Is There Anything Ted Cruz Doesn’t Lie About (cont.)?

At the first Republican debate, Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) emphatically agreed that he would support the GOP nominee.  His pledge was unequivocal.  The curious thing about the question is that it was largely directed at Trump – who was already hinting at a third-party run if he couldn’t get the GOP nod.

But on Thursday morning speaking to the Texas delegation  – which largely worships at the fount of all things Ted Cruz – the junior senator refused to back down from his failure to endorse or even tacitly support Donald Trump during his prime-time speech on Wednesday.  When asked by a member of the delegation why he was back-pedaling on his previous pledge, Cruz claimed it was because of Trump’s attacks on his family.

“I am not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my father. And that pledge was not a blanket commitment that if you slander and attack Heidi I’m going to nonetheless go like a servile puppy dog.”

No Cruz is not a servile puppy dog – he is a vicious Rottweiler-Chihuahua mix that will chew up anything that stands in the path of his enormous ego and his overweening ambition.  Cruz obviously believes that Trump will be defeated in November and he is not going down on the USS Donald.  Trump’s attacks on his family are just a convenient excuse for Cruz to play the wounded warrior standing up for truth, justice and the Canadian way.   It is so hard for Cruz to stand to the side and see such a lesser man – as indeed all men are compared to Ted – take the helm of the GOP.

 

 

Ted Cruz Booed Off Stage at GOP Convention

Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) refused to endorse GOP nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday and exited the stage to a chorus of boos.  Even Cruz’s wife Heidi had to be escorted from the hall as epithets and insults rained down on her.  Cruz, perhaps the greatest narcissist to ever run for the Presidency (and that would be setting quite a standard), congratulated Trump on winning and then went on to give a speech that did not again mention his name.  Instead, Cruz took the opportunity to undermine the building sense of unity at the convention and instead lay the groundwork for a 2020 run in the event that Trump loses.  Seldom has there been a more naked attempt to promote a future candidacy at the expense of party unity and victory for the current nominee

As reported by the Texas Tribune, Texas delegate Shaun Ireland said it worked against party unity: “There was so much good feeling and unity at this convention for three days, and Ted Cruz just came in and cravenly threw it against a brick wall just so he could set himself up for 2020.” 

Anyone who knows anything about the Texas junior senator could not be in the least surprised that he gave a speech that was largely about his future and not focused on his previously beloved and now hated rival Trump.  It must be hard for Cruz to stand aside and let lesser men – and that would be every person alive other than Cruz himself – take the reins of the party and possibly the country.   So Cruz has either set himself up for a 2020 run or poisoned the GOP well.  Time will tell.  The only certain thing is that we have not heard the last of Tea Party hero and that his ego will demand at least three more attempts at winning the GOP nod.

One Last Time (Maybe) – Is There Anything Ted Cruz Doesn’t Lie About?

In his classless non-concession speech last night, Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) was touting the values of the United States – many of which Red agrees with.  But one particular statement caught Red’s attention.  “America does not wage wars of conquest.”  Well, Ted is either ignorant or as usual lying to serve his rhetorical purposes.  Both the Mexican-American War and the Spanish-American War were clearly started as wars of conquest. And while we let go of much of what was conquered during the SAW – we are still holding on to Puerto Rico, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, and of course we kept everything we took from Mexico in the MAW.

That Basketball Ring?

Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) attempted to capture some Indiana magic by appearing in the same basketball arena where the iconic movie Hoosiers was filmed.  But Cruz apparently is not very familiar with sports lexicon as he referred to the hoop as “that basketball ring.” That kind of flub in oral argument before a court of appeals would have his colleagues smirking.   CNN has the clip.

Is There Anything Ted Cruz Doesn’t Lie About (cont.)?

Apparently,  the answer is “Yes.”  The National Enquirer has reported that Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) has had extramarital affairs with at least 5 women. The junior senator from Texas (or “Pervy Ted” as the NE would have it) denies the allegations.   Notorious campaign dirty trickster Roger Stone stands by the accusations and has thrown down the gauntlet basically taunting Cruz to sue him.

Well for once, Red believes that Ted is telling the truth.  There is no way that there are 5 “non-professional” women out there who are willing to have coitus with Cruz.

As for Cruz denying copulating with members of the Order Rodentia, Red remains skeptical for now.

Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) of course had to weigh in on President Obama’s trip to one of Cruz’s ancestral homelands.  According to Cruz,  “It is so sad, and so injurious to our future as well as Cuba’s, that Obama has chosen to legitimize the corrupt and oppressive Castro regime with his presence on the island.”

But what did the Junior Senator have to say when his former boss, good buddy and Poor Idiot Governor Greg Abbott visited Cuba a few months ago?  Righteous indignation at pandering to dictators?  Hardly.  Even though the two trips shared almost identical mission statements, there was radio silence from Cruz.  So when Tea Party Republicans visit Cuba to promote trade and business that’s absolutely great.  But when the President does the same thing, well we all knew he was a Commie at heart anyway.

Is There Anything Ted Cruz Doesn’t Lie About (cont.)?

Red loves his frequent emails from Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas).  The one this morning contained some real whoppers revealing that our Cubo-Canadian senator is either a constitutional ignoramus or liar.  Red goes with liar.

