(CNSNews.com) Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told attendees at a Family Research Council pastors retreat that Senate Democrats want to limit free speech through amending the Constitution.

 

When you think it can’t get any worse, it does, Cruz said at the FRC’s Watchmen on the Wall 2014 event in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. This year, I’m sorry to tell you, the United States Senate is going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment.

Calling these perilous, perilous times, Cruz said Senate Democrats have said they are ready to vote on the amendment, Senate Joint Resolution 19 an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has announced the Senate Democrats are scheduling a vote on a constitutional amendment to give Congress the authority to regulate political speech, because elected officials have decided they don’t like it when the citizenry has the temerity to criticize what they’ve done, he said.

They don’t like it when pastors in their community stand up and speak the truth, Cruz said to an audience of hundreds of pastors from across the country.

And I’ll note this amendment, which has 41 Democratic senators as co-sponsors 41 Democrats have signed on to repealing the First Amendment, Cruz said. It explicitly says nothing in this new amendment shall abridge the freedom of the press.

So the New York Times is protected, but it doesn’t say the same thing about the freedom of speech, Cruz said. It doesn’t say the same thing about religious liberty.

Cruz said Democrats want to limit free speech.

What it says is that politicians in Washington have unlimited constitutional authority to muzzle each and every one of you if you’re saying things the government finds inconvenient, Cruz said.

Cruz was not scheduled to speak at the event but showed up to introduce one of the speakers his father, Rafael Cruz, an ordained minister.

Cruz said his father embodied the American dream, having emigrated from Cuba, landing his first job as a dishwasher and going on to be a successful businessman.

Cruz related his father’s advice on preserving liberty in America.

When we faced oppression in Cuba, I had a place to flee to, the senior Cruz said. If we lose our freedom here, where do we go?

Directive Outlines Obama’s Policy To Use The Military Against Citizens

A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administration’s potential use of military force against Americans.

The directive contains noncontroversial provisions on support to civilian fire and emergency services, special events and the domestic use of the Army Corps of Engineers.

The troubling aspect of the directive outlines presidential authority for the use of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, in operations against domestic unrest.
