Trump’s Thank You Tour vs. Obama’s Apology Tour

December 1, 2016

Written by Juliana Simone

Cincinnati, Ohio – In a commanding performance President-Elect Donald Trump, ruled this fifty minutes on a national broadcast. There was never a dull moment. Whether it was his clear agenda laid out as the next President of the United States, or his personal remarks on the mainstream media and their blatant bias towards him throughout his run which made the large audience boo out loud, he ruled this public address.  Many of his comments made the crowd burst out in cheers: USA! USA! USA!

Taking the stage in a state whose Governor, John Kasich, would not endorse the Republican Presidential nominee or attend his nomination at the national state convention held in Ohio earlier this year, and whose fellow officers including their Secretary of the State continue to display sour grapes, voters made it clear they loved their President-Elect, Donald J. Trump. After thanking Ohio for his win in their state, Trump mentioned he had no support from Ohio’s Republican top level going into this battle, and pointed out he won Ohio by almost ten points, which is almost unheard of in politics.

It would be amazing to see Kasich or any his administration get re-elected. Any ambitious Republican in Ohio should challenge Kasich for the nomination during their next Governor election. They most likely will be rewarded not only with the opportunity to be on the ballot but to also become the next Governor of Ohio.

For any Republicans who doubted he was the man for this time, or liberals who thought he was the opposite, this speech should have at least enlightened half of his detractors. If not, those doubts reside within their own selves, not Trump or the millions of Americans who recognize what he brings to the table as a leader and patriot.

The clear difference here between the exiting President of the United States and the President-Elect, is how Barack Hussein Obama chose his initial months as POTUS to go on an apology tour, where he flew around the world to basically tell the world, America should be held accountable for its actions, beliefs, history, and in his view, misguided freedom, so to speak.

Trump, is choosing to spend his initial months as America’s incoming President, in thanking voters, and the hard-working people of the United States for believing in him, their history, the vision of the Founding Fathers, and the future of their country. No apologies for freedom.

In regards to the network media at large, who wears their support for any democrat on their sleeves, Trump mused how on Election Day they kept making comments where traditional Republican states had maybe changed from red to blue, or further into the day were too close to call or after polls had closed, x amount of states were expected to go for Clinton, and even late into the evening, early morning hours, wouldn’t call the election for him because they just couldn’t believe he’d won.

Speaking to the people, openly and honestly, he clearly described what he faced as a candidate for America’s highest office, and maintained his remarks about the mainstream media and how they were bad people. “The extremely dishonest press,” he pointed out on the media stage as usual, “Extremely dishonest people,” he continued which incited enthusiastic boos from the audience, Trump asked, “How about when a major anchor who hosted a debate, started crying when she realized we won?” (Referring to ABC’s Martha Raddatz) “She doesn’t understand things will be much better,” he said after a pause.

With great zeal, the republican President-Elect cheered, “We won in a landslide!!” The crowd cheers.

He recollected how the liberal media said in a broadcast, “There’s no way Donald Trump can break the big blue wall.” With another passionate shout out to his fans, he mused, “We not only broke the wall, we shattered that sucker!” Cheers.

Observing on media’s comments post-Election Day, he reflected on an ESPN announcer who said that was the most exciting event I’ve ever seen. Trump mused, “this business is tougher than the NFL.”

A rogue Clinton supporter gets taken out of the room and Donald comments after the momentary ruckus, “They don’t know that Hillary lost a couple of weeks ago.” He observed how many protesters don’t even vote.

In addressing his Commerce appointee, Wilbur Ross, he cited how the liberal media complained this person was a billionaire, as if this was offensive. Trump asked his audience, “Well, he knows how to make money, right? We need that…” Trump basically described he could have hired someone who was knowledgeable but with no money, but that wouldn’t be the better choice by clear example.  In a statement yesterday, Trump said, “Wilbur Ross is a champion of American manufacturing and knows how to help companies succeed.”

He maintained his position that he would be hiring as reported the best killers for the cabinet…

Trump thanked his staggering number of votes from veterans, military and police. He added he was looking into the best person to head the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and make this a successful agency that truly helps veterans.

In terms of jobs, the President-Elect quoted job numbers and how they had dropped dramatically over a decade. Michigan, for example, went from 900K to 600K. Trump said, “Today we’re living through the greatest theft of American jobs.” He reminded viewers how he said throughout this campaign and maintains today in Flint, MI, residents used to make cars and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico, and now today, the cars are made in Mexico, and you can’t drink the water in Flint. Shaking his head, Trump said, “Gross incompetence.”

