Ted Cruz’s Father is a Communist Cuba Refugee

    A FACT that some Americans might be unaware of is that Ted Cruz’s Father is actually a refugee from Communist Cuba ~ We all know Ted Cruz has other issues shadowing his campaign, but once the majority of conservatives find out his father lived in a RED Country while growing up, how much do you think this “Communist Cuba Connection” will hurt his effort? ~  By now, I think we all understand the fact that Progressives welcome a DIVERSE Society while conservative republicans are collectively intolerant of Immigrants, Racial Diversity, Religious Freedom, and Accepting Refugees who wish to enter the United States, regardless of the country of origin ~ What shall be consequences for this radical republican candidate? ~

      Of course, the conservatives will ignore information contrary to their beliefs and objective, whether it is true or not.

      Didn't they harrass the Obama campaign endlessly over this minister of the church he attended and his political viewpoints? Well this is Cruz' Dad, a bigger target and definitely fair game!

      Obama's father and mother are (respectively), a communist, and a communist sympathizer. On top of that, we know little to nothing about the details of Barack's education (other than he went to Occidental College). And on top of that, we have the fact that Barack had little qualification to be president (he's a community organizer, for goodness' sake). If these things didn't hurt Obama's campaign, I doubt this will hurt Cruz's.

      At the end of the day, the opinion viewers get from the media is what decides elections (case in point: 2008 and 2012), not any interest in facts, past actions and policy, etc.

      I mean, if the average voter were informed about anything relevant, Hillary Clinton would be behind bars, not running for president. Kinda sad, the state of today's voting populace.

        This is Truly Laughable, I know the Obama's have been called many things by CONservatives, but "Communists" ? That's a new one smile But why not throw it on the PILE of Bull ~

        You conveniently NEGLECTED to mention President Obama was also a United States Senator prior to his Presidential Tenure ~ Community Organizers do vitally important work, and I would say all that EXPERIENCE and Talent came in handy when he "Organized" one of the most successful Campaigns in History ~

        Believe me, Hillary would indeed be behind bars if she had committed ANY Crimes, the Right Wing Nut Jobs would have seen to that, but unfortunately for you my dear Twerk, she is a clean as they come ~ The ONLY individual who is in deep legal trouble as a result of the Republican Led Benghazi Committee SHAM is the Chairman CONservative Trey Gowdy for Defamation and perhaps additional charges in the future ~

        I am satisfied with Obama's record. Are you not the arrogant here? Obama won in both 2008 and 2012 by goodly margins. Are all these people according the rightwing playbook uneducated or misinformed? I doubt it. The state of the voting populace is a lot smarter than you give them credit for....  This attitude is why the rightwinger and their candidate will and must continue to lose and they will again in 2016.

      I have to side with ahorseback on this one. (Yes, it appears hell has frozen over)

      Ted Cruz's father being a cuban refugee should have absolutely no sway on how republicans feel about him.  Being a refugee from that country somewhat clinches that.

      By now, I think we can all see that those who claim to be progressive aren't really. Conservative republicans are not, as a whole, intolerant of immigrants, racial diversity, religious freedom and accepting refugees who wish to enter this country regardless of country of origin.

      I see the conservatives as those who may look at all of the facts we have available and putting the safety of the citizens already here ahead of the needs of potential citizens. I don't agree with them, yet I can't fault them.

      Name calling, as you are doing here in this thread, can be perceived as childish and counterproductive. A horseback appears to perceive it that way, and there is ample reason to understand why he might.

