    @LeadingReport BREAKING: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz calls for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to step down. Cruz said when asked if it’s necessary for McConnell to step down as Senate leader, “I think it is.” Other Republican senators have had enough of McConnell as well. Sen. Ron Johnson likewise said McConnell’s strategy was “fatally flawed” when he “entered into this secret negotiation with Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer.” “It normalizes thousands of people a day,” Johnson said of the bill. “It probably undermines the future president’s ability to secure the border by having things like a discretionary threshold.” Sen. Rick Scott...

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz is on track to secure reelection in November against either of his top-polling Democratic rivals, according to a new University of Houston poll. The survey found that, in a straight fight between Cruz and Rep. Colin Allred, the leading Democratic candidate, the Republican incumbent would win by nine points. Alternatively, if Cruz faces Texas State Senator Roland Gutierrez, who is also running to be the Democratic nominee, he would secure victory by 10 points. * * * The University of Houston poll is a substantial improvement for Cruz from an Emerson College survey released earlier this...

    A U.S. Senate committee approved legislation on Wednesday that would help set the stage for the United States to confiscate Russian assets and hand them over to Ukraine for rebuilding after the destruction of the nearly two-year-long war. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 20 to 1 in favor of the unprecedented "Rebuilding Economic Prosperity and Opportunity (REPO) for Ukrainians Act." If it were to pass the full Senate and House of Representatives and be signed into law by President Joe Biden, as expected, the act would pave the way for Washington's first-ever seizure of central bank assets from a...

    Sometimes an unpleasant image or association perfectly suits a career politician and his legacy.On Tuesday — the fourth day of Turning Point USA’s annual AmericaFest event — Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas got some laughs when he told the audience in Phoenix that President Joe Biden’s aides have adopted special traveling precautions.“Listen, we have a president of the United States [whose] team carries extra pairs of pants with him when he travels in case he has poopy pants,” Cruz said in a clip posted to X by conservative commentator Collin Rugg.“Big and stinky if true,” Rugg wrote in an...

    OK I went to his twitter page to see if he's explained his vote on FISA inclusion in the NDAA and not a peep. It's full of interviews etc. of him being against Free Speech on campuses What is he doing? He might not like certain speech but as a Member of Congress it's not up to him to decide. He's losing the plot with all this. John Cornyn is taking heat on the NDAA (rightly). I still haven't heard anything from Cruz. Perhaps someone from TX can find out what the situation is. He can't hide from this forever!

    Then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump railed against “so-called Christians” and “pieces of s—” evangelicals who supported Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in the 2016 Iowa caucuses, according to a forthcoming book. At the time, allies of Cruz had been making hay of Trump’s flub before an audience at Virginia’s Liberty University, a conservative evangelical college, in which he botched a question about his favorite Bible verse and replied that it came from the book of “Two Corinthians,” rather than “Second Corinthians.” “The laughter and ridicule were embarrassing enough for Trump,” Tim Alberta writes in his new book, “The Kingdom, the Power,...

    Democratic Rep. Colin Allred of Texas’ 32nd District, who is running for the Senate against Republican incumbent Ted Cruz in 2024, has partnered with and received donations to his congressional campaigns from a left-wing group that engages in transgender advocacy, according to media reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation. Allred, a three-term Congressman from Dallas who represents a suburb of that city, announced in May that he would challenge Republican Ted Cruz for Texas’ junior Senate seat. Throughout his political career, Allred has been closely affiliated with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a group that has advocated on a...

    Sen. Ted Cruz is pulling the curtain back on three "Iranian spies" who were allegedly working at senior levels within the Biden administration, claiming that one of the Iran "sympathizers" is regularly accessing classified materials while working as a chief of staff in the Department of Defense. SEN. TED CRUZ: Well, and what you just mentioned with Rob Malley remains one of the greatest national security scandals in our nation's history. So, Rob Malley was Joe Biden's chief negotiator for Iran. He's an incredible Iran sympathizer. He is an advocate, a passionate advocate for the disastrous Obama-Iran nuclear deal. But...
  • Ted Cruz Speaks Hard Truths on Hamas' Attack on Israel: 'Paid for By Joe Biden and the Democrats'

    On Saturday, Hamas attacked Israel, making it the bloodiest day in the country's history and resulting in more Jews dead since the end of the Holocaust. Meanwhile, the Biden administration's response was less than ideal in many ways. This is especially with regards to the $6 billion that the United States released to Iran as part of a prisoner exchange, a move that was announced on the anniversary of September 11, no less. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his Monday edition of "The Verdict," was among those calling out the administration for this, but also other, moves. Early on in...

