Texas Sen. Ted Cruz met with President-elect Trump late Tuesday afternoon. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File)Texas Sen. Ted Cruz met with President-elect Trump late Tuesday afternoon, hours after the incoming Republican president convened a meeting of his top transition staffers to review key appointments he will need to make before his inauguration in mid-January.


"Sen. Cruz is pleased to have the opportunity to meet with President-elect Trump in New York today," Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said in a statement.


The Texas senator is not involved in Trump's transition operation, though Frazier said he is eager to assist the next administration with its goals of repealing Obamacare and pursuing "cost-effective, patient-centered health care reform," appointing conservative justices to the Supreme Court, enforcing immigration laws and passing legislation "that will create more good-paying jobs for the American people."


"On behalf of the 27 million Texans he represents, the senator looks forward to assisting the Trump administration in achieving these objectives," she said.

 Cruz was a disappointment, but I understand very few know the Constitution and the Supreme Court the way he does.  An asset any president can use.

The two that I can think of is Rand Paul and Judge Andrew Napolitano.  Actually, the Judge would be good on the Supreme Court.

Like I said, very few.

I also Trust Judge Napolitano . And Judge Pirro !! 

I liked Ted Cruz and backed him! But he showed me his true face at the Convention So I will always think of him as a RINO!! For a smart man That was not his Best Day!

What I want to know how did the Democrats turn Cruz in to a Useful Idiot? Or did he do it on his own?  

IMHO; Cruz has more than enough hubris to do it all on his own. But it also fits into the Left's narrative that all citizens of the United States at birth are Art. II §I Cl. 5 natural born citizens.

If Teddy is so knowledgeable on the intent of the Founders when they wrote the Constitution, why did he IGNORE them and run for POTUS since he was NOT eligible according to Article II?  Surely a "brilliant" constitutional lawyer like him MUST know the intent of the Founders?

No, Ted is NOT a good candidate for the SCOTUS as he violated Article II  by running for POTUS as did Ovomit and little Marco, all of whom are ineligible for identical reasons namely they are NOT natural born citizens as per the intent of the Founders.

Then there is the pesky fact that Ted's wife Heidi is a New World Order global elitist and member of CFR. WHile there she co-wrote a paper on dissolving our national sovereignty so they could form their precious north america union.  Heidi is therefore a TRAITOR and Ted knows it meaning he is GUILTY of Misprision of Treason by the law which he claims to know so well.

For doubters about Heidi's role in CFR and on the paper she supported, read this: https://themarshallreport.wordpress.com/2016/01/17/cruz-the-king-of...

Ted Cruz needs to head the house in Paul Ryan's place and work with the president. We need someone to take the senate. We need Gowdy as AG. We need the muslims out and the mosques torn down. Tare the mosques down and whoever objects cast out of the country. Our enemies are here, brought in by 0bama. We need to rid ourselves of the National Education Association and its grip on our children. Go back to reading the Bible and prayer in schools and any opening of governmental activity from national to state and the pledge of allegiance be respected. We need to put the ten commandments in every courthouse in the nation whether framed or in granit. We need to arrest all members of CAIR and ACLU then put them out of the country. We need to have a national week of prayer three times a year. We need the ending of abortions and have young mothers home to raise their kids and not work until they are of age. We need to mandate that they spare not the rod nor spoil the child. 

WE NEED A GOD CENTERED NATION WHO WELCOMES THOSE WHO ARE READY TO JOIN US IN THIS KIND OF NATION... WHO AGREE WITH THESE PRINCIPLES. All others are not invited.

Like Trump who said that he has never asked God for forgiveness because he's "never needed to"? God centered like that?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Cruz is a Senator - NOT a Representative; therefore, he isn't in a position to challenge ANYONE in the House, let alone Speaker Ryan.  We'll need a REAL Conservative Congressman/woman to undertake THAT important task!

President Elect Trump should make amends with Sen. Cruz and appoint him to the Supreme Court. You talk about uniting True Conservatives, this is a sure way of doing that. That would also take away much of the divide in the Senate and allow TX to appoint another Republican conservative in his place. 

Very few or any body knows the Constitution like Sen. Cruz and he would make a great Justice. 

Speaking of appointing conservative justices to the Supreme Court, I think I have found just the justice: Alabama Supreme Court Associate Justice Tom Parker 

Surely if Obama can appoint such partisan justices as Sotomayor and Kagan, Trump can do the same?

ALERT ALERT

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
