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What more CLEAR proof do We the People need to show that the Republican Party no longer represents our interests.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

TEA PARTY -> Lois Lerner Case Explodes:
IRS Docs Link McCain’s Office To Tea Party Attacks

Since announcing his brain cancer was terminal, Arizon Sen. John McCain has continued to make headlines, but not due to his medical status. Instead, it has been one controversy after another revolving around him, and now one more had been added to the list.

This one is based in his dislike not for Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, but of the tea party.

McCain has never really endeared himself to conservatives, and he made his feeling public about the tea party movement at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor in 2015, according to a Yahoo report.

“I think also — I probably shouldn’t say this — but some of (the tea party) appeals to the bad angels of our nature rather than the better angels of our nature,” McCain said.

This attitude ties into the latest scandal swirling around McCain.

One of a number of scandals that plagued President Barack Obama and his administration involved the IRS targeting tea party groups after 2010. It seemed that their tax-exempt status requests were denied or delayed due to intense political partisanship in the agency.

In May 2013, The Washington Post reported that the IRS’s exempt-organizations division director Lois Lerner “let slip” the week prior “that low-level IRS staffers had focused extra scrutiny on conservative groups with words such as ‘tea party’ or ‘patriot’ in their names.”

In addition, “internal reviews have shown that Lerner knew about the targeting in 2011 — but neither Congress nor the public knew until (2013).” Despite this, Lerner was never prosecuted and was allowed to retire with her taxpayer-funded pension intact.

This did not change, even after House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam, an Illinois Republican, wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In it, they begged him to reopen a probe into the matter, according to Jay Sekulow, chief council for the American Center for Law and Justice, writing in a commentary for Fox News.

When President Donald Trump was sworn into office, some held out hope that the perceived injustices from Obama’s tenure would somehow be made right. However, in September 2017, Trump’s administration had already preemptively declined to pursue criminal charges against Lerner “based on the available evidence,” according to Fox News.

But more has since been uncovered about the scandal. Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has obtained and released “internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.”

Judicial Watch �dd0e

JW President @TomFitton: Much of what you know about the IRS scandal is thanks to JW... Our new docs show the scandal is bipartisan in nature. A McCain staffer suggested Lois Lerner audit all of the 501(c)(4) groups in a way that'd be financially ruinous.

Meeting notes from April 30, 2013, involving Kerner, Lerner, “and other high-ranking IRS officials” were obtained by JW. With the meeting taking place only 10 days before the IRS scandal exploded into the public view, they are particularly incriminating against Kerner and Lerner:

“Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time.”

“Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely.”

“Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints.”

“Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.”

Thus far, there is no evidence that McCain knew about or directed Kerner to take such action. It is plausible that Kerner, knowing of McCain’s dislike of the tea party, opted to be a proactive and loyal staffer by urging the IRS to take action against the groups.

But McCain’s personality does little to keep him far removed from the scandal and tongues are wagging with speculation as to his involvement. Regardless, McCain’s frosty relationship with President Donald Trump has not made the Arizona senator many fans among Trump supporters.

New suspicions about him betraying the tea party won’t help matters at all.

OMG

Chelsea Handler Says Fox Doesn’t Work With
Black People, Obviously Doesn’t Watch Network

Humor is supposed to be based on truth. After all, the reason we laugh at a joke or scenario is because it triggers a feeling of recognition about reality, especially if it’s presented in an unexpected way.

It doesn’t look like “comedian” Chelsea Handler has a very firm grasp on truth or reality, however.

After a production error during a Fox News broadcast was called out by users on Twitter, the raunchy and sex-obsessed Handler tried to bash the network … but ended up showing off her ignorance instead.

“Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle,” the comedian and television host posted on Twitter Thursday evening.

That part was true enough: Fox admitted that they made a mistake on a background slide during a tribute to the late soul singer, and accidentally showed a faded photo of LaBelle. The main image still showed Franklin, who passed away on Thursday in Detroit.

Broadcast television is complex, which you would think Handler understands after being involved in TV for many years. Honest mistakes happen on every network. But no: In Handler’s alternate reality, the only explanation for the mistake was racism.

“It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any,” she declared.

Chelsea Handler  @chelseahandler

Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle. It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any.

Was she trying to be bitter or funny? It was hard to tell, but either way, that statement shows just how isolated the Hollywood left is from reality.

If she really believes that Fox has “never worked with any” black people, maybe she should try an experiment: Actually watch the channel for a minute.

She would probably tune in to the face of Harris Faulkner, the enthusiastic and Emmy-winning host of “Outnumbered,” which airs every single weekday.

Or, maybe she could get a clue from Deneen Borelli, another well-known face of Fox News for nearly a decade. How about the venerable Juan Williams, co-host of “The Five” and a “Fox News Sunday” regular for over 20 years?

Nah. They apparently don’t count, because Handler would rather live in an alternate reality of ignorance than admit she was the one making racial assumptions.

We’re not finished! Moving on to frequent guest contributors to Fox News, how about Candace Owens? Brandon Tatum? Ben Carson? Larry Elder? All of these smart individuals are familiar faces at Fox, and all are — look closely! — African American.

That’s saying nothing of the behind-the-scenes staff at Fox, a good number of whom are of course black. In fact, it’s completely possible the photo mix-up was accidentally made by a black employee. Handler openly assumed the race of the staff members who made the error, while knowing nothing.

Once again, the left has tipped their hand and revealed just how elitist and out of touch they are.

Handler has likely never turned on Fox News in her life, yet she thinks she’s an expert on it. She eagerly diminishes and waves away the contributions of black Americans to one of the most popular news stations in the nation, while lecturing others about race.

This type of attitude implies that only “liberal approved” black voices count. If they don’t parrot a 43-year-old white comedian’s politics, they’re invisible to her.

That arrogant view, and not an honest editing mistake, is perhaps the real outrage here … and it’s exactly why so many black voters are walking away from the left.
