    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Three people are in jail, charged in the murder of Greater Memphis Chamber President, Phil Trenary. Memphis Police arrested 18-year-old Quandarius Richardson, 22-year-old McKinney Wright Jr. And 16-year-old Racanisha Wright. Neighbors tell Local 24 that Treanary's death was shocking. However, they are not letting that horrific shooting run them out of their neighborhood. They say their safety is their number one concern, so these arrests do bring peace, but they say it's a situation where no one wins. "Of course, we were concerned is this a targeted killing or was this random violence," said Fontaine Pearson,...

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — U.S. Senate candidate Phil Bredesen has taken some soft jabs at Republican opponent Marsha Blackburn for refusing to debate him in Memphis, Tennessee. He also unnerved some supporters when he said he could back policies made by President Donald Trump — as long as they help Tennessee. Bredesen, a Democrat, answered questions at a forum at Rhodes College in Memphis on Thursday. More than 400 people attended the session scheduled on the same day Bredesen wanted to debate Blackburn, who has represented a Middle Tennessee district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2002....

    Archaeologists in Egypt have uncovered a village with remains that predate the pharaohs by around 2,000 years. Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities said that the Neolithic site was discovered in Tell el-Samara, about 87 miles north of Cairo. Chief archaeologist Frederic Gio said his team found silos containing animal bones and food, indicating human habitation as early as 5,000 B.C. Pottery and stone tools were also found. The pharaonic era began around 3,000 B.C. and the Giza pyramids were built 500 years later. The village is one of the oldest found in the Nile Delta, according to a Facebook post by...

    Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., said he regrets telling FBI agent Peter Strzok in Thursday’s House Judiciary and House Oversight committee hearing that he deserves a Purple Heart medal for his testimony. “I said something at the hearings yesterday about Purple Hearts which another network that is named for a four-legged animal has been making a big deal about,” Cohen told CNN, referring to criticism from Fox News. “I regret using the term ‘Purple Heart,’” he continued. “I used it metaphorically, not literally. I never literally thought the Purple Heart should be given to agent Strzok. But I do believe that...

    One of the most egregious displays of Trump Derangement Syndrome to occur during the Peter Strzok’s Congressional testimony on Thursday was demonstrated by Tennessee Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen who told disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok that he should be awarded a Purple Heart. “If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one. This has been an attack on you, in a way to attack Mr. Mueller, in the investigation that is to get at Russia collusion involved in our election,” Rep. Cohen said. Cohen’s belief that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart, one of the highest...

    On Thursday, FBI agent Peter Strzok testified on Capitol Hill, answering questions about his anti-Trump bias and the investigation into alleged ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia. Strzok gave conflicting explanations of his anti-Trump text messages and dodged important questions, but Democrats in Congress proved quite happy with his testimony. "If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one," Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) told Strzok. "This has been an attack on you [and] the investigation, to get to Russian collusion involved in our election which is what this committee should be looking at," the...

    Short video at link. FBI Agent Peter Strzok was grilled on Capitol Hill Thursday by members of Congress for sending anti-Trump texts during two ongoing investigations. Well, he was at least grilled by the Republicans. The likes of Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Louie Gohmert (R-TX) demanded to know whether Strzok let his political bias affect his job. He admitted that he "detested" Donald Trump, but at no point did his political ideology factor in to his work at the FBI. The interrogators didn't believe him. Gohmert was particularly combative, telling Strzok he didn't appreciate the "smirk"...

    Amazing, absolutely, amazing, that a blabbering moron, Democrat, Congressman, Steve Cohen of Memphis, Tennessee was ever elected to office, He has no idea what the "Purple Star Medal of Honor" is awarded for.

    Despite advances the country has made since the Rev. Martin Luther King. Jr. was slain while fighting poverty and racism, “the age of bullies and bigots is not fully behind us,” former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday.

[…] Holder, the first black U.S. attorney general, spoke at a symposium sponsored by the University of Memphis and the museum. He was introduced...

    David Kernell, best known for hacking into Sarah Palin's personal Yahoo account during the 2008 presidential campaign, has died from complications of multiple sclerosis. After being sentenced to a year in prison he got his life back on track, by most accounts. Kernell, 30, was a student at the University of Tennessee 10 years ago when he successfully guessed Palin's security answers, which allowed him to change the password and get access to the Yahoo account, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported while confirming his death last week in California through family members.
