DON’T DO THE DEW

VOTE TED CRUZ

Too sexually charged? Alright, try this one.

SLAY THE DC GORMAGON

WITH A CRUZ MISSILE

Too revolutionary? How about this, then?

CRUZIFY DEWHURST

Too violent? Okay, I give up.

Truth Before Dishonor endorsed Ted Cruz over all other candidates for US Senate (Texas) very early on, earlier than did Sarah Palin or most other notables. But Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Mark Levin all came out with early endorsements for Ted Cruz, while David Dewhurst, scuzzball that he is, tried to paint Ted Cruz as a commie-pinko-loving DC corruptocrat. Dewhurst used all manner of lies and misinformation to try to destroy Ted Cruz (the Chicago way) in a disgusting outburst of raw sewage.

David Dewhurst has tried to convince Texans that Ted Cruz is in bed with Communist China, a tool of the Chi-Coms. Ted Cruz. The son of a man who fled Cuba to get away from the Communist enslavement. Ted Cruz, who learned from his father that if the US fell, there would be no place on Earth to flee to. A ComSimp.


 

(You can read the entire transcript of Robert Stacy McCain’s exclusive interview from October 2011 I provided at the above link to The Other McCain.)

David Dewhurst has accused Ted Cruz of wrongfully siding with a Chinese Government owned company over an American company, destroying American jobs, and taking Chi-Com money to do it. It is disgustingly dishonest and intentionally deceptive, in order to try to convince the uninformed of a lie. That “American” company? The American who owns it pulled all of the manufacturing out of the US 20 years ago, moving it to Communist China! If any jobs were lost, those jobs would have been held by Chinese subjects of Communist tyranny, and not US citizens.

David Dewhurst claimed that Ted Cruz is bought and paid for — thus beholden to — DC insiders. Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Mark Levin. Washington insiders? Can David Dewhurst tell the truth at all about Ted Cruz? Who in their right minds would think Sarahcuda or The Great One would give their full support and their Star Power to a DC corruptocrat insider? Anyone? Anyone?

Why can’t David Dewhurst run on his record? Perhaps because his record stinks so bad that David Dewhurst is busily changing and scrubbing it. Dewhurst loudly and proudly advocated for full amnesty to all illegal aliens in Texas. And then, in a move many have proclaimed could be in violation of Texas Law, tried to have it stricken from the Official Record. Dewhurst pushed for a wage tax (that would be an income tax) for the income tax-free state of Texas, and has since tried to memory-hole that action. When a Sanctuary City bill (a bill that would eliminate all sanctuary cities in Texas — where illegals can run to and not fear deportation) was in the Texas Legislature, it was Dewhurst in his job as Lieutenant Governor who killed it, despite the overwhelming support for it. David Dewhurst’s record is abysmal for someone claiming to be the Conservative choice. That’s why the scuzzball cannot run on his record.

And David Dewhurst has gotten even more Dishonorable as the run-off election nears, and Dewhurst’s desperation begins to show full force. Many “in the know” have said that the race that was once supposed to be a coronation of the Republican Lieutenant Governor (who nearly got 50 percent of the vote in the Primary, which would have prevented a run-off) is now Ted Cruz’s to lose. So what does David Dewhurst do? He runs out and creates a totally dishonest sock puppet. From Twitchy.com on July 7:

While Cruz maintains an active Twitter presence, Dewhurst’s personal Twitter account has been silent for more than a week and his official campaign account has tweeted just four times in the last eight days. Maybe that’s because Team Dewhurst is more focused on duping voters through misleading social media practices.

Blogger Kemberlee Kaye discovered that “TXSen Fact Checker,” a supposedly objective Twitter account “dedicated to fact-checking the claims in the race for U.S. Senate in Texas,” is actually a Dewhurst for Texas project.

All links go to a tumblr account with a matching name, txsenfactcheck.com which has a similar description as the twitter, “a microsite dedicated to fact-checking the claims in the race for U.S. Senate in Texas, launched to separate fact from fiction in the constant information flow concerning the July 31st run-off.” Once again, no mention of candidate affiliation, that is until you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page where, “Paid for by Dewhurst for Texas” appears in tiny print.

