Why Breitbart Website Is Fundraising For Ted Cruz…

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 CruzKeep 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 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

♦  Christian Science Monitor article showing how much Mercer is invested in Ted Cruz HERE  The New York Times goes into greater detail 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.

    Here in Houston, the conservative movement to get Cruz in the Senate was huge. Myself and many a conservative Texans were overjoyed with him winning.

    Since then he has made some unusual choices to say the least. I initially contributed to his campaign. I stopped supporting him a few months back. This and several other recent developments show to me I made a good choice.

    Some of my less informed conservative coworkers still like him. Overall though I see him going down in my group of friends and colleagues. This may just be my personal observation, but I find it odd he is going up in the polls. This won’t be good for Brietbart or Cruz in my opinion.

      Yes, add me to the list in Texas. I’ve been trying to post the facts on him as much as I can. We thought we had a great Tea Party victory. But now we have more information on him like his record of flip flops and donors – and wife who works for CFR Goldman Sachs. But it’s still hard to believe that he is most likely a fraud. He is so fantastic at saying the “right” things in the most believable ways. Very “talented”.
      I had heard he was THE best in college as a student attorney of taking the side of his opposition and pleading that case, even though he didn’t really believe it. But after noting all the things we now know, even if you gave him the benefit of the doubt — as Sundance says, there is no pathway for victory and he’s very “risky”, which we can’t afford.
      It’s a no brainer that we need the only one who isn’t beholden to any donors and for sure NOT a NWO Globalist that has all the unique qualities to confront & wrest the power from the Globalists that rule…..and electable.
      We need another “Elite” to match and win over the other “Elites” and therefore – Trump!
      I just hope enough Texans see the light and not vote for Cruz in the Primaries, as the Establishment wants.

        The money quote “he was THE best in college as a student attorney of taking the side of his opposition and pleading that case, even though he didn’t really believe it.” Like taqqiya. This is not the person to trust. If he’s the smartest person in the Senate he would not have believed McConnell on TPP/TPA, nor if he were the most ethical would he have voted on anything to expose a fallacy or conspiracy. You don’t throw gasoline on the stove to expose that it is hot.

Rather than having a man who has a plan, we have a man who is created to fit what they think we want. Does that remind you of anyone else? Do people like this even have an honest belief or opinion of their own? He is not only owned by his donors, he is owned by a system that would operate this way. We need TRUMP to clean this mess up. He is right…campaign finance is a disaster.

        Cruz is about as far from establishment as it gets. I see Trump as MUCH more politically establishment than Cruz. Face it, the reason that the GOPe doesn’t like Trump is because they can’t control him, not because his ideology is adverse to theirs (except for immigration of course).

        Ultimately, if POTUS, Trump will try to get along with the GOPe. I don’t see any evidence that Cruz is anything but a disestablishmentarian and will be a continual thorn in the side of the GOPe were he to win the WH.

        I’d like to hope that Trump would be a conservative thorn as well, but at least with Cruz, we have ample evidence that he is his own man.

          You forgot at least two more things the GOPe hates about Trump, fair trade and sending the migrants back. As many others have said it here, there is no pathway to victory for Cruz, and the Trump/Cruz ticket illusion is just as bad. A VP is chosen because he can help win a state, and/or help with Congress. Cruz not only can’t win a state (Texas is in the bag already), he will scare away the crossover vote and he has no friends in Congress.

          • Beeblebrox says:

            I disagree with your analysis on two major points.

            A.) liberal Republicans lose presidential elections, conservatives win. This is historical fact. Trump is MUCH more liberal than Cruz so on this point, it is more likely, based on past experience, that Cruz has a more likely chance to win than Trump. This goes to your last assertion, that Cruz needs crossover votes. That may be but don’t be blind to the fact that this also applies to Trump. Trump has the blue collar and independent vote but needs the conservative vote.

            Trump is the splitter candidate running right now. He is taking away votes from the conservative in the race, Cruz. The people who are supporting Trump – that would have otherwise supported Cruz – are the people that like Trump’s “up yours” attitude WRT the GOPe. Cruz is brash, just not as much as Trump. This is appealing.

            But many, like yours truly, don’t necessarily believe Trump is a conservative. Look at Rubio, who ran as a hard core Tea Party candidate. Likewise Flake and Ayotte. I’m wary of Trump because he is the consummate marketer. That’s my business as well so I appreciate his skill in this regard. But let’s not fool ourselves. Trump found a market niche (immigration) and rode to the top on that issue. Bully for him. But it’s not like he was a big border hawk in the past.

            B.) VPs need to be able to carry states? This has not been true for awhile. Veeps have been chosen of late to balance ideology or to provide gravitas. Was Cheney chosen for any other reason than to add experience and ideological heft to the Bush run? Was Biden chosen to nail down Delaware or to help Obama get legislation through Congress?

            Don’t think so. Obama needed anti-impeachment insurance, that’s it.

            McCain would have flamed out as one of the biggest losers in history if not for Palin and I guarantee she was not chosen to help McCain take Alaska.

            Romney picked Ryan because he was a fiscal hawk (ostensibly) because Romney was a known big spender.

            This is why Cruz needs Trump or Trump needs Cruz. They need each other’s constituencies and supporters. The question might be however, if they don’t choose each other, might either do a Reagan and pick a GHWB as veep in order to prevent the GOPe from sabotaging their runs for the WH?

            Personally, I can’t see a state that Trump needs that a veep would help him with. And with Cruz at the top of the ticket, he needs Trump’s supporters more than he needs a specific state.

            No, these days, the ticket needs to be ideologically balanced to get a win, IMO.

              A lot of things in your post. First, this is not a typical election, this is a do-or-die election. Trump is not a liberal republican, and he’s not a conservative if by conservative you are talking about our typical ones of years past, you know, the open-borders, free-trader globalists. If the word is to have any meaning at all, what is more conservative than wanting to conserve your country, your history, your culture and your heritage? Trump is the leader of a revolutionary movement that goes beyond the Republican Party. So many times in history, when the time is ripe, a leader appears. He/she (Joan of Arc) can be great, he can be merely good, or he can be bad. We can’t mold him into a perfect leader, so you have to go to war with the leader you have, and that leader at this moment is Trump. Period.

