    FULL TITLE.......Could Trump open the Kennedy files? President must decide within weeks on releasing the last secret CIA and FBI assassination files.................He has floated some conspiracy theories for years, but now President Donald Trump will get to play a crucial role in the long-running saga over the government's Kennedy assassination records. The 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, signed by President George H.W. Bush, set a 25-year timetable for declassification of assassination records dealing with President Kennedy. The law set up a single collection of records at the National Archives, and set up a process for declassification. The law required...

    Police at the University of Texas at Dallas say they're searching for the person who dumped several copies of the Quran in campus toilets. They call the incident "shocking" and "unusual." A student recently discovered the books inside a bathroom at the university's Student Union building. After snapping some pictures to document the apparent anti-Muslim act, he immediately reported it to campus security, which got police involved.
  • Culprit broadcast signal that triggered Dallas' emergency sirens Friday night

    04/11/2017 8:05:39 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 23 replies
    Dallas' emergency warning sirens, like many across the country, are radio-controlled and activated via encoded transmitters that act like pagers, sending tones to receivers attached to each siren. In Dallas' case, security experts say, it appears that someone took control of the frequency and transmitted the tones that turned on all 156 sirens across the city. Broadnax said he was "leery about [sharing] how these systems work," citing security concerns. He would confirm only that "it's a tonal-type system." In Moore, Okla. — a town in Tornado Alley that relies on sirens for weather emergencies — a base radio station...
  • MEGA BUST: Pro-Illegal Alien ‘Mega March 2017’ in Dallas a Dud

    A pro-illegal alien march and rally held in Dallas on Sunday called Mega March 2017 drew several thousand attendees, way short of the 100,000 planned for by organizers. The turnout pales in comparison to the 2006 Mega March in Dallas that drew an estimated 500,000 and stretched many packed city blocks. In contrast the 2017 Mega March only thinly fills half the lanes of about six blocks as seen from aerial video by KXAS-TV. Aerial photos posted by the Dallas Police show the less than impressive turnout as compared to 2006.
  • Dallas sirens took over Twitter on Friday night

    Just before midnight Friday, emergency sirens began wailing throughout Dallas after an apparent system malfunction. Dallas spokeswoman Sana Syed said emergency crews were working to fix the problem, but that the fix may take a while "because it's a manual shutoff." There are quite a few tornado sirens in town, so the incident was anything but isolated.

    Harvey was found stuck in a 25-foot hole in a Dallas construction siteA cat missing from Denver since last June turned up at a construction site in Dallas this week. It's been a long journey for Harvey the cat. A total of 794 miles, to be exact. Construction workers found Harvey stuck in a 25-foot hole at their site in Highland Park, according to a post from the city of Dallas. It took Dallas Animal Services about six hours to free the cat. He was caked in mud, but otherwise in good shape. After being cleaned up, Animal Services found...

    DALLAS - Some tweets can, apparently, be as dangerous as a gun. That's the logic behind the Dallas County indictment of John Rivello. He's facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police say Rivello tweeted animated strobe images to a Newsweek Senior Writer last December with the message "you deserve a seizure for your post." The journalist is epileptic, and the strobe lights did, in fact, trigger a seizure. Federal authorities already charged Rivello with federal cyber stalking for the tweet, but the state of Texas added the aggravated assault charge. That charge also carries a hate...

    A witness told police that Darren Clark, 50, had gotten into an argument with his roommate of three years, Charles Jones, because Jones didn't flush the toilet after using it. Clark pulled out a knife and stabbed Jones, then fled, the witness said... Jones, who had been stabbed twice in the chest and once in his right arm, was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center. Clark was charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — family violence. He has been released from the Dallas County Jail after posting $50,000 bail.

    Since the 2016 presidential election, liberal educators across the fruited plain have gone slap crazy. I wrote about these phenomena in my new book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again.” Some teachers have even turned their classrooms into breeding grounds for anti-Trump propaganda – going so far as to portray the commander-in-chief as a modern-day Adolf Hitler. And I lost count of the number of educators who refused to broadcast the inauguration ceremony over fears that some fragile snowflake might take offense. But what happened in Dallas is yet another example of how our public schools have been...

