Mike Huckabee Backers Attack Ted Cruz’s Faith

BELOW THE BELT? YES …

Supporters of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee – desperate to keep their candidate relevant in a state he won eight years ago – have decided to attack one of his GOP presidential rivals on a deeply personal level.

According to BuzzFeed’s McKay Coppins, a pro-Huckabee political action committee will launch an ad in early-voting Iowa this week seeking to portray U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas as “a charlatan feigning intense Christian devotion to win votes.”

The ad features two women sitting together and talking about Cruz prior to attending a Bible study.

“He doesn’t tithe?” one woman says to the other, referring to Cruz. “A millionaire that brags about his faith all the time?”

“Just what we need – another phony,” the other woman responds.

Pursuing America’s Greatness – the group running the ad – will put $400,000 behind the spot over the next six days.

Here’s the ad …

Ouch …

While this website ultimately decided to endorse the candidacy of Donald Trump, we’ve always felt Cruz was a cut above most of the others in the “Republican” field.  Sure he can be a tad sanctimonious at times, but he’s got a far better fiscal record than most of his GOP competitors.  That’s especially true of Huckabee – who has long occupied the leftward end of the “Republican” spectrum on dollars and cents issues.

As for Cruz and what he believes – or how much he tithes – well, that’s between him and his maker.   It’s really none of our business.  Or your business.  Or the business of these two catty “Christian” bitches.

In fact we would encourage these two moralizing hypocrites to bone up on the gospel of Matthew (chapter seven, verse five) or the epistle of Paul to the Romans (chapter three, verse twenty-three) during their next Bible study.

As for Huckabee, we would encourage him to salvage some dignity by dropping out of the 2016 race before he embarrasses himself further.

Wouldn’t it be better to talk about the POSITIVE things a candidate wants to do rather than bashing another candidate? All this bickering between candidates is getting tiresome and certainly not advancing a conservative agenda!

Huckabee can voice such logical, common sense ideas for what Government should be and then turn right around and ruin himself with unnecessary religious nuttery.

Can’t disagree with that but what confounds me is that Trump has openly stated he has done nothing to ask forgiveness for even though he has admitted he committed adultery (a mortal sin) and yet a man of the cloth like Huckabee does not have the backbone to call Trump out on such a basic belief of Christian faith.
I’ve lost what little respect I’ve had for Huckabee due to this.
I never dreamed I’d post this but Trump just might be the AntiChrist.

I up-vote sometimes not because I agree 100% (that is rare even among friends), but to show appreciation to someone posting their honest thoughts about a subject, especially when it is without personal attacks. I don’t look for any of these guys to be my spiritual leader but rather to best possible manager of the US. Yes, if a guy has demonstrated good character or morals, I appreciate that, but I can tolerate some weakness if the strengths needed are there.

Huckabee the Huckster just wants to make sure everyone knows his faith-dick is bigger than Ted’s, even though the both of them undoubtedly lie in the “below two inches” club.

A man and his wife were arguing about who was
better… males or females… the argument turned into a pissing contest… literally when the wife claimed that she could piss higher up a wall than her husband could!

The husband being a man and loving a challenge accepted… so they went behind their garage… where the wife proceed to drop her pants and began to piss against the garage wall. The husband broke into hysterics when the best that she could do was only about 8 inches up the wall.

Next the husband unzipped his fly… pulled out his “manhood” and just before he started his wife screamed “Wait honey… no hands!”

Friday evening a man gets off the bus in front of his house. His wife asks why he didn’t drive his car.

“Well, you know I’ve been trying to sell it for a couple of months now and just today a guy is interested in buying it. But he wanted to drive it over the weekend and will let me know Monday if he’ll buy it.”

“But can you trust him?”

“He told me I could trust him. He says he’s an elder in the Presbyterian Church, although I really don’t know what an elder is.”

“Dear, an elder is the same as your being a Deacon in our church.”

“Oh, no! I’ve lost my car!”

Silly time is over.Best wishes Rocky.

J.Smith fl ? p • 8 minutes ago

A defamation suit on will be filed claiming that certain ‘contributors/bloggers’ publicly reflected J.Smith as a pedophile, showing his family in a bad light by posting false and inaccurate statements about the them. A filed the motion to compel Fits News and Disqus to reveal certain ‘contributors/bloggers’ registration information.No worries,you are on the list.Rocky and several others.

FCC is indeed a criminal matter with the criminal allegations of pedophilia by “Electronic contact” meaning any transfer of signs, signals, writings, images, sounds, data, intelligence, or information of any nature transmitted in whole or in part by any device, system, or mechanism including, but not limited to, a wire, radio, computer, electromagnetic, photoelectric, or photo-optical system.

FitsNews and Disqus are not being sued.They will be just be asked to turn over requested registration information in pursuit of the truth.

While I vehemently support free speech and open communication, we believe individuals publishing comments as facts ought to be held to a simple standard of truth in regards to the very serious and criminal allegations of child molestation and pedophilia. I have turned this matter over to our attorney and law enforcement.

Have a good day.I am no longer a contributor on FitsNews.I will miss some of you.

No one knows who “J.Smith” is because “J.Smith” does not comment here regularly. “J.Smith” probably isn’t even his real name anyways.

All I know is that my name is flip, I support universal health care, abortion, gay marriage, Bernie Sanders, the Democrat party, #BlackLivesMatter, a path to citizenship for undocumented aliens, Barack Obama, and that I love my Terry bear. LMAO!!!

I have documentation on him calling Rocky a pedophile as well as insults leveled at his wife and child. I also have mounds of documentation on insults he has hurled at Boz for the past month and a half.

Even though his comments show as deleted Disqus keeps a record of every comment through their system. They will show up in discovery no doubt, all tied to his IP address. We’ll even be able to see him posting under different accounts on the same day, from one claiming to be talking to the D.A. to the other impersonating me and calling Rocky a pedophile.

Nothing will come of this. If someone does get a knock on their door though they can let me know and I’ll send them all the information that I have saved on this troll. They can grin ear to ear as the judge reads them and dismisses the case.

Ted Cruz is charged as “a charlatan feigning intense Christian devotion to win votes.” Is that untrue? When you make religion part of your political campaigns, stand by for attacks on religious grounds. I think the word “charlatan” was coined for Ted Cruz, but not because of his religious views.

Reply
Terry January 27, 2016 at 1:40 pm

Ted Cruz does not tithe because god is rewarding him with money. If he gave more to the church god would just reward him with more money, so why not just keep it and cut out the middle man. This is totally fair ad. Just like bringing up infidelity when people run on “family values.” Cruz is a typical Republican. Tell them what they want to hear to get elected.

Huckabee complained recently that a key supporter of his had switched his contributions to Trump. He was very petty and bitter. He continues to be so. It is possible to contribute to Christian causes that are not tax deductible non-profits. I did that for years. No one ever knew about it but me and God, just as it should be.

These ladies, and I use the term loosely, will you show us your tax filings and your donations. Or, maybe find out what was going on in someone’s life at the time. Maybe, paying off school debts, money borrowed to help another family member. Raising a young family, and having to use your own assets to fight off a billionaire in a political run. Can you spell hypocrite.

Maybe he gives more than a tithe which in that case he would not be tithing. People should not stick their noses where they don’t belong.
