When I first conceived this piece it was going to be something different.

When the NYT came out with their piece about a loan for the first Ted Cruz campaign for Senate it was meant to bring out visions of an evil conspiracy by the folks at Goldman Sacks to deceive conservatives whose main cog was Senator Cruz’s wife Heidi. For big money to seize the White House under the guise of the Tea Party

It was the perfect story for the MSM. Cruz as a phony beholding to the wealthiest of the wealthy & his wife as Hillary Clinton, the scheming conniver behind the throne, in disguise.

Now of course the truth of the matter is quite different and easily explained.

I was going to use this piece to point out that if you have a Whole Life insurance policy, a bank account or a 401K account, an annuity account etc and have ever taken out a loan against it to finance something important like college, a house, or even something trivial like a boat, you have done exactly what Ted Cruz did. His crime apparently is having a successful wife who had a good job and stocks to borrow against so that he could get a bigger loan than most people do (which is another club to hit the senator with, he married too well). The whole thing is smoke and mirrors meant to plant a meme for the media to run with.

“But DaTechGuy”, you ask, “ That doesn’t address the single most important part of the story, if this was all on the up and up, why did he conceal it?”

Well thank to Syndicated Columnist Phil Kerpen and the wonders of twitter, the answer is quite simple to give and prove, HE DIDN’T!

If you want to argue that Senator Cruz should have had this in his FCC report that is a fair statement, but if you want to argue that Cruz had some cunning plan to hide this info which the MSM want to play up, then including it on a financial disclosure statement filed with the Federal government seems an odd way of doing it.

Now this will of course not stop either the MSM or other campaigns to continue to play this card. It’s only to be expected, the MSM hates conservatives, the other campaigns because they are desperate to catch up and the establishment GOP because they Cruz more than they do Trump.

Unexpectedly.

But I, maybe naively, expect that if you are a conservative activist, even one who supports a different candidate, you hold yourself to a higher standard and are smart enough not to trust the New York Times and the MSM it feeds.

I know you can get the MSM for nothing, but that’s pretty much what most of them are worth.

If you remain indifferent in time of adversity, your strength will depart from you. Rescue those who are being dragged to death, and from those tottering to execution withdraw not. If you say, “I know not this man!” does not he who tests hearts perceive it? He who guards your life knows it, and he will repay each one according to his deeds.

Proverbs 24:10-12

Barack Obama: ” I told you earlier all the talk of America’s economic decline is political hot air. Well, so is all the rhetoric you hear about our enemies getting stronger and America getting weaker. The United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. It’s not even close. “ Jan 12, 2016

Joe Biden: “One of the boats had engine failure and drifted into Iranian waters. The Iranians picked up both boats, as we have picked up Iranian boats that needed to be rescued and took them to — I’m not sure exactly where. I don’t want to misspeak here. And realized they were there and distressed, and said they would release them, and they released them like ordinary nations would do.

John Kerry “I want to express my gratitude to the Iranian authorities for their cooperation is resolving this matter quickly”

I don’t expect any better from Barack Obama, Joe Biden or John Kerry, to them the humiliation of America is a feature not a bug. Nor do I expect better from the press who believes the same or any of their enablers in the Democrat party. In this I disagree with Noah Rothman:

If these people had any sense of shame they would not be defenders of this administration

What really hurts is that I DID expect better from the American People, but perhaps I was a fool in doing so.

Update: Trump nails it

“She is right. I am angry, and a lot of other people are angry too at how incompetently our country’s being run,” Trump said Wednesday night on CNN’s “Erin Burnett Outfront.”

“I don’t care, let her refer to me. As far as I’m concerned, anger and energy is what this country needs,”

I wish I was more angry & less resigned over this
