Ted Cruz debates Code Pink: Why would you want to send $100 billion to people who murder Americans?

posted at 4:01 pm on July 23, 2015 by Allahpundit

Via the Examiner, there’s an uncharitable answer to that question but I’ll stick with the more charitable one. Namely, these people have always been willing to take Iran’s professions of peaceful intent seriously. After all, why would they believe a warmongering fanatic like Ted Cruz when they could believe the Ayatollah Khamenei? In fact, didn’t Khamenei say just this past week that there’s a fatwa in place that bars Iran from building nuclear weapons? Granted, that fatwa may not actually exist, and even if it does, Iranian clerics have been known to revist fatwas as political circumstances require. And of course it’s contradicted by plenty of evidence gathered by international nuclear inspectors. But again: Why would you take Ted Cruz’s word about Iran’s intentions, notwithstanding the many American soldiers killed in Iraq by Iranian-made IEDs, when the Iranians are telling you otherwise?

What this actually is, whether Medea Benjamin and Code Pink are aware of it or not, is the Law of Merited Impossibility at work. That’s a term coined by Rod Dreher in the context of the gay-marriage debate to describe the attitude of many SSM supporters to religious liberty. First they scoff at their opponents’ doomsday scenarios (“it’s ridiculous to think business owners will be forced to cater gay weddings despite their religious objections”); then, when doomsday comes to pass, they rationalize the outcome as a matter of simple justice (“you anti-gay Christians had it coming”). You’ll see something similar eventually from hardcore Iran doves. Right now we’re in the “impossibility” stage, where it’s ludicrous for Ted Cruz to parade all of these horribles to defeat a deal that will prevent war by keeping a bomb out of Iran’s hands. Later, after Iran’s spent a chunk of its $100 billion windfall on expanding Shiite terror across the region and has finally gotten caught working on a nuke, we’ll be told that their behavior was not only inevitable but understandable and even just as a response to American imperialism. There are no such things as foreign belligerents, no matter how many “death to America” chants they’re guilty of. There are only peaceful nations who have been alienated by U.S. aggression. The next time Code Pink debates Cruz, they’ll tell him that the deal would have worked if not for all the wingnut saber-rattling.

It was nice of Cruz not to antagonize the Europeans, though, by telling Benjamin that the reason they’re so excited about the deal is precisely because they want money to start flowing to Iran again. This was an economic negotiation for them more so than a national-security one. Exit quotation from Noah Pollak: “Entertaining to hear Dems who’ve spent 10 yrs citing Iraq war intel failures say they support Iran deal b/c we have great intel.”

He is certainly the most intelligent. Fortunately, the most intelligent isn’t the best candidate, otherwise humanity would have ceased to exist a long time ago. What we need, is an individual who possesses both an profound intellect (something most of congress and Barry are sorely lacking) and morals and ethics. Ted seems to posses both, only time will tell though.

If, the debates are scored on ration and logical point, then yes I 100 percent agree. Ted may unfortunately be hamper by his adherence to civility. Who the winner of a debate these days is no longer dictated by having the most rational, logical or reasonable position, but on who shouts down their opponent the best.

For some reason, this reminds me of when Pelosi and some of the other batshit Democrats said that their own efforts to let the Bush tax cuts expire back in 2010 amounted to a “tax hike” led by Republicans, because the tax cuts were “supposed” to expire. (Democrats refused to make them permanent, go figure.)

Here, Obama/Kerry are willingly removing sanctions that will give Iran billions in economic stimulus, not because they were “supposed” to expire or some other lawyer-y nonsense.

So, where are Pelosi and the Jewish Democrats on this? /sarc

I love what Donald Trump is doing to the GOP Establishment, but I would actually prefer a Ted Cruz presidency (Based on what I have thus far seen of him). I would like to see the GOP Establishment languishing in Dante’s Ninth circle of Hell (well, as long as I wasn’t there personally to witness it). But mostly, I would love to see the United States of America return to the Constitutional Republic that it was originally created to be.

The GOP Establishment are the most corrupt bastages that have ever called themselves American citizens. They deserve the very worst that Human or even demonic imagination can conjure up for them to suffer.

Via the Examiner, there’s an uncharitable answer to that question but I’ll stick with the more charitable one.

Why in the Hell would you stick with the “more charitable” answer when anyone with two neurons firing in succession knows the uncharitable answer is the right one?

Obama’s intentions are perfectly clear. He’s intentionally empowering Iran and setting them up a a regional power and nuclear counterweight to Israel and the US. He’s intentionally degrading American power and influence in the region and in the process significantly degrading our national security and Israel’s.

There is NO GOOD REASON to ignore this reality. Ignoring this reality is enabling that rat bastard in the White House while he sells us out to the bloody terrorist murderers in Iran.

Why tiptoe around the reality, Allah?

Why not tell the truth?

In just the last week, Cruz has called for defunding Planned Parenthood and made a formal request to the DOJ that they be prosecuted, held hearings in the Senate on illegal alien criminals and Obama’s “lawlessness” regarding deportations, put forth a bill to end the Export Import Bank which is just crony capitalism and has given several speeches on the threat of ISIS. Trump has talked a lot, given out the phone number of an opponent, called people names and announced lawsuits against several entities. The whole reason the media is covering Trump is because they don’t want to cover Cruz.

