A New Low and an Apt Question

A disadvantage of not being the kind of guy who dumps his wife for a younger woman is that it can lead to attacks like this:

“Spill the beans” refers to an earlier Trump threat to disclose embarrassing personal information about Ted Cruz’s wife.

Politics is a nasty business, but few could have expected the bar ever to be brought this low.

For his part, Cruz has denounced the anti-Trump (as opposed to pro-Cruz) superPAC ad that drew attention to Trump’s latest wife having posed naked for a magazine. He believes spouses should be off limits. But pro-Trump media is still trying to tie it around his neck. This is another example of journalistic malpractice by a cable news industry that loves what Trump’s circus act is doing for its ratings.

Bill Kristol wonders,

The reputations of the Trump supporters addressed by Kristol have already been irrevocably destroyed — unless America really has degenerated into a place that deserves Donald Trump.

On tips from Varla and Torcer.

    The fact that Heidi Cruz works for the MOST CORRUPT, MOST EVIL, MOST HARMFUL, MOST UNLAWFUL financial firm on the planet is NOT A PLUS for Ted !!!

    (Naturally, Shrillary is still FAR WORSE than Heidi!)

  • MicahStone

    Typically, Trump’s crude, juvenile attacks on Heidi make him look like even more of a slimebag.

  • Pedro

    Oh please Dave, fuck off with your politically correct diarrhea already. Your blog is littered with nothing but “Ted dindu nuffin” posts these days. Whether you like Trump or not is irrelevant, considering your psychotic need to viciously attack anyone who happens to support him, regardless of their individual reasons for such. You may as well just call for the end of freedom of association while you’re at it, because you evidently seem incapable of not behaving like a precious snowflake each time Trump and others rebuke Rato for being a fraudulent hack. Get over yourself, egomaniac.

    So therefore our political savior is some who routinely attempts to influence politicians with money, has done business with the mob, has gone through multiple bankruptcies where he enriched himself at the expense shareholders and bondholders and the workers, who can’t make up his mind if he is a Republican or a Democrat or an Independent, who can’t keep his own policies straight when making statements before the press, has made many bone-headed business decisions, would have been richer had he invested the inheritance from his daddy in an index fund, has taken loans from and partied with George Soros, routinely insults women and political rivals, and overcompensates for his small fingers and feelings of inadequacy. Yeah, he’s our man. The great Donald.

  • Krummholzt

    As rumors begin to swirl about Cruz’s marital infidelities, the anti-Trump folks are going to have to decide whether they are going to back Paul Ryan or John Kasich or whomever else (((Kristol))) and his fellow would-be kingmakers are going to shove down everyone’s throat at the convention.

  • Tom Saywer

    Spot on Pedro, spot on. And well put. I’ve always loved Moonbattery, Weasel Zippers and the dozen or so conservative sites on my favorites list but I’m having a crisis of faith with the whole conservative punditry sphere lately because of their rabid absurdness that they have seen into the future and know exactly how Trump will perform and behave if he gets the nomination.

    Disappointing. Thank God for sites like Gateway Pundit because it seems to have been inoculated against the the close-minded rage of the conservative brand of TDS. It reeks of establishment conservatism. The same ilk who are responsible for Lindsey Graham, John Boehner and Paul Ryan.

  • jayeS

    It was Cruz’s camp that started this crap. Donald is not the type of man to stand by while some one attacks his wife. If you’re a man and married, would you stand for it? If you do then you are the coward. Go Trump!

  • jayeS

    I won’t support Ryan or Kasich. Both are RINOS, turncoats and I couldn’t stand the thought of voting for either. It’s either Trump or no one. I did the “hold my nose” last election and I won’t do it again.

  • William McDougald

    I’m more worried about Islam, that Ted dropped his political correctness on this week, and ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION moonbat. So are the American people I know. Moonbat my enemy is Hillary, you’re still focused on Trump.

  • GhostRider2001

    If true, that should greatly increase his appeal to the average Trump voter. But Donald has dramatically outperformed him in this area.

  • Chantal

    Good point William !

  • GhostRider2001

    You better toughen up, dude. It’s going to be ugly in the fall if Trump wins the nomination. The coruptocrats in the Democratic Party have a mountain of dirt of Trump’s own creation just waiting to hurl at him. They’ll make this #NeverTrump PAC look like a bunch of kindergartners. Trump is going to implode under the heat.

  • oldguy

    The Cruz staff is at it again, like their “crap” about Rubio dropping out of the race and Rubio’s supporters should support Cruz. What kind of man hires others to do his dirty work. I bet Cruz learned this behavior while being a US senator. Nice place this Washington DC.

