Cruz: 'Do Democrats Understand They Need to Control the House to Impeach?'

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. -- Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told the Conservative Political Action Conference outside D.C. today that "many times" since Jan. 20 he has "raised a glass and toasted Harry Reid."

"Because Harry Reid employed the so-called nuclear option, broke the Senate rules to change the Senate rules, lowered the threshold for confirmation from 60 votes to 51 votes. And it is a direct result of Harry Reid that we now have the most conservative Cabinet in decades," Cruz said. "...Let me on behalf of CPAC thank Harry Reid, thank you for Attorney General Jeff Sessions. And also, we should be thanking Harry Reid for EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. For Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. And very, very soon, I look forward to thanking Harry Reid for Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch."

"Should we thank Keith Ellison, too?" Cruz quipped to applause from the crowd.

Democratic National Committee leadership elections are Saturday, and Cruz dubbed the Minnesota congressman "likely to be the next chairman of the DNC."

"And I'm sure the vast majority of Americans, given his background with Farrakhan, will be very excited about that. Shall we get behind him at CPAC? What do you say?" the senator continued. "Listen, I will commend the Democrats for one thing. If they name Keith Ellison as the head of the DNC, then I'll commend them for truth in advertising."

Cruz panned impeachment talk a month into President Trump's term.

"Impeachment is a constitutional function. Yes, the left keeps talking about impeachment. I mean, they were talking about impeachment before the inauguration," he said. "And, you know, I think impeaching Obama in January probably would have been a mistake."

The sad part of the rhetorical question asked by Cruz is that it illustrates the fact that the House of Representatives is engaged in the representation of political parties rather than the Constitutionally intended people it was purposed for.

Since I do not belong to any party, I therefore have no representation at all.

At least this explains why my phone calls and letters are ignored.  Some comfort that is.

This is WHY it's so important that individuals like Senator Ted Cruz, speak out as often as possible. The corrupt media is not in the business of ever reporting the truth, but are now in the business of creating perception. Their job is to continually sway public opinion to the left. The days of truth in journalism are long dead. They instead try to score points with their fellow leftist colleagues with their clever published hit pieces.

We say, no one in their right minds (DEMs do not fit that category) would vote for a party that is obviously veering to the far left, ....at least not at this juncture. Fortunately, the recent election of Donald Trump has undoubtedly proven out that particular theory. An a HUGE amen to that.

However, that won't mean that he left and their devious mouthpieces are showing any signs of slowing down the pace of their erroneous daily attacks of President Trump. Nope. It doesn't matter the method they employ, like bombarding Town Hall meetings like never before to give the voter population the 'perception' that somehow there are millions of angry voters that LOVE Obamacare - and should be left untouched. Really? HA!

In fact, we're currently witnessing the the doubling down of the Left's (our enemy within) devious efforts to remove the Trump administration. 'Impeachment' is on the lips of these anti-American scoundrels, hoping to sway public opinion. We cannot afford to allow these efforts to succeed. These undermining efforts are even coming from some traitors within the GOP. Need I mention their despicable names?

In 2018, let's make damn sure we keep the HOUSE, and possibly inflict even more damage to the (enemy) DEMs. Let's see if they can force the DEMs to lose many MORE seats. We MUST keep them weak as possible. It is the only way stop them and view their all of lunatic antics as pure pathetic entertainment.

dem brains are too far gone to try to reach them with common sense

Democrats do not do math - social study majors are not required to take American Civics, History, science and math to graduate. So the answer is clearly they do not understand a 2/3 majority in both chambers?

Impeachment in th House is done by a simple majority, which the Dems do not have. Conviction in the senate requires 67 votes

Maybe, Cruz should be deported for his treasonous acts to overthrow the President of the US???? Doesn't CRUZ in Spanish mean Communist?? 

No, it means cross.

What?

Where do you get this info about Cruz planning to overthrow Trump?

The real sad thing is that even if they did impeach the president, he would never be convicted.  It takes the senate to convict him.  Impeachment is simply a trial and the jury is the senate.  So, we have a waste of taxpayer money. . .again.

Does there not have to be a reason? Maybe the Republicans should look at the many treasonous things Barry did and threaten to go after. What do they think we are going to do. just sit back and let them do it?  We may not be as vocal as they are but we can be,

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
