    By now you’ve heard the news: San Antonio, Texas, has banned Chick-fil-A from San Antonio International Airport. The ban, passed by the city council in the form of a vendor contract, is based on a hit piece by the left-wing Think Progress. This the latest attempt by some on the left to ostracize and demonize Chick-fil-A over statements made by its founder or for its charity work -- matters that have nothing to do with its business competence. City councilman from district 1, Roberto Trevino, made the move to punish Chick-fil-A, saying “With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro isnt ruling out direct payments to African-Americans for the legacy of slavery a stand separating him from his 2020 rivals. If under the Constitution we compensate people because we take their property, why wouldnt you compensate people who actually were property, the former Obama-era housing secretary and ex-San Antonio mayor said on Sunday. Castro was among the last of a pack of 2020 candidates to speak at the South by Southwest Festival in Texas, in what amounted to one of the biggest gatherings of the Democratic field yet.

Counseling sessions for all 12 of you devastated fans will begin at 10:00 tomorrow. One of the most entertaining aspects of this Democrat race for the losers ring thus far has been watching how our fake news media considers it to be big news when a billionaire like Bloomberg or Tom Steyer makes his inevitable announcement that hes not really going run, not at all. Why is this news? This is the fourth time weve been through...

    Someone sent me a Chuck Norris fact that says: Had Chuck Norris been present at the Battle of the Alamo, the southern border of Texas would be extended a few thousand miles to Guatemala. I dont know about that, but I can tell you Ive found some of my greatest heroes at that Texan O.K. Corral. Sunday, Feb. 24, marks the anniversary of the day in 1836 that those Alamo defenders called for assistance. Colonel William Travis sent out that call for help on behalf of the Texan troops defending the Alamo, the old Spanish mission and fortress in the...

    The Texas Department of Public Safety's "Gang Threat Assessment" from 2018 shows Tangos in Austin had the highest number of arrests for homicide and sexual assault and continue growing at a fast rate and maintain the highest membership numbers among all Texas-based gangs. The FBI warns Tango Blast works with cartels and ranks in the top three gangs for cross-border crimes, including child sex trafficking. They are associated sometimes with the cartels that are pushing narcotics through the I-35 corridor, and into the city itself. They are associated with them, but we dont see random acts of violence with [other]...

    Hundreds of leaders and volunteers within Southern Baptist churches across the nation have been accused of sexual misconduct against young churchgoers for decades - many of them quietly returning to church roles even after being convicted for sex crimes. A bombshell investigation by the Houston Chronicleand the San Antonio Express-News found that over the last 20 years, about 380 Southern Baptist church leaders and volunteers have faced credible accusations of sexual misconduct. Of those, roughly 220 were convicted of sex crimes or received plea deals, in cases involving more than 700 victims in all, the report found. Many accusers were...

    I don't think I'm seeing/saw things. While watching the 5PM local news on 12 (ABC) out of San Antonio they brought up Ralph Northam and his situation. They then ran a clip from ABC news that in the lower left hand corner had a box that read "Republican Ralph Northam"!!!!!!!!!! Just for my satisfaction did anybody else see this ABC clip. I don't watch any national news but am about 99% sure it said "Republican Ralph Northam". More fake news?

    Julin Castro, the former housing secretary and former mayor of San Antonio, announced on Saturday that he would run for president, one of the most high-profile Latino Democrats ever to seek the partys nomination. His first campaign stop will be in Puerto Rico, where he will speak on Monday at the Latino Victory Funds annual summit and meet with residents still struggling to recover from Hurricane Maria. Later in the week, his campaign said, he will go to New Hampshire. Mr. Castro, in prepared remarks that he was set to deliver in San Antonio on Saturday, said, When my grandmother...

    Megachurch pastor John Hagee is warning his San Antonio congregation and international following of a world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015. And, no, he's not talking about Fiesta. Hagee, founder of the Cornerstone Church, points to four blood moons, a rare astronomical event of four consecutive and complete lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad, which begins April 15. The San Antonio pastor asserts the dates of the eclipses signify a major event that will change history in a book released in October, a series of sermons and a TV special airing on Tuesday, the first...

    How do you know your church is approved by God? One way is to see it attacked by Satanists on Christmas Eve. My church in San Antonio is a small one, less than 150 members in a quiet non-descript building in a middle-class section of town compared to the many larger churches with massive facilities. I dare say some of you probably live in houses bigger than this church. But we are a church with solid roots in the gospel of Jesus Christ and we've been praying earnestly for God's presence and direction in our lives and growth among our...

Plus, he just ran his fifth marathon this past Sunday at the San Antonio Rock n Roll Marathon. Oh, and hes 85 years of age. (The word old doesnt have a place in his vocabulary.)

    Texas attorney general sued the San Antonio police chief Friday for what he said are violations of the states immigration law targeting sanctuary cities and sought millions of dollars in sanctions. The lawsuit Ken Paxton filed in state court was a rare enforcement action of Senate Bill 4, passed last year by the Texas Legislature and mostly upheld by a federal appeals court. SB4 is one of the toughest state laws targeting illegal immigration. It prohibited law enforcement agencies from refusing detainer requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, doing anything to stop an officer from asking about a suspects...

    SAN ANTONIO - The name of a new Texas strip club is causing controversy before one dancer has gone on stage, KENS reported. San Antonio officials and residents are concerned that the Emergency Room Gentlemans Lounge could be mistaken for an actual emergency room, the television station reported. That could become a problem for people attempting to reach a real emergency room in a medical crisis, officials said. Michael Shannon, San Antonios development services director, said that the strip clubs owners did not apply for a permit to put up the sign, which will result in a $300 fine, KENS...

    Generations of Texans have rightly drawn inspiration and strength from the heroes of the Alamo the brave men who fought to the death to defend the battle-scarred mission in San Antonio in 1836 in the fight for Texas independence from Mexico. These freedom fighters are a symbol of valor for all Americans. It is bizarre, then, that an advisory group recommended to the Texas Board of Education that it remove the words all the heroic defenders from the states social studies curriculum describing the men who gave their lives at the Alamo. The Board of Education was holding a...

    What began with a quick grab-and-go theft Saturday at the San Antonio Aquarium -- the suspect leaving a trail of water drops as he hurried away with his dripping prize of a small but very much alive shark -- ended Monday with the safe return of "Miss Helen" to her tank at the aquarium. The 16-inch female horn shark was taken during a heist that aquarium officials said was no spur-of-the-moment, let's-steal-a-shark thing. "The suspects staked out the pool for more than an hour" to wait for the right moment, the aquarium said in a statement. The search for the...

    Kino Jimenez, who is accused of attacking a teen wearing a MAGA hat at a San Antonio area Whataburger restaurant, has been banned from the Texas Green Party as a result, Heavy learned in an exclusive interview with a top Green Party official.
