Cruz Hosts Secret Meeting for House Conservatives (Updated)

cruz 260 042914 445x335 Cruz Hosts Secret Meeting for House Conservatives (Updated)

(Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call)

Updated 6:37 p.m. | Sen. Ted Cruz gathered a group of House conservatives in his office Tuesday night, talking about immigration and House GOP leadership elections slated for after the midterm elections.

As CQ Roll Call first reported last October, Cruz held a secret meeting with members at Tortilla Coast during the height of the government shutdown drama. Many of these same Republicans are the agitators who aren’t happy with Speaker John A. Boehner.

The Texas Republican gathered roughly 10 members of the GOP Conference at 8 p.m. Tuesday for a 90-minute session that included candy bars, crackers and soda. Cruz’s office would not give further details, calling the pow-wow a “private meeting.”

 


 

And members were reluctant to spill the beans on just who attended the session, or to gab about what was discussed. But Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama described Cruz as a “facilitator” while the group “talked about a variety of different public policy issues.”

“It was no agenda, spontaneous discussion,” Brooks told CQ Roll Call, later calling it a “rap session” and a “free-for-all.”

He said immigration — and new proposals being floated after Boehner mocked some of his members over the issue — was a major topic. Brooks said Boehner’s comments were “astonishing” and that the Cruz group “naturally” discussed them.

Brooks said his view is that Republicans needed “more diversity” in leadership.

“Right now, we have the top four leaders in the House, none of them are from a Mitt Romney state; all of them are from an Obama state. That’s not diversity. None of the four are from the conservative half of the GOP conference,” he said.

Also attending the Cruz meeting was Jim Jordan of Ohio. Jordan would only tell CQ Roll Call the group discussed “issues, what’s happening, all the bases,” and he downplayed its significance. He refused to say who else was there, or how many lawmakers were in the room.

Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, a vocal Boehner critic who was present for that Tortilla Coast meeting last fall, tweeted a cryptic note Tuesday. He wrote he had “another great meeting @TortillaCoast,” affixing the hashtag “#revolution” to the tweet. Turns out he was there for a rather innocuous fundraiser for Ken Buck, who is running for Colorado GOP Rep. Cory Gardner’s seat while Gardner runs for Senate.

But Huelskamp would not say if he attended the Cruz confab.

“We were at a lot of places,” he said. “I’m not at liberty — I might have to admit to my wife some of those meetings I go to, so, no, I can’t say.”

Several House Republicans told CQ Roll Call they were invited to Cruz’s meeting but, for a variety of reasons, did not attend. Those lawmakers included Louie Gohmert of Texas, Cynthia M. Lummis of Wyoming, Trent Franks of Arizona and Marlin Stutzman of Indiana.

(For those keeping track, there were 12 Republicans who didn’t vote for Boehner as speaker the last time: Gohmert, Huelskamp, Justin Amash of Michigan, Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma, Paul Broun of Georgia, Walter B. Jones of North Carolina, Raúl R. Labrador of Idaho, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina, Steve Pearce of New Mexico, Steve Stockman of Texas and Ted Yoho of Florida.)

Cruz has been repeatedly taking aim at Republican leaders for failing to fight hard enough, in his view, for conservative principles. He participated Tuesday evening in a tele-town hall with ForAmerica, a conservative group run by Brent Bozell. The group has been pressing for Republicans to get rid of their leadership teams in both chambers using the hashtag #dumptheleadership.

Cruz helped rally the right against moving an immigration bill this year after Boehner released the GOP leadership’s immigration principles in January, playing the “amnesty” card and saying doing so would help keep Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in the Senate. That prompted several of Boehner’s allies to suggest Cruz mind his own business in the Senate, blaming him for the shutdown.

Cruz told ForAmerica that the showdown over Obamacare resulted in poor ratings in the polls for President Barack Obama and the health care law.

And when asked how they can help Cruz get Republican leaders to stay true to their promises, Cruz called for “a grass-roots tsunami.”

“If you look to Washington, you will be nothing but demoralized and despondent,” Cruz said. “The greatest divide we have in this country is between entrenched politicians in both parties and the American people.”

Those entrenched politicians “aren’t listening and they’re not going to,” Cruz said.

“We need to make it politically more risky to do the wrong thing,” he said.

            The most direct attack on America is the expansion of legal immigration to this country. Almost half the people currently living in the US are here as a result of the Immigration Reform Act of 1965. The work and student visa program, green cards and refugee programs make illegal immigration look puny, even though it is far higher than admitted by the government.

            Contrary to the current meme, our country was not founded by immigrants – it was founded by colonists that forged a new country out of the wilderness for themselves and their posterity. It is our inheritance and
            it is being sacrificed at the table of political correctness, just as surely as Esau gave up his inheritance for a pot of stew, Americans are giving up their inheritance for the porridge of a false self-righteousness of “multiculturalism” that is nothing but the death of the American way of life and freedom.

            These brainwashed Eurotrash socialists and third world bottom-feeders have no history or tradition of natural rights, and in fact have never heard of the concept, or understand that the Constitution was an attempt to codify those natural God-given rights. They do not understand what our Founders understood – that men who are drawn to centers of power are by nature the worst among us, and that laws are needed to keep them in check. They do not understand or respect that the Constitution was
            written as a witness against the fallen nature of man, and that it is as timeless man’s nature, which has not changed, and will not be out-dated until that nature has become angelic.

            The descendants of America’s founders are being replaced with a foreign people, and this was by design. The American gun-owning, freedom-loving middle-class was the biggest obstacle to One-World-Government-equally-distributed-misery plans of the international bankster cartel. It was no accident that American wages
            started stagnating in 1970 and have decreased ever since. Simple supply and demand. Since that wasn’t enough, more jobs were moved overseas and more foreigners were moved in to take the jobs still here.

            Ben Johnson said this about the The 1965 Immigration Act in an article for FrontPageMagazine in 2002:

            The 1965 Immigration Act: Anatomy of a Disaster By: Ben Johnson | Tuesday, December 10, 2002

            “Despite the overwhelming assurances of the bill’s supporters, the 1965 Immigration Reform Act has remade society into the image its critics most feared. Immigration levels topping a million a year will increase
            U.S. population to 400 million within 50 years. Meanwhile, exponents of multiculturalism insist new arrivals make no effort to assimilate; to do so would be “genocidal,” a notion that makes a mockery of real genocides. Instead, long-forgotten grudges are nursed against the white populace. Native citizens take to flight as the neighborhoods around them, the norms in their hometowns, are debased for the convenience of low-paid immigrants and well-heeled businessmen. All the while, indigenous paychecks drop through lower wages and higher taxes collected to provide social services for immigrants. And this only takes into account legal immigration.

            “Americans must realize demographic trends are not inevitable, the product of mysterious forces beyond their control. Today’s population is the result of yesterday’s immigration policy, and that policy is as clearly broken as its backers’ assurances were facetious. A rational
            policy will only come about when native Americans place the national interest above liberal howls of ‘prejudice’ and ‘tribalism.’”

            Its only gotten worse since Ben penned this article.

            At a time when unemployment is at an all time high, “Conservative” Senator Ted Cruz wants to expand legal immigration, most of who will vote Democrat or Big Government Republican once they get here and take your job.

            This is a war against the American People and Culture, and the Americans are losing badly and don’t even understand why. Most Americans blame only illegal immigration which is a fraction of the problem, and miss
            the bigger picture of legal immigrants.

            I often hear people ask the question of how America became such a divided Nation. Now you know. Americans have purchased so many firearms that many manufacturers of military pattern semi-automatic rifles are back ordered for a year or more, and ammunition has doubled in price, when you can find it, and there are now at least 100 million gun owners in the US. DHS has purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammunition and
            “assault rifles” for personal protection. America is preparing for a civil war, and to deny it is whistling past the graveyard of history.

            There should be no immigration reform that is not BASED SOLELY ON REPATRIATION of illegal aliens and ELIMINATION OF MAGNETS, anything else is doomed to fail from the start. The incentive to invade our country for gain must be removed. being given ANY SORT of legal status is the BIGGEST MAGNET OF ALL.
            If they have nothing to gain they wont come, and if here already, will leave.No matter how you parse words, if it is not repatriation, it IS amnesty.
            Eliminate the magnets and enforce laws and most will not need to be “rounded up”. Did they have to be “rounded up” and brought here? no they didn’t. just make it more miserable for them here than it is in the countries they are citizens of and they will go back to wherever they came from. it may not be accomplished overnight, but its been going on for decades.
            IMMIGRATION REORM: repeal Kennedys 1965 immigration law, stop legal immigration until REAL unemployment is below 3%, prosecution of and loss of federal funding to sanctuary cities, allow state and local law enforcement of immigration laws, fines and prosecutions for employers of illegals, no anchor babies, end chain migration, no state, federal or local “entitlements” and welfare reform. e-verify for: jobs, housing, school, hospitals, utilities, banking etc…everything in English and active repatriation with forfeiture of assets if caught here while illegal and if ever caught here illegally, you can never return under ANY circumstance.
            There should be no immigration reform that is not BASED SOLELY ON REPATRIATION of illegal aliens and ELIMINATION OF MAGNETS, anything else is doomed to fail from the start.

            Obama increased the national debt by 7 trillion, it will be much higher as obamacare continues to grow.

          • Cue Ememvee

            Incorrect. It did rise a lot during his tenure, BUT a HUUUUUUGE chunk of that was due to depressed revenues from you hero Bush’s utter failures and unfettered spending of Bush’s wars. The stimulus was about 750bil, but you know what? That was about IT.

            C’mon, senile old man, point out how else Obama increased the debt by NEW spending. Know what? You won’t be able to. Know why? Because it there’s nothing to point out, other than the stimulus…which worked.

          • Craggy old conservative

            You need to take a course in economics 101. You are confusing the annual deficit with the national debt.
            The national debt or total we owe on all our obligations is now 17trillion. When Bush left office it was 9t and some change. On Obama’s watch the nat debt increased almost 8 trillion.

            The annual deficit is a match up between ANNUAL revenue to ANNUAL expenses. The annual deficit when Bush left was 686 B. Today it is 786 B. Not much different.

            I hope all this doesn’t hurt your little brain. Liberals are pretty ignorant and stupid when it comes to finance and economics. They excell at collecting welfare and free stuff and protesting.

            You obviously have no idea what Fascism IS. You can thank Hussein Obama in spades for it. While he rants against the 1%, who does he hang with? Hussein’s religion, Islam, and the govt are definitely intertwined. “Corporate power is protected” You bet! He makes sure his corporate cronies/donors are definitely protected. How much taxpayer money has been and continues to be thrown away on “green projects”? “Rampant corruption”? He and his administration — poster children for criminality. Fraudulent elections — are you joking? The Dims/Socialists/Communists are the masters of fraud. Rampant sexism? I know, he’s so “for women”… for women to abort what would be their families or spit out unwanted children since more children means more welfare, “for” women to reduce themselves to going before Congress to complain about having to pay for their own contraception. Really keeps them on the high ground, doesn’t he? “Disdain for human rights” — would that be kinda like letting 4 Americans be massacred rather than answer their cries for help, or maybe it’s killing Americans with drones w/o any warrant at all. No, surely it must be the folks dying of cancer who have been forced off their health care plans and lost their doctors, and can’t afford his “Affordable Healthcare”, so they simply DIE. And I’m sure he was thinking about human rights when he instituted the IPAB (Death Panel) to decide if a person is YOUNG ENOUGH AND PRODUCTIVE enough for their govt to deserve to live, after all, “resources must be considered”. So they’ve worked 40-50 years and paid into the govt, but as Hellary says “what difference does it make”. Well, we all feel better now!

            What has absolutely infuriated me is the Bundy invasion BY the armed Feds with snipers on the hill and yet this administration obviously led by one of the most crooked Senators, Dirty Harry Reid, yet FAILED to send even ONE SOLDIER to help out the now four dead Americans in Benghazie or put armed guards to protect our borders from terrorists, illegals and drug cartels. This invadion of a Ranchers property, killing his cattle and NOW I understand a Rancher in Texas has lost 130 acres of his ranch TO this government which has been owned by his family for generations. NO MORE AMNESTY – CLOSE OUR BORDERS. I thought there was a clause in the Constitution to protect peoples private property- I guess we are seeing AGENDA 21 in action. How is it that Dirty Harry is now a multi-millionaire from his time in the Senate????

