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 […]

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 IS Eligible To Serve As President

Hat/Tip to Greg Conterio at Western Free Press. As 2016, and the end of the Obama era fades into the dustbin of history, along with all the other failed regimes of the world, we Americans look towards the peaceful transfer of power, and the next chapter in our nation’s story. In doing so, we begin to evaluate those among us who may seek to hold the highest office in our land. There are many potential contenders out there, on both sides of the aisle, so to speak. We have of course Hillary on the Democratic side, along with Elizabeth Warren, […]

Five Reactions To The Announcement That Ted Cruz Will Campaign For The Republican Presidential Nomination

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Whether you’re a Ted Cruz fan or not, this is an excellent piece from over at Doug Ross Journal. Honestly, I’m sick and tired of the establishment (both the Democrat-Media Complex and the old, bloated, sputtering GOP crony capitalists) telling us who our candidates should be. I support Ted Cruz for President. Steve Deace: Traditionally if you want to win the GOP nomination you have to be one of the three tickets punched out of Iowa, and there is no doubt Ted Cruz is a serious threat to be one of those three. He […]

Ted Cruz To Announce Presidential Bid Monday

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Looks like Ted Cruz is going to make it official. If so, he’ll be the first one to officially throw his hat into the ring. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz plans to announce Monday that he will run for president, becoming the first high-profile Republican to enter the 2016 contest.  Cruz has hinted openly for months about his intentions to seek the GOP nomination, and his plan to jump into the race formally was confirmed by a strategist for the first-term Republican senator, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity so as not to preclude […]

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 […]

Trump To Celebrity Apprentice: “You’re Fired!”

  Hat/Tip to Newsmax. It’s all but official, we’re going to have a real estate mogul, billionaire, television star running for President in 2016. Donald Trump announced Wednesday that he will form a presidential exploratory committee in anticipation of joining the race for the 2016 Republican nomination. “I am the only one who can make America truly great again,” the Republican businessman and reality television star declared in a statement announcing the move. While a step short of a formal campaign launch, the formation of an exploratory allows him to begin raising money and hire staff as he weighs a […]

Obama Fears Hillary Presidency: Launches SIX Private Investigations To Stop Her

  Hat/Tip to Greg Richter and Todd Beamon at Newsmax. Looks like the bad blood between the Obama camp and the Clintons is getting worse. Now author Ed Klein is reporting that Barack Obama fears a Hillary presidency because she wouldn’t be far left enough for him. He thinks she would work with the GOP to dismantle everything he’s put in place to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” Holy crap! What a narcissist. Evidently he doesn’t understand the way that it works here in this country he hates so much. New presidents come in all the time and […]

Trump Hires Campaign Manager, Delays TV Gig: Says He’s Serious About Running

Hat/Tip to Robert Costa at The Washington Post. It is starting to look a lot like Christmas….er, I mean campaign season. And it’s also starting to look a lot like The Donald is going to be throwing his hat into the ring this time. This time, Donald J. Trump says, he really means it. The real-estate billionaire-turned reality TV star said in an interview that he is “more serious” now, than ever about running for President in 2016. In recent days, Trump said, he has hired staffers in key primary states, retained an election attorney and delayed signing on for […]

Scott Walker Crushing Other GOP Contenders In DRUDGE Primary Poll…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. He’s got a whopping 46% of the vote! It’s not even close. You can check real time results (and vote) here. Via Breitbart: With all the caveats about this being a non-scientific online poll, it has to mean something that Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker is murdering every other GOP contender by massive margins among those Drudge readers motivated enough to vote. Although voting continues, as of this writing nearly 70,000 total votes have been cast. Walker captured a whopping 45% of them, 31,211 votes. Texas Senator Ted Cruz is in second place with 15%, 10,054 votes. […]

