Ann Coulter: Cruz Only Won Wisconsin By Flip-Flopping To Trumpian Immigration Patriotism
Congratulations to Ted Cruz for winning his fourth primary! Usually Donald Trump wins the primaries—where you go and vote, like in a real election. Cruz wins the caucuses—run by the state parties, favored by political operators and cheaters.
Until now, the only primaries Cruz has won are in Texas (his home state), Oklahoma (basically the same state) and Idaho (where Trump never campaigned).
So now, Cruz has finally won an honest-to-goodness primary. This is great news for him, provided: (1) the general election is a caucus, and (2) the national media universally denounce Cruz’s Democratic opponent the same way the Wisconsin media denounced Trump.
In that case, Cruz should do fine.
The Cruz-bots don’t care. They don’t care that they’re being used as a cat’s-paw by the Never Trump crowd, and that a brokered Republican convention is more likely to end with Bernie as the nominee than Cruz.
The Cruz cultists don’t even care about plain honesty, which I always thought was a conservative value. Republicans used to be appalled by guttersnipe, lying political operators like the Clintons. Now they are guttersnipe, lying political operators like the Clintons.
Cruz has flipped to Trump’s side on every important political issue of this campaign—which only ARE issues because of Trump. These are:
These are all positions Cruz has changed since being a senator—most of them he’s flipped on only in the last year. I’m supposed to believe that U.S. senators can sincerely change their minds about policies it was their job to know about, but a New York developer can never change his mind about pop-offs he made more than a decade ago.
Back in 1999—17 years ago—when Donald Trump was considering a presidential run on the Reform Party ticket, he said this when asked about abortion by Tim Russert on “Meet the Press”: “Well, look, I’m very pro-choice. I hate the concept of abortion. I hate it. I hate everything it stands for. I cringe when I listen to people debating the subject. But you still—I just believe in choice.”
Russert then asked him specifically if he’d ban partial-birth abortion. Trump said, “No. I am pro-choice in every respect and as far as it goes, but I just hate it.”
A year later, Trump wrote in his book The America We Deserve: “When Tim Russert asked me on ‘Meet the Press’ if I would ban partial-birth abortion, my pro-choice instincts led me to say no. After the show, I consulted two doctors I respect and, upon learning more about this procedure, I have concluded that I would indeed support a ban.”
Sometime in the intervening 16 years, Trump became fully pro-life.
You can say you don’t believe him—just as you might say you don’t believe Cruz has truly changed his mind on amnesty, the wall, or the Trans-Pacific Partnership, etc. But to claim Trump is pro-choice today—present tense—is what’s known as a “lie.”
But that’s what Cruz says over and over again, including in a campaign ad—and not one of those “super PAC” ads that count even less than a retweet. A Cruz ad plays the clip from that 1999 interview where Trump says, “I am pro-choice in every respect,” repeats it three times, and then cuts to a narrator proclaiming: “For partial-birth abortion, not a conservative.”
These are the kinds of lies that used to drive conservatives crazy when the Clintons did it. Not anymore. All’s fair in smearing Trump.
Trump has said a million times that he’d scrap Obamacare and replace it with a free market system (which, by the way, he explains a lot more clearly than Washington policy wonks with their think-tank lingo). Merely for Trump saying that we’re “not going to let people die, sitting in the middle of a street in any city in this country,” Cruz accuses him of supporting “Bernie Sanders-style medicine.”
Yes, because Trump is against people dying in the streets, Cruz says that Trump thinks “Obamacare didn’t go far enough and we need to expand it to put the government in charge of our health care, in charge of our relationship with our doctors.”
Over and over again, Cruz has repeated this insane lie, telling Fox’s Megyn Kelly: “If you want to see Bernie Sanders-style socialized medicine, Donald Trump is your guy.”
Trump’s alleged support for the kind of national health care they have in Scotland and Canada is another big fat lie. Trump was issuing his usual effusive praise before he drops the hammer—”It actually works incredibly well in Scotland. Some people think it really works in Canada.” Then he continued, in the very same sentence: “I don’t think it would work as well here. What has to happen—I like the concept of private enterprise coming in. … You have to create competition.”
Cruz and his cult-like followers lie about Trump wanting a health care system akin to Canada’s and Scotland’s. They lie about his supporting Obamacare. They lie about his supporting partial-birth abortion. They lie about his ever having been a Democrat. They lie about his campaign manager assaulting a female reporter.
I tried being nice after Florida, when it became clear that Trump was the choice of a majority of Republican voters, nearly choking on a column praising Cruz for his admirable flip-flops to Trump’s positions on immigration and trade. I censored loads of anti-Cruz retweets. But—as with the Clintons—you offer these Cruz-bots an olive branch and they bite off your hand.
The next thing I knew, the Cruz cult was accusing Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of criminal battery for brushing past a female reporter. Anyone who claims this video shows a “battery” is as big a liarwith as the liberals who lined up to say Clinton did not commit perjury when he denied having “sexual relations” with Monica Lewinsky.
If James Carville and Paul Begala had a baby, it would be a Cruz supporter.
They lie about my own tweaking of Trump—I didn’t like the Heidi retweet!—amid a tidal wave of support. Trump is the only presidential candidate in my lifetime who will build a wall, deport illegals and pause the importation of Muslims. He’s the only one who cares more about ordinary Americans than he does about globalist plutocrats. Does anyone really think I’m “tiring” of him because of a retweet?
Apparently, for slavishly devoted Cruz-bots, a normal human making a small criticism of her preferred candidate is unfathomable! That fact alone proves how dishonest they are about their own candidate.
I was under the misimpression that I was dealing with adults and not swine like Carville and Begala, willing to twist someone’s words to win a momentary political advantage. Mostly, I was under the misimpression that honesty was still a conservative value.

Law Center Issues Threat to Cruz: Quit by the 17th & Admit You’re a Fraud – Or We will Expose You as One
The North American Law Center has issued an ultimatum to the Ted Cruz campaign: "If Ted continues on – we are going to release the files we have, two weeks from tonight, and we will bury Ted Cruz forever in American politics."
So, what has the NALC up in arms? The same thing that has bothered Americans since Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah usurped the office of President: Ineligibility.
J. B. Williams, the co-founder of The North American Law Center said on April 3, 2016, "We're talking about American citizens (who) think a guy who's Canadian-born is eligible to be a U.S. president – without any documentation whatsoever. If Ted continues on – we are going to release the files we have, two weeks from tonight, and we will bury Ted Cruz forever in American politics… If we have to stop this guy from defrauding this nation, then we are going to do that."
Consider that the only documents we have actually been privy to are the documents that Mr. Cruz has provided, namely his birth certificate and his revocation of Canadian citizenship, which did not occur until mid-2014. That's it. In fact, according to the NALC, "…there is no evidence to suggest that the parent or parents of Ted Cruz ever filed a CRBA form with the U.S. Government in or around 1970, which is why Ted Cruz released a copy of his Canadian citizenship records and not any U.S. citizenship records."
"At present, all FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests filed in search of any U.S. citizenship documents to confirm the true official U.S. citizenship status of Ted Cruz have been denied access," Williams added. "All citizenship records for Ted Cruz are sealed unless and until Ted Cruz agrees to allow any such records to be released by either U.S. or Canadian agencies. As a result, there remains no authentic evidence to support the claims that Ted Cruz is either a 'natural born' or 'naturalized' citizen of the United States." (Emphasis mine)
"Without any form of U.S. Citizenship documentation, and proof of Canadian citizenship at birth in 1970 and holding that legal status until May 2014 when he renounced his birth citizenship to Canada, there is no way for Ted Cruz to prove that he is either 'natural born' and eligible for the Oval Office, or 'naturalized' prior to 2012, when he sought and accepted a seat in the U.S. Senate as a legal citizen of Canada," Williams concluded.
I tend to agree with this assessment, as I've pointed out before in documenting the natural born citizen issue, specifically with Senator Cruz. One can't simply claim to be a natural born citizen without evidence of such a claim.
