    Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) unveiled his campaign’s national security coalition Thursday, a group of men and women who will advise him on foreign policy issues.

    The coalition includes former Missouri Republican Sen. Jim Talent, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, former Assistant Secretary of State Elliott Abrams, retired Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin and Frank Gaffney Jr., president and CEO of the Center for Security Policy.


    “I am honored and humbled to have a range of respected voices willing to offer their best advice,” Cruz said in a statement. “These are trusted friends who will form a core of our broader national security team. After two terms of a failed Obama-Clinton foreign policy, our allies are confused and frightened, and our enemies are looking for opportunities. This is the moment for all those who believe in a strong America that is secure at home and respected abroad to come together and craft a new path forward.”

    Some of the above might be of service for President Trump.

    I do not think Trump will ever be president..he can't defeat Hillary and I don't believe the GOP will ever allow him to be the nominee!

    You are entitled to think that.
    Despite a multitude of polls suggesting she would beat him one-to-one --I find that absurd.
    So do you endorse backroom politics? Do you support a lack of fair-play? Do you advocate that if the majority of voters selected Trump that should be overturned? Your contention goes against American values and our historic system.

    I hear that a lot. Tell me why you think that. For my part, Trump is fighting the way I wished McCain and Romney would fight. Cruz is McCain-ish and Romney-ish in his fighting. I see Cruz getting taken to the cleaners unless he takes the gloves off. And he hasn't so far.

    So tell me why you think tha Trump can't defeat Hillary. Hillary is scared to death of Trump.

    He's too soft. Granted, he's more conservative than McCain. I would be very happy with him as a President, but he doesn't fight, and when he does, he loses.

    He doesn't fight? His "fighitng" is why so many in the Senate do not like him. Soft? Not hardly.

    Cruz fights with God on his side, Trump fights with satan on his side! Trump worships the god of this world! Cruz is the one I want!

    God doesn't lose, He allows those who go against Him to do just as they please! They're sealing their fate! God is simply removing His hand from this nation!

    2 Chronicles 7:14King James Version (KJV)
    14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.


    Romans 1:27-29King James Version (KJV)
    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    Probably a good group for Cruz, but he'll never need them.

    Politicians are politicians. The breed is not known for honesty. I would be very careful about believing religious claims made by any one running for public office.

    You must not be prayin' hard enough.

    Here's what I know, God's choice for this nation for good or for evil will be the next President.

    I see Cruz has brought on noted conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney to the team. I feel sooooo much better now about our future.

    Not true at all. He's a liberal masquerading as a conservative.

    You don't think it's known he's liberal? Everyone knows he's liberal.

    Not everyone. Take a look at other forum sites made up of people who call themselves conservative.
