Ted Cruz: Syria, Obamacare ‘tied’
Politico ^ | 8/28/13 5:03 PM EDT | MACKENZIE WEINGER

Posted on 08/28/2013 8:00:39 PM PDT by SoConPubbie

Sen. Ted Cruz on Wednesday tied Obamacare and Syria together, saying the two issues are linked “by an arrogance of this administration.”

The Texas Republican told radio host Rush Limbaugh that it’s clear by the way President Barack Obama and his administration approaches Obamacare and the conflict in Syria that “they don’t believe they’re accountable to the American people.”

“Fundamentally, actually, these two issues, you look at Syria, you look at Obamacare,” Cruz said, according to a transcript on Limbaugh’s site. “They’re tied together. They’re tied together by an arrogance of this administration, that they don’t believe they’re accountable to the American people, and they are going to jam their agenda down the throats of the American people.”

And both cases can be solved in one way, according to Cruz: “The American people have to rise up and hold every elected official accountable.”

“And on both of them, the answer is the same as it was on guns; it’s the same as it is on stopping amnesty, which is the American people have to rise up and hold every elected official accountable, Democrat and Republican,” he added. “Every one of us, including me.”

Limbaugh replied that “the American people ought to have a political party that’s willing to stand up and join them in stopping this, too, and right now, they don’t think they do. They’ve got you, they got [Utah Sen.] Mike Lee, a couple or three others. Everybody else they see is caving.”

(Also on POLITICO: Anti-war Democrats speak up on Syria)

“Well, I agree,” Cruz said. “Sadly, right now, the people who are leading the fight to stop the effort to defund Obamacare are Republicans. It’s not Democrats. That’s a sad state of affairs. I hope it changes. I hope the Republicans stop trying to prevent us from defunding Obamacare and, instead, we come together — and the only way they will is if millions of Americans go to DontFundIt.com, speak up and demand that our elected officials listen to the people.”

As for possibility of military action in Syria, Cruz blasted Obama as “an out-of-control president” who has had an “imperial” and “lawless” presidency.

“Right now, in the U.K., they’re having an emergency session of parliament to consider Syria,” Cruz said. “In Israel the Knesset is considering an emergency session and yet President Obama apparently wants to go to the UN but can’t be bothered to go to United States Congress or the American people and make the case. Look, you know, the authority to declare war rests in Congress, not in an out-of-control president.”

Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.

Where are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?

Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?

Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?

The main thing that Speaker Boehner is afraid of is being blamed for doing his job.

Speaker Boehner’s job now is to shut down the NON-ESSENTIAL parts of the US Federal Government until Obama’care’ is ABOLISHED, and keep it shut down for however long it takes.

Obama will continue to ruin America as long as Boehner is Speaker of the US House of Represenatives.

Four + years of Boehner has proven Boehner to be unfit to combat Tyrant Obama.

It is now up to the Members of the House to replace Boehner so that the new Speaker can shut down the non-essential parts of the US Federal Government ASAP in order to ABOLISH Obama’care.’

“And on both of them, the answer is the same as it was on guns; it’s the same as it is on stopping amnesty, which is the American people have to rise up and hold every elected official accountable, Democrat and Republican,” he added. “Every one of us, including me.”

And how do we the people hold elected PsOS accountable? Email them? Call them? Snail mail them? Big deal, they pay no attention. Try to elect better ones? They lie to get elected. Open primaries. The R party gives creeps the money, etc. Or they just lose their moral compass and spine when they get to deecee and get blackmailed or threatened.

Limbaugh replied that “the American people ought to have a political party that’s willing to stand up and join them in stopping this, too, and right now, they don’t think they do. They’ve got you, they got [Utah Sen.] Mike Lee, a couple or three others. Everybody else they see is caving.”

Exactly. (Daniel Greenfield's recent article about Schizophrenic Elephant, the reason why the R party is the steaming pile that it is comes to mind.)

