Senator Ted Cruz Accuses Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Deceit and Lying During Senate Speech…

Multiple layers of deceit, deception and manipulation lay within this story.  In addition, the fundamental principles of the Decepticons in the Senate surface with increased clarity.

mcconnell-cornyn

The underlying issue is the Federal Surface Transportation Program commonly called “the Highway Bill”.  The Highway Bill is technically supposed to be a legislative tool to set priorities for the expenditure of tax revenue coming from federal gasoline taxes; roads, bridges, transportation systems – building and repairing as such.

However, as with all ‘revenue spending bills’, you find a bastardized special-interest process where more legislatures want spending on “their pet projects” than is available from the revenue raised within the tax collection.   Ergo immediately you can see the ingredients for corruption or what DC calls “sausage-making”.

Backroom deals, bribes, quid-pro-quo, lobbying schemes, booze – sex – blackmail and leverage, yep, back rubbing DC at it’s more traditional level.   Ultimately ending in more spending embedded in the authorizations than revenue raised by the taxes.  Yes, more, even more, deficit spending.

cornyn_graham_roberts_cochran_mcconnell_ap

The final product “Highway Bill” is, as a direct consequence, filled with more graft, pork, and ridiculous ‘bridge-to-nowhere’-type spending.

But wait, this is the GOPe we’re talking about here.

If Democrats can do structural scheme well, ie. Obamacare, the GOPe can do “future structural scheme” even better.

This bill is worse than usual because not only does McConnell’s Highway Bill contain deficit spending, McConnell’s Highway Bill actually contains structural future deficits (future spending well beyond possible gas tax revenues) that no President can block for at least six years.   A great summary is available HERE.

But wait, we ain’t done.  It gets worse:

[…]  In addition to the problems with the underlying bill, McConnell is showing his true colors with the amendment process.  While McConnell never passionately drives a narrative for conservatives on important policy issues, he has always championed an open process in the Senate.  That was McConnell’s raison d’etre.  Yet, he is continuing his pattern of blocking all conservative amendments while granting votes to liberal priorities.

This critical bill, regarded as “must-pass” by the political class, coincides with the period of time when Obama and his allies are implementing one radical transformational agenda item after another. What better vehicle to use for stopping at least one or two of his executive policies than the highway bill?  But McConnell will have none of that.  The one amendment he will allow for a vote?  Reauthorizing the crony Export-Import Bank – after it already expired!

McConnell refuses to allow amendments from his own party, but grants amendments from Democrats.  Well, more accurately a very specific Democrat amendment – the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank.

Who do you think that benefits?….

….. wait for it….

…..Wait for it:

tom donohue 4

Yup.  What do you know.  There’s that pesky Wall Street/Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue again.

But this time McConnell outdid himself.  Senator Ted Cruz was worried about the Import/Export Bank reauthorization; he and almost all conservatives do not support the crony capital spending and winner/loser selection within it.   So Ted Cruz asked Senate Leader Mitch McConnell if there was any possibility the disasterous reauthorization would find its way into the highway bill.

McConnell promised Cruz it would not.

    • Ted Cruz is neither inept or disillusioned. IMO – He knew full well that McConnell was lying, or he never would have broached that question to him, and never would have “held a discussion” with his staff following that particular session. All he was doing here was “taking the high road” so that he would not be accused of violating decorum. Which, in the end, he has been accused of, anyway.

      Yes, there may be good reasons to doubt the motivations of Ted Cruz, but to imply that he’s some sort of naive, fresh-faced babe-in-the-woods is totally off the mark.

          Yes, there is.

          But when you merely suspect something, you question that person in private.

          When you know something, you question that person in public (or in front of unimpeachable witnesses) to get them on the record. That is exactly what Cruz did.

Prior to the 2014 elections, Cruz stated (and Rand Paul agreed, as well) that he would not campaign for anyone who was running against an incumbent senator. Hence, Cruz did nothing to help candidates like Chris McDaniel in Mississippi to fight the GOPe machine. Many people, including myself, were very disappointed in Cruz.

      You may have known but I didn’t know exactly how it was done until I watched the entire video. I thought there was plenty which was new. We now know McConnell lies on the floor of congress – to his cohorts elected by the people – to accomplish his own personal underhanded dictatorial agenda and he’s also very accomplished at sidetracking the rest of the Senate to keep them from properly representing the people. He’s a traitor. Maybe some of them are as deep into it as he is and I fully expect that to be the case, but what he does, AS THE MAJORITY LEADER, using procedure to jerk the votes around and avoid discussion, is totally unacceptable.

      We knew he and Boehner didn’t represent the conservatives and was assisting the DemoRats but I didn’t know he was employing methods that were criminal. He is worse than Harry Reid. Since he lies to the senators in congress, and even lies when asked pointedly about any deals he has made, he deserves to be impeached.

      Now I’m really angry. And now I like Ted Cruz even more for “outing” McConnell on video.

    I blame Kentucky conservatives. They had a chance to vote out McConnell in the 2014 primary and refused to do what was necessary. Kentucky had the lowest primary turnout since 1938. McConnell ran against a conservative. McConnell is the status quo that most conservatives rail against. When it came time to change the status quo, they were nowhere to be found. They can offer all the excuses they want to, but every single Kentuckian who did not vote for McConnell’s opponent in the primary is responsible for this.

