Cagle: If You Want a Political Witch Hunt, Look at Texas

All of the noise surrounding Governor Rick Perry attempting to legitimize his recent indictment is completely unjust and a textbook example of a political witch-hunt. Perry has been accused of “abuse of his office and coercing a public official” when in actuality, he was using his power to veto funding to Rosemary Lehmberg, a convicted drunk driver who also happened to be a Travis County District Attorney. Governor Perry was simply doing the right thing by calling on her to resign.

None of Perry’s actions were outside of the constitutional authority given to a Texas Governor. Even liberal media outlets such as MSNBC and The New York Times have cited the absurd accusations in articles of their own titled “The weak case against Rick Perry” and “The Strange Case Against Rick Perry.” This case, returned by the grand jury on Friday, is a complete mockery and a clean-cut case of dirty politics. Remember, this is the same D.A. office that brought trumped-up charges against former House Majority Leader Tom Delay and the case was later thrown out by a higher court.

Governor Perry has responded to the indictment stating, “I stood up for the rule of law in the state of Texas, and if I had to do it again, I would make exactly the same decision.” By personally attacking Perry with the “indictment” headline, the news story itself did its job by getting it into people’s heads that he was charged with a crime – no matter how unfounded and ludicrous the charges may be. Texas’ Senator Ted Cruz had this to say about the indictment, “Unfortunately, there has been a sad history of the Travis County District Attorney’s Office engaging in politically-motivated prosecutions, and this latest indictment of the governor is extremely questionable.”

Breitbart: Conservatives Unite In Iowa

Last Saturday, I was honored to have my organization Citizens United cosponsor a fantastic event with Bob Vander Plaats and the Family Leader in Ames, Iowa on the campus of Iowa State University. The Family Leadership Summit is an annual event which consistently draws large crowds of conservative activists and the top names in the conservative movement.

Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Rick Perry, Governor Bobby Jindal, Governor Mike Huckabee, Senator Rick Santorum and others had a chance to speak to a 1,000-plus crowd and take the opportunity to discuss the principles and values that make our beliefs as conservatives the only way to fix what’s broken in America today and restore the American Dream.

Each of the speeches had their own theme and message to conference attendees. Senator Cruz brought the crowd to their feet on numerous occasions taking shots at Obama and touting the message that we must “stand unambiguously for the commonsense conservative principles shared by the vast majority of Americans.” It is abundantly clear, particularly in the past few months, that Obama does not share the same core principles as the majority of Americans, and his favorability numbers prove it. Cruz closed his rip-roaring speech by announcing, “We need to stand for life, we need to stand for marriage, we need to abolish the IRS, we need to repeal Obamacare, and we need to repeal Common Core.”

Cagle: Jameson's Last Ride

“Jameson, were you chasing deer again? Jameson, did you eat the entire thing? Jameson, stop licking the baby. Jameson, wanna go for a ride?”

Those were some of the most common things that would come out of our mouths when talking to our best friend, Jameson. Jameson made us feel like the luckiest family in the world, until last week, just three months shy of her 14th birthday. Jameson was our 100 pound black Labrador Retriever, who always thought she was a lap dog.

Jameson was our first. Luckily, we found her at a local pet store about four months before the birth of our first daughter.

Breitbart: Liberals Not Interested in Benghazi Answers

Why are the Democrats trying to derail Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi investigation? It seems to me if they chose to seriously participate in the Select Committee probe, Democrats would send a clear signal to the American people that they care about our national security. I guess not!

On September 11, 2012, Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi and killed four Americans: U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. In addition to the tragic loss of these four men, ten others were injured in these attacks. The day after these attacks took place, President Obama went to a fundraiser in Las Vegas for his 2012 campaign, and ever since then, Democrats and the mainstream media have done everything in their power to downplay the significance of these events and the importance of investigating them.

President Obama repeatedly refused to call the Benghazi attack what it was – a terrorist attack – despite later claiming that he had. This lie was so obvious that even the Washington Post took notice: “But the president’s claim that he said 'act of terrorism' is taking revisionist history too far, given that he repeatedly refused to commit to that phrase when asked directly by reporters in the weeks after the attack. He appears to have gone out of his way to avoid saying it was a terrorist attack, so he has little standing to make that claim now.”

Cagle.com: Over $7,000,000,000,000 And Counting

Recently, yet another horrible precedent has been set by the Obama Administration. The national debt of the federal government has skyrocketed to levels unseen by any administration to-date. President Obama has raised our national debt by over 7 trillion dollars to a grand total of over $17.5 trillion. This is not only a completely unimaginable amount of money, but an amount that future generations will have to deal with.

