Exclusive–Source: McConnell, Cornyn
Whipping Votes Against Ted Cruz

Breitbart News, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

A source in Congress tells Breitbart News that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn are using their leadership positions to pressure other Republicans to oppose Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his campaign to defund Obamacare. "Right now in the Senate, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are actively whipping Senators to shut down debate on the House continuing resolution so that Harry Reid can gut it with just

I just sent this email to my Senator Cornyn.

The Senate and Congress has a golden opportunity to KILL obamacare. Do it! This ridiculous bill must be eliminated. It seriously hurts normal Americans and will cost each of our families over $7,000 more each year. We cannot afford it.

Help Senator Ted Cruz kill this ill-conceived democrat program!

Ok, I´ll say it. The only winner in this entire debacle will be Senator Ted Cruz, because he never had anything to lose but had everything to gain by enhancing his national image as a "fighter". He played the House for patsies. Now, he´s presented this Rube Goldberg plan for blocking the very bill he said he wanted from the House. McConnell and Cornyn are declining to act as the stooges in Cruz´s phony magic act.

This is what Cornyn tried to do to Marco Rubio in 2010. Cornyn was the head of the Senate Committee to elect more Republicans and he gave Charley Crist (now a Democrat) $100,000 to defeat the conservative Rubio. As we know Rubio won against all odds in his own party.

Cornyn, McCain, Graham, and McConnell do not like Conservatives who upset their cozy club in the Senate. If you disagree, tell me one winning strategy these six RINOs have employed in the last five years. Please?

I have never contributed to a campaign outside my own state but I will contribute to a primary challenge to McConnell. He is the weakest man I have ever seen.

We are being set up by our own party leaders. I have no idea why unless it´s the $200k and perks they get by going along. That´s what whores do.

The establishment GOP strikes again. When do we pull out the sign that says "SUCKER" and hold it over our heads. It was a juke job since Obamacare first passed and these clowns cried "Repeal"...and very quickly morphed into "saving the good parts." Those are exactly what make Obamacare unpalatable in the first place.

Well #5, the American people have something to gain as well, or is that not important? The fact that McConnell and Cornyn are working against Cruz´s efforts means they are working against all of us.

I know some people here are big supporters of McConnell, and claim his primary opponent is less than "perfect", but he no longer deserves to be a leader in the Senate, or the GOP. He is so September 10th.

No, this does not mean those who decline to support Cruz´s tactics are "against all of us". "All of us" are not behind what Cruz claims he is trying to do. If I believed Cruz was working for anyone but himself, I would trust him more.

And, Cruz will be elected again in little over 5 years should he choose to run and most likely if it is for higher office, will attain same.

Obamacare was passed in the dead of night, not read by anyone, and by skirting the rules of both the House and Senate. What´s wrong with giving the liberals a taste of their own medicine and using any procedural abracadabra to get rid of this POS legislation?

McConnell and Cornyn are fossils supporting the status quo in Washington. Has McConnell ever stood for anything? He rolls on his back to let Harry Reid scratch his belly.

I read this story with a jaundiced eye.

I will be amazed to eventually know for sure that McConnell is behind this folly because that would rally most conservatives in the country against him in his primary and maybe even his general election.

Is this story a ´plant´ to do just that?

FWIW: I´m voting against my GOP senator in both her primary, and if needed, in her general election because of her partnering with McPain and Miss Graham!

It is my opinion that all the vitriol, both from RINOs and some L.dot posters, against Cruz is designed to stop him from being the prime contender in 2016.

They have a small/select list of desirables and they know that Cruz would wipe the floor with any one of them in the debates.

Same fundamental reason they, and again some L.dot posters, show such vitriol towards Gov. Palin.

I believe the 2016 elections are the underlying force behind Cruz´s actions and I strongly support him in that effort!

BTW: He is doing exactly what he campaigned on in 2012.

Even if Cruz is defeated now, he will come out above the fray.

If successful, he will be ´THE MAN´!

Fight the Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Commie/Fascists, and RINOs, at every turn. Don´t give those POSs a single inch without a fight. Make every issue a national issue that dominates several news cycles.

