Trump Accuses Ted Cruz of Dirty Tricks Before Iowa: “He Cheated- A Total Fraud!”

by | Feb 3, 2016 | Headline News | 87 comments

Do you LOVE America?



    The election chaos is hardly settled after Iowa began to cement the path of the primary and election. In fact, it has officially just gone dirty.

    Right or wrong, Trump has undoubtedly upset the apple cart, and the system has clearly been gunning for him. Clearly, they would prefer Cruz, despite his Tea Party credentials, who is married to a Goldman Sachs executive and closer to the interests of the establishment.

    The tide has changed for Donald Trump, who is now on the offensive against another candidate for the first time since the debates began.

    Perhaps stung by his second place victory, The Donald is going ALL OUT on rival and Iowa caucus victor Ted Cruz, accusing him of cheating, and playing dirty tricks against Ben Carson to steal his caucus supporters.

    Ultimately, he has demanded that Cruz be disqualified.

    The turmoil is still unfolding with live Twitter updates.

    Donald Trump went on the offensive. The Daily Sheeple rounded up these Twitter posts:

    The release falsely promoted the idea that Carson was quitting and urging those who would’ve voted for Carson to vote for Cruz instead:



    Apparently, Trump is scheduled to take his accusation on the cable news circuit tonight.

    For his part, Ben Carson – about whom these lies were allegedly spread – reportedly had this response:

    During an appearance on the FOX Business Network’s ‘After the Bell,’ Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson responded to an apology from Ted Cruz, after his campaign allegedly spread false rumors that the retired neurosurgeon was ending his 2016 bid.

    “As Christians, of course we accept people’s apologies,” Carson said. “We also have to ask ourselves is this acceptable to us, the American people, or should there be some accountability?”

    Carson added: “There should be some consequences for things. You don’t just say ‘oh, okay, sorry… okay let’s move on.’ The damage was done to me, it wasn’t done to them.”

    Sarah Palin backed up Trump on his assertions, with a tirade posted on Facebook only hours ago:

    Dirty Politics: Witnessing Firsthand It’s Always Heartbreaking, Never Surprising

    Thank heavens Donald Trump opened so many eyes to the lies, corruption and total lack of accountability that come so naturally to the permanent political class. And Sen. Ted Cruz was spot on when he once noted that “millions of Americans are asking for accountability and truth.” Which is why it’s so curious – and saddens us – this lack of accountability with the lies of Cruz’s own campaign.

    Cruz’s campaign chairman, U.S. Representative Steve King, is lying, and good for Dr. Ben Carson for calling this out. King, who’s previously asked for and received my endorsement, time and resources to support his own election, is still lying about my altruistic support of Mr. Trump, and he’s refused to provide any evidence to the contrary. And, this U.S. Congressman actually lied to his own constituents on behalf of Cruz, regarding a good man, Dr. Carson. He told voters Carson was dropping out of the Presidential race immediately before the Iowa caucus, causing a relative uproar inside the process, so the word would spread and he could rack up more votes for his candidate, Cruz. That’s a dirty trick. Dr. Carson deserved better. The voters deserved better!

    Where is the accountability for these political actions? Very sad; typical Washington tactics. THIS is why “the status quo has got to go.”

    Our friend Dr. Carson put it so well:

    “As Christians, of course we accept people’s apologies, we also have to ask ourselves is this acceptable to us, the American people, or should there be some accountability? There should be some consequences for things. You don’t just say ‘oh, okay, sorry… okay let’s move on.’ The damage was done to me, it wasn’t done to them.”

    We’ve had eight years of a reckless President, accountable to no one, pushing this country to the brink. Why would we ever take a risk repeating that? We are never going to turn this country around if we keep electing “more of the same.” Just like conservatives have been preaching in opposition to Obama’s political tactics for years: actions speak louder than words.

    The Cruz Campaign’s actions to destroy a good man’s efforts to serve are no different than Obama’s practice of not holding anyone accountable. Typical politics. Typical politicians.
    Here’s background:

    Steve King Refuses to Answer CNN’s Jake Tapper If He Has Any Evidence Trump Bought Palin’s Support:…/…/02/02/lead-king-on-trump-and-cruz.cnn

    Whether or not this will steal back momentum from a gaining Ted Cruz remains to be seen.

    But it would appear that the gloves are off, and the election melee is just beginning to get ugly.

