Raid an Office?

»Posted by on Apr 10, 2018 in Announcements, Slideshow, Words from the Chairman | 0 comments

So Trump’s atty’s offices were raided bright and early Monday morning. Since then, the political world has gone bananas. The faithful viewers of CNN are salivating at the prospects that the raid will lead to indictments against Trump, while the right is going ballistic at the apparent violation of lawyer-client privilege. I don’t think that either is accurate. Here’s what I’ve been able to glean from all the reports I’ve read. If there’s evidence that an atty is acting in an unethical manner, whether on behalf of his client or himself, his offices can be raided. An atty cannot skirt the law, abuse the judicial system, or conduct business in an illegal manner and hide behind the cloak of attorney / client privilege....

Angry White Democrat

Angry White Democrat

If you haven’t heard by now that Rep. Scalise and other republicans were shot today by a gunman who reportedly fired anywhere from 30 to 60 rounds ( depending on the report), you need to get out from under your rock. Thankfully, Capitol Police were able to neutralize the shooter before an absolute slaughter took place. And as I write this, it’s reported that the shooter is now taking his eternal dirt nap. But that’s not why I’m writing this. Initially, few in the media speculated on the shooter or his motive. But the Washington Post found a Face Book page that apparently identifies the shooter as an angry white democrat who posted on his page –among other things — that “Trump is a traitor. Trump has destroyed our...

Glenn Jacobs for Knox County Mayor

Glenn Jacobs for Knox County Mayor

Many of you are familiar with Glenn Jacobs. He’s a staunch, unapologetic conservative, and an expert on economics. When he’s not working as a professional wrestler under the name Kane, he hits the speaking circuit talking about the Constitution, government, and economics.     A few years ago, he and his wife opened Jacobs’ Insurance in Knoxville, and has since opened a second office.     Glenn is passionate about constitutional government at all levels. Unlike a lot of us, he looked in the mirror and decided that instead of complaining about our politicians, he must jump into politics with both feet and be the kind of politician that we all want to see. So he jumped.     Glenn recently announced his candidacy for Knox County Mayor. The story is...

The Republicans Did It To Us

The Republicans Did It To Us

In my earlier email, I said I’d do some research on how our representatives voted when debating the fuel tax increase. The following is an email that our Vice Chairman is submitting to the Mountain Press. In Liberty, Steve Osborn SCTP Chairman Dear editor, The full TN House of Representatives debated Governor Haslam’s IMPROVE Act, now called the Tax Cut of 2017 ( an oxymoron ), on Wednesday. The Act as proposed will raise fuel taxes on everyone who drives a vehicle, while reducing taxes for a select few in the state and giving certain Tennessee businesses a financial boost. Representatives Carr and Farmer voted in favor of the bill. Representative Hawk from the Greenville area then proposed an amendment that would have taken a portion of new and used...

More on the Proposed Gas Tax

More on the Proposed Gas Tax

Senate leadership stated over the weekend that any alternate plan to Haslam’s gas tax increase is a non-starter. The House, being a separate chamber, is working on their own plan that will fund TDOT without raising taxes, in spite of what Senate leaders say. Both chambers are set to go to Joint Committee within the next couple weeks to hammer out the differences between the two proposals coming from their respective bodies.  It’s not out of the realm of possibilities that the House will capitulate, and approve Haslam’s original gas tax plan. Mark West, leader of the Chattanooga tea  party, has written a letter that will go to every republican in Nashville. ( That letter is at the end of this email, minus the signatures.) In Turn, Mark sent an...

Farm Bureau members – READ THIS

The facebook post below is Rhedona Rose the VP of the Tennessee Farm Bureau’s response to a long time customer on the issue of Farm Bureau’s support of the gas tax and in state tuition for illegal aliens. Apparently Farm Bureau cares more about illegals than long time citizen customers. Call your local farm bureau and complain at least or cancel if feasible and let them know why! Number to Farm Bureau HQ is 931 388-7872. I’m having trouble finding the leaders emails but you can ask to speak to Mrs. Rose, the President Jeff Aiken or the policy director Stefan Maupin. This was sent by Becky ****** and she posted itOn Mar 31, 2017, at 11:31 AM, Since I have been a member since 1970 of the Obion County Farm Bureau, I feel that it is my duty to ask...
