Sen. Cruz Asks DOJ to Preserve All IRS-Related Documents

On Monday, Sen. Cruz sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch requesting that the Department of Justice (DOJ) preserve all Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents and information for investigation under the next administration. Sen. Cruz’s letter comes after the DOJ recently closed its investigation into improper targeting of conservative groups by the IRS.

"Make no mistake: the IRS’s targeting of ordinary citizens for their political viewpoints under this Administration is not a minor issue, and represents a significant breach of the public trust.  Even a casual observer of the IRS targeting scandal could not help but come to the conclusion that there is a strong appearance that the IRS, under this Administration’s political leadership, used the coercive tools available to the tax collection agency to harass people with conservative viewpoints," Sen. Cruz wrote.

Sen. Cruz Shines Light on Obama Administration’s Failure to Stand With American Victims of Terrorism

On Wednesday, Sen. Cruz chaired a hearing for the Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts titled “Justice Forsaken: How the Federal Government Fails the American Victims of Iranian and Palestinian Terrorism.” This hearing focused on the federal government’s failure to support the American victims of Iranian and Palestinian terror in their search for justice.

"The history of Palestinian and Iranian terrorism against Americans is extensive and continues to this day. Americans have long been the targets of Palestinian hijackings, suicide bombings, and assassinations, in part because of our nation’s close relationship and friendship with Israel," Sen. Cruz said. "In litigation, the Administration sides with the terrorist against American citizens, and when negotiating with the Ayatollah Khamenei, the Administration ignores American hostages languishing in Iranian prisons; it ignores the victims of terrorism… That is a national disgrace."

Cruz, Fiorina, & Rubio Court the Energy Vote

Texas senator Ted Cruz was a guest of the OIPA in August when he said "If you look at the way the regulatory state is growing, it is out of control. It is a permanent branch of government: unelected bureaucrats. Just under Obamacare, there are over 20,000 pages of regulation. It's over seven feet tall." He said "If we come out of 2016 with a mandate, that's how you get major legislative change. You have to make it more politically risky to do the wrong thing than the right thing."

Cruz was introduced at the event by Rep. Jim Bridenstine, R-Tulsa, who endorsed Cruz and has gone as far as co-sponsoring the American Energy Renaissance Act with the Texas senator. Bridenstine said of his legislative partner "Ted Cruz is a leader among leaders. He is somebody that stands for what we all believe in in this room. I want to do everything I can to get this gentleman elected."

Sen. Cruz and Rep. Diaz-Balart Introduce Bill to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as Terrorist Organization

On Wednesday, Sen. Cruz and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) introduced the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act, urging the Secretary of State to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization. The U.S. has officially listed individual members, branches, and charities of the Muslim Brotherhood as terrorists, but has not designated the organization as a whole. The Muslim Brotherhood poses a direct and severe threat to U.S. national security through radical jihadist attempts to eliminate and destroy America and its allies.

"This bill recognizes the simple fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamic terrorist group. For years, American presidents of both parties have correctly designated the Brotherhood’s various affiliates, such as Hamas and Ansar al-Sharia, as terrorist groups. Now we can reject the fantasy that their parent institution is a political entity that is somehow separate from these violent activities," Sen. Cruz said. "A number of our Muslim allies have taken this common-sense step, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE. As this bill details, the Brotherhood’s stated goal is to wage violent jihad against its enemies, and our legislation is a reality check that the United States is on that list as well."

Sen. Cruz Votes to Repeal Overreaching WOTUS Rule

On Wednesday, Sen. Cruz voted for Sen. Joni Ernst’s (R-Iowa) joint resolution, which he cosponsored with 48 of his colleagues. The measure, which passed 53-44, nullifies the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) and Army Corps of Engineers’ “Waters of the United States” rule, which massively expands the scope of federal authority over land and waterways in the United States. 

"I am pleased to join with my colleagues to rein in one aspect of the Obama Administration’s lawlessness. This Administration wages a war on jobs, making it more and more difficult for hardworking Americans to provide for their families. Today, we have sent a message to the President that enough is enough. The EPA’s new WOTUS rule is unconstitutional, plain and simple.  It is costly and tremendously harmful to families, farmers, and ranchers in Texas and across the country and would allow the federal government to determine what one can and cannot do with his or her own property," Sen. Cruz said.
