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

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
