The full United States House of Representatives has passed a vote declaring United States Attorney General Eric Holder to be in criminal contempt of Congress for not releasing documents in the fast and furious gun walking program that led to the death of federal border patrol agent Brian Terry. Holder will now be prosecuted and will have to face a trial. Will the head of the Department of Justice soon be arrested and face jail time?
The Supreme Court has allowed Obamacare's individual mandate as a TAX
President Obama LIED to America when he told us that Obamacare was not a tax in any way.
He then turned around and argued to the United States Supreme Court that the individual mandate and penalty for not getting healthcare was a tax and therefore constitutional.
ObamaTAX via Obamacare ...... this might be JUST the right Slap in the face that America Needs to wake up and VOTE OUT OBAMA
WAKE UP AMERICA!
We are not only DROWNING in Debt, but not we have seen Obama impose the BIGGEST tax increase in AMERICAN HISTORY
Obama MUST BE DEFEATED in the November Election!!
Now more than ever we MUST also elect strong, non-compromising, conservatives to the US House and US Senate who will FIGHT TO REPEAL Obamacare!
We can help turning things around in the Senate by electing Ted Cruz to the US Senate!
The Supreme Court has allowed Obamacare's individual mandate as a TAX
ObamaTAX via Obamacare ...... this might be JUST the right Slap in the face that America Needs to wake up and VOTE OUT OBAMA
Now my focus has shifted to the US Senate race. This race is very important. It is a runoff election between David Dewhurst and Ted Cruz. The Runoff Election Day is July 31st, 2012.
Texas MUST elect Ted Cruz for US Senate July 31st!
Let me first say that I do not hate David Dewhurst or think he is a liberal or a bad guy. I hope that no David Dewhurst supporters take this article the wrong way. There are two men in the race and we have to pick one of them. I have picked Ted Cruz. I do not have anything against any supporters of David Dewhurst. We are on the same side trying to fight Obama and the liberals. We just disagree about who the best person for the job will be. I really do believe with all my heart that Ted Cruz is the better of the two for the US Senate. Not only do I believe that Ted Cruz is better, I believe that Ted Cruz is a person that AMERICA NEEDS.
We Need a Conservative Fighter, Especially after the Supreme Court just upheld Obamacare as an ObamaTAX
America is at a critical crossroads. The federal government is out of control. Too many politicians believe that compromise is the way to solve problems. Well, I believe that compromising our conservative values is what has allowed us to end up in the position we are in now.
We do not need to compromise. We need to draw a line in the sand and say that we WILL cut spending, we WILL stop Obamacare, we WILL stop attacks on Christianity, we WILL defend states rights. We not only need someone who will stand strong, we also need someone who can articulate and defend our conservative values and explain why we believe what we believe. Now that everything goes to the Supreme Court, it is especially important that we elect leaders who can effectively argue for conservative values all the way up to the Supreme Court.
Ted Cruz is that man. Ted Cruz is a man who stands for conservative values and does not compromise. He can, and has fought for conservative values all the way up to the Supreme Court and WON!
I do believe that David Dewhurst has conservative values, but I also believe that David Dewhurst has been in office a long time and has worked himself up to a position as LT Governor where he has had to work with both sides and sometimes compromise in order to get things done. Dewhurst has had to play nice with both sides on many occasions. For instance, when Dewhurst has decided who his committee chairmen will be, he typically has given the positions to both liberal Democrats and Republicans instead of just trying to put all conservatives into the chairmen positions. Also, when Dewhurst found out that the federal government was threatening to shut down air traffic if we passed the TSA anti-groping bill, Dewhurst campaigned against the TSA bill instead of standing up for the bill and telling the feds to bring it on. Well, nothing against Dewhurst or his conservative values because I do believe he is conservative and a good guy, but I do not want to chance sending someone up to Washington who might compromise, back down, or play the political system as the only way to get things done.
I want to send a new, fresh face to Washington who will not go along with the other side. I want someone as our new US Senator who is going to draw the line in the sand and fight for conservative values with no compromise. America NEEDS someone like this! We will not save America from the destructive path it is heading down unless we drastically change the people in office and elect new fresh faces who have nothing to lose, who will rally enthusiastic conservatives behind him, and who will fight for conservative values.
