One of the sons of the infamous drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was arrested — but subsequently released — by security forces after his detainment sparked intense fighting in northern Mexico Thursday night.
More than 30 militarized police and National Guard members were patrolling the northern city of Culiacan – the capital of Mexico’s Sinaloa state – when they were fired upon from a house, officials said. Continue reading

Connor Bruce Croll was just a couple months into his freshman year at the University of Alabama, a floppy-haired 19-year-old from small-town Virginia who joined a fraternity to ease his transition.
Then at 9:31 p.m. Tuscaloosa time on Saturday, according to authorities, he decided to play what appears to be a joke. Croll told police that, “his friend was on the verge of losing a big bet,” in the Florida-LSU game that was being played at that time. Continue reading

Before his death in 1999, an OSS special agent openly talked about his role in incapacitating Gen. George S. Patton (1885-1945) via a staged automobile fender bender on Dec. 9, 1945. Using the pandemonium of the traffic collision as a distraction, agent Douglas DeWitt Bazata sniped Patton in the neck with a specially made gun firing a non-piercing bolt. Patton survived the incident with a dislocation of a vertebrae and never knew what hit him. Continue reading

LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) – A revealing recording has caused some of the Texas House Speaker’s colleagues to call for him to step aside, including Republican Rep. Trent Ashby of Lufkin.
According to the Texas Tribune, a conversation that was recorded in Austin in June revealed that Republican House Speaker Dennis Bonnen urged hardline conservative activist Michael Quinn Sullivan to target members of their own party in the 2020 primaries. Bonnen was heard speaking disparagingly about a number of Democrats, calling one house member “vile” and suggesting that another’s wife “was gonna be really pissed when she learns he’s gay.” Continue reading

The G7 at Doral might be the only thing President Trump can look forward to right now.
After announcing that the Group of Seven summit would be held at Trump’s Miami resort next year, acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney took Trump’s impeachment inquiry to a place he certainly didn’t want it to go. Mulvaney essentially admitted to a quid pro quo agreement with Ukraine over security funding, and House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) says it has made things “much, much worse” for Trump and company.

Legal Insurrection – by Mike LaChance
Over the last several years, we have seen the migration of progressive culture from the halls of college campuses to the mainstream. The creation and recognition of ‘International Pronouns Day’ is a perfect example.
If you haven’t heard of International Pronouns Day, you’re not alone. It’s new, having been first recognized just last year. It occurred again yesterday and is already being treated by many as completely mainstream. Continue reading
The combination of guns and alcohol is especially dangerous, and far too little has been done to address it. Federal law doesn’t restrict access to guns by people with a history of alcohol abuse, and fewer than half of U.S. states impose prohibitions of this kind. The risks to public safety are increasingly clear, and the issue demands more careful attention than lawmakers have allowed up to now. Continue reading

Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which handles the legal immigration process, said the number comes from a study done by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. That study put the number at 22.1 million. Continue reading
