Sen. Ted Cruz Schools the Media on the Need for New Voting Rights Bill
"The media want to know about the voting rights building the poll, the poll people support changes in support for voting rights and so forth. Here's our man. Ted Cruz. Cut 10 Hat Tip C Span goat. You talked about how this was a show of force. One of the reasons is the press coverage so far of this bill. Has been virtually non existent. You're right. If you do polling on do you support protecting the right to vote? I'm amazed that's not 100%. Protecting the right to vote is a wonderful thing. You know if you also do polling on do you support the fuzzy kittens and puppy law? That has really good support in the polls, too, If you actually asked people about what is in this bill, It is incredibly unpopular. Democrats don't want to talk about getting rid of voter ID. Because 70 to 80% of Americans supported a majority of Democrats supported a majority of African American support it. I don't want to talk about that Democrats don't want to talk about getting rid of the ballot harvesting laws. Because people recognize that invites corruption When you have ballot harvesting, you get a paid operative from the DNC. Who goes in to say, a nursing home. And collects dozens or hundreds of ballots, some of whom some of which are from people who may not be competent to vote. And the reason it invites fraud is are sitting right there. And if that person votes the wrong way. There's nothing to stop but unscrupulous operative from just throwing that ballot in the trash can and only mailing in the votes that vote the way they want. That's why Jimmy Carter. Said. Ballot harvesting invites voter fraud and Jimmy Carter also said Along with James Baker, believe 15 or so years ago. That these mail drop voting activities. A mail in voting activities were highly susceptible to fraud. Of course, the media know all this. The media know all this and don't give a damn

They didn't know. And when you tell people this if they're unaware of it they're shot. It's not a day that the slaves were freed right. It's the day that the african americans in galveston found out that they had been freed which was more than two years after it had happened exactly so if this guy signed a piece of paper f far away on the east coast. The said. The slaves were freed. Well we won't tell them for awhile. Maybe we won't tell them ever right. They have found out more than two years later that they had been free but they didn't put up with that anymore right. There have been roadblocks at every step of the way on the march to equality and this is something that was supported by john. Cornyn ted cruz. I give senator cruz credit.

"Get around to that bill. So she says they're working on the language of that now she's making a point that's important when When the shelby county decision came down a gutting the key piece of the voting rights act. That was a less conservative. supreme court. Did that right now. We're talking about supreme court where donald trump got to place two justices there and probably would be You know more More likely to strike down some federal legislation. That would have to do with pre clearance. Look the argument from a lot of conservatives. That i've heard on this is you can't judge all these states anymore by what used to happen. Decades ago they'll say that we've made all this progress and sure they're still discrimination. That happens but for the most part. We have made serious progress on these kinds of issues and so to punish states. That's where they put it to continue to punish dates for the way people used to act in those places is simply not fair to make texas and other southern states go running to the federal government for permission basically to change their election. Laws isn't fair. Argument on the other side would be think about the kinds of things that were just in a law. The proposed law that was on track to pass just in the last couple of weeks that had to do with what kinds of things things that we reported here like eliminating polling places in areas heavily populated by minorities that was that was proposed by the texas senate this year. So when people say you can't judge. Do you know the way it used to happen. You know decades ago it was the sixties and seventies and you know everything about You know everything was about dominance of the white race at that time and all of this and discrimination was much more rampant but they just proposed that a few months ago yep here in texas. So we'll see where this goes in congress now given everything we've said you'll love what senator cruz at say about the senator ted cruz. Talking about the idea that the democrats are trying to grab power with the for the people act and the john lewis voting rights act. He says republicans. Jeremy have never tried to do anything like this. And this is not about the right to vote when you have millions of illegal aliens registered to vote when you have felons registered to vote when you're inviting voter fraud through striking down photo. Id loss through striking down ballot harvesting laws. What you're doing is stealing the right to vote from legal citizens this is brazen it cynical. And it's worth noting that when republicans had the white house and both houses of congress. We didn't try this. We didn't try to rig the system so that our side could never lose an election. This is an abuse of power.
