By Caleb Howe


The Ted Cruz campaign has posted a new, powerful video on YouTube today ahead of the 2014 election season.

MAKE D.C. LISTEN. That’s a great call to action. The campaign adds in the description: “We must carry on the fight to restore liberty in 2014! Please donate today: http://bit.ly/1bciLSZ,” which lead to the donation form for the Ring In 2014 campaign drive.

It may be intended as a fundraiser for just one campaign, but it is a strong reminder for conservatives across America about what’s at stake, and what we have to do in the upcoming year. It’s going to be a fight. Let’s get in it.

    Ted Cruz: David

    Washington: Goliath

    History always repeats itself, and we certainly have a David & Goliath moment regarding our country and those in charge. David overcame everyone elses biggest fear. David had no fear….all he had was faith and he defeated his giant.

    There is hope.

    • CBKC

      Yep! there is hope. The David and Goliath comparisons are great to reach most Americans (the 80% or so of the Judeo-Christian persuasion).
      How much would it cost to get this video on MSM and FOX? There should be a fund somewhere that we can contribute to which will get this video ad nauseum air play! TV is everything for the LoVo people!

  • giveususfree

    Let’s give Cruz control in 2014.
    I hope my state will knock out Shaheen from the Senate, and Shea-Porter and Kuster from the House this year!
    .
    “I’m not here to talk about Benghazi, I’m here to talk about the Middle East” Yeah, HER!
    Kuster’s last stand.

    • http://www.crossworksme.com/ GiantM

      You may have Shaheen….but I’ve been dealing with Susan Collins who happens to be imo the “Queen Rhino” of Washington.

      • giveususfree

        Oh yes, Collins.
        Love that avatar btw, funny.

      • Kansas Gal

        So sorry you have Collins. But we have to bear her votes too. On the other hand we had Sebelius. Now the nation has her. We just have to do the best we can. Cruz gives us hope!

  • jgilman1

    Nice! The next few years are going to be fun.

  • clockwindingdown

    EXCELLENT as always!

  • mcgurn

    At the end I would put in bold letters,” This video has not been endorsed by barrack Obama”!

  • New Dixie Nation

    He is the best senator by far.

  • marketcomp

    WOW! Is anyone else doing this right now?! No because they are cowards and don’t have the ability to fight. GO CRUZ!

  • BeccaLeigh

    4 years ago, I’d see a video like this and it would restore my hope in the America that I grew up in and I’d think that I wasn’t just fooled into believing in all the greatness that is the United States (after all, I was in my mid-20s and felt like I had been fooled my whole life and built up just to fall down) but now, I just don’t have that same pride and hope in our future……I wish more than anything that I did but after 4 years of listening to how ignorant my generation is and how it’s all our fault that we’re in the situation we’re in right now, it’s just not there anymore

    • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

      That’s the communist way: batter down the peoples’ spirit then just walk in and rule them like sheep.
      No – I’m fighting ’till the end, like my father would have done. Cannot win if we don’t fight! Just sit down, you’re guaranteed to lose. Minimally, send money to those who do fight.

    • CapeLady

      You are too young to remember what it was like when Jimmy Carter was president. He was much like Obama, a terrible president with destructive policies and he gutted our military and was unable to rescue the American hostages that were being held in Iran. Gas was expensive and we lined up at the pumps on odd and even days to purchase gas. Everyone was talking about the “new normal” and America in decline. In a way, things were worse because mortgage rates were over 16%, inflation and unemployment were in double digits. There was even a new measurement coined as the “misery index”… and we were miserable as a nation. Then… along came Ronald Reagan – and he won two landslides because he reversed course and implemented pro-growth conservative policies that got the economy humming again, he secured the release of the hostages, he was a statesman who rebuilt our military and restored respect for America in the world… and he gave Americans HOPE for our future again!!! Yes, things are bad, and Obama is very destructive – but this is America and we are an exceptional nation because we are the only nation in the history of mankind that was founded on the concept that our rights come from God and not government. We have a tough battle because there is a lot of ignorance out there – but there are also many Americans who still believe in our Constitution and will fight to save this republic! Less than 30% of the colonials participated in our Revolution and won our independence – we have at least that many Americans who have not surrendered to socialism and a tyrannical federal government – it takes the right leader and I think Ted Cruz is that man! So, don’t give up!!! I know it is hard because the liberals control most of the media and certainly the universities, etc… but the new media is on the rise and the Internet enables us to know the truth and get the message out! And they are working on an Article V convention of state legislatures to amend the Constitution and that gives us hope in that we can circumvent the corruption of the federal government and get term limits, a balanced budget amendment, rein in the bureaucracies, and even repeal Obamacare!!! If you want a future of American liberty and prosperity – you need to help educate your generation and open people’s eyes to the truth. Between the high unemployment and Obamacare, this will be impacting their lives negatively and hopefully they will be more willing to listen and learn!!! We can turn this around – we just can’t depend on the Democrats or the Republican establishment do accomplish it! (They opposed Reagan too!)

