Thousands Gather In Houston For Police Lives Matter March

Thousands Gather In Houston For Police Lives Matter March

The Katy Rancher:

Clutching a homemade sign bearing the photos of his great grandfather and grandfather, both former law enforcement officers, in his 11 year-old hands and wearing his grandfather’s police hat, Adrian Cisneros said joining thousands of fellow Houstonians at Saturday’s Police Lives Matter March was more than worth the early wake up call.

“My great grandfather and grandfather were cops that passed away while they were cops. I had to be here to show my support and that we care,” Adrian said.

Little Adrian could have spoken for any of the estimated crowd in excess of 10,000 that gathered along a service road on the far northwest side for the march dedicated to the memory of Harris County Sherriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth, gunned down at a Cypress area gas station on August 28, and to show support for law enforcement officers in general. Thousands wore blue “Police Lives Matter” t-shirts and many carried signs with messages like “Love One Another: In Memory of Deputy Goforth” and “United We Goforth” at the peaceful march that was organized via social media.

Lead organizer, Cypress resident Charlie Diggs, said the gathering was important because it helps to assure law enforcement officers shaken by the brazen killing of Goforth that the majority of citizens are in their corner.

“If our law enforcement officers keep getting killed, they’re gonna start quitting whether they want to or not,” said Diggs while addressing the crowd from a makeshift stage in the bed of a red pick-up. “Anybody can say they want to serve and protect, but guess what? Their family will say ‘You’re done. You’re not doing it anymore.’ We have to let them know that they have our support.”

4 Troopers Injured By Suspects During Traffic Stop In Texas, Manhunt Underway For Suspect On Run

4 Troopers Injured By Suspects During Traffic Stop In Texas, Manhunt Underway For Suspect On Run

6:35 p.m. ET: While four troopers were injured in Sunday’s traffic stop in Conway, Texas, one of them is not a Texas trooper but rather a member of the Virginia State Police in the area to observe techniques, KVII-TV reported.

9:08 p.m. ET: Trooper Chris Ray of the Texas Department of Public Safety told KFDA-TV that after troopers pulled over the vehicle, the driver exited and began fighting with them.

Then the driver jumped back into the car and began to take off, Ray told KDFA, adding that the troopers attempted to stop it and were thrown off it or hit by it.

The extent of their injuries wasn’t disclosed.

The driver — who’s still on the loose — has been identified as 25-year-old Victor Apodaca, officials told KFDA. He’s wanted on counts of stolen firearms, distribution of marijuana and possession with intent to traffic methamphetamine and heroin.

Texas Governor Declares States Of Emergency, More Severe Weather Expected

Texas Ravaged by Severe Weather and The New York Times Louie Bond called it a tsunami, a surge of water that began late Saturday night with torrential rains in Texas' Hill Country and raced down the bluff-lined valley ...5 dead, 12 missing as severe weather continues in Texas ... Days of flash flooding, tornadoes and historic rainfall across central Texas and Oklahoma swept away hundreds of homes and left at least five people dead and ... The other eight were missing, along with four others from the area, apparently lost in the torrent that capped weeks of rain and violent weather across Texas and Oklahoma. The weekend’s weather left three people known dead in the two states, and more heavy rain and tornadoes pummeled Texas on Monday.

Texas Governor Declares States Of Emergency, More Severe Weather Expected

Texas governor says deadly flooding is worst ever seen ( VIDEO AT LINK)

The governor of Texas on Monday declared states of disaster in 24 counties, citing the severe weather and flash flooding that have killed at least two people.

The state has been pounded by tornadoes, heavy rainfall, thunderstorms and flooding that forced evacuations and rooftop rescues and left thousands of residents without electrical power.

In declaring the states of disaster in 24 counties, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said: “The State of Texas has taken brisk action in dispatching all available resources to aid those affected by this severe weather system.

“My thoughts and prayers are with all the communities that are suffering as a result of this weather disaster, and I am grateful for the first responders who have worked tirelessly to provide shelter, care and resources to all impacted areas,” he said.

Widespread severe thunderstorms were forecast for Monday in north-central and northeast Texas and southern Oklahoma, likely bringing destructive winds, tornadoes and hail, the National Weather Service said.

The Weather Service issued severe thunderstorm and flash-flood warnings as well as tornado watches throughout the region.

The most intense storms threatening Texas and Oklahoma were likely to strike in the late afternoon and early evening, according to Accuweather.com meteorologist Brian Lada.

“Damaging wind gusts and frequent lightning strikes can occur,” he said.

Parts of the area have received more than a foot and a half of rain since May 1, which is six times more than the area typically receives in all of May, Accuweather said.

Keeping Texas The Beacon of Opportunity

Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) has released a web video with highlights from his recent State of the State tour across Texas. The video, which is titled, “Keeping Texas The Beacon Of Opportunity,” features footage from his visits to Houston and Midland.

“As the sun rises on 2015, the State of Texas is strong and together, we are about to make it even stronger. Our fellow Texans face many challenges,” says Abbott in the video. “Working together, we will succeed and we will keep Texas the beacon state in the United States of America.”

The video lists some of the priorities that Abbott identified during his first State of the State address last month, including education, transportation, reducing the business franchise tax, border security, health care, and ethics reform. As Breitbart Texas reported, Abbott’s speech won praise from both Texas’ political leaders and grassroots conservative activists.

Texas Rodeo Attendees Infuriated by Person Chosen to Deliver Opening Prayer: ‘COWBOYS DON’T WANT IT’

Texas Rodeo Attendees Infuriated by Person Chosen to Deliver Opening Prayer: ‘COWBOYS DON’T WANT IT’

Individuals attending a Fort Worth rodeo over the weekend were left outraged by the individual organizers chose to deliver the opening prayer: Imam Mouthed Bakhach.

