Ted Cruz Jeered, Wife Escorted Out At Raucous Republican Convention

By Ginger Gibson and Steve Holland

CLEVELAND (Reuters) – U.S. Senator Ted Cruz refused to endorse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump at the party’s convention on Wednesday, sparking an eruption of angry jeers from Trump supporters and shattering the facade of party unity that has been carefully built up in Cleveland this week.

Anti-Trump Republican delegate Ken Cuccinelli told Reuters he escorted Cruz‘s wife, Heidi, off the floor of the Republican National Convention out of concern for her safety.

Cruz, who came in a distant second behind Trump in the race for the nomination, stopped short of endorsing Trump after a bitter and personal campaign and mentioned him only once, drawing boos and repeated chants of “We want Trump.”

Cuccinelli said: “During the course of the speech, more and more people were coming down closer and closer to Heidi and (Ted Cruz‘s father) Rafael. … When the speech ended, there was an ugly crowd behind us. … She was trying to leave.”

A witness said one person shouted: “Goldman Sachs” at Heidi Cruz in reference to her employment at the investment bank.

Cruz began his speech saying: “I want to congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination last night.”

Later in the speech, he urged: “Please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”

Trump, who will represent the party in the Nov. 8 election against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, made his entrance to the convention hall near the end of Cruz‘s speech, applauding Cruz‘s remarks but, by his appearance, distracting the crowd from his former rival.

EXCHANGE OF INSULTS

During the campaign for the party’s nomination, Trump insulted Cruz‘s wife’s looks and suggested the Texan’s father was with John F. Kennedy’s assassin just before the president was shot in Dallas in 1963.

Cruz, who as a Tea Party conservative in the U.S. Senate spearheaded tactics that led to a government shutdown over the federal budget, called the New York real estate developer a “serial philanderer” and a “narcissist” during the campaign.

A Cruz adviser who asked to remain anonymous said Cruz had anticipated a backlash from the crowd if he did not endorse Trump.

“We knew people were going to be mad if he didn’t say the words, but he congratulated him and called for unity behind common values. He expected people to not be thrilled about this” the adviser said.

Trump won the nomination on Tuesday with 1,725 delegates, followed by Cruz with 475 delegates.

In a speech a few moments after Cruz finished, former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich veered from his prepared text to defend Cruz.

“I think you misunderstood one paragraph that Ted Cruz, who is a superb orator, said. And I just want to point it out to you. Ted Cruz said you can vote your conscience for anyone who will uphold the Constitution. In this election, there is only one candidate who will uphold the Constitution,” Gingrich said.

“To paraphrase Ted Cruz, if you want to protect the Constitution of the United States, the only possible candidate this fall is the Trump-Pence Republican ticket,” Gingrich said.

Another Trump rival vanquished in the race for the party nomination, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, spoke by video and praised Trump for his commitments to safeguarding national security, lowering taxes and appointing conservative Supreme Court justices.

“The time for fighting each other is over. It’s time to fight for a new direction for America. It’s time to win in November,” Rubio said.

The drama did not prevent Trump’s vice presidential running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, from receiving a raucous welcome inside the convention hall. Accepting the convention’s nomination, Pence spoke of Trump as a friend of the working class who has persevered in the business world. “He’s a doer in a game usually reserved for talkers,” Pence said.

    Great theater signifying nothing. Cruz does not like Trump and Trump does not like Cruz. No surprise except who in the campaign believed having Cruz on the stage was a good idea?

    In the mythical world of Trumpetism, you either offer unconditional and absolute obedience – and lots of adulation – to the Messiah, or you face the ire of the members of his cult, not to mention the Savior himself.
    Sen. Cruz may not know it yet, but his political career as a staunch conservative has come to a screeching halt. The same goes for Jeb Bush, Kasich, Romney, and every single conservative who decided not to tow the line for the biggest political fraud in U.S. history.

      Even scarier is in the REAL world of Barack Obama where if you don’t offer unconditional and absolute obedience and lots of adulation to the messiah, you face the ire of Lois Lerner and the IRS who were weaponized under their lord and savior, Obama, to attack his conservative opponents and their organizations through illegal targeting and harrassment.

