(FreedomWire.org) – Senator Ted Cruz mocked Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm after she voiced support for the military to convert to an all-electric vehicle fleet.

Cruz’s comments came after Granholm told lawmakers during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing of the administration’s push for the EV military force.

Senator Joni Ernst inquired as to whether the administration supports the military’s adoption of an “EV fleet by 2030.”

“I do, and I think we can get there, as well,” Granholm replied.

“I do think that reducing our reliance on the volatility of globally traded fossil fuels where we know that global events like the war in Ukraine can jack up prices for people back home… does not contribute to energy security,” she added.

President Biden signed an executive order “further embedding environmental justice” into the mission of federal agencies.

The EO “makes clear that the pursuit of environmental justice is a duty of all executive branch agencies and should be incorporated into their missions.”

All well and good for some government departments. The five branches of the military, however?

There once was a time when it was the military’s job to win wars, not worry about the carbon emissions from their M1 Abrams tank.

Cruz fired off a snarky tweet as he shared the clip of Granholm saying she supports an all-electric vehicle fleet for our fighting men and women.

“It would be really convenient if the Russians and the Chinese communists would erect charging stations every 100 miles for the Biden EV tank,” he quipped.

It’s difficult not to assume that the military trying to rush conversion to an unreliable all-electric fleet as Granholm desires is a blatant effort to ensure we never win another conflict on the world stage.

(FreedomWire.org) – Republican lawmakers held President Joe Biden’s leftist nominee for the Federal Communications Commission to task this week for woke, inflammatory, and censorious remarks she has made in the past, putting her ability to govern fairly or competently in question.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) scrutinized Gigi Sohn for several remarks she has made, in some cases swapping out the racial groups she saw fit to denigrate for others in order to ascertain whether they were similarly unacceptable in slightly altered contexts.

Vance noted in his preamble that while he agreed with some of Sohn’s positions, of special concern to him was her participation in “this weird racialization of American political rhetoric in the last few years.”

“There’s been this weird trend in certain corners of American politics to be very, very racialized and even to criticize explicit racial groups,” said Vance.

The senator from Ohio then provided a number of Sohn’s tweets, albeit in modified forms to highlight their partisan and identitarian nature.

“And I quote, ‘President Obama is a raggedy black supremacist president and his cowardly enablers would rather kill everybody than stop killing white people,'” said Vance. “Do you think a person that said that should be appointed or confirmed to the FCC?”

When Sohn responded by suggesting more context was needed, Vance added, “I think clearly a person who said that should not be appointed to the FCC, and in fact, you retweeted the exact same thing, only with President Trump instead of President Obama, and the races reversed.”

As Vance indicated, in June 2020, Sohn retweeted a post from actress Issa Rae, which read, “Your raggedy white supremacist president and his cowardly enablers would rather kill everybody than stop killing black people.”

Again, Vance gauged whether the racially charged rhetoric Sohn has dealt in would be acceptable, first, if the races were changed, and second, for a prospective FCC commissioner to be on record as writing.

“‘Angry black woman. Not a good look, Judge Brown Jackson,'” said Vance. “Would a person who tweeted that pejoratively be deserving of the position that you’re seeking?”

Sohn recognized the rhetoric as her own, only slightly changed, and claimed it had nothing to do with the FCC role she is seeking.

Contrary to Sohn’s claim, Vance suggested that her past racist remarks were relevant because “we live in a country that’s very diverse. People come from different backgrounds. And one of the things that preserves what little racial comity and harmony we have in this country is that our leaders don’t use that racial comity and harmony like a toddler who discovered their daddy’s gun.”

Vance continued, saying, “You talk about racial issues in a way that will inflame the very worst things in our country. And I fear that if you’re given this position of authority, you will use that authority to continue to inflame and to continue, potentially even, to censor based on some of these ideas.”

While Sohn contended that she had made the remarks as an activist or as a private citizen, and that they had no bearing on how she would act as an FCC commissioner, Vance suggested her racist statements nevertheless revealed “something about how you see the world, how you think about the world, and how you feel about the world. … They are reflective of a person who will have a lot of power.”

Republicans appear unified in their concerns about Sohn’s ideological capture and her capacity to abuse that power.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) stated Tuesday, “We know enough from today’s extreme left what happens when power is put in the wrong hands. It doesn’t take much to imagine a partisan FCC going down a dark path in attempting to censor what we see, hear, read, and ultimately think. As such, our responsibility as senators is to make sure an FCC nominee not only has the expertise to be an independent regulator, but also possess good judgment and temperament. The nominee must be fair, ethical, and perhaps most importantly, honest.”

