Tennessee Businessman Pulls Ads from NFL Games, Citing ‘Unpatriotic’ NFL Protests

A Tennessee businessman is pulling TV advertisements for his business that air during NFL games for the rest of football season, citing the “unpatriotic” NFL protests surrounding the national anthem. WTVC reports that Check Into Cash founder Allan Jones, a native of Cleveland, Tennessee, is pulling commercials for his businesses—Check Into Cash, Buy Here Pay Here USA, and U.S. Money Shops—for the rest of the NFL season. “Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior! TAKING A STAND…NOT A KNEE!” Jones wrote on Facebook. Other business owners are also taking a stand against those who take a knee during the national anthem. Sports bar owners in Virginia and Louisiana are no longer showing NFL games until NFL players, coaches, and owners stop protesting the national anthem. Fans are also hitting the NFL in the purse by deciding not to watch games. The NFL’s Sunday Night Football experienced record-low ratings for the season because of the teams’ decision to protest.

More and more people, and businesses, are voting with their wallets, and telling the NFL what to go with itself right now.  Here at The Daily Buzz, we support wholeheartedly those taking a stand against those NFL players, and team owners, who are taking a knee to protest out great American flag and our National Anthem.  And, if their self-righteous, arrogant, entitlement-minded, and frankly disgusting actions offend you as much as it does us, we encourage you to NOT spend your dollars on NFL gear, tickets, and other NFL related merchandise until the NFL pulls it’s head out of its collective ass.

Hate Crime Hoax Finds Black Man Posing as Racist White Man in Obscene Letter Campaign

An African American man in Tennessee was arrested for allegedly posing as a local white business owner and writing hoax letters pretending the businessman was a racist who was planning attacks on local black leaders. Police in Knoxville, Tennessee, arrested Justin Lamar Coleman after they say he launched a campaign to discredit businessman Jeff McCown, the white owner of McCown Body Shop in Knoxville, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel. Coleman came to the attention of police after it was reported by recipients that he sent letters to several African American leaders in the area, including Daryl Arnold, the pastor of Overcoming Believers Church in East Knoxville. Police said the letters contained racial epithets and threats of bodily harm toward the African American leaders and were signed as if the body shop owner had written them. One of the letters sent to Pastor Arnold’s daughter that was revealed by prosecutors read, “Tell your daddy Daryl to come to my paint and body shop call (sic) Jeff McCown. I wrote this letter (racial slur) … I hate (expletive, racial slur). I’m coming to your house to rape you. I’m going to get a chainsaw and cut your legs off and then cut your head off, black nasty (slur).” The letter went on to threaten to castrate Pastor Arnold. The hoax letter concluded saying, “I am a very racist white man and with Mr. Trump in the White House being the Prisdent (sic) white people going to take over the world.” It was signed as if the body shop owner had written it. Prosecutors also said there were other such letters allegedly sent by Coleman. Indeed, one was even sent to business owner McCown warning him that someone was going to kill him and burn his house down.An African American man in Tennessee was arrested for allegedly posing as a local white business owner and writing hoax letters pretending the businessman was a racist who was planning attacks on local black leaders.

Mexican nationals arrested in Tennessee on child rape charges

Two Mexican nationals have been arrested in Wilson County, Tennessee on multiple child sex charges, the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office reported on Tuesday. Working with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Marshal’s Task Force, WCSO says 23-year-old Fernando Limon and his brother, 28-year-old Ramiro Limon are each facing four counts of rape of a child. Investigators began working the case in 2015, leading to their indictment. The pair was arrested last Tuesday at an Antioch residence. WCSO detective Walker Woods says the case involved children “considerably younger” than the 13-year-old age limit sentencing guidelines involving adults charged with sex crimes against children. Sheriff Robert Bryan thanked the TBI and U.S. Marshal’s Task Force for “apprehending these suspects on such heinous charges involving our children.” Each is being held on $150,000 bond and face up to 25 years for each count of child rape. They also have a hold placed on them by federal immigration officials since they are not U.S. citizens.

