‘Blame Cruz’ Is the New ‘Blame
Bush’ for Whiny Democrats

PJ Media, by Stephen Kruiser

Aw, is someone sad? Rep. Chris Van Hollen slammed House Republicans on Thursday, saying members now have to check with “Speaker Cruz” to get any legislation passed. “It was Senator Cruz calling the shots, and that’s why people around here are calling him ‘Speaker Cruz’ today,” the Maryland Democrat said to MSNBC’s Alex Wagner. “It means when Speaker Boehner says he’s going to get something done from now on, he’d better be checking with Senator Cruz to see if he’s gonna get the votes because clearly the new leadership team isn’t up to the task.” It is perfectly understandable that

Thank you Ted Cruz! The author is right that the GOP establishment is incapable of leadership. The Dems are probably sorry they didn´t throw their support behind the RINOs so they could go to conference.

Right on, #7!!

The do-nothing RINOs hate Senator Ted Cruz with a passion because he calls them to repent of their wicked ways to cut deals with the demonrats!

Cornyn has lost his integrity over this amnesty issue. Call it "deferred adjudication", call it "path to citizenship", call it whatever you will, it is still AMNESTY.

Senator Sessions I applaud you! I guess you will now be a target like Ted Cruz.

The people have about had enough of the RINOs who will not stand for principle. It is not okay to have big spending- big government people giving away our birthright as citizens to those who don´t want anything to do with this country.

Two years ago I stood in black topped parking lots in 100 degree plus heat passing out a piece we wrote supporting Ted Cruz. In our County, Texas´s eleventh largest (of 240) Ted got 67% of the vote. At my poll, he got 80%. When he asked what he should do when he gets to Washington, he was advised a single word, "FIGHT"!!!! Obviously he has taken that to heart.

Despite all the vilification he has received from both sides of the aisle and the Fourth Estate, when the lights come up in the Senate for the next day´s struggles, you will find him standing at "scratch".

He embodies another Texan´s words, "We will not waver; we will not tire; we will not falter, and we will not fail".

We thank him for that.

Things are fine if everything goes the way radical left billionaires want it to go. The US is supposed to have a two party system and separation of powers. The country was designed so things would move slowly and be messy. Unlike Communist China for example. People like Mr. Boehner who are obsessed with ´getting things done´ might want to move to China and take a ride on their high speed rail.

NEW YORK -"We´re making a few changes around here," Chuck Todd said as he began moderating his first edition of "Meet the Press" on Sunday. The storied political talk show -- the first of its kind, it provided the template for so many that followed -- looked and felt a bit different with Todd in the chair and a panoply of executives behind the camera. They are determined to revitalize "Meet the Press" following the awkward departure of David Gregory.

Dithering by Barack Obama was alleged last night to have doomed a last-ditch attempt to rescue British hostage David Haines and US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff. US commandos started to plan the mission in June, calculating that they could land in Syria, kill the terrorists and evacuate the hostages in 20 minutes. But the mission was ‘crippled,’ according to The Wall Street Journal, when aides to President Obama said he would not approve surveillance flights over Syria to confirm the hostages’ location.

President Obama: ‘Energized,’

President Barack Obama may seem fatigued after nearly six years in office, but he said in an interview airing Sunday, he considers himself “energized” by what he hopes to accomplish before leaving the White House. Obama’s hair has grayed, and he’s spending less time worried about optics and more time on the golf course, but that doesn’t mean he’s “exhausted,” as NBC’s Chuck Todd said some have suggested the president might be.“You know, I actually feel energized about the opportunities that we’ve got,” Obama told the “Meet the Press” moderator in a sit-down interview taped Saturday.

As the Syrian government warplane flew overhead, Malik Abu Iskandaroon ran to a storage room and grabbed a Russian-made surface-to-air missile. Moments later, on the roof of the three-story villa, which serves as air force headquarters for the Harakat Hazm rebel group, he squinted at the threat in the sky. Missile launcher resting on his shoulder, Abu Iskandaroon prepared to fire. But in the end he refrained, as the Sukhoi fighter jet flew by, miles out of range of his older-generation weapon. As he stood by helpless, the plane fired one rocket toward the town, killing four people.

Put this interview in a time capsule and stow it away. Open it in the future, hopefully a future in which the thinking and the analytic will smirk and shake their heads at the nature of this interview and the lame responses from “the President”. Mr. Obama’s train of thought is non sequitar and intrinsically self defeating. He is choosing to postpone the long awaited immigration reform. He explains his proposal makes perfect sense and declares the country is clamoring for an amnesty like solution. Only the House Republicans are against the idea.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said new allegations that U.S. commandos were ordered to “stand down” during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, aren’t supported by findings from House and Senate investigators. Five commandos who survived the Benghazi attack, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, made the allegation in a new book, accusing the CIA station chief of delaying a rescue mission.

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations. But immigration activists said it’s the latest in a series of moves by Mr. Obama to shove their
