  • Bonehead Quote of the Week: Rick Perry on the Border

    Fri, 22 Aug 2014 16:33:24 +0000

    Nothing makes us want to facepalm more than a “the terrorists are coming!” claim. Despite the whole indictment and pleading not* guilty to two felony counts of abuse of power and coercion thing, Gov. Rick Perry was back to business as usual Thursday, speaking to fellow conservatives at a Heritage Foundation event in Washington D.C., where he claimed that it’s a “very real possibility” members of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) responsible for the killing of American journalist James Foley and violence in the Middle East are crossing into the United States via our border with Mexico. “I think there’s the obvious great concern that because of the condition of the border, from the standpoint of it not being secure and us not knowing who is penetrating across, that individuals from ISIS and other terrorist states could be,” Perry said in response to a question after his speech. (Watch Perry’s speech at the 56:20 timestamp, and hear the original question and his answer beginning at 1:24:30). “I think it’s a very real possibility that they may have already used (the border), we have no clear evidence of that,” he went on to say. Perry also said border officials have […]
  • NDO News: AT&T Opposes Release of Audio Recordings

    Fri, 22 Aug 2014 16:26:17 +0000

    The City of San Antonio wants a Texas attorney general opinion on whether it has to release audiotapes from the first case filed under the non-discrimination ordinance and AT&T is opposed to the tapes, as well as any other documents, being released. Sam Sanchez, publisher of the blog QSanAntonio, and Ryan Loyd, of Texas Public Radio, filed an open records request with COSA seeking all documents submitted by complainant Matthew Hileman, including audio files, Sanchez said. Hileman, a contract worker hired by Resource Global Profession, reported to supervisors that he heard two AT&T employees talking about how they would commit violence against transgender people. Hileman is transgender. According to Hileman’s affidavit filed with COSA, a few days after that conversation he found a “no fag” sign on his chair at work. An AT&T spokesperson told the Current in May that it investigated Hileman’s complaint and could not substantiate the allegations. Sanchez said all of the documents he requested were released to him, except for the audio recordings, which AT&T said were illegally obtained. According to AT&T’s letter to Sanchez, the recordings are of two AT&T employees and also of voicemail recordings from AT&T and Resource Global Profession employees. Sanchez said the city […]
