I hope you right, and that they did some planning on this. It has looked that way at times. Rand Paul’s filibuster was reportedly almost a spur of the moment affair: wrong shoes, no device for bathroom breaks, support not really lined up. I hope they learned from that, because it was still effective, but could have been even better.
I sure hope Sen Cruz is with us when the enevitable happens and it is our time to pledge our lives, fortunes and sacred honor.
Cruz has gotten no support at all from “Republican pundits” on Fox News from what I am reading on this forum
How sickening. McConnell has to be one of the most vile men to ever serve. Him and his many chins will be tossed out, I pray.
Regardless, the light has been light, the levy has broken and they have nowhere to hide.
All I know for a fact is that I will never ever comply with this illegal bill.
Thanks for the update. God bless these courageous Senators for being there for Ted Cruz. I keep tweeting/trying to call the cowards who haven’t the guts to show up for Ted OR answer their sorry phones.
Just left my comments with his secretary!!
CALL!! CALL!!! CALL!!!202 225-7896
No news agency has mentioned that before he read “green eggs and ham” he read 6 verses out of the book of Proverbs...I cannot recall the last time a US Senator read out of the BIBLE on the Senate FLOOR! I’m voting for him for President even if I have to WRITE TED CRUZ in!
This is TRULY a Mr. Smith Goes to Washington moment playing out live. I support Cruz with all my heart and soul.
I will believe that's what happened til my dying day.
I don’t recommend checking out National Review Online, unless you want to be as angry as it made me. I’ll keep reading Mark Steyn and Victor Davis Hanson, and keep hoping they find a new home.
Peter King has stooped to an ALL TIME low. Shame on him.
This could be the BREAK we have been waiting for... A MOMENT IN TIME where the momentum gets moving! It will catch fire hopefully and spread fast!!! KEEP THE CALLS GOING TODAY!
Excellent point about the Civil Rights Act.
Hannity is behind Cruz. That’s all as far as I know.
Cruz is separating the wheat from the chaff.
Rep. King is chaff
I watch Fox News regularly. Ted Cruz captured my attention and I was riveted to his filibuster since it started. There was no Fox News in my house since he began the filibuster. This is historic TV. Seen enough of Karl Rove. I'm sick of all the talking heads and the media. They can all go to hell. I don't care what they say any more. I will just carry on and fight for what I believe in. The internet and talk radio are fine substitutes for TV, Fox News included.
THOSE were my EXACT WORDS to Peter King’s office!!
AMEN and AMEN! Moreover, I will not comply with this GD law. They can lock my a## in jail and throw away the key first.
And yet this morning appearing on Beck Radio Show, he again spouts that they can not win.
Itsahoot knows what Paul is saying, do you? Or are you just full of wishful thinking?
He will vote with Cruz but has repeatedly said it will do no good, just said as much on Beck Radio Show, I would rather he just shut up.
