The Roundup

Article Icon 1Phelan Gets Help From Pro-Casino PAC

A new political action committee funded entirely by the wife of deceased casino mogul Sheldon Adelson spent more than $3 million to boost embattled Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan and a handful of his allies ahead of upcoming runoff elections.

According to its campaign finance report, Texas Defense PAC received $9 million from Miriam Adelson earlier this month, and $3 million was spent on ads for House incumbents Phelan, Justin Holland, John Kuempel, and Frederick Frazier.

Adelson is behind a major push to legalize casino gambling in Texas, which has failed to gain enough support in the state legislature.

Article Icon 1Pope Defends El Paso Shelter on ’60 Minutes’

Pope Francis took aim at Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s campaign to shut down an El Paso migrant shelter Sunday night on “60 Minutes,” calling the effort “sheer madness.”

During an interview on the prime-time CBS news program, the Pope argued that migrants crossing the border had to be received somewhere, legal or not, even if they were sent back afterward.

In a request for a temporary injunction against Annunciation House earlier this month, Paxton accused the migrant shelter of “operating a stash house and human smuggling.” A court has yet to decide on the matter.

Article Icon 1Texas Has Most Blocked Railroad Crossings

Texans encountered blocked railroad crossings 6,300 times last year, four times longer than those reported in any other state. In some instances, Texas drivers were delayed for several hours at a time.

Texas also has the most railroad crossings, with about 15,000, but data compiled by the U.S. Department of Transportation show the disparity with other states wasn’t seen in previous years.

A practice known as precision-scheduled railroading is partly to blame. The logistics strategy involves coupling more cars together to increase efficiency, stretching trains up to three miles long in some cases.

The Flyover


I’m medical scientist Clint Winters. 

In the world of anti-aging, there is nothing more powerful or controversial than HGH.

It has the reputation of “freezing age” for anyone that uses it.

… And now you can access it without expensive doctors or prescriptions.

No – I’m not giving you “illegal” information. 

Here is how HGH is now 100% legal and available in All 50 States

In a nutshell, after 5 years of intense study, there is now a naturally extracted form of IGF 1 (the conversion of HGH) that does not require a script to buy or use. 

… And it is already rapidly changing lives

In fact, it costs 90% less than traditional HGH treatments, making it affordable for anyone over 50 years old looking to get an edge on life.  

But don’t let the pricing fool you, this is a very powerful compound that has yielded stunning results for those over 40. 

Since 2019, it has been privately tested on over 15,000 aging Americans, many looking years (or even decades younger) in 30 days.

Heck, it has even personally changed my life.

After 41, this powerful compound has allowed me to virtually age backwards.  Results so powerful it is still very much banned in tested sports. 

As you may recall, this breakthrough is why Vijay Singh, Tiger Woods and Ray Lewis were all under fire due to their superhuman ability to heal and defy age.

Here is a private page explaining exactly how it works
