Search volunteers on Sunday discovered a body believed to be that of Amber Chantel Elkins, a 20-year-old Humble mother, in a wooded area of Montgomery County, an official said.
Tim Miller, founder and director of Texas EquuSearch, said the body was found near a bridge around 3:30 p.m. Officials are awaiting positive identification of the body, but believe it’s Elkins and notified her family, he said.
“Right now it’s the worst news they could ever imagine,” said Miller. “Now it’s real. Now she’s really not coming home.”
Tim Miller stated that it appeared that the body “was dumped in an isolated area.”
Miller said his team was searching the area off Gene Campbell Road and FM 1314 after receiving some information from detectives, their focus was on the woods near some cell towers.
“So, we just had our people out there, just concentrating on areas around these cell towers that we had information on,” said Miller.
Just the other day, Elkin’s boyfriend, James Clarke Jr, was charged with murder.
Our prayers go out to the family and friends of Amber Chantel Elkins … REST IN PEACE.
The Teflon Ex-Mom … Casey Anthony Skates Again on Probation Due To Technicality … Will Tot Mom Ever Be Held to any form of Justice?
Move over John Gotti, enter the Teflon tot mom …
Good Grief … Casey Anthony is like a bad penny. Once again she skates on being held accountable and the people are denied Justice. Looks like we no longer need to call her Tot mom, but instead the Teflon murdering ex-mom. Oh that’s right, Caylee Anthony drowned.
Casey Anthony was convicted of check fraud and sentenced to time and probation. or so we thought. Thanks to a court clerk not adding the following phrase, “once released”, and Judge Strickland signing the order, once again Casey Anthony dodges justice and is allowed to server her probation while she was in jail. UNREAL! Just how many times is the Teflon tot-mom going to escape justice? Just what the people needed, Casey Anthony getting away with yet another thing when it came to justice.
Prosecutors warned Strickland he might not be able to delay her probation until her possible release from jail and that she could end up serving it in jail.
When the clerk wrote up the probation order, she did not include the words “once released.” But Strickland signed it anyway, and it went to the Department of Corrections, which started Casey’s probation immediately on Jan. 25, 2010.
“Obviously the clerk lost the import of what the judge was trying to say and the judge signed it without picking up on the omission,” said WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer.
Just some more salt in the wound and a twisting of the knife, or is it just another layer of duct tape added to the injustice of a jury not finding Casey Anthony complicit in the death of Caylee Anthony. UNBELIEVABLE! Let this be a message to everyone, read what you are signing.
Debt Deal Reached Between House/Senate Leaders, Now Come the Votes … Obama Sprints to Podium to Hold Press Conference As If He were Involved
Tonight there appears to have been a Debt ceiling deal met between the Republican and Democrat leadership of the House and the US Senate. Interestingly enough, Barack Obama rushed to the podium and in front of the cameras to announce the deal as if he had anything to do with it.
I would be really interested to see if the credit agencies buy this sausage that was created as a legitimate form of debt reform. On Friday Moody’s said that neither the Boehner or Reid plan was adequate. Why would they think this compromise is? Wasn’t the point of this supposed to be that we not get downgraded and pay the bills? How can anyone really call this a success?
Also, Obama stated that he would be driving for tax increases in the future. Obama said that the rich need to pay their fair share of taxes. Are we or are we not going to raise taxes in the face of another possible recession? Just curious Barack, what about the 50% of individuals in the US who pay no taxes, are they going to pay their fair share to?
A bipartisan committee of House and Senators will meet later in the year and report back to Obama in November to suggest new solutions which may include tax hikes. Who really believes that in such a toxic environment that any such thing can be accomplished?
Overall, it would appear that Republicans and especially the TEA PARTY have won a major victory in the debt ceiling debate. However, this is far from over and just the beginning. For too many years the culture in DC has been to blindly tax and spend the people’s money without consequence. I agree with the Astute Blogger as they astutely stated, “LET’S DECLARE VICTORY (one the left hates even more for!) AND MOVE FORWARD TOGETHER TO EVEN BIGGER AND BETTER WINS.”
Please remember, it was not too long ago that Obama wanted a clean bill to raise the debt limit and give him a blank check.
