I do believe that Ted Cruz is one of the most brilliant elected officials in Washington DC. He is undoubtedly one of our greatest patriots, and totally fearless, and he has just done something that is totally unorthodox. He started a fight that he knew in advance that he would lose. That makes no sense at all unless one has a devious side and, being totally dedicated to this nation and its Constitution, has decided to expose the treasonous members of both parties now serving in the Senate. What could be the motive. Shall we go there?
Have you ever noticed how so many politicians can talk all day and say nothing substantial? That is one of the things that I love about Senator Cruz. He is so straightforward with the truth that he will go into harm's way to deliver that truth. The following is one such example from earlier this year that I have used in several of my essays. These words were not uttered by a non-committal, wishy-washy kind of person. He tells it like it is and that is the way that I like it.
Ted Cruz: 'Hell Will Freeze Over' Before Establishment GOP Listens to American People
Cruz said earlier in the interview that many Republicans in the U.S. Congress wanted to increase the debt ceiling, "Make no mistake about it, Cruz said, "This was their desired outcome. An awful lot of Republicans wanted exactly what Barrack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid wanted, which was to raise the debt ceiling."
Such comments make him most unpopular with both the elected Democrats as well as the progressive Republicans (RINOs). The latter group seemingly have it within their power to make quite certain that Cruz will never be nominated for President.
In that same article he further reveals more of the GOP agenda: I hope that you choose to click the link above and read the whole article from Breitbart, as copyright laws will not allow me to print the whole piece here. However I can print one more paragraph...quite revealing I might add.
“A few months ago, when we were fighting trying to stop the disaster that is Obamacare, where a lot of Washington gray beards said, ‘we are going to fight on the debt ceiling. That’s where the fight will be,’” Cruz said. “It’s like they think the American people are a bunch of rubes, we don’t remember what they say.”
Cruz is discussing the vote in February of 2013 to increase the debt ceiling which he opposed. Mitch McConnell was quite content to allow the vote to pass with a bare fifty one percent majority. Senator Cruz managed to invoke a technicality that forced a sixty percent majority to pass. That created problems for the progressive Republicans in the Senate as their loyalties were with Obama and Harry Reid and they had hoped to vote against the bill, to appease their constituents, while still permitting it to pass.
Now Ted Cruz put them on the spot as suddenly they had to acquire some Republican votes to pass the budget. McConnell, Cornyn, and six other Republicans changed their votes and their names were not announced. Six traitors do make quite a sleeper cell, rest assured there are more, and contrary to established policy, the privacy of their vote switching was protected.
And so through political maneuvering at its finest the senator managed to prove his point about the GOP and hell freezing over, but he still lacked the specific names of all who had abandoned America in joining the progressive movement. He wanted those names...All of them, and so he set out to get them, in a unique, brilliant, and most unusual way.
Author's comment: Again, copyright laws restrain me from publishing all of a very important link. The two most pertinent paragraphs are presented below, but after finishing this essay please return to this point and read the entire link below.
Breitbart ... December 13, 2014
HARRY REID'S FINAL ACT AS MAJORITY LEADER: CAVING TO FIGHT AGAINST OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY
Early in this essay I wrote that Senator Cruz had started a fight that he knew that he was going to lose. A man of his intelligence and integrity would not do so unless there was something to gain. Ole Harry Reid, by the same token, does not cave unless he is confident that he will gain in the process. Well Mr. Reid has met his match, or perhaps I should say his 'better'. He has just been outmaneuvered.
People are still scratching their heads trying to understand why Cruz allowed the Dems to 'win' this round. Admittedly it took me awhile as well but he was in a no win situation opposing the entire Democratic Senate along with their allies in the GOP, on Amnesty, the budget, and everything else. If you cannot avoid losing then by all means do it with style and gain something in the process. He gained the list of traitors he has been seeking, as much of the Republican Senate blindly followed their leader, Hussein Obama.
“Forcing a vote on the constitutionality of Obama's amnesty is important for two reasons,” Cruz said in a statement his office provided to Breitbart News. “First, since President Obama enacted his unilateral amnesty after the elections, Democrats have never been made to answer for it. Tonight, they will and they will show America whether they stand with a lawless President, who is defying the will of the voters or the millions of Americans who want a safe and legal immigration system.”
Cruz went on to detail more reasons why this fight was important.
“Second, it allows Republicans to also show they are committed to ending Obama's amnesty once and for all in the next Congress,” Cruz said. "If we agree it is indeed unconstitutional, we have no business funding it when the GOP controls Congress next year. The Constitution matters, and we must defend it. That is why we have fought so hard to ensure this vote.”
