latest news at page 1:
    The family of a Texas soldier who was sexually harassed and killed at a military base near Killeen in 2020 filed a lawsuit Friday seeking $35million in damages from the US government. Vanessa Guillen, 20, was murdered near the military base in 2020 by fellow soldier Aaron Robinson, then 20, who bludgeoned her with a hammer, removed her body from an armory at Fort Hood, Texas, and then dismembered her and buried her remains on April 22 of that year.  Robinson died as cops moved to arrest him, with his death reported as a suicide.  An investigation by military officials into the death of Guillen, who was killed by a fellow soldier at US Army base Fort Hood, found that she was also sexually harassed and that leaders failed to take appropriate action.  The lawsuit describes two instances in which Guillen was harassed during her time as a soldier and Guillen's suicidal thoughts as a result of coping with the harassment, which she told family that she did not report for fear of retaliation. Guillen's family is seeking damages on the basis of...
    The San Diego Padres have traded for Juan Soto and Josh Bell and former White Sox manager and current analyst Ozzie Guillen is a fan. The San Diego Padres made the biggest splash of the MLB Trade Deadline as they have acquired outfielder Juan Soto and first baseman Josh Bell for a slew of prospects. Details have changed a bit, since Eric Hosmer (who would go from San Diego to Washington in the deal) has a no-trade clause to the Nationals. He could either be removed from the or could hear to a third team. Either way, it will be the biggest trade of the trade deadline and one of the biggest trades in MLB Trade Deadline history. Former Chicago White Sox manager and current TV pre- and post-game analyst Ozzie Guillen is a fan of the move. He put his thoughts on San Diego’s return very succinctly on Twitter.

    Some White Sox fans thought Ozzie Guillen’s criticism of Tony La Russa was him coming for the managerial job, but the baseball legend cleared things up. You can always count on Ozzie Guillen to have something to say, for better or worse. And there’s been a mix of both for the former Chicago White Sox manager. Not only did he get into a Twitter beef with MLB insider Jon Heyman on Wednesday but that incident came days after he sent some waves through fans on the Southside when he referred to manager Tony La Russa as “Rick Renteria with credentials.” While there has been plenty of criticism of La Russa throughout a disappointing 2022 season for the White Sox in which they’ve looked miles away from being the contenders many expected them to be this season, some around the baseball perceived the comments as Guillen trying to make a play for La Russa’s job. Thus, Guillen had to set the record straight on the White Sox postgame show on Wednesday (you know, after his busy day of Twitter beefing).White Sox:...
    Former Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is in a Twitter war with MLB insider Jon Heyman. Former MLB manager Ozzie Guillen made some waves in the MLB news cycle regarding his comments about Chicago White Sox skipper Tony La Russa. Guillen was incredibly critical of La Russa, calling him “Rick Renteria with credentials.” After the comments were spread on social media, MLB insider Jon Heyman responded to them, asking if it’s possible for someone to get someone else’s job by “insulting them on a postgame show.” Well, Guillen saw the tweet from Heyman, and it began a lengthy exchange between the two. My wife will be mad but tired of this liar talking about me. Your a jelous man that me with shit English do the job you do. All you do is lie about stories. I get paid to talk baseball just like you.

    CHICAGO, IL – JULY 18: Former manager Ozzie Guillen of the Chicago White Sox speaks to the crowd during a ceremony honoring the 10th anniversary of the 2005 World Series Champion Chicago White Sox team before a game against the Kansas City Royals at U.S. Cellular Field on July 18, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images) The Chicago White Sox have been atrocious and it has caused strife in the clubhouse and in the managerial office. If Tony La Russa is fired, here are three possible replacements for him. Tony La Russa is a Hall of Fame manager. But after not managing for a decade, he decided to come back to where it all started: the Chicago White Sox. They reached the playoffs this year but the team has been an unmitigated disaster this year, as they are four games under .500 through 86 games. A lot of it has to do with some of the asinine managerial moves that La Russa has made and the clubhouse. Either during this season or after the season, the White...
    Former Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen throws more animosity Tony La Russa’s way with every defeat. Is it time to make a change? This ends with one of Guillen or La Russa losing their job. It’s an old-fashioned showdown between two of the more outspoken veteran managers in their sport. Guillen’s job is to give his opinion, while La Russa’s is to lead this White Sox team back to the postseason. Say what you want about Ozzie — he’s doing his gig just fine. TLR, meanwhile, could be in jeopardy of losing his managerial job as season’s end. Chicago lost again on Tuesday afternoon, this time to the Cleveland Guardians. The game featured a little bit of everything, including an intentional walk of Jose Ramirez on an 0-1 count. It’s not the first time La Russa has seemingly fallen asleep mid at-bat.

    Former Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen put Tony La Russa on blast for the current state of the team, and some reported locker room unrest. A recent report of clubhouse drama points the finger straight back at La Russa, who is supposed to be the sort of stable voice to keep that from happening in the first place. Instead, as the ChiSox continue to struggle, La Russa is out of answers. Bob Nightengale reported that Chicago’s lackluster season thus far has led to a disgruntled locker room. “No one has been more disappointing than the Chicago White Sox, who must take a good hard look at what went wrong if they miss the playoffs. There have been a lot of whispers of unrest, cliques and the lack of player leadership inside the clubhouse tearing apart this talented team.” Chicago White Sox: Ozzie Guillen puts Tony La Russa on blastFormer Sox manager Ozzie Guillen called out La Russa for refusing to get his troops in order.

