GOP FRONTRUNNER SAVAGES NEAREST RIVAL WITH BLISTERING EARLY STATE SPOT
Billionaire businessman and GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has a new television ad out this week blasting U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas – his closest competition in national polls as well as early-voting Iowa and South Carolina.
Trump’s ad – entitled “Clear Difference” – depicts Cruz struggling to defend his position on the issue of illegal immigration. Specifically, it shows him wilting under questioning from Fox News’ Bret Baier during a disastrous interview last month.
During his exchange with Baier, Cruz attempted to explain his sponsorship of a 2013 immigration amendment as being part of a broader effort to “defeat Marco Rubio’s amnesty” bill.
At the time, however, Cruz claimed he was “not (trying) to kill immigration reform” and that he wanted Rubio’s legislation to pass.
Baier slammed Cruz for the disconnect – and for inaccurately stating during a GOP debate that he had “never supported legalization.”
At the time, Cruz said he supported a bill improving “legal immigration” – one that “allows those here illegally to come out of the shadows.”
“We should look for areas of bipartisan agreement and compromise to come together,” Cruz said at the time.
Ironically, a political action committee supporting Cruz has run ads attacking Rubio’s bill – equating it to the open borders ideology espoused by U.S. president Barack Obama.
Support for amnesty has been among the forces contributing to Rubio’s undoing during the 2016 “Republican” primary – which Trump has dominated in no small part due to his aggressive opposition to illegal immigration.
Anyway, here’s Trump’s spot …

“Ted Cruz is a total hypocrite and, until recently, a Canadian citizen who may not even have a legal right to run for President,” Trump said in a statement accompanying the ad. “He didn’t disclose loans, pretending he’s Robin Hood, when he’s just another all talk, no action politician. Had I not brought up the subject of illegal immigration, an issue which Ted Cruz is very weak on, nobody would even be talking about it. I will build a great wall, and Mexico will pay for it.”
Trump’s new ad is running in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina – where voters go to the polls on February 1, February 9 and February 20, respectively.
According to Trump’s campaign, he will spend a combined $2 million per week in those three states pushing the spot.
According to the latest aggregate polling from Real Clear Politics, Trump and Cruz are running neck-and-neck in Iowa – with “The Donald” enjoying a narrow 2.6 percentage point lead. However, a recent CNN/ ORC poll in Iowa showed Trump leading Cruz by 11 percentage points.
In New Hampshire and South Carolina, Trump is dominating the rest of the field.
Hard to see how anyone but Trump will be the GOP nominee.
A very sound observation.
My master plan is almost complete. Hang on Hillary, this election will be good as yours.
I’ll be the Republican Alvin Greene!
Some recognized Trump for the blowhard he is a long time ago.
I like Cruz and Rubio for that matter.However this election is about stopping the Democrats from creating a whole new voter base in the future by flooding this country with illegal immigrants and refugees.
As REAL Americans ,Trump is the ONLY one we can trust to end this lawlessness.No Amnesty-No Citizenship-Build the Wall-Deport Illegals.
Just be prepared to pay 10-20% or more for everything. Labor costs will rise significantly once the illegals are gone.
They’ll blame who they always blame: government.
More American jobs will be lost from businesses closing than Americans hired to replace illegals.
Right Bernie.If we follow the Constitution and enforce the rule of law, America will lose jobs.
Gotta love all the Trump bots clogging up the comments sections with non-sense.
What does it pay?
You seem angry.Trump really pisses you off.Don’t worry-when Hillary is indicted I post on that subject.
Fair and balanced.
Angry? This shit is hilarious, especially since that doped up Palin jioned the show. Angry is how Trump supporters self-identify. You should have studied a little before you took this online job.
I am not paid.I post to try and save America from the criminal Democrat Socialist Party.
Uh yeah, sure you do ;-)
He”s been around for a while, …
unlike yourself, perhaps.
Tramps great. I liked when he did the Retarded Reporter jokes, how he cut off his handicapped nephew from healthcare, the time he ripped out clumps of Ivana’s hair and then raped her. He’s a stand up guy. Must feel a certain bond with Track.
That false stuff you posted might matter if Hillary wasn’t a criminal and her husband a rapist/pedophile and Bernie wasn’t a communist that honeymooned in the former USSR.
