John Boehner dished out a little payback today, kicking two House Republicans off the influential Rules Committee and stopping a third from sponsoring a bill after they voted against his re-election for speaker. The returning Republican members of the rules panel were announced after the election for the chamber’s top post, in which 24 of Boehner’s fellow party members didn’t vote for him. Absent from the list: Florida Representatives Daniel Webster, who voted for himself for speaker, and Rich Nugent, who also voted for Webster. Webster and Nugent, who served on the Rules Committee in the last Congress, were on the list to be reappointed until they voted for Webster for speaker, according to a House leadership aide who asked anonymity to provide details of private discussions. “Sometimes there are casualties and changes, and people make decisions.” —House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions Representative Randy Weber, a Texas Republican, said Boehner won’t let him sponsor a bill headed fo ...

Bob Crespo made a point today, that resonated with me. He essentially said you can't fix stupid, but you can force it to obey. It is amazing that today in the United States we have so many people who argue against science, and against people using higher order thinking skills. One of the planks in the Texas Republican platform is to remove classes in critical thinking skills from college curriculums. The ability to use our senses and apply logic greatly benefits people; yet there are politicians who prefer to not only refute facts but to deprive others from being exposed to information. We forced stupid to obey back in the 60’s when we forced school integration. I recall the national guard was required to escort some students of color into their new schools to enforce the new laws. Several decades later, these types of laws were so successful some folks began to ask whether we still needed carefully enforced anti-discrimination laws, and even some sane people had to wonder whether it would alway ...

I guess Senator Ted Cruz is going to run for president in 2016...are you SURPRISED? DALLAS – Republican Sen. Ted Cruz sounds increasingly like he's made up his mind to run for president in 2016, telling an influential gathering of conservative activists Saturday that "we are part of a grassroots fire that is sweeping this country." "I'm convinced we're going to win in 2014, and 2016 is going to be even better," the Texas Republican said during a summit of Americans for Prosperity, the political arm of the billionaire GOP donors Charles and David Koch. "And in the year 2017, a Republican president in the Rose Garden is going to sign a bill repealing every word of Obamacare."

This is not even a veiled attempt to force Congress to accept his amnesty proposal to give these illegals citizenship and put them on the public dole, forever indebted to the Democratic Party. Notwithstanding, Texas Republican governor Rick Perry told Fox News that the White House is allowing record numbers of terrorists from the Middle East across the border.

Ted Cruz: Obama’s election year pandering responsible for sexual slavery, death of immigrant kids For U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, the numbers tell the story. During Senate questioning of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on Wednesday about the flood of minorsentering the country illegally and swamping immigration authorities in Texas and Arizona, the Texas Republican broke down the numbers of children who were captured jumping the border in 2011 and the years since. After President Obama’s election-year driven decision in 2012 to defer deportation action against illegal aliens in the country who met certain conditions, in an effort to pander to Hispanic voters, the number of children entering the country spiked drastically, Cruz told Johnson. “It’s important to understand what those numbers represent. These numbers represent children,” Cruz said. “Little boys and little girls, their parents are handing them over not to some noble social worker trying to help them. They are handing ...

Ted Cruz Used a Senate Aide to Book Speaking Gigs for His Firebrand Father As Rafael Cruz accuses Obama of being a "brainwashed" tyrant, blasts *** as "deviants," and denounces "most Christians," his son's staffer continues to schedule his public appearances. —By David Corn | Fri Feb. 28, 2014 7:00 AM EST 480 Ted: Gage Skidmore/Flickr; Rafael: Gage Skidmore/Flickr Last October, Sen. Ted Cruz's father, Rafael, was thrust into the spotlight when Mother Jones revealed that the septuagenarian businessman-turned-pastor had made a series of inflammatory remarks during several speaking engagements.

At the time, Sean Rushton, a spokesman for Sen. Cruz, a Texas Republican, said, "Pastor Cruz does not speak for the senator." But documents obtained by Mother Jo ...

