Ted Cruz gets it.
Here we go....
OMG - he just shut down Harry Reid
The made up judy, according to durbin was never offered employer paid health insurancw. She could have purchased coverage but refused to.
Yep. Now Cruz is schooling the madame president.......she says the senator is correct. Wow after this long is still this sharp.
Has he out maneuvered Harry ?
I love how Cruz just called Reid out for speaking out of turn...he has not yielded the floor and no one else had the right to speak.
Cruz has no qualms about taking it to those a-holes and holding his ground. I love him.
I called both my TN senators..Corker and Alexander to tell their staff that I was disappointed that I never saw them last night..
I asked where was Corker to be told somethig about he was busy working on senate doings..
to that I informed the girl that that would be right on the Senate floor where was he and why wasnt he there..I expected him to be there..
I said I wanted Corker to vote NO on closture to be told he was going to vote against funding ObamaCare
Knowing the deceit that is planned I said but first comes the closture vote ...
the girl said she didnt know anything about that..and parroted the talking points that he was going to vote against funding..
and HERRRRES HARRY !!!
and Sen Cruz has said he has not yeilded..
the pres agreed..
OMG - he just shut down Harry Reid
Now he speaks of wrapping up in 31 minutes.
He asked Reid to continue speaking beyond 12:00 noon, but Reid said no. Thus, 29 minutes left to him.
Make Harry weep Ted, keep talking
It’s business hours,,where the hell are all the Senators at?
“I am re-reading Atlas Shrugged”
I am in the middle of reading Atlas Shrugged and about a week ago, I LOST MY KINDLE. I think it fell in a trashcan. I looked for it a week and three days ago, I ordered a new one. It will be here around the 9th of Oct., and I’ll have to download my books, including Atlas Shrugged, from my Amazon account to my new Kindle. Right now, there is not a book in this house I haven’t read. Losing a Kindle, is tragic!
HE would not yield the floor without Reid “asking him”...Reid backed down.... Beautiful!
He’s just spelled out the consents he’s going to ask for. He would like to keep talking until he drops. He would like the vote on cloture on Friday evening and not Saturday when people will be watching football games.
I watched the exchange between Ted Cruz and low life Democrat, Dick Durbin. Objectively....Cruz mopped up the floor with him. And....he did exactly the same to Gutter, trash, Senator Kaine VA, making him look like the moron he is!!! It was wonderful to watch a master of debate in action!!! The Two Democrats were like frightened deer with headlights in their eyes!!! Bravo, Senator Cruz!!!
Avoiding Cruz so they can still be invited to cocktail parties at the homes of the media elite
So I wonder what happens if Cruz continues past when Reid wants to have his traitorous vote?
:)Winding up now.
Cruz hits a speedbump. The only surprise is that Judy wasn’t Black with 8 kids and working minimum wage.
Pray America is Waking Up
Couldn’t reach McConnell’s DC Office. Wound up calling Bowling Green. Lady was nice but abrupt. Sort of tried to tell me that they have inundated with calls and emails. She tried to shut me down (politely) and I asked her if she would not interrupt me. I then mentioned my email to McConnell was over two weeks ago and that it had not been answered.
She then tried to say that they have been inundated for over two weeks and were working hard to answer everything.
I told her I knew she didn’t want to take my call, and that the Minority Leader would not support Ted Cruz but I wish he would. I also said what the Minority was doing to Cruz and Lee was despicable. She thanked me for my views, politely told me it wasn’t that she didn’t want to take my call, but had another call coming in to her office. Yeah right.......
I will write him again I think after this is all over and let him and the rest of the Cruz and Lee haters know the reason why I left the Republican Party and what I think of GOP elites. Moreover, I believe I’ll tell them what they can do with their beg letters.
Thank you very much.
I laid down at around 6:30 and somewhere an hour disappeared til Vaeh came in all brighteyed and bushytailed and I gtoaned awake. Oh boy.
The shining light on the hill is shining one more time. So the US senators all ran and hid like the cockroaches they are.
Shout out to Rep Louie Gohmert for staying the ENTIRE time! God bless Louie!!
What happened? How did Reid try to interrupt him? did he pound the gavel?
Air hissing out of he balloon...
This cannot be forgotten...we, the People, have spoken through Sen. Cruz.
We will NOT be ignored!!!
Gohmert was there ALL night...go after Cornyn, Louie...
Thanking Mike Lee....sniff
Cruz won't do that. He has behaved magnificently. No reason to sully it now. He's done his duty.
You can read those Kindle books online. They are there waiting for you. They even know what page you were on.
He hasn’t officially asked in a consent yet to keep talking. But said he would ask for that. Durbin wanted to know what he was going to ask for in his unanimous consents. He’s only described the consents. So Harry could not say no yet because he hasn’t asked officially yet.
I don’t know, but we did have a never ending thread once that went over 65,000 posts.
After reading Mr Limbaugh's moving account of the Founders' sacrifices, he would place himself squarely in their company if he defied Harry Reid in 26 minutes.
Just mentioned that he will be "cut off by force" at noon.
SHUT UP HARRY!
Just saw a tweet from Herman Cain on #makeDCListen...supporting Cruz of course!
What a JERK Dingy is!! This IS a filibuster, you old fool!
Stinky Harry: This is not a fillibuster. Sheese!
These staffers are good at trying to cover for their bosses. I let them know I know what they’re doing and it’s getting old....I just want my senator to know how disappointed I am in him and there will be consequences in my support.
Cruz now thanking all those who have helped him during this filibuster.
Now Reid wants to be yielded to. This is not a filibuster according to Reid.
No, in usual Reid fashion, Reid just started speaking and interrupting Cruz.
Harry Reid want his butt-boy McConnel to hurry up and pass what Harry wants.
Will McConnell bend over?
God how I detest Harry Reid.
Ted knocking down Dirty Harry.
Screw you Dingy