              I believe you’re wrong in that Trump is not getting conservative votes; for the first time since Reagan, Trump is getting votes from all groups, whether ideology, race, age, sex, income, etc. And he’ll be the ONLY one getting poor whites, blacks, even Hispanics (like me!). Whatever few conservatives Cruz can get above Trump, if at all, Trump will more than overcome with crossover votes.

              The rest of your long post is repeating the same things.

              Finally, Trump is beating Hillary in most polls. Cruz can’t beat Hillary in ONE poll. Period. You lost.

                I didn’t lose. You’re speculating. I happen to agree with Levin. Only a conservative can win. Cruz can easily beat Hillary. So can Trump (unless he starts alienating Cruz supporters like he has with Carson’s).

                Trump is NOT the leader of anything but an FU movement. He is decidedly not a movement conservative and he will have to work hard to convince people he actually is more than a blatant opportunist (my personal opinion moderated by the fact that I think he is also a lover of the country so maybe he might come through for that reason alone.)

                I don’t want to pick too many fights with the Trump supporter by making the exact same claims about Cruz that you are making about Trump (although I think Cruz better fits the very definition of a conservative than Trump. )

                But as I’ve said, I could live with Trump and would vote for him in the General. I would never write in Cruz just because he didn’t get the nom, that would be moronic.

                  Good. What we need now is a large vocal majority willing to say “FU” to the Uniparty Establishment. They call us “vulgarians” and we owned it. If we’re an “FU movement” I’ll proudly own that too.
                  I never believed Trump is a “movement conservative”, whatever that means. I DO believe he really will take steps to secure our borders, stop illegal immigration, and help Americans protect themselves from Jihadists.

                  If Trump fails, America as a relatively free Constitutional Republic is gone forever. If he succeeds we can proceed to other subjects like the national debt and repealing Obamacare.

                  No matter how you feel about Cruz, he is no more constitutionally eligible to be president or vp, than Obama was, which is not at all. The fact that Obama won twice can be attributed to ignorance of what “natural born citizen” means. Obama could have been born in the White House and still would not be eligible, simply because his Kenyan father was not a citizen. Cruz was born in Canada to a U.S. citizen mother and a Cuban immigrant father who was NOT a citizen until 2005. A child born abroad of even two citizen parents is only a “naturalized” citizen-at-birth, made so by congressional statute. There are conditions to be met for him to have been made a citizen at all. Did his mother go to the nearest embassy or consulate and apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA)? If so, it has not been released, but he released his Canadian birth certificate. He may not be a U.S. citizen at all, if there was no CRBA issued. He is NOT eligible for the presidency. Naturalized citizens have never been eligible for the presidency.
                  Rubio was born in Miami, but his Cuban immigrant parents didn’t become citizens until Marco was 4 years old. He is a 14th Amendment citizen, but NOT a natural born citizen and not eligible for the presidency.
                  Jindal has dropped out of the race now, but he also was not constitutionally eligible, since he was born in Baton Rouge only a little over 4 months after his parents arrived here from India. They were here legally, but were not citizens at the time he was born. NOT a “natural born citizen” and NOT eligible for the presidency or vice presidency.

                  Birth on U.S. soil or in its jurisdiction + citizen father + citizen mother = natural born citizen.

                  You are rewriting history. Cruz supporters have consistently attacked Trump supporters. RS has become a toxic cesspool that conservatives avoid.
                  There was never any need for Trump supporters to attack Cruz. He was NEVER and still is NOT a threat.

                  Cruz supporters were warned from the beginning that they were hurting their candidate. Conservatives had no problem with Ted. They had a problem with the juvenile, envious behavior of Cruz supporters.

                  Cruz lost conservatives when he supported Corker, wrote TPA with Paul Ryan, and published an Op/ed with him in the WSJ.

                  Actions have consequences.

                  Cruz is NOT a conservative. He is a “blatant opportunist” that never had any intention of fighting those old, corrupt, dinosaurs in the senate.

                  Cruz always was running for POTUS with the same qualifications as 0bama.

              Funny how unable you are to cite sources that support your personal view of Trump. I have followed available sources enough to know what Trump is about. If you have said sources, please do go ahead and share them. The only thing Trump could be said to have “changed” his mind about, is abortion.

              I qualify “change” because I don’t believe he had a mindset toward it, as it in no way concerned his life. When he was asked about it he gave an answer and then consulted trusted physicians to inform himself. That information, along with a personal experience re good friends of his, led to his change of mind. That noted change took place in 1999.

              If you have sources for your blather about “more liberal than Cruz”,et al, please do share them. I won’t go searching for them myself, because they are not out there.

              Flip flopping betraying TeaParty politicians have actions that tell the story better than words – Cruz has plenty of actions to naysay his words if people have the integrity to open their eyes to the truth.

              Even politicians can change their minds, I’m sure, but when they’re owned, with their financial wherewithal in the hands of GOPe and obvious globalists – that change will never be to We The People – money would be gone, politician would be done.

              I don’t believe there is any way to refute that truth, any more than you could refute the facts that Cruz is financed by big money/big power GOPe. You can dispute them, but you can never refute them because the facts are there in black and white – waiting for you to open your mind to them … unless of course you are a troll – which it seems likely you are.

As Trump IS the wind clearing confusion and enabling issues people really care about come to the forefront, every one of the sold out, agenda centered “wonks” are running as fast as they can from far behind to just catch up let alone overtake President Trump. As to his policies, they ARE well defined and haven’t changed during his run. There are more policy papers released by President Trump than any candidate so far, if I’m not mistaken.

              You also imply Trump does not address questions directly, yet I’ve never seen anyone more slippery than Cruz in an interview when he’s he doesn’t want to be held down to answering a question. It’s tiresome, his stuttering, aw shucks(ter) attitude as he avoids whatever he sees as pitfalls for himself.

Of course if there are no sources, it’s hard to cite them. Oh it would be helpful if those cited cover positions he hasn’t changed since running for prez. TIA

              Also it was many years ago he spoke of single-payor healthcare working – he has stated since he announced, that it would have worked at that time, but it is no longer viable.

              If you believe he has advocated for single payer now, then you have fallen for MSM misquoting, misdirecting, or twisting of his words.

