  • Teen slain in Fort Worth robbery was caught in crossfire, documents say

    Star-Telegram ^ | july 10, 2012 | DOMINGO RAMIREZ
    FORT WORTH -- Claudia Hidic was desperate for money. On June 24, the 17-year-old former Trinity High School student began hounding a 43-year-old Overton Park West resident for cash, selling him an HK .40-caliber pistol for $100 and giving him two laptops as collateral for an additional $100. She told him that she needed the money to get her boyfriend out of jail. The teen returned a few days later asking for $600, but the man refused to give it to her. As he drove home from his job in Dallas on the afternoon of June 28, the resident got...

    What else is he hiding? Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst’s Senate campaign might have just crossed a line it should not have crossed. Who else would be behind the Lt. Governor’s taxpayer funded website for his Lieutenant Governor’s Office suddenly deleting the transcript of a speech proving David Dewhurst has been lying about his position on illegal aliens? The speech is . . . well . . . it is gone. Poof. Again, the website is taxpayer funded and the document suddenly no longer there directly contradicted Dewhurst’s present statements on immigration in the Senate campaign. Now, David Dewhurst adamantly...

    CHICAGO (Reuters) - Seven-year-old Heaven Sutton was selling cold drinks and candy at a street stand with her mother when she was shot to death, becoming the 253rd victim this year of Chicago's surging murder rate, police said on Thursday. Sutton and her mother, Ashake Banks, were about to close up their stand on Wednesday night when two men approached and began shooting. Heaven was shot in the chest, and a 19-year-old man standing nearby was wounded in the leg, police said. "This is not about crime. This is about values. Take your gang conflict away from a 7-year-old," Chicago...

    June 26, 2012 A Statesman in Congress To the Members of the 112th Congress: This Friday marks the 160th anniversary of the death of Henry Clay (June 29, 1852). With only a few years excepted, Clay served in the House of Representatives and the Senate from 1803 until his death almost 50 years later. When he died, he was the most famous American of his day and received many, many eulogies. One of them came from a little-known, former one-term Congressman from Illinois named Abraham Lincoln, who eulogized Clay as "my beau ideal of a statesman." In calling Clay a "statesman,"...

    America is in uncharted territory now that Citizens United has taken hold in the 2012 elections. It has some people questioning whether or not the United States of America is still a democracy. Since the Supreme Court declared corporations human beings (people) in the 2009 Citizens United case, more than U.S. elections have changed. Millionaires, corporations, and secret donor Super PACs are now allowed to spend an unlimited amount of money to influence the outcome of U.S. political campaigns. The majority of Citizens United funding is coming from conservative groups that are backing Republican candidates. With enough negative TV ads...

    Washington Post ^ | June 21, 2012 | Associated Press
    Metals and other commodities fell Thursday, led by a tumble of more than 5 percent in silver, as discouraging news about the economy kept piling up. Both precious and industrial metals fell. Silver priced for July delivery lost $1.55 to $26.839 per ounce. August gold slid $50.30, more than 3 percent, to $1,565.50 per ounce. Silver and gold often move in synch, but silver tends to fluctuate more because of its lower price.

This weekend, Mr. Paul’s backers effectively captured the Alaska GOP, won the Louisiana caucuses and beat out delegates picked by Mitt Romney in Massachusetts, the presumptive nominee’s home state.

    If I Wanted America to Fail, I’d Ban Kids From Farm Work by Sarah Palin on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at 11:27am · The Obama Administration is working on regulations that would prevent children from working on our own family farms. This is more overreach of the federal government with many negative consequences. And if you think the government’s new regs will stop at family farms, think again. My family is a commercial fishing family, and commercial fishing in Alaska is much like the family farm (but the year 'round farmers no doubt work harder than we do!). I guarantee...

While he hit the links, Americans have suffered from high unemployment and a lingering economic malaise with little hope for a prosperous future.

    Triple Pundit ^ | April 6, 2012 | Tina Casey
    As the U.S. transitions out of a petroleum economy, oil-rich Texas is emerging as something of a surprise leader in biofuel research. If the country’s quintessential oil state sees promise in biofuels, that stands as a powerful indicator that the national market is ready, too, even in the case of algae biofuel, which has been greeted with derision in some circles. One main driver of Texas’s vanguard position in the biofuel field has been Texas A&M University, the premier public education and research institution. The school’s AgriLife department has firmly established itself in the forefront of algae biofuel development despite...

    Congress is obligated by statute to pass a budget by October 1 of each year; yet, as of December 22, 2011, it has been 967 days since the Senate last passed a budget (April 29, 2009)!!! Lawmakers have abdicated their duty by funding the government through multiple, consecutive short-term continuing resolutions. In a May 23, 2011 article in The Washington Examiner, Majority Leader Reid is quoted as saying, “There’s no need to have a Democratic budget, in my opinion. It would be foolish for us to do a budget at this stage.” The Examiner article also quotes Chairman Conrad regarding...

The reading was expected to take 12 hours. But after only 3 hours, Democrats in the Senate used a parliamentary maneuver to withdraw the amendment. Coburn and other Republicans complained about the move, because the Senate rules don’t seem to allow the withdrawal of an amendment while it’s being read....

A great video showing this redistribution of wealth started before 2001...as revealed in this radio interview at that time. It is scary how he calls it a tragedy that there was not redistribution of wealth done with the Civil Rights movement.

    This is the first of two stories adapted from "Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency," to be published Tuesday by Penguin Press. EXCERPT: "The United States was at war with al-Qaeda, intelligence-gathering is inherent in war, and the Constitution appoints the president commander in chief.
