Ted Cruz: South Carolina will be like Iowa

by David M Jackson  |  published on February 20, 2016

Ted Cruz is confident that the conservative coalition that boosted him to victory in Iowa will do the same Saturday in South Carolina.

“The people of South Carolina, they want a conservative as the next president,” Cruz said during an event at an old theater in historic downtown Charleston.

Buoyed by a new poll showing him only 5 points behind front-running Donald Trump, Cruz said his campaign team in Iowa put together conservatives, evangelicals, Ronald Reagan Democrats, and young people — “It was that old Reagan coalition.”

Fox News talk show host Sean Hannity hosted the Charleston event, which also featured appearances by Rep. Mark Sanford and Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson.

Cruz also has campaign stops Friday in Myrtle Beach, West Columbia and Greenville

    There is no way in the world I would ever vote for Donald Trump. He’s a loudmouthed, foul mouthed, arrogant, lying liberal.

  • kbfallon

    That poll was kinda like the deal they pulled on Carson in Iowa–FAKE!…Trump all the way to the Whitehouse 2016 !!! No more phony outsiders.

  • Barry Ingram

    Trump is a great man he is my uncle HE WILL MAKE THE USA GREAT AGAIN NEVER QUESTION ANYBODIES FAITH THAT IS BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR CREATOR GOD BLESS AMERICA

  • TOM

    Iowa was a fluck, Cruz your going to be done. With some shady things happening around your campaign you will be lucky to finish 3rd. You should follow Jebs steps and get out while you can. Greg 137 Cruz Sr is a brother of Christ, Teddy however wants you to think he is. You don’t have campaign members pull stunts like he has and claim innocence and then you all of the sudden “sorry” People are tired of those tactics. People want fresh, and Trump and Marco are providing that. Ted reminds me of a used car salesman

  • Greg137

    Open Primary means democrats can “help” Republicans pick their candidate, and so naturally the Democrats vote for Trump… In the General election The democrats that vote for Trump now will vote for Hillary in the general… South Carolina needs to reform their primaries…

    • Sherry

      Should have KNOWN!! Why was this not broadcast as FACT??? The Devil is ALWAYS in the details, eh?? I wonder what the actual conservative vote was??? That seems so unconstitutional; does it not?

  • Suzey

    Trump has no chance in the general election. Too many Republicans and Conservatives really dislike him and will not vote for him.

    • Sherry

      Third party vote???

    • Kim

      Trump is ahead. Get use to him

  • Suzey

    You evidently haven’t been following the campaign. Rubio has said nothing will pass on immigration until the border is sealed. I would hope that anyone who has any knowledge of our democracy would not vote for a Socialist, or a spoiled brat like Trump or a liar like Hillary.

    • SABER

      Rubio has no chance.

  • runnindeer

    The people that have come out to campaign for Cruz don’t really inspire my confidence in Cruz at all. I don’t trust the man and I have listened to him very closely since he first became a candidate. Also studied his record. He has told untruth’s that I would feel are not just a change of heart or left out pieces of a whole story. He also fails to inspire friendship or trust with fellow co workers and associates. No friends at all ! That isn’t a sign of a person with the ability to lead a nation to greatness or get business done .
    I support Donald J. Trump because I trust him. I know that he can fix what has been broken in America and with him as commander in chief I know America would be stronger and safer.

    • Sherry

      YOU should have studied the Donald as closely; far more damning

      material to go through! FRIENDS??? Cruz stepped on too many RINO toes trying to stop the “O” disaster train, without hardly any GOP support! Donald has FRIENDS??? People trusted Hitler, TOO! The vaunted “intelligent” Germans overwhelmingly VOTED for their new fuhrer. He claimed, “All I wanted was a better world for you”! Sound familiar? Same mold; different time…….

  • Seedman

    I look forward to voting for Ted Cruz!

    • Sherylynne

      You’ll have to write him in.

  • Suzey

    I am not for Cruz or Trump – especially not Trump. He said in an interview with Howard Stern that he supported the Iraq War. He is always making ridiculous statements and then saying he didn’t say that. He should go back to building casino palaces, fabulous hotels and magnificent golf courses for the wealthy to enjoy. He is rude and crude. His speeches are not really inspiring. He is full of slogans, but no real policy. I am for Rubio!

    • SABER

      Losero has no chance.

      • Suzey

        If you want Hillary for President, vote for Trump

        • SABER

          If you want Bernie for President, vote for Marco “Gang-of-8-Amnesty” Rubio.

  • gglove

    Does this mean Cruz will be his lying & cheating as usual??????

    • Thirstiest

      Cruz doesn’t lie and cheat, his opponents have no substance to use against him so the fabricate things and yell LIAR LIAR … rather than speak about issues.

