Ted Cruz… I work for 26 million Texans, Receives standing ovations and thank you rallies throughout Texas and a death threat

Ted Cruz is living in quite the dual world these days… including coming home to standing ovations…

While a Daily Beast contributor, Dean Obeidallah, tweeted about Ted Cruz and John McCain fighting in an old-fashioned duel, Cruz received an actual threat via twitter as well.

Law enforcement officials are investigating a threat against Cruz by a person posting on Twitter as Troy Gilmore Jr.:

“Take down Ted Cruz, at his home” and listed Cruz’s home address in Houston…

The author of the threat uses the Twitter handle @ArmyVet54 and identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Army and Navy…

“What goes around comes around CRUZ!!” the person wrote.

At about 5:30 pm on Friday, @ArmyVet54 posted another apparent threat, urging that Cruz “needs to be taught a street wise lesson”.

The person posted Cruz’s home address several other times this month and repeatedly used threatening language.

“Anyone else hoping Ted Cruz and John McCain settle their feud in an Aaron Burr-Alexander Hamilton style duel? I’d be rooting for John McCain,” Dean Obeidallah tweeted.

Meanwhile in San Antonio, Cruz returned home to a rousing Texas welcome on Saturday after his attempt to derail Obamacare with a shutdown of the federal government. The standing ovation for Ted lasted for eight minutes.

“After two months in Washington, it’s great to be back in America,” Cruz joked in speaking to a crowd of about 750 people in a packed downtown San Antonio hotel ballroom… 8-Minute Standing Ovation:

Then on on October 22nd, 2013, Sen. Cruz visited Arlington, Texas, speaking at an event organized by several DFW-area grassroots organizations including, the Lone Star Tea Party (Arlington). Here is video of the record 13 minute standing ovation.

The crowd was insanely loud!

Funny, or maybe not so funny, how ‘Democrats’ in both the House and the Senate are now demanding a ‘1-year’ delay in the rollout of the ObamaCare trainwreck, exactly what Ted Cruz and the so-called ‘crazy Tea Party’ Republicans were asking for during the shutdown, who were called every name in the book by the liberal media and their Democrat counterparts… but now the Dems are sensible?!?  Hmmm??

The Tea Party and the Mad Hatter

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
