      Once again, Ted Cruz gets caught being a liar and a total hypocrite.
      Is voting to fast track Obamatrade conservative to you? TPP
      How about voting for the Corker bill, enabling Iran?
      Is lobbying the senate for a 500% increase in H1B visas and a doubling of green cards a conservative move?
      There’s a video of him doing that above.
      How many billionaires are backing Cruz these days?
      Sheldon Adelson
      Toby Neugebauer
      Robert Mercer (11 million and counting)
      The Wilks brothers
      Ian Reisner
      Mati Weiderpas
      And others too.
      His wife Heidi works for Goldman Sachs and is an active CFR member too.

        Couldn’t have said it better myself. People have NO idea who Ted Cruz is and how dangerous he would be for this country. We need Donald Trump – he is the last hope for America!!!

      • hocuspocus13

        …and Ted Cruz does not have an American Birth Certificate…

        Unless Ted Cruz wants to unseal his records and prove us wrong…😎

      • freewill2

        He also just put Jebs brother Beil Bush on his financial team, he was involved in the 1991 savings and loan scandal..Cruz was on the 2000 Bush campaign, and Cruz joined in with the Rhinos and Dems to blame Trump for the outbreak in Chicago

    Mexico’s Immigration Law:….MEXICANS MUST REMAIN THE MAJORITY RACE IN MEXICO!!!!
    http://humanevents.com/2006/05/08/mexicos-immigration-law-lets-try-it-here-at-home/
    Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics,”when foreigners are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when “they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.”

  • Robert Gehrking

    ONLY WHITE PEOPLE HAVE TO CHANGE THE MAJORITY IN OUR COUNTRIES………
    BLACKS/BROWNS ARE SO JEALOUS OF US SUPERIOR WHITES….IT DRIVES THEM INSANE….
    JUST LOOK AT CRAZY KANYE WEST….HE HATES TAYLOR SWIFT…WHITE JEALOUSY OVERLOAD!

    • Jean

      Who tan to the point of getting skin cancer or burn their skin trying to be darker, who is coping black women with braids and extentions their hair, who is getting lip injections to get bigger lips, who getting butt injections trying to get big as*ex like blacks, who taking all the black men from black women, who love all the black music… MAN PLEASE!!…No one is jealous of whites…Give me a break!…Just ignorance..😅😅

      • Kate

        but 99.5% of caucs want to throw up at the sight of – and majorly because of the accusing attitude – its like cancer in that culture. Anything stand out that is different than the norm. Big lips, braids… are a attempt to get attn. it doesn’t look good at all. – Unless its Bo Derrick – any thing would look good on her.

      • JJ

        @ jean ….I love your comment. Yes they be hating cause they are plain no style what’s so ever. Ignorant people!

    • Ellyn

      • liberalssuck

        Ellen, You have a mouse in your pocket?
        You are qualified to speak for NO ONE but yourself.Do not use “we”.
        If you see something you don’t like here no one is stopping you from getting on a plane and leaving…..
        see ya…

    Donald Trump says he’ll be at a rally at 7, shows up at 8. Because TRUMP’s time is more valuable than that of the serfs. Not to mention that he already scheduled and rescheduled this event once, being too afraid of the liberal, inner-city Utah minorities to speak at the state fairgrounds after dark. Oh, and he was unwilling to actually debate his opponents (likely because he tends to lose debates, and the fewer opponents left, the more time he is actually forced to defend his idiocy), resulting in said debate being cancelled. Then he came and gave a Hitler rally-style speech to his ignorant, brown-shirt supporters because he know they’re the only ones with low enough IQ’s to listen to his nonsense without questioning it. What a tool.

    • Frank Rombo

      You are not very smart. Watch one of his rally’s in Cleveland, Ohio An African American pastor makes a great speech and endorses Trump. Trump is not racist and anyone that makes a statement like that is very ignorant.

  • Mormons Love Liars

    How can the man behind “Trump University” talk about education? Oh, and how can this blatant liar say Mexico will pay for the wall and they understand that? Current and former Mexican presidents have REFUSED to pay for anything to do with his ignorant plan? What kind of foolish, inbred, low-IQ idiots can swallow this nonsense?

    • badelky

      I prefer an enterprising businessman/leader over ANY career lying politician or even worse a lying lawyer

      Cruz hired Neil Bush who was involved with the S&L scandal & was supplied Chinese prostitutes.

    FOX in New York tried to molest a type of violent episode out of the scene in front of the venue and I’m sure was saddened that everyone were peaceful. The stream lauded the hatefulness of the protesters, who claim that Trump is hateful. The reporter celebrated 200 protesters while failing to mention that Trump supporters came in the thousands.

  • tyler

    I’m not here to support Trump but I think people here are being hypocritical. As I am here watching the news I see downtown SLC hitting a Pineada of trump. And they are saying trump is violent? Then I see people making fun of his orange skin. Then people say he is racist towards people’s skin color. I could keep going on. People who aren’t voting for trump, stop being hypocritical because you are just as bad as him.

  • jameswlee2014

    Trump has more people waiting in line to use the restrooms than the ‘prostesters’ do altogether. If that many Trump supporters turned out to protest the convict or the commie there would be the words “poorly attended” accompanying it.

  • Laurice M. Tatum

    I saw a Mexican flag in the mist of the protesters. Now what in the hell does that say about them, Mexican nationalist in America imposing their will on our political system? These fools coming in to our country rioting in the name of Mexico. Who else is not wanting to assimilate into American society is there protesting. Who else is wanting America to acquiesce to their will. we will not give up our sovereignty.

    • JC

      You see Mexican nationalist flags all over these protest mobs and then the ire of American citizens gets stirred up to an enraged point. How dare the ILLEGALS! What this says is that they have no regard for countries’ laws and identity as a sovereign nation. Try that in Mexoco!

