Ted Cruz endorses Trump; Glenn Beck ‘sad’; Heidi goes back to Goldman Sachs

What a commentary on the peculiar times in which we live that a Republican endorsing a fellow Republican is big news.

Yesterday, Ted Cruz, who was a bitter rival of Donald Trump during the GOP primaries, announced his endorsement of Trump in a post on his Facebook page:

This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election. […]

After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.

I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word.

Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary. […]

Our country is in crisis. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way.

Cruz then gave additional reasons for why he will vote for Trump, foremost of which are these two:

  1. The Supreme Court: “For anyone concerned about the Bill of Rights — free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment — the Court hangs in the balance…. We are only one justice away from losing our most basic rights, and the next president will appoint as many as four new justices. We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices ‘in the mold of [Antonin] Scalia.’ […]today the Trump campaign provided that, releasing a very strong list of potential Supreme Court nominees — including Sen. Mike Lee, who would make an extraordinary justice — and making an explicit commitment to nominate only from that list. This commitment matters, and it provides a serious reason for voters to choose to support Trump.”
  2. Obamacare: “The failed healthcare law is hurting millions of Americans. If Republicans hold Congress, leadership has committed to passing legislation repealing Obamacare. Clinton, we know beyond a shadow of doubt, would veto that legislation. Trump has said he would sign it.”

Cruz concluded with these words:

“If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country. My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that.”

By Cruz’s own yardstick, his No. 1 fan Glenn Beck is without conscience.

After Cruz announced his endorsement of Trump, Beck wrote in a rambling post on Facebook:

“Profoundly sad day for me. Disappointment does not begin to describe my feelings. Maybe it is time to go to the mountains for a while.”

glenn-beck-reacts-to-ted-cruz-endorsing-trumpDuring the GOP primaries, Beck had touted Ted Cruz as the fulfillment of Mormon end-days prophecy, and told evangelical Christians that if they don’t vote for Cruz, they’re not listening to God.

After Cruz lost the primaries, Beck went off the deep end: He was on suicide watch and hinted at assassinating Trump.

Honestly, I’m surprised Glenn Beck still has listeners.

Wall Street donations to 2016 presidential candidates

Meanwhile, now that Ted Cruz is out of the presidential race, he doesn’t have to pretend to be one of the little people any longer. His wife is back at Goldman Sachs.

Dakin Campbell reports for Bloomberg, Sept. 23, 2016, that “Heidi Cruz, who left Goldman Sachs Group Inc. last year to help her husband Ted Cruz in his quest for the Republican presidential nomination, is returning to the bank in a newly created role in the Houston office.

According to a memo to staff Friday from Tucker York, Goldman Sach’s global head of private-wealth management, Heidi Cruz will concentrate on helping to win new clients, focusing on “strategic relationships,” whatever that means.

Why Andrew Stein, a lifelong Democrat & former NY state assemblyman, will vote for Trump

Andrew Stein (born Andrew J. Finkelstein), 71, is a former New York State Assemblyman, had served on the New York City Council, and was a Manhattan Borough President. Stein’s father, Jerry Finkelstein, was the multi-millionaire publisher of the New York Law Journal, among other publications. Andrew shortened his last name to Stein when he entered politics.

A lifelong Democrat, Stein explains in an op/ed for the Wall Street Journal why he’ll be voting for Donald Trump and not Hillary Clinton because the Democratic Party has become “the party of the elites and moneyed class”.

Party Loyalty Can’t Make Me Vote for Clinton

By Andrew Stein • Wall St. Journal • Sept. 23, 2016

I have been steeped in the Democratic Party all my life. My father, Jerry, was a New York City Democratic chairman and power broker, and I grew up in and around the Democratic Party. When I was a young man, former senators and Democratic presidential and vice-presidential nominees Hubert Humphrey and Estes Kefauver stayed at my apartment and we would proudly discuss the great traditions of the Democratic Party.

My father was a pallbearer at St. Patrick’s for Bobby Kennedy’s funeral. When I was young, Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy were (and remain) my political heroes. Four years ago, former New York Gov. and liberal lion Mario Cuomo spoke at my father’s funeral. I think his son, current Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is a very effective leader.

I was elected five times to the New York state Assembly as a Democrat. In 1977, I beat David Dinkins and Robert Wagner Jr. in the election for borough president of Manhattan, and then was elected twice as City Council president.

With this background it is very hard for me not to support the Democratic nominee for president this year. But I believe my party has become the party of the elites and moneyed class and has deserted its historic mission as the party of the working class and disadvantaged.

Given my level of discomfort with the current leftist orientation of the Democratic Party, I am now supporting Republican nominee Donald Trump for president. I urge my fellow Democrats to vote for Mr. Trump. I have known him since the early 1970s and have seen his deep concern for people, and how effective he has been while working on behalf of the average citizen.

Donald Trump is no racist. On the contrary, he offers the best hope for rebuilding our inner cities and creating better education and jobs for those trapped in poverty and lacking hope. When a hurricane devastated Puerto Rico in 1984, I asked Mr. Trump to provide a 727 airliner to bring critical supplies to the island. He did so and without publicity. I asked him to rebuild the Wollman Skating Rink in Central Park because the city couldn’t complete it in 10 years. Mr. Trump did it in under six months and under budget.

While he has made some controversial and provocative statements, I strongly believe he will bring needed change and vitality to our nation and shake up our political system, which is in a state of crisis. He is for strong pro-growth policies like reducing the marginal and corporate tax rates and eliminating thousands of job-killing and business-stifling regulations, the biggest of which is ObamaCare.

