GOP Moderates Push Back on Tea Party Spending Cuts

Posted August 12, 2013

Many tenured Republicans, particularly members of the House Appropriations Committee, have viewed Ryan's sweeping cuts as unworkable all along. When more than $4 billion in entirely new cuts came to the House floor in the form of an actual bill for funding transportation and housing programs, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, confronted shaky support from less ardently conservative Republicans and decided to pull the $44 billion package on July 31.

That sparked a frustrated outburst from the committee chairman, Rep. Harold Rogers, R-Ky. He called for abandoning the Ryan budget and starting bipartisan negotiations that would provide appropriators with "a realistic spending level to fund the government in a responsible _ and attainable _ way."

"Attainable" is code for something that can pass the Senate and get signed by President Barack Obama. That's rarely a recipe for tea party fun.

Interior Secretary: I don’t want any climate change deniers in my department

Posted August 12, 2013

Buried in a lengthy Washington Post article about President Obama’s environmental policy is an illuminating anecdote about just how debatable the administration views climate change — namely, not at all:

In an agency-wide address to employees Aug. 1, (Interior Secretary Sally) Jewell took the unusual step of suggesting that no one working for her should challenge the idea that human activity is driving recent warming. “I hope there are no climate-change deniers in the Department of Interior,” she said.

Obama Family Friend Cooperating with Probe of Chicago Corruption Scheme

Posted August 12, 2013

Dr. Eric Whitaker, a close friend of President Barack Obama, has admitted he is cooperating with federal investigators over a probe into a $433,000 kickback scheme at the Illinois Department of Public Health, an agency he once headed.

On August 9, James A. Lewis, the U.S. Attorney for the Illinois Central District, indicted Quinshaunta R. Golden, Whitaker's chief of staff at the Illinois Department of Public Health, on charges of conspiring to divert state funds into her own pockets and then attempting to cover it up.

Quinshaunta Golden is the niece of current U.S. Representative Danny Davis (D-IL) and is the 13th person indicted in the probe involving millions of dollars in state grants.

Of God, Guns and Borders: Cultural Divide Clears Path for Conservatives

Posted August 12, 2013

Conservatives seized on these shifts in 1994 and 2010, taking control of Congress and sweeping state houses across the country. In between those elections, however, establishment Republicans co-opted conservatives and the party drifted. It championed greater federal control of local schools, a new health care entitlement and vastly increased the size of government. It cozied up to big banks and supported a bailout of Wall Street. 

In 2008, the party nominated "centrists", one of whom had championed restrictions on free speech and higher taxes, the other who promoted the individual health insurance mandate that became the foundation of ObamaCare. Mitt Romney was seen as a creature of Wall Street and, as a result, millions of working-class voters stayed home on election day.

IRS agent: Tax agency is still targeting Tea Party groups

Posted August 9, 2013

In a remarkable admission that is likely to rock the Internal Revenue Service again, testimony released Thursday by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp reveals that an agent involved in reviewing tax exempt applications from conservative groups told a committee investigator that the agency is still targeting Tea Party groups, three months after the IRS scandal erupted.

In closed door testimony before the House Ways & Means Committee, the unidentified IRS agent said requests for special tax status from Tea Party groups is being forced into a special "secondary screening" because the agency has yet to come up with new guidance on how to judge the tax status of the groups.

McConnell re-election campaign manager 'holding his nose,' according to secret call

Posted August 9, 2013

Mitch McConnell’s campaign has been dinged by another secret recording, this one of his campaign manager, who says he is “holding his nose” on the job.

McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton, who previously served as Ron Paul’s campaign manager, made the remarks during a January phone call with Dennis Fusaro of the Reformed Theological Seminary, a former campaign aide to two-time presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Benton told Fusaro his reason for leading McConnell’s re-election effort is to benefit a run for the White House in 2016 by Ron Paul’s son, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.

Glenn Beck Thrashes Lindsey Graham's Idiotic Comments on Egypt

Posted August 9, 2013

Glenn’s blood hit the boiling point on radio this morning in reaction to some pretty remarkable audio from Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) about the crisis in Egypt. During a visit to Cairo earlier this week, the Senators sat down with CBS News and admitted that the country is “just days or weeks” away from “all out bloodshed.”

“Well, I was at the doctor early this morning because I thought I had a brain aneurysm last night,” Glenn said. “It was in the 5 o’clock hour, happened about 5:20, when Buck Sexton actually played the audio of Lindsey Graham on CBS News reporting on what their fact‑finding mission in Egypt found. Here it is:”

REPORTER: Are you alarmed by what you see happening in Egypt?

GRAHAM: Oh, my God. I didn’t know it was this bad. These folks are just days or weeks from all‑out bloodshed.

