This is not good for our country.

Speaking on Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday (April 3), Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX.) said Americans are teetering on the cusp of losing “fundamental rights” because of Supreme Court decisions.

In his appearance on the show, Cruz told host Mark Levin, “Over and over again, the big landmark cases are 5-4,” adding that Americans are “one vote away on issue, after issue, after issue from losing our fundamental rights.”

He then elaborated on the type of issues he was talking about, referencing the District of Columbia v. Heller case, stating, “the landmark case upholding the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms” had been decided by a 5-4 margin.

Cruz also said that Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson would vote to reverse the Heller decision and added there was a “100 percent” chance Jackson would vote to overturn the death penalty.

Cruz was adamant that although some Senators were saying they don’t support abolishing the police, by voting “to confirm justices [who] will release violent criminals and endanger our communities, then you are supporting abolishing the police.”

The Texas Senator added that these Senators were also “repealing the Second Amendment, and taking away our free speech rights, and taking away our religious liberty rights,” and stated that they are “supporting that kind of radical agenda.”

Levin then called Jackson “totally unpredictable,” saying she is “the hard Left of the judiciary in this country.”

The Fox News host added that even “so-called ‘moderates'” like Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) endorsed Jackson and that a “couple of Republican senators are on the fence,” adding that Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine had already supported her nomination.

Levin concluded that Senators’ support of an “extremist” like Jackson gave the public “a right to conclude” that these Senators are “weak on the very same subjects” as Jackson.
