NAVY SEAL TEAM VI FAMILIES TO REVEAL GOVERNMENT’S CULPABILITY IN DEATH OF THEIR SONS IN FATAL HELICOPTER CRASH IN AFGHANISTAN FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL RAID ON BIN LADEN’S COMPOUND

Posted May 8, 2013

(Washington, D.C.). Three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, will appear at a press conference on May 9, 2013, to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons along with 26 others died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011, just a few months after the successful raid on the compound of Osama Bin Laden that resulted in the master terrorist’s death.

Accompanying the families of these dead Navy SEAL Team VI special operations servicemen will be retired military experts verifying their accounts of how and why the government is as much responsible for the deaths of their sons as is the Taliban.

The areas of inquiry at the press conference will include but not be limited to:

 1. How President Obama and Vice President Biden, having disclosed on May 4, 2011, that Navy Seal Team Six carried out the successful raid on Bin Laden’s compound resulting in the master terrorist’s death, put a retaliatory target on the backs of the fallen heroes.

2. How and why high-level military officials sent these Navy SEAL Team VI heroes into battle without special operations aviation and proper air support.

Mother of Benghazi Victim Blames Hillary for Security Failures

Posted May 8, 2013

On CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper, Pat Smith, mother of slain State Department information officer Sean Smith, blamed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for failing to protect her son and other civilians in Benghazi, Libya, during the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the American consulate. “I blame her,” Smith said regarding Clinton. “That’s her department, she’s supposed to be on top of it, and yet she claims that she knows nothing, it wasn’t told to her. Who’s running the place?”

Morning Bell: Ghosts of Benghazi

Posted May 8, 2013

The White House might have wanted to mute its response to the terrorist attack in Benghazi for fear of inflaming Anti-American sentiment. Perhaps the President did not want to acknowledge a successful attack by an al-Qaeda affiliate on the anniversary of 9/11—right before a national election. Maybe it was just all “Keystone Kops” at the national command authority on the night four Americans were killed at their posts. It could be a bit of all three. The problem is, nine months later, we still don’t know for sure.

Dramatic hearings are expected today as Gregory Hicks, a State Department official who was on the ground in Libya during the 9/11 attack when four Americans died, talks to a House panel.

Some of his testimony from pre-hearing interviews with committee staff has already been released to the press. It includes claims that a Special Forces team that could have helped save lives and safeguard evidence and classified materials at the U.S. facility had been ordered to “stand down.” In addition, Hicks contends that from the outset, the ambassador’s team knew that they were under attack and reported that to Washington.

The hearing will be streamed live here beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET.

Mark Sanford Wins

Posted May 8, 2013

Mark Sanford has won the special election in South Carolina’s first congressional district.

He was abandoned by much of the South Carolina congressional delegation.

He was abandoned by the NRCC and its fundraising.
The Democrats outspent him by more than a 3 to 1 advantage.

But the district favored him to begin with. Despite panic a few weeks ago, he recovered rapidly and closed a ten point gap.
I was with Mark Sanford in the beginning despite unmitigated hell from lots of Republicans who were outraged by my supporting him. As I said then, he was the most risky candidate, but potentially the greatest reward in how he’d vote in Congress.

Honestly, in a nut shell, despite what you may hear in the media, there are still places in America that hate liberals and would rather a deeply flawed Mark Sanford than an elitist liberal.

Marco Rubio bashes Heritage amnesty study: 'The folks described in that report are my family'

Posted May 8, 2013

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Tuesday called the Heritage Foundation report on the steep price of immigration reform “flawed,” and said author Robert Rector utilized cost estimates that are “dubious at best” and which do not assess the full potential of illegal immigrants who would be provided with legal status or a pathway to citizenship.

Rubio also criticized the report’s assertion that many newly legalized immigrants would lack a high school diploma and thus require far more in benefits from the government than they provide in taxes over a 50-year period.

Rubio’s parents arrived in the United States from Cuba in 1956.

“The folks described in that report are my family,” Rubio said Tuesday. “My mother and dad didn’t graduate high school, and I would not say they were a burden on the United States. My parents were a lot better off 25 years after they immigrated here than they were when they first got here.”