    Police say surveillance video shows the two males approach Whitener as he walked toward the store. The suspects then walked away when the theater director walked into the entrance. Once inside, Whitener immediately went to a Target employee and told them about the males, who were then asked by an off-duty officer and a security guard to leave the property. However, authorities say Whitener was approached by the two males after he left the store at about 11:05 p.m. "They made a threatening statement to [Whitener] and then beat him with the [wooden] stick and fled on foot towards the...

    As I drove around the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex during Christmas season, 2016, I stopped at four area Walmart stores.  The first one was a couple of days before Christmas.  I did not have a car until the 24th, so I only looked in the Walmart at Frankford and Marsh Ln before Christmas.  I have written about .22 at that store for a year and a half.  It has had .22 LR in stock pretty reliably during that period, so I was not surprised to see a a couple thousand Winchester Super X, a couple of thousand CCI Stingers, a...

    Dear Editor, As states and municipalities around the nation struggle to find ways to afford much-needed improvements to aging and congested roadways, the Commonwealth of Virginia has established itself as an innovative leader when it comes to carefully prioritizing the state’s transportation investments and wisely leveraging private sector resources to ensure the best deal for state taxpayers. The I-66 Outside the Beltway project exemplifies this leadership, and Cintra, together with its partner Meridiam, is proud to be part of the team selected by the Commonwealth to finance, design, build, operate and maintain this more than $3 billion transformative project at...

    For months, if not years, we've warned that conflicted politicians and union bosses pursue a perverse set of goals in their management of pension funds, most of which have nothing to do with the application of sound financial principles. Here's how we summarized the situation back in the summer (see "An Unsolvable Math Problem: Public Pensions Are Underfunded By As Much As $8 Trillion"): Defined Benefit Pension Plans are, in many cases, a ponzi scheme.  Current assets are used to pay current claims in full in spite of insufficient funding to pay future liabilities... classic Ponzi.  But unlike wall...

    The cost of toll roads, the toll of urban congestion, ride-hailing battles and a high-speed train war garnered plenty of attention in Texas this year. And after the Legislature spent two sessions focusing on highway funding, lawmakers now appear poised to tackle other transportation matters next year. Here's a look at the year's biggest transportation stories and how they may continue to unfold in the coming months:1. Uber and Lyft roll out of Austin after losing city electionNational ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft stopped operating in Austin after voters there rejected an ordinance that would have repealed certain regulations, including...

    The Dallas Morning News has endorsed a Republican in every presidential election, but decided to buck the trend and endorse two-time presidential loser Hillary Clinton. That appears to have hit the publication’s bottom line, as scores of customers have decided to scrap their subscriptions. T. Becket Adams at The Washington Examiner had more: "[S]ome people have cancelled their subscriptions, so we lost some customers at a time when it's tough to lose customers," editor Mike Wilson told the Washington Examiner Tuesday evening. Earlier, in an interview with Poynter, Wilson said the Dallas Morning News experienced some unpleasant pushback after it announced...

    City Journal ^ | 12/14/2016 | Steve Malanga
    When Detroit filed for bankruptcy in 2013, the city’s emergency-financial team said that high levels of retirement debt could prevent them from rescuing the Motor City’s finances. Detroit had been in economic decline for decades, and the pension problem—including billions of dollars in bonuses handed out while the city was hurtling toward insolvency—was just one part of the depressing financial picture. Dallas, by contrast, has been one of the fastest-growing American cities in recent years. Becoming a magnet for investment and opportunity, however, hasn’t protected the Texas city from experiencing its own Detroit-style financial crisis. Dallas’s retirement system for cops...

    It looks like there will be no love lost between Donald Trump and the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement. In a recent interview with NPR, co-founder Patrisse Cullors said there would be absolutely no negotiating with Donald Trump or anyone in his administration. “We’re not going to be taking meetings with Donald Trump,” Patrisse Cullors said. “We’re not going to be sitting with his Attorney General. What we will be doing is protesting. What we will be doing is calling for an end to white nationalism and fascism.” The Black Lives Matter movement has grown into a nation-wide...
