Exclusive — Ted Cruz Caves to Democrat
Amy Klobuchar on Media Cartel Bill

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 9/22/2022 2:04:02 AM

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has caved to the Democrats on legislation that would allow media organizations to create formal cartels to negotiate with Big Tech companies, several congressional aides and others familiar with the process told Breitbart News on Wednesday. If Cruz goes forward with his plans to back—and allow the senate to advance—the legislation, then he will immediately become one of the biggest enablers of the establishment media and Big Tech giants and he could seriously jeopardize his political future.

I attended an event in Mt. Pleasant, SC where Ted Cruz was speaking. I haven't trusted him since that time. I could never put my finger on just why. Even some conservatives are fake. I was listening to the Lt. Governor of Texas on some news show yesterday. He talked all over actually doing something about illegals coming across the border after the interviewer asked him why Texas didn't declare an invasion and put troops on the border. He talked and talked but never answered the question. He thought complaining about what biden was/wasn't doing was enough. They're all playing US.

Anything the treasonous hack Klobuchar backs would nor could ever help America in any capacity. Cruz just lost all pretense of being a conservative; at least a conservative that couldn't be bought.

Yertle the Turtle must have something on him. If this turns out to be true and he does not adequately explain how he can throw the 1st Amendment down the toilet to protect the ENEMIES of free speech while at the same time still professing that this IS free speech, this will be his political death knell. His current term ends in 2024..... let the Texas Primary for '24 begin!

The Media and Big Tech are already thoroughly corrupt and deep in the pockets of the left. There is nothing anybody can do at this point to reform either one until honesty returns to government, or should I say that honesty needs to be introduced to government for the first time?

Everybody please calm down. Until Cruz says that he is doing this, or actually does it, it is nothing but hearsay from basically "unnamed sources". I live in Texas. This does not sound like Cruz in the least to me. If it is true, he will instantly become the Manchin of the Republican Party, and his career will be gone. But this wreaks of dirty politics to me, and based on his mostly solid conservative history, I'm not jumping on this "he is dead to me" over-reaction based on "media reports" until something actually happens to deserve it.

Facebook’s ban of former President Donald Trump may be lifted in January 2023, a company executive suggested in an interview. Facebook Global Affairs President Nick Clegg told startup news company Semafor during a Sept. 22 event that his platform might allow Trump back on the platform in January 2023, when Trump’s two-year suspension expires. “When you make a decision that affects the public realm, you need to act with great caution,” Clegg reportedly said, explaining that Facebook will consult “experts” and consider the supposed “risk of real world harm,”

President Joe Biden attacked House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy's 'thin' Commitment to American and mocked him for saying 'with a straight face' that he 'will restore faith' in American elections, in another speech attacking MAGA Republicans. Biden appeared before a crowd at the National Education Association headquarters in Washington Friday afternoon for a Democratic National Committee political event, where he devoted significant attention to McCarthy and House Republicans' appearance in Pennsylvania earlier. 'After opposing and obstructing everything we tried to do to stop progress for the last two years, the House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy went to Pennsylvania and unveiled what he calls a "Commitment to America,"' Biden remarked.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s latest anti-Israel slur highlights yet again just how far Democrats have strayed. Once upon a time, they wouldn’t have tolerated such outrageous attacks on the Jewish state. Today, Tlaib is just one of several Dems who repeatedly lie about Israel and push for its demise. “You cannot claim to hold progressives values yet back Israel’s apartheid government,” Tlaib said Tuesday. Yet the suggestion that Jerusalem is under an “apartheid government” is beyond outrageous: Israel welcomes people of all faiths and backgrounds.

President Joe Biden called out Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for proposing a bill titled “Protecting Pain-Capable Unborn Children from Late-Term Abortions Act,” which would prohibit abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. During a speech, Biden claimed that the Catholic Church wouldn’t agree with not aborting unborn babies past 15 weeks of pregnancy, despite the Bible’s assertion that from the womb to tomb, life should be protected. “From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person –

The average American has lost $4,200 in income due to soaring inflation and rising interest rates, according to an analysis by the Heritage Foundation. Experts at the right-leaning think tank analyzed consumer prices data and the Federal Reserve's interest rates. Consumer prices have risen 12.7 percent since 2021, far outpacing wages and Heritage experts believe this has cost Americans about $3,000 each in purchasing power. As the Fed pushes interest rates to a range of 3-3.25 percent, higher borrowing costs are squeezing Americans on mortgages, vehicle loans and credit cards, costing another $1,200 per year.

"Obviously, there are issues with the border and with migration. But these are the kinds of stunts you see from people who don’t have a solution,"

Gavin Newsom signed a bill into law allowing the practice of composting dead human beings to better combat climate change. Citing the high CO2 emissions associated with cremation, the bill will give people the option to give their dead remains over to a process known as natural organic reduction (NOR) should they not want to be buried or cremated. “The process involves placing the body inside a long, reusable steel container along with wood chips and flowers to aerate it – allowing microbes and bacteria to break down the remains,” according to the Daily Mail.

The end is near. For Putin’s military options in Ukraine, that is. Wednesday in Moscow, Putin said he will call up reservists and hold political referenda in captured Ukrainian territory. And yet again, he threatened to use nuclear weapons if Russian territory is in danger. Despite the scary language, Putin is not fooling anybody in NATO. Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg lost no time pointing out that Russia doesn’t have enough weapons to equip more troops. White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby immediately said the speech showed Putin was struggling. And at the UN, President Biden denounced Putin’s war. Putin’s biggest problem is that Russia is losing and Ukraine has

The chief executive of the largest U.S. bank was testifying before a House panel with other bank executives. Representative Rashida Tlaib, the Michigan Democrat, claimed that preventing temperatures from rising more than 2.7 degrees in the coming decades would require no new fossil fuel production. “Please answer, yes or no. Does your bank have a policy against funding new oil and gas products?” Tlaib asked. “Absolutely not and that would be the road to Hell for America,” said Dimon.

A diversity and inclusion training by the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado instructs cadets to use words that "include all genders" and to refrain from saying things like "mom" and "dad." The slide presentation titled, "Diversity & Inclusion: What it is, why we care, & what we can do," obtained by Fox News Digital, advises cadets to use "person-centered" and gender-neutral language when describing individuals. "Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,'" the presentation states. "Use words that include all genders​: ‘Folks’ or ‘Y’all’ instead of ‘guys’; ‘partner’ vs. ‘boyfriend or girlfriend.’"