For many, the inclusion of a Muslim Imam was a step far too far.

“I just will choose NOT to go somewhere that embraces a religion that wants me, my family and my people DEAD,” one individual wrote on the rodeo’s Facebook page, according to the Star Telegram.

“Muslim/Islam has no place in this country let alone fwssr. Not one Muslim has come out against the radical actions that is the Muslim belief. PERIOD. COWBOYS DON’T WANT IT,” another reportedly commented.

Wild Thing's comment.......

It is upsetting to see events in our country catering to any Islam group and for what.... to try and show how fair minded we have to be.augh This is happening all over our country, stores, schools etc. .....and it is sad and outrageous to see how people want to not face reality about Islam and what it is.

Gov. Abbott to Declare Feb. 2 'Chris Kyle Day' in Texas

Gov. Abbott to Declare Feb. 2 'Chris Kyle Day' in Texas

FOX News

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has announced his plan to declare Feb. 2 "Chris Kyle Day" in the state.

"American Sniper" Chris Kyle had the most confirmed kills in military history. He was fatally shot at a gun range in 2013.

Read the press release and his speech below:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott today addressed the Texans Veterans of Foreign Affairs (VFW) Mid-Winter Convention where he outlined his plan to improve infrastructure, job training, educational opportunities and healthcare access for Texas veterans and military families. In honor of fallen Navy SEAL and American hero Chris Kyle, Governor Abbott also announced his intent to officially declare February 2nd Chris Kyle Day in the state of Texas.

“America is the brightest beacon of freedom the world has ever known for one simple reason – because of you – our veterans, the men and women who put service above self,” Governor Abbott said. “As Governor, I will constantly work to find ways to help our veterans. It’s our duty to help those who helped make America so exceptional. And it’s our duty to honor those whose sacrifice has preserved our freedom.”

Governor Abbott’s VFW Speech:

It’s an honor to be here with all of you who’ve served our country. America is the brightest beacon of freedom the world has ever known for one simple reason – because of you – our veterans, the men and women who put service above self.

My extended family looks a lot like this crowd today – they’ve served in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. My brother Gary served 20 years in the United States Navy and served in the Persian Gulf at the same time as you, Roy. I’ve seen firsthand the sacrifice you and your families have made.

In times of war and in times of peace, heroes among us have stepped forward. You are those heroes. You stood in the face of dangers known and unknown and protected us from threats from around the world. You sacrificed so much, asked for so little in return, other than the freedom you fought do defend. On behalf of all Texans, I want to thank you for your commitment to our country.

Texans have played a powerful role in defending this nation. More than a million have served. Many more have trained and lived on military installations in the Lone Star State. And today, Texas is the proud home to almost two million veterans, active-duty military, Reserve & National Guard and their families.

I am grateful to the Texas VFW for all you do to help those who have served. The support, fellowship and financial assistance you provide for our Texas veterans, for those on active duty and for those who return home broken from battle is critical to ensure our veterans are respected, that their sacrifices are recognized and their return to civilian life is eased.

But there is more we must do. First we must improve your access to healthcare. No veteran who has fought for this country should be denied access to healthcare because of bureaucratic bungling at the Veteran’s Administration. Having served on the frontlines, you should go to the front of the line to get the healthcare you need.

The VA in Washington is falling short of its obligations. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the RGV. Even the President recognizes this. On a trip to the RGV in 2008, Barack Obama said, “We need a VA hospital right here in the Valley.” Veterans shouldn’t have to drive 200 miles for treatment. It’s now 2015 and I’m calling on the President to keep his word. It’s time to build that VA hospital in the Rio Grande Valley. This week – as Governor – I sent a request to the President asking that he fulfill his promise to build that hospital to care for our veterans in the RGV.

I am glad Gov. Abbott did this. The left needs to learn that our Veterans and troops should be respected and how the left would have nothing if it were not for our Veterans.

Democrat Texas State Rep Wins Re-Election, Then Is Convicted On Six Charges

Democrat Texas State Rep Wins Re-Election, Then Is Convicted On Six Charges


It has been an up-and-down week for Texas State Representative Ron Reynolds. On Tuesday, Reynolds, an attorney and Democrat representing Missouri Springs, coasted to an easy re-election, winning 66 percent of the vote against his Republican opponent. Wednesday, he was in a Montgomery County courtroom — not to represent a client, but to face trial for 10 felony counts of “barratry,” the illegal solicitation of clients by attorneys commonly referred to as “ambulance chasing.” Finally, on Friday, he managed to avoid a felony conviction, but was found guilty of six misdemeanor counts for a lesser charge of “solicitation of professional employment.”

As Breitbart Texas previously reported, Reynolds has had multiple ethical and legal problems since being admitted to the Texas Bar in 2000, including having his license to practice law suspended twice by the Texas Bar and a $10,000 fine by the Texas Ethics Commission for failing to file required campaign finance disclosures, which he failed to pay until after the Texas Attorney General sued him to collect and the Comptroller placed a “warrant hold” on his state reimbursement checks. These problems, coupled with his lack of legislative accomplishments, led Texas Monthly to brand him one of the “Worst Legislators of 2013.”

Texas Man Gets Ticket From Red Light Camera; His Response Will Make Lovers Of The Constitution Proud!

Texas Man Gets Ticket From Red Light Camera; His Response Will Make Lovers Of The Constitution Proud!

