Ted Cruz Flip-Flops On Birthright Citizenship


REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL
CANDIDATE TED CRUZ HAS JOINED NOTED SLAVERY ENTHUSIAST,
JAN MICKELSON TO TALK ABOUT BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP, WHICH
WE’LL GET TO IN JUST A MINUTE. BUT THEY FIRST GOT DOWN ON THEIR
KNEES TO PRAISE DONALD TRUMP FOR BRINGING UP THIS ISSUE
OF IMMIGRATION NOBODY HAD EVER HEARD ABOUT PREVIOUSLY. LET’S LISTEN. ONE OF THE REAL BENEFITS OF
DONALD TRUMP BEING IN THIS RACE IS THAT IT HAS FORCED THE
MAINSTREAM MEDIA TO TALK ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. THEY DIDN’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT
IT, AND THAT IS VERY BENEFICIAL AND I THINK WHAT IS HAPPENING IS
WHEN VOTERS START LOOKING AT THIS ISSUE THEY THEN START
ASKING WHO HAS A RECORD, WHO HAS ACTUALLY BEEN
FIGHTING FOR THIS? FOR YEARS I HAVE BEEN LEADING
THE FIGHT AND STANDING SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH STEVE
KING, PEOPLE ARE FED UP WITH POLITICIANS SAYING ONE
THING AND DOING ANOTHER. THEY DON’T WANT A CAMPAIGN
CONSERVATIVE WHO OPPOSES AMNESTY WHEN YOU’RE RUNNING FOR
PRESIDENT, BUT WHEN THEY ARE NOT, GOES OUT AND
ADVOCATES AMNESTY. THEY WANT A CONSISTENT
CONSERVATIVE WHO IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY,
AND TOMORROW. CONSISTENCY. BEAR IN MIND, WE
WILL CIRCLE BACK TO THAT. I WANT SOMEBODY THAT’S THE SAME. MOSTLY, EVEN BEFORE YESTERDAY. MOSTLY 50 YEARS AGO, 100 YEARS
AGO. THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT. HE SAID THAT PEOPLE ARE FED
UP WITH POLITICIANS SAYING ONE THING AND DOING ANOTHER. I LOOKED UP HIS POLITICIZED
RECORD, AND IT TURNS OUT 69 PERCENT OF HIS STATEMENTS THEY
HAVE COVERED TURNED OUT TO BE PANTS ON FIRE LYING,
MOSTLY UNTRUE, OR UNTRUE. 69 PERCENT OF THE STUFF ñ AND I DON’T INCLUDE THE STUFF
THEY SAY IT’S HALF TO. SO I AM GIVING HIM THE
BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. EVERYTHING UNDER HALF TO EQUAL
69 PERCENT. NEXT TIME HE WILL SAY, I THINK
AMERICANS WHEN THEY GO TO THE POLLS, THEY ARE LOOKING FOR
A POLITICIAN WHO 30 TO 31 PERCENT OF THE TIME
TELLS IT STRAIGHT. A LITTLE BIT OF HALF-TRUTHS
THROWN IN THERE. THE BIRTH RATE ISSUE IS
UNBELIEVABLE. AS USUAL, TED CRUZ IS LYING, HE
DID NOT HOLD THIS POSITION. JOHN WILL TELL YOU
ABOUT THAT IN A SECOND. WHAT IS AMAZING IS AFTER
LISTENING TO THIS, I CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT TED
CRUZ NOW STANDS A VERY GOOD CHANCE OF WINNING THE REPUBLICAN
NOMINATION. I WILL TELL YOU WHY. BECAUSE VOTERS ARE FOAMING AT
THE MOUTH, THEY ARE CRAZED. TRUMP- I ULTIMATELY IN THE END
AGREE WITH BEN, TRUMP WILL BLOW HIMSELF UP. HE WILL SAY MY JEW
BANKER OR WHATEVER. IT’S COMING. HE WILL LOSE AT SOME POINT
AND WE WILL GO TO THE TRUMP ALTERNATIVE. TED CRUZ IS A
CLEAR TRUMP ALTERNATIVE. THAT IS HOW HE HAS
POSITIONED HIMSELF. THAT IS, AGAIN, WHO IS PLAYING.
