Skateboarding socialist Beto O'Rourke wipes out

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Robert Francis O’Rourke — “Beto” for political purposes — narrowly lost to Senate incumbent Ted Cruz in Texas, a state Mr. Cruz should have carried by double digits. But races have a habit of narrowing when the national political media step in and dump millions and millions of dollars in free, glowing advertising for the socialist on a skateboard. Now come the endless investigations, hearings and impeachment circus in the House under Speaker Nancy Pelosi. My question is this: If that strategy did not work very well in a midterm when the Democratic base was super energized, why would it work in two years?

Ted Cruz defeats Beto O'Rourke, wins re-election battle

Al Weaver, Washington Examiner

Cruz, the former 2016 GOP presidential candidate, defeated O'Rourke, who became a celebrated figure for Democrats nationwide after climbing in the polls versus the conservative Republican and his prolific fundraising ability — headlined by his $38 million third-quarter haul — throughout the cycle. However, he was unable to get through Cruz, the polarizing Republican, who spent much of the past two and a half years rehabbing his image back home after losing the 2016 GOP nomination to Trump and his initial decision not to endorse the eventual president.

In Texas, Trump and Cruz complete the transaction

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Say what you will about Cruz, and Trump, but there could be no greater tribute to the overwhelming power of voters in the American political system than what took place in Houston Monday. The voters changed Cruz's mind. He represents the voters of Texas, and wants to keep doing so, so he supports the president they support, regardless of the past. It doesn't matter whether Cruz believes what he says deep down. What's more important is his signal that he will do what the voters of Texas want. Trump and Cruz have been through a lot, openly loathed each other, and are now virtually composing love songs for each other. Who cares what they really think? The voters made it happen.

Aided By Big Tech And Media Far Left Is Organizing For More Political Assassinations

Just in case you bought the establishment media’s narrative that the attempted assassination of House Republican Whip Rep. Steve Scalise and the rest of the Republican baseball team was the one-off work of a nut, our friends at Far Left Watch have a chilling report to once and for all disabuse you of that fantasy.

Must See Video: “Say NO to the Mob”

ForAmerica.org's “Say NO to the Mob” dramatically shows that the Democrats’ words do have consequences, and those consequences are broken windows, beaten Trump supporters and gunfire aimed at Republican members of Congress. You can view the video through this link.

Ted Cruz Warns against Privatizing the International Space Station

Kevin Mooney, National Review

NASA must work to avoid any disruption in U.S. access to space that strategic competitors could exploit. This is the point Cruz drove home to NASA officials back in May, during a subcommittee hearing that focused on future plans for the space station. We won’t stay on the right track for long unless Cruz succeeds in scuttling the administration’s foolish proposal in exchange for one that ensures uninterrupted U.S. access to low-Earth orbit and beyond.

Part 3 of 3 Before There Was Facebook And Cambridge Analytica Conservatives Had The Viguerie Company

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Much of the Liberal outrage at Facebook has nothing to do with Zuckerberg’s questionable business model for monetizing its user’s data. It is not outrage over privacy, rather it is the same kind of outrage that they have directed at me and other conservatives over the years; it is outrage that conservatives used Facebook to defeat liberals at the local, state and national level.

Ted Cruz Nails Mark Zuckerberg's Liberal Bias

When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed there was no political bias at Facebook Senator Cruz rattled off a laundry list of examples: A “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day” page that was banned in 2012, around the time that homosexuals were organizing a boycott of the fast-food chain after its chief operating officer made comments against same-sex marriage. Diamond and Silk, the outspoken Trump fangirls who were told by Facebook that their “content and brand” were “unsafe to the community” were just two examples on the list.

Ted Cruz Explains Why He Opposed The Omni-Disaster

In 2016, the American people voted overwhelmingly for Republicans to change Washington. Now, Congress did the exact opposite: pass a massive $1.3 trillion spending bill — 2200 pages drafted by the Swamp in the dark of night — that will plunge our nation even deeper into debt.

In Texas, Encouraging Signs for Republicans

Josh Kraushaar, National Journal

Sen Ted Cruz’s early pugnacious strategy for his reelection campaign hints that Texas isn’t changing as much as optimistic Democrats believe. Despite energized Democratic turnout in the state’s primaries, Republicans also saw a healthy uptick in turnout compared to 2014 and maintained their sizable partisan advantage.

Texas Retirements May Bring New Conservative Stars To Congress

If Texas elects to Congress a slate of new conservative leaders it will be in no small measure due to the efforts of conservative Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz, facing his own reelection campaign this year, has still found time to make endorsements and campaign for candidates in at least four hotly contested Texas GOP Congressional primaries.

Centerism = Total Catastrophe

Update: President Trump endorses House Goodlatte bill, dismisses Senate remaining immigration proposals.  Much as the establishment media and open borders Republicans on Capitol Hill would like to present the Schumer-Rounds-Collins bill as a “centerist” proposal, there’s nothing “centerist” about granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and who knows how many thousands of illegal bordered crossers who would arrive between now and June 30, 2018.

On Immigration The “Do Nothing Senate” Should Do Nothing

On immigration the Senate should do what it does best; nothing. If Congress does nothing the law stays as it is, illegal aliens get arrested and deported, the quality of life of American workers and their families is protected, and America protects itself from a future of One Party rule. Now, that’s what we call win – win.

I wanted Ted Cruz to be President, but Donald Trump is working

Roger Kimball, The Spectator (UK)

I was not always a fan. For most of the 2016 campaign, I supported Ted Cruz, a choice that many thought only marginally less bad than Mr Trump. You may not like President Trump’s taste in ties or steak, his tweets or his curious rhetoric. But fair-minded observers should find a lot to like in the results of his pragmatic, non-ideological approach to the nation’s — and the world’s — security and prosperity.

Trump Shoots Down McCain Amnesty Bill

Speaker Ryan’s comments that the House would only take up a bill that President Trump supports puts to rest (at least for the moment) conservative concerns that the open-borders oriented Ryan might try to force through an amnesty bill.  Trump’s rejection of the McCain – Coons amnesty plan puts the pressure back on the Republican Senate to pass a bill that meets the President’s requirements.

The Most Important Thing Trump Said That No One Is Talking About

There was one very important “this changes everything” moment in President Trump’s State of the Union message that no one is talking about – the President’s announcement that he has signed an Executive Order on Protecting America Through Lawful Detention of Terrorists.

CHQ and Ear to the Ground Survey Reveals Trump Supporters Will Not Support President On Amnesty

Trump supporters couldn’t be clearer: 71% of his base they will no longer support the President if amnesty is included in immigration reform. However, they also said they are confident President Trump will follow-through on his campaign promises regarding immigration.

The Elephant In The Room Last Night

There were many things conservatives could applaud in last night’s State of the Union address, but the President’s eloquent paean to the economic promise of America was largely drowned-out by opposition to the notion of giving a path to citizenship to 1.8 million illegal aliens.