      • Fiveseven

        Very well said!

      • Poptoy1949

        Everything CapeLady just said is 100% True. I remember it well. We can come back from all of this……2014 is extremely crucial when it comes to taking back the Senate. Take the Senate from the Democrats and obama is pretty well spayed or neutered. I am not sure which? He sure as hell does not act like a man.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        You made excellent points, when I hear Democrats and liberals uttering the words it’s the law of the land (Obamacare) I’ve always like to remind them that prohibition was also called the law of the land and it took almost 20 years but it was repealed, and as you say things are bad and sometimes it looks hopeless, but I know we will turn this around.

      • John Queue

        Watching Ronald Reagan enjoy his victories (ergo our Nation), is something I will never forget as long as I live. I hope to live long enough to watch the implosion of the liberal establishment and the crony GOPeePee-in-their-pants fall hard and long. I pray I sense a new Revolution in that those who continue to use their people as the means to their debauchery will finally fall and all will be held responsible for the havoc they have wreaked upon a trusting people. And then, all of them put on trial to fight for their very own freedom; a freedom they have so offhandedly played with as if it were some high-stakes poker game where none had to ante up any of their own monies. May they all rot in their own future miseries.

        Awesome post, CapeLady. I was moved :)

      • Patriot077

        Having lived through the Carter years and the “misery index” I loved reading your reply to Becca. I was probably about her age back then and the future looked gloomy indeed. I will never forget Reagan and the hope and pride he restored in America. Now I’m getting long in the tooth so to speak and Ted Cruz invigorates me the same way that Reagan did. I have pretty much lived my life but I want what we had for our kids and grandchildren. May God bless this nation once again.

    • famouswolf

      No, kid, it’s not your fault. It’s ours.
      We had it all, and have almost thrown it away. But…there’s always hope. Unlike my generation, learn from what’s gone before. It’s all there. Life will never be perfect, not in the real world, but it can be good. Don’t ever give up.
      Many of us will be right there at your side, trying to get things back on track. And we will or die trying…many of us care and will help all we can. That’s a promise.
      You were born in the greatest country that ever was established by the human race. That’s a fact. It can be again. In spite of my generation.

  • timsrighty

    Take that McCain and the rest of you rinos!

  • Sentinel

    Very motivational. We are in for a fight indeed.

  • Crassus

    Ted Cruz is a great American.

  • c4pfan

    Thanks for posting it. I wonder if it’s by the same people that do Sarah’s vids? Passcode Creative, I believe they are called.

  • Poptoy1949

    Absolutely wonderful. GREAT ! GOD Bless this fine young man.

  • John Queue

    We need to make DC listen…or physically toss them out into the street onto their laurels… No offense, Laurel… :) Great Video, TED!!

    • John Queue

      Dang, I had to watch it again… I couldn’t help myself. LMAO!

  • edsmanedup

    I just watched a terrifying 2 hour video at frontpagemag.com which is David Horowitz. It was behind “Occupy communism” in a mutimedia section behind that video, 2 deep, dealing with Agenda 21. I’ve been following this stuff for a while but this brings out the names and faces behind this very real threat…Check it out Scoop and post it….be very afraid…

    • Patriot077

      I tried unsuccessfully to find. I couldn’t even locate “occupy communism”. Could you post a link?

      • edsmanedup

        patriot077…go to fpmag, hit videos, top right, fast forward ted cruz…fast forward david horowitz and you will see the multimedia screen… click on the one about agenda 21, 2hours…sorry I am low tech or I would post it..

        • Patriot077

          Thanks. I’ll give it a try. UN agenda is oozing out everywhere. Most don’t recognize what it is that is driving their state and local governments. And it is very serious.

          • edsmanedup

            The deeper I go the uglier it gets. These people are truly monsters on a global scale. Keep working that site I gave you especially those multimedia sections at the end of the particular clips.

