Posted onJune 12, 2017byifnm|Comments Off on Ted Cruz Suggests U.S. Military Response to Mexican Cartels
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz suggested that the U.S. military should be used against Mexican transnational criminal groups (cartels). The statements were made during a one-on-one interview with the senator at the end of May at the Bayer Museum of Agriculture in Lubbock, Texas. The senator made clear that he was not suggesting unilateral U.S. military action in Mexico, but rather a cooperative effort, as seen in Colombia.
The portion of the interview pertaining to Mexican cartels follows.
BRANDON DARBY: One of the things that’s very interesting about Texas on the border, as you know, there’s nine sectors on the Southwest Border, five of which are in Texas. Part of the problem that we have in Texas is that two of the most brutal criminal groups south of the border, which actually operate north of the border as well, as you know, are Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel. But unlike most of the other criminal organizations in Mexico along our border, which would be Sinaloa, Juarez Cartel, Tijuana Cartel. Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel are extremely brutal. In fact, the videos they release resemble ISIS videos. We try to challenge them as much as possible, but what more could the U.S. do? There’s talk of declaring certain factions as foreign terror organizations so you could appropriately go after the money and the politicians. Again, Tamaulipas, a state below Texas, the last two governors are fugitives from U.S. justice for being surrogates of the Gulf Cartel. Several of the governors in Coahuila are now in trouble because they were Los Zetas. What more could the U.S. do to to challenge Mexican transnational criminal groups who operate in our country, who kill our kids? What could we do to challenge them?
SEN. TED CRUZ: We could do a great deal more. What has happened in the last decade with Mexican drug cartels has been nothing short of tragic. Mexico is a great and wonderful country. The Mexican people are wonderful people. Growing up in Texas, we spent a great deal of time in Mexico. Most Texans have long and deep commitments to Mexico. Whether family ties, or business ties, or cultural ties. Where Texans vacation in Mexico. Mexicans vacation in Texas.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill calling for the use of $14 billion seized from cartel drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to be used to pay for the President’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border,” Senator Cruz stated, according to a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas from the senator’s office. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.”
The Texas senator said that leveraging criminally forfeited assets from El Chapo and other Mexican cartel members and drug dealers can “offset the wall’s cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump’s stated border security objectives.”
Senator Cruz introduced the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act on Tuesday. “The U.S. Government is currently seeking the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits from El Chapo, the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel who was recently extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous alleged drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering,” Cruz stated.

In a statement to Breitbart News, former Alaska Governor and 2008 Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin weighed in on Senator Ted Cruz’s refusal to honor his pledge and endorse the GOP nominee Donald Trump.
Palin, whose endorsement of Cruz’s long-shot Senate bid in 2012 was credited by Cruz himself as the reason why he won the race that launched his national political career, gave the following statement to Breitbart after delegates booed Cruz off the stage at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night:
Turns out Ted Cruz’s partner, Carly Fiorina, had a more graceful exit from the political stage than he had.
Cruz’s broken pledge to support the will of the people tonight was one of those career-ending “read my lips” moments. I guarantee American voters took notice and felt more unsettling confirmation as to why we don’t much like typical politicians because they campaign one way, but act out another way. That kind of political status quo has got to go because it got us into the mess we’re in with America’s bankrupt budgets and ramped up security threats.

Phyllis Schlafly: ‘Overwhelming majority of convicted terrorists came as immigrants, refugees’
When an ISIS-supporting Muslim named Omar Mateen massacred 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando on June 12, Donald Trump reminded Americans that he is still the only political candidate to support a pause in the massive flow of Muslims entering the United States. Trump made his proposal last December after another ISIS-supporting Muslim massacred 14 people at an office Christmas party in San Bernardino, California.
Trump said his Muslim ban would be temporary.
“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses,” he said, “our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad.”
Trump’s reasonable, commonsense proposal was immediately condemned or disavowed by other presidential candidates in both parties. Even Sen. Ted Cruz said he disagreed with it, though he didn’t say why.
Now that Cruz has returned to his “day job” as U.S. senator from Texas, he recently co-authored a new report with Sen. Jeff Sessions that provides powerful support for Trump’s position. The report issued June 22 shows that the overwhelming majority of convicted terrorists came into our country as immigrants or refugees from Muslim countries.
Cruz and Sessions were able to determine the birthplace of 451 of the 580 individuals who were convicted of terrorism since the 9/11 attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Some 380 of the 451, or 84 percent, of these terrorists, were foreign born – and most of them came from Muslim-majority countries such Pakistan, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan.

In this week’s Analysis Behind the News video, JBS Vice President of Communications Bill Hahn discusses the power of the media’s manipulation. Specifically, Hahn addresses the Boston Globe’s hyperbolic portrayal of a hypothetical Donald Trump presidency in 2017 and another editorial article describing a potential Ted Cruz administration as “apocalyptic.” With the editorial boards and departments of so many mainstream media outlets being heavily left-wing what effect does this have on the “unbiased news” they purport to deliver?