Breaking News: Romney Makes Decision On 2016 Run For POTUS

Hat/Tip to Foxnews. He’ finally made the announcement! Mitt Romney announced Friday he will not run for president in 2016, after briefly flirting with a third White House run — a decision that only slightly narrows the crowded field of potential Republican candidates.  “After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it’s best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney told donors on a conference call Friday morning.  The announcement comes after the 2012 GOP nominee, who repeatedly denied interest in another campaign, surprised donors earlier this month […]

Trump Blasts Romney, Jeb Bush; ‘Seriously Thinking’ About Presidential Run

  Hat/Tip to Rick Klein at ABCNews. We’ve already reported here at CH2.0 that Donald Trump was blunt when speaking about a possible Romney run of President in 2016. “I supported Mitt Romney and he didn’t bring outthe people,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “He choked in the end … frankly, he just choked, choked like a dog, and we cannot allow that to happen again.” Well, he’s at it again. Donald Trump was a speaker at the Iowa Freedom Summit hosted by Iowa Rep. Steve King. When it came to how he felt about a Romney or […]

Walker Wows Crowd In Iowa

  Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. Few politicians have accomplished what Governor Scott Walker has done. First, he’s elected as a reformer, then when he does what he promised to do, the Unions and far left try to oust him with a recall election. Then he wins his recall election with a BIGGER percentage of the vote than he got in the first election. And finally, he’s won re-election. Scott Walker would make a fine President and he definitely has the bona fides to get the job done and get the United States back on track. DES MOINES, Iowa — […]

Sarah Palin: ‘Of Course’ I’m Interested In The 2016 Election

Hat/Tip to Cathy Burke at Newsmax. It’s unofficially official that she’s probably considering the possibility of running for the office of President of the United States in 2016. In politics, that means she’s running, but still one never knows, and the one thing for certain with Sarah Palin is that she never follows political orthodoxy. That’s a huge part of her appeal and if she does run, it will probably be the quality that wins her the election. Republican 2008 vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin declares that “of course” she’s interested in the 2016 presidential election. “Yeah, I mean, of course, […]

Ted Cruz: Putting Together His White House Team

Hat/Tip to David M. Drucker at The Washington Examiner. The field is shaping up early this year. Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Marco Rubio and heck, even Donald Trump have all been making the noises expected when one begins to run for the United States Presidency. Team Ted Cruz is taking shape, and the Senate first-termer’s presidential campaign could start before this spring. The Republican senator from Texas tentatively plans to fill senior campaign positions with the triumvirate he signed last summer to expand his political operation. At the top is Jeff Roe, whose organizational title is undefined but who […]

Trump On The Attack: Romney ‘Choked Like a Dog’ in 2012 Campaign

  Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Never one to back away from controversy or let the media set the tone in whatever endeavors he participates in, Donald Trump is at it again. This time it’s about the next Presidential election and he minces no words. Mitt Romney “choked like a dog” in the 2012 election, Donald Trump said Monday, adding that neither Romney nor most of the slate of potential GOP nominees will be able to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. “I supported Mitt Romney and he didn’t bring out the people,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. […]

Oh Geez! It’s Started Already: 1st GOP Primary Presidential Debate Is In August – 2015

Hat/Tip to Daniel Doherty at It looks like we’re going to have 57 states GOP debates leading up to the 2016 general election. *sigh* We’ve got NINE of these stupid debates lined up where we get to watch liberal “moderators” try and tear apart our candidates while they paint them with their liberal broad brushes of hypocrisy and disdain in an effort to discredit the ones who have the real answers our country needs. Mark your calendars: The Republican National Committee has just blasted out the 2016 presidential primary debate schedule. The first debate will be hosted by Fox News […]

Sources: Yep, Mitt Romney is Probably Going to Run Again

  Hat/Tip to Guy Benson at Well, it’s all but official that dear old Mitt is throwing his hat into the ring for a third time, as he seeks the Presidency in the upcoming 2016 election. Details have been bleeding into the press for days now, and the emerging picture strongly suggests that the GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee is angling to take a third crack at a White House run after all. Mitt Watch: 2016 struck me as a silly exercise as recently as a few months ago, when the former Massachusetts governor was still adamantly denying that he harbored any […]
