    Houston Chronicle ^ | 11/08/2018 | David Wood
    On July 31, the Houston Chronicle published a front-page story with a provocative headline. "'We've moved on': Political anger after Harvey has eased," it declared, adding: "Experts believe disaster response is unlikely to be a factor in November." It was a significant story by veteran reporter and Austin bureau chief Mike Ward. It asserted that Houston residents initially fed up with the uneven government response to Hurricane Harvey actually weren't going to blame politicians after all. The story began with West Houston resident Betsy Scheer, whose anger had faded. She was going to vote Republican. "My friends are mostly the...

    O'Rourke, the Democratic nominee for Senate in Texas, crashed his car in 1998 and was eventually arrested for driving while intoxicated.

A police report from the incident revealed a witness stated O'Rourke attempted to leave the scene after he crashed his vehicle.

    The Dallas Morning News’s editorial board called on Democratic Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke on Friday to provide clarification regarding where he stands on the migrant caravan that is heading towards the U.S border. O’Rourke, who is trying to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, has been dodging the issue, despite immigration and border security overwhelmingly being the top issues for voters in Texas. Cruz urged reporters on Friday to probe O’Rourke into what he intends to do if elected to the Senate on Nov. 6. “Two basic [questions] every reporter should ask Beto today,” Cruz tweeted. “(1) should the “caravan” be...

    Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee in Florida's gubernatorial race, said Wednesday that police are going "too far" if they have to pull out a gun, baton, or taser when approaching a potential suspect. Gillum made the comment on the liberal podcast "Pod Save America," where he pushed back against his Republican critics who believe he is an anti-police candidate. "All this stuff that they say, I've got to let them know, anti-police? No. I'm for police accountability, but law enforcement society cannot work and, quite frankly, law enforcement cannot do its job if it does not have a trusting relationship...

    The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross cannot be questioned in lawsuits about a citizenship question that will appear on the 2020 census, which halted a scheduled deposition. Dozens of states and big cities have brought about lawsuits over the question. They argue that a citizenship question will keep illegal aliens from participating in the census, which would drastically shift state and federal representation and dollars. Of course, that would be negatively impact Democrats. A federal court in New York had previously said Ross had to provide a deposition as part of the lawsuits brought about...

    As Twitchy told you last night, a group of women outed as sexual assault survivors (in some cases incorrectly) in a campaign ad for Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp are currently exploring legal action. With good reason. What Heitkamp’s campaign did isn’t just reckless and outrageous; it’s also potentially very dangerous. At least one woman outed in the ad is now reportedly fearing for her life:

    Dr. Rachel McKinnon became the first ever transgender world champion in a womens cycling event this weekend. She whooped them little girls. Rachel McKinnon is standing in the middle of the photo. The other thing that makes this incident particularly interesting is that McKinnon believes that men who identity as women should not be required to take testosterone suppressing hormones (let alone have gender reassignment surgery) in order to participate in women’s athletic competitions.

    If the latest poll from The New York Times/Siena College is any indicator, Taylor Swift’s endorsement of Democrat Phil Bredesen for Senate may have actually hurt his campaign. The Times polled 593 voters across the state of Tennessee between October 8-11 and found Blackburn was leading 54-40 with a margin of error of 4.2 percent. Swift’s endorsement of Bredesen was on October 8th.

Only a re-election party on the night of November 3, 2020, could possibly offer the same vindication for America’s most unconventional commander in chief as the 36 hours in which two foundational strands of his political career are combining in a sudden burst of history. . . There is more evidence than the soon-to-be reshaped Supreme Court and the roaring economy to make a case that Trump is building...

    Leland Keyser’s relative has accused Christine Blasey Ford of throwing her “witness” and lifelong friend–Keyser–“under the bus.” This family member also sounds skeptical of Ford’s allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Ford, the woman whose accusations of sexual conduct have crumbled under scrutiny, claimed that Keyser, a lifelong friend since high school, would validate her allegation. Instead, Keyser said in a statement that she not only does not remember the house party where the 1982 incident allegedly took place, but she also has never even met Kavanaugh. Although Ford’s story has countless discrepancies already, the fact that all three...

    Democratic senators put on quite a show Thursday at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing. Desperate for a "gotcha" moment that would disqualify the Trump nominee, the senators asked pointed questions and gave lectures about transparency. But, they embarrassed themselves in the process. Sen. Cory Booker (NJ) got the loudest laugh.Booker's theatrics came at the very beginning of the hearing. He interrupted Chairman Chuck Grassley's opening remarks to announce that he had broken Senate rules and released "committee confidential" documents about Kavanaugh's opinions on racial profiling. He even referred to himself as "Spartacus," as if he was some kind of...

Laura Loomer published the official report to her website.

    It seems the blunder was impacting posts that contained the word "selamat" – which can mean safe or unhurt, but can also mean congratulations depending on the context. The word was misinterpreted by Facebook's algorithms to mean the latter, causing it to initiate the festive animations whenever it was shared. “This feature (a text animation triggered by typing ‘congrats’) is widely available on Facebook globally, however we regret that it appeared in this unfortunate context and have since turned off the feature locally,” Lisa Stratton, a Facebook spokesperson, told Motherboard in an email. “Our hearts go out to the people...
