  • Secure the Border to Protect American Interests (Ted Cruz's OpEd)

    Conservative Review ^ | November 20th, 2015 | Ted Cruz
    Last week I introduced a bold immigration plan to secure the border, restore the rule of law, and reform legal immigration in a way that protects Americans. My plan safeguards Americans’ jobs and fortifies our national security. Just hours after I announced the plan, the need to secure the border became all the more evident as ISIS coordinated multiple, gruesome attacks on Paris and Beirut.I have stood with millions of Americans who understand the dangers of a porous national border, the foolhardiness of President Obama’s amnesty, and the lunacy of accepting tens of thousands of Syrian refugees. Americans see the...

    On Ted Cruz’s Senate office wall hangs a framed copy of one of the Texas Republican’s proudest legislative accomplishments. And like the outsider persona he touts on the presidential campaign trail, Cruz eventually voted against the bill that made it happen.Cruz added an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act last year in the Armed Services committee that ultimately awarded the Purple Heart to victims of the 2009 massacre at the Fort Hood military facility in Texas. Thirteen people were killed and more than 30 injured.Cruz had offered the amendment every year since arriving in the Senate in 2013, uniting with fellow Republican Sen....

    Just 30 minutes ahead of the fourth GOP presidential primary debate in Milwaukee, Senator Ted Cruz dropped a plan over at National Review to eliminate five major federal government agencies."We will sharply reduce the alphabet soup of government entities, beginning with the ABCs that should not exist in the first place: The Agencies, Bureaus, Commissions, and other programs that are constitutionally illegitimate and harmful to American households and businesses. It's time to return to a federal government that abides by our constitutional framework and strips power from unelected bureaucrats," Cruz writes. First Cruz proposes the elimination of the IRS, which...

    Watch the video at the link. Senator Ted Cruz said tonight that if illegal immigrants were bankers or lawyers or taking jobs in America's newsrooms, "we would see stories about the economic calamity that is befalling our nation." Here's his full answer on immigration: What was said was right, the Democrats are laughing because if Republicans join Democrats as the party of amnesty, we will lose. And you know, I understand that when the mainstream media covers immigration, it doesn't often see it as an economic issue. But I can tell you for millions of Americans at home, watching this,...

    When he ran for Senate from Texas in 2012, Ted Cruz welcomed the comparisons on Captitol Hill and in the news media to Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, another 41 year old Cuban American and oratorically gifted conservative who, two years earlier, had ridden a wave of Tea Party support to victory over his states Republican establishment. But Mr. Cruz also sought a more direct connection to Mr. Rubio, making several pilgrimages to his Washington office for advice, as well as an endorsement, according to people who were members of Mr. Rubios staff at the time.

    The super PACs backing Cruz’s presidential run have yet to reserve any TV time in the early primary states – or anywhere else – despite a combined $38 million warchest that ranks second only to Jeb Bush’s $103 million operation. The total absence of ads has created confusion and growing consternation inside the Cruz campaign, which cannot legally communicate with its allied super PACs and has had to watch as their rivals lock in tens of millions of dollars in ads before prices spike, as they typically do as elections near. “I assume they’re waiting so their media buyers make...

    Washington Post ^ | 10/29/2015 | By Philip Bump
    The Republican Party's relationship with the media reached an inevitable new stage during the debate on Wednesday night. Thanks in part to CNBC's clumsy handling of the event and in part to the long-term and increasing rejection of traditional media on the right, presidential candidates were able to skate past legitimate critiques by claiming bias — with the audience enthusiastically cheering them on. Three moments in particular were worth picking out. Most obvious was Ted Cruz's have-you-no-shame upbraiding of the questions asked by the network's moderators. Asked about his opposition to the budget deal being finalized in Washington this week,...

    In one moment, Senator Ted Cruz managed to do what no other candidate for the Republican nomination for president has done to this point: unite Republicans. He did so by pushing back against the ridiculously biased questions presented by CNBC moderators. The Hollywood Reporter transcribes: “The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” said the U.S. senator from Texas, instantly earning applause.“This is not a cage match,” he continued. “Look at the questions. ‘Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain;’ ‘Ben Carson, can you do math;’ ‘John...

