Chuck Baldwin — Ted Cruz: Pros And Cons… “…However, if one wants to get an idea of what the remnant of the old Religious Right is thinking today, read what my friend Richard Viguerie has to say. Richard is one of the original founders of what became known as the Moral Majority and then the Religious Right. He is still very influential with those who would identify themselves as part of the Religious Right. And Richard has glowing words for Mr. Cruz:…”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz made his candidacy for President of the United States official this week. He is the first Republican to officially jump into the presidential race. He chose my alma mater, Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, to make the announcement. Readers immediately inundated me with requests for my thoughts on his candidacy. Today’s column will attempt to answer those requests. Mind you, these are preliminary thoughts, subject to change one way or the other as I learn more about Senator Cruz.

Before I list what seem to me to be more obvious pros and cons of his candidacy, let me say that it is extremely obvious that Mr. Cruz is wanting to “corner the market” on the Christian conservative vote and make them the ideological and political base of his campaign. The fact that he chose Liberty University, the largest evangelical Christian university in the country, to make his announcement makes it crystal clear. And if some of the early reactions to the senator’s strategy are any indication of whether Senator Cruz succeeded or not, it may seem that he has taken a big step in that regard.

While the politically potent Religious Right of the Reagan/Bush era is only a shell of its former self, it is a stark reality that no Republican since Richard Nixon has won a presidential race without the enthusiastic support of Christian conservatives. Republican presidential candidates must at least APPEAR “conservative” enough to attract the base of religious conservatives or face a thumping in the general election. If you don’t believe that, just ask John McCain and Mitt Romney.

Jeb Bush, John Boehner And The Anti-Reagan Republican Establishment

Ronald Reagan gained the Republican nomination for president, and eventually won the White House in 1980, by welding together all of the grassroots discontents with the Washington and Republican establishments and building what became known as the “three-legged stool” of the Reagan coalition; anti-communist national defense conservatives, fiscal conservatives and social conservatives.

The new Republican majority in Congress was forged by adding the limited government constitutional conservatives of the Tea Party movement to that three-legged stool. Practically every poll we see tells us that coalition represents a majority of the American electorate and should have been a solid and stable platform from which Republicans could govern for generations to come.

Except the leaders of the Republican establishment seem hell-bent on alienating enough elements of the coalition to………

(FULL TITLE) FINALLY: Former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani Admits What Many of us Already Know — Obama Was Raised From Communist Roots

thenisaid

I’ve written about Obama’s deep roots in communism many times. In fact, I just posted to Facebook a hard-hitting list of indisputable facts that media will likely never tell you. You can read that post by clicking here.

Many others in the blogosphere and free-market media industry have also covered Obama’s communist background. Mainstream media, politicians and A-Listers, however, seem to refuse to face reality. They all act completely oblivious to what is right in front of us all. Which is why it’s so refreshing to see someone as influential as Rudy Guiliani come out and tell it like it is…………MORE!!!!!!!!!!!

If GOP establishment picks Jeb Bush for 2016, conservatives should bolt for another party

Some conservative political analysts have opined that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush announced recently that he was further exploring his options to run for the GOP presidential nomination as a means of pre-empting all other potential GOP candidates. Many of the same analysts say there was an additional, not-so-subtle message, and it was aimed primarily at conservatives: ‘Don’t bother running; the monied GOP interests (i.e. the donor class) have spoken and Jeb Bush is who they want.’

Over the Christmas holidays I have had a number of people ask my opinion about Bush, and what I have told them, essentially, is this: Jeb Bush, like all the Bushes, is an inherently decent man. He has been a governor of a mostly red (but sometimes purple) state. He shares lineage with a storied political family. But if the goal is to restore some semblance of constitutional government to our republic, Jeb Bush is the wrong candidate, for he – like his father and brother before him – is no conservative.

The new Rand Paul vs. the old Rand Paul

The new Rand Paul vs. the old Rand PaulThe Los Angeles Times ^ | October 24, 2014 | Doyle McManusPosted on 10/25/2014, 3:44:24 PM by 2ndDivisionVetRand Paul, the heretofore libertarian senator from Kentucky, gave a foreign policy speech to Republican grandees in New York last week with a clear message:

I’m not an isolationist like my dad..The senator’s peppery father, the thoroughly libertarian former Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, hardly ever saw a U.S. military intervention he liked. He said George W. Bush’s war in Iraq was nuts, suggested that the United States could live with a nuclear Iran and thought stationing U.S. troops overseas was just an expensive way to invite trouble.

On Thursday evening in a Manhattan ballroom, Sen. Paul, a probable GOP candidate for president in 2016, declared himself an advocate of “conservative realism” and named as his models Ronald Reagan, Dwight D. Eisenhower and even on free trade, not military adventures George W. Bush.“The war on terror is not over, and America cannot disengage from the world,” Paul said.

Speaking in a way likely to make Dad shudder, he called military force “indispensable … when vital American interests are attacked and threatened,” and said he supports airstrikes against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria but not arming Syrian rebels, whom he considers unreliable.But the most intriguing aspect of the speech wasn’t Paul’s attempt to distance himself from his father; it was his attempt to distance himself from himself….

The Military Industrial CONGRESSIONAL Complex? Gunny G: Ike’s Missing Word Speech! | BLOGGING BAD w/Gunny G ~ “CLINGERS of AMERICA!”

The Military Industrial CONGRESSIONAL Complex?

Gunny G:

Ike’s Missing Word Speech!April 7, 2007 Gunny G Edit Leave a comment Go to commentsWe have often heard reference made to President Eisenhower’s so-called farewell warning to the nation, about the military-industrial complex, upon his leaving office in 1961.

Upon closer examination of that speech, both what it did and did not say, we find that very likely he should have referred to it, more appropriately, as the “Military Industrial CONGRESSIONAL Complex, ” as, he apparently really meant. At least, as the following reference would seem to infer.Dwight D. Eisenhower photo portrait.Dwight D. Eisenhower photo portrait.

Photo credit: Wikipedia“In this speech Eisenhower identifies for the first time a group called the military-industrial complex. The speech was written for him by Malcolm Moos of Johns Hopkins University. Initially Moos had used the phrase “Military Industrial Congressional Complex”.

Eisenhower was advised not to link members of Congress with this conspiracy. He accepted this advice but the fact remains, Eisenhower believed that certain members of Congress were being paid by the armaments industry to maintain these high-levels of defence spending.

For example, when Eisenhower left office in 1960 military spending amounted to 77% of all federal spending.”..MORE!
