This week has been quite a bit quieter compared to last week when the Benghazi, IRS and AP scandals started to gain some serious traction. While details about the scandal aren’t coming out as fast and furious as they were a week ago, there still have been some substantial developments on the DOJ spying on FOX News reporter James Rosen. Did Attorney General Eric Holder lie under oath about not being involved with okaying his department to warrant a search against the reporter? ABC News sums up the details here.
My posts this week were pretty much all over the place but the one I enjoyed writing most was where I gave my opinion on Senator Ted Cruz stating that he doesn’t ‘trust Republicans’ nor does he trust the Democrats. He is clearly distancing himself from the corrupt establishment in Washington and I love it. Cruz has stated that he will be running for another term in the Senate come 2016, but what about a Presidential run? CNN has details on his possible run here.
Another story that really grabbed my attention has started to break across news outlets lately and it has do to with a strip search that was conducted on a 10th grade class in Canada. Yes, you read that right, a school conducted a strip search on a 10th grade class after a phone went missing. You can read about that here.
I am really hoping for some bombshell information to come out of the scandals that will put the final nail in the coffin of Obama’s Presidency and hopefully that happens soon, this coming week would be perfect.
Now this is just absolutely ridiculous! If this were to ever happen here in the United States then we would have a serious issue on our hands. Schools have no right whatsoever to order any kind of a strip search under any circumstance!
The administration at the school will be conducting an internal investigation; sounds more like a cover up to me so the school board can keep the teachers safe from losing their job. And supposedly the principal of the school did not know that a strip search was conducted!? You have got to be kidding me. How in the hell did the principal not know that a strip search was conducted on 28 students?
This whole deal stinks almost as bad the Benghazi scandal!
What in the hell is this world coming to? Anyone involved in this strip search should be fired immediately and the students should sue the school board for not taking appropriate action.
‘Conducting an investigation’ my ass.

” A school board in Canada has launched an investigation after school staff strip-searched 28 tenth grade students after a cell phone went missing during a final exam.
The students at Cap-Jeunesse high school north of Montreal were told to place their phones on the teacher’s desk to prevent cheating during a math test. When one phone went missing, teachers ordered the strip search.
“They put us in a small room,” one student told QMI. “[They said] ‘take off your bra, then raise your arms.’ They even tapped us on the back,” she said.”
The left is possibly the most incredibly selfish and misinformed group of individuals that I have ever encountered. During the 2012 elections, I had multiple discussions with some Liberal peers about their reasons for voting for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney. Now while some of them were honest and said ‘I’m not going to be voting because they both suck’ or ‘I really don’t pay attention so I won’t be voting’ (I believe that not voting is voting) I also ran into some individuals that said their reasoning for voting for Barack Obama was because he is for ‘gay marriage’ and has ‘got this country out of a deep economic hole’.
First off, yes the President has said that in a way he is for marriage equality but he as President will never make it legal and will never make a push for it. I believe that Obama only said he was for gay marriage so he could appeal to the stupid and misinformed because the stupid and misinformed will say ‘Oh! Obama is for gay marriage! That is awesome! I am totally voting for him regardless of the fact that we’re in deep debt and still have bad unemployment numbers!’.
Obama used social issues as a front to hide the fact that his economy still sucked and that his incredibly wasteful stimulus package of 2009 did absolutely nothing to help this economy.
I got into multiple debates about the 2012 election with some friends and acquaintances and most of those debates were very civilized, however there was one that really irked me. It was a very deep debate with a fellow gay right before the election. While I made my points he would try to defend himself by saying things like ‘how could you vote for Romney? He isn’t for you to have equal rights!’. This dumb ass didn’t even know that Obama said that it was up to the states to legalize gay marriage.
So not only did this incompetent jerk not know that Obama openly said that it was up to each state to legalize gay marriage, he didn’t even understand that Obama passing any sort of Amendment to the Constitution to legalize gay marriage is virtually impossible due to the checks and balances system of the United States.
One of my main arguments for voting for Romney during the election was that my right to marry whomever I want isn’t nearly as important as getting millions of people back to work and whenever I brought up to him, he would immediately deflect my facts with offensive remarks, calling me names and saying that I was ‘a selfish gay’.
Are you kidding me!? I am selfish because I voted for a man who has a background in growing businesses versus a President who contributed $5 trillion in debt over just four years with absolutely no solid results? I was clearly the selfish one.
After that debacle, I realized that debating with the stupid and misinformed wasn’t even worth it anymore because I would get just so frustrated; even now writing about this incident all these months later still gets my blood boiling!
Now unfortunately I believe that this mindset of ‘Barack Obama has the power to legalize gay marriage and that is all I care about’ is exactly the mindset of the overwhelming majority of the gay population and frankly lots of the youth of this country because this is the kind of conversation I had with multiple people around the same age as me (I am 20) during the election.
Every time I put out facts about the poor Obama economy, the left would try their best to disregard the facts and make poor excuses for the President or just begin calling me names. That is what the majority of the left does all the time.
I really do believe that those who associate themselves with the far left are very misguided and incredibly misinformed.
The dispute between senior Senator John McCain and Senator Ted Cruz over how “business” gets done in Washington is an indication that Ted Cruz is not an establishment D.C. Congressman and that is why I believe he will soon start to get major national exposure which help his possible bid to claim the White House in 2016.
Watch this to see how Cruz distances himself from the establishment in Washington –
I don’t remember the last time I heard something so great from a politician in Washington. Ted Cruz is not your run of the mill Republican and that’s because he isn’t a Republican. Ted Cruz is a Libertarian. From what I have seen, I believe Ted is for maximum freedom and limited government on a scale that this country has not seen since its foundation in 1776.
The fact that Ted Cruz is distancing himself from the losers in his own party and the losers across the aisle also states that he is a unique choice to be the GOP’s Presidential Nominee for 2016. If the GOP wants to reclaim the White House then they need to nominate someone who isn’t a established big government Progressive, they need to nominate someone who is for small government because all Americans can relate to that if Ted were to effectively get the message of Libertarianism across to the majority of Americans.
If Americans are too dumb to realize that big government from both sides of the aisle in Washington is part of what’s destroying this country then we deserve another President and Congress who will continue to violate our rights and drive this country in to even deeper debt.
Now Ted Cruz isn’t the only Congressman I like, I also really enjoy Senator Rand Paul. Those two men are perfect examples of exactly what he need in our nations Capital.
Well this is really fishy. First, Lois Lerner pleads the fifth and now she is place on Administrative leave? If that doesn’t mean she’s guilty and hiding some serious information regarding the IRS scandal then I don’t know what other evidence America needs to punish her.
Enjoy your paid vacation, Lois.

Washington (CNN) – The Internal Revenue Service official overseeing the unit that targeted conservative groups for several years beginning in the spring of 2010 has been placed on administrative leave, according to Congressional sources in both parties.
Lois Lerner was the director of exempt organizations when the agency filtered applications for tax exempt status for words such as “patriot” and “tea party.”

The Benghazi scandal has been going on for almost a year now and a ton of details have started to emerge lately that raises even more questions to exactly what took place on September 11, 2012.
With all the hearings and press briefings regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi, it can get quite confusing to try and piece everything together to truly understand what this whole scandal contains.
Fortunately, the Heritage Foundation has released a video that summarizes most of what’s happened within the past 8 months. I recommend watching it and posting it to your social feeds so that your friends and family can watch and be aware of just how serious and scandalous this Benghazi cover up really is.
