Life in Davidson County means: TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION at the hands of #TNGOP. Blue Nashville & Memphis are the 💰 engine driving red TN. 🔥

Maybe you should’ve asked the Secretary of Energy in charge when the company began licensing to a Chinese company? williamsonherald.com/news/pe…
Why on Earth is a federal department, funded by our tax dollars, handing over intellectual property to the Chinese Communist Party? npr.org/2022/08/03/111496424…

Rand Paul went on Fox News and said the FBI may have planted stuff in the boxes to “entrap” Trump. Rand said it with a straight face — and without any evidence to support his lie. Two weeks ago, Ukraine listed Rand Paul as an official Russian propagandist. It all makes sense now.

Reminder that TN’s senior Senator @MarshaBlackburn has defended Flynn over and over again.

Flynn-backed plan to transfer nuclear tech to Saudis may have broken laws, say whistleblowers Investigators fear President Trump is still considering the plan, which was pushed by Flynn and Trump friend Tom Barrack. nbcnews.com/politics/congres…

Says a woman who hasn’t had a town hall meeting since 2017.
Why did FBI Director Christopher Wray leave the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing early on Thursday? Because he wanted to go on vacation to run away from the American people.

A blue checkmark account tweeted an image that included: "Elias has a rope with his name on it and knows it." I reported to @TwitterSafety and they said "after reviewing the available information, we want to let you know [account] hasn’t broken our safety policies."

The teacher was told to remove images of notable Black American leaders, like former President Obama, from his classroom because they were deemed "age-inappropriate". This is what's fueling Florida's teacher shortage. pnj.com/story/news/local/esc…

Think we are exaggerating by calling them extremists?! Here they are urging our new county DA to prosecute Teachers and Librarians. And she’s all too happy to entertain it. That really ought to lift the morale of our educators as they head back to school this year. 📚😖
📚WATCH: “Do you feel like there should be some kind of prosecution for these librarians?” In May, Coty Wamp made it clear prosecuting librarians is on the table, and said she brought Moms for Liberty to meet the sheriff. She was just elected Hamilton County DA. @NoogaHoller

Crazy how the most qualified applicant for TN attorney general always happens to be the Governor’s lawyer! What are the odds?
Jonathan Skrmetti will be the third Tennessee attorney general in a row who served as the governor's legal counsel immediately before the state Supreme Court picked them to be AG. Slatery served as Haslam's counsel and Bob Cooper as Bredesen's. tennessean.com/story/news/po…

Being lawfully investigated for misuse and handling of classified documents (amongst other things) is OUTRAGEOUS. But being unhoused for any number of circumstances …LOCK’EM UP! Republicans are sick and twisted lunatics.

Nightmare for Tennessee: Jonathan Skrmetti, member of infamous extremist organization “Federalist Society” has been named the state’s attorney general. Prepare for a lot more tax money directed to lawsuits aimed at making life harder for trans kids. tennessean.com/story/news/po…

Maybe the deal being negotiated will get approved & maybe it won't. But the folks working on it should make it clear they are proposing the largest public spend on a stadium ever in America & make the argument about why it makes sense. Here's my fix for today's story:

The Tennessean is fundamentally wrong in how it describes the state laws passed in '21 & '22 related to stadium financing. Today's story is wrong in the direction of soft-selling what looks to be largest state/local stadium spend ever in America.

For the record: “Nashville” didn’t do this. Our progressive city initiatives get overturned by TN’s radical right legislature constantly.
Across Tennessee, pitching a tent on public land outside of designated camp sites is now a felony offense. cnn.it/3QkXNgM
