Cruz to introduce constitutional amendment for term limits

Sen. Ted Cruz announced Friday that he will introduce a constitutional amendment to limit the number of terms members of the Senate and the House of Representatives can serve.

Cruz, along with Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., made the announcement in an op-ed in the Washington Post, and said their plan is a great way to implement President-elect Trump's plan to "drain the swamp." The proposal would limit members of the Senate to two terms, while members of the House would be limited to three terms in office.

"On Election Day, the American people made a resounding call to 'drain the swamp' that is modern Washington. Yet on Capitol Hill, we seem mired in the same cycle of complacency," wrote the pair of conservative lawmakers. "The game hasn't changed, and the players remain the same. Thankfully, there's a solution available that, while stymied by the permanent political class, enjoys broad public support."

"Passing term limits will demonstrate that Congress has actually heard the voice of the people," they wrote. "We believe that the rise of political careerism in modern Washington is a drastic departure from what the founders intended of our federal governing bodies. To effectively 'drain the swamp,' we believe it is past time to enact term limits for Congress."

  • Al Sharpton is calling for a season of "civil disobedience " and is attempting to block Jeff Sessions from becoming attorney general. What the hell is Civil Disobedience? What laws exactly does he want people to be disobedient to?? If he's asking them to do something other than protest (which is legal) he should be arrested for encouraging people to break the law. I hope Trump puts him in jail for not paying millions in back taxes. He's as much a Reverand as Elijah Mohammed is. Why he's been allowed to repeatedly visit the Whitehorse show the total disregard for the Whitehouse and the law of this administration. I'm still wondering why the right did not stand up from allowing members of the Muslim Brotherhood to part of Obamas cabinet. Here's a side note: several Jewish organizations are working to rebuild the 3rd Temple. They already have the priests clothing and various temple articles. If and when the temple is complete its only a matter of time before the Antichrist seats himself there and demands universal worship. That being said it looks like the great tribulation is not far off.
    I encourage and pray everyone honestly look at your spiritual condition. It's easy to get tunnel vision on politics and miss the big picture. If we are about to enter the great tribulation, Jesus is standing at the door.
    • Shalom Michael, and all here today.  On the central East Coast, Norfolk/ Va. Beach/ Chesapeake, thawing out from a snow storm; 14" in my front yard.

      May I suggest that all read, study and pray for understanding through the Holy Spirit for spiritual understanding of Matthew chapter 6?  I believe it to be an essential in these times we are in.

      Blessings and peace to all my fellow patriots.

      • The Nascent Sanhedrin is calling on Russian President Vladmir Putin and US president-elect Donald Trump to join forces and fulfill their Biblically-mandated roles by rebuilding the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

        Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin, contacted Breaking Israel News to announce that the election of Trump, who has promised to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, coupled with Putin’s expressed desire for the Temple to be rebuilt, prompted the Jewish court to send a letter offering the two the opportunity to act as modern-day Cyrus figures: non-Jewish kings who recognize the importance of Israel and the Temple.

        Cyrus the Great, King of Persia in the sixth century BCE, announced in the first year of his reign that he was prompted by God to make a decree that the Temple in Jerusalem should be rebuilt.

        Thus saith Koresh king of Paras: All the kingdoms of the earth hath Hashem, the God of heaven, given me; and He hath charged me to build Him a house in Yerushalayim, which is in Yehuda. Ezra 1:2
        Cyrus sent the Jews under his rule back to Israel with a considerable sum of money with which to rebuild the Temple. The Sanhedrin plans to call on the two world leaders to take up this ancient Biblical decree and support the Jewish people in their holy mission.

        Rabbi Weiss explained that the US elections have made the eternal Jewish dream a very real possibility.

        “We are poised to rebuild the Temple. The political conditions today, in which the two most important national leaders in the world support the Jewish right to Jerusalem as their spiritual inheritance, is historically unprecedented,” Rabbi Weiss told Breaking Israel News.

        Shalom Lee. Thanks for the Scriptural reference. I am posting this news from a Jewish news agency it was written Nov. 16, 2016 so people will understand the reality of this. God could of raised Donald Trump up to use him as a modern day Cyrus.
        • Prayer is our best answer to what the lunatics are doing; it seems there are more of them, insane, than there is of us that are sane! You are right, we are moving quickly towards the final days and the entry of the final Anti Christ which will be a Jew. We must be ardently attentive.

          Each and every legislator, in the last 16 years, but more so the last eight years is guilty of treason and/ or high treason. When they failed to call up the Sargent of Arms to fulfill his job description, after the first act of treason, they all should have been taken from t heir jobs and replaced.

          • I totally agree- they should have all been charged with misprision of felony, and removed from office.  They all knew Obama had committed multiple acts of treason, and it would have taken only ONE of them to submit a bill for impeachment.  No one cared enough - they all care more about lining their pockets than they do about their country.  Sad...

  • While we are on the subject of term limits..where is the legislation that Trump wants...no salaries to follow them and no perks?

  • I wrote so many articles and blogs on this situation, many of them here...the same question remains, why is he still in the Senate?  Texas could axe him I believe but so far nothing.

    While I am here...please call your senators, or email..support Sessions and Kelly...they come up first...we need to get these two in and then Sessions can start putting together what he will do against what HRC and her ilk have been up to..I hope he includes all the pedophilia that she is involved in around the world and here; also Obama..arrest, bring to trial and convict..then shoot them all for high treason and that means most of our legislative bodies..maybe politicians would straighten up and out if they knew this was ahead of them.

  • As of December 25, 2016 Obama has played over 300 rounds of golf since he moved into the Whitehouse. Remind you of anyone? He fiddles while Rome burns. He and his family have spent in excess of 90 million dollars on family vacations and paid not one red dime. He and his wife are getting 20 million dollars each for writing their memoirs which they will toute their successes and lament that under Trump and the Republicans all hope is gone which you will probably hear in his goodbye address. The Democrates have vowed to fight Trump on every issue so Obama, Hillary and the left have no desire to work together for the good of the Nation as they continue to put their personal left wing agenda over the needs of the people. Hopefully as they continue to become unhinged and people can see their hypocracy they and their agenda will be seen for what it truly is.
    No nation can endure when their leaders put their needs and beliefs above those of the people. The lefts agenda, hypocrisy is out in the open for all to see. Unfortunatly many follow them because they believe having the government meet their every need is better than being free and independent being able to set their own destiny.
    is.no
    • That is true..so get the Democrats and the card carrying Communists out..it was illegal to put them in a public office..Sotomayer needs to be taken off the Court as she has been and still is affiliated with the Communist party.

    • He is an alien! How can he do this?

      Also, anyone else see that Rand Paul is re-writing Obamacare and Trump is o.k. with it?

"Survival is all about being able to find food, shelter, and how to fight back.Remember Sun ZU said an Army moves on it's stomach. Which means in order to fight when you get there you have to  be able too.And a starving Army wont put up much of a fight.
