  • Will they Cruzify Ted?

    The Spectator ^ | 2/11/16 | David Flint
    The progressive elites will try to do to Cruz what they did to Abbott The American mainstream media, the Republican Party establishment and the Democratic Party are determined that Ted Cruz not be sworn in as the 45th president. Anyone with that opposition must be formidable. That he is. Campaigning against Federal ethanol subsidies in Iowa, a major corn producing state, and against all poll predictions, Cruz defeated the media's favourite, Donald Trump, receiving more votes than any Republican candidate ever had. Cruz is the candidate most motivated by his attachment to traditional American principles. For his opponents, these are...

    A pair of Texas litigators are following Cruz's lead as they gird for a Supreme Court battle this April. On the campaign trail, Ted Cruz has vowed to rescind President Barack Obama's controversial executive actions on immigration - but it's two of his former aides who could actually kill it. Scott Keller and Chip Roy - who served in top roles in Cruz's Senate office - are now litigators on behalf of Texas, leading the lawsuit against Obama's unilateral actions, which are at the cornerstone of the president's immigration legacy. The duo's positions also underscore Cruz's enduring influence and reach...

    In just the latest instance of taxpayer-funded censorship, students in one University of Florida course have been banned from using words such as "husband," "wife," "mom," or dad" in the classroom and risk losing points off their grade if they don't comply. In the syllabus for her "Creativity In Context" class -- a required course for any student pursuing a minor in Innovation -- UF professor Jennifer Lee informs students of her four paragraph long classroom "communications policy" that she says will enforce "ethical conduct" in the classroom. "The following policies and guidelines will be followed in this course,"...

    Jeb Bush admits that the reason he supported the Denver Broncos over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 was because Peyton Manning donated to his presidential campaign. Wednesday during a town hall event in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, Bush claimed, “And Peyton Manning in the NFL I guess is adult in the room, right? So I kind of like that position these days, I never thought I would be the adult in the room.” “Now we just saw the Super Bowl, I know that you all probably, maybe had some leanings to Carolina,” Bush said. “I was for Denver...

    Former president George W. Bush will join his brother former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in South Carolina to campaign. The two will focus on national security issues in the important Southern state. "They want a commander-in-chief that will have a steady hand and have a backbone and will support the troops and has detailed plans on how to keep us safe as it relates to Islamic terrorism," Jeb Bush said Wednesday on CNN's "New Day." "Here in South Carolina particularly that's an important issue."

    Republicans set a new turnout record Tuesday in New Hampshire’s primary, attracting more than a quarter of a million voters to the polls and offering evidence that most of the energy in the 2016 presidential race continues to be on the GOP side. Democrats saw a strong turnout, but their two-person race couldn’t recapture the magic of the 2008 battle between Hillary Clinton and then-candidate Barack Obama — a race that presaged Mr. Obama’s eventual cruise to victory in November.

    "This, more than his ideology, is why Trump genuinely scares me. There are places where I think his instincts are an improvement on the Republican field. He seems more dovish than neoconservatives like Marco Rubio, and less dismissive of the social safety net than libertarians like Rand Paul. But those candidates are checked by institutions and incentives that hold no sway over Trump; his temperament is so immature, his narcissism so clear, his political base so unique, his reactions so strange, that I honestly have no idea what he would do - or what he wouldn't do."

    A Planned Parenthood abortion facility, located on Havendale Blvd in Winter Haven, Florida, has closed its doors as of February 1, 2016. Situated inside Spring Lake Square, the Planned Parenthood sat among restaurants, a movie theater, and businesses that fill the earth-tone-colored suburban strip mall. Sidewalk Advocates for Life, which reported the closure, shared that this is the first abortion facility in the group’s short 22-month-history to shut down. The group encouraged its counselors to continue dedicating their time to counseling abortion-minded women, and to advocate on the sidewalks for the preborn.

Rubio is in second with 20 percent, followed by Ted Cruz at 12 percent and Ben Carson at 6 percent. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is fifth with 4 percent, according to the survey.

