The Secret Army Stumping for Ted Cruz

The senator’s super PACs have launched an unprecedented ground effort in South Carolina and seem intent on going where few super PACs have gone before—door knocking.


We all know super PACs have permanently changed the face of American politics. But in South Carolina, right now, we’re getting a preview of the unprecedented ways they can alter a campaign.


South Carolina, as you may know, is kind of a big deal. It has a large population—4.8 million people—and a bad reputation because it’s a place where candidates love to break out their dirtiest tricks.


Or, in the case of Ted Cruz’s super PACs, their most experimental. The cluster of well-funded super PACs boosting Cruz’s candidacy is trying out a new tactic in the Palmetto State, indicating the extent to which super PACs are encroaching on traditional campaign turf. Scissors-32x32.png

5 Reasons Ted Cruz’ ‘Divisiveness’ Could Be An Asset

America needs a leader who has proven he will execute their priorities in service of controlling government so the people can shine. Ted Cruz is that.

By Georgi Boorman FEBRUARY 16, 2016

The media continue to spin the narrative that Ted Cruz is “divisive,” implying he wouldn’t be an effective president. Radio host Michael Medved, whom I respect and grew up listening to, commented just the other day that people like Cruz never become president. He said the hypothetical of a Cruz presidency was “interesting,” but Medved wasn’t convinced Cruz could be effective given the anger he tends to inspire in long-time politicians.


I respectfully disagree on both points, for several reasons.


1. Cut Through the Spin

We’ll start with Exhibit A: The Obama administration, which immediately disproves the idea that a divisive person can’t become president. Obama has been the same radical leftist from the beginning. Identity politics—slicing and dicing Americans into various groups of victims and aggressors—has always been his cornerstone. Scissors-32x32.png

Thomas Sowell Endorses Ted Cruz

Claire Berlinski, Ed.



February 16, 2016



Noting with sorrow Justice Scalia’s death, Sowell begs his readers to sober up:

The vacancy created on the Supreme Court makes painfully clear the huge stakes involved when we choose a President of the United States, just one of whose many powers is the power to nominate justices of the Supreme Court. Scissors-32x32.pnghttps://ricochet.com/thomas-sowell-endorses-ted-cruz/

Ted Cruz Is Very Electable

By Steve Berman | February 16, 2016, 10:15am

If you read nothing but the New York Times, the Washington Post, and watched nothing but cable news, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Ted Cruz is a dangerous fringe reactionary, who could never be elected president.


I’ve previously written that Donald Trump must veer left to win the presidency. He must, and he will, when it suits him. Cruz, however, has no need to veer left. In the first place, he wouldn’t do it–it’s not in his nature.


But Cruz doesn’t need to veer left.


Let’s have a peek at election results. Cruz came in first in Iowa, and third in New Hampshire. Iowa is a very conservative state, with a large evangelical population. NH, not so much, it’s always been a populist, reactionary place (it’s always had an earthy-crunchy feel, but now it’s gaining an increasing liberal population). If Cruz were the dangerous fringe reactionary, we’d expect him to win in NH. But Trump won big. Scissors-32x32.png
