Supreme Court refuses to block Texas abortion restrictions
Finally a court does something right.
The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to block controversial Texas abortion restrictions that have been called some of the strictest in the country and have led a dozen abortion clinics in the state to stop performing the procedure.
The court by a 5-4 vote denied a request by Planned Parenthood to block a ruling by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, allowing key parts of the Texas abortion law to stay in effect while the lawsuit challenging the restrictions moves forward.
The four liberal justices who voted in favor of the request said they would have overturned the appeals court’s Oct. 31 ruling that allowed the law to take effect.
In its 20-page ruling, the panel of appeals court judges acknowledged that the law’s provision requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital “may increase the cost of accessing an abortion provider and decrease the number of physicians available to perform abortions.”
However, the panel said that the U.S. Supreme Court has held that having “the incidental effect of making it more difficult or more expensive to procure an abortion cannot be enough to invalidate” a law that serves a valid purpose, “one not designed to strike at the right itself.” The provision has led at least 12 clinics in the state to stop performing abortions since the ruling.
A spokeswoman for the Texas Attorney General’s Office said Tuesday said the office is “pleased” with the Supreme Court’s ruling.
“These are commonsense – and perfectly constitutional – regulations that further the state’s interest in protecting the health and safety of Texas women,” Lauren Bean said.
Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry also said he was happy with the court’s decision.
“This is good news both for the unborn and for the women of Texas, who are now better protected from shoddy abortion providers operating in dangerous conditions,” Perry said.
The appeals court panel left in place a portion of a previous judge’s order that prevents the state from enforcing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration protocol for abortion-inducing drugs in cases where the woman is between 50 and 63 days into her pregnancy. Doctors testifying before the court had said such women would be harmed if the protocol were enforced.
The appeals court’s order is temporary until it can hold a complete hearing, likely in January.
The restrictions gained notoriety when Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis launched a nearly 13-hour filibuster against them in June.
The law also bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and beginning in October 2014 requires doctors to perform all abortions in surgical facilities.
During the trial, officials for one chain of abortion clinics testified that they’ve tried to obtain admitting privileges for their doctors at 32 hospitals, but so far only 15 accepted applications and none have announced a decision.
Many hospitals with religious affiliations will not allow abortion doctors to work there, while others fear protests if they provide privileges.
Many have requirements that doctors live within a certain radius of the facility, or perform a minimum number of surgeries a year that must be performed in a hospital.

Join “Occupy the White House” Movement
Our illustrious president doesn’t seem to know about anything the people he is in charge of are doing. How can this be? Every time he is asked about problems going on in the government, his answer is always I didn’t know. He didn’t know about Fast and Furious gun scandal, he didn’t know about Benghazi, He didn’t know his main accomplishment in his presidency, Obamacare, was going to be such a failure, even though he has been told time after time.
Any other CEO of any business would have been fired for failure after failure. But this lunatic continues to sit in his comfy presidential seat. How can you people stand for it.
One of two things are happening, either Obama really doesn’t know what is going on in his administration, and he is incompetent. Or, Obama really does know and he is a pathological liar. Neither circumstance is good for Obama. Why should he care, he can’t run for re-election. He doesn’t have to worry about his legacy, because his worshipers will praise him no matter what he does.
Obama is the most disgusting president in our short history and if this would have been in the beginning of our country he would have been taken out of office by a well armed militia. Now days no one has the guts to stand up and do what is necessary to remove this idiot from office. Obama is lucky we don’t remove people from power like they do in Egypt or one of the many other foreign countries that aren’t afraid to fight for what they believe in.
I don’t condone violence against anyone and do not want anyone to use violence against this president nor any other president we disagree with. But what we can do as Americans is to come together and march on Washington D.C. and make it impossible for Obama to ignore us any longer. If we put enough pressure, and by pressure I mean shut down Washington D.C. until Obama agrees to resign, we can get it done.
How many of you people who call yourself Americans and Patriots would really join my call to shut down Washington D.C.? How many of you would join “Occupy the White House”? Right now this is the only thing I can think of that will get Obama to let go of his abuse of power. If we ban together and march on the white house in a non-violent matter in great enough numbers and I mean 2-3 million people would need to show up for it to work.
