Exclusive — Ted Cruz Caves to Democrat Amy Klobuchar on Media Cartel Bill
Breitbart ^ | Sept. 21, 2022 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 09/22/2022 1:14:35 AM PDT by Boomer

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has caved to the Democrats on legislation that would allow media organizations to create formal cartels to negotiate with Big Tech companies, several congressional aides and others familiar with the process told Breitbart News on Wednesday.

If Cruz goes forward with his plans to back—and allow the senate to advance—the legislation, then he will immediately become one of the biggest enablers of the establishment media and Big Tech giants and he could seriously jeopardize his political future.

I don't think he would politically survive this. He would be on par with what Manchin did with the horrible green new deal that has ended his career at the end of his current term.

What a shame. I thought Cruz was better than this. I wonder what they threatened him with or blackmailed him with.

Not only Ted Cruz will lose and Manchin will lose whenever his name comes up for reelection.

I never like Manchin in the first place.

Re: "...legislation that would allow media organizations to create formal cartels to negotiate with Big Tech companies..."

I have no idea what that means.

Until I read the exact legislation, I will withhold judgment.

Could be fake news...

“several congressional aides? and others familiar? with the process? told?”

“If? Cruz goes forward with his? plans to back”

“Cruz himself has not replied to inquiries from Breitbart News sent over text directly to the senator. Several Cruz staffers have refused to answer whether he cut a deal with Klobuchar, and they have refused to make the senator available for an interview to explain himself....”

Well, it may be late at night/too early in the morning.

I always wondered about Cruz’ wife being CFR.

I remember hearing during the 2016 primaries how Cruz was just another flavor of Bu$h or Romney. Now it’s looking like those Cruz skeptics were correct!

Once it was revealed that Cruz was in the pocket of Goldman Sachs, I knew he was a turncoat.

He has shown it a few times and this legislation reveals Cruz as a swamp creature.

With Santis’ popularity soaring, and some other mistakes Cruz has made which have made him anathema to the Trump wing, I have to think he’s giving up on being President. Now he’s just going to feather his nest into retirement. Damn shame; I thought he would have made a supreme Supreme Court Justice.

Heidi Cruz was a member of the CFR, worked on the Canada/US/Mexico North American Union committee.

https://republicbroadcasting.org/news/meet-heidi-cruz-teds-new-world-order-wife/
If that unlikeable, pompous, ghoul Ted Cruz isn’t enough to make your skin crawl; wait until you meet his busy-body “high-powered” Globalist wife, Heidi Nelson Cruz. We say “Globalist” because not only was Mrs. Cruz a member of the notorious Council on Foreign Relations, but she also served as one of the 31 task force members that the CFR assigned to produce the infamous “Building a North American Community” report. (here)

Heidi Cruz conveeeeniently resigned (“did not renew membership”) from the subversive CFR in 2011, just in time for Ted’s Senate campaign in which he once publicly denounced the CFR as “a pernicious nest of snakes that is working to undermine our sovereignty.” Evidently, Harvard Heidi must not have known that it was a snake nest when she originally joined the CFR. (rolling eyes)

Lady MacBeth Goldman-Sachs-Cruz likes to pass herself off as the loyal Christian American girl next door. The Anti-New York Times ain’t buying it, sweetie.
In the 2007 bestselling book “The Late Great USA: The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada,” Robert Pastor (CFR), who served as co-chairman of the committee which Hedi served on, was dubbed “the father of the North American Union” for the influence the CFR report had on the summit meeting between the heads of state of the U.S., Mexico and Canada. That meeting culminated in President George W. Bush declaring the formation of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.

Canuck Ted exposed himself log ago when he joined McConnell in stopping a solid conservative in a Mississippi Senate race & supporting an old leftwing RINO with Mitch.

Canuck Ted exposed himself as a despicable human being in 2016.

Canuck Ted, born in Canada, never had papers filed to become a US citizen. Perhaps BOTH parents were naturalized Canadian citizens as been reported.

Canuck Ted is just another lying snake-in-the-grass...and another traitor exposed by Trump.

What an astonishing concept!

Congratulations to you two, so far you have offered the only rational replies on this thread. Everybody else cannot think beyond orange man good.
