    GOTNEWS ^ | DEC 8, 2016
    Texas Senator Ted Cruz is set to be nominated for a position on the Supreme Court by President-elect Donald J. Trump if current trends hold, a source close to the process tells GotNews. The source told GotNews that “a deal” is being cut which would see Cruz nominated to the Supreme Court on the condition that a pro-Trump Republican could be found to replace Ted Cruz in the Senate. It is unclear whether Cruz would be immediately nominated to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, who died earlier this year, or if his nomination would come later. While Cruz was not on...

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel met with President-elect Donald Trump in New York on Wednesday morning, using the discussion to urge Trump to reconsider his positions on immigration. During his 45-minute meeting with the president-elect in his personal office high above Manhattan in Trump Tower, Emanuel hand-delivered a letter from the mayors of some of the nation's largest cities urging Trump to continue protections offered to young immigrants instituted under President Barack Obama's administration. The two-page letter asked Trump to continue Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the provision that protects young, so-called Dreamers who came to the country before the age...

    Apple's primary assembly partner, Foxconn, will soon invest in expanding its U.S. operations, the latter company said on Wednesday, apparently following in the steps of a similar SoftBank announcement. "While the scope of the potential investment has not been determined, we will announce the details of any plans following the completion of direct discussions between our leadership and the relevant U.S. officials," Foxconn explained in a statement to Bloomberg. "Those plans would be made based on mutually-agreed terms." Although Foxconn didn't provide specifics, a document held up by SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son after meeting with U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump allegedly...

    Trudeau is a disgusting piece of work and his statement of the death of his beloved friend Fidel merely enforced that No matter what your political stripe is, occasionally you find your country’s leader, to use the vernacular “step in it.” Certainly Americans who are not on the far left can identify with that during the last eight years of the Obama administration.

A lot of Canadians feel that way after hearing what their prime...

The encouragement, which was relayed to The Texas Tribune by two Republican sources familiar with the correspondence, came around the same time that McCaul, an Austin Republican, emerged as a top potential challenger to Cruz's re-election efforts, amid an outcry among many grassroots conservatives over Cruz's decision not to endorse presidential nominee Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention.

Kennedy. His public declaration against the GOP nominee drew immediate attention and the tweet was mysteriously deleted later Sunday. Cruz appeared to be linking to a...

A Ted Cruz aide confirmed the talk to ABC News, and a source gave similar intel to CNN. BuzzFeed News reported that the Cruz camp said there's "nothing to share right now." Trump earned a hard-fought endorsement from Cruz about two weeks ago. The Texas senator said the Supreme Court and other policy issues superseded his own personal disagreements with Trump. In the wake of leaked audio of Trump's lewd comments about women, Cruz tweeted Friday that the remarks were "disturbing and inappropriate."

The Republican presidential nominee asked those attending a Wednesday afternoon rally in Council Bluffs to raise their hands "if you're not a Christian conservative." He noticed "a couple people" raising their hands. He asked the crowd, "Should we keep them in the room?" He answered himself, "Yes, I think so." Many Iowa Republicans are Christian conservatives.

    The Texas senator’s decision to not endorse the GOP nominee is looking pretty good right now. WASHINGTON Immediately after Sen. Ted Cruz walked offstage at the GOP convention in Cleveland last month without endorsing Donald Trump, the Texas conservative and former presidential primary rival appeared to have made a grave miscalculation. (snip) But after a week of Trump repeatedly setting himself on fire (declining even to wait for the previous fire to go out), politicians who endorsed Trump, such as House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), have found themselves feeling the heat, while Cruz’s decision is starting to look like the...

    WASHINGTON - All the Republicans in the Texas congressional delegation have signed a letter being sent to President Barack Obama on Friday alleging that the administration has held back some $400 million that they say could be available immediately to fight the Zika virus. The letter, obtained by the Houston Chronicle, expresses the lawmakers' "serious concern" over money to fight the mosquito-borne illness, which is expected to have a significant impact on Houston and much of Texas' Gulf Coast amid a rash of hot summer weather and flooding. The letter comes amid partisan sniping over Congress' failure to pass a...

    JANESVILLE, Wisconsin — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a former GOP presidential candidate who won this state over current GOP nominee Donald Trump back during the primaries, is not backing House Speaker Paul Ryan’s re-election during his primary against Republican businessman Paul Nehlen at this point. Cruz’s team, over the course of several emails on Friday, told Breitbart News the Senator would not at this time back Ryan for re-election to the U.S. Congress. It’s worth noting, though, that according to Cruz’s team Ryan has not asked Cruz for his endorsement. Cruz also refused to endorse Donald Trump for president, despite...

    Let’s first discuss the obvious. How can CTH predict, weeks in advance, what Fox News Polling will present to their audience? Common sense would tell you it should be impossible to predict weeks and months in advance. After all, polls should be entirely random, based on current events. d9d51-mouse-mission-impossibleIf media polling was truly scientific, and not manipulated by the corporate media entities producing them, we couldn’t accurately predict. But they’re not, and we can. Actually, the entire reason we deliver these predictions to you is because there’s no other good or reasonable way to show people they are being “gaslighted”...

    Suddenly, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, isn’t acting like a shoo-in for re-election. After his prime-time non-endorsement of GOP nominee Donald Trump at the Cleveland convention caused a firestorm, Cruz became the target of a lot of speculation. Already Democrats such as former State Sen. Wendy Davis, formerly of Fort Worth, and U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro of San Antonio are talking about throwing their hats in the ring for U.S. Senate in 2018. As soon as Castro said in a joint CBS News’ interview with his brother, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro, that he was “going to...

    Republicans, No More: Sir Thomas wouldn't fit in today's GOP by Daniel Clark During his speech at the Republican National Convention, Sen. Ted Cruz congratulated Donald Trump for winning the nomination, supported Trump's idea of building a border wall, agreed with Trump's most recently stated position on Middle Eastern refugees, and thoroughly denounced Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton. It was more than enough to fulfill his pledge to "support" (not formally endorse) his party's nominee. Nevertheless, his fellow Republicans roundly castigated him as some kind of traitor. Cruz's most fervent detractor has been none other than that unimpeachable authority on political...
