McCain: Cruz ´Not Representing Us´
Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/11/2013 7:15:23 PM

On Friday, after blaming conservatives like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the Obama administration´s mishandling of military death benefits, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said Cruz simply did not represent the GOP. Fox News host Martha MacCallum mentioned that Cruz would be visiting President Barack Obama along with other Republican senators like Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Marco Rubio (R-FL) at the White House on Friday. She asked McCain, "How do you feel about him representing you there?" In response, McCain smirked before saying, "First of of all, Martha, please, he´s not representing us there." Also in the interview,

That is true. Cruz is definitely not representing the go-along-to-get-along, peace-at-any-price crowd which includes McPain and Miss Lindsey. Sen Cruz IS, however, representing those of us who want govt to butt out of our lives. Go, Cruz! Go Away, McCain/Graham!

Aneurism or whatever, I don´t care. I just wish he would either croak or stroke. Anything at this point to get him out of the Senate and shut his hateful traitorous ugly mouth.

McCain sure knows how to stir up the republican party in the most negative way. Does anyone like him besides the WH, Peter King and Graham? It´s time the repubs let Mc know he is not the head of the party. He´s a disgrace. I would love to see a poll Cruz versus Mc.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but, after meeting with Obama today, Ted Cruz is no longer talking about defunding Obamacare.
He now says that everyone has to work together ,
reopen the government and
make some changes to Obamacare.
Wow.
“I told the president exactly the same thing I have told you here today: That we need to work together and fund the government
and at the same time provide substantial relief to the millions of people
who are hurting because of Obamacare, who are losing their jobs, being forced into part-time work and losing their health insurance,” Cruz said.
What happened to Shut Er Down ???
What happened to " fighting " ???
What happened to defunding Obamacare ??

Get Out Your Checkbook NOW By: Erick Erickson
Republican leaders in Washington, DC are signaling they will cave on the fight against Obamacare. Heck, they are signaling they are caving on everything.
Isn’t it interesting that when Ted Cruz and Jim DeMint were touring America to fight against Obamacare, the popularity of the GOP was going up and the popularity of Obamacare was going down. But now that John Boehner and the Orange Man Group of Capitol Hill are the faces of the GOP, Obamacare’s popularity is going back up and the GOP’s popularity is going back down.
GOP Leaders, by caving, are signaling they want us to primary them.
I am happy to help.
I have just given money to Heritage Action for America.
https://heritageaction.com/don...
I have just given money to Senate Conservatives Fund.
https://secure.senateconservat...
These two groups will be at the forefront of the fight.

I am also giving money to Eric Gurr. He has decided to primary Speaker John Boehner in Ohio. http://www.gurrforcongress.com...
I am also giving money to Matt Bevin. He is the primary challenger to Mitch McConnell. https://mattbevin.com/

Ted Cruz does represent the American people and nearly stands alone doing it. I wish he were President.

McCain is a gasbag RINO who represents Big Socialist government thievery. It is nothing short of fraud that he labels himself a Republican. He´s a career politician, never a statesman, who has bled America´s wallet for decades.

Go away McCain! You represent only your own greedy, self-serving, interests. Buy yourself more knee-pads, you´re wearing yours out kneeling before Obama.

Dear Senator McCain: you have fulfilled your end of the bargain with the Dems and the DC swamp people in the media by acting as token opposition against Obama, a creature no different from the communists that imprisoned and tortured you. You also did your level best to backstab Sarah Palin, who was the only positive aspect of your campaign.

You have greased the skids for Obama far beyond anything dreamed up by Reid or Schumer.

Whatever you were promised, and whatever you think you´ve gained, I hope it was worth your honor and your place in history.

Dear Senator McCan´t, You are suffering from Stockholm syndrome, a complex mental disorder first manifest in you during your captivity in North Vietnam and now with the Dems. in the U.S. Senate. It´s main symptoms is a desire to please your enemy, failure to identify your enemy as your enemy, the inability to recognize that you are captive of your own mental disorder. If you really still love your country, resign.

Who really listens to that old fogie anyway?

As pointed out some time back, McCain had the lowest fitness reports in the United States Navy during his service and during captivity. Before he made it to the Hanoi Hilton, he crashed 3 aircraft of which two were pitched of the Carrier deck at a price of about $6.0 million. The man is irrelevant, thank him for his service and tell him to shut his pie hole.

