1. This letter really pisses me off

This is from @tedcruz and 11 other Senators to #Trump Nov 2018 urging Trump 2 get the #USMCA in their hands by 11/30/18 so the lame duck Republican Congress could approve the USMCA before the Dems got the House 1/1/19

2. Had the Republicans gotten the USMCA approved by 12/31/18 we would already be under the USMCA

The REASON it pisses me off is because it is Ted Cruz specifically.


But it is being called a Congressional Executive Agreement
3. A TREATY requires 2/3 approval of the Senate as per the #Constitution

There is NO SUCH THING as a Congressional Executive Agreement in the Constitution

Congress made that up - and it only requires simple majority of House + Senate to approve
4. Now take THAT knowledge with the essay written by @tedcruz in 2014 (slide 1 below)

Ted speaks about the importance of TREATIES and how a TREATY can undermine the #Constitution by including foreign Treaties inside it & these then become law of the land

5. Trump met Trudeau in Argentina at the end of November to get it signed by 11/30/18 (fortunately Congress could not ratify by 12/31/18), then the Dems gained the House and the USMCA got pushed back

6. In order for the #USMCA to officially be handed to Congress, according to the #Unconstitutional FAST TRACK treaty rules, Congress needs to see the Agreement 60 days ahead of time...

The ENTIRETY of the USMCA was made available for Congress to read October 1, 2018
7. This means that @tedcruz knew EVERY DETAIL OF THE #USMCA when he signed that letter to #Trump in mid November 2018

Ted knew that the USMCA has gazillions of foreign Treaties / Agreements inside it that would represent SOVEREIGNTY LOST
8. Again, please read the essay @tedcruz penned for the Harvard Law Review 2014 on Treaties - included in this string earlier and again here 👇

It’s beautiful actually

9. In that essay @tedcruz wrote THIS:

“Because TREATIES ARE THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND, they could potentially become a vehicle for the federal government either 2 give away power 2 international actors or to accumulate power otherwise reserved for the states or individuals.”
10. @tedcruz wrote THAT


By October 1, 2018 he knew EVERY DETAIL of the #USMCA

And he STILL pushed Trump to get the USMCA submitted by 11/30/18 so the Republican Congress could try to ratify it (Unconstitutionally by the way) by 12/31/18 (this failed thankfully)
11. Please recall that @tedcruz wife, Heidi Cruz was a member of the #CouncilOnForeignRelations - CFR

12. Recall that the CFR (Lighthizer) is the AUTHOR of the #USMCA

The CFR has been working on this USMCA for YEARS - previously called “Building a North American Community”

Please note that Heidi Cruz, while working at the CFR, was a member of the Task Force that WROTE IT
13. What we see through this is that @tedcruz represents #Globalism

Ted is the CLASSIC #RINO

Ted is a member of the Congressional #UNIPARTY

IMO, #Constitution - loving Americans should NEVER cast a vote for Ted for Presidency OR Senate again

He has shown his true colors
14. From here out I will provide other links to examples of the #USMCA representing #globalism and how the USA becomes tied to the #UN through this monstrosity

16. The #USMCA and #EndTheFed?


Read on -> it’s worse .... An even BIGGER dose of #Globalism

I thought Trump said this time is for Patriots, not #Globalists

What’s up?

17. Good stuff from Constitutional scholar @PubliusHuldah in this one 👇

So for the potty mouth

Little frustrated at the time

18. If the #USMCA represents the complete IMMIGRATION FAILURE that many predict....

What do you think the #Republican Party will look like by 2024?

19. Of course

The NATURAL question is “@realDonaldTrump , WTF is up with you and the #USMCA?”

What could be his strategy here?

We’ve GOT to figure this out...

This is crucial

I sure hope it’s not option G
