Cruz should have been the nominee. Last time we had a conservative the dems had their asses handed to them ( Reagan) yet instead of promoting conservatism we pick moderates in hopes of getting independents. It never works. We need to stop being stupid and finally elect conservatives as Rep nominee instead of Rinos trump included with his big govt policies
Ummm....he could have still been picked but your boy dropped out on his own free will. Lol...now that does not make any sense.
We didn't build that! The eRINOs created Trump by not living up to their campaign promises twice, 2010, 2014 and their 2012 failure of moderate philosophy. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Fool me a 3rd time...well,,,you figure it out.
@Witchywitch - having read many of your posts, most of what you say does not make any sense. Why should this post of yours be any different?
I completely agree. Ted Cruz should've been our nominee. He would have won the White House in a landslide like never before. I am still saddened by him dropping out. But now it's between Hillary Clinton (100% Suicide of our nation) and Donald Trump (Possibly not suicide) I don't like to gamble, but I'll certainly take my chances with Trump. But like I've said, Ted Cruz would've been fantastic. Maybe he would've been even greater than Ronald Reagan.
@no - I agree with you that RINOs created the atmosphere that got Donald the nomination. However, I don't understand the logic of your "Fool me" comments. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, and I'll vote Democrat Orange? That doesn't seem to make sense.
Cruz? Oh, you mean Tricksy Ted. The guy that could not even win ten states in the conservative primary against a New York liberal?
Seriously dude, stop eating those sour grapes. Trump’s ridiculous insults were nothing compared to what the Clinton political dark arts ninjas would have done to Cruz and, unlike the primary, only half the general election voters are republicans. Cruz would have been sliced and diced and deep fried by now.
Cruz could only have beat Hillary in three states, Utah, Texas, and Wyoming, the most red states in the nation. He would not even be in the running anywhere else by now. I don’t like Trump, but he is the only person standing between Lady Death, the Queen of Hell and Mother of Lies, and the nuclear launch codes and the keys to the Supreme Court.
Stop bitching and man up before Hillary steals your guns, your rights and your job.

This year has been an absolute disaster. Let’s run through the list of all the republican candidates that would be killing Clinton and I wouldn’t have to have my mouth in horror as the presidency is handed over to the worst woman on America.
Cruz- crush Hillary
Kasich- crush Hillary
Rubio- crush Hillary
Carson- crush Hillary
Paul- crush Hillary
Walker- crush Hillary
Perry- crush Hillary
Bush- would even be doing better than Hillary
Literally any single republican would crush Hillary. Yet we pick the one guy who is a complete and total dumbass. I mean this is just beyond embarrassing. Trump has to pull independents and he is choking over and over because of his inability to keep his foot from mouth and massive ego. He knows nothing. So many times he could have crushed Hillary during the debate like abortion he could have forced to recognize that an unborn baby is human life but didn’t because he is a dumbass. Cruz would be turning Hillary into a stain on the side of the road.
DLV: Well, there's only 14 million voters that disagreed with you. Do you feel lonely? You should...By the way, from your post don't be a tease. You NEVER picked Trump, so cut the "we". Thanks!
“U.S. vote authorities warned to be alert to Russian hacks faking fraud – officials”
Fri Oct 21, 2016 12:20am Reuters
Reporting this news story is a sure sign of desperation and a confirmation that the democrats are attempting to hack, steal the election through voting fraud. The democrats always telegraph their plans by accusing their opponents of doing the same thing.
O’Keefe and Wikileaks confirm.
Every single one of them a politician except Carson who supports Trump. MSM, Hollywood, public education system, the dossier the Democrats have on all of them – Crush All of those you listed. Only Trump has the voice to challenge that onslaught.
That's all water under the bridge. Cut the navel gazing. The die has been cast. Vote Trump!
Do you actually believe the media?
"In general our strategic goal with people who have become conservative activists is not to convert them—that isn’t going to happen. It is to demoralize them—to ‘deactivate’ them. We need to deflate their enthusiasm, to make them lose their ardor and above all their self-confidence…[A] way to demoralize conservative activists is to surround them with the echo chamber of our positions and assumptions. We need to make them feel that they are not mainstream, to make them feel isolated… We must isolate them ideologically…[and] use the progressive echo chamber…By defeating them and isolating them ideologically, we demoralize conservative activists directly. Then they begin to quarrel among themselves or blame each other for defeat in isolation, and that demoralizes them further."
