10 Lessons #MakeDCListen Taught Us

Posted September 27, 2013

By Steve Deace

The ruling class is losing its cotton-picking minds, because it’s getting a long-overdue comeuppance from their employers they thought all along were really their subjects.

Whether it’s because of our nixing of their plans for another pointless Middle Eastern war, or our insistence they not foist Obamacare’s epic fail upon us while exempting themselves from it, the resulting ruling class conniption fits are coming fast and furious.

When even a few stand on principle it reveals the character of everyone else around them. And if the Obamacare filibuster begun by Ted Cruz and capably aided and abetted by Mike Lee (with others chipping in) ends up accomplishing nothing else, it has provided a searing spotlight on the character (or lack thereof) of their contemporaries and the system they’re fighting.

Here are 10 things that searing spotlight has revealed:


Mitch McConnell claims to be a conservative, but...


The Torch Should Pass From The McCains To The Cruzes

Posted September 27, 2013

Leadership: Sen. Ted Cruz's marathon filibuster against ObamaCare should be a turning point for the Republican Party. If its younger, non-establishment leaders don't take over, it could — disastrously — spell third party.

Sept. 24 and 25, 2013, should live in infamy for GOP McCainiacs. The subtext of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's 21-hour-long filibuster could be a paraphrase of JFK's inaugural address:

"The torch has been passed to a new generation of Republicans, unwilling to permit the slow undoing of the constitutional rights to which this nation has always been committed."

Where were "old guard" Senate Republicans as Cruz gave his heart on the Senate floor for nearly a full day? They were snoozing, counting the sheep they so closely identify with, instead of standing with Cruz and his allies, like Mike Lee of Utah, Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Jeff Sessions of Alabama.

Cruz wasn't long off the floor before Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a war hero, raised a white flag in one of the most disgraceful Senate speeches ever delivered.

Ted Cruz Reveals that the Republican Establishment Despise Their Own Base

Posted September 27, 2013

The Republicans have ignored the will of their own voters for a long time.  They ignored their base and ratcheted up the national debt under President Bush.  Instead of slinking away in disgrace for losing the base, Karl Rove is as powerful as ever, fighting Cruz from the pages of the Wall Street Journal and every TV station he can use to push the status quo.  The Republican elite has fought the base's desire to stop illegal immigration.  They were happy when the Tea Party revolution handed them control of the House in 2010, then turned around and bad-mouthed us as fanatics and incompetents who failed to also win the Senate.

Interestingly, Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus is one establishment leader who does get it, perhaps because he is the guy who has to get out the vote in the next election.  Priebus published a brief piece yesterday entitled "In a battle between Ted Cruz and Harry Reid, we must stand with Senator Cruz."  The Senate leadership is not listening.

Ted Cruz knows something the establishment doesn't.  The Tea Party is a genuine populist uprising.  This government isn't an elite tyranny yet.  People do have power when they pick up the phone or e-mail their senators and congressmen.
Commentators keep talking about Cruz not working with McConnell and Cornyn, as if he is a lone wolf.  Cruz is not a lone wolf.  He is a man of the people.

Cruz Leads the Reaganite Rebellion

Posted September 27, 2013

“This has been one of the strangest weeks I’ve ever had in Washington. As soon as we listed Ted Cruz as our featured guest this week, I got unsolicited research and questions, not from Democrats but from top Republicans, to hammer Cruz.”Host Chris Wallace on this week’s Fox News Sunday

This is a battle to save America and restore the Constitution.

A battle for liberty and freedom.

Call it “The Reaganite Rebellion” — a full blown show down between conservatives and liberals over the future of America.

So who do Republicans attack?

Why of course! Ted Cruz!

Cruzade: Defunding Effort Nearing 30 Votes in Senate

According to sources on the Hill, there is growing support among Senate Republicans to support Sens. Cruz and Lee's efforts to scuttle Sen. Harry Reid's attempt to reinstate ObamaCare funding in the House Continuing Resolution. On Friday, the Senate is set to vote for cloture on the CR, which, if successful, will then allow Reid to resurrect ObamaCare funding with a simple majority. The effort by Cruz and Lee will most likely fail, but each additional GOP Senator that joins their block is another vote against Senate GOP Leadership. 


Empower Texans Releases Their Fiscal Responsibility Index Rating Texas State Legislators

Empower Texans Must See Fiscal Responsibility Index RatingThe Fiscal Responsibility Index is a measurement of how lawmakers perform on size and role of government issues. Texans for Fiscal Responsibility uses exemplar votes on core budget and free enterprise issues that demonstrate legislators’ governing philosophy.

TEA Party 911 Editor's Note: This is an excellent tool to gauge how your State Representative or Senator rated on fiscal issues. An example is District 10 Representative Jim Pitts who rated an abysmal 29.7 out of a possible 100. If I was in District 10, I would be diligently seeking a replacement for Pitts.
