  • Game-by-game predictions for the 2017 schedule: Will the Cowboys' NFC East reign continue?

    06/26/2017 5:11:13 PM PDT · by Bender2 · 16 replies
    By Jon Machota , Staff Writer Contact Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota I predicted the outcome for every Cowboys game after the 2017 NFL regular-season schedule was released in April. At the time, I had Dallas going 10-6, the same record I predicted in 2016. One difference is that I had the Cowboys winning the division last year. At first glance, I had them finishing second this year to the New York Giants, but earning a wild card spot. Having been able to see what they did in the draft and watch offseason practices, I've gone back through my projections....
  • What Is DHS Hiding from the Public About the Dallas Shooter?

    Of all people, it was Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson who first announced and confirmed to the public that there was only one shooter in Dallas (after news reports varied from two shooters to four and repeatedly described triangulated gunfire). Then there’s the “misreporting” (above) on exactly how the suspected shooter died… But here’s a question: why was DHS so involved in the first place? Via Daily Caller: Officials at the Cause of Action Institute, a nonprofit government oversight group, are seeking documents they believe may show the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is withholding vital information about the Dallas...

    Shakespeare Dallas was getting ready for opening night of the Shakespeare comedy, 'The Merry Wives of Windsor' this week. So when emails started arriving Tuesday – some of them threatening in nature – there was surprise. "It was shocking," said Shakespeare Dallas Executive and Artistic Director, Raphael Parry. "I think it was a case of mistaken identity." Earlier this week, Shakespeare in the Park in New York stirred up controversy with its contemporary take on Julius Caesar. It featured a President Trump look-a-like who was stabbed to death. Shakespeare Dallas is not affiliated in any way, and is not even...

    HOUSTON - The teachers at Spring Forest Middle School asked KHOU 11's Verify team whether Beltway 8 has been paid off and if the tolls will ever go away in the foreseeable future. "Why do we still pay for toll roads?" wondered 7th grade teacher Rebecca Mustachio. "To be honest, I thought we would be done paying for toll roads." We are not even close to paying the bill for those roads, according to Roxana Sibrian of the Harris County Toll Road Authority. In a statement emailed to KHOU, the authority says it will be paying off construction debt until...

    D Magazine ^ | June 2017 | DARWIN PAYNE
    By the 1920s the Dallas Morning News had become a formidable and progressive force in Dallas and in Texas, far overshadowing its parent, the Galveston Daily News, which had founded the paper in 1885 to serve the growing North Texas area. Adolph S. Ochs, the Tennessean who rescued the New York Times from virtual bankruptcy in 1896 and converted it into the nation’s most distinguished newspaper, declared in 1924 that he had received his “ideas and ideals” from the Galveston Daily News and the Dallas Morning News. Two years later, a leading national magazine recorded that the News “was, and...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
