    The link between unemployment and suicides will be a concern that has to be addressed while the majority of the population stays-in to duck the coronavirus pandemic Even a pandemic can’t shock the media out of its blinding hostility to President Trump — witness this week’s absurd press eruption after he warned of a likely rise in suicides. “People get tremendous anxiety and depression, and you have suicides over things like this when you have terrible economies,” Trump noted at a briefing, adding that he believes the isolation many Americans face thanks to social distancing will also lead to more...

    A Tennessee woman was recently diagnosed with the Chinese coronavirus after she ignored Nashville officials’ instructions to practice social distancing. A few days before she tested positive for the disease, 21-year-old Ireland Tate told her social media followers she was aware of the potential risks but chose not to follow the guidelines, according to Fox 17. “So, I’m aware that we’re supposed to be like self-quarantining and like, social distancing and all these things to like, keep everyone safe. I get it. Cool. Great,” she said in a video posted online. “I just don’t think that I’m going to get...

    Gov. Andy Beshear is telling Kentuckians not to travel to Tennessee, a state he said has not taken the same “aggressive” steps as Kentucky in preventing the spread of COVID-19. “I cannot control that Tennessee has not taken the steps that we have,” Beshear said. “I need you to not go to Tennessee for anything other than work, or helping a loved one, or maybe to the grocery.” Beshear said Kentuckians on the southern border who travel into Tennessee to visit bars, restaurants or other types of establishments that are closed in Kentucky, risk bringing the virus back into the...

    Add Tennessee to the list of states where the governor has made it clear that abortion businesses must stop kiling babies in abortions because abortions are not “essential” medical care. On Monday, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee issued an order for all medical facilities to stop any non-essential medical care in order to preserve medical supplies to fight the coronavirus. Today, the governor said that order applies to abortion centers “The executive order was certainly crafted in order to provide [personal protective equipment] for health care” professionals involved in the coronavirus response, as well as ensure resources were available for those...

    Before you look up my account and call me a noob I have been here since Clinton was President, just under a different user name. I haven't posted in a week or so, I've just been reading and lurking. It has really been an awakening recently to say the least. I am surprised and maybe even a little shocked by my fellow Freepers. I really kind of thought we were all kind-of like minded (ya, I know, conservatives). We have the "FluBro's" who are in total denial of what is happening world-wide. It reminds me of the other party and...

Sure did,” Tasha Lott told WHBQ. “Got them gloves. Sure did.” Some parents and family members took more extreme measures. Annie Jones wore plastic bags from her head...

    If racism is so rampant in America, why is it that time and time again people must resort to staging fake hate crimes to expose it? A growing problem, fake hate crimes are quick to be downplayed by the media, but these episodes reached a pinnacle with disgraced actor Jussie Smollet, whose name has become a verb to describe such incidents. Smollet has plenty of company, as seen in Johnson City, Tenn., where a black woman was arrested for scraping the words “white pride” into the sidewalk in front of a local gym owned by a black man.

    The Parental Oversight of Public Libraries Act, sponsored by state Sen. Paul Bailey and state Rep. Andy Holt, would establish a five-member review board for each public library to determine “whether any sexual material provided to the public by the public library is age-inappropriate sexual material.” Voters would elect the members. The board would hold public hearings, during which time “members of the community may present concerns to the board,” according to the bill’s text. The bill is HB 2721 in the House and SB2896 in the Senate. Holt said it would provide local control on controversial issues. “There haven’t...

If they have a problem with me or what I say in this video, they are more than welcome to come to Valor Ridge and meet me and I can show them just how incompetent, unskilled, and ignorant they are when it comes to firearms via some simple marksmanship tests and tasks. But I doubt they have the courage or motivation to truly see what they really are. 5 minute video

    On 27 February, 2020, at 1 p.m., Governor Bill Lee announced he is proposing Constitutional Carry for Tennessee in 2020. Tennessee has been a prime candidate to join the growing number of states with Constitutional Carry. Currently 16 states have Constitutional Carry of varying degrees. Constitutional Carry is an approximation of the state of law and the Second Amendment at the time of the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791. At that time there were no laws restricting the carry of weapons, openly or concealed.Concealed weapons were common in the early republic, from knives and sword canes to...

No business cards, no contractors license,' her husband Philip Hungate told 'My wife called me at work in a panic saying there were guys on the roof and they were tearing things off.'

    NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Nashville is hemorrhaging police officers at a time when more are needed than ever before. That’s according to the union president who says the problem has become a major public safety concern. “Even if we were fully staffed today, we would not have enough officers,” said fraternal order of police president James Smallwood. 42 officers recently graduated from Nashville’s police academy. In a few months, the graduates will be out on the streets, risking their lives, to keep the city safe. “I’m just proud to be doing the job I’m going to be doing,” said officer...

    SUBTITLE: Lawmakers in Missouri and Tennessee have introduced bills that could put librarians in prison for hosting Drag Queen Story Hour events at public libraries. On Monday afternoon, nearly 100 kindergarten students crowded into the Tompkins Square Library in New York City’s trendy East Village neighborhood as two glamorous drag queens read them children’s books during a Drag Queen Story Hour event. Jackie Cox and Jan — two contestants from the upcoming season of VH1’s hit show “RuPaul’s Drag Race” — fielded questions such as “Are you a boy or a girl?” and “Why does your voice sound like that?”...
