Ted Cruz, opportunist  that   he is, once again shows how devious, manipulative, and dishonest that he is.  Cruz, did not show up for the vote to audit the Federal Reserve because of his wife's deep involvement with Goldman Sachs and their indebtedness to Goldman Sachs.  The Federal Reserve bailed out Goldman Sachs during the financial collapse of 2008.  Goldman Sachs is closely tied to the Federal Reserve for all of its borrowing needs.  Cruz is over his head in big money donations from the people and companies that he refers to as "capitalists cronies on Wall Street",  and  that he criticizes. 
If Cruz had been in tune with the Republicans voters back in Texas, he would have known that this is an important vote for his constituency.  The Platform of the Texas Republican Party called for the Federal Reserve to be abolished.  Cruz did not come up through the grass roots, so he would not have known that.   He was appointed to office in Texas.  Then he latched on to the Tea Party to get elected as Senator.      
There is something about human nature that you can't hide for too long.  His colleagues in the Senate, have seen this part of his human nature, and realize that Ted is all about Ted and furthering his own ambition.  All of these people who have worked with him in the Senate say the same thing.  They don't trust him, not because he leached on to the Tea Party agenda, to get elected to the Senate, but because he is self promoting, self staging, and self serving.  Everything that Cruz did in the Senate was to gain popularity and notoriety, setting himself up to run for President.  
Ted Cruz has hidden many things about himself from the public.  First, that he ran for the Senate as a dual citizen of Canada and America. Second, he took the Senate oath to defend the Constitution, knowing that he owed allegiance to Canada at the same time.  You can't tell me that a Harvard Law School trained lawyer did not know he was a Canadian and an American.  If he had not with held this important information about himself, and his family, he never would have been elected Senator.  In my opinion, Cruz is fundamentally a dishonest person, in the way in which he approaches the practice of law, and the way in which he twists the Constitution to meet his personal agenda. 
Second, Ted Cruz has hidden, in his financial disclosure, that he and his wife had borrowed 1,000,000 dollars from his wife's employer, Goldman Sach, to finance his campaign.  Again, Cruz, the Harvard lawyer, plays dumb, and pretends that he did not know of this failed financial disclosure.  
Third, every opportunity that Ted Cruz gets, he is in New York, begging big money donors for money for his campaign.  Yet, he has the audacity to denigrate the people of New York and New York itself for its values.  
Fourth, there are bound to be even more things that we don't know about Ted Cruz, that would be pertinent to know, in considering a vote for Ted Cruz.  Cruz will never disclose these things unless he gets caught and is force to admit them.  However, he will always find a way to divert from his guilt, and point to others, or other reasons for his mistakes.
Ted Cruz does not deserve our Tea Party votes! 
Donald Trump is not beholding to any large donors,  lobbyists or special interests.  He is deserving of our votes, and he will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! 
As a side note, if Ted Cruz were to win the Republican nomination for President, he would be unelectable.  Hillary Clinton would win by a landslide.  Cruz will not attract Hispanic voters.  He has tried to identify more as a Caucasian than as a Hispanic.  He is insulted when you speak to him in Spanish. He makes it known that he does not speak Spanish, in spite of his Cuban father and his Cuban heritage. 
Most Hispanics in Texas say that would not vote for him as President because they don't identify with him as Hispanic.  He rejected his birth name, which is his father's name, and adopted a European nick name of "Ted" for Eduardo.  His driver's license lists his race as Caucasian.  Rafael Eduardo (Ted) Cruz seems to have a self identify problem. 
I hope Republican voters, starting with the Iowa Caucuses will  remember this discussion when they cast their votes.  Ted Cruz is deceitful and dishonest on so many levels, in spite of using "the body of Christ" to win over voters.   
Cruz has demonstrated what a deceitful, " Bible toting" crook that he is. He spoke like a Baptist preacher when he was in Iowa, trading on the deep Evangelical beliefs of the people of Iowa, wrapping himself in "the body of Christ". This is the way born again Christians speak, and Cruz used it to his advantage. At the same time, while he was talking about the "body of Christ", Cruz was apparently devising every under handed, mean, vile and crooked way to win the Iowa election.