The Twitter bio for @TXSenFactCheck does not disclose the account’s affiliation with the Dewhurst campaign.

So are we clear on this yet? David Dewhurst is Dishonoring himself with his wholly dishonest attacks and his sockpuppetry in order to try to destroy Ted Cruz’s good name.

And the BIG GUNS have come out. In a very big way. Sarah Palin and Jim DeMint are going to a Ted Cruz rally in Houston on Friday. Glenn Beck will be at a Ted Cruz rally in Dallas on Thursday. Rick Santorum will be pounding the Texas pavement with Ted Cruz this weekend. Rand Paul is coming down to Texas to stump for Ted Cruz. Tea Party Express is all-in for Ted Cruz.

When you have powerhouse names in the Constitutional Conservative movement going all-in in support of Ted Cruz, how is a dishonest schemer such as David Dewhurst supposed to paint Cruz as a RINO ComSimp DC insider and it actually, you know, stick? Only with the uneducated will Dewhurst’s dishonest attacks work.

Irrelevant Sarah Palin Endorses Third Place Candidate

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/16

And third place candidate wins.

To the chagrin of the Ruling Class Republicans.

Deb Fischer was in third place, 16 points behind the front-runner establishment-picked candidate. Jim DeMint endorsed the other non-establishment Conservative candidate, who was in second place and finished a dismal third place. Sarah Palin endorsed Deb Fischer, who went from 16 points down to winning by 5 points. Not bad for an irrelevant person’s endorsement, eh?

Oh, and immediately after Deb Fischer won the Primary over the Establishment Candidate, Jim DeMint endorsed her. No dilly dallying around. No sour grapes. No nothing. He was happy to endorse Deb Fischer with his Conservative endorsement.

What does a Sarah Palin endorsement mean? If you read the comment section at the above link, you will find out exactly what it means. Cornhuskers who were considering voting for someone other than Fischer heard of Palin’s endorsement. That meant they needed to do research. It did not mean they had to mindlessly vote for “Palin’s Pick”. And, upon doing their research, they found Deb Fischer to be just what the doctor ordered.

Make no mistake, the Republican Primary in the Cornhusker State was the NCAA Finals. The General Election is just a formality as the Democrat stands no chance to win in the strongly Conservative state of Nebraska, especially after the Cornhusker Kickback destroyed the current Democrat Senator so much so that he had to “retire” and get a carpet-bagging replacement for himself on the Democrat ticket. Immediately after Deb Fischer won the Republican Primary, she was declared by PPP (a Democrat polling outfit) to be a 10 point favorite over Kerrey, a 12-year New York State resident who moved to Nebraska specifically to run as the Democrat replacement for the Cornhusker Kickback bribe-taker (who cannot even go to a pizzaria without getting booed out of the place).

You know who this helps? Ted Cruz of Texas. Yes, the irrelevant Sarah Palin, whose endorsements cause people to research and then vote for her endorsements, has endorsed Ted Cruz over some cat named Lt Gov Dewhurst. And Dewhurst’s dishonest smears of Ted Cruz are all over Conservative radio in Texas. I know. I live in Texas and I listen to Conservative talk radio on my way to and from work.

Rick Perry has endorsed David Dewhurst. Sarah Palin has endorsed Ted Cruz. Rick Perry was in danger of losing his Republican Primary bid for Governor to squishy Kay Bailey Hutchison until Sarah Palin rode in on her white horse and endorsed Rick Perry. Now, their competing endorsements will tell a tale. Having endorsed Ted Cruz long before Sarah Palin did, I welcome Sarahcuda’s endorsement of my candidate of choice. And I expect Mama Grizzly will have more pull in the great state of Texas than Texas’ own Republican Governor Perry.

So much for the “Sarah Palin is irrelevant” meme. But it’s also more proof that the Conservative use of “social media” is shaking things up in national politics, and especially harming the Ruling Class elitist Republicans.

Attention SC Senator Grahamnesty:

Be afraid. Be very afraid. We’re coming for YOU! Your stupid claim that the TEA Party was short-lived and irrelevant will come back and bite you in the arse, come 2014. You will be Primaried out of office (unless you “retire” first).

