Beck Apologizes for Tweet, But Stands by Belief on Trump’s Voting Record

I lead with my mistakes.

I recently retweeted a tweet from Donald Trump that indicated he voted for Barack Obama. This tweet was a hoax, and I apologized to Donald for reposting it.

What makes it worse, is that when I clicked “send” I was in the middle of arduous and honorable charity work. Apparently, if I just forwarded a chain letter to 100 friends, Bill Gates would give $1 million to an orphanage that treats children without eyelids. Not to mention, I would get a free iPad! (I’m not sure why Bill Gates is giving away iPads.)

Trump has answered the charges aggressively, and that makes a lot of sense. Obviously, if people thought he voted for Barack Obama it would heavily damage his campaign. In fact, we can all probably agree that a vote for Obama should disqualify him from the republican nomination in the mind of almost every primary voter. If you couldn’t figure out that Barack Obama was going to be bad for this country, you probably shouldn’t be leading the opposition party.

As we talked about on the radio show Friday, no one except Donald knows for sure what he did when he was alone in the voting booth. This is why the tweet seemed so incredible to me. It was an additional piece of evidence that seemingly proved a strong circumstantial case. (That’s still no excuse for reposting it.)

But, while the tweet appeared to be new evidence, it wasn’t part of my reasoning when I said it on radio and television. As I pointed out on Fox, I was referring to the 2008 election, not 2012. Here is why I believe Donald Trump did, in fact, vote for Barack Obama in 2008:

1. He was a registered democrat when he cast the vote. Trump had been a registered democrat for 7 years by the time the 2008 election came around.

2. This doesn’t guarantee that Trump voted for Obama of course. However, registered democrats in New York voted for Obama by a 91% to 8% margin. So, if Trump was in that 8%, he was quite the outlier.

3. He remained in the democratic party for almost another year after casting the vote.

4. In the decade leading up to the vote, he was a dedicated Democrat, with the only exception being his flirtation with the Independence (Reform) Party in 1999-2000. Incidentally, in this period, large parts of his platform were considerably to the left of Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama. In fact, I don’t believe even Bernie Sanders has ever proposed a wealth tax on what is in your bank account.

5. In the year leading up to the vote, he spoke favorably about Hillary Clinton, telling Wolf Blitzer “I think Hillary would do a good job.” Obviously, it is theoretically possible for someone that thinks Hillary would be a good president to vote against Obama. But to paraphrase Donald: “Not a lot of Republican votes come out of blue state democrats that support Hillary Clinton.”

6. He was among the fiercest critics of the Bush administration. Yes, now it’s hard to believe that he would have voted for Obama, but in 2008 he had spent several years speaking just as negatively about Bush. He called him “a terrible president, perhaps the worst president in the history of this country.”

7. It’s not just that he called Bush a “disaster” many times. It’s why he called him a disaster: Iraq. He called the invasion of Iraq “one of the worst decisions ever made” saying it would have been a “wonderful thing” if he had been impeached because of the war. In fact, he was arguing for the war related impeachment of Bush just two weeks before he cast his presidential vote.

8. Given his opinion on Iraq, consider Trump’s available choices as he looked back: one candidate on record opposing the war, one candidate on record passionately supporting “one of the worst decisions ever made.” Why wouldn’t he vote for Obama?

9. Similarly, given his opinion on Iraq, consider Trump’s available choices as he looked forward: one candidate on record saying he would end the war, the other on record saying he would escalate it. Why wouldn’t he vote for Obama?

10. He continued to praise Obama after the election telling Larry King “Here’s a man that not only got elected, I think he’s doing a really good job.”

11. He gushed about Obama in his 2009 book: “His comments have led me to believe that he understands how the economy works on a comprehensive level. He has also surrounded himself with very competent people, and that’s the mark of a strong leader.”

12. He supported Obama’s first main policy push, the stimulus, saying it was “what we need” while praising Obama’s for “building infrastructure, building great projects, putting people to work in that sense.”

13. He supported Obama’s efforts to fix the banks including to potentially “nationalize” them. “I do agree with what they’re doing with the banks. Whether they fund them or nationalize them, it doesn’t matter.”

14. Looking back at this period, he described himself as Obama’s “biggest cheerleader.”

15. Trump’s argument is that he raised money for McCain, so obviously he supported him. Is this really a standard Donald feels comfortable with? Does that mean he also supported John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer?

16. Immediately following the passage of Obamacare, while even moderate republicans coalesced around its repeal, Donald Trump made a maximum donation to the campaign of Harry Reid. Reid was one of the few vulnerable democrats able to hold on to power in the Tea Party wave election of 2010.

17. Speaking of the Tea Party wave, put yourself in that moment again. Hope for constitutional preferences was renewed. Hundreds of thousands of people were gathering all across the country and in Washington DC for Restoring Honor. Conservatives celebrated the biggest wave in a century. One month after that election, Donald Trump gave $50,000 to Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.

Do I believe Donald Trump voted for Barack Obama in 2008? Yes. Yes, I do.

I could go on, but I’m in the middle of intense financial negotiations with an ousted Nigerian prince.

      Cruz who has a more traditional finance operation, is aggressively courting establishment financiers. He held a fundraiser Monday at the New Orleans home of Mary Matalin, a Bush family loyalist and close adviser to former vice president Richard B. Cheney, and drew support there from some traditional party players.

      • Robert Smith

        that is what I’m concerned about with both Rubio and Cruz….they still have that Republican Establishment tugging at both his purse strings and heart strings.

        • MikefromNC

          The republican establishment absolutely despises Cruz. Moreso than Trump.

          • Robert Smith

            Sorry….can’t agree with that statement. But, that’s okay….as I stated, I’ll take any of the Republican Candidates over the Commies running on the other side. I hope you feel the same way!

          • J C Keene

            All the more reason to support Cruz! :~)

          • MikefromNC

            Exactly right!

    • Morgan McGlynn

      I guess Trump was “bought by” George Soros, Deutsche Bank and any other entity Trump has borrowed from if borrowing money means you’re bought by them. I don’t think that’s the case, but apparently you and The Donald do?

      • leonrogson

        Trump was clearly bought by .. Trump

        • Morgan McGlynn

          Yes, we should ignore the facts. Trump admits he pays to play, and is a crony capitalist, he supported liberals, not just with money, but with his high praise. Recently! Clearly we should forget Trump’s past just as we were to ignore Obama’s past. After all, past actions mean nothing, only words on the campaign trail mean anything when it comes to Trump. Even if he changes during the campaign, as he has, pay no attention. Cruz and his 97% conservative voting record also means nothing, he’s now to be considered part of the problem cause Donald told us so.

          • leonrogson

            He plays to win, using the rules of the game as they exist. He was successful so don’t knock it.
            Now he wants to play a different game, I look around at the lies given by the Reps, the hole dug by the Dems and say “A plague on both your houses” Trump is a gamble, I hope we don’t get skewered like Mercutio.

          • Morgan McGlynn

            I don’t knock Trump for his business success, I was a fan, but it doesn’t mean he should be President. George Soros, Bill Gates, and others were very successful in business too, but they are left wingers, who don’t want to give others the opportunities they had. I don’t want them to be President either. They support liberals and liberal policies. In fact, Trump was a big supporter of the left and their policies most of his life too. There are many successful business people who don’t actively support and praise liberals, Trump wasn’t one of them. Now he is the typical Campaign Conservative Cruz talks about now that he wants the Republican nomination. He’s no different than the other politicians, what in his life make you think he’ll stand up against crony capitalists in D.C. when he funded and praised them in New York? Trump is playing the typical political game, as he has always done to advance himself. That’s what guys like Boehner, McConnell and so many others currently running for President do. Now Trump supports ethanol subsidies to pander in Iowa, so when the going gets tough, he does what he has always done, we shouldn’t be surprised. He’s a typical politician with more charisma, he’s not going to fight the establishment. He was bragging yesterday about all the establishment politicians who want to support him now. They know they can deal with him, they know their gravy train will not end under Trump now, so he’s ok. They’d rather have Jeb, but know Trump will not fight the corruption. Instead of gambling, I’ll go with the consistent, lifetime conservative who has fought for us since before he was a Senator thank you. CRUZ 2016!!

          • leonrogson

            You are right, and I tended to think like you. But then I considered that my information is that anyone who ever worked with Cruz hates him (exaggeration?). On the other hand anyone who worked with Trump, even his previous wife he cheated on, seem to feel good about him.
            Lastly, Cruz is too dogmatic for me, and I don’t believe he has Trumps ability to break through and actually win.
            So we differ, but our disagreement is narrow. I’ll not be unhappy to see a Cruz Presidency in the future, for this time, I want someone who can shake up the establishment to the core, and win while doing so. Cruz can do the shakeup, but could he win?
            Trump also points out that having been a “gravy train” he knows how to manipulate our “establishment” and that he will use that knowledge to be an effective President. I have a lot of hopes for him, I hope he doesn’t disappoint. I believe his megalomania is on our side. He’ll want to be remembered as a great President.
            Leon

          • Morgan McGlynn

            Thanks Leon, but if Trump were to actually fight the establishment, he wouldn’t be liked either. Remember when the establishment was hating on Trump? Now they are a little less against him, because they fear Cruz more, and they see Trump is not going to fight them. We see that now with Trumps pandering to the ethanol lobby. He wants to increase it more than Obama. Not everyone hates Cruz, but he has many haters because he has been ACTUALLY, REALLY fighting for the people, and against the “Washington Cartel”. I think if Cruz is the nominee, he will break through because he is a good communicator. I saw him on one of the late night shows turn boos into cheers when he was given the chance to explain his views on marriage. He has that ability. Trump gave Cruz glowing praise recently, and said he shouldn’t be controversial, he was doing the right thing. When Cruz started catching Trump in the polls, Trump started putting out the nasty Ted stuff, knowing it’s not true, just like he knew the birther issue wasn’t true even though he pushes it now to confuse people and to try hurting Ted. It’s David vs. Goliath, and Goliath was rocked, causing him to expose himself and his true colors. I hope Trump will be a great President if he wins, but based on his past history of crony capitalism, and his current actions when he found himself dropping in the polls, the evidence is not supporting that position.

          • leonrogson

            We only differ on Trumps v Cruz’s ability to make deals and implement them. I like Cruz and his unbending conservativism. I’d like to get there. A bull in a china shop is what Cruz is seems like to me.. Trump like an elephant with a delicate trunk with which to jostle and cajole obstacles out of the way. Trump would not have been successful without that capability. My understanding (not knowledge) of Cruz is that he knocks down those in his path until he is stopped (like in the Senate and the House).

