Obama has put a gag on the Benghazi survivors...

What is he hiding?

Posted March 2, 2013

Our greatest hope for learning about what really happened during the terrorist attack in Benghazi is obtaining first-hand accounts from the survivors of that horrible night.

Unfortunately, Barack Obama and his Administration are doing everything in their power through bureaucratic red tape, restrictive federal law, and the cloak of an “ongoing investigation” to gag these Americans, thus preventing the truth from coming to light.

And, at the same time, as President Obama pretends to support wider protection for whistleblowers, he has in fact prosecuted more federal employees for leaking information to the public under the Espionage Act than all previous administrations COMBINED.

Obama and his cronies continue to gag and hide
the Benghazi survivors.

AP Exclusive: DHS released over 2,000 immigrants

Posted March 2, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Homeland Security Department released from its jails more than 2,000 illegal immigrants facing deportation in recent weeks due to looming budget cuts and planned to release 3,000 more during March, The Associated Press has learned.

The newly disclosed figures, cited in internal budget documents reviewed by the AP, are significantly higher than the "few hundred" illegal immigrants the Obama administration acknowledged this week had been released under the budget-savings process.

The government documents show that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement released roughly 1,000 illegal immigrants from its jails around the U.S. each week since at least Feb. 15. The agency's field offices have reported more than 2,000 immigrants released before intense criticism this week led to a temporary shutdown of the plan, according to the documents.

Obama 'taking page out Castro playbook'

Lawmaker: President freed illegals because he didn't win sequestration fight

Posted March 2, 2013

The Obama White House firmly denies any involvement in the release of hundreds of detained illegal aliens, but U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., told WND that’s preposterous and the move was done to inflict punishment for Obama not getting his way on sequestration.

According to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, the decision to release several hundred allegedly “low-risk” illegals was made entirely by officials at Immigration and Customs Enforcement and was done because of looming budget cuts related to the sequestration spending cuts.

Does Gosar believe that story?

“Absolutely not,” he said. “This just shows the pattern of do-and-deny that this administration does over and over again. We saw it in ‘Fast & Furious.’ We also saw it in the horrific acts of Benghazi. So here’s No. 3. Three’s a charm. We need to wake up and understand how this administration rolls.”

Cigarette tax jumps up $1 a pack in Chicago

Posted March 2, 2013

CHICAGO   •  Taxes on cigarettes sold in Cook County are going up by one dollar a pack.
Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle says the tax, which takes effect Friday, is expected to generate more than $25 million annually for the Cook County Health and Hospitals System.
She says higher taxes also will help lower smoking rates, including by discouraging people from starting.

The price of a pack of cigarettes could be near $11 in Chicago, $6.67 of which is city, county and state taxes. Only New  York City -- at $6.86 in taxes -- slaps on higher taxes.

Obama Sequester

The President Who Cried Wolf

Posted March 1, 2013 - by George Rodriguez

While President Obama is lobbying the public to stop the Sequestration, he forgets that it is his law. It was passed by Congress and he signed it in 2011 at the height of the “raising the debt limit” debates.

Sequestration was Obama’s idea and recommendation because he was not willing to honor any of the “reduced spending” recommendations from Simpson-Bowles committee. He convinced certain Republican House members to raise the debt ceiling in exchange for more time to debate on how to reduce spending and what should be cut.

However, in this law there are specific items like a $500 billion reduction in the Defense Department budget which is a “Republican sacred budget cow” in addition to others. Apparently, Obama felt safe that the Sequester would never happen and he played political “chicken” with House Republicans.

Since 2011, Obama has continued to show his bad faith by not proposing meaningful spending cuts, and we have had one legislative crisis after another including “the fiscal cliff” drama last December. In the meantime, some GOP House members have caved to Obama by raising taxes and getting very little in spending cuts, by agreeing to avoid the Fiscal cliff, and by deferring to March 1st 2013 the issue of Sequestration.

NOW Obama is again playing “chicken” and he does not want to reduce spending unless House Republicans raise taxes or eliminate more deductions on the “rich” which will ultimately affect the middle class.

