Gun Owners Of America: Gun Control to Pass if Reid Changes Filibuster Rule

Posted July 16, 2013

The Associated Press reports Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is pushing for rule changes to eliminate the 60-vote filibuster threshold in the Senate in order to "win confirmation for some of [President Obama's] nominees for posts overseeing workers' and consumers' rights." 

But the question raised by Gun Owners of America (GOA) is: how long will it be until gun control is heaved upon the American people if the filibuster is done away with?
It was a filibuster that put the Manchin/Toomey background check bill into the light long enough for Senators on both sides of the aisle to realize what was in it and reject it. 
The bill was defeated on April 17 because it fell six votes shy of 60. But if Reid is successful in changing the rules, then Senator Joe Manchin's (D-WV) gun control bill could "soon be brought up again and passed."

EXCLUSIVE: Feds admit improper scrutiny of candidate, donor tax records

Posted July 16, 2013

Justice has declined to prosecute any of the cases

The Treasury Department has admitted for the first time that confidential tax records of several political candidates and campaign donors were improperly scrutinized by government officials, but the Justice Department has declined to prosecute any of the cases.
Its investigators also are probing two allegations that the Internal Revenue Service “targeted for audit candidates for public office,” the Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration, J. Russell George, has privately told Sen. Chuck Grassley.
In a written response to a request by Mr. Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, Mr. George said a review turned up four cases since 2006 in which unidentified government officials took part in “unauthorized access or disclosure of tax records of political donors or candidates,” including one case he described as “willful.” In four additional cases, Mr. George said, allegations of improper access of IRS records were not substantiated by the evidence.

Senate fails to strike deal on filibuster, showdown looms

Posted July 16, 2013

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is acting as the ringleader of an informal group of senators who are looking for a way to avoid the nuclear option, said that they were "still working, still working away, still discussing options. ... We're going to continue to negotiate and continue to talk."

But other senators described the three-hour meeting as long-winded, repetitive and ultimately unsuccessful.

"Both sides had plenty of speakers. All the points were made - sometimes repeatedly," said Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., the chairman of the Senate Republican conference. "I don't think anyone's votes were changed. ... Right now it's kind of where we were going into the meeting."

"Nobody's willing to make any hard types of commitment at this point," Thune added.

Holder sees racism in Zimmerman, Martin, shooting

Posted July 16, 2013

The nation’s top law-enforcement officer told an African-American sorority Monday that he would lead an effort to change Americans’ beliefs and judgments about race, following George Zimmerman’s Sunday acquittal in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Attorney General Eric Holder blamed racial attitudes for the killing.

“We are resolved, as you are, to combat violence involving or directed at young people, to prevent future tragedies, and to deal with the underlying attitudes, mistaken beliefs and stereotypes that serve as the basis for these too-common incidents,” Holder told the long-scheduled meeting of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority.

Ted Nugent says lesson in Trayvon Martin incident: ‘Teach your children not to attack people’

Posted July 16, 2013

According to Nugent, the Zimmerman trial was just part of what he called ugly race relations, matching only those going back to the civil rights era.

“I’m 65 years old this year, Dennis, and I’ve never seen such ugly race relations since the white and black water fountains in Detroit went away,” Nugent said. “We were on an even keel. We were on the upgrade. I think racism for all practical purposes was gone five, six years ago and it’s back with a vengeance and it breaks my heart. But here’s the ultimate lesson, if everyone would take a deep breath — I hear a lot of squawking that parents go, ‘Well, that could have been my kid, that could have been my dead child.’ Well, here’s a little update for you: Teach your children not to attack people, thank you very much.”

“Irresponsible, not leadership — it’s like a community organizer gone bad,” Nugent added. “And again, I take no joy in criticizing my president.”

Zimmerman Not Guilty but...

DOJ to Investigate Zimmerman for Federal Civil Rights Charges

Posted July 15, 2013

On Sunday afternoon, the Obama Department of Justice announced that it would pursue investigation into George Zimmerman. 

That announcement came just hours after Zimmerman was acquitted for second-degree murder and manslaughter in the killing of Trayvon Martin, and within one day of the NAACP calling on the DOJ for an investigation.

Solyndra founder unlikely to face criminal charges, sources say

Posted July 15, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO -- The founder of bankrupt Fremont solar panel maker Solyndra will likely avoid criminal charges even if charges are brought against other former executives of the company, according to several people familiar with the investigation.

