Sen. Ted Cruz clicked ‘like’ on incest-porn video

Yesterday, September 11, 2017, the 16th anniversary of 9-11, on his @tedcruz Twitter account, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) clicked “like” on a tweet of an incest-porn video posted by @SexuallPosts.

The video depicted a woman spying on and masturbating to a man fornicating her step-daughter. The step-mother then interrupted the couple and demanded that she be included as a threesome.

After netizens discovered Cruz’s “like”, it was deleted from Cruz’s Twitter account, but not before someone had saved it to archive, which you can see for yourself here, if you choose to do so.

SexuallPosts is already exploiting Cruz’s “like”, tweeting “Thanks for watching ted!” and using Cruz in its advertisement:

New York Daily Post reports:

“It’s unclear whether [Cruz] the married father of two personally liked the tweet or if a staffer using his account did the deed….

Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier quickly addressed the senator’s late night Twitter activity and said ‘the offensive tweet posted [sic] on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter.’”

Frazier can’t even get her story straight — Cruz did not “post” the porn video; he clicked “like” on the video.

Note that Frazier did not claim that someone had hacked Cruz’s Twitter account. That means either Cruz or a staffer clicked “like” on the porn video. If no staffer is fired in the next few days, it means Cruz is the idiot — because only an idiot would watch a porn video on his public Twitter account and then click “like”.

During the Republican primaries last year, Glenn Beck the Mormon touted Ted Cruz as the fulfillment of Mormon end-days prophecy, and actually threatened evangelical Christians that “If you don’t vote for Cruz, you’re not listening to God“.

Remember this from one of Cruz’s campaign stops last year? Just look at the look of revulsion on the face of his 7-year-old daughter Caroline turning away from his kiss.

Update (Sept. 14):

On CNN’s Jake Tapper’s show, Ted Cruz issued a denial, saying that an unnamed “staffer” had “accidentally” clicked “like” on the porn video (source: The Daily Beast):

“Look, we had a staffer who accidentally hit the wrong button and it was a screw-up. I will say, Twitter went crazy with it, it became trending. As soon as we found out about it, we pulled it down.”

Hey, Cruz. Did the “staffer” also “accidentally” access the SexuallPosts porn video? The only way that video could be accessed is either your Twitter account “follows” SexuallPosts, or the “staffer” went on SexuallPosts’ Twitter page.

Same ol’ shtick: Michael Moore disses Trump, Hillary Clinton in new broadway show

response to Michael Moore

Must suck to be so bitter that your whole career revolves around criticism of a country and its policies that has made you filthy rich. Ain’t America grand!

From MSN: Michael Moore has Trump on the brain, and the Oscar-winning documentarian and liberal scourge unleashed his animus on the new president on Friday in the first public performance of his one-man Broadway debut, “The Terms of My Surrender.”

“I refuse to live in a country where Donald Trump is the president — and I’m not leaving,” Moore said near the end of his two-hour plus show, which was part autobiography, part counseling session to like-minded urban liberals and part political rally and call to action.

At one point, Moore teased a run for president in 2020, with a typically satirical edge. “I really will shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue,” Moore said, before adding in reference to Trump’s efforts to avoid military service in Vietnam, “He got five deferments because he wouldn’t shoot anyone.”

He offered campaign pledges that mixed the silly (“free HBO for all”) with the edgy (“If elected, there will be no low-flow showerheads; I don’t want to feel like I’m being peed on by a 12-year-old in the presidential suite of the Moscow Hilton”).

He offered praise for Sen. John McCain’s return to Washington after brain surgery and voting to block the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare. “Give the other Republican senators that surgery!” he quipped.

Moore did not spare Democrats — and Hillary Clinton in particular — from his jabs. “We have to admit that Trump outsmarted us,” Moore said. “He was crazy enough to know where the state of Wisconsin is — and to go there.”

He even made a joke suggesting the former Secretary of State was a lesbian — which he quickly tried to re-contextualize. He noted that a man arrested for attempting to blow up Moore’s Michigan home had kept a diary with a kill list that started with Moore and included Janet Reno, Rosie O’Donnell and Hillary Clinton.

“How did I get on the lesbian list?” he quipped, then added, “By the way, with Hillary, that’s the way the right wing talks about her.” (For the record, Bill Clinton-era Attorney General Janet Reno, who died in 2016, also denied that she was gay or bisexual.)

