Ted Cruz is a presidential candidate to be reckoned with!

The Examiner ^ | July 2, 2015 | Sylvia Van Peebles, San Diego Politics 

Every once in a while there comes along a candidate who is head and shoulders above the rest. Such a person is Senator Ted Cruz. He is that rare candidate who stands his ground, does not intimidate, never loses his cool and is, above all, always a gentlemen. Everyone who is anyone in the liberal media has been having interviews with Cruz. Not because they are so enamored of the Senator, but more because they are on a mission-a mission to trip him up, catch him off-guard, back him into a wall. They haven't been successful yet. Cruz is fully aware of their tactics.
Thursday The Blaze reports that a young staffer told Cruz how “nice” a member of the media is. Cruz responded with a reminder about the intentions of most reporters. “I actually stopped him and I said, ‘You know what? No, she’s not [nice]. She wants to destroy you. Nothing would make her happier than to take your life and filet you on the front pages. And don’t think for a minute that because she smiles and is friendly to you, that it’s anything else,’” Cruz said, sharing the story on The Glenn Beck Program.
Even though he agreed 100 percent, Beck questioned Cruz about his statement asking if it was a bit cynical. Cruz responded that the mainstream media is full of partisans who have “picked a team,” and “when the sheep are walking among coyotes, it pays to be cynical.” He added, “You see Republicans when they’re interviewed by left-wing reporters, and they get afraid,” Cruz said. “They want them to like them. They are not going to like us! They hate us.”(continued)

Hillary Clinton: How much longer can she hide the truth?

Fox News ^ | 7-2-15 | Andrew Napolitano 

In the course of my work at Fox News, I am often asked by colleagues to review and explain documents and statutes. Recently, in conjunction with my colleagues Catherine Herridge, our chief intelligence correspondent, and Pamela Browne, our senior executive producer, I read the transcripts of an interview Browne did with a man named Marc Turi, and Herridge asked me to review emails to and from State Department and congressional officials during the years when Hillary Clinton was the secretary of state.
What I saw has persuaded me beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that Clinton provided material assistance to terrorists and lied to Congress in a venue where the law required her to be truthful. Here is the backstory.
Turi is a lawfully licensed American arms dealer. In 2011, he applied to the Departments of State and Treasury for approvals to sell arms to the government of Qatar. Qatar is a small Middle Eastern country whose government is so entwined with the U.S. government that it almost always will do what American government officials ask of it.
In its efforts to keep arms from countries and groups that might harm Americans and American interests, Congress has authorized the Departments of State and Treasury to be arms gatekeepers. They can declare a country or group to be a terrorist organization, in which case selling or facilitating the sale of arms to them is a felony. They also can license dealers to sell.
Turi sold hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of arms to the government of Qatar, which then, at the request of American government officials, were sold, bartered or given to rebel groups in Libya and Syria. Some of the groups that received the arms were on the U.S. terror list...

The real reason the unemployment rate ‘fell’ in June 2015

New York Post ^ | 07/03/2015 | John Crudelle 

You’ve probably heard this phrase: “There are lies, damned lies and there are statistics.”
Let’s look at the latest statistics from the Labor Department and you decide whether we are being told the truth, lied to or simply misled by faulty numbers.
On Thursday, Labor, in the first sentence of its June jobs report statement, said that “payroll employment increased by 223,000 and the unemployment rate declined to 5.3 percent.
Thanks, but I’d like to focus instead on the fifth paragraph and the very last paragraph. First, the unemployment rate.
It was down from 5.5 percent in May, so instinctively people would say “hooray” and move on.
But the real story is in the aforementioned paragraph five. There, Labor tells us the labor force participation rate declined by 0.3 percentage points, or by 432,000 people, to 62.6 percent in June.
That means just 62.6 percent of those eligible to work have a job or are looking for work. And that is a 37-year low.
And that is why the unemployment rate fell — not because folks are getting jobs.
The government’s 5.3 percent rate doesn’t take into account people who aren’t looking for jobs because they don’t think any exist. Discouraged workers, like the ones I just described, don’t count as being unemployed.

Do You Know When We Celebrate Our Independence From Mexico?

Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 7-3-2015 | MOTUS 

I was saving this for the Fourth of July, butt it occurred to me that it would be too depressing for such a glorious holiday. So I leave you to ponder its implications today, and save tomorrow for rolling out the flags.
And you can bet that at least half of the people interviewed here about America’s Declaration of Independence were on the honor roll at their school.
Remember: Sheeple are made not born. So if you must blame anyone for this sort of wanton ignorance, blame our public education system as well as its school of continuing education – MSM.
All I can say is ask not for whom the bell tolls…
