What happens when a disrespectful Democratic Representative shames the American flag and the national anthem? A video by Ted Cruz answering the calls of patriotic Texans is just the answer you’re looking for. It was none other than Robert (Beto) O’Rourke who claimed that taking a knee during the national anthem is one of the most “American” things that someone can do in form of a peaceful protest. As much as people are allowed to protest, it’s certainly not very American-like to disrespect the flag of our nation or the people who fought to keep it standing.
Ted Cruz had one simple response. A nicely tuned video ad blasting back and making an unapologetic announcement. This is the type of video that could make everyone think twice about kneeling during the national anthem. It’s a disgrace when people take a knee and many people are tired of seeing it.
Ted Cruz’s video already has over 54,000 views and states “Why do I stand?
I stand for the veterans like Tim Lee who lost both his legs fighting in South Vietnam.
SHARE if you’re proud to stand, too!”

Posted by Ted Cruz on Monday, August 27, 2018
“Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas released a campaign ad Monday in response to his opponent’s claim that there is “nothing more American” than protesting the national anthem.
A constituent asked Senate hopeful and Democratic Rep. Robert O’Rourke of Texas earlier in August if he felt that NFL players kneeling for the national anthem was disrespectful to the country and America’s veterans. In a now-viral interaction, O’Rourke disagreed and commended the demonstration.
“My short answer is: No, I don’t think it’s disrespectful,” O’Rourke said. “And I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up or take a knee for your rights, anytime, anywhere, anyplace.”
Cruz fired back on behalf of those veterans who lost the ability to stand themselves while fighting for the country.
“Whoever believed that we would have issues about whether you’re going to stand during the national anthem or not?” Marine Corps Sgt. Tim Lee asked during the ad.
Lee, a retired combat veteran, stepped on a landmine while fighting in Vietnam and consequently lost both of his legs.
“I gave two legs for this country,” Lee continued. “I’m not able to stand, but I sure expect you to stand for me when that national anthem is being played.”
An article by USA Today states that Beto and Ted are in a statistical tie. That’s bizarre considering they’re in Texas. You might think people in Texas are all about standing for the national anthem, but I guess there’s a big group of Democrats who support Beto, which sounds like a very poor decision in my opinion.
“Republican incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz is in a statistical dead heat with Rep. Beto O’Rourke in Texas, according to an Emerson College e-poll published Wednesday.
The e-poll, which was conducted from Aug. 22-25 with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent, found Cruz with 38 percent of the vote, O’Rourke with 37 percent and 21 percent of respondents undecided.
According to the poll, the biggest challenge for Cruz in his path to a second term in the U.S. Senate is among independent voters. Cruz had a 57 percent unfavorable and only 25 percent favorable rating within that group, the poll found.
O’Rourke was the clear choice of younger Texans, with those surveyed between the ages of 18 and 34 favoring the Democratic challenger by nearly 20 percentage points (45 to 28 percent). Cruz, on the other hand, leads among voters ages 55 to 74 by 14 points, 45 to 37 percent.
Cruz’s lead among those over 75-years-old is even greater, at 39 to 17 percent.
Cruz has followed President Donald Trump’s playbook and criticized O’Rourke for siding with NFL players who have knelt during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.
O’Rourke entered the race against Cruz more than a year ago as a virtually unknown lawmaker outside of his hometown of El Paso. He reported strong fundraising numbers early in the race, but many political observers were skeptical that he could pose a serious threat to the well-established Cruz.
Since then, O’Rourke has kept busy. He has campaigned in each of the state’s 254 counties, holding town halls and taking meetings with community leaders. His unconventional campaign methods and fundraising abilities have drawn national attention.”
Hopefully, the people in Texas get to the voting stations and push Ted Cruz to victory. Ted loves America more than many people and he stands for the Constitution. It would be a shame if someone like Beto, who thinks taking a knee during the national anthem is one of the most “American” things you can do. I disagree with Beto and would vote for Ted Cruz in a split second if I lived in Texas.
If you live in Texas, then who are you voting for?
What kind of person are you? A kneeler or a stander?

Sarah Sanders Has Finally Had Enough Drops Sudden Announcement During Live Interview
I have the greatest respect for White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She’s fearless when confronted by leftists and she’s simply the best press secretary I have ever seen. She has been inundated by ridiculous claims and allegations by the left and the media over the last few days. Many of them have to do with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and I think she’s just about had enough of this stupidity. I know I have.
This morning Sanders appeared on Fox & Friends and bluntly gave her opinion on the Democrats’ handling of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process and sexual misconduct allegations, calling it “absolutely appalling and disgusting.” It is, there’s no arguing with that. The Democrats have jumped into the mud hollow and are gleefully wallowing in the muck that they throw at Kavanaugh. It’s lies and defamation and it is sickening.
