Please not Ted. He'd be a great justice, but he'd have to shut up and we need his voice on this side of the bench.

LionTed 486 points ago +490 / -4

People rip on Ted for being all talk, but consider that the majority of GOP politicians aren't even willing to do that.

AprilShowers 275 points ago +276 / -1

And Ted, at the very least, is always talking about the right things. I'll never forget during IG Horowitz's testimony both Republican and Democrat senators were hyper focused on wether bias or no bias was involved. Ted was the only senator who sat up there and said hold on you spied on an American citizen using doctored evidence while also withholding exculpatory evidence.

There are many more instances but that one will always stick with me.

unlike that piece of shit gowdy.

TZK is at least a fucking shitposter. And he IS always talking about the right things at the right time.

Theres a lot of people who don't bark and spit fire all the time like Gaetz and Nunez but when they do, they tend to influence the general direction of the narrative such as:

James Woods

Chuck Woolery

Mike Huckabee

Dinesh D'Souza

I’m embarrassed that I trusted Gowdy for so long. During all the Clinton shit he seemed like one of the only people interested in the truth, now he’s going out of his way to avoid the truth.

Fucking shameful.

TrumpFortyFive 5 points ago +13 / -8

I need receipts. I still trust Trey Gowdy, but I am God first, Constitutionalist second, and Trump third. If Gowdy opposes those three in significant ways, I must know

Why should I NOT trust Gowdy?

28
deplorabetty 28 points ago +29 / -1

Gowdy is controlled opposition. He always has been. As a politician he talked just enough truth to keep his constituents voting for him. He played a skillful game in being the voice of the opposition during the Clinton mess, so there was no need to have someone who really wanted to get to the bottom of things to take the lead instead.

As soon as he left the House to go to Fox news, his entire facade crumbled.

DoYouBelieveInMAGA 4 points ago +5 / -1

Eh, I don't know if he always has been. And I don't know if he's controlled opposition as in behind-the-scenes people were controlling him. Maybe.

But I made up my mind on him when he left to go be on fucking television. He had momentum and he was getting recognition. He had a chance to be a top conservative leader if he wanted it. Instead of took a paycheck so he could work less and do absolutely nothing except talk.

So either/or. Controlled op or sellout. Doesn't really matter. He's an embarrassment.

12
N7fury 12 points ago +13 / -1

He's hot air. Gowdy also played along with the Russia investigation as if there were legitimate reasons behind it when supposedly he knew very early on it was predicated on bull shit

michaelbuddy 6 points ago +6 / -0

yup. in doing that and not calling it a complete farce, he allowed a 40 million dollar tax wasting, completely undermined the presidency, allowed the coup to go on for any length of time.

Tanmantime 6 points ago +7 / -1

I commented before I saw your comment, but I am asking the same thing. From what I can gather, he made pro- Comey comments, which would be disgusting if true but I totally missed that. If he did, that is pretty slimy.

"I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got, and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump," the South Carolina Republican said in an interview on Fox News.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/29/politics/trey-gowdy-fbi-confidential-source-trump-russia/index.html

Keep in mind, Gowdy had clearance to see the unredacted files, he was on oversight and intelligence committees and should have known just how flimsy the “evidence” was and seen the corruption in the FBI. It’s either incompetence or malice, and having watched him doggedly pursue hilldawg I doubt it’s incompetence.

That’s just one example, he’s said a few things since Trump took office that have made me question his loyalty.

I have listened to Gowdy debate and has question people many times. He’s a machine.

My go-to pundit is Dan Bongino who speaks well of him (although not in agreement on some things, which is fine).

He was a prosector prior to congress and has returned now that he chose not to run again. I find his opinions and analysis clear and insightful.

In all that time I have not seen or heard a reason why he is anything but forthcoming and direct.

I still don’t have any links to dissuade me from that opinion, so until I do I will maintain my opinion of the man. I am ready and willing to be persuaded otherwise.

16
IllusionOfChoice 16 points ago +17 / -1

As Trump reshapes the Republican Party, he is chasing away RINOs (like Jeff Flake) and NeoCons (like Bill Kristol).

