The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today

1. Despite the chaos Trump’s polls are up, he’s doing best in Alabama 

— While President Trump’s poll numbers are low compared to his predecessors, he is still on the rise after a few legislative wins, but these polls were done before a week-long domestic abuse scandal rocked the White House.

— The President’s approval in Alabama is at 63%, highest in the nation, and unchanged since the last poll.

2. Democrats try to kill immigration debate, a court orders Trump to keep Obama’s plan going

— As the Senate continues to try to come to an agreement on immigration, Democrats signal they are not willing to budge on hot-button issues like sanctuary cities.

— Sen. Cotton told Democrats that President Trump’s “framework bill is not an opening bid for negotiations. It’s a best and final offer”.

3. Anything less than a check for Americans who need food assistance is a massive insult, apparently

— It is probably a long shot but the Trump budget cuts cash assistant and replaces it with a box delivered to the homes of those in need.

— The plan also creates a work requirement and time limits for assistance.

4. Democrats never wanted you to see their FISA memo, all for show and the media played along

— To the surprise of absolutely no one, Democrats are refusing change their rebuttal to Rep. Devin Nunes’ FISA memo so it can be released to the public.

— When, and if the memo is released, the Democrats will claim the redaction cover-up misdeeds by  Nunes and the White House.

5. Madison makes a deal for baseball, the deal seems done, snaking a baseball team from Mobile

— The City of Madison and the soon to be renamed Mobile Bay Bears have agreed to a lease to bring the team to Madison in 2020.

— The $46 million dollar stadium will be part of a major retail development, but it must clear the final hurdles with the Southern League, Minor League Baseball, and Major League Baseball.

6.  It is an election year, pay raise moves forward in the Alabama House

— The Alabama State House passed the largest budget in Alabama history 102-0, it includes a 2.5% increase.

— Predictably, some politicians wanted more, State Rep. Laura Hall said 2.5 percent is good start but a “5 percent raise I think would be an excellent start”.

7. Federal judges continue to meddle in Alabama’s education system after 50+ years of desegregation orders

— The City of Gardendale suffered a major blow to the efforts to escape Jefferson County Schools when federal judges declared their motives were racist.

— Judges also claimed the moves would harm Jefferson County’s ability to escape a desegregation order has been in place for 50 years.

The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today

1. Qualifying is now over, most GOP candidates for governor participate in their first forum as Kay Ivey polls well

— The four major GOP Gubernatorial candidates met at the Mid-Alabama GOP meeting to participate in a forum, each staking out the message that they will try to make over the next 4 months.

— Recently polling, reportedly shows Kay Ivey at 52%, even if you include Roy Moore, this is a pretty high bar for her opponents to reach.

2. Democrats have a larger field in the House, smaller field in the Senate than 2014 but they lost 2 long-time members

— Alabama Democrats seem to have given up northern Alabama, outside of Huntsville and Muscle Shoals, and have decided to focus on GOP candidates in Jefferson and Shelby Counties.

— After former Congressman Bobby Bright left the Democrat Party in order to run for AL-02 as a Republican, former Alabama House Minority Leader, State Rep. Craig Ford, has decided he will run for State Senate as an Independent.

3. Vice President Mike Pence is open to talks with North Korea

— Pence led the U.S. delegation to the Olympics and left the games with a message that the U.S. will talk with the North Korean leader if it was something “The Hermit Kingdom” wanted.

— Pence sad his goal in South Korea was to apply “maximum pressure and engagement at the same time”, sanctions will continue as well.

4. The American media falls in love with horrific regime of North Korea because they think it hurts President Trump 

— Kim Jung Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, smiled her way in to the hearts of the American media, with CNN proclaiming that she was “stealing the show”.

— Another favorite for the North Korean dictator’s fangirls in the American media was the NK cheering section, which consisted of uniform dress and synchronized cheers during the nation’s events.

5. Another Senate Republican has an immigration bill, this one is more in line with the White House

— Sen. Tom Cotton and 6 other GOP Senators have a bill that includeds amnesty for 1.8 million illegals, $25 billion for a wall, an end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery, is patterned after President Trump’s immigration desires.

— Both chamber of the Congress have promised a debate over immigration but most believe there is a wide-gulf between what each party will accept, significantly decreasing the chances of something passing.

