Ted Cruz, Naming Names and Protecting the Republic
Ted Cruz, Naming Names and Protecting the Republic
From its beginning, Texas has been known for being the home of people willing to stand up for what they believe in. Stephen F. Austin, Lorenzo de Zavala, Davey Crockett and Jim Bowie, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and so many others. Senator Ted Cruz is cementing his name among those historical figures as he stands tall, calling out the duplicity of the Biden Administration and doing what he can to protect our Republic. At a time when we need someone willing to stand up for our Constitutional rights, Cruz steps up and answers the call.
During an interview with Michael Berry yesterday, Cruz admitted he’d been glad to hear Biden all for unity during his inauguration speech. As the senator said, “This [the division in our country] is not good for America. There is more that unites us than divides us. So I was glad to hear Biden call for unity. . . .”

Except, as Cruz points out, Biden went straight to the Oval Office and began doing all he could to not only continue the disunity but magnify it. Why? Because a united Republic will not allow Biden and his ilk to do as they want. They want to keep us at odds with one another so they can continue their work to turn our great nation into a pale imitation of Soviet Russia or, worse, Communist China.
Thursday, Cruz penned a letter to his fellow senators asking them to oppose Alejandro Mayorkas’ nomination as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Among the reasons Cruz cited for not confirming Mayorkas is:
Mayorkas overrode normal process in order to provide political favors under the EB-5 visa program to well-connected Democrat stakeholders — including a company run by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s brother that sought a visa for a vice president of Huawei Technologies and a company in which Senator Harry Reid’s son was involved,” Cruz writes.
“Mr. Mayorkas’s improper intervention was the deciding factor in granting visas to politically favored companies and people, and led to ‘significant resentment’ among not only career staff but ‘senior managers and attorneys responsible for USCIS mission and programs.’ As the Inspector General bluntly put it, Mr. Mayorkas’s intervention was ‘corrosive and destabilizing,’”
Yesterday, Cruz showed he is more concerned about our school-aged children and their futures than anyone in the Biden Administration, the President included, happen to be. As someone who believes our children deserve a quality education, he doesn’t believe they should be denied access to one just because of a pandemic. The problem? Teachers unions that are telling their members not to report back to the classroom.
Unfortunately, many teachers’ union bosses are exploiting this health crisis and barring students from attending public schools. Students are falling behind, and it’s become clear that American families need school choice now more than ever.”
If you wade in the swamp that is Twitter, you will find the usual suspects condemning Cruz for this comment, claiming he is being dishonest. After all, just the other day he condemned Biden for issuing the executive order doing away with tens of thousands of union jobs by banning new wells on federal land. What these idiots don’t understand is that Cruz wasn’t worried about the unions but about the workers and their families. Just as he is worried about the teachers who are being pressured by their unions not to return to the classroom. But that doesn’t fit the liberal narrative and narrative is everything.
He pointed out that the union leadership in Fairfax County, VA demanded “teachers skip the line and get vaccinated ahead of other, more vulnerable people, and then wouldn’t commit to re-opening schools even after all teachers have been vaccinated.” So, the union wanted their membership protected but then wanted to continue keeping them out of the classroom and drawing their salaries and benefits while our children suffer the consequences.
But Cruz is the bad guy.
Just this week, the Centers for Disease Control published a report stating that schools should reopen as soon as possible as long as social distancing and mask-wearing can be maintained. And Congress has allocated almost $82 billion to help schools reopen.”
And the response from Biden and company? Crickets or excuses but no action. Nothing to help our kids return to the classroom and get the quality education they deserve. But you betcha these good liberals will find a way to use the continued school closures to increase our taxes and perpetuate a welfare system that makes it increasingly difficult to get off the dole.
But Cruz (and those who share his ideals) is the bad guy.
All the while Biden calls for unity–as long as unity is falling in line with what the Obama-lite White House wants.
Not that it’s stopped Cruz. The senator proved he is willing to put personal feelings aside for the good of the nation, tweeting support for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s comments about the Gamestop/Robinhood debacle. Her response showed just how much the Democrats want unity–and the short answer is they don’t. Instead of thanking him for his support, she accused him of trying to get her killed during the Jan. 6th protests. Yes, you read that right. And, because he won’t toe her progressive (read socialist) line and shut up, she basically told him to go to Hell.
Where’s that unity Biden spoke about?
The drive to divide isn’t limited to the Liberals. The so-called Republican Accountability Project has taken out at least one billboard demanding Cruz and others who dared question the validity of the vote tallies for the presidential election resign from office. In a truly mind-numbing bit of “logic”, they claim challenging the outcome of the election directly led to the “attack” on the Capitol. Where was all their outrage over Al Gore and his claims about the hanging chads or Hillary who still wants to claim victory in 2016?
None of these attacks have stopped Cruz. Instead of tucking tail and hiding in his office like the Dems and certain so-called Conservatives, he’s kept up his attempt to make it clear to the American public what is going on in our nation’s capital. Ted Cruz is many things, including abrasve at times, but he won’t back down and he will do the job he was elected to do: represent his constituents. That’s something too many of his fellow pols on the Hill forget to do.
We need those members of Congress like Ted Cruz, men and women who value the Constitution, who know they are in the Capitol to represent their districts. We might not always agree with them, but they are one line of defense against those who are so willingly undermining the very foundations of our nation.
That’s especially true when we have a president who has signed more than 40 executive orders his first week in office. Ted Cruz isn’t perfect, but he is certainly better than the alternative.
