Ted Cruz: 41 Senators Have Signed On To Repeal The First Amendment

[youtube_sc url=”http://youtu.be/tX5VG0jToK8″]

(Penny Starr)  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told attendees at a Family Research Council pastors retreat that Senate Democrats want to limit free speech through amending the Constitution.

 “When you think it can’t get any worse, it does,” Cruz said at the FRC’s Watchmen on the Wall 2014 event in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. “This year, I’m sorry to tell you, the United States Senate is going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment.”

Calling these “perilous, perilous times,” Cruz said Senate Democrats have said they are ready to vote on the amendment, Senate Joint Resolution 19 – “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.”

“Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has announced the Senate Democrats are scheduling a vote on a constitutional amendment to give Congress the authority to regulate political speech, because elected officials have decided they don’t like it when the citizenry has the temerity to criticize what they’ve done,” he said.

“They don’t like it when pastors in their community stand up and speak the truth,” Cruz said to an audience of hundreds of pastors from across the country.

“And I’ll note this amendment, which has 41 Democratic senators as co-sponsors – 41 Democrats have signed on to repealing the First Amendment,” Cruz said. “It explicitly says nothing in this new amendment shall abridge the freedom of the press.

“So the New York Times is protected, but it doesn’t say the same thing about the freedom of speech,” Cruz said. “It doesn’t say the same thing about religious liberty.”

Cruz said Democrats want to limit free speech.

“What it says is that politicians in Washington have unlimited constitutional authority to muzzle each and every one of you if you’re saying things the government finds inconvenient,” Cruz said.

Cruz was not scheduled to speak at the event but showed up to introduce one of the speakers – his father, Rafael Cruz, an ordained minister.

Cruz said his father embodied the American dream, having emigrated from Cuba, landing his first job as a dishwasher and going on to be a successful businessman.

Cruz related his father’s advice on preserving liberty in America.

“When we faced oppression in Cuba, I had a place to flee to,” the senior Cruz said. “If we lose our freedom here, where do we go?”

    HERE IS THE LEGAL DECISION THAT HAS BEEN HIDDEN FROM US! THEY CANNOT ABOLISH THE 4th amendment, or any of the first 10 amendments – for any reason, at any time!

    Below you will find word for word, the exact judicial decision of Robert H Jackson, Supreme Court Justice!

    “The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One’s right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, free press, freedom of worship & assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections.” Jackson, J., West Virginia State board of Education v Barnette 1943 319 US 624,638 87L ed 1628, 1638, 63 S Ct 1178, 147 ALR 674

    The first ten amendments to the United States Constitution are called the Bill of Rights. The first ten amendments to the United States Constitution are different than the 11th to the 26th amendments. The first ten are NOT repealable. The 11th to 26th are. The Bill of Rights is not only an amendment to the United States Constitution, it is also a document of its own self. It is the American Magna Charta. (By the way, England is in the process of trying to abolish the Magna Charta!)

    The laws in the Bill of Rights are laws that are higher than the rest of the Constitution to which they are attached. The reason for this is that the Bill of Rights contains natural rights–the laws endowed to man by God. Even IF a person so desired, he/she could NOT DIVEST themselves of their natural rights! No one can deny himself of them because we can not deny posterity these rights! It is incumbent upon us to preserve and to pass these rights on to them.

    ALL PUBLIC officials and majorities are REQUIRED to abide by the position that the Bill of Rights is a special document itself, which protects the sacred rights of the people!

    The Bill of rights was drawn up to prohibit even the discussion of elimination of these rights!

    This decision rejects any recognition or acceptance of popular opinions or whims of public officials and majorities, and affirms that the rights contained in the Bill of rights are completely outside of the capricious presumptions of either group. In other words if every person in the U.S. EXCEPT YOU, votes to take away your rights–they cannot do it!

    This decision states that these rights have already been debated, and clearly established by those who drafted the document and are not subject to interpretation, and it is therefore mandatory that their Constitutional intent is to be applied by the courts.

    This decision states that the rights within the Bill of Rights are not dependent upon the outcome of any election and that they may not even be submitted for vote! This also prohibits state and federal courts and Supreme courts from even inferring that they have the right to “interpret” the meaning of any of the first 10 amendments!

