Posted on 09/25/2013 9:06:06 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
When Peter King is going to give you a sound bite, he lets you know ahead of time, so as not to insult your intelligence or, for that matter, waste your time if youre not that interested in the details.
But please, stay for the footnotes.
Here is Mr. King, a Republican congressman who represents Long Island, speaking on Tuesday afternoon about Ted Cruz, the Republican senator from Texas, who is bringing the federal government to the brink of a shutdown because he wants to cut all the money for President Obamas health care plan.
My sound bite is to say hes a fraud, Mr. King said. I start with that, and then I go on. It takes me two or three minutes to explain it.
Jumping ahead to that third minute, Mr. King said precisely what he thought of the Cruz tactic: It is just a form of governmental terrorism.

More than one look at all the RINOS, Gramnesty, Alexander, Corker, Snowe, Collins and more I forget.
Sen Ted Cruz has spent 18 hrs trying to stop O’care
His DC line going straight to filled voice mail, but they are answering the phone at his office in
San Antonio Office Phone: (210) 340-2885 PLEASE CALL AND THANK HIM!
whatever happened to Reagans’ eleventh commandment?
“thou shalt never speak ill of another republican”
Thanks Gail. Will do...
Peter King's sound bite is simply a small dropping from human excrement.
Get off his back, Peter!!
The New York Times will carry water for ANY Republican willing to trash another Republican.
Ever notice how they don’t do that for dems?
Peter King I a terrorist loving piece of dung. He supported the IRA terrorists and wants to arm Al Qaeda in Syria. He supports perjury by members of the ruling political class, and hates the Second and Fourth Amendments.
King aspires to be scum!
"It's not worth the fight" - Peter King
Just another turd from the cesspool called Washington DC. By the way, DC, Definitely Corrupt!
“It also struck Mr. King as an unprincipled attempt to change the law without consent of the voters.”
When was the consent of the voters given to pass this Albatross of a law? Okay Mr. King, let’s put this abomination on hold and let the people speak through a special election. I would rather we spend the money to let the people decide whether or not they want this bloated obamanation then just have it rammed down our throats as the unworkable piece of feces it is.
King is a pussy and a traitor! Using constitutional means to end ObamaCare is wrong to him!
Texas should cut off all pipelines to NY this winter and see if we can cool this hot-head off. Time for some hard ball from the exploited colonies in the South and Southwest.
I guess Peter King’s method to oppose Obama’s policies is to roll over and play dead. Also to walk around wearing a kick-me sign.
That only works for conservatives.....for the RINOs it has been and always will be open season on conservatives.
He's always reminded me of a Chicago union thug..
I think King is worse than a surrender monkey. I see him as a Vichy French Republican collaborator, like Marshal Petain or the French whores who befriended German occupiers.
I’m straining to remember why I used to admire and respect King so much. Well, that’s all gone now. He has officially become one of The Olde Guard, the crumbling kremlin like monoliths who must be ignored and passed by.
doesn’t matter what state you are from Cruz is protecting ALL of us from the NO AFFORDABLE CARE ACT!
Google him and you will find other cities where he has offices, they are polite and love to hear from you. I kind of think a lot of people are calling in to say thanks, so just try another office, DC will be impossible.
It ‘s time for P. King to rethink his position on Sen. Cruz.
And keep council with Himself.
I watched Ted Cruz during his valiant effort to halt the disaster called Obamacare. I hope you watched it as well. If he has used it once, he used the phrase “...we no longer listen to the people, our constituents...” over a hundred times. And he was right...they don’t. And the fact is, THEY NO LONGER NEED TO.
I’ve sent my little rant on this topic before but Ted’s honest comment compels me to do so again.
WHY THE POLITICAL RULING CLASS NO LONGER LISTENS TO US!
Among others, Thomas Jefferson warned that the financial disaster we now face would be but one of many problems paper money would visit upon us if we allowed our leaders to remove the backing from the currency, to wit:
When the servants if the people are paid with something other than that which the people themselves have produced (i.e. the real, tangible products of their labors or some fixed and real medium of that exchange), the roles of master and servant will be reversed.
It was believed by Roger Sherman and a majority of those at the Constitutional Convention that un-backed currency would so damage the fabric of the nation that they ATTEMPTED to prohibit it with these few words at Article 1, Section 10, requiring the states to enforce the prohibition: No State shall make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;
If the people and their states grew inattentive to this matter (and they have!), Jefferson also saw this problem ahead:
In a letter to John Taylor in 1816, he wrote, “And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”
We have been swindling futurity for a long time and this is now where we find ourselves. If the government, through its banker masters at the Federal Reserve, can create money from thin air, they certainly dont need ours every April 15th. That annual sheep shearing is simply an attempt to vacuum enough of the excess paper from the system to keep the rest of us from catching on to the biggest theft ring in the history of man. They have now created so much that their attempt is failing and failing badly to a point where all but the dullest among us (Obama voters and his growing cadres of personal and corporate welfare beneficiaries) are starting to get it.
If you understood that last paragraph, you can now make the small leap to an understanding as to why the progressive utopian welfare state hacks in Washington dont give a damn WHAT you think. Their power to create all the money they need to fuel their infernal machine and fill the gaping maws of enough of those hoards of welfare constituents to assure their perpetual re-election means that — ready — THEY NO LONGER NEED YOU! They have become, as Mr. Jefferson predicted, our MASTERS.
That they are taking down a nation and a system that has provided more wealth, safety and abundance to more people than any other in history matters not to them. Failing to grasp the lesson of the French Revolution, they believe themselves to be above the impending disaster.
Were running out of time to get this increasingly rapacious beast back into the cage from which we have carelessly allowed it to escape.
