    As the waters in Houston and surrounding areas begin to recede in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, there's no doubt looters are getting ready to take advantage of empty homes. Some looting has already started. But one Texas Sheriff has a stern warning for those who seek to prey on victims: You do so at the risk of your life. "We've heard of looting around the greater Houston area, specifically Harris County. But as far as Fort Bend County, we haven't," Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls told Fox News Saturday. "I made a comment the other day that we...

    “People in Texas will buy trucks even if they’re not going to haul anything heavier than raindrops.” The NY Times went on safari to Texas, and it has an article about a peculiar love of the natives for trucks, Rodeo Offers a 90-M.P.H. Glimpse of Texans’ Truck Mania: Tim Spell has noticed a peculiar condition that affects Texans’ mental, physical and automotive well-being. “I call it ‘truck-itis,’” said Mr. Spell, the former automotive editor for The Houston Chronicle. “People in Texas will buy trucks even if they’re not going to haul anything heavier than raindrops.

    My honorary home state. And at the rate California is tanking, my likely new home. Brown hasn't even finished bankrupting us with his high speed railroad to hell and now he wants to put up his own satellites to fight global warming? And wants California to secede from the Union if Trump doesn't allow half of Mexico to move in illegally. And I think the majority of Americans would love to see it happen. Prayers up for President Trump! God bless America.

    The lack of faith in central bank trustworthiness is spreading. First Germany, then Holland, and Austria, and now - as we noted was possible previously - Texas has enacted a Bill to repatriate $1 billion of gold from The NY Fed's vaults to a newly established state gold bullion depository..."People have this image of Texas as big and powerful … so for a lot of people, this is exactly where they would want to go with their gold," and the Bill includes a section to prevent forced seizure from the Federal Government.

    Americans will defend to the death — and literally had to — Pamela Geller’s right to disseminate images of the Prophet Muhammad. The First Amendment applies even to irresponsible provocateurs. A Geller-organized event in Texas over the weekend included inviting artists to draw images of Muhammad, an act that has provoked deadly attacks by some Islamists. In explaining her rationale, Geller pointed to an Iranian Holocaust cartoon contest that drew nearly 1,000 entries, saying “We need to make a similar show of strength of what is right.” Which extended to a drawing of Muhammad anally impaled on a pencil up...

    Gun owners and self-defense advocates are lauding a rare victory in which a Texas grand jury has refused to indict a homeowner for shooting and killing a police officer who entered his home unannounced in the middle of the night. The homeowner, Henry Magee, 28, said he thought the officers who broke through his door were robbers and he acted in self-defense to protect his pregnant girlfriend and two children. Police were acting on a tip from a criminal informant that led them to believe Magee had more than a dozen marijuana plants, all at least six feet tall, in...

    LUIS GUTIERREZ TO TX GOV: ‘WE ARE COMING’ FOR EXEC AMNESTY Associated Press On the most recent leg of his national executive amnesty tour, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) suggested that Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) should start “looking at his own family” before opposing President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty. Abbott’s wife, who is of Hispanic descent, is the state’s first Latina First Lady. “Let me just suggest to the governor of the state we are coming, we are signing people up for the executive action. Millions of families, and he should turn around looking at his own family and ask...

    FEBRUARY 8, 2015 6:00 PM Is Texas ‘Crazy’ or Is It the Real America? Its undeniable economic success will be an issue in 2016. By John Fund Last week, everywhere I went in Washington it seemed as if the country’s cultural and ideological divisions came down to a debate over the state of Texas and whether or not it was “a crazy state” or the “place that is still most like America.” Congressman Alcee Hastings, a Florida Democrat, started the rumble during a House committee meeting by saying that Texas’s refusal to join Obamacare’s exchanges made it “a crazy state.”...

    In a statement posted on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management website (BLM), federal officials denied any expansion of holdings along the Red River after Breitbart Texas brought the matter to national attention. The nuanced denial has drawn critical reactions from a number of elected Texas officials. BLM spokesman Paul McGuire said “The 140-acres in question were determined to be public land in 1986 when the U.S. District Court ruled on a case brought by two private landowners, each seeking to adjust boundary lines for their respective properties. The BLM was not a party to any litigation between landowners. The...

    Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has a message for the Bureau of Land Management about disputed land along the Oklahoma-Texas border: "Come and take it." Abbott was referring to a potential land grab of 90,000 acres that belong to Texas residents. According to Breitbart Texas, the federal government is considering taking the land, which stretches 116 miles along the Red River. "I am about ready to go to the Red River and raise a 'Come and Take It' flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas," Abbott said.

    After the recent Bundy Ranch episode by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Texans are becoming more concerned about the BLM’s focus on 90,000 acres along a 116 mile stretch of the Texas/Oklahoma boundary. The BLM is reviewing the possible federal takeover and ownership of privately-held lands which have been deeded property for generations of Texas landowners. Sid Miller, former Texas State Representative and Republican candidate for Texas Agriculture Commissioner, has since made the matter a campaign issue to Breitbart Texas. “In Texas,” Miller says, “the BLM is attempting a repeat of an action taken over 30 years ago...

    The Supreme Court denied a stay of execution for Mexican national Edgar Tamayo, clearing the way for Texas to put the inmate to death Wednesday night. The Mexican government had called on Texas to halt the execution, saying that the death penalty in this case would violate international treaties. Secretary of State John Kerry previously asked Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott to delay Tamayo's execution, saying it "could impact the way American citizens are treated in other countries." The State Department reiterated that position Tuesday.

    HUNTSVILLE, TEXAS — A Mexican national was executed Wednesday night in Texas for killing a Houston police officer, despite pleas and diplomatic pressure from the Mexican government and the U.S. State Department to halt the punishment. Edgar Tamayo, 46, received a lethal injection for the January 1994 fatal shooting of Officer Guy Gaddis, 24. Asked by a warden if he had a final statement, he mumbled "no" and shook his head. As the lethal dose of pentobarbital began taking effect, he took a few breaths and then made one slightly audible snore before all movement stopped. He was pronounced dead...

    In rural Lavaca County, Texas, a grand jury refused to indict a father who, when he caught a farm hand attempting to rape his five-year-old daughter, beat the farm hand, accidentally killing him. The incident took place on June 9, near Shiner, Texas. Someone alerted the little girl’s father that Jesus Flores, a farmhand, was seen carrying the little girl to a secluded area. The father took off in the direction that the farmhand was seen traveling. As he drew closer, he could hear his little girl screaming. When he reached the two, both the farmhand and the five-year-old had...
