-- Rafael "Ted" Cruz has been waging a secret war against the Carson campaign through backroom deals made with leaders of the religious right in Iowa and South Carolina. Bob Vander Plaats a controversial religious figure who has sway with several pastors through his network of charitable donations and gifts has decided to back the once thought fringe candidate Cruz. Plaats is known to be anti gay and has even publicly made fun of homosexuals. In 2011 it was reported by Politico he publicly put down homosexuals in a joke his friend shared, “You know what my wife says? She says: Iowa, the state where you can’t smoke a fag, but you can marry one.” Vander Plaats responded with, “Oh shoot, that’s pretty good, that’s pretty good. Oh shoot.” Watch it. Cruz has had his contacts in the media wage a daily war against Carson using a barrage of disinformation and false narratives, from the attack that Carson's foreign policy is a trainwreck ,when in fact it is almost a mirror image of his own, to a story which was planted with CNN about "chaos" in his campaign that does not exist. Public enemy number one to the Carson campaign is Ted Cruz. The narrative that the party and media have put forth would have you think that Ted Cruz was surging into an authoritative lead against Carson and even Trump but the new poll numbers conflict with their reporting. In a Fox News poll out just today Carson has fought off a months worth of an assault on his character to retain second place in South Carolina and Ted Cruz is actually behind him in third. Carson shows no signs of throwing in the towel and he continues to draw thousands of supporters to his rallies nationwide. Polls have shown this week that Carson's numbers have stabilized. You can catch all the candidates December 15th debating in the second televised CNN debate.