“On all these fronts, Gigi Sohn fails,” Cruz noted.

Cruz suggested that Sohn has “displayed bad judgment and poor ethics” and has “associated herself with the most radical views on the far left.”

The Republican senator from Texas added, “If Ms. Sohn’s brazen theft of intellectual property, lack of candor, and conflicts of interest weren’t disqualifying on their own, then her long record of poor judgment should seal her fate. … Putting Ms. Sohn on the Commission would create deep mistrust of the FCC amongst half our population.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Former Rep. Adam Kinzinger called out Republican lawmakers on Twitter, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) unloaded on him.

With footage being released, showing the husband of former Speaker Nancy Pelosi being hit with a hammer by 42-year-old assailant David DePape , Kinzinger boosted a tweet by the left-leaning Seattle Times showing Republicans who the paper claimed spoke ill of Mr. Pelosi after the unfortunate attack.

“Thanks Seattle Times for this list of people who made fun of Paul Pelosi. Hold them accountable,” tweeted the ex-lawmaker who now draws a paycheck from CNN as a member of the small army of mostly ultra-partisan Democratic party hacks and propagandists at the self-proclaimed “most trusted” name in news.

Kinzinger was immediately called out by one of those who was on the Seattle Times’ hit list, Senator Ted Cruz who unloaded on him for his pathetic and dishonest effort to get attention.

“You’re a hack & a liar,” wrote the Texas Republican, turning up his Twitter flamethrower to high, “The day this happened I said it was a horrific violent attack & I was praying for the Pelosi family.”

“What I mocked was the dishonest media (like you) that falsely painted the attacker as a MAGA Trumpster instead of a deranged hippie nudist Leftist,” Cruz said, seeking to set the record straight by calling out the crying liar and turncoat.

Cruz was spot-on, reminding “Adam Kinzinger #fella” of the hysterical story put forth by Democrats and their narrative engineers in the activist that DePape’s attack on Pelosi was politically motivated in order to smear Trump supporters and America first conservatives as dangerous terrorists in the days leading up to the midterm elections despite his past behavior that was consistent with left-wing ideology including a propensity for nudity.

Arthur Schwartz also went after Kinzinger, pointing out the hypocrisy.

“Did you demand that Pelosi’s daughter be held accountable (whatever that means) when she made light of the attack on Rand Paul? No, of course you didn’t. Because everything about you is fake — especially your outrage. You ridiculous midget crybaby,” wrote user Arthur Schwartz, calling out Kinzinger’s selective outrage with a tweet by Pelosi’s daughter who praised the vicious attack on Sen. Rand Paul by a neighbor who severely injured him with an unprovoked, vicious blindside tackle while he was mowing the lawn at his Kentucky home in 2017.

(FreedomWire.org) – Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said on Wednesday that the FBI should search Hunter Biden’s home and business for possible classified documents.

Cruz made the comments during his “Verdict” podcast on Wednesday, which comes after classified documents were found at President Biden’s private office at the Penn Biden Center and Wilmington, Delaware home.

“It’s not just Joe Biden’s Senate files at the University of Delaware that the FBI needs to search. It’s CRITICAL that the FBI searches Hunter Biden’s home & office locations given the vast evidence of corruption involving Hunter & Joe,” Sen. Cruz tweeted, linking to the latest episode of his “Verdict with Ted Cruz” podcast.

“I think it is critical that the FBI search Hunter Biden’s home and his office locations, given the enormous evidence of corruption involving Hunter Biden and Joe Biden, involving Hunter Biden selling access to Joe Biden when he was vice president, involving Hunter Biden being paid millions of dollars from Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company, and millions of dollars from companies funded by the Chinese Communist government.

“At the same time that Hunter Biden, we know, was in his father’s Corvette – he has pictures out on the internet, of him driving his father’s Corvette – which was parked, we now know and is admitted, next to classified documents.”

Cruz notes that, without Hunter Biden’s consent, a judge would have to find probable cause in order to issue the FBI a search warrant.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre should be asked “tomorrow” whether Hunter Biden objects to an FBI search of his home and businesses.

Cruz said, “And notice, she wouldn’t even answer if Joe Biden, the sitting president, objects to the search of his own Senate documents. That question needs to be asked. That search needs to happen.”

Cruz concluded, “And, we need to do it now. The FBI doesn’t need to sit on its rear end for days and weeks and months and let someone put those documents in a shredder. They need to show up tomorrow and search Hunter Biden’s home and office – if we care about protecting classified documents and understanding what Joe Biden has done.

