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.
Dile a él, ya que es el senador Cruz. Los pendejos otros están allí sólo para recoger un cheque de pago. Ellos no harán ningún trabajo honesto y mucho menos de nada

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!
It may not fully make up for President Obama’s gutting of America’s manned spaceflight program, but for now it will have to do. Star Trek’s Galileo, the fiberglass shuttlecraft featured on the “The Galileo Seven” episode of the classic ’60s sci-fi series, was officially unveiled Wednesday at Space Center Houston, the official museum/visitor center of NASA´s Johnson Space Center, where it will remain on permanent display. If nothing else, the Galileo development program proved far less costly than NASA’s $9 billion next-generation space program, Constellation, which fell victim to Mr. Obama’s budget ax in 2010.
President Obama, who extolled the value of middle-class construction jobs during nearly five years of recession and recovery, has changed his tune to borderline contempt for the blue-collar jobs needed to build the Keystone oil pipeline. In a speech in Chattanooga, Tenn., Mr. Obama actually chuckled derisively Tuesday when he mentioned that Republican lawmakers are promoting the pipeline project for the thousands of jobs it would create over two years. “They keep on talking about this — an oil pipeline coming down from Canada that’s estimated to create about 50 permanent jobs,”
Two New York Times reporters recently posited for President Obama this grim scenario: Low growth, high unemployment, and growing income inequality become "the new normal" in the nation he leads. "Do you worry," the journalists asked him, "that that could end up being your legacy simply because of the obstruction ... and the gridlock that doesn´t seem to end?" Obama´s reply was telling. "I think if I´m arguing for entirely different policies and Congress ends up pursuing policies that I think don´t make sense and we get a bad result," he said, "it´s hard to argue that´d be my legacy.
A military court Tuesday convicted Army Pfc. Bradley Manning of violating the Espionage Act for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, a verdict that legal analysts say likely will have a chilling effect on others considering revealing government secrets. While Manning, 25, was acquitted of the most serious charge — aiding the enemy, which carried a penalty of life in prison without the possibility of parole — he still faces up to 136 years in prison when he is sentenced at Fort George G. Meade, Md. The sentencing hearing, which starts Wednesday
A Saudi Arabian activist said his government provided Egypt´s military with $1 billion to stage a coup against former president Mohammed Morsi and install interim leadership. Political activist Mujtahid bin Hareth bin Hammaam, who operates an active Twitter campaign aimed at exposing corruption in the Saudi government, said Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi received the money on July 3, United Press International reported. The reason for the payoff, he alleged, was so Egypt’s transfer of power would flow smoothly. But now the Saudi government isn’t sure it spent its money wisely, he said.
Republican lawmakers blasted a proposal by President Obama on Tuesday to cut corporate taxes in exchange for more spending on job-training programs, calling it a revival of a failed plan that would raise taxes initially. “It’s just a further-left version of a widely panned plan he already proposed two years ago — this time, with extra goodies for tax-and-spend liberals,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican. “The tax hike it includes is going to dampen any boost businesses might otherwise get to help our economy.” Mr. Obama visited an Amazon.com distribution center in Chattanooga, Tenn.,
Writing at RealClearPolitics, Heather Wilhelm says that she’s moving from Chicago to Austin, Texas soon. Howdy and welcome! Her move has generated the usual liberal reaction — “Oh, good, because Austin is TOTALLY DIFFERENT from the rest of Texas.” Implying, or often outright stating, that the rest of Texas is a relic of the Neanderthal era with a strong dose of that old time religion that liberals fear and loathe so much. The reaction amuses her, as it should. This deep-seated fear of the ills of religion is intriguing, given that in both books, said ills
The consensus response to President Obama’s Knox College speech on the economy is that the administration has been reduced to pushing a menu of stale and timid policies that, in any case, won’t be enacted. But what if the administration isn’t actually out of ideas? What if Obama’s boldest policy initiative is merely something he’d rather not discuss? And what if that initiative is being enacted right now? A year ago, I published Spreading the Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities. There I described the president’s second-term plan to press a transformative
Hollywood’s James Woods took to Twitter to condemn a recent Rolling Stone magazine edition that seemed to glorify terrorism by splashing a rock-star-type photograph of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its cover. His weekend tweet included a mock-up of a Rolling Stone cover with the head shot of the 8-year-old boy, Martin Richard, who was killed in the April 15 blast. Mr. Woods‘ accompanying Twitter text: “Rolling Stone cover we will never see.” On Monday, the tweet was still making social media waves, with nearly 700 retweets and more than 260 ‘favorites’ clicks.
The FBI has told Congress it does not need to get a warrant to conduct surveillance with drones, in a letter laying out some of the top federal law enforcement agency’s policies for how it uses unmanned aerial vehicles. In a July 19 letter to Sen. Rand Paul, Stephen D. Kelly, assistant director for the FBI’s congressional liaison office, said the agency has used drones in 10 instances, including twice for “national security” cases and eight times for criminal cases. The FBI authorized the use of drones in three other criminal cases but didn’t deploy them.
Via Hot Air and Byron York, Barack Obama has crossed the constitutional Rubicon. The die is cast. He realizes as much, and is daring Congress to stop him in the pixels of the New York Times. NYT: People questioned your legal and constitutional authority to do that unilaterally — to delay the employer mandate. Did you consult with your lawyer? MR. OBAMA: Jackie, if you heard me on stage today, what I said was that I will seize any opportunity I can find to work with Congress to strengthen the middle class, improve their prospects, improve their security
Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
America is in great shape energy-wise. We have more gas and oil reserves than ever before. Indeed, the United States could shortly become the world’s largest exporter of coal. Our cheaper power rates may bring energy-intensive industry back from Europe and Asia. If America’s small colleges are nearly broke and our public schools failing, nonetheless our blue-chip universities’ math, science, and engineering departments, and professional schools, remain the best in the world.

It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. But within a decade, it is expected that the ocean which the village of Kivalina has so relied on will completely destroy it--creating America´s first climate change refugees.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
I never thought the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case deserved nearly the attention it got. But reasonable people can disagree about that. What strikes me as unconscionable, however, is the way the supposedly objective media have not only sensationalized a tragedy but at times appear to deliberately bend the facts to fit a desired story line. Maybe it started with the use of pictures of a younger Martin or with the sudden embrace of the term "white Hispanic" to describe Zimmerman in order to more easily paint him as a racist. NBC News was the most egregious offender