6. Democrats say GOP FISA memo included “sources and methods” (it didn’t) while demanding Dem memo be released

— After the President blocked the release of a memo written by Rep. Adam Schiff, Schiff says he will meet with the FBI to discuss redactions over actual sources and methods.

— The White House says they believe Schiff “intentionally put in there methods and sources he knew would need to be redacted” to stop his memo from being released.

7. White House mishandles the exit of an accused wife-beater, it becomes the #1 story of the weekend

— Another week, another completely unnecessary “scandal” allows the media to pound away on the White House for being insensitive to <insert group here>.

— By all accounts, folks at the White House did not believe the allegations against Trump staffer, Rob Porter, were credible until photos emerged and then he was fired.

Open Season for Democrat Senators to Smack Women by Taxpayer Tom

Disloyal Martha Roby Does Not Deserve a Place on the Republican Ballot by Taxpayer Tom

February 8, 2018

Dear Chairman Lathan (

I request the Steering Committee of the Alabama Republican Party deny US Representative Martha Roby (R, AL2) the privilege of access to the Republican ballot for the primary election on June 5, 2018. Representative Roby has asked the Alabama Republican Executive Committee to place her on the primary ballot as a candidate for nomination for her current seat in the US House of Representatives.

I think Representative Roby has disqualified herself from consideration for a Republican nomination by disloyalty to the Party during the 2016 election campaign by publicly announcing on October 8, 2016 that she would not be voting for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Representative Roby’s denunciation of nominee Trump was a response to the Washington Post story and audio released on October 7, 2016 of a hot mic recording of a lewd conversation between TV personality Billy Bush and Donald Trump on the way to the set of a TV soap opera in 2005.

The Washington Post story was published two days before the October 9 presidential debate. The story was simply an “October surprise,” salacious news released just before an election when there is not enough time to evaluate its truth and significance nor to form and execute reasonable responses to it (such as replacing a candidate determined to be unworthy through due process by the party).

We have recently seen similar political ambushes in Alabama involving US Senate candidate Roy Moore, state superintendent of education candidate Craig Pouncey, and Huntsville superintendent of education candidate Katrise Perera.

Before the nomination, Donald Trump was well known for his occasional lack of decorum. Even so, he was the choice of the people and he won the Republican nomination for president. The Washington Post revelation provided an example of his notoriously crass behavior, but it did not reveal anything about his character that was not already known.

Nominee Trump said almost immediately, “I was wrong, and I apologize.” Senator  Kelly Ayotte (R, NH), a female candidate for reelection, while saying she would vote for nominee Trump, said his comments were “totally inappropriate and offensive.”

In contrast with Senator Ayotte, for the sake of pompously signaling her virtue, Representative Roby almost immediately played into the Washington Post’s “October surprise” revelation of events 11 years earlier by saying, “Donald Trump’s behavior makes him unacceptable as a candidate for president, and I won’t vote for him.”

The members of a political party cooperate to win elections to control government and enact an agenda based on generally agreed to principles. Republican nominees who do not cooperate with other Republican nominees to win elections are working against Republican control of government, working against the Republican agenda, working against Republican principles, and working against the good governance that stems from those principles.

Representative Roby seriously damaged the Republican Party. By denouncing the top of the ticket, she strengthened the Democrat campaign for electing Hillary Clinton to be president, and she strengthened campaigns for Democrats across the country. Her precedent also contributed to the defection of Republican voters and the loss of the race for US Senate in December 2017, a race affected by the Washington Post’s ambush of Roy Moore one month before the special general election in December 2017, an ambush alleging misconduct nearly 40 years earlier.

Ordinarily, we should all want voters to choose the nominees of the Party, but occasionally extraordinary circumstances demand that Party leaders use the authority given them by the people to deny ballot access to a person whose candidacy would be exceptionally harmful to the people and the Party alike. Representative Roby’s disloyalty to the Republican Party is an extraordinary circumstance.

Failure to defend the Party will send a signal that the Party is not worth defending.

The Steering Committee is the main governing body of the Alabama Republican Party. It has the authority to act. For the sake of unifying candidates about the principles of Republicanism, I request you and your colleagues deny Representative Roby a place on the June 2018 Republican Party primary ballot.

Sincerely, Thomas Scovill
