Over 40 Dogs Vanish From Small Texas Town-Where Did They Go

DECATUR, TX (Wise County)—In a small town in north Texas over forty dogs have gone missing since December and there is only one clue linking all of the disappearances together.
"There’s no physical evidence so far, and the only apparent clue is a strange car that someone reported the same day a dog went missing in the neighborhood. But police say they still don’t have any suspect descriptions or specific vehicle details."
So forty dogs are missing from Wise County, and none of the occupants have any idea how it happened. Some speculate dog fighting rings, but most have no idea and no leads — other than a “strange car.”
The search has led them to the Wise County Facebook Page for Missing and Lost Dogs.

Breaking News: Case Against Former Governor Perry to Proceed Arrest Video Of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg

Case Against Former Gov. Perry to Proceed

Gov. Rick Perry speaks to reporters on Aug. 16, the day after a grand jury indicted him on two felony counts related to his veto of public integrity unit funding.

by Terri Langford * Editor's note: This story has been updated throughout

A judge on Tuesday rejected former Gov. Rick Perry’s attempt to throw out a two-count indictment against him, saying it's too early in the case to challenge the constitutionality of the charges.
Updated from Perry Indictment
Perry was indicted on August 15,2014 over allegations he abused the power of his office by threatening to veto funding for the state’s public integrity unit unless Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, who had pleaded guilty to drunken driving, resigned. The public integrity unit, which is charged with investigating and prosecuting state corruption, is housed within the Travis County district attorney's office.
Lehmberg, a Democrat, refused to step down. Perry later made good on his threat, vetoing the approximately $3.7 million per year budgeted to fund the unit.

America’s commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law is at stake in this case, which is why we will immediately appeal this decision to the Third District Court of Appeals.”

Governor Abbott Statement on Prosecution of Governor Perry
Governor Greg Abbott today released the following statement regarding the decision to allow legal proceedings against former Governor Rick Perry to move forward:
“The Texas governor is endowed by our Constitution with the authority to veto legislation, and it is outrageous and inappropriate that a Governor would be prosecuted for exercising that authority. The continued legal proceedings against Governor Perry conflict with the authority granted to all Governors by the Texas Constitution, and I trust they will be ultimately resolved in a manner consistent with the Constitution.”

"Fraud On The Court." David Codrea breaks most important ATF scandal story since Fast and Furious.

A note from Mike Vanderboegh at Sipsey Street Irregulars: Folks, this is the most important ATF scandal story since Fast and Furious. Please distribute it to all your email lists, post it on "gun rights blogs" and forward it to your congresscritters with the demand that they look into this. David has been working on this story behind the scenes for almost two weeks, waiting for the documents to be released. Spread it around. It will be another blow against the empire. 
The tone set by Attorney General Holder at Justice and ATF Director Jones is one established at the very top of the Obama administration.
 Judge alleges ‘fraud on the court’ by government attorneys in Dobyns case
Commenting on revelations about Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and Department of Justice (DOJ) actions in the case of retired agent Jay Dobyns against his former employer, attorney David Hardy equated them with “a BATF and DOJ Watergate... or worse,” Friday. Noting that actions taken over a civil lawsuit evidently have included concealing evidence, secret threats against witnesses, and surveillance of attorneys and witnesses, the new information lends further credence to Dobyns’ allegations and appears to show government lawyers engaged in a criminal conspiracy.
Commenting on revelations about Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and Department of Justice(DOJ) actions in the case of retired agent Jay Dobyns against his former employer, attorney David Hardy equated them with “a BATF and DOJ Watergate... or worse,” Friday. Noting that actions taken over a civil lawsuit evidently have included concealing evidence, secret threats against witnesses, and surveillance of attorneys and witnesses, the new information lends further credence to Dobyns’ allegations and appears to show government lawyers engaged in a criminal conspiracy.
“For people like me, who have sympathized with Dobyns but tried to reserve judgment about his case, the documents push us further into the retired agent’s camp,” Tim Steller of the Arizona Daily Star admitted. “You can’t read the few filings that have been unsealed in the case without wondering why the Justice Department is going to such extremes and spending so much on what is, at base, a relatively minor contractual dispute that could have ended years ago.”
Dobyns gained fame after infiltrating the Hells Angels and writing about his experiences in the New York Times bestseller, “No Angel: My Harrowing Undercover Journey to the Inner-Circle of the Hells Angels.” He has since been the subject of numerous reports focused on retaliation he has been subjected to for coming forward with information exposing official wrongdoing. He was also instrumental in providing background information on management personalities and practices involved in the Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking” scandal.
Dobyns had sued his employer for failure to properly investigate an arson attack that destroyed his home and endangered his family, and for reneging on protection agreements over death threats he received, after the bureau withdrew his cover identity following the Hells Angels case. In September, Senior Judge Francis M. Allegra of the United States Court of Federal Claims awarded Dobyns $173,000 and denied government royalty claims against Dobyns for his book, seemingly providing an end to a prolonged six-year ordeal until the government challenged that ruling in the 11th hour. In a move surprising to many case-watchers, the judge then voided his own judgment, provoking speculation but no answers as to why.

