7 Things: Tuberville reveals names of those leading ‘dimentia-ridden’ Biden; Birmingham’s mayor has no ideas; and more …

7. CBS Sports ranked the Texas-Oklahoma “Red River Rivalry” as the top SEC rivalry, despite Texas and Oklahoma joining the SEC less than a week ago and the game never being played as an SEC matchup. This ranking placed it above the Iron Bowl, widely considered the best rivalry in college football and an iconic part of the SEC. This makes about as much sense as the Texas Longhorns’ Independence Day post with the Statue of Liberty throwing the horns.

6. U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) criticized the Biden administration’s electric vehicle mandate, arguing it will exacerbate inflation, increase costs for American families, and harm the agricultural sector, calling for the rule to be withdrawn immediately due to its unrealistic and burdensome nature. Meanwhile, Alabama keeps throwing state money at these programs as well with Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey awarding $11.2 million to expand electric vehicle charging infrastructure along the state’s interstates, aiming to support the growing number of EVs and enhance convenience for drivers.

5. A “Live PD”-like program for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office will be airing on CBS-42 called “Jefferson County Cam Watch” on July 13 at 6:30pm through Aug. 24. This is not the first time the cameras have followed Jefferson County’s deputies, with “Live PD”  being on the scene for a crash in Birmingham’s Five Points West area were chasing a suspect with warrants. This show will provide a first-person view of deputies working to prevent crime and make arrests with Sheriff Mark Pettway emphasizing the show’s role in recognizing deputies and bridging the gap between law enforcement and the community.

4. State Sen. Garlan Gudger (R-Cullman) is under treatment at UAB hospital following a serious jet ski accident on July 4th at Smith Lake. Gudger had multiple injuries, including fractured vertebrae, ribs, a punctured lung, and internal bleeding. He expressed gratitude to bystanders, first responders, and medical staff for their lifesaving efforts. Gudger is in the ICU and is focused on recovery, acknowledging the support and prayers from his community.

3. Another “bloody, deadly week in the city” for Birmingham as even aldotcom’s top racial grievance-monger is actually close to being right and suggesting the killers need to be dealt with but frames it under some nonsense about how the bad guys have to be “sick of dying.” Mayor Randall Woodfin, who embarrassed himself last week, has decided that they will begin blocking off certain streets today: “Safer Streets is designed around an historic neighborhood that has all of these entrances and exits points, to decrease them to limit and decrease the opportunity for people to just drive in and commit illegal activities,” and in a silly move the concrete barriers will be painted by neighborhood residents.

2. With Democrats openly fearing a mentally deteriorating President Joe Biden as the leader, a new boogeyman must be creating for them to run against, the answer has come in the form of Project 2025, the Heritage Foundation’s blueprint for “Assembling the staff for the next conservative President with over 110 orgs for victories through policy, personnel, & training,” but Trump has disavowed the project as a whole. The organization itself has made it clear it speaks for no campaign. That doesn’t matter though, the American media has received their marching order and they are out in force with article after article screaming that Trump=Project 2025, even if he says he doesn’t agree with it totally or knows what it is. Additionally, every Republican everywhere must answer to it and if they say they like some of it and don’t like some of it, they are reminded they have to own it.

1. Alabama’s U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) is absolutely convinced that it is only a matter of time before President Joe Biden calls it a day and believes the race we will see is actually between former President Donald Trump and Vice President Kamala Harris, citing President Biden’s perceived poor performance and lack of control. Tuberville criticized Biden’s capacity, calling him a “dementia-ridden” puppet controlled by other Democratic leaders, who he names as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), former President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, and the so-called “Deep State.”
