CRUZADE: DEFUNDING EFFORT NEARING 30 VOTES IN SENATE

Mike Flynn

According to sources on the Hill, there is growing support among Senate Republicans to support Sens. Cruz and Lee's efforts to scuttle Sen. Harry Reid's attempt to reinstate ObamaCare funding in the House Continuing Resolution...

According to Hill sources, over 20 GOP Senators are set to buck Leadership on Friday and reject this procedural game, by voting against cloture. By some accounts, up to 30 Senators could vote against GOP Leadership, which would represent an existential crisis within the caucus. McConnell and Cornyn have publicly put their reputations on the line. If more than half the caucus votes against them, the center of power within the Senate Republicans will have shifted. ...........

I’m assuming this latest list is accurate, which shows what position the Senators are leaning.

http://www.dontfundobamacare.com/

Be weary of those Senators that try to vote against Cloture not because they stand with Cruz, but to save their hide if it becomes apparent that their vote isn’t needed to give Harry Reid what he wants, allowing them political cover.(i.e. Jeff Flake, if this information is correct)

I’m for a Miracle on 34th Street type moment for Cruz’s efforts. Keep up the efforts. We need to get as many people in as many states as we can to keep contacting Senators. I’m pretty sure I’m near the 80+ mark. I even sent Barbara Boxer and Diane Frankenstein one. I know they’re going straight to the Trash bin because the don’t care what real Americans think; only their liberal gay and Muzzie friends but at least I did my part.

I think after this bout of bad government gone wild I think we need to make some amendments for senators and all other congressman that they cannot pass legislation that they are exempt from, that they must live homeless for a period of 3 months and do 3 months of community service so they can develop compassion for their fellow man before they can even be considered for public office, and new provisions for term limits based upon performance. Time to put the evil ones on the streets. No more of this nonsense. We’ve been way too tolerant and this is where its gotten us.

We probably won’t get 41 if McConnell and Cornyn don’t weasal out, because all they need is McCain, Graham, Collins, Corker, and Alexander, and probably also have Murkowski. Hatch just got back so he has nothing to worry about, but everyone else might be released to vote against cloture for political cover (i.e. Coburn, Chambliss, Ikkason, etc).

The good news, however, is if this gets to 30+ Senators, that should be enough to put pressure on the House Leadership and strengthen the Tea Party conservatives there from backing down when they get the crap bill back from Reid. That’s info for Gohmert to use.

There will be just enough RINO votes (by the RINOs who need to be voted back into office sooner) to say “see we tried to stop OCare” but not quite enough to actually stop it. They’re playing games with us.

However, leaving a message is good, too.

You can tweet these guys all at once. Someone posted this on Twitter:

Yeah, there’s still hope.

I think a lot of what pisses the GOP-e off is the fact they get angry that their voting constituents (us) are smarter and more well informed that the Democratic counterparts. I mean, if you’re a lib, all you gotta do is have a (D) next to your name and as long as you kiss enough media butt, your liberal supporters will come out and pull the lever, no matter what you do because if the media hides it, they don’t know any better.

Our guys on the other hand, should know better. They pull that crap (i.e. Amnesty reform, etc) and we light up the phone lines and make use of the primary system. Experience doing this has taught us some of those “complex” procedural rules Congress tries to pull on us to make us look like we don’t know what’s going on. We don’t give our RINOs cover like the Libs give their Blue Dogs. Look at Manchin, Landrieu, and Pryor. If Reid has the votes, it would not surprise me for Reid to give permission for them to oppose cloture, and all will be forgiven by their constituents because at the heart of every Democrat, the most important thing above anything else is winning and the “understanding” that they come from Red States where Dems wouldn’t normally have a prayer, and that anything with a (D) is preferable to an (R).

We, on the other hand, hold our people accountable and have long memories. I think the GOP-e really wishes we were just as stupid or ignorant and let them be.

Thank goodness for Ted Cruz. For the first time in a long time, we have a leader in Washington trying to fight for liberty. I’m still shocked he and Lee have had to almost single-handedly fight this alone. This isn’t rocket science what their doing.

November 2014: DeRINO Congress


Expect a senate RSC to try to save their RATS, like Murkowski vs. Miller in 2010. They protect their own hides first.

interestingly Dingy Harry tried to push a vote on cloture at 8pm tonight...why the big hurry I wonder? perhaps numbers getting a bit too close for comfort? Perhaps asked to do this by republican leadership to avoid embarrassment tomorrow?

Regardless Sen Lee objected and the vote will be held during daylight hours for all the world to see...bring it on!