Now back to the first line of that excerpt: “Forcing a vote on the constitutionality of Obama's amnesty is important for two reasons,”. Not content to simply allow an up or down vote and lose, as he most certainly would have lost, the brilliant senator turned the vote into a referendum on the Constitutionality of Obama's Amnesty plan. And in the first line of the second paragraph he tells us that he gave his fellow Republicans one last chance to do the right thing "Second, it allows Republicans to also show they are committed to ending Obama's amnesty once and for all in the next Congress,”.
None there had the wisdom to grasp what Ted Cruz had just done. We all know that Obama's unilateral Amnesty is unconstitutional. Cruz identified the vote as a measure to determine who would support the Constitution and who would follow a lawless President. He and twenty one other Republicans voted in favor of the Constitution. The rest chose to abandon it in favor of the leftist agenda.
One thing that has long bothered me is the traditional introduction of a congressman as 'The honorable (insert name here)'. Wherein lies the honor when only twenty two percent of these honorable men support the Constitution and rest support another agenda?
But Ted Cruz got the list he wanted and it is here for your reading.
United States Senate ... December 13, 2014
U.S. Senate Roll Call Votes 113th Congress - 2nd Session
Editor's note: You need not carefully read the entire list below. The breakdown on the vote is presented in various formats in the link above. The list I present is the format most advantageous to the point that I am making. Note that twenty one Republican senators voted with Ted Cruz. The Democrats voted along party lines, joined by many members of the GOP, highlighted in yellow for convenience.
Grouped By Vote Position
Not Voting - 4
Now Ted Cruz has his list of turncoats and the question remains, what is he planning to do with it?
The proposed measure to halt the executive Amnesty was always expected to fail when it came down to the vote; politics as usual. All fifty five of the Democrats were expected to vote against Cruz’s measure, while conservatives were hoping that all forty five Republicans or at least the majority would support Ted Cruz, but when the counting was done and the votes tallied, a mere twenty one of his allies voted to uphold the Constitution.
Think back to when Allen West stated that there were between 78 and 81 communists in the House of Representatives. It would seem that there are a lot of those 'honorable' people throughout our government. Whether in the Senate, the House, our courts, our appointed officials, or in the White House; if they mean to harm this nation and thwart its laws, it matters not whether you refer to them as communists, Marxists, progressives, leftists, or liberals, they practice treason.
I have long written that this nation will not survive until the end of Obama's second term, and unless something very drastic happens I shall sadly be proven right. Civil war is brewing but not from the conservatives, they are still hoping to Votem Out. This anarchy and chaos is being designed by the powers that be and shall implemented by the lowly and the unthinking.
Our conservatives have have largely entered a state of denial, choosing to disregard the next two years and plan on the 2016 election. But, part of that state of denial is their disregarding how poorly we fared in the last four trips to the voting booths. Outvoted in 2008 and 2012, and betrayed by the GOP in 2010 and 2014, and I might add, betrayed as well in 2012 as Mitt Romney, progressive, was but a shill to defeat the conservatives in the primaries and then give the election to Obama.
Above I stated that this nation will not last until the 2016 election unless something drastic occurs and I can think of only one thing drastic enough to make a difference, and that is military intervention. Our men and women in uniform have been on the receiving end of Obama's treachery for the last six years and they are suffering low morale. I have no doubt that many thousands of these fine young people would gladly give their all to once again make this nation right.
Our Flag Officers have long known of the treasonous behavior in the White House. They have long known the traitors in the House of Representatives. Now, thanks to a political move on the part of Ted Cruz they have a comprehensive list of the Senators and their agenda.
I cannot say for certain that the military will make the move, and if they do I cannot say for certain just when it would take place. Such timing and tactics are best left to the pros in their war room, but from the view of this armchair strategist, if they do make such a move, I could not envision a better time than the State of the Union Address, when they are all assembled in one location.
I cannot not in good faith tell you for certain that, like the cavalry in the old westerns, they will ride in to save us at the last minute, and even if they do there is going to be hell to pay. Over half of our population is so far to the left there is no bringing them back and that is the whole source of our problem...our people.
The Egyptian people rose against rule by the Muslim Brotherhood and the military announced a new election, and soon they had the change they wanted. Were Obama to be removed from office and a new election announced, we would soon have the same thing all over again. Unless drastic change is soon enacted, restoring our Constitution and changing our voting laws and spending policies, my friends I fear that it will soon be all over.
