I say thanks for posting this encouraging piece. I´m beginning to wonder if Senator Cruz is that rare combination of brilliant intellect, Godly character and and courage that we have been waiting for -- could it be?

Bill Clinton: Why doesn’t

Hot Air, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 6/24/2014 11:46:31 PM     Post Reply
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has had a rough time of it ever since she asserted that both she and her husband were “dead broke” and “struggled” after leaving the White House in 2001. “A few weeks before they left the White House, the Clintons were able to muster a cash down payment of $855,000 and secure a $1.995 million mortgage,” Politifact observed. “This hardly fits the common meaning of ‘dead broke.’” Clinton might have taken the public backlash over this minor gaffe in stride, but she didn’t. Speaking with The Guardian over the weekend, Clinton again reasserted her credentials on

Jackson, Mississippi -- Lifelong Democrat Jackie Bland is doing something she never thought she´d do: Urge people to vote for a Republican. Bland supports Thad Cochran, a six-term Mississippi senator who´s trying to fend off a fierce tea party challenge to his seat from Chris McDaniel as voting got underway in Tuesday´s primary runoff. Two weeks ago, Bland helped put up 5,000 pro-Cochran posters in black communities and talk to people about his record. "We wanted to raise the awareness to African-Americans that we do have a stake in this runoff election," she said. She pointed to Cochran´s efforts to secure federal funds for

Sarah Palin joined Sean Hannity to weigh in on the latest election news, and Palin told Hannity that it would be hard for her to stay with the Republicans and get excited about them if they continue acting like Democrats and rolling over. She took a shot at the “status quo” politics of people like Senator Thad Cochran and said the Eric Cantor upset shows people want strong constitutionalists in power who don’t represent “the man [or] the establishment” in Washington. Hannity asked Palin if she would actually follow through on her previous hints she’d go third party. Palin replied, “If Republicans

Former President Bill Clinton has been busy writing “playbooks” for his wife, Hillary, to use in her likely 2016 presidential campaign including how to “take maximum advantage of my death," according to a new book out Monday. In Edward Klein´s “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas,” the former president is quoted suggesting that his death and subsequent state funeral would help elect Hillary Clinton. He said it would be “worth a couple of million votes.” In the epilogue of his book, provided to Secrets, Klein quotes Bill Clinton complaining that the Hillary Clinton for President campaign in 2008 started too late.

‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” the song goes. It is easy enough to spell, but for some vocal critics of President Barack Obama, it seems exceedingly hard to do. As the president moves toward the land of the lame ducks, his political enemies are calling for blood. That’s no shocker at this stage of a presidency. In this case, the cuts go deeper. For some, it is not enough to disagree. Some high-status public figures seem determined to demean, denigrate and ridicule the president of the United States. On June 12 the Speaker of the U.S. House stepped to a podium and insulted Obama for his handling of

If Hillary Clinton ends up running for president again, she´ll have a roaring pop star in her court. Katy Perry offered to contribute to Clinton´s potential campaign in a very big way after the two met at a book signing for the former Secretary of State´s memoir "Hard Choices." "I told (Hillary Clinton) that I would write her a ´theme´ song if she needs it," Perry, 29, wrote Friday on Instagram, sharing a photo of them posing with the book. Clinton, 66, accepted the "Firework" singer´s offer with a pun-filled tweet in response.

A lean and cheery Bill Clinton schmoozed his fellow well-heeled Westchesterites at Caramoor, the music festival in Katonah, NY, not far from the Clinton family’s Chappaqua digs. While Hillary Clinton stayed seated for most of Saturday’s gala dinner, Bill was up and shaking hands. “Hillary and I are over the moon!” about becoming grandparents, the beaming ex-prez told The Post’s Barbara Hoffman. “We’d like to set up a pad outside their apartment so we don’t miss a thing!” Daughter Chelsea and husband Marc Mezvinsky have yet to make public their due date after announcing the pregnancy in April, but expect a little

House Majority Leader-elect Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blamed crossover votes by Democrats for Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) surprise primary defeat at the hands of David Brat in an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show on Monday. He stated that was surprised by Cantor’s defeat, and did say that “all politics are local” when asked why he thought Cantor lost. McCarthy added that he had “read five different analyses” and one theory he came across was “Democrats voted 30 percent in [that race].” He added that “I don’t even think it’s one thing that does it, I think it’s a number of things,” but