It’s more like they aren’t fighting him back, not since the famous shutdown days that he was blamed for.
          On the other hand we have years of evidence that Trump is a boss in every way, no one is more his own man. He’s been saying since 1988 at least that Wall Street doesn’t particularly like him, and the operating construct around here is that Wall Street == Establishment. I’m curious how anyone could think he is establishment.

You do realize that if Cruz’ mom had been in say, Iceland, instead of Canada, that he would not be an Icelander. Anchor baby laws elsewhere should not be a justification for a foreign country to claim our citizens. Likewise, the US should not be claiming Mexican citizens as our own.

        Cruz is an NBC because if he is NOT then he is an outright illegal and can’t even be a Senator. He was NEVER naturalized and if, as you claim, he is not natural born, then he is not a citizen at all.

        To be an NBC one needs to have one parent who is a citizen. This is common law understanding. This is also the current accepted standard so your assertion is just that. An assertion.

        William Jacobson over at Legal Insurrection has answered these claims from a conservative legal perspective. It’s worth reading.

          Whatever Jacobson or anyone else said, you can find others to contradict. It was a big issue in 2008 and there’s no way to solve it without the Supreme Court (another reason Cruz should not be on the SC, he would have an interest in the outcome). And that ain’t happening before Nov. 2016. But what would happen if Cruz were nominated is that Hillary’s camp, who completely own this issue, would bring out the old arguments. It didn’t work against Obama and now he is an argument for the “one parent, born anywhere is ok” position. However, it would stir up controversy and doubt against Cruz.

          No matter how you feel about Cruz, he is no more constitutionally eligible to be president or vp, than Obama was, which is not at all. The fact that Obama won twice can be attributed to ignorance of what “natural born citizen” means. Obama could have been born in the White House and still would not be eligible, simply because his Kenyan father was not a citizen. Cruz was born in Canada to a U.S. citizen mother and a Cuban immigrant father who was NOT a citizen until 2005. A child born abroad of even two citizen parents is only a “naturalized” citizen-at-birth, made so by congressional statute. There are conditions to be met for him to have been made a citizen at all. Did his mother go to the nearest embassy or consulate and apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA)? If so, it has not been released, but he released his Canadian birth certificate. He may not be a U.S. citizen at all, if there was no CRBA issued. He is NOT eligible for the presidency. Naturalized citizens have never been eligible for the presidency.
          Rubio was born in Miami, but his Cuban immigrant parents didn’t become citizens until Marco was 4 years old. He is a 14th Amendment citizen, but NOT a natural born citizen and not eligible for the presidency.
          Jindal has dropped out of the race now, but he also was not constitutionally eligible, since he was born in Baton Rouge only a little over 4 months after his parents arrived here from India. They were here legally, but were not citizens at the time he was born. NOT a “natural born citizen” and NOT eligible for the presidency or vice presidency.

          Birth on U.S. soil or in its jurisdiction + citizen father + citizen mother = natural born citizen.

          “Rogers v. Bellei, 401 U.S. 815 (1971), was a decision by the United States Supreme Court, which held that an individual who received an automatic congressional grant of citizenship at birth, but who was born outside the United States, may lose his citizenship for failure to fulfill any reasonable residence requirements which the United States Congress may impose as a condition subsequent to that citizenship.
          The appellee, Aldo Mario Bellei, was born in Italy to an Italian father and an American mother. He acquired U.S. citizenship by virtue of section 1993 of the Revised Statutes of 1874, which conferred citizenship upon any child born outside the United States of only one American parent (known as jus sanguinis). Bellei received several warnings from government officials that failure to fulfill the five-year residency requirement before age 28 could result in loss of his U.S. citizenship. In 1964, he received a letter informing him that his citizenship had been revoked under § 301(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952. Bellei challenged the constitutionality of this act. The three-judge District Court held the section unconstitutional, citing Afroyim v. Rusk, and Schneider v. Rusk. The Supreme Court reversed the decision, ruling against Bellei.”
          Read this. “The appellee, Aldo Mario Bellei, was born in Italy to an Italian father and an American mother. He acquired U.S. citizenship by virtue of section 1993 of the Revised Statutes of 1874, which conferred citizenship upon any child born outside the United States of only one American parent (known as jus sanguinis). 1874, got it? Automatic naturalized citizenship granted by congressional statutes. He wound up losing his naturalized citizenship because he didn’t fulfill the requirement to reside in the U.S. for the prescribed period of time, but he originally acquired his “naturalized” citizenship in the same manner that Ted Cruz did. Ted did fulfill the required residence, but that still does NOT make him a natural born citizen. He is not eligible for the presidency!

        Cruz is not a natural born citizen and NOT constitutionally eligible for the presidency or vice presidency. Children born abroad of citizen parents are “naturalized-by-congressional-statute” citizens, even if both parents are U.S. citizens. They are naturalized at birth with no need for further naturalization processing other than the citizen parent/parents having to go to the nearest embassy or consulate and apply for a CRBA (Consular Report of Birth Abroad). The parent must prove that the child was born to them in the foreign country and if all conditions are met, the CRBA is issued, registering the child as a citizen, a “naturalized” citizen. No naturalized citizen has ever been eligible for the presidency.
        Rubio and Jindal were both born in the U.S. but none of their respective parents were citizens at the time their sons were born. They are not constitutionally eligible for the presidency or vp, either.

          I honestly don’t get it.

          Trump is a disaster on several major issues of concern to both social and Econ conservatives such as tariffs (the last time we went the direction that Trump wants to go in this area, Smoot/Hawley contributed to the Great Depression.) And he is weak in a number of other areas of conservative/Constitutional principles.

          As a stalwart Constitutionalist, that’s not going to stop me from voting for him if he’s the nominee, but I still hope we can nominate a true conservative. If we can’t, I’ll live with Trump. But to stay home if your choice is Cruz is mystifying unless you are just simply not a conservative.

          Let me ask people here this; if Trump were running on the Democrat ticket against Cruz on the Republican ticket, who would the Libs vote for?

          I think we know that Cruz’ conservatism makes him untenable to the Left. Trump, OTOH, has enough liberal policy history to get at least some Libs to vote for him. C’mon, you know it’s true.

          Now, if the argument then is that this makes Trump more electable then fine. I could see that. But it doesn’t make him more conservative than Cruz. There is simply no way that dog hunts.

