    SENATOR Ted Cruz is calling for a criminal investigation into Twitter for potentially "violating US sanctions against Iran." Cruz asked for the investigation in a letter to the Justice and Treasury departments on Friday. In February, Cruz wrote a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to ask him to stop providing social media services to Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Now, the senator is calling on Attorney General William Barr and Secretary Steve Mnuchin to "take action." In Friday's letter, Cruz wrote: "I believe that the primary goal of (the International Emergency Economic...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough apologized after trading Twitter insults with Republican Sen. Ted Cruz over a misleading Jimmy Kimmel video that mocked Vice President Mike Pence. “About last night: I gotta work on some things myself,” Mr. Scarborough tweeted Saturday. “I feel really bad about retweeting the Jimmy Kimmel video. I feel worse about being provoked. I apologize again to Mike Pence, to my Twitter followers, and to Ted. I’ve got to do better.”
  • Ted Cruz Compares Joe Scarborough To A ‘Teenage Girl Throwing Her Panties At The Latest Boy Band’

    Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz fired back Friday at MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, comparing the “Morning Joe” host to a “teenage girl throwing her panties at the latest boy band.” The exchange began when Scarborough, along with a number of others, shared a deceptively-edited video of Vice President Mike Pence from late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel. The video made it appear as though Pence was pretending to deliver medical supplies into a Virginia nursing home while he really only carried empty boxes — but Pence actually did take part in delivering the supplies.
  • Ted Cruz feuds with Joe Scarborough, says host chased Trump 'like a teenage girl throwing her panties at a boy band'

    Fox News ^ | May 08 2020
    Things got pretty ugly on Twitter between Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas., and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough over their evolving attitudes toward President Trump. The feud began after Scarborough shared a now-debunked video originally created by Jimmy Kimmel depicting Vice President Mike Pence carrying "empty" boxes of PPE into a hospital supposedly for just a photo-op. However, fuller footage from C-SPAN showed Pence helping out with full boxes of PPE and later jokingly asked that the remaining boxes, which were empty, could be used "just for the camera." Scarborough shared the video, not knowing that Twitter labeled it as "manipulated media,"...

    “We’re thrilled to be with you and know the whole State of Texas is standing with you, so thank you for your courage,” Cruz told Luther. Cruz told Luther he hasn’t had a haircut in about three months, and that his wife Heidi even warned he would “start bringing mullets back,” if he didn’t do something soon. At one point during his visit, Luther started crying, thanking Cruz for his support, “When people reach out with true authenticity, it’s huge,” she said. Luther told CBS 11 News, “It’s a nice gesture. His family actually called my boyfriend and prayed for...

    SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – San Antonio City Council has approved a resolution ‘combating hate speech’ in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Mayor Ron Nirenberg proposed the resolution, citing hate crimes, discrimination and aggression against Asians and members of the Jewish community across the country. It states that COVID-19 is a public health issue, not a racial, religious or ethnic one, and that the use of terms such as “Chinese virus” or “Kung Fu virus” encourages hate crimes against Asians. The resolution also says the Jewish community has been targeted with blame and conspiracy theories about spreading COVID_19 and...

    My RedState colleague Bonchie wrote over the weekend about the ridiculous suggestion made by the New York Times editorial board that the Democratic National Committee appoint an “unbiased, apolitical panel” to conduct an investigation into Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against their presumptive 2020 presidential nominee Joe Biden. Just to recap for those who missed it, here’s what the paper had the audacity to publish (bolded emphasis added): His campaign, and his party, have a duty to assure the public that the accusations are being taken seriously. The Democratic National Committee should move to investigate the matter swiftly and thoroughly,...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has urged administration officials to support the development of a fully domestic rare earths supply chain and to reduce U.S. dependence on China for minerals essential for defense technologies manufacturing. In letters written to Secretary of Defense Mark Esper (pdf) and Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt (pdf), Cruz, along with Senate colleagues, cautioned about the risk of relying on the Chinese Communist Party for rare earths, noting that the United States currently only has one operating rare earth mine and no domestic refining capacity. “It is clear that our dependence on China for vital rare...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is leading a bipartisan effort to wean the United States from its reliane on China for drugs and medical supplies by turning to Middle East ally Israel. Cruz and Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., are seeking $12 million to enhance partnerships between companies in the U.S. and Israel "to develop innovative medical projects aimed at detecting, treating, and curing COVID-19," Breaking Israel News reported. "I've long said that China poses the most significant, long-term geopolitical threat to the United States," Cruz wrote on Twitter. "Our dependence on China for life-saving medications and treatments is deeply problematic. The...

    Western democracies, especially the United States, just heaved a huge sigh of relief after getting word that United Kingdom PM Boris Johnson is dropping the controversial Chinese tech company, Huawei, as the nation's provider of 5G infrastructure. Although Johnson was in support of the Chinese tech giant laying the non-sensitive portions of 5G infrastructure, he said China's lack of transparency about coronavirus made the communist-run country untrustworthy. President Trump, Attorney General William Barr, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and members of the so-called "Five-Eyes" countries that share intelligence information, brought huge pressure on the Brits to dump Huawei. The U.S....

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz unloaded on his Democratic colleagues on Friday in response to Sen. Dianne Feinstein sending a letter to President Trump declaring that she is “disappointed” in his administration’s plan to block funding to the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, Iran. The Democrats’ demand of Trump to help Iran get $5 billion in aid, Cruz noted, comes “at the exact same time” that they are “blocking desperately need relief to small businesses in America.” In late March, a group of Democratic lawmakers — among them Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), and Rashida Tlaib (MI), and...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (ChurchMilitant.com) - Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is accusing North Carolina police of overstepping their bounds — even in the midst of the Wuhan virus scare — by arresting pro-life Christians as they prayed outside a Charlotte abortion facility. More and more pro-lifers around the country are being harassed and arrested for doing what is constitutionally protected activity, Cruz claims, which is praying and sidewalk counseling in front of killing centers. While in the midst of the Wuhan virus pandemic it is deemed "non-essential" to quietly protest the killing of innocent children, in many states the killing itself...

    Send in the clowns. There ought to be clowns. – Last week, two craven political hack governors – Steve Sisolak in Nevada and the detestable Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan – made the indefensible decision to deny their citizens the right to be treated with hydroxychloroquine for the Wuhan Virus. On Sunday, the FDA issued an emergency authorization to doctors to use that cheap, highly-effective drug across the United States. Today, the two circus clown Governors reversed their stupid edicts, now allowing those who contract the Virus in their states to be treated with the drugs. Better late than never. From...

    This is not an emergency virus bill. It is a Democratic election wish list, at a time hundreds are dying, thousands are losing their businesses, and millions are out of work in the United States. The weekend began with a bipartisan plan. People were hopeful. Outside of Washington, business owners told The Federalist they finally saw light in all the darkness. They thought they’d be able to hire their employees back again. These are employees who have families, mortgages, and lives, people who have never asked for public assistance in their lives and never thought they’d have to.The mood in...

    MSNBC’s on-air talent just can not seem to help themselves. MSNBC host of All In Chris Hayes sent out a flippant tweet in response to reports that the Trump administration will be asking Congress for “more than $800 billion in economic stimulus: $500 bil in payroll tax cut, $250 bil in Small Business Association loans, $58 billion for the airlines, and a smattering of other items." Hayes tweeted, “BREAKING: We can, of course, afford a Green New Deal. That’s been true all along.” He must have forgotten how much that monstrosity of an idea cost, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX),...
