Destroying our country, our military and our very existence

Posted May 10, 2013 ~ Paula Helton

Demanding the truth about Extortion 17

How many Americans have heard of Extortion 17? Extortion 17 was the call sign for the Chinook helicopter shot down in Afghanistan on the night of August 6, 2011. Killed in that crash were 25 special ops forces, including 15 members of Seal Team 6, 5 national Guard troops and 8 Afghans.

Today, the families of the military killed in that crash held a press conference to lay out the coverup by Obama and the military that has gone on since that crash.

62% of House GOP Now Co-Sponsoring Bill for Special Committee on Benghazi

Posted May 10, 2013

(CNSNews.com) - Sixty-two percent of the Republican members of the House of Representatives--143 of 231--are now co-sponsoring a bill that would authorize a special committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

The only thing standing between this super-majority of House Republicans and the special investigative committee they seek is House Speaker John Boehner, who controls the legislation the Republican majority brings to the floor for a vote.

Boehner calls for release of Benghazi emails as pressure grows on administration

Posted May 10, 2013

Pressure on the Obama administration to release more information about the Benghazi attack grew Thursday, as House Speaker John Boehner demanded officials turn over emails pertaining to the controversial "talking points" and another top Republican appealed for more whistle-blowers to come forward. 

On the heels of a dramatic hearing where three whistle-blowers testified, Fox News has learned that former Vice President Dick Cheney on Thursday, on the Hill for a meeting with House Republicans, also told lawmakers: "I think Hillary (Clinton) should be subpoenaed if necessary."

Examiner Editorial: Obama's Benghazi video tale made a big difference

Posted May 10, 2013

"The fact is, we had four dead Americans," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton famously exploded during a January Senate hearing on the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. "Was it because of a protest or was it because some guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? "It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again."

Clinton's outburst was portrayed afterward by the media as an example of her strength against Republican critics in Congress. But that narrative was rendered obsolete by testimony Wednesday before the House Oversight and Government Operations Committee by a career U.S. diplomat posted in Libya during the assault. The first part of the answer to Clinton's ringing question is now clear: The Obama administration's ridiculous claim that the attacks were a response to an anti-Muslim YouTube video undermined U.S. efforts to figure out what actually happened.

Immigration Bill Grants 'Unreviewable' Power Seven Times, 'Discretion' Power 43 Times

Posted May 10, 2013

Law enforcement officials nationwide have warned Congress of the dangers giving too much power to "appointed officials" like DHS Sec. Janet Napolitano in the immigration bill S.744 being considered in the Senate.
In a letter to Congress, they warn the bill grants "virtually unlimited" discretion to grant illegal aliens legal status to the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It also grants the secretary "sole and unreviewable" power in some cases, they caution.
In fact, the bill invokes "discretion" 43 times - and grants "unreviewable discretion" seven times.
The seven references to "unreviewable discretion" granted in the Senate Immigration Bill are (emphasis added):

Gov't Inspector: $50 Million Stolen From US Treasury Disappears After Being Found in Afghan Bank

Posted May 10, 2013

John F. Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), spoke at New America Foundation's National Security Studies Program on Wednesday and said $50 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars was stolen from the United States Treasury and found in a bank in Afghanistan.
The money has since gone missing.

"We identified 50 million dollars stolen from the United States Treasury and it was sitting in an Afghan bank account," said Sopko.

"We identified the bank account, we obtained a court order in the United States and had it served on the Afghan government to get them to seize that money. For months we pressed the Afghan Attorney General's office and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to freeze the account and begin the legal process to allow us to seize that cash. At first, we were told the bank account was frozen and the money was protected.

Report: New York City May Allow Amnestied Illegal Immigrants to Vote

Posted May 10, 2013

New York City may soon allow non-citizens, including illegal immigrants who would be granted amnesty if the Senate's immigration reform bill passes Congress, to vote in elections.

According to Talking Points Memo, the New York City Council is currently considering a proposal that would allow non-citizens to vote in local elections. Even though Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly opposes the proposal, TPM reports that the New York City Council “appears to have a veto-proof majority” so it could make the proposal law without Bloomberg’s support.

Queens College professor Ron Hayduk, a supporter of the proposal who helped craft it, told TPM that this proposal is likely to influence the national immigration debate, too, as pro-amnesty factions are likely to support it.

Here Are the 5 Key Things to Take Away From Wednesday’s Benghazi Hearing

Posted May 9, 2013

Three Benghazi whistleblowers appeared before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday to shed some light on the deadly terrorist attack that claimed the lives of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department official Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

Several stunning revelations were made throughout the hearing, however, there were a few things that stood out.

