The Washington Post offered a splashy profile of freshman Sen. Ted Cruz on Tuesday, and the most surprising thing about it was a lack of venom. The reporter described “the self-assured, nonstop talker who won national debate championships as an undergraduate at Princeton.”
Cruz “honed his reputation early in his career as a dazzling Supreme Court advocate” and now “has bashed into the national conversation,” most notably in attacking establishment Republicans, who’ve called him and other young Senate conservatives “wacko birds.”
This story, however, wasn’t as surprising as James Carville’s declaration on ABC’s “This Week.” He was typically blunt — but in a wholly unexpected direction. “I think he is the most talented and fearless Republican politician I’ve seen in the last 30 years.”

(NaturalNews) While tens of millions of Americans believe President Obama may be the most divisive president since Abraham Lincoln, at least one U.S. senator thinks he may be the most abusive in terms of wielding power.
Granted, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is a political opponent, to be sure, so some may be prone to take his comments in that context. But in reality Cruz is more than just a political opponent:
He is also a constitutional expert who has served as a law clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Reinquist; as an associate deputy attorney general in the U.S. Justice Department and as the director of policy planning at the U.S. Federal Trade Commission under President George W. Bush; and as Solicitor General for the state of Texas.

North Hills Hospital is proud to be hosting one of the largest emergency preparedness drills ever held in the state of Texas this week. We will be partnering with the North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council (NCTTRAC) and first responders from throughout North Texas to test our equipment and processes so that when a real disaster happens, we’re all ready to respond.
This drill is even timelier in the wake of the bombings at Monday’s Boston Marathon. Our prayers go out to the victims involved, and we are proud of the first responders – EMS, fire, police, race workers, and hospital staff – who so bravely cared for the injured.
If you live near North Hills Hospital, you will see a lot of activity in our parking lots over the next three days as the NCTTRAC sets up a mobile 140-bed hospital, along with dozens of ambulances, several AMBUS (multi-patient ambulances), and helicopters. This is only a drill and will simulate a hospital evacuation, something that might be necessary in the event of a tornado, hurricane, earthquake, or prolonged power failure.

Ron Paul has been retired from Congress for only a few months, but he’s certainly not shying away from politics. The former US representative has already announced his new project: the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity.
In a press release sent to the media Friday afternoon, the Ron Paul camp confirms that the long-time Texas representative will launch a think-tank of sorts in order to carry on his ideologies after his time in office has ended.
“After decades in and out of the US House of Representatives leading the call for a non-interventionist foreign policy and the protection of civil liberties, Dr. Paul is launching a revolutionary new vehicle to expand his efforts. The Institute will serve as the focal point of a new coalition that crosses political, ideological and party lines,” the statement begins.

Speaking to a group of reporters on a conference call, Abbott warned that the arms treaty “raises a red warning flag to anyone concerned about the liberties guaranteed to all Americans under the United States Constitution.”
“This treaty is a dangerous threat, not only to Second Amendment rights under the United States Constitution, but also erodes our constitutional liberties by placing more of the control of those liberties in the hands of bureaucrats at the United Nations.”

The state is on high alert after a second local district attorney was killed in less than two months.

Among them: Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Sarah Palin, all of whom starred at the Conservative Political Action Conference. For any one of these, the perfect choice for vice president should be David Petraeus.

Watch out for the cache of gold kept in the basement of the Federal Reserve Bank

It would be way overstating things to suggest that there could be a run on the cache of gold that is kept in the basement of the Federal Reserve Bank in New York. But in the wake of reports that Germany is undertaking a program to remove its gold from the Fed and return it to Germany, a bill has been introduced in the legislature of Texas to move the state’s gold bars held at a private bank in New York and transfer them to a depository in the Lone Star State.
The bill has been introduced at Austin by Representative Giovanni Capriglione. It would establish a depository in Texas itself for the state’s specie. It has been endorsed by Governor Perry. And Texas most famous former congressman, Ron Paul, has just sent us a cheerful telegram saying that if the bill passes, he’ll volunteer to go with Mr. Perry to “pick up our gold” — so long as the “governor brought along his body guards and the Texas Rangers.”
The measure introduced by Mr. Capriglione, a Republican of Southlake, is designed to bring back to Texas gold bars that the Texas Tribune reckons would fetch $1 billion. The Tribune reports they are owned by the University of Texas Investment Management Company, or UTIMCO. A report in the Washington Post and of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee says the gold Texas wants to bring home is on deposit in New York with a facility of HSBC.

