    This is the shocking moment three migrants 'bull-rushed' a Texas farmer's house and broke into his elderly grandparents' home as they tried to dodge Border Patrol. The man, who has asked to stay anonymous, revealed several minutes of surveillance footage that saw three out of eight illegal migrants attempt to break into various properties within view before finally getting into one. The video sees three immigrants running towards the street but then they suddenly turn back and attempt to gain access into nearby homes. A farmer living alongside the U.S.-Mexico border has shared video of migrants attempting to break into his Texas home At least three migrants could be seen attempting to see if doors were unlocked before eventually they were able to access the home of his elderly grandparents  The migrants hid in a kitchen pantry until Border Agents were on scene to take them into custody 'They tried to break into my house, that's locked.

    A Virginia man convicted of murdering his 18-year-old stepdaughter and hiding her body behind an abandoned house in 2015 has been sentenced to life in prison plus 15 years. Wesley Hadsell was convicted earlier this year of killing 18-year-old Anjelica “A.J.” Hadsell. He was sentenced Monday by a judge to the maximum allowed for each charge he was convicted of, including first-degree murder, concealing a body and possessing drugs in jail, The Virginian-Pilot reported. Hadsell asserted his innocence, suggesting his stepdaughter had killed herself, drawing a sharp rebuke from Circuit Judge L. Wayne Farmer at sentencing. “I have been wrongfully convicted of these crimes, but this fight is not over,” Hadsell told Farmer, saying he would appeal. Farmer scolded Hadsell for trying to pin the crime on others, then implying the woman took her own life. “To blame her — it’s offensive,” the judge said. “You took a beautiful life and dumped it like trash.” Prosecutors said the defendant had kidnapped the stepdaughter, assaulted her and then injected her with a lethal dose of heroin. She was spending her spring...
    By Joseph Donovan, WCCO-TV MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Some members of the Democratic Party in the Minnesota House think it’s time for the Minnesota state flag to get a redesign. READ MORE: U.S. Senate Confirms Andy Luger As U.S. Attorney For MinnesotaNew legislation introduced this week would redesign the official seal in a way that “accurately and respectfully reflects Minnesota’s shared history, resources, and diverse cultural communities,” according to the bill’s text. Redesigning the state seal would also mean updating the state flag. House Democrats are moving forward with legislation to create a 14-person committee to recommend new designs for the seal and flag. It was approved on March 22 by the House State Government Finance and Elections committee, which consists of nine Democrats and five Republicans. The vote was on party lines. “The state seal has imagery on it that is a problem,” said Rep. Mike Freiberg (DFL-Golden Valley). The current state flag depicts a white farmer in the foreground. The farmer is plowing the land while a Native American is riding a horse away from the farmer towards a...
    PEPPERELL (CBS) – A Pepperrell man died early Thursday morning, days after he was pulled from his burning home by a neighbor who sprung into action. A 911 call just before 10:30 p.m. Tuesday sent firefighters to 58 Mill Street — where they discovered the caller had done a lot more than just pick up the phone. READ MORE: Heavy Rain, Powerful Winds Coming Thursday Night Into Friday MorningAs workers boarded up the house Wednesday night, neighbor Sean Sullivan sat across the street watching in the same spot he had grabbed a cigarette just before bedtime the night before. It was Sullivan who heard a smoke detector beeping across the street, realized smoke was pouring from the house of Jim Farmer, and called 911. But he also suspected his 70-something neighbor was still in there. So, he threw open the door and found him — weak and incoherent. “‘Hey buddy, your house is on fire!’ I said that a couple of times,” Sullivan said. “I tried to help him up, but he couldn’t get up. He’s a pretty big guy,...
    This is the latest in a series called Plant PPL, where people of color in the plant world are interviewed. It’s an unlikely location for a farm: the front yard of a shared rental property in a residential neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley. But, Siri Lorece Hirth says, her neighbors often stop to admire her 1-year-old edible garden and visit the free farmstand she and her husband, Patrick, host on Sundays. “Only a small portion of land is available for us to grow anything, but we have found a way,” says Hirth of her former front lawn. Hirth has been gardening and growing food for years and founded her farm business — Creative Arts Farm — in 2015. “We were looking for land to expand, and we had a business plan,” she says. “When the pandemic hit, we thought about what we could do to help our community thrive during such a difficult time. I was doing garden consultations and thought, ‘Now is the time to offer wellness in a public way.’ I’m a business person. If I say...
                        A resolution that would determine if a judge committed an offense worthy of removal for changing the law regarding absentee voting was killed in the House Civil Justice Subcommittee Tuesday through several orchestrated actions, which “only emboldened and protected the judiciary,” according to the resolution sponsor. The resolution failed on a voice vote carried out by Chairman Andrew Farmer (R-Sevierville) with assistance by Rep. Michael Curcio (R-Dickson) who strategically timed his call for the question. HR 0023 is a resolution sponsored by Rep. Tim Rudd (R-Murfreesboro), but has a noteworthy 63 co-sponsors, all Republican. The extensive list includes the House Speaker and leadership and even Farmer, but not Curcio. Also of note is that no Democrats signed onto the measure. The purpose of the resolution, Rudd told the co-sponsors in an email following Tuesday’s meeting which he also provided to The Tennessee Star, is to establish a joint committee with the Senate to determine if Davidson County Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle committed an offense worthy of removal from...