Our Founding Fathers designed the Constitution to act as chains to bind the mischief of government (actually we all know it was written to empower the government to actually accomplish stuff after the disastrous gridlock caused by the Articles of Confederation – but pish!) and protect the liberties endowed to us by our Creator (forgetting to include a single reference to God or a Creator must have been an oversight – and that whole thing about “no religious test ever being required as a qualification to any office or public trust”  – well that’s just words). Today, with a vacancy on the United States Supreme Court, those liberties hang in the balance (you know scales of justice and all that). The sanctity of life (except for executing possibly innocent bad guys and I have no problemo with that), marriage (gay cows are out the barn already), religious liberty (aka an excuse to exercise their bigotry to some), and the Second Amendment (how horrible if I can’t make machine gun bacon anymore) are at risk.

The American people must have a voice in deciding the next Supreme Court Justice (I forget exactly where that is in the Constitution), and accordingly, I will continue to fulfill my constitutional duty (other than actually bothering to show up to do the job I was elected to do) by advising that the Senate should not consider any replacement nominated by President Obama (or in other words – ignore my constitutional duty to advise and consent). 

“Justice Scalia was a lion of the law (he literally loved to stalk, kill and eat plaintiff’s lawyers),” said Sen. Cruz. “He was someone I knew for 20 years (although he didn’t remember me working for the Court). He was brilliant. He was principled. He singlehandedly changed the course of American law (Yes, he actually won many 1-8 decisions just by the sheer force of his personality). I’ve said before, like Ronald Reagan was to the presidency (except that we all know he couldn’t get elected dog catcher in today’s GOP), so Justice Scalia was to the Supreme Court (well, except for that whole being senile at the end part). For 80 years it has been the practice that the Senate has not confirmed any nomination made during an election year, and we shouldn’t make an exception now (notice how I have subtly changed that argument to get around the fact that Anthony Kennedy was confirmed 97-0 in the last year of Reagan’s presidency, but I am guessing you aren’t paying very close attention to that fact or the 15 other Supreme Court Justices who were confirmed in an election year going all the way back to George Washington – the founding fathers were really morons to let that happen).

“When other campaigns attack us personally, impugn my integrity or my character, I don’t respond in kind.”  Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas).

What a knee-slapper. Ted even lies about lying.  Ted doesn’t respond in kind.   Instead, he just makes stuff up, tells lies, doctors photos, spreads malicious rumors and does anything else that he thinks is expedient to advance his utter narcissism.  Because, after all, he is the smartest man in every room and the only person who can save our nation.  Indeed, he is the self-chosen one to save humanity from the evils of having a government that might actually do something to help the poor and oppressed just like Jesus (who he falsely claims to represent) said we should do.

Is There Anything Ted Cruz Doesn’t Lie About (cont.)?

Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) fired his communications director and top spokesman Rick Tyler, after Tyler promoted a video that wrongly depicted Sen. Marco Rubio (Est.-Florida) as trash-talking the Bible.

The Cruz campaign linked to a story showing a video of Rubio walking by a Cruz staffer and Cruz’s father Rafael, who were reading the Bible in a hotel lobby.  The subtitles on the video showed Rubio saying to the staffer, “Got a good book there, not many answers in it.”

Rubio communications director Alex Conant later tweeted out the same video with what he says are the correct subtitles.  Speaking of the Bible, Rubio says, “All the answers are in there.”

If there is a single person out there who doesn’t think this kind of campaign trickery begins and ends with the Junior Senator himself, then Red has some interesting investment options for you.   Tyler is a fall guy that had to go when this kind of abject dirty trick was exposed.

Is There Anything Ted Cruz Doesn’t Lie About (cont.)?

The Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) sponsored website TheRealRubioRecord.com has posted a photo of Sen. Marco Rubio (?-Florida) – GASP! – actually shaking hands with the President of the United States.  This treasonous act of actually extending your hand to the duly elected leader of our country would clearly disqualify Sr. Rubio from himself being President.   For his part, Cruz claims to have never shaken hands with any Democrat – preferring instead to do the “old tie trick” where he points to a spot on your tie and then flicks your chin.  What a card!

But the revelation of this scandalous photo of a sitting Senator displaying common courtesy (something not likely to be a problem in a Cruz administration), has instead again raised questions about the tactics of Cruz’s campaign.  Why? Because it is an obviously altered photo.  As a matter of first impression, Red would note – who shakes with their left hand?  We know the Kenyan, Muslim, Socialist, Terrorism-Sympathizing President is, of course, left-handed.  But even Steve Carlton shook with his right hand – that is, when he wasn’t throwing a high hard one at your head.  Second, the Rubio campaign has clearly shown that the photo is a poorly executed “Photoshop” job.

Todd Harris, a Rubio mouthpiece, insisted, “This is not Marco Rubio. This person, we don’t know who that is, but they Photoshopped Marco’s face onto somebody else. This is how phony and how deceitful the Cruz campaign has become. Marco Rubio doesn’t own that tie, he doesn’t own that watch, he doesn’t own that suit . . . There is so little honesty left in the Cruz campaign that they’re actually willing to Photoshop a fellow Republican’s face onto the body of some other person to completely invent an attack on Marco Rubio.”

Rubio’s campaign backed up its claim by showing the stock photo used by Cruz.

But all this sniping may actually backfire on Rubio, Red knows that true red-blooded, patriotic, evangelical Christian voters in South Carolina would never truck with anyone foolish enough to not take a knee shot at Obama’s nads when close enough to actually shake hands with the devil incarnate.
