Ted Cruz: As president, I will be unapologetically alongside the nation of Israel

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2016-02-20 02:19

I mentioned in a comment here awhile back that I didn't like Ted Cruz after he said in a debate, with the look of a fanatic in his eyes, that he would bomb Syria until the "sand glowed." It's not surprising to hear him say this now - admitting he's a Jew at heart. 

From The Hill:

Ted Cruz blasted Donald Trump on Friday, Feb. 19 at a town hall in South Carolina:

"Just this week, Donald Trump said on a TV program that he would be neutral between Israel and the Palestinians." 

"Let me tell you this: As president, I have no intention of being neutral. As president, I will be unapologetically alongside the nation of Israel."

Here's why a Donald Trump presidency poses a real threat to the American political establishment

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2016-02-14 13:15

Politico headlined a post-debate story this morning: "Trump crosses the 9/11 line"

Yes, he sure did – when he said in last night's debate that the Bush administration's push to go to war in Iraq was based on a false narrative. Here's the statement that no other Republican running for office would dare to make:

"We should have never been in Iraq. They lied, they said there were weapons of mass destruction. There were none and they knew that there were none."

Memorable photo from the 2016 campaign

Trump the Man is captured by photographer Joe Raedle of Getty Images explaining something to Rent-Boy Rubio during a break at last Saturday night's GOP debate in New Hampshire - after Rubio got royally taken to the cleaners by Gov. Chris Christie. I loved what Christie did - he was the star of the show in my eyes.

Does Rubio look like a high-school kid in this shot? Small and out of his league? In contrast, Trump looks fantastic.

My advice to Donald Trump: Ditch your daughter

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2016-02-02 12:52

From the campaign, that is. I'm one of those diehard Trump supporters, so I can overlook almost any reasonably normal human failings in the man and his family. But I just don't like the precious Ivanka, and I don't think anyone else does either. She comes across as too perfect, and even though smiling and trying to relate she remains someone living in a very different world than you and I and she is looking down from there. The terrible video she made to help her father in Iowa (pictured) was way too focused on herself, as though she's a selling point.

Trump needs to be convinced that Ivanka is not an asset to his campaign; nor would she be an asset to his presidency. He kept repeating the line, “Wouldn't it be great if Ivanka had her baby in Iowa?” when no one cared where she had her baby. She is not popular, he is. We don't love her, he does.

Jews hate Trump; pro-immigration Bloomberg may enter presidential race

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2016-01-23 12:51

The billionaire former Jewish mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg (right), has told his aides to draw up plans for an independent campaign for the U.S. presidency, the [J]ew York Times reported today.

Bloomberg told friends and associates that he would be willing to spend at least $1 billion of his own money on a campaign for the November 2016 election, the Times said, citing sources briefed on the former mayor's thinking.

He has given himself an early March deadline for entering the race, after commissioning a poll in December to see how he would fare against Trump and Clinton.

Bloomberg pretends that he's worried about Hillary Clinton losing to Bernie Sanders, but his real intention is to prevent a Trump victory by creating a 3-way race in which a “pragmatic businessman billionaire” can compete with Trump head to head. In my opinion, this has to be a consensus decision of the elite Jewish community worldwide.

If this happens, the "Jewish Problem" may come to the forefront.