A Texan, apparently, isn’t easily accepting the ticket he got in the mail after a camera allegedly caught him in a traffic violation. He penned a cheeky letter, citing constitutional violations and even a mathematical formula to show why he thinks the case should be dropped. But an officer with the camera division says there may be a flaw in his argument.

“As per the instructions, I’m writing to plead ‘not guilty’ to this charge,” the alleged Plano resident, who lives in a Dallas suburb and wrote the infraction occurred on March 20, said. “Although this option is said to result in this matter going to court; it is my suggestion that the charges simply be dropped. This suggestion comes out of respect for tax payers, and my request that their hard earned money not be wasted in such proceedings.”

The letter, posted to Reddit under the title “This is how my brother tries to get out of a speeding ticket,” then goes through the man’s reasoning.

“There is no evidence of my involvement with this alleged ‘crime,’ as well as the fact that I am not granted my 6th amendment right to face my ‘accuser’ (a camera); I see no way the government could prove my guilt beyond a reasonable doubt,” he continued. “I also see […] no legal requirement for me to implicate someone else in this process, as it is the government’s responsibility to prove a person’s guilt. It is also my 5th amendment right to remain silent on the matter.”

Should the case proceed to court, the man requested evidence from the prosecution and all maintenance records from the camera that allegedly caught his infraction. He also wrote that he wanted records for the traffic light itself, which he wrote based on a video he watch lasted only three seconds, “50 [percent] less of what it should for a zone of 40 mph speed limit.

Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst slammed the U.S. Bureau of Land Management

Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst slammed the U.S. Bureau of Land Management ....BLM ‘Makes My Blood Boil’

HOUSTON, TEXAS--Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst slammed the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in a statement today after Breitbart Texas revealed a federal plan to potentially seize mass tracts of privately-held land. The Lt. Governor said any such plan was “outrageous” and “made [his] blood boil.” The powerful state executive called on the Texas Attorney General to file a lawsuit against the BLM to blunt any federal designs for uncompensated “confiscation” of property.

“The federal government's history of arrogant overreach is approaching a new low with word the Bureau of Land Management is threatening to confiscate up to 90,000 acres of Texas land without compensation," Dewhurst said. "This is a federal land-grab, pure and simple and the BLM has done it before.”

Dewhurst touted his credentials on the matter, citing direct involvement in the 2000 Red River Boundary Compact during his time as the Texas Land Commissioner. The Lt. Governor directly challenged the legality of the BLM to inject itself in an ongoing dispute between states.

The Lieutenant Governor’s statement follows recent, exclusive commentary offered to Breitbart Texas from Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott that any action on the part of the BLM to invalidate private property claims will likely lead to a federal lawsuit.

“If I have to, I will make this our 31st lawsuit against the Obama Administration,” Abbott told Breitbart Texas.

The Texas Attorney General’s Office released a letter submitted to BLM Director Neil Kornze on April 22 demanding more information on any existing plans to stake federal claims to private lands. General Abbott particularly inquired as to what “procedural due process” would be afforded to land owners in the BLM’s crosshairs.

Current BLM documents obtained by Breitbart Texas indicate that a final decision as to whether the tracts of land along the Red River will not be rendered until mid-2017.

“The Red River is a popular recreation area for Oklahomans and Texans alike,” the BLM document states. “Portions of these lands are managed by the BLM and also have values as critical habitat for threatened and endangered species.”

I am so glad Abbott and Dewhurst are speaking out about this.

Sen. Ted Cruz reads William Barret Travis' “Victory or Death” letter from the Alamo, written Feb 24, 1836.

..."I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna — I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man — The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken — I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls — I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch — The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country — Victory or Death."

News has broken that Wendy Davis lied about her background. She is now playing victim blaming Greg Abbott.

It is her ex-husband who talked to a left-of-center Dallas reporter. It is also her ex-husband who asked a Texas District Court to issue a temporary restraining order against Wendy Davis in 2003.

In that order, the judge ordered that Wendy Davis “be immediately restrained from . . . using illegal drugs or consuming alcohol within 24 hours before or during the period of possession of or access to the child.”

Speaking of the child, at the time her twelve year old daughter requested her father serve as her managing conservator.

Greg Abbott Visits Santa Fe and San Marcos - Abbott for Gov. of Texas

He is one of the nation’s leading advocates for stopping the federal overreach of the Obama Administration, a defender of the Constitution, and a conservative to the core: Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Few leaders have amassed a record of defending state sovereignty like Greg Abbott. Abbott has filed more than two dozen lawsuits against the Obama Administration. He has taken on burdensome EPA regulations and succeeded. He fought ObamaCare all the way to the United States Supreme Court. He has stood on the solid ground of the 10th Amendment to protect local classrooms, and individual freedom.

A husband and father, Greg Abbott understands the importance of preserving Constitutional, traditional values – like faith, family and freedom for future generations. That’s why as the state’s chief law enforcement official, Abbott has made protecting children, families and values the focus of his administration.

Texas City To Militant Atheist Group Demanding They Don’t Pray Before Meetings: Go Pound Sand- God Bless Texas!

Texas City Stands up to Atheists Over Prayers at Government Meetings

New American

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) appears to be losing its intimidating touch as it goes about its business of trying to stop people from praying and expressing their faith in public. The atheist group’s latest attack has come against the city council of League City, Texas, which has included prayer by local clergy in its regular government meetings since the early 1960s.

In a July 15 letter to Mayor Tim Paulissen and the League City Council, the FFRF went through its customary paces in attempting to browbeat the city fathers into submission. Appealing to the First Amendment’s supposed “separation of state and church,” the godless group’s staff attorney, Elizabeth Cavell, called the city’s tradition of allowing both local residents and government officials to open the meetings in prayer of “dubious legality,” insisting that such prayers are “unnecessary, inappropriate, and divisive.”