    JPMorgan Chase admitted to pressuring the financial software company Intuit into preventing gun sellers from using the company’s payment processing services, according to a letter Sen. Ted Cruz sent Monday after looking into the policy. Bank of America, meanwhile, denied pressuring Intuit into banning gun manufacturers from using its famous QuickBooks software. “Woke big banks are increasingly weaponizing their power to cut off law-abiding businesses from accessing banking services,” Cruz, R-Texas, told The Daily Signal in an email statement Monday. [snip] Intuit, the financial software company best known for producing QuickBooks, had adopted an acceptable use policy previously listing “guns...

    FACT: ObamaCare was passed, using the original legislative vehicle, at 1:38am on 12/23/09 with 60 votes in the Senate. The House then approved that Senate Bill without changes; and in February 2010 created a secondary bill which created the opportunity for the Senate to modify ObamaCare using “reconciliation” for a lower vote threshold of 51 votes. [Understand the full construct by reading HERE] If you do not understand how legislation is created; if you do not understand the difference between the Senate and House; if you do not understand the way ObamaCare was created, you really need to read this...

    <p>1. ..........Cruz is a fierce ideologue: He denies the existence of man-made climate change, rejects same-sex marriage, wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service, believes the 2nd amendment guarantees everyone a right to guns, doesn’t believe in a constitutional divide between church and state, favors the death penalty, opposes international agreements, embraces a confrontational foreign policy, rejects immigration reform, demands the repeal of “every blessed word of Obamacare,” and takes a strict “originalist” view of the meaning of the Constitution.</p>

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) believes the Democrat Party will “parachute” former First Lady Michelle Obama in to replace President Joe Biden, who will be “jettisoned” out before the 2024 election, arguing that former President Barack Obama is the “puppet master” running the Biden administration. On Monday, Cruz discussed the possibility that Biden will not be the nominee for the Democrat Party in the upcoming election on his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” noting that the odds of such a scenario have “risen significantly” given that Democrats are now “nervous.” He stated: They’re looking at polling numbers that show two-thirds of...

    “This is not satire,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) declared Thursday, in a social media post commenting on a “Babylon Bee” piece mocking the Justice Department’s determination to ignore the growing number of serious scandals involving First Son Hunter Biden. Cruz posted a link to “Relieved Biden Family Celebrates Hunter Only Being Indicted On Gun Charges” ... The satirical piece includes “quotes” from Biden family members and a “source” expressing relief that Hunter wasn’t indicted on more serious charges, such as the contents of his infamous laptop, bribery, sex trafficking, drug dealing, or conspiracy to defraud the United States, treason: ”‘This...

    Just in time for the 2024 election, COVID looks to be making a comeback in the news cycle. With First Lady Jill Biden having tested positive for the virus on Monday night, President Joe Biden is following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), or so we're told. He's often been seen not wearing a mask, and even joking about how he's not. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the Wednesday edition of his podcast, "The Verdict," warned about what he referred to as "the most deadly COVID variant ever seen," which will be "the election variant." Speaking...

    Former and potentially future President Donald Trump is currently facing three indictments and will likely be facing a fourth in the coming weeks. He'll be dealing with the legal process as he's campaigning for president in the primary and if he indeed becomes the nominee. As Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) discussed in his Friday morning edition of his "Verdict" podcast, it's the Democratic Party's game plan to have Trump engaged in multiple trials going on, so that the headlines will constantly be about Trump, distracting the American people from the widespread bad press that President Joe Biden ought to be...

    Sen. Ted Cruz , R-Texas, said Wednesday that former President Trump's indictment was an attempt by Democrats to boost their chances in the 2024 election. “It is not subtle, and it's not complicated. This is straight out election interference by the Biden Department of Justice," Cruz said on the Wednesday episode of his podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz." “My biggest sentiment was that it was thoroughly underwhelming. There's very little there there," he said about contents of the indictment itself. “This is a political indictment, brought by a political prosecutor, working for a political attorney general working for a political...
