    WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate opponents of President Donald Trump's declaration of a national emergency at the Mexican border moved within a hair Thursday of having enough votes to prevail, and one Republican suggested he risks a rebuff by the GOP-led chamber if he doesn't change course. Trump's move would "turn a border crisis into a constitutional crisis," veteran Sen. Lamar Alexander said on the Senate floor. But he stopped just short of saying he'd support a resolution blocking the president's move. Had Alexander pledged his vote, it would probably be enough for the Senate to pass a measure repealing the...

    Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) announced Monday he will not seek re-election in 2020. .... “I will not be a candidate for re-election to the United States Senate in 2020,” Alexander said in a statement. “The people of Tennessee have been very generous, electing me to serve more combined years as Governor and Senator than anyone else from our state. I am deeply grateful, but now it is time for someone else to have that privilege. I have gotten up every day thinking that I could help make our state and country a little better, and gone to bed most nights...

    In the wake of recent reports that Bull star Michael Weatherly made lewd comments to co-star Eliza Dushku on set, two of Weatherly’s former NCIS castmates are coming to his defense. According to a Dec. 13 report by The New York Times, Dushku was poised to become a series regular on Bull after joining the CBS drama late in Season 1 as defense attorney J.P. Nunnelly. But Dushku said that Weatherly repeatedly made demeaning and crude comments about her during her time on the show, and when she lodged a formal complaint with the network, she was written off the...

    White Double FOUR HUNDRED YEARS had scarcely elapsed since the glorious death of Eleutherius, when a second Apostle of Britain ascended from this world, and on this same day, to the abode of eternal bliss. We cannot but be struck by the fact that the names of our two Apostles appear on the Calendar together: it shows us that God has his own special reasons in fixing the day for the death of each one among us. We have more than once noticed these providential coincidences, which form one of the chief characteristics of the Liturgical Cycle. What a...

Let us honor this venerable witness of the Faith, who is now receiving the devout homage of the Church Militant, he who, for these long ages past, has been enjoying in heaven the company of our Risen Jesus. The Passion of his Divine Master was ever present to his mind while here on earth; and the Church has registered in her annals his adding four...

    GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander told CNBC that he will vote again for an amnesty, even though his vote for the Democratic-led 2013 amnesty bill helped demolish his establishment GOP peers during the 2016 primaries and election. “We need a legal immigration system, and we need to put that behind us,” he told CNBC’s John Harwood. “We tried to do it in 2013; I voted for it. It would’ve solved many of the problems … I would vote for it again.”

    A week after an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he’d consider a bipartisan effort to continue payments to insurers to avert a costly rattling of health insurance markets. McConnell told reporters Saturday there is “still a chance” the Senate could revive the measure to repeal and replace “Obamacare,” but he acknowledged the window for that is rapidly closing. The Kentucky senator noted Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee is working on “some kind of bipartisan approach” that would involve subsidies for insurance companies. Alexander recently said he will work with the...

    As some Republicans struggle with justifying their support for Donald Trump after a series of controversies — including his recent attack on an American-born judge for his “Mexican heritage” and a doubling down on his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. — the two Republican senators from Tennessee aren't lending their overt support. Sen. Lamar Alexander isn't calling Trump the GOP nominee just yet, as reported by an Associated Press reporter. When his office was asked about the comments, Communications Director Jim Jeffries confirmed them and said, “Republicans officially choose our nominee in July. Sen. Alexander...

The choice to remove him for a yet-to-be-named woman while a genocidal, Democrat bigot who defied a Supreme Court ruling to tickle his “relocation” fetish remains on the $20 is insulting.

    A Michigan abortion practitioner who botched an abortion on a woman in her second trimester and left her decapitated unborn baby inside her has had his medical license suspended. Robert Alexander’s abortion clinic was shut down in December 2013 by the city of Muskegon, Michigan after unsafe and unsanitary conditions were found. But that wasn’t the only issue. “Dr. Alexander perforated the woman’s uterus so badly that it was hanging on by two blood vessels,” another physician said in testimony about what happened in the late-term abortion. “The decapitated head of a fetus was in the woman’s abdomen and the...

