    Mmm, Ted Cruz

    Mmm, Ted Cruz

    If we’ve learned anything from AOC, it’s that if your critics hate you, they just want to date you. The Babylon Bee apparently had the same thing in mind when they wrote about Senator Ted Cruz’s sexually frustrated critics in a now-viral satire story. In more serious news, the White House is forced to respond to Verdict from the briefing room podium, Democrats flip-flop hard on COVID, and the verdict is in for Elizabeth Holmes at the conclusion of a sensational trial. Plus, is a Verdict swimsuit calendar in the cards?

    Who Is Ray Epps?

    Who Is Ray Epps?

    With one simple question, Senator Ted Cruz sets the internet on fire—Who is Ray Epps? Now, the Senator joins Michael Knowles and Liz Wheeler to ponder the answer to this and several subsequent questions. What was the FBI’s involvement in January 6th? Why are they stonewalling the Republican’s inquiries? And because a hard day’s work is never done, Biden and his band of hooligans continue to fight against the Senator on Nord Stream 2 and the filibuster.

    After 48 years, will the United States see the end of a grievous error? Following the oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, our resident legal expert, Senator Ted Cruz, joins Michael Knowles and Liz Wheeler to discuss the fate of one of the worst decisions in Supreme Court history—Roe v.

    Senator Ted Cruz raises a glass with Michael Knowles and Liz Wheeler to ring in the new year and look back on the long, strange year that was 2021, an epilogue to the long, strange year that was 2020. Democrats tried to impeach Donald Trump for the second time, Britney Spears was freed from the confines of her conservatorship as Pope Fauci became the de facto conservator of all Americans, Joe Manchin shocked his own party when he said no to Build Back Broke, and… Michael became a bitcoin billionaire?! Happy New Year from Verdict with Ted Cruz!

    Build Back Broke Bombshell

    Build Back Broke Bombshell

    Biden, Schumer, and the Democrats were one vote away from passing Build Back Broke, and then it all went up in flames. Joe Manchin said no to his own party. As the man in the middle of it all, Senator Ted Cruz joins Michael Knowles and Liz Wheeler to give the inside scoop on what happened. And because one victory isn’t enough, at the midnight hour, the Senator scored a second major victory against Schumer—let’s just say some major consequences for Russia are on now the docket. Now, the question that remains: will Republicans also be able to score a victory on vaccine mandates in the winter of "severe illness and death?"

Best thing since joe rogan

Solid take on modern political phenomena from a erudite, conservative perspective. Would highly recommend for anyone interested in thoughtful dialogue in a world of podcasts often found wanting of true wit. Cruz and Knowles both have educations in law, so their critiques of nascent cases are clear and concise.

Awesome Show

A+ awesome show with tons of insider info.

Ted Says The Truth ,

Ted Says The Truth

He always says it the way it is, which is the way it should be. If some republican does something wrong he will not just defend them because they are republicans, that is what the democrats do. Jan 6th wasn't an insurrection but it still was and is a crime to riot unpeacefully. And Trump specifically said "we got to fight PEACEFULLY" so he had no part in the UNPEACEFUL Capitol Riot. But the way the rioters are being treated in jail is such a disgrace. But what can you expect from democrats that their known way of acting is "the end justifies the means" which is NOT AT ALL TRUE, "The end DOES NOT justify the means"!!!!!
