  • Senate Republicans Move to Protect the Supreme Court With Constitutional Amendment

    10/22/2020 8:45:59 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 36 replies ^ | October 22, 2020 | Jenny Beth Martin
    Every now and then, a man, a mission, and a moment all come together. Such is now the case with Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who this week introduced, with several cosponsors, S.J.Res. 76, a constitutional amendment to hold the number of justices on the Supreme Court at nine. It’s an axiom of conservatism that “If it is not necessary to change, then it is necessary not to change.” In other words, in more modern language, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But what if it is broke? Or, worse still, what if you know that something working fine...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) sent a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Wednesday, charging that the social media company’s censorship of a New York Post story that alleged Hunter Biden facilitated a meeting between a Ukrainian gas company and former Vice President Joe Biden amounts to an “obvious and transparent attempt” by Twitter to influence the 2020 presidential election. Twitter censored and prevented the distribution of a New York Post article saying that, contrary to Biden’s claims, he allegedly met with an executive at Burisma when he was vice president. Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, reportedly arranged the meeting...

    Senator Ted Cruz commented on the volatility he’s sensing in the upcoming election, saying President Trump could win big or it could be a Republican “bloodbath.” Cruz (R-TX), speaking on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” said the election will hinge on how the American people perceive the economy and handling of the pandemic. “It’s volatile, it’s highly volatile,” he explained. “If people are going back to work, if they’re optimistic, if they’re positive about the future, we could see a fantastic election.” Those ‘fantastic’ results could include “the president getting reelected with a big margin” and “Republicans winning both houses of Congress.”...

    A broad coalition of lawmakers, public interest groups, and grassroots citizens rallied behind Amy Coney Barrett in her first day of hearings today for confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. According to senators on the Judiciary Committee evaluating her nomination, Barrett handled the first day of hearings with grace, humility, and tenacity. “[Barrett] acknowledged the fact that so much of what the Democrats said today was bunk, and she did it with a smile, and she did it without having to use the word jackwagon or anything close to it,” Sen. Mike Lee of Utah said. “She did it by...

    ( - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says he's worried about what may happen on November 3, as Democrats and partisan activists in the media find fault with everything Trump does or says while giving Biden easy questions and positive reviews. "The press is fully all-in, in support of Biden," Cruz told Fox News's Sean Hannity Tuesday night: I'm worried about the election. I think it's really volatile. I think it could go either way. I think we could have a fantastic election, the president could win by a big margin and we could win both houses of Congress, but I...

    SNIP I think the president’s right on this, and unfortunately, I think this is a pattern we’ve seen play out throughout the debates, where the moderators and the debate commission have behaved like arms of the Joe Biden campaign,” Cruz explained. “I think at the first debate … Chris Wallace did a terrible job moderating. Last night, I think Susan Page did a better job moderating. She didn’t interrupt as much but her questions were still, you know, it’s an interesting hypothetical to go back and look at the questions she asked, and ask how would the questions have read...

    Sen. Ted Cruz is accusing CBS News of “media bias” after the Australian version of “60 Minutes” recently featured Tara Reade, the former Senate staffer who accused Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden of sexual assault. Mr. Cruz, Texas Republican, is demanding to know why the interview wasn’t aired in the U.S., where Mr. Biden is running for president. “This is the most complete indictment of media bias ever,” the senator tweeted. “Why does CBS think voters in…Australia need to know about these serious charges against Biden, but not voters in…America (where he’s actually on the ballot)?

Personally speaking, this is the first time in years that I haven’t watched a single game in the NBA Finals. #GoWokeGoBroke” Cuban chimed in to question the logic of Cruz appearing to cheer for the downfall of a major industry in his own state. “A US Senator with 3 @NBA teams in his state, employing thousands of people and he is rooting for their businesses to do poorly,” wrote Cuban in a retweet of Cruz’s...

    "I think it is personal," the Texas senator said about Justice John Roberts' motivation to turn away from the conservative movement with his court decisions........ Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz says Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts "despises Donald Trump," which accounts for a number of the decisions he had made from the top seat on the high court in recent years.

Cruz spoke to Breitbart News as the former Supreme Court litigator released his book, One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History, which details his insight into the Supreme Court and how many of Americans’ most cherished freedoms hang in the balance of the nation’s highest court. He further told Breitbart News that the book would give a “behind the curtain” view of the Supreme Court. He added that...
  • 'Remember when Trump called your wife ugly, Ted?' CNN host Chris Cuomo and Texas Senator Ted Cruz get personal in 20-minute on-air shouting match over the President, the debate, the media and their families

    Daily Mail ^ | 10/01/2020 | JENNIFER SMITH
    Chris Cuomo and Ted Cruz came to blows in a lengthy shouting match on CNN on Wednesday night, the crescendo of which was Cuomo reminding Cruz that Trump once called his wife ugly. The 20-minute argument began when Cuomo asked why Cruz didn't confront Trump over his controversial remarks about Proud Boys, an alt-right group, at Tuesday night's presidential debate. From there, it descended into Cuomo saying Cruz had watched from the side lines, 'stroking his beard like a wise man', while the country suffered from COVID-19. Texas Senator Cruz repeatedly bashed the CNN host's brother, New York Governor Andrew...

  • In CNN Interview, Sen. Ted Cruz Presses Chris Cuomo About His Brother's Dangerous Nursing Home Policy That Killed Thousands of Elderly Covid-19 Patients

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo finally found himself a guest that was willing to press him about his brother's dangerous policies. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) held nothing back in their interview Wednesday night, including how Gov. Andrew Cuomo's nursing home mandate that forced facilities to accept recovering COVID patients left tens of thousands of seniors vulnerable. The state suggests that over 6,000 seniors died from COVID in elder care homes. But because New York doesn't take into account residents who died after being transferred to the hospital, we expect the number to be much higher. On Wednesday, Gov. Cuomo tried...

    Since Trump has vowed to nominate a woman to the Supreme Court, his shortlist of candidates has been reduced to just a few highly female judges. Signs were initially pointing to Amy Coney Barrett, but a new candidate has emerged from the shadows as a front-runner for the coveted nomination: Tedina Cruzette. "I had never heard of this Tedina before," said Trump. "But she is very, very female, which is important, so important. She doesn't have much of a judicial track record, but she seems like a really smart cookie. Loves America. Loves our veterans and law enforcement. And she's...

Senators in both parties acknowledge the level of dysfunction in a chamber where the bulk of their time is spent processing nominations amid failures to break stalemates on pressing national issues such as coronavirus relief and police reform. “I’m praying to God that the better angels start flying with my colleagues.

    A ceremonial resolution honoring the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was pulled after Sen. Ted Cruz objected to language added by the chamber's top Democrat about the liberal icon's dying wish. "All the kind words and lamentations about Justice Ginsburg from the Republican majority will be totally empty if those Republicans ignore her dying wish and instead replace her with someone who will tear down everything she built," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said regarding the resolution. Cruz objected to the inclusion of the wish, arguing that the Constitution states that justices do not get to appoint their...
