Ted Cruz keeps cracking jokes about guns as Americans mourn Charleston terror attack

Published

on

While the country was still in shock over the shooting deaths of nine black churchgoers in Charleston at the hands of Dylann Roof, Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) was cracking jokes before an Iowa audience about gun control.

According to the Huffington Post, Cruz — who was campaigning for president in the state — told the audience, “You know the great thing about the state of Iowa is, I’m pretty sure you all define gun control the same way we do in Texas — hitting what you aim at.”

Cruz’s comments came just hours after telling reporters that he was shocked by the events at the Charleston AME church, saying, “A sick and deranged man went and prayed for an hour with the congregants in an historically black church and then, for reasons that we don’t fully understand murdered nine innocent souls.”

The Texas senator then pivoted and blasted Democrats over gun control, saying, “It’s sad to see the Democrats take a horrific crime and try to use it as an excuse not to go after people with serious mental illness or people who are repeat felons or criminals but rather try to use it as an excuse to take away the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens.”

Cruz also demonstrated his shooting skills at a gun range by shooting an AR15 at a target.

If Trump really believed he was falsely accused ‘that is not a corrupt motive’ for removing the special counsel: Bill Barr

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr told Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that if President Donald Trump really and truly thought he was being falsely accused of collaborating with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election, that it was "not a corrupt motive" for firing Robert Mueller, a stunning statement from the nation's highest law enforcement officer.

"As a matter of law, I think the department's position would be that the president can direct the termination or the replacement of a special counsel," said Barr. "And as a matter of law, the obstruction statute does not reach that conduct."

Trump ‘shirking his duty to protect the country’ by ignoring Russia election threat: Ex-CIA agent

Published

on

Ex-CIA agent Evan McMullin told CNN on Wednesday that President Donald Trump was "shirking his duty to protect the country" by ignoring the fact that Russia plans to attack the 2020 election.

"He's shirking his responsibility to protect the country," McMullin said. "We are in a new era of information warfare."

"Countries can be defeated without a shot being fired," he went on. "We just learned from the Mueller report that the president was aware that we were undergoing, as a country, an information warfare attack during 2016. He sought to benefit from it."

"A lot of times we say 'look, the president's ego is wounded' when we talk about how the Russians attacked us, and may have helped him get elected," McMullin continued. "But I actually think that we are a little naive to buy into that narrative. I think that is a fig leaf for the president. How can we ignore that this president barely won the electoral college?"
