Why St. Louis Tea Party Went to Ferguson To Shop

You can’t change the world in your living room.

That’s why a small band of (mostly) white people from (mostly) West County drove to Ferguson (and Dellwood) to shop tonight.

We targeted the small businesses that were hit hard by violence–violence committed (mostly) by out of town agitators, criminals, vandals, and hooligans.

We drove to Ferguson to make two statements with our actons: 1) Ferguson is OUR community, and 2) Ferguson is open for business.

I met Dellena. Dellena owns the 911 Beauty Salon on West Florissant in Dellwood. Her landlord got foreclosed on, which meant she lost her home, just before the riots. So she moved all her inventory from her house to the store. Then the riots happened, and they took her inventory.

God bless Dellena.

FED Chair Yellen’s Latest Speech Is A Shell Game With An Invisible Pea

By Lee Cary

Janet Yellen’s August 22, 2014 speech at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City Economic Symposium held in Jackson Hole, Wyoming was a verbal shell game with an invisible pea.

The first paragraph in Yellen’s speech began with this sentence: “In the five years since the end of the Great Recession, the economy has made considerable progress in recovering from the largest and most sustained loss of employment in the United States since the Great Depression.”

Then, the first paragraph ended with the admission that “…five years after the end of the recession, the labor market has yet to fully recover.”  

Many of the remaining 3,450 words she spoke refuted the claim of “considerable progress” and turned over multiple shells in search of the pea that explains why the labor market has not “fully” recovered. 

The pea remains invisible.

Gamescom: Shoot Racist Tea Partiers in ‘Battlefield Hardline’

In the upcoming first-person shooter Battlefield Hardline, players will shoot and kill racist anti-government Tea Party types, Gadsden flag and all.

Gamers got their first look at Battlefield Hardline’s singleplayer campaign, from developer Visceral Games and publisher Electronic Arts, at the Gamescom gaming convention in Cologne, Germany, on Wednesday, but the reveal included an unexpected partisan shot across the bow of conservative gamers. The Battlefield series, created by Swedish development studio DICE, has been largely apolitical since its first installment was released in 2002, but that appears to have changed with Visceral Games taking the lead on the latest release.

Chris McDaniel: I Beat Thad Cochran by 25,000 Votes

Six weeks after the primary runoff election, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is launching his formal legal challenge of the election results, saying the evidence is so conclusive that he will be calling for courts to recognize him as the true victor of the race rather than calling for a new election.

“Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling. We determined that of the Democrats that did cross over, 71 percent of them admitted they will not support the Republican in the general election. When you take those polling numbers and you go in and do the mathematical regressions, you can see that Chris McDaniel clearly won the runoff by 25,000 votes.”

“The short answer is we’re not asking for a new election,” Tyner continued. “We’re simply asking that the Republican Party recognize the person who won the runoff election.”

Eric Holder: I'm an Activist Attorney General and Proud of It

In an interview with Juan Williams, Attorney General Eric Holder said he is, indeed, an activist attorney general and proud of it.

"If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly accept that label," said Holder. "Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job. The responsibility of the attorney general is to change things [and] bring us closer to the ideals expressed in our founding documents."

Holder added that those who claim he runs an "activist civil rights division" and that he is "an activist attorney general--I'd say I agree with you 1000 percent and [I am] proud of it."

Contest targets exposing Texas government waste

While sensible economic and business regulatory policies have spared Texas from the grief past years have brought other areas, the Lone Star State is not without its challenges. Local government debt is a serious affront to taxpayers as also is government waste.

With that, the Texas Public Policy Action is sponsoring a Texas Government Waste Contest offering the public opportunity to identify and highlight egregious or frivolous expenditures/activities found at all levels of the state’s operations.

DHS: ‘Family Unit’ Apprehensions Up 493% on U.S.-Mexico Border

(CNSNews.com) – Statistics posted online by the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Customs and Border Protection (CBP) show that the number of “family units” apprehended at the U.S. border with Mexico has risen from 9,350 in 2013 to 55,420 in 2014 – an increase of 493 percent.

A spokesperson for the CBP told CNSNews.com that a “family unit” for the purposes of this set of statistics is “a parent traveling with a child,” and that the 55,420 total includes all adults and children who have been apprehended and categorized as a family unit.

The family unit statistics – posted in the same document that provides the number of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) crossing the border – show that the family units come from four countries: El Salvador (10,417), Guatemala (9,004), Honduras (30,368) and Mexico (4,545).

Ralph Hall Makes History…Will Texans Take Notice?

by

Perhaps one of the biggest upsets in May’s runoff’s elections was Rep. Ralph Hall’s loss to his Republican primary challenger, and former U.S. Attorney, John Ratcliffe.   Most news headlines note that Hall is the oldest sitting U.S. House member and the oldest House member in history to both serve and cast a vote.

He’s also one of extraordinarily long tenure as a public official, serving a total of 56 years.

But this race was of much greater significance to those who understand the structural political challenge Texans face at every level; entrenched incumbents protected by the party elite.

Since Texas became a state, Hall’s loss marked the first election in which a sitting Republican U.S. Representative from Texas failed to obtain his party’s re-nomination.

Stated differently, never has a sitting House member in Texas been defeated in the Republican primary by a challenger!

Lack of Competition Enabled “Re-purp-licans”

by

Both the March Republican primaries and May’s runoff elections hosted a wave of victories for conservatives, with a handful of traditionally strong incumbents losing bids for their own re-election, or for higher positions.

Michael Quinn Sullivan cited the unprecedented number of statewide officials that won’t be returning; Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, Railroad Commissioner Barry Smitherman and Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples.

In contested House seats, this cycle has seen huge gains for conservatives. Nothing was lost, and ground has been gained.

The run-offs gave Texans another legislative victory in Senate District 2.  Grassroots-leader-turned-citizen-candidate, Bob Hall, defeated liberal leaning Republican incumbent, Bob Deuell. (This race marked the second TFR challenger to defeat an incumbent senator this cycle; the third in two years!)