“The popular media narrative is that this country has shifted away from conservative ideals, as evidenced by the last two presidential elections. That’s what they think. That’s what say. That might be true if Republicans had actually nominated conservative candidates in 2008 and 2012,” Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas) said in his address at CPAC this afternoon.
Perry also slammed President Obama for undocumented illegal immigration being released from detention centers due to sequestration cuts. “This president’s posture, it’d be laughable if he hadn’t taken it one step too far, dangerously releasing criminals onto our streets to make a political point,” Perry told the crowd at CPAC.
“When you have a federally-sponsored jailbreak, and don’t get confused, that’s exactly what that is — when you’ve had a federally-sponsored jailbreak, you’ve crossed the line from politics of spin to politics as a craven form of cynicism.”

Rep. Paul Broun: I was the first to call Obama a socialist
The Hill ^ | Jonathan Easley
Posted on Sunday, February 17, 2013 11:31:20 AM by JohnPDuncan
Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) boasted in a fundraising letter that he was the first member of Congress to call President Obama a “socialist who embraces Marxist-Leninist policies,” according to text acquired by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
“As a Member of the House of Representatives for the last few years, I have fought tooth-and-nail against President Obama’s agenda at every turn,” the letter reads in part. “I was the first Member of Congress to call him a socialist who embraces Marxist-Leninist policies like government control of health care and redistribution of wealth.”
Broun, who is running to fill the Georgia Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R), has made a name for himself by describing Obama as an extreme leftist. Late last month, Broun accused the president of following the Soviet Constitution.
Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago prior to becoming a U.S. senator.
Broun recently took steps to fill the role of former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) as a top critic of the Federal Reserve. One of his first actions in the 113th Congress was to introduce legislation authorizing a massive audit of the central bank. He also may be considering a primary challenge to Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.).
The sniper was gunned down by former Marine Eddie Routh at a Texas shooting range while Kyle was attempting to help Routh overcome his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from service in the war in Iraq. Paul’s comment on Twitter was as follows: “Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that ‘he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.’ Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense”
Some are smugly pointing out that this disorder can be treated by repeating the trauma-inducing phenomenon under controlled conditions, thus making a shooting range a plausible site to attempt to aid someone with PTSD. Of course, it is not this part of Paul’s Twitter comment that is being criticized as “appalling”–it’s the part of the statement that says “Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that ‘he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.’”

California and Texas follow at just under 7 percent of their populations, with New Jersey and Arizona rounding out the top five.

Republican senator Ted Cruz of Texas said Thursday that Barack Obama is “high on his own power” with regard to the president’s announced efforts on gun control. Speaking on Laura Ingraham‘s radio talk show, Cruz, who was just elected to the Senate last November, said “this is a president who has drunk the Kool-Aid.”
(Excerpt) Read more at weeklystandard.com …
Should President Barack Obama move towards enacting gun-control legislation by executive order it would be grounds for impeachment, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert tells Newsmax TV in an exclusive interview.
Obama has “already abused the law enough times that it’s just been staggering,” Gohmert said.
“It’s not a president who steps up and says: ‘You know what? Previous Congresses have passed the law — and it’s been signed into law, and I disagree with it, so I’m just going to create new law — and as I speak, so shall it be,’” Gohmert, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, tells Newsmax. “That’s not a president.”

Of course, if they do that, then they have to deal with their share of the public debt and other obligations they incurred in the union. Once they’ve done that, they’ve seceded. The Supreme Court has no say over this. After all, they’re an independent country.