      • Sherylynne

        Thirstiest…time to cap the bottle. You’re sloshed.

        • Kim

          I am a Christian and let me tell you being a president why does it have to be about religion. I am going for someone who is honest and not someone who is lying

          • Sherry

            It’s NOT about “religion”! It’s about faith and integrity given to us by Jesus Christ; IF we ask Him for it!! A TRUE Christian would have right discernment….which you seem to lack.

      • Sherry

        They won’t HEAR you! They are the same ones who wouldn’t listen to the real truth as the lies kept flowing; the same ones who kept yelling, “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” And, so they did…
        Remember; you can’t see it NOW, but God does have a perfect plan. Take heart, friend! Nothing can affect His plan………. NOTHING!!

        • SABER

          His plan obviously is not Cruz or Rubio. Go drink some more Kool-Aid.
          Trump 2016!

      • Kim

        He did lie.

        • Sherry

          NO, HE DIDN’T!!! SHOW us proof that he lied! CNN LIED; NOT Cruz! That’s why they had their news floor guy there at Cruz’s area. CNN started the rumor mill and Trump was in on it! He KNEW that CNN was behind it all along; but the “art of the deal” guy took full advantage of it! God will NOT bless the fool! He will be another “O”! WORSE!!

          • Kim

            Believe what you want but he lied

          • Sherry

            THAT’S YOUR ANSWER??? REALLY??? YOU ARE A FAKE!!

        • Thirstiest

          sorry, just saw your response, when did Cruz lie?

          • Kim

            Don’t be sorry. He lied about Rubio, trump and Carson. But if you like Cruz then you should go with him. This is a great country that we can pick who is president

    • SABER

      YES!

  • Suzey

    Suzey
    Those of you voting for Trump, beware, he cannot win the general election. If he is the nominee, hope you will be happy with a Democrat President and a very Liberal Supreme Court.

    • TAM44

      You are full of obama.

      • SABER

        and the letters o b a m a can be replaced with s h _ t.

  • kbfallon

    I am sticking with Donald Trump and not for the PHONY Rafael Cruz.

    • Kim

      Amen

      • kbfallon

        Kim, what’s funny here is the responses to my posts–they call me hater……for merely pointing out facts that are of public knowledge….unreal that there are so many small minded people out there–if you do not agree with them–you are a monster.

  • Marion E McKenzie

    2016 Donald Trump in the White House…2017 Hillary and Obama in Prison…

    • SABER

      Very good prediction! This could happen. 🙂
      Trump 2016!!

  • Sherylynne

    Yeah, and there is a Santa Claus. Uh-huh.

  • Webb

    #WithOutCruzYouLose…

    • Sherylynne

      Vote for Cruz…guaranteed to lose!

      • Webb

        Yes, Cruz may Lose…But so will The Nation!

  • Annihilator

    So their saying they want a Canadian non american, that’s what they want, well, then south Carolina are a bunch of idiots.

    • Webb

      South Carolina are a bunch of idiots…
      We South Carolina Idiots Will make Our Choice and You Are Welcome To Do the Same!!

      • Danny

        Go South Carolina!! I am ready to see some good results…I am ready to see the uhauls at the Whitehouse

    • SABER

      South Carolina will select Trump by more than 2 to 1 over Rafael the Canadian.
      Trump 2016!

  • Donna Lambert

    So I guess that means he has more dirty tricks up his sleeve like he pulled in Iowa, lying about Carson.

    • Sherylynne

      LYING AND CHEATING. The man knows he was born a Canadian. Wants the nomination … at any cost …whether it’s lying about another candidate or lying about his qualification to run for the office of POTUS.

      • kbfallon

        Rafael Cruz–the Cuban Canadian a phony of biblical proportions.

        • ADRoberts

          And you are a deceiver, the follower of the GREAT deceiver. Can’t you find another country to throw in there to increase the repulsive name calling?
          Of course you can. We are counting on you.
          Come up with a dooooozie. Call him a Kenyan. LOL

          • kbfallon

            Merely pointing out Facts…he’s Cuban / Canadian as is public record for all to see. You cannot hide the truth from everyone….and I hate no one as its a waste of time and energy. And his name is Rafael Cruz.

          • ADRoberts

            And I am German, Welsh, Cherokee, Chickasaw and maybe a lot more.
            The ONLY reason you are pointing that out is as a smear.
            Deny that.
            And you are playing race and nationality when you do it.
            Now point out the same thing about Trump, being Scotch or Swiss.
            No, you wont’ do that. You don’t want to smear him;

            YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE.

            So I challenge you. Show a person who is more loyal, more knowledgable of he Constitution, more consistent in his positions.
            You can’t And yet, you go for the Trojan Horse who has just FLIPPED on just about everything to come over from being a flaming liberal for FOUR DECADES to suddenly claim that he is a “conservative.
            LOL

        • ADRoberts

          Oh, and please stop referring to the Bible, since you obviously know nothing about the Bible.

