    PHOENIX — Arizona could do something in November it hasn’t done in 20 years if Donald Trump doesn’t change his tone and tenor, the state’s junior U.S. senator said Sunday: Support the Democrat presidential nominee.

    Dr. Paul Chappell personally supports Cruz for PresidentHOUSTON, Texas – Presidential candidate Ted Cruz today announced the personal endorsement of Dr. Paul Chappell, a nationally recognized leader of independent Baptist Christians."I am humbled and grateful to have the support of Dr. Chappell," said Cruz. "All across the country, people of faith are waking up to realize that their values are not being represented in Washington. I am encouraged by Dr. Chappell's leadership in getting Christians to understand that they must get involved."Cruz went on to point out that if even a fraction of evangelicals who routinely don't vote were to...
  • Ted Cruz: Solving Problems Left and Right

    11/02/2015 10:48:38 AM PST · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | November 2, 2015 | Lee Culpepper
    During CNBC's GOP debate, Ted Cruz not only demonstrated that he is the kind of problem solver the American people want, he also showed that he is the kind of leader the American people need. In the aftermath of Cruz's performance, the liberal media and establishment supporters on the right leapt in to spin mode. They've been trying to convince their audiences that the hardest-hitting response of Wednesday night was nothing more than a clever dodge to a tough question. But you can analyze Cruz's sizzling answer and its positive effects all by yourself. Cruz unveiled a dignified contempt...
  • Scott Walker, Set for a Bigger Stage, Faces G.O.P Revolt in Wisconsin

    As Gov. Scott Walker prepares to announce his campaign for president next month, promising to bring what he calls "big bold leadership" to Washington, as he did in Wisconsin, he faces a cloud over that story line: Republicans back home are in revolt. Leaders or Mr. walker's party, which controls the Legislature, are balking at his demands for the state's budget. Critics say the governor's spending blueprint is aimed more at appealing to conservatives in early-voting states like Iowa than doing what is best for Wisconsin. Lawmakers are stymied over how to pay for road and bridge repairs without raising...

    Based on House Republican documents reviewed by Breitbart News, pro-amnesty Republican freshman Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida will be delivering the Republican’s Spanish-language address in response to Obama’s State of the Union speech. Curbelo recently made waves with a January 18 interview in The Hill, which focused on his strong dissent from the basic Republican position on immigration and all but stated his support for Obama’s executive amnesty.... The Florida Republican is a vocal supporter of actions on immigration reform that many in the GOP have rejected, including a Senate-passed bill that House Republican leaders have refused to bring up...

    Breitbart ^ | 10/28/13 | Tony Lee
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) went on Fusion TV, a network which has declared it will use the airwaves to pressure lawmakers into enacting comprehensive immigration reform, and said he believes that providing a pathway to citizenship for the country's illegal immigrants is unfair to America's legal immigrants. Fusion is a joint venture between Univision and ABC that will debut on Monday, and appearing on the network, Cruz did not stray from his conservatism, telling host Jorge Ramos in an interview that he believed Democrats wanted immigration reform to be voted down so "they can campaign politically on it." He did...

    U.S. Sen. Rand Paul confirmed to reporters Monday that he and staffer Jack Hunter — the former shock jock known as the Southern Avenger — were parted ways in a “mutual decision.” Paul said he hoped that Hunter’s presence on his staff wouldn’t undermine his efforts to broaden the appeal of the Republican Party. Paul has reached out to African Americans, for instance, speaking at historically black colleges in Washington, D.C., and Louisville. “I think everybody occasionally has people that work for them who sometimes have a background that damages what you’re trying to do,” he said. “But I think...
  • Jeb Bush, arguing for immigration reform, says immigrants 'more fertile'

    Making an argument for overhauling the nation's immigration system Friday to a crowd of conservative activists, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush claimed immigrants were "more fertile" and thus a great benefit to American society. His remark appeared to be an inarticulate reference to immigrants' fertility rates, which data show are higher than native-born Americans. "Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans over the last 20 years. Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity,"

    I and others have written about Grover Norquist and his ties to unscrupulous individuals and organizations. Now Congressman Frank R. Wolf, Republican from Virginia District 10, has gone to the floor of the House of Representatives and taken Norquist to task. Congressman Wolf states, "My conscience has compelled me to come to the floor today to voice concerns I have with the influence Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, has on the political process in Washington. My issue is not with ATR’s goal of keeping taxes low. Like Ronald Reagan said, and I believe, “the problem is...

    The Atlantic ^ | August 24, 2011 | Erica Grieder
    As he enters the Republican presidential race, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is striking some red-meat notes on the subject of immigration. Border security, he says, is a federal responsibility -- and immigration reform will have to wait until the border is secured. Invoking his beloved 10th Amendment, he proposes that in the meantime states should have some latitude to set their own course on the subject. As for Texas, he suggests, unauthorized immigration will not be treated lightly; earlier this year he called for a state law to abolish sanctuary cities, although the bill never made it to his desk....

    August 20, 2011 4:00 A.M.Rick Perry Pushes Their Buttons The questions put to Governor Perry are political, not scientific. Gov. Rick Perry, pressed for his views on evolution, characterized it as “a theory” with “some gaps” in it. He went on to say that, in Texas, both conventional evolution and creationism are taught. He told a boy whose mother asked him about the subject: “In Texas, we teach both creationism and evolution in our public schools — because I figure you’re smart enough to figure out which one is right.” This is the sort of thing that drives a certain...

    Mother Jones ^ | Feb. 16, 2011 | Suzy Kim
    Facing similar slams on immigration, Republicans like Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) have flip-flopped and swerved to the right on the issue. But in an interview with Mother Jones Tuesday, Flake held fast to his previous views on immigration and suggested that he'll campaign as a social moderate—regardless of any blowback from the right. In 2006 and 2007, Flake co-authored the STRIVE Act, an immigration reform bill that included a pathway to legalization for undocumented immigrants. When asked on Tuesday by Mother Jones whether he'd still support a pathway to legalization, Flake soft-pedaled his response but defended his previous views on...

    The Wall Street Journal said a cyber attack crippled FreedomWorks’ servers on Thursday morning just as a major fundraising campaign was about to get underway. Nothing should surprise us anymore, I suppose. It’s bad enough the US Dept. of Justice has some attorneys who exempt white people from the Voting Rights Act. But the latest assault on FreedomWorks speaks to a climate of extremism dominant in much of mass media—the poli-class outlets—and spewing from the mouths of many who hold political office. FreedomWorks is often associated with the Tea Party movement. It’s a sad day when someone who has served...

    Sarah Palin tells Barack Obama to apologize to the 15 million jobless Americans, Americans who are jobless largely due to his policies. At a rally to get Republicans to come out to vote in the less-than-two-weeks-away midterms, Palin used an effective mixture of cold, hard facts and well-placed humor to cut down Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and anything Democrat-affiliated. Her fiery speech at the Marriott World Center in Orlando was intended to mobilize GOP party officials, activists and volunteers to go out and canvass local, Florida neighborhoods for the November elections. Unlike the amnesty-supporting Democrats in Washington State, however, you...
  • Democrats Behind Tea Party Cyber Attacks?

    Speculation is rife that Democrat activists or even the Obama administration itself may have been responsible for an attack which brought down a prominent Tea Party website right as the organization targeted was running a major fund-raising drive and on the day after Obama directed the Pentagon to attack “cyberthreats” within the United States. The FreedomWorks website was attacked at 6:55am yesterday morning as the organization’s server was penetrated and completely wiped out by a “sophisticated hacker” on the very day of the group’s donation drive to support Tea Party candidates running in the imminent mid-term elections. The attack also...