Cruz Ramps up Criticisms of Big Business
"Let's talk about ted cruz in a new opinion piece for the wall street journal. Senator ted cruz pretended as though he wants to hold corporations accountable. But it's not due to their mistreatment of workers or the fact that they tend to severely underpaid the very people who make revenue for them. It's because he's worried about culture and how corporations are engaging in it. It's titled your woke. Money is no good here. Where ted cruz pretends if he's not gonna take corporate pack money argues the corporations have taken advantage of republicans for too long. I won't take their pack dollars anymore says crews so first off. Let's just acknowledge and get out of the way the fact that we don't believe him i personally don't believe him. I think that in one way or the other he will take money from corporations because otherwise how is he going to do what he does. This is this. Is ted cruz bread and butter. And the fact that he's pretending like he's not going to take corporate. Donations is ridiculous. But moving. Moving aside or moving to the other part that i wanted to bring up you know. He angrily writes about how these corporations are speaking out against georgia's voter suppression law. And he believes that that qualifies as engaging in whoa culture. Don't to be clear. I do think that the democratic party has a problem with quote unquote woke movies. And get to that in a minute. And i want people to understand that. It's actually a very nuanced issue. That is hurting the democratic party when it comes to local elections when it comes to the federal elections and we'll discuss it but crews argues that had these watch me woke it up. Ceo's actually read the bill. Instead of parenting the radical left talking points. They have discovered. They have no idea what they were talking about. A clutch of businesses or business leaders tried to win woke twitter points and clown themselves instead now. Obviously none of this is true. Corporations after being pressured to speak out actually did say that the voter suppression law. Georgia is a problem and it is a problem.

"Well doesn't that take the narrative that it was the rally where donald trump said. I know many of you will peacefully patriotically march to the capital. So your voices will be heard. I thought i thought. Donald trump incited this quote insurrection. And you wanna talk about double standards. Well of course we have. I'm gonna take trump out tonight. Maxine waters and you get their basically you create a crowd new powell them into the grocery store. You down did not want anywhere anymore. Or kamala harris after the police precinct was burned to the ground and the riots in minneapolis. You know she's out there helping to raise bail funds for the people that are in were responsible and involved In that insurrection or riot depending on word what words you might like seems like the word of the the month happens to be insurrection. And so if you apply the same standards would apply to kamla. Harris wouldn't apply to maxine waters or chuck schumer on the steps of the supreme court. Threatening gorsuch. cavenaugh wouldn't apply to nancy pelosi. You applauded the the those that storm the capital and wisconsin and she praised them Wouldn't it applied to joe biden. And i'm gonna take him in the back of the gym and beat the hell out of them. Magin any conservative today. Say i wish. I could take joe biden in the back of the gym and beat the hell out of what the would the response be probably and should my opinion result in a phone call or at least a visit from the secret service but threatening the life of a president or any elected official. That's why i keep saying we need a nine eleven style commission to see. We can never allow this to happen again. It can happen and now that we know the pipe bombs are found near the capital believed to have been placed the night before according to the fbi. Well that means that they planned it. They orchestrated it and that it wasn't directly connected in any way it was planned ahead of time and one story saying yeah actually. They entered from the front and the back simultaneously. How did we miss. How do we not have people law enforcement ready when a few hundred thousand people you know. We're going to be marching over there. This can happen in this country. It's not about politics. That's right doesn't stop a cossio. Cortez from trying to say that Ted cruz tried to have been murdered last week. That is that irresponsible rhetoric to yet is and this is where we find ourselves in this country. Talk about and information crisis in this country. You know just the latest example and this is why republicans should not be any part of this. Now they're saying well maybe we'll send you know you got a censure the president then you gotta do pelosi to biden tacoma harassed to maxine waters in every other democrat chuck schumer ply the same standards and stop rushing to judgment the country's been put through four almost five years of hell and lies and they just continue.