          …and the implicit insistence on letting far right groups get away with false information in their affidavits to qualify for tax exempt status.
          Don’t forget that these are the same people who a few weeks ago demonized Democrats for proposing to ban the sale of assault rifles to people on the FBI watch list, and are now impressed by Trump’s promise to talk to the NRA about banning the sale of assault rifles to people on the FBI watch list, if he is elected President. Hypocrisy on steroids, and subservience to the NRA by the self anointed party of law and order.

The party whose focus on deregulation paved the way for the misdeeds of Bernie Maddoff, ENRON, Lehman Brothers, and the near collapse of the U.S. economy?
        Yes, I can imagine how disgusting it must be for you, and others like you, to see the IRS auditing and investigating far right organizations that cheated in their applications for tax exempt status. You might as well get used to it, fraud is not allowed by Democratic administrations, and there are likely to be many more for many years to come.

      or do without anything, work for anything, that wasn’t mostly handed to him on a silver platter. Identifies with the working class, cares about the work-a- day, American family, or will fight for their interests as President, they can do that.

One might logically conclude from this, that swearing allegiance to Trump is exactly the same as swearing allegiance to the Constitution! Well you say, Republicans would never do that.

BC took it to Ottawa and refused to allow it calling it “the worst environmental disaster waiting to happen,” as was published in the Calgary Sun and National Post.

          Then, Cruz sidled up to Klein to represent Canada and be the go between for Texas Big Oil who wanted to ram a 2500 mile long pipeline from Hardisty AB to Galveston, taking US land in 5 states.

          Don’t you dare try to present Cruz as an honest buy when half of his province knew he was as much into those legal hookers in Calgary as Gingrich was into bedding as many women as he could all while HE was married.

            I can tell you that in the 33 years I was a Republican woman, there were always less than 3% of women at any given time at a GOP meeting.

            When you look at what the GOP really wants, it is to allow employers to not pay workers for their work. All while employers jack prices of goods and services they then expect us to pay for with money that drops out of heaven.

            The GOP Big Business idea is to allow Big Business to BE the government. With us as their employees earning all the profit without any sharing.

            The idea that employers must SHARE the profits is something they despise with every fiber of their pathetic being. They don’t mind us working our asses off to make those profits. Just don’t expect a paycheck to decrease those profits.

            I think the Tea Party is a contributing factor, but I’d say it’s the GOP’s desire to be in power as their number one goal above anything else, that is their biggest issue. Pandering to the evangelicals or Tea Party or 1% or who ever, has created a situation where they have no core principles or values. Sure they will say smaller government, and do what W did to increase it. Or they will say cut taxes and let the deficits balloon. It’s all BS, to drive votes.

            Actually, all of the GOP today is andocratic. When you hear how many times they all say they want Hillary in prison…and are deadly serious about it, you have to wonder if this is some veiled attempt at sidelining the entire election.

            They may be getting behind Trump in public, but what I know of Republicans in my 33 years in that party is “What is see, is NOT what you get.” Ever. That back room GOP is dark and a real and present danger to our children’s futures.

            All Ryan ever says is that he and his attack dogs all the same middle ages, want to get rid of SS. Sure..they know if they do that, the pile of SS money that is amassing ends up in their investment accounts. Ryan is already under suspicion for selling his stock investments based on insider information or so it was stated in the WSJ.

          Cruz cannot resist being in the spotlight and this is just another part of his plan to remain relevant. So don’t look at it as he was boo’d, think about his real plan. And that’s to twist this later when Trump fails, like everyone knows he will, then Cruz can point and say look I remained true, might say he’s “being on the come” in craps. Hehe, I just made that up, I have no idea how to actually play craps!

The wages haven’t been increased, and the republicans will make sure it doesn’t happen. How have the democrats let YOU personally down?

        That’s not the reasons why I’m voting for a republican this time, we must stop the overly bleeding heart dems. from pushing the L.G.B.T. agenda, stop illegal immigration, stop a possible criminal Hilary Clinton, but I know republicans will do things I hate but I have to prioritize issues.

