The Underpants Gnome Caucus
Townhall, by Derek Hunter

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/16/2014 5:57:47 AM

I have to preface this column with a disclaimer: I’m a big fan of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. His policy goals are my policy goals. But here comes the traditional “but.” But although his goals are admirable and shared by conservatives across the country, he has no idea how to achieve them. In fact, his actions in the Senate, which are bringing him praise from conservative groups and grassroots activists, are harming the cause. It’s an unpopular statement to make on the pages of Townhall. My column Thursday didn’t mention Cruz because it was written before he forced a cloture vote in

I disagree with the post. I think Cruz does know how to achieve them, if he can obtain more conservative leaders to back him and help him. Think of it.......what do we have in the House and Senate? 500 more or less? And we have TWO Senators fighting for the rights of Conservatives? How can they fight 500? Hello people......open your eyes to the facts. And then we have Representatives going on the news acting like saints AS IF they are working on the behalf of Conservatives but their votes tell the opposite story. Also just NOW ..they are hiding their votes...WHY? Because they are FOR OBAMA not for YOU.

Derek, you wrote a major-league whiny-baby column. Why? You complain about Ted Cruz´s lack of legislative victories. Free Clue: He´s only been in the senate for a year. You whine about his lack of strategy. He is educating the people about the sleazy tricks establishment politicians do, so they can fool their constituents.

We must get our federal government under control. Senator Cruz is one of only a handful of people trying to do that, right now. Derek, your solution is to wait until the next election, or the 2018 election to fight the ridiculous spending and take-over of our health care system. That is typical establishment thinking. We will get them next time... or the next time.... or the next time...

Free clue time, again. The establishment told Senator Cruz they would fight the fight this February, instead of last October. How did that lie work out?

Oh well, join the double-dog heretic club, #3.

I wish Senator Cruz or someone would explain the point of that particular exercise. Please tell us, Senator, that there was a valid reason. Surely it wasn´t simply to dump on your fellow Texan, Senator Cornyn.

Mr. Cruz couldn´t be much clearer on how to achieve his goals. The problem is he cant move forward if most of the rest of Washington D.C is working against him in trying to avoid admitting they are the problem. Its like dealing with someone with a multi-trillion dollar substance abuse issue.

Until that person is willing to admit they have a problem, there is no way any form of treatment is going to work.

Instead you get articles like this, attacking Cruz instead of the actual issue he is trying to fix.

I think Cruz and Palin are a lot alike. We know about their devout credentials,the problem is convincing the rest of the country they´re sable enough to handle to job of president.

Hillary´s been around politics for 40 years but she doesn´t have the wisdom to anything right.

Cruz needs more experience and his current image with the general public is he´s an extremist.He didn´t wind up with much if anything in the gov´t shutdown,

Cruz is forcing the truth out to the low information Americans; I personally have longed for the end of gamesmanship and he has certainly answered the call. The behavior of Republican establishment types is and has been reprehensible. Cruz is our braveheart.

The reason they (low-information voters) tend to BELIEVE the LIES that Tea Party and those who support it are RADICALS is because they have turned to the Dark Side. Their understanding and their eyes are on what they have been brainwashed to believe is the NORM which is the DARK SIDE because so many either lean that way or have turned that way. SO in comparison to the DARK SIDE.....the FORCE....or the Right way that initially helped this country grow and gain freedom for all Americans, looks RADICAL. But the true radicals and extremists are those who are DESTROYING our country, our freedoms, our families, children and YOU! Anyone who is too blind to see this is truly blind.

#4, the reason is simple. A clean debt ceiling increase is exactly what the establishment told us would NOT happen in February. They planned on fighting for more reductions in the budget, if they got their way in October.

They LIED! Senator Cruz exposed the lie.

There is absolutely NO reason for Cornyn to help the anti--American liberals, but he did. He rolled over and played dead, then got mad at Senator Cruz when he was exposed for doing that.

The establisment types keep saying first we have to win. Fine. What did they do when they were in charge of the White House and both houses of congress? They did exactly what the communists are doing now; raising the debt, expanding the governemnt and erasing freedom.
We seem to be fixated on this "win", but then what? They are the same as those they defeated.

