    During a particularly heated moment during the fifth Republican presidential debate in Las Vegas, Ted Cruz outlined how the USA Freedom Act allowed anti-terrorism officials to actually look at more phone data, only they needed a warrant.  During the exchange, he mentioned some specific numbers and stats concering the NSA surveillance program.  Immediately, a senior staffer for the Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence used her Twitter account to imply Cruz compromised national security.  Here's the tweet: Cruz shouldn't have said that.— Becca Glover Watkins (@beccaglover) December 16, 2015 The next day, after initially saying he would investigate whether...

    I was among the first national radio hosts to support Marco Rubio in his uphill Republican primary campaign for the Senate against the unprincipled Florida Governor Charlie Crist.  Back then, he ran as an unabashed Tea Party conservative.  I also supported Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, among others, in their campaigns against the entrenched GOP establishment.  But soon after arriving in Washington, Rubio decided to throw in with these politicians – including John McCain and Lindsey Graham and take an active leadership role in the Gang of Eight fiasco.  As he runs for the Republican presidential nomination, Rubio has attempted...
  • Ted Cruz Joked About Hymens While On The College Debate Circuit

    The New York Times dug up some priceless anecdotes from Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-TX) college debating career in a story published Tuesday, from a poorly received joke about regenerating hymen to his affinity for the "Les Misrables" soundtrack. The newspaper spoke with several of Cruz's rival debaters who said that the presidential candidate was a powerful speaker that could be undercut by humor. He would "unravel" when competitors deployed humor against him, according to former Yale debater Austan Goolsbee (an economist who later served on President Obama's cabinet). Cruz also fared poorly when he made jokes himself. From the Times...

He twice refused to set any limit on the number of foreign youths who would be given the opportunity to ask the administrations immigration judges for permission to live in the United States. Johnson and several deputies delivered the threat to GOP legislators during a brief June 12 press conference. The threat was offset by statements........

    According to a report in The New York Post, President Barack Obama allegedly responded to a letter he received from a Texas school teacher who was concerned about the negative impact the Affordable Care Act may have on the presidents political position by referring to conservative Americans as tea baggers. This bill has caused such a divisive, derisive and toxic environment, wrote Thomas Ritter, a fifth-grade teacher at Sally B. Elliott Elementary in Irving, Texas. The reality is that any citizen that disagrees with your administration is targeted and ridiculed. Ritter added that he was afraid to write the president...

    Now that true horror stories of Obamacare's wrecking ball are finally reaching the public, the White House doesn't like "anecdotes." Live by tale-telling; die by tale-telling. On Tuesday, White House press secretary Jay Carney huffed that stage-four gallbladder cancer survivor Edie Littlefield Sundby's personal account in The Wall Street Journal of seeing her health insurance plan canceled and her access to doctors cut off was "sensational." Not a shred of compassion for her predicament. No sorrow for her loss. Must. Attack. Messenger. There are millions out there like Sundby who are using Facebook, Twitter, and a new website called...

Republicans tried to get an agreement in the Senate to restore the parks money along with funding for the National Institutes of Health, the military reserves and National Guard, and veterans affairs, but Democrats objected to each of those agreements in turn.

He would remind seniors that if Congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling, seniors wouldn't get their Social Security checks. "GOP strategists like Karl Rove surely know that it's just a matter of time before President Obama throws a game-changer warning senior citizens that their Social Security checks won't be mailed because of John Boehner," Valliere wrote in a note to clients.

"There are enough Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives today that if the speaker of the House, John Boehner, simply let the bill get on the floor for an up or down vote, every congressman could vote their conscience, the shutdown would end today," Obama said in a speech in Rockville, Maryland.

They dont believe in evolution they believe in devolution devolve all the duties to the states, DeFazio continued. Dissolve the Union essentially. Go to some loose federalism and...

    I sat down and watched President Obama's speech today on Obamacare and wondered if he was going to lash out at Republicans for the (non) government shutdown. As I fought the rising bile and oncoming nausea I always experience hearing our liar-in-chief, I was not disappointed. Obama's speech is a textbook example torn from the liberal progressive handbook. He started off with a painful "is this on?" bit about the microphone, just showing how much of an amateur he is on the big stage. He then immediately launched into attacking the Republicans for the government shutdown (I like the term...

    There is an all-out effort to demonize gun owners in the United States today. Those that own guns are repeatedly portrayed as being uneducated, mentally deficient racists in the mainstream media. No evidence is ever produced to actually back up those claims. Gun owners regularly make lists of potential terrorists in official government documents, and many government officials openly regard them as ultra-paranoid conspiracy nuts that are a serious threat to national security. Of course the truth is that gun owners are actually among the most law-abiding and patriotic people in the entire nation, but that doesnt really fit with...