You are depressed because you are made to be. You guys keep listening to this propaganda and you forget you can do something about it. I suggest you activate... Tell the truth about crap like this...
Facebook, Twitter, email. You don't need the media anymore. I suggest you take control of your destiny. You voice is more powerful today than in any other time in the history of this country.
And you know what? ITS WORKING
They are finally answering for the corruption they have furthered. Feel EMPOWERED NOT HOPELESS
Watching Trump crush Cruz and sending all of Cruz’s whiny supporters crying was good enough for me. What a bunch of babies.
And NO, Cruz wouldn't be doing worth a crap right now. Just cuz you say so, doesn't make it so.
Well, you are obviously entitled to your opinion.
Maybe you should consider the fact that the Clintons would have smeared the Pope himself if he were elegible to run. They would have either found the skeletons in the closet or created them like they did with Trump.
But further, your contention is that the Repubs and smarter than everyone else most virtuous independents and undecideds would have united.
McCain didn’t do it. Romney didn’t do it. Oh, but anyone of THOSE PEOPLE could do it because you have knowledge everyone else does not.
The ineffective and enabling Republican party and its historically bad candidates created Trump.by pizzing off a fed up public.
At least Dems stick together. They know the value of a lib SCOTUS and amnesty ensuring a permanent lib Fed Govt. AND POTUS.
Sorry DLV. Any Republican candidate would have been smeared by the media and Dems. The Establisment would be anti-Cruz. Trump is a fighter, we need a fighter.
LOL if they couldn’t even win the primary how the hell do you think they would rally the base to vote for them in the general??
Obviously Hellary has more campaign contributions she is selling the country to the highest bidder Russia, Qatar and all foreign countries are included.
Hey Putin would you like to buy our strategic stockpile of Uranium? No problem just put the cash into Hillary Clinton's account.
What's so difficult to understand?
And besides all this proves is that Trump was honest and truthful, Trump is for real, he really is not going to be bound to a bunch of puppeteering big time donors just like he promised.
So what is Glenn's problem with that? I don't get it.
Also running a small campaign is the epitome of being a small government guy, isn't this what Glenn Beck used to believe in? Or was that charlatanism also?
Pence- crush Hillary
You live in a fantasy world. Think about it, a New York liberal crushed all of the candidates you named in a voting contest restricted to conservative voters. He didn't just beat them, he smoked them all and all the voters were conservatives, or at least republicans, in most states.
If Trump kicked the crap out of them all in the conservative fight, they would have been blown away like a fart in a windstorm when you threw liberal voters in at the general election against the other New York liberal.
Stop with the sour grapes already, your argument doesn't even make sense, unless you are wearing a Blaze tinfoil hat. Sadly, all of the candidates in the republican primary were pathetic, that is why even Trump was able to make them look like burnt marshmallows.
DLV---thank you! also grow up and vote wisely
You mean the establishment as it has always been. People are tired of labels with the same outcome no matter who wins. You my friend are a deceived fool...
I can clearly see where Hildebeest spent her money. Every other commercial is one of hers. Over the last two months, I may have seen an ad for TheRump twice, maybe three times. Is her donating it to The Beast? Could this be why he doesn't want anyone to see his tax papers.
And don't forget to thank the MSM. They have a lot to do with trump rising to the top.
Trumpers think they are the ones that picked the candidate, but it appears they have been duped and the media is really the ones that got Trump to become the candidate. This is the biggest con on the American people that I can remember and I ain't no spring chicken,
Well I agree....all polls showed that Hillary would beat Trump but NOOOO his supporters buried their heads in the sand and said it can't happen and we don't need you Trump haters we can win without you hell Trump even said it.........I put this whole mess on Trump supporters this is all on them...
DLV, yes, what this country needs is another carreer politician that can continue to fix all that is wrong with the country. They have been doing so well so why change course now?
June 25, 2016, redstate.com, Michael Harrington:
After a lot of work I have finished my math calculations. A simple effort will show that from 2000 to 2008 there was a change in Primary votes of 10-12 million. Ten million more Republicans and 12 million less Democrats. But this is child’s play. Getting deeper, examining States with close polling prior to the registration requirements, States with a clear winner in polls prior to registration change requirements, and you can set patterns.
Using 2000 and 2008 as baselines, the conclusion was staggering. Trump only got about 3.3 million Republican Votes. The rest are Democrats, approximately 12 million of them.