It´s great to see some logic displayed from a goodly number of posters on this thread. Too often the most vociferous voices drown out the calmer comments.

No, those of us who have qualms or reservations about Senator Cruz´s tactics are not aligning with "the DARK SIDE".

FTA - I’m a big fan of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. His policy goals are my policy goals, “but.”

This has to be the biggest article ever written by a "But" monkey. Derek can´t figure out where Cruz would go if Republicans had taken a stand on the Debt Ceiling blank check to which I say taking a stand on principles is a pretty dam good place to start! I suspect Ted has some good ideas on where to go and what to do, better than most of these go-along-to-get-along, pay-to-play RINOs! If things are ever going to change from the current mentality of spend, spend, spend and spend some more, that ´s exactly where you have to start. Shut off the spigot!

The anti-Cruz element is the same group that supported:
Gerald Ford
Bob Dole
John McCain
Mitt Romney

I will no longer believe the lie that electing more "Republicans" is the solution. Democrats are married to socialism, while Republicans are its mistresses.

The country is done. Over. No longer functioning. Stop pretending that Lindsay Graham and Mitch McConnell will miraculously fix it. They don´t want to, they just want socialists to love them.

Cruz is exposing the treason that clearly exists within the Republican leadership. Traitors deserve no better.

this is what happens when the whole objective is electing GOP candidates, and keeping in office the ones who already there. Happens if you´d vote for Charles Manson if he wore a GOP team jersey,
Happens when you have no principles.
If you have no principles, you can´t use them as a clarion call to persuade undecided voters.
If the notion of taking a stand on actual issues is so noxious to these professional politicians, then they are no better than TV infomercial flaks.
We need fewer of them, and more "give me liberty or give me death" types. Cornyn and Graham and Lamar Alexander are the infomercial types. I spit them out as lukewarm.

OP, #3 and #4 are not "double-dog heretics". Au contraire, they are devoted, faithful adherents of their beliefs, as they have made clear through their many passionate posts.

However, those beliefs are NOT conservative. They are statist.

What good will it do to get a "moderate Republican" elected when he will vote with the communists 100% of the time? What have you accomplished? So your statist overlord calls himself a Republican instead of a Democrat while he crushes your liberty with an iron fist. Is that supposed to make us feel better about being reduced to subjects?

Ted Cruz is right. Ted Cruz is a fighter and he is unafraid. He will not join the Republican wing of the Democrat Party.

I stand with Ted Cruz with my vote, my time, my money.

Unfortunately, Derek Hunter is correct.

And Ted Cruz is not waking up the lofo´s - mention his name to one of them and he´ll think you´re talking about a baseball player.

And Romney was he best candidate we could have nominated last time around. No one hre has ever made a case - a 270 EV case - for any of the other 2012 aspirants.

We may very well have reached the point of no return. Culture does drive politics, and the moral pollution, laziness, self absorption and sheer ignorance out there is obvious to all of us.

Poster #19 says (and I agree) that "We may very well have reached the point of no return. Culture does drive politics, and the moral pollution, laziness, self absorption and sheer ignorance out there is obvious to all of us."

Ted Cruz provides an antidote to this dismal, post-modern culture and the lazy Establishment Elites who have perfected the thoroughly self-absorbed Go-Along-to-Get-Along game.

The divide among republicans and constitutional conservatives is plain to see on threads such as this. Republicans as a party have failed and still fail to serve the electorate, preferring their own little power games and insider gamesmanship. Many of them have turned it into a lucrative career at the expense of those they pledged to serve. The antidote urged by the TEA philosphy has produced good fruit and voices we want to hear, Ted Cruz et al, voices that are telling us how really rotten is the core known as Congress. This has to be acknowledged before course correction can proceed. Republicans cannot continue to bury their heads in the sand and ignore we the people; the correction is theirs to make or they must lose it all. The country is crying out for leadership not endless pap.

President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of “births” — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing “births” as one of the top goals of Obama’s “Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative.” The language on the CDC’s website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and “births” among minorities. Specifically, the CDC says the “purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching

Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences.

President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
