General rule if you don’t want to be at embarrassed or murdered on television: do not be a liberal and do not debate Ted Cruz. You’d think the leftists would’ve learned by now that debating Ted Cruz in the Senate is akin to a gnat trying to outfight an 18-wheeler.
Here’s a brief background before we get to the massacre. Ted Cruz questioned a Justice Department official, Stuart Delery, during a confirmation hearing (Delery aspires to be the Associate Attorney General) for the Justice Department’s role in Operation Choke Point, an operation set up in 2013 to investigate businesses which were, according to the Obama Administration, more susceptible to fraud and money laundering. But Ted Cruz noticed the operation’s involvement in targeting gun and ammunition providers.
Like I said: gnat vs. 18-wheeler. It’s almost not fair, but I’m over fairness. It’s great to see Cruz nailing this political hack who refuses to answer simple yes or no questions and instead tries to dance around the issue.
Operation Choke Point, as Cruz illuminates here, is yet another example of the Obama administration using its political power to target people and businesses it doesn’t like, in this case big, evil gun owners. Which, by the way, we’re still giving away a scary black rifle, but time is running out. Jump in the AR15 giveaway here. Selectively choosing who gets the full force of the law (and it looks like in this case, no targeted gun owner was in the wrong) while letting other criminals walk free (here’s looking at you, Lois Lerner and Hillary Clinton) is tyranny.
Government tyranny, both the threat and real incidences in history of it (See Ben Carson School Wolf Blizter on Gun Control and in Nazi Germany), is one reason we have the right to keep and bear arms. Maybe, just maybe, that’s one reason Obama hates the Second Amendment so much, what with him kissing a poster of Lenin before bedtime. We all have our man crush Mondays.
Reminder, the Second Amendment was written as a timeless amendment. The founding fathers weren’t stupid old white men. They knew weapons would evolve. So if you’re going to do the “for muskets only” dance number, just stop, sit down and educate yourself.
