    The outspoken Dallas mayor pro tem who balked at the National Rifle Association coming to town earlier this year resigned on Thursday after entering a guilty plea in federal court. The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced that Dallas City Council Member and Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway pleaded guilty to conspiracy and tax evasion charges involving $450,000 in bribe and kickback payments stemming from securing a city school bus stop-arm camera contract for a Louisiana company. The Dallas Morning News later reported that Caraway resigned his public position in the aftermath of the revelations. “I have dedicated much of my life...

    A Florida restaurant decided to cancel its DirecTV NFL package over the controversy about players kneeling during the national anthem to protest social injustices. Curtis West, who co-owns Beef O’Brady’s in Brooksville with his wife Janet, told FOX13 Tampa Bay on Monday there will be no NFL games shown because of the “disrespect” the players have shown. “Last year, with the kneeling and the disrespect to our veterans and our flag and our country, I was very upset,” West told the station. The restaurant will save more than $5,000 by canceling its package and instead will offer veterans 40 percent...

    Federal Appeals Court Judge James Ho chose to use an interesting word in his July 20, 2018 dissent. It’s not in most dictionaries. It sounds like a clinical diagnosis. And it concisely captures the essence of modern resistance to American gun rights. Reporting on the case, Hank Berrien of the Daily Wire explained that hoplophobia is “an irrational aversion to weapons.” Retired Marine Colonel Jeff Cooper (1920-2006), well-known as an expert on the use and history of firearms, coined the term “hoplophobia” in 1962. Combining two Greek words meaning “arms” and “fear,” he sought to shift the focus of gun...

    For a left-wing civil rights organization purportedly dedicated to protecting minorities, the George Soros-supported Southern Poverty Law Center spends a lot of time peddling hatred against minorities, or at least those minorities who dare to step off the liberal plantation. ake Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformist who’s earned a reputation for telling it how it is about the millennia-old religion. While speaking on London’s LBC radio station last year, for instance, he boldly demanded a caller “stop pretending” violence and terrorism have nothing to do with Islam. During a discussion on Sky News earlier this year, he likewise slammed the...
  • D.C. Area Witches Unite for Gun Control, Hurl Curses at the NRA

    Gun control advocates can now boast of a new group of allies joining their dubious coalition: witches. It kind of makes sense. We all know that gun control is based mainly on magical thinking. Its advocates, after all, ask us to believe we’re just a few more “commonsense safety measures” away from a world in which evil people who are otherwise determined to kill others refrain from doing so for fear they might violate a gun control law somewhere along the way. A related premise is that gun control advocates hold the keys to ending violent behavior once and for...

    An unarmed security monitor in a golf cart was the first person to see Nikolas Cruz step out of an Uber, a large bag in hand, and stride toward Building 12 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High just before the worst school shooting in state history. Cruz, however, was no stranger to staff. "Nikolas Cruz. I knew the kid," security guard Andrew Medina told Broward detectives in a sworn video-recorded statement released by prosecutors on Tuesday evening. As soon as Cruz began walking "like on a mission" toward the building, Medina followed and began frantically texting fellow security guards. "We had...
  • 1955 Chevy BelAir Wagon (Lee Harvey Oswald rode in it from New Orleans to Dallas in 1963)

    This 1955 Chevrolet Station Wagon was recently uncovered after a 33 year+ storage here in Dallas, Texas. This is the wagon that was previously owned by Ms. Ruth Paine. The Paine's were fatefully attached to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy due to the fact that Marina Nikolayevna Oswald Porter, the wife of Lee Harvey Oswald at the time, was living with them in 1963 in Irving, Texas during the time of the JFK assassination. Lee Harvey was staying in an apartment building in Oak Cliff and would regularly visit his wife and the Paines. Their marriage in shambles,...

    Do Americans under 30 really hate guns? Earlier this year, victims of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting engaged in class walkouts to protest the supposed “easy access” to guns after a disturbed gunman’s six-minute murder spree. They were openly embraced by gun control advocates and anti-gun politicians, prominently featured and promoted by the media, and lauded as the “fierce voice” of the next generation that would “finally act” on gun control and maybe even turn elections. What followed was the sort of inconsistency one might expect from turning control of a public policy debate over to minors. The junior advocates...
  • Southwest Airlines Confronts Cal Women’s Coach Over Infant Son

    OAKLAND (CBS SF) — California Women’s head basketball Lindsay Gottlieb was confronted at the Denver airport by a Southwest Airlines employee who questioned her relationship to her infant bi-racial son before she could board a flight. Gottlieb took to Twitter Sunday night to file a series of posts complaining about her treatment. “I’m appalled that after approx 50 times flying with my 1-year-old son ticket counter personnel told me that I had to “prove” that he was my son despite having his passport,” she tweeted in one post. “She said we have a different last name. My guess is because...