            • Patriot077

              I can’t find it at all. What is the name of it?

  • edsmanedup

    Caleb… how come you disc me??? Never mind:)

    • Caleb Howe

      Disc you?

  • calvin12

    I live month-to-month, I very seldom have any money left over at the end of the month. I have cut out fast internet, the only TV I have is thru my computer, big electricity *hores are microwaves and coffee machines (Really, google it,) it’s cheaper to boil water or reheat on the stove so that is what I do, the hot water tank is turned down way low. I think twice, usually 3 times before I splurge on a Big Gulp once every few months.

    I’ve sent something, not much, but something to Senator Cruz and the PATRIOTS fighting for my home, my freedom, my America.

    Give. Please. Give. No matter the amount. Give.

    • johnfromjersey

      You me and a hell of a lot more are in the same boat. Funny, it seems that 5 years ago, we always had a few bucks left, after the bills are paid… now?, not so much.

  • Kansas Gal

    It’s nice to see this on breitbart, but we need to view it on youtube to give it momentum and propel it to front page view. Let’s all promote it by giving it likes on youtube.

  • fedupMan

    You should see his dad Rafael Cruz speak also. He’s all over you tube as is Ted Cruz.

  • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

    A very good kickoff to 2014.

    2014… because impeachment

    • Dr. Strangelove

      What a dream come true! If we can only get enough conservatives in congress in ’14 to implement impeachment.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    Cruz rocks. If I believed in reincarnation, I’d say Reagan was back.

    • Conservator1

      My thoughts exactly; it was an awesome and uplifting video that was definitely Reaganesque.

      • Dr. Strangelove

        +1

  • c4pfan

    I donated!

  • Amjean

    We need to make DC accountable.

  • LIBERTYUSA

    …TED CRUZ for PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 2016 . America it is time .”

  • Freedomswatch

    I donated too. Love my Senator!

  • ruffusduffus

    Beautiful! God bless the Cruz family, because many no-good people will be gunning for him.

  • kimber1911

    I don’t live in Texas but I sure wish I did.. This man is a inspiration to keep up the fight for clean honest government.. I had quit giving money to The Republicans a few years back.. But to Ted Cruz I don’t mind giving.. I know it’s going to a good man with an honest heart..

  • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

    We need to quit electing liars. (I mean lawyers) They go to liar school, learn how to act and give good speaches in the court room, then they become politicians. Ted Cruz is the next John Boehner. Remember all those speaches that got everybody to have tingles running down their legs? Conservatives are now even more desperate than they were then. All that is being done here is that a politician is telling people what they want to hear.
    Does anyone think that Cruz would push an agenda of restoring liberty to this country? Would he shut down the tyrannical regulatory agencies? Would he refuse to enforce or use the Patriot Act and the NDAA? Would he quit funding the police state in this country? (buying off and militarizing local police depts) Why does anyone think that he would be any more of a constitutional president than any of the rest? They all run the same Agenda. Essentially, that agenda is one of globalism. It is a managed shut down of the USA and it’s constitution.
    Cruz was brought up, politically, by the establishment. He was John Boehners lawyer at one time. His wife is a CFR member who pushes a globalist agenda. (That means that our sovereignty is not important) She was the vice president of a Goldman Sachs bank. (I hope that I don’t have to quantify that)
    At least don’t say that there were no conservatives who warned about him.

    • Billie Slash

      You forgot to say ‘Ron Paul 2016’!

      • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

        I will support anyone who can’t get anything accomplished in congress over a thirty year period due to the fact that they vote on constitutionality, and can’t be bought off. If I were going to vote in this fraudulent electoral system, I would certainly be looking for someone who didn’t work their way up the establishment ladder prior to be an instant rising star in the media and senate. That is the most obvious sign of all that a person is being propped up by the establishment.

    • factsobill

      What rock did you crawl out from under? You”re still voting for your self , I see!?

      • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

        What has Cruz actually accomplished or done that makes you a supporter? How many lawyers with good speaches are you going to vote for? Does a fillibuster or a speach prove anything? If Cruz was continually pointing out the core issues, such as the private central bank enslaving the American people and buying off politicians, then I would be able to give him the benefit of the doubt. Those who don’t bite the hand that feeds them are always questionable.

  • BMinPA

    Let me get this straight. He goes on a crusade to “defund” Obamacare and yet just voted FOR a budget that cements in place. I am not impressed.