The argument about Trump and the liberal stuff for me doesn’t apply he was a citizen not a politician. If you have followed Trump and read his books he is very consistent in his beliefs now and then.
              His answer on single payer was an honest answer from a businessman who wanted to fix the problem. He believed it could work, it fits with what has always said I can get things done and make them work. On social issue stuff I believe the saying is true that on those issues a lot of us evolve into more conservative as we age. The whole issue of imminent domain is funny because you then have an issue with the entire Rupublican party then. Again I don’t begrudge him following laws he didn’t make.

            I like Cruz, but the biggest issue for me, is that he is unelectable. Hillary would win.

            Trump can attract such a broad swath of the electorate that he is putting the fear of god into the Democrats. Trump could even get a union endorsement, which would be like what Reagan had. Trump will get voters that either haven’t voted before or voters that sat the last election out. Cruz can’t get any of that period.

            And as much as people always want to ignore the elephant in the room – personality.
            Romney lost even though he won on practically every issue. WHY? because he did not inspire anyone and he did not connect with voters. Cruz has exactly the same problem, perhaps even worse. Nothing can change that reality.

            Trump has the personality and inspiration on a level that could only be surpassed by Reagan. That in a nutshell will be what it will come down to for some low information voters, don’t underestimate the importance of what that means.

            Let me give you some examples:

            ABC 20/20 – you think Cruz could come across like that ???
            People Magazine – you think Cruz would even get the interview ???

            Trump is right on the key issues, he has the personality to sell the deal (crucial).

            Don’t get swayed by Cruz attacking the media sound bytes, that is all fine and dandy in a debate format, but you have to do that on a daily basis and relentlessly, you also have to play them at their own game. Trump is on another level when it comes to this stuff. I have never seen anyone handle the media like this guy, it is like he is operating in another dimension. The IOWA destruction of Carson was extraordinary.

            This is not a time for taking another risk. This is the future of the country, This could be the most important election in American history. This is the time for a revolution. This is the time for Trump. This is the time to take the fight to Hillary, the Clinton Machine and the Media, and Trump is the only candidate who is formidable enough to smash them and win.

            No one knows what “more conservative” means anymore. It was always a relative term and now it’s relative to no standard at all. Get over the labels–look at long-term records of achievement and consistency of positions and actions. You are trumpeting Cruz’s stated constitutionalist positions–he does talk a pretty good game in that regard. Problem is, Cruz has virtually no achievements in national politics, conservative or otherwise. He has been a follower or thrall, whether intentionally or unwittingly, of the worst of the GOP establishment. He has not authored or sponsored a single bill that I know of to stop <0bum0’s monarchical agendas and actions and/or to restrict federal government to its constitutional limits. If you know of one/some, please enlighten us. From what I can see, Cruz’s words don’t fit his actions at all. Cruz’s actions, to the extent they have had any consequence at all, are consistent with Mitch McConnell’s and John Boehner’s or for that matter, Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid–they’re all functionally the same.

            We are no longer interested in pols who talk a good game, but do the opposite. In fact, we’re actively opposed to them, as anyone who values truth, honesty, integrity, and achievement must be. Trump may not be a constitutional scholar, but he’s gotten a whole lot more done in his life and built a legacy that has employed, enriched, and served hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people. His financial, real estate, and personal, human capital is in the U.S.A. and is reliant on maintenance of the rule of law. He is in the same boat as every one of us with a job and a home in this nation. He has not been part of the political class, though he has operated on its margins and knows it well; that has let him see how pols, evade the law, refuse to enforce law that he and we are forced to follow, and how blithely they are willing to destroy our nation just to keep riding their tawdry gravy train of campaign donations and PAC money.

            We have had enough of the political nattering nabobs, like Cruz who say one thing and do another or do nothing. Trump is more a weapon to destroy their and their handlers’ stranglehold on the system than he is a mere candidate. There is no candidate that all of us will agree on in all respects. Therefore, we need to recognize and galvanize with a candidate who has demonstrated the ability to do what needs to be done in the next 4-8 years. In this election cycle and given the choices presented, Trump is clearly that candidate. If you don’t get it, well, God bless your little heart.

        Cruz is not for illegals in any way. He has also explained his Ammendment to the Gang o’ 8 bill for H1Bs. By now, any informed Treeper should know that conservative’s ammendments were being blocked so Cruz, seeking to make a point, submitted an Ammendment that Dems had no reason to block, the H1B ammendment. Yet it was still blocked, proving the point that the conservatives were trying to make.

        In any case, we know that Cruz doesn’t have a 100% CR score. No one is saying he does. However, if CR were rating Trump on his past positions, he would probably be in Paul Ryan territory. What we’re all hoping is that Trump’s current rhetoric will supersede his past actions. I tend to think Trump will attempt to make good on at least his immigration claims. That’s his signature campaign promise (along with now bombing ISIS to smitherines). So I’m hopeful.

          So am I. Here’s why I think it will:

          1) Trump’s past actions were made/said while a private citizen, not while an elected member of congress, like other politicians with a political record.
          2) Trump would not have had the platform from which to write “The Art of the Deal” and other books if, as a pattern, his word was not his bond. Deals like Trump’s don’t get made if you have a dishonest reputation.
          3) Trump has not only created the Trump brand, he is an active manager of it. How would it benefit the Trump name/reputation/brand if he became POTUS and did a 180 on anything he campaigned on? Of course he won’t be able to accomplish everything because he’ll have to deal with congress, but I firmly don’t believe it will be because he changed his mind or changed course. Wishy washy flippy floppy does not describe Donald Trump. It is for the mere reason alone that Trump is beholden to zero donors that I find him more trustworthy than anyone else in the race.

    I always admired Ted Cruz for standing up to the Washigton monopolists, which is why I was astonished to hear he favored the TPP. But that all makes sense now- Turns out he’s just another puppet dancing for Wall Street dollars.

      According to the Des Moines Register, Cruz said he is “deeply concerned” with the trade pact.

      “While Cruz said he supports free trade, he believes the Trans-Pacific Partnership would undermine U.S. immigration laws and the nation’s sovereignty,” reported the Des Moines Register.

      “… I intend to vote against TPP.”