          • Morgan McGlynn

            I would like to be able to support Trump and be hopeful he could get GOOD things done, or more importantly, STOP the bad things that have been done. Unfortunately, or fortunately Trump’s personal leftist style attacks, gave me concern and forced me to look into his rhetoric and his history. His history, his very recent history is NOT good. Now Trump is saying Cruz is worse than Hillary, not good based on his history of supporting leftist policies and people. He said days during the Mayorial race in NY that the candidate who was way left of Sanders would Make New York Great again?????!!!! That was just a couple of years ago. He attacked Reagan’s policies, and on and on. He didn’t have to do these things to do business in NY, he could have said nothing if he didn’t believe what he said like many other successful business men in liberal places, including New York. The red flags are ALL over the place if we are willing to look, but it’s up to you. Republicans already can get things done, they’ve proven that, unfortunately, it’s the left’s agenda and the crony capitalist agenda. Trump seems to be more of the same, with an Obama ability to lie and create straw man arguments, and personally demonize his opponents. Notice Cruz is sticking to the issues and doesn’t personally attack. They don’t hate him in DC because he’s a nasty guy, they hate him because he does what he promised us he’d do, and tries to make others stick to the promises they made. That shouldn’t be a negative for him for those of us who want the politicians to stop saying one thing when they run for office and do the opposite immediately after the election is over. Also, do you TRUST Donald Trump to appoint Supreme Court judges? We are one vote away from losing the Second Amendment, and many other rights. If so, what evidence is there to support that trust? Trump thinks his sister would make a great Supreme Court justice, but she’s a left winger, just like her brother was most of his life and probably still is. I’m sorry, the more you look into Trump and watch his actions, the more obvious it is that he doesn’t have the judgement, temperament or history to give anyone paying attention the confidence that he will make a good President.

          • leonrogson

            You have excellent points, and I worry. I am betting on Trump the problem solver, not the ideology, not the rightist or the leftist. It is why I love Governor Romney. I would like someone like Cruz, I hope I’ll be able to vote for him in the future.

          • Morgan McGlynn

            Thanks, what can I say then. I can’t support someone like Trump the more I see him. It seems as soon as Trump’s flustered he reverts back to his leftist ways, I don’t see that as being a problem solver, but rather another divider like Obama. I don’t think the leftist positions he espoused all his life are good for the Country as we’ve seen in recent years, like with his support of TARP and the Stimulus. I also don’t want Trump to nominate more Supreme court justices, but to each his or her own. Have a good day. :)

  • Getaclue

    All this shows that Beck cannot accept that he was wrong. Beck took a page out of the leftist playbook by putting an untruth out, apologized for the mistake but the damage was already done. Beck has now taken this further by continuing to peddle his snake oil against Trump.
    Beck acts like the left with vicious untrue attacks. Shameful.

    • Flacwby

      I know as a Trump supporter you can’t face the truth’s about your candidate. Trump followers are the same as Obama supporters. They want an extremist in office who will do their bidding with complete disregard for the Constitution and working with Congress. Don’t get me wrong, I support Trump, but I’m also concerned that he’s exactly like Obama in regard to personality and process and 1 year in you’ll start seeing Executive Orders in the amount surpassing even Obama. After all he was a Democrat much longer than he’s been a Republican so you know he’ll follow the Democrat play book.

      • Getaclue

        You know Beckabot. …Beck back in the day was an alcoholic and he changed and turned his life around.
        David Horowitz was a flaming liberal that has turned conservative.
        Beck doesn’t even consider that Trump maybe has changed because of the environment Obama had created.
        So perhaps Beck needs to step down from his judgmental bully pulpit.
        And no one said anything about being a Trump supporter, I just don’t like hypocrites like Beck.

        • J C Keene

          Neither Horowitz or Beck made life changes to run for election. We all change our minds about issues as we mature and search our hearts. The question is do we come out of the change with higher values and principles or do we make changes just to gain something? I think we all know why Trump changed…

          • Getaclue

            LOL..I didn’t know candidates for President were supposed to be superhuman and never change their minds.
            Beck shouldn’t try to smear someone if he too has walked the road of self change.
            You have a strawman argument.

          • Robert Smith

            Ronald Reagan did…..

          • Getaclue

            Excellent point! Thank you!
            Ronald Reagan having been a lifelong liberal Democrat, his views changed. He became a conservative and in 1962 switched to the Republican Party

    • Daniel Anthony Moir

      If you have ever bought anything posted by Breitbart then you have bought into severe untruth.

      • Getaclue

        I know Beckabots dislike Andrew Breitbart because he saw Beck for the backstabbing shill he was.
        If Beck acts like the left, he deserves the blowback.

  • TopAssistant

    I wonder if Trump and his fans will support Sen. Cruz’s bill he filed on November 3rd?

    Sen. Cruz (R-Texas) filed (S. 2230) and Rep. Diaz-Balart (R-Florida) filed (H.R.3892) both bills titled ‘‘Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015”.

    Isn’t our NATIONAL SECURITY still the TOP priority for all Americans, especially our USELESS politicians at ALL
    levels of government (from mayor to president), bureaucrats, flag officers, law enforcement, military and everyone that takes an oath of office or is it now Cultural Marxism i.e. political correctness?

    It appears Cultural Marxism i.e. political correctness is now the top priority for our national politicians that makes decisions on our national security, the funding of our military, the UNCONSTITUTIONAL funding of foreign governments and the United Nations (UN)! As a citizen of America it is also your top priority and you must make sure every politician that represents you follows our Constitution Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 “provide for common defense” of this nation or we will become a part of the international effort to destroy us in every way possible including our financial destruction.

    Who wants to destroy us you ask! How about the United Nations (UN), the 57 Muslim nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Muslim Brotherhood (MB) located in over 100 nations, and the newly formed United States Muslim Brotherhood political party, the United States Council of the Muslim Organizations (USCMO)? The United States Council of the Muslim Organizations (USCMO) was established in March 2014, with strong support from the political activism by Muslim Brotherhood-linked operatives in our government, including the open support of the U.S. Department of
    State!

    What is the difference between these Muslim groups: Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS/ISIL/Islamic State/Islamic Caliphate/Daesh, Al Nusra, Al Shabab, and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)? They all want to form a GLOBAL Caliphate, an Ummah ruled by Shariah/Islamic law which is a common denominator but the real difference is the time to reach a global Caliphate and the methods of doing so. Either way they all want a world ruled by Shariah/Islamic law and we are funding our own destruction plus we are sending our military around the globe to fight and die installing Shariah/Islamic law. The Muslim Brotherhood wrote a plan to destroy us from within by slowly by infiltrating America using what they term as their “Civilization-Jihad Process” plan and, it is working thanks to our USELESS politicians!

    Never forget the Muslim Brotherhood owns Mosques in the United States! The Muslim Brotherhood and Common Core are connected! Never forget the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party, the United States Council of the Muslim Organizations (USCMO)!

    Do we have any politician(s) with the guts to challenge the Muslim Brotherhood, Democrat Party, RINO/GOP leadership/followers in the Republican Party and the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party, the United States Council of the Muslim Organizations (USCMO)?

    How can we stop the Islamization of America? Sen. Cruz’s new bill will expose all this providing we can get his supporters and other interested in our national security to ask their two Senators to co-sponsor his new bill S. 2230 ‘‘Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015’’!

    On November 3rd Sen. Cruz (R-Texas) filed (S. 2230) and Rep. Diaz-Balart (R-Florida) filed (H.R.3892) both bills titled ‘‘Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015.” These bills will require the Secretary of State to submit a report to Congress on the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, and for other purposes.

    Will you take the time to read the bill and ask your two senators and House member to co-sponsor the bills? What is the difference between ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood in America? Both want a GLOBAL Caliphate, an Ummah ruled by Shariah/Islamic law and the time it takes to reach it! http://www.cruz.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=2501

    • Robert Smith

      Good reason to keep him in the Senate.

  • Daniel Anthony Moir

    Glenn, is it possible to get video of Trump’s pro Obama quotes? Sometimes people have to see it to believe it.

  • Joe Smith

    Look I can understand Trump changing some of his opinions over the course of 15 years.

    I have a much harder time believing someone who changes his vote twice in the course of three minutes like Cruz. Someone who winks at lodge republicans saying you are safe in NY but has a different message in the Bible Belt. Someone who rails against wall street and NY while his wife works for Goldman Sachs in NY and receives large loans from NY Banks some of which he reports and some of which he “mistakenly” doesn’t.

    • Morgan McGlynn

      I have a loan from Bank of America and previously from Citibank, yet I was against bailing out the banks and Wall Street. I bet many people with loans felt the same, so I don’t understand why people think borrowing money is an endorsement of Big Banks and Wall Street. By that standard, you should have “a much harder time” believing Mr. Trump who received many loans and plenty of money from the Big Banks and the Hedge Funds he rails against. I like Donald, but he and his supporters are sounding desperate.

      • Joe Smith

        Except that isn’t the same standard at all. Trump is a businessman when he receives a loan it’s to build a building, bridge, or roads.

        Cruz used the loan to finance his campaign and got an extremely low-interest loan from the same bank his wife happened to just work for. The real question is whether Mrs. Cruz’s position at Goldman Sachs – where she is now on leave – affected the availability of that loan.

        The good news is the FEC is now investigating so we should get an answer soon.

        • Morgan McGlynn

          Trump builds buildings for his own enrichment. Trump got loans and has had hedge fund investors for said buildings. I don’t think it’s a problem, but Trump would be more beholden to his investors under those circumstances than Cruz would be by borrowing money against his own assets (hence the lower interest rates). Yes, Cruz borrowed money against his own assets to finance his campaign against a multi millionaire who was getting money from the establishment and able to put millions of his own money into the campaign. Cruz borrowed the money without special favor when he was way behind in the polls. What confidence and conviction.

          • Robert Smith

            You obviously don’t understand how real estate finance works for large commercial properties…..the buildings need to stand on their own in this type of financing and The Donald, would not be personally guaranteeing the loan or any of the equity put into it. The permanent lender is looking solely to the building for repayment. The equity partners are likewise looking for a return based upon the performance of the building. The Donald due to his success may be able to get a lower spread on his deal which equates to a slightly lower rate both for his debt and his equity cost, but he is still getting a standard type deal. To say his status gave him something that resulted in him having less of a hammer over his head by lenders and equity sources is just not true….lender and equity guys want a certain return. Also…The Donald isn’t the only successful real estate developer. Lenders and Equity guys have other places to put their money too! And I sincerely doubt The Donald would put himself into a weak position beholden to anyone. He doesn’t have to!

          • Morgan McGlynn

            I understand Robert, just like I understand that I wouldn’t support the Bank Bailout just because I have a loan from a big bank, and I doubt Cruz would change his position for political benefit. That’s not based on idol worship, but rather his 97% conservative voting record. Unfortunately, Donald supported the Bank bailouts, he’s already admitted he paid to play, and his supporters repeat it as a badge of honor. Most of them claim to be against crony capitalism, while loving one of the biggest crony capitalists.

        • Morgan McGlynn

          Cruz is a normal non-billionaire citizen who borrows money against his assets just like millions of normal people do, hence the lower interest rate. It would have been the same whether his wife worked there or not. I’m surprised how many people are fooled by a man who espouses liberal policies until he runs for election, and quickly starts doing it again when he gets rattled by poll numbers of a real conservative. His knee jerk reaction is childish name calling, leftist attacks and lurching back to his leftist positions, yet some people are still fooled as he exposes himself. I don’t get it. Trump admits to buying politicians, which of course is illegal. Maybe he should be investigated, just to get the issue off the table, you know, for his own good.

          • Joe Smith

            Would it? If it would have been the same why get a loan from a bank your wife works at? I’m sure Cruz had many lending institutions willing to offer him money if as many of you say this was an above board loan.

            Also, why hide the loan by not filing it properly with the FEC. It has now come out there is yet another loan which he again *forgot* to file with the FEC this time from Citi.

            One inadvertent “mistake” raises suspicion. Two moves the discussion beyond suspicion and to motive.

