Cruz BS - Women "Journalists" demand firing over phony assault

National Enquirer has a remarkably accurate
track record with sex scandals.

Putting Your Brain in Neutral

  • Cruz and his Establishment backers will go to any lengths to destroy the Trump People's Revolution.
  • Here you see women turning off their brains in an attack on Trump. Maybe, just maybe, they should turn their brains back on and ask Ted who he is banging.

(The Gateway Pundit)  -  WOW! A new low for the #NeverTrump Cruz gang….
A group of self-righteous Ted Cruz supporters disguised as “Conservative Women” released a prepared statement today demanding Donald Trump fire Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski for the media hoax that he assaulted Michelle Fields by walking past her at a Trump event in Jupiter, Florida.
Lewandowski was charged with “battery” over the hoax yesterday by Hillary supporting District Attorney’s office.

FOR THE RECORD —- THESE SAME SELF-RIGHTEOUS WOMEN — Were going to release this letter after the alleged “assault” two weeks ago but held back after video was released that showed nothing happened.
The group of “guilty until proven innocent” are led by Dana Loesch, Katie Pavlich and Meghan McCain.
These so-called “conservatives” do not believe a person is innocent until proven guilty.
They’re going for it! 
They also don’t believe in their own lyin’ eyes that shows NOTHING HAPPENED!

But, hey… It’s what Ted Cruz wants.

Ann Coulter: "It's only Trump"

By Ann Coulter;

The only question for Republicans is: Which candidate can win states that Mitt Romney lost?

Start with the fact that, before any vote is cast on Election Day, the Democrats have already won between 90 and 98 percent of the black vote and 60 to 75 percent of the Hispanic and Asian vote. Unless Republicans run the table on the white vote, they lose.
If there’s still hope, it lies with Trump and only Trump. Donald Trump will do better with black and Hispanic voters than any other Republican. But it’s with white voters that he really opens up the electoral map.
A Republican Party that wasn’t intent on committing suicide would know that. But Stuart Stevens, the guy who lost a winnable presidential election in 2012, says it’s impossible for Republicans to get one more white vote — and the media are trying to convince the GOP that he’s right.
The Rust Belt
So-called "free trade" agreements backed by the GOP have helped gut the American middle class by sending millions of jobs to Mexico and Asia. Free trader Cruz has no chance in Hell of getting votes in these states. Trump could break through with workers who have been screwed over by the Open Borders Elites.

Stevens says Romney tapped out every last white voter and still lost, so he says Republicans are looking for “the Lost Tribes of the Amazon” hoping to win more white votes: “In 1980, Ronald Reagan won 56 percent of white voters and won a landslide victory of 44 states. In 2012, Mitt Romney won 59 percent of whites and lost with 24 states.”
Apparently, no one’s told Stevens about the 50-state Electoral College. The national white vote is irrelevant. Presidential elections are won by winning states. (Only someone who got his ass kicked running an eminently electable candidate might not know this.)
Excluding third parties and breaking it down to a two-man race, Mitt Romney won 88 percent of the white vote in Mississippi, but only 40 percent of the white vote in Massachusetts. What sense does it make to talk about his national percentage of the white vote with disparities like that?
Romney lost the white vote to Obama in five crucial swing states: Maine (42 percent of the white vote), Minnesota (47 percent), New Hampshire (48 percent), Iowa (48 percent) and Wisconsin (49 percent). He only narrowly beat Obama’s white vote in other important swing states — Illinois (51 percent), Colorado (52 percent), Michigan (53 percent), Ohio (54 percent) and Pennsylvania (54 percent).
Increasing the white vote in these states gives Trump any number of paths to victory.
If Trump wins only the same states as Romney, but adds Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois — where Romney’s white vote was below his national average — Trump wins with 280 electoral votes. (Romney wasn’t an ideal candidate in the industrial Midwest.)

