7 Things: Trump gets some wins but suffers a lawfare setback; gambling compromise seems less likely every day; and more …

7. The Birmingham Public Library continues doing the things that will turn regular people against a place that is a meant to be about books and places for homeless people to pee but have turned into groomer’s paradises. The PUBLIC library has had 3 “Loud in the Library” events and each one included vulgar trans-themed acts while insisting no one is coming for your children while other libraries objected to Kirk Cameron and Riley Gaines reading children’s books in the library.

6. President Joe Biden lies a lot, in fact, his “origin story,” relayed under oath to Special Counsel Robert Hur is obviously dubious, and that lying may be another criminal act that he will almost assuredly get away with. Biden lied about his legal work, lied when he talked about “the only time I ever lied,” and fabricated an entire story to about his move from a law firm that screwed a welder (the welder won), and how it led him to quit, but none of the story is true as pathological liar Joe Biden was a junior in college and was getting bad grades while failing for plagiarizing in his tort class.

5. The Alabama Republican supermajority seems ready to “invest” in childcare, which really means creating and expanding tax credits for working families. State Sen. Garland Gudger (R-Cullman) explained in a column at Yellowhammer News, the tax credits will go to 3 different entities, “1. businesses that offset child care costs and provide support through stipends, onsite facilities, or reserved spots at licensed centers 2. child care providers participating in quality improvement programs, encouraging them to improve their standards and enroll more children, and 3. nonprofit providers who expand capacity and improve quality.”

4. Democrats and Republicans are taking different tactics in the State House District 10 election Democratic candidate Marilyn Lands pushing abortion and gun control and GOP candidate Teddy Powell focusing on local matters like roads and infrastructure. A lot of national attention will be granted to Marilyn Lands if she pulls this off while that media will be very disinterested if Powell wins today’s special election in north Alabama.

3. The fretting continues as the lovers and fanboys of “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” (DEI) worry the sky will fall if Alabamians actually stop judging each other by race or funding programs that seek to benefit certain races. aldotcom’s Rebecca Griesbach warns that the changes will be stark but fail to outline any actual catastrophic scenarios because it appears most schools will try to skirt the laws without specifically having DEI offices and funding but notes that students “may feel less welcome.”

2. The warning lights are flashing for anyone that wants a gambling bill passed this legislative session as State Sen. Greg Reed (R-Jasper) says the Alabama State Senate-passed bill is a great bill. With statements like this, it appears that changes made in a conference committee would be a hard sell in the state senate, which put forward the least bad, bad bill.

1. Former President Donald Trump picked up a couple of big wins yesterday, he had his appeal bond reduced from $455 million to $175 million, while also gaining $3 billion in net worth because of Truth Social’s stock price increasing marking his biggest ever single day of net worth growth. Not all good news for Trump though, the attempt to delay a “hush money” case involving Stormy Daniels failed and a court date is now set for April 15.