“Well, I agree,” Cruz said. “Sadly, right now, the people who are leading the fight to stop the effort to defund Obamacare are Republicans. It’s not Democrats. That’s a sad state of affairs. I hope it changes. I hope the Republicans stop trying to prevent us from defunding Obamacare and, instead, we come together — and the only way they will is if millions of Americans go to DontFundIt.com, speak up and demand that our elected officials listen to the people.”

I wish I was optimistic that that would have any effect, but I don't.

At least he is holding firm on everything that is important, including Illegal Immigration.

The same cannot be said for many in the Senate, including Rand Paul with his Amnesty plan.

If Cruz becomes the candidate for president, the dems will instantly find water tight legal and constiutitonal evidence that he is not a NBC since he was born on foreign soil, and they will be correct.

Cruz and Paul are close allies, and if they do not remain that, we have no hope. Our caucus is already small. If we kick out everyone who we do not agree with 100%, we will lose. Paul had an alternative immigration plan to show there is an alternative. It is politically wise. We do need reforms in a number of areas of immigration. I personally do not think this is the time because of Obama and Harry Reid holding too much of the power, but at some point we have to deal with a horribly outdated system and a porous border.

Maybe, maybe not, that being said, Senator Cruz does not strike me as one who backs away from a fight, so I doubt he will let their lying, scheming actions influence his choices one way or the other.

He's a leader, a Statesman, not a "finger-in-the-wind" politician like most of them.

I also know this; they won't find Constitutional evidence unless the Supreme Court rules that "Natural Born" means two US Citizen parents, because as of right now, there is no definition in the Constitution, no US Law, and no Supreme Court ruling that currently defines "Natural Born" in that manner. It will have to be a case that comes before them.

There is nothing wise, or smart, politically about Amnesty and that is what Rand Paul's "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" plan was all about. Forgiving the Illegality, the misdemeanors, and the felonies committed by a class of criminals and legalizing them.

Rand Paul could be perfect on all other issues, and yet, with this one issue, because of it's complete and utter destructive outcome on this constitutional Democratic Republic, he is a Traitor as is anyone who would give Amnesty and Citizenship ultimately to 30 million+ Undocumented Democrats.

By so doing, there would no longer be a chance for governance by Republicans, and much less Conservatives, and John McCain, Rand Paul, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and every other Amnesty Queen all know this.

And in refusing to face that reality, they have put their own well-being, their own careers, their moneyed-supporters ahead of the welfare of this country and the American People they are supposed to be representing and leading.

That is the definition of a Traitor.

I don’t call the GOP Ruling Class Judenrats for nothing.

That’s what they are.

That’s why Boehner runs interference for Obama and the Democrats.

That is why the GOP-e are helping to advance the Marxofascist tyranny being shoved down our throats.

They think they will share in the spoils of our absolute subjugation, refusing to acknowledge that what Obama and the MarxoFascists are perpetrating is a political extermination of liberty and this regime’s enemies.

We don’t need immigration “reform” meaning “amnesty”. We just need the border closed and existing laws enforced.

But only us people want it, the elites have their own agendas, all of which are destructive. Paul is just following the libertarian (or shall I say “Liberaltarian”) agenda on this. Let ‘em all come in, willy nilly!.

Outdated system? Nope, an un-enforced system. Due to weak sisters on the R side and traitorous bastards on the left.

Did you read Daniel Greenfield’s article about the R party? It’s vital. Explains why the GOP sucks. Why they like amnesty. Why they invariably disappoint, are eunuchs, say nice things to get us to vote and then can never stand up for conservative principles.

Of course there are a few good Rs but they can’t do much since the entire party apparatus and elites are rotten to the core.

And Paul is a liberaltarian at heart so that’s that.

And sadly, Cruz is not a NBC so the dems don’t need to pull out anything nefarious, just some of the research that’s been done on FR proving Zero a non-NBC will do.

Agreed, although it is more than enforcing existing laws. We have structural issues that prevent technology talent to come here,as one example. That’s the motivation for the silicon valley types to dump money into this. We have a system built at a time when the when the world economy was radically different and it needs to evolve...in addition to enforcement and border containment. I am with you 100% on no amnesty.

