Key Provision in Defense of Marriage Act is Struck Down by U.S. High Court

Posted June 27, 2013

Elvis has left the building and the Supreme Court has left town… But just before they did they handed down a raft of major decisions. Amazingly enough some of them weren’t so bad. The net effect of the Supreme Court’s two decisions today on DOMA and on California’s Proposition 8 is that the power to decide whether or not to permit same sex marriage is left up to the States as it rightfully should be. This decision should not be construed as a defeat for traditional Christians, but rather as a victory for advocates of limited government, and for all of us who still love the Constitution. Apparently they still occasionally read it over there at the Supreme Court. These two decisions should NOT be viewed as a victory for all those who like to make love to someone of the same sex, no matter how hard they try to convince you. They should be viewed as a victory for all those who love the Constitution.

12 of the Most Cutting Highlights From Justice Scalia’s Angry Defense of Marriage Act Dissent

Posted June 27, 2013

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s acerbic style was on full display in his dissent from the high court’s decision to strike down the provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act denying benefits to married gay couples.
Scalia excoriated Justice Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion in United States v. Windsor as “rootless and shifting” and held that the court had no standing to take the case. Here are 12 sharp-tongued highlights:

• The Court is eager—hungry—to tell everyone its view of the legal question at the heart of this case. Standing in the way is an obstacle, a technicality of little interest to anyone but the people of We the People, who created it as a barrier against judges’ intrusion into their lives. They gave judges, in Article III, only the “judicial Power,” a power to decide not abstract questions but real, concrete “Cases” and “Controversies.” Yet the plaintiff and the Government agree entirely on what should happen in this lawsuit. They agree that the court below got it right; and they agreed in the court below that the court below that one got it right as well. What, then, are we doing here?

IRS Sent $7,319,518 in Refunds to One Bank Account Used by 2,706 Aliens

Posted June 25, 2013

(CNSNews.com) - The Internal Revenue Service sent $7,319,518 in tax refunds in 2011 to what theoretically were 2,706 aliens who were not authorized to work inside the United States and who all used the same bank account, according to an audit report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

Enough Is Enough… ‘Gang of 8′ Members Jeff Flake & John McCain Face Recall Petitions

Posted June 25, 2013

A new website is asking Arizona residents for their signatures to recall Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain for supporting the immigration-amnesty bill.

The website even has an easy name to remember – SenatorJeffFlake.com

And this is from shameless Senator John McCain’s recall page:
Do you remember this? McCain’s “Complete the Danged Fence”? In June 2013, McCain showed us his true colors and voted against building the 700 mile-long fence (that was required by previous law in 2006).

Breaking News: Florida Patriot Groups feel betrayed by Senator Rubio - Withdraw Support

Posted June 24, 2013

Conservative organizations throughout Florida met in Orlando this weekend. After the meeting these patriot groups have united in withdrawing support from Senator Marco Rubio over a string of broken promises made to the American people regarding Immigration.

In an April 16, 2013 letter from the Senator to Florida Patriot Groups, he pledged to not support legislation that is rushed through Congress, does not truly and legitimately secure our borders or that leads to further illegal immigration in the future. In a “Dear Friends” letter Rubio states, “First, there is absolutely no truth to the idea that l will support any immigration legislation that is rushed through Congress in typical Washington fashion.”

“The current bill, current amendment and the rush to ram the bill through the Senate by week’s end violate this letter and  earlier public statements by the Senator,” says Pat Wayman from the Venice 912 Group. “This bill will forever be known as the Rubio Amnesty bill.

Where Was the Tea Party in 2012?

Posted June 24, 2013

One of the great questions about the 2012 campaign has been “Where was the tea party?” They were not the fierce force they’d been in the 2010 cycle, when Republicans took back the House. Some of us think the answer to the question is: “Targeted by the IRS, buried under paperwork and unable to raise money.”

The economist Stan Veuger, on the American Enterprise Institute‘s blog, takes the question a step further.

The Democrats had been badly shaken by the Republican comeback of 2010. They feared a repeat in 2012 that would lose them the White House.

Might targeting the tea-party groups—diverting them, keeping them from forming and operating—seem a shrewd campaign strategy in the years between 2010 and 2012? Sure. Underhanded and illegal, but potentially effective.

Last month, Gerritson became the face and voice of those tea partiers who were victimized by the Internal Revenue Service when the powerful government agency targeted tea party and other conservative groups.

Texas Gov. Perry calls second special session on abortion

Posted June 27, 2013

AUSTIN, Texas –  After a one-woman filibuster and a raucous crowd helped derail a GOP-led effort to restrict Texas abortions, Gov. Rick Perry announced Wednesday that he's calling lawmakers back next week to try again.

Perry ordered the Legislature to meet July 1 to begin 30 more days of work. Like the first special session, which ended in chaos overnight, the second one will include on its agenda a Republican-backed plan that critics say would close nearly every abortion clinic across the state and impose other widespread limits on the procedure.

"I am calling the Legislature back into session because too much important work remains undone for the people of Texas," Perry said in a statement. "Texans value life and want to protect women and the unborn."

Let’s give the Republic another chance

Posted June 27, 2013

The filibuster might have been in line with the rules of the Texas Senate, but what happened next was not.  A crowd of some 400 pro-abortion protesters packed into the Senate chamber and literally drowned out the vote with their screaming and yelling.  The legislature was unable to finish voting and secure the signature of Lt. Governor David Dewhurst before the midnight deadline.  ”I didn’t lose control – we had an unruly mob,” said Dewhurst, before shrugging off the debacle and looking forward to another shot at passing the legislation.  ”It’s over.  It’s been fun.  But see you soon.”

