    The newly-identified remains of a Texas marine killed in World War II are now headed to San Antonio for a proper burial. Marine Corp Reserve 2nd Lt. Ernest A. Matthews Jr., 34, of Dallas, died while fighting Imperial Japanese Forces on the small island of Betio in the Tarawa Atoll of the Gilbert Islands on November 20, 1943. "Over several days of intense fighting at Tarawa, approximately 1,000 Marines and Sailors were killed and more than 2,000 were wounded, while the Japanese were virtually annihilated," according to a statement from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA). Unfortunately, no recovered remains...

Bowman told the Washington Examiner his fellow members of "Texas 44," as the San Antonio-based donors refer to themselves, have been on a fundraising frenzy since Castro tweeted about them on Monday.

    Texas Representative Joaquin Castro's stunt he pulled this week by shining a spotlight on San Antonio citizens and businesses who donated to President Donald J. Trump backfired spectacularly as he was harangued for the obvious danger and division his tweets promoted. But, unfortunately for Rep. Castro, the ire did not come just from conservatives and Trump supporters, but also his own donors. Apparently, the list of MAGA supporters also included folks who gave to Castro's campaign as well. On Sunday night, Rep. Castro tweeted, "Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner...

    Democrat Congressman Joaquin Castro, represents a district that encompasses San Antonio, Texas. Using his twitter account today, Representative Castro posted a list of local donors to the Donald Trump campaign directing his followers to target those ordinary citizens. [Tweet here] Pay close attention to this current method of political targeting; and overlay the law of unintended consequences to the current gun control discussion surrounding redflag laws. Ultimately what far-left Joaquin Castro is doing is exactly what will happen when arbitrary rules of defining people for targeting are pushed into law. History is full of examples where this exact process was...

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise rebuked Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro on Tuesday for tweeting out a list of Trump donors and their employers in the San Antonio area. People should not be personally targeted for their political views. Period. This isnt a game. Its dangerous, and lives are at stake. I know this firsthand, Scalise wrote on Twitter. Scalise was shot in the 2017 attempted mass assassination of Republican congressmen and nearly died. Castros tweet listed the names and employers of 44 San Antonio residents, including 11 retirees, who donated the federal maximum of $2,700 to President Donald Trumps...

    President Donald Trump's reelection campaign has taken issue with a Facebook post from Texas congressman Joaquin Castro that lists the names and employers of Trump donors in San Antonio and accuses the private citizens of "contributing to harmful rhetoric that targets the Hispanic community and so many others." Castro, twin brother of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro, posted late Monday night on Facebook that he was "sad to see so many San Antonians on this list of maximum donors to Donald Trump." He specifically called out two companies, including a popular BBQ restaurant, and posted a list of 44...

    Pvt. Shamika Burrage lost her entire left ear during a car accident on her way to visit family in Texas, says a report from the U.S. Army. The soldier needed counseling to deal with her emotions after the accident, including dealing with discontentment about the way she looked. At the urging of her counselor, Burrage looked into plastic surgery for the missing ear. Thats when she found surgeons at William Beaumont Army Medical Center (WBAMC) who had a radical idea. The medical team wanted to use cartilage from Burrages ribs to form a new, non-artificial ear. The ear would then...

The lack of an answer proves what? That the era of the non-issue issue has yet a ways to run? Yes, that may be it. Alas. I can't believe I'm writing about a fast-food franchise. It's come to that. In the eyes of my progressive friends (some of them), the dividing line between righteousness and evil passes through the drive-thru window.

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit against San Antonio to make them comply with an investigation into whether the citys recent decision to ban Chick-fil-A from an airport constituted religious bigotry. Submitted Monday in the District Court for Travis County, the lawsuit accuses the city of withholding documents such as emails from the Attorney Generals investigation, in violation of the Texas Public Information Act. The public has an interest in the information, the lawsuit states. The information sought by the Attorney General relates to the City of San Antonios decision to exclude Chick-fil-A from a public contract because...

Total cases have gone to from virtually nothing last August to 2,031 now and the data suggest that the trend has not peaked.

According to the Voice of America: U.S. Border Patrol agents have apprehended more than 150 African immigrants [sic] attempting unauthorized crossings into Texas at the U.S. southern border within the past week, according to U.S. Customs and...

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) sued the city of San Antonio Monday for documents relating to its decision to block Chick-fil-A from its airport. The lawsuit seeks emails and internal communications from city employees and city council members relating to the Chick-fil-A contract. City Council Member Roberto Trevino, who introduced the proposal blocking the chain as an airport vendor, cited its legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior, promoting Texas Republicans to accuse the city of violating the companys religious liberty. The City of San Antonio claims that it can hide documents because it anticipates being sued, Paxton said in a statement...

    City officials in San Antonio, who discriminated against Christian-owned Chick-fil-A in their airport contracting, are trying to hide from the public their conversations now that theyre under investigation for their behavior. WND reported in December the chain with the famed cattle urging Eat More Chikin has been forecast to leap past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendys to become the third largest restaurant chain in the U.S. The liberal hatred for the chain erupted when Dan Cathy, the son of founder S. Truett Cathy, said in an interview in 2012 he supports traditional marriage. Since then, students on college campuses...