          • stevenharnack

            You mean the Bundy invasion of public land and his refusal to pay the legal rents for the use of that land which he has been ordered to do by every court that he has been before? If you had squatters living but not paying rent on a property that belonged to you who would you expect to remove them? You “constitutionalists” are aware that under the Constitution the U.S. military is enjoined from law enforcement inside the country? No, I doubt that you actually know very much about anything. And by the way, here’s another thing that I guess that you don’t know; your nemesis Harry doesn’t have it within his powers to send anybody anywhere.

            Today in the United States, 22 million Americans want, but cannot find,full-time jobs. Among Americans with only a high school education, one in five (20%) cannot find full-time work.
            Among Hispanic Americans with only a high school education, 36 percent cannot find full-time work.
            Among Black Americans with only a high school education, 40 percent cannot find full-time work.
            Among American teens—16 and 17 year olds—40 percent cannot find full-time jobs. And yet, today in the United States, because our government has abdicated its duty to enforce immigration laws, an estimated 7 million non-agricultural jobs are held by illegal aliens. The vast majority of these illegal aliens have no more than a high school education.
            In addition, our government currently grants permanent work permits to an average of 75,000 working-age legal immigrants every single month, under the most generous legal immigration policy in the world. About half of these immigrants have no more than a high school education.
            How is it morally or civically acceptable for the U.S. government to not just ignore the plight of 22 million Americans who desperately need jobs, but to actively pursue a policy that actually imports more workers to compete with them for scarce jobs, and that drives down wages?
            How is it morally or civically just to import large numbers of foreign workers at the expense of native-born minorities?

            How is it morally or civically right to import foreign labor and thereby deny our own young people the entry-level jobs they need to develop a work ethic and begin to climb the economic ladder?
            It simply is not moral or civically responsible to offer the American Dream to mass numbers of foreigners at the cost of denying it to the most vulnerable of our fellow Americans.

            Don’t give me that crap people can’t find jobs or there’s no jobs out there. There’s jobs everywhere. I see labor/ construction worker/restaurant/mechanic/nursing help wanted signs everywhere around here. Every restaurant I visit has help wanted signs. It’s not that there’s no jobs, it’s the people looking for jobs are too freakin lazy the retool, move to another state where the jobs are or are just too lazy to look. I had a booth at a job fare two months ago. You want to work for me, you better dress nice, be personable, write correctly and have a four year degree. I had ONE person meet that criteria. I had people step up to my booth with facial metal on, tat’s, torn pants, and no resumes.. One idiot even walk by with a skateboard. These are the unemployed you’re all taking about. These people should be ashamed. These type of people will NEVER have a job over $10-$15/hr. Until they understand the way they dress and look will never get them a good job, they’ll just be another statistic for you to all whine about…..

          • garyinaz66

            yeah right. if it wasn’t for the import of millions of illegal foreign invaders to drop wages, which you are looking for you might have to open your wallet to find good employees
            you just want slave labor from illegal foreign invaders. the only thing I will grant you is welfare needs to be reformed so able bodied people must work to get by

            the cheap foreign labor is the biggest threat to our citizenry. we are becoming third world thanks to the declining wages and standards of living. not to mention the huge increases in welfare/foodstamp/Medicaid etc… caused by the invasion

            Moral and responsible doesn’t apply to those who took oaths to protect and defend America. Their “allegiance” goes to the highest bidder. The Founding Fathers must be turning over in their graves — continually.

          • manthelifeboats

            Unfortunately I hail from and live in the state that spawned that bill in 1965. your point is very, very much under the radar. Many conservative politicians and those in the electorate must bend the knee when talking about amnesty and illegals and resort to pc ; I’m all for legal immigration attitude or a statement of how diversity made us great. very few commentators and virtually no pols will go where Pat Buchanan has gone; that there should be a moratorium on the issue of ALL immigration with a cessation of even legal immigration for 20 to 30 years. THIS measure, though radical, outlandish and xenophobic to most, is what is needed to correct our imbalances, as well as deportation, withdrawal of troops from around the world to defend the borders and total cessation of amnesty proposals. a stronger, more balanced U.S. can be a bigger factor in world peace and world prosperity than this divided, corrupt welfare state and polyglot hell hole.

          • garyinaz66

            the bottom line is, illegals are natural demokkkrats and amnesty is anti-American citizen and because of the 1965 act, legal immigrants are virtually the same.
            illegals are an amalgam of big govt socialist/Marxist/communist, naturally aligning them with the demokkkrats party philosophy. facts and statistics are stubborn things.
            Hispanics are less likely to go to church or be employed than non-Hispanics. They are less opposed to gay marriage than everyone else — 44 percent compared to 50 percent. (By contrast, 55 percent of African-Americans oppose gay marriage, according to a 2012 Washington Post/ABC poll — even more, according to how they vote.) Hispanics have the highest illegitimate birthrate in the country. According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2010, for every 1,000 unmarried Hispanic women, 80.6 had children out of wedlock, compared to 65.3 for unmarried black women and 29 for unmarried white women. Pew Research reports that 83% of first-generation Latinos express preference for big government, dropping only to 71% for the second generation. In comparison, Asian immigrants’ numbers are 57% and 47%, the latter much closer to the general public’s preference of only 39%.”"Specifically, according to IBD, August 9, 2012, new census data reveal that 43% of all immigrants remain on welfare 20 years after arriving in the U.S., a devastating statistical indictment of our current immigration policies.”"Tellingly, the third-generation Hispanic has a lower median income than the first. More troubling, many Chicanos actually disdain assimilation”

          • stevenharnack

            Actually the fact is that all previous amnesties have been Republican projects, so blaming Democrats/socialists/Marxists/etc./etc. is about as far off base as you can get. But then you wouldn’t let a little thing like facts shake your beliefs, would you?

            GREAT comments ! One of the few responsibilities of the federal gov’t, as spelled out in the Constitution, is BORDER CONTROL…Before we had 3 branches of the military, before we had the FBI/ATF/NSA/CIA/DHS, we had the BORDER PATROL…

          • stevenharnack

            And what a proud history they have! Formed exclusively to enforce the racist Chinese Exclusion Act that banned any Chinese from entering the U.S. Also you’re going to have to cite the provision in the constitution that deals with border control. When the constitution was written our borders were still rather fluid and all that you had to do to become an American was to arrive here.

          • garyinaz66

            ALL politicians wanting our votes need to sign the FAIR promise to protect American workers like Chris McDaniel did.
            http://fairtaskforce.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/FCTF_questionnaire.pdf

            I urge voters NOT to support any candidate who will not do so, be you a Democrat, Independent, Republican etc…..amnesty is choosing illegal foreign invaders over American citizens. Choose Americans first.

            Supporting amnesty of ANY form, takes jobs from American Citizens and food out of their families mouths. There is no denying this fact and there is no middle ground. Amnesty is anti-American Citizen.

            American workers are facing desperate economic conditions. Wages have plummeted while millions of Americans have been pushed out of the labor force entirely. Youth unemployment is sky-high. Decades of record immigration have placed enormous stress on American jobseekers, taxpayers and communities. Yet politicians in Washington who claim to oppose “comprehensive immigration reform” are pushing legislation that would not only legalize millions of illegal workers but give mega-corporations millions of new foreign workers — depressing wages and reducing jobs for American workers. It is therefore essential that we know whether you will support TRUE immigration reform policies. http://fairtaskforce.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/FCTF_questionnaire.pdf

            American Jobs for American citizens
            this is about whats best for American citizens vs whats best for illegal foreign invaders.
            Today in the United States, 22 million Americans want, but cannot find,full-time jobs. Among Americans with only a high school education, one in five (20%) cannot find full-time work.
            Among Hispanic Americans with only a high school education, 36 percent cannot find full-time work.
            Among Black Americans with only a high school education, 40 percent cannot find full-time work.
            Among American teens—16 and 17 year olds—40 percent cannot find full-time jobs. And yet, today in the United States, because our government has abdicated its duty to enforce immigration laws, an estimated 7 million non-agricultural jobs are held by illegal aliens. The vast majority of these illegal aliens have no more than a high school education.
            In addition, our government currently grants permanent work permits to an average of 75,000 working-age legal immigrants every single month, under the most generous legal immigration policy in the world. About half of these immigrants have no more than a high school education.
            How is it morally or civically acceptable for the U.S. government to not just ignore the plight of 22 million Americans who desperately need jobs, but to actively pursue a policy that actually imports more workers to compete with them for scarce jobs, and that drives down wages?
            How is it morally or civically just to import large numbers of foreign workers at the expense of native-born minorities?

            How is it morally or civically right to import foreign labor and thereby deny our own young people the entry-level jobs they need to develop a work ethic and begin to climb the economic ladder?
            It simply is not moral or civically responsible to offer the American Dream to mass numbers of foreigners at the cost of denying it to the most vulnerable of our fellow Americans

            A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can
            no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague. ~Cicero

            Of course, the law really doesn’t carry his name, but don’t let that fact get in the way. And to think, he tweaked the law to make it work better, so millions of American citizens can actually get affordable health care insurance. Isn’t that terrible? I’ll take that over going to war illegally any day. And why would the new immigrants have to be Democrats, I ask? Maybe because they see who treats them like human beings.

          • La Billyboy

            Sadly, that isn’t true.

            the Obama Admin. started cooking the books by double counting those who were caught at the border and then deported later. They also counted “turn arounds” those who never make it into the country but are just turned around and not processed. Those illegals have never been counted before. So they have created an illusion that they are deporting millions when in fact, they are not.

          • mikem42

            It’s always “cooking the books” when the numbers don’t go your way. Just like the signups for Obama care.

          • Seabass120

            Wrong. They get reported twice when one agency hands off the illegal to the other. They are definitely cooking the books.

            That’s what I thought, it’s coming right out of your pocket. Well, the undocumented immigrants who work here and get paid by the business owners actually pay taxes, and the ss taxes go into the fund, and they never get credit for them, rightfully so.

            It is widespread fact that obamunists were counting border crossing turnarounds as deportations.

            Unless obama’s sleepin, he’s lyin. He and his junta know they’ve hurt the country, that they’ve been feckless flops at governing, so now are permanently in that ugly place where new lies are concocted to cover old lies, metrics are altered to remeasure their failures.

            Exactly! And anyone with limited accounting backround can make any numbers look good. For example, we have more people out of work, more people on food stamps, more people on Medicade, less tax revenue coming in and still Obana says we’re recovering from the recession and every democrat in the country starts nodding like a cheap bobble head!!! What a joke! They lie, steal and cheat and refuse to quit and why should they? It’s bonus time! Oh, I forgot, they give themselves pay raises, throw great parties and give themselves golden bonuses! What a freakin deal!

          • La Billyboy

            Yes, today we find that of the miraculous 7.100000 million sign ups, only 62% actually paid the premium… is THAT what you are referring to?

          • mikem42

            Miraculous you say? You can’t believe that all these and more need affordable health insurance, so it has to be a myth. Your facts are wrong, and even if they weren’t, the over 4 million you say paid is a big improvement in their lives. Why don’t you want everyone to have health insurance? What kind of country do you want here for your family and friends and neighbors?

          • La Billyboy

            Hey dumba$$ my facts are facts, you don’t have any. I don’t care who has health insurance. Nobody in this country has ever been turned away from medical CARE, it is against the law. The “insurance” you get under Obamakare has a $4000 or greater deductible… on top of monthly dues… none of these poor people can afford that.

            This was sold based on insuring 40 million who supposedly didn’t have insurance (less than 10% of the population) many by choice BTW. For $2 trillion we could have written each of them a $50,000 check… with only 4 million… that’s $500,000 each… Exactly why the Federal Gov’t should never do anything.

            I do care that Obama and the Krats just spent $2 trillion to insure 4 million people, most of whom already had insurance but had to drop it due to the stupid law…. less than a million people who didn’t have insurance signed up and paid…

      • Disgruntled2012

        Congratulations on the STUPIDEST comment of the day!