The President-Elect recently made notable news in saving 1,100 jobs in his Vice President-Elect Mike Pence’s home state of Indiana. Air-conditioning Company Carrier planned to move these factory positions to Mexico before Trump’s negotiations. He told Ohio “We’re going to remove the rust from the rust belt.”

Asking the audience how they felt about his recent comments about penalties for those who burned the American flag and if they agreed, he was met with mass cheers of “USA! USA! USA!” He proclaimed a new slogan that exuded brilliance in its simplicity and meaningfulness: “Buy America Hire America.”

President-Elect Trump also addressed many important issues facing the United States today – NAFTA, energy, infrastructure, taxes, Obamacare, terrorism and deepening the harbors that are being threatened right now worldwide.

Trump said that African-Americans gave him more votes than any Republican in some time, but the numbers still remain small as African-Americans still believe it’s the Democrat Party that has their best interest despite history. Trump did get one percent more than Romney with this group with 8% to Romney’s 7%. For the democrats, more importantly, Clinton was unable to achieve the numbers Obama did, receiving 88% of their vote to Obama’s 93%. Were African American voters for Obama voting more because of race or were the same voters for Trump voting more because they see him as more of an answer than Clinton and the same democrat agenda they’ve seen repeated for decades? Critics on one reason Clinton lost, is because she failed to garner the extra 5% of this demographic than Obama did during both campaigns.

Playing with the audience in this televised venue that was streaming to tens of millions if not more, he appealed to them to not let this information outside of the room, (wink) but his new Secretary of Defense, which would officially be announced on Monday, was going to be General James “Mad Dog” Mattis, someone as great as General Patton.

Parting words left by Trump appealed to people to come together. Calling for all citizens to unite he proclaimed, “We pledge allegiance to one flag, and that flag is the American flag. From now on, it’s going to be America First. America First.” He asked for all political persuasions to “join our movement” and to hope to see all of us working again; it was up to the will of Americans. He proudly stated it was Americans who dug out the Panama Canal and walked on the moon…he remarked how Americans today have been taught to think small but they needed to believe in America’s greatness once again.

In closing, he said, “we don’t know what the next page will read, but it will be great.” He humbly told his fellow Americans they were the captains – “You’re the movement. I’m the messenger.”

Update: United States of America Presidential Election 2016: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

 

Written by Juliana Simone

The Good:

trumppencecover-1468785971

Donald Trump. His speeches on policy, foreign and domestic, are factual and impressive, but, of course, the liberal media highlighted few clips from these addresses.

https://assets.donaldjtrump.com/Radical_Islam_Speech.pdf

Mike Pence. His running mate, the Governor of Indiana, has been a fine and articulate spokesman for Trump on the campaign trail, and clearly is a politician who serves Trump, his state and country well.

Trump supporters. Continued massive turnouts for any Trump rally or event throughout the nation, show the incredible devotion and enthusiasm to the candidate who wants to make America great again.

Trump’s children. All intelligent, polite, loyal, hard-working and professional, they continue to be an asset to Trump’s campaign and show how well-adjusted they are as young adults with Donald’s role as an attentive father. Additionally, Trump’s wife and ex-wives. Melania, Marla and Ivana all stand by Donald, support him, say good things about him and all agree what a good Dad he is to their children.

Conservative talk radio hosts. Each and every day they have divulged in great detail the crimes and misdemeanors Hillary Clinton is guilty of, where many legal experts agree she should be prosecuted and sentenced to time in jail.  They also observe her disinterest in America in terms of how our Forefathers fought to establish this country, as well as her genuine power-hungry zeal to establish the moniker of being the first female President, even though she could not be a worse choice for such a title. Clinton enthusiastically envisions what that role would bring her as long as it lasts, whether it’s more “celebrities” staying in the Lincoln bedroom, or more millions donated to the Clinton Foundation.

Conservative network television and radio hosts/columnists. Trump has gained the support of a number of influential political commentators: Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Larry Elder, Pat Buchanan, and David Limbaugh, albeit David noting his vote was for the lesser of two evils, to name but a few.