‘Pearl of the desert’: RT visits liberated ancient ruins of Palmyra (DRONE FOOTAGE)

Obama Armed ISIS
Russia Liberated Palmyra

  • Note that the controlled Corporate Media Machine is still beating the war drums about the "evil" Syrians and the even more "evil" Russians.
  • But it was the "evil" Syrians and the even more "evil" Russians who just liberated Palmyra from ISIS . . . not the Americans.

(RT News)  -  Days after the Syrian Army recaptured Palmyra from Islamic State militants, RT’s Lizzie Phelan visited the ancient archeological treasure to see if the UNESCO World Heritage Site suffered any irreparable damage after being in the jihadists' hands.

Just getting to Palmyra is a challenge. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) mined the entrances to the world-famous site, which have been painstakingly cleared by the Syrian Army, with Russian assistance.
RT’s Lizzie Phelan was one of the first journalists to set foot in Palmyra since the site was captured by IS militants in May 2015.
“It’s quite incredible to be standing here in the pearl of the desert – the ancient city of Palmyra that for months people around the world feared would be reduced to dust by ISIS,” she said.
Phelan confirmed that large parts of the centuries-old artifacts have been damaged, such as the Temple of Bel and the Arch of Triumph, but some of the historic relics are still standing.

Drone buzzes over ancient Palmyra after
Syrian army retakes city from ISIS

Phelan visited what is left of the 2,000-year-old Temple of Bel, which is considered one of the world’s greatest ancient relics.
The temple was constructed in honor of the Semitic god Bel, and was part of a series of three temples, with the others dedicated to the lunar god Algibol and the sun god Yarhibol. They were built in the year 32 AD and were at the center of Palmyra’s religious life. 
However, parts were destroyed when IS overran the site. With the terrorist group now banished, experts will see if the historic site can be salvaged. Phelan says the task is to see how many large stones that made up the temple remain intact and from there, they will be able to calculate whether it will be possible to reconstruct the archeological treasure. 
“There are craters in the ground all around this ancient site,” Phelan mentioned as she took a walk around Palmyra. “These were caused by landmines laid by ISIS and the soldiers said that most of the fighters they lost were due to these mines, which were often laid between stones to make them blend in,” she added. 
However, thanks to the Syrian Army, which was helped by Russian air support, Palmyra is once again in safe hands and out of the clutches of the IS terrorists, who suffered one of their biggest defeats since capturing large swathes of Syria and Iraq in June 2014.

Trump Factor: 180,000 join GOP in Pennsylvania

What is the Problem?

  • Let's see, The Donald wants to control immigration, cut taxes and bring jobs back to America. . . . and The GOP Elites and their millions of drone brainwashed supporters think this is a bad idea.

(Philly.com)  -  When Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and Donald Trump square off in Pennsylvania's April 26 Republican presidential primary, they will find themselves competing for votes from a rapidly changing base.

At least 128,000 voters statewide have changed their registration since Jan. 1 to join the party. Nearly 85,000 of them had been Democrats; 42,000 were independents or third-party voters. The GOP has also racked up 55,468 more first-time registrants.
The changes reflect what experts are calling an unprecedented number of party switches before a primary election.
That raises questions: Are Democrats and other voters flocking to the GOP in support of one of its three candidates? Or could they be plotting to stuff the ballot boxes for a Republican they think their nominee can beat in November?
Since the start of 2016, nearly 215,000 Pennsylvania voters have switched their party affiliation, which includes the GOP surge, as well as 86,500 who became Democrats.

Open borders Scott Walker endorses Open Borders Cruz

Scott Walker & Ted Cruz
Have Screwed Us Over
Scott Walker and the GOP Elites don't give a 
flying fuck about American citizen workers

By Gary;

I was first alerted to what a traitor Scott Walker is way back in June, 2015.

Not being a member of Congress, Scott Walker could easily have danced around answering questions on the top secret Obamatrade bill that was locked up where no one was allowed to see it.  

Instead the fool Walker came out in favor of the corrupt Obamatrade bill that he did not read. A bill that will gut what is left of industrial America and ship millions more jobs to Asia.

Now Walker puts his stamp of approval on fellow "free trader" Ted Cruz.