            To me the motivation is clear he wanted to create a false narrative that would help propel him to the white-house “Liquidate everything” really meant “get my wife’s bank to give me a loan”.

          • Morgan McGlynn

            Why wouldn’t you get a loan from a bank your wife works at? What kind of question is that? Think about it, I’m sure you can figure out many reasons you’d get a loan at a bank that your wife works at. I know Trump likes to make up these stories so as not to engage in the real issues, but I’d like to think people, especially those who take the time to post would be a little above the average low information crowd. Cruz didn’t hide the loans, he reported them, but didn’t report them on all the filings he was supposed to. If he hid it, you wouldn’t know about it because the opposition research would not have found it on the filings where he reported it publicly. Research it, he did liquidate everything and took loans against his assets. Not everyone is a billionaire. PS: Donald Trump got loans from Goldman Sachs, and money from Wall Street Hedge Funds, AND he supported the Big Bank/Wall Street Bailout while railing against them. It is clear that someone wants to create a false narrative, but that person is named Donald J. Trump.

  • disqus_ED8aWHaIWD

      Can’t handle the truth, can you. You ARE no better than a leftist liberal. No, you are ACTING like a leftist liberal. Get your head together. Trump was singing the praises or Obama and Hillary and Harry Reid only four years ago and now tells you he is a “Conservative”. He is a LIAR!

  • larrymwalkerjr

    Since Trump endorsed McCain on Larry King’s show, in 2008, and donated $28,000 to his campaign (http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2015/07/18/trump-2008-mccain-endorsement-cabrera-nr-sot.cnn), your circumstantial evidence to the contrary has about a 99.9% chance of being total bull crap.

    • TheseTruths

      Right. Beck doubles down on producing negative “evidence” but ignores all other evidence.

      People might want to research Cruz’s father’s comments about Ted being anointed to take control of society. Look up the Seven Mountains mandate. Do Beck and Cruz subscribe to this? If so, we need to know it.

    • Morgan McGlynn

      Your link doesn’t work, at least it didn’t when I clicked on it. But are you really trying to say Trump donating money and saying good things about someone means Trump supports that person? Isn’t it “The Donald” himself who tells us his “endorsements” and “donations” to liberals does not mean he supports those candidates and politicians? My head is spinning trying to keep up with him and his supporters.

      • larrymwalkerjr

        Sorry, take the “)” off the end of it: http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2015/07/18/trump-2008-mccain-endorsement-cabrera-nr-sot.cnn . All I’m doing is reiterating what Trump said. He made the statement in 2008 that he was endorsing McCain, and federal records show that he gave $28,000 to McCain’s campaign that year. He called Glenn out the other day and said affirmatively that he voted for McCain, that he did not vote for Obama, and that Glenn is a lying “” “”. So where does that leave Glenn?

        • Morgan McGlynn

          I’ll take trump at his word regarding 2008, because how can anyone dispute his vote? The only thing I’m saying is Donald donates and praises left wing politicians all the time, yet he tells us not to pay attention to it, it doesn’t mean he really supports them. It’s a little hard to know where he really stands considering his donations, and words that support liberals and liberal policies…recently not in the distant past. I’m glad he brought immigration to the forefront, but I am supporting the man who has a 97% conservative record and fought for Conservatism for most of his adult life.

    • Robert Smith

      He probably donated to both sides….remember he is a businessman and he wouldn’t be the only one to do it….it doesn’t make me happy but it is what it is.

  • EvanQueitsch

    So, you still have no idea what he did our didn’t do and you still stand there smearing him without knowing what the truth is. Typical. How about you just admit that you were wrong, apologize and most importantly, STOP DOING THE THING YOU JUST APOLOGIZED FOR. You’re a grown man who still hasn’t learned what I teach my kids… That an apology means nothing if you keep doing the same thing. If you mean it, show it. Then again, we all know that you don’t mean it. Your apologies are hollow and weak because you continue the same actions you pretend to be sorry for.

  • berkybow

    I am for Trump but wanted Cruz as my second choice…Been a bit disappointed in Cruz as of late…too smirky…too much “lawyer” tactics..That is another thing about Trump along with so many others..he is not a lawyer!!

    • MikefromNC

      You have to be kidding!
      You like Trump – because Cruz is “too smirky”?

  • Robert Smith

    Glenn…..have listened to you for years and I’m concerned about the direction of the show. I am not a lefty….I am a staunch, anti-abortion, gun-toting, Mark Levin loving, Constitution loving conservative that was concerned with the change of the country starting back in the early 60s……I understand the issues with Trump, but you have to agree that he is making everyone else toe the line and it is fairly evident that we aren’t going to get an establishment candidate to vote for this time…..Bush, Kasich, Christie, etc don’t stand a chance…..we shall see in a few weeks when the primaries start.

    • MikefromNC

      We have a chance to choose possibly the most intelligent, most conservative, most constitutionally literate candidate in several lifetimes. And you guys want to throw that away for somebody who was a proud democrat when our current president was elected.
      Do you ever stop and listen to what you’re saying? Can you slow down and let reality seep in just a little?
      And Cruz is NOT an establishment candidate – they despise him.

      • Robert Smith

        Mike….not sure what you are insinuating in regards to what I said. All I said was that we aren’t going to have a Progressive Candidate this time, unlike McCain and Romney. Am I a bit concerned about somethings I have not heard yet from Trump….yes, I am. I want to hear more….last time I looked, election day is a bunch of months from now. I am just glad that we have a bunch of good options this time and the Progressives are getting whacked. I firmly believe that Trump did a bunch of stuff in the past that frankly rankles me, but this was for business expediency. If you are really troubled by that, then it is your choice not to support Trump. I firmly believe he is the smartest SOB running for President we have had in a long time that understands how to get things done and doesn’t let things get in his way. I also feel that he is reading the country correctly and is going to bring a bunch of voters out of the nonvoting category this election. Now, all you Rand Paul supporters and supposed real conservatives which I get a lot of grief from, like Glenn Beck, I find it funny that there are few conservative pundits against Trump, other than the Establishment loving pundits….Levin, and Hannity like what Trump is saying (other than the birther thing, which also makes me want to say come on Trump, get off of it) and think he is sincere in his stances. We shall see I guess. All I can say is if we continue down the current path, we ain’t gonna make it!

        • MikefromNC

          Your own words… ” I firmly believe that Trump did a bunch of stuff in the past that frankly rankles me, but this was for business expediency.”
          So if it somehow benefits him, its okay to throw right and wrong out the window. Yeah, buddy! That sounds like just the kind of guy we need in the White House.

  • TheseTruths

    “I lead with my mistakes,” and then talking about one’s charity work, is a self-serving way to apologize. A true apology looks something like this: “I was wrong to do ___, and I apologize.” One could elaborate on why it was wrong or on the harm it has caused, but to praise oneself and then continue to denigrate the person is beyond the pale.

    • regularguy1890

      I think you missed the self-deprecating sarcasm. Glenn Beck was not saying that he was really doing charity work. He was referencing another well-known hoax ( the chain letter) like the one he had just been taken in by (the tweet by “Donald Trump”). I admire Glenn Beck’s talents. He is able to see the big picture. As I see it politics follows culture, and he sees that too. We can battle for political power to “conservatize” the country, and we should. However, the real battle is for the culture. Political correctness is a bane for this or any country because it makes honesty difficult. I think what people like about Trump is his courage when the media piles on one of his statements. He doesn’t wilt and vacillate, but reasserts. That courage to offend is not the same thing as telling the truth. We all get angry when we are called out on our hidden agendas. That is when we appeal to political correctness. What we need is a return to truth, justice, integrity. Go back to church and hear difficult things. Stop sleeping with people you haven’t made a commitment to. Stop making excuses for your dishonesty in the business place. Grow your soul and think about the other guy (girl). If we want smaller government, then we need to be capable of governing ourselves.

      • TheseTruths

        I see what you’re saying about the chain letter; I didn’t read it carefully. I think that had no place in an apology. Just make it clear, make it humble, and stop. “I lead with my mistakes” says “look at me.” And the rest of the piece was a reiteration of Beck’s doubts about whether Trump voted for O, and Beck’s laundry list of things against Trump. That is not an apology. It reminds me of Cruz’s non-apology to NY. Birds of a feather…

  • leonrogson

    You have proven that Trump goes by an understanding of the world he lives in, not by some pre-conceived set of doctrines. I was a Kennedy Democrat, and also loved Moynihan. I love Cruz, but he needs to learn street smarts and get people he works with to love him. I believe the rest of the bunch (outside of Trump) are politicians, malleable, will compromise anything to get elected. Example Ryan and the Sell Out Bus and Mitch McConnell and everything he has done.

    So it is Trump, because I believe his goals are to make America Great Again, and that he would never permit himself to be a failed president.

    He has the skills, he is loved by those that work for him, and he can talk at any level he wants, from 4th Grade to PHD in economics. He has the flair to represent America’s Greatness, and seems to have the stamina to get us back there as well. He promises to be frugal, cut taxes, and streamline the American system of “give me.” I believe he is serious about restoring the economy and getting even playing fields with our economic adversaries. I also believe he will cream ISIS and restore our position in the world.

    I am worried about the how, since he keeps his cards close to his vest. But we already see how good it is to telegraph each move to our enemies.

    So, I accept your criticism, but don’t care. Purity at the cost of ability (CRUZ), impurity in means and motives (the rest), v flexibility in means, seems like a no brainer.

  • berkybow

    Glen..I understand based on what happened with people not looking at Obamas background how you feel that no one is looking at Trumps..I have…there are no Communists or Marxists that I can see that he has followed..his life IS a open book..he WILL talk to just about everyone..yes he has said things that I do not approve of, but I believe he is a man of his word and can negotiate like no one else(Congress/Senate/World Leaders) he comes with credibility with those same World Leaders. He has excited the people like no one else has across the board with the exception of Obama. BUT he is NOT Obama. My gut trusts him, yours does not and I understand. Cruz needs to wait another 4 to 8 years..perhaps as VP he would steer some of Trumps actions. Trump is brilliant and it is fun to watch..We have been beaten down for so long with no ones voice strong enough to speak out on behalf of the “Conservatives” who are NOT Establishment and perhaps are not as worried about Social issues at this time except for Freedom of Religion which Trump would fight for and it feels good to have a “leader.” I feel safe with him. He is a good family man. Very generous and I am impressed by many people like “Judge Jeanine and Sean Hannity” who really like him and possibly would vote for him. AND he is bringing a lot of forgotten Dems and Independents into the fold..I do not believe Cruz can do that. I totally respect your opinion but I am not swayed yet..still a long ways to go! God Bless and keep up your work!

    • MikefromNC

      The “good family man” said the thing his ex-wives had to learn is that it was a sin to turn 30. Yeah, he’s a peach all right!

May the Lord bless your work, sir.

  • barbarafromnyc

    Of course Trump voted for Obama – at least in 2008. You’d have to be brain dead to think otherwise. His leftist leanings up to recently is why I don’t trust him. His insults to women especially, but not exclusively, is why I won’t vote for him. While I want the things he said he would do, question remains; will he hand the election to Hillary?

    1) DONALD TRUMP actively supported John McCain in 2009, and Romney in 2012.

