  • Here’s Ted Cruz’s full statement on the Planned Parenthood shootings (Video)

    The Right Scoop ^ | Nov 30, 2015
    The media is reporting today that Ted Cruz has called the Planned Parenthood shooter a ‘transgender leftist’, but that’s not what he said at all. He was simply pointing to the fact that we don’t have enough information about the shooter to make a decision, and referenced our report that the shooter had been registered as a female on his voting record after the news reporter said it was reported that the shooter said ‘no more baby parts’. He wasn’t calling the shooter a transgender leftist, just saying there are reports suggesting it.Watch:Ted Cruz's Remark (Video)

The article is headlined, Ted Cruz cites reports that Planned Parenthood shooter could be ‘transgendered leftist activist.' What? The article reports that, "on one side," a representative of Planned Parenthood blamed the shooting on hateful rhetoric from the right, and then cites Cruz's statement, "on the other."

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says widespread race protests at American colleges and universities are being carried out by "leftist, coddled kids" with "trust funds.""We're seeing universities all across this country with leftist, coddled kids - usually with trust funds - protesting against horrible aggression, because the micro-aggression [of] 'I heard a word that scared me,' " Cruz said at the Presidential Family Forum in Iowa on Friday, according to the Des Moines Register.

    Oslo's new leftist city council said on Monday that it wanted to ban private cars from the downtown area by 2019 as part of a plan to slash greenhouse gas emissions by half. The plan was laid out by the Labour Party and its allies the Socialist Left and the Green Party, who won the September 14 municipal elections in the Norwegian capital. The programme envisages a ban on private vehicles in the city centre which, according to the Verdans Gang newspaper, is home to only about 1,000 people but where some 90,000 work.

    Social justice warriors believe in an extreme left-wing ideology that combines feminism, progressivism, and political correctness into a totalitarian system that attempts to censor speech and promote fringe lifestyles while actively discriminating against men, particularly white men. They are the internet activist arm of Western progressivism that acts as a vigilante group to ensure compliance and homogeny of far left thought. The true definition of SJW is up for debate, but most generally it has become a catch-all term that describes feminists and liberals who actively try to solve the perceived social injustices of modern society by organizing in online...

    This past week, one of the greatest differences between the Left and Right -- both around the world and in America -- once again came to light: how each views America. Every year for the past 67 years, the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner has been the major fundraising event for the Connecticut State Democratic Party. Not anymore. The party unanimously voted to drop the two Democratic presidents' names because they were slaveholders. That is the way the Left sees American history. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, the document that articulated the principle of human rights endowed by the Creator (thereby...

    If Governor Nikki Haley thinks that removing a flag from a capitol building will do anything to alleviate the racial hatred fomented by Barack Obama over the past several years, and the Left throughout the country's history, she is sadly mistaken. Not only Governor Haley, but every conservative thinker who follows her lead have fallen into the web of deceit that the Left always uses to entrap the gullible. I recall over the years having seen white supremacists with American flags flying. Their position is that America is being taken away from them by foreigners and people who had no...

    There is already a rush to call Dylann Roofs murder of nine black churchgoers in Charleston an act of domestic terrorism. This is a deliberate political strategy, intended by its ultra-liberal authors to transform this terrible tragedy into an indictment of American conservatism. Terrorism is a slippery term to define. Under U.S. law, terrorism is defined as "the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives. This is a perfectly good legal definition for the lawyers, but it...

    For decades, Gustavo Gutirrez, a Peruvian theologian and Dominican priest, was treated with suspicion and even contempt by the Vaticans hierarchy, which saw him as a dangerous Marxist firebrand who used faith as an instrument of revolution. Gutirrez was the founder of a progressive movement within the Catholic church known as liberation theology, and while he was never censured in the manner that some of his philosophical compatriots were, there were often rumblings that Gutirrez was being investigated by Pope John Paul IIs doctrinal czar, a German cardinal named Joseph Ratzinger who would later become Pope Benedict.

He was, of course, required to repent the error, calling it a terrible mistake to actually talk to a politician who disagrees with him...

    We live in a constitutional republic in which our elected officials are bound by the constraints of the Constitution, which means they don't have a license to do whatever they please, even if they think it would be best for the country. That President Barack Obama so flagrantly violates this enshrined legal principle and much of his Democratic Party supports him in doing so is why so many other people are outraged and, at times, fear for their country. Under past presidents in my lifetime (I was born after FDR), Republican and Democratic, we have not had to live in...