        The Irish and the Italians and the Germans immigrated to this country LEGALLY! In the past, we’ve had periods of large-scale immigration, and somehow our government managed to enforce our immigration and labor laws. Even today, immigrants from Europe have to jump through hoops to immigrate to America.

        The illegal aliens who are in this country today are here because the government has REFUSED to enforce existing immigration and labor laws! And only an idiot would claim that, since there are already 10s of millions of illegal aliens here today, the only possible solution it to IMPORT 40 million more over the next decade! That’s like saying that my house is infested by ants. Since it’s not possible to hunt down every single ant and through them out of my house, the only possible solution is to pour sugar all over my floors and invite MORE ants in!

        Stupid. Just… stupid.

      • R Sr Simon

        The Irish and Italians and Germans assimilated into the American culture fool. That’s the difference.

          And Latinos don’t??

          • ToolSlayer

            Well kinda… I mean if you wanna resemble Chicago, Detroit, LA et al.

            In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.
            There are currently over 400,000 unaccounted for illegal alien criminals with outstanding deportation orders. At least one fourth of these are hard core criminals.
            80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets. Based on studies they will commit an average of 13 serious crimes per perpetrator.
            Illegal aliens are involved in criminal activities at a rate that is 2-5 times their representative proportion of the population.
            In 1980, our Federal and state facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens but at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in U.S. correctional facilities at a cost of about $6.8 billion per year.
            At least 4.5 million pounds of cocaine with a street value of at least $72 billion is smuggled across the southern border every year. ..
            56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.
            Illegal aliens charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. 90% had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, 50% had been arrested for violent or drug-related felonies.
            Illegal aliens commit between 700,000 to 1,289,000 or more crimes per year.

        • mikem42

          Where I live, which is mostly farming and poultry growing, these new immigrants have assimilated quite nicely, and provide labor so you can have all the chicken you want, and they pay taxes and add greatly to the purchasing power of our region. They attend our churches and have some of the best kids around. All humans have dignity, and some large companies around here realize that, and so do I. Fool.

The same life today’s immigrants would like. And if you want to compare your service to the country, we’ll see who would be “sent back”. You folks always want to go back, but progressives want to move forward. Nice choice, loser.

          • emiliani

            Once again, folks like you can’t take a smack/joke. And once again angry, pointless folks like you set up straw men to knock down … I guess to prove your pretend intellect. No one has ever said everyone must go back to their country of origin. No one. You argue against a point no one is making. Nice job, Seamus. You’ve been watching Obama too long; this is one of his favorite argument techniques: arguing against things no one is saying to make his own inanities sound profound.

            What people HAVE said, however, is that the United States, as an independent country, is allowed to set the parameters and means whereby immigrants can gain admission and recognition in the country. I guess adopting immigration laws like those of every other country in the world just seems so draconian and intolerant to liberal-minded folks like you. Do yourself a favor: try moving to Germany without authorization and apply your kids to public school … or to Mexico and try to buy a plot of land or use their “free” public healthcare … or just about anywhere else.

            And whether “going back” is always the right or wrong thing, I guess I’ll let you ask the passengers on the Malaysian flight whether they would have thought that a bad idea. And don’t think we’re too far off from the comparison: because a lot of mad-capped pilots in this country are intent on flying us out to nowhere because they’re in the cockpit and have an inch to do something novel. There is one difference, however; they didn’t have folks like you cheerleading them on!!

          • mikem42

            Okay, I get it. You’re a paranoid conspiratorial type. I on the other hand, am a very unangry citizen who isn’t out to ruin our government and way of life, as I kind of like it. You don’t say what you would like or would do to improve your lot in life, but only attack progressives, or liberals if you prefer. We’re really not your enemy; I believe you are your own worst enemy. Good luck and goodby from a left wing, Irish Catholic, Democrat and U.S. Navy veteran with many kids and grandkids who have to have a future here. There are a lot of us and we aren’t going “back” to anywhere.

          • emiliani

            Hmm, Democratic Catholic, huh? Interesting. I wonder if ole St. Patty or St. Malachy — or even Timothy Dolan — would agree with your support of a political party that puts Abortion and Birth Control on center stage for their election prospects? Don’t worry, Mike. It sounds like everything’s going great for you. You might want to take this issue up with your confessor (later this afternoon) or spiritual director, however. I wonder how you’d feel about a Catholic who supported KKK candidates? You’d probably be fine with it … and yet something worse than racism is polluting your party: infanticide!!! Wake up.

          • mikem42

            As usual, you are so wrong it hurts. Our party doesn’t put abortion and birth control on center stage, the right does that. And the issue is such a red herring as you know. My soul knows what I believe, and I don’t confuse sin unlawfulness. Joe Biden doesn’t support or believe in abortion, but feels he has no right to tell others who don’t have that religious objection how to live their lives. I agree with that. The way Republicans treat the poor and downtrodden, the immigrant and women is the greater sin. The chase for gold at the expense of those in need is abhorrent to me. The Iraq war which killed hundreds of thousands was evil, and fought for control of oil fields. I am i

          • emiliani

            This is always what happens to Democratic Catholics, which is why I gave you your due warning: Democratic Catholics lie, they dissemble, they disgrace themselves, and they pervert and betray our faith for the most base, atrocious reasons.
            Mike, Joe Bidden isn’t allowed to take communion anymore because of his abortion stance. He freely admits he’s at odds with the Catholic Church, which redounds a bit to his credit. You’re making excuses for a guy who doesn’t even bother to make those very excuses. You’re walking on very thin water, my brother. You’ve bought the lie; you’ve accepted the deception because it suits your political agenda…but never include your Catholic Faith — my Catholic Faith — in your wretched error and sin. It would be better for you to keep your big yapper shut than spread lies and calumny about our Church’s teaching. You may want to review the words of Jesus about the potential consequences for scandal.
            I won’t judge your eternal destiny, Mike; but I will warn you that believing the way you do endangers your soul — you are on very precarious grounds. If your confessor isn’t telling you this, he’s doing you a very grave disservice, and you might want to find a better confessor. Just go ahead and tell him that you said a neutral stance on abortion is consistent with the Catholic position.
            And I always love people like you whose absolute hypocrisy couldn’t be broadcast more loudly!!! But of course, you completely miss your own myopia. You say that you don’t judge others in the very SAME post that you judge the inner heart and intentions of Republicans toward the poor!! I wouldn’t believe people like you exist … except I’ve met many of you over my life.
            I’ll bet one thing: I’ll bet you don’t say your rosary anymore.

          • mikem42

            Your problem isn’t with Democrat Catholics, it’s with Democrats. I’ll set you straight on a couple of your misconceptions. I grew up in Delaware with Joe Biden, went to school and played sports with him. He was an outstanding athlete, and a better person. His mom took us kids to confession every Saturday, whether we needed it or not. I’m a minister of the Holy Eucharist, Knight of Columbus, completed my Easter Duty, as well as the Novena for the Chaplet of Divine Mercy Sunday. Carry my rosary in each vehicle and say it every day. Joe Biden had a meeting with the Bishop many years ago about his beliefs, and in fact can and does receive communion. He works tirelessly for the middle class and women of the country to help end the suppression and mistreatment of all. My Catholic faith sustains me, even against misanthropes like yourself, and yet I pray for you even as you continue your attacks on me and other progressive folks. BTW, one of the gifts to our granddaughter last Sunday was a rosary, for her First Holy Communion. Don’t dare lecture me again. Disagree if you want, but stay out of my faith and how I live it.

          • emiliani

            Listen, forgive my rash comments. They were uncharitable. I should not have said them.
            That said, I don’t like you disagreeing with our Church in public like you do. You should know better. Your words make it seem that Catholics get to hold whatever viewpoint they want on abortion, and politicians can support abortion as long as they tag on Cuomo’s now infamous words of “personally opposed”. The Church is clear, yet you and Joe seem like you know better. Joe Biden is a plagiarizing hack, and a complete embarrassment to this country, though his mom sounded like a saint. He’s frankly no better than a
            Southern slaveholder, who is sold his political soul because he realized he couldn’t get elected if he held true to Catholic doctrine.
            You’re getting your “reward” for being democratic. You’re seeing Obamacare directly attacking he Church. It’s a rare moment when the entire Conference of Bishops can oppose a democratically sponsored law, but Obama and Joe “Big F’ing Deal” Biden accomplished the impossible.
            You know as well as I do that many bishops will refuse to serve communion to Biden if he came to their diocese. Biden has made his decision … and I pray you stop siding with the likes of him when you talk about faith.

      Rasmussen, May 17-18, 2011, poll of likely voters nationwide:

      60% believe that the “policies and practices” of the federal government encourages illegal immigration (Rasmussen, May 2011).

      64% say that gaining control of the border is more important than amnesty for illegal aliens. Only 31% believe amnesty is more important (Rasmussen, May 2011).

      61% support using the U.S. military on the border to prevent illegal immigration, compared to only 27% in opposition.

      59% favor cutting off federal funds to sanctuary cities, with just 28% opposed.

      Zogby, February 2010, poll of 700 Hispanic, 400 African-American, and 400 Asian-American likely voters:

      Believe immigration to the U.S. it too high, too low, or just right:

      African-Americans: 68% too high, 4% too low, 14% just right

      Hispanics: 56% too high, 7% too low, 20% just right

      Asian-Americans: 57% too high, 5% too low, 18% just right

      Which is preferred option, enforcement of current immigration law or a “pathway to citizenship”:

      African-Americans: 50% enforce law, 30% amnesty, 10% neither

      Hispanics: 52% enforce law, 34% amnesty, 7% neither

      Asian-Americans: 57% enforce law, 29% amnesty, 7% neither

      Clearly, amnesty is NOT what Americans want… not even Hispanics want it, just Demokrats and RINO’s…

          • emiliani

            Republicans are getting campaign contributions from Big Biz so that they can have a reservoir of cheap labor. Elites also think it’s sophisticated, cosmopolitan, and compassionate to support the desperate; plus, they hate any appearance of xenophobia — even when it doesn’t exist.

            Democrats are getting voters. They’re caught between millions of new voters who will keep Dems in power for the rest of their lives, and union concerns about undercutting wages.

            In neither party is there any real incentive to halt this crap, thus they haven’t. We could virtually eliminate illegal immigration and labor in about 1-2 years; however, there’s no desire to do so. Dems’ cynicism and Machiavellian machinations and Republican concern for cheap labor and goods/services are dooming the country to an identity change. Plus, Dems hate white Europeans … along with their Christian/Catholic Faith (as Republicans are beginning to). Republicans think they can beat Progressivism with Progressivism Light. Hilarious.

      Even though I’m anti-amnesty for illegal aliens and their families and homosexual partners, I still find the percentages posted by “DavidKramer,” to be less than credible. He uses the words “the country” for his percentages. He did not clarify if he was talking about legal adult citizens only, or the country in general (adults and children, legal and illegal combined). Furthermore, I must insist that people remember that in the last general election (November 2012) a whopping 50 percent of American adults did not vote. And out of the 50 percent of American adults who did vote, 53 percent voted for Mr. Obama, 47 percent for Mr. Romney. Anyone with a sixth grade education can see, then, that the U.S. is currently being controlled by a mere 28 percent of American adults. (These percentages are based upon statistics provided by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Federal Elections Commission.)

    The thing I like the most about this report is that NO ONE LEAKED ANYTHING. There isn’t any spin coming from Cruz on this, or anyone else because whatever they’re talking about is real and not propaganda designed to get the press to spin the people a certain way. They aren’t trying to ‘spin’ anything. They’re making REAL plans. Let’s hope those plans revolve around a White House run for 2016, or at least touch on that as well as taking over the Senate and strengthening the house in 2014 (yes I realize Cruz is in the House, but several of those named are in play for Senate seats).

    Reports: Abducted girls married to Nigerian rebels

    By MICHELLE FAUL 1 hour ago

    LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Scores of girls and young women kidnapped from a school in Nigeria are being forced to marry their Islamic extremist abductors, a civic organization reported Wednesday.

    At the same time, the Boko Haram terrorist network is negotiating over the students’ fate and is demanding an unspecified ransom for their release, a Borno state community leader told The Associated Press.

    He said the Wednesday night message from the abductors also claimed that two of the girls have died from snake bites.

