Republican HATE, FEAR, LOATHING – ‘Ted Cruz introduces bill to leave marriage to the states’

 

gay

ted cruz anti marriage bill

‘Equal Protection Under The Law’

That’s the Federal standard. The Constitution gives us ALL that right.

Ted Cruz want’s to take that right and let each State decide who get’s (cough) ‘equal protection’.

That way you could be arrested, jailed and convicted of a crime when you travel from one State to another.

America…….The Republican Version.

‘Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is calling on his colleagues to pass a bill that would make same sex marriage a state issue’.

‘Cruz, along with 11 other Republican senators, re-introduced the State Marriage Defense Act on Tuesday, which aims to allow states to adopt their own definitions of marriage and would block the federal government from applying its own definition of marriage onto states’.

‘He added, “I support traditional marriage and we should reject attempts by the Obama Administration to force same-sex marriage on all 50 states. The State Marriage Defense Act helps safeguard the ability of states to preserve traditional marriage for their citizens.”

‘The bill would force federal government to rely on state law to determine whether couples are considered to be married for the purposes for federal law’.

And there goes the Supremecy Clause……

‘Article VI, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution is known as the Supremacy Clause because it provides that the “Constitution, and the Laws of the United States … shall be the supreme Law of the Land.” It means that the federal government, in exercising any of the powers enumerated in the Constitution, must prevail over any conflicting or inconsistent state exercise of power‘.(1)

Holding America Hostage – ‘Cruz: Block Lynch until Obama blinks on immigration’

obstructionist ted cruz

The United States doesn’t need an Attorney General according to Republican Ted Cruz.

And AMerica can have an Attorney General just as soon as Obama gives in to what the Republicans want.

And it has nothing to do with the Attorney General.

‘Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is demanding that Republicans block the nomination of Loretta Lynch as attorney general until President Barack Obama relents on his immigration policies’.

The likely presidential candidate said in an interview Tuesday that Republicans should use “every procedural tool” to block Obama’s move to defer deportations for roughly 5 million undocumented immigrants — calling on the GOP-led Senate Judiciary Committee to block her nomination and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to deny her a confirmation vote on the floor’.

Corruption – How Republicans Will Govern – ‘Ted Cruz To Introduce Constitutional Amendment Banning Gay Marriage’

gay

ted cruz

Our Constitution assures a separation of powers.

Congress passes laws.

The Executive enforces laws and the Courts
interpret laws.

Ted Cruz wants all the power…..

Ted Cruz wants to make it Unconstitutional for the Supreme Court to interpret if a State law is Constitutional.

WTF2

‘While President Obama hailed same sex marriage
equality as a “story of freedom” and “a civil
right,” Cruz took the opposite opinion':

“That is why I have introduced legislation, S.
2024, to protect the authority of state
legislatures to define marriage. And that is why,
when Congress returns to session, I will be
introducing a constitutional amendment to prevent
the federal government or the courts from
attacking or striking down state marriage laws.”

Why It’s Called ‘The Stupid Party’ – ‘OOPSIE: Ted Cruz Accidentally Posts Embarrassing First Take Of His SOTU Response’

ted cruz sotu

‘Ted Cruz decided he would be one of those know-it-all Republicans that would make his own video, because of course citizens want to hear from their favorite Canadian-born Senator’.

‘Here’s the thing though, he flubbed it. He flubbed it so bad he needed to start over. It was so bad it was starting to resemble a bad audition reel. So bad, in fact, that he had his staff delete it completely off YouTube’.

‘But doesn’t Cruz know the internet at all? It seems some folks were able to snag it for all of our viewing displeasure pleasure’.

How Republicans Will Govern – ‘Republicans Appoint Scientifically Illiterate Ted Cruz To Oversee NASA

ted cruz25

cruz on science

‘Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a man who doesn’t believe climate change is real and who’s dad recently claimed evolution was a communist lie to “convince you that you came from a monkey” as a way to disprove God, will now oversee the subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness, including NASA. We’re screwed’.

cruz on science1

‘In 2013, Cruz tried to slash funding to the space agency by sneaking an amendment into a spending authorization bill’.

‘Much of the research NASA has been conducting – from space and here on earth – has been focused on the devastating effects of climate change’.

‘Arguably, it’s the most important research of the 21st century, because those effects will have dire consequences for people and the planet in the decades to come’.

‘But the terrifying thing is this: Cruz doesn’t believe any of it’.

‘Unlike many of his conservative colleagues, Cruz doesn’t just believe climate change isn’t man-made, he doesn’t think it’s happening at all’.

‘In an interview with CNN last year, he was certain that he was right':

“The last 15 years, there has been no recorded warming. Contrary to all the theories that they are expounding, there should have been warming over the last 15 years. It hasn’t happened,” said Cruz’.

‘Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in an op-ed published on Wednesday laid out his plan to fight President Obama’s upcoming executive action on immigration, saying the Senate should block the president’s nominees and use its spending power to limit Obama’s authority’.

“Congress, representing the voice of the People, should use every tool available to prevent the President from subverting the rule of law,” the possible 2016 presidential candidate wrote in Politico Magazine’.

If the President announces executive amnesty, the new Senate Majority Leader who takes over in January should announce that the 114th Congress will not confirm a single nominee — executive or judicial — outside of vital national security positions, so long as the illegal amnesty persists,” Cruz wrote’.

But It’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘Sens. Cruz, Lee pledge to block lame-duck bills’

Don’t vote.

Let the Republicans take control of the Senate.

This is the America you’ll get…..

—————-

‘Two GOP senators have vowed to stall any nonemergency
legislation taken up in the lame-duck session later this year’.

Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) warned
Democrats that trying to muscle through any substantial
legislation after the midterm elections would do lasting harm
to the chamber. They said they would vote against any unanimous
consent agreements on nonemergency legislation after Election
Day’.

Cruz is also publically pushing his House colleagues to oppose
a continuing resolution to fund the government until mid-
December, which would require lawmakers to reconvene after the
election’.

“Americans cannot trust politicians they can no longer hold
accountable at the ballot box,” Cruz said in a statement
Wednesday night. “The Continuing Resolution should, at a
minimum, fund government operations until after the new
Congress is sworn in next year.”

‘Shock And Awe Returns: Cruz Wants To Bomb ISIS To ‘Stone Age’ With With ‘Overwhelming Air Campaign’

ted cruz

And the inncocent civilians that we ‘bomb back to the stone
age’ while trying to target on ISIS fighters?

Too bad?

Collateral damage?

Sucks to be them?

——————–

“Shock and Awe” is back, at least if Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has
his way’.

‘In an interview with ABC News, the Tea Party back Republican
suggested that the best foreign policy for dealing with the
Islamic militant group ISIS was to launch and “overwhelming air
campaign” to “bomb them back to the Stone Age.”

“What we ought to do is have a direct, concerted, overwhelming
air campaign to take them out,” Cruz told ABC’s Jeff Zeleny in
an interview that was broadcast on Sunday’.

‘Cruz suggested that the bombing campaign could even extend
into Syria, but “the objective should not be to resolve the
civil war” in that country’.
