    BELLEVUE, Neb. (WOWT) -- A local man was kicked out of a Bellevue Golden Corral because of the shirt on his back. Another customer reported him to the manager, claiming the shirt was too controversial for children to see. The situation has the man in-question considering his first amendment rights. “"I paid for the f***-ing food,” Riek Mock can be heard saying in the video. Mock told his son to start recording video on his phone Sunday when the restaurant’s manager asked him to leave. "He said a customer is complaining he don't like your T-shirt on," said Mock. "I...

    A Nebraska Democratic Party official is now in hot water. An audio recording was posted on YouTube Thursday with Phil Montag, a technology chairman, voicing how glad he was Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise got shot last week at a baseball practice. Nebraska Democratic Party chairwoman Jane Kleeb confirmed to FOX 42 News Thursday it was really his voice. "His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to (expletive) kick people off (expletive) health care. I'm glad he got shot," said Montag in the audio recording. Montag is now looking for a new job. Kleeb let him go after the...

    Costco has broken ground on a $300 million chicken processing plant near Fremont, expected to generate more than a billion dollars in economic activity in Nebraska. Jonathan Luz of Costco said during groundbreaking ceremonies today that a lot of work has been put into the planning stages for the plant, but more work remains. “As much as it’s an achievement to be here today marking this auspicious occasion, the work really has just begun,” according to Luz. “It’s now time to put the vision that we all share into action and results.” The poultry processing plant, hatchery, and feed mill...

    Omaha, NE—Kara Eastman, the first Omaha Democrat looking to take on freshman Republican Congressman Don Bacon next year, says it is “a little soon” to impeach President Donald Trump. in a wide ranging interview with News Channel Nebraska, Eastman—a member of the Metropolitan Community College board who is little known to most voters—weighed in on Trump, others who might get in the Democratic Primary including former Congressman Brad Ashford, and much more: NCN: The fact that you are getting in shows you feel you are more equipped for Congress than others that might run.

    <p>An Omaha, Nebraska, man allegedly harassed his neighbors more than 70 times over the course of three and a half years with a very unique — and disturbing — method.</p> <p>Douglas Goldsberry, 45, hired strippers on many occasions, he told police, per KETV. But he didn’t tell them to come to his home. Instead, he sent them to his neighbors’ porch, where they would bare their breasts and sometimes even fully undress, prosecutors claim, according to the Omaha World-Herald. All the while, he would watch from his own home, allegedly.</p>

    A Pottawattamie County sheriff's deputy was fatally injured Monday when he was shot at the jail by an escaping inmate. At a somber 4:30 p.m. press conference, Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker identified the deputy as Mark Burbridge, 43, a 12-year veteran. Danker said the loss of Burbridge was something that law enforcement officers hope they never have to experience. "We lost one officer today," Danker said. "Two of our excellent officers were shot." Another deputy, Pat Morgan, 59, a 10-year department veteran, also was injured in the shooting, which occurred about 10:55 a.m. Morgan was shot in the lower...

    'There's a huge disconnect here'! Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez says all Democrats should line up in favor of abortion, and he calls the position “not negotiable,” a clarification for which pro-life groups are exceedingly grateful. The issue arose after Perez publicly backed the pro-life Democratic Party nominee in the race for mayor of Omaha, Nebraska. After criticism from pro-choice forces, Perez released a statement insisting he and the party were not straying from their stance on abortion. “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,”...

    For years Ashleigh Buch hid the fact that she was transgender. The Offutt airman reported to work each day as a man, telling colleagues little about her life. Off the base, in her Omaha apartment, above, she lived as a woman, donning wigs over the hair she kept trimmed short. But as part of a wave of social change to hit the military, the Air Force instructor’s days of appearing one way at work and another at home are over....

    A decision was made on whether four beer stores in Whiteclay will have their liquor licenses renewed. The Nebraska Liquor Control Commission voted to deny the license renewals for the four beer stores in the town of eight people. The three-member panel cited inadequate law enforcement in the unincorporated village of eight residents. Most of that beer, amounting to almost 4 million cans annually, is sold to residents of the Pine Ridge Reservation, located a mile away across the South Dakota border where alcohol is banned. The decision comes after more than 10 hours of testimony during the hearing two...

    Governor Pete Rickets of Nebraska Nebraska's preemption bill has moved forward in a significant way.  Bill LB68 was voted on by the Government Military, and Veterans Affairs committed and passed 33 - 11.  The Nebraska legislature is unicameral, with only 49 members. The committee vote was a vote of the whole legislature, and makes it very likely the legislation will pass.  The Governor, Pete Rickets, claims to strongly support the Second Amendment. His signature seems probable. From theindependent.com: The Legislature voted 32-12 to advance a bill that would require state law to override municipal gun regulations in Nebraska. Supporters...

    Col. (retired)  Tom Brewer, Nebraska State Senator Nebraska has a Constitutional Carry bill that has been introduced in 2017. It is Legislative Bill 502(pdf). The bill was introduced by Senator Brewer, and was heard in committee on March 23rd. No action was taken at that time.  From omaha.com: The committee took no action Thursday on Legislative Bill 502. Because the bill does not have a priority designation, it likely would not be scheduled for debate this year even if the committee decides to advance it to the floor. State Sen. Tom Brewer of Gordon introduced the bill, saying he...

    Environmental activists vowed over the weekend to fight the Keystone XL oil pipeline to the bitter end, insisting the Trump administration’s approval of the long-delayed project will not be the final word. Powerful green groups are launching a two-pronged strategy to block the pipeline in the streets and in the courts. First, they intend to use a state review process in Nebraska — where Keystone still does not have a legal route, despite federal approval of the project — to delay any movement forward. Nebraska state officials charged with approving the pipeline’s path say a decision shouldn’t be expected until...

    The Nebraska Democratic Party has no problem with refugees being settled in their state. In fact, they’re so excited about refugees coming to the Cornhusker State that they’re giving each refugee their own “welcoming basket.” According to the Conservative Review, the welcome baskets include essential items like diapers, kitchen utensils, toilet paper, dishes, towels, blankets, small appliances — oh, and a voter registration form. In a video posted earlier this month, Nebraska Democratic Party chairwoman Jane Kleeb explained that her party decided to put the baskets together after President Donald Trump issued his “racist travel ban” in late January.

    It's OFFICIAL. The Democratic Party chair in Nebraska has just bragged about including a Voter Registration Form in each welcome basket for newly-arrived immigrants. This is a blatant attempt to influence individuals to commit a felony, ironically setting up the very immigrants they are trying to help with a deportation-level event. This is the first time that a Democratic Party official has actually endorsed illegal voter fraud activity. The video is at the link on Conservative Review. There needs to be a major investigation into this practice.

    A barber in South Omaha, Nebraska is grateful he was carrying his gun after a man with a shotgun attempted to rob him.

The armed robber came in while Galvan and his brother were taking care of patrons, tossed a backpack on the floor and demanded that they all empty their pockets. "It was so fast, so, so fast," Said Galvan's brother, David.  "When he cocked the...

Dr. Joe Skradski said he and others have talked with the 21 young men who were at the fraternity Saturday when the Women’s March on Lincoln went past. All have denied saying or hearing other Phi Gamma Delta members say “Your p-----s are blue” or “No means yes” as marchers went by, Skradski said. Some marchers, however, say they heard those comments coming from the fraternity, which is commonly called Fiji. The University of...