    2) Trump tells everyone at his rallies that he gave donations to politicians on BOTH sides if they asked. It was good business. (He never broke campaign contribution laws or wrote campaign contributions.)

    3) Trump was a Democrat prior to 2009.
    (Ronald Regan was a Democrat at one time, and even considered joining the communist party as a young actor.)

    4) As far as GWBush, Jeb wrote in his own book “Immigration Wars” that 9-11 was due to “leaky immigration laws”. Jeb got that right.
    GWB did nothing to fix our leaky immigration laws before or after 9-11.
    We still have leaky immigration laws that need to be fixed.

    This time around, please, CONFIRM ALL PRESIDENTIAL PROMISES ON A LIST, that the Voters can be assured that we are able to correct any candidate’s promises back to THE ORIGINAL PROMISES, No Broken Oath of Office, No temper tantrum excuse to dishonor and disobey The Duties of the U.S. Presidential Duties, performed by ALMOST ALL FORMER U.S. Presidents of Honor and Great Accomplishments. This time IF a President decides to make his own rules, Voters will be enmasse on every square foot of the D.C.

For those who bash President Bush over ridding the planet of a brutal dictator, I am proud of what HE DID ACCOMPLISH IN IRAQ-through my Grandson’s double tours in Iraq-and all of those military heroes who fought against the enemies, from the US children, and adults-there were loads of boxes delivered to the Iranian people of supplies for the schools which were built, and would school BOYS AND GIRLS EQUALLY. It was an illegal foreign born candidate, shoved by Soros and the Communist treason planners, that made his own decisions to not cover all of the bases, but we knew the experience and knowledge was NOT THERE and did not vote him in. Trump wants to correct all of those untrue statements about lauding Obama’s lack of following the US Presidential Greats.

    What a hypocrite! Trump was a big part of the problem he complains about. How rich!!!!

    • MIKE

      Nope. Trump stays within the law, and you can not prove otherwise.
      Bribing any government official is illegal, so stop your lying.

      Further if you don’t like existing laws don’t blame the people who obey them,
      blame the existing politicians who write them or can change them.

    Rubio would make an outstanding president, but may be kept from winning the primaries by the other establishment guys: Bush, Katich, and Christie. Too bad, without those 3 Rubio would be right there with Trump. Whatever happens, any of the 3 with a chance: Trump, Rubio, Cruz, would be vastly superior to Clinton. Interesting that the “base” voters for both Obama and Clinton (blacks, other minorities, young folks) are the very ones who are hurt most by the liberal progressive policies. I guess we can’t fix stupid. The democratic strategy to win: “Dump on our base, enrich ourselves, blame Republicans. Rinse and Repeat.” The only silver lining to the dumbocrats keeping the White House will be an even bigger takeover at the state level by the Republicans. I figure that the GOP could capture full control of 38 to 39 states (governor, senate, house) if the Liberals continue on their current job killing path. There will always be the few loony tune states totally dominated by the Obama Kool-Aid sippers, so no help for those. But…the Dems continued total disregard for the constitution threatens our country, so we need to take back and restore the Presidency to its proper role….one of Leadership.

    • MIKE

      Rubio is a member of the Gang of Eight.

      ” In a Spanish-language interview Sunday (2013) with the network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio,
      the leading Republican on the Gang of Eight
      comprehensive immigration reform group,
      made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nation’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before
      any new border security or
      internal enforcement measures are in place,
      and will in no way be conditional on any security requirements.”

      http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/marco-rubio-in-immigration-reform-legalization-comes-first-it-is-not-conditional/article/2531504

      • GrubbyHardrock

        In the world of “anything you have ever said or ever done can and will be used against you forever” that we live in, many may look at Rubio’s support of that effort as a disqualifier. By that logic Hillary should already be serving 15 to life. But….look at the overall positions of all the candidates. Rubio could unite a lot of the GOP factions. He would be a pragmatic leader, not just a protest. Our economy would revive, unlike what will happen if we get Hillary. And…young folks like him, depriving the dems of a part of their base.

        • MIKE

          I voted for him for Senate.
          He got elected under false pretenses. He lied to us too much.
          Will stay home rather than vote for him, since he is just a bad as Hillary.

          Rubio is nothing but a lawyer politician just like Obama.
          He knows nothing about the economy.

          He can be bought and controlled by his billionaire backers.

  • R G

    Trump only has the support that he has because the media markets him daily. They make him the center of many news cycles. They play entire campaign events. One America News Network, which is a credible news source, unfortunately replaces their programming with full coverage of just about every Trump event. It sometimes seems that they broadcast a full Trump Speech every evening! Fox has done this too. If they did this for Cruz, Carson, Fiorina, Santorum, Rubio or others, even for Jim Gilmore … their numbers would be higher too. We are being handed a candidate. Something is not right here. Trump is a smart guy and says a lot of the right things alongside things that sound horrible, like he disregards the 10th amendment as much as Obama and a lot of his record leans Progressive, not Conservative. Trump’s previous history, support, and interviews will be used successfully by Democrats against him and against the Republican majority if he is the primary winner and it just seems to me that We are being handed a primary winner. Something is not right here..

    • MIKE

      Which News Network plays his rallies in full – all or even most of the time ?
      I would like to switch from live streaming to a TV station if you are telling the truth.

      For example he had two rallies today – one in Lynchburg, VA, and another in Concord, NH.

      He usually has one, sometimes two a day, perhaps taking a day off every week.
      Thanks for the info in advance.
      – – – –
      In truth, this far in advance of the general election, Trump is the main source of interest (ratings) with most Americans.
      I would not have bothered to watch any of the debates this early if it was not for Trump.

      Most Dems wouldn’t bother if is was not for Bernie.

      • R G

        Are you a Trump supporter? The name is what I posted in the initial comment, just as it is written. It is straight forward news all day. Luckily, Verizon also added the Blaze, so I have some great programming to watch instead of the live reruns of Trump events. If Trump is the primary winner, I will have to think about whether to support him or leave the Presidential box empty like so many did for Romney. Romney understood the 10th amendment though. Trump needs to make some limited government commitments to gain conservatives and Libertarians. .

        • MIKE

          I must have missed it. You didn’t post which network carried all of Trump’s stuff.
          Which one ?

          I’m not aware of Trump violating the 10th Amendment at all. In fact he donated several hundred thousand to get GOP governors elected.

          • R G

            You didn’t miss it. You read it. That is the name. As for the 10th amendment, wHen Trump said that Obamacare must go BUT that conservatives are just going to accept that we have to take care of people, he’s talking about government run health care for some. He is talking about putting a Progressive foundation in place. Single Payer health care! The next time we have a lib Congress and President, they will have that foundation to build on just as they did with the EPA.
            If ANY government gets involved with running healthcare, it has to belong to the states AND I think that government should completely stay out of it in the states too. It is PRIVATE INDUSTRY. WHat government needs to do is make it run on the free market system like stores, mechanics, contractors or car dealers operate. Free Market. Competitive, transparent pricing. Government needs to address over the top lawsuits too. They also need to address over the top lawsuits where lawyers get most of the money and the plaintiff gets stiffed. Cap lawsuits and make sure a credible plaintiff gets at least 50%. Trump takes issues with big support and says “We’re gonna fix it” and talks about it as if the President or Federal government has the assigned power to do that. They DON’T! We don’t need to go from Obama’s over reach to Trumps! On some matters, he’s impressive. On others, he sounds Democrat principled. Even when I agree with him on issues, I understand and he doesn’t seem to … that he cannot do what he specifically promises. I will vote for someone who can do what he specifically promises and who governs by the Constitution. If Trump goes there strongly and commits, I will consider him, but right now, Cruz is a much stronger option.

          • MIKE

            Government Health Care for those in need is similar to Medicare.
            Yes he said private health care for most, government for those really in need – without the waste.

            I am not aware of any candidate who espouses a health care system like you describe.

            Based upon his testimony before the Senate Judicial System, Cruz supports legalization of 11+ million illegals, plus bringing in hundreds of thousand of foreign workers.

            In addition Cruz voted in favor of TPA
            ———————-
            Trump is probably the only one who can work with the Washington cartel, and use the bully pulpit most effectively when necessary.
            In addition, he will look for waste in government, and not hesitate to say ‘You’re fired” if appropriate. This alone will be refreshing.
            He owes his Soul to no one, unlike the other candidates who will cow tow to big donors and lobbyists.
            Trump loves to win, its his personality.

          • R G

            ” private health care for most, government for those really in need ”
            Please show me WHERE in the Constitution you would find a power assigned to the Federal government to provide health care.

            Trump supports kicking all illegals out and bringing them back legally, which makes them all eligible for citizenship and voting … for Democrats. Cruz’s plan is below, but a guest worker program dependent upon the citizen employment status in the USA is preferable to Trump’s.

            The way Trump describes health care, he says that Conservatives are just going to have to accept that we have to take care of everyone. Right? Apparently, he intends to accomplish that in a way that conservatives oppose? Right? .

            Look. I want the American government in our Constitution. We had Nixon leave us the EPA and W leave us the Medicare expansion. Those are not conservative and they are not in the Constitutionally assigned powers of the Federal government. I don’t want to see anything else added. I want to see the Federal government restored within its chains. Let the States govern the residents of the states.

            Here is what Ted Cruz puts forth on immigration;

            Border security is national security. We need to secure the border once and for all.
            We need to stop Obama’s amnesty and enforce the rule of law. And we
            need to reform legal immigration to protect American workers.

            It’s not that we don’t know how to solve illegal immigration. What
            is missing is the political will to get it done. As President, Ted Cruz
            will do what he says. He will stop illegal immigration. He will build a
            wall that works, triple border security, and put in place the
            surveillance and biometric tracking to secure the border.

            Ted Cruz will end Obama’s amnesty on day one, will end
            catch-and-release, increase deportations, stop sanctuary policies, and
            strengthen E-verify.

            In order to protect our national security and serve American
            workers, he will suspend and audit H-1B visas and halt any increase in
            legal immigration so long as American unemployment remains unacceptably
            high.

            Cruz led the fight in Congress to defeat the Gang of Eight amnesty
            bill, he has introduced strong legislation to stop illegal immigration,
            and he has outlined a detailed immigration plan to protect Americans.

            ” Cruz led the fight in Congress to defeat the Gang of Eight (RUBIO) amnesty.) – your statement.
            Without anyone’s spin – – – -based upon CRUZ’s Own Words , he either LIED before the Senate Judiciary Committee,
            or

            And this is not OLD stuff. Cruz has only been a Senator since 2013.

            CONSERVATIVE Constitutional Lawyers believe that CRUZ is NOT eligible to be President or VP based upon being born on foreign soil in foreign Country.
            LIBERAL Constitutional Lawyers believe that CRUZ is eligible to be President.

            (Cruz father was a Cuban Citizen; Cruz mother was a US Citizen; Cruz born in Canada.
            CRUZ gave up his Canadian citizenship in 2014.)
            Cruz is a US “citizen” via his mother.

            The question is whether or not he is a “natural born citizen” as required by the US Constitution to be Pres or VP.
            Since Cruz knew this would be an issue for at least a couple of years, and did nothing to clear it up prior to running for Pres.
            Is Cruz a LIBERAL when it come to the Constitution ?
            or
            Is Cruz a CONSERVATIVE when it comes to the Constitution?