I am actually open to converting illegals here to a legal immigrant status as long as there are no special privileges or ‘path’ to citizenship that doesn’t already exist. It must come with the border control and enforcement first. This is one of those areas where a center right solution would be palatable to me...and I was hoping Rubio would have threaded that needle instead of pushing the left’s bill.

Which does nothing but put them on the path to citizenship and the eventual destruction of our nation.

Congratulations!

You agree with both the Democrats and GOP-E, that eventual perpetual Democrat Rule is a good thing.

BTW, I don't know how to characterize someone who believes that this is a "center-right" solution. The outcome of Amnesty, in what ever form it takes, has always been the dream of the Marxists, Progressives, and Democrats as they have always known that eventually it would lead to their total control.

Guess who knows the truth about NBC? - TED CRUZ himself, as he should.

And here on FR, SoConPubbie is absolutely correct about the Constitution, the law and the Court NOT defining natural born citizen as having anything to do with being born across a boundary line.

And the controlling law has been cited by FReeper xzins on one of the threads that people with the false view of it have turned into Birther threads. There is firm, unshakable ground to lawfully define NBC as a baby who was defined AT BIRTH as a citizen and not needing later naturalization. Based on either a mother or a father (both not required - read xzins legal citiation) who was clearly an American citizen and met certain age and residency requirements (born across a boundary line NOT controlling, American citizen parent controlling).

It will be happy days when Ted Cruz’s American citizenship at the moment of his birth is VINDICATED as the standing law of the land on the legal meaning of natural born citizenship.

It is vindicated here already thanks to several great FReepers’ work.

But in the end it will shine to the world as brightly as the brightest noonday sun, and will show Ted Cruz knows the truth about his own citizenship, as he should.

“He got rid of his Canadian citizenship”

As far as I’ve seen, he has said he will take legal steps to officially renounce such citizenship IF he finds that he has it. I read where he said his mother once told him he could pursue having Canadian citizenship if he wanted to, he did nothing to pursue it and thought that was the end of the matter.

So first, before he could rid himself of Canadian citizenship he needs to know if he has it, or did he have to pursue it in order to have it? If he does have it and didn’t know because he never tried to go down that road, then he will officially renounce it.

People need to understand that even if he has it, ???, that has no bearing whatsoever on the fact that he has had American citizenship since his birth. He need not renounce it, because it has no affect on anything, but he would choose to renounce it because he never sought it and in his own mind is only an American citizen.

Can we save the 3-year headache we're going to have and just start banning these Cruz birthers now? It isn't rocket surgery. There are two types of citizens: citizens at birth and naturalized citizens. That's it. If you are a citizen at birth, then you are a NBC. Every other criteria is just made-up, personal opinion crap. Next, these people are going to be claiming that anyone born by C-section is ineligible because it wasn't a natural birth. Therefore they aren't 'natural born' citizens.

You know, that's what I'm going to start doing. I'm a 'sectioner.' Anyone running for president has to prove they weren't born by c-section. I want pictures of their mothers' stomachs. I mean, my made-up definition is just as valid as theirs.

Are the numbers going up on that site at all? I signed it last night after seeing a headline that said Rush listeners had so jammed the site that it crashed. Yet the number I saw then - 800,000-something - seems awfully close to what I thought I remembered Rush’s guest mentioning that they already had at that point (was Cruz the only guest he had on yesterday? I only caught a snippet while I was driving a couple miles). And the number there now is 836,186. This seems crazy for a site that got so much traffic it crashed. I hope the site is not being attacked by Obama’s thugs so that it “loses” signatures.

Doesn’t a legal question deserve a legal answer? How can the courts get away with saying that they don’t have to rule on the definition of “natural born citizen” because it’s nobody’s business? This is absolutely crazy. I have no idea what the courts will come up with if they ever address the issue, but dangling the issue in front of the public and saying they refuse to give us an answer is more pathetic than taunting a Downs Syndrome baby. Why are we putting up with this crap from our judiciary? If they won’t do their jobs, THEY need to be defunded!

