The First Big Step Toward Obama’s Impeachment

Posted May 17, 2013

Over the last few days, I’ve heard the word “impeachment” from more of my sources on Capitol Hill than in the last six years combined.
One member of Congress told me to look at the Richard M. Nixon articles of impeachment and just change the name to Barack Obama.
That member believes that many of the arguments about the Watergate cover-up apply to the current Benghazi cover-up scandal, the IRS Tea Party scandal, and the AP telephone records scandal.
Here’s how article one against Nixon laid out the charges:

  • making false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States
  • withholding relevant and material evidence or information from lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States

Judge Upholds AZ Denying Licenses to Illegal Immigrants

Posted May 17, 2013

A judge has refused to halt Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's policy denying driver's licenses for young immigrants who have gotten work permits and avoided deportation under an Obama administration policy.

The decision Thursday by U.S. District Judge David Campbell rejects the argument by immigrant rights advocates who say her policy is unconstitutional because it's trumped by federal law.

Last summer, the Obama administration took steps to shield thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

Arizona's refusal to view those in the deferral program as legal residents has become the most visible challenge to the program the president announced in June.

Brewer's lawyers asked for the lawsuit challenging her policy to be dismissed.

The judge dismissed one claim, but another remains alive.

Congressmen: Were Conservative Car Dealers Targeted for GM Closures?

Posted May 17, 2013

Two Congressmen are asking the Treasury Department if it inappropriately scrutinized conservative-owned businesses the same way it targeted Tea Party groups filing for tax-exempt status.

Republicans Mike Kelly (PA-03) and Jim Renacci (OH-16) circulated a letter Thursday requesting Treasury Secretary Jack Lew release documents detailing the process and methodology the Automotive Task Force used to shut down General Motors dealerships in 2009 during the automotive industry crisis.

EPA inspector general investigating claims agency used fees to block FOIA requests

Posted May 17, 2013

Acting Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Bob Perciasepe has asked the Inspector General for the EPA to investigate claims the agency hindered inquiries by conservative groups by charging fees routinely waived for watchdog and media groups.
Perciasepe announced the request for an audit of the agency’s Freedom of Information Act request fee decisions at a House Energy and Commerce Committee panel hearing on the EPA’s fiscal year 2014 budget Thursday morning.

In response to lawmakers’ concerns that the EPA targeted conservative groups in a manner similar to the IRS, Perciasepe said the EPA does not treat people differently when reviewing requests for information, regardless of their political leaning, according to the Hill.

Eric Holder blasts Rep. Darrell Issa: Your conduct is ‘inappropriate,’ ‘shameful’ and ‘unacceptable’

Posted May 16, 2013

As Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., pressed Attorney General Eric Holder for details about a phone call from Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, Holder lost his temper.

Holder interrupted Issa’s line of questioning and declared that he would not stop talking.

“No, I am not going to stop talking now,” Holder said after Issa tried to ask him a follow-up question.

“Mr. Chairman, would you inform the witness as to the rules of the committee?” Issa asked, speaking over Holder’s protest.

“It is inappropriate and too consistent with the way in which you conduct yourself as a member of Congress,” Holder continued. “It is unacceptable. It is shameful.”

URGENT : PLEASE CALL! - New Texas Donor Disclosure Bill - Removes 501c4 Donor Privacy

Posted May 17, 2013

THE GRASSROOTS TEXANS NETWORK

Call Governor PerryAs you probably know, the Obama Administration has received a great deal of heat and well-deserved criticism for trying to force politically-active 501(c)(4) non-profits to disclose the identity of their donors.

What you may not know is that a Texas bill to accomplish the same thing* is now sitting on Gov. Perry's desk--and he's actually considering signing it.

(*-To be fair, there is at least one difference: the Texas bill specifically exempts labor unions and affiliates.)

Via the Texas Tribune:

SB 346, by state Sen. Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo, would force tax-exempt, politically active nonprofits that fall under section 501(c)(4) of the tax code — the part that oversees groups involved in “social welfare” — to disclose their donors. The bill, which would affect major political givers on both sides of the aisle, originally passed the Senate 23-6; a day later, led by state Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, senators voted 21-10 to reverse themselves, some saying they hadn’t understood what the bill required. Seliger said at the time that his colleagues had faced heavy lobbying by major political donors to change their votes.

Texas Monthly

The bill in question, SB-346, by Amarillo Republican Kel Seliger, would change the state election code so that 501(c)(4) nonprofits operating in the political realm would be required to disclose their donors, as political action committees (PACs) already must do. On Tuesday, the bill was met with little discussion and passed the chamber with a 23-6 vote. Patrick’s recall resolution cleared the Senate in a 21-10 vote. 

Texas Public Radio

From now on political nonprofit groups will have to post any contributions being received from lawmakers or money going towards political campaigns thanks to a bill passed in the Texas Senate and now House.

The bill, authored by Sen. Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo, and carried in the House by Rep. Charlie Geren, R-River Oaks, would require all political groups or 501.C4 organizations disclose who is bringing the money in and where it is going.

Lex Politico (opinion): 

The bill would basically expand the legal definition of “political committee” to capture more groups and require them to report the name, address, and other information with respect to persons who donate more than $1,000 to the group. At first glance, that sounds innocuous. But it is entirely unnecessary given the current definitions in the Election Code.  It would also impose a substantial burden on many nonprofits and chill free speech.

If you believe it's none of the government's business who donates to your non-profit group, you would be well-advised to call Governor Perry NOW and ask him to VETO SB346.  If Governor Perry does not veto the bill, the donor disclosure demands recently made by Obama's IRS will become mandatory under Texas law.

Texas May Have Its Own Gosnell: Houston Doc Accused of Gruesome Illegal Abortions

Posted May 17, 2013

Although Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist found guilty this week of three counts of first-degree murder, has been successfully removed from civil society, another abortion practitioner like him may be on the loose in Houston, Texas.

