Rob Bluey: What prompted your interest in the issue of climate change? There’s a great photo of you in the book next to a wanted poster. How did you become such a villain to the left?
Marc Morano: I always said I was a Republican, except when it came to environmental issues. I remember not liking James Watt, the former interior secretary. I remember not liking President Ronald Reagan’s environmental policies. I always wanted to be a forest ranger as a kid growing up. I got heavily involved emotionally in watching all the documentaries about the Amazon rainforest back in the 1980s and 1990s.
We’ve spoken with several conservative legislators the last couple of days. We are incensed that NONE of the independent gun rights groups were invited to the Abbott table and that our conservative legislators were shut out of the conversation too. When gun control advocates leave the Governor’s meeting high-fiving each other, you know there’s a reason for concern.
Texas House Democrats are claiming that Gov. Abbott is backing a radical gun control bill they supported in 2017.
At a press conference in Dallas on Wednesday, Gov. Greg Abbott outlined several proposals for new gun safety measures in the wake of the Santa Fe shooting earlier this month.
Included in his proposals, Abbott asked the legislature to study during the interim a bill to create “mental health protective orders,” that would “keep guns out of the hands of those mentally unfit to bear arms, but only after legal due process is allowed to ensure Second Amendment rights are not violated.”
By criticizing the weaknesses of all preceding nuclear agreements with Iran and North Korea, President Trump may have painted himself into a diplomatic corner by limiting diplomatic flexibility. Any agreement that the Trump Administration reaches with Pyongyang must be better than the Iran nuclear agreement, previous international denuclearization accords with North Korea, and U.N. resolutions imposing punitive measures on North Korea. It must also achieve a verification regime that is equal to or greater than those in arms control treaties with the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact, e.g., include such measures as full declaration of all overt and covert sites (production, testing, and storage), the nuclear weapons arsenal, and stockpile of fissile materials and short-notice inspections of non-declared facilities.
When a Clear Brook, Va., resident saw an intruder’s hands reaching through his bedroom window, he fired his 12-ga. shotgun, killing the interloper. Deputies found the suspect dead in the yard after they responded to a 9-1-1 call when the homeowner reported the shooting. (The Winchester Star, Winchester, VA, 3/5/18) The Armed Citizen® Extra
One Friday morning, an ex-convict attempted to pry open the front door of a home using a crowbar and hammer. The 70-year-old homeowner and his wife awoke to the noise, upon which the homeowner retrieved his handgun and went to investigate the commotion. He confronted the intruder, who surrendered, while the homeowner’s wife called police. The husband held the man at gunpoint until authorities arrived and arrested him.

After a series of break-ins of his gas station near Mooresville, N.C., Roy Bumgardner was sleeping in the place when two intruders removed an air conditioning unit to gain entrance. The station operator fired his cal. .38 revolver at the burglars, dropping one at the scene, the other fleeing with a leg wound only to be captured later by police.

The Parker County Commissioners Court called an election on Monday that will allow voters outside a city’s limits to decide whether or not that city can annex their land, the first election of its kind in Texas history.
Stop Involuntary Annexation in Parker County collected far more than the required number of signatures for a petition to call the election in November, Elections Administrator Don Markum told the court.
The required number of signatures was 8,926, and the elections office received 15,026 signatures.
Nearly one year into his tenure, Neil Gorsuch seems to be having the time of his life.
The Supreme Court’s newest justice is reveling in his role, diving into arguments with gusto and so far fulfilling the expectation that he would be a rock-ribbed conservative in the mold of his predecessor, the late Antonin Scalia.
In doing so, he’s shaken up the dynamics of the highest court in the land.
Parker County Sheriff’s Investigators are seeking the identity of the juveniles who own two bicycles, left at the scene of a criminal mischief call.
On Monday, March 12, Sheriff’s deputies were called to the 200-block of Sandy Oaks Road, in Springtown, around 3 p.m.
The complainant stated four males, possibly juveniles, were reportedly inside an abandoned trailer house, damaging the house and property.
Deputies located four young males at the cul-de-sac near the abandoned home, and attempted to make contact with them. When the juveniles observed the deputies approaching them, they dropped two of the bikes, fled on foot and jumped into a ravine.
Soon it will be time to vote in the mid-term election. Several people have asked for my opinion on the candidates. While I am always willing to make a recommendation, may I suggest you give my opinion a weight of about 20% and the remaining 80% to verifiable facts that you actually examine for yourself.