The NALC is merely remaining consistent in its approach to the natural born citizenship issue, as I have been, regarding Obama. In fact, the NALC continues to push the very body, which constitutionally is to determine who is a natural born citizen, to impeach Obama. They have also taken issue with whether or not Cruz is even legally in the US Senate and whether he is even a legal citizen of the US.
I honestly don't know of any new information bomb that could be dropped on the 17th that would "bury" Ted Cruz, except possibly evidence of recent allegations of adultery by the Texas senator and why he will not simply answer the one question that has been put forth to him regarding those allegations rather than let a political rival, (FIORINA) whom he paid $500,000 to her Super PAC, answer for him. I mean, NALC has admitted that
Cruz's record as sealed and that they can't get FOIA requests fulfilled.
I find the sealing of records most interesting, considering that Cruz was demanding to see Donald Trump's tax returns. After all, Cruz has called for the abolition of the IRS, which I'm all in favor of. However, why is it not a big deal when we are seeking to vet whether a man is who he says he is and he seals his records? Should they not be open to the public? Should we not be able to request them and vet his claims for ourselves? All attempts to do so have met with similar responses to that of Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah.
In that vein, probably the best question that could be asked of Ted Cruz at this point in time was offered by commentator Bill Still. He asked, "Why have you sealed your birth records?"
In what was definitely not a surprising result, Ted Cruz took top spot in the Wisconsin primary. Donald Trump was in second place and John Kasich in third.
As a result, Cruz got 36 more delegates, Trump another 6, and Kasich didn’t get any at all.
The way it works in Wisconsin for Republicans is that 24 delegates are assigned by each of 8 congressional districts on a winner-take-all basis and an additional 18 are assigned to whoever wins the most votes in the state. Trump won two districts, which is why he was awarded 6 delegates.
On the delegate total scoreboard this means that Donald Trump is still well ahead with 743 delegates, Cruz has 517, Rubio 171 and Kasich has 143.
The War Is Far From Over
But the big result from the Wisconsin primary is that it makes the magic total of 1,237 delegates that little bit more difficult for Donald Trump to achieve before July’s convention.
Taking the positives from yesterday, it is unlikely that Donald Trump will go into future primaries with so many prominent state people lined up against him.
Also the next primary, on April 19th, is in Trump’s home state of New York where he leads his rivals by something in the region of 30 percentage points.
Trump also still leads nationally and in two of the biggest remaining battlegrounds of California and Pennsylvania.
A small battle may have been lost, but the war is far from over.
It is time for every Trump supporter, especially those in the states still to vote, to redouble their efforts to ensure that every possible vote is mobilized.
How Things Have Changed
Finally, it is worth reflecting that if a result like Wisconsin had happened a few months ago we would probably have called it an overwhelming victory for the non-establishment candidates.
But how things have changed.
Although he likes to promote the idea that he is a true conservative anti-establishment candidate, Cruz is actually doing exactly what the establishment needs – helping to keep Trump from taking the nomination before the convention.
Is he just blinded by the delusion that he can beat Donald Trump and win the most delegates, or is he really part of the establishment after all and just trying to hoodwink the voters?
Time will tell.
But unless Cruz has done a deal with the establishment – and there is little to suggest that they would honor it even if he has – he will find that at the convention they will drop him like a proverbial hot potato when their “party savior” arrives.
So who won Wisconsin?
Looks like the establishment did.
Let’s hope they don’t win any more.
Presidential Hopeful Named In Murdered D.C. Madam’s Black Book, Investigators Charge
Embattled White House candidate Ted Cruz‘s cheating scandal is set to explode wide-open, with fresh — and blockbuster — allegations that the married conservative senator was named in the black book of a notorious Washington D.C. madam who mysteriously died, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Montgomery Blair Sibley, a former lawyer for madam Deborah Palfrey, has filed a dramatic appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court for permission to publish her unconventional “black book,” which consists of some 15,000 pages of phone records and calls to clients, as well as their calls requesting the $300-an-hour services from her gaggle of beautiful hookers!
Sibley told The National ENQUIRER that “time is of the essence” to release the list because one or more of the phone numbers would provide bombshell information that is “relevant to voters before they cast their ballot.”
He currently is barred by a lower court order from releasing the records or naming names.
But Radar has learned The National ENQUIRER will this week report its findings of yet another exhaustive and investigative probe that will quote journalist detectives who claim the mystery candidate almost certainly “has to be Cruz.”
Investigator Wayne Madsen, who was on a team of reporters hired by Hustler Magazine’s boisterous owner Larry Flynt to investigate the madam, told The ENQUIRER that Cruz should be concerned!
“If Montgomery Sibley has what he says he has, it has to be Cruz,” he said in an interview — an advance copy of which was provided to Radar.
“Going on what I know about the other male candidates still in the race, it isn’t any of them, and Palfrey didn’t provide call boys, so it wasn’t Hillary.”
Before a restraining order was slapped on the records, Sibley said he supplied copies of the papers from three of the four boxes to Dan Moldea, another Washington investigative reporter who interviewed the madam for a possible book after she was busted for prostitution in 2006.
Moldea plodded through the records but only 815 of the numbers had names attached to them. Some had nothing to do with Palfrey’s business, and none were presidential candidates.
“There were hundreds and hundreds more pages, just with phone numbers,” Moldea told The ENQUIRER.
He reversed some of the numbers. “I’ve thrown (the list of) names in the shredder but I would remember if Bernie Sanders or Trump or John Kasich were in the list,” he said. “The only name I would not have recognized at the time was Cruz.”
Sibley had his law license suspended for three years in 2008 for being a “vexatious litigant.” But Moldea insisted, “If he has information, you’ve got to take him seriously. He was (Palfrey’s) best friend.”
The lawyer hand-delivered his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court in late March.
“The footnote to the pleading I filed … says this: If I do not get the right to file my request to modify the restraining order and if I do not get an expedited hearing, I’m going to publicly release those records and see what happens,” Sibley said after making the filing.
“If they want to hold me in contempt of court for violating an order they will not give me a hearing on, I think they lose the right to enforce that order.”
By not promptly scheduling a hearing, he charged, the courts are “letting people vote blindly.”
He told The ENQUIRER, “The essence of what we are talking about is people have something to hide and a judiciary that is actively working to maintain the current state of affairs through outright criminal methods.”
Sibley previously represented Palfrey when she was busted in 2006 for prostitution. During the investigation, U.S. Senator David Vitter, a Republican from Louisiana, was outed as one her clients.
On May 2, 2008, 52-year-old Palfrey was found dead with braided twine around her neck in her mother’s shed in Tarpon Springs, Florida, according to the Medical Examiner’s report obtained by The ENQUIRER.
The report indicates that she had bruises on her lower legs, right knee, right forearm and upper arm — but her death was ruled a suicide. Sibley said he suspects foul play, however.
The ENQUIRER is due to hit newsstands nationwide on Wednesday, its publisher told Radar.
I used to be a Dennis Prager listener; but during this election cycle, he has shown himself to be a NEO CON / RNC ESTABLISHMENT OPERATIVE. In his most recent article on REAL CLEAR POLITICS, he asks this question regarding DONALD TRUMP: HE'S MEAN, BUT IS HE AT LEAST BRIGHT?
The gist of the article is to BAG ON TRUMP and diminsh his "conservative credentials" and intelligence. For Prager to insinuate TRUMP is a simpleton is ludicrous considering TRUMP'S accomplishments in the world of business. It is no small feat to create an 8 BILLION DOLLAR EMPIRE, especially in Real Estate. Not to mention his accomplishments in the POLITICAL REALM, which have no precedent.
There is absolutely no logical reason for Prager to write such a nonsensical article other than to perform his duty as a JUDAS GOAT.
On radio PRAGER sounds like a conservative, but in reality, he is leading his conservative listeners off the cliff, so to speak. He plays the part of a conservative to lure listeners in the direction of the NEO CON agenda. "Trump isn't a conservative" goes the mantra! But this begs the question: What good is a conservative candidate who won't cut through the years of obfuscation by career politicians and address the pressing issues facing our country?
TRUMP is the ONLY CANDIDATE that will do anything about the MOST SERIOUS PROBLEMS facing America.