    The message was sent to a member of a presidential committee mandated last year to mediate a ceasefire with the Islamic extremists, said the civic leader, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak about the talks.

    The news of negotiations comes as parents say the girls are being sold into marriage to Boko Haram militants. The students are being paid 2,000 naira ($12) to marry the fighters, Halite Aliyu of the Borno-Yobe People’s Forum told The Associated Press. She said the parents’ information about mass weddings is coming from villagers in the Sambisa Forest, on Nigeria’s border with Cameroon, where Boko Haram is known to have hideouts.

    “The latest reports are that they have been taken across the borders, some to Cameroon and Chad,” Aliyu said. It was not possible to verify the reports about more than 200 missing girls kidnapped in the northeast by the Boko Haram terrorist network two weeks ago.

    “Some of them have been married off to insurgents. A medieval kind of slavery. You go and capture women and then sell them off,” community elder Pogu Bitrus of Chibok, the town where the girls were abducted, told the BBC Hausa Service.

    Outrage over the failure to rescue the girls is growing and hundreds of women braved heavy rain to march Wednesday to Nigeria’s National Assembly to protest lack of action over the students. Hundreds more also marched in Kano, Nigeria’s second city in the north.

    “The leaders of both houses said they will do all in their power but we are saying two weeks already have past, we want action now,” said activist Mercy Asu Abang.

    “We want our girls to come home alive — not in body bags,” she said.

    Nigerians have harnessed social media to protest, trending under the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls.

    There also has been no news of 25 girls kidnapped from Konduga town in Borno state earlier this month.

    A federal senator from the region said the military is aware of the movements of the kidnappers and the girls because he has been feeding them details that he has gathered on a near-daily basis.

    “What bothered me the most is that whenever I informed the military where these girls were, after two to three days they were moved from that place to another. Still, I would go back and inform them on new developments,” Sen. Ahmad Zanna is quoted as saying at the Nigerian online news site Persecond News.

    Zanna said some of the girls are in Kolofata in Cameroon, about 15 kilometers (nine miles) from the border with Nigeria. He said one of the insurgents had called a friend in Borno state to say that he had just got married and was settling in Kolofata. Zanna also said three or four days ago Nigerian herdsmen reported seeing the girls taken in boats onto an island in Lake Chad.

    Another senator from the region said the government needs to get international help to rescue the girls. The government must do “whatever it takes, even seeking external support to make sure these girls are released,” Sen. Ali Ndume said. “The longer it takes the dimmer the chances of finding them, the longer it takes the more traumatized the family and the abducted girls are.”

    About 50 of the kidnapped girls managed to escape from their captors in the first days after their abduction, but some 220 remain missing, according to the principal of the Chibok Girls Secondary School, Asabe Kwambura. They are between 16 and 18 years old and had been recalled to the school to write a physics exam.

    The failure to rescue the girls is a massive embarrassment to Nigeria’s government and the military, already confronted by mounting criticism over its apparent inability to curb the 5-year-old Islamic uprising despite having draconian powers through an 11-month state of emergency in three northeastern states covering one-sixth of the country.

    The military trumpets a success in its “onslaught on terrorists” but then the extremists step up the tempo and deadliness of their attacks. More than 1,500 people have been killed in the insurgency so far this year, compared to an estimated 3,600 between 2010 and 2013.

    President Goodluck Jonathan, who is from the predominantly Christian south of Nigeria, has been accused of insensitivity to the plight of people in the north, who are mainly Muslims.

    People from Nigeria’s northeast feel that they are being punished because they did not vote for Jonathan’s People’s Democratic Party — the entire region is held by opposition politicians, said Aliyu, of the Borno-Yobe People’s Forum. “The northeast zone is in flames and nothing is being done because we didn’t vote PDP,” she said. “Women are raped daily, our children are being carted away like animals and sold like chickens, they (extremists) burn schools, they burn mosques, they raze entire villages.”

    She said it would take decades to rebuild from the destruction that has forced an estimated 750,000 people from their homes, some into neighboring countries, fleeing the terror of the zealots as well as abuses by the soldiers.

    The military’s lack of progress in rescuing the girls indicates that large parts of northeastern Nigeria remain beyond the control of the government. Until the kidnappings, the air force had been mounting near-daily bombing raids since mid-January on the Sambisa Forest and mountain caves bordering Chad.

    Aliyu said that in northeastern Nigeria “life has become nasty, short and brutish. We are living in a state of anarchy.”

    Lock down 2014 then go Cruz-Rubio or Cruz-Carson for 2016. Start planning now.

    • Disgruntled2012

      Rubio?!? Are you serious? A traitor is a traitor.

      • chock

        Rubio is open border, loving establishment republican. It didn’t take him long to run in their arms.

      • Rob

        As VP though, he can follow Cruz’s lead and Cruz-Rubio could pull more Hispanics and women- where we have lost the last few elections. How much influence has Biden had?

        • Disgruntled2012

          He sold out his constituents on amnesty, in a DIRECT violation of his campaign promises from less than 2 years previous. He cowrote what HAS to be the single worst piece of legislation since at least 2007, which would drive down wages and increase unemployment for American citizens, and bankrupt the government at the same time. A fraud and a liar. I wouldn’t vote for him for dog catcher,

    • guest

      Carson only. Then put him in charge of fixing our health care system. One lawyer is enough. Carson is brilliant and respects the Constitution. He’s a role model for inner city kids as well. There are many smart, conservative blacks that deserve him as well.

    So Cruz is still meddling in the affairs of the House. He doesn’t have many friends in the Senate, so that may explain it. He is a sneaky and dangerous man.

    • Disgruntled2012

      He’s considering the views of the American people. I guess that makes him dangerous to the ruling class.

      • mikem42

        Cruz doesn’t speak for the American people, but only the tea party far right segment, which is small and growing smaller by the day. And, just who is the ruling class in your mind?

Plus, broken and nearly bankrupt Illinois just passed a house bill giving 100 Million to the Obama’s to try and win the location of his presidential museum. Now if you said Manchelle was planning on running for the Senate Seat Obambi once stole, then I would buy in. But she would have to get past the Madigan mob machine that is already eying that seat. Kirk is as good as dead to the Republicans now so that seat is going to be up for grabs.

  • Disgruntled2012

    Hopefully, he was discussing a pledge to NOT ENACT IMMIGRATION “REFORM” a.k.a. amnesty, in any way at all! I’m praying that Cruz will declare, clearly and concisely, that he will not allow any amnesty during a Cruz presidency. Otherwise, I have no candidate I can vote for, and little hope for the future of this country.

    Cruz is a leader. Boehner, not so much. Cruz is not afraid to fight for the will of the people, Boehner, couldn’t be farther from it. No amnesty, secure the borders and enforce the laws already on the books.

  • La Billyboy

    Here is the immigration law most Americans support.

    SEAL the border. This will take approx 80,000 personnel every 400 yards along the southern border working 24/7/365 in 3 shifts with 2 men to a post. The DHS can easily do this with current budget and headcount.

    EMPOWER all sworn law enforcement officers in the United States to enforce current immigration laws.

    LIMIT all deportation hearings solely to the fact of legal status. You are either legal or illegal, there is no other state… immediately deport ALL illegals.

    END birthright citizenship. If you are born on U.S. soil you assume the nationality of your parent, as Obama likes to say, PERIOD.

    CEASE all government services for illegals. No more free school, housing, food stamps, welfare, healthcare, child care. Just humane emergency medical followed by immediate deportation when the patient stabilizes.

    TIE all future immigration to the U.S. labor participation rate. Unless 98% of Americans who want work have it, we don’t need any more immigrants.

    PERIOD

            Fully 98 percent of individuals deported from the United States in 2013 were either criminals, apprehended while illegally crossing the border, or had been previously deported, according to a new analysis from Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).

            The three-page document, labeled a “Critical Alert” by the senator’s office, found three executive actions by President Barack Obama providing amnesty to groups of illegal aliens meant that virtually no one who did not meet other criteria beyond simply being in the country illegal was deported.

            Not different enough for me.

            Obama:

            Refuses to prosecute of Wall. St criminals because he took over 5 million in contributions from Jp Morgan, Goldman Sachs, CitiGroup, UBS AG, Morgan Stanley…you know…the 1% wall street thieves.

            Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton – just like Bush did.

            Has an administration full of lobbyists, after promising he
            wouldn’t have any.

            Broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay.

            Supported the $700 billion TARP corporate-welfare bailout just like Bush.

            Gave tax dollars to AIG executives, then pretended to be outraged about it.

            Supports Bush’s unconstitutional Patriot Act

            Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, indefinite
            detention of U.S. citizens without filing any charges.

            Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, warrantless wiretapping.

            Privately Bush had no problem with gay marriage. You might want to google Jeff Gannon, George Bush. Bush was so full of cuhm claiming to be conservative it was hilarious.

            He actually had a more liberal policy on immigration than Obama….people seem to forget.

            Obama also had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process

            Would you pick Obama over Cruz and why or why not?

          • PatriotTroy

            For starters, Obama was born on American soil (I’m not getting into a birther argument here so don’t even start). 2nd, Cruz caused major economic destruction with his govt shutdown that nobody but him thought was a good idea, 3rd, Cruz looks like a shape-shifting lizard or reptile of some sort LOL

          • pixxa

            LOL? Seriously that’s what you bring to the table? Because that actually is smarter than everything else you said. You might want to do a little research about the shutdown.

          • Corpseman57

            You seriously don’t know jack.

          • LisaT

            There was no major economic destruction from the shutdown. All Fed employees got their pay. All the shutdown was, was Obama trying to shutdown private memorials and historical places that weren’t even Govt. You need to go read something besides the NY Slimes, Kos, or Slate.

          • des_3

            Nice try re tard. Cruz is one person and incapable of causing a government shutdown. He helped convince Republicans to put strings on the budget deal, which the Dems didn’t like SO THEY REFUSED TO ALLOW A VOTE. Republicans passed a half-dozen bills to keep the government open and the Dems refused to vote on any of them.

            By any definition that is the Democrat Senate shutting down the government. Even to someone as stupid as you.

      • HDTVJack

        Well, you’re wrong about this. I hope you will listen to me. You won’t find a better leader than Cruz. Not only is he smart and articulate – not seen in a Republican candidate since Reagan – But most importantly: He’s got balls! Try to name anyone in the political realm with more courage. We are damn lucky to have him. He is a citizen; a precedent has been established for that now, so don’t bring it up. If Obama can get in, he can get in. His Cuban heritage is a big plus as far as I’m concerned. His family knows all about the horrors of communism.

        A really smart man, Alan Dershowitz said Ted Cruz was one of his smartest students ever. You want someone to turn this country around? Thank God we have Ted Cruz.

      • LisaT

        He’s not a Cuban. His father is Cuban and his mother is an American. You apparently are a stupido.

    This way the people who keep re-electing Boehner will get what they deserve.

  • lax

    thank you Senator.

  • JoetheFilmmaker

    Cruz is the man. He takes a private meeting with conservatives we all know will help America and the people in America.

    At the same time, Boehner, McConnell, McCain, Graham, Ayotte take private meetings with radical liberals that we all know will further aggravate our Constitutional law and order.

    The only difference is that Cruz has 250million Americans willing to give their lives for this cause, and the RINO coalition only have Obama’s civilian army (maybe).

    Let the war begin!

    • ZA642

      Why does he need to meet with teaparty in congress they made a pack on day one when Obama was elected not to govern or let Obama and Dems pass any bills. If the Dems lose the Senate they will will find out

    • Papa_oo_Mao_Mao

      Nahhh….not Germany not the Wannseekonferenz… ;it was in Poland. Since we are handling our economy the same way any polak would they wanted to see what the white house is really thinking.

    • Faceless Commenter

      One point for knowing what Wannsee was.

      Now please go back and understand that genocide is not the same thing as requiring visas for citizens of Mexico.

      • Nathan Bedford Forrest

        I’m not convinced he knows what Wannsee was reference to.

  • notyranny

    Cruz is one of few American’s that have a slight chance of getting us out of this mess.

    GO TED CRUZ!

    • brockwad

      Too bad he can’t run for president. You know that Constitution thing? I mean, foreign born is foreign born right?

