    I cannot imagine Ted Cruz as president of the United States. Despite his emphatic defeat of Donald Trump in the Wisconsin primary. Despite the ever-louder chorus of voices saying he is the only man who can deny Trump the Republican nomination. It used to be said that converts to Roman Catholicism were “plus catholique que le pape.” There is something about Cruz that is more American than, well, America. That should not surprise us. Born Rafael Edward Cruz in Calgary, Canada, to a Cuban and an Irish-Italian-American, Cruz is only just a “natural born citizen,” as the constitution requires all...

    At a campaign event Monday in Wisconsin, Ted Cruz backer and former 2016 candidate Carly Fiorina steps in to deflect a question from a Daily Mail reporter asking about rumors reported by the National Enquirer about Ted Cruz's personal life. DAILY MAIL REPORTER: Will you respond more definitively [than his previous denial, which was interestingly worded] to the story in the National Enquirer CARLY FIORINA: If I may-- REPORTER: No, I'm sorry, I asked the senator that question. FIORINA: I'm going to comment, okay? REPORTER: Do you have first-hand knowledge of the senator's marriage? FIORINA: I'm going to comment. This...

    A Cruz has again canceled on New Jersey. Heidi Cruz, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, had planned to hold a fundraiser in Morris County on Wednesday and attend several campaign events across the state. But a local Cruz campaign activist announced that she will be postponing her New Jersey appearances. Scott DeCristofaro, a New Jersey contact for the Cruz campaign, issued a press release Monday announcing the cancelation of a Heidi Cruz rally in Haddon Heights. DeCristofaro said she is also canceling her other New Jersey events and plans to come back to New Jersey after Wisconsin's...

    Ted Cruz dodges question about whether he's 'always been faithful' to his wife as endorser Carly Fiorina leaps in to insist a declaration that he's not an adulterer is a 'dance to Donald trump's tune' Texas senator could put National Enquirer scandal to rest with a simple statement that he has never strayed in his 14-year marriage Instead he has batted down the supermarket tabloid's speculative story about five alleged affairs in a more limited fashion Carly Fiorina leaped in to intercept DailyMail.com's request for a blanket statement of marital fidelity and Cruz ultimately punted on the question Fiorina pleaded...
  • For All Those Saying Trump Has Majority Support, Here's A Stunning Fact

    Daily Wire ^ | 3/25/2016 | Hank Berrien
    Donald Trump has not won a majority of the vote in any state he's won. Ted Cruz has done it twice, in Wyoming and Utah. Trump's enormous unpopularity with the majority of voters is a telling indicator that he simply cannot win a general election. With his constant attacks on women, whether they be Megyn Kelly, Carly Fiorina, or Heidi Cruz, Trump's paltry appeal among women cripples him even further. As expert mathematician Nate Silver pointed out on Friday, if women sour on Trump, the results of his efforts in the general election would look like this: For all of...
  • Ted Cruz WINS Louisiana, Donald Trump Threatens To Sue

    Donald Trump barely won Louisiana’s primary. In fact, he lost the actual primary day turnout. A big win in early voting helped him keep the lead, but it was close. So close, in fact, that for all intents and purposes, it was a draw. Enter Louisiana politics. Via my colleague streiff: What is very clear is that if Donald Trump is not awarded the nomination on the first ballot, his bloc of delegates will melt away and his wins are not being capitalized upon because his campaign is essentially incompetent. You see, when it came down to the actual election...

    An 'extremely rare' case of twins born with different fathers has been reported in Vietnam after a DNA test was ordered. The bi-parental twins were taken for testing because of stark differences in their appearances, according to local reports. Twins born with different fathers can happen if two eggs from the same mother are fertilised by sperm from two different men during separate acts of sexual intercourse within the same ovulation period, AFP reports.

    CNN is not only desperate to absolve itself of its legitimate responsibility for spreading the false idea that Dr. Ben Carson was dropping out of the presidential race last week, CNN is also hoping to complete a three-bank shot that will damage Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the process. Saturday night, CNN went so far as to have their phony left-wing "fact-checker" Tom Foreman lie about Cruz. For all of this to make sense, let's start at the beginning. Last Monday night, during the Iowa Caucus, I watched CNN live and saw the Carson segment in question that lit this...

    Ted Cruz announced on Sunday the endorsements of six state representatives who had previously supported Rand Paul. At least one representative was surprised to see his name. The representative, J.R. Hoell, had met with Mr. Cruz, senator from Texas, on Friday, he said. "I made it clear I could not support him," Mr. Hoell said in a phone interview on Sunday evening

    "He said he's sorry that this happened and he wants to sit down and talk," Carson said in an interview with The Washington Post. "He wants to discuss the whole thing and clear the air." "To be determined," Carson said when asked where they may meet. "Doesn't matter." The Carson campaign has been critical of Cruz after his campaign spread false rumors during the Iowa caucus, and sent voicemails to Iowa precinct captains suggestings that Carson was dropping out of the race.

    If Donald Trump is the Tony Soprano of American politics, Ted Cruz is a less-affable version of Mr. Haney from Green Acres (Ok - not quite, but sort of! Do feel free to say, H&R readers, which movie character is a better fit with Cruz). But the only thing cleverer than Cruz's impression of Inigo Montoya in Princess Bride (and not the least because it irritates Billy Crystal and the insufferably self-righteous Mandy Patinkin so much) is the campaign strategy he devised in Iowa to defeat the ethanol cartel and win the primary, I note in my column at The...

    New audio obtained exclusively by Breitbart News indicates that as the Iowa caucuses began on Monday night, the Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) campaign called precinct captains informing them that Dr. Ben Carson was suspending campaigning, and instructing them to tell voters they should "not waste a vote on Ben Carson and vote for Ted Cruz." The calls were placed after the Carson campaign had already clarified that Carson was not suspending his campaign. Nancy Bliesman, a precinct captain for Cruz in Crawford County, Iowa, told Breitbart News that she received two voice mails-one at 7:07 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST),...

    February 4, 2016 Trump: Politicians are 'full of s---' by Bradford Richardson Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he doesn't want to be politically incorrect, but he can't stop himself from saying politicians are "full of sh*t." "These people - I'd like to use really foul language," Trump said at a rally in Exeter, N.H. "I won't do it. I was going to say they're really full of sh*t. But I won't say that." "No, it's true. It's true. I won't say it. I won't say it. But they are," he added. "But I won't say that because it's too...
