    Texas-El Paso, Missouri, Baylor and North Texas came calling, but once they took a look at him in person, all said, "No thanks." He received one scholarship offer, from Houston. There, in Kliff Kingsbury's spread offense, all he did was throw for more yards and touchdowns than any player in NCAA Division I history.The Texans cut him that fall and re-signed him to their practice squad, where he spent the whole 2012 season. It would be the first of three times he was cut. He also has been traded, for a seventh-round pick.

    HOUSTON – A pair of Salvadorian immigrants in the country illegally are accused of a gruesome series of crimes. The pair, alleged members of the criminal gang MS-13, are accused of kidnapping a 14-year-old and holding her for weeks. The suspects have been identified as 18-year-old Diego Alexander Hernandez-Rivera and 22-year-old Miguel Angel Alvarez-Flores. The teen eventually provided the evidence which links the men to the murder of another unidentified teen whose body was found dumped on the side of a Houston road two weeks ago. New details about how the teen was found shot to death in southwest Houston...

    Khalid Sheik Mohammed: George W. Bush's Shock and Awe Response to 9/11 Prevented Other Attacks Far from trying to draw us in, KSM said that al-Qaeda expected the United States to respond to 9/11 as we had the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut — when, KSM told Mitchell, the United States ‘turned tail and ran.’ ‘Then he looked at me and said, ‘How was I supposed to know that cowboy George Bush would announce he wanted us ‘dead or alive’ and then invade Afghanistan to hunt us down?’’ Mitchell writes. ‘KSM explained that if the United States...

    George Soros’ direct involvement in spreading the unrest in the United States triggered by the recent victory of Donald Trump amid the US elections is hardly a secret to anyone now. A financial analyst of Live Trading News, Paul Ebeling, is convinced that the Clintons, who both received millions of dollars in campaign contributions and Clinton Foundation donations from George Soros, were, in fact, helping to launch Soros’s Purple Revolution in America.

    No matter which way you spin this, this is not good news for Hillary Clinton. We all know that she has had by far the worst week in her life, and yes, I believe that in her mind, this past week even dwarfs the scandals she faced in the 90s. The corruption that has bubbled up to the surface can no longer be denied, not even by the Main Stream Media, which has up until this point been in the tank for Hillary. We are witnessing a full blown retreat of Democrats in the last stretch of this election cycle,...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hillary Clinton's defense against charges that she has lawlessly handled classified information in her emails, and by using her private email server, has been that the FBI performed a complete investigation and found no violation of law. This morning, thanks to investigative reporting by the Wall Street Journal1 and Fox News2, we may understand why the FBI dropped the case. Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, a Clinton confidant, directed almost $800,000 into the political coffers of the wife of this high-ranking FBI official overseeing the email investigation.

    HOUSTON -- Houston-area Islamic groups joined a nationwide campaign to denounce terrorism, Local 2 reported Friday. The public service announcements hit the airwaves Thursday. The campaign is called "Not in the Name of Islam." CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, released it to build understanding. "Muslims are not only victims of the terrorists attacks but also have to deal with the stigmatization of being blamed for the heinous crimes of a minuscule minority." Said Rodwan Saleh, with the Islamic Society of Greater Houston. Houston's Islamic leaders joined together to applaud a religious ruling against terrorism and religious extremism. "We want...

    Five Egyptians yesterday were nabbed in a New Jersey apartment with New York subway maps, a video of Big Apple landmarks and $8,000 in cash after a tipster told cops one was related to infamous 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta. But police said the men — all illegal immigrants working "menial" jobs — did not appear to be part of any terror cell, although they had not yet fully explained why they had the items in the Newark home. One of the men was identified as Ahmed Mohamed Atta, 30. But there is no indication he is related to the fiend...

    The news out of Pinellas Park, Florida breaks the hearts of all decent people. It should shake us to the core. Terri Schiavo is dead, intentionally deprived of food and water, with the force of the raw power of government holding the hands of the executioners. She was killed deliberately, by starvation and dehydration. No Court, Legislative body or Chief Executive had the courage to stop this killing. She was deprived of her substantive due process rights by every branch of government. Terri was not dying. She was not receiving any “extraordinary medical treatment.” She was being fed and given...

He shouted and stomped on the sideline, then smiled when his team's lead hit 40, 50, 60 points.

He drew plays in the air with his fingers, and the girls learned them so well they could win games without any coach at all. His sport's biggest icons - Geno Auriemma,...

    Don't Be Surprised When Iraqi WMD Found April 20, 2004 I don't know if you heard about this, because it has not been widely reported. Terrorists linked to Al-Qaeda were poised to detonate a chemical bomb in the heart of Amman, Jordan, that would have killed 20,000 people and contaminated a large area. King Abdullah praised Jordan's intelligence service for foiling a crime never before seen in the kingdom of Jordan. The target was a headquarters of the general intelligence department on a hill in Amman. King Abdullah was to be in America to meet with President Bush, but decided...

Former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad told The Associated Press in an interview that Malaysia stopped one shipment years ago of stainless steel pipes at Washington's request. "We didn't know where they were headed," Mahathir told The AP. "They didn't...

    Worried about Sandra Robert Novak January 10, 2004 | WASHINGTON -- Republican joy over a federal court approving congressional redistricting in Texas was diminished by an opening in the decision that could give U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor a chance to reverse it. The Texas three-judge panel's warning of "excessive partisanship," Republican lawyers fear, will give O'Connor the opportunity to join with four liberal colleagues for another 5 to 4 decision against conservative interests. O'Connor, a former Republican leader of the Arizona Legislature who was President Ronald Reagan's first nominee for the high court, was the swing justice...
