The Danger of Media Hype
By- Lorraine McQueeney
Who is supporting Ted Cruz? Other than my father at one time, based solely upon Cruz’s claim to be such a devout Christian (Cruz has uttered enough non-truths for Dad to see now that he is “Lyin’ Ted”), I have yet to encounter ONE person in my Northern New Jersey area, who supports Ted Cruz! Not townspeople, not parishioners, not PTA. I’m seeing one extreme or the other. A handful of people “feelin’ the Bern,” and the overwhelming majority going for Trump! New Jersey is definitely Trump strong!
So where are all these people who are supposedly “narrowing the margin” between Trump and Cruz? I have social media contacts cost-to-coast, 57 first cousins on my mother’s side alone, all voting age adults, with children and grandchildren who also vote. You’d think that among all of these people, including some Left coast Libbies “feelin’ the Bern” and some “pro choice” Hillary supporters, I would have found one person who goes on the record in support of Ted Cruz! Yet I haven’t. Not one. If the poll numbers were really as close as portrayed by the media, I’d be seeing Cruz supporters as well as people who have “changed their mind” about Trump, without having to go to Cruz’s FB page to find them!
These polls are nothing but another media lie, trying to undermine the American people. Don’t be fooled, folks. I’m finding that more people are seeing Cruz as the snake that he is, and solidifying behind Trump! Yes, politics makes strange bedfellows, as shown by Jeb Bush’s recent endorsement of Cruz. G.W. Bush has gone on record saying that he “just doesn’t like the man,” and Jeb doesn’t like him either. However, he dislikes Cruz a lot less than he dislikes Donald Trump, blaming Trump for labeling him “low energy” and ruining his campaign, when it was Jeb’s support of Mexican illegals that was his undoing. Therefore, the endorsement is disingenuous, made for no other reason than to get even with Trump by “giving” Cruz his supporters! What about the American people, Jeb? Don’t THEY matter? I guess they don’t!
Scott Walker has also endorsed Cruz and soon Paul Ryan will do the same, hoping that this will be enough to “ensure” a win for Cruz in Wisconsin. These endorsements continue to show just how out of touch Walker and Ryan are with the American people! Surely they can’t be dumb enough to believe the media “hype” that Cruz would beat Hillary in a General Election. This would NEVER happen, and I’ll tell you why:
We have a significant number of immoral and amoral people in this Country, people who are proud to say that they are either “not religious” or “non believers.” They see a vote for Cruz as being a vote for “organized religion.” So regardless of their low opinion of Hillary, her immoral stance on issues like abortion guarantees their vote, a vote against Evangelical Christianity. It’s as simple as that. The thought that the Republican “establishment” prefers to risk the safety of this nation by sacrificing this election to Clinton, rather than call for unity behind Trump, is mind boggling! They must have one HELL of an underground bunker in place where THEY can go, once the Muslims start attacking with the frequency they will attack with, should Hillary (or anyone other than Trump) become President!
One thing that may have given Cruz a “bounce” in the polls, was a statement taken straight from Donald Trump’s playbook, correctly calling for surveillance of Muslim neighborhoods in this Country. Quite frankly, this policy should have been implemented the day after the San Bernardino attack. It’s clear that people in the Muslim neighborhood where the terrorists lived, knew what they were planning. The “Imam” at the mosque in Riverside not only knew what Farook and Malik were planning, the mosque was and is still conducting recruitment efforts for ISIS and other radical Islamic groups!
We need to stop pretending that this isn’t happening, when it’s taking place in the majority of mosques across the Country, including the one recently visited by Obama! These “bleeding heart” Liberals with their “Big Brother” nonsense, condemning recommendation that Muslim neighborhoods should be closely monitored, sicken me! If adequate pressure was brought to bear in that California neighborhood, other Muslims would have dropped the dime on the Muslim terrorist couple, and an American wouldn’t be left to feel guilty for failing to report suspicious activity, concerned about appearing to be “racist”!
What kind of nonsense is that? If you see something, say something, and if people engaging in suspected criminal activity just so happen to be members of a minority class, this is incidental to the fact that they are people who may be planning to commit an act of violent crime!! Donald Trump is exactly right in each and every one of his recommendations with regard to policies dealing with Muslims, both here and abroad.
Speaking of which, some spineless fool was on the news this morning, condemning Trump for an alleged policy of “torture first, ask questions later.” He spoke as if Trump suggested pulling random Muslims off the street to water-board them, asking “what do you know?!” That’s ridiculous, as ridiculous as the media-spun contention that Donald Trump called for a ban of all Muslims from this Country! In reality, Trump correctly proposed a ban on Muslim refugees, based upon repeated warnings from Homeland Security that ISIS operatives have infiltrated the refugee population, intent upon coming here and attacking us!
I don’t know what is more frustrating – hearing the media lies over and over again when it comes to Donald Trump, or knowing how many “low information” people are buying into them! I agree with Trump that suspected Muslim terrorists and any other would-be terrorist should be water boarded or worse! That’s not torture to me. Torture is what was done to Americans abroad who were killed and beheaded by ISIS, leaving behind families to relive that torture on a daily basis. Torture is the American family on the phone with young loved ones in Belgium, having that call cut short by a bomb detonated by a crazed Muslim that cut these American lives short. Torture is the mother waving good-bye to her daughter and son-in-law at the airport in Belgium, only to have a bomb detonated by a crazed Muslim, turning that good-bye into a forever good-bye.
No form of interrogation is too harsh for this brand of evil, and any spineless American who disagrees should be ashamed! Had any of the victims of any of the Muslim terrorist attacks been members of their families, they’d be singing a different tune indeed! I find myself going back to the same general question to anyone in this Country who doesn’t support Trump, the one that comes after the natural question “What’s WRONG with you people?” of course!
That question is “do you really want America to come under attack again, and with such frequency that American cities like New York and Los Angeles, look like the Gaza strip?! I get it, some people have no idea what the Gaza strip looks like, and the only way their heads will come out of the sand is to be blown out, but it’s time for people to wake up and get OUT of denial! If anyone thinks for a minute, that if a Hillary Clinton is elected President or a Bernie Sanders is elected President or a Ted Cruz, John Kasich or Paul Ryan is elected President, that the Muslims won’t be bombing the “bleep” out of us, they’d better think again! My Muslim friends who are fully Americanized have been surfing the radical chats for me, knowing that my son works in NYC and knowing how concerned I am about another imminent attack there.
I’ll tell you the same thing that my Muslim friends tell me: Radical Muslims fear the election of only ONE U.S. PRESIDENT: DONALD TRUMP. This should be the foremost fact in every American’s mind, when they cast their vote. The consequences of a different outcome are dire to America and Americans.