            • “Positions” are legislative intents by politicians which actually have a possibility to impact your life.
            • “Opinions” are carried by every person, not in the political apparatus, and do not have any impact on the life of a broader constituency.

              Sundance is correct – positions, not opinions.

              What everyone does not seem to see is that these things are planned years, if not decades in advance. Cruz has played the game. There’s an old saying in politics that if it happens, it was planned that way. Trump has upset that plan.

              Do many really believe that his entire stunt reading Green Eggs and Ham was not contrived for a purpose? He voted for the Trade Promotion Authority, which changed the way the Senate ratifies Treaties and now he can say he’s against it. Since they will now only need a simple majority, as opposed to 2/3, there will be plenty of Senators not at-risk who will vote for it. Much like Senators go ahead and vote for Cloture to advance legislation while claiming they are against it and then those that are not at risk are “allowed” to vote for it. My Senator Burr has done that many times and I’ve called him on it.

              Do you really believe John Boehner’s negative comment about Cruz was not leaked for a purpose? He was supposedly a “constitutional” scholar and he didn’t know what that meant? He’s a Canuk and doesn’t understand the plain meaning and supporting documents by the Founders who put in the 14th Amendment.

              I can’t get past his Texas connections, the Bushes whom he worked for and his wife who not only works for Goldman Sachs, but who is involved with the CFR and wrote the position paper on the North American Union.

              These people have gotten this far with their plans because they have deceived the public for decades. I remember reading an article about why Robert Redford never ran for office. He told the story of the Kennedy Center honors of how, behind closed doors, these people were the best of friends and how astonished he was that one of Teddy Kennedy’s most bitter (public) rivals actually stood there and gave Teddy Kennedy a back rub. Think how many times John McCain said “my good friend Hillary Clinton.” And, the Clinton’s and Bushes have been friends for decades.

              I thought Cruz was a slimy charlatan long before Trump announced he was running. He’s just one of many playing the game. These people disgust me.

              The idea that Cruz through out an amendment with horrible terms drastically to increase H1B visas just as a feint or “to prove a point” is beyond absurd. If he actually did it for that purpose, he’s a petty game player not worthy of even his current position. If he did it because he believed in what the amendment provided, he’s a seditious, anti-American, globalist scumbag. Anyone can have their own opinion about which one to pick.

          I truly appreciate the stones you have uncovered, and am stunned at the detail you discover. I don’t necessarily agree with all conclusions (who would expect anyone to). In response to this, I would have to say Cruz provided his reasoning behind the initial TPA (McConnell lying), and it would make sense that distrust would now translate toward TPP. Trump was for single payer health care. Trump tried to use eminent domain. None of our candidates are gifts from Heaven. Cruz may have backing from some big money guys, but money is needed in these campaigns. Trump is unique in not needing it (yet). I am still a Cruz supporter, and still would vote for anybody (except Bush) in the general, if it means Hillary is the only other outcome. Also, let me thank you for all the info you have provided.

            Regarding TPA (which is fast track trade authority) you act like he was a person who just had it come across his desk, that’s not accurate.

            The reality is Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan created the TPA plan together in March/April ’15. Ryan then went to work in the House, and Cruz went to work in the Senate. The entire design of the TPA construct – which I will remind you was to get TPP passed – was legislatively mapped out and designed by Cruz and Ryan.

            It’s disingenuous to say Cruz didn’t/doesn’t support TPP when he is the person responsible for creating the vehicle for it.

    Cruz will not be elected, no matter what they do. All these media hack have to know that. So what would be the only rational explanation for trying to boost Cruz? To chip away at support for Trump.

    The original strategy works if they can bring Trumps numbers down a bit and rise up several others to about 15-20% through the primaries. The main problem that they are having with their strategy is the giant lead that Trump has. They will have a really hard time explaining that come the primaries.

    As noted in SD’s rundown of the splitter strategy, it has always required an extremely fractured support among the anyone-but-Bush voters. This is how they planned to slide Jeb into the nomination despite his low support. They knew from the very beginning that Jeb was going to have low support or they wouldn’t have needed this elaborate strategy to begin with.

    Even the leftist media still pretends that Jeb is the likely nominee even while he is polling at 4% At 4%!! He is down there with candidates that couldn’t even make it to the kiddie table. But the media still treats him like the assumed candidate.

    My point is that they have been listening. Most Trump supporters have declared that they also like Cruz and Carson. So they realized that they could throw those two at him and knock off a few fence-sitters.

    The entire goal is to bring up as many of the original splitter candidates as possible. The problem with Carson was that his numbers got too high. So the GOPe had to make an ‘adjustment’. Breitbart went from heavily defending Carson while he was rising to now several negative stories about Carson. This is the ‘adjustment.’ Build them up, then knock them down a little to get as many candidates at between 15-20% as possible. They don’t need any of them to beat Trump. They just need to erode away that huge lead.

      This argument is simply ludicrous. Who jumped into the race first, Cruz or Trump? By this argument, the actual “splitter” is Trump. If he hadn’t jumped in, Cruz would be the first choice of all conservatives. With Trump joining the fray (which he certainly has the right to do, even if he is the obvious splitter) he’s sucking votes away from Cruz (and Carson). The very definition of a splitter.

      I personally think that either Cruz or Trump can beat Hillary but some are worried that Cruz can be more easily vilified because the Media is good at painting conservatives as evil.

      Trump is harder to vilify because he simply does not have the conservative bona fides and doesn’t even try to come off as ideologically conservative. He’s like a more savvy and likable version of Romney than anything. And people like that. I know I do.

      So the Media doesn’t know what to do with him.

      What is disappointing to me is how many people lie about Cruz. People who should know better. For example: https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2015/11/wsj-wrong-on-cruz-again

    As many of you might already know, I comment frequently on Breitbart. Mainly for two reasons: Cut through the BS with my wit & humor, and for a much needed creative outlet. I particularly enjoy slamming the recent wave of rabid CruzBots that have been swarming there lately. Angry, angry, pious CruzBots and their crusade for Conservative Purity.

    I was aware of the financial ties to Cruz at BB (can’t remember where I read about it…awhile back), but Sundance has delved into much more detail. Thank you Sundance. As always, you all at the Treehouse are exceptional.

