Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, on extremist Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show

Earlier today we reported on what Texas Senator Ted Cruz said about the sort of “Stand Your Ground” laws that allow people the legal right to protect themselves with deadly force. Now Trayvon Martin’s mother is accusing the Senator of a “disconnect” with the truth.

On October 29, Cruz said that such laws are not a whites-only law, as most racebaiters try to pretend, but are beneficial to all Americans regardless of race.

“We know that some in our political process have a desire to exploit that tragic, violent incident for agendas that have nothing to do with that young man who lost his life. We have seen efforts to undermine the verdict of the jury and, more broadly, to inflame racial tensions that I think are sad and irresponsible,” Cruz said.

Sen. Ted Cruz: We Need Our Grassroots Army to Take Down Obamacare

Senator Ted Cruz (R, TX) has not backed off from his drive to destroy the President’s disastrous take over of our healthcare system with his Obamacare scheme and this weekend he was in Iowa bucking up the troops and urging a “grassroots army” to rise up and dismantle Obamacare.

Cruz was appearing before a crowd in Akron, Iowa on Friday, October 25 in three days of events that many think indicates he’s considering a run for President in 2016.

Cruz says he is only focused on his work in the Senate now, but if he does look to a run for the White House, Iowa is a traditional place to start to raise his profile.

Whatever his goals for the future, for today he is still beating the drum to defeat Obamacare and he made some excellent points about the hypocrisy of the left, the Democrats and the Old Media complex (but I thrice repeat myself) that attacked those that wanted to delay and defund Obamacare.

Senator Ted Cruz: I’m Not in D.C. to ‘Make 99 New Friends’

October 21, 2013 | Filed Under Budget, Congress, Conservatives, Senate, Taxes, Ted Cruz, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz is defiant in the face of criticism of his hardline, conservative tactics during the show down over the shut down and the idea of defunding the President’s disastrous take over of our healthcare system with Obamacare. He didn’t go to Washington to make “99 new friends,” he said.

In a new interview with ABC News, Cruz was asked about his purported unpopularity among some quarters (like idiot RINOs, and the anti-American Democrat Party). But Cruz was unbowed by the hate of those that themselves deserve to be reviled–the latter are my words, not his.

Liberal Media Hypocrisy, Uses ‘Racist’ to Attack Sen. Ted Cruz

October 16, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, GOP, Government, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Progressives, Republicans, Ted Cruz, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

If you want an example of the hypocrisy of the left-wing media, there can be no better example than the sudden, new love that Mother Jones magazine has for a Republican that ten years ago they called a disgusting, hatemongering, racist, throw back to the civil war. Why do they love him? Because he’ll attack Senator Ted Cruz.

When Mississippi Senator Trent Lott’s political career was going up in smoke in 2002, the left-wing media excoriated him as a disgusting, hatemongering racist. They hated the man. But now that the extremists in the left-wing media want someone to attack Senator Ted Cruz, suddenly Trent Lott is good enough to run to for a quote or two.

Trent Lott used to be the Republican majority leader in the U.S. Senate. Decades ago he was a Democrat operative in the strongly segregationist state of Mississippi. After years in the Democrat trenches, Lott switched to the Republican Party to run for national office eventually becoming the state’s powerful Senator.

But Trent Lott never left his Democrat Party principals behind when he jettisoned his party. He was always a left leaning Republican, one who agreed with a lot of Democrat ideas. But he made a fatal mistake in 2002. He praised famed segregationist Senator Strom Thurmond at a party.

In short order, Lott was forced to step down from GOP leadership over the controversy raised in the liberal press. Only a few years later he left elected office altogether. The media won. Trent Lott was eliminated.

Ted Cruz is IT!

October 4, 2013 | Filed Under Gary Krasner, GOP, Republicans, Senate, Ted Cruz | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

David Gregory must have thought he would be another Tim Russert when he was preparing to tackle Ted Cruz this morning.

But after the Obama-worshipping Gregory completed the 25 min interview, you can see he felt like a complete failure.

He hit Cruz with every Democrat nonsense talking point, and Cruz aced every question.

This is rare. There has been no true conservative republican who understood the basics or ARGUMENT, let alone could craft an effective argument.

But Cruz clerked for Chief Justice Renquist. That is where you learn the basics of effective argument.

NBC-Obama worshipping Dummy Chris Mathews said following the interview that House republicans are not following “our system of government.”

The Constitution gives the House the power of the purse, PRECISELY in order to defund bad law or bad executive actions.

Politico Misleads With ‘Cruz Praises Obama on Iran’ Story

October 3, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Congress, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, GOP, Iran, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Politico, President, Progressives, Republicans, Security/Safety, Senate, Ted Cruz, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

A recent Politico story did double duty by misleading readers and attempting to make Texas Senator Ted Cruz look bad with a headline and first paragraph that simply aren’t really true.

The September 28 story was misleadingly headlined, “Ted Cruz praises President Obama on Iran,” leaving readers with the impression that Senator Cruz was happy with Obama’s Iran policy.

The first paragraph continued the subterfuge, but went even further to mislead.

Foreign Policy Mag Maligns Ted Cruz as ‘Most Hated Man in the Senate’

April 6, 2013 | Filed Under Budget, Business, Conservatives, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Economy/Finances, Elections, GOP, Government, Liberals, Progressives, Republicans, Senate, Taxes, Ted Cruz, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Foreign Policy magazine has made the stark pronouncement about Texas Senator Ted Cruz. According to FP’s Erica Grieder, Cruz is “the most hated man in the U.S. Senate.”

In a March 29 piece, Grieder made this extreme pronouncement based on the new Senator’s outspoken positions on many issues as well as on how irksome he is to old guard Senators who imagine that first year colleagues should be seen and not heard.

Grieder starts her piece with several gratuitous insults. Right off she says that Cruz is “the human equivalent of one of those flower-squirters that clowns wear on their lapels.” She then calls his initiatives and ideas “non-sequiturs” and says they are “self-defeating.” This was all just the first paragraph.

Next we learn that Cruz has “irritated” Democrats like Dianne Feinstein and been a “headache for GOP leaders.” This all because he stands up strongly for his principles and the positions that got him elected.

Does this really make him “hated,” though? He may elicit distaste in these old guard Senators and in those Senators that stand squarely against his principles, but “hated”? That is quite a subjective assessment.

Sen. Ted Cruz: Rahm Emanuel a Bully

February 1, 2013 | Filed Under 2nd Amendment, Barack Obama, Chicago, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, GOP, Gun Control, Guns, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, President, Progressives, Regulation, Republicans, Ted Cruz, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Texas’ newest Senator, Republican Ted Cruz, has launched a Cruz missile right at Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for the threatening letters the mayor sent to several American banks because they do business with American gun manufacturers. Cruz advises the banks not to be bullied by the Windy City Mayor’s bluster.

On January 25 Chicago Mayor Emanuel, a former Obama chief of staff, sent out letters threatening the CEOs of the Bank of America and TD Bank Group, urging them to join those that stand against the Second Amendment and to cease doing business with several law-abiding, gun manufacturers.

In his own letter to these same banks, Senator Ted Cruz noted his sympathy for the banks’ concern over being threatened by Da Mayor, but informed them that Texas has “a more modest view” of the role of government.
