Cruz For President - VIDEO: Steve Deace on Why He Endorses Ted Cruz 

 

He is our best chance to preserve American exceptionalism for the next generation”

 

HOUSTON, Texas – The Cruz Campaign today released a video featuring Iowa conservative activist Steve Deace explaining why Ted Cruz is the candidate that conservatives should unify behind, and how he has what it takes to win the 2016 GOP primary and general elections.
 


“Ted Cruz has proven that we can build the organization and raise the money that it takes to actually win national elections without compromising our principles at all,” Deace says. “He is the one that can go into all the various factions of our base, whether it’s libertarians, whether it’s small government conservatives, national security conservatives, evangelicals like myself. He is the one that can put the winning coalition back together again.”

Deace adds, “This is the most important election of our lifetimes, but I don’t mean the general election. This primary is. We need to put up a candidate who…actually believes in American exceptionalism and liberty, and will fight to defend those values. And then in a general election, has the talent and capability to move hearts and minds in a national platform of a campaign and in those debates. I believe Ted Cruz has the ability to do that. I think he is our best chance to preserve American exceptionalism for the next generation.”

Hi my name is Steve Deace. I’m a nationally syndicated talk show host, columnist for the Washington Times and Conservative Review. When I’m not doing conservative media, I’m doing conservative activism. It’s because the country is at stake. When I go home at night, I’ve got three children – 14, 10, and 8 – that we are going to hand the future of the country off to. So that’s really a focus between my wife and I, that’s why we do what we do, and it’s also why we chose to endorse Sen. Ted Cruz.

I’ve sat here the last couple of cycles with a front row seat to what happens when we don’t coalesce and unite behind a principled candidate. I’ve watched what happens – the establishment splits our vote, then we are divided the entire way through. Ultimately, a weak establishment candidate wins a plurality – not a majority – of GOP primary voters, doesn’t motivate our base. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. The country goes to the left. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

This is an end to the false choice between principles and electability. For a long time, the Karl Rove, nihilistic wing of this party has tried to sell us that we can’t stand for anything, because then we won’t win any elections.

Ted Cruz has proven that we can build the organization and raise the money that it takes to actually win national elections without compromising our principles at all, if we do so with talented leaders who also have effective campaigns and staffs around them that know what they’re doing, that are professionals. And the Cruz campaign has that.

I know many of the candidates in this race on a first name basis, and it is just clear to me that the man of the hour is Ted Cruz. He is the one that can go into all the various factions of our base, whether it’s libertarians, whether it’s small government conservatives, national security conservatives, evangelicals like myself. He is the one that can put the winning coalition back together again.

And the last couple of cycles when we’ve not had that candidate, what’s happened is, each of those groups based on what their priorities are, they go their own way, and the establishment candidate takes advantage of the divide and conquer strategy.

The country cannot afford for us to blow this again. This is the most important election of our lifetimes, but I don’t mean the general election. This primary is. We need to put up a candidate who is not a corporatist shill, is not a small “p” progressive, but actually believes in American exceptionalism and liberty, and will fight to defend those values. And then in a general election, has the talent and capability to move hearts and minds in a national platform of a campaign and in those debates.

I believe Ted Cruz has the ability to do that. I think he is our best chance to preserve American exceptionalism for the next generation. And I would urge everybody watching this, do not wait until the end. Ted Cruz has already put together the resources, the resume and the organization it takes to move the country back to liberty. Let’s get on board now, let’s unite now so that we can take on Washington, D.C. tomorrow.

Jindal For President - Republicans Surrendered to Obama on Iran Deal 

Jindal for President

 

DENISON -- Today at a lunch event in Iowa, Governor Jindal said Republican Senators in D.C. surrendered to President Obama and ultimately helped him get approval for his Iran deal. Gov. Jindal went on to say that Senate Republicans are the only ones who are worse negotiators than President Obama. 

Governor Jindal said, "Every single Republican Senator in D.C. except for Sen. Tom Cotton supported the Corker framework. That's when Republicans surrendered to President Obama on the Iran deal.  Many have argued that bill paved the way for Obama to only need 34 votes to win.

"By endorsing the Corker-Cardin framework, the Senators allowed the deal to go ahead. Amazingly, only one Senator had the sense to oppose this.  It was not any of the four Republican Senators running for President, it was not Ted Cruz, it was Tom Cotton.  He was the only one who had the guts to stand up and say no.  The vote was 98-1 by the way.

"Here’s the real problem – Republicans in Washington got conned by the President.  The Iranians conned the President, and the President conned the Republicans in the Senate.  Senate Republicans are the only ones who are worse negotiators than President Obama."

DNC - First FedEx, now Avis? 

