I endorse Cruz for 2016. The media is going to try to use this against him. But they have been thoroughly discredited in the past week. They are aligned with our enemies.
Get behind Cruz. I know its early — but the truth is, it’s late in the fight. I have been considering this for some time and will write a more comprehensive post when time permits, but Cruz is the best candidate in the field. Bar none.
The conquered media is viciously enforcing the sharia in their attacks on me. But I believe it does more to expose them than damage our fight for freedom. My email box is crashing with emails of support — tens of thousands of letters.
The media has been outed. If we had a responsible media, they would report more of the positive developments in light of the terror attack. The jihadists were the end of the line. By drawing them out, we exposed their network. We were able to expose the network without getting anyone killed. The FBI are now going after the sources. They are gleaning intel from their computers as we speak. We smoked out a terror structure.
The FBI has put more American terror suspects under constant surveillance following the deadly attack. Every city across US had “subjects of concern.” The military is taking the threat seriously enough to raise the threat level to one of the highest levels it has reached since 911.
Get behind Cruz.
Texas shooting showed radical Islam’s ‘ugly face,’ Ted Cruz says
By Mark Hensch , The Hill, May 10, 2015
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Saturday said last weekend’s terrorist attack in his home state had made Americans more aware of the danger posed by extremist Muslims.
“We saw the ugly face of radical Islam in Garland, Texas, recently,” Cruz said of last Sunday’s shooting at a “Draw Muhammad” event there.
“Thankfully, one police officer helped those terrorists meet their virgins,” he quipped.
Phoenix residents and roommates Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi were the two gunmen shot during the attempted massacre.
Cruz, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, argued Saturday that the pair and others like them were emboldened by President Obama’s softness on Islamic fanaticism.
“We can’t win a war against radical Islamic terrorism with a president who won’t utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism,’ ” he said.
“This nation is in crisis,” Cruz said. “If we don’t pull our country back from the brink, we risk losing the greatest country in the history of the world.”
Cruz vowed that if he were elected, he would unabashedly protect freedom of speech and other liberties.
“We must defend our constitutional rights – all of them,” he said.
New Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Friday said “all efforts were made” to warn the Texas police department over a likely attack at Garland’s “Draw Muhammad” event.
Simpson and Soofi were reportedly offended by the event’s content. Depicting Muhammad, Islam’s holiest prophet, is forbidden to Muslims.
The Obama administration on Tuesday ruled that the shooting was an “attempted terrorist attack.”
“There is no expression, however offensive, that justifies an act of terrorism even an act of violence,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said.
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has since claimed it inspired the Garland shooters.
White House officials have rejected that claim as a propaganda maneuver by the foreign terrorist organization.
Simpson and Soofi were more likely “lone wolf” extremists, they argued, rather than actual ISIS agents.
Conservative critics have argued the incident shows ISIS has finally infiltrated American shores because of the Obama’s administration’s poor counterterrorism strategies.
