Hooray for Gov. Greg Abbott and Hooray for Immigration Enforcement!

 I read the following story this morning in The Daily Texan and thought I’d share it with all of you. People who don’t want existing immigration laws enforced like to call the rest of us things like “bigots” and “racists” just because we want our immigration laws upheld by those charged with their enforcement. That does not make us racists! And it does not make us bigots, or haters, or members of the KKK.

America is a nation of “mutts”. The people here came from all around the world in search of better place to raise their children. Everyone here, with the exception of the Native American Indians, came from somewhere else! The people of America come in every race, creed, and color known to man. We are “Americans”. Not African-American, or Asian-American, or Mexican American etc, we are just Americans. The “Mutts” of the world. Why mutts? We are mutts because just like the name implies, we are a mixed breed of every race and color of human being found  on the planet.

We are the minorities of the world, all of us. That is what makes us the greatest country in the world. So to run around calling Americans names like “racists” just shows your stupidity. I’m not saying that no racists exist in America because they exist, and come in every color. I’m just saying that it’s really hard to be a racist in America, since most Americans are mutts, and come from all across the globe.

What we are talking about here is not racism. We are talking about the rule of law, and enforcing the rule of law in this country. Anyone who calls us racists for wanting the law enforced is nothing more than an agitator, trying to end any debate without even having a debate. They are the brain-washed simpletons that mindlessly repeat what they’ve heard on MSNBC and they are the reason the greatest country in the world is in such a mess. And frankly I’m tired of their mouths! These days being called a racist is an every day occurrence for anyone who disagrees with the socialist agenda of the left. The people who will tell you openly that they support Socialism for America.

Just because we are mostly mutts in this country does not mean that we leave our borders unprotected, and just let anyone into the country who can swim or walk across the border. No country in the world can survive without a border and clear guidelines about who can cross it. Our world is full of terrorists and drug traffickers who want nothing more than to “Come to America”. But we cannot survive as a nation, or as a people if we just let them into our country “no questions asked”.

There is a system in place to deal with people who wish to migrate to America legally. All they need to do is go down to the immigration and naturalization office and fill out the proper forms. Then you see, they can immigrate here legally and they don’t even have to swim! They don’t have to live in fear of ICE coming to arrest and deport them, because they followed the law, instead of entering the country as a criminal. And YES, you ARE a criminal if you break the law to enter this country.

It’s how my great grandparents did it, and most likely how your forefathers done it too. Because they chose to enter America legally we are all now citizens of the greatest country in the world. Had they chose to break the law and enter the U.S. illegally we’d all be illegal aliens. Thank goodness our ancestors were not criminals, and as a reward for them obeying the law, their children and grandchildren are citizens too.

Rewarding the act of illegally crossing into the U.S. with citizenship is not even an option. You cannot survive as a country by rewarding those who break the law. An illegal alien’s first act upon entering this country was to break our immigration laws! That means that him/her should be deported. His/Her children should be deported too. Deported for knowingly violating our immigration laws, PERIOD. And it’s sad. It’s sad to see children and their families deported because their parents broke the law when entering the country.

It was sad when my father-in-law went to prison for 20 years too. But he broke the law, when he robbed the Wells Fargo bank so he went! I mean can we really only enforce laws that make nobody sad? My father-in-law had a wife and children that needed him home, but that did not stop the government from sending him to prison. And rightly so. Because America is a nation of laws, and not of men, we do sad things to maintain law and order.

Why did I go into that you ask. Because most of the arguments from those standing in the way of immigration enforcement will have “The children” in there somewhere. How miserable and pathetic they are, and how we cannot just deport them because of what their parents did. Wonder where those people were when my wife grew up fatherless? The children never entered the picture, the judge said “20 years” and it was over.

We need more strong leaders like Greg Abbott in this country. He has my full support, and that of most Texans. I’ve talked enough, here is the first of 2 stories I’d like to share with you. It was posted in The Daily Texan on 02/01/2017.

And following this story I’d like to share another story from The Dallas Morning News in which you can hear some of what I’m talking about above from immigration enforcement opponents. We have a clip of community organizers, you know the ones who say we are all racists and bigots because we want our immigration laws enforced, and we have Dallas County passing a resolution they call “Welcoming Communities” which basically states they are a sanctuary city. The folks of Dallas County supposedly support this stand. We’ll see how committed to it they are when they are asked to dig into their pockets to replace the Grant money they lost by taking this stand. Anyone can be an idealist, it’s easy with other people’s money. Let’s see how they fare using their own money.

