Tennessee National GuardNashville, TN – In the early morning hours of March 3rd, a storm system moved through the state of Tennessee which produced deadly tornadoes killing 24 people, damaging over 1,500 structures and leaving over 80,000 Tennesseans without power across four counties.

Marsha Blackburn: Here’s how to Stop Cancel-Culture Mob, Violent Anarchists from remaking our Country

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – I’ve always said that our goals inform the paths we choose. You can tell a lot about a person—or, a political movement—by how they choose to persuade the masses.

Ask yourself, what do their tactics look like? Are their tactics effective, if peaceful? Or, are their efforts repression dressed up as resistance? Once you figure that out, you can get a pretty good idea whose side they’re on.

If you’re looking for a perfect example of the latter, look no further than Chattanooga, Tennessee, home of Shuford’s Smokehouse.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Shootings, Other Crimes Spike in the Poorest Neighborhoods When Cops Pull Back

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “If there’s one lesson from the unrest and anti-police agitation in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, it’s that poor minorities living in distressed neighborhoods pay the highest price—in fear and in blood—when the cops retreat and the worst elements feel emboldened,” Rich Lowry writes in National Review.
 
“The spikes in shootings in cities around the country haven’t taken place in high-end neighborhoods . . . No, they blight the most marginal neighborhoods and make everyday life a hazard for people who have no option but to live in a tough place.”

Independence Day letter from Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett

 

Montgomery County Government TennesseeMontgomery County, TN – Happy 4th of July Montgomery County!

As we approach the birth of America’s independence, I would like to share a few things that have been on my mind lately.

First, let me start with COVID-19 Coronavirus. That’s probably been on everyone’s mind lately. Today, our numbers are not trending in the direction they need to trend. Although our number of positive tests to overall tests is below 4%, our results for the last 14 days are moving in the wrong direction.
