Mormons, I have come to realize through bitter experience, are self-serving control freaks. One of the gals at the hotel desk in Salt Lake (during Man In The Moon) warned me about them. But, I shrugged it off believing she had been incorrect.
She wasn’t. They are loony-toons. And Cruz’s ilk are hypocrites of the highest order.
Wow! And yet it's Trump trying to gin up a candidate to take Cruz' Senate seat. Gotta say, Trump sounds infinitely more "vengeful" than Cruz.

This loon better hurry. Tick-tock, tick-tock… First off, he’s on the wrongest website (Go Fund Me) for art funding.
But, while we’re on the subject of CrowdFunding, the reason I canceled my Blaze membership after about 2 years was due to a snub by Beck and his minions after I contacted them all (more than once) for a little support on a feature film project (I wrote the script and emptied my meager savings account shooting the video pitch) and promoted on Kickstarter (“Saint Christopher: Loose Canon!”)
This, after I financially supported his broadcast, donated to Mercury One, flew to Salt Lake for the Man In The Moon, bought his book, shook his hand, defended and promoted him on social media against attacks from the left. A $5 donation from any one of them would have been awesome. Each of them knows who they are and who I am, by my business card, personally handed to each of them in Salt Lake.
When I received zero support from Beck and Company I could not understand it. Not until I came to realize that Beck was a rabid Ted Cruz supporter and I supported The Donald (this back in Sept 2015.) And I had never considered that Mormons are as crazed as Sharia Muslims over religion. Who’d a thunk a comedy about Saint Christopher was to be shunned.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a sniveler. “Saint Christopher: Loose Canon!” will be realized. And, unlike the Beck’s and Cruz’s in the world, I take my lumps and move on.

What is it today? Crack, or magic mushrooms?

Agreed. It’s become an asylum for wayward Christians filled with hate.
 July 21, 2016 at 12:23am
That’s it? What stands out is Hillary’s witches cackle and nothing else.
 July 21, 2016 at 12:18am
What did Jesus say? Serving only yourself is it’s own reward.
Ted Cruz just ****** himself. To set up for an endorsement and use the platform to serve-up his own selfish revenge was political suicide and religious hypocrisy.
NO ONE in Washington will ever trust him again. My guess, he plans to retire.
 July 21, 2016 at 12:12am
Of course he would have. He stated throughout the primary that he would. So did PETTY TEDDY… what a sniveling, childish hypocrite… no wonder he hasn’t a single friend in Congress…. unless PETTY TEDDY retires, he’ll be cleaning toilets in the Capitol building for the rest of his career.
Of course he would have is not a statement you can apply to trump.
Yall already admitted you don't know what he will do.
so you are saying that if you were Cruz, and Trump called you “lying Ted” throughout the caucuses and said the things he said about your family, that you would still get up on a stage and say, “I endorse Mr. Trump”????? I would hope, for the sake of your family, that you would do the exact same thing Cruz did!!
Yes, john .. Cruz proved to a very wide audience that he is only about himself and cares nothing for our poor abused country! If the words to support or compliment Mr Trump were too hard for him to say, fine .. stay home as did many other also-rans. But no, Cruz responded to Trump's invitation to speak with arrogance. The very reason he is so distrusted in the Senate and the reason so many people said Cruz is "creepy" ...
[-1] July 21, 2016 at 12:09am
This room is an asylum. What next, will Petty Teddy campaign for Hillary in Texas…
[-2] July 21, 2016 at 12:07am
I was inspired when Cruz took the stage tonight and the audience gave him a standing ovation.
But, Ted betrayed himself as the petty little man he is. No wonder he has’t a single friend in Congress.
I’ll assume his smug revenge was his retirement moment, because otherwise he will be spend his career cleaning toilets in the Capitol building.

Alpha Males pick alpha males to delegate authority. Trump alpha, Pence, alpha. Go read a book and learn.

