For those of you who haven’t noticed yet, FOX news has become the Trump network. If you think you will get any news of a positive nature concerning Ted Cruz, you won’t find it there. Other places that have gone over to the dark side in a big way is The Drudge Report, and Breitbart. There comment sections are overflowing with vulgar, low info writers that can’t write a sentence the doesn’t contain at least six swear words.
Well, Cruz has got Trump and the MSM in an uproar. He had the audacity to name his VP pick. And a great pick it was. If you didn’t get to watch his announcement you should because he explains the why’s and wherefore’s and Carly’s statement at the end shouldn’t be missed. They are a perfect pair.
You hear a great deal from Trump supporters that the race is rigged against them. Taken together Trump got, when rounded off, about 55% of all the votes cast on Tuesday. However he got 72% of the delegates. Now if that were Cruz, Trump would be yelling his head off, but Cruz is saying nothing. On the whole, Trump has earned 28 percent more delegates than his pro rata share of the vote would deem appropriate.
In Delaware, Hillary got 55,950 votes to Trumps 42,472. In PA, Hillary got 918,689 to Trumps 892,702. Rhode Island–Hillary 68,761, Trump 40,020. Conn. Hillary 170,075, Trump 123,367
In every single state Hillary beat Trump, yet he says he’s the only one who can beat Hillary. Even in NY, Clinton got 1,054,083 to Trumps 524,932.
Whereas in Texas, where there were still 17 Reps in the race, Cruz got 1,239,370 to Hillary’s 935,080 Trump got 757,618. Even then Trump lost to Hillary. Think about that for the general. One more Wis. Hillary 432,767 to Cruz 531,129. Even there Ted won over Hillary and Trump lost to both with 386, 370.
The race regardless what Rush and Hannity and some other sell outs tell you is not over. The real action will take place in the ten states that vote in the coming weeks. Indiana is an especially important state, and a must win for Cruz. If Cruz wins Indiana, he is probably set to do well in remaining contest. In fact if he does well, it could cause Trump to lose up to 8 of the 10 remaining contest.
Speaking of Hannity, he seems to have his knickers in a twist because in PA the parties do their delegate ballots differently. I’m beginning to think that Trump and Hannity should get a room. And I might ask you to note that he always has Trump on the night before an election. On Monday he had Cruz for 15 mins and Trump for the remainder of the show. Cruz got tough questions, Trump got Hannity soft balls. The Dems, state who the delegate is committed to. The Rep. ballot only has the delegates name. Hannity is upset because you won’t know who is supporting who when you vote and Cruz could get more. I guess it never occurred to him that it could work in just the opposite way and Trump could benefit.
Looks like Trump will be having his day in court for his fraudulent University scheme. In fact it’s possible he’ll have to testify and all this will take place at about the same time as the national convention. He wants a jury, but the judge seems not to be obliged.
Here is Cruz announcing Carly as he VP pick. If you just want to listen to her speech it starts just after the 53 min. mark.
You might want to take a listen to CNN’s military analyst and former Lt. General M. Hurtling on his analysis of Trump’s foreign policy speech. As a former military member Trump lost him completely in the first five minutes.
