Tripwire Alert – At 6:30pm Today It Became Official – Senator Ted Cruz Will Endorse Jeb Bush…

The Professional Bridge Burner !

Politics is a risky business – a deliberate business – with very specific decisions; and as a direct consequence when you cross a particular line in opposition you point yourself in a very specific direction.   Candidate Cruz has also now affirmed himself as a rigid ideologue.

At 6:30pm today, as a direct result of an official campaign position and not one stemming from a Super-PAC, candidate Ted Cruz officially put himself onto a singular path which leads to either:

A) his own victory, or B) a later endorsement of Jeb Bush/Marco Rubio.

ted cruz 1

When a campaign, and again to repeat this is NOT a pac, attacks a primary opponent in this manner, there is no latter position to fall back upon (change course) to deliver an endorsement of the candidate you are attacking.

This ad does not provide any possibility of candidate Cruz reversing course and endorsing the same candidate being targeted.  Bridge burned, no way to reverse. It never happens.

Senator Ted Cruz has painted himself into a corner.  If this attack doesn’t work, and if Cruz doesn’t win Iowa, he only leaves himself one option.

It is doubtful there is a more apropos example of why Ted Cruz is so ineffective as a Senator; and additionally, this approach solidifies everything Professor Alan Derschowitz outlined as the inherent personal character flaw within his former student, Ted Cruz, as a rigid ideologue.

[…] He made a lasting impression as someone both arrogant and pretentious, as well as someone unwilling to yield or compromise. (link)

This is also exactly the same behavior Senator Ted Cruz exhibited in October through December 2013, and then forward into 2014 when Cruz and Rand Paul aligned with Mitch McConnell….  That alliance ended with the NRSC attacking Mississippi Senate Candidate Chris McDaniel… Cruz claiming he was hoodwinked by the Senate organization he gave $250k and was Vice-Chairman, but he’s the smartest man in the Senate?

Later, during the debate on Fast Track Trade Authority, again Cruz claims he was hoodwinked…. but he’s the smartest man in the Senate? More bridges burned…. leaves Cruz the loneliest, and least effective, man in Washington DC.

GOP primary 2

Just a Reminder, this is an insurgency. – The modern enemy of Wall Street is Main Street vulgarians. The enemy of the RNC/GOPe is not Democrats, it’s Grassroots Conservatives, more vulgarians.

The Republican Party, and the Republican media apparatus, view us as their enemy. We are the enemy they need to protect themselves from:

In 2014, the RNC approved selection rules that govern how each state’s delegates are portioned out from the primaries. Under one of the changes, states holding their primaries between March 1 and March 14 will have their delegates doled out proportionately with election results, a change that will likely stymie a movement candidate.

States that have primaries on or after March 15 will be winner-take-all states.

That’s important because another RNC rule change requires that a candidate must win a majority of delegates in eight or more states before his or her name may be presented for nomination at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

With 18 GOP presidential candidates, for now, it will be that much harder for any candidate to win a majority in any state, let alone eight. (Article July 2015)

GOP-versus-Tea-PartyNow, ask yourself, why would the RNC want to “stymie a movement candidate“? Who exactly does that benefit? Obviously, the “non-movement” candidate, ie “the turtle“.

Isn’t the entire reason for campaigning in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina etc. to make a movement/momentum?

In addition Rule #40 changed in 2014 from previously five needed state wins, to a newer threshold of eight (8):

Officially, it’s Rule 40 in the RNC handbook and it states that any candidate for president “shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states” before their name is presented for nomination at the national convention. (article March 2014)

Again, ask yourself who does this benefit? A candidate can win seven states outright, and still not have their name presented for nomination?

These rules were made/affirmed in 2014 – Who or what exactly was the GOP concerned about blocking in 2016 that would necessitate such rules? When combined with other rule changes you can clearly identify a consolidation of power within the RNC apparatus intentionally constructed to stop the candidate of the GRASSROOTS from achieving victory.

It’s all part of their GOPe Roadmap.

    You know, I dont think subliminally Cruz has decided he will throw his lot with Bush or Rubio later on. I agree he has burned his bridges with Trump, but I think he’s doing it out of desperation. He knows that if he loses Iowa that’s pretty much it for him.

      I’m not convinced re. Rubio, but from what I’ve felt there has been an alliance with Jeb for quite a while now. Jeb hardly attacks him, and Cruz doesn’t much attack Jeb either. There was one flashpoint several months back over Justice Roberts and that was it. Ted worked for GWB of course, and ties probably never have been fully severed, esp. wrt. Texas politics/money.