If this is something you think is worth fighting for, go to my Facebook page, Occupy White House and ‘Like’ the page, then leave a comment telling Obama we are coming.
50 Year Old Cartoon Predicts Future
What Did They Know That We Didn’t
Nation Shocked By Mass Killing
Yesterday the nation witnessed another mass killing. A Navy Yard was attacked by a lone shooter with a shotgun and two handguns, not an AR-15 like all the liberal news media reported.
Now of course they weapons ban talk will start. The left are just going to go bonkers over this one. So I urge all law abiding citizens to go and buy all the AR-15′s, assault rifles as you can. This will probably drive up the prices of those types of weapons again.
I am heading to my local gun dealer to pick up my AR-15 I had on lay away before the left tries to ban assault rifles again. Oh, if you have friends who you think might be capable of doing some kind of mass shooting, do us a favor and either turn him in or take him out before they do something stupid like this and ruin it for the rest of us.
Leave George Zimmerman Alone!
George Zimmerman’s life has been turned upside down and all around. He has spent the last 16 months of his life in and out of courts. You people (black and democrats) asked for justice, so George Zimmerman was areested, when the original prosecuter stated there was no case. So you got your way and got him arrested and tried.
So all you people got what you wanted. Now that the verdict has come and said he was not guilty you people are crying there is no justice. Then what the hell do you want. Isn’t it really that you want George Zimmerman lynched. You never really wanted justice, you wanted revenge and now that he has been found not guilty you want to find another way to get him.
Some say street justice will get him. That makes you no better than a murderer. You people have always had a double standard and I assume nothing will change there. So now you want your black attorney general to charge George with a civil rights violation and you also portray Trayvon Martin akin to other civil rights leaders. Trayvon Martin was a 17 yr old thug who robbed people. Did you see the lewt on his bed and him holding a handgun?
I am standing up and asking people who are tired of being called racists to stand up and protect George Zimmerman. Don’t let these thugs win. You so called white politicians who stand with the Trayvon Martin family, you are just looing out for your vote. Don’t worry you won’t have to worry about that seat you hold, you won’t hold it much longer. We are going to vote your ass out of that seat come the next elections.
George, keep your head up. People do support you and what you did. You had the right to protect yourself against the 17 yr old thug. We have your back. Don’t let this ruin your life, even though I know people are going to make this hard for you. If I were you I would leave this sorry place behind and move over seas somewhere and start over.
People, you got what you wanted and tried George Zimmerman. You can’t go back now because you don’t like the verdict. The U.S. Justice Dept should be ashamed of themselves if they bring civil rights charges against George Zimmerman. But, I won’t put anything past the most curropt attorney general in history, Eric Holder. George get out of this country as fast as you can.
Leave George Zimmerman alone.

Can Obama Keep Lying?
When will people really start to call out Obama on his lies. He has stood behind the white house podium and lied to the American people time after time. Obama is Narcissistic. He believes his own lies, so it is up to us to show him we don’t believe his lies. The sad truth is no one has the guts to go up against thi guy. They don’t want to lose their privledges.
The press won’t call him out, if they do they know they won’t get invited to white house events. Obama knows this. Obama knows he holds the press by their balls.
The Obama whirehouse has tried to act like they are above reproach for the years they have spent there. The president is reaping what he has sewn. I am beginning to lose count of all the scandals going on with this administration.
There is the Bengazi attacks, that the Obama administration has flat out lied about. Obama wouldn’t have been re-elected if the truth had come out before the election. Actually it was out, but the main stream media would not report it.
Then we have the AP scandal. This just shows you that Obama will stab anyone in the back, even his closest friends, if it serves Obama’s purpose.
Now we have the IRS attacks on American citizens. Obama and his cronies targeted republican organizations with his IRS attack dogs, costing us the election. Someone better go to jail over this. Read more about these stories inside.
You won’t believe what this doctor has done to thousands of babies, babies born alive. This will disgust you to the core, unless you are a democrat, then this will be business as usual for you.

This Just In – Walmart Tells Me To Bring Back Shotgun
Walmart just called me about an hour ago. The lady on the phone asked if this was Shon Jimenez, I responded “yes”. She asked if I bought a Remington 870 last October. I told her I had. Shen then stated I had to bring back the shotgun, because the employee who sold it to me did not do the proper background check. I told her he did, and I waitined 45 minutes for the background to come back.