Tea Party Special Forces

Posted March 1, 2013


Collapse of the Dollar

Collapse of the Dollar – Only one “party” can speak the truth

Lee Cary 02-28-2013

The Tea Party is the only political movement in America that can tell the truth about the coming end of the US dollar’s (USD) role as the world’s reserve currency.

Will it? And if so, how will it?

Both Democrat and Republican Party leaders know the truth, but, to date, neither has leveled with the American people; nor offered an explanation of the transition underway; nor reviewed the known and unknown consequences.

For their part, the media, across the ideological spectrum, runs from one fiscal puppet show to another, choreographed by the Obama regime, featuring the budget crisis du mois. It’s an odd drama since we have no federal budget these days beyond Continuing Resolutions (CR’s).

All the while, the irreversible path to the USD’s demise as the world’s reserve currency advances, with increasing speed.

2014 Midterm Surprise

Is the Tea Party alert to a midterm Democrat surprise?

Lee Cary 02-27-2013

Will the Tea Party be ready to respond to an unexpected Democrat challenge to the G.O.P.’s hopes of keeping the House?

On the G.O.P. side, between today and the 2014 elections, what’s likely to change?

Will John Boehner be replaced by a new Speaker? Say, Paul Ryan? There’s nothing now to suggest that’ll happen.

If G.O.P. fund-raising efforts are tepid moving toward ‘14, that could increase the pressure for a new House Speaker, but the decibel level of any talk of that happening is inaudible.

By ’14, will a new Republican Party leader emerge from the Senate, or a Governor’s Mansion, and become the leading challenger for the Presidency?

That’s unlikely.  For one thing, it could cause that candidate to peak too soon and, by the ‘16 election, become old news, having been beat up by the liberal media.  And Americans, many with the attention span of hummingbirds, don’t like old news and bruised candidates. Particularly Republicans.

Gohmert’s Statement on President Obama’s Sequester Press Conference

Posted March 2, 3013

Washington -  Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement today concerning President Obama’s press conference on the sequester and funding cuts:

“Every single hardworking American taxpayer had a 2% tax increase on January 1st with the payroll tax increase President Obama wanted. Now, the Obama administration is screaming gloom and doom for basically having the same amount of reduction in available spending money because of the sequester. But, it is incredible that the President is acting so indignant when we know and he stated numerous times that the sequester was his idea. Jay Carney has now acknowledged that. Every report of the President’s speech today should include a transcript of the interview he did with the Des Moines register last October, the day after his Iowa debate:

‘[T]he good news is that there's going to be a forcing mechanism to deal with what is the central ideological argument in Washington right now, and that is: How much government do we have and how do we pay for it? So when you combine the Bush tax cuts expiring, the sequester in place ... we're going to be in a position where I believe in the first six months we are going to solve that big piece of business. It will probably be messy. It won't be pleasant. But I am absolutely confident that we can get what is the equivalent of the grand bargain. (October 23, 2012, in Des Moines, Iowa)

It is clear by President Obama’s own previous words in different settings that he not only wanted the sequester cuts to go through, he also expected that the Bush tax rates would end and everyone’s taxes would go up. For him to now criticize the very ideas he came up with, he supported, and he originally wanted to occur is grossly inappropriate. The 2% cuts are actually a reduction in the automatically increased spending rather than a real cut and slows the Obama growth in government from 20% to 18%. He refused to sit down with Congress to work an agreement until he finished his expensive nationwide fear tour condemning Congress for not working with him, until the day after the cuts were reality.

Now, his administration has released arrested criminal suspects, is threatening to furlough or cut law enforcement, not protect our border, leave our military in harm’s way without adequate support, cut out vaccinations to children, fire teachers they do not even hire, and now pull FAA personnel from 168 airports –all to punish the country. We have never had an American administration intentionally try to do this much damage to American lives as part of a tantrum demanding more money for government. This is a very serious and sad time for America.”

Rotten to the Core, Part III: Lessons from Texas and the Growing Grassroots Revolt

Posted March 1, 2013

Texas is a right-minded red state, where patriotism is still a virtue and political correctness is out of vogue. So how on earth have left-wing educators in public classrooms been allowed to instruct Lone Star students to dress in Islamic garb, call the 9/11 jihadists "freedom fighters" and treat the Boston Tea Party participants as "terrorists"?

