Ted Cruz’s Cunning Response
to the Border Crisis: End DACA!

Slate, by Dave Weigel

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/20/2014 8:23:35 AM

It dropped last night and it´s unlikely to pass, but Sen. Ted Cruz injected himself into the border crisis like Paul Stanley rising out of a stage elevator at the start of a KISS show. True, Cruz is the elected U.S. senator from the state with the greatest current influx of child migrants. But his colleague, Sen. John Cornyn, was trying to get a coalition together for a small bill reversing the 2008 child trafficking provision that created a special processing system for migrants from Central America.* Cruz is going for a full defunding of President Obama´s Deferred Status for Childhood

Our Phoenix rose from the ashes? Sir, please, no more appearances with Beck. Persons will come away with the wrong assumptions. Sarah is counting on you. Let´s not let her down.

Our Senator makes more sense than almost anyone else in DC. The anti-American democrats and the milquetoast elites won´t like this, but normal Americans will love it!

As in the headline acronym, it should be Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Not "Status".

Cruz has a good idea. A lot of Obie´s executive actions should die due to lack of funds. He is an irresponsible person, a loose cannon in the WH.

Senator Ted Cruz knows what is going on.

Rather than go after the root cause of the problem-- Obama´s end-run unconstitutional executive "order" to provide de facto AMNESTY because the demonrat;s "dream act" failed--fellow Senator Cornyn is trying to make another "DEAL" to keep those people here while trying to keep others from coming.

Any sort of "deal" that even offers a glimer of a chance that these people can come and not be sent back, will just bring more people here. Any kind of AMNESTY or "fast-track" deal is NOT going to stem the tide.

We do not have the infrastructure to take this on. We cannot even run things well as it is right now! Cruz´s father leaving Cuba makes him well aware of the greatness of this country. Being over run with refugess in an invasion does not make sense.

This would never have come to pass without the president´s DACA program, and the blind support by big business and spineless republicans, who act like a deer in the headlights.

There are so many of these "children" who are close to voting age, and certainly many of them unskilled and uneducated who would take jobs AWAY from US citizens who are unskilled and uneducated.

The media hates his guts, but I stand with Ted Cruz. His defunding tactic may be the only way to stop the misuse of execitive power, if he can get enough strength in numbers to show some support against it.

" Why introduce it, if it won´t pass? "
Another Cruz rope a dope.
Republicans have only 45 seats in the Senate and nothing he or any Senate Republican proposes
will make it past Harry Reid.
Which is fine, if only Cruz stopped there.
His next step is then to turn around and tell naive audiences that it was " the gutless Republicans " who
refused to stand with him and stop.. fill in the blank.
FTA- " It´ll be dead easy to tell Texas (and Iowa) crowds that he wanted to kill the border crisis
at the root, but mushy Republicans failed to stand with him."
Low information base voters will always
buy Cruz´s lies.
The fault likes with Harry Reid and his Democrat Senate majority , but, it´s so much easier for Cruz and the Tea Party and talk radio to blame Republicans.
Especially when the base is so gullible.

"True, Cruz is the elected U.S. senator from the state with the greatest current influx of child migrants(and thus actually KNOWS something about the issues). But...". In 2000, Weigel voted for Ralph Nader, and served as a Delaware college elector for Nader. In 2004, Weigel voted for John Kerry. Weigel later wrote that "[he regrets] the Nader vote, but not the Kerry vote, as a weak Democratic president with a conservative Congress would have been pretty tolerable in retrospect". He voted for Jack Ryan in the Illinois United States Senate election, 2004 Republican primary. Since early 2007, Weigel has been a registered Republican in the Washington, D.C. area, in order to vote for Ron Paul at the Republican primary stage of the 2008 presidential election. In 2008, Weigel voted for Barack Obama, explaining "I really don’t think McCain has the temperament to be President or the interest in standing up to a Democratic Congress... I’ve got the luxury of a guilt-free, zero-impact vote in the District of Columbia, which I would cast for Bob Barr if he was on the ballot". In January 2011, Weigel stated that he has voted for Republican Patrick Mara on elections to the Council of the District of Columbia, and that he has voted for Mara "every time he´s been on the ballot." He confirmed this in April 2011. In the Republican Party presidential primaries 2012, Weigel voted for Jon Huntsman, despite him having withdrawn from the race, because "If you looked past his whiff of a tax plan (Huntsman recommended using the flat rates that Simpson and Bowles recommended not using), the guy had a few good ideas." In the 2012 general election, Weigel voted for Gary Johnson."

