    Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are calling on their Democratic colleagues to provide more details about a series of trips taken to Mexico while staff were touring border detention facilities, amid reports that at least one Democrat has been involved in “coaching” migrants there on how to exploit U.S. immigration law. In a letter to Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., obtained by Fox News, ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said there were at least two committee staff trips into Mexico in August — one of which required Border Patrol agents to provide a special escort back into the U.S. “Although...

    The attorney for a man who police say shot and killed a Leander ISD teacher and coach says his client has been been no-billed by a grand jury, meaning he won't be indicted. Larry Smith is accused of shooting and killing his next door neighbor Adam Ladner during an altercation in January. It all started when Smith called police for a noise complaint against Ladner. After police left Ladner's home, Smith says Ladner became violent with him. According to court documents, at some point during this physical confrontation, Smith shot Ladner. When officers arrived, Ladner was dead on Smith's property.

    During his grudge-airing, redemption-seeking spectacle on Wednesday, Michael Cohen admitted he was in cahoots with Democratic lawmakers prior to giving his congressional testimony. “We spoke with Chairman [Elijah] Cummings and the [Democratic] Party,” Trump’s former lawyer confessed to Representative Jody Hice (R-Ga.). “We spoke with Chairman [Adam] Schiff and his people as well.” Under further questioning by Rep. James Jordan (R-Ohio), Cohen acknowledged he “spoke to Mr. Schiff about topics that were going to be raised at the upcoming hearing.” Jordan clarified that rather than simply discuss the logistics of the hearing, Schiff coached the witness on “what [he was]...

    Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney for President Trump, told House investigators this week that staff for Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., traveled to New York at least four times to meet with him for over 10 hours immediately before last month’s high-profile public testimony, according to two sources familiar with the matter who spoke to Fox News — as Republicans question whether the meetings amounted to coaching a witness. The sources told Fox News that the sessions covered a slew of topics addressed during the public hearing before the oversight committee — including the National Enquirer’s “Catch and...

    I have given a good number of depositions & have testified numerous times during my life, in Corporate Business cases, and while I have been coached over subject matter and details by attorneys, when the time came for me to be deposed or become a testifying was me alone sitting in the chair of inquiry. I have also watched & listened to many "Congressional Inquiries" and those being questioned always sit alone, with their attorneys usually sitting behind them, to be available for a word or two. But...I have never, ever, seen the Orwellian, "Big Brother, 1984" duo act...

    We thought it would be clear to most readers that the script was a fictional account. Interestingly, the blog article garnered attention on several web sites and a number of readers on those sites mistakenly thought the article was a non-fiction article. While we're sure some of the scenarios presented in the article have been encountered by parents of youth athletes, we also found it telling about the current state of youth sports that so many people took the script seriously. Installment one ended with a quote from the player who just left practice in tears that read, "Dad, I...

    In Royal Oak, the school district decided that it was going to charge an extra $50 for students who wanted to play a second sport in the middle school.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Pregnant women coached through their first delivery do not fare much better than those who just do what feels natural, according to a study released on Friday. Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center found that women who were told to push 10 seconds for every contraction gave birth 13 minutes faster than those who were not given specific instructions. But they said the difference has little impact on the overall birth, which experts say can take up to 14 hours on average. "There were no other findings to show that coaching or not coaching...

    Many gay activists compare their current “civil rights” struggles with those faced by blacks in the segregated South in the 1950s. The comparison is deemed offensive by many blacks, given that the average black income is still much lower than the average white income in America. Blacks’ educational attainment still falls well below that of white Americans, even fifty years after the landmark Brown decision. By contrast, gay Americans are wealthier and more educated than their straight counterparts. Nonetheless, lesbian millionaire (and North Carolina Senator) Julia Boseman thinks they need a helping hand. That’s why her family started a special...