 


Gov. Greg Abbott cuts $1.5 million in funds for Travis County for sheriff’s immigration policy

Gov. Greg Abbott withheld $1.5 million in grants for Travis County after Sheriff Sally Hernandez enacted a policy to not comply with federal immigration agents Wednesday, according to the Texas Tribune.

“We are in a legislative session — we are working on laws that will, one, ban sanctuary cities, remove from office any office holder who promotes sanctuary cities and impose criminal penalties as well as financial penalties,” Abbott told Fox News last week.

The County lost the Criminal Justice Grant from Abbott’s office after Hernandez said, starting today, she would not allow immigration agents to detain undocumented immigrants held in local jails without a warrant. Immigration Agents make detainer requests to investigate jailed undocumented immigrants, and Hernandez said in a video last week these requests only ask but do not require local law enforcement to fulfill them.

“I will not allow fear and misinformation to be my guiding principles as a leader sworn to protect this community,” Hernandez said in a statement from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday. “Our community is safer when people can report crimes without fear of deportation.”

Abbott said last week he would seek a bill to remove elected officials who do not comply with federal immigration enforcement. Hernandez said she will comply with detainer requests without warrants from a judge only for undocumented immigrants who commit sexual assault, murder or human trafficking, according to the Statesman.

On Tuesday during his State of the State address, Abbott made banning sanctuary cities an emergency item to discipline those protecting undocumented immigrants from federal immigration enforcement.

“Elected officials cannot pick and choose which laws they will obey,” Abbott said. “Some law enforcement officials in Texas are openly refusing to enforce an existing law. That is unacceptable.”

 

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick filed Senate Bill 4 banning sanctuary cities, and the bill is set for a public hearing on Thursday at 8 a.m.

I agree with Greg Abbott 100%. Officials cannot pick and choose which laws they enforce. Their job is to enforce existing laws, period! They cannot allow their political views to obstruct their duties. These officials are refusing to enforce immigration laws which have been on the books for many years. This is a fine example of those who oppose immigration enforcement. It has most of the major elements anyway.

People like us who support immigration enforcement are labeled as “bigots” and “haters” in a round about way, and sometimes are directly called bigots and racists. The lady in the video at the bottom is representative of 95% of those opposing immigration enforcement.

She says “We are not going to stand for bigotry and hatred”. Let me tell you something lady, I DO hate people like you!!! But NOT because of your Gender, Color, or Sexual Orientation etc.

I hate you because you spread hate. You spend your days convincing others that people who want our laws enforced are bigots and racists, when in reality they are only doing their duty as citizens by asking that our laws are upheld by enforcement agencies.

The great thing about America is that if you disagree with a law you have the ability to petition to have it changed. If your Representative won’t see about changing it, then you can vote for one that will. What you cannot do is “pick and choose” which laws you will enforce and which laws you will not. In the era of Obama people seem to have forgotten that.

Just like when Eric Holder and the Justice Department went after Conservative Groups using government agencies to audit, harass, and fine people because they disagree with them politically. That is called “Tyranny” folks. It’s when the laws ore “overlooked” for your friends, but overly enforced on those which you disagree.

This country has allowed Obama and Eric Holder to just steamroll over the rights of their political rivals while overlooking the illegal actions of their friends. They both belong in prison for their actions. If our founders were alive today I guarantee you they’d agree with me, and take actions to make it a reality. I want you to watch the liberals scream and whine like babies when Trump performs the exact same actions that they said Obama “Had the authority” to do!

Global Gun Control Advocates to Meet in NYC to Set UN Disarmament Agenda

28d51747fd5fd83522efa694064d799c_xl

Written by 

Anti-gun globalists will meet in New York City this week discuss ways to confiscate small arms and ammunition from civilians and to consolidate monopoly control over those weapons in the hands of the governments of United Nations (UN) member states. The convention is part of a UN-controlled process of disarmament called the Programme of Action (PoA).

From June 6-10 delegates from around the world will attend the Sixth Biennial Meeting of States (BMS6) of the PoA. This latest planning meeting will give delegates an opportunity to move the ball closer to the goal of ridding the world’s civilian population of the small arms and ammunition that could challenge the ability of UN-approved governments to carry out the will of the world body.

Serving as an agenda for the deliberations will be the Chair’s Summary published after the last meeting in 2015. For Americans, then, it will be instructive to examine this document and identify all of the proposals that would violate the Constitution, specifically the right to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment. To this end, I will highlight a few of the provisions of the Chair’s Summary that represent the most clear and present danger to liberty.

