    I would expect violent protest, at a minimum, from the Left if there is a second opening and President Trump nominates a true conservative. They simply will not accept a change in the balance of the Court. Sen. Ted Cruz predicted Thursday that President Trump will have the ability to fill a second vacancy on the Supreme Court in 2017, the Washington Examiner reported. “I think we’ll have another Supreme Court vacancy this summer,” Cruz said at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “If that happens, as much as the left is crazy now, they will go full Armageddon meltdown because...

    Appearing at CPAC 2017, Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas (A, 97%) blasted a recent 4th Circuit Court decision upholding a Maryland “assault weapon” ban as “nuts.” Speaking with Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin, the Texas senator discussed a broad range of topics including term limits on members of Congress, the nomination of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and the rogue federal judiciary. Cruz criticized the Fourth Circuit court decision limiting the individual’s Second Amendment right to own a firearm. “The Fourth Circuit used to be the most conservative court in the country,” Cruz said. “The Fourth Circuit now, they’ve invented...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R- Texas (A, 97%) is encouraging the Trump administration to uncover the Obama White House’s secret dealings — as part of the former president’s nuclear agreement — with the Islamic Republic of Iran. “The Iran nuclear deal was a catastrophic failure. I believe it weakened and endangered America, and will only serve to facilitate Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon,” Senator Cruz said at a reporters’ roundtable on the sidelines of the Conservative Political Action Conference Thursday. He added: “Many of the details of that agreement were hidden by the Obama administration because they were indefensible.” {..snip..}

Ted Cruz, R-Texas (A, 97%) called out Obamacare-lite replacement plans at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday. “There are some Senate Republicans who would like to keep the Obamacare taxes because they want to spend money,” the senator said in a closed-door meeting with reporters at CPAC. “That would be exceptionally foolish.” “I don’t think we should replace one 2,000-page monstrosity with another 2,000-page monstrosity,” Cruz said, in discussion of the current struggle to repeal the...

Undoubtedly, that's a crude shorthand for political thinking. It means you never have to check the ideas of the speaker, you merely have to check how people respond to him. That's dangerous. It leads to supporting bad policies and bad men. The enemy of your enemy isn't always your friend. Sometimes he's your enemy. Sometimes he's just a dude sitting there minding his own business...

    The CNN healthcare debate between Senators Ted Cruz & Bernie Sanders on February 7 was dubbed a success by the network, ranking first in its cable time slot. With healthcare once again thrust into the headlines, and with two big personalities squaring off, this was certainly the marquee event, as was advertised. It turned out to be what one would have expected; a clash of ideologies, but a deeper look into what was said, and specifically what wasn’t, turned out to be most revealing. Senator Sanders’ positions contained very little substance as he clung to his talking points which reflected...

Trump has said he will be announcing his choice to fill the late Antonin Scalia's seat on the bench next week. Republicans will need at least eight Democrats to support Trump's nominee to overcome the 60-vote filibuster hurdle. But Cruz suggested the GOP shouldn't rule out the so-called "nuclear option" to reduce the threshold to a majority. The move would be a gamble, setting a precedent that could weaken the GOP's position if Democrats come back into power....

    The first time Donald J. Trump stepped onstage in Pennsylvania in April 2016 at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, it was clear something very different was going on in this state, with this candidate. It was not because the rally was massive, or because it was boisterous, or that it was poorly organized, though all those things were true. Having already attended 18 of his rallies throughout primary states across the country, I found, in fact, that it looked very familiar. It was different because it was in Pennsylvania. It was a campaign that was designed to fail from...

    The wife of Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen was arrested by the FBI on Monday in connection with the mass shooting, officials said. Noor Salman was taken into custody in California, where her family lives, but the case is filed in Florida, where her husband massacred 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in June. "I can confirm the arrest did occur," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on MSNBC. This is a matter that we continue to take very seriously," she said. "We said from the beginning we were going to look at every aspect of this case, every aspect of...

    Ted Cruz was once one of Donald Trump’s most vocal critics. Now he's one of the president-elect's most important Senate allies. Ted Cruz met with Donald Trump exactly one week after Election Day. As it turned out, Cruz’s tete-a-tete with the president-elect he had spurned from the stage of the Republican National Convention just months before wasn’t the most consequential meeting he would have that day. After his talk with Trump, the Texas senator and his chief of staff, David Polyansky, then sat down with his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, who sounded him out about his interest in filling the...

    Senators Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., are set to introduce legislation Thursday to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations until the anti-American organization rescinds its recently passed, vehemently anti-Israel resolution. U.S. contributions to the body’s regular and peacekeeping budgets stand at roughly $3 billion a year — about a quarter of the respective budgets. The senators’ Safeguard Israel Act of 2017 seeks to “prohibit voluntary or assessed contributions to the United Nations until the President certifies to Congress that United Nations Security Resolution 2334 has been repealed,” an advance copy of the draft bill obtained by...

    Texas Senator and former presidential candidate Ted Cruz ripped the mask off an ACLU attorney pretending to be “strictly nonpartisan” on Day 2 of Jeff Session’s confirmation hearings to be the nation’s next attorney general. David Cole, a Georgetown University law professor and national legal director at the ALCU, a communist front group, was trying to desperately smear Jeff Sessions as a racist and Ted Cruz cut him up with a butter knife, asking him why he omitted key facts from his argument that would have invalidated his argument if he were truly “strictly nonpartisan.” {.. snip ..}

    On Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, announced that he has reintroduced two bills, alongside Congressman Michael McCaul R-Texas, and Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Florida, to protect Americans from radical Islamic terrorism. One measure targets the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the other takes aim at the Muslim Brotherhood. “I am proud to reintroduce these bills that would codify needed reforms in America’s war against radical Islamic terrorism,” he said. “This potent threat to our civilization has intensified under the Obama administration due to the willful blindness of politically-correct policies that hamper our safety and security. A grand détente with the...

    During Senator Jeff Sessions’, R-Ala. (C,78%) Attorney General confirmation hearing today in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Ted Cruz, R-Tex. (A, 97%) pointed out numerous Democratic hypocrisies that have been manifested in the past few years and during the hearing. Democrats on the committee, especially Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. (F, 0%) had been grilling Sessions on whether he would uphold abortion laws in the United States if he becomes Attorney General. Senator Patrick Leahy, D, Vt. (F, 6%) interrogated Sessions on LGBT rights, questioning whether Sessions would uphold civil rights laws as Attorney General. But did the Democrats...

    Tucker Carlson and Glenn Beck brawled over his inflammatory rhetoric on Trump, his support of Ted Cruz, what he’s learned from the election, why Clinton lost and why he thinks Trump should be given a chance. The interview starts off with Beck denying he said Cruz was “anointed” by God to be president. Beck said, “I never said he was anointed by God to be president of the United States. I do believe that people are called, all of us are, you’re called for your job, I’m called for my job, all of us are called for a specific time....
