CRUZ OR TRUMP? Let Jimmy Carter Be Your Guide

By Trevor Loudon

A lot of good people, including many friends of mine, have signed up to support Donald Trump for POTUS. That was understandable when Trump was saying great things about illegal immigration and the media was telling us Ted Cruz couldn’t win.

Now its very clear that Cruz can, and most probably will win, and Donald Trump has revealed himself as more “progressive” than principled.

In my view, restoring the US Constitution would solve the bulk of America’s social, economic and political problems in one fell swoop.

Ted Cruz memorized the entire Constitution at age 14. He has fought several important court battles to preserve it. Senator Cruz lives, eats and breathes the Constitution.

How many times have you ever heard Donald Trump even mention it?

Ever Looked at Ted Cruz's Resume?

By Reaganite Republican

Say what you will about Ted Cruz, but the Senator from Texas is the only man in the current presidential field who has spent his entire life defending the United States Constitution.

He went to the Senate promising he wasn't going there to make friends, but instead pledged to rattle the cages of the establishment. And, unlike 99.9% of the politicos who make it to D.C., he kept his promises:

QOTD: "If you happen to be a WWE or UFC fan, the upcoming Saturday night Republican debate in New Hampshire is likely to look familiar. It’s going to be a bloodbath and everyone on the stage is will be targeting Cruz because of [the 'Carson dropping out' rumor]. He had better be well prepared with the facts and the timeline of events surrounding this Carson dropping out rumor. He will pay a price if he’s not fully prepared. I have confidence he will be, but it will likely not matter to the other candidates, or the so-called moderators. We’ll just see if they keep a handle on things or stoke the fires of discontent, which is more likely, being that everyone except the voters hate Cruz and would love to take him out.

So, in short, I was wrong to jump on Cruz and his staff so prematurely. I now recant my criticism of Senator Cruz and his campaign staff – and here’s the reason why. Many of you may already know this, but I feel compelled to right my own wrong.

On Wednesday, Trevor Loudon posted the timeline of events that led to the misunderstanding. And that’s exactly what it was – a terrible misunderstanding. And the way things look now for the Carson campaign with staff be slashed and leaving for greener pastures, these folks may indeed know something we don’t." --Brent Smith

THANKS, OPEN BORDERS LOBBY: Biggest Drug Bust In NJ History Tied To Mexican Cartels

By J.P. Carroll

A historic drug bust led by multiple authorities from New York and New Jersey has resulted in the seizure of $2.4 million worth of heroin and the arrest of four dealers tied to Mexican drug cartels.

NICE WORK, LI'L FALWELL: Evangelical Trump Drops F-Bomb in Major Speech With Kids in Audience

Last week, Iowa evangelical leader Robert Vander Plaats expressed surprise and confusion over the endorsement of Donald Trump by Jerry Falwell's son:

I’m just confused and flabbergasted by the endorsement. I don’t think his endorsement is going to move people. I think when people see Trump is not a conservative—he’s pro-choice. He’s not going to stand up for marriage. He’s not going to stand up to an activist court. He wants to make deals with the establishment and he’s shown judgment and temperament that people are very concerned [about].

As if to reinforce the notion that Trump is an opportunistic chameleon, today Mr. Trump dropped the F-bomb in a major speech in front of thousands of children.

Yes, Rubio's Amnesty bill provided legal status, work permits for criminals

By Jeremy Beck

Fact Check's Robert Farley looked into Ted Cruz's claim that Marco Rubio's immigration bill would have granted legal status (and work permits) to criminal aliens. Farley's piece, "Cruz Distorts Rubio's Immigration Stance," was picked up by USA Today and The Huffington Post among others.

Farley concluded that, "one could argue that Rubio’s plan would allow those convicted of some misdemeanor crimes to obtain legal residency, but Cruz’s blanket claim that Rubio “advocates amnesty for criminals who are here illegally” omits the criminal exceptions that Rubio has outlined."

U.N. TO OBAMA BFF IRAN: Hey, if you could stop raping and executing 9-year olds, that would be greaaaaaaaaat

By Russ Read

The U.N. body charged with protecting the rights of children has told the government of Iran that its laws allowing sex with girls as young as 9-years-old and capital punishment of minors must be changed.

The U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child announced it’s condemnation of Iran’s practices Thursday after 18 experts completed a review of 14 countries, including Iran. Iran’s current law allows the state to execute minors for capital crimes, a violation of international agreements as well as the forced marriage of young girls.

In this case she made a choice. She made a choice to have a private server, she made a choice to use it with highly sensitive material, she made a choice to receive and re-transmit documents that should have been classified and have later been classified. These choices are what the prosecution will really be about." --Rep. Darrell Issa

HIJRAH: Why Is Small Town America Being Flooded With Islamic "Refugees"?

By Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Looks like my old stomping grounds in Montana are heating up. People there are not taking Obama’s plan to force refugees on them lying down. There was a protest in Missoula, Montana at 10 a.m. this morning over that very issue. It is just one of many battles brewing out there in small town America.

Small towns in the sparsely populated parts of America are the perfect place to relocate these refugees. Especially if your agenda includes politically terraforming the country. The West is historically conservative in their politics. Many are Republicans and Libertarians. Even the Democrats hearken back to an earlier time when they were more conservative in nature. Obama and the Democrats can’t have that. They need to have an entire country willing to submit to Marxist diktats. They need areas seeded with those who will vote Democrat and ensure that they stay in power no matter what.

VILE: Torrent of Appalling, Anti-Israel Screeds Discovered in Hillary Email Dump

By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Server dump reveals Clinton confidants savaging Prime Minister and plotting against Israel

Earlier this week, I wrote about Hillary Clinton’s interactions with Sid Blumenthal and her troubling praise of his son, Max Blumenthal’s anti-Israel agenda. Mr. Blumenthal, one of her most trusted advisers, sent her dozens of anti-Israel articles, ideas and advice during her time as Secretary of State. But the stream of anti-Israel advice received by Ms. Clinton was much more comprehensive. Now, we see emails between Ms. Clinton and other advisors and the results are equally appalling.

"Select, Do Not Settle"

By Dan from New York

When I was a kid growing up in NYC, a big men’s clothing store (Barney’s) used this as its tagline: “Select, Don’t Settle.” Many years later, the thought now applies to Ted Cruz. It about sums it up for me. He’s going to be a great president. The antidote to eight dismal years of Obama’s regime. And best of all...

RUBIO ON UNIVISION: I Will Keep Obama's Executive Amnesty In Place Until We Pass Amnesty

By Julia Hahn

In a little-noticed interview late last year with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) declared that, as President, he would keep Barack Obama’s executive amnesty for DREAMers in place until it was permanently codified through legislation.

Rubio said, in part:

Today's Larwyn's Linx sponsored by: #ConstitutionMan: Ted Cruz for President

QOTD: "After suppressing his inner rage at having been beaten for about 24 hours, Trump broke loose with a bizarre Twitter barrage accusing Cruz of having stolen the caucus from him. Trump’s accusation of fraud are predictably lame, bitter, and lacking in credibility. Since no one is claiming that Cruz’s people actually stole votes or falsified the results, all this amounts to is comical and childish sour grapes, especially since they come from a candidate that has spent the last six months hurling abuse at any and all rivals.

Perhaps Trump’s fans will buy into his sense of grievance, but it remains to be seen whether this sort of thing, which reflects the flip side of the confident, brash personality that voters seemed to like, will do him any good. But whether this is one more misstep by Trump in the wake of his foolish debate boycott or not, it’s pretty clear that Cruz won’t be forming any coalition with him." --Jonathan S. Tobin