THAT’S WHY ñ YOU WANT HONEST? AT EVERY TURN HE HAS
BLOWN DONALD TRUMP. OH, TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT THIS
AND THAT. HE’S ALL OVER ME. A MONTH AGO, AFTER THE FIRST
ñ OR MAYBE AFTER THE RAPIST IMMIGRANT COMMENTS, HE WAS ON
FOX AND HE CONDEMNED TRUMP. AND I THINK HE VERY QUICKLY
RECOGNIZED WHAT MOST OF US AGREE WITH, THAT TRUMP
CAN’T MAKE IT. SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN WHETHER
IT’S IN THREE MONTHS, OR SIX MONTHS, OR TOMORROW. AND RATHER THAN JUMPING ON,
HE WANTS TO IMMEDIATELY INHERIT THOSE VOTERS. HE THINKS, OH, I WILL JUST
PRAISE EVERY SINGLE THING TRUMP DOES AND WHEN HE COLLAPSES
I WILL SUCK THOSE GUYS UP. I DON’T NECESSARILY THINK
THAT THOSE TRUMP VOTERS GO TO ONE PERSON. I THINK THOSE TRUMP VOTERS
ARE DIFFERENT PEOPLE. WE DON’T KNOW EXACTLY
WHO THE HELL ñ THEY ARE DIFFERENT, BUT I
THINK TED CRUZ IS THINKING HE CAN TAKE THEM AND THAT HE HAS A LESS
CLEAR FOOLISH BOMBASTIC NATURE. AFTER ALL HE IS A
SENATOR FROM TEXAS. HE SEEMS MORE LIKE A PRESIDENT
ON THE WORST GREAT SCALE EVER. MAYBE IF TRUMP BLOWS UP, AND
TRUMP IF HE LIKES CRUZ, SAYS GO SUPPORT HIM. VERY QUICKLY, I
THINK YOU ARE RIGHT. I THINK TED CRUZ IS NOT
WORRYING ABOUT THAT NOW. I THINK HE PRESUMES THAT HE WILL
TAKE A LOT OF THOSE VOTERS, PLUS HE WILL HAVE HIS OWN. NOW, LET’S GO TO THE
HEART OF THIS ISSUE. LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW LOW
THIS POSITION IS. NOW ALMOST ALL THE REPUBLICANS
ARE ON BOARD. LET’S GIVE YOU THE REST OF
MICKELSON, CRUZ’S HYPOCRISY, AND COME BACK
AND TALK ABOUT ñ THEY WOULD LITERALLY HAVE TO DO
GESTAPO TACTICS. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT
THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO. LET’S SEE CRUZ AND MICKELSON AND
ONE MORE CLIP. ANYONE WHO WAS IN THE STATE OF
IOWA THAT IS NOT HERE LEGALLY, AND CANNOT DEMONSTRATE
THEIR LEGAL STATUS ñ CONGRESSMAN KING INTRODUCED
LEGISLATION TO GET RID OF BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP, EVEN AT
ONE TIME JOHN KASICH DID. HE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT FOR SOME
REASON, WOULD YOU SUPPORT THAT? ABSOLUTELY. DO WE NEED TO CHANGE THE
CONSTITUTION? AS A POLICY MATTER, I THINK
IT IS BASIC COMMON SENSE THAT WE SHOULD BE INCENTIVIZING
ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO BE
PROVIDING REWARD FOR PEOPLE WHO BREAK THE LAW AND COME HERE. I WOULD KNOW BY THE WAY, THAT
THAT HAS BEEN MY CONSISTENT POSITION PUBLICLY AND IN WRITING
SINCE I BEGAN RUNNING FOR THE UNITED STATES SENATE. SO FOUR YEARS AGO, MY POSITION
BEFORE THIS WAS A HOT ISSUE, FOUR YEARS AGO MY
POSITION WAS OF COURSE WE SHOULD END BIRTHRIGHT
CITIZENSHIP. WHAT A FUCKING LIAR.
JOHN, GIVE US HIS REAL QUOTE. HERE IS EXACTLY WHAT HE
SAID FOUR YEARS AGO. “BACK THEN THE 14TH AMENDMENT PROVIDES FOR
BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP. I’VE LOOKED AT THE LEGAL
ARGUMENTS AGAINST IT, AND I WILL TELL YOU AS A SUPREME COURT
LITIGATOR THOSE ARGUMENTS ARE NOT VERY GOOD. AS MUCH AS SOMEONE MAY DISLIKE
THE POLICY BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP, IT IS IN THE U.S.
CONSTITUTION. AND I DON’T LIKE IT WHEN
FEDERAL JUDGES SET ASIDE THE CONSTITUTION BECAUSE THEIR
POLICY PREFERENCES ARE DIFFERENT. I THINK IT IS A MISTAKE FOR
CONSERVATIVES TO BE FOCUSING ON TRYING TO FIGHT WHAT
THE CONSTITUTION SAYS ON BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP. I THINK WE ARE FAR BETTER OFF
FOCUSING ON SECURING THE BORDER, BECAUSE BIRTHRIGHT
CITIZENSHIP WOULD BE AN ISSUE IF WE CAN HAVE PEOPLE
COMING IN ILLEGALLY.” LET’S JUST BE CLEAR, THE
MAINSTREAM MEDIA IN THEIR INSANE NEUTRALITY, WHILE NOT
CALLING IT AS IT IS, TED CRUZ IS A PURPOSEFUL LIAR. HE WAS ON PURPOSE, HE
DOES IT ALL THE TIME. HE KNOWS WHAT HE SAID, THAT IS
WHY HE REFERENCED IT. HE SAID BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP
IS IN THE CONSTITUTION AND IT WOULD BE FOOLISH TO
CONCENTRATE ON IT. YOU ARE A FUCKING LIAR.