This was 7 months ago. She stated I had no choice in the matter, that I had to bring it back and submit to another background check. To me, this is ridiculous, 7 month after the fact. Oh, and she told me if I did not pass the background check they would not release the shotgun to me. It’s been mine for 7 months. I have hunted with it, and bagged 12 Dove’s with it. So why after 7 months? I assume they were going back through records of purchases. Why? Why were they looking at who bought firearms last year?
This is another reason background checks are a bad idea. It’s registration. With registration comes confiscation. They want our guns back and will probably do anything to get them back, like say “the employee who did your background check did not do it right, so you got to bring the gun back”. I am debating whether I am going to take it back. I bought it legally, and I waited for the background check to come back approved. I was there when he was on the damn phone with them. So what do you think I should do?
Resolution to this story: I took the shotgun in and they called in my background again and I was of course cleared to make the purchase, again. The reason they called me back in was the DEA had payed them a visit the day before to audit their records and they found an error in my record of purchase. The kid who check me out used my Utah concealed weapon permit as a means of identification and Texas law states only a Texas concealed weapon permit may be used.
The Real Obama
OBAMA’S PLAN HATCHED AT COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY President Obama and I were college classmate at Columbia University, class of ’83. I know all too well how mindlessly liberal the students and faculty of that institution can be, and Barack Obama is certainly no exception. My time at Columbia made it crystal clear: liberals always believe they are morally superior. While they publicly state that their mission is to save the world from prejudice, patriotism, racism, greed, and inequality, they are, in fact, hostile and resentful towards anyone who has achieved self-made success through American values. It is in this cesspool of intolerance that Obama and his Marxist cronies hatched a secret plan to destroy our country. There are two things you need to know about Obama at Columbia University.
First, he was Pre Law and a Political Science major- just like me. I thought I knew everyone studying Political Science during my four years at Columbia. Not Obama. I never met him, never saw him, never even heard of him. Strange. Same major, same career path, and graduated on the same day– where was he?
Was he busy attending communist party meetings? No need to guess. In his autobiography he proudly admits attending Socialist Party meetings at Cooper Union in downtown Manhattan. He also admits publicly in his own book to not wanting to meet anyone at Columbia who wasn’t black, Hispanic, gay, or a Marxist professor. His words. So it’s possible he was so busy attending communist meetings and trying to avoid guys like me (white, straight, loved America) that our paths never crossed. Unlikely, but possible. But, it’s the second thing you really need to know about Obama at Columbia.
He says he graduated Class of ’83. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt. Well then Obama had to attend the same Political Science classes as me and I can tell you, almost to a man, my classmates in the Class of ’83 proudly called themselves Marxist, communist or socialist. They bragged of being radical like a badge of honor. They openly hated America- calling it racist. They hated capitalism- and vowed to bring “the system down.” In my class the typical Columbia political science student vowed to destroy capitalism, bankrupt business owners, and vaporize what they called “the white power structure.”
For the most part these were spoiled brat white students of privilege and power. They were children of wealth, given everything on a silver platter and all they felt was anger and guilt. Their goal was to destroy their own fathers. They talked about it all day long. So let me tell you a story. Back in 1981 I was sitting in a political science class. The president at the time was Ronald Reagan, a man reviled by the left just as viciously as any Republican is today.
Suddenly our lecture was interrupted by a door swinging open violently—whereupon a breathless fellow student raced into the room screaming, “The president has been shot! They’ve just assassinated President Reagan.” Ronald Reagan was my hero. The news hit me like a ton of bricks. I instantly felt sick to my stomach, and tears flowed down my cheeks. But it was the response of the rest of the class that I will remember for the rest of my life. They cheered. They clapped, they yelled, they high-fived, and whooped in sheer unadulterated joy. My fellow classmates, the ones I was naively trying so hard to befriend despite their radical leftist views, were HAPPY that my hero President Ronald Reagan was dead (or so they thought).