He wants to end illegal immigration. He doesn't want to slow it down or spend months / years crafting a new immigration policy to disguise what it really is: AMNESTY. He wants to shut down the border and ENFORCE EXISTING IMMIGRATION LAW. He wants to let the BORDER PATROL do their job. Why is this controversial?
Why does the GOP establishment continue to pursue an OPEN BORDERS agenda that will eventually disenfranchise the party in future elections? Answer: MONEY! The GOP establishment is owned by the OPEN BORDERS / GLOBALISTS!!!
Now contrast this to TED CRUZ; His idea of being TOUGH on illegals is giving them TEDDY BEARS and SOCCER BALLS with his good buddy GLENN BECK. This is not an exaggeration, they actually did this idiotic deed. This act alone should make one shudder at the idea of a CRUZ presidency.
CRUZ wants to create a PATH to CITIZENSHIP for the ILLEGALS. This is double speak in the political world. A PATH to CITIZENSHIP means AMNESTY. We have a path to citizenship already on the law books. It is LEGAL IMMIGRATION. However, our politicians RIGHT and LEFT, are OWNED by OPEN BORDERS, special interest groups. This includes the "outsider" TED CRUZ. CRUZ and company have no interest or incentive to close the border and address ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Their pay check from the special interests lobby is tied directly to keeping the border open!
One the other hand, TRUMP is owned by no one. He is his own man. He is not beholden to any OPEN BORDERS group. This contrast between CRUZ and TRUMP is striking to say the least. Why anyone would vote for candidate CRUZ after knowing that he is nothing but a puppet of the OPEN BORDERS lobby, is beyond logic.
Does anyone remember the disastrous presidency of GEORGE W. BUSH? This is why we have OBAMA. G.W. wrecked the economy and got us into several wars that cost us much blood and treasure. In addition, he was an OPEN BORDERS politician. During the next election cycle after BUSH, most blue collar republicans / Reagan democrats stayed home rather than vote for another "BUSHMAN" or the Democrat candidate, OBAMA. So now we have CRUZ. Another "BUSHMAN", and the "STUPID PARTY" wants to run him rather than TRUMP against HILLARY.
TRUMP has energized the electoral base that won REAGAN the presidency in the Eighties. No candidate since Reagan has accomplished this feat. Instead of capitalizing on the TRUMP phenomenon, the RNC / OPEN BORDERS / NEO CON ESTABLISHMENT wants to attack TRUMP and demoralize his supporters. No wonder they call the GOP, THE STUPID PARTY.
How can CRUZ or any republican candidate call themselves a "conservative" when they are weak on immigration?
How can you be a "law and order" political party, as republicans claim, when you support OPEN BORDERS?
Open borders are a facilitator of TERRORISM and VIOLENT CRIME in our country. How can you claim to be conservative when you don't support the main candidate who has identified his candidacy with BUILDING A WALL and CLOSING THE BORDER, DONALD TRUMP?
The "back and forth" between TRUMP and CRUZ is striking for one reason. It shows the ORWELLIAN double speak of the media, LEFT and RIGHT. It shows how talk show hosts such as DENNIS PRAGER and BILL MAHER collude to sabotage the TRUMP campaign. It shows the power of the GLOBALIST AGENDA. Their ability to get LEFT and RIGHT to agree on their OPEN BORDERS policy shows their overreaching hand in politics. These SPECIAL INTEREST groups have created a ONE PARTY system. DONALD TRUMP is a threat to their hegemony. That is why he MUST BE STOPPED.
DUMP TRUMP / RICH LOWRY / MEGYN KELLY / FOX NEWS / HERITAGE FOUNDATION, ETC. want you to believe their main objection to TRUMP is his lack of "conservative values". How can you claim a monopoly on "conservative values" when you supported candidates such as JOHN MCCAIN, MITT ROMNEY, MARCO RUBIO and JEB BUSH? How can you claim to be "conservative" when you support OPEN BORDERS?
If you want a litmus test for "conservative" candidates then make it a simple one:
"Are you for OPEN BORDERS?"
If you get a bunch of DOUBLE SPEAK; PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP, IMMIGRATION REFORM, COMPASSIONATE CONSERVATISM, FREE MARKET MUMBO JUMBO, ETC., then you know you are dealing with a LIBERAL or worse, in conservative trappings.
TRUMP is clear on his conservatism, he has been for 30 years or more.
He wants to CLOSE THE BORDER, BUILD A WALL and DEPORT ILLEGAL ALIENS starting with the criminals in prison. It doesn't get any more CONSERVATIVE or LAW AND ORDER than this.
If TRUMP only accomplishes one thing as president, CLOSING THE BORDER WILL BE ENOUGH.
This alone will solve many of the problems facing our country today. In addition, it will slow down the SOCIALIST / NWO / GLOBALIST AGENDA.
TRUMP is the ONLY CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT!
DENNIS PRAGER asked the question: HE'S MEAN, BUT IS HE AT LEAST BRIGHT?
I would pose the question differently: IS THE GOP ESTABLISHMENT STUPID OR JUST PLAIN NUTS?
NOTICE: Andrew Breitbart is not channeling from the grave. He has been DEAD for four years, and a world of disclosures and events have happened since then.
Anything that Andrew Breitbart has to say, was in a context of 20 percent of the knowledge we hold four years later.
Those people who paid his WIDOW for the rights to his brand name and the name Breitbart Dot Com - are NOW the mind behind the name.
Who is that mind, who is NOW behind the Breitbart Brand Name? He is the Open Borders, Globalist, Hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer.
When you see the name Breitbart, you MUST erase from your mind Andrew, who was our hero, who we all loved, and replace it with the image of this man. This Open Borders, Globalist, Hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer, who OWNS Ted Cruz.
Note: This Robert Mercer owns the company that is running the Mind Manipulation Operation on Ted Cruz Supporters.
If you believe that Ted Cruz is an "outsider" why is he surrounded by these people?
Attention Christian Conservatives who have been fooled by Edwardo Ted Cruz.
The NeoCon/CIA/Media tells you that Ted Cruz is an "outsider," and Ted tells you he is a "Restorer of the Constitution." Is it true?
Ted Cruz's "uncomfortable advisors."
The chairman of Cruz’s foreign policy team is:
Chad Sweet. Chad Sweet is the Former Directorate of Operations for the CIA, the Former Chief of Staff for the Department of Homeland Security, and the Co-Founder and CEO of The Chertoff Group. Chad Sweet went into the world of big banking — from Investment Banker at Morgan Stanley to VP with Goldman Sachs. (The same post Mrs Heidi Cruz holds) He would then work for the Department of Homeland Security in the Bush Administration. Sweet co-founded the Chertoff Group with former Bush and Obama administration, Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff.
Hardly the pedigree of an outsider. In fact, his neocon bona fides could not be better.
As a leader of the Chertoff Group, Sweet “advocated for expanding NSA metadata collection.” Again, this belies Ted Cruz’s public position on the NSA’s unconstitutional surveillance of Americans.
“One of the most troubling things we have seen in recent years is an expansion of federal government authority into surveilling American citizens. I am proud to be a co-sponsor of the USA Freedom Act," Cruz said during a speech in Austin in November 2014.
Despite such public declarations, it is little wonder that a key member of the Cruz foreign policy team would support dragnet surveillance of Americans given that one of the principals of the Chertoff Group is General Michael Hayden, director of the NSA until 2005.
These sorts of hypocritical inconsistencies have destroyed other campaigns, particularly those of candidates who fly the flag of the Constitution as proudly as Ted Cruz, while surrounding himself with enemies of the Constitution.
When it comes to ending the federal government’s collection of personal data on millions of Americans in direct contravention of the Fourth Amendment, it seems Ted Cruz’s lips draw nigh to the Bill of Rights, but his heart (and his personally chosen counselors) are far from it.
Ted Cruz’s neocon inner circle includes, Victoria Coates. As is the case with Chad Sweet, Coates’s connections with the NeoCon elite are strong and numerous. From Infogram’s bio:
[Having served as director of research for former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, and as an adjunct fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Coates has a track record of supporting a neoconservative foreign policy. In 2012, she was an adviser to Rick Perry, whose campaign was in support of sending troops back into Iraq.]