"Shown to okay all right to get next. Tumbleweed blows across senator. Ted cruz is our guest. The man tapped by president donald trump to make the case before the supreme court. Wouldn't it be great if you do. How fired up are you at the opportunity to make things right to set things right to make sure every vote is counted. Well it needs to be done. I'm excited for the opportunity to do it. And i will say with your The music you just played i. I may be inspired to go. Get me a poncho. I'm thinking you walk in with with a six iron on your hip like martin robinson outlaw. Josey wales tip your hat to the side you know. Do you know that. Every supreme court justice to this day still has at their feet behind the bench us. Pretend that's very judge roy. Bean i like it. They use them for trash cans now but they're still there. That is awesome. What a great bit of tradition. So how does this happen. So does the president ask you. You don't have to reveal. they don't want to. But how does it happen that you are at what an honour well at so. The president asked Tuesday nights president called me on the phone. It was right after the texas case had been filed and Okay do the call is like ten. He's like senator. I don't know he calls me ten. That that So he called on my cell. I was having dinner at Capital groom which Having a steak which is you know is not a not an unusual choice of of meals and You know years ago to got mad at me and her and her mom pointed out said sweetheart only complain about your husband likes good steak. Y- you're doing. All right in the matrimonial lottery of life Not i'm not saying for the record. That's our only complaint but That that's a different story. So i met dinner cell phone calls. President says seeing this texas case. I said sure it was filed earlier in the day and he said well look. This is the case challenging. Everything he said. Would you be willing to argue it. i said sure. I'd be happy to and i did tell them. At the time. I said look getting the supreme court to take any case. It's tough it's uphill The numbers in any given year there between eight and ten thousand appeals filed at the supreme court typically. They grant about eighty So in a given year it's about one percent This one is a little bit different because it's a lawsuit between states and the constitution gives original jurisdiction to the supreme court. Here case like that but that being said the court can still declined to hear it and unfortunately just a few days ago. They declined to hear the appeal out of pennsylvania that that i had publicly urged the court to take and and that pennsylvania case like the texas case. the lawyers. They're also asked me to argue. That one and i told him i would argue. That one of the court took it so so they've turned one down are ready and we'll find out. It could be as soon as today. We'll find out whether or not the court's gonna take this one. It was december twelfth. Two thousand s. You know because you were on the team when the court ruled a bush victory so time is kind of the essence here right. We're all limbo said. We would expect a a quick decision We would expect a quick decision. The court set a deadline of three. Pm yesterday for the defendant states to respond so they all responded yesterday And i think the odds are pretty good. That will get get something out of the court sometime today. I think there you may have some justices writing opinions In order to hear the case it takes five votes normally takes four. But i'm the procedural posture this cases it would take five votes and so i don't know if they're the five votes or not but i. I think there's a good chance we'll know that by the end of the day so it takes five votes not for thought it only to show it takes four votes to grant sir shourie which is essentially a permissive appeal. This is not a petition for social. Maury this is a motion for leave to file a complaint and to grant emotion takes five votes. Have you already begun the deep dive into your preparation again. I had the gun the preparations. But but if the court takes the case they'll set an argument date and and and if they do that it will become about about sixteen to eighteen hours a day of preparation. And will you bring a team in with you around here sure You know unfortunately the way. The supreme court is doing arguments right now. They're doing my telephone which is really Irritating I've argued nine times that the cord and every other argument has always been in person in the courtroom. I talked to a number of spring court arguments who've done done arguments by phone because because of covid and the justices are not spring chickens. They're not doing arguments in person. So my anticipation is it would be a telephonic argument And i would bring in a number of experienced supreme court litigators to really the whole point of an oral argument Is the questions. So it's not really you know i. It's not an argument. Sometimes people think of spring court argument is like getting great or ration-. You know martin luther king. I have a dream. Supreme court argument is nothing like that. spring court argument when they're in person you're standing at the podium The podium is incredibly close to the band you could almost reach out and shake hands with the chief justices with chief justice that close and the argument consist of the justices. Just peppering you with questions and so ninety percent of the preparation is doing the hard thinking of okay. What are the hardest questions in this case. And what are the answers and a lot of times. The way i like to prepare for an argument is to get really smart people around the table and rather than actually don't do a lot of moot s- i've done. I've done a lot of those before you know mood as a practice argument what i think is more helpful is to sit around the table and just talk about okay if they come at you with this. What's the right answer and just to to brainstorm and in this case there are some very hard questions and so If we have an argument it's going to be a pretty intense period of preparation. I'm trying to get ready for the preparation period. If that makes sense that makes all the sense in the world. Can you hold with us for just a moment. Sure quick reminder if you'll go to michael berry show dot com. That's our official website. And while you're there by your official michael berry show gear and wear it. Proudly we appreciate you. That's all it michael berry. Show dot com. We continue our conversation with senator ted cruz who has been asked by the president to present arguments before the supreme court should the supreme court choose to hear this case. A great honor an incredible honor. It would be his tenth trip before the supreme court and i would argue the most important that he the most important that he would ever have made before the supreme court of maybe anywhere else. What is.