Its just too bad that the death penalty isn’t on the table…as these disgusting animals surely deserve that.  As if you needed another reason..  Please consider this today’s gut-wrenching example of why it is absolutely critical that we BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico.  Then, those troops should remain physically on the border (to prevent other would-be border hoppers from setting one foot on U.S. soil) until that wall/fence is finally built above, and below ground, to prevent tunneling….however long it takes.  Simultaneously, we need to be deporting illegal aliens by the hundreds of thousands (and yes, you read that correctly)…paying particular attention to known gang members, convicted criminal aliens (like these too pieces of garbage), and those already determined by an immigration judge to be deported…regardless of age or gender.  It’s time we stopped being a safe haven for the dregs of the world…and take our country back.

Tennessee to Sue Feds Over Unconstitutional Refugee Resettlement

On Tuesday, the Tennessee General Assembly declared it will sue the federal government over its refugee resettlement program on Tenth Amendment grounds. The State Senate passed a resolution authorizing that lawsuit in a 29 to 4 vote one day after it passed the Tennessee House by a 69 to 25 margin. “Today we struck a blow for Liberty by finally adopting SJR467,” State Senator Mark Norris (R-Collierville), the co-sponsor of the resolution who shepherded it through the State Senate, tells Breitbart News. “The General Assembly clearly understands the importance of public safety and state sovereignty as demonstrated by the overwhelming support of this Resolution for which we are thankful. The Syrian surge heightens our sense of urgency to get this properly before the courts, and we urge the Attorney General to act without delay,” Norris adds. Tennessee, which withdrew from the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program in 2008, will now become the first state to sue the federal government over its operation of the program within the borders of its state on Tenth Amendment grounds. Alabama and Texas are currently suing the federal government over the refugee resettlement program on the narrower grounds that it has failed to comply with the Refugee Act of 1980. “As a state legislator, it is my duty to fulfill my oath and to exercise Constitutional authority,” House sponsor State Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver (R-Lancaster) tells Breitbart News. “I take it seriously to do all I can to protect the sovereignty of our great state. Either we abide by the Tenth Amendment or we ignore it,” she adds. “It’s time for states to say no more federal overreach and [I] really believe that the federal government was created by the states and not the other way around,” Weaver says. “Proud to have been involved in the process. It’s been a long road,” State Rep. Judd Matheny (R-Tullahoma) says..

Outstanding!!  Kudos to these Tennessee state legislators telling Obama and the federal government what it can do with itself.  Obama doesn’t give a damn about our country’s national security.  Between his insane notion of importing thousands and thousands of Syrian so-called “refugees” that aren’t being vetted for possible ties to radical Islamic groups, and his open borders approach to immigration (among others), he has shown that he wants to put everyone and every other country first…and America dead last.  So, it’s refreshing to see states like Tennessee and Texas fighting back.  Excellent!!   🙂

Starnes: Tennessee lawmakers fume over state university’s ‘Sex Week’

