Today, Senator Ted Cruz sent a letter to two major banks that are being bullied by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel over working with gun manufacturers. Senator Cruz invited the banks to move their business to Texas and urged Mayor Emanuel to keep his radical gun control north of the Red River.

Senator Cruz assured the banks that they would not be bullied in Texas.

    Senator Cruz great recommendation for other banks to avoid following orders given by Mafia Godfather Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Traitor in Chief false messiah.

  • Patty

    It is utter nonsense what Dead fish is ordering and threatening banks too no longer do business with gun owners? COURT WILL BE IN SESSION. TIME TO LAWYER UP AND ISN’T SOMETHING THESE DAYS, to be a lawyer. Obamacare, gun control, women in combat, Catholic Church, Coal industry, Farmers, lawsuits all over the place and more are coming down the pike.

    Lawyers dream and it is all thanks to Obama and the thuggery he is bestowed on this Nation.

    [Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Friday asked big banks
    to stop lending to gun makers as a way to pressure the
    industry to support tougher gun control laws.]

    The Problem Is Not Gun Laws’: Watch the Emotional Speech
    by a Sandy Hook Victim’s Dad That Got a Standing Ovation..

    [The grieving father, who ended up receiving a standing ovation, said
    that he believes in “simple, few gun laws” and that there are already
    “more than enough on the books.” Mattioli contends that “the problem
    is not gun laws” and that these regulations simply need to be enforced.

    I hope the next thing Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel do won’t be a hypocrite similar Traitor in Chief did to Illinois.

  • Highlander

    Who do these people think they are? The won an election … they didn’t become our masters. We need to keep tabs on which banks cave in to this pressure, and launch national boycotts on each and every one of them. Meanwhile, we need to start ramping up our efforts to make sure each and every one of these people are thrown out of office in the next election cycle. What they are doing runs contrary to every principle of freedom and democracy, and they are clearly enemies of America ….

    Highlander, while you’re oh so right, the sad fact is that for every one of us who are educated, informed, and aware of how our rights are being eroded at an alarming rate, there are probably 100 of THEM, the ignorant Honey Boo Boo’s, the so-called ‘low-information’ voters, the ones who have no inkling of what’s going on in this country aside from what Kim Kardashian is wearing and who the next Bachelor is. The sad fact of the matter is, there will be nobody thrown out of office for their unconstitutional actions, there will be nobody punished, ESPECIALLY not in Chicago, Illinois. Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer, but I realized with this past election that most of us are simply too ignorant and distracted to care, and nothing will ever change.

    Who do these people think they are? They won an election …

    Elected Stolen (twice)

    They think they own us because they do. America has had two corrupted election cycles. The 2008 nomination was stolen from Hillary. The 2012 election was stoled from Romney. And they think they’re our masters beacuse they’re getting away with it.

  • Mike

    Ted Cruz has become an overnight sensation. I hope he nevers loses this passion. Then again, I also hope too many blue staters don’t move to Texas and turn it purple. The last thing we need is a solid red state to go the way of Colorado, Virginia, Florida and Nevada.

    Bank of America is already pressuring gun stores by freezing their accounts for online sales.

  • Texascat

    Way to go Senator Ted Cruz. He is my new senator. Keep it up!!!!!

    Gun Ban Lobbyists and their funders. Traitor in Chief pushing The People closer to armed resistance.

  • RedBeard

    It’s about time that someone pushes back against thugs like Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel.

    Now, where the hell are the other Republicans? Cowering in the corner, weeping and begging the Obamedia to be nice to them, most likely.

  • RedBeard

    Re: Bank of America – this institution is grotesquely misnamed, being the greatest friend that illegal aliens could have. Hardly surprising that it would join with Emanuel and Obama on another un-American agenda.

  • walknot

    I wouldn’t do business right now with BoA no matter which state it HQ’ed. The sooner that bank cleans out its traitorous Board and Executive team, the sooner I will consider them for business.

  • MathMom

    Senator Ted Cruz is our gift to the Nation. Because we couldn’t give you Rick Perry.

  • OldSailor

    Wife and I stopped doing any business with BoA a couple of years ago because of their corporate policies and have been recommending to family and friends to do the same.

    Now we’re seeing some leadership! If just one big bank moves out of the Chicaho / Illinois “tax and budget hellhole”, it’d be a big moment!!