As W. S. Churchill said: “Never give up. Never give up. Never give up”.

Every top GOP leader should be defeated in either their primary or general election. I believe the net difference in numbers would still be positive.

A strongly conservative house would hamstring Obama and Reid.

The ´Cruz Revolution´ has started and it will eventually challenge the ´Reagan Revolution´ in stature and effect!

What´s Mitch McConnell´s plan? How´s that been working so far? I like leaders who try. They don´t always win, but at least they don´t just give up and roll over. The list of things we can´t do is endless if we never try.

As for criticism of Cruz´s motivation, what is Mitch McConnell´s motivation? Is he in it for anyone other than himself? Sure doesn´t look like it. McConnell´s dropping opposition research on Bevin like it´s going out of style to hang onto his seat.

The standards applied to conservative activists are always different. Cruz is attacked because his approach might not work. I have yet to hear how opposing Cruz gets rid of Obamacare.

It´s a sincere question: If you oppose Cruz, what´s your plan for getting rid of Obamacare? Kindly explain it to us "Rube Goldberg" types.

I find it disturbing that so many trolls have successfully infiltrated this site to foment division among Republicans. These people purport to be "pure" conservatives but they are really Democrat operatives working to undermine the Republican party and keep our real enemies (Obama, Reid, Schumer, Pelosi, etc.) in power.

I will not name names, lest I offend the site regulators, who seek to maintain civility here (a rare treasure, not found on most discussion sites), but I´m sure many of you can figure out who they are. As the Lord said, "You know them by their fruit."

I emailed Sen Cornyn this morning. I said that he needed to step forward and declare his intentions. If the rumor that he and Sen. McConnell are actively garnering votes to oppose Sen Cruz is true, I told him that I would need time to support a campaign against him in the next Texas primary. If he can´t support Sen. Cruz on this issue, he needs to be upfront and explain his position. Working in the shadows while claiming to be above the fray does not gain respect or Texas votes.

I blame Obama. He´s the president and he has the Senate but not the House. He (and his Senate "leadership") is the one who should be reaching across the aisle to negotiate a compromise. Instead, Cruz is getting beaten up for doing what I believe he said he said he would do while campaign for the US Senate. Our side always caves and for what? For senators like Cornyn and McConell who have been in office for what seems like forever?

Cornyn and Cruz are my senators. I have sent multiple E-mails to Cornyn to express by anger that a continuing resolution would be used to launch a major new entitlement program for which the President has delayed several key pieces. With 12 billion in revenue not coming in on schedule and people being coached on how to claim tax credits to which they might not be entitled, he can not allow this to happen. Last night I got a poll question and donation E-mail asking if I wanted him to continue to fight. My guess is he is reconsidering joining Ted in the fight. Its also my guess that I´ll support a more conservative challenger in his next race.

I used to like Cornyn, but noticed for a long time that he is actually a coward. Never comes forward, rarely speaks up for conservatives. Yes, he has made a case, occasionally,but he is not consistent and is easily shut up. Perhaps he has skeletons that the NSA passed on to the First Clown? McConnell only takes the side of the ´Right´ before an election, slinks off into the shadows until the next election. Good riddance to both of them.

Cruz has a reverence and precise understanding of the Constitution that many can only envy.
He was sent to Washington to kill Obamacare. Most Republicans who won their last election in the House campaigned on that promise.
Besides the wording in the Constitution, he studies the writings of the Founding Fathers (copius notes) which clearly spell out what they feared from future governments.
Ted Cruz is in it FOR THE PEOPLE..a rare man indeed among the Republicans.
WE the People do not want Obamacare. So few are willing to represent us.

#5/17, please do some very basic research on Ted Cruz over the last 20 years. In Texas, he has been defending Texans and our rights against an intrusive federal government and against the ridiculous demands of the UN. His street creds on fighting for Texans is huge, and he has been very successful with his defense of normal Texans against government laws and bureaucracies. He is continuing that history with his defense of normal US citizens health care, right now.

And one other thing, Texans are members of the US citizenry, at this point in time.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
