Alabama Tea Party talk show host and failed politico busted for meth trafficking

Published

on

A Tuscaloosa conservative talk show host and former Tea Party candidate for state legislature was arrested and charged with manufacturing and trafficking crystal meth on Friday.

According to AL.com, attorney and The John Fisher Show host John Fisher, Jr. was arrested when police found him and another man in possession of two “one pot” methamphetamine labs.

Fisher, 48, a native of Columbus, GA, was arrested along with Christopher Shane Rushing, 42, by agents of the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force on Friday. Agents seized some 369 grams of “meth oil” in the raid, which is the liquid skimmed off the top of a “shake and bake” batch of methamphetamine once the drug separates from the toxic stew of ingredients used to make it.

“The investigation began when agents were informed that a suspect dropped off a backpack containing items believed to be components of a methamphetamine lab to an unreleased location,” wrote AL.com’s Erin Edgemon. “Agents observed a second man arrive at the location and then exit carrying the backpack.”

Officers followed the second man to the 1600 block of Tuscaloosa’s Greensboro Avenue, where they seized the items and made arrests. Fisher’s law office is located at 1609 Greensboro Avenue.

Fisher is the host of a conservative talk show that promises, “Plain Talk, Easily Understood with NO Political Correctness.”

In 2010, Fisher ran for office as a state legislator, appearing at multiple Tea Party rallies alongside embattled Alabama Justice Roy Moore. He lost the primary election to Republican Bill Poole.

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks on Wednesday denied under oath knowing anything about the hush-money scheme set up by former Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen to pay off President Donald Trump's former mistresses.

"Hicks told lawmakers today that she did not have knowledge during 2016 campaign of hush-money payments made in run-up to election," reports CNN's Manu Raju. "Also she wouldn’t discuss what she learned about those payments during her time at White House because of immunity claims."

Trump’s 2020 campaign strategy is familiar: Troll the libs!

Published

Late on Tuesday, I got an email from an unusual source. A reporter for the conservative publication the Washington Examiner asked if I'd be interested in sharing thoughts on Joe Biden's history of joking "about 'locking up your daughters'" and on "Biden's view of women and gender relations." This was in light of my previous criticisms of Biden's apparent condescension towards girls and women, and his pockmarked history on gender relations in general.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) blasted Joe Biden for praising two segregationist senators he'd served with as a lawmaker.

The former vice president and current Democratic presidential frontrunner reminisced about his relationship with Mississippi Democrat James Eastland and Georgia Democrat Herman Talmadge, two notoriously racist senators during the Civil Rights era, reported The Hill.

“At least there was some civility, we got things done," Biden said, recalling that Eastland had never called him "boy." "We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done, we got it finished."
