Since the New Hampshire presidential primary last Tuesday, there has been much punditry and prognostication about the chances of Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio – who were among the top tier of candidates – to now win their respective parties' presidential nominations. Allow me to use this column to give you my "two cents."
As I wrote in part last week, after years of evading the law and being held accountable by law enforcement authorities, my former and current public interest groups, Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, and compromised Clinton- and Obama-appointed federal judges, Hillary Clinton is now on a collision course with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, headed by its ethical director, James Comey. Contrary to most of the commentary on cable news and the print media, the serious legal issues confronting Hillary do not just concern her mishandling and likely disclosure of highly classified national security information on her so-called private server, but also what she was precisely doing with donors and other special interests, including hostile foreign nations and their agents in these "private communications." As set forth with some particularity in a racketeering lawsuit I filed as a plaintiff against the Wicked Witch of the Left (see freedomwatchusa.org), there is considerable evidence that Hillary was secretly communicating with these persons, foreign nations and other nefarious interests to cut deals to line her and husband Bill's pockets, by selling influence and decision-making during her tenure as secretary of state.
Chief among her responsibilities as secretary of state was her principal role in deciding who and which interest could do business with the terrorist state the Islamic Republic of Iran during the several-year time period when sanctions were in effect. While these sanctions have now been largely lifted, the issue remains: Did Hillary sell waivers to do business with this terrorist state in exchange for hard cold cash, and is this why she had used a secret, private, non-governmental server to do business with the mullahs in Tehran and others from whom she could, with her power as the secretary of state, extort large financial gain for herself, her family and the Clinton Foundation?

The FBI is reportedly using over 100 of its fine agents to recreate Hillary's deleted emails and do follow-up investigation into this apparent bribery scheme, a caper similar to the one I wrote about last week concerning her role as first lady during the days of her husband's presidency in taking bribes from the communist Chinese.
While no Justice Department will, if the past is a prologue, ever indict her – Democrats and Republicans have an unwritten agreement not to gore the oxes of the high priests and priestesses of their respective parties – the FBI will undoubtedly leak many of the details of their eventual but doomed criminal referral to Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch. As a result, expect either Bernie Sanders to win the Democratic presidential nomination, or to have Hillary shown the door in the next two months, with someone like Vice President Joe Biden entering the race. The stench if not rank lawlessness of the Wicked Witch of the Left will have reached critical mass by that time, and she will melt as did the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz."
Then there are the two Cuban-American Republican candidates – Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz – both ineligible to run for the presidency as they are not natural born citizens. It is no secret that I admire and deeply respect the Cuban people, my having fought many legal battles on their behalf, and won nearly a $2 million judgment against the Castro brothers for their air force's murderous shootdown of Brothers to the Rescue planes over the Florida straits – among many other causes to further Cubans' freedom from Communist rule.
But in the case of Rubio, notwithstanding that he has never done anything to further freedom for his own people in Cuba or elsewhere, his fatal wounding by Gov. Chris Christie in the New Hampshire debate unmasked exactly who he is: a glib but shallow robot who sounds good thanks to his obviously rehearsed sound bites and lines, but who in the end is not ready for prime time. Nor will he ever be, having been caught lying about his father fleeing Fidel Castro, when in fact his dad left Cuba during the regime of a prior non-communist dictator, his going "AWOL" and routinely not showing up in Congress to vote as my senator from Florida, and his duplicity over pushing amnesty and now conveniently claiming, falsely, that he did not. In short, Marco Rubio has seen his better days. His prospects are not good, especially in the myriad upcoming Southern primaries.

As for Ted Cruz, to me his obvious involvement in doing a number on "lovable" Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson by his staff falsely publicly disseminating during the crucial voting hours of the Iowa caucuses that the neurosurgeon was quitting the race, his weak, halfhearted and insincere apology and failure to fire his campaign manager for this unethical conduct, have cast a dark cloud over his ethics and legitimacy to be president. Of equal importance to Cruz's chances to win the Republican presidential nomination is his impersonal, appellate-lawyer, wooden, heavy-handed and pedantic speaking style. Even worse than former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, whose integrity was never in question, Cruz's distant demeanor, at least for me, is grating and annoying. I simply cannot stand to listen to him speak and watch him point his finger at us, even if I agree with almost all that he says. Much like Obama, it would be painful to listen to and see this puppet for four and perhaps eight years. In short, Cruz, unlike Trump and even communist-loving grandpa Bernie Sanders, cannot connect on a human level with ordinary Americans, whatever their political persuasion. His candidacy is doomed, as he has the "fine endearing touch" of failed Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton who recently hid the skids in the Super Bowl.
So this is my analysis of the rise and likely fall of Hillary, Marco, Ted and Cam. Only time will tell if I am right. "At the end of the day," in the words of an inarticulate and unsportsmanlike Cam Newton after his Super Bowl meltdown, they will have to wait for another political Super Bowl, as all of them have fumbled the ball.
