    “Let’s just call a spade a spade. Tennessee is racist. Period,” Lamar said in the video. “Period. Like, Tennessee is racist.” There’s no subtly there… but to ensure clarity she specifically named “white people,” before proceeding to call them stupid. “Most of the Tennesseans who voted Republican are uneducated. So, they don’t even know that they showed up to the polls to vote against their own interest,” she added

    Social Security beneficiaries snared in the largest disability scam in U.S. history won a reprieve last week when the government said it will put off decisions on revoking their benefits until the new year. The reversal by the Social Security Administration comes after the federal government finally took possession of and named receivers for thousands of case files from Eric C. Conn, the lawyer who orchestrated the disability-fraud ring. The files, which had been sitting in Conn’s law office for years, contain evidence that might help the beneficiaries prove they were entitled to benefits the government is now trying to...

    Pop superstar Taylor Swift’s endorsement of Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen failed to persuade the great people of Tennessee on Tuesday. The race was called for Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-07) at around 8:05 pm. She handily defeated her Democratic opponent, former Gov. Phil Bredesen, whom Swift gave a full-throated endorsement....

    FULL TITLE: She Exposed Planned Parenthood’s Aborted Baby Part Sales, Now Marsha Blackburn’s Heading to the Senate Heading to the U.S. Senate is one of America’s strongest political fighters for unborn babies, Marsha Blackburn.

  • Tennessee Senate Stays Red As Marsha Blackburn Fends Off Democrat Phil Bredesen

    11/07/2018 7:20:05 AM PST · by Red Badger · 8 replies ^ | 9:14 PM 11/06/2018 | Hanna Bogorowski
    Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn won her hard-fought battle with former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen to take over retiring GOP Sen. Bob Corker’s seat, keeping the Tennessee Senate red and becoming the first female senator in the state’s history. Blackburn and Bredesen have been embattled in a closely watched race between two very different candidates, one that put a staunchly pro-President Donald Trump conservative against a relatively moderate, well-liked Democrat. While the majority of early polls from March and into the summer suggested a win for Bredesen, the tables turned in the autumn months as Blackburn began to pick up...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood Arch-Enemy Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Race Over Pro-Abortion Candidate Some of the abortion industry’s worst enemies are the women leaders who fight so strongly for the rights of unborn babies. U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee is one of them. And the pro-life Republican leader won her Senate race against pro-abortion Phil Bredesen. U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, who currently holds the seat, is retiring. “I know the left calls me a wing-nut or a knuckle-dragging conservative,” Blackburn said in her announcement video, CNN reports. “And you know what? I say, that’s all right, bring it...

    Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R) declined to tell a reporter Thursday whether he had voted for Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) or her opponent, Phil Bredesen (D) in the race to replace him in the Senate when asked about his vote. Corker has endorsed Blackburn, but his support for the Trump-aligned congresswoman is seen as reluctant amid his own criticism of the Trump administration. "I think you know, so, I’ll leave it at that," he told the Nashville Tennessean on Thursday. Though adding of Blackburn, he reportedly said: "Yeah, I endorsed her early on."

    Voter turnout for Tuesday’s midterm elections may be affected as a potent storm unleashes rain, strong winds and potentially violent thunderstorms from the midwestern to southern United States. According to research, weather influences some voters' response when making a decision to head to the polls. "Weather was found to be, on average, nearly 20 percent of the change in voter turnout based on our analysis," according to AccuWeather Data Scientist and Meteorologist Tim Loftus. "Democrats are more weather sensitive, when compared to Republicans, and among the most weather-sensitive were African-Americans, those 65 and older and 18- to 24-year-olds," he said....

    Democrats in tough Senate races around the country are throwing their party under the bus as they seek to pull out victories in red states won just two years ago by President Trump. In Missouri, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) has a radio ad declaring she’s “not one of those crazy Democrats.” She’s in a razor-tight race against Josh Hawley, the state’s attorney general. In Montana, Sen. Jon Tester (D), whose race against Republican Matt Rosendale has tightened considerably, told The Hill that Democrats “botched” the debate over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. He also criticized Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D)...

    Is blocking truth censorship? Google Ads blocked Tennessee GOP candidate Marsha Blackburn from releasing a campaign ad for Google search users because the “content didn’t meet Google standards.” The 30 second ad titled “Stop the Mob” showed protesters screaming during a moment of silence for the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, and a protester kicking a cameraman. She also had a 15 second ad. According to the Daily Caller, Google Ads, an online advertising platform, would not allow the Tennessee Republican’s campaign for Senate promote two campaign videos as search ads because the content doesn’t meet Google’s standards,...