I also found via my studies by going back to 1992 that this behavior is not new, in fact even when there is a tight contest about 5% will “strategically vote” in the Republican Party primary/caucus. Even more disturbing is that it appears that there may be even a 5% not normally detectable, of Republicans who only vote Democrat. Aka plants that we always knew existed.
In some circumstances the vote differences were so extreme that it defies explanation.
You TRUMPERS are such short minded FOOLS. In the primaries democrats were able to vote in republican primaries is quite a few states. Did you ever think they were picking the fool that they wanted their candidate to run against in the general? Remember TRUMP him self said he didn't need my vote to win. He was going to get them from the Democrat side. So all of you that are following SEAN HANNITY's example and explain what trump really means when he speaks like a fool go ahead. I am voting 3rd party.
@DLV You sir are full fledged tard. There is a REASON why conservatives picked Trump. He was and is speaking our language. Now, granted, I voted for Cruz, but Trump was saying it like it is. I found myself sayin: YEAH! Far more to the things that Trump said rather than Cruz. Conservatives chose him because they are sick of polticians mis-representing them.
Paul Ryan, who made himself out to be such a Tea Party candidate ended up being a RINO of EPIC proportions. All I can say is: Fuсk that dude. Sniveling little chicken legged democrat in disguise that he ended up being.
Also, I know you want Cruz to have been a great candidate, but he would have been far too christian conservative for independents. He would have lost badly to Hillary. Kasich, as much as I detest him would have done well but not have been conservative at all.
This is the new America. Either accept it or revolt, because there are more libtards out there than conservatives. And as time goes by and new generations come in they are more and more libtarded. Good luck folks... i mean for when the lights go out. It is going to be ugly... and sad.
but these rhinos policy are same as democrats.. makes no differnce.... except for cruz
Sad to say, but at this point I would happily vote for Bush. Not so much for Kasich, if he had left when Rubio left, or earlier, Cruz would likely be nominee. Since he turned down VP, I will never understand why he stayed in unless the GOPe promised him something special just to be sure it wasn't Cruz.
Many of us spoke up and the crazy people dumped on us. It never stopped me but after Cruz got outI new we were stuck with him so what else do you do, you keep supporting him and hope for the best. Yes he has no class in many ways but Trump has a good heart and if he could have presented himself in another light, this man could have become a great President. I pray for a miracle and hope for the best. We all know what we put up with the last 8 years. Some know better than others, Vets have suffered dearly, liberals have murdered millions of infants, Obama has bankrupted the Nation and we are more divided now than before the sixties however we need to stick it out and find ways to get through this mess if it's for the worst. I wish that all of us who feel for this country from a conservative point of view that we can fins our way and live peacefully and pray for the best. We don't have choices if this goes sour.
225 million is a small investment for Trump to make, given the payback he will receive from the Clinto Foundation when he starts building casinos in Haiti and Cuba... Gotta pay to play. If you think for one second that he has not been in on this mess from the very beginning, you need to seek professional help.
Dream on, DLV...
no one really likes any of those canidates because they are all international marxists in disguise
trump is a nationalist like the founding fathers..were no matter what you neo conservative marxist revisionists state
How old are you, DLV? If you’ve followed politics for the last 30 years you would realize that the Clinton’s have a well-oiled machine. They can run over anyone. Put the most conservative out there and each of their lives will be surgically routed for any mishaps. If they can’t find much on them then they’ll go work their family down, business contacts, childhood friends, the list goes on. The reality is we all have things we’re not proud of and the Clinton machine knows how to make a parade out of it. I don’t take much stock in media types that say Trump is his own worst enemy and could be much further ahead. Hind sight is usually 20/20 and the great many of the people you list have experienced the regret of the moment they said or did something. And Clinton and gang know how to work it in their favor.
And you would have expected and received support for any of those other candidates from Trump,supporters. So where’s you support for the Rubublican candidate now or are you satisfied with being a F.ing Hillary supporter now DLV?
I think you underestimate the Clinton's they would of found a way to win at any cost.
They were the most worried about Rubio because they viewed him as a Hispanic Obama.
Walker and Perry would not crush Hillary. I think Bush would be where Trump is in the polls without the enthusiasm behind him.