          • kbfallon

            We have a first amendment and I see that you do not wish to have it used. I will exercise my rights as I see fit–so, there you have it. TRUMP 2016!

          • ADRoberts

            Use it all you want. Just remember you are to be judged by God for “EVERY IDLE WORD”. And when you us HIS book, He might not be so inclined to excuse you. Forgive you yes. But only if you repent.
            Now, again. Explain why it was not that long ago that Trump described himself as ‘VERY PRO-CHOICE”. All the excuses in the world will not change the FACT that the biggie in his life is that he was going to run for POTUS.
            And you are buying this.
            And there is a lot more.
            Like the massive support for radical liberals in Congress. You call it business. I call it a lack of integrity, ethics and principals. OR, he is still a real liberal, just PRETENDING.

        • Sherry

          God warned us about all of you haters and told us NOT to be offended; but to forgive you for you know not what you do. He told us that “if they hated Me, then they will hate you”! The unbelievable barrage of twisted “facts”, out right lies and fabrications, will take their toll, for sure, BUT, God has a plan and He will not be mocked for long! He will send you strong delusions to suffer from because you would not hear Him! Please; turn around and seek Him while you still can, before it’s too late!! He want’s desperately to save you before the evil about to befall us sweeps you away into unending HELL! PLEASE HEAR ME! YOUR VERY LIFE DEPENDS ON YOUR CHOICES TO DENY OR ACCEPT THE GOD THAT CREATED YOU!

          • kbfallon

            WOW! You need to see your dr….please for the sake of humanity…..!

      • ADRoberts

        You have all the markings of a person who is bigoted to the point that, JUST LIKE TRUMP, HIMSELF SAID, if he shot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue, you would still vote for him.
        That is called BRAINLESS.
        Tell me. Are you pro abortion? Cause it was not until JUST before he announced he was running that he changed his “mind”
        And he still give big bucks to Planned Parenthood.
        Did you know that? I guess you did. And it still does not penetrate your thick skull. HE IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE.

      • SABER

        Absolutely right!
        Trump 2016!

    • Thirstiest

      Who ever gave the CNN the information that Carson was leaving town?

    • SABER

      Cruz will lose! No question!
      Trump 2016!

      • Sherry

        Cruz has ALREADY WON! He is a Christian and has ETERNAL LIFE!! Now, that’s a WIN! How about you, SABER???

        • SABER

          Looks like Cruz lied again with 3rd place, not first, in South Carolina. I trusTed Cruz to lose badly in SC. He did. I trusTed to not win even one County in SC. I trusTed to lose and lose and lose until he suspends his illegal campaign.
          As for Cruz being saved or not, that is between the Lord and him. He may be a winner this way or maybe he is not. It is not for me to decide.
          President Donald J. Trump…the 45th President of the United States of America…has just accomplished the next step to making this TRUE!
          Trump was FIRST with evangelical Christians! Trump was FIRST with men. Trump was FIRST with women. Trump is going to run the table!
          Cruz and Rubio (a.k.a. Castro Boys) should pack up and go home. JEB did!
          Trump 2016

        • Kim

          That is stupid. Doesn’t matter if your Christian or not. If your a Christian you should not be lying like Cruz does. Wake up. Trump 2016

  • Kendall Lawyer

    Trump: pushing liberal lies about George W Bush and Ted Cruz; pushing for “neutrality” between our Ally, Israel, and our enemy, the Palestinians; pushing for funding of Planned Parenthood; said he likes Hillary and that she’s doing a good job; supports gay marriage; supports partial birth abortion; called Dr. Carson a psychopath; promotes the use of eminent domain to have the government seize private property for his own selfish benefit; gave money to Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry and Hillary Rotten Clinton; lied about his own posture regarding the Iraq war.

    Let’s face it, the man is a complete con-artist and does not deserve a single vote.

    • 123terrywbradley456

      Kendall Layer, you are right on. One thing that you forgot – Trump made his billions through crony capitalism, i.e , buying influence from Democrat politicians, which he admits.

      • Sherylynne

        You, 123terywbradley456, are clueless and, apparently, hearing “voices.”

      • Kim

        So what.

      You sound like the blow hard idiot that lives up to the last name you go by.I guess one phony lawyer deserves another huh!

      Let’s face it. You’re delusional.

    • kbfallon

      Hey ambulance chaser–you’re opinion is thought of as highly as your thieving profession is thought of…..cannot believe a word out of your or Rafael Cruz’s mouth–PHONIES who will sleep with the devil for some money. Rafael Cruz is one of the lying sacks of sheit we want out!

