Action Alert: Protect Religous Heritage in Texas!!!

"as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God."
1 Peter 2:16

From Texas Values:
This week, opponents of religious freedom and our nation’s religious heritage are pressuring textbook publishers and elected State Board of Education (SBOE) members to eliminate references to Moses and Judeo-Christian principles from new textbooks being proposed for approval. The SBOE has the authority to review and approve new social studies textbooks on a periodic basis and they are currently scheduled to make a decision by TOMORROW - Friday, Nov. 21. Americans United for Separation of Church and State and Texas Freedom Network are two of the groups demanding that publishers rewrite history books on this topic. Click here to contact the board right now.

Jonathan Saenz, president of Texas Values Action, released the following statement:

“The continued efforts by anti-religious freedom groups attacking references to Moses, Judeo-Christian values and their impact on American law, government, and founding in our Texas textbooks are outrageous. From the halls of the U.S. Capitol to the U.S. Supreme Court and even here on the Texas Capitol grounds the images, references and monuments highlighting Moses and the Ten Commandments make clear the influence they have on our law, government and founding. You don’t need a Ph.D. to know that Moses, the Ten Commandments and Judeo-Christian principles have had a significant impact on America since its founding. The efforts by these “Moses Deniers” to rewrite history should be firmly rejected and Texas residents should contact their State Board of Education member immediately to ask them to support our American religious heritage and reject these shameful attacks by fringe groups who seek to rewrite our nation’s founding.”

Earlier this week, Texas Values Action presented testimony to the State Board of Education discrediting the efforts by some who want to eliminate references to Moses and Judeo-Christian principles and texts that relate to the Ten Commandments from proposed Texas textbooks. Read more.

Take Action: Please contact the State Board of Education and immediately ask them to support our nation’s religious heritage and reject these shameful attacks by fringe groups who seek to rewrite our nation’s founding.

Bowl Game: Aggies hiding from the Longhorns?!?

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
2 Timothy 1:7

Well, THAT's interesting:

Report: SEC/Texas A&M want to avoid Horns-Aggies Texas Bowl

Since discussion about a possible face off between the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies in the Texas Bowl on December 29 at NRG Stadium in Houston first surfaced when the Horns became bowl eligible on Saturday evening, it was only a matter of time until reports started emerging about one school or the other not wanting to play the game.

And so while some believe that neither administration wants the game, the first report emerged on Tuesday morning suggesting that the Aggies and/or the SEC don't want the game to happen.

Chip Brown of Horns Digest is reporting the following:
Two sources close to the situation told SEC officials have indicated to bowls with SEC and Big 12 tie-ins that the SEC won't support a Texas vs Texas A&M postseason matchup. In short, A&M has too much to lose from a potential loss.
The report is furthering the growing narrative that Texas A&M is the school with more to lose, especially on the recruiting trail, and enabled by the fact that the SEC and bowl executives will be working from a pool of six teams to determine bowl placement -- the conference does have the power to ensure that the Longhorns and Aggies don't face off in the Texas Bowl if that's what the SEC decides.

Jason Villalba attacks private citizens as "GOONS"

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ."
2 Corinthians 11:13

Because, heaven forbid, citizen activists say something a government official doesn't like:

  • Krause: The 80% number team Straus is putting out is bogus.
    • A lot of Scott's support is "like an iceberg." (ie. below the surface)
  • Lulz: Villalba calls Straus "Reagenesque."
  •  Villalba ignores election results in 2014 and 2012 when calling private citizens goons.
  • Straus obstructed the current border security operations for close to a year (until doing so became untenable in public opinion).
  • Straus failed to deliver on pro-Life legislation during the 83rd general session.

Scott Turner releases Legislative Priorities

"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan."
Proverbs 29:2

Highlights include: Border Security, School Choice, and Conservative Budget!!!
“As we approach the upcoming 84th Texas Legislature, I am encouraged by the opportunities we have to accomplish great things for the State of Texas. Those opportunities begin on January 13, 2015 when each member of the Texas House will be called upon to select who will lead us as Speaker of the House.

As a candidate for the Office of Speaker of the House, I have spent the last several months traveling across our great state and have heard the voice of the people calling for their representatives to help promote and protect our shared values of faith, family, and free enterprise. It is important that we focus on the future of Texas and not rest on the perceived victories of the past.

As the next Speaker of the House, I want us to focus on securing our borders, fully implementing E-verify, and completely ending the practice of sanctuary cites. Moreover, we can no longer put off giving parents and families a choice to provide the best educational environment for their children. Additionally, we must provide a solid financial environment for our state by repealing the Gross Margins Tax and implementing a fiscally conservative budget that exemplifies responsible stewardship of the taxpayers’ money.

I look forward to working with my fellow members to seize the opportunities set before us, work on the passage of the critical legislation the people are calling for, and move forward in a bipartisan effort to ensure true freedom and prosperity for Texas.”

Becoming Belle Knox (Part 4): How to Hustle in the Porn Industry (Warning: GRAPHIC)

"While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage."
2 Peter 2:19

[Author's Note: View Part 1 here; Part 2 here; Part 3 here.]

Episode 4 of Miriam Weeks' saga follows her to the Porn convention.  There, we get to meet her oh so classy fans.  Like part 3, understand that there are images in this video that don't leave a lot to the imagination:

  • When she won her award, other girls screamed at her and called her a slut.
  • "I thought this was a part-time job, that I could compartmentalize Miriam and Belle...but I was naive to think I could do that..because it becomes you like it's own identity and you can't just take that identity out whenever you want to, you have to constantly be your porn alter ego."
  • Signing graphic pictures of yourself for strangers.
    • Author's Note: Think about that.... 
  • She's barely been doing porn for a year.
  • A crap-ton of her money goes to expenses.
