    The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents on Monday unanimously approved the creation of a $100 million scholarship fund to help the system's 11 universities address "diversity issues," as well as bolster aid meant for students who are economically disadvantaged or in the first generation of their families to attend college. The aid comes in the middle of the economic crisis spurred by COVID-19, which has left many families out of work. It also comes as protests continue in Texas and nationwide over police brutality and systemic racism. At the A&M System's flagship campus in College Station, protests in...

    I received word from 2ndDivisionVet wife that he passed away. I am not using his real name here out of respect but, will ping his handle and his wife can if she would like. I didn't ask what he died from but, knowing him for better than 10 years, I knew of medical conditions and a few terrible Operations he had. He was a wonderful human being who cared deeply for his fellow Americans and the ideals that make this country so great that people the world over want to come here and be free, live in liberty and be...

  • I am DONE with Fox News!

    Fox news offered the WORST election coverage EVER! With sheer delight they announced WHILE PEOPLE WERE STILL VOTING in the west that the house was going to be won by the Democrats. To me it seemed like a calculated effort to suppress the vote to make sure that there would be divided government. I'm sure they calculated that ratings would increase with the shenanagans that the democrats will pull in the next two years. Well, they will not increase ratings in my house. I will never watch them again. They make me sick. Also with the smiling idiot that kept...

    A federal judge ordered the San Diego Unified School District on Tuesday to hand over evidence detailing its correspondence with the Council on American-Islamic Relations about the implementation of a controversial anti-Islamophobia bullying initiative at San Diego public schools. The development is the latest in a long-running saga concerning school officials in San Diego coordinating with CAIR, an American-Muslim civil rights and religious organization with known links to a number of anti-Israel groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood. The controversy began in April when the San Diego school district announced it was launching an anti-Islamophobia initiative to combat what it...

    Cork GainesNovember 1, 2016 The first College Football Playoff ranking is out and the Alabama Crimson Tide are No. 1. Alabama is followed by Clemson, Michigan, and Texas A&M. The first teams on the outside, looking in, are Washington (No. 5) and Ohio State (No. 6). The biggest surprise is Texas A&M being ranked fourth, ahead of Washington. The Aggies are ranked seventh in the Associated Press poll after having lost 33-14 to Alabama. Washington is 8-0 and is the only undefeated Power-5 conference team that is not among the top four. Interestingly, this ranking includes two teams from the...

    Rick Perry ended our conversation with a prediction – Texas A&M 35, Alabama 24 – but in a true politician's flourish, he added a walk-off catch phrase: "Roll, tears, roll," Perry said, sounding quite pleased with the line. Yes, the governor of Texas and 2012 Republican presidential aspirant was talking trash at the Crimson Tide. If it costs him the state of Alabama in a much-rumored 2016 bid to become the 45th president of the United States, well, he's prepared to live with that. **snip**Perry is many things, but timid is not among them. A man who has a concealed...

NEW YORK – Mohammed Rashed, who placed a bomb that damaged a Pan Am jet over the Pacific in 1982, killing a Japanese high schooler, was released from federal prison Wednesday, a U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman said. “He was released early this morning,” Chris Burke said, adding that Rashed, 63, was being held at a facility in Pennsylvania....

    Student Senate will vote Wednesday on a bill that calls on the Texas A&M University and the Texas State Legislature to allow anyone with a valid concealed handgun license to carry a handgun on the Texas A&M campus and within buildings. The Texas A&M Legislative Affairs Committee finalized wording of the bill Wednesday night and sent it to Student Senate for a final vote. The Texas government currently allows universities to create their own concealed carry policies. Texas A&M policy says a concealed handgun is permitted on campus, but not inside buildings. During the meeting, students expressed their concern that...
  • Hot Air exclusive: Perry raises $17.1 million in Q3

    Hot Air ^ | October 5, 2011 | Ed Morrissey
    A source on the Rick Perry campaign tells Hot Air that the Texas governor conducted some Texas-size fundraising in the third quarter. Coming in just a little over halfway through, Perry raised $17.1 million. That number would put Perry somewhere between $4-6 million ahead of Mitt Romney’s rumored total for Q3, according to this report last week from the Boston Globe. It’s also likely to far outpace Herman Cain’s fundraising or that of the other Republicans currently in the race. The pace is even more impressive. Perry had 49 days in which to raise funds, rather than the full 92...

    Robert A. Hall, former Massachusetts Senator | 4/7/2010 | Bitsy
    Worth the read! By Robert A. Hall, former Massachusets Senator I'm 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired. I'm tired of...

    The courts have deliberated over the Second Amendment for some time and it has been confirmed that individual gun ownership rights are indeed provided for in the amendment. Americans' right to own firearms is no longer in question. Today, the bigger issue is what to make of concealed carry laws. In the U.S., only Illinois, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C., don't allow any type of concealed carry. Every other state has joined the majority faction after seeing the benefits that can come from allowing citizens to lawfully carry firearms. Concealed carry laws prove their worth all the time, such as when...

    Joy from rescue of 5 Aggie boaters turns grim when 6th member of capsized boat crew is found dead amid wreckage A day that started with the joyous rescue of five crew members of a Texas A&M University at Galveston sailboat closed with the somber discovery of the sixth sailor's body in the wreckage of the sunken ship. Roger Stone, whose body was recovered by a salvage crew Sunday about 27 miles southeast of Freeport, was called a hero for helping two students escape from below decks seconds before the Cynthia Woods capsized. "I'm sure that's what lost his life,"...

    There have been many sites crop up recently that claim to predict what will happen in November. My favorite since 2004 - and I think the most accurate - has been Election Projection. They predicted the 2004 race between Bush and Kerry to within 3 EVs of the actual result and got every Senate race right in 2006. Anyone out there agree? Disagree? Discuss...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraq's Kurdish president backed his Shiite allies Wednesday by openly supporting a militia that Sunni Arab leaders have accused of killing members of their minority. Clashes in Baghdad and other attacks around Iraq killed at least eight people as the Sunni-dominated insurgency pressed on with its campaign against the Shiite-led government. The bloody wave of violence that broke out after the April 28 announcement of Iraq's new Shiite and Kurdish dominated government has killed more than 874 people. During the spree, more than 10 Sunni and Shiite clerics have been killed in apparent tit-for-tat slayings that raised...

    The Next Stage Gates ends duties at A&M with ceremonies By HOLLY HUFFMAN Eagle Staff Writer Texas A&M University senior Caley Langewalter stood silent and still, his arms folded behind his back, as he prepared for the commissioning ceremony that would transform him from student to second lieutenant. Standing on the stage just a few feet away was Robert Gates - outgoing A&M president, newly confirmed secretary of defense and soon to be one of Langewalter's top bosses. Both Langewalter and Gates had started their tenure in Aggieland in the fall of 2002 - Langewalter as an Aggie freshman and...

    IT IS the axis of evil most feared by the security services - veteran, cool-headed Irish terrorists teaming up with Islamic extremists. Now, in the wake of the failed bid to blow up 10 transatlantic aircraft, the Sunday Express has pieced together the links between the two groups that signal a new era of terror. There is also a further potent mix to the pot - former special forces' soldiers-turned-mercenaries from Britain and the US who are willing to sell their deadly expertise to the highest bidder. The Sunday Express has learned: Continuity IRA terrorists have visited Iran and Syria...