        Live to Learn ~ Obviously, you're just a  "Casual Observer" of Politics if at all, otherwise, you'd understand that my Comments are as close to the TRUTH as you can possibly get ~ They are EASILY Verified for those who wish to take the time to do so ~

        Just in case you've missed the FACTS, here are a few for the RECORD ~

        * Ted Cruz was NOT Born in the United States he was Born in Canada and given the INSANE Birther Nonsense President Obama has gone through for the last 7 years due to CONservative Republican Propaganda, it would be safe to say "BIRTH Place" is Critically IMPORTANT to the GOP and  Ted NOT being BORN in the USA is an Immense Problem for the Republican Majority of Constituency & VOTERS ~

        * Ted Cruz recently shared the SAME Stage in Iowa with an idiot Preacher who is advocating the extermination of ALL Gay Individuals, he espoused that HATEFUL Rhetoric and then said "Here's Ted Cruz" ~

        * Ted Cruz is ADVOCATING the "Carpet Bombing" of a Foreign Country, an action that everyone understands is UNLAWFUL and one which would perhaps achieve his Father's Objective? The ALIENATION & Downfall of the United States? ~ Who knows what is lurking in an individuals mind when ADVOCATING "Blanket Bombing" innocent Human Beings from the AIR ~

        We could go on for ETERNITY, but just these three FACTS have already Disqualified Mr. Cruz even though he's STILL running ~

            You should VOTE Republican if you truly agree with the Following Conservative GOP Platform:

            * Huge Tax Cuts for Corporations & The Wealthiest Individuals
            * Terminating Social Security & Medicare
            * Terminating the Veteran's Administration
            * Abolishing a Woman's Right to Choose
            * Obstructing Minimum Wage  Increases
            * Abolishing Affordable Student Loans
            * Obstructing Labor Unions
            * Carpet Bombing Foreign Lands
            * Deporting 11 Million Un-Documented Immigrants ~ This would include Hispancs, Asians, Germans, Irish, African etc
            * Inserting Religion into the Federal Government
            * Terminating Employment for Millions of Federal Employees

            The preceding are CORNER-Stones of the Conservative Republican Agenda ~ The MAJORITY of Republicans and or Republican Presidential Candidates, regardless of skin color or ethnic origin, believe in executing this Agenda whenever possible ~

                  I hope you do realize that Ted Cruz is not the Republican Party. I do wish you wouldn't post in such an irritating manner. Picking and choosing words to put in all caps. It is unnecessary. We can all judge which words you put emphasis on. By pointing out the obvious it appears you are a little too emotionally attached to the argument. Which, is a bad thing. It reduces your credibility immensely.

                  I find right wing politics as offensive and anti American as left wing politics. They've all lost sight of what the average American expects and needs from those who represent them. Your arguments for the far left are as ineffectual in swaying my vote as are those from the far right.

                  At this point in the development of our country we are usually faced with choosing who will do the least damage, not the most good.

    It's true that his father was a refugee, and I believe that most of the public will not cue into that; especially with the rhetoric that's coming out of his son. However, I think a big issue is who Ted's father is and what he advocates.

    Ted Cruz's dad is an ultra-fundamentalist preacher with some real off-the-hook concepts. I know he was inducted in the "Encyclopedia of American Loon" (If I'm correct, some of beliefs reflects those of the end-timers). If anything, if he has profound influence on his son, there's no telling what Ted would do as a president.

    BTW, have you seen or heard the interviews with Ted's classmates? When Trump called him a maniac, he may have been right! Of course, Trump is a different issue.

      Hello Dean,
      Yes, Trump is in a category all his own.

      As for some of the R candidates, I have concerns that Cruz and Rubio are both one term senators. In the end I think that hurt Obama a lot. A President needs to have relationships with both sides of the aisle if anything can get done. Since Obama was also a one term senator, I don't think he knew everyone well enough to sit down and make deals with them. Or maybe he was too proud, after all the snide attitudes. I'm not really sure of his feelings. But experience matters, and if R's think it through, voting for Cruz or Rubio is almost the same as voting for Obama the first time. Rubio is definitely "not ready for Prime Time" and Cruz has some strange ideas.

      I think Obama did a good job considering what he inherited.