      • liberalssuck

        Jean, a sad sorry little person you are with all that guilt..I carry NO white guilt.My ancestors never owned slaves or did anything to native americans.You don’t think other groups haven’t experienced racism or adversity ? Try the irish or heres one for you,white christian male in obamas america.
        Try reading some of this -its called “white girl bleed a lot”.Google it.
        Read some of that then get back to me.

    • Deborah Lynne Connor

      Tony Yaipias, who got a free education on taxpayers dollars, was probably leading it. He is with Le Reza people. That organization hates whites and wants to reclaim old Spanish territory!!! Just google “Le Reza” !!!

      • liberalssuck

        NO the liberals don’t want to recognize ANYTHING but imagined white racism.NOTHING will ever be said about black panthers threatening to kill white babies”while still in the womb”,or the hispanic texas university professor calling for the killing of white people or the racism of the brown berets.NEVER.White people are the ONLY ones capable of racism,right libbies?

  • Fat Albert

    I’ve said it time and time again…. they are NOT going to let Trump get the nomination!!! They are trying to make it so that Trump no longer “qualifies!!!” If they do that, I swear I’ll never bother “voting” again. Do I “agree” with Trump? Not really. Personally, I think the man’s dangerous! But for him to be unfairly “ousted” by his competitors ( they want to “add up” their votes – as if they were one person – to make sure Trump LOSES!!! I don’t care whether or not Trump’s a good guy, that’s just plain WRONG! But here’s the problem: Either Trump gets unfairly “ousted” and we end up with some rioting in our streets!… Or Trump gets elected President and we end up with MAJOR rioting, mass shootings, a war with Mexico ( the Mexican president said , and I quote… “I AM NOT PAYING FOR THE CONTRUCTION OF THAT F—-NG WALL!!! ), entire NEIGHBORHOODS being burned to the ground, and a flippant President that will probably just end up getting “assassinated” ANYWAY!!! I’m afraid the best thing for Trump to DO is gracefully “take a bow”, and not continue his run for President. I know many Black AND Mexican folks who will NOT take it lying down if Trump becomes President! These folks said that there will be blood flowing in the m—fkn’ streets if that happens!!! So, they’re sayin that Trump “better NOT” win the election!!!!
    Of the folks I’m referring to, 4 of them are Crips, and at least 5 of them are Bulldogs!! And if “they” are any indication, things are likely to get extremely NASTY if Trump makes the Presindency!!! Trump “says” he is liked by multitudes of Black and Mexican people! Problem: Howcome every Black and Mexican person I’ve asked so far says that, again, Trump had “better NOT” get elected President!!!! Just imagine what it would BE like if every single GANG MEMBER in the U.S.A decided to grab their guns and start shootin people down!!! If Trump gets elected, …from talking to the people I know, … that is the REALITY we may ALL be facing!!!
    But me thinks that Trump’s competitors ( and his “multitudes” of political enemies ) are about to get him “disqualified” long before that has chance to happen. I think that that’s “unavoidable” at this point! At least TWO THIRDS of the political arena is fighting against Trump ( who looks like “Chancellor Palpatine” in their eyes!!!) As little as ONE QUARTER of it is on his side!!! That ain’t good! The man has WAY too many enemies to make President. And if you think there’s rioting and violent protesters on America’s streets right now,…. ! But I really don’t think we have much to worry about. Trump’s bastard competitors are about to “disqualify” him.

    • Bigstusmc

      Well fat Albert those threats of gang bangers taking to the streets and picking up guns is really terrifying and all, but it wouldn’t be America if we let punks like that terrorize us. Do you have any idea how many guns white guys like me have laying around? They aren’t the only ones with choppers. BTW I’m a veteran so I don’t scare easily when bullets start flying. So come around my way with that crap and see what happens. The question you really need to be asking is what is wrong with you to be close enough to know what low life’s like that think. Maybe you should all hits the streets and find a fn job and do something worthwhile in your lives. Or just keep sitting around making lame threats like a true Internet tough guy

  • choochat prasertkun (@choochat1)

    Some group of people accusations him. They say.

    “We call him a buffoon, a clown, a carnival barker but what we fail to call him is evil. He is a racist, a misogynist, he belittle the disabled, he calls for massive deportations, he calls for the slaughter of innocent muslim women, men and children, he is a xenophobe an Islamophobe and a bully. Why aren’t we asking who would be such a person and who could suggest such outrageous ideologies for American consumption?
    This man is no longer funny. He is a dangerous disgrace to the States.”

    But Sheriff in MilWaukee County New York and almost of police still support him anytime.

  • Deborah Lynne Connor

    I support Trump!!! “That’s not how we roll in Utah” who said that???? I was a battered woman and the Utah courts treated me like a sub human. Mormon’s do not think for themselves!!! Most of them follow the leader, and that can be very dangerous, especially if their leadership is Illuminati infiltrated. I am a patriot, as is Donald Trump!!! All of the other candidates are Illuminati. What Donald is doing is a sacrifice and very dangerous. We have had Illuminati puppets since Kennedy was assassinated. How you roll in Utah is unacceptable to Christian women who are battered and have to go through your crooked judicial system. Ironically you have bull dykes and gays that have taken over the Guardian ad litem program, and they hate straight parents. They have destroyed so many Utah children!!! That’s how Utah male chauvinist pigs roll. Google: Deborah Lynne Connor YouTube, to see film footage of women in Utah begging to get their beloved children back. Mormon men, you treat your women like “Stepford Wives” in Stepford land!!! Shame on you for perverting the holy scriptures! Deborah Lynne Connor. 801-654-3140. GO TRUMP GODSPEED AND THANK YOU FOR LOVING OUR COUNTRY!!!!
