Four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/2012 because the president of the United States of America valued his re-election campaign more than their safety.
Our diplomats in Benghazi requested more security after Islamic terrorists promised to attack the British, Red Cross, and American buildings in Benghazi. They made good on two-thirds of that promise by attacking the British and Red Cross facilities, and it was just a matter of time before their third attack.
Hillary “What Difference Does It Make?!” Clinton denied requests for increased security because the Campaigner in Chief was busy promising us that Islamic terrorists were not a threat to American international interests.
Moreover, in the midst of a hostile environment, the Obama administration *decreased* security so that they could portray the situation in Libya as normal rather than hostile.
For the sake of U.S. personnel safety, we absolutely should have either increased security or closed up shop & left town – neither of which would have looked good to voters in November 2012.
“Only” 5% of Americans lost their health insurance due to Obamacare, which to this administration is a justifiable sacrifice on the road to Obama’s utopia.
Four dead Americans in Benghazi were apparently just another justifiable sacrifice.
From “Politics According to the Bible” by Wayne Grudem:
“Biblical Support for Significant Christian Influence [over secular governments]
1. Old Testament examples
The Bible shows several examples of believers in God who influenced secular governments.
For instance, the Jewish prophet Daniel exercised a strong influence on the secular government in Babylon. Daniel said to Nebuchadnezzar,
‘Therefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable to you: break off your sins by practicing righteousness, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the oppressed, that there may perhaps be a lengthening of your prosperity.’ (Dan. 4:27).”

My fellow Texans,
Our thriving oil and gas industry, world famous healthcare industry, and education system have combined to make Texas the #1 state economy in the country. However, each of these economic pillars of our prosperity faces major challenges from big government.
Federal regulations threaten to choke our oil and gas industry. Obamacare will bankrupt our state budget in just a few years. Teachers in 80% of Texas public schools have been forbidden from discussing their curricula with administrators or parents. Big government has simply gone too far.
In the face of these challenges, we have important decisions to make.
Will we support the policies that have failed in Europe, California, and Detroit? Or will we return to the ideas of limited, constitutional government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets that made America the most powerful nation in the world, and Texas its greatest state?
If I am elected to serve District 27 and Texas as your State Representative, I will work hard to protect our oil & gas industry, while also pushing for more effective environmental health and safety measures.
I will protect our healthcare industry and our state budget by opposing Obamacare, and by proposing legislation that prohibits the federal government from draining our state coffers with unfunded mandates.
I will fight for our children and make sure that teachers are allowed – and encouraged – to discuss their curricula with administrators and parents; I will support more local control of public education, and efforts to give parents more freedom to choose where they send their children to school.
If we want to preserve the blessings of liberty for our next generation, we must elect true leaders who will face our challenges with courage. I pledge to be that kind of leader for you.
Candidate for District 27 State Representative
Once upon a time, when Tejas was a territory of Mexico, the Mexican government decided to strengthen the national government by taking away the rights of individual territories and individual citizens.
When the original Texans opposed this government overreach, the Mexican government decided to repossess a cannon that belonged to the residents of Texas. The Texans’ response was the now famous Texas saying, “Come & Take It.”
It turns out that Texans have never taken it too kindly when the government tries to take away our rights, or our arms.
Perhaps the folks in Washington D.C. who want to take away our rights, including our 2nd Amendment rights, should brush up on their Texas history.
“Come & Take It”
It’s been almost three years since December 14, 2010, the night that Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed.
Two AK 47 rifles were found at the scene, which were traced to ATF operation “Fast and Furious,” in which over 2,000 high-powered weapons were put in the hands of gun runners for Mexican cartels.
Supposedly the purpose was to track the guns to the cartels & catch a “big fish” or two, rather than merely arrest a couple gun runners or low-level cartel thugs.
The problem with this explanation is that exactly zero of the guns were tracked once they crossed the border into Mexico, and there was exactly zero communication about the operation with Mexican authorities.
No phone call to say, “by the way we’re giving 2,000 guns to drug cartels. Just thought you should know.”
Almost three years. Still no answers from the Obama administration. Still no justice for Brian Terry or his family. Still no media coverage.
