    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” McAllen, TX Mayor Javier Villalobos (R) stated that the city had to declare a disaster over the migrant situation in the city because the city is “running out of money and running out of money quick.” Villalobos said, [relevant remarks begin around 1:45] “Well, for the city, it hasn’t been too, too much yet. Because we still had some FEMA, some federal funds. But we had to do the declaration. Because, look, it’s — we’re running out of money and running out of money quick. And, at the very end, this is not our responsibility. We don’t do this. We don’t deal with immigration. So, it’s making it difficult to us, to our community, wasting our resources, and not just money, I mean, manpower. It’s very difficult. Our community is now angry. Where before, we could handle it, I think that we’re at a point where it’s very difficult now.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

    Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, who led a review of the security failures leading up to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, said Sunday that if Capitol Police had a National Guard quick reaction force in place during the riots, the events that day “could have been totally different.” The House on Thursday narrowly passed a $1.9 billion spending bill to upgrade Capitol security in a 213-212 vote. The measure includes $200 million to establish a standing quick reaction force within the D.C. National Guard dedicated to responding to crises in the district. Last week, the ranking members of the House and Senate Armed Services committees, however, said they “firmly oppose creating a D.C. National Guard Quick Reaction Force.” In a joint statement released Wednesday, Rep.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump incited a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol, put his own vice president in danger and later expressed solidarity with rioters who attempted to overturn the 2020 election in his name, Democrats argued Thursday as they wrapped up opening arguments in Trump’s impeachment trial. Over two days of testimony, the Democrats asserted that Trump deliberately ordered his supporters to “fight like hell” and “go by very different rules” or they “wouldn’t have a country anymore.” They bolstered their case with accounts from the rioters themselves, some of whom said they were acting on Trump’s orders. The former president’s defense team insists Trump’s speech near the White House was protected under the First Amendment. And they argue he shouldn’t be on trial in the Senate because he is no longer in office — an argument Democrats reject. “The First Amendment does not create some superpower immunity from impeachment,” said Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat who is leading the prosecution. “If you don’t find this a high crime and misdemeanor today, you have set a new...

    The Trumpist mob that descended on Washington to coerce lawmakers into illegally overturning an election in favor of its loser was shocked to meet resistance from police. Had they not been the ones waving Blue Lives Matter flags ever since Ferguson, the ones defending police every time an officer knelt on a Black neck, bodyslammed a Black teenage girl, shot a Black 12-year old boy dead on sight? Yet on the night before the march, they found D.C. police unwilling to let them do as they like, and even skirmished with cops who blocked them from entering Black Lives Matter Plaza. Those cops seemed not to understand that MAGA were not the ones to be policed. “We don’t got your back no more!” one yelled. “We’re the business owners! We’re the veterans!” On Wednesday afternoon, high on their own insurrectionary zeal, supplied by Donald Trump and re-upped by nationalists like Josh Hawley, they found encouraging signs. Once they reached the Capitol grounds, they encountered only flimsy-gated barricades, minimally manned by Capitol Police, and easily pushed past them. Few police they...

    The free-agency market in the NBA demands quick and calculated decision-making. A franchise has to be ‘pit-stop’ quick to fix its troubles by signing the right talent. The Philadelphia 76ers somehow pulled this logical stunt, not once, but twice in the past month. The team successfully signed the likes of Doc Rivers and Daryl Morey to strengthen their on-court performance as well as the front office. The brains of these NBA greats, coupled with a fairly young team with a lot of talent, can prove to be a new dawn for the Sixers. How did the Sixers manage to sign Daryl Morey? The co-owner of the franchise, Michael G. Rubin, gave an interview where he heaped praise on various executives who made this deal possible. He began by suggesting, “After the end of this season, it’s fair to say we were all disappointed with where we were. You’ve got to turn negatives into positives. Led by Josh Harris, we had a major mission. How to upgrade all aspects of basketball organization, started of course with Doc Rivers.” The Sixers...

    Need to stay updated on coronavirus news in Texas? Our evening roundup will help you stay on top of the day’s latest updates. Sign up here. The sight became familiar across Texas after the coronavirus pandemic abruptly closed schools last spring — empty school buses rigged with Wi-Fi routers sat in parking lots and neighborhoods, allowing students to tap into free internet to do their schoolwork. But with more students returning to in-person classes, some school districts now need to get those buses back on the road while still figuring out how to provide internet access to families needing it. The Austin Independent School District has been deploying 261 Wi-Fi-equipped buses across 40 neighborhoods with little or no home internet access, said Eduardo Villa, a district spokesperson. Drivers not needed to haul loads of students to school and away sports events stationed their buses as internet access points on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, said Kris Hafezizadeh, the district’s executive director of transportation. Austin's schools reopened for in-person classes Monday. While bus drivers will still have Wi-Fi duty,...

    In normal times, food trends often started in restaurants, with top chefs. Maybe they got written up in food magazines or blogs. After some time, you could find the trending ingredients on grocery store shelves. These days, the pandemic is determining how and what we eat, from quick shortcuts to slow cookers. There’s lots more home cooking, and many more family meals. Even when people do eat restaurant food, they’re often looking for familiar dishes, experts say. In general, “the trend is looking backwards rather than forwards,” says Esmee Williams, who looks at where home cooking is heading for Allrecipes.com, based in Seattle. Recipes from the 1960s and ’70s like chicken Kiev, chicken a la king, cheese fondue and salmon patties have become more popular, she says. “There’s a lot of disappointment happening in our days, so nobody wants tears at the table. Let’s treat ourselves to something we all will like,” says Williams. It’s part of a nostalgia wave sweeping many industries, including decor, fashion and beauty. BACK TO BASICS A year ago, Williams says, many foodies were aspirational...
    DENVER (AP) — It wasn’t that long ago that the NFL nixed Tony Romo’s fantasy football convention at a Nevada casino because of the league’s strict policy against having anything to do with sports betting. Now, the NFL is betting big on the once taboo industry, loosening its gambling policies just as the finishing touches were being made at Allegiant Stadium, the Raiders’ spiffy new home within earshot of the neon-soaked Las Vegas Strip. When the league voted in May to allow teams to sign sponsorship deals with gambling entities, the first team to place its bets was the Denver Broncos. (credit: CBS) The Broncos capitalized on a confluence of events: Colorado’s new sports gambling law that was approved by voters and the league’s lifting of its ban on sportsbook advertising. During a pandemic when new sponsorship opportunities were nearly non-existent, the Broncos signed a trio of gambling sponsors: one with FanDuel Group that includes stadium signage; another with BetMGM that features a sports betting lounge at Empower Field and a sports betting app; and one with Betfred USA Sports,...
