"I am glad he did it," the employee said on Twitter Tuesday in reference to Burton’s alleged swat of the female fan. "Should have knocked her head off. Not supposed to be on the field anyway."'

    FORT MORGAN, Ala. – When the waves from Hurricane Ike receded, they left behind a mystery — a ragged shipwreck that archeologists say could be a two-masted Civil War schooner that ran aground in 1862 or another ship from some 70 years later. The wreck, about six miles from Fort Morgan, had already been partially uncovered when Hurricane Camille cleared away sand in 1969. Researchers at the time identified it as the Monticello, a battleship that partially burned when it crashed trying to get past the U.S. Navy and into Mobile Bay during the Civil War.

Brian Brainard Wedgeworth, 46, who formerly lived in the Florida capital city of Tallahassee and in Center Point, Alabama, used 10 different aliases as part of the scheme, U.S. Attorney Jason Cody said in a news release. "Our citizens should not be preyed upon by fraudsters who steal through overtures of affection," Cody said.

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...

    A Louisiana federal judge on Wednesday permanently blocked the federal government from enforcing its mask and vaccine mandates for children and teachers in public preschool. The Head Start program, which provides early education to infants, toddlers, and kids preparing for kindergarten, cannot require that any adults or students in the applicable centers or daycare be vaccinated against Covid-19 or wear masks, U.S. District Court Judge Terry A. Doughty ruled. The regulation applied to children as young as two years old, Doughty noted, both indoors and outdoors during activities that involve close contact with other people. The court rejected the argument...

    The Justice Department has hit the Eagle Forum of Alabama with a voluminous subpoena that violates the organization’s First Amendment rights to speak freely, engage in the political process, and talk to their elected representatives. It’s an intimidation tactic, pure and simple, and shows just how partisan the department has become. This out-of-control behavior should scare every citizen and volunteer organization, no matter where they stand on the political or social spectrum. Eagle Forum is a very small non-profit in Alabama. It only has one full-time employee and a second, part-time employee. Virtually all of its work on issues of...