        Cruz and his wife worked for Jeb’s brother. He’s even using 4 foreign policy advisers that worked for Bush.
        Don’t fall for the show, and that’s what it is for the most part.
        The so-called bitter fights between Kerry and Bush was just show, they went not only to college together but the same secret skull and bones society. The conflict is a show they put on for us to make us believe that they are opposed and that we have a real choice, when they in fact work for the same special interests.
        If you have time, there’s a great movie called “Wag the Dog” with Dustin Hoffman and Robert de Niro. It’s funny as hell.

      As for me, I don’t ascribe ‘genius’ status to R.E.F. ‘Ted’ Cruz. He doesn’t exhibit any particular ‘deep thinking’; he hasn’t shown me any sort of strategic tendencies.

      To me, Cruz is lashing out at the last minute; desperate moves of the cornered animal.

      I’m sure Cruz believes he’s ‘brilliant’ and that he can think rings around everyone else, as Sundance points out, Cruz’s record does not bear this out. I’m sure Cruz & his minions believe this ad will be the ‘silver bullet’ he needed at the last minute.

      But, far from having positioned his chess pieces to ensure Checkmate, he appears to be reacting to Trump’s strategy.

      He did say “are the people in Iowa really that stupid”, but in the sense that ‘stupid’ was not the default condition.

      As an example, say a BB team gets into a funk and makes a bunch of mistakes. The coach calls a time out and says “We know we need to do this and this and you guys are doing that and that.” “Are you guys really that stupid?” “Now c’mon, let’s go do what we need to do.”

      He was talking in that rally about how Carson would never get them to where they want to go, and they needed to step it up to get it right.

      That’s my take on it.

    • R-C says:

      I’m sorry, but…no. The reason Rafael Edward Felito ‘Ted’ Cruz is ineffective is because he doesn’t have the capacity to cooperate with others. He appears to be a stone-cold ideologue first, second, and always. The first thing he did in the Senate was alienate everybody.

      Didn’t you ever wonder why nobody stood by his side during his defining moment, his filibuster? There Cruz stood, ALONE. Not ONE senator standing with him. WHY?

      Because Cruz can’t cooperate; he has no idea how to negotiate, or lead-by-example. Rather, Cruz pontificates–just like Levin.

      It would not matter if Cruz had a democrat or republican president. It’s Cruz’s personality traits and ideological bent that are off-putting, and detrimental to anything he tries to accomplish.

      Add to that Cruz’s now-exposed manipulations and lies. No sale on Cruz, at all. Not with me.

    You know, Ted Cruz really keeps his mother hidden away.
    She is the basis upon which he is saying that he’s eligible to be President, saying that she was born in the US and is a US citizen.

    Why doesn’t Ted allow his mother to be interviewed?
    Cruz’s mother could put the whole issue to rest.
    She could produce the documents that prove she was still a US citizen at the time he was born…if she has them.
    So why has this not happened?

    It wouldn’t be enough, of course, since he wasn’t born here with both parents being citizens at the time of his birth.
    But since that is the thin argument that he makes, to waive off the issue…you’d think that he would have his mother settle that, since that is what he is basing his claim of eligibility on.

        imho, Cruz’s mother is this >< close to giving him away. Maybe she told him she wouldn’t lie for him. Remember the video when Cruz said ”she holds [him] up in prayer constantly” & his mother kind of rolls her eyes.

      When your only claim to eligiblity is a weak claim that only one of your parents is a citizen, you need to prove your claim. Without his mother being verified, Cruz can’t even claim to be a US citizen, much less eligible to be President.

      The fact that the records are sealed and he is not unsealing them should be a huge red flag for anyone who was paying attention in 2008.

    While talkative and outgoing, he struck some classmates as nakedly ambitious.

    As they were entering their second year in law school, Melissa Hart agreed to give Cruz a ride from New York, where Cruz was at the end of the summer, back to Cambridge. She didn’t know him well, but he sought her out after she had been given a prestigious award for first-year students.

    “We hadn’t left Manhattan before he asked my IQ,” Hart said. “When I told him I didn’t know, he asked, ‘Well, what’s your SAT score? That’s closely coordinated with your IQ.’ ”

      Trump is not a risk taker, when he doesn’t need to be. If teaming up with Cruz as VP has any chance at all of being derailed by lawsuits over eligibility, Trump will pass him over in favor of someone without that baggage.

