Skip to comments.How Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn busted Ted Cruz’s Obamacare bubble (Playing politics)
Posted on 09/24/2013 9:09:58 AM PDT by yoe
The top two Republicans in the Senate made clear Monday they will not join Cruzs call for a filibuster of a government funding bill that cleared the House last week. Their decisions signaled that the fiery freshmans plan isnt good politics even for Republicans facing conservative primary threats and reinforced a widely held view that it wont work in practice.

You, my friend, are right on target!!! Please help us to get as many good American folks as possible...from all walks of life.....to sign & endorse the Lee/Cruz Petition to defund Obamacare...right now!!! Action is needed by millions of Americans, immediately!!! Senator MCconnell and John Cornyn are nught but Obamabots dressed in RINO uniforms!!! Throw them out of office, traitors that they are!!
(WWW.DONTFUNDOBAMACARE.COM) SIGN & ENDORSE....TODAY!!!
I’ve already written to corncob and told him I will actively support anyone who runs against him. For a Texan to turn on a Texan is a sign that John boy needs to be primaried and done away with. He represents the establishment, not for what is good for the people.
CR is not passed into law yet.
In case anyone is wondering why Obama is President, you can look to a-holes like McConnell and Cornyn , Graham and McCain, and other RINO’s who selected Romneycare Romney and then left Romney on his own.
Not pone of them really backed Romney, he was on his own and then he just dropped the ball after the first debate.
McConnell and Cornyn need to be removed in this election. If not in the primary, stay home in the general. Enough of the defeatist leadership.
CITIZENS OF THE REPUBLIC IT IS TIME TO DO A RECALL
Those born 20 years ago have never seen this film clip.Of the four passenger helicopter already overloaded with eight just barely lifting off its roof top heli-pad. Attached to its steel tube runner type landing gear below the fuselage were about a dozen more desperate people clinging to the gear . As the craft struggles to get airborne. it lurches skyward as one of those clinging to the steel tubes used as landing gear lets go. Falling to a death some 35 feet down to the refugee crowded lamding pad atop the Saigon American Embassy roof..
They were fleeing South Viet Nam because American support was withdrawn and denied .leaving its army running out of ammo and conviction. Sold out by an American congress controled ironically by Democrats that.decided to shed its support for a democratic form of government to what became a US ward for a socialist/communist replacement . It was a harbinger of what that political party will bring to the US 50 years later.
Because of Obamacare most recalling of defunding\ governemnt shutdowns simply goes back to Gingrichs time when he was Speaker. This earlier defunding/ government shutdown had profound implications where hundreds of thousands died because of it. Like the constitutional constrains on central government. That abandonment of Viet Nam is hardly if ever mentioned or discussed in classrooms despite American humiliation could be demonstrated in that film clip described in this articles lead paragraph.. Because it was created by the Democrat party responding to the socialist/communist radicals that had taken over the liberal arts eduicational industry and were slowly taking that party over as well..
Not only did we lose a war because of it. But those same university socialist educators which encouraged this defunding , and dis-honoring the of the 58,000 deaths of our military. Also encouraged their charges to use humiliation such as calling retuning servicemen baby killers (only later to kill their own) and spitting in their faces. Their educational products are now on their own, borrowing a military term, R&R . Running and Ruining destroying this country . For this time the same group are now in control of that political party.
Changing it so much that in their 2012 convention booed any reference to “The Creator” ,God.. Demonstrating that any connection to the political party of JFK is gone. They are Democrat in name only and really Demo-Coms.. A term their present political opposition would choke on repeating . For the Republicans are.unable even to use the milder epithet “socialist”. The DCs are now demanding funding for a cherished socialist concept replete with 2000 pages of controls for the health collective. Controls which includes newly created bureaucracies for enforcement some under the direct control of the President .
Controls that:; Put thousands out of a 40 work week and reduced them to part time employees, Shut down physician hospitals, confiscated union health plans. prohibited private contracts with individual doctors, replaced medical specialists with socialist bureaucrats (death panels) Shut down medical insurance companies, or doubled the cost of health plans for starters...Yet not a word of this will be mentioned.by the complicit media apararatzicks running major visual media outlets.
