The Guardian, the ultra-left wing communist newspaper in London and the mouth piece for the Labor Party and Edward Snowden, has blasted Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Read it here Their headline screams that Perry attacked Texas Sen. Wendy Davis’ pregnancy.
Davis, if you are Rip Van Winkle and haven’t heard, led a 13-hour filibuster and successfully killed pro-life legislation in the past special session of the Texas Legislature. Don’t worry! Gov. Perry immediately called another special session to consider just one thing: Senate Bill 5 which some say will close most abortion mills in Texas. There is little chance that anyone could filibuster the bill when the special session opens on Monday, July 1.
Perry made the statement to a pro-life group in Dallas. Here it is:
“No life is trivial in God’s eyes. The fact is — who are we to say that children born into the worst of circumstances can’t live successful lives?” Perry asked at the National Right to Life convention in Dallas.
“In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances,” he continued. “She was the daughter of as single woman; she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.”
Everything that that media darling Wendy Davis has said has been canonized and everything anyone says against her is attacked and drowned out. It’s just as the Inkdemon predicted. The media and the abortion issue has made a star out of “St. Wendy”. Right now, she is Joan of Arc, the Mother Mary, and Madam Mao all rolled up into one.
But have you really looked at this hag? She has big warts all over her face. She could be the before of any before-and-after plastic surgery commercial! (EYES ROLL) The Inkdemon is not suggesting she have surgery. In fact, the Inkdemon wants Davis to remain looking like the hag that she is.
The Inkdemon also has criticism for the tea party in Texas over this issue. The states roads are falling apart. High-speed commuter rail is needed desperately. Above all, Texas is running out of water. The tea party’s agenda has so sapped world-wide attention that none of these vital issues were seriously addressed. Don’t worry, when the state runs out of water, everyone will wake up. … or will they?

WASHINGTON — As Republicans regroup from their drubbing on Election Day, Texas’ Sen.-elect Ted Cruz is offering a prescription to rebuild: The party must be less timid toward Democrats, less hostile toward Hispanics, and more focused on upward mobility than on protecting big business.
“It’s easy to be demoralized, to look at these elections and throw up your hands in despair,” he told conservative activists at a fundraising dinner Thursday, but history teaches that “things can change very, very quickly.”
Republican hand-wringing and finger-pointing have been in full swing over the president’s victory and Democratic gains in the Senate. Cruz, a 41-year-old who takes office in six weeks, is already a heavy hitter among conservatives.
Editor’s note — This story from Belief Net seems to imply that many evangelical Christians stayed at home rather than vote for a Mormon.

In 2000, Green Party candidate Ralph Nader catapulted George W. Bush into the Oval Office by siphoning off 97,488 Florida votes that otherwise would have gone to Al Gore. As a result, Bush — heavily supported by evangelical Christians – won Florida and the Presidency by the slimmest of margins – 537 votes.
Back in 1992, H. Ross Perot gave the White House to Bill Clinton, drawing away enough discontented conservatives and Christians that George H.W. Bush lost and Clinton became President with only 43 percent of the popular vote. Almost a century before, Teddy Roosevelt’s Bull Moose Party candidacy is credited with electing Woodrow Wilson.
WASHINGTON — The political action committee founded by Sen. Jim DeMint, a darling of the Tea Party movement, was three-for-nine in picking conservative Senate candidates this year — after spending more than $8.7 million.
Of the nine Republican Senate candidates that received money from the Senate Conservatives Fund, only Ted Cruz of Texas, Jeff Flake of Arizona, and Deb Fischer of Nebraska won election on Tuesday.
Those three and the six losing candidates benefited from some of the $16.5 million raised by the fund and an affiliated super PAC over the 2011-2012 election cycle, said Matt Hoskins, the fund’s executive director.
Despite the fund’s less-than-stellar record, DeMint and Hoskins are urging supporters to resist calls for moderation.
Editor’s Note: Conservative pundit looking across the landscape sees little change that Romney or Santorum can beat Obama and win the White House.
By TIM MAK | 3/2/12 8:33 AM EST
Columnist George Will says the 2012 presidential race looks like it might be a lost cause for Republicans and believes that the primary goal of conservatives should be to retain control of the House and win the Senate so Congress can restrain President Barack Obama while the GOP grooms its talent for 2016.