Mike Huckabee put it well, “I think there is an obvious question here – if this trade bill is going to create so many jobs and be so good for American workers, why are we setting aside billions of dollars to protect people that are going to lose all of these jobs that we’re supposed to create? I have not heard anyone address that.” 

And you never will get honest answers.

The "free traders" are on the payroll of, or receive campaign money from, multinational corporations who have no interest in American citizen workers. Their only interest is to reduce labor costs to near zero with foreign workers.

Trump is right. We need a level playing field. But non-thinking GOP voters are more interested in Cruz praying to Jesus than protecting their own jobs.

Cruz Must Go Down

  • Hopefully the next couple primaries will put the nails in the coffin of the Great Opportunist Cruz.

(The Hill)  -  GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump holds a 21-point lead over primary rival Ted Cruz, a new national poll finds.
A new NBC News/SurveyMonkey online tracking poll released Tuesday found Trump leading the Texas senator, 48 percent to 27 percent. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who gained 2 points since last week, follows with 18 percent.
When it comes to the possibility of a contested convention, the survey found that a majority of registered Republicans and those who lean Republican, 57 percent, believe that Trump should win the nomination if he wins a plurality of delegates, even if he fails to capture a majority of delegates.
The survey also shows 52 percent of those same voters are happy with a general election match-up between Trump and Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, while 30 percent would consider a third party candidate.
The poll was conducted online March 21–27 and surveyed 6,521 adults, including 5,741 who say they’re registered voters.

What the Hell is wrong with Republicans?

Question: "Are Republicans Sheeple?"
Rank and file GOP voters obey the commands of their corrupt Wall Street funded Open Borders Overlords to oppose Trump
and destroy the American Middle Class. 

By Gary;

The upcoming primary in Wisconsin proves that the average "Conservative" GOP voter is a non-thinking Sheeple.

The polls show Trump at 35% in the state. That means that even at this late date some two-thirds of Republican voters support open borders free trade candidates who want to export millions more middle class jobs to Asia and Mexico.

As crazy as it appears, the "Conservative" GOP Sheeple have no interest in protecting their own jobs.

  • The "Conservative" National Review has viciously attacked Trump while declaring that the white working class is “immoral” and deserves to die out.
  • Then you have the great "Conservative" Ted Cruz wanting to import millions of new workers to lower wages and compete directly with American citizens for jobs. Also, don't forget that in a act of "love" Cruz was down at the border with Glenn Beck handing out Teddy Bears to illegal alien children.
  • You have self-described "Conservative" Governor Kasich who, when he was in Congress, voted to ship jobs to Mexico when he supported NAFTA.

But the mindless GOP Sheeple keep supporting these "Conservatives" who want more and more of the same policies that are turning the U.S. into a third world nation.

I am not sure The Donald can reach minds that are so closed.

Giant Sucking Sound - Ross Perot
In the 1992 election Ross Perot warned us that Republicans and Democrats were joining arm-in-arm to betray American workers and export middle class jobs to Mexico. But the American Sheeple worship any corrupt fool with the magic "D" or "R" after their names.
Everything that Perot warned us about has come true.

The GOP Abandoned the People
In the olden days the Republican Party stood for a tariff to protect the jobs of American citizens from foreign goods made in near slave labor conditions. The GOP also supported gold as legal tender and balanced Federal budgets.
Well, those day are long gone.  On the orders of Wall Street the GOP now works to abolish as many American jobs as possible and send them to Asia and Mexico. But that is not enough, the open borders GOP wants to lower the wages of those jobs that are left by importing an endless stream of new legal and illegal workers.

The "Conservative" GOP abandoned gold backed money long ago. Today the "Conservative" Republican Party worships ringing up trillions in new debt to buy votes and the endless printing of paper money.

Roger Stone Bombshell About Cruz Sex Scandal: If It's Not All True, "Sue Me Immediately"

Why Won't Ted Cruz Sue?
A jury awarded Hulk Hogan $140 million.  

So if the National Enquirer is is lying about Cruz having affairs then why does Ted not sue?

