Ted Cruz: “Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan”

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz slammed Senate Democrats on Wednesday for attacking attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions. “The charges she was making against Jeff Sessions are demonstrably false, they’re slanderous, they’re ugly,” Cruz said in an interview with Fox News referring to comments made by his colleague Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). The Massachusetts Senator was reprimanded and

Trump Will Starve the Leftist Beast

Mytheos Holt, Donald Trump, in his first press conference since being elected president, savaged a number of worthy targets. Blasting the increasingly Gawker-esque tabloid click farm known as BuzzFeed, and summarily dismissing CNN as fake news, were moments that rightly deserve the cheers of conservatives (and, for that matter, intellectually honest people) everywhere. Further, Trump’s

The Elite in this Country have held Sway Over American’s Lives for Far too Many Decades

D.W. Wilber, Amidst this highly charged and contentious political climate in America, where the nation is polarized and seemingly incapable of agreeing on anything, there’s one thing I think that everyone will agree on: We are witnessing a presidential political campaign unlike anything in our nation’s 200-plus years of history. The recent debate at Washington

You, Too, Could Vote for Donald Trump

Debra J. Saunders, The political press corps has known Bob Stern as the straight-arrow president of Los Angeles’ Center for Governmental Studies who helped Jerry Brown create the Fair Political Practices Commission in 1974. Since the center closed its L.A. offices in 2011, Stern seems to have developed a devious side — or was it

Jack Welch on why he’s voting for Trump

Jack Welch, the former GE chief and longtime Republican supporter, told CNBC on Tuesday he’s voting for Donald Trump because he likes the real estate mogul’s policies on tax reform, government regulations and national security more than those of Hillary Clinton. Welch was late to the Trump camp, first supporting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who

Candidates who don’t back Trump may not be allowed to run again, RNC chairman says

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Sunday suggested he could say “never mind” to the “Never Trump” candidates should they try to make another run for the presidency. Priebus said the former primary challengers who’ve refused to support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump could face consequences if they fail to back Trump in the

Hundreds gather in Columbus for Ohio Tea Party for Trump

Tom Zawistowski wasn’t a Donald Trump supporter before Ohio’s primary election earlier this year. The head of the Portage County Tea Party backed Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Other Tea Party leaders around the state were behind retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson or Sen. Marco Rubio. But Trump is the Republican nominee, and Zawistowski and others

Trump Needs to Quit being So Self-Destructive

Karl Rove, Last month’s Republican and Democratic national conventions showed that both parties are deeply split internally over ideology and personalities. Not only that, but their presidential nominees remain highly unpopular. The GOP gathering in Cleveland was poorly produced and featured the presidential primary’s runner-up, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, in a prime-time appearance pointedly refusing

Trump Supporters: America Deserves Better Than Hillary

Straining to shore up Republican unity, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will urge conservatives to shed their unease about Donald Trump Wednesday night as he makes his national convention debut as the businessman’s running mate. But much of the attention is on Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a favorite of the right who has yet to endorse

Texas governor burned in accident; could miss GOP convention

Republican Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas sustained “extensive second- and third-degree burns” on both legs below the knees and both feet — and may miss next week’s Republican National Convention as a result, his office said Sunday. Spokesman Matt Hirsch said Abbott was with his family in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on Thursday when he was

Trump Forces Didn’t Just Beat the Establishment, They Overran It

Donald Trump didn’t just outlast a long list of Republican challengers to be the last man standing for the presidential nomination. He won by remaking the Republican Primary electorate itself. About 25.7 million people have voted in the 2016 Republican primaries and caucuses so far. That’s about seven million more votes than were cast in