This record of rubbing shoulders with a who’s who of neocon luminaries cannot be comfortable for the constitutionalist wing of the Cruz camp. Somehow, most Ted Cruz Fans do not know about it, and when confronted with the facts, they don't believe them.
THINK! Coates is no neocon neophyte. Her record reveals that she’s a true believer in the neocon doctrine of using the U.S. military to spread democracy around the world. And as we know the so-called spread of Democracy is code for genocide and chaos, conquest and control.
In 1979, Jeanne Kirkpatrick wrote an essay called “Dictatorships And Double Standards” where the Reagan administration official equated Reagan-era support for anti-communist dictators with the promotion of human rights.
Daily Beast reported in July 2014 that Victoria Coates “asks interns to read that essay when they start working for [Senator Cruz].”
On his campaign website, Ted Cruz promises to “restore our Constitution” and to follow the Founders in looking to the Constitution “to act as chains to bind the mischief of government.”
One would imagine that restoring the Constitution and being bound by its chains would include not using the U.S. military to topple governments — no matter how tyrannical — or to funnel funds from taxpayers to the coffers of the “moderate” extremists who declare their allegiance to the American side in foreign conflicts.
Someone committed to that constitutional tack would certainly not choose neocon interventionists with the resumés of Chad Sweet and Victoria Coates. But Wait THERE IS MORE!
Ted Cruz's NeoCon inner circle includes, Cruz’s foreign policy advisor, James Woolsey, a player who would be drafted in the first round by any neocon fantasy team owner.
The Infogram bio is enough evidence to convict Woolsey of being NeoCon to the core:
[Woolsey was a national security specialist and former Director of the CIA under the Clinton administration. He heads up many Neoconservative groups including being the Chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and Founding Member of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.]
More than just academic advocacy of the military-industrial complex and the global deployment of American troops to "spread democracy" (chaos and genocide) on the world, Woolsey has no problem putting the noose around those who act against the growth and power of the government.
In a December 2013 interview with Fox News, Woolsey made the following shocking statement when asked about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden: “I think giving him amnesty is idiotic,” Woolsey said. “He should be prosecuted for treason. If convicted by a jury of his peers, he should be hanged by his neck until he is dead.”
That’s not just think-tank rhetoric, that’s reign-of-terror-type talk.
REMEMBER, the CIA Media says that Ted Cruz is an "outsider" and Cruz himself claims that he is some sort of "restorer of the U.S. Constitution." How can this be when he has surrounded himself with NeoCon, CIA and NSA WONKS.
BUT WAIT, THERE IS MORE!
Ted Cruz's NeoCon inner circle includes his choice of Elliot Abrams to help craft his foreign policy. Like his colleagues on Cruz’s council, Abrams is a leader in the NeoCon world, and leader of what is perhaps the most powerful and pernicious group in the NeoCon network, the grand daddy of all the NeoCon GLOBALIST Organizations: the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
While Cruz pooh poohs the idea that he has ties to the Council on Foreign Relations, just because his wife Heidi Cruz was a member and co-authored the Blue Print for the creation of the North American Union. Who does he select as his foreign policy adviser but the HEAD of the Council on Foreign Relations!
Not all Christian Conservatives are stupid, so if you are not, do not be offended and do not add yourself to the context of the next sentence. Dumb Christian Conservatives, DO YOU SEE ANY INCONSISTENCY HERE? Any hypocrisy? Smart Christian Conservatives HAVE TO, stupid Christian Conservatives have an IDOL called Ted Cruz and they REFUSE to see.
While the CFR is the most notorious of the associations of Abrams, it isn’t the only one. He is also a member (or former member) of the Center for Security Policy, Hudson Institute, National Endowment for Democracy, and many more. BTW the National Endowment for Democracy is a DIRECT Front organization of the CIA. It is a NGO, owned by the Democrat Party, and funded by the U.S. Government on behalf of CIA operations all around the world.
It is likely that it is because of the membership of Abrams in the CFR that George W. Bush chose him to be his deputy national security adviser for Global Democratic Strategy and that Ted Cruz has chosen to follow his advice on questions of foreign policy.
In fact, it is probably the experience of all these people that compelled Ted Cruz to choose them to be his closest advisors. The problem isn’t that his inner circle is composed of men and women of vast foreign policy experience; the problem is that their experience is in growing government, supporting surveillance, and using American troops as globalist soldiers of conquest. The TRUTH is and the problem is, Ted Cruz has surrounded himself with NeoCons because he is a NeoCon.
As constitutionalists know, each of these endeavors, pursued over and over by Cruz’s chosen advisors is unconstitutional and not at all consistent with Ted Cruz’s public statements.
What is the attraction of Ted Cruz to Christian Conservatives? The attraction is strongest with Evangelicals in particular. Why? It is because of their own religious bondage. They hear Ted's Father preach in the common rhetoric of Evangelicalism, they ignore his Dominionist Cultic words, or dismiss them as a little forgivable hyperbole. They listen to Ted Cruz "Thump the Constitution" in the familiar way a Fundamentalist Christian "Thumps the Bible" using familiar passages to comfort and control. The attraction to Ted Cruz is nothing short of the exposure of their own religious bondage, it is pure mesmerism, devoid of REASON.
This "Religious Bondage" also clouds their view of Ben Carson (another cultist) and Mike Huckabee, who parades as a conservative, who has been anything but. Oh yes, he has been consistently pro-life, but there is not another conservative issue where he has not capitulated. Yet, he is a "pastor" and speaks in familiar religious Rhetoric. Yes, it is called Mesmerism.
In summary: Who is Ted Cruz, really?
Ted Cruz, a career politician with some pretty strange close connections. AS an adult, when he wasn't getting a government check he was working for the NeoCons in private practice. He was mentored by Paul Weyrich, a CIA asset and head of MANY CIA front organizations, a father of the NeoCon movement and one of the founders of the Christian Dominionist Cult, (which Ted's Father belongs to). At one time Paul Weyrich ran 17 of these organizations out of one office on K-Street. Ted Cruz's wife, Hedi, as a member of the infamous Globalist Organization the Council on Foreign Relations wrote the blue print for the North American Union, called, "Toward a Greater, North American Community." Don't let the title fool you, it is for the creation of a Politburo Style governing body over a BORDER-LESS Mexico, U.S. and Canada, un-elected, and answerable to no one, like the E.U. Politburo . . I mean "Parliament," something which Joseph Stalin would be proud.
Cruz political operatives will claim to you, that Heidi Cruz wrote a dissenting part of that North American Union (NAU) Blue Print, but I've read it and there is no dissent in it.
We know that the Christian Dominionist cult was created by Paul Weyrich and the CIA. We know Ted Cruz's father is a "believer" in the tenets of this cult since there is ample video out there with Papa Cruz preaching Dominionist Heresy. In this cult Ted Cruz has been "Anointed to Be King." (their language not mine.) Another item that ties Cruz to this cult is that two Texas Billionaires who are "Dominionists" just donated 15 million dollars to Ted Cruz's Campaign.
It is indubitable that these three, are different Puppets of the same NeoCon Cabal that has destroyed our Republic.
(Puppets of the SAME Criminals. Ted and Heidi Cruz - Council on Foreign Relations, Goldman Sachs, etc., etc., etc.)
Ted Cruz says that Donald Trump supporters will soon follow him when Trump's campaign implodes . . . . that will be the day! You NeoCon, lying SOB.
Does it all seem confusing to you? It really shouldn't be.
Donald Trump is Mounting a COUNTER-REVOLUTION!
He is running against the Globalist Elite that own the Republican and Democrat Parties,
and own the Media, that own all the Spin Doctors.