      • Kendall Lawyer

        ambulance chaser? mois? sorry, you have the wrong guy. I do constitutional law in criminal defense cases. you know: 1st amend, 2nd amend; 4th amend; 5th amend; 6th amend.

  • Skyhawk

    Trump lost all credibility when he attacked Jeb by using the liberal lies concerning the WMDs of Saddam Hussein. They were there, as said, and had been used.

    • Donna Lambert

      Really? Is that why he is serging upward in the polls?

      • Thirstiest

        the reason Trump is gaining support is due to the voters seeking a new direction … Trump hasn’t offered it, but the masses seeking salvation via the ballot box are duped by Trumps ability to leave blanks, letting the listener hear whatever pleased him/her. Look up enthymeme: an argument in which one premise is not explicitly stated, Trump does it all the time, listen carefully.

        • SABER

          Who is paying for Cruz’s wall? Crickets…..

        • Sherry

          They won’t hear you……. They are already on the lemming/sheeple run and can’t see the deadly cliff in front of them!

          • SABER

            I hear there are a lot of cliffs in Cuba.

      • Sherry

        So did “O” and look where that got us…….You FOOLS!!! You are destroying our Conservative Party!!! We should go ahead and go for third party classification! How about Constitutional Christian Conservative Party! We grass roots “T” party types have been overwhelmed with far left GOPers. Remember, “divide and conquer”? That’s what the left has done to us! Trump is a plant; a red herring…….

        • SABER

          Trump is the real enchilada….not Cruz or Rubio!

    • kbfallon

      JEB would have a hard time getting voted in as a WALMART greeter if he couldn’t buy it with his families money–his own mother told him not to run for crying out loud–that should tell people something….Trump slapped him around with words as he should have after being attacked by BIG BIRD BUSH. Cluck-cluck-cluck.

    • Sherylynne

      Jeb who?

    • Kim

      Guess what trump won. So your wrong

      • Sherry

        HOW does that make Skyhawk WRONG??? IT DOESN’T!

      • kbfallon

        sorry to hear you picked a loser.

    • ADRoberts

      If you had been looking, you would have figured out that Trump was and still is a liberal. He bragged on an Oprah show that if he ever ran for President, he would run as a Republican because the conservatives are so easy to deceive.

      • runnindeer

        That is Not a True statement. When he was on Oprah ( many years ago) he never said that he would deceive conservatives nor did he say that he would run as Republican for that reason. (That video is available on Youtube and proves Mr. Trump to be a long time Conservative Republican that has the ability to get along with people of other walks of life and other political persuasions . It also shows that he is well able to discern political facts and understand strategy .

        • ADRoberts

          Face it. We have a congress full of “conservatives” who can get along with Obama and the Democrats.
          BUT WE DON’T WANT THAT ANY MORE.
          And by now, if you have not learned that the liberals have been playing the “compromise” game and getting everything they want, you are really blind.
          How does it work?
          The Dems want a billion for a program. They know the Republicans want to ACT like they are working for reducing spending. So they put out a plan that calls for 2 billion. They all play the game and in the end, they settle for ONE BILLION. The Democrats got what they wanted all along and the RINOs get to claim that they cut back on spending.
          And the taxpayers get (*******)

          • Sherry

            Very well put! Spot on!

        • Sherry

          SORRY, friend! You are completely wrong! I saw that clip many years ago, and didn’t think anything about it! I don’t remember if it was on Oprah, but I never thought he was serious about a run! Because, surely, no one would fall for that loud mouth, uncouth clown! My, how Americans have changed…….I now realize that the type of “entertainment” Americans devour today should have been a bell ringer for us to WAKE the hell up, eh??

        • ADRoberts

          You can’t prove a negative. Good try.
          Videos have photoshop.
          I have his record of what he said and did.
          And they prove that he has NEVER been a conservative.
          Now, explain his “very PRO-CHOICE” statements.
          Explain the millions he gave to flaming liberals for the last FOUR DECADES. Much more than he ever gave to conservatives. Are you and he saying that Democrats can be bribed more easily, that they have less morality?
          LOL
          Explain his erroneous and stupid statement about Kim Davis that she should obey the law of the land. SHE DID. When the SCOTUS struck down the laws against homosexuality, they were UNABLE to write the laws that GAVE that right to homosexuals. So there was NOTHING. Trump was to biased and bigoted to know this.

      • Sherry

        I REMEMBER THAT CLIP! Perhaps Cruz ought to make that into an ad!

        • Kim

          Cruzis good with lying.

          • ADRoberts

            Make a statement of accusation.
            Back it up with facts.
            No. You won’t . You can’t

      • I Seigel

        Well, i don’t think your degrees are helping you any. Trump won another one, in a state where 70% of Republicans consider themselves born-again or evangelicals.

