Establishment Hacks Line Up for Cruz Apology

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s been reported that the old guard of establishment Republicans have asked Ted Cruz to be the one to mend fences in order to garner their support. Some might rather call them the senior statesmen of the GOP. Well, they are definitely “senior,” but hardly “statesmen.”

It was first reported by CNN this past Tuesday, roughly two weeks after Senator John Cornyn called Cruz following his UUGE victory in Texas on March 1st, to broach the topic of Cruz speaking to the Senate GOP Conference for calling out Mitch McConnell as the lying sack of **** that he is.

Does anyone else find it odd that we’re just hearing about this now and that it appeared to be leaked to CNN and not some conservative journal? I’m just asking.

Could it be that they waited until Super-Duper Tuesday, wanting first to see how the candidates fared? Could one then surmise that the thinking of the establishment, to make this public, may now be that they have some leverage against Cruz to fall in line in order to win their backing and thus the nomination? This kind of thinking I would not put past them, for surely this is what any one of them would do. After one sells his or her soul, what’s a little apology. read more

I thought it fascinating that the left made such a fuss over something which, to us conservatives, appears so obvious. At first I thought they were just saying how wrong Carson was out of hatred for the right and political correctness.

So I started outlining some of the glaring disparities between Constitutional conservatism and Islam’s Sharia law. As I wrote, it donned on me that there is a third category – liberalism/progressivism/statism – however you wish to classify it. And I discovered something quite interesting. Liberalism is closer to Sharia than it is to Constitutional conservatism.
