Movement to Imprison Barack Obama Heats Up: It's a Matter of Defending the Constitution, Says Senator Ted Cruz

Original post made by Liberty Preservation Project, Heritage Oaks, on May 30, 2013

Appearing on Fox News’ America Live this afternoon, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the Department of Justice, the Internal Revenue Service, and Barack Obama for “not respecting the Bill of Rights” through a variety of recent scandals including the snooping on journalism outlets, the purposeful targeting of conservative, anti-tax groups for additional tax scrutiny, and prosecuting cafe owners for not serving black folks.

“The conduct of the Justice Department does not inspire confidence,” Cruz told host Megyn Kelly. The DOJ’s snooping on reporters at the Associated Press and Fox News is “unprecedented,” he said, but it’s “part and parcel of a pattern from this administration of not respecting the Bill of Rights — not respecting the First Amendment, not respecting the Second Amendment, not respecting our Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights regarding drone strikes upon citizens of Texas.”

Cruz went on to assert that President Obama should “absolutely” call for Attorney General Eric Holder‘s resignation because of the AG’s “willingness to disregard the law.” Cruz cited last year’s “Fast and Furious” scandal, in which the Obama administration inherited a gun policy from the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, as an example of what he sees as the DOJ’s unlawfulness. "One really can't prosecute until the criminal (Holder) has been driven from office."

"Our rights are being trampled upon in so many respects, Megyn. Here in Texas, proud and patriotic shop owners are forced to serve whomever seeks service, even allowing them to sit at the same lunch counter with traditional Texans. Our Founding Fathers gave us the right to pursue life, liberty, and happiness, and if some cafe owners and restauranteers are happy excluding certain groups of people from their private property, well that should be their prerogative for heavens sake."

The Senator then speculated on the likelihood of Eric Holder and his boss, Barack Hussein Obama, going to prison. "I don't want to be the first to cast stones, but those who take liberty from others should expect to have their own liberty taken from them." "Besides," he added, "we need to act before all our patriotic citizens are stripped bare of all their weapons."

You don't realize Cholo that our country is being taken over by a half-black President and a Attorney General and now a soon to be Nat'l Security Advisor, all of whom lied about the most important scandal in US history, the Benghazi affair, who wants all our neighborhoods to look like Chicago. I've been to Chicago and I've never been so frightened in all my life. I mean every street corner, every market, every movie theatre.

Meanwhile, he's listening to each and every one of our phone calls, and he's reading our emails, determining whether we're being "bad" or "good." Just for writing this I'm probably going to be audited this coming year. Our only hope is to impeach this immoral man before we're all faced with the need to justify our tax statements.

Truth Troll is a real phony.....was really over-the-top last year.
Cruz is extreme enough, so your theatrics are not necessary.
But the fact is, Ted Cruz is a huge 'grandstander'. It's getting really tiresome, too. He was elected in Texas, but his mouth sure hurts Republicans in other states and districts. He won't win Nationally anytime soon, very likely NEVER !