Conservatives float alternative to Boehner by Deirdre Walsh, CNN | published on May 27, 2014 Washington — Some conservatives unhappy with House Speaker John Boehner’s leadership are looking for a replacement, and recent moves by Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling are fueling speculation he wants Boehner’s job in the next Congress. Hensarling, who was part of Boehner’s leadership team two years ago but left to chair the House Financial Services Committee, gave an expansive speech last week hosted by Heritage Action for America, a group that frequently and publicly clashes with Boehner. Asked afterward if he was interested in running for speaker, Hensarling initially said he was “flattered,” and said, “It’s not something I’ve aspired to. It’s not something I’m thinking about.”

wish Flame and I were going. Roy Exum A group of Tennessee Walking Horse owners, shocked and angered over any opposition that would thwart badly-needed reform in an industry where sadistic torture and a half-century of cheating still runs amok, have just announced the group is going to Washington next month in a public protest they hope will catch the nation’s eye. And, this time, the horses are going, too. Calling their impressive group of trainers, owners and riders the All-American Walking Horse Alliance and representing 45 of the 50 states that are governed in Washington, an array of speakers and six World Champion horses will gather at Union Square Park across from the famed Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool on June 18 in hopes of pushing the PAST Act into law.

(D.C. aka Da Cesspool) Oh, Ye, Suckers. Congressman Stymied in Promise to Undo Dodd-Frank Rules By Bloomberg News Service When Jeb Hensarling took over the congressional panel that spawned the Dodd-Frank Act, he vowed to roll back the landmark Wall Street law and eliminate government programs that backstop private markets. More than a year later, the Texas Republican is boxed in. His initiatives to undo banking rules haven’t won Democratic support. At the same time, his own party’s leaders, backed by industry groups that disagree with Hensarling’s purist free-market philosophy, have stymied his plans to abolish Fannie Mae (FNMA) and limit federal flood insurance. Now, Hensarling must choose again. His chances of making an impact as chairman of the House Financial Services Committee may turn on whether he loosens his opposition to two programs pushed by business lobbies and top House Republicans: government-backed terrorism insurance and loans for buyers of U.S. exports. “He’s isolated himself a ...

After releasing tens of thousands of criminal aliens, President Obama urgently asks law enforcement officials to lean on Republicans to pass amnesty. Will the GOP deport itself out of victory this year? According to a document obtained from the Center for Immigration Studies, Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 36,007 convicted aliens last year who were being detained pending deportation. The tally includes 193 convictions for homicide, 426 for sexual assault, 303 for kidnapping, 1,075 for aggravated assault and 16,070 for drunk or drugged driving. Rep. Smith, a Texas Republican, reacted by calling for a hold on consideration of immigration reform. Why would a president let loose so many alien criminals? It might be the incompetence we've come to expect from this administration. But don't forget Obama knows a lot of these criminals will vote for his party. Addressing law enforcement representatives on Tuesday, he emphasized there was only "a window of two to three months to get the ball rolling i ...

During a runoff debate with current Lt.

Why are they closing clinics if they’re making money on providing women’s health?” He asked. ...
MIKE BURGESS: BENGHAZI PANEL MUST HAVE POWER TO FILE CHARGES... Rep. Mike Burgess said on Saturday that it's critical that the head of the impending select committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks "be able to bring charges directly in federal court and not go through the attorney general." "It has to have subpoena power," the Texas Republican told former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on his Fox News program. "I just want the answers. I want some peace for these families." House Speaker John Boehner said on Friday that the GOP-controlled chamber will vote next week to establish a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks on Sept. 11, 2012, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, including two former Navy SEALs.

President Barack Obama exulted in announcing on Tuesday that 7.1 million Americans had enrolled in Obamacare — but Republican Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn slammed the Affordable Care Act as a "botched law that has caused millions of Americans to lose their health insurance. "It has forced individuals to sign up for more expensive health insurance or face a penalty," Cornyn, the Texas Republican told Newsmax. "It has resulted in cancer patients losing access to their doctors — and it is slashing full-time jobs across the country. "At 1600 Pennsylvania, that’s cause for a celebration," he added. "On Main Street, it’s a tragedy." .