      • notyranny
        • brockwad

          Wow! OK, I stand corrected. A tip of my hat to notnranny,*tip*. And it was even a real published magazine with fact checkers and the legal resposibility for what it publishes, not a WND type that hides behind the old,” where just a website so you can’t sue us if we post unture facts.” Of course this means that Birthers were full excremnet. Even if Obama was born in Kenya he’d still qualify to be president.

          nottyanny, mind if I ask you a question? Do you think the government shut down was good for the American economy?

          • notyranny

            It was necessary to create the “Wake up Call” that it did. It got the attention of America at a time that it was direly needed.

            Ted Cruz is a near genius and men like him are our future, Paul Revere was spurned also.

          • brockwad

            notyrannny,
            So, correct me if I’m wrong, you feel that despite being bad for the U.S. economy, it had to be done to draw attention to Federal overspending? Do you think it made people outside of the Republican base happy, or enlightend them in a positive way for Cruz?
            I’m curious what you think about pot legalization, same sex marraige, and corporate welfare?

          • notyranny

            Correct, money creation out of thin air must stop. You may not have a clue whats going on, but I do.

            It didn’t make people inside or outside the Republican base happy, but who cares? The needed shot was fired that began to awaken people from their numb slumber and think. The MSM blew it out of proportion for months, is that the news you watch? Freedom is once again brewing in America.

            I want government out of our lives. I want people to be responsible for theirselves and I could care less what you smoke, drink, or who you sleep with. That is your business, just don’t interfere with mine.

            Corporations are people and should be taxed as such, without special welfare.

          • brockwad

            notyranny,
            So is Ted Cruz in favor of Same Sex Marriage, pot legalization and abortion rights? Are you?
            What about Rand Paul Or the actual Libertarian Gary Johnson?

      Reagan was a RINO. He’d never make it through a Republican primary today. Just look at his record…if you dare…

      • poh

        Sure he would. He would be stronger than he was during his presidency because he would have more conservative to stand up with him. He was a practical politician and did the best with the country as it was and Congress as it was too.

    • Ronaldus Maximumus Reganus

      To the history ignorant individual who said Regan was a RINO…compared to whom? Nixon? Ford? Maybe you ‘ll have to look all the way back to Lincoln by your standards. Please don’t count Goldwater he never was a President. No, dealing with scumbag democrats in both houses I think he did pretty well.

            Take an hour and watch the film. The photo album of O at Davis’ home as well as the pictures of his mother at the Davis’ home in….well….rather compromising positions is pretty bizarre.
            I’ll google Subud and Obama and check it out. I’m open minded. I guarantee if you watch this extremely well produced and researched documentary you will at least get some previously unknown info.

            American Thinker had an article about the connection. The woman who was put in place at the hawaiin agency for vital statistics when Obama released his birth certificate, she was also a member of this cult. She died a year later in a plane crash (the only person to die?). Frank davis, he has very deep ties to Valerie Jarrett, Obamas mother did screw around with him and his wife like you said. But I believe with all my heart that that Subud guy is the father.

    Cruz seems like a nice man. He just acts like a bozo. I would like to see him on stage juggling eggs. LOL!

    I can’t believe you can’t type the word starting with c and ending with n. So I typed bozo.

        That’s really kind of awful, and I support your right to say it. Senator Markey, though, would like you arrested.

        • frank

          Well at least we agree that what he said is awful. I agree. :)

          • Tori

            We do not agree. He has every right to say it, think it, say it. I’m hoping it is for humorous effect, but even if it isn’t …

            Why all the racist names?

  • Irish Rose

    I’ve written this to everyone I can think of in Congress and media with no responses.

    Ben Carson for Speaker of the House ASAP. It is NOT required in the Constitution that the Speaker be a sitting Rep. It has always been the case, but it need NOT be. We have to think out of the box, can’t wait for 2016.

    The man is brilliant and fully capable of uniting Congress and the country.

    If he does a great job, and I feel confident that he would, it is his platform for 2016. Ben Carson is a Gift to us.

    • Gutierrez’s Puppet

      Ben Carson supports amnesty. Would you support someone like that?

      • Irish Rose

        Hi,
        Dr. Carson supports securing the borders. He does not support amnesty. He wants a guest worker program as Canada has to allow workers to come and go. They must pay taxes to the US and the program does not give them the rights of citizenship.

  • Joe Guzman

    The GOP destruction will happen from within.
    Led by the erstwhile Cuban / Canadian demagogue, Ted Cruz ( no complaints from the birther fringe!). The tea party infused Republican party has allowed the parasite to infect and soon to destroy the host. The next few months will be hell on earth for Mr. Boehner. Well deserved.
    Oh, and I forgot to mention, somehow, this will all be Obama’s fault.

    • Jeffrey2099

      Obama is dropping in the polls but Cruz is rising. See a trend?

      • Joe Guzman

        Yes, a bad one for the GOP. You are just making my point.
        By the way, I should remind you, demagogues feast on feeble minds. A word of friendly advice.

        • Jeffrey2099

          Obama is not a demagogue? Could have fooled me.

          • Joe Guzman

            You were busy paying attention to Ted Cruz, the erstwhile Cuban/Canadian.

          • Jeffrey2099

            So what are your thoughts Benghazi?

          • Joe Guzman

            The best last opportunity to impeach Obama. Go for it GOP! Compare Obama to Nixon. Have Rush and Will and Krauthammer parrot the anti-Obama talking points. Have Mr. Issa renew his efforts at practicing partisan politics on the public dime. Convince Boehner to select a special House panel while forgetting the Nation’s business. Have Mr. Graham enact a hissy fit in protest about Benghazi.
            At the end of the day, the tea party infused GOP will remain the three ring circus they have become. Wrong on ideas, wrong on policy and wrong on history.

          • Jeffrey2099

            Joey, you disappoint me. Cannot you see? You have failed. Obama will be impeached. Benghazi is just the tip of the iceberg. The IRS targeting of conservative groups, Obamacare, halting deportations are all impeachable offenses. 2015 will not be a good year for Obama. Because the House and senate will controlled by the Tea Party.

    • jamesben

      You’re clearly delusional. How can you ignore the ABYSS that Obama has driven the country AND the Dimwitcrat Party into? 40% and the Dem DUMPSTER FIRE is raging.

      The carnage in Nov. will be amusing.

      • Joe Guzman

        Big caps and insults, jamesben. You must be another member of the tea party. By the way, it is bigots that try to justify their self delusion. What a nasty habit you have there.

            Your reality. I understand. Good luck anyhow.

  • Jeffrey2099

    The Democrats are toast. Nate Silver even says so. President at 41%, GDP growth at .1, ADP private payrolls up 220k. Not enough to cover new workers entering the work force much less getting the long term unemployed back to work.

    • frank

      You forgot. And the stock market is booming. We just made a new high on the Dow!

      • Tori

        Frank, you do realize that’s fake $ backed by nothing don’t you.

        • frank

          Well those “fake” dollars mean more money in my pocket. And that is real!!

          • Jeffrey2099

            Frank, I hope you burn in hell!

          • frank

            Whoa

          • LisaT

            When the market crashes and Frank loses all of his money, he won’t have to burn in hell. He’ll either be living it or he’ll be one of those arrogant guys who wouldn’t listen or pay attention to history and he’ll jump out of a window. Just like they did the last time the market crashed.

          • http://www.opaobie.com/promisekept.php TEWS_Pilot

            Frank look up Weimar Republic.

      • Jeffrey2099

        Yes, thanks to 0% interest rates, everyone is being herded into risk assets. Grandma and Grandpa are going to get crushed as are their children, grand children and great grand children.

        • frank

          Right. You can wait till that happens.

          • Jeffrey2099

            Yes, I can wait, but I hope I’m wrong but I see no way out without resetting to actual value.

          • frank

            When inflation gets higher then I will agree with you. Right now the indicators are not showing that. Well respected economist agree. So chill out friend.

          • Tori

            It’s really convenient to exclude food and fuel when calculating inflation funny numbers. Obama’s admin is adept in this, on this I concede.

          • Jeffrey2099

            Don’t get too attached to your easy money. It is just as easy to lose.

          • LisaT

            Look, we already HAVE inflation. I see it every time I go to the grocery store! I just had to pay $4.05/gal of gas! Taxes on ALL utilities going up! What planet do you live on??? Apparently you are either blatantly stupid or a paid troll…probably BOTH.

      • Big Al

        Clearly you don’t understand economics. Prior to black tuesday in 1929, the market was setting records too without any real growth. Do you see the correlation here?

        • Jeffrey2099

          None of them see it. They are deranged and prone to financial suicide.

          • Big Al

            Sad state of affairs. The true victims of all this will be our children born into this mess paying huge sums of money to a government who offers little or no services in return just so they can pay off the debt we accrued. I think it’s in every states best interest to at least consider the possibility of secession should the U.S. try to forfeit federal holdings of lands and resources just to keep themselves afloat.

          • frank

            Nothing you can blame Obama for so you have to blame him for something in the future that isn’t going to happen. That’s a real reach to try to get voters. Good luck.

          • Jeffrey2099

            Are you kidding? Long term unemployment is completely his fault because he is a socialist. Thanks to him we are stuck with Frances employment #s. Obamacare is a disaster that will only get worse. Don’t forget, he delayed all the worst parts until after the 2014 election cycle. Our debt and deficits are obscene and threaten to destroy the fabric of the country. His fault. Benghazi his fault. Ukraine his fault. Chemicals weapons used routinely his fault. A nuclear Iran his fault. That’s the short list.

          • frank

            It’s amazing how we are so alike and think opposite. I heard stuff like what you say on talk radio. I would advise you to not get brainwashed by their hoopla. Just a thought. :)

          • Jeffrey2099

            Any real American with a functioning prefrontal cortex knows without a doubt that Obama is the worst president in American history. Limbaugh knows what is going on as do Hannity and Levin. They are smart Americans. You should hear what they have to say.

          • frank

            I listen to them when I can but for entertainment. I don’t believe them overall. They each have a way of twisting the truths on most subjects. But yes thet are fun to listen to.

          • Jeffrey2099

            But you believe Obama. If you like your insurance you keep your insurance. If you like you doctor you can keep your doctor. How do you rationalize that?

          • frank

            I never liked my doctor and my insurance sucked anyway. What Obama did was just plan and simple National Health Insurance for all. At least that is was his aim was. It makes sense and most leading countries have it.

          • Jeffrey2099

            He lied! Do you think it is ok for the President to lie about something this important!

          • frank

            He didn’t lie. He just didn’t say how it might turn out for some rich folks. So we (if you make less than 100k) don’t have to worry about it. :)

          • Jeffrey2099

            BS, he lied. And some people that were in the middle of treatment for serious diseases lost their insurance and doctors. How would you like to switch doctors in the middle of chemotherapy. You selfish little brat!

          • frank

            No one lost their treatment in the middle of chemo. Their insurance they had was either shabby or incorrect in their initial assessments. Plus there are forms you can file to easily get funding for additional charges. Don’t listen to all the BS you here!

          • Jeffrey2099

            And how would you know that Frank? Are you a god Frank? No, your a peon Frank. You don’t know diddily.

          • Crystallite

            You are such a gullible fool. Most people had better insurance at cheaper rates before O’Care forced rate increases and narrower networks to save money and help subsidize YOU. Stop buying into a giant con.

          • frank

            Well those insurance companies I would deem shabby. They didn’t cover preconditions and did other things shabby. Try telling that to a person with preconditions.

          • LisaT

            FRANK IS A TROLL! STOP FEEDING THE TROLLS!

          • Crystallite

            frank, what good is O’Care insurance when few doctors and hospitals will accept it? It doesn’t matter if you’re getting a subsidy, paid for by everyone else BTW. You’re on your own when it comes to the deductible. Right out of your pocket before any co-pay kicks in. And doctors and hospitals are few and far between. Don’t go by the booklet you’ll be getting as to who accepts this crap sandwich. Only 1/3 of the doctors in the US will accept it as payment and only 4 cancer hospitals will accept it. For the rest, you’re on your own. Don’t get sick.

          • Paul Paine

            Crystal, you have one error. 0bamacare is not insurance. It is health lending. When you die, they come and take the costs from your estate.