Here are the five key things to take away from Wednesday’s Benghazi hearing:

5. State Department Official Fingered Terror Group Day After Attack

One of the biggest points of contention in the Benghazi investigation has been: Why did the Obama administration initially blame the terrorist attack on a YouTube video when there was no apparent evidence to support that theory?

The Benghazi hearings: what’s new and what’s not

Posted May 9, 2013

“I was stunned. My jaw dropped. And I was embarrassed”

— Gregory Hicks, former U.S. deputy chief of mission to Libya, testifying on his reaction to U.N. Ambassador Susan E. Rice’s remarks on the terror attack in Benghazi, May 8, 2013

Readers who are just tuning into the Benghazi story may be a little confused about what is new — and what is not. As a reader service, here’s an effort to help readers through some of the fog of charges and countercharges that emerged at the House hearings on Wednesday.

Reports of Demonstrations

 Gregory Hicks, the deputy chief of mission in Libya at the time of the attack, testified that it was clear from his perspective that this was a terrorist attack. The last words he heard from J. Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador who was killed in the attack, were: “Greg, we’re under attack.”

But the attack occurred shortly after violent protests outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, which muddied the news reporting and may have shaped official perceptions.

White House denies changing Benghazi intelligence reports

Posted May 9, 2013

White House spokesman Jay Carney today blamed the intelligence agencies for the administration’s effort to hide Al Qaeda’s role in the lethal jihadi attack last September on the U.S. diplomatic site in Benghazi, Libya.

“The intelligence community drafted and redrafted these [public affairs] points… the fact that there are inputs from others doesn’t change the fact that the CIA, the intelligence community, drafted these points,” he told reporters at the daily briefing.

Asked if White House officials made any changes, Carney claimed that “the only edits were stylistic and non-substantive.”

After Benghazi hearings, lawmakers want more ‘whistle-blowers’ to step forward

Posted May 9, 2013

WASHINGTON — After hours of testimony Wednesday from witnesses to last year’s lethal terrorist attacks in Benghazi, lawmakers on Capitol Hill called on more “whistle-blowers” to come forward, saying there is much more to learn.

“This hearing is now over, but this investigation is not,” Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told reporters in the hallway after the hearing.

Issa, a Republican from California, said his message to potential “whistle-blowers” who “have been afraid to come forward” is that “today should demonstrate that in fact it is the right time to come forward.”

DOJ Won't Require Warrants for Email, Chat Seizures

Posted May 9, 2013

In blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure, the Department of Justice has apparently declared that they do not require warrants for grabbing Americans’ emails and Facebook chats. The ACLU has gotten hold of the documents from the FBI and DOJ that show that a subpoena, which comes from a prosecutor, is all that is necessary to seize emails and chats. The FBI released a statement on the matter:

In all investigations, the FBI obtains evidence in accordance with the laws and Constitution of the United States, and consistent with Attorney General guidelines. Our field offices work closely with US Attorney’s Office to adhere to the legal requirements of their particular districts as set forth in case law or court decisions/precedent.

The IRS previously backed away from a similar policy. On Tuesday, the Obama administration said they may support an FBI proposal for a law forcing tech companies to create surveillance capacities.

Terri Schiavo's Brother Plea to Texas House Against Senator Deuell's SB 303

Posted May 10, 2013

The Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS) labels Senator Deuell’s  SB 303  The Death Panel Bill.   In our opinion Dr. Deuell himself earns the title Dr. Death for authoring this bill that transfers "do not attempt resuscitation” (DNAR) power from patients and their personal physicians to hospital administration.

We recently received an email concerning this dreadful bill from a person with painful first-hand knowledge about how those with little apparent respect for life, if given the authority by this bill, can terminate the life of those fighting to live.  We reprint the email below and ask that you take a few minutes to read it and hopefully act upon his request.

Texas school quiz: environmental footprint trumps brain activity

Posted May 10, 2013

What is your environmental footprint? What you eat, what you drive, your home’s size and number of inhabitants – even the decadent, wasteful presence of an ever-evil swimming pool. Is this information students should be required to share in school?

A link at Red Hot Conservative identifies a fascinating Environmental Footprint Quiz as part of the controversial CSCOPE curriculum management system. It’s labeled as a high school biology lesson.

T.J. Fabby Announces Campaign for Texas State Representative

Posted May 9, 2013

T.J. Fabby formally announces his second run for state representative. He will, once again, be seeking election to the District 10 seat currently held by Jim Pitts, who has been in office for 20 years.