    Hi Dean ~ All I can do is agree ~ I've yet to see the interviews with Ted's friends, maybe you can elaborate, I'm sure election followers would be interested in the info ~

    I did however witness an astonishing event which took place a couple weeks ago in Iowa I believe, where Ted Cruz SHARED the SAME stage with an INSANE Preacher who was actually advocating the Extermination of Gay Individuals ~ I couldn't believe what I was watching ~ It reminded me of the Witch Hunts of Salem how many centuries ago? ~  Just Shocking, EERIE Bizarre and of course dangerous stuff ~

      That is so creepy! I think Cruz deserves a lot more scrutiny. The way I understand it, his Dad was Canadian, Mom was American, but they married and continued to live in Canada for several years. Both parents worked in Canada in the oil business. Cruz was born while has parents lived in Canada, and he says now he never knew that. Duh? The Mom got dual citizenship eventually, and Cruz says he denounces his Canadian citizenship. But does he have a U.S. citizenship? After all Obama went through, I think this should be investigated more thoroughly. Cruz has some scary ideas, and is too much of a conservative Christian for my taste. I'm a Pagan though.

        I Absolutely AGREE Jean, Ted is CREEPY indeed & He’ll get further scrutiny one way or another, either Voluntarily or Involuntarily via Law Suits ~

        The shady Ted Cruz “Back-Story” is indeed “Murky, Convoluted & STRANGE” which means it’s difficult to “Vet” an individual like this ~ I would add though, Rafael Bienvenido Cruz, Ted’s father was actually BORN in Cuba at the inception of the Communist Infiltration while Presidential Candidate Ted his son, was Foreign Born in Canada and we all know how “FOND” Republicans are of French People ~

        Then, in the late 50’s,  Ted’s father Rafael according to reports, washed ashore on U.S. Soil as a Refugee then apparently made his way across the border to Canada ~ One more reason WHY Ted’s Radically Inhumane “Un-Documented Immigration” stance here in the United States and his apparent disdain for foreigners is about as Hypocritical & Dangerous as it gets ~

        Sorry, I had to say something about that comment. I get tired of reading these rambling wrecks from people who expouse obvious talking points and then try to pretend they are unique thoughts. The problem is that I catch it all the time when I go through the discussion threads.

        Anyway, to answer the other question: The roommate for Ted Cruz made a statement that Teddy was a nightmare. He had bad hygenes harass the ladies, and tried to get into arguments for the sake of an arguments. The roommate stated that "99% of it was his personality; if he actually agreed with politics he would hate him only 1% less."

      Friend, I think your caps lock key is sticking.

      You seem to have missed my point in its entirety. What I was getting at is that the average voter is a brainless puppet of the media. Whether the candidate in question is Republican, Democrat, or Illuminati doesn't matter: people will vote for who the media convinces them to vote for--even if that person was an axe murderer who drowns puppies in his spare time.

      Therefore, it really doesn't matter what Cruz's history is. If people cared about a candidate's history enough for it to decide their vote, Obama wouldn't have been elected once, let alone twice. The fact that he's in office for a second term proves that people don't care (or a just too lazy to do a bit of research).

      As a side note, I'm not sure why you're so keen to defend Hillary. She flat out lied about the Benghazi incident being the fault of a YouTube video--right to the faces of the families of the four victims. How do we know? Because she herself admitted it when she later declared the attack to have been an act of terrorism. Interestingly enough, even after Hillary came clean, Obama kept on with the YouTube video lie for another couple weeks.

      But even if you were to justify her actions in Benghazi, that'd still leave you with the task of explaining her illegal actions in the Watergate (trying to deprive Nixon of his constitutional right to legal counsel), Travelgate (where her false accusations nearly ruined the life and reputation of the then-head of the travel office), the Rose Law Firm scandal, her bullying the victims of her philandering husband's sexual crimes into silence, her use of the IRS as a personal attack dog against her political and personal enemies during Bill's presidency, "Hillary Care" (which was such an abject failure that it made Obamacare look like a writ of divine providence), her habit of illegal campaign fundraising, her past illegal laundering of money from the Chinese government, her taking donations from countries that sponsor terrorism and atrocities against women and gays, her habit of stealing legal documents (and lying about doing so) only to have them appear on her coffee table one morning (oops!)...

      It's not worth wasting breath defending her. To call all of these "frivolous" and "fabricated" cases would require you to believe that not only Republicans are wrong, but that the entire Judicial branch, the FBI, and the historical record are also wrong. Fat chance.