Cavell advised that while government officials “are free to pray privately or to worship on their own time in their own way,” they “do not need to worship on taxpayers’ time.” Cavell complained that inviting council members and locals to offer invocations at the government meetings “is coercive and beyond the authority of any government.”

While citing a selection of court cases to buttress the FFRF’s case against public prayer, Cavell conceded that there is no clear precedent for her group to demand that the city end its tradition, since courts have issued conflicting opinions that make the legal landscape on the issue “unstable.” The only warning she could muster was that prayer at government meetings “continues to be litigated, divisive, and problematic for local governments across the nation precisely because of this instability.”

She dubiously suggested that the “best course” for the city would be “to halt the prayers. If you wish to pray prior to the meeting, do so on your own time in your own way — do not make it part of the secular business of your local government.”

As it happened, Mayor Paulissen and the city council appeared to be disinclined to follow the FFRF’s self-serving advice. Paulissen told the Houston Chronicle that he and the other city fathers had no plans to drop the 52-year tradition of opening council meetings with an invocation.

This is against our Constitution!...San Antonio Seeks To Ban Anyone Who Opposes Homosexuality From Running For City Council, Being Appointed To A Board

San Antonio Seeks To Ban Anyone Who Opposes Homosexuality From Running For City Council, Being Appointed To A Board

Unprecedented’ language targets those with traditional values

The San Antonio City Council is doing some housecleaning to combine all of its anti-discrimination rules and ordinances into one. The consolidated ordinance states a desire to adopt a “comprehensive and expanded non-discrimination policy with revisions to outdated terminology.”

According to Pastor Charles Flowers of Faith Outreach International, the city leaders want to add two categories to the policy: sexual orientation and gender identity.

“The ordinance also says that if you have at any point demonstrated a bias – without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised – that you cannot get a city contract,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract.”

Moreover, according to a draft of the revised policy, no one who has spoken out against homosexuality or the transgender lifestyle can run for city council or be appointed to a board. Flowers says the Arizona-based legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom has taken a look at the ordinance.

“They said they’ve never seen this kind of language in any other ordinance in any other city that they’ve dealt with,” the pastor shares. “It is unprecedentedly wrong – and of course the citizens of San Antonio must stop it.”

Attorney General Greg Abbott a Conservative Announces Gubernatorial Bid

Perseverance Our lives are changed by single moments, especially the ones we never see coming.

Conservative Texas attorney general announces gubernatorial bid

Republican Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a social conservative who once joked his job consists of "getting up in the morning, suing Barack Obama, then going home," announced on Sunday he would seek his party's nomination for governor.

Abbott's announcement came after three-term Governor Rick Perry, who unsuccessfully sought the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, said last week he would not seek re-election.

"When it comes to our freedom and our future, I will never, never stop fighting," Abbott told several hundred cheering supporters at an outdoor rally on a humid afternoon.

Supporters fanned themselves with yellow cardboard fans distributed by the campaign that were emblazoned with the message "fast cars, firearms, and freedom, it's a Texas thing." Many wore yellow t-shirts featuring the campaign symbol, a snake wound around the letter "A" under the words, "Don't Tread on Me."

Abbott has filed 27 federal lawsuits challenging Obama administration policies related to gun rights, health care, Environmental Protection Agency mandates and other issues. He cited his legal activism as a qualification for the job of governor.

"The very day the president signed Obamacare into law, I took him to court to protect our constitutional rights," Abbott said. "I know the Constitution. I have enforced the Constitution, suing an overreaching federal government."

Among the endorsements for Abbott read at the rally was a statement from Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz Of Texas. The Tea Party favorite served as Abbott's solicitor general, an appointed position, before being elected to the Senate last year.

"Abbott is a leader in the fight for liberty and for the Constitution," Cruz said in the statement.

Abbott is a really good man, I sure hope he wins.

Governor Rick Perry To Sign Bill To Train Teachers As Armed Marshals

Governor Rick Perry To Sign Bill To Train Teachers As Armed Marshals

The Texas house and senate have passed a bipartisan bill that is on its way to Governor Rick Perry to sign which will allow schools to train and maintain teachers as “armed marshals” on campuses.

“We’ve created a new class of law enforcement officers here in Texas to protect our kids in a moment of crisis,” said State Rep. Jason Villalba (R)

The AP claims that this bill follows a “relaxing” of gun restrictions.

This measure doesn’t help anyone because the gun must remain in a lockbox, not in the possession of the teacher at all times. However, it will cost the taxpayers money in order to provide the lockboxes, train, provide ammunition and weapons for those teachers making the cut.

Some teacher groups are pleading for armed professional security and they opposed the bill. Be careful what you wish for.

Texas teachers are already permitted to carry guns in class with the permission of their local school boards. However, a small number of districts have actually granted that permission.

Law enforcement officials also warned lawmakers that teachers with guns were at risk of being shot by police responding to emergencies at schools. However, if teachers are armed, more than likely they would be able to remove any threat before police arrived. Thus, that argument is probably not a good one.

I have been no friend of the public education system and have openly stated so. I think children can best be educated at home, not in a state run school. I also think children are best protected in their home where their parents are not restricted by lockboxes and state approval to defend themselves and their families.

What should be taking place is that Texas should take the lead and simply let teachers and school officials carry their weapons at school, not keep them in a lock box where they are doing no one any good.

Senator Brian Birdwell (R) said the concern over law-abiding citizens possessing guns on campus is misdirected: “The Second Amendment is not about the gun, it’s about the right to self-preservation.”

