Senator Ted Cruz appeared to do an about face when he suddenly, in an interview on The Verdict, declared that there was no election fraud
and blamed Trump for the Jan. 6 riot.
Cruz said, “President Trump’s rhetoric, I think, went way too far over the line. I think it was both reckless and irresponsible because he said repeatedly, he said over and over, he won by a landslide, there was massive fraud, it was all stolen everywhere. That evidence — the campaign did not prove that in any court, and to make a determination about an election, it has to be based on the evidence. So simply saying the result you want, that’s not responsible. You have never heard me use language like that.”
Previously he had even offered to try some of the election fraud cases before the Supreme Court. Talk about a Judas move! He proved that he always has been “Lyin’ Ted.”
Obviously Cruz has presidential aspirations. But no one who was for Trump will forget that remark. We will remember at the ballot box. So why did he make it?
A possibility came to light in the continuing Parler disaster. It was disclosed that besides Dan Bongino, another partner was Rebekah Mercer. In 2016 the Mercers were avid promoters of Ted Cruz. At the time they owned Breitbart and used that site to push him.
Was Cruz making an open plea to the Mercers and other big GOPe donors for cash in his 2024 bid?
If there is one thing Donald Trump has shown us, it’s that 99.9% of politicians in DC dance to the music of corporate money. Most of us didn’t realize the depth of control corporations have over our elected officials. They care more about their opinions than ours. That has become abundantly and sadly clear.
