CPAC 2013: Ted Cruz urges
conservatives to stand up
for the U.S. Constitution

Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Posted By:Dreadnought, 3/16/2013 11:21:04 PM

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas closed out the annual Conservative Political Action Conference by calling on the thousands of people in attendance to join him in standing up for the U.S. Constitution. Mr. Cruz also poked fun at Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who labeled him and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky as “wacko birds” because of the outspoken brand of politics they’ve brought to Capitol Hill. “I have to admit when Rand and I first heard that we thought it was a new kind of drone, ” Mr. Cruz said. “But if standing

I loved his speech. He seemed honest and credible, and he almost seemed to not need the prompting.

I notice that some sites were complaining that he said nothing new, but I thought he was good. All in all, I thought the conference was good. I just hope someone besides US saw it.

It WAS good. You know, anyone else notice how weird the FOX anchors acted at end of speech? It was like they couldn´t bring themselves to just SAY it was well-done, a hit with the audience, etc. Are they TOLD to keep positive comments to a minimum when it comes to conservatives???

We just watched the DVR´d version. WOW! I am blown away with this man´s speech, its content and the audience. No notes, no Tele-Promp-Ter, just plain spoken good sense.

That said, Sarah and Dr. Carson and so many others were terrific. An embarrassment of riches? You bet! Will we squander it? I hope not.

That straw vote should not be taken before everyone has spoken and any votes for people who weren´t there should be disallowed , as with Christie. That said, Rand is proving himself a force to reckon with,- I´m still not wholly convinced of Rubio though I love his energy and style. We have a deep bench and knowing Sarah is out there rooting for good people in the heartland and wonderfully unafraid to stick it to both Obama and the beltway establishment alike, gives us reason to become positive once more.

If fat RINO Christie came in third and Cruz came in third, that tells me that there´s something wrong with these people.

While the left sits around and handwrings over Hillary or MO for 2016,the GOP has an abundance of riches bench.The problem is they still don´t have a home run hitter.I think Christie had the potential to be the home run hitter but he blew it out of desperation for federal money to come rolling in after Sandy.If he was a seasoned politician he would have given Obama his due as president and drew the line there.A seasoned politician would have also known that federal bureaucratic red tape takes forever,regardless of what a liar like Obama says.

Our country has been adrift for so long that talk of the Constitution sounds radical. The thought of states rights seems bizarre.

The Washington politicians think that they run this country and we are their subjects. The RINOs think the only voices that should be heard are those who have put in their time in the house and senate and worked their way up the ladder. These new guys are taking a chain saw to the ladder. They are my heroes!

I like the comment, #9. I think of the Young Guns as Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan. I think of Cruz, Rubio and Rand Paul as using a Machete to slash through all the foolishness and get right to the core of the problem. THEY are going to be the people to pay attention to, not McCain or McConnell or any of the other " Old Dogs" in Congress! They are happy with things the way they are and do not want any Upstart to come along and rock their boat. Well, man the Lifeboats because they´re about to go overboard and these "Upstarts" are the guys who are about to throw them out of their plush little boats! Should be a good show!

Much of the speech Cruz gave was similar to the speech he gave at 11 pm during the filibuster by Rand Paul. On that night I was so enthralled with the speech by Cruz I was wishing all of the LIV could be forced to watch. I was glad to hear him repeat the message to another audience.
The reaction / sputtering by the Fox News anchor was pretty weird. I turn off Fox after noon on the weekends because many of their male anchors are liberals in those time slots. It´s also a good time to get the yard work done because I don´t feel like I am missing anything.

When you are telling the truth you don´t need a teleprompter to remind you to hide what you really think!

Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and the "new guy," Dr. Ben Carson, all have the ability to make a clear concise sentence - even a whole speech - without a teleprompter.

OTOH, try to recall even one clear and coherent answer to an unscripted question by Ø in any public forum in his known history.....

The Constitution is under attack like no time that I am aware of. Make no mistake. The socialist left would like nothing more than to scrap it entirely and impose a new Constitution on us. By force if necessary.

I find it remarkable and instructive that the very people that Dimocrits claim conservatives marginalize, use, and abuse are fast becoming the primary faces and voices of true conservatism. It scalds their butts that the very words of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution are used by those who are supposed to be suppressed by the implementation of those very documents.

Immigrants, legal immigrants, realize that conservative principles are the bedrock of success. Progressive policy leads to tyranny and the destruction not only of majority rights and freedoms, but EVERYONE´S rights and freedoms.

I look forward to being led by competent, patriotic, first and second generation Americans - not Latin Americans, not African Americans - but true blue Americans! Lead the way Ben and Ted! I´m ready to follow real leaders with real ideas that really work!

IMHO Sara Palin understands what she can do and what she can´t. She can not win a national election with the MSN reporting that she killed a polar bear while refilling her SUV. What she can (AND WHAT SHE IS DOING) is supporting candidates who are principled conservatives at the expense of the ESTABLISHMENT Republicans.

I admired Cruz for his staunch support of Rand Paul during the filibuster. Their loyalty is inspiring in comparison to the dirty campaign Romney ran. If Romney had attacked Obama in the way he had attacked fellow Republicans, he would be in the oval office today.

Both Cruz and Paul strike me as presidental candidates who are able and willing to get down in the mud and fight their junkyard dog opponents.

USAID documents cite Hillary
Clinton in chaos of Afghan aid
Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you —

   

 



 
Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
