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.

Washington Examiner on THIS post, is surely trying to bend OUR mines to the left!!

politics requires a very thick skin and a lot of humility

And so does Marriage....  Work....  Life in general.  

Politicians SHOULD have humility, but for many years now...we haven't seen much of that.

Image result for politicians should be humble

POLITICIANS have forgot they are elected to represent the American People's WILL....!! NOT pet projects or to LINE their own pockets....!!

 

Every liar has followers, yep, that's politics.

Let's see, Trump accused Ted's father of being part of the Kenney assassination plot (lie), accused Ted of having affairs (lie), mocked Cruz's history of supporting our Constituiton, etc.  I still can't get anyone to tell me what Cruz lied about. 

Ted Cruz Lies SIX Times in Under Four Minutes!

https://youtu.be/zwIHJhtTSLg

cruz lies about everything to get his way, do your own research! ...may be the most "gifted" liar ever to run for president!

lol And how many times has Trump lied in one sentence?  

That video isn't even worth watching.  I looked at the first part of it, and Cruz didn't lie, but whomever put the video together did.  In the interview that they showed with Trump...the first one after the play of Cruz, if they had put the rest of the interview there, Trump said that o'care needs to be replaced and when specifically asked if it should be with a single payer health care plan, Trump said "Yes".  

At the end of the clip, he says that you'll be able to go out and buy your health plan.  How can you do that with SINGLE PAYER healthcare?  You can't.  So, who's lying?? 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPJfKdp3bDs#t=45

Cruz hasn't lied.  Your video lied.  Trump has lied and slandered and sued his way to where he is.  If you can't be honest with anything else, at least be honest with yourself. 

Tad, under D. Trump the gov't will cover health only for "welfare" reasons, more jobs less "welfare", get it?! ...we are not talking about the same welfare as the welfare enumerated in The Declaration of Independence! ...did you even comprehend the video you yourself referenced?!

Can't teach an old dog new tricks ...Again, do your own research!

Trump didn't accuse him of being part of a plot to assassinate Kennedy.  He did say he was acquainted with his father, and there are photos that indicate that.  Heidi Cruz accused Fiorna of having an affair with her husband.  And several have already explained how he has NOT supported our Constitution.  

BTW you need to follow the rules of this site, one of those is NO TROLLING:

2. No Trolls

Can you tell US who was in the Photography with Oswald In New Orleans?

From what I've read It was Ted Cruz's dad!!

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
