Federal Deficit Debt

Rebooting the Tea Party

Posted April 8, 2013

By Lee Cary

“The surest way to destroy a nation is to debauch its currency.”Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

I recently suggested that the Tea Party should engage the same-sex marriage debate. That idea met with opposition.  The basis of it was that the Tea Party’s mission is not to address social issues but to, as one commenter stated, advocate “1) reduction in the size of government, 2) reduction and simplification of taxes (if not all-out tax code change like FairTax or the Flat Tax) and 3) reduction in spending by government.”

Point made. Now, moving on…  

The Tea Party movement, according to one Texas Tea Party activist speaking last August, morphed after the 2010 election as, “We put down our protest signs, and picked up campaign signs.” Those campaign signs meant to influence the election of local-level candidates who share Tea Party principles.

So, the energy of the movement shifted away from the federal government’s fiscal crisis to a local effort to advance Tea Party principles at the state and local level.  

Unfortunately, the federal budget falls largely outside the purview of local- and state-level government officials. A Texas State Representative, while advancing the cause of sound fiscal policies at the state level, does not typically have the ear of Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, or John Boehner. Plus, a State Representative has no vote in the U.S. Congress.

So what has become of the Tea Party’s attempt to influence spending at the federal level?  Has it been abandoned?  If not, where and how is it being pursued today?

McCain: 'I Don't Understand' Filibustering Gun Control

Posted April 8, 2013

Sen. John McCain (R-Sunday Shows) expressed bewilderment on CBS' "Face the Nation" that GOP Sens. Cruz, Lee and Paul would filibuster gun control legislation. “I don’t understand it,” McCain said. “The purpose of the United States Senate is to debate and to vote and to let the people know where we stand.” With all due respect to Sen. McCain, that is almost completely backward. 

The purpose of the US Senate is not to be some federal debating society. It is not tasked with taking the great issues of the day and giving its "august" members a platform for their musings on policy. The public does not look to the Senate for guidance in its deliberations on the issues.

The Senate's first, and only, task is to uphold the Constitution.

Congress returns to try to reach final deals on major issues of immigration, gun control

Posted April 8, 2013

Congress returns Monday for a pivotal week in which lawmakers will attempt to reach agreements on proposals for gun-control and immigration-reform -- perhaps the two biggest issues in Washington this year.

Though the Senate has been working on both issues only since the new Congress began in January, Washington lawmakers have tried for years to draft comprehensive immigration reform, while the issue of gun-control was thrust upon them after 20 first-graders were killed in a December 2012 mass shooting.

A contentious public debate over the country’s flawed immigration system is expected as a bipartisan group of eight senators finalizes a bill to secure U.S. borders, allow tens of thousands of foreign workers into the country and grant eventual citizenship to the estimated 11 million people living here illegally.

Bloomberg Rich Pansy Ass

WH: GOP Must Stop 'My Way or the Highway' Budget Negotiations

Posted April 8, 2013

Projecting madly, the White House on Sunday pushed the notion that Republican intransigence is the reason that Democrats have been unable to pass a budget during President Obama’s tenure. “Right now,” said senior White House advisor Dan Pfeiffer on Fox News Sunday, “the approach of many Republicans, particularly the leadership in the House, is my way or the highway.”

Nonetheless, the usual Republicans in the Senate expressed optimism over Obama’s new budget. “The president is showing a little bit of leg here,” said predictably conciliatory Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on NBC’s Meet the Press. “This is somewhat encouraging. We’re beginning to set the stage for the grand bargain.”

Obama's Political Action Group Loses Lawsuit Against Website Address Owner

Posted April 8, 2013

Last year, President Obama's re-election campaign reworked its operations renaming it Organizing for Action in an effort to leverage the President's monumental email address list to urge supporters to back the President's policies. But OFA made a tiny mistake: it didn't register all the various website addresses for its new effort. Worse, when others jumped to register the names, Obama's political group filed a complaint to get the web addresses back. Now Obama has lost that battle.

Obama Pushes to Give Home Loans to Lower Credit Borrowers

Posted April 5, 2013

The Obama Administration is angling to allow people with questionable credit to receive home loans, encouraging lenders to use more subjective judgment, and pushing banks to utilize programs through the Federal Housing Administration (FHA)--an executive branch agency that sticks taxpayers with the bill if borrowers default on their FHA home loan.

FHA Commissioner Carol Galante says people with lower credit scores should be allowed to borrow. “My view is that there are lots of creditworthy borrowers that are  below 720 and 700—all the way down the credit-score spectrum.  It’s important you look at the totality of that borrower’s ability to pay,” said Galante.

But former Fannie Mae executive and American Enterprise Institute fellow Ed Pinto says such a move would be a mistake. “If that were to come to pass, that would open the floodgates to highly excessive risk and would send us right back on the same path we were just trying to recover from,” said Pinto.”

