Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton win Iowa caucuses

February 2, 2016

 After months of speculation the Iowa caucuses were held last night so I thought I would put up a quick post about it before I head out to work this morning.

  It looks like Hillary Clinton technically defeated  Bernie Sanders last night because she is walking away with a few more delegates but it appears as if this was as tight a decision as you can have with six precincts being decided with coin tosses. When you think about it this is how it should have ended; after all it would not be fair if one candidate got more votes than the other so it is good to see the Democrats spreading the wealth of votes around. In typical Democratic fashion it is being reported that the votes from 90 precincts are missing. (But don’t worry, there is no such thing as voter fraud.)

  As for the Republican side: Ted Cruz defeated Donald Trump by 4% while Marco Rubio came in third place with 23% of the vote. I did not watch any of the live debate coverage on the television but I watched the results stream in on the internet and it looked as if Ted Cruz had a steady lead all night long.

  I have to admit I was surprised at Marco Rubio’s showing despite the mainstream media’s claim in the last week or so that he was surging. This could be another example of the media creating a situation it wanted to see…

  I do think it is very interesting that Marco Rubio finished closer to Donald Trump than Donald Trump finished to Ted Cruz so it will be interesting to see what happens next. 

  Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have firewalls built in New Hampshire and I believe they will win their respective primaries next week but I think we need to watch how Marco Rubio finishes in the Granite State, if he can get some momentum going the money will really start flowing in from the establishment.

  By the way, as if anyone cares, Mike Huckabee is dropping out of the race…

    It looks like Cruz got 8 delegates while Trump and Rubio each got 7. Somehow Jeb managed to get one delegate.

    It appears that Iowa was a successful dry run for the media as it propped up Rubio, the hand puppet for the establishment RINO pro-immigration elite. With Clinton most assuredly and eventually relegating her fellow commie Sanders to the garbage heap of history a Rubio-Clinton matchup would be a wet dream come true for the democrats. While this may prove to be nothing more than a bump in the road for Trump’s campaign it still proves that the media has a very strong chance to manipulate public opinion in favor of their horse in this race whomever it eventually bets on. As for Cruz, Rubio’s pretty face should push him past Cruz’s semi-sneer in both NH and SC. One man’s uneducated anecdotal opinion based on the lemming like self destruct tendencies of both the republican party and its voters. I feel that a country able to elect an in your face anti-american pro-muslim candidate a scant seven years after 9/11 and repeat the abomination four years later will have no problem electing this criminal, this phony shameless hag who can’t wait to finish what Chaka started.

      I agree. The media in the last week started to pump up Rubio (and certainly the establishment was behind it) and it paid off as he went from polling very low to almost finishing ahead of Trump. This will give him a spark and with Trump and Cruz battling each other and taking votes away from each other it might give Rubio a chance. And this is what the establishment is hoping for…

    Something off Stone’s site: “I received an “anonymous” message from people in Iowa who said Trump took 41 percent of the total vote, and I am not talking total Republican vote, I mean THE ENTIRE VOTE. It is therefore impossible for Trump to have come in second behind ANYONE. I received this notification yesterday (which was sent before the final tally was in,) and it is inconceivable that the vote could have shifted so much. Why would I care if Trump gets the election stolen, which is precisely what happened in Iowa? The answer is simple: TRUMP KNOWS THE VACCINES CAUSE BRAIN DAMAGE AND INTENDS TO STOP IT FROM HAPPENING. He has publicly stated in no uncertain terms that the vaccines in America are causing autism, and that alone is a good enough reason for the shadow government to steal the election away from him…. Trump has said a lot I do not like him for, but he at least will do what he can to stop this from being a picture of our future. This is the future with Hillary, Cruz, or anyone else who gets scammed in against the will of the people.”

      I can believe that, Zip! I am totally against all this forced issuing of vaccines for kids. There are plenty of kids/infants that were perfectly normal until they started shots….that is very telling, to me! Now they are “developing” a vaccine for this Zika virus??? Like I am going to take that one! Add to that them now saying that fogging outside will not be enough…they will need to come inside and spray pesticides in closets, under beds, etc….not in MY house they will not. I try to use natural cleaning stuff, why would I allow them to bring toxic crap inside my house??It is anyones guess what will be put in the vaccine and people will walk up and take the shot with no questions! On top of all that, SEX will spread it? Do they actually know what they are talking about OR are they playing the games again with us? All they need to do is start putting a scare into a few people and it will intensify dramatically. Will this be another Ebola? Once they put the scare into the American people, MOST will do whatever they are told…sounds suspicious to ME.

        Yep Lou, we don’t want to know ‘what’ those in control think of us – too ugly. The very words to describe them – or use to – are the ones they made fashionable: wicked, evil, ugly, burning, etc. Connect the dots and you’ll find your suspicion – those ruling this playing field aren’t for us.