Christian Gronet founded the company in 2005 and was its CEO until 2010.

Making false statements to the U.S. government is a crime that generally carries up to five years in prison.

Durbin gets a Republican challenger in Doug Truax

Posted July 15, 2013

Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin has a challenger for his 2014 re-election campaign.

Republican Doug Truax, a West Point graduate who now runs a strategic risk consulting firm, will officially announce his candidacy on Monday.

"At West Point, one of the first things they taught us is that you change battlefield strategies if they continually fail," Truax said in a statement. "Business owners and families also know this but amazingly, in Illinois and Washington, career politicians like Dick Durbin continue to make the same tax-and-spend policy decisions without regard to results."

Konni Burton: Texas Grass-Roots Conservative Looks to Unseat Wendy Davis

Posted July 16, 2013

The 2014 race for Texas Senate District 10 is already exciting, likely due to the intense debate over the recent bill passed in the state legislature that bans abortion past 20 weeks and requires abortion clinics to have the same standards of care as other ambulatory surgery centers.

State Sen. Wendy Davis (D) was said to have become a “rising star” as a result of her “pink-sneakered” filibuster of the legislation. But will she be able to hold onto her seat if she continues her campaign for re-election?

Hoping to unseat Davis, thus far, are two Republicans, former state Rep. Mark Shelton, who lost to Davis by a slim margin last year, and Konni Burton, a conservative, grass-roots activist who has been a longtime leader within the Northeast Tarrant Tea Party.

Sen. Cruz: Current Immigration Bill Doesn’t Fix the Problem

Posted July 16, 2013

Addresses Black American Leadership Alliance, DC March for Jobs

WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) today spoke at the Black American Leadership Alliance’s D.C. March for Jobs to address concerns with the aspect of the Gang of Eight bill that would impose a penalty on U.S. employers for hiring U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents.

“One of the most egregious aspects of the gang of eight bill is its intersection with Obamacare, which penalizes businesses that hire a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident over an illegal immigrant,” Sen. Cruz said. “This is utterly and completely indefensible. If this bill passes it will increase unemployment: it will increase African American unemployment, Hispanic unemployment, youth unemployment and even legal immigrant unemployment.”

The senator continued, “This bill most hurts those who are struggling to climb the economic ladder. We need to fix this problem, we need to fix our broken immigration system we need to secure our borders now, we need to welcome legal immigrants and we need to uphold the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution.”

Sen. Cruz presented an amendment that would have fixed this issue by defunding Obamacare until there are no more individuals with RPI status. But the Senate Democrat majority blocked his request.

He also presented several amendments that would have strengthened border security measures; reformed the high-skilled temporary worker program; modernized, streamlined and expanded legal immigration; prohibited federal, state, or local entitlement benefits for those here illegally; and ensured that those in the U.S. illegally are not given a path to citizenship. Senate Democrats refused to allow a vote on any of these amendments.

On Impeachment Probe, Committee In Uncharted Waters

Posted July 16, 2013

A legislative committee charged with weighing the impeachment of University of Texas System Regent Wallace Hall is easing its way into a process that has relatively little historical precedent or statutory guidance.

At the end of the first special session, Speaker Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, issued a proclamation expanding the scope of the House Select Committee on Transparency in State Agency Operations to allow it to investigate whether or not articles of impeachment should be brought against Hall, an increasingly controversial figure on the UT board.

State Rep. Jim Pitts, R-Waxahachie, had filed a resolution that would have jump-started the impeachment process, but the House leadership decided to take a step back and have the committee look into the matter and decide how to proceed.

Greg Abbott officially announces he's running for Texas governor

Posted July 15, 2013

SAN ANTONIO — Republican Greg Abbott looked out Sunday on a downtown plaza full of supporters and saw an unbroken field to becoming Texas’ next governor.

On the anniversary of his greatest misfortune, the state attorney general proclaimed his highest ambition to serve as governor. He promised to represent average Texans, pledging a continuation of his principles on guns, grit and greatness.

“Just as I’ve been a voice for liberty and the Constitution, I’ll be a voice for you,” Abbott said.