      1. I wouldnt be at all surprised if the election results end up contested causing the system to be halted,,,
        THAT would also keep BHO in office,,,,







        • You know how you know trump is a phony? All he has to do it send his lawyers to court and get cruz dismissed by bringing the constitution and the lawyers to court, because cruz was born in canada. and cruz would be out, if trump does not do this in days, you know hes a phony.

          • Trumphony,

            Already done by a Texan. Being ignored so far.

        • There was no fraud. Trump is just a sore looser having a Trumpertrantrum.

          Not very presidential on Trumps part, but would make for great Jerry Springer TV.

          • My thoughts exactly , john .
            Trump is a crybaby and needs to just go home.QUIETLY and try to mantain some dignity .

            Then from the article:
            “Clearly, they would prefer Cruz,”

            LMAO , The establishment GOP is terrified of Cruz .
            They are trying to ram Rubio down our throats now that Bush is in death throws !

            • “LMAO , The establishment GOP is terrified of Cruz.”

              Yes, they are.

              • Freeslave,
                They aren’t terrified of Cruz, they hate his Nixon personality. Big difference. He is property of Goldman Sachs and they got the check to prove it.

            • You people are so hopelessly delusional.

              You people are destructively naive.

              You people are the reason why America has become AmeriKa.

              You people are flushing America down the toilet.

              • Kak, you mean the MSM sites, don’t you? You have us confused with them.

                • Braveheart,
                  Calling Cruz, owned by Goldman Sachs, anti establishment is pretty delusional. Calling Trump, a billionaire “made” in corruption the man to clean it up is delusional. Mr Trump makes money off wet back labor but is going to close borders, delusional. Mr Trump outsources his own manufacturing to China but will bring jobs back… delusional.
                  I have seen these delusional assertions all over these comment boards.
                  Keep prepping, start a garden, you will need it.

                  • Rebecca, Cruz’s wife is Goldman-Sachs AND Council On Foreign Relations. He also has some advisors who are Goldman-Sachs, CIA, etc. He’s the neocons’ DARLING. Trump was never a serious candidate anyway. He’s a close friend of the Clintons going way back. His Daughter Ivanka and Chelsea Clinton are best friends and live in the same section of Manhattan. Both the Trumps and Clintons celebrated this past Christmas together. Trump got in there only to help Hillary win. She’s already been selected by TPTB.

                    • Brave,
                      I see my friend you have been doing your home work! only way to really save and fix this country is NEW non-political people in the white house and since that PROBABLY won’t happen it is bend over rover the end is near!

                    • Rebecca, BTW, Chelsea Clinton’s husband is former Goldman-Sachs and also a member of a certain ‘tribe.’ Something about Goldman-Sachs people…..

          • 3rd.

            Trump has shown he can’t take anything else but being #1, when the masses see this; they’re going to move on.

            but trump proved there’s still plenty of suckers out there

            • Nothing can help Cruz in New Hampshire. Trump begins to move from victory to victory to victory. It will be a juggernaut. Americans want a Patriot in the Oval office. Patriots want an American in the Oval Office.

              Cruz is a Canuck controlled by Goldman Squid. 🙁

              • I thought from reading the comments here that you had some really good points to make. Some not so good from my perspective. But all and all pretty good. But to say that Trump is a patriot is really a silly thing to say. Yeah, he is picking up the ball for all the people that BO has disenfranchised, but that was the plan. Left, right, left right. I guess you have fallen for that too. Hey, I guess you still have a little work left to do. We all have to snap out of the paradigm.

                • Who Knew: TRUMP is not part of the Left/Right Paradigm, that’s why the Left and the RINOS are both attacking him. They are the establishment.

                  TRUMP represents a threat to the status quo and they know it. 🙂

                  • Yeah,right. We have be warned about the two party dictatorship for a hundred years. If you can’t see through this you need to do a little more research. I wish that Trump’s one man show was the answer too. It isn’t. And if you listen to everything that he says, instead of just hearing what you want to hear I think you would start to see whom he really works for. If you can’t overcome your confirmation bias then go out and vote for him for all the reasons that you believe. Your vote doesn’t matter anyway. All that does is tell your owners that you still believe that you have a choice. And that’s really all this show is about. They want you really mad enough to go out and vote. And then vote again the next time around. Oh yeah, and don’t forget the next time after that either, after you get skunked again. And I’m changing my name to something else. I think that there was a person on here before using this name. I just can’t think of one yet. So if you get another reply and it doesn’t seem familiar it could be me. The guy that doesn’t vote because I now know what they know.

