Trump and Clinton are both Rothschild puppets.
When we most recently showed the latest short list of candidates for top Trump cabinet positions, we presented the following names in the running for Attorney General:
- Rudy Giuliani
- Jeff Sessions, senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee who takes a hard line on immigration
- Chris Christie, Republican New Jersey governor
- Pam Bondi, Republican Florida Attorney General
- Trey Gowdy, Republican congressman from South Carolina who headed the House committee that investigated the 2012 attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya
We can now add one more: according to Bloomberg, Donald Trump is considering nominating Texas Senator Ted Cruz to serve as U.S. attorney general.
In some ways, the scandal that took place last night at the Republican national convention, was not a surprise.
Reportedly those who mattered, knew in advance what was coming. As Bloomberg writes, earlier in the day, Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort said he would be personally viewing the Cruz speech in advance. “I’m comfortable that Senator Cruz is going to talk about his vision for America,” Manafort said. “He’ll give a sign of where he is on Donald Trump that will be pleasing to the Trump campaign and to Republicans.” Cruz told Trump two days ago he wouldn’t be endorsing him Wednesday night, and that the Trump folks knew what to expect in his speech, according to Cruz strategist Jason Johnson.
In his first statement since unleashing the fury of Trump supporters at the RNC, Ted Cruz on Thursday morning defended distancing himself from Donald Trump, saying he won’t vote for Trump “like a service pully dog”, adding that he is not voting for Clinton, while ripping the Republican National Convention’s response to his speech the night before.
Update 3: Chris Christie unloaded on Cruz… (as Politico reports)
Chris Christie did not mince words for Ted Cruz after the Texas senator refused to endorse Donald Trump on the prime-time convention stage Wednesday night.
“It was an awful, selfish speech by someone who tonight, through the words he said on that stage, showed everybody why he has richly earned the reputation that he has on Capitol Hill,” Christie said to reporters on the floor of the convention.
It’s all over but the press conference (and perhaps elbowing his wife in the face). Watch John Kasich announce he is taking the exterminaTed way out, and also suspending his presidential campaign one day after Ted Cruz did the same, and leaving Donald Trump the official GOP candidate.
Update: as expected, Kasich’s announcement will be that he is indeed suspending his campaign, and with that Trump is the official presidential candidate of the Republican party.

It appears that less than one day after Ted Cruz announced he is quitting the race, the last hurdle to Donald Trump becoming the official GOP candidate instead of just the “presumptive” one, is about to fall: according to CNN’s Phil Mattingly the republican challenger has just cancelled a press conference in Virginia and will make a statement in Ohio this afternoon at 5pm. We assume it is to announce he too is withdrawing from the race.

Ted Cruz is quitting the presidential race, according to campaign manager Jeff Roe, ending one of the best-organized campaigns of 2016 after a series of stinging defeats left Donald Trump as the only candidate capable of clinching the nomination outright.
Cruz had appeared likely to go all the way to the Republican convention, but a string of massive losses in the Northeast, and his subsequent defeat in Indiana, appear to have convinced him there’s no way forward.
His wife bore th3 brunt of his frustration…
Live stream from the Donald Trump victory press conference:
Update 2: In a stunning development, Bernie Sanders has taken the lead over Hillary Clinton, as Hillary’s original lead of some 4% has evaporated, and with 33% of votes counted, Bernie Sanders now leads 51.6% to 48.4%.

Moments ago, Trump was declared the winner of the Indiana Primary; Hillary’s lead over Sanders is about 3% and declining, which is why the networks refuse to call her victory yet.

With the polls in eastern Indiana closed (the last polls in the western part of the state are open until 7pm Eastern), the first results come in, and in early counting of the available votes, Trump has a daunting 53% lead over Cruz’s 33% and Kasich at 11%, while Hillary leads Bernie Sanders 58% to 43%.
If Trump’s 50%+ lead remains largely unchallenged, it is difficult to see how the New York real estate billionaire will fail to accumulate the required threshold of votes before the Republican convention in July.
The pressure of tonight’s “must-win” Indiana primary appears to have gotten to Ted Cruz who one week after being hailed as Lucifer and a “son of a bitch” by John Boehner, exploded in an epic anti-Trump rant of his own, calling the republican frontrunner “an utterly amoral, narcissist,” a “serial philanderer” and a “pathological liar.”
As The Hill adds, Cruz prefaced his comments by saying that for the first time, he wanted to say exactly what he though of Trump after the GOP frontrunner suggested his father might have had something to do with the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
“I’m going to do something I haven’t done the entire campaign. I’m going to tell you what I really think of Donald Trump. This man is a pathological liar. He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth. And in a pattern that I think is straight out of a psychology text book, his response is to accuse everybody else of lying.”
