While Ted Cruz is set to speak at the Republican National Convention tonight, inside sources report that he will not endorse nominee Donald Trump. Instead, the Texas senator is slowly plotting — or so we assume — his next bid at world domination.

Until Cruz can rescue the country next election cycle, his team has developed a plan to keep his vision for conservative America alive and well. The National Memo has received exclusive access to his timeline for the next four years.

 

November 8, 2016

Hillary Clinton wins the presidency. Her first order of business: changing the national motto from “In God We Trust” to “Happy Holidays!”

December 2016

Donald Trump’s business empire collapses in a matter of weeks, leaving him with nothing but his multiple wives and his New York values.

February 14, 2017

This Valentine’s Day, I stand against the increasing sexualization of American culture by avoiding intimacy with my heterosexual spouse!

April 2017

The Clintons have transformed my America into an authoritarian state. Luckily, I am prepared for the worst with my large stockpile of Campbell’s Chunky soup.

July 2017

By now, the night air will be filled with the screams of infants, being mercilessly harvested at your local Planned Parenthood. I recommend drowning out their cries with classic film The Princess Bride.

December 2017

In one of the few highlights of her presidency, Hillary Clinton annexes Canada. I was American all along!

February 2018

Instead of wasting time on pointless theories like climate change, Republican scientists invent a time machine. I use it to go back to 1963 and prove that my father didn’t help assassinate JFK.

June 2018

30 days of intensive training in hand holding with Carly Fiorina. Next time, we’ll be ready.

September 2018

I boldly lead the Senate fight against ISIS by boycotting that halal place that just opened up down the street.

March 2, 2019

Fed up with Washington nonsense, Texas re-declares its independence. It will be an inspiring victory for us, just like The Alamo.

March 3, 2019

Texas rejoins the United States, because it’s a free country and we can do what we want.

September 2019

Without a dry eye in sight, I announce my 2020 presidential bid with the campaign slogan, “See? I Told You So.”

July 2020

Donald Trump knocks on my door with the intention of asking to be my vice president. I pretend to not be home.

November 2020

To nobody’s surprise, I knock the Clintons (both of them!) out of the White House. During my victory speech, I lick a little white booger off my lips, but everyone agrees that it’s pretty endearing.

Praising Biden, Macron Agrees ‘US Is Back’
Although former President Donald Trump and his MAGA ally Steve Bannon have been enthusiastic supporters of Marine Le Pen — the far-right National Rally leader and White nationalist who lost to President Emmanuel Macron in France’s 2017 presidential election — many on America’s right have been quick to bash France over the years, including the country’s economic policies. But liberal economist and New York Times opinion writer Paul Krugman, in his January 14 column, argues that France’s economic policies during the COVID-19 pandemic have been a succ

ess.

“For as long as I can remember,” Krugman writes. “U.S. media coverage of the French economy has been relentlessly negative…. The data never actually supported this negativism. What was really going on, I believe, was that business and economic discourse in the United States is strongly shaped by conservative ideology — and given that ideology, France, with its huge social expenditure, high taxes and extensive economic regulation, should have been a basket case. So, reporting about France seized on every negative development as a sign that the long-awaited disaster was finally arriving.”

AOC Burns Ingraham In Twitter War Over Virus Impact On Minorities

We're nearly three years into one of the worst pandemics to hit the country--and the world--in the last hundred years. Even though vaccines and booster shots are readily available, we're still forced to endure a never-ending sea of ignorance and sickening misinformation from far-right psychopaths. Among those far-right psychopaths is partisan hack and terrible human Laura Ingrahm of Fox News. Much like her equally awful co-worker Tucker Carlson, Ingraham has devoted airtime to constantly spreading lies and misinformation about the vaccine, which is pretty odd when considering that her chief demographic is the vulnerable elderly population.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley recently tested positive for COVID-19 Sunday, and CNN reports that Gen. David Berger, commandant of the Marine Corps, also tested positive. While most sane and decent human beings would want to wish the American general well, Ingraham is a morally depraved monster and chose to delight in the man getting Covid.