That’s awfully sporting of him, but why should anyone – including abortion enthusiasts – be comfortable with the spectacle of mob rule overriding representative democracy?

The very next day, we got a dose of mob rule at the Supreme Court, as the liberal wing joined with the swingiest swing justice to ever swing from a court, Anthony Kennedy, to strike down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act.  The 5-4 majority was very clear that its personal preferences colored the decision.  They didn’t see any way a decent person could support restricting federal benefits to same-sex couples, so the machinery of representative democracy (and the signature of President Bill Clinton) was demolished with a judicial wrecking ball.  No further input from the people of the United States – or, more to the point, their elected representatives – would be solicited.

Senator Wendy Davis kills bill and babies in Texas

Dewhurst declares abortion bill dead, blames 'unruly mob'

Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst returned to the Senate floor at 3:01 a.m., banged the gavel and announced that, “regrettably, the constitutional time expired” on the special session.

Senate Bill 5 cannot be signed because it passed after midnight, he said.

After making his announcement, Dewhurst paused, then added: “It’s been fun, but, uh, see you soon.”

The crowds in the Capitol, loudly cheering early word that the bill had failed, let loose with another rousing cheer when told that it was official.

Speaking to reporters afterward, Dewhurst said he was furious about the night’s events.

“An unruly mob, using Occupy Wall Street tactics, disrupted the Senate from protecting unborn babies,” he said.

Supreme Court STRIKES DOWN Racist Voting Rights Act Provision - NO MORE DOJ PRECLEARANCE for Redistricting and Voter ID

Posted June 26, 2013

The Supreme Court of the United States has declared a key provision of the Voting Rights Act. I have long declared and written many articles explaining why Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act is racist, discriminatory and unconstitutional. SCOTUS did not strike down Section 5, but they effectively dismantled Section 5 by striking down Section 4.

Section 5 of the voting rights act requires certain states and counties to get preclearance from Eric Holder's racist Department of Justice before they can make ANY changes to anything involving elections.

Texas AG Tells Janine Turner that SCOTUS Voting Rights Act Decision Is a ‘Huge Win for Equality’

Posted June 26, 2013

Greg Abbott implements Texas Voter ID law immediately after the ruling.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott responded to today's Supreme Court decision striking down Section 4 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act by implementing Texas' voter ID law. The Texas legislature had passed that law in 2011, only to have the Obama-Holder Justice Department put it on ice while challenging it under the Voting Rights Act.

Appearing on the Janine Turner Show today, Abbott was jubilant.

"This is a huge win for the Constitution and for equality in this country," Abbott said. "Before today, different states were treated differently under the Constitution. The Voting Rights Act is the only law that was used to impose disparate or different kind of treatment. Specifically, Texas was called out and treated differently than other states."

Dewhurst Says Straus Did not get Pro Life Bill to TX Senate in Time

Dewhurst says that the Senate did not get the bill from the House in time to pass it in the Senate. They had all Special session to pass the bill and the Texas Senate had a plan from the beginning but the House leadership drug their feet.

Officials seek public feedback on flawed toll plan for US 281

Posted June 24, 2013

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority (RMA) are soliciting public comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Highway 281 expansion project. They held a public hearing Thursday, June 20, at the San Antonio Shrine Auditorium and nearly 250 people attended despite it being held on the same night as the final game of the Spurs World Championship play-offs. Over 90% of the public feedback opposed tolls on Hwy 281.

he Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) currently has two HOV/transit toll lanes planned from Loop 1604 to Stone Oak Pkwy., and tolls on all six main lanes (including the 4 currently toll-free lanes) north of Stone Oak Pkwy. to the county line.

Take ActionTexans Uniting for Reform and Freedom (TURF) is urging residents to reject the toll plan on Hwy 281 and demand the complete non-toll expressway option be advanced as the 'preferred alternative' for the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) that advances to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for final approval in 2014. The deadline for public comment is July 1 and comments can be submitted to US281EIS@alamoRMA.org.

Lumberton ISD Principal's Prayer Prompts Threats from Freedom from Religion Foundation

Posted June 24, 2013

Lumberton ISD is once again in the news. This time it is over a prayer that a Lumberton principal (more on what happened at the Lumberton graduation below) did at a Kindergarten graduation. The principal, Kevin Wing, is one of the best principals running one of the best schools in Lumberton. Wing asked the parents if they mind if he said a prayer for the safety of the kids over the summer. That was it. Fortunately, this Christian prayer incident is not likely to cause any anger in Lumberton, TX. In fact, he will probably get an thank you from many parents who would like to see more prayers in school to combat the moral decline that we have seen over the years in America. He certainly should not get in trouble. If a teacher can walk around the school with a Vote Obama shirt on and not get into trouble, and if a different teacher can ask students to wear Muslim Burqas and not get into trouble, then it would be discriminatory to punish this principal for a simple school prayer.

Ted Cruz Launches National Petition Against Gang of Eight's Bill

Posted June 21, 2013

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched a national petition on Thursday to stop the Senate Gang of Eight's amnesty bill and send Washington a "strong signal" of the grassroots opposition to the bill. 

"This is urgent," Cruz wrote in an e-mail to supporters. "We must stop this Gang of 8 immigration bill, which would give amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants with no guarantee of a secure border." 

"The Senate debate is in the final stages and we need to send Washington a strong signal of the overwhelming grassroots opposition to this amnesty bill from Americans across the country," Cruz explained.

Cruz urged supporters to share the petition with friends and to "act now--without delay--to help us defeat amnesty and stand for legal immigration!"
