Texas sparks international
row with election observers

The Hill [Washington DC], by Julian Pecquet

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/25/2012 5:32:38 PM

Texas authorities have threatened to arrest international election observers, prompting a furious response from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). “The threat of criminal sanctions against [international] observers is unacceptable,” Janez Lenarčič, the Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), said in a statement. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”(Snip) Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott further fueled the controversy on Tuesday when he sent a letter to the OSCE warning the organization that

Note to the socialist UN observers:

You boys aren't dealing with the Obama administration when you cross the state line. These are real Americans, and they don't have a fondness for the UN. Bottom line--don't mess with Texas.

Hey OSCE... The Republic of Texas does not recognize your alleged authority to monitor our elections, nor does our State Department have any authority to allow you to monitor our elections.

IOW, Bite Me!!!!

Texas is not some eighth century, third-world country, and we will not be treated as such.

They can play by our rules, or get to know Bubba in the county slammer for a few days. Their choice.

But if it's a fight they want, I've little doubt that Texans will be happy to oblige.

A little confusing. The UN entity, OSCE, itself says it does not observe when and where state laws forbid such activity. And a number of US states do forbid it.

But the AG in Texas did not speak nicely. What a ruffian! (I thought it was too blunt and would trigger a big fight. And it has.)

In response the OSCE predictably switched into UN WeaselImperial Mode and now implies it can do as they wish with protection from Washington and a treaty.

In reality the UN and Washington think states have no rights whatever. We see that in hundreds of incidents each year.

DOJ will probably send agents to protect the UN people from the Texas police.

Hillary invited them without consulting anyone in Texas. Of course, she did not send them out to Crockett County to observe voters, she sent them to Shiela Jackson Lee's district. True the Vote will have poll watchers there and you can bet that they will be prepared for the UN.

If you show up you will be invited to go back to where you came from. We don't need or want any of you in Texas. Better to get that straight before you head our way.

Two cowpokes were taking a badly needed rest and were leaning back on the corral fence when one said the the other...

Jake, you hear that the President's rasin' taxes?

Why you! Jake shouted as he knocked Slim to the ground.

Slim lay in the dirt rubbin' his jaw and said, "Jake, what'd you hit me fer? All I said was the President's raisin' taxes."

Jake reached down and helped Slim to his feet and was apologetically dusted Slim off and said, "Pardner, I sure am sorry. I though you said he was raised in Texas."

Thank you to all the well-wishers from beyond our borders! Don't worry, we will TCB (take care of business).

BTW our official motto is "Friendship" not "Don't Mess With Texas" which became prominent via an anti-litter campaign but has stuck as one of our most popular sayings.

My personal favorite is "Come And Take It!" from the Gonzales flag but to each his own.

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

Tens of thousands gathered for a weekend of Colorado cannabis-themed festivals and entertainment, from a marijuana industry expo called the Cannabis Cup at a trade center north of downtown, to 4/20-themed concerts at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater — acts include Slightly Stoopid and Snoop Dog — to a massive festival in the shadow of the state capitol where clouds of cannabis smoke are expected to waft at 4:20 p.m. MDT Sunday.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