Yes, that was a senior United States Senator admitting he had absolutely no idea what was going on in Egypt.

“I can’t take it,” Glenn said disgusted.

"You had no idea, Lindsey," Pat asked. "Have a television set, do you?"

The Obama Administration’s War on the Constitution

Posted August 9, 2013

Reuters on Monday detailed how the Special Operative Division – a unit within the DEA comprising representatives of two dozen agencies including the FBI, CIA, NSA, Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Homeland Security – passes tips from wiretaps, informants and a database of telephone records to field agents to investigate and arrest criminals. Reuters reports that, although such cases rarely involve national security issues, the DEA agents using the tips are trained to “recreate” the source of the criminal investigation to conceal its true origin from defence lawyers, prosecutors and judges.

This is how the system works.

PHILLIPS: Get politicians' attention: Occupy the Capitol

Posted August 9, 2013

On September 9, every American who can get to Washington should be there with the intent of meeting with their Congressman and their Senators. If this leaderless event works, few if any will get to see their Congressman or Senators because there will be too many people to get in to see the politicians. 

For conservatives, this really is the end of the line. If the Republicans in the House of Representatives fold and do not defund Obamacare and then compromise on amnesty, then we will have lost.

If John Boehner raises his freshly laundered white flag of surrender, as he has already indicated he wants to do, America is finished.

There is one thing that politicians understand. That is the wrath of an angry electorate. 

If conservatives fail this time, there is no next time. 
On Monday, September 9, it is time for conservatives to occupy the Capitol.

Does White House Want To Say Who Lives Where In America?

Posted August 9, 2013

Nanny State: If any question remained about the Obama White House's appetite for running everyone's life from Washington, it should be settled now. This administration even wants to dictate neighborhood makeup.

Like your neighborhood? Don't get used to it. The Obama Department of Housing and Urban Development might decide it wants to dictate changes. HUD is, according to Fox News, considering "a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America's neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory."

The proposed rule, disclosed last month by HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan at the NAACP's convention in Florida, has been entered into the Federal Register.

But it can't become a regulation that carries the weight of law until after a 60-day public comment period. Should it get that far, it could be used to manipulate and manage the makeup of neighborhoods.

U.S. defense lawyers to seek access to DEA hidden intelligence evidence

Posted August 9, 2013

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Criminal defense lawyers are challenging a U.S. government practice of hiding the tips that led to some drug investigations, information that the lawyers say is essential to fair trials in U.S. courts.

The practice of creating an alternate investigative trail to hide how a case began - what federal agents call "parallel construction" - has never been thoroughly tested in court, lawyers and law professors said in interviews this week.

The exchanges, which are scheduled to begin operation on October 1st, will be the only place Americans can purchase health insurance using federal subsidies granted by President Obama’s signature healthcare reform law.

Ted Cruz: Media ‘in love’ with Hillary Clinton

Posted August 12, 2013

AMES, Iowa — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said Saturday that he thinks the mainstream media are “in love” with former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, but declined to say whether he backs the Republican National’s Committee’s threat to exclude NBC and CNN from the 2016 GOP primary debates if they don’t pull the plug on plans to produce films about her.

“I don’t think anybody is surprised to discover that the mainstream media are in love with Hillary Clinton. And indeed I would expect both of those movies to be released on Valentine’s Day,” Cruz told reporters.

Ted Cruz asks Iowa evangelical activists to text him their cellphone numbers

Posted August 12, 2013

AMES 08/10/13 – Take out your cellphones right now, Republican Ted Cruz told Christian conservatives in Iowa this afternoon.

"If you're willing to help tell the story about how freedom works, how it produces opportunity, I ask you to text the word 'growth' to 33733," he said.

Cruz, a born-again Christian who is considered a possible 2016 presidential candidate, watched as the crowd of about 1,000 dutifully sent the text, connecting their cellphone numbers to what he said is a call for a grassroots uprising.

"God bless the Family Leader. God bless Bob Vander Plaats," Cruz said, referring to the organizer of today's Family Leadership Summit. "What a tremendous voice for life, for marriage, for returning to our founding principles."

Sen. Ted Cruz Blasts Anti-Religious Freedom Ordinance

Posted August 9, 2013 ~ Texas Values

As we noted last week, outrage continues to build in San Antonio, in Texas, and across the nation about a proposed ordinance by the San Antonio City Council that would create an unprecedented attack on religious liberty, particularly for Christians. This week U.S. Senator Ted Cruz released a statement blasting the proposed ordinance and calling on Texans to stand up for their religious freedom:

“Any attempt to bar an individual from public service based on a personal religious conviction is contrary to the liberties guaranteed us under our constitution and should be emphatically opposed. It is encouraging to see so many Texans standing up to defend their religious freedoms in light of the misguided proposal put forth by the local city council.” – Sen. Ted Cruz.