UPDATE, 6:45 p.m.: Heritage issued a statement Tuesday defending its study, saying in part, "Sen. Rubio’s family story is a testament to the American Dream," but that the "modern welfare state" put in place years after the Rubios arrived is now "threatening the American Dream." Read the complete Heritage statement here.

Two 7-year-old boys suspended two days from elementary school for pointing pencils and making 'gun noises' while playing  Marine and 'bad guy'

Posted May 8, 2013

One elementary school has come under fire for a policy many are claiming is draconian.

Two 7-year-old boys from Driver Elementary in Suffolk County, Virginia were suspended two days after they were found pointing pencils at one another and making noises to resemble a machine gun.

One of the boys, Christopher Marshall, said he was just pretending to be a Marine like his father, but the school's 'zero-tolerance' policy on weapons still called for his punishment.

Diplomat: U.S. Special Forces told "you can't go" to Benghazi during attacks

Posted May 7, 2013

he deputy of slain U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens has told congressional investigators that a team of Special Forces prepared to fly from Tripoli to Benghazi during the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks was forbidden from doing so by U.S. Special Operations Command Africa.

The account from Gregory Hicks is in stark contrast to assertions from the Obama administration, which insisted that nobody was ever told to stand down and that all available resources were utilized. Hicks gave private testimony to congressional investigators last month in advance of his upcoming appearance at a congressional hearing Wednesday.

Huckabee: Obama will be ousted over Benghazi

Posted May 7, 2013

Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said on his radio show Monday that President Obama “will not fill out his full term” because he was complicit in a “cover-up” surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Libya.

“I believe that before it’s all over, this president will not fill out his full term,” Huckabee said. “I know that puts me on a limb, but this is not minor.”

“When a president lies to the American people and is part of a cover-up, he cannot continue to govern,” he added. “And as the facts come out, I think we’re going to see something startling. And before it’s over, I don’t think this president will finish his term unless somehow they can delay it in Congress past the next three and a half years.”

Justice Department to monitor South Carolina congressional election

Posted May 7, 2013

Former South Carolina Republican Governor Mark Sanford is facing Democratic newcomer Elizabeth Colbert Busch, sister of television political satirist Stephen Colbert, in the First District House race.

The Justice Department said in a statement it was monitoring the election under provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The law bars election discrimination on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group.

The department did not give a reason for the monitoring. Tuesday's vote will take place under South Carolina's new law mandating photo identification for voters, and Justice Department monitors observed primary elections.

Colorado’s new gun law drives four recall efforts

Posted May 7, 2013

As Colorado lawmakers entered the last frenzied 72 hours of the legislative session — 90 bills were still on the docket when the legislature was called to order Monday morning — four state politicians are facing efforts to recall them from office.

Recall drives are in full swing against Senate Democrats John Morse, Evie Hudak and Angela Giron as well as Democratic Rep. Mike McLachlan.

Citizens groups angry about these lawmakers’ stances on gun control are collecting signatures to try and force a special election. To make the ballot, they must collect a number of signatures equal to 25 percent of the total vote in their districts.

Court Kills Obamacare Lawsuit Against Bible Publisher

On Monday, the Obama administration requested dismissal of a suit the government had filed against Bible publisher Tyndale House Publishers, which refused to implement the Obamacare mandate to provide employees’ birth control.

“Bible publishers should be free to do business according to the book that they publish,” Senior Legal Counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom Matt Bowman told LifeSiteNews. “The government dismissed its appeal because it knows how ridiculous it sounds arguing that a Bible publisher isn’t religious enough to qualify as a religious employer.”

This marks the first wholesale legal loss for the Obama administration in its quest to force religious Americans to pay for services that violate their religious precepts.

Internet sales tax faces a tougher sell in the House after passing Senate

Posted May 7, 2013

Internet taxes? Not so fast.

A bill that would let states collect Internet sales taxes from online retailers and their customers may have sailed through the Senate, but it is expected to face much more resistance from tax-wary Republicans in the House.

