    An Alabama man diagnosed with terminal lung cancer confessed Wednesday to killing another man 25 years ago, solving a cold case murder that had "nothing else to follow up on," according to authorities. Johnny Dwight Whited, 53, of Trinity, called the Decatur Police Department wanting to confess to the murder, telling police he wished to "lift a weight from his chest" and that he was prepared to “meet his maker," authorities said. After the call, detectives met with Whited, who provided information that matched evidence and information in the case, authorities said. They said he led them to the crime...

    Gov. Kay Ivey has announced her intentions regarding keeping Alabama.“I will not shut down businesses; the business community certainly has my support,” Ivey wrote on Twitter. “As I’ve said many times, you cannot have a life without a livelihood.” Ivey has gradually lessened restrictions since the first Stay at Home order she issued for April. Most recently, her Safer at Home order removed capacity limits for businesses so long as social distancing and mask guidelines are followed.

    PJ Media ^ | 11/11/2020 | Rick Moran
    For a party that believes they got a House majority and a president elected, the Democrats are in total disarray. They were expected to do better. They thought they’d do better. The media was telling them they’d do better. Pollsters were telling them they’d do better. The voters said otherwise. Instead of walking away with the presidency, the Senate, and an increase in their majority in the House, Democrats came up short. Republicans have won at least five additional seats in the House and are leading in three others that Democratic incumbents are trying to defend. Republicans were projected to...

    “When we have a vote on the House floor, there is no way in the world I’m going to be voting to ratify the Electoral College votes from states where I believe that illegal votes have distorted the will of the people in those states who have cast their votes illegally,” Brooks added. “And we’ll see how that goes. It is not the Supreme Court who decides who is the President of the United States, under the Constitution, it is the Congress who makes that decision.” Such an outcome could force the 50 U.S. House state delegations to determine the...

    ALABAMA, November 4, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Republican Tommy Tuberville unseated pro-abortion Democrat Senator Doug Jones in Alabama on Tuesday, a major win for pro-lifers. The affectionate “Coach” moniker refers to Tuberville’s former career as a college football coach. Tuberville is the only coach in Auburn University football history to beat rival University of Alabama six times in a row. College football is a huge part of the state’s culture. The southern state is generally very pro-life. When former Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) resigned to become Attorney General, he was replaced by Senator Doug Jones in a close special election in...

    Earth’s atmosphere sees several thousand meteors of fireball magnitude each day, so they are quite common. We are just typically unable to see them due to daylight and because a vast majority occur over oceans and uninhabited regions. However, the brighter the fireball, the more rare it is. Do fireballs make a sound? Sounds like sociology’s favorite question of “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a noise?” But the answer is quite interesting. According to the American Meteor Society, fireballs can make a sound—two in fact. Both generated...

    Alabama voters will see six statewide constitutional amendments when they fill out their absentee ballots to vote early or go to the polls on Nov. 3.

(To see the wording of the amendments as they will appear on their ballot, scroll to the bottom of the article. Amendment 1 says that “only” citizens of the United States have a right to vote in Alabama, providing...
