    Houston’s police chief has resigned after emails obtained by a local news outlet appear to show that he knew about massive failures in the department well before he said he did. Within hours of issuing a statement about the findings, he resigned. In February, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner first announced that the Houston Police Department dropped 264,000 crime reports, including violent crimes and sexual assaults, which weren’t investigated because a “lack of personnel” code was assigned to them, The Center Square reported. In March, new Houston Mayor John Whitmire appointed an independent panel to review an internal HPD investigation...

    The stock market continued its record-setting rally Thursday with the Dow Jones Industrial Average notably flirting with 40,000 as technology shares made major gains. The Dow closed with a gain of nearly 270 points, or 0.7 percent, putting it within striking distance of the major milestone at 39,781 points. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq composite jumped 0.4 percent and 0.4 percent, respectively, on the day. The microchip sector led the charge, buoying the Dow despite a slump in Apple stock after the Justice Department sued the smartphone giant, alleging the company has hurt competition and consumers, developers and small businesses.

    Clark County violated Nevada and federal law by prematurely deleting communication records related to its voter registration lists, an audit published on Thursday claims. In a litigation notice sent to Clark County Registrar Lorena Portillo on Tuesday, Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) asserted that Nevada’s most populous county violated the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) and several state laws by deleting most of its election-related communications after six months. The NVRA requires states to “maintain for at least 2 years” and “make available for public inspection … all records concerning the implementation of programs and activities conducted for...

    An unseasonable warmup will continue to spread throughout most of the US this week, with high temperatures from Texas to the Midwest feeling more like May than the end of meteorological winter. Hundreds of temperature records – record highs and record-warm lows – are expected to fall through midweek, with Monday and Tuesday forecast to be the warmest days across the Plains and Midwest. On Monday, more than 250 million Americans will experience above-average temperatures. “This warmth is really beginning to build today across the middle tier of the country, and it continues to shift its way eastward by about...

    Washington, DC, recorded in 2023 the highest annual number of homicides the city has witnessed since 1997 despite stringent gun control. According to the Washington Post, 274 people were killed in the city in 2023. D.C. saw a murder rate of 40 per 100,000 residents, making it “deadlier than 55 of the country’s 60 most populous cities, behind only New Orleans, Cleveland, Baltimore and Memphis.” Washington, DC, New Orleans, Cleveland, Baltimore, and Memphis are all Democrat-run cities.

    Fox Business ^ | 11/25/23 | Timothy Nerozzi
    A bottle of Scotch whisky barreled in 1926 and bottled in 1986 sold at auction for over $2 million, shattering records for spirits of its kind. The bottle of Macallan 1926 sold for a staggering $2.1 million on Saturday, far surpassing organizers' expected selling price. Sotheby's, the historic auction house that oversaw the sale, originally expected the bottle to sell somewhere between $934,000 and $1.4 million. At that price point, the whiskey is worth approximately $131,000 per shot. Only 40 bottles of Macallan 1926 have ever been produced, and they are not for sale. Instead, the 40 luxury bottles of...

    Some convicted criminals in New York will now have their records sealed when applying for jobs and filling out housing applications, after Gov. Kathy Hochul signed the controversial new “Clean Slate Act” in a ceremony Thursday. The governor hailed the progressive legislation as a way to get more ex-cons in the work force — despite opposition from some police groups and law-and-order conservatives. “My number one job as the New York State Governor is to keep people safe, Hochul said. “And I believe that the best anti-crime tool we have is a job when people have steady work.” The legislation...

    President Joe Biden on Thursday laughed off a question on if he will hand over his bank records to Congress for an ongoing investigation into his son’s foreign business dealings and whether he was involved or profited from them. After Biden delivered remarks at the FEMA headquarters on federal response efforts to Hurricane Idalia and the Maui fires, a reporter asked him if he would give his bank records to Congress as House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has requested. Biden raised both of his hands, laughed, and said, “Let’s talk about why I’m here.” He ignored the question — which...

    WASHINGTON — President Biden tried to laugh off a question Thursday about whether he will comply with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s request for his bank records ahead of a possible impeachment inquiry into his role in first son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings. “Hee-hee-hee,” the 80-year-old president chuckled during a gaggle with reporters at FEMA headquarters in Washington after discussing the impact of Tropical Storm Idalia on Florida and nearby states. “Let’s talk about why I’m here,” Biden deflected. Biden had answered without complaint several prior questions that were unrelated to the storm, including about Overdose Awareness Day, Senate Minority...

    As the United States of America has descended into card-carrying Banana Republic status, there are any number of things we can point to as huge steps in the wrong direction. The J6 Committee was one giant leap for Banana Republickind.It was very satisfying to see Liz Cheney get the boot from politics for her turncoat role with the Dems’ J6 witch hunt, but she and everyone else on the committee should have been punished for wasting considerable taxpayer resources for a kangaroo court show trial. It was a national embarrassment that — in the minds of Democrats — lent some...

    The Biden administration 'froze' the Whitehouse.gov website for prior presidential records. It used to be that when I searched Whitehouse.gov for an EO or something, it went back in time to Obama's records etc. Now when you want to search for a Trump EO, or Obama EO etc. you have to go to a separate 'archives.gov' website.https://www.archives.gov/presidential-libraries/archived-websitesHere's part of the stated reason for creating the archives apart from Whitehouse.gov:In order for the public to easily access the websites, the National Archives has taken an additional step to "freeze" the White House websites and make them available online.

    The January 6 Committee defied a demand last year by incoming Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) that it preserve all of its records, evidence, and transcripts, and has destroyed much of what it collected over more than a year of investigation. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) made that revelation to Fox News Digital on Tuesday, also noting that the committee had not looked into possible security lapses at the Capitol, and that much of the material the committee did preserve was disorganized. Fox News reported: The House select committee that investigated the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021 failed...

    FIRST ON FOX: Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders quietly funneled $200,000 from his campaign's coffers to his wife's nonprofit institute, which appears to do very little work and pays six figures' worth of compensation to her son, Fox News Digital has found. The independent senator's committee cut two $100,000 checks to the Sanders Institute for reported charitable contributions in January and March, its Federal Election Commission records show. The expenditures are the largest from the Sanders campaign to any entity this election cycle. The senator's wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders, and stepson, David Driscoll, co-established the Sanders Institute in 2017 to act...
  • Question for debate….. Are ex President governed by the Espionage Act in handling of their Presidential Records ?

    For discussion. I have wondered if the Espionage Act covers ex Presidents in regard to their Presidential Records. In my opinion there may be a serious argument that they may not be governed by the Esionage Act based on the following… 1) prior to the implementation of the Presidential Records Act (PRA passed in 1978 implemented in 1981), ex Presidents routinely took possession of their Presidential records. (From National Archives website “Prior to the Presidential Records Act of 1978, which first applied to President Reagan, all of the official records of the White House were considered the personal property of...

    BENTON, Ark — How we do anything changes constantly— though it may sound vague, think about any electronic you use. You're upgrading every few months or years, using the latest and new greatest item. The same is true for how we listen to music. We now live in the age of streaming, but just a few decades ago, vinyl records dominated the charts. Since then, we've seen CDs, MP3 players, and streaming services take over, but there's always been a dedicated base of collectors, keeping vinyl records alive. Recently, that base has been growing by groups you may not expect....

    A group of 10 House Republicans helped Democrats sink a bill that would have forced Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to report his flight records on government-owned jets. The bill — introduced by Rep. Mary Miller, R-Ill., as an amendment to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization legislation — was defeated in a narrow 219-216 vote late Wednesday.