THERE IS NO WAY AROUND IT. THAT IS AS BIG A LIE AS
I HAVE EVER SEEN. THEY WILL PLAY AROUND IN THE NEW
YORK TIMES, THEY WILL PLAY PATTY CAKE.
THEY WILL NEVER CALL HIM A LIAR. TED CRUZ IS A DESPICABLE LIAR. THAT WAS ON THE DUKE MACHADO.
NOW HE IS ON THE JAN MICKELSON SHOW, SO MAYBE THAT IS THE
DIFFERENCE. GOOD POINT. ALSO, IT WAS A TUESDAY.
DIFFERENT DAY. DIFFERENT COLORED TIE. OF COURSE TED CRUZ IS AGAINST
ABORTION, BECAUSE IF THE BABY NEVER GROWS UP, YOU WILL
NEVER HAVE A CHANCE TO REVOKE ITS BIRTHRIGHT
CITIZENSHIP. NOW LET’S GO ñ THE GUY WHO TED CRUZ IS TALKING
TO IS PROSLAVERY. IF YOU DIDN’T SEE
YESTERDAY’S SHOW, ñ WHO HAS A RADIO SHOW THAT
PEOPLE GO ON, IS PROSLAVERY. NO, HE IS LITERALLY PROSLAVERY. HE SAID BEFORE, TED CRUZ HEARS
IT AND SAYS I LIKE THIS GUY. THEN WE WILL CONNECT ALL OF
IT AFTER THIS CLIP. ANYONE WHO IS IN THE STATE
OF IOWA THAT IS NOT HERE LEGALLY, AND CANNOT DEMONSTRATE
THEIR LEGAL STATUS TO THE SATISFACTION OF THE LOCAL AND
STATE AUTHORITIES HERE IN THE STATE OF IOWA, BECOME
PROPERTY OF THE STATE OF IOWA. AND GUESS WHAT?
YOU WILL BE BUILDING A WALL. WE WILL COMPEL YOUR LABOR. YOU WILL BELONG TO
THE UNITED STATES. YOUR IDEA IS CLEVER, BUT IT SOUNDS
AN AWFUL LOT LIKE SLAVERY. WHAT WOULD BE THE
NATURE OF THE FALLOUT? I THINK EVERYBODY WILL THINK
IT SOUNDS LIKE SLAVERY. WELL, WHAT’S WRONG WITH
SLAVERY? AND BY THE WAY I AM
DEFINITELY NOT KIDDING. HE SAID PEOPLE WOULD BECOME
PROPERTY OF THE STATE OF IOWA. IT DOES SOUND LIKE SLAVERY. IT’S IN THE BIBLE. AND THEN THEY BUILT A WALL
ON THE ILLINOIS BORDER? ON THE DANGEROUS SOUTHERN
MISSOURI BORDER? HE PROBABLY MEANS THAT RECORD
WESTERN NEVADA BORDER. I LOVE THAT EVERY CRAZY
CONSERVATIVE ñ THIS IS FASCIST TALK ACTUALLY,
THAT HE IS SUGGESTING THAT PEOPLE OF IOWA WILL BUILD A
WALL I GUESS, AROUND IOWA. I DON’T THINK YOU CAN COMPEL THE
PROPERTY OF IOWA TO GO TO TEXAS. OR THESE UNITED STATES.
