Set Your “Cruz” Control

(Sound of corks popping…..idle chatter…….applause…….)

It is official!  The 2016 campaign season has begun!  (Please put your brain in neutral and sit back).

Ted Cruz has announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination before a captive audience (attendance mandatory or be fined) at Liberty University.  During his drawn out speech we got our first political slogan of the 2016 election season……”Reignite the promise of America”…….it will be the perfect slogan….why?  There is no consensus on what the term means….leave it to the imagination of the weak minded and easily manipulated.

“I believe God isn’t done with America yet,” Mr. Cruz said during a speech at Liberty University, sending a strong signal that he plans to compete for the evangelical Christians that traditionally play a big role in the GOP nomination race.

“I believe in you. I believe in the power of millions of courageous conservatives rising up to reignite the promise in America,” he said. “And that is why today I am announcing that I am running for president of the United States.”

His little speech did one thing…..made me yawn……he went on and on and we now know what he is against…..marriage equality, immigration reform, Obamacare, the IRS, Communist and finally…..LOGIC!

All that is just peachy….we know what he is against……but what is he for?  What are his alternatives to all those things?  All I heard was his support for a flat tax……then NOTHING!

Cruz is the first to announce for one reason…..he can control the media for the next couple of weeks….plus he will be the center of attention…..the spotlight is his desire and now he has it….at least for awhile…..

Keep in mind…..”Reignite The Promise Of America”………maybe he will define this soon…..but do not hold your breath…….it is what it is….a slogan……

So my friends, hold on to your genitals you are about to be beat over the head with Cruz stories for the next couple of weeks….and after all that there is one thing for certain……

He will NOT be your GOP nominee!

There is one thing to be sure of……Cruz is about himself….never about the country…….he may lose but he will NOT go away……and that is the pathetic part.

2016 Is A One Man Race

The Dems have their one woman race (at least for now) and now the GOP has there single candidate……Good Ole Boy Ted Cruz (YAWN!)……yee–ha!

If it seems like it’s already gone on for years, we are currently 596 (five hundred ninety-six) days away from the election that will determine the next president of the United States of America. But we are only one day away from the first official hat getting tossed into the 2016 ring by one of the many who been circling it, and the Houston Chronicle reports that it belongs to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Unnamed senior advisers say the Republican will announce his candidacy tomorrow, skipping right past the exploratory committee fun (looking at you, Jim Webb) and going right for the hat-tossing. More unnamed sources confirm the pending announcement to the AP, which notes Cruz will likely be soon joined by the likes of Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio. And if 2016 doesn’t work out for Cruz, he’ll keep his current day job until 2019.

Ted Cruz?  Again……YAWN!  He is a clown that will go nowhere…..but at least he is the first so the media will be all ga-ga for awhile until the next gutless wonder decides to stop playing games and announces……he must feed his hubris!  Cruz feels he must be the center of attention and he can have that…..at least for a short time….all eyes will be laser focused on Ted.

Only a foolish person would consider this person as president…….an ego-centric d/bag that will ALWAYS put self before country…….not something needed at this time….or for that matter….EVER!

Let The Fun Begin!

Clinton: Sucks Being Her

We Americans have been told that Hillary is the candidate to beat in 2016 for a year…..she has fed those speculations for the same amount of time….and now as the real campaign season approaches all the media’s hard work to make her the front runner may be for naught……

All those personal emails might be taking a toll on Hillary Clinton. A new poll of 2,128 adults shows Democrats’ support for Clinton as the Democratic nominee has fallen 15 points since mid-February. From March 10 to Tuesday, more than a third of Democrats said they believed the email controversy had injured Clinton politically, and about 45% said they’d support her, Reuters reports. Support among Democrats likely to vote in the party nominations fell to a little over 50%.

A separate poll for CNN, however, shows 57% of Americans would be happy with Clinton in the Oval Office. In that poll, 51% of respondents said Clinton’s email brouhaha was a problem, while 48% said it wasn’t a serious issue or a problem at all; 51% said she acted wrongly, while 47% said she didn’t. Half of respondents and 41% of Democrats agreed that Congress should make her testify on the issue. “If she would be more open about the situation, and show more leadership in saying what she did and why, I think it would be better,” one respondent tells Reuters.

I will be honest…I am not a supporter of Hillary for prez….it has nothing to do with gender…..I do NOT want Bubba anywhere near the White House again.  If people would be truthful then they would look at the Bubba years and see that things were NOT that great except for the wealthy….he did little …oh yeah he balanced the budget and that was on the backs of the poor……and his economic policies are what lead to the crash of 2008…..why would anyone want another Clinton in the White House?

Never fear!  She will most likely bounce back to reclaim her commanding lead in the polls….I mean look at her opponents on the Right……what is there to fear?

There is a story that could be turned around and used for the typical Right wing BS…….

Hillary Clinton, soon to announce her candidacy for president, spoke last night before the American Camp Association in New Jersey. In an effort to try to connect with her audience, she said, “We really need to have camps for adults. … None of the serious stuff. None of the life challenge stuff. More fun. I think we have a huge ‘fun deficit’ in America.”

