  • CarsonGate Cover-Up: CNN Fact-Checker Lies About Ted Cruz

    Breitbart ^ | February 8 , 2016 | JOHN NOLTE
    CNN is not only desperate to absolve itself of its legitimate responsibility for spreading the false idea that Dr. Ben Carson was dropping out of the presidential race last week, CNN is also hoping to complete a three-bank shot that will damage Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the process. Saturday night, CNN went so far as to have their phony left-wing "fact-checker" Tom Foreman lie about Cruz. For all of this to make sense, let's start at the beginning...

    When Governor Jeb Bush Ordered The Jack Boots To Action... Former Governor Jeb Bush has a much more serious eminent domain problem to reconcile than current media reports are discussing. During his tenure as Florida Governor Bush initiated the largest eminent domain private property confiscation in the history of the Sunshine State. Bush's action is now costing the State of Florida hundreds of millions in lawsuits and legal fees. During a period from mid-2000 to January 2006 the Florida Department of Agriculture, at the direction of Governor Jeb Bush, began a program to seize and destroy citrus trees from Florida...

    Peterborough, New Hampshire (CNN)Ted Cruz told a New Hampshire audience Sunday that requiring women to sign up for the draft is "nuts," breaking with the views of several Republican presidential rivals. Two days before the New Hampshire primary Cruz veered off his stump speech to blast his GOP competitors on the issue, which came up at the ABC debate Saturday. Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie all said or suggested they'd support women being required to enroll in Selective Service and be eligible for the draft, since female service members can now serve in combat roles.

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- The New Hampshire primary is less than four days away, but the Cruz campaign is already ramping up volunteer organizing efforts in South Carolina. The campaign on Saturday sent an email asking supporters to join a "strike force" to deploy to South Carolina and aid get-out-the-vote operations, with housing provided in Greenville, S.C. -- the third "Camp Cruz" lodging operation to open, following those based in Des Moines and Manchester. Cruz sees friendlier territory in evangelical-dominated South Carolina than he does here in more moderate New Hampshire, and made it a point to stop in Greenville Tuesday...

    Marco Rubio is often compared to Barack Obama on the campaign trail, and he's quick to refute questions over their comparable inexperience before running for president. But there's at least one way the senator from Florida draws his own comparison to Obama - if only to pledge he'll score the big wins for conservatives that Obama did for liberals. "Barack Obama has been the most consequential liberal president since Franklin Roosevelt," Rubio told NBC News' Gabe Gutierrez in a sit-down interview aboard his campaign bus in New Hampshire. Rubio doesn't believe Obama's accomplishments have been good for the country: He...

    Those who think Sen. Ted Cruz can be elected to a job he isn’t eligible for are ignoring the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. If Republicans make the mistake of nominating Cruz for President of the United States, Democrats in California and other states will challenge his eligibility. There’s at least a 90% probability the 9th Circuit Court in San Francisco would rule him ineligible because he is a naturalized citizen rather than a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution.

    Michigan’s March 8 Republican presidential primary is fast approaching. In fact, absentee voter ballots for the primary have been available since Jan. 23. A full slate of 13 active GOP presidential candidates will be on the ballot. The number of GOP delegates at stake is 58, which will be distributed based on the number of votes each candidate receives. For the first time in years, Michigan Democrats will hold a presidential primary on the same day, rather than the closed caucuses they have traditionally used. Democratic primaries are often a source of political drama, but this year’s Republican primary is...

    Stand up moment for Bernie Sanders. Sanders briefly halted a campaign event in New Hampshire Thursday to try to help a man who collapsed on stage. "Oh my God," Sanders said when the man fell just after the Democratic presidential candidate was taking a question in Concord about the schedule of debates. The scary thump could be heard on video that captured the moment. Sanders waited near the man until he was helped off the stage about a minute later. The specifics of why the man had collapsed and his condition after walking away were not immediately clear. The man...

    A Midway businessman is facing charges under Utah's commercial terrorism statute after investigators say he took scores of free tourism brochures out of stands owned by a competitor and replaced them with his own brochures. Scott Jay Eckersley is charged in 4th District Court with four counts of commercial obstruction, a second-degree felony. Wasatch County prosecutor Mckay King said the charges are appropriate, based on the allegations against Eckersley. Over the past year, Eckersley went to the Zermatt Resort & Spa in Midway four times and "totally cleaned out" a competitor's display of free tourism brochures, according to Wasatch County...

    As speaker of the Florida House of Representatives in 2008, Marco Rubio helped pass a sweeping energy bill - backed by a number of environmentalists - that seemed to reflect a bipartisan interest in renewable energy, climate change and the environment. Rubio's positioning on environmental issues has inarguably changed as he evolved from local Republican legislator to high-profile U.S. senator and, now, presidential candidate. "This nation and ultimately the world is headed for an emissions tax and energy diversification," Rubio told the Legislature. "Those changes will require technological advances that make those measures cost effective. The demand for such advances...

    It's disheartening that an avowed socialist is a viable candidate for president of the United States. Socialism is a dead end. For hundreds of years, it has failed everywhere it's been adopted. The enthusiasm of our youth for the candidacy of Bernie Sanders is a symptom of our failure to educate them, not only in history, government and economics, but also basic morality. You don't have to be a student of ancient history to know socialism doesn't work. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989 was an unequivocal demonstration of the moral and economic superiority of capitalism. The misery...

    Trump’s whole campaign was based on success breeding success, the citing of self-referential poll victories to justify his own candidacy. What happened in Iowa was that some version of normalcy returned to the G.O.P. race. The precedents of history have not been rendered irrelevant. Ted Cruz picked up the voters who propelled Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee to victory in previous caucuses. His is a Tea Party wing in the G.O.P. But its size and geographic reach is limited. The amazing surge for Marco Rubio shows that the Republican electorate has not gone collectively insane. At the last moment, and...

Basing his opinion on PredictWise.com, which tracks political prediction markets where traders bet on who will win, Wolfers says Trump leads with 51 percent, followed by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida with 33 percent. Much farther behind are Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas in...

    While campaigns nationwide are hysterically ramping up their “get out the vote” (GOTV) efforts, Democrats are banking on a strategy that worked for them in 2012, hoping it will give them an edge and allow them to eke out some victories. Democrats in North Carolina are mailing a variety of letters to voters designed to get them to the polls – a “voter-shaming” tactic, as described by Rush Limbaugh. One type of letter is a personalized report card about the recipient’s voting history, which is then compared to the voting histories of others in his/her neighborhood or community

    Lastly, the sudden embrace of Trump by GOP establishment members in an attempt to knock out their real nemesis, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), has got to force Trump voters to take pause. The GOP gambit is to knock off Cruz in Iowa because his voters go disproportionately to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). Trump's voters, on the other hand, tend to go to Cruz. So, beating Cruz would boost the establishment's favored alternative, and in classic "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" fashion, they are pumping up Trump.

On Wednesday night, he was among hundreds of others at a Cruz rally here to promote Cruz's campaign and oppose abortion."Over the years I've grown more conservative," Howard told CNN after the event.

    "The reasons you supported me eight years ago, I've not changed one position. You don't have video of me saying two different things. You don't have video of me saying something different in Marshalltown Iowa than I said in Manhattan. If I said it in Washington, I said it in Waukee (Iowa)
