WATCH: Ted Cruz Seriously Entertains the Prospect of Texas Seceding From the Union, Floats Joe Rogan as President

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was recently asked about the prospect of secession and didn’t completely slam the door on the idea.

In newly circulating comments initially made last month during a live taping of the senator’s podcast on the campus of Texas A&M, Cruz fielded a question from an audience member about the possibility of Texas seceding from the union.

“I understand the sentiment behind the question,” Cruz said. “I’m not there yet.”

The senator added, “I think Texas has a responsibility to the country. And I’m not ready to give up on America. I love this country … Texas is, right now, an amazing force keeping America from going off the cliff. Keeping America grounded on the values that built this country.”

Those comments received applause. However, Cruz then outlined a chain of events that would get him on board for secession.

“Now listen, if the Democrats end the filibuster if they fundamentally destroy the country if they pack the Supreme Court if they make DC a state, if they federalize elections and massively expand voter fraud, there may come a point where it’s hopeless. We’re not there yet.

“And if there comes a point where it’s hopeless, then I think we take NASA, we take the military, we take the oil,” he added, tongue-in-cheek.

Conservative talk show host Liz Wheeler, a guest on the podcast, asked the senator about the fate of one notable Texan in a proposed split from the United States.

“What about Joe Rogan?” Wheeler asked. “You gonna take him?”

“Joe Rogan?! He might be the president of Texas!” Cruz said.

The prospect of Texas seceding from the union has gained traction among Republicans in the Lone Star state over the past year. A number of prominent conservatives in media have given the idea strong consideration or outright endorsed it. And secession has gained public support. One poll earlier this year found that two out of three Republicans in the South are in favor.

Salvation Army: White donors need to offer ‘Sincere Apology’ for their Racism

The Salvation Army wants its white donors to give it more than just money this Christmas season.

Its leadership is also demanding they apologize for being racist.

It’s part of a push by the Christian charitable organization to embrace the ideas of Black Lives Matter, and “dismantle white privilege” and “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”

The Salvation Army’s Alexandria-based leadership has created an “International Social Justice Commission” which has developed and released a “resource” to educate its white donors, volunteers and employees called Let’s Talk about Racism.

It asserts Christianity is institutionally racist, calling for white Christians to repent and offer “a sincere apology” to blacks for being “antagonistic.. to black people and the values of the black community.”

“Many have come to believe that we live in a post-racial society, but racism is very real for our brothers and sisters who are refused jobs and housing, denied basic rights and brutalized and oppressed simply because of the color of their skin,” one lesson explains. “There is an urgent need for Christians to evaluate racist attitudes and practices in light of our faith, and to live faithfully in today’s world.”

In an accompanying Study Guide on Racism, Salvation Army authors explain that all whites are racist, even if they don’t realize it. “The subtle nature of racism is such that people who are not consciously racist easily function with the privileges, empowerment and benefits of the dominant ethnicity, thus unintentionally perpetuating injustice,” it says.
