    At the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) in Dallas, Texas, I noticed a significant amount of the open carry of sidearms. This would not have been legal as late as December of 2015. The open carry of a Bowie knife would have been illegal up until then end of August this year!In addition to the licensed open carry of handguns, edged weapons with blades of more than 5.5 inches can now be legally carried in most places. One participant carried an iconic Bowie knife at the GRPC. He graciously allowed me to take a picture. Knife Rights deserves much...

Kennedy's assassination in 1963."Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened," Trump tweeted.

    Jerry Jones is now center stage, but not for a reason he'd like to be. The Hall of Famer owner took ownership of nearly every major headline in the 24-hour news feed when he took a powerful stance regarding how the Dallas Cowboys will handle the National Anthem. Through the team's Week 5 game against the Green Bay Packers, no Cowboys' player had offered any type of demonstration during the signing of the Anthem -- remaining one of the few teams with that designation. Jones' comments were unexpected, considering the aforementioned combined with the discussions that took place after comments...
  • Cowboys TV ratings in Dallas-Fort Worth are slipping

    Any television show or any sporting event would take a rating of 30.0 in the Dallas-Fort Worth market and laugh all the way to the bank. It's a terrific number. It means that an average of 30 percent of all homes with televisions in the area were tuned in at any moment. That translates to approximately 794,550 homes. Relatively speaking, however, those are low numbers for a Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys matchup. But that's what Sunday's down-to-the-wire Packers 35, Cowboys 31 at AT&T Stadium scored locally for Fox on KDFW (Channel 4).

  • Texas' Toll Roads: A Big Step Towards Open Markets For Transportation

    No city in America runs on anything resembling a free-market model. But Texas' major cities are probably the closest thing, with vast improvements to their economies and living standards to show for it. Their looser land-use laws mean that housing supply grows quickly, stabilizing prices. Their lighter tax and regulatory structure helps businesses locate there and grow. And—shenanigans from the governor's office notwithstanding—their openness to immigrants means they have cheap and robust labor forces.But one market-oriented aspect little discussed is Texas' approach to transportation. The state has 25 toll roads, more than any other state. They are particularly common in Houston and Dallas,...

    RUSH: Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, said that any player who disrespects the flag will not play for the Dallas Cowboys. Snerdley, you’re a Cowboys fan. You agree with that? You do? Steve Ross, who owns the Miami Dolphins, said if you come out, you are standing. Nobody is kneeling. Three players stayed in the locker room during the National Football League. Now, why would Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, say that any player who disrespects the flag will not play for the Cowboys? I have a theory. I think Jerry Jones wants to...

    ESPN pundit Jemele Hill wants fans to boycott the sponsors of the Dallas Cowboys following remarks from owner Jerry Jones. Jones said Sunday that he will bench players who refuse to stand for the national anthem, and apparently that didn’t sit too well with Hill. “Change happens when advertisers are impacted. If you feel strongly about JJ’s statement, boycott his advertisers,” she tweeted in part late Sunday night after his comments. Not sure how happy ESPN management will be with an employee telling NFL fans to boycott NFL related sponsors, given the fact that ESPN needs the NFL to stay...

    Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones has had it with anthem protests. Just how tired of it is he? Tired enough that Jones has now publicly said that if his team doesn’t respect the flag, they’re not going to play. Jones was asked by Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, about two Cowboys players who raised their fists at the end of the anthem. Jones said he did not see the raised fists. But then, Jones made a definitive statement about how he wants to see his team to handle the anthem from now on. According to Pro Football Talk, Jones...

    ARLINGTON Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said any players in his organization who disrespect the flag during the national anthem will not play in games. Jones is the first owner in the NFL to go on record about disciplining players who disrespect the flag during the national anthem. He didn’t specify kneeling or raising fists in the arm or other gestures made by players around the league. Jones made his strongest statements regarding the national anthem protests throughout the NFL after Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. “If there is anything disrespecting the flag, then we will not play....

    Amazon has decided that its growth over the next 10 to 15 years requires a second headquarters, or HQ2. It's asking cities with populations of more than 1 million to submit proposals by Oct. 19. That has set off a frenzy from cities and states across the U.S. and Canada for its up to 50,000 new jobs and $5 billion investment over the next decade. 1. What does Amazon want? A stable and business-friendly environment. Urban or suburban locations with the potential to attract and retain strong technical talent. Communities that think big and creatively when considering locations and real...

    It is hard to avoid the conclusion that the effort to remove the Confederate monuments in Dallas began--behind closed doors in City Hall--long before it surfaced in the Dallas media, and in public meetings of the Dallas City Council. The question “Will Dallas join the 2017 Great Purge of American History?” was posed in the first of a six-part series recently posted on the Canada Free Press. The answer is—Yes, and it has. In his book Rules for Radicals, legendary Chicago-based, community-organizer Saul David Alinksy (1909-1972) wrote the playbook for America’s alt-left assault on Confederate Monuments. Alinsky Rule 13 is...

    FULL TITLE: Straight shooters: Entire Cowboys team - including owner Jerry Jones - takes a knee PRIOR to the National Anthem to boos before standing and linking their arms during Star Spangled Banner Before playing the Arizona Cardinals, the Dallas Cowboys came onto the field with locked arms and knelt for a few seconds before singing the national anthem. The team's owner, Jerry Jones, joined the team in their seeming display of solidarity with other team members who have knelt or sat during the national anthem. Coach Jason Garrett also joined. Jones, 74, in the past has criticized NFL players...

    It was only a matter of time. The "Dallas Independent School District included schools named after three of America’s Founding Fathers on a list of schools that the district is exploring renaming," Peter Hasson reported in The Daily Caller yesterday, on Constitution Day. "The DISD administration has already recommended renaming four schools named after Confederate generals, including Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson."

    Crews arranged by Dallas officials removed a statue of Robert E. Lee from a pedestal Thursday and carted it away from a park named for the Confederate general. In an unannounced move, a large crane was brought through the city by a police escort to Lee Park, where it lifted the large statue from its pedestal late Thursday afternoon. City officials said in a statement that an art conservator monitored the proper handling of the statue, and police tactical officers with automatic rifles provided security. The statue was lowered onto a flatbed trailer for transport to an abandoned naval air...

    Will Dallas join the 2017 Great Purge of American History? (Part 3 of 6) Throughout his political career, Dallas believed in popular sovereignty regarding states’ rights. To him that meant, until the Constitution was amended, each state had the right to decide the slavery issue for itself. The “Life of George Mifflin Dallas, Vice President of the United States” was originally prepared in September 1844, by the Democrat Committee of Publication, and then revised in November 1847. Quotes from Dallas within the publication document his understanding of popular sovereignty applied to the issue of slavery in new territories. A debate,...