Justice Department rejects Ted Cruz’s IRS probe request By KATIE GLUECK | 3/19/14 1:53 PM EDT Updated: 3/19/14 3:15 PM EDT The Department of Justice has denied Sen. Ted Cruz’s request for a special prosecutor to probe allegations that the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups, according to a letter sent to the Texas Republican and shared with POLITICO. Cruz, a firebrand conservative and possible 2016 presidential contender who has been making the rounds in early primary states, sent a letter earlier this year to Attorney General Eric Holder asking him to “act to preserve the integrity of the Department of Justice and immediately appoint a special prosecutor, with meaningful independence,” to handle the IRS probe. In a letter dated March 10, the Justice Department replied that “a Special Counsel may be appointed when an investigation or prosecution by the Department of Justice would present a conflict of interest, or in other extraordinary circumstances, such that the public inte ...

Mike Collier is a retired business man who is running for Texas Comptroller on the Democratic ticket. His opponent, Senator Glenn Hegar (R), proposes abolishing the property tax for every city, county, school district, hospital district, fire district, road district, and more – over 3500 local entities in Texas. Sounds good, you say.until you ask, how would he replace the $40 billion or so in lost funding? Hegar's proposed sales tax would have to be between 20% and 25%. That would be more than twice the highest sales tax in the country. Not so good, you say... If you like don't like Senator Glenn Hegar's idea on taxes you might want to check out Mike Collier (D). Collier is looking forward to making a strong appeal to all voters by focusing on ways to improve the office. One issue he is finding major traction with across the business community is the poor use of the Rainy Day Fund with regards to education and important strategic investments in our infrastructure. He also wants to bring back t ...

Ted Cruz plans to meet with Friends of Abe — the IRS-targeted group of elite Hollywood conservatives — to address the "McCarthyite" scrutiny it is under as it seeks tax-free charity status. "FOA should respond to the IRS as it would to any McCarthyite request for information," Cruz, a Texas Republican, told The Hollywood Reporter, referring to the IRS's demand for its membership roster. "The U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled that Americans have freedom of association, and that groups should not be forced to reveal the names of members because that information could be abused for political gain."

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is no shrinking violet, and if you watched his most recent interview with Bob Schieffer you probably noticed that. Schieffer didn’t hold back any of his contempt for the Texas Republican and his laser focus on the government shutdown that the Democrat Party enacted was proof of that. Cruz continually noted that he spoke out against the government shutdown time and again, but the Democrat Party chose to shut down the government rather than negotiate with Republicans on the budget. But CBS and Schieffer didn’t actually show you the entire length and breadth of his interview with Cruz. In fact, they left out the very best part. SCHIEFFER: Will you run for president? CRUZ: Well, look, my focus is on the challenges facing this country right now, it's on the senate. My focus, for example, is on the abuse of power from the president. Let's take something like the IRS scandal. SCHIEFFER: So, do I take that as a yes or no? Or still thinking about it. CRUZ: What you can take that as is t ...

CONCEALED-CARRY RECIPROCITY LOADED IN CONGRESS By Emily Miller Freedom to travel with arms would unlock the Second Amendment While 2013 was a year of Second Amendment advocates on defense, 2014 is lining up to be a year of gaining ground on gun rights. President Obama continues to issue his dictates. Michael R. Bloomberg is still throwing around millions of dollars. And Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is just keeping a finger in the *** on Capitol Hill until the midterms.

