    The Waco-Tribune Herald ^ | Oct 7, 2015 | Waco Trib readers
    Plenty of folks responded by Facebook to a Sept. 30 Trib editorial that questioned the notion of the state’s helping local authorities pay for expenses arising from the deadly May 17 Twin Peaks shooting, particularly given the ongoing lack of transparency by those local authorities. A selection of the comments: Tonya Hilcher Gonzales: Waco should not get a dime from the state for the mess they created. Over four months later, they still won’t release the ballistics report. Four months later and we still don’t know how many of the nine were murdered by Waco police. I hope everyone remembers...
  • Hillary Clinton breaks with Obama, announces opposition to Pacific trade deal

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton continued her tack to the left Wednesday, declaring her opposition to President Obama’s Pacific trade deal. Mrs. Clinton announced her opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership in an interview with Judy Woodruff for PBS’s “NewsHour” program. “What I know about it, as of today, I am not in favor of what I have learned about it,” Mrs. Clinton said. The former first lady acknowledged that her response had some lawyerly caveats about not having seen every jot and tittle of the pact, but said she doubted she could change her mind. “I don’t believe...

    Tomorrow President Obama is scheduled to visit Rosenburg, Oregon, where 10 people were killed last week at Umpqua Community College by a deranged killer who happened to use a gun to carry out his crimes. We've already reported on the repulsed reaction from the community as people who live there continue to reject Obama's visit. Now Stacy Boylan, the father of shooting victim Ana Boylan, is directly speaking out against Obama's visit and has no interest in putting up with his exploitation of the tragedy for political purposes.

    Following the massacre of students at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, last Friday, President Obama issued a statement of condolence and reiterated his determination to press for more gun laws. On Monday he announced that he would visit Roseburg to console the families of the victims. But apparently this was not by invitation, and resistance to his unwelcome intrusion is building. In last Friday’s remarks, the president made clear his agenda:

    Illegal immigrants are “a critical part of our society” and should be provided a route to amnesty, Republican presidential candidate John Kasich tells a coalition of Hispanic company executives. “For those that are here that have been law abiding, God bless them,” he told the business group, which is a major advocate for expanded immigration. “Then I think the [illegals] should have a path to legalization… I think that can pass,” Kasich said, using one of the euphemisms for granting legal residency to illegal immigrants. The Ohio governor also claimed the illegal immigrants are skilled. The illegals “are a critical...

    One suspect is in custody and two others are still on the loose after a burglary at an Oklahoma City gun range. Early Wednesday morning, police say three juveniles burglarized the H&H Gun Range near I-40 and Meridian. Oklahoma City police were called to the scene after the alarm at H&H Gun Range started going off. When officers arrived, they say they saw the suspects get into a car and drive away. Officers then started chasing the vehicle. A short time later, police say the suspects’ vehicle crashed near I-40 and MacArthur and two of the suspects got away. One...

    An appeals court has overturned the conviction of a local Tea Party leader who was found guilty of blackmail. In May 2014, Sooner Tea Party leader Al Gerhart was found guilty of blackmailing a state senator and violating the Computer Crimes Act. Prosecutors claimed Gerhart sent an email to Oklahoma Sen. Cliff Branan, allegedly promising to make the senator a “laughing stock” unless the Senate Energy and Environment Committee passed a bill that would block a United Nations plan. In an e-mail to Senator Cliff Branan, Gerhart allegedly wrote: Branan, Get that bill heard or I will make sure you...

In an unguarded moment, House speaker-in-waiting Kevin McCarthy claimed credit for the decline in Hillary Clinton's poll numbers because House Republicans had formed a congressional committee investigating the attacks in Benghazi, making it look like a political witch hunt. “I heard from him at 6 a.m. the next morning,” Gowdy told the Post on Tuesday when asked about McCarthy. “How many times can somebody apologize?

    President Obama on Wednesday called on U.S. business, labor and political leaders to “refashion the social compact” and strengthen union powers across the country, arguing that the troubling trend of declining middle-class wages can be turned around by redefining the basic principles of workers’ rights. During a speech at a White House summit on working Americans, the president drew a direct link between drops in union membership and the stagnation of most workers’ wages. Mr. Obama also said that workers’ anxiety about their job security and whether they’ll be afford to feed their families contributes to “anti-immigration sentiment” and other...

