Senator Cruz endorses Trump

Of course he did. As I have said, I will vote for Trump as well, as will many other Conservatives like Dennis Prager among others. The fact is Hillary is as unacceptable a candidate as we have ever had. No one is more diametrically opposed o our Constitution than Hillary Clinton.  I believe in principles, which is why I supported Cruz. Face it without principles, we are finished as a nation. But, at some points in life, pragmatism is the only choice left. This is such a time for me. Here is what Senator Cruz said about his decision

Via Facebook:

This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election.

In Cleveland, I urged voters, “please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket whom you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”

After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.

I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word.

Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.

Six key policy differences inform my decision. 

 

First, and most important, the Supreme Court. For anyone concerned about the Bill of Rights — free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment — the Court hangs in the balance. I have spent my professional career fighting before the Court to defend the Constitution. We are only one justice away from losing our most basic rights, and the next president will appoint as many as four new justices. We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia.”

For some time, I have been seeking greater specificity on this issue, and today the Trump campaign provided that, releasing a very strong list of potential Supreme Court nominees — including Sen. Mike Lee, who would make an extraordinary justice — and making an explicit commitment to nominate only from that list. This commitment matters, and it provides a serious reason for voters to choose to support Trump.

Second, Obamacare. The failed healthcare law is hurting millions of Americans. If Republicans hold Congress, leadership has committed to passing legislation repealing Obamacare. Clinton, we know beyond a shadow of doubt, would veto that legislation. Trump has said he would sign it.

Third, energy. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s war on coal and relentless efforts to crush the oil and gas industry. Trump has said he will reduce regulations and allow the blossoming American energy renaissance to create millions of new high-paying jobs.

Fourth, immigration. Clinton would continue and even expand President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty. Trump has promised that he would revoke those illegal executive orders.

Fifth, national security. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s willful blindness to radical Islamic terrorism. She would continue importing Middle Eastern refugees whom the FBI cannot vet to make sure they are not terrorists. Trump has promised to stop the deluge of unvetted refugees.

Sixth, Internet freedom. Clinton supports Obama’s plan to hand over control of the Internet to an international community of stakeholders, including Russia, China, and Iran. Just this week, Trump came out strongly against that plan, and in support of free speech online.

These are six vital issues where the candidates’ positions present a clear choice for the American people.

If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country.

My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that.

We also have seen, over the past few weeks and months, a Trump campaign focusing more and more on freedom — including emphasizing school choice and the power of economic growth to lift African-Americans and Hispanics to prosperity.

Finally, after eight years of a lawless Obama administration, targeting and persecuting those disfavored by the administration, fidelity to the rule of law has never been more important.

The Supreme Court will be critical in preserving the rule of law. And, if the next administration fails to honor the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then I hope that Republicans and Democrats will stand united in protecting our fundamental liberties.

Our country is in crisis. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way.

A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don’t want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him.

Ted Cruz Suspends Presidential Campaign After Indiana Rout

Breaking: Cruz Suspends Presidential Campaign After Indiana Rout – Dallas Morning News

.

.
Ted Cruz ended his presidential campaign Tuesday night after a rout in Indiana, unable to gain traction against a rival he calls a pathological liar.

Donald Trump is still about 200 delegates shy of the magic number needed to clinch the Republican nomination. Cruz’s decision will make it far easier for the New York mogul to collect the 1,237 delegate majority needed to avert a contested convention, leaving the anti-Trump effort demoralized and struggling.

Campaign manager Jeff Roe confirmed that Cruz is suspending his campaign.

The concession of defeat came on one of the most vitriol=filled days of a tumultuous campaign. The senator’s wife, Heidi Cruz, joined him at a converted train station in downtown Indianapolis, evening light streaming through the stain glass onto 200 or so dismayed supporters.

Indiana was not a must=win state for Trump. But he won decisively. For Cruz, who had painted the Hoosier State as a crucial front in the battle to keep the nomination from Trump, the loss was devastating. Cruz spent most of the last two weeks in Indiana. He named a running mate there. He persuaded Ohio Gov. John Kasich to retreat to bolster his own chances. And yet he may have lost nearly all of the state’s 57 delegates…

Noted RINO: Anyone voting for Ted Cruz is crazy!

Or words to that effect anyway from Rep. Peter King (RINO) N.Y.

BUZZFEED – “Let me say something about the New York primary: Any New Yorker who even thinks of voting for Ted Cruz should have their head examined,” King said on the Joe Piscopo Show on AM 970 The Answer. “Really, here’s a guy who refused to sign onto the 9/11 health care act for the cops and fireman. Here’s a guy who talks about New York values.”

