State Legislators Seem Poised To Extend Protections From Covid Mandates, But There Is A Catch. (Gary Humble Op-Ed)

Bills Have Begun To Be Filed For The Upcoming Legislative Session Here In Tennessee Due To Commence On January 11, 2023, Which Will Begin Our 113th General Assembly. One Of The First, SB 2 (Sen. Jack Johnson) And HB 2 (Rep. Jason Zachary) Will Remove The Termination Date On Protections From Covid Mandates, Currently Set To Expire On July 1, 2023. Many Tennesseans May Not Realize That Current Laws Restricting Employers From Mandating The Shot As A Condition Of Employment And Restricting Schools From Requiring Masks Are Due To Sunset. Your Legislature Passed Laws To Secure Your Liberties, With An Expiration Date. Go Figure. The Passage Of SB 2 And HB 2 Would Make These Protections Permanent. And That Is A Good Thing. However, There Is A Catch. With The Passage Of Title 14 In The Special Session Of October 2021, The Legislature Did More Than Protect Employees. They Also Protected Themselves.

The Establishment Strikes Back: Purging The MAGA Agenda In Tennessee (Op-Ed)

Tennesseans Deserve Better Republican Leaders. More Accurately, Tennesseans Deserve Leaders Who Actually Represent The Republican Platform And Republican Voters. The RINOs Have Made It Clear That They Want To Purge Conservatives From The TRP. I Say, Turn The Tables. It Is Time For Tennessee Conservatives To Eradicate RINOs. The Establishment Can Buy Influence With The TRP Through Campaign Contributions And PAC Support. To Overcome This Advantage, The Grassroots Must Mobilize And Use Our Superior Numbers To Demand Change. This Means Forming Conservative Groups, Recruiting Primary Opponents, And Getting Engaged In Every County Across The State Of Tennessee.

Tennessee Stands And The Tennessee Conservative News Have Proven That Conservatives Can Move The Needle Through Grassroots Activism. Rather Than Be Discouraged By My Election Nullification And The Attempted Cancellation Of Gary Humble In Blount County, We Should Use These Events As A Rallying Cry. Tennesseans Fought Valiantly At The Alamo. Sam Houston, Who Grew Up In Blount County, Defeated Santa Anna’s Army At The Battle Of San Jacinto, Just As Andrew Jackson’s Militia Forces Vanquished The British Army Led By Major General Edward Pakenham At The Battle Of New Orleans. It Is Time For Tennessee Conservatives To Show The Establishment What Volunteers Can Do When Provoked.

Tennessee Right-To-Work Amendment Deserves A Bit Of Review Before You Head To The Polls (Op-Ed)

Let Me First Be Very Clear. I Fully Support The Fact That Tennessee Is A Right To Work State And Has Been Since 1947. I Do Believe That Our Statutes Declaring A Right To Work Have Been Part Of Tennessee’s Success Story Economically And I Believe That Those Statutes Appropriately Limit The Power Of Unions And Protect The Rights Of Individuals Against Discrimination As To Whether Or Not They Are Part Of A Labor Union.

I Am Also Aware That Democrats And The Current Administration In The White House Would Like To Further Solidify The Influence Of Unions Around The Country And Work To Abolish Right To Work Protections In 27 States.

Despite My Support Of Right To Work Protections And An Understanding Of The Threat Unions Pose To Pushing The Leftist Agenda, I Am Cautious When It Comes To Amending Our State Constitution For This Purpose.
