Apparently, the "Washington Post" and "New York Times" don´t like the idea of a non-white U.S. Senator acting all uppity. It´s fine for the lily-white Elizabeth Warren to immediately come out guns blazing, but over the past couple of days both news outlets ripped into in Texas Senator Ted Cruz for not knowing his place. As we all know, the base of the Democratic Party is made up of union workers, who see Hispanics as a threat to their jobs, and rich, white, coastal liberals whose only contact with the Latino community is on grass-mowing day. And so
Time to turn it around. Everybody criticizing Cruz is a racist. Please say it, and keep repeating it over and over. We need to create impression right or wrong that Democrats hate Latinos. Why we do not exploit 300 people killrd in operation fast and furiuous as a racial black Latino issue? Why" "genius" Carl Rowe did not run an add like this I will never understand. If you want to win you have to play politics which is a nasty game. Nice guys always loose.
Democrats, "progeessives" (regressives), leftists, etc. have ALWAYS been the real racists. They have only pretended to care about people of color while projecting their racist views on others. They have promoted a few key minorities and "community leaders" to prestigious positions in order to keep their people in-line. But their goal is to keep the people generally in poverty and as controllable dependents. They (at least the ones in positions of power) actually hate people of color. The establishment, country club Republicans who don´t like Cruz just don´t want anyone shaking up the status quo where they can gain power and wealth through their office. They don´t want to lose a good thing even if it is hurting our country and the rest of us.
To Democrats, it really doesn´t matter if you´re Hispanic, black, white, Asian, male, female, gay or transgendered. If you´re not a socialist, Democrats will hate you - no matter what your race, gender, religion or ethnicity is.
Never back down Sen. Cruz. The nation is desperately looking for leaders. Honorable, principled men and women will save this country from the ruling class. So many people go to Washington and get sucked in by the establishment. Don´t let that happen. You understand the problems we are facing and have real solutions. Don´t get bogged down by the career politicians in your own party. They are the problem. Forge a new path for yourself and fellow conservatives and a grateful nation will support you. God bless you.

Here´s the difference between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, both ´hispanic´ senators:
Marco Rubio is Cuban. From Florida (and where is Obama this weekend? Gathering Rubio intel perhaps?) And, he is cute and cuddly, and has a self-deprecating sense of humor. Plus, he threw in with a few Establishment RINO senators on immigration.
Ted Cruz is Latino. (Learn the difference.) He´s from Texas. Lots of independent minds there in Texas. And they have a huge border problem, as do all southwestern and neighboring states. He´s handsome, not in a cuddly way, but in a rugged, manly-man way. He´s soft-spoken normally, but intense and - dare I say it? - PRINCPLED. He knows his positions because they come to him from within.
Now Rubio is principled too, but in my personal humble opinion, Cruz would be a better front man on the immigration issue.... he has lived it. Rubio´s family´s immigration was a completely different situation.
I understand, but have no verified proof, that Latinos don´t really see Cubans as ´like them´. Compare it to dark-skinned blacks vs. light-skinned blacks, perhaps, but there´s a certain resentment. Latinos in the southwest just want an open border, and there are extremists who want Atzlan back.
Watch for these 2, and other librags, to pit Cruz against Rubio directly. (They think they ´have´ Rubio and that he´s controllable.)
That´s funny, the unionist troglodytes don´t seem to have any problem with 15 million dim-voting illegals being over here to take their jobs from them. Rubio-Cruz in 2016 assuming the USA still exists in four years, that is.
Ted represents Texas but I read somewhere that he was born in Canada. This may simply be an expansion of the ongoing anti-Canadian pogrom which has been building for years. He may very well have gone to Catholic Schools too. You cannot trust anyone who knows how to diagram a sentence.
#15, Senator Cruz´s father escaped from Cuba to the U.S.in 1957. His mother was an American of Italian-Irish descent who was raised in Delaware. The elder Cruzes worked in the oil business in Canada; Ted was born in Calgary.
Sounds like the Times and Post want to go along with the idea that freshmen Senators and Representatives are just supposed to go along to get along once they arrive in DC. That they have to be around for a few years to "learn how we do things here". Well, there might just be a few that DON´T go along with that idea. They believe that they were elected to represent their districts and states and are bound to do so. These are they type of people we, as a nation, need a lot more of. And get rid of the dead wood at the same time.
The Republicans need to make lemonade and turn the racist card back on the Dems and go after the media bums right now.
First of all. Cruz is not non-white. The majority of Cubans are direct descendants from Spain. But, let them call Cruz non-white all day long as they dig themselves deeper into their own racist hole. This is discrimination in it´s highest form. Until we stand up to the media and go after every one of their false accusations, they will continue this game. We need to start right now with a campaign to counter these attacks. It will take a concerted effort between now and 2014 and 2016 to get our message across.