            That is why they always call it “health care” instead of “health insurance”. Just another lie. At this point, what difference does it make.

          • Paul Paine

            Whoa, Frank. Nothing to blame 0bama for?

            Lets just go for the skyrocketing of electricity prices, which he himself said was a necessity. Shut down coal and coal fired generating plants. Shut down gas and oil drilling on public lands. Shut down drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

            Pure supply and demand Frankie. Supply goes down, prices go up. Gas less than $2 a gallon when he started to destroy our economy. Pretty obvious to most people.

          • Jeffrey2099

            We can still turn it around but it is imperative that we get control of the legislative branch and dump Boehner. Next we need to take the WH. Amnesty must not be allowed to succeed. That is how the Democratic Socialist party plans to get a permanent voting block in place. Failure is not an option.

      • Team_Huli

          What? What are you talking about?

          • Jeffrey2099

            The fed gives banks money to loan or invest for 0%. That is borrowed money and backed by the good standing of the US taxpayer.

          • Paul Paine

            Frank, you are such a wonderful example of a loinfo voter.

        • Tori

          And you and I got to give them the $ to do it. Isn’t that special.

          • Team_Huli

            Remember those toxic assets from 2007/08 that the banks own? Because the banks can place a market value of whatever they wish on these (thanks to Barney Frank), they are getting almost unlimited funds from the Federal Reserve with these as collateral.

            One of these days, there will be a collateral call, or the required percentage to maintain on deposit will increase. The markets will officially be toast.

          • Tori

            I tell people, buy food. I’m completely serious. And seeds. We have no concept of what this collapse will be like. It’s terrifying.

      • Crystallite

        It’s called Quantitative Easing, frank. And when that ends, the Dow will drop to 6000.

      • Michael Todd

        Lmao, individual investment is down 6%. That mean only rich people are making money on the stock market. Plus, you must have forgotten the fed is pumping 75 billion a month into the markets. Has the stock market helped add jobs to the economy? No it hasn’t.

        It’s the Reid plan. Includes selling all of our mineral rights to China.

    Cruz needs to back off of the calling for Kerry to resign over calling Israel Apartheid.
    they are apartheid. Jewish Billionsiares…Sheldon Adelson. Mark Zuckerberg. Mike Bloomberg. Mr. Singer and legaions more…………put millions into the Amnesty Lobby. They want the USA to be Open Borders, flood the USA with cheap labor and turn us into a Banana Republic..where they can control wages..and they will be low.
    Israel is a religious Jewish State. jews only. Of the 600,000 Christian Arabs who lived in Israel in 1947, when Israel, with the backing of the USA won that war…only 6,000 are so are left.
    Apartheid means Separate. In the old dutch language of S.Africa. Races are separate.
    Chrisitans and Moslems and Hindus and Buddishts….none of them can ever immigrate to Israel. They cannot buy land there, and then, for photo ops, like Pat Boone, they can. But ordinary people>>>>>>NO.
    That is separate. Only Jews can live there permanently, own land, vote.
    If a Orthodox Jew..one of the religious police..finds an Israeli reading a Bible..He can rip out the New Testament if it included. That is the law.
    If Huckabee on one of his many trips to Israel….converted a Jewish person to Chrisitaniyt…………both could go to jail for three years.
    Orthodox men…………treat women very badly. they throw rocks and books at women who try to pray at the Wailing Wall,.tthey teach they are unclean during certain times. and on and on. They have to shave their heads. They are very similar to Muslims. they live in the same time frame….1000B.C.
    No. I am not anti Semiite. Few in The USA are. I don’t deny the holocaust. My dad was in service fours fighting to free those death camps.
    I am sick of Rich Jewish people Being APARTHEID SEPERATE ONLY JEWS while spending billions to open our borders, hurt our workers, destroy our Middle Class…………….while screaming that Illegals cannot be deported and we can’[t have a fence.when they have and do all of that in Israel.
    We have been a friend to Israel. They are not a friend to us. That is just fact.

    The cry-baby Boehner should have been removed a long time ago. SHAME on you, Ohio. You like that bacon, don’t you, you pigs.

    Boehner’s history this November and he knows it, so he’s trying to cause as many problems for the Tea Party as he can. Probably so he can make a deal to retain his speakership. NO DEAL.

    This November the GOP only needs six seats to take the Senate. They’re locked onto nine seats and will probably get 12 or more. The Tea Party will therefore take the Senate in 2014 just like they took the House in 2010. Even if some “moderate” (big gov’mint RINO boobs) still get elected you can rest assured that during their election campaign they will pretend to be “Tea Partiers.” Fine, let ‘em get into office but come January 2015 they’ll play ball or be consigned to the back bench.

            No it was to keep East Germans from going into West Berlin to stay or to use it as a way to move from there to Western Europe. West Berliners wanted to stay in as they were always free to leave. So the wall was built to keep people out or West Berlin. Hence you had minefields and guards on its outside.

    Cruz is totally in it for himself. Probably one of the most selfish politicians in recent memory. Everything is aimed for his personal ambitions, with absolutely no concern for neither country nor party.

    If an American’s vote is so “sacred” and a right, then its a very serious thing. The Dems confess this daily (against Voter ID). Then i say that when a politician goes beyond or against a campaign promise, that would be treason and/or deleting people’s votes. I say that is punishable as the same as treason. Firing Squad or Hanging. Solve all our country’s illls overnight.

  • Spanky9

    Ted Cruz is brilliant, principled and patiently efficient in his plans to take on the Washington establishment. As he begins to mobilize his efforts to take on the stagnant and corrupt Republican leadership, he will send shivers down the spines of every Progressive politician who has selfishly taken advantage of their positions of power without protecting the interests of grassroots voters. Boehner, Canter and McConnell are now on the endangered species list.

        Cruz will *DESTROY* Hillary in any debate. (and she knows it).

        • ReallyReadyforHillary

          Uh, Im not really so sure of that.

          I actually know Ted and have for years because his law firm is my law firm.

          I know he was champ debater and have talked to him about this and admire this about him but Hillary is no slouch in this world either.

          She crushed Obama in every debate and this was even when the press was there to fluff his pillow and trying to destroy her campaign – like Russert and Matthews did.

          I know both of these people and Id give neither the advantage technically – but Hillary supports the views of a majority of voters while Cruz doies not.

          Plus there is no way the GOP makes him their nominee – so its all moot anywho.

          • Rush4Evermore

            I’m not worried. All Ted’s got to do is go on the offense about Hillary’s public service. She’s already buried herself credibility-wise long before Ted came on the scene. Benghazi was a slam dunk argument that Mitt Romney mysteriously did not do a good job to capitalize on when he debated Obama in the 2012 elections. Hillary cannot escape the consequences of failed policies of this administration. It will come back to haunt her – esp if all Ted does is point out the outlandish “what difference does it make ?” disgusting rant before the Senate last summer.

          • Jack Everett

            It’s not about how to be the biggest hater it’s about finding good leadership and their is nothing good in the republican hate monger obstruction party.

          • Rush4Evermore

            “…the hate monger obstruction party.” … hmm, let’s examine this one a little closer shall we ? … YES WE CAN!

            I can go on and on about this topic all day Troll. So I’ll spare you the full light of day. However, let me give you a taste of how idiotic that comment is.

            Recently – John Kerry anti-Semitic suggestion that Israel would become an apartheid state if they don’t play ball with his joke of a “peace” talks with Hamas. Talk about hate mongering. (Yep, he’s a DEMOCRAT).

            Elijah Cummings trying to obstruct the House Oversight committee investigating the IRS scandal involving Lois Lerner. I cant tell you how many times he’s played the RACE card in his irrelevant indignant rants to the press in an attempt to distract from Issa doing his job. Then we find out he’s actually involved. What does he do ? … (you guessed it) cry RACISM.

            And what party does Cummings belong to ? … hmm, I know – DEMOCRAT.

            Let’s not forget your buddy Harry Reid. Literally hundreds of laws have been dead-on-arrival when passed LEGITIMATELY from the House when it arrives to the Senate simply because Harry Reid won’t allow them to go forward to the Senate floor ! … How is that not obstructionist again ?? …

            … now for the million dollar question – what party is Harry Reid ? … DEMOCRAT !!!

            Wow, that’s 3 specific examples of how stupid that argument is. Has your head exploded yet ?? …

            Thank you for playing Troll !

            Oh Gods, please believe this.

            The trouble with your “theory” is that the vast american public doesnt agree with you on any of it and the vast american public are the ones who get to decide who will be the next president, not you.

            But please, keep believing that lying about Hillary and benghazi is the kryptonite you will use to stop her. I dream that is the GOP plan :)

          • Rush4Evermore

            Your indignant barb about my “theory” makes me laugh you silly lib. It is not hyperbole, nor is it wishful thinking. This comes straight from her mouth. She’s got a very long, dirty / corrupt track record in politics. (And believe me when I tell you – her hands are *VERY* bloody). Benghazi was only the most recent example. Whether you believe me or not is immaterial. What’s going to rock your little world is what happens in mid-term elections. In all honesty, Hillary would do well to simply get out of the public limelight because the moment a strong-willed GOP candidate comes out and takes her on, she’s toast. And so she will sick her liberal press minions on that candidate (whomever it is) to lie / smear, denigrate, do whatever they have to do to help distract from her instead of having an honest open debate about how to run the country. Reagan understood how the liberals played. He challenged their playbook and won. In the world of common-sense government and rationality / reason, liberals will always lose the argument. Never forget that.

          • ReallyReadyforHillary

            I love when you nutters pretend that you have inside secret information. It makes me giggle and smile.

            I live and work in dc and have lived and worked for the clintons. Youre totally nuts about what you “know” about her. Loco to 11, youve got nada but crazy conspiracy theories that you nutters trade like baseball cards. ( how many deaths are the clintons up to now? Its gotta be over 50 counting her slaughtering her friend and the three others in libya right?)

            And i expect a very bad midterm for Obama. Not even close to as bad as 2010 but bad. And he deserves it. I never supported or even voted for the guy. The clintons are known by all honest americans as the couple that tried to keep him out of 1600, his loses are not theirs. I know you cant see this but that doesnt really matter.

            She starts off with 260 no lose electoral votes and you add just a Pa (her semi home state and a state that has gone blue since the clintons won it in 92) ornflorida and its all over.

            By the way , you might want to check drudge this morning. Seems hillary is leading Jeb bush in Florida.

            Keep telling yourself that if it helps you sleep at night. We’ll see how this plays out. You haven’t even bothered to argue with my assertions (which you know to be fact about Hillary).

        “The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is the American Branch of a society which originated in England … (and) … believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule
        established.” – Carroll Quigley, “Tragedy and Hope”.

        York Times, Time Magazine… whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work

        Putting another globalist in the White House isn’t winning. Bush was holding summits on integration under SPP. Who gave us the patriot act? He set it up under DHS that gov can declare martial law and take over any business/utility. Boehner is doing all he can to foist “immigration reform” on us….in other words flood the country with cheap labor to kill the middle class. Dems aren’t our problem our “friends” are our problem. Hopefully Rand Paul hasn’t sold out. Let the other side kill the country. Romney, all the other top tier last time were globalists, ALL of them. Right now is when we have a choice. Cruz needs to be exposed. It’s during the primary process that we have a choice. Instead the sheeple are led around by the nose. BTW Cruz thinks we need to increase legal immigration too.

        “Secondly, I believe we should expand legal immigration, reduce the barriers, reduce the waiting periods and I’ve
        introduced two amendments to significantly expand legal immigration, to double the caps on legal immigration from 675,000 to 1.3 million and to increase temporary high skilled workers by 500%.” – U. S. Senator Ted Cruz
        Double?!!! 5x more HB-1 visa’s so wages for those jobs held down? Aren’t we all supposed to just get an education? Aren’t these imported workers just doing the jobs Americans won’t do? Everyone in the WORLD is entitled to a job in America except Americans? Ya know the NAU is the plan. Just imagine life in America after the country is flooded with Mexicans? Welcome to the wild west.