Moore, who recently launched a website dubbed TrumpiLeaks intended as a clearinghouse for whistleblowers and a new nonfiction film for The Weinstein Company titled “Fahrenheit 11/9” (for the date of Trump’s election win last fall), said that he’s offered a standing invitation to Trump to attend his show — a box seat with stars-and-stripes bunting in front of it sat empty through the performance.

He also shared that he and Trump shared an agent — CAA’s Ari Emmanuel — and claimed to have overheard a phone call from Trump to Emmanuel in which the “Celebrity Apprentice” star suggested announcing a run for president as a gambit to get a better salary for the NBC reality show — or a counter-offer from another network.

“He just found out that NBC was paying the hosts of other reality shows more than him, like Gwen Stefani on ‘The Voice,'” Moore claimed. According to Moore, Trump told his agent: “I’ve been thinking about running for president. The networks would see how hugely popular I am.”

“Even when he was running, didn’t you feel, Does he want this job?” Moore asked. “Does he want to live in a majority-black city? The penthouse of the White House is the second floor.”

In one of his most provocative bits, Moore played an audio clip from 2005 in which conservative radio host Glenn Beck speculated about killing Moore: “I’m wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it.”

Moore then pretended to leave a voicemail message for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo using Beck’s scripted threat virtually word for word. “Could I just call any public person with these threats the way Glenn Beck did?” he asked. “I don’t think I would get away with it.”

The show, directed by Michael Mayer (“Spring Awakening”) and produced by IMG Original Content and Carole Shorenstein Hays, will have an official opening on August 10 and run for 12 weeks. 101 Production is exec producing.

Moore’s credits include directing “Fahrenheit 9/11,” the highest-grossing documentary of all time, as well as “Bowling for Columbine,” which earned an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Other films include “Sicko,” “Roger & Me” and “Where to Invade Next.”

He also created the television series “TV Nation” and “The Awful Truth,” and has written eight books which have all made the best-seller list.

Last October, Moore dropped a film about Trump titled “Michael Moore in TrumpLand” which screened for the first time in New York City’s IFC Center that month.

Glenn Beck says electing Hillary Clinton is ‘moral’ and ‘ethical’

It’s one thing for Glenn Beck to oppose Donald Trump by supporting Ted Cruz in the GOP primaries, telling Evangelicals that if they don’t vote for Cruz, they’re not being true Christians — which is quite an act of chutzpah on Beck’s part since he is a lapsed Christian who’s turned Mormon.

But now — take your pick of metaphors — Beck has really jumped the shark, jumped off the cliff, gone cuckoo for cocoa-puffs.

Glenn Beck on Fox News, January 2014

Glenn Beck on Fox News, January 2014

On October 8, 2016, this is what Glenn Beck wrote on his Facebook page:

“Every person, each of us must decide what is a bridge too far.

Mike Lee has obviously reached that point, where the moral compromise his party is asking him to make is simply beyond what is acceptable.

It is not acceptable to ask a moral, dignified man to cast his vote to help elect an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity.

If the consequence of standing against Trump and for principles is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it. At least it is a moral, ethical choice.

If she is elected, the world does not end…. Once elected, Hillary can be fought. Her tactics are blatant and juvenile, and battling her by means of political and procedural maneuvering or through the media , through public marches and online articles, all of that will be moral, worthy of man of principal.

Her nominees can be blocked, her proposed laws voted down.

The alternative does not offer a moral person the same opportunity. If one helps to elect an immoral man to the highest office, then one is merely validating his immorality, lewdness, and depravity.”

Note that Beck calls Trump immoral, lewd, and depraved, but not Hillary.

And yet in May of this year, this is what Beck wrote about Hillary:

“Hillary Clinton, the woman many consider to be the odds-on favorite to become the next president of the United States, believes that in order to bring about the kind of abortion-on-demand world she envisions, ‘deep-seated cultural codes and religious beliefs have to be changed.’ Additionally, she believes that ‘the unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.’”

5 months later, however, Glenn Beck says electing the same pro-abortion-on-demand Hillary is “moral” and “ethical”. So much for Beck being pro-life. It’s all meaningless talk on his part, for the man really has neither principles nor abiding beliefs.

After his “election of Hillary … is a moral, ethical choice” remark was picked up by bloggers, Beck denies everything. His words were misunderstood, taken out of context! Woe is me!

