Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz Wins The 2014 Value Voters Summit Presidential Straw Poll … Mocked MSM & PC Police with Undocumented White House Visitor Joke
America, if you really want to elect a true Conservative to turn the country around, you best get serious about Ted Cruz.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed them at the 2014 Values Voters Summit and won the straw poll for the second year in a row. Ted Cruz won with 25%, former Johns Hopkins University neurosurgeon and political newbie Ben Carson came in second with 20%, while former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee came in third, with 12%. Carson also came in first in the polling for vice president, winning 22% of the votes. Just a note to those at Value Voter Summit, Huckabee is not a conservative.
But Ted Cruz was the star of the show and had the crowd laughing with joke about the recent White House fence jumper, nailing the MSM, political correctness and illegal immigration all in one.
“We should hold the media to account. Because I will say in their reporting on this person who broke into the White House, they really have not used the politically correct term and we should insist that ABC, NBC, CBS, they refer to the visitor according to the term that is politically correct, an undocumented White House visitor.
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz won the Value Voters Summit presidential straw poll on Saturday.
The crowd burst onto applause on Saturday, as Family Research Council President Tony Perkins announced that Cruz won 25 percent of votes at the annual Washington conference.
The victory is a big victory to the Republican firebrand and Tea Party icon, coming just a day after he drew standing ovations with a religious and emotional speech that blasted ObamaCare, congressional Democrats and called for Republicans to take over the White House in 2016.
Cruz also won the straw poll in 2013.
Coming in second was neurosurgeon Ben Carson, a political novice who has a large following in conservative circles but said earlier this week that there is a “strong” likelihood that he would run for president. He won 20 percent of the votes.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) came in third, with 12 percent of the vote.
As a signal of Carson’s popularity at the summit, the former Johns Hopkins University neurosurgeon came in first in the polling for vice president, winning 22 percent of the votes.
Oh the Irony: 42 Year Old Omar J. Gonzalez Arrested by Secret Service Inside White House … Scaled the White House Fence (VIDEO)
OK, WHO SEES THE IRONY IN AN INDIVIDUAL WITH A HISPANIC LAST NAME SCALING A FENCE AND BEING ARRESTED?
42 year old Omar J. Gonzalez of Copperas Cove, Texas was arrested Friday night after he climbed over the White House fence and made it through the North Portico doors of the White House. The White House staff members were evacuated; however, the Obama family were not at home. President Obama and his daughters had left via helicopter for the presidential retreat at Camp David, MD, just minutes before the incident. Following Gonzalez’s apprehension, he was taken to George Washington Medical Center for a medical evaluation.
Just curious, why was he arrested, why was this considered a crime? Isn’t this just a microcosm of our Southern border and the fence jumping that occurs every day? For Barack Obama and his administration, the illegals coming into the United States by scaling the Mexico-US border fence are not committing any crime. Barack Obama does not believe in border security, so why does he believe in security for the White House? Oh that’s right, that is different. For illegals who “illegally” scale a fence and cross into America get amnesty, but scale the White House fence and you get arrested.
A Texas man who scaled the White House fence made it through the North Portico doors on Friday night before being apprehended, the Secret Service said.
The intruder, Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, was arrested just inside the doors and taken to George Washington University Hospital after complaining of chest pains, said Ed Donovan, a Secret Service spokesman.
None of the Obamas were home when the security breach occurred about 7:20 p.m., but White House staff members were evacuated as a precaution, officials said. President Obama and his daughters had left for the presidential retreat at Camp David, Md., just minutes before the incident.
Mr. Gonzalez, of Copperas Cove, Tex., was not armed and was not carrying a bag or a backpack when officials spotted him jumping the fence on the Pennsylvania Avenue side, Mr. Donovan said. He ignored several calls for him to stop as officers gave chase.
No shots were fired and the White House guard dogs were not called out to stop him.