"Ted Cruz is untrusted."

Donald Trump is a Genius – But That’s Just His IQ!
by Samuel Orrin Sewell, PhD
The most well known high IQ society is Mensa.  To join Mensa one must score in the top 2% of a standardized IQ test.  That really isn’t all that outstanding.  One out of 50 people have IQs high enough to join Mensa. 
Numerical IQ scores are not an accurate indicator of intelligence.  For instance a score of 72 on the U.S. Navy GCT test is about equal to score of 150 on the WAIS (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale).  Percentile IQ scores are a more informative measurement.
Way back during the 2004 presidential election I wrote an article that shook up the major news networks and the New York Times.  I was able to document that George Bush had a higher IQ score and better grades than John Kerry.  I belong to one of those high IQ societies, and I am a psychotherapist, so I have a credible background to evaluate Mr. Trump, even though my opinions are speculative.
Please keep in mind that IQ is a measure of intellect not character.  I will comment on Donald Trump’s character later in this article.
Donald Trump graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1968, with a Bachelor of Science degree in economics and anthropology.  Mensa doesn't accept SAT scores from after 1994.  However Mr Trump was a student at Wharton when it was possible to derive an accurate IQ core from known SAT scores.   Given the usual requirements for admission to a top school like Wharton, I estimate that Mr. Trump has a 156 IQ at the minimum. 
The standard description of this level of intelligence is “Genius - Exception intellectual ability and capable of looking beyond known facts.”  However, the percentile rating is more revealing than the raw score.  A 156 IQ is at the 99.9905490555 percentile.  That means that Donald Trump is smarter than 99.99 percent of the people on planet earth.  Not only does Trump qualify for membership in Mensa but he could join the Triple Nine Society.
People with this kind of intellectual ability can do things with their minds that can’t even be described to ordinary people.  Remember that quote from the above paragraph, “capable of looking beyond known facts?”  These highly intelligent minds process and organize data into solutions and insights, and the individual person is not even  consciously aware of the process.  The cartoon light bulb that goes on over someone’s head happens to people like Mr. Trump on a regular basis.  I would not be surprised if Mr Trump’s  IQ actually measures significantly higher than the minimum estimate mentioned above.
Enough about how smart Mr. Trump is.  I was motivated to write this article because of the personality traits that are revealed in Mr. Trump’s behavior.  His character traits are every bit as fascinating as his intellect.
Abraham Maslow, the American Psychologist and philosopher best known for his self-actualization theory of psychology, spent most of his professional career trying to identify what was right with people, rather than looking at pathology.  Maslow did extensive research to define the traits of a “self actualized” person.  My wife and professional partner is also a high IQ person.  She makes the point that a better term is “self actualizing,” correctly pointing out that there isn’t state of personality to be achieved, but rather the individual is in the process of becoming his best self.
Donald Trump’s observable behavior informs us about the degree to which he is “self actualizing.”  Quote from a Psychology Professor I once had; “People are not whoyou think they are. People are not who they think they are. People are what they do. That is why this is called a behavioral science". Forget the labels. They are all misleading. Pay attention to the behavior.
Here are some examples of the Traits of a Self Actualized Person, from Maslow’s own research:
·       They resist enculturation. 
Self-actualizers tend to be nonconformists, since they are inner-directed people.  If a cultural norm is contrary to their personal values, they simply will not adhere to it.
They are almost always loners, or leaders.  They are never joiners. Yup. That sounds like the “Donald” to me!
·       They are creative.
Maslow found this trait in all of the self-actualizers.
“This is a universal characteristic of all the people studied or observed.  There is no exception. This creativeness appears in some of our subjects not in the usual forms ofwriting books, composing music, or producing artistic objects … It is as if this special type of creativeness being an expression of healthy personality is projected out upon the world, or touches whatever activity the person isengaged in.  In this sense there can be creative shoemakers or carpenters or clerks. This creativity comes from the fact that self-actualizers are more open to experience and more spontaneous in their feelings. 
Yes, Donald is always coming up with new creative ways of seeing things differently and solving problems.
·       They are autonomous and therefore tend to be independent of their environment.  
 Because self-actualizers are B-motivated rather than D-motivated, they are more dependent on their own inner world than on the outer world. Deficiency motivated people must have other people available since most of their main need gratifications (love safety. respect, prestige, belongingness) can come only from otherhuman beings.  But growth motivated [B-motivated] people may actually be hampered by others. The determinants of satisfaction, and of the good life, are for them inner & individual, and not social.  They have become strong enough to be independent of the goodopinion of other people, or even of their affection.  The honors, the status, the rewards, the popularity, the prestige and the love others can bestow must have become less important than self-development and inner growth.”
Donald frequently says that he doesn’t plan what he is going to say.  It is obvious that his strategy is to simply be authentic.
·       They have a strong ethical sense.
Although their notions of right and wrong are often unconventional, self-actualizers, nonetheless almost always know the ethical implications of their own actions.  
Right and wrong (good and evil) are part of every decision Donald makes.
·       They tend to accept democratic values.
Self-actualizers do not respond to individuals on the basis of race, status or religion.  They can be and are friendly with anyone of suitable character regardless of class, education, political belief, race or color.  As a matter of fact, it often seems as if they are not even aware of these differences, which are for the average person so obvious and important. 
Donald is as likely to treat his chauffeur or secretary as equitably as  CEOs or politicians.
·       They tend to identify with all of mankind.
The concerns that self-actualizers have for other people do not extend only to their friends and family, but to all people in all cultures throughout the world. This feeling of brotherhood extends also to individuals who are aggressive, inconsiderate, or otherwise foolish.  Self-actualizers have a genuine desire to help the human race.
Donald consistently shows a universality of concern for all people.
·       They exhibit spontaneity, simplicity and naturalness.  
Self-actualizers tend to be true to their feelings; what they really feel they tend to say and/or experience. They do not hide behind a mask, and do not act in accordance with social roles.  They are true to themselves, speaking candidly and authentically. 
One of the traits that makes Donald so popular with voters is that he is “real.”
There are many other observations to be made about Mr. Trump being a “self actualizing” person.  However, let it suffice to observe that Donald Trump is a brilliant man with a healthy personality.  It should be pointed out that “self-actualizing” people are not what most human resources departments are looking for.  Most executives want those who will follow the manual and fit into the corporate culture.  That does not describe Donald Trump. 