The following youtube video is a speech I recorded of Ted Cruz speaking in Beaumont, TX.
Click this link to watch video if video player does not display at the bottom of this article http://youtu.be/v58QsGzMQTs
Please watch this video and pass this message along!
In this video, Cruz goes over his rock solid record of arguing for conservative values in front of the United States Supreme Court and WINNING important cases involving everything from Gun Rights to States Rights to keeping the Ten Commandments Monument at the Texas State Capitol building!
Ted Cruz has been endorsed by ALL top conservative leaders and conservative groups including Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Senator Rand Paul, Phyllis Schlafly, Glenn Beck, Senator Rick Santorum, David Barton, Sean Hannity, Cathie Adams (Eagle Forum), Congressman Ron Paul, George P. Bush, Peggy Venable (Taxpayer Advocate), Senator Pat Toomey, Former U.S. Attorney General Ed Meese, Mark Levin, as well as numerous other Conservatives.
We need a strong, outspoken, articulate leader like Ted Cruz in the United States Senate.

Watch Out Texas: Supreme Court Strikes Down Corporate Campaign Spending Limits - TX Law Changes? Good for Tom Delay?
According to the AP, the Supreme Court today has (again) ruled that corporations have the right to spend freely to advocate for or against candidates for state and local offices.
The justices struck down a Montana law limiting corporate campaign spending, but this case will have a ripple effect on all other states.
Texas is a state that does not allow corporations to spend money in Texas state and local election.
In fact, former Majority Leader in the United States House of Representatives, Tom Delay, did not even give corporate money to Texas elections but he was prosecuted by a liberal from Austin simply because he give money to the RNC which possibly freed up RNC money to be given to Texas elections. Based on that, this liberal prosecutor said that Tom Delay broke Texas law by giving corporate money to Texas elections.
SOOO, not that the Supreme Court has ruled that it is unconstitutional to limit corporate spending in state and local elections, will Texas have to change its laws to allow corporate spending? If not they might set themselves up for a losing battle in the Supreme Court.
Also, will this ruling have any effect on appeals that Tom Delay has made in a case where he was prosecuted for something that the Supreme Court has said is constitutionally protected?
According to the Washington Post, The Supreme Court has upheld the provision in the AZ law requiring police to check the status of someone they suspect is not in the United States legally. Anyone in AZ must now "Show Me Your Papers" when asked by AZ law enforcement.
I believe that this ruling gives us a glimpse of how the Supreme Court will rule when they hear the Voter ID Law cases.
Several states (including Texas) have passed laws requiring people to show Identification when they vote. You have to show ID for EVERYTHING so why not require ID to be shown at the voting booth? Dead People are voting, non-citizens are voting, people are registering to vote multiple times using fake names. We have to make sure our elections stay free and fair. It is not unreasonable to be able to make sure people are who they say they are when they vote.
Attorney General Eric Holder has a problem with Voter ID laws. Sure, the Supreme Court has already upheld voter ID laws. Sure Eric Holder requires ID to be shown when entering a building to see Eric Holder Speak, but NO he says to Texas and South Carolina when we want ID to be shown when people vote.
I already think the Supreme Court will side with Texas on the Voter ID laws and because we have Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott fighting for us, but now I am really sure that the Court will allow Texas to require ID when voting after the Supreme Court has allowed AZ to check the citizenship status (even though Eric Holder said that is something that only the Federal Government can do). I do not believe in discrimination and I do not believe this AZ law will be used to discriminate. The police will not be able to stop someone if they think the person is here illegally. The police will be able to ask for identification and check for citizenship status ONLY if the person has already been stopped of detained for breaking the law.
The bottom line is, these laws are good. It is common sense that our elections should be secure and people should show ID when they vote, and also, if the police stop someone who is suspected of breaking the law, the police should be able to verify who the person is, including if they are in the country legally.

It is Debate Night in Texas! (Friday June 22nd, 2012) Watch Ted Cruz debate David Dewhurst tonight at 8:00 PM Central! Should be a good show.