    “Universal voting would counteract money more than anything,” makes as much sense as anything else Obama has said. The idea that people utilizing their freedom of association to pool resources in order to influence politics is somehow corruptive of the political process stems from the unspoken idea that the country is one big commons owned collectively by us all and the government's purpose is to decide how to fairly allocate the commons. In an actual free country there is no such problem. The country isn't one big socialized commons. But in a socialized country where the presumption is that everything...

    Tony Auth, 72, of Wynnewood, the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and mainstay of The Inquirer's editorial page for four decades before resigning in 2012 to become a digital artist, has died. Mr. Auth had been under treatment for metastatic brain cancer. David Leopold, his friend and curator, said he died at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania on Sunday, Sept. 14, four days after his supporters announced a fundraising effort for an archive devoted to his work at Temple University. Mr. Auth's remarkable career began in 1971 when the fledgling artist from California flew in to Philadelphia to interview for...

    There are some aspects of Modern Leftism that have evolved from the Divine Right of Kings -- particularly amongst the elites. Divine Right holds that one is born into a class of the wealthy and powerful due to the Will of the Almighty. Aristocrats-by-birth in agrarian medievalist Europe justified their relative wealth in those terms. So those who have economic success and political influence are so because they have been Chosen while the rest are by definition inferior in Divine blessing in their earthly poverty. Left to their own devices, those born poor would destroy themselves and thus need to...

    Huff Posts Ryan Reilly recently had problems telling the difference between earplugs and rubber bullets. He also has long struggled with telling the difference between fact and fiction. Reilly was recently arrested covering the mob violence in Ferguson, Missouri. He described the loss of his cell phone and communication devices incident to his arrest as dehumanizing, which gives you a sense of his priorities I suppose. But Reillys clownish debut on the national stage isnt news to anyone who has followed his checkered history as a reporter. Reilly formerly worked for a privately owned website that served as a Department...

    Leftist Israeli author A.B. Yehoshua is saying that Israel should not refer to Hamas as a terrorist organization but as an enemy. In an opinion piece published in the New Republic magazine, Yehoshua wrote that Israel should give Hamas the status of a legitimate enemy. What accounts for the fact that, after the retreat of Israel from the Gaza Strip, the departure from Israeli settlements and the transfer of authority to Hamas, we continue to characterize Gaza as a terrorist state rather than as an enemy? he wrote. Is it that the expression a regime of terror is a stronger...

    College campuses in America are frequently teeming with all manner of liberals and trustafarian socialists who drive Volvos . Some of these schools are worse than others. Some are just egregiously awful.Here, The Daily Caller presents the 2014 rankings for the most annoying, rabidly politically correct, dirty-hippie, tree-hugging colleges and universities across the fruited plain. You have been warned. Swarthmore College in the suburbs of Philadelphia is a leftist hothouse full of wealthy white kids.

    Pathetic McD video at link. (CNSNews.com)- Speaking at an event hosted by the Physicians for a National Health Program - Western Washington last month, Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said the Affordable Care Act was "in the 'trying everything else' phase," and compared those who supported it to the Normandy invasion during Operation Overlord. "Winston Churchill once said you can count on Americans doing the right thing, but only after theyve tried everything else, and we are presently in the 'trying everything else' phase," McDermott said, speaking at the PNHPWW annual meeting entitled, "Health Care is a Human Right: Making it...

    Friend, Add your name today! I was very troubled by the Supreme Courts recent decision in the Hobby Lobby case. The idea that for-profit corporations can stand in the way of employees accessing basic health care is outrageous. Thats why Im supporting legislation that would reverse the negative consequences of the Hobby Lobby case. But its going to take all of us working together to ensure it passes. Will you join me in calling on Congress to undo the effects of the Hobby Lobby decision? Let me be very clear: a woman should be trusted to make her own healthcare...

    One of the current liberal cliches tells us whites are privileged. The color of their skin evidently bestows benefits others do not receive. They are therefore supposed to be grateful and defer to those who are less fortunate. But in what does this privilege consist? Yes, whites have not been discriminated against the way African-Americans have. They have not been denied jobs or forced to drink from separate fountains because of the pigmentation of their epidermis. This is surely an advantage but how big an advantage? Charges of white privilege make it sound as if every Caucasian is automatically...

    The Masters attained self awareness in the first years of the 21st century. Decades of the efforts of the ones who had gone before had borne fruit, and the transformation had begun. As planned, the plague that was Political Correctness had run amok in the land, and they had decided that sufficient numbers of the people were willing to abandon their heritage of Freedom, yielding to the plans of those who now had seized power. Clamoring for gifts of entitlements from the Nation's treasure, they had shown their willingness to subordinate themselves to the government's rule. For years the Masters...
