Breitbart Exclusive: McConnell, Cornyn Whipping Votes Against Ted Cruz

A source in Congress tells Breitbart News that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn are using their leadership positions to pressure other Republicans to oppose Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his campaign to defund Obamacare.

"Right now in the Senate, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are actively whipping Senators to shut down debate on the House continuing resolution so that Harry Reid can gut it with just 51 votes,” a senior congressional staffer with intimate knowledge of the situation said in an email to Breitbart News. “Unbelievably, they actually are leading the fight to fully fund Obamacare.”

McConnell and Cornyn stated earlier Monday that they oppose a possible filibuster from Cruz to keep Reid from adding language funding the Affordable Care Act to the continuing resolution passed by the House of Representatives.

Puppets being forced to expose

Their strings. What happened to DEM vs REPUG.? Looks like they have their pants down. Then the election cycle they will get up and say how much they hate anything democrate and vow to remove that Obama care.

Liars running around lieing to each other hoping that somone will watch and that some watching will still believe them.

Soon they will just ignore the puppet show and become dictators on stage. Oh thats happening already.


Big mistake Mitch McConnell,

Big mistake Mitch McConnell, big mistake!

I think the biggest mistake

made by the GOP is to keep calling this scam Obamacare! Obama is a puppet Manchurian Candidate who had nothing to do with this scam, and is a lame duck. Continuing to use this against Obama doesn't really do anything to effect the direction we are headed. If the GOP really wanted to make a difference they would change the name to 'Democare', because it was they who were behind its creation. But, since we have a government of collectivists, they stay with this game of charades, letting the Dems off the hook. Most GOP members don't want to end this hoax, they only want to change it so their 'special interests' groups benefit, instead of those who back the democrats. When are people going to figure out we don't have a government to represent us, and turn their focus on their state government and force them to use the 'nulification' clause to stand for 10th Amendment rights. We aren't going to change the federal game who are dominated by corporate money to people who only care about power, control, and greed!

Two L's in nullification

excellent point



I like CorporateCare or

I like CorporateCare or Corp-Care better.


of the absurd

Cruz is a fraud. All of this

Cruz is a fraud. All of this is staged.

Really? Tell me more.

I wonder how much...

I wonder how much influence (by blackmail) the NSA has in the outcome of this or another vote. Has the outcome already been decided ?


Breitbart is stuck in left/right paradigm. I can't stand it.

I looked at the comments below the Breitbart article, and this one from "john copper" was thoroughly down-voted and "awaiting moderation":

This all is just showboating. They are acting like this is the fight of the century. They would never get 60 votes to defund, and Obama would veto. Why is the media covering a stalemate? Both sides and the media know this is going nowhere. They are trying to keep the public distracted so something slips by. It will be in the "Deal" that is made that cuts something to fund Obama Care. The Devils in the details.

The poster was attacked for being a progressive troll. Ironically, Breitbart is dead set on keeping everyone locked on this fake fight over Obamacare. The above quoted comment is true. Cruz is making a name for himself show boating. Our so-called representatives have NO INTENTION of actually getting rid of Obamacare. This is just like the debt ceiling fight. It is not really a fight. Both sides want it, and they don't care if the public is opposed. As I have said before, the only way that Obamacare is going away is through a national bankruptcy or a coup d'etat.

Ronald Regan made a name for himself by promising to abolish the unconstitutional Department of Education if elected in 1980. How did that work out for we the people?

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Rubio supporting Cruz..

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Tuesday told Breitbart News that he will buck McConnell, Cornyn and Reid, and supports the position of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).


I dont have much trust for

I dont have much trust for cruz, but thats not why i comment, i comment because all i see here, in this example of "government", is congress representing CONGRESS......i.e. there is NO representation, just a minority whose heads are to small for their ego's in assuming the power to dictate the will of the people......there is NO representation, i dont think they even know HOW, or they believe chaos would ensue otherwise, that they know better, i.e. A DIC-TA-TER-SHIP.....it wouldnt be so bad (very bad still), if they didnt make a conciense effort to attempt to fool people into thinking its anything, BUT.....i.e. the illussion or as im starting to think, illussions

“Unbelievably, they actually are leading the fight to fully...

...fund Obamacare," says a SENIOR CONGRESSIONAL STAFFER.

Really, the Repubs are "actually" promoting the same agenda as the democrats? Wow. What a surprise!

I wonder how many times this staffer will have to see this type of "working together in harmony" to destroy Freedom and the Constitution for him/her to wake the hell up?!

So they start showing their

So they start showing their true colors now huh? Don't want their democrat handlers to say anything bad about them.

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

Good movie

But I hate the ending where people are suckered into voting for Ted Cruz cause the establishment sold him as a liberty guy. Obamacare will never get defunded, Ted Cruz will look like a "tea party"/libertarian leader, and they will ignore Rand Paul just like they did his dad, which has already begun.

egapele's picture

Agreed - proceed with caution on Cruz

He was endorsed by George P. Bush in his Senate race and that can never be good.