            • I met Cruz when he was running for Texas Senator. He had a meet and greet with about 30 people so I was able to ask some pointed questions.

              One comment he said that really stuck out is when he spoke about his father. His father was in Cuba before Castro.

              He father had told Cruz that he always believe that if things got really shitty in Cuba he could always go to America.

              Cruz went on to say that if things get really shitty in America, where are you going to go?

              His point is that there is no other place to go so we have to fix it right now.

              I was impressed because his comment was kinda like a prepper type comment. I think Cruz knows the gravity of the situation.

              • I like Cruz. I like TRUMP much, much better. None of the GOP candidates would be talking about ILLEGAL immigration right now if TRUMP had not made it a central issue. Not one of them would have suggested that we not take in Jihadist refugees, but TRUMP did.

                No one would be talking about the CRIMINAL treatment given to our veterans by the PTB if TRUMP had not made it a central issue. Nationwide, 300,000 American heros died waiting for the medical care their government promised them. 11,000 died in Arizona. Nothing happened to those responsible for this national tragedy.

                Not one of the other GOP candidates would be talking about NAFTA, Special Status for China, and FREE TRADE if TRUMP had not made it a central issue.

                Lets face it, at their core, ALL of the GOP candidates are stooges for the New World Order…. except TRUMP. That’s a fact. If that were not true, the New World Order Left and Right would not be vilifying him so much in the press and doing their level best to stop him from the Oval Office.

                You have to ask yourself why so much vitriol from the PTB?

                Why ??? He is a real threat to their plan to enslave the American People. He is not a perfect candidate, but he is the best of the bunch and he understands the Gangster Banksters are just that. He has called them “killers”.

                Americans need a Patriot in the Oval Office. 🙂

            • So Trump called Cruz a fraud? It takes one to know one.

              • I’m sorry to say this BH, as I too adored Ron Paul. But TRUMP finally DID what we all wanted Ron Paul to do – Challenge the Vote Total and show the NEOCONS for the lying Hebraic frauds and manipulator they are!!! Weather RON PAUL was too much a gentleman or just weak, TRUMP (whatever his reasoning) has the BALLS to call out these system abusers. To me that shows a strenght that I want in a leader. TRUMP’S not one to take being “Schlonged” lying down!!

            • Apache54, the only hope we had for peaceful change was Ron Paul and we all know how that turned out. The system is beyond saving. Either we start all over form scratch or the country is doomed. I don’t see any other way.

          • No fraud?
            So what you’re really saying is ” I support white genocide!”

          • It was fraud. Read the Cruz e-mail. They clearly asked to have Carson supporters caucus for Cruz because Carson was getting out. Nice fine Christian move from someone that is a 1% tyther and who’s father is a pastor. Real genuine lump of shit.

          • JS, imagine Trump having the nuclear codes available to him. Now THAT is something scary!

            • TRUMP was against going into Iraq and Afghanistan. He is against ISIS (read: CIA), and he would displace the NEO CON mentality in DC that wants to expand the “American Empire”.

              I believe that he could mitigate the rough spots in our relationship with Putin because as most of you here understand, Putin is doing what is good for Russia. Trump understands that too.

              TRUMP does not want America to be the world’s policeman and he wants Europe to step up and accept its responsibilities for its own defense.

              TRUMP is the best option for a return to the America we all grew up in, and a return of government back to Americans. We need a Patriot in the Oval Office. TRUMP is the only Patriot in the bunch. 🙂

              • Trump is pro-Israel and doesn’t deny it. He joyfully says it. And to think that Trump is going to be friends with Russia is to say that he will stop payments to the MIC. It ain’t gonna happen. And your guy also likes to say that he wants to control the Internet because it recruits terrorists. Right. OB promised a lot of stuff too. And what did you get. Yeah, you got stuff in one hand, and stuff in the other.

                • TRUMP is a doer. His real estate empire testifies to that fact. I am pro Israel too. I am not pro Mossad. I am pro America. I am not pro CIA.

                  No he will not stop payments to the MIC. Nor do I want him too. When analysts compare the military budgets of China and Russia to the budget of the USA, they always compare in USD. This is a fallacy because neither Russia nor China pay for their weapons in USD. When you multiply their budgets by the ratio of their currency to ours, you discover that they are spending almost as much as we are for their weapons.

