Texas predator accused asking mother to buy 14-year-old: ‘I want her, what do you want for it?’



A Texas man was arrested this week for trying to “buy” a 14-year-old girl, CBS46 reports.

Ricky James Overhulser, 53, of Lubbock, is accused of pulling his car up alongside the girl at a gas station and ordering her into his car. The girl’s mother was inside the 7-11 store, paying for gas.

Overhulser told her twice to get into his car and asked her if she “dated,” CBS46 reports. She said “no” and went inside to get her mother.


Overhulser drove away, but then returned. CBS46 reports he asked the mother, “how much for your daughter,” and said, “I want her, what do you want for it?”

The woman called him a “dirty old man” and informed him she was calling police.

By the time authorities found him, Overhulser was in jail on other charges. Police added new charges relating to his attempted kidnapping of the girl.

Overhulser is a registered sex offender and spent 10 years in jail for sex crimes involving a 16-year-old girl.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing



"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

2020 Election

Maddow warns Russia is interfering in the 2020 election in ‘exactly the same way’ as they did in 2016



MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Monday warned that Russia and the Republicans are running the "exact same play" against Democrats in 2020 -- and this time will be aided by the United States Justice Department.

"And they are playing it again already for the next election. And some of it is happening just like it did in 2016. And some of it is worse and I think it’s going to be more powerful than it was in 2016. In part because this is a second draft for these guys, right? They ran this play in 2016. They worked out some of the kinks," she explained. "Now they’ll do it again with the benefit of knowing what worked for them and what didn’t work the first time around. It’s a second draft. It’s going to be better and more polished."

Ex-Defense Secretary lays into Trump’s Syria pullout: He ‘plays into’ authoritarians’ hands to ‘weaken the United States’



On Monday's edition of CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta blasted President Donald Trump over his foreign policy — particularly his withdrawal from Syria.

"Secretary Panetta, just generally what do you make of how this whole withdrawal, non-withdrawal is being handled by the White House?" asked Cooper. "We're seeing the administration trying to walk back a broad policy announcement from the president."

"I think from the very beginning this has been a — probably the most disastrous foreign policy blunder in recent history," said Panetta. "And there is no way when you commit a blunder like this that involves the consequences we're now seeing, there's no way to paint this picture as if somehow everything's going well."
