  • Donald Trumps HUGE admiration for Globalists

    Trevor Louden ^ | April 9, 2016 | Renee Nal
    Many Trump enthusiasts cite Heidi Cruzs stint with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), where she advocated for the private sector, as an indication that presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz is a globalist. If Heidi Cruzs connection to the CFR makes Ted Cruz a globalist (despite Cruzs extensive record of aggressively defending U.S. sovereignty), any thinking Trump supporter would also want to take into account presidential candidate Donald Trumps repeated and vocal admiration for CFR President Richard Haass. During the GOP debate in Detroit on March 3, Fox News anchor Bret Baier asked Donald Trump for two or three names...
  • Four Reasons Republicans Should Rejoice at Cruz Beating Trump

    PJ Media ^ | April 8, 2016 | T. Elliot Gaiser
    When a political party picks one candidate over another, the party signals to the broader electorate what it represents. If the Republican Party nominates Ted Cruz instead of Donald Trump, it will represent one of the greatest practical and moral victories in the Republican Partys noble history. Cruzs enormous victory in Wisconsin this week makes it more probable than not that Donald Trump falls short of the required 1,237 delegates 50 percent plus one of the 2,472 total delegates to the convention to cinch the nomination on the first ballot. Combined with savvy delegate recruitment and a mounting...

    The Reverend Franklin Graham urged his fellow Christians to vote in November, even if they have to choose between two "heathen" candidates. Son of the Reverend Billy Graham and president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Graham has taken on much of his father's mantle in the evangelical community. In an interview with CBN in Denver this week, Graham stressed the importance of voting for all Christians. I don't care who wins and who's out there, you have to vote. And I'm not going to tell people who to vote for, I'm not going to do that --...

    There are quite a few rumors floating around in social media about Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz. Americans are used to the mainstream media lying about Ted Cruz (see here, here & here for just some examples.) But it is particularly painful when the lies come from supposed truth-tellers. The largest culprits starting and perpetuating anti-Cruz falsehoods are sundance of the Conservative Treehouse and Dianne Marshall of the Marshall Report. They blatantly lie, or tell cherry-picked half truths, which are promptly disseminated in social media by an army of bullies who are seemingly not interested in civil debate. Why create false...

    There are lots of political machinations going on with the GOP presidential primary. Word is that former Florida Governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush will be meeting with remaining candidates Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and John Kasich. We know Neil Bush is a Cruz campaign finance committeeman. And after what can only be referred to as poor performances this past Tuesday, I surmise there are growing behind-the-scenes calls for Rubio and Kasich to exit. Man, there are probably some serious Godfather-type discussions going on. Heres whats at risk. If Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Ohio Governor John Kasich remain in...

    This story has been updated. It was one of Donald Trumps first powerful endorsements: Jerry Falwell Jr., who testified for many evangelical Christians that despite leading a life of excess, the thrice-married, trash-talking mogul was indeed a God-fearing president-in-waiting. But Falwells plunge into presidential politics did not sit so well with intimates of his late father, Jerry Falwell Sr., nor with some at Liberty University, the Christian college in Virginia founded by the elder Falwell and now led by his son. Mark DeMoss, who for many years served as chief of staff to Falwell Sr. and considered the televangelist a...

    Not only has Trump funded open borders politicians like Schumer, Durbin, McCain, Graham and Menendez, but hes also been bailed out by George Soros. Trump actually spent Christmas Eve with George Soros in 2009, according to the New York Post. But hey, billionaires gotta stick together, you know? Nevermind that Soros is for a One World Order, an anti-Zionist and an anti-constitutional funder of all things unholy. The funder of all things unholy also funded the Trump Tower in Chicago.

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Texas Senator Ted Cruz said the upcoming presidential election is now more important than ever when it comes to defending the Bill of Rights. Cruz was in Virginia Beach, Va., at Regent University's Presidential Candidate Forum courting evangelicals ahead of Super Tuesday, March 1. "Just a few days ago I attended Justice Scalia's funeral. And his passing underscores that the stakes of this presidential election are not just one, but two branches of government," Cruz noted.

