Indivisible HoustonBoard Member Benjamin Hernandez challenged Ted Cruz to support background checks and other measures during a break in dinner at Uptown Sushi on Westheimer. “He needs to be held accountable,” said Hernandez.
“For him to attend the NRA Convention today after the murder of 19 kids and two teachers in Uvalde three days ago, and the murder of ten people just for being Black ten days ago in Buffalo, and to keep blocking gun reform measures, is embarrassing and tragic. It has been long been time for basic, common-sense gun reform measures in this country. This can’t keep happening. Shame on Ted Cruz.”
Someone heckled Ted Cruz while he was eating at a restaurant last night
*CALL TO ACTION – EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN WHO SUPPORTS GUN CONTROL SHOULD CONFRONT EVERY GOP (+ Joe Manchin and Kristin Sinema) N PUBLIC JUST LIKE THIS. IT IS YOUR DUTY IF YOU REALLY CARE ABOUT THE LIVES OF YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR OWN.
In the wake of the Texas elementary school shooting, where 19 kids and 2 adults were killed, there is renewed scrutiny on the hundreds of thousands of dollars Republican lawmakers have received in campaign contributions from groups supporting gun rights. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) received the most money from gun rights supporters. On Tuesday, he received major backlash for responding to the shooting by saying that gun control will not help and that “we need to devote far more law enforcement resources to stopping violent criminals.” Reality check: Experts say that there is a lack of evidence that suggests that increased police presence in schools actually improves safety and instead could “significantly disrupt learning environments.”
According to the AXIOS’ chart above Cruz clocks in at an estimated $442,000.00 in gun rights donations but further investigation by this website shows that Cruz in 2018 alone raked in over $311,150.00 from the NRA, other PACs and individual gun rights backers giving more than $200. So in reality the actual amount is much, much higher when tallied.
Last month, Republican Senators. Marco Rubio of Florida, Mike Lee of Utah, Mike Braun of Indiana, and Josh Hawley of Missouri, wrote to Jeff Bezos demanding an explanation of why When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment was no longer for sale on Amazon. In a response seen by TheWall Street Journal, Amazon exec Brian Huseman wrote: “We have chosen not to sell books that frame LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness.” The senators haven’t commented on the response, but whined in their initial letter that book’s removal was a message “to conservative Americans that their views are not welcome on its platforms.”
Rubio, Hawley, and Cruz. The usual anti-LGBT insurrectionist suspects.
Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor claimed at a Tuesday concert in Texas that he told Republican Sen. Ted Cruz to “f— off” after he asked to be put on the guest list for the show.
In video captured from the group’s concert in Dallas, Reznor can first be seen asking the crowd: “Who voted for Ted Cruz? See, the lights aren’t on, I can’t see. Is there any way to turn the lights on? I’d like to see.”
“He might be here tonight. He was bugging to get on the guest list, and I told him to f— off,” said Reznor. Reznor claimed the group placed Cruz on their guest list several years ago, but alleged that “he drank all the beer, and was just a pain in the ass to be around.”
One week after 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a killing rampage at his former high school in Parkland, Florida with his legally purchased AR-15 rifle, the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) CEO and Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre will speak at the American Conservative Union’s CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference). The NRA is a “presenting sponsor” of CPAC 2018.
Other speakers include Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and Senator Ted Cruz, among other Republican politicians who receive donations from the NRA. The CPAC will take place February 21-24 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center at National Harbor, Maryland. All four men spoke at CPAC last year.
Also speaking will be anti-LGBT French fascist Marion Le Pen who will appear on the main stage immediately after Mike Pence. Marion’s grandfather, Jean-Marie Le Pen, the founder of the National Front, is perhaps Europe’s most notorious living fascist, having been convicted multiple times for inciting racial hatred and denying the Holocaust.
Republican Texas Senator and maniac, Ted Cruz who caused America to “shut down” costing the country billions of dollars 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 Faux Fox News referring to comments made by his colleague Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
Warren was reprimanded and prevented from speaking on Tuesday evening after she began reading a 1986 letter from Coretta Scott King which was written in opposition to a judgeship that Sessions was under consideration for in that year.
Later that evening, Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer objected to the usage of that rule, calling it “selective enforcement” while also referring to an 2015 incident where Cruz asserted that McConnell had told a “flat-out lie.”
“When the left doesn’t have any other arguments they go and accuse everyone of being a racist,” Cruz declared, “it is an ugly part of the modern Democratic party.”
Cruz continued his “spin” pointing out ancient history from 65 years ago.
“I’ll point out the Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan. You look at the most racist, the Dixiecrats they were Democrats who imposed segregation, who imposed Jim Crow laws who founded the Klan. The clan was founded by a great many Democrats. Now the Democrats accuse anyone they disagree with of being a racist.”
So far in the closet she’s in the backyard Ms. Lindsey Graham the GOP’s southern belle from South Carolina has some interesting and KAPO-like opinions on who Donald Trump should appoint to the Supreme Court.
Sen. Lindsey Graham made a stop Friday in the Upstate. Graham attended the Veterans Day ceremony at Greenville Memorial Hospital and spoke with WYFF News 4’s Patrick Hussion about the open seat on the Supreme Court. He said President-elect Donald Trump should nominate Sen. Ted Cruz for the seat.
“I’m here to tell my Democratic colleagues that I voted for Obama’s nominees. I expect them to give Trump’s nominees a fair shake. He won this election. He will pick a conservative. I would put Ted Cruz on that list,”Graham told Hussion. The senator feels that Trump should look within the Senate when deciding on a Supreme Court nominee.
“There are some really strong people in there. And there is no stronger constitutional conservative than Ted Cruz,” Graham said. Graham warned Senate Democrats. “If they try to block this pick, they will regret it. If you don’t honor Trump’s nominee, you’re making a huge mistake,” Graham said.
Before the election Lindsey-belle Graham wanted fellow Republicans who endorsed Donald Trump to reverse their endorsements after Trump said that Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s heritage make him unfit to preside over lawsuits against him. saying “This (Trump’s statement) is the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy,”
