FORT WORTH (CBS11) – On what is traditionally its busiest night of the week, Sweet Sammies only had one paying customer.
Saturday night, a man the Fort Worth ice cream shop identified as “Mr. Gary,” racked up a $1,300 bill by picking up strangers’ tabs.
“He stood here all night and bought everyone’s ice-cream until we closed,” said shop owner Kory Close.

When ICE released the first ‘Declined Detainer Outcome Report’, in compliance with President Trump’s Executive Order titled “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States,” ANP reported that 118 sanctuary jurisdictions had released 206 of some of the most violent criminal aliens that had been charged and/or convicted of heinous crimes, despite U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement having placed detain orders on those illegal immigrants. (Report embedded in ANP article titled “Citizens Rise Up Against City Officials As ICE Releases List Of 118 Sanctuary Cities That Are Not Complying With The Law“)
According to that report, nearly 70 percent (142 of the 206) were released by one Texas county, Travis County, releasing more convicted and/or charged criminal aliens than all the other sanctuary jurisdictions combined nationwide, back onto the streets of Texas…. [read more]
Buoyed by several sports leagues punishing the State of North Carolina over its bathroom bill, the National Football League now warns that it will boycott the State of Texas, blocking future Super Bowl games, if Texas enacts a similar law.
The Lone Star State has been mulling a law mandating that people can only use bathrooms and changing facilities that match up with their birth gender and barring transgender people from choosing whichever bathroom they feel like using at any given time.
“Legislation to protect women’s privacy and business is essential to assure that sexual predators … will not be able to freely enter women’s restrooms, locker rooms or showers,”Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said in a statement.
But now the NFL is warning Texas against enacting such a law…. [read more]
lhwm opinion: We are located in Texas and as someone who lives here, we personally do not want this bill to placed as a law. We particular do not want to go somewhere and be concerned about people lying to use the restroom for their gain and cause someone to be hurt. We hope NFL sticks to their word if Texas does initiate such a law. Believer’s we need prayers that this does not happen. We pray for our enemies, but we need to speak up and not shy away at a time like this. Pray!
Psalm 140 Good News Translation (GNT)
A Prayer for Protection
1 Save me, Lord, from evildoers; keep me safe from violent people. 2 They are always plotting evil, always stirring up quarrels. 3 Their tongues are like deadly snakes; their words are like a cobra’s poison. 4 Protect me, Lord, from the power of the wicked; keep me safe from violent people who plot my downfall. 5 The proud have set a trap for me; they have laid their snares, and along the path they have set traps to catch me. 6 I say to the Lord, “You are my God.” Hear my cry for help, Lord! 7 My Sovereign Lord, my strong defender, you have protected me in battle. 8 Lord, don’t give the wicked what they want; don’t let their plots succeed. 9 Don’t let my enemies be victorious; make their threats against me fall back on them. 10 May red-hot coals fall on them; may they be thrown into a pit and never get out. 11 May those who accuse others falsely not succeed; may evil overtake violent people and destroy them. 12 Lord, I know that you defend the cause of the poor and the rights of the needy. 13 The righteous will praise you indeed; they will live in your presence.

Late last week, according to the Austin American- Statesman, the newly elected sheriff of Travis County, Texas, Sally Hernandez, vowed to limit cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials saying that she would only honor immigration holds for suspects booked into the Travis County Jail on charges of capital murder, aggravated sexual assault and “continuous smuggling of persons”.
Traditionally, the county has honored nearly all requests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to hold a suspect booked into jail when agents have wanted to investigate their status further.
However, effective Feb. 1, sheriff’s officials will honor so-called immigration holds or “detainers” placed by federal authorities only when a suspect is booked into the Travis County Jail on charges of capital murder, aggravated sexual assault and “continuous smuggling of persons.”… [read more]
lhwm opinion: Somewhere along the way the influence of thought became, America is not allowed to protect herself from those who will and desire to commit acts of violence against the people of the United States. If you want to know what happens when a nation opens its borders to whoever and no longer looks to protecting their own citizens, heritage, or laws look at Europe.
