It is a crime to remain silent in the face of evil, it is said. Thus, I am speaking up and urging other good men and women to raise their resonant voices while they can before they are brutally silenced by the ever-creeping Islamofascism.

Hundreds of new Texas laws go into effect Thursday

By Anna M. Tinsley This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Come Thursday, there will be some new laws in town. No longer will most Texans have to worry about leaving guns in their cars while at work. Drivers won't have to worry about slowing down on some highways at sundown. Teens caught "sexting" face misdemeanor charges - and attending state-sponsored classes about the dangers of sending sexually explicit messages and texts with their parents. And most women seeking abortions will first have to undergo a sonogram and learn the results. {C} Those new laws - along with the new state budget, which includes billions of dollars in cuts - are among the hundreds of new laws that go into effect Thursday. State lawmakers earlier this year passed more than 1,400 new laws, nearly half of which go into effect Sept. 1, the beginning of the new fiscal year. "These laws are a lot of small things that might add up to be something big," said Brandon Rottinghaus, assistant political science professor at the University of Houston.

Is Spencer always careless?

Mr. Spencer is so “absolutely reliable and correct” that he “debunks” my published article titled, “governor perry’s Islam curriculum.” As a matter of fact, I never published a piece with that title. I assume, however, he was referring to the article I published, “Governor Perry’s Islam Connection.” I only wish that Mr. Spencer would get his facts straight in his attempt at debunking what I have written, although he starts out by getting the title of the article wrong and goes on to cut and paste allegations that I have found to be less than solid facts. I bear no animosity or grudge toward Mr. Spencer and I admire his work in combating Islamic fascism. I only wish that he would spend his talents and valuable time in debunking Islamic falsehood and not questioning my reporting without supplying solid evidence.

All eyes turn to Rick Perry

Posted by Neil Stevens (Profile) Friday, September 2nd at 6:30PM EDT Attacks on Rick Perry, new Presidential candidate and sudden poll leader, have begun to mount. He will soon take the stage in a debate against the other candidates. His opponents in both parties are determined to leave a mark on him. Let’s take a look at where he’s at as the pressure grows. As I often did in 2010, and will do often in this cycle, I turn to Real Clear Politics for a list of recent polls. But I’m not interested in the top line numbers this time. Those have and continue to fluctuate. I’m interested in opinions of Rick Perry, to see whether his current numbers are likely to have staying power. Quinnipiac polled 1185 Republicans (MoE 2.9), targeting both landlines and mobile phones. Rick Perry among Republicans came out with 44% having a favorable view of him, to 5% unfavorable. Contrast with Mitt Romney, who appears better known, but with triple the unfavorables at 57/14. Nobody else matches Perry. Not Michele Bachmann at 50/14, not Sarah Palin at 63/25.

Texas' Rick Perry beats Obama for first time in poll

Category: Amil Blogs

McClatchy Newspapers (Maria Recio) Posted: 09/02/2011 2:40 PM For the first time, Texas Gov. Rick Perry leads President Barack Obama in a national poll, by 44 to 41 percent, while his GOP rivals trail in head-to-head match-ups against the president. The new Rasmussen poll signals a breakthrough for Perry, who trailed Obama by 3 percentage points in last week's Rasmussen poll. The latest survey of 1,000 likely voters, released Thursday, was conducted Aug. 23-30 and has an error margin of 3 percentage points. Since his late entry into the race Aug. 13, Perry has surged to the top of six major polls, displacing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the former front-runner. Perry heads to South Carolina on Labor Day for a forum with other major GOP candidates organized by Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C. On Wednesday, Perry will participate in his first debate with his Republican rivals at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., followed by another debate Sept. 12 in Tampa. Perry's camp downplayed the new poll, with political adviser David Carney telling McClatchy via email, "Polls at this point are neither predictive nor enlightening, but they kill lots of trees and keep many people employed." In fact, a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday had Obama still ahead of Perry at 45-42 percent, and Romney tied with Obama at 45 percent.

By Published August 31, 2011 FoxNews.com No religion can claim superiority over safety and security. On Tuesday, Rye Playland, an amusement park near New York City temporarily shut down after an altercation erupted with a Muslim group over the park's headgear policy. Muslim women in a tour group at Playland were reportedly denied access to several rides because they were wearing hijabs – their traditional headscarves, according to FoxNews.com. {C} The park's deputy commissioner said, "Our headgear policy is designed to protect the safety of patrons and safety is our first concern...This policy was repeatedly articulated to the tour operator, but unfortunately the message did not reach some of the members of his group."

Governor Perry’s Islam Connection

Category: Our Archive

[singlepic id=15 w=320 h=240 float=left]The news of Governor Rick Perry jumping into the Republican nomination race for President, released a media tsunami that assaulted my brain. In no time at all, people came up with a long list of negatives about him. In a democracy, honest and thorough scrutiny of anyone’s records seeking a public office is not only the prerogative of the electorate, but it is its duty.

Being a lifelong critic of Islam, red flags popped up in my head at his purported cozy relationship with Islam and prompted me to look very closely at the governor’s record on this particular issue and at this specific time.
