    A witness told police that Darren Clark, 50, had gotten into an argument with his roommate of three years, Charles Jones, because Jones didn't flush the toilet after using it. Clark pulled out a knife and stabbed Jones, then fled, the witness said... Jones, who had been stabbed twice in the chest and once in his right arm, was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center. Clark was charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — family violence. He has been released from the Dallas County Jail after posting $50,000 bail.

    Since the 2016 presidential election, liberal educators across the fruited plain have gone slap crazy. I wrote about these phenomena in my new book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again.” Some teachers have even turned their classrooms into breeding grounds for anti-Trump propaganda – going so far as to portray the commander-in-chief as a modern-day Adolf Hitler. And I lost count of the number of educators who refused to broadcast the inauguration ceremony over fears that some fragile snowflake might take offense. But what happened in Dallas is yet another example of how our public schools have been...

    Police say surveillance video shows the two males approach Whitener as he walked toward the store. The suspects then walked away when the theater director walked into the entrance. Once inside, Whitener immediately went to a Target employee and told them about the males, who were then asked by an off-duty officer and a security guard to leave the property. However, authorities say Whitener was approached by the two males after he left the store at about 11:05 p.m. "They made a threatening statement to [Whitener] and then beat him with the [wooden] stick and fled on foot towards the...

    As I drove around the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex during Christmas season, 2016, I stopped at four area Walmart stores.  The first one was a couple of days before Christmas.  I did not have a car until the 24th, so I only looked in the Walmart at Frankford and Marsh Ln before Christmas.  I have written about .22 at that store for a year and a half.  It has had .22 LR in stock pretty reliably during that period, so I was not surprised to see a a couple thousand Winchester Super X, a couple of thousand CCI Stingers, a...

    For months, if not years, we've warned that conflicted politicians and union bosses pursue a perverse set of goals in their management of pension funds, most of which have nothing to do with the application of sound financial principles. Here's how we summarized the situation back in the summer (see "An Unsolvable Math Problem: Public Pensions Are Underfunded By As Much As $8 Trillion"): Defined Benefit Pension Plans are, in many cases, a ponzi scheme.  Current assets are used to pay current claims in full in spite of insufficient funding to pay future liabilities... classic Ponzi.  But unlike wall...

    City Journal ^ | 12/14/2016 | Steve Malanga
    When Detroit filed for bankruptcy in 2013, the city’s emergency-financial team said that high levels of retirement debt could prevent them from rescuing the Motor City’s finances. Detroit had been in economic decline for decades, and the pension problem—including billions of dollars in bonuses handed out while the city was hurtling toward insolvency—was just one part of the depressing financial picture. Dallas, by contrast, has been one of the fastest-growing American cities in recent years. Becoming a magnet for investment and opportunity, however, hasn’t protected the Texas city from experiencing its own Detroit-style financial crisis. Dallas’s retirement system for cops...

In a recent interview with NPR, co-founder Patrisse Cullors said there would be absolutely no negotiating with Donald Trump or anyone in his administration. “We’re not going to be taking meetings with Donald Trump,” Patrisse Cullors said. “We’re not going to be sitting with his Attorney General. What we will be doing is protesting. What we will be doing is calling for an end to white nationalism and fascism.” The Black Lives Matter movement has grown into a nation-wide...

    Earlier today the Kersten Institute for Governance and Public Policy highlighted an updated pension study, released by the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, which revealed some fairly startling realities about California's public pension underfunding levels. After averaging $77,700 per household in 2014, the amount of public pension underfunding for the state of California jumped to a staggering $92,748 per household in 2015. But don't worry, we're sure pension managers can grow their way out of the problem...hedge fund returns have been stellar recently, right?

The truth is that the two cities are in equally dreadful trouble, headed for bankruptcy, as are Fort Worth and El Paso, thanks to delusional forecasting, ludicrous system design, and meddlesome union-funded lawmakers from across the state who’ve stripped big-city voters of their right to govern their own finances. How mismanaged are these...

