    DALLAS -- A mother of two said she was pumping gas just after 10 p.m. Wednesday night in southern Dallas, when a man jumped in her car and tried to drive away with her two kids inside. Instead of hesitating, Michelle Booker-Hicks told FOX 4 in Dallas that she did what she had to in order to save her kids. "I proceeded to jump in my backseat and told the gentleman to stop, to get out the car. He would not get out of the car. He turned around and looked at me. I reached over the armrest to get...

    Mark Cuban made a mistake Monday afternoon. A TMZ camera found him outside a restaurant in California, and the Mavs owner actually stopped and talked to the paparazzo. Quickly, Cuban was talking about the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia and its decision to deny service to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Although he likely didn't know it at the time, Cuban was about to stir up Trump Twitter, a group that's never met a stupid fight it didn't like. Here's what Cuban said with regard to the restaurant. “It’s a good question. You can make an argument on...

    Billboards promoting a celebration of faith and freedom at the First Baptist Church in Dallas were removed after complaints from Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and the Dallas Morning News. The patriotic billboard campaign included the title of the sermon Dr. Robert Jeffress planned to deliver on June 24 – “America is a Christian Nation.”“We were told by the billboard company that the message was divisive,” Jeffress told the Todd Starnes Radio Show. The sermon title was inspired by a comments made by Supreme Court Justices John Jay and David Josiah Brewer — both of whom described America as a Christian...

    AUSTIN — After months spent hashing out how to pay the $1.6 billion tab, North Texas' most pressing freeway need at long last gained the blessing of the Texas Transportation Commission at its Thursday meeting. The Texas Department of Transportation now has its governing body's approval to seek bids on 10.8 miles of Interstate 635 between Central Expressway and Interstate 30 — known as LBJ East to planners. A contract will be awarded in the summer of 2019, and construction is to finish in 2024. The result will be another free lane in each direction, continuous frontage roads that the...

    New jobs and homes are booming in the Greater Houston area: it is ranked No. 4 in the nation for top job growth markets and No. 2 for adding new homes. The data is from a new Metrostudy report released May 10 on the first three months of 2018; the report looked at the Houston economy’s job growth and population. With regard to employment growth, Houston came in below the New York, Dallas and Los Angeles metros with a total employment of 3,058,500 in February 2018. That is an annual growth of 67,100 jobs, or 2.2 percent, for Houston, according...

    FRISCO, Texas – At one point this week, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott sat back at his locker and pulled a large box to his lap, flipping the top open and pulling out a crisp Stetson cowboy hat. Without removing the plastic wrapping, he pulled the brim down over his forehead and smiled. A perfect fit. One of the few for the Cowboys in this week’s minicamp, which may have been summed up most accurately by head coach Jason Garrett when he said the team (and the offense in particular) is nowhere near a finished product. “We’re so far away,”...

    OXON HILL, Md. – The end of the biggest Scripps National Spelling Bee in history came abruptly, and it wasn't the conclusion that many expected. Naysa Modi, a poised and charismatic four-time participant whose long spelling career seemed to be building toward triumph, sat next to a newcomer whom she had already beaten this year — at the county level. But 12-year-old Naysa blinked immediately, mixing up the single and double "s'' in the German-derived word "Bewusstseinslage" — a state of consciousness or a feeling devoid of sensory components — and 14-year-old Karthik Nemmani seized an opportunity that he wouldn't...

    image from pagunblog.com The Washington Post published an article meant to convince the American people that their perceptions of gun ownership in the United States are wrong. They attempt to convince people that surveys showing lower numbers are goodthink. The article admits that gun ownership numbers are hotly disputed. They admit that ownership numbers are difficult to determine. Then they make the claim that ownership rates are falling and that  "In reality, only about 25 percent of Americans own a gun." From the Washington Post: As some 70,000 people attended the NRA’s annual convention last week, nearly three months after...

    Former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney lashed out at the decision to have a controversial evangelical leader give a blessing at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem Monday, calling him a "religious bigot." The Senate candidate from Utah criticized the inclusion of the Rev. Robert Jeffress — the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas who is also an an adviser to President Donald Trump. The president recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital last year. "Robert Jeffress says, 'You can't be saved by being a Jew,' and 'Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell,'" Romney wrote in...

Dallas' $575,000 bill includes security and traffic control for rallies, protests and President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence's visit to Dallas to speak at the convention, City Manager T.C.

    Shannon Watts, founder of anti-Second Amendment organization Moms Demand Action, claimed Saturday that Dana Loesch attempted to “harass” and “intimidate” anti-gun protesters staging at a church in Dallas, where the annual National Rifle Association meeting is taking place. It took Loesch just one tweet to prove Watts was lying. What happened? It all started when Watts tweeted: Shannon Watts ✔ @shannonrwatts .@NRA lobbyist @DLoesch has shown up uninvited, with a camera crew, at a church where Texas @MomsDemand volunteers are meeting to discuss gun safety in order to harass and intimidate volunteers.

    President Donald Trump said Friday that polls showing him trailing Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election were a form of voter suppression. Trump spoke at the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas, Texas, and he again recounted his upset victory over Clinton as a way to rev up the crowd. "You weren't sure that Trump was going to win, but you all went out there. You all went out there and you voted," Trump said. "I remember they came out with a lot of phony polls. You know what that's called? Suppression," he added. "They convince you that you're wasting...