His father was born in Cuba and did not become a <naturalized Citizen of the United States until 2005. His mother was born in Wilmington, Delaware.

            Although all US Citizen are entitled to rights and protections under our constitutional government, there are constitutional restrictions to hold office based on citizenship category. A US Citizen is eligible to be Senator if they meet the other constitutional requirements. But only a b>natural born Citizen can be President under Article II.

              @jetstream: I totally agree with your position, and thank you for the links which support your stance very well; those links demonstrate clearly that a natural born citizen is a person born within a country to parents who are both citizens of that country.

              Unfortunately you are offering truthful, factual information. In a society that honored truth, justice and the rule of law, that would be all that’s necessary to prove your case.

              That has no place in our modern society; now we go by sneers, lies, and sheer brazen fraud. Obama’s supposed birth certificate’s a fraud? No problemo! Just sneer at anyone questioning it, call them a “birther” and state that they are nuts! Proof? Who needs proof, just say “That’s been debunked!” when questioned, and never give a link to the actual debunking (since that didn’t actually happen.)

              Nowadays we have trials where evidence doesn’t matter; facts don’t matter; truth certainly doesn’t matter; and we all know it. The Supreme Clowns, in their stylish black gowns, vote in blocks (ah, but don’t notice that, it isn’t polite) while “discovering” law buried in penumbras from the emanations of the bullschit that they peddle!

              I’d really like to be able to count on facts, and truth, and rationality to determine justice. Sadly, that isn’t what we have today, and what we may never have again, if we continue down the same path we’re on.

                It matters not that justice is temporarily subverted. The truth will out, and justice will eventually be served. As to those insecure bullies demanding lockstep conformity to lies, they deserve not a bit of attention. Don’t be bothered by their juvenile sneers.

                Every day the number of people like yourself grows. We will never, ever, ever give up demanding the truth or that the Constitution be honored. So keep the faith and keep spreading the word – be relentless.

    if you are still in the GOP holding out some kind of hope for change among the leadership you will be sorely disappointed forever. Look at all the dirty tricks just this week alone and it never stops. Everything is a trick or a ruse. They think you people on this site are stupid or clowns or crazies….. Imagine how confused they are to offend the thinking informed segment of their base. They are hell bent with a rebel yell straight over the cliff. We should be the ones directing them which way to go. We could regroup and may lose 2016 but electing Jeb and Columba is losing… and more destruction to this country. Trying to primary them or call their offices won’t work they have burrowed under the skin.

      I think you’re right fred. It is still early though, let’s keeping hoping and praying most of us get the message Donald Trump is sending, with leadership skills like his, he would cleanse America the correct way. No more dirty politics, imagine the fresh air of no corruption.. .ah God Bless America Again.

    I kinda wish Iran would just nuke all these MFs. Maybe the Lord could anoint someone to get the 10 decent people out of DC before the fire rains down, but that’s about all I think we could get out of that putrid swamp.

    If Republicans lose to Conservatives they are out of power and out of work. If Republicans lose to Democrats, they are simply in the minority – but they are still there.

    Glad to see that Trump’s style is wearing off on Cruz! Cruz finally brave enough to call McConnell out!
    So glad that Trump and Cruz are friends. A one-two punch 🙂

      You haven’t read his book yet? He’s been telling the truth for a long time. I don’t see any similarities in style but do think a mutual respect is a good thing. Cruz will not disparage any Republican candidate, and I find that refreshing.

        Trump had Ted Cruz in a head lock I’m sure that’s what I saw in the photo Sun Dance posted earlier, lol. I used to get head locked like that by my older brother. Trump is 6′ 3″. He came in third in military cadet school and didn’t have much use for LBJ’s war where 58,000 of America’s most able bodied men were misled and massacred in swamp and bug infested Vietnam. LBJ thought he was Eisenhower in WWII. He was finally ready to depart when the war ended, thank goodness for America that LBJ didn’t take him too.

        Cruz is too inexperienced and young. He has a lot more character to build before I’ll give him a chance at the country. He hasn’t proven himself except be an Ivy League grad, and this is not enough credentials. He can talk and write, but Bari could too. Too much excuse-making after he’s botched it. Prevention is the best medicine.

        The photo-ops handing out cheap teddy bears made probably in China alongside Beck was amateur.

    What does it take for them to elect a new majority leader? Seems like if he’s that fired up at the turtle he could get the other senators to elect a new majority leader. There was a time when folks would lose their position when caught in a bald faced lie.

    • That’s an interesting development. Just recently Ted Cruz had announced that he was one of the few candidates who received the vast majority of his campaign contributions from “Grass Roots” donors.

      While this still might technically remain the case (since this donation is to a Super-Pac and not directly to the Cruz campaign AND it’s money that didn’t come through K-Street) it does take some of the luster from Cruz’s claim to be funded by “the little guy”

      Either way, I’m still happy to see Cruz is getting financial support for what is certain to be one of the costliest races in US history.

    Everyone please note that the “conservative” sites Hot Air, Twitchy, TownHall, American Thinker and especially National Review have given either light or zero coverage to Cruz’s speech accusing the GOP leadership of craven cronyism and Mitch MoConnell of lying.

    I used to be a regular visitor to those sites but now it is obvious that the corrupt Establishment has co-opted or intimidated these outfits from covering Cruz’s speech. Sad, but true.