  • Lili J

    ANYONE who REALLY looks into Trumps past history, actions and words WILL have to come away with the belief that Trump is NOT a true conservative and is only pandering to the conservative wave hitting America!
    Trump is:
    Pro abortion up to and including partial birth abortion!
    Pro illegal imiigration (costs less to hire illegals from a business perspective
    Positive about Hillary (has said Hillary is doing a great job
    In 2007, he praised her ability to negotiate when asked if she could successfully work out a deal with Iran.”Hillary’s always surrounded herself with very good people. I think Hillary would do a good job,”
    Trump donated to Democrats 2:1 over GOP!~
    Clintons are some of Trumps best friends.
    Donald Trump, the newest GOP entrant into the presidential race, will say just about anything to anybody.

    In May 2015 the Democratic party was THRILLED that Trump was running for GOP President! Trump has ALWAYS said he identifies with the Democrats!

    CNN)Before Donald Trump was a front-running Republican presidential candidate, the real estate mogul believed that the nation’s economy ran better when Democrats were in control and that Hillary Clinton would be a strong
    negotiator with foreign nations.

    “In many cases, I probably identify more as Democrat,” Trump told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in a 2004 interview. “It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans. Now, it shouldn’t be that way. But if you go back, I mean it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats. …But certainly we had some very good economies under Democrats, as well as Republicans. But we’ve had some pretty bad disaster under the Republicans.”

    glenn’s in full-on campaign mode against trump — pulling out all the stops to do what damage he can to trump’s vote before the iowa/nh caucuses.

    as a deal-maker/breaker trump knows how to bullsh–that’s what he’s doing on that couch. i believe whole-heartedly he sees our country in a different light and is much more serious and sober about how to govern this country than he was when bush was president — WE ALL ARE. at present, i have issues w/trump other than the ‘unknown’ way he’d make deals — this is the risk we take always in voting, and the way he talks about women/men he doesn’t like — he’s emotionally juevenile in this area and overall, it’s a style/personality issue BUT all this matters, however, compared to bho, he’s a saint on style and personality even though bho in no good world should be the standard for anything but ‘dictator.’

    i have not forgotten, and will not forget, that men w/bravado can be dangerous — we have to take ALL OF THEM at their word, too, when they say they’re going to do this or that and just ‘trust me.’

    in an ideal world CRUZ is the man.

    – – – – – – –
    Sept 18, 2008 –

    and gave the legal maximum to the Arizona senator in May.
    The same month, the members of Trump’s family — wife Melania Knauss and children Donald Jr, Ivanka and Eric — also gave McCain the maximum individual donation allowed under federal campaign finance laws.”

    Just a tiny, teensy-weensy bit of context around Glenn’s point number 14 (“14. Looking back at this period, he described himself as Obama’s “biggest cheerleader.”)

    Trump made the statement on Sean Hannity’s show in 2011. Here’s how it looked:

    “I was his biggest cheerleader,” the multibillionaire businessman told Sean Hannity on his Fox TV show Tuesday night. “If you go back three years, I’m saying, ‘Do a great job.’ I wanted him to do a great job. I still want him to do a great job.”

    »A few corrections are in order: # 1. Ted Cruz wants a wall # 2. Ted Cruz wants to immediately deport the 40% of illegals who have overstayed their visas. Over the long term, the rest of the illegals will voluntarily leave, because there won’t be any incentive for the independent illegals to stay because of Cruz’s support for “E-Verify”; the ending of “sanctuary cities”; and the end of entitlements for illegals & their children # 3. Ted Cruz wants a restriction, until further notice, on refugees from countries that are occupied by the Islamic State # 4. Ted Cruz will negotiate trade policies that will be in the best interest of the U.S., via experts in foreign policy & business, like former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton & Art Laffer & Carly Fiorina, who will not reflect Obama’s anti-American sentiments; not novices with no experience, overseas # 5. Ted Cruz have said, repeatedly, that he has no intentions of toppling Bashir al-Assad, or any other secular strongman, overseas, unless they, like Kim Jong-Un of North Korea, pose an existential threat to America & American interests # 6. Ted Cruz will address Europe’s Muslim invasion by leading the fight here on the homeland, first, thus lead by example. You want to liberate Europe, “Mr. anti-feminist”, go live in Europe # 7. Ted Cruz wants a better alliance with Israel, our closest ally, and the closest nation-state that reflects America’s Judeo-Christian values better than any nation on Earth, right now. Why would Ted Cruz want to be “chummy” with a tyrant like Putin, who’s main goal in life is to re-energize Soviet Communisim & poke his thumb in America’s eye?! # 7. No one is a better supporter or advocate for the Second Amendment than Ted Cruz, who’s been defending the 2nd Amendment in court for years, and won! # 9. Ted Cruz wants to kill “P.C.” language, as well # 10. When it come to “flip-flopping” on the issues, the ever hypocritical Trump flip-flops more than a guy whose been wearing sandals all his life; are you kidding me?! Donald Trump is the king of flip-flops! No one’s perfect, but I’ll put Ted Cruz’s voting record up against anyone currently in Washington, period! # 11 & # 12 . Ted Cruz has been answering to the people since his time in the Senate! Wake up, pal! Why do you think Cruz is so hated by the Washington Establishment?! # 13 . If you don’t thing that the Council on Foreign Relations has a target posted on Ted Cruz’s back, then you’ve not been paying attention to all of the Establishment attack dogs nipping at Ted Cruz’s heels. Donald Trump is in bed with the C.F.R. more than you’d probably want to know – sorry, just sayin! # 14. Ted Cruz will be our next President, so get used to that fact! # 15. I want a courageous, God-fearing, Constitutional Conservative who knows how to win & Ted Cruz fits that bill, perfectly; not an arrogant secularist who thinks he’s too good to ask God for forgiveness – i.e. Donald Trump # 16. & # 17. What can I tell you, Ted Cruz is the man to handle those things too. I could go on, too, “anti-feminist”, but if you can’t understand the facts I’ve laid out for you, then you’d better get therapy & wake up to reality, or stay home on Election Day. I’m hoping you’ll get on board with TED CRUZ (TedCruz.org) You’ll thank yourself, later!

    So basically you don’t care about things like free trade, you want someone just like Obama but tougher on illegal immigration and Muslims

  • sunburnspecial

    Those are all wonderful conservative things. The question is: How do you want those things achieved? First, those things can be achieved constitutionally or through an authoritarian via executive order. Trump will achieve those goals like he makes business decisions– through executive order. Welcome to history repeating itself. Welcome to Obama land again or to the Third Reich. We live in a Democratic Republic, or at least I thought we did.

  • Mark Perez

    …and you are a fool if you think Trump really believes in all of those 17 things (or even the majority of them) based on his life’s background. Have you once considered his statement (recorded on video) that if he was to ever run for POTUS that he would run as a Republican because they are fools? I think he’s found another fool in you…

  • John J

    Damn, You convinced me to vote for Trump. Thanks.
    I would say I fell, as many others, for Obama’s sweet talk and voted for him only to realize it was a mistake. So if he voted for him or not does not matter – alot of people made that mistake.

  • leonrogson

    I concur.

  • J C Keene

    Many people want these same things, but we live in a democratic republic (for now) and if Trump can issue an edict (or executive order) to make these things happen, he’s just as bad as BHO, who behaves like a dictator. I have no doubt that Trump loves this country, but some of his past actions do not bode well for a republic – using eminent domain to steal property from rightful owners is not the action of a benign leader; it’s the action of a self-serving tyrant. One of the things that set this country apart and is one of the reasons it thrived for 2+ centuries is private property ownership.
    Trump has changed his position on a number of issues: abortion, immigration, Hillary Clinton. I can live with that as I have changed my views on issues as well but mine did not change because I decided to run for national office. And I have NEVER contributed to any democrat because my values and theirs are totally out of sync. I’m not a rich, powerful person and unlike Trump, am not trying to influence politicians with my vast wealth. A man who does that can just as easily change his mind about anything and throw his money wherever he likes. Just beware that he could one day change his mind about the things you care about so deeply and leave you high and dry.
    History repeats itself and it hasn’t been all that long ago that a wolf in sheep’s clothing rose up in Europe claiming he would “save” the people from their country’s ills. That didn’t turn out so well. And no, before you go there, I am not calling Trump: Hitler. I see parallels in the methodology. Do I think Trump is a bad person? No, I don’t. I think he is a thin-skinned, arrogant, lying narcissist. His principles and mine are out of sync. Honesty and integrity in all dealings, respect for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, all the time, every time without fail. It’s a tall order, one that I doubt Trump is man enough to fill.

  • BigEd

    Good job! Good reasoning. I hope the liberals who read this will vote for what is right for America, not for all the freebies the Dems have promised them. GO TRUMP!

    Yup – same here – though I think the “illegals” are just as manipulated as the rest of us and will leave on their own once our fake economy crashes – thanks “Federal” reserve…

  • aberqueen

    FIVE reasons I won’t vote for Trump:

    1. Narcissitic, fake conservative

    2. Another man inclined to exec orders if he can’t get his way

    3. Not humble or gracious enough to accept criticism and too thin-skinned to let some things go.

    4. Slips in wise-guy, back-handed compliments

    5. Only likes people who like or agree with him publicly

  • pcantidote

    18.) You may want all that but you’ll get Hillary. Congrats.

  • Lili J

    ANYONE who REALLY looks into Trumps past history, actions and words WILL have to come away with the belief that Trump is NOT a true conservative and is only pandering to the conservative wave hitting America!

    Trump is:
    Pro abortion up to and including partial birth abortion!
    Pro illegal imiigration (costs less to hire illegals from a business perspective
    Positive about Hillary (has said Hillary is doing a great job
    In 2007, he praised her ability to negotiate when asked if she could successfully work out a deal with Iran.”Hillary’s always surrounded herself with very good people. I think Hillary would do a good job,”
    Trump donated to Democrats 2:1 over GOP!~
    Clintons are some of Trumps best friends.
    Donald Trump, the newest GOP entrant into the presidential race, will say just about anything to anybody.

    In May 2015 the Democratic party was THRILLED that Trump was running for GOP President! Trump has ALWAYS said he identifies with the Democrats!

    CNN)Before Donald Trump was a front-running Republican presidential candidate, the real estate mogul believed that the nation’s economy ran better when Democrats were in control and that Hillary Clinton would be a strong
    negotiator with foreign nations.

    “In many cases, I probably identify more as Democrat,” Trump told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in a 2004 interview. “It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans. Now, it shouldn’t be that way. But if you go back, I mean it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats. …But certainly we had some very good economies under Democrats, as well as Republicans. But we’ve had some
    pretty bad disaster under the Republicans.”

    WHOEVER votes for Trump REALLY deserves whatever they get because JUST LIKE Obama who said all the right things as a candidate and very few really dug into Obama’s past, so Obama was voted in and America is suffering the consequences, mark these words, The SAME exact thing will happen under Trump!”

  • CylonesRUS

    So you and thirty seven are ready to role the dice, on what he promises to do. Based on his morality to date and flip flops on issues, good luck with that. Gambling was never a winner, the house ultimately wins, except in the cases of Trump’s casinos, they all went bankrupt; except it didn’t hurt him, just the suckers that believed in Trump then.