Wild Thing's comment..............

One thing for sure, Texas will always take a stand on people being able to protect themselves and that is so wonderful.

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas): “Democrats Worship Abortion”

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) : “Democrats Worship Abortion”

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) on Monday attempted to tie Democrats to Philadelphia abortion doctor and recently convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell.

In a statement released shortly after Gosnell was found guilty of three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of three infants born alive at his medical clinic, Stockman said the crimes had “exposed the horrors and inhumanity of legalized abortion.”

“Despite the blood-soaked horror of Gosnell’s clinic, Democrats refuse to loosen their embrace of unrestricted, unregulated, taxpayer-funded abortion on demand,” he continued. “Democrats do not want abortion to be safe or rare. Democrats oppose even the most basic of health and safety standards for abortion mills. Democrats don’t care how many women are maimed, infected with diseases or die on the routinely-filthy abortion mills. Democrats worship abortion with same fervor the Canaanites worshipped Molech.”

Wild Thing's comment.................

I agree, it certainly does seems so. It is hypocritical to me how they love abortion and hate the death penalty when one is about an innocent baby and the other is about a person that has committed horrendous crimes.

Raw Video Captures Massive Explosion at Waco Fertilizer Plant – Video

Raw Video Captures Massive Explosion at Waco Fertilizer Plant

Dozens injured in fertilizer plant explosion; jarring video shows explosion's size and force

WACO, Texas — An explosion at a fertilizer plant near Waco Wednesday night injured dozens of people and sent flames shooting high into the night sky, leaving the factory a smoldering ruin and causing major damage to surrounding buildings.

The blast at West Fertilizer in West, a community about 20 miles north of Waco, happened shortly before 8 p.m. and could be heard as far away as Waxahachie, 45 miles to the north.

There was no immediate word from officials about fatalities or the severity of the explosion, as Texas Gov. Rick Perry said state officials were also waiting for details about the extent of the damage.

"We are monitoring developments and gathering information as details continue to emerge about this incident," Perry said in a statement. "We have also mobilized state resources to help local authorities. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of West, and the first responders on the scene."

But aerial footage showed fires still smoldering in the ruins of the plant and in several surrounding buildings, and people being treated for injuries on the flood-lit local football field, which had been turned into a staging area for emergency responders.

Debby Marak told The Associated Press that when she finished teaching her religion class Wednesday night, she noticed a lot of smoke in the area across town near the plant, which is near a nursing home. She said she drove over to see what was happening, and that when she got there, two boys came running toward her screaming that the authorities ordered everyone out because the plant was going to explode.

She said she drove about a block when the blast happened.

"It was like being in a tornado," Marak, 58, said by phone. "Stuff was flying everywhere. It blew out my windshield."

"It was like the whole earth shook."

She drove 10 blocks and called her husband and asked him to come get her. When they got to their home about 2 miles south of town, her husband told her what he'd seen: a huge fireball that rose like "a mushroom cloud."

More than two hours after the blast, there were still fires smoldering in what was left of the plant and in others burning nearby. The roof of what appeared to be a housing complex of some kind had collapsed. In aerial footage from Dallas' NBC affiliate, WDFW, dozens of emergency vehicles could be seen amassed at the scene. Entry into West was slow-going, as the roads were jammed with emergency vehicles rushing in to help out.

Authorities set up a staging area on the local high school's football field, which was lit up with floodlights. Ambulances and several dozen injured people could be seen being taken away or seated in wheelchairs as they are treated and await transport.

Department of Public Safety troopers were using their squad cars to transport those injured by the blast and fire at the plant in West, a community north of Waco, Gayle Scarbrough, a spokeswoman for the department's Waco office, told television station KWTX. She said six helicopters were also en route to help out.

Glenn A. Robinson, the chief executive of Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center in Waco, told CNN that his hospital had received 66 injured people for treatment, including 38 who were seriously hurt. He said the injuries included blast injuries, orthopedic injuries, large wounds and a lot of lacerations and cuts. The hospital has set up a hotline for families of the victims to get information, he said.

Robinson did not immediately return messages from the AP.

American Red Cross crews from across Texas were being sent to the site, the organization said. Red Cross spokeswoman Anita Foster said the group was working with emergency management officials in West to find a safe shelter for residents displaced from their homes. She said teams from Austin to Dallas and elsewhere are being sent to the community north of Waco.

A West Fire Department dispatcher said any casualties would be transported to hospitals in Waco, which is about 90 miles north of Austin.

The explosion knocked out power to many area customers and could be heard and felt for miles around.

Brad Smith, who lives 45 miles north of West in Waxahachie, told the station that he and his wife heard what sounded like a thunderclap.

Lydia Zimmerman, told KWTX that she, her husband and daughter were in their garden in Bynum, 13 miles from West, when they heard multiple blasts.

"It sounded like three bombs going off very close to us," she said.

UPDATE: from FOX News

Ted Cruz Not Backing Down: Yes, Harvard Law’s Faculty Is Infested With Marxists

Ted Cruz Not Backing Down: Yes, Harvard Law’s Faculty Is Infested With Marxists

Sen. Ted Cruz’s office has chided the New Yorker for calling a three-year-old speech news, but has confirmed that the Texas Republican believed that the Harvard Law faculty had numerous self-described Communists.

Cruz, according to the New Yorker, said that there were a dozen Marxists on the law school faculty committed to overthrowing the U.S. government when he attended Harvard during the 1990s. But according to Cruz, there was but a single Republican on the same faculty.

Catherine Frazier, a spokeswoman for the senator, told a conservative website that the Texas Republican’s 2010 speech was substantively correct.

