    House Homeland Security Chair Mark Green (R-Tenn.) announced he will not be seeking a fourth term in Congress. This decision follows his prominent role in leading the impeachment efforts against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Green released a powerful retirement statement criticizing the Washington elites and explaining his decision to retire from Congress. “At the start of the 118th Congress, I promised my constituents to pass legislation to secure our borders and to hold Secretary Mayorkas accountable. Today, with the House having passed H.R. 2 and Secretary Mayorkas impeached, it is time for me to return home....
  • Justice Department Sues Tennessee for Enforcing State Law that Discriminates Against People with HIV

    The Justice Department filed a lawsuit today against the State of Tennessee and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The department previously notified Tennessee and the TBI that they violated the ADA by enforcing the state’s aggravated prostitution statute against people living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). That letter of findings detailed the minimum remedial measures necessary to address the discrimination. The department’s investigation found that the state and TBI subject people living with HIV to harsher criminal penalties solely because of their HIV status, violating Title II of the ADA. Tennessee’s...

    White Tennessee Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen was incensed that Super Bowl fans did not stand in respect for what he called the “Negro National Anthem” during Sunday night’s big game. As it has for the last several championship games, the NFL opened the Super Bowl with the song “Life Every Voice and Sing,” which many agitators have proclaimed to be “the black national anthem.” Of course, it isn’t a “national anthem” at all, but regardless, Congressman Cohen was not happy that the video of fans in the stands showed that not many were standing as R&B singer Andra Day performed...

    Students at East Tennessee State University and others gathered to march in protest of Kyle Rittenhouse on Thursday evening. The protest came just a few hours before the controversial figure spoke at the Brinkley Center for a Turning Point USA event, which is a student-led group on campus. In 2020, a then 17-year-old Rittenhouse shot and killed two men during civil unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. In 2021, Rittenhouse was acquitted of homicide and other charges on the grounds of self-defense. When they announced they were bringing Rittenhouse to ETSU, a Turning Point representative said Rittenhouse would speak about the importance...

    A rookie female corrections officer in Tennessee has been arrested for allegedly having sex with an inmate at the men’s jail. Akira Jones, 20, a corrections deputy with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office in Memphis since May, was taken into custody Tuesday after a weeks-long internal investigation, officials said. Jones, who has been on leave since late December, faces a felony charge of sexual contact with prisoners. The deputy’s arrest stems from a complaint dated Dec. 20, which accused her of having sex with an inmate at the main county jail known colloquially as 201 Poplar. Although the sheriff’s office...

    As elected officials hotly debate new border security legislation, the FBI has arrested a Tennessee man they say was planning to join a militia border group, set off explosives, and act as a sniper at the Mexico/U.S. border. Paul Faye of Cunningham, Tennessee was arrested yesterday for possession of an unregistered firearm, however the charging documents outline a nearly year-long investigation into the defendant involving multiple undercover agents. Faye first came on law enforcement radar after the arrest of Brian Perry, another Tennessee man who was indicted last Spring in a plot to murder immigrants at the border. A review...

    Multiple lanes were blocked on the Memphis-Arkansas I-40 bridge during a pro-Palestinian protest that began at Memphis City Hall on Saturday.

    When K Monica Kelly saw that women in Texas had filed a lawsuit challenging the contours of their state’s abortion ban, she posted on Instagram to cheer them on. “I shared how terrible I thought it was, that they weren’t able to get the proper healthcare they needed in their state,” Kelly said. “It never crossed my mind that that was actually going to happen to me soon.” Kelly and her husband spent a year trying to have a second baby. So when they discovered in February 2023 that Kelly was pregnant, the couple was ecstatic. They taught their son,...

    On Tuesday, a guilty verdict was announced for six pro-life activists for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act at an abortion facility near Nashville, Tenn. The Biden administration’s Justice Department brought the charges, which stemmed from a peaceful protest on March 5, 2021, in which a group of pro-lifers prayed and sang hymns at the entrance to the Carafem Health Center Clinic. Video of the protest shows a group of approximately 20-30 pro-life activists peacefully praying and singing hymns while standing and sitting along the walls of a hallway leading to the door of the abortion...

    Six pro-life Americans face over a decade in prison for allegedly violating a federal law during their abortion protest. The charges against them stemmed from a massive campaign of political persecution the Biden administration brought against pro-life rescuers for protesting abortion inside abortion centers. In 2021, the US Department of Justice charged seven individuals with violating the FACE Act (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances), which stipulates that individuals cannot block the entrance to abortion clinics or prevent individuals from accessing them. An additional four activists were charged with misdemeanor charges. In March, a group of 20 pro-life advocates walked...