WASHINGTON — Democratic U.S. lawmakers announced legislation on Monday that would provide lawyers for thousands of undocumented minors streaming across the border into the United States, saying forcing children to face deportation proceedings alone goes against fundamental American values. "It is a fantasy to believe that they have a fair shot in immigration proceedings without counsel," New York U.S. Representative Hakeem Jeffries told a news conference. Jeffries and the other House of Representatives Democrats introducing the bill said as many as 40 to 50 percent of the undocumented children would have legitimate claims to remain in the United States under current law,

In an interview with KABC radio last week, Rep. Janice Hahn (D-CA) offered the liberal world view of globalism before nationalism last week during an interview about the on-going crisis in Iraq. Hahn said she was "kind of uncomfortable" with the concept that the United States could claim any moral authority in using military action. "I´m kind of uncomfortable with, you know, with the United States feeling that we do have some moral authority to go into these other countries and use military power to solve problems," the California lawmaker said.

After the shellacking the RINO segment of the RNC took last week with Eric Cantor’s defeat, one would think they might get the message that voters are sick to death of the business-as-usual tactics. Sadly it seems – they have not. From all indications, the RNC simply does not care if their anointed candidates are the most popular, most experienced, or best qualified. All that seems to matter is picking the guy or gal who’ll do the RNC’s (mostly liberal) bidding, even if that means working to destroy a solid conservative in the process. Typical of their low-life tactics is the

Republicans dropped a hammer on IRS Commissioner John Koskinen during a testy hearing covering the disappearance of emails tied to the agency´s tea party targeting scandal. The emails, covering the period January 2009 to April 2011, belonged to embattled former official Lois Lerner and could shed light on whether an expansive scheme to single out conservative groups for special scrutiny was guided by members of Congress or administration officials outside the IRS. ´The committee requested all of Lois Lerner’s emails over a year ago,´ said House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa. ´And we subpoenaed the emails in August 2013 and

Noted management expert and Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen was apparently called out of retirement — like the Ted Williams of evasive, unapologetic bureaucrats — to destroy what is left of his agency’s credibility. At immediate issue is two years of subpoenaed e-mails from former IRS official Lois Lerner to outside agencies, lost in a convenient computer crash. The possible involvement of other agencies is one focus of a congressional investigation into the heightened IRS scrutiny of conservative nonprofit groups before the 2012 election. In recent congressional testimony, Koskinen admitted that the e-mails

A week after an NBC News poll showed that the American people had lost faith in Obama´s competence and ability to lead, a new CBS News/New York Times poll has even worse news for a president embattled by his own incompetence, arrogance, and failed policies. In just one month, the president´s job approval rating has shifted a full 9 points against him. Though Obama was still upside on approval by 5 points (43-48%) back in May, he now faces a 14 point deficit of 40-54%. In just one month, disapproval of Obama´s foreign policy has skyrocketed a full 10 points

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

Women vote Democrat because they are smarter, Obama said to a White House audience Monday afternoon. He made the remark at the end of a talk at the White House Summit on Working Families. “Somebody asked: ‘Well, it’s well-known that women are more likely to vote for Democrats,’ to which I said, women are smarter,” Obama said. “This is true.” The rest of Obama’s talk centered on paid maternity leave, a minimum wage of $10.10, flexibility in the workplace, and access to childcare. He blamed Congress for moving slowly after he asked it to raise the minimum wage and when

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

The Daily Signal has learned that, under a consent judgment today, the IRS agreed to pay $50,000 in damages to the National Organization for Marriage as a result of the unlawful release of the confidential information to a gay rights group, the Human Rights Campaign, that is NOM’s chief political rival. “Congress made the disclosure of confidential tax return information a serious matter for

Krauthammer said that things are pretty bad, but noted, “There’s a big difference between decline as a condition and decline as a choice. What we have with Obama is a president choosing decline.” He continued, “We are in a position to dominate again, but we have a president who doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, American greatness, and he has chosen for America to retreat from the Middle East, to not lift a finger in places like Ukraine, basically to make us one nation among others.” Krauthammer said Obama is comfortable with