Ted Cruz. The Texas Senator has said he will vote for Trump despite differences during the primary contest that led to some negative exchanges. Cruz has stated publicly he will vote for the Republican nominee, noting how bad the alternative will be for the future of the Supreme Court among other vital issues he described in a list on his Facebook page.

https://www.facebook.com/tedcruzpage/posts/10154476728267464

Republican legislators and advocates voting for Trump. Dr. Ben Carson, Newt Gingrich, Former New York Mayor and AG Rudy Giuliani, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum(R-PA), Former Alaska Governor and VP candidate Sarah Palin, George P. Bush, and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

Jerry Falwell, Jr.  The son of the long-serving Christian pastor and conservative activist who was well known for his televised sermons, and founded Liberty University in Lynchberg, VA, before his death in 2007.  Falwell, Jr., now President of the University, recognizes the difference between Trump and Clinton and how it would affect millions of Christians in America and throughout the world. Public morality and people who want to follow their faith would clearly suffer under four years of Clinton, who has vowed to uphold the policies of President Barack Obama.

Chris Wallace. Though presumably one of the ninety-plus percent of journalists who contributed to the Clinton campaign, Wallace did the most respectable job in the final and third debate between the two candidates. Even with his pressing, Clinton failed to answer three essential questions but maintained her mechanical smile.

The Bad:

The Never-Trumpers. So-called Republicans who are on record for saying they will vote for establishment choice Hillary Clinton on Election Day, November 8th, rather than businessman Donald Trump, regardless of how much evidence points to why Hillary Clinton is perceivably the worst candidate nominated for America’s highest office. Though they continue in their opposition to their Party nominee, they agree Clinton would be bad for our nation if elected.

http://www.wnd.com/2016/09/hotter-than-hot-never-trumpers-skewered/

Here’s just some of them to record on this blog:

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell (R).  He voted for Obama, despite his weak record as a one-term U.S. Senator, background of community organizing and an often expressed disdain for America, regardless of the life of privilege he has lived here. Leaked emails from Powell show what he really feels about Hillary: “I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect,” the former secretary of state wrote Democratic donor Jeffrey Leeds on July 26, 2014. “A 70-year person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational, with a husband still d–kng bimbos at home (according to the NYP),” reads the explosive e-mail obtained by the Web site DCLeaks. (Hillary is actually 69) “Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris. I told you about the gig I lost at a University because she so overcharged them they came under heat and couldn’t [pay] any fees for awhile. I should send her a bill,” Powell griped. “Wanted to get away with it.” “Her instincts can be terrible.”

Sore losers:

The Bush family. Though not all are on record for saying they’ll vote for the scandal riddled Mrs. Clinton, but some are, including Former President of the United States George H.W. Bush (R-41), his wife, former First Lady, Barbara Bush, and Former First Lady Laura Bush, daughter-in-law to George and Barbara, whom many held with great respect until she made this statement. Now her estimated character may be reconsidered. Former Florida Governor and 2016 candidate for the nomination for President 2016, Jeb Bush, has stated he will not vote for either Trump or Clinton. Jeb Bush, going into the first long-benched candidate debate in August of 2015, had raised a considerable treasure chest of donations in his bid. Apparently, money is not always enough to win the title one covets.

Ohio Governor John Kasich (R). With winning only his state of Ohio during the entire Republican primary, he somehow yet still perceived himself as the next President of the United States. He did not show professionalism in declining to attend the National Republican Convention in his own state this year, nor would he endorse nominee Trump. Kasich recently had another 30 seconds of fame by providing the liberal media with a sound bite media gladly used with his remarking he did not know if he could vote for Trump. He might be the biggest baby of all.

Former President of the United States Republican nominee and Massachusetts Governor, Mitt Romney, who actually spent and raised money to try and ensure that Trump both was not the nominee, and after failing this objective, could not win the election.

Romney’s former running mate, House Speaker Ryan, has also failed to support Trump from the beginning, briefly wavered, and now has run back to what he perceives as the safety of moderate Republicans, who think if they vote for Clinton, they can still keep their jobs and two-faced machinations of politics intact, with the establishment keeping Washington, D.C. the way it is now and has been for a very long time. Not for the voter, the taxpayer, the small businessman, veterans, women, seniors, college students, patriots, those born in debt today and those struggling with debt, true Republicans, Unaffiliated, moderate Democrats, and other ignored castoffs who are not in bed with this self-serving group on hand, but just for those in the government beltway.

{Editor:} Ryan has publicly stated he voted early and voted for Trump. If this is true, that is commendable and noted.