Our American political system is configured as a two-party system. The end result is that the Democrat Party must either mutate into something different or disappear and be replaced with a new second party.

Notice that the Democrat Party is now pro-war (the Neo-cons are Dems now) and no longer supportive of blue-collar workers (workers are GOP now).

9
KuzoKevin 9 points ago +9 / -0

The DNC is also moving way left and hemorrhaging black and latino voters who are now supporting Trump. Another Trump term could change the political landscape for decades.

8
IllusionOfChoice 8 points ago +8 / -0

The only thing the Dems have going for them is full support of the billionaire Globalists, who are not content with their wealth but desire total control of the entire planet.

The only throngs who turn out at Biden rallies are Trump supporters, who want to remind him that he is a loser.

He's said before that he would likely reject a nomination not only because he feels he's more valued in the senate, but also because, despite his certainty that he'd rule fairly and in line with the Constitution, he wouldn't want to taint the court with the perception of political boas since so much of his image is involved heavily in the political sphere.

That disgusting, obese, degenerate, diabetic, racist whore on the bench literally said that her opinions were worth more because she wasn't white.

Yes, we need to put an end to brown nationalism. I’m not even kidding. They’ve pushed me far enough that now I’m fine with white nationalism. Because it’s them or me. It’s their kids or my kids. I choose my kids. I choose my race. Even though I’m not completely white, I feel that whites will leave the country in a better position.

2
axrevolutionai 2 points ago +2 / -0

The brown nationalism is to make you disavow your partial white blood and European culture. The brown nationalism and idea of brown solidarity between Hispanics and blacks is also made to make you disavow your varying amounts European heritage, and to forget that everything that makes ANY Latin American culture great is because of Europe. Everything remotely rich or beautiful about Mexico, Brazil, Chile, or Argentina Is because of varying European cultures. And the cornerstone of all Latino cultures, Catholicism, is because of Europe.

I'll go ahead and add, there's a hidden agenda for the past few decades to make Hispanics more brown. One, advocacy for skin care and sunscreen directed towards Hispanics is non existent. If I had been properly SPFing since childhood, I'd be really really white. Two, assimilating Hispanics into black urban culture is needed to destroy the European culture Hispanics share, but also to increase the likelihood that Hispanics marry blacks and have children with them.

This is why young latinos are pretty much identical to blacks.It will essentially will lead to a future where Hispanics are more black than white or Indian. It also collectively lowers literacy and IQ while increasing poverty and crime statistics amongst Hispanics

It's diabolical, and all Hispanics should fight to reclaim their 30 to 80% European heritage and essential whiteness. If Hispanics can get to where Greeks or Italians are, the DNC will no longer be able to enslave us.

It's called ethics. It's the reason why the left and right are in their current positions.

25
alfredbester 25 points ago +25 / -0

It's not just ethics. He's right. They exempt themselves from the rules they write. And then they ignore the rules when they want to and nothing ever happens to them.

Ethics don't help you much against someone who would seriously enjoy seeing you tortured to death. War is hell for good people because you can't win it without doing terrible things to other people. They enjoy the idea of war as long as it benefits them. Don't project your personal goodness on them. They are not good people at heart. It's a terrible truth, but it is the truth.

5
Frosty 5 points ago +6 / -1 (edited)

Ethics exist to maintain the integrity of a system, without them you will fall apart. The important part of maintaining ethics when combating the left is recognizing that they are a significant % of this country (not the cabal, but their drones) and destroying them unethically will have negative consequences for the republic.

Previously, slavery was a breaking point of ethics that resulted in civil war. We’re not quite at the war part. Though I think our breaking points are socialism and/or pedophilia.

The question is how serious of an enemy is the left currently and are we at the point where we go to wartime enemy ethics in order to defeat them? I think we’ve already defeated them without needing to. They’re not even behaving like they’re anticipating winning right now. Wartime ethics are for when all hope of restoring cooperation is lost. I think that’s the case for the cabal but not the brainwashed people.

I think its less caring about the bias, and moreso caring about the fact that it (unfortunately) provides more ammo to the left.

