Cruz talks Obamacare on Fox News Sunday - Republicans send Chris Wallace opposition research

GOP apparently determined to destroy anyone willing to fight. 

This morning, Senator Ted Cruz appeared on Fox News Sunday to discuss strategy in the fight to defund Obamacare. As usual, he did an excellent job of outlining the fight.  

Later in the show, during the panel discussion, Chris Wallace made a sobering announcement. When they learned of the impending conversation with Cruz, Republicans - not Democrats - began bombarding the host with reams of what Wallace called "unsolicited opposition research." So, not only are the standard GOP forces unwilling to engage in the Obamacare fight, they're actively trying to derail it by sending impromptu anti-Cruz talking points to members of the media.

That is simply unbelievable. So much for Cruz's vision of "party unity."

all of you rinos that are bad mouthing cruz better wake up or your back side will be gone we the people are sick and tired of business as usual and we are ready to get rid of you and your type of business

My party seems to be a self-defeating party.  Not even willing to try anything. So, we will just sit back and watch our country go down.   If this was 1776 the English would have won in one week.

Just another Agenda for the Turn Coat RINO'S lead by the Muslim Pres. the leader of the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD SOCIALIST DEM. PARTY Obama.

Better change Rhino to Dino !  they are more like democrat dinosaurs then the Republican   "Conservative" party ..

 The Republican patry seems to have "partied out " of existence .. folks get on board with the true conservatives . the Tea Party candidates .. they stand for GOD, Country, And Family ..

What more CLEAR proof do We the People need to show that the Republican Party no longer represents our interests.

Get Rove out of the spotlight.  He is no help to us.  All he does is tear everyone down in the Republican party who he has decided is not worthy of his support because he has not given his royal approval to.  He does not believe those who think for themselves should have any say at all.

To all GOP politicians in the house and senate, put on your CAST IRON SKIEVES if your running for re-election, because you are more then likely about to get BURNED. I would think twice about derailing TED CRUZ.

Yes! Throw all the bums overboard! Those idiots don't even dare call me for money anymore!

If this doesn't get you to join the TEA party and drop the GOP than nothing will.  I too will not send any money to the Republicans only to the TEA party candidates running for office.

    Kenneth,

        Interesting comments......and well stated.

The 1st and 2nd Amendments were included in our Constitution specifically for times like these.

The founders knew the day would come when we must use both our voices and our arms to DESTROY THE ENEMY WITHIN OUR GOVERNMENT!

They intended those two Amendments to be the legal threats entitled to American citizens for their use to hold over the heads of the tyrants arising in our government. We are now living under a tyrannical statist federal government.

The time to use your 1st and 2nd Amendments is now!

Jerry,

         I agree with you 100%.  We also need to get MARK LEVIN'S book THE LIBERTY AMENDMENTS, read that book, and then get to work on the second front against the ruling class in Washington as well.  That front is to use Article V of the U.S. Constitution to propose and pass amendments which will bring governmental power out of Washington and return it to thed states.  Everything is up to WE THE PEOPLE now!  The Washington traitors will never voluntarily give up their power to coerce WE THE PEOPLE.....thus, WE MUST TAKE IT BACK!

ALERT ALERT

 Judge Orders Mueller To Prove  Russia Meddled In Election 

Judge Dabney L. Friedrich

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections.

According to the judge’s request for clarification, the Justice Department has argued that it doesn’t have to show that Concord had a legal duty to report its expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Rather, the allegation is that the company knowingly engaged in deceptive acts that precluded the FEC, or the Justice Department, from ascertaining whether they had broken the law. -Bloomberg

On Monday, Friedrich raised questions over whether the special counsel’s office could prove a key element of their case – saying that it was “hard to see” how allegations of Russian influence were intended to interfere with US government operations vs. simply “confusing voters,” reports law.com.

During a 90-minute hearing, Friedrich questioned prosecutor Jonathan Kravis about how the government would be able to show the Russian defendants were aware of the Justice Department and FEC’s functions and then deliberately sought to skirt them.

“You still have to show knowledge of the agencies and what they do. How do you do that?” Friedrich asked.

Kravis, a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, argued that the government needed only to show that Concord Management and the other defendants were generally aware that the U.S. government “regulates and monitors” foreign participation in American politics. That awareness, Kravis said, could be inferred from the Russians’ alleged creation of fake social media accounts that appeared to be run by U.S. citizens and “computer infrastructure” intended to mask the Russian origin of the influence operation.

“That is deception that is directed at a higher level,” Kravis said. Kravis appeared in court with Michael Dreeben, a top Justice Department appellate lawyer on detail to the special counsel’s office. -law.com

Concord pleaded not guilty in May. Their attorney, Eric Dubelier – a partner at Reed Smith, has described the election meddling charges as “make believe,” arguing on Monday that Mueller’s indictment against Concord “doesn’t charge a crime.”

“There is no statute of interfering with an election. There just isn’t,” said Dubelier, who added that Mueller’s office alleged a “made-up crime to fit the facts they have.”

Dubelier added that the case against Concord Management is the first in US history “where anyone has ever been charged with defrauding the Justice Department” through their failure to register under FARA.