    Breitbart ^ | 2/10/16 | JOHN NOLTE
    Everything wrong with Jeb Bush can be summed up in his approach to border security and American sovereignty. As we all now know, the former Florida governor considers illegal immigration an "act of love" on the part of the illegal immigrant sneaking into America illegally. Wednesday morning on "Morning Joe," after barely getting out of New Hampshire alive, Bush repeatedly described frontrunner Donald Trump's proposed temporary ban on foreign Muslims as "horrific." You don't have to agree with the idea of Trump's temporary ban to see the benefits of such a thing, or why two-thirds of Republican voters in a...

    Can you believe this? One longtime Rubio supporter who backs Bush faulted Rubio’s campaign for the slip-up. He said they drove Rubio too hard and too long and he didn’t have enough sleep. In the days before New Hampshire primary, Rubio struggled to find his footing coming off as subdued and tired during some of his final campaign stops. Rubio also repeated himself, again, this time about family values in his last campaign rally in Nashua, N.H., before the primary. “It was the pace. He couldn’t keep up,” the source said. “And then they doubled-down on it – tripled and...

    -snip- Bush is a massive threat to Rubio now. Don't get me wrong - Jeb did not do particularly well in New Hampshire either. Fourth place is no great achievement, especially when you consider how much money Bush spent in order to turn in that mediocre finish. In the context of this bizarre race, however, Jeb did himself a lot of favors by finishing 0.5 percent ahead of Rubio. His campaign has been an expensive disappointment up to this point, but now he can make the pitch to wary donors and Republican establishment types that he stuck with it, fought...

    Jazzed by a fourth-place finish in the New Hampshire primary, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush opened his campaign for the next contest in South Carolina by taking repeated shots at front-runner Donald Trump. Mr. Bush accused the billionaire real estate mogul and reality TV star of being a divisive figure just like President Obama and slammed him for declaring bankruptcy four times for his business ventures. "I'm giving you a reality-based answer not a realty-TV answer," Mr. Bush told the crowd at a town hall in Bluffton, South Carolina, as he touted his record of cutting taxes, reining in spending...

But others had also spent time in the second place slot behind Trump, including former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina after her strong undercard debate performance in September; and Dr. Ben Carson, who was in second for much of the autumn, but finished in last place on Tuesday evening. What happened? A look at the RealClearPolitics averages allows us to pinpoint the exact moment when Carson began to fade, never to recover: Nov. 13, 2015....

    ... There is no other way to describe it: the Obama policy is to let the Russian/Iranian/Hezbollah axis take over Syria. That is what the current battle for Aleppo is all about. Times columnist Roger Cohen argues that "It is too late, as well as pure illusion, to expect significant change in Obama's Syria policy." But he proposes that Obama should at least increase the number of Syrian refugees taken in this year to 65,000, as opposed to his currently proposed 10,000. But letting in more refugees scares Americans who suspect that there will be terrorists among them. Such a...

    A Washington Post story last month revealing that Marco Rubio had been arrested after hours in a Brickell Park in 1990 quickly sparked far slimier allegations in the conservative Twittersphere: Namely, that the 18-year-old Rubio had actually been cruising for gay sex in the park with a good friend who later ran a notorious gay porn site. New Times ran down those rumors and found that, indeed, Rubio's childhood pal — a man named Angel Barrios — went on to become entangled in Miami's most notorious gay smut legal case. But that's where the rumor mongering and fact separated; there...

Joshua James, 24, was arrested Monday and charged with assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill after Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation officials said he threw a 3.5-foot alligator through a Palm Beach County Wendy's drive-thru window in October. He's also charged with illegally possessing an alligator and petty theft. Jail records show he was released on $6,000 bail Tuesday. He was ordered to have no contact with animals.

    The Kentucky senator, Rand Paul, who pulled out of the presidential race on Wednesday, had a slogan "Stand With Rand". But not enough people did. So he quit the field. Jeb Bush's campaign is winning even less support (he trailed well behind Rand Paul in Iowa), but he is not quitting. So perhaps his campaign should now carry the moniker "Ebb with Jeb", because while he is still in the race, it is reaching the lamentable stage. If this were a TV medical drama and not a political race, the scene that we would have played out is a bunch...

