White House Fears 'President Cruz'
Will Overturn Executive Amnesty...


White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer conceded that he fears a President Ted Cruz will overturn President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, perhaps signaling that Cruz represents the greatest threat to the progressive left. 

“Our first 100 days we spent a lot of time signing executive orders undoing what [President George W.] Bush did, and I would like not to be sitting on a beach somewhere reading about President [Ted] Cruz doing that to us, so it’s very important to us,” Pfeiffer told the Wall Street Journal on Friday. 

Earlier in the day, Pfeiffer declared that Obama’s executive amnesty was one of the reasons that made 2014 a “year of great progress” for the “progressive agenda.” He told the Journal that from the “perspective of advancing our agenda through our pen and our phone, this has been a tremendously successful year.” 

Cruz, a potential 2016 heavyweight, would run as a bold conservative. And the conservative Texas Senator has not been ambivalent in the least about wanting to repeal Obamacare and reverse Obama’s executive amnesty. 

Cruz has also, with his actions, made it clear that he isn’t the type of politician who campaigns as a conservative and then turns his back on the base as soon as he is elected. 

That, more than anything, is why the bipartisan permanent political class and Washington insiders despise him...

CRUZ: 'I'm Not Trying to Play by the Washington Rules... I'm Trying to CHANGE the Rules'

Ted Cruz gave a great interview today on Special Report, explaining the events of this weekend and countering the lies about the nominees. He also addresses the criticisms he’s been getting from talking heads and also the apology he gave today.
And much more...

Ted Cruz Was Right, Again

The usual suspects are attacking Ted Cruz for doing his job.

Republicans and a chorus of conservative commentators are dumping on the sole conservative Republican senator from Texas because – the horror! – he dared to force his Senate colleagues to publicly take sides on President Obama's shameful extralegal unilateral immigration amnesty.
Apologists for Republican cowardice claim to be upset with Cruz because, as they claim, his parliamentary maneuvers to stymie the amnesty somehow allowed some objectionable Obama nominees to move forward in the confirmation process.
Of course, they're lying.  All Obama nominees are objectionable – remember, our president is a red diaper baby – yet the Senate eventually caves to Obama on more or less all of them.  
Any Senate that can confirm a full-on racist, pro-terrorist, America-hating, kooky, in-your-face Marxist like Tom Perez as labor secretary is going to give its blessing to just about anyone Obama sends over.  Who really cares if a few bureaucrats who will be approved anyway by the incoming Republican Senate in the new year get to work a few weeks or months early?

Better than Ted Cruz Does...'

 Leon H. Wolf @ Redstate

Let me say up front that I don’t agree with everything Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) does and I don’t think that Cruz is beyond criticism. Everyone is capable of making mistakes and that applies a fortiori to politicians. I haven’t even formed a firm position yet on whether his parliamentary maneuver this weekend was advisable or whether it was (as leadership now claims) to blame for the confirmation of many of Obama’s judicial appointments. I don’t want him to run in 2016 and if he does he will behind almost literally all the governors on my personal ballot.

That having been said, the execrable public smear campaign being mounted by leadership and their blogging lackeys against him is hilarious in its completely unjustified condescension. Examples of this may be found here and here if you are interested. 

These attacks are notable not for what they are saying but because of the obvious attempt to not only criticize Cruz on substantive grounds but to remove him and his viewpoint from the discussion by treating him as an object of contempt and ridicule. In exactly the same way that liberals initially attacked Sarah Palin, he is simultaneously attacked as being 
a) an ignorant buffoon who does not know what he is doing and 
b) an evil mastermind who is guilty of calculated manipulation
of the unwashed masses. 

These are textbook Alinsky tactics and it’s depressing to see conservatives use them so blindly...

Liberal Media Swoon: Elizabeth Warren
-Unlike Ted Cruz- Hailed as a Principled Crusader

The trumpets are blaring. The fireworks are erupting. The tributes are growing.

Elizabeth Warren is the media’s new heroine.

She’s been a press favorite roughly forever. But by standing up to a Democratic president and bringing the government to within hours of a shutdown, the freshman senator is being lionized like never before.

“Elizabeth Warren Is Catching Fire,” Politico declares.

Pretty amazing, considering that she, um, lost her battle...