More-Conservative-Than-Though political commentators, writers, and editors. The Weekly Standard and EIC Bill Kristol, National Review, Glenn Beck, television host and political commentator, and Jonah Goldberg, syndicated political columnist and author, {former Congressman Chris Shays, the last standing Republican U.S. Representative to serve all of New England and who made a bid for the Connecticut U.S. Senate seat in 2014, and veteran columnist George Will,} to name but a few.

Republican voters who had another candidate they wanted to become the nominee.  This group has never been able to get over their loss. Sour grapes rule the day for these people, and apparently it’s more important for them to have their day and revenge and see Trump lose, even if it means electing someone from the opposite party who plans to implement more bad and continued Obama policy, and seeing the Supreme Court filled with appointees that would disregard The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States.

The polls: Daily updated by the liberal media with an agenda to dishearten the people not voting for the candidate they are shilling for, in this election year, Clinton. The skewed polls are largely swayed by demographics and oversampling of callers who will provide them with the answer they want to count, as to who the candidate they will be voting for on Election Day, to bolster their results and allow them to continue to falsely inform the public on who is really ahead. The polls considered to be the most reputable, and correct post-Election Day are Rasmussen and the L.A. Times.

The Ugly:

The network and liberal media at large who threw away objective professional journalism decades ago. They have failed to cover any of the incredibly important news stories concerning Hillary Clinton that they would have broadcast day in day out if it were her Republican opponent. An embarrassing example of what used to be considered news, at best. Setting the bar low, they’ve had to dig into the lowest depths of extremely old hearsay to find anything negative to say about Trump, when they have mountains of solid evidence concerning Clinton’s serious illegal activities. The media’s desperate smear campaign against Donald’s alleged moves on women he claims to never even have met, pale against the more serious and credible negative situations President Bill Clinton carried out with women while Governor of Arkansas and in the White House.

{Editor:} Their blackout of any positive news on Donald Trump has been astounding, an amazing thing to bear witness to in this day and age. No mention of Trumps huge support which has never wavered right up until Election Day, can be shown in this photo which was only distributed through social media.

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) considered to be both a nominee for President and V.P. choice for Clinton, best known for saying she was a descendant of the Cherokee Indians until fact-checking showed this to be barely true by a stretch, if at all. Her checking the American Indian heritage box, however, helped her get hired as a minority at Harvard. She is the perfect spokesperson and colleague for Mrs. Clinton, who has quite a long history of lies herself. Warren, going lower than low in her stump speeches this election year, spends her time insulting opponent Trump. The other day, in referencing Trump’s calling Clinton ‘a nasty woman’ in the third debate, after Clinton made a derogatory remark about Trump, she shrilly addressed voters and declared that nasty women vote, in calling these women to action to vote for Hillary.

Clinton running mate Tim Kaine. After watching the Vice President debate, and hearing any of his soundbites as he stumps for Clinton, the man has shown he couldn’t be a worse second-in-line to the President of the United States. With Clinton’s health being a topic, this is a notable concern voters should consider.

{Editor:} President Barack Hussein Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama. Six days before the election, desperation is setting in among the liberal leadership. Today, Obama actually was reaching back into scare tactic pages of the Democrat Party play book, trying to frighten needy voters with the false narrative that if Trump is elected as President, on day one he will stop welfare checks, Medicare checks, and stop assistance for African American youth’s entry into college. Seriously? Playing the people as he did since 2008, if not earlier, like Hillary, he is simply lying. Stopping large Government programs like welfare, Medicare and Affirmative Action, are not decided by the President alone. It would be an enormous task to discontinue any of these entitlements, and they would never pass even if suggested by a sitting President. Despite this fact, Trump’s current policies as a candidate for our country’s highest office, as well as his record as a businessman who hires people from every background, make clear he wants to help people not hurt them. Michelle Obama, suddenly believes Hillary Clinton is the most divine person to ever run for office in our nation’s history, despite a litany of previous statements when Clinton was challenging Obama for the nomination in 2008.