  • Why Max Lucado Broke His Political Silence for Trump

    Christianity Today ^ | Feb 26, 206 | Richard Clark
    Max Lucado is a pastor in San Antonio and a bestselling author of 32 books including the most recent Glory Days. In a 2004 piece, Christianity Today dubbed Max Lucado “America’s Pastor,” alluding to his broad appeal to mainstream Americans. Part of that appeal can be attributed to his approach to politics: typically, he stays out of it. He never endorsed or opposed a presidential candidate. Then Trump happened. In a recent blog post, Max Lucado chose to speak out against what he calls Trump’s “antics,” insisting that, “such insensitivities wouldn’t even be acceptable even for a middle school student...

    A recent story from National Review made headlines by suggesting that some of Sen. Ted Cruz’s heaviest backers were beginning to court the Rubio campaign about switching their endorsements. The evangelical leaders quoted in the National Review story were quick to denounce these rumors as baseless. Several of these men, members of “the GROUP,” gave statements to Conservative HQ reiterating their loyalty to the Cruz campaign. Richard Viguerie: “The idea that conservatives will shift their support from Cruz to Rubio is preposterous given Marco Rubio’s many betrayals of the conservative movement going back to when he served in the Florida...

    On the campaign trail, Senator Marco Rubio has been pushing a media narrative that he is the most “serious” foreign policy candidate. It’s an odd position since he missed all but one of the 19 votes connected to the National Defense Authorization Act last year! But far more damaging than his missed votes is his inability to learn from our past national security mistakes. Whether it’s Libya, border security, or major security gaps in our visa and refugee programs, when he has voted, it’s often on the side of misplaced liberal ideals and illegal immigrants instead of America’s One disturbing...

As Breitbart News has previously reported, Rubio has been Congress’s biggest champion of Rupert Murdoch’s open borders advocacy efforts. Trump explained that Fox News has “protected” Rubio — constantly buoying his campaign, even as he has continued to perform dismally. “They’re in love with Rubio. Why? I have no idea, but they’re in love with Rubio,” Trump declared on Thursday’s program of Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM Patriot 125. “They are in love with Rubio...

In the comfort of my cozy abode, I called about 95 residences in the Texas area likely to come out and vote for Ted Cruz. Many were not home, or did not answer. I contacted around 55 total people, a few in the same household. Did I take perfect notes? No. These numbers are based on crude tally-marking on a sheet of note paper. It was actually kind of fun; most of all, I felt like I was making a difference....

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz may not have the best rapport with the Latino community, but on Thursday he received a key endorsement from a member of the community.

In his endorsement, the Puerto Rican-born lawmaker called Cruz “a stalwart defender of the constitution and a tireless advocate for conservative principles.” “Americans know Washington is broken,” Labrador said in a press release. “Ted Cruz is the only candidate that will truly change the way Washington works, restore the balance of power between the presidency...

After he was asked about the Gang of Eight bill, Sessions said that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% , along with him and others, opposed the bill, and offered amendments to try and kill the bill. He added that Cruz was effective in lobbying members of the House against the bill. Sessions further stated that he doesn’t remember Rubio’s recollection that the House was going to improve the Gang...

    mid the petty bickering, loud rhetoric, and sordid attack ads in this year’s primary election campaigns, the death of a giant — Justice Antonin Scalia — suddenly overshadows all of that. The vacancy created on the Supreme Court makes painfully clear the huge stakes involved when we choose a president of the United States, just one of whose many powers is the power to nominate justices of the Supreme Court. Justice Scalia’s passing would be a great loss at any time. But at this crucial juncture in the history of the nation — with 5–4 Supreme Court decisions determining what...

    After watching yesterday's debate I finally came to a realization about Sen. Rubio- I don't like him very much. Even from the start, when I supported him, there was just something about him that rubbed me the wrong way, but I couldn't put my finger on it. So I ignored that sense of unease and focused on his good qualities- his eloquence, ability to articulate conservative principles, and dedication to Christian and pro-life values. But over time that initial sense of unease I had about him started to be vindicated. It was confirmed by various articles I read about him,...

    Going into tonight’s debate, Donald Trump holds a commanding double digit lead over Ted Cruz, and of course all the other GOP candidates. If he continues this pace, he will most certainly be the Republican nominee for president. But that’s actually not the most important victory. The most important win comes in November, when America actually votes for the next president of the United States. And to ensure we don’t have another four years of damaging progressive leftist leadership, we need to defeat the Democrat candidate. The problem is, according to polls right now, at this moment, Trump ain’t that...

