Another Democrat Convicted Of Voter Fraud

Former Bolivar, Tennessee City Council Member Convicted – Knownews

.

.
Prosecutors say former Bolivar City Council member Brenda Woods has been convicted of procuring illegal voters in municipal elections.

Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich says in a news release that Woods was found guilty Tuesday in a McNairy County court.

Witnesses said Woods took them to the polls to vote for her in early elections for mayor and city council in May 2009. They said they told Woods about their felony convictions, but she assured them they could still vote.

An investigation showed the three voters had cast ballots illegally because their voting rights had not been restored.

Woods was convicted on the charges in 2010 but was awarded a new trial on appeal two years later. She faces up to six years in prison at sentencing April 11,

Republican Lawmaker Proposes Bill Nullifying Federal Gun Laws In Tennessee

Tennessee Considers Nullifying Federal Gun Laws – Downtrend

Tennessee State Senator Mae Beavers (R – Mt. Juliet) is on a roll this week. Along with 10 co-sponsors, she introduced “The Health Care Freedom and Affordable Care Act Noncompliance Act” to effectively nullify ObamaCare in her state. Now, she’s taking aim at federal gun-control laws.

.

.
Beavers has introduced Senate Bill 1607 to effectively nullify federal gun laws in The Volunteer State. Under the proposed law:

* Any federal enactment or enforcement actions relating to firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition would be void in the state

* Any federal enactment or enforcement action impacting or infringing upon the rights of an individual or entity relative to firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition would be void

* Agents, employees and public officials in the state and its political subdivisions would be prohibited from carrying out federal gun laws

* Any attempt to enforce federal gun laws would be considered a misdemeanor and subsequent attempts would qualify as a felony

The law, if passed, is set to take effect on July 1. Thus, residents of The Volunteer State could see their Second Amendment rights significantly strengthened in less than six months.

Other states, including Missouri, Virginia and Wyoming, have recently considered similar legislation. And Alaska and Kansas have already signed their own Second Amendment protections into law. However, Tennessee’s proposed law appears to be among the strongest out there with the potential for violators to be charged with a felony.

It seems an increasing number of states are fed up with the Obama administration’s gun-grabbing policies. Will Tennessee be the next one to successfully tell the federal government to back off?

Experts Fear Backdoor Unionization At Tennessee Auto Plant

Experts Fear Backdoor Unionization In Tennessee – Washington Free Beacon

A business’ attempt to collaborate with workers may provide an auto union a long-sought foothold in right-to-work Tennessee, which experts suggested could end up hurting employees.

.

United Auto Worker Region 8 director Gary Casteel claimed that a majority of the 2,500 workers at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga manufacturing facility had signed card check forms, which would grant the union exclusive representation rights at the facility.

This wasn’t a typical example of a union organizing: It was the company, not the union, that raised the issue of giving workers a voice in the plant’s operations.

VW, a German company, approached the Tennessee manufacturing plant earlier this month, hinting that it would not receive additional investments if it did not establish an European-model works council to represent employee interests.

“When I toured the Chattanooga plant and spoke with workers, I found little evidence of any job dissatisfaction… all anyone could talk about was the number of applicants and how lucky they felt to have such a good job,” one auto analyst told the Washington Free Beacon on condition of anonymity.

Works councils provide employees with direct representation to management in worker safety and plant operations. They differ from American unions in one respect, according to Lipscomb University economics professor Richard Grant.

“Works councils are meant to be cooperative to help companies head off problems by addressing employee grievances, they’re not adversarial like the American union model,” he said.

VW, which refused to comment for the story, was pressured by IG Metall, its UAW-managed German union, for the work council at the plant, according to an auto industry analyst.

The company could get more than they bargained for, as the UAW has hijacked the process.

While the UAW’s Casteel has touted its presence to media and employees as a “new labor model to the U.S.,” many labor and car experts see it as backdoor unionization.

For example, U.S. labor law prohibits employers from talking to employees directly about workplace conditions and problems during union elections. A works council would cease to function if the UAW decides to pursue an organization drive at the plant. VW would no longer be allowed to address worker issues in that case, according to former National Labor Relations Board member John N. Raudabaugh.

The UAW did not return requests for comment.

“VW is aspiring to this collaborative system and the UAW is wearing this Halloween costume that they don’t have an adversarial history,” he said. “The UAW doesn’t understand this foreign system and the employees haven’t been given the time to gather information to make a decision about the potential negatives.”

The potential negatives are numerous, according to Grant.

One of the reasons that VW’s Tennessee plant has flourished, while the company’s Pennsylvania facility floundered, is because of the former remained free of union ties.

“Automakers were looking for a labor force that was more willing to work and less adversarial – they were freer than the UAW workforce in Michigan,” said Grant, a Tennessee resident and former union member.

“The reason they came here is the better business environment and worker attitude. The big danger is that the UAW will spread to other [local] auto plants and the union ends up holding car companies hostage like they did in Detroit.”

The auto expert said that is a very real possibility if UAW succeeds in hooking the Chattanooga plant.

VW has dedicated millions in resources to expanding operations in countries with terrible track records for workers rights, including China, India, and Russia. The high costs associated with UAW labor contracts could drive jobs overseas.

“VW is [already] planning to build new Audi products in the NAFTA region. If Chattanooga goes UAW, it’s almost certain that VW will follow other automakers and send those new jobs to Mexico,” the analyst said. “That indicates to me that if Chattanooga unionizes it would be unlikely to benefit from future product expansion. So the real loser here wouldn’t be Volkswagen, so much as American workers.”

