The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today

7. The American media wants you to know they are a biased monolith by conspiring to publish 100 similar editorials on the same day

— The “coordinated response” to President Donald Trump’s “enemy of the people” comments is being spearheaded by The Boston Globe, and is predicated on the premise that Trump hasn’t been clear that the “fake news media” is the enemy of the people.

— The Boston Globe’s editor wrote a letter to other papers proposing the papers “to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration’s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date.”

6. Parkland, Florida school shooting could have been prevented before it happened or stopped during the shooting
— The lead investigator Sheriff Bob Gualtieri further highlighted the absurdity of police inaction by pointing out that “There were several other times when he was in that school that his gun was empty,” the sheriff said, noting that the rifle had a six-round magazine.”
— This information further compounds the tragedy by making it clear that had the Broward County sheriffs deputy on the scene and the school resource officer’s failure to act cost children their lives.

5. “In God We Trust” could be coming back to Alabama schools

— Blount County’s school board is ready to move forward on with a ordinance that will allow some form of religious display at county schools, they are consulting with lawyers and are prepared to move on this within the next month.

— Alabama lawmakers passed a law in February to allow local school systems to permit displays of faith on public property, lawsuits have been threatened and will follow.

4. Foolish criticism of Huntsville city council as they agree to pay the legal fees of officer accused of murder

— The Huntsville police department stood behind a police officer charged with murder and at the urging of the mayor and police chief the city council voted 4-0 to pay for the officers defense attorney at a cost of $75,000.

— AL.com’s liberal columnist declared that the decision to pay the officer’s legal fees and not release the video of the incidents “implicates” the city, he fails to realize their is still a trial that is going to take place and releasing said video could impact that trial.

3. “Unite The Right” rally a giant bust, media continues spot fuel the fire 
— Only completely irrelevant group two dozen white nationalists appeared in Washington D.C. with the support of no one, they were met by 100s of cops, 100s of news media, and 1000s of counter protesters.

— Today’s media coverage will consist of complaints that the President didn’t do enough to condemn this in spite of him actively and directly criticizing this event.

2. Sen. Doug Jones fails to remake the Alabama Democrat Party
— Jones, who shocked the world by winning a long-shot U.S. Senate seat, attempted to push long-time Democrat leader Nancy Worley out of her position and install Montgomery attorney Peck Fox because the party is non-existent on social media and has no communication strategy.

— The 101-89 vote was a defeat for Doug Jones, House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels, and those who wanted aggressive change in the Alabama Democrat Party..

1. Omarosa Manigault wrote a book, said Trump uses the n-word, and recorded Chief of Staff John Kelly in the White House

— The most outrageous allegation leveled by Manigault is that she has heard a tape of the President saying the n-word, in her book she mentions pollster Frank Luntz being aware of the tape, a allegation Luntz says is “Not only is this flat-out false (I’ve never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn’t even make an effort to call or email me to verify” on Twitter.

— Manigault’s recording of her termination in the most secure part of the White House is leading to calls for charges against her.

The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today

7. As social media and media distribution companies ban Infowars’ Alex Jones, Twitter’s CEO accurately describes why it is a bad idea

— The CEO of the social media giant Jack Dorsey launched a Tweet-storm explaining that Jones had not broke any of their rules and that Twitter would not cave to mob pressure.

— More importantly, Dorsey called out journalists, some who favor deplatforming Jones, poitining out that “accounts like Jones’ can often sensationalize issues and spread unsubstantiated rumors, so it’s critical journalists document, validate, and refute such information directly so people can form their own opinions. This is what serves the public conversation best.”

6. Attorney General Jeff Sessions continues to work on ending DACA in spite of what federal judges are trying to do

— Sessions accurately told the The Hill, “We have recently witnessed a number of decisions in which courts have improperly used judicial power to steer, enjoin, modify, and direct executive policy” and he is having none of this as the Attorney General.

— The AG says he will continue to “take every lawful measure” to push back against these activist judges, as this now the 3rd judge to rule in this fashion on this executive power.

5. Candidate for Governor Walt Maddox still can’t stop talking about a debate that will never happen

— It is a story that can’t be told enough, “Gov. Ivey doesn’t owe me a debate” Maddox whined, “She does owe the people of Alabama” as he continued to dodge hot button political issues to talk about sewage and highways.

— Ivey accurately described this issue a week ago, and much like when Marco Rubio was nailed by Chris Christie, Maddox can not get off this sad script about debates.

4. Alabama’s Democrat junior Senator Doug Jones is polling pretty well, his vote on Trump’s Supreme Court nominee could change that

— No one expected Jones to be a Senator today, but he is and his numbers bode pretty well for the caretaker Senator making a real run at re-election, he is polling at 46 percent approval which only trails Sen. Richard Shelby by two points.

— But Jones’ hedging on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination could hurt him because the amount of voters who support him at a larger clip than who support Jones.

3. Former Governor Robert Bentley is back, and he may be leaving the door open for further political life 

— The former Governor reactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and launched the website Bentley for Alabama, to offer a look at his time in office, which no one asked for.