  • GhostRider2001

    To answer your question honestly, Donald Trump is the type of man who hires legions of lawyers to do his dirty work in trying to convict people from their rent-controlled apartments, or to use the eminent domain laws in this and other countries to evict people from their houses for his commercial projects, etc., etc. and whoever else he tries to sue. No person is too little to get the Trump special treatment.

    Hopefully this #NeverTrump PAC ad won’t be used as his excuse to avoid the next debate.

  • Analog_Gamer

    Ted Cruz’s wife should be further investigated.

  • GhostRider2001

    In the good news of the day, Melania Trump and Trump Modeling beat the lawsuit brought by the Jamaican H1-B model who was promised a $75,000 a year salary when she was 17 to come to this country but got paid significantly less. Next stop the Department of Labor. Somebody definitely needs to investigate all the H1-Bs being issued by this company. Can’t Americans do this work? Can’t we just make America great again?

  • Torcer

    Sean Hannity forced to admit Ted Cruz had ZERO connection with Melania Trump ad
    Anyone who listens to Sean Hannity’s radio show or watches his television program knows how pro-Trump he is. He never says anything negative about Trump, nor will he allow others to without interrupting them and shutting them down. As a result, Trump has been friendly in return and has granted Hannity many interviews, which means high ratings.

    Yesterday, in his rush to carry Trump’s water, Hannity made a false statement regarding the Melania Trump/Heidi Cruz saga and was forced to correct himself later on Twitter.
    http://www.redstate.com/uploads/2016/03/hannity.png
    Unfortunately, the damage has already been done. Legions of Trump supporters now believe Cruz started it, leading Trump’s threat against Heidi Cruz, as well as his attack on her appearance, seem justified in their eyes.

  • Daniel

    Two of the five women have been identified. The first is former campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson. It starts with this tabloid rag, but it will gain traction given the fact that Katrina will not be going away.

    See, this really goes a long way to explain why Ted Cruz’s children do not like him. Children sense the tension of the mother when the father is around and respond accordingly.

    And Heidi’s suicidal episodes? This man Ted is not what people think. Ted has more in common with Swaggart than Reagan.

    But you’re right — the fact that Heidi is/was CFR and fully endorsed the plan to create an American Union and while she was CFR, Ted was on record calling them snakes. Kind of makes you wonder about things… especially things that people are unwilling to see.

  • Hang on…Cruz is going down in flames. Stay tuned.

  • Daniel Barger

    The Enquirer just put paid to Cruz and his faux squeaky clean image. After losing a couple of big libel cases the Enquirer doesn’t publish any claims it can’t back up. They ruined John Edward’s bid, looks like they’ll put an end to the Cruz campaign. And the Cruz/GoldmanSachs connection hasn’t even been exposed.

  • Revanche

    Ted Cruz: “Those ads had nothing to do with my campaign. Leave the wives out of it!”

    Weasel Zippers is still pretty good. There’s a relatively equal
    balance of Trump and Cruz supporters that get along well. Mainly
    the personal attacks and name calling are viewed as childish and ignorant and are community policed.

    The owner, Drew, is pro-Cruz, as are one or two of his immediate
    staff, but the many of the moderators are pro-Trump. Therefore,
    there is none of the mindless kneejerk propaganda coming from
    above that you see at sites like The Right Scoop and others….

  • Ed. G. Mann

    Got most right except for being a Donkey supporter of Trump. I’m not even a strong supporter of him, but a big supporter of destroying the GOPe Oligarchy. When thirsty, I drink beer, when voting, I vote Libertarian. Never voted Dem in my life and only voted Republican twice: Goldwater and Reagan.
    This is why and THIS IS TRUE.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    Doesn’t make any difference! Cruz did it. I’m entitled to my own facts just like you.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    I’ll buy your position on Hillary; with Trump, you’ll have to produce something more than normal business dealings. That’s a constant but those in that world play by those rules. Only the naifs get burned. They have to earn and learn their way.

    The GOPe oligarchs, those plutocrats, deserve all your enmity.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    Cruz has all the Conservative media against him now as he tries to out-Trump Trump. His latest goof is the ‘let’s increase police patrols of Muslim neighborhoods.’ Trump never went that far.
    Cruz is a radical who doesn’t share American values of the melting pot and assimilation. HE’S WAY TOO DIVISIVE.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    Today is a good day to crucify CRUZ. YOWZA-YOWZA! Lat’s do it!

    Once we cut back on these H1-B visas and stop the corporations from forcing employees to train the visa holders who will take their jobs, AMERICA WILL BE GREAT AGAIN!

