Ted Cruz Kicks Liberals to the Curb with ‘Apology’ for his ‘New York Values’ Comment

During Thursday night’s Republican debate, there was a contentious exchange between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, in which Cruz accused Trump of holding “New York values.” Bristling at such an accurate accusation, Trump used 9/11 as a shield. Trump’s acolytes applauded, and Twitter erupted with 9/11 dedication memes–because we all know Ted Cruz hates the victims and heroes who died on 9/11. Trump’s shamefully obvious dodge was apparent to some–people with brain matter. But the world is cruel, and Read more […]

Alleged Conservatives with IQs Praise Trump’s Nauseating 9/11 Non-Answer; Say it Damaged Ted Cruz

There were a lot of punches and jabs during the Republican debate Thursday: Rubio hit Cruz with an avalanche of BS accusations in a single statement, knowing full well Cruz could never respond to even one of them in the time allotted, and Trump and Cruz duked it out over citizenship. But there was one moment that made me sick to my stomach. Not because of content, per se, but because of the reaction and applause it garnered from the audience and pundits. Moderator Maria Bartiromo asked Cruz about Read more […]

Ted Cruz is Eligible for the Presidency, Part 2

In part one, I wrote about the legal case for Ted Cruz’s “natural born” status. I’m not an attorney, but as constitutional scholars are duking it out, the people I trust–as well as some I don’t even know–continue to come down on Cruz’s side, like former Solicitors General Neal Katyal and Paul Clement, Mark Levin, and Judge Andrew Napolitano. I echoed their arguments, and I noted U.S. law, which appears quite clear. I think the left, as well as those who are trying to take a hatchet to Cruz–Trump, Read more […]

Ted Cruz is Eligible for the Presidency, Part 1

How can you tell when a candidate has Washington–as well as his opponents–wholly terrified? When it’s only January, and a candidate is as bloody as Ted Cruz. It’s a 10-on-1 prison yard fight out there, and everyone’s out to get their shiv in. This isn’t only coming from the left either. In fact, the primary thrust of the blade is coming from the Republicans. Donald Trump spearheaded the Cruz Birther movement, and others have since piled on. John McCain said it should be looked into, attorneys Read more […]

If Idiots Stop Voting for Bad People, Maybe Politics Will Change…Maybe

“I am very short-sighted, and if I don’t like a situation I take my glasses off.” – Jenny Eclair If I were to make a list of the things that bother me in the world, it would be longer than Santa’s. But for a moment, allow me to focus my attention on one particular annoyance. I hate when people dismiss politics by saying something to the effect of “Oh, well it’s all crooked anyway.” These are the people who either don’t vote, thereby contributing nothing to our democratic process, or worse, they Read more […]

Why Does Breitbart Continue to Push Trump When He’s Not a Conservative? Answer…

“Politics are very much like war. We may even have to use poison gas at times.” – Winston Churchill As one of few remaining anti-establishment websites with strong traffic, Breitbart has become the de facto leader of conservative news online. While sites like The Daily Caller, National Review, Hot Air, Town Hall, and The Washington Examiner slowly transform into mouthpieces for establishment politicians, Breitbart has remained a stalwart anti-establishment voice. Due to their aggressive push to Read more […]

Cruz Takes Trap-Question About Deportation, and Blows it Out of the Water

“No legacy is so rich as honesty.” – William Shakespeare We’ve developed into a society in which honesty is the most hated value. Honesty often acts as a knife, paring away deception that’s been carefully layered over the truth. That can be tremendously painful, and as a result, we’ve essentially let go of honesty, and replaced it with lies. We are masterful liars. We lie because it benefits us personally, or it makes the people to whom we’re lying feel better. In the end, however, a lie is damaging Read more […]

Hot Air’s Jazz Shaw Pens Ludicrous Piece Slamming Cruz for Supporting the Free Market

I feel like the Ted Cruz police. Over the last month or so, a pattern has begun to form. Ted Cruz will say or do something, and Republicans will flip out, alleging that it’s not in line with what he said or did (insert number of months or years) ago. The problem often stems from a deliberate refusal to understand what has occurred. Sometimes, this refusal is based in a simple bias against Cruz, but other times, it’s simply rooted in ignorance. Jazz Shaw, a writer for Hot Air, a website I read Read more […]

Desperate Rand Paul Supporters Attack Cruz for Saying the Same Thing Paul Said About the Oregon Standoff

Usually, when a candidate rises, and the claws come out, those claws tend to be somewhat sharp. As Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz continues to rise in the polls, the attacks coming from other Republican candidates have been shamefully weak. The claws have come out, but I think somebody forgot to sharpen them. Allow me to preface this by admitting my own bias toward Ted Cruz. I believe that Cruz is the candidate best suited to win the nomination, and defeat Hillary Clinton come November. Read more […]

Fiorina and Paul Join the Cruz-Bashing Bandwagon with Pathetic Attacks

The way we behave when we fall reveals our grace. The way we behave when we see another take our place at the top reveals our character. As the Iowa primary inches closer, and the pressure to deliver builds, the facade of each candidate is being peeled back. We’ve moved into the phase of the primary season when the attacks get sharper, and unfortunately, more dishonest. The “us against them” solidarity we saw at the beginning of the season has given way to a bitter fight for survival as money Read more […]

What’s Going to Happen at the Final Republican Debate Before Iowa

The final debate before the critical Iowa primary will be the last chance for the Republican candidates to make an impression. Thus far, the debates have been effectively weeding out weaker candidates, with several notable exceptions. Here’s what I believe will go down at the Fox Business Network debate. According to various outlets, there may be as few as six candidates on the debate stage January 14. This would leave on the stage Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, and Chris Read more […]

Huckabee Hits Cruz with Whopper Lie; Then Denies It’s a Lie

“Accuracy is the twin brother of honesty; inaccuracy, of dishonesty.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne I am profoundly disheartened by Mike Huckabee’s behavior. I was a supporter of his in 2008 because he was clearly the more conservative alternative to John McCain, but a short eight years later, he’s let me down–not because he’s polling at a paltry 1.8%, but because he was willfully dishonest when asked about a recent attack on a fellow candidate. A Super PAC supporting Mike Huckabee recently ran an ad Read more […]
