    Someone asked this question on Quora:Is there a flaw to the American school system? Why do so many teens have depression? Why don’t people do anything about it?My answer: Okay, let’s suppose you’re a ninth-grade student in the school system. What are some reasons you might feel anxious and depressed? First, you sense from the early grades nothing very serious is going on in your school. People never really learn to read. They don’t know any geography, any history, any science. Many students can hardly add and subtract. People sometimes think that taking it easy is a good idea. Yes,...

    I wish I would have tweeted this. I have literally been mentioning this moment in history to my husband for weeks now. This is something that needs to be shouted from the rooftops because it is proof positive that the attack against the Trump administration and former National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by the Democrats and their allies in the media is nothing but manufactured outraged meant to inflict harm on Trump’s presidency. .. ------------------------ Ted Cruz ✔ ‎@tedcruz Breaking: ABC releases video of POTUS promising "more flexibility" w/ Russia after election.

  • Deadspin Tells Ted Cruz to ‘Eat Sh*t,’ After Cruz Hilariously Burns Them on Twitter

    More hilarious than all the jokes in all the land is when a liberal talking point or stereotype detonates in their face. It’s not surprising that this stereotype-shattering would occur on Twitter, where so many liberal memes go to die. Though, few would have thought Ted Cruz would be the one triggering the explosion. Politico ran a story which stated that Ted Cruz, intent on repairing frayed relationships with GOP Senators in Congress, had begun a weekly basketball game. Specifically, the piece said that Cruz had, “started a weekly basketball game in the Russell Building, for example, and has been...

    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....

    Run silent, Run deep… …until you reach a point where periscope depth is warranted as part of the plan. Many people could naturally see an evolving ideological synergy between Donald Trump and Rand Paul back in 2015. Despite some divergences on international approach, Paul and Trump have a very similar domestic pragmatic Mercerism. T-Rex sealed the deal. Today Senator Rand Paul surfaces on CNN to discuss current political events as they unfold against the background of an incoming Trump administration. Paul gives Wolf Blitzer a sad face.

    Ted Cruz was once one of Donald Trump’s most vocal critics. Now he's one of the president-elect's most important Senate allies. Ted Cruz met with Donald Trump exactly one week after Election Day. As it turned out, Cruz’s tete-a-tete with the president-elect he had spurned from the stage of the Republican National Convention just months before wasn’t the most consequential meeting he would have that day. After his talk with Trump, the Texas senator and his chief of staff, David Polyansky, then sat down with his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, who sounded him out about his interest in filling the...

    Texas Senator and former presidential candidate Ted Cruz ripped the mask off an ACLU attorney pretending to be “strictly nonpartisan” on Day 2 of Jeff Session’s confirmation hearings to be the nation’s next attorney general. David Cole, a Georgetown University law professor and national legal director at the ALCU, a communist front group, was trying to desperately smear Jeff Sessions as a racist and Ted Cruz cut him up with a butter knife, asking him why he omitted key facts from his argument that would have invalidated his argument if he were truly “strictly nonpartisan.” {.. snip ..}

    Tucker Carlson and Glenn Beck brawled over his inflammatory rhetoric on Trump, his support of Ted Cruz, what he’s learned from the election, why Clinton lost and why he thinks Trump should be given a chance. The interview starts off with Beck denying he said Cruz was “anointed” by God to be president. Beck said, “I never said he was anointed by God to be president of the United States. I do believe that people are called, all of us are, you’re called for your job, I’m called for my job, all of us are called for a specific time....

  • How Mormons Saw Romney -- In wooing evangelicals, he made some fellow LDS members uneasy

    Newsweek ^ | February 8, 2008 | Sally Atkinson
    In his pursuit of the presidency, Mitt Romney held fast to his Mormon faith, though his religion remains controversial with evangelicals and some other Christians. But his determined (and ultimately futile) wooing of evangelicals led him to make some statements that didn't quite square with Mormon beliefs and culture. And the effort itself may have deepened the impression of him as inauthentic—even to some fellow Mormons. Early in his presidential bid, Romney was asked what he thought of polygamy. Prompted by what they considered a divine revelation, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints discontinued the practice more than...

    Irksome to many scientists, creationism refuses to die. According to a recent Gallup poll, 44 percent of Americans believe that humanity did not evolve, but was created in its present form. Darwin's irresistible force seems to have met an immovable object, and the evolutionists appear blind to the reason for the standstill. They mischaracterize the debate as one between science and religion, while the question for most Americans is closer to "which science?" or "which religion?" The way many see it, the sides are neatly laid out: one appeals to scientific evidence, while the other clings to dogmatic faith. This...

    “In the final analysis (God) used evolution to set us free.” Brown University biologist Kenneth Miller used this quote from his book “Finding Darwin’s God” as a central point in his speech about simultaneously believing in evolution and religion. Miller spoke to more than 500 people Thursday evening in the Kansas Union Ballroom. He testified for the pro-evolution side in the recent lawsuit against the Dover, Pa., school district, where a federal judge ruled against the district’s teaching of intelligent design in biology classrooms. He said it was creationism in disguise. Conservatives on the Kansas State Board of Education approved...

    Philosophers, scientists and other intellectuals close to Pope Benedict will gather at his summer palace outside Rome this week for intensive discussions that could herald a fundamental shift in the Vatican's view of evolution. There have been growing signs the Pope is considering aligning his church more closely with the theory of "intelligent design" taught in some US states. Advocates of the theory argue that some features of the universe and nature are so complex that they must have been designed by a higher intelligence. Critics say it is a disguise for creationism. A prominent anti-evolutionist and Roman Catholic scientist,...
