has ruled the NSA's phone tapping program constitutional. The judge, William Pauley, was nominated to the bench in 1998 by Pres. Bill Clinton, on the recommendation of Democratic Sen. Patrick Moynihan. All the more reason to fight getting Hillary Clinton elected President. This is a sobering reminder that their actions have effects reaching far beyond their terms in office. We can't afford another Clinton.

According to a story in the Marietta (GA) Daily Journal, Lockheed spokesman Johnny Witaker said the withdrawal of support "includes all company monetary contributions and company-sponsored employee activities with the Scouts like facility tours, on-site Scouting activities and events, service on the Atlanta Council’s executive board and employee volunteer activities on company time.”
Lockheed also announced the disapprove of the Boy Scouts' ban on atheists as Scout Leaders.

This Duck Dynasty guy exercised his freedom of speech. GRAND! But that comes with me using my freedom of speech to call him an asshole.

Oy vey. So much for tolerance for others or opinion equality.
You would think the President would be ashamed to send out such a generic, bland, and totally secular Christmas card, but his attitude toward the Christian faith is perfectly reflected here. His Ramadan card, however, was awesome.
His latest bit involves Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, which the President managed to forget mentioning on Twitter. He did, however, remember to tweet about Obamacare on the same day. Twice. Not even the official White House Twitter account mentioned it. They did, however, send out over a dozen tweets when Nelson Mandela died this week.

It seems every time America marks a solemn occasion, President Obama can't help making it all about himself. He repeatedly injects himself into the event, so instead of focusing on the passing of an American legend, for example, we focus on Obama contemplating the person instead. Narcissism can be sad when it is so blatant.
The photo above, courtesy of PJMedia.com, shows some of the President's recent tributes, which seem more like tributes to himself. It includes his recent tip of the hat to the passing of Nelson Mandela, in which Mandela is nowhere to be found.

After making some misogynistic comments about Gov. Sarah Palin, Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC. How will America survive with one less petty, know-it-all Brit on the air criticizing conservatives while getting rich off of it? We still have Piers Morgan to annoy us, unfortunately.

I had the pleasure of appearing on the Wade Emmert show as a member of his "Power Panel," discussing everything from Obamacare to the Texas gubernatorial race (this is a Dallas show, after all). Big thanks to Wade (you can visit his website right here) for having me on and feel free to click below to hear the episode.
According to NBC affiliate KXAS-TV, drivers on a busy Ft. Worth street were recently stopped at a police roadblock and asked for samples of their breath, saliva, and even blood. Off-duty members of the Ft. Worth police department helped staff of the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTA) with the roadblock, and even though giving up a DNA sample was "voluntary," being stopped was not, and drivers who were pulled over felt pressured to participate. The government offered compensation for collecting the samples. The NHTA claims it was an anonymous collection of samples for a survey of American drivers, but after complaints, Ft. Worth police apologized, saying the participation of their officers was not coordinated with headquarters. Attorneys say the roadblock and collection may have been a civil rights violation, and investigations continue. To find out more, read the story by KXAS right here.

Apparently, I wasn't the only one having issues with the website. According to Twitchy.com, lots of folks couldn't log in to the call, including many reporters. Oops.
If you didn't get to hear the Chosen One explain how everything's gonna be cool with Obamacare (eventually) either, you apparently didn't miss much. Twitchy reported that one of the President's ideas to boost Obamacare was to talk it up at Christmas parties. I'm not kidding. Obamacare supporters have sunk to the level of THAT GUY at every party who tries to sell you something. We may just win this war without having to fire a shot, since the opposition keeps shooting themselves in the foot.

So who is actually benefiting from the Affordable Care Act? Workers in the sex industry, it appears. A recent event organized by Obamacare supporters in San Francisco (of course) featured burlesque dancers performing risque skits in which they ended up topless to entertain strippers, hookers, and other assorted sex industry workers and convince them to sign up for Obamacare. It was dubbed a "Healthy Ho's Party." Seriously.
Apparently, when you're a hooker and only deal in cash, insurance is a problem. Thankfully, Obamacare will subsidize their health care - with our tax dollars. Thanks, Mr. President!

