Ted Cruz Responds To John Boehner FULL Press Conference With Carly Fiorina In Ft. Wayne

Ted Cruz

From NewsMax:

On Wednesday, Boehner, during a chat with Stanford University, blasted Cruz as a “miserable son of a b****” and called him “Lucifer in the flesh.”

“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a b— in my life,” Boehner commented.

He further said that he and front-runner Donald Trump play golf together and are “texting buddies,” but he would not vote for Cruz even if he does get the GOP nomination.

But on Thursday, Cruz said he’s never worked with Boehner, and he’s only met him two or three times.

“If I said 50 words in my life to John Boehner, I’d be surprised,” said Cruz, nothing that “every one” of those conversations “has consisted of pleasantries like ‘good to see you, Mr. Speaker.'”

“I’ve never had any substantive conversation with John Boehner in any respect,” said Cruz, but he did comment that during the government shutdown, he and Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee reached out to Boehner.

“I offered to come over and work with the speaker,” said Cruz. “I asked him, ‘can we resolve this and actually get something meaningful done to stop the disaster that is Obamacare?’ John Boehner’s response was ‘I have no interest in talking to you. What possibly could be accomplished by having a conversation? No, I will not meet.'”

So, said Cruz, “when he says I’m the biggest SOB he’s ever worked with, he’s never worked with me.”

And Boehner is angry, said Cruz, because conservatives said that if they promised to repeal Obamacare, that meant “let’s actually stand up and fight Obamacare. What Boehner is angry with is that we said if we promise to stop amnesty, let’s actually honor our promises.”

Further, said Cruz, Boehner is angry because the “American people are holding him accountable.”

And over the years, said Cruz, Trump has been “writing checks to Boehner, writing checks to Hillary, funding the corrupt system.”

Boehner is angry, said Cruz, “because I led a movement of the people to hold Washington accountable. Donald Trump is playing a part or playing a role to use the word of his lobbyist campaign manager, pretending to be an outsider.

“Donald Trump is the ultimate Washington insider. He is a lobbyist who has gotten rich exploiting government power to hammer the little guy.”

The Prayer of Enos for Our Time

By: T F Stern | T F Stern’s Rantings

Our studies in Sunday School took us through the Book of Enos this past week.  It’s only a page long; but holds a wealth of information, information which applies to our day, perhaps more so than when it was written.

Enos prayed unto the Lord for a remission of his sins and during the conversation, prayer being more than a casual acknowledgment of the Lord’s hand in our lives; during that conversation Enos poured out his concerns regarding his people as well as those who stood in direct opposition to them.  After carefully reading the text it becomes evident that the people Enos pleads for at first are his own; but that they have become complacent and headed down a troublesome road.

In verse 10 we get a better idea of the dilemma Enos faced as he pleaded for his people to be worthy of blessings while at the same time well aware that those who understand their responsibilities, having decided not to follow the Lord’s way, those people must face the consequences of their actions.

Trump’s Incoherent, Inconsistent, Russian-Loving Foreign Policy

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Trump Foreign

Far be it from me to agreed with a Marxist, but CNN’s Fareed Zakaria did a great job listing just how incoherent and inconsistent Donald Trump’s foreign policy is.

He listed everything except for the gem where Trump touted that 9/11 was a tragedy because Italians died in it.

Trump used a prepared speech and teleprompters yesterday. He mispronounced ‘Tasmania’ and stumbled left and right. He talked about reducing weapon stockpiles. He talked about not getting in further conflicts, but he would still defeat ISIS. That makes no sense. He chooses a slogan of ‘America First!’ that was a slogan in the 1930’s for the Nazis in America to keep us from fighting the Germans. No one knows how to use Google in the Trump camp evidently. He also talks about the Cold War ending… it never did… it shifted. Trump’s speech was a disaster all in itself.

My friend Denise Simon noted several things yesterday… I have no doubt that Donald Trump is firmly in bed with Russia. He had the Russian Ambassador sitting in the front row of his speech. He has a campaign manager who represented Russian interests. He has foreign policy advisers that are friendly to Russia. Trump himself is fond of Putin and can ‘negotiate’ with him. You see, Trump is even more flexible than Obama was.

Ted Cruz Chooses Carly Fiorina

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Yesterday was a big day in the Ted Cruz camp. Cruz tapped Carly Fiorina as his Vice Presidential running mate. I believe it is a good, conservative choice. I have not always agreed with Carly, especially on past statements on Islam, but I like her. I’m willing to believe she has evolved on that issue. That’s one issue… Donald Trump evolves on every issue every 30 seconds, so I’m willing to give her room on this. Fiorina is a constitutional conservative and one of the brightest out there. No doubt that she would rip Clinton a new one. Both Carly and Ted are fighters… and we’re not done yet.

Cruz Fiorina

Carly was chosen as an attacker to go head to head with Hillary Clinton in November. She would clean the floor with the Hildabeast.

Per TheBlaze:

The combination of Cruz and Fiorina is enough to best Clinton in November, the official told TheBlaze — something they don’t believe businessman and front-runner Donald Trump will be able to do.

The timing of the announcement is highly unusual as no presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan in 1976 has named a running mate before officially earning their party’s nomination.

While perhaps a rare move, it sends a “clear signal now that Trump will not be the presumptive nominee,” the senior Cruz campaign official added. Cruz also wanted to be “transparent” with voters and let them see now what a Cruz administration is going to look like, according to the aide.

By adding Fiorina to his ticket this far in advance of the RNC, Cruz is also likely attempting to give delegates and party insiders a fuller picture of how the general election would play out if they chose him as the nominee.

And it won’t go unnoticed that Cruz has chosen a female vice presidential candidate to face Clinton.

Trump Jumps Into Bed With Putin

By: Cliff Kincaid | Accuracy in Media

Donald Trump

Donald J. Trump’s foreign policy address was delivered with the aid of a teleprompter and written by his pro-Russian advisers. He took no questions. It was a replay of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s disastrous Russian “reset” that led to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Yet, Trump pretends to be an opponent of Mrs. Clinton’s foreign policy.

We clearly saw the influence of Trump’s pro-Russian advisers in the speech. There was absolutely no recognition of the Russian threat to Europe, including its invasion and occupation of Ukraine.

Even our media couldn’t ignore this blatant omission. CNN international correspondent Frederick Pleitgen noted after the speech that Trump’s omission of Ukraine was great news for Russia, and that the Russians will be “almost ecstatic” over the speech. He said many people in Russia are “admirers” of Trump.

Of course, Trump admires Vladimir Putin, and vice versa. That is a matter of record. Trump didn’t disavow his previous pro-Putin comments.
