senator Ted Cruz how are you sir I’m done terrific mark are you doing and
0:05
doing very well
0:06
but you know have my audience for the most part hi
0:10
we don’t quite understand what the Senate is up to today particularly the
0:14
republican majority in the Senate
0:16
given all the wheeling and dealing and now it’s quite obvious that this
0:21
in the end so-called trade bill will include all kinds have left wing Obama
0:26
agenda items what white
0:28
you tell us how you wound up voting against it
0:32
and if you can tell us why most to the republicans voted Fort
0:36
sure I so I voted against EPA today
0:40
and and I wrote a lot of bed and bright part this morning explaining why
0:44
and as you know I support free trade
0:47
long-time supporter free trade i campaigned on free trade
0:51
in the state of Texas I however they were really
0:55
two things that drove me to oppose TPA today the first
1:00
I was something that came out after the first about
1:03
on TPA which is WikiLeaks really released I
1:07
the text a portion of the train services agreement I
1:11
which explicitly purports to change immigration laws at the signatory
1:15
countries
1:16
now at the time TBA came up for a vote initially
1:20
jeff Sessions that it is an amendment I introduced an amendment
1:23
add GPA to make explicit the
1:27
no immigration no trade deal can impact immigration law
1:31
and anyone that attempted impact immigration law wouldn’t be subject ship
1:35
to fast-track
1:36
I we didn’t get a those amendments and
1:40
based on this subsequently get the text to that of other trade agreement
1:45
attempting to do just that
1:46
II informed leadership that that
1:50
if they wanted my vote on TPA they needed to pass the cruise sessions
1:54
amendments
1:55
to take immigration of the table forever on trade agreements
1:59
that the second aspect that led me to vote
2:02
now I was the corrupt deals that we’ve seen
2:05
that that leadership pursued in order to
2:09
to get TPA past and in particular is a deal that that by all appearances
2:13
that they cut to reauthorize the export-import Bank
2:17
now as you know mark the export-import Bank is a classic example above
2:22
corporate welfare is 100
2:23
a billions of dollars on the loan guarantees the taxpayers give that
2:28
benefit primarily a handful a giant corporations
2:31
now it’s scheduled to expire on June 30
2:35
fan and would be a tremendous victory should be a tremendous victory for
2:39
Republicans to show
2:41
were not about cronyism or not about picking winners and losers
2:44
to defend the free market unfortunately it now appears the republican leadership
2:50
cut a deal in order to get EPA through where they agreed
2:54
to tee up a vote and allow the export import bank that corporate welfare
2:59
to be reauthorized as well as at the end of the day it was simply too much
3:03
too much so I announced I would vote now and I did both other day
3:06
and that’s why you at you voted for it
3:11
in the first place I’ll because you believe that this was more of a vehicle
3:15
for free trade
3:16
for free or trade and then use all these deals that were being cut
3:21
and you said alright that’s enough and I’m not gonna vote for this sec correct
3:24
well
3:25
that’s exactly right when when the Senate initially took it up I voted in
3:30
favor of TPA am NOT
3:32
PPP which is the trans-pacific partnership that hasn’t been voted on I
3:36
haven’t
3:36
haven’t taken a position on it is still being negotiated but EPA as you know
3:41
it’s fast track
3:42
is the process for negotiating free trade agreements
3:46
and I initially voted in favor of that and then publicly spoke out in favor of
3:50
it
3:50
because over the last 80 years we’ve saying
3:54
the only way that a president has been able to get free trade agreements
3:58
negotiated
3:59
is with fast track and and and virtually every press president
4:03
since FDR’s had fast-track and in-form leadership that if they publicly number
4:10
one
4:11
committed to allowing the export import bank
4:14
to expire and stay expired and that corrupt Washington cronyism and
4:19
deal-making
4:20
and number two if Congress would pass
4:24
the cruise in sessions amendment
4:26
taking immigration of the table forever in trade agreements that I would support
4:30
it but but leadership
4:31
did not accept my offer well this this is really troubling
4:35
