Ted Cruz continues anti-D.C. crusade in North Texas
Star-Telegram ^ | January 11, 2014 | Anna M. Tinsley

ALLEN — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz believes liberty is under assault, opportunity is crumbling and President Barack Obama’s administration is “utterly lawless.”

But he declared Saturday that he remains full of optimism about the future.

“The American people and only the American people can and will turn this country around,” Cruz told a crowd of more than 1,000 people gathered for a Freedom Rally at the Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church in Allen. “In the last couple of years, we have seen something extraordinary.

“We have seen the rise of the grassroots,” he said. “We have seen it here in Texas. … You inspire me.”

On Friday in Austin, he continued his attack, saying the current president is lawless, dangerous and terrifying.

And on Saturday — amid cheers, standing ovations and flag waving — he continued.

“Liberty is under assault … in this country like never before,” Cruz said. “We have a president [who seems as though he] is going down the Bill of Rights trying to violate them one at a time.”

Cruz said that among Democratic leaders in Washington, D.C., he sees a “consistent pattern of lawlessness, the contempt for rule of law.”

And he said the Affordable Care Act is a mistake.

“This is not an issue about right or left. This is not an issue about conservative or Republican,” Cruz said. “To be honest, there ought to be Democrats lining up” in opposition to it.

“We need to repeal every single word of Obamacare,” he said, adding that other changes need to be made as well, including abolishing the Internal Revenue Service, auditing the Federal Reserve and repealing the Dodd-Frank Act.

Ted Cruz and Texas, every time I see that I get a thrill, because it means that he has a strong base to operate from.

Ted Cruz needs to convince America about how and why Washington is destroying freedom. This is the big picture and Ted has a daunting task:

The Muslim Brotherhood is a religio-fascist organization.
Essentially they have their historical roots in one of its founders Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem ,who was a supporter of Adolf Hitler, and who organized Muslim regiments in support of the Nazis.( The current liberal fascists of the Obama Movement want us to forget about the MB-Hitler connection, and want us to only acknowledge the Egyptian founder of the MB,Hassan al-Banna, who also subscribed to Hitler’s final solution, the genocide of the Jews, as did Husseini.)

Reference:

http://www.billionbibles.org/sharia/hitler-muslim-brotherhood.html

******************************************************

Little has changed in the Muslim brotherhood since its founding, except the situs in which they operate. Obama employs them in the White House as did Hillary Clinton ( Huma Abeddin):

“Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.”

Source:

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/164009

**********************************************************

What religio-fascism is can be succinctly stated. Fascism is essentially nationalist socialism. MB nationalism comes from Islam and its arcane, draconian laws of Sharia, and a call for historic justice..( The Nazis nationalism came from an ideology of racial superiority and the Teutonic genome and a call for historic justice in relation to the Treaty of Versailles and reparations that Germany was required to pay to the Allied Powers). The socialism of the MB is that they subscribe to the redistribution of wealth from the infidel to the believers, using the method of Sharia Law.

Obama nationalism is based upon the ideology of Reverend Ralph Wright, the succinct belief in the superiority of the black race over all others, that the USA was built only through the white man’s exploitation of racial and ethnic minorities, and that historical justice is necessary to right these wrongs socially and economically through the redistribution of wealth, the descendants of those allegedly committing those wrongs must pay through the destruction of the middle class and the redistribution of wealth.).

There is a resurgence of fascism around the world in many nations. The problem we have in the USA is that the GOP will not recognize the Churchillian definition of what Obama represents and what the MB represents, supported by Hip Hop culture and a popular movement of “cool” fascism.

Egypt is quite correct in its move to destroy the MB, even at the cost of so called democracy which would promote the establishment of fascism, which is not really democracy per se. It is the exploitation of democracy as a concept to establish totalitarian tyranny.

This is what Arab Spring and its international promotion by Obama is all about. It will eventually lead to World War III when Iran acquires and employs nuclear weapons in Jihad. Both the Russians and the Chinese understand this fact and seek to exploit the international instability for their own nationalistic goals, and remove the USA as an international military power from the world stage.