The debate will live video stream online here: http://bit.ly/PCarDQ. It will also be broadcast on other stations across Texas! Check your local listing here: http://bit.ly/LIzgiL
As you know, I (and just about all major conservative organizations and individuals) am supporting Ted Cruz for US Senator from Texas.
I believe that Ted Cruz is the better of the two.
The big thing that drew me to Cruz is the fact that he has stood for conservative values in the Supreme Court and has won! Everything seems to end up in the Supreme Court these days and it is very important, not just to have a conservative, but a conservative who can articulate and defend our conservative values all the way to the Supreme Court.

Mistakes happen in a rush. I make them all the time.
Major news outlets should probably have better proof readers than me though (I don't have any).
MSN posted the Holder Contempt Story on their front page.
The problem is.....
Who is Eric Holden?
Vote PASSES, Eric Holder in CONTEMPT - Obama Executive Privilege & "Evolving Truth" No Good in Fast and Furious - Dems Want Gun Control
The Contempt Charge now goes to the entire House for a vote on holding Holder in Contempt before it is sent to prosecution.
The committee even passed an amendment with many reasons why Obama's executive privilege is not valid
The Committee hearing was very interesting. The Democrats, like Reps Towns and Rep Norton, tried to say that the Committee should give more time to Eric Holder because Holder is willing to work with the committee to release some documents.
The Committee Chairman, Rep Issa, made clear that the Committee had given plenty of time to Holder and has been very lenient and even had staff stay up all night waiting for the documents. Issa said that no one is above the law.
The Committee meeting was very long and there were many arguments back and forth. Below are some of the highlights from the meeting:
Congressman Chaffets quotes President Obama from when Obama first got into office about transparency. Chaffets quoted Obama from when Obama said that his administration would be completely transparent and would allow freedom of information requests even when the information requested might be embarrassing.
Chaffets said we have thousands of guns given to drug cartels. We have hundreds of people dead across the border. We have a US Border Patrol Agent dead. This is about the Department of Justice and Justice in the United States
Rep Mack said that if the Obama Administration and the Justice Department were so willing to get this info out then there would not have been a last minute letter from President Obama to claim executive privilege to hide the documents.
Rep Kucinich said that now that Obama has claim executive privilege then the committee should not go forward with contempt.
Chairman Issa said that Kucinich did and probably everyone on his side of the isle probably voted to hold Harriet Miers in contempt even though Bush had used executive privilege.
Rep Walberg said that we owe it to dead border agent Brian Terry to find out the truth of what happened. He said it does not give him pleasure to have a contempt vote but it has to be done. He said that Obama's evolving truth is not good enough. He said the Justice Department said they would give the committee a fair compilation but then Eric Holder would be in control of what documents should or should not go into that compilation.
Rep Lankford said that If the Department of Justice asked for documents, no US Attorney would allow 7 months to pass before getting the documents. No US Attorney would allow someone to decide which documents get turned over to the DOJ and they would not allow someone to tell them to that instead of getting documents they will instead get an explanation of the documents. Congress was given false statements from the DOJ. One month the DOJ tells Congress that they did not allow guns to go into Mexico and that was found to be untrue. This same DOJ is supposed to be investigating security leaks. It is important for Congress to find out the facts of what happened.
Rep Buerkle said that Brian Terry has been dead for over 500 days now and still no one has been held responsible. She said that this committee is responsible for finding the truth. Holder has not provided requested documents and he has been given time and has dodged questions. The lack of transparency regarding the death of a federal agent is sickening and the last minute effort to use executive privilege is sickening. What is being hidden? Are there more people dead that we don't know of?
Rep Connolly talked about Kangaroo courts and said we need more gun control and an assault rifle ban instead of a contempt vote.
Rep Meehan said this is not about Kangaroos, this is about a dead border patrol agent. He said Congress was lied to by the DOJ and could not get answers from the DOJ. There is a series of questions that need to be answered and there was knowledge of this program in the highest levels.
Rep Jordan said the committee just wants the information. These documents were requested 8 months ago and it was not until today did the President try to use executive privilege. Rep Jordan said that executive privilege only applies to communication with the President. Rep Jordan said that Eric Holder sat in front of the committee and said there was never any communication with President Obama about this.
