Choose Cruz

Cruz: His Momma is Natural Born. Thus, So is He.

Choose Cruz

Stunning pundits who said a conservative could not score high in New Hampshire, congrats to Ted Cruz for finishing strong in the primary.

Okay folks, here is why Ted Cruz is eligible to be president according to the Constitution. First, I wish to give a shout-out to my dear friend, Mike “Mr Constitution” Holler, author of “The Constitution Made Easy.” Mike explained and confirmed Cruz’s eligibility.

In a nutshell, the first immigration law passed by Congress and signed by George Washington says, “And the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens…” An additional qualification is that the father of such children must have lived at some time in the US. There you have it folks.

The Congressional Research Service published a paper on this question.

T. Boone Pickens On Obama Oil Tax: “Dumbest Idea Ever”

The Obama administration’s proposed $10.25 per barrel oil tax adds up to approximately $32 billion a year, and critics are coming out of the woodwork in defense of both the oil industry and end users who would foot the bill for transportation system reforms-but it may be a moot point since the effort will simply be killed off by Congress.

At the end of the day, this proposal is simply meant to start a discussion and possibly add to the Obama environmental legacy. The proposal has sparked immediate backlash, with critics blasting it as an impossible production tax, the death knell for the already struggling oil industry, and an unfair policy that would render gas at the pumps more expensive for consumers.

Oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens has sensationally dubbed the Obama proposal “the dumbest idea ever.”

The $32 billion tax per year would be consistent with a production tax, tweeted Ed Crooks, the energy editor of The Financial Times.

More LIES: Viral video slamming Ted Cruz is a big fat fake

With all of the bizarre rabid hatred for Ted Cruz, one would think that his sworn enemies would be able to find something bad about him that was actually true. In the latest anti-Ted smear piece at the Conservative Treehouse, a video featured by our friend “sundance” lies, lies, lies about Ted Cruz.

Created by the presumably well-funded Niskey whose Twitter account @NiskeyTV was born to hero-worship Donald Trump, the video had over 30,000 views at the time of this writing, gaining over 1,500 overnight.

Niskey’s technique is taking Ted Cruz’s words out of context and presenting them as flip flops. Whether the issue is Domestic Surveillance, Amnesty, or a federal registry for gun owners; Niskey turns Ted Cruz’s consistent statements into inconsistent statements.

The Council Has Spoken!! Our Watcher’s Council Results – 02/12/16

The Watcher’s Council

Choose Cruz

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match-up.

The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles. – Jeff Cooper, Art Of The Rifle

What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms. – Thomas Jefferson in a letter to James Madison

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. – William Pitt the Younger, Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783

This week’s winning essay is Stately McDaniel Manor’s Schools and Concealed Carry: Overregulation and Micromanagement . It is a characteristic of bureaucracy that even in pursuit of common sense, desirable goals they almost always manage to gum up the works! Mike McDaniel’s excellent piece does a fine job of showing how that can work. Here’s a slice:

Connecting the Dots: Beyoncé, Cop Killers, Gun Control, and Panera Bread

By: Dan Lyman | Western Free Press

B22

Let’s blame Beyoncé and her anti-police bonanza at the Stupor Bowl for this bloody week. I’m okay with doing that. She poured gasoline on the fires of cop hatred for 112 million Americans to see, and just a few days later, two of Maryland’s finest were shot to death by a deranged murderer. In the last week alone, 11 officers have been shot, 6 of whom have died thus far.

Even CNN took notice of the particularly excessive carnage, but lacked the journalistic integrity to connect the dots between the NFL’s green-lighting of flagrant Black Panther exaltation, and the subsequent brutal assault on law enforcement across the nation.

“Gunfire claimed the lives of at least five on-duty officers in an unusually deadly week for U.S. law enforcement. In four days, five officers were killed in the line of duty in shootings around the country, more than doubling the number of officers who have died by gunfire so far this year.”

WATCH: Debunking anti-Cruz myths (video)

Ted Cruz AG hearing

Ted Cruz grills Justice Department for targeting gun owners with ‘Operation Choke Point’ via TruthandAction.org

There are quite a few rumors floating around in social media about Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz.

Americans are used to the mainstream media lying about Ted Cruz (see here, here & here for just some examples.) But it is particularly painful when the lies come from supposed truth-tellers. The largest culprits starting and perpetuating anti-Cruz falsehoods are sundance of the Conservative Treehouse and Dianne Marshall of the Marshall Report. They blatantly lie, or tell cherry-picked half truths, which are promptly disseminated in social media by an army of bullies who are seemingly not interested in civil debate.

