Cops in New Orleans - Good News

Leaked secret debate rehearsals. Trump plans to abide by no rules, use the "F" word and declare himself the winner and the greatest debater history has ever known.

I propose a new tax for anyone using the word "surreal" on television. THAT alone could fix our educational system.

A new video of Donald Trump is going viral throughout social media. Entitled “Trump Exposes Trump,” detractors of the billionaire turned Republican Presidential nominee say the video shows Trump has no real opinion on the issues at all, and that he just says whatever comes into his head at a given moment. Among the issues raised in the video are his support of the Iraq War. Trump has repeatedly stated on the campaign trail that he has always opposed the Iraq War, yet in an interview in 2002 on the Howard Stern radio show, Trump is shown to support military action in the country. The video also calls into question his opinion of Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton. While today Trump frequently calls her “Crooked Hillary,” in the past he has said that she is “very talented,” and did a good job as Secretary of State under President Barack Obama.
The video also calls into question Trump’s overall political philosophy. Trump currently dubs himself a conservative, yet in the past he has said that he identifies himself as a member of the liberal-leaning Democratic Party. Trump even went so far as to suggest that conservatives were “too crazy” for him. A segment even suggests that Trump has flip-flopped in his stance on abortion, at one point calling himself “very pro-life” and in another saying that he is “very pro-choice.”
Since the Republican National Convention, Trump’s campaign has met numerous obstacles, mostly due to the candidate’s aggressive nature. His feud with a Gold Star Family and flippant response to being given a supporter’s Purple Heart Medal have led many political commentators and pundits to dub the week’s events as among the most damaging of any presidential candidate’s campaign in recent history. This latest video is sure to stir the pot even more, and lead more voters to question if Trump is qualified to be America’s next president.

The Brief: DPS Requests $1 Billion for Border Security

The Big Conversation

Security along the U.S.-Mexico border could become a $1 billion expense to the state, following a total budget request from the Department of Public Safety for an additional $320 million — on top of a base budget of $750 million — in the new two-year budget.
The proposed funding would be used to cover the cost of salaries for the 250 troopers approved last year, recruitment for another 250 troopers and new technology and equipment. However, many Democrats are skeptical about whether the additional funding would be worth it, especially with worries about a tight state budget. State Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Dallas, told the Dallas Morning News that “if DPS wants $1 billion — after getting almost a billion last session — taxpayers need to know what they are paying for.”
In February 2014, Gov. Greg Abbott proposed a $345 million plan to hire 500 additional border troopers. At the time, his goal was to halt drug cartels and increase security. Abbott has not commented on DPS’ request.
As the Tribune’s Jay Root reports, border security has remained a top issue in Texas. On Thursday, the brother of a U.S. Border Patrol agent who has been charged with capital murder in a reported Mexican cartel drug hit struck a plea deal. The defendant, Fernando Luna, pleaded guilty to drug possession and the murder of a Honduran immigrant.