“It’s curious that the New Yorker would dredge up a three-year-old speech and call it ‘news,’” Frazier told The Blaze.

“Regardless, Senator Cruz’s substantive point was absolutely correct: in the mid-1990s, the Harvard Law School faculty included numerous self-described proponents of ‘critical legal studies’ — a school of thought explicitly derived from Marxism – and they far outnumbered Republicans.”

Here is a video report from Austin, Texas of Sen. Ted Cruz visiting a Weapons Manufacturer. While there, Cruz did not back down one iota in the face of the liberal media onslaught against him for daring to ask hard questions about President Obama, the Benghazi Scandal, and Obama Defense Nominee Chuck Hagel.

Cruz fired right back at the media:

“A lot of media attention has been focused on the attacks that have been leveled on me, and I would encourage all of you, if you want to write stories on that, great!. Knock yourself out! But I would ask, for every ten stories attacking me, perhaps write one story on the substance of Chuck Hagel’s record.”

Storm Dumps Waist-high Hail in Texas Panhandle

A motorist sits in a truck partially buried in slushy hail near Amarillo, Texas. Weather service crews are assessing the damage from a Texas Panhandle storm that dumped several feet of nickel-sized hail, stranded motorists in muddy, hail drifts and closed a highway for several hours.


Maintenance crews worked Thursday to clear roads after a storm dumped several inches of hail on parts of the Texas Panhandle, trapping motorists in muddy drifts that were waist-to-shoulder high.

The storm left so much hail in its wake that workers had to use snow plows to clear the piles from the road.

"It was crazy," National Weather Service Meteorologist Justyn Jackson said about the strange storm, which hit Wednesday afternoon. The hail was "real small" but there was a lot of it in a concentrated area, accumulating 2- to 4-feet deep, he said.

The rural area where the storm struck was mainly ranch land, about 25 miles north of Amarillo and south of Dumas. Rainwater gushed across the parched land, washing dirt and then mud into the hail, pushing it all onto U.S. 287, Potter County Sheriff Brian Thomas said.

"There were just piles of hail," said Maribel Martinez with the Amarillo/Potter/Randall Office of Emergency Management. "Some of the cars were just buried in hail and people were trapped in their cars."

Texas Launching Navy, Strengthening Border Forces

Texas launching navy, strengthening border forces

McALLEN, Texas — There may be no better view of the Texas-Mexico border than from a seat inside the state's newest law enforcement helicopter.

The Rio Grande Valley is the most heavily smuggled area in Texas, said Lt. Johnny Prince, a pilot for the Texas Department of Public Safety.

"Does a person in Dallas really care what's going on on the river?" he asked. "[How about] Atlanta, Georgia? New York? Detroit? All these drugs are moving into those cities."

High-speed pursuits where drug smugglers accelerate into oncoming traffic can sometimes be a daily occurrence in the Rio Grande Valley cities of Brownsville, Harlingen and McAllen.

State troopers took News 8 on patrol over the international border as they looked for drug smugglers.

"We're not stopping it, but we're making it a lot more difficult and we're making a lot more seizures," Prince said.

That's causing the cartels to adjust as well.

In one pursuit video captured by the DPS helicopter, a smuggler driving a Dodge pickup truck is seen fleeing a police officer. Smugglers like this now often head immediately back to the border.

In this case, the driver jumped out of the cab as the truck rolled into the Rio Grande. But the video also reveals what the cartel is doing differently.

It now sends boats over to unload tens of thousands of dollars in drugs before police seize them.

"They were losing a lot of money," Prince explained. "So one of the things they decided to do, is try to recover the commodity — their drugs — back to Mexico to smuggle it another day."

The new helicopter is part of a growing presence on the Texas border by the Department of Public Safety, but next month it's about to launch its own fleet of gunboats.

"It sends a message: Don't mess with Texas," said Jose Rodriguez, Texas DPS Regional Commander.

The state is spending almost $3.5 million in tax money for six 34-foot gunboats, each which can operate in as little as two feet of water. The vessels are outfitted with automatic weapons and bulletproof shielding.

The state's first boat is scheduled to be launched next month to operate alongside the Border Patrol.

"One agency cannot do this alone," Rodriguez said.

The gunboats will be looking for suspicious scenes, like another one the DPS helicopter captured in December showing 10 men riding down the river and sitting on bundles of drugs that were no doubt destined for the U.S.

The $4 million chopper didn't cost taxpayers a dime. Troopers said they bought it with seized drug money to add a bird's eye view of the border — courtesy of the cartels.

Anti-American Obama Sends Wildfire Aid To Mexico, But NOT Texas ~ Pathetic!

Sends Wildfire Aid To Mexico, Not Texas

Houston News

Former FEMA director outraged, but local counties say they’re getting Federal money.

Just last month the U.S. sent two Air force cargo planes to help Mexico battle back wildfires in the northern part of it’s country, fires that burned 386 square miles. It’s a move that West Texas Congressman Francisco Canseco (R-Fort Stockton) thinks is a hypocritical one by the Obama administration as Texas has requested the same sort of federal aid but has been denied it.

“386 square miles pales with the 2.5 million acres of land that have been burned and scorched beyond recognition,” says Canseco.

And Former FEMA Director Michael Brown thinks that a “snub” like this reeks of politics as he believes Texas deserves a similar response from the federal government.

“I think what’s going on is we see the Chicago style politics. I’m amazed that he’s put FEMA in this awkward position of not allowing federal assistance,” says Brown.

According to the Obama Administration however federal assistance has been flowing to Texas by way of grant money, of which several counties are in the process of applying for.