Battleground Texas

Allen West Issues Warning: Texas Could Slip Away

Posted May 8, 2013 ~ Mark Stuertz

 Texas is in peril of slipping from red, to purple, to blue. So says former Army Lieutenant Colonel and U.S. Congressman Allen West (R-FLA). “Texas is on the target list right now,” said West, pointing to the Texas flag. “Once upon a time Colorado was a red state. But as people left California and went to Colorado, they slowly turned Colorado from red to purple and now its blue. If you don’t think it can happen here in Texas…”

West insisted that Texas officials should be extremely cautious when attempting to lure businesses and industries from California and other beleaguered blue states to Texas. Such refugees tend to bring their destructive politics and policy prescriptions with them, he said.

Exposed: Texas Cronyism and Secret Meetings Steal Citizen's Land Via Eminent Domain

Posted May 8, 2013

Breitbart News has learned of a broad-ranging, long-term property seizure scheme in Texas’ Tarrant County Regional Water District, in which District employees have abused eminent domain privileges, forced homeowners and businesses off their properties, and awarded no-bid contacts via secret meetings that are never reported to the public.

Background
The Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) was created in the 1920’s, originally designed with a mandate for water supply and flood control.  The TRWD owns three lakes, operates five others, and oversees flood control inside the political boundaries of the district, while providing water supply to the Northern Trinity River Water Basin, which stretches across eleven counties in North Texas.
In the last decade, the TRWD initiated a billion dollar “economic development” project called Trinity River Vision. It has allowed the TRWD to seize vast tracts of private and commercial properties and spend hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money – always awarded in no-bid contracts to the same local firms.

Reid: Cruz a 'Schoolyard Bully' for Opposing Taxes

Posted May 8, 2013

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), offended that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has not deferred to the establishment old guard, called Cruz a "schoolyard bully" on Monday right before Reid promptly cut Cruz off while the freshman senator was speaking. 

As The Hill noted, Cruz, "concerned that the conference report—which cannot be filibustered—would be used to raise the nation’s debt ceiling," asked Reid to "amend his motion to go to conference to make out of order any provisions raising taxes or raising the debt ceiling."

Reid found the notion absurd. 

“My friend from Texas is like a schoolyard bully,” Reid then said. Reid, who often employs the Senate's arcane rules, said Cruz "pushes everybody around and is losing"; he complained Cruz was not "playing the game according to the rules."

Cruz replied, “I wasn’t aware we are in the schoolyard.”

Reid then angrily cut him off by saying, “enough.”

They Wouldn’t Act This Way If Ted Cruz Weren’t Putting Points on the Board

Posted May 8, 2013 ~ Erick Erickson, RedState.com

The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board is upset with Ted Cruz for leading a filibuster against gun control.

John McCain tweeted out the Journal’s editorial in a moment of wackiness.

Bill Richardson, the scandal plagued former Governor of New Mexico, says Ted Cruz can’t be called hispanic despite being hispanic because Ted Cruz isn’t a race baiter like Richardson.

And now Harry Reid calls Ted Cruz a schoolyard bully for Cruz objecting to Harry Reid trying to expand government in a bipartisan fashion.

Most interesting to me is this part of Harry Reid’s statement of frustration:

He pushes everybody around and is losing and instead of playing the game according to the rules, he not only takes the ball home with him, but he changes the rules that way no one wins except the bully who tries to indicate to people that he has won.

REP. MATT KRAUSE'S "COME AND TAKE IT" FIREARM PROTECTION BILL PASSES THE TEXAS HOUSE

Posted May 8, 2013

AUSTIN, TEXAS - Today, Rep. Matt Krause passed H.B. 928 on its third and final reading out of the Texas House of Representatives. H.B. 928 is the first bill Rep. Krause has successfully guided out of the chamber in his first term in office.

"There has been a lot of discussion on firearms and our rights as Americans in the wake of the recent mass killings in Colorado and Connecticut," said Rep. Matt Krause. "H.B. 928 simply ensures that Texas will frame the discussion on these issues and that we will not aid the federal government in enforcing unnecessarily restrictive or punitive measures designed to keep firearms out of the hands of law-abiding citizens."

Liberal Anger Only Makes Ted Cruz Stronger

Posted May 8, 2013

Rude, entitled, arrogant and off- putting: That’s how the conventionally wise in Washington are characterizing Ted Cruz, the conservative new senator from Texas. It’s a better description of the critics themselves, who are inadvertently helping Cruz build his national fan base.

I’ll admit to being biased about Cruz, who has been a friend for almost half my life. But you don’t need to like Cruz or his politics to see how weightless some of the criticisms are.