          Gee, I wonder if you’d feel the same way if you had a child that came to you and told you they were gay or transgender. I imagine you’d just throw them out of the house, wouldn’t you? So, until you have these problems, you shouldn’t be talking about them! As for so-called “illegal” immigration, maybe Trump needs to explain why he imported so many Polish workers to build his buildings in New York despite the fact that there were plenty of people in the U.S. that would have been glad to have the job…..but, he was able to pay them less (when he actually paid them), so I guess that was okay. As for Hillary being a “criminal,” nothing to date has been proven…..but maybe we need to talk about the 1350 lawsuits that have been filed or are still pending for Trump, including the one about Trump U? How quickly the GOP forgets when their OWN people are criminals!!!

            I don’t hate gay & transgender people I hate the condition like I hate cancer, I wouldn’t through out my kid but I would be like Daaaaammmm!OH Man! it would be like my kid had a disease,we don’t abandon people for that but I don’t have that problem I desperately want a cause & cure for there condition. I have a right to talk about them that’s why I’m here.
            Donald Trump isn’t perfect but considering the massive illegal problem we have I think he will do a better job solving it then a overly bleeding heart liberal like Obama-& Hillary, besides Trump has the other republicans he has to work with.
            I said possible criminal, I have said in past comments that nothing proven, reminding people Americans are innocent until proven guilty, but things look bad, with the Bengazi committee finding her lying, multiple disappearances & death’s of people connected to her & other activities.

            I’m not fan of the republicans in fact I’ve never voted for one but trumps not an establishment guy I’m very happy that the others lost. it would be harder to get away with unscrupulous practice like you mentioned with the whole country watching, about ignoring criminal activity by ones own party you could say the same for democrats, It’s always a choice between the lesser of two evils.

            First of all, you are totally confused. Being gay or transgender is NOT a “condition” as you call it. It’s not something that can be cured by a pill or a procedure. Maybe if you actually understood what it means to be gay or transgendered, you’d be able to understand the facts. As it stands, you tend to believe what the GOP has brainwashed you to believe and you are too hard headed to believe anything else.
            Also, the Benghazi committee did NOT find that Hillary lied in any way, shape, or form. After God knows how many investigations, they couldn’t pin any of the problems on Hillary. As for “multiple disappearances and death’s of people connected to her,” not sure what you mean by that since none of this has ever been proven to be true.
            And, if you want to talk about being unscrupulous, you may want to take a closer look at your buddy, Trump. He has over 1300 lawsuits pending against him for non-payment of his contractors, for fraud, and for a ton of other illegal actions. He’s lost several, settled in most (so he wasn’t found guilty), and is still waiting on several other lawsuits. If you think that he’s not unscrupulous, then you need to have your head examined (and NOT by Ben Carson, please)!!!

            Can you show me pruff that it’s not? even if you did doctors in the future mite find out they were wrong, we can’t cure much of anything now can we? but there’s always some day.
            I understand they feel the way they do but that doesn’t mean it’s not a condition, I think they feel just as normal as a straight person except, I think the chemicals in the brain that create the feeling of love & sexual attraction are some how screwed up I also think you nor anyone can really know for sure any of this because this is brain science which we are hardly masters of.
            I’m not a republican & they haven’t brainwashed me, this is my own uneducated options, you don’t know me so you have no idea if I’m hard headed or not, are you some kind of expert in homosexuality/ Doctor? maybe your wrong.
            About Hillary I read they said she lied repeatedly.
            The meaning of disappearances &death’s are self explanatory is what I read was accruing to people she knows worked with, no nothing has been proven & I’m not saying she’s guilty but we know that’s not impossible especially with someone with power & connections.

So when the Constitution says no cruel and unusual punishment and Scalia says well it’s not punishment so torture is ok, you’re ok with that, perfectly fine, YAY Constitution. But a law requiring the purchase of health insurance that’s Un-Constitutional, right? You’re a moron and there’s no real point in debating or arguing with you because as an ignorant you gave up ration and reason a long time ago. Plus, I’m sure you’re too dumb to know this but studies have proven that people especially ignorant Cons when confronted with the facts that their beliefs are false only become more committed to their stupidity, the backfire effect. Therefore pointing out facts to Cons is a pointless and futile exercise and instead reminding them that they are lowlife ignorant scum is the correct approach to people lacking a conscience or a brain.