Of course then their is the other metaphor that this incident presents, if Obama can’t protect the White House from a 42 year old man, how is he going to protect America against terrorism and ISIS?
BARACK OBAMA, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!
According to the most recent Gallup poll, three day rolling average, Barack Obama has tied his all-time low for job approval at 38%. At some point though, Obama’s job approval numbers have to sink even lower as we look around and nothing, I mean nothing is positive for the United states or Americans, both in domestic and foreign policy, in the disastrous Obama presidency. As Obama’s poll numbers continue to shrink, the MSM-Democrat state run media complex refuses to report the news.
- U.S. Economy added a pathetic 142,000 jobs in August, 2014
- The July payroll number was revised up from plus 209,000 jobs to plus 212,000 but June’s count was revised down from 298,000 jobs added to 267,000. Total employment gains those months were therefore 28,000 lower than what BLS originally reported.
- Black unemployment at 11.4%
- Labor Force; Participation Rate Matches 36-Year Low, 92,269,000 not in work force.
- IRS Scandal Continues … Benghazi-gate scandal continues.
- ISIS on the move creating a caliphate, murdering innocents and beheading two Americans with a muddled, dithering and weak response from Obama.
- Obama, a disastrous conclusion that ISIS was the Jayvee, turns out it was Obama who is the rank amateur.
- Putin on the move … China on the move … ISIS on the move … Iran’s nuclear capability on the move Thanks to a weak Ditherer in Chief and the world no longer fears the US because of Obama.
- Obamacare is to a costly joke.
- Afghanistan and Iraq all but lost after the loss of so many brave American military souls.
- Amnesty for illegals.
The below average polling for Obama’s job approval is at 40.25% Approve and 54.25% Disapprove.
Reuters/Ipsos – 8/30 – 9/3: 38% Approve – 56% Disapprove (-18)
Gallup – 9/2 – 9/5 : 38% Approve – 54% Disapprove (-16)
The Economist/YouGov – 8/30 – 9/1: 41% Approve - 56% Disapprove (-15)
GWU/Battleground – 8/23 – 8/28: 44% Approve - 51 Disapprove (-7)

The Polling Company … 63% of Hispanics & 57% of Blacks Say the Government is not Doing Enough to Enforce U.S. Immigration Laws
HERE’S A POLL THE MSM, DEMOCRATS AND PRO-AMNESTY REPUBLICANS WILL NEVER SHOW YOU …
CNS News reports the following TPC/WC poll that shows that an overwhelming majority, including Hispanics and Blacks, say that the government is not doing enough to enforce current US immigration policy. But the MSM, Democrats and pro-amnesty Republicans would have you believe that “amnesty” is the only way to deal with illegals already in the country. The poll also went on to say that 71% of Blacks and 63% of Hispanics believe the government “has a responsibility” to protect job-hungry Americans “from competition with illegal immigrants.” It would appear that legal Hispanics and blacks in America both agree that American jobs should be given to legal Americans. Hmm, think Hispanics and blacks realize that their already poor unemployment numbers and salaries are drastically affected by illegals?
Fully 63% of Hispanics and 57% of Blacks say the government is not doing enough to enforce U.S. immigration laws, according to the survey by The Polling Company, Inc. Likewise, 78% of Whites and 74% of all respondents want tighter border security.
What’s more, 71% of Blacks and 63% of Hispanics believe the government “has a responsibility” to protect job-hungry Americans “from competition with illegal immigrants.” About three-quarters of Whites (77%) and all respondents (74%) agree that the government has a duty to protect Americans from job competition by illegal aliens.
More than three times as many Hispanics and Blacks agree as disagree that “Americans who need work ought to have the opportunity to do the jobs that are currently done by illegal aliens”:
- Hispanics: 73% Agree, 21% Disagree
- Blacks: 70% Agree, 22% Disagree
- Whites: 83% Agree, 12% Disagree
- Total: 81% Agree, 14% Disagree
The youth labor force participation rate was highest for whites, at 63.2 percent in
July 2014. By contrast, the rate was 52.9 percent for blacks, 45.8 percent for Asians,
and 56.2 percent for Hispanics. For all four groups, labor force participation rates
were little different from last July.