Maybe the voters of America share some of the same biases as executives.  Perhaps what we need is a rebel genius with self actualized traits to be our President.  Lord knows we have tried enough of the other kind of leader.

My IQ is 153 so where does that put me ? And I was tested in my 60's with a long LONG   L O N G   tedious test. And I had gone 3 days with no sleep which didn't help get through it.   It was at least 3-4 hours long ! I was not at my best but I did the best I could. I got a 153 -- so did I do good ?

I read that GW Bush's IQ measured 74 - was that true ?

I would have loved to know  Thomas Jefferson's IQ - he is the smartest man who was ever in this country !  He mastered 5 languages fluently, writing and reading and speaking them  by age 5 and was doing college courses by age 11. And most of it was self taught before college. It's  said no other man ever walked in this land with the intelligence and smarts as he had.


...and he said;

"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe." - Thomas Jefferson

...and we are now at 85% of the population 'piled upon one another in large cities', and at least as corrupt as Europe.

yeah, smart man - no doubt. understood the unchanging traits of humanity well.

Hi Marilyn,
I'm not at home but just wanted to tell you I really enjoyed your last post.

So much jabber about the Framers' intent.  Yet, I've seen no reference to The Federalist Papers.  That's where the intent, the spirit, of the USConstitution (PRIOR to The Reconstruction Amendments ) can be found.

Not so. 

