The news of the indictment against Texas Governor Rick Perry on charges of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public official surprised the country and shook up the early presidential race for 2016. Debate ranged from how the charges would affect Perry’s chances at winning the Republican nomination and the White House to whether Perry would be convicted. A surprising number of liberals and Democrats have broken ranks to defend what many call an unconstitutional attempt to criminalize politics as usual. This is not the first time in recent memory that prosecutors have pressed charges against Republicans on dubious grounds. This harassment of conservatives is likely to worsen in the absence of penalties for malicious prosecution.
In Texas, the Travis County DA office has prosecuted other high profile Republicans. In 1993, Rosemary Lemberg’s predecessor, Ronnie Earle, indicted newly elected U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison on charges of misusing her previous office of state treasurer according to National Review. Hutchison was originally elected in a special election and faced the prospect of running for reelection in 1994 with the indictment hanging over her head. She pressed for a quick resolution and, when the case went to trial, Earle told the court that he could not proceed without the admission of records seized from Hutchison’s office without a search warrant. The judge promptly ordered the jury to return a verdict of not guilty.
This bumper sticker says it all for gun owners in Washington State.
The Spokane Spokesman-Review is reporting that the overwhelming majority of financial support for Initiative 594, Washington state’s controversial 18-page gun control measure backed by the Seattle-based Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR), comes from just ten zip codes in and around the Seattle area.
Evergreen State gun owners are raising alarms about this, and calling on their friends and fellow gun owners to step up to the plate and support alternative Initiative 591. That’s the simple one-page measure that prohibits government gun confiscation without due process, and requires background checks done in Washington to comply with a uniform national standard.

In the days since Rick Perry’s indictment on charges of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public official, many prominent Democrats have condemned the move by a Texas special prosecutor. As Perry’s attorneys announced on Friday, August 22, that he would seek to have the charges dismissed on constitutional grounds according to the El Paso Times, a large number of liberals oppose the Rick Perry indictment, saying that the governor’s actions were not criminal and were protected under the Constitutions of Texas and the United States.
Although Perry’s indictment was initially applauded by many on the left, the flimsy nature of the charges quickly led many liberals and Democrats to condemn what USA Today called a “bid to criminalize politics.” Even the New York Times called the indictment “the product of overzealous prosecution” and opined that “bad political judgment is not necessarily a felony.”
On July 8th, Israel sent ground forces into Gaza and we were mesmerized by the IDF in action as they destroyed tunnel after tunnel stopping an underground Hamas infiltration of their land.
On July 9th, using the developments in Israel as a means to divert and deflect our attention away from an important Senate appointment vote, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro…an Obama nominee with most decidedly communist leanings… became the new Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary.In a vote of 71-26…with 18 (turncoat) Republicans voting in favor of this nomination…the man whose mother was one of the founders of the ubber militant Hispanic political group ‘La Raza Unida’ (The Race United)…an anti-white group whose goal was to create a separate ‘brown’ Hispanic/Chicano only country (Aztlan) within America’s Southwest…that man has now stepped onto the national stage much like Barack HUSSEIN Obama did back in 2007.

They’re coming to a school near you…and they’re coming without needing the required immunizations all our kids need…and the ‘they’ of which I speak are the ILLEGAL children flooding our borders by the thousands…the ILLEGAL children being dispersed all over OUR country who will now spread their diseases to our children who in turn will spread them to us…diseases we long thought had been eradicated in OUR country.
Three months prior to the midterm congressional elections, Senate election polls give Republicans ample reason to be optimistic. Prominent political analysts estimate that enough Senate seats will change hands to create a Republican Senate majority. With new polls released on August 7, polling points toward a Republican Senate majority next year. August 7 also brought the revelation that a Democratic incumbent would withdraw from his reelection campaign.
As Examiner reported in March, a total of 36 Senate seats are up for reelection this year. Democrats are defending 21 seats and Republicans 15. The majority of these seats are safe for both parties, but 16 races are competitive enough to offer a challengers a chance. Republicans currently hold 45 seats in the Senate and would need to win an additional six seats to form a majority.

“This isn’t about Republicans and Democrats, it’s about defending the Constitution that we swore an oath to uphold and acting decisively when it might be compromised.”

“The main vote that they have scheduled for today is whether or not they decide to sue me for doing my job.” – Barack HUSSEIN Obama
For doing his job…his job has been the destruction of America from within…and yeah…he does need to be sued for that. Continue reading →
Disease…illness…epidemic…words that make most people cringe and rightly so for NO one enjoys being sick. Thankfully, in America most major communicable diseases have been if NOT eradicated at least held down to a minimum with isolated pockets popping-up sporadically here and there thanks to childhood vaccines and adult booster shots. And I am NOT talking about the usual garden variety of winter and summer illnesses…the common cold, simple uncomplicated flu, food poisoning, and such…but I mean the hardcore stuff…diseases that can send people to the hospitals en masse…or worse…to the morgue.

A pair of new polls released on Friday, July 25 paint different pictures of the upcoming Georgia general election. A Landmark/WSB poll paints a stark picture for Republicans David Perdue and Nathan Deal, while a Rasmussen poll is more optimistic for the GOP.
The Landmark/WSB poll addresses both the race for the seat of retiring Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss and Gov. Nathan Deal’s reelection campaign. The poll of 750 “active Georgia voters” found that both Republican candidates trail their Democratic challengers. Newly anointed Republican Senate nominee David Perdue trails Democrat Michelle Nunn 43 – 46 percent. Incumbent governor Nathan Deal trails Democrat Jason Carter 40 – 46 percent. Margin of error in the poll is 3.8 percent.