The New York Times columnist David Brooks delivered a common critique of Cruz in a recent public appearance: “If you mention the name Ted Cruz to other senators, you just get titanic oceans of eye rolling. Because you’re a freshman, you don’t go in and take over hearings, you, like, hang around and learn how it’s done,” he said. “It doesn’t help that he has a face that looks a little like Joe McCarthy, actually. I just -- I find him a little off-putting.”

So, in short: You’re trashing the fine traditions of this great and storied chamber. Plus we don’t like your face.

Time to shed new transparency on those who oppose government transparency

Posted May 8, 2013

‘Death’ of a local bond debt transparency bill raises question: whose interests are public officials’ protecting?

Would taxpayers approve new bond measures readily as often is the case if they knew the true amount of their local debt? The approaching May 11 elections provide good opportunity for a closer look at the practice of taxing entities using “sales pitches” that ignore vital information like current bond debt. And when the Austin American-Statesman reports the “death” of a transparency bill in the Texas House, a bill requiring school districts, cities, counties and special districts to disclose long-term debt obligations and other financial information to voters annually – including on bond election ballots – taxpayers might be well-served to wonder just whose interests the government entities and legislators opposing such measures are really protecting?

Why would reputable public officials not support “greater governmental transparency,” a term the Statesman used to describe HB 14? Nonetheless, Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, D-San Antonio, killed the bill based on “the parliamentary maneuver known as a point of order” reportedly because officials from his hometown “saw it as a burden.”

Why I Oppose the Internet Tax Bill

By Sen. Ted Cruz - May 5, 2013 (Posted May 7, 2013)

Basic tenets of economics dictate that when you tax something, you get less of it. That’s why it’s incomprehensible that the U.S. Senate is moving to raise taxes on one of the brightest sectors of our struggling economy.

The Internet is a thriving ecosystem of entrepreneurial freedom that should be protected and nourished. It has allowed new businesses to compete in the national marketplace in ways that would have been impossible 15 years ago, and it empowers consumer choice. But tax-hungry politicians view the Internet as yet another source of revenue to bail out their big-spending governments.

The misleadingly titled Marketplace Fairness Act is a job-killing tax hike, plain and simple. It is, in effect, a national Internet sales tax, which would hammer the little guy and benefit giant corporations.

Republicans ride on Cruz control

Posted May 7, 2013

Conservative Republicans, including former Sen. Jim DeMint (S.C.), head of the Heritage Foundation, applaud Cruz’s willingness to challenge the status quo in the Senate Republican caucus.

The Texan has become a hero of movement conservatives by taking on members of his own party and scolding them for apathy and defeatism.

It is what many had hoped to see from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who like Cruz defeated a heavily-favored opponent backed by the establishment in a Republican primary. But Rubio has taken a more cautious approach and irked conservatives recently by teaming up with Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to craft immigration legislation.
Cruz’s aggression has also rankled colleagues in a chamber where seniority rules.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called Cruz and his conservative colleague Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) “wacko birds” and dismissed their attempted filibuster of the nomination of CIA director John Brennan as ridiculous. McCain later apologized for the “wacko birds” remark.
Many conservative activists outside of Washington, on the other hand, are delighted with Cruz. “I’ve been in about 25 cities in the last few months. All I have to do is bring up Ted Cruz’s name and people stand up and applaud,” DeMint said. “What people want outside of Washington is totally different of what you hear on the inside of Washington.

Is Cy-Fair ISD illegally using tax dollars to lobby?

Posted May 7, 2013

Connie Sadowski at Red Apple Project reports the following regarding the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD (CFISD):
Cypress-Fairbanks ISD continues to use taxpayer dollars to lobby the legislature in opposition to bills that would help students get a ‘free and appropriate education’ as required by the Texas Constitution. A Cy-Fair ISD attorney has told us in the past that their lobbying the legislature is legal. We wonder if the State Attorney General would agree.

Cy-Fair ISD is afraid that when Cy-Fair parents are given a choice, they would choose a mass-exodus of Cy Fair ISD schools.

Are they not proud of their schools? Any district that warns of a mass exodus of students and tax dollars can’t be very proud of their teachers or students, and are misleading parents of the true purpose of school choice.
