  • Project Veritas' O'Keefe: Gov. Cuomo Wants to Run Group Out of NY

    Newsmax ^ | Thursday, 23 Jan 2014 05:13 PM | Steve Malzberg
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to run the conservative activist group Project Veritas out of the state, its founder James O'Keefe believes. "We got a subpoena over the last week from the Board of Labor and they're asking for every single financial transaction over the last three years," O'Keefe told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "I'll be happy to cooperate but there's some funny business going on, especially when there's so much corruption in the state of New York and they're going after my organization and compelling me to give them every transaction.

  • GOP Myths About Conservative Candidates

    Breitbart ^ | 13 Jan 2014, 9:35 AM PDT | Mike Flynn
    The pundit class and the GOP establishment currently are engaged in massive "concern trolling" over the possibility that Republican voters will elect conservatives in party primaries. Karl Rove, the US Chamber of Commerce and other special interests have vowed to spend whatever it takes to prevent citizens from nominating the "wrong" candidates. Setting aside the conceit that these interests know better than voters who should represent them, are these concerns even valid? The establishment's argument is based on three things: 1) Rep. Todd Akin (MO), 2) Sharron Angle (NV), and 3) Christine O'Donnell (DE). Granted, these campaigns were train wrecks,...

    WASHINGTON — In a surprise move, Representative Steve Stockman of Texas, a conservative, filed just before the Monday evening deadline to challenge Senator John Cornyn, two-term incumbent, in next year’s Texas Republican primary. Mr. Stockman’s move against Mr. Cornyn, the second-ranking Senate Republican, offers the potential for yet another ideological showdown in the 2014 Republican Senate primaries.

    Just got the scoop from my guy who works at Bryan Mound (Strategic Petroleum Reserve). As you may know, the largest reserve site in the U.S. is located a few miles from where I work in Freeport. It hold 200+ million barrels of oil. They got a visitor from Washington D.C. authorizing the release of 80-90 million barrels across all 4 sites in the U.S. It will be sold to Exxon Mobil for the purpose of flooding the market to bring down gas prices (temporarily). Just in time for the election. The president can do this without Congress. What an...

    Reporting from Washington— The Supreme Court granted an emergency appeal Friday night from Texas Republicans, putting on hold a redistricting map drawn by judges that would give Democrats a good chance to pick up at least three seats in the next Congress. In an unusual move, the justices announced they would schedule special arguments on Jan. 9 to decide whether Texas and other Southern states may proceed to hold elections under new redistricting plans that have not been approved under the Voting Rights Act.

Communion on the Moon: July 20th, 1969 (This is an article by Eric Metaxas) Forty years ago two human beings changed history by walking on the surface of the moon.

    Think the metal detectors and other ramped-up security plans for the Texas Capitol will keep out unlicensed guns? Think again, officials said Wednesday. Under current state law, so-called "long guns" — rifles, shotguns and the like — will remain legal in the domed landmark if they are carried openly, in a non-threatening way. And, under an exemption approved Tuesday as a part of a new security plan, Texans with a concealed-handgun license will be able to take their pistols into the statehouse as well.

    EDINBURG — As wrongful death cases go, the one that almost predictably followed the fatal fall of construction worker Antonio Rivas in McAllen in May 2002 was unremarkable in every respect but one. A lawsuit against the company that employed Rivas was quickly filed by lawyers from the Watts Law Firm on behalf of Rivas' widow, Maria Zuniga, and his aging mother, Cayetana Rivas, who lived across the Rio Grande in a small border village. In August 2003, the case was settled for $1.8 million, but that did not end the matter. Now pending in Hidalgo County is another suit,...

    In a recent survey conducted by the Texas Center for Public Policy Research, 76 percent of registered voters support a state law requirement to show a photo identification to vote in an election. These results are consistent with other surveys taken by the Government Department at the University of Texas showing 69 percent of Texans in favor of Voter ID, and a Rasmussen Poll showing support as high as 88 percent. While opponents to Voter ID claim the requirement is divisive and partisan, the TCPPR survey finds broad support for Voter ID even among self-identified Democrats.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - In the chaos of an early morning assault on a remote U.S. outpost in eastern Afghanistan, Staff Sgt. Erich Phillips' M4 carbine quit firing as militant forces surrounded the base. The machine gun he grabbed after tossing the rifle aside didn't work either. When the battle in the small village of Wanat ended, nine U.S. soldiers lay dead and 27 more were wounded. A detailed study of the attack by a military historian found that weapons failed repeatedly at a "critical moment" during the firefight on July 13, 2008, putting the outnumbered American troops at risk of...

A day after the Senate overwhelmingly approved the measure, the House passed it Friday on a 307-97 vote. (See related article.) Mr. Obama said the legislation gives the government much greater power to regulate tobacco "truly defines change in Washington." The president spoke in the Rose Garden Friday and promised to sign the bill. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Thursday that her agency looked forward to implementing it.

    NRSC Set To Back Specter This snippet from the Washington Post's overview of Arlen Specter's candidacy stuck out at me: Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, has written a letter to fellow Republicans asking them to support Specter. "While I doubt Arlen could win an election in my home state of Texas, I am certain that I could not get elected in Pennsylvania," Cornyn wrote. "I believe that Senator Specter is our best bet to keep this Senate seat in the GOP column."

    HCR 50 Reiterates Texas’ Rights Over Powers Not Otherwise Granted to Federal Government AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. “I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights...

    JUDGES should interpret the Constitution according to other nations' legal "norms." Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts. The United States constitutes an "axis of disobedience" along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq. Those are the views of the man on track to become one of the US government's top lawyers: Harold Koh.

    I just ran into Patrick Rose at the gym. What a sniveling, worthless, nothing-of-a-man that guy is. I asked him if he knew Leo Berman and was familiar with House Concurrent Resolution No. 50. He looked at me with incredulity and answered me in a condescending tone. He told me "You State Sovereignty people are insane. The State of Texas derives its power from the Federal Government and not the other way around."

    IF General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed. Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses. Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.

    CORPUS CHRISTI — A group that wants the Nueces County Republican Convention declared illegal sued local party leaders and others this week, saying the elected delegates should be barred from participating in the national convention. Visiting Judge Richard Terrell on Friday denied a request from the group to grant a temporary restraining order that would have kept the national delegates from attending next week's Republican National Convention in Minnesota. About 40 people walked out of the Nueces County Republican Convention on March 29, with some accusing local party leaders of violating several rules, including illegally seating delegates. The group conducted...