(Real Clear Politics)  -  Trump confidant Roger Stone spoke with Frank Morano on AM970 The Answer in New Jersey/New York on Sunday morning about allegations that he planted the story in this week's National Enquirer accusing Ted Cruz of multiple extra-marital affairs. 

"He’s a lawyer himself," he said, "so why won’t he sue? It won’t cost him anything. To be absolutely clear — Cruz won’t sue because the allegations are largely true."


-- "The Rubio campaign elected not to use this information, but they kept it as a hedge about some of the allegations about Rubio's personal life."

-- "Cruz holds himself out as a moral exemplar, and I think it is the hypocrisy that once again is problematic here. Where's his lawsuit? Where's his $100 million lawsuit against the National Enquirer..."

-- "This is very much like the John Edwards case, when the Washington Post, who is chasing this story, or the AP, who is chasing the story. The dirty little secret here is this isn't just the National Enquirer, this is major media organizations. Every major media organization in the country is pursuing this story. And they are well familiar with the names."

-- "And you have to wonder whether these women, one of whom worked for the Carly Fiorina campaign and then shortly thereafter Ted Cruz pays Carly half a million dollars. Ted despises Carly, and Carly despises Ted. What is the $500,000 for? Can you say hush money?"

The GOP plan to steal Trump's nomination with Trojan Horse delegates

The Oligarchs Screw The People

  • In the totally fucked up corrupt American election system we see anti-Trump GOP Oligarchs behind the scenes selecting the delegates who are supposed to be voting for Trump.
  • Really, in what fucked up world was that bullshit adopted? The point being the entire election system is designed to keep the dirty peasant voters from having any real power in elections. It's all a private club and we are not invited.

(The Stone Zone)  -  Hard-boiled pols know the nomination will be decided not on the first ballot but in a series of procedural votes by the entire convention to adopt the rules of the convention as recommended by the Rules committee and the seating of the delegates as recommended by the Credentials Committee. Those key committees are made up by two members from each state. The bosses have been quietly planting establishment regulars in these spots.

Party insiders want to make sure they have a working majority on the floor for the passage of their "license to steal". Republican State Chairs are planting Trojan Horse delegates into slots won by Trump on the first ballot to vote with them on procedural votes to pass the Rules and Credentials Reports that will seal the Big Steal.

This is going on in Texas, New York , Michigan, Connecticut and North Dakota and other states.

Your Vote Has No Meaning
To the corrupt Open Borders Elites we are all
just puppets to be manipulated.

Though these "Trump" delegates will be bound by national and state rules to support Trump through the first ballot at the convention they are free to vote against Trump's interests on the adoption of Rules and the seating of delegates .It's entirely plausible that a state could seat delegates pledged to support Donald Trump who have open affiliations with other candidates. In California Cruz and Paulistas are signing up online via CA's GOP website as Trump delegates.

The RNC's rules committee tightened the rules governing the allocation of pledged delegates: The proportion of pledged delegates actually sent to the convention must align with the proportion actually won by a candidate in states that don't give their winners all of their delegates.Republican operatives are secretly working to stack the delegate selection process. They want as many reliable stooges as possible to identify as pledged "Trump" delegates. That way, those men and women can vote to break Trump's back with hostile rules and by unseating Trump delegates if necessary.

The power-brokers short term game is clear; stall Trump just short of the magic number of delegates needed to be nominated on the first ballot with the knowledge that many delegates bound on the first ballot by Trump primary and caucus victories are ringers who would be unbound on a second ballot.

Much in the way the RNC stacked the galleries with anti-Trump partisans in the last two debates, anti-Trump quislings are be planted in various delegations that will be free to betray Trump on procedural matters and subsequent ballots. Kidnapping is real possibility .What happens if a pledged delegate decides not to show up for the first ballot? The alternate replacing them may not be for Trump.

Get ready for Armageddon.

Reagan delegate manager hired by Trump

"Corruptus in Extremis"

  • The corrupt Open Borders team of Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham is working overtime to quietly steal delegates in Louisiana and other states that Trump won in a public vote.
  • Trump has hired an experienced delegate manager from the Reagan campaign to prevent the GOP Elites from stealing the election.

