Student Asks Cop: ‘You’re Gonna Shoot Me?’ – Cop Answers By Shooting Him Five Times

‘You Going To Shoot Me?’ Asked Student Before He Was Shot Five Times, Once In The Back – Conservative Infidel

.

.
New details have emerged in the killing of 23-year-old Texas college student Cameron Redus, who was shot five times – and once in the back – by a police officer during a traffic stop.

Redus, a student at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, was pulled over by campus police corporal Christopher Carter a few blocks from the student’s apartment. Redus had been driving under the influence, according to KENS 5.

An altercation soon broke out between Redus and Carter. According to Carter, Redus successfully wrested Carter’s police baton from his hands at one point, though the officer re-acquired it soon after.

According to a neighbor who overheard the incident, Carter then instructed Redus to surrender. Redus responded, “Oh, you’re gonna shoot me?” in a sarcastic tone.

Carter did just that. He shot Redus – who was unarmed – five times, according to an autopsy report recently obtained by KENS 5.

The bullets were fired at close range and hit him in the left eye, chest, left elbow, right hip and back. The shot to the back was likely the one that killed him, according to the report.

Redus’s friends described him as “gentle” and “well-liked.” His family said that Redus clearly made poor choices that night, but did not deserve to die.

Carter is on administrative leave pending the results an investigation. UIW has so far maintained that Carter will return to work in an administrative capacity but will no longer go on patrols.

9 Out Of 10 Texas Voters Want Obamacare Repealed, Welfare Recipients Drug Tested

Texas Takes Stand: 9 Out Of 10 Voters Want Obamacare Repealed And Welfare Recipients Drug Tested – Freedom Outpost

Just because one part of the country has seemingly lost its mind and is willing to give up their freedom for the promise of more security doesn’t mean everyone is on board.

In Texas, where voters took to the polls Tuesday night, a completely different set of ideas is at play. And if nationwide sentiment is any indication, other conservative and libertarian leaning states will soon follow.

Though only about half of the votes have been tallied so far, the people of Texas have spoken. It’s a roar, in fact. Voters are standing in unison and have overwhelmingly approved a variety of propositions that may well send shivers down the spines of supporters of things like universal health care, rampant welfare dependency, special privileges and gun rights.

The following results speak for themselves.

First on the chopping block is the Patient Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare. Apparently, 93% of Texans don’t take well to having the federal government mandate what they should or shouldn’t buy with the penalty for non-compliance being IRS harassment and prison time:

The Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare”, should be repealed.

.

.
This one might be a little scary for those folks who spend their lives on their couches smoking weed or mainlining heroin while hard working Americans pay for their dope:

Texas recipients of taxpayer-funded public assistance should be subject to random drug testing as a condition of receiving benefits.

.

.
You’ll never see the U.S. Congress vote for this, because they’re way too special:

All elected officials and their staff should be subject to the same laws, rules, regulations, and ordinances as their constituents.

.

.
If you’re an anti-gunner this is where you should stop reading:

Texas should support Second Amendment liberties by expanding locations where concealed handgun license-holders may legally carry.

.

.
It’s a sad state of affairs when the public has to actually vote on their right to pray in public places. Isn’t that covered by the First Amendment? Just in case it isn’t Texas will make sure you can worship and pray as you see fit:

Texans should be free to express their religious beliefs, including prayer, in public places.

.

.
Silly Texans. Didn’t anyone tell you that it’s government, not businesses, that creates jobs and grows the economy?

Texas should abolish the state franchise tax, also known as the margins tax, to encourage business growth.

.

.
Common sense laws and regulations. What a novel concept.

There’s a reason why Americans all over the country are flocking to Texas in the hopes of finding the American Dream that has been lost in so many other parts of the Union.

Poll: Greg Abbott Extends Lead Over Abortion Barbie To 11 Points In Texas Gubernatorial Race

Poll: Greg Abbott Extends Lead Over Abortion Barbie To 11 Points – Weasel Zippers

It would be immensely satisfying to watch Abbott crush Davis.

.

.
Via Texas Tribune:

After what are shaping up to be easy primary wins in March for the leading gubernatorial candidates, Republican Greg Abbott starts the general election race for governor with an 11-point lead over Democrat Wendy Davis, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.

Meanwhile, several statewide races on the Republican primary ballot – for lieutenant governor, attorney general and comptroller – appear headed for May runoffs. None of the leaders in those races looks close to the 50 percent support they would need to win next month’s primary outright.

In the governor’s race, Abbott would beat Davis 47 percent to 36 percent in a general election held today, with 17 percent of registered voters saying they have not made up their minds about which candidate to support, according to the poll.

