    image from pagunblog.com The Washington Post published an article meant to convince the American people that their perceptions of gun ownership in the United States are wrong. They attempt to convince people that surveys showing lower numbers are goodthink. The article admits that gun ownership numbers are hotly disputed. They admit that ownership numbers are difficult to determine. Then they make the claim that ownership rates are falling and that  "In reality, only about 25 percent of Americans own a gun." From the Washington Post: As some 70,000 people attended the NRA’s annual convention last week, nearly three months after...

    Former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney lashed out at the decision to have a controversial evangelical leader give a blessing at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem Monday, calling him a "religious bigot." The Senate candidate from Utah criticized the inclusion of the Rev. Robert Jeffress — the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas who is also an an adviser to President Donald Trump. The president recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital last year. "Robert Jeffress says, 'You can't be saved by being a Jew,' and 'Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell,'" Romney wrote in...

The NRA spent $150,000 on 400 off-duty officers who patrolled the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center and its perimeter starting last Thursday through Sunday. Dallas' $575,000 bill includes security and traffic control for rallies, protests and President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence's visit to Dallas to speak at the convention, City Manager T.C. Broadnax said.

    Shannon Watts, founder of anti-Second Amendment organization Moms Demand Action, claimed Saturday that Dana Loesch attempted to “harass” and “intimidate” anti-gun protesters staging at a church in Dallas, where the annual National Rifle Association meeting is taking place. It took Loesch just one tweet to prove Watts was lying. What happened? It all started when Watts tweeted: Shannon Watts ✔ @shannonrwatts .@NRA lobbyist @DLoesch has shown up uninvited, with a camera crew, at a church where Texas @MomsDemand volunteers are meeting to discuss gun safety in order to harass and intimidate volunteers.

    President Donald Trump said Friday that polls showing him trailing Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election were a form of voter suppression. Trump spoke at the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas, Texas, and he again recounted his upset victory over Clinton as a way to rev up the crowd. "You weren't sure that Trump was going to win, but you all went out there. You all went out there and you voted," Trump said. "I remember they came out with a lot of phony polls. You know what that's called? Suppression," he added. "They convince you that you're wasting...

    On the day after this year’s November general election, you’ll know almost everything about how Texas went by knowing how the election went in Dallas County. It’s a blue county in the most populated red state in the U.S. Hillary Clinton won 60.75 percent of the vote to Donald Trump’s 34.6 percent in 2016. Democrats Wendy Davis and Leticia Van de Putte beat Greg Abbott and Dan Patrick in the races for governor and lieutenant governor in 2014, even as the two Republicans were coasting to easy statewide victories. Democrats want to keep the Dallas County trend rolling. Republicans, of...

    The Pew Charitable Trusts ^ | April 2, 2018 | Martha T. Moore
    The most popular place to put a city park is, increasingly, on a highway. Cities looking to boost their downtowns, or to improve downtrodden neighborhoods, are creating “highway cap parks” on decks constructed over freeways that cut through the urban center. Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Denver and Dallas have deck parks underway. Atlanta, Houston, Minneapolis and Santa Monica, California, are among the cities considering similar projects. In crowded cities, highway deck parks are a way to create new acreage and provide green space that can spur downtown development. Capping a highway to create a park also can reconnect urban neighborhoods sliced apart...

    One Texas lawmaker asked election officials to clean up their voter rolls from “illegal voting by noncitizens” in a county that has been plagued with a host of voter fraud allegations and investigations. State Senator Don Huffines (R-Dallas) voiced concerns over “illegal voting by noncitizens” this week in a letter to Dallas County elections officials. He called upon County Clerk, the Honorable John Warren, and Elections Administrator Toni Pippins-Poole to update the public on their progress in removing noncitizen voting registrants. “A fraudulent vote not only cancels out a legitimate one, but also casts doubt over the entire system, sowing...

  • Fallout over tolls divides local, state leaders

    The political tide has turned against toll roads in Texas, imperiling a Tomball interchange project and hamstringing frustrated local officials, while setting an ominous tone for projects to come. For years, state officials relied on tolls to tackle some of TexasÂ’ biggest traffic messes as a way to build without adding taxes. Since 2016, however, Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick have taken hard-line stances against the mixing of Texas Department of Transportation money and toll revenues.

    Claiming he was just trying to free Josh Holt, a devout young Mormon from Utah held hostage by Venezuela's Maduro regime on phony charges, left-wing Illinois Democratic senator Dick Durbin isn't exactly credible about his real mission in his secret visit to Caracas this past week. Rep. Pete Sessions, a Dallas-based Republican, isn't exactly believable, either, given that he called his secret trip with Durbin "a peace mission" to Caracas last week.

    Jihad scammers rightfully tossed out of court. You remember “Clockmed,” aka Ahmed Mohamed. Mohamed took apart an LCD digital clock and stuck it in a box. What he put together resembled a homemade bomb. Even though he admitted it looked “suspicious,” Ahmed brought it to school. When teachers and school administration officials became concerned for the safety of the students, they walked into Clockmed’s trap. Ahmed played the Islamofauxbia victim to the hilt. Lauded by President Obama, the Pope, 97 world leaders, the UN, hailed by NYC Mayor Bill deBlasio, who declared “Ahmed Day,” he became an enemedia icon and...

Those records include emails that contradict what Caraway said in an interview in January, when he denied knowing of any business deals between Slater Swartwood Sr. and the beleaguered Dallas County Schools agency, which voters have elected to shut down. In that interview, Caraway also said he knew of no business ties between Swartwood and...
