Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina – whose presidential campaign gained some modest traction last year before leveling off during the early primaries – has endorsed the White House bid of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

“Ted Cruz is a fearless fighter for our constitutional rights,” Fiorina said in a statement endorsing Cruz.  “He has spent his life protecting Americans’ God-given liberties, and he has always stood by his word. Unlike the status-quo political class in D.C., Ted Cruz didn’t cower when he got to Washington – he stood unequivocally for the American people.  I know Ted, and he’ll do the same as president.”

Neither Fiorina’s statement – nor Cruz’s gushing response to it – made any mention of current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.  Nor were there really even any veiled references to Trump, although Cruz did reference that his campaign would “continue to unite conservatives.”

Cruz’s campaign is literally the last place the anti-Trump wing of the “Republican” party can go …

Their early choice, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, dropped out of the race last month and their current choice – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio – is in the process of similarly humiliating defeat.

I knew there was something about her I just did not like and did not trust. Another NWO lackey shows their colors and supports a fellow globalist.

Trump is a 33 degree Fremason who has belonged to the CFR and the Illuminati for decades. The NWO can’t wait to have one of their silly puppets in the WH. Best of all, the poor stupid sheeple are cheering him by the thousands. Put an few images of that up on TV and even more idiots sheeple join in, no matter how anti-America Trump blatantly is.

CorruptionInColumbia March 9, 2016 at 6:30 pm

FWIW, they’ve had their puppets in the WH at least since the day Daddy Bush first took office, with no interruption in continuity. Had John McCain or Mittens Romney won over 0bama, they STILL would have maintained a presence of their puppets in the White House. Trump is the only possibility we have that we will not continue to keep those entities’ puppets in the WH.

IF by some chance, it turns out he is but one more of their puppets, we were destined to be phucked, anyway. Trump is our only and last hope to keep the NWO/globalist/Illuminati scum out of the WH.

Say that after New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, Atlanta, Charlotte maybe even Columbia and other cities are reduced to ashes and you, your children and/or grandchildren puke their guts out over their fallen hair and through their bleeding gums because of radiation sickness within a few weeks (if you weren’t fortunate enough to be vaporized that is) after those cities and other targets have been hit and a radioactive cloud envelopes what’s left of the United States because your boy Trump thought he could bullshit and/or bluff the Russians and/or the Chinese like he has those gullible enough to go for his bullshit

CorruptionInColumbia March 10, 2016 at 11:54 am

You are joking, right? The Bushes and 0bama have been having a field day, antagonizing the Russians and the Chinese. Thankfully, 0bama has backed off and (grudgingly) let the Russians do the heavy lifting with regard to hurting ISIS, since he won’t allow our armed forces to do much more than be targets in the Middle East. Note: this is not a disparagement of our brave troops, but of their country’s “leadership” that sees lots of bombing missions where the bombers frequently return with the same payload they departed with, when going after ISIS targets.

The Clintons were so busy taking bribes from the Russians AND the Chinese, they probably weren’t considered much of a threat.

Trump and Putin have expressed mutual respect and admiration for each-other. I hope this can be expanded to where our countries are one day allies, rather than adversaries.

The Lindsey Grahams, John McCains, and like scumboli only want war with the rest of the world as it enhances the coffers of the almighty MIC.

No I’m not fucking joking.
I wouldn’t joke about something as horrible as nuclear war.
I truly hope and pray it wouldn’t happen if that draft-avoiding lying sack of shit Trump becomes Prez someone’s gonna call his bluff and then all bets will be off.
Don’t worry though your boy Trump will be alive broadcasting from Air Force One while you and your loved ones are either dead or wish they were.
You know as well as I do that sack of shit will bolt for safety as soon as the shit hits the fan and leave gullible types like you holding the bag.
Hey, I’ll be in the same boat as you but at least before I go under, I’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that one of your final thoughts will be “I shouldn’t have voted for that fake-assed coward”

CorruptionInColumbia March 11, 2016 at 2:32 pm

And 0bama, Hitlery, Cruz, or Rubio, wouldn’t do the same exact thing, only faster? Really?

<> March 11, 2016 at 3:35 pm

Trump and the NWO are hand in hand. If Trump becomes president expect the Obama/Clinton agenda to move along unimpeded. After all, it’s Trump’s good golf buddy, Bill, who encouraged Trump to run. Surely, as a favor to his likeminded liberal elite running buddies. It’s funny watching stupid sheeple latch on to this fraud, as if he’s sincerely conservative. They are truly to dumbest of the most ignorant!

sparklecity March 11, 2016 at 2:26 pm

Actually if you cared to do your homework you would know that we are making steady progress against ISIL but you’re too busy believing everything that that lying exaggerating sack of shit Trump is spouting off about

CorruptionInColumbia March 11, 2016 at 2:34 pm

Of course, you wouldn’t believe everything 0bama is telling us, even when he is lying through his teeth as he has done constantly since taking office?

true blue March 9, 2016 at 3:14 pm

All I can say is that I held HP stock when she was CEO. I lost my shirt, I held on almost to the end, believing her and I am many lost a lot of money. She was not a good CEO. The result is in the pudding. Thank God she did not endorse Trump.

The statement I received from Fiorina DID mention Trump and, with what I’m seeing as time goes on, it’s beginning to become more obvious:

“Here’s the truth: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are two sides of the same coin. Trump has made billions buying politicians and their influence, and Hillary Clinton has made millions selling her influence to people like Trump.” Carly Fiorina

Reminds me of the Mungo Company and their relationship with school districts… using our tax dollars to build new schools — a major asset in selling new subdivisions. Some (like Trump) might call that “capitalism.” I call it highway robbery. The Mungo’s should know better.

shifty henry March 9, 2016 at 7:13 pm

What is the name of that foul-mouthed brother of his? Some years back I had occasion to deal with him on certain matters regarding the source of funding used for building houses in one of the subdivisions in St. Andrews. He refused to give me a straight answer — the best I got was, “I don’t really know where that money comes from.” Riiiiight..!!

The feckless endorsing the hopeless.

Sic, you’re so soft on Carly…”modest traction?”

Hank March 9, 2016 at 5:16 pm

How much of that $21 million she took from the HP workers she fired when they fired her ass will she contribute. Talk about welfare and takers. Who do you know gets paid when they screw up and get fired? How many HP jobs could that 21 million have saved?

Roger March 9, 2016 at 5:25 pm

The establishment has already lost, time to cut there losses get one their boys to back Trump and beg for a VP slot.

Squishy123 March 10, 2016 at 12:54 pm

This is about as meaningful as an endorsement from Lindsey Graham and Jeb Bush.
