Senator Ted Cruz

Senator Ted Cruz Official page of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). In 2012, Ted Cruz was elected as the 34th U.S. Senator from Texas. A passionate fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution, Ted won a decisive victory in both the Republican primary and the general election, despite having never before been elected to office.

Propelled by tens of thousands of grassroots activists across Texas, Ted’s election has been described by the Washington Post as “the biggest upset of 2012 . . . a true grassroots victory against very long odds.”

National Review has described Ted as “a great Reaganite hope,” columnist George Will has described him as “as good as it gets,” and the National Federation of Independent Business charac

There is a serious border crisis unfolding and it is getting worse and worse every day.

It is the direct result of political decisions made by the Biden administration.

03/24/2021

Democrats’ partisan agenda to restrict #2A rights doesn’t work.

What works is targeting the bad guys.

03/24/2021

Rich liberals who have their own security details are trying to dictate law abiding citizens’ ability to protect themselves & their own families.

That’s not right.

Instead, we should be going after the bad guys because that's what works and protects the Second Amendment.

Democrats have objected to:

Not sending checks to criminals in prison.

Not sending checks to murderers in prison.

Not sending checks to rapists in prison.

Not sending checks to child molesters in prison.

Today’s extreme Democrat Party:

✅ Supports giving taxpayer dollars as #COVID checks to illegal aliens.

✅ Supports giving taxpayer dollars as #COVID checks to violent criminals who are currently sitting in prison.

Cruz blasts Dems for 'ridiculous theater' in calls for gun control after shootings

The Senate Judiciary Committee wrestled with the issue of gun violence in the wake of mass shootings in Boulder, Colorado, and Atlanta, Georgia, agreeing that they need to take action but vociferously disagreeing on what that action should be.

03/23/2021

Every time there is a shooting Democrats propose going after law-abiding citizens & their #2A rights.

Let’s target the bad guys, put them in jail, and stop them from getting guns.

Let's not scapegoat innocent law abiding citizens & let's not target their Constitutional rights.

'Catch & release' causes more harm than good.

The Biden administration must immediately address the crisis on the border caused by their policies.

Denying the press the ability to observe, film, and report on the conditions at the border is not openness or transparency—it is hiding the truth from the American people.

That is why I’m calling on Biden to commit to allowing free and fair reporting on the crisis at the border.

Sanctions on Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline come with CIA Senate confirmation

AP: “‘The (State) Department reiterates its warning that any entity involved in the Nord Stream 2 pipeline risks U.S. sanctions & should immediately abandon work on the pipeline,’ Blinken said. Soon after the statement was issued, Cruz lifted his hold.”

https://fortune.com/2021/03/19/cia-senate-confirmation-battle-ted-cruz-russian-pipeline-sanctions/

The Biden administration is opposed to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline because it believes it will harm European energy security, particularly for countries in Eastern and Central Europe.

I was proud to work closely with Bill in the Senate on bipartisan legislation to modernize our space program, champion our commercial space sector, and take meaningful steps toward achieving our long-term human exploration goals, including returning Americans to the surface of the Moon and landing the first American astronauts on Mars.

Together, Bill and I worked to pass multiple crucial pieces of legislation to ensure stability for NASA to allow the agency to sustain and build upon existing national space investments and took successful steps to honor the women and hidden figures who for too long worked in obscurity at NASA.

Bill's wealth of experience and dedication to advancing America's leadership in space will be critical in this new era of space exploration. I look forward to working with Bill to bolster American leadership in the final frontier.

A Man-Made Disaster at the Border - Washington Free Beacon

Biden’s policies led to this:

Our country faces enormous challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Department of Health and Human Services is charged with leading our country through this public health challenge. That's why it's so dismaying President Biden nominated Xavier Becerra - a Left-wing trial lawyer whose only experience with healthcare is suing the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Becerra is woefully unqualified to serve as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services and that is why I voted against his confirmation. I'll continue to work with my colleagues in the Senate on commonsense solutions to reopen our economy, get Americans safely back to work and school, and defeat this pandemic.

