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,

ALERT ALERT!!

BREAKING: White House Makes ANOTHER Move
Supporting Roy Moore … Liberals In PANIC !!

(TeaParty.org) – While the lamestream media has criticized President Donald Trump for his silence on the accusations surrounding Republican candidate Roy Moore, and also claimed that his silence is proof of his disapproval of the senatorial hopeful, insiders in the White House issued a second statement confirming their support.

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Mick Mulvaney on Monday affirmed that the Trump administration’s stance on the issue is that Alabama voters should cast their vote for Judge Moore despite the allegations that he performed sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old in his 30s, the Hill reports.

“I don’t think it’s making any news to think that a Republican administration is going to want someone in the Senate who is going to vote for a Republican agenda and if they elect a Democrat to that office that’s not going to happen,” Mulvaney said during a segment of Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria.”

Previous support for Moore came from the White House when aide Kellyanne Conway told Alabama voters not to vote for the fake “conservative” Democrat Doug Jones, claiming a vote for him “will be a vote against tax cuts” on “Fox & Friends.” She added that the Democrat, despite his self-styled label, is “weak on crime, weak on borders,” all but implying that they should choose Moore instead.

Even the Crooked News Network is waking up and realizing that Trump did not, in fact, fall for their smear campaign against Moore:

“By refusing to intervene ahead of Alabama’s December 12 special election, Trump is rejecting Senate Republican leaders’ view that a Moore victory would bring disastrous consequences for the GOP’s brand and needs to be stopped at all costs.”

Initially when asked, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement that said the administration was holding back any judgement or endorsement, and trusted the people of Alabama to decide on the allegations facing Moore. But it’s become clear – and a relief to Trump-supporters in the state – that the president is going to welcome and support one of the only senators who will actually back his agenda.

Marc Short, legislative director, caving in to the pressure of badgering liberal reporters, suggested that Trump wasn’t campaigning for Moore because of doubts surrounding the candidate’s innocence.

“If he did not believe that the women’s accusations were credible he would be down campaigning for Roy Moore. He has not done that,” Short said. Clearly, Short had no idea what he was talking about at the time.

While the president has yet to officially endorse Moore, during a briefing with reporters on Monday, Sanders issued a new statement that resonated with tones of approval for the Alabama Republican, reports CNBC.

“The president wants people in the House and Senate who support his agenda,” Sanders said. Since there are absolutely no other candidates in the race who support the president’s agenda, this is obviously an endorsement for Moore. Trump wants people in his government who are true Republicans, not Democrats or RINOs, no matter what nasty rumors liberal slimeballs spread about them.