The conference call came as the Huffington Post reported that a pro-Rubio super PAC had sent out a mailer in the state...

    Former Senator Trent Lott – who, as you might remember, walked into a political buzzsaw in 2002 over comments that effectively destroyed his Senate career – highly disapproves of this Senator Ted Cruz fellow. Not least because Senator Cruz said some awful, awful things about former Senator Lott’s good friend, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. It’s always interesting to see how a lobbyist defines ‘inappropriate behavior,’ really. Hoover up all the political pork you can? That’s Senatorial.

    The Washington Post’s one-man Fifth Column, Dana Milbank, is at it again. Apparently, he has been shadowing Ted Cruz’s campaign. Unable to come up with anything substantive, what he’s produced is one of the most juvenile screeds ever to appear in any major newspaper: "When Sen.

    With the first real votes being cast in the presidential race Monday, this is an opportune moment to do some last-minute comparison shopping on the candidates' tax reform plans. On this issue there's a lot to cheer about. All the Republican candidates have crafted plans that would slash tax rates for everyone and most would vastly simplify the thousands of pages of IRS tax code. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have endorsed flat-tax plans that, for full disclosure, were designed by Arthur Laffer and myself. These plans have drawn some criticism from the Right of late, though these attacks are...

    On Monday night, the Republican Party gave the first victory of 2016 to the first Hispanic candidate for president of the United States, Ted Cruz. Sen. Cruz won for many reasons: his outsider appeal, disciplined message, and sophisticated get-out-the-vote operation. But after two trips to Iowa to volunteer for Cruz, I noticed something else about the Cruz campaign that probably made a difference. I’ve worked on many campaigns. I started with George W. Bush’s 2004 campaign when I was 14, and I’ve volunteered at the grassroots level every year since. A wise mentor once told me the kind of organization...

    What you’ll find surprising about which 2016 presidential candidates have received the most money from each state is that Hillary Clinton dominates, and Dr. Ben Carson finishes second. Guess that’s not how Iowans see things. Check out this map… Kind of funny that LA Gov. Bobby Jindal, OH Gov. John Kasich, NJ Gov. Chris Christie, SC Sen. Lindsey Graham, and KY Sen. Rand Paul each received the most donations only from their home states, but it is what it is. Pretty surprising to see Hillary getting a bunch of cash from red states, though.

    You can feel it in the Republican Establishment, the sense that Sen. Marco Rubio’s solid third-place finish in Iowa is the moment the locusts cleared, the boils healed, the frogs jumped away, and the waters parted. Delivered into Sinai, Republicans of finer character got to watch as boorish Trumpites and the Cruzians were swallowed up at last by Nile. But in order to make it to the Promised Land, the Establishment still needs Rubio to win — or at least place a strong second — in New Hampshire. And for that, some spin of Biblical proportions will be necessary. Part...

    Just wanted to REMIND all that, just like the founder of this website, I believe the real enemy isn't Donald Trump (I am a Cruz supporter), nor should Ted Cruz be the real enemy for any Donald Trump supporter. The REAL ENEMY is THE ESTABLISHMENT AND SELLOUTS as embodied currently in Marco Rubio. Carry On..

    If the internecine warfare between the two top populist candidates continues, the conservative majority of the Republican Party could once again be forced to live with a nominee chosen by the Establishment. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump placed first and second in Iowa. But if they don’t now combine forces and put aside their rancor, they may each find themselves losing the nomination to the third-place finisher, Establishment favorite Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Entering New Hampshire, Cruz and Trump have to play it smart. Cruz must recognize that he needs Trump to win in the Granite State. If...
  • Marco Rubio's November Electability Problem

    There hasn’t been this much excitement in the luxury boxes since the 1991 Kentucky Derby when Mane Minister showed at 87-1. Marco Rubio’s expected third-place showing set off a frenzy of spin and sly promotion in the commentary class. The conventional wisdom is that Rubio is the more electable Republican in November as compared to Ted Cruz or Donald Trump. The conventional wisdom is wrong, just as it was in 2012 and 2008. Marco Rubio has two significant problems that render him a problematic November candidate. The first is his record on the most important issue of the year. The...