For there is another example of the damage the aparatzicks did and will continue to do until challanged. Expect a continuing of the racism charge. OK ! Let’s see who started that ? It really began with the President of The United States implying an attacker was a “victim”. of a security guard doing his job when shot and killed by the guard defending himself..There seems to be a number of socialist agendas cited as Obama’s reasoning for doing this. One of which is living in collectives. However on Obama’s cue the propaganda arm swung into action with drastic results..
The guard a big Obama supporter was an “hispanic” who is part black with a last name which is jewish” .Whos doing surveilance in a posted private mixed race area of modest means experiencing robberies and burgalries by young blacks. Being such it’s legal to question anyone of blue, red, green,white, or black complexion as to their purpose being there. In this security guard situation he discontinued a surveilance after being suggested to do so by the police.The guard could have legally questioned the person under surveilance but instead allowed him to continue on his way uncontested. Only to have that person under surveilance as the guard was returning to his vehicle. knock the guard to the ground start beating his head against the sidewalk and wind up getting killed over a struggle the guards gun
Now consider all those congressional investigations going on. If somebody even suggests impeachment. Get to your black base voters, whom youve done nothing for, all worked up.
Pick on some security guard whos doing his job and make him expendable. Time to employ propaganda devices. Emphasize that white jews last name! . Call that surveilance stalking!, The area hes patrolling “public access” area not gated owned by rich whitieys,never mention the guard is part african and dark skinned.. Depict that person hes watching a 10 year old black kid (show picture) a victim and a saint. Not a six foot 160 pound 16 year old, who was killed in cold blood and not who was killed fighting over a gun..The episode was given the full hyperbolic treatment which lasted for months and the results are clear..
Since this barrage of propaganda black youths have been using these devices as their excuse even citing the “victims” first name Innocent whites, hispanics and asiains being murdered because of the inflamatory rhetoric composed of lies and missconceptions being driven by the regime and its supporters in the media begun by the President of the United States.. Obama never disassociated himself from it, nor discouraged it.and the reasoning behind it ?
Well, by painting a target on that security guards back he has geared up his black base .Aint that neat ? What better way to discourage any investigation into malfeasance and corruption by organizing the base for riots in the streets ? Think its too far fetched ? Think its not working ? Look again http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3051558/posts
To date the political opposition known as Republican has yet to mention or comment on these examples of how this regime operates. Time to demand that they behave like political opposition or leave the rostrum !
Now is the time not to ask but demand...
I perceive Cruz to be a pretty smart cookie. I believe that when he takes a political course of action, he is a bit like a chess master working out the likely “best case / worst case” scenarios if he makes a particular move and chooses a particular battle. I also believe he has heard the phrase, “choose your battles”.
In that context, I find it interesting, and kinda exciting, that he chose this one.
Oh, and McConnell is my senator. For now.
What kind of payoffs are McConnell and Cornyn getting form the antiCHRIST 0bama?
I don't know when these clowns have to run again, but I've heard that "paybacks are a bitch"!
McConnell/Cornyn. What is different in them from any socialist/Marxist/Democrat on this vote and the outcome?
Cornyn IS NOT SUBJECTED TO Obamacare, but subjects us to it. Tyrants do that.
It’s clear to me that Boehner should be defeated, preferably in a primary but by voting for the Democrat if necessary.
Voting for a Democrat in KY for a six-year term is a harder sell. Hope you can chase him before November.
Thankfully Cruz is my Senator. Corncob I think is up for re-election, so I guess if he gets an opponant, he/she will get some of my money
Gotta look into the backgrounds.
We need to find out who their chiefs of staff are and what their games are.
Voting for a Democrat in KY for a six-year term is a harder sell. Hope you can chase him before November.
IMO grass roots on all sides needs to go after both the Dem and Repub candidates in the primaries.
I find it hard to believe that even American Democrats in many cases are not sick of this giant government and soft dictatorship.
There are conservatives in both parties and IMO there needs to be hard pushes everywhere to remove the turds with real people who truly what the best for our country in practical ways with no affiliation to the Washington establishment or big government unions.
