Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/17/2014 5:20:57 AM

Some of Hollywood’s wealthiest liberals are forking over big bucks for Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Texas, according to campaign finance reports recently filed by the campaign. Among those who have donated directly to Davis: singer Barbara Streisand ($1,000) and musician James Taylor ($15,000). A number of other celebs have given money to the Texas Victory Committee, a joint effort of the Davis campaign and the group Battleground Texas. Donors include actress Jennifer Garner ($25,000); director Steven Spielberg ($12,500); DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg ($12,500); actor Matt Damon ($5,000); director Tom Ford ($5,000); director Judd Apatow ($1,000); actress Carrie Fisher ($1,000); actor Tom Hanks

It´s breathtaking to see Hollywood gazillionaires dig so deeply into their personal fortunes to help out.

In return, they each get one private night with Wendy!

The left is extremley serious about makig Texas a blue state. I have to iagine iftey did they would bring drilling to a compete halt because it enriches the wrong people in their eyes.

Too many companies and businesses have moved to Texas and I have to imagine they would donate to the GOP contender to protect their investment.But it´s really sick and insane that person´s claim to fame is being rabidly pro abortion.

Her crushing defeat will be a resume enhancement in the Democrat Party. The fact that she is pro death when it comes to babies is all important to Democrats. The Democrat Party has be come the enemy within. The US Senate is putting together a bill where it will be legal to practice the Dr. Gosnell treatment, a lethal shot to the heart of an unborn. Pure evil is what the Democrat Party has become and Wendy Davis is just a pretty face put on that evil.

I keep reminding non-Texans who are interested in this race that Wendy Davis lost ALL the border districts in the Democrat primary. Those districts are heavily Hispanic and the Hispanics do not like Wendy Davis. Keep that in mind when it becomes a concern that Texas might turn blue anytime soon.

Now....if this makes you angry.......do something about it. DO NOT GO SEE THEIR MOVIES and make sure, at least on your end, that they don´t receive one penny from you. That´s what we do and many like us who are angry as heck and it´s working. Why not join us by putting them out of business huh? These very persons are helping Obama destroy our freedoms and our country. It´s good to get angry, do something POSITIVE about it by not giving these people your money.

Knowing that a bunch of elitist Hollyweird lie-berals are funding her election may very well help Abbot to a record breaking win.

My one great fear was that Davis was going to implode too soon and thus not be able to suck up enough money that would otherwise go to candidates that had a chance of winning.

Fortunately, she is still drawing money away.

Within the span of a few months in 1970, the short-lived film genre known as the "concert/documentary movie" reached its apogee with three releases that each marked a turning point in artistic evolution. "Let It Be" was the final major appearance of the Beatles; "Woodstock," the first big blockbuster concert movie—boasting one classic rock band after another—amounted to the zenith of the form, still yet to be surpassed. But "Elvis: That´s the Way It Is" was something else entirely: It captured the King of Rock ´n´ Roll at the very moment he was reclaiming his throne and beginning a new

A lawyer for Gov. Rick Perry said Friday he will challenge felony charges that the governor overstepped his authority when he said he would veto state funding for Travis County prosecutors if District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg would not resign her post. David Botsford, an attorney for Perry, informed Visiting Judge Bert Richardson he plans to file a writ of habeas corpus challenging the constitutionality of the laws underlying the two-count indictment against Perry. “It will speak for itself,” Botsford told reporters. He said his challenge would be based on the governor’s power to veto and his First Amendment rights. Grand jurors indicted Perry

It’s the kind of story that gets shared around the smoke pit at military bases for years. Robert Work, the deputy secretary of defense, shared a “true story” with U.S. troops while visiting Guam yesterday and it showed the spirit and ingenuity that enlisted personnel bring to the job. A retired Marine colonel, Work said that while Marines were on patrol in Afghanistan, they saw Afghan men apparently hiding improvising explosive devices. The Marines rules of engagement, however, wouldn’t allow them to attack. They had to figure out if there actually was a threat first, Work said. The Marines approached, and the

Today, Governor Perry gave a speech at the Heritage Foundation in Washington D.C. detailing the dangers inherent in Barack Obama’s tacit open borders immigration policy.

The headline was brutal. “Bam’s Golf War: Prez tees off as Foley’s parents grieve,” read the cover of Thursday’s New York Daily News.

Such a great time that he returned to the Farm Neck Golf Club—sorry, membership is full—the next day. Technically, Obama’s vacation began on August 9. It is scheduled to end on Sunday, August 24.

Does the president think the world is a TV show? One of the things you learn watching television as a kid is that the hero wins. No matter how dire things look, the star is going to be okay. MacGyver always defuses the bomb with some saltwater taffy before the timer reaches zero. There was no way Fonzie was going to mess up his water-ski jump and get devoured by sharks.

On Tuesday, August 19, an American citizen, James Foley, was savagely killed. The group of jihadists known as ISIL had previously killed and brutalized tens of thousands of non-Americans. But they killed Foley because he was an American. They titled the grotesque video of this particular act of barbarism “A message to America.” On Wednesday, the president of the United States of America spoke. It would have been fitting if he had delivered a reply from America. It would have been proper if his reply to the savages who killed James Foley had been that they would be hearing from

A grand jury has convened to determine what charges, if any, will be brought against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown earlier this month. Over at The New Republic, Yishai Schwartz argues that a conviction against Wilson is impossible because of Missouri´s self defense laws: In other states, claims of self-defense need to be proven as more likely than not, or in legal speak, to a “preponderance of the evidence.” It’s still the state’s obligation to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that the defendant actually killed the victim. But once that’s established, the prosecution doesn’t

Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that his Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation into the brutal execution by Islamic State militants of American journalist James Foley, in the latest move by the administration to use the criminal justice system to pursue terrorists. The announcement comes as the administration steps up its airstrike campaign against the same militant organization -- and mulls additional American boots on the ground in Iraq. Holder, during remarks in Washington, confirmed the "open criminal investigation" into Foley´s beheading, which was recorded and posted online this week.