            Yes a law requiring everyone to purchase health care is unconstitutional The only reason the obamacare tax is legal is because it is a tax. It is administered by the IRS. Have you seen how many of the insurance companies are going out of the obamacare tax business? I doubt if anyone as ignorant as you knows that. What studies are you making up? Probably reading from the liberal how to lie handbook. Do you think chopping off ones head is cruel and unusual punishment, or do you agree with ISIS?

            In any event, when Trump wins, the ACA will get no funding. Already the insurance premiums (and costs) are rising faster than when the ACA was implemented. The subsidies are sucking the weakest recovery in history dry.

But, if Trump wins (which isn’t likely), 13M people may end up losing their insurance coverage. Even with the rising costs, which are due to inflation, there are still millions who are happy to have insurance that they couldn’t get before! There will be a great outcry should Trump try to take away people’s insurance coverage! It’s also interesting, if you ever do your research, that the government has spent LESS money on subsidies than it did paying for ER visits by people without insurance with our hard-earned taxpayer money. As for being a “racists and a bigot,” how little you know about me! Fortunately, no one really listens to your BS, so I’m not concerned!

On the other side, over 4 million lost their insurance when they lost their full-time jobs and are not working two part-time jobs, without insurance because of the ACA.

          The entire premise of the GOP today is to take their country back…so far back we all work for no pay, no benefits and only to support rich porkers.

          If anyone had had his guns taken away by President Obama, you can be absolutely certain that that person would have been speaking at the RNC. There would have been demonstrations by people who had their guns taken away by President Obama outside the convention, and those demonstrations would have been at least mentioned by network correspondents. Were there any such speeches, demonstrations, or mentions? I didn’t think so. Really, when Republicans talk about defending the Constitution, they mean the Second Amendment. For them, the Constitution starts and ends with the Second Amendment.

            It’s all about how much money McConnell, Boehner when he was there, Ryan and the others can bilk the NRA for. McConnell is a millionaire from NRA money. McConnell tells the NRA ” Don’t know what we would do without you” as he fills his coffers with their money. Despicable human being that he is.

            IT’s interesting, I just read in the newspaper (a couple of them for that matter) about all the big parties that were being thrown in Cleveland by the lobbyists and how many of our Congressmen and women were in attendance. Apparently, these lobbyists wanted to cement their deals for future favors ahead of time just in case Trump is elected (which isn’t going to happen, but they can always hope). The amount of money spent by these lobbyists for these big shindigs was out of control!! It was enough to run a third-world country and then some!!! So, if Trump says he isn’t taking corporate money, he and his gang of idiots are lying like crazy! The corporations are doing their usual “buying and selling” of our politicians and making sure that their so-called “favors” will be taken care of.

            You’re wrong on so many fronts. You obviously have little understanding of what’s been going on. Democrats have passed legislation to restrict and make it difficult for ordinary folks to purchase weapons and have gone so far as to tell you where you can’t take you self-defense weapon. Hence, they ARE taking guns away from people.
            The Democrats skirt the constitution and legislate from the bench or office. The real reason Trump has captured the hearts of so many independents is because of all the times the Democrats, without following the constitution, just did what they wanted.

Both states have higher than average gun crimes, so we already know that limiting gun ownership doesn’t work, but the real issue is how did these states get their gun control laws? Oh, Democrats passed the legislation? So tell me again how Democrats are not “taking guns away from citizens” – please! Spoiler alert – the Democrats ARE taking away gun ownership rights, just as has been claimed. Guess that makes you the “Dumbo”!

You continue to insist that Fryer’s study was definitive yet you cannot prove it. Also death rates are rated by the hundred thousands, not thousand so a city with a population in the millions will have more deaths than small towns, but the rate per 1000,000 is lower. See: http://kff.org/other/state-indicator/death-rate-per-100000/. That is simple math.
            Now to your big point about unsafe big northern cities/states. See: http://kff.org/other/state-indicator/firearms-death-rate-per-100000/.

            OK YOU DUMMY, I acknowledged that absolute numbers (that phrase will keep you searching for days) will be higher, but when you go to rate per thousand, then cities with more population are adjusted.