Rep Gowdy did a passionate emotional speech about the high level officials in the DOJ knowing about this gun walking program before Brian Terry got killed and how the committee was lied to by the DOJ about the program while at the same time the DOJ was boasting the program in Mexico. Gowdy said he does not have answers to tell his constituents when they ask him how this agent was killed and who authorized this program. He compared Senator Obama's stance on executive privilege to President Obama's stance on executive privilege. He went on to say that if Obama did not know about this program then what is he doing trying to use executive privilege to protect the information?
Rep Ross said that the American public expects accountability. He said that people need to stop blaming the Bush Administration for the current administration's mistakes and failures to release documents. He said that any gun programs (like operation wide receiver) under Bush did not result in any deaths and were not known by Bush. When Bush found out he ended the program. This is very different than Fast and Furious. Rep Gowdy followed with more passionate speech about how people need to stop blaming Bush for everything and blaming Bush does not have anything to do with Eric Holder currently not releasing documents.
Rep Speier said that gun walking still exists because anyone in America can buy guns like ak 47's that they don't need.
Before the final vote to approve a contempt resolution against Holder, the committee passed an amendment with many reasons why Obama's executive privilege is not valid. Some of the reasons include the fact that the time Obama should have claimed executive privilege was 8 months ago when Eric Holder was first called to testify, and also the fact that the president has not even claimed executive privilege and instead they have heard it from the DOJ who is not authorized to invoke the privilege.
During the hearing, the Brian Terry family sent a statement to the committee saying that Eric Holder and Obama are trying to prevent the truth from coming out about why their son was killed by Mexican drug cartel members who was allowed to have a gun by the Fast and Furious gun walking program.
On a side note, I hear from Not on the Payroll blog that the city is looking to pay Pearson to go away. I wrote a story a few weeks ago saying that Pearson was only pulling the race card because he knew he would be fired and wanted to try to get some cash in a settlement after he got fired....
Letter from Julie Fish regarding Chief Pearson accusation in Texas Tribune Story that she wrote Hot Check even though Public Record and arrest shows Pearson wrote check:
name is Julie Fish and I am Rodney Pearson's first wife and I just read
an article as follows from the texastribune.org With Cade Bersen hired
by Rodney Pearson for his termination as Chief of Police that has been
ongoing for months...
"Cade Bernsen, the former police chief’s
attorney, said the rankings were purposely devised to discredit Pearson,
who has 22 years of experience as a DPS trooper, and had never
previously been used to evaluate candidates. The check, he said, was
written by Pearson’s wife at the time, and was for less than $20."
In Jasper, Black Leaders Say Tensions Escalating After Chief's Dismissal, by Morgan Smith
Jasper continues to deal with fallout from the dismissal of its first
black police chief. Black community leaders in the East Texas town say
racial tensions are at "an all-time high.
Fish, did not write this hot check that was less than $20 dollars that
Rodney himself wrote and was arrested in Nolan County Texas "Sweetwater
Texas" and is now claiming that I wrote after Rodney was terminated...I
am so very appalled that the texastribune.org and The Bernson attorney
for the former Chief of Police would allow such an out right lie to
defame me. This is considered libel and I want a public apology due to
this out right lie that Rodney has told his attorney and that the
texastribune.org would print publicly. Again, Rodney was arrested in
Sweetwater Texas on Hot checks or check that he was repeatedly told to
take care of that he himself wrote. He was arrested at our home at the
time and booked and photographed and fingerprinted at at the Nolan
County Court house and then he bonded out...That check was written by
Rodney Pearson himself period...Anyone that is arrested it then becomes
Then once he was transferred to Jasper he
continued to have the same repetitive behavior with hot checks that he
left in Nolan county from where he was transferred to Jasper Texas. It
is also my understanding he was suspended with no pay for a certain
amount of days for theft of service by checks in Jasper Texas as well
which is also public record....It is not my fault that Rodney Pearson
was suspended with no pay for not taking care of his
No governing body of court of law or law
enforcement agency would allow someone to be arrested and booked on a
hot check that someone else wrote. The texastribune.org and the Berson's
attorney's are wrong for allowing this to be printed and published for
blaming and defaming my name for this particular check that Rodney
himself wrote...The truth shall set you free....