“Romney and Rick Santorum… are conservatives, although of strikingly different stripes. Neither, however, seems likely to be elected… If either is nominated, conservatives should vote for him,” Will writes in his upcoming Sunday column, obtained in advance by POLITICO Playbook by Mike Allen.
However, Will argues, that control of both house of Congress is more attainable and more important.

Shortly after their crushing victory in the 2010, some jubilant Republicans were sure that President Barak Hussein Obama’s days in the White House were numbered.
His approval numbers were down and unemployment was close to 9 percent. Republicans only needed to find a suitable opponent in 2012 and win back the White House.
Many things have changed since 2010.
Who would have thought that the Republicans would have devoured themselves in early 2012? Mitt Romney is the current frontrunner. He has yet to get a clear majority of the votes in any of the three primaries where GOP voters vote directly.
Meanwhile Obama has a billion dollar campaign war chest and has solidified his base on the left. He is concentrating now on the independents (Indies). The Indies will be the crucial voting bloc in the 2012 election. What will Obama give them?
With war clouds gathering across the Middle East, Obama has removed all U.S. troops from Iraq. He is pulling out of Afghanistan. He has told Israel in no uncertain terms that he will not support an attack on Iran. The Iranians are indeed building a nuclear weapon and the means to deliver it.
Appeasement (peace) is the big carrot that Obama will dangle before the Indies for their votes. Lyndon Johnson used it to defeat Barry Goldwater in 1964.
By November the unemployment rate will be manipulated below 8 percent. Mr. O will give the economy a happy face and say he kept his promise to bring the unemployment rate below 8 percent. His big government advisors will put out the word that the crucial economic indicator, growth in Gross Domestic Product, will be 1.1 percent in 2013. No one remembers that the GDP growth was once 4.24 percent.
The Main Stream Media including the Fox News Channel will trumpet the “Obama Economic Recovery”. Then the media will play Obama’s biggest trump card. They will “go Alinsky” and demonize the right and the Tea Party. They will try to connect the Tea Party with every “evil and hated” right-wing group in existence.
They will call the 2010 House of Representatives the Do Nothing Congress which put a drag on Obama’s economic recovery plans. Campaigning against Congress worked for the Democrats in 2006 and as far back as 1948.
The media, the Democratic National Committee, and Obama will demonize the rich. Of course, later when the tax bill comes in, Obama’s supporters will find out that they are all “rich”.
The Ron Paul-ites will remember how they and their candidate were the victims of Alinsky tactics by their fellow Republicans. They will either find a third party candidate or fold their arms and stay home.
Will liberal politics trump religion? Some staunch right wing Evangelical Christians will refuse to vote for Mitt Romney if he is nominated. He is a cultist to them. Other Evangelicals will simply say that Jesus whispered in their ear to stay home or vote for Mr. O. Many Indies won’t vote for Romney because the media will point out his ties to the Evangelicals. It will be a circular firing squad.
Conservative members of the public sector unions will close ranks with their left-wing co-workers and vote for Obama.
Will it be another “Kumbaya moment” and 2008 all over again? The InkDemon fears that it will be.
Great video. Please watch it to the end.
Two Democrats are stuck on an escalator …
What would Ronald Reagan or any conservative do? He would simply walk off.
No one knows really how many Czars the Obama Regime has brought into the White House. We know some of them, and they are some very unsavory characters. Take for instant, Van Jones, who had communist leanings and was a wacked-out 9/11 Truther. That got him fired.
The InkDemon has named at least four of POTUS’ czars. Glenn Beck has named all of the Obama Regime’s czars here.
By all accounts, Valarie Jarret may have been the person that brought Czar Van Jones into the Obama’s regime’s Czar network.
Mark Lloyd, FCC Media Diversity Czar
Mark Lloyd is not on Beck’s list, but Michelle Malkin’s blog lists him as the Media Diversity Czar.
Todd Stern, Climate Czar
According to Beck’s web site:
• Served in the Clinton White House from 1993 to 1999; Was Head of the Initiative on Global Climate Change (1997 to 1999) and Adviser to the Secretary of the Treasury (1999 to 2001)
• As a top aide to President Clinton, helped negotiate the Kyoto and Buenos Aires climate pacts, both of which fell apart partially because of a lack of U.S. support during Bush administration.