"Another example is religious liberty. Religious Liberty. Cases I talk about the case of an ordained versus Perry in. Texas. Where I defended the Ten Commandments Monument on the state capitol grounds, it's been there since nineteen sixty, one, an atheist, a homeless man filed a lawsuit seeking to tear it down. We went to the Supreme Court and we won five four. There were four justices ready to say bring out the bulldozers knockouts knockdown the monument. And we're only one justice away from from losing religious liberty. That's true on right after right after right Horrifying. Now, he would just gather together ANTIFA and black lives matter and they would just put ropes around and pull it down. But in those days I, guess he was a bit more civilized. Well Y- you may well be right and and look you. You look at cases right now. we're seeing politicians that typically democratic politicians abusing their power and targeting religious liberty targeting churches, ordering churches to shutdown California Gavin Newsom, banning you from singing at Church and and and cases have gone to the Supreme Court a couple of times saying thing listen you can't treat. Religious Liberty Worse than everything else you can't allow protests and shutdown church churches. You've got to be even handed. You can't discriminate against people of faith. The Supreme Court rejected those claims five four with John. Roberts sadly, voting with the Liberals That's fundamentally wrong the the First Amendment protects religious liberty and and what these left wing politicians are doing persecuting churches is wrong and it's unconstitutional. Senator Ted Cruz is our guest. Senator I'm curious your written this book one vote away. How supreme how a single Supreme Court seat can change history? What is your writing process you a pen and paper guide? Do you bang it out on the keys? Do you dictate what do you do? You. Know actually I worked with a young lawyer and writer Fella named Josh Hammers very talented. He was a law clerk for for judge, Jim Ho and and is a very talented young lawyer. And hand we would get on the phone and he would record the conversations and and I would essentially dictate. Each chapter we did I just sort of pay up and down my living room and dictate a chapter. It take an hour or two to dictate a chapter where I tell the inside war stories what was really going on and Bush versus Gore what was really going on in Heller versus. District of Columbia the big Second Amendment case that I represented thirty one states and so I tell the war stories and analyze it. He would transcribe what I dictated and Josh would would edit it and then and and clean it up a little bit and he's very talented and so he improved the text. He would then send it back to me and and and then starting from that that text I would then edited pretty vigorously and go back and forth and sometimes I'd ask him you know, hey, own research this or go research that southern sort of be follow ups. But we basically go back and forth and and that's that's where the Texaco came from..

