Cruz vows filibuster ‘until I am
no longer able to stand’

Washington Times (D.C.), by Stephen Dinan

Sen. Ted Cruz began a talk-a-thon on the Senate Tuesday afternoon and vowed to keep speaking “until I am no longer able to stand” as he tries to halt President Obama’s health care law. “I rise today to speak for 26 million Texans and 300 million Americans,” Mr. Cruz began. He took to the floor armed with a big black binder, thick with papers, presumably to read as he talks. He began at 2:41, and can talk up until noon tomorrow, when under the Senate rules he would have to stop and the Senate would proceed to vote on ending

And before start hearing from the naysayers, I´d rather have somebody fight and lose give in. Things are going to get real ugly if this bill takes effect, and fast.

BRAVO! Cruz stands & represents the majority of the American people who remain in opposition to the trainwreck called 0bamacare! The Congress is suppose to represent the will of the people! ...Thanks, Sen. Cruz, for doing just that!

Senator Cruzs´ effort may, just may, encourage the House members to allow a shutdown of government if the defunding of obamacare is cut out of the bill.

I wish the States would start recall proceedings against McCain, Graham, McConnell, and the other Rinos whom are selling us out.

Senator Cruz has brass cajones, and I am so proud that he is my senator from the great state of Texas!!!!

Oh that all the "girly man" RINO´s that make up so much of the Republican delegation in Congress would emulate him instead of being trying to "play nice" with the Demon-RATS over and over again, just to be "reamed" over and over again...

Ted is smooth, logical, polite and a devastating presence at the podium.

As Ann Coulter pointed out years ago.....

"Nothing is as painful to a Liberal as having to allow a conservative to speak."

He´s killing them.......softly.

I´m sending this man a check just for having the brass balls required to stand up to the Marxists on both sides of the isle.

Are you with me ?

Wow, his last name should be Smith, not Cruz. (If you´re not an old movie lover or fan of Jimmy Stewart, you might not get that.)

I´ll say it, and I don´t mean anything negative in it. This is a real grabber, good for his future in politics.

His name, assuming this is actually reported, out there for the world to see. A real maverick, not that wimpy, crazy old bat McCain. And it is an excellent way for him to become more visible -filibustering a bill that less and less Americans support. Good.

Senator I´m-better-than-all-of-you, superior, snotty Reid should be ashamed, but he´s a Democrat -none available.

Way to go Senator Cruz. As you stand up for the average citizen the rest of your colleagues are busy thinking of new ways to subsidize themselves with taxpayer money. Reid is great at ripping off the taxpayers for himself.

My faith is the future of the United States as a representative republic would be bolstered if the senate, particularly the republican senators, would support the majority of the people’s interests. If not, It will affirm my impression that our representatives in fact represent themselves, rather than the people they supposedly “serve”.

I am opposed to Obamacare , but, Cruz does not speak for me.
65 million Americans voted for Obamacare
last November ,
I was one of the 60 million who voted against
it by supporting Romney.
The only way to defeat Obamacare
is in the voting booth and even Cruz admitted last week that it will take an election to repeal it.
It´s extremely arrogant for Cruz
to say he speaks for every single American because he doesn´t.
He doesn´t speak for every Texan, either.
He sounds like a megalomaniac without the Greek columns.

dingy Harry and the Demonrats should be very worried. This may not be a filibuster, but it will attract the attention of the yuts of America. The ones who would be rebelling against the current Marxist policies if they had not been indoctrinated by the Leftist school system currently pervasive in our country. Yuts like this type of rebellion and will tune in to hear what Senator Cruz has to say. That is the danger for the Demonrat Socialist Party, the chance that the yuts may hear an alternate view and leave the communist plantation in droves.

I hope Cruz just happens to mention in his speech that congress and federal employees are exempt from this disastrous law. Give Cruz credit he is trying. Noelle Nikpour from the GOP was on Fox & said her high donors won´t give because of Cruz. Please Noelle, you are the reason I won´t give $$$. She should be thinking about the small donors instead of the big $$ donor. And they wonder why the repub party is lost. Rove, Noelle, McCain, Phoebis, are destroying the party not Cruz.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound.

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
