Ted Cruz’s Long Speech
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/24/2013 9:12:20 PM

At this hour, Ted Cruz is still speaking on the Senate floor. He is, at this moment, reading Green Eggs and Ham as a bedtime story for his children, but until how he has carried on a long, substantive denunciation of Obamacare. The parts I listened to were very good. It isn’t exactly a filibuster, just a really long speech. Still, he clearly intends to follow in Rand Paul’s footsteps; it was Paul who brought back the old-fashioned, on-your-feet filibuster, and created a sensation doing it. I am not crazy about Cruz’s plan to block cloture on the House resolution,

I just saw on Twitter that he´s going to read "all seven volumes" of Harry Potter, followed by Charlotte´s Web.

Go Ted!!!

Sounds like Cruz is starting to get some converts.

I hope all ldotters are getting to watch this historic speech/filibuster (whatever it is). Cruz is amazingly entertaining and skilled at handling people like Ditch Turbin. Looks like Turbin gave up -- I guess he was losing the debate so he took off.

I think we are seeing one of the most amazing displays of leadership we´ll see in our lifetime. This is just awesome to watch.

All the nay sayers forget the power of the internet that did not exist in 1995. Wish the elite would fight for the people as hard as they fought for their political skin. I´m so tired of ´getting the issue behind us" as their mantra.

Amazing man...we need about 99 more of him in the Senate. I recall reading all the vitriol in NYT comments sections about how evil he was...gads, those commenters have lived with true evil so long now they can´t recognize true good.

I´ll watch til the end...live...right along with him. i get bathroom and coffee breaks, though. i would´ve offered a Foley placement for him, from a nursing standpoint, too.

The Dems saw this as a way to make Cruz look like the lunatic fringe. They guessed badly. So much is coming to light. The fact that Congressmen and staff will get a tax credit no one else with their pay will get. The fact that after the debate and cloture, Harry Reid can take the defunding out and simply pass the rest with a 50 vote majority. That Obama´s decisions to delay implementation of key pieces of the law were announce in blogs and not in a press conference.

Dick Durbin, one of America´s scummiest grifters, actually did a good dead tossing softball questions to Ted.

I suspect Dick isn´t all that enamored of ObamaKKKare now that he knows what´s happening to his own medical care, and that of his friends on the block.

Now, about Ted´s content ~ he´s dropped the idea of tossing Federal Judges and Federal Retirees into the state exchanges and out of the FEHB exchange.

Means somebody really important to Ted reads Lucianne and understands the interrelationships of the Constitution and compensation ~ BTW, the judges have their own ´exemption´ right there in the body of the Constitution; federal employees have theirs in the 14th amendment.

Ted´s smart to have picked up on that change of direction ~ smacking down the federal judiciary is a separate game to be played on its own merits later on. The 14th amendment needs some changes, but removing the pension exception is not one of that is popular with anyone but folks who still hope and pray for a return of the Confederacy! (There are more than federal implications in that clause BTW)

Tell me when he gets to the $75,000 debt each member of Congress has built up TAKING money from FEHB for health insurance ever since the ACA cut them off back in November 2010.

No doubt there are plenty of people still working on figuring out how they´ll get out of that one without the USSC simply declaring the whole thing UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

So good to see someone in Congress that is doing the will of the people that voted for him instead of the political party. Too often party trumps country. Pleased to say my vote helped send him to the Senate.

#8 I am gonna try to watch the whole thing too. Been here since just a few minutes after he started -- its the least I can do. Well, I sent a message to my other senator, Cornynholio imploring him to vote against cloture.

Its important to watch, or at least keep the channel tuned in since in today´s modern world of internet and cable tv, they know exactly how many people are watching, so every viewer is counted.

But not only this, I am deriving a sense of hope form this whole thing, and hope is in short supply of late.

