INTERVIEW WITH A WHISTLEBLOWER: THE SPIRIT OF RESISTANCE

Posted July 17, 2013

Matthew Hutcheson, famed 401(k) fiduciary expert, was convicted at trial of federal wire fraud charges in April, 2013.   Many believe, and evidence strongly suggests, that Hutcheson’s federal charges were brought about as a direct result of his whistleblowing activities regarding a “skim machine” at the Department of Labor (DOL). Previous articles examined in depth Hutcheson’s whistleblowing and subsequent retributive prosecution at the hands of Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ). 

Hutcheson’s prosecution is just one example of the administration’s merciless war on whistleblowers. It is unfortunately part of a wider pattern of extreme measures being directed by Attorney General Eric Holder against whistleblowers and others deemed to be enemies of the Obama White House. Hutcheson recently agreed to be interviewed in an effort to fully explain the events surrounding his whistleblowing and subsequent prosecution.

GOP to confirm 7, Obama to change 2 in deal averting 'nuclear option'

Posted July 17, 2013

GOP senators agreed to drop their filibusters against Richard Cordray, nominated to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; Thomas Perez, Obama's nominee for Labor secretary; and Gina McCarthy, who is to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, among others. In exchange, Senate Democrats and the Obama administration agreed to replace the two National Labor Relations Board members that the president appointed during a disputed Senate recess with new nominees who are to be fast-tracked.

The lynchpin of the agreement, expected to be completed and announced Tuesday afternoon, was a joint Democratic-Republican decision to put off any attempt to permanently resolve the conflict that led them to the confrontation. Under this accord, Republicans retain the right to filibuster future Obama nominees, and Democrats maintain the threat to curb the use of filibusters if they judge any GOP blockade to be unreasonable or unwarranted.

We The People

Does “We The People” still Represent Political Power?

Posted July 17, 2013

Our Constitution begins with those words saying that the people of the United States do ordain and establish the Constitution. It does not say “We the State Legislatures” or “we the politicians” or “we a handful of important people”. A little reading of history tells us that the Constitution was conceived and written by people acting without the consent of a legislative body and then when written the Constitution was ratified by a vote of the people of each state and not the state legislators.

Clearly our entire federal government is a concept developed and established by the people of the time. The question I ask here is “Does this enormous power of the people to control their own lives still exist and if so how can it be utilized?” Have we irretrievably given this power to federal and state representatives?

Baby Shot In Stroller Mod1

Where is the justice?

Posted July 17, 2013

By Antonio Wes t~ You won't recognize me. My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two teens who were attempting to rob my …mother, who was also shot. A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick GA determined the teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty…too bad I was given a death sentence for being innocent and defenseless.

My family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder was not ruled a Hate Crime. Nor did President Obama take so much as a single moment to acknowledge my murder.

Colorado town considers licensing bounty hunters to shoot down drones

Posted July 17, 2013

The tiny town of Deer Trail, Colo. — barely more than a wide spot on Interstate 70 about 55 miles east of Denver, population 546 — is considering an ordinance that would authorize licensed bounty hunters to shoot down unmanned aircraft violating its “sovereign airspace.”

A six-page petition circulated by a resident says that the threat of surveillance from drones — regardless of who is piloting them — is a threat to “traditional American ideas of Liberty and Freedom” enjoyed by Deer Trail’s “ranchers, farmers, cowboys and Indians, as well as contemporary citizens.”

Therefore, drone incursions are to be seen as acts of war.

12 states sue EPA over agency's alleged 'sue and settle' tactics

Posted July 17, 2013

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt and the attorneys general of 11 other states sued the Environmental Protection Agency Tuesday, demanding that the agency turn over documents the states allege will show the agency cooperates with environmental groups as part of a "sue and settle" legal strategy to develop regulations.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City, alleges that binding consent decrees between the EPA and environmental groups that have sued the agency over the years have led to new rules and regulations for states without allowing their attorneys general to defend their interests and those of its businesses and consumers.

Why Does the AARP Hate Seniors?

Posted July 17, 2013

We know the AARP is typically left-leaning and sided with the Obama Administration on Obamacare and other policies that will wind up hurting seniors.

But now it seems they’re siding with the far-left environmental movement to put people out of work and raise energy prices — something that has a direct effect on seniors with fixed incomes.

The AARP and Sierra Club worked together to stall nuclear energy legislation in Iowa. They claimed the legislation would hurt seniors when, in reality, the legislation would have incentivized low cost nuclear energy production in Iowa.

DOJ Asks Civil Rights Groups, General Public for 'Tips' on Zimmerman

Posted July 17, 2013

On Monday afternoon, the US Department of Justice appealed to civil rights groups and the general public across the country for “tips” on George Zimmerman in their pursuit of potential federal civil rights charges against the just-acquitted defendant in the Trayvon Martin killing. The DOJ actually went so far as to set up an e-mail address to allow such tips: Sanford.florida@usdoj.gov. The email address is slated to go operational by the end of the week.