He says on his blog on Oct. 11, 2016:

“It has been widely reported I am either endorsing or voting for Hillary Clinton as president, and I stated that voting for Hillary is the ‘the moral and ethical’ choice. Let me be clear (and thankfully this is an easy one to dispel): None of this is true.

I am firmly against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as potential presidents of the United States of America. I believe that neither candidate has the values, decency or principles to be the leader of the free world. And for the millionth time (though I presume not the last), I reject the notion of a binary choice. I will not vote for the ‘lesser of two evils.’

My Facebook post included in these reports is very clear:

‘If the consequence of standing against Trump and for principles is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it. At least it is a moral, ethical choice.’

The ‘moral, ethical’ reference is not directed towards Hillary Clinton, but rather my decision to stand for and on my principles against the candidacy of Donald Trump. If other people share this principle and hence, Clinton is elected, at least my choice of sticking to my principles is, to me, moral and ethical.”

No cigar, Beck. You can’t wiggle out of this one.

In your original Facebook comment, you clearly and unambiguously said that if, by opposing Trump (“standing against Trump”), “the consequence . . . is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton” as POTUS, “so be it,” because “At least it is a moral, ethical choice”.

Undertaking a behavior with full deliberation and knowing full well that doing so will result in the election of a deeply immoral, lewd, and depraved woman to the most powerful seat in America and the world, cannot in any sense be “moral” or “ethical”.

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.

Glenn Beck suspended by SiriusXM radio for hinting at Trump assassination

The implosion, in full public view, of Glenn Beck continues . . . .

In 2010, Beck called Americans who question Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president “dumb birthers“.

During the primaries, Beck touted Ted Cruz as America’s savior — the fulfillment of Mormon end-days prophecy. Beck claimed to know the mind of God, threatening Evangelical Christians that if they didn’t vote for Cruz, they’re not listening to God. Beck even threatened to commit suicide if Cruz lost the pivotal Indiana GOP primary.

All of which led to Alex Jones, in a tearful, apocalyptic rant, calling Beck “a prancing demon”.

Now, prompted by what appears to be Beck’s approval to assassinate Donald Trump, the radio broadcasting company SiriusXM has suspended The Glenn Beck Program from its Patriot radio channel for a week, and is reconsidering the program’s place “in our lineup going forward.”

Glenn Beck on Fox News, January 2014

Glenn Beck on Fox News, January 2014

Breitbart reports, May 31, 2016, that SiriusXM has suspended Glenn Beck and assigned David Webb to temporarily take over Beck’s 9AM to noon Eastern time slot on SiriusXM’s Patriot Channel 125.

SiriusXM issued the following statement:

SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone. For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values.

Brad ThorThe suspension is in response to an interview Beck did with fiction author Brad Thor on May 25, in which Thor likened Trump to a South American-style dictator who, if elected, would cause an “extinction-level event” for the United States. Thor said that Congress would not be able to remove Trump from office by “legal means” through impeachment.

Thor then hinted at assassinating Trump as a solution. Admitting that “I’m about the suggest something very bad,” he asked Beck’s radio audience “what patriot will step up and do that” in the event Trump oversteps his Constitutional restraints.

Beck agreed with Thor’s assessment.

Here is the exchange:

THOR: He [Trump] is a danger to America and I got to ask you a question and this is serious and this could ring down incredible heat on me because I’m about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer.

With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as president.

If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.

BECK: I would agree with you on that and I don’t think you actually have the voices we’ve been talking about and we’ve been talking about this off-air for a while. I think the voices like ours go away. I don’t think we are allowed – especially if things, and I believe the economy is going to go to crap, even if Jesus was in office. It’s going to naturally reset. It has to.

Read the rest of the exchange here.

After receiving criticism for what he and Thor said, Beck defended himself. You can read the full transcript of his defense here.

Glenn Beck on suicide watch?

Glenn Beck on Fox News, January 2014

Glenn Beck on Fox News, January 2014

He’d threatened to commit suicide if his darling Ted Cruz lost the Indiana GOP primary.

He’s reportedly laying off staff of The Blaze.

Not to mention before all this, he was saying over-the-top phantasmagorical things about Cruz being the savior, and claiming to know God’s will, ordering evangelical Christians to vote for Cruz or they’ll go to hell.

Seriously, does anyone know what is wrong with Glenn Beck?
