Senator Ted Cruz items

Hatch Effect V. Cruz Effect

Daniel Horowitz, Red State

Ted Cruz has shown the difference between voting conservatively at the very end of the fight vs. giving voice to conservatives before the battle is over. 

Will Liberals Thank the Tea Party for Saving Their Privacy… and Liberty?

We wonder if liberals will join in the fight to rein-in the Obama surveillance state, or if they will even acknowledge that limited government constitutional conservatives have it right on at least one thing – the Constitution was written to limit government and protect the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness of Americans from government intrusion, no matter who is President.

King Aims to Save GOP From Cruz, Paul

Ben Wolfgang, Washington Times

Squishy Peter King eyes 2016. Calling TCruz and RPaul "isolationists," he said he's stronger on security.

Cruz Is a Legit 2016 Threat

Rich Yeselson, Politico

"Cruz is arguably the most compelling conservative political activist/intellectual since William F. Buckley."

Is Paul Ryan Joining Marco Rubio In Committing Amnesty Political Suicide?

Rep. Paul Ryan Should Listen to Conservatives and Reject Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants

We welcome Rep. Paul Ryan to the debate on how best to apply conservative principles to immigration reform – something that eluded Senator Rubio. However, if Ryan wants to avoid Marco Rubio’s fate he must begin by publicly and forcefully rejecting the corruption, pork and special interest favors of S. 744.

Ben Carson Rising

Governor Sarah Palin continues to hold the lead in our Republican presidential straw poll at 32%, while Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul battle it out for second place with 25% and 22% respectively.

Prayers Answered? Rand Paul Thinking About Running For President

If we are to establish a conservative government for America we have a huge task ahead of us, but the labor will be made easier if there is a principled limited government constitutional conservative leader calling grassroots conservatives, libertarians and Tea Partiers to the task. Senator Rand Paul’s comments to Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle are encouragement that at least one leader who fits that description is considering answering the call.

Cruz Cites Constitution on Abortion

Katie Pavlich, Townhall

Ted Cruz stated that without life, there is no pursuit of happiness. Well said.

Rubio Banks No Votes In Presidential Straw Poll

Sarah Palin continues to lead the CHQ Republican presidential straw poll. Two outspoken limited government constitutional conservatives, former Florida Congressman Allen West and Virginia’s Attorney General and Republican candidate for Governor Ken Cuccinelli, made the top twelve as write-in candidates – and in the process booked more votes than Senator Marco Rubio whose name and photo actually appear on the ballot.

The Intellectual Power of the Arguments Against Rubio’s Amnesty Bill

The opponents of amnesty are actually reading Rubio’s bill, making the rational arguments against the S. 744 approach and taking those arguments to the public. We urge you to let your Congressman know NOW that you oppose anything remotely resembling the Senate immigration bill. Between now and July 10, call your Congressman’s office (Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) and tell them to OPPOSE bringing S. 744, the Obama – Rubio immigration amnesty bill, to the House floor. Tell them you want border security, not amnesty for illegal aliens.

Ted Cruz: IRS Won’t Get Away with It

Kathleen McKinley, Houston Chronicle

Cruz brought TX Tea Party leaders together at a presser to share their awful IRS experiences.

Cruz Has It Right: Abolish The IRS

Advocates of big government would like us to believe that the IRS can be trusted to implement Obamacare because the targeting of the Tea Party was merely bureaucratic bungling by a couple of poor, overworked government drones in Cincinnati. Ted Cruz says don't believe them and don't trust them, and we agree.

Dems Don’t Care About Infanticide

Tony Lee, Breitbart

So said Senator Ted Cruz during a speech to the National Right to Life convention in Texas.

Potential 2016 GOP Candidates Split

Alexandra Jaffe, The Hill

Of course Marco Rubio was for it, but Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul voted an emphatic “no.”

Amnesty: All That’s Wrong with DC

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review Online

You cannot function as a country when the laws are so voluminous no one can know what the law is.

Amnesty Now Means Amnesty Forever

Nicholas Ballasy, PJ Media

Congressman Steve King and other conservatives warn that giving-in marks the beginning of the end.

Ted Cruz’s Father’s American Dream

Breanna Edwards, Politico