  • Donnie St

    100% agree with you anti-feminist. I would go a step farther and say it is time those of us of European descent rise up and reclaim this world from the heathens. I am sure people will call me a racist, but to those who disagree I would ask to show me proof how white people aren’t superior to any other race?

  • sad4us

    I voted for someone once that I was later VERY sorry for. But to give maximum dollars to HARRY REID???? Are you kidding me??? That man has NEVER been good for any part of this country! Then when you add all the other people he gave money to like Rahm Emanuel, Ahk! Talk about dyed in the wool Communist, and all the other things he supported include nationalizing banks?…Well you go right ahead and vote for him then YOU will be the one who won’t want to admit who you voted for in 2016. Oh, and BTW, I didn’t like Bush either, and I did NOT vote for Obama!

    Trump is going to be worse than a hoax for this country and I don’t just say that because Beck says so. I thought that the instant the man threw his hat into the ring.

    C’mon folks, GET A BRAIN!!! Think past borders and strong talk! HELLO??? The man is a shill! It is going to take more than tough talk to fix the problems we have!!

    Anti-feminist, there are OTHER candidates who will do almost if not all of what you want on your list. Don’t vote for the loudest voice just because you think he isn’t afraid to do those things. He also isn’t afraid to do what he wants regardless of how it hurts you or what you and the rest of the country want. Remember that.

  • JoeDay1

    Trump is a condescending, authoritarian spoiled man-child who has never had to work hard for anything in his life. Nor has he shown leadership acumen, notwithstanding his incessant bragging about his business empire, handed to him courtesy of his NYC real estate mogul father.

    Acting like a blowhard and insulting people with whom you disagree is not leadership. Dodging a draft is not leadership. Threatening people is not leadership.

    You vote for Trump you’re voting for someone who believes property rights are really not rights at all, but government-issued privileges that can be taken upon even the most flimsy “public use” excuses. You vote for Trump, you’re voting for someone who supports higher taxes, more government; someone who doesn’t have a grasp of basic geopolitical concepts, but more importantly, doesn’t care that he doesn’t have a grasp of these concepts. His disdain for intellect, reason, and his arrogance or the principal general reasons I will not vote for him. His repeated petulant rude and dishonest behavior showing a lack of temperament and character in addition to his lack of conservative/constitutionalist bona fides are the specific reasons why I will not vote for him if he is the GOP nominee. I know I’m not alone. In the latest head-to-head poll, Trump gets trounced by Clinton by 10 points. Nominate Trump and say hello to President Hillary Rodham Clinton.

  • Robyn Healy Jenkins

    anti-feminist….I am drafting you to run for president!!!

  • disqus_mma68NTtry

    Both Great Points and Vaild Above and Below. However there is no other way to state this. Please head to theconservativetreehouse.com.

    This is an insurgency. We are the Vulgarians. We are the silent majority. Everyday Cold Anger exists. Always remember the GOPe party goal (Rubio and Bush) has never changed.

    Remove Donald Trump and Ted Cruz becomes Newt Gingrich, Ben Carson becomes Herman Cain, and GOPe candidate Rubio/Bush becomes Mitt Romney circa 2012.

    It begins by “removing Donald Trump“.

    The battle is playing out among candidates, but it ultimately for the entire construct of the Republican Party – and the beneficiaries therein.

    The GOPe, Wall Street, K-Street, and corporate U.S. interests do not want Trump any where near the presidency because he will destroy their grip on power. Those who are professional political agents of the GOPe (Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Nikki Haley types) must do the bidding of the power structures to retain their own graft.

    Two separate divisions within the GOPe: The old guard (Jeb Bush) team, and the legislative class, new guard, (Marco Rubio) team. What you saw play out tonight was the result of the professional Republican Party working earnestly to insure that only a member of their club is given the advantage.

    Donald Trump is considered an insurgent.

    Ted Cruz is considered a right-wing extremist useful to get rid of Trump.

    Need I Say More?

  • xoxozo

    Yes Glen is getting too conventional for me now…Cruz will NOT be able to get elected…The Inds. will not vote for him.
    Trump will also send a message to the establishment elites that WE CAN get rid of you if you don’t vote as you were elected to.

  • Morgan McGlynn

    Trump isn’t so great about protecting American jobs from illegal immigrants. In fact he favors expedited citizenship for illegals.
    “I would get people out and then have an expedited way of getting them back into the country so they can be legal…. A lot of these people are helping us … and sometimes it’s jobs a citizen of the United States doesn’t want to do. I want to move ’em out, and we’re going to move ’em back in and let them be legal.” – Donald Trump

  • Tank Girl

    Conservative Cruz has questionable citizenship, wants to blend Canada, America & Mexico together and dislikes any kind of liberal values, so he won’t be getting my vote! I changed from Democrat to Republican to vote for Trump who is the only man with no financial sponsors that will influence his decisions to keep the enemy out of our country and bring the jobs back to America!

  • Robert Smith

  • wandrako

    I have real problems with Trumps nastiness. His calling others names, attacking nice people because they are climbing in the polls and he feels they are a threat. He goes out to make them unelectable and that is not thinking about the country or anyone but his selfishness. He is barely a republican and hasn’t been one very long. He is buying the country and accuses others of being controlled by those who donate anything to them or help them in any way. Not my idea of an honorable man.

  • George Siter.

    You are a pretty sharp guy figuring that the anti-feminist is a male even though the picture is of a female. Your treatise is quite interesting. Cruze may want to do all those things, but he will have to fill his positions in the cabinet with donors whereas trump will fill them with Billionaire professionals who will be independent like Trump is. So you think it is a good idea to keep the cold war going with putin. That is pretty stupid of you and Cruz , if true. Trump will end the “cold war’ by getting America to do business with Russia like he will continue to do business with China only on America’s terms. All three countries will prosper like never before and there will be peace between us and both of them. Whereas Cruz and the rest talk about creating jobs, Trump already has it figured out. You can bet that he already has picked out the Secretary of Commerce, Health, FBI, Attorney General, Homeland Security and State. No need for an IRS Commissioner, EPA or Education because they will be cut back so far they will be hardly necessary. As far as Trump flip flopping: Only a fool continues in a direction that is unsuccessful. If you understand the word “repentance” then you should understand the principle of turning around from bad things and turn towards God. Unless you are willing to take on the mantle of God Himself and judge Trump’s Christianity, I suggest you cut him some slack. Few us have had the honor of meeting someone who truly is a perfect Christian, we have to judge someone by their fruit. Give Jerry Falwell of Liberty University and ask him about Donald Trump and what kind of Christian Trump is. Judge not that you be not judged. Right?

  • Spleenicus

    “Ted Cruz wants a better alliance with Israel, our closest ally”

    They sure have a funny way of showing it with the spying, the selling of secrets to China and the sinking of our warships. They’re scarcely better than the Palestinians. Ted Cruz’ blind obeisance to a foreign power is more than enough of a reason NOT to vote for him. Trump 2016!

    Well if you just now woke up about being a Democrat then you really aren’t one to listen to. And if the only reason you woke up was to vote for Trump then you really don’t have a voice with conservatives! And, like I’ve said before, we can’t all be billionaires!! Some have to depend on the American people to support them and their campaign. I have nephews who were born in Canada to US parents. There was never a question that they were American citizens. I don’t know who I plan to vote for, but I have always believed in conservative values and I have never before known or considered Trump to be conservative, until his very recent claims to conservative values.

  • leonrogson

    That is ridiculous and self indulging.

    Accidents of birth do not determine allegiance. While the situation has not come up before and should be adjudicated, it will most probably be adjudicated properly in his favor.

    We need to remember that the first dozen or so Presidents of the US were not born in the US, and in fact were voting citizens of another country. They were pretty good people last time I checked.

    Remember too that McCain was not born in the US, his case simply had already been adjudicated in the past. See http://www.newswithviews.com/Devvy/kidd342.htm for a good discussion of “natural born”.

  • barbarafromnyc

    McCain was born to two American born citizens on Panama’s soil because his father was stationed there. He was judged eligible to run. Obama was born to an American woman who was out of the country over 5 years and could not convey birthright citizenship on Obama. Obama’s father was a Kenyan who never had American citizenship. By the strictest view of our laws – you need to be a natural born citizen born to two natural born citizens. That would make Cruz, Rubio, Trump, Santorum, Jindal all ineligible. Some scholars say its enough to be born to one natural born American. So Cruz faces two challenges – 1) his father is Cuban born, 2 He was born in Canada. Since the dems filed a lawsuit, this should be settled soon. Note though that Rubio is far less qualified to run than Cruz and no one is challenging his eligibility – and he’s supposed to be the one Hillary is afraid of. This to me is more about a really tough challenger named Cruz than it is about anything else. Still this issue should be adjudicated once and for all. But with Roberts on the bench, who knows if we’ll get a real decision.

  • barbarafromnyc

    He may not be taking large contributions but who knows if he’s buying people. He’s readily admitted to buying the politicians he wants something from. You trust him, fine. I don’t, at least not yet. And I don’t like the way he insults women.

    What will a wall do?
    A wall can be climbed over, tunneled under, gone through or gone around. to be effective you need border security and a wall or fence is just ONE PART of border security. You need the barrier but it must be watched and people have to be lose enough to respond to breeches. Then if they are bad guys intending harm you have a virtually open NORTHERN border not to mention 40% of illegals are Visa Overstays.
    There is no way mexico is paying for the wall and it will be tough to get Congress to pay for it also. So yes I doubt a wall will built along the entire Southern border

And the report stated that without that voter fraud, Obama lost the election.

  • sunburnspecial

    We need a George Washington who will force congress, via legislation, to take back its powers. Over the years, during the George Bush era — not just Obama, Congress has, through passing permanent legislation, given the Executive and its many Federal Departments, permanent executive powers. Executive Orders are only constitutional if the legislation provides discretionary executive authority. Congress has given away its power to such an extent that it would take 2/3rds of Congress to stop the president– virtually a Veto Proof Congress. We will never get that. We need a President who will say to Congress, “you put the country in peril of tyranny when you cede your powers to the Executive. Trump is not that man. He is a dictator in business (not a bad thing in your own company) but he will be just as much a dictator as Barack Hussein Obama. The difference is this quote from Trump: “His executive orders were bad ones, mine will be good executive orders. We need to make America great again”. Hitler made Germany great again too and he became the leader of Germany through democratic means and became a dictator when the Bundestag and Bundesrat passed legislation giving him unlimited executive powers. We need a president who will force congress to pass the laws instead of ruling by executive orders/tyranny.

    That’s like saying wheels don’t work. Walls that are high enough won’t easily be scaled or dug under, either.

    you will never get support being so mean and judgmental…I had a brother born in France by 2 natural born American parents in the military…but not born in military hospital…he was automatically given French citizenship…when we tried to leave …the French fought my parents over taking my brother out of the country…because he was a French citizen…took 3 days of fighting…to get him released….he was an infant ..under a year. and ended up with duel citizenship..which my parents and him renounced as soon as they could…..so I also question cruz natural born status,,,I do support him …but he needs to clear this up…..I checked and he has sealed all his records…and now I ask why…and wonder if he is hiding something…like obama is…I wonder if they both used foreign student status to pay for their education,,,,after the obama fiascal…and terrible things he has done…I absolutely don’t want 4 more years of questionable leadership…we must not be blind…but be vigilant ..as our founders requested of us

    For Republicans to win back the WH we need a candidate who is not too conservative, or you won’t bring over people like me (former Democrat) or Independents that are more moderate. That’s why I believe Trump is the man and it’s evident that I’m not alone based on his rallys and polls. So if you want your vote to beat liar Hillary or socialist Bernie, keep that in mind.