I love how he exposes the slimy lying backstabbing Repubs plan to cover-up how they caved and still call it a vote against Obamacare. Lord I dislike the likes of McCain, McConnell, Graham.

I had never really seen him in action before, but he has "captivated" (unlike the terrorists in Kenya, Barack? ahem) the nation tonight. Even HuffPost is enjoying him. So yes. It is indeed a moment of hope which I pray turns into a turning point in history. (Dreaming here, but who knows?)

To watch the progressive excitement/media buzz build over the day has been something. I am so glad I was home to see it. The accolades for Cruz, the eloquent and smart clips they were forced to air, etc. I tell you, by this evening, it was clear by Dana Perino´s testiness with Stuart Varney and Sean that THIS is really getting under the skin of the GOP establishment.

I´m, emailing everyone that will accept non-constituent email. DICK DURBIN does NOT accept...only from his own people. I think that anyone that does NOT accept from all Americans needs to revisit that rule of theirs. It seems that any one of them that does ANYTHING while in office not only effects THEIR little state, it effects ALL the states and they need to hear from ALL of us! It´s not like they are operating in a bubble! I was upset that Loui Gohmer does NOT accept out of state em,ail. SIGH! And he´s one of my favorites.

If nothing else could be said (and there is a LOT to be said)these men are fighting for my country. They are not the gutless cowards the rest of the senate is and I admire them for that. And the "republicans" and some of the writers on the right that are attacking him/them....YOUR actions have caused this country to come to this. YOUR going along to get along, YOUR being slightly a conservative republican (which means your a liberal democrat), YOUR living the high life and crushing your....subjects...if you can´t fight for this country, just shut up.

First time I´ve really watched Senator Cruz for any amount of time. Everyone should get on Cspan 2 to see him at work (because he is working); he´s very impressive. May not be speaking now, but I´m sure you can reference it. No wonder so many of the Establishment want to put him down. He´s formidable guy. With all the "no there, there" candidates around, he puts them all to shame. Definitely not an empty suit.

I LOVED it when he revealed the dirty little secrets of the Senate. Senators vote against things that they had actually helped to succeed with their prior vote, just so they can point to their useless no vote when it is time to get reelected.

I hope McConnell, Cornyn, Graham and McCain all get sent home in their next election, so they can be reintroduced to the real world.

To you Republicans who possess a surplus of intestinal fortitude and are willing to stick your necks out in support of a cause worth fighting for, no matter what the odds are against you, all of you are leaders.

It’s high time you Democrats get yourselves a new symbol. Donkeys don’t scatter when a light goes on. Cockroaches do.

Cruz is speaking with no teleprompter and making his case eloquently in language anyone can understand. Praise to Rubio, Rand, and Sessions for standing with Cruz. The Demos have to be afraid of him.

I too, had it on since he started. I use satelite, so I kbow the rating will be tracked and reported. It is my understanding it is based on every full hour you are tuned in to the station. Except for a short time when my husband came home from work and wanted to watch some Amazon Prime Deep Space 9 Episisodes, it had remained tuned in. Once hubby went to bed, even whilst I slept, (poor Ted), I left it tuned. I have a funeral today. It will stay on even while I am gone.

The funeral? A direct result of the IMPACT of Obamacare, it is already hitting our families. My daughter in law by common law marriage had a seizure disorder. She had the wrong skin color to get disability. Medicaid cut her insurance about every 2 months, and it took her 2 months of jumping through hoops to get it back, to only havethem turn around and do it know in two months. Because of the cost (387.00 a month) we could simply not afford her meds out of pocket. Her grand Mal seizures were so severe, but Medicaid would not even allow proper testing to diagnose the cause.

Because of the instability of her meds, the on again, off again, she was having many seizures and they got much worse in intensity. She was nearly biting her tongue off, bashing her nose until she broke it, dislocating her shoulders.

She finally succumbed, greatfully in her sleep. I loved her so much. She was not only my daughter in law, she was my dearest, best friend, too. Obamacare is directly responsible for her death.

