Ted Cruz on Transgenders in the Military

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said Monday that the military’s moves to include transgender soldiers in its ranks had shifted its focus away from its core mission. The military will soon allow transgender soldiers to serve, noted Cruz. “How about having the military focusing on hunting down and killing the bad guys…instead of treating it as this crucible for social justice innovations. We’ve lost sight of what their job is and that’s what we need to get back to.” Cruz asked at a stop at a restaurant Read more […]

Big Republican Donors HATE the Conservative Base

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is going toe-to-toe with the GOP establishment — including the GOP’s major donors who are backing establishment candidates, such as Gov. Jeb Bush, in the 2016 race. “Republican donors actively despise our base, actively despise the men and women who showed up and voted you and me into office,” he said in a late-night Sept. 28 floor speech in the Senate.

Ted Cruz Explains what Really Happened with John Boehner

There were cheers among conservatives over the news that John Boehner announced his resignation from Congress. But Rep. Boehner could do a lot of damage in 30 days if he follows his usual practice of giving into Obama and working with the Democrats. Instead of leading the House majority that was given to him in the last two elections, Boehner has decided to join Team-Democrat: “Cruz, who is seeking the Republican nomination for president, contended that Boehner cut a deal with House Minority Read more […]

These recent actions are attempting to rip by the roots the tenets that have made this nation the freest on the face of the planet. Yet this Read more […]

Ted Cruz Calls the GOP ‘the Party of Surrender’

What happens in politics when one side is absolutely committed to its principles, willing to fight for them no matter the cost, and the other side reflexively surrenders on every issue? We have modern-day Washington. Today, President Barack Obama fights relentlessly for his liberal priorities. Like the Terminator, he never gives up, he never stops.

Texas Senator Introduces Bill for Conceal Carry in All 50 States

It boggles the mind that marriage licenses and driver’s licenses are recognized in every state of the union, but not my concealed handgun license. You’d think that the “full faith and credit” clause would take care of that, since all 50 states now have some sort of concealed carry law on the books and the court recognizes that carrying guns is a constitutionally protected act. Senator John Cornyn, from the great state of Texas, just proposed a new bill that would eliminate that double standard Read more […]

CNN Host Says Criticizing Obamacare is ‘Dangerous’

Host Chris Cuomo is afraid of all this anti-Obamacare talk going on in Washington these days. He says it’s “dangerous.” Cuomo’s fear was revealed as he hectored Texas Senator Ted Cruz during the November 20 broadcast of his early morning CNN show, New Day. Cuomo seemed to take the same track Representative Pelosi took when she said we had to pass the law to see what’s in the law when he criticized the Senator’s anti-Obamacare points saying that since the law has barely even been implemented Read more […]
