Glenn Beck can eat again and hopefully Rafael Cruz will receive a prophecy that Donald Trump will destroy Our Corrupt Lady of the Cankles in November. Ted Cruz dropped out of the race last night. Now Lindsey ‘Fredo’ Graham can enjoy a nice wine spritzer in celebration.

Here’s the deal. It wasn’t Ted’s year. AWD reported this last Fall. No one expected Donald Trump coming along and resonating with the American people. And no one, even the Big Sexy AWD his self, expected Trump to withstand his own gaffes and the hundreds of millions of dollars in attack ads aimed his way. But he did. In fact, throughout the media onslaught, he became more popular.

Here’s what AWD wrote about Cruz in February in a post titled HERE’S WHAT THE REMAINING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES SHOULD DO:

Ted Cruz – Ted will do better in NH than expected. He is the one the Establishment hates. They realize they can manipulate Trump because Trump doesn’t really know what he believes. Cruz is another story. He’s a conservative who wants to destroy the Establishment and has the chops to do so. Cruz should stop his attacks on Trump and concentrate on Rubio. He should concentrate on destroying Obama, Hillary, the Dims and the Establishment. Even if 2016 isn’t his year, he will set himself up for ’20 or ’24. Ted should stop preaching religion and concentrate on the Constitution and destroying Washington.

Ted didn’t listen to ye olde AWD. He stayed on the attack against Trump until the end, even saying Trump would call for riots from his supporters if Donald doesn’t win the nomination. This is after he blamed the leftist riot in Chicago (aka Barackistan) that shut down a Trump rally on Trump!

In March, AWD wrote HERE’S WHY TED CRUZ LOST ME AS A SUPPORTER. Certainly I would have voted for Ted but when his campaign pisses off a conservative like AWD, you’re doing it all wrong, junior.

Ted made a few yuuuuge mistakes in his campaign.

  • As mentioned, he centered his message around attacks on Trump.
  • Next, he allowed Neal Bush onto his finance campaign team. For conservatives, this is as repulsive as salad is to Rosie O’Donnell. The Bush family disparaged Ted but there is no doubt there is a strong connection. Smells of Establishment and just another politician who says one thing but does another and allows himself to be bought to win office. Sorry Ted, we’re full up on those!
  • Glenn Beck and Ted’s father Rafael Cruz did him no favors. Being told Ted is the Anointed One chosen by the Almighty redlines the needle on the Kook-o-Meter. Especially when Beck delivers the message while rolling his face in Cheetos. Really, Beck? Did you think that one up yourself? Something tells me more layoffs are a coming over at Beck TV-landia!
  • Rafael Cruz has always been Ted’s biggest cheerleader but, let’s be honest, Evangelical preachers and the Religious Right run off a whole hell of a lot of voters. Does anyone REALLY believe abortion is the biggest problem America faces? America is at it’s least religious time in history. I’m not saying that’s good but Ted allowing his campaign to be taken over by two nutty preachers didn’t help him. How quickly everyone forgets the Tea Party movement surged to relevancy in the early days of the movement by keeping social issues out of its platform! That was before the Establishment got their hooks and dollars into Tea Party pockets and usurped the movement.
  • His bragging of a landslide victory in Colorado when the people of Colorado were not allowed to vote didn’t sit well with primary voters across the country. Colorado’s vote was made by delegates. It’s legal but it ain’t right. And bragging he won a landslide vote in Colorado was disingenuous at best.
  • Lastly, choosing Carly Fiorina as his VP when he had no viable way to win the nomination without backroom skullduggery was sickening to watch. Carly Fiorina is another Establishment hack and a loser. Choosing her as a VP will hurt Ted in the future. As it should.

I am very disappointed with Ted after his campaign. His behavior certainly raises questions about his honesty and ethics. I love what he has done as a Senator in taking on the Establishment. He needs to stay there and do more. Maybe he can help us forget he looked like a desperate man who wanted to be POTUS so bad that he forgot who he was. Or did he?

Should have listened to AWD.



  1. Dear AWD:
    If you are so angry and conservative, why does your web site feature ads touting “Obama’s Fixed Rate Mortgage” and Steven Hawking (who is obviously on some kind of alien life support system because everyone knows he underwent an extra-terrestrial abduction in 1984, hence his higher intelligence quotient)?

    • Tim, the ad companies supply ad content but I believe the ads are somewhat personalized based on the person’s interests. Oh, and I am conservative but not angry. That’s what liberals like to say about white conservative males. The name of this blog ridicules the labels liberals place on us.


    • Hawking abducted by aliens? Tim, seriously bro, lay off the ganja. Stoned, stupid, and liberal is no way to go through life, son.

      • I heard Hawking was abducted by a bunch of Playboy Bunnies, but couldn’t do anything about it… ;P

  2. Ted’s main problem for me was that he did not explain his association with the Bush II administration and it’s policies, which smacked of obfuscation. His wife’s work on the “Building a North American Community” project, CFR membership, Goldman Sachs employment and Bush White House connections betray Cruz as a stealth NeoCon crony playing the part of “rock-ribbed” conservative. He was also weak on the illegal invasion and H1B visa issues from the start.

    Aside from all of that, he was a naturalized citizen born in Canada to a Cuban exile father with ties to the 26th of July Movement, NOT a natural born US citizen. There is some solid information that his father was a communist revolutionary, unable to immigrate into the US, and therefore moved to the Castro-friendly environs Canada where Ted was born. The “natural born citizen” stipulation is intended to prevent people who lacked singular loyalty to the US from attaining the highest office in the land, and Ted was still dual citizen after entering the presidential race.