Fabby had this to say about the upcoming race, “I truly believe that most of the folks in Ellis and western Henderson County would choose life, freedom and fiscal sanity if it was clearly marked on the ballot. I want to make sure that those things are on the ballot. We look forward to spreading this message of liberty, property rights, and honest limited government to even more voters this election season and continuing to ignite the brushfires of liberty in the hearts and minds of folks in our communities.”

Availability payments: a public private partnership in sheep’s clothing

Posted May 9, 2013 ~ Terri Hall

The Texas legislature is considering another 'tool in the toolbox' to build roads, without the controversial concession public private partnership (P3) model, called ‘availability payments.’ House bill 3650 by Rep. Linda Harper-Brown opens the door to this type of P3 where the private sector pays for the road and gets paid back as money is ‘available.’

The argument by proponents is that payments to the private entity are only made if money is appropriated or 'available,' and that it does not constitute a debt to the state. However, this 'tool' puts ALL Texas taxpayers on the hook for repayment of the project. Whether it’s a toll project and revenues are inadequate to repay the obligation or debt to the private company, or a non-toll project, taxpayers are obligated to re-pay the private entity, presumably with interest. Just because the debt is off the balance sheet, doesn't mean taxpayers are not obligated to pay it.

Cruz Seeks to Permanently Block Illegal Immigrants from All Welfare

Posted May 9, 2013

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) aims to block any illegal immigrant from ever receiving any state, local, or federal welfare or public benefits with a series of amendments to the immigration reform bill currently under review in the U.S. Senate.

Cruz has filed five amendments to the bill. The one currently marked “Cruz 2” on the Senate Judiciary Committee website (the amendments have not yet received official numbers) has a stated purpose to “provide that aliens who have entered or remained present in the United States while not in lawful status shall not be eligible for means-tested benefits.”

The amendment would insert language into the bill that specifically says no illegal immigrant who broke the law to enter or stay in the country “shall be eligible for any Federal, State, or local government means-tested benefit, nor shall such alien be eligible for any benefit under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Pub. L. 111-148), regardless of the alien’s legal status at the time of application for such benefit.”

Cruz’s next amendment, currently marked “Cruz 3” on the Senate Judiciary Committee website, would eliminate the bill’s path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. When the two amendments are combined, it would mean illegal immigrants would never receive public benefits even if they were permanently legalized and allowed to legally stay and work because they would never reach citizenship.

Ted Cruz Has All the Right Enemies

Posted May 9, 2013

It's clear that Cruz's intelligence is marking him for media harassment. Former Newsweek Washington bureau chief Evan Thomas spoke for the journalistic masses: "You need to watch this guy, because there are a lot of demagogues out there, but not that many who are that smart. He is really, really smart, and that makes him potentially dangerous."

Liberals are far more comfortable with Republican leaders they can define as dimwits — like that Harvard MBA, George W. Bush. They champion liberal politicians with mediocre college grades like Al Gore with honorifics, such as "The Thinking Man's Thinking Man." Ted Cruz upsets their liberals-are-smarter apple cart.

Despite the media harassment, Ted Cruz is kicking tail and taking names. The Washington Post notes that his reaction to all the criticism can be summed up as "Lovin' it!" He is one member of Congress I'd like every other Republican to emulate. How crazy could that make the media elite?

Texas Doctor Sues U.S. Over Affordable Health Care Act

Posted May 9, 2013

A Texas doctor sued the U.S. over President Barack Obama’s health-care reforms on claims the U.S. Supreme Court overlooked when it upheld the Affordable Care Act last year.

Steven Hotze of Houston claims the law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, violates the U.S. Constitution’s origination and takings clauses, which weren’t part of arguments before the Supreme Court. The high court upheld the act by a 5-to-4 vote.

Hotze’s suit, filed today in federal court in Houston, targets the “shared responsibility payment” business owners will be required to pay the U.S. under the act if they choose not to provide government-approved minimum health coverage for their workers. That penalty kicks in on Jan. 1.

“Obamacare has become a redistribution of wealth scheme, where people are compelled to pay money to other people,” Hotze’s lawyer, Andy Schlafly, said in a telephone interview. “The government isn’t allowed to order one private party, a business owner, to pay money to another private party, an insurance company.”

These payments, which Hotze claims the Supreme Court upheld under Congress’s power to levy taxes, are “expected to raise about $4 billion per year by 2017” for the U.S. Treasury, according to the complaint.

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.
