ITIN de facto amnesty empowers Obama IRS to buy votes
Outraged that illegal aliens claimed child-tax-credits, but no outrage that current tax law allows them to report income and pay taxes without threat of deportation? The power of a president to succumb to the temptation to use executive power for political purposes has always been available. That the current occupant of the Oval Office is so uniquely brazen in betraying the trust inherent in the | Read More »
2016 and Cruz: Should we?
A lot of Republicans griped that the shutdown took away from their idea of the story to harp, on, the failed rollout of the Healthcare.gov site. Once again, the establishment would rather let people suffer than try to help them, which is possibly the exact opposite of what governing should be. It is only through the efforts of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee that a | Read More »
Cruz, Lee and me, the new RINOs…and proudly so
This gamecock thinks it’s time that tea partier and other conservatives in the GOP started referring to ourselves as RINOs, and proudly so, unless and until the majority of elected Republicans in Congress use the means that the Constitution provides to try to achieve conservative ends. To label a fellow member of the GOP as a “Republican in name only” is to question their commitment to | Read More »
Merely maintaining sequester cuts no GOP victory
Non-tea partying Senate Republicans insisted upon cruising to debt limit and government shutdown-showdown defeat after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) dared prevent the raising of the white flag on their exclusive clubs floor for over 22 hours. And no amount of postmortem-spin of the sequester status quo can deny McCains and McConnells their latest longed-for losses at President Obama’s hands. George Will was right to describe the sequester | Read More »

Ted Cruz demonstrates what ‘walking the walk’ looks like
No more Conservative in the primary and moderate in the general. This is how ALL Senate Republicans should be talking, and walking right now. This man is doing what he was elected to do, and I for one wish Georgia had a Senator like him. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/power-players-abc-news/ted-cruz-faults-his-party-for-agreeing-to-lousy-deal-to-reopen-the-government-211727075.html
Putting Ted Cruz Birtherism To Rest
There have been many questions regarding the Presidential eligibility of Ted Cruz. They must be answered.

Tech at Night: Team Obama pirates software. Ted Cruz wants answers on FCC.
Seen on RedState Friday: Geoffrey Manne talks about FCC rigging the spectrum game, which is such a shame since spectrum auctions are one of the greatest regulatory innovations we’ve seen.
I bet you heard all there was to hear about Ted Cruz after the shutdown ended? Nope. He’s taking on the President’s nominee for FCC Chairman, Tom Wheeler. He wants answers, and he’s entitled to get them.
Bitcoin and crime just seem to go hand-in-hand.

The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. Of all the services that the government performs, which ones are considered “essential”? Which ones stay operating even during a shutdown? Here’s an example of one, and in fact, it’s a service that is active only during a shutdown. What if they held a recess and nobody played? A school is banning | Read More »

Advancing. Ever Advancing.
Much cynicism has been expressed over the past month about the effort, led by Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, to fight Obamacare. It was about money or defeating Republicans or something other than what it was about — undermining Obamacare with a united front. It was always about undermining Obamacare, despite the claims of others. But, those of us who were in this fight against | Read More »
Ted Cruz is Doing the Right Thing
Some conservatives are complaining that Ted Cruz will not filibuster the debt ceiling increase in the Senate.He is doing the right thing.While you and I and he and everyone else knows the debt ceiling issue will not actually throw us into default, we must remember low information voters and the media. The media will report that Ted Cruz has single handedly thrown the nation into | Read More »
Building a Coalition Out of Chaos
It’s hard for me to even calculate the amount of words that have been used to debate the merits of defund vs delay vs some other strategy. The amount of energy complaining about Ted Cruz or the amount of flyers calling for John Boehner’s head have reached apocalyptic proportions . Truly things are a mess. And no doubt, each faction believes some other faction is | Read More »
On Leadership: Winston Churchill & Ted Cruz

I’m with Stupid
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com The bad news for the Obama Administration is the Obamacare rollout is every bit the train wreck Max Baucus said it would be. The good news is nobody knows about it, except for the millions who have lost their insurance thanks to Obamacare reforms. Everyone else is distracted by the Republican-led government shutdown.
