Protecting the Lap Dog- Corporate media’s digital powers to push propaganda onto the American people and leaving them with few choices for Independent media is a plan of the radical far left and their RINO allies- and US Senator Tex Cruz is supposed to know better than to join in on that group’s axis of control and domination over a free press in the US.
We know that it is near impossible to make DC hear the people and what the people want without honest and fair, Independent media; Cruz, whose family escaped tyranny to flea to the US- knows that well.
However, from a recent Breitbart article, it seems that Cruz is forgetting the things he has said about freedom and liberty that catapulted him into the nation’s consciousness as a firebrand against the administrative state.
Voters believed Cruz when he went on a campaign to “Make DC Listen’ in 2015, ahead of the Republican Presidential primary, gaining favorability then as an anti-establishment watchdog.

How can anyone make DC listen if all media is in favor of the radical left who love the administrative state and their uspurpations?
Cruz sounds as if he is about to betray the people’s trust- with one of the most deceitful moves against the embattled citizens of the US- who have few places to go for real information and data about their government overlords.
“Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has caved to the Democrats on legislation that would allow media organizations to create formal cartels to negotiate with Big Tech companies, several congressional aides and others familiar with the process told Breitbart News on Wednesday.
If Cruz goes forward with his plans to back—and allow the senate to advance—the legislation, then he will immediately become one of the biggest enablers of the establishment media and Big Tech giants and he could seriously jeopardize his political future,” Matthew Boyle reported in his exclusive for Breitbart News, adding:
“Cruz, who had previously jammed up a committee markup on the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) a few weeks ago, has now decided to give Klobuchar what she wanted and allow the Democrat proposal to proceed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee to eventually be considered by the full U.S. Senate.
Several aides on both sides of the JCPA fight familiar with the matter told Breitbart News on Wednesday that Cruz caved to Klobuchar and has agreed to changes to language he offered in an amendment to allow the bill to advance. When questioned repeatedly about it on Wednesday, Cruz’s office did not deny these aides’ characterization.
Cruz himself has not replied to inquiries from Breitbart News sent over text directly to the senator. Several Cruz staffers have refused to answer whether he cut a deal with Klobuchar, and they have refused to make the senator available for an interview to explain himself,” Boyle reported.
A Cruz spokesperson would only provide, when asked detailed and serious questions about the possibility of a deal and what form the deal would take, a generic statement claiming that Cruz opposes censorship of conservatives–something that would be inherently untrue if he votes for or simply even just enables Senate consideration of this legislation.
“Sen. Cruz is a fierce defender of the First Amendment and free speech and he will always fight to prevent Americans from being censored or silenced,” the Cruz spokesperson told Breitbart News.
Despite Cruz’s office’s refusal to answer specific questions about this, the Senate Judiciary Committee is considering the JCPA again—for the third week in a row—on Thursday. Late Wednesday, the committee circulated a clarifying amendment that does exactly what the various committee aides told Breitbart News that Cruz had caved to Klobuchar on: Alters the original Cruz amendment text, and removes things that Klobuchar said she could not support.
Boyle goes on:
“The office of Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA), who had previously undercut the broader bill to back Cruz’s amendment three weeks ago in committee, confirmed that Cruz caved to Klobuchar on record to the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Proponents of the JCPA—like Kennedy, and now Cruz—have falsely claimed it would help conservatives fight back against Big Tech. The legislation does no such thing as, among the serious structural problems, it has included no favored nations clause contained in it, which means that a group of media companies could get together on their own and negotiate a sweetheart deal with a big tech company but that deal would not apply to every media company.”
Lying to the American people about what their intentions are on these internship bills has cost the American people the loss of far more freedoms than peacefully posting their recipes for chicken soup of Facebook.
The loss of an open and free press to Big Tech giants has led to the allowance for politicians to do as they please, freely, and it is not the Independent media who needs to be controlled; it is the politicians who have access to our liberty and freedom.
Cruz will go down as a total hypocrite. Somewhere that means something.