All the people you listed were viewed as your everyday politicians, people are becoming tired of that, I don't blame the people who voted Trump in, I blame the GOP for being a do nothing group of baby's who never challenged Obama. GOP leadership warned that not only would we lose our chance of regaining the Senate but we would lose the House following the 2013 shutdown. Instead, they had a historic victory in the Senate and gained 12 seats in the House. They took it for granted and didn't fight at all.
Youre welcome! But if your list of people couldnt beat Trump, they would have been crushed by Hillary. She doesnt play fair if you bavent heard. But go ahead and stay in fantasy land if it helps you sleep at night.
You are welcome; I'm sick of the 'establishment'; Kasich is an idiot; Cruz reneged on his 'pledge'; Rubio is for amnesty; Walker and Perry couldn't compete; JEB was the 'anointed one' that was to be 'shoved down our throats' via 'The Roadmap'; Dr. Carson; nice guy but no President.
Trump is the ONLY one who fought back; didn't play 'nice' while the Dems raved them with all the stuff they do every four years.....WIN or LOSE, the Republican Party is DONE!
Trump's Chumps contended that they wanted a fighter, somebody that would have told the establishment what was exactly on his mind. and claim he was the only one to stand up to the establishment....I call BS on that. there were two that stood up to the establishment and both were equally hated for good reason.
But one would have easily fulfilled Trump's Chumps thirst for brash and harsh verbiage, backed with intellect: Rand Paul.
So why didn't they go along with Rand Paul? Of all the big name Senators that were running in the race, Paul had no qualms whatsoever to tell the media where to stick it, and where Clinton could bury her head at...or pull it out from. There's a few reasons why the media did what they could to shut Paul out of the conversation. One of the bigger ones is Paul was brash enough to stand up against them on their own shows and shut them down with facts and slap them around with smack talk. Go back and watch those interviews, he had the majority of the interviewees squirming in their seats. they couldn't stand Rand.
And all Rand wanted from the populace was to take a stand beside him.
I only supported two men running for President in my lifetime, and Paul was the 2nd. The first being Cruz.
 October 15, 2016 at 3:56pm
Sleazy all that is fine and true. That’s not what I’m talking about. Yes I’d have the surgeon operate on my loved one and yes I’d vote for trump. That said the sickening stuff of constantly defending trump no matter what needs to stop. For instance, when trump said paraphrasing of course “I wouldn’t sexually assault her, she isn’t got enough” the man is an idiot. I don’t know if all these allegations are true but considering we have trump on tape saying these things about sexually assaulting people is horrible and when people come forward and say he did what he said in the video you have to take things more seriously unlike the allegations that Cruz had several affairs which have no basis in reality. Admit it, the man is total moron plain and simple. I would have appreciated everyone coming out against this idiot in the primaries. I was it’s all here for the record did you? No Dobson isn’t a shill I respect him a lot but I think he was mistaken about trumps Christianity. Yes all this is a coordinated attack against trump. But he is also a complete immoral moron. Pure and simple. For the first time we have no conservatives and the republican is an immoral idiot. Admit it
October 15, 2016 at 8:51am
Not really she is done defending people who dismiss trumps accusers. Frankly I’m sick and tired of trump too. The shilling for him needs to stop. When he does bad things like constantly lying then speak up about it. You can vote for him and tell the truth. This is the sickening thing about this election on both sides. Truth has been thrown out the window
I read his comment as sarcasm. Hard to be sure though
 October 7, 2016 at 11:30pm
Let’s just admit 2016 is out of control. Nobody is talking about the very obvious thing the fact this nation turned it’s back on God and he is handing us over to vile people. People clamored for a king and got Saul. We clamor for an outsider and get trump. It’s painfully obvious 2016 is God doing exactly what he did to Israel in the OT
 October 7, 2016 at 10:35pm
Not of you’re a Christian you’re not
 October 7, 2016 at 10:24pm
Yep agreed it’s really sickening
 September 30, 2016 at 12:56pm
Trump seriously needs to shut up
 September 30, 2016 at 12:54pm
Point is he isn’t a good example
 September 30, 2016 at 12:53pm
You’ll continue supporting him even though he is horrible. Great American you are. Nothing will sway you? I mean seriously. Just call yourself a democrat.
 September 24, 2016 at 2:23pm
Peggy what’s hypocritical? No one is saying trump is good he is just better than Hillary that’s it.