    Hey, she could always make a nice living working the fruit picking route. I’ve met them, photographed them and spoke with them. They make nice money, work 9 months and winter back in Jamaica.

    What’s wrong with her doing work Americans won’t do.

  • You’re wasting your time, unfortunately the Trumpsters do not care about the truth. They are a rabid dog pack at this point. Sad, sad days in America, watching my country go down in flames because it is easier for them to follow a cult leader than to investigate the truth. They cannot even see how similar they are to the Obama supporters.

  • GhostRider2001

    Excuse me for taking a page from the Trump playbook.

    The only thing off limit to the Democrat PACs will be Trump’s connection to Jeffery Epstein’s “Lolita Express” because Bill Clinton also enjoyed Epstein’s “hospitality.”

    I’m sure they’ll be able to dig up plenty of people who got shafted in Trump’s casino debacle, Trump Mortgage and Trump University, etc. to provided “character references,” The only wildcard here is whether Trump’s lawyers will be able to intimidate many of them into silence.

    Well Americans haven’t picked fruit since the Depression. As for the H1-B’s employees should wake up to what’s going on too. Refuse to train those replacements; what will the company do, fire you?

    As for her “pay cut” we don’t know what was in that contract. When in Rome, one does what the Romans do; in America, one does what Americans do, one hires a lawyer.

    Damn, if we don’t keep lawyers employed in suing orphans, widows and mental defectives, there will be nothing left for them to do except run for office. You see, there is a darker side.

  • GhostRider2001

    From NBC News: ‘Donald Trump, in an interview on CNN on Tuesday night, said he supports Cruz’s plan “100 percent.”‘ Gee, sounds like Trump is too radical/devisive too. Maybe we need to find someone else to vote for. Or has he changed his position already on this?

  • Revanche

    Sorry, but your mendacious little spew is easily blown to smithereens:

    “especially those with potential knowledge of what took place on St. James Island— eluded subpoenas on technical grounds.

    There was one exception: Donald Trump.

    * * *

    Edwards, the lawyer for Roberts and about 10 other Jane Does, said that after he served Trump with the subpoena in 2009, Trump immediately contacted him.

    “During the conversation, Mr. Trump was open and forthright,” Edwards said.

    “I cannot discuss the substance of the conversation. But I will say that
    it was obvious to me that he was in no way involved in any untoward
    activity.”
    _______
    Oops.. Much to the Cruz camp’s dismay, I guess there’s another
    reason why the Democrat’s won’t be using this.

  • GhostRider2001

    You can change the subject and talk about fruit pickers all you want. I’m referring to all the H1-B models and prospective future wives at the Trump Modeling Agency. If we can’t make America Great there, then how can we possibly make America Great anywhere else?

    There is and should be a price for supporting an assclown like Donald Trump.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    I don’t need someone else to vote for in the general election. I always vote for the Libertarian ticket especially in the down ticket lines. As many times as I have said this, every one wants to make me out to be a Trump supporter. Not true, I’m all for the destruction of the GOPe. Permanently, to kill the corruption embedded in the power base that picks the candidates so that you may have someone for whom to vote. With the exception of Reagan and now Trump this has been so right down the line. Give them a chance and this time it will happen again. This year’s selection will be Ryan.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    Who cares about a bunch of bimbos on a catwalk. That isn’t going to pit middle America back to work, alter the tax structure or gut the GOPe.

    And it actually may be too late to recover this Country’s past without a hell of a bunch of gunfire. Hope you have the balls for that.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    He won’t be around after the convention. He’ll be back in Texas and the bull he sees will be a mechanical one in Cattle Poots Bar in Posthole Texas.

  • GhostRider2001

    Then we have something in common, though I think the enabler and profiteerer of political corruption at the local, state and national levels is every bit as bad as the politicians themselves.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    There is! It’s called winning.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    It is although on the local level it depends upon the size of the community. I’m a Vermont native lived in a town where we knew everybody. Kinda of tough to screw around there but the school boards were on a county level and they had to be watched closely, very liberal.

    Now in South Carolina all sorts of nastiness goes on in the PD, town councils, and in the State, SOS, they BS the voters before the election and do what they want afterward with some exceptions.

    There are many different parties one can choose from for a candidate: Constitutional, Libertarian, Green, CPUSA, Progressive Freedom Party and more. (I’m listing them not espousing them) Getting people from the smaller parties elected to the State offices is the first step to braking the GOPe’s grip on the State and National. The State elections are more important.

  • Occam’s Stubble

    By posing nude in a magazine, Melania did something many people would consider immoral. Some superPAC pointed that out to values voters in an attempt to defeat Trump at the polls. It isn’t very nice but politics ain’t beanbag.

