Gov. Rick Perry

5th Circuit Court of Appeals Issues Stay Of Scott Panetti Execution

The stay does not permanently halt the execution of mentally ill murderer Scott Panetti; it simply puts the execution on hold until such time as the court considers and disposes of “the late arriving and complex legal questions at issue in this matter.”

Viguerie: Governor Rick Perry’s Friends Are The Enemies Of Conservatives

Conservatives got the message loud and clear that Texas Governor Rick Perry is not one of us. He joined the inside-the-Beltway political class when he hired Henry Barbour, the shadowy figure behind infamous race-baiting ads in the recent Mississippi GOP Senate runoff and Steve Schmidt, the brains behind John McCain’s disastrous 2008 presidential bid and the inside operative who trashed Governor Sarah Palin throughout the campaign.

Perry: It’s Very Possible That ISIS Crossed Southern Border

Allahpundit, Hot Air

Perry is conspicuously calling for all military options against ISIS. ISIS has every incentive to kill Americans here. Nothing would lift their prestige in the jihadiverse more than an attack on American soil. They have nothing to lose at this point by holding off either.

Rick Perry: Democrats' "Lawfare" Indictment Backfires

The Perry indictment has backfired, but it is evidence of how far the left will go to achieve their political ends.

Left Ramps Up Lawfare Against Republicans

While the case against Rick Perry seems extraordinarily weak, the indictment is the latest indication that the left will use all tools available to pursue its political ends. 

Rick Perry Wins

Erick Erickson, Red State

The drunk in charge of the Travis County D.A.’s Office wants to settle a political grudge with a criminal indictment. Perry will make more money off this than the D's ever will. R's should be thanking Rosemary “Vodka” Lehmberg for highlighting just what contempt progressives have for the democratic process.

Rick Perry Indictment A Political Assassination

If Rick Perry deserves to be indicted for "coercion of a public official" then so does Barack Obama.

Witch Hunt: Cruz, Jindal Stand By Perry

Jennifer Harper, Washington Times

“There has been a sad history of the Travis Cty District Attorney’s Office engaging in politically-motivated prosecutions, and this latest indictment of the governor is extremely questionable. Rick Perry is a friend, he’s a man of integrity. I'm proud to stand with Rick Perry.” Sen Ted Cruz said in a statement.

Richard Berkow, BizPac Review

Rick Perry announced that he's deploying 1,000 TX Nat'l Guard troops to the border as a “force multiplier,” but the scope of their mission and level of authority remain a secret. The Guardsmen are destined to support the TX Dep't of Public Safety, as they cope with the influx of illegal immigrants.

Rick Perry's Iowa Comeback?

Cameron Joseph, The Hill

Two TX W. House hopefuls wowed Iowa voters. Both Rick Perry & Sen. Ted Cruz did themselves the most favors over the past few days, according to a number of IA R's. LA Gov. Bobby Jindal also drew compliments.

Do Paul and Perry Represent GOP Split Personality on Iraq?

The question of whether or not to fix Obama’s failed policy in Iraq by sending American ground troops back to the Middle East is going to be something the next President must deal with, no matter who enters the Republican (or Democratic) primaries in 2016, and it is necessary to ask if it is wise to unilaterally take that option off the table.

Citizen Militias Arriving At Southern Border

At least 10 citizen militia organizations are now in action along the US - Mexico border supplementing the Border Patrol, the Texas National Guard and Department of Public Safety, and local law enforcement agents.

Ken Cuccinelli: Fed. Government Can’t Stop Border States From Protecting Themselves From Illegal Invaders

Former Virginia Attorney General, constitutional conservative, and current Senate Conservatives Fund President Ken Cuccinelli shares his constitutional viewpoint of Gov. Rick Perry’s plans to deploy the Texas National Guard to the Rio Grand Valley section of the Texas-Mexico border.

We Like Governor Perry’s National Guard Deployment, But…

Much as we like Governor Perry’s plan to deploy the Texas National Guard to the Rio Grande valley that, by itself, won’t stem the flow of illegal aliens crossing the border.

Perry Announces Details Of Texas National Guard Border Deployment

Texas Gov. Rick Perry told President Obama and the House Committee on Homeland Security that the border between the U.S. and Mexico is less secure today than at any time in the recent past. Now he's deploying 1,000 Texas National Guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley because the federal government has failed to adequately secure the border.

Gov. Perry vs. Feds On Border Surge

Vangoghssister, Red State

“The responsibility for securing the border rests exclusively on the federal gov't. The federal gov't’s failure to secure the border has created an incentive for families to send their children on a dangerous journey. Until the federal gov't fulfills its duty, it falls on the State of Texas to address those obligations," Perry stated.

Rand Paul in Third Place?

The findings of the new NBC News/Marist Poll are an early wake-up call that we conservatives must avoid what our good friend Morton Blackwell, founder and president of the Leadership Institute, and Virginia’s long-serving Republican National Committeeman, calls “The Sir Galahad Theory of Politics.”