I have a special hate, and I do not use that word lightly EVER, for this pResident.

It´s personal now.

We are witnessing a changing of the guard. It has gotten the attention of many in the Libertarian Gen-X generation. The vote for cloture will be a litmus test. As Cruz said, a vote cloture is a vote for Obamacare. But, as I said, this is about even more than that. The future direction of the Republican party hangs in the balance.

Ted Cruz is a mensch, a great orator and a Patriot!

Now, all you RINOs, sit down and shut up! That goes for all those squishy commentators on Fox, too.

Thanks to Mike Lee! BTW, Ted is now reading one my favorite writings on the men who pledged their lives, their fortunes and sacred honor. Can we do less?

My only wish is that the carping critics, who have already mentally sided with other future leaders, would stop, think and open their minds to this man. Cruz is the first since Reagan able to think, speak and respond as a coherent conservative. Most conservatives wish they had his fortitude and ability. Bravo is in order for Cruz.

Mr. Cruz Goes to Washington. Re-enactment in real life of the classic film. Amazed to see it in this century. Loving it.

I think Jimmy Stewart would be quite proud - he was a patriot, wasn´t he?

Ted Cruz is doing what Obama and the MSM have not done, that is telling the low information voters about the exemptions for the privileged few. That is why the democrats are frightened.

Ted has shifted a big flood light pointed at the cowardly hypocrisy of the RINOS and the wickedness of the obamacare supporters, and while those two groups despise him, we love him for having the .....to stand.

He´s giving a new meaning to Don´t Mess With Texas --- boots or no boots. I know Rafael Cruz personally; he must be very proud thta all his efforts have paid off.

The big filibuster is a wonderful idea. I learned much about this disastrous massive change. My insurance is already worse, and a large part of an annual check up was denied reimbursement. We are on our own and Obama´s freeloaders will continue getting stuff from his stack. Illegal Aliens too.

Thank you Ted Cruz.

To use some "street vernacular" Ted Cruz is da man! This guy is very intelligent and well spoken. Unlike our nitwit White House resident. The way he put Turbin Durbin in his place was a thing of beauty. He is head and shoulders above democrap senator like Durbin and RINO background fodder like my esteemed senator from NC little Dick Burr. I have good comment about the demcrap other senator from NC Kay Hagan. She isn´t even in the same league as Senator Cruz. Heard Marco(Amnesty)Rubio stand in for Ted this morning on talk radio so maybe he´s got his head back on straight(doubtful). If Ted runs for president in 16 you bet that I´ll vote for him. You know it´s going to take a smart person to clean up the O´Dope´s 8 years of mess.

#59 there are definitely Cruz detractors on this site. I got in a a bit of a snit with some of them. I don´t understand how it could possibly be; if someone spends just a few minutes watching and listening to Cruz, he fights for us, he frights for me, that is for sure, and I don´t see too many others in congress that I can say the same for. (Sorry for my unclear verbiage, I was up most of the night in solidarity with Cruz so I am a bit frazzled)

There was only one John Wayne.
There is only one Republican left in DC.
By his example, standing out from all the other imposters, all of them, Ted shows us that it´s almost past time to speak out. We are all being pressed into a communist state of power, absolute power, over the people. Increasingly, more good people are becoming aware of this cancerous, stealth horror against individual freedom. Ted Cruz steps out in front of all the rest of the people who are suppposed to be on our side, all the rest of the elected people who are doing and saying nothing to protect our American way of life. Let´s hope that Ted STAYS on that righteous path of individualism over communism. We need a strong voice against the stealth army of Diane Sawyers, Schumers, Brokaws, Durbins, Feinsteins, Boxers, Reids, Lettermans,
Puglosis, we must counter tyranny. Breitbart lives !

Wonderful all-nighter! Love and respect Senator Cruz... AND Senators Lee, Paul, Inhofe, Sessions, Pat Roberts, Rubio, Grassley.

