Ted Cruz organized an anti-Iran nuke deal rally in Washington. But then a funny thing happened. No one wanted to attend. The media gave the event no coverage, and the idea was on the fizzle.
So, being the brilliant strategist he is, Cruz calculated the best way to gain support and publicity. He invited Donald Trump. Suddenly the media was all over the event, and other featured speakers have agreed to participate, including Sarah Palin, Mark Levin, and Glenn Beck.
Now expected to be a huge rally of red-blooded, American patriots, the event is scheduled for tomorrow, at the Capitol.
Following is an excerpt from a Powdered Wig article I wrote last month on the promising possibilities of a Trump presidency, specifically, in this case, how he will deal with Iran and any potential nuclear development deal:
Trump on Iran:
Trump will be forced to deal with this issue quickly, as every day is another day closer the nutjobs in Iran are to building nukes, annihilating Israel, and pointing their ICBMs toward Europe and the US.
President Trump will meet with the Iranians. You may call it a negotiation if you like, if that makes you feel better. It will be a very short meeting, probably less than ten minutes, consisting of a Donald Trump monologue, which will go something like this:
“Good morning, your Ayatollahness. Any deal you had with Barack Hussein is dead! You will receive no money from us. NONE! All sanctions are back in place, plus some new and creative ones my team of certified geniuses has come up with. I’m sure you will enjoy them.
As of right now (The Donald checks his watch) you have 24 hours to dismantle your nuclear program. Our inspectors will arrive tomorrow morning to inspect every square inch of your facilities to insure compliance.
‘Oh, yeah?’ you ask. ‘And what will you big, bad Americans do if we ignore your arrogance?’
Nothing! We will just get out of Israel’s way. They can handle this. They are fueling their jets right now. Of course, we will be backing them with air refueling, satellite and air reconnaissance, etc, as any good ally would do. Our armed forces is also on alert in the event the Israelis need help, which is very unlikely, but who knows, they may get tired of bombing you into next week and ask us to give them a break.
You now have 23 hours and 59 minutes. Have a nice day.”

WASHINGTON – Donald Trump is coming to Washington with a message for Congress and the American people: Stop the nuclear deal with Iran.
And he will be joined by a star-studded galaxy of conservative leaders.
Appearing with the leading Republican presidential contender will be fellow candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, former Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, political commentator Glenn Beck, radio talk-show host Mark Levin and many others in what promises to be a huge rally to try stop the Iran deal at the Capitol on Wednesday.
Trump, the author of the best-selling “The Art of the Deal,” has called Obama’s agreement “very dangerous” and “horrible” for America, while “perhaps catastrophic” for Israel.
“This deal makes war a certainty,” Cruz has charged.
And, as he told WND, “If this deal is consummated, it will make the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism.”
“Billions of dollars under control of this administration will flow into the hands of jihadists who will use that money to murder Americans, to murder Israelis, to murder Europeans,” Cruz warned.
Announcing on Sunday that she would join the rally, Palin wrote on Facebook, “Think about it – what the heck are we even doing ‘negotiating’ with an evil regime hellbent on destruction?
“The whole premise of this thing is wrong,” she added. “It’s a long haul to D.C. for the rally but well worth it to take a stand against this asinine deal the president caved on.”
Beck has called the Iranians “psychotic Islamists” and predicted the deal will lead to “a Holocaust, perhaps bigger than the last, where millions of Christians and even Muslims who are not Muslim enough will die at the hands of the Islamic State.”
As for Obama, Beck said, “What this president has done will be remembered as something far worse than Neville Chamberlain,” referring to the former British prime minister who tried to appease Hitler.
Levin has charged, “Barack Obama has planted the seeds, in my view, for World War III. They were already there, but he’s moved it along. I honestly believe that the next, massive, conflagration, war will now be in the Middle East.”
The rally has been organized by Cruz, the Tea Party Patriots, The Center for Security Policy and the Zionist Organization of America.
Once Cruz convinced Trump to join the rally, the floodgates opened: Huge media coverage was assured, and more big-name conservatives joined the speaker roster.
How Cruz wooed Trump, an opponent in the presidential race, to join him was chronicled by the Washington Post, which portrayed it as part of larger effort to ally the two campaigns and the start of a budding “bromance.”
While other Republican presidential candidates were taking ineffective swipes at the front-runner, Cruz went the other direction, calling it “foolish” to “slap Donald Trump with a stick.”
The two agree on such major issues as the need to stop illegal immigration and the corruption of Washington politics by big money, and Cruz said Trump’s emphasis on those issues had helped boost his own campaign.
“I like Donald Trump. He’s a friend of mine. I’m grateful that he’s in the race,” said Cruz.
The Texan issued a personal invitation to Trump, who accepted the offer from his campaign rival.
Opposition to the Iran deal is something all the GOP presidential candidates can strongly agree upon.
Despite overwhelming opposition in Congress and among the public, the nuclear deal is likely to attain approval this week because of a Senate ploy which many critics consider a colossal tactical blunder.
The “Corker bill” allows the nuclear deal, effectively, to be approved by a minority of lawmakers.
That’s because Congress did not insist upon pursuing the normal treaty process that requires such an important international agreement to be approved by two-thirds of the Senate. Instead, a bill from Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., requires Congress to submit a billdisapproving the deal, if lawmakers want to block it.
That means a bill blocking the deal would need two-thirds of both the Senate and the House to override a presidential veto. And, opponents of the deal, although in the clear majority, do not have that many votes.
Republicans are expected to introduce bills in the House and the Senate this week to stop the deal.
But 34 senators have now committed to support it, ensuring Obama could veto a bill blocking the deal without the Senate overriding that veto.
