Looking for a Primary Opponent for Pledge Breaker Rep. Markwayne Mullin

We urge our conservative friends in Oklahoma Congressional District 2 to go back and read over what Rep. Markwayne Mullin said about why he voted to fund Obama’s illegal executive amnesty and then ask themselves if this is the kind of dupe. dope and liar they want to continue to represent them in Congress.

Rep. Martha Roby Admits We Are Right – Her Bill Does Not Stop Amnesty

It is indisputable that by voting for the "CRomnibus" Rep. Roby voted to fund Obama’s amnesty in its entirety through the end of February, when the DHS appropriation expires. Through the "CRomnibus" she voted to fund many, if not most, of Obama's amnesty processes for the rest of the fiscal year. Her bill, HR 31, does nothing except stop the future actions of one part of Obama's government-wide scheme to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

Thune: No Homeland Shutdown Over Exec. Amnesty

Allahpundit, Hot Air

Maybe Thune’s hinting that they’re only going to defund part of DHS in February, not the whole department. That makes sense politically, as “REPUBLICANS SHUT DOWN NAT'L SECURITY” headlines won’t fly for the GOP.

What We Told Breitbart About Obama's Amnesty and The New GOP Congress

There's growing evidence Capitol Hill GOP leaders have a three part strategy to cover their tracks by pretending to oppose Obama's unconstitutional amnesty for illegal aliens before they actually fund it and solidify it into law.

‘Cromnibus’ Effectively Ends U.S. Ban On Medical Marijuana

Arturo Garcia, Raw Story

Buried deep in the CRomnibus is a provision that bars federal agents from raiding medical marijuana retailers in the 32 states and the District of Columbia where the practice has been legalized. It also protects hemp farms in Colorado. 

The Cromnibus Aids Crony Capitalism

A. Barton Hinkle, Reason

Give far-left Democrat Elizabeth Warren credit when credit is due; she is right about the cronyism in the hated CRomnibus spending bill. The Cromnibus removes an important barrier to future taxpayer bailouts of big banks.

Dupe, Dope or Liar? Oklahoma GOP Rep. Markwayne Mullin Explains CRomnibus Support

The Unified Cruz Blame Theory Goes Up in Flames

Leon H. Wolf, Red State

Fact: The Cruz-Lee point of order bought Reid 10 hours worth of floor time on Sat. There's no way Reid would've let over 24 important nominees just die for the sake of going home Tues. instead of Weds. or Thurs. Stop blaming Cruz.

Bongino: Surrender the Party: Hell NO!

Dan Bongino, Conservative Review

The majority of GOP in Congress aren't committed to either fighting for liberty or economic conservatism. Some GOP power players would prefer to see a Dem in a House or Senate seat rather than a renegade Repub. But this is our party. We must fight back.

How Dumb Do The “Gruber Republicans” Behind The CRomnibus Think Voters Are?

Rep. Lynn Jenkins (KS-2) and Martha Roby (AL-2) are just plain lying about their votes on the "CRomnibus." But their constituents aren't buying it and conservatives should call them out, along with any other Republican who voted for the "CRomnibus."

Fighting Obama's Amnesty: Et Tu, Brute?

Jim DeMint, Daily Signal

Instead of focusing on O’s unlawful amnesty, some in the GOP went so far as to accuse Cruz and Lee of helping Reid confirm Obama's radical nominees. What Cruz & Lee did was stand up for those who are tired of the status quo.

Ted Cruz's attempt to force a vote on defunding O's exec. amnesty was the right move, says former OH state Treasurer & Sect. of State Ken Blackwell. "Cruz was right on target with his advancement of a strategy that would've stopped Obama's unconstitutional power grab in its track."

Ted Cruz Was Right, Again

Matthew Vadum, American Thinker

What really infuriates namby-pamby GOP senators is that Cruz forced them to take a public stand on the O's unilateral amnesty. They know that the GOP base is mad as hell over the amnesty, and they don't feel the need to answer to mere hoi polloi. 

Reid Could Ram Up to 88 Fed. Judges Through

PJ Tatler, PJ Media

Although the estab. talking points blame Ted Cruz & Mike Lee for Reid’s “opportunity” to get these nominations approved, it was always Reid’s plan to get as many through the system before control of the Sen. is turned over to the R's.

Ted Cruz Blasts DC as 'Corrupt'

Pete Kasperowicz, The Blaze

Sen. Ted Cruz blasted both political parties for quickly passing a huge $1.1 trillion spending bill that didn’t address GOP objections to Obama’s immigration move, and didn’t give anyone enough time to understand what was in the bill.

Cruz Refuses to Stand Down

Jesse Byrnes, The Hill

Cruz defended his efforts to delay the vote on the CRomnibus. “Leadership was angry. They didn't want to fight this fight now. Mike Lee & I thought it was important to get a vote now, to get the D's on record, & we hoped every Repub. on record against exec. amnesty."

The Purveyors of Ted Cruz Derangement Syndrome

Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ), and the other Senate Republican whiners about working on Saturday, are the same Republicans who have some of the worst records for opposing Obama’s nominees. 

Why Did GOP Pete Sessions Refuse to Allow a Vote on Mulvaney Amend.?