    In July, the city of Dallas offered at least $3 million to any grocery store willing to sell fresh produce and healthy food in a "southern Dallas food desert." For the first time, the city made it known it had money available, advertising in grocery trade publications. Decades of pleading, of keeping fingers crossed, begat the promise of cold, hard cash. But officials said Wednesday they never found a taker. [Snip] Council members had hoped a grocery store chain would agree to open at least one 25,000-square-foot store in southern Dallas and, preferably, one that could anchor a larger mixed-use...

Dallas has the fastest economic growth of the nation’s 13 largest cities. Its streets hum with supersize cars and its skyline bristles with cranes. Its mayor is a former chief executive of Pizza Hut.

In October 2015, he led a group of pastors to Trump tower, laying hands on Trump and gleefully telling Fox News that "anybody that was in that meeting would've left there, first of all,...

The post elicited a number of supporters to Judge Martin’s sentiment, typically calling Pennie a “coon” and other derisive messages.

  • 'We're in this together': Local police officers overwhelmed by donations after Dallas tragedy

    Cookies, cupcakes, handwritten notes, Gatorade and even Tang. Those are some of the ways citizens have chosen to show their support and appreciation for area law enforcement in the weeks since a sniper murdered five police officers in Dallas in the wake of the fatal officer-involved shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota. “You get to where you feel like you’re kind of on an island, and you’re all by yourself, and so the support from the community is fantastic because we’re in this together,” said Capt. Todd Enzbrenner with the Sand Springs Police Department. Since the shooting, he...

    The best friend of Gavin Long, aka Cosmo Setepenra, tells how a Marine became a sovereign citizen and, eventually, a mass murderer. Before he killed three Baton Rouge cops, Gavin Long drove to Dallas one day after a black veteran like him slaughtered five white police officers. Once there, he recorded himself preaching a message for black men: It’s time to wake up. Long visited two barbershops with a stack of self-published tomes and a camera clipped to his shirt to record his proselytizing. “I want to give you something that you can’t lose, something they can’t take from you,”...

    Before someone says President Obama did no such thing and that Baton Rouge, like Dallas, cannot be laid at his doorstep, let us consider his own statement that “words have consequences”. From Ferguson to Baltimore and beyond President Obama’s words have been the equivalent of yelling “fire” in a crowded theatre. He has encouraged a false narrative of racist cops and racist police departments whose officers are guilty until proven innocent, or buried, whichever comes first. If there is a Pearl Harbor in this war on cops, it was Ferguson, Missouri, where President Obama’s Justice Department sent 40 FBI agents...

    Confronting another killing of police officers, President Barack Obama on Sunday urged Americans to tamp down inflammatory words and actions as a violent summer collides with the nation’s heated presidential campaign. Obama said the motive behind Sunday’s killing of three officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was still unknown. It was the latest in a string of deadly incidents involving law enforcement, including the police shooting of a black man in Baton Rouge and the killing of five officers in Dallas. “We as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies attacks on law enforcement,” Obama said in...

    Curtis Gatewood is currently the field director of the North Carolina NAACP. He has described the killing of mass murderer Micah X. Johnson by the Dallas Police as a ‘lynching’: Make no mistake, by taking this Black ‘suspect’ and demonizing and using a killer robot to blow him up in this unprecedented and barbaric manner and without a trial in a court of law is the truest and most literal example yet of a high-tech lynching. In the period 1882 through 1964, according to the archives at the Tuskegee Institute, 4,742 American citizens were lynched. Each and every one was...
  • For Obama, Leftist Rhetoric Is Always Innocent and Conservatives Are Always Guilty

    When it comes to the linkage between violence and rhetoric, I abide by a fairly simple rule: If you’re not advocating violence, you’re not responsible for violence. […] President Barack Obama also abides by a simple rule when it comes to linking violence and rhetoric: If he doesn’t like the rhetoric, it’s responsible for violence. And if there’s violence associated with rhetoric he likes, then the violence must have been caused by something else. This shining double standard was on full display this week after an anti-white racist black man shot 14 police officers in Dallas just hours after Obama...

    A newspaper in Memphis quickly apologize after protestors complained about its choice of headline in the wake of the deadly police shooting in Dallas. “Gunman targeted whites,” read the lead story headline in the Commercial Appeal, a member of the USA Today network. The headline was accurate, as Dallas gunman Micah Xavier Johnson explicitly talked about wanted to kill white police officers before he was eliminated via robot bomb.
