    Ted Cruz Slams Racist MSNBC Host, Poses the 1 Question People Have Been Asking

    Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas responded to MSNBC host Joy Reid’s racist remarks against him by questioning why the network permitted her to get away with it and saying that comments of the like were leading Hispanics to turn their back on the Democratic Party.
    On Tuesday, Reid discussed the Texas senator with guests Democratic Sen. Alex Padilla of California and NAACP legal counsel Janai Nelson, and made a reference to the movie “Django Unchained” — comparing Cruz to a traitorous house slave in the film for not supporting the For the People Act, which aims at altering voting processes across the country.
    Cruz’s rebuttal was swift, calling out the host of the MSNBC segment “The ReidOut” for “using overt racial slurs” to make assumptions concerning how Hispanic-Americans should vote.

    “I appreciate MSNBC lecturing me on how people of ‘my race’ are supposed to vote,” Cruz tweeted on Wednesday. “This arrogant condescension is a big reason Hispanic voters are moving right in large numbers.
    “Also, why is MSNBC ok with their hosts using overt racial slurs (‘Stephen from Django’)?”

    Cruz called the For the People Act, officially known as House Resolution 1, “Jim Crow 2.0” — a reference to President Joe Biden’s remarks about Georgia’s new voting law, which the president called “Jim Crow in the 21st Century.”
    “Jim Crow laws were bigoted, racist, and disenfranchised millions of people,” Cruz said in a Tuesday tweet. “Those laws were drafted by Democrats and implemented by Democrats to keep Democrats in power. Today, Democrats are doing it again. The Corrupt Politicians Act is Jim Crow 2.0.”

    Reid was highly critical of Cruz and the GOP after his comment, alleging that the Republican Party was attempting voter suppression in his state of Texas.
    “Ted Cruz says a lot of stupid things,” Reid said Tuesday. “He does a lot of stupid things. But I personally — as a person of color, as a black person — am beyond offended that he would dare use the word ‘Jim Crow’ when his party is literally a ‘Jim Crow’ party at this point, trying to suppress the votes of people, including in his home state.”
    She later called Cruz “Stephen from Django Unchained.”
    Reid continued with attacks on the Texas senator, saying that he “could give a d**n about Jim Crow,” and that he has “never raised once concern ever in his entire life … about Jim Crow or racism or discrimination.”

    Maybe Joy because Ted knows the only ones that push racism and Jim Crow is the dimwit party.

    Reid suggested Cruz was a traitor to Hispanics and defended HR 1, saying that if it fails to pass, America may never see free and fair elections again.
    Republicans, however, have said that the act threatens election integrity and the rights of states.

    “The legislation would strip states of their constitutional authority to run elections and allow the federal government to decree what’s best,” Republican Sen. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia said in a Fox News Op-Ed.
    “It would ban voter ID laws, which maintain the integrity of elections in my state and a majority of others … To put it simply: states don’t need Washington, D.C., to strip them of their authority and impose burdensome requirements to fix problems that do not exist,” Moore said.
    Reid has made racist comments about Republicans in the past. She has made an “Uncle Tom” reference, alluding to the Harriet Beecher Stowe novel, about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, whom she called “Uncle Clarence.” She has also called Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina the token black person in the Republican Party.

    This post is the exact definition of double standard. You are okay with cruz going on vacation, but not so much with whitmer.

    Hell she should be removed from all assignments! Just let her sell he stupid kiddie books. FROM HOME!

    Arizona AG Doesn't Hold Back as He Urges Biden to Remove Harris as 'Border Czar'


    Arizona’s attorney general urged President Joe Biden to remove Vice President Kamala Harris as his administration’s “border czar” in a Wednesday letter.
    Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a Republican, requested in his letter that Harris be replaced as the overseer of the illegal migration crisis.
    Brnovich criticized Harris for failing to visit the border and called her response to the crisis a “slap in the face” to Arizona residents.

    “Vice President Harris has shown little interest in observing what is happening along the border and has failed to articulate any plan to deal with the devastating effects of this crisis. … Mr. President, this is a slap in the face to Arizonans who helped elect you both to the highest offices in the land,” Brnovich wrote.
    “What is occurring now at the border and in our communities is reckless and dangerous — to Arizonans, to migrants, and to the security of our great nation.”

    Brnovich pointed to the increase in apprehensions at the border in April to argue that the situation is getting steadily worse.
    Border Patrol agents apprehended over 178,600 illegal migrants in April, a 3 percent increase from March, according to Customs and Border Protection.

    “The truth is that our border officials are overwhelmed, law enforcement is understaffed, and local ranchers live in daily fears of threats from Cartel operatives. It is shameful that they are not receiving more federal support,” Brnovich wrote.
    “The latest apprehension numbers from April show that things are getting worse, and we do not yet know the full extent of dangerous people and drugs crossing into our communities.”
    The attorney general said he invited Harris to visit the southern border in early April and never received a response.

    “I sent Vice President Harris a letter on April 2nd, personally inviting her to tour the border with me and to hear from the brave citizens on the ground,” he said.
    “To date, I am very disappointed that I have not received a response from Vice President Harris or anyone in your administration.”

    Brnovich asked that Harris be replaced by “a federal official who is willing to see the crisis firsthand and to work with state partners to address it.”
    He also urged the Biden administration to adopt new policies at the border and increase “transparency with members of Congress, the media, and the American people throughout this crisis.”

    Yup she's failing at all tasks assigned to her.

    Republicans Draw 'Red Line' Over Major Issue in $2 Trillion Biden Bill

    President Joe Biden’s trillion-dollar dreams won’t come true if there is a tax increase attached, Republican leaders vowed Wednesday after a White House meeting with Biden and top congressional Democrats.
    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy each said after the meeting that they will not back the tax hike Biden wants to cover his $2.3 million package of infrastructure spending and other projects.
    Biden wants a hike in corporate income taxes to be the main revenue source to offset the spending. A separate $1.8 trillion package of child care and education spending would be offset by an increase on personal income taxes for the richest Americans.

    “We’re not interested in re-opening the 2017 tax bill. We both made that clear with the president. That’s our red line,” McConnell said, according to Politico. “This discussion … will not include revisiting the 2017 tax bill.”
    The 2017 tax bill, passed during the administration of former President Donald Trump, reduced taxes.

    “You won’t find any Republican that wants to go out and raise taxes,” McCarthy said. “Raising taxes is the biggest mistake you can make.”
    McCarthy said he also raised with Biden his concern that inflation must be brought under control.
    McConnell said Senate Republicans will not simply march to Biden’s drum, saying he did not favor “top-down dictation as to what this package looks like, but rather a consultative process in which everybody in my conference is involved,” according to Axios.
    Republicans have noted that, although labeled as an infrastructure package, there is a lot in the $2.3 trillion proposal that has nothing to do with areas traditionally defined as infrastructure.

    “We first have to start with a definition of what is infrastructure,” McCarthy said, according to The New York Times. “That’s not home health. That’s roads, bridges, highways, airports, broadband.”
    McCarthy reportedly sent a campaign text to supporters after the meeting that said, “I just met with Corrupt Joe Biden and he’s STILL planning to push his radical Socialist agenda onto the American people.”

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the goal of the meeting was to “convey that the world is not waiting for us to work together” and to negotiate in a “good faith effort,” Politico reported.
    Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was “more optimistic” after the meeting, which she said “took us a few steps forward.”
    As for McConnell’s anti-tax-hike stance, she said, “He considers it sacrosanct. We have a different set of values.”
