Nashville Billboard Reminds Us That In Trump’s America We Love Our Troops And Our President…

Despite hundreds of billions of dollars in accumulated anti-Trump media attacking the Trump White House for the last two years, President Trump remains extraordinarily popular among tens of millions of patriotic American voters. The reason is simple. Donald Trump, for all his supposed flaws, loves his country and its people. That’s it, and for so many who suffered eight years of a former president who despised all things American, that’s all it ever needed to be…

Tenn. Rep: ISIS should be allowed to recruit at state universities

Free Republic

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A state lawmaker from Knoxville said Wednesday that ISIS should be allowed to recruit at the University of Tennessee and other state universities during discussion about a bill protecting free speech on college campuses.

The bill, called the “Tennessee Student Free Speech Protection Act,” is sponsored by Rep. Martin Daniel (R-Knoxville) and would require the governing boards of Tennessee higher education institutions to adopt a policy on freedom of speech and expression. Martin said during a subcommittee meeting that he believed students’ free speech had been diminished due to unfair policies.

Nashville Police Refuse Secret Service Illegal Search of Obama Critic

Freedom Outpost
Following the resignation of Secret Service Director Julia Pierson, Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson sent a letter to the House Oversight Committee stating that Secret Service agents has asked Nashville police officers to falsify an illegal search warrant against an unnamed critic of Barack Obama, who allegedly posted “threatening” comments about the criminal-in-chief in January 2013.

News 5 reports:

The allegations regarding the January 2013 incident are contained in a letter that Anderson sent last week to several members of the House Committee on Oversight. That’s the congressional committee that has spearheaded the on-going investigation into the Secret Service. Secret Service Director Julia Pierson was recently forced to resign as a result of that scandal.

“There’s already a lot of fodder to attack the Secret Service with, and this will be more,” said Rep. Jim Cooper, D-Tennessee, who was among the committee members who received the letter.

In the Nashville case, a Secret Service agent made a frantic call for backup to Nashville police after he and another agent went to the home of a Nashville man, investigating threatening comments on Facebook about the President. The man who posted them had refused to let the agents into his house.

“He shoved the door in our face and went around the corner. Looks like, we’re not sure if he … possibly he had a gun in his hands,” the agent told a 911 operator.

In a letter that he first sent to Secret Service headquarters, the Nashville police chief recounted what happened.

“The resident refused to come outside and shouted back, ‘Show me your warrant,'” Anderson wrote.

So “one of the agents then asked a [police] sergeant to ‘wave a piece of paper‘ in an apparent effort to dupe the resident into thinking that they indeed had a warrant.”

The Constitution meets Politics in Tennessee

The Post & E-Mail

by Sharon Rondeau

According to timesnews.net via the AP, when Maclin Davis, a former Tennessee state representative, Legal Counsel for the Tennessee Republican Party and practicing attorney asked  State Speaker and Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey  whether or not he believed Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen, Ramsey responded:  ““I’ve got a table full of advisers sitting over there, and they’ll probably start cringing right about now when I start talking about some of this stuff…I don’t know whether President Obama is a citizen of the United States or not.  I don’t know what the whole deal is there.”

The question arose at a meeting of the Nashville Republicans’ First Tuesday Club held on February 2, 2010.  According to the Nashville Scene, Mr. Davis began the exchange by suggesting that a state law be passed requiring that “in all future elections no candidate for president can be put on the ballot in Tennessee unless they produce positive proof they are a native-born citizen.”

Mr. Davis is a partner at the Waller Lansden law firm in Nashville, where he practices in the areas of real estate, business, election law and “constitutional cases.”  He has been admitted to argue in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, according to the firm’s website.

Ramsey, who is running for governor of Tennessee, then said, “But I’m going to tell you something.  When you walk out on the street down here, people don’t really care about this issue.” He contended that state Republicans should concentrate on “jobs, education and fiscal conservatism,” but  then addressed Mr. Davis, “”I’m not saying you’re not right, Mac, I’m not saying you’re not right – but that’s not how you win elections.”

Also according to the Nashville Scene, Davis then commented, “It seems like it would be really good if somebody would file a suit against our present president to get back all the money he’s been paid as president on the grounds he’s not a legitimate president since he’s not a native-born citizen. The great preponderance of the evidence is he’s not a citizen…”

The Democrat response labeled Ramsey’s remarks “a ludicrous idea.”  Chip Forrester, the Democrat Party Chairman for the state of Tennessee, stated, ““Ron Ramsey would rather pander to a far-right wing group of conspiracy theorists than govern in a pragmatic approach that most Tennesseans expect from their political leaders.”

Brad Todd, an adviser to Ramsey, answered the Democrat charge by stating, “You can’t be serious.  That’s totally taking his answer out of context.  The state of Hawaii has already answered that in no uncertain terms and [Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey] made it clear in his remarks that conservatives need to focus our efforts only on POLICY differences with this administration…”

The Post & Email published a related story on the state of Hawaii’s refusal to verify the statements of its own Health Department Director regarding whether or not Obama is a “natural born citizen.”

Tennessee: GOP’s Ramsey says he’s unsure of Obama citizenship

Chattanooga Times Free Press

ERIK SCHELZIG, Associated Press Writer

NASHVILLE, — State Senate speaker and gubernatorial candidate Ron Ramsey said Tuesday he doesn’t know whether President Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen, but that it’s not an issue that voters care about.

Ramsey was asked after a speech to a Republican group about his views on the president’s citizenship by Maclin Davis, a former state lawmaker and attorney for the state GOP.

“I don’t know whether President Obama is a citizen of the United States or not,” Ramsey responded. “I don’t know what the whole deal is there.

“But I’m going to tell you something. When you walk out on the street down here, people don’t really care about this issue.”

Focusing on issues like the president’s citizenship distracts from the Republican message on jobs, education and fiscal conservatism, Ramsey said.

“When we get off on sidelines like that, that’s when people say ‘aw,’ they close their ears and don’t listen,” Ramsey said. “I’m not saying you’re not right, Mac, I’m not saying you’re not right — but that’s not how you win elections.”

State Democratic Party Chairman Chip Forrester was quick to denounce Ramsey’s comments.

“Ramsey would rather pander to a far-right wing group of conspiracy theorists than govern in a pragmatic approach that most Tennesseans expect from their political leaders,” Forrester said in a release. “Why in the world would Mr. Ramsey even entertain such a ludicrous idea when our state is facing tough times?”

Ramsey’s main opponents in the GOP primary include U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp of Chattanooga, Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam and Memphis prosecutor Bill Gibbons. None could immediately be reached for reaction to Ramsey’s comments.

Theories that Obama was born abroad abounded during the presidential campaign, even after an official Hawaii birth certificate was produced, along with August 1961 birth notices from two Honolulu newspapers. Numerous lawsuits and emergency appeals were lodged challenging Obama’s eligibility to be president, and all were rebuffed by the courts.

The Constitution states that a person must be a “natural-born citizen” to be eligible for the presidency. The so-called “birthers” contend that Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate is a fake, and say he was actually born in Kenya, his father’s homeland.

Davis, the attorney who raised the question after Ramsey’s speech, suggested that a lawsuit should be filed to force Obama to pay back the salary he has earned as president.

Even before responding to Davis, Ramsey acknowledged that he could be causing some unease among his political staff.

“I’ve got a table full of advisers sitting over there, and they’ll probably start cringing right about now when I start talking about some of this stuff,” he said.
