By Steve Hunley Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, perhaps the most outspoken anti-Semite in Congress and erstwhile member of the Democrat “Squad”, has issued a new jeremiad calling for “no more” policing.  Tlaib declared policing in the United States is “inherently and intentionally racist.”  This coming from a rabid anti-Semite.  Pot, meet kettle.  Tlaib called the shooting […]

By Steve Hunley Some Time Republican Former Knoxville mayor Victor Ashe has openly called for a primary challenger to oppose County Commissioner Kyle Ward.
