Something interested happened at Republican caucuses around Iowa Monday night. CNN reported around 6:45 Central time that Ben Carson was going to stop campaigning after that night’s Iowa caucus.
Right around the start time (7 PM), the Cruz campaign official Twitter account tweeted out the CNN story and added this (as reported by Bill Still of The Still Report):
“… Make sure to tell all of your peers supporting Carson that they should coalesce around the true conservative who will be in the race for the long haul: TED CRUZ!”
And sure enough, supporters of Ted Cruz did as they were told and repeated this “news” to other caucus-goers in attendance. They added that Carson supporters would be “wasting their vote” if they supported the former neurologist – and urged them to switch their votes to Senator Cruz.
If that wasn’t enough, the Cruz campaign issued an official press release – on campaign stationary:
“Breaking News: The press is reporting that Dr. Ben Carson is taking time off from the campaign trail after Iowa and making a big announcement next week.
“Please inform any Carson caucus goers of this news and urge them to caucus for Ted Cruz.”
It seems to us that these events didn’t just happen on their own, and they were a well-coordinated surprise attack on the Carson campaign. And here’s another interesting twist on this story:
“Source inside Ben Carson’s campaign just confirmed to me: @RealBenCarson is OUT >>> #ChooseCruz”
Gabriel’s Twitter account boasts that he’s ex-CIA and specializes in insurgencies, foreign and domestic. According to a Reddit user, Gabriel is a counter-terrorism operative and the founder of Applied Memetics, LLC. On top of this, Gabriel has ties to liberal billionaire George Soros.
Bill Still had some damning criticism for the Cruz campaign:
“… it looks like Ted Cruz is employing top social media agent provocateurs to run a Nixonesque dirty tricks campaign.”
Why would Cruz target Carson’s campaign? Because he was a bigger threat than the pre-caucus polls and mainstream media had let on. Here’s what Carson had to say after the Iowa caucus:
“I got calls from several people who told me their internal intelligence told me I was going to do extraordinarily well.”
Like the old saying goes: If it walks, looks and quacks like a duck… it’s probably a duck. And if it looks, sounds and feels like a political dirty tricks campaign, it probably is. This should be disturbing to conservatives and Republicans everywhere who believe in the Constitution, the rule of law and the spirit of fair elections.
We’re used to seeing liberal Democrats such as Lyndon Johnson, Richard Daly and Bill and Hillary Clinton resort to dirty tricks to win elections and retain power. But if even part of this story is true, this level of corruption should be disturbing to all conservative Republican voters – and definitely not tolerated or called “business as usual.”
Given this recent revelation, do you still believe that Ted Cruz is a Constitutional conservative and worthy of your trust and vote?