I'm not one to argue that we shouldn't get muddy as fuck if the left insists on bringing in tractors of mud to the fight.

That said, one of the reasons conservatism is inherently better than progressivism is the fact that we at least acknowledge and stick to base principles.

I personally don't give a shit about perception beyond how they affect optics, and even then it's only really a problem when it comes to elections.

He was always cool. Trump just knew how to defeat him and we didn’t like that Cruz was the one guy left in Trump’s way. Frankly, Cruz was the only one who deserved to be anywhere near Trump in the primary.

Never forget that Cruz famously refused to attack Trump in the first several debates, when everyone else was. Cruz was actually the first to defend Trump by calling out the moderators for asking Trump if he was “a clown candidate”.

Everyone was playing the part of typical politician. That’s what makes Trump so revolutionary. He single handedly ended the era of phony politicians, and taught most of the how to win. The best part is that it’s going to take the Democrats at least another 10 years to catch on, maybe much longer.

Cruz was always the smartest guy in the room. He cut his teeth on Bush era politics. He learned how to speak that language and run that playbook.

Trump threw him for a loop. Hell, Trump threw everyone for a loop. It took Cruz a little bit to recalibrate, but he did. There are some (i.e. the lazy Never-Trumper grifter class) who never did.

Cruz doesn't have the instinct that Trump does. Trump is teaching him how to be a MAGA politician. Cruz would never have gotten there on his own. Because he's so traditionally intelligent, he's grown up able to adapt to any situation he's thrown into, and more quickly than most. But he can't play things from the gut like Trump can.

Respectfully disagree. The best place for Cruz is on the Supreme Court.

I’m not convinced he can win a national election (for POTUS in 2024 or 2028), and his voice is too valuable to remain buried in the Senate.

ACB will be the first nominee (replacing RBG). But it wouldn’t shock me if Trump chooses Cruz to replace Clarence Thomas if he gets the chance.

flashersenpai 10 points ago +10 / -0

Although she has to have a certain level of competency, it's literally because she's a woman. It's identity politics. Replace a woman with a woman. Nominate an anti-abortion judge who is a woman.

I doubt she's THAT much better than every other option in the country where she would have to be the first pick.

1
PresidentPreston 1 point ago +1 / -0

True, but there are certain realities that (I believe) we have to be willing to accept if it means our desired outcome is more likely to happen.

In this case, Roe v Wade will not and cannot be overturned by 5 old men. A woman (better yet, a mother) MUST be the deciding vote AND write the majority opinion. It just has to be that way.

You don’t have to like it. But in order for the murderous leftist holocaust of abortion to even have a SHOT at being eliminated in our lifetime, a conservative woman must be on the Bench.

Beyond that, I do think having a conservative woman on the Court would be a good thing. Demographically, there are TONS of conservative women in America, and it would be nicely representational to have that perspective on the SCOTUS.

So yes, the best person should get the job. But if ACB is even remotely close to being in the “best person” conversation anyway, then there are other realities that make her selection preferable, IMHO.

Don Jr is critical to the cause, and a champion in our favor. But MacArthur wasn't President. We need a mind that can withstand the beating Trump has, and still get things done.

Cruz is my first choice, but Trump leaving is like a dying star/supernova effect: who could possibly match up to the enormous star that he is? Especially when the Dems/Deep State/China have been waiting to take over, and will subject some poor sap to even worse treatment than Trump?

Honestly, I disagree. Ted is, at his core, a Constitutionalist. If you listen to him talk, he's not really talking as a democrat or republican, or a liberal, or even a conservative... He speaks about issues strictly as they follow the Constitution.

He would be able to continue to do this as that is exactly what a SCOTUS should do (adhere to the Constitution).

The only reason why he seems 'right wing', or like he's a conservative is because the left has gone so far left, that even those who are strictly Constitutionalist appear to be far right.

If anything, Ted Cruz is more what I would consider to be 'central'. It's just that most conservatives are also central (or right leaning).

