Calls out hypocrisy of Democrats
‘Their side is funded with dark money and massively!’
If you want to understand how America teeters on the thin edge of freedom, please watch one of my favorites. At Tuesday’s 10-13-20 at the Senate Judiciary hearing, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, holds a seminar on the liberal attacks on our Bill of Rights and the Democrat(ic) party’s hypocrisy.
Cruz takes apart Sheldon Whitehouse’s conspiracy theory — that “dark money” is behind Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the supreme court. He points out that the dark-money Demand Justice is spending dollars in the seven figures to oppose her nomination. He reports that 14 of the top biggest political donors give to Democrats almost exclusively and only three give most of their money to Republicans.
Abortion — Even if Roe v Wade should be overturned, abortion would still be available in states that legislate its legality, Cruz noted. (Even the Notorious RBG said Roe was poorly reasoned.) Democrats say they favor “reasonable restrictions” But four of nine justices ruled against the federal ban on partial birth abortion.
Speech — Cruz points out that the kind of supreme court justice Democrats want to appoint voted in favor of banning books, as Citizens United would have allowed in an election campaign season. Justices in Citizens ruled in favor of free speech but only by a 5-4 margin.
Religious liberty — A lower court ordered a monument to WW1 casualties be covered up because it bore a Christian cross. The Supreme Court overturned that order but only by a 5-4 vote.
Second Amendment — The court’s ruling allowing citizens to possess firearms in Heller v D.C. passed by only 5-4.
⇒ Whether Joe Biden will pack the court, Sen. Cruz reminded, you don’t deserve to know. So much for democracy.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: This is 31 minutes that America needs to see, for academic credit at our universities, before voting, for the survival of our republic.
