Of course, but what I was asking was in regards to non-pols...other than the sick dems, I’ve seen nothing but glaring support.
Screw King, McConnell et al - the light has landed on their dark corners and I am grateful.
WOW....Peter King is a MAJOR loser. He needs to go.
I believe that you are correct...some people (many actually) are just not informed of what is going on...I look at it as my mission to expose the truth to the uninformed!
Still sharp as a tack.....
Just thinking the same thing.
Obama would have been pumped full of speed and coke at this point....
Like his 2008 Roman Columns acceptance speech...
Thank you for a different take on the fillibuster. Something to think about. We do KNOW though that some of our senior Senator’s and Congressmen are STABBING CRUZ by words and deeds!

Guy from RNC said they are working hard behind scene to put Obombashare bill down. Told him they needed to grow a pair if they wanted to get the job done! He laughed and asked if I wanted to pass that message. Replied “you betcha!”
If Harry Reid intends to obstruct the process, then I will pray God removes him from the floor of the senate just as HE removed annas and sapphira (Acts 8)
Last time Rubio spoke, he was stressing how he, Cruz, etc., are the ones who are truly standing up against the political elite and for the regular guys. It would’ve been the perfect opportunity to tie it in to the filibuster in the ‘60s when the GOP was pushing the Civil Rights Act, and the democrats (Robt. Byrd) filibustered AGAINST civil rights.
The idiots assume, and are told, that it was the democrats who were in favor of civil rights when, in fact, they strongly opposed that. People need to hear the truth. Sadly, the people who need to hear the truth aren’t paying attention now; they’re focused on “Dancing With the Stars”, “Duck Dynasty”, Kardashians, etc. Brain dead.
Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and John Cornyn (R-TX) the top two Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate announced yesterday that they will support “cloture” on the government funding bill, giving Harry Reid and the Democrats a procedural green light to fund Obamacare with only 50 votes.
MG, thanks for this post..very inside baseball...helps to understand the process...makes me feel like I’m back in No. vA....shudder!

Mumbles and Cornball are in bumbling panic mode and just want the hot potato off their plate for now. Total buffoonery.
One of the Hobbit Hole threads did it first, years before the Undead Thread was... born.
On topic remark: Ted Cruz is awesome. John Cornyn will pay a price in the primary next year, for not supporting him.
Heres the part where Mitch McConnell brings in all the telegrams from RINOs urging Cruz to quit.
Excellent summary. I did get pretty emotional last night..I couldn’t believe how little visible support he was getting.
I’ve settled down;)
We need to find a real opponent to run against Cornyn
Alexander and Corker's DC office lines are busy but I did finally get through on both. I hope their ears are burning.
exactly!!!! You have every right to be proud!
Cruz: Stop calling them “private exchanges”
They are not private
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.
Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Get some rest...I know it's hard to stop watching this historic event...and get well :)
Just trying to carry on family tradition...... From the comfort of lounge chair.
We as a people just don’t want to get involved and endanger our comforts!
We need a little more of ...”nothing left to loose” attitude of our youth!
He has announced his plan as to how the process goes forward. With McConnell's help he will get 60 votes to invoke cloture. Then he will proceed to allow one and only one amendment to the HR bill. Then the Defund section will be stripped out. He has been clear.
The Stupid Party wants us to lie back and enjoy it (when rape is inevitable....)
Cruz has exposed the Stupid Party fully - over and over. Will he stop talking when Harry tells him to?
Last I heard, Peter King was defending the NSA because they stop terrorists. That’s why we had the Marathon bombing, the “American” Somalian terrorist bombing and the Naval Base shooting. Because the NSA works so well. Stuff it Peter!
oh oh ....
DITTO!!!!!!!!! Have no use for TV, FOX News included!
Dang- Rubio was GOOD in that last round.
I have been furious with him over immigration- am not forgetting that- however I applaud him on this.
Durbin is back.... this should be fun...
Durbin shows up to debate.
“Did McCain poke his ugly head out yet?”
Haven’t seen him yet. He and/or Graham are on the Sunday shows almost every week - though they haven’t been the last couple of weeks. I can’t say what I think of the both of them (wouldn’t be ladylike and I’d get banned from FR).I wish he would retire and I’d hope that one of the other Pubbies wins Linda’s seat next election.