IT’S A VERY CLEVER IDEA. YOU PUT DOWN HOW HORRENDOUS IT
IS THAT HE HAS THE SHOW WHERE HE CAN SAY THINGS LIKE THIS. TED CRUZ, WE HAD SAID THAT HE
HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ON THIS GUY’S SHOW WHICH LOOKS
BAD. WE WOULD NEVER HAVE IMAGINED IN
OUR WILDEST DREAMS THAT A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE WOULD GO
ON THE SHOW THAT WEEK AFTER THOSE COMMENTS. THEY WERE BEING ñ CAN YOU
IMAGINE IF BERNIE SANDERS OR HILLARY CLINTON WENT ON A
SHOW THAT ADVOCATED FOR SLAVERY. THE DAMAGE THAT WOULD
BE DONE TO THEM. BUT HERE’S WHY THAT WILL
HAPPEN TO TED CRUZ. THEY WILL NEVER MAKE AN ISSUE
OUT OF THINGS EVEN WHEN IT’S HANDED TO THEM ON
A SILVER PLATTER. THEY CALL OUT TED CRUZ FOR
SAYING ONE THING FOUR YEARS AGO AND THEN SAYING ANOTHER NOW. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO DO IT
THAT’S WHY IT IS A PHENOMENON THAT WILL
CONTINUE TO HAPPEN. TO THE VERY CORE OF THIS
IDEA, LET’S GAME THIS OUT. NOW THEY ARE ALL
SERIOUS ABOUT IT. MORE THAN HALF THE REPUBLICAN
CANDIDATES SAY LET’S TAKE AWAY BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP. RUBIO ñ HE WOULD LITERALLY
HAVE HIS CITIZENSHIP REVOKED. HERE IS WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. THEY WOULD GO AROUND AND SAY
OKAY, YOU ARE NO LONGER A U.S. CITIZEN. SO, FOR EXAMPLE I GAVE THIS
EXAMPLE BEFORE, IN MY FAMILY WE WOULD LOSE A
COUPLE OF FAMILY MEMBERS. I WAS NATURALIZED, I AM ONE OF
THE FEW PEOPLE THAT WOULD REMAIN. I WAS LUCKY BECAUSE
I WASN’T BORN HERE. IF I WAS BORN HERE, THEY COULD
REVOKE MY CITIZENSHIP. BUT MY SISTER WAS BORN HERE AS
MY PARENTS WENT BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN TURKEY AND
AMERICA. ANCHOR BABY, GONE. MY NEPHEWS, BORN HERE. THE MOST BLUE BLOODED AMERICAN
CITIZENS, WRONG, YOUR MOM NEVER HAD CITIZENSHIP BECAUSE
WE REVOKED IT, THIS IS INSANITY BUT LITERALLY
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. SO THEN MY NEPHEWS, GONE.
AND ON AND ON IT GOES. IF WE WENT TO EAST LA,
HOW MANY PEOPLE ñ EVERYBODY’S CITIZENSHIP
WOULD BE REVOKED. NOT JUST TO EAST LA, EVERYWHERE
ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOT JUST LATINOS. I AM LIVID ABOUT THIS BECAUSE
IT’S NOT A FANTASY WORLD ANYMORE. WE HAVE A LEADING REPUBLICAN,
THERE ARE ONLY TWO MAJOR PARTIES. ONE OF THE MAJOR PARTIES BELIEVE
THIS SHOULD ACTUALLY HAPPEN IN THE UNITED STATES. IF YOU DON’T TAKE IT SERIOUSLY
BECAUSE YOU THINK IT SOUNDS SO OUTRAGEOUS THAT IT COULDN’T
HAPPEN, THAT IS HOW OUTRAGEOUS THINGS HAPPEN WHEN
PEOPLE KEEP SAYING, OH, THEY PROBABLY DON’T MEAN IT. THEY ARE GOING TO RIP THIS
COUNTRY APART. AND BY THE WAY WHEN THEY GO INTO
THESE PLACES, WHETHER IT’S IMMIGRANTS FROM ITALY OR MEXICO
OR WHEREVER, AND THEY COME IN WITH THEIR GUNS, AND THEY RIP
FAMILIES APART AND SEND HALF THIS COUNTRY BACK TO
WHEREVER THE HELL THEY THINK WE ARE FROM, YOU’RE
GOING TO HAVE A REVOLUTION. WHAT DO YOU THINK PEOPLE
ARE GOING TO DO? TAKE 40 PERCENT OF LOS
ANGELES AND REVOKE THEIR CITIZENSHIP, WHAT DO YOU
THINK IS GOING TO HAPPEN? THESE MONSTERS, THESE MANIACS,
ARE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, AND THEY
HAVE A DECENT CHANCE OF WINNING. THAT’S WHERE WE ARE TODAY. PEOPLE
ARE GOING ON A GUY’S SHOW WHO’S PROSLAVERY.
AND THEY ARE PROUD OF IT. IF YOU’RE A REPUBLICAN, AND
YOU ARE IN THIS PARTY, ñ SOME OF YOU SAY, AFTER
SEEING THIS PANEL I WOULD QUESTION WHETHER I SHOULD BE A
REPUBLICAN. THIS IS WHY WE SAY
REPUBLICANS ARE VILE. I WASN’T BORN A DEMOCRAT. I WAS A REPUBLICAN WHEN
I WAS GROWING UP. IF YOU STAY IN THIS PARTY, YES,
BY DEFINITION BY VOTING FOR PEOPLE LIKE THIS YOU BECOME
LONESOME AND UN-AMERICAN. THE DAMAGE THAT WILL HAPPEN TO
THIS COUNTRY, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE.
