Top Obama Official Issues Disturbing Warning To Ted Cruz

by Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | December 15, 2017 10:00 am

A former Obama official is making threats against Ted Cruz, but we can forgive that, right? Never mind he’s a Marxist and a radical idealogue.

There has been a flurry of media coverage since Doug Jones won over Roy Moore in this week’s special election for the Alabama Senate.

So, on Twitter, the former Sectary for Housing and Urban Development under Barack Obama said this: “Be afraid, @tedcruz . Be very afraid,” Castro tweeted. If I were Castro, I’d be very careful who he threatens. Cruz is not someone who shrinks from a challenge or a fight and he can defend himself. The Democrats are getting very cocky after taking down Moore. But make no mistake, Ted Cruz is no Roy Moore and is in a whole different league. The reason Castro didn’t run against Cruz in 2018 is because he knows Cruz would beat the pants off him.

Be afraid, @tedcruz[1] . Be very afraid.

But is Castro referring to the midterms in November 2018 where Cruz will face the ballot box? Or is Castro here hinting that he knows of a similar operative that will take place against Cruz? Sounds like a definite threat to me. The allegations against Roy Moore were thick and we still don’t have clear answers on any of them. But, we do know that Moore has said he will be bringing his accusers to court, so over the next few months and years, we are likely to learn more about whether his accusers really did experience harassment or whether Moore was innocent the whole time. And whatever happened to innocent till proven guilty? I still believe all of this was a political hit job and unfortunately it worked.


Ted Cruz, at least according to Steve Bannon who campaigned for Roy Moore over Trump’s Luther Strange, has indicated that Ted Cruz is the only Republican who shouldn’t fear for his seat[4], because of his support with both the establishment-types as well as with the MAGA crowd. I find that Bannon isn’t quite the election genius he’s played up to be in his own press since I think he has some fundamental misunderstandings about how information moves online, or how to harness and direct online outrage. But he is a fiery person who knows how to drum up media. Hopefully he’s right about Cruz, but it’s hard not to bet on Ted. I don’t think I’ve talked to a single conservative who has any problem supporting the man over a Democrat. I still love the guy and always will. He’s a constitutional conservative and a good man.

After Moore lost, Trump went on Twitter to say what he had always said… that he wanted Strange to win the Republican nomination because he was not certain that Moore would be able to win in a general election. And his instincts were correct on that. Jones’ victory tightens Republicans’ margin in the Senate, giving them just a 51-49 advantage over Democrats heading into the 2018 midterm elections.

The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!

In the past, Julian Castro had been considered a possible contender for a running mate for Hillary Clinton despite his inability to keep from breaking the laws that bound him from giving his official opinion on topics he is legally not entitled to speak about. While he was the Secretary for Housing and Urban Development, he broke the federal Hatch Act by giving an interview to Katie Couric, where he went beyond his position and made political statements. After being asked about this violation, Obama said that “Secretary Castro acknowledged the mistake that he made,”[6] because federal secretaries breaking the law while speaking to the media is just like a young child confessing to being the one responsible for spilling their finger paints on the carpet. I’m afraid it was a bit more than that. But it’s typical for a progressive Democrat.

Cruz is facing a challenge from Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) in 2018. O’Rourke has raised nearly $2.8 million since he jumped into the race, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. O’Rourke tweeted, “If you weren’t sure if our campaign to take on Ted Cruz was possible, you have to know it is now,” the email said. “Next stop, Texas 2018.” But Cruz is still heavily favored in the race. Texas is after all at heart a conservative state. It hasn’t gone commie red just yet. I wouldn’t count your chickens just yet guys.
