The radical far left and their RINO allies have a plan to protect the lap dog—corporate media’s digital capabilities to spread propaganda to American citizens while giving them few options for independent media—and US Senator Tex Cruz is supposed to know better than to join in on that group’s axis of control and dominance over a free press in the US.
Cruz, whose family fled tyranny to come to the US, is well aware that it is nearly difficult to have DC pay attention to the people and what the people want without honest and fair, Independent media.
Cruz appears to be forgetting, meanwhile, the statements he has made about freedom and liberty that propelled him into the national spotlight as a firebrand against the administrative state, according to a recent Breitbart piece.
Prior to the Republican presidential race in 2015, Cruz launched a campaign to “Make DC Listen,” winning support at the time for being an anti-establishment skeptic.

When the media favors the radical left, who like the administrative state and its usurpations, how can anyone expect DC to pay attention?
Cruz gives off the impression that he is ready to make one of the most dishonest moves against the US’s disenfranchised citizenry, who have few reliable sources for information about their oppressive government.
“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 an exclusive, 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 stated.
When questioned specifically and seriously about the likelihood of a deal and the specifics of the deal, a Cruz spokesperson would only respond with a generalized statement asserting that Cruz opposes the censorship of conservatives—which would be inherently false if he votes for or even just enables Senate consideration of this legislation.
The Cruz spokeswoman told Breitbart News, “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.”
Cruz’s office has declined to respond to inquiries on this specifically, but the Senate Judiciary Committee will be debating the JCPA once more on Thursday—for the third week in a row. Late on Wednesday, the committee issued a clarifying amendment that does exactly what the committee’s various aides said Cruz had done to appease Klobuchar: it modifies the Cruz amendment’s original text and strikes language that Klobuchar had declared she could not support.
“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.”