      If you're going to back a Democrat, back Bernie. He'd make a terrible president, has terrible policy, and doesn't understand how an economy works, but at least he isn't a criminal and he honestly believes he could help the country. And if that's not enough, he's probably the only Democrat candidate who could avoid getting embarrassingly demolished in a debate about gun control.

      P.S.  The requirement for being president is to be "of at least 35 years of age and a 'natural born citizen'". Being a natural born citizen doesn't require one to be born in America as long as that person is born of an established American citizen. Cruz's mother was born in Delaware, thus Cruz carries his mother's American citizenship by default. His mother wasn't a Canadian citizen living in Canada, she was an American citizen living in Canada due to the location of her husband's job.

      P.P.S.  I also think Gowdy is a numbskull for wasting millions of taxpayer dollars trying to prove what can already plainly be seen. Hillary lied. Period. Why waste more money to prove what we already know? It would have been just as effective (and possibly even more so) to come out and call her a morally deficient scumbag (again, the historical record agrees) and save those millions of dollars. Ted Gowdy, though, is not "my guy". If you're going to go around pretending to know what I think and who I support, you're going to end up looking silly more often than not.

        Hey Twerk, either you need to check your sources or stop data mining to find unverified "facts" to affirm your ideology. There's a lot known about Obama's past and his family. Joe the Plumber (the one who made the comment that his parents are communist) is possibly the worst source for this. And, Politifacts.com agrees.
          Also, the accusations you state about Hillary has been debunked numerous times, including the Benghazi thing. I've even stumbled upon the Watergate accusation. Guess what? Snopes.com labeled it false.
        Also, Obama had more negative reports made by the media than other candidates in 2008  and 2012.
        People elected Obama because he offered something different and fresh in the wake of the ongoing effects of the Great Recession. Also, he actually did very well in debates and with the ongoing negative publicity he was receiving.
        Now let's take a look at Ted Cruz.Teddy boy may lose because of that history of his. For one thing, he lacks the charismatic flare a president need. Also, his negative action during budget debates are still fresh in a lot people's minds. It doesn't help that he  seemingly places his support in things that can hurt the general public rather than help them. In other word his history is a major concern; especially, his college days.

          You tried, I'll give you that. But when you go around citing Politifact.com, you throw all your credibility out the window. Politifact, despite their claims of being "impartial" is about as unbiased a source as the Huffington Post or Salon.com (i.e. they are all biased as hell in favor of liberals).

          Case-by-case studies into the methodology used by these "fact-checkers" to determine what constitutes "truth" have shown that sites like Politifact will use any and all available BS tactics they can to make it look like conservatives lie at every turn.

          Case in point:

          wcww.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/peter-roff/2013/05/28/study-finds-fact-checkers-biased-against-republicans

          http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/tim-gr … beral-bias

          As for your claim that Snopes disproves my claim about Hillary Clinton during the Watergate trials, you're so wrong it's not even funny. The only claim that Snopes looked (and debunked) is the myth that Hillary Clinton was *fired* by the Judiciary Chief of Staff, Jerry Zeifman. Technically, she *wasn't* fired. However, she did write a fraudulent legal brief (to deprive Nixon of legal counsel, despite Nixon having the constitutional right to legal counsel) and then confiscated relevant court documents which would have exposed her lie. Because of this, Zeifman recommended, on the basis of her moral depravity and habit of lying, that Hillary Clinton never be allowed to hold further public office. Snopes offers nothing but opinion about these other details.

          This isn't even the only time Hillary pulled stunts like this. She did the same darn thing during the Rose Law Firm scandal, and went on to become the first First Lady to be fingerprinted by the FBI for being so untrustworthy.

          Furthermore, Snopes seems to think that Hillary Clinton breaking the law at the behest of her supervisor somehow absolves her of any wrongdoing. If someone told you to kill someone, and you did, *you* would still be the one committing the crime.