    YES, I will vote for Trump.
    Your link to a Cruz web site is old news.

    Cruz was also promoting a video from 1999 – 17 years ago between Trump and Russert, and did not give the date of the video.
    Very dishonest on the part of Cruz.

    What subsidies ? And Trump is against NAFTA too and mexico is not part of China, Japan or Europe.

  • Morgan McGlynn

    I’m happy people are focusing on immigration, it’s an important issue, and I’m glad Trump brought more attention to it. I was also set to support Trump if he won the primaries, and I was livid that the party made him sign a pledge, then many said they would not support him if he’s the nominee. However, his personal attacks on Cruz, and his left like attacks are starting to make me rethink supporting him. I’m not totally out the door, but it’s getting close, he’s off the rails lately, and it has to stop soon. I know Trump is worried about losing, but he should not stoop so low, hopefully he will stop.

  • Morgan McGlynn

    I’m not at all sure “we have completely washed out the Middle of the road guys in the Republican side of the ticket”. Look at the latest polls showing Jeb moving up to 10% nationally, and in 3rd place in South Carolina. Trump should focus on the issues, and what got Trump and Cruz to the top, and stop the personal, fake, Saul Alinsky attacks. I wasn’t a trump basher to start, I liked how he got immigration to the forefront, but these kind of attacks are a real turnoff, especially based on Trump’s liberal past.

  • tinsldr2

    So you also do not like Free Trade. The way CONSERVATIVES handle those jobs moving is by reducing regulations here, lowering corporate taxes here and improving infrastructure and security
    But You and Trump say trade barriers and tariffs which are liberal ideas opposed by Reagan (who supported NAFTA) and conservative economists like Hayek. On the other hand Keynes, a liberal economist followed by Obama and Bernie Sanders support tariffs and trade barriers
    It is not the presidents role to keep companies in the USA by making it difficult to do trade with Mexico etc. it is his role to make conditions here as business friendly as possible and then if they still decide to move THAT IS THE FREE MARKET

  • tinsldr2

    That’s like saying prisons don’t need guard towers or cameras watching the wall. Any wall feasible to build can be scalled if not watched. and if geography is that remote why would it need a wall?
    In the Military they teach that an obstacle that is not watched is not an obstacle.
    Further wheels do not work by themselves. They are one part of system and not a solution to any problem by itself.

    Nothing dishonest about it. The video is from 1999, and of course people change, but his recent comments about Hillary Clinton is another history.

  • sad4us

    The second video Trump mentioned Hillary and Benghazi. It ain’t that old! If the first was in 1999 then he hasn’t changed his opinion of Hillary. Doesn’t that scare you just a little bit Mike? Cuz it scares me, especially when you add all the other things Trump has said in the past.

    Cruz campaign using a 1999 video without the date is dishonest.

    When he made the comments about Hillary she was not the Secretary of State, Benghazi traitor, e-mail liar, dirt-bag ambassador assassin, so cut him some slack. I am quite sure their personal relationship was cordial and friendly at the time. Even Putin gets treated with respect by the liar in chief.

    Large swaths of the desert are very inhospitable.

    Reagan was giving some of the best CONSERVATIVE speeches 20 years before i voted for him for President . Read his convention speech in 64. The he was a conservative governor.

    She switched to Republican but is not embracing the principles of conservatism.

  • tinsldr2

    then why are you going to pay to build a wall on those parts??? What is it’s purpose?

  • TalkingDust

    You build it all the way across just in case some clever folks decide they’ll try to use unorthodox routes or methods.

    They could try flying over the wall in ultra-lights too. The problem here is that migrants usually travel in packs and not alone.

    Add to this that the desert at night is freezing and filled with inhospitable critters and you have for very unfavorable migration conditions.

    Our southern border is a bit more than 2k miles. We need only wall about half of it off. Very, very few people have attempted entering the US from deep within the desert. You run out of water and food quickly walking in the heat of the day and the night is freezing.

    Trump and his engineers know what they’re doing. The illegal immigration here will be cut down to less than 1% when he’s in office.

  • TalkingDust

    There will be guards and there will be a wall and it doesn’t have to cover 2K miles of the border because there are natural geographical barriers and if we find they’re brave or stupid enough to come across the desert we’ll build a wall there, too.

    The cost of the wall and manning it is cheap compared to the cost of keeping them here and the cost of what they’ll do to our electorate.

  • Gabe Santiago

    You were right, the first time – I am a sharp guy. I’m also brave enough not to hide behind a woman – not in battle, not too, in social media. As for the “Cold War”, we didn’t start the last one, we just finished it. We didn’t start this one, we, under Obama, encouraged it. It would be pretty “stupid”, to use your “term”, Mr. Siter, to not realize that what Trump is offering is neither Reagan-esque “Peace Through Strength” foreign policy, nor even Kennedy-esque “Watchmen On The Wall Of World Freedom” foreign policy. It is, in fact Neville Chamberlain style blind, incompetent, and even dangerous naiveté. That is putting it charitably. I, however, will not be so charitable as to spare you the actual truth of the nature and composition of a ‘Donald Trump Foreign Policy’ – it is cowardly capitulation before the enemies of America, and our allies in the struggle to preserve civilization. Soviet & Chinese Communism has brought about the death of roughly 180 million people, throughout the second half of the 20th Century. I know Trump’s ego, and I refer to his tome, “The Art Of The Deal” coddles him in his own belief that he can make a deal with even the Devil, himself. Just remember that it did not bode well for Faust. God help us, for Trump, apparently is too proud to do so, ask God for help, should he plunge the world into a cataclysmic “deal.” Trump will be beholdin’ to those with power of material, and establishment influence – whereas Cruz, will be accountable to those who put him into office – the average American citizen who wrote checks amounting to single digits, or digits not going past the hundreds column. Just regular folks. Yes, I do question any man, brazen enough to publically claim that he ‘doesn’t think he has anything to ask God to forgive him for.’ (e.g.) I’m hoping, for the sake of this country, that the good men & women of Liberty University are sufficiently up on their Bibles to recognize a modern-day “Pharisee” – i.e. Trump. That’s right, I’m making a judgment, not out of any perceived perfection in myself as a human being, but only as a thinking man with enough common sense and knowledge of history to recognize a cult-personality of the type that ushered a nation into a catastrophe, back in the 1930’s, that forever marred a people, a nation, and an entire world. Consider these thoughts, Mr. Siter, or “siter” this election out.

  • sad4us

    I like a lot that Rubio says (except this new thing about the illegals), but not a lot of what he has done. I expect to see the same with Trump. Cruz isn’t perfect (no one is) but I think he’s our best chance. On the other hand, I still say it will be decided by the ones who control the voting machines.

  • Gabe Santiago

    After reading this tripe, Mr. Cuckservatism, you, “sir”, are the one that is lost, in anti-Semitism, anti-Jewish hatred & bigotry. You are a living relic of the worst in human deportment. Germany was sucked into the type of cult personality, mob mentality that brought about the Third Reich & are fomenting the Trump – Zombie – Mob. The German people are just human, with human weaknesses. That’s what doomed them, not because they were German. I stand by my statements about Trump being a Pharisee. I also, stand by an old Jewish proverb, which I’ll share with you, being that I don’t have to tolerate your irrationalities anymore than I have to – – “Don’t Waste Your Time Arguing With An Idiot.” -Jewish Proverb

  • Just Opinions

    I agree with you wholeheartedly, sad4us. I should have made that more clear. Sometimes in life, though, you have to take what you get. Nobody is offering us a tough, sensible, honorable man who ISN’T nasty – one who can also be elected by the general population. Republicans may vote for Cruz, but there’s no way a Democrat would vote for Cruz as so many are now doing with Trump. I hope it all works out, because I agree it’s sad to be represented by someone who can’t control his mouth and temper.

  • Just Opinions

    God doesn’t follow American elections. There’s no way God is rooting for a candidate in the election, but allowing a young athlete to have both legs to be amputated due to cancer, or the mother of 4 to be slaughtered in front of her children. God may work in “mysterious ways” but let’s not arrogantly pretend for a minute God favors any of us. On 9-11 it seems the other team was favored. Afterward, God gave GW Bush horrible advice that led to the rise of a muslim caliphate and Christian beheadings. Surely the omniscient God was aware of the innocent victims that would amass in coming years. Besides, despite all their faith and prayers, so many God-fearing nations have been given horrific governments time and time again. Do you think nobody drinking filthy tap water in Michigan has prayed their heart out, without prejudice? Of course, there’s not a single shred of evidence of God, but people don’t seem to care about that minor point.

  • MIKE

    False.

  • sad4us

    Well Just Opinions, GO BACK AND RE-READ WHAT I SAID! I said “Anyone here who believes in God” which obviously you don’t because you think God would micro-manage this world and take away all freedom of choice by FORCING everyone to do what’s right. NEWS FLASH: That was Satan’s plan, not God’s.

    Btw, YOU didn’t vote for that plan or you wouldn’t be here. 😉

  • sad4us

    Depends on why they changed over. If it’s just to cause problems then please DON’T change over. Anyone who changes affiliation simply to vote for Trump is either NOT a true conservative or are NOT paying attention to anything except what he is spouting.

    I wish that were try Sinsonta. But with so many supporting Trump I see this country in the same mess. Trump doesn’t give a rats A** about this country or you. He has ALWAYS only been interested in what’s good for Trump and the bottom line of his spread sheet. Sure he doesn’t like the direction the country is going. It isn’t good for business! HIS business.

    I can’t vote for a man (Rubio) doing his best to replace dying conservatives from the great generation with socialists (immigrants). It’s not logical. It would be outright political suicide. Trump’s is the only immigration plan that stops the flood of socialists into our nation and
    sends those we’ve already accumulated back to their socialist homes.

  • tinsldr2

    maybe they call you those names because you are?
    But simple history is enough. The Soviets were ALLIES of GERMANY when Germany declared war on the USA.
    And they were a very peace loving people who wanted to be left alone after they annexed Austria, Invaded checkslovakia , and Poland and Belgium and Holland and france and much of the mid-east
    Now my father-in-law was in the Luftwaffe during the war and all my wifes uncles fought for Germany and even were in hitler youth. So I have no animosity to the German people. But the Socialist Gov that invaded countries, enslaved and murdered innocent women and children, murdering upwards of 13 million innocent civilians based simply on ethnic backgrounds was pure evil
    Now if you believe American Values like “All men are created equal” and believe in individual liberty and individual responsibility then you can not believe in persecuting a Jewish person because of alleged actions by other Jewish people no matter how often such things were done in history. That is what conservatism is all about.
    If you say it is ok to judge someone based purely on their ethnicity , that is what the left does, and by definition makes you all those things people call you. You should not be ashamed of it but instead of saying it leads to people stating the obvious fact I am a racist and bigot etc, proudly start out with the Statement “I am a racist, and bigot and believe it is ok to persecute an entire ethnic group for the actions of some members of the group”

    Is Donald switching teams again? A while back he
    said he had been on the establishment team, but had flipped against
    them. Yesterday, he attacked Ted Cruz for daring to truthfully point out Mitch McConnell had lied to conservatives.