    Archaeologists in northern Greece have found a skeleton inside a tomb from the time of Alexander the Great, during a dig that has enthralled the public. The burial site at Amphipolis is the largest ever discovered in Greece. The culture ministry said the almost intact skeleton belonged to a "distinguished public figure", given the tomb's dimensions and lavishness. Chief archaeologist Katerina Peristeri said "the tomb in all probability belongs to a male and a general". The excavation has fascinated Greeks ever since Prime Minister Antonis Samaras visited the site in August 2014 and announced it amounted to "an exceptionally important...

    Speculation about who the mysterious ancient tomb recently unearthed in Greece belongs to continues, with one academic now suggesting Alexander the Great’s mother was buried there. A number of scholars believe that the presence of female figures, known as caryatids, show that the tomb in the Amphipolis region of Serres belongs to a female. However, one expert has gone as far as to state that he believes that archaeologists could eventually discover the remains of Alexander the Great's parent, Olympias, inside. Writer Andrew Chugg, who has published a book on the search for the legendary leader's tomb, as well as...

    Patriots, it is frustrating and painful when a good" man of the people" candidate like Joe Carr loses to a lying Washington machine "betrayer of the people" like Lamar Alexander. The fact that Lamar Alexander voted for Obama's agenda 62% of the time is all you need to know about him. My Conservative Campaign Committee team and I were boots on the ground in Tennessee, driving all over the state participating in rallies and other events for Joe Carr. We felt the pulse of the people and there was excitement and enthusiasm for Joe. At one of the Joe Carr...

    Conservative activists are pouring every last resource into Tennessee in hopes of pulling another stunning Republican primary upset, this time in Thursday’s U.S. Senate racing pitting longtime Washington insider Lamar Alexander against tea-party upstart Joe Carr. The defeat of Rep. Eric Cantor, the House majority leader, in Virginia’s Republican primary energized the conservative base in Tennessee, providing hope that perhaps Alexander could also be ripe for the picking. While Alexander has enjoyed a healthy lead in the polls and has a huge spending advantage, his support is considered more “soft” than Carr’s and therefore more likely to stay home on...

    Political commentator and author Michelle Malkin sharply criticized Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) for his attempts to paint himself as an opponent of amnesty and Common Core. “Of course, [Alexander] is one of the biggest double-talking weasels and beltway barnacles out there, particularly on ... immigration and Common Core,” Malkin said on Monday’s “Laura Ingraham Show.” SNIP "And this is somebody, particularly on immigration, who has been an enabler for so long." She also accused Alexander of not being serious on immigration and just using political “talking points” to gain re-election. Malkin concluded that Alexander was “as radical as they come,”...

    Alexander dodges question, says he voted for amnesty to “stop perpetual amnesty” When Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) made a campaign stop at the Brainerd Road Rib & Loin Tuesday evening, he was met with a group of his primary opponent Joe Carr’s supporters who said they showed up to ask him about his vote for amnesty last year. Though Alexander dodged the question in his private campaign event, he told a reporter afterward that he didn’t vote for amnesty, he voted to “stop perpetual amnesty.” While Alexander faces six challengers in August, his strongest is State Representative Joe Carr, who...

    Calling someone the “queen of the tea party,” may be an odd appellation for a movement that has no leaders. Sarah Palin was regarded by some as the “queen of the tea party.” Conservatives immediately rallied around her in 2008, when John McCain tapped her to be the vice presidential nominee. She remained popular, but her role with the tea party exploded after the First Tea Party Convention in Nashville in 2010. In 2010, Palin held court and made appearances and endorsements. Those endorsements turned out to be very valuable to candidates in 2010. In 2012, she lost a bit...