How do we restore order? Well it's going to. It's going to take both state and local government as well as federal government. Federal Government is best positioned to address this kind of violence and lawlessness after it occurs because we don't have FBI agents walking the beat. and in fact when when the real violent started around may twenty fifth six and so forth. we started using our joint terrorist task forces around the country and there thirty five of them around the country it involves all state and local jurisdictions all the federal agencies and it's the system we designed to follow terrorists, and now they are starting to go full bore cranking out investigations indictments against the people who are involved in this violence so we've had scores of indictments already from for such things as arson destruction of federal property, things like that and we. We have right now about five hundred investigations underway, so it's picking up pace, and we are committed to holding accountable. The people engaged in this, but we still have to try to stop it before it happens, and that's where the burden is right now on state and local and in many places. They're not stepping up to the plate there. They're not doing their job, so I know it's early, but but how much indications are y'all saying of coordination planning rather than spontaneous acts of violence, right? We are we are seeing Strong evidence of of coordination and many of these violent. Episodes. From the mentally what you have here is you have demonstrators. Some of them go there with the intent of demonstrating, but you have a group of provocateurs agitators, sometimes a significant group that tried to convert those into violent activity and They seem to be very well coordinated when they show up a number of Moore associated with the movement called Antiga, but they go by various names, but frequently anarchistic.

Anyway, yes, my soul scathing slowly sliding out of you. That's the Ted Cruz effect now for a long time cruises. Ambition was to become the attorney general at the United States. The rather than getting good with Mitt Romney and try to wangle a job as attorney general if he somehow one and two thousand twelve Ted Cruz made the in retrospect wise decision to run for Senate in two thousand twelve instead one in the primary and that victory was one of the most stunning upsets of the entire year lose essentially swept into office by a wave of tea party sentiment. That was still a big deal back in two thousand twelve he won the general election as well. And just like that Ted Cruz was one step closer to his dream of becoming the president hears. Young Ted Cruz fresh-faced looking good. I mean, that's all very, yes. He's just such a tweet such a deep. I love the pictures of Ted Cruz with a gun. Oh my God. Because he holds a gun like someone who's had them described him before. Right. That's about it. What they are aware of what they have you seen shoot the bacon. Oh god. Yeah. That's a bad so embarrassing. Yeah. Where he's he's trying to cook the Baker. That's like what do you like, wait? And he shoots it instead. No, no. You can cook bacon on a clash on any kind of gun that has a long enough exposed. The big around these shoots it he'd sit up, and then he eats it. And because he's a real Texan, man. I used to live in Texas and did a bunch of shooting, and we would for fun. You do stuff like crack eggs in the receiver of a Kalashnikov or something you'd like line it with foil, and you can cook eggs, you know, a couple of rounds in the eggs will cook. And it's like a fun thing drunk people do on the weekends. Not congressional candidates right to prove your like Texan clout. Like, no, Ted. This is no you're not you're not. It's your Canadian, right? Right. Pay me, okay with that. So the next year after being elected two thousand thirteen Senator Cruz made a name for himself in Washington, and by many accounts, not a good one one of his first moments of prominence was arguing against the women's health protection. Act crew said that this act which would have essentially there was a law in Texas that cut down by like half, the number of abortion clinics that were allowed to be open in the state by putting a new restrictions on them. This was a federal act that was supposed to basically stop that law and stop other laws like that all around the nation. So that women could have more access to safe sexual health care and abortions Ted Cruz called this a manifestation of a war on women, and he claimed Planned Parenthood was unnecessary because there wasn't a shortage rubbers term. He's yes. Rouse, really grow. Sex Hafer has weighed in Ted Cruz actual sex ever. Oh, yeah. Now in late two thousand thirteen Ted Cruz was one of several House Republicans who threatened to the United States that they would shut down the government and refused to pass a new spending Bill if that spending Bill included any money for ObamaCare. Cruise was one of the main architects of the shutdown and he spoke for twenty one hours in order to help delay the vote he read green eggs and ham on the Senate floor for a section of this. Politics is serious business. The two thousand thirteen shutdown lasted seventeen days and cost the United States estimated twenty four billion dollars. Ted cruz. Now, he was not the only Republican, obviously who supported the shutdown not the only Republican who are getting into the women's health protection. Act. One of the things that stands out about Ted Cruz is the sheer vitriol at contempt that he's held in by other Republicans really the thing that's remarkable about him. And it seems to have started with John McCain. So McCain got miffed at Ted during that twenty one hour speech, he gave arguing in favor of the shutdown because crews compared Republicans who voted to approve the spending Bill with Nazi appeasers. You don't know what you're talk you. Go to the nineteen forties. Nazi germany. Look. We saw in Britain Neville Chamberlain who told the British people accept the Nazis. Yes..