        • ADRoberts

          1. It ain’t over yet.
          2. South Carolina is now a yankee state.
          3. You still haven’t explained how he could come SOOOOO far from being THE bankroll for the radical liberals to being the sweetheart of so many conservatives.
          Read the article in Politichicks titled “Conservatives in South Carolina are ready for Victory” and down in the comments is a post by JeffH where he quotes Kelly Hubbard.
          Item after Item of the deception of Trump. And all of it just before he announced his run for POTUS.
          Never before has a candidate been able to move SO far ideologically and not be called on it.
          WHY?
          Because he is THE candidate of the elite.

          • I Seigel

            And why do you leave it to ME to explain it? I’m just passing along FACTS. I’m not assuming to analyze this or state my opinion.
            And who is Kelly Hubbard and why is it important that someone is quoting her? Who cares?

          • ADRoberts

            Ah, my point exactly. She gave the proof that Trump is a Trojan Horse. And all you had to do is go to Politichicks and read it. But you won’t. WHY? Because you don’t want to know……… oh, that is right. You already know everything she said. You just ignore it.
            FACTS? And just who declared that what you said is the SIGNIFICANT fact that overwhelms everything else. I know. If we don’t accept it, Trump will get mad and refuse to do a debate. lol

          • I Seigel

            The FACT that I stated was that Trump won the SC primary. I don’t see the point of discussing this fact, unless you refuse to believe it. And that would be even more of a reason to end this rather silly argument.

            Politichicks? Is that some academic or fact-based research or polling organization? Or just a bunch of people blogging and spouting opinions? Sorry, my time is better spent than reading opinions on Politichicks. If Kelly Hubbard was an important analyst or opinion-maker, she would be working for Fox or an organization with a little bigger visibility.

            Maybe it would be better if you were able to get all the voters in the upcoming primaries to read it. Whether I read it or not is inconsequential.

          • ADRoberts

            Bigoted and locked in to an idea. You believe that a flaming liberal can suddenly change to be a conservative. LOL. You have FAITH in a man who throws tantrums and refuses to debate because of ONE abrasive reporter.
            You believe that a BUSINESS man will be best, though we have never had a business man before. So he has NO experience in government, no experience in military, no experience in foreign affairs.
            He can’t even get it right that Kim Davis was CORRECT. The SCOTUS only voided laws against homosexual marriages, (illegally, they had no authority from the Constitution as he Constitution does not address marriage).
            He still supports Planned Parenthood as far as anyone knows. He bribes people and admits it. And you think he is going to be ethical, moral, honest and good for the nation. lol.
            He IS A TROJAN HORSE.

          • I Seigel

            Bigoted? What gave you the idea I was bigoted? Against who?
            You’re one of the most close-minded, unobservant, clueless people I could possibly imagine. You have a set idea, whatever agenda you have, and you’re totally oblivious to the realities around you.
            I have faith in a man who throws tantrums? I believe a businessman will be best? I think he is going to be ethical and good for the nation? Bwaahh ha ha!
            Go back into your corner and gnaw on your bone some more, you single-minded, simpleminded imbecile. Take your multiple degrees with you. Get your money back – you haven’t benefitted one iota from all the time and effort people spent to try to educate you. I hope you’ve paid off your student loans by now.

          • ADRoberts

            You twisted it again. It was not the posting of Politichicks But you could not get the facts straight. And you immediately had to smear it.
            You missed the FACTS that were in the comment to the article on Politichicks. They were documented facts about what and who Trump; really is.
            You refused to read it. TYPICAL Trump-et.
            You believe a man who does ANYTHING to get his way will be “ethical and good” for the nation. LOL. And just when is he going to change his ways and start to be that person. My point exactly is that he has NO integrity.
            And you are very careful NOT to read it.
            You will surely be sorry. About May 2017, you will figure out that HE LIED.

            FACT: Trump won the NH primary. Believe it or not.
            FACT: Trump won the SC primary. Believe it or not.
            FACT: Many polls show that he’s ahead in many of the Super Tuesday primaries.
            FACT: The GOP rules, put in place before the campaigns even started, favor the frontrunner, because the GOP didn’t want an extended, messy campaign. They wanted everything settled WAY before the convention so that they could set their sights on Hillary.
            FACT: Currently, that frontrunner is Trump.

            None of the above statements are controversial, or indicate any bias or bigotry on my part. These are FACTS which you can believe or not. It makes no difference to me.