Since it's Guy Fawkes Day, we should note that hundreds of years after the fact, we still face tyranny. We have a President who spies on us at will, ruins our insurance program (after lying about it), uses the IRS to punish his enemies, abandons our heroes to die on the streets of Benghazi, and disregards the Constitution he promised to defend. Sadly, even his political foes (including the party I support) seem more concerned with personal gain than serving the people. While we remember the 5th of November, we should also remember the first Tuesday of November, when we can participate in our own revolution.
Actress Molly Ringwald decided the Texas Governor's race was missing something: her endorsement of Wendy "Abortion Barbie" Davis. She took the time to tweet on Thursday (Halloween, no less) "Support this woman. The next governor of Houston, Texas. #wendydavis #weneedwomenlikethese."
Her tweet instantly gained ridicule, with many asking exactly when Houston became a state. Others asked if she knows the difference between a mayor and a governor. She also appears to think Houston is the state capitol - wrong again, Molls - it's Austin. Personally, if politics gets her this confused, I wonder if she really knows that abortion ends a human life. I kinda doubt Wendy will fill her in.
Ringwald eventually deleted the tweet, blaming the mistake on jetlag. Yeah, flying makes us really stupid too. To read more about her tweet and the reaction to it, click here to read the full story at LifeNews.com.
Supporters of Glenn Beck are angry, however, that TWC refused to add his network, TheBlaze, despite a recent campaign in which thousands of TWC customers called and wrote asking them to carry it. They are not taking the snub lying down: they are flooding TWC's Facebook page with messages supportive of TheBlaze and critical of Al Jazeera.

The Heritage Foundation has managed to do what President Obama can't - give us all real numbers of the cost of ObamaCare. Below is a chart listing the rates for certain age and family groups, if you purchase from the government's health care exchange. As you can see, young people - who thought they were getting free medical care - will carry the biggest burden of cost. It should be noted that Virginia's numbers may be more than usual (due to exchange errors), and some states, like New York and New Jersey, have certain regulations in place that will initially keep their rates lower than usual. Those regulations are not permanent, so those rates will eventually rise. You can click here to read more of Heritage's report on the true cost of "affordable health care."

Wendy Davis, who made a name for herself by filibustering a bill that would have saved viable unborn children from late term abortions, is running for Texas governor. As a Texan, I decided to take her campaign ad and improve on it.
Like those who turned out for her filibuster weeks before, abortion supporters were ready to disrupt the proceedings again in July when the bill was reintroduced. According to state troopers, jars of feces and urine were confiscated from protesters trying to enter the capitol. Since they are abortion supporters, it's safe to say this isn't the most disgusting thing they condone. To read all about what happened, click right here to read the full story.

Apparently, the heavy-handed attempt to appear tolerant to the gay community didn't go over well with anyone, most of all fans of Spider-Man. Besides, one has to wonder, when you are dating actress Emma Stone (as Garfield is), why in the world are you even thinking about playing a gay character? The guy doesn't know a good thing when he has it.

Even though the basics of the immigration debate have not changed, Palin now seems to have changed her tune to one that will likely win the support of the very vocal (and very supportive) anti-immigrant movement.
Palin makes a living on TV appearances and speeches for various Republican groups around the country. The question, then, must be asked: is she really saying what she believes about immigration reform, or is she merely playing to those who butter her bread? After seeing how Marco Rubio has been ripped and savaged by his fellow Republicans, does she have the courage to admit she once held his views as well? What has changed between 2008 and now to cause this flip-flop, and why won't she talk about it? One has to wonder.

My latest report points out a group of bloggers that write for a media corporation funded by ad revenue from a Washington political group. This political group seems intent on preaching broad, hateful rhetoric on the issue of immigration, and the bloggers seem happy to echo that rhetoric. This is why we don't see more meaningful, in-depth reporting on many controversial issues - there's no money in it.

A well-respected pregnancy site produced a video outlining what a 20 week old baby is like, and we included it in a report you can read right here. Feel free to share with anyone who tries to sing Davis' praises. It's sobering to see the human babies that she feels are unworthy of life.

Rev. White has gone on a campaign in support of gay marriage, arguing that Jesus "didn't know it all" about the subject, and would support it if He were here to speak to us today. Not surprisingly, White's stand has cost him most of his church members, and his church property is facing foreclosure. He's just being showered with blessings from above, we can tell.

Remember that story we did a while back about the Army listing Christians as possible terrorists? This is the by-product of that sort of thinking.
I guess when we quote the poem at the Statue of Liberty saying "give me your tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free," we need to start adding "except for the poor, huddled masses of Mexicans yearning to escape the drug violence and poverty of their lousy country." What an ignorant tool this guy is. He probably doesn't even know that our goverment's immigration system is so screwed up that every year, thousands of immigrants trying to follow the rules are denied green cards for no reason at all. Over one million qualified applicants are still waiting. Some people have waited over 25 years. No wonder they cross the border in desperation. But that doesn't mean a thing to a spoiled millionaire.

It turns out Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius (pictured here) and the former head of the EPA were amonf those using the secret accounts, which could be a crime if they were used to circumvent federal disclosure laws. I suppose we can just add them to the long list of misdeeds by this Administration that go uninvestigated, below Fast and Furious and Benghazi but above giving Bo the Dog his own private jet on trips.