A guy is in the men’s room taking a leak. He finishes and heads to the sink to wash his hands. Just then, another guy walks in who is holding his arms up near his chest with his wrists bent sharply down. He wanders to the urinal and just stands in front of it. He looks over at the first guy and says in a nasal kind of voice, “thir could you pleathe help me?”
The first guy is thinking to himself that he should have skipped washing his hands this time as he says, “what do you need me to do?”
The second guy says, “could you pleathe unzip my panth for me?”
Begrudgingly, the first guy does as asked, hoping like hell no one else comes in and sees this. He also thinks that if he were in the second guy’s place, he’d hope someone would be willing to help him out in such an unenviable situation.
Once the second guys zipper is down, the first guy starts to make a quick exit but is too late. The second guy says, “mithter, would you please pull my thing out for me?”
The first guy is thinking, “aww shit. Why the fuck did I have to come into this bathroom and pee, today?” He also grudgingly thinks that if he were in this guy’s shape, he’d hope someone would be understanding and help him.
He uneasily reaches into the second guy’s pants and pulls his weiner out and tries again to get to the door, but is too late.
“Mithter, would you please aim it at the urinal for me?”
The first guy is thinking about how even his charitable inclinations have limits but again hopes that if he were in such an unenviable situation, someone would help him.
Feeling somewhat nauseaous, he aims the second guy’s member at the urinal and holds it until he is finished.
When he was done peeing, the second guy says, “mithter, would you please shake it and put it back in for me?”
The first guy is seriously cursing the fates that put him in the same bathroom with the second guy as he complies with the second guy’s wishes.
As he finishes zipping the second guy’s pants back up, the first guy says, “ordinarily, I wouldn’t ask such a question but being as I have gone above and beyond to accomodate you, I am curious and just want to ask, what is the nature of your disability?”
“Oh, I’m not dithabled. I just had my nails done and the polish isn’t dry, yet.”
Sure.False.They have risen however 20% with Obamacare.
The influx of foreign workers holds down salaries, keeps unemployment high, and makes it difficult for poor and working class Americans – including immigrants themselves and their children – to earn a middle class wage. Nearly half of all immigrants and their US-born children currently live in or near poverty, including more than 60 percent of Hispanic immigrants. Every year, we voluntarily admit another 2 million new immigrants, guest workers, refugees, and dependents, growing our existing all-time historic record population of 42 million immigrants. We need to control the admission of new low-earning workers in order to: help wages grow, get teenagers back to work, aid minorities’ rise into the middle class, help schools and communities falling behind, and to ensure our immigrant members of the national family become part of the American dream.
Trump and his supporters don’t have a basic grasp on how our econonmy works, but Trump sure loves bringing in cheap foreign labor to works his resorts.
Right. They aren’t going to work on farms and dairies, clean toilets and babysit for rich people. If teens need a job I see plenty of openings at fast food restaurants. And at my local ones I haven’t seen a latino working at them – only black and white folks various ages.
The U.S. Department of Labor has estimated that more than half of all field workers are immigrants, while farmer groups believe the figure is closer to 70 percent, the Journal noted. The average age of farm workers is 37, according to government data.
The election is about stopping republican wars for global domination.
That you Kim Jong-un? I see North Korea just took an American hostage apparently following the Iranian plan of extorting billions and nukes from America.
Oh, and Trump openly praises Kin Jung Un’s ability to stay in power by murdering his rivals….like his uncle. Thanks for bringing that up…
No-thank you.Obama paid 1.7 BILLION in ransom to get those hostages back.This is why Trump is so so appealing-he is not an appeaser.
U.S. Payment of $1.7 Billion to Iran Raises Questions of Ransom
Wiring of disputed money to Tehran coincided with departure of plane carrying 3 Americans
So, does the PR group that pays you just give you a script and some links. Pretty weak. What does it pay?
$1 a post
Take things out of context much?
Well I’ll compare it like this, he pretty much stuck his hand in a great white sharks mouth. The tour bus site advertises ” Tours your mother would not approve of”. Now you can go back to iraq, iran, nk, where ever you want the next war. I’m too old, hope ya make it back.
What’s a “REAL American?”
I’m sure France and the UK would view Trump as a REAL American, since he’s a loud-mouthed know it all who wears a hat indoors. Just like a tourist.
Who cares what they think.Muslims have taken over their hell hole countries and why they attack Trump.
Really. Stats to support your bull.
