    In two letters, a bipartisan group of lawmakers sharply criticized Apple and Blizzard over their recent actions in China. The first, addressed to Apple CEO Tim Cook, expresses “strong concern” over the company’s decision to remove an app used by Hong Kong protesters from its App Store. The app, called HKMap, tracked police presence and was used by pro-democracy activists, but was removed earlier this month after Apple claimed it was being used for criminal activity. The app’s developers said there was no evidence of that, and Apple has been slammed for the move. “Cases like these raise real concern...

    Sen. Ted Cruz slammed LeBron James for “kissing up to Chinese communists and tyrants” — amid the backlash the Lakers superstar faces for his recent comments on Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests, according to a report. “I got to say LeBron James, he’s a hell of a player, but it sure seems his comments were more interested in money and making bucks and I get it, Nike is a big sponsor of his and he makes a whole lot of money, but kissing up to Chinese communists and tyrants and apologizing for murderers, that’s not a good look for the NBA,”...

    A “diehard Houston Rockets fan,” Mr. Cruz said China’s reaction to Rockets general manager Daryl Morey’s tweet last week in support of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong shows “just how powerful the protests are.” “[H]e tweeted a very benign tweet where he said, stand for freedom, stand with Hong Kong. And the Chinese communist government, they just about lost it,” Mr. Cruz said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in an interview from Hong Kong. The NBA has sought to repair relations with China after the government-controlled Chinese broadcaster announced a boycott of Rockets games while Chinese commercial sponsors cancelled their...

    On Sunday’s broadcast of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said it was not appropriate for President Donald Trump to ask China to investigate 2020 presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden regarding his business ties. Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: So China’s a- a surveillance state. Is it appropriate for President Trump to be saying– CRUZ: Yeah. BRENNAN: –China should look into the Biden family? Is that appropriate? CRUZ: I- look, of course not. Elections in the U.S. should be decided by- by Americans and it’s not the business of- of foreign...

    A bipartisan coalition of members of Congress sent a letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver on Wednesday “to express our deep concern” over the NBA’s statements surrounding controversy over a tweet last week by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, who expressed support for pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. “It is outrageous that the Chinese Communist Party is using its economic power to suppress the speech of American inside the United States. It is also outrageous that the NBA has caved to Chinese government demands for contrition,” the letter reads. It was co-signed by eight members of Congress, including Republican...

    President Donald Trump's staunchest allies voiced outrage Monday after he suddenly declared that U.S. troops would allow Turkey to attack Syrian Kurds who have fought as U.S. allies for years to tamp down the Islamic State. The president later threatened to destroy the economy of Turkey, a NATO member, if it goes too far against the Kurds. But that did little to mollify concerns overseas or in Congress after Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw troops and get them out of the way of Turkish forces. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said it would be "disgraceful if we sat...

    en. Ted Cruz sounds ready to run for president again – in 2024. Speaking to The Monitor after a breakfast session with reporters, the Texas Republican didn’t hesitate when asked if he would take another crack at the White House. “Look, I hope to run again,” said Senator Cruz, who was the runner-up last time to Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. “We came very, very close in 2016. And it’s the most fun I’ve ever had in my life.”

    While U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz expressed unhappiness Saturday with some of Donald Trump's comments related to the president's call with Ukraine's leader, the Texas Republican emphatically pushed back against the Democratic movement to impeach the commander in chief. Cruz said that he had read both the recently released whistleblower complaint and the readout of Trump's July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, both of which characterize Trump as soliciting the Ukrainian government's assistance in investigating unsubstantiated allegations against the business activities of former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. "I expected it to be" worse than it was,...

    Just hours after the White House released a summary of President Donald Trump's call with the president of Ukraine — in which Trump urged the Ukrainian leader to do him a "favor" — Texas Sen. John Cornyn stood on the floor of the Senate and tore into House Democrats for moving forward with an impeachment inquiry based in part on that call.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said in a statement Tuesday that lawmakers should be focusing on improving the country, not the “relentless political circus” driven by the Democrats’ hatred of the president. Cruz released a statement Tuesday, chastising Democrats for moving forward with impeachment despite no evidence of an “illegal quid pro quo” between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky regarding an investigation into possible corrupt actions by former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. Cruz said:

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) weighed in Thursday on the Republican Senate primary in New Hampshire, endorsing a candidate other than President Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who Trump has said would make “a great senator.” Cruz threw his support behind former New Hampshire House speaker Bill O’Brien on a call into a Boston-based radio show, saying he is “a principled conservative” who “knows how to produce results.” “Bill O’Brien has backbone. He is willing to stand up and do the right thing,” Cruz told conservative host Jeff Kuhner on WRKO AM 680. “I think he would make a phenomenal...

    President Donald Trump reacted to Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s gun confiscation talk by suggesting “Dummy Beto” sank any chances for gun control legislation. Breitbart News reported that O’Rourke used the September 12, 2019, Democrat debate to say, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.” The next day he elaborated on the statement, making clear that turning over AR-15s would be “mandatory” if his plan were in place. On September 18, 2019, Trump tweeted: “Dummy Beto made it much harder to make a deal.” He added that Beto’s comments “Convinced many that Dems just want to take your guns away.” A...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) backed up “The Princess Bride” star Cary Elwes’s dismay at the notion of a potential remake of the 1987 classic on Wednesday. “There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one,” Elwes tweeted Tuesday, paraphrasing a line from the film, in response to a Variety article that quotes Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra as saying “very famous people whose names I won’t use” want to remake the film. “I have never agreed with a statement more,” Cruz tweeted Wednesday, quoting Elwes’s tweet. Cruz has repeatedly discussed...

    Breitbart News reported that the memo largely mirrored Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) gun control bill and would require the issuance of a “bill of sale” and the preservation of a “chain of title” for gun sales that do not currently require government oversight. The Hill reports that Attorney General William Barr tried to talk Sen. Cruz into supporting the gun control, but Cruz would not.

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), seizing the opportunity, hilariously pointed out something that the California government might have missed: their ban would impede the chances of their own senator, Kamala Harris, from traveling to the state that is the first nominating contest in the Democratic Party presidential primaries. He tweeted, "Wow, California's ban on travel to Iowa's really gonna hamstring Kamala Harris's presidential campaign."

    ABC host George Stephanopoulos mentioned Cruz's warning that Texas could be a potential background state in the 2020 presidential election and noted that five Republican House members from the state have come forward saying they would not seek reelection next year. Cruz claimed that the third Democratic presidential debate in Houston on Thursday was a "very bad night" for Democrats because the candidates did not mention the economy's relative strength through the third quarter of this year. "If you look at Thursday night, the entire night of the debate, not a single Democrat talked about jobs, not a single Democrat...