    Additionally, regarding Ben Shapiro (writer & editor @ BB): He has a morning show out here in Southern California that is broadcast via Salem Media. I will occasionally tune in to see what they’re propagandizing. What I’ve found is he consistently insults, dismisses and denigrates Trump at every opportunity. Do not doubt it for one moment, Shapiro has an agenda.

    I plan to keep commenting on BB, and I will add a third priority to my postings (which I’ve already been doing): Spread the Word about The Conservative Treehouse and additionally Joe Dan’s great site Intellectual Froglegs. If not for Brietbart, I would not have discovered the Treehouse myself. I’m so glad I did.

      I NEVER signed up for either Breitbart’s mailing list OR for the Daily Caller’s. However, I HAVE tried to email stories to friends, using either my G-mail or AOL email addresses as the Sender. A couple things–very different; both hinky………

      First, to follow up to comments made last nite over in the #BLM/ Dartmouth “protest” thread, I too have experienced many of the most Conservative-leaning articles sent thru my G-mail address never get thru to my friend I sent them to. Same thing when I sent a few to my AOL address. I had COMPLETELY thought this was just me, being my usual little Internet-Inept self; never “suspected” nothin’. But apparently I’m not alone.

      Back OT, I’ve now gotten solicitations for BOTH Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, but via Daily Caller, not Breitbart.

      I wrote to both campaigns and Daily Caller, & let them know how appalling I found it that they sold my email, when I had NEVER EVEN SIGNED UP FOR THEIR MAILING LIST AT ALL (just sent articles from the site).

      One last, unrelated-but-weird thing–AOL has recorded several of my “Upvotes” to other Commenters as “Downvotes”. Nothing to “protest” over, certainly, but there surely IS a YUGE Psy-Ops battle being waged on MANY fronts. I know now it’s not just that I’m “bad at computer stuff”, LOL.

    The reason I left TRS was because it became “Ted Cruz is the messiah and Trump is the Devil”, which ticked me off because until Trump came along I was a hardcore Ted Cruz fan. I still like him, and I think when the dust settles Cruz and Trump supporters are the same group. We will all be on the same page in the end. For all we know they will be on the same ticket–Trump always has nice things to say about Cruz.

    NOW I understand why Breitbart has inexplicably given so much support to Kelli Ward, in Arizona. She is so RINO that she is like a new Boehner-in-waiting! And she is running against John McCain in his next bid for re-election.

    Ward came to our GOP legislative district meeting, to introduce herself, when she was first serving in the AZ state legislature. She started out by explaining that she had decided to run for office, NOT because she had any interest in being a politician, but as a grassroots conservative who could no longer stand by while politicians continued going against real conservative values. But within minutes, talking about her history as an emergency room physician, she inadvertantly mentioned that she had always “been very political” and involved, in medical circles, So, clearly, the woman has an innate desire for public office. Ms. Ward also inadvertantly reveals the “I-know-better” mentality that so typifies RINOs. Her positions on issues reflect this.

    I must say that Andrew Breitbart would be turning over in his grave, to know that his organization is being used to further the good fortunes of selected candidates, without publically announcing.their conflict of interest. How dare they! With Fox, and now Breitbart falling in my estimation, there’s now nothing left to respect, but the Treehouse gang.

    Okay, so I find this article a bit hilarious, and not in a good way. Heaven forbid that a conservative blog like Breitbart would support the most conservative candidate running.

    It has never been a secret that Breitbart is in the Cruz camp – why wouldn’t they be? However, to say that Breitbart is the “political operation” of the Cruz campaign is frankly, juvenile. Breitbart predates the Cruz run just like CTH predates Trump’s campaign. And if everyone here is honest, you have to admit that CTH is MUCH more in the tank for Trump than Breitbart is for Cruz. In fact, I see MANY more positive Trump stories over there than I ever do Cruz stories here at the Treehouse.

    After awhile, anti-Cruz writing like we see here in this particular column gets tiring. Yes, we get that you have to rah rah for Trump but really, is he so weak that he needs this kind of innuendo In order to survive to the convention?

    Personally, I think Trump is a much stronger candidate than many here apparently think he is. Trump has many strong points. Ironically, his connections to other interests is much more questionable than Cruz’. Cruz has never bought and sold politicians like Trump has. People sa this “goes with the territory for a billionaire developer”, well fine. But taking funding from conservative billionaires seems more noble to me than being a billionaire finding people like Hillary Clinton. Even as a Cruz supporter, I’ll overlook some of Trump’s past dealings if he can accomplish what he says he will accomplish. I’ll trust and hope to be able to verify.

    But notice that Cruz is not highlighting Trump’s dubious political history. I believe that Cruz likes Trump and vice versa. I think it is likely that the two of them may eventually be on the same ticket. But here we are reading “reporting” that implies that Cruz is in someone else’s pocket, an unfair slur that seems unworth of this blog. It certainly does. Otho g to advance the conservative movement of which Cuz is the most high profile champion inside D.C.

    Personally, I think when Breitbart is one of your biggest media supporters, Cruz has the right friends. I expect that eventually Levin will endorse him as well.

    But I say, allow Trump to win the nomination without attempting to pigeonhole his more conservative competition as some kind of puppet.

      See the difference is, we are honest. We don’t try to hide it. We have openly written, several times, “Why I Support Donald Trump”, our reasoning clearly laid out and expanded over time.

      The larger issue is one of manipulation or deception. The approach of the Breitbart website regarding Cruz is based on deception. Then again, the candidacy of Ted Cruz is based on deception – so it makes sense they would be simpatico. I digress.

      “the most conservative candidate”

      There’s that phrase again.

      Cruz has been in the senate for not quite 3 years. In that time, he has somehow managed to always end up with his hands in the same messes that he later comes out and gives grand speeches against. Every single time. He always ‘explains’ and excuses how he somehow got caught on the wrong side. That’s all his supporters have – excuses.

      He has less than 3 years in the senate. There is practically no history for anyone to base this ‘most consistent conservative’ propaganda on. And when you look at the facts, it actually says otherwise. Over and over again.

      You know how we know you are a bunch of Cruzbots? Because you keep trying to pound the specific phrase, ‘most consistent conservative’ down everyone’s throat. You use that phrase in every single post about Cruz.

