Ted Cruz says Nancy Pelosi is ‘drunk on power’

COVID-19 has given politicians unprecedented power. GOP Texas Sen. Ted Cruz thinks that’s gone to Democrats’ heads, especially House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Cruz charged Pelosi with being “drunk with power” after reinstituting mask mandates in Senate chambers, Breitbart reported. Pelosi had threatened to arrest staff and guests who didn’t comply and fine members of Congress for the offense. 

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts, absolutely,” Cruz said, quoting British historian Lord Acton. “Great men are almost exclusively bad men, even where they exercise influence and not authority.”

The Texas lawmaker said “those words were true in 1887, and they’re true today” in his remarks on the Senate floor Thursday. “Be one understand how power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Look no further than the other chamber in the United States Capitol. Speaker Nancy Pelosi is drunk on power,” Cruz said.

“The orders that Speaker Pelosi is issuing are abusive and unprecedented,” he continued about her mask mandate and accompanying penalties. “Who the hell is she to be fining members of the House?” Cruz asked later.

Cruz railed against what he called Pelosi’s “disrespect” for the U.S. Constitution, the lawmakers duly elected, and those who work at the Capitol for punishing the unmasked. “That is an absolute and complete abuse of power. She has no authority to disrespect the men and women who work here to threaten you with physical harm to threaten you with imprisonment,” he said.

“Pelosi is only doing this for political theater,” Cruz charged. He went onto point out that this reversal in mask policy has come after nearly everyone in Congress has done what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they were supposed to by getting vaccinated.

“Not too long ago, the CDC recognized what was obvious then it is obvious now. Vaccines work,” Cruz directed at President Joe Biden. “And if you’re vaccinated. You don’t need to wear a mask. The CDC issued that ruling, and I remember that day well,” he said.

However, the CDC recently reversed its recommendations to require even the vaccinated to wear masks in certain situations, a change that became Pelosi’s rationale. “What the CDC is doing, corrupting science with politics is wrong, and it’s time for the United States Senate in the United States House, to stand on the side of the American people to stand on the side of freedom,” Cruz said.

He went on to point out that it was the right of all Americans to “to go to work, to go to school, to go to church, to live your life. Free of Lord Acton’s abuse of absolute power.”

Cruz is right about our freedoms and about Pelosi. It’s time for the nation to get back to business and back to normal, and nobody should face arrest or fines for simply not wearing a mask.

After leaving my previous job 11 months ago, I’ve had some good luck to learn about this website which was a life-saver for me… They offer jobs for which people can work online from their house. My latest paycheck after working for them for 4 months was for $71600… Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet.

Just visit this website now……………. 𝗪­­𝘄­­𝘄.𝗣­­𝗮­­𝘆­­𝗯­­𝘂­­𝘇­­𝘇­­𝟭.𝗰­­𝗼­­𝗺

My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.
