7 Things: War is near; many in Alabama delegation fault Biden’s ineptness in the Middle East; and more …

7. As annoying as Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs’ Travis Kelce’s relationship will be to actual football fans during the Super Bowl build-up, there is no evidence that the NFL was plotting to get the Chiefs into the game, despite what former presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is saying. Ramaswamy suggests the game was rigged and the Swift/Kelce team will endorse President Joe Biden: “I wonder who’s going to win the Super Bowl next month. And I wonder if there’s a major presidential endorsement coming from an artificially culturally propped-up couple this fall.”

6. With high energy prices continuing to plague Americans and those around the world, the decision to stop the construction of new liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals by the Biden Administration makes little sense but climate change activists needed a win. U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) and U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) are part of a large number of Republicans calling out this absurd decision-making process with Tuberville stating, “It would be reckless to jeopardize our advantage, especially in a world where energy is frequently being used as a geopolitical weapon.”

5. U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a favorite of conservatives across the country, has now endorsed two Alabama Republican representatives for re-election, including one who has another Republican congressman running against him. After endorsing Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) over the weekend in the First Congressional District race against Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile), he also endorsed Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) saying, “everyone who cares about America needs to be engaged in helping Gary Palmer go back to Congress and helping Donald Trump get back to the White House so we can save America.”

4. An Alabama judge has been arrested for misusing $50,000 in public funds by allegedly hiring his son, purchasing trips, and spending money on items such as guns, a sofa, eyeglasses, alcohol, and kitty litter. The judge allegedly paid himself with public funds for trips that included trips to the beach, Michigan, Montana, and a cycling trip across multiple states as well as some trips he did not take to places like Nevada, Florida, Michigan, and inside Alabama as well.

3. According to Alabama State Treasurer Young Boozer, Birmingham-Southern College doesn’t fit the parameters for a loan from the state of Alabama, many banks apparently agree. But this won’t stop some of Alabama’s biggest frauds from demanding the school be saved by the state even if that means government money going to a private religious institution and declaring, with terrible math, that it’s a good bargain for the state while asking nothing of the city and county that benefit most from the school’s existence.

2. Alabama’s congressional delegation has pushed for a swift response to Iran’s support of proxy forces that killed 3 American soldiers in the Middle East and slammed the Biden administration for allowing it. U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) is calling for  “bonecrushing” pressure, U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) blamed President Joe Biden’s weakness for the attack because, “They’re not scared of Joe Biden,” and U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) chimed in as well, “Though Iran may have supported the attack, it was made possible by the weak leadership coming from the White House.”

1. It’s war with Iran’s proxies, everyone knows why this is happening, even Joe Biden’s biggest cheerleaders. Yes, it is authorized and every president since 1991 has used this Authorization of the Use of Military Force (1991, 2001, and 2003) even as most bitched about it while running for office.
