    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz told Megyn Kelly tonight that the Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples should be released from jail. U.S. District Judge David Bunning told Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis she would be jailed until she complied with his order to issue the licenses. Cruz said that this is outrageous, fundamentally wrong and he unequivocally stands with Davis. "We are a nation that was formed by people fleeing religious oppression and coming to seek a land where we could worship free of the government getting in the way," Cruz said. "It is...

    WASHINGTON Sen. Ted Cruz has gone further than most 2016 contenders in promoting religious liberty, honoring bakers and florists whove refused services to gay couples and denouncing the Supreme Court for lawlessness in legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. But when it comes to the Kentucky county clerk who is defying a federal court order by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Cruz has struck a more measured tone than many of his rivals. In a Facebook post tonight, he condemned a war on faith and said there needs to be a way to work around religious objections to...

    Rand Paul said he supports a county clerk from his home state for standing her ground against granting marriage licenses for same-sex couples, saying there should be room "for people to exercise their religious beliefs and not be told they have to do something they find morally objectionable." "I have never been opposed to contracts between consenting adults," Paul told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" co-host Bill Hemmer.

    The Obama administration confirmed Tuesday that ending the nations 40-year-old ban on crude oil exports will not drive up domestic gasoline prices and could even save consumers money at the pump. Tuesdays report from the Energy Information Administration puts even more pressure on Mr. Obama, who so far has been reluctant to reverse the export ban and allow oil and gas companies to sell fuel abroad. The White House last month did approve limited crude oil sales to Mexico, but critics say the president should go much further and allow the U.S. energy industry which has revitalized economies across...

    Birth-control pioneer Margaret Sanger embraced some truly horrific ideas. But she also did quite a lot of good. Senator Ted Cruz has become the first GOP presidential candidate to formally sign on to the efforts by a group of black pastors to get a bust of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger removed from an exhibit at the Smithsonians National Portrait Gallery. The participants, who held a press conference Thursday, claim that Sangers appearance in the exhibit, called, Struggle for Justice, is offensive, because it places the reproductive rights trailblazer in a position of honor alongside such icons as Dr. Martin...

    Neither Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings nor officials from General Electric would confirm on Friday reports that General Electric Co. had decided against relocating its global headquarters to the city because of Texas politicians opposition to the Export-Import Bank. Republicans Rep. Jeb Hensarling and Sen. Ted Cruz have each been outspoken in their opposition to the Ex-Im Bank, a federal agency that offers loans, loan guarantees and credit insurance to help U.S. firms sell their products overseas. Hensarlings opposition to the bank has grown from a small movement two years ago to a full-scale rebellion, dismaying the banks supporters among major...

  • Anchors Away: Ridiculous to believe that the 14th Amendment was intended for children of illegals

    Bin Laden 2016 raises the question: Does birthright citizenship, regardless of parentage, qualify one to become president of the United States? Now that I have your attention, lets consider a logical consequence of the current policy of the U.S. government, granting birthright citizenship to a child born in the United States of illegal immigrants, otherwise known as an anchor baby. Section I of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. At...

    Report: John Boehner Shocks at Fundraiser by What He Calls Ted Cruz: I About Fell on the Floor Aug. 27, 2015 Speaker John Boehner shocked attendees of a Colorado fundraiser Wednesday night by referring to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as a jacka**, two people at the event told The Daily Caller. The Ohio Republican, who has come under fire from hard-line conservatives within his party, said he was happy Cruz was campaigning for president because it keeps the jacka** out of Washington, The Daily Caller reported. I dont think its terribly speaker-like, and I think it kind of goes against...

    The Bloomberg/Des Moines Register survey released on Saturday finds that the two are tied in Iowa caucus-goer support when voters first and second choices for the Republican coronation are combined. Each is the first or second choice of 32 percent of respondents. Trump won the poll overall, getting 23 percent support. Carson comes in second at 18 percent. The next-closest competitors are Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at 8 percent each. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are tied for fifth place with 6 percent support each. After them is Carly Fiorina...

    Former Gov. Jim Gilmore, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, on Friday challenged GOP front-runner Donald Trump to a mano a mano debate on birthright citizenship. Gilmore has criticized Trumps plan to overturn the birthright citizenship provision of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It guarantees citizenship to babies born in the U.S., even if their parents are in the U.S. illegally. Donald Trump is wrong on this issue and on his views of the 14th Amendment, Gilmore said in a statement. I challenge Donald Trump to debate mano a mano on this issue. His comments are irresponsible,...

    Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie on Saturday compared tracking illegal immigrants in the United States to locating FedEx packages, even pledging to ask the company's founder and CEO to temporarily work with his administration to show immigration officials how to do it effectively. The comments, at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire, caused an uproar on social media, Mediate and CNN reports. "At any moment, FedEx can tell you where that package is," the New Jersey governor said. "It's on the truck. It's at the station. It's on the airplane. It's back in another station. It's back at the...