UPDATE: Robert Stacy McCain weighs in with an epic smack-down of some stupid dumb-arse.

The first sentence of this story about the GOP Senate primary by Josh Lederman in the Hill absurdly portrays state Sen. Deb Fischer’s victory over Nebraska State Attorney General Jon Bruning as “dealing a blow to both the Republican establishment and the Tea Party.”

This is stupid. If the Republican establishment loses to a candidate backed by both Sarah Palin and Herman Cain, of course the Tea Party wins. What else could explain it?

And Sarah Palin congratulates Deb Fischer on her victory.

Congratulations to Deb Fischer

by Sarah Palin on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 at 9:35pm ·

As recently as a week ago, Deb Fischer was dismissed by the establishment. Why? Because she is not part of the good old boys’ permanent political class. The message from the people of Nebraska is simple and powerful: America is looking for real change in Washington, and commonsense conservatives like Deb Fischer represent that change. I applaud Moms like Deb Fischer who are bold enough to step up and run on a conservative platform to restore America and protect our children’s future. Congratulations to the people of Nebraska. As the Huskers’ fight song goes: “The eyes of the land, upon every hand, are looking at you. Fight on for victory!”

RS McCain Interviews US Senate Candidate Ted Cruz (R – TX)

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/10/08

RS McCain had an exclusive interview with former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz (R), who is running in the Primary for the US Senate seat currently held by Kay Bailey Hutchison (R – TX), at the Values Voter Summit.

Since RS McCain was very busy with the Summit and catching people to interview, he requested his readers to transcribe a couple of his interviews for him, which I was only too happy to do on this one.

McCain: We’re here at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, DC, with Ted Cruz, former Solicitor-General of Texas. How are you today, Mr Cruz?

Cruz: Doing fantastic, Robert.

McCain: And I understand you’re running for Senate.

Cruz: I am, running for US Senate in Texas, and we have seen some incredible momentum and excitement. We’ve really seen Conservatives across the state of Texas and nationally uniting behind our campaign.

McCain: And as some people have compared you to Marco Rubio, as the “Marco Rubio of Texas”, you are yourself also Cuban.

Cruz: Well, that’s right. And that’s an incredibly kind comparison. Marco and I share a very similar personal story, which is that my dad is from Cuba, he was born there, he grew up there, and he was imprisoned and tortured in Cuba as a teenager when he was 17. And he fled Cuba, he came to the United States. When he was 18, he showed up in Austin. Had no money, didn’t speak English, had 100 dollars sewn into his underwear, and he went and got a job as a dishwasher making 50 cents an hour. And he worked 7 days a week and he paid his way through school at the University of Texas. And I’ll tell you, Robert, when I was a kid my dad used to say to me all the time, “when we faced depression in Cuba, I had a place to flee to. If we lose our freedom here, where do we go?” And there’s no question that better explains why it is I’m running for Senate than that question right there.

McCain: And so your website is?

Cruz: It’s tedcruz.org. Tedcruz.org and we’re also on FaceBook. We’ve got over 64,000 supporters on FaceBook nationwide. What we are doing is building a Conservative TEA Party Army all across Texas and all across the country. And we have seen tremendous support. Just this week, National Review magazine made the very generous decision to put our campaign on the cover of the magazine. And I’ll tell you, Robert, the last US Senate candidate who they put on the cover was Marco Rubio almost exactly two years ago. And it worked out pretty well the last time. I hope we see the same result here.

McCain: Alright, well good luck to you, Ted Cruz. That’s tedcruz.org.

Cruz: That’s it.

McCain: Alright, thank you.

RS McCain is definitely in Cruz’ corner, as is Senator Jim DeMint. Jazz Shaw at Hot Air (who linked to RS McCain’s interview and quoted part of my transcription (woohoo)) seems to think Cruz may well be a strong Republican up-and-comer. And Instapundit thought well enough of the Ted Cruz interview that he gave RS McCain an Instalanche.

As Jazz Shaw said, “It’s probably worth your time to check him out.” And I believe I have found who I will be voting for in the US Senate Primary in Texas next year.