Republicans Audition Their Dog And Pony Show For Koch Brothers Millions For 2016 Elections-Audio

The Koch Brothers held their 3 day winter Freedom Partners Summit at the Ritz Carlton in California this past weekend.

The summits are attended by their allies (anonymous donors) and Republican wannabe presidential candidates. The events offer donors access to Koch strategists and top lawmakers.
Republican wannabe presidential candidates auditioning for the moohla were Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida appeared together for a policy discussion AUDIO. The three senators participated in a Sunday night forum — which was live-streamed to select media outlets in a step toward transparency at the traditionally secretive seminars. It had some of the trappings of a presidential debate, and was moderated by ABC’s Jonathan Karl, who wrapped up the event with a question on the role wealthy donors should play in politics, giving the senators a chance to defend and praise the Koch’s and other donors present in the room. Another likely candidate, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, also was on hand.

Freedom Partners' twice-as-large 2016 budget was included in a Monday briefing that Freedom Partners officials offered a record 450 allies and donors who attended the weekend summit.
The Koch Brothers have told their allies that the groups they support plan to spend $900 million to influence the 2016 elections. If they started the money flowing today it would mean spending around $1.36 million a day, every day, from now until November 8, 2016. That’s $56,899 per hour, and $948 per second.
The mega dollars to be spent in the 2016 election that will be spread across 17 allied groups in Freedom Partners the Koch-backed network that include Americans for Prosperity, the millennial-targeting Generation Opportunity and the Hispanic-wooing Libre Initiative. Taken together, the Koch-endorsed groups make up a political machine that raises and spends more than any outside network in politics - and more than the official Republican and Democratic campaign committees.
The stunning sum from Freedom Partners, Koch-endorsed groups make up a political machine that raises and spends more than any outside network in politics — and more than the official Republican and Democratic campaign committees.
But unlike the RNC, DNC and Candidates, the Koch collection of organizations is mostly made up of nonprofit groups that do not disclose their donors.
Charles and David Koch, billionaire industrialists who built Koch Industries into the second largest privately held corporation in the United States, do not pick up the tab alone. The twice-a-year summits typically end with Koch advisers urging like minded donors to pledge to open their checkbooks and support their campaigns.
Background: American businessman, philanthropist, political activist, and chemical engineer. He joined the family business Koch Industries, a conglomerate that is the second-largest privately held company in the United States, in 1970. He became president of the subsidiary Koch Engineering in 1979, and became a co-owner of Koch Industries, with older brother Charles, in 1983. He is now an executive vice president.[7]
Koch is an influential libertarian, having financed and run on the 1980 U.S. Libertarian Party presidential ticket and founded Citizens for a Sound Economy. In 1984 he broke with the Libertarian Party when it supported eliminating all taxes and Koch has since been a Republican.[3]:
Koch has contributed to several charities including Lincoln Center, Sloan Kettering, a fertility clinic at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and the American Museum of Natural History's David H. Koch Dinosaur Wing.[8] The New York State Theater at Lincoln Center, home of the New York City Ballet was renamed the David H. Koch Theater in 2008 following a gift of 100 million dollars for the renovation of the theater. CondĂ© Nast Portfolio described him as "one of the most generous but low-key philanthropists in America".[9] He and his brother Charles have also donated to political advocacy groups, including Americans for Prosperity,[3] and to political campaigns, mainly Republican.[10] He is a survivor of the USAir Flight 1493 crash in 1991. Koch is the fourth richest person in America as of 2012,[11] and the wealthiest resident of New York City as of 2013.[12] He is the ninth-wealthiest person in the world, as of 2014.[13]
