Business insider has more:

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) announced on twitter today he will not seek reelection to the House of Representatives next year to focus on his Presidential campaign.

“I felt it was better that I concentrate on one election,” Paul told TheFacts.com. “It’s about that time when I should change tactics.”

Paul said his campaign is stronger this year than in 2008, when he picked up 35 delegates before the Republican National Convention.

“We have a lot more support right now,” he said. “Things are doing well for us.”

The outspoken libertarian said leaving the House does not mean he will stop pushing for smaller government and ending America’s involvement overseas — even if he doesn’t win the GOP nomination.

“I have been talking about this for years,” he told the website. “I will always be doing that. But not in the U.S. Congress.”

    Obama Admin: Fighting Terrorism but Supporting Terrorists?

    News recently emerged that “the Obama administration is imposing sanctions on an Egypt-based group that has claimed responsibility for attacks against Egyptian officials, Israeli interests and foreign tourists in Cairo and the Sinai peninsula. The State Department said Wednesday [4/9/14] it has designated Ansar Bayt al-Muqadis a ‘foreign terrorist organization.’”

    While ostensibly a laudable move, some—many in Egypt—think this announcement is a ruse to portray the Obama administration as committed to combating terrorism, even as it supports the head of the terrorist-snake, the Muslim Brotherhood.

    For instance, according to Mustafa Zayid, the Coordinator of the Sufi Coalition Forces in Egypt,

    Christian Publisher Plans Pro-’Gay’ Book, Employees ‘Under Threat’

    Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?

    The book’s author, Matthew Vines, is a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist known for manipulating Christian terminology to advance the counter-Christian homosexualist agenda.

    Despite his frequent use of a Christian-like lexicon, Vines surprisingly admits to running an apostate enterprise that he calls The Reformation Project. An unabashed denier of Biblical teaching on sexual morality, Vines has publicly acknowledged that his goal is to “reform church teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity.” The book is scheduled to be published on April 22, 2014.

    How The ‘Gay’ Jihad Normalized A Filthy Practice

    The public career beheading of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich at the hands of pagan sexual jihadists, coupled with an escalating epidemic of Christian business owners facing harsh government persecution for merely living out their faith, has startled awake an America lulled to sleep by the left’s intentionally deceptive, yet oh-so-sweet sounding serenade of “equality, tolerance and diversity.”

    Average folks have finally begun to recognize that America’s “progressive” power class of cultural Marxists and left-wing statists really intends, and always has, to subjugate ideological dissenters through abject inequality and intolerance, while demanding blind obedience to an anti-Christian, sexual-anarchist, socio-political agenda.

    Judge To Christians: Celebrate Gay Weddings Or Go To Jail

    An administrative judge has ruled Christians must now celebrate sodomy, or face jail.

    Spreading “civil rights commissions” in most cities and states are turning toward anti-Christian persecution, when Democrats and Judges rule that homosexual “rights” take precedence over Religious Freedom to opt out.

    Such was the case last week, when a pro-gay Judge in Colorado supported a pro-gay “rights” commission to enforce a Democrat non-discrimination law that openly punishes Christians.

    Jack Phillips, a Christian baker, was deemed to have no First Amendment protections, no right to protest, no free speech, no freedom of religion. Instead he was warned by Judge Robert N. Spencer that he must personally help celebrate homosexual “wedding” ceremonies or face $500 fines per future incident or jail.

    Why A Republican Governor Vetoed Religious Freedom

    Before the Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (RINO-AZ) vetoed a religious freedom bill that would have protected Christian business owners, she was warned not to embrace the homosexual agenda by nearly a dozen law professors.

    “Nearly a dozen leading law professors from Harvard, Stanford, George Mason, Notre Dame and other top institutions across America have endorsed the controversial legislation in Arizona that would strengthen the state’s religious-rights standards,” reports WND.

    The bill has been egregiously misrepresented by many of its critics,” the professors said in a letter to Brewer. “We write because we believe that you should make your decision on the basis of accurate information.