A Hillary Clinton Presidency. For the first time in the history of the United States of America, someone could get elected to our country’s highest office as someone who should be serving in time for prison. Here is one list to review, from fine veteran and former Florida Congressman Allen West. http://www.allenbwest.com/matt-palumbo/need-know-fbis-report-hillary

A comment on West’s post includes this link: http://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?path=%2Fprelim%40title18%2Fpart1%2Fchapter101&edition=prelim

Even the New York Times is having to publish a smidgen of the multiple unethical or illegal activities Hillary Clinton has engaged in, however much they can polish it up.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/26/us/politics/wikileaks-hillary-clinton-emails.html?_r=0

The latest WikiLeaks shows what Democrat National Committee Chair Donna Brazile and Clinton both knew about people that were hired to disrupt Trump rallies and instigate fights with Trump supporters to make Trump voters look unhinged.  Two 16-minute videos recently released by Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe after a yearlong undercover investigation can be seen here: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/oct/18/undercover-video-shows-democrats-saying-they-hire-/ Trump who has had thousands of people show up at his rallies, compared to Clinton and running mate Kaine, who consistently produce much smaller crowds, needed to have some kind of negative attachment to this spectacular story of turnout and attendance. This is what the Democrat hire, now fired, was sent out to do.

We would also have to deal with potential complications her husband-in-name-only, William Jefferson Clinton (D-42) would bring, who was impeached as President of the United States, lost his law license as a result, and was not without scandal. His social behavior patterns potentially make him problematic if put in the White House again even as the spouse of Executive-In-Chief.

Hillary’s record as Secretary of State, is also a problem. There is considerable hard evidence that shows Clinton’s actions and failures while serving as SOTS, doomed the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, to being brutally tortured and murdered, despite numerous appeals for help, at the hands of experienced Islamic soldiers, whom she claimed at the time were protestors who were enraged by an obscure video.

Her evident failures show her foreign policy would be a disaster, especially if her plan if elected is to continue as her predecessor, Barack Obama, she chooses to lead from behind, and continue to alienate the leaders of countries formerly on good terms with the United States. Rather than making amends with Russia’s President Putin, China or North Korea, perhaps Clinton could continue to give more millions to Iran to build nuclear weapons. The Iran Deal, struck by Obama, which involved bringing plane loads of cash secretly at night to Iran, could now easily be shared with terrorists like the Hamas by Islamic leaders. This deal, clearly a direct threat to Israel, is very likely unconstitutional, because it was a treaty and not a deal, that was never authorized by the United States Congress. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/438804/iran-ransom-payment-barack-obama-tried-be-sneaky

Obamacare, has gone further south in recent days, and the middle class are going to be punished with high rate increases to somehow work out now in their monthly budgets, whether they naively voted for Obama or not.

Clinton wants to bring into the United States a million Syrian Refugees. Even if one percent of these are ISIS soldiers, perceivably thousands of deaths could occur from assaults in schools to shopping malls, to airlines and skyscrapers.

http://www.usapoliticstoday.com/hillary-vows-allow-million-muslim-refugees-united-states-first-term/

The U.S. Military, gutted by Obama down to mere fractions of what it was under President Ronald Reagan, would continue to be weak under Clinton, who holds the same feelings as Obama about our armed forces and their role as international protectors throughout the world. Obama and Clinton also share the same general disdain for the police forces.

With this in mind, American citizens should be concerned about Second Amendment rights. The Democrat Party is obsessed with anti-gun legislation and regardless of what they say on camera when asked, they would be more than happy to see all guns taken away from countrymen who keep them to protect their homes against invasion, while they as elected officials, all have 24 hour security surrounding them and their families to ensure their safety. The hypocrisy never ends with Democrats.

As for the First Amendment, consider that gone, as well, if Clinton is elected. Conservative talk radio, newspapers, magazines, and blogs will all be stamped out like a mere spark in damp ground, whether through administrative decree or by the newly appointed Supreme Court justices who would now have a strong progressive majority. For those who direct films, produce television shows, record music, or write books whose message is deemed deplorable, this material will not be safe from Presidential intervention. For those whose message fits the liberal democrat agenda, this material will get the green light, and the privileged lifestyle of being driven around in limousines, flying around in private jets – using that horrible fossil fuel ostracized by the left – and living a life the majority of Americans and the rest of the world will never know.  The press releases and public appearances that preach on the surface concern for those not as fortunate, will really just provide a fake exterior to the true interiors that hold a true dismissal of the have-nots who won’t ever get an invitation to spend the night in the Lincoln bedroom under a Clinton administration.

These final two weeks before Election Day, still show Trump talking to his large crowds about the issues and Clinton avoiding any of the issues or addressing the many scandals that surround her. She instead continues to go low and just insult her opponent Donald Trump at every appearance. Trump, with endless amounts of energy, continues to easily make four different campaign stops a day. Clinton, needed to take a week off before the third and final debate to prepare. Maybe she just doesn’t have the energy or the good bill of health only her own personal doctor has declared. Or, maybe she thinks she already has it in the bag, and is already disinterested in mingling with the general public.