    At long last, George W. Bush, the man who left the Republican Party in tatters as he left the White House, has some coattails. His loose lips at a recent fundraiser last week about fellow Texan Ted Cruz have given the GOP presidential hopeful an invaluable shot of gravitas. And that’s saying something considering how Bush’s own brother, Jeb, has been running away from his family legacy by changing his surname to ‘exclamation point.’ But who wouldn’t rather declare punctuation as kin rather than a former claimant to the White House in this populist uprising disguised as an election?

    The FOX national poll also asked the first/second choice question, but did not provide direct tabs of the share of Trump backers who chose Cruz, et al, as their second choice. It did, however, do the next best thing: it gave the entire GOP race standings if Trump were out. Trump polled 26 percent in the overall standings and Cruz polled 8 percent. Without Trump, Cruz rose to 11 percent, a three point gain. Three divided by 26 is about 11 1/2 percent, nearly identical to the thirteen percent from the other two polls. This might seem to be too...

    Polarizing is a descriptive term used by a pontificating media to disparage various elements they find antithetical to their own worldview. Generally, when the term is used it is wrongly assigned. However, in the case of Ted Cruz its unfortunately accurate. When Jason Johnson sits down to discuss his pathway to the nomination with George Will, it says more about Jason Johnson than it does about those who read Wills opinion of the aforementioned pathway. What it essentially says is theres a need to affirm something that isnt factually supported by any measure of quantifiable empirical evidence. Ted Cruz Value...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz brought his no-compromise message to the RedState Gathering on Saturday, thrilling hundreds of hardened conservatives who flocked to Atlanta with a pledge to reject “mealy-mouthed statements about acceptance and surrender.”Cruz received one ovation after another for his crowd-pleasing promises to repeal President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul, “rip up and rescind” the proposed nuclear deal with Iran and shower Israel with support.He vilified Hillary Clinton and other Democrats, but reserved some of his harshest attacks for fellow Republicans who have struck compromises across the aisle.“What exactly has this new Republican majority accomplished? Nothing? It’s actually worse...

    So much for what Fox News thinks of the two leaders in the Breitbart Primary. Its pretty clear that Fox has an agenda, and that is to destroy Donald Trump while ignoring Sen. Ted Cruz . On the first count, they failed miserably while they certainly managed to pull off the second one. For now. In spite of Foxs efforts that were so blatant that even Bloomberg noticed Trump survived Thursdays debate. And while some may say he slipped just a little, its clear he still has the momentum and a big lead. The attempt was so...

    I like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% a lot as a Senator, but I have never been a huge fan of his candidacy for President – at least until now. Generally speaking, I prefer governors to Senators, and I have an especial wariness for first term Senators. Additionally, I have questions about Cruz’s ability as a coalition builder and I know that he is a polarizing figure, even within the conservative movement.However, episode three billion in the GOP Failure Theater tour, this time featuring Planned Parenthood failure theater, has pushed me into the camp that makes me want, more than...

    According to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is essentially financing terrorism. And he’s not backing down after the president called his comments “outrageous.”“If this deal is consummated, it will make the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism,” Cruz said during a round table Tuesday. “Billions of dollars under control of this administration will flow into the hands of jihadists who will use that money to murder Americans, to murder Israelis, to murder Europeans.”Cruz has said the remarks before.On Monday, Obama responded to criticism of the deal. He also addressed Cruz’s...

    Conservative political pundit Charles Krauthammer said Monday that Sen. Ted Cruz(R-Texas) is guilty of rather amazing hypocrisy for blasting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, but failing to go after fellow Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump. The syndicated-columnist contended that because Cruz hopes to gain Trump supporters when the real-estate mogul drops out of the race, he wont criticize him. Krauthammer said that left him guilty of hypocrisy....

    Senator Ted Cruz has drawn both praise and scorn for comments made last Friday on the Senate floor. According to the Texas Tribune, Cruz upset some by calling Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar. I have listened to the comments of my colleague, the junior senator from Texas, both last week and this week, and I would have to say that he is mistaken, Cornyn said. At issue: Cruz on Friday accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a Cornyn ally of telling a flat-out lie to Senate Republicans over movement of legislation related to an obscure, controversial...