Youngsters at the Volunteer State’s flagship university are about to engage in all sorts of debauchery ranging from lessons on male sexual fluidity to a lecture on “butt stuff” from an amateur porn star. Sex Week at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville kicks off April 4 – five days of depravity that makes Mardi Gras on Bourbon Street look like a Sunday school picnic. The star of the show is Sophia St. James, a self-described “queer diesel femme.” St. James will be teaching the boys and girls on Rocky Top how to “explore all the titillating crevices and protrusions of your body.” “Fellatio, cunnilingus, analingus; maybe you’ve heard the word, now it’s time to find out about doing the deed,” reads a description of the Sex Week workshop. The university will also provide testing around campus all week for sexually transmitted diseases – which might not be a bad idea. Organizers of Sex Week told the blog Campus Reform there was great interest from the student body for workshops on bondage, domination, submission/sadism and masochism – not to mention, “How to Drive a Vulva.” “These events are critically important and were chosen based on an overwhelming number of requests from the UT student body, whose feedback we rely heavily upon in selecting our events,” one of the event organizers told the website. Critics, however, are furious – especially state lawmakers and alumni. “The content is horrifically disturbing,” State Rep. Kevin Brooks told me. “The fact that we are using state dollars and state classrooms on state campuses to promote UT Sex Week is unforgiveable.” Lawmakers are advancing a bill that would prohibit UT from using any state money to promote Sex Week. The bill, authored by State Rep. Micah Van Huss, would also strip $100,000 in funding for the university’s office of diversity and inclusion. “These are taxpayer dollars, taxpayer funds,” Van Huss told me. “Frankly, (Sex Week) doesn’t represent the values of my constituents and the majority of Tennesseans.” According to Campus Reform, event organizers are using private donations to pay for Sex Week. Van Huss said his phones have been ringing non-stop from angry alumni and citizens. “They are embarrassed by their alma mater and that sends a pretty powerful statement,” he said. Over the past few years, a number of national controversies have given the university a black eye – most recently an “unofficial” recommendation from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion that campus Christmas parties avoid the Baby Jesus and Santa Claus. “Ensure your holiday party is not a Christmas party in disguise,” the university office warned. And in the fall of 2015, the vice chancellor for diversity and inclusion recommended that the campus use “gender inclusive” pronouns. Lawmakers have pleaded with the university’s administration to fix the problem – but so far – their pleas have fallen on deaf ears. “We are absolutely shocked that this continues after repeated requests directly to the UT administration to cease and desist,” Brooks said. “If the administration of the university system is not going to listen – we are going to legislate. And we are going to represent what our voters want.” Van Huss was even more to the point. “I don’t trust the University of Tennessee to fix this,” he said. “I don’t want to micromanage the university, but when they have shown again and again and again that they are incapable of fixing it on their own – I’ve got to step in.” So hang in there, taxpayers. State lawmakers are about to get to the bottom of “butt stuff” and they promise to rectify the situation. -Todd Starnes is host of Fox News & Commentary, heard on hundreds of radio stations.

Wow..

Tennessee bill would ban students’ gripefest over mean talk unless there’s real threat

Students at Tennessee’s public colleges and universities would not be able to tattle on classmates who merely say mean or offensive things to them under a bill being considered Tuesday by the state Legislature. The Tennessee Student Free Speech Protection Act would ban the schools from establishing systems for students to report bias incidents that don’t involve actual threats or harassment, according to The College Fix. It would also bar schools from punishing students for so-called “micro-aggressions,” instances where people take great offense at a subtle or even unintended slight. “The best kind of educational environment is one where there’s a lot of controversy and conversation about various issues, and we encourage students to speak up,” state Rep. Martin Daniel, a Knoxville Republican who introduced the bill, told The College Fix. “We want our students to be prepared for the real world, and those classes of speech that might be considered micro-aggressions just happen in the real world.” Freedom of speech has been under a microscope at colleges across the country, as student groups demand “safe zones” from which speech deemed offensive is banned and reject the kind of contentious debate that was once an academic tradition. The Tennessee law, which is to be taken up Tuesday by the Education, Administration and Planning subcommittee, would prohibit schools from “punishing, disciplining, or censuring students for the content of students’ lawful speech by way of or through any of the faculty, employees, or organizations of the institution.” Campus leaders would be required to protect students’ rights to peacefully assemble, and prohibited from restricting free speech to designated zones. The bill allows schools to prevent unlawful or defamatory speech, as well as speech that impedes education or breaches privacy or confidentiality. A university also may prevent speech in certain locations at publicly specified times so long as it is from a content-neutral position, according to The College Fix. Daniel worked with the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education in drafting the legislation, and also relied upon the Chicago Principles, a statement produced by the Committee on Freedom of Expression at the University of Chicago last year. The principles affirmed the importance of the freedom of expression on college campuses. Other universities have adopted similar principles. Washington state has a similar bill to Tennessee’s currently pending, and Virginia and Missouri have laws banning free speech zones, according to FIRE. If passed, the law would go into effect July 1, 2016.