Not about tightening gun laws, as President Obama urged after nine people were killed at the community college here.

I’m sure I’ll have a normal life and never have to go through anything like this, but I want to be sure.” Mr. Obama...

The ambitious mandates of SB 350, championed by Senate President pro tem Kevin de Leon of Los Angeles, were outlined by Brown in his inaugural address in January. But de Leon’s legislation was significantly watered down last month in the state Assembly, which stripped away a requirement that the state slash its gasoline use by 50 percent in the next 15 years. That provision sparked heated debate in Sacramento, thanks to opposition from...

Then it happened two more times,” said one official. Both officials said that the incidents took place over ISIS-controlled Syria, including its de facto headquarters in Raqqa, as well as along the Turkish-Syrian border near Korbani. Another occurred in the northwest, near the highly contested city of Aleppo.

Travis County Probate Judge Guy Herman signed a judgment acknowledging that Stella Powell and Sonemaly Phrasavath met the legal requirements to be considered married even though their eight-year relationship did not include a marriage license. Herman’s order, signed Monday but distributed Tuesday, ended Phrasavath’s quest to have her relationship with Powell, who died last year, recognized as a marriage after Powell’s siblings filed a probate suit stating that she had died single because she could not marry another woman under Texas law.

    In the science fiction thriller “Minority Report,” a police force known as PreCrime uses mutated human psychics to identify criminals before they act. The U.S. Army is working toward a similar goal — not by reading minds but by crunching data. Using the military records of all 975,057 soldiers who served during a six-year period, researchers have developed an algorithm they hope can help prevent severe, violent crimes by identifying those at greatest risk of becoming perpetrators. They would not be pre-arrested, but rather given counseling or other interventions aimed at heading off violence.

The letter was sent after Defense Department officials uncovered a batch of emails that Clinton sent early in her tenure but did not turn over to the State Department upon their request last December. Clinton had surrendered 30,940 emails - but the Defense Department's discovery means there could...

    Rob O’Neill — the Navy SEAL who shot Osama bin Laden — has finally broken his silence after ISIS supporters published his home address and called for both his death and the death of his family. “All soldiers who serve their country assume certain risks. It’s part of the deal,” he told The Daily Caller. “But I am alert, I am vigilant and I take precautions.” After publicly telling his story in November 2014, O’Neill has become a major target for radical Islamists across the globe, yet personal security threats won’t silence him from speaking out against one of America’s...

    Circulating on the web tonight: During an appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Drudge asserted that copyright laws which prevent websites from even linking to news stories were being advanced. “I had a Supreme Court Justice tell me it’s over for me,” said Drudge. “They’ve got the votes now to enforce copyright law, you’re out of there. They’re going to make it so you can’t even use headlines.” “To have a Supreme Court Justice say to me it’s over, they’ve got the votes, which means time is limited,” he added, noting that a day was coming when simply operating an...

    WASHINGTON Hillary Clinton hired a Connecticut company to back up her emails on a “cloud” storage system, and her lawyers have agreed to turn whatever it contains over to the FBI, a personal familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The disclosure came as a Republican Senate committee chairman, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, also asked the firm to turn over to the committee copies of any Clinton emails still in its possession. There were conflicting accounts as to whether the development could lead to recovery of any of Clinton’s more than 31,000 personal emails, which she said she deleted from her...

(Vadim Ghirda/AP) 1 2 3 4 » CHISINAU, Moldova (AP) — In the backwaters of Eastern Europe, authorities working with the FBI have interrupted four attempts in the past five years by gangs with suspected Russian connections that sought to sell radioactive material to Middle Eastern extremists, The Associated Press has learned. The latest known case came in February this year, when a smuggler offered a huge cache of deadly cesium — enough to contaminate several city blocks — and specifically sought a buyer from...

    Within hours of the killings at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last week, President Obama stepped to the White House lectern, admittedly without all the facts of the case, to shamelessly politicize the tragedy. “Somebody, somewhere will comment and say, Obama politicized this issue. Well, this is something we should politicize,” he said. Perhaps Obama’s open politicizing of the issue wasn’t the worst part, but instead it was his intellectual dishonesty when it comes to the “common-sense” gun laws he wants implemented. “What’s become routine, of course, is the response of those who oppose any kind of common-sense gun legislation....
