    A majority of Texans oppose building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and banning immigration from countries with terrorism ties, two of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's most high-profile immigration proposals, according to a new poll by the Texas Lyceum. Fifty-nine percent of Texans surveyed said they were against building a wall to stop illegal immigration, while 35 percent supported the plan.

    AUSTIN (KRLD-AM) – The latest spike in License to Carry gun applications is expected to take Texas past a significant milestone. CHL Licensed Instructor Michael Cargill owns Central Texas Gun Works. He says the 140 percent jump in applications from December 2015 through February is caused by a combination of fears of terrorism brought on by the shootings in San Bernardino and President Obama’s proposed gun control laws. “Then you have the new law that went into effect January the first (Open Carry)…all of that plays into it, and that’s why we’re seeing numbers. For the first time the State...

    Don't be surprised if NFL moving trucks show up in Oakland and San Diego next year. According to Texans owner Bob McNair, sending those two teams to Los Angeles is slowly starting to turn into the NFL's most likely relocation scenario. All 32 NFL owners are set to meet in Houston on Jan. 12-13 with one big goal: Figure out who's moving to L.A. To make the move to Los Angeles, a team needs to get approval from 24 of the league's 32 owners, and thanks to a last ditch effort by the city of St. Louis, McNair doesn't see...

    The Indianapolis Colts, already reeling with injury and performing below expectations, received even more terrible injury news on Tuesday: quarterback Andrew Luck suffered abdominal injury in the team's victory over Denver. Luck is expected to miss two to six weeks. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano announced the injury on Tuesday afternoon, saying Luck suffered a lacerated kidney and a partially torn abdominal muscle on a fourth-quarter scramble. This is in addition to the report from earlier this season that Luck had been playing with multiple fractured ribs. The Colts are in a bye week this week, then face the Falcons,...

    Three Texans, limited government constitutional conservative Republicans;Senator Ted Cruz, Representative LouieGohmertand Governor Greg Abbott are demonstrating how governing according to conservative principle is not only good policy, but good politics. As our friend Rick Manning observed in anexcellent article forNetRightDaily, in just one day last week, Ted Cruztook on Operation Choke Point through an Obama nominee for Justice who should be rejected, Chinese human rights abuses, sanctuary cities thatrelease violent illegal alien offenders, and led a hearing giving voice to U.S.victims of Palestinian and Iranian terrorism. Cruz followed this one-day blitz of policy entrepreneurship with a bill to designate the...

    In what undoubtedly will be seen as a controversial move, Texans owner Bob McNair donated $10,000 this week to a group advocating against LGBTQ rights. The donation comes at a time when the NFL has been publicly promoting acceptance of gay players and Michael Sam, the league's first openly gay player, was drafted last year.

    ACTION NEEDED TO CONTINUE FINANCING BOOTS ON THE GROUND ON TEXAS BORDER This week it is critical that Texans take actions to ensure that Texas House Representatives honor the desires for a secure border indicated by recent elections. Activists can only do so much to thwart the monied interests in this state and need back-up at this time. If you want to see our border secured from illegal crossings and all the consequent crime and violence that go with it, we must seek a continued budget in the upcoming supplemental bill. That means pressure by Texas Voters on the deciders...

    Very long interview with O'Brien that Texans fans will certainly want to read - especially w/ regard to the draft. Hard to read him, but I get the feeling that if they draft Johnny Football, it will be an upper management decision, not a Bill O'Brien decision. I obviously liked a few of his remarks about Penn State as well.

    Mess with Texas. You most likely associate the phrase “Don’t mess with Texas” with cheesy t-shirts and that unmistakable brand of Texas swagger.What you don’t know is that the slogan is the product of a 1980s anti-littering campaign and a federally registered trademark of the Texas Department of Transportation. The initiative is credited with cutting highway trash by 70% from 1986-1990.So maybe the best way to piss off a Texan is to mess with our state — cruise down a Hill Country two-lane during wildflower season and throw your pickle juice and mustard-stained Whataburger wrapper out the window.

"We had a great run here and we will never forget our back-to-back AFC South championships," Kubiak said in a statement. "Coming back home was a dream come true for all of us. This will always be our home. Thank you.” TheMMQB.com's Peter King first noted Friday that he expected the team to fire Kubiak, who exits after seven-plus seasons and...

    AUSTIN, TX, November 11, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) State Senator Wendy Davis' statement that she is pro-life, made just before she officially entered the governor's race this weekend, was designed to muddy the waters about her position on abortion and appeal to voters who are far more conservative on the issue than she is, according to some pro-life leaders in the state and around the country. Last Tuesday, the Forth Worth Democrat told an audience at the University of Texas in Brownsville, I am pro-life.

Hell get his chance as the winning bidder for a playoff ticket auctioned by a Texas Catholic priest and rabid Ravens fan.

Ferguson was reacting to host Christiane Amanpour's question about Perry's highly-animated New Hampshire address. Ferguson professed to like the "swaggering Texan" side of Perry he apparently saw in the speech. George Will had a caustic comeback. View the video here.