Updated: U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) – Announces His Vote for Donald Trump: The Right Choice

September 23, 2016

Written by Juliana Simone

Donald J. Trump, Republican Nominee for President of the United States (l) and Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (r)   {photo: Slate.com}

 

Texas U.S. Senator and 2016 presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, made the correct choice this Friday, in announcing he will be voting for Republican Nominee Donald J. Trump to be our country’s next President of the United States.

Cruz cited the two main reasons based on six vital issues in his statement as to why he’ll be voting for Trump on November 8th, is because, one, he wanted to keep his promise that he made  during the original debate with his colleagues over a year ago, that he will support whoever is the nominee, and two, because Trump will sign legislation from Congress, if Republicans still hold the majority, to get rid of Obamacare, the Affordable Health Care Act that has affected millions of Americans negatively.

The other four issues Cruz felt could not be managed without harm to our country, were energy, immigration, national security and the freedom of the Internet. He also stressed the importance of the Supreme Court and the importance of appointing Judges who will uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The mainstream media’s talking points are choosing the go to print headline word, “stunning,” in terms of his decision.

Not so, in that it is the right decision, both as a Republican who truly supports his Party and the forthcoming agenda, as well as the many voters from all across the country, who want to “make America great again,” as Trump’s campaign slogan declares. Cruz, is an impressive man and U.S. Senator who should not be left on the sidelines, if Trump takes the White House this November.

Cruz, well known for his educational achievements, earned two Ivy League college degrees.  With a major in public policy, he graduated cum laude from Princeton University, and went on to earn a degree from Harvard Law School. Renowned for his debating skills, where he excelled at Princeton and Harvard on a national level, he is both admired and loathed for being too smart for the room among his Senate colleagues today.

As a child born to an American mother and Cuban father, he was raised for a few years in Canada before moving to Texas. He attended private schools before going on to higher education. After earning his juris doctor degree from Harvard, he went on to serve as a law clerk, notably for Chief Justice of the United States, William Rehnquist. Cruz then worked for a law firm that dealt with the NRA (National Rifle Association) and in preparing testimony needed for democrat President William J. Clinton’s impeachment.

Perceivably, a difficult thing for Ted Cruz today, in stating he would be voting for his party nominee on Election Day, Donald J. Trump, other than the well-known barbs exchanged between the two competing candidates since debates began in latter 2015, must be the fact he worked on George W. Bush’s Presidential campaign in 1999. The majority of the Bush family have publicly declared they will not be supporting Trump on Election Day, and will be voting for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who many perceive as the worst Presidential candidate and nominee in our country’s history. {Editor’s note: more on this later}

The pressure from the Bush family must have been applied to Cruz, to not say anything publicly positive all the way until Election Day about his rival, who he came second to after the primaries by a large margin.

The Bush’s own namesake, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who also was a candidate for the presidential nomination this election year, dropped out early with only a handful of delegates, despite having the largest purse on hand in terms of fundraising, due to his family’s influence.

For Ted Cruz to make this proclamation today that he would be supporting Donald Trump and casting his vote for him on November 8th, shows he is many things.

A true Republican, who puts his Party before bitter losses or business-as-usual safety; a true Patriot, who as an incredibly intelligent man, sees the future of our country and how badly it would fail, and continue to fail, with a Clinton and former Obama administration, economically, domestically and internationally; A true gentleman, who perhaps acknowledges today however hard fought, and with whatever choices of words were used to win the nomination, positive or negative, Trump won with many odds against him; and a true visionary, who understands his place in politics is very needed.

Under a Trump administration, Senator Cruz can be appointed to many things where he will continue his long career as a valiant statesman, that defines his importance and career even more.

Trump’s Vice Presidential nominee, Indiana’s Governor Mike Pence, played a role in Cruz announcing his support for Trump.  Pence and Cruz exchanged multiple messages, spoke at length over the phone and then again in person, when Pence visited Capitol Hill a few weeks ago, a source close to Pence said.

Donald Trump had this to say about his fellow Republican’s support:

“I am greatly honored by the endorsement of Senator Cruz,” Trump said in a statement obtained by CNN. “We have fought the battle and he was a tough and brilliant opponent. I look forward to working with him for many years to come in order to make America great again.”
