The FIVE departments that Ted Cruz would shut down if elected president

Wow, I only want to shut down three of them.

Here’s Ted Cruz explaining his plan in National Review.

Tax plan:

At the last Republican presidential debate, I presented the Simple Flat Tax — which, for a family of four, exempts the first $36,000 from all income tax, and above that amount collects one low rate of 10 percent for all Americans. It eliminates the death tax, the payroll tax, the corporate income tax, and the Obamacare taxes; ends the corporate carve-outs and loopholes; and requires every business to pay the same simple business flat tax of 16 percent. That plan will unleash unprecedented growth, create millions of new jobs, raise after-tax incomes for all income levels by double-digit percentages — and abolish the IRS as we know it.

[…]First, to begin the process of reducing the scope and cost of government, I have identified…

Obama Declares December As National Muslim Appreciation Month

Originally posted on Cry and Howl:

I’ve lived quite a long time and every year I’ve celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ on the Federally designated holiday month of December. This is a U.S. national holiday. A paid day-off, if you will, so that folks can celebrate the birth of the person whose life has brought joy, strength, peace, hope and love to multitudes of millions of people far and above anyone else who has lived.

Barack Obama, a guy (I think) has claimed to be a Christian ever since he campaigned back in 2008. You can read any left-wing rag and every one of them supports vigorously that claim. Kind of weird seeing liberals love him so much, yet hate anything Christian. Also, to use the phrase the left often uses, “there’s no evidence” at all that Barack is a Christian.  There is a mountain of evidence to the contrary though. His words and deeds…

The real winners of the defeat of the XL Pipeline were not the environmentalists

Originally posted on BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!:

Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that stand to benefit from the Obama administration’s decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.

With modest expansion, railroads can handle all new oil produced in western Canada through 2030, according to an analysis of the Keystone proposal by the U.S. State Department. (Chuckle time)!

“Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A), said in an interview. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul.” From: Bloomberg

The keystone pipeline is actually just one of several oil sands pipelines targeted by the Rockefeller Brother’s Fund. Ezra Levant calls it industrial sabotage and, based on their own Power Point, that certainly seems an apt description.Found and more at: Heritage.  From my post Rockefeller…

Incoming Kentucky Governor to EPA: we will not comply with your regulations

Originally posted on WINTERY KNIGHT:

This is why I think that the real conservatism is always with the governors. When Republicans go to Washington, they often get so squishy that they are no use. If you’re looking for real conservative actions that produce real results, look to the governors. They get things done.


Here’s the article from The Blaze. (H/T ECM, who was suitably impressed)


Kentucky Gov.-elect Matt Bevin said in an appearance on The Glenn Beck Radio Program Friday that he will push back against the Environmental Protection Agency’s efforts to regulate the coal industry, telling the EPA to “pound sand.”

Bevin’s comments came after Glenn Beck asked, “Now that you’re in, President Obama has said that he’s going to destroy the coal industry. Kentucky is a coal state. What are you going to be doing specifically to push back on that?”

In August, President Barack Obama unveiled his coal policy in partnership…

More Great Moments in Spectacular Government Incompetence

Originally posted on International Liberty:

Advocates of limited government favor a small public sector because more resources in the productive sector of the economy translates into faster growth, more job creation, and higher living standards.

Statists, by contrast, favor big government for two main reasons. First, many of them belong to well-connected interest groups that have their snouts in the federal trough. Second, some of them sincerely think government spending “stimulates” an economy and/or “helps” people.

I want to address the latter group of statists, most of whom are well meaning.

I’ve learned over time that such voters generally don’t pay that much attention to economic arguments.

To the extent they sometimes favor small government, it’s because they think Washington wastes money. Indeed, I suspect a majority of voters would agree with P.J. O’Rourke that “giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.”

Secession Is Our Only Hope

Originally posted on

 This secession…being forced on constitutional and lifestyle traditionalists because the federal government and its obliging subordinates at the state level have been on a power trip for decades. In the name of fighting discrimination and working toward “social justice,” administrators and politicians have worked to control every detail of our social life, including our private associations and what we can say to each other. At the same time, the power elite has opened the flood gates to Third World immigration, creating an emerging electoral majority that benefits from the victim industry. Hart believes that given the political and demographic turns undergone by Americans since the 1960s, it is no longer possible to reverse the direction of our “liberal democracy.”

67 Morons Condemn Donald Trump

Originally posted on Cry and Howl:

Isn’t it curious that liberals buy into lies and then promote them in an effort to gain any advantage in furthering the decline of America? Ever since Donald Trump said that many illegal aliens crossing the southern border into America are rapists, murderers and drug peddlers, the left has predictably come out with the usual ‘hater’ ‘racist’ ‘bigot’ nonsense against him. The ignorance or lack of intellectually grasping basic word comprehension is stunning. I’ll put it this way, they are either willfully ignorant, or stupid or they are genuinely dishonest. I read an article over at entitled, 67 Latino Leaders Band Together To Condemn Donald Trump

Sixty-seven prominent Latino artists, scientists and other public figures have banded together to write a seething declaration criticizing Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Among the signees of the letter — originally published in Spanish on Univision — are Alejandro González Iñárritu, director of the Best Picture winner Birdman

In the Age of Obama, we have become so inured to outrage, calamity, lawlessness, even treason, that such things are barely noticeable. From Paul Mirengoff at Powerline: 

Judicial Watch reports that the Obama administration has granted asylum or residency to 1,519 foreigners with terrorist ties. This information comes from an annual report to Congress by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

UN Will Create International Tribunal of Climate Justice to Wring Money Out of Americans

Originally posted on Socialism is not the Answer:


Given that the hoax has been repeatedly debunked by the failure of the climate to conform to politically motivated pseudo-scientific models, and that even when the climate does start to change it will only be because in never stays the same for long, what is the point of the United Nations constantly spewing global warming rhetoric? Power is part of the point. The rest of it is money:

At the upcoming United Nations Climate Summit in Paris, participating nations have prepared a treaty that would create an “International Tribunal of Climate Justice” giving Third World countries the power to haul the U.S. into a global court with enforcement powers.

Congress would be bypassed – left out in the cold – by this climate deal, critics say.

Policies once left to sovereign nations could be turned over to a U.N. body if the U.S. and its allies approve the…
