Media dogpile on Ted Cruz
Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/16/2013 9:28:05 AM

Freshman Sen. Ted Cruz R-Texas is breaking china in the Senate – and the media is responding. Here are the latest media stories and columns reacting to Cruz’s Tea Party firebrand behavior – and fretting about his lack of comity in the Senate. New York Times: The G.O.P.’s Nasty Newcomer “When a Vesuvius like John McCain tells you that you belch too much smoke and spew too much fire, you know you’ve got a problem.” Washington Post: Ted Cruz, making quite an entrance “Ted Cruz is not going to win Senator Congeniality. Not that he cares.

Comments:
Those in the media and the Democrats are so predictable. They will always attack those who threaten them. Cruz wasn´t spared from his own party either, McPain defended Hagel against Cruz, which made no sense since he himself attacked Hagel. Nothing makes sense in Washington.

I am hoping more will stand up for what is right by gaining some backbone from Cruz. Contrary to all the negative articles written about him this past week, he is asking the questions which are needed to be asked and not just grandstanding for the cameras like McCain and Graham. To h.e.l.l. with the status quo! Keep up the good work, Senator Ted Cruz! We, the people, are fortunate to have one of your character and morals representing Texas and the rest of the nation. God Speed!

OP hit the nail on the head. How can McPain criticize Cruz on his questioning methods of Hagel when he himself, along with his best friend, Ms Lindsey, kind of made hamburger out of Hagel? Cruz was gentle compared to those two.

Washington is now like Alice in America´s Wonderland where "up is down and down is up," "black is white", "small is big and big is small", etc.

The MSM better not get too full of itself blasting Cruz, he is far more skilled than they are at arguing: Cruz is the former Texas solicitor general and has argued before the Supreme Court nine times, more than any practicing lawyer in Texas or any current member of Congress.

BTW and unrelated, we just learned that Justice Scalia has taught Justice Kagan to hunt, and apparently she enjoys hunting and wants to bag an antelope.

So many Senators have given up their zeal for representing the people and defending the Constitution. Because they didn´t have the strength of character to stand up to the biased media and the majority, they have adapted the go-along-to-get-along strategy. I just can´t wait until the Senate actually begins working on budgets and regulatory matters. Cruz is way out of the class of the hacks who are drafting laws and regulations.

Isn´t this getting old? Come on.
What does it take to think of a clever game plan to use against the media. Where are all the generals? The stinking media is out to destroy any Republican who gets national attention. Maybe it´s time to play rough and mess with their heads and not be afraid to do so.

Okay here´s an idea. What if they create a swarm defense machine with at least six Ted Cruz like politicians attacking the media from various directions all at the same time. It may take a awhile but after throwing a few counter punches that hurt, a time or two, you´ll see them shrink and run away. Shake them up, confuse them. They are the enemy within. The GOP needs to learn how to be better prepared going forward. Turning the other cheek is not going to win votes or respect.

Right now Cruz is their the target du jour. However, I have no doubt he will let the media bully him without a good fight. Go Ted.

I´ve met Ted´s dad and it is apparent where Ted´s "fire" comes from. His dad is a wonderful force for good. Coming from Cuba, he is a real advocate for freedom.

I just hope that Ted, his dad, and other Hispanic men in Texas can gain a platform and influence other residents of Texas who may soon gain the right to vote. I´m trying to influence every young Hispanic person I know. The ones I know are hard working and have never taken welfare. They are natural Republicans, but may need help understanding that.

I find it interesting that, if the Republican establishment had its way, Cruz would never had won the primary.

In the NYT hit piece, it mentions Cruz was born in Canada. I don´t believe much in the NYT, so can anyone else verify?

Anyway, we need to clone Cruz. Maybe he´ll set an example and other senators will follow. That is exactly why the media are dogpiling - because they´re afraid this might be contagious.

Cornyn is not a conservative and never has been. He voted to confirm Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Sotamayor and Kagen.

Baloney. Cornyn is an excellent conservative senator and obviously, Texas agrees. Being head of the RSCC is a hugely difficult job and someone is always left unhappy. Right now as the #2 Republican in the Senate, even lefty site Politico calls him a "conservative hard-liner" and he´s fighting Hagel. I don´t know whom you prefer, but we should be careful in our pursuit of the perfect, because everyone´s perfect isn´t the same.

I have here in my hand a list of six people who think Darrell Issa is a fellow traveler of Joseph McCarthy. I compiled these names while watching Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, lead his panel’s proceedings Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Among the half-dozen Democrats who made the comparison: “What we’re about today brings us right back to the McCarthy era,” Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) said. Rep.

DOJ says cross on California

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

Michael Isikoff Out at NBC News

Isikoff joined NBC News in 2010 as a Washington, DC-based investigative correspondent, after 16 years with Newsweek.

AP President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

Climate change is one of the issues at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda, and now it’s getting big budget treatment in Hollywood, at least by documentary standards. A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview. Mr. Cameron, who became one of the most successful men in

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That would involve Britain and other nations increasing spending ten-fold on wind farms and other green

Fifty years later we are locked in a time of deep political division in America, frustrated by a Congress that can’t deal with a national immigration crisis, protect the right to vote or even pass a jobs bill to help the struggling economy. But this Thursday, four presidents – Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter – will stand together at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, Texas. The historical significance of this moment cannot be overstated. The presidents will come together as a powerful symbol of America’s ability, as demonstrated 50 years ago, to

Around the country, students are now taking preposterously lengthy standardized tests related to the Common Core Standards Initiative. To the chagrin of education bureaucrats, there’s a growing backlash against the test among parents—many of whom are opting their children out of the tests. (RELATED: You won’t believe what happened to this kid’s mom after she knocked Common Core) There’s also a growing backlash against the tests among teachers and school officials at elementary and middle schools. New York State is ground zero for this phenomenon. By the score, teachers and administrators across The Empire State have taken to the internet

In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods. The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller. Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools. Still reeling from the closure of 50 schools in 2013, embattled Chicago Teachers Union Karen Lewis called the turnaround plan “a slap

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
