Arizona Fighting Back

The Republican establishment in D.C. continues to froth and fret over Obama’s presidential power grabs.  Yet they seem determined to remain mired in the good-old-boy muck, where any thoughts of corrective measure are quickly stifled.  Protecting their positions and covering their aft quarters are the rule of the day. That is how things don’t work inside the beltway.  Outside that rarefied atmosphere, American people are taking action on their own to thwart Emperor Bar’aq in his march to the throne.  Beginning where else but that 48th state, Arizona. As reported in The Journal by high school senior and Chairman of … Continue reading

  From Breitbart: An Islamic Tribunal using Sharia law in Texas has been confirmed by Breitbart Texas. The tribunal is operating as a non-profit organization in Dallas. One of the attorneys for the tribunal said participation and acceptance of the tribunal’s decisions are “voluntary.” Breitbart Texas spoke with one of the “judges,” Dr. Taher El-badawi.

SC Proposes 2A Education in Classrooms

From WMBF News: Bill to bring second amendment education to classrooms A proposed bill is looking to change the zero-tolerance policy South Carolina schools have toward guns by requiring specific second amendment curriculum. “The second amendment should be freely debated in schools and instead the second amendment is being squelched in our schools,” said Rep. Alan Clemmons, R – Horry County. Rep. Clemmons said he first thought of the idea after hearing about the Summerville student who was punished for turning in a fictional story about shooting his neighbor’s dinosaur. The Second Amendment Education Act of 2015 would give students … Continue reading

Rick Perry’s Immigration Record

A hard line at the border, a softer touch in Austin From the Washington Post: Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s ongoing deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops along the Rio Grande may be helpful in his second try for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. The move also continues a distinctively Texan balancing act on immigration that Perry has been maintaining for well over a decade. The question is whether Perry represents the future of his party on immigration — or whether his nuanced positions on the issue will again become a liability in national politics. “It takes a very skilled … Continue reading

More Libs Lend Support to Governor Rick Perry

From TPNN and Newsmax:                 Liberal legal scholar and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz, a Democrat, weighed in on Travis Country Texas’ belligerent drunk District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg’s indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Friday. Dershowitz, who admitted he is not a supporter of Rick Perry politically, told Newsmax TV   that Democrat Lehmberg’s attempt to settle political disputes by issuing an indictment is “what happens in totalitarian societies” and is “reminiscent of the old Soviet Union.” “The two statutes under which he was indicted are reminiscent of the old Soviet Union — … Continue reading

Welcome to the Executive Dictatorship

By Ben Shapiro:   The Constitution is dead. Long live the executive dictatorship. There is almost nothing the president of the United States cannot do. This week, we found out President Barack Obama’s IRS not only targeted conservative nonprofit applicants with impunity but then destroyed the emails that could have illuminated the process behind such targeting. Meanwhile, the attorney general – the executive officer charged with fighting government criminality – continues to stonewall an independent prosecutor, maintaining along with his boss that there is not a “smidgen of corruption” in the IRS. On the southern border, Immigration and Customs Enforcement … Continue reading

Texas Announced Spending on Border Security

From GregAbbott.com: AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The state’s Republican leadership has authorized the Texas Department of Public Safety to spend about $1.3 million per week to fund operations to fight what they describe as a surge of illegal immigration along the Texas-Mexico border, the GOP leaders announced Wednesday evening. Governor Rick Perry, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and House Speaker Joe Straus said in a joint statement that spending on the “law enforcement surge operations” comes as the result of “the absence of adequate resources to secure the border.” The surge would continue until year’s end. Last week, Texas Attorney General … Continue reading

Jindal Uses EO to Withdraw from Common Core

From Politico: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal issued executive orders Wednesday to withdraw the state from the Common Core standards and federally subsidized standardized tests, defying his state legislature, his superintendent of education and the business community, but endearing himself to tea party activists across the country who could be influential in early primary states if he chooses to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. “We want out of Common Core,” Jindal said at a press conference. “We’re very alarmed about choice and local control of curriculum being taken away from our parents and educators. It is never too … Continue reading

Texans Petition Governor Perry on Border Crisis

From Breitbart: Activist Texans are petitioning Texas Governor Rick Perry to call a special session of the Legislature to deal with the growing crisis on the Texas border with Mexico. The petition asks Gov. Perry to bring the Texas Legislature back into a fourth special session to “develop and fund a border and port security plan utilizing state and local law enforcement.” Over the Father’s Day weekend, many Texans gathered in a Facebook discussion thread to discuss the Texas Border Crisis and look for a solution. A conclusion of the discussion was that if the federal government was not going … Continue reading