      By all accounts, Cruz is unwilling to do anything to sort out his eligibility, most likely because he can’t.

      what is the term they use? “controlled opposition”. if the gunslinger texas sends to take on Washington d.c. is in effect owned by the very people he is sent to take on. scary. perhaps America has sunk to this. this is why I don’t listen to rush anymore. his liberal v conservative is fake. d.c. has been a uni-party for a while now run by globalist.

    Perfect article. I’m sick of the Trump bashing by supposed conservatives, yet drivel exactly like liberals against Trump.
    Thanks for pointing out the things Mr. Cruz got “hoodwinked” on. Those same ‘conservatives’ tend to leave that stuff out.

    I agree 100% with Sundance Cruz is a Shill for the GOPe.

    We all know Cruz is not who he says he is. We also know he talked about God/Faith and that is the only thing his supporter care about. Cruz will lose and I agree, a Jeb nomination is very likely. Jeb is a loser and many will stay home. Clearly the ‘powers that be’ don’t care who is elected, as long as the status quo is maintained. The far right can’t see that they are helping the fake gods to eliminate them and everything they hold dear.


    • Eskie Mom says:

      I’m not at all sure they do care about God & faith. Not as we know it, anyway. They’ve said some really nasty things about people like Phyllis Schlafly, Robert Jeffress, Jerry Falwell, Jr & someone else whose name escapes me- but it was also really surprising.
      They bring up abortion a lot & sometimes gay marriage, but when one of them posted a list of Cruz’s endorsements, those items that are supposedly so important, were pretty thin.

      Who are these people? Who do they serve/ follow? What is their end goal? Because they never really say. And what they do say solidly contradicts their behavior. Ir’s very weird.

    Personally, I think the rules were changed in 2014 because the GOP Establishment understood the mounting frustration & anger that Republican voters were voicing on the Internet about the absolutely worthless, self-serving, power hungry, DC criminals who allowed Obama to transform America.

    He spent 7 years changing the USA into a sniveling, weak, country while changing America’s values & morals to fit his gay agenda & his RACIST agenda, all the while turning Americans against Christians, whites, our military & the police. He has spent his time promoting Muslims, Illegal Aliens, Communist countries, our enemies, homosexuals & the 45 Communist goals to take over America while bankrupting the USA (a Soros plant).

    I think the GOPe expected a Tea Party revolution. They weren’t counting on Trump who shares our frustration & anger and has the funds to do something about it!

    TRUMP 2016
    because we can’t continue to slide down the Communist Democrat pathway to Hell.

    The problem with Cruz is not that he’s a rigid ideologue, the problem is that he is a globalist.

    As a Trump supporter, the filth you have to endure to comment on any “conservative” sight now is appalling and disgusting, especially from the Cruz crowd. This nation has lost its soul. I can’t face it any more. I’m sticking to my branch and not venturing out any more until sanity, civility and reasoned discourse is restored. This ad is Exhibit A. Out and out fraud from a pure, holy, strict constitutional evangelical.

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is stressing his bona fides as a dealmaker who’d be able to enter the White House and work with congressional Democrats to hammer out agreements.

    “I think I’m going to be able to get along with Pelosi – I’ve always had a good relationship with Nancy Pelosi,” Trump said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” referring to the House minority leader.
    “Reid’s going to be gone. I’ve always had a decent relationship with Reid,” Trump said, referring to Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the Senate minority leader. “I always had a great relationship with Harry Reid.”

    Trump said he thought he’d get along with “just about everybody,” including Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), likely to be the next Senate Democratic leader, who Trump said he was “close to … in many in ways.”

    There is no way I will vote for Trump. I do not trust him. I am sticking with Cruz.

      You do that then, Cruzbot.


    • archer52 says:

      You make good points. Trump is Trump. He can sugar coat his past positions, claim some kind of Epiphany, but he is who he is. Nobody is perfect.

      American Thinker has a take on the Cruz history. Worth reading.

      He’s not perfect. But he’s not bad. My Mensa bright buddy doesn’t like him because he thinks Cruz will make Congress jump through hoops. He is looking for someone who “will not break anything for four years.” He was looking at Jeb, for that singular reason. But I convinced him otherwise.

      There are different perspectives on the definition of “breaking things”. I like Trump in that he’s broken the PC stranglehold on politics. Watch the democrat debate at your own risk- but from what I saw in the highlights it was three old white people claiming “they are down” with any special interest cause presented to them. It…was…embarrassing. HRC claiming she’ll fight big money in politics… as she always has. Seriously, they must issue anti-psychotic drugs to anyone who attends those debates.

