TEXANS GOTTA STICK TOGETHER …

Former Texas governor Rick Perry has endorsed the presidential bid of his home-state U.S. Senator, Ted Cruz.

Perry – who abandoned his own 2016 presidential bid last September – said Cruz “has proven that he is ready to serve as Commander-in-Chief on day one.”

“He has also proven the willingness to take on the Washington Cartel and restore power and opportunity back to the people,” Perry said in his video endorsement.

Here’s the clip …

Of interest?  Perry’s endorsement of Cruz highlighted the ex-Lone Star State leader’s “tough guy” stance on immigration – which is curious considering the extent to which Perry has attacked Donald Trump, the undisputed GOP leader on this very issue.

Last summer, Perry assailed Trump as a “cancer on conservatism” – prompting his already struggling campaign to completely implode.  After peaking at eight percent this election cycle, Perry was polling at less than one percent when he dropped out of the race, according to aggregate polling data from Real Clear Politics.

Our guess is this emphasis is intended to counterbalance the impact of Trump’s recent television advertisement – which blasted Cruz for being weak on immigration reform.

Will Perry’s endorsement matter?

Probably not …

His 2012 bid – which achieved frontrunner status at one point – flamed out in spectacular fashion prior to the “First in the South” presidential primary.  He vowed to run a smarter campaign this go-round … but clearly didn’t.

Anyway, Cruz and Trump are running neck-and-neck in early-voting Iowa – which holds its 2016 caucus on February 1.  Cruz is also in second place in early-voting New Hampshire (which holds its primary on February 9) and South Carolina (which holds its primary on February 20), although he trails Trump by double digits in both of those states.

Ole and Lars, two Norwegian hunters from Minnesota, got a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose. They bagged six. As they started loading the plane for the return trip, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose. The two men objected strongly, “Last year we shot six and the pilot let us put them all on board and he had the same plane as yours.” Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. However, even on full power, the little plane couldn’t handle the load and went down a few moments after takeoff. Climbing out of the wreck Lars asked Ole, “Any idea where we are?” “Yaaah, I tink we’s pretty close to where we crashed last year.”

It will make no difference for Rafael Cruz. He is toast. He is going to lose Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. There will be no where to go from there. No path to victory for the Canadian born son of a Cuban communist father who, by his own admission, came to the US as an illegal alien.

In addition, now even Cruz is not pretending his Canadian birth is not an issue. Not only is an issue, it is a very serious issue. Under the interpretation of the framers of the Constitution he would not be eligible.

These were my suggestions for Perry’s campaign tunes:

Rick Perry for President – you choose his new
theme song from Buddy Holly

1) – That’ll Be The Day
2) – Maybe Baby
3) – Rave On
4) – Think It Over
5) – It’s So Easy

So, Cruz says he wants to be rich and powerful and wants to rule the world. Should we laugh it off? Just a joke. And This coming from the son of a so called “christian evangelist.” Exactly what values did his father teach him? “Son, Christ wants you to become rich and powerful so you can rule the world?” You would think surely not, but in a sermon last year at an Irving, Texas, megachurch that helped elect Ted Cruz to the United States Senate, Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz indicated that his son was among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as “kings” to take control of all sectors of society, an agenda commonly referred to as the “Seven Mountains” mandate, and “bring the spoils of war to the priests”, thus helping to bring about a prophesied “great transfer of wealth”, from the “wicked” to righteous gentile believers.

I say this guy is a nut; who learned to manipulate others from his father who got rich from fleecing his flock. We do not want anyone like this anywhere near the White House. Show me a rich evangelist and I will show you a con man. Like father, like son.

Cruz’s father is a prosperity profit who believes his son will take over and transfer all the wealth in the world to a church, run by people like Cruz and his father. It does not sound as though their dreams are that far apart.

“a prosperity profit”

Probably a better spelling after all.

Reply
Hank January 26, 2016 at 10:56 am

A “Prosperity Profit” is a person who teaches that god rewards the righteous with earthly wealth and power. A common theme of their ministry is that if you contribute to their ministry god will return more than you contributed to you. That you show your faith in god to provide, by giving; and the more you contribute to their ministry the more god will reward you. It also explains why they are so wealthy.
Robert Tilton is one of the more well know examples of prosperity theology..