        A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can
        no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague. ~Cicero

        NAFTA creates an economic trading bloc with the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, but the ultimate goal is POLITICAL CONVERGENCE and then a larger vision for the region. In the Trilateral Commission 1993 annual report, Honorary Chairman Paul Volker noted, “Interdependence is driving our countries toward convergence in areas once considered fully within the domestic purview.” Unfortunately, this convergence will mean a lower standard of living for Americans. “The standard of living of the average American has to decline…I don’t think you can escape that,”… It should be noted that Establishment insiders never refer to their bi-partisan legislation as treaties because this requires two-thirds approval in the Senate. And, as Kissinger indicated, NAFTA (with 1,700 pages) is not a
        conventional trade agreement, but it has all of the force of a treaty. Hidden in this same legislation was the creation of the WTO…Newt Gingrich (CFR/Bilderberg) introduced the separate WTO legislation (26,000) pages) in a lame duck session of the Congress and described it as a “transformation moment.” Why did the House Speaker do this? He and Establishment insiders knew that the incoming republican majority Congress (including Rep. Joe Scarborough) would probably reject the WTO. The WTO was easily passed in the Democratic congress, and now the Executive Branch has ceded authority to the WTO headquarters in Geneva, which allows the EU to outvote the U.S. 15 to 1, and 70% of the remaining votes are in the Third World. (Also in WTO is GAT)

        Last election some of the sheeple were calling for Newt to run…another “friend” working for the destruction of our country.

        “The American Union follows the first step, the European Union, and then the African Union, in the Elite’s plan to control the entire world. Next will be the Asian Union, and the Soviet Union, all to be completed between the years 2010 and 2015. This is not my speculation, it’s their stated plans, as detailed in a UN document titled Our Global Neighborhood (available in
        any bookstore, on special order).”

        they haven’t gotten their timeline, but it’s warp speed now. Bible tells us there will be one world gov and it’s going to be a coalition of “10 kings”. The plan is 10 unions governed by the UN.

        “…the State Department, the Trade Department, certain banking and financial groups, multinationals and tax-exempt foundations are run by organizations such as the CFR, the RIIA, the Trilateral Commission, the Dartmouth and Bilderberg
        Meetings, the Aspen Institute and the Atlantic Insititute… (which are) using them to spread and coordinate plans for a so-called New World Order, serving the business and financial channels of the political world…

        The world views of these insiders are characterized by atheism and materialism. All that matters to them is to maximize their profits, by wielding the twin-weapons of debt and monopoly. That is absolutely not true capitalism, and it is not surprising if the insiders of these clubs – while vying with each other – are also plotting together to join forces with Kremlin leaders, whose vision of the world is also that of atheistic, materialistic profiteer…” J. Helms
        Bankers and multinationals own and run our country. Quislings in WA lick their boots because they will get rich/richer if they do. BTW, Cruz’s wife is a big time banker. And they both have deep ties to the Bush’s.

        No compulsion Government fascism in free will offerings. Must be from the heart else they are rejected.
        2 Corinthians 9:7
        7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not
        grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
        _______________________________________________________________________
        We are no longer arguing with idiots. You progressive fascist commies always lie even if the truth is better. We never believe anything you commies say. Go pound sand at the huff and puff. Because you will die before you make us Government slaves!!!!!!!
        Rules for Radicals liar. Never believe anything a progressive says they always lie even if the truth is better. Its their homage to Satan who is the author of all lies.
        John 8:44
        44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
        2Thes2
        10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
        11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
        12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

  • emiliani

    We true Conservatives have ourselves partly to blame. When we constantly mouth platitudes about personal liberty and freedom — as if these two things, as important as they are, trump responsibility, charity, and faith — we undermine what we really stand for. After all, we talk freedom and liberty to do all kinds of things, then we sit around perplexed when gays argue that they be allowed the “freedom” to marry each other … the drug users claim the “freedom” to recreational drug use … and illegal aliens assert their “freedom” to hop the fence and do whatever jobs too many Americans think they’re above doing. There was one other “Advocate” for unbridled freedom, and the absolute authority to determine “our own” morality, back in the Garden.
    If generic “freedom” is the best we can talk about, we’re going to go right down the trash heap, because the elite opinion makers contort “freedom” to mean license and anarchy.

    • manthelifeboats

      Conservatives can’t be “blamed” for being outnumbered, my friend, as I know from living in Mass. I often say that most democratic voters are complicit with all the abuses in the government. what I do think is that conservatives need to be come more aggressive, as progressives are outspoken, witch hunting and obnoxious. Andrew Breitbart showed us the way it should be done.

      • emiliani

        Yes, they can. Religious apathy and rejection of the faith is directly linked to the faithlessness of the religious. Why are we outnumbered, Man? Because people left Conservatism and have glommed on to whatever tickles their fancy: sexual libertinism, drugs/alcohol, entertainment, or whatever replacement behaviors they substitute for religion. Republicans feel uncomfortable countering the Godless Democratic hordes with the only thing that can possibly compete and defeat it: faith. The answer for a conservative ascendency isn’t aggression or “in your face” tactics, but lives, marriages, and careers that puts liberals to such shame that everyone realizes Christians have it better. But of course, that’s hard and demanding, and requiring considerable sacrifice, which is why so few actually want to do it. Republicans have for too long thought religion an unnecessary accoutrement, when in fact it’s the lynchpin. History proves it time and again.

  • busybvr

    Here’s a dose of reality. The Republicans CAN NOT win another presidency without the Liberty vote, period !

She caved, got mentored and taken into a wing with Mcain and a couple of other rinos. She hits the talk show circuits now claiming that there is NO other solution to the illegals in the SHADOWS but AMNESTY.

    Undocumented People And US Taxpayers Will Continue To Be Buried Within and By Washington’s Illegal Immigration/Reform Box

    US and foreign corporatists want the undocumented to keep coming illegally to the US in order to refresh their supply of laborers flowing north and flowing south. They want to make it harder for the undocumented to cross the border in order to make sure that only the most motivated and physically fit people illegally make it through. Otherwise they keep dangling their immigration reform carrot in front of the future undocumented who will – by the millions and despite the dangers – take the insidious leap across our southern border.

    They want Americans to keep believing – despite years of evidence to the contrary – that “border security” and billons more in American tax dollars will solve the illegal immigration problem.

    Are you willing to consider the similarities between illegal immigration enforcement and enforcement against illegal drugs? Decades, billions of dollars, millions of undocumented, and hundreds of thousands of people jailed and deported while both problems have actually gotten worse.

    Are you willing to consider that Washington’s crony enforcement industries fighting illegal immigration and illegal drugs profit by remaining ineffective?

    Are you willing to consider that Washington’s arguments for and against immigration reform are designed to keep us all dumbed down to the fact that Washington’s own NAFTA, CAFTA, and TPP trade policies with the undocumenteds’ home country economic elite actually exacerbate illegal immigration?

    Are you willing to think outside Washington’s immigration box that continues to bury undocumented people at the border?

    The GOP is beginning to hemorrhage its core base of conservatives – those of us who make the calls and knock on the doors.

    It is impossible to tell Boehner from Pelosi, McConnell from Reid. The GOP is the Progressive Right party.

    • manthelifeboats

      Yes. indeed. the strategy for me has been to stay with the republicans just long enough so we get enough tea party types in office and eventually form a major, third, independent type conservative party to threaten the moderate and rinos into submission. right now we have no recourse but to “purge” and reform the republican party. Boehner is the kingpin right now. This duplicitous, self absorbed buffoon must be removed and chastised. I sincerely think that his type is beyond reforming.

    Not surprisingly, the article refers to House Members attending the Cruz meeting as “agitators.”

    Well, our Founding Fathers were “agitators” and these geniuses created a Constitution and Government model that has been the envy of the World for centuries.

    This model incorporates equal and separate branches that have inefficiencies that when useful idiots elect an incompetent fool like THEY did in 2008 and 2012, it is still difficult for the fool to destroy their model, our rights, and our freedoms.

    It would be a huge mistake for our Campaigner/Vacationer-in-Chief to attempt staying beyond January 2017 when the next President Elect is sworn in, if he is not impeached and removed before.

    This is why, WE NEED TO VOTE OUT OF OFFICE EVERY DEMOCRAT THIS NOVEMBER IF FOR NO OTHER REASONS THAN THEY ARE EXCLUSIVELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE [UN]AFFORDABLE CARE ACT AND TO TAKE THE SENATE FROM CONTROL OF HARRY REID THAT WILL PUT A “CHOKER ON THE JOKER” IN THE WHITE HOUSE TO MAKE HIM THE LAMEST OF LAME DUCK PRESIDENTS EVER.

  • Dave

    Doesn’t Cruz want even higher levels of legal immigration. I want to drive up wages for the working class. We need to reduce legal immigration. You want people to not be dependent on government? Create an economy where they don’t need to be.

    • nearboston

      Cruz has stated time and time again that Step 1 is Secured Borders. No one else has come out as strong as he on that issue.

      • Dave

        He’s also said he wants massively more legal immigration. do a search for it.

        • Bruce Boelter

          The point is, once we control the border we can CONTROL the amount of immigration. Right now we have ZERO control, ie UNLIMITED immigration.

          • Dave

            He wants to trade one for another. His solution to the illegal immigration problem is to bring in millions more legal immigrants. We already have more legal immigration than any other country in the wolrd. Our politicians are murdering our republic by way of legal and illegal immigration. Both need to be reduced.

    • G Anderson

      I checked, and seems he wants to increase h1b1 visas by 500%. That seems like a lot, but what are the current numbers?

      Visas are temporary, so it may be a good trade off for a permanent solution. But do we need that many? He must have some reason besides pandering. I don’t see him as a panderer.

    • G Anderson

      ok, found it, and the reasoning. Do you disagree with the following?

      Immediately increase the H-1B cap by 500 percent from 65,000 to 325,000.

      1) To truly fix our broken immigration system and take into account our nation’s economic needs, we must put more emphasis on increasing employment-based immigration. There is a current shortage of qualified high-skilled workers in the U.S., with an estimated 230,000 advanced-degree STEM jobs going unfilled by 2018.

      2) Additionally, more H-1B workers mean more jobs for American workers – according to a study by the American Enterprise Institute, for every additional 100 H-1B workers, 183 jobs are created for U.S. citizens.

      • Layla

        It’s too late. Do you not know that foreign workers are coming into this country by the thousands monthly? In Texas, they can’t build housing fast enough. Parts of Dallas now resemble New Delhi. The administration, Congress don’t tell you about this, but it’s happening already.

        That we why we have 100 million without jobs who will never get them back unless this Congress is voted out.

      The means to avoid armed rebellion was built into Article 5 of the Constitution so that down the road, another revolution would not have to be fought to regain the country; the founders had great motivation for this in that they had just concluded an all-out war with Great Britain.

    Here is the problem with this whole illegal alien amnesty thing. If Republicans attempt to pass it before Democrats— they will simply yank the ball out from the GOP Charlie Brown that tries to kick the football like the proverbial Lucy and alter any attempt to do so and the Senate will pass only their version. This is why it should not be attempted under any circumstances. In fact the GOP should chastise the democratic party for wanting to give illegals breaking federal immigration law a pass and even accuse them of aiding and abetting people breaking said law.

  • Barfco

    Sure you might win in November but be assured after another two years of a do nothing congress that will follow you guys will get your azzes kicked by Hillary in 2016. The polls aren’t changing. Almost every poll I’ve seen including the one today and yesterday looks like you guys will get stoned to death. You guys will go extinct shortly after that and the only place you’ll be able to see a Republican is in the Smithsonian next to the Neanderthal exhibit.

    • SpecialAgent

      Grandma Hillary who lied about Benghazi? That Hillary? Yawn.

      • Barfco

        Keep putting you eggs in that Benghazi basket which is going nowhere because on election you guys are going to be looking like this again. Don’t take my word for it – go check the polls!!

            Guess what. People don’t give a sh?t.

          • SpecialAgent

            If you mean colored people not giving a sh?t about Hillary you got that right. She is too white and old for them to show up in droves to vote. People are mad about the lies. Yes.

          The polls? Why because she won against Jeb Bush? LOL

          • Barfco

            And every other candidate in a very important state called Florida. She’s beating Greazeball Cruz by almost 30 points.