“New York keeps going forward,” King continued, citing the city’s response to 9/11. “We’re tough, and to have some guy like Ted Cruz with cowboy boots walk around criticizing us. Look, I hope he gets the cold shoulder and other things from every New Yorker. Send him back where he belongs. He’s a phony, and that was all off the record by the way. I don’t want anyone listening. That was all off the record.”

“I just can’t stand that guy,” he added.

King is one of the least conservative Republicans, and hates Cruz for, well, being a conservative. H’T The Right Scoop

Your Daley Gator Cruz/Trump War Of The Wives News Update


.
So, some smarmy Cruz supporters decided to attack Donald Trump’s wife over the fact that the former model posed nude in GQ magazine back in 2000. This they did on the eve of Tuesday’s Utah caucus for obvious religious reasons, and Ted – who claims he knew nothing about the smear campaign beforehand – didn’t bother condemning them for it.

Predictably, Donald Trump decided to respond in kind, insinuating that Cruz’s wife is ugly in comparison to his own and threatening to “spill the beans” on Heidi Cruz, whatever that means.

With equal predictability, Ted Cruz hit back, calling The Donald a “sniveling coward”, and warning him to leave his wife “the hell alone.”

Last night, that bastion of journalistic integrity known as the National Enquirer jumped into the mix, releasing a story which claims that Cruz has had five extramarital affairs over the years. So far, two of the women named by the Enquirer, Katrina Pierson and Amanda Carpenter, have denied the allegations, and now Ted Cruz is blaming “sleazy Donald” Trump – who is friends with the Enquirer’s CEO – for planting the story.

This afternoon, Trump posted on his facebook page that he had “absolutely nothing to do with” the National Enquirer story, adding that “unlike Lyin’ Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and henchman and then pretend total innocence.”

In the meantime, neither Ted nor Donald is spending much time talking about the fact that the current President of the United States just told a bunch of Argentinians that there’s essentially no difference between Capitalism and Communism. They’ve also neglected to righteously hammer Hillary Clinton for being a provable felon, as well as an habitual liar who should be sitting in a jail cell right now awaiting prosecution for crimes too numerous to enumerate.

Oh well, I guess people have their priorities. After all, it’s not like the country will be irreversibly harmed or anything if the Wicked Witch of Benghazi gets into the Oval Office next January.

Oh wait, YES IT WILL!

A Brief Message To All The Republican Politicians Who Didn’t Have The Balls To Run Against Trump And Cruz…


Shut the hell up about a contested convention already! You have exactly ZERO credibility, and your constant blather about the possibility of someone other than Trump or Cruz being nominated by the GOP this summer is suicidally stupid. You sound like a gaggle of leftist college students in search of a ‘safe space’ so they can continue to ignore reality. Are you really so disconnected from your voter base that you honestly believe they will tolerate a bunch of establishment cronies ignoring their will and choosing some RINO squish to run against the Clinton machine this fall? When will you losers get it through your thick heads that YOU CREATED TRUMP! He’s the anti-establishment monster and you are Victor Frankenstein, so stop whining like spoiled 5-year-olds and try to make peace with the fact that you are now reaping what you have sown.

Noted RINO Douchbag Who Recently Joked About Killing Ted Cruz On Senate Floor Is Now Going To Fundraise For Him

Mad, Mad World Update: Lindsey Graham To Fundraise For Ted Cruz? – Politistick

.

.
Heads are spinning at the speed of light over the news that establishment RINO Lindsey Graham is going to be fundraising for… constitutional conservative Ted Cruz.

Just days ago, Graham said that, “If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you,” a clear joke, but nevertheless a clear indication of Graham’s feelings toward Cruz.

Hell has just officially frozen over.

.

.
But apparently, he sees Ted Cruz as preferable to bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump.

CNN reports that Lindsey Graham will be holding a fundraiser for Ted Cruz during the AIPAC policy conference in Washington next week, that he now sees Cruz as “the best alternative to Donald Trump, and that he now plans to “help Ted in every way I can.”

The draft copy of the invitation obtained by CNN invites guests to “honor and support a great friend of Israel and the Jewish people.”

Graham reiterated that Cruz is not his first preference but that he sees no way for RINO Ohio Governor John Kasich to win in the current political environment.
.

“He’s certainly not my preference, but he’s a reliable Republican, conservative, which I’ve had many differences with,” the South Carolina Republican said. “John Kasich is the most viable general election candidate. I just don’t see how John gets through the primary. This is an outsider year, and he is an insider.”

.
Last week, Ted Cruz picked up his first Senate endorsement, Senator Mike Lee from Utah.