    Now why hasn’t American’s arrested these traitors, are Americans so dumbed down that the only thing left for them is total enslavement

  • highpriestess

    you should get the names of all 41 of these scum buckets and ridicule them into oblivion, it’s time to get rid of all of the vermin in Washington DC, we need to clean house!!

  • Think outside the cage

    “When we faced oppression in Cuba, I had a place to flee to,” the senior Cruz

    Here’s what few Americans realize:

    The Constitution nor Anglo Saxon Common Law known as “Natural Law” that declared our God-given Rights as individuals and not that of a collective, is no longer largely recognized in the court system in America.

    What has replaced our Constitutional Law, is called:

    International Uniform Commercial Code or UCC.

    – UCC, is a privately foreign owned and controlled copyrighted, trademarked and registered corporate legal system based on English Common Law, Roman Trust Law, Admiralty Law Merchant, and the despotic and tyrannical Etruscan/Roman Caesarian banking/military Occupational tribunal form of law called: Lex Fori.

    – UCC, does not recognize the Constitution as the supreme law of the land.

    – UCC, is administered from the the middle-court of Inns, Financial District of London City, England under International BAR Incorporated, and not from America.

    – UCC, is based in international admiralty contract law, and not in natural law that protects the natural flesh and spirit of man/woman on the land.

    – UCC, does not recognize you as a living breathing natural man/woman but rather as a soulless corpse or corporatized legal fiction or dead unit of commerce.

    – under UCC, all law is now corporate policy referred to as public policy. (They dare not call it corporate policy, as people would begin to catch on.)

    – UCC, assumes you guilty.

    – UCC, assumes you to be a “federalized citizen” or commercial property of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INCORPORATED aka USA Inc., and thus a ward-of-the-state.

    THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INCORPORATED aka USA Inc., a private foreign owned off-shore corporation, copyrighted, trademarked, and registered in Puerto Rico, in 1925.

    USA Inc., is a de facto fraudulent hostile invading banking/military international criminal cartel that is masquerading as our sovereign Constitutionally lawful governing body.

    – Under UCC, all federal and state laws i.e., corporate polices, are subjugated by international treaties, as per the Geneva Convention of 1938, when the corporatization of America was finalized.

    There is no longer any form of an Anglo Saxon Constitutional Republic of 1776, and ratified in 1789, at any level since a silent and covert coup took place behind closed doors in 1933, that bankrupted our nation and placed it into the corrupt hands of the international banking cartel under receivership.

    All national, state, county, parish, township, and city governments including police and yes, even sheriff departments have been corporatized and are subjugated as franchisees to USA Inc., under international treaties since 1938.

    To fully understand how this silent coup took place, one must go back further to the treasonous Act of 1871, after the Civil War, when the international banking cartel first set the hook to steal our nation.

      The UCC is a series of common law provisions that only come up when there is a contract which involves the buying and selling of goods. Furthermore, its only applies in states that have adopted some form of the UCC.

  • Shirley Pino

    You know, it occured to me as I was reading this that the only way ANY Senator would vote for this is if he KNEW he would always be one in power. Why would they pass this if they thought the other party could be the one’s in power ?? Do they know something we don’t?? And honestly, this is all for Harry Reid to silence 1 family that he has a problem with, How did 1 Senator become so powerful. God be with us all !!!

  • thokhan

    So…. This means you have 41 criminals who should have limited freedom.
    They should spend 41 years at Quantanamo go through 41 water boardings per month.

  • lifeofliberty

    Ted Cruz is a cunt. Nothing he says can be trusted.

  • Ann Danielson

    I wouldn’t believe anything Cruz says……….lying idiot

  • T.j. Thomas

    No, they’re not trying to “repeal the First Amendment”. The resolution is to limit campaign contributions. Read the text of the resolution you linked to.

    • RDB

      This info has been presented on other reputable sites. Re-read what is said. It notes how the 1 Amendment will be circumvented and degraded. Wake up, wake up. Schumer’s name on the list should tell you something is wrong. Amazing how many are fooled these days; amazed that many will never wake up. When we lose just part of a freedom we will lose more of it and then more Constitutional rights.

