If Trump Sues Cruz, Then Cruz Gets To Question Trump Under Oath!

Ted Cruz revealed Wednesday that Donald Trump had threatened to sue him (again) over a campaign ad, one that shows Trump calling himself “very pro-choice.” Cruz’s response (said smiling): Sue me. The Cease and Desist letter, dated Tuesday from Trump attorney Jeffrey Goldman, threatens legal action over Cruz’s ad that shows a 1999 clip of Trump claiming he would not ban partial-birth abortions, the campaign said. “So Donald, I would encourage you if you want to file a lawsuit challenging this ad, claiming it is defamation, file the lawsuit,” Cruz said. According to Fox News’ legal analyst Judge Napolitano, it’s a … Continue reading

How Economists and Criminologists view gun ownership

From: hotair.com,  by Jazz Shaw,  on Feb 17, 2016,  see the article HERE. A number of recent news items regarding proposed gun control legislation offer an opportunity to look at the way that the media covers the scientific side of such questions and the sources they rely on in their reporting. A few weeks ago, CNN ran a lengthy article on the merits of restricting the rights of gun owners which reads like the first draft of someone’s Masters thesis in terms of all of the references which are either quoted or linked to. They include: A professor in psychiatry … Continue reading

Default on a Student Loan, Expect a Visit from US Marshalls

From IJ Review: When Houston resident Paul Aker woke up Thursday morning, he was surprised to see a “suspicious truck” parked outside of his house. A few hours later, when Aker was greeted by 7 armed U.S. Marshals at his door, he was even more surprised to learn that they were placing him under arrest, all for a $1,500 federal student loan he had taken out in 1987. “They grabbed me, they threw me down,” the 48-year-old Aker told the Daily News on Tuesday. “Local PD is just standing there.” Aker said he didn’t receive any notice or warning about the loan, … Continue reading

No Surprise – Obama Won’t Be Attending Justice Scalia’s Funeral

By Michelle Jesse at AllenWest.com: The nation is mourning the loss of a man who served this nation well for many years. Even those who didn’t agree with his perspective can’t help but acknowledge Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s greatness as a thinker and his contributions to our highest court. His funeral has been scheduled for this Saturday at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, a national Catholic pilgrimage site visited by Pope Francis last fall. Naturally, the funeral of any Supreme Court justice is bound to attract many of Washington’s top officials. But there’s one who will notably … Continue reading

From: breitbart.com,  by Jerome Hudson,  on Feb 17, 2016,  see the article HERE. Decorated Marine veteran Christopher Marquez was eating dinner in Washington, D.C., last Friday, when, reportedly, he was viciously attacked by a gang of black teenagers, who asked the war hero if he believes black lives matter. “They asked me if I believe that black lives matter,” Marquez told WJLA-TV. “I felt threatened and as if they were trying to intimidate me, so I figured I would just keep eating my food. Because I wouldn’t respond back to them, they were calling me a racist.” The incident took … Continue reading

Hillary Has Another Coughing Fit

From Red State: It seems Hillary Clinton’s body is having a hard time keeping up with the grueling election season schedule. Back in October, she started coughing in the middle of a Benghazi hearing, and was asked if she needed to take a recess.  Just last month, Clinton had a coughing fit in the middle of a speech in Iowa, which lasted a full minute. Yesterday while speaking in New York, her frail body just couldn’t take it anymore, as she once again awkwardly paused in the middle of her speech to hack up a lung.  She tried to stave … Continue reading

From Legal Insurrection: Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz ARE “Natural Born Citizens”

From: legalinsurrection.com,  by William A. Jacobson,  on Sep 3, 2013,  see the article HERE. A preface by Garnet92: Since Donald Trump has recently (Feb 15, 2016) threatened to sue Ted Cruz over what Trump says is an issue of Cruz’s possible ineligibility for the presidency, I thought that it would be timely to present yet another in-depth opinion of why Cruz IS eligible to be president. Note that I’m presenting Professor Jacobson’s initial summary (Section 1) and his conclusions (Section 14) as well as a link that will allow reading as much of his arguments as you like – it is VERY LONG … Continue reading