We thank Senator Cruz for taking a bold stand against this unconstitutional proposal and for encouraging Texans to defend their fundamental rights. The proposed ordinance contains some of the most blatant and unprecedented violations of the religious freedom of Texans that we have ever seen. Any form of this ordinance is a major threat to the religious liberty of everyone in San Antonio. Read more.


Texas Tea Partiers Gunning For Gohmert to Primary Cornyn

Posted August 9, 2013

Louie Gohmert for Senate? That’s what a number of Texas tea-party activists are hoping for. They’re not happy with Senator John Cornyn, and Katrina Pierson, who serves on the Texas Tea Party Caucus Advisory Board, tells me she’s heard from a number of activists pushing for the outspoken East Texas congressman to challenge the senator.

And JoAnn Fleming, the executive director of East Texas–based Grassroots America We The People, says she’s hearing the same thing. She knows Gohmert personally and says she’s had numerous activists tell her she should ask the congressman to run.

“I’ve had people ask me to ask him,” she says. “That hasn’t diminished.”

Pierson and Fleming both told me that the grassroots activists they’re hearing from have numerous concerns with Cornyn’s record, but they’re especially frustrated that he withdrew support for Senator Mike Lee’s efforts to defund the Affordable Care Act in this fall’s continuing resolution. Fleming says that Cornyn’s opposition to Lee’s efforts will lose him votes in a potential primary.

Wendy Davis is Abortion Barbie #abortionbarbie

Posted August 7, 2013

The left is in a tizzy on twitter for my referring to pink shoes wearing Texas State Senator Wendy Davis as “Abortion Barbie.”

It sums her up perfectly. All the nation knows about Wendy Davis is that she is ignorant of the horrors of Kermit Gosnell, wears pink shoes, and filibustered legislation to save the innocent in Texas. She joined the long line of Democrats before her to oppose legislation to protect other people while using property rights arguments to do so.

The media would prefer to focus on her blonde hair, her great outfits, and her pink shoes than on the procedure she wants to protect. That procedure, late term abortion, is opposed by a majority of women and men.

Abortion Barbie fits perfectly and I hope that moniker haunts her on the campaign trail.

Third time's a charm: Texas lawmakers finally pass transportation funding bill

Posted August 7, 2013 ~ Terri Hall

It’s a wrap. After over 200 days in session this year, the Texas legislature finally agreed upon a transportation funding bill that will go to the voters for approval in November 2014. The Constitutional amendment would divert half of the oil and gas severance tax that funds the state’s emergency fund, or Rainy Day Fund, to roads, giving the highway department a potential boost of $1.2 billion annually. Lawmakers readily acknowledge it’s a stop gap measure since the agency needs $4 billion more per year.

The enabling legislation, HB 1, seeks to protect the Rainy Day Fund by having a select committee recommend a minimum balance to be maintained before any money can be diverted to roads - a number that must be approved by two-thirds of the legislature. If lawmakers can’t agree, then the committee’s number will take effect. It also requires the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to find $100 million in savings within its operations to apply toward the agency’s mounting debt. The diversion of the severance tax will sunset in 2025 unless the legislature votes to continue it.

Texas Legislature adjourns 3rd special session

Posted August 7, 2013

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Legislature ended its third special session Monday after passing a bill and a proposed constitutional amendment that would boost spending for roads and bridge.

Lawmakers in both chambers moved quickly to approve the only item on the agenda of the third special legislative session, which Gov. Rick Perry called last week.

A deal reached in the House could provide $1.2 billion a year for transportation by diverting half of the money currently flowing into the state's Rainy Day Fund. Because the reserve fund was created with a constitutional amendment, voters would have to give final approval in the November 2014 general election.

TX GOP Congressman Stalls Benghazi Probe!

Outrage Alert! 

Posted August 6, 2013

Filed 8.5.13 by JoAnn Fleming, Grassroots America

Grassroots America has learned from our friends in the Dallas area that Republican Congressman Pete Sessions is using his leadership position to prevent a floor vote on a Select Committee on Benghazi.  Members of the Dallas area TEA Parties have brought the issue up multiple times, but Rep. Sessions refuses to relent.

It is especially maddening to find out that Republicans in House leadership positions seem to be working as hard as the Obama Administration to keep the American people from the truth!