I want a
retraction of the truth printed as I will not set back and let someone
that has been terminated from a position that is in no way ever been or
even remotely connected to me. The is a libel charge and I am a strong
woman and I will stand up for what is right when it comes to my name...
I guess in today's world it has become so easy to blame someone else
for your own problems that was brought on from you yourself when all a
person has to do is be honest... Honesty to me is the ONLY
policy....Just to let the town of Jasper Texas Know that I am in no way
perfect and no one is, but to print an out right lie that defames my
name and can be proven by the open records right can prove my very
statement that I am openly speaking out about...PERIOD..
my homework and will continue until this stops and will do what it takes
to stop this libel and vicious way to make someone else look like that
it is the people of Jasper, Texas fault and now me, his first wife that
lives in another state... What is wrong with people...This has nothing
to do with race...Well, I maybe I am wrong, I am white and being accused
of something that I did not do, so maybe he texastribune.org would like
to interview me...I have lots of knowledge...

We will NEVER own our own land so long as we have property tax. We will always just be renting our land and home from the government. Wil will always be slaves to the government just to get the right to have land.
Propert tax is the worst tax of all. Yes, Texas whould have to compensate somewhere else, but compensating somewhere else is better than keeping us enslaved and never owning property under a property tax.

Same-Sex Ceremony on Military Base - So Much for State and Federal Law - Experiment on Soldiers/Military Continues
“The liberal social experiment with our military continues,” Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) told Fox News Radio. “A same-sex marriage-like ceremony should not have occurred at Fort Polk, especially since the people of Louisiana have made it abundantly clear that our state does not recognize same-sex marriages or civil unions.”.........

Daniel Greer also wrote about this tactless move on his AgendaWise website here
Democrat Rep. Castro had this to say to the Texas Tribune just this past weekend, “Joe, if it were up to him, I think would have a more moderate Texas,” he said. “But he’s presiding over a Republican Party that is very extreme today, and if he’s going to stay Speaker, he’s going to have to curry favor with them.”
I guess we should be thankful to Straus because Straus could have tried to stand in the way. Thanking him for not standing in the way of pro-life bills does not mean that Straus was the reason or even wanted these conservative bills to pass. Truth be told, besides the big issues that we wanted to get passed, Straus actually did hurt many of the low key conservative bills that were presented by the new, conservative State Representatives.

2012 Platform of the Republican Party of Texas (Word version | PDF version)
(as adopted by the Texas State Republican Convention in Fort Worth on June 8, 2012)
I am sure it will not be long before all the liberal media and civil rights groups come out of the woodworks to cry racism. They will pull the race card and say that Rodney Pearson was fired because he was black. They will ignore the facts that show that Rodney Pearson was fired because he was just not a good police chief who should not have been hired in the first place. They will say the community of Jasper is filled with racists.
NOT SO FAST!
The liberal media will ignore that Jasper, TX and Jasper County just voted to elect James White (who is black) to be their State Representative.
Wait a second! I thought Jasper was racist and did not like black people in office? Nope, that is just what the media wants you to think. They fired Pearson because Pearson was not the best qualified and did a bad job. On the other hand, the just HIRED (elected) James White. They don't care that State Rep. James White is a black man. They only cared that James White was the BEST man for the job with STELLAR conservative values and qualifications.
Sure, you can find racists of all colors in all cities in America. As a community though, Jasper is not a racist city and they do and have elected black people to lead them.
Pearson's Bully Tactics DID NOT work!
The City FIRED him yesterday with a vote of 4-1 after a 2 hour long city council discussion over Pearson.
I first heard about Pearson getting fired because another east Texas Conservative blog, Not on the Payroll, quickly posted up that Pearson had been fired.
Here are some of the things discussed in that meeting, according to the Beaumont Enterprise:
Pearson was questioned about different areas including hours he has put in during his tenure as police chief.
Being questioned by Johnson, Pearson said he works from "8:30 to 4:45 every day." But Johnson pointed to figures that showed that Pearson was out a number of days during the months of February through June.