    If Donald Trump is already eyeing the White House with a view to 2024, there was a time when once left the executive residence, American presidents first had to find sources of income, for lack of compensation. With LéNA, discover the best of European journalism. By Julie Connan (Le Figaro) Posted 01/21/2021 at 10:15 am Donald Trump has been following in the footsteps of the 35 men (the others succumbed during their mandate) for a few hours who took the often winding roads of the post-presidency before him. “While having many more options for retirement than the rest of us, this transition is difficult for them and their choices range from decency to disaster, from altruism to greed,” notes Stacy A. Cordery, historian and professor. at Iowa State University. Because there was a time when the preoccupation of an outgoing president was neither to land a huge publishing contract for his memoirs, nor to choose the location of a future library, and even less to continue to influence...
    PHOTO VIA FLORIDA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVESOn the eve of getting the gavel as Florida House speaker, Palm Harbor Republican Chris Sprowls took a bit of a victory lap Monday. After formally being selected by his fellow House Republicans to lead them for the next two years, Sprowls gave a speech that focused heavily on one number: 78. That is the number of House seats Republicans hold after expanding their already-large majority in the Nov. 3 elections by five seats. During a GOP caucus meeting in the House chamber, Sprowls recounted warnings he received that Democrats would pick up seats --- and the money that came in from outside groups to support Democratic candidates. “To all those national groups with their progressive donors and their fancy Washington, D.C., strategists, all I have to say is this: 78,” Sprowls said, drawing a standing ovation from Republican House members. Sprowls proceeded to point out a series of GOP lawmakers who won key races and said Republicans “outworked and outfought our opponents.” “We didn’t just hold the line,” Sprowls said. “We didn’t just pick...
    Sevierville Republican state Rep. Andrew Farmer has announced he will challenge Tennessee House Majority Leader Willaim Lamberth, R-Portland, for the House majority leader position this fall. Lamberth has served as majority leader since November 2018 after the position was vacated by Rep. Glen Casada, who pursued House speakership. Farmer and Lamberth are attorneys, and both were elected to the House in 2012. They received scores of 104% and the designation of “taxpayer heroes” on a taxpayer scorecard released by Americans for Prosperity earlier this year. Likewise, both have received high rankings from the American Conservative Union. Farmer received a score of 91 for his votes on ACU priority legislation in 2019, and Lamberth received a score of 90. Caucus elections will be held after Election Day. Farmer announced his candidacy in a letter to his colleagues. “Our caucus benefits from a wide range of abilities, viewpoints and experiences among the members,” Farmer wrote last month. “As Majority Leader, I will work to help every member effectively represent their district. … We only reach our full potential...
    WILSON, N.C. (AP) — A retired educator and county Democratic Party chairwoman will serve out the term of former North Carolina state Rep. Jean Farmer-Butterfield and seek her own two-year term in the fall. Democratic activists in Wilson County meeting on Saturday selected Linda Cooper-Suggs to fill the vacancy created when Farmer-Butterfield resigned from her 24th House District seat, The Wilson Times reported. Farmer-Butterfield stepped down last week after the legislature confirmed her as Gov. Roy Cooper’s nominee to join the North Carolina Employment Security Board of Review. The governor is now obligated by law to formally appoint Cooper-Suggs. Nine candidates were initially seeking the seat. Local party officials ultimately voted from a list of six hopefuls. Cooper-Suggs, the Wilson Democratic Party leader since 2017, also was picked as the candidate to take on Republican Mick Rankin in November. Farmer-Butterfield, a House member since 2003, had already won the Democratic primary in March. “I thank everyone for putting their trust in me and for their vote,” Cooper-Suggs said Saturday. “I thank everyone for their hard work. We are in this...
    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina lawmakers confirmed on Wednesday a veteran legislator to a state panel considered the last arbiter of unemployment benefit appeals, thus creating a vacancy in the General Assembly. The state House and Senate voted overwhelmingly to approve Gov. Roy Cooper's nomination of Wilson County Democratic Rep. Jean Farmer-Butterfield to the three-member North Carolina Employment Security Board of Review. The confirmation means Farmer-Butterfield will have to step down from her House seat. Democratic activists in the 24th House district will have to choose someone to complete her term through the rest of the year, as well as pick someone to replace her on the November ballot. Farmer-Butterfield, who joined the General Assembly in 2003, was praised by her colleagues during her confirmation floor debate for her commitment to the House and her constituents, as well as for her friendship. Her legislative work has emphasized health care and social services issues. Only one legislator voted no on her confirmation — Rowan County Republican Sen. Carl Ford.
