Saturday Movie Matinee: TED CRUZ’s Surprise Visit to the Freedomworks Texas Summit

Via Doug Ross, Senator Ted Cruz made a surprise visit to the Freedomworks Texas summit, Friday:

Highlights:
– We’re winning and it’s because of what folks like us are doing

– The Obama people tried to protest the Senator’s office in Dallas and Tea Party folks outdrew them 3:1.

– There are few things elected officials like less than getting heat from their constituents.

– “We’ve had five or six lunches with a bunch of Republican Senators standing up and looking at Rand [Paul] and Mike [Lee] and me and yelling at us at the top of their lungs…I mean really upset…and they say ‘look, why did you do this, as a result of what you did, when I go home my constituents are yelling at me that I’ve gotta stand up on principle!”

– I’m really not making that up.

Bill Whittle, PJTV /Afterburner: Enemies of the State:

Via The Republican Conference: Obama’s Jet-Lagged Leadership:

When the sequester first took effect, the Democrats who run Washington said they would only replace it with tax hikes – not smarter spending cuts.  Then, earlier this week, as thousands of Americans waited on the runway because of the FAA’s manufactured flight delay crisis, Harry Reid dropped legislation to replace the sequester with phony savings – not actual spending reductions.  But today, Democrats joined Republicans to adopt our targeted “cut this, not that” approach to cut wasteful spending.

Oversight and Reform: BENGHAZI UPDATE: Clinton’s Testimony Contradicts Evidence:

NRO Videos: Carney on Benghazi: White House: Clinton’s Signature on Benghazi Cable ‘Standard Protocol’

The Obama administration called Hillary Clinton’s decision to sign an April 2012 cable authorizing the reduction of security for American diplomatic missions in Libya “standard protocol.” “It is standard protocol that cables originating from the department in Washington go out under the authority of the current secretary of state with their signature, i.e. their name, typed at the bottom,” White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters. “In this way, this secretary, Secretary Clinton and others before her, sign hundreds of thousands of cables during their tenure,” he explained, maintaining that Clinton did not mislead Congress when she testified that the cable in question was not brought to her attention.

Carney was challenged about the findings contained in a 46-page report on the attack in Benghazi, Libya released yesterday by five House committee chairman.

PJTV: Are Liberals Realizing the Dangers of Radical Islam?

HBO’s Bill Maher interrupted his show to warn a politically correct guest about the dangers of radical Islam. Are liberals like Bill Maher finally realizing that radical Islam is a threat to U.S. security, or is the liberal comedian having a unique awakening? Find out what Trifecta thinks.

Glenn Beck: U.S. Denial of Islamic Jihad Threat, Beslan School Massacre 4-26-13:

Glenn Beck discusses Saudi / Islam terrorism and American leaders’ lackluster attempts to call it what it is. He tells of what armed Islamists did in Beslan Russia, 2004, when they held over 1,100 people captive in a school (mostly children) for 3 days and killed more than 330 of them. Horrifically sad.
Russia is very familiar with Islamic extremists. Russia warned the United States FBI and CIA about Mr. Tsarnaev in 2011 (who was involved in the Boston Bombing in 2012), informing them that he was a follower of radical Islam. The FBI opened an investigation on Tsarnaev and closed it shortly after interviewing his relatives and finding “no evidence he was tied to terror groups.” They failed to discover his online reading interest of learning about building explosive devices from “Inspire”, the online English magazine of the Qaeda affiliate in Yemen.

  1. Could you smack Jay Carney in the chops? Her ”signature”…..was ”signed” as if orders from State to continue with the reduction of security in one of the most hostile environments in the world to us are ho-hum, NBD, nothing to see here, move along. What a douche because what he’s saying is, too bad for the 4 dead Americans, so sad. But it sure as poop wasn’t Hill’s fault, she was just following procedures long established. You betche, you jerk.

    And is Ted Cruz not the Man? Makes me ill to consider my 2 worthless sacks of rocks we have here in CO in the Senate

  3. ‘look, why did you do this, as a result of what you did, when I go home my constituents are yelling at me that I’ve gotta stand up on principle!”

    Oh, the sky is falling! My constituents are expecting me to stand on PRINCIPLE! What am I gonna do? I wouldn’t recognize a principle if it slapped me upside the head with a 2 x 4!

    And that’s not just from the prez down through the Congress, it extends to every level of government.

    The only people who stand on principle any more are the extreme radical left and the true conservatives (you know, the ones the LSM labels as flamethrower radical extremists who fool enough people to get elected. Can’t rightly say I’ve seen one of those in Congress for a while.)

  5. Beck was considerate and did not relate the details about the sexual torture that the Islamists perpetrated on the children. Horrific. Only ppl like Pamela Geller relate the full horrific story. But recall that Beck warned us about who is driving our schoolbusses…We need to keep a vigilant eye on our schools and train our local police re Islamists ourselves…