Well, I’m glad some of your are impressed that he can handle a Code Pink protestor.
But if you want a clear and simple example of the pure theatrics and hyperbole that is a Ted Cruz ‘argument’:
“Hundreds of billions” he says will be used to “murder Americans”.
I know he’s throwing out red meat here, but just once I’d like to see him make a rational and fact based point.
Maybe at this stage of his campaign is just about getting scared and low-info voters to think he’s the one to save them from certain doom.

Poor Ollie–can’t even troll without getting his head handed to him pronto.

I’m a traitor because I put American interests above Saudi and Israeli interests? I’m a traitor for supporting an open dialog and peaceful solution in Iran? You people are backwards. When Clio recites history, we shall see John Kerry was one of America’s greatest diplomats, he will be looked at like an Adams or Franklin.

OK. I get it. Hey! Do Moron Brains Matter?

No, you’re a traitor because you openly disseminate propaganda on behalf of enemies of America.

You have a right to hate Jews as much as your perverted little Democrat mind allows, but promoting Ayatollahs who chant “Death to America” is an act of treason.

In just the last week, Cruz has called for defunding Planned Parenthood and made a formal request to the DOJ that they be prosecuted, held hearings in the Senate on illegal alien criminals and Obama’s “lawlessness” regarding deportations, put forth a bill to end the Export Import Bank which is just crony capitalism and has given several speeches on the threat of ISIS. Trump has talked a lot, given out the phone number of an opponent, called people names and announced lawsuits against several entities. The whole reason the media is covering Trump is because they don’t want to cover Cruz.

Thanks for that great summary of the tireless, proactive efforts of Sen. Cruz. Those of us paying attention know all of this, but the media (as you say) are keeping the general population in the dark.

It’s more likely you’ll drown on your way to starvation.

Is it my fault that you’re grossly uninformed? Allow me to shine the light on Cruz and his despicable behavior. He equated insults to Israel as the same thing as Christian beheadings and crucifixions to a room full of ME Christians. He was promptly booed off the stage. He walked away with his tail between his legs. His father was a known terrorist fighter for Castro during the revolution. This man is a dangerous war mongering freak who couldn’t get elected in any other state but the hell hole that is Texas.

Good stuff!

I’m sure the Iranians have very a good use for the extra dough. Just think what they have been able to accomplish on a shoe string budget.

Bmore on July 23, 2015 at 5:47 PM

Plus Ted Cruz has beady little eyes that are always shifting. He looks like a possum.

OliverB on July 23, 2015 at 5:47 PM

Ollie, you really aren’t very good at this.

Bmore on July 23, 2015 at 5:48 PM

Awesome!

Dear Salem:

Change your socks. They stink.

CurtZHP on July 23, 2015 at 5:07 PM

I get the impression that they’re just phoning it in at this point. Not even a hint of effort or creativity.

When we finally do have to take out Iran, I hope they can shrink-wrap Medea Benjamin, stick some fins on her and drop her out with some of the other ordinance. It could be another US military first – The stupid bomb.

ROFL

Code Pinko finally shows their ugly mugs against a dude who isn’t even presnit, yet for the last six years they’re nowhere to be found while Dog Eater is overthrowing foreign governments, getting the U.S. involved in foreign civil wars, and vaporizing foreign citizens.

Just fess up already you spinster, harpy, batazz crazy retards, you’re only against Republicans committing all of the above.

Bishop on July 23, 2015 at 4:15 PM

Exactly! Deathly silent on Dog Eater’s behavior, but they do manage to show up wearing giant VaJayJays at the Republican National Convention – because of the War on Women. F’n freaks.

Cruz has more intellect than maybe all other candidates put together.

However, I wish his logic would pick the winning strategy of column 1:

http://www.jmisys.com/immigrationmarches/zogby5.html

Cruz has said he is against “pathway to citizenship”, but he does advocate for some kind of legalized residency, with no chance of citizenship.

1. Legalized residency of 11 to 30 million illegal aliens does not address the problem of unemployed Americans. And if you think there are jobs Americans won’t do, you’re right — here they are:
http://jmisys.com/CALOSHA/

2. The DAY AFTER 11 to 30 million illegal aliens get their legalized residency, La Raza, every Democrat and many GOPe will say that we cannot tolerate “second class citizens”. You know it.

Just today Trump punted on this question by saying, “we’ll talk about that later”.

Only Walker has clearly and recently espoused column 1 (And he has flipped since a few months or years ago).

Still looking for a committed candidate who can advocate for the most popular, fair, efficient, economical, and just policy — attrition through enforcement.

Cruz / Walker

I saw the video. You’re a liar.

Since you are making the claim that Cruz walked away with his tail between his legs, produce a video as evidence. Otherwise, you’re a liar.

His father was a known terrorist fighter for Castro during the revolution.

The fact that his father fought against a dictator gives me hope. The fact that he fought on the side of a leftist should give you hope if you weren’t such a lying troll.

This man is a dangerous war mongering freak who couldn’t get elected in any other state but the hell hole that is Texas.

The comment of a typical leftist scum.