  3. Disgusted Caucasian

    Beck and his golden handcuff wearing stooges threw a hissy fit this morning on the air. They called Trump all the things the demonrats would call a Conservative. Those morons are convinced that Trump is a “racist dictator” and will “destroy the country.” Beck and his loser flunkies, are promising to continue the “never Trump” campaign I wouldn’t put it past Beck, Levin and other Trump haters to organize a third party run to ensure Trump doesn’t make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Let’s hope that the old Communist rust bucket Sanders is pissed enough to run as an independent Socialist after the screwing the demonrat party bosses gave him.

  4. Disgusted Caucasian

    Has anyone checked in on Bluto to make sure he didn’t hang himself?

  5. I may be off-base, here, but when you connect the dots with Cruz saying he WASN’T getting out, win or lose, Trump highlighting daddy Cruz’s maybe probable association with Lee Harvey Oswald and that God awful dropping out speech, where he knocks over his loving wife (numerous times) to hug his father, he COULD HAVE been telling his father he was dropping out to take the heat off him.

    “It was Barzini all the time”

    I know, I know…….and islam is the religion of peace and man-made global warming is real….

  6. Midwest Constitutionalist

    Theres always 2020, Ted Cruz just needs to keep fighting for the people of Texas and keep pressuring the Washington cartel.

  7. Ted Cruz has very likely done himself so much damage with all his lies, flip-flopping, underhanded behavior, sneaking around and trying to bribe and steal delegates from states that Trump won handily, and then using his establishment connections to outright cancel elections in two or three states and gobble up all of the delegates as if he had actually ‘won’ them – that I am convinced that this rat is going to have a tough time getting reelected to his Senate seat.

    Ted Cruz is the epitome of the sort of two-faced, double-talking, flip flopping, dishonest politician that the overwhelming majority of traditional conservatives are sick of and want gone from our government.

  8. AWD, I’m glad you’re over your romantic infatuation with Rafael Jr. Not too long ago you professed your ‘love’ for him, and told your readers that we should simply ‘deal with it!’.

    You’re obviously a wise man who is capable of learning from experience and changing his ideas about people and things when new information had been received and processed. It was painful for a lot of us to learn that Cruz is not who we imagined (and wanted) him to be.

    Hopefully, he can experience some kind of personal transformation that allows him to recover his lost integrity and make a positive contribution to America in the future.

  9. Did Sean Hannity write this for you, AWD? I especially love the part about “honesty and ethics”. Are you freaking kidding me? Trump is out there saying that Ted had affairs with multiple women and that his dad was in on the JFK assassination, but of course you say nothing about that. This will help you with page views I’m sure from the Trump fans.

    Btw, you’re stabbing a guy in the back who is basically standing alone in trying to stop Obama and the GOP establishment.

    • Jon,
      Stop whining, the votes are in and the best man won according to the will of the people. If you’re still butt-hurt over Lyin’ Ted losing, then change your affiliation to Democrat and vote for Hillary or Bernie, and you can help them destroy what’s left of this country. At least Trump is not part of the establishment, and just might keep a few of his campaign promises, unlike every professional politician who’s been elected in the last hundred years. Or even better yet, how about you get on board with the Republican nominee, and help stop Hillary or Bernie? And don’t give me that bullshit excuse that there’s no difference between Trump and Hillary, if Hillary is elected, then you can say goodbye to the Second Amendment, and any personal autonomy that you may have, as Hillary will become a REAL tyrant, and you’ll have to have government permission to do something as simple as taking a shit.

      I personally don’t give a shit what Trump does once he’s in office, as long as he keeps ONE promise, and that’s to get illegal immigration under control (for me), or at least to re-negotiate the international treaties that are screwing this country in the ass without the courtesy of a reach around.

      Now before you start with the lies that Ted isn’t a part of the establishment, you can explain how that’s true with him being controlled by Goldman-Sachs.

      Your turn, knock yourself out.

    • Your guy lost me after the Chicago riot where he and the leftist media blamed Trump. Ted has also been threatening that Trump supporters would riot in Cleveland. Not good of Ted.

    • Midwest Constitutionalist

      Jon u are right on my friend the only people in the Senate right fighting for the people are Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul. Ted Cruz was the only proven conservative in the race.

  10. Desert Rat

    AWD, I know you are a Texan, and once a great believer in Cruz, but what specifically has he accomplished? I know he pisses off the RINO’s by shutting down the government, which I thought was a great thing but what else?

    1. Illegal immigration? From what I have read, he doesn’t or didn’t really care about securing the border until Trump came along? Didn’t he pass out Teddy Bears and soccer balls with Beck.
    2. Trade? Voted for this, but really voted for that? Again, not a strong stance.
    3. Constitutionalist? Okay he probably is, which is strong.
    4. Pro Gun or a hunter? Does he hunt really? He looks like he doesn’t have a clue.
    5.  What has he done for Texas?  Gun rights, limiting govt. etc.
    Not trying to insult you at all, respect your views, love this site of course, but I really don’t see the attraction of Cruz, with the exception that he was a Tea Party guy once. I love that he gets under the skin of the establishment, but he seems to have totally lost his mind, since Trump got in the race.

    I don’t believe the GOP, including Cruz wanted to talk about immigration or trade until Trump jumped in the race, could be wrong, but don’t think so?

  11. For me, it was Cruz all the way. My biggest disappointment with him was his constant responses to ‘attacks’ on himself & his own ‘attacks’ & name calling. I thought he was above this. Apparently I was wrong. Hopefully he’ll grow past such nonsense.