    • Tids1960

      As I look over SJ 19 IS I note that most of these are already in place.

      What sticks out to me is this :
      Section 3. Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant Congress the power to abridge the freedom of the press*.

      *Freedom the “Credential Media” those who are allowed as long as they print or say what the criminals want

      Now, why would they have that in there if they didn’t have plans to restrict the speech of their constituents ?

  • abinico

    Very poorly written article, but I suspect this is nothing more than a plea by the wealthy to continue with the voice of money argument for unlimited corruption of democracy.

  • lifeofliberty

    Cruz is a ball-sucking cunt (fag). Do some research people. Don’t beleive everything you “read”, especially on websites like this.

    • Trace Smith

      Right on!!!! I just posted the real truth. Although I agree Washington is criminal to the core…Cruz is twisting facts but yet again to fit his agenda!!!! I see your about the only person here besides myself that has done due diligence and researched this horse shit.

  • RDB

    Name the 41, Every state they represent needs to know.

  • willymay

    The Bill of Rights does not grant rights. It only explains rights the people already have. Therefore, repealing the first amendment means nothing, since the first amendment and all of the amendments are just explanations of already existing rights. The rights are given by being born, by creation.

    If I typed out a page describing when a movie is going to be shown, then destroyed the page, that wouldn’t change when the movie is to be shown- the movie would still be shown. Same thing.

    Therefore, what these tyrants are saying is, “We are going to use force, illegally, to stop you from speaking against us”! Force! By deadly force, or by any means, and take your freedom to go your way by placing you in a cage for as long as we will!!!!

    If this isn’t proof they want us to start a war, I don’t know what is. They are armed to the teeth with billions of hollow points with our names on them. They have been using OUR money to prepare to dig our graves! It is coming down to- we have no choice.

    • amongoose

      I thought that it took a 2/3 of both houses to advance a constitutional amendment?
      The restrictions they want have already been struck down by the supreme court.
      What am I missing other than the progressives constant assault on freedom.
      Or does Harry Reid knows how to change those rules as well.

      • willymay

        Being the president is dictating law from a pen, we should be on guard from the congress regime as well. They love to hide bills in other bills and pass bills late when no one is watching.

  • fatwillie

    Get their names, and when they leave washington and return home the people of their state should go to their office or home, drag them out by their ears give them a 10 minute trial for treason, convict them, and immediately line them up on a wall and shoot them. Send their bodies back to washington put them on display and say anyone else want to be a traitor?

  • D. Koss Uber

    My Opinion: Anyone who thinks money is free speech knows NOTHING about democracy or a government By and For The People. Please die Mr. Cruz.

  • Trace Smith

    Cruz- being a little less honest….again (?) I am not a Repub or Dem…I’m an American!

    Cruz: Dems want to repeal the 1st Amendment…Free Speech


    *The real Story*

    *”Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens argued Wednesday that a constitutional amendment is needed to slow the flow of money into politics.*

    *“While money is used to finance speech, money is not speech,” Stevens said in testimony before the Senate Rules Committee.*

    *Stevens, who left the bench in 2010, admonished the high court’s prevailing stance on campaign finance regulations but stopped short of criticizing his former colleagues over a pair of major rulings that critics decry as allowing virtually unbridled spending on federal elections.*

      Cruz is an asshole and a liar…and although I agree Washington is working hard to take our Constitution…this idiot is twisting facts as usual!!!!!

      • willymay

        How is it twisted? Or do we take your word for it?
        Back it up with data and sources or don’t bother.

  • farang

    Ed Markey, shithe@d senator from Mass., is the one that introduced “internet censorship of hate speech” with shithe*d senator Schumer sitting next to him looking smug and content, while shithe@d senator Fienstein is screaming “disarm disarm disarm” while “offering” a “list” of ” journalists not be be censored” in her CENSORSHIP OF THE MEDIA BILL. With shithe@d Schumer sitting next to her, looking smug and content.

    Sad fact is: Cruz is a Zionist too. So is Rand “little curly little joe” Paul.


    Then they will move on to NEW HOST TO SUCK DRY.

    how can we: 1) get the name of the bill that’s trying to do away with our first amendment? 2) How do we get the names of the sponsor and co-sponsors of this bill?