          • ADRoberts

            Fact: Polls are not facts. They are NOW just propaganda.
            And that last “fact” is not verifiable because I have a mind. And in my mind, he is still a charlatan and a Trojan horse. And the longer he talks, the more people who are seeing him for what he is.
            Now you can declare that I have refuted you on most of your points. By the way, NH was a given. After all, they are Yankees and don’t have much sense. SC was a disappointment. I guess to many were in the “WANT AN OUTSIDER” MODE and do not see his deception. But sooner or later, ALL of you will see that he is deceiving you. It is just a question of whether it will be too late.
            Now THAT is truth. And when you reject it, it makes NO DIFFERENCE TO ME.
            You see. I am ready to die, when these powerful elite craft the ANTICHRIST and all hell breaks loose.

          • I Seigel

            Wait! You’re the guy with degrees in Chemistry and Biology, right?!?!

            I haven’t read a statement this confusing and this funny in a long time: “And that last “fact” is not verifiable because I have a mind. And in my mind, he is still a charlatan and a Trojan horse. …
            Now you can declare that I have refuted you on most of your points.”

            So you’re saying here that because you disagree with something, it’s not a fact. And you can disagree because you have a mind? How very scientific of you!

            Did you do anything important with your degrees, like work in a crime lab or work on food safety or work on something to do with food additives? Whatever you did for your work, I hope it didn’t have any relationship to people’s health or welfare, because I would think everyone affected by your work could sue the living daylights out of you and your employers for malfeasance and just plain stupidity.

          • ADRoberts

            Got you again. You declared that everyone would have to agree. And I proved that EVERYONE did not agree, because I did not agree. And that negates your outrageous claim that was supposed to silence me.
            FAILED.
            And that i DID NOT AGREE is proof that not everyone agrees with your demand and assumption.
            Now you want to question what God did with my life. So I will tell you. In spite of my intelligence, I went to college with very poor self-image. I bet you are happy about that. I stuttered and just about could not carry a conversation. At college, I worked full time for five years and got the education. Some of those jobs required me to ignore myself and speak clearly and rapidly and distinctly. Was that part of the education? Yes. And it was by God’s design for my life.
            THAT was what I had to have to make it in life. And God gave it to me.
            Then he opened doors to another job where all I had to do with think, make decisions and SPEAK. I was a Fire Inspector for the city of Dallas for almost 5 years.
            So keep up the good work. Do your best to demean the work of God in my life. I know. You have to. Because you will do anything to win a discussion and defend your “PRECIOUS”.
            And then you PRETEND to come up with a scenerio that was nothing but an imaginary smear.
            Now a word from the Bible. “You will answer for every idle word.” Matthew 12:36

          • I Seigel

            I “declared that everyone would have to agree”? Could you please copy and paste my statement showing exactly that? I couldn’t find where I said that, and I don’t recall.

            If you believed that the Earth was flat, or the moon was made of green cheese, that doesn’t make it so. It just means you’re an idiot. So just the fact that you disagree with something doesn’t mean that the “thing” is wrong – it just means you choose to ignore the proven fact or collected wisdom of the many.

            As to my questioning “God’s design for my life”? I’m glad God helped you along your way. I sincerely doubt you would have succeeded on your own. Congratulations on overcoming your difficulties. Actually, I guess you can’t take credit for overcoming your own difficulties. Let me reword that: I’m glad God overcame your difficulties for you (the difficulties He gave you in the first place).

          • ADRoberts

            Let me be frank. I was and am tired of this discussion. I went from memory. Was I mistaken? I don’t care.
            Then I like your condescending smear of me not being able to make it without God. I guess that means that YOU THINK you did make it without God. You are a nasty person for such a saying.
            But then, you did call me an idiot.
            Now let me make a statement of opinion about you. You don’t have a claim to being a Christian. You don’t live in John 3:16 or John 14:12.
            You have no respect for anyone, just like Trump doesn’t, And you don’t care.
            God have mercy on you. Matthew 12:36 applies.

          • I Seigel

            OH BOY! OK, I have to admit that I went to Politichicks specifically to find the story you referred to, about the SC Primary. I found the comment by JeffH. I see that he copied and pasted a post from Kelly Hubbard, who signs her posts “****Kelly Hubbard O.C. Tea Party/Patriot/Conservative Activist”

            I see that JeffH has upvoted you a few times, and you two SEEM to be having a nice friendly conversation. I’m not making any value judgements, I’m just stating an observation, i.e., an observation only, no analysis.

            I see the items that Kelly Hubbard lists in her post. Because of her signature, I have to be a little wary of her comment, because she MIGHT, just MIGHT have a bias toward a particular candidate or against a particular candidate. Imagine if I were to be signing all my posts ” I Seigel…Socialist Democrat” or “I Seigel, former fighter for the Afghan Mujahadeen”. You’d get an immediate idea of my preferences and biases, right?