    That does not sound very anti-establishment to me. Defending Mitch
    McConnell is a defense of the establishment. It is also bad form.

    Cruz was right. McConnell was lying and had been lying to
    conservatives. Him pointing it out on the Senate floor was necessary to
    expose McConnell. Trump is wrong to attack him for that.

    This is just more evidence that Trump and the establishment are cozying up!

  • tinsldr2

    I wonder if you read your post before you hit send.

    You say “there will be a wall and it doesn’t have to cover 2K miles of the border” ok so it wont cover the whole border.

    Then you say ” if we find they’re brave or stupid enough to come across the desert we’ll build a wall there, too.”
    So you admit it will need to cover the whole border.
    Hilarious….

  • tinsldr2

    Thank you for proving my points.

    So we were against the countries that declared war on us in WW2. We were not on the wrong side of history but fighting a country that declared war on us first.

    Then again your comment further proves my point. You do not believe all men are created equal.. You do not take it serious because again you lump everyone in with an ethnic group and say ” the Jewish community as a whole works hard to persecute and throw people in jail for questioning the official story of WW2″

    Now of course you will readily admit that millions of Jews worldwide have no connection to any of that or even knowledge that it is happening. But because some jews push laws against free speech you think that justifies not taking all men are created equally seriously.

    Then you admit, “It was wrong for the Germans to persecute *every* Jewish individual”
    Ok we seem to agree, anti-Semitism, bigotry against blacks, anti-Christian and other forms of judging people based on ethnic or religious differences are wrong.
    But then you try and JUSTIFY anti-Semitism rising based on the actions of a few Jews. So I will ask you directly, do you think being against Jewish people or blaming jews as group for the worlds problems is ever justifiable? There is nothing subtle about it.
    You either agree it was a terrible evil and crime against humanity to round up jews and gypses and others indiscriminately and put them in crowded camps and commit mass genocide or you are a racist. that is not a trap it is a clear fact.

    lol, rooooooger that

  • sad4us

    I agree with everything except the last statement that “there is no THEY only US.” There certainly is a THEY. Unfortunately we either allowed THEM to take control of us or elected them to do that. We have been less than vigilant because it was easier to say “Oh, the elected leaders will take care of that.”

  • tinsldr2

    You just agreed that germany and their ALLY the USSR declared war on the USA and they were wrong to indiscriminately persecute all jews..

    I will always stand by conservative ideals of individuals rights, freedoms and equality And You support a Tyrannical Socialist Government so on that we wont agree.

  • Irishlitherican

    I hope you someday come to realize that God loves you and all other people. Unfortunately you appear to be a sad, pathetic person right now. This is coming from a very non-Jewish Irish Catholic.and your ideas of a great awakening sound very reminiscent of what the Nazis thoughtin the late 30s and early 40s and is completely absurd.

    No, we need the nation to make a severe right turn and undo all of the damage the leftists have done. We don’t really need your vote. Independents, Republicans and Conservatives will all vote for our nominee, so will a lot of Dems. Hillary is a socialist just as Bernie is. Its just that Bernie has the guts to admit it and Hillary doesn’t. Both want communism, both worship at the feet of Saul Alinsky. Both can drop dead as far as I’m concerned. That right turn is why you’re seeing Trump soar in the polls – Americans, true blue Americans are fed up with the left and RINO’s. We gave the House the majority and then the Senate and still they establishment gives Obama everything he wants. Not after this election! You are going to see a landslide election meant to let congress know we mean business.

  • barbarafromnyc

    I know. I said from the start that Jindal, Rubio, Cruz & Santorum all have eligibility issues and I like Cruz and Santorum. Have you noticed that no one is questioning Rubio’s eligibility? His parents were both born in Cuba. Supposedly, Hillary is afraid to go up against Rubio in debates – but no lawsuit over eligibility. Cruz is a Constitutional lawyer – by the strictest interpretation of the law (which you find outlined in the Federalist papers) both parents have to be natural born citizens for an offspring to be eligible to run for the presidency. The Senate is supposed to vet all candidates – they vetted McCain, they never vetted Obama who was not eligible (father was a Kenyan and mother was out of the country for over 5 years when Obama was born) that 5 year rule counts. Dems got their way, my side of the political fence did nothing. Approx.. 16 lawsuits, (in state courts and federal) were all dismissed, for b.s. reasons. Republicans did nothing fearing the racist label. I’d like the rule of law to apply.

    I think our heads would explode if we knew what back room nonsense and corruption goes on. On both sides.

  • tinsldr2

    I have no idea what you are saying? that it is ok to judge people based on ethnic origin?

    That the days of a conservative belief in “All men are created equal” are almost over?

    what could possibly happen that would change that any time soon?

  • leonrogson

    The situation is not that dire.
    1. Every budget bill needs to contain the provision that either house of congress can veto an interpretation of a law by any agency funded by the government, and that the veto does not need Presidential approval. Close the government, if necessary, until that is accepted.
    2. Make any government minister work at the pleasure of both the president or either house of Congress. Finding a minister in contempt of Congress requires his immediate resignation.
    3. Make any person working for the government work under a similar situation, if either house of congress finds them in contempt (invent a law if necessary) they are fired.

    This will return oversight to what it always was meant to be, and curb the Executive without cripling it.

  • leonrogson

    I agree, there are 4 Supremes who would vote against “President Cruz” so only one moderate/conservative would be needed.

  • Just Opinions

    Let’s pray that omnipotent God makes Satan vanish, since omnipotent God can uncreate as well as create.

  • sad4us

    That’s another thing Opinions. God won’t be the one to bind Satan. He won’t do for us what we can and should do for ourselves. That’s just good parenting. WE are the ones who will stop Satan and it won’t happen as long as we act like him.

    That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be strong and emphatic though, so I agree we need to be tough. But not mean. Some people have a hard time distinguishing the difference.

  • Just Opinions

    I’m sure you’re right about being strong and kind but in elections we often have to vote for the best person for the job in the absence of a 100% perfect candidate.

    How do you know so many details about God? I’ve read much of the bible and Koran and you’ve filled in a heck of a lot of blanks. Much of what you say is simply imagined. I challenge you to forget those books written by uneducated smelly unwashed bearded foul-breathed middle eastern goatherders living in caves thousands of years ago, and the men who profit off your blind and willing faith every Sunday, and ask yourself if any of that makes an ounce of sense. Satan is a fantasy. Where is he supposed to live? Under our feet? On Mars? Why are ALL these really important architects of our lives INVISIBLE and never heard from in this lifetime? Because they aren’t real. You know it.

    We are told not to question our faith for a good reason. It would have a profound impact on the wealth of religious institutions because the obvious answer is that no gods or supernatural beings exist. No fairies or leprechauns. There is zero evidence for your God, allah, or any of the Hindu gods. Zero. At election time when our children’s life’s hang in the balance let’s rely on rational thought and not be as religious-nutty as our enemies abroad.

  • sad4us

    It is impossible to convince a person that the sun is shining if he chooses to believe otherwise even if he has to shade his face from the sun while he tells you it is not there.

  • Just Opinions

    The sun is there.

  • Just Opinions

    Why does Satan stay invisible? Because God says so? He betrays God all the time. But not on this key issue.

  • Gabe Santiago

    You say that like it was a bad thing. Not everyone who worked for ‘Goldman Sachs’ was an evil person. In any event, I don’t think Mrs. Cruz works for them, anymore. Even if she did, so what? What’s your point, beside the one on your head, moron?!

  • sad4us

    Yes, the SON is there. So is his father. Don’t shut them out. Life has greater meaning and joy with them in it.

  • sad4us

    Satan doesn’t have a body. He forfeited that right when he he declared war against God. Satan is the master of deceit. How best to get people to accept sin than to convince them that there is no satan and no God, thus no sin? He even champions a little good if it will convince to accept the bad along with it.

    Which key issues does satan not promote? And why is he promoting it?

    You have read much of the Bible and the Koran. Have you read the Book Of Mormon? That fills in a lot of blanks.

  • Just Opinions

    Yes I have read the book of Mormon as well.

    With all due respect – and I respect that you are a well-meaning person and a good writer – but you believe in this stuff to a fault. If you were in Jonestown you’d happily give your own child cyanide. Luckily the people manipulating your mind are not asking for that. Yet. But in the future? Who knows. They might ask you to join a war against an opposing faith, for example. Or bring violence to an abortion clinic.

    I know it’s hard for you to have an independent thought so I will stop asking you to do so.

    I’ve read the books. I’ve listened to the sermons. I’ve considered the facts, which is that God, Satan, angels etc. exist only in people’s minds and therefore only in the imagination.

    If I wanted to I could IMAGINE God and the Son and it would be real to me. But it would not be real. Because it is not.

    You are an intelligent person and so you actually have doubt every once in a while but you shove it away because it terrifies you. I understand that. I don’t judge you on that.

    But when you decide on the leader for the free world based on what was written in a couple of books written by men who probably had schizophrenia and syphilis from their goats … I do mind.

    The most Christ-like and generous and honorable of all the candidates is Bernie Sanders, for example, and yet you probably wouldn’t give him a second thought because you are programmed like a robot.

    If there’s a tiny bit of un-brainwashed mind left in your head, just try to open it. In this lifetime. Or not. Up to you.

  • Just Opinions

    My life is full of love and joy. Don’t you worry.

  • sad4us

    Your know precious little about the LDS church leaders if you think they would ever ask the members to do violence or kill their children. I really doubt that you read the Book Of Mormon or you would not say that.

    And you know even less about me based on the assumptions you are making about my thought processes.

    So you go ahead to the “dark side” and vote for Bernie Sanders. I think I’ll stay in the light thank you :-)

    Best wishes.

  • Just Opinions

    You misunderstood.

  • Just Opinions

    My point is that you believe them so much that if a modern-day Joseph Smith came across NEW information, let’s say it’s from the angel Morino this time, and the elders tell the congregation that this new information is true. Or however religions develop their doctrines. Do you really think the Jonestown people knew anything about Jim Jones’ future koolaid murders when they were all singing hallelujah in the years before?

    Mormons are nice people. Now that I know you are Mormon I understand how you could be so brainwashed. It is quite a nice faith among the rest. The people and values are lovely. There are many shining examples from the Mormon community. But that doesn’t change the fact that y’all believe in a supernatural being that’s only true when you close your eyes, a god that’s only true when the bishop tells you about it in temple.

    All the good of God you see around you is the decent Mormon people themselves. I can tell that you are one of them. YOU are there. The evidence is loud and clear. But God is not.

    In Germany there would be many would would vote for Angela Merkel because of her religion. And that would be wrong. Not just because religion is a fabrication, but because you need to look at what the politicians will actually do here on earth, rather than the religion they were raised in.

    By the way, I’m not voting for Bernie Sanders. I think he will bring the vicious migrant crisis to the United States. And in any case, I wouldn’t tell someone how to vote. I just want to see people think for themselves. His policies are the most Christ-like. But since he’s a semite, (like Christ was) I guess that rules him out.

    Beck has lost his mind. I only hope he does not do grave damage to Ted in Iowa.

    “The Soviets were ALLIES of GERMANY when Germany declared war on the USA” — What kind of buffoon are you? German armies were on the outskirts of Moscow in December of 1941.
