Catch up mode…
Let it not be said that we fail to follow through.
Outlined below is part of the video from a 19 minute segment Megyn Kelly ran on her show allowing Glenn Beck to launch an attack against Donald Trump without any push-back.
The entire “interview” (actually a one-way diatribe) was targeted to a Fox audience that has not, and does not, pay attention to political comings and goings 24/7/365; in essence, the casual political follower.
There is a lot of misinformation in that entire exposition; but one very specific part of the misinformation that needs to be showcased, and, as luck would have it, exists within our archives – because of the intense importance the moment provided in understanding what was going on in DC.
More specifically, this is part of the accountability we promised in 2009/2010 when we campaigned for and financially supported the Tea Party Candidates.
The original Tea Party patriots, grassroots, supported Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. Many people in the past several months have asked when we discovered that Cruz was a fraud. We have repeatedly outlined a very specific time frame when Ted Cruz’s “pivot point” was identified.
In this video (prompted to @03:10) you hear Glenn Beck mention when and why he gave up on Rand Paul. Beck claims he became disgusted with the Senator when he made a deal with Mitch McConnell. You only need to see about 30 seconds of it to understand. Watch:
Glenn Beck then goes on to say the deal with Mitch is why he dropped support for Rand Paul and yet supports Ted Cruz.
Here’s the problem….
Actually, here’s the lie…
Senator Rand Paul and Senator Ted Cruz made the same deal, together, at exactly the same time.
Stop – Repeat !
“The deal”, as Beck describes it, was actually real – and did actually take place. The deal was to go along with Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell’s overall objectives, electoral objectives AND legislative objectives, as the GOP entered into the 2014 mid-term election cycle.
The deal, which few were tracking at the time, was a deal made just before the legislative Christmas holiday and just after congress returned the following year. “The Deal” was made in December 2013 and January 2014.
Both Senator Rand Paul and Senator Ted Cruz agreed with congressional leadership (McConnell) to go along with the GOP leadership’s electoral/legislative priorities. That was the deal.
Here is an important, but again overlooked, video which took place on January 29th 2014 which discusses the current state of Capitol Hill, the state of the union and the upcoming mid-term elections. Watch the whole video if desired -OR- just skip to @15:46.
Both Rand Paul and Ted Cruz agreed to stay out of the mid-term elections for incumbents at the request of Mitch McConnell.
Remember, this agreement is the set up to the Mississippi fiasco of 2014 with Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel. The agreement gave both Rand Paul and Ted Cruz leadership approvals for their 2016 presidential race.
Glenn Beck chooses to remember Rand Paul, but conveniently chooses to forget Ted Cruz cut the EXACT SAME deal.
BACK-STABBING LAP DOGS – When Rand Paul was running for Senator in Kentucky 2010 the GOP machine and Mitch McConnell supported the other guy in the primary, Trey Grayson.
What Mitch McConnell does not want people to know: Trey Grayson is now the head of Democrat Gabby Giffords SuperPac – He works with Robert Reich, Bill Clinton’s former Labor Secretary:
Trey Grayson, the former Kentucky secretary of state and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2010, is running a political action committee formed by former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords that will try to elect Democrats who want to work with Republicans. (link)
When Ted Cruz was running for Senate in Texas 2012, Mitch McConnell supported the other guy in the primary, David Dewhurst.
Cruz’s resurgence was surprising for many reasons. Dewhurst, the current lieutenant governor, has the support of the state’s powerful Republican establishment, including Gov. Rick Perry — himself a Tea Party figurehead. Dewhurst has outspent Cruz nearly 3-to-1, even though major outside groups like FreedomWorks have backed Cruz. Dewhurst also had the benefit of a large personal fortune to aid him. (link)
Both Ted Cruz and Rand Paul were strongly supported by the Tea Party, and would not have won without the support from the grass roots. We rose up against their adversaries in the GOPe, and specifically Mitch McConnell.
However, in 2014, when they were needed most -especially in Kentucky- they choose to align with McConnell and stand on the sidelines. Obviously, in order to reconcile his advocacy in 2016 Glenn Beck needs to overlook one participant in that “Deal With McConnell”.
But wait, yes, it gets better….
…. Or, much worse, depending on how you look at it.
Yes, we actually follow stuff this closely. Even if we don’t write about every scintilla of activity, you can be guar-an-damn-teed we log it for later reference. For exact moments like this when the truth, and the liars, needs to be revealed.
Remember the 2014 Mississippi Primary Fraud?
Here’s is a video/audio you must ABSOLUTELY listen to, in order to understand what’s going on today – AND – how radio host Mark Levin has been covering for Senator Ted Cruz for more than just a couple of months.
Listen, it is well worth a few minutes of your time. Listen to it all.
You’ll note in the interview that Senator Ted Cruz seems to express disgust and outrage at the tactics being deployed by what he calls the “DC Machine”.
Senator Cruz states the campaign conduct in the Mississippi runoff was “incredibly disappointing” etc. and even goes on to say an investigation is warranted.
Eventually, we found out who paid for those racist attack ads, and who paid for the phone calls, and who paid for the Democrats to come out and support Thad Cochran in the Mississippi primary runoff.
Oh, we found out alright.
It was the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) FEC Filing LINK
The NRSC, the actual Republican Party itself, was funding racist attack ads against it’s own party candidate, Chris McDaniel, in the runoff primary race.
Gobsmackingly UNREAL !
And… who do you think was in leadership of that NRSC making those decisions?
Any Questions ?
…. or do you believe the “I didn’t know”?
…. after all, he didn’t know he was a Canadian Citizen either; well, until fifteen months ago?
Quid Pro Quo ?
