HOUSTON, Texas — Senator Ted Cruz said the City of Houston and Mayor Annise Parker have “no legal authority, no constitutional authority and no moral authority” to issue subpoenas to pastors for their sermons and personal communications. The exclusive interview below came shortly after the Senator gathered with some of the top religious leaders in Houston to speak out against this unprecedented attack on religious liberty. During the interview, Cruz also reinforced his “common sense” call for a travel ban on people traveling from countries with an active outbreak of the Ebola virus.

Secret Ballot Results – Turkey Loses Bid For U.N. Security Council Seat…
from The Conservative Treehouse
This is considered a staggering, albeit splendid, defeat considering Turkey was anticipated to be a shoo-in for a non-permanent U.N. Security Council seat.
A report from the AP reveals that the Justice Department’s Office of Special Investigations cut a sweet deal for a number of former Nazis who immigrated to the U.S. but were outed. They were allowed to leave the country and take their S.S. benefits with them.
Something like 38 of 66 of suspected former Nazis were able to take advantage of this loop hole. There are four Nazis still living the good life on U.S. taxpayer’s dimes.

Then He Held Up Two Fingers
LifeNews has repeatedly profiled cases where doctors may too quickly began cutting up patients who are not really dead to begin harvesting their organs for donations.
These kinds of cases have happened before, as supposedly “brain dead” patients have come back to life just before having their vital organs taken from them after prematurely being declared dead. Although there is nothing morally wrong with organ donations — in fact, it’s arguably a very pro-life action to take — these kinds of stories ought to remind organ donors (and any patient and their family) that doctors are too quickly declaring patients dead or too far gone to treat.

The chaos began Saturday afternoon, when several people were injured by thrown bottles near the school’s 1 Butler Court during a party thrown to celebrate the city’s annual Pumpkin Festival.

Matt Stolhandske got some space in The Washington Post with a column titled “I’m a gay rights activist. I want to give $150,00 to someone who opposes gay marriage.”
Actually Mr. Stolhandske wants to crowd source the money, he doesn’t want to open his own wallet. He’s trying to get other people give him money and trust that he’ll pass it along to the owners of Sweet Cakes, Melissa and Aaron Klein, who face a $150,000 lawsuit for not baking a gay wedding cakes.
Besides the annoying tone of the piece (it’s mostly about Stolhandske) a commenter named Delphic1 did a little research on the “oh, so generous” Mr. Stolhandske that puts the piece in whole different light.
