Ted Cruz

  • Ted Cruz: Mensch!

    Reading Time: 1 minutesIf you read my blog, you know I’ve had differences with Senator Ted Cruz. But the Senator has stepped up. Bigly! Only a gentleman would do what Cruz just did with his El Chapo bill. Remember the GOP race? Cruz and Trump went at each other like nobody’s business. Wives and all. While Cruz couldn’t […]

  • #NeverTrump Self Immolation Over Trusty Ted Cruz

    Reading Time: 3 minutesThis is for the people, like me, who realized sometime between June 2015 and June 2016 that Donald Trump is at least better than Hillary and possibly a transformational character who can reverse America’s descent into chaos. “A leader is a man who can adapt principles to circumstances.” – General George Patton Jr You might …

  • Really America? Are you seriously Cruz’n for a Bruisin’?

    So Ted Cruz came and spoke to the RNC Convention in Cleveland. The speech he gave drew cheers throughout.

    He said,

    I want to congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination last night. And, like each of you, I want to see the principles that our party believes prevail in November.”

    More cheers. He continued on with some heartfelt comments and received even more cheers.

    He closed his speech out with this:

    “The case we have to make to the American people, the case each person in this room has to make to the American people is to commit to each of them that we will defend freedom, and be faithful to the Constitution.

    We will unite the party; we will unite the country by standing together for shared values by standing for liberty. God bless each and every one of you, and God bless the United States of America.”

    He waved to the crowd and then the cheers started to turn into boos – I couldn’t it figure out.

    Boos? Why the crowd was booing?

    Ladies & Gentlemen (or reasonable facsimiles thereof (manic NeverTrumpr’s and frothing UberTrumpr’s are of course excused)), Ted Cruz just congratulated Trump for winning the nomination, he called for all Republicans to not stay home in November, he called for unity, and he called for them to Vote their consciences… and that upsets you?!

    Are you seriously saying that a person’s conscience would prevent them from voting for Trump?

    Have you even considered what you are saying?!

    I am personally going to oppose Hillary being elected as POTUS with the biggest electoral rocket blast that I can lay my hands on, and that rocket is Trump. I will do that with a serenely clear conscience. Are you saying to me that that is not possible?

    Are you really saying, shouting, that asking for Republicans to vote their consciences, means not voting for Trump? Are you thinking about the words that are leaving your mouths?

    Apparently not, not last night anyway. Heidi Cruz had to be protected from the crowd and escorted from the hall. Ted Cruz had to be protected from assault from wealthy donors.

    I was, and am, truly, stunned.

    Does anyone recall any of the details of the Primary? Trump not only called Cruz a liar, he branded him as one. He called his wife ugly, and a crook. He more than insinuated that Ted Cruz’s father was involved with JFK’s assassination. And much, much more.

    Did you really expect Ted Cruz to behave as if none of that had happened? If he had walked out on that stage and said:

    “I wholeheartedly support my good friend Donald Trump, and endorse him for President of the United States of America!”

    , would you have believed that?

    No. Freaking. Way. You wouldn’t have bought it for a moment.

    But you still wanted to hear that?

    Have you asked yourself: Why?

    Ted Cruz called for party unity and for voting your conscience, both UP and down the ticket. But the crowd, they, (you?) didn’t want his endorsement, they wanted his Submission. They wanted his total and complete submission.  Isn’t there an ideology that we’re currently battling in the world that is all about demanding complete submission from people?

    When the Truth no longer matters, only Power does. That is something that should scare the hell out of each and everyone of you, because if it doesn’t, that will mean that you’ve accepted, and embraced it.

    As a friend of mind said: “Submission. It isn’t just for Islam anymore.”

    That’s pretty much it.

    You’d better get your heads together people. Fast… because you are most definitely Cruzing for a bruising.

  • Cruz and Kasich need each other in race to beat Trump

    Ted Cruz taking on Donald Trump one-on-one isn’t necessarily the best path to victory. In many primaries, it would be better if John Kasich remained in the race. This article examines where and why that is., analyzing coming primaries. Cruz and Kasich need to work together, and each needs the wisdom and humility to understand the strategic value of standing down for the other.

  • Time to vote strategically, unite behind Cruz

    I have favored Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for President ever since Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker dropped out. I also believe that Donald Trump would lead conservatives to electoral disaster if given the Republican nomination. Trump has been winning with large pluralities, but not majorities, but pluralities are enough to win, even in winner-take-all primaries. Trump will ride 30% victories all the way to the convention if the other 70% remains splintered. It’s time to united behind Ted Cruz.

  • Johnson and Onder Discuss Ted Cruz

    Ryan Johnson guest hosted on KSGF and was joined by Senator Bob Onder to discuss Onder’s support of Ted Cruz in the presidential primary. Being devoutly pro-life, Onder doesn’t understand how one could claim to be pro-life yet be unwavering in their support of Planned Parenthood. He appreciates Cruz’s continued and consistent support of life.

  • Ted Cruz’s ultimate strategy

    Original Post: Ted Cruz’s ultimate strategy.

    Ted Cruz has a powerful strategy available to him. This strategy could not only determine the winner of the Republican convention but put in position to influence policy for generations. But it’s probably not what you’re thinking. I’m going to lay out some assumptions, many of which you could disagree with. That’s okay. But for…
