• The noise before defeat — The result of Obama’s apology on April 24, 2015 April 24, 2015

    The Wells Report Military Anaylist Colonel John Antal, US Army (Ret.) joined us yesterday and had a poignant segment about President Obama’s apology that killed an American and Italian hostage.  Here Jon-David’s conversation with Colonel Antal here

    and check out his thoughts below.

    Colonel John Antal Analysis: The noise before defeat — The result of Obama’s apology on April 24, 2015 will be a cessation or minimization of drone strikes against al Queda and ISIS during a time when our only strategy is drone strikes – and “drone strikes” is a tactic, not a strategy).  The enemy in the Crescent of fire (Afghanistan to Middle East to N Africa) will surge and win during the next 636 days that BHO is president. As Sun Tzu wrote in his art of war, “Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.” This is the noise before defeat.

  • Weatherford PD: Loose highway cash not free April 10, 2015

    The Weatherford Police Department’s non-emergency line is (817) 594-8733. The station is located at 801 Santa Fe Drive., 76086.

    WEATHERFORD – When something seems too good to be true, there is usually a catch.

    Weatherford police are warning those who found loose cash blowing along the side of Interstate 20 Friday afternoon that the catch could be winding up arrested if the money isn’t returned.

    A Brinks armored truck was heading to Abilene on I-20 in Weatherford around 2:55 p.m. when the truck’s passenger door came open and a “substantial amount of cash” fell out of door in plastic bag, police said in a statement. The money was soon strewn along the roadway between miles markers 410 and 403.

    This is the part where police would like us to remind you not to stop along the highway and search for cash. Police tell News 8 most of the money has already been picked up by citizens, plus it is extremely dangerous to have pedestrians near highway traffic.

    Further, police are asking any citizen who picked up some of the money to return it to them or to Brinks.  Read more here.

  • Sen. Enzi: Washington must live within its means-Republicans proposing a plan to balance budget in 10 years April 9, 2015

    Op-ed by Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is chairman of the Senate Budget Committee.  From USA Today 03/25/15

    Sen. Mike Enzi

    Last week, Congress began the monumental task of confronting our nation’s chronic overspending and exploding debt, which threaten each and every American. Make no mistake, our fiscal outlook is grim and has been ignored for far too long. But we have a profound moral responsibility to help taxpayers see the true picture of our country’s finances.

    Republicans are proposing a responsible plan that balances the budget in 10 years with no new tax hikes, protects our most vulnerable citizens, strengthens our national defense, and improves economic growth and opportunity for hardworking families.

    While this balanced budget is not perfect, it represents a significant first step in changing how we do business in order to safeguard the future for our children and grandchildren.

    Runaway spending over the past six years has created a dangerously growing debt, because of deeply ingrained habits of spending now and paying later.

    Federal revenues have hit record highs. Yet, we are on track to overspend by nearly $1 trillion a year. To put that into perspective, that is 1,000 billion dollars. And the more we overspend, the more debt we owe, and the more we add to the tab for future generations.  Continue reading here.

    State Religious Freedom Restoration Acts (RFRAs): What are they and why are they needed?

    By Travis Weber

    What is a RFRA?

    Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) refers to a state law that mirrors the federal statute by the same name and which prohibits the government from burdening religious exercise unless it meets a high level of legal scrutiny. Then-U.S. Representative Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and then-State Senator Barack Obama are just a few examples of political leaders who have voted for a RFRA at the state or federal level.

    Where did the federal RFRA come from?

    Many correctly saw the Supreme Courts 1990 decision in Employment Division v. Smith[1] as an erosion of religious liberty rights and threat to our freedom to live out our personal beliefs. In response to Smith, a coalition of groups from across the religious, political, and legal spectrum–from the Southern Baptists to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)–came together to urge Congress to pass a law restoring strong protections for free exercise claims. The 1993 federal RFRA was sponsored by Senators Schumer and Kennedy, was passed unanimously by the House and 97-3 by the Senate, and signed by President Bill Clinton.

    So why are state RFRAs needed today?

    In 1997 the Supreme Court ruled in City of Boerne v. Flores[2] that the federal RFRA did not apply to state and local government action. Since then, state RFRAshave been needed to protect against undue state and local government interference in religious exercise. Twenty states have responded as of this writing,[3] and another 11 states have similar protections under state court precedent. RFRAs are needed in the remaining states to protect people whose sincere beliefs are in danger of being unnecessarily burdened by the government.

    What do RFRAs actually do?

    They give courts a tried-and-true balancing test for weighing a persons sincerely held religious beliefs against legitimate state interests; RFRAs do not dictate outcomes.

    The language can vary from state to state, depending on the laws already in place. All RFRAs protect people with sincerely-held religious beliefs from over-intrusive government regulation burdening their religious practice, while winnowing out those using religion as a pretext to escape application of general laws.  Read the entire article here.
