1. Back From Austin

Tuesday morning and I am back from Austin and glad to be back on the air with you guys. My wife and I went to Austin over the Easter holiday to visit friends and of course recharge from a busy first part of the year. In Austin, we were able to go to the Capitol and look around. It wasn’t our first visit to the Capitol and won’t be our last. There is just something special about going our State’s Capitol and taking in our rich history. It was also nice to see families enjoying picnics and time together on lawn on the Capitol. In another blog, I will write about a few places we drank and ate at while in Austin that I recommend.

I mentioned earlier that we were visiting friends in the Austin area. They are actually part of a new church plant and my wife and I had the honor of attending the church’s first Easter service. It was a great service and I see big things happening for the church in the future. If you are ever in Austin and want to check out a young church doing things the right way, check out Revive Church.

2. Voter Fraud (link)

The Department of Justice along with Democrats like to claim that voter fraud doesn’t happen and if it does, it’s not real easy to pull off. Interesting…

In a new video provided to Breitbart.com, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas demonstrates why Holder should stop attacking voter ID laws–by walking into Holder’s voting precinct and showing the world that anyone can obtain Eric Holder’s primary ballot. Literally.

The video shows a young man entering a Washington, DC polling place at 3401 Nebraska Avenue, NW, on primary day of this year–April 3, 2012–and giving Holder’s name and address. The poll worker promptly offers the young man Holder’s ballot to vote.

The young man then suggests that he should show his ID; the poll worker, in compliance with DC law, states: “You don’t need it. It’s all right. As long as you’re in here, you’re on our list, and that’s who you say you are, you’re okay.”

You can check out the video on the link above.

Of course some in the DOJ are already saying that the evidence is manufactured. According to the Daily Caller:

Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not returned The Daily Caller’s requests for comment on Holder’s thoughts about how the lack of a federal voter ID law — Washington falls under federal voting law jurisdiction — could have led to Holder’s disenfranchisement by a white man.

Instead, an anonymous DOJ official went to left-leaning news website Talking Points Memo to respond to the story.

“It’s no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones,” the unnamed DOJ official told TPM.

What an embarrassment this DOJ is. Voter fraud can happen anywhere and Democrats are doing everything they can to keep it going.

3. Santorum Hits the Campaign Trail (link)

After taking 5 days off, Rick Santorum is hitting the campaign trail again.

Defying personal and professional pressures, Rick Santorum is returning to the U.S. presidential campaign trail in his uphill battle against presumptive Republicannominee Mitt Romney.

After a five-day break to celebrate Easter, help care for his sick daughter and thrash out strategy, Santorum kicks off the fight for his home state, Pennsylvania, in earnest on Tuesday.

He needs to win the state by a decent margin to stay in the race against Romney, whose allies have already begun negative TV attacks against the conservative former senator.

This is just becoming embarrassing for Santorum and his campaign.

4. Zimmerman’s Family Goes After Holder (link)

The DOJ and Obama Administration has stayed silent about the New Black Panthers and their threats of a “race war” and bounty on George Zimmerman’s head. Now, Zimmerman’s family want to know why.

The family member believes the reason Holder hasn’t made those arrests is because he, like the members of the New Black Panther Party, is black.

“I am writing you to ask you why, when the law of the land is crystal clear, is your office not arresting the New Black Panthers for hate crimes?” the family member wrote to Holder.

“The Zimmerman family is in hiding because of the threats that have been made against us, yet the DOJ has maintained an eerie silence on this matter. These threats are very public. If you haven’t been paying attention just do a Google search and you will find plenty. Since when can a group of people in the United States put a bounty on someone’s head, circulate Wanted posters publicly, and still be walking the streets?”

The New Black Panthers have issued ultimatums to the Sanford authorities, saying they want Zimmerman arrested “dead or alive.” They have placed a bounty on Zimmerman’s head, and have called for the building of an army of vigilantes to track him down and effect a citizen’s arrest.

Most recently, the New Black Panther Party has called for violence.

In a conference call recorded over the weekend, the militant group said it planned to “suit up and boot up” and prepare for the next stages of the “race war.”

I gotta say, I think the Zimmerman family is right on this one.

5. Dumb story of the morning (link)

Criminals and Facebook.

A Port Angeles man is on the lam but still updating his Facebook page.Travis A. Nicolaysen, 26, escaped from officers in two foot chases Wednesday and a dragnet that included a police dog tracking him through a residential neighborhood.

The dog came up only with a blue bandanna he had been wearing.

His first day on the run, one friend posted toNicolaysen’s Facebook page, “cops all over you.” Nicolaysen responded a few hours later with “got away thanks bro.”

A post from another friend told him to be careful. Another urged him to surrender and set a better example for his children. “You’re not getting any younger and you’re looking at a lot of time,” the friend writes. A picture on the Facebook page shows Nicolaysen with two toddlers.

This guy will be caught because of his posts on Facebook.

6. Good Brews Good News of the Day (link)

What would you have done?

A restaurateur from south Florida who just moved to Orange County got a taste of Southern California kindness when someone returned his lost wallet and the $10,000 it contained.

The man mistakenly left the cash-stuffed wallet on a beach bench Saturday in Laguna Beach. He had withdrawn the hefty amount to pay a contractor for renovating a new restaurant that he plans to open on Pacific Coast Highway, according to police.

He went for a walk near Main Beach and sat down on the bench at about 1:15 p.m., but forgot to take his wallet when he left. A passer-by found the wallet and handed it to lifeguards, police said.

“When the lifeguards opened the wallet, they see all that cash in it and  call the police,” Lt. Jason Kravetz said.
