    A group of Senate Republicans attempted to overcome Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s (R-Ala.) blockade of more than 370 military nominations, marking the first time GOP members have attempted a maneuver of this kind. Led by Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), Senate Republicans sought to move numerous promotions for military officers but were blocked by Tuberville as part of his holds that have lasted nearly eight months over the Pentagon’s year-old policy that covers travel expenses for military personnel who travel for abortion care. “America needs to have our best players, most combat-capable leaders, on the field. And right now, that’s not happening....

    Former CIA Director and retired Gen. Michael Hayden seemed to call for the death of Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) Monday night.Quoting a Twitter post that asked, "Should Tommy Tuberville be removed from his committee? Yes or No?" Hayden wrote, "How about the human race?"Tuberville has been bullied by Senate Democrats and know-nothing pundits since last December over his opposition to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin's creation of an "abortion tourism benefit." As Streiff explained:In July 2022, Lloyd Austin declared that the Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs vs. Jackon Women's Health adversely impacted military readiness because if pregnant members of the...

    John Kirby, the Coordinator for Strategic Communications at the White House National Security Council, lost his temper Tuesday when asked why the Pentagon refuses to drop a policy of paying for troops to travel for abortions. Owen Jensen, the White House corespondent for the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), a Catholic outlet, asked Kirby during a press briefing about Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) committing to keep blocking promotions at the Pentagon until the Department of Defense drops its controversial new policy to fund travel for female service members who are stationed in states where abortion is restricted so that they...

    WASHINGTON — Air Force Gen. CQ Brown, president Joe Biden’s nominee to serve as the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, warned today that Alabama Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s high-profile blockade of military appointments will force the US military to “lose talent.” Speaking before the Senate Armed Services Committee during his confirmation hearing for his impending role, Brown said in response to questions from Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., that officials are “working to mitigate the challenges associated with the holds,” on hundreds of military nominations, highlighting impacts on readiness, leadership transitions and military families. Brown also underscored concerns...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) heaped criticism on Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) on Tuesday for saying a night earlier that the definition of “white nationalist” comes down to one’s “opinion.” “The Senator from Alabama is wrong, wrong, wrong,” Schumer said Tuesday. “The definition of white nationalism is not a matter of opinion.” “For the Senator from Alabama to obscure the racist nature of white nationalism is indeed very, very dangerous,” Schumer continued. “He is fanning the flames of bigotry and intolerance.”

    Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville on Tuesday said, simply and for the first time, that "white nationalists are racists." That remark to reporters marked a reversal from days of controversial comments to the contrary, which had drawn criticism from Democratic leaders and head-scratching from some of Tuberville's Republican colleagues. Earlier on Tuesday, the senator told ABC News that white nationalists shouldn't all be labeled as "racist" while also insisting he opposes racism. Tuberville, a former college football coach first elected in 2020, had been pressed on his stance by ABC's Senior Congressional Correspondent Rachel Scott, who asked him, "Can you explain...

    The Department of Defense released a series of new policies in February that allow for time off and travel expenses for reproductive healthcare, including abortion , for troops and their dependents in states where it is not available. The new policies were designed to improve troops’ access to reproductive healthcare after the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization last year, which eliminated the constitutional right to abortion, creating a patchwork of laws across the country. In protest of the new policies, one Republican senator has single-handedly held up roughly 250 promotions for all civilian, flag, and...

    Drag performances took place on board the USS Ronald Reagan under the command of a Navy captain whose promotion to rear admiral is currently being blocked by Republican Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville. Capt. Michael Donnelly served as commanding officer of the aircraft carrier the USS Ronald Reagan from April 2016 to September 2018. During that time period, Yeoman 2rd Class Joshua Kelley was performing as a drag queen at Morale, Welfare, and Recreation department-sanctioned events on the carrier under the drag name “Harpy Daniels.” As commander of the USS Ronald Reagan, Donnelly would have been aware of, and responsible for,...