A similarly daunting fact is one that directly affects the very people President Obama has promised time and time again to help the most – the middle class. According to an article by CNS news, “The $7,060,259,674,497.51 in new debt that the federal government has taken on during Obama’s presidency equals $61,341.82 per household. The median household income in the United States in 2012 (the latest year estimated) was $51,017. Thus, President Obama has increased the federal debt by more than the typical household’s annual income.”

Dependence on government is key when it comes to breaking down the liberal agenda. Therefore, it would seem to make sense that such a progressive president would have the highest national debt growth in history. But this kind of reckless, irresponsible spending should cause concern – even among the most liberal democrats. Obama has taken his blank check and irresponsibly spent and spent without even giving a second thought to our future generations – who are going to have to somehow begin to clean up this giant fiscal mess.

Breitbart: Conservative Victory on the Southern Border Crisis

Unlike President Obama, this week House conservatives began the process of taking action to solve the crisis at our nation’s Southern border.

The latest legislation passed Friday gives emergency funds to governors for them to be able to deploy National Guard units to the border and calls for significantly less spending than President Obama’s nearly $4 billion proposal. In addition to being more fiscally responsible, it actually allows for the necessary action to be taken in order to prevent this crisis from worsening.

More importantly the House passed legislation that will rein in President Obama’s power to shield illegal immigrants from being deported, an important step in the process of beginning to clear up the problem he has created. I want to personally thank three Members of Congress -- Steve King, Marsha Blackburn, and Matt Salmon -- for their hard work ensuring conservative principles were honored and the hard choices were made to get this legislation where it needs to be policy-wise.

Breitbart: Citizens United: America's Border Crisis Is A Result Of Our Leadership Crisis

On Tuesday, Citizens United launched a video calling on President Barack Obama to deploy the National Guard to the southern U.S. border.

“President Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi are in complete denial when it comes to the illegal immigration crisis on the southern border,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “The National Guard must be deployed to work with the U.S. Border Patrol to help secure the border immediately. America is a nation of laws, and existing immigration laws need to be enforced if America is to remain a sovereign nation.”

Cagle.com: Standing With Israel

Two prime examples of how American influence has deteriorated under President Obama include what we have seen over the last few weeks in the Middle East and the all-out war between Israel and Hamas. Our foreign policy is in shambles because President Obama would rather let others take the lead when it is American leadership that is essential to finding solutions to an ever more dangerous world. The Israeli government, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, looks like it has lost faith in the Obama Administration, just like a majority of Americans have. Can you blame them?

Let’s just briefly look at what President Obama and both his Secretaries of State (Hillary Clinton and John Kerry) have achieved in regards to the damage done to our relationship with one of our most important allies in the Middle East – Israel. Three years ago, President Obama suggested that Israel should go back to its 1967 borders. A statement which brought a quick rebuke from Netanyahu saying Obama’s statement was “indefensible.” A member of the Israeli Knesset even said, “Israel will not pay [Obama's] private tuition as he tries to understand the essence of the conflict.”

That brings us to where we are today. Israel is under constant threat from Hamas due to their ability to launch rockets indiscriminately into Israel. These rockets can hit a majority of the citizenry in Israel and when a rocket is launched, Israelis only have seconds to seek shelter. Thanks to the much vaunted “Iron Dome” these rockets are often intercepted before they are able to do physical harm…but some get by. The psychological harm on the people of Israel is unknown. Could you imagine being under constant threat from rocket fire? Would Americans sit idly by if a foreign terrorist organization kept on firing rockets into the country? The answer to both questions is a resounding NO.

Breitbart: When A Commander-in-Chief Stops Caring

Of late, the Obama Administration and hypocrisy have become synonymous. For a president who loves to pretend his policies and ideas are always in favor of middle-class workers, Obama can’t seem to help himself when it comes to attending fundraising events put on by wealthy liberal elites. Yes, all presidents raise money for their political party, but Obama has taken fundraising to a different level—appearances be damned.

It is amusing that the same Super PACs Democrats are trying to make unconstitutional are the very thing that Obama is constantly spending his time focusing on helping. Similarly, this Administration has absolutely zero interest in remaining transparent throughout these numerous fundraising events. For President Obama to claim, “This is the most transparent administration in history,” is simply hyperbole. President Obama continues to make these $25,000 per-plate fundraisers closed-off to the press. In claiming transparency in this Administration, the President is not only being dishonest but purposely deceitful.

Obama and the Democrats’ continuous attacks against Citizens United’s Supreme Court free speech victory in Citizens United v. FEC has recently, once again, been placed front and center. Senate Democrat leaders are currently imposing a full-court press trying to pass a constitutional amendment to upend the Citizens United decision and the First Amendment rights it reasserted (this attempt, like many others before it, will go down in flames).