“I think the process that the Democrats have played has been absolutely appalling and disgusting,” Sanders told “Fox & Friends.” She made the point that the accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford wanted to reach out about her story privately. I’m not so sure of that… I personally think this was all cooked up to do exactly what it is accomplishing… throwing a wrench in the nomination process.
Sanders added that it has become a “public circus” because they waited until the “11th hour.” All by design. It’s the same tactic they pulled on Clarence Thomas and Judge Roy Moore. It’s become their go-to last-ditch move to get rid of the conservative of the hour.
The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Accusations the likes of which have never been seen before!

“[Democrats], frankly, hurt two different families’ lives that they’ll never be able to be the same because of the way that they’ve operated this process. And I think it’s disgusting that they’ve exploited these individuals and their families for their own political purposes,” said Sanders. I do too.
Kavanaugh does not deserve to be treated like this. I don’t believe Ford who has the credibility of swiss cheese or Ramirez who won’t even answer the Senate Intelligence Committee. Both women have the same problem that no one backs up their claims and that they waited decades to come forward. And when they did so it was at the exact point in time to try and block Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court. I don’t believe in coincidences.
Sanders also said today that Democrats are playing a “political game” with allegations of sexual misconduct by President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, calling the ploy “appalling.” Again, an excellent descriptor of what they are doing to Kavanaugh.
From The Daily Wire:
“Brett Kavanaugh has asked for his voice to be heard in this process, too,” Sanders said. “Last I can remember, we’re still a country where you’re innocent until proven guilty — unless you’re a conservative Republican. It is absolutely shameful what the Democrats have done and the way they have turned this into complete political process.”
“Sanders said that Democrats have ruined “multiple lives.”
“They want this to be a political game, and I think that the way they have operated in this is absolutely appalling,” Sanders said. “If anything has been appalling, it’s the way that they have gone after and used these people’s stories and their lives and exploited them for political gain.”
“Sanders was asked whether Deborah Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh’s at Yale University who claims Kavanaugh exposed himself at a freshman-year party, should be allowed to testify.
“Certainly we would be open to that, and that process could take place on Thursday,” Sanders said.
“Christine Blasey Ford, who claims Kavanaugh held her down and fondled her when the two were at a boozy high school party 36 years ago, is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. In an interview Monday night on Fox News, Kavanaugh denied both Ford’s and Ramirez’s allegations and said he would not “let false accusations drive us out of this process.”
“The president’s been clear,” Sanders said. “Let them speak, but let’s also let Brett Kavanaugh speak, and let’s let him tell his side of the story before we allow allegations to determine his entire future.'”
Sanders is fed up with the hypocrisy on the left over this whole piece of tortured political theater. So am I and I think most of America is right there with me on that.
ABC should be ashamed and I’m referring to George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America.”
From The Daily Caller:
“When Roy Moore is accused, when Bill O’Reilly is accused, when Roger Ailes is accused, when Rob Porter is accused, and now when Brett Kavanaugh is accused, the president consistently every single time takes the side of the man,” “GMA” host George Stephanopoulos told Sanders.
“You know, it’s interesting that you say that,” she replied. “It’s a lot of Democrats that like to ignore Keith Ellison and Cory Booker. They love to fight and champion women until they disagree with them.”
“Sanders referenced current misconduct allegations against Keith Ellison by his former girlfriend Karen Monahan. She also pointed to Sen. Cory Booker’s past admission that he groped a girl while he was a young teenager.
“Stephanopoulos pointed out that former Sen. Al Franken was hounded from office by his party, but Sanders rebutted “and a number of other Democrats should have the same type of scrutiny.”
“Trump has indicated he believes decades-old sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh are a smear campaign aired by the Democratic Party to derail his nomination.
“The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Accusations the likes of which have never been seen before!” Trump tweeted late Monday.”
Sanders nailed him and really hit him over Ellison and Booker. I’m impressed. That was wondrous sparring on her part.
I am totally disgusted by the Democrats over all of this. It is transparently obstructionist and just plain evil. They are indeed trying to destroy a good man and his family. The Republicans need to put a stop to this and fast. This is why the Democrats should never be in power ever again.

Maxine Waters’ Career May Be Finished — New Scandal Revealed
California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is certainly no stranger to controversy and scandal. In fact, she wallows in it. Waters strikes me as someone who believes she is above the law and can get away with whatever she wants. It’s one of the reasons she is seen as one of the most corrupt politicians in Congress.
A new complaint has been filed against Waters and it and the new unfolding scandal surrounding the complaint has the potential to finish off her career. The complaint involves an obscure fundraising tactic that has raked in thousands of dollars from state politicians in exchange for being listed on her slate mailers. This go-around, it involves supporters of a former Los Angeles mayor defeated in the June gubernatorial primary.
