    Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries. Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become...

    Houston, TX — A Houston sheriff's deputy is under investigation after video shows him pulling a gun on a driver and threatening to kill him. The driver says traffic forced him to stop suddenly while the deputy was driving on a motorcycle behind him. He says that angered the deputy. “I mean, that's not something you do every day is threaten to kill somebody. If I threatened to kill somebody, I’d go to jail,” said George Dickerson, who had a gun pulled on him by a deputy. "If I held a gun to whomever and said I’m going to kill...

    There have been at least two separate instances where the victims reported seeing the same two men attempting to steal their dogs.Imagine you’re with your significant other walking your dog when two men in a car pull up behind you. Both of them, one armed with an AR-15, get out of the car and run toward you shouting, "Give us your dog!" That's really happening in Houston. Multiple victims have reported two separate incidents of similar crimes. When Joey Barnhill and his fiancee took their French bulldog for a walk last week near their east downtown home, they never would...

  • Texas State Historical Assn’s Chief Historian Says the Alamo Was an ‘Insignificant’ Battle and Represents ‘Whiteness.’ What Do Texas History Experts and the Facts Say?

    This past week, Texas State Historical Association chief historian Walter Buenger made two controversial assertions regarding the Alamo in a story published by USA Today. Although the battle has become a symbol of patriotism and freedom for many Texans and Americans, like the Confederate monuments erected after the Civil War, the myth of the Alamo has been used to “commemorate whiteness,” according to Walter L Buenger, Texas State Historical Association chair. The battle itself was relatively insignificant tactically speaking, but it gained recognition decades later in the 1890s as backlash to African Americans gaining more political power and Mexican immigration...

    The voter fraud in this year’s presidential election was widespread and extensive. Instead of asking where was the fraud? The real question is where was there NO fraud? Democrats used every trick in their book to steal votes and manufacture ballots. Here is the latest proof of voter fraud in Texas. Democrats manufactured votes — in the same city, in the same handwriting and at the same address. This is what Democrats do. And they will continue to do this until people are sent to jail. WHERE IS THE DOJ? WHERE IS THE FBI? WHAT HORRIBLE PEOPLE! This needs to...

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | September 26, 2020 | Paul Wedding, Staff Writer
    Harris County Commissioners approved a restructuring of how county toll road revenue can be used, which is concerning some people in northwest Harris County about how road projects will be funded. The measure approved creates a corporation to oversee duties performed by the Harris County Toll Road Authority. According to HCTRA, this measure would also change the grip the state has on where toll revenue can be spent by the county. A memo from Peter Key, HCTRA’s interim executive director, said HCTRA currently can only provide the issuance of revenue bonds for tolled infrastructure, and not non-toll transportation infrastructure challenges....

    HOUSTON — Harris County Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday night to change the engineer of record on the Sam Houston Tollway Ship Channel Bridge after a review found one portion that had not yet been built contained a potential design flaw. The Harris County Toll Road Authority hired an independent consultant, COWI North America, Inc., to review the design of the bridge. HCTRA deputy director John Tyler told KHOU 11 in January that COWI found the possible weakness in December 2019. The design comes from FIGG Bridge Engineers, Inc., the same company behind a Florida pedestrian bridge that collapsed in 2018,...

    The holiday season is in full swing and with it usually comes long travels, great food, and a lot of time with family. But this year, the holidays look quite different. As COVID-19 cases are on the rise, a few localities, like the city of Dallas and Harris County, are advising residents to cancel their holiday gatherings. Many are even considering new shutdowns. Let’s be clear: Forcing Texans to endure another round of COVID-19 lockdowns, especially during the holidays, will do more harm than good—for both body and mind. It didn’t take long after the initial wave of government shutdowns...

    HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The SH-288 toll lanes are open and you'll have to pay to use them starting today. Until now, the fees had been waived. Adjustable pricing is based on time of day and volume of traffic. In other words, if the lanes get too congested, toll prices will increase to control traffic. "I think you have to realize that the tolls will be managed based on time of day. If you're in the tolls during peak, it will cost a little more. If you're driving off peak, it will be less. And that's how they're designed," said...
