2016: Cruz Expected to Get 'Hero's Welcome' in Iowa, New Hampshire
Breitbart ^ | 16 Feb 2014, 8:27 AM PDT | Tony Lee

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is expected to receive a "hero's welcome" when he travels to Iowa and New Hampshire in the coming months after he again stood up against the GOP establishment on the vote to raise the debt ceiling without any reductions in spending.

Conservative activists, according to the The Hill, are cheering Cruz for forcing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and others to vote to advance the legislation. 

On March 18, Cruz will keynote a Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators rally. On April 12, Cruz will attend the New Hampshire Freedom Summit, which is sponsored by Americans For Prosperity. Cruz is a potential 2016 presidential candidate and contender, and Iowa and New Hampshire host the country's first-in-the-nation caucuses and primary, respectively.

Steve Deace, an influential conservative talk radio host in Iowa, said that Cruz would receive a "tickertape parade" for standing up to the GOP establishment. He said, "At this point with grassroots conservatives around the country it’s a close vote between who they distrust the most, the president, [Speaker] John Boehner [R-OH] or Mitch McConnell."

Activists in New Hampshire noted that voters in the state are fiscally conservative and appreciate that Cruz is willing to fight to get America's fiscal house in order instead of just giving it lip service. 

Cruz has also gained favor with conservatives in both states because he led the charge against more gun control legislation and frustrated those in the GOP establishment that wanted to pass amnesty legislation by calling the "immigration principles" released by the House GOP leadership "amnesty." House Republican leaders were upset that Cruz helped put the breaks on amnesty legislation.

I think he would get the same in all but about 3 or 4 states.

He has to establish his contacts in those states in order to get momentum going and build his organization. It’s not at all too early.

“He has to establish his contacts in those states in order to get momentum going and build his organization. It’s not at all too early.”

He does indeed need to get momentum going—and he’s certainly making all the right moves. He’s going to have a huge ARMY OF DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS going into the 2016 primary season (which is really kicking off this year).

To: jazusamo; All

For reasons known only to Boehner, but appear to border on High Treason to the United States of America, Boehner as Speaker of the House, has failed his Constitutional Duty to begin Impeachment Proceedings on B. Hussein Obama.

Writing, reasoning or in any manner communicating with Obama will only increase his resolve that he is doing the correct Commie thing in his eyes and in the eyes of his former Pakistani Mentor and “bride.”

The Millions of Insured Americans that Obama has financially and medically damaged by Obamacare are just “Collateral Damage “ for the common Commie Good of The Utopian Society that will rise from the ashes of the America that Jarrett, Holder and Obama absolutely hate with every fiber of their sorry, sorry beings.

In Obama’s mind the Chinese and the Russians made mistakes with their brands of Communism, but the Commie Triangle of Jarrett—Holder—Obama will not make the same mistakes because he knows that he can do whatever he wants, and knows for certain THAT BOEHNER WILL NEVER RAISE A FINGER TO STOP HIM.

Thus to them, all is going well, ESPECIALLY if we complain, because they interpret our high level of pain as the correct pain of index necessary to achieve the death of the former America they hate.


In my humble, but USUALLY correct opinion, nothing will get better for us Americans until Boehner is removed as Speaker. His Constitutional Duty failure as Speaker borders on Treason.

Thus, our efforts should be directed at our Republican, Independent and Democrat, ( RID ), US House Representatives to DEMAND that Boehner Resign.

The pantywaist RINOs such as RINO Rep. Peter King of NY will run around with their hair on fire, screaming “THERE IS A SPLIT IN THE PARTY !”

Let them scream. I’m in this for my Children and Grandchildren, and I will NEVER put Party above Country EVER as their obsolete RINO screaming does.

For example, 3 days ago I asked my local RINOs secretary to send a letter to my un-named sorry RINO Rep requesting 3 things from him: 1.) Impeach Obama; 2.) Insist that Boehner Resign; and 3.) Support Trey Gowdy for Speaker Of The House.

Next week I will re-word, re-write and send it myself, by snail mail.

The next week, Registered Letter, etc.

My goal is a symbolic one: April 15, 2014 is the deadline for Boehner to become just another House Member from Ohio, and publicly stating to the Left Stream Media that he “wants to spend more time with his family.”

Remember this: A Dictator only has the power that the People give him.
