  • Cruz denies sending tweet urging conservatives to leave GOP

    NY Post ^ | October 16, 2016 | 11:27pm | Marisa Schultz and David K. Li
    WASHINGTON – Ted Cruz appeared to declare the Donald Trump/Hillary Clinton race all but over—before taking that call back. The Texas Senator and runner up to the GOP nomination tweeted Sunday: “Why conservatives will need a new party if/when Hillary wins.” The conservative firebrand last month reluctantly endorsed The Donald– despite holding a grudge against the billionaire for insulting his wife’s appearance and speculating his father was involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. His public declaration against the GOP nominee drew immediate attention and the tweet was mysteriously deleted later Sunday. Cruz appeared to be linking to a...

    Ted Cruz is considering rescinding his reluctant endorsement of Donald Trump, according to multiple reports. A Ted Cruz aide confirmed the talk to ABC News, and a source gave similar intel to CNN. BuzzFeed News reported that the Cruz camp said there's "nothing to share right now." Trump earned a hard-fought endorsement from Cruz about two weeks ago. The Texas senator said the Supreme Court and other policy issues superseded his own personal disagreements with Trump. In the wake of leaked audio of Trump's lewd comments about women, Cruz tweeted Friday that the remarks were "disturbing and inappropriate."

    He never explicitly said "vote for Donald Trump," but Texas Sen. Ted Cruz did sit in front of a wall of Trump campaign posters as he urged voters to come out to "support freedom, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights." A video, originally shot Wednesday by the Dallas Morning News, shows a glistening Cruz leaving a voicemail while at a Republican phone bank in Texas. It's all of 28 seconds, but long enough to leave its mark.

    Donald Trump wants to know how many Christian conservatives are backing him in Iowa. The Republican presidential nominee asked those attending a Wednesday afternoon rally in Council Bluffs to raise their hands "if you're not a Christian conservative." He noticed "a couple people" raising their hands. He asked the crowd, "Should we keep them in the room?" He answered himself, "Yes, I think so." Many Iowa Republicans are Christian conservatives. The thrice married Trump has faced tough questions of his own about his devotion to Christian values....

    “I mean, give me a break, Ted, go ahead and endorse [Donald Trump]. You lost, he won. I think Cruz is a terrific guy, strict constitutionalist. He’s not the most bubbly guy I’ve ever run across, if you understand what I’m saying. But, I love that dude. All the guys who lost, and gals, they all need to swallow their pride and say, ‘The people — the Republican party has said Donald Trump is the man we want in the White House,'” Robertson stated.

    This election is about--and ONLY about--SAVING AMERICA Senator Ted Cruz, booed right off the stage at last night’s Republican National Convention, did not stick the knife in Donald Trump’s back as charged. Whether he realizes it or not, whether it was intentional or not, the Texas senator firmly stuck the shiv in America’s back. By letting his ego lead him to Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena he wrote the script for Hillary Clinton’s Big Night at the Democratic National Convention. Clinton will seize the Cruz RNC moment to advance her trajectory as Obama’s 3rd term in the White House. We can...

    And a weird sop to the racial-grievance industry CLEVELAND—Ted Cruz did the Republican Party no favors last night when he pointedly refused to endorse GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, breaking a promise he and other rival candidates made at the outset of the primary campaign last year. Cruz also made what appeared to be some kind of overture to race baiters by mentioning aspiring cop-killer Alton Sterling who was recently shot dead by Baton Rouge police during an altercation. It seemed very odd, but maybe in retrospect it shouldn’t. After all, Cruz went along with leftists and a few other...

    Palin, whose endorsement of Cruz’s long-shot Senate bid in 2012 was credited by Cruz himself as the reason why he won the race that launched his national political career, gave the following statement to Breitbart after delegates booed Cruz off the stage at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night: Turns out Ted Cruz’s partner, Carly Fiorina, had a more graceful exit from the political stage than he had. Cruz’s broken pledge to support the will of the people tonight was one of those career-ending “read my lips” moments. I guarantee American voters took notice and felt more unsettling confirmation...

    RNC, day 3. Here’s my rundown.Laura Ingraham – I like to call her “Dr. Laura” butt will restrain from doing so for fear of driving more  potential new readers away due to “having my head up my butt” – was great. Loved the way she went after the the skinny jeans, man-bun wearing pajama boys.I’m still a bit cheezed about her cheezing in on my gig, butt I’m going to be classy and set that aside for the good of the party. Besides, I think she’d make an awesome replacement for Megyn.Ted Cruz disappointed. I better leave it at that....