The press in the West is generally ignorant, much as it was prior to WWII when the press supported the likes of Nazi sympathizers, leftist liberal fascist thug, democrat Joseph Kennedy who was the ambassador to Great Britain, and aviator Charles Lindbergh , he of Lindy ( hip?) Hop fame.( Fascists apparently like to hop.) The press in the West has become nothing more than a propaganda organ for the Obama fascist movement.

The fight against fascism in America can only begin when the GOP acknowledges the status of the Obama Movement as fascist, defining the fight we must undergo to destroy them. Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and others are the tip of the spear in this fight in the USA.

The Egyptians are actually far ahead of the USA in fighting the spread of fascism. I hope this short summary can clarify the issue of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose goal is actually world conquest, and the establishment of a world wide caliphate bound by Sharia Law. To accomplish that, World War III must be waged and won by Islam. The United States already appears to be defeated through the treasonous activity of so called president, Barak Hussein Obama.

Awhile back I met and spoke with Avi Lipkin who informs Netanyahu from time to time on Muslim political affairs and trends and he told me some pretty alarming things about what the Muslim world is up to in regards to taking over nations. Their is a real push right now and the U.S. is one of their primary targets and the real problem for us is that they have an ally in the WH. The man has fooled so many.

I like Cruz, but he doesn't seem to have any results under his belt. He does have the gift to gab, but what differences has he made? We still have Obamacare. We still have that budget. We need someone who will inspire other politicians to vote his way. He does not seem to be able to do that in a way that he turns votes into a majority. Reagan yes. Cruz not so much. Walker for 2016 if you want results and not just rhetoric.

What difference does the candidate make when the opposition responds with 200% voter participation and warehouses uncounted votes.

Ted Cruz - Texas Solicitor General

"Appointed to the office of Solicitor General of Texas by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, Cruz served in that position from 2003 to 2008.

Cruz has authored more than 80 United States Supreme Court briefs and presented 43 oral arguments, including nine before the United States Supreme Court. Cruz's record of having argued before the Supreme Court nine times is more than any practicing lawyer in Texas or any current member of Congress. Cruz has commented on his nine cases in front of the U.S. Supreme Court: "We ended up year after year arguing some of the biggest cases in the country. There was a degree of serendipity in that, but there was also a concerted effort to seek out and lead conservative fights."

In the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Cruz drafted the amicus brief signed by attorneys general of 31 states, which said that the D.C. handgun ban should be struck down as infringing upon the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Cruz also presented oral argument for the amici states in the companion case to Heller before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

In addition to his success in Heller, Cruz has successfully defended the constitutionality of Ten Commandments monument on the Texas State Capitol grounds before the Fifth Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court, winning 5-4 in Van Orden v. Perry.

In 2004, Cruz was involved in another high-profile case, which was Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdow. In Newdow, Cruz wrote a U.S. Supreme Court brief on behalf of all 50 states which argued that a non-custodial parent does not have standing in court to sue to stop a public school from requiring its students to recite of the Pledge of Allegiance. The Supreme Court upheld the position of Cruz’s brief in a 9-0 decision.

Cruz served as lead counsel for the state and successfully defended the multiple litigation challenges to the 2003 Texas congressional redistricting plan in state and federal district courts and before the U.S. Supreme Court, winning 5-4 in League of United Latin American Citizens v. Perry.

Cruz also successfully defended, in Medellin v. Texas, the State of Texas against an attempt by the International Court of Justice to re-open the criminal convictions of 51 murderers on death row throughout the United States.

Cruz has been named by American Lawyer magazine as one of the 50 Best Litigators under 45 in America,[43][48] by The National Law Journal as one of the 50 Most Influential Minority Lawyers in America, and by Texas Lawyer as one of the 25 Greatest Texas Lawyers of the Past Quarter Century."

Like him or not, Cruz is right on and we all need to get behind any candidate that has the potential to being this county back to something recognizable. The media deliberately fails to provide positive stories and articles about Cruz’s successes. ((Remember Palin?) The failure by the media to provide such information tells me he/she is a good, prospective candidate for POTUS.