                  When you compare TRUMP to Obola you destroy any justification for your arguments. Obola is a Kenyon and a Muslim. TRUMP is a New Yorker and a Christian, but the last I knew, New York was still a part of the USA. 🙂

                  • How could you be pro-Israel and against the Mossad and CIA. How are things in your world? That’s possible there? Seriously.
                    The USG funnels money into the MIC thorough just the fear porn that you are parroting. Yeah, there is a cold war going on again. Yes there is. They’re making sure of it. And that war sends all the country’s financial assets, taxes(?), whatever, to the MIC who kickback a part of that through campaign contributions and employment for the congressional prodigy. There are other skims too. Like 5 trillion is missing from the Pentagon and we don’t have an idea where to start looking.
                    I am not comparing Trump to Obama in a religious or racial sense. In fact I don’t even think of Obama like the people who are running this psyop want me too. I don’t see him without a birth certificate and I don’t see him as a Muslim. I see him for the pawn that he is. Well now I guess you are right. I am comparing Trump to Obama.

          • Where does Carson fit into your misinformed fallacy? Is HE too a sore loser? (You’ve misspelled loser). Is it your idea of “Presidential” that our next leader not challenge fraudulent activity? Or maybe, he just shouldn’t defend a Black Man? (Carson).. Your argument has so many holes in it, I mistook it for a block of Swiss Cheese, you RAT!





          • Acid, not until YOU stop YOUR BS of blaming us ‘old farts’ for this country’s problems.

            • It is your guys faults. Endless wars, ever increasing government. It’s been going on since the sixties. Former hippies and disco fags are running the government now, not the youth of America. I’m only 32, never voted for Obama. Can’t lay the blame at my feet.

          • What you should worry about, in your case, is how God reacts to the idea of men sucking other mens…ddddiiiccckkks.

            If He wanted men sucking cox, He would have made our necks about two feet longer.

            Suck on that a while.

        • Kula – If Trump loses (meaning if he isn’t selected by TPTB) he will do exactly that. After all, he bragged and boasted that he could shoot someone and still get elected.

          Come high hell or water, he expects to be elected and has even stated that he will be the next POTUS. Now, if it was all a joke, rigged to get his friend Hellary in office, he will still do something to get Muslama out of Office, such as hurling accusations and contesting the system.

          And, as far as the voters contesting the outcome, they do not care what ‘we the people’ think.

        • Kulafarmer, Bush’s election was contested and went to the Supreme Court. They picked Bush. Fraud, but he served two terms.

          • They also did a couple of recounts that showed Bush to be the winner. You need to update your lies.

      2. As I said on earlier article page…..just to add to the discussion here.

        I have stated several times that T Cruz is the NWO’s neo Con answer to the flip side of the Billery coin.
        The billionaires like Soros that “handle” politicians for their one world gov scam, always have both sides covered.
        I said he/Cruz, would eventually be exposed as billery was many years ago. Here is just one article that says it all….
        ht —-tp://

        Why would a Cruz representative give the voters the lie that Carson was already pulling out of the race?
        Because, they are crooks.
        Speaking of crooks, I would like to borrow that coin that the dems used to flip, to give billery those delegates. Every time in favor of her.
        I bet ole Bern would like to see it as well

        • Sarah Palin got this one right about Steve King. He is a crook and looks every bit the part. He is expecting Cruz to win so he can get a cushy job and big salary…possibly as vice potus.

          Would those two crooks be any better or any worse than billery as leaders?

          It depends if you like your shit sandwich soft and chewy or hard and crunchy. Neither one will go down the hatch very well.

          Two of the best choices have already dropped out….Huck n Buck, and Paul.

          • Passin;
            I have a problem with Huckabee in that he pardoned a violent offender in Arkansas the moved to Seattle and shot 4 cops to death in cold blood. Please correct me if I am mistaken.

      3. Only God and the Messiah can fix this broken planet. Trump will not save us….

        • God and the Messiah will not fix this world, but instead will wipe it out then start over. As he once did before.

          • Very true.

      4. I am so shocked.

        Shocked I tell you.

        I need to sit down, I think I have the vapors.

        … really? What did you think was happening there dude? Like Hillary is (excuse me, SHOULD BE) about 2 inches from Federal Prison and she ties Sanders???? Not in anything resembling a normal universe she doesn’t.

        Cheating???? NEVER. Of course not. You must jsut be a sore loser… 9_9

        • Moral character is no longer a pre-requisit for President.

