    [I begin] with the story of a series of Socialist scholars conferences that Barack Obama attended when he lived in New York City between the years 1983 and 1985. And when I finally reconstructed what had gone on at these Socialist conferences that Barack Obama attended, I truly was amazed because what I saw was a kind of map of Barack Obama’s entire subsequent political career. It was at this Socialist conferences in New York in the mid-’80s that Barack Obama encountered the groups, the strategies, and the mentors who would guide him throughout his entire political career. [T]hese Socialist...

    A University of North Texas police officer shot and killed a student who allegedly threatened him with an ax early Sunday. The student was identified as Ryan McMillan, who had celebrated his 21st birthday Sunday. University spokeswoman Kelley Reese told the Dallas Morning News. McMillan was a sophomore transfer student from Fort Worth studying pre-hospitality. UNT spokeswoman Margarita Venegas says police responded about 1 a.m. to a report that someone was breaking car windows in a parking garage about two blocks from campus. KDFW reported that university police were asked to respond to the situation because local police in the...

    Denton’s 7-month-old ban on hydraulic fracturing fell early Wednesday morning in what city leaders dubbed a “strategic repeal.” Several City Council members said repealing the ban could help neutralize a pair of lawsuits against the city that were on the move again. Council member Greg Johnson called the option the least of three bad choices. Only Council member Keely Briggs voted against the ordinance to repeal, which passed 6-1. The Texas General Land Office and the Texas Oil and Gas Association amended their lawsuits against Denton's ban late Monday. They both cited House Bill 40 as the basis not only...

    The Texas Tribune ^ | March 24, 2015 | Jim Malewitz
    A Senate committee gave unanimous approval Tuesday to a bill that would limit local control over oil and gas activities across Texas — a measure being referred to as the "Denton fracking bill." The proposal is among nearly a dozen filed in the aftermath of the North Texas town's vote in November to ban hydraulic fracturing within city limits, and it's among those most likely to pass. The legislation, Senate Bill 1165, now heads to the full Senate, where advocates for municipalities will push for changes to address their biggest concern – that the proposal would jeopardize long-held city police...

    On election night, voters in Denton, Texas, a city of about 113,000 people northwest of Dallas, voted to ban fracking within the city limits. Appeals were immediately filed; Denton is in oil and gas country – in the Barnett Shale – where fossil fuel resources are not only creating significant growth for the industry, but also lining the coffers of local municipalities and governmental entities within the state. To find out more about what the ban means, and what lies ahead, Rigzone interviewed Mark A. Plummer, CEO and owner of Chestnut Exploration Companies, headquartered in Richardson, a suburb of Dallas,...

    A week after a historic vote to ban hydraulic fracturing (or fracking — the controversial drilling method that forces oil and gas from shale formations with pressurized water, sand and a host of chemicals), Denton, Texas, has been told the state will continue to issue drilling permits within the city limits. “It’s my job to give permits, not Denton’s,” said Christi Craddick, chairwoman of the Railroad Commission of Texas. “We’re going to continue permitting up there because that’s my job.” Also known as the Texas Railroad Commission or TRC, the three-member state body actually has no jurisdiction over the rails,...

    DENTON, Texas (AP) — The mayor of the North Texas city weighing a ban on hydraulic fracturing this week said he’s prepared for the court battles that might result if the ban passes. Denton Mayor Chris Watts told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he expects Tuesday’s referendum “may be just the beginning for us.” “The vote is not the end of the story,” Watts said. “It may just be the beginning. It may be decided at the courthouse or at the Statehouse.”(continued)

    Land-use conflicts between Barnett Shale wells and homes continues to pose a “major impediment” to Denton’s future quality of life and economic development, gas well administrator Darren Groth told the City Council Tuesday. The Council agreed, voting unanimously Tuesday to approve a moratorium on gas wells applications and permits through Jan. 20. This moratorium is separate from the Nov. 4 referendum to ban hydraulic fracking in the city of Denton, a first for Texas. The four-and-a-half-month extension gives city staff time to iron out problems with the city ordinance to prevent a repeat of what happened in the Vintage neighborhood...

    A North Texas community that sits on a large natural gas reserve could become the first city in the state to partially ban hydraulic fracturing, with city leaders in Denton set to vote early Wednesday on a citizen-led petition to outlaw new permits for the drilling method. The process, also called fracking, has led to significant economic benefits but also to fears that the chemicals could spread to water supplies, worsen air quality and even cause small earthquakes. Scores of other cities and some states have considered similar bans, but the proposal in Denton is a litmus test on whether...

    Former Alabama Sen. Jeremiah A. Denton Jr., a prisoner of war for more than seven years in North Vietnam, died on Friday in Virginia Beach. Mr. Denton was 89 years old. His son, Jim Denton, told The Washington Post, which first reported the news, that his father died of a heart ailment. Mr. Denton, a retired U.S. Rear Admiral, was shot down over the city of Thanh Hoa in Vietnam in 1965 and captured while leading a bombing mission. He later wrote a book about his experiences. Mr. Denton grabbed national attention in 1966 when he was forced to give...

    DENTON — An Army veteran whose remarks led to a 90-minute lockdown on the Texas Woman's University campus in Denton on Tuesday is now speaking out from behind bars. Police said Christopher Gillette made threatening remarks, prompting the emergency action. "What I basically said is that I'm extremely angry; I have specific military training; and I feel like tearing Washington down brick-by-brick," Gillette told News 8. Following his remarks, security officers swept the TWU campus, fearing a man with a gun could do harm.

    This was written by retired Admiral and U.S. Sen. Jeremiah Denton to an audience at the National Marine Corps Museum Feb. 13th. We are in a struggle for our very survival in America. This book (autobiography, "When Hell Was in Session") presents my ideas of how we can win that struggle. Although the plan is far from complete, I have already concluded that, though we are presently in a bad way, we can indeed come from behind and will win this cultural war. This belief is based partly on the truism that he who is most hungry for victory has...

    There are moments in Jeremiah Denton's past that he wishes he could forget. One of the highest-ranking American officers to be captured during the Vietnam War, the retired rear admiral spent seven years and seven months as a POW, four of them in solitary confinement. Denton, who went on to become a U.S. senator from Alabama, will revisit some of that history Saturday at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle with a lecture on his book "When Hell Was in Session." Recently re-released, the volume is a firsthand account of Denton's time in some of the most...

    Scroll for updates…Wired News confirms… Sometime early this morning, between approximately 3:00am - 4:00am, members of an infamous group of hackers broke into Gov. Sarah Palin’s private Yahoo e-mail account. The incriminating discussion threads included screenshots of Palin’s e-mail and private e-mail addresses of her contacts. The threads have since been deleted. Hacking e-mail is a federal crime. A TV anchor who broke into his colleague’s e-mail account recently pleaded guilty and faces a maximum five years in prison. The law will catch up to the hackers, but what about the lowlifes who are now gleefully splashing the alleged contents...