July 12, 2011
George P. endorses Cruz
George P. Bush, the nephew of former President George W. Bush, has picked a horse in the race for U.S. Senate.
Ted Cruz' campaign announced today that Bush is endorsing the former Texas Solicitor General to take over Kay Bailey Hutchison's U.S. Senate seat.
'Ted is the future of the Republican Party,' Bush said in a statement. 'He is a proven conservative, and his personal story embodies the American Dream. Like Marco Rubio in Florida, I am confident that Ted will inspire a new generation of leaders to stand up and defend American Exceptionalism.'



The neo-libertarians are coming. Is Cruz one?

Perhaps you forgot this post


Really, I don't care if Cruz is the second coming of Satan. If he's doing what is right and what is constitutional then I'm good with it. Further, if not Cruz then who do you think is going to fight this crap? So-called republicans are selling out left right and center as their masters crack the whips?

Further, I'd sure hope that it would take more than a single endorsement to override the good Cruz has done so far.

Finally, if Bush had backed Ron Paul would you have dropped him in the last election?

Nice find! And other infiltrators in our movement.

A key strategy of the authoritarian, criminal cabal is to infiltrate movements. It does appear that Ted Cruz very well could be an infiltrator.

Other recent infiltrators (IMHO):

1) Mitt Romney (to lead Mormons astray and lead conservatives from Ron Paul).
2) Harry Reid (another Mormon wolf in sheep's clothing, though I'm not sure of the effect of mainstream Mormonism following him.)
3) Glenn Beck (not to keep pointing out Mormon infiltrators, but I do believe Beck is the BEST example of infiltration in the Mormon Church. He's a convert, and yet he's Skull and Bones and ALWAYS avoids exposing the New World Order/ Fed Reserve banking cartel which are the real shadow government).
4) Jesse Benton (it appears he was an infiltrator. He married a granddaughter of Ron Paul, and then leveraged Ron's love of family to wiggle his way into a key leadership position where he ably sabotaged Ron's campaign).
5) Ted Cruz I think has been sent by the Establishment to thwart Rand's bid for the 2016 Republican nomination). Ted is another wolf in sheep's clothing, it appears. Ted may be the best yet, rivaling or surpassing the long-prepared and patient Mitt Romney. All Mitt had going for him was he was a good family man, a "good Mormon," but his policies spoke for themselves and exposed him. He trampled the Constitution by his ACTS, and rarely spoke in favor of the Constitution and Liberty. On the other hand, Ted's speeches overflow with praise for the Constitution, and he is actually DOING some good things, but he supports perpetual war and that has become the litmus test for whether one is REAL or not. That AND actions that demonstrates a fidelity to the Constitution.

I knew Beck was a shill infiltrator, but he really is Skull and Bones? how do you know?

Go to YouTube and...

...search "glenn beck skull and bones".

There are several videos that will pop up.

The main thing about Beck is that he is constantly providing cover for the Fed Reserve System's New World Order. He nips at them, but never goes remotely far enough to expose their true criminal agenda. All the while attacking those who DO expose their nefarious schemes.

Well put

A pupet show brought to you by the cheif counterfiters of false debt in the world. Your gona love the ending.

Ps I will not be watching the evil puppet show. Ill be watching my freedom. Thats what the whole puppet show is about. while the audience (humanity) is terriorized, hearded in this diriction and that by the puppets in the puppet show the phyco zio extortionists, liars, thieves, and mass murderers disperse among the audience. Stealing each and every humans individual freedom.

Its a leaderless revolution because every decent leader that stands up is taken down by coruption, death, duplication by doppleganger puppets (as you describe the above) then lead off the cliff in some hiligan diagalectic box with only 2 choices and both become the same one.

So leaderless does not mean alone. Just means every person is the leader.

Using enlightened disengagement as the best option (best to not give much attention to the puppet show it gives them unwarranted power they do not deserve) GhandI, Jesus, both used enlightened disengagement in a leaderless revoluton and won. This false debt slave system will end soon to the great advantage of humanity.

Once a critical mass of individuals reject and choose a new system humanity will follow like a great sucking sound the Roth Zio era will end.


don't agree

The Democrats in texas were pushing hard on trying to make Cruz endorse Cornyn as the majority leader if he ran.

Cruz would not make any commitments to endorsing Cornyn.

Cruz may have just smoked Cornyn out enough to get him primaried without betraying "TEH PARTY" rules of not going after incumbents.


I didn't know that,

that's encouraging. Cornyn was definitely bloodied today. Maybe Cruz will turn out to be his own man, and true to the humble family story he likes to tell.

Your love for Rand Paul sickens me

Betrayer. You can gloss it over I wont. Rand is n o never.
You realy think Rand is any better. His handlers Mitch McConnel and Johny McLaim. Oh lets not forget his love for Mitt Romney.

These guys all love IzUnReal more than the USA. Its a joke a puppet fight. These guys are puffing up and making noise as if they have anything to say. But the reality is they play their scripts like good puppets or go home.