The employment-population ratios for young men (53.6 percent) and whites (55.4 percent)
were higher in July 2014 than a year earlier. The ratios for young women (50.1 percent),
blacks (39.8 percent), Asians (40.8 percent), and Hispanics (47.0 percent) showed little
change from last July.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for adult women increased to 5.7 percent and the rate for blacks edged up to 11.4 percent in July, following declines for both groups in the prior
month. The rates for adult men (5.7 percent), teenagers (20.2 percent), whites (5.3 percent), and Hispanics (7.8 percent) showed little or no change in July. The jobless rate for Asians was 4.5 percent(not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier.
Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera Says Federal Government Releasing Murderers Into U.S. & Morale is at an All-Time Low
What else should we expect from Barack Obama, a Community agitator?
Is it any surprise that US Border agent’s morale is at an all-time low when agents are not allowed to do the job that they were hired to do and they see on a daily basis that they have to let admitted gang members and murderers into the United States per the federal government? What has become of this country? Honestly, what is the point of having immigration laws, border agents and a border if we are not going to uphold them? This is what happens when you let the inmates run the asylum.
A Border Patrol agent claims that the federal government is allowing murderers from Central America to be released into the U.S.
Speaking to Fox News on Wednesday, agent Chris Cabrera stated that these teenage gang members crossing the border are being released to family members in the U.S.
“If they have family in the United States, they’ll release them to the family, even if they’re admitted gang members,” Cabrera explained to Fox News. “We’ve had a couple that had admitted to murders in their home country. They were 17 years old, 16 years old, and the United States government thought it fit to release them to their parents here in the United States.
“Even if he’s a confirmed gang member, a confirmed criminal even by self-admission, we for some reason don’t send them back to their home country, we release them into our country.”
NBC/WSJ Poll: Barack Obama Approval Rating Hits All-Time Low … Also, 71% Say Country Headed in Wrong Direction
AMERICANS ARE FINALLY FED UP WITH BARACK OBAMA’S DISASTROUS PRESIDENCY … HOW’S THE “HOPEY-CHANGEY” STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YA?
In the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, Barack Obama’s approval rating has hit an all-time low as only 40% approve while an overwhelming 54% disapprove. It appears the American people have finally grown weary of Obama’s disastrous presidency and 6 years into “Hope and Change,” Barack Obama has no one else left to blame but himself. He has had his opportunity to make positive change, and has only made things worse. An amazing 71% say that the country is headed in the wrong direction, while only 21% say we are on the right track. This number can be easily explained when individuals looks at the domestic and foreign policy issues and see nothing positive. The recession continues as the real unemployment rate is closer to 18%, the US debt continues to spiral out of control, median incomes are down, the US-Mexican border crisis, scandals abound and the the Middle East on the brink, failures in Iraq and Afghanistan, rise of terrorism and Obama siding with, not our allies. Even liberal Democrats have come to the reality that he is nothing but a liar.
Other poor poll results for Barack Obama handling domestic and foreign policy issues:
- The economy: 53% disapprove – 42% approve
- Foreign policy: 60% disapprove – 36% approve
Six in 10 Americans are dissatisfied with the state of the U.S. economy, more than 70 percent believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, and nearly 80 percent are down on the country’s political system, according to the latest NBC News / Wall Street Journal poll.
The frustration carries over to the nation’s political leaders, with President Barack Obama’s overall approval rating hitting a new low at 40 percent, and a mere 14 percent of the public giving Congress a thumbs up.
“We’re in the summer of our discontent,” said Democratic pollster Peter Hart, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff. “Americans are cranky, unhappy… It is with everything going on the world.”