You and the dumber members start to challenge PROVEN sources and claim the sources are lying. Do you realize how dumb that makes you look? So the remainder of your doubting crowd accept defeat (once again) but not you. You just keep plucking along and all you have as proof is your lies. I’m still waiting for ANYONE from your crowd to produce JUST one source that says that police shoot and kill blacks at a higher rate. The reason you can’t is because there are no such sources. Fryer did his study because ALL he could find were 3 other studies that produced the same result as his. He couldn’t believe it, but the truth is the truth. Check out Heather Mac Donald’s book “The War On Cops”. It clearly shows the bias towards whites getting shot more than blacks.

            They do not have higher rates. Because their populations are so much higher, their totals are higher. Percentage wise the states without restrictions have higher rates because of their lower populations.

            Again, you do not know the facts. As a person who has lived in California most of my life, I can tell you that you are absolutely wrong about the crime rate in California. Since our governor enacted reasonable gun laws, our murder rate has decreased significantly. They don’t take guns away from Californians, but they DO ask for proper background checks both when purchasing from registered gun shops AND when purchasing from so-called “tent” sales. This has not stopped anyone from legally owning a weapon. Additionally, we do not have an “open carry” law, which most of the people, Democrat AND Republican, in California voted not to have. Maybe you need to check your facts or talk to a few people who live here in California and really know the truth before you start spouting the GOP mantra!

(Go ahead and tell me that I’m a Canadian and don’t have a say in what happens in the USA–but I am a US citizen and will be voting in November.) Here’s some logic for you. First, you still haven’t told me how anyone’s guns have actually been taken away, only that some common sense restrictions may have been placed on where they can be transported or on their purchase. That doesn’t sound like taking weapons away from anyone. Second, if, as you say, Democrats have passed laws restricting gun ownership, why haven’t Republicans in Congress repealed those laws? Oh, maybe you’ll say that they have tried, but President Obama vetoed their bills. (I don’t recall that.) Well, if that is actually the case, which I doubt, that’s just the way things work. It’s called the Constitution. But you’ve kind of supported my assertion by addressing only the Second Amendment issue. And yes, Cruz is finished, fortunately.

            Restricting the ability for the average citizen to posses a fire arm IS TAKING their gun rights away. The states and cities that have the strongest laws about owing guns have the highest rate of shooting. Thus, the premise that stricter laws work, has been shot down. Just look at Europe, who have zero allowance for guns. The number of recent shootings there should tell you that tough gun laws DON’T work. Of course the press or media never publishes stories about the average citizen who draws their gun when an attack occurs and takes down the would be terrorist. There are many of these such stories and even videos showing the average citizen chasing off the terrorist.

I have difficulty imagining how stupid a human being must be not to be able to see through Cruz and the other lying Cons, it’s unbelievable. Now, of course, the always predictable response I will get from the ignorant Cons is some false equivalent about HRC and “sheeple” stuff, it’s their standard stupidity. Because in the Con sick mind they can’t imagine that I and other progressives might not agree with the democrats and Hillary on many issues and are perfectly willing to both point out and critique those positions. But for the ignorant moron Cons, they’re only capable of “with us or against us,” it’s all their simple minds can grasp, black or white, gray is impossible for them. Yet another reason they’re ignorant Cons, damaged and sad.

I live surrounded by ignorant Cons everywhere, every day, in my own family but I still know ignorant Conism is a sickness that only affects a relatively small percentage of Americans, certainly not half. Although it is a terrible disease and very contagious between stupid people. I guess first we had STD’s sexually transmitted diseases, and now we have the Con sickness and ITD, an ignorance transmitted disease.

You do know that’s the defense Fux took when sued for defamation of character? Anyway, presenting this defense in a Florida court they stated their reporting did not have to live up to journalistic standards but more of the supermarket rags sold at the checkout counters for entertainment value. No reporting integrity responsibility but many rag head republicans believe they’re hearing news with integrity demanded of NBC, CNN, ABC and other news outlets.

I feel having shows like Hannity, O’Reilly, and others like that are for entertainment not news. FOX in the morning is news though. They have several debates between someone on the left vs someone on the right. The debates only last about 5 minutes though. I am glad you didn’t mention msnbc as having integrity. When people only listen to one side of the issues, they do believe everything they hear.