How great is this?!?  Let’s hope it passes, and that this becomes a trend across America!  Excellent!!    🙂

 

Bible undamaged after SUV bursts into flames on Tennessee highway

An SUV caught fire and exploded on a Tennessee road Sunday, causing nearly everything in the vehicle to be destroyed except a Bible left untouched in the front seat. The Memphis Police Department responded to the scene around 2:30 p.m. Sunday when the Jeep Laredo left Tennessee State Route 385 and went up in flames after it was swiped by another vehicle, Fox 13 Memphis reported. A witness to the crash, Eugene McNiel, told Fox 13 he was only about 20 yard away when he saw the car clip the Jeep and jumped out of his truck to help. “I didn’t care. I wanted to save that man’s life because I don’t want to see (anybody) get burned up in (a) car,” he said. Officials told Fox 13 a Memphis police officer and several nearby motorists were able to pull the trapped driver out of the burning vehicle before it exploded, and later recovered the undamaged bible. “That is God,” McNiel told Fox 13. “You don’t believe? (Then) I don’t know what to say.” The driver of the Jeep was transported a nearby hospital with non-critical injuries.

Great story!   🙂

Black Lives Matter Banned from Nashville Library for ‘Black Only’ Meetings Policy, Blames ‘White Supremacy’

Nashville Public Library officials informed Nashville’s chapter of Black Lives Matter members that the group’s “open to black and non-black people of color only” meetings policy is prohibited on public property. “The library didn’t cancel anyone’s meeting,” library spokeswoman Emily Waltenbaugh said after Black Lives Matter members moved their Saturday meeting to a church located a mile away. “We’re taxpayer funded. We have to be open to anyone any time.” In a fit of rage, Black Lives Matter Nashville leader Joshua Crutchfield announced the group’s meeting cancellations and reassured members that “white supremacy won’t stop this movement.” Crutchfield continued to make it clear that his Black Lives Matter chapter just wants to hold meetings in what he calls black only or non-white “safe spaces.”

Wow..   The hypocrisy by Black Lives Matter is truly breathtaking.  Just fathom if there had been a “White Lives Matter” organization (just fathom that!  lol) that didn’t allow black people to attend their meetings at the local library.  These black racist hypocrites would go apes__t, and we ALL know it!!  Then, Obama would send his Attorney General (AG) along with scores of FBI agents to interview (translated, interrogate) the locals.  Al Sharpton would show up with MSNBC, Jesse Jackson would show up with his “monochrome” coalition, and you can bet the New Black Panther Party (a domestic terrorist organization) along with these same Black Lives Matter losers (also a domestic terrorist organization by ANY definition) would all be raising holy hell…and we’d hear about it for months.  But, when the shoe is on the other foot, and they’re getting told THEY have to allow whites to attend any meetings in a public facility like the library in order to comply with federal and/or state laws, it is they who say that the library is being “racist.”  Huh?!?  What a bunch of self-righteous, hypocritical, entitlement-minded, black racist losers!!  Anyway, to read the rest of this nauseating article, and see the Tweets from these losers, click on the text above.

