Cruz Will Use 'Any Procedural Means Necessary’ to Force Vote on Defunding Obamacare

Posted March 12, 2013

(CNSNews.com) - When the U.S. Senate this week takes up the continuing resolution to fund the federal government for the remainder of fiscal year 2013, Sen. Ted Cruz (R.-Texas) will offer an amendment that will prohibit funding for the implementation of Obamacare during that period.

“I believe we will have a vote on this amendment and I have said I am willing to employ any procedural means necessary to ensure that we do get a vote on the amendment,” Cruz told reporters today.

How To Rescue The Republicans From The Grave Karl Rove Is Digging For Them

Posted March 12, 2013

Is the GOP going the way of the Whigs?   And, if so, can a new enthusiastic determination to defend our Constitutional rights save it?

Jeffrey Bell, policy director for the American Principles Project (which this columnist professionally advises), presents a compellingly grim scenario in a recent column, entitled Losing Streak: The Democratic Ascendency and Why It Happened, in The Weekly Standard.

Bell was one of the key intellectual architects of the Reagan-era Republican ascendancy. On top of his important work for Reagan and his own U.S. Senate race, Bell’s greatest impact may have been that of his role as one of Jack Kemp’s privy-counselors.  Economic policy, thanks to Kemp and his inner circle of supply siders, would never be the same.   Over a billion people came out of abject poverty thanks to the changed economic discussion, and Kemp, Bell and others played a big role in changing it.

Obamacare: Seven Feet of Job-Killing Regulations

Posted March 12, 2013

Senate Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell sent out a shocking photo showing what it looks like if you stack every page of Obamacare regulations one on top of the other. The stack reaches to more than seven feet in height and is so big it might take a 3-D printer to print it all.

"This is over 20,000 pages and measures 7' 2.5"," McConnell said of the amazing photo. "These are all the Obamacare regulations published in the Federal Register up through last week. Then last Friday they added another 828 pages."

These additions seemingly come on a monthly basis as Congress finally starts finding out, as Rep. Pelosi said, "what's in the bill" and more rules are added, clarified, and altered.

Judge Smacks Down Bloomberg's 'Capricious' Soda Cup Ban

Posted March 12, 2013

A New York state judge on Monday permanently restrained Mayor Michael Bloomberg from banning the sale of sugary drinks larger than 16 oz. from various restaurants, mobile food carts, and other establishments, ruling the law was "arbitrary and capricious." 

According to the Wall Street Journal, New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling ruled the city is "enjoined and permanently restrained from implementing or enforcing the new regulations" because they are "fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences."

Dhs Armored Vehicle

What’s up with the build-up in DHS firepower?

Posted March 11, 2013 - Lee Cary

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is growing its firepower capability to respond to widespread disorder within America.

Until someone leaks a memo that reveals why, the public is wondering what’s up with the ramp-up.

Go stand in a line outside a large sporting goods store that sells ammo an hour before it opens and ask those in line – mostly men, but a few women – why they’re there.  A variety of explanations surface:

The federal government is moving toward gun control by first limiting citizen access to ammo.

The feds plan to disarm the citizenry and is limiting ammo to decrease the severity of any armed resistance to that move.

Some expect that, someday, only criminals will be armed, and law-abiding citizens will be left defenseless when their families and property are threatened.

UPDATE: Number Of U.S. Gun Makers Refusing Sales To Gov't In 'Firearms Equality Movement' Triples In Two Weeks

Posted March 11, 2013

On February 22, "Right Views" reported that a growing number of firearm companies have suspended the sale of guns to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens' rights to own them.

In just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the "Firearms Equality Movement," has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118.

The Police Loophole lists every company and links to the statements that each has released regarding their new policies.
Wilson Combat, a custom pistol manufacturer located in Berryville, Arkansas, joined the movement on February 28 stating the following:

"Wilson Combat will no longer provide any products or services to any State Government imposing legislation that infringes on the second amendment rights of its law abiding citizens. This includes any Law Enforcement Department, Law Enforcement Officers, or any State Government Entity or Employee of such an entity. This also applies to any local municipality imposing such infringements."

Obama Opens Borders to Terrorists to Punish Americans Over Sequester

Posted March 11, 2013

The sequester was President Obama’s idea back in 2011 to begin with.  He thought it was an effective extortion tool to force Republicans to do things his way, because he was not willing to compromise on anything.  But it backfired and the Republicans for once stood their ground and called the president’s bluff.

Like all bullies, Obama is blaming the Republicans for his sequester and he is doing his best to make it hurt the public as much as possible so that they will blame the GOP.  An email that was leaked by a Department of Agriculture field officer indicated that the Obama administration had given instructions to make the sequestration cuts hurt Americans as much as possible.

Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AR) commented on the leaked email, saying:

“This email confirms what many Americans have suspected: The Obama administration is doing everything they can to make sure their worst predictions come true and to maximize the pain of the sequester cuts for political gain.”

“You can’t do anything that is inconsistent with the negative impact that we’ve told everybody these cuts are going to have.”

Former Newark Airport TSA screener says the job does little to keep fliers safe

Posted March 11, 2013

It is perhaps America’s most unsafe airport. Despite being the launching point for one of the planes hijacked on 9/11 — Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania — Newark Airport has had numerous security violations since. The latest: a fake bomb that made it past Transportation Security Administration officers. Here, a Newark TSA screener who recently left the agency tells how silly policies and lazy workers do little to stop real threats:

A LOT of what we do is make-believe.

I’ve had to screen small children and explain to their parents I had no choice but to “check” them. I would only place my hands on their arms and bottom half of their legs, and the entire “pat-down” lasted 10 seconds. This goes completely against TSA procedure.

Because the cameras are recording our every move, we have to do something. If someone isn’t checked or even screened properly, the entire terminal would shut down, as this constitutes a security breach.
But since most TSA supervisors are too daft to actually supervise, bending the rules is easy to do.

Did you know you don’t need a high-school diploma or GED to work as a security screener? These are the same screeners that TSA chief John Pistole and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refer to as a first-class first line of defense in the war on terror.

These are the employees who could never keep a job in the private sector. I wouldn’t trust them to walk my dog.

An agent got through Newark last week with an improvised explosive device? That’s not even news to anyone who works there. It happens all the time. The failure rate is pretty high, especially with federal investigators, and the pat-down itself is ridiculous. As invasive as it is, you still can’t find anything using the back of your hand on certain areas.

Defunding Obamacare

Posted March 12, 2013

This week, Sen. Cruz will push for a vote on his amendment to defund Obamacare.

The effort to stop Obamacare is one of the most critical challenges of our time. Even before being fully implemented, Obamacare is already hurting small business, reducing hours Americans are able to work, forcing employers to drop coverage, and leading to substantial increases in healthcare premiums—especially for young people. If fully implemented, Obamacare will create an even further drag on the economy, killing more jobs and stifling opportunity.

Our economy desperately needs robust economic growth and as long as Obamacare is on the books, it will stand in the way of job creation and prosperity. The longer Obamacare is on the books, the more damage it will do.

That's why Sen. Cruz has introduced legislation to repeal Obamacare and an amendment to defund it.


REP. MATT KRAUSE FILES BILL TO CLOSE JUDICIAL BYPASS LOOPHOLES THAT ALLOW MINORS TO HAVE
AN ABORTION WITHOUT ANY PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT

Posted March 12, 2013

AUSTIN, TEXAS - Last Friday, Rep. Matt Krause filed H.B. 3302, which would close loopholes in our
current judicial bypass system that has enabled many minors to have an abortion without any parental
involvement.

"No major medical decision of a minor child should be made without the involvement and guidance of a
parent or guardian," said Rep. Matt Krause. "Besides the need for love and support during such an
emotionally difficult time, minors are ill-equipped to undertake a life-changing procedure alone--they
typically do not know the full extent of their medical history, allergies, and without their parents'
involvement there is no one available in the advent of a medical emergency following the abortion."

Filibuster

Posted March 12, 2013

Last week, in a widely publicized hearing, Sen. Cruz pressed Attorney General Eric Holder about the Administration’s policy on the use of drones. Holder finally conceded that it is unconstitutional to kill a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil who does not pose an imminent threat. You can watch and share the full video of Sen. Cruz’s remarks during the hearing here.

Also, Sen. Cruz played a leading role supporting Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) who took to the Senate floor on Wednesday for an incredible 13 hours to filibuster the nomination of John Brennan to Director of the CIA over the administration’s drone policy.

If you’d like to watch video of Sen. Cruz’s participation in the filibuster they are all available here.


CSCOPE: Exposing the Nation’s Most Controversial Public School Curriculum System

Posted March 11, 2013

In February, Texas announced that the state, along with the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum (TESCCC,) would enact major changes to the controversial curriculum management system dubbed CSCOPE. The system received a litany of complaints from faculty members and parents alike concerning its lack of transparency (parents were allegedly not permitted to review lesson-plans), lack of oversight from the State Board of Education, and for allegedly imposing oppressive working conditions for faculty members.

CSCOPE was created so that teachers could frame their year around teaching points required by the state. Lessons, which are written by CSCOPE staff and current and former teachers, can be updated and delivered online, making it more cost-effective than standard textbooks.

To note just how off-color some of the CSCOPE curriculum is, consider that the Texas CSCOPE Review, an independent watchdog group, uncovered an out-of-date, optional CSCOPE lesson-plan on terrorism — “World History Unit 12 Lesson 07″ — which allegedly likens the Boston Tea Party to “an act of terrorism.”