            The point went over your head. President Obama hasn’t circumvented the Constitution but he has used his congressionally granted right to use executive orders as has many presidents before him.
            You cannot disobey a SCOTUS decision as Jackson did with Chief Justice Marshall’s decision in Cherokee vs Georgia. Since popularity ruled the day instead of law and order in 1832 no Congress moved to impeach Jackson for his disobeying the court hence his Manifest Destiny won out and the indigenous were force marched from their plantations and homes in the Southeast to OK. This case is one of the most infamous in US history. Reading some historical court cases and applying it to some of your statement might help in making false accusations thus thinking for yourself instead of a pundit speaking for you.

            The Supreme Court has absolutely no police power at all. What has to happen is when someone does ignore the Supreme Court decision, the abused party will again go to a lower court that has police power and that court will undoubtedly rule with the Supreme Court. Congress did move to impeach Jackson, but did not remove him. It is not against any law to disobey the Supreme Court.

            Obama changed to implementation date of some of the things in the obamacare health tax law. The dates were written into the law. By changing the dates, he changed the law and he has no authority or power to change any laws executive order or not. The Constitution plainly states who can make and change laws, and the President is not included in that.

            Gee, if I remember correctly, both GWB AND Reagan gave illegal immigrants amnesty. Did you forget about that or was that ALSO unconstitutional. And, if so, why didn’t the Republicans raise hell about that when it occurred or do you only have a problem when it’s done by a Democratic president? Hypocrite, aren’t you?

            And the court just shut down the ones in Texas as being unconstitutional, but that doesn’t mean that the Texas courts will stand by it since they don’t seem to think they need to abide by Federal rules.

            The Constitution describes how all men are created equal then about 10 sentences below it goes on to discuss the “savages,” that are referred to as less than human. The framers didn’t see all men as equal only those who were in power.

    It is hysterically funny watching GOP Bulls all standing there kissing up to each other like the phonies they are. They are desperate to make it appear they are “united.” They are anything but united. The truth is these guys are warriors who are so in competition with each other they can only make “deals” to get each others’ support.

    This is the NEOCON GOP today…a bunch of loud mouths, no class, rude, disrespectful men whose Daddy and Mommy taught them to behave like savages in public. Yeesh…a more disgusting display of puke I’ve yet to encounter.

      Pence also said cigarette smoking does not cause cancer. I’d bring my friends to debate that, but they have passed away from smoking cigarettes. He is as ignorant as Trump.

    HOW IN THE WORLD DID TED CRUZ GET ELECTED TO THE SENATE FROM THE STATE OF TEXAS? after his speech last night and the smug act he put on not endorsing Trump, he couldn’t get elected dog catcher. being the most hated man in the senate and maybe now in Texas he will be rejected by the voters in Texas when his term is up..

      Anyone can be elected a politician in Texas. They elected a former coke addict/alcoholic draft dodger, a near idiot for guvnor who held Klan rallies at their rural property, elect an average Joe to be a coroner or justice of the peace and the list goes on including a Canadian born and reared socialist whose father was a Castro rebel. Why should anything surprise you about Rafael Cruz being elected as a senator in a state populated with druggies, drunks, felons and murders and where it’s legal to kill your spouse if you catch her in bed with another man? It’s Texas.

          In 1985 the SBC converged on Big D while I was working down there. In less than a day the emergency SBC meeting had gridlocked the city and not one hotel room downtown was available. It appears their numbers multiply like rabbits. I suspect many of them hold political offices so your statement rings true.

          Big D was a mess for three days then poof they were gone like cockroaches when the lights are turned on. My first exposure and I hope my last. They like to imbibe and play around from what we saw. Many were asking about Harry Hines Blvd looking for some naughty fun. We were surprised to learn some of them could read too.

Quit drooling and dripping ice cream on the keyboard as you try to convince us how intelligent it is to stand up for Liars, Morally Bankrupt Murders and Haters of America. In other words. Please do us all a favor and either delete the picture at least or better still “Go Away”.

