The Scandal Dump is a Smokescreen

Posted June 10, 2013

For several months, the Benghazi scandal lay dormant, apparently forgiven and forgotten.  Then, inexplicably, it reared its ugly head when Congressmen Ron Johnson and Jason Chaffetz smelled Obama's blood in the water. 

After feigning affliction with the flu, and then ostensibly tumbling down a carpeted stairwell resulting in an unconfirmed concussion, then-Secretary of State Clinton was finally forced to testify before Congress.  Clinton's desperate attempt to put the  Benghazi scandal to rest with her now-infamous impassioned declaration -- "What difference, at this point, does it make?" -- only fanned the flames of American outrage at the needless deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, his aide Sean Smith, and two valiant Navy SEALS, Tyrone Woods and Glen Dougherty.

Don't take your eyes off Benghazi

Posted June 10, 2013

The latest flurry of scandals flooding the media is merely a smokescreen to obscure the real scandal that could potentially bring down the Obama administration. The real scandal is Benghazi.

Do you remember Hilary Clinton's statement, "What difference at this point does it make?" Immediately after that, scandal after scandal, headline after headline, has been pushing Benghazi further and further from the front page. Put the focus back on Benghazi.

The group leading the charge to end the Benghazi cover-up is SOS (Special Operations Speaks).

Government likely to open criminal probe into NSA leaks: officials

Posted June 10, 2013

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama's administration is likely to open a criminal investigation into the leaking of highly classified documents that revealed the secret surveillance of Americans' telephone and email traffic, U.S. officials said on Friday.

The law enforcement and security officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly, said the agencies that normally conduct such investigations, including the FBI and Justice Department, were expecting a probe into the leaks to a British and an American newspaper.

Such investigations typically begin after an agency that believes its secrets have been leaked without authorization files a complaint with the Justice Department.

It was unclear on Friday whether a complaint had been submitted by the publicity-shy National Security Agency, which was most directly involved in the collection of trillions of telephone and email communications.

However, one U.S. official with knowledge of the situation said that given the extent and sensitivity of the recent leaks, federal law may compel officials to open an investigation.

The Patriot Briefing by New Revolution Now

Posted June 10, 2013

June 16th is the last day Gov. Perry can VETO bills that have come to his desk. Now the Governor is probably a little preoccupied with preparing for his "next step" in the political arena and needs our help to re-focus on his current responsibilities. He may also need some help remembering his legislative priorities he set before the 83rd legislative session began. So, that's where we come in with words of encouragement.

CALL BOMB Monday June 10th 8:00am to 8:00pm
Call the Governor's Office 800-843-5789 or 512-463-2000 
Remind Him of His Legislative Priorities 
Encourage Him to Take Recommended Action on the Following Bills
 
SB-1 and HB-1025  General and supplemental appropriation bills.

  • Status: On the Governor's desk
  • Recommendation: STRONGLY AGAINST
  • Research: Real Texas Budget Solutions 
  • Comment: The current budget bill raises spending by 26% and provides for too little tax relief. This will be bad for the Texas economy and it's citizens.
  • Call to action: Contact Governor Perry's office and encourage him to veto the bills and call for a special session on the budget. 

SB 1406 Relating to State Board of Education oversight of regional education service center activities concerning certain curriculum management systems.

  • Status: On the Governor's desk.
  • Recommendation: STRONGLY FOR
  • Research: CSCOPE or C-SCAM? 
  • Comment:  This legislation will shed the light of public scrutiny on the controversial CSCOPE curriculum.
  • Call to action: Contact Governor Perry's office and encourage him to sign this bill.

SB 2 Relating to charter schools and home-rule charter school districts.

  • Status: On the Governor's desk. 
  • Recommendation: FOR

  • Additional Research: Lifting the cap on charters 
  • Call to action: Contact Governor Perry's office and encourage him to sign this bill.

Other calls to action: Contact Governor Perry's office and encourage him to VETO the following BAD bills:

HB 2103 - Allows the Texas Education Agency, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and the Texas Workforce Commission to share personal data with education research centers in Texas and across the nation  - the data goes back 20 years.

HB 5 - Decimates the "measuring stick" (STAAR/EOC's) so that parents will not know whether their children have been taught Type #1 or Type #2 curriculum (such as CSCOPE, Common Core Standards, Safari Montage, TASA iCLOUD) until it is too late.

HB 866 - Companion to HB 5 to destroy the measuring stick - >From Grades 3 - 8, students are only tested twice in Writing on an objective instrument (STAAR), once in Social Studies, two times in Science, three times in Math, and three times in Reading.  

HB 2836 - Takes away authority over the curriculum standards (TEKS) from our elected Texas State Board of Education members.

HB 1675 - Moves back Sunset Review of the Education Service Centers to Sept. 1, 2019

HB 2824 - Lets a consortium of so-called "high performing" (mostly mediocre) school districts off the hook in terms of testing and accountability, thus freeing them up to do teaching and learning to whatever goals and standards they choose.
SB 1730 - that sells-off 23 Texas roads to private, foreign companies!

Sen. Cruz Statement on NSA Phone Surveillance

Posted June 10, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) today released the following statement regarding President Obama’s comments on the NSA’s gathering of Americans’ private phone records:

We should always be mindful of the need for government to have the tools necessary to keep Americans safe in a dangerous world, where there are enemies plotting to attack us. We have seen the face of that enemy time and again, most recently in the terrorist attacks at Fort Hood, Benghazi and Boston to name a few.

But on one hand the Obama Administration says this enemy is in retreat, yet on the other, they are implementing what appears to be an unprecedented and intrusive surveillance system on private American citizens in the name of guarding against that enemy. Just today, the president encouraged us to trust him on this – to trust that there are safeguards to ensure our privacy is protected, trust that there is a system of checks and balances to prevent an abuse of power. But in light of this Administration's track record, how can they expect to be trusted?

We have discovered over the past few months an ongoing pattern of wanton disregard not only for Americans' privacy, but for the truth – DOJ's refusal to be forthcoming about drone policy, IRS's targeting groups for their political beliefs and then misleading the American people about it, DOJ's targeting of journalists for doing their jobs, and now what seems an unprecedented intrusion into Americans' personal phone records and potentially into their broader online activities.

Americans trusted President Obama when he came to office promising the most transparent administration in history. But that trust has been broken and the only way to earn it back is to tell the truth. That's what Americans deserve. I will be working with my colleagues in the Senate who share my concerns to ensure that we have all the facts about these surveillance programs, and that our government is appropriately balancing concerns of national security with Americans' personal liberties.

The hearing is set for 1:30 p.m. at the district office off Farm-to-Market Road 49, just inside the western Gilmer city limits.

County Pct. 3 Commissioner Frank Berka and Pct. 2 Commissioner Cole Hefner cited the county's financial situation this week in protesting the proposed pay hike. The county government and other taxing entities in the county finance the appraisal district.