            When Kelly Hubbard or JeffH or you can get the mainstream media – any of the broadcast news organizations including ABC, FOX, CNN, CBS – or any of the right-wing meda – Breitbart, Drudge Rush – to widely publicize these items, then maybe they will get some publicity and some believers. The fact that they’ve been copied and pasted by a woman on a conservative website – and who knows where SHE got them from? – doesn’t lend them all that much credibility or publicity.

            Please try to use all your degrees to poke holes in my logic. I enjoy watching you tie yourself up in knots trying to argue with me. You’re quite entertaining, although very predictable.

          • ADRoberts

            Well you were doing just fine with ALL of your analysis until you got down to declaring that the items she mentioned were questionable. That is a problem because EVERY ONE OF THEM included where she got the information from and it was from sources that YOU can go and look at.
            So there was no BIAS and no twisting and no disinformation. Even the remarks about abortion indicated the date of the QUOTATION. And all you had to say was that he changed his mind. And I would have responded, “How convenient”.
            Now I have answered all of your statements and question. And it still remains. What she said about Trump IS TRUE. And you can’t refute a single point except to CLAIM that he changed his mind.
            There are more items that I have from other sources. My best one is where he intentional declared that Kim Davis should have obeyed the LAW OF THE LAND. Very true. Except that SHE DID. The SCOTUS canot make law. And therefore, their voiding laws that forbid homosexual marriages did NOT make a law that declared that those marriages were legal. There was NOTHING at all on the subject at all. So she did not have to issue a marriage license because it still was not authorized.
            Trump; should have known this, IF he were intelligent.
            And you have NOTHING that will refute this FACT.
            Then there is the FACT that Kentucky had a law that was supposed to protect government employees from action against their declared religious beliefs.
            Now. What do you have to say. I answered EVERYTHING.
            And Trump is still a Trojan Horse. He has come over from the radical liberal Democrats and is now claiming to be a conservative after about 4 decades of supporting those very liberal Democrats he will supposedly oppose. LOL

          • I Seigel

            Nope, sorry. You haven’t answered the only question that I asked, which was, “Bigoted? What gave you the idea I was bigoted? Against who? Locked into what idea?”

            All you’ve done is continue your silly tirade and answere “questions” that no one has asked or cared about.

            Have you ever read Don Quixote? Read the part about when he went to battle against windmills.

          • ADRoberts

            “No one is asking” Really. Do you believe any of the millions of posts are from people seekng tro answer questions? LOL. It is about ideas and opinions. Not answering questions. So you did a very POOR deflection, trying to silence me.
            As to you being bigoted, I believe you are the one who is solidly defending Trump. Am I wrong. And that in spite of all the signs that he is a deceiver trying to hijack the “conservative” agenda. That would mean that you are extremely prejudiced against anyone whose name is not Trump.
            A BIGOT is someone who is irrational in their position. And that would be you.
            Now, I have answered that question along with all the others you came up with and ignore because I answered them too.
            Good day.

          • I Seigel

            Ah, so you think that if someone has an opinion, that means they’re bigoted? Here’s what you said: “As to you being bigoted, I believe you are the one who is solidly defending Trump. ”

            And I’m still trying to figure out how you think I’m “extremely prejudiced” for Trump?? I can’t see anywhere that I’ve actually given an opinion about him. All I’ve done is repeat news, facts, poll numbers, etc. Those aren’t opinions, those are things people have reported and I’ve repeated. No opinions, no bigotry, no extreme prejudice. It’s you, because you have a mind, that has chosen to mouth off with your opinions that fly in the face of actual facts.

            So you have a good day, too, and thank you.

          • ADRoberts

            Very poor effort at twisting my words. No, it is when a person presents THEIR OWN OPINION as you did, that those who do not support Trump must be marxist, liberals and insane that I can say that you are bigoted.
            You, if I recall correctly, are one of them. If not. Go in peace.
            But Trump-ets are never able to not insult, just like you did.

            Not only are you a bigot, you are an arrogant bully.

          • I Seigel

            No, you do NOT recall correctly. I apologize if you can’t handle having your words read back to you. Maybe you shouldn’t say them? Maybe you should actually try to respond to what’s been said, rather than going off on your own ranting tangents?

            Opinions are not facts. My opinions aren’t facts. Your opinions aren’t facts. That’s why I don’t state my opinions. I state facts. You can choose to argue with facts or not, it makes no difference to me. You should try to learn the difference between an opinion and a fact.

            Have a nice day. I, too, am weary of this.

          • ADRoberts

            I reread much of the thread.
            You are an extreme TRUMP-ET
            You hang on a single detail like Trump wnning the SC primary but ignore ALL of that information I gave you by Kelly Hubbard.
            You WILL regret supporting the TROJAN HORSE.

