Jihad against Egypt's Christians: The US must speak out

Posted August 22, 2013

In his recent book, "Fleeing Herod," the Australian writer James Cowan retraces the steps of the Holy Family's flight into Egypt following Joseph's dream warning him about Herod's intentions toward the infant Jesus.

Cowan admits in the prologue that current events in Egypt made him even more conscious of Egypt's history and "the millennia of knowledge embodied in its sands."

Cowan's guide on his journey is a fourth-century text written by a Coptic Pope, Theophilus of Alexandria, entitled "The Visions of Theophilus." Along the way he meets monks, nuns, pilgrims and the then-Coptic Pope.

Whether or not we believe the fourth century reference of Mary being under an Egyptian tree, Coptic belief is undeniable: "Egypt [is] central to the birth of Christianity."

Thus, Christians must be concerned about what is happening to Coptic Christians today.

Gallup: Unemployment Rate Jumps from 7.7% to 8.9% In 30 Days

Posted August 22, 2013

Outside of the federal government's Bureau of Labor statistics, the Gallup polling organization also tracks the nation's unemployment rate. While the BLS and Gallup findings might not always perfectly align, the trends almost always do and the small statistical differences just haven't been worthy of note. But now Gallup is showing a sizable 30 day jump in the unemployment rate, from 7.7% on July 21 to 8.9% today.

The Democrats' Anti-Gun Manual Exposed

Posted August 22, 2013

A shocking new report reveals a deliberate plan by Democrats to exploit incidents of gun violence to their advantage.  As Rahm Emanuel said, "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."  In other words, forget the facts of cases, the circumstances surrounding them, or even the victims themselves; just take advantage of circumstances and current events to push your agenda.  Or, as the manual puts it: "The most powerful time to communicate is when concern and emotions are running at their peak."

Regarding the issue of gun control, the Democrats are prepared; they published an 80-page manual titled "Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging" that instructs users on how to exploit the emotions resulting from horrific incidents to attack the National Rifle Association (NRA), supporters of the Second Amendment, and gun owners -- ways to take advantage of events to get around the constitutional right to bear arms.

Socialists Designed Obama's Credit Watchdog Agency

Posted August 22, 2013

Socialist activists and their front groups played a shockingly outsized role shaping and passing the monumental financial reform legislation that authorized the creation of President Obama's powerful consumer credit watchdog agency.

Their intimate involvement is revealed in a new book, "Financial Justice: The People's Campaign to Stop Lender Abuse," which offers a rare, if biased, behind-the-scenes look at the anti-bank movement's multimillion-dollar lobbying effort in support of the Dodd-Frank Act.

ObamaCare's Latest Outrage

Posted August 22, 2013

Health Reform: Thousands of UPS workers have found out what's actually in that Obama-Care package Democrats shipped out in 2010. Their company decided to drop coverage for spouses to avoid the law's added costs.

President Obama has been claiming lately that most of his signature law is already in place, and that all the fuss about delays and premium hikes is over parts of the law that don't go into effect until next year and are relevant only to the small share of uninsured.

"For the 85% to 90% of Americans who already have health insurance," he says, "they don't have to worry about anything else."

Tell that to the 15,000 UPS workers who recently learned that the shipping giant is dropping coverage for husbands and wives who can get insurance from another employer.

A chief reason for the change? The added costs ObamaCare is imposing, including the mandate that plans cover children up to age 26, its ban on lifetime spending limits, and the $65 in ObamaCare fees that will be imposed on every enrollee starting next year.

IRS Gets Rid of Obamacare Penalties

Posted August 22, 2013

Hey, guess what!! The Internal Revenue Service has decided to get rid of all the employer and self-employed penalties under Obamacare for those without insurance.

That’s right. The penalties are gone. Well . . . at least now they are called “shared responsibility payments.”

Not kidding.

George Orwell, call your office.

CDC Video: Environmental Justice Means 'Right' to Food, 'Healthy Homes'

Posted August 22, 2013

A new video posted to the "Healthy Homes" section of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website defines "environmental justice" as people having "a right" to "healthy homes" regardless of their "race, income, age, gender or nationality."

The video hosted by Dr. LaToria Whitehead also includes "sidewalks" and "transportation" in her concept of "environmental justice."

The video, titled "What Does Environmental Justice Mean?," elaborates on a whole series of material comforts people have a right to attain in order to achieve a healthy life.

14,828 days after their Super Bowl win, Obama hails Miami, but some Dolphins decline

Posted August 21, 2013

About a half-dozen champions have decided to absent themselves from being props for another political happy time.

Now, as for his White House absence today: "I don't belong there," Kuechenberg said. "I'll tell you that. Without being critical, I can just tell you I don't belong. It would be hypocritical of me to be there. I don't want to do that. I just don't believe in this administration at all. So I don't belong."

Langer said he's bothered by "some real moral compass issues in Washington," adding:

"I don't want to be in a room with those people and pretend I'm having a good time. I can't do that."
As for defensive tackle Fernandez: "I'll just say my views are diametrically opposed to the president's. Enough said. Let's leave it at that. I hope everyone enjoys the trip who goes."

OFA Rallies to Thank Ryan, Others for Immigration Reform Support

Posted August 21, 2013

President Obama’s campaign-turned-nonprofit, Organizing For Action, has stepped beyond party lines in its attempt to back the president’s preferred immigration reform plan. On Monday, OFA began sending members to districts held by Congressional Republicans wavering on the Senate’s amnesty-first immigration reform plan. Reps. Jeff Denham (R-CA), Joe Heck (R-NV), Dave Reichert (R-WA), Paul Ryan (R-WI), Aaron Schock (R-IL), and Dan Webster (R-FL) were targeted by OFA as key members.

