Via Mofo Politics comes this video of card-carrying RINO Marco Rubio discussing his strategy in Iowa. Is he targeting Trump? Kasich? Bush?
Of course not.
You’ve surely heard plenty talk about how the “establishment” is trying to figure out a way to deal with Donald Trump’s candidacy.
But it’s becoming increasingly clear that the candidate which they hate the most is Senator Ted Cruz.
In the video above, Rubio is repeating the familiar talking point about how Cruz “stole” the election in Iowa by telling people that Ben Carson had dropped out of the race.
Those of you who have took the time to examine the facts know that this is pure hogwash.
Mark Levin has completely debunked this nonsense, and you can listen to the whole thing here.
On the evening of the Iowa Caucus, CNN reported that Dr. Ben Carson was going back home to Florida and was not going to New Hampshire. Do these sound like the actions of someone who plans to stay in the race? Of course they don’t.
Based on the information reported by CNN, a Cruz campaign staffer sent out an email reading:
BREAKING NEWS: The press is reporting that Dr. Ben Carson is taking time off from the campaign trail after Iowa and making a big announcement next week. Please inform any Carson caucus goers of this news and urge them to caucus for Ted Cruz.
So the Cruz camp sent an email basically urging people to round up more support for their candidate.
Which is kinda what staffers are supposed to do because, like, a staffer’s job is to help his candidate win. The way to win is to get more votes and the way to get more votes is to ask for them.
As the RINO establishment continues to bludgeon Cruz over this nonsense, the very real scandal of Donald Trump’s imminent domain abuse is being largely ignored:
For more than 30 years Vera Coking lived in a three-story house just off the Boardwalk in Atlantic City. Donald Trump built his 22-story Trump Plaza next door. In the mid-1990s Trump wanted to build a limousine parking lot for the hotel, so he bought several nearby properties. But three owners, including the by then elderly and widowed Ms Coking, refused to sell.
As his daughter Ivanka said in introducing him at his campaign announcement, Donald Trump doesn’t take no for an answer.
Trump turned to a government agency – the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) – to take Coking’s property….
Peter Banin and his brother owned another building on the block. A few months after they paid $500,000 to purchase the building for a pawn shop, CRDA offered them $174,000 and told them to leave the property. A Russian immigrant, Banin said: “I knew they could do this in Russia, but not here. I would understand if they needed it for an airport runway, but for a casino?”
This Washington Post article from August explains Trump’s trampling of property rights in more detail.
As for Carson, he emerged from New Hampshire with fewer votes than any Republican candidate.
Did Cruz pull some shady stunt in New Hampshire too?
Or does Carson simply suck as a candidate?