From a 1966 Paul Harvey article titled “The Eskimo and the Wolf”:
“I shall now recite the manner in which an Eskimo kills a wolf.
The Eskimo coats his knife blade with blood and allows it to freeze there.
Then the Eskimo adds another layer of blood, and then another.
As each succeeding smear of blood freezes to the blade of the knife the Eskimo adds an additional coating until the blade is concealed by a substantial thickness of frozen blood.
Then the knife handle is buried in the frozen ground with the blade up.
The marauding wolf follows his sensitive nose to the scent and tastes the fresh-frozen blood…
And licks it…
More and more vigorously the wolf licks at the bait until the keen edge is bare.
Feverishly now, he licks harder…
In the arctic night so great becomes his craving for blood that he does not notice the razor-sharp sting of the naked blade on his own tongue.
Nor does he recognize the instant at which his insatiable thirst is being satisfied by his own warm blood…
‘More!’ His carnivorous appetite craves, ‘more!’
Until dawn finds him dead in the snow.”
Eskimos have discovered that if you want to kill a wolf, the easiest way to do so is to trick the wolf into killing itself.
Likewise, after failing for many years to destroy America from without – the fangs and claws of freedom-loving Americans are not entirely unlike those of wolves – American Communists have discovered a way to trick us into destroying ourselves.
There are only about 20,000 Communists in America today; however, they wield substantial influence over American public policy.
Communists in America are destroying us by coating their destruction of our country as we know it (the knife) with entertainment and comfort (the blood). More specifically, they have infiltrated and gained control of our labor unions. They use the benefits they provide their union members to demand obedience from them – you want union membership and benefits, you protest this policy and vote for that candidate. Using their control of union members, the comrades control the Democratic Party by block voting for policies and politicians they prefer.
This is a substantial claim – that Communists control our labor unions, and use the union members to control the Democratic Party. A claim this substantial needs proof.
I offer four pieces of evidence as proof, two of which prove Communist control of the unions and the other two prove Communist control of the Democratic Party.
The evidence is as follows:
1) Union support of amnesty
2) Union support of Obamacare
3) The Democratic Party platform is parallel to the Communist goals for America
4) The Democratic Party decision in favor of Barack over Hillary in 2008
1) Union support of amnesty
Before 1995, when the Communists took control, labor unions were the biggest opponents of amnesty. They rightly saw that granting citizenship to illegal immigrants would jolt the supply-demand relationship in the labor market, drive down wages, and thereby be very bad for union members. Now, the union leadership gives priority preference to the good of the Democrat Party over and against the good of their own union members. Amnesty will still be bad for union members, but amnesty will be extremely beneficial for the Democrat Party. So the union leadership supports amnesty, and requires their union members to do likewise.
2) Union support of Obamacare
Obamacare, like amnesty, will be bad for unions and good for Democrats. Congress passed Obamacare in large part because labor unions were outspoken in favor of it. On the doorstep of Obamacare implementation, labor unions think Obamacare is so great for union members that they are seeking an exemption. Union leaders were smart enough to know that Obamacare would be bad for union members from the beginning, but once again put the good of the party ahead of the good of their members.
3) Democrat Platform & Communist Goals
The current Democrat Party platform is indistinguishable from a list of “45 Current Communist Goals,” listed in a book called “The Naked Communist” that was written in 1958 by retired FBI agent Cleon Skousen. Skousen’s list of Communist Goals became a Congressional Record in 1963. Here is the Congressional Record: http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm
4) Democratic Party Chooses Barack Over Hillary
To most of the Democratic Party leadership, 2008 was not supposed to be the year America elected our first black president. 2008 was supposed to be the year we elected our first female president. It was Hillary’s time, it was Hillary’s year. Then out of nowhere, a freshman Senator from Illinois stole the show and started piling up primary victories. How did he do it? With the full support of the labor unions, who believed that a President Obama would be more favorable to their agenda than a President Hillary would be. The labor unions and Communist Party support of Obama over and against Clinton is well documented in Trevor Loudon’s book “Barck Obama and the Enemies Within,” which outlines the impact of Communists and Socialists on the Obama campaign and in his administration.