What’s more, a combined 71 percent say the recession personally impacted them “a lot” or “just some,” and 64 percent say it’s still having an effect on them.
Then there are these numbers in the poll:
- 40 percent say someone in their household lost a job in the past five years;
- 27 percent say they have more than $5,000 in student-loan debt for either themselves or their children;
- 20 percent have more than $2,000 in credit card debt they are unable to pay off month to month;
- 17 percent say they have a parent or a child over 21 years old living with them for financial or health reasons.
Check out the average job approval polling at RCP, if not for that bias Republican Rasmussen poll, Obama’s average approval would be at 40%.
US Border Patrol Agent’s Sad But All to Real Response to Truck Driver Travis Pope’s Question on Whether it Matters if He is a US Citizen … “Not Any More, Unfortunately.”
The sad and pathetic reality of US border security under Barack Obama …
Travis Pope, a truck driver who was stopped at an an internal border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas, asked a simple question and sadly got back an answer from the border patrol that pretty much says it all for Barack Obama’s open borders-”illegal” immigration policy. The trucker recorded his conversation with border patrol agent while wearing his Icam glasses. The result was a Youtube viral video. When the trucker was asked whether he was a US citizen, his response was a question back to the border agent, “Yeah, but does it really matter?” The border agent, who did not know he was being recorded said,”Not any more, unfortunately.”
Agent: How are you doing? U.S. Border Patrol. How many people are on board?
Agent: Are you a citizen?
Driver: Yeah, but does it really matter?
Agent: Not any more, unfortunately. Thank you.
VIDEO Hat Tip – MrRocksolid1974
Pope said he doesn’t think the agents at this checkpoints are a waste of time, “because we need border security,” but a “waste of money.” Pope added that he thinks the agent he recently encountered is “an American hero” who is “frustrated that he can’t do his job.”
As for his filming of agents without their knowledge, Pope fired back his own response.
“I really don’t think about that because they got everybody on cameras anyway. They’re government. We have the NSA wiretapping us and watching us … and they’re going to get upset because a citizens do same thing to them? If it’s right for the government, it’s right for me to do it, ain’t it?”
Unhinged Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Chases Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) Across House Chamber After He Called Her Out … “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then.”
Nance Pelosi takes crossing the aisle to the extreme …
Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) certainly did hit a nerve to say the least when he addressed the House regarding the debate on the border funding bill Friday night. Marino called out former Speaker of the House Nanncy Pelosi why when Democrats had control of the House, Senate and White House they did nothing about the border issue, but now with to make it a political issue. Needless to say, San Fran Nan then did something she never does, she came across the aisle. However, it was to confront Marino. After Pelosi said something to Marino, he responded, “It’s true, madam leader, I did the research on it,” Marino said. “You might want to try it. You might want to try it, madam leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.” File this one under, The truth hurts, don’t it.
“You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed. They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
The House then voted to approve the $694 million border supplemental, 223-189.
In an unusual breach of decorum, even for the divided Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi chased Rep. Tom Marino across the House floor, taking offense at comments by the Pennsylvania Republican during debate on the border funding bill Friday night.
“We don’t have law and order,” Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. “My colleagues on the other side don’t want to do anything about it.”
“You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed,” he continued. “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
Off-mic, Pelosi then approached Marino, crossing the aisle in view of cameras, and apparently challenged Marino’s assertion that Democrats did not do anything about the issue when they had majority control.
“Yes it is true,” Marino replied directly to Pelosi, who was House speaker in those years. “I did the research on it. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”
Marino then urged lawmakers to support the border supplemental “because apparently I hit the right nerve.”
Powerline opines, “Before this morning, I regret to say, I was unfamiliar with Tom Marino. Today Marino is my hero.” I have to second that as well!
According to Pelosi spokeswoman Evangeline George, “Leader Pelosi just wanted to remind the Congressman that House Democrats had the courage to pass the DREAM Act – and have the courage to stand up for what the American people want: bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform.”