    Marketing experts preach that redefining a market is the best way to win it over. This is why gun control politicos are now making an effort to change their messages, targets and tactics. Over the last twenty years or so, gun control has lost. They lost the constitutional argument. They lost the criminological debate. They lost the support of the general public. My hope was that they would continue doing exactly what they have been doing, because they would continue their losing streak and might eventually become a historical footnote. But they are getting shrewder, as evidenced by a new...

    President Barack Obama lashed out at Republican opponents of the healthcare law he pioneered on Thursday. In a feisty speech at a Washington-area college, Obama defended the 2010 Affordable Care Act against Republican critics who say it is an example of government gone too far. Obama said Republicans fear Americans will come to like the healthcare law, saying their strategy is basically, "'We've got to shut this thing down before people find out that they like it.'" "Don't you think that's a strange argument? And the closer we get, the more desperate they get," he said.

    George Zimmerman should be disarmed. If ever a man deserved to be shunned by society, it is pudgy Georgie Zimmerman. And in some quarters, he is. Unfortunately, there are enough of his ilk around the big guns who run the National Rifle Association, conservative talk radio Obama haters and others who quickly and emphatically drew the besieged Floridian into their warm and fuzzy protective cocoon of right-wing fanaticism. The ink was not even dry on the long-delayed Zimmerman arrest warrant when the NRA brass leaped to his defense because he fulfilled their classic gunfighter role model a...

    One might expect that the extra scrutiny applied to conservative political groups by the IRS would have ended after the practice got exposed three months ago. At least according to a recent deposition from the House Ways and Means Committee investigation into the scandal, IRS agents still are being directed to automatically apply extra scrutiny to applications mentioning the Tea Party, even if no other political activity is indicated in the application: Q: “If you saw – I am asking this currently, if today a Tea Party case, a group – a case from a Tea Party group came in...
  • 11 Liberal Rules for Racism in America

    08/13/2013 11:19:10 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | August 13, 2013 | John Hawkins
    When America was a racist country, Democrats were primarily the ones engaged in racism. However, now that racism has been largely relegated to the fringes of American society (the KKK, the New Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam, La Raza, MEChA, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, American Nazi Party, etc.), the Democrats are constantly wagging their fingers about it. Of course naturally, given the racist history of the Democrat Party, liberals have managed to rig the rules in order to benefit themselves and hurt their political opponents. That's a pretty neat albeit despicable trick that they've managed to pull off. 1)...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 8-12-13 | Sean Higgens
    Buried in a lengthy Washington Post article about President Obamas environmental policy is an illuminating anecdote about just how debatable the administration views climate change namely, not at all: In an agency-wide address to employees Aug. 1, (Interior Secretary Sally) Jewell took the unusual step of suggesting that no one working for her should challenge the idea that human activity is driving recent warming. I hope there are no climate-change deniers in the Department of Interior, she said. The address does not appear to be posted on the departments website, so the Washington Examiner can only go by the...
  • Reid Hopes GOP Opposition To Obama Isnt Over Race (Racial Arsonist of The Highest Order)

    In a radio interview in which he lamented the GOP filibusters and a gridlock in Congress, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he hopes Republicans who oppose the president do so based on substance and not the fact that hes an African-American. The comment came Friday during the Nevada lawmakers appearance on Las Vegas-based National Public Radio affiliate KNPR (, and drew swift response from Sen. Tim Scott, R-South Carolina, who is black. I hope Sen. Reid will realize the offensive nature of his remarks and apologize to those who disagree with the presidents policies because of one thing...

    Obama Press Conference ^ | August 9th 2013 | Understand the Stimulus
    The Brain Dead American Media missed this veiled threat in Obama's opening statement: "We shouldnt forget the difference between the ability of our government to collect information online under strict guidelines and for narrow purposes, and the willingness of some other governments to throw their own citizens in prison for what they say online" Tell that to the arab who made a movie and posted it to the Net and who was blamed for creating the Benghazi Attacks ? Tell that to all those who have been surveilled by federal agencies using the NSA databases ? Obama often uses words...
  • Democratic anti-gun 'guide' urged using Trayvon Martin's death to hit NRA, guns

    Just revealed Democratic anti-NRA talking points urge anti-gun advocates and politicians to hype high-profile gun incidents like the Florida slaying of Trayvon Martin to win support for new gun control laws. In talking points likely followed by top Democratic leaders including President Obama after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in December, the anti-gun "guide" urged gun foes to speak out when a shooting "creates a unique climate" to shout down the National Rifle Association."The most powerful time to communicate is when concern and emotions are running at their peak," said the 80-page document titled "Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective...

    I love how the words just casually roll off his tongue, as if he had been saying them all his life. Which he has. But there is no such thing as black racism, don't you know? Using a racial epithet to describe one's political opponents is accepted behavior. Or at least it must be because the only people saying anything about it are those on the right. But even at 83, dressed in a blue bow tie and crisp gray suit, Rangel is relentless toward those who he feels are slowing the forces of progress. House Republicans? Have done more...
