Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Ted Cruz’s announcement

It’s fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz will be the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field. In his two short years in the Senate, he has yielded to no one in championing the values of personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future. As the field expands, we will look forward to seeing how the other candidates advance the liberty movement and put forward conservative solutions to undoing the mess our ‘transformational’ president has made of our Republic.

Ted Cruz has a list that should make the White House think twice

Talk about putting pen to paper. Tea Party Patriots has argued for some time now that President Obama’s disregard for Constitutional limits on his executive power puts the future of this country at risk. It seems the violations never end. But this week, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz this week, released a detailed[1]  list of “lawless” actions perpetrated by the Obama Administration on things like Obamacare, national security and free speech. Cruz released the list in a report titled, “The Legal Limit Report No. 4,” which delves into the nitty-gritty details 76 different executive actions that define “lawlessness.” “Of all the troubling ...

“Morning Joe” co-host goes after Ted Cruz, Tea Partiers

“Morning Joe” is one of the smallest morning shows in America, but its influence in the Beltway is disproportionate to the number of viewers in real America. This is what makes Mika Brzezinski’s statements this morning on Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) patriotism – as well as those of Tea Partiers – totally expected, but no less unacceptable. The segment of the show focused around the “shutdown” and the effort to defund Obamacare: “It shows how much they hate him [Obama] and don’t love the country, and that’s what’s scary about this.” And later, after being challenged by Joe Scarborough: “Are you saying they do?” ...

The Targeting of Ted Cruz

Late Wednesday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) released a statement in support of the House’s Continuing Resolution that defunds Obamacare: “Today's announcement that the House will vote to defund Obamacare is terrific news,” said Sen. Cruz. “Just a few weeks ago, this was deemed impossible. We commend House leadership and House Republicans for listening to the people and for taking decisive action to stop Obamacare, the biggest job-killer in America. Harry Reid will no doubt try to strip the defund language from the continuing resolution, and right now he likely has the votes to do so. At that point, House Republicans must stand firm, hold their ...

Coburn vs. Cruz: GOP Turmoil on Delaying Obamacare

With the 2014 fiscal year starting in less than two months, Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) are leading the fight in what is almost certainly the last chance to prevent Obamacare’s implementation: prevention of funding in the Continuing Resolution Congress will negotiate in September. The Senate Conservatives Fund has the list of signatories to the Lee letter for delay of Obamacare, which includes stalwart conservatives like Senators Cruz and Lee, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), and Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK). However, one fiscal conservative’s name is conspicuously missing: Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), who has publicly opposed the current ...
