Ted Cruz hits back
at Joe Scarborough for
‘willfully ignorant’ remarks

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:sparky86, 3/16/2013 1:53:16 PM

On his Friday program, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough ranted against junior Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for questioning the constitutional merits of California Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s gun control proposals. “I don’t mean to go on and on here, but I am so shocked that he would continue to use his seat in the judiciary committee to just mislead millions of Americans and put forward a willfully ignorant position on what the Constitution says and what it does not say,” Scarborough said.

Comments:
At least he is taking these media know it alls head on and not ignoring them hoping it will go away!

"...shall not be infringed" means no restrictions. Period. And the 2nd amendment applies to the states as well as the feds.

Thank goodness there is one Senator not afraid to confront those who on a daily basis are trying to diminish the rights of "We The People" and this includes those who supposedly on ´our´ side without enough courage to defend our rights. Confronting those and speaking out.......we need more like Senator Cruz.

I sure like this Ted Cruz. He´s very smart, totally articulate, a true gentleman, and a principled Conservative. He could have told DianeFrankenstein that indeed she had been there a long time, perhaps too long. That would have been my temptation. He just seems so comfortable - he´s not trying to be anyone but himself. Authentic. Thank you Texas for sending this gem to Washington for us all.

Thank God for Ted Cruz

The problem we, as normal human beings, have, is that we have a hard time recognizing the threat of the left.

We can see (and recognize) the destruction and death caused by communism, socialist views. We can see (and recognize) the political leaders of the past who were tyrants.

And, we can see how those tyrants came to power. They Lied. They preyed upon the people not recognizing the lie for what it was, not reacting to the lie allowing it to fester and beget bolder lies.

The Holocaust can be seen today for what it was - but the victims of the death camps did not get onto the boxcars willingly, knowing they were going to the gas chambers. They were LIED to.

Scarborough, Feinstein, Obama are Lying to us.

There are arguments a gun grabber can make that rely on case law. They are legitimate arguments such as pointing out that machine guns were made subject to restrictions long ago.

Feinstein relies on no such arguments or show a willingness to debate the merits. Instead, she points to emotional, semi-fictionalized accounts of her angusih and depression caused by evil people doing evil things. Following her rationale, anything that upsets one is fair game for exclusion from constitutionally protected freedoms.

Don´t accept these types of arguments. Cruz s good at it and Ryan tries on the econimic policy issues (Conservatives are always going to kill, maim, murder, starve, etc. everyone but rich plutocrats.)

Josephine is a dirty dog playing in the same media cesspool as the other MSNBC poseurs.

JOe, Dianne needed to be brought down a peg or two, who cares if she has been there 20 years, she has been there too long. The voters of Texas have just as much right to have their representative speak as the voters of California have their speak. You, Joe, are the one that needs to just sit down and just shut up. Your the one who is willfully ignorant.

Never actually watch Joe, he is such a scatterbrained fool, how did he ever get called ´conservative´?

Cruz is absolutely correct. In the Federalist Papers, the owner´s manual for the Constitution, written by the same authors, at the time, is very clear about the intent of the 2nd Amendment.

They wanted the militia as well armed as the ´standing army´. And they very specifically answer the question, "Who is the militia?" with "They are the whole of the people, except for some government officials."

They absolutely intended for private citizens to have the capability to put together ´pickup teams´ of citizens well enough armed to make it impossible for the standing Army to put in place oppressive laws, ESPECIALLY laws disarming the citizenry.

". . .SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" is not equivocal, it is clear and ABSOLUTE.

Note that in the Civil War, the militias had their own artillery and cavalry. The current equivalents are not permitted to citizens of the US, but are OK for Swiss citizens - a real free militia.

Cruz made two clear arguments for which he received no response and as DF lectured him, she accused him of Lecturing her. Bizarre? No, a search for an MSM soundbite, absolutely. That was what this was about. It was preplanned that she would huff and puff even if she was asked by TC if the sun rose in the East. Get used to it.

His first argument referred to three Amendments which contained the phrase, "...the right of the people..." They are the First, Second and Fourth. These are individual rights. If Feinstein is empowered to decide what people can "keep and bear", what Rights does she see under the First and Fourth that the government has to bless for them to be Rights? Interesting oxymoron that!

His second argument and question was that Heller had a qualification on weapons but that qualification precluded weapons "in regular use". There are over four million weapons currently on DF´s list in use today. TC argues that constitutes "Regular Use". TC ought to know as he both prepared the brief for the 31 States and argued it before the Court for them. He knows the qualification in Heller.

DF, Leaky Leahy and Turban Durbin all tried to jump on TC. They brought a knife to a "scary looking semi-automatic weapons" fight.

Ted Cruz reminds me of the time Johnny Unitus was ask after he won the first Super Bowl. A reporter asked if he was worried about getting intercepted on a crucial pass that set up the wining TD. He replied "You don´t get intercepted when you know what your doing".Ted Cruz knows his business and what he is doing.

Feinstein never fails to whip out her "I had Harvey Milk´s Blood On My Hands" tale whenever the going gets rough.

She built her political career on that tear-jerker and has milked it for 35 years.

Ted Cruz does recognize the threat from the Left, and he´s not afraid to confront it. I´m proud to say I supported his campaign, even though I´m from VA. And I will continue to support conservative candidates instead of sending my money to the RNC.

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy.

A failure to properly supervise a Department of Veteran’s Affairs employee led him to use VA resources for sexting, misuse official time, and inappropriately spend thousands of dollars in travel funds, according to a recent report. In a redacted report — first highlighted by the Military Times — the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General reveals a plethora of cringe-worthy offenses perpetrated by an unnamed VA employee. Despite the employee’s bad behavior, his supervisors allowed him to continue his unauthorized activities and even promoted him.

In 2011, the Department of Justice raided Gibson Guitar facilities in Memphis and Nashville, alleging a violation of the so-called Lacey Act, a law that bans the importation of certain kinds of wildlife, plants and wood. At the time of the raid, Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz told Hugh Hewitt on his radio show that the feds confiscated tonewood imported from India for the guitar Gibson manufacturers which would result in a cost of $2 to $3 million for his company. At a great expense in legal fees and time, Juszkiewicz fought the federal government tooth and nail.

Left-leaning Daily Beat columnist Kirsten Powers, who recently revealed how she lost her health coverage under Obamacare, slammed the Obama administration’s efforts to deal with the metastasizing Affordable Care Act Tuesday night.

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response. And there are a lot of possibilities that could explain how this bit of data is an aberration. As the Associated Press reports, the
