Although requested, the Austin police and Travis County sheriff departments have refused to investigate. The Republican county chair requested the Texas AG instruct the Texas Rangers to investigate because they were being blamed for the thefts. Texas Ranger Straight was assigned and...

    Jaroslav Bobrowski knows a good deal when he sees one. Accordingly, an all-you-can-eat offer at one sushi restaurant is no longer available to him. The triathlete follows a special diet in which he fasts for 20-hour periods. So when he does sit down for dinner, he tries to make up for lost time. But after devouring a staggering 100 plates at the Running Sushi restaurant in Landshut, Germany, as part of its $26 buffet deal, the restaurant declared him persona non grata. "When I went to the checkout, I wanted to tip, but the waiter did not want to accept...

    An alligator is reportedly on the loose in a New Jersey township, and authorities are warning residents to be cautious. The Mullica Township Police Department said the gator was spotted on Hamburg Avenue Tuesday afternoon. Capt. Brian Zeck said a woman was the first to report it after it walked across her property.  “A homeowner saw it in her yard and videotaped it - it’s a confirmed alligator and it’s probably 3 and a half to 4 foot,” he told Fox News.  Police offered advice for residents who own pets. “We are working with our partners in the animal protection and...

    Soon-Yi Previn, Woody Allen’s wife and Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter, has broken her silence on the sexual assault charges levelled against Allen by Farrow. Previn said that Farrow has taken advantage of #MeToo movement and paraded Dylan (whom Allen was accused of molesting) as a victim, as a result of which ‘a whole new generation was hearing about it when they shouldn’t.’ Previn, of Korean descent, was adopted by Farrow when she was married to musician and composer Andre Previn. According to child psychiatrist Paulina Kernberg, the relationship between Previn and Allen, who was Farrow’s partner for 12 years, “broke...

    Republican Pete Flores defeated Democrat Pete Gallego on Tuesday night in the special election runoff for Senate District 19, a major upset in a Democratic-friendly seat with implications for the balance of power in the upper chamber.

Flores had 53 percent of the vote and Gallego 47 percent in unofficial returns. Gallego conceded to Flores around 9 p.m., according to both campaigns. With the victory, Flores will become the first Hispanic Republican to serve in the...

    President Trump has ordered that numerous documents involving the Russia investigation be declassified. The records have long been sought by Congress under lawful subpoenas. Yet, the FBI and Department of Justice have consistently obstructed the release of these materials under the guise of “classified” secrets. This is a convenient alibi all too frequently employed to cover-up wrongdoing and abuse of authority by those we entrust to uphold the law. These days, overzealous government officials automatically designate nearly all matters as national security risks, regardless of whether they truly are. Whenever the FBI orders Chinese take-out, it is labeled “top secret”...

    It should be OBVIOUS to anyone that this entire charade is a TACTIC by the DemonRats to DELAY the confirmation vote of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court until AFTER the midterm election where the DemonRats hope to gain the majority in the House and possibly Senate. Dr. Ford's calling for the FBI to investigate is entirely inappropriate. Such an investigation is a matter for the congnizant police dept NOT the FBI. It is Congress' decision to make, NOT FORD'S and she is entirely out of line for making such a request. WHY DIDN'T FORD OR FORD'S ATTORNEY ASK FOR SUCH...
  • Greetings From Vulcan? Planet Discovered Orbiting the Star of Spock's Homeworld in "Star Trek"

    Popular Mechanics ^ | September 19, 2018 | Avery Thompson
    Star Trek’s Spock comes from the planet Vulcan, which of course doesn’t exist. But new research might give us the next best thing—an exoplanet orbiting the real-life star that Vulcan is said to be orbiting in the Star Trek universe. In 1991, Gene Roddenberry wrote a letter to Sky & Telescope about what kind of star the planet Vulcan was likely to orbit. In that letter, he specifically picks out one such star, 40 Eridani. Later, 40 Eridani became the canon Vulcan star system featured in a handful of episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise.

This video features a Department of Justice paralegal Allison Hrabar reportedly using government owned software and computers to push a socialist agenda. Also featured is Jessica Schubel, the former Chief of Staff for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services during the last Obama administration. Both Schubel and Hrabar make admissions revealing that federal employees are using their positions in the government to resist or slow the Trump administration's policies, some breaking laws in the process.
