    This is the latest update on the Democrat civil war. First let’s welcome Fox News to “frontline” reporting on the Democrat civil war. Those of us that have been watching this circus unfold are happy to see other people “get it.” The media’s insistence upon ignoring the new generic poll lead for Republicans and Donald Trump’s consistently high approval ratings cannot hide the fact that the Democrat party is imploding by the week. This week another round of Democrat primaries spilled a few more gallons of Insane Democrat blood. For those just joining us, The Insane Democrats, are the ones...

    The mass arrests of witnesses to the Twin Peaks Mass Murder in Waco three years ago was such an Assault on the ideal of justice that it is difficult to list all the villains. That has to be the reason the two judges who have “adjudicated” all the cases, 19th State District Judge Ralph Strother and Matt Johnson of the 54th District Court have generally escaped the contempt and animus they deserve. A recent federal case in New York illustrates what a real judge might say about an analogous arrest and detention. Suspicious Clothing A 16-year-old Honduran boy living in...

"A threat? He didn't threaten anyone. He didn't do anything but play." Amy...

The case actually began in 2012, when four women who worked at Karpen’s Houston area abortion facilities contacted Operation Rescue with information that he was violating the law. Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Vice President of Operation Rescue, received photos of large babies that one Karpen employee had taken at his abortion facility with...

    PLANO (WBAP/KLIF News) — Days after Arlington pulled out of the bid for becoming the site of Amazon’s next headquarters, the City of Plano says it still believes it’s in the running. Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere told WFAA TV’s “Inside Texas Politics” he hasn’t heard otherwise. “They’ve been pretty hush. The rumors have been out there, so I don’t know,” LaRosiliere said. “We’d love to have them. What mayor wouldn’t want to create so many jobs for their community?” LaRosiliere, who has been the city’s mayor since 2013, added that even if Plano loses out, he hopes Amazon picks the...

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) said there was not “a single piece of legislation” that would have prevented the recent school shooting in Texas. Warner said, “I don’t think there’s a single piece of legislation, but there’s a series of actions. Are there things we can do that would improve the safety of our schools? Absolutely.” He continued, “Should there be more mental health counseling for troubled teens, the number of the incidents caused by young men time and time again? Absolutely. Making sure people are safer with their own firearms? Absolutely.

    I have been regular, listening to Glenn Beck and Mark Levin in the past and enjoyed their musings, analysis, postings. Then they got behind Cruz they made me wonder. After Trump fought for and won the nomination, they went nuts. Successful businessman, family man, one seeing the derailment of Regan's GOP into RATs ditch became the enemy of these "big mouths". They disregarded the support of majority of disenchanted population, they "know better" - he is not "good enough conservative". I gather he is supposed to be as conservative as establishment republicans, who shafted recent Tea Party elected reps into...

The interview starts off with Beck denying he said Cruz was “anointed” by God to be president. Beck said, “I never said he was anointed by God to be president of the United States.

    When the shooter left the room briefly, Abel and others left the closet and tried to barricade the door. But the shooter pushed it open, spotted a student he knew, and with anger said, "Surprise!" before shooting the student in the chest. "I'm still trying to process everything," Abel said in an interview. One of Pagourtzis' classmates who died in the attack, Shana Fisher, "had 4 months of problems from this boy," her mother, Sadie Rodriguez, wrote in a private message to the Los Angeles Times on Facebook. "He kept making advances on her and she repeatedly told him no."...

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | May 20, 2018 | Callum Borchers, The Washington Post
    Las Vegas introduced Americans to the rapid-fire lethality of bump stocks. Parkland reminded the public how quickly someone can inflict mass carnage with an AR-15, the weapon of choice in many rampages. But Friday's shooting at Santa Fe High School, which left 10 dead, was carried out with a pistol and a shotgun - firearms that even gun-control advocates generally regard as utilitarian. The reality that weapons not included in proposed assault-rifle bans can still exact a double-digit death toll further complicates a wrenching national debate about how to prevent future tragedies. "That's true" that weapons other than assault rifles...

    “Celebrities” will do the darnedest things to virtue signal for a little love from their low-information fanbases (and get their names mentioned again). Retired porn star Mia Khalifa sought fifteen more minutes of fame yesterday with the help of the Austin, Texas Police Department. Following the Santa Fe High School shooting, she very publicly surrendered her shotgun to a police officer for destruction. “They couldn’t have made it easier,” she wrote on Instagram. Yes, the now-retired porn star with the tattoo of a Derringer under her right arm (we’ll let you verify that yourself) used the dead kids in...

    Accused Santa Fe HS shooter Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, won’t face the death penalty if he is convicted of capital murder, and could be paroled when he’s 57, thanks to two US Supreme Court rulings. A 2005 decision made it unconstitutional for anyone under 18 at the time of their crime to face execution, and a 2012 ruling outlawed life without parole.
