  • Fears over military training fester in Texas city

    BASTROP, Texas - Vicki Lehmeir said she was initially surprised that Gov. Greg Abbott put the Texas State Guard in charge of monitoring the U.S. military's Jade Helm 15 exercises this summer. Then again, Lehmeir, treasurer of the county Democratic Party, reconsidered. “Gov. Abbott is pandering to the paranoia in the state,” said Lehmeir, on Thursday morning. “And then he’ll probably complain about the cost, like he did at the border when those children were coming across.” Fear that the exercises represent the beginnings of a military-led takeover of the state, orchestrated by President Barack Obama, were all too real...

    Dr. James Dobson, who founded the highly influential groups Focus on the Family and Family Research Council and now runs Family Talk Radio, is warning that if the U.S. Supreme Court redefines marriage as analysts predict, the ruling will presage the “fall of Western civilization.” “I do not recall a time when the institutions of marriage and the family have faced such peril, or when the forces arrayed against them were more formidable or determined,” he writes in a letter distributed to his hundreds of thousands of supporters. “Barring a miracle, the family that has existed since antiquity will likely...

Verrilli's reply was, "It's certainly going to be an issue."

    It is becoming increasingly clear that realignment in the Anglican Communion is reaching new levels of intensity and speed as concern for the inroads of pansexual behavior by western pan Anglicanism provinces increases with greater stridency. Consider the following. In Melbourne, recently, the chairman of GAFCON, the Most Rev. Eliud Wabukala of Kenya, launched a new chapter of the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans and ripped the "cultural captivity" of North American Anglican Churches. He went on to say that a crisis is developing in the Church of England, which you can be sure Archbishop Justin Welby does not want to...

    One hundred-fifty years after Appomattox, many Southerners still won’t give up. One hundred fifty years ago, on April 9th, 1865, Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox Court House and the Union triumphed in the Civil War. Yet the passage of a century and a half has not dimmed the passion for the Confederacy among many Americans. Just three weeks ago, the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) appeared before the Supreme Court arguing for the right to put a Confederate flag on vanity license plates in Texas. Just why would someone in 2015 want a Confederate flag on their license...

Respect for all is at the heart of the Carolinian Creed, the code by which we agree to abide. Racist and uncivil rhetoric have no place at the University of South Carolina. We have taken appropriate actions to suspend a student and begin code of conduct investigations.

    At the simplest level, there are seven questions central to the debate over same-sex marriage that rarely if ever gain public review. I have written on them below, and what you read here has been refashioned for proper presentation before the United States Supreme Court when it reviews four cases on the matter April 28, 2015. 1. What is the Source for Unalienable Rights? 2. Is Marriage a Right or a Liberty? 3. How Does the Creator Define Human Sexuality? 4. God-given Rights or Human-defined Rights? 5. Is the Declaration of Independence Honored Anymore? 6. Can a Healthy Social Order...

    Thanks to brilliant tactics by gay activists, huge doses of corporate hypocrisy, tongue-tied politicians, and the silence of religious leaders -- religious liberty lost big battles in Indiana and Arkansas this week. Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote a column in The Washington Post deploring a "dangerous happening" of a "wave of legislation, introduced in more than two dozen states" that would "allow people to discriminate against their neighbors." For example, he said Indiana and Arkansas passed laws that would allow individuals to "cite their personal religious beliefs to refuse service to a customer." Incorrect. First, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act...

By Tuesday evening, a majority of presbyteries or regional governing bodies had voted to ratify an amendment to the constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), allowing but not requiring its pastors to perform same-sex weddings and its churches to host such rites.

The restrictions included that funds from the event could not go to groups that communicate their faith while helping others or “promote religious doctrine or instruction.” Funding for the non-profit pregnancy centers is vital to their ability to help pregnant women and babies. However, their purpose to minister to both the physical and spiritual needs of these women appeared to be restricted by Amplify Austin’s new policies. APRC has chosen instead to engage in its own...

    I am no longer a Republican. John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and their Democrat-lite, RINO Republican establishment have seen to that. They have betrayed their own constituents. They have actively turned against the American people – the very voters who granted them power to do good. Even before the gavel has sounded on the Republican-led 114th Congress, these treacherous cowards shamelessly, eagerly, it seems, squandered perhaps the one opportunity they had to stop, in his tracks, America’s first cultural Marxist, anti-American, palpably evil president.

The three sites — D.A.

Trey Martinez Fischer, D-San Antonio, left, leaves the U.S. Federal Courthouse, May 29, 2013, in San Antonio. (Eric Gay/AP) State Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer said at the Texas Democratic Convention that “GOP” stands for “gringos y otros pendejos,” the Houston Chronicle reported. The word “gringo” is sometimes used as a derogatory term to mean “white foreigner.” “Pendejo” can mean “asshole,” “fool” or “idiot.”

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,...

    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.

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,...

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.

    On Dec. 20, 1998, in the midst of his murderous speculative rampage against the currencies of Malaysia, Indonesia, South Korea, and other targeted Asian nations, George Soros appeared on CBS-TV’s “60 Minutes,” to explain and defend his behavior.

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...
