Ted Cruz Was Called Lucifer And Satanists Are NOT Having It

Former Speaker of the House John Boehner has come out of retirement to serve the public good. No, he’s not running for office again — he’s telling the world just how awful Ted Cruz really is.

John Boehner was recently at Stanford talking to students about his time in office when he went a little off script.

The former Speaker of the House had a few choice words for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz that rubbed more than one person the wrong way.

When moderator David M. Kennedy asked Boehner what he thought of Cruz, he responded by saying he was the devil.

But, Teddy held back his tears and answered the question with his head held high.

“I’ve never worked with John Boehner. Truth of the matter is, I don’t know the man,” Cruz told the press. “I’ve met John Boehner two or three times in my life. If I have said 50 words in my life to John Boehner, I’d be surprised.”

But wait, there’s more!

The Satanic Temple also weighed in. They didn’t like the idea of Cruz being compared to Lucifer.

“Boehner’s comment is illustrative of how well past time it is to adjust our mythologies to reflect our realities,” Satanic Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves told Patheos’ Friendly Atheist. “Cruz’s failures of reason, compassion, decency and humanity are products of his Christian pandering, if not an actual Christian faith. It grows tedious when pedophile priests and loathsome politicians are conveniently dismissed as Satanic, even as they spew biblical verse and prostrate themselves before the cross, recruiting the Christian faithful. Satanists will have nothing to do with any of them.”

Not even the Satanists want to be associated with Cruz, like, daayyuummm.

Sen. Joe Manchin Calls On Senate To Expel Sen. Ted Cruz After Insurrection

Update January 21, 2021

Americans won’t soon forget the violent mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Politicians on both sides of the aisle and American citizens have called for those responsible to be held accountable. That includes Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, who has been blamed for encouraging the insurrection.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., is calling on the Senate to expel Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Sen. Manchin is a Democrat from West Virginia and holds a lot of power in the newly split Senate. Democrats picked up two Senate seats with Sen. Jon Ossoff and Sen. Raphael Warnock winning runoff elections on Jan. 5. Sen. Manchin is a notoriously moderate Democrat representing a very red state setting him up to be the most important vote in the current Senate. He is the latest politician to call on Sen. Ted Cruz’s expulsion from the Senate after Jan. 6.

“That should be a consideration,” Sen. Manchin said about the 14th Amendment being used to oust the Texas senator. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof,” reads Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. “But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Original: Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was one of the most outspoken politicians pushing conspiracy theories that the election was stolen. Video of Sen. Cruz talking to a crowd about defending liberty is going viral as members of Congress and constituents call for him to resign.

Sen. Ted Cruz is facing calls to resign as some accuse him of inciting the deadly Capitol Hill riots.

Sen. Ted Cruz has been a loyal supporter of President Trump since losing to him in the 2016 primaries. Sen. Cruz has voted in President Trump’s favor over the years and was one of the loudest voices casting doubt on the fair 2020 elections.

The above video is from a campaign rally in Georgia, just days before the surreal scenes of Trump supporters invading the Capitol. Many are pointing to his rhetoric as inciting and promoting what happened.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one member of Congress calling out Sen. Cruz.

Sen. Cruz, along with Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., are facing relentless calls to resign from constituents, colleagues, and political pundits. People are horrified with the attack on the democratic system Jan. 6 and see these two senators are the most culpable. The two Republican senators are even facing these calls from other Republicans.

“Some senators, for political gain, misled supporters about their ability to challenge the election results — some even sent out fundraising emails while insurrectionists stormed the Capitol,” Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., tweeted Thursday echoing the claim that Sen. Cruz used the terrifying riot to fundraise. “That stops now — Republicans ought to focus on countering the Democrats’ radical agenda.”

Sen. Cruz tried pushing back and calling Rep. AOC a liar but, receipts.

A growing coalition of bipartisan senators and congresspeople are calling for the resignation or expulsion of Sen. Cruz and Sen. Hawley. The calls are being echoed by major newspapers and Americans who witnessed the mob breaching Capitol Hill. Both the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and The Kansas City Star are calling for Sen. Hawley to resign.

Sen. Ted Cruz Faces Backlash Over Insensitive Tweet About Thanksgiving And Covid

Sen. Ted Cruz Faces Backlash Over Insensitive Tweet About Thanksgiving And Covid

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas has been criticized for misleading the public on Covid. Last week, the Texan faced backlash after criticizing a Democratic senator for wearing a mask while inside the Senate. Covid cases are surging in all states with Texas among the worse, but Sen. Cruz will do anything to protect his Thanksgiving.

Sen. Ted Cruz is taking a big stand in the name of Covid community spread.

The week before Thanksgiving, Sen. Cruz posted a tweet implying his stance to gather for Thanksgiving. Health experts in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are urging Americans to avoid gatherings and traveling for the holiday season as cases spike to all-time highs.

“Right now, we’re alarmed, again, with the exponential increase in cases and hospitalists and death,” Dr. Henry Walke said in a press conference. “Amidst this critical phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving period.”

The Republican politician is facing backlash for the insensitivity of the tweet.

Cases of the virus are surging as Americans tire of social distancing with no leadership or assistance from the federal government. Millions of Americans are being forced into renewed lockdown measures to prevent a post holiday surge as cases continue to climb. The U.S. has experienced an 18-day trend of more than 100,000 cases daily.

The U.S. needs to heed the science and experience in Canada. In October, Canadians gathered for Thanksgiving celebrations and it spelled disaster. Six weeks after the holiday, Canada broke Covid records and the country was faced with the worst of the outbreak.

The tweet is more upsetting to people from the senator’s homestate.

El Paso dealt with a devastating spike. The Texas county was hard hit as Covid surged leading to mobile morgues being packed with bodies of Covid victims. County officials were pleading with El Pasoans to do their part in making sure the virus doesn’t spread. Sen. Cruz’s tweet shows a lack of compassion for Texans suffering from the pandemic as Thanksgiving approaches.

Some Twitter users are pointing out Texas’ food crisis creating long lines for food banks.

Texas, which became the first state to record 1 million infections, has seen an increase in the need for food. According to CNN, The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) gave out about 600,000 pounds of food for 25,000 people in the area. Millions are losing unemployment benefits after Covid and the lack of a federal response prompted mass layoffs across the nation in various industries, especially the hospitality industry.

We have to be vigilant as the holidays approach to protect our loved ones.

More than 250,000 people have died from Covid since the virus started to spread in the U.S. More than 12 million Americans have been diagnosed with the virus that Sen. Cruz dismisses. It is important to remember that you need to wear masks, social distance, and wash your hands to slow the virus’ spread. We are getting closer to a vaccine but we still have to put in the work to protect ourselves.