FOR 1 REASON:
The only “rigged” vote was inside the Trump campaign.
Somehow, the local politicos in WA State managed to pick their delegate choices, their “pals”, without informing ANY of us who’ve fervently supported Trump for the past year!
We were kept in the dark until after the local conventions voted. Received our pre-dated invite 2 days AFTER the vote.
The results: Of the 44 delegates available, Cruz has 41 pledged. Trump has 3.
That said, the 3 Clowns chosen will get to kiss the Donald’s ring and fortify their own political “insider” status, and now, expect we-the-puppits to knock on doors and man the phones for them.
Not happening with me.
What a disgrace to be betrayed by my own candidate before he’s even elected.
God Bless You Johninportlandia, Welcome Aboard!!!!!
Cruz isn't perfect, but i think he is our best chance, and he sure isn't
pulling the stunts you described. Thank You for posting that, i am hoping
to see more like it.
Not sure if this pertains to your invite, but the campaign sent a notice or memo to DC instead of WA state.
You were never for Trump.
Oh no! Trump's campaign isn't trying to buy me off with political favors. You'll fit in perfectly with Cruz.
Next time try English.
 April 23, 2016 at 12:06am
btw: If I could take back my donations to Trump, I would. But alas, learning is always expensive.
Any conservative/libertarian that wants policy-meat to base their decision, should take the time to watch this interview /segment in CNBC. The concept of "stable currency" -vs "currency war" alone should be be a primer well worth the listen. But, there's so much more...
portoffstarboard: Mr. Trump never asked for my money. I just gave him my Florida vote and a space for a "Trump" sign out front on my estate. Works for me.
 April 22, 2016 at 11:59pm
Attention Cruz supporters!
Senator Cruz, once again, has my ear. I’m not saying I will vote for him in the Washington State Primary, May 24th. But I am saying that I have dumped Trump – for one single reason: As I see it, the Trump campaign, via local Washington State politicos, kept us all in the dark during the delegate convention process.
Last night, I attended the first, the very first, GOP 4 Trump meet up in Vancouver, WA. It was there I discovered the delegate conventions across the state had already taken place. The results: Cruz supporters grabbed 41 delegate pledges. Local hacks for Trump scrounged only 3, for the simple reason no one was there to vote for them because these self-serving clowns cut us out of the process!
We all received our exciting emails – inviting us to the delegate process – 2 days after the process had ended, as if they thought we wouldn’t catch the pre-dating. A pathetic attempt to fool their own supporters into believing we missed the call to action.
At least Don Benton’s 3 Clowns will get to kiss Trump’s ass on May 7th when he comes-a-callin’. That’s May 7th, at NE 179th St & NE 72nd Ave, Prairie, WA.
All of this seems odd to me, considering I’ve contacted the Trump campaign, repeatedly, over the last eleven months in search of information on Washington State’s primary.
Not sure, yet, who gets my vote. It will be Cruz, the Libertarian candidate, or maybe just write-in my own name in protest. It will not be Trump.
There are 5.2 million registered democrats and 2.5 million registered republicans in New York. How is there even a remote possibility that NY is in play?
 March 25, 2016 at 4:27am
Let’s compare Mr. Trump to Obama:
Mr. Trump is the ultimate capitalist. Obama is the ultimate socialist welfare state hack.
Mr. Trump focuses on border and ISIS. Obama dances the Tango after Belgium attack.
Mr. Trump has created thousands of jobs for Americans. Obama cost us at least 50 million jobs.
Mr. Trump has self-funded his primary campaign. Obama takes cash from anyone.
Mr. Trump is a true outsider. Obama is an ideologue.
Now, let’s compare Ted Cruz with Obama:
Obama never held a job in his life. Ted has always gone for the “government” check.
Obama is sketchy about his religion. Ted omits the tongue-talking part of his religion.
Obama is a slick Harvard lawyer. Ted is a slick Harvard lawyer.
Obama sucks up the PAC cash. Ted sucks up the PAC cash.
Obama is a true DC insider. Ted is a true DC insider – as far back as Bush1.
Now, perhaps you can answer a question for me. Why would Glenn Beck support a presidential candidate who graduated from Princeton’s “Woodrow Wilson School of International Affairs?”
Beck’s on record celebrating Wilson’d death every year. Calls him a “racist monster!” Yet, TED CRUZ graduated with a BA from that very monsters’ school of thought, or ideology as the case may be.
Johninportiandia — Spot on, mate.
Outside of what you mentioned above, the thing for me is that I know Cruz is more consistently conservative than Trump. However, Trump is more truthful than Cruz in that he doesn’t hide what he is.
Cruz dances around the issues with fancy lawyer speak, Trump does not. In other words, if Trump supported a liberal cause, he comes right out and tells you. Cruz will not.
I’m voting for the transparency.
THAT was disingenuous. Your comparisons were not fair and some were not even valid points.
Trump is a "Crony-Capitalist". Is that what you mean? He pays lobbyists and lawyers to garner grant money not intended for him and to get favorable rulings from government officials. His use of emminent domain is un-American in my opnion.
Cruz IS a lawyer. That is true, but does it mean he is morally corrupt? He trained in the Law because that is what the government has written must be done if you what to work with and within the Law. Is there any other way to become a public defender, or attorney general, or solicitor general? I'm just asking. Why throw the baby out with the bathwater? You are trying to impugn him, but your "evidence" is scant at best.
Do police officers just "go for the government check"? What about our military?
Trump is a Narcissistic Sociopath, Obama is a Narcissistic Sociopath, both follow the "ends justify the means" marxist strategy,, THEY LIE TO YOU..
Trump focuses on border and isis? Just because he talks a good game means nothing. Trump will place his so called Capitalist ways before he close the borders as he has shown by his companies in other counties. Trump self funded campaign? yes until he files his 2016 tax's then he will seek a write off. Trump created thousands of jobs? We have not seen any facts on this but if we are going to talk of the jobs he created then we all so must talk of all the jobs Trump lost do to his Bankruptcies and failed Business.
Wow, so now everyone that graduates from Harvard and Yale are guilty by association.
That's some weapons grade stupid there.
Trump created "thousands of jobs", really? Most of the positions in his fancy resorts are filled with H2B visa workers, low skilled people from other countries that are covered under different labor laws than Americans. How successful is he. He has failed in all businesses that would have benefited the ordinary citizen (casino, mortgage broker, magazine etc) but has succeeded in high priced luxury condos only the upper elites can afford and resorts that require 6 figure amounts to be paid just to join. And the everyday ordinary American thinks the guy feels his pain. He can't even see you little people from his high rise gold gilded penthouse apartment.
Your analysis is flawed. I posted a version of this message earlier but somehow it vanished.
How do you pick a candidate to vote for?
You look at their background and their support of the constitution. Do I have a problem with Ted Cruz (TC) being an attorney? Nope. Do I have a problem with him coming out of Harvard? Nope. Do I have a problem with him working for the Bush's? Nope.
Why? Because I have seen what he has said he would do on the campaign trail for Senator and I have seen him keep those promises after he was elected to office.
Here are two examples. I've seen him take on Bush(GW) regarding the Jose Ernesto Medellin murder case. He has taken on ObamaCare in order to repeal it.
This is why you would trust a person. Does the person do what they said they would do? Ted does. The whole lying Ted Cruz thing is so stupid. Stated by Trump and repeated by the media and a bunch of dolts that refuse to think logically.
Trump is lying on the campaign trail about campaign trail promises. He is lied about offering to pay the legal fees of his supporters that attack protesters. He lied that Ted Cruz lied about Ben Carson dropping out of the race. He did not. And Trump (and Rubio) did the same thing they claimed Ted had done.
Trump supporters are flushing this country down the toilet and waiving the American flag as they do it.
"May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
"That’s some weapons grade stupid there."
That's up there with "dump per square foot."
Not sure why Rumpsters keep saying Cruz is a slick lawyer. Cruz talks about the Constitution and small government. Are you really struggling to understand that? Maybe you are too simple to vote.
John, this is good analogy. You need to do same on Hitlery.
You are a troll. Get your butt back to Oregon, stay there and keep your mouth shut.
Wow, I was starting to believe that all the common-sense patriotic Americans had been pushed out of Portland, or ran screaming in frustration like I did. Good to know that there's at least one sensible person left there...