Cozying up to Glen Beck was more of the same,#13, but I think Senator Cruz may have realized his mistake with Beck. Cruz represents Texas. He doesn´t need Glen Beck´s children´s crusade to observe, study and address the border problem as it affects Texas.

#13: I think your hatred may be coloring your view of things. Cruz likes to make Republicans and Dems from red states uncomfortable for going along with Harry Reid and Obama. I think that´s a great pursuit and possibly the only chance the Republicans have to be positively effective.

As for Beck, I don´t really see much strategy in it. Cruz doesn´t have as much access as he should have because the Feds are pushing out all the lawmakers and letting them see only what they approve.

Hate does make some people blind. If only Cruz had hosted more coffees instead of selfishly putting himself out there to fight the totalitarian wave of the Dems/GOP. Shame on him. /s

At what point do we actually get serious about applying direct personal pressure on illegals? Not sure what the initial "pressure" would be, but currently illegals are accepted and even welcomed once they are here. When do we start doing things like picketing every fast food joint that is staffed by illegals and refusing to get our roof replace by a crew of obviously illegal workers? Anyone ever tell their neighbor that has an illegal working for them that they are unhappy about it? There is currently little or no "disapproval" or social rejection of illegals working in the US by most people, once it gets personal.

Every time we let these illegals work for us and do not object and REFUSE TO GIVE OUR MONEY to the businesses that hire them, we are supporting illegal immigration.

The Republicans in the senate aren´t voting overwhelmingly to go along with Harry Reid. They´re not even voting underwhelmingly to go along with him. They´re outnumbered. Cruz knows this. His gesture is pointless. But it does bring him attention, which I suppose IS the point.

Senator Cruz is fighting an uphill battle when he proposes legislation. Legislation that is virtually doomed to fail because the dems won´t vote for it, and the RINOs won´t vote for it.

At least he IS tying to stand for principle and not sitting on his hands!!! Many see this as drawing attention to himself and it may be, but at least he is still trying to fight against this "immigration reform" which is nothing but AMNESTY.

How about taking care of US citizens and the sovereignty and national security of our nation FIRST?

Unfortunately even if the Democrat Lite Party gets really lucky and does not have a couple of numbskull candidates that the liberal media can sucker into making some comments about how a woman´s body reacts to being raped, chances are that even if they win control of the US Senate and the White House that DACA will be there, as the Democrat Lite Party has little or no record of ever rolling back any big liberal Democrat social initiatives such as DACA in the past.

Next to the military, the Secret Service is probably the most highly regarded institution within the executive branch. Or it was.

Ted Cruz´s presidential campaign, which began more or less the day after he was elected to the Senate almost two years ago, is becoming a bit more official. “It´s 90/10 he´s in,” a Cruz aide told National Journal’s Tim Alberta. That’s not exactly news, because Cruz has been campaigning hard for years. It’s part of the game candidates play -- most runs get announced unofficially at least once or twice, and sometimes half a dozen times, before the official declaration. Cruz is terrific at generating attention, and at firing up conservative voters. He won the straw poll at the annual Value

The U.S. and Russia are sinking billions into nuclear-capable bombers, missiles, and submarines. Another round of “Mutually Assured Destruction,” anyone? Four years ago, a North American Aerospace Defense Command officer sang the praises of a joint counter-terrorism exercise with Russian forces, named Vigilant Eagle. “This exercise is one milestone in working together. Our folks are proud to be a part of such an important event and are passionate about partaking in efforts to protect our borders,” 176th Air Control Squadron operations officer Lt. Col.

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama´s escalating military campaign in Iraq and Syria has drowned out the economic pitch he hoped would help salvage a midterm election that has been favoring Republicans. But the airstrikes against Islamic State extremists have also introduced a new complicating factor into the fall campaign, forcing both sides to reassess their closing political messages. Obama is drawing new attention to the nation´s recovery from the Great Recession with a speech Thursday at Northwestern University, linking U.S. stature abroad to economic strength at home. It is a delicate argument for a president whose handling of pocketbook issues remains

By now, you’re probably familiar with the fact that some people in the US refuse to vaccinate their children. You are probably also familiar with the raging debate over vaccine refusal and whether parents should suck it up and vaccinate their kids for the sake of herd immunity, the common good, and society. But a recent piece in the Hollywood Reporter by Gary Baum really cuts to the heart of the vaccine refusal issue: It’s a class and privilege problem. The people refusing to vaccinate are primarily wealthy, coming from backgrounds of privilege, following in the footsteps of their wealthy and

Last year, Seedco received $1.2 million for the same services in Tennessee.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."
