This is going to get heated in a hurry. Cruz has been called everything from a Patriot to a Scoundrel.

With the election basically between Trump and Hillary, does Ted need to PUBLICLY support the nominee?

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz could be left “in the rear-view mirror of the Republican Party” if he continues to resist endorsing Donald Trump, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said Monday on “The Laura Ingraham Show.” Though Patrick was once chair of the Cruz campaign in Texas, he said he always planned to back the GOP nominee.

“It’s time for this to unify, come together, and stop Hillary Clinton from turning over the Supreme Court to liberals and letting hundreds of thousands of people come into this country illegally,” Patrick told LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham.

[There was a subltle threat in Priebus’s comments.]

“People who agreed to support the nominee, that took part in our process, they used tools from the RNC … Those people need to get on board,” Priebus said Sunday on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.” 

“If they’re thinking they’re going to run again someday, I think we’re going to evaluate our process, the nomination process,” Priebus said, “I don’t think it’s going to be that easy for them.”

Do the personal attacks on his family members during the campaign, as well as the onging personal slander of his integrity (i.e. ‘Lying Ted’) provide sufficient justification of his backing down from a PUBLIC endorsement of Trump? Would his same critics call him other names — pussy or sellout for example — if he toes the party line after the attacks on his wife? Those questions are both personal and hypothetical.

This is problem Ted Cruz now faces: his Official Party position is NEITHER Private NOR Hypothetical. Either choice costs him something… and it might be years from now that anyone REALLY knows what that ‘something’ is.


Huckabee: SCOTUS ‘cannot overrule God’

The Supreme Court “cannot overrule God” on same-sex marriage, likely Republican 2016 presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Wednesday night. “I respect the courts, but the Supreme Court is only that — the supreme of the courts. It is not the supreme being. It cannot overrule God,” he said at the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, according to CNN. “When it comes to prayer, when it comes to life, and when it comes to the sanctity of marriage, the court cannot change what God has created.”AMEN

His comments come just after the court heard oral arguments on the question of whether same-sex marriage bans around the country are unconstitutional.

Huckabee also made light of his inability to speak Spanish before the crowd. “I do not come to you tonight with the ability to speak Spanish. But I do speak a common language: I speak Jesus,” he said, according to CNN.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), another possible candidate, reportedly spoke Spanish during his own appearance at the event.

Huckabee, a former pastor, has long drawn political support from the evangelical community. Next week, he will reportedly make an announcement about whether he is running for president in 2016. If he runs, he will immediately find himself competing for the votes of Christian conservatives with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Other possible candidates, like former Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.), may also make an appeal to evangelical voters.

(CNSNews.com) – “You cannot win a battle against radical Islamic terrorism if you’re unwilling to utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism,'” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Tuesday.

Coincidentally, on the same day Cruz made that comment, Secretary of State John Kerry said that “extreme poverty” breeds terrorism. Really 01

Cruz was talking about the Benghazi attack with CNN’s Erin Burnett on Tuesday evening. He noted that the Obama administration, in explaining the attack to the American people, “edited out every reference to al Qaeda and radical Islamic terrorism.”

“And the most consistent error of the Clinton/Obama foreign policy is a failure to understand the nature of the people we’re dealing with, of our enemies.”

Obama defending muslimsCruz said neither President Obama — nor former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her recent television interviews — is willing to “utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorists.’ They do not understand the radical religious extremism of individuals committed to jihad who had pledged to murder Americans.

“And that leads them to keep making the mistakes over and over and over again, whether it is releasing five senior Taliban terrorists without understanding that these individuals will likely return to active warfare against the United States; whether it is in the case of Iraq, not understanding the threat posed by ISIS.”

As if to prove Cruz’s point, Secretary of State John Kerry told a conference in Washington earlier on Tuesday that poverty is the problem and “energy policy” is the solution: Really 01

“The world is waiting for people to be put to work,” Kerry told a conference on oceans at the State Department: “We have extreme poverty; we have terrorism that comes out of it. We have any number of problems that could be cured by energy policy that makes sense”.
