An excellent speech from Sen. Tom Cruz, a must watch!

is both for Liberty, small government, capitalism, and pro-Israel. That does not sit well among anti-Semites who themselves do not understand Ron Paul's stance and Libertarian idea itself.
Ron Paul is the best friend of Israel. Cutting US aid to ALL and weakening UN will benefit Israel. Free-market capitalism will also benefit Jews and Israel, NOT anti-Semites, populists, socialists or people promoting Sharia Law.
just thought i'd point that out considering the abuse ll gets on here.
"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."
but voted to confirm him. I dont like that. But i'll still support Rand
Cruz voted against Kerry, i appreciate that.
"Reprinted in light of yesterday's brutal showing of force by the Jewish Lobby at the confirmation hearing of Chuck Hagel. The most noxious and corrupted of the Senators grilling Hagel is the clown from Texas, Chickenhawk Ted Cruz."
this is an idiotic blog.
First off, i disagree with Cruz on his stance against Hagel. But Hagel did himself no favor when he fails at defending himself.
but to call him a "chickenhawk" is false, he wasn't of the draft generation and there's no evidence that he ever pursued his educational efforts to avoid joining the military.
and to call him a parasite is plain ad hominem.
please, find a more productive means to criticize the man. You will not like all his positions, but trashing him won't win you or whatever side that hack is on any friends.
The one thing that i cant let go, is when cruz was critizising hagel for not sticking up for america when hagel was read a public opinion letter critizising america......
That tells me, he endorses everything the us g does or has done ...i dont see that as an over generalization, if you dont agree, you speak up, as is your right, when you dont speak up, then you endorse, not only does he not speak against us g actions, he is inforcing it in public opinion, i can only hope, because of his beliefs, and not the rupee
Either way, cruz would have to go through a liberty awakening, fight for the right things, stop endorsing the bad, be damn the consequence, if the truth it be
Your response was rather quick.
It would appear you have the same talents as Mr Cruz. The ability to speak from both end of your mouth!
"Cruz's wife is currently head for the Southwest Region in the Investment Management Division of Goldman, Sachs & Co.
Isn't that special? :)
Since Cruz is a Southern Baptist, israhell's interest over America is a must. "
I Disagree with Cruz on this issue, but there is no evidence that he is a chickenhawk, he is too young and pursued an academic route in life...with no evidence that he did it as a means to avoid military service.
The slate article only shows that hagel called it a "sickening slaughter" on both sides. Cruz was just arguing that that included calling what Israel did a "sickening slaughter" and so he disagreed and rejected that israel should even be considered to be committing a sickening slaughter.
He may be parsing words, but he isn't making a false argument.
and now you just, in an unrelated to the Hagel nomination, attack his wife and his religion. Cool story bro.
I am not defending the poster but, in my view, a chickenhawk strictly speaking is someone who does not join the military and put his own life on the line but is willing to send others in harm's way. If Cruz wants to commit us to the defense of Israel, he would seem to qualify. He's had every chance to join the military and walk the walk.
"the Mini Ruger 14 is exempt from Senator Feinstein's bill". The Mini Ruger 14 fires the same bullet, a .223 caliber, high velocity round. The only difference between a Mini 14 and an AR 15 is the plastic handle in front of the trigger. Both are semi Auto. Oh the stupidity of these moron's in Washington. Both rifles are center fire and are essentially the same thing.

I think he NAILED it!! Way to go on this one Ted! That said, am I the only one that saw him going all-out "Israel FIRST" during Hagel's hearing? Careful with the praise...grain of salt, ya know?
"We just marched in; we should JUST COME HOME."
"It's Trillions of dollars we're spending on these wars!!"
"THIS IS BIG STUFF!"
~Who else?? Ron Paul!!!
he may be "israel first" but he also is anti-UN as a means of jurisdiction on the USA.
Cruz is one of those that can argue very strongly and will either be your best friend or enemy on the issue.
Really wonderful, well thought out and planned speach, respectful, full of integrity, THANK YOU Ted Cruz for THRUTH, JUSTICE and FREEDOM.
STAND WITH RAND 2016
Panderers. Telling you what you want to hear.
If you believe in Government then you're going in circles.
We need to deregulate machine guns too. I don't want the government to shoot at me with rapid fire guns while I am confined to a semi-automatic.
for the common good.
Politicians think their citizens are stupid and easily fooled by the use of words like "Semi Auto" and "Assault" to band weapons simply based on their cosmetic appearance.

