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

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
