Republican MELTDOWN After Ted Cruz Refuses To Endorse Trump

Republican MELTDOWN After Ted Cruz Refuses To Endorse Trump

Ted Cruz didn’t endorse the Republican nominee Donald Trump during his recent RNC speech. The reaction of the party has been furious. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), and John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Michael Shure, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Ted Cruz did not endorse Donald Trump in his much-anticipated speech to the Republican National Convention on Wednesday, instead urging Republicans to vote their conscience — to anguished reactions from Trump supporters in the room.

Cruz’s speech stole the show on what was intended to be a big night for the vice presidential nominee, Mike Pence — and it led to waves of fallout as the night went on, with Cruz being accosted by a state party chair and turned away from a powerful donor’s box in the arena.

“And to those listening, please, don’t stay home in November,” the prepared text of Cruz’s speech read. “Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”
Cruz only mentioned Trump by name once in his speech, saying at the beginning, “I congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination last night.””*

Sheriff Refuses to Enforce Unconstitutional Executive Orders in Arizona County

Babeu criticizes Obama and the political class in Washington for exploiting the Sandy Hook massacre and other tragic events to push an unprecedented gun control agenda. “Do you honestly feel that any criminal or someone who is mentally ill will obey an executive order made by you related to ‘gun control?'” he writes in the letter dated January 16. “I have sworn a solemn oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America when I was first sworn in as an Army Private, later as an Army Officer, then as a Police Officer and now twice as the constitutionally elected Sheriff,” he writes. “You too Mr. President have taken the same oath, therefore I am gravelly alarmed — just as most Americans are that you would attempt to circumvent the Constitution of the United States.” He then informs Obama that he will not obey “any ‘law’ or regulation created by an executive order of your office which is contrary to what the Constitution of the United States of America says” and pledges that he will not infringe on the Second Amendment rights of American citizens in Pinal County, Arizona. Obama and the White House have not responded to Babeu’s letter. You Tube: www.youtube.com News Blog: nworeport.wordpress.com
