  • Exclusive RedState Video: Ted Cruz Explains why His Position on H-1B Visas Has Changed

    RedState ^ | December 23rd, 2015 | Leon H. Wolf
    I had the opportunity to sit down yesterday with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) at a campaign event in Nashville and ask him several questions. One of the questions I asked was whether Senator Cruz still supported expanding the H-1B visa program, as he has in the past. Senator Cruz indicated that he no longer does, and you can see his explanation hereTed Cruz explains why his view of H-1B visas has changed (Video)Transcript: RedState: Senator, I think the path to legalization issue has been beaten to death and I won’t go over it again.

  • Ted Cruz, Jeff Sessions Roll Out Antidote To Broken H-1B Program: American Jobs First Act

    Sens. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)82%together are promoting new legislation to reform the H-1B visa program, after scores of abuses by companies including Disney, Southern California Edison and more. The bill, the American Jobs First Act of 2015, is essentially an antidote to the woes of the H-1B program. The bill, which represents a crackdown on immigration program abuses by special interests, has several components. First, it requires companies that use H-1B workers to pay such visa holders “either what an American worker who did identical or similar work made two years prior to the...

    The president has nominated attorney J. Mark McWatters for the bank board. However, Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), chairman of the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, has said he's "in no hurry" to hold a hearing or a vote on the nomination. Other pending confirmations take precedence, he said.The last of the 2015 lobbying reports are in, and the top corporate spender turns out to have been the Boeing Company, at $21.9 million. Not coincidentally, the aerospace giant also outranks thousands of other firms in profiting from the subsidies doled out by the Export-Import Bank. Last year, Boeing benefitted...

    There is a very good reason that so many conservatives don't trust Marco Rubio. Some would have you believe it was youthful naivete and inexperience that allowed him to be compromised by the Gang of Eight. I don't think so. I think he was offered money and power and immediately caved. Donald Trump's Senior Policy Adviser, Stephen Miller, is telling a story about Marco Rubio and how he treated an ICE officer during the Gang of Eight's manipulations and it is revealing. Not in a good way either. Miller was the communications director for Sen. Jeff Sessions, so he was...

    The local GOP isn't choosing sides on whether U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is qualified to seek his party's presidential nomination -- at least, not right now. Why's that important? Because, according to a Friday report at al.com, a handful of Cullman County residents has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that Cruz, by virtue of his Canadian birth to a mother who is a U.S. citizen, is not a "natural born" U.S. citizen and is, therefore, not legally qualified to run for the presidency. The suit, a copy of which al.com said it received Friday from the Drake Law Firm...

    Donald Trump has to be happy seeing the latest results out of Alabama, where he is currently beating Ted Cruz by 16 points. Though the state only awards 47 delegates on Super Tuesday, if things stay about the same as they are now, he stands to gain a lot of delegates from the Yellowhammer State. Of course, things can change quickly, as the nation saw first-hand in Iowa on Monday night. Marco Rubio had a surprising surge to a strong third place finish, clearly positioning himself as the establishment candidate of choice. Three days after the Iowa Caucuses have finished...

    To be candid, there’s not usually a line of reporters waiting to talk to Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL). But last week, with only four days to go until the Iowa caucuses, the 69-year-old glassy-eyed former U.S. attorney nearly forgot to cast his vote on a routine matter he was so busy moving from one interview to the next outside of the Senate chamber. The four-term senator is hardly a new face in the Republican Party, nor is the soft-spoken and twangy Sessions considered the party’s rising star. But suddenly, almost out of nowhere, and for reasons even he doesn’t fully...

    Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, a leading voice on trade, immigration and executive powers, is urging Americans to choose their next president carefully because 2016 "is the last chance for the American people to take back control of their government." In a sober interview with Secrets, the Republican warned that liberal special interests, Wall Street moguls, and international media conglomerates are fast turning the United States into just another member of the European Union and that the effort is being led by a Democratic president eager to go his own way with executive orders. "This election is different because we have...

Boutwell Auditorium, typically used as a warming station in such situations, was not available Monday night because presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders spoke to a crowd of thousands. Factoring in wind chill, it was expected to feel more like 15 degrees on the streets of Birmingham.

"Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act," Moore wrote in his order that was issued Jan. 6. The phrase "ministerial duty" refers to a July 2015 directive in which Moore argued "public officials are ministers of God assigned the duty of...

The only problem is the group can't find a current or former player willing to step up as a plaintiff.

And on Monday night, No. 2-ranked Bama goes for its fourth crown in seven years against No. 1-ranked Clemson in the College Football Championship Game in Glendale, Arizona.

Chief Justice Roy Moore said probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue marriage licenses in conflict with the state marriage amendment pending a decision from the Alabama Supreme Court.