to me and frustrating to me and I think a lot of people in the audience that
4:39
leadership
4:40
which we don’t use leadership I know you have to call and I don’t
4:43
that the republican leadership would be plotting with Barack Obama to get this
4:49
through
4:49
and obviously the question is what’s in it for Obama while Obama’s not a free
4:54
market guy Obama’s not even approach capitalist guy
4:57
so why do we have these people I’ll tell you why I think Ted Cruz
5:01
what we have here is crony capitalism and corporatism
5:06
thaddeus I think republican leaders believe that they can get
5:09
12 percent of the pie just 12 percent
5:12
I’ll take it whatever Obama does am I missing something
5:16
yeah he here not much market unfortunately what we see
5:21
today is another manifestation of what I call the Washington cartel
5:26
it is a corruption it is a cartel
5:30
of career politicians in both parties
5:33
in union with the lobbyists on K Street
5:37
and it’s the reason why sector the ten wealthiest counties in america
5:41
surround Washington DC because this town is all about
5:46
more and more power and money in washington and the working men and women
5:49
their lives being made harder and harder and what we saw today is another example
5:54
of government
5:55
of the lobbyists by the lobbyists and for the lobbyist
5:58
and that’s not what republicans were elected to Congress to do
6:01
not a cruiser I want to ask you about this Associated Press in these
6:08
these photographs that were so appalling
6:11
other AP his stall aimed
6:14
at your forehead I mean I know
6:17
that you gonna probably make a lighter that but that you know that is so
6:20
outrageous you and I know full well
6:23
if it where a liberal politician or god forbid the present or something like
6:27
that
6:27
the sky would fall and yet here you are Ted Cruz
6:31
and The Associated Press and their editors and they put it out on the wire
6:36
it’s such a disgrace I haven’t heard you comment on
6:39
this well %uh there’s no doubt that if they had run the same photo and it had
6:44
been hillary Clinton Arbor %ah
6:46
Obama that that that the entire world would have
6:49
worry quayle in horror and the editor who made the decision to
6:54
to run it with would very likely have been fire
6:57
and there would have been a public apology I instead
7:00
this is business as usual as you know the mainstream media
7:04
they are not objective reporters
7:07
they are hard-core leftist and partisans they are Barack Obama’s
7:12
most important Praetorian Guard and no one is more ready for Hillary than the
7:17
mainstream media so it is not surprising
7:20
Celi I’ve kinda been enjoyed some other contrast
7:24
a faulty AP photo/the Barack Obama with a halo of light
7:28
behind it head verses May with the giant gunpoint in between my eyes because that
7:32
sums up there he is up to you and me and conservatives and frankly Americans
7:38
debut
7:39
hard working men and women all across this country people who believe in the
7:43
in the
7:44
values the judeo-christian values the free market
7:47
people to believe in the Constitution they’ve US’s ignorant rooms
7:52
and that’s their hostility coming out and and it is the nature of who they are
7:56
they are
7:57
artist spy what do you make up all these things going on in the world in going on
8:02
in this country that are
8:04
extremely troubling their problematic for average Americans
8:08
you know whether it’s jobs whether to immigration but we have this horrendous
8:12
event
8:13
the this slaughter at nine wonderful human beings in a black church or target
8:18
because they’re black and here we are
8:20
within seconds were forced to debate
8:23
gun control and the confederate flag
8:27
its I mean isn’t it time we had a president who is a real statesman who
8:31
would bring the country together
8:33
and move us toward a united gall marchio you’re exactly right every one of us was
8:39
horrified
8:40
I sickening shootings in the end in charleston and
8:44
it was on active up grotesque people when this deranged fan
8:50
walked into the manual and
8:52
nature chin and and you and I are both people if a not to
8:56
to imagine that he sat down and prayed with these men and women
9:01
trade right now church and then
9:05
promptly pulled out a a gun and shot them that is that that is a
9:09
manifestation of the book
9:11
that is difficult to comprehend and
9:15
I we both wish the president had used this opportunity
