The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today

7. Oakland Raiders (Alazona Raiders?) to Birmingham seems unlikely 

— The city of Birmingham could be the home of the Oakland Raiders, at least part-time for one year, if a deal with the team and the city of Tucson, Arizona comes to fruition. The Raiders’ lease with the Oakland Coliseum is expired and they don’t start in Las Vegas until 2020, and their current attempts to find a home for a year have stalled.

6. One of the Lt. Gov. of Virginia’s accusers has released old Facebook messages where she mentions her alleged rape

— Lt. Gov. Fairfax has denied assaulting anyone, but messages given to Fox News indicate that one of the accusers has been telling people of the assault for years. Meredith Watson told confronted a friend about her knowledge of the rape during Fairfax’s campaign in 2017, saying, “This is absolutely disgusting! This dude raped me.”

5. As more Democrats enter the 2020 field, former Vice President Joe Biden leads the field

— In an already large field, that is poised to keep growing, the old guard is still leading the way while new upstarts are languishing in single digits. Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) have 29 and 22 percent each, the only other candidate with over ten percent is Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

4. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is going to make Democrats vote on their silly Green New Deal

— Senator McConnell wants to make Democrats do more than offer lip-service to a bill that embarrassed many Democrats and had to be pulled off sponsor Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ website after being mocked. McConnell slyly stated, “I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal. And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. Give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.

3. Alabama Governor Kay Ivey will attempt to build three massive prisons at a cost of $900 million dollars

— Governor Ivey may use a bond measure or a build-lease plan to get the prisons built, the later will be more appealing to politicians as it does not require legislators to give money to prisoners. Senator Cam Ward (R-Alabaster) says, “Getting it out of our hands is the only way you’re going to get this done.” The plan would build two prisons for up to 3,500 prisoners and the third will host “special needs” prisoners, including mental health. Alabama has recently come under fire for being “deliberately indifferent” to the needs of mentally ill prisoners.

2. No collusion between Trump campaign and Russians found by Senate investigators 

— In what appears to be a trend, more people associated with the investigation into Russian collusion are declaring there is no collusion. Senate Democrats now agree with Republican Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) who said the same thing last week. A dejected Democrat aide accepts this but seems dejected telling NBC News, “We were never going to find a contract signed in blood saying, ‘Hey Vlad, we’re going to collude.'”

1. President Donald Trump has not been clear about whether he will sign-off on the latest border/budget deal

— The President says he is “not happy” with the deal that Alabama Senator Richard Shelby and other negotiators have come up with that doesn’t fully fund his border wall, but added, “I don’t think you’re going to see a shutdown.” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wants the President to hold off on signing the bill but believes he may declare a national emergency to get to the $5.7 billion he’s wanted for the wall.

The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today

7. Alabama elected officials raise concerns over the influx of undocumented minors

— Last year 730 unaccompanied minors appeared in Alabama cities and towns to be placed with guardians to make sure they attend their immigration hearing, over 3,000 have arrived since 2014. Unsurprisingly, half of those kids are not in attendance when they ordered to be removed from the country when their asylum claims are rejected. This system incentivizes law-breaking and burdens the schools where they are placed.

6. The goalposts move on the Russia investigation, new House Intelligence chairman targets nations other than Russia

— President Donald Trump now has to worry about an ever-expanding investigation headed by Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA). Schiff says this “pertains to any credible allegations of leverage by the Russians or the Saudis or anyone else.” The President isn’t sweating this and has dismissed him, “He’s just a political hack trying to build a name for himself,” and called it “presidential harassment.”

5. Alabama inmate has his execution stayed because the state won’t provide a Muslim imam

 — The convicted killer of a 15-year-old girl received his stay from a federal appeals court by saying the state’s position violates freedom of religion protections. The state confusingly agreed to remove a Christian chaplain but cited security reason for not allowing an imam in the chamber, the stated reason is that they don’t want a non-prison employee in the chamber.

4. Protestors show up at the Attorney General’s office to protest the decision not to charge the officer in the Hoover Galleria shooting

— Angry protesters, including the family of E.J. Bradford, arrived at the Montgomery office of the Attorney General to protest the decision to not charge the officer who shot and killed Bradford on Thanksgiving. The protestors chanted for Attorney General Steve Marshall, they were told to disperse, and two individuals were arrested for attempting to enter the building.

3. Alabama Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) seems to signify that deal on border security could be close

— Congressional negotiators may be about to avoid another government shutdown according to Sen. Shelby, “I would say we’ve got a much better chance today than we had Monday to reach some kind of resolution on this.” Negotiators met with the Border Patrol, they recommended $5.7 billion be spent on a border wall, but Democrat negotiator Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX)  says that is not happening but, “we can probably get there on some sort of enhanced barriers, with local input.”