 September 24, 2016 at 12:42pm
Midwest- they are indeed at odds wht Cruz and some aren’t and none of Hillary’s are compatible wht Cruz which is why Cruz reluctantly chose to vote for him. None of it is problematic. What’s problematic is if suddenly cruz starTs doing what hannity does and abandons the constitution. Then we have an issue
 September 24, 2016 at 12:09pm
Slandering his dad and mocking his wife
 September 24, 2016 at 11:43am
So Jesus doesn’t have a backbone? Ever hear of forgiveness on the cross?
 September 24, 2016 at 11:37am
Jesus forgave those nailing him to a cross even though they never asked for it. Think about it
I'm glad Cruz has chosen to forgive Trump for the personal attacks during the campaign. However, I don't think that means he has to support Trump. Trump's policies are at odds with the principals that Cruz has put forward as his own.
It doesn't mean that he "has" to vote for Trump or endorse Trump, it means that he is "choosing" to endorse and support Trump, due to his own convictions. Meanwhile, your thought process will get scankles elected.
woah.. that's deep!
But MY imaginary sky fairy is better than your imaginary sky fairy!
That's true but Hillary is much worse.

Yes, we all can forgive anyone who wrongs us - but that doesnt absolve the person from apologizing.....Trump has not apologized, so his immoral act stands.
Your comment is true. We should forgive all- but that doesn't equal trust/support. Jesus forgave the men killing him but I doubt he supported their actions doing so, nor did he trust them to run his new organization. I will have to forgive whoever wins this damned election many times over but I don't have to vote for them or defend them.
 September 24, 2016 at 11:33am
People really need to lay off Cruz. None of this is an easy decision. If people think it is they are fooling themselves
There are a lot of Hillary trolls active right now pretending to either support Trump or claim they were formerly Cruz. No sincere Trump supporter would be dissing or belittling Cruz at this point.
I am really wondering about Tsilly TSully.
You always find those trolls trying to stir the pudd'n.
Why wouldn't they? It's all they've done for a year. He's been called every name in the book, had his citizenship and eligibility wuestioned, his wife made fun of, and his dad's character called into question. All by a loathsome new york liberal on the "r" side. But, now, al, of the sudden, he's all good? You people are hypocrits.
Peggy what's hypocritical? No one is saying trump is good he is just better than Hillary that's it.
Is this the real reason Cruz changed his mind? You decide.
"Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Sunday that it’s high time for Donald Trump’s former primary challengers to come on board and support his campaign—and suggested there could be trouble for them in 2020 or 2024 if they don’t."
From Sept 18th; start at the 5:00 mark of the video.
Sure, DLV, it is not easy to hold your ground against the establishment. Only a small percentage are able to. Unfortunately, Cruz is not one of them.
Cruz did this because he was facing a difficult republican primary effort in Texas. Pure and simple. Otherwise, Cruz would have just laid low like Rand Paul.
Scared to death he might have to get a real job, better to kiss Trumps ass and hope he gets reelected.
I think it was very big of him to make that choice, despite idiots like Glenn constantly yapping in his ear. I agree it was the mature move. Personally, I think he should have done it during the time Trump was made the official candidate.
Now if only Glenn could grow up and stop pouting in his little sandbox by himself. :P
It was a REAL easy decision...he got the message loud and clear.
Back Trump or forget getting backed by the RNC next time he runs for office.
I will have to see the RNC back Cruz to believe them.
There are a lot of unknowns with Trump. He lacks the fruit to support his present positions.
But, if Hillary is elected, you can kiss your America good-bye. Satan in a pant suit will see to that.
Or Cruz sees the bigger picture and the destruction of America with Hillary (satan in a pant suit) as President. Too bad others lack the intelligence and common sense to see the bigger picture. What do you think? Sorry, let me withdraw that question.
 September 23, 2016 at 7:20pm
Soy he already has outlined the problems with trump throughout the primary and even after a bit. The reason why I believe he made an announcement is because he wants to motivate people to defeat Hillary perhaps he thinks we the people can hold people accountable but it’s very dishonest to say he is a fan of trump. He isn’t at all. Even in the beginning he laid off trump because he didn’t want to be road kill early on. You can disagree with the principle of that fine. I disagree with the way cruz handled things. I think he shouldn’t have gone to the convention and I happen to agree with you he should have just stayed out of the election spotlight but just because he did this doesn’t make him a bad man, less principled or less conservative or less constitutionalist. He is out there right now being one of the line voices for internet freedom. Where are all the voices supporting him? I don’t hear it