Until the release of the book, Liberty Defined, Dr. Paul had a mixed record in Congress and the fact that he had taken the NumbersUSA "No Amnesty" pledge at the end of his Presidential campaign in 2008.

That was before New Jersey Governor Chris Christie banged the Florida Senator up pretty good in Saturday's Republican debate. Brown called Rubio "brilliant," adding that he considered him a good friend, but felt the cage match with Christie really hurt him. Asked about Trump's "ground game," Brown said he was confident the businessman has a good one...

    Via the Daily Rushbo, that’s the second time in a week that Rush has given Rubio a vote of confidence at a moment when the rest of the field (Ted Cruz very much included) is desperate to blow him up. That feels strange after so many months of Limbaugh mainstreaming Trump on the right — as I said in last week’s post, it’s hard to be pro-Trump and pro-Rubio — but it makes sense strategically. If Rubio collapses, conservatives are left with Cruz and … that’s pretty much it, given that the other remaining survivors in the field are...

    On January 20, 2017, President Bernie Sanders was sworn into office. The elderly Vermont politician, who had always made waves, refused to use a bible, instead taking his oath on a smudged copy of his own economic five-year plan. He also unilaterally modified the presidential oath from "preserve, protect and defend" to "enhance, enrich and humanize the Constitution of the United States". The unlikely candidacy of Bernie Sanders had shocked and divided a party and then a nation. President Sanders won the Democratic Party nomination by going far to the left and then, defying conventional wisdom, he moved even further...

    THE population of nonreligious Americans -- including atheists, agnostics and those who call themselves "nothing in particular" -- stands at an all-time high this election year. Americans who say religion is not important in their lives and who do not belong to a religious group, according to Pew Research Center, have risen in numbers from an estimated 21 million in 2008 to more than 36 million now. Despite the extraordinary swiftness and magnitude of this shift, our political campaigns are still conducted as if all potential voters were among the faithful. The presumption is that candidates have everything to gain...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), now a Democratic presidential candidate, was slow to take seriously reports in 2014 of the use of fake wait lists by Department of Veterans Affairs employees. As the New York Times reported, Sanders, then chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, initially indicated that the controversy was being fueled by a partisan effort to undermine the government agency.Sanders defended the VA amid reports, which first came to light in April 2014, that staffers at the Phoenix VA hospital used secret wait lists to conceal the long periods of time that veterans were delayed before...

    Let us all hope the good people of New Hampshire spot the insufferable and poorly briefed politicians who want to lead the nation. In a recent South Carolina GOP debate Jeb Bush talked about trade with China and showed how much he relies on briefings by his team to create his talking points. Bush did not realize Boeing was moving a manufacturing plant to China, and with it American Jobs - SEE HERE Bush v Trump Similarly, last night in New Hampshire, to bolster his propositions about eminent domain, Governor Jeb Bush made the gobsmacking assertion the Keystone Pipeline project...

    Hope - and money - spring eternal for Jeb Bush, who isn't letting a lack of interested voters dampen his presidential aspirations. Sources close to the former Florida governor say that his sixth-place finish in the Iowa caucus was even worse than they were expecting, but they're vowing to take the buckets of cash their candidate has collected and win big in the Sunshine State. "Bush did another swing through Florida and raised $500,000 at four events," says an insider close to the GOP long shot. We're told that cash was collected over the course of six hours the week...

    PETERBOROUGH, N.H.-Ted Cruz on Sunday said he opposes requiring women to register for a potential draft, breaking with Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie, all of whom indicated support for opening up the Selective Service to women during Saturday night's debate. "I have to admit, as I was sitting there listening to that conversation, my reaction was, 'Are you guys nuts?'" Cruz said Sunday, speaking at a town hall here. "Listen, we have had enough with political correctness, especially in the military. Political correctness is dangerous. And the idea that we would draft our daughters to forcibly bring them...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” while discussing Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) performance at Saturday’s ABC News Republican presidential debate in which he repeated several times that President Barack Obama’s policies are no accident but instead he knows exactly what he is doing, MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews called it “strange” and said it was “not a human response.”
