GOOD ON HIM!

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) is a very brilliant man, so much so that even liberal Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said he was the smartest student he ever taught.

On Monday, Cruz unloaded on radically liberal actress Alyssa Milano like it was his job.

After all, he’s just imparting knowledge on someone who knows so very little.

Far-left activist Alyssa Milano inquired on Sunday about whether self-defense was a God-given right, and she promptly received a first-class education from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on the subject.

[…]

Milano’s tweet was directed at Texas State Rep. Matt Schaefer (R-Tyler), who delivered a blistering rebuke to anti-Second Amendment advocates in response to this weekend’s tragedy in Odessa, Texas, in which a man went on a shooting spree after being pulled over by troopers, taking the lives of 7 people and injuring over 20.

Can someone cite which passage of the Bible God states it is a god-given right to own a gun? This guy is unbelievable and is clearly owned by the gun lobby. #NoRA

Enter Cruz…

An excellent Q, worth considering carefully w/o the snark of Twitter. It is of course not the right to a modern-day firearm that is God-give but rather the right to Life & the right to Liberty. Essential to that right to life is the right to DEFEND your life & your family. 1/x

2/x The right to self-defense is recognized repeatedly in the Bible, eg Exodus 22:2: “If a thief is caught breaking in at night & is struck a fatal blow, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed.” (Note, though, verse 3 says it IS murder if during daylight (ie, not self-defense).

3/x The Declaration of Independence acknowledges our rights thusly: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

4/x And, for that reason, the Second Amendment provides “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, SHALL NOT be infringed.” It wasn’t to protect people’s ability to hunt, or to shoot target practice, but to defend their lives, their homes & their families.

5/x Stephen Willeford exercised that fundamental right when he risked his own life to stop the Sutherland Springs murderer, saving countless others as a result.

6/x St. George Tucker, one of the most important scholars in early America, explained the reasons behind the Second Amendment as follows: “This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature….”

7/x “…in most govts it has been the study of rulers to confine this right w/in the narrowest limits possible. Wherever…the right…to keep & bear arms is, under any…pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”

8/x That’s also why, post Civil War, disarming Black Americans was a critical objective of the KKK, and was memorialized in countless Jim Crow laws—to strip African-Americans of their God-given right to self-defense from violence.

9/x I’m a Texan. What happened in Midland-Odessa—and El Paso, Santa Fe & Sutherland Springs—was sick, deranged & horrifying. We need to do MUCH more to stop violent criminals & those w/ dangerous mental illness BEFORE they murder & I’m leading the fight in the Senate to do so.

10/x Playing politics w/ these deranged crimes—and trying to use them as an excuse to violate the constl rights of law-abiding citizens—won’t make anybody safer. Forcible gun confiscation (as some 2020 Dems urge) won’t prevent mass-murders. But it would weaken our self-defense.

If a man as ridiculous as Joe Biden can ascend to vice president of the United States then anything is possible, kids. On Saturday, Biden told a story of the time he ran into a gang leader named “Corn Pop.” Check this out… This is BIZARRE!

Corn Pop was waiting by Biden’s car “with three guys and straight razors. Not a joke.” “And I looked at him, but I was smart then, I said first of all, I said when I tell you to get off the board you get off the board, and I’ll kick you out again, but I shouldn’t have called you Esther Williams, I apologize for that,” Biden said, revealing Corn Pop was stunned by the apology and decided to not attack him. Reactions: This is the weirdest story I’ve ever heard a politician tell. Not to mention it’s completely made up.

Omar Just Compared Migrant Detention Centers to ‘Slave Camps In Africa During the Slave Trade’

And she’ll get away with it…

Ilhan Omar probably thinks Ilhan Omar might just be the kindest, most intelligent member of Congress. She’d be wrong. Not only is Omar a radical anti-Semite who has shown that she doesn’t love America nor Israel, but she’s also kind of a [redacted]. Check this out… WATCH: Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar compares migrant detention centers to slave camps in Africa during the slave trade. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1173023974235746304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173023974235746304&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F432519-ilhan-omar-compares-illegal-alien-detention-centers-to-slave-camps-during-slave-trade%2F Omar will continue to say silly things so long as liberals control the mainstream media. And that doesn’t look like it’s going to change anytime soon. From RealClear Politics: Rep. Ilhan Omar addressed controversial comments about slavery, U.S. border patrol, and 9/11, and decried the “implied intent” that critics impose on her statements. “I’m only controversial because people seem to want the controversy,” Omar said. She also responded to Nicholas Haros, the son of a 9/11 victim who spoke out against Omar at the 18th-anniversary event in New York while wearing a “some people did something” T-shirt. “9/11 was an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us, and I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the families of the victims of 9/11 must feel,” Omar said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVrrM2wenhk