— But the Bentley re-emergence is not a nostalgia act, he tells Yellowhammer News that he would consider a run for office, including in 2020’s Senate race,  “If God shows me a new avenue where I can do that, I’ll do it.”

2. Republicans eek out a victory in an Ohio special election

— Ohio’s special election in the 12th Congressional District is a big win for Republicans because it keeps their advantage at 23 seats, the gap is still to close to call but a win is a win.

— Democrats have to feel relatively good about this, the seat has been a GOP seat for 30+ years, Romney and Trump each won the district by 10+, Trump endorsed the candidates, and they still almost pulled off the upset.

1. Midterms are coming and Republicans continue to under-perform, it matters

— The trend is undeniable, Democrats are fired up and Republicans are losing ground even if they aren’t losing a bunch of seats.

— There are months to go, but Republicans better hope all these elections are abnormalities and that turnout will be much different in November.

Democrats have a plan, it is pricey, and they have no idea how to pay for it 

— A contributor to Vox News, Brian Reidl. set out to calculate the latest series of Democrat election year plans, if you include single-payer health care, free college and a guaranteed job, it cost $42 TRILLION.

— Reidl has a couple ideas on how Democrats could raise this revenue, seize 100% of corporate profits, all income over $90,000 for single filers and $150,000 for couples, a 87 percent value-added tax, or a 37 percent payroll tax.

The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today
 
7. The people demanding you love the media and honor them as heroes don’t really care what anyone else thinks about their performance
 
— After several days of complaints about Trump supporters and the president himself “attacking the free press,” the media paused to demand that a non-profit museum stop selling “fake news” t-shirts.
 
— Humorless as always, reporters feigned outrage and declared this wrong must be righted, “you exist to honor, examine and protect the news media, not embrace the bywords by which others seek to undermine it.” The Newseum caved to the professional scolds.
 
6. Those same people who play up the threat to their profession disingenuously ignore the threats they may be creating with their rhetoric
 
— Last week, a lunatic with an immigration grudge driven by the media’s narrative about “children being ripped away from their parents” and “kids being locked in cages” left Congressman Steve Scalise a voicemail, telling him, “You are taking ours, we are taking yours”.
 
— The man was arrested, but they found ammunition, guns, a how-to on making silencers and bombs and a book about creating a new identity. The lack of coverage, self-reflection and outrage by the media is pretty stunning.
 
5. The people demanding you understand the racism of an Asian-American New York Times writer decided the spectacle should really ask the question, “Is it OK to make fun of white people online?“
 
— The New York Times continues to stand behind the author of such gems as “Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men,” and “#CancelWhitePeople,” defending her as a victim of racism herself who attacked out of self-defense, which was obviously a lie.
 
— Her defenders in the media immediately forgot about the “she can’t be racist, she’s a person of color” defense to attack a comedian who went on Fox News and said some equally racist things about Asian Americans.
 
4. Like most Alabama Democrats, Sen. Doug Jones has found the inability to answer simple questions clearly gives you cover
 
— Sen. Doug Jones continues to be vague and cagey on his vote for soon-to-be Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, just like he was during the campaign on abortion.
 
— Jones told Yellowhammer News’ Jeff Poor that he hopes to meet with Kavanaugh, but won’t do it until after the hearing while he gave himself some wiggle room by implying there is no way to go through all the documents, or answer all the totally serious questions, before a vote. This may telegraph an excuse for a “No” vote.
 
3. President Donald Trump chooses to attack the nation’s most popular athlete where there is a special election this week for a comment no one watched. His wife disagrees with him
 
— Trump tweeted on Friday that CNN’s Don Lemon and LeBron James were dumb because of an interview that aired on Lemon’s low-rated TV show where James said the president was divisive.
 
— Both Michael Jordan, who was mentioned, and the president’s wife dunked on Trump by talking about what a great guy LeBron is.
 
2. Astronauts are headed back to the moon. Alabama will continue to play a role
 
— NASA has now named the nine astronauts who fly the first U.S. based spaceflights using commercial spacecraft from both Boeing and Space X, the government’s shuttle program ended in 2011
 
— Alabama’s senior Senator Richard Shelby shared his delight with Alabama’s role in this new ear of spaceflight, “Exciting day for American spaceflight! @NASA announced 9 brave astronauts selected to fly @BoeingSpace/@SpaceX commercial crew capsules, part of which will be powered by @ULALaunch Atlas V made in #Decatur. This is a new era as we once again launch humans into space from US soil.”
 
1. It’s not about adoption anymore, the Trump Tower meeting drama continues
 
— Another lie by the president exposed, another complete misreading of the situation by the media. Trump has now admitted his kid met to get dirt and he lied about it.
 
— If anyone thinks the American president is going to be indicted because his kid and some staff met with a Russian lawyer to get dirt on an opponent, I feel sorry for what is eventually coming out of this Mueller probe — nothing.

