  • Beto O’Rourke: Ted Cruz ‘Culpable’ for Capitol Hill ‘Coup Attempt’

    Breitbart ^ | 02/18/2021 | Trent Baker
    Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) on Thursday blamed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the “coup attempt” on Jan. 6 when a group breached the U.S. Capitol in support of former President Donald Trump. O’Rourke told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Cruz is “just as culpable” as Trump for inciting the “sedition” as he contested the 2020 presidential election results. The failed 2020 presidential candidate called on Cruz and others who fought the results to be “expelled” or “forced to resign.”

    My bill would hold officials accountable for failing to protect their constituents. The area radicals took over in Portland last week is the second autonomous zone lawless criminals have set up in the city during the eight weeks of riots since the death of George Floyd. Fringe progressives have also set up autonomous protest zones in six other cities in the past few weeks—in Asheville, N.C.; New York; Philadelphia; Richmond, Va.; Seattle and Washington. These radicals hate the police, reject the rule of law, and are intent on terrorizing their communities. In Seattle, police were forced to abandon the precinct...

    As President Donald Trump suggests the response to the coronavirus may be going too far, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is urging his administration go further. Cruz — who has emerged as one of the most vocal members of Congress on the dangers the virus poses — wants the administration to tell private manufacturers to begin making ventilators, warning the nation could soon face a shortage. “I don't want to see doctors having to make a choice of who gets to live and who has to die because they don't have the equipment to save their lives,” Cruz said on his...

  • Cruz asks for further review of evidence in Rodney Reed case

    CBS ^ | TUE, NOV 12 | Christian Flores
    Amid mounting calls for Rodney Reed's exoneration, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is just the latest in a long line of state leaders, politicians, and celebrities calling on Governor Greg Abbott to take a closer look at evidence, and to at least put a pause on the execution process. Reed is scheduled to be executed November 20, but on Monday, CBS Austin caught up with Cruz at a Veterans Day event in Pflugerville, where he said the state needs to take a harder look at the evidence in the Reed case. "This particular case, there had been meaningful and serious questions...

    Fox News ^ | 11/6/19 | Ted Cruz
    Since January 2017, President Trump has appointed, and the Senate has confirmed,158 life-tenured federal judges, including 20 who today serve in Texas. Taken together, the president’s nominees over the last three years have filled one-quarter of the seats on our nation’s circuit courts of appeals, and two of the nine seats on the U.S. Supreme Court. Few legacies will be longer lasting than this judicial one. These new judges are principled constitutionalists who have demonstrated excellence and professionalism throughout their legal careers. These are judges we can rightly expect will remain faithful to the law. This is good news for...

    GOP Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) criticized President Trump on Thursday for reportedly deciding to renew nuclear waivers for Iran. "This is disappointing and another lost opportunity to tear up the catastrophic Obama-Iran nuclear deal once and for all," the senators said in a joint statement tweeted by Cruz. "President Trump should immediately order his administration to stop issuing civil nuclear waivers."

    Despite scant polling evidence, Joe Biden’s continued lead, and serious concerns over her viability with the broader electorate, Elizabeth Warren’s Democratic presidential campaign has taken on an air of inevitability. Just this fall, the emcee of the financial television circuit, Mad Money’s Jim Cramer, has gone from wailing “She’s got to be stopped” to insisting, “I don’t think she’s nearly as anti-business” as commonly portrayed. Either way, Cramer continues, “I think there is such a thing called Congress.” The implication is even if the prairie populist by way of Massachusetts goes the distance, Wall Street’s network on Capitol Hill would...

    Sen. Ted Cruz slammed LeBron James for “kissing up to Chinese communists and tyrants” — amid the backlash the Lakers superstar faces for his recent comments on Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests, according to a report. “I got to say LeBron James, he’s a hell of a player, but it sure seems his comments were more interested in money and making bucks and I get it, Nike is a big sponsor of his and he makes a whole lot of money, but kissing up to Chinese communists and tyrants and apologizing for murderers, that’s not a good look for the NBA,”...

    A “diehard Houston Rockets fan,” Mr. Cruz said China’s reaction to Rockets general manager Daryl Morey’s tweet last week in support of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong shows “just how powerful the protests are.” “[H]e tweeted a very benign tweet where he said, stand for freedom, stand with Hong Kong. And the Chinese communist government, they just about lost it,” Mr. Cruz said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in an interview from Hong Kong. The NBA has sought to repair relations with China after the government-controlled Chinese broadcaster announced a boycott of Rockets games while Chinese commercial sponsors cancelled their...

    On Sunday’s broadcast of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said it was not appropriate for President Donald Trump to ask China to investigate 2020 presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden regarding his business ties. Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: So China’s a- a surveillance state. Is it appropriate for President Trump to be saying– CRUZ: Yeah. BRENNAN: –China should look into the Biden family? Is that appropriate? CRUZ: I- look, of course not. Elections in the U.S. should be decided by- by Americans and it’s not the business of- of foreign...

    President Donald Trump's staunchest allies voiced outrage Monday after he suddenly declared that U.S. troops would allow Turkey to attack Syrian Kurds who have fought as U.S. allies for years to tamp down the Islamic State. The president later threatened to destroy the economy of Turkey, a NATO member, if it goes too far against the Kurds. But that did little to mollify concerns overseas or in Congress after Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw troops and get them out of the way of Turkish forces. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said it would be "disgraceful if we sat...

    en. Ted Cruz sounds ready to run for president again – in 2024. Speaking to The Monitor after a breakfast session with reporters, the Texas Republican didn’t hesitate when asked if he would take another crack at the White House. “Look, I hope to run again,” said Senator Cruz, who was the runner-up last time to Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. “We came very, very close in 2016. And it’s the most fun I’ve ever had in my life.”

    While U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz expressed unhappiness Saturday with some of Donald Trump's comments related to the president's call with Ukraine's leader, the Texas Republican emphatically pushed back against the Democratic movement to impeach the commander in chief. Cruz said that he had read both the recently released whistleblower complaint and the readout of Trump's July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, both of which characterize Trump as soliciting the Ukrainian government's assistance in investigating unsubstantiated allegations against the business activities of former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. "I expected it to be" worse than it was,...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) weighed in Thursday on the Republican Senate primary in New Hampshire, endorsing a candidate other than President Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who Trump has said would make “a great senator.” Cruz threw his support behind former New Hampshire House speaker Bill O’Brien on a call into a Boston-based radio show, saying he is “a principled conservative” who “knows how to produce results.” “Bill O’Brien has backbone. He is willing to stand up and do the right thing,” Cruz told conservative host Jeff Kuhner on WRKO AM 680. “I think he would make a phenomenal...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) isn’t taking another presidential run off the table — at least for 2024. The Republican lawmaker — who dropped his 2016 presidential bid after trying to win over voters against now-President Donald Trump in the Republican primary — is open to a future presidential run. In hopes of becoming the Republican nominee in 2016, Cruz fell short, as his support among voters declined in comparison to those backing then-front-runner Trump. A Gallup poll conducted in late April of 2016 shows Cruz at a 45% unfavorability rating among Republican voters, jumping from an unfavorability rating in the...