Many of Cruise's former fellow students and teachers do agree that Ted Cruz was widely seen as very intelligent and gifted was the valedictorian of his class in one thousand nine hundred eight he was always outspoken conservative and always clear that his goal in life was to get into politics. It seems like rather than becoming popular by acting less. Nerdy. Cruz actually gained most of what popularity he did have from his nerdiness. Second Baptist was a big speech and debate school and Ted Cruz was fantastic debater. Speaking of someone who was in speech and debate in Texas. It is definitely a community that attracts outspoken annoying opinionated conservative kids, which I was when I was Ted Cruz age in an Texan high school. So I can guess what a lot of those conversations were. Yeah. Yeah. Now when he graduated in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight seventeen year old Ted Cruz wrote this description of his hopes and dreams in his yearbook upon graduation, Ted hopes to attend Princeton University in major in political science and economics from there. He wants to attend law school possibly Harvard and achieve a successful law practice he then wants to pursue his real goal. A career in politics, Ted like to run for various political offices and eventually achieve strong enough reputation and track record to run for and win. President of the United States presidency has been Ted Cruz golden the very beginning maniac. Yeah. That's all. Yeah. I mean, I was a sixteen year old conservative debater who wanted to be the president. And then I became an eighteen year old who had to pay rent and realize that wasn't a job. A good person. Once also like this video of him from high school. I think if that's gonna get into. Yeah. So in a video filmed in one thousand nine hundred right after graduation. Ted Cruz lays out his ambitions in a much less polished fashion, and we're just going to play this whole video for y'all. Have you both seen this now? Oh, good. Katie. I'm excited for this. Cody, I love it. Just can't wait live through it again. So let's listen to eighteen year old Ted Cruz talk about his hopes and dreams, Katie. I think you should be able to at least see him because he's he's a character. Went on my. What you want me to do what I wanna do in life. Well. Do. On my guy play rate. Well. Roll everything powerful. That was of course, a fake Ted Cruz campaign ad using that now normally it would be unfair. I did worse stuff than that. When I was eighteen. Oh, yeah. I don't want anyone seeing the videos I made when I was eighteen. No, no, no. The thing. That's interesting about this is that this is probably the best thing. Ted Cruz ever did from a moral standpoint shares he's not actively harming anyone in that video other than perhaps for the camera man, right? So Ted did get to go to Princeton any went to Harvard after that. But his roommate at Princeton was a guy named Craig Mazin. Now Craig would later go on to write the screenplays for the hangover movie trilogy. Okay. Good on germ, Craig. I guess. Yeah. All right for himself that that took a Princeton education. Interesting way to things do Princeton's. Yeah. For sure. Life's funny like that nothing against it of all of the movies that star, you know, the guy who was sexy for a hot minute. And then he got huge any played that sniper who lied about Jesse the body Ventura. That guy Brad Cooper's. Aw. I thought you does he still alive? He has. He's looking real hot in his new movie stars born good director, the lady Gaga movie and started. She's still alive. Yeah. Fantastic. They're all still living. Good. I didn't Sophie is covering her her face..

I mean, Trump could do just as much to energize the democratic basis, the Republican base, but on the reverse. That resources coming to Texas to defend Ted Cruz extraordinary things. So there's a group called the club for growth that is spending for groups. And generally, I promise you, they would probably rather be spending somewhere else. They invest in house races and Senate races, and so this Texas is becoming a money pit for the Republican party. And I think there's a scenario where we could wake up the day after the election in a roar has lost several of these competitive US house races that have never been competitive before stay in the GOP column, and people in Texas may say will, well, that was a failure.