          • I Seigel

            I stated the simple fact that Trump won the SC primary. It is an incontrovertible, non-negotiable FACT. That’s all I did. The information from Kelly Hubbard is irrelevant and beside the point. He WON! Deal with it.
            And again, if you’ll notice: I am not stating my opinion or any kind of support for anyone. I’m just simply stating a fact.

          • ADRoberts

            Good luck with that.
            This is an opinion and not a fact: This will be the third time America has been fooled and deceived.

          • I Seigel

            You are correct. That IS an opinion. And now I will offer one of my own: Your opinion is pretty accurate. The dumbing down of America is happening before our eyes. Kansas, Texas and other states are cutting education budgets and forbidding the teaching of “challenging subjects” and views that might be contrary to their parents. Texas does not want to teach “critical thinking” – look it up! For years Fox and conservative media have trashed scientists and experts in their fields on a wide variety of subjects. Listen to all the politicians who say, “Well, I’m no expert on _____, but common sense tells me that_____”. And so now you have a politician, Trump, who says he’s going to “be amazing” and “do wonderful things” and “we’re going to win again”, but doesn’t exactly explain any of it. And the people eat it up, like corn dogs and elephant ears at the county fair. People scratch their heads as they look back on how the Germans could possibly have been taken in by Hitler. Here’s a real-world, real-time example right now.

          • ADRoberts

            I did some substitute teaching back in the 80’s. I can tell you that MONEY does not make an education. In fact, it ssems that the more money that they throw out it, “for the kids”, the worse the education that is put out.
            When our local school district did not get all the money they wanted, did they cut back on the gravy and extras? No. Of course not. They cut back on the basics in order to make the kids the ones who got hurt. I was a bureaucrat in the 70’s. I know what it is about. And it is NOT about getting the job done. Not at any level.
            Now, I used to live in Texas, not that long ago. And I haven’t got the slightest idea what you are talking about with this “critical thinking” But I can guarantee you that just because it sounds like a good deal, does not mean that the reality is such. I am more inclined to trust the present administrators of education, (not the ones who are frantically trying to take over) to make good decisions. So let me guess. I would surmise that this “critical thinking” is a NEW program with a likelihood of very liberal overtones. Yes, I am very skeptical of “new” anything.

          • ADRoberts

            There are scientists and then there are plodders who only seek grant money. We KNOW about the “global warming” frantic efforts, of their fudging the data and just flat out lying to us. And you want me to believe these scientists. I have the science background. I know a little bit. And I can tell you that I am not the only one who does not see believing “new” discoveries that only work to stuff or economy. (That is a goal of the Bilderbergs)
            Now you have betrayed yourself as a socialist and a government control type person. The fact is the children are the Primary responsibility of the parents. And even though there are bad ones out there, the majority are GIVEN BY GOD and their judgement is MUCH BETTER than any government stooge, which you seem to think are superior. My wife was a pediatric nurse for decades. She knows first hand the failures of CPS to do the job of protecting children who were in real danger, while taking the kids away from parents who were excellent and doing a great job. After all. IT IS THE GOVERNMENT.

          • ADRoberts

            Then you do the “religion”: thing with Trump. YOU BELIEVE HIM, when he has nothing of substance to offer. He has not done a single thing to show that HIS ideas and proposals will make America great. Not a thing. But YOU BELIEVE HIM anyway. lol. All of this tells me that you are a secular who does not believe in or even know the Constitution. Our nation is about INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS. And that is not what you have espoused.
            Yes, the people eat it up. I have observed over my 67 years that a majority of people will prefer to believe LIES than the truth. That is why women are so easy to seduce. And I bet you have done that yourself, haven’t you.

            Then at the last, it seems that my understanding of what you are saying is 180 Degrees out of phase. You are saying that Trump is going to be just like Obama? Well, I guess I owe you an apology.
            That is exactly what I believe.

            Certainly, nobody should believe a man who has just come from a position of extreme liberalism and massive support of the very radicals who have done so much damage to America and then declare that he is suddenly a conservative.

            It is comparable to his claims of being a Christian when he also states that he has never asked God for forgiveness. That would be in character with his arrogance and absolute belief in himself. And it is backed up by his profanity at a religious college and his calling a book of the Bible, TWO Corinthians.
            As to your last statement, I differ slightly. I don’t believe he ever plans to do what he has been saying. He can’t build a wall between us and Mexico. But sheeple believe him when he says he will.
            HE IS LYING. And his statement about Kim Davis, “obeying the law of the land” shows that he is either stupid or uneducated about at least religious freedoms and rights.

      Trump will win…hands down!

      You and the democrats will be voting for trump because Bernie and Hillary are twin sisters… So no one cares who gets the nomination on the Democrat side… Never make decisions in anger sir you will live to regret it later… Anger always does that… I support Cruz… Because he is a brother in Christ…
