Cruz closing gap to Trump



Above is a headline that the establishment media won’t write. You can see the establishment headlines below. Ted Cruz narrowed the gap against  Trump last night, and now on March 6th has 295 delegates to Trump’s 378 (Rubio has 123).

Yet as you can see below: none of the headlines talk about the gap narrowing. Both NBC and Slate even claim that Cruz’s win is a boost for Trump. Slate’s argument is that “Cruz will have more trouble solidifying an anti-Trump coalition than Rubio” and that  “Cruz’s success may also mean that the GOP establishment, which despises the Texas senator, will not go all out to stop Trump.”

Now why would “the GOP establishment” (as Slate calls the Republican establishment) despise someone who is “off-the-charts brilliant” in the opinion of his liberal Harvard professor, famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz. Why would they despise such a person? Could it be because they are afraid that Cruz will upset some apple carts?

If so, then there must be some serious money in them apples. Of course the establishment doesn’t want to give up its patronage and privilege, that’s why they’re fighting so hard to preserve the status quo.

Cruz received twice the number of votes than Trump in Kansas last night, even though the so-called “polls” showed Cruz trailing Trump by 6% as late as Friday. So much for the polls, huh? And so much for the presstitutes in the establishment media, a dishonorable group of sellouts who almost always have a hidden agenda in whatever they do. They’ll lie about Trump and Cruz, they lied about Carson when his numbers were good. They’ll lie about any non-establishment candidate who they perceive as a threat to their ruling class masters.

Some times, they don’t lie. They just remain silent. At 8:20 A.M. this morning, there was no mention of Cruz’s big victory last night on their website. This on the website of Florida’s largest newspaper. Not a word. Everybody know’s why – the Tampa Bay Times is bought and paid for, which became quite clear when their owner accidentally released this information two years ago.

Never mind the lying because it won’t stop the winds of change from blowing. If we don’t get that change in 2016, we’ll get it in 2020. And if we don’t get it at all, then the specter of bloody unrest looms. Nobody wants it to come to that.

Finally, a shout-out to Donald Trump for calling on Rubio to drop out so that the primaries become a clear choice between Trump and Cruz. This could prove to be detrimental to Trump, and I’m not a Trump supporter. But I commend Trump for calling on Rubio to drop out because he is 100% correct on that point.

 

Trump – a Creature of the Swamp

You may heard the story that Washington D.C. was built on a swamp. It turns out that this story is an urban legend. However, it’s clear that Washington D.C. is  a swamp infested with corruption and dishonor. Our politicians suffer from malaria odipopulus, or in common parlance “a feverish and pathological hatred of the people”. Perhaps that’s why the politicians continually subvert the will of the people.

From day one, the political establishment figured that The Starship Donald would fall from orbit and burn up on re-entry into the Realpolitik atmosphereWell, they were wrong. It isn’t the first time “the elites” were completely wrong.

swampcreature.Swamp dwellers of D.C.: look yourselves  in the mirror, because YOU are to blame for what you now lament. YOU created a path for Trump by subverting the will of the people for so many years. In the end, Trump is therefore a Creature of YOUR Swamp.

Like the woman on the bed in the picture to the right, many Americans are wondering: what will happen next? Will he savage me or carry me to safety? Time will tell…

The establishment is trying to fool all of the people all of the time. That won’t work, Lincoln knew so when he famously said “you can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” We need to look no further than to Lincoln to understand the anti-establishment wave.

Yet I will look further: should Trump be elected, it wouldn’t be the first time in human history that a strongman with a five-letter name was elected to “clean things up”.  No, I’m not thinking of Hitler, although he was indeed elected. No, I’m thinking of the Roman dictator Lucius Cornelius Sulla, who actually was elected to the post as dictator by the Roman Senate.

sullaSulla (pictured on right) went about “cleaning things up” in a rather brutal way, yet managed to walk the streets without body guards once out of office.

The point is: Sulla definitely had popular support. That was a different time and place, but human nature has not changed that much in 2,000 years. You can’t subvert the will of the people forever.

In more recent times, the establishment was asleep as Jimmy Carter locked up the nomination in 1976 before Ted Kennedy could get out bed. An an aside, the world still wonders whose bed Ted Kennedy was late getting out of.

On the Republican side in that same year, Ronald Reagan came very close to taking the nomination from President Gerald Ford. My point is this: the establishment isn’t nearly as smart as they think they are. In fact, they’re fat, dumb and happy. The establishment usually is.

dailynews-frontpage-0616I’m a bit of an oddball: a non-religious supporter of Ted Cruz. Some call me stupid because of that. But even old stupid here understands that trying to insult an insult comedian won’t work.

The New York Daily News should ask itself how much sway it really has in light of the continued surge in popularity for Trump since their juvenile front page in June of 2015. Members of the Dead Tree Society, like the Daily News, can then go back to going out of business and increasing irrelevance.

I would describe Donald Trump as running a vulgar campaign. That term is meant to be descriptive, not an insult to Trump supporters, nor is it meant as a snobbish comment. And given the state of the nation, I’ll vote for a vulgarian candidate over any establishment candidate.

To be sure: I will hold my nose and cross my fingers, but at the end of the day I will vote for the machine-breaker. I will do so precisely because I hope he is a machine-breaker.
