GLENN BECK BACK FROM SUSPENSION WITH FEWER ADVERTISERS!

DO YOU THINK HIS DAYS ARE NUMBERED AT FOX?

Glenn Beck is back from vacation with fewer advertisers because he called President Obama a racist. A total of 33 sponsors, including Wal-Mart, CVS, Clorox and Sprint told Fox they’d no longer advertise during Beck’s show. Beck said last month that Obama was a racist with a “deep-seated hatred for white people.” Once Beck made the comment and the advertisers started disappearing FOX took the action of suspending him. Some called it vacation I’m sure Beck calls it a lesson learned. You can’t simply say what you want when there are advertisers involved!

GRUESOME DISCOVERY IN HARRIS COUNTY!

IT’S NOT WHAT YOU TYPICALLY FIND IN A NAVIGATOR!

On August 24, 2009 at approximately 6:55 p.m., the Harris County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to an abandoned vehicle located at 12028 Crosby Lynchburg Rd. Upon arrival, Patrol Deputies were able to determine that a male was deceased in the vehicle, a 2003 Lincoln Navigator and had been deceased for an unknown length of time.

Due to the decomposition of the body, no injuries to the body were evident. The Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office transported the body to the Harris County Medical Examiner’s office where it was determined Mr. Ladson had been the victim of a gunshot wound and a victim of a homicide.

Anyone with information about this case is requested to call Crime Stoppers, 222-TIPS or the Sheriff’s Homicide Unit at 713-967-5810.

R. ALLEN STANFORD WON’T BE GETTING OUT OF JAIL!

THE LATEST ON THE FEDERAL CASE!

A federal appeals court ruled Monday that billionaire R. Allen Stanford must stay in jail until his Texas trial on fraud charges.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans upheld a lower-court ruling that revoked Stanford’s bond on the grounds that he is a flight risk. The judges wrote that Stanford “has the means, the motive, and the money to flee.”

Stanford and four executives of his now defunct Stanford Financial Group are accused of orchestrating a massive Ponzi scheme in a criminal indictment in Houston. Investigators said Stanford secretly diverted more than $1.6 billion in investor funds as personal loans to himself.

If convicted, he faces up to 375 years in prison, according to Monday’s ruling.

Stanford “has access to an international network of contacts” and “has demonstrated an ability to access funds from acquaintances even if his own assets are frozen,” the judges noted.

The government maintains Stanford has a secret Swiss bank account from which he withdrew about $100 million late last year while the Securities and Exchange Commission was investigating the Stanford Financial Group.

Stanford’s attorneys had argued that the 59-year-old was not a flight risk, citing his family ties in Houston.

But the appeals court disputed those ties, claiming Stanford had “only recently established some of those connections for purposes of his impending trial.”

THE INSITE TAKES OVER THE JACKIE O LOOK AT FOX 26!

IS THIS THE LOOK OF THE FUTURE FOR THE INSITE?


It was just sitting there so I decided to grab the sunglasses and sport them on Facebook. I’m talking about FOX 26 anchor Damali Keith’s Jackie O sunglasses. The eye wear is named after the former first lady who made them famous. I think I can pull it off on a very dark day when no one is paying close attention to me. But Ketih wasn’t having it. After she took the Facebook picture of me she claimed her high fashion glasses, flung her hair, and walked out the door. I guess that’s the end of my Jackie O experience!

GENE LOCKE ADDS ANOTHER MAJOR ENDORSEMENT TO HIS CAMPAIGN FOR MAYOR!

THE MAYORAL CANDIDATE AND HIS LATEST CROP OF SUPPORTERS: THE COPS!









The Houston Police Officers’ Union (HPOU) today announced their endorsement for Gene Locke for mayor of Houston and his 7-Point Plan to Keep Houston Safe.

Several members of HPOU in t-shirts that read “Support Houston Police Officers, Elect Gene Locke Mayor of Houston,” as well as many of Locke’s supporters joined in the press conference. In addition Senator John Whitmire, “Dean of the Texas Senate,” also spoke at the press conference. Whitmire announced his endorsement of Locke in May.

“We are confident that Gene Locke is the candidate who has a realistic and clear-cut plan to improve and modernize public safety services in our city,” said Gary Blakenship, President of HPOU. “He has developed a multi-pronged plan of attack to help our members fight crime more efficiently and effectively.”

Blakenship continued, “It is our firm and unwavering belief that Gene Locke is the best candidate to lead our city for the next six years.”

HPOU, with its 5000-plus members, is the largest police union in the State of Texas. They have endorsed the last three mayors of the city of Houston, former Mayors Bob Lanier, Lee Brown and current Mayor Bill White.

For the first time in twelve years, HPOU joins the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association (HPFFA) in endorsing the same candidate for mayor in an open race. HPFFA announced their endorsement of Locke two weeks ago.

“This is a very proud moment for me and my campaign. The men and women of the Houston Police Department make a difference every day in the lives of Houstonians, and they will make a difference in this campaign,” said Locke at the press conference.


Some of the people attending the event were: Former Myor Bob Lanier, Gary Blankenship, Jeff Caynon, Mark Clark, Erica Fowler, Carol Alavarado, John Whitmire, JJ Berry, and many more!

GETTING AROUND TOWN: NOW THAT’S A REAL BALLER!

YOU THINK I CAN GET HIM TO RUN ME TO WALMART?

When you see many of the celebrities arriving on the red carpet for the big award shows they usually get out a limousine driven by a chauffeur. But everyone in Hollywood knows that’s as far as it goes. Most celebrities tend to drive themselves around in everyday life. Only the super rich with money falling out of their pockets have a driver around the clock. That brings me to former Houston Mayor Bob Lanier and his wife Elyse. They arrived to a political campaign with a real life driver. He was chauffeuring them around in one of those Mercedes Benz you can’t really afford unless you’re making some solid money. It was the S550. The car is listed on the Internet for the small price of $91,000 to $150,000. I call that baller. I ain’t hating. If could afford it I would have a driver drop me off at FOX 26 everyday. Then he’d have to run me to Walmart after work. That’s right – I took my Moms words – run me to Walmart!
