Week Three of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek Out new life for the Senate, to Boldly Go where our nation needs to be!Ten-Buck-Friday-badge

Focusing on the Senate races (Republicans need just six seats to oust the Dimbulb from Searchlight, Harry Reid as majority leader, ten to show Obama what the country really thinks of him!), is it worth ten bucks a week (1 1/2 lbs. of bacon?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?

With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in AR. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Tom Cotton?

Real Clear Politics has Cotton up 1.7 points on the average, and rates the state as a toss up.

You can contribute to Tom Cotton here. Good luck and Godspeed, Tom!

(If you mark your contribution as “Ten Buck Friday”, they’ll see if the blogosphere can give them a little bump.)

Once again focusing on the Senate races (Republicans need just six seats to oust the Dimbulb from Searchlight, Harry Reid as majority leader), is it worth ten bucks a week (30 pkgs. of Ramen?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?

With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in IA. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Joni Ernst?

Ten Buck Fridays – Take Back the Senate Edition

Ten-Buck-Friday

Back in halcyon years of old (2010), some conservative bloggers put forth a plan where, a poll would be taken of conservative candidates around the country and the winner would be the recipient of a ten dollar contribution to their campaign. Forgive me for not taking a poll, but there are only nine Fridays between now and the midterm elections. Our country has not had a budget passed in the Senate since 2009, forcing a series of continuing resolutions which keep the nation at the brink of a shut down and masks the obscene amounts of money that the President and Congress want to spend. Hundreds of bills passed in the House are not even brought up for a vote in Harry Reid’s Senate.

 

Focusing on the Senate races (Republicans need just six seats to oust the bottleneck, hyper partisan Harry Reid as majority leader), is it worth ten bucks a week (two lattes?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?

With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in GA. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate David Perdue?


Real Clear Politics has Perdue up 3.8 points on the average, but rates the state as a toss up.


You can contribute to David Perdue here. Good luck and Godspeed, David!

Thanks to Proof for resurrecting this tradition.

WATCH: NRA’s Wayne LaPierre Live at CPAC

PARTNERS_CPAC_SOCIAL_V3

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.

LaPierre was recently quoted by Newsmax warning of the Obama administration’s plans to subvert the Second Amendment.

“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)

Be sure to bookmark this post and watch it here!
UPDATE: Showdown: Maryland to Target 110,000 Citizens With Gun Confiscation

Southeast Texas Politics Just Got More Interesting

A note I received regarding the race for Texas State Representative D21:

Hello Everyone,

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…

http://spectator.org/articles/55225/battleground-texas

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:
https://app.box.com/s/qd5l4vof9ltw3pev42z8

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!!!
http://www.texastribune.org/library/data/campaign-finance/filer/00062095-wendy-r-davis/

http://www.txparentpac.com/winners_alpha.html

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:

http://bigjollypolitics.com/2014/01/12/2014-primary-let-endorsements-flow/

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!

#Texas #Amnesty Push Happening Now – Your Help is Needed

20131203-180451.jpg
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

Testing. Testing. Testing Your Resolve to Defend Civil Liberties

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.

What if Texas had a Constitutional Election and No-one Voted?

texas-flag

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.

 

 

Texas GOP Poll: Tea Party challenger beats Cornyn 46% to 33% | Human Events

Sen-John-Cornynjpg

A generic “Tea Party” candidate beats Sen. John Cornyn III  (R.-Texas) a Oct. 26 Human Events/Gravis poll of Republican voters in Texas 46 percent to 33 percent for the GOP’s number two senator.

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.

The Republican primary is March 4. The day for candidates to file for the primary is Nov. 9 with a Dec. 9 filing deadline.

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.