I´ve decided that I will send him $ every time he is tarred & feathered by demonrats. His site even has a donation box for $5 - I suspect I will be donating lots of those $5 allotments, but I want there to be a direct feedback to him to know we support him. I also asked for a Cruz bumper sticker and yard sign!
Speaking of the hideous actions of the damnocrats, one of the readings at mass this morning was about Satan tempting Jesus with power and glory over all the kingdoms of the earth. My first thought on reading the passage was the 0bama was also tempted this way and it took him less than a nano second to grab on to the devil´s agenda. Then the priest spoke about the passage in his homily and specifically referred to politicians and asked why it´s so hard to get good people to run for public office. He didn´t mention any names but I know him and I´m sure that he was referring to the likes of zippy, Pelousy, Dingey Harry and the MSM.
Cruz has spent a considerable amount of time in Washington prior to this. He knows those boys put on their pants one leg at a time and won´t be intimidated. He is the real thing, I think. BTW, why aren´t we reading that he was editor of the Harvard law review , an accomplished debater/speaker. That´s all we heard about in ´08. Bambie´s background isn´t on the charts compared to his.
#14 Thanks for a Spanish word I can use - pendejos. It should be quite valuable when I want to call someone (pendejo) or a group such as a bunch of Democrats (pendejos) what I think of them. I will be in good company because I believe Dick Cheney called Senator Patrick Leahy that word but in English. He should have said it in Spanish and he wouldn´t have gotten so much negative press.
El senador Cruz es de primera calidad y es un gran activo para el Partido Republicano.
Ted...read the Hate Speech language, then kick their rears!
"Hate speech is a communication that carries no meaning other than the expression of hatred for some group, especially in circumstances in which the communication is likely to provoke violence. It is an incitement to hatred primarily against a group of persons defined in terms of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and the like. Hate speech can be any form of expression regarded as offensive to racial, ethnic and religious groups and other discrete minorities or to women."
Make no mistake about it, this is Hate Speech and is definitely Racial!
The sequester, no matter how imperfect a policy, is arguably the only victory for fiscal conservatives in a very long time. Their victory is also president Obama’s biggest defeat (outside of the self-inflicted disastrous Obamacare rollout). It is also another opportunity to remind the American people that the alarmist predictions that we were all subjected to about the devastating impact sequestration would have on our economy didn’t materialize. Yet, in a new move, Republicans are once again considering caving to Democrats and getting rid of the spending cuts. This morning’s Wall Street Journal has the following. Still, officials close to
President Obama’s repeated use of presidential powers is causing a tough problem — his own supporters now expect him to use it to achieve everything they want. From immigration to the minimum wage, congressional Democrats and liberal activists this week urged Mr. Obama to declare an end run around Capitol Hill, assert executive authority and make as much progress as he can on the expansive agenda he laid out for his second term. A day after Mr. Obama denounced income inequality, progressive lawmakers said he should take the lead by issuing an executive order requiring all federal contractors to pay
Three crises, one president, many bewildered friends. The first crisis, barely noticed here, is Ukraine’s sudden turn away from Europe and back to the Russian embrace. After years of negotiations for a major trading agreement with the European Union, Ukraine succumbed to characteristically blunt and brutal economic threats from Russia and abruptly walked away. Ukraine is instead considering joining the Moscow-centered Customs Union with Russia’s fellow dictatorships Belarus and Kazakhstan. This is no trivial matter. Ukraine is not just the largest European country, it’s the linchpin for Vladimir Putin’s dream of a renewed imperial Russia, hegemonic in its neighborhood and
Entering his sophomore year at Occidental College, Barack Obama sought a political movement to match his personal awakening, which he signaled to friends and family at the time by reclaiming his African first name. Barry became Barack that year. He had read Du Bois, Fanon, Malcolm X — an array of authors writing about the black struggle for liberation in his country and in others shaking off the legacy of colonial rule around the world. That is where he looked for — and found — a figure and a cause to channel his rising political enthusiasm: Nelson Mandela, then imprisoned
I´m generally for more disclosure in campaign finance, but the best argument against requiring full disclosure by groups engaged in political speech is that politicians sometimes retaliate against their critics. Sen. Elizabeth Warren inadvertently made that very argument this week. As told by Ben White at Politico, a group called "Third Way" criticized Warren. Warren apparently suspected that Third Way´s criticism of her was funded by banks. So she wrote a letter to bank CEOs demanding they disclose which political groups they´re funding. Warren sits on the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. She´s basically telling the entities
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
