HOUSTON, Texas–Militia groups in Texas and across the nation are responding to the Texas Border Surge announced Wednesday night by the offices of the Governor, Lt. Governor and Texas House Speaker. An announcement was made on several new media outlets including Facebook.
The alert to the civilian militia groups, which includes many groups who showed up at the Clive Bundy ranch in Nevada, calls on all able bodied militia members to converge on the Laredo sector of the Texas/Mexico border. A man who identified himself on a national conference call as “Ruthless” said their objective it to “put up a man-fence” to prevent the illegal aliens from crossing the border in their area of control.
Following is the text of the actual alert which was published on FreeRepublic.com and several other locations:

BOSTON, March 30 (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama praised the late Edward Kennedy on Monday at the opening of a Senate chamber replica built in his honor, calling the former Democratic Senator for Massachusetts an inspired leader who bridged the bipartisan divide.
“Now, since this is a joyous occasion, this is not the time for me to suggest a slew of new ideas for reform. Although I do have some,” Obama said at the ceremony in Boston. “What if we carried ourselves more like Ted Kennedy?”
Obama was one of several speakers to praise “the lion of the Senate” at the inauguration of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, including Vice President Joe Biden, former U.S. Republican Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, and members of the Kennedy family.
The centerpiece of the non-profit institute is a full-scale replica of the U.S. Senate chamber. Groups of middle and high school students will assemble in the roughly $79 million virtual Senate, located on the University of Massachusetts campus in Boston, using high-tech applications to act out the law-making process.
Carafem is a new kind of abortion clinic offering women a “spa-like” experience.
Beginning this week, clients will be welcomed with hot tea and comfy robes in the clinic, which features wood floors, plush upholstery and natural wood tones, so it resembles a high-end salon or spa.
“It was important for us to try to present an upgraded, almost spa-like feel,” Melissa Grant, vice president of health services for the clinic, told The Washington Post.
For $400, women will receive counseling and basic tests, then take an initial pill, before returning home with a second set of pills to induce the abortion the next day. The goal is to have them in and out in an hour. Like a typical salon or spa, women can schedule weekend and evening appointments online, or by calling a 24 hour hotline.
Typical pharmaceutical abortions cost $500, but Carafem is able to offer a cheaper rate because it will not provide surgical abortions or any abortion after the mother is 10 weeks along.

A nonprofit advocacy group that supports former death-row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal reported that he had been hospitalized Monday afternoon.
Prison Radio, which distributes recordings made by Abu-Jamal in prison, said the 60-year-old had been transported from the State Correctional Institution at Mahanoy in Schuylkill County at 1 p.m. to the intensive care unit at Schuylkill Medical Center.
A former Department of Justice prosecutor, now heading a public-interest watchdog group, filed a RICO-related civil lawsuit against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton and their lucrative family foundation. The lawsuit filed on March 24 before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida alleges that the Clintons and their foundation committed criminal violations under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
The attorney, Larry Klayman, reported that the RICO lawsuit accuses the Clintons of engaging in a criminal enterprise during the last 10 years with the goal of enriching themselves personally. Klayman and his organization Freedom Watch alleges that the Clintons — through mail and wire fraud, and various fraudulent statements — misappropriated government documents to which Klayman and Freedom Watch were lawfully entitled to receive and possess under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Specifically, the documents sought involve allegations that Hillary Clinton released Israeli war and cyber-warfare plans and practices.
Klayman’s complaint accuses then Secretary Hillary Clinton of being behind the release of documents to a reporter in order to thwart Israel’s secret military plans to preemptively attack Iranian nuclear sites to stop the Islamic nation’s march to producing atomic weapons. Another Klayman/Freedom Watch FOIA request was submitted for Mrs. Clinton’s and her underling’s records linked in any way to the “granting of waivers for persons, companies, countries and other interests to do business with Iran. In essence, they allegation is that Hillary Clinton knowingly undermined U.S. economic sanctions on the terrorist-sponsoring, nuclear-weapons-seeking nation of Iran.
Klayman alleges that these acts are the result of the Clintons and their foundation “selling government influence in exchange for bribes from interests which have donated to The Clinton Foundation.” It’s also alleged that the Clintons were paid exorbitant speaking fees and money was transferred to them by other means.
