    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) blasted 2016 rival Donald Trump on Monday, questioning his ties to Democrats and previous support for liberal positions as the two battle for the top spot in Iowa."If he's giving checks to Democratic politicians and he supports their views... then it starts to suggest, 'gosh if he publicly supports their views if he finances their causes,'" Cruz told Boston radio station WRKO. "Then suddenly when he announces as a candidate for president, every single one of his views changes - listen if he has had a change of heart, I am thrilled." Cruz, who is competing...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Saturday was briefly trapped in an elevator before giving a speech at the South Carolina Tea Party Convention. The Texas senator quipped after he was released that GOP rival Donald Trump was to blame. "All right, so who put Donald Trump in charge of the elevator?" he said to reporters gathered outside of the elevator.

    TPM ^ | January 11, 2016 | Caitlin Cruz
    Real estate mogul Donald Trump maintained a slight lead in Iowa in a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday afternoon, with rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) trailing him by just 2 points among likely Republican caucusgoers. Trump polled at 31 percent to Cruz's 29 percent. That's a 3-point jump for Trump and a 2-point jump for Cruz since the last Quinnipiac poll in December. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) rose by a point to take third place at 15 percent. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, once a darling of Iowa's crucial evangelical voting bloc, polled at 7 percent. That's a 3-point decline since...
  • Cruz rules out 'deportation force' to boot undocumented immigrants

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz does not plan to authorize a special force to deport the undocumented immigrants currently in the country, he told CNN's Jake Tapper, setting up a policy contrast with Donald Trump. Cruz, who over the past few weeks has specifically endorsed deportations after months of resisting, said in an interview that aired Sunday on "State of the Union" that the U.S. should catch those who came here illegally under normal law enforcement practices, not through round-ups of the estimated 11 million undocumented people living in the U.S. "No, I don't intend to send jackboots to knock on...

    Given that crime is a pretty important issue with the voting public, I set out this week to compare the law and order platforms of our three main federal parties. Justice is probably one of the few issues in this campaign people actually care about. So it would be useful to drill down and see what each party is proposing specifically to crack down on repeat, violent criminals who are released into the community through our revolving door justice system. Trouble is, when I looked up the law and order platforms of the three parties, I discovered two of them...

    Canada: We'll search your iPod for infringing media Thu May 29, 2008 11:39AM EDT Big Brother is alive and kicking in the Great White North. According to The Vancouver Sun, the Canadian government is preparing to revamp its copyright laws in regard to portable electronics, including laptops and iPods, as it forges an alliance with the U.S. and the European Union called the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA). ACTA would essentially turn international borders into a copyright Gestapo, compelling border guards to check "laptops, iPods and even cellular phones for content that 'infringes' on copyright laws, such as ripped CDs and...

    On President Bush's 60th birthday, he met wtih Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the White House and held a joint press conference with him. They discussed a range of bilateral and global issues, and areas with opportunities to deepen bilateral ties and advance a shared global agenda. (With Harper's election, and now an apparent victory for the conservative, Harvard-educated candidate for president in Mexico, things appear to be looking up for North America's political climate.) He also received Iraq's Ambassador to the US, Zalmay Khalilzad, and the 2006 March of Dimes National Ambassador, five-year-old Alexa Ostolaza. Secretary of State...

    He is found at the very, very end, these days, with little fanfare or triumphalism. If you blinked, in fact, you'd miss Him. But He is there, just the same, and -- to some people in the news media -- it is a very big deal, indeed. God, that is. At the conclusion of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's March 28 speech to the Conservative Party's national caucus, and his March 13 speech to our troops in Afghanistan, God is acknowledged, and His assistance is sought. "God bless Canada," said the Prime Minister on both of those occasions. And Mr. Harper...

    The prime minister of Canada had to reassure his nation this week that the woman he has chosen to act as the pinnacle symbol of Canadian unity does not in fact favor breaking up the country. Whether she had at one time espoused this, he did not say. He could nevertheless unreservedly declare to Canadians that now that she has been offered the job of governor general of Canada (with a household and travel budget that runs around $20 million a year) she finds herself – in her own words – "proud to be Canadian" with "the greatest respect for...

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - A Canadian member of Parliament charged with improving ties with the United States apologized on Thursday for saying "let's embarrass the hell out of the Americans in front of other countries." The gaffe by Marlene Jennings came exactly two weeks after Canada's Liberal government irritated Washington by refusing to join the U.S. missile defense system. Jennings -- the parliamentary secretary for Canada-U.S. relations -- reports directly to Prime Minister Paul Martin, who came to power in December 2003 saying he wanted better relations with Washington. "I would apologize to the members in this House that my comments...