  • Defiant

    Boehner must know he’s hated by his own party…just go Democrat, guy…

    • SpecialAgent

      It would be funny if he went democrat and then voted against what they wanted. What would be funnier is if more republicans did that and followed him. They could take control of the House and Senate votes that way.

    • Layla

      He knows, believe me.

  • bw1

    sounds like cruz wants quotas

    • G Anderson

      Quotas are the result when it comes to prioritizing and establishing immigration (legal) numbers. It is not good or bad, simply a fact. You can’t just say “line up here, first 10,000 get in,” right?

    John Boehner should have gone months ago. He is not a Conservative – he is not acting for the country nor the Tea Parties nor even the wimpy Republicans. We need someone in the Speakership who has common sense, loyalty to this nation and to the Constitution. No amnesty – nor move caving into the Liar-in-Chief.

      • cocoon

        Frank,
        There is very little I can say that you wouldn’t argue.
        Cruz has strong feelings about his Conservative beliefs, argues the ideals very well and is not afraid to lose his seat if people disagree. The problem I and many others have is with politicians who say one thing and do another once elected. I hope you vote for someone who is willing to lose based in his or her ideas and is willing to lose their seat if their ideas don’t sell to American people.
        Have a good life….

  • G Anderson

    Cruz’ reasoning for increasing h1b1 visas:

    Immediately increase the H-1B cap by 500 percent from 65,000 to 325,000.

    1) To truly fix our broken immigration system and take into account
    our nation’s economic needs, we must put more emphasis on increasing
    employment-based immigration. There is a current shortage of qualified
    high-skilled workers in the U.S., with an estimated 230,000
    advanced-degree STEM jobs going unfilled by 2018.

    2) Additionally, more H-1B workers mean more jobs for American workers –
    according to a study by the American Enterprise Institute, for every
    additional 100 H-1B workers, 183 jobs are created for U.S. citizens.

    • Layla

      Anderson, we’ve got a million Americans out of the jobs market that are NEVER going to get them back if amnesty/legalization is allowed. Demorats must be voted out for forcing Obamacare on everybody; Repugs must go because of amnesty.

      Vote Congress out, both sides, if you want to save this country and our families. They care more about illegals and the US Chamber than they do about any of us.

      Nobody is paying attention to the number of visas being granted for foreign workers now. Dallas is becoming New Delhi, while American families are falling into bankruptcy.

      VOTE THEM ALL OUT.

    Guess the “Courage Campaign Super PAC” needs to bring in a few more donations, since they’re skimping on ink in their ads.

    “They shut down government for 16 days.” Ink-saving maneuver to drop “because Obama had already warned there would be NO concessions made. No spending caps, ever, etc. Yep, WE know we’re living on borrowed time due to all the trillions we’re going in debt for, but Americans don’t know it…until the economy collapses, so let’s run with the disinformation campaign. Put in all on the other side!!!!

    “….over and over again to defund Obamacare” – ink-saving maneuver “but us Leftists KNOW who’s going to really fund it, the taxpayers!!”

    “…refuse to raise the minimum wage” – ink-saving maneuver “we know it’s a propaganda tool, and H. Obama has for all practical purposes destroyed jobs and a hike like that will finish off the jobs left but let’s not discuss the facts — it really plays well with folks”.

    ….thousands of dollars from the NRA” – ink-saving maneuver. WE know the way to totalitarianism HAS to involve disarming of the citizens, but let’s milk it for all it’s worth. Most folks don’t understand what lies beneath anyway!”

    ….”oppose a woman’s right to choose” ink-saving — to “choose infanticide/murder of their infant. And NEVER call it murder, or an infant. Remember, it’s a blob! Don’t bring out the fact that contraception would be the real “choice”, not infanticide. And keep hammering anyone who brings out these facts. Remember, it’s all about perception, propaganda. The ends justify the means, after all!”

    The Republican party has done a huge disservice to itself, for taking the position against the unemployment extension bill in the senate. With 2.6 Million angry potential voters having been affected by their refusal to pass the bill; the coming election will prove to be the Republican’s downfall. These families were left hung out to dry since late last December, and they will not forget the anguish that they have suffered because of it. Many of these families have become ruined financially, they have witnessed their credit being destroyed, they have faced evictions, home foreclosures, personal bankruptcy, and homelessness. How can they not forget which party was at fault for this? The Republicans have been using these families for political leverage, and bargaining chips, to further their party’s political agenda. They have shown their party’s true distain for the Average American family, and the suffering that these families have been going through being jobless without benefits to support their children. Senators like John Boehner are what makes the Republican party look bad in the people’s eyes. As a “FORMER” Republican of many years, I can honestly say that I will NEVER vote for another Republican again, and actively persuade my friends and family not to likewise. The Republican party will find itself VOTED OUT in the next election.

    • Jeffrey2099

      All the polls and Nate Silver say your wrong. The best the Democrats can hope for is to maintain control of the senate which is going to be an uphill battle. The Benghazi scandal coming back to the front page isn’t helping them either. The pendulum is now swinging back to the right.

      • Joe Guzman

        Benghazi again. What about all who died in embassy attacks during the Bush/Cheney horrid 8 years? And those who died in Iraq at the altar of lies and war profittering? Limited memory perhaps? Where was the GOP’s umbrage then?

          • manthelifeboats

            If the Tea Party gets so much attention from the consortium of progressives, moochers, commies and low info libs that they get concerned, riled, agitated, it has to be a good thing. A very small percentage of moderate/conservative electorate is actually actively engaged in its activities, promotion and funding. The moonbats attribute influence to this group far out of proportion to its numbers and true power. As the Bush Whacking and scapegoating becomes more ineffectual, they resort to a new scapegoat.

        • Jeffrey2099

          Now that we have definitive proof that the WH intentionally lied about the youtube video as a the cause I think we could now have a path to impeachment. Bush got congressional approval for everything he did. He also truly honors the men and women in uniform. He is riding with wounded warriors this weekend in Crawford Texas. He does it every year. When he was president, he would personally call the family of every vet killed in action. When the Fort a Hood massacre occurred Bush was visiting the injured in the hospital. The Obama WH called him and asked him to leave. He was making Obama look bad because he wasn’t there. So Joey, that is the way it is. I won’t call you names Joey because I don’t need to.

          • Joe Guzman

            Name is not “Joey”. Keep your dreams of an Obama impeachment. You and your ilk have wished for an impeachment since Obama was elected. Keep on dreaming. As you stated, Jeffrey, that is the way it is.
            Oh, by the way, those families of dead soldiers that Bush called, would have given anything to have their loved ones back. A friendly reminder, Jeffrey, bigotry induces in people a huge amount of self deception. But you can always dream, can you not?

          • Jeffrey2099

      you sound like a shill for the democrats, not a former republican. At any rate, you have a short and imperfect memory of what your “new” party instigates, going back to the stimulus, bailouts, buyouts, solyndra funding, Barney Frank’s fannie mae and freedy mac. Unfortunately, Bush was a disaster. He kept the nation safe after 9/11 domestically but recklessly drained the coffers in Iraq and Afghanistan and ALSO encouraged the stimulus and amnesty as he was leaving office. :Let’s put people back to work, drill for oil, approve the pipeline, Many conservatives like myself only support Republican “lite” candidates because we have no place else to go. Let conservative, free market principles thrive in the marketplace, deport by the millions and squash amnesty, shorten the unemployment benefits and create temporary jobs programs like the old cca while retraining many and squash this healthcare which is crippling employers and forcing them to reduce worker hours to 30 a week.

        “Unfortunately, Bush was a disaster. He kept the nation safe after 9/11 domestically…”

        You mean Bush/ Cheney portrayed weakness which emboldened a successful terrorist attack on US Soil which Bush/Cheney failed to prevent? How is that keeping America safe? Isn’t that like ‘getting a girl pregnant’ and then saying that you ‘abstained from getting her pregnant’ for the next nine months? You sound like a shill for oil wars. As of the bush bailouts- There IS no free market anymore to a large degree- there is a ‘taxpayer subsidized market’. And who is blocking Wall St Reform? republicans.

        You want free market principles? Open up the gates to the future by allowing Elon Musk to sell his electric cars without the oil energy cartels (which you are shilling for) banning sales of his products. republicans are bad for the economy and bad for the country at large. Get new material.

    This is irrelevant to the subject… your chart is also unreadable… it looks like an analysis of taxes paid versus taxes received… very susceptible to manipulation. you can look at it per capita, gross, by area. Depends also how you count the taxes, individual, businesses, excise…

    Locations with high numbers of illegals who don’t pay federal taxes, but then go on federal programs skew this. States with huge areas of Federal owned land like Texas, Utah, Nevada tend to pay less but have more Federal Bureaucrats working there to sit on the land… People get hung up on this but it’s really meaningless in aggregate.

    What is important is that the Feds collected a record high in income taxes this year, yet still spent over half a trillion more than they took in. Then there are the unemployment numbers, boy do they ever screw around with those…

    Haphazardly using the word “democracy” is dangerous because it implies that the potential goodness of democratic processes requires them to be continuously expanded.

    I think it is very important that Congress know this issue is abhorrent to many more than conservatives and evangelicals. With almost 100 million out of the workforce, this is about the survival of American families. The only solution we have seen thus far is raising the minimum wage, which helps no one and costs more jobs.

    You all need to go in November. The current administration, Congress is unsustainable.

      The great Deceiver-in-Chief and his minions are well aware that November, trending as it is in the polls, is going to be a game changer. the question is, what crisis is he either going to manufacture or take advantage of between now and then? this is what concerns me. The man and his cabal are all a bunch of conniving opportunists who will stop at nothing, including betraying American lives at an Embassy, to advance their agenda. Beware the “ides” of November.

    The convocation of the swine. This is how lemmings behave. Right before Cruz leads the charge over the cliff.

    Did it EVER occur to these guys that the RNC can STOP funding them, endorsing them and if you have ever seen “Trading Places” with Eddie Murphy…
    …You KNOW you can dress up any mega church janitor in a Men’s Wearhouse suit put him on the ballot. Then you program it to Palinize the Rhetoric, to Bachmannize the outrage and to Cruzify the principles of the GOP for mass hysteria and conspiracy theory racists all over the dark corners of America.

    not only are these 12 replaceable, they are so easily sabotaged by their own kind, canabalised if you will.

      Cruz was only asking for certain parts of Obamacare to be delayed. They refused and the government shutdown. Then a few weeks later they said, oh shiza, we need to delay certain parts of Obamacare. So the train of delays started. If they had just listened to Cruz they could have saved themselves and the country a lot of trouble.

      • FreeSpeechIsntCrime

        The GOP did listen to Cruz= government shutdown= cost the nation $24 Billion and counting- while also tanking US Treasury Bonds- which makes one wonder; did Cruz’s “Goldman Sachs wife” help Goldman Sachs make money shorting US Treasuries? Followers of Cruz are only sweet on him because Jim Jones isn’t available.

        • Jeffrey9167

          Obama shoud have listened to Cruz because Cruz was right. Face it, obama was trying to score political points as well as save face. As far as making money from their positions you might ask how Obama is buying the 4.8 million luxury home in Palm Springs. He doesn’t make enough as president to buy that house. He didn’t have a high net worth when he became president. I would like to know how all of these politicians get there money while in office and I would like to see it reported in large print on the front page of every newspaper in the country.

      wish the government were shutdown more often. Less damage done. somehow we survived. Amazing.

      • Stephen Barlow

        really? YOu weren’t “horrified” that the National Veteran’s monuments were closed for safety reasons?

        YOu think we should WASTE $12 Billion a week in perpetuity? In return for NOTHING?

        Love the Mr GOP suit you so satirically wear.

    Despite conceited claims by those opposing liberty, we cannot change our morals, customs, and traditions without risking irreparable damage to the civilization that relies upon them.

    The biggest threat to America today is the ignorance and stupidity of the mentally ill Tea Party scumbags

  • emiliani

    Yeah, I can tell. From what I’ve heard about Ole Joe, you talk juts like him!! Nice.

    That you don’t know your Catechism, as a KoC, says a lot about the state of affairs in the Church these days. (This isn’t even a difficult issue, for crying out loud.) Well, with that, I’ll be staying out of your life … thankfully.

    Peace.
