    A Little Elm police officer was fatally shot Tuesday afternoon in a standoff with a gunman that stretched for hours and forced dozens of neighbors to evacuate. Detective Jerry Walker died at a hospital, Little Elm police Chief Rodney Harrison said at a news conference Tuesday night. The suspect was found dead in the home in the 1400 block of Turtle Cove Drive shortly after 10 p.m., Denton County Sheriff's Lt. Orlando Hinojosa said. He did not say how the man died....

My Russian friend, Venjamin, who has more music in his little pinky than I have in my whole body, but he doesn't really do the 'Highbrow' thing, asks me, 'Do you think there are any modern composers as good as those classical ones in the 17- and 1800s?'

    The commutation of Chelsea Mannings sentence is getting all the attention today but President Obama also commuted the sentence of Oscar Lpez Rivera, a former Chicago community organizer turned FALN terrorist who was convicted of seditious conspiracy in 1981. Lpez Rivera is considered a political prisoner by many on the left but a domestic terrorist by many on the right. Mother Jones described his background in a 2014 plea for his release: In 1981, Lpez was charged with armed robbery, possession of an unregistered firearm, and interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, allegedly as part of a larger plot to...

    It's been so long since we could count on courts, DA's and the Attorney General to protect the little, non-elite people, our thinking cap might be a bit askew & in need of straightening out. After all, Frankfurt School Point 8 of 11 is 'An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime'. But it turns out, that while some public figures have limited immunity from libel laws when they're assassinating the President-Elect's character, the ordinary radicals who talk up trashing what's left of our country, are eminently prosecutable for their crimes.Hero Abbie Hoffman of the Chicago 7 On...

He praised news outfits that didn't publish a story about a document that describes alleged Russian efforts to compromise him, even though many of those news organizations had the story for months and held on to it. The two press outfits that did publish the story, CNN and BuzzFeed, got whipped by the president-elect. Trump called them "fake news" and refused to take questions from reporters representing their organizations. You almost have to wonder, though, if he shouldn't be going easy on them, especially BuzzFeed, which...

While Russian hacks were not involved in vote tallying, the publishing of pilfered emails and promulgation of fake news altered the zeitgeist, poisoned the political environment and shifted public opinion, all of which redounded to Trumps benefit. Donald Trump is as much Russias appointment as our elected executive. The legacy of his political ascendance will be written in Cyrillic and affixed with an asterisk....

Instead, the FBI had to rely on forensic evidence provided by third-party cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike, which the DNC hired to mitigate the breach. The FBI repeatedly stressed to DNC officials the necessity of obtaining direct access to servers and data, only to be rebuffed, the agency said on Thursday in a statement....

Asked if they had ever been raped, 31...

A 10-paragraph screed against the billionaire ends with a link to Resist Trump: Occupy Inauguration Seattle! on Facebook. Nearly 9,000 people have seen the event and 3,000 have committed to attend. Thank you for making 2016 a year to remember. When we fight, we win! the Dec. 31 letter reads. We cannot, as Hillary Clinton suggested, give Trump...
