    Despite media claims to the contrary, election Mexican officials previously promised to allow the invasion of Central American migrants. There is a history here. Heavily financed horde of Central American migrants has overwhelmed token resistance from Mexican military and advanced north toward Southern U.S. border.  As described by Associated Press today: “growing army of migrants resumes march toward US.”  This is a well financed, well organized, left-wing political operation strategically timed to reach the U.S. border and coincide with the 2018 mid-term election.Estimates as to the number of economic migrants varies between 7,000 to 10,000 and the numbers are growing...

    Supporters are lining up for President Trump's big rally in Texas, one whole day before the event will take place. With his 2020 campaign boasting "100,000+" people being interested in attending, lines of people outside the venue, shown across multiple blocks in photos tweeted by CNN's Betsy Klein, further indicate high enthusiasm for the event. The rally, set for Monday evening at the Toyota Center in Houston, is poised to be the most powerful boost yet for Sen. Ted Cruz, who will share the stage with the man he once opposed for the presidency. The Republican incumbent faces a surprisingly...

    Michael Avenatti has backed off his pledge to hold a "resistance" rally in Texas on the same day President Trump holds one for Sen. Ted Cruz in Houston. As the Trump campaign announced that more than 100,000 requests were made for tickets for the event Monday, Avenatti told Geoff Bennett of NBC News that a scheduling conflict prevented him from holding a counter-rally. "It's Beto's show because it's his race," Avenatti was quoted as saying, referring to Cruz's Democratic challenger, Rep. Beto O'Rourke. Early last month, Avenatti, who is the lawyer to porn star Stormy Daniels, said he would hold...

    A Texas man grew so frustrated over receiving text messages from the U.S. Senate campaign of U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, that he's taking the organization to court. A class-action lawsuit filed against the Beto for Texas campaign on behalf of all Texans alleges the group sent text messages to voters without obtaining permission to contact them, therefore violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. The law bans the use of automated telephone equipment to send texts or calls to a person’s cellphone without their permission -- except for emergency purposes. The suit was filed in...

    A woman arrested on voter fraud charges just two weeks ago was arrested again Friday afternoon on new charges. Modesta Vela, 60, was arrested Friday afternoon at the nonprofit food pantry in Roma, confirmed Brenda Lee, spokesperson for the Starr County Special Crimes Unit. SCU investigators served Vela with four arrest warrants related to voter fraud, Lee said, which 229th District Attorney Omar Escobar clarified were for charges of tampering with a government record. Escobar said those records, in this case, referred to voter registration applications. A bond of $15,000 was set for each count. The arrest was a result...

    President Donald Trump tried to stoke fears of socialism Friday as he bashed Rep. Beto O'Rourke, the Democrat pushing to upset Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in red Texas. Ahead of his Monday visit to Houston, Trump called the 46-year-old representative a "total lightweight compared to Ted Cruz" who "comes nowhere near representing the values and desires" of Texans. He suggested O'Rourke wants to "turn Texas into Venezuela" — deploying rhetoric he has used in an attempt to portray Democrats as dangerous leftists as the GOP tries to defend its congressional majorities on Nov. 6.

    A 70-year-old Texas man was sentenced to more than seven years in prison after pleading guilty to buying an automatic rifle in the 1980s, CBS station KTVT reports. Alfred Pick of Plano purchased the M14 rifle at a gun show that was similar to the weapon he had as an Army lieutenant in the Vietnam War. "This gun was very rare," Pick attorney Ryne Sandel told KTVT. "You see, at that time it was rare to see one, so he instantly, you know, had a connection to it." The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives raided Pick's house...

    The San Antonio City Council approved a $450 million redevelopment plan for the Alamo, marking a new chapter for the nearly 300-year-old site. The council voted for the proposal on Thursday, signing off on disputed changes, including moving the 1930s Cenotaph memorial, the San Antonio Express-News reported. The vote comes after months of debate by city officials and residents over elements of the redevelopment plan, such as closing streets to vehicle traffic, moving the Cenotaph, and using fences or barriers to control public access. The council approved a 50-year lease that gives the Texas General Land Office management and control...

    If you get your news from the media, then you will have heard that Jamal Khashoggi was a heroic reform who sought freedom for the region, and was brutally murdered to the strains of hip-hop music by a legion of Saudi assassins. And it was all recorded on his Apple Watch. If you're interested in the facts, instead of the fake news, you probably already know that Jamal Khashoggi was a Muslim Brotherhood leader and an old friend of Osama bin Laden. He's being mourned by the media that backed the Muslim Brotherhood.

There is… and I know I went through this the other day. But I am continuing to see it, and this is what makes me suspicious of this story, folks. You know, I read my tech blogs. I read everything.

    In high school, Jamal Khashoggi had a good friend. His name was Osama bin Laden. “We were hoping to establish an Islamic state anywhere,” Khashoggi reminisced about their time together in the Muslim Brotherhood. “We believed that the first one would lead to another, and that would have a domino effect which could reverse the history of mankind.” The friendship endured with Jamal Khashoggi following Osama bin Laden to Afghanistan. Khashoggi credited Adel Batterjee, listed at one time as one of “the world’s foremost terrorist financiers” by the Treasury Department, with bringing him to Afghanistan to report on the fighting....

    ISTANBUL — The rulers of Saudi Arabia are considering blaming a top intelligence official close to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, three people with knowledge of the Saudi plans said Thursday. The plan to assign blame to Gen. Ahmed al-Assiri, a high-ranking adviser to the crown prince, would be an extraordinary recognition of the magnitude of international backlash to hit the kingdom since the death of Mr. Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi dissident. A resident of Virginia and contributor to The Washington Post, Mr. Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul 16...

For good measure, Johnson has suggested that Trump is an admirer of murderers.

During an appearance on CNN, Castro cited “reporting that Jared Kushner may have, with U.S. intelligence, delivered a hit list, an enemies list, to the crown prince, to MBS, in Saudi Arabia and that the prince may have acted on that, and one of the people he took action against is Mr. Khashoggi.” Curtis Houck ✔ @CurtisHouck Video: Here's...