A Border Patrol Agent Speaks Out

Dennis Michael Lynch went to south Texas last week and spoke with several agents. Here’s his interview with one of them. Last week, I visited South Texas for the second time in two years.  Once again, I was blown away with the lack of border enforcement.   Although I must admit, the situation is now ten times worse than it was when I visited in 2013. I am constantly receiving messages from Border Patrol Agents who want to share information.   During my trip last week, I met with three agents from various sectors.  Each told me similar stories which send shivers down … Continue reading

To Save a Mouse, Forest Service Cuts Off Water Access in New Mexico

From InfoWars & The New American: Although it hasn’t reached Bundy levels of attention, leaders of a rural southern New Mexico county are bravely pushing back against a federal land grab of their own. In Otero County, New Mexico, the federal Forest Service has fenced off a 23-acre section of land, preventing a rancher’s cattle from getting to a watering hole located on the tract. Earlier this week, the county commission voted unanimously (with one commissioner absent) to empower the sheriff to open a gate, making a way for the cattle, some 200 in number, to get to the water. … Continue reading

Even the CA Cattle Are Moving to Texas

From Breitbart: The severe drought in California has created a problem for cattle ranchers, many of whom are selling their herds across state lines. Reuters reports that as many as 100,000 cattle have left the state in the past four months alone. Nearly half of those, about 47,000, have headed to Texas. The rest will primarily go to Nebraska and Nevada. The problem in California is the drought, which has caused the cost of cattle feed to spike. With feeding their herds no longer profitable, ranchers have little choice but to sell. Most of the animals will head to slaughterhouses … Continue reading

Obama Proposes Tolls on Interstate Highways

From Breitbart, by The Hon. Chuck DeVore, Vice President of Policy at the Texas Public Policy Foundation : As with many federal accounts, the Highway Trust Fund is running on empty. Refilled with the 18.4-cent per gallon gas tax and disbursed by politicians and bureaucrats in Washington, the federal highway fund faces a $63 billion shortfall through 2018. Texas gets $2-3 billion per year from the fund which goes towards the roughly $7 billion in yearly Texas Department of Transportation expenditures. A shortage of funds tends to concentrate the mind—which is why the White House just proposed lifting an old federal … Continue reading

Connecticut Dems Want Milk Control

David Zoni and Roberta Willis and state Sen. Catherine Osten say the proposed legislation aims to control childhood obesity. As Foxnews.com reports, the bill would set stringent standards. It reads: No child day care center, group day care home or family day care home shall provide milk with a milk fat content greater than 1 percent to any child 2 years of age or older under the care of such … Continue reading

Florida Pop-Tart News

My eyes are welling with tears, and my chest is swollen with pride for my state, as I share this momentous news with our faithful readers. Please, read on.

The Senate sponsor, Sen. Greg Evers, had a simple reply: It would prevent situations “where you chew a Pop-Tart into the shape of a … Continue reading

Supreme Court Upholds Michigan Law That Bans Affirmative Action

As lefty heads explode… “It’s a 6-2 decision to end discrimination which is what Affirmative Action Is” says Radio Talk Show Host and Fox Contributor David Webb in a recent debate with Emily Tisch Sussman hosted by FNC’s Bill Hemmer. The reality is that the SCOTUS ruled that States  and their voters have the right to decide what discrimination is or is not. Further, it is absurd to claim that certain groups are more equal than others in this country. Nationwide, we have blacks elected as Governors, Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, State and Federal Senators and Congressmen.  We have blacks serving … Continue reading

NY Following CT’s Lead in Defiance of Gun Laws

From IJ Review: Gun Control Fail: New York’s ‘Assault Weapon’ Registration Is Loudly Misfiring As Deadline Nears By April 15th, any New Yorker that owns an “assault weapon” is to have registered their gun, per the requirements of the New York SAFE act passed last year. But it’s looking more and more like a tiny percentage of New Yorkers are actually doing it. While the state of New York has not released actual firearms registration numbers, the rumors of registrations in the 3,000-5,000 range mean that 99% of those affected gun owners are refusing to comply with the law. Furthermore, … Continue reading