      Cruz himself invented that phrase:
      http://video.bostonherald.com/Ted-Cruz-crowns-himself-most-consistently-conservative-29938428

      And when all of his supposed ‘supporters’ try so hard to keep repeating the exact phrase word for word, repeatedly that Cruz himself invented, it calls into question whether you are an astroturfer.

      I worked in media for years…….. You MUST disclose your endorsements. I am vehemently opposed to any news source proclaiming “Fair and balanced” or similar while simultaneously having an agenda, plan or favorite. A conservative newspaper for instance can write about only conservative news and candidates. The paper is then known as a conservative news outlet. Very fair.

      When they decided to be in the tank for a candidate is when the news becomes slanted. Not fair nor balanced. That is unfair to the unsuspecting readers of the newspaper (or site). For instance, we KNOW the NYTimes is liberal. We KNOW Politico is Liberal etc… We expect them to write liberal gibberish or bash conservative candidates. The ethical way to deal with this is to disclose the intentions, financial ties and endorsements honestly to the folks.

      It is IMHO, an egregious offense for a conservative medium to be in the tank for a candidate without declaring that to the readers. The ethics of this (which should be the most important part) is wrong for both the site and the candidate who participates in such unethical practices.

      I said it was unethical for Dr C to participate (even behind his campaign and SuperPac) in this very same scheme. And it is equally unethical for Cruz. The veins in my neck are popping out right now in disgust and anger.

    ” It’s impossible to predict how Bannon’s plots and intrigues will ultimately affect the presidential race. It’s not even clear on whose behalf he’s acting—his own or someone else’s? Are Seinfeld royalties enough to take on Clinton and Bush? Or do others have a stake? Solov, the CEO, won’t say. “I can’t go into that,” he says. “It’s privately owned.” Bannon wouldn’t comment either. However, a prominent conservative says Robert Mercer, the reclusive co-founder of hedge fund Renaissance Technologies and a major donor to Texas Senator Ted Cruz, has invested $10 million. Mercer’s daughter, Rebekah, is listed in 2013 tax documents as a GAI board member.”

But as I read it, I realized it is a) extending federal aid to education into private and home schools and b) does not abolish federal aid to education entirely. Why should FAE be abolished? Because right now such funding has been used to remove, ENTIRELY, local control of K-12 education.

      I was on a school board for a few horrible years reviewing budgets. Though the amount local districts receive directly is relatively small, much goes to the states, and ALL federal dollars come with strings and massive bureaucracy (read paperwork and content control) attached at every point.

      So, yes S. 306 is bad. Remember: “He who has the Gold, Rules.”

        This is key, Sundance. And it is the reason why Rubio is completely unacceptable despite what his current “position” is on immigration and amnesty. He engaged in a major deception of conservatives in order to pass the Gang of 8 bill through the Senate. That was his assignment, and he carried it out. That he publicly “turned” on his own bill means nothing.

        It’s ALL about the bills that end up passing – the laws that we have to live with. That’s why Donald Trump’s changes in position or backtracking on statements are harmless. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and now Paul Ryan all allow their members to vote for or against controversial or unpopular bills to give them cover for the voters. But the outcome is what matters.

        I don’t think so.

        Trump is owned by his work ethic and he is driven to succeed. Failure is not an option to Trump. With that comes money.

        Trump is using his own money to finance his campaign and a President Trump will not take any compensation.

        Trump loves this country for what it has allowed him to become. His father came to this country with nothing and earned everything he has got. His Dad instilled his work ethic in his son and Trump has instilled it in his children.

        You want to vote for a freshman senator with no executive experience who is not well versed in finance and clueless for how to turn this country around, that is your right.

        But, I’m not accepting the love of money excuse. I’m not a socialist and the money I have accumulated through my hard work has made me very happy and I have been able to assist many.

    Politics is a series of pragmatic compromises. And sometimes no really good choice in those compromises.

    We have two parties, farther apart than ever. The trouble today is the blinded ideology prevents the far ends of either side EVER agreeing with their opposite. You could go out on a sunny day, claim the sky is blue and the other side will scream you are lying because you a racist/bigot/homophobe, etc.

    Leaders lead- everybody- willingly or reluctantly, They also compromise when they have to and stand firm when they must. The key is having enough intelligence and stability of personality/character to be able to know when.

    My mom, a public official for decades was loved and respected by all sides, not because she was liberal or caved or conservative and held firm. She made decisions based on what was best for the greater good- every time. Sometimes that greater good helped one side, sometimes the other.

    When she retired, hundreds upon hundreds of both friends and “enemies” came to her retirement party. One she used to butt heads with for years walked up, shook her hand and said when genuine feeling “We are going to miss you. I will miss you. We may have not agreed a lot, but I always knew where you stood. This new guy…. I don’t know.”

    She told me once she had a plaque on her desk with this saying,

        God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
        The courage to change the things I can,
        And the wisdom to know the difference.
    

    Point is if you are looking for purity and complete compliance to what YOU think is best, you are not going to find it in Cruz, or Trump or Rubio or the rest of the gang. Some will be close, some not even in the ballpark and you kick them down the road.

    If you label people, not having spoken with them or taken the time to find out why they did what they did, you failed yourself more than anyone else. Sure, there are times when it is all black and white. Sadly, in the real world, especially in today’s politics, there is hardly any black and white left. It is almost always gray.

    This is why Trump is so much fun. He’s so basic in his approach- attitude wise. He’s like the Yankee fan from Brooklyn who you try to convince the Mets are a better team by pointing out they have better pitching, hitting and fielding, and his answer always is ” screw the Mets, a bunch of bums! They will never be better than my Yanks!” (My partner for twelve years was from New York and a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan, so I speak from experience about New Yorkers and their teams.)

    But Trump has not really lived the reality of national politics yet. So he can say anything, promise anything, claim anything without someone going- “huh dude, not for nothin’ pal, but last year you did the exact opposite!”

    What we need is character.

    I believe Trump believes in this American nation and that he wants to make it better again. But getting from here to there- in this reality- alone- is impossible. You can bet without allies, he’ll spend far too much time kicking his critics as they bite his ankles like mad chihuahuas. (which I hate!) And he needs help navigating the politics not only here but around the world. Nobody can do it alone.

