    Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, praised former President Donald Trump on Friday for making everybody "afraid" while he served in the White House, lamenting that people no longer feel that fear. The GOP senator made the remarks as he spoke at the Faith & Freedom Coalition's Road to Majority Policy Conference held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Trump also spoke at the event, as did a slate of prominent Republicans, including Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and former South Carolina...

According to police, two members of the group approached the technician from behind around...

    A pastor from Tennessee who said Democrats couldn’t be Christians because of the party’s pro-choice stance noted that he gave up his tax-exempt status. Pastor Greg Locke of Mt. Juliet’s Global Vision Bible Church, close to Nashville, told his congregants he considered Democrats to be “baby butchers.” In a sermon earlier this month, Locke said: “You cannot be a Christian and vote Democrat in this nation. I don’t care how mad that makes you. You can get as pissed off as you want to. You cannot be a Christian and vote Democrat in this nation. They are God-denying demons that...

    Eryanna Giles says she was walking on the sidewalk in front of Nudie’s on Broadway when 22-year-old Shawntranise Waller suddenly punched her and pushed her out of the way. A large brawl then broke out, and 22-year-old Roneqwua Hayes and 21-year-old Janeshia Leggs both joined in the fight. Leggs and Hayes were quickly apprehended by nearby officers who observed the fight, however, as they approached Waller to take her into custody she began to resist and fight the Metro Nashville Police Officers. It took nearly a half-dozen officers 5-7 minutes to get her into custody, according to their own report....

    The “diversity and inclusion” agenda pushed by professional left-wing firms is just critical race theory by a more appealing name. Most conservatives are aware of the dangers lurking in public schools now. Thanks to the work of people like Christopher Rufo and the LibsofTikTok Twitter account, we now see the insidious ideas left-wing educators want to teach kids. The schools that receive the most attention for indoctrinating kids are usually in your typical blue areas: New York City, Portland, San Francisco, etc. What gets less attention is the subversion going on in solid red counties. Yes, even schools in areas...

    During a meeting of the Metropolitan Nashville Board of Public Education this week, a hot mic caught board members apparently pondering "can we just go set Marsha Blackburn on fire?" — the latest instance of public school boards saying the quiet part out loud and revealing their partisan hostility against conservatives and Republicans. Video from the meeting, posted here on March 23rd by the district, captures the moment starting around the 1:02 mark after the school board tried to bring its meeting to order but, still lacking a quorum, called for a short break during which a copy of the...

    A long list of establishment Republican “Never Trump” operatives are hosting a fundraiser for Alabama Senate Republican candidate Katie Britt, Breitbart News has learned. On Wednesday, Britt will hold a fundraiser in Nashville, Tennessee, organized by fundraiser Kim Kaegi who has deep connections to the “Never Trump” wing of the Republican Party. Previously, for instance, Kaegi worked as a fundraiser for the likes of Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and former Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN). Corker repeatedly opposed former President Trump’s “America First” agenda and even suggested that a Republican primary him in his 2020 presidential re-election bid. Both Alexander and...

    A Nashville, Tennessee, woman who got tired of men ghosting her after dates created an innovative and unique strategy to find out what went wrong. Shanna, 30, shared a now-viral TikTok earlier this month where she revealed that she created an exit interview test for men to understand why they left her on “read.” In her video, she explained that she went on a Bumble date and soon after, tragedy struck: He stopped texting her. Shanna posted screenshots of her survey that had questions such as, “Why did you ghost Shanna?” and “What could Shanna do to stop getting ghosted?”

    Owning a home had never been something Kristopher Esqueda even thought about. He was a successful restaurateur in San Francisco, helping to open many popular restaurants such as Saison and Sons and Daughters, and every month he turned in a $3,500 rent check for a two-bedroom apartment in the Tenderloin. One day after visiting a friend in Nashville who had moved there from the Bay Area, Esqueda left his apartment, stepping over hypodermic needles and feces on his way to work and started to wonder whether his time in the city was up.

    Scientology and its front organizations (like Narconon and CCHR) live in a world disconnected from reality. They seem oblivious to the absurdity of things they say and positions they take. Narconon is now beginning to sound like prohibitionists, targeting county music for “romanticizing alcohol.” Unfortunately, while contemporary country music stars continue to produce great music year after year, there are increasing incidences of romanticizing alcohol in country music lyrics, romanticizing it, glamorizing it, or even construing alcohol with happy times, carefree adventures, and the ‘good life.’ Given the harm and danger that can come from consuming alcohol, fans of country...
