    It appears now that the Progressive/socialists that have taken over the Democrat party have been looking for the new shining star for the next Presidential election. Just a few weeks ago they rebranded themselves as “the Better Deal”. They speak well of jobs and infrastructure, and better wages for workers. Does anyone believe that anything has changed? Remember Obamas “fundamental transformation” of our country and how eight years of Obama did transform this country. Lower wages, lower respect from the world, and more division in the country because of the identity politics forced on the American people. The progressive/socialists have...

    The “official” kickoff for the 2020 presidential election is the day after the Nov. 6 midterm elections. Only seven months until another enthralling, action-packed plot line is layered atop the ongoing Trump-TV presidential reality show. After much thought and consideration about the 2020 presidential race, I am emboldened to predict that California U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris is likely to be the next Democratic presidential nominee. Kamala Harris Harris has yet to officially declare, but her actions indicate all systems go. As a loyal Republican since 1975, conservative writer and political observer, I base my prediction on the following five reasons...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who has been more of a team player since losing the 2016 GOP presidential primary to Donald Trump, is reemerging as an agitator in the GOP conference. Cruz is questioning Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) strategy on the GOP's 2018 agenda, which is to steer clear of partisan bills that don’t have Democratic support. Cruz, who is up for reelection this year and faces a spirited challenger in Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D), is leading a group of restive conservatives who want to vote on a budget resolution that would set up a special process —...

    The Turnbull Government has lost its one-seat majority after the High Court ruled Barnaby Joyce's election invalid because of his New Zealand citizenship. Mr Joyce will now face a by-election. The court also found former Greens senators Scott Ludlam and Larissa Waters were not validly elected, along with One Nation's Malcolm Roberts and the National Party's Fiona Nash.

    A government lawyer told Australia’s High Court on Tuesday that it could not take a constitutional ban on dual citizens being elected to Parliament literally when deciding the fates of seven lawmakers. Solicitor-General Stephen Donaghue told the High Court judges that five of the lawmakers, including three government ministers, should not be disqualified from Parliament for breaching the constitution because they did not voluntarily acquire or retain citizenship of another country. The hearing began on Tuesday and is expected to take three days. Under Section 44 (i) of the 116-year-old constitution, “a subject or citizen of a foreign power” is...

    Sen. Ted Cruz improperly accounted for Goldman Sachs loans he acquired during his 2012 Senate campaign, the Federal Election Commission ruled on Thursday. In a unanimous vote, FEC commissioners decided that the nearly $1.1 million in loans made to the to the campaign by Goldman Sachs and Citigroup should have been disclosed to voters and the American public. The final report from the FEC is expected in 30 days, and further action, such as penalty for Cruz, will be decided, should the FEC decide to initiate an “enforcement action” at a later date. But Cruz’s office said this is “old...

    Former GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz once went on “The Late Show” and asked Stephen Colbert if he could “humanize” him. Colbert was explaining to an audience at New York mag’s Vulture Festival on Saturday that audiences can “smell a prepared answer” from a politician. “I don’t want to betray my guest because there’s what happens on-camera and off-camera, but I guess it’s okay because I don’t think [Ted Cruz] understood what he was asking,” the 53-year-old host said.

    Cruz, up for reelection in 2018, is back home in Texas on a “two-week listening tour” with voters. In an interview with NBC 5 reporter Julie Fine, he explained the problem with pursuing regime change in Syria without a clear strategy or end game. "We are trapped between impossible options. On one hand, Bashar al-Assad is a monster. He has repeatedly used chemical weapons against his own citizens, against innocent men women and children. He is a bad, bad guy,” Cruz said.

  • Conspiracy Loons Unite With Cruz Zealots To Advance Social Media Campaign Against Jared Kushner

    The launch of Tomahawk missiles by President Trump has displaced the gravitational center of twitter purists, litmus nuts, conspiracy loons and the even creepier goons that orbit the remnants of the Ted Cruz #NeverTrump camp. Their latest anti-Trumpism du jour targets Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and spouse of Ivanka Trump. Every loon campaign needs a hashtag, and their chosen identifying moonbattery is scribed under #FireKushner. The concern, as it is openly expressed by those pushing the hashtag, is that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner will sneak into President Trump’s bedroom and place a pod under his bed which will...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) said Republicans should fight to get President Trump's coming Supreme Court nominee confirmed by any means necessary. Trump has said he will be announcing his choice to fill the late Antonin Scalia's seat on the bench next week. Republicans will need at least eight Democrats to support Trump's nominee to overcome the 60-vote filibuster hurdle. But Cruz suggested the GOP shouldn't rule out the so-called "nuclear option" to reduce the threshold to a majority. The move would be a gamble, setting a precedent that could weaken the GOP's position if Democrats come back into power....

    WASHINGTON — Sen. Ted Cruz is stepping up his efforts to impose term limits on Congress, calling for a constitutional amendment on the issue. The amendment, proposed Tuesday with Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis of Florida, would limit senators to two six-year terms and House members to three two-year terms. “D.C. is broken,” Cruz said in a written statement. “The American people resoundingly agreed on Election Day, and President-elect Donald Trump has committed to putting government back to work for the American people. It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington...

    Sen. Ted Cruz told Washington, DC radio host Larry O’Connor Wednesday that Donald Trump is filling his cabinet with “all-star” conservatives. The Texas Republican noted that Republicans have been handed a “historic opportunity” to do a “great deal of good” in repealing “the disaster that is Obamacare.” “It was one of the fundamental reasons why I ran for the Senate and promised the people of Texas that I would fight everyday to repeal Obamacare,” he continued. “I cannot tell you how gratifying it is to see us on the verge of delivering on that promise.” Cruz then pointed to the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) issued the following statement after the Obama administration today failed to exercise its veto to defeat a discriminatory anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations Security Council: "For eight long years, the Obama administration has worked systematically to undermine the nation of Israel. They actively worked to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu, and illegally used U.S. taxpayer funds to do so. Never has there been a more anti-Israel Administration, and today's United Nations vote is the culmination of their systemic agenda to weaken Israel and strengthen its enemies. "I agree with the senior Israeli...

    Voter fraud in Detroit naaaaaah.....In this case "no recount" may equal "protecting Democrat fraud." In a way, Michigan is a bit like California. Urban centers vote heavily for Democrats, but the rest of the state has a tendency to break for Republicans. This means a large swath of the population is, at least politically, held hostage by a few failing, very left-wing, cities. This year, the Mitten went red for the first time since 1988, but desperate Dems were hoping Jill Stein’s ridiculous recount could “find” enough votes to tip the scales in their favor. Now we have word that...