(New York Times)  -  Donald J. Trump, girding for a long battle over presidential delegates and a potential floor fight at the Cleveland convention, has enlisted the veteran Republican strategist Paul J. Manafort to lead his delegate-corralling efforts, according to people briefed on Mr. Trump’s plans.

Mr. Trump confirmed the hire in a brief telephone interview. “Yes,” he said, “it is true.”

Mr. Manafort, 66, is among the few political hands in either party with direct experience managing nomination fights: As a young Republican operative, he helped manage the 1976 convention floor for Gerald Ford in his showdown with Ronald Reagan, the last time Republicans entered a convention with no candidate having clinched the nomination.

He performed a similar function for Mr. Reagan in 1980, and played leading roles in the 1988 and 1996 conventions, for George Bush and Bob Dole.

Mr. Manafort has drawn attention in recent years chiefly for his work as an international political consultant, most notably as a senior adviser to former President Viktor F. Yanukovych of Ukraine, who was driven from power in 2014.

The hiring is a sign that Mr. Trump is intensifying his focus on delegate wrangling as his opponents mount a tenacious effort to deny him the 1,237 delegates he would need to secure the Republican nomination. Under those circumstances, Mr. Trump’s opponents hope they can wrest that prize from him in a contested convention.

Bringing Mr. Manafort on board may shore up Mr. Trump’s operation in an area where his opponents currently see him as vulnerable. In an alarming tactical setback for Mr. Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported last week that he might harvest fewer delegates from his primary win in Louisiana than Senator Ted Cruz, whose campaign has aggressively picked off delegates who are uncommitted or apportioned to candidates no longer in the race.

Too many missteps of that kind could force Mr. Trump unnecessarily into a Cleveland floor fight.

$6,000 Fed Study of ‘History of French Lesbian Activism’

By Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet, a French painter who led the
Realist movement in 19th-century French painting.

I'm Feeling Artsy and Craftsy

  • As long as the government is going to finance Lesbian Studies I figured I would throw in some lesbian oil paintings.  These paintings are presented purely for educational purposes.

(Washington Free Beacon)  -  The National Endowment for the Humanities released its latest round of projects, which includes studies of the “history of French lesbian activism,” and $20,000 for a new college course on “questions about neighborliness.”
The projects are part of $21.1 million in grants announced this week for the federal agency’s “Common Good” initiative.
Tamara Chaplin, an associate professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, received a $6,000 summer stipend for her project “Postwar French Media, and the Struggle for Gay Rights.”
The project is described as a “book-length study of the history of French lesbian activism since World War II.”
Summer On The Beach (oil on canvas) By Paul Fischer

Chaplin’s areas of study include contemporary France, the histories of gender and sexuality, feminist and critical theory, and queer studies. She previously contributed to the 2011 book Orgasm without Limits: May ’68 and the History of Sex Education in Modern France.
Chaplin also previously wrote a journal article on “Cyberqueer History and Lesbian Identity,” that explored how lesbians came out on the Minitel, a pre-Internet online service in France.
Chaplin described the online service as a “utopian” idea that allowed lesbians to come out online.
“The Minitel made possible new forms of lesbian identity untethered to specific locations, organizations, embodiment, or proximity,” Chaplin wrote. “It also made possible unique ways of being ‘out of the closet’ in a virtual space that was at once private (experienced in the intimacy of home or office) and public (accessible to others and premised on representation and communication).”
“[T]he Minitel not only put a self-identified group of lesbian individuals into contact but also helped to construct a very specific incarnation of the social category—‘lesbian’—that it was deployed to support,” she wrote. “In so doing, it contributed to the emergence of an ‘imagined community’ characterized not by geographic proximity but by a level of social cohesion born of personal intimacy, common understanding, shared political vision, and mutual experiences of social exclusion.
“Utopian in conceptualization, in this particular iteration it was ultimately unsuccessful in practice,” Chaplin concluded.
George Hare, painted an erotic, romanticized vision of Perpetua and
Felicity around 1890. His painting “The Victory of Faith” shows
the women as an inter-racial couple sleeping together nude on a prison floor.