2. Virginia’s meltdown continues as their Attorney General has now admitted to wearing blackface too

— Governor Ralph Northam (D) is facing racism charges and calls to resign, the Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) has now called the woman accusing him a “bitch”, and now the Attorney General Mark Herring is under fire for wearing blackface and dressing as a rapper. Herring was considered a rising star, and candidate for Governor, he also coincidently said that Gov. Northam should resign for wearing blackface last week.

1. Potential challengers to U.S. Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) attempt to tie him to Democrats abortion positions

— As Democrats lurch left seeking to mollify an increasingly radical base the party finds itself in the middle of multiple attempts to expand abortion on demand until birth. Red state Democrats, like Doug Jones, find themselves in an unenvious position as their opponents tie them to these bills that push positions that are wildly unpopular with the American public but popular with the hardcore liberals in the base who want abortion on demand.

In a rebuke to the main criticism of the Trump tax cuts, that is is that they will explode the deficit, a new report from the Congressional Budget Office after one year of results from the tax cut show growth outpaces costs. If you compare the pre-tax reform projections to projections now the CBO predicts GDP growth to be almost $750 billion higher by 2027. Experts have pointed out that the problems with our exploding deficits are spending not tax cuts and is gaining in popularity.

The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today

7. While the media reacts with glee over the Washington Post congratulating themselves for doing their job, the real story is far better

— In a Super Bowl spot that allowed the media to talk about themselves AND cast themselves as victims, the Washington Post declared that “Democracy dies in the Darkness.” What most people watching this spot missed was the original spot was purchased for one of the Post’s owner’s other company, Blue Origin. Jeff Bezos decided to pull the plug on the spot for his spaceflight company, which his mistress helped shoot, and run this self-aggrandizing tripe instead.

6. Wife of slain Birmingham police officer will be attending the State of the Union as the guest of Rep. Terri Sewell (D-Birmingham)

— Rep. Sewell’s office announced that Tiphanie Carter will attend President Donald Trump delivers the address to a joint session of Congress this evening.  Sergeant Wytasha Carter was murdered by criminals who shot him in the head while he was investigating vehicle break-ins in downtown Birmingham. Other members of Congress are bringing illegal aliens, furloughed government employees, and other members of the public to highlight issues they feel are important. President Trump’s invited guests include victims of illegal immigration, pardoned criminals, and a kid bullied for being named Trump.

5. The  is using Ronald Reagan to lobby for more spending on roads and bridges

— In 1982, oddly enough the last time Alabama raised gas taxes, President Reagan lobbied for more spending to fix infrastructure by saying, “The bridges and highways we fail to repair today will have to be rebuilt tomorrow at many times the cost.” Using Reagan in a red state like Alabama to call for a higher gas tax is a unique approach. The organization running the ads is made up of various Chambers of Commerce, the Business Council of Alabama, and other business groups. Other states have used this tactic.

4. The Governor of Virginia, who admits to wearing blackface, doesn’t want to be seen as a “racist for life” by resigning

—Gov. Ralph Northam (D) insisted that he need “more time” to decide whether he can cling to power after a disastrous week where he has found few allies and increasing calls to resign. In a “solemn” cabinet meeting that included his possible replacement, he told his staff that he would be branded a “racist for life” and that he needs to convince people that he is not in that photo. Reportedly, his own staff is finding that story hard to believe.

3. The potential next Governor of Virginia, and the current Lieutenant Governor, is facing new scrutiny that the media may have actually handled correctly

— Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of Virginia has denied that he sexually assaulted a woman in 20014. The denial included a now rebuked assertion that the Washington Post found inconsistencies in the woman’s story. More interestingly, he says the allegations are being pushed to the media by Governor Northam’s supporters, “Does anybody think it’s any coincidence that on the eve of potentially my being elevated that that’s when this uncorroborated smear comes out?” If true, that would mean Virginia Democrats and the media knew about this allegation and said nothing which is a pretty stark contrast with how those two groups handled allegations against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

2. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) touts up to $1 billion dollars in Alabama investment by the FBI

— Sen. Shelby was speaking at a Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce event where he spoke about the potential for 4,000 FBI jobs to their Redstone Arsenal facility. These jobs will have an impact on the state that is on par with the $1.6 billion dollar investment by Mazda-Toyota project. Shelby told the crowd that “Huntsville is on fire,” and added, “The whole area is on fire economically. You’re attracting everything here. You’ve got the brainpower here.”

1. It’s State of the Union day, no one knows which President Donald Trump will show up

— President Trump is going to deliver his State of the Union address tonight, which will be his third address to a joint session of Congress. But this time his new #1 foil Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will be prominently seated behind him next to Vice President Mike Pence. The potential of another government shutdown is looming, border security and immigration are sure to be featured as well. The President will call for bipartisan efforts on trade and prescription drugs, but the speech will almost assuredly touch on divisive issues like abortion and could potentially be used to announce a declaration of emergency on border security.