First, the plan as put forth in the Chair’s Summary calls for the UN’s member states to eliminate the threat of technologically advanced weapons, including so-called polymer firearms and 3D printed guns, as well as the tracking of materials used in the “craft-production of small arms and light weapons.”

Not surprisingly, the representative from China called for increased UN-mandated regulations on 3D printers and the weapons they produce.

Specifically, the Chair’s Summary calls for “strengthening 3D printing regulations in the context of 3D weapon printing,” for “ensuring export licenses [are] in place for 3D printers,” for drawing global attention to “the need to pay attention to the resale of such printers,” and for “strengthening controls over 3D printing technology.”

No one is shocked, of course, that the globalists at the UN want to draw up comprehensive plans to take guns — any and every variety of gun — out of the hands of civilians.

After discussing similar strategies to lock down the manufacture, purchase, sale, and transfer of polymer weapons and modular weapons, the next item on the agenda warrants an immediate withdrawal of the United States from the world body.

Paragraph 33 of the Chair’s Summary of the meeting calls for urgent tracking of civilian-owned firearms, recommending that manufacturers be forced by the UN to install “RFID and biometric technologies in limiting the access to the weapon to authorized users only,” with authorized users defined as state actors (UN member nations).

That’s right. As part of the Programme of Action (the foundation upon which the Arms Trade Treaty is built — a treaty nearly half of the U.S. Senate supports), the United States has committed to passing legislation that will require domestic firearms and ammunition manufacturers to equip their products with RFID chips and biometric technologies that will help the government slowly but surely disarm civilians.

That’s not all. At the end of that paragraph, the UN suggests governments look into combining RFID chips, biometrics, with GPS tracking technologies to be sure to prevent regular people from getting their hands on guns.

So, at this week’s meeting, the UN will not only set out the schedule of domestic gun regulations, but it will instruct third-world regimes where to look for the money to help pay for the implementation of these new disarmament policies: increased foreign aid from the United States.

Specifically, the unelected, unaccountable UN globocrats call for greater “international cooperation and assistance” (read: American taxpayer dollars) to offset the massive cost of the “transfer of technology and knowledge” necessary to make the proposed gun grab a reality.

It should be noted that Paragraph 42 of the summary proposes funding this fascism “through the UN regular budget,” 22 percent of which is paid by the United States, through a process that can be described as nothing less than legalized theft of the wealth of the American worker.

Next, the document calls for the cultivating of a “culture of peace,” which is certainly shorthand for flooding the United States with UN-created propaganda linking the civilian ownership of firearms with homicide and other violent crimes.

Given the fact that both major party presidential candidates endorse some level of federal restriction on the right to keep and bear arms, it doesn’t take too much foresight to predict a panoply of renewed calls for controlling and regulating civilian access to firearms.

Additionally, according to the text of the Chair’s Summary that will serve as the to-do list for the world’s international cadre of gun confiscators, the POA will serve as an “international instrument to enable states to identify and trace, in a timely and reliable manner,” the small arms and light weapons that are the subject of the scheme.

In practice, this means that the governments of member nations (including the United States) will soon create a massive, all-inclusive database of all parties that manufacture, own, sell, trade, or transfer arms and ammunition.

If recent history is a reliable indicator of how such data would be used, after the catalog is complete, Congress could pass a law (or the president could issue an executive order) compelling “voluntary” surrender of privately-owned weapons, ammo, parts, and components (including reloading equipment). If, after a statutorily-set window, citizens don’t turn in these items to their local law enforcement, then officers will be sent to remind violators of their responsibility under the law to disarm.

How will this worldwide tracking of weapons, ammo, and component parts be carried out?

Paragraph 32 of the Chair’s Summary lays out the plan for “real-time tracking” of firearms and ammunition “from manufacturer to storage and from storage up to the individual users.”

Once the governments of the member nations begin tracking and confiscating weapons from civilians, the Programme of Action (paragraphs 30 and 31) mandates that member governments take “direct control over transfers of small arms and light weapons.”

This control will require the federal government to begin stockpiling these items and making a database of the recently impounded guns, bullets, 3D printers, plastics, polymers, and component parts.

This database must include “the marking, record-keeping and tracing of weapons, and in this regard considered barcodes, radio frequency identification (RFID) and biometrics for purposes of electronically identifying stored items, collecting data on them and enabling the data to be entered automatically into record-keeping systems.”