          As for the rest of your lofty claims, I see not a single shred of evidence that suggests I believe even one of them. Hillary has been involved in more scandals than even most experts in politics could name off the tops of their heads, and she got out of almost all of them by low-order chicanery, convenient forgetfulness, and by destroying evidence. And Obama? The only reason he won the presidency (because according to polls, the majority of Americans actually favored Romney's policy), was the overwhelming media bias in his favor.

          Also, it's interesting you would fixate on Ted Cruz's college years, seeing as how we know absolutely nothing about Obama's college years (other than what colleges he went to). His transcripts are sealed up tighter than Fort Knox. For all we know, he spent his college days smoking reefer and sacrificing chickens to Karl Marx.

            As a former journalist i know which sites are good sources of well-researched material. News buster is not one of them.. that particular group was funded by conservative groups . The same with news max,brietbart, clear politics, and other countless blogs. 
            Most of the stuff you brought up has either been debunked or is just merely speculative at best.
            I don't expect you to believe me. I get the impression you're stuck in an ideological world that's black and white. Too bad because the real world has many shades of gray.
            For all I know you're a firm believer in conspiracy theories. Birther? 9/11 truther? End-timer? Well I'm just speculating and making things up right? Then again in one of your rambling comments you did mention illuminati.
            Anyway I guess the sky is really blue in that fantasy world. 

            By the way,  he went to occidental college, transferred to Columbia for his ba and then went to Harvard Law school where he became student president within that particular law school. Gee who could that be? Because there seems to be no information about his school years. Still, that sounds like a high achiever rather than somebody who  was deemed so arrogant that nobody wanted to be around him. And, oh yeah, that carried over to senate in his later years where he was despised  by both republicans and Democrats alike.

            Nice try twerk. But you whiffed on your claim.

              BTW: I just realized you used US News? That too is run by a conservative group. Also, upon further reading your response, I realized that you didn't read the Snopes article thoroughly. It cast doubt Zeifman. It appears he was the bad apple in the entire process. He hated everyone involved in the case. Thus, is validity is in question.
              Finally, most of the so-called accusations made against Hillary over the years have been coming from only a few sources. A lot of these claims appear to have come from conservative think-tanks. These groups have often been hired by opposing candidates to sling nifty-sounding BS to discredit an opponent. Even as a college journalist, they'd send PR flyers and letters trying to persuade us to believe this crap. And, I;ll have to say something that sound like I'm evoking the Godwin Rule, this is a tactic similarly used by Goebbels (you know, repeat a lie, and eventually the public will believe it). Obviously it didn't take much effort to convince you.

        You know, it's interesting because I've never even seen a single Duck Dynasty episode, nor do I care about the Robertson's. But I started reading a bit about him and it's quite interesting.

        Phil Robertson grew up poor, but was a highschool athlete. He earned a football scholarship and attended Louisiana Tech where he completed both a bachelor's and a master's degree. He was approached to play for the NFL but declined. He met his wife in high school, and married while still in college, long before he started the duck call business and became a millionaire. He worked as a teacher, fisherman, and bar owner before starting the Duck Commander company, in which his wife serves as VP. They've been married almost 50 years.

        Just remember, a REAL man dosen't Need a Gun, a REAL Man dosen't Hunt, and a REAL Man dosen't Look like he hasn't taken a bath in a few months, and a REAL man dosen't smell like a "Skunk Ape", and a REAL man Definately Does NOT Vote for Ted "Carpet BOMBER" Cruz ~

    Some facts...

    Rafael Bienvenido Cruz was born in 1939, and left Cuba in 1957.

    Castro became PM of Cuba in 1959 after the Cuban Revolution, and the Communist Party didn't take control until 1965.

    So the premise of the forum saying that Rafael Cruz grew up in a "Red country" or that he's a "refugee from Communist Cuba" is based on a false argument. I don't care about Ted Cruz. I think he's a joke. But I also don't care about those that try to spread false statements as facts.