“How Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn busted Ted Cruzs Obamacare bubble (Playing politics)”
How Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn busted Republican Voter’s bubble that the party has a spine.(Being themselves)
GOP -> RIP
No, that's wrong. Their decisions signaled they don't realize the arguments have changed, and they're on the way to extinction. 2014 may end up being a pretty bad year for Republicans, and that failure is going to lead to a whole bunch of rolling heads. Let's hope the bloodletting is over in time for 2016, but I'm not hopeful.
if he gets an opponant, he/she will get some of my money...”
Someone named Dwayne Stovall is running against Cornyn. Don’t know much about him yet other than his link on the internet. Might want to check him out. There’s also a Get Rid of Cornyn Texas Ping on FR you might want to look into.
The voters are going to bust the bubble of all these examples of human excrement in 2014, ya think?
Call these examples of political human waste at:
What is Mark Levin saying about this?
McConnell and Cornyn have only exposed themselves as collaborators with the Democrats. They should switch parties now and save us the trouble of voting them out in the next primary.
Romney is another McCain, Graham, McConnell and Cornyn
otherwise your post was accurate
Tom DeLay: please pick up the red courtesy phone ...
At least Boehner got the house to act, and they passed the CR defunding Obamacare. I don’t like Boehner either, but at least he did right here.
I’d like to know why there is anything language for Harry Reid to Strike out of the House Bill in the first place. If the House Bill doesn’t include funding for Obamacare, wouldn’t Reid need to add language to fund Obamacare? What did stupid Boehner write in the Bill, “This $1 billion dollars of this budget will not go to Obamacare”?
From what I have heard, he did it by attaching a separate provision defunding Obamacare, rather than just not including funding for it in the bill. As a result, Harry Reid can remove it with 51 votes. Very sneaky. That is why Cruz is going through the fight to force it to be removed with 60 votes. So I don’t think Boehner has been converted, this is just another one of those phony votes against Obamacare. It won’t be real until the House says no to what comes back from the Senate, and lets the government shut down.
When are we ever going to go back to regular order in Congress?
Cruz will be in the senate long after McConnell and Cornyn are gone!
Primary McConnell now.
“From what I have heard, he did it by attaching a separate provision defunding Obamacare, rather than just not including funding for it in the bill. As a result, Harry Reid can remove it with 51 votes. “
No, Boehner and Cantor were going to do something like that and they got stopped.
In the Senate any bill can be changed after a cloture vote by a 51 vote majority if a “striking” amendment is pending.
And that’s exactly what Mitch and group are letting Harry do despite Cruz’s campaign.
As for Boehner he probably is all in on the Senate plan to send it back to him with Obamacare and have it passed there by RINO and Dem votes- like usual.
But hope springs eternal...
For us to re-invent the Rep party will take years and a consistent effort, I just don’t think we have the will or the numbers.
Thanks for the info. I’ll look into it
I don’t know. It’s a possibility here in Texas. John boy Corncob must thinbk he has a strong hold on the moderate and liberal Rep sections to get re-elected. Since he turned on Cruz, he may have a deal worked out with the f’n Dems.
Even though he had all his “crimes” tossed out, I think the meida has rendered him unelectable. But I sure as hell would vote for the Hammer, he has the guts to do what needs to be done.
Cornyn has to go! We need another Ted Cruz in that seat!
I will definitely be voting for Cornyn's primary challenger. If Cornyn gets the nomination, I will not be voting for him in the general.
Fact is... Cruz exposed many GOP as ObamaCare supporters....Cruz wins...
That’s interesting, I hadn’t heard that.
I really think the only thing that MIGHT help is a march on the capital. In fact, a few million cars in a caravan heading toward Washington just might scare the hell out of them. I’m sure the military would stop the people from entering the city but the rinos would know they can’t be shielded from the voters forever and every car represents thousands of votes..
The democrats are marshalling all their formidable forces to Palinize Cruz. Their mastery of the politics of personal destruction is legendary and lethal. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy...
Sen Cruz on Senate floor LIVE, Now!!
