  • [FLASHBACK] McKinney: DoD shot 5,000 prisoners during Katrina

    It wouldn’t be an election cycle without Cynthia McKinney’s lunacy, and fortunately she hasn’t shied away from providing it. Here, we watch as the Green Party’s endorsed presidential candidate accuses National Guard soldiers of committing 5,000 murders of prisoners in the wake of Hurricane Katrina: If you think that this is the kind of insanity one normally hears from Alex Jones, well … you’d be right. The conspiracy theorists on the Left and the Right tend to embrace each other at a certain point, just south of rationality. For these people, little points like evidence and common sense provide no...

    Political junkies will recall with a giggle the less than distinguished career of Cynthia McKinney, the six-term congressperson from Georgia who was an embarrassment even to far lefties who are usually immune to embarrassment. (In fact, when she returned to the House in 2005 after having been defeated for re-election in the Democratic primary in 2002, the Democratic House leadership refused to restore her committee seniority. She was defeated again in the Democratic primary in 2006.) Among other things, McKinney was a 9/11 “truther,” and also speculated that the CIA had a role in the killing of rapper Tupac Shakur....

    A former Georgia congresswoman claimed that Israel was responsible for the recent terror attacks in France and Germany. Cynthia McKinney posted on Twitter Saturday night: “Same Israeli photographer captures Nice and Munich tragedies. How likely is that? Remember the Dancing Israelis? …” […] Dancing Israelis refers to a conspiracy theory that five Israeli men were detained by police in New Jersey on 9/11 after being caught celebrating the attack on the World Trade Center. …

    A Texas high school valedictorian has revealed she is an illegal immigrant in her graduation speech. Larissa Martinez told classmates at McKinney Boyd High School that she was one of the 11million undocumented citizens living in the United States after she fled her abusive and alcoholic father in Mexico. The 18-year-old, who has been offered a full scholarship to Yale, said she decided against giving her classmates the 'traditional Hallmark version' of the speech and instead opted for the truth. The teenager told the crowd of thousands: 'Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, are people too'. 'We are here without documentation because...

The two names were on a...

    LUBBOCK, Texas—Dan Backer, the D.C. area attorney widely known for his work with TheTeaParty.net, has come forward as the one responsible for attacking Texas Attorney General candidate State Senator Ken Paxton in a massive half-million dollar Texas ad-buy. Ken Paxton is the Tea Party candidate who Senator Ted Cruz proudly honored. A media professional who works with TheTeaParty.net told Breitbart Texas that the group has no part in what their attorney is doing. Paxton’s opponent, the clear beneficiary of Backer’s ads, is Texas State Rep. Dan Branch. Branch is a former AFL-CIO union group lobbyist who previously introduced an amendment...

    Associated Press ^ | Jun 28, 2015 6:37 PM EDT
    Texas’ conservative Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton calls the Supreme Court decision giving same-sex couples the right to marry a “lawless ruling” and says state workers can cite their religious objections in denying marriage licenses. He warned in a statement Sunday that any clerk, justice of the peace or other administrator who declines to issue a license to a same-sex couple could face litigation or a fine. But in the nonbinding legal opinion, Paxton says “numerous lawyers” stand ready to defend, free of charge, any public official refusing to grant one. …

    **SNIP** Joined by Louisiana and Kansas, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued the Obama administration Thursday seeking to overturn a fee imposed under the Affordable Care Act. The lawsuit seeks a refund of that amount and an order prohibiting future collections of the fee. Paxton says this is “functionally an unconstitutional tax on the states in order to fund the insolvent Obamacare mandate”. Brownback said, “The federal government is threatening to cut $1.6 billion of federal Medicaid funding affecting more than 400,000 Kansans in need unless Kansas pays millions of dollars in taxes to the federal government to support Obamacare”....

    Texas is taking the gloves off when it comes to the fight over Syrian refugees by suing the federal government. Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office announced the lawsuit yesterday, saying the Obama Administration’s plans go against federal law. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that he has filed suit on behalf of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) against the federal government to halt the relocation of refugees from Syria in the state, citing the Refugee Act of 1980, which requires that the federal government consult with state authorities in advance of such relocations. The federal government...

    Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick released a statement July 11 addressing the appeal of President Obama's Executive Amnesty Program. "I stand with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, and a bipartisan 26-state coalition, in support of the rule of law and unified opposition to President Obama's illegal executive amnesty program." "This President has admitted he 'took an action to change the law,' as it applies to U.S. immigration policy. Congress should make laws - not the executive branch."

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton turned himself in Monday morning at the Collin County Jail in McKinney to be booked on three felony charges. Paxton posted a total of $35,000 bond on two counts of securities fraud and one count of failing to register as an investment adviser. Sources said a grand jury in Collin County handed up the indictments Tuesday, which were immediately sealed. The charges stem from an investigation carried out by the Texas Rangers. The first two are first-degree felonies punishable by up to 99 years in prison on conviction. The last is a third-degree felony that...

    The new normal for conservatives in Texas is to be attacked by spurious complaints that trigger outrageous misuses of our justice system. This month, Attorney General Ken Paxton joined other indicted conservatives, such as former Gov. Rick Perry, who do not deserve such abuse. Paxton's indictment resulted from a criminal complaint by state Rep. Byron Cook. Cook is one of the handful of Republican legislators who joined with the Democratic caucus in 2009 to oust the last conservative house speaker, Midland's own Tom Craddick. The House has since been ruled by Cook and other Republicans who joined forces to form...

    Two residents and a dog were saved from potentially dangerous rushing water situations early Friday morning in McKinney. Shortly after 3 a.m., emergency personnel were dispatched to find a man trapped in a tree off Eldorado Parkway near College Street. Rushing water had swept up the man, whom authorities did not identify, and his dog. The man called 911 from the tree, unsure of his exact location but relaying to dispatchers that he was scared the water would overtake him and he'd lose service to his phone, according to Stacie Durham, spokeswoman for the McKinney Fire Department.

    It has been a banner year or so for race mongers. They have been able to paint police as over-zealous racist, jack-booted, white heathens, going about in the tradition of the Ku Klux Klan. This period of time will be etched in school textbooks along with all of the other lies and half-truths portraying the plight of blacks as the fault of “white America”. But the truth will receive far less attention. That is why I am here. The latest so-called police atrocity allegedly took place in McKinney, Texas just a few days ago.

I mean, they don't have any right to be there, I'm sorry to say, don't fire me, please. They don't have any right to be there. It's not their pool. It's somebody else's pool. It's gated, but they found their way in, they're texting out, "Everybody,...

    The fallout from the McKinney pool party viral video controversy continues, as social media-based Social Justice Warriors seek more scalps. On Thursday, pressure from liberal groups led to at least one woman being temporarily removed from her job for her involvement in the McKinney controversy. Another woman has been fired from her teaching position due to comments she made on Facebook. After posting an online “all points bulletin,” online activists are claiming victory about the job status of another man who worked for the Craig Ranch Home Owners Association, who ran into trouble after the hacktivist group Anonymous put out...

    He did nothing wrong. He was afraid for his life. I commend him for his actions." The essence of this opinion, about ex-McKinney, Texas, police officer Eric Casebolt, has been expressed by many, including talk-radio giant Mark Levin. But the verbatim quotation above was in reality authored by high-school principal Alberto Iber (shown). Actually, make that former high-school principal — Iber was just fired for rendering his opinion.
