Ted Cruz Goes on Attack and Raises Bipartisan Hackles

Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, sat silent and satisfied in the corner of the chamber — his voice lost to laryngitis — as he absorbed what he had wrought in his mere seven weeks of Senate service.

Mr. Hagel, a former senator from Mr. Cruz’s own party, was about to be the victim of the first filibuster of a nominee to lead the Pentagon. The blockade was due in no small part to the very junior senator’s relentless pursuit of speeches, financial records or any other documents with Mr. Hagel’s name on them going back at least five years. Some Republicans praised the work of the brash newcomer, but others joined Democrats in saying that Mr. Cruz had gone too far.

Without naming names, Senator Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California, offered a biting label for the Texan’s accusatory crusade: McCarthyism.

and maybe thats not a bad thing,,,most of the elected officials in this country are socialist/communists...that is not what this country is about..go get em i say..

 Senator Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California, offered a biting label for the Texan’s accusatory crusade: McCarthyism. If it was McCarthyism, Boxer would be one of first on the commie list.

I would rather have McCarthyism than Obamaism!

I just wish that McCarthy had been able to finish what he started. 

Well, the media always thinks that if is not their way is the highway. I hate to break to them, but that is how the truth is brought to light. These senators have dirt on themselves.  The mayority are taking legal payola, so that they can perpetually continue on their seats. That is why it takes a new comer to ask deep probing questions. 

We need more Congressmen likeTed Cruz who have backbone, and won't cringe when a Barbra Boxer makes a fool of herself with name calling.  It strikes me that only the Texans seem to have strong leaders in Congress like Cruz and Stockman.  Also, cudos to Rand Paul of Kentuckey.  None of the wimp RINOS from the NE can even hold up thir own trousers.  What's up with that?

"They'll" get to this new senator and pay him off or threaten him and he'll fall into line just like the rest of the chicken s#*t GOP. We have an ILLEGAL running this Country into the ground and nobody in the government is doing a thing about it.

Sen's Rand Paul and  Ted Cruz are patriots!  Let's hope that they can handle the Heat when the illegal thug in the wh, Obutthead and his henchmen start applying pressure, Chicago-style.  We've already seen what they can do to the likes of Boehner, Issa and Justice Roberts.  We The People are going to be needing solid leadership to go along with our military constituents (Constitutional Patriots like Gen. Boykin, Gen Vallele, Lt. Col. West and North,etc.) when this civil war breaks out.

I will really laugh when Texas and a few other states that have the guts enough to seceed from this so called union now and start their own country based on the bill of rights and constitution and leave the liberals enough rope to hang themselves as a government

The republican astablishment is no better than the democrat astablishment they are both full of old scum bags who have been in office to long they don't care about the people or our country all they care about is themselves and holding on to there positions so they can continue to rape and steal from the American people the new congressman and senators who are conservative are our only chance no one should be able to stay longer than four years butt I think it's to late to much damage has been done now we need to start over and clean out the scum no republicans no democrats like our founding fathers warned us about just representatives for the people who they are supposed to represent

This is why we need more new people with a fresh ways of looking at things !!!

YES AND IF YOU REMEMBER MCCHARTY WAS THE ONLY ONE IN THE SENATE THAT WOULD STAND UP AND SAY HEY WE HAVE COMMUNISTS TRYING TO INFILTRATE AND TAKE OVER THE AMERICAN GOVT.THEY ALL SAID HE WAS CRAZY AND THREW HIM UNDER THE BUS.WELL WELL LOOK WHO HAS COME OUT OF HIDING AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!THE COMMUNISTS THAT WHERE HIDING IN THE CAPITAL UNTILL THEY COULD GET THE WHITE HOUSE UNDER THEIR CONTROL NOW DESTRUCTION IS IN THEIR SITES!

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