    Trump responds by tweeting a picture of Cruz’s wife when she’s not looking her best. We’ve seen lots of these. If you’re willing to go frame-by-frame, you can get an ugly picture of anyone.

    What fascinates me is Trump’s thought process. He apparently thinks that being married to a less-than-beautiful woman is a detriment to Cruz or his being married to a model is a boost to himself. Does he really think we’re that shallow? Are we? Does it surprise anyone that a billionaire is married to a young, beautiful woman?

    The point was Cruz could put out the word to the PACs supporting him to knock it off.

  • formwiz

    Actually, a lot of people are speculating Trump’s threat was about Cruz’ multiple infidelities, not his wife.

    And, if Cruz has denounced the ad, he didn’t do it very loudly.

    His history of his hiding behind dirty tricks by other people are coming back to bite him.

  • GhostRider2001

    Yep, that’s why I said even the Democratic Super PACs won’t try to use the guilt by association ploy against Trump over his 15+ year friendship with Epstein because Bill Clinton has the same problem. However, all the other stupid/mean/cruel/underhanded things Trump has done over his adult life is fair game. Even noogies in high school.

  • ed357

    Was the SuperPac that posted the Melania semi nude pic ad…….

    the same SuperPac that donated the $500,000 to Carly Fiorina’s campaign as alleged “hush money” ???

  • GhostRider2001

    And how could I forget Trump and his BFF at the Enquirer David Pecker. They put out some great articles over the years such as: “Bungling Surgeon Ben Carson Left Sponge in Patient’s Brain!”, “Homewrecker Carly Fiorina Lied About Druggie Daughter”, “Pervy Ted Cruz Caught Cheating — With 5 Secret Mistresses!”, “Jeb Bush Snorted Cocaine On Night His Dad Became President!”, “Jeb Bush’s Girl Caught Loafing On The Job”, “‘Family Man’ Marco Rubio’s Love Child Stunner!”, “Shady Lady Who Could Ruin Marco Rubio!”, “Senator Marco Rubio’s Cocaine Connection!”, “Trump’s the One! The Man Behind the Legend!.”, and “TRUMP MUST BE PREZ!” Anyone see a pattern there? Trump’s own scandal-filled life should make great fodder for the Enquirer, but for one thing. As they say somewhere— the end justifies the means.

    I’m positive that G.H. was your fave as was Good Ole Bob Dole. Dubya of course was a raving conservative. John McCain, now there is a sky rocket of Conservative principles and last but not least, Mitty, who could forget him.

    OK, which of them did you pick? Who was your first choice? 38th choice? Thought so.

  • 762×51

    Those I freely castigate started this bullshit. Go back and read the pro-Trump crap that has been posted here, it is
    both despicable and ridiculous. I didn’t expect it and I doubt Dave Blount did either. Go back and look at the comment count on Trump related vs. non-Trump related articles then read the vileness posted by your cohorts, that is the of your on volition. Trumpies act like Brownshirts, I didn’t
    make them that way, they did. You think we are going to be pushed around any longer, you are gravely mistaken, enough is enough

    It is unfortunate that you have thrown in with the likes of Trump but that was your decision. I was not initially opposed to Trump as a candidate until this vote Trump or else shit started. Swear allegiance to Trump? Not me brother, my allegiance is to the Constitution. It’s a shame you abandoned that oath you swore so long ago, I will not abandon mine, ever. You go on believing that if you’re in range, so am I. That’s what I want you to think.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    I haven’t tossed in with anyone. I want the GOPe gutted and I’ll get that. It’s is so corrupt ah, I listed why before. The idea that you or anyone here (me included) actually have any say in this process is patently absurd. The Government has been bought by money as far back as Andrew Jackson. He broke the bankers and they came back after the Civil War. Wilson put the skids to the Country when he got the private bankers to form the Federal Reserve.

    Do you really believe they’re going to let you screw up what they have going? Cruz will be swatted aside. Trump is the problem because of the populism. They haven’t figured out how to beat that YET. He causes them much worry since he doesn’t owe any allegiance to the elites.

    The populist uprising is not something they counted on having to deal with in a convention or anywhere during the primaries.

    Mark what I’m saying; the GOPe will lose this election in order to keep their power base. Congress is one big club. If you’re in power, you get to handle the money perqs and buy off a few more people.

    The President? He’s a schmuck who does what he’s told, signs the bills that gives some Congresscritter another building with his name on it. In exchange, he gets to play golf and fly around on our dime.

    Obama didn’t get elected because he had pull, he’s the yes boy. He paid no dues.

    DC makes a whorehouse look pristine.