Why create false stories if the candidate is so bad?

The clearly coordinated effort is particularly disturbing because: 1.) it frankly smashes conventional wisdom that ad hominem baseless attacks are the tool of the left – not the principled right, and 2.) the social media bullies may serve to intimidate people from posting positive stories or opinions about Ted Cruz.

Here are some of the most persistent lies, myths and rumors about Ted Cruz:

The Watcher’s Council

Yes, it’s time to present this week’s Statuette of Shame, The Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the Statuette of Shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were particularly slimy and despicable, but only one of them could win… and the votes are in and we have our winner… the envelope please…

The Ultra-sensitive Baby Killing Warriors At NARAL!!

The Right Planet: My nominee for Weasel of the Week would have to be the far-left, militant pro-abortion group NARAL (National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League) for their epic intersectional meltdown on Twitter over a Doritos Super Bowl ad that featured a pregnant woman receiving an ultrasound. NARAL was severely “microaggressed” over the Dororitos commercial for deploying the ever-dreaded “antichoice” tactic of “humanizing fetuses.” Apparently human fetuses are too humany, or something.

Oh, but it didn’t end there, oh dear masses. The perpetually aggrieved social justice warriors at NARAL also took great umbrage over the blatant patriarchal oppression embedded in a Hyundai ad. Additionally, NARAL called out Snickers for their despicable “transphobic” objectification of women. Will the exploitation and oppression ever end?

*snickers*

Personally, I think NARAL needs to chillax and eat a Snickers. They’re delicious, and gender-neutral … not to mention nutty. Just like NARAL.

Nice Deb: I nominate NARAL for going on an unhinged Twitter rampage during the Super Bowl over the commercials.

During the big game yesterday, NARAL’s Twitter account “live-tweeted” reactions to the highly anticipated Super Bowl commercials, exposing themselves yet again to be the angry, humorless scolds we all know them to be. The pro-abortion outfit chastised advertisers over the most micro of “microaggressions” and their SJW followers on Twitter retweeted their complaints.

In their most absurd Tweet, they attacked Doritos for showing an Ultrasound image image of a baby.

The Doritos ad in question showed a father eating Doritos while his pregnant wife received an ultrasound. The baby reacts strongly to the Doritos whenever Dad gets close with a chip. At the end, the baby physically launches itself out of the womb to try to get Doritos.

NARAL denounced the Doritos ad for using the ” #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless, moms as uptight.”

That’s right, they were upset because Doritos had the presumption to characterize a human baby as… human.

These abortion fanatics are particularly soulless and ghoulish weasels – but weasels nonetheless.


Ahh… not that it matters, but I neither watch the Superbowl or eat Doritos, nor do I particularly care about either one. But what I do very much care about is the innate perversity of those who somehow managed to find a right to gay marriage in the US Constitution but were unable to find a right to life for a baby. Perhaps that’s because unlike NARAL or same sex activists, children still in the womb are unable to bribe politicians or vote.

Oddly, the same folks who vociferously insist that same sex marriage ‘doesn’t hurt anyone’ and that it’s simply a matter of free choice, get quite purple in the face when anyone suggests the same about a child in the womb waiting to be born. Or that trafficking in the body parts of these infants is something the government ought to be funding, which is another reason groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood become literally choking with rage when anyone has the temerity to suggest that a fetus, even one due to emerge from the womb in a matter of days is actually human. After all, these people have a living to make, even if it involves living off off the sale of other people’s bodies… also known in another context as the pimp’s rationale.

Our president, of course, takes this one step further and actually supports infanticide, a place too far for even NARAL to be willing to go.

Again, another confession. I am not someone who thinks abortion ought to be outlawed totally. Non-consensual sex happens, health issues can intervene and sometimes people make mistakes who simply haven’t the means or maturity to have a child at a given time in life. That’s why I’ve always liked the idea of the morning after pill, which prevents conception.

But that’s very different from making an industry, let alone a government funded industry, out of killing healthy babies, especially ones older than twenty weeks who have a fully developed nervous system and can experience the pain of what’s happening to them. If NARAL was actually composed of people who cared at all about human decency, they’d be complaining about that horrific situation instead of a stupid commercial.

Enjoy your Weasel, NARAL. It’s richly deserved.

Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum and remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere and you won’t want to miss it… or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

And don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter… ’cause we’re cool like that, y’know?
