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.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists. The unspeakable crime of conservatives? Their heartless desire to live their own lives and to be left alone by the bullying U.S. government. What has been the conservative outcry since disco was still a thing? Follow the Constitution, be fiscally responsible, and restore limited government.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

Lyndhurst, Ohio -Christina Lunka appeared nervous and excited as she sat in the Chinese herbal therapy center recently opened by the Cleveland Clinic. The 49-year-old had been to many doctors seeking help for ongoing issues that included joint pain and digestive problems. Now the Kirtland, Ohio, resident was hoping to find relief through herbal remedies. "Do you have something for inflammation?" Ms. Lunka asked herbalist Galina Roofener during a one-hour consultation. "Absolutely," responded Ms. Roofener. "This is for pain, for digestion, for inflammation, all of the above," she said, handing Ms. Lunka a bottle with capsules of an herbal combination called

First lady Michelle Obama told “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” co-hosts Michael Strahan and Kelly Ripa that Sundays for the first family have become more about napping, downtime and family time than about church or godly worship. She made the comments in response to a question from the co-hosts during the Easter Egg Roll at the White House, when they asked for a description of a typical Obama family Sunday, Breitbart reported. Mrs. Obama said: “We try to go to church as much as possible, but when the kids get older, you know, Sunday is some kind of practice, rehearsal, birthday

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is criticizing the Bureau of Land Management for apparently euthanizing an unknown number of cattle at the Bundy Ranch. “These animals shouldn´t be killed either by the government, or by the rancher who plans to send the cows off to slaughter. The best thing anyone can do to stop the suffering of animals is to go vegan,” PETA´s Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said in a written statement to Breitbart News. The Bundy Ranch Facebook Page, run by Cliven Bundy’s daughter Bailey Bundy Logue, posted photos on Saturday night of a mass

Portland, Ore., is a nice place to live. Nothing much happens there, and that’s its charm. Oregon is perhaps the most politically correct of the 50 states, shading even Massachusetts, and Reservoir 5 of the Portland water system is a monument to the work of the weenie bureaucrat. Portland is so straight-laced, in fact, that the daily newspaper refuses to identify the Washington Redskins as the Redskins, lest it offend the native redskins. Newspapers elsewhere, with no sensitivity, report bad news as well as the good — fires, floods, riots and even wars. Sensitivity reigns unchallenged on the banks of

The Garden State has the country´s highest percentage of foreclosures among mortgaged homes -- and that´s just the beginning. Early this year, banking and real-estate analysts concluded that New Jersey had achieved a dubious distinction, passing Florida to become the state with the highest percentage of foreclosure among mortgaged homes, 6.2 percent as calculated by CoreLogic, a leader in real-estate analytics. (That percentage was actually an improvement from a year earlier.) Meanwhile, Florida’s rate dropped to 6 percent from 10.1 percent in 2012, and housing markets around the country are recovering far faster from the Great Recession. New Jersey also

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
