Tennessee Drops Huge Announcement About Sanctuary Cities

This is big!

Published

on

Without question, sanctuary cities are one of the hottest topics facing our nation right now, and with good reason, as these sort of policies end up putting citizens at risk as these places often harbor violent criminals who are in the country illegally.

The state of Tennessee has decided to respond to the hoopla by actually putting it’s own residents first and banning sanctuary cities, a move which is sure to leave progressives across the state in the throes of a massive temper tantrum.

Republican Gov. Bill Haslam told reporters he will allow a bill that passed the state legislature last month to become law, but he is stopping short of signing it.

Under the new law, all localities within the Volunteer State will be banned from adopting policies that prohibit law enforcement officers from honoring detainer requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The bill was approved just before the General Assembly adjourned April 25.

Rep. Diane Black, who is running for the GOP nomination to replace a term-limited Haslam, said she supports the bill.

The state law would ban city and municipal officials from trying to limit law enforcement officers in their jurisdictions from cooperating with ICE. In all national arrests, when a person is taken into custody by local police or a sheriff’s office, his or her name and fingerprints are automatically cross-checked against multiple national background systems.

This is absolutely the right move to make, as it puts the safety of American citizens first and allows the federal government to do it’s job to track and deport those who have entered our nation illegally.

What liberals fail to understand is that without borders you don’t have a country. It’s the same thing as leaving your door unlocked and allowing strangers to come in and take your things and use your resources without any concern for your own survival or your family’s.

Most people would never allow such a thing to happen on a personal level, yet will do so at the national level which is pure nonsense.

We all want immigrants here in America. This nation needs to have the best and brightest minds from all over the world in order to thrive and to provide the rest of the globe with innovation it desperately needs.

However, you have to come here through the proper channels. That’s not a whole lot to ask. Should there be a conversation about the current immigration system and it’s flaws for those who want to come here the right way? Sure. Let’s do that.

But we still need to be a nation of laws, therefore, those who enter illegally need to be sent back home.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
