    Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) said Tuesday that the Senate Judiciary Committee should subpoena a former classmate of Brett Kavanaugh as it examines sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee. Jones weighed in shortly after the former classmate, Mark Judge, told committee leaders through his attorney that he won't testify and that he has no recollection about the alleged incident from the early 1980s. "You can count on the fact that that letter, his response, is going to be entered into the record by someone, and that needs to be tested as well," Jones, who is not a member of...

    Its easy to argue that sexual assault allegations are the rage nowadays, a quick way to take out opponents and bring the high and the mighty down. But in politics, the Democrat Party political machine saw how sexual allegations can win a political fight just nine months ago in Alabama. They were able to use the notion of gross sexual misconduct by Republican US Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore to score and upset win for their candidate Doug Jones in a Special Election. Women came forward with various allegations including the notion of sexual assault. So why not use the...

    A group of college students is working together with lawmakers and communities to try to make the route to locations throughout the southeast a little shorter by using Interstate 14 to connect Killeen, Texas, with Columbus, Georgia. The idea started when Frank Lumpkin was in high school, taking part in Youth Leadership Columbus. While taking part in the class, he said he realized that the city needed more infrastructure to succeed, and he said he has been working on the project ever since. “From the moment I saw this robust transportation network that linked the southern military instillations, would address...

    The Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division is looking for information to find the person who shot an arrow through a Red-tailed Hawk.

Most sportsmen make good, ethical choices, and don't like to see when others choose not to," the division said in...

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is moving to set up a Judiciary Committee vote on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, likely next week. Grassley's office on Monday sent out an agenda for a business meeting the committee will have on Thursday. Kavanaugh's nomination is included as one of roughly two dozen judicial nominations that could get a vote. The move means Kavanaugh's nomination could get a vote as soon as this week. But Democrats are expected to delay the vote until next week, meaning Kavanaugh's nomination will likely be taken up by the committee on Sept. 20. Under committee rules, any...

    FULL TITLE: Exclusive – Mo Brooks: Likely 15M Illegal Aliens in U.S., Giving Blue States 20 Additional Congressional Seats Rep.

Brooks, along with the state of Alabama, are suing the federal government for their counting of illegal aliens, rather than citizens, in congressional apportionment and the dividing up of electoral college votes. In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot Channel’s Breitbart News Saturday, Brooks revealed that should the Congress continue...

    Former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) is suing actor and director Sacha Baron Cohen, alleging that he defamed Moore and caused emotional stress to the former judge and his wife by tricking them into appearing on his Showtime program "Who is America?" In a court filing Wednesday, Moore and his wife, Kayla Moore, allege that Cohen's use of a disguise and false pretenses to lure them to Washington, D.C., for a supposed awards ceremony and interview constituted fraud. Cohen went on to "defame" Moore by using a device "supposedly invented by the Israeli Army to detect pedophiles" to label...

    Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett said Saturday on Fox & Friends that he believes Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be fired after the midterm elections. His comments come after a court filing uncovered by Judicial Watch revealed that no FISA court hearings were held regarding warrants to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Jarrett said Saturday that the Supreme Court should get involved in order to prevent future abuses. He said that a show cause hearing should be held to determine why Justice Department and FBI officials involved shouldn't be held in contempt. The Justice Department released...

    It's been painful to listen to many on team MAGA complain about Attorney General Jeff Sessions, accusing him of ineptness and promoting the narrative that he needs to resign. This idiocy has spread to knowledgeable right-leaning media personalities that clearly have no idea what's happening, and don't appreciate the size and scope of what Sessions has been undertaking. The primary focus of Attorney General Sessions is to restore integrity and honor to the Department of Justice. He has been doing an excellent job running a tight ship and keeping details about ongoing investigations confidential. AG Sessions is doing everything to...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is using his legal expertise and his authority to aggressively implement President Donald Trump’s policy against illegal immigration, even as he is getting flak from the President for recusing himself from Democratic-cheered investigations into the President’s campaign and business activities. The next step for Sessions, says source, is the release of federal regulations that will replace the 2015 Flores settlement which requires officials to release migrants within 20 days if they bring children with them over the border.

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Alabama doesn't rebuild. The Crimson Tide simply reload. College Football Playoff hero Tua Tagovailoa threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third in his first college start, helping top-ranked and defending national champions open the season with a 51-14 rout of Louisville on Saturday night. Essentially ending the debate - at least for now - about whether he or Jalen Hurts should be the Crimson Tide's No. 1 quarterback, Tagovailoa scored on a 9-yard run while also completing 12 of 16 passes for 227 yards without an interception. ''I thought there were a lot of things...
