If the Shoe Fits…

On Senator Ted Cruz filibustering Hagel’s nomination to be defense secretary, The New York Slimes offered this:

Without naming names, Senator Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California, offered a biting label for the Texan’s accusatory crusade: McCarthyism.

“It was really reminiscent of a different time and place, when you said, ‘I have here in my pocket a speech you made on such and such a date,’ and, of course, nothing was in the pocket,” she said, a reference to Senator Joseph R. McCarthy’s pursuit of Communists in the 1950s. “It was reminiscent of some bad times.”

Ah yes, good times, good times, back when the right was right and communists were infiltrating society. Back when Comity was comedy. Yeah, those were some bad times for communists.

“He basically came out and made the accusation about money from North Korea or money from our enemies, and he just laid out there all of this accusatory verbiage without a shred of evidence,” said Senator Claire McCaskill, Democrat of Missouri. “In this country we had a terrible experience with innuendo and inference when Joe McCarthy hung out in the United States Senate, and I just think we have to be more careful.”

Senator McCaskill basically says Senator Cruz basically said something that people should be offended by. The only problem is Senator McCarthy was right.


That’s some comity gold, right there.


  1. Once again, Rebel M nails it. I saw this story in the Liberal Death Star, and I laughed out loud because, as most of you probably don’t know, this “Sen. Ted Cruz is Joe McCarthy” is an official meme on the 24/7 nuthouse, MS-NBC, starting yesterday. I think that they even have some little graphics for it. Their low-info voters probably couldn’t tell me who Alger Hiss is at gun point.

  2. Well let me add this, Cruz’s wife worked for megabank Goldman Sachs, who supports false flag operations and was the driving force among many 100 years ago in the creation in the dark of the GA night of THE FEDERAL RESERVE. I think of myself as a big picture Libertarian Constitutionalist Catholic.

  3. Heck, Bob, I support false flag operations. As for Mrs. Cruz working for a bank that was instrumental in creating the FED- you must realize that the Federal Reserve is a private corporation. Employment there is neither an act of nobility nor a cause for condemnation.

    I understand the underlying subterfuge that preceded the formation of the FED is questionable as well as the removal of constitutional coin in favor of fiat money. You have to realize Congresscritters only do one thing real well: Kick the can down the road.

    Now we have spent our way into questioning “the full faith and credit”. I’m not surprised that people are returning to gold and silver, I’m surprised it took so long.

    • Rebel, the problem is, this nation has been asleep for so long. But each and everytime they awaken to rise against the government, it imposes their will by means of attacks. Two words…OPERATION NORTHWOODS.

  4. Operation Northwoods was 50 years ago, Bob. I fail to see how a woman working at a bank that may have been involved in a Democrat President’s plot should be condemned for her employment there, fifty years after the fact.
