    FULL TITLE: Arizona Dem Kyrsten Sinema joins GOP in push for program that would quickly deport migrants without valid asylum claims Freshman Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., was one of a number of Democrats to join Republican colleagues this week who called for the implementation of a pilot program that would work to quickly identify and deport migrants at the border who are judged not to have a valid asylum claim. Sinema, along with Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Doug Jones, D-Ala., joined Republicans in writing to President Trump urging the implementation of Operation Safe Return -- a Department of Homeland...

    On Thursday, another decades-old quote of Bidens surfaced courtesy of the Trump campaigns opposition research team Since entering the presidential race, former Vice President Joe Biden has faced repeated questions about past statements hes made criticizing school busing, fondly remembering racist white senators, and helping pass draconian laws in the ill-conceived drug war. On Thursday, another decades-old quote of Bidens surfaced courtesy of the Trump campaigns opposition research team. A September 20, 1987, story in the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Biden had bragged about receiving an award from George Wallace, the former Alabama governor and one of Americas most notorious segregationists....

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said recently he opposes paying government reparations to the descendants of American slaves, has a family history deeply entwined in the issue: Two of his great-great-grandfathers were slave owners, U.S. census records show. The two great-great-grandfathers, James McConnell and Richard Daley, owned a total of at least 14 slaves in Limestone County, Alabama all but two of them female, according to the county Slave Schedules in the 1850 and 1860 censuses. The details about McConnells ancestors, discovered by NBC News through a search of ancestry and census records, came in the wake of...

    On the 4th of July, Hugh Culverhouse, Jr. is calling for people to sing God Bless America, not whistle Dixie in a paid advertisement in the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday. Culverhouse submitted the ad in an attack on Alabamas recent abortion ban. In enacting this law, Alabama is treating women as possessions rather than equal citizens with the inalienable right to control their bodies, he wrote. In the letter, Culverhouse calls for, Americans to fight back and join me in opposing this unconstitutional and immoral law by all means possible. Parents should not send their children to any school,...
  • Marshae Jones might not be prosecuted in unborn babys death, prosecutors say

    Jefferson County prosecutors say they have not yet made a decision whether they will prosecute the woman who is charged in the death of her unborn born child after the woman was shot during a fight. Marshae Jones, 27, was indicted by a Jefferson County Bessemer Cutoff grand jury in April and arrested this week on a felony manslaughter charge. Jones was five months pregnant when lawmen say she initiated a fight with another woman in December 2018. That woman, Ebony Jemison, shot Jones, who was five months pregnant at the time. The fetus did not survive.

    As you read last evening, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi abandoned her foolish fight over the border crisis relief bill, "reluctantly" agreeing to approve the Senate's bipartisan legislation.  House Democrats had been playing games over President Trump's (New York Times-endorsed) $4.5 billion supplemental budget request for humanitarian aid and logistical support at the Souther border, stripping it out of previous legislation before finally passing a partisan and landmine-filled version of their own earlier this week.  The upper chamber, meanwhile, hammered out a reasonable compromise, which was supported by the president.  Mitch McConnell put the House-passed bill on the floor for an...

    Well, they've gone and done it. The House Oversight and Reform Committee voted to authorize a subpoena for White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway to testify about her potential Hatch Act violations. The panel says that Conway engaged in "egregious, repeated, and very public violations” of the ethics law. "Here, we have a clear-cut case of a federal employee violating federal law over and over and over again,”  Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) alleged on Wednesday after the panel's vote.Conway knows what's going on. The Democrats on the panel, she said earlier this week, want to silence her."They want a big roll of...

    A Southern Alabama Ford dealership is raising some eyebrows with its latest promotion in honor of Independence Day. They are giving away a shotgun, a bible and an American flag with every new and used car purchase. The automaker told the dealership late Wednesday that the promotion was inappropriate after three people died Tuesday evening during a mass shooting at a California Ford dealership. There, a man who had been fired from his job at the dealership in the San Francisco Bay Area fatally shot two employees, then himself, according to local media reports. The offer drew hundreds of calls...

    In an interview with the Des Moines Register, New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand suggested that opposition to abortion is akin to racism. Gillibrand, who continues to linger near the very bottom of the pack of Democrats running for the 2020 presidential nomination, has stated that she plans to impose a litmus test on all of her judicial nominees, should she be elected. When asked whether that choice would threaten judicial independence, heres how Gillibrand replied: I think theres some issues that have such moral clarity that we have as a society decided that the other side is not acceptable.

    It was a stunning admission for a hardcore abortion backer to make. Kirsten Gillibrand has described abortion as a "life and death" decision that women should have the right to make. Gillibrand, the junior senator from New York, and a presidential candidate who is barely registering in the polls, made her astonishing recognition of what abortion is really about on today's Face the Nation. Gillibrand thus implicitly acknowledges that there is a human "life" at stake in abortion. Yet she wants to give women the virtually unfettered power to choose "death Get the rest of the story and view the...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Thursday during a sit-down with abortion rights advocates at the Georgia Statehouse that laws prohibiting or limiting abortion rights are "against Christian faith." "If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenets of our faith is free will," Gillibrand said at a press conference, according to CBS News. "One of the tenets of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people," the Democratic presidential candidate added. "And I think this is an...

    A large primary field may fragment the vote, making it unlikely that a candidate could win a majority and avoid a runoff and making it easier for Moore to advance to a runoff with only the support of his base. The point is that Moore does have a path especially a path to a primary runoff if theres a crowded GOP field. And if he does get there, he would be only one step away from a rematch with Jones. Moore would still have a decent chance of winning a general election in conservative Alabama, and that is surely...