    If Trump is serious, and he sees America as he claims, both he and Cruz fall in the same vein of character. One may be more pragmatic on his record, the other may end up with a pragmatic record, both always focused on the greater good.

    America.

    That’s a win for us.

          If the dems get into power in either house, Trump will have to live- like Obama- on executive orders. Which only pisses off more people. And they are only valid until the next President rescinds them.

          I believe, and remember this statement (you can beat me up with it later- or not..), Trump will be far more moderate in areas you think now he is strident. Even Reagan gave in a lot more than he wanted to.

          I’m not even sure he’ll shut down Obamacare. Even if he wants to, as Sundance has pointed out elsewhere, there a millions of people and thousands of politicians and businessmen who don’t want it to stop.

I don’t accept most of the allegations and conclusions against Cruz because I’ve been watching him for the past few years in action against many groups and interests, and his actions do speak louder. I’m for Trump because he is a stronger candidate than all the others put together, and I find him refreshingly honest in his own way.

  29. This post is an enlightening one. I did not know that Cruz was backed by Mercer and supported by Breitbart. So is Mercer a conservative or is his only interest in Cruz is his personal financial interests. IE: Is he concerned about the direction this country is going or content with how it is now?
    Cruz lost me some time ago, but he is a firebrand is many ways, but not so much as Trump. Cruz confuses me on some things he has done……….Nothing Trump has done or does now confuses me at all. Trump has my full support.
    It may seem a little corny and strange, but I have the feeling that Trump has been called by the Lord to save this nation, his meteoric rise since he announced his campaign and his continued popularity, despite everything thrown at him, can not be rationalized by any other means….he isn’t running because he wants to be president, he is running because he was called to be president…..(note: the Lord never uses perfect people to do his work, never in history: exception is his son Jesus Christ.)

      If “god” had “chosen” a candidate, it would be a jew, one of the “chosen people”. So your religious superstition is not only stupid, but bigoted.

        Sorry for you to be proved ignorant, but here it is. I refer you to Isaiah 45: 1-8, wherein Cyrus – a Gentile ruler, is annointed by God to serve His people.

    Cruz is definitely my candidate, and I am also a fan of the Breitbart site. I have no problem with your giving out this information, as I believe sunlight cannot hurt an honest movement. It is the stuff that takes place in dark corners of which we must always beware!

      Yup, you can certainly count on Cruz to vet TPP and not let anything get by him even though the agreement is 200% pro-global and anti-sovereign/anti-constitutional and right in front of his eyes. You can count on Cruz to sell you out by pretending to be whatever Conservative you want as long as he can do the Hedge Fund and Goldman Sachs demands behind closed doors. Ask yourself what do banks want?

      Answer: Open doors to every country in the world to sell a pibly savings and chequing account. They just want access to people, the more the better. The Hedge Fund oligarchs have maxed out on taking every cent from hard working Americans trying to save for retirement…….what’s the next step??? Find NEW MARKETS OUTSIDE OF AMERICA.

      The campaign is still in its early stages. Keep an open mind and most importantly, keep your attention on what people do and who can win and deliver on key issues, like enforcement of immigration laws and re-working trade deals to get us out of the international trade doghouse. Additionally, a POTUS candidate needs to have executive experience and capability to downsize and improve efficiency of operations. A guy can have the purest of ideas, the grandest of words, the greatest understanding of history and the Constitution, but if he cannot put those things into practice, he should not be POTUS. Add to those criteria the ability to win in the general.

      If we’re honest with ourselves and keep these factors first in our attention, we’ll make the right choice when casting votes. If we focus on labels, litmus tests, and espoused ideology instead, we’re doomed.

    Cruzers have been trolling Breitbart heavily the last few days. Curious where they are coming from. Not just talking about your run of the mill fan, but nasty people that work in swarms to get your posts flagged and deleted if you talk negative about Cruz or positive about Trump.

    One defender of truth posted this little gem. Its supposedly from 2013. Tying Cruz to Jeb and other goodies. Love to see it vetted by SD: http://sillysheeple.com/blog-archive/article/-ted-cruz-and-his-wife-are-not-as-clean-as-you-ve-been-led-to-believe

    I see where Sen Cruz has now come out against the TPP in Iowa. That’s cute. While he supported President Obama’s ability to fast track this massive trade massacre on American jobs, he’s now turned around and adopted Mr Trump’s position in opposition to it once the pig left the barn.

    This is one of the oldest legislative tricks in the books, and the young Sen from Texas played his hand masterfully. So if you oppose our foreign trade givaways that have cost our country millions of jobs, don’t be fooled. There is only ONE candidate on your side, and his name is Donald J Trump!

    So let’s review what we now KNOW about Senator Cruz (leaving Breitbart for another day) and try to keep our emotions out of it. The Senator’s wife IS employed by one of the largest investment banks in the world, and one of his major backers IS a hedge fund billionaire. Those are both FACTS.

    However, I also believe he’s generally a good guy in a US Senate that’s largely controlled by OPM (other peoples’ money). But this makes Donald Trump a superior presidential candidate, as his insurgent status makes him better suited to be able to accomplish what needs to be done on trade and immigration for our country.

    As for next year’s general election, Mr Trump also gives us a better chance to win the White House. He already polls far ahead of Sen Cruz among Independent and Democrat voters, without whose support all this would be an exercise in futility anyway.

    Breitbart’s support of Ted Cruz does not surprise me in the least. This is why Breitbart news may someday surpass even Fox. Like their namesake, they are uncompromising in truth and thus have a clear vision of the future and reality.

    It was my initial understanding of Political Correctness and explained in terms I understood in the political masterpiece “Righteous Indignation” by a man who gave no quarter to the enemies of our founding. There are no perfect people, there are some with extraordinary honesty, integrity and, like Ronald Reagan, an unquestioned love of God and Nation. Cruz, fits that to a T. I think Andrew would be very pleased.

  41. As a Latina enterprise owner, globally and an Independent precinct director, I am a Trump supporter and was a Breitbart reader. No longer unfortunately. I’ve heard and seen enough from the media as has the majority. As BB was viewed as the last refuge for Trump supporters it’s time to turn them and the media off, vertically, until the General election. Haven’t received any Cruz material however but it is time. Good luck everyone.
