- Obama's White House is meddling in a Texas case where a Mexican citizen brutally raped and murdered a teenage girl, and was convicted and sentenced to death. His sentence is scheduled to be carried out today, but Obama is seeking to block the execution and submit the courts of Texas to the World Court and the United Nations. Senate candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) had previously successfully represented Texas at the U.S. Supreme Court on a similar issue, and posted a statement on his campaign website in defense of Texas and American sovereignty:

- A friend of mine who lives in Washington, D.C., Kevin Eder, is even more of a Twitter-holic than I am, if you can believe it. Kevin frequently will send out tweets posing hypothetical, taunting questions to liberal politicians and media outlets.

The conservative blogosphere has taken notice:
I spoke to Kevin last night, and he had this to say about the whole kerfuffle: "I don't think Jesse Lee is a bully, but I'm not sure what they're trying to accomplish with this effort. They're emboldening their opponents."
