    Here’s a chilling news item reported by the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity:Last week, the Dallas Independent School District was boasting about its new pilot project, undertaken along with the company Davista. The pilot project, the school district says, uses AI to extensively monitor each student and then sound the alarm if a student deviates from his “baseline” behavior.There are so many disturbing and dystopian aspects to this information.First, using AI — artificial intelligence — to monitor student behavior is allowing an incredibly complex and advanced algorithm (which is really all AI is at this point) to record...

    A comedian was heckled over her jokes about Dylan Mulvaney not having top or bottom surgery after a year of 'girlhood' - before they stormed out screaming: '**** you transphobe.' Chrissie Mayr was performing at Hyena's Comedy Club in Dallas, Texas, in early May when she made a joke about the transgender influencer, 26, who has faced a huge backlash for her Days of Girlhood series and failing Bud Light campaign. Mayr's set continued to poke fun at the LGBT+ community, as she later described bisexuals as 'just fun at parties.' Throughout the video, Mayr showed the group of women...

    Dallas Stars Head Coach Peter DeBoer, whose team is currently competing in the NHL playoffs, reacted to the shooting at a Dallas area mall that left at least eight people dead over the weekend, saying, “Somebody has to have some answers for it.” “I don’t pretend to know the answer on how to fix it, but it’s too great a country [with] too many intelligent people not to do something about it,” DeBoer said in a pregame press conference on Sunday.

    Dallas historian Donald Payton says gentrification like that in Gilbert-Emory is common nationwide. It’s a story, he said, about the fight to endure and protect in the face of development in traditionally Black communities. A historically Black neighborhood in Dallas is watching itself vanish as gentrification continues to sweep in. Gloria Johnson’s residence is in West Dallas’ Gilbert-Emory neighborhood, one of the city’s most sought-after areas. According to The Dallas Morning News, the community received its name for Cecil and Helen Emory and Nathan and Margaret Gilbert, two Black families who ran grocery stores that provided food for the locals...

    The Dallas Cowboys added kicker Tristan Vizcaino to their practice squad Wednesday following Brett Maher’s horrible kicking performance Monday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tristan Vizcaino Maher shockingly missed four straight extra point attempts during the Cowboys’ playoff win against Tampa Bay before connecting on his fifth try. The Cowboys still intend to use Maher as their starting kicker for their playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, but have added Vizcaino to their practice squad as “insurance” just incase Maher continues to struggle making kicks throughout the week of practice, according to NFL reporter Todd Archer....

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were eliminated from the postseason Monday night after being crushed by the Dallas Cowboys, 31-14. The win sends the Cowboys to San Francisco to play against the 49ers in the divisional round of the playoffs. The Cowboys’ win was huge but the bigger story to come from this game seems to be centered around Tom Brady. The 45-year-old may have played in the final game of his legendary football career. When the seven-time Super Bowl champion jogged off the field, he tipped his cap to the crowd as to say “thank you.” He then stopped by...

    3 “For the 28 years that he served as chancellor of Germany, Bismarck preserved what he had built by a restrained and wise diplomacy, which was the single most important element in maintaining the peace of Europe.” – Henry Kissinger Some people complain I never have a good word to say about the United States. That’s not quite true. I am sure if I dig deep enough, I can find a piece or two from a daily column that spans more than a decade where I said something nice. But today, I will change tracks: George H.W. Bush, the 41st...

    A Texas woman was tasered after telling a cop in Walmart to 'respect' her. The unidentified woman, wearing a light-colored tank top and black pants, demanded a cop 'respect' her as she stood just inside a Walmart store in Dallas. It is unclear what started the disagreement between the two, but the woman is standing next to an overturned product stand that appeared to hold freshly baked cookies. 'You're going to respect me whenever I f**king [unintelligible] in this place,' the woman said in the video. 'Yeah, you will.' The cop responds: 'Get down on your knees.' Moments later, he...

    Thousands of classified documents relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy are set to be released next week, despite several government agencies desperately trying to keep them under wraps. More than 15,000 documents concerning the assassination remain locked away at the National Archives 59 years after his death - including dozens which experts believe would be the 'smoking gun' proving direct ties between Lee Harvey Oswald and the CIA. President Joe Biden ordered a review into the documents which will likely see a large batch of files still under lock and key released by December 15, after 1500...

    The world woke up Thursday morning to the news that WNBA star Brittney Griner had been released from Russian custody roughly 10 months after being arrested for bringing vape cartridges containing hashish oil through a Moscow airport. Griner was freed from a Russian penal colony in exchange for Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News. Notably, the prisoner swap left another U.S. citizen in Russian custody. Paul Whelan, a retired U.S. Marine veteran, was not involved in the exchange. Whelan was sentenced to 16 years in 2018 for espionage charges. Whelan’s absence in the deal...

    WNBA star Brittney Griner was released from a Russian prison Thursday as part of an exchange for notorious international arms dealer Viktor Bout, almost ten months after she was arrested on drug charges at a Moscow airport. “She’s safe, she’s on a plane, she’s on her way home,” President Biden said in remarks from the White House, where he was joined by Griner’s wife, Cherelle. The two spoke with the Phoenix Mercury center over the phone, according to senior White House officials. “She’s on her way home, after months of being unjustly detained in Russia, held under intolerable circumstances,” Biden...