Lamar Alexander Has No Conservative Ideals

Posted August 21, 2013

The media is finally realizing that there is a growing wave of conservative grassroots support to throw out the failed Republican leaders who currently waste conservative seats in Washington.  The latest flaccid Republican who is gaining a lot of attention is Senator Lamar Alexander.

Earlier today, Senator Alexander wrote a letter in the Tennessean to his constituents stating, “I stay true to my conservative ideals.  First, I’d like to give him credit for actually engaging in a dialogue with his constituents.  Unlike Mitch McConnell to his north, who is not man enough to defend his record, opting instead to engage his constituents through embarrassing smear ads, Lamar is attempting to make the case for another six years.  Unfortunately, he fails to move beyond platitudes and distractions.

Combating the Left’s Information Warfare Campaign

Posted August 20, 2013

Combating the Left's Information War CampaignThis article describes an Information Warfare Operationbeing orchestrated by the Left.  It is characterized by well-designed themes and memes, effective delivery, and advanced with MSM propagation. 

Not too confrontational, it uses fundamental American emotional buttons: family, kindness, and compassionate justice. It worms its way into the national psyche, one snippet at a time. The operation is funded, organized, and supported by the usual suspects; it’s coordinated with press organizations to carry the themes forward and propagate the message for as long as possible.

It starts with a question like this: “What are you going to do to stop the separation of families, for those of us that live in fear everyday due to unjust deportations?”

It’s a well-crafted question – a clever riposte for which we have not an effective parry. 

We are at war. Our efforts just do not match the opposition.

David Dewhurst Calls Police To Try & Free Relative

Posted August 22, 2013

ALLEN (CBSDFW.COM)  - Did the Lieutenant Governor of Texas try to use his title to persuade local police after a relative was arrested?

The Allen Police Department says the case was handled just like any other case.

On August 3rd, four hours after Ellen Bevers was arrested at an Allen grocery store for allegedly shoplifting more than $50 worth of items, the Allen Police Department received a call from Bevers’ uncle — Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst.

In an audio recording of the phone call CBS 11 News obtained from the Allen Police Department, Dewhurst could be heard saying, “This is David Dewhurst, the Lieutenant Governor of the State of Texas, and I want to talk to your senior officer who is there at your department right now.”

Konni Burton Racking Up Tea Party Endorsements

Posted August 20, 2013

Today, Konni Burton continued to establish herself as the clear alternative to Wendy Davis in announcing strong support from conservative activists across Texas, largely from inside Senate District 10.

Janna Easton endorsed Konni saying, “Konni Burton is one of the hardest workers in the conservative movement. I couldn’t be more excited about her run for SD10. Conservatives are united behind her, and we’re ready to win in March and fire Wendy Davis in November!”

Allan Solmon endorsed Konni Burton saying, “I’m proud to endorse Konni. As a personal friend and someone who’s been in the political trenches with her for a number of years, I can think of no one better to send to Austin to fight for Texas values.”

Toby Marie Walker endorsed Konni saying, “While Wendy Davis has been busy raising money in Washington D.C., buddying up to lobbyists and the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Konni has been hard at work on the campaign trail. This race won’t be bought by outside money but by voters motivated to defend the sanctity of life and economic freedom. That’s why I am proud to endorse Konni Burton for Senate.”

AFL-CIO to make major unionization push in Texas

Posted August 19, 2013

Texas was the very first state in the union to pass a “right to work” law making it illegal for union contracts to mandate that all of a company’s workers join a union or at least pay dues to one.

It did this in 1943, four years before Congress passed the Taft-Hartley Act, affirming states could pass such laws. Texas remains synonymous with Big Business conservatism today.

Nevertheless, the AFL-CIO apparently thinks the ground has shifted in the Lone Star State enough to make a serious organizing push there worthwhile.

Konni Burton Slams Wendy Davis on Abortion

Posted August 15, 2013

It’s time for Texans to take back the conversation about the right to life in Texas. Wendy Davis would like you to think her far-left crusade is about women’s rights, but in reality Wendy and her allies purposely ignore the thousands of women who can never be heard.

On the issue of life, there can be no question. Wendy Davis can try to raise her profile and dredge up D.C. dollars by defending the barbaric practice of late-term abortion, but that’s never going to reflect the values of Texas. What’s more, Wendy knows it. I’m ready to do battle with Wendy Davis on every issue, but I’m asking you to share the video below with your friends and family today. It’s important we inform Wendy Davis that Texans stand for life – not with Wendy. ~ Konni Burton

Empower Texans Releases Their Fiscal Responsibility Index Rating Texas State Legislators

Posted August 15, 2013

Empower Texans Must See Fiscal Responsibility Index RatingThe Fiscal Responsibility Index is a measurement of how lawmakers perform on size and role of government issues. Texans for Fiscal Responsibility uses exemplar votes on core budget and free enterprise issues that demonstrate legislators’ governing philosophy.

TEA Party 911 Editor's Note: This is an excellent tool to gauge how your State Representative or Senator rated on fiscal issues. An example is District 10 Representative Jim Pitts who rated an abysmal 29.7 out of a possible 100. If I was in District 10, I would be diligently seeking a replacement for Pitts.

See how your Representative or Senator rated at Empower Texans: http://www.empowertexans.com/index/
