A good reason to not vote for Ted Cruz. Good reasons to vote for Donald Trump

May 11, 2016

Here are some excerpts from a speech Carly Fiorina gave on September 29, 2001 (15 days after 9/11/2001). This is the person who Ted Cruz picked to be his vice president running mate.

There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.

It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts. Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different creeds and ethnic origins.

One of its languages became the universal language of much of the world, the bridge between the peoples of a hundred lands. Its armies were made up of people of many nationalities, and its military protection allowed a degree of peace and prosperity that had never been known. The reach of this civilization’s commerce extended from Latin America to China, and everywhere in between.

And this civilization was driven more than anything, by invention. Its architects designed buildings that defied gravity. Its mathematicians created the algebra and algorithms that would enable the building of computers, and the creation of encryption. Its doctors examined the human body, and found new cures for disease. Its astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way for space travel and exploration.

Its writers created thousands of stories. Stories of courage, romance and magic. Its poets wrote of love, when others before them were too steeped in fear to think of such things.

When other nations were afraid of ideas, this civilization thrived on them, and kept them alive. When censors threatened to wipe out knowledge from past civilizations, this civilization kept the knowledge alive, and passed it on to others.

While modern Western civilization shares many of these traits, the civilization I’m talking about was the Islamic world from the year 800 to 1600, which included the Ottoman Empire and the courts of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo, and enlightened rulers like Suleiman the Magnificent.

In my view, anyone who  spouts off such mindless drivel and out right lies regarding Islam is either delusional or utterly stupid. Islam has always, since it’s founding been a violent ideology which demands complete submission.

If Muslims have contributed so much to the betterment of mankind where are all the Muslim Nobel Prize winners? There has been 12 (twelve) total!

Compare that to Jewish Nobel Prize winners … 193 (one hundred ninety three)  HERE

And there are a hell of a lot more Muslims than Jews in the world. Islam provides nothing but darkness, misery, death and destruction every where it’s allowed to fester.

Ted Cruz choosing Ms. Fiorina as his running mate really put the skids on my favorable opinion of him. That’s okay, I think we have a winner in Donald Trump.

David Horowitz wrote an excellent piece in response to the anti-Trump #NEVER TRUMP crowd. Take a minute to read this great article.

The “Never Trump” Pouters

It’s understandable when Democrats slander Trump, but it’s disgraceful when Republicans echo them.


The conservatives who have declared war on the primary victor are displaying a myopia that could be deadly in November when Trump will lead Republicans against a party that has divided the country, destroyed its borders, empowered its enemies and put 93 million Americans into dependency on the state. This reckless disregard for consequences is matched only by a blindness to what has made Trump the presumptive nominee. When he entered the Republican primaries a year ago Trump was given no chance of surviving even the first contest let alone becoming the Republican nominee. That was the view of all the experts, and especially those experts with the best records of prediction.

Trump – who had never held political office and had no experience in any political job – faced a field of sixteen tested political leaders, including nine governors and five senators from major states. Most of his political opponents were conservatives. During the primaries several hundred million dollars were spent in negative campaign ads – nastier and more personal than in any Republican primary in memory. At least 60,000 of those ads were aimed at Trump, attacking him as a fraud, a corporate predator, a not-so-closet liberal, an ally of Hillary Clinton, indistinguishable from Barack Obama, an ignoramus, and too crass to be president (Bill Clinton anyone?).

These negative ads were directed at Republican primary voters, a constituency well to the right of the party. These primary voters are a constituency that may be said to represent the heart of the conservative movement in America, and are generally more politically engaged and informed than most Republican voters. Trump won their support. He won by millions of votes – more votes from this conservative heartland than any Republican in primary history. To describe Trump as ignorant – as so many beltway intellectuals have – is merely to privilege book knowledge over real world knowledge, not an especially wise way to judge political leaders.

A chorus of detractors has attempted to dismiss Trump’s political victory as representing a mere plurality of primary voters, but how many candidates have won outright majorities among a field of seventeen, or five or even three? When the Republican primary contest was actually reduced to three, Trump beat the “true conservative,” Ted Cruz, with more than fifty percent of the votes. He did this in blue states and red states, and in virtually all precincts and among all Republican demographics. He clinched the nomination by beating Cruz with an outright majority in conservative Indiana.

In opposing the clear choice of the Republican primary electorate the “Never Trump” crowd is simply displaying their contempt for the most politically active Republican voters. This contempt was dramatically displayed during a CNN segment with Trump’s spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, and Bill Kristol, the self-appointed guru of a Third Party movement whose only result can be to split the Republican ticket and provide Hillary with her best shot at the presidency. Pierson urged Kristol to help unify the Party behind its presumptive nominee. Kristol grinned and answered her: “You want leaders to become followers.” Could there be a more arrogant response? By what authority does Bill Kristol regard himself as a leader? Trump has the confidence of millions of highly committed and generally conservative Republican voters. That makes him a leader. Who does Bill Kristol lead except a coterie of inside-the-beltway foreign policy interventionists, who supported the fiasco in Libya that opened the door to al-Qaeda and ISIS?

      Hark the herald angels sing. I’ll have to ask #1,#2,#3 what they did without Unit. #4 and me been singing now going on 35 years. I swear it’s true to goodness,…although not always singing, I’m sure. 🙂
      I still on good terms with all…
      Swing low, sweet chariot
      Coming for to carry me home,
      Swing low, sweet chariot,
      Coming for to carry me home.

      I looked over Jordan, and what did I see
      Coming for to carry me home?
      A band of angels coming after me,
      Coming for to carry me home.

      That hope and change. 🙂

    The only Ideological system of politics that masks itself in religious rhetoric and kills everyone who refuses to join it or who openly disagrees with it. The Bible fortells the coming of a religion that chops off Christian heads and we are in the last days after all are we not? Chop, chop chicken head … Islami salami come and all are dead. Better dead than read and better be taking the Lord’s delicious bread ….nuff said.

    Wow she had me going for a while with who she was talking about. WTH? Ted picked a doozy there. Was she going for the CAIR vote? And we’ve seen what these loonies have done trying to work with the Mo-Bro network. Oh, that went real well.

    I originally thought that Cruz chose Fiorina as VP running mate because he wanted the more of the women’s vote. But that speech by her was delusional, to say the least, especially at that time in history!

    Steve, you might want to check out my latest post. It is entitled Is America Under Judgment?

    I was prompted to write it after replying to your comment to Donna in “The Trump Wars 2” thread.

    It appears to me that even though Cruz was our first choice as the Republican nominee, his choice of Carly F. was truly a huge mistake! 😦
