On Monday, during an appearance on “Hannity” of the Federal National Council, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) discussed the facility disaster in Texas due to the winter weather and Merrick Garland’s confirmation hearings are underway before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The Texas Republican warned that what happened in Texas could happen if he left it to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (Democrat from New York) because he said 25% of our electricity is wind power.
He said, “Now, we just got out of a very difficult week where the four million Texas electricity grid failed.” “And so, we need to do a serious examination of why this is, why the grid is failing. But one of the key elements of that is actually the policy that Schumer is pushing for the whole country, which is the Green New Deal. You look at Texas now, about 25 percent of our electricity. Is wind. However, in the midst of this storm, that capacity has fallen entirely to 2%. You want to talk about reliability. “
“The reality was, in the cold, the wind turbines were frozen, and the power generation was not there,” Cruz said. This needs to be fixed. Incidentally, this is the solution that Schumer is trying to impose on the entire country. Now, Democrats want to federalize power in Texas. “
He also dealt a blow to the media, describing their current situation as “suffering from Trump’s withdrawal.”
“I think the media is suffering from Trump’s withdrawal as they have attacked Trump every day for four years,” Cruz added. “They don’t know what they’re doing. So they’re obsessed with taking my girls ashore. I have to tell you, today, I asked Merrick Garland if he would open an investigation into Andrew Cuomo’s shameful policies. One of Como’s top aides admitted that they lied. They covered up the policies that sent out.” “People infected with the COVID virus have been brought to nursing homes, and it may have resulted in the deaths of thousands or tens of thousands. Merrick Garland will not be obligated to investigate. The media will not even cover that.”
