Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
Vile, Filthy: Rush Rips Houston Mayor's Sermon Grab - "Cannot Figure Out Why" Law Enforcement Not Pursuing Her
Thursday, October 23, 2014 2:04:00 PM
The quest by the mayor of Houston to subpoena the sermons of five Christian pastors regarding homosexuality is now being blasted as “vile” and “filthy” by Rush Limbaugh, America’s top-rated radio host. “I think what that mayor in Houston has done may be one of the most vile, filthy, blatant violations of the Constitution that I have seen,” Limbaugh said Wednesday on his national broadcast. “And I, for the life of me, cannot figure out why law authorities are not pursuing this. I cannot understand it.”
The Obama administration’s vigorous attacks on voter-ID laws since the president took office in 2009 already have been labeled a “con job” by several experts, and now a statement from Obama himself backs up that perspective. The administration’s Department of Justice has filed and argued multiple cases, claiming in court that voter-ID requirements – allowing people to vote only if they can show who they are through a driver’s license, an ID card or one of a number of other methods – unfairly take advantage of less “sophisticated” blacks and minorities. The DOJ is currently trying to overturn a Texas voter-ID law that took effect when the U.S. Supreme Court upheld it. The federal lawyers suing the state argue the law imposed burdens on minority voters as blacks and Hispanics disproportionately lacked one of the five forms of approved ID compared with white Texans
Civil Rights Official Chastises Houston Mayor - Requiring A Pastor To Turn Over An Email To His Neighbor Is Clearly Overboard
Thursday, October 23, 2014 1:43:00 PM
A member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is urging Houston Mayor Annise Parker, a lesbian whose transgender “bathroom bill” is under legal challenge, to back down from her subpoenas for copies of pastors “speeches.”
“These discovery requests threaten to have a chilling effect on religious and political speech that is protected by the First Amendment,” wrote Commissioner Peter Kirsanow in a letter to the mayor.
WND broke the story of the city’s response to a lawsuit by opponents of its Equal Rights Ordinance, passed in May, which allows “gender confused” people to use public facilities designated for the opposite sex. The opponents sued when their apparently successful petition drive to place the issue on the election ballot was tossed out.
Obama Brings In 1900 People From Another Ebola Nation - Virus Outreak Independent of Crisis In West Africa
Thursday, October 23, 2014 12:54:00 PM
Since an outbreak of Ebola hit the Democratic Republic of the Congo in July, the Obama administration has brought into the U.S. at least 1,900 refugees from the disease-stricken nation, WND has learned.
Required medical screening for refugees may not detect all diseases. The mandatory blood and urine tests for all refugees would not detect Ebola.
The strain of Ebola found in the Congo is slightly different from the virus that has been ravaging West Africa. Researchers have concluded the Congolese outbreak is not connected to the epidemic in West Africa.
Canada's PM Says Shooting Rampage Was Terrorism, Reprisal For Joining US Led Air Campaign
Thursday, October 23, 2014 12:03:00 PM
Two deadly attacks in three days against members of the military stunned Canadians and raised fears their country was being targeted for reprisals for joining the U.S.-led air campaign against an extremist Islamic group in Iraq and Syria.
"We will not be intimidated. Canada will never be intimidated," Prime Minister Stephen Harper vowed in a nationally televised address hours after a masked gunman killed a soldier standing guard at Ottawa's war memorial shortly before 10 a.m. on Wednesday. The suspect then stormed Parliament in a dramatic attack that was stopped cold when he was shot to death by the ceremonial sergeant-at-arms.
Harper called it the country's second terrorist attack in three days. A man Harper described as an "ISIL-inspired terrorist" on Monday ran over two soldiers in a parking lot in Quebec, killing one and injuring another before being shot to death by police. Like the suspect from Wednesday's shooting in Ottawa, he was a recent convert to Islam.

People who are likely to vote in the Nov. 4 midterm elections this year say they prefer Congress to be controlled by the Republicans instead of the Democrats, a new poll has found.

Forty-five percent of those surveyed said they'd prefer Congress to be led by the GOP, compared to 43 percent who prefer to have the Democrats at the helm. This is the first time in five weeks that the GOP came out ahead, according to The Journal.