This petty name calling makes the posters look just as incapable as Obama.
Arizona did run a recall on McCain but it failed.
Yes McCain collaborated as a brain washed POW and made three propaganda broadcasts
against his country then later said he was out of his head with pain. He was washed and used because his father was Admiral of the Pacific Fleet.
The ranking POW officer ordered him to cease . He didn´t so while he was well fed and received medical attention many of his fellow prisoners were starved and beaten to death.
The only reason he wasn´t court marshaled on return was because of the brain wash and sympathy .
look up his actions n the Senate over the MIA´s . He was a disgrace and had no choice left but to cling to the idea he is a rebel always part of a gang of something.

And where are the people who got mad at the Romney bashers now? They´re bashing Cruz!

Frankly, I used to say that Republicans shouldn´t speak ill of each other, but after the way McCain and the establishment treated Palin I say no more. Why should the conservative wing have to put up with all of these country club, RINO, establishment types who are so desperate to hang onto their little bit of power that they will sell out their fellow party members?


Oh, and I´m so tired of their holier than thou, superior attitude, that they know better than the rest of us and we´d just better sit down and shut up and let the experts handle it. Hell, it´s not like they´ve actually won anything lately. I say toss them all out and then elect real conservatives who can cut the budget by cutting their pensions. They´ve taken enough from us already.

I was listening to the Mark Levin radio show on Friday afternoon - he was playing excerpts of Ronald Reagan in his "A Time to Choose" speech back in 1964 - so inspiring! Took me back to those days (I was a little kid but my Mom was a precinct captain and there were always people in the dining room and stacks of literature to be mailed out) - I don´t want to stop being a Republican, I want people like John McCain to stop representing themselves as Republicans.

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder ordered a Justice Department investigation Monday into whether federal hate crimes were committed in shootings at two Jewish facilities in Overland Park, Kan., that killed three people. In a statement, Holder said he has instructed the department to provide all available support to state and local authorities to determine whether the shootings outside Kansas City over the weekend broke federal hate crimes law. The attorney general said the senseless acts of violence are all the more heartbreaking because they were carried out on the eve of Passover. Holder said the Justice Department will do

A U.S. military official says a Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region. The official says the fighter flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level, saying this prompted ship commanders to issue several radio warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and the passes ended without incident. The USS Donald Cook was operating in international waters east of Romania. It was deployed to the Black Sea April 10th,

The Justice Department is considering whether to bring federal hate crime charges against a man accused of killing three people outside a Jewish community center and retirement home in Kansas City, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Three people were killed in the Sunday rampage, which police allege was carried out by Frazier Glenn Cross. Cross is a former leader of a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. “Justice Department prosecutors will work with their state and local counterparts to provide all available support and to determine whether the federal hate crimes statute is

People participating in the food stamp program outnumbered the women who worked full-time, year-round in the United States in 2012, according to data from the Department of Agriculture and the Census Bureau. In the average month of 2012, according to the Department of Agriculture, there were 46,609,000 people participating in the food stamp program (formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). That contrasts with the 44,059,000 women who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, according to the Census Bureau’s report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States.

First, the bad news: Even if the economy improves, middle-class career paths will continue to disappear as globalization and technological innovation render more jobs obsolete. Now, the good news: The fear, stress and humiliation caused by unemployment (and underemployment) can be alleviated with a simple solution. And now, the even-better news: This simple solution is starting to find backers on both sides of the political spectrum.

Obama´s Real Job: Fundraiser in Chief

Campaigns are about numbers, so here are a few: After two separate recent events in Houston, President Obama will have attended 373 fundraisers during his five-plus years in office. That´s just about one every five days or so. Assuming he speaks for close to 15 minutes at each event, that´s well over 5,000 presidential minutes consumed by the dirty business of asking people for money. And that doesn´t include the prep, the glad-handing and hobnobbing, the photos, the private asides, the travel. The stats (as compiled by CBS News reporter Mark Knoller) illustrate in stark detail something everyone already knows:

(Video) Laura Ingraham asked a brilliant question this morning, in response to a discussion about Kathleen Sebelius’s resignation. The radio host and sometimes O’Reilly Factor fill-in was on This Week With George Stephanopoulos this morning and got right to the point: What does it take to get fired in the Obama administration? Let’s ask a very simple question, if this were an NCAA coach, if this were a corporate CEO, and we had a product roll-out as bungled and as disastrous as this, it wouldn’t be five months later that she was fired. The answer is obvious. It’s incredibly hard to

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — In January, residents here learned the news that the senior place-kicker for the University of Michigan’s football team had been permanently “separated” from the college for violating its student sexual misconduct policy. In addition, the violation, what the authorities said was a sexual assault, occurred in 2009, when the kicker was a freshman, and his punishment was not determined until his athletic career had ended this past winter. The article describing all of this, based on documents reviewed by two reporters, stated, “It’s unclear why sanctions were not decided in this matter until recently.” A month

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

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

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

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. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

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.

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
