The results show that 83% say no, while only 17% say they want Cruz to use his political capital to help Trump.

    What ever happened to Little Ben Shapiro? The Daily Wires Ben used to be one of my conservative idols, battling against the name-calling, irrational social justice warriors and dropping conservative truth bombs. I looked up to him and believed in what he was doing. Not any more! Anyone who follows internet drama as closely as I do will have seen the change in Bens behavior. He used to be cool and sassy. People my age could relate to him. But he seems to have joined the anti-Trump Establishment conservative ranks and lost so much of what made him special to...

    There are several resident status classifications in the United States: natural born citizen, naturalized citizen, diplomatic immunity, temporary resident (on a visa), lawful permanent resident (green card holder), and illegal alien. Ted Cruz isn't the child of diplomats, and he was never naturalized as a citizen. So either he is an illegal alien or a natural born citizen. There is no middle ground. If you don't believe he is a natural born citizen, then you believe there is an illegal alien serving in the U.S. Senate. There is no middle ground. You should immediately call for his deportation.

    It saddens me greatly to say that Sarah Palin is wrong.

    Just four weeks from today, Iowans will cast the first official votes of the 2016 presidential election. And what was once a very crowded GOP field, with 17 people officially declaring their candidacies, is really down to only three potential scenarios. Let's assess the impact of each on the race going forward should it become a reality. Scenario #1-Ted Cruz Wins Convincingly And by convincingly, I mean with 35% or more, which only two Republicans have ever scored in Iowa's history (George W. Bush 2000 and Bob Dole 1988). With the combined strengths of his existing structure and the vocal...

Cruz has now received more than 670,000 donations from more than 320,000 donors, with the average donation only $67. Which means his donors are a renewable resource.We have never seen a principled conservative receive this kind of support. This is providential blessing kind of stuff.

    Conservative Review ^ | December 14th, 2015 | Steve Deace
    The Ted Cruz surge has officially arrived. Predictably, the same political class that previously didn’t give him any shot to win the nomination is now saying he’s “peaking too soon” or the “flavor of the month.” Here are five reasons why they’re wrong (as they almost always are). 1. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Iowa does not “break late.” Accounting for the upcoming holidays when most people tune out politics, there are about 40 days until Iowans vote in their first-in-the-nation caucuses. Cruz is now the leader in the Real Clear Politics polling average in Iowa. By that point in the...

Although I have met many wonderful people at those events, and received no shortage of inspiration from the speeches I have heard, there is also a shadow that looms over everything.

    At long last, George W. Bush, the man who left the Republican Party in tatters as he left the White House, has some coattails. His loose lips at a recent fundraiser last week about fellow Texan Ted Cruz have given the GOP presidential hopeful an invaluable shot of gravitas. And that’s saying something considering how Bush’s own brother, Jeb, has been running away from his family legacy by changing his surname to ‘exclamation point.’ But who wouldn’t rather declare punctuation as kin rather than a former claimant to the White House in this populist uprising disguised as an election?

    It seems to me the only principled reason to be a Republican would be to stop, thwart and defeat Leftist ideas youre opposed to. Therefore, what better standard by which to judge Republican presidential candidates than by who is the most committed to actually defeating the opposition? And who might that candidate be in 2016? Well, according to the man from whom much of todays conservative multimedia empire originates, that candidate is Ted Cruz. If youre looking for the Republican candidate who is the most steadfastly opposed to liberalism, whose agenda is oriented towards stopping it, thwarting it, and defeating...

    LOS ANGELES The biggest question ahead of Wednesday nights Simi Valley GOP debate may be how many times candidates on stage at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library will break the 40th president's Eleventh Commandment."Though shalt not speak ill of any Republican," was Reagan's oft-repeated mantra. Nearly everyone involved in Republican politics anticipates Wednesday night will be a brawl, as candidates take turns swiping at real estate developer Donald Trump.

Ted Cruz avoided the verbal combat that took place among Republican candidates on the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library debate stage on Wednesday night. The central figure in the debate and the presidential campaign Donald Trump was on the receiving end of almost constant critiques, jabs and dress-downs from his rivals on the stage. Cruz's clear insistence that he will not alienate Trump meant that in this context, he was left on...

Romney needs a plan to turn the tables on Obama, and turn some of his own perceived weaknesses into strengths while putting the president back on the defensive. This week I offer the Romulans a plan to do exactly that, with a battle plan I use every night on my show to advance my principles and that I have used to help...

    Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. Suppose your 18-year-old daughter was about to be launched into the world of courtship. Youve raised her to be the best wife and mother she can be. She is beautiful, wise and loves God with all of her heart. For some reason, however, you are afraid that she will not be able to capture the heart of a truly noble man. Having a successful courtship that leads to an early marriage is important to you because you dont want to...

    The harassment scandal highlights Cain's rift with Iowa's most dangerous conservative talker. Herman Cain has messed with the wrong Iowan. One strand of the multifaceted scandal unfolding around the Republican presidential candidate this week has been the charge that Cain treated female staffers of Des Moines-based radio host Steve Deace in a manner Deace found "awkward and inappropriate." While Deace has refused to describe the interaction that prompted that characterization, he has also spent the week relentlessly pounding Cain on his nightly talk show -- and taking to task the conservatives who, at least at first, largely defended the former...

    On Friday morning, our very own Rebekah Maxwell got an opportunity to do something few in the media have had the chance to do at one of Rick Perrys presidential campaign stops ask him a serious question about his own record. Given Perrys answer, it calls into question either Perrys truthfulness or whether or not he even knows his own record. In the exchange, Maxwell asks Perry about his support for the controversial 2008 bank bailout known as the TARP, a hugely unpopular move that eventually launched what is now known as the Tea Party movement. Perry responds by...

    What is better? To ban some abortions or ban none because just banning some is incrementalism and not prolife enough? That is a debate that is happening at the Iowa Statehouse and on the air waves. Eric wrote on Tuesday about the battle for life at the Iowa Statehouse especially surrounding the first prolife bill this session on the docket House File 5. This bill in effect bans all abortions beyond 20 weeks with certain exceptions. It would keep Dr. Leroy Carhart from setting up shop in Council Bluffs, IA. It is a good bill, and it is a...