Ghadaffi was destroyed by Obama so as to open up the heart of Africa to Islamic conquest.Obama’s strategic move in Libya destroyed a huge obstacle to the re-establishment of the old caliphate of Egypt, and a restoration of Sharia Law.

Oil money is funding this strategic effort.Kenya, Somalia, Sudan all soon will completely fall to Sharia law. Turkey is turning toward the Sharia imperative.Pakistan, Myanmar, Thailand, and so on into the Phillipines are all subjected to genocidal slaughter at the hands of Islam. They even control committees at the UN which would direct intervention against them.

The World is at tremendous risk from Islam, and their oil holds the West ransom. We either conquer them or abandon their oil and go exclusively to our own sources in the West. Of course Obama is against exploring for oil in the USA and its shores, and so he is pretty much doing the step and fetch for Islam in both the field of socio economics, domestically and strategically.

Obama is a Traitor.And his presidency should be terminated with extreme prejudice.

You are correct.

The Left is so hamstrung by Cruz’s resume and appeal, that the best most of them can muster is to say he’s like Hitler!

The intellectual depth of Obamanoids is missing.

Conservatives get it. The Establishment needs to get up to speed, or they’ll get left in the dust.

President Obama's policies are a disaster in Iran "...........................These three specific examples of tilting toward Iran — on Tehran's nuclear program, in Iraq and in Syria — form a pattern that deeply troubles Israel and America's Arab allies. They are already discounting Obama's ability and inclination to protect mutual interests in the Middle East. If Washington does not quickly change course, the loss of U.S. influence in that vital region will only accelerate.

We need to fihgure out a way to reach or move the low information voter. To do that we need to aggravate the Obama administration to over react, and to show the low information voter what tyranny the Obama movement truly represents.

The reason for this is that the piress is entrely on Obamas side, with a very few exceptions. That means that Obama must be driven like the piker he is, to make huge mistakes, and so far so good. Cruz knows this whole strategy, which is why he agreed to let Obama shut down the government.Lets see what else occurs. Watch for more and more radical reactions from The One.

Which is exactly what Obama wants. Its already happening in the Western Pacific.Obama wants the Islamic effort to establish a World Wide caliphate to succeed. The US is the only nation standing in the way.Once we are off the world stage as a peace keeper, war will encompass the entire globe,and with the rise of Iran as a nuclear power, WWIII will occur. OBAMA WANTS THIS.

This is exactly what Obama represents. This is exactly what Obama wants. Every decison he has made internationally and domestically points to that fact.But he lies and manipulates extremely well, with the help of the MSM.Its not someone who is “unqualified and inexperienced, “ a myth his handlers have wanted to perpetrate ( forgive our green black boy...... etc......race card here, race card there....).

This is why Former Sec. Def. Gates has written his book full of warnings about Obama.

During WW2, The Socialist FDR Administration instituted wage and price controls on American Companies.

Companies could not raise wages, but they could increase benefits to attract workers that they wanted.

Hence, Companies started offering Medical Insurance to keep present employees, and to attract new employees.

Now our Socialized Society considers it a “right” for an employee, and their dependents to have part or all of their medical insurance paid for by the company that they work for.

So much for the millstone burden of a bad WW2 edict from FDR.

One great thing that could come out of the total collapse of CommieObamaCare is that ONLY the citizen is responsible for any insurance product that they choose to buy.

Thus, allowing Companies to lower the price of their goods and services to the customers by the amount that they had been paying for insurance for their employees, and their dependents.

____________

In similar manner, the Socialist Labor Union Movement in the late 1800’s, and the Socialized FDR Wage Controls of WW2 have produced the relics of Minimum Wage Control and Governmental Labor rules that shackle the productivity of our Society.

Ronald Reagan was fond of saying “Businesses do not pay taxes, because consumers pay all the taxes.”

A business forced by an oppressive Government to pay a higher minimum wage to their workers will simply pass that additional expense on to the consumer in the form of higher prices.
_______________________

None of the above will make any sense to the true believers in the Obama Plantation, headquartered at 1600 Plantation Avenue, Washington, District of Corruption.

BTW, is there any truth to the rumor that the Potomac River will soon have its name changed to De Nile River?
