To say I’m disappointed would be an understatement. As someone who has viewed Senator Ted Cruz as one of the “good guys” on Capitol Hill, hearing him say the January 6 mostly peaceful protest was a “violent terrorist attack on the Capitol” feels like the worst type of betrayal. I know why he said it and I’ll explain below, but here’s the report of what he said according to American Greatness:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) shocked many conservatives on Wednesday when he echoed the left’s overwrought January 6 messaging during a Senate Rules Committee hearing, referring to the riot as a “violent terrorist attack on the Capitol,” and offering full-throated support for the Capitol Police, some of whose actions led to the deaths of multiple unarmed Trump supporters.  Cruz thanked the police for “defending” the U.S. Capitol and said those who assaulted law enforcement officers should be prosecuted.

“We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week,” Cruz said. “And it is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol where we saw the men and women law enforcement demonstrate incredible courage, incredible bravery, risk their lives to defend the men and women who serve in this Capitol.”

“My view is that anyone who commits an act of violence should be prosecuted,” Cruz said during Senate testimony from Capitol Police chief Wednesday. “And anyone who assaults a law enforcement officer should go to jail for a very long time. And I think that’s a principle that is true regardless of the politics of the violent criminal, whether they are right-wing, left-wing or they got no wings at all.”

Cruz asked Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger what could have been done differently to prevent the riot at the U.S. Capitol.

“As we reflect on what happened a year ago, it is also worth asking as we have as this committee has as this Congress has, I know you have—what could have been done differently? What could have prevented the breach of the Capitol, what could have prevented the riot getting as far as it did?”

Manger blamed the breach on “clearly documented intelligence failures” and “leadership failures with the Capitol Police Department.”

Now, let’s discuss WHY he said it. He’s running in 2024. I know he’s been a bit aloof about it, as he has to be this early in the game, but he’s running. He’ll be running if Donald Trump runs. He’ll be running if Ron DeSantis runs. He’ll be running if Mike Pence runs. And the only way he has any chance of defeating either of the two populists or the RINO is if he gets the power of the Republican Establishment behind him.

That means changing his various tunes to suit milquetoast Republicans with lots of money. It means distancing himself from Trump and the MAGA movement by siding with Democrats on the false January 6 “insurrection” narrative.

I don’t know this based on anything others have said. I know this because I’ve followed Cruz since before he was a 2016 presidential candidate. His decision-making is precise and his strategies are transparent, albeit brilliant at times. But perhaps more than anything else I know that this is all part of a 2024 strategy because the alternative is unfathomable. That alternative would be that he actually believes the protests and false-flag, Deep State-inspired entry into the Capitol on January 6, 2021 was a terrorist attack. If he thinks that, then everything I’ve ever thought about him before was based on lies.

Ted Cruz made statements about January 6 that were ludicrous prima facie. Saying it was a terrorist attack despite the mountains of evidence proving otherwise means that he’s gone to the dark side for the sake of political expediency.

New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help

They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.

Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.

The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).

To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.

The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.

As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.

Thank you and God Bless,
JD Rucker