The Great DHS Ammunition Stockpile Myth

Posted April 5, 2013

There are dozens of articles hyping government purchases of ammunition over the last nine months. After spending weeks researching this topic, this is a collection of commonly held myths that are based more on panic than fact. 

With the recent release of a letter from the Department of Homeland Security to Senator Coburn, the numbers we calculated independently seem to corroborate the narrative coming from DHS. The concerns surrounding DHS stockpiling ammunition are nothing but more fear-mongering and largely unwarranted. For once, here are the facts to set the record straight:

MYTH: DHS purchased 750 million rounds of several different types of ammunition in August 2012.

FACT: The DHS contract never stated 750 million rounds at any time. It is a five year contract with a maximum purchase of 70 million rounds over the life of the contract. Military Times recently addressed this issue as well.

Lumberton, TX Woman with Gun Shoots Robber/Rapist Terrorizing Lumberton Residents

Posted April 8, 2013

A woman in Lumberton, TX shot and stopped a robber this morning before sunrise. This was not just Around 3AM this morning, this group of armed robbers sexually assaulted and robbed at gun point a woman in Lumberton. After the robbery and sexual assault this morning (at the corner of Raider Lane and Village Creek Parkway near the middle and primary schools), the group of 3 black males from Beaumont tried to attack another woman at her home on Dennis Drive in Lumberton. This time though, the woman was exercising her 2nd Amendment rights and she pulled out her handgun and shot one of the criminals. All three men were quickly apprehended soon after by the Lumberton Police Department. The man shot, Scott Allen Wills Jr, is still in the hospital but is expected to recover. As I write the article, the Hardin County Jail says they have not booked the other two men, Malik Washington and Ariel Malveaux, so they are still in the custody of the Lumberton Police Department.

With the legislative session half over, we regret to inform our fellow Texans that the Texas State Legislature continues to be the place where solid, fiscally-responsible ideas go to die and awful ideas thrive like bad weeds.

Thankfully, vigilant watchdog groups have been keeping a close eye on the State Legislature and providing us with updates on our elected servants' malfeasance.

We've posted a digest of the most recent reports from Empower Texans on our blog.  In these updates:

Sen. Ted Cruz Talks with Ben Ferguson about Defending the Second Amendment

Greg Abbott on the UN Arms Treaty

Posted April 4, 2013

Your Liberty -- as a United States citizen -- was weakened and threatened yesterday when the Obama Administration helped the United Nations pass the Arms Trade Treaty. Immediately after this disappointing vote, I wrote a letter to President Obama urging him not to sign the treaty.
 
If the President signs the treaty allowing the UN to be involved in regulating firearms in the U.S., Texas will lead the charge to have the treaty overturned in court as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

I need your support. Please help us get the word out by referring 3 of your friends right now , and forwarding this email to 5 of your friends . Together, we can make a difference.
America is exceptional in part because our Constitution safeguards our individual liberties – including the right to keep and bear arms enshrined in the Second Amendment.

The new UN treaty threatens your rights:

  • it doesn't recognize the individual right to keep and bear arms or the fundamental right to defend yourself, your family, or your property;
  • it empowers a new UN bureaucracy focused on firearms restrictions that will be run by international bureaucrats who are not accountable to the people of the United States.
  • it could impose firearm registration requirements that may empower international authorities to get information about American citizens and businesses.

This UN treaty does more than trample Second Amendment rights. It also threatens to erode all liberties guaranteed to Americans in the Constitution by giving the UN power to govern our lives.
Please refer 3 of your friends today and forward this important message to 5 of your friends right now . Your voice must be heard on this issue.
When the Constitution says, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” it means no one—including the UN—can infringe upon that right.
UN treaties do not trump the Constitution.  And with your help, we will make that message clear to President Obama and this administration.


Want to See What CSCOPE and Common Core (Even Homeschooling) Lessons Look Like? These Parents Opened Up to TheBlaze

Posted April 3, 2013

As a greater level of scrutiny is being placed on the controversial curriculum systems CSCOPE (in Texas) and Common Core Standards (nationwide), concerned parents spoke to TheBlaze about their troubling experiences, revealing that not even home-schooling is beyond the reach of these encroaching systems.

Home-schooling not beyond the reach of Common Core?  

Keven Card, a former Marine from Houston who has home-schooled his children for the last six years, thought his family was safe from the reach of Common Core, but soon learned otherwise. As noted on his blog, two years ago Pearson Education, which is linked to Common Core, acquired Texas Connections Academy, the online charter school Card uses to homeschool his ninth-grader.

One lesson plan featured a video dubbed, ”China Rises,” that appears to tout the virtues of Communism over capitalism.
