  • Hmmm: Mississippi Church That Challenged Shutdown Mysteriously … Explodes

    A Mississippi church at the center of a legal battle over the shutdown exploded and burned to the ground yesterday — and it doesn’t look like a coincidence. The pastor of First Pentecostal in Holly Springs has led protests to allow his congregation to gather once again in defiance of local COVID-19 shutdown orders, including one inside a Walmart to accuse officials of double standards. A local judge had rebuked the church for acting in “an excessively reckless and cavalier manner,” a ruling the church had planned to fight.That fight has been indefinitely postponed, and apparently intentionally, as investigators...

    A federal judge has affirmed the right of a Pentecostal church in Mississippi to worship without fear of being shut down again or threatened by local police, allowing the congregation to hold drive-in services beginning Sunday. In a federal lawsuit filed by the conservative legal group, Thomas More Society, on behalf of the First Pentecostal Church of Holly Springs, U.S. District Judge Michael P. Mills issued the order against the city of Holly Springs, whose officers disrupted and shut down a midweek Bible study, 10 days after disrupting the congregation’s Easter worship service and issuing its pastor, Jerry Waldrop, a...

    The city council of Greenville, Miss. and Greenville Mayor Errick Simmons issued an executive order that banned all in-person church services, effective from April 7 until Missouri Gov. Tate Reeves lifts the state’s stay-at-home order. Fox News reported many churches planned to drive-in services as a means of negotiating the need for social distancing with in-person services, especially during Easter week.

    The lone abortion business in Maryland has been caught defying orders to stop killing babies in abortions under the state mandate to stop all non-essential medical procedures. As LifeNews.com reported, Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves urged the state’s only abortion facility to close and comply with a state order postponing all elective medical procedures due to the coronavirus. According to a new report that has happened. The pro-life Republican governor said abortions should stop in the state, especially during the health crisis. Earlier, the state health department issued an order to stop all elective and unnecessary medical procedures so that medical...

    Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves urged the state’s only abortion facility to close and comply with a state order postponing all elective medical procedures due to the coronavirus. On Tuesday, the pro-life Republican governor said abortions should stop in the state, especially during the health crisis, the Clarion Ledger reports. Earlier, the state health department issued an order to stop all elective and unnecessary medical procedures so that medical resources can be preserved to combat the growing coronavirus pandemic. Reeves said there is nothing necessary about killing unborn babies in abortions, and the Jackson Women’s Health Organization must comply with the...
  • Joe Biden urges Bernie Sanders and his supporters to get behind him as he crushes socialist in Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri and Idaho and ally says 'shut this primary down' - then pivots to slam Donald Trump over coronavirus

    Joe Biden celebrated his crushing victory over Bernie Sanders in Michigan — and in Mississippi, Missouri and Idaho too — by thanking him for running and hinting it was time for him to quit. “I want to thank Bernie Sanders and his supporters for their tireless energy and their passion. We share a common goal and together we’ll defeat Donald Trump — we’ll defeat him together,” Biden said in Philadelphia a little bit before 11 p.m. after his planned rally in Cleveland was canned due to coronavirus fears. Biden pivoted to a general election argument by hitting President Trump over...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden won the Mississippi primary on Tuesday, the latest in his string of victories in the deep south, where black voters have turned out in big numbers to support his campaign. News outlets called the victory for Biden over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) as soon as polls closed. Biden’s final margin of victory is not known yet, but polls showed him up by 50 points heading into Election Day, so he’ll likely win a strong majority of the 36 delegates up for grabs. Sanders cancelled a planned event in Mississippi last week, deciding instead that his...
  • AP VoteCast: Biden edges out Sanders on electability

    Associated Press ^ | March 10, 2020 | Josh Boak and Hannah Fingerhut
    Joe Biden came into Tuesday’s primaries riding a wave of voter confidence about his chances of victory in November. Democratic primary voters in Missouri and Mississippi are more likely to think the former vice president could defeat President Donald Trump in the general election, compared with Biden’s top rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, according to AP VoteCast surveys in the two states. That perception of electability is part of what is drawing Democrats to rally around the more moderate Biden, who has emerged as the Democratic primary front-runner thanks to moderate and conservative voters moving quickly in his direction. The...

    Biden, 77, was welcomed by applause at New Hope Baptist Church in Jackson, where he was accompanied by NAACP national president Derrick Johnson and Rep. Bennie Thompson. . . . During a speech, Biden mentioned former President Barack Obama several times and said the country was at 'an inflection point' that reflected the Civil Rights era more than 50 years ago.

    The Mississippi Republican Party is welcoming some new members and all of them were elected public offices as Democrats or Independents in this most recent election cycle. The Mississippi Republican Party Chairman says he doesn’t expect this will be the last time they are welcoming new members to the GOP. “We have had a relentless focus on switching conservative Democrats over to the Republican party," explained MSGOP Chairman Lucien Smith. "They recognize increasingly that there is only one party that represents the conservative values of our state and that is the Republican party.” All eight of the latest party switchers...

    A Mississippi Democrat introduced a bill in the state House that would force parents who homeschool their children to “provide the same curriculum” as government schools in Grades 9 through 12. While homeschool parents and non-public schools currently have considerable freedom to teach children under their care according to their values, Mississippi House Bill 188would mandate that the same courses on Mississippi History and American Government currently taught in public schools would also be required of homeschool families, as well as private and parochial schools. Introduced by state Rep. John Hines Sr. (D), the bill proposes: The Mississippi History course must provide students...

    As Democratic lawmakers in Virginia chip away at commonwealth residents' firearms rights, one bill in a Southern state seeks to undo the damage and form a pro-Second Amendment bulwark across the south. Mississippi House Bill 753, sponsored by seven Republicans in the state Legislature, was introduced Monday. The bill aims to establish an interstate compact to circumvent certain federal gun laws by establishing a regional power dedicated to the defense of the Second Amendment. Part of the legislation's intended purpose is to exempt certain firearms, accessories and ammunition from overreaching federal regulation. The bill doesn't stop there, promising to "declare...

    One big story after the first two Democratic primary elections is the fast fade of former Vice President Joe Biden, who came in fourth in Iowa and a dismal fifth in New Hampshire. But one other prominent candidate is quickly losing altitude as well: Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Last fall, Warren was more popular than Bernie Sanders and a solid second behind Biden. Her rallies drew thousands and her plans for everything forced competing candidates to plan up. But Warren landed third in Iowa and fourth in New Hampshire, a particularly lousy showing given that she’s from the neighboring state of...

    Flash flood emergency in Mississippi, dam in 'imminent danger' of failing By Travis Fedschun Authorities in Mississippi urged residents to evacuate in the northern part of the state Tuesday after heavy rains spawned a flash-flood emergency and put a dam at "imminent" risk of failing. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood emergency in the Jackson metro area and urged residents to seek higher ground after heavy rains created a "life-threatening situation." "Local officials have reported multiple swift water rescues ongoing or needed in the Downtown Jackson area," the NWS tweeted. "More rain is expected!" A flash flood emergency...
