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. …

    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.

Reviewing the video footage, Napolitano explains to host Stuart Varney that Casebolt, who Napolitano calls a “hothead,” appears to have committed an illegal assault: Varney: The police officer could be guilty of a crime?

People have been coming from outside of the community into the subdivision and have vandalized homes and frightened neighbors. This behavior escalated after the pool party...

    It would appear that the BGI Narrative Weavers are still singing from the same sheet of music. Going through media reports it appears that familiar actors and entities have quickly inserted themselves into the confrontation, deliberately driving a local issue national. (Sound familiar?) Enter stage left, another familiar group: the Soros front group NY-based ColorofChange, co-founded by Van Jones. ColorofChange were instrumental in leveraging the Trayvon Martin shooting to end the Stop-and-Frisk policing policy. The organization’s new Executive Director, Rashad Robinson, is an experienced Narrative weaver . Before moving to ColorOfChange in 2011, he was the Senior Director of Programs...

    <p>The video made me cry because it showed me how black children are not allowed to play. How they’re not allowed to just be (expletive deleted) kids. How their play becomes criminalized and how they’re socialized to become black adults who internalize that their very breathing selves are criminal.</p>

    A police officer slams an unarmed 15-year-old girl in a bikini to the ground, pulls his gun and kneels on her as teens on either side of him shout and, of course, record the encounter. Within hours, millions watch the video: Some see a defenseless black teen being manhandled by an out-of-control white cop; others see a lone, scared officer in the crowded, chaotic aftermath of a fight he doesn’t yet understand. Cellphone video has become as much a part of policing as tickets and handcuffs. Video images of police shootings have sparked national turmoil. But Friday’s ugly, cacophonous...

    Facts did not matter much when the race-activist community held a press conference outside of the McKinney Police Station earlier today. This was in response to the now infamous pool party that took place last weekend in the suburban Craig Ranch subdivision of a Dallas suburb. Tempers flared, feelings frayed, and one speaker was compelled to threaten the Texas city with bringing in the Nation of Islam’s volatile spiritual leader Louis Farrakhan as a solution.

    You won't find this on any local news, but what is happening is a crime on a massive scale. Here's the story. My friend works at a section 8 apartment complex, which means that the taxpayers pay most of the rent there. Last week he sent me this picture of a late model Jaguar parked at his complex. His caption of the picture was "Section 8, rent always late". I asked him how much was their rent. "It just went up, to $80." A MONTH?!! "A month." This means that taxpayers are providing the Jag owner over $1,000 a month...

    The host of a Texas pool party that led to the suspension of a police officer says things took a turn for the violent when a neighbor began hurling racial slurs and insults at party-goers. A woman identified as Tatiana Rhodes, 19, said that she and some friends had organized and were enjoying the party at the Craig Ranch North Community Pool on June 5 when the conflict with a white neighbor broke out. “This lady was saying racial slurs to some friends that came to the cookout. She was saying such things as ‘black effer’ and ‘that’s why you...

The general demand list was that the group wanted 10-year police veteran Eric Casebolt fired and criminally charged. Executive Director of Justice Seekers, Rev. Ronald...