“We’ve been talking since the beginning of this race about whether anything would be different, and we’re not seeing anything that’s different,” said Jim Henson, co-director of the poll and head of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin. “There was some talk about how Davis had done better in our last poll, and that was partially an artifact of her rise in the fall, and we’re seeing something of a reassertion of the normal pattern.”

In the October survey, Davis’ announcement and sudden political celebrity cut the Republican’s lead over her to 6 percentage points. Now, the distance between the two has widened a bit.

Wendy Davis, who will never be governor of Texas, is not a whore, she is something worse, a Left-Wing politician

Abortion Barbie, AKA Wendy Davis, is a shameless liar who  turned her back on her kids, and screwed her husband around, after she was done with his money of course. In other words, she is a typical self-absorbed, morally retarded, power-hungry Democratic politician! But I do not wish to suffer anyone calling her a political whore, frankly, whores do not deserve such comparisons.

Donald Douglas has more

ia TPNN, “Democrat Wendy Davis, Candidate for Governor of Texas, Caught in Major Lies.”

And now here’s Robert Stacy McCain, “Let’s Slut-Shame @WendyDavisTexas!“:

Smitty already took a whack at the Wendy Davis piñata today, and that’s probably enough Wendy Davis bashing for the week.

She’s so far down in the polls as to be hopelessly doomed. She will lose to Greg Abbott in November without any further help from us.

However, the point of mocking progressive celebrity women is not because such mockery will contribute to their electoral defeat. No, the purpose of deriding Democrat women is to inspire feminists to frothing rage over the alleged sexism of conservatives.

Heh. I love the frothing.

So, Abortion Barbie is a liar? I’m shocked — shocked, I tell you!

— Leslee Andersen (@bookgirl8) January 20, 2014

“Over time, the Davises’ marriage was strained. In November 2003, Wendy Davis moved out. Jeff Davis said that was right around the time the final payment on their Harvard Law School loan was due. ‘It was ironic,’ he said. ‘I made the last payment, and it was the next day she left.’ . . . In his initial divorce filing, Jeff Davis said the marriage had failed, citing adultery on her part . . .”
– Dallas Morning News

It would seem Davis’s story of overcoming, and pulling herself up by her bootstraps, etc. is, well, to put it nicely nothing but  bovine excrement! So, as McCain notes, since Davis supporters will accuse us of mysoginy no matter what we say, and no matter what the facts are, let’s have some fun!

Conservatives are going to be slammed as misogynists no matter what we say or do, so we might as well have some fun and try to do something that will provoke a wildly unhinged Amanda Marcotte rant.

Most of the resentment over Wendy Davis’s fudging of her biography —“My language should be tighter,” she admitted to the Dallas Morning News — is focused on her depiction of herself as a struggling “single mom,” despite the way she hooked up with an older sugar daddy when she was 21, married him when she was 24, moved into a posh neighborhood, and got him to pay her way through Harvard Law. Then Wendy left him with custody not only of the daughter they’d had together, but also with her daughter from her first marriage.

Not to be judgmental or anything, but that’s scarcely the tale of hardship and woe that wins much sympathy from actual single moms, many of whom are conservative women, and disinclined to RSVP to the Wendy Davis Feminist Victimhood Pity Party.

I would love to introduce @WendyDavisTexas to my mother so she can hear a real story of a former hard-off single mom who overcame odds.

Of course, what did we expect from a publicity seeking politician who champions the “right” to kill a baby in the womb as the ultimate right? Did we really expect things like family, or parenthood, or marriage vows to mean a damned thing to Wendy Davis? The only things that matter to her is her own power, and doing whatever it takes to increase that power.

Ammunition Magazine Manufacturer Relocating From Leftist-Controlled Colorado To Texas, Wyoming

Magpul To Depart For Texas, Wyoming In 2014 – Daily Camera

Magpul Industries threatened to leave Colorado after the legislature passed a measure banning weapons magazines with more than 15 rounds.

And now that is official.

The Erie-based ammunition magazine manufacturer said Thursday it is relocating its operations to Cheyenne and Texas.

.

.
Most of the 200-plus employees will be moving to Wyoming, where manufacturing and distribution will take place, said spokesman Duane Liptak.

“Moving operations to states that support our culture of individual liberties and personal responsibility is important,” CEO Richard Fitzpatrick said in a news release. “This relocation will also improve business operations and logistics as we utilize the strengths of Texas and Wyoming in our expansion.”

