During Ebola Scare, Ted Cruz Rejects Obama’s Surgeon General Nominee For Being ‘Anti-Gun’

For several years now, it’s become abundantly clear that the Republican Party is being, shall we say, puppeteered by the National Rifle Association. The heat of a thousand suns has been hurled at the GOP’s relationship to the Koch Brothers, but the NRA seems to wield greater influence over the party, managing to convince Republican [...]

On CNN, host Candy Crowley on Sunday interviewed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and asked about how the sequester hurt funding for the Centers for Disease Control and how the National Rifle Association’s opposition to President Obama’s nominee for surgeon general, Dr. Vivek Murthy, also hurt the response to the Ebola virus. Republicans in the Senate [...]

As we are only three weeks (plus change) from the mid-term elections, once again we take a look at the news, and following Bill Moyers’ advice, we let the facts lead us to a conclusion: Politics in the USA is the world’s most embarrassing reality show. We begin our tour with a quick look at [...]

Because the Supreme Court remanded decisions on gay marriage back to the states, refusing to hear cases on the issue, Ted Cruz would like a constitutional amendment allowing states to ban gay marriage. Never mind that letting states decide for themselves, without federal intervention, is what Cruz and many conservatives claim to stand for. The [...]

Ted Cruz: Statesman

Texas’ Canadian-born Latino and immigrant-bashing Senator Ted Cruz has taken to the mighty pages of his MyFace page  to proclaim that he is (not yet) definitely not (yet) declaring himself a candidate in 2016. At least not yet. Contrary to media reports this morning, Heidi and I have not made any decisions about political plans past the [...]

In a Facebook post, Senator Ted Cruz says whoever is spreading word that he is almost sure to run for president “doesn’t know what they’re talking about.” Contrary to media reports this morning, Heidi and I have not made any decisions about political plans past the mid-term elections. Clearly we have an overzealous supporter out [...]

Ted Cruz is readying a foreign policy speech that will be the centerpiece of a campaign he plans to announce by the end of the year. “At this point it’s 90/10 he’s in,” one Cruz adviser said. “And honestly, 90 is lowballing it.” The senator’s choreography since arriving in Washington has long pointed to a [...]

Values Voters Choose Cruz

Texas Senator Ted Cruz won the straw poll for president at the Value Voters Summit with 25% of the vote. The victory is a big victory to the Republican firebrand and Tea Party icon, coming just a day after he drew standing ovations with a religious and emotional speech that blasted ObamaCare, congressional Democrats and [...]

Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) told the Washington Post that Sen. Ted Cruz deliberately made “outrageous and incendiary” remarks during a speech in front of Arab Christians, which got the Texas Republican booed offstage. “It was a willful and deliberate confrontation, and very self-serving,” Dent said. Mediaite reports: During his remarks at the conference held by In [...]

Ted Cruz Booed Off Stage

The Texas senator was speaking at conference for Middle Eastern Christians when he was booed off stage. Cruz, the keynote speaker at the sold-out D.C. dinner gala for the recently-founded non-profit In Defense of Christians, began by saying that “tonight, we are all united in defense of Christians. Tonight, we are all united in defense [...]