Pro-life Victory in Texas: Senate Passes Late-Term Abortion Ban

Posted July 15, 2013

We knew this was coming for quite some time despite vile protestations and hours-long filibusters. Fox News has the details:

The Texas Senate late Friday passed tough new abortion restrictions after weeks of protests, sending them to Gov. Rick Perry to sign into law.

The vote came after weeks of protests and rallies drew thousands to the Capitol and made Texas the focus of the national abortion debate.

Republicans used their majority to pass the bill nearly three weeks after a filibuster by Democratic Sen. Wendy Davis and an outburst by abortion-rights supporters in the Senate gallery disrupted a deadline vote.

Called back for a new special session by Perry, lawmakers took up the bill again as thousands of supporters and opponents held rallies and jammed the Capitol to testify at public hearings.

In a statement released just after the vote, Perry said, "Today the Texas Legislature took its final step in our historic effort to protect life. This legislation builds on the strong and unwavering commitment we have made to defend life and protect women's health."

Texas Legislature Passes Pro-Life Bill; Pro-Aborts Promise Challenge

Posted July 15, 2013

The Texas State Senate followed up House passage of a pro-life bill that would ban abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy, and pro-abortion activists have promised a court battle after Gov. Rick Perry's expected signature on the new law early next week. As reported earlier by The New American, the legislature had already passed the law in late June, but Perry was prevented from signing the bill before the end of the legislature's first special session on June 25 because of the actions of a nearly lawless pro-abortion mob at the State Capitol.

A similar mob threatened proceedings on July 12, with Texas State troopers hauling away several unruly pro-abortion screamers who attempted to disrupt the debate. The Senate's Republican majority finally passed the bill just before midnight, with all but one Democrat casting their votes against the commonsense mother-and-child protection measure.

“Today the Texas Legislature took its final step in our historic effort to protect life,” announced Gov. Perry, who vowed to quickly sign the bill into law. “This legislation builds on the strong and unwavering commitment we have made to defend life and protect women's health.”

Pro-Life Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Running for Governor

Posted July 15, 2013

Pro-life Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott made it official today, saying he will run for governor and seek the GOP nomination to replace pro-life Governor Rick Perry, who is not planning to run again next year.

Prior to assuming the office of attorney general, Abbott was a justice on the Texas Supreme Court and was appointed by former Texas governor and President George W. Bush.

“When it comes to our freedom and our future, I will never – I will never stop fighting,” he said during an announcement in San Antonio.

A Changing of the Guard in Texas: Greg Abbott for Governor

Posted July 15, 2013

Today in San Antonio the biggest handoff in the Lone Star State since 2001 is taking place. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is announcing his 2014 run for Governor.

After his 2000 presidential victory, Texas Governor George W. Bush passed the reins to Rick Perry, a man who has taken the Texas Governor’s office from one of the weaker positions in the country to one of the strongest. As Rick Perry rides off into the sunset next year, the man who may be the most pivotal Attorney General in recent Texas history, Greg Abbott is stepping into the saddle in the race for Governor of the Lone Star State.

Attorney General Abbott has become an expert at challenging the Obama administration, filing suit against this regime to fight for the liberties of Texans and the rest of America as well. He has battled Obama’s over-reaching EPA whose war on fossil fuels could ruin not only the strong Texas economy, but that of other key energy producing states as well. The states that are helping to bring our economy back from the brink.

Abbott fought against Obamacare, filing suit against the law the day it was signed by the President. He has held Washington’s feet to the fire to protect the Second Amendment rights that we all hold so dear, especially in the face of a government whose menacing grip becomes tighter by the day.

Second Amendment Revoked: The Unbelievable Reason Why This Army Vet Can’t Own a Gun

Posted July 12, 2013

An Army veteran in Texas is fighting for his Second Amendment rights after learning that a misdemeanor pot conviction from 1971 has disqualified him from ever owning a gun.

Ron Kelly, who retired from the Army in 1993 after 20 years of service, was recently turned away when he tried to buy a .22-cal rifle at a Wal-Mart in Tomball, Texas, after a computerized background check flagged the 42-year-old arrest. The story was on the front page of the Houston Chronicle on Wednesday.

Kelly said he had forgotten about his minor pot violation from high school — the federal government, on the other hand, has not.

The Army vet spent one night in jail and was given one year of probation. Though he didn’t realize it at the time, he was also apparently stripped of his Second Amendment rights for a lifetime.