George added that “Pelosi accepted the Congressman’s apology.”
UPDATE II: Marino’s chief of staff, Bill Tighe, stressed that Marino did not apologize to Pelosi, and will not apologize.
It would appear that Rep. Marino did not apologize to Pelosi and San Fran Nan had more to say than just the “Dream Act”. Marino took to twitter and tweeted that Nancy Pelosi called me an “insignificant person”.
“[Rep. Marino] did not apologize to Leader Pelosi and does not intend to do so as he has nothing to apologize for. She was entirely out of line in approaching him while he was recognized and delivering remarks on the Floor,” Tighe wrote in an email. “Her staff’s comment in your story about her accepting his apology in simply not true.”
Later, Marino took to Twitter to explain his side of the story.

Economist/YouGov Poll: 77% of Americans Say Illegal Southern Border Kids Need to be Sent Back Home … 64% of Hispanics Want Children Deported
RUT-ROH, looks like Barack Obama, Democrats and the MSM have misread the tea leaves badly…
A funny thing has happened on the way to Barack Obama and Democrats trying use self-created humanitarian crisis of illegals pouring across our Southern border in mass and passing it off as an only unaccompanied minor issue … an unanticipated American backlash, including Hispanic-Americans that says, SEND THEM HOME!!! According to a recent Economist/YouGov poll, 77% of Americans say that the children who have massed on our Southern border in an attempt to get into the USA illegally need to be sent back home to where they came from. Obama and Democrats with the aid of the MSM tried to use “the opportunity” to their advantage to pass amnesty. However, according to the poll 64% of Hispanics want the children to be deported as well. Looks like some one [Democrats] has misread the signs badly.
Breitbart asks, where has the wall to wall media coverage gone? Even the MSM understands that it is hard to exploit “an opportunity” when the American people are so strongly against their bias position.
Rather than convince the American people that passing a mass amnesty is what’s needed, the burst of border coverage earlier this month convinced 77% of the American people that the kids need to be sent back home. A full 42% want the kids sent back immediately regardless of what’s happening in their home countries. Add to that another 35% who want them sent back unless their home country is deemed unsafe.
Only 11% want what Obama, Democrats, and the media want — which is amnesty for everyone.
The numbers are not all that different among Hispanics. Only 22% want to give the children amnesty. A full 64% want the children deported. Of that 64%, 28% want them deported immediately; 36% want them deported unless their home country is deemed unsafe.
That puts Hispanics almost perfectly in line with the rest of country.
UNREAL, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?
When is “illegal” not illegal … when it pertains to undocumented Democrat voters. Illegal immigrants demonstrated outside the White House on Monday protesting US immigration policy with no fear of arrest or deportation. Unbelievable. Individuals in the United States illegally and breaking the laws of the very country they are in, protesting against immigration policy. What has happened to the country I grew up in that used to be about the rule of law? So we have individuals that have broke the law and they have no fear of arrest. How insane have we become, under a policy that’s been in effect for several years, ICE focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and in some cases, those caught in the act of crossing the border.
Illegal immigrant demonstrators were protesting outside the White House on Monday – but don’t expect America’s immigration officers to intervene.
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official indicated that even if the protesters end up getting arrested by D.C. police, they’d have to be serious criminals for ICE to get involved.
“Unless the individuals meet ICE’s enforcement priorities, it’s unlikely that the agency would get involved in the case,” the official told FoxNews.com.
Under a policy that’s been in effect for several years, ICE focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and – in some cases — those caught in the act of crossing the border. The agency prioritizes deportation for felons, repeat offenders, gang members and others with a serious criminal record. But the agency largely gives a pass to other undocumented residents.
This is why illegal immigrant activists can protest outside the White House without worrying too much about ICE.
Up next, bank robbers will be demonstrating outside the White House protesting US fiscal policy with no fear of arrest.