Doing Right and Doing Write Ins in November by Taxpayer Tom Scovill

Because the best politics is good governance and the best governance is based on Republican principles, I vote for Republican nominees so Republicans can control government and enact a Republican agenda to provide the good governance we all expect and deserve.

This means politics is like a team sport. I like the principles of Republicanism, so my team is Republican. I expect everyone on the team to cooperate in getting Republicans into office and in advancing a Republican agenda. Unfortunately, this year I am disappointed by the many Republicans who are not cooperating as they should, so now, unlike the last 50 years, I am not voting a straight Republican ticket in the general election in November.

I will vote for nominees who please me. I will not vote for nominees who displease me. I will use the Dick Shelby precedent and write in the names of Republicans whom I like better.

Some Republican nominees have already won me over. I will vote for my Republican congressman, nominees for county offices, and nominees for local and state-wide judicial offices. I will be voting for most of the Republicans nominees on my general election ballot.

Except for the judges, my plan is to not vote for Republican nominees who want a job in Montgomery. There are 12 of them – the Republican nominees for the House, Senate, governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer, auditor, commissioner for agriculture and industries, public service commission places 1 and 2, and state board of education. Those nominees who want to remain or become Montgomery Republicans are welcome to urge me to change my mind, but they should hurry because I am looking for names to write in. Weighing in out loud on the issues below would help them with me.

I am disappointed in Montgomery Republicans who stay quiet while others of them break the law.

For example, Attorney General Steve Marshall has taken $735,000 of unlawful contributions from the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) in blatant defiance of Alabama law which prohibits 527 organizations from giving money to Alabama candidates. Marshall is required by law to return the money and has not. Even though campaign finance is the signature issue which swept them into super majority power in 2010, Montgomery Republicans are silent on the issue, perhaps they are too busy preparing alibi’s for their scofflaw colleague.

Montgomery Republicans are also silent about the Ethics Commission and Republican election officials who, in defiance of state ethics law, are putting candidates on ballots when the candidates have not first filed Statements of Economic Interests (SEI) with the state Ethics Commission. The SEI is an important element in government transparency, or at least it was.

Montgomery Republicans defied the origination clause of the Alabama Constitution when they enacted a Senate bill to create a tax on internet sales. The voluntary tax is taking $50 million out of the Alabama economy this year and will take out much more next year when it becomes compulsory. Of course, Montgomery Republicans do not talk much about this when they are away from extra special, revenue hungry friends.

And in recent years, four Montgomery Republicans have been convicted of crime – Speaker Mike Hubbard, his House allies Greg Wren and Mickey Hammon, and Governor Bentley – no back benchers here. Meanwhile, three other Montgomery Republican are twisting in the wind of federal indictments.

What happened to the Republican ethic hawks we elected in 2010?

Montgomery Republicans are being blatantly disloyal to the Republican team.

In March, Governor Ivey passed over qualified Republicans to appoint a Democrat to the Madison County Commission. I am baffled that she did not use the opportunity to put a Republican into a traditionally Democrat district. I am disappointed by the silence of Montgomery Republicans.

In May during the week before the primary and while early voting was in progress, the Alabama Republican Party (ALGOP) decided to save PSC 1 candidate Jeremy Oden by censuring his opponent, James Bonner, and declaring that votes for Mr. Bonner would not be counted. Apparently, despite having been on Republican ballots five times since 2010, the sometimes indecorous ways of Mr. Bonner were noticed only when Oden’s investors complained about their guy being in trouble despite a 70 to 1 funding advantage.

Also in this election cycle, ALGOP leaders have turned a blind eye to 60 Republicans, who in defiance of party rules to the contrary, have collectively taken over $600,000 from the Alabama Education Association (the AEA, the parent company of the Alabama Democrat Party). Even House Speaker McCutcheon took AEA money. This is an affront to fair play and those who followed the rule. Of the 60, 55 won or placed in the primary. Meanwhile, Montgomery Republicans were telling the investing class to not contribute to primary candidates challenging GOP incumbents.

I am sad the Alabama GOP is becoming little more than an incumbent protection racket.

None of my concerns are mitigated by brilliance in Montgomery Republicans advancing an impressively Republican agenda. Besides some minor pruning of general government, passing the Alabama Accountability Act to enable the force of competition into government education, requiring voter photo ID, and implementing electronic campaign finance disclosures, in eight years our Montgomery Republicans have done little else I can crow about. They have not even started to reform Medicaid, pensions, earmarks, and the budget process. Alabama government remains the major player in the retail booze business.

What happened to the Republicans we elected in 2010? Today, I am more fearful of what Montgomery Republicans are planning to do to me in 2019 than I am about Alabama Democrats and Socialists.

We have enough Republican cheerleaders. We need leaders who will call out criminality and disloyalty within the party while they boldly advance a Republican agenda. Montgomery Republicans who do that will get my vote. Otherwise, I am going to do what US Senator Shelby did in last year’s special election for the US Senate. I will write in the names of Republicans who please me more than the GOP nominees.