I wish my R Senator, Ayotte, would disengage herself from McCain´s and Graham´s --ummmmmmm-- from them, and show that she will keep her Oath of Office and fight for the Citizens.

In NH there is ONE insurance co. in the "exchange" and it will not cover service at 16 out of 26 hospitals, one of which is the largest one here in Portsmouth.

Shaheen (Dem/leftie) is up for re-election. I used to call her and Shea-Porter regarding HC and stimulus, etc... never got a call or letter back. THEY DO NOT CARE.

Sadly, i think Ayotte is now in political class and also does not care. BUT, i shall call both.

And i will call and thank Senators Cruz, et al.

I will also print out telephone numbers and hand them out to acquaintances. Will email numbers to FL and MI family (who work all day and have little time)

ooops, correction on #77: NO mammograms before age of 50, every to years and none after 74.

Wondering if there are "exceptions" for those who have cancer in their family, or who have had cancer discovered after 50.

Does anyone really think that Government HC will make exceptions... in time, if at all? Judging by Canadian examples, not likely.

I listened to Senator Cruz on Rush´s show today. I don´t know how anyone with common sense could find fault with anything he said. What came through loud and clear is that Congress should be doing the will of the people and too many are not.

I think Americans are beginning to wake up to the fact that their Congress Critters have been/are thumbing their noses at us. Republican RINOs better watch how they talk about the TEA Party, because we are the friends and neighbors of the voters. People don´t like it when their friends and neighbors are called names by those who know nothing about those friends and neighbors.

Congress critters who respond to their constituents will probably be re-elected, but they are on notice that if they pull a Scott Brown, they are going to go down.

Listened. Finally tuned out with Lamar Alexander at the mike, who is far afield from the discussion now. Here is the bottom line: Sen. Cruz, my senator,will you now embrace your No. 2 proposal: Abolish the IRS. Why do I ask? I see that the people have NO leverage except at the ballot box, and that box isn´t offered very often. Does everyone on this forum realize this government could be on its fiscal knees in days if, instead of the IRS, we had a national sales tax funding everything? We could just stop shopping and pouf! Bye bye federal spending. Instead, what are the options for law-abiding taxpayers?

Cruz was so magnificent that it was hard to turn off the TV to go to bed. We did about 1am when Mike Lee had taken over. Lee was equally as brilliant. I woke up at about 3am and turned the TV on and again Mike Lee was speaking. Then this morning back to Ted Cruz. Cruz was spell binding. He is so incredibly smart, poised and tough. Mike Lee was equally smart and poised and tough. These two are the only hope for this country. Mitch McConnell and Juan McCain need to be thrown out along with Boehner. They and the Democrats and that POS president are willing to saddle all of we "little people" with ObamaCare but they will never, ever have to live by it. Cruz pointed that out many times and was masterful with his answers to Tim Kaine from Virginia. As another poster said, and I would include Mike Lee, whatever they run for, I will send them money and support. God bless them.

I´m going to add one more thing before this shuts off for the evening. i took one nap, after Cruz was on Rush, and stayed up long enough to watch idiot Mikulski make more idiot mass. I watched Cruz ALL night, along with Lee, et al. Class.

I now read the vitriol again in the lead NYT article allegedly covering said Cruz event and I can´t help but think that these people are truly blind with not only hate, but sheer disconnect from facts about how this thing is rolling out. One commenter said she´d welcome rationing healthcare to a few, none essentially to the old, etc. She has no way of knowing into which BOX she will fall, but allegedly, has it all figured out.

Come do my job, idiot. Come to the bedside of a 34 yo woman with curable cancer or cardiac anomalies that are fixable. But Zippy´s team says NO because you have the worst coverage in the country. It will take this level of refusal for people to snap out of it and realize we´ve raced headlong to the bottom.

USAID documents cite Hillary

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it.

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,