The move is expected to happen within the next 12 to 16 months, the company said, and it hopes to relocate at least 92 percent of its workforce outside of Colorado in that time. It hasn’t been decided whether every single employee will be moved out of the state.

Employees were notified Thursday about the move, and most are not expected to make the move and will be out of a job, Liptak said.

Paula Mehle, economic development coordinator for the town of Erie, said there is some hope that a small number of employees will remain in Colorado. But, she said, new tenants would be sought for the buildings Magpul vacates.

“It’s a political issue at the state level that the town doesn’t have any control over,” Mehle said.

Son of Cedar Hill Mayor killed while committing invasion

Cedar Hill, Texas that is. It is about 15 minutes from my home, I go there all the time. Bearing Arms has details

The estranged adult son of Mayor Rob Franke of Cedar Hills, Texas was just shot to death Christmas Eve while committing a home invasion:

A Cedar Hill homeowner fatally shot an intruder who broke into his home shortly before midnight Christmas Eve, authorities say.

Joshua Slaven, 31, was pronounced dead at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Dallas County medical examiner.

The city of Cedar Hill’s website identifies Slaven as the son of Mayor Rob Franke.

The homeowner, Gareth Long, was questioned by police but not arrested. The standard practice is to refer such cases to a grand jury, which is likely to decline to indict Long under the state’s castle doctrine.

“It’s very unfortunate that Mr. Long was forced into a position of having to defend himself, his wife and his home from a nighttime intruder,” said Chris Knox, Long’s attorney. “Nobody ever asks to be placed in such a life-threatening position, but Mr. Long’s actions were absolutely justified and completely protected under Texas law.”

The story is tragic for Mr. Long who apparently gave Slaven multiple warnings before finally firing to defend his family.

Another case of self-defense. How would it have ended if the gun control nuts had their way?

The BCS era ends this season………………But the ending will resemble the beginning

In 1998, Tennessee defeated Florida State to win the first BCS title. Five years later LSU beat OU to claim the crown. In 2004 Auburn was screwed out of BCS finale as USC, the C stood as it turns out for CHEATING, routed OU. Two years later My beloved Gators were projected to get blown out buy the great Buckeyes, but it was the Buckeyes who carried their over rated Big Ten teeth home in a bag. LSU whipped the Buckeyes in 2007 and my Gators bested OU in 2008. In 2009 ‘Bama bested Texas, and in 2010 Auburn topped Oregon. In 2011 the championship came down to two SEC teams, with Alabama besting LSU, and in 2012, Alabama, one of six SEC teams that would have throttled Notre Dame exposed Notre Dame as an FCS school.

Now, in 2013, the BCS era closes as Auburn plays Florida State, and tries to win the SEC’s eighth straight BCS National Title, and the SEC’s 11th in 18 seasons, my Gators destroyed FSU 52-20 in 1996 to win the National Championship. In other words, you FSU fans are walking down a path of certain destruction. You are not playing an ACC schedule any more, you are stepping up, WAY up, to play an SEC team now. Good luck ‘Noles, you are going to need it!

 

Open carry of handguns in Texas?

Greg Abbott, our current Attorney General, and likely the next governor is a proponent of allowing concealed handgun license holders to open carry their weapons. I am fine with this. Open carry brings another level of responsibility with it. With concealed carry no one else knows you are armed. That goes away when you open carry, so it will be interesting what a new law would require of the license holder, and how police would handle the new laws. Of course, the nervous Nellies who would freak out when they saw a man or women with a .45 on their hip are an issue. We have largely become a society that fears guns, I wonder how that will be handled? Possibly requiring the license holder to wear their permit in a visible place when they open carry? 

 

Stacy McCain, AKA Gramps: You do not have to be a buffoon to write for the NY Times, but it helps

Do Liberals ever tire of bashing the South? Of course not, after all, the South IS the most Conservative part of the country, and the most patriotic. And the Left will never forgive the South for taking a stand against a power hungry federal government. McCain has the scoop

This is just downright bizarre:

[T]he South is once again committed to taking a backward path. By refusing to expand health care for the working poor through Medicaid, which is paid for by the federal government under Obamacare, most of the old Confederacy is committed to keeping millions of its own fellow citizens in poverty and poor health. They are dooming themselves, further, as the Left-Behind States.

Just another historical illiterate who thinks Washington has a grove of money trees or something. McCain eviscerates this tool

Do you believe this? “Free” money from the federal government? Medicaid as a job-creation dynamo? While I have not bothered to dig down on the data here, the basic economics of it is like saying that if you take $5 out of your pants pocket and put it in your coat pocket, you will then have $10. Government has no money of its own to spend. Every cent expended by government must come either from tax revenue or from borrowing, and borrowing — i.e., deficit spending — is ultimately a drag on economic growth, because capital invested in government bonds (which is how deficit spending is financed) is capital not invested in private-sector businesses.