Not really. In a comparison between what left wing activist judges do vs. constitutionalists do, you see how different they are. For example, remember when that Hawaiian judge ruled the travel ban unconstitutional in order to give the left what they wanted? A constitutionalist judge would have never blocked Obama on his border policies. Even though Obama’s policies were outrageous, constitutionalist judges understood that the commander in chief is allowed to control immigration.

2
Kaarous 2 points ago +2 / -0

That comparison leaves out a lot of things.

A constitutionalist would overrule Obergefell vs Hodges. A constitutionalist would overrule Roe vs Wade as well. Same thing with birthright citizenship, any actual constitutionalist would oppose it because illegal aliens do not fall under the rightful jurisdiction of the United States, but that of a foreign nation. There is no constitutional basis for any of those things, they were done through distortions of the 14th Amendment.

Rolling back prior bad choices is just as important as merely not making bad ones.

100% disagree. We don't need any more talkers, we need top put the talkers like Ted into a position where they can actually DO SOMETHING. Texans can fill that void with another voice to represent them.

It's questionable if Ted would even accept the nomination if it came to that, because he might still have Presidential aspirations.

He doesn’t need to shut up. The majority or minority opinions he would write of His rulings would be legendary essays. Mandatory reading for constitutional originalists.

KuzoKevin 1 point ago +1 / -0

Clarence Thomas is a great Justice, and he's where he belongs on the Court. He has a brilliant mind and writes great opinions, but he probably wouldn't be very good doing interviews and sticking it to Democrats and their policies.

It's a personality thing. With Cruz fighting for Trump in open battle, we're more likely to win hearts and minds and seats so we can keep adding conservative Justices.

Yes TED... You have to understand something. All that tough talk don't mean a damn thing without the legal system.. How do you think liberals gain a majority of their power??? It wasn't elections , it was the LEGAL SYSTEM. Once we take the LEGAL SYSTEM a way from the LIberals then THAT'S THE END OF THE LIBERAL CONTROL AND GLOBALISTS CONTROL OVER OUR COUNTRY. Unless they can win an election, they won't have any control or say on how this country is ran. CRUZ is needed on the SCOTUS now more than ever. In our country it doesn't matter if Congress passes a law or not because some jack ass liberal can challenge in court and when they win then the law is struck down by the courts system. Look at how many laws and President EQs the justice system has struck down??? So we need TED on the Supreme Court here he can do more damage .

Yeah I'm on board with him on the Supreme Court. I'm not a fan of a some of his very hard religious centered beliefs, but those same beliefs are what would make him a great conservative justice on the courts. Sort of a balance of power if you will because he would be a very strong conservative voice on the courts, but he would not have unilateral authority. One thing about Ted is that he's very consistent in his personal interpretation of the constitution, I believe he strives for. fairness and I can respect that a great deal.

I hope they continue to tag team each other, keeping either from burning out.

Or better yet let no one else in the room besides Chanel Rion and KayMac, with DJT popping in whenever he wants. We'd find out 10x more.

Neither does Trump. President Trump will never nominate Cruz to the Supreme court, he knows he's not to be trusted. Cruz is a sellout... or at least USED to be.

I've asked before, I'll ask again. Ted Cruz's vp candidate was Carly Fiornia, she has publicly said she's voting for JOE BIDEN.

How did Cruz make THAT bad of a pick for VP? It's because his donors told him to. Cruz is not to be trusted, I like the guy, I hope he keeps doing what he does, he's better than most, I love watching him when he feels like ripping somebody up, I'm glad he's on our side, but I would NEVER trust him. Ever. Rest of his life ever.

He definitely deserves a shot at leadership. He has earned my respect over the years. After the 2016 primaries, he was under a lot of pressure to go the nevertrump route. He resisted and became one of Trump's biggest allies. He was there when we needed him and I will never forget that.

Trump burned him up pretty bad, and as a Cruz guy, it pissed me off. I actually thought that Cruz did the best thing with his convention speech, and we all needed some time to heal from that fight. I was actually pissed when Cruz endorsed Trump later on, but I now understand that it was for the best. Cruz has been a great ally for the president, and the president has been the greatest force for good in a generation (something that I didn’t believe in 2016).
