(Dr. Jerome R. Corsi) – This week, Tea Party Loyalists need to focus attention on assisting Texas Republican Congressman Steve Stockman in the March 4 U.S. Senate Republican Party primary where he is running against Senator John Cornyn who is currently serving as the Republican Whip in the U.S. Senate.
Here is the main point of strategy: Cornyn is facing seven challengers in addition to Stockman and if Cornyn fails to get a majority of 50 percent plus one vote in the primary, then Cornyn must face-off on May 27 against the second runner-up candidate in a runoff election.
In a head-on contest against Cornyn, Stockman will draw the type of funding that will give his campaign a viable chance of knocking John Cornyn out of the U.S. Senate.
Once Tea Party Loyalists understand Cornyn’s record in the Senate, replacing him with a Tea Party advocate like Steve Stockman becomes imperative.
Cornyn’s voting record in recent years qualifies him to be a RINO whose political persuasions are almost impossible to distinguish from the goals of the radical left Democratic Party exemplified by Senate Majority Leaders Harry Reid and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Consider the following:
Cornyn’s multiple votes to fund Obamacare have helped turn Planned Parenthood into a $2 billion abortion machine.
An amendment Cornyn added to Harry Reid’s “amnesty” immigration bill in the Senate was represented by the Senate Conservatives Fund as being nothing more than a fig leaf to cover Republicans by a subterfuge when in reality the Cornyn amendment will not require the Department of Homeland Security to certify the border with Mexico is secure before millions of immigrants currently in the United States illegally get put on a fast track to citizenship that will include the right to vote.
Cornyn, in backing the Democratic Plan for immigration reform passed by the Senate, did not demand to be built a single foot of the 700 miles of double-layer fencing voted into law by Congress in 2006 as the “Secure Fence Act” introduced by then Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter of San Diego.
Cornyn voted with the Republican leadership in the Senate to increase the debt limit for the Obama administration until March 2015.
Needing 60 votes, including 5 Republicans, Harry Reid held open the vote to suspend the debt limit for 45 minutes, giving time for Cornyn and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to vote “aye” simultaneously, so that neither could be held responsible for providing the Democrats the final Republican vote needed to allow President Obama to continue unimpeded on his multi-trillion-dollar deficit spending spree.
By siding with the Democrats in the Senate on suspending the debt limit, Cornyn knifing in the back Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz who had invoked the filibuster rule in an effort to force a 60-vote majority on suspending the debt limit, thinking that without the support of Senate Minority Leader McConnell and Republican Senate Whip John Cornyn the debt limit suspension would not pass.
As I stressed last week, Tea Party Loyalists have waited too long and too patiently for House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to embrace the conservative principles of small
government and reduced taxation so near and dear to the hearts of Tea Party Loyalists.
Now, it’s time for Boehner and McConnell to go, and they can take with them House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn, and Karl Rove.
Because Tea Party Loyalists are tired of being attacked and abused by the likes of Boehner, McConnell, Cantor, Cornyn, Rove and the other RINOs that control the Republican Party in Washington, D.C.
Instead of getting GOP leadership that understands the political concerns Tea Party loyalists have repeatedly expressed, what we get from Boehner, McConnell and Rove is more abuse and continuing ridicule.
It’s time to teach the GOP a lesson that the GOP cannot win elections without the active support and involvement of Tea Party Loyalists.
Tea Party Loyalists in Texas must mark your calendars to get yourself, you family members, and your friends to the Texas polls to vote for Representative Steve Stockman for U.S. Senate in the March 4 primary,
on election day or in the early voting prior to election day.
All we have to do to win in Texas on March 4 is to make sure John Cornyn does not get a majority of the vote, so we can force a one-on-one runoff between Cornyn and Stockman.
If the Texas senatorial contest goes to a runoff, the odds switch in favor of Steve Stockman.
Truthfully, the left-leaning mainstream media want Cornyn to be re-elected which is why mainstream media pundits have done everything possible to belittle Steve Stockman and trash his campaign.
We’re tired of Karl Rove’s pompous insistence the GOP must capitulate to the Democrats on key issues including immigration reform and the debt ceiling in order to win elections.
Karl Rove did not elect a single candidate he backed in 2012, despite spending some $400 million given to his various PACs by wealthy GOP donors.
It’s time to restore the Republican Party to the conservative principles that motivate Tea Party Loyalists to go to the polls.
Six more years of Cornyn in the Senate means six more years of Obamacare, six more years of runaway federal government spending with the federal debt headed toward $20 trillion, and the almost certainty Congress will pass “comprehensive reform immigration” legislation that amounts to nothing more than amnesty.
This week, let’s send a powerful message and a Tea Party flag to Washington.
The TeaParty.org “FAX A FLAG” campaign is designed to inundate House and Senate offices with the message “the Tea Party is Coming” and we intend to be on a collision course with all RINOs in the Republican
Party leadership, including John Cornyn.
It’s about time Congressmen like Steve Stockman who have a history of being faithful to the political concerns of Tea Party Loyalists get elected to the Senate.
Please join me in the “FAX A FLAG” campaign letting Washington know Tea Party Loyalists are determined to repeal Obamacare, to secure the border, to end the Obama socialist agenda by taking away the money the
federal government is counting on spending by once again raising the federal debt, an effort Cornyn is certain to champion.
Send all 100 Senators and 435 Members of the House of Representatives, 535 in total pages
for only $ 49.11. Circulate this editorial – make sure all Tea Party Loyalists in Texas read this and get motivated.
To Tea Party Loyalists, John Cornyn represents everything that is wrong with the GOP establishment in
It’s time to dump Cornyn and elect Steve Stockman to the U.S. Senate.
