Texas senator Ted Cruz, recently spotted rocking a cool beard, has introduced a constitutional amendment establishing term limits on the senators and congressmen who make decisions in our country.
The constitutional amendment has clear rules: Senators only get two six-year terms, and House members get three two-year terms, for a total of six years.
And guess what? Cruz got Marco Rubio, David Purdue, and Mike Lee to co-sponsor it.
Term limits are a great idea because many of our lawmakers grow complacent in perpetual incumbency, so satisfied that nobody can beat their home-town machine that they don’t actually have to try. Term limits incentivize lawmakers to actually get things done. Also, term limits would make some progress in preventing special interests from owning certain House or Senate seats forever, opening up competition from fresh-faced challengers on a more regular basis.
This is a major step forward for the American people, even if it is very difficult to pass a constitutional amendment and of course most of the corrupt political machine and special interests will be marshaled against it.
But good for Ted. As fun as it was to watch President Trump fly his private jet over Cruz’s rallies in the primaries, most of Trump’s supporters have re-embraced the tea party senator whose epic fights — including his Obamacare-themed government shutdown — helped get the populist right-wing insurgency to a point where it can now govern.
As Trump said about Cruz: “Like, Dislike, Like.”
Meaning, the opinion is back to “Like” now.
No hard feelings!
WINNING: White House Preparing Executive Order to Ban Left-Wing Critical Race Theory Trainings at Government Agencies
The trainings are used to demonize white federal employees.
The Trump administration’s Director of the Office of Management and Budget confirmed on Friday that the President is ordering federal agencies to cease any and all planned “trainings” on critical race theory, putting an end to practices of racial discrimination at the highest levels of the federal government.
The days of taxpayer funded indoctrination trainings that sow division and racism are over. Under the direction of @POTUS we are directing agencies to halt critical race theory trainings immediately.https://t.co/dyMeJka9rt

“We cannot accept our employees receiving training that seeks to undercut our core values as Americans and drive division within our workforce,” states Vought within the memorandum directed to the heads of executive departments and agencies.
Federal departments and agencies such as the U.S Treasury and Sandia National Laboratories have been previously busted for implementing mandatory anti-white training programs in which any and all white employees of the organizations was compelled to admit their own supposed racism, and write letters of “apology” to women and individuals who identify their race as anything other than White.
The memorandum on the critical race theory training ban explains that the widespread practices run against the American tradition of treating others on merit and anti-discrimination.
Discovery Institute Research Fellow Chris Rufo had argued that such an exact ban was necessary when speaking on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday, an argument that may have spurred the Trump administration into action in implementing a ban on the discriminatory practices.
This is a strong move by the Trump administration, and comes at a moment where racist and discriminatory racist “trainings” begin to pervade within a wide array of American workplaces, especially within Fortune 500 corporations. Such trainings should be made illegal under existing federal laws banning racial discrimination in both public and private workplaces.
It’s probably pretty likely that left-wing cultural fanatics will attempt to continue anti-white race theory trainings under an altered guise to avoid breaching this order. Enforcing it will take some effort and commitment on the part of the federal government.
