A Top Ted Cruz Adviser Thinks Islamists Are Infiltrating the NRA

Not sure this does not belong in Weird News but never the less...



The National Rifle Association's annual board election is typically a drama-free affair. But this year, things are getting ugly. A faction within the NRA is seeking to oust anti-tax crusader and celebrated Republican strategist Grover Norquist from the gun lobby's board of directors, where he has served since 2000.

The reasons behind the recall campaign have little to do with the Second Amendment, NRA policy, or Norquist's position on gun rights. The effort is the latest move in an ongoing crusade to convince conservatives that the founder of Americans for Tax Reform is secretly in cahoots with anti-American Islamists.

The instigator of the Norquist recall is Stu Weber, a former Green Beret and pastor from Oregon. Last August, a recall petition sponsored by Weber was posted on the website RecallGrover.com. In it, Weber wrote that Norquist "has become a confusing distraction to the NRA's mission" and that he was "aware of NRA members who are considering leaving the NRA because they have done some serious homework in regard to Mr. Norquist." While speaking with Glenn Beck last August, Weber described himself as "just a member" of the NRA. He declined to be interviewed for this story. The recall site has been taken down.

While this is the first NRA board recall measure in at least 15 years, it is not necessarily a sign of a major split within the organization. Just 450 signatures from voting members were required to get it on the ballot. Members have until May 1 to cast their votes via ballots that were mailed out in American Rifleman, the NRA's magazine.

Vatican Will Replace Archbishop Who Set Up Kim Davis Meeting With Pope

The Vatican is replacing its controversial ambassador to the U.S., who arranged the meeting between Pope Francis and antigay Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis last fall.

Italian Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigaṇ will leave the position of apostolic nuncio, the equivalent of an ambassador, and will be replaced by Archbishop Christophe Pierre, a French-born clergyman who is currently the nuncio to Mexico, Catholic magazine America reports, citing Sandro Magister, a blogger who covers the Vatican.

Republicans can't stomach voting for Trumph so they are saying "nobody" wants to vote for either

They are going to attach Hillary with the NOBODY wants her or Trump.

That is all the news/propaganda networks are magically repeating today.

The organization who is for less federal oversight blames the lack of federal oversight - Flint

This was a failure at all levels: Local, state, and federal officials — we all failed the families of Flint," Synder said. "This isn't about politics nor partisanship. I'm not going to point fingers or shift blame. There's plenty of that to share and neither will help the people of Flint."

On to November, but we must GOTV to win there.

There didn't appear to be a GOTV effort here in Ohio for Hillary.

We contacted the campaign, looked for local office and we were discouraged as we had the week off and we're willing.

Saw a woman carrying two pieces of crap down the street.

Took my dog for a walk and saw this lady carrying a bag of dog poop (she hat two dogs on leashes) in one hand and a Ted Cruz sign in the other (two pieces of crap).

The way she was carrying the sign was as creepy as Cruz, she was holding it so cars could read it as they pass. BTW Ted Cruz signs are creepy as well.

I felt like I needed a shower just walking past her.

So God anointed Ted Cruz to be the GOP nominee, then God told Carson to endorse Trump

What's up with that?