Seven hundred military special operations professionals have signed an open letter calling for the establishment of a House Select Committee to fully investigate the murders. Over three-quarters of the House Republican caucus (163) have joined the public call for a House Select Committee. Sadly, Speaker John Boehner's ally - Rep. Pete Sessions - has been using his position as Rules Chairman to prevent the resolution from even receiving a vote! The resolution has been stuck in Pete Sessions' Rules Committee since January!  Source:  See Conservatives move to force Boehner’s hand for Benghazi investigation, The Hill, July 22, 2013 http://thehill.com/blogs/global-affairs/terrorism/312539-conservatives-seek-to-put-pressure-on-boehner-with-60-foot-long-benghazi-petition

In the video below, Rep. Frank Wolf lays out the case for a Select Committee on Benghazi. Watch it, then call Pete Sessions!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_AZcJptxQk

 

Call Congressman Session's offices today and ask the questions "Why won't Rep. Sessions support a full investigation into the four Americans who were murdered in Benghazi?  Why won't Representative Sessions stand up for the grieving families who lost their loved ones as our government turned its back on them?"

Let Pete Session know that although you don't live in his district, you will support a challenger for Congressman Sessions if he is too cowardly to stand up for our military. Tell him to allow a floor vote on House Resolution 36 to authorize a House Select Committee on Benghazi!

Ted Cruz: I Need a 'Grassroots Army' to Defund Obamacare, Stop Amnesty

NAFTA Superhighway: Private toll operators vie for I-69 in Indiana

Posted August 6, 2013 ~ Terri Hall

Close on the heels of news that Interstate 69 (I-69) is underway in Texas, the Indiana Finance Authority and highway department (INDOT) has selected four private developers to submit proposals for a public private partnership (P3) on segment 5 of I-69 from Bloomington to Martinsville. The final selection is expected this fall.

I-69 was designated as high priority corridors (18) and (20) by congress in the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA). These high priority corridors became the conduit for global trade when NAFTA came on the scene. By 2005, congress identified more than 80 such corridors criss crossing America.

Video Shows Illegal Arrest & Perjury by Texas Judge Layne Walker and Jefferson County Sheriff Deputies

Posted August 2, 2013

Shocking corruption uncovered in Southeast Texas. The FBI is investigating after a secret video proves that Democrat State District Judge Layne Walker, his court law enforcement officers, and other officials in Beaumont, Jefferson County , TX committed a vast number of crimes including FALSE ARREST, PERJURY, THEFT, DESTRUCTION OF EVIDENCE. (see video below at end of article)

East Texas is Corrupt but this is especially shocking because this is our law enforcement and justice system conspiring together to break the law and put a man in jail! We are supposed to be able to trust them. Texas State Authorities need to step in as soon as possible and charge these public officials and remove the Judge from the bench. Furthermore, the false charges against Stephen Hartman must be dropped immediately. Can you imagine if there was no secret video? God help anyone else who has been wronged by this Judge who thinks he is above the law.

Finger Lickin’ Frauds - Senator John Cornyn

Posted August 2, 2013

John Cornyn went on radio yesterday with Chad Hasty (on twitter: @chadhastyradio) on Lubbock’s NewsTalk 790 AM KFYO. When asked why he took his name off Mike Lee’s letter about defunding Obamacare, John Cornyn said he did so because of a Congressional Research Service report on the implication of Mike Lee’s strategy.

There’s just one problem. John Cornyn took his name off the letter before the Congressional Research Service released its report. In fact, before Mike Lee’s office officially released the names on the letter, multiple sources in the Senate confirmed that Senator Cornyn removed his name after conversations with Senator Mitch McConnell’s office.

ABBOTT: Obama's scheme to take over Texas

Posted August 2, 2013

By Greg Abbott
The Washington Times

The Obama administration’s interference in Texas’ redistricting and voter-ID litigation does not protect voting rights. It protects the Democratic Party. Recall that just a few months ago, high-ranking Obama operatives launched a campaign to “turn Texas blue.” The administration’s foray into Texas voting rights litigation is just another page in that political playbook.

In redistricting, the Obama administration has aligned itself with Democratic state representatives and Democratic members of Congress who already are suing Texas. It is no surprise then that the legal position of President Obama’s attorneys seeks to improve Democratic candidates’ prospects. Of course, Mr. Obama’s attorneys conceal this partisan agenda with lofty rhetoric about minority voting rights. But it is no coincidence that every change to district lines supported by the administration benefits Democrats. Behind the empty allegations of racial discrimination lies one goal — helping Democrats in 2014.

Chris Matthews: Ted Cruz is a terrorist

Matthews had been comparing Cruz to former Wisconsin Republican Sen. Joseph McCarthy over the past few weeks based on his looks and demeanor. But Matthews introduced a new description into his attack on Cruz for his suggested tactic of threatening a government shutdown to stop Obamacare — “terrorist.”
