The National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre will be speaking at CPAC Thursday, March 6 and the NRA has graciously allowed Texas Conservative News to live-stream the speech.
“By winning just a handful of Senate and House seats in November’s elections, Obama could effectively wield all the levers of federal power — executive, legislative, and judicial — to gut the Second Amendment that protects our families and defends our freedom.”
I’m curious to see if he addresses the recent occurrences of gun confiscation in Connecticut.
The speech is set to begin at 2:30 p.m. EST (1:30 pm CST)

UPDATE: Showdown: Maryland to Target 110,000 Citizens With Gun Confiscation
A note I received regarding the race for Texas State Representative D21:
Early voting is already over half-way over. With Battleground Texas working this election on behalf of the progressives/Democrats very diligently it means we must do all we can to get our conservative family, friends, and neighbors unless we want the folks who want to ‘turn Texas blue’ to succeed…
Tonight I got word from a trusted source that the Texas HD21 race, which one of our members – Judy Nichols – is running in, is very important. Judy’s opponent voted in District 22 where he lived in the November 5th Constitutional Amendment election. The Democrat Chairman knows this and has communicated to my source that we will be giving them the seat if Dade Phelan wins this primary.
In short – Mr. Phelan isn’t eligible to serve as representative for HD21, but he has been spending so much money that he is running neck and neck with Judy.
On Sunday I received a call from TX Parent PAC which was full of baldfaced lies. Here is a recording of the call:
After I did some reasearch into this PAC I learned that this PAC has supported Thomas – CSCOPE – Ratcliff, and has given Wendy -Abortion Barbie – Davis $53,300 so far this cycle!!!
So we have BOLD lies being spread over the phone in support of Judy’s opponent by a group that support mainly Democrats, including Wendy Davis and one of the biggest names in the CSCOPE ‘scandal’.
Not only that, like many fake ‘conservatives’ this cycle have worked to deceive voters by purchasing ‘endorsements’ from other fake conservatives. No doubt you have revived mail featuring these ‘endorsements’ like many of our TEA Party members. Here are a couple of reports on the ‘pay to play’ endorsement fraud:
What can you do? You can make sure that everyone you know gets a copy of this note, and ask them to make sure they get to the polls to vote. You can also volunteer to make phone-calls on behalf of any candidate you choose to help combat the well-organized Battleground Texas forces; and of course you can donate funds to the candidates you support. Please engage in this battle and fight to win! Folks like us are the majority in Texas but we are not the majority of those involved in working to get those we support elected.
We don’t need any more RINO’s in Austin, or any Democrats who are running as ‘conservative’ Republicans to get elected with important issues that will directly affect our families like CSCOPE and illegal immigration!
All we need to to do beat back the RINO’s who are trying to deceive us is to spread the word and get folks to the polls. Please help!
A trusted source within the Tea Party just alerted me of an ongoing attempt to push at least one Texas congressman toward a pro-amnesty position. Please make time to call your representatives and urge them to oppose any legislation remotely pro-amnesty.
Here is the message:
Hey I just got a call – there is an organized effort to call Randy Weber’s office in favor of amnesty! apparently these are elderly people and my source told me they they are being coached from the background and do not seem to know what they are talking about. Some of the calls are even coming from San Antonio!! I would guess this isn’t only happening in Texas…. We need to sound the alarm and start melting Randy’s phone and every other person in the Texas congressional delegation!! Thanks in advance for helping to spread the word
North Texas Drivers Stopped at Roadblock Asked for Saliva, Blood
Some drivers along a busy Fort Worth street on Friday were stopped at a police roadblock and directed into a parking lot, where they were asked by federal contractors for samples of their breath, saliva and even blood.
It was part of a government research study aimed at determining the number of drunken or drug-impaired drivers.
“It just doesn’t seem right that you can be forced off the road when you’re not doing anything wrong,” said Kim Cope, who said she was on her lunch break when she was forced to pull over at the roadblock on Beach Street in North Fort Worth.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is spending $7.9 million on the survey over three years, said participation was “100 percent voluntary” and anonymous.
But Cope said it didn’t feel voluntary to her — despite signs saying it was.
“I gestured to the guy in front that I just wanted to go straight, but he wouldn’t let me and forced me into a parking spot,” she said.
Once parked, she couldn’t believe what she was asked next.
“They were asking for cheek swabs,” she said. “They would give $10 for that. Also, if you let them take your blood, they would pay you $50 for that.”
At the very least, she said, they wanted to test her breath for alcohol.
She said she felt trapped.
“I finally did the Breathalyzer test just because I thought that would be the easiest way to leave,” she said, adding she received no money.
Welcome to the Texas Constitutional Amendment Election of 2013, where apathy is large and in charge and early voting turnout is almost non-existent. So why the low turnout? Probably because there are no local issues included on many ballots across the state. As one analyst put it, in off cycle years, people vote local. As such they tend to let the larger issues be decided by the most active voters, which unfortunately doesn’t always translate to the smartest or most well-informed.
So to help you make a more informed decision, here is a link to the North Texas Tea Party article offering information on the amendments.
Personally, I think they are all NO votes – especially Prop 6 which would hand more control to the government over a natural resource, create more bureaucracy and more debt – but be your own judge.
North Texas Tea Party - The State Constitutional Amendments
From the Texas Legislature Council: Analyses of Proposed Constitutional Amendments November 5, 2013, Election
Strange how there were very few negative comments included in the council’s analysis. Actually, not so strange considering the source is the people who authored the amendments.
The poll clearly shows Cornyn is trouble, especially when you see that in the poll Sen. R. Edward Cruz (R.-Texas) has a job approval rating of 73 percent among Republicans and Cornyn 46 percent, said the pollster Doug Kaplan, who founded Gravis Marketing in 2010 and whose polls were included in the Real Clear Politics basket of polls during the 2012 campaign.
In head-to-head questions the only named individual who beat Cornynwas former Republican congressman Ronald D. Paul, who beat Cornyn 44 percent to 34 percent, but that could be a function of name recognition, Kaplan said.
“From the results of this poll, a lesser-known candidate could close the gap by embracing the Tea Party label,” he said.
Anyone have information on this?

This is taking place in the canals around Slidell, Louisiana. These are military gun boats. No one has seen this in this area before.
