    As 2020 wound to a close, pundits noted the growing toll of leftist policies on residents of blue states, prompting migration from California, New York, New Jersey, and Illinois to Republican-run states such as Texas and Florida, which offer lower taxes and a better business climate. In addition to losing Oracle, Charles Schwab, Hewlett Packard, and Elon Musk, for the first time in its history California is expected to lose a congressional seat in the upcoming decennial census allocation, due to stagnating population. Texas is expected to gain three seats, and Florida is expected to pick up two. Blue states...

    A Tennessee high school principal is on administrative leave after he told students they should be alarmed by the recent crackdown on free speech on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Barton Thorne, the principal of Cordova High School, told students during morning announcements that they needed to be aware of the censorship happening on social media. “I’m not going to tell you what to think, I just want to help you think,” he told students on a video that was later posted on YouTube. “This isn’t about Trump,” he said. “This is about speech.” Principal Thorne asked the...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced Sunday his support for efforts to challenge the certification by Congress of the electoral college votes on January 6. McCarthy’s remarks came during a discussion with the Hill, in which he stated a “debate” on the issue is needed. “I think it’s right that we have the debate,” McCarthy said. “I mean, you see now that senators are going to object, the House is going to object — how else do we have a way to change the election problems?” Several other members of Congress have previously announced they will object to the certification...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A man who knew Christmas bomber Anthony Warner got a disturbing surprise in his mailbox on New Year's Day when he received a package from the bomber. The non-descript package was postmarked December 23rd, two days before investigators say Warner killed himself in the bombing. Sources tell NewsChannel 5 Investigates that Warner mailed similar packages to other individuals. The package, which contained at least nine typed pages and two Samsung thumb drives, was immediately turned over to the FBI. The envelope does not have a return address, but the rambling pages inside left no doubt it...

    While most of us prepare to welcome in the New Year, the FBI and local law enforcement agents in Nashville, Tennessee are still trying to piece together the story of Anthony Warner and how he wound up blowing himself up, along with most of a city block, on Christmas morning. One of the potentially key individuals who has been mentioned repeatedly in the early days of the investigation is a “mystery woman” from California to whom Warner transferred the deeds for two properties in the past couple of years. Her name is Michelle Swing and she’s an executive in the...

    Authorities are looking into evidence that Nashville RV bomber Anthony Quinn Warner spent time hunting for aliens and was interested in “lizard people,” ABC News reported. Law enforcement sources told the outlet that investigators found some of Warner’s writings containing ramblings about various conspiracy theories. Some of the notes were reportedly about the lizard or reptilian conspiracy — the idea that shape-shifting lizard creatures take on human form in an attempt at world domination. Authorities believe the 63-year-old loner also spent time hunting for alien life forms in a nearby state park, the outlet reported. It’s unclear if any of...

    Nashville RV bomber Anthony Quinn Warner was a weed-loving flower child with a “‘Magnum, P.I.’ mustache” - who hated cops, a former co-worker has claimed. “He was kind of a hippie. Had long hair,” Tom Lundborg told the Daily Beast of his years-long daily dealings with the Christmas Day suicide bomber starting in the 1970s. Lundborg - who was a teenager when he first met the then-20-something Warner - said he “kind of looked up to him” as they worked in Antioch, a suburb of Nashville where Warner stayed until his death. “He was a smart, cocky kind of guy....

    As you may have heard, we’ve sort of got a "casedemic" problem here in Tennessee. That means lots and lots (and lots) of people are testing positive for COVID-19. That’s about all we know for sure, of course. Nevertheless, hand-wringing from media, politicians, and local ‘health authorities’ is seemingly neverending, as are local reporters in my neck of the woods being filmed standing in front of that FEMA body truck they don’t bother to tell us has been sitting in front of the regional hospital, unused, SINCE MARCH. Hospitals aren’t overwhelmed by any measure, and even the death toll isn’t...

    Officials have no information about whether anyone was inside the RV when it exploded. Police also tweeted a photo of the RV as it was driven into the area at 1:22 a.m. Friday. As the investigation continues, officials will meticulously search the area for any trace of physical evidence, according to Andrew McCabe, a CNN law enforcement analyst and former FBI deputy director. Essential pieces of evidence, however, could be scattered across a large scene, given the size of the blast. The most important question to answer at this time is who was behind the blast, McCabe said. "We need...

    Jon Ossoff “may be a security risk,” according to Sen-elect Bill Hagerty (R-TENN). Hagerty, former US Ambassador to Japan, told Breitbart he made the assessment after learning Ossoff's film company made money off a company tied to the CCP. He is “certainly not an acceptable choice for senator.” In a July financial disclosure, Ossoff admitted that his 2013 investment in Insight TWI, made more than $5,000 in two years from the Hong Kong-based telecoms firm PCCW, a subsidiary of China Unicom, w/ close ties to the CCP. “China has proven it will brazenly leverage any relationship to gain influence in...