If you have a problem with those who believe NBC means persons born on US soil to 2 US citizen parents, then what you should be doing is what we ALL should be doing: insisting that the courts do their frickin’ jobs and give us a legal answer to the question we have to be asking ourselves EVERY TIME WE GO IN THE VOTING BOOTH TO VOTE FOR PRESIDENT!!! It is ABSOLUTELY our business, and this playing chicken with the Constitution and the whole electoral process stinks worse than chicken sh!t.

It is possible by US law to renounce one’s citizenship. I assume it’s the same in Canada.

I think US law also has (and I could be wrong about this) an “assumption of renunciation” for someone who is born overseas, never affirms his US citizenship, acquires citizenship in another country, and passes a certain age.

You can renounce, and I think you can be assumed to have renounced if certain conditions are met.

When Rush first mentioned the website, and repeated it a few times, there were something like 748,000 signatures. Within 10 minutes, that number increased to 771,977 - or about 23,977 signatures.

Right now, it's up to 837,500. So, since Rush broadcast the website, it's increased by about 89,580 (roughly).

I imagine Rush will mention the website, again, when he talks about how the site crashed :)

The numbers have been rising at a much higher rate over the last week or so. Average gain is bout 50,000 per day. Yesterday saw a 40,000 jump in about three hours...after Ted Cruz was on the Ruch Limbaugh show!!! I think (IMHO), Cruz, Lee and company have been slowly cranking uo the campaign across the board, day by day!!! It is going to be quite successful. I suspect it will go over 1,000,000 signatures and endorsements before the coming weekend ends!!!

Sign & Endorse the Lee/Cruz/Palin/Rubio/Paul, Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, etc., etc., “Defund Obamacare” petition, immediately....TODAY

Potty mouth who mocks serious issues. A waste of bandwidth.

Potty mouth? I am sorry that the correct medical term offends you. It is your narrow mind that applies the vulgarity to it. The only waste of bandwidth are pretend constitutional scholars making up definitions to attack a true conservative. Their hidden agenda is the only serious issue here, not Cruz’s eligibility.

You’re mocking a serious issue: WHY DO THE COURTS INSIST THAT IT IS NOT OUR BUSINESS WHETHER THE CHOICES WE HAVE TO VOTE FOR IN CRITICAL PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS ARE EVEN CONSTITUTIONALLY ELIGIBLE?

Are you saying that the courts can deliberately keep us ignorant of matters we NEED to know about, in order to uphold the Constitution in the voting booth? Are you agreeing with the courts that it’s none of your business, to know whether the person you’re considering voting for could be kicked out if he was elected?

Vaginal birth, epesiotomy stitches, duration of labor, etc - that’s all stuff that only matters to the NSA and the thugs Obama is giving access to our medical records, and only for bribery and tabloid purposes much like Obama used to get his opponent’s divorce records and sexual allegations unsealed in order to win an election. Those are not legal issues and you know it. You bring that up only to mock what IS a serious issue - what the Founding Fathers meant when they said that only a “natural born citizen” shall be eligible to hold the office of President or Vice President.

I call you a potty mouth because you totally ignored what we both knew was the legal question and focused in on the process of giving birth which is irrelevant. I’ve given birth 6 times; I use the technical terminology regularly and have no embarrassment about it. When a radiologist focuses in on a breast for a mammogram there is nothing filthy about it. When somebody pretending to talk the law regarding cancer insurance focuses in on a breast when it is irrelevant to the legalities being discussed, it is a potty mouth thing to do.

the dems will instantly find water tight legal and constiutitonal evidence that he is not a NBC since he was born on foreign soil

Good! Maybe we can use that to get rid of ObamaCare and everything else this pResident has done.

. . . but at some point we have to deal with a horribly outdated system and a porous border.

I'd start with a quick path to citizenship for every high school valedictorian coupled with a quick path to deportation for every drug mule.

It makes a catchy slogan. Most of the American people would support it. And Maldef, MeCha, La Raza and every other Brown KKK affiliate would fight it tooth and nail.