GOP Rep: Zimmerman Was Acquitted, 'Get Over It'

Posted July 17, 2013

"Get over it." That's the message from a Republican congressman to the protests over George Zimmerman's acquittal in the murder trial of Trayvon Martin.  Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) also said that the House might need to take a look at the Justice Department's actions if they needlessly pursue federal charges against Zimmerman.

Blacks benefit from Florida ‘Stand Your Ground’ law at disproportionate rate

Posted July 17, 2013

African Americans benefit from Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law at a rate far out of proportion to their presence in the state’s population, despite an assertion by Attorney General Eric Holder that repealing “Stand Your Ground” would help African Americans.

Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.

Nonetheless, prominent African Americans including Holder and “Ebony and Ivory” singer Stevie Wonder, who has vowed not to perform in the Sunshine State until the law is revoked, have made “Stand Your Ground” a central part of the Trayvon Martin controversy.

Stevie Wonder Boycotting Florida Following Zimmerman Verdict (Video)

The singer refuses to perform in the state until its Stand Your Ground law is "abolished."

Stevie Wonder won't be performing in Florida anytime soon.

In the wake of the George Zimmerman acquittal, the singer said he would not be performing in the Sunshine State until its Stand Your Ground law is "abolished." He also said he would not be performing in any other state that recognizes the law, which some say contributed to Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012.

Hillary Clinton: George Zimmerman verdict brought ‘deep heartache’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke about the “heartache” of the Trayvon Martin case in D.C. Tuesday evening while speaking to an African-American sorority group.
“My prayers are with the Martin family and with every family who loves someone who is lost to violence,” she said in an almost 30-minute speech. “No mother, no father, should ever have to fear for their child walking down a street in the United States of America.”

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.

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.”

Transparency Committee Goes Behind Closed Doors

July 17, 2013 by

In the coming weeks, the Texas House Select Committee on Transparency in State Agency Operations will be meeting in a closed-door session to begin their witch-hunt impeachment against a university regent accused of… seeking greater transparency. And, quite possibly, looking into cases of legislative abuse or corruption. Oddly, legislators don’t want anyone asking questions about that.

According to Article 3, Section 16, of the Texas Constitution, “The sessions of each House shall be open, except the Senate when in Executive session.” Yet inexplicably the Texas House’s Rules allow committees to meet in private.

Transparency in operations might be their name, but apparently the committee isn’t going to take it as their operating imperative in the quest to silence those investigating potential corruption and fiduciary mismanagement.

Let’s be clear about the House’s witch-hunt charges.

Rep. Pitts apparently doesn't want anyone being allowed to investigate possibly unethical behavior by lawmakers and university officials...

State Rep. Jim Pitts – a moderate, anti-transparency Republican who serves as Speaker Joe Straus’ chairman of the House Appropriations Committee – filed impeachment charges last month against University of Texas Regent Wallace Hall. It appears Mr. Pitts and other crony-insider legislators are very nervous about the kinds of questions Mr. Hall has been asking in his role as a regent.

Republicans Surrender

Posted July 17, 2013

Senate Republicans, led by Mitch McConnell, have given up the filibuster for executive nominations. Under a deal struck, the Democrats will not deploy the nuclear option, but the Republicans will let the President fill a number of positions the GOP has been blocking. Among the positions will be the ever important National Labor Relations Board, which has pursued a disastrous anti-free market agenda.

As Senator Ted Cruz noted, the GOP preserved the right to surrender in the future. What he means is that the GOP folded, but kept the appearance of still having a filibuster for executive nominations in place.

Until the GOP filibusters other executive nominees the President wants. They will then either cave again or see the nuclear option then.

Wendy 'Kermit Gosnell' Davis

Wendy “Gosnell” Davis – Pro-Abortion State Senator from Texas

Posted July 17, 2013

Texas State Senator Wendy Davis received fawning national media attention for her pro-abortion filibuster which ran out the clock in the 83rd legislative session in Texas. Davis, holding views similar to convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell, believes that killing viable babies in the womb is a fundamental right for women. Her extreme pro-abortion stance flies in the face of the majority of Texans who are pro-life.

Wendy Davis now has an opponent for State Senator in District 10. Meet Konni Burton


How Pro-Lifers Beat the Pro-Abortion Mob in Texas: An Eyewitness Account

Posted July 17, 2013

When the Texas State Senate passed HB2 on Friday night, banning abortions after 20 weeks (when pre-born children have been scientifically proven to feel pain) and instituting regulations on abortion facilities that will bring them up to par with other surgical centers across the state, the scene outside the Senate chamber was chaotic. Abortion rights activists had descended upon the state capitol for a protest that became about much more than just one bill. Even Occupy Austin had joined the fray for demonstrations that, as our team witnessed, went far beyond the control of Planned Parenthood and NARAL.

The crowds started gathering very early in the morning, with some people lining up for access to the Senate gallery before 5 AM. The building became a sea of orange shirts (abortion activists) and blue shirts (pro-lifers). The abortion activists had come to the capitol ready for a fight.

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.

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.