Unionization may end up hurting workers, but it would help the reeling UAW, according to Glenn Taubman, an attorney with the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation.

“They’re a failing union and the only growth in the auto industry is now occurring in right-to-work states, not the traditional union places like Detroit,” he said. “They need to go to places like Tennessee because that’s the only way they’ll survive.”

AG to enforce Sharia now?

Seems like a headline that is too crazy to believe. Just too over the top right? Maybe, unless the Obama administration is involved, I mean, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, spying on the press, using the EPA to attack businesses, using the IRS to intimidate political opponents, arming the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, what is a little Sharia down America’s throat.

 

You just knew this was coming, didn’t you?

DOJ: Social Media Posts Trashing Muslims May Violate Civil Rights

In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights.

The move comes a few years after the administration became the first in history to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personally reassure Muslims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is dedicated to protecting them. In the unprecedented event, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates) that urges members not to cooperate in federal terrorism investigations that the “us versus them” environment created by the U.S. government, law enforcement agents and fellow citizens is unacceptable and inconsistent with what America is all about.

Yeah, because no administration knows what America is about like Team Obama right?

…Evidently that was a precursor of sorts for an upcoming Tennessee event (“Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society”) that will feature the region’s top DOJ official [Bill Killian], who serves as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and an FBI representative. The goal is to increase awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles, according to a local newspaper report. The June 4 powwow is sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee.

The area’s top federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, will address a topic that most Americans are likely unfamiliar with, even those well versed on the Constitution; that federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

Time will tell as to what comes of this, but just in case you want to know what a “violation” of Islamic Law might be Doug Ross has a list of no no’s

Again, where the Hell WERE these women when I was 12?

The Other McCain offers up a very sad tale of a 42-year-old woman, an ex NFL cheerleader, who has some deep isues maybe even the dreaded Cougaritis!

Jeff Gurner at Viral Read reports the disturbing story of the woman who was arrested for making advances on a 12-year-old boy:

Elizabeth Leigh Garner, a former Tennessee Titans cheerleader, was indicted last week on charges of aggravated sexual battery and solicitation of a minor for child rape.
The 42 year-old denies the allegations and told police “that she was drunk that evening and that she got the boy confused with a man that was also at the residence.”
According to the Mufreesboro police report, the boy stated“she was asking him if he had ever been with a woman,” and that Garner then touched him “on the outside of his pants” and made “an attempt to take his shorts off” while offering to “perform oral sex on him.”

Well, if being drunk were a valid defense against criminal charges, there would be a lot fewer people in prison, but given the description of her actions in the police report, does anyone buy this over-the-hill NFL cheerleader’s excuse that she was “confused”?

Confused? Or depraved? Depends on your outlook I guess. By the way how the Hell did Stacy know what I was thinking?

It is routinely expected that lots of guys reading this will react by saying, “Where were these sexually aggressive NFL cheerleaders back when I was an adolescent fantasizing about them?” We are all reminded of that famous scene in Animal House where the Playboy Bunny comes flying through the kid’s window: “Thank you, God!”

Damn! It is like he read my mind. But, he does make a great point. Sometimes fantasy should stay in the fantasy world. Unless of course hookers with duct tape and hockey masks are involved, but enough about my college years.

Yet there are reasons why sexual fantasies – lust for things that are abnormal or taboo — are best restricted to the realm of fantasy. Sexual taboos serve a social purpose; the indulgence of what advocates of sexual liberation call “transgressive” behavior inevitably leads to trouble.

Stacy goes on to describe how the Slippery Slope of Depraved Kinky Sex, another term I invented, can go from just weird to terribly wrong very quickly. True dat! By the way, look for my new book, Baby Oil and Cougars: A Beginners Guide to ex-NFL Cheerleaders and the  Slippery Slope of Freaky Sex, due out in the Summer

Gee I wonder why this story did not make the 24-hour news cycle

Hmmm, never heard this story of a school shooting, in Tennessee. Maybe because it does fit the narrative? ViaTN Smart Girl

The following incident happened at a high school only minutes from my home in East Tennessee. I am sure that no one outside of our immediate region has ever heard the story, because the only person who was shot-and killed-was the gunman. These types of stories don’t fit the narrative of those who want “gun-free zones” and so are ignored by the national media. In this case an armed Security Resource Officer, Carolyn Gudger, became a local hero and saved an unknown number of lives by holding the gunman at bay until backup arrived. The text below is drawn from a local news website, Tricities.com. The story is not viewable on mobile devices, probably because it is so old. If you wish to view it on your PC, here is the link: http://tinyurl.com/ckqfcvf

So, the media only cares if kids are killed? Or do they just want to fuel the Liberal lie that armed security cannot prevent these crimes? And YES, Fox, where the Hell were you?

 

If you want to understand why the South fought, let Generals Lee and Jackson explain

Clip from the movie Gods and Generals which is an incredibly accurate film. Pay close attention to why Virginia seceded, the same reason Tennessee, Arkansas, and North Carolina seceded. They no longer wished to be part of a union held together by “force of bayonet”. I use these clips because Robert Duvall and Stephen Lang were masterful as Lee and Jackson in the film

And from another clip from the film, Stonewall Jackson lays it out very clearly

Here is a piece on the character of both Lee and Jackson