It is evident from a reading of this latest UN disarmament publication that despite the rhetoric related to ”promotion of a culture of peace,” there are only two reasons the UN is making every effort to disarm the population of the United States: to weaken our sovereignty, and to take from our people their ability to resist those despots (at home and abroad) who would place us under the boot of tyranny and demote us to the ranks of slaves on a “sustainable” global plantation.

Finally, the upcoming confiscation confab will demand member states confirm their commitment to achieving the climate and sustainability goals set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was adopted in September 2015. The startling complexity and comprehensiveness of these goals were examined by The New American’s Alex Newman in an article published earlier this year. Newman writes:

Perhaps the single most striking feature of Agenda 2030 is the practically undisguised roadmap to global socialism and corporatism/fascism, as countless analysts have pointed out. To begin with, consider the agenda’s Goal 10, which calls on the UN, national governments, and every person on Earth to “reduce inequality within and among countries.” To do that, the agreement continues, will “only be possible if wealth is shared and income inequality is addressed.”

Americans committed to preserving their natural right to protect their liberty from those who would threaten it through the implementation of international agreements requiring the de facto repeal of the Second Amendment are encouraged to stand together in this urgent fight for freedom.

There is no organization better positioned to prepare Americans with the resources necessary to defeat the forces of disarmament in the UN and in our own government than The John Birch Society (JBS). For more than five decades, the JBS has worked to “Get U.S. out of the UN.” The strength that results from this unmatched record of results makes the JBS uniquely able to increase the awareness of the American people for the fight to retain the right to keep and bear arms.

America at War would like to add That there are things in this world worth dying over, and I would have to classify the ability to defend myself as one of those things!!! So you can have my gun when you pry it from my cold dead hand

Indoctrinating America’s Children

Obama speaks from a Mosque, his Administration refuses to utter the words “radical Islam”, while schools across America force children to recite the Shahada, the Islamic declaration of faith, which reads: “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah.”

America at War  02/04/2016

obama-mosque-visit-640

All of this while children are no longer reciting the Pledge of Allegiance because it simply mentions God.

I do not support the term “radical Islam” myself. Because it implies Islam itself is not radical. If you read the Q’uran you’ll find that what ISIS practices is Islam. Right out of the pages of their Holy book. A “radical” is nothing more than a devout Muslim. And to tell you the truth, if anyone hashijacked” the religion it is those who DO NOT support the violence. That may make Barry boil over with frustration, but the facts don’t lie.

Islam has been a source of violence and oppression for over 1400 years. Islamic invaders have destroyed priceless artifacts, temples, and writings of other religions for that entire 1400 year time span. Don’t take my word for it, do some research. Even people that think they are educated in the subject of Islam will be surprised at the sheer volume of destruction through the centuries.

Our children are not hearing about that though. They are being taught the “Unicorn milk and Rainbows” version of Islam. For years and years now Liberals have been trying to remove the mention of Jesus Christ or God from schools. But in the last couple of years they have decided it’s absolutely necessary to teach kids about Allah. This is the most wide scale manipulation of young minds I’ve ever seen.

The government is literally fabricating history and  facts and selling it to the next generation as The Religion of Peace. They tossed God from the school house, and in their very next motion welcomed Allah with open arms.

I learned something about America that went in the face of everything that I thought I knew. I always thought that if an American President ever lied to the citizens of this country that they’d be drummed out of office, like Nixon. I always thought if the government ever tried to oust God and replace Him with Allah that they’d all lose their jobs and be run out of town.

I always thought that if the media ever started fabricating and weaving stories instead of reporting the actual news that American citizens would, and could force their networks out of business. Normal Americans have become impotent. Unable to stop the onslaught of insanity.

America has spiraled out of control further than I ever imagined it could! We have been on auto pilot for too long, and they have caught us sleeping. Even if we make a course correction now, how long can we maintain it with generations of Americans being taught lies in school? I’m not just referencing this subject either. Everything from common core to the liberal philosophies being taught to our children in schools today.

The kids of today are not learning the same “History” lessons that we learned. History did not change, but those writing it did. Your children do not know the same history as you were taught. They have “history version 2.0 beta” which is an alter reality version pushing an agenda, a Liberal Muslim agenda.

Here is a story I was reading today.

Lawsuit Filed Against Maryland HS for Islamic Indoctrination

Mon, February 1, 2016

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of parents of a Maryland teenager who say their daughter was forced to profess and write out the Shahada, the Islamic declaration of faith, which reads: “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah.”

