DAILY Screens  July 19, 2016, by Jacob Clifton
"...We're also invited into the hardcore, fascinating lives of two new power players, played by two incredible actresses: Sandrine Holt as an implacable and funny corporate monster, and Grace Gummer as a snake-in-the-grass FBI agent with stars in her eyes and knives in her boots. The always disarming (but not usually as chatty, a side to his charisma we don't usually get to see) Craig Robinson also joins the cast as a mysterious friend of Mr..."

News Story  July 14, 2016, by Kahron Spearman
"...The inherent question is: Of all professions available in America, why wouldn't deep psychological evaluation and (continuous) background checking rest at the foundation of prospective officer resourcing – especially given the longstanding knowledge (substantiated by a 2006 FBI report, "White Suprem­acist Infiltration of Law Enforce­ment") that white supremacists and racist sympathizers have infiltrated America's police force?..."

"...Means, a live wire if there ever was one, in turn threw a stink to everyone – calling ATD managers Carlton Thomas, Steve Grassfield, and David Bracken before hitting up the Chronicle and eventually Mayor Steve Adler.

UT professors discuss the rise of the Islamic state
DAILY News  March 1, 2016, by Dina Samir Shehata
"...ISIS was also able to transcend its ideology beyond its geographical borders; creating a fan base across the globe that subscribes to ISIS’ ideology without necessarily being ISIS members. Commenting on the case of Terry Loewen, an American citizen who was radicalized online and was accused of plotting an attack on Wichita Airport in Kansas in 2013, FBI Director James Comey was quoted in a 2015 report, “ISIS on the West: The New Faces of Extremism,” as saying, “We have made it so hard for people to get into this country, bad guys, but they can enter as a photon and radicalize somebody in Wichita, Kansas.”..."

"...Buck Pollard's speedy and peculiar exit as longtime chief leaves the position in turmoil for the former city-dwelling FBI agent McBride, who steps in unaware of the generations-deep web of good ol' boy secrets.

"... I agree with your criticism that many personalities should not have been merged into one. However, many people after seeing the movie will not completely understand the times and circumstances beyond how Dalton Trumbo's own life was affected. Nor should we be lulled into believing that anti-Communism is something from a bygone era as the FBI and state and local police still clandestinely operate "Red Squads" intended to deprive people of their constitutionally protected rights of freedom of speech and freedom of association. Perhaps it is too much to expect from Hollywood to make a movie dealing with all facets of McCarthyism. How many people know that it was the great "liberal" Hubert H..."

Point Austin: Getting From Here to There
Will the driver-eat-driver "free market" imposed by billionaire corporations rule the day?
News Column  December 23, 2015, by Michael King
"...Especially in the context of Austin's utterly inadequate mass transit network, I don't blame Adler and the others for trying whatever they can to appease the companies, make the regulations sufficient and workable, and both provide safe rides-for-hire and protect full-time drivers from even more erosion of their inadequate incomes. While the nominal issue is "fingerprinting" – and the enforcement agencies from the FBI down to Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo confirmed that fingerprints add an extra layer of certitude to the name-based security checks of the companies – it's something of a distraction...."

Point Austin: Shock and Awe ... Once Again
Our wars return to roost, and we blame the victims
News Column  November 19, 2015, by Michael King
"...Unsurprisingly, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was among the first to blame the victims for the European refugee crisis, in a letter informing President Obama that "the State of Texas will not accept any refugees from Syria in the wake of the deadly terrorist attack in Paris." Quoting (out of context) FBI Director James Comey on the difficulty of background checks – although in fact the federal government has already performed lengthy, successful reviews of about 2,000 Syrian nationals seeking asylum – Abbott insists it's just too dangerous: "American humanitarian compassion could be exploited to expose Americans to ....."

Attorney representing Jackson's family optimistic about civil trial
News Story  November 5, 2015, by Chase Hoffberger
"...District Judge Lee Yeakel issued an order dismissing an indictment against Kleinert that he'd committed manslaughter when he killed Larry Jackson. The decision was strictly technical; Kleinert may have recklessly caused Jackson's death under a bridge along the Shoal Creek Trail on July 26, 2013, but he did so while working on full-time assignment as a member of the FBI's Central Texas Violent Crimes Task Force..."

DAILY News  October 29, 2015, by Chase Hoffberger
"...However, a trial on those charges never happened. In April, Kleinert went before Judge Yeakel in an effort to transfer his case from Travis County into a federal court, citing the fact that he was working as a member off the Central Texas Violent Crime Task Force, a multi-agency team created by the FBI, and thus should be granted federal-officer removal jurisdiction – removing him from the potentially more liberal county court altogether..."

The Boy Wonder at 100
Alamo Drafthouse screens Orson Welles centennial retrospective
Screens Story  April 2, 2015, by Kimberley Jones
"...It was a critical success even then, though the strong arm of William Randolph Hearst, who was unhappy with the obvious resemblance, sucker-punched distribution; it took a while before Citizen Kane started being bandied about as the greatest movie ever made. Welles lost his right to edit the director's cut at home studio RKO and, after toying with going into politics (his FBI file put a stop to that), the "boy wonder" embodiment of the American Dream eventually went into semi-exile in Europe – a better fit for him, perhaps, both artistically and for finding willing financiers..."

Arts Column  November 20, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...Now, I know as confessions go, that doesn't exactly rank up there with "I was a Communist for the FBI," but I disclose it here as another way of saying, "Once upon a time, I believed in poetry" – not "believed" in the sense of holding poetry to be a venerable art form, rich in tradition and deserving of our study, no, "believed" in the sense of embracing poetry as a faith, as a channel to something deep in my being, deep in life, deep in the cosmos. Poetry struck a chord so powerfully in me that I felt impelled to communicate my own feelings through it and did so without any self-consciousness or embarrassment..."