Bill Hagerty (R-TN), who backed Trump over the weekend, Blackburn lauded Trump's achievements on the economy and border on Monday, framing his election to a second term as the solution to stubbornly high inflation and the influx of illegal immigrants into the United States. She is the ninth senator to back Trump.

    Republicans and Democrats clashed on the Senate floor over Sen. Tommy Tuberville's (R-AL) move to block Pentagon promotions. The Alabama senator is protesting the abortion access policy of the Department of Defense, which he says turns the military into an “abortion travel agency.” While Sens. Jack Reed (D-RI), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), and Michael Bennet (D-CO) joined the chorus of Democrats opposing the bill, Tuberville was joined in support by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). Tuberville argued that his move was not unprecedented as Schumer and the Democrats had claimed, and he pointed to several previous examples of his tactic being used...

There is no more drilling,” Biden snapped at a young woman in the crowd. “I haven’t formed any new drilling.” “There are at least five more years of offshore drilling,” the woman shouted back. “— in the Atlantic or the Pacific but in the Antarctic and off the gulf of New Mexico.” “That was before I was president,” Biden responded. “We’re trying to work on that...

    Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R) took to the nationally syndicated "Rick & Bubba Show" to commemorate the upcoming 50th anniversary of Title IX, which he credits for the expansion of female sports at the grade school through collegiate levels. Alabama's junior U.S. Senator warned the Biden administration was poised to water down Title IX in the name of promoting transgender athletes, which he argued would be detrimental to women's sports. However, Tuberville also said the NCAA, the governing body of collegiate sports, could show leadership in preserving Title IX as it is currently constituted, but will not.
  • Yellen Backs Down on IRS Snooping on Americans’ Bank Accounts

    Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen has relented in response to backlash over a controversial proposal by Democrats that would have allowed the IRS to gain information from any American bank account with more than $600 of activity in a year. The measure initially came to light as a part of Democrats’ $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill. Trying to head off concerns from moderates, Democratic leaders and rank-and-file lawmakers have desperately marketed the bill as being completely paid for with no substantial effect on the deficit or national debt. One proposal to achieve that end was the IRS measure. Despite immediate...

    A fired-up Sen. Cory Booker praised GOP Sen. Tommy Tuberville for forcing a vote Tuesday in the Senate on defunding the police, saying he wanted to "hug" his GOP colleague for putting to rest "scurrilous" accusations that Senate Democrats want to strip law enforcement of money. Tuberville, R-Ala., authored an amendment to Democrats' $3.5 trillion budget resolution that would decrease federal funds to localities that defund the police. In teeing up the politically charged vote, Tuberville said in a floor speech that "opposing my amendment is a vote in support of defunding the police and against the men and women...
  • Exclusive — Sen. Tommy Tuberville: ‘Fort Pelosi’ Provides ‘Black SUVs with Secret Service’ to Democratic Congressmen,’ not Republicans

    Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) said Democrat representatives, not Republicans, are being provided Secret Service protection per Nancy Pelosi’s directives. Tuberville contrasted Washington, DC’s, reaction to unrest on January 6 with dozens of violent and destructive leftist-driven riots in large American cities in 2020. “This is all coming from the other end of the Capitol building, which is the House, Fort Pelosi,” Tuberville remarked. “Nancy Pelosi is in charge of all this. She was in charge of it when it all happened. The chief of police and sergeant-at-arms resigned, and Pelosi should have been right behind them, because she should have...

    Several states were stolen from President Trump in his landslide 2020 election. Democrats and the media claim it is perfectly normal to lock out GOP observers while you manufacture tens of thousands of votes to overcome a massive Trump win. Trump supporters disagree. But Mitch McConnell does not stand for President Trump and he does not stand with Trump’s voters. Mitch stands with the globalists and the Democrats and he is reportedly reaching out to Tommy Tuberville to warn him about creating a messy situation next week. Wow!