5 Reasons Ted Cruz’ ‘Divisiveness’ Could Be An Asset

From: thefederalist.com,  by Georgi Boorman,  on Feb 16, 2016,  see the article HERE. America needs a leader who has proven he will execute their priorities in service of controlling government so the people can shine. Ted Cruz is that. The media continue to spin the narrative that Ted Cruz is “divisive,” implying he wouldn’t be an effective president. Radio host Michael Medved, whom I respect and grew up listening to, commented just the other day that people like Cruz never become president. He said the hypothetical of a Cruz presidency was “interesting,” but Medved wasn’t convinced Cruz could be effective … Continue reading

Thomas Sowell Endorses Cruz Because Of The Supreme Court

From Dan Spencer at Red State: Thomas Sowell, economist, social theorist, political philosopher, author and Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, endorses Sen. Ted Cruz. Sowell’s main, and perhaps sole, reason for backing Cruz is the Supreme Court vacancy resulting from the unexpected death of Justice Scalia and the advanced ages of other justices: The vacancy created on the Supreme Court makes painfully clear the huge stakes involved when we choose a President of the United States, just one of whose many powers is the power to nominate justices of the Supreme Court. Justice Scalia’s passing would be a … Continue reading

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

From: townhall.com,  by Rebecca Hagelin,  on Feb 15, 2016,  see the article HERE. “Liar, liar, pants on fire!” The schoolyard bully that would be president, Donald Trump, now daily reaches such new lows of sophomoric language and behavior that even seasoned political watchers who have “seen it all” are shaking their heads. He’s being so childish that it would have been no surprise had he added the “pants on fire” part to his tantrum against Ted Cruz Saturday night. If the stakes weren’t so high, it might be amusing to watch the Donald have his temper tantrums: from the bright red face, … Continue reading

Cognitive Dissonance and the Followers of Donald Trump

From: townhall.com,  by Michael Brown,  on Feb 15, 2016,  see the article HERE. When the legendary boxing promoter Bob Arum was challenged about the veracity of one of his past statements, he famously replied, “Yesterday I was lying, today I am telling the truth.” This leads to the obvious question, “But Mr. Arum, what will you tell us tomorrow?” There is something about Arum’s line that reminds me of Donald Trump, except that: 1) Arum was not running for the office of the President of the United States; and 2) Trump could say the same thing that Arum did but … Continue reading

From: foxnews.com,  by John Fund,  on Feb 14, 2016,  see the article HERE. The ninth Republican debate was the nastiest. Gone were the early debate focuses on pointing out differences with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. This was hand-to-hand combat on Saturday night with no insult unsaid. “You are probably worse than Jeb Bush. You are the single biggest liar,” Donald Trump told Ted Cruz after the Texas senator referred to the real estate mogul’s penchant for backing liberal positions. “This guy will say anything. Nasty guy. Now I know why he doesn’t have one endorsement from any of his colleagues.” Cruz … Continue reading

Some Notable and Timeless Quotes from Justice Scalia

From Breitbart:   In memory of his long career of constitutional originalism on the Supreme Court and his characteristic wit and good humor, here is a list of some of his greatest quotes: Speaking to college graduates: “Never compromise your principles, unless of course your principles are Adolf Hitler’s, in which case you would be well advised to compromise them as much as you can.” “Indeed, follow your star if you want to head north and it’s the North Star. But if you want to head north and it’s Mars, you had better follow somebody else’s star.” On following your … Continue reading

Donald Trump is Negotiating with Voters

Donald Trump is Negotiating with Voters I believe that Donald Trump views his presidential campaign as another negotiation. He’s negotiating with voters for a prize; the presidency. He represents himself on one side of the negotiating table and the voters, en masse, are on the other. It’s like he’s negotiating with a very large Board of Directors. He’s trying to convince a majority of the voters to see things his way and reward him with their votes. A problem for the voters (I’ll call them Primary Voters, or PV) is that the PV entity is made up of millions of … Continue reading
