Ted Cruz vows to introduce ayatollah to ’72 virgins’ if he’s elected president

Published

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) vowed to tear up the Iran nuclear deal on his first day in office and threatened to kill the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, if he’s elected president.

The religious conservative crowd at the Values Voters summit lustily cheered his bloodthirsty comments during his appearance Friday morning at the annual event.

Cruz said he would “rip to shreds” the agreement approved by Congress, and he threatened to kill Iran’s leader if he did not give up his nuclear ambitions.

“If the ayatollah doesn’t understand that, we may have to help introduce him to the 72 virgins,” Cruz said, as the audience cheered loudly.

The GOP presidential candidate also said if a jihadist tried to enter a U.S.military recruiting station, he would be greeted by the gun barrels of “a dozen Marines.”

The conservative Christian audience again cheered enthusiastically.

Cruz opened his speech with a teleprompter joke and referred to President Barack Obama as “the world’s most powerful communist.”

He also suggested the Democratic debates should be held at the Leavenworth prison and joked that Obama should be incarcerated.

“If they can project a rainbow on the White House, maybe they can put bars on the windows,” Cruz said.

Writing an op-ed in The Atlantic on Wednesday, the Mattis highlighted the president's tendency toward fascism and authoritarianism. It prompted Graham to tell the general he doesn't know what he's talking about.

"To General Mattis, I think you're missing something here, my friend. You're missing the fact that the liberal media has taken every event in the last three-and-a-half years and laid it at the president's feet," Graham said on Fox News, according to Axios.

A police shooting in the California city of Vallejo has a community on edge, according to a report from NBC Bay Area.

Sean Monterrosa, 22, was kneeling when a Vallejo police officer shot and killed him. The shooting happened while police were trying to stop looters from invading a local Walmart.

"This individual appeared to be running toward the black sedan, but suddenly stopped, taking a kneeling position, and placing his hands above his waist, revealing what appeared to be the butt of a handgun," Vallejo Police Chief Shawny Williams said.

But Monterrosa was carrying a hammer, not a gun.

Published

on

Former House Republican Congressional Committee Investigative Counsel Sophia Nelson this week published a scathing column about her former party in which she encouraged Americans to simply give up hope that it will ever properly serve as a check on President Donald Trump.

In her latest Daily Beast column, Nelson called the GOP "hopeless" and declared that "the party of Lincoln is dead, dead, dead" after so many of its members stayed silent in the wake of Trump's widely panned photo-op stunt at St. John's Church in Washington D.C.
