[THEHILL] The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday raised the prospect that the London-based professor who told former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos that Russia had "dirt" on Perennial Presidential Campaigner Hillary Crooked Hillary Clinton ... former first lady, former secretary of state, former presidential candidate, Conqueror of Benghazi, Heroine of Tuzla, formerly described by her supporters as the smartest woman in the world, usually described by the rest of us as The Thing That Wouldn't Go Away... may be dead.
DNC lawyers wrote in court filings Friday that Joseph Mifsud, who spoke to Papadopoulos during the 2016 presidential election, "is missing and may be deceased," Bloomberg News reported. The lawyers did not elaborate.
The DNC stood by its claim in a statement to The Hill on Friday. The committee indicated that an investigator had been used to find Mifsud, who has been missing for months, and was told the Maltese professor may be dead.
"The DNC's counsel has attempted to serve Mifsud for months and has been unable to locate or contact him. In addition, public reports have said he has disappeared and hasn't been seen for months," DNC spokeswoman Adrienne Watson said.
To the People of Texas & All Americans in the World:
Fellow citizens & compatriots—I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna—I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man. The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken—I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls. I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch—The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country—Victory or Death.

[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] The Texas State Board of Education's advisory panel suggested 'heroic' be taken out of descriptions of the Alamo for seventh grade classes Little men try to tear big men down. Midgets try to tear giants down.
The curriculum currently states that the 'siege of the Alamo and all of the heroic defenders who gave their lives there' The text they're bitching about is to the right. Form your own opinion about whether it's heroic.
'Heroic' is seen as a 'value-charged word' for the complicated history of the Revolution and its connections to slavery and the autocratic Mexican regime If Santa Ana wasn't an autocrat, what was he? And for extra credit, have the school board members count the number of references to slavery in the Travis Letter.
'Stop political correctness in our schools,' Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, said on Thursday If you want to be "Fair and Balanced," you might want to chant "Viva Juan Seguin! Viva Juana Navarro! Viva Salvador Flores!" The defenders weren't all Anglos. Those fighting for the Republic of Texas weren't all Anglos.
George P. Bush, state land commissioner, also voiced disdain for a plan to allow students to not have to write a separate assignment about 'the Travis Letter' "I shall never surrender or retreat." It kinda went into the marrow of the state. Now the insects are trying to get rid of it.

Actually the recommendation came from one of several panels or groups soĺïcited for input to the formal state 15 member committee that casts fïnal votes on adopting recommendations. The Chair of the formal commitee also came out against the input. The leader of the panel that made the recomendation is associated with a university (University of Texas) infested with your typical knuckle dragging liberals who claim to have evolved from monkeys and want to convince us that we did, too.
Well, there were some Anglo immigrants to Texas who really did not care for the fact that Mexico had banned slavery. Others most likely were not fond of the Mexican religous policy. In the end IMO Mexico would of lost Texas and most or much of the Southwest simply due to immigration. I don't know what Mexico's immigration policy was at the time but I would consider the average European immigrant would consider the US a much more likely destination
If you want proof that our system is broken, you need only look at today's hearing on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, where children who aren't old enough to vote testified against the nominee. The great sages of the Democratic Party are kids who know little-to-nothing about the role of the Supreme Court, as their testimonies demonstrated today.
First up was Parkland shooting survivor Aalayah Eastmond. "I am very concerned since learning Brett Kavanaugh’s views on guns, and how he would strike down any assault weapons ban," she explained ‐ an opinion no doubt informed by her close reading of his opinions on the matter as well as her knowledge of precedents on the Second Amendment. (Or were they informed by her activist handlers on the left.) She also took the time to call out "Second Amendment extremist groups" and "other domestic terrorists."
"Like many of my brothers and sisters of color, I am not comforted by deputies with handguns, let alone assault rifles," she opined, which leads one to wonder whether Miss Eastmond and her media coaches have really thought through what would happen in, say, Chicago, if we disarmed the police.
Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Prosecutors on Friday said they misunderstood text messages they used as the basis of a claim that alleged Russian spy Maria Butina offered to trade sex for political access.
Butina, a 29-year-old U.S.-based Russian woman, was charged in July for conspiring to influence American politics.
The accusation against Butina, that she offered "sex in exchange for a position within a special interest organization," has been disputed by her lawyer.
...The text message in question is one in which Butina joked she owed a friend sex for having her car insurance renewed. Land of the Free, home of the Brave
...Prosecutors said the text exchange they had misunderstood was not the only piece of evidence they have against Butina, which includes extensive communications she had with a Kremlin-linked banker and meetings she had with National Rifle Association officials as part of a plan to influence the U.S. government. We misunderstand everything
Butina, in jail awaiting trial, has pleaded not guilty and denies any wrongdoing. Both sides are expected back in court Monday. Captain Dreyfuss couldn't be reached for comment