    WHY WE ENDORSED Endorsing a candidate for President is a serious thing, and, done properly, should be the result of extensive research and reflection. Making an endorsement on behalf of a large national organization that represents millions of supporters is an even more sensitive endeavor. Consequently, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, as a result of extensive polling and discussions with our Coordinators and supporters across the nation, enthusiastically endorses Senator Ted Cruz for President of the United States. WHY WE ENDORSED Endorsing a candidate for President is a serious thing, and, done properly, should be the result of extensive research...
  • Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse Responded To Donald Trump and It Was PERFECT

    Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is one of the best new Senators elected in 2014, and we at RedState were proud to support him in the primaries. After keeping a low profile his first few months in the Senate, the 43 year old freshman has gradually been building a higher profile as a conservative reformer, and has recently started grilling Donald Trump on Twitter. Today, Trump fired back - and Sasse responded in kind, giving The Donald a taste of his own medicine. Sasse started bearing down on Trump on Sunday, beginning by noting - as many elected Republicans have -...
  • Could a Wealthy Candidate Buy Endorsements and Support

    One of the interesting assumptions infecting this election season is that a self-funded wealthy candidate is less likely to make corrupt deals. If a candidate doesn't solicit money from the public (which, by the way, every candidate for president does), so the story goes, he won't be beholden to do favors. But what if a candidate had a ready reserve of millions? Could that candidate buy off media outlets, public figures and educational institutions? Answer: probably, if he knows how to do the deal. Expenditures on behalf of a campaign, of course, must be reported to the Federal Election Commission....
  • Another View -- Michael Reagan: Trump is no Reagan Republican

    New Hampshire Union Leader ^ | January 26, 2016 | Michael Reagan
    Mr. Trump, I knew Ronald Reagan. And you’re no Ronald Reagan! Of course, I am stealing that line — with a twist. Donald Trump shouldn’t mind. He’s been stealing my dad for his own purposes. Trump frequently invokes Ronald Reagan’s name to defend his sudden, 180-degree switch from being a life-long, pro-Clinton Democrat to a Reagan Republican. Both men did make a switch, but almost all the similarities between the two end there. Ronald Reagan’s odyssey from Hollywood liberal to conservative backer took place over almost two decades. Starting with his 1964 “Time for Choosing” speech that galvanized Americans for...
  • Trump’s Bread and Circuses … For the Elites

    PJ Media ^ | Jan 27, 2016 | T. Elliot Gaiser
    With less than a week to Iowa’s caucus, Donald Trump has convinced enough elected officials, insiders, and lobbyists to prefer him to Sen. Ted Cruz. A field of economics known as “public choice” explains why: Trump threatens their interests less than Cruz. Trump is the candidate of bread and circuses. His rallies feature immense crowds that show up to hear him insult, gloat, boast, growl, bark. Trump is spectacle by design. His campaign operation compares favorably to the French philosophy behind professional wrestling. The wealthy reality TV star rents movie theaters and entertains fans with a combination of ego and...
  • Cruz-Hating Republicans Need a Reality Check

    The Dallas Morning News ^ | January 25, 2016 | Ramesh Ponnuru
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity. This sound aphorism may have a less pithy political corollary: Never attribute to strategy what can be explained by emotion. Only this truth can help us understand why Republican officials have started saying they prefer Donald Trump to Senator Ted Cruz as their presidential nominee. Congressional Republicans would supposedly come out ahead with Trump because he would be a stronger nominee and a more cooperative president. These arguments are so weak that they can be understood only as rationalizations for a passionate hatred of Cruz felt by Republicans...
  • Trump Spokesman Flat out Lies about Trump’s Own Words

    Life as a Trump spokesperson has got to be a degrading existence. Your job, essentially, is to defend every public utterance of a guy who changes positions every half hour, but refuses to ever admit that he has ever been wrong. As the Right Scoop notes, part of the job description of being a Trump spokesman is literally believing that Donald Trump has never been wrong, even when Donald Trump disagrees with previous things Donald Trump has said. Supporters of other candidates do not have to do this. Rubio's supporters don't have to say that Rubio was never involved in...