9:19
to try to bring us together to do what I’d call
9:22
for what so many of us a call for say let’s pray for the families let’s pray
9:26
that we can come together let’s pray that we can
9:28
he’ll I the racial divisions and wounding hatred and bigotry the
9:33
but still remain with stop you know it was incredibly it was
9:37
breathtaking to watch the family’s
9:40
a summer those murdered in the Emmanuel am a church
9:45
stand up and publicly call for forgiveness up this depraved
9:49
killer I mean what an incredible manifestation of Christian forgiveness
9:54
I you know I I have to say I i eat
9:57
took your breath away and it was powerful and that’s what we should be
10:01
focusing on
10:02
I is coming together and bring us together rather than having the
10:06
president
10:07
constantly seeking to make everything political
10:10
everything about dividing us along racial lines and class lines and gender
10:14
lines at any line he can
10:16
we should have a president who unites us instead
10:20
I just feel that the nation did in fact come together over this
10:24
as it has over other things and we’re way ahead
10:27
at the washington politicians in this president and they hate it
10:31
when we speak with one voice they hate it when we stand shoulder to shoulder
10:35
because it doesn’t serve their purpose is on the left it
10:38
everything is political from the last so when you see a tragedy
10:42
from their perspective it’s an opportunity to push the same policy
10:46
agenda they were pushing yesterday doesn’t change what they’re pushing
10:50
you know as Rama Rama manual famously said you never want to waste it will
10:53
waste a good crisis
10:55
that is a very cynical approach to politics and the life span and
11:01
yes you know its worst folks asking
11:05
ourselves are we
11:06
need more united today after six and a half years at this presidency are we
11:10
more divided in sadly when you have a president
11:13
who constantly tears us apart you know just just the just this weekend
11:18
II was in in iowa and I was as traveling in california I met one law enforcement
11:24
officer police officer
11:26
who’d served over two decades as a police officer ni said
11:29
told me said I’m retiring because I cannot stand
11:33
the animosity that is directed
11:36
at law enforcement a police officer’s arrest their lives so I’m retiring on
11:40
getting out because I i cant take it more
11:43
that is not the job for the president to try to turn american citizens against
11:47
each other
11:48
it’s the job of the president to defend our common values
11:52
and that should start with the Constitution
11:55
which sadly this president disregards on a daily basis we don’t get a lot of time
12:01
left but
12:01
I just wanted to say this to the next president assuming it’s a conservative
12:07
and Republican
12:08
is kinda have the enormous task undoing the damage this president has done
12:14
and advancing his or her agenda am i right
12:17
mark you are exactly right but it but it also
12:20
we’re poised for real change I
12:24
just like jimmy carter in the nineteen seventies we saw the same
12:27
misery in stagnation and Malays the same back with a night
12:31
foreign policy and that set the stage for the reagan revolution
12:35
where CNN again mark you know in the last couple months
12:39
we’ve had over a hundred thousand people come to Ted Cruz dot or
12:43
contribute to support our campaign we’re saying
12:46
town halls we did a town hall a few weeks ago in new hampshire
12:49
with 600 people come out in the state of New Hampshire New Hampshire is not a big
12:53
state you don’t get 600 people
12:55
for just about anything the next day you’ll love this mark
12:59
we did have an Andover Massachusetts bright blue Massachusetts
13:04
had 650 people slide in the People’s Republic a Massachusetts
13:09
and the great thing about mark just about every one of them
13:12
they were reagan democrats they were irish-catholic they were working class
13:16
in the truck drivers
13:17
and climbers in school teachers
13:19
they were the people getting hammered Scout tell you your listeners and men
13:24
and women across America are waking up
13:26
and they’re ready to change in just like we saw our morning in America common
13:31
1980 2016 is going to be an election like nineteen eighty
13:35
we’re gonna win by painting and bold colors not pale pastels
13:39