“We need to do that immediately.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) claimed Joe Biden is “literally threatening the lives” of the Supreme Court’s justices. Blaming the president for the explosive fallout from the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo interviewed Cruz on Sunday Morning Futures, he believes a  “left-wing, woke twit” is responsible for leaking Justice Samuel Alito’s draft majority opinion. Cruz expressed hope that the leaker will “be criminally prosecuted” for attempting to “destroy the court.”

Bartiromo asked Cruz for his thoughts on the protests pro-choice advocates were conducting outside the houses of the Supreme Court’s conservative justices. Cruz claimed that causing these demonstrations was the leaker’s intent — as he condemned the Biden Administration because White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki did not emphatically denounce protests at the justices’ homes.

“It was shameful that the White House refused to condemn violent protest threatening the families of the supreme court. It is disgraceful! And Joe Biden used to be chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Joe Biden knows it’s disgraceful! He’s literally threatening the lives of these justices by the mob they’re unleashing. It’s the same thing we saw with Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots where the left embraced them, and now they’re embracing mob violence to get their partisan outcome.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Earlier today Senator Ted Cruz attempted the seemingly impossible task of getting a Biden judicial nominee to answer a question.

Cruz sparred with nominee Kenly Kiya Kato over past writings of hers justifying racial discrimination in the college admissions process. Kato deployed the “I wrote that years ago” defense, then proceeded to do everything she could to not answer if she held the same beliefs today. There were times that Cruz interrupted her where she actually looked relieved she didn’t have to struggle to cobble together some semblance of a coherent response for those brief seconds.

At one point Cruz was forced to ask if she prepared at all for the hearing.

Watch below:

Weeks ago Sen. John Kennedy resorted to asking Judicial nominee Anne Traum what her favorite color was in an attempt to get her to answer a single question – and that was the only one she answered.

Ever since a bunch of Democrats and nonvoters were arrested alongside some Republicans on January 6 when a protest got out of hand, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has repeatedly accused Ted Cruz of attempted murder.

Even when Ted Cruz agreed with AOC that sites like Robinhood who were caught manipulating the market when GameStop stocks started to rise, she pushed that dangerous lie. Asked in a video about her allegations against Cruz, AOC replied, “That’s not the quote and I will not apologize for what I said.” 

“I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,” she told Cruz after he put politics aside and made it clear that corruption on Wall Street is a bipartisan issue. This was one of many such attacks leveled at the Texas Senator by the most vocal member of “The Squad.”

“This is unacceptable,” AOC tweeted. “We now need to know more about @RobinhoodApp’s decision to block retail investors from purchasing stock while hedge funds are freely able to trade the stock as they see fit,” AOC said in her initial tweet, to which Cruz responded, “Fully agree.”

AOC told the New York Post that she will not apologize for her heinous allegation, but she’s not exactly a stranger to lying for attention. She was recently caught exaggerating details and lying about her experience on January 6 to the point that she earned the nickname “Alexandria Ocasio-Smollett.”

Democrats have done all they can to brand conservatives as terrorists — and no one is safe. Not you. Nor your friends or family. Not even a sitting Senator who has served the country admirably.

Watch AOC shamelessly refuse to tell the truth below:

Senator Ted Cruz wasted no time ripping off his mask and revealing himself to be a slimeball turncoat as soon as Donald Trump was out of the picture as President. In his January 25 edition of his podcast, Verdict with Ted Cruz, the Texas Senator unloaded on Trump, calling him “reckless and irresponsible” among other attacks.

“President Trump’s rhetoric, I think, went way too far over the line,” Cruz says. “I think it was both reckless and irresponsible because he said repeatedly — and he said over and over again — he won by a landslide; there was massive fraud; it was all stolen everywhere. ” But despite plenty of evidence surfacing that was ignored by the courts, Cruz says that President Trump’s efforts to expose it were a failure:

That evidence, the campaign did not prove that in any court, and to make a determination about an election it has to be based on the evidence, and so simply saying the result you want, that’s not responsible and you’ve never heard me use language like that. What I’ve said is voter fraud is real, and we need to examine the evidence, and look at the actual facts; and in particular, what is the evidence of how much voter fraud occurred, and did it occur in sufficient quantities and in sufficient states to alter the outcome of the election. That would have been the mandate of the election commission; to assess.”

Cruz has joined a growing crowd of chronically disloyal members of the Republican Party, willing to turn on each other and the American people at a moment’s notice. While Cruz tried his best to make himself seem like a team player in recent years, he has revealed himself to be nothing more than a viper lying in wait to attack his would-be allies.

If Cruz and other suddenly anti-Trumpers have their way, Joe Biden and the Democrats will fundamentally transform America in ways we can’t even foresee. It’s time to vote all of them out and start fresh with patriotic Americans who truly love their country.
