Well, as we can see below,  higher education has its problems too.  There is just no way for parents to be too attentive or careful enough in looking at what their students are being exposed to, even in college. I am confident that what this mother observed at VA Tech is not an isolated incident on college campuses today. My […]

Those of you who have been subscribers for some time may remember during the 2018 Legislative Session, how hard we worked and all the obstacles we cleared in order to pass our Anti-Sanctuary City Bill. Without a doubt, the MOST DIFFICULT bill I have ever worked on in the 32 years I have been at the Capitol. Well, guess what? […]

Sanctuary city on the horizon????

on August 31, 2019, 5:39 AM / in State News

Good Morning, It appears that regardless what we do here in Tennessee, the Mayor and the Metro Council are determined to turn Nashville into a ‘sanctuary city’ DESPITE the fact that TN Eagle Forum worked VERY HARD to pass a bill to PROHIBIT Sanctuary Cities in 2018.  In addition, they seem to be giving no attention to the danger this […]

Well, I suspect this won’t start your week off on a high note. This information is troubling on its face, but also troubling that a member of the US House of Representatives is compiling this kind of record. Rep. Ilhan Omar defends 2012 tweet accusing Israel of ‘hypnotizing the world‘ Newly elected lawmaker tells CNN there’s a ‘difference between criticizing […]

They went out from among us?

on August 16, 2019, 10:05 AM / in Religion, State News

This is very unpleasant and I am trying to get my head and heart around what is happening. Clearly, none of us know what is really going on the heart of another, but to see well known, highly visible and followed, people take action like this is just heartbreaking. Heartbreaking for the individuals and their lives and spirits, but also […]

Finally, Someone paying attention

on August 5, 2019, 8:13 AM / in National News, Opinion

  This is an issue in which I have had a great deal of interest for a very long time.  Frankly, it is a very scary issue that no one seemed to be paying any attention to, just going along on their ‘merry way’. In 2015, I was blessed to attend a conference where Dr. Peter Pry, a former CIA […]

Good Morning This is a subject that just keeps popping up, which tells me how important it is.  The Electoral College supports and protects the Representative REPUBLIC  that our Founders intended this nation to be and if it goes away, and the United States becomes a Democracy, we will be done. And for goodness sake, don’t get me started on […]

Well, I know you didn’t need anything else to be concerned about, BUT………….. unfortunately, at this point, it feels like one tsunami wave after another. This is not a ‘new’ issue, per se, but it is once again gaining attention. In fact, in 2010, we introduced a bill to PROHIBIT the requirement for RFID chips as a condition of employment […]

As I  understand it, House of Representatives may soon vote on H.R. 2500 or the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 (NDAA) and the Speier Amendment. Although, the NDAA is necessary to fund our nation’s defense Democrats have insisted on using the legislation to advance their anti-Trump and gender redefining agenda. The NDAA Reauthorization authorizes about $733 billion […]

Good morning  In 2015, one of the hottest battles we had was to trying to REPEAL Common Core. Legislators had ‘gotten the word’ from parents and some teachers and the battle was enjoined. It is too much to go into in this space but it was a delicious experience to observe the fight from the House Gallery. I was sitting […]

If you have been a subscriber for very long, you probably followed the biggest, most difficult battle TN Eagle Forum ever had. It was the passing of the 2018 bill that PROHIBITED Sanctuary Cities in Tennessee. As the process unfolded that year, we measured the importance of our bill by the amount of well-funded and well-organized opposition we received trying […]
