MONTGOMERY — Even though there are more Baptists than Methodists in Alabama, historically Methodists have held more of the prominent political posts in the Heart of Dixie. If you look closely at these leaders’ lives, a good many of our leaders have been sons of Methodist ministers.
The killing of an Iranian terrorist who was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. servicemen should be a development celebrated by all Americans, but with the Democratic Party determined to destroy the sitting president, that was never going to happen.
Based on a recent report, it appears that the ACLU is more worried about convicted felons than the safety of Alabama communities.
While Iran and the U.S. are both “standing down” from their missile strikes for the moment, how long will this last? Until their next threat or terrorist act? Until they have completely annexed Iraq? Until their next attack on us or our allies?
I appreciated Anthony Cook’s editorial about “Christianity Today’s” failure to cite Scripture in their editorial about Donald Trump (Jan. 2, 2020). And I appreciate Mr. Cook’s statements and the position he has taken. I didn’t vote for Trump either, and I certainly didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.
The National Environmental Policy Act, or NEPA, was signed into law nearly 50 years ago and hasn’t received a significant update since 1986. This legislation was designed to ensure the proper evaluation and protection of the environment before, during and after construction of infrastructure…
MONTGOMERY — Our presidential primary in the Heart of Dixie is less than two months away. We vote on March 3. President Donald Trump will be the GOP nominee. It is a foregone conclusion that Trump will carry Alabama in the November general election.

MONTGOMERY — As is my tradition, as the old year comes to a close, I like to pay homage to legendary Alabama leaders who have passed away. We lost some legends in 2019.

This year’s education scandal saw parents shelling out megabucks to gain college admittance for their children. Federal prosecutors have charged more than 50 people with participating in a scheme to get their children into colleges by cheating on entrance exams or bribing athletic coaches. T…
Nancy Pelosi says the coup against Trump, which the Democrats have labeled “impeachment hearings,” can proceed. Besides the Democrats’ deep-seated hatred of Trump, what facts are they basing impeachment on?
This Christmas season is like past years where there is a bombardment of commercial-selling ads on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, doorbuster sales, bargain deals, and lowest steals. Shoppers are rushing to get the right gifts, thus missing the real reason for the season.

MONTGOMERY — Early speculation on the 2020 U.S. Senate race had state Sen. Del Marsh listed as a potential GOP aspirant. He had considered making a plunge into the Special Election contest for Jeff Sessions’ seat in 2017 but opted out.