Posted onApril 27, 2016byifnm|Comments Off on Victims of Alien Crime: Cruz Commits ‘Treason’ in Alliance with Kasich
Certain American victims of illegal alien crime say Sen. Ted Cruz should be “charged with treason” for his decision to team up with pro-amnesty Governor John Kasich in order to nullify the votes of Donald Trump supporters.
“They both ought to be charged with treason,” said Billy Inman, whose son 16-year-old Dustin was murdered while he and his family were on their way to celebrate an early Father’s Day family fishing trip. An illegal alien rear-ended the family’s vehicle at over 60 mph. His son’s murderer is still roaming free.
“Their teaming up should ruin Ted Cruz’s career,” said Cruz constituent Laura Wilkerson whose 18-year-old son Joshua was tied up, beaten, strangled, set on fire, and tortured to death by his illegal alien classmate.
“Who do they think they are trying to silence us?” asked Mary Ann Mendoza, whose 32-year-old son, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, was murdered by a drunk illegal alien who had been driving the wrong way down a freeway with a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit.
“If Republicans wanted either Cruz or Kasich as a candidate, they would be voting for them,” Mendoza said. Instead “the two of them are trying to bully their OWN mindset on us. Republican voters are voting for the person they feel will make our country great again. Something like this has got to make people wonder, why are these career politicians so afraid of Mr. Trump?”

“Despite what you may have read, I’ve never endorsed Donald Trump. I’ve endorsed no one. I support Trump and Cruz, and I will support whomever the GOP nominee is. I can’t support a communist or a felon which would be Bernie and Hillary. I still believe this is America, not the Planet of the Apes Cuckoo’s Nest Clockwork Orange.”
Ted Nugent speaks his mind, and he had a lot to say in a candid interview with me.
The 67 year old Michigan native will be at Freedom Hill Amphitheatre on Friday, August 26, 2016 at 7:30pm. Brownsville Station will open for him.
He’s sold more than 40 million albums and performed more than 6,500 shows in his career with no signs of slowing down, despite only being able to hear out of one ear.
“I was the Lewis and Clark of garage band exploration. I always wanted to play loud because I loved the way the guitar fed back.”
“By the time I was 12 or 13 I had a band in Detroit called The Lourds. We won the battle of the bands and opened for The Supremes at Cobo Hall in 1963. I was already playing so loud and getting so close to the amp, that I would stick cigarette butts from the other guys in my right ear. In order to get the feedback, I would kneel down right there in front of the speakers. I put makeshift earplugs because it hurt to get that close. Thank God I did that.”
“Nowadays, I do wear ear protection valves on stage. I also don’t play anywhere near loud as I used to.”
Posted onApril 26, 2016byifnm|Comments Off on Phyllis Schlafly’s Last Stand: The Inside Story of the Conservative Icon’s Internal Battle for Survival
Allies of Sen. Ted Cruz are now targeting conservative legend Phyllis Schlafly, a leading grassroots anti-establishment voice for half a century, because Schlafly endorsed billionaire businessman Donald Trump for president in the 2016 GOP primary.
Several Cruz supporters inside Eagle Forum are unhappy with Phyllis Schlafly’s Trump endorsement, and have been working behind the scenes against her for months. They have leaked emails, engaged in personal attacks, and even advanced an argument questioning whether the 91-year-old Schlafly is still competent enough to run the organization. Now, several board members of one wing of the tripartite Eagle Forum organization have for the first time in more than four decades of existence called together a special board meeting at which they purported to have voted to remove Schlafly’s handpicked successor as president of the organization and claim to have seized control of the organization and its bank accounts from the longtime activist.
They might not be done yet, as they have another special meeting scheduled for early May at which they intend to—sources say—remove Schlafly herself as chairman of the board. What’s more, Schlafly’s own daughter, Anne Cori, has sided with the other Cruz supporters inside Eagle Forum against her mother, creating a divide inside the family as Phyllis and her other children, including son Andy, back Trump over Cruz in the 2016 primary. Cori admits that her actions run counter to her mother’s wishes, but says she is acting out of “love” for her mother.

Pat Buchanan on delegate process: ‘Like the 1919 World Series, the fix is in’
Donald Trump has brought out the largest crowds in the history of primaries. He has won the most victories, the most delegates, the most votes. He is poised to sweep three of the five largest states in the nation – New York, Pennsylvania and California.
If he does, and the nomination is taken from him, the Republican Party will be seen by the American people as a glorified Chinese tong.
Last week, Ted Cruz swept 34 delegates at the Colorado party convention. Attendees were not allowed to vote on whom they wanted as the party’s nominee.
This weekend, Cruz shut out Trump in Wyoming the same way.
What does this tell us? Cruz has a better “ground game.” His operatives work the system better. Ted Cruz is the king of small ball.
But having gone head-to-head in some 30 primaries and caucuses, Cruz has fallen millions of votes behind Trump, and will fall millions further behind after New York, Pennsylvania and California.
Cruz will soon join John Kasich in being mathematically eliminated from winning the nomination on the first ballot. His fallback strategy is to keep Trump just short of the 1,237 votes needed for victory on the first ballot, and then steal the nomination on the second.
I watch Hollywood awards ceremonies where a supposed artist screams out for punching people in the face for political disagreements, and the entire horde of Botoxed brain zombies leaps to their feet in an ungodly and unholy howl of rampant bloodlust approval.
“We can call it Cultural Marxism, but at the end of the day, we experience it on a day to day basis, by that I mean a minute by minute, second by second basis. It’s political correctness and it’s multiculturalism.” – Andrew Breitbart
