    Chattanooga Times Free Press ^ | May 22nd, 2018 | Staff report
    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has been asked to look into an incident where a Bradley County SWAT team burst into the wrong house while searching for a homicide suspect. Steve Crump, district attorney in the 10th Judicial District, said he asked the state agency to look into the incident. A spokesman for the Bradley County Sheriff's Office was tight-lipped Tuesday afternoon, not mentioning the error in a news release to the Times Free Press. "Earlier this morning, the Bradley County Sheriff's Office assisted a federal agency with executing a federal search warrant which led to the arrest of a...

    Why are conservatives so passive about YouTube and Facebook deleting people's accounts? It's actually NOT Facebook's freedom of speech or freedom of association. Your videos, photos or commentary are NOT Facebook's or YouTube's speech. If they were, God only knows how many life sentences Zuckerberg would be serving. They have both legally disavowed by default any responsibility for anything expressed on their services. They are YOUR speech. Facebook and Alphabet LICENSED to use your speech, under whatever terms you agree to. But ownership includes responsibility, and they do not have ownership of them. Deleting an account is like a landlord...

    Democratic Senate President Stan Rosenberg said Thursday he was taking seriously a report that his husband sexually assaulted and harassed several men, including some with business before the Legislature. The Boston Globe reported it spoke with four men who said Bryon Hefner sexually assaulted and harassed them over the past few years. Three of the men told the Globe that Hefner grabbed their genitals and one said Hefner kissed him against his will. The Globe said it found no evidence Rosenberg knew about the alleged assaults. Hefner said in a statement to the Globe through his lawyer that he was...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” network contributor and Republican strategist Karl Rove discussed President Donald Trump criticism of NFL players for taking a knee during the national anthem at games. According to Rove, Trump would be “walking away” from this controversy a “loser.” ... “He could have come away from this the winner,” he continued. “But he is walking away from this a loser in the minds of the American people for exactly the reasons you pointed out. He was against the federal government interfering and telling the Washington Redskins what their name should be. Now he...

    ational security adviser H.R. McMaster has reportedly determined that Susan Rice, who served in his role during the Obama administration, did not do anything wrong amid accusations of “unmasking” the identities of Trump associates. Republican lawmakers are trying to conclude whether or not Rice “unmasked” the identities of Trump transition team members that were redacted in intelligence reports. Bloomberg on Thursday cited two intelligence officials saying that McMaster had found no evidence of wrong-doing. The news comes the same day Circa reported that McMaster sent Rice a letter at the end of April informing the former Obama official that she would keep her security clearance...

    Multi-billion dollar corporation CNN is Extorting a Private Citizen over a Joke Tweet! CNN reported Tuesday that they declined to publicly identify the Reddit user who created the Trump CNN wrestling video because he promised not to do it again.   CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski then went on to say, “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”That is extortion. They threatened to dox him. It turns out that CNN has targeted the wrong person! Analysis of the video shows evidence that the wrestling video President Trump posted to his Twitter account did not originate from this particular Reddit user.The Daily Wire...
  • When the Supreme Court ruled to allow American flag burning

    06/26/2017 5:42:47 PM PDT · by Uncle Sam 911 · 31 replies
    On June 21, 1989, a deeply divided United States Supreme Court upheld the rights of protesters to burn the American flag in a landmark First Amendment decision. In the controversial Texas v. Johnson case, the Court voted 5-4 in favor of Gregory Lee Johnson, the protester. Johnson’s actions, the majority argued, were symbolic speech political in nature and could be expressed even at the affront of those who disagreed with him. Justice William Brennan wrote the majority decision, with Justices Anthony Kennedy, Thurgood Marshall, Harry Blackmun and Antonin Scalia concurring. “Johnson was convicted for engaging in expressive conduct. The State's...

    Union leaders in California continued a protest even after neighbors and police informed them they were at the wrong house because their target, Rep. Steve Knight (R., Calif.), had moved away months ago. The group of over 50 protestors, who arrived in Service Employees International Union (SEIU) vans, carried a fake coffin to the house to send a message that Knight's votes in Congress were "killing" them, according to a report in the local Antelope Valley Press. Police arrived at the scene to alert the union protestors that they were in the wrong place, but the activists—who had already been...

    Much has been made of Donald Trump’s problems with a few voting groups — female voters, blacks and Hispanics, and young voters, in particular. And, to be sure, they are all problems. But relatively speaking, his biggest problem actually appears to be with a different group: Catholics. Yes, the man who once feuded with the pope (how soon we forget that actually happened) is cratering among Catholics.

    During the latter years of the last century, Congress enacted reforms to the federal immigration law. The part of this enactment with which, in light of the above, everyone should be concerned is now in the United States Code at Section 1324a(h)(2), where it mandates the federal pre-emption of: ... any State or local law imposing civil or criminal sanctions (other than through licensing and similar laws) upon those who employ, or recruit or refer for a fee for employment, unauthorized aliens. This provision flagrantly robs the American workers and businesses injured by the use of illegal alien workers of...

    One of the three winners of the record-breaking Powerball lottery jackpot in the United States became wealthy overnight thanks to the generosity of her boss, one of the American Jewish community’s leading philanthropists. Shlomo Rechnitz, a health care magnate who owns 80 assisted living facilities throughout California, purchased nearly 18,000 lottery tickets for all of his employees, one of which happened to contain the winning numbers. The unprecedented $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot will be divided among three winning tickets purchased in Tennessee, California and Florida. Each ticket is worth $528.8 million, lottery officials said in California, one of 44 states...

    With just two major Republican debates remaining before the Iowa presidential caucuses, Donald Trump has been remarkably lucky. The only major candidate who could actually inflict lasting harm on the vulgar poster child for inherited wealth, and the only one who could readily attract and hold some of Trump's blue collar constituency, is the only one banished - by the idiotic, poll-driven debate rules to which the feckless Republican National Committee acquiesced - from sharing a single stage with The Donald. For reasons both stylistic and substantive, Pennsylvania's former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum could eviscerate Trump in a direct encounter....

    Wheaton College is stirring up an old debate this week that’s worth revisiting. Professor Larycia Hawkins, in an effort to show solidarity with Muslims, decided to wear a hijab during advent. While wearing a hijab may have been tolerated by the school, what she said about the relationship between Islam and Christianity, was not. She wrote: “I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book. And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.” For the crime of saying, “we worship the same God” Hawkins was suspended from...