Watch your in-box for the e-mails of total crap…….you know they will come flooding in and FOX may cover it for days……

BiBi: Predictable Little Toad

Yes the d/bag won his little election…..and he said somethings that will make the world reconsider their feelings about him….I said that once he conned the Israeli people that he would back track everything negative that he said and that he would use the American media to try and weasel out of his BS……..

With polls showing him in trouble on the eve of Israel’s election, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu disavowed his support for a two-state solution with Palestinians and immediately reversed his political fortunes. With his victory less than two days old, he has already backtracked, reports the Jerusalem Post. “I haven’t changed my policy,” he tells Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC in an interview that airs this evening, as quoted in the New York Times. “I don’t want a one-state solution. I want a sustainable, peaceful two-state solution, but for that, circumstances have to change.” Netanyahu says his comments before the election—in answer to a question, he said there would be no two-state solution under his watch—were more a reflection of how things had changed on the Palestinian side in recent years.

“I was talking about what is achievable and what is not achievable,” he said. “We have to have real negotiations with people who are committed to peace.” Critics had accused him of pandering to right-wing voters to avoid defeat. In the MSNBC interview, Netanyahu also denied that his last-minute video warning supporters that Arabs were voting “in droves” was an attempt to whip up anti-Palestinian sentiment, reports CNN. “I wasn’t trying to suppress the vote,” he said. “I was calling on our voters to come out.” The original two-state comment in particular had irritated the White House, which warned it was re-evaluating its relations with Israel.

Glad to see this demented toad is so predictable…..MSNBC should be ashamed of being used by Israel as their American PR firm…….I really thought it would be Morning Joe but Mitchell was just as feasible since she is a big Israel supporter, especially on air…..her credibility has dropped over the years…

The US will re-evaluate……seriously?  We all know where that will go….now don’t we?

Israel: FINALLY! Someone’s Listening!

I have been watching the Middle East for decades especially the Israeli-Palestinian conflict………the 1st Intifada got the Palestinians lots of international attention….the images of kids with rocks facing off against soldiers with auto rifles and tanks……then the 2nd Intifada was a bust…it started off like the first and then the militants got involved with rockets and violence and any international support the Palestinians had eroded……

I have been saying that the violence is getting the Palestinians nothing but death and sorrow….I understand the anger but throwing violence at the Israelis is doing NOTHING…….I keep saying that protests non-violent ones would do more than a rocket fired into Israel……I said that all parties on the Palestinian side should find a way to work together from many different angles….this would be more successful and limit the violence so the world would see that the Palestinians are serious about their freedoms…..

BiBi’s final words before the election were ones that could help the voting bloc win some prestige………

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it plain today on the eve of a snap election in Israel: If he wins, there will be no Palestinian state, the New York Times reports. “I think that anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state today and evacuate lands, is giving attack grounds to the radical Islam against the state of Israel,” he says in an interview with the NRG website. “Anyone who ignores this is sticking his head in the sand.” He was asked to clarify whether that meant no Palestinian state will be forged if he wins re-election, and he replied, “Correct.”

AFP depicts his comments as “a last-ditch effort to woo rightwing voters” while Netanyahu’s Likud party trails the center-left Zionist Union in polling; voting in the Israeli election starts tomorrow morning at 5am GST. Netanyahu’s stance on Palestine reverses his support for the two-state solution expressed in a 2009 speech, which Haaretz reprints here. Netanyahu said earlier this month that his 2009 position is no longer workable because of unrest in the Middle East, Bloomberg reports.

Today is the beginning of the Israeli election process….it differs from the US and it may take weeks even months before a PM is found……but this time around the Arab-Israelis are playing it smart……

My answer to racism.” This is not a typical campaign slogan for a national political party, but the Arab Joint List party (“Joint List”) in Israel is not a typical political party. And the upcoming Israeli election next Tuesday is far from a typical election, considering that this Arab-led party may very well decide who will be the next prime minister of the Jewish state.But what might truly surprise some is that the Joint List party, per many polls, is either the third most popular party in Israel or just a few points behind the left-of-center Yesh Atid party headed by Yair Lapid for that spot.The fact that the party is polling so well may lead some to ask: what is the “racism” that the Israeli Arabs (actually ethnically Palestinians) who comprise the Join List talking about with their campaign slogan? After all, Netanyahu bragged in his 2011 to Congress that of the 300 million Arabs in the Middle East, “less than one-half of one percent are truly free, and they’re all citizens of Israel!
This is a good idea….Arab-Israelis working together to form a political party to counter the crap spread by the ultra-right Zionists and haters……This is exactly the focus I proposed 25 years ago……the Israelis cannot be bombed into submission…..but they can be lead there by politics and elections……this could be the beginning of a good time for Arab-Israelis and Palestinians……..There is NOTHING to lose by using the electoral system to their advantage and everything to gain…….
This is how you beat back HATERS…even if this effort is unsuccessful…..it is a beginning and should grow and become stronger……..the US should be in the forefront of this but we all know that will not happen…….they are too far up Israel’s butt to demand justice………..thanx for listening.
