    Sen. Ted Cruz improperly accounted for Goldman Sachs loans he acquired during his 2012 Senate campaign, the Federal Election Commission ruled on Thursday. In a unanimous vote, FEC commissioners decided that the nearly $1.1 million in loans made to the to the campaign by Goldman Sachs and Citigroup should have been disclosed to voters and the American public. The final report from the FEC is expected in 30 days, and further action, such as penalty for Cruz, will be decided, should the FEC decide to initiate an “enforcement action” at a later date. But Cruz’s office said this is “old...

    Former GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz once went on “The Late Show” and asked Stephen Colbert if he could “humanize” him. Colbert was explaining to an audience at New York mag’s Vulture Festival on Saturday that audiences can “smell a prepared answer” from a politician. “I don’t want to betray my guest because there’s what happens on-camera and off-camera, but I guess it’s okay because I don’t think [Ted Cruz] understood what he was asking,” the 53-year-old host said.

    In testimony on May 8, 2017 before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, former deputy attorney general Sally Yates briefly discussed an issue that is part of the ongoing litigation over President Donald Trump's Executive Order No. 13769 of January 27, 2017 and Executive Order 13780 of March 6, 2017 limiting entry of refugees from some of the countries that are openly hostile to the United States and/or are incapable of helping us adequately vet the refugees. (Section 1[i] of the latter executive order revoked the earlier executive order.) In her discussion about the issue with Senator Ted...

    Mitch McConnell has put the Senate Obamacare Repeal and Replace Bill in the leadership of Ted Cruz. McConnell has appointed a GOP Working Group led by Cruz to write a Repeal and Replace Bill. This process bypasses the Senate Committees. This new Senate Bill will go directly to the Senate floor for a vote.

    On Monday, in a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) exposed former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’s ignorance of the law, and the partisan nature of her decision to refuse to enforce President Donald Trump’s executive order suspending travel from several terror-prone countries. One would not know that from the liberal media, which thinks Yates won the exchange, but Cruz proved his case decisively. Here’s why — in short: Cruz brought up the law that authorized the executive order, and Yates did not recognize it. She then answered by referring to another law, which does not...

    This budget does not fund the wall, but it funds planned parenthood and sanctuary cities. We're told it will get dealt with in October. Oh Really? why not now? Also—Where is the appeal on the travel ban? Gorsuch is in place. So what is the hold up? Same with the sanctuary cities ruling. Where is the appeal? No wall, no travel ban, sanctuary cities fully funded, and planned parenthood funded as well. I’m pretty sure that’s NOT what we voted for. Where is Trump the fighter? Where did he go?

    President Trump will stick with the same list of potential nominees for the next Supreme Court vacancy, he told The Washington Times in an exclusive interview in which he also waved aside the lack of a honeymoon from Capitol Hill, saying Republicans are “going to get there” and Democrats are still smarting over losing an election they thought they couldn’t lose. .. He also said he expects the near-universal opposition to his agenda from congressional Democrats to wane. “I notice it calming down,” he said. Reflecting on his first weeks, the businessman turned statesman took pride in having upended traditional...

Elizabeth Warren.(VIDEO-AT-LINK) "I have a feeling that in the next election you're going to be swamped with candidates," Trump told the crowd. "You'll have plenty of those Democrats coming over and you'll say 'No sir. No ma'am, perhaps ma'am. It may be Pocahontas, remember that. And she is not big for the NRA that I can tell you."

    The administration of US President Donald Trump is considering a range of military actions against North Korea, says Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz made the remarks on Wednesday night, after attending a "long and detailed" private meeting at the White House, where all 100 members of the Senate were invited to discuss tensions with North Korea. "The military is obviously planning for a number of options, as they should - minimal military action to more significant action," said Cruz, who ran a failed presidential campaign against Trump last year.

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill calling for the use of $14 billion seized from cartel drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to be used to pay for the President’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. “Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border,” Senator Cruz stated, according to a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas from the senator’s office. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.”

    While the chattering class was lamenting the delay on ObamaCare repeal and replace and promised tax reform, they ignored perhaps the most importance consequence of President Trump’s election, a major accomplishment in his first 100 days, the transformation of the Supreme Court into a conservative and constitutional bastion of freedom. The appointment and confirmation of Judge Neil  Gorsuch has already borne fruit as he cast the deciding vote allowing the execution of multiple Arkansas death row inmates to proceed. As Bloomberg Politics reported: Justice Neil Gorsuch took his first major action on the U.S. Supreme Court by casting the deciding...

    In fairness to Trump, he heard that directly from China’s president (or so he says). What was he supposed to do, be skeptical of Chinese nationalist propaganda?If you can’t trust Xi Jinping to shoot straight with you about a western-allied country within China’s sphere of influence, who can you trust? In an interview with the Wall Street Journal last week, Trump said Xi told him during a recent summit that “Korea actually used to be a part of China.” The comments sparked outrage in Seoul and became an issue in South Korea’s presidential race, prompting the foreign ministry to...

    The New Criterion ^ | April 2017 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Leftists deride the “bad” populism of angry and misdirected grievances lodged clumsily against educated and enlightened “elites,” often by the unsophisticated and the undereducated. Bad populism is fueled by ethnic, religious, or racial chauvinism, and typified by a purportedly “dark” tradition from Huey Long and Father Coughlin to George Wallace and Ross Perot. Such retrograde populism to the liberal mind is to be contrasted with a “good” progressive populism of early-twentieth-century and liberal Minnesota or Wisconsin—solidarity through unions, redistributionist taxes, cooperatives, granges, and credit unions to protect against banks and corporations—now kept alive by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

In an interview with NBC 5 reporter Julie Fine, he explained the problem with pursuing regime change in Syria without a clear strategy or end game. "We are trapped between impossible options. On one hand, Bashar al-Assad is a monster. He has repeatedly used chemical weapons against his own citizens, against innocent men women and children. He is a bad, bad guy,” Cruz said.

    One of President Trump’s campaign promises was to build a wall along the border of the United States and Mexico to help curb illegal immigration and cartel violence and drugs which have been plaguing our country for years. The wall is set to kick off in the San Diego border community of Otay Mesa, U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed Monday according to the San Diego Union Tribune. Although the construction is beginning with prototypes, there are documents revealing that wall construction will start in San Diego, CA.