            Gee, Terry, you are quite the man, aren’t you? First of all, I weigh 140 lbs dripping wet, which is quite average for someone who is 5’8″ tall. Check the stats.
            Secondly, I don’t eat ice cream….don’t particularly like it except occasionally. And, your comment about standing up for “liars, morally bankrupt murder and haters of America,” I would assume you’re talking about Trump, right? If you Google him, you’ll see that he has over 1300 lawsuits pending against him besides the one for Trump U. He has either gotten out of them by paying off the individuals or he’s settled out of court to keep him from being found guilty. There isn’t anyone running for the presidency who is more morally bankrupt and more of a liar than Donald Trump!
            As for doing you a favor…..sorry, you don’t deserve favors. And, I have just as much right as you to be on this website and use the picture that I have used. At least I am not ashamed to show my face….I noticed that you don’t have a picture of you showing. Afraid of something?

      Well, you have to realize that a majority of Texans are brainwashed to believe everything that their government and the GOP want them to believe!! There are a FEW Texans with brains, and we can only hope that they come out in full force on election day and change Texas from a GOP state to a Democratic state!!! One can always hope!

    Although I don’t particularly like Cruz, and I would never have voted for him, I have to respect him for speaking his conscience!! He said what he wanted to say despite the outcome. The funny part is that Trump KNEW what Cruz was going to say and let him give the speech anyway. He knew that Cruz would be castigated for his speech, and he used it for himself and publicity!!! Typical Trump action…. If he had been honest and not let Cruz speak because of what he was going to say, I would have been somewhat surprised, but I knew that wasn’t going to happen. Trump used Cruz to garner more publicity! Sad!

    The RNC has proven to be just a resurrection of the lynch mob mentality of yesteryear—and this is supposed to be a reflection of Christian values when the mob threatens Cruz’s wife, or another deranged man suggests that Clinton be shot?

    And they were able to find a “token” minister to shout his lungs out praising a deranged man who would be POTUS, while giving the false impression that the GOP welcomes unity of the races, a delusion that only said minister would feverishly imagine—I wonder if he suffered an aneurysm in the process.

    “There was an ugly crowd behind us…” in reference to Cruz’s wife having to be escorted out. “Ugly” is an understatement of the barbaric crowds,

    It is so funny to sit back and see all of the Democrat Instigators running right into these posting sections to keep us all riled up. Accusations about the Lynch Mob mentality of the Republican Party. Funny, but I didn’t see a single body hangin around in that auditorium, anywhere. Of course people are going to boo, and get very upset when they feel hoodwinked by someone they hoped they could trust. Now that we’ve got that all straightened out, let’s all just take a breath and ignore these ridiculous polls. Now, let’s all take the story back from the evil hands & intentions of the Media who are going to attempt to prove that we are all just a huge bunch of In Fighters and declare Trump and “All of us a Total Joke”. They will do everything they can to withhold the Truth of Hillary & Obama’s criminal activities and place the attention instead on our every flaw, just & only just as long as we give them the ammunition they need to use against us. The less we help them crucify us, the more time & opportunities the public will have to go back to listening about Hillary & Obama’s cover-ups and crimes. Let’s just leave these websites quietly, and turn the lights off behind us with them safely trapped inside the darkness they tried to create and keep the feeding frenzy alive. We are much smarter, civil and much more morally decent than they will ever be. Trump will be the next President come January 20th. Praise God! No more evil Hillary & Obama to be forced to listen to and follow whether we like it or not.

        Talk about spectacle. Yikes!!! I saw a News Clip of Kaine & Hillary both together at the same time. Kaine looked like someones drunk uncle and Hillary looked like a grinning cow. Hope you guys can still see after looking at them Day after day, after day after day, after day, after day. I really enjoyed all of the True Americans speaking the Truth for a Change. Even the biased leftist media were literally stumbling all over themselves trying to put out fires. Poor Gwen & Judy were nearly horrified a few times as they tried to jump in and cut off the flow of Truth that even Brooks and Shields recently confessed as well that Hillary is totally guilty of as well as Lynch & Obama. This is so Hillarious. Doubt you guys will be able to get anymore than “More Lies” “More Excuses” “More Taxes” “More Abortions” “More Freed Terrorists”. You know. All the things that those of you Eat Right Up! The Blood of the unborn is on your evil Democratic Party. God will repay. Remember “What…? As your jaws drop on election day. God does things way different when He’s had enough, and can even “Raise one up” and put an end to evil.

Obama and Hillary are very good human beings. They are held to high standards, and it’s because of that you will continue to harp in BS.