• After Bush was elected to office, went to the Wilmer Hale law firm, where he is a partner in the regulatory and government affairs division.
• Was most recently a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, where he focused on climate change and environmental issues.
• Has written extensively on climate change, and has called on the American government and the international community to take a series of steps to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
• Supports a national cap-and-trade system that would limit carbon emissions and reduce U.S. dependency on foreign oil
According to Beck’s web site, Alan Bersin:
• Talking about border security shortly before he was named Clinton border czar in 1995, said he wanted to focus on suspected smugglers of both drugs and people and was not interested in prosecuting “economic migrants.”
• Often tied to the 1994 border policy called “Operation Gatekeeper.” The policy shifted the U.S. focus from the arresting of immigrants who actually crossed the border to an increased border presence designed to stop border crossing in the first place. When Bersin left the position in 1998, border arrests were on pace for an 18-year low of just more than 200,000. Latino groups complained that Operation Gatekeeper was immoral, saying the program monitored the border near San Diego but simply forced illegal immigrants to other, more dangerous areas.
• Has given more than $50,000 to political campaigns since 1999, almost all of it to Democrats.
Jeffrey Crowley, AIDS Czar
According to Beck’s web site, Crowley:
• Coordinates HIV/AIDS policy domestically and internationally.
• Senior Research Scholar at Georgetown University’s Health Policy Institute and a Senior Scholar at the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, Georgetown University Law Center.
• Was Deputy Executive Director for Programs at the National Association of People with AIDS
• Has Master of Public Health from the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health
Richard Holbrooke is the Afghan Czar
Glenn Beck’s web site says:
• Will work with CENTCOM head Gen. David Petraeus to integrate U.S. civilian and military efforts in the region.
• 45 years of experience have made him a fixture of the Democrats’ foreign policy establishment.
• Was U.S. ambassador to U.N., 1999-2001
• Brokered the 1995 Dayton Peace Accords in Bosnia
• Also served as Assistant secretary of state, East Asia and the Pacific (1976 to 1980); worked in foreign service (1962 to 1976)
• From 1972 through 1976, was the editor of Foreign Policy magazine.
According to Beck’s web site:
Jones said, “I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.” In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. “I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th,” he said. “By August, I was a communist.” In 1994, the young activists formed a socialist collective, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia. They protested police brutality and got arrested for crashing through police barricades. In 1996, Jones decided to launch his own operation, which he named the Ella Baker Center after an unsung hero of the civil-rights movement.”
According to Glenn Beck’s web site:
“Some conservative media outlets have called attention to a book Holdren co-authored in 1977 titled Ecoscience: Population, Resources, and Environment. The book reportedly includes this statement: “population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution.” Holdren’s office says he “does not now and never has been an advocate of compulsory abortions or other repressive measures to limit fertility.”
According to Beck, Carrion:
- Has undergraduate degree in world religions from Kings College; became an associate pastor at a Bronx church; earned his master’s degree in urban planning from Hunter College
- Was Bronx Borough President (2001-2009); President of the National Association of Latino Elected Officials (since 2007); City Council member (1998 to 2000)
- Many reporters say he has higher ambitions and will probably run for New York City mayor in the next ten years.
- Was an active campaigner for Obama, travelling across the country to speak on his behalf. He focused particularly on states with large Hispanic populations.
- The NY Daily News reported numerous developers made tens of thousands of dollars in campaign donations to Carrión around the same time he was considering approving their projects in the Bronx.
According to Beck’s web site, Kundra:
• Basically in charge of overseeing other federal agency CIOs and for setting technology policy across the government.
• Head of a federal technology budget that amounts to $71 billion annually
• Operation is housed in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and will likely have authority to question how money in departmental technology budgets is used
• Formerly head of the District of Columbia’s technology operations
• Shortly after he joined the OMB, federal authorities raided his old District government office. They arrested two technology office managers and a subcontractor, charging them with a bribery scheme that allegedly defrauded the city out of at least $500,000. Kundra was not a suspect in the case, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.
• Has a masters from Maryland in information technology.
• Experience: Washington, D.C. Chief Technology Officer (2007 to 2009); State of Virginia’s Assistant Secretary of Commerce and Trade (2006 to 2007); CEO of computer security firm Creostar.
