Tennessee: An All-Volunteer Force for Common Sense

March 2, 2021Tony Perkins

In one of the more colorful descriptions of the Equality Act, Senator John Kennedy (R-La.) told reporters that he doesn’t believe in discrimination against anyone but said, “this bill guts religious freedom… like a fish. And anybody that’s suggesting otherwise is either not telling the truth, or they didn’t graduate from kindergarten.” While he and the rest of the GOP brace for the bill to hit the Senate, the good news is, the states aren’t waiting. They’re racing to put up shields of protection now.

In Tennessee, liberals are getting a taste of just how unpopular their radical agenda is becoming. Days after the U.S. House decided to strip girls of sports, privacy, rights, and religion in the Equality Act, the Volunteers sent a message of their own. With one of the biggest vote margins yet, leaders sent a bill saving women’s sports out of the state senate by a 27-6 vote. “To say it’s not a problem in Tennessee may be true, but it will be a problem in Tennessee probably sooner than we think,” state Sen. Kerry Roberts (R) warned.

Legislators seemed to agree, including some who refused to back the proposal last year. A handful of members switched sides, acknowledging that the march to include biological boys is gaining steam. “To deny that it’s a problem is to deny reality,” Roberts agreed.

There were the predictable arguments from the Left — fears over what the corporate culture would do and how the decision would impact tourism. “We’re looking at events like the Super Bowl, we’re looking at the World Cup in 2026. We all love our NCAA basketball tournaments, [and] all three of those organizations have said they will seriously consider not bringing their events to locations that have discriminatory laws on the books,” a local Chamber of Commerce CEO cautioned. Fortunately, most leaders chose to look past those threats to the real issue: fairness, opportunity, and safety. If the Left wants to hold states hostage for refusing to bow to their transgender agenda, fine. Let them explain to America why they want to strip women of the programs that they fought decades for. Or why our daughters’ futures are a worthwhile trade for a few rounds of March Madness revenue.

The more the mob pushes, the harder conservatives are starting to push back. At this point, what do they have to lose? Sixty-four percent of Americans are already worried the cancel culture is destroying their freedom. And if the last few weeks are any indication, the last thing they’re going to do is roll over and let it. Even Republicans who might have been reluctant to tackled the issue before are starting to openly challenge this ridiculous idea that transgenderism is good for kids. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) went toe-to-toe with Joe Biden’s nominee for assistant secretary of HHS, who wouldn’t even give a straight answer on whether he thought children should be sterilized without their parents’ knowledge. The fringe called Paul a “transphobe.” The rest of the country called him courageous.

These are the kind of leaders who are going to make a difference in the growing number of states trying to fend off this onslaught. Will the pressure keep coming? Absolutely. But, as Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) said at CPAC, “You know what? The Leftists, the Democrats, the radical progressives, they can go ahead and crank up the heat seven times hotter. We’re going through with Jesus, and we’re coming out not even smelling like smoke. We are not going to be singed by the radical flames of this cancel culture.”

So join the team who refuses to be canceled. Contact your state leaders and urge them to protect kids from this dangerous movement. Then, email your senators and tell them to vote no on the Equality Act.

Israel Reportedly In Talks With Gulf States To Form Four-Nation Defense Alliance

The Jewish State is reportedly working with the Gulf States to form a military defense agreement amid growing Iranian aggression; This potential military pact is taking place at a time when the US is moving towards returning to the Iran nuclear deal.

As the United States continues to take steps to renegotiate with the Islamic Republic of Iran concerning the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran nuclear deal, Israel is reportedly now in talks with multiple countries in the Gulf region. The report surfaced with Israel’s i24 News, stating that Israel was pursuing a “defense security alliance” with Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The officials who communicated with i24 did not confirm nor deny the report, but they did reaffirm that Israel is consistently pursuing more effective ways to better its relationship with nations in the region.

While the Jewish State normalized its diplomatic ties with Bahrain and the UAE in 2020, there is currently no official ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia. However, wherever the relationship currently stands, the Saudi Kingdom shares at least one major thing in common with Israel right now, and that’s the ever-growing aggression of the Iranian regime.

Tehran has been advancing its nuclear program in an aggressive manner over the last several months, violating multiple terms of the JCPOA. Furthermore, the Republic has threatened the Gulf region numerous times following its normalization of ties with Israel.

Democrats

I think it’s time for the Democrats to shut the mouth sit down and leave it alone. They’ve stolen the election now they’re trying to destroy Donald J Trump. But beyond that they’re coming after you and me especially if you are a conservative.we used to have a first amendment in this country, but I’m not sure it works anymore. We are not just on a slippery slope there’s a banana peel underneath our heel. Prayer and wisdom as what we need now more than anything else. Praying protection over all patriots in this country because you never know who’s watching you or what might happen.

Trump 48 Biden 47

This uber mensch, this super man, has withstood four years of relentless attacks and continues to subject himself to unimaginable daily abuse, smear, libel. He never backs down, cowers or kneels. No, he thrives because he is fighting the righteous fight — for you, me — for America.

A vote for Trump is a vote for America. A vote for Biden is a vote for America’s most vicious enemies.
