Gamescom: Shoot Racist Tea Partiers in ‘Battlefield Hardline’

In the upcoming first-person shooter Battlefield Hardline, players will shoot and kill racist anti-government Tea Party types, Gadsden flag and all.

Gamers got their first look at Battlefield Hardline’s singleplayer campaign, from developer Visceral Games and publisher Electronic Arts, at the Gamescom gaming convention in Cologne, Germany, on Wednesday, but the reveal included an unexpected partisan shot across the bow of conservative gamers. The Battlefield series, created by Swedish development studio DICE, has been largely apolitical since its first installment was released in 2002, but that appears to have changed with Visceral Games taking the lead on the latest release.

AFP's National Day of Action

RSVP to phone bank with other activists on Saturday, September 6th!

President Obama and his allies in Congress are trying to force more costly, unnecessary EPA regulations on American families. These regulations will lead to: higher energy bills, stifle economic growth, and destroy hundreds of thousands of US jobs. Many Americans are already struggling to make ends meet, and the President's big-government policies are only going to make things worse.

Chris McDaniel: I Beat Thad Cochran by 25,000 Votes

Six weeks after the primary runoff election, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is launching his formal legal challenge of the election results, saying the evidence is so conclusive that he will be calling for courts to recognize him as the true victor of the race rather than calling for a new election.

“Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling. We determined that of the Democrats that did cross over, 71 percent of them admitted they will not support the Republican in the general election. When you take those polling numbers and you go in and do the mathematical regressions, you can see that Chris McDaniel clearly won the runoff by 25,000 votes.”

“The short answer is we’re not asking for a new election,” Tyner continued. “We’re simply asking that the Republican Party recognize the person who won the runoff election.”

Eric Holder: I'm an Activist Attorney General and Proud of It

In an interview with Juan Williams, Attorney General Eric Holder said he is, indeed, an activist attorney general and proud of it.

"If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly accept that label," said Holder. "Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job. The responsibility of the attorney general is to change things [and] bring us closer to the ideals expressed in our founding documents."

Holder added that those who claim he runs an "activist civil rights division" and that he is "an activist attorney general--I'd say I agree with you 1000 percent and [I am] proud of it."

New TABC Rule will affect Gun Shows

Public Meeting Scheduled for Tuesday August 19th at 1:30 PM in Austin, Texas.

Many of us Texans have long enjoyed the ability to visit and conduct business at local gun shows. Today this tradition is at risk.

This week I learned that the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) is planning to amend rule 36.1 in a way that will seriously affect Texas Gun Shows. If the rule is adopted as written, gun shows will no longer be able to sell ammunition, display any guns that are not disabled and non-functional, and deliver purchased guns on the premises of the venue.  In effect, no right minded vendor would bother to participate.

This new rule would affect any venue that is licensed by the TABC to sell alcoholic beverages and would be in effect even if NO alcoholic beverages are permitted to be sold during the gun show.

I have spoken with representatives of TABC. The rule will be published in the August 8, 2014 issue of the Texas Register. This will open a 30 day period of public comment.

There will be an opportunity for oral comments at a Public Hearing to be conducted by the staff of the Commission on Tuesday, August 19, 2014, beginning at 1:30 p.m. The Public Hearing will be held at the first-floor Commission Room in the Commission’s headquarters, which is located at 5806 Mesa Drive in Austin.

I strongly encourage all patriots and supporters of the 2nd Amendment to make your feelings known. Remember the immortal words of Thomas Jefferson, “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance”. It seems these days that has never been more true!

Jim Richardson
Chairman, Williamson County Firearm Enthusiasts Club

DHS: ‘Family Unit’ Apprehensions Up 493% on U.S.-Mexico Border

(CNSNews.com) – Statistics posted online by the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Customs and Border Protection (CBP) show that the number of “family units” apprehended at the U.S. border with Mexico has risen from 9,350 in 2013 to 55,420 in 2014 – an increase of 493 percent.

A spokesperson for the CBP told CNSNews.com that a “family unit” for the purposes of this set of statistics is “a parent traveling with a child,” and that the 55,420 total includes all adults and children who have been apprehended and categorized as a family unit.

The family unit statistics – posted in the same document that provides the number of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) crossing the border – show that the family units come from four countries: El Salvador (10,417), Guatemala (9,004), Honduras (30,368) and Mexico (4,545).

Ralph Hall Makes History…Will Texans Take Notice?

by

Perhaps one of the biggest upsets in May’s runoff’s elections was Rep. Ralph Hall’s loss to his Republican primary challenger, and former U.S. Attorney, John Ratcliffe.   Most news headlines note that Hall is the oldest sitting U.S. House member and the oldest House member in history to both serve and cast a vote.

He’s also one of extraordinarily long tenure as a public official, serving a total of 56 years.

But this race was of much greater significance to those who understand the structural political challenge Texans face at every level; entrenched incumbents protected by the party elite.

Since Texas became a state, Hall’s loss marked the first election in which a sitting Republican U.S. Representative from Texas failed to obtain his party’s re-nomination.

Stated differently, never has a sitting House member in Texas been defeated in the Republican primary by a challenger!

Lack of Competition Enabled “Re-purp-licans”

by

Both the March Republican primaries and May’s runoff elections hosted a wave of victories for conservatives, with a handful of traditionally strong incumbents losing bids for their own re-election, or for higher positions.

Michael Quinn Sullivan cited the unprecedented number of statewide officials that won’t be returning; Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, Railroad Commissioner Barry Smitherman and Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples.

In contested House seats, this cycle has seen huge gains for conservatives. Nothing was lost, and ground has been gained.

The run-offs gave Texans another legislative victory in Senate District 2.  Grassroots-leader-turned-citizen-candidate, Bob Hall, defeated liberal leaning Republican incumbent, Bob Deuell. (This race marked the second TFR challenger to defeat an incumbent senator this cycle; the third in two years!)
