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.

Hate at 8!!

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.
