Yesterday, Glenn Beck convened a meeting with top Republicans, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), in Washington to discuss innovations in the media. According to Beck, Cruz warned that the government may stifle dissent by placing curbs on the freedoms of speech and the press in the future, putting Beck in the crosshairs. Beck recounted a portion of the event where Cruz described how his father, who left Cuba during the reign of right-wing dictator Fulgencio Batista, was “tortured and held in prison and everything else in Cuba for political dissent.” Cruz claimed that such repressive...

While speaking to Glenn Beck earlier today, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) maintained that UN Ambassador nominee Samantha Power, best known for her human rights advocacy, “grovels” before dictators.

Ted Cruz, the junior senator from Texas, has spent his first few months in office making enemies on both sides of the aisle. Perhaps this is because the Tea Party hero employs a potent mix of of sanctimonious rhetoric and hatchet-job politics that led one of his fellow GOP senators to call him “Jim DeMint without the charm.” His particular brand of smarminess was on display, for instance, when he delivered a condescending, elementary school-level lecture about the Constitution to Sen.

The Family Research Council’s Watchmen on the Wall conference is an annual gathering for pastors and other church leaders to hear from a panoply of right-wing speakers and get motivated to “transform America.” Our coverage of last year’s event highlights speakers’ attacks on evolution, secularism, Islam, LGBT people, and other tools of Satan. This year’s conference, which takes place in Washington DC May 22-24, has been promoted by FRC for months. In April, FRC sent an excited alert that Sen. Ted Cruz, a Tea Party and Religious Right favorite who is... MORE >