Starnes: Tennessee courts reverse ban on ‘mother’ and ‘father’

The Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts reversed a controversial decision to replace the terms “mother” and “father” with “parent 1” and “parent 2.” “After receiving feedback regarding a recent change made to the permanent parenting plan form, the AOC has reviewed the procedures and determined that, before making any changes to the form, the AOC should consult with the Domestic Relations Committee of the Tennessee Judicial Conference,” the office said in a statement. ” We have reverted to the previous form and the Committee has been notified.” “We have reverted to the previous form and the Committee has been notified,” the statement continued. Shortly after the Supreme Court redefined marriage, the state’s Office of the Courts had revised its documents. A spokesperson for the courts confirmed earlier that the words “Mother” and “Father” had been replaced by the terms “Parent 1” and “Parent 2.” I was alerted to the gender-neutral parenting documents by Kendra Armstrong, a family law attorney in Memphis and one of my longtime readers. “Why are heterosexual parents having their rights violated?” she asked. “So now it’s improper and inappropriate in a court of law to refer to a parent as a mother and a father? The court spokesperson did not elaborate on why they felt compelled to change the longtime wording or whether Parent 1 brings home the bacon or whether Parent 2 wears the pants in the relationship. “It’s absolutely ludicrous to make the term mother and father obsolete,” Armstrong told me. “Quite frankly, the terms ‘Parent 1’ and ‘Parent 2’ seem more offensive than mother and father. It’s implying that one parent is the first parent and the other parent is secondary.” Armstrong said she was incredulous when her paralegal discovered the document changes – shocked that something like this would happen in, of all places, the Bible Belt. “This is political correctness gone absolutely amuck,” she told me. “It’s just ridiculous.” It’s not the first time the government has tried to redefine traditional family roles. In 2011 the State Department removed the words mother and father from U.S. passport applications. The State Department released a statement at the time noting that the changes reflected “improvements” that were being made to “provide a gender neutral description of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.” Brenda Sprague, the deputy assistant Secretary of State for Passport Services, said the changes had nothing to do with political correctness. “We find that with changes in medical science and reproductive technology that we are confronting situations now that we would not have anticipated 10 or 15 years ago,” she said. Sounds to me like they’ve got an issue with old-fashioned baby-making – back when it took a mommy and a daddy to make a bundle of joy. I know, I know. It’s old-school. But no matter how hard the Supreme Court and the cultural revolutionaries try to redefine what God defined – it still takes two to tango – ahem. As for attorney Kendrick, she said she plans on ignoring the court-mandated changes – no matter the consequences. She plans on replacing all references to “Parent 1” and “Parent 2” with the words “mother” and “father.” “I am exercising my right to free speech, freedom of religion and I am being a conscientious objector,” she declared. “I refuse to go to court with a parenting plan that refers to Parent 1 and Parent 2 instead of mother and father.” On a side note – I suggested in my latest book that the true motive behind the gay marriage activists was to deconstruct the traditional American family – hence the ban on mommy and daddy. I reckon it’s only a matter of time before Tennessee completely conforms to the demands of the gender-neutral crowd and begins referring to children as “Thing One” and “Thing Two.”

Todd Starnes, ever the culture warrior, nails it again! Glad to see the great state of Tennessee reverse this ridiculous, politically correct, ban on “mother” and “father.”

Expert: Chattanooga Proves That Military Must Rethink Gun-Free Zones

After gunman Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a Muslim immigrant from Kuwait, allegedly shot and killed four Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee, former NYPD detective Harry Houck said the military’s “gun-free zone” mindset has to change. Speaking to CNN Newsroom, Houck said, “I’m a Marine. And this really is hitting me a little harder here than normal that [these Marines] weren’t able to protect themselves at the time this occurred.” “We need people that are armed,” he added. He also said that even if that means getting armed guards, then so be it; something has to change. The Tennessean reports that Abdulazeez pulled in front of a recruiting location, shared by various military branches, and shot holes through the “doors and glass… [of] the… Air Force, Navy and Marine offices.” He allegedly did this while sitting in his car. Ironically, one of the earliest post-attack photos of the recruiting center shows shattered glass and bullet holes by the very sign that designated the office a gun free zone.

Yeah…ironic.  It is inexcusable that active duty military personnel are not permitted to carry firearms on federal installations.  It’s a ridiculous Dept of Defense (DoD) regulation that needs to be done away with once and for all.