for the reactionary politicians.
Doubt if they learned anything.
most of those pukes already know of all of these facts. They don't care. They are not trying to take our guns because of public safety. They have all the stats, they know. They want to take our guns, because THEY want to feel safe after they trample the rest of our rights for their agendas. THEY are afraid of US and they are especially afraid of us when we are armed. That is the only reason.
I want to cruise past this loser Cruz.
Cruz is endorsed by LibertyPac if I am not mistaken.....For better or worse. When I say kinds of people, I mean neoconish, establishment-ish types.
Cruz and people like him are good on some issues but terrible on others. I suspect we are going to see plenty more of these types. We need to be careful and identify the ones that are just trying to ride Dr Pauls coat tails, and the ones that are genuine and do truly share common ground with us (not saying common ground is enough to endorse them).
Cruz is better then many on the 2nd amendment but showed he is also a neocon on foreign policy. Just look at his Hagel video.
Not sure what to make of all this yet. Is this an attempt to infiltrate and take over the movement by more establishment types?
Is this an attempt to find common ground to defeat a bigger enemy in the Obamas, Pelosi, berneke types?
How should we react? My knee jerk reaction is to tell these folks to pi$$ off and stop tainting the movement with their warmongering and statism. But I also think our common ground can be means for us to infiltrate them and get them to come our way on issues....I'm still on the fence about all this. They've treated us like garbage in the past. To me Rand Paul is at the center of all this. Should we use this "bridge" or should we further entrench ourselves. Will an alliance with these people mean we have to compromise on our principals? I WILL NOT. We all know if we do get in bed further with these people it's not a matter of if, but when they will betray or do something we really dislike.
At this point in time, I want to vote for Rand in 2016. I want us to be able to infiltrate the establishment and change it for the better. I don't want to be fighting with people that would be good people had they not been mislead and indoctrinated....BUT I WON'T cause I know better not to trust them.
to defeat a bigger enemy. Cruz' Neocon posturing with Hegel annoyed me, but, Cruz isn't going to thwart Hegel's nomination. I'll take Cruz over ANY modern Democrat!
Anyone hear this Neocon smearing Hagel, an American twice wounded vet, to score points with the Israel lobby? Cruz, Lindsey Graham and Mccain are bigger enemies to the Liberty movement than any Liberal, regardless of standing with us on one or two issues. They despise Ron Paul and all we stand for. He is the worst type of disgrace.
His opposition to international organizations shows that he's not really a Neoconservative, but, he's a Neocon's best kind of ally - a willfully, ignorant idealist who thinks it's great that Americans have spilt more blood fighting in foreign lands than any other country on earth. I still support him because he's right on everything else, but, I thought it was kind of suspicious that he had zero references to his foreign policy positions on his campaign website.
after I get time to watch Cruz' tantrum against Hegel.
when many have regularly criticized John McCain. When the shoe's on the other foot, it's easy to call out McCain as the Neocon he is.
Diane Feinstien and "Big Sis" need to beware of the boomarang effect. lol
FYI, Feinstien was recently listed in an article naming "12 elected officials that should be in prison". This is what was said about her:
Possibly the most hated woman in Congress right now, Dianne Feinstein has made no bones about her mission to disarm America.
The senior Senator from California was responsible for the 1995 Assault Weapons Ban and has just introduced a bill that would prohibit the manufacture or importation of 158 specific military-style “assault” rifles, ban magazines of more than 10 rounds and introduce a federal registry for all owners who currently possess the aforementioned weapons and magazines.
She has supported the extension of the unPatriot Act and was the co-sponsor of PIPA, one of several assaults on internet freedom.
Could anyone point me to a link showing the rest of the video, more specifically the following questions asked of Ted Cruz at the end of this particular video?
LIVE FREE OR DIE
Ive read the comments and they're surprising. He did a great job. When someone stands against us, you guys hate them for that. When they stand with us, you call them liars?
He is a sworn enemy of Liberty movement. He despises Ron Paul, and answers to the Israel lobby first and foremost. He is a true enemy to our country.