      We have to break that mold. It is killing us.

      BTW- supporting Cruz over Trump is not being a cruzbot. It’s being honest. Trump is far from perfect. I’m waiting on his clear plans to deal with issues. We learned from 2008 it is a good idea not to let “hope and change” be the plan.

      Demand details and challenge the narrative.


      • Martin says:

        Then you support ineligible candidate Cruz over Trump then.


      • Rosies Seeing Red says:

        My reason for supporting Trump is because his views on trade, immigration and the economy have been exactly the same for 30 years, and those are the issues that I think are THE most important at this point in time.

        I also want to WIN, and Cruz has absolutely no chance of that. None. He has no crossover appeal and cannot garner the votes of the Reagan Democrats. Without them, we lose.

        Anyone who still supports Cruz is not looking at the internals of the polls and/or refuses to see the truth. I’ve come to the conclusion Cruz supporters would rather lose with their “conservative” martyr than actually win this election.

  26. archer52 says:

    That’s it?? Trump calls anyone who makes criticism of him “a loser” and far worse.

    Cruz hits him on his background and cultural point of view and he’s the devil with no way back?

    First, he may endorse Jeb Bush, he may not. He may not endorse anyone. Trump said he’d support the Republican winner right? He assumed it would be him, but he did say it. If Jeb gets in, will he? If Trump wins will Cruz fall in behind?

    Politics is big boy time, so all this back and forth may be for the fans. Secretly, they actually may like each other for what each other are. Trump prides himself in surrounding himself with people as smart as he is. Cruz would be one of those people.

    Will Cruz take money? Sure, it’s a campaign. It would be refreshing if he took it and told the people no favors are attached.

    But as I posted a while back, which was deleted by the censors, Trump lived with big banks as friends, including one who gave him hundreds of millions vs the forty something thousand shown by Sundance on Cruz’s list.

    Difference being, Trump got his contributions from big banks and business and politicians BEFORE he started his run. Money is fungible. The money he made through his banking connections two years ago is money he can glide on now, so he can say he isn’t taking current! donations.

    I know you know that. It’s okay what he’s doing. Not okay he fools us with it.


    • Rosies Seeing Red says:

      What do you mean a bank “gave” Trump money? Just GAVE it to him? Like a DONATION? Or was it a business loan??

      Politicians literally do TAKE money in the form of donations. That money is lost. Businesses borrow money and then pay it back.


    • Martin says:

      So what exactly is your point?


  27. Cruz is a guy who knows he is not eligible to be President but halfway into his first term as Senator said, to heck with it, and ran anyway.

    He votes against bills then three minutes later votes for them. He takes loans from the banks he’s supposed to be taking to task and lies about it.

    After he is thoroughly thrashed in the upcoming primaries, if he thinks his best interest is to attack lips to bottom on Trump that’s what he’ll do and this commercial won’t stop him. This guy is a snake and you can’t assume that he will limit his behavior based on shame or any sense of honor.


  28. jack-in-the-box says:

    Trump needs to remind people that Cruz is taking money from the establishment and that down the road his delegates could be transferred to Rubio or Bush. A vote for Cruz is a vote for the establishment.


  29. pawatcher says:

    The rest of Trump’s statement “I’m pro choice” should be sent around.
    In 1999 a lot of US were pro choice anti abortion, except if mother in danger supporters. And if a man said he was anti abortion he was told he had no say- it’s the woman’s body to decide.
    All this changed when the abortion mills were unmasked for what they were doing- abortion on demand for convience, birth control, or hate of the father.
    Anyway, pro choice took on a new meaning- pro death, it stopped being about the mother in danger, but kill the baby to take care of the unwanted situation.
    Trump said he was “anti abortion, except in certain situations” that part of his interview is never shown.
    Time to put it out to show Cruz is ad stinks- it’s decietful . Trump has changed his view on abortion like so many of US of a certain age.


    • jello333 says:

      And while he originally said he was okay with “partial birth” abortion, didn’t he come back just a day or so later and say OH WAIT, I DIDN’T REALLY UNDERSTAND HOW THAT WORKED? He said after discussing it with others, and being told what it really was, that he was NOT okay with it. I think that takes a pretty big man to quickly realize he was wrong because he had been “ignorant” about something, and admit it.
