5 Crazy Things Ted Cruz Said He Will Do During His First Day As President

AUTHOR: MARCUS AURELIUS DECEMBER 29, 2015 12:36 AM From Addicting Info
Republican candidate Ted Cruz has laid out five things he will do for his first day in office and his plans border on insanity. Let’s take a look at his “plans.” (1) He wants to rip up the deal with Iran and put the country on path to yet another disastrous war in the Middle East.Cruz said:
“We’ve seen six and a half years of President Obama leading from behind. Weakness is provocative, and this Iranian nuclear deal is nothing short of catastrophic. This deal, on its face, will send over $100 billion to the Ayatollah Khamenei, making the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism…You’d better believe it. If I am elected president, on the very first day in office, I will rip to shreds this catastrophic Iranian nuclear deal.” This fear mongering is typical of Republicans. The reality though is that because of the…

JORDAN DAVIS: SHOT AND KILLED FOR MOUTHING OFF TO A WHITE MAN

You might have seen this documentary, it was awarded a Special Jury at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, but if you haven't please do.   It's an important piece reflecting so much on America's racial divide, our justice system and the bias against young Black men that pervades our society.   Note that the defense attorney for Michael Dunn builds his case essentially around speculation and "made up shit," like the rifle barrel Dunn allegedly saw or that the four young Black men might have thrown the imaginary gun in the parking lot even though nothing was ever found.   Now, I don't fault him for that since there was very little - read: none - of factual information or evidence that could have been used in Dunn's defense. As I listened to the defense present its "evidence" I couldn't help thinking that had the races of Jordan Davis and Michael Dunn been reversed, there is no way that …

If California Is Such A Hostile Business Climate, Why Is It Kicking Everyone Else's Ass (Like Texas)

You hear conservatives tell it, the key to a job-creating positive business environment is … drum roll … low taxes! So the conservative Tax Foundation will rank the best and worst business climate states:

2016 business tax climate index California and New York are ranked way low (48 and 49, respectively), with New Jersey coming in last at 50. And on the “positive” side, you have Wyoming leading the pack, with Texas at #10.  CNBC has its ownrankings, with Texas at #2, and California down at #27 and New York at #36. (These rankings, for example, favor right-to-work anti-union states.) And how aboutcrazy-ass ALEC?
Yup, poor ol’ California and New York and pretty much every Blue State totally sucking. And Chief Executive Magazine really gets itshateon for California: 

California is the Worst State for Business for the Tenth Year in a Row
But all those rankings really m…

Conservative Gets Convicted, Dodges Prison Time, And Is Convinced The Liberals Are Behind It All

[NOTE: The clip above is Dinesh's "defense" against his criminal activity and his persecution by the Obama Administration in an interview with Alex Jones recorded in June of 2014 before his conviction.)

Recently convicted criminal and diehard conservative conspiracy theorist Dinesh D'Souza has apparently written a book on his experience of being convicted for funneling $20,000 in illegal campaign contributions to a friend who was running for office. I say "apparently" because despite D'Souza's personal belief that the liberal powers-that-be are so intimidated by his various maudlin theories that we monitor him at every turn, I have not personally heard anyone so much as mention D'Fellow for many months. But the National Review, which a few moderate wags continue to insist was once a respectable publication with authors wh…