    A crowd attending the Central Section Division I softball championship in Fresno on Friday evening burst into The Star-Spangled Banner after being told by the announcer that there would be no national anthem before the game. The Fresno Bee reported: Before Clovis High played Buchanan Friday night for the Central Section softball championship, the announcer representing the section stated there wouldn’t be a national anthem prior to the game. Those in attendance at Fresno State’s Margie Wright Diamond weren’t having any of that. Following a loud chorus of boos, the patriotic crowd stood up and began singing “The Star-Spangled Banner”...

    The Broward County Sheriff’s Office has seen better days. After the horrific Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida last February, the law enforcement department has been under siege. First, there’s former Officer Scot Peterson, who was assigned to the school. He was the school resource officer, but never went into the building to confront shooter Nikolas Cruz, who was gunning down faculty and students. Video footage confirmed Peterson never went in, prompting outrage. He resigned after he was placed on unpaid leave. Then, after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman, another sheriff’s deputy is suspended for falling asleep...
  • It’s Come to This: David Hogg is Organizing a Die-in At Publix

    For David Hogg’s next derp, he’s going to get people to boycott Publix. Everone’s favorite store in Florida. For serious. Go tweet someone you know in Florida and keep reading while you wait for a response. Chinless has proved he don’t know much about history with his black arm bad Nazi look. But he really should have copied off valedictorian-contender Kyle Kashuv’s homework when it came to critical thinking. Here’s Hoggy’s equation: Publix supports Adam Putnam for governor + Adam Putnam supports the NRA = Publix obviously supports the NRA. The store must pay for its thought crime. Showing that...
  • PUBLIX REFUSES TO PUT 'CUM' ON SON'S CAKE ... Mom Pissed

    Most people believe Summa Cum Laude is an honor ... Publix grocery store believes it's obscene. Case in point ... this cake. A woman in South Carolina ordered the tasty treat online to celebrate her son graduating from his homeschool program with a 4.79 GPA ... earning Summa Cum Laude honors. But, when she sent a friend to pick up the cake, the word "Cum" was edited out -- an apparent violation of the grocery store's obscenity policy!!!! "My son was humiliated," the woman posted on her Facebook page ... "I seriously couldn't make this crap up!!!" "How utterly ridiculous...

    Alexander Ciccolo, 25, the son of a Boston police captain, pled guilty on Monday to plotting an Islamic State terrorist attack on a college campus.

The Berkshire Eagle runs down the details of Ciccolo’s case: Ciccolo was arrested July 4, 2015, after he allegedly accepted a small cache of weapons from an FBI informant. He had come to the attention of authorities after his...

    On Tuesday Daniel Sugarman wrote an article on the clashes at the Gaza border. Today he acknowledges that he was wrong. It’s never easy to say you’re sorry. To admit you’re wrong. To announce publicly, “I made a mistake”. But to apologise when that apology comes bound up with what is, perhaps, the most intractable conflict on earth, makes it a thousand times harder. But that is what I am. Sorry. A few days ago I wrote a column about the latest round of violence on the border with Gaza. It was a cry from the heart. I love Israel....
  • SCHUMER MELTDOWN: Chuck Compares MS-13 Members to 'Our Great Grandparents'

    Sean Hannity ^ | 5/18/18 | Staff
    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer railed against President Trump’s harsh rhetoric towards violent street gang MS-13 Wednesday; taking the President’s comments out of context and equating violent offenders to “our great grandparents.” The President was responding to a California lawmaker’s complaint that local officials were unable to notify ICE officials of MS-13 gang members detained in county jails; saying federal authorities were working to bypass the “ridiculous” sanctuary city policies and deport “animal” criminals from the United States. Schumer slammed the President’s harsh rhetoric on social media within hours, saying “When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t...

    child-stabbing case might have had 'even worse outcome' A Tulsa woman who was captured Tuesday after police said she stabbed her 11-year-old daughter and left home with her 8-year-old daughter said she committed the acts after becoming angry about the children’s behavior while looking at her, police said. Taheerah Ayesha Ahmad, 39, and her 8-year-old daughter Hafsa Hayle — who also goes by Hafsa Hussein — were found in a parking lot near Cameron and Main streets about 12:20 p.m. Tuesday.

    Starbucks has been accused of racism yet again after a Latino customer at a Los Angeles area store found a racial slur scribbled on his cup. The man, who would only be identified as Peter, told CBS Los Angeles he received a drink with the word “BEANER” on it at the Starbucks in La Cańada, California. “En espańol es ‘frijoleros,’ ‘beaner,’ you know, in English,” said the victim’s friend Miguel Acosta. “He went to Starbucks, and they asked for his name, and his name is ‘Peter,’ and they wrote this ‘beaner,’ And he’s saying that’s not fair.” Acosta added that...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) had stern words for the National Rifle Association on Tuesday, responding to the gun group’s new president attacking student survivors of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, for allegedly engaging in “civil terrorism.” “The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told HuffPost. “They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation.” In an interview with The Washington Times last week, newly elected NRA president Oliver North accused students of Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas...