Here's the dirty little secret: Despite the best efforts of vigilant parents, teachers and administrators committed to academic excellence, progressive activists reign supreme in government schools.

That's because curriculum is king. The liberal monopoly on the modern textbook/curricular market remains unchallenged after a half-century. He who controls the textbooks, teaching guides and tests controls the academic agenda.

That is how the propagandistic outfitting of students in Islamic garb came to pass in the unlikely setting of the conservative Lumberton, Texas, school district. As Fox News reporter Todd Starnes noted this week, a 32-year veteran of the high school led a world geography lesson on Islam in which hijab-wrapped students were banned from using the words "suicide bomber" and "terrorist" to describe Muslim mass murderers in favor of the term "freedom fighter."

Madelyn LeBlanc, one of the students in the class, "told Fox News that it was clear her teacher was very uncomfortable lecturing the students. 'I do have a lot of sympathy for her. ... At the very beginning, she said she didn't want to teach it, but it was in the curriculum.'"

American Student Punished for Refusing to Recite Mexican Pledge

Posted March 1, 2013

A Texas high school student has filed a federal lawsuit against her school and her teachers after she was punished for refusing to salute and recite the Mexican pledge of allegiance.

The Thomas More Law Center filed the suit on behalf of Brenda Brinsdon alleging the McAllen Independent School District violated the 15-year-old girl’s constitutional rights when she was forced to recite the Mexican pledge and sing the Mexican national anthem.

Click here to read the lawsuit.

Brinsdon, who is the daughter of a Mexican immigrant and an American father, refused. She believed it was un-American to pledge a loyalty oath to another country.

Ironically, the school district has a policy that prohibits a school from compelling students to recite the American Pledge of Allegiance.

The district also has a written policy that excuses students from reciting text from the Declaration of Independence if the student “as determined by the district, has a conscientious objection to the recitation.”

REP. MATT KRAUSE FILES BILL TO CREATE FISCAL RISK MANAGEMENT COMMISSION

Posted February 28, 2013

AUSTIN, TEXAS - Today, Rep. Matt Krause filed H.B. 1930, which creates the Fiscal Risk Management Commission (FRMC). This commission would be comprised of elected officials and members of the public and be tasked with the assessment of, and planning for, a wide spectrum of potential economic threats to the state of Texas.

"Other states have already begun to take the initiative by studying and creating long-term contingency plans to protect their credit ratings, economies, and the delivery of fundamental government services," said Rep. Matt Krause. "With an unyielding $16 trillion debt, it is apparent that our federal government is fundamentally incapable of solving this crisis. If you look at the current uncertainty in D.C. with the
sequester, and before that the fiscal cliff, and before that the debt ceiling, it's clear Texas needs to step up and take a leadership role in our citizens' economic security."

The FRMC would study all possible economic threats to Texas, including:

1. Significant reduction or elimination of federal funds on delivery of critical services and the state budget;
2. Effect of political or market-led default on state economy;
3. Impact of devaluation of U.S. Dollar and loss of reserve currency status on Texas;
4. Advisability and practicability of developing a contingency currency for Texas;
5. Risks presented by acts of economic terrorism (i.e. energy embargo) on Texas;
6. Any other macroeconomic threat to Texas FRMC considers appropriate.

Three steps: How the Dems plan to make Texas a battleground state by 2016

Posted February 27, 2013

On Tuesday morning, the Democrats launched an independent group called Battleground Texas, which is capable of making the Lone Star state a battleground by 2016 and a lean-Democrat state by 2024, effectively breaking the back of the national GOP and blocking a Republican path to the White House.

Yes — that Texas: The state that has not elected a single statewide Democratic official in 10 years, with Republicans going 100-0; the state that has had an entirely Republican government since 2002, with current super majorities in the legislature; and the state that hasn't voted for a Democratic president since Jimmy Carter in 1976.

History aside, if neither party lifts a finger to change current trends, the demographic changes taking place in Texas will — by themselves — seal it as blue by around 2040. The Democrats, however, plan to lift more than a finger; and if they play their cards right, they could speed the process up by 25 years, putting Texas in play much sooner.