Johnson also questioned the time that Capt. Curtis Frame puts in the office as well.
Lout centered his questions on if certain police procedures were followed during investigations and how come Pearson is not called out to major crime scenes.
"In the past, when we had a major crime, you would always see Chief (Todd) Hunter at the scene," Lout said. "Where are you at these scenes?"
Thursday, June 7, 2012
My previous article said that the platform committee did this intentionally. I meant to say I believe it was done UNintentionally. The I and the U are beside each other on the keyboard and I am tired.
I believe the platform committee had good intentions and many of the things they did are good. I still believe some of the immigration section of the platform is vague in spots (like who will be deported if mass deportations are not possible and how specifically do we want the border secures). It has come to my attention though that, although much of the immigration section was taken out, many of the important parts of the immigration section are still scattered around the platform in other sections (like law enforcement which deals with deporting any criminal illegals). So that does make me feel better to see these important parts still scattered in the platform. I do not feel that anyone on the platform committee is for amnesty and instead, I just think the way some things are worded should be clarified because it could come across as Amnesty. (It was a split vote so almost have of the committee did not want this). Also, Amnesty might not even be the best word to describe what is in the platform because the proposed platform would require punishments like fines and no one would get a free pass.
Anyways, those are my couple of clarifications and corrections. I hope we can have civil debate tomorrow and work on passing a platform that does reflect some needed changes and clarifications on immigration so that we do not push away Hispanics, but at the same time we need to make sure we are not wording things in a way that people will mistake what we are saying as amnesty or a free pass.
Take Action to Remove Amnesty from Proposed Platform before Final Vote Friday!
The 2012 Texas State Republican Convention Platform Committee has finally finished the proposed 2012 Texas Republican Party Platform and the Republican Party of Texas has posted these proposals on the Republican Party of Texas Convention Website. For your convenience, you can just click on the links below to see the proposed rules and platform.
PROPOSED 2012 RPT RULES (PDF)
PROPOSED 2012 RPT RULES (WORD)
PROPOSED 2012 RPT PLATFORM (PDF)
PROPOSED 2012 RPT PLATFORM (WORD)
THIS IS NOT THE FINAL VERSION!!
This is the proposed platform. It still has to be voted on by the delegates at the convention tomorrow afternoon (Friday June 8th 2012). It can still be changed before the final vote.
This proposed platform WILL BE THE FINAL VERSION IF WE DO NOT TAKE ACTION TO CHANGE IT TOMORROW
Here is the problem.
The problem is that the platform committee did not have enough time to work on the immigration section and they HOPEFULLY UNTENTIONALLY allowed a section to be vague and basically says that the Republican Party of Texas is against deporting any illegal immigrants (amnesty)
THIS IS NUTS!
Ok, I understand wanting to really reach out to Hispanics and try to show what we are a party for Hispanics because we share conservative values. i am ok with many of the changes to the platform to more clearly state our immigration positions without turning off Hispanics. I understand that it is probably impossible to deport all 11 million illegals and we need to come up with a plan. At the same time though, putting in our platform that we are for Amnesty and that we are against deporting anyone is just nuts and will do nothing to solve the problem of illegal immigration and preventing it and encouraging people to come over legally.
The part of the proposed platform about securing the border is even vague. It does not say how we should secure the border. It should at least say that we need to put troops on the border to stop illegal immigration and protect America from the hundreds of thousands of Criminals and Violent Drug Cartel members who are coming over each year.
I do not believe this is what the members on the platform committee intended because they ran out of time, but this section most certainly needs to be clarified or taken out on the floor of the convention tomorrow.
below is the exact wording of the proposed Immigration Section of the platform. The entire Proposed Platform can be seen by clicking on the links at the top of this article
State Republican Executive Committeeman for SD3
I had dinner last night with two of the Greatest Texans and great Republicans. Attorney General Greg Abbott and Governor Rick Perry
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott told me he believes the Supreme Court will strike down Obamacare. Decision to come this month!
Governor Perry said he believes Obama is getting ready to print more money to try to save himself by making the economy look like it has more money and is doing better.. This would of course cause devaluation of the dollar.