The retirement of Congressman Ron Paul from the House of Representatives last week did not end the Texas libertarian’s influence in Congress. And if the first week of the new Congress is any indication, his influence has only multiplied.
Congressman Paul’s battles to audit and ultimately abolish the Federal Reserve Bank have been picked up by his former colleague Paul Broun of Georgia, who scored 92 percent on The New American‘s “Freedom Index” in the last Congress.
“I applaud Congressman Paul’s efforts. He was fighting for liberty,” Broun told The Hill newspaper, which covers Congress from Washington, D.C. The story, entitled “Georgia’s Broun keeps Ron Paul’s anti-Fed mission alive in new Congress,” details how Broun — like former Congressman Paul, a medical doctor — has continued the anti-Fed mantra of Ron Paul. “My plan is to pick up right where Congressman Paul left off,” Broun said on his congressional website, “I’m just going to stand on his shoulders and go forward in that same fight.”

Outgoing Republican Senator Ron Paul from Texas took on the National Rifle Association this week, arguing that the gun lobby‘s recent proposal to place armed guards at every U.S. school is ‘just another kind of violence.’
In a statement released on Monday, the uncompromising libertarian lawmaker said that the federal government should not try to ‘pursue unobtainable safety’ and claimed that Democrats and Republicans have ‘zero moral authority to legislate against violence.’
‘This is the world of government provided “security,” a world far too many Americans now seem to accept or even endorse,’ the 77-year-old congressman wrote on his website. ‘School shootings, no matter how horrific, do not justify creating an Orwellian surveillance state in America.’

I have lived all but four of my thirty two years in Connecticut. In that time I have heard about the haunted cemeteries, Revolutionary War ghosts and hidden psionic labs (more on all these in future issues).
Satanism in Connecticut, specifically Newtown, has been one I’ve often heard. It was only a few months ago when a friend came to me with tales of further satanic atrocities perpetrated in Newtown as told to her by a local nun. Once again the shadow of Lucifer‘s wing had apparently darkened the skies over this innocent hamlet. This was a respected nun at a well known school. If she too could fall under the sway of these rumors, then indeed they could not be ignored. Understanding the obvious connection between a woman of the cloth and satanic sensitivity, this was still a person of irreproachable reputation. And she was not alone.
There were multiple reasons for the Mexican War. One immediate cause was the American annexation of Texas; the Mexican government regarded this a declaration of war, and removed the Mexican minister from Washington. Another cause was American claims against Mexico arising from the Mexican revolutions.
Following Mexico’s independence from Spain, American and European cartographers fixed the Texas border at the Neuces River. Prior to Texas’s independence, the Neuces River was recognized as the northern boundary of Mexico. Spain had fixed the Neuces as a border in 1816, and the United States ratified it in the 1819 treaty by which the United States had purchased Florida and renounced claims to Texas.
Throughout the 1820s, Americans settled in the vast territory of Texas, often with land grants from the Mexican government. Their numbers soon alarmed the authorities, however, who prohibited further immigration in 1830. In 1834 General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna established a dictatorship in Mexico, and the following year Texans revolted when the new government abolished slavery.
Santa Anna defeated the American rebels at the celebrated siege of the Alamo in early 1836. On 21 April 1836 General Sam Houston with some 1,000 Texans under his command annihilated the 1,400-man army of Santa Anna. The Battle of San Jacinto lasted 18 minutes, and won Texas its independence from Mexico. When Texas declared its independence, it claimed as its territory an additional 150 miles of land, to the Rio Grande River. For almost a decade, Texas remained an independent republic.
This is what would have happened had the Keystone Cops had drones back in the day.

Editor’s note: this incident occurred in March. Sorry for the confusion.
In a recent investigative report by the Center for Responsive Politics and Hearst newspapers, the authors expressed concern that drones were being pushed into the domestic market before safety and ethics issues had been sufficiently addressed.

…..When Ron Paul says he wants to cut military spending on foreign wars, that is all that is generally heard. The whole story, that he does not want to cut DEFENSE spending, the funds which defend the country, does not get told.

Ron Paul was the highest rated 2012 presidential candidate in this poll, and in fact had tens of thousands more votes than Mitt Romney. Presidential candidate Ron Paul received more votes than President Obama.
Time Magazine took their poll and used that data to create their own list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2012. That list is now available. The 12-term Congressman from Texas has made the list.
