Pointing people to a page with his issues outlined would have been better FR manners... but I don’t think it was even a manners issue. I think he was here to try to sap Cruz momentum.

I know other axe grinders like this. When it’s cockamamie theology I have to watch myself not to jump over them 8 ways from Sunday. (Though sometimes they earn it. Folks who preach in whatever way that the gospel is weak particularly get my goat!)

Remember all voices here ain’t equal. Treating them as they are can really pull you into a pit.

That can definitely be the case sometimes, but I also think that we Freepers raise our collective level of education and thinking prowess with our discussions. It's why I don't immediately give up on someone who doesn't seem to be 'getting it'.

Patience does have its limits, though.

Well ultimately we have to be looking for what’s true, rather than just what’s clever.

I found my backing in what’s true. It’s the Lord. And it ain’t an academic exercise to me. I am a spiritual optimist and it’s strange and yet gratifying to tell all those gloom mongers that I have better news for them than they ever hoped to believe. A non wimpy gospel with power in it for now, not just for after pushing up daisies.

I’m not either, given a few posts here and there.

I had at first thought he was a retread of someone else.

That’s the one I was thinking of.....

Will FR embrace socialism to make way for Rudy Giuliani as a Republican presidential candidate?

Yeah, it can sometimes be easy to overlook the deeper, bigger picture of life while we're struggling with all the rot in our socio-political situation.

So, "JC" - I know you can't answer me now, what with your fingers being electropotentially glued to your keyboard and all, but there was something I meant to ask you and never got around to:

You remember Myra?



(She says she had you "pegged" as a troll all along.)

Yes...there is a God

This was just one of his infractions

He had plenty others.

He’s a blogger....and Canadian born if I recall

Maybe a grad student at San Marcos..... and I think teaches too

Hated anyone over 35.....and I mean like obsessed

Posted with that obscure southern nick that only someone like me or pelham would know right off to endear himself as like a paleo ...a ruse....when in fact he was wobbly on hot issues

But he was staunch RC...I’ll give him that

Anyhow....He sure brought this on himself

Pretty much any Cruz thread devolves into birther nonsense.

I would like to suggest to JimRob that he announces that the simple act of going birther on a Cruz thread (that is not specifically about that topic) is a suspendable offense, and that a repetition of the offense is zottable.

Do not forget that there are teams of paid Soros trolls, literally, who are here to bleed momentum and distract us on a Cruz nomination.

Kill them.

You accused me of doing drugs. Prove that I’m on any drug of any sort.

You are on ZOTcaine.

Yes, I remember that song. I added the keyword 'bugzapper' and 'troll magnet' to several threads over the years.

He was obviously employing Alinsky tactics, repeating a lie over and over until people believe it.

These trolls are too stupid to see that FReepers are actually quite intelligent and very well informed because of Free Republic.

We see through that sort of tactic as soon as the troll ignores all comments, and he “answers” with the same, tired argument, over and over, to every rebuttal.

And why, pray tell, are you giving advice to paid Soros trolls? Ya got a big heart there, Laz.

That’s why I love you.

Yes, I believe that was his motive. I seem to remember that he was highly agitated at FR when everyone didn't support his 2012 candidate, Rick Santorum back during the primaries.

When I read his post #40 (below), even though he doesn't mention Santorum (on purpose I suspect), I thought I remembered his ummmm .... excitability about the Senator not getting much FR support.

```````````````````````````````````````````````````````

“I hope Ted runs, and I hope he makes the decision early and that other conservatives get behind him and we stop the tearing down and splitting up.”

I hope a candidate who is eligible runs and we can all get behind him. Last time, IIRC - everyone was upset that Palin didn’t run and then rather than voting for the most conservative candidate on the ballot decided to hold out. It was a disappointment.

We needed unity and we had a candidate who proved he could beat Romney. Too little too late. Now we’re supposed to get behind a fantastic conservative senator who happens to be ineligible. We lose on that issue and lose the presidency and then what do we get for it?

```````````````````````````````````````````````````````

I believe that the early part of the thread also contained some equally intended posters. It will be interesting to see what their future is on FR, depending upon how coy they play their hand.

Amen and thanks, he had many other infractions.

This is the first thread I posted to him and only did it because he was so obviously evading but he’d already been Zotted. *shaking head* :-)

I remember calling him a troll (pretty sure I did), just not how long ago. He was on my sh*t list from awhile back. I ended up just ignoring his rants.. very annoying (and won’t be missed by me at all)..

He also gave us Texans a bad name :/

Good zottin’ there Jim Rob.

Question: That Mark Levin thread from last week.... The article where Levin thought Cruz was ineligible? Turns out the headline was a lie and Levin really does believe Cruz is qualified.

Anyhooo... That thread was eventually pulled. (I hate when that happens). But didn’t JC post that thread in the first place? I do know he was agitating heavily on that thread and I - and many other FReepers - spent a lot of time and energy into trying to show hiim the truth.

Finally I gave up and concluded he was utterly opposed to Cruz on the basis that RINO’s like Christie or Jeb could move up the ladder.

There was really no other explanation to his rabid opposition to the idea that Cruz could run.
