Second Amendment? Ted Cruz Smacks Down A Reporter – Hard

Hat/Tip to Mike Miller at Doug Ross @ Journal. On the 2nd Amendment Ted Cruz Mops The Floor With Reporter’s Attempt At A “Gotcha Question.” You’ve gotta love how he so Reaganesguely deconstructs, and thus takes the power away from the typical far left ‘gotcha’ question.   At a recent event, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz was asked the following question: “In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, a statistic surfaced putting support for background checks at 90%. Did you go against the want of the nation with your vote against Manchin-Toomey (a bill that would have required background […]

Is Rubio Eligible To Be POTUS?

  Hat/Tip to Javier Manjarres at Breitbart. Editor’s Note: We ran a story about Marco Rubio which was written by Ken McIntyre at The Daily Signal. From the feedback of the comments, it would seem that, once again there are those who, armed with Google have their own interpretation of what the term natural born citizen means. Here, reprinted in its entirety, is an article from April of 2013 by, one of the MOST Conservative websites on the planet. Conservative Hideout takes no sides on this issue, as we have ‘no dog in the fight’, so to speak. Our job […]

Both Ted Cruz And Marco Rubio Are Eligible To Be President Or Vice-President

Editor’s Note: We ran a story about Marco Rubio which was written by Ken McIntyre at The Daily Signal. From the feedback of the comments, it would seem that, once again there are those who, armed with Google have their own interpretation of what the term natural born citizen means. Here, reprinted in its entirety, is an article from September of 2013 by Diane Sori at the Tea Party Tribune, which is among the staunchest Conservative websites in the blogosphere. Conservative Hideout takes no sides on this issue, as we have ‘no dog in the fight’, so to speak. Our job is to present […]

Run Rubio, Run!: The Florida Senator Bets It All On Becoming POTUS

Hat/Tip to Ken McIntyre at The Daily Signal. Marco Rubio said that if he ran for President, that he wouldn’t seek reelection to the United States Senate. You have to admire that type of integrity. There’s a great piece at The Daily Signal, by Ken McIntyre. It’s a very thorough article, covering everything from Rubio’s family to his stance on foreign policy. Here it is, in its entirety: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Marco Rubio, little more than four years into his first term in the Senate, is back home in Miami today. The Republican is scheduled to announce for higher office again, this time […]

Ted Cruz Is Serious…And So Is His Fundraising Machine

Hat/Tip to Rebecca Berg at The Washington Examiner. Maybe Senator Cruz should give a hat/tip to Jeb Bush… In his first week as a presidential candidate, the Texas senator raked in more than $4 million for his campaign account, including $1.5 million from major donors, and he has already brought in hundreds of thousands more dollars since. A herd of super PACs supporting Cruz brought in another $31 million, Bloomberg reported Wednesday — an eye-popping sum that has stunned more than a few competing Republicans. Bush, a former Florida governor whose powerful family has deep roots in Texas, has factored […]

Ever Look At Ted Cruz’s Resume?

Hat/Tip to The Reaganite Republican. There’s an old saying about knowing you’re over the target when you start taking flak. Well Ted Cruz must be all over that target because he’s being attacked from the Left AND the Right. From that tired old meme about him not being a natural born citizen to the argument that we can’t elect another freshman Senator without any experience. Well, hopefully this article from The Reaganite Republican in 2013 will help quell the ‘lack of experience’ crowd a bit. Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 – May 2008, Cruz was the first Hispanic Solicitor […]

Ted Cruz Is A Natural (Born Citizen)

Hat/Tip to The Cato Institute and Mark Levin. All of a sudden, the Libs are bothered by eligibility, along with some on the Right who seem to take great pleasure in sticking a fork in the eye of the most truly Conservative candidate to come down the pike since Ronald Reagan. But even though the naysayers like to pretend that they know what they are talking about, it just isn’t true. What was it Reagan said about the Left? “The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” […]

Law Professor Says “It’s Just Not True” To Ted Cruz Birthers

Hat/Tip to The Blaze. Okay, so the “Ted Cruz isn’t a natural born citizen” crowd are a persistent lot. But here is more proof that they are wrong. It’s hard to believe but the birthers are back. This time they’re going after Senator Ted Cruz, who announced his candidacy for President of the United States Monday morning. Robbie George, a law professor at Princeton University, joined Glenn to dispel the theories before they could spread during an interview on TheBlaze TV. Glenn: Professor Robbie George is a law professor at Princeton University, knew Senator Cruz from his time as a […]

Eureka! Univision Discovers Cruz Has Latino Support

  Hat/Tip to Ken Oliver-Méndez at NewsBusters. Don’t let MSNBC know about this. Oh wait. They’d just edit it out… Lo and behold, there are Latinos who support Senator Ted Cruz’s candidacy for President of the United States. That was the discovery Univision made while covering the Texas Senator’s presidential campaign announcement at Liberty University. Reporting for Noticiero Univisión, correspondent Lourdes Meluzá noted that among others, Cruz aims to capture the support of Evangelical voters, including among the young. Meluzá encountered two such prospective voters of Latino origin, both of whom were enthusiastic at the prospect of a Cruz presidency. The first […]

Mark Levin Blasts Fox News For Attacking Ted Cruz: Do They Want Jeb Bush For President?

