Ted Cruz Rips PolitiFact Over ‘False’ Rating After Texas Supreme Court Ruling

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) excoriated the Texas House Democrats for leaving town.

After the Texas Supreme Court backed the play to bring Democrats back, Cruz hinted physical force could be used bring them back to chambers.

PolitiFact gave his claim a “False” rating, which sent Cruz out to set the record straight.

Clear Legal Authority

I can say with extreme confidence that few members of Congress are as well educated on the law as Senator Cruz.

That confidence goes up tenfold when we are specifically talking about our Constitution and the laws in the state of Texas.

After arrest warrants were issued for the rogue Democrats, Cruz hinted that perhaps “leg irons” and “handcuffs” should be used to bring the Democrats back to House chambers.

PolitiFact and Democrats took issue with this.

In addition to PolitiFact’s false rating, Democratic state Rep. Vikki Goodwin stated, “I just question whether [the Texas Department of Public Safety] or anyone can break down my door to come and put me in shackles and drag me there.

“I feel certain that I can stay in my home, and stay off the House floor.”

To back up his statement, Cruz cited a 1988 precedent in Oregon where a legislator was returned by force.

He then sent out this tweet…

Personally, I would love to see the leg irons and handcuffs strapped on the Democrats and have them paraded through the front door of the state House.

It would be the perfect ending to one of the most ludicrous publicity stunts I have ever seen in politics.

  1. I would almost pay to see if happen !!!!!! These people are ludicrous and have left their constituents with no representation !!!!!! I think each one of them should be removed permanently and restricted from ever running for office again !!!!! JMO !!!!!!!

    1. Amen. Too many of them in each State have become unworthy of the Oath they took when entering Office.
      They are liars and thieves and I wish sometimes that all of those in Congress need to be put on a ship and sent out to Sea and tell them you can’t come back until you apologize the people that you have wronged. That goes for the Presidents who have tried to get rid of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

  2. I think if the Dems don’t want to go DO THEIR JOBS ,,that they are being paid to do ,They should be Replaced with people that will do the job they are being paid tu do,
    Arrest them ,,They are NOT above the law ,Even tho ALL Democrats think they are ,,
    Time to make them pay for their actions!!
    Choices have CONSEQUENCES !!

  3. Actually, I recall lawmakers from Wisconsin leaving the state to protest a ruling they didn’t like. I don’t remember which party or why.

  4. they should all be charged with crossing state lines to avoid arrest, hooked up , and cavity searched very , very thoroughly

  5. We are FED UP WITH DEMOCRATS IGNORANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Leg irons and handcuffs are too good for them. Put them in straight jackets and parade them in. Then parade them to jail in their cute felony jackets.

  6. a bunch of overage infants. I guess they will cry and stamp their feet Put them in diapers and parade them in front of their constituents.

  7. The Demorats have the backing of the criminals in the White House and the biggest criminal Piglosi. So they feel confident no one is going to do anything to them.
    People just have to look at Newsom and Cuomo along with three other DemoRat governors, they killed thousands of people in the nursing homes and criminal charges have not been given out. And they are trying to prevent that incompetent Newsom from being recalled. I guess they all accept bribes well.

  8. I suggest to the Texas legislators that are still doing their jobs, to present a bill to the Texas house, to have the state waive the salary and per diem of any legislator that leaves the state without a valid legislative reason. For example attending a conference on the subject matter of a committee on which the legislator serves, or some other valid reason, maybe even running for national office, or being subpoenaed by congress to give testimony. You know, something that shows that they are doing some kind of work for the state or the people of their respective districts, while they’re away from the state. Seems simple enough. Oh, and maybe, just maybe, their salaries can be stated in terms of an hourly wage. And while we’re at it, why not suspend the salaries and wages of their staffs as well. It seems perfectly logical that if a state legislator is not working, then why should the staff get paid to slack off while the legislator is away?

  9. We the people should and can fire these un American radical corrupt entities that should not only lose there jobs but serve time for the uncalled for action of not doing there job. These radical losers disgust me.

  10. I would pay to see it. For far too long Dems have been breaking laws and getting away with it. These people were elected to serve the public, enact laws to benefit the public. By leaving the house and state, going to DC, they have abridged their oath of office. As it stands the Gov. of Texas and not do the work they have been elected to do. Courts have ruled, in so many words, no work no pay. Repubs., stand firm and do not pay them until they return to work. This means no back pay for the time they have failed to work. To give them back pay, would perpetuate Dem leaving work, getting paid etc. Enough said.

  11. I pray for their constituents that are getting taxation without ANY representation!

  12. There are legal systems established which form a secure and lasting government, and when the elected representatives of either the house or senate, decide to act outside the legal domain, with childish acts because they did not get their way, these are not the peoples representatives and need to, at least immediately politically neutered and then replaced with a legal election of those who will act maturely, even when they do not agree.

  13. To bad we couldn’t make them work on a chain gang too. They could clean the streets in the most violent ‘hoods in Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas.

  14. THE TEXAS CONGRESS SHOULD REMOVE THESE IDIOTS FROM OFFICE FOR VIOLATING THEIR OATH OF OFFICE! THEY NEED TO ISSUE ARREST WARRANTS FOR THEM, AND THEN SEE WHAT THE CAPITAL POLICE CAN COME UP WITH FOR AN EXCUSE FOR NOT ARRESTING THEM! IF YOU NEEDED EVIDENCE THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO PLACE IN PUBLIC OFFICE, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THIS! OF COURSE, WHEN BIDEN, “I AM THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY” AND “I WILL HEAL AMERICA” SIMPLY DISSES SCOTUS TO “BUY TIME” AND ATTEMPTS TO MAKE THE CDC OUR NEW LEGISLATIVE BRANCH, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT! BIDEN HAS PUSHED THE DIVISION IN THE US TO HISTORICAL EXTREMES AND SHOWS NO INTEREST IN UNITING OUR COUNTRY! EXACTLY WHAT OUR ENEMIES WANT!

  15. As with the U.S. Congress, any state legislature can impeach and remove a legislator for violating their oath of office. Simpleas that.

  16. Why is Joe Biden encouraging illegal immigration and terrorists to breach US borders, enabling
    terrorist to establishing terrorist sleeper cell nests in every state in the United States? His actions will have a great impact and compromise many Americans’ lives. Why is Joe Biden not protecting the American people from terrorist threats? This Initial responsibility falls upon Joe Biden. The President’s highest priority is to keep American people safe from threats by preventing terrorist attacks and other threats against our homeland. Dereliction of duty is a specific under United States Code Title 10, Section 892, Article 92.

  17. Agree with all posts! They should be arrested, dragged back into the capitol building, and not permitted to leave until they do their jobs. And—- they should not get paid, no benefits, no per diem, and then fired and jailed for dereliction of duty! Their juvenile behaviour should not be tolerated, and—- they should be barred from holding any public or government office again!

  18. So? DO IT!! Have all of the Democrats who left to avoid doing the job they were elected to do, brought in by force if needed!
    Why keep beating this dead horse?

Remember when Biden promised he would “transform” the economy? He inherited a robust recovery and now we are on the brink of recession.

Per a new CBS poll, 84% of Americans have been impacted by the #BidenGasHike and 90% by food prices.

71% disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation.

In the last year, over 1 MILLION voters have switched to the Republican Party!
