The Republican establishment prepares to wage war against Ted Cruz

June 9, 2014

  There is only one thing that the Republican establishment in Washington DC hates more than Barack Obama’s policies and that is those within the party who dare to challenge the status quo. (It is my opinion that the GOP establishment does not really oppose what the president is doing, they simply claim they do so they can run against him in the 2014 and 2016 elections. This is why they have basically done nothing but pay lip service to stopping him.)

  We have seen two blatant examples of this: First; John Boehner punished the conservatives in the Republican party for not going along to get along by removing them from influential committees. And second; Karl Rove created a Super PAC which was designed to protect the incumbent ruling class Republicans against any outside threat in the primaries.

  Now it is being reported that the ruling class Republicans in Washington are prepared to go to war against Ted Cruz because he will not fall in line with his Republican masters.

  Here is more:

Wall Street donors may stop giving money to him and groups that support him. Party leaders may take committee assignments away from the Texas senator who is revered by the conservative grassroots that put GOP leaders back in power. 

According to Time magazine, “now that primary season is almost over, some establishment Republicans are looking for retribution” against Cruz, who recently just crushed the Texas GOP presidential straw poll and has been calling out Obama for his lawlessness. Cruz has also held the Republican establishment, which lost control of the government last decade by spending like Democrats, to account. And they do not like him for doing so.

Kyle Downey, “a former GOP Senate leadership aide,” whined about how Cruz cannot be trusted because he did not actively campaign for moderate establishment Republican incumbents that the base loathes. Cruz also did not campaign against them either this election cycle, which is a concession Downey conveniently does not make. Time also quotes a “former GOP Senate leadership aide” who did not go on the record saying Cruz will “largely be marginalized” in the Senate like Jesse Helms.

  And this is only the beginning, there is more in the link I provided above, but suffice it to say; the leadership in the Republican party is not happy and now that the primaries are all but over the establishment is going to look at strengthening its stronghold on the party by stifling opposing views.

  The establishment Republicans have one thing in common with Barack Obama and the Democrats and it is a strong bond which they try to hide from the voters. In the end the establishment Republicans and Barack Obama are both part of the ruling class, they are in the same clique, and they will do whatever it takes to assure it stays that way.