He is running against the establishment that controls the six corporations that own the T.V. and Radio Media, all of the major news papers and most of the small so-called independent newspapers, and 99 percent of the publishing houses; The Elite that Own and Control the Federal Reserve, and all the Western Central Banks that have held our economy hostage to their New World Order Agenda, that have literally plunged our nation into generational debt to finance their WORLD CONQUEST AGENDA, while robbing us of Constitutional Governance, and relegated our children and Grand Children to debt slavery in a quasi-Marxist Poverty State.
This ELECTION is between Donald Trump and the Globalist Criminals that control every aspect of our Government, every NGO that is pushing a Globalist agenda, from the Rockefeller Foundation, and the likes of George Soros, UNESCO to USAID.
You need to FOCUS and decide, whether or not you want another Globalist Puppet of the Elite, or an America FIRST Nationalist, with a 30 plus year history of advocating an America FIRST Agenda.
LETTERS FROM THE GULAG
Ted Cruz, the junior Senator from Texas and presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is routinely billed by the mainstream media as a Tea Party outsider who is reviled by fellow Republicans as a “wacko bird” along with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and GOP Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan.
It is not simply his wife’s connection to Goldman Sachs and investment banking or his unreported loan from the multinational investment banking firm, however, that betrays this image.
A closer look at Cruz reveals he is a neocon insider, not a renegade outsider.
His campaign manager, Chad C. Sweet, co-founded the Chertoff Group with former Bush and Obama administration Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. Sweet, as a leader of the Chertoff Group, “advocated for expanding NSA metadata collection,” according to his bio on the risk-management and security consulting company’s webpage:
“Mr. Sweet formerly served as the Chief of Staff of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Prior to becoming Chief of Staff of DHS, Mr. Sweet worked as an investment banker at the firms of Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs as well as served in the CIA’s National Clandestine Service,” the bio continues.
Cruz’s foreign policy advisor is the notorious neocon James Woolsey, the former director of the CIA during the Clinton administration. Woolsey is connected to the now largely defunct Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a think tank with an agenda formulated by top neocons William Kristol and Robert Kagan. PNAC was at the forefront of the Bush administration push to invade Iraq. He is a former vice president of the defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and an advocate of the neocon hardline on Iran.
Ted’s foreign policy team includes Elliot Abrams, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and the son-in-law of Norman Podhoretz, a trailblazing neoconservative ideologue. Abrams was a key adviser on Mideast policy at the National Security Council (NSC) during the George W. Bush presidency and also a staunch advocate of the Iraq invasion, the hardline on Iran and military strikes against the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
Finally, a volunteer working in public relations for the Cruz campaign, Dan P. Gabriel, is a former CIA covert action officer and a founding partner of Applied Memetics, a company “focused solely on developing engineered influence for clients seeking to alter their tactical or strategic operational environments,”
The company specializes in propagating memes that ”can move through the cultural sociosphere in a manner similar to the contagious behavior of a virus,” in other words Applied Memetics specializes in propaganda.
The latest Cruz meme is working hard to convince followers of Rand Paul, who dropped out of the race in the wake of the Iowa caucus, that Cruz “is the natural inheritor of the modern libertarian movement built by Ron Paul, which was especially resonant here in New Hampshire, where the elder Paul won second place four years ago,” CNN reports.
“Cruz’s entreaties appear to be paying off. A number of state legislators—in places ranging from here in New Hampshire to the Paul family’s Texas—signed onto the Cruz team.”
Ted Cruz is not even remotely a libertarian. He is a neocon masquerading as a champion of liberty. If nominated and elected he will continue the forever war agenda initiated by the Bush regime and further expand the high-tech surveillance police state.
Unfortunately many Republicans, desperate to beat Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in November, are buying into the illusion.
Their delusions swarm unabated.
All the political experts and professional politicians here in the beating heart of the federal Leviathan are still stuck in denial over the unstoppable electoral sensation that is Donald Trump.
‘But he is a crook, a con-man, a cheesy huckster!’
He doesn’t understand that proper politicians are never supposed to actually say the truth. That’s what they call a “gaffe,” a “blunder,” a “slip-of-the-tongue.”
Always best to just put out a statement. “Walk it back,” they call it. Express regret.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Mr. Trump is the Big Bad Wolf and with one puff he has blown away all their silly houses made of straw or feathers or whatever fraudulent materials these people dwell among.
Worse yet, they say, there is solid, incontrovertible proof that he is a liar and a con artist and aims to pull off a great swindle against the American people.
The problem, of course, is that all of this comes from the very people who have already pulled off the greatest swindles in the history of mankind. Not since the Garden of Eden have mortals been exposed to such evil and thievery as this government allows, encourages or flat-out perpetrates.
“Look at Trump University!” they squeal.
People supposedly went into hock for worthless degrees. Hmmm, sound familiar? Talk to any college grads lately still living with their parents who owe tens of thousands of dollars to a federally accredited university and no job?
Or better yet, consider Social Security:
It currently collects about $780 billion a year from workers, disbursing about $850 billion to retirees. It piles up $70 billion in losses each year and the gap keeps widening.
Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme took in about $20 billion from his victims and he ultimately valued his investments at $65 billion. So depending on how you compare the two Ponzi schemes, the Social Security swindle is anywhere from the same size as Madoff’s — every single year — or more than 10 times the size.
The only other big difference between the two Ponzi schemes is who goes to jail — it’s you, if you refuse to pay into the government-run swindle. And these people think “Donald Trump” will somehow corrupt this place?
Let’s not even talk about the criminal bank bailouts after the government-spiked housing crisis.
Then they cry a river over Trump Water, a company they complain does not exist or is not profitable or something.
I will take a million gallons of Trump Water before I would take a single drop of their Flint water, a toxic brew that only government bureaucrats at every level of every government involved could conjure up.
Better than U.S. government food stamps.
Long, confusing word salad speech that sounds more like an infomercial? Not nearly so vexing and pernicious as the Obamacare website.
Using eminent domain for private development?
How about using the IRS to persecute people for their political beliefs?
Literally, there is not a single accusation these people can throw at Donald Trump that cannot be thrown right back at them — times a thousand.
He sat silent as his campaign manager was accused of roughly accosting a reporter at a press conference?
The Justice Department has sat silent for eight years as Wall Street bankers, brokers and thieves were rewarded with billions for their transgressions while innocent Americans lost their life savings, their retirements and their homes.
A protester gets sucker-punched at a Donald Trump rally?
Oh, what any one of those 4,000 patriots killed — and many thousands more maimed and ruined — would give for just a sucker punch. For a war, it turned out, didn’t really matter all that much to these political experts and professional politicians.
These people, the Washington political class, are like the kid who killed his parents, then begs for mercy from the judge because he is an orphan.
Who is Heidi Cruz? She is one interesting lawyer! Did you know that she sat on a Council on Foreign Relations task force for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)?
Yes right up until 2011 when Ted announced he was running for the Senate!
WHY do you people think our Government won’t secure our border?
Do you think it is Incompetence? Ignorance?
Is it to destroy the nation?
Well a lot can be said about all of those at this point but lets just say the SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership) CFR and that sweet little task force has other plans!
Open up the borders and go deeper south into Mexico and beyond!!
Yes they are actively working to create a new nation of North America, called the North American Union, (NAU) just like the EU, with a controlling politburo, where members are NOT elected by the people.
Heidi Cruz was:
“SPECIAL” Assistant to Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick?
Do you know WHO he is???
Mitt Romney put Zoellick on his team and caught great criticism over it but we didn’t hear about that through Fox or any one else now did we!
Google it!! Just type in Romney and Robert B Zoellick. Its there!!
So WHY would Heidi be a “special assistant” to him of ALL people?
Is this a lawyer doing the work of a lawyer? Hardly, there is an agenda here.
TASK FORCE MEMBERS: HEIDI S. CRUZ is an energy investment banker with Merrill Lynch in Houston, Texas. She served in the Bush White House under Dr. Condoleezza Rice as the Economic Director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council, as the Director of the Latin America Office at the U.S. Treasury Department, and as Special Assistant to Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick, U.S. Trade Representative. Prior to government service, Ms. Cruz was an investment banker with J.P. Morgan in New York City. – (This information is prior to the economic crash, during the Bush administration.)
“Special Assistant to Robert Zoellick” what did that mean?