"We have already qualified for the federal mutual aid grant which will help local volunteer fire departments recover up to 75 percent of the funds that they utilized during the fire, so that was correct in that stand point," says County Judge David Nicklas of Palo Pinto County, an area ravaged by the wildfires.

So far Texas has spent an estimated 70 million dollars combating the states wildfires.

Gov. Perry On The Laura Ingraham And What He Thinks Of America Hating Obama Speech

Texas Gov. Rick Perry on the Laura Ingraham Radio Show, where he blasted President Obama for his ridiculous comments on Border Security in El Paso the other day. Obama proclaimed the border to be secure, even saying the Border Fence is “essentially completed.”

Perry reacted by saying about Obama:

“This is a President who is more interested in trying out for Saturday Night Live it seems like. . . . . the guy’s a stand-up comic, and that was what he was playing to. The fact of the matter is, Americans don’t want a stand-up comic for the President of the United States. . . . Anyone who knows what’s happening on the border of Texas and Mexico – or for that matter the southern border of the United States with Mexico – realizes this is not comedy, there are people’s lives in jeopardy every day.”

Perry had a stern warning of what will happen if Obama continues to not take Border Security seriously:

“You’re going to see United States citizens killed if this administration does not take border security seriously. They don’t.”

Gov. Rick Perry Declines Obama's Invite ~ Thank God For Gov. Perry's Response!!

Perry declines Obama's invite

Governor Rick Perry declined an invitation to greet Obama in El Paso for his speech on amnesty.

Last week the Governor Perry blasted the Obama Administration for neglecting the wildfires in Texas.

Rick Perry has declined the White House’s request that he greet President Obama when Air Force One lands in Texas on Tuesday, the Republican governor’s office says.

“We did try to arrange something with the White House,” Lucy Nashed, a spokeswoman for Perry, told POLITICO. “They asked us if we wanted to meet him out on the tarmac in El Paso, but we weren’t able to work anything out, based on the fact that it’s probably going to be a 10-minute greeting.”

Perry, who met Obama at the airport when the president traveled to Austin in August, accused the administration two weeks ago of denying aid to his state to help recover from wildfires.

I am so glad he declined! Thank God!

Perry: "There is a point in time where you say, 'Hey, what's going on here?" Gov. Perry had requested a federal declaration of emergency for Texas where wildfires rage across the state. He is yet to hear back from the Administration. This doesn't surprise me one bit, how many times did we watch Obama do the same type of thing to Gov. Bobby Jindal during the gulf oil crisis? There's no doubt in my mind this is deliberate.

Rick Perry’s trying to ‑‑ been trying to get federal help in Texas for, what, two weeks now, 14 days?

Governor says Obama leaving Texas in the dust


Texas Governor Rick Perry criticized the Obama administration on Thursday for not responding to a request for a disaster aid for the parched state, where wildfires have scorched nearly 2 million acres.

"You have to ask, 'Why are you taking care of Alabama and other states?' I know our letter didn't get lost in the mail," Perry, a Republican and frequent critic of the federal government, said after addressing a Texas emergency management conference.

President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency for Alabama, where storms -- including a tornado that ravaged Tuscaloosa on Wednesday -- killed nearly 200 people this week.

The White House said Obama will visit the state on Friday. "There is a point in time where you say, 'Hey, what's going on here?'" Perry said.

Perry had requested a federal declaration of emergency for Texas as the wildfires began to rage across the large state. The request has not been answered, although several federal agencies are supplying firefighters.

"They watch TV, they know what's going on here, they can recognize that there is going to be a request for assistance, a request for help," Perry said.

Two volunteer firefighters have died battling the Texas wildfires, which have destroyed more than 900 buildings.

A federal major disaster declaration could reimburse Texas and local governments 75 percent of the cost of their response. Local departments and the Texas Forest Service have spent more than $60 million since September 1 responding to wildfires, forest service spokeswoman Linda Moon said.

In the past, Perry has charged that the Obama administration is punishing Texas. The Republican governor has been an outspoken opponent of the federal health reform law, and the state is suing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over a proposal to end Texas' independent air quality permitting program for factories and refineries.

Also Perry was totally snubbed when Obama got off the plane last month/

Nine Texas Democrats Switch to GOP

Nine Texas Democrats switch to the GOP

The not at all slow death of the Texas Democratic Party continues. I’ve just gotten word via press release that nine local Democrats up in northeast Texas just switched parties to become Republicans.

From the release:

In what is believed to be one of the largest number of officeholders to change party affiliation in Texas, Lamar County GOP Chairman John Kruntorad and State Representative Erwin Cain announced today that 9 local elected Democrats have joined the Republican Party. This announcement follows unprecedented election gains by the GOP in 2008 and 2010 as Northeast Texans increasingly identify with the conservative platform of the Republican Party.

Those joining the Republican Party include District Attorney Gary Young; Pct. 1 County Commissioner Lawrence Mallone; Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace (JP) Don Denison; Pct. 3 JP Tim Risinger; Pct. 4 JP Ken Ruthart; Pct. 5, Place 1 JP Cindy Ruthart; Pct. 1 Constable Madaline Chance; Pct. 3 Constable Larry Cope; and Pct. 5 Constable Gene Hobbs.

They join a few dozen who switched from D to R in Texas leading up to the 2010 elections, and the two state Reps. who switched parties after the elections (bringing the total of state Reps. switching from D to R, to three). And today’s group of switchers is jumping ship in an area that has been considered yellow dog Democrat for generations.

