Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the following statement in observance of Independence Day:“If you are like me and pay attention to the news every day, you can easily be overwhelmed by all the simultaneous events that seem to indicate an impending American decline.

    Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has once again come in for a barrage of criticism as a result of his comments about immigration into the United States. This time Trump has latched onto the tragic murder of tourist Kate Steinle who was shot and killed Wednesday at Pier 14 in San Francisco. Trump used the announcement of his presidential campaign to brand Mexican immigrants as Criminals, drug runners and rapists. Trumps comments have been widely criticized as xenophobic and have led to his being dropped by NBC and Nascar amongst others.

    Sen. Ted Cruz defended Donald Trump on immigration and called out “the Washington cartel” he says is ignoring the issue, in an interview to be broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”“I salute Donald Trump for focusing on the need to address illegal immigration,” Cruz said of his rival for the 2016 GOP nomination, adding that it “seems the favorite sport of the Washington media is to encourage some Republicans to attack other Republicans.”“I’m not interested in Republican on Republican violence,” he told host Chuck Todd, adding that “bold … brash” Trump “has a colorful way of speaking.”The Texas senator’s...

    WASHINGTON (AP) Hispanic leaders are warning of harm to Republican White House hopes unless the party's presidential contenders do more to condemn Donald Trump, a businessman turned presidential candidate who's refusing to apologize for calling Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers. Trump's comments, delivered in his announcement speech last month, have haunted the GOP for much of the last two weeks and dominated Spanish-language media. It's bad timing for a Republican Party that has invested significantly in Hispanic outreach in recent years, given the surging influence of the minority vote. Yet several Republican candidates have avoided the issue altogether,...

Ted Cruz has inked a blockbuster $1.5 million book deal, agreeing to write a memoir about his brief tenure so far in Washington.HarperCollins agreed to provide the advance after a four-day book auction last week, according to today’s Washington Examiner, a conservative news outlet. That puts Cruz, the tea party darling and Texas freshman, at the top of the list of potential GOP candidates penning books ahead of the 2016 presidential race.And it’s the biggest book advance in years for a conservative, topping even the $1.25 million that former Alaska Gov.

    Boldness comes more naturally to Ted Cruz than compromise. Barely through his first year in the Senate, the Texas Republican bucked his party leaders and became the public face of a government shutdown while standing up for conservative ideals. Rewind three decades back, and you'd find Cruz selling a similar message as a teenager in Houston. You could say Cruz ran with a gang in high school. Their colors were blue jacket, white shirt, red tie. They called themselves the Constitutional Corroborators. And their leader was the head of a conservative think tank named Rolland Storey, who took them around...

    Via Mediaite. “Are they mostly drug dealers and rapists coming across the border?” asks Steve Doocy, referring to the buzziest bit from Trump’s presidential announcement. Well, no, says Cruz. They’re not mostly that. But let’s not miss the forest for the trees. Illegal immigration’s a serious problem and Trump calls it like he sees it. I applaud him for his candor. Remember: This is the same guy who, not long ago, went on Megyn Kelly’s show and wondered aloud whether a natural-born Canadian like Cruz could really be eligible to run for president of the United States. Now here’s...

You pushed back on that pretty hard.”CRUZ: “We were talking about bias in the media; it’s a good example. He asked me initially about gay marriage. I told him I don’t support gay marriage;...

    During an appearance on Fox News’ MediaBuzz on Sunday, Senator Ted Cruz blasted the liberal media for going easy on Hillary Clinton despite the numerous scandals surrounding her.  Speaking to host Howard Kurtz, Cruz accused the media of being “docile” towards Hillary and if “any Republican did what she’s doing right now” the press would be obsessing over it on a daily basis. Kurtz did his best to defend the press and noted how they “investigated her on the e-mail server, on Clinton Foundation, on speaking fees, I would say she's not gotten an easy ride. You might say that...