      5. At this point my take on the current presidential candidates, with the exception of Dr Ben Carson is slimy used car salesmen,,,,
        I wouldnt trust any of these arseholes,,,
        Its a shame, our country is circling the drain

        • What do you think, was Khrushchev correct? Look at our God forsaken country. Communist “Feel the Burn” Bernie Sanders is getting 50% of the vote. There is no hope at this point.


          “You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept Communism outright; but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you; we’ll so weaken your economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”

          • Maddog,
            Be calm. The Democratic party has one-quarter of registered voters. Half of one-quarter is only 12.5% Both parties are defunct. About 75% of his followers are voting for him because he is the only one talking about taking down the banksters. Ask a Re p u Blick candidate about Wall Street fraud and the latest bailout they shoved through before the shtf.

          • Maddog Becky says be calm, the Dems only have 25% of the registered voters and 75% of the cemetary and Nikita and Bernie sure don’t turn off Becky> Where is Philos when we need her! Trekker Out.

        • Absolutely. I am protesting the potus elections by voting for “First Ladies” instead.

          Currently I am casting my vote for Melania Trump. She is pleasantly exotic, and lovely. I could watch her beside/behind the Donald and not mouth puke as when seeing old slimey bill or snakey fakey Heidi Cruz, aka the bankster mom.

          The legs have it.

          • Passin if your voting for First Ladies, does that mean your voting for Hellary, cause thats the only thing she ever was. Trekker Out.

      6. ht tp://

        we just love getting F’ed up the ass by our illegitimate government dont we?

      7. The Fkn FBI doesnt even have authorization to do S*IT

        The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have not been reauthorized by Congress since 2009. The State Department hasn’t been reauthorized since 2003. For the Federal Trade Commission and National Weather Service, it’s 1998 and 1993, respectively. The Federal Election Commission has been operating with an expired authorization since way back in 1981. Meet your unauthorized government. Every federal agency is supposed to operate under congressional authorization

        how about you Fkers get your house together before you go around MURDERING people !!!

      8. Mmm hot shit sandwiches can i get mine with cheeze cus im still not putting my mouth on the unicorns ass i dont beleive thats where skittles come from. How do you make nut butter and no not the one you kmow you want to respond with but like walnut hickory ect

        • ht tp://

          • Thanks

      9. I would love to know if Trump is up to speed regarding TPTB / NWO control. Assuming he is and he’s genuine he sure has courage. If he thinks he has seen dishonesty at his level of business they’re rookies.

        There is no way TPTB will allow their strangle hold of their premiere employee to be taken from them. Depression, inflation, war, pandemic are all options they have. Like a spoiled child they would break all of their toys before sharing them. One Achilles Heel that they have is the more they do the greater their exposure. In the end, like a damn snake they need to be hidden, lurking, making events not just reacting to them. “The Donald” and even likewise Sanders are sand in the gears.

      10. Bias article doesn’t mention CNN for reporting that Carson dropped out of the race without verifying it first with Carson. It’s an all out attack on Cruz who believed the CNN report as well. But also everyone knows CNN lies and supports liberals and Cruz should have known better.

        And Trump taking the slinter out of his opponents eye is funny when he has a log jam in his own. Is it fair? Only when the truth in facts really are exposed.

        • Wouldn’t someone pick up the fucking phone at the Cruz house and just ask Carson if he was dropping out. Ever occur to you? This is bullshit stunt by a sleazy as Neocon that is about to bamboozle himself out of contention. He would never make it in a general anyway. However, they all suck.

      11. Very simple, if illegal immigration continues at its current pace, along with the influx of refugees, and amnesty for the illegals already here, the few swing states left will become solid Democrat. In less than a generation the country becomes California, one political party, Democrats and their agenda will finish off Obama’s transformation.

        Trump is the only candidate willing to do something about this problem.

        Cruz, born in Canada is willing to say or do anything depending on which crowd he is talking to. Christian talker one day, Big banking ally the next. He wife has a high position with Goldsman-Sach…..wake up..

        • NO WAY OUT



        • ovomit set the stage with his so called american birth in kenya BS

          now everyone is going to try it and rubio and cruz are no different.
          both want the job so bad they will lie cheat and steal to get it but its US who will pay for it

          Bush spends 58 million so far and is in what 5th ? 7 th place ?
          how in the hell does this even make sense

          millions suddenly appear to run elections but we cant pay down the National debt ?
          or feed poor children etc

          How about instead of this insane level of wasteful spending we take the same amount and use it too build up the mid west and get more farms going again

          and then maybe we can buy veggies and fruit that is not covered in Mexican shit !!

          ever notice how we have an outbreak of e coli(?)
          and its traced back to some southern Ca farm that has 300 illegals working for them and 98% of the time its because they actually shit in the fields so they don’t have to spend 5 mins in a porta potti
          stupid FU&%ing savages

          America has been in the toilet since the late 60s and all the BS with Nafta etc is why we don’t have many family farms its been the master plan to have us 100% dependent on the south Americans and Chinese for all our food.