There were two sides with the situation at that time (still is) one, the Founders with their Common Law ,  and the Federalist who stood more with the British Roman system of law and operation.  The Federal side are the Federalist Papers.  And then the Founders who were standing for Common Law - the law this land was established on as AMERICA, had the ANTI-FEDERALIST   PAPERS.

The main  Founders did not want to repeat whet they had left in Europe.  They wanted this New World to BE "new and different" from the Dictatorship and conglomeration of nations under that one Dictatorship.  The Federalists were loyal to Britain - many of them however changing their minds along the way as they saw that freedom served the people so much better.  Many of the Founders who began as Federalists, changed their minds and became freedom fighters for a free America. Madison and Hamilton were two of them.

To prevent the European disaster from happening here , the Founders set Ameica up as each state being their own nation with their own govt and law, and the DC operation was to be only for Foreign trade and protecting America's outer borders from invasion.  As we can see they could not even be trusted to do the few things they were assigned to !  They were to have NO power over any state and not a part of any state - DC would stand alone for just the duties that were DELEGATED to it. ALL power was given to the states and the people !

DC is not to have ANY power or interference inside the borders of America. 

To further protect this land the Founders established TWO American nations - North and South and indeed they made up totally different people.  So the culture was totally different and one nation was not to disturb the other nation.

The experiment was = They would share one general government, since the DC general govt had only a few things they were responsible for and all states were to be represented (via senators).

Everything was established so freedom would thrive and thus the country would thrive.

That was all in place and operating until the first Communist infiltrator line man was put in power in DC who changed everything to be the opposite of how the Founders established it.  His name was Lincoln !

The real America died in 1861 with him. And so did freedom !


Sen Cruz and Sen Rubio are not Art. II, §I, Cl. 5 natural born citizens

This case has been neatly laid out by Bruce McKay in his recent dissertation on the subject entitled: "STATUTES, AMENDMENTS CANNOT RENDER ONE "NATURAL BORN"

David since both lawyers, Rubio and Cruz, know the law are they not lying to the people in their respective drive to become president? The issue of NBC was raised early in the Obama campaign and it was well known that the courts below and on high avoided the issue. This precedent gave grounds currently that this standard no longer applies. Some now think that an illegal immigrant is eligible to run for president. Shamefully that our law schools do not protest.

This is how they think they can change the Constitution - which is TREASON  ---hello....

 It is more then just  a "standard" - it's the Constitutional  LAW !

And they "wouldn't lie " ????  Come on - they are LAWYERS !

Experts at twisting laws. THAT is what lawyers get paid to do !

And both lawyers have been caught in many lies of all kinds so far.

The courts were threatened by the Obama gang if they took on any case against Obama - so they refused the cases. Judges had death threats.

And the one brave court and judge (believe it or not in Calif of all places)  that took the case and ruled Obama NOT eligible, has been ignored !  His ruling not obeyed ! So the Obama gang who is controlling this whole land and everyone in it, is above all courts, laws, and Constitutions !  The Obama gang believes they are above GOD !    A TOTAL  DICTATORSHIP and I don't think the public realizes just how deadly this gang is ! It is worse and more deadly than the worst Mafia you ever read about !

Trump's life is in danger - these are KILLERS in DC, and they will not give up power without a down and dirty fight !  And their way of fighting is by assassinations !

Did you know that NATO has an actual assassination division ?! It is run by the CIA and two other agencies. one being the SECRET SERVICE.  They plan and carry out assassinations. Now when you have those who are suppose to be "guarding the life of a president" as the assassins, where do you think that leads to ?!



I don't think anyone realizes the killers that run DC !

DC is just a pit of vipers = poisonous  vipers !

Everyone in the past 30 years, who has been president murdered his way there !

This is not AMERICA anymore for a long time folks !  Now if you run for office and are a decent person and not part of the OWG gang, your life is on the line just as it always was in the Muslim countries in the Middle East - they too always killed the opposition.

This is the  PELICAN  BRIEF all over again  IN REAL LIFE !

Look up Operation Northwoods  and Operation  Gladio

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