Across Texas, 60,000 babies of noncitizens get U.S. birthright

Dallas News

As Republican members of Congress press for changes to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, preventing automatic citizenship for babies born to illegal immigrants, opponents insist the debate is not really about babies.

Instead, they say it is about politics and votes – not fixing the immigration system.

Still, the debate could resonate in Texas, where not only 1.5 million illegal immigrants are estimated to reside but at least 60,000 babies are added to their households annually.

Parkland Memorial Hospital delivers more of those babies than any other hospital in the state. Last year at Parkland, 11,071 babies were born to women who were noncitizens, about 74 percent of total deliveries. Most of these women are believed to be in the country illegally.

State Rep. Rafael Anchía, D-Dallas, accused Republicans of using the births to generate an explosive election issue.

"They're pulling the pin on the immigration grenade," he said. "It's all about the November elections and continuing to use the immigration issue as a wedge to win votes this fall."

But to Republicans, the emerging national debate is long overdue, considering that millions of immigrants have been living illegally in this country for years.

"They're violating our law, and we're giving their children the benefit of U.S. citizenship," said state Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, whose 2009 bill in the Legislature would have challenged the birthright of immigrant children.

That bill died in committee, although Berman has vowed to file another version next year that would prohibit the state from issuing birth certificates to the children of "illegal aliens."

"I've checked the Congressional Record for when the 14th Amendment was written, and the author was quoted as saying that it did not apply to foreigners," he said. "There's no question in my mind about it."

Amendment's history

The 14th Amendment was adopted in 1868 as a way to block state laws that prevented former slaves from becoming citizens. It also effectively overruled the Dred Scott decision of 1857 in which the U.S. Supreme Court declared that slaves were mere property and could not become citizens.

The amendment offered a broad definition of citizenship in one simple sentence: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States."

Donald Kerwin, a vice president of the Migration Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., said he feared that altering the current interpretation of that law "would essentially restore the Dred Scott reasoning and create a hereditary underclass in the United States.
"These children, who didn't break any laws, would have no rights and nowhere to go," he said. "It's a very extreme position."

The difference in this year's effort to change the 14th Amendment is that prominent Republicans are offering their support and making public statements demanding a national debate of the issue.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, called Wednesday for a review of "birthright citizenship," after concluding that illegal immigrants had taken advantage of the post-Civil War constitutional provision.
"We need to have hearings," he said. "We need to consult constitutional scholars and study what the implications are."
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said he might introduce a constitutional amendment that would repeal the citizenship provision of the amendment.

And both Arizona Republican senators, John McCain and John Kyl, announced that the time was ripe for such a change.

"If both parents are here illegally, should there be a reward for their illegal behavior?" Kyl said recently on a Sunday morning talk show.

Changing the Constitution, however, is not as simple as getting a bill through Congress by majority vote.

16 percent of births

In Texas, between 60,000 to 65,000 babies achieve U.S. citizenship annually by being born in the state's hospitals, according to a tally released by the state's Health and Human Services Commission. Last year, such births represented almost 16 percent of the total births statewide.

Between 2001 and 2009, births to illegal immigrant women totaled 542,152 in Texas alone.

"The next 10 years will be an even more transformative decade demographically for Texas," said Dr. Roberto Calderon, an associate history professor at the University of North Texas and a Latin American expert following the debate.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Actually conservatives want the government to quit making a joke of the 14th amendment and start applying it as it was written. It never allowed for anchor babies of illegals, in fact was written in such a way as to prevent that.

But this is what is happening it seems......

""... and subject to the jurisdiction thereof..." "

Yep .....That's IT in a nutshell!

Kudos to the Dallas Morning News for a good investigative article. I bet their getting flack for revealing the truth.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Texas Moves to Affirm Sovereignty Under 10th Amendment ~ God Bless TEXAS


Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.


4/9/2009 - AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry today joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The resolution reaffirms states' rights according to the 10th amendment

HCR 50 is authored by Reps. Creighton, Berman, Hughes, Gattis and Guillen

Gov. Perry Backs Resolution Affirming Texas’ Sovereignty Under 10th Amendment

Office of the Gov. Rick Perry

Gov. Rick Perry joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”
Perry continued: "Millions of Texans are tired of Washington, DC trying to come down here to tell us how to run Texas."

A number of recent federal proposals are not within the scope of the federal government’s constitutionally designated powers and impede the states’ right to govern themselves. HCR 50 affirms that Texas claims sovereignty under the 10th Amendment over all powers not otherwise granted to the federal government.

It also designates that all compulsory federal legislation that requires states to comply under threat of civil or criminal penalties, or that requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding, be prohibited or repealed.

HCR 50 is authored by Representatives Brandon Creighton, Leo Berman, Bryan Hughes, Dan Gattis and Ryan Guillen.

Text of the Resolution:

H.C.R. No. 50

WHEREAS, The United States Supreme Court has ruled in New York v. United States, 112 S. Ct. 2408 (1992), that congress may not simply commandeer the legislative and regulatory processes of the states; and

WHEREAS, A number of proposals from previous administrations and some now pending from the present administration and from congress may further violate the Constitution of the United States; now, therefore, be it

Wild Thing's comment.......

God bless these people, Gov. Perry is standing up to Hussein Soutpiel puppet Obama and telling him, “Don’t Mess with Texas!”

Texas is the first and only State that was a Republic, legally, prior to joining the United States Union. As a sovereign state, and a Republic, if something bad comes down , Texas is their own country again, if they so choose, regardless of what the Feds say. Every other State has to have permission from the Reps in Washington D.C. before it can happen, however, the State of Texas does not, as their Constitution was in place prior to accepting and adopting themselves as candidates for State-status in USA.