The list of new National Endowment for the Humanities projects also includes funding for several new college courses, including $19,783 for the University of California, Irvine for a class to “explore the question of when war should end.”
Valparaiso University in Indiana received $20,000 to create a course on “questions about neighborliness.”
The University of Kansas received $19,999 for a college class on the “ethical boundaries of community,” while Boston College received $20,000 for a six-week seminar on “the meaning of work and leisure.”
The University of Rochester also received $19,341 for an undergraduate seminar on “what it means to die.”
Other grants included $6,000 to the University of South Florida for a cultural analysis of “conflict graffiti in Detroit and cities in the Middle East.”
Another $6,000 went to a professor at California State University for a book on “feminist activism and peace negotiations at the end of World War I.”
The agency called the latest round of projects “exceptional.”

Trump ahead in California GOP primary

The Golden State Could Be 
Solid Gold For Trump

(Politico)  -  Donald Trump leads the Republican field in California more than two months before the state’s primary, according to a new statewide poll of Republicans.

Trump leads with 37 percent among registered Republicans in California, according to a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll released Sunday. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz follows with 30 percent, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich trails with 12 percent.

Trump leads his opponents in most areas of the state. Cruz tends to do well with conservative voters in the Central Valley, according to the poll.

The poll was conducted by phone March 16-23. It has a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points for the full sample and 5.5 points for the Republican primary sample. The poll included 1,503 registered voters in California, 391 of whom are registered Republicans.

Delegate-rich California votes June 7 along with Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota; it is the last day of the Republican primary calendar.

Creeping Sharia - Men and women now segregated in railway cars

The Rotten Fruits of Open Borders

  • And the liar politicians on both the Right and the Left keep pushing endless immigration.

(Breitbart London)  -  A central German regional railway is launching a special women and children only area for their trains, a move which has triggered controversy.

The announcement from the central German Regiobahn line came earlier this week, with the network stating the new compartment on their Leipzig and Chemnitz would admit women and young children only.
To ensure maximum peace for those choosing to travel in that compartment not only would it be sandwiched between the service’s two quiet coaches, but it would also be next to the on-board office of the “customer service representative. Traditionally known as a train guard or ticket inspector, the company said “the local proximity to the customer service representative is chosen deliberately”.
Yet despite the recent mass sex-attacks in Germany, and the official advice to young women that the best thing to do is to keep groping migrant men “at arms length” to prevent rape, the railway denies the segregated trains has anything to do with sexual harassment.
This denial has caused lively debate and controversy on German social media, reports Süddeutsche Zeitung.

'Targets were Christians’: Taliban attack that killed over 65

The Religion of Peace™

65 Dead, 280 Injured

(RT News)  -  Taliban faction Jamaat-ul-Ahrar has claimed responsibility for Sunday’s suicide blast outside a public park in Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore that killed at least 65 people and injured more than 280. Most of the injured are women and children.
The targets were Christians,” Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for the faction, said, threatening that more attacks in the region would follow.
We want to send this message to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that we have entered Lahore. He can do what he wants but he won’t be able to stop us. Our suicide bombers will continue these attacks.

Salman Rafique, a health adviser for Punjab’s provincial government, put the death toll at over 60 people.
There are more than 280 injured people,” Rafique said. “Many are now being treated, and we fear that the death toll may climb considerably.
Police say the blast had been carried out by a suicide bomber.
Most of the dead and injured are women and children, Mustansar Feroz, superintendent of police for the area told Reuters.
The explosion happened outside Gulshan Iqbal Park, near the park’s parking lot, just outside the exit gate and a few meters away from children's swings.
The park was crowded because Christians are celebrating Easter holiday and many families were leaving the park when the blast occurred, according to senior police officer Haider Ashraf. He also said the death toll could still rise as many of the wounded were in critical condition.
