    Despite election wins that shifted control, it could be difficult NASHVILLE - The 106th General Assembly convenes this week with Republicans controlling both the House and Senate for the first time in 140 years and the state facing the biggest financial shortfall in all of Tennessee history. The session, which officially begins at noon Tuesday, will be devoted largely to Republican moves to transform the election victories that provided the party a shaky 50-49 majority in the House and solid 19-14 advantage in the Senate into governing power. They may have some problems in the process. The state faces an...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — The Republican candidate in North Carolina's 11th congressional district said Monday he is resuming his bid for office after a brief, self-imposed suspension of his campaign because of frustrations with his own party. Carl Mumpower, an Asheville city councilman and psychologist, announced last week he was freezing his bid for the post currently held by Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler because he said he was frustrated with the Republican Party and its elected officials. He said he would resume his bid once at least eight county GOP parties in the 15 counties that make up the western North...

    Mumpower Misunderstands FISA Issues, Misquotes Ben Franklin Carl Mumpower, Republican candidate for Congress from the 11th District, has put out a press release saying that the efforts in the US House to extend the FISA Act “demonstrate sharp differences between him and the other candidates.” He is right, but has the wrong conclusion, based on a gross misunderstanding of the subject. FISA stands for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The ACLU (the American Civil Liberties Union) is using American civil courts in an effort to gut-shoot the government’s efforts to stay ahead of the terrorists seeking to kill Americans in America....

    Mumpower Accuses Shuler, Armor, and Campbell of Pandering on FISA 11th District Republican Congressional candidate Carl Mumpower has taken the offensive in challenging candidates Heath Shuler, John Armor, and Spence Campbell for their shared position in support of FISA immunity and the warrantless wiretapping of American Citizens. "The speed with which my colleagues bunched together speaks either to a clear disregard for the United States Constitution or the need to pander to voters' fears," said Mumpower. "In either case, we have a trio of strange bedfellows - unified behind a bill that dodges the real problems, supports big-government, and tramples...

    Carl Mumpower, a Republican candidate for Congress, has broken ranks with his party and opposes legislation to protect telecommunications companies that helped in the government's warrantless spying program. "Bad things grow in the dark and government at all levels is trying to turn out the lights," he said. Congress passed the Protect America Act, which was signed by President Bush, expanding the ability of the Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation to get wiretaps without the approval of the courts. The law expired and Congress and Bush have battled over a new version of the bill, called the...
