The Supreme Court is about to go bonkers. Liberal bonkers to the dark side for 50 or 60 years. The damage to the country would be catastrophic. The rule of law would be an arbitrary line that would get crossed with every “ruling”. And Ted Cruz and his minions have decided to play games with America’s future.
Not that Cruz is that much of a kingmaker. He is more of a grand-stander. But he has a considerable faction of so-called conservative media pundits who are still reminiscing about the primaries and how Cruz was Jefferson and Washington all rolled into one Cuban-Canadian, roly-poly, slick haired, fork tongued meatball. Their love of Cruz is akin to the Zika virus. You know it’s out there and you were hoping that it would go away. But it (Cruz) hasn’t.
There are stories now almost daily, about how Cruz and his national team of delegate thieves are planning a revolt at the convention. Add to this, the neocon yammering of Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell who seem quite content with handing the presidency to Hillary Clinton. These alliances aren’t really alliances. They are separate factions working side by side to create doubt, chaos and tons of anger among actual voters who rejected Cruz and the rest of the God forsaken establishment.
But if Ted Cruz really is the smartest man in history according to the likes of Glenn Beck and Mark Levin, he ought to be a little worried about his country. Some would say that Cruz only cares about 2018. That is when he can be re-elected to the senate and position himself for a presidential run in 2020. With Hillary in the oval office, Cruz can pontificate, grandstand and filibuster to his heart’s content. And those fading talk show hosts can applaud his courage as he accomplishes absolutely nothing.
So if you were thinking that Ted Cruz would eventually come to his senses and endorse Donald Trump, think again. Cruz and his stable of Kool Aid drinkers don’t seem to have any senses. They are consumed with talking about the Constitution and the Founding Fathers. Those pursuits make no sense in light of the fact that Trump is willing to go full Monty conservative on the Supreme Court, the economy and on immigration.
Trump is also willing to take on the media and the special interests. And that may be where the problem lies. Trump has rendered much of the media pointless, including conservative talk radio. And the special interests own the media including talk radio.
Ted Cruz would wink and nod at these people as he slimes his way into the role of just another Washington politician. Cruz would placate the gravy train while sounding all Constitutional and Christian without actually being any different from the rest of the D.C. Cartel.
Ted Cruz needs a prescription for common sense pills that he can take when his mind starts to wander. Any time he dreams of being the president or giving one of those speeches where terms like “trumpertantrum” are born, he needs to take two common sense caplets and then he needs to stop talking.
The problem with all of this is that Ted Cruz holds a few cards. He has a lot of delegates. He has a team willing to revolt. He is still getting free publicity from his conservative talk buddies. And he has the same ego as Barack Obama. And he believes his own lies. He thinks that he can destroy Trump and swoop in at some point to ‘save the day’.
Ted Cruz has become nothing more than a foul stench. A pungent odor. There were plenty of politicians who came to their senses to help the country in the past. So much hangs in the balance. And Ted Cruz is still focused on Ted Cruz. This is no time for ego or posturing. This is a time for choosing. And Ted Cruz needs to lay down his fake and ineffective weaponry and wholeheartedly throw his support and his delegates to Donald Trump.
If he wants to be re-elected in 2018, it’s the only play that will work. Otherwise, his career will die a slow and painful death. And that may be the only consolation we have knowing that a third term of liberal hell is underway.
