Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen. -George Orwell

National Review's Ian Tuttle and Radio America's Greg Corombos discuss current events. Today's topics: The Clintons are embroiled in another fundraising scandal, the latest ISIS atrocities, and Donald Trump threatens to run again in 2016.

Cruz on Clinton Foundation: "Hillary Clinton embodies the bipartisan corruption in Washington"
Cruz also warned about the need to frame the narrative in 2016. Hillary will run largely on a nostalgia theme, Cruz says, to remind voters "when Democrats are competent." Embracing Bill Clinton will help Hillary run away from Barack Obama and his record, which "is a manifest disaster." To defeat Hillary, Republicans need to look to the future rather than the failed past — but more to the point, need to move away from consultant-directed candidates to find an authentic conservative. "Show me where you've bled" for conservative principles, Cruz advises conservatives at CPAC to demand. "Don't tell me – show me."
Regarding immigration, Cruz blasted Democrats for choosing demagoguery over real action. The American public has a broad, bipartisan consensus for border security and to streamline legal immigration, but Barack Obama ignores that to sow division and resentment. That's what his executive amnesty is designed to accomplish, Cruz said, and to paint Republicans as extremists for wanting to actually accomplish something.
Finally, Cruz reminded everyone that Ronald Reagan didn't lead a political revolution by worrying about positioning on a political spectrum to strategize how to fragment the electorate. He stood on principled conservatism unapologetically, drew a line in the sand, and attracted new voters and crossovers by drawing a sharp contrast. To paraphrase, if the choice is between two candidates who are almost indistinguishable, voters will choose their party's nominee every time. Only by providing a real choice — and a commitment to stick to those principles — will Republicans win another presidential election...
