I used to like Ben a lot, but now I don't. At first I thought his Anti-Trump stance has slipped form principled opposition to outright obsession. I remember reading his articles during the 2008 and the 2012 Primaries where he pretty much landed in the NONE OF THE ABOVE Camp. Which I thought of at the time as a bit odd, but some people have really picky tastes. I've always been more of a 7/10 IS GOOD ENOUGH Man.
Now things are different.
Now Mr. Shapiro has a horse by the name of Ted Cruz that he is going to back 1000%.
Now Conservatives are going to win the White House.
Now Conservatives will restore the Constitution and right the Great Ship of State.
Now this time we are going to do it!
Now I have learned that there maybe more of a financial motive to all of this.

Why the heck is a guy who lives in Los Angeles working for a company based out of a Dallas Suburb? So I decided to do quick search for Forward Publishing LLC and see what comes up.
Further research had shown that the owners of this company is none other then the Wilks Brothers. Levi Wilks is listed as the Manager of Forward Publishing and has ties to 7 Pillar Records LLC. In turn 7 Pillar is run by a fellow named Farris Wilks. Farris is famous for being a real Texas Success Story, going from Brick Layer to Oil and Gas Tycoon to Church Preacher.
These are the very same Texas Billionaires who gave an impressive $15 million to a Ted Cruz Super PAC. Why haven't we been told about this? This looks like if The Times invested a lot of money into GM and then ran articles about how the only car that doesn't suck is a Chevy.
Ben is a really smart man and I do not want to accuse him of fraud. All I would like to know is whether or not Ben knew about this and how much did this influence his commentary. A Cynic that lives deep inside me (right next to the gall bladder) tells me that this does explain why he has been so hyper critical of Trump or anyone else for that matter and has repeatedly glossed over the mistakes of Ted Cruz. I really don't want to believe him but I don't want to be a sucker either.
