    As Matthew Continetti remarked on Twitter, whoever handles Team Cruz' campaign ads deserves a raise - assuming this comes directly from the campaign, as MSNBC reported today. While Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders argued over the record of Henry Kissinger and the foreign policy of the Nixon administration, the Cruz campaign launched a pitch-perfect shot at Hillary in this Office Space spoof. Rather than destroying a printer, however, "Hillary" and two aides destroy an e-mail server while the soundtrack raps out, "Damn, it feels good to be a Clinton": ...

    Weekly Standard ^ | February 12, 2016 | JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
    Among the two candidates whose results look at all like those of an eventual GOP presidential nominee, polling suggests that Ted Cruz would do significantly better than Donald Trump in the general election. According to the Real Clear Politics average of recent polls, Cruz would fare 5 points better versus Hillary Clinton than Trump would. Polling has consistently shown Cruz to have an advantage over Trump in this regard: Fox News found that Cruz would fare 4 points better than Trump, beating Clinton by 7 points (50 to 43 percent) to Trump's 3 (47 to 44 percent).

    There are quite a few rumors floating around in social media about Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz. Americans are used to the mainstream media lying about Ted Cruz (see here, here & here for just some examples.) But it is particularly painful when the lies come from supposed truth-tellers. The largest culprits starting and perpetuating anti-Cruz falsehoods are sundance of the Conservative Treehouse and Dianne Marshall of the Marshall Report. They blatantly lie, or tell cherry-picked half truths, which are promptly disseminated in social media by an army of bullies who are seemingly not interested in civil debate. Why create false...

Ted Cruz is the best bet for returning Ronald Reagan's principles to the White House.The controversial radio host said on "The Rush Limbaugh Show" Wednesday that no other Republican presidential candidates have come this close to Reagan in terms of articulated, implementable conservatism."If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz, because you are exactly right: This is the closest in our lifetimes we have ever been to Ronald Reagan," Limbaugh said.

    U.S. Sen.

The newly expanded Texas Leadership Team also includes 57 chairs and co-chairs covering Texas' 36 congressional districts, as well as 462 chairs and co-chairs across the state's 254 counties.

Those who were there for the journey spoke to Eyewitness News. Much has been made about Cruz having been born in Canada. Four years later, he and his family moved to Houston and like many young boys, Ted Cruz could be mischievous and playful. At Clay Road Baptist Church, his first church home in Houston, he was sometimes a prankster. "He would get down and rummage around underneath the seats. In fact...

Oil prices have fallen to 12 year lows, and the industry is undergoing its largest downturn since the 1990's. Meanwhile, investment bank forecasts continue to become more bearish. According to the latest data released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, gross domestic product in Oklahoma declined 2.4 percent in the second quarter, ranking last among U.S. states. Prompted by depressed oil prices, these numbers were a stark reversal of the 6.5 percentage growth that occurred during the first quarter....

The Republican primary campaign has effectively turned into a two man race at this point, with Marco Rubio a fairly distant 3rd place with 14% of the vote, just short of the 15% threshold required for delegate allocation. Other than Trump, Cruz, and Rubio, everyone else received a little under 20% of the total support, with 6% still undecided.

    Two people were killed in suspected road rage shootings on a western Oklahoma interstate overnight after police say a man drove through three counties firing randomly from his pickup truck. The suspected gunman in the hour-long rampage spanning 50 miles and three counties later surrendered and was being held in a county jail. He has not been named as of Thursday morning. Custer County Sheriff Bruce Peoples said reports came shortly before midnight of a man firing at vehicles on Interstate 40 in Canadian County, which is adjacent to Oklahoma City. The suspect apparently continued driving west on the highway,...

    Members of an audience waiting to hear from Hillary Clinton in Oklahoma Friday audibly groaned when it was revealed the Democratic presidential candidate would be late for the event. "I want to give you a brief update on a delay with Secretary Clinton's arrival time," announced an apologetic emcee. "It's going to be a little bit closer to 2 [p.m.], but I know you can make it and stay here." The crowd erupted in groans. "Unavoidable," the emcee protested. Watch the video below: VIDEO

    The women were teenagers and grandmothers. Most were living on the margins. All of them were black. And during a month-long trial that became a symbol of police predation, they formed a bleak parade of 13 witnesses who accused a former Oklahoma City officer of using his badge to coerce sex acts and rape. On Thursday, after 45 hours of deliberation, a jury convicted Daniel Holtzclaw, 28, on five counts of rape and 13 other counts of sexual assault, including six of sexual battery. The convictions included four for first-degree rape, which carries a possible sentence of life in prison....

    In June 2014, police officer Daniel Holtzclaw drove a 17-year-old girl to her mother’s house, prosecutors say. At the time, Holtzclaw was on duty for the Oklahoma City Police Department, according to the Oklahoman. The teen later testified in court that Holtzclaw inappropriately touched her after they arrived at the home.
