Cruz: Climate Change is Not Science – it’s a Religion (Video)

“‘Denier’ is not the language of science.”

On TheBlaze TV last night, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz told Glenn Beck in an interview that “Climate change is not science – it’s religion.”

“It’s religion,” he said. “Look at the language where they call you a denier.” As “the child of two scientists,” Cruz pointed out that “’denier’ is not the language of science.” The “essence of the scientific method,” he said, is to start with an original hypothesis and then pursue evidence that disproves that hypothesis.

“Any good scientist is a skeptic,” Cruz said. “If he’s not, he or she should not be a scientist.”

Cruz has no issue with being described as a climate change skeptic. He told Beck,

“Jake Tapper asked a couple of the candidates [at the last debate], ‘Are you a climate change skeptic?’ and, for whatever reason, they were afraid to answer, ‘Yes.’ I tried to jump in. I said, ‘Jake, you want a skeptic, I’m right here.’”

Former Congressman: I’m Quitting GOP by Tom Tancredo

In a panel discussion at the University of Colorado after the recent Republican debate, I was asked by a student why she should be a Republican. The question forced me to ask myself the same thing.

I gave the young woman the standard talking points–that Republicans believe in smaller government, individual rights, fiscal responsibility, and free enterprise. But as I drove home, her question–and my inability to respond with any level of real conviction–got me thinking: Does the Republican Party leadership fight for these values and principles today?

After much thought, I reluctantly concluded that the answer is “no.” The proudly socialist Democrats are full of passionate intensity, while the Republican leadership is full of pathetic excuses. After this week’s House GOP “budget deal,” which betrays nearly every promise made to grassroots conservatives since 2010, I have decided it is time to end my affiliation with the Republican Party.

This decision has been incubating over the past 17 years, years of watching the downward spiral of the Party of Lincoln and Reagan into the Party of Democrat Lite.

As a Member of Congress for ten years (1998-2008), I was subjected to threats and pressures from the Congressional Leadership and President George W. Bush to support the creation of an expensive Medicare prescription drug program–even though creating a new government spending program financed by massive debt flies in the face of the Republican Party’s core principles.

Our most powerful and influential “leaders” were shoving this down our throats in a crass political effort to use taxpayer money to buy the votes of senior citizens–particularly in the state of Florida in the next presidential election.

Orban Accuses Soros of Stoking Refugee Wave to Weaken Europe

Soros, who was born in Hungary and is one of the biggest philanthropists in eastern Europe via his foundations and university, gives grants to organizations that provide legal assistance to asylum seekers.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban accused billionaire investor George Soros of being a prominent member of a circle of “activists” trying to undermine European nations by supporting refugees heading to the continent from the Middle East and beyond.

“His name is perhaps the strongest example of those who support anything that weakens nation states, they support everything that changes the traditional European lifestyle,” Orban said in an interview on public radio Kossuth. “These activists who support immigrants inadvertently become part of this international human-smuggling network.”

Rights groups have criticized Orban for building a razor-wire fence on the border, tightening asylum laws and boosting his support among voters with anti-immigrant rhetoric.

Immigrants caught at border believe families can stay in US

“This internal Border Patrol document shows that the Obama administration’s lax immigration policies are the culprit for the ongoing surge at our borders,” said Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

Nearly a year after the Obama administration launched a massive public relations campaign to dispel rumors of a free pass for immigrant families crossing the border illegally, internal intelligence files from the Homeland Security Department suggest that effort is failing.

Hundreds of immigrant families caught illegally crossing the Mexican border between July and September told U.S. immigration agents they made the dangerous trip in part because they believed they would be permitted to stay in the United States and collect public benefits.

The interviews with immigrants by federal agents were intended to help the Obama administration understand what might be driving a puzzling surge in the numbers of border crossings that started over the summer.

Administration efforts to stop the flow of immigrant families, primarily from Central America, have included public service campaigns in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to highlight the dangers and consequences of making the trek.
