7 Things: Alabama Democrats struggling; Space Command rages; and more …

7. Cable news shakeups continue with CNN losing hours to Newsmax while a Drudge Report story indicates the Fox News primetime lineup will soon be Hannity, Jesse Watters, and “Gutfeld!” but no word for what happens to Laura Ingraham.

6. Montana has completely banned TikTok, the Chinese-government-owned social media app, and hit app stores that make it available with $10,000 fines. The ban does not go into effect until January 2024 but will go to court first.

5. Loitering on a public road could, and needs, to be illegal in Alabama. If Rep. Reed Ingram (R-Montgomery) gets his way it will be. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the Department of Transportation support the bill. This is also called panhandling.

4. A ruling by State Judge Jimmy Poll claims that Alabama Department of Transportation leader John Cooper acted in “bad faith” in his decision to build a bridge in Baldwin County AND attempted to put a company out of business out of spite. If this ruling stands how does Cooper stay employed by Gov. Kay Ivey?

3. The battle for Space Command rages as the official Space Command Twitter account operated by the Department of Defense had liked a tweet from U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) declaring Huntsville the best place for Space Command HQ. Even the lone Alabama Democrat is cranking up the pressure as well, saying, “To change course would be because of politics and not merit” and Colorado’s junior senator is blaming Trump, because what else can they do?

2. Alabama Democrats’ pathetic behavior could give them a case of electoral dysfunction and could cost them a spot on the primary calendar for the 2024 presidential primary. At issue is the dissolving of multiple identity groups that the Democratic National Committee requires. 

1. Every dumb cliche imaginable was displayed at a committee hearing on transgender “What is a woman” legislation in Montgomery yesterday as Democrats argued against defining what a man is. There was transgender military veteran Karen who will sink Space Command HQ’s move to Huntsville if you don’t affirm her because she has White House connections, the rocket scientist that says “it doesn’t take the rocket scientist” but totally is one, and the doctor who doesn’t know male from female made an appearance to talk about how gender is “arbitrary biology.”