The ====TrumpTrain2016!==== tosses the “R” picks up an “I” and barrels down the track =>=>=> When it gets hot enough in the GOProgressive trenches, many a big shot will defect to Mr. Trump, for 2 reasons:
1. The GOProgresssive Party is screwed without the TrumpTrain. Period.
2. Win, lose or draw, the TrumpTrain is a one way ticket to the WH. No one disembarks. There is no reverse.
 March 16, 2016 at 2:48am
Megyn “the crazy” volunteered, in the first debate, to be the Media’s point man. She threw the first punch and has been the instigator ever since.
Mr. Trump thinks ahead of the curve because he is the curve. He knows Megyn will lose it on some tight corner, eventually.
 March 12, 2016 at 1:21am
TED CRUZ DEFENDS DOMESTIC-TERRORIST BILL AYRES!!! …. Blames Mr. Trump.
AYRES & HIS MOB WERE IN THE VIOLENT MIX TODAY IN CHICAGO…
Who could support a Crazy Pentecostal Dominionist like Ted Cruz?????
 March 12, 2016 at 12:47am
Crazy Ted just accidentally admitted he is responsible for the shooting of the Pastor in Idaho following a Crazy Ted Talk-In-Tongues Rally.
Okay, Ted. Fess-up or burn in hell you sick bastard.
Not in the least bit, you moron. The Pastor didn't provoke violence against anybody in his sermon that day. In fact, I'm willing to bet that the person that attacked him was either a Trump or Bernie supporter that disagreed with the fact the pastor supported Cruz to begin with.
That pastor was shot because he was Godly and supported a man who loves Christ. Its called persecution of Christians.