Recitation of the statement is sufficient to convert a non-Muslim to Islam. In addition, the latter half of the statement  signifies the person has accepted Mohammed as their prophet.

According to lawsuit, the teenager, a student at La Plata High School in La Plata, Maryland, was also required to memorize and recite the Five Pillars of Islam. The Thomas More Law Center, attorneys for the case, charges that Charles County Public Schools disparaged Christianity by teaching its students that: “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.”

The high school also taught:

  • “Islam, at heart, is a peaceful”
  • “To Muslims, Allah is the same God that is worshiped in Christianity and Judaism.”
  • The Koran states, “Men are the managers of the affairs of women” and
  • “Righteous women are therefore obedient.”

You can read the course material by clicking here.

The teenager’s father, John Kevin Wood, a former Marine and a veteran of the Iraq War, became concerned when he saw that his daughter and other students were taught extensively about Islam and required to list the benefits of the religion but were not taught about Islam in the context of current events.

One homework assignment, obtained by a news outlet asked questions including, “How did Muslim conquerors treat those they conquered?” The correct answer was, “With tolerance, kindness and respect.”

Students were not allowed to opt out of the curriculum.

The lawsuit contends the school is violating his daughter’s “constitutional rights.”

Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues

The media are no longer the watchdogs for the American public, but the lapdogs of a liberal agenda committed to the destruction of life. The Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues calls out journalists for their ongoing blackout of pro-life news and demands reporters live up to the standards of journalistic integrity by covering life issues.

The March for Life Media Censorship

The three broadcast networks – ABC, CBS and NBC – have promoted Planned Parenthood, downplayed scandalous abortion videos and given little attention to the march and other pro-life events.

Last year, 200,000 people filled Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life commemorating the 57 million babies snuffed out since 1973’s Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Only CBS mentioned the march, allotting just 15 seconds. That was only one second for every 13,000 people who put work, school and other obligations aside to travel from as far away as the West Coast. That was only one second for every 3.8 million babies aborted in the last four decades.

In 2014, the networks devoted 46 seconds to the hundreds of thousands marching in Washington, D.C. Yet, ABC, NBC and CBS spent six times that on the National Zoo’s new panda cub and four-and-a-half times that on the Climate March.

Since 2013, the networks have devoted just 78 seconds to the March for Life – slightly more than they might have spent broadcasting a couple of burger ads.

This year, ABC, CBS and NBC have no excuse to silence these pro-life voices. This year, the Center for Medical Progress released horrific videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of aborted baby parts. This year, CMP’s David Daleiden proved a game-changer not only in the pro-life movement but also in Congress.

This year, it’s time for the networks to stop censoring the news and to tell the truth about the March for Life.

To hold the media accountable on life issues, Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues encourages citizens to contact the network representatives listed below to demand coverage of the march and pro-life issues. Tell @ABC, @CBSNews and @NBCNews to #CovertheMarch on Twitter.

Mr. Steve Burke

CALL NOW:
(877) 784-9793

President, NBC Universal

New York, NY 10023

Outlined below are some important talking points:

  1. Last year, despite hundreds of thousands of marchers, ABC and NBC failed to even mention the March for Life. CBS allotted just 15 seconds. This is NOT journalism. This is bias.
  2. Since 2013, ABC, CBS and NBC have spent just 78 seconds covering the March for Life.
  3. This year, after the Planned Parenthood videos and Congress’ push to defund Planned Parenthood, there is no excuse to ignore the march other than a pure liberal bias.
  4. Ask the media to cover the March for Life fairly and accurately. This includes:
      • Details of the March and its purpose
      • Accurate number of attendees based on the official headcount
      • Speakers and their topics
      • 2016 March for Life theme: “Pro-Life and Pro-Woman Go Hand-in-Hand”
      • Focus on the pro-life rally and attendees, not the outnumbered minority of pro-choice protesters. This rally is not about them, it’s about the unborn

Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues Guidelines

To regain the trust of the American public, Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues urges journalists to adhere to the following guidelines while reporting on life issues:

1. Report on life issues of public interest.

The media have an obligation to report on life, from the unborn to the elderly. That includes videos questioning a taxpayer-funded organization and events like a congressional vote to defund Planned Parenthood.

2. Report on the pro-life movement.

Report on the March for Life and on the movement’s nationwide protests and other pro-life events. Don’t censor voices according to an agenda.

3. Include pro-life voices.

As journalists, remember to include experts who defend life, from conception until natural death, regardless of personal ideology.