        • The last five presidents have pushed the immigration agenda in both parties. This included R. Reagan. Many will sit out the polls, fed up with the lies and fake promises. If Trump runs, some who haven’t voted in a decade or more, will show up for Trump, however much of the damage is already done and won’t get fixed. Muslim invaders keep on coming.

      12. Yeah?
        Well no friken surprise
        The entire government is a complte fraud

      13. “Gov. Rick Scott declared a health emergency in four counties Wednesday after at least nine cases of the mosquito-borne Zika illness were detected in Florida.”

      14. I note that the description of Cruz is that he is “closer to the interests of the establishment.” I haven’t decided who I will vote for, but I have to say that there must be some alternate universe involved here.

        If this description of Cruz is, in fact, true, the distance must be measured in microns.

      15. Vote for Hillary.

      16. Was it six times she won the coin toss?

        Talk about the fix is in.

        • Hillary is two faced. Thats why the coin came up heads each time.

      17. Sorry to say. I have watched Cruz rise from the grass roots days of Tea Party Texas and I have always had a queasy feeling about him. He came up with the support of the most gullible, naive constituency of the Texas electorate. It’s been a little creepy to see this play out. It will be harder to catch Cruz out than the greased pig at the Houston Rodeo. I trust him NOT. We all knew Bush was dumb and Perry was dumber. But Cruz is smart in the WRONG way.

      18. Don’t you all worry about Trump, Cruz, or Rubio. Jeb Bush is the NWO approved candidate (along with Hillary).

        Remember, one only consults for the Presidency. The electoral college elects the president and there is nothing binding between the “popular” vote and who gets elected to President.

        Even less so in the “primary” phase. The Party’s put forth their candidate, not the people.

          The popular vote determines the Electoral votes. Once a candidate receives 50% + 1 of the popular votes within a state they get all of the electoral votes that are determined by the number of Senators and Congressmen. It makes it improbable that any candidate need get more than 50% of one state and therefore divides power between large population states and small as much as possible. The Founding Fathers were brilliant; too bad their desires are not followed.

          Its civics 10.

          The above being said what Josef Stalin stated is true, “Its not who votes but who counts the votes”. In tight elections this is especially important.

          • Civics 101

          • I’m sorry kevin but that is absolutely not true. There is nothing binding between who your congressman (memeber of the electoral college) votes for president and the popular vote.

            It is built into the constitution that way in order to guard against “fraud” in voting. The founders designed it to be that way.

            Just because you see electoral votes that correspond to the popular vote is part of the illusion. In fact, some states have even been tinkering with proportional electoral votes.

            Senators DO NOT vote for the president of the United States.

            I can be your study buddy if you want to pass Civics 101!

      19. I can sum up the election for us all. We are fucked any way you slice it.

        • We were fucked when Obama came to power. Now the screwing is just about complete and America is getting ready to receive the money shot to the face.

          • Sounds like a really bad porno.

      20. anybody who thinks Cruz is any different is in for a sad surprise

        I just watched his explanation of what happened
        can you say SPIN

        and he is going to hold NO one on his campaign staff accountable
        he doesn’t want to “scapegoat”
        NO Ted
        you lying slimy weasel
        its called ACCOUNTABILITY

        what was done to Carson was not an accident
        it was done on PURPOSE

        just more proof
        that when somebody talks about Jeebus constantly
        buyer beware
        they ain’t makin’ “Christians” like dey used to !

      21. So how long does it take on average to get a comment posted on here? This isn’t exactly instagram is it? And from my experience with moderators, I might not be on this site long. I don’t know what it is, but I have been removed from other supposedly reputable sites before. I think that this site might be more tolerable. Or the posters here have been vetted and controlled opposition allowed.

        Welcome, we would like to hear what you have to say. Well, as long as we approve. We will see. Always wanted to comment here. Now I guess I will get the chance since other doors have been closing.

      22. This is a great prepper site, but, holy shit, what a disasterous political site. A lot of stupid in one place.

        • Why, because they don’t all agree with you, they are stupid?

          Get over yourself, kid.