The liberal belief in “free government money” is like one of those quasi-religious magical thinking exercises that Ace discusses here.

To cite X-number of people signing up for “expanded Medicaid” as “success” is simply to say that if you’re giving away the taxpayers’ money, moochers will gladly take their share of the loot.

Is the South doomed to be the “Left-Behind States”? Next time you hear of someone moving from Texas to Detroit, let me know.

92-Year-Old Texas Woman Fights Off Home Invader – KHOU

.

.
A 92-year-old woman gave a thief a run for his money when he decided to break into her home.

Opal Phelps was awakened Monday by a man in her bedroom with a mask over his face. She wasn’t scared.

“He tried to make me shut up, but he didn’t have no luck at it,” Phelps said.

The senior citizen did not give in to the thief’s demands. When he asked for $20, she informed him she didn’t have any money and was unaware of what she did with her purse.

He then instructed her to put on her shoes.

“He had a hold of my leg trying to put them shoes on, and they hard to get on, and I just took my other foot and kicked him right in the face,” Phelps said.

She had a Life Alert monitor on her nightstand and when the intruder grabbed it, she hit the button. The man took off, but he did get away with a gun she had near her bed.

She was defiant to the end.

“I’m going to stay here. I told that cop I was getting me another gun,” Phelps said. “He says get it. I’m going to use it next time I think.”

Texas Election Turnout Nearly Doubles Under New ID Law, Dispelling Leftist Voter Suppression Myth

Voter Turnout In Texas Nearly Doubles Under New ID Law – Daily Caller

.

The first Texas elections under a contentious new photo ID law drew interesting conclusions for an off-year election that normally draws a low amount of voters.

There were nine proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution, and the number of votes tallied was nearly double what it was in 2011. Democrats and civil rights groups have long argued that voter ID requirements suppress turnout, particularly in poor and minority communities.

All nine measures were approved during this election, and dealt primarily with taxes and state budgets, according to Ballot Pedia.

Taxes and state budgets were also the most popular ballot measures for 2011, but the voter ID law had not been passed during that election.

Statewide, an average of about 672,874 Texans voted on those 10 constitutional amendments in 2011. In 2013, the number of votes cast in Texas reached 1,099,670.

In Hidalgo County, which is 90 percent Hispanic, just over 4,000 voted in the constitutional amendment election in 2011. In 2013, an average of over 16,000 voted according to the Texas secretary of state’s office.

Greg Abbott, the Republican attorney general and likely governor nominee, stated that critics of the voter ID law had “run out of claims” about those struggling to vote without an ID.

That hasn’t stopped opponents of the voter ID law from continuing their mission to get the law thrown out. The Houston Chronicle reports that the Justice Department, civil rights groups and U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey have filed a federal lawsuit to get the law overturned.

Abbott has asked for the case to be thrown out, calling the whole situation “overhyped.”

Wisconsin the latest state to prove anti-concealed carry nuts jobs wrong

In 1987 Florida passed concealed carry legislation, and the Left predicted Wild West shootouts and streets running with blood. That has not happened, but violent crime has been reduced. In 1995, I moved here to Texas, and the debate over concealed carry was raging, with the same predictions of blood in the streets, etc. Well, again, those anti self-defense zealots were wrong, as they have been in Georgia, Arizona, and many other states that allow concealed carry. Bob Owens reports today that two years after Wisconsin passed their concealed carry law, the gun grabbers are still wrong

Two years after 200,000 Cheeseheads get concealed carry, EVERYONE in Wisconsin is dead, just as gun control cultists predicted.

Or not.

November 1 marks the second anniversary of the passing of the once high profile – and still highly contentious – Wisconsin concealed carry law, with more than 200,000 permits issued in that time. Just as noteworthy are the 5,800 permit applications that were denied for various reasons. The permit fee has also dropped to $40, down from $50 when Wisconsin became the 49th state to allow concealed carry two years ago.

In every state where “shall issue” concealed carry has been implemented over the past 20+ years, gun control fanatics have warned that every minor conflict and fender bender will turn into a combination of the OK Corral and the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.