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — As public pressure mounts for more information on the deadly Uvalde school shooting, some are concerned that Texas officials will use a legal loophole to block records from being released — even to the victims’ families — once the case is closed. Since the May 24 shooting at a Texas elementary school that left 19 kids and two teachers dead, law enforcement officials have provided little or conflicting information, sometimes withdrawing statements hours after making them. State police have said some accounts were preliminary and may change as more witnesses are interviewed. A number of questions remain unanswered by authorities: Why did police take more than an hour to enter the classroom and confront the gunman? What do their body cameras show? How did law enforcement officers communicate with one another and the victims during the attack? What happened when dozens of officers gathered outside the classroom, yet refrained from pursuing the shooter? Officials have declined to release more details, citing the investigation. Amid the growing silence, lawyers and advocates for the victim’s families are beginning...
    Former Bolivian President Jeanine Anez was sentenced to 10 years in prison Friday on charges she illegally took over the presidency. The court’s decision to punish Anez, who took office in 2019 following the resignation of former President Evo Morales, was politically motivated, her lawyer Luis Guillen said, according to the New York Times. Guillen also argued that Bolivia’s current government, led by a socialist ally of Morales, broke the law in its treatment of Anez during her detention. His team will now “exhaust resources within the country and then appeal to international organizations,” Guillen said. BIDEN CALLS ON CEOS TO 'STEP UP' INVESTMENTS IN LATIN AMERICA TO DRIVE DEMOCRACY Ivan Lima, the justice minister of the country, said there was “no evidence” to support the allegations and that the country's government "respects the rules of due process." Her defense team has insisted that she had to step in to fill a power vacuum in 2019, with Anez arguing Friday that her rise to power was “a consequence of all that happened” two years ago...

    A top-ranking Mexican drug lord who at one time headed the Gulf Cartel and is believed responsible for moving large shipments of cocaine into Houston, Texas, was extradited Thursday to face a U.S. judge. Known in the criminal underworld as “Metro 1”, “M1”, “Gordo” or “Señor Gordo”, Mario Cárdenas Guillén is a brother of the former leader of the Gulf Cartel and founder of Los Zetas, Osiel Cárdenas Guillén. Metro 1 is also a brother to the late Antonio Ezequiel “Tony Tormenta” Cárdenas Guillén, who was killed in 2010 by the Mexican Navy in Matamoros. This week, the Mexican Attorney General’s Office (FGR) handed Cárdenas Guillén to U.S. authorities at the Mexico City International Airport. Cardenas Guillen is named in a 2012 criminal indictment from Eastern District of Texas on a cocaine conspiracy charge. If convicted, he could face a possible life sentence in prison. Señor Gordo was arrested in September 2012 in the border state of Tamaulipas. At the time, he was the top leader of the Gulf Cartel after inheriting control from his late brother, Tony Tormenta in...
    The Chicago White Sox lost again to the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night, 6-2. Ozzie Guillen and Frank Thomas weren’t thrilled with the performance. Both Guillen and Thomas are analysts for NBC Sports Chicago, which televises the White Sox games locally. Ozzie himself got in some trouble with Tim Anderson on Tuesday after he questioned why Tony La Russa was keeping the 27-year-old shortstop out of the lineup. Anderson didn’t take kindly to that. On Wednesday night, the South Siders continued their recent slide with a 6-2 loss at the hands of the lowly Royals. Guillen was joined by Thomas, a Hall of Famer, this time around to express their disappointment in the on-field product.

    Former Chicago White Sox manager and player Ozzie Guillen and his wife, Ibis, in December sold a two-bedroom condominium on the third floor of a Near West Side condo building for $410,000. Now an in-studio analyst for NBC Sports Chicago, Guillen played for the Sox from 1985 until 1997 and then managed the team from 2004 until 2011, including leading the club to the 2005 World Series title. Guillen and his wife now live in southwest suburban Homer Glen, where they paid $465,000 in 2020 for a house.

    A Texas Democrat has jumped parties and joined the Republicans after becoming infuriated with his party's policies on defunding the police and the current 'chaos' on the southern border.  Ryan Guillen, a Texas State Representative for House District 31, made the announcement in a press conference on Monday. He won't cross the aisle immediately but will instead seek reelection in the same  south Texas seat. Guillen blames his switch from the Democrats as being as a result of the party moving further to the left meaning the party's values no long align with his own citing the 'Defund the police' movement and crisis on the border as the catalysts for his sudden departure.    Rep. Ryan Guillen says he is switching parties after Republicans made inroads in South Texas and redistricting made his district much more favorable to the GOP 'This has been the worst kept secret at the Capitol.

    FLORESVILLE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP)- A longtime Democratic lawmaker from South Texas switched parties Monday, Nov. 15, giving Republicans another boost in their attempts to make inroads with voters along the U.S.-Mexico border. State Rep. Ryan Guillen has been one of the most conservative Democrats in the Texas House of Representatives since 2002. State Rep. Ryan Guillen (credit: Ryan Guillen on Twitter) His switch to the GOP comes after his rural border district was redrawn to heavily favor Republicans under new maps signed in October by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. Guillen said his values no longer aligned with Democrats, who criticized him for switching rather than staying in the party and fighting for his seat. The Texas border has long been a stronghold for Democrats. But the GOP is now looking to expand their reach along the border after former President Donald Trump made unexpected gains there in 2020.

While Guillen ran as a Democrat throughout the bulk of his political career, the Republican Party of Texas noted that he has spent his nearly two decades in the Texas Legislature as a “pro-Life advocate, including votes for the 2021 Heartbeat Law, the 2013 20-week abortion ban, and...

    Ozzie Guillen really wishes the Chicago Cubs ownership group would treat Sammy Sosa better. While he made a name for himself playing and later managing on the South Side with the Chicago White Sox, Ozzie Guillen is a bit perplexed as to why the relationship between Sammy Sosa and the Chicago Cubs is as fractured as it is.