At a dinner at Tortilla Coast restaurant Monday night, he encouraged House Republicans to resist Boehner’s attempts at compromise. “Cruz-Led Conservatives Put Boehner in Double Bind” was Wednesday’s headline in Roll Call. As they filed in to hear McConnell’s compromise, Republican senators made little effort to conceal their frustration with Cruz. “This has been a very bad two weeks for the Republican brand, for conservatism,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.). But otherwise, Cruz refused to admit defeat. “The American people rose up and spoke with an overwhelming voice and at least at this stage Washington isn’t listeni ...

berita hari ini : Cruz Won't Delay Senate Vote - Wall Street Journal Updated Oct. 16, 2013 5:48 p.m. ET The U.S. Senate on Wednesday put in motion the final steps of a bipartisan solution to the weeks-long budget drama, voting 81-18 to raise the nation's borrowing limit and reopen the government. Watch video of the reading of the voting results. WASHINGTON—Sen. Ted Cruz came up empty-handed Wednesday in his battle to gut the Affordable Care Act, saying that he wouldn't stand in the way of a Senate budget deal that includes none of the major changes to the health-care law that conservatives were seeking. Mr. Cruz's high-profile fight against the law known as Obamacare kicked off last month with a headline-grabbing 21-hour speech, and on Wednesday, it appeared likely to end—at least for the moment—with a political defeat for the Texas Republican. Mr. Cruz said he would cast a "no" vote against a Senate proposal to reopen the government and avert default, but he had no intention of trying to block what ...

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the spot on resemblance between Texas Republican representative Ted Cruz and another Republican senator from a different era, Joseph Mcarthy? Mcarthy, was the senator from Wisconsin who single handedly and without any merit whatsoever, launched a totally groundless "anti communist" smear campaign which ended up ruining scores of reputations and resulted in absolutely nothing else. Mcarthy was finally exposed as a fraud and died a raving lunatic at Walter Reed hospital. It seems he had pickled a substantial portion of his cerebral cortex with less than high quality whiskey. In both appearance and demagogic behavior, history seems to be rhyming all over the place regarding Mcarthy and his younger avatar, Cruz.

CRUZ GETS BY WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM HIS FRIENDS Though some establishment Republicans, like Sens.

Cruz has been aided by Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah), David Vitter (R-La.), Pat Roberts (R-Kans.), Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congressional Republicans struggled to tamp down a family feud Thursday as they approached a politically charged showdown with the White House that combines the threat of a government shutdown, a possible first-ever federal default and the GOP's bid to repeal the nation's three-year-old health care law. One day after conceding that the Democratic-controlled Senate probably would prevail on the last part, Sen. Ted Cruz still vowed to do "everything and anything possible to defund Obamacare." That includes a possible filibuster of legislation to prevent a partial government shutdown, added the Texas Republican. That was a step further than Sen. Mike Lee of Utah — Cruz's partner in a summertime run of "Defund Obamacare" television commercials — was willing to go. President Barack Obama's health care law "is not worth causing a shutdown over," he said. The two men spoke at a news conference with several House Republicans where lawmakers stressed they were unified and thanked Speaker Joh ...

In 2012 Ted Cruz pulled off a stunning 14-point victory in the Texas Republican primary for the U.S. Senate against the state's better-known and better-funded lieutenant governor. He then went on to win the general election in November by 16 points. The Washington Post called his election, "the biggest upset of 2012… a true grassroots victory against very long odds." The senator's background includes experience as the first Hispanic clerk to the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, domestic policy advisor to George W. Bush's presidential campaign, and, by his early 30s, solicitor general of Texas. He authored more than 80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and made nine oral arguments before the high court. At Harvard Law School, he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review (like Barack Obama but Cruz got the job without 'affirmative action'), and constitutional lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who taught Cruz at Harvard, said in July 2013 that Cruz was "among the smartest students I've ever had." Since arriving in the ...

Texas Republican calls pro-choice crowd ‘terrorist’ We had terrorist in the Texas State Senate opposing SB 5,” Bill Zedler, who represents Arlington in Texas District 96, wrote at 12:48 a.m. CST. Zedler is especially known for convincing the Texas Department of Health and Human Services to begin collecting detailed information on women who undergo an abortion. He originally tried to implement the measure by legislation in 2011, but when that failed Zedler went through back-channels to force the rule through, sparking cries of foul play. After a 10-hour filibuster by Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Ft. Worth) was cut short by Republicans on a three-strike “point of order” system, demonstrators in the gallery finished out the special session by shouting as loudly as they could until the clock struck midnight, preventing the vote from going through on time.
