104,000 Strong: Tea Party Patriots Have Record Turnout for Cruz on Tele-Townhall


By Gary P Jackson

Think the American people aren’t behind Senator Ted Cruz and his efforts to stop ObamaCare?

Stephen K Bannon of Breitbart reports Senator Cruz’s latest tele-townhall broke all previous records for participation:

The Tea Party Patriots blew away expectations at last night’s tele-townhall on the Continuing Resolution with 104,000 participants for Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK).

The previous record for an event was three weeks ago when 67,000 participants attended. TPP Co-founder Jenny Beth Martin stated, “no special measures were taken to draw the crowd—only the standard Facebook post for two hours and a robocall earlier in the day.

The pupose of the tele-townhall was to get TPP members up to date on the latest developments in the ongoing battle to defund Obamacare. It was the TPP’s rallies during the congressional recess in August that drove interest in the current hard-line strategy.

Senator Cruz laid out a series of action items that grassroots activists could take on a daily basis to stop Obamacare. These measures included everything from signing petitions to doing blog and Facebook posts. Cruz emphasized the importance of citizens talking to their neighbors about Obamacare and enlisting more people around the country to join the movement to stop its implementation. Of particular note was his call for TPP members to get the word out on the special Obamcare exemption for Congress.

Calls were taken from the participants, and several veterans expressed the importance of getting veterans to join the group. Rep. Bridenstine , a former fighter pilot, expressed his frustration with House Democrats in clocking a rule change that would allow funding of the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Tea Party Patriot officials believe the intensity of emotions to continue the fight against Obamacare will carry through the upcoming debt ceiling negotiations. Martin noted that the tele-townhall four weeks ago drew over 50,000 participants, and active engagement by grassroots is building with each passing day.

    He seems to be the only one to stand for less spending. We need more that do what vthey say before getting elected, not like most if not all in Congress.

      Indeed! The old guard Republicans are attacking him as hard as the democrats. Us Texans sent Ted Cruz to DC to do a job, and he’s getting it done! He’s learning like Sarah Palin did, that BOTH parties are corrupt and it’s an uphill battle

        I hate to say this Gary but you know as well as I do that the Birchers have been saying this for years. And, why they did not like Ron Paul or Larry McDonald. They like no one who is different and think different. Why Ventura said to get rid of both parties and I agree.

        Jessie Ventura, I don’t think a nastier, more evil human being ever walked the earth. Besides being an Alex Jones clone, a loon, that a-hole is suing Chris Kyle’s WIDOW. That’s pretty damned low.

        Sorry but just seeing his name sends me into a rage!

        Both parties ARE morally and intellectually bankrupt. I think that’s why Americans get so excited and energized when leaders like Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin and of course, Ronald Reagan, emerge.

        It’s almost impossible to start a new and viable party because BOTH parties have conspired to make it so. May also be impossible to take over the GOP. We all need to find a way out of this, or America is done.

    What a coup for Ted Cruz, something else of which is guaranteed to make the Progressive establishment on both the left and the right foam at their mouths like the rabid dogs they are.

      Ted Cruz is working hard, doing exactly what us Texans sent him up there to do. Who says nice guys can’t finish first!
