Sen. Ted Cruz electrified the crowd at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Fla., telling Friday’s attendees something they loved to hear: A “red wave is coming” in the November midterms.

The Texas Republican made his prediction as a pair of new surveys found that President Joe Biden’s approval ratings have sunk even further.

After suggesting that “the fundamental conflict” in our country today “is a battle between power and liberty,” he then took aim at big government, the politics of fear, and ‘wokeness.’

He noted:

We find ourselves at an existential moment for our nation. The threats in our country have never been greater…What is this battle all about? What are we fighting about in this nation? And I’m going to suggest the fundamental conflict that is playing out across this great nation is a battle between power and liberty; the two are in fundamental conflict.

We find ourselves at an existential moment for our nation. The threats in our country have never been greater…What is this battle all about? What are we fighting about in this nation? And I’m going to suggest the fundamental conflict that is playing out across this great nation is a battle between power and liberty; the two are in fundamental conflict,” he said.

“We are seeing it every day:  vaccine mandates vs. doctors and nurses, mask mandates vs. kids in school, Spotify vs. Joe Rogan, GoFundMe vs. Canadian truckers… Justin Trudeau vs. and the God-fearing Canadian truckers, The New York Times vs. Bari Weiss, Levi’s vs. Jennifer Sey, AOC vs. damn-near anyone who ever dared to criticize her.

“This is not a battle between the weak and the strong,” Cruz observed. “Joe Rogan is many things, but he ain’t weak. Major League Baseball, which went after the voters of Georgia… The Georgia voters are many things, but they ain’t weak. The Biden Department of Justice when they went after parents. Parents are many things, but they ain’t weak.”

“What is playing out is the powerful are afraid. They’re terrified of you. They look out at the men and women [at CPAC] and you scare the living crap out of them. They are afraid of truth. They are afraid of liberty.”

Going on, Cruz also attacked out-of-control institutions.

“Big is bad…across the board. Big government sucks. Big business sucks. Big Tech, Big Hollywood, Big universities… Any accumulation of power that is centralized is fundamentally dangerous for individual liberty,” he said.

PJ Media added more context to additional Cruz remarks:

Just like Communists, the left wants centralized power, so “how do we ensure freedom,” then? Thankfully over two hundred years ago James Madison told us how in Federalist 10 when he wrote about factions or special interests. Madison said if factions are able to seize control of the government they will strip away our freedom.

That’s “one of the reasons I’m so bullish on crypto, on bitcoin is because it’s decentralized and not controllable,” said Cruz. As an example, he related the story of Justin Trudeau trying to seize the assets of the Canadian truck protestors.

“Change is coming. It is powerful,” Cruz noted as he was concluding his speech.

“You want to know how powerful? Find one person on planet earth who doesn’t know what ‘Let’s go, Brandon’ means.” In Jan. 2023, a red wave is coming. “We are taking our country back, we are standing up to power, we are defending liberty, we are defending the Constitution, we are defending the Bill of Rights, and together we will save this great nation!” he said.

A number of leading conservatives have gathered again at CPAC this year, but also, former Democratic presidential contender and Hawai’i congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard spoke at the event on Friday.
