Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) threw President Donald Trump under the bus during an appearance with fake news reader Margaret Brennan on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday morning.
During his appearance, Brennan asked Cruz if it was appropriate for President Donald Trump to suggest that former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter should be investigated for his shady deals with the Chinese government. Instead of standing firmly with the President, Cruz echoed the narrative pushed by the Democratic Party and deep state officials working to impeach him.
“Of course not,” Cruz responded, adding that “elections in the United States should be decided by Americans and it’s not the business of foreign countries to be interfering in our elections.”
Cruz is also calling for hearings where President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani can be grilled by the Senate Judiciary Committee, indicating that he might be willing to cooperate with the witch hunt against the President.
“I don’t know what Rudy’s been saying, I do know that we should decide our elections,” Cruz said. “I think it’d make a lot of sense for Rudy to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.”
Cruz also refused to endorse the Justice Department looking into Biden and his son’s crony dealings in Ukraine, China, and other foreign nations during his appearance on the program:

This is not the only time that Cruz has shown his true colors and denigrated the President to the fake news media recently.
Cruz appeared on stage next to MSNBC host Chris Hayes at the Texas Tribune Festival last month where he nodded along as Hayes blasted the President and his “America First” foreign policy:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has talked a good game since he was destroyed in the Republican presidential primary in 2016 by then-candidate Donald Trump, but he will sometimes show his true colors to remind Republicans why he grew to be so reviled during that election cycle.
His appearance at the third annual Texas Tribune Festival is a great example of that, as Cruz had a conversation with pencil-necked MSNBC fake news reporter Chris Hayes about why he thinks President Trump is making big foreign policy mistakes.
“I have real concerns about our policy in North Korea,” Cruz told Hayes.
“The President isn’t just saying, ‘I want to do a deal with them,’ which, again, I would favor,” Hayes responded.
“He’s actually saying, ‘He’s a great leader. I literally love him. He writes these beautiful notes, and I think he is a great, great leader for his country.’ It is a gulag state that every part of the American spectrum of political ideology agrees is one of the most ghastly, uh, mad scientist experiments of human subjugation on the globe,” Hayes said while Cruz sat there and nodded along.
While Cruz has often acted like as if is a supporter of Trump since getting crushed by him in the 2016 presidential primary, Cruz will show his true globalist colors while making appearances with the fake news media. He is reminding Trump supporters why they once called him “Lyin’ Ted.”
Ilhan Omar’s Grandfather Was a Government Official in One of Africa’s Worst Dictatorships
Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’
As Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar accuses American civilization of being a “system of oppression,” it appears that the progressive Democrat has provided little to no public information on her own grandfather’s activities and public duties as a government official in one of Africa’s worst dictatorships.
Omar has described her grandfather, Abukar Omar, as the Director of the National Marine Transport in Somalia in the 1980’s and possibly earlier, serving in the government of then-President Siad Barre. Barre, who took power in 1969, originally governed the country as a Marxist-Leninist before switching his Cold War allegiances to the United States in the late 70’s.
Barre’s government is known as a prolific human rights abuser, persecuting the nation’s Isaaq tribe in a series of government sponsored killings that scholars have referred to as a “forgotten genocide.” Estimates of the civilian casualties of the Isaaq genocide range from 50,000 to 200,000 people.
Omar, who was a child at the time, has also described her family leaving Somalia in 1991, the very year that President Barre was overthrown from power in a revolution that continues to have a destabilizing effect on the East African nation to this day.
It’s of some public interest that a more thorough explanation of Akubar Omar’s duties as an official serving under Siad Barre be provided, especially considering the former Barre official was granted refugee status in the United States sometime after Barre was overthrown in Somalia’s 1991 Civil War.
Omar has described her family as understanding that they were “no longer welcome” in the country as a result of the civil war, a development that may very well have come as a result of her grandfather’s work as a nominally high-ranking government official under the Barre regime. Rep. Omar recounted an incident in which what seems to have been a family compound was placed under siege by rebels who vandalized the property in a 2016 profile with the Minneapolis City Pages.
Omar biographies also suggest that some of her aunts and uncles also worked as civil servants under Barre’s government.
An inquiry into Abukar Omar’s official duties as the Director of the National Marine Transport under Barre’s regime was sent to Omar’s press office, and the Congresswoman has yet to respond as of Wednesday night.
Ilhan Omar was also one of the few Democratic members of Congress to decline to formally vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire after World War I, claiming the United States should be focusing on the legacy of slavery and persecution of Native Americans instead.
Certainly, one cannot be held to account for actions that their extended relatives engage in when they’re a child; but it’s quite rich that Omar has declined to account for her own grandfather’s seeming participation in a very real and historically documented “system of oppression” in any publicly known remarks on the family connection, while castigating American civilization for its supposed injustices.