You’re a little late.
Nope.Not with a Republican President that will appoint 2 or 3 SCOTUS and reversal of Obama’s illegal E/O’s-then we can issue our own E/O’s and end the Democrat Party.
The EOs don’t have anything to do with voting. So since 2012 – 4 million new Latino voters. Legal, American citizens, registered to vote. Life’s tough.
I don’t get why legal Latino citizens would be offended at requiring everyone else to go through the processes they did to become legal residents and citizens.
I am not anti-Latino, but I am against opening the floodgates for hundreds of thousands of invaders, from any country, who violate our laws to come and stay. Heck, Mexico has far harsher immigration laws than we do.
It just happens that I work with or have made friends with a rather large group of LEGAL immigrants from Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa, India, Central and South America, and my wife is from New York, heehee. The one thing they all have in common is disgust in the way the legal process works and disgust in the pandering to the ones with no respect for our Laws. When you are willing to jump a border then DUI, CDV, lack of insurance, etc etc is no big deal.
Donald Trump supported a path to citizenship for illegals as recently as Romney’s 2012 campaign. He said Romney’s immigration policy was “mean-spirited.” Hypocrisy accusations seem to follow a circular path.
Doesn’t matter. Nothing sticks to Trump.
Bet gum does.
Look closely at the guys in that pic. They look like underworld figures, enforcers for the mob, bone crushers….
Don’t forget it.
More than 30% of likely Republican voters doubt Cruz’s eligibility, according to a recent poll. It’s the idiot wing of the party.
Trump should start pronouncing Cruz as it was intended to be pronounced: Kruse.
It is amazing the number of people who think it is not a problem. Of course its a problem. He was not born on US soil. If the only requirement to be President was one of your parents has to be a US Citizen, don’t you think the framers of the Constitution would have said that? I mean its simple to say “must be the child of a US citizen.” They did not say that, because that was not what was intended. Heck, even if it was you can bet at the time it would have been the male child of a male citizen. What they intended was the person must be born on US soil. Which can include US Embassies, military bases, and US territories. But not just someone born in a foreign country to one citizen parent. Clearly this is a problem
Just love how Immigration is this HUGE issue. Would love for people to actually state how illegal immigration has negatively impacted them personally. They are FLOODING us afterall. What about stating that illegal immigration is down under Obama? If the Right doesn’t have a scapegoat or can’t demonize the poor and minorities, they have NO platform. They can’t feel good about themselves unless they feel they are better than someone else. MAN UP and stop bitching!! If you are soooo great and wonderful, a helpless Mexican or Syrian baby shouldn’t be a problem at all.
Who knew that so many Americans had such trouble with illegals. It just seems like yesterday that they were scared to death of Ebola infecting the country. And what happened to all the outrage over the debt? That was the biggest battle cry since Obama was elected, along with Obamacare.
Exactly. Worse than herded sheep. Scared of whatever the media and Trump tells them to be scared of.
There are all kind of people who have been impacted personally by the flood of illegals. A few years ago, a teenage girl working at a local McCallisters was severely, permanently, injured when her vehicle was struck by an illegal as she was leaving work. Our courts and jails are clogged with illegals who not only violate our immigration laws, they also have a hard time obeying our laws regarding operation of motor vehicles, theft/shoplifting, assault, and more.
A fireman was killed a few years ago through the careless operation of a motor vehicle by a female illegal as he dealt with a call along an interstate.
A young girl working at a restaurant in Cayce was severely beaten and raped by an illegal. Yes, American citizens commit these kinds of offenses too, but that is no reason to import more crap, to do more harm.
I do understand that illegals do do some bad things and commit crimes. But, again, with the way they are portrayed and vilified, you’d think they’d killed/maimed as many people as white, Christian natives. What I am saying we should be focusing on things like jobs, education, healthcare, and clean air/water. These are things that affect everyone of us, everyday. Not a couple of examples you ‘heard’ about or were pointed out by Fox News.
The examples were but a small sample and each was carried in local news media. To the victims and their families, it was a big deal.
That our police, courts, and jails, are overrun with issues created by those who have no respect for us or our laws, affects all of us on a daily basis in one way or another. Guess who pays for the extra man-hours spent on processing them. Clue: it ain’t the illegals.
Our hospitals are burdened additionally with a glut of humanity that should not be here. Again, wanna guess who pays?
