Sen Ted Cruz for President

Smearing Ted Cruz as an isolationist is absurd

Philip Klein, The Washington Examiner

Tarring Cruz as an "isolationist" obscures a very real divide within the conservative foreign policy community that has always existed, but that has become more apparent during the Obama era, as Republicans grapple with the lessons of the Iraq War and new challenges emerge.

Cruz: Garland Police Helped Terrorists 'Meet Their Virgins'

NewsMax

As he does at many of his campaign stops, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz used humor at a conservative rally in South Carolina to help make the pitch that he's the most consistent conservative in the Republican race for president. “We saw the ugly face of radical Islam in Garland, Texas,” Cruz said, referring to the incident in which two gunmen opened fire near the Curtis Culwell Center before being shot and killed by police. "Thankfully, one police officer helped those terrorists meet their virgins,"

Ted Cruz to Newsmax: GOP Will Lose With 'Establishment Candidate'

Sean Piccoli, NewsMax

Republicans will lose the 2016 presidential election if they nominate an "establishment" GOP candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz told Newsmax TV on Wednesday. In a candid and wide-ranging interview at Newsmax headquarters, Cruz predicted that a candidate in the mold of a Mitt Romney, John McCain, or Bob Dole will nearly guarantee that Democrat Hillary Clinton wins the White House.

The Next President Must Reclaim The Constitution For We The People

Reclaiming the Constitution for We the People is the one area where political Left and Right intersect in a way that will attract a significant, perhaps decisive, segment of the 2016 electorate. The establishment candidates of the Republican and Democratic Parties, Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton, are not talking about reclaiming the Constitution because they are fully invested in the extra-constitutional policies that are threatening our liberties; the surveillance state, a dominant and unaccountable federal executive and Congress’ abandonment of its constitutional responsibility to check the executive through the power of the purse.

Five myths about Ted Cruz

Ross Ramsey, Special to The Washington Post

The executive editor of the Texas Tribune says in a remarkably short period, Ted Cruz has become a national figure — one who is often misunderstood. Here are five myths about Ted Cruz explained.

Cruz starts with words of action about the Constitution

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, Esq., The American Thinker

In the year that the Magna Carta turns 800, Senator Ted Cruz began his bid for the presidency with an appropriately active, as opposed to passive, choice of words that “[i]t is a time to reclaim the Constitution of the United States.” The term “reclaim” used by Ted Cruz in referring to the action needed on the Constitution is not the same as “restore,” the latter suggesting a subtler approach to returning America to the rule of law. His choice of words instead suggests taking back what has been lost or is otherwise wrongfully possessed by someone other than the rightful owner, like good citizens taking back the streets from an unsavory element.

Yes, Ted Cruz Is A ‘Natural Born Citizen’

“Natural born Citizen” is a legal term of art that Congress has defined in a way that rendered Cruz eligible to be President long before the present controversy over his birthplace erupted. Where Ted Cruz was born, or like Shakespeare's Macduff, how he was born, is of little legal consequence to the question of whether or not he is a “natural born Citizen.” We urge conservatives to support or oppose Ted Cruz for his policies and record and not to be distracted by the spurious argument over whether or not the geographical location of his birth renders him ineligible to run for President.

Ted Cruz Announces – Jeb Bush Goes Silent, Or Does He?

It is easy for today’s generation of conservative commentators to forget or to simply not be aware of the long history various Fox News personalities have with the Bush political operation, and especially the ties between the Bush family and Fox News Boss Roger Ailes.

Cruz described as ‘first top tier’ conservative since Reagan

Jennifer Harper, The Washington Times

Viguerie says that the lawmaker-turned-presidential hopeful unites “the old Reagan coalition” - national defense conservatives, economic conservatives and social conservatives - with the constitutional conservatives of the Tea Party movement. He also feels that Mr. Cruz has “an almost spiritual bond with America’s country class” living their lives far beyond the Beltway.

The Establishment Will Try to Destroy Ted Cruz

Todd Starnes, Fox Nation

The senator's biggest opposition will come not from Democrats, but from Establishment Republicans. I'm talking about you, Karl Rove and John McCain. Establishment Republicans loathe evangelical Christians. That's the cold hard truth. They want our votes, not our values. But there's another cold hard truth for Karl Rove and John McCain to consider: They may not like us, but they can't win without us.

Is Cruz "too conservative" to run for president?

Dan Balz, The Washington Post

Announcing his candidacy for the Republican nomination Monday at Liberty University, the first-term senator from Texas offered himself as the pure essence of conservatism and challenged the tea party and evangelical wings of the Republican Party to rise up behind one of their own and take control of the party and the country.

3 Reasons Ted Cruz Could Win

Ben Domenech, The Federalist

Ted Cruz matches up with the activist base better than any other significant candidate in a long time. I don’t think people outside of that base really understand how powerful Cruz’s appeal is to the populist energized conservative voter, which is of course just a faction of the right, but is a sizable faction. Cruz’s critics need to hope that he is limited to this faction, and incapable of appealing outside of it. 

Texoma Tea Party group hopes Cruz announcement re-energizes supporters

Meredith Yeomans, KTEN TV

"He is reaching out in a way that no other republican has done," Kaaren Teuber said. Teuber is the coordinator of the Texoma Patriots, a self-described grass roots organization that promotes conservative issues and candidates, like Cruz. "He believes in the principles that I believe in and that our Tea Party believes in. He wants to see that our borders are secure, he wants to repeal every word of Obamacare," she said.