I welcome Secretary Blinken’s statement, which reinforces to the international community that there is a bicameral, bipartisan, and whole of government commitment in the United States to stopping Putin's Nord Stream 2 pipeline. Entities that are engaged in work on Nord Stream 2 today now understand that they will face devastating sanctions unless the work stops immediately.

In light of the Secretary's strong declaration, I am following through on my commitment to the State Department to lift the Nord Stream 2-related holds that I have placed on William Burns and Brian McKeon, the president's nominees for director of the Central Intelligence Agency and Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, respectively. I will continue leading this fight until Putin realizes this pipeline will fail, and it will never be completed. I will maintain my hold on Wendy Sherman and will hold future State Department nominees until the full sanctions mandated by Congress are in fact broadly imposed against the ships and companies critical to completing the pipeline.

The surge in crossings at our southern border are a direct result of President Biden’s open borders agenda.

Boulder had a ban on "assault" rifles, high velocity rifles with bullets that shred internal human tissue like a meat grinder. The NRA, which owns you, sued to remove the ban & a judge obliged. Six days later, 10 Americans are murdered including a cop. Gun control would have worked had the as****es who line your pockets not sued to remove it. So f**k you & your lies about rational people trying to save lives with sensible gun control.
These are the 9 things that the Parkland students want government do for gun safety.. 1. Ban semi-automatic weapons that fire high-velocity rounds. 2. Ban accessories that simulate automatic weapons. 3. Establish a database of gun sales and universal background checks. 4. Change privacy laws to allow mental healthcare providers to communicate with law enforcement. 5. Close gun show and secondhand sales loopholes. 6. Allow the CDC to make recommendations for gun reform. 7. Raise the firearm purchase age to 21. 8. Dedicate more funds to mental health research and professionals. 9. Increase funding for school security. Are these unreasonable? Does it look like they want to take all your guns away?
Senator Cruz, please, please, our Country needs your leadership, please run for President in 2024!
I know we are pretty much fighting on every freaking front there is between 2A, border, taxes and everything else. but with the looming threat of the Dems possibly flipping Texas in a few years is there any way to ban or some how make it illegal for anyone to impose an state income tax in Texas since they are well known for that being one fo their first things to do is start a state income tax. Also some way to make a cap on how much sales tax can max out at. Seriously and this would be as a state if we were to secede it would have to change but seriously. This is a serious question for the future of Texas and Texans.
Ted, what can we do to stop the illegalz from coming into the US? Who do we, as Americans call or email to put a stop to the border crossings????
Why can't we impeach Biden? He's flagrantly violated our Federal Immigration laws, he's not up to it health wise, and circumvented the Congress and the Constitution? I know this sounds a little ridiculous, but I don't know why we can't have a class action suit, The people of the United States vs. The President of the United States. There's a list of grievances from the election to current issues.
Gm Ted, ty for "trying" to get a message through "our "to country, I haven't heard any other congress people trying to get the point we all want to hear. Aren't any other Rep. congress men or women have enough motorization to stand up for America , or the people that voted them in, our Constitution, our way of live, and mostly America ? Keep up he good work, and try to get the other parts of congress (both demos, and reps) to join in, work together a nd save our beloved country.
Why could you have not been born in the states? I love Trump! I hope he runs again in 2024. If not, I wish it were you!
Hiw many more people have ti die frim MASS shootings? GOP could care less! Its all about jeeping your guns! NO sir folks dont Need guns designed for war BAN ASSAULT WEPEONS NOW or RESIGN
Only you, Sen Cruz, seem capable of twisting truth, and words of frustration, to slam Democrat's thoughts. "Faith without works is dead." Martin Luther Over and over there has been violence by gun, yet the same old songs are sung about protecting our homes, blah blah blah. Apparently you won't get it until your own family is affected. Shame on you for using the prayer card as a "gotcha!"
I pray in Jesus Christ name God help us all,.