Friends, I doubt any of you would care enough about a wolf to stop him from licking himself to death on the Eskimo knife trap- unless you are a PETA member. However, if you love America and believe that the freedoms we inherited from our founding fathers, the freedoms our troops have fought and died for, are worth preserving for ourselves and our posterity, we must act.
It is time to wake up, stand up, and defend the freedoms that are stitched into every single star and every single stripe of “Old Glory.” It is time to expose and oppose Communist influence in the Democratic Party.
The D.C. Naval Yard shooter had these factors in common with the majority of mass shooters in U.S. history:
Mental health issues treated by psychiatric drugs (which cause detachment- meaning the drugged person feels about killing real people the way a non-drugged person feels about playing a violent video game), played a lot of violent video games (which de-sensitizes people to killing, especially when combined with psychiatric drugs), and he chose a gun-free zone.
Politicians in both parties take a whole lot of “campaign donations” from big pharmaceutical companies to ignore the connection between psychiatric drugs & mass shootings.
A lot of people play violent video games and never end up going on a real life mass shooting rampage. So while nearly all mass shooters previously played violent video games, not all violent video gamers are mass shooters. However, the connection between the two has popped up frequently enough to warrant some serious thought & discussion.
Lastly, we must realize that violent, gun-toting criminals love gun-free zones & gun control. When politicians respond to mass shootings by calling for more gun control & more gun-free zones, we must remind them that gun control & gun-free zones make the criminals safer & their victims more vulnerable- which is obviously backwards.
“Tonight’s the night,” he thought, as he peered through the bars that were the only thing standing between him and freedom.
He would wait until he could be certain the guards were asleep.
His cell was sturdy, but had a major weakness. There was no ceiling above the bars, so all he had to do was climb his way to freedom. He had previously been too small and weak to make the climb, but he had recently grown in both strength and stature.
He made his move! Up and over the bars, and then down to the floor below- freedom.
After basking in the success of his escape for a few minutes, he realized that his freedom was shackled by his loneliness.
So he picked up a plastic toy hammer on his bedroom floor, went to the door and started tapping the hammer while saying”Ma Ma” and “Da Da” repeatedly.
Soon the guards realized he had escaped, and Mommy and Daddy were astonished to find that 16-month-old Baby Brad had climbed out of his crib for the first time.
Texas needs a conservative Lieutenant Governor.
Texas needs Dan Patrick.
Everybody knows that Texas is a conservative/Republican state. The conservative policies in place in Texas are the reason it is the best state for business and has the best state economy in the country.
However, moderate Republicans- or dare I say “RINOs” (Republican In Name Only)- are preventing Texas from protecting and furthering the conservative principles that have enabled us to thrive in the same economic environment where cities in California, Illinois, & Michigan are going bankrupt as a result of big government, unlimited spending, & too much government secrecy.
Texas has moderates/RINOs in two of our most influential positions, and they have used their thrones to negate the conservative principles we need to keep us from following Detroit & others into bankruptcy. Those positions are Speaker of the House & Lieutenant Governor, & those two positions have been occupied by Joe Straus & David Dewhurst for too long.
Straus & Dewhurst appoint the committee members & committee chairs in the State House & Senate, respectively.
The Representatives in the State House elect their Speaker, & Straus has been elected by a coalition of Democrats & moderate Republicans for three straight terms. We the people do not have a direct influence over the Speaker of the House voting, but we need to employ our indirect influence by telling our Representatives that we don’t support Straus & don’t want them to vote for him- even if it means losing their committee appointments. If they continue to support Straus, we must replace them with true conservatives who will do what is best for Texas & the districts they represent.
We the people do have a direct influence over the Lieutenant Governor. Like Straus in the House, David Dewhurst has negated our Republican control of the Governorship & both legislative houses through his control over Senate committees.
If our Republican Governor & our Republican legislature are to be effective with the Republican principles that have made Texas the best state in the country, we must have true Republicans on our Senate committees & as the chairs of those committees.
David Dewhurst will not make that happen.
To make that happen, Texas needs a conservative Lieutenant Governor.
Texas needs Dan Patrick.