Over the weekend, Chris Christie said he wants to track our nation’s immigrants like FedEx packages so he could figure out who to deport. Today, he proposed a tracking database in which businesses that require the presentation of ID, like rental car companies, would scan customers’ fingerprints to determine whether or not the customer would need to be deported.

 

WATCH.

 

This twisted explanation comes about an hour after Christie was on the Laura Ingraham show and suggested that Republicans should embrace the idea of deporting people.

 

INGRAHAM: Well, why can't we just enforce the law that exists? I mean, every time you mention word “deportation,” Republicans run for the hills and they think that the establishment - and some people put you in that category - that, you hear deport, and go, “You can't deport people.” Every country on the face of the planet deports people, except our Party's are running scared from that.

 

CHRISTIE: Well, they shouldn’t be.

 

"Not only did Chris Christie embrace the Republican deportation and border-first agenda today, he continues to compare human beings to inanimate objects that he says can just be tracked. Instead of insulting immigrant families day after day, Christie should join Democrats who support policies that help these families.” –Pablo Manriquez, DNC Hispanic Media Director

NHDP - Kelly Ayotte Highlights Importance Of Critical Women’s Health Services

Concord, N.H. – Yesterday, Kelly Ayotte tweeted a reminder that September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, highlighting the importance of the critical women’s health services that Ayotte herself has repeatedly voted to defund.
 
Planned Parenthood provides thousands of New Hampshire women with breast and cervical cancer screenings, in addition to exams that can increase the chance of early detection of ovarian cancer, which can make a huge difference in treatment. Despite the critical health services they provide, Ayotte has voted three times to defund Planned Parenthood, and has also voted to eliminate funding for thousands of family planning centers across the country.
 
“Kelly Ayotte is correct that we need to raise awareness about the importance of women’s health services, but the problem is that Ayotte has repeatedly voted to defund those very same services,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Lizzy Price. “The fact that Ayotte clearly understands the importance of the critical health services that Planned Parenthood provides makes her three votes to defund Planned Parenthood even more appalling.”
 
BACKGROUND
 
Regular Physical And Pelvic Exams Increase The Chance Of Early Detection Of Ovarian Cancer. “How is ovarian cancer diagnosed? Regular physical and pelvic exams increase the chance of early detection, because health care providers can check for tenderness and swelling. Blood tests, abdominal ultrasounds, MRIs, biopsies, and other tests can be used to diagnose or rule out ovarian cancer.” [PlannedParenthood.org, Accessed 9/2/15]
 
Mar. 2011: Ayotte Voted For Republican Continuing Resolution That Eliminated Title X Funding And Blocked Funding For Planned Parenthood. According to the National Women’s Law Center, the Republican continuing resolution, which Ayotte voted for, “Eliminates Funding for the Title X Family Planning Program, Teen Pregnancy Prevention and Planned Parenthood H.R. 1 eliminates funding for the Title X program, which for more than 40 years has provided family planning services, breast and cervical cancer screenings, and other preventive health care to low-income women in need. Title X-funded health centers serve more than five million low-income women and men each year, and six in 10 women who obtain health care from a family planning center consider it to be their primary source of health care.” [National Women’s Law Center, 3/30/11; H.R. 1, Vote 36, 3/9/11]
  • Title X Program Funded Nearly 4,200 Family Planning Centers That Served About 4.5 Million Clients Per Year And Provided Broad Range Of Contraceptive Methods And Counseling, Breast And Cervical Cancer Screenings, Pregnancy Testing And Counseling, And STD Treatment And Screening. “For more than 40 years, Title X family planning centers have provided high quality and cost-effective family planning and related preventive health services for low-income women and men. Family planning centers play a critical role in ensuring access to voluntary family planning information and services for their clients based on their ability to pay. Family planning centers offer a broad range of FDA-approved contraceptive methods and related counseling; as well as breast and cervical cancer screening; pregnancy testing and counseling; screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs); HIV testing; and other patient education and referrals. […] The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Population Affairs (OPA) oversees the Title X program. OPA funds a network of nearly 4,200 family planning centers which serve about 4.5 million clients a year. Services are provided through state, county, and local health departments; community health centers; Planned Parenthood centers; and hospital-based, school-based, faith-based, other private nonprofits.” [Department of Health & Human Services, Accessed 8/7/15]
Apr. 2011: Ayotte Again Voted To Bar Use Of Funds For Planned Parenthood. [H.Con.Res. 36, Vote 60, 4/14/11]
 
Aug. 2015: Ayotte Voted A Third Time To Prohibit Federal Funding For Planned Parenthood.  [S. 1881, Vote 262, 8/3/15]