They were celebrating what they thought was the assassination of America’s president. Incidentally, if Obama actually went to Columbia, he’d almost certainly have to have been in that class leading the cheers. Feel like you need a shower yet? Lest you think I’m exaggerating, British leftists just celebrated and cheered upon hearing of the death of Margaret Thatcher only days ago. But wait, the most frightening and eye-opening is still to come.
You see political science students at Columbia were taught a detailed plan designed by two former Columbia professors named Cloward & Piven to bring down “the system,” destroy capitalism, and turn America into a socialist state. We discussed it in class, wrote about it, and debated it outside class. It was our #1 topic for four years. The plan was revolting, but brilliant. Cloward & Piven taught that America could only be destroyed from within. Only by overwhelming the system with debt, welfare, and entitlements could capitalism and the America economy be destroyed. So the plan was to make a majority of Americans dependent on welfare, food stamps, disability, unemployment, and entitlements of all kinds. Then, under the weight of the debt, the system would implode and the economy collapse, bankrupting business owners (i.e. conservative donors).
Americans would be brought to their knees, begging for big government to save them. Voila – you’d have a new system- socialism! Sound familiar? Lo and behold, one of my classmates was elected as President and it’s clear as a bell that he is using that plan to destroy America, capitalism, and the U.S. economy right in front of our eyes. It’s the exact plan hatched at Columbia University in our college days. Exact in every way. Under Obama, 660,000 Americans dropped off the job rolls…just last month. 90 million working-age, able-bodied Americans are no longer in the workforce. 90 million. The workforce participation rate is the lowest since 1979. For men it’s the lowest since 1948 (when record keeping began).
Almost 50 million Americans are on food stamps (20% of all eligible adults). 14 million are on disability. Millions more are on welfare, unemployment, housing allowances, aid to dependent children, or 100 other free government programs. Now, add in free healthcare plus 22 million government employees. Record-setting numbers of Americans are emptying their retirement accounts to survive. Student loan debt is a national disaster- with defaults up 36% from a year ago. 16.4 million Americans live in poverty…in the suburbs. Every day under Obama the private sector shrinks, while the government grows like a toxic malignant tumor. Obama promised to cut the deficit in half; instead he gave us five consecutive trillion dollar deficits. He promised to spend responsibly; instead he became the biggest spender in world history.
He called Bush’s $4 trillion in debt over 8 years reckless, then proceed to pile on $6 trillion in only 4 years. He swore to be on the side of small business, but he added 6,118 new rules, regulations and mandates in just the last 90 days. He claimed taxes are low, yet he just raised taxes to the same level as bankrupt EU countries like Greece, Spain, Italy and France. Our federal income taxes are now far higher than former Soviet Republics. Folks, this is Cloward & Piven. This is Karl Marx, who despised the middle class and vowed to wipe it out. This is Saul Alinsky (Obama’s mentor) who dedicated his book (Obama’s favorite book) to Lucifer, the devil. This is no accident, or the work of an economically inept liberal.
This is a purposeful plan to drown the nation in debt and hook a majority to government handouts, happening in front of our eyes. It’s crystal clear Obama’s plan was hatched in our college days, at Columbia, Class of ’83. While I never met Obama at Columbia, I can certainly put him at the scene of the crime. He either went to Columbia, or he didn’t. If he didn’t, he’s a fraud. If he did, he knew the Cloward & Piven plan like the back of his hand. He studied it and his goal- like almost all my classmates- was to use it to bring down the U.S. economy and destroy capitalism to create what they consider to be “equality, fairness and social justice.” Why would anyone want to purposely collapse the economy you might ask? Saul Alinsky taught the ends justify the means. A bankrupt America wipes out the middle class and small business.
That wipes out the majority of donors to conservatives causes- meaning Obama has no opposition. It creates “equality”- by putting everyone on equal footing (shared misery). It causes panic- and in panic, voters often make hasty decisions- like choosing big government to save them. The destruction and devastation we see happening right now is classic Cloward & Piven. It’s the plan we learned, studied, and discussed day and night at Columbia. This is no coincidence. This is the Marxist attack from within. This is a purposeful attempt to take down the economy, collapse the middle class, wipe out small business, bankrupt the wealthy (conservative donors), and addict the country to big government Nanny State socialism. And it’s working. Obama has been working on his plan for 30 years (our 30th Columbia class reunion is next month).