      Thief12 ~ It’s quite CLEAR that we’ve arrived at “Diverging Conclusions” as it pertains to Cruz’s Father and that’s OKAY smile ~ By now, I’m used to it around here, some individuals STILL Actually believe President Obama was BORN in Kenya despite a Birth-Certificate which CLEARLY Proves otherwise in FACTUAL Fashion, and so be it ~ No Harm No Foul, we all can believe what we choose to believe ~

      But what I think everyone needs to understand is the FACT that even though Al-Assad is the Dictator of Syria, the country is essentially Communist as Directly & Indirectly Controlled by Russia, and the same was indeed true of Cuba, the Dictator in the 1950’s, Batista, did not take an Overt Communist Title however, he was indeed CONTROLLED by Communists and this Control was Established long before Castro Assumed Power, long before 1965 ~  So, your interpretation of history that ONLY "Castro EQUALS Communism in Cuba" is nothing less than Flawed ~

      Once again Thief12, Facts are Facts but everyone is entitled to believe what they will ~ smile

      Anyway, "Carpet BOMBER" Cruz has much BIGGER Issues than this, but it is part of his Record ~

      We can't stand him in NJ! He's made a mess of our state. He can turn on the charm, like most politicians, like he did during Hurricane Sandy. He seems sincere about the state, but is bad on economics, environment, and women's issues.

      He had his stomach tied or whatever that procedure is before he began campaigning.

        Corruption Charges OVER-Shadow him as well Jean and some good people in New Jersey are now saying the Flooding and Incidental Circumstances in the Aftermath of the recent "Quasi-Blizzard" was even WORSE than what occured as a result of Hurricane Sandy ~

          While NJ fared well in the snow storm, apparently Cape May and points South did have a lot of flooding after this last snow storm happened. Although a lot of money was raised by Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi in our state, FEMA tried to jip people out of money they needed to repair their homes or to start over again. The Weather Channel downgraded Sandy to a "superstorm" instead of whatever level hurricane it was, just to save money. We lived without power for about 10 days, it was awful and cold even in the summer, because all that cold air comes in with the storm. You have no lights or hot water, so it's hard to live. So many people still don't have repairs, and some are rebuilding homes on stilts, like in a bayou.

          Even though everyone loves beachfront property, it may no longer be safe now that the climate is changing so much, Miami is sinking each year.

          Christie's abrasive style is accepted in NJ, most people here want the truth and not a lot of BS. I doubt he will get too far in the midwest or even southern states, his brash personality will turn people off. And I'm sick of hearing about what all these politicians did for 9/11. It was 15 years ago, we all lost people we knew or knew someone who had a loss, and we are tired of reliving what was traumatic over and over again. I live 45 minutes from NY, and it was terrifying. But R's love to run on fear. Christie was a state attorney general for a long time, but has a ridiculous amount of people in jail on pot charges and petty stuff.

            Looks like your Prediction was indeed CORRECT Jean, Christie now OUT of Contention which is NO Big surprise with Bush, Rubio & Carson not far behind ~ Bush has been OUT from the begining but continues to "PRETEND" Voters support him which is nonsense ~ "Carpet BOMBER" Cruz will remain a little longer because believe it or not, we still have s few Dim-Witted Republicans who continue to Vote gainst their BEST Interests ~

            9/11 was a TRAGIC Attack on our nation, one which was executed on idiot George W Bush's watch which means he and his CONservative Cohorts must someday take FULL & Complete Resonsibility for which they REFUSE to accept ~ Republicans Strong & COMPETENT regarding National Security? A Monumental MYTH to say the Least  ~ sad

            I understand Florida is indeed "Sinking" ~ "Extreme Climate Alteration" is happening RIGHT Now, but CONservative Republicans are NOT allowed to admit to this FACT due to the severe Risk of "Campaign Contribution Cancellation"  which of course equates to JOB Loss ~

            Here's another little known FACT which is directly related ~ Oklahoma, Yup, Oklahoma is NOW the Undisputed "EARTHQUAKE" Champion as a DIRECT Result of "FRACKING" for natural gas ~ MORE Tremors are RECORDED in this Region than anywhere else on EARTH ~ -----> sad

              Wow, I didn't know that about Oklahoma.

              Jeb's presidential bid is getting downright embarrassing, he should just say he wants to spend more time with his family, the code politicians use when they need to step down and get out of something. He made a fool of himself talking about how his brother kept us safe, I guess forgetting  9/11 happened on his watch. Bill Clinton and the CIA warned him Bin Ladin was ready to attack the U.S. and he ignored it.

