Senator Ted Cruz Gets It. Will Others?
Senator Ted Cruz has come out forcefully today against half measures on Obamacare. Instead he wants the GOP to unite behind completely defunding the law. As the Senator noted: Delaying only one aspect of this tangled mess leaves Americans holding the tab for an irreparably broken law they do not support. Moreover, it leaves in motion many of the most egregious parts of the law, | Read More »
In Which Paying Back Taxes Transforms into Winning Back Taxes
One of the biggest selling points of the gang’s immigration deform bill was the provision which would force amnestied illegals to pay back taxes. From listening to the peddlers of amnesty, one would think that the windfall to the Treasury from the taxes would be large enough to make the entire amnesty worthwhile. I’m sure you’ve heard those sleazy Zuckerberg ads playing Rubio’s speech about | Read More »
A Note on Bridging the Gap Between Conservative Theory and Practice
This post arose out of some thoughts I had after seeing Erick’s “Go Big or Go Home” post. If you haven’t read it yet, please do. Barry Goldwater’s The Conscience of a Conservative holds the distinction of being one of the few books I keep within easy reach of me in my apartment (the Bible being another one). Reading over Erick’s post reminded me of another part | Read More »
Trash Talk #cruztovictory
The media, Democrats, and senile Republicans are all after Senator Ted Cruz. This is a must watch video reminding you why and to what extend the media, Democrats, and John McCain are after the junior senator from Texas.
Support @SenTedCruz #cruztovictory
Tonight in New York, Senator Ted Cruz will participate in an event. While he is there, the radical left has organized a protest against him over his support of the second amendment. One of the things the left will do is from 5:30pm to 7pm ET today, Wednesday, May 29th, they will tweet Senator Cruz’s twitter account @SenTedCruz and also post on his Facebook page. | Read More »
Ted Cruz Takes Center Stage, Media Increases Attacks
With news Wednesday morning that Michelle Bachmann won’t be running for re-election in 2014, the left has turned their sights quickly to another target: Ted Cruz. Not that they weren’t already focused on him. The left has been foaming at the mouth over Cruz since he boldly stepped on the scene and refused to play by their crooked rules. Bachmann’s exit, however, has introduced a | Read More »
It’s the ‘Wacko Birds’ vs. the Wackos Again
If I were granted one wish about the state of today’s politics it would be for the Democrats to be saddled with their own version of John McCain. Once again, McCain is working to score points for Democrats and undermine Cruz/Paul and Lee – the “Wacko Birds” – in their attempt to prevent a free debt ceiling increase. Back in January, Republicans and conservatives got | Read More »
Ted Cruz Lays Down Gauntlet on Immigration Bill
As we’ve noted over the past few weeks, there are dozens of systemic flaws in the approach of the gang’s immigration bill. But there are two overarching problems with all of these proposals: 1) the legalization (and certainly the suspension of deportations) is immediate and certain; the enforcement measures are later and tenuous 2) it is incontrovertibly clear that granting such a low-skilled population a | Read More »
The Fearless Ted Cruz
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Senator Ted Cruz back to discuss the online sales tax bill that passed the Senate this week, the battle on Capitol Hill over immigration reform and the movement to draft Ted Cruz for a 2016 White House run.

They Wouldn’t Act This Way If Ted Cruz Weren’t Putting Points on the Board
The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board is upset with Ted Cruz for leading a filibuster against gun control. John McCain tweeted out the Journal’s editorial in a moment of wackiness. Bill Richardson, the scandal plagued former Governor of New Mexico, says Ted Cruz can’t be called hispanic despite being hispanic because Ted Cruz isn’t a race baiter like Richardson. And now Harry Reid calls Ted | Read More »
Kim Strassel Again Serves as the Senate GOP’s Stenographer
Kim Strassel somewhat diplomatically lashes out at Senator Ted Cruz in the Wall Street Journal. Her subtitle sums up her point, which really isn’t worth delving too far into. The subtitle is, “The GOP is split between those who insist on making a point, and those who want to make some progress.” Got that? So Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz want to make | Read More »
We Can Win. But Only if We Fight to Win.
“Instead of these three Senators backing down, we should be sending them reinforcements. Until then, you might want to pick up the phone, dial (202) 224-5922, and tell Ted Cruz thanks for standing up for America.” I’ve been on the road the last two days. In finally getting to emails this morning, I see a lot of people have emailed about Joe Scarborough taking on | Read More »
Ted Cruz Will Be at the RedState Gathering. Will You?
We can now announce that Texas Senator Ted Cruz will be joining us as a speaker at the 2013 RedState Gathering, being held August 2-3 in New Orleans, LA. Ted Cruz’s election to the Senate in 2012 was truly a victory for the conservative grassroots. Since then, Senator Cruz has continued to garner a national following as he’s played an important role in protecting 2nd | Read More »
Ted Cruz reaches out to grieving daughter of Sandy Hook victim.
(Via Hot Air) A couple points about this… The daughter of the Sandy Hook Elementary School principal who died in the mass killing in December could not join others from her community this week to lobby for gun control. So she turned to Twitter to reach out to the 15 senators who indicated they would engage in a filibuster to block legislation on gun control. | Read More »
