Protestors Forced Ted Cruz Out Of A Restaurant Demanding To Know His Thoughts On Brett Kavanaugh

On Sept. 24, Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was publicly ridiculed and harassed for his support of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Cruz, who’s in the middle of a campaign against Democrat Beto O’Rourke, was at an Italian restaurant in Washington with his wife. Protesters learned of his whereabout and confronted the senator demanding to know his position on Kavanaugh, who is in the middle of an investigation into sexual assault allegations.

Senator Ted Cruz and his wife were confronted Monday by protesters chanting “We believe survivors.”

Sen. Cruz is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is holding hearing on Brett Kavanaugh’s possible lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. Three women have come forward accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault and the protesters confronted Cruz to get a definitive answer about his support of Kavanaugh.

“There are now three people who have come forward and who have said that Brett Kavanaugh has attacked them,” the woman said in the video. “I know that you’re close friends with him. Did you talk to him about that? Did you talk to him about his position?”

Kavanaugh — a Republican favorite to be on the Supreme Court — is facing accusations of sexual assault by three women.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was the first to come forward, saying the Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school in the ’80s. She will be testifying on Thursday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Cruz sits on that committee with has 21 members, 17 of them are males.

This week Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick both came forward with their own stories of sexual assault allegedly perpetrated by Kavanaugh. Ramirez reported that Kavanaugh had also sexually confronted her with his penis while they were at a party at Yale. Swetnick claims Kavanaugh was present when she was gang raped by a group of high school boys.

Kavanaugh is notably known for being the judge who attempted to block an undocumented teen from getting an abortion.

The 17-year-old was nine weeks into her first trimester and wanted to terminate the pregnancy. Since she was undocumented, officials tried to block her from getting the abortion. The case went to Judge Kavanaugh who also tried to prevent the abortion by delaying the process, which would in turn make it harder to approve if it was later in her pregnancy.

Some believe that if Kavanaugh almost prevented the teen from getting an abortion, he may also reverse abortion laws.

That is why people are concerned with how Cruz will vote. Cruz is a fan of Kavanaugh. CNN reports that in July, Cruz said: “By any measure, Judge Kavanaugh is one of the most respected federal judges in the country, and I look forward to supporting his nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States.”

O’Rourke released a statement saying Cruz should not have been harassed.

Well said, Beto.

Sen. Ted Cruz Fell Asleep While President Biden Spoke About Immigration

On Wednesday night, President Joe Biden gave a speech to the joint session of Congress. Biden’s speech covered everything from gun control, to COVID-19, to immigration reform, to his new $1.8 trillion “families plan”. But one person, in particular, didn’t seem to care about any of it. That person, of course, was Ted Cruz.

When President Joe Biden was in the middle of speaking about the current immigration crisis going on, the camera panned to Ted Cruz who appeared to be nodding off.

Joe Biden, speaking on immigration, was saying, “If you actually want to solve a problem, I’ve sent a bill to take a close look at it,” but Rafael Cruz, apparently, wasn’t awake to hear about the problem that needed to be solved. And it wouldn’t be the first time Cancún Cruz checked out when facing a crisis.

“Look, immigrants have done so much for America during this pandemic and throughout our history,” Biden continued, while Cruz was snoozing. “The country supports immigration reform. We should act. Let’s argue over it. Let’s debate over it. But let’s act.”

Twitter quickly exploded when they saw that Rafael Cruz was falling asleep. The hashtag #TedSnooze started to trend almost immediately.

“Since @tedcruz lives in Texas and Biden is talking about exactly the immigration issue he and his constituents scream about, could Ted stay awake for just a minute or two?” wrote one angry Twitter user.

“Daydreaming about being in Cancún and screwing his constituents over again,” wrote another.

But some weren’t so convinced that Cruz’s sleepiness was authentic. After all, this is a man who isn’t afraid to engage in theatrics to keep the spotlight on him. “My first & persistent thought seeing the pics: ‘That’s someone pretending to sleep to be a jerk [because] he has nothing better to offer. Troll,'” wrote one skeptical Twitter user.

Later, when he appeared on Fox News to recap Biden’s speech, Cruz wanted to make sure that the entire nation knew what he thought of Biden’s speech: boring.

“You could sum up tonight’s speech in three words: boring but radical,” he said to Sean Hannity. “The speech by design was calm and dulcet tones. I challenge you to remember a single line from the speech.”

Since then, Ted Cruz has been retweeting images of him “sleeping” during Biden’s speech like it somehow proves how “boring” Biden’s speech was. Cruz’s behavior lends credence to the theory that he was, in fact, faking his sleepiness.

Based on Sen. Ted Cruz’s past shenanigans, we wouldn’t put it past him to have pretended to fall asleep on Wednesday just to keep the headlines revolving around him. In the end, that’s what’s most important to him.

Doctored Image Of Ted Cruz In BDSM Gear Is Going Viral

An altered image of Sen. Ted Cruz in full BDSM gear is popping up all over social media right now. The conservative senator has sparked outrage from the nation several times during his career as a politician. Who could forget him taking a vacation to Mexico as Texans died from power outages connected to extreme winter weather?

This image of Sen. Ted Cruz first showed up in San Antonio.

Where you been Ted?! #fledcruz #cancruz #satx

The photo has gone viral on social media after being photographed in San Antonio. The doctored image put Sen. Cruz’s face on the half-naked body of a man wearing a leather chest harness, leather boots, small underwear, gloves, and holding a riding crop. The body has “PROUD BOYS” tattooed across the stomach.

Some are offended for the man whose body is used in the image.

The image has sparked a conversation about fat, slut, and queer-shaming. It is never okay to shame people for their bodies, their sexual orientation, or their sexuality. The acting of shaming these things creates humiliation and dangerous prejudices against people.

But, the use of this imagery has a very specific and pointed message.

Sen. Cruz has a long history of opposing Pride parades, marriage equality, and the inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in nondiscrimination orders. The senator also made headlines during his campaign for president for hiring an adult entertainer in an attack ad against Marco Rubio.

One of Sen. Cruz’s ads featured Amy Lindsay, who had a history of appearing in softcore pornographic films. The Cruz campaign tapped her to act in the ad and pulled it just as quickly when Lindsay’s acting history came to light.

Sen. Cruz is up for reelection in 2024.

Seems safe to say that some Texans are already trying to launch their own campaigns to defeat Sen. Cruz. The 2018 race for his seat against Beto O’Rourke showed the potential for unseating the incumbent as the demographics continue to shift in the Lone Star State. The 2020 election also showed that Texas could turn blue sooner than most ever expected.
