Ted Cruz Voted AGAINST Confirming John Kerry in 2013; His Reason Why Now Sounds Prophetic

Ted Cruz John Kerry

For America’s useful idiots and dupes who hadn’t realized that John F. Kerry was a traitor in the 1970’s, and has continued to be an America-hater ever since, we saw further evidence on Wednesday when the Obama secretary of state went on an over hour-long rant against the only Jewish state in the world, the only democracy in the Middle East, and the only true ally of the United States in the area — Israel.

While Republicans maybe couldn’t have ultimately stopped John Kerry’s Senate confirmation in 2013, they could have at least tried, or at minimum made a statement that would have delegitimatized his selection to some degree. However, as Republicans are seemingly predesposed to do, they refused to put up any fight whatsoever and Kerry sailed through the chamber on a 94-3 vote.

“I don’t know too many people who have oriented their whole life to be better suited for secretary of state,” RINO GOP Senator Bob Corker (TN) shamefully said on the Senate floor before the January 29, 2013, vote.

The only three Republican senators to vote against anti-American John Kerry were Ted Cruz (TX), James Inhofe (OK) and John Cornyn (TX), in his bid to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. Obama snookered Republicans (imagine that) by slipping Kerry through instead of Susan Rice, who the GOP saw as being even worse than Kerry, if that is even possible.

“I was compelled to vote no on Senator Kerry’s nomination because of his longstanding less-than-vigorous defense of U.S. national security issues and, in particular, his long record of supporting treaties and international tribunals that have undermined U.S. sovereignty,” Ted Cruz said in explaining his “no” vote at the time, a statement that now sounds prophetic given how John Kerry has done just that — undermined American sovereignty at every turn and as he illustrated on Wednesday, is also against America’s number one ally, Israel.

Ted Cruz should take a bow following John Kerry’s pro-Hamas speech on Wednesday.

For his part, so should Senator Inhofe who was concerned, and rightfully so, about Kerry’s belief in the phony pagan religion of global warming.

“We joke around a lot,” Inhofe told the Washington Post following his “no” vote against confirming Kerry. “But I told him I never agreed with him on anything, going all the way back to the Sandinistas.”

Inhofe told the Post that Kerry appears to make global warming a centerpiece issue and that he’s been too deferential to global organizations like the United Nations.

A spokesman for Senator John Cornyn said that his “no” vote was cast against Kerry’s confirmation because of his “long history of liberal positions that are not consistent with a majority of Texans.”

Those who voted for John Kerry’s confirmation in 2013, should be hanging their heads in shame, and more senators should have listened to Ted Cruz’s warning at the time.

With the world in turmoil and Iran on the verge of getting nuclear capabilities, funded largely by U.S. taxpayers thanks largely to the treasonous actions of John Kerry and Barack Obama, the world and the United States would have been in a much better place.