4. Refuse conflict-of-interest awards.

Reject awards or benefits, as a journalist, from special interest organizations that expect something in return. And they often expect something in return.

5. Don’t Dismiss. Investigate.

Take seriously the claims against abortion organizations like Planned Parenthood. Don’t assume the talking points of one side. Look into health complaints at facilities and report on patients that have been harmed by abortion.

Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues encourages citizens to petition news outlets to show scenes like these to the American public, instead of engaging in censorship:

Cruz Commander – TV Ad

Sit back and watch #CruzCommander (IN CHIEF) in his new ad with the boys from Duck Commander!!!

We are voting for you!!! ALL of us!!!

WASHINGTON– Sen. Ted Cruz spent the weekend duck hunting and winning over Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson’s endorsement.

The campaign released a new ad with the endorsement, showing Cruz and Robertson huddled in a duck blind, covered head-to-toe in camouflage and donning dark face paint.

Cruz said at a gun rally yesterday they were blowing ducks out of the sky.

“My qualifications for president of the United States are rather narrow,” Robertson said in the ad, quieting concerns over Cruz’s natural-born citizenship.

“Is he or she Godly, does he or she love us, can he or she do the job, and finally would they kill a duck and put him in a pot and make him a good duck gumbo?” he said.

Robertson tells Cruz he is “one of us, my man” earning Robertson’s vote.

Robertson and Cruz last met at a rally against the Iran nuclear deal in September. At the time Robertson said “I was anti [establishment] when anti wasn’t even cool,” noting that Cruz, along with his rival Donald Trump were true anti-establishment candidates.

Secret Recordings of Cruz Shows Nothing Secret At All

By:Amanda Carpenter | December 23rd, 2015

 

Oh, I could hear the balloon deflating all the way from the Politico headquarters.

Phllloooooooopppphhtt.

Last week, on the day of the highly-watched GOP presidential debate, someone gave Politico’s Mike Allen an enticing piece of catnip to put in his insidery morning email. Secret audio tape would soon be published on a conservative news site supposedly showing that Ted Cruz talks much differently to NYC moderates than Iowa evangelicals. “These leaks are designed to undermine Cruz’s authenticity,” Allen wrote.

The prospect of a juicy secret recording flew around the Internet.

People reported on the prospect of the audio tape, before ever hearing a word of what Cruz said. All by design, to be sure, just like Allen wrote. The whole intent was to plant the notion that Cruz is a big phony – without a shred of evidence.

Days and days went by. Nothing. Then, finally this morning Politico published the story. The day before Christmas Eve. Aka the holiday news dump. They didn’t have the goods.  Someone put one over Mike Allen.

Now that it’s finally out, what did Cruz say? Absolutely nothing he hasn’t said in public before.

Politico wrote:

“During the question period, one of the donors told Cruz that gay marriage was one of the few issues on which the two disagreed. Then the donor asked: “So would you say it’s like a top-three priority for you — fighting gay marriage?”

“No,” Cruz replied. “I would say defending the Constitution is a top priority. And that cuts across the whole spectrum — whether it’s defending [the] First Amendment, defending religious liberty.”

The story went on:

“A well-known Republican operative not affiliated with a 2016 campaign said by email when sent Cruz’s quote: “Wow. Does this not undermine all of his positions? Abortion, Common Core — all to the states? … Worse, he sounds like a slick D.C. politician — says one thing on the campaign trail and trims his sails with NYC elites. Not supposed to be like that.”

Hilarious. These operatives don’t seem to understand that the Constitution happens to cover religious liberty issues. Like marriage. And, pretty much everything else!

Moreover, as Politico even admits, Cruz has made the exact argument in public places, including during interviews with Stephen Colbert and Jay Leno!

Specifically, when Stephen Colbert suggested that Cruz believed there should be “no gay marriage,” Cruz stopped him and said, “Let’s be precise. Under the Constitution, marriage is a question for the states, if you want to change the marriage law–”

Colbert then interjected the “Constitution doesn’t mention marriage.”

And Cruz explained, “That’s exactly why it’s a question for the states. The 10th Amendment says if it doesn’t mention it, it’s a question for the states. That’s in the Bill of Rights. Everything that is not mentioned is left to the states.”

Cruz went on,

“I don’t think we should entrust governing our society to five unelected lawyers in Washington. Why would you possibly hand over the rights of 320 million Americans to five lawyers in Washington to decide these are the rules that govern you? If you want to win an issue, go to the ballot box and win at the ballot box. That’s the way the Constitution was designed.”