“Robert Bruce Zoellick is a former U.S. trade representative, deputy secretary of state, president of the World Bank, and vice chairman of Goldman Sachs (2006-2007). As U.S. trade representative,
Zoellick played a key role in the passage of the Central American Free Trade Agreement, the U.S.-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement, the Jordan Free Trade Agreement, and the restoration of fast track negotiating authority via the Trade Act of 2002. He was also a top U.S. negotiator during the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) negotiations that lead to the formation of the World Trade Organization (WTO).”
”U.S. Trade Representative Prior, Zoellick was appointed United States Trade Representative and assumed office on February 7, 2001. As a member Bush’s Cabinet, he served with the rank of Ambassador.
Zoellick is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, as well as the Trilateral Commission, and was one of the signers of the January 26, 1998, Project for the New American Century (PNAC) letter to President William Jefferson Clinton.
Zoellick completed negotiations to bring China and Taiwan into the World Trade Organization (WTO), developed a strategy to launch new global trade negotiations at the WTO meeting at Doha, shepherded Congressional action on the Jordan Free Trade Agreement and the Vietnam Trade Agreement, and worked with Congress to pass the Trade Act of 2002, which included new Trade Promotion Authority.
In an October 2007 speech to the National Press Club, Zoellick stated that “we are working with our Board to significantly step up our assistance to the international efforts to address climate change.
At our upcoming Annual Meetings and at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bali this December, I hope to outline a portfolio of ways the World Bank Group can help integrate the needs of development and low carbon growth.
We need to focus particularly on the interests of developing countries, so that we can meet the challenge of climate change without slowing the growth that will help overcome poverty.
WOW, just WOW – at the Belly of the Beast of the New World Order. The World Trade Organization, The Council on Foreign Relations, the infamous Trilateral Commission, (PNAC) The Project for the New American Century (Neo-Con Ground ZERO) Global Trade, Climate Change, World Bank Group, Lower Carbon Growth” Heidi was SPECIAL Assitant to this guy?? ~Faith Hall
Heidi and Ted Cruz – One World Government.
Ok so how about this … Cruz’s Linkedin page, when I vetted him during the Senate campaign had what is listed below. I copied and pasted it into a text file. Shortly thereafter, I heard him speak. I was curious so I re-visited his Linkedin page and the info below was gone .. erased .. wiped out! ~Faith

*Hispanic Alliance For Prosperity Institute*
**Hispanic Leadership Fund**
Either he lied on his bio or he is lying on the video. Either way, Saint Cruz is capable of lying.
Why would he now hide his association with the Hispanic Alliance for Prosperity Institute and the Hispanic Leadership Fund?
Could it be that he is not who he says he is?
Could it be that he lies?
Well going by the youtube below .. yea I’d say he lied.
So where does he stand on the immigration issue?
Do we really know?
Seems fair to recognize that Ted Cruz has the same relationship to the Truth and the Snake in the Garden of Eden. And his wife is a Globalist operative.
Cruz Supports Giving Fast Track Authority on Trade to Obama
TPP = Mass Immigration
Ted Cruz Supports the Trans-Pacific Partnership!
On April 14, 2015, a much ballyhooed “compromise”—but in fact a constitutional capitulation—regarding S.615, the “Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015,” was unanimously agreed upon within the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Independent Politico.com and Washington Post assessments of critical aspects of the lauded compromise brokered by Republican Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker and Democrat Ben Cardin confirmed my worst fears about what had actually transpired.
Though it gives Congress an avenue to reject the lifting of legislative sanctions that will be a key part of any deal with Iran, it explicitly states that Congress does not have to approve the diplomatic deal struck by Iran, the United States and other world powers… nor does it treat an Iran agreement like a treaty
16‘‘(C) this section does not require a vote by
17 Congress for the agreement to commence;
18 ‘‘(D) this section provides for congressional
Furthermore, as Karen DeYoung and Mike DeBonis added in their Washington Post report:
Obama retains the right to veto any action to scuttle an Iran pact. To override, a veto would require a two-thirds majority of both House and Senate.
Thus the Corker-Cardin compromise validated the Obama administration’s negotiations strategy. That “strategy” was contrary to almost all past arms control agreements of consequence, which have been Senate advice and consent treaties, whose approval requires a 2/3 vote in the Senate.
The Obama administration, in contrast, is hell-bent on giving legitimacy to Iran’s uranium enrichment program, and waiving economic sanctions on Iran, while not submitting the fruits of its masterful negotiations to a congressional vote for initial approval, prior to implementing the agreement. These developments should be a tocsin of looming calamity given that the framework fiasco for this pending deal includes an inadequate/“hotly contested” inspections process, while also fully ignoring Iran’s ballistic missile and nuclear weaponization programs.
Two weeks later, in a Washington Times op-ed, April 29, 2015, Sen. Ted Cruz observed, appropriately:
Thus, Corker-Cardin motion of disapproval reverses the ordinary presumptions. Instead of the President needing 67 Senate votes to ratify the Iran deal, it would now require 67 votes to stop an Iran deal. This makes no sense.
But, just over one week later, on May 7, 2015, while brave Sen Tom Cotton held fast to principle, Senator Cruz joined the rest of the senatorial lemmings, including Senators Rubio and Paul, and capitulated, voting 98 to 1 to approve the shameful Corker-Cardin capitulation.
Sen. Cotton reiterated his principled, constitutional objection that the Iran nuclear deal was not to be presented to the Congress as a treaty.
A nuclear-arms agreement with any adversary—especially the terror-sponsoring, Islamist Iranian regime—should be submitted as a treaty and obtain a two-thirds majority vote in the Senate as required by the Constitution.
In stark contrast, Sen. Cruz could muster only this mealy, mouthed unprincipled rationale for cravenly sacrificing his own often-avowed constitutional purity.
CRUZ: "Ultimately, I voted yes on final passage because it may delay, slightly, President Obama's ability to lift the Iran sanctions and it ensures we will have a Congressional debate on the merits of the Iran deal."
Iran—a self-proclaimed jihadist state with global hegemonic aspirations—remains in an open-ended, “fierce” jihad war with the U.S. “at all levels,” as one “moderate” Iranian adviser to former moderate Iranian President Khatami cogently explained.
Senate Republicans, including GOP presidential contenders Cruz, Paul, and Rubio, shirked their constitutional and moral responsibility, rather than confront the implications of Iran’s religiously inspired bellicosity. With the exception of a gimlet-eyed young Sen. Tom Cotton—who speaks candidly about tactical destruction of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure, which is the only rational way to thwart Iran’s relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons capability.
Senate Republicans (notably self-proclaimed Constitutional “champion” Ted Cruz) cravenly acquiesced to cynical, perverse Obama administration bullying so as not to be labeled “warmongers.”
All the events vis-à-vis the shameful and destabilizing Iran nuke deal that have transpired since were set in motion by this hypocritical capitulation of the fundamental principle of advice and consent—in Cruz’s case, within a week!
This is apparently one of those things that is an open, and yet non-discussed, secret.
Several people have queried why they would be getting Ted Cruz campaign donation requests/solicitation directly from Breitbart, and/or getting donation requests from Ted Cruz on Breitbart letterhead.
The answer is simple, yet perhaps like me you never knew.
The Breitbart Media Group is financially backed and funded by Hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer. Mercer was/is the originating financial backer for the Ted Cruz “Keep the Promise” (KtP 1, KtP2 and KtP3) Super-PACs. Mercer is also the financial backing behind Cambridge Analytica.
Cambridge Analytica is the receiver of the contact information provided to Breitbart when you participate in their on-line Presidential Poll.
In essence, when you participate in the Breitbart poll, you are sending your personal information into a data-base controlled by the proprietary interests of Robert Mercer, Cambridge Analytica. The Ted Cruz campaign then uses the data collected to fund-raise on behalf of the Campaign.
Perhaps I’m the last person to discover that Breitbart is essentially a political operation of the Cruz campaign – but this is akin to realizing the Clinton Global Initiative is the financial underwriter for the New York Times.