The fanatics, of course, give not the first damn about public safety, their twisted Collectivist minds just cannot tolerate armed Americans defending themselves. If it is one thing a Collectivist loathes, it is Individual liberty. These miscreants will only be sated when we are all wards of the State, and totally dependent on the government for everything, especially protection from criminals

 

Ted Cruz Sets Trayvon Martin’s Mother Straight On Stand Your Ground Laws

WOW! God bless Senator Cruz

I do, of course feel sympathy for this woman, she lost her child, but my sympathy ends when she tries to use the justified killing of her son, and yes, it was, I believe justified, to stamp out my right to defend my life, and the lives of my family. Sorry, but a mother’s grief pales in comparison to the grief that legislating against the most basic human right, that of self-defense, would cause. No “justice” will ever come from disarming the law-abiding or interfering with their right to protect themselves by criminalizing a basic human right.

 

Concealed carry permit holder stops potential mass shooting by shooting man armed with rifle

Of course the media will not have time for this story

 

This is a story of a mass shooting that might have been if not for the efforts of a concealed carrier. However, don’t expect to see this story on the national news since there were no fatalities.

Several guests, in their 20′s and 30′s were attending a party at a Glendale, AZ home when one of the guests, identified only as a 27 year old male, got into an altercation with several people at the home.

The 27 year old was asked to leave, which he initially did. However, shortly thereafter, the 27 year old returned, this time armed with a rifle.

The suspected shooter fired rounds off outside the home and when he pointed the gun at other guests, a 39 year old guest drew a concealed handgun and fired on the suspect, who was hit by the gunfire.

The concealed carrier waited for police, explained what happened and was released after giving a statement to police.

 

Just imagine if some Republicans gave as much effort to attacking Democrats as they do attacking genuine Conservatives?

Hell, they might actually do some good

Senate Republicans furiously attacked Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Utah Sen. Mike Lee behind closed doors and leaked details of an off-record meeting to the media to harm the two senators, according to Lee.

Lee divulged some of the details of a closed-door meeting on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Friday, since he said much of it had been leaked to the media by his own colleagues.

“[N]ormally, I don’t comment at all on closed-door meetings between Republican senators,” Lee said. “It’s a pretty strict rule we follow. But one exception I’ll make is circumstances like this, where contents of the meeting were leaked deliberately by several of my colleagues and leaked in a very one-sided way. I’m happy to tell you about it here.”

I am sure these gutless Republicans would tell me “we have to win elections first”. Well, good luck winning any election if you continue to kick your base in the groin!

 

Rep. King “I can never forgive Ted Cruz”

Boo Hoo!

Via Newsmax:

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., one of the leaders of a GOP “moderate revolt” on Monday, says he can never forgive Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for leading an effort to defund Obamacare as part of a budget resolution.

“This was a doomed process from the start,” King told CNN on Monday. King said he went along with a vote to defund the Affordable Care Act because he was told it would get the ball rolling and prevent the government from shutting down.

“It’s obvious now there is no end in sight,” King told CNN. “This is a fool’s errand.”

“They live in these narrow echo chambers where they listen to themselves and their tea party friends, and that keeps them going, forgetting that the rest of the country thinks we’re crazy,” King said. “I can never forgive Ted Cruz for what he’s done and the people who stood with him against their party.”

I get it. King and other Republicans believe that standing strong to principles will hurt the GOP. But really, do king and McCain and the rest think that putting politics over principles will get more people to support them? Maybe they should, for once, pay attention to who is saying the GOP will be hurt by this. The Democrats are, the media is. Do these Republicans who are so deeply offended by Senators like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz really not grasp that listening to advice from Democrats is not a wise path to travel? Has it ever dawned on them that Democrats are saying what they are BECAUSE they are afraid the GOP will unite behind Conservatism, for once?

I may not be a politician, but I know that taking advice from your enemies on how to beat them is not going to end well for you. I also know that voters are not going to flock to a party that not only shows no backbone, but attacks their own when they do.

 

Shocking News! White House Chief of Staff outrageously outraged over Ted Cruz remarks

Via Zion’s Trumpet

Via Politico:

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough says he’s outraged by comments from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) that members of the U.S. military would be essentially helping Al Qaeda in Syria.

“I am outraged for somebody to suggest that our people would be serving as allies to Al Qaeda,” McDonough said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

“Targeted, consequential, limited attack against Assad forces and Assad capabilities so that he is deterred from carrying out these actions again. Here is what it is not. It is not boots on the ground. It is not an extended air campaign. It is not Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya. This is a very concerned, concentrated, limited effort that we can carry out and that can underscore and secure our interests,” McDonough said.

Cruz said last week that the United States had no national security interest in intervening in the Syrian civil war – where elements of Al Qaeda and other Islamist groups are fighting against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