A conservative watchdog group named the National Legal and Policy Center is the one who filed the complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Waters, her campaign and a pro-charter school group called Families and Teachers for Antonio Villaraigosa — which backed the former Democratic mayor of Los Angeles.
This is very serious and could in the end not only end Waters’ career… it could also entail jail time. She has the best attorneys money can buy and it looks like she may need them.
From Fox News:
“The pro-Villaraigosa group paid $25,000 to the Citizens for Waters Committee on May 25 to include Villaraigosa in her slate mailer, according to the complaint. FEC guidelines, however, say only a candidate’s committee can pay for the mailers — sample ballots traditionally mailed out to about 200,000 voters in Los Angeles highlighting whom Waters supports.
“Waters’ mailers have faced scrutiny since 2010 because the campaign, since 2004, has paid her daughter Karen Waters, or her public relations firm Progressive Connections, to produce, print and mail the sample ballots.
“Legally, candidates are paying a reimbursement for the slate mailer, rather than buying an endorsement. But it’s difficult to prove whether the Waters endorsement comes as a result of the payment or if already endorsed candidates are paying for their share, Adav Noti, a former FEC assistant general counsel, recently told Fox News while explaining the peculiar process.
“The mailers also effectively provide a loophole to get around federal campaign contribution limits. The watchdog group’s FEC complaint, the second against Waters since July, is asking for a full audit of the congresswoman’s campaign.
“Since the commission has given federal campaigns broad discretion involving slate mailers it is imperative the issues cited in this complaint are fully investigated and all penalties and fines that may result from a finding that the Citizens for Waters campaign was in violation of the statutes cited should be applied in full,” the complaint filed Thursday morning says.
“Neither Waters’ congressional office nor her campaign responded to phone and email inquiries for this report.”
This has nothing to do with Waters vicious attacks on President Trump. This scandal has been brewing for her for years. It was just a matter of time before the law started knocking on her proverbial door. However, it won’t slow her down from calling for Trump’s impeachment.
Villaraigosa ran as a moderate Democrat in the gubernatorial jungle primary. This means that the two candidates that get the most votes will face off in the general election, regardless of what party they belong to. Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Republican businessman John Cox won that primary so Villaraigosa is out of the running.
A politician out of office is even more vulnerable to legal action as their misdeeds have a way of coming out much more easily.
Charter school advocates formed a group that spent millions of dollars on TV ads pushing for Villaraigosa. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a billionaire, and Netflix CEO Reed Hastings were among those who bankrolled Families and Teachers for Antonio Villaraigosa. All uber leftists.
“This liberal lioness who is for teacher unions and public education didn’t mind taking money from charter school advocates,” Tom Anderson, the director of the government integrity project at the National Legal and Policy Center, told Fox News. “This is clearly not only enriching Maxine Waters and her family but what better way for tech billionaires and Michael Bloomberg to push against the teacher unions?”
As soon as the primary was over, Newsom aligned himself with Waters. Newsom’s campaign paid $27,000 to the Waters campaign on June 5, primary day, to be featured on her slate mailers. Because it came from the candidate’s committee, that payment was supposedly legal. Waters, 79, will face Republican Omar Navarro, 29, a small business owner in the election.
More from Fox News:
“Federal law technically limits individual campaign contributions to $2,700 to a candidate’s committee and $5,000 to a political action committee. But the mailers are treated differently. A 2004 FEC advisory opinion, signed by Democratic FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, set guidelines for how those mailers can be funded.
“A 2004 FEC advisory opinion described the pamphlets as follows: “The brochure will feature a prominent picture or likeness of Representative Waters on the front page. It will be promoted as Representative Waters’ ‘official sample ballot’ and will contain brief quotes, which convey her opinions and endorsements of the federal and non-federal candidates listed.”
“The FEC opinion stated that the payments from other candidates “would not constitute support of, or in-kind contributions to, any federal candidate appearing in the brochure, so long as the authorized committee of that federal candidate reimburses the Waters Committee.”
“The watchdog group’s FEC complaint stressed the parameters of the 2004 decision.
“In the advisory opinion the Commission clearly states that payments made to the Citizens of Waters campaign by candidates is a reimbursement to the Waters campaign for costs related to the slate mailer the campaign creates for elections,” the complaint continues. “These reimbursements allow candidates to exceed campaign finance contribution limits. Since this money did not come from the candidate, Antonio Villaraigosa, or any campaign or agent of Mr. Villaraigosa this payment cannot be considered a reimbursement by the candidate, candidate campaign or agent of the candidate to the Citizens for Waters campaign committee.’”
One can only hope that Navarro wins that race against Waters and I think he stands a good chance of doing just that. Waters is about to be embroiled in a legal mess that will force her to fight for her literal life. That’s a tall order for a 79-year-old radical.