While all the dots have never been fully assembled, the facts around relationship have been discussed in various articles, yet never connected:
♦ Politico outlines the Robert Mercer financial underwriting/ownership of Breitbart HERE
♦ Politico July article outlining Robert Mercer’s financial underwriting of Cambridge Analytica to collect: “psychographic” analyses of voters to try to win them over with narrowly targeted micro-messages” – HERE
♦ FEC distribution showing Ted Cruz Leadership PAC – Pre-Presidential Bid – Paying Cambridge Analytica HERE
It would appear the entire reason for Breitbart.Com to put their Presidential Preference Poll together was to gather information on visitors for later distribution to the Ted Cruz campaign, with the expressed intention of micro-targeting those participating visitors…
Knowing all of this, it certainly makes sense now why so many people have noted that Breitbart goes to extraordinary lengths to avoid any critical mentions of their candidate, Ted Cruz.
After all, this unique and unconventional relationship means Breitbart Media has a vested financial interest in Ted Cruz’s candidacy, and a profound conflict of interest for any political editorial surrounding the ongoing 2016 Presidential Primary.
Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and now you know…..
…Matt Drudge was right: “Stay off their platforms” !!
PS. HatTip and thanks to JRD for helping to find the missing piece of the puzzle. Understanding now why the Breitbart team was unresponsive to direct inquiry.
LAST REFUGE / CONSERVATIVETREEHOUSE.COM
It is by its promise of a sense of power that evil often attracts the weak. ~Eric Hoffer (1902-1983) (American philosopher and author.)
Leftist anarchists sparked security fears in Chicago on Friday and shut down a rally that had drawn tens-of-thousands of Trump supporters.
Thousands of Donald Trump fans were stunned to hear that riots had succeeded in derailing the event at the University of Illinois-Chicago. The announcement came amid protests outside the venue.
Oh yes, George Soros’ Moveon.org
anarchists, along with Bernie Sanders, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall street, F**k the Police, and typical
Chicago-Style-Democrat-thug politics were responsible for the riot in Chicago where Trump was to speak. [Link]
Many were carrying Mexican flags and wearing “Muslims Hate Trump,” t-shirts. This is the second stage of planning to derail Trump. Because Trump had to cancel the Chicago speech, these gangsters will try this again and again. Yes, it’s the 60s again, with commies fomenting hatred for freedom of speech from the only candidate who wants to return America to her founding principles. And of course, Obama’s buddy, Bill Ayers, was in the crowd demonstrating.
Born and raised in Chicago, I know the
politics of this democratic held city only too well, and it very, very ugly.
Ted Cruz Claims Trump Responsible
Ted Cruz and the GOP jumped into the fray of Soros Chicago politics and actually blamed Donald Trump for the protests. So, Ted Cruz blames Donald for not being politically correct and thus causing the protests and violence.
Diane Marshall of the Marshall Report writes this:
"What if the Trump supporters decided to go ballistic and riot Cruz town halls because of Glenn Beck’s garbage mouth calling them ALL NAZIS and Trump Hitler! He can’t blame that all on Beck…he stood their nodding with that snaky grin approving all of the liar messages every time they were spoken, over and over and over again."
Cruz has lied over and over again about Trump, and even about Carson and Rubio. His supporters don’t seem to understand the deviousness of his campaign and continue to say it’s untrue, but we’ve documented his lies many, many times. Cruz has even accepted monies from David McIntosh, the president of Club for Growth.
Remember Club for Growth is pro-amnesty, and when they asked Trump for a million-dollar donation, Trump refused. So CfG spent $3.3 million in attack ads against Trump. Of course Ted Cruz has no problem accepting money from McIntosh, and why wouldn’t he, he’s for open borders. Heidi Cruz spent five years at the Council on Foreign Relations helping to write the North America Union, and that filthy sovereignty destroying piece of legislation eliminates the borders between Canada, Mexico and the United States. If Cruz becomes president, we will become just like the now failed, European Union.
Fox News Joins in Blaming Trump
Fox News, (especially Megyn Kelly), who has proven to be worse than CNN, has even joined the left (MoveOn.org and George Soros) in blaming Trump for this communist demonstration from the far left anarchists. They’re saying Trump should accept that America no longer allows total free speech, that it should be curtailed to be more “inclusive and politically sensitive.” Excuse me, while I go get my barf bag. If this doesn’t sound like commie rhetoric, I don’t know what does!
Who Owns What?
The GOP establishment, the DNC establishment, the MSM establishment, and the anarchists from Soros’ leftist organizations all hate Trump, but even the web outlets we believe give us the truth have questionable ownership.
Billionaire Robert Mercer founded Cruz’s super Pac for $10 million, but he also purchased Breitbart.com for another $11 million. [Link] Mercer has given $750,000 to the infamous Club for Growth (CfG). In my article, Why The GOP Establishment Hates Donald Trump, I exposed CfG partners and allies include the Peter G. Peterson Foundation. Peterson is chairman emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations and former chairman of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. Another ally is the US Chamber of Commerce, who is also behind the invasion of illegal aliens on our southern borders.
Mercer has also given $2 million to American Crossroads, founded by that stellar neo-conservative commie, Karl Rove. Mercer was/is the originating financial backer for the Ted Cruz “Keep the Promise” (KtP1, KtP2 and KtP3) Super-PACs. Mercer is also the financial backing behind Cambridge Analytica. Cambridge Analytica is the receiver of the contact information provided to Breitbart when you participate in their on-line Presidential Poll. [Link] They were hired by Cruz as his spy machine on voter attributes via Facebook.
The Daily Wire is actually owned by the Wilks brothers, Levi and Farris Wilks. These two are the other end of the Ted Cruz financial team, and massive multi-million dollar donors to Cruz’s presidential bid. Ben Shapiro is the front-man for The Daily Wire, and as such he is 1000% behind Cruz.
As 2015 came to a close, Ted Cruz met with hundreds of prominent faith leaders (including David Barton, James Robison, and John Hagee) at the ranch of Texas tycoon, Farris Wilks. Wilks supports most of the phony rightwing groups in the secretive Council for National Policy. Farris and his brother Dan have donated $15 million to a super PAC which supports Cruz. Cameras and recording devices were not allowed at the Wilks ranch when Cruz spoke, so only God and attendees know what was said at the event. However, one might be able to get an idea of how Cruz views God’s role in American politics by reviewing his associations. Farris Wilks heads the Assembly of Yahweh, Seventh Day. Here’s what they believe.
National Review, who came out with their list of who hates Trump not long ago, now is endorsing Ted Cruz. We shouldn’t be surprised at that since those on the list are the neo-cons claiming to be conservatives. Remember that the National Review was founded by William F. Buckley, CFR member, CIA agent, and Skull and Bones man. Buckley actually appointed the present head of National Review, Rich Lowry, in 1997 to carry on with the neo-conservative propaganda of the founder. If you haven’t read John McManus’s book, “William F. Buckley, Pied Piper for the Establishment,” I’d really suggest getting a copy. It is heavily referenced and has a wonderful index.
By now, most Americans, who have been politically astute for many decades, can see just exactly what the Republican party has become in the last 60 years. Very few of them are friends of the Constitution, and neither are they conservatives.
The establishment Republicans, and media all claim Mr. Trump isn’t conservative enough, but this is a euphemism for saying he isn’t a globalist establishment insider. Americans who flock to his rallies know this, they know he resonates with freedom. They know he isn’t perfect and he doesn’t know every subject, but they know he’s a good man, rough around the edges like General Patton, but always telling us the truth the way he sees it. We rejoice in hearing this truth. It’s thrilling after so many years of hearing the false drivel from the moderate left leaning Republican candidates.

“I can attest to the fact that even in our campaign there were many efforts to try and say that people shouldn’t vote for me or Rick Santorum or Ben Carson,” Huckabee said of the controversy over the Iowa caucus where the Cruz campaign spread a CNN report that Carson was dropping out of the race and to urge Carson supporters to vote for Cruz instead.
“The Cruz people said it would be a wasted vote and they should vote for Cruz. It wouldn’t have made a difference for any of use but it is the kind of low-life, sleazy politics people truly get sick of.”
