    The U.S. Attorney's Office in Denver said Thursday 17 of the people charged have been arrested and three remain at-large. Authorities say warrants conducted in the southern Colorado towns of Cotopaxi and Westcliffe led to the seizure of 1,000 marijuana plants, 50 pounds of dried marijuana, and 28 firearms. Sheriff offices in Custer and Freemont counties helped execute the warrants Tuesday.

This time a teenager took several bullets to the legs. Despite 11 entry and exit wounds, the 15-year-old made it mid-block along 800 block of Findlay Street before he collapsed.

    MILWAUKEE (CN) - Dollar General fired a man convicted of possessing graphic child pornography, only to have Wisconsin officials upbraid it for discrimination, the store claims in court. The Vonnegutian tale appears in a petition filed Thursday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court by Dolgen, the parent company of a Dollar General on South 27th Street that hired Michael Ionetz as its manager in May 2010. One month on the job, Ionetz was charged with 22 counts of child pornography, Dolgen says. The company's complaint gives a sickening account of the data that the state claimed to have found on Ionetz's...

    A 17-year-old Park View High School sophomore was fatally shot Friday morning as he walked to his bus stop, and fellow students spent the day on lockdown as authorities investigated. Danny Centeno-Miranda, who fled violence and poverty in his native El Salvador in 2013 to live with relatives in Virginia, was about a mile from the Loudoun County school when he was shot. Loudoun sheriff’s officials said they believe that the assailants knew Danny but did not offer details. They were searching for suspects into the evening. Danny’s uncle, Porfirio Baires, who welcomed the teenager into his Sterling townhouse, said...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton and her family personally paid a State Department staffer to maintain the private e-mail server she used while heading the agency, according to an official from Clinton’s presidential campaign. The unusual arrangement helped Clinton retain personal control over the system that she used for her public and private duties and that has emerged as an issue for her campaign. But, according to the campaign official, it also ensured that taxpayer dollars were not spent on a private server that was shared by Clinton, her husband and their daughter as well as aides to the former president.

    Former Gov. Martin O'Malley is calling for the United States to accept at least 65,000 Syrian refugees by the end of next year. O'Malley, a Democratic candidate for president, made the statements after reports of the deaths of a Syrian woman and her two sons who drowned during a voyage from Turkey to Greece, in attempt to escape the war-ravaged nation. Images of the 3-year-old boy's body washed up on a beach, and other images of hundreds trying to board trains in Hungary, have focused world attention on the desperate wave of migration.

Bobby Jindal hit Donald Trump on the front-running presidential candidate's response to the ongoing debate about the jailing of the Kentucky clerk who refused marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Trump had discussed the punishment Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis faced for disobeying the law on MSNBC. "I hate to see her put in jail," Trump told MSNBC. "[But] the Supreme Court has ruled. That's the law of the land." Sensing an opportunity on the campaign trail, Jindal rebuked The Donald in a series of tweets, exclaiming, "You can't make America great again by throwing Christians in jail.""I understand...

Trump’s alleged “vendetta against the press,” i.e., Trump’s willingness to take Fox News host Megyn Kelly to task for asking unfair questions AND Univision political activist Jorge Ramos to task for rudely interrupting his press conference. The proud Islamist also excoriated Trump for the “absurd, uninformed or just plain incorrect” statements — all of them in fact correct —...

    From the moment he walked onto the Republican debate stage in Cleveland, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has been Donald Trump's most relentless critic. He has called him a "fake conservative," a "chameleon," a man who "buys and sells politicians." Long before former Florida Jeb Bush hit Trump with a video of his most liberal statements, Paul had his campaign team on the case. Yet in a Friday interview with Michael Smerconish, first spotlighted by Mediaite's Matt Wilstein, Paul got a chance to mock Trump's stumbling "commander in chief interview" with Hugh Hewitt. He did not take it. Instead, he defended...

During the interview, Clinton refused to apologize for setting up a private email server — an issue that her presidential campaign hasn’t been able to shake.

    Texas high school students taking the SAT have posted the lowest scores in more than two decades, showing decreases across the board and mirroring a nationwide decline. The College Board, which administers the college entrance tests, reports that Texas students in the Class of 2015 averaged 486 on the math section of the test — down nine points from the previous year — and 470 in reading, down six points. A perfect score in each section is 800. Writing scores averaged 454, off seven points. The Texas scores mirror declines nationwide, although other states haven't dropped as much.

One of the issues that separated Brat and Cantor the most during the campaign was immigration. Cantor was an outspoken supporter of the Senate’s Gang of 8 bill, which was reviled by immigration hawks. Though the bill was ultimately unsuccessful, his constituents’ displeasure with it resonated strongly at the ballot box the following November. Brat...

In the last Alabama poll, Trump was supported by 30 percent of voters, and the real estate mogul’s eight point boost could possibly be attributed to his recent trip to Mobile (38.8).

The entire continent of Europe is being inundated with refugees at a rate unprecedented in world history. This is no longer just a “refugee crisis.” This is a hijrah. Hijrah, or jihad by emigration, is, according to Islamic tradition, the migration or journey of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to...

    In 2004, 75% of Kentucky voters passed a State Constitutional Amendment restricting marriage to one man and one woman. On Thursday, Sept. 3, County Clerk Kim Davis was sent to jail by U.S. District Judge David Bunning because she refuses to issue “gay marriage” licenses, a decision which she says is rooted in her strong Christian faith. The judge told her that she’ll stay in jail until she’s willing to change her mind -- and go against her conscience and faith. He said that he’d review the situation in a week. The judge said that he jailed her because fining...

    As a defiant Kentucky clerk sat in jail Friday, choosing indefinite imprisonment over licensing gay marriages, her lawyers approached the microphones outside and compared her to Dr. Martin Luther King.Around the country, other supporters reached for Biblical heroes, comparing her to Silas and Daniel, imprisoned for their faith and rescued by God.It’s precisely the narrative gay rights advocates had hoped to avoid. But as Davis’ mug shot rocketed around the Internet, it became clear that the gay rights movement must battle the idea that Christianity is under siege, said Kenneth Upton, senior counsel for Lambda Legal, a law firm specializing...

  • Did Louie Gohmert just lay down the Gauntlet? ~ Vanity

    Listening to Sean Hanity on my local station (delayed). Louie Gohmert is guest hosting. He said he would NOT run for re-election if the Senate would consider Obama's Iran deal an actual treaty. That is a gutsy move, but considering Obama that is really safe bet they would never consider it an actual Treaty. He also told the establishment this would be their best chance of getting rid of him in the house. I am fine with that, If Cruz becomes prez, Louie would make a fine Texas senator!

    Apparently Jeb Bush’s focus on “The Donald” has become quite personal. Bush is said to be “deeply disappointed” that the media and corporate attacks on Mr. Trump have only made the outspoken billionaire’s appeal to voters that much stronger. It is a political dynamic for which Bush political operatives are increasingly confused and concerned over. Those concerns were said to be given some salve in the form of assurances from Bill Clinton during a personal call he had with Jeb Bush two days earlier. While most of that conversation remains private, Jeb did share with others that the former president...