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Michael Van Der Galien at The PJ Tatler. The Great One, as usual, knocks this one out of the park! On his radio show yesterday, Mark Levin criticized his “friends from Fox News” for secretly supporting Jeb Bush and attacking real conservative candidates like Ted Cruz: As you all know I’m a huge fan of the Fox News channel. Particularly certain hosts. But I have to wonder: if Ronald Reagan was running in 1976 starting in ’75 against Gerald Ford, how most of the people at Fox would treat him. Because to […]

12 Reasons Ted Cruz Is A Strong GOP 2016 Candidate

Hat/Tip to Jim Meyers at Newsmax. Ted Cruz has established himself as a rare breed of politician – in that he does in Washington DC what he promises to do on the campaign trail. Love him or hate him, you have to give him kudos for standing on principle and not wavering or succumbing to political pressure. Here is an article from Newsmax about a Ted Cruz candidacy, reprinted in its entirety: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Texas Sen. Ted Cruz announced on Monday that he is running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, making him the first major candidate to officially toss […]

Yes, Ted Cruz Can Be Born in Canada and Still Become President of the U.S.

Hat/Tip to David A. Graham at The Atlantic. Since our last article we published garnered such a big response, I thought I’d put forth another article on Ted Cruz that also looks at his eligibility. Now before anyone gets the idea that we are endorsing Senator Cruz in a bid for the nomination for Republican Candidate for President of the United States, we here at CH2.0 will entertain any well written, thoroughly researched articles that purport his ineligibility. Please submit your articles, with well documented research to Don King, Managing Editor of Conservative Hideout 2.0 at [email protected] With that being […]

GOP Candidates: When Have You Stood And Fought? 15 Questions Every Candidate Should Have To Answer

  That’s the question every voter should ask, “when have you stood and fought?” to quote Senator Ted Cruz. It means a candidate doing more than voting for legislation that doesn’t have a chance of passing (although that is important too). We need more. We need a candidate who already has a background showing the passion and moral backbone to support the Constitution–long before the campaign trail began. Are you supporting our few Defending Fathers in Congress? See 15 questions below, and consider asking them every time you have the opportunity as the campaign trail fills up, or come up […]

Trey Gowdy To Hillary Clinton: Turn Over The Server, Or Else….

  Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. I’m wondering if Hillz is consulting with Lois Lerner about how to “hide” her “missing” emails… I’m further guessing that even though the Clintons seem to be perpetually bullet-proof, Hillary has GOT to be sweating Trey Gowdy’s skills as a prosecutor right about now. The chairman of the congressional committee probing the Benghazi terror attacks has formally asked that Hillary Clinton turn over her personal server — warning that the House could take steps to pressure her if she refuses. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sent a letter, released Friday, to Clinton’s attorney requesting that […]

Mark Levin To The GOP: Netanyahu’s Victory Shows You Have To ‘Fight For What’s Right’

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Justin Koski at Western Journalism. As usual, Mark Levin hits the nail on the head. Talk radio host Mark Levin argued on Tuesday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s victory in the Israeli re-election sends a message to the Republican party and American conservatives “This is a very, very important message for the Republican Party and conservatives in this country as well. Sometimes, folks, you just have to stand on principle and fight for what’s right and stop playing games, and stop trying to be an accommodationist,” Levin said. “And even in our […]

Trey Gowdy: Hillary’s Server Or Hillary’s Testimony

  Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Trey Gowdy is a smart, cagey prosecutor and he won’t make a move until he has ALL his ducks in a row. The latest two ducks he’s lining up are either Hillary’s Email Server or Hillary, herself in the hot seat. If former secretary of State Hillary Clinton refuses to turn over her server to an independent party, the House Select Committee on Benghazi will ask her to testify about it, committee chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News. Appearing Monday on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” Gowdy said he plans to give Clinton the opportunity […]

Video: Dr. Ben Carson Says Something So Shocking, His Conservative Host Makes Him Repeat It

Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. One of the things that makes Dr. Ben Carson a darling of the Tea Party is that he says it like it is, sometimes even to his detriment. But then again that is such a breath of fresh air in a landscape dominated by poll testing soundbites and political correctness. Dr. Carson was recently on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum” hosted by J. D. Salinger and he had a pretty strong comment about President Obama’s activities concerning his Amnesty via Executive Fiat. Hayworth opened by asking Carson about any advice he had for Republicans about the […]

BREAKING: Trey Gowdy Reveals His Plan To Get Hillary

  Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. Tenacious as a bulldog and cagey as a lion, Trey Gowdy has his sights set on Hillary Clinton over her role in the Benghazi Cover Up and you can rest assured that he won’t stop until he uncovers the truth. With media outlets and analysts across the country circling Hillary Clinton over her latest email scandal as if she were a wounded seal in a pit full of sharks, the biggest shark of them all, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, is ready to eat. Gowdy, who chairs the House Special Committee on Benghazi that was appointed to determine exactly […]