“Ted Cruz apologized for his campaign spreading a false story that Ben Carson had dropped out of the race but he deflected blame to CNN,” Huckabee explained this week on the former Arkansas Governors’ pay-per-view podcast. “Dr. Carson, being a good Christian, accepted the apology on a personal level, but he didn’t buy Cruz’s claims of innocent intentions. As usual, Donald Trump was more blunt, he accused Cruz of stealing the caucuses and said there should be new vote.”
Huckabee also slammed Cruz’s campaign performance on another podcast.
“Ted Cruz also took flack for his campaign tactics in Iowa and his unpopularity in Washington and most of them quite deservedly, especially for the last-minute and late hit, below the belt hit, on Ben Carson in Iowa,” Huckabee said, referencing last Saturday’s GOP debate.

Ted Cruz has apparently shrugged off the criticism he took In Iowa over his shame-baiting mailers along with his Ben Carson "dirty tricks" during the caucus itself and immediately implemented a new Rovian dirty tactic to the voters of New Hampshire.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is out with a deceptive new mailer that masquerades as official government business and promises people there's a "check enclosed" when it's actually asking for money instead.
A New Jersey resident sent The Huffington Post the latest piece of mail he received from Cruz's campaign. The envelope appears to have come from Cruz's Senate office and has his name printed the same way it often is for Senate business. In small type the mailer clarifies that it is for "personal" matters and was not sent at taxpayers' expense. It also promises a check.
But the check inside -- which is made out to the Cruz campaign, not to the voter -- is fake.
The accompanying letter promises that a "group of generous supporters" have promised to match donations received in response to the mailer.
For a candidate who's professing his hatred for Washington and all it stands for, Cruz' campaign has easily slipped into a Lee Atwater persona and displayed the kind of deception that's supposedly unworthy for a Christian conservative.
The New Jersey voter who received the mailer and asked not to be named said the letter would be enough to "fool my mother-in-law."

EXCLUSIVE–Voicemails: ‘Ben Carson Suspending Campaigning’; Cruz: ‘Accurate Report’
New audio obtained exclusively by Breitbart News indicates that as the Iowa caucuses began on Monday night, the campaign called precinct captains informing them that Dr. Ben Carson was suspending campaigning, and instructing them to tell voters they should “not waste a vote on Ben Carson and vote for Ted Cruz.”
The calls were placed after the Carson campaign had already clarified that Carson was not suspending his campaign.
Nancy Bliesman, a precinct captain for Cruz in Crawford County, Iowa, told Breitbart News that she received two voice mails–one at 7:07 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST), and one at 7:29 p.m.–on the night of the Iowa caucuses, which began at 7:00 p.m.
The first call came from a woman with a phone number out of Galveston, Texas at 7:07 p.m. (transcript follows audio):
[inaudible]…from the Ted Cruz campaign, calling to get to a precinct captain, and it has just been announced that Ben Carson is taking a leave of absence from the campaign trail, so it is very important that you tell any Ben Carson voters that for tonight, uh, that they not waste a vote on Ben Carson, and vote for Ted Cruz. He is taking a leave of absence from his campaign. All right? Thank you. Bye.
The second voicemail was left at 7:29 p.m. from an Iowa phone number that Breitbart News traced back to a Cruz campaign volunteer hotline.
Hello, this is the Cruz campaign with breaking news: Dr. Ben Carson will be [garbled] suspending campaigning following tonight’s caucuses. Please inform any Carson caucus goers of this news and urge them to caucus for Ted instead. Thank you. Good night.
“My precinct people voted” without hearing the rumor that Carson would be suspending his campaign, Bliesman told Breitbart News. “Ben Carson did get his votes in our precinct ’cause I didn’t take the calls.”
Bliesman’s husband, who was also with her on Monday night, told Breitbart News that they were at the precinct labeled “DC-A-B,” which stands for the areas of Dow City, Arion and Buck Grove.
According to Mr. Bliesman, the total vote count in the precinct was as follows:

Bliesman said there was a “huge turnout,” adding, “we had probably at least 100 percent increase from four years ago.”
“Everyone knows the mainstream media says things–whether it’s true or not, check it out,” she urged, saying she wishes the Carson campaign had been consulted before the report was spread.
The revelation about Cruz’s campaign calls and voicemails comes after an email surfaced from Cruz’s deputy Iowa campaign director Spence Rogers, sent at 6:56 p.m.–four minutes before caucuses began–suggesting that Carson would be “taking time off from the campaign trail after Iowa and making a big announcement next week.” The email told supporters: “Please inform any caucus goers of this news and urge them to caucus for Ted Cruz.”
Cruz apologized to Carson on Tuesday, saying his team should also have forwarded a subsequent after Carson clarified that he would not be suspending his campaign.
However, the Carson campaign had already clarified at 6:53 p.m. that he was not dropping out.
The original report by Chris Moody of CNN at 6:44 p.m. had reported explicitly that Carson was not suspending his campaign.
On Thursday, he sent a message attacking the Cruz campaign, saying that “no attempts were made to verify the truth” about his departure, and that “no actions have been taken to correct the problem.”
The Cruz campaign referenced a clarifying tweet by CNN’s Chris Moody that was published at 7:30 p.m.
Cruz campaign spokesperson Catherine Frazier told Breitbart News on Thursday (via email):
The senator has already apologized for not more quickly making that clarification, and there is no evidence that our sharing of this news story impacted Carson’s campaign – he well outperformed expectations. The voicemails are in line with the reports that were made at that time. Our campaign shared an accurate report that Carson was suspending campaigning after the caucuses – he went home and he went to D.C. – and these voicemails do not suggest that he would completely drop out of the race.
Lastly, it should surprise no one that Carson’s initial announcement he was taking time off the trail would be a news story. It is highly unusual for candidates to take time off the trail between the first voting states.
Carson modestly out-performed his public poll average in Iowa by 1.6%.

Before delivering a rousing speech to a raucous crowd at the summit, Cruz took some time to meet with activists from Liberty Iowa, a group founded after Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign, to answer questions on a variety of issues. Cruz challenged the group to throw him “no softballs”, and they engaged in a back and forth that lasted about two hours. The meeting went by largely without disagreement, or with only expected disagreements on things like Iran. That being said, one interesting moment occurred when Cruz appeared to flip flop on his stance that President Obama must enforce marijuana laws in Colorado and Washington. When asked about this stance, Cruz claimed that he never took the position to begin with, and had been talking about Eric Holder’s instruction to not prosecute for small amounts of marijuana. Cruz claimed that his view of Washington and Colorado was the federalist view that it was the states choice. Seeing Ted Cruz take a states rights position on marijuana immediately raised questions in my mind. This is an opinion that I can find no record of having been expressed by Cruz in the public eye, and is directly contradicted by his past statements on the subject.
At one point Cruz criticized the Obama administration for not enforcing federal drug laws, and then followed up with an interview with Reason about that topic. One of those in attendance believes that Cruz may be pandering for votes from the marijuana legalization crowd.
What is most fascinating to me about this reversal of positions is that it came during a private meeting with libertarian activists in an early caucus state. Is Ted Cruz trying to pull a fast one on Iowa libertarian activists? It appears that a man who has gone to Washington with a reputation for being a “straight shooter” may have finally found a constituency towards whom he will pander for votes. Cruz talked during the meeting of trying to compete with Rand Paul for the liberty vote, but it appears that if he wishes to do so he may end up flip flopping on some key issues. Will he make the calculation that this is worth it, or abandon the liberty vote strategy for what he sees as more fertile ground? It will be fascinating to see how Cruz handles this balancing act going forward.Cruz has largely remained silent on the issue, only going so far as to timidly support gun rights for medical marijuana patients. While he has now put out a position which supports the right of states to legalize marijuana, he still has not stated his own position of whether or not he think marijuana should be legal, either for medical or recreational purposes. He recently stated that he “foolishly experimented with marijuana” when he was younger. A bill has recently been introduced in Texas which would decrease the penalty for possessing less than an ounce of cannabis.