Mr. Trump is also for rebuilding the military, which has been decimated by Obama’s dangerous cuts and sequestration. He is a strong supporter of Israel and will not abandon our allies in the Mideast and around the world. Unlike Hillary Clinton, he will not allow tens of thousands of immigrants who cannot be vetted properly to come to the U.S.

Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is the personification of the establishment and status quo. She voted for the war in Iraq and supported the Iran nuclear deal, two of the worst, and most-dangerous, mistakes in American foreign policy during my lifetime.

Everywhere in the world America’s position is far worse now thanks in large measure to her actions as secretary of state. The whole saga of her private unsecure emails and server and the appearance of massive pay-for-play at the Clinton Foundation are also profoundly troubling.

Her domestic record is as bad as her international one. When Mrs. Clinton was elected to the Senate, she promised to create 200,000 new jobs in upstate New York. When she left office in January 2009, the region had a net loss of 8,000 jobs. Now she promises to create 10 million new jobs in the nation. Why should we believe that she will do that, based on her failed record in New York state?

Sometimes a break with your own party is compelled by events. This is not to say it is an easy decision politically or personally. It can be wrenching. In 1973 I was appointed by Gov. Nelson Rockefeller to be chairman of a commission to investigate patient abuse and massive Medicaid fraud in the New York state nursing-home industry—which was extensively covered by the press. The nursing homeowners were protected by the Democratic leadership in the state Assembly. I had to fight those leaders in my own party to get the needed reforms passed.

As President Kennedy once said to his trusted speechwriter and confidante Arthur Schlesinger Jr., “Sometimes party loyalty asks too much.” This is the case in this election. I believe Donald Trump will make a great president and I ask my fellow Democrats to vote for him. The future of the nation may very well depend on it.

BETRAYAL: Republican former Pres. George H.W. Bush will vote for Hillary Clinton

Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend is the former Lt. Governor of Maryland and the daughter of the late Robert “Bobby” Kennedy.

On Monday, Sept. 19, 2016, Townsend posted on her Facebook page a picture of herself shaking the hand of former Republican president George Herbert Walker Bush, with this caption: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”

kathleen-hartingon-facebook

Townsend told Politico in a telephone interview that she had met with Bush in Maine earlier that day, where he made his preference known that he was voting for Hillary. Townsend said, “That’s what he said.”

A spokesman for Bush did not deny it. He told ABC News:

“The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”

Remember my post 7 months ago on whether Bush had made a throat-slashing gesture at Trump at the GOP debate in Houston, Texas on Feb. 25, 2016?

At the time, I gave Bush the benefit of doubt.

I no longer do.

By the way, there’s a rumor that Barbara Bush is the (unacknowledged) daughter of British occultist satanist Aleister Crowley, which would make George W. Bush Crowley’s grandson.

Hillary cackles like a witch about taking a neurological test, then tells another bald-faced lie

Several physicians have spoken out and offered their professional assessment of Hillary’s health. Some say she has Parkinson’s disease — a neurological disease that is progressive, i.e., it’s incurable and only gets worse.

None other than Obama’s former physician, Dr. David Scheiner, has said that Hillary should have neurological testing. Referring to Hillary’s well-known concussion in December 2012, after which a brain scan showed she had a blood clot, for which she continues to be treated with Coumadin, a blood-thinner or anticoagulant, Dr. Scheiner said:

“I think she should have had a neurological examination, a thorough neurological examination in 2016. We know what happens to football players who have had concussions, how they begin to lose some of their cognitive ability….”

On Sept. 21, 2016, while visiting Orlando, Florida, Hillary was interviewed by ABC Action News anchor Sarina Fazan.

At the 3:02 mark in the video below, the reporter brought up Hillary collapsing at the 9/11 memorial ceremony:

“Last week, you were remembering 9/11. I want to talk about your health for a moment. It was startling for many Americans to see you get into that van. I certainly hope you’re feeling better. I wanted to ask you that I know you provided documents from your doctors saying that you are fit to be the president of the United States. Some doctors have said because of your age, as well as your opponent’s age, that you could be at higher risk for dementia or even Alzheimer’s and have suggested that you take some neuro-cognitive test.”

At which, Hillary cackled, like a Hollywood central-casting witch (3:33 mark).

After her mocking cackling subsided, Hillary in effect refused to take a neurological test when she said:

“I am very sorry I got pneumonia; I am very glad that antibiotics took care of it and that’s behind us now. I have met the standard that everybody running for president has met in terms of releasing information about my health.”

Beginning at the 6:44 mark, the reporter asked Hillary about the “scandals” in her past, especially her using an unsecured email server to conduct her work as secretary of state.

Here’s Hillary bald-faced lie (7:19 mark):

“If people are concerned about information, I’ve had some of the most secret information that anybody in government could have. I was involved in the small group advising President Obama about whether or not to go after [Osama] bin Laden. I am very committed to and careful with classified information, and I think that anybody who looks at my whole record knows that.”

What a load of horse manure.

To begin, Hillary had said she didn’t know that ‘C’ stood for ‘classified’ in emails, assuming that we actually believe her ludicrous claim.

The fact is the email that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accessed using her unsecured email server contained not just classified information but some of America’s top top secrets, as well as the names of CIA spies, which means she had put their lives in jeopardy. See:

The fact is she was so careless with classified information that she didn’t even bother to have a password on her email account.

The facile way in which this woman lies is pathological and downright scary.

By the way, in the video above, Hillary’s eyes are clearly blue. So how come her eyes are brown in the video below?