    The South will play a crucial role in the 2016 presidential contest, both in the nominating process and in the General Election. For the Republicans, Dixie's plethora of primaries come quickly after the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary and will probably determine the nominee. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton's strong support among African Americans in the Southern primaries should cement her already commanding lead for her party's nomination. And in the General Election, at least three Southern states are likely to be competitive and may well determine the outcome of the race for the White House. Until...

The predicted Sanders-O'Malley ticket garnered 404 electoral votes to Jeb Bush-Marco Rubio's 114 votes. In the popular vote, Sanders earned 741 votes (49 percent) to Bush's 577 (38 percent). The famously accurate mock election correctly predicted the outcomes of the 2008 and 2012 elections, and the university claims it's the "largest and most elaborate mock presidential simulation in the nation."...

    The historic city of Selma, Alabama — a battleground during the Civil Rights Movement — is now reportedly abortion-free, after pro-lifers confirmed that abortionist, Samuel Lett, has ceased abortions in his illegal abortion facility. The abortion practice has been transformed into a weight-loss center. Under Alabama law, medical centers that commit 10 or more abortions each month must be licensed as an abortion facility. Investigations into the Central Alabama Women’s Clinic, which was operated by Lett, revealed that the center was committing more than the allotted amount. Leaders from CEC For Life, Operation Rescue, Life Legal Defense Foundation, the National...

    Jamarlon Edwards is too young to buy beer, but he's charged with murder, capital murder, theft and robbery in a string of carjackings in the Birmingham area. Aaron Thomas, 17, is charged with capital murder. So are 18-year-old James Reynolds and 19-year-old Dominic Keeth. Ditto 16-year-old Anthony Murray, 18-year-old Harold Mason, 18-year-old Rufus Clyde Jr. and 18-year-old Cameron Green. It's been that kind of year. An epidemic of children turned killers. In the Birmingham area in 2015, at least 16 teens were charged with capital murder or murder, including a 15-year-old who is said to have killed three in...

    For one, if it was not clear before, Cruz is making himself entirely unacceptable to all but “very conservative” Republicans. Moreover, he is making himself noncompetitive in a general election context. Even before this latest spasm of extremism, Cruz does worse against Hillary Clinton than do all the other GOP candidates, except Trump. Combined with his vehement opposition to gay marriage (even advocating election of Supreme Court justices, as if that would improve his chances of reversing the court’s ruling), opposition to abortion even in cases of rape and incest, his leadership in the government shutdown and the absence of...

    During a weekend campaign stop in south Alabama, Republican senator and presidential hopeful Ted Cruz said he had "three words" for people questioning whether the southern border can be secured: "Secretary Jeff Sessions." "We are going to deport criminal illegal aliens, we are going to pass Kate's Law [mandatory minimum sentences for illegal immigrants who are deported but later return to the U.S.], we are going to end welfare benefits for those here illegally," Cruz told a raucous crowd of over 1,300 Alabamians. "For anyone who wonders, 'Can we really secure the border?' I've got three words for you: Secretary...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions gave a full-throated defense of Sen. Ted Cruz at an event Friday in Daphne, Alabama. Cruz is facing attacks from Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and others over technical issues regarding amendments to a 2013 immigation reform bill which never passed. "People need to remember this, because this election is going to decide, the crowd who pushed that bill," Sessions said. "Will they be in the White House, and allowed to push their agenda, or will we have somebody else?" ... "In 2013 they spent a billion and a half dollars to promote this legislation, the political consultants,...

    The Trussville Tribune ^ | December 20, 2015 | Scott Buttram
    In the confirmed red state of Alabama, few areas can match the conservatism of The Trussville Tribune coverage area. I’ve often joked that our neck of the woods is so conservative that it makes Shelby County look down right liberal. No doubt that northeast Jefferson County and our neighboring communities in St. Clair County are a God fearing, church going, Bible toting, smaller government, anti-illegal immigration, anti-abortion group of voters. And no one is apologizing for that belief system. When U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz visits the Trussville Civic Center on Sunday afternoon, he’ll find substantial support among the locals and...

    Sen. Ted Cruz will swing through Alabama this weekend as he attempts to solidify support among Southern evangelical voters, a key demographic in the race for the GOP presidential nomination. Polls show that Cruz is a popular candidate among voters identifying themselves as "very" conservative, including tea party activists who seem to have embraced his anti-government rhetoric. And if Cruz can solidify that voting base, insiders say he has a good chance – like Rick Santorum in 2012 and Mike Huckabee in 2008 – to win the Alabama GOP primary. "I do think the 'SEC Primary' is Cruz's best chance...
