    U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz told an East Texas crowd the current political climate reminds him of another time in American history - the late 1970s. “We had the same failed economic policies, the same malaise,” he said during a brief campaign stop on Thursday at Smith’s Lone Star Event Center in Tyler. “We had the same failed foreign policies - with the same countries, Russia and Iran.” But the parallels give him hope, Cruz said. “Because we know how that story ends,” he said. “The American people rose up and gave us the Reagan Revolution. … We...

He’s calling it “Un Día Sin Trump,” a word play on the satirical movie A Day Without A Mexican.

Ted Cruz has gone further than most 2016 contenders in promoting “religious liberty,” honoring bakers and florists who’ve refused services to gay couples and denouncing the Supreme Court for “lawlessness” in legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide.

In a Facebook post tonight, he condemned a “war on faith” and said there needs to be a way to work around religious objections to...

    In a bow to the huge U.S. Hispanic population and the Catholic Church's advocacy of immigration, Pope Francis plans to give his Washington Mass Sept. 23 in Spanish, according to Cardinal Donald William Wuerl. "The Mass is going to be in Spanish," Wuerl said Wednesday while previewing the pope's trip to reporters. "It's a recognition of how large the Hispanic population in the United States is," said Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington. "And he's coming as the first pope from the New World and the predominant language in this hemisphere is Spanish," added Wuerl of the Argentine-born pope. Francis, meanwhile, will...

    A police officer in Trinity, Texas, was forced to make an incredibly difficult split-second decision during a tense August 29 traffic stop when a man reached for a gun in the front passenger seat. Officer Randy Wheeler drew his firearm and ordered the suspect to keep his hands up and outside of the car — but it’s an incident that easily could’ve resulted in death or tragedy. Trinity Police Chief Steven Jones said the police department chose to release video of Wheeler’s scary traffic stop from two different angles to prove a major point about the type of split-second decisions...

    The Obama administration confirmed Tuesday that ending the nation’s 40-year-old ban on crude oil exports will not drive up domestic gasoline prices and could even save consumers money at the pump. Tuesday’s report from the Energy Information Administration puts even more pressure on Mr. Obama, who so far has been reluctant to reverse the export ban and allow oil and gas companies to sell fuel abroad. The White House last month did approve limited crude oil sales to Mexico, but critics say the president should go much further and allow the U.S. energy industry — which has revitalized economies across...

    51 percent of immigrant households—both legal and illegal—receive some kind of public assistance, versus just 30 percent of native households. Whether immigrants contribute more to total economic activity or public revenues greater than they receive in benefits is not addressed in this report, and remains a subject of fierce controversy. ... This study is the first in recent years to examine immigrant (legal and illegal) and native welfare use using the Census Bureau’s Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). While its complexity makes it difficult to use, the survey is widely regarded as providing the most accurate picture of...

    So says PPP, the same outfit responsible for that poll a few weeks back showing Trump losing head-to-head match-ups against Rubio and Walker in North Carolina. Either NC is an outlier or the mood has changed nationally because Republicans across America now prefer him to either of those candidates — and not narrowly either. He leads Rubio by eight when voters are forced to choose between them and Walker by 14. As for Jeb Bush, gadzooks:Jeb’s got another month to turn things around before the donor class heads for the lifeboats, I think. There is one candidate tested who...

    On his way to Alaska this afternoon, President Obama called Kathleen Goforth, the widow of the slain Texas Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth who was shot and killed at a gas station while he was fueling a police cruiser. “On behalf of the American people, I offered Mrs. Goforth my condolences and told her that Michelle and I would keep her and her family in our prayers,” Obama said in a statement released this evening. Obama said that he promised Goforth’s widow that he would continue to praise bravery of police officers who served their communities.
