WHEREAS, California’s attempt to influence public policy in our state is akin to Tennessee expressing its disapproval of California’s exorbitant taxes, spiraling budget deficits, runaway social welfare programs, and rampant illegal immigration;
WHEREAS, Tennessee is pleasantly surprised that California will not be sending its economic development teams to Tennessee to recruit our businesses, but we can still send our teams to recruit their businesses
Last week, California decided to show nationwide its LGBT tantrum by official travel ban to eight states whose LGBT laws it deems too conservative — among them Tennessee.
Here’s the official response from Tennessee legislature:
SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION 111
A RESOLUTION relative to state travel bans.
WHEREAS, California has passed legislation banning state-sponsored travel to Tennessee and certain other states; and
WHEREAS, the ban stems from legislation enacted by Tennessee that allows counselors to refer patients to other counselors who can better meet their goals, which the California State Legislature has judged to be morally reprehensible; and
WHEREAS, California’s attempt to influence public policy in our state is akin to Tennessee expressing its disapproval of California’s exorbitant taxes, spiraling budget deficits, runaway social welfare programs, and rampant illegal immigration; and
WHEREAS, Tennessee is pleasantly surprised that California will not be sending its economic development teams to Tennessee to recruit our businesses, but we can still send our teams to recruit their businesses; and
WHEREAS, Tennessee is puzzled why California thinks it is a good idea to prohibit its state colleges and universities from participating in athletic competition in Tennessee (March Madness comes to Memphis this year via the South Regional), Kansas, Mississippi, and North Carolina; and
WHEREAS, this type of ban, the result of legitimate disagreements about government policy, is neither persuasive nor productive for either party and will lead to economic warfare among states, as one sovereign entity attempts to tell an equally sovereign entity how to conduct its affairs by restricting travel thereto; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we urge the other forty-eight states to refrain from imposing their unfounded moral judgment on their sister states as California has done in order to prevent escalating foolishness.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a certified copy of this resolution be transmitted to the National Conference of State Legislatures, the Council of State Governments, and the American Legislative Exchange Council and that a certified copy of this resolution be sent electronically to each member of each state legislative body in the nation, so they may also consider taking action against this type of blackmail.

An employee at Dollywood – the Dolly Parton-owned Tennessee theme park – shared an amazing discovery on Facebook Tuesday after severe wildfires tore through the Gatlinburg area.
The wildfires left at least four people dead and destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses.
Isaac McCord was cleaning up debris along with co-workers when he noticed a single, burned Bible page under a bench. Incredibly, the page included a verse from Joel 1:19 mentioning fire:
“O Lord to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field. The beasts of the field cry also unto thee: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.”
Dollywood to give $1,000 per month to families who lost everything in wildfire

PIGEON FORGE (WATE) – Dolly Parton’s The Dollywood Foundation announced Wednesday it would be giving $1,000 per month for six months to families who lost everything in the wildfires.
“It’s a very big dream at this scale, but I think you know Dolly is the chief of big dreams,” said Dollywood Foundation’s David Dotson.
Parton issued a statement on the foundation’s website saying she was starting the “My People Fund” to help provide a hand up to families affected by the fires.
We want to provide a hand up to those families who have lost everything in the fires. To aid in their recovery effort, the Dollywood Foundation will provide $1,000 a month to all of those families who lost their homes in the fires for six months so that they can get back on their feet.
The site also provided a donation link and said more information will be forthcoming on Friday. People from all over the country have donated to the fund. As of Friday, the fund has already raised more than $1 million.
“There was never a question if something should be done, but what should be done,” said Dotson. “The world is responding in a big way.”
Any family, whether they own or rent, whose primary residence was destroyed or is uninhabitable due to the wildfires is eligible for assistance. A pre-application is available at http://www.dollywoodfoundation.org. Completion is not required, but is encouraged to expedite the distribution process.
The first funds will be distributed from December 15-16 and December 19-20 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the CARE MORE Assistance Center at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge. One check per household per month will be issued. All recipients must show a photo ID and families can receive aid for up to six months. Anyone needing help with the application process should call 1-800-DOLLYWOOD.
Dozens of people are trapped inside the Gatlinburg Park Vista Hilton Hotel as smoke and flames from a wildfire lick the building (center). Thousands of tourists and residents have fled the Great Smoky Mountains while the fires rip through Eastern Tennessee. Locals report cars bursting into flames, the sky brown with smoke and flames closing in on homes around the resort towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge on Monday. Motorists clogged the roads after the Gatlinburg Fire Department ordered the mandatory evacuation of the town at just after 6pm, as strong wind conditions fanned the flames making the fire increasingly unpredictable and dangerous.
From 70 NEWS: According to NBC’s FAKE election results with Hillary as the WINNER, they claim she would get a 42 million popular votes. FROM THEIR RIGGED DATA, THEY WANT HILLARY TO WIN BY 2% AND IF SHE WINS BY TWO PERCENT YOU CANNOT QUESTION THE RESULTS. THIS IS TREASON!
Obama got 64 million votes in 2012, which means NBC knows Hillary has 22 million votes less than Obama in 2012. Romney got 60 million votes in 2012, considering he campaigned to lose and didn’t have the enthusiasm American people showing Trump today nor the crossover from Democrats and minorities.
There is one way to stop this voter fraud. As Trump voters vote in large numbers, the masses of Trump voters will overwhelm the fraud and Trump will win by a landslide. On November 8, 2016, it is very possible Trump may win by over 13 million votes. It is now up to the Trump votes to turn out in massive numbers and win. The people committing this fraud are afraid they will be caught and tried for TREASON. They are afraid. Fear can make them fall apart and be afraid to continue with the plan of voter fraud. As Trump says, one people under our God, Jesus Christ, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, IN GOD WE TRUST, and pray that God not allow voter fraud to stop a Trump landslide win on November 8, 2016.
( INFOWARS ) A NBC station was caught posting election results showing a Hillary Clinton victory days before the election, fueling concerns that the mainstream media is conditioning the public to accept a rigged election favoring Hillary.
Political activists discovered a hidden web site for WRCB out of Chattanooga, Tenn. showing election results with Hillary Clinton securing 343 electoral votes and 42% of the popular vote.
