U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) tussled with and shut down a group of left wing activists from CODEPINK on Thursday during a rally outside the White House organized by activists opposed to a recently inked nuclear accord with Iran.
Cruz was meant to speak at a gathering of around 50 protestors and lawmakers who had gathered in front of the White House to express their opposition to the Iran nuclear deal, which will provide the Islamic Republic with billions of dollars in sanctions relief while keeping its core nuclear infrastructure intact.
However, as Cruz approached the podium, a delegation of CODEPINK activists who had crashed the event attempted to shut him down by screaming over a loud speaker.
The rally, which was organized by the Concerned Women for America (CWA), also was scheduled to include Sen.… Continue Reading
Now we know who the masters are: the black-robed dictators of the U.S. Supreme Court. And we know who the slaves and the serfs are: you and me.

The judicial tyrants of the U.S. Supreme Court, headed by chief oligarch John Roberts, have abandoned the Constitution, reason, and their oath of office by trashing the plain language of ObamaCare to reach an illogical, irrational, and judicially abominable result.
This 6-3 ruling is a juristic catastrophe. The chief justice justified his ruling by saying the words “established by the state” are “ambiguous.” What is remotely ambiguous about the words “established by the state?”
The only way Roberts could reach this conclusion is by forsaking rationality, logic, and the plain meaning of words. We have now plunged headlong into the linguistic abyss of Alice in Wonderland, where words can mean anything you want them to mean.… Continue Reading
Ted Cruz offered a vigorous defense of religious liberty on Thursday at a Faith & Freedom Coalition Conference while accusing other Republicans, including presidential candidates, of taking time to “rearrange their sock drawers” when controversy over state freedom legislation arises.
The Texas Senator opened his remarks offering a moment of silence for Wednesday’s murder victims of Emanuel A.M.E. church in Charleston, S.C.
“Today the body of Christ is in mourning,” declared Cruz.
Cruz argued that the issue of religious liberty will be “front and center” in the 2016 presidential campaign.
“I am profoundly optimistic we are going to turn this nation around because of the leaders gathered here today,” he continued, while offering praise for the work being done by Ralph Read, founder of Faith & Freedom Coalition and Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America.… Continue Reading
Taking on the competition in his run for the White House, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz says that there are many Republican politicians who are scared to jump into the debate over same-sex “marriage” and religious liberty, including some of the candidates he’s running against.

While speaking at the Watchman on the Wall three day conference that ended Friday, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz told the crowd of more than 600 in the nation’s capital that he is not afraid to champion their religious freedom. He wore his faith on his sleeve and addressed some touchy subjects other candidates have appeared to be a bit reticent to tackle.
Opening up the recent debate over the passage of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), the Texas senator addressed the topic of religious freedom, noting that the bill was grossly misinterpreted by the great majority of Democrats opposing the bill, according to the Christian Post.… Continue Reading
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz made a campaign stop in Beaumont, Texas, where he was asked repeated questions by KBMT-TV’s Kevin Steele about the issue of gay marriage. Cruz finally turned the table and owned Steele on this issue.
Cruz doesn’t shrink back like so many establishment Republicans do! God bless him for speaking truth in love.
Mike Huckabee’s official entrance into the Republican race for president this week underscores the importance of a particular segment of the Republican population — highly religious Protestant voters. Often called evangelicals, this segment is clearly the key target for Huckabee’s campaign. Huckabee attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, is a former Baptist minister, and as was the case in 2008, he clearly perceives this religious background to be a particular strength. Huckabee is not the only one vying for the affection of the highly religious Protestant segment, of course. Ted Cruz made his announcement in front of the student body at the evangelical Liberty University in Virginia. Jeb Bush made his own trek to Liberty University as the commencement speaker on May 9. Potential presidential candidate Scott Walker has been emphasizing his religious upbringing in Plainfield, Iowa, as the son of a Baptist preacher.… Continue Reading
Carly Fiorina, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, has stated that if the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down state-level gay marriage bans, she “wouldn’t support an amendment to reverse” their decision.
Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard who announced her candidacy earlier this month, spoke with the blog Caffeinated Thoughts last week and was asked: if the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down state laws banning gay marriage would she support a hypothetical amendment overturning the decision.
“I think the Supreme Court ruling will become the law of the land, and however much I may agree or disagree with it, I wouldn’t support an amendment to reverse it,” said Fiorina.
“I very much hope that we would come to a place now in this nation where we can support their decision, and at the same time support people to have, to hold religious views and to protect their right to exercise those views.”
Regarding businesses owners who’ve been legally punished for refusing service to gay weddings, Fiorina stated that there is a “need to protect religious liberty in this country.”
“I think this is a nation that should be able to accept that government shouldn’t discriminate on how it provides benefits and that people have a right to their religious views and those views need to be protected,” continued Fiorina.… Continue Reading
A new Quinnipiac poll of likely Iowa Republican presidential caucusgoers finds Wisconsin’s Scott Walker in front of the GOP pack with 21 percent support and a 9-point advantage over his closest primary opponents. That’s down from 25 percent and a 12-point lead in Quinnipiac’s February poll, but Walker remains ahead of his Republican rivals, with senators Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, all huddled together behind the Wisconsin governor. This jibes with the Real Clear Politics average of polls for the Iowa caucuses, which gives Walker a 5.5-point advantage.
Getting the biggest boost in Iowa since the February Quinnipiac poll are Rubio and Cruz, who have both declared their candidacies in the last month.… Continue Reading
The 2016 presidential election will feature a matchup between a white millionaire Yale graduate from the Democratic Party (Hillary Clinton) and whichever candidate emerges from the diverse Republican field.
How diverse is this year’s crop of GOP candidates? It might be the most diverse in history, regardless of party. Let’s take a look at the current state of the 2016 race, using charts to explain everything you need to know.
1. Democrats have few serious candidates
Note: The GOP field is expected to grow much larger in the coming months and may include the likes of Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, and Bobby Jindal, among others. The Democratic field may or may not get any bigger.
2. Democrats are very old
Note: Bernie Sanders has a son who is older than Marco Rubio, a sitting senator who is just eight years older than Chelsea Clinton.
Despite his opposition to legalization of same-sex “marriage,” Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio took a stand on the LGBT side of the argument Sunday, proclaiming that homosexuality is a biological condition — not a choice.
While being interviewed on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” the Florida senator addressed his stance on the legalization of same-sex marriage, arguing that the issue should not be resolved by the U.S. Supreme Court but by individual states. The topic then swayed to the topic of the supposed “gay” gene … a key argument — although debunked — touted by the LGBTQ community claiming that homosexuality is an inherited condition, rather than a personal choice.
“I … don’t believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people,” Rubio expressed.… Continue Reading
