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

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