“Harris County authorities and the Texas Department of State Health Services are investigating a local doctor accused Wednesday by an anti-abortion group of performing late-term abortions in 2011,” the Houston Chronicle reports.

The abortionist, Douglas Karpen, has been accused by three former staffers, Deborah Edge, Gigi Aguliar, and Krystal Rodriguez, of performing several illegal abortions. Their testimony, and alleged photographic evidence, was brought to light by Operation Rescue, a pro-life watchdog.

Judge orders dashcam video release in Grisham ‘rudely displaying of weapon’ case

Posted May 16, 2013

A visiting judge on Wednesday ordered the Bell County Attorney’s Office to release police dashcam video in the case of C.J. Grisham, the Texas soldier whose March 16 arrest by Temple police spawned a viral video.

While the law, specifically Brady v. Maryland, requires release of evidence which is often handled as a simple administrative matter, the delay in this case suggests prosecutors’ discontent with the widespread media attention and public scrutiny.

KONNI BURTON ANNOUNCES CAMPAIGN FOR STATE SENATE DISTRICT 10

Posted May 15, 2013

Today, Tarrant County resident Konni Burton officially launched her campaign against Wendy Davis for State Senate District 10. Konni Burton is a conservative activist who has been engaged in grassroots politics at the state and national level. In addition to her boots on the ground work to send conservatives to Austin and D.C., she has worked to educate & mobilize other grassroots conservatives as well. She has worked with various conservative grassroots groups and is currently on her second legislative session with the Tea Party Caucus Advisory Committee that travels regularly to Austin to meet with legislators.

In announcing her candidacy Burton stated, “After being approached by conservatives across Tarrant County about running for State Senate, I’ve decided to enter the race. With the federal government’s mounting debt, it is imperative that we make Texas strong. We need public servants in Austin that will protect the taxpayer and put Texas on the path of sound fiscal policy while reducing the size of our state government. We need to keep our state's Rainy Day Fund strong so that it’s there for our citizens in the event of an economic downturn. We need to prevent the implementation of ObamaCare in Texas so that this government overreach doesn’t bankrupt our state. We need to stop the state of Texas from using our tax dollars to pick winners and losers in the market. Parents need to have the choice to choose which school is best for their child's education. And our 2nd amendment rights need to be protected and the rule of law enforced so that our citizens can feel safe in their communities.”

Leaders, grassroots activists and elected officials in the district and across Texas weighed in on Burton’s announcement.

Bedford State Representative Jonathan Stickland endorsed Burton saying, "Konni Burton is one of the strongest conservative leaders in Tarrant County. She’s a fiscal and social conservative who can articulate our values in a way very few can. I'm proud to endorse her campaign and look forward to serving alongside her in the Texas Legislature."

Robert D. Smith, Board & Steering Committee Member of the NE Tarrant Tea Party said, “I have known Konni for several years. She is a great conservative. I have worked with her on conservative causes and she goes all out dedicating her time, talents and resources. She will do anything needed to support her candidate or cause. I support her because I know she will make a great State Senator.”

Executive Director of Grassroots America and chairman of the Tea Party Advisory committee JoAnn Fleming also endorsed Konni saying, “"Texas desperately needs leaders who will actively work for - not just talk about - limited government, economic liberty for all, and driving special corporate interests out of the Capitol. Konni Burton understands state government needs to steer clear of piling more debt on future generations of Texans because she knows "borrow and spend" is just as bad as "tax and spend." For commonsense leadership that won't play games with your money and your liberty, support Konni Burton for state senate. I am."

Konni and her husband Phil reside in Colleyville and have two daughters. Tori is a Junior at Tarleton State University and Faith is a Junior at Grapevine High School. Konni and her family are active members of Calvary Lutheran Church in Richland Hills.

True the Vote Founder: IRS Tea Party Scandal 'Beginning of Tyranny'

Posted May 14, 2013

Tea party groups' allegations that the IRS has long been targeting them for their political beliefs were recently confirmed by an apology from the IRS. The scandal gained traction as congressional leaders began efforts to hold the IRS accountable and understand the depths of the federal government’s politically-motivated abuses of power. 

Yet given the history of such abuses, the problem may extend further than the IRS, and require a "government-wide" probe across several agencies, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has suggested.

The issue was initially believed to only involve groups with “Tea Party” or “patriots” in their names being singled out for greater scrutiny by the IRS, but recent admissions reveal that a wide range of conservative and constitution-oriented groups were singled out by the federal government. Most media outlets have focused on 2012 as the year the abuses occurred, but one prominent Tea Party-initiated organization, True the Vote, began to run into alleged federal government abuses in 2010--from a variety of agencies.

CHAOS AND CORRUPTION ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER: A Texas Rancher Speaks

Posted May 14, 2013

On the way to Blogcon, I struck up a conversation with a longtime Texas rancher who was headed home. We ended up talking about the real situation for ranchers. "Rancher X" owns a large ranch near MacAllen, Texas. The following is not word for word, but captured from my notes during a two hour discussion.

The entire border area is dominated by corruption. There are corrupt judges, corrupt ICE agents, corrupt sheriffs, and it's not just me saying that: you can read about indictments and convictions every week. It seems like there's a new federal indictment of a district judge, a border patrol agent, a local sheriff, etc. coming down that often.

We're one of the poorest areas in the country, so lots of federal dollars are headed here. But it's not fair to say that all of the corruption is just fueled by the drugs, humans and other stuff smuggled over the border. Also, I shouldn't say "smuggled", because it's just flowing over the border. All of the money corrupts every layer of government. Remember that officials get elected with money, and they are put into office by money.