              I wonder if the R's will ever get out of their "bubble." I watch Fox news just to mock it once in a while, and all they do is sit there and tell outright lies about how Obama's Presidency was terrible. Is it prejudice? Or are we just that polarized? Obama plodded away, all the while they mocked and blocked him, and did a lot of good things.

              When you watch clips of the R debates, they don't have any solutions to any of the problems. If Hillary or Bernie wins, they will do the same thing and block all they want to do. We really need more parties. I'm supporting Hillary, but even though she has so much experience, she isn't really exciting. Maybe she's been around too long, but it's her last shot and I'd like to see her win. Bernie is good too, but they will be running negative ads with hammers and sickles if he continues to do well.

                Hi Jean ~ Yeah, the developments in Oklahoma are quite ALARMING where this once relatively STABLE swath of good earth has evolved from experiencing 0 to 2 small tremors annually, which is to be expected from NATURAL Forces, to HUNDREDS and even Thousands per year and the ONLY change which this seismic increase could possibly be attributed to is the INTRODUCTION of EARTH Shattering "Fracking for PROFIT" ~ Yup, "Capitalism at it's Absolute FINEST" sad ~

                I would urge everyone who reads this to investigate on his/her own, it's STARTLING to say the least and it's not Limited to Oklahoma ~

                I also agree with your assessment of FOX Loser Channel where every time I Check-Up on what these Republican HACKs are actually trying to Peddle, it's all about Benghazi and their partisan LIES about said tragic incident ~ Ridiculous & Shameful to say the least, they need to let the Victims of this  event Rest in PEACE and move on ~

                When Hillary or Bernie accepts the keys to our White House it will indeed be "OBSTRUCTION" by the CONservative Congress as usual, that's why a PUSH to "REPEAL & Replace" these Wall Street Republican Corporate Puppets should be a primary focus as well as the Presidency ~

              Baloney.  Yellowstone National Park (a small portion of Wyoming) has as many as 3,000 tremors every year (that's nearly 10 every day).  And has for a long time now.

              Don't believe everything you read and even less with it comes from someone with an ax to grind.

                Let's not be deceptive with our CLAIMS ~ Yellowstone experiences "AS MANY AS" 3,000 per year NOT 3,000 ~ ESTIMATES are between 1,000 - 3,000 annually which definately signifies a "Seismic HOT Spot" however, it also indicates a HUGE Discrepancy in STATS ~

                My Info stems directly from SEVERAL Reliable Sources including the "Oklahoma Corporation Commission" which has been studying this eerie phenomena since inception ~ They should have a GOOD Feel for the "SHAKING" considering they are right in the midst of this Critical Situation  ~

                Keep "Digging" for the TRUTH about the utterly ABSURD & Destructive activity of "Fracking" in Oklahoma and the LONG Term EARTH Destabilizing & Detrimental EFFECTS of said Negligent Practices which is supported primarily by your Greed Driven Capitalist Republicans ~

    Just in case you are STILL actually contemplating a vote for CREEPY Anarchist Ted "Carpet BOMBER" Cruz, according to a PLEDGE he made at the "GOP CONservative Circus Debate" last night, if his " Eligibility Issue" pans out in his favor, he would actually begin his tenure as President by INCREASING National Unemployment by roughly 80,000 after he Abolishes the I.R.S. ~

    Ted Cruz's people reached out to Donald Trump to ask if he would commit to a seat on the Supreme Court for Ted if he dropped out before Super Tuesday.  Trump said, "No Dice!"

    Now, sources say Cruz is trying to make the same deal with Rubio.

    Rubo's wife called Ted's wife to plead and beg her to get Ted to drop out so Rubio can win the Florida primary.   If Rubio doesn't win in FL, the Koch brothers are going to have Rubio drop out and they are going to put Mutt in, in an all out ditch effort to stop Trump.

    I have no doubt that Trump could beat Mutt, too.
    You heard it here first.
