Ted Cruz and Dianne Feinstein had this explosive exchange at a Senate Judiciary Hearing on guns earlier today:

“Could Leahy have been any more condescending with his assinine remarks about books and the Texas board of education??
Then isnt he ADMITTING that the SATES can do so but the federal government CANNOT.....”
Excellent point. Too bad Cruz didn’t seize on that.
Every time I see Ted Cruz, I like him even more than I already did.
And, yes, DiFi, you DO need to be schooled in the constitution. You and all of your Marxist statist cohorts. RINOs, too.
Turban Durban must be thinking “fire in a crowded theater” first amendment concepts.
limited means you don’t swing a dead cat in a crowd, not peacefully carry the dead cat to the pet cemetary.
Think of how radical the SAFFERS of these evil people must be.
the staffers should be identified front and center.
That’s SENATOR old hag to you.
I’m sure Lindsey Graham was offended that the qeustion was even asked!
“Equally chilling is Turban Durbins statement that these rights ARE NOT absolute”
Needs to be sent to a re-education camp.
How dare this upstart newbie lecture a veteran Senator with 20 years experience in subverting the constitution? Throw the naive newbie bum out! That’s just not the way we do things in this deliberative body. Constitution? Get real.
Durbin: “None of these rights are absolute.”
Thomas Jefferson would put a nasty ass-whuppin on this idiot. John Adams would look on in approval and not intervene.
is carrying this live.
turbin durbin is attempting to counter the self defese stories put into the record with a chicago story of the police killing a deaf old man who did not drop an “assault weapon” (not specified)
the democrats are 100% douchebags at this feinstien kabuki show. nra.org should stream this.
Diane Fineswine reminds me of the classical actress Margaret Dumont in the Marx Brothers movies. Dumont was the pretentious woman who was the butt of Groucho’s double entendres. When they were filming the movies Groucho made sure that she did not have the right script and she was shocked that Groucho and Chico had the nerve and audacity to not treat her like royalty. Fineswine is a rich itchbay.
“I’m not a 6th grader! ...I’ve been here 20 years!”
Reminds me of this:
Senator Barbara Boxer: “Don’t Call Me Ma’am” - General Michael Walsh
To Feinstein, the 1st and 4th Amendmant, the “right of the people”, can be interpreted.
Yet, the right of the people specified in the ^5th Amendment^ (ref AZSB 1070) for persons of olive complexion that speak with an accent (like...ummmm...Ted Cruz) is sacrosanct and will not be infringed (as long as they can verify they vote Dhimmicrat).
Doesn’t Mrs. Feinstein look tired?
As though that gives her some special 'insight' not obvious to the masses into the meaning of the people's rights........Puhleeeeeeze. That monotone, uppity dishrag should be dragged from chambers by her ear and thrown to the very people whose rights she thinks so little of violating.
chuck shumer with his rictus smile is saying he supports the second amendmentment but OTHER supporters are not interpriting the constitution correctly.
IOW ructus shumer is saying all the first 9 amendments are about individual rights EXCEPT the second (and the supreme court was wrong in heller)
DiFi went to the Hillary Clinton School of Use Indignant Outrage If You Can’t Answer The Question.....
I hope he drops this on her too. You do realize Senator Feinstein, that after the 2nd Amendment is nullified, that the rest of the Amendments will promptly follow? So, after the 2nd Amendment is nullified, which other Amendment will you start to destroy?
20 years there?, Mrs. Feinstein does look tired.
Ping to B2 for use of the tag-line.
she’s no 6th grader, she’s not smarter than a 5th grader either...
I liked how Cruz didn’t even flinch while she waxed indignent.
Heh forgot to add this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixiYZ9DPk8o
Just think for a moment where the “Gun Control Debate” would be if Senator Cruz wasn’t there.
The Republicans would be helping the Rats pick out which Gun looked the scariest to add to the Assault Gun Ban Listing.
God Bless the Voters in Texas for electing Senator Cruz.
Leaky Leahey just said he has been in the senate 38 years and tried to use that to insult newcomer Cruz.
essentially leaky leahey said “this should pass because I SAID SO sonny boy”
Democrats have no substance. everyone looks like they know this is going nowhere and the democrats look like they are calculating to trick a floor pass.
REMEMBER 2014 starts NOW.
:: Im not a 6th grader! ...Ive been here 20 years! ::
The proper response by Cruz: “I am open to correction by you and the full body but, when the Senate records votes, there is no “gravity of authority” difference between my vote and yours?
Who is for more background checks?
- Eric Cantor
- Paul Ryan
Defining child pornography is easy....defining "assault weapon" is not. Feinstein is just a gun grabber.... Equating gun ownership with porn is laughable.
The rights are not absolute — yelling ‘Fire!’ in a crowded theater, child porn, etc.
I like that Cruz is standing up to her but he probably won’t win the argument based on this line of reasoning.
8:13 am in stream or is it 58:31 minutes in the stream. Shummer is having a heated discussion on the side.
the D talking is begging for a split vote on the aw ban from the magazine ban. He thinks there is more than 60 on that.
NOBODY is discussing the fact that now a “cuomo” thirty round clip can be 3d printed ON YOUR DESKTOP 3d printer! (2,200 dollar printer)
More like “Senator, I’m not as smart as a 6th-grader”.
This could have easily backfired on Cruz if Feinswine had the smarts to say “child porn books” on her first try instead of blustering and “making several points in response” (rather than answering his question)
In fact it may have given them their next talking point “We can all agree on banning CERTAIN books and we can all agree on banning certain guns”
But I am glad whe was not smart enough- she came off looking stupid
Don’t worry, soon someone here in the name of conservatism will take him down for the RINO he is. /s ;-)
“Equally chilling is Turban Durbins statement that these rights ARE NOT absolute.”
Since these rights are bestowed by God, perhaps Feinstein and Durban should talk to Him before making any comments.
The proper response by Cruz:
The problem is allowing the dems to frame the debate by dragging in the strawman of kiddie porn. He should make the filthy hag explain to explain that analogy - i.e. in what way is it okay for the military and the police exercise their right to keep and bear kiddie porn. If cops and soldiers can't stand around watching kiddie porn, then they can't be trusted to have even semi-autos like the AR-15 nor magazines over 7 rounds.
Okay, have it their way. We can ban all guns with child porn on them.
NO Feinstein I DO NOT respect your views! And do not lie and say you respect other views because you don’t!
Yes...for us that have a patriotic understanding of the BoR. it’s the “low-information voter” [TM, Rush Limbaugh] that actually understand it the other way.
Their limited union-based background leads them to understand that longevity leads to seniority and seniority to authority.
:: if Feinswine had the smarts to say child porn books ::
Actually, even that media is protected by DF and the Dhimmicrats. Go to the public library internet bank in your town and browse the cookie cache.
Like Harriet Jones?
Thanks, gotta order this one.
Cruz is one of the few I donated $ to and didn’t regret it.
when is somebody going to insist we revisit Miller ???
Pat Leahy is mumbling and incoherent and tries to “save” Feinstein. Feinstein is senile old moonbat ...nice to see her buttons pushed