Now it is time for us to get to work. As I explain in my brand new book, “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide,” all success, all progress, all the miracles in this world are based on heart, on spirit, on will and on the power of being relentless. We are all going to need to muster the power of relentless to defeat Obama and his socialist game plan. We’re going to need to overcome the damage Obama has done to our economy…and our children’s future. It’s time for battle. Go create your own Booming Personal Economy. Go protect your family. Go take back this country. Your mission is to survive, thrive, and prosper despite Obama.

Senate Taking Away More Rights
The senate is at it again, trying to take away more of our rights. The senate voted to move on with attempts to ban certain firearms and more background checks. They already do a background check when you go to buy a firearm from a store, what more do they want. It is already a hassle to buy any type of firearm. Why can’t these old men realize that bad people will get a gun no matter what laws they pass. The laws only restrict law abiding citizens.
The senate is so ignorant to this fact.Why shouldn’t I be able to protect my family and home with an AR-15 with a 30 round magazine? What if they ban high capacity mags and you are in a shootout in your home to save your life, and you are cornered in a bedroom and empty the first 10 round mag, do you think the criminal is going to wait while you reload. Hell no. I am not saying I would need 30 rounds to end a thugs life, but there might be an instance, where the thug is an ak-47 and is able to hide behind something, so it takes more than 10 shots to eliminate the threat.
If the prez and the senate have their way, the law abiding citizen will end up dead instead of the thug. But, I guess it’s okay, because the thug didn’t get a proper education, or was an illegal alien, or didn’t grow up with a daddy. We civilized people are the ones who will be punished. With the new background check, Obama is going to build a registry of gun owners, and the next step will be to disarm the law abiding citizen. Obama doesn’t want anyone to be able to take care of themselves. He wants us dependent on government services. He wants us to wait for the police to come rescue us, but by that time we’ll be dead. Don’t let our government do this to us. Let your representative know that if he doesn’t take a stand against this, he will be voted out. Registration is what Hitler did to the Jews. Obama is fastly becoming the new Hitler.
If I Were President
If I were elected President right now in place of Obama I would certainly run things differently. I don’t think either side is really listening to the people. This budget deficits we are facing have to be solved. I would tell both the senate and congress that no one is getting paid another cent until they give me a signed bill that limits spending to essentials, cuts government waste, install a flat tax where everyone is contributing equally. Then when it comes to our immigration problem, I would identify the illegals, and get them registered. If they can’t support themselves without government assistance then they must leave. We will not allow immigration if the immigrants can’t support themselves.
Gun laws When it comes to gun laws I am a firm believer in the 2nd amendment, a strict reading, not what the supreme court has interpreted it to be. I think the current laws on the books are over stepping the 2nd amendment and are in violation of said amendment. They didn’t run background checks on everyone who owned a gun back then, and it shouldn’t be done now. Right now the criminals have more guns than the good guys.
I would sign an executive order for open carry without registration. I would require a basic gun responsibility training, which would be done on the honor system. I don’t believe in registration. Registration leads to people with power be able to hold something over the heads of the registered.
I would have it as you can have your guns, but when you act irresponsible, there are consequences. You commit a crime such as a felony, or you commit a crime with a gun, you lose those rights. Those who don’t believe in having guns don’t have to own any, it’s your right.
Abortions Abortions would only be permitted when it is medically necessary, no other reason. 2000 babies are aborted everyday by Family Planning. If you don’t want to get pregnant, use something. Don’t have kids that you have to kill. If you’re raped, then take the morning after pill. Don’t wait till you have to get an abortion.
Welfare People need help from time to time, but under my presidency, no one will live on welfare. You will work, or you don’t eat. If you have a need fro welfare, it will be a very temporary thing, and you will be required to work 4 hours a day at a government provided job, the other 4 hours you will be required to look for a regular job. At the end of 3 months you will be re-evaluated. If you provide proof that you searched for full-time work and the job that was provided for you gives you a good report, then you may continue on welfare for another 3 months. So on and so forth.
Now I understand that not everyone will be on board with this type of policy, but it will put the country back on the right track. I am not going to worry about offending people or people getting their feelings hurt by my policy. I will stand up for my beliefs, and run the country without fear of what people think.
This is what it would be like if I were President.