Look for this to be the number two issue after jobs in the 2012 elections. Make no mistake about it … GREECE IS THE WORD, the United States need a Balanced Budget Amendment.
Make no mistake about it, the 2012 elections will decide whether the United States gets back to exceptionalism or whether we become Greece. With only having control of the House, the GOP managed to control the debt debate and shift it to the right … the GOP will need the Senate and Presidency to control really paying down the debt.
UPDATE I: Durbin: Debt Deal Will Be The Death Of Keynesian Economics … well let’s hope so.
UPDATE II: So does this mean the USA loses its AAA rating? How does this compromise even come close to what the rating agencies wanted?
UPDATE III: Speaker Boehner’s Talking Points to the GOP.
TWO-STEP APPROACH TO
HOLD PRESIDENT OBAMA ACCOUNTABLE
Emerging framework has three main features:
(1) cuts government spending more than it increases the debt limit;
(2) implements spending caps to restrain future spending;
(3) advances the cause of a Balanced Budget Amendment
Framework accomplishes this without tax hikes, which would
destroy jobs, while preventing a job-killing national default.
UPDATE IV: LIVE COVERAGE at Business Insiders: DEBT DEAL REACHED
TEA PARTY Already Has WON & Why Establishment GOP’ers Must Go … Senator Jon Kyl (AZ-R) Says Tea Party Republicans Remind Me a Lot of Senator Obama Who Was Also Refused to Raise Debt Limit
Tea Party like Obama … How out of touch are some Republicans and ever wonder why we have a government that spends our money with complete disregard?
Ever wonder why the debt, the economy and the jobs situation ever got to a place where we find it today? Its not just because of liberals and Progressives like Obama, Pelosi and Reid, they cannot help themselves … the blame also falls on establishment Republicans like Jon Kyl and RINO’s who have aided in the “look the other way”, out of control spending and raising debt limits without issue. How many times were these people going to raise the debt limit with complete disregard? Imagine running your household budget by the answer being, lets just put more on the credit card.
It is obvious that establishment Republicans must go, either by retirement or voted out of office. This could never have been more evident than the comment this morning of FOX NEWS SUNDAY whey Kyl said, “Tea Party Republicans remind me a lot of Senator Barack Obama who also refused to raise the debt limit.” WHAT???!!! Are you serious Senator? As the Gateway Pundit reminds us, it was not just Obama who voted against raising the debt limit under GWB, it was most of the Democrat party. They did not vote against raising the debt limit out of principle, they did so because they were going to vote against Bush at all cost. Get real.
A note to establishment Republicans and RINO’s, make no mistake about it, it was the TEA PARTY who made it possible that the GOP even has control of the US House of Representatives and made the margin in the US Senate much closer. The Tea Party revolution that took place during the 2010 midterm elections had nothing to do with the RINO’s and tired GOP Party. You just happened to be the beneficiaries.
Also, the TEA PARTY has already won the DEBT CEILING debate for if Barack Obama, Democrats and the useless progressives in the GOP had their way, Obama would have been given a blank check and clean bill that raised the debt ceiling. The TEA PARTY lead, while Obama stayed in the wings and tweeted. It was Barack Obama who stated from the outset that he wanted a clean bill to raise the debt ceiling.
New Obama Political Tone … Minority Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi Says GOP Speaker Boehner Went to the Dark Side
This must be more of that new tone in Washington DC that Barack Obama has been talking about.
In yet another example of that Obama new tone “Inside the Beltway,” House Democrat Minority leader Nancy Pelosi states that GOP House Speaker John Boehner has gone to the “Dark Side”. Such comments will do wonders for getting an agreement in the debt ceiling debate.Rather interesting comments coming from the Sith Lord or is it the Wicked Witch of the West, Pelosi. Once again the Democrats bring out their old tired playbook, when losing the debate and being forced to give up liberal principles like raising taxes, hurl personal insults instead.
Right before the House voted to reject a Democratic debt-ceiling plan, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi didn’t mince words.
Pelosi pulled out a Star Wars reference on the House floor, saying that Speaker John Boehner “chose to go to the dark side” and court the most conservative members of his conference, rather than work on a bipartisan compromise.
“It’s time for us to end this theater of the absurd,” she said. “It’s time for us to get real.”
