    The Texas Tribune ^ | 2-22-2018 | Emma Platoff
    SAN ANTONIO — The courtroom was silent and thick with anxiety Thursday morning as the judge’s deputy read the verdicts: “Guilty,” “guilty,” “guilty” — 11 times over, and on all felony counts. State Sen. Carlos Uresti sat stone-faced, his gaze directed at the deputy, as he heard the ruling that throws into question his two-decade career in the Texas Legislature and opens up the possibility of years in federal prison and millions in fines.

    President Donald Trump’s growing feud with Steve Bannon is threatening the former White House strategist’s leadership of the conservative Breitbart News website and upending Mr. Bannon’s plans to wage “war” on party incumbents he deemed insufficiently loyal to the White House agenda. Mr. Trump said Mr. Bannon has “lost his mind” and that he has “nothing to do with me or my presidency,” a response to Mr. Bannon’s numerous incendiary comments—including insults about the president’s family—in a new book about the first year of the Trump administration. Mr. Bannon’s longtime benefactors, billionaires Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah Mercer, are...

    Mitt Romney ^ | 11/11/2017 | By Laz A. Mataz
    It read like something straight out of "The Onion". "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections."So spake Mitt Romney, would-be King of the Establishment Republicans.This one sentence shows a complete betrayal of all American mores and morals. In every walk of life -- law, elections, even reputations -- Americans have cherished the concept that one is innocent until proven guilty. This shows how dangerous Establishment Republicans are. They are every bit as dangerous as the most liberal Democrat.... and if given enough freedom to act, they would happily join Democrats in rounding up and killing Conservatives.Right now,...

    STATE COLLEGE — It’s been nearly six years since Penn State lost one of its most influential leaders, and easily its most visible figure. The debate continues to rage over the legacy of Joe Paterno’s reputation, from people who believe he was unjustly tarnished by the fallout from the Sandusky abuse scandal and that his statue should be put back in front of Beaver Stadium, to people who hold him fully accountable for the perpetrated abuse and failure of follow-through, and everyone in between. On Oct. 17, three writers from different backgrounds — but whose careers are all steeped in...

    Not only the Clintons are implicated in a uranium deal with the Russians that compromised national-security interests. Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark...

    A FRENCH court has faced a flurry of nationwide criticism for branding the "sexual relationship" between an 11-year-old girl and a 28-year-old man consensual. Prosecutors from the Val d'oise department in northern France, were told in court that the girl had agreed to go to his apartment after he promised to "teach her how to kiss". He was arrested after he lured the girl from a park near Paris to his home in April this year, the local reports. But once at his flat in Montmagny, the man had sexual relations with the young girl. The girl's family insisted the...

    Jurors at U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez’s corruption trial heard Wednesday how the senator failed to list a series of gifts he received from his co-defendant between 2006 and 2010, including six round-trip flights, a $875 livery service and a $4,934 stay at a Paris hotel, on his annual financial disclosure forms. In painstaking detail, prosecutors pointed out that the gifts from Salomon Melgen, a wealthy Florida ophthalmologist and longtime friend, did not qualify for reporting exemptions and that Menendez had acknowledged with his signature that the reports were “true, complete and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.”

    Jemma Beale, 25, lied to police about men she’d had consensual sex with or invented stories of gang rape. While she was given £11,000 compensation, one of her victims spent nearly three years in jail. A second man fled the country after Beale turned up at court to gloat at him. London’s Southwark Crown Court heard that she made up the assaults for attention and to make her lesbian lover jealous. Police spent more than £250,000 investigating the lies, while £109,000 in legal bills were incurred. Beale, of Bedfont, Hounslow, West London, accused four named men and was convicted of...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at his country's media for leading a campaign to oust him as he battles a series of corruption allegations. Netanyahu on Wednesday accused the media of being on "an obsessive, unprecedented hunt against me and my family to carry out a regime change" during a rally held by Israel's Likud party in support of the prime minister. Hundreds of supporters packed a Tel Aviv convention center holding signs and chanting "Bibi, King of Israel," using the prime minister's nickname. Netanyahu said that the "leftist" media is teaming up with the political opposition to...

    A woman has been found guilty of shooting her husband to death in a murder case witnessed by a parrot. Glenna Duram, 49, shot her husband Martin five times in front of their pet in 2015, before failing in a suicide attempt. The parrot, an African Grey named Bud, is alleged to have later repeated the words “Don’t shoot!” in the victim’s voice. Duram, of Sand Lake, Michigan, was found guilty of first-degree murder by a jury. She will be sentenced next month. The parrot was not involved in any court proceedings.
