I've consulted Google on the matter and Google has informed me Teddy is actually: Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz. Zodiac's Name is Raffa! Amazing! However, Raffa the Zodiac Killer appears to have waited until December of None-teen Seventy to be born. Doesn't fool me, clearly He did that deliberately in order to establish an Alibi!
Candidate Killers ? They certainly blow you away with their sincerity.
Super Tuesday is been and gone - and the 2016 Presidential race is already looking like a straight fight between the ''fragrant'' Mrs.Clinton and the ''earnest'' Mr.Trump.Unless of course,''Zodiac Killer'' Senator Cruz can galvanize unified Republican support from already vanquished rivals.
A winning ''trump card'' from ''The Donald'' ? He could offer to pay for 2,000 mile Texas border wall,himself.
Surely a ''slam dunk'',for the man with ''zero sense of humor'',but plenty of bucks [?].

''The Donald'',property tycoon Donald Trump,continues to sweep aside Republican candidates,in his quest to stand ''toe to toe''with Hilary Clinton,for the ultimate prize of US President.Only Ted ''The Zodiac Killer'' Cruz,remains the only candidate remaining to scupper his ambitions.
Mr.Trump,is only too well known to residents of Aberdeen,Scotland - having made regular visits to his proudly acquired Mennie Estate,a coastal spot north of the city.Purchased in memory of his late mother - a ''local'' woman from Lewis [...which is actually 350 miles away...],Mr.Trump has invested a [claimed] one billion dollars,developing two world class golf courses,holiday homes and an ''unrivaled'' hotel.
It is true that a splendid golf course has been established,charging golfers $300 for a single round.But there,the development has largely stood still.A number of factors have contributed to this turn of events - not least a legal dispute with the Scottish Government over prospective Wind Turbines to be sited close by - effectively spoiling the sea view for his exclusive guests and visitors,including actor Sean Connery,whose membership number is 007.
Promises made by Mr.Trump,to inject finance into the local economy have not materialized.It has emerged that any jobs have been given to Irish and Polish transient workers,who are seen as cheaper,and less likely to be subject to legitimate terms,such as a minimum wage.In addition,individual disputes with neighboring farmers,who refuse to sell their land to Mr.Trump,have materialized.One farmer in particular,has been labelled as ''disgusting'' by Mr.Trump - presumably for not being smartly dressed,and remaining unimpressed by the tycoon.
In the political arena,readers will now be aware of fighting and violence at the Trump ''Rallies''.Mr.Trump's verbal rhetoric of ''pro-active saber rattling ''has even prompted President Obama to speak of ''concerns''regarding ''conduct'' of ''candidates''.The Press have even noted that Secret Service personnel,employed to protect Mr.Trump,are in constant dispute with Trump's personal bodyguards.Perhaps not helpful,in the knowledge that Trump's men are on three times their wages,for the same responsibility [?].
Is ''The Donald'' an unstoppable force ? Can he sweep ''The Zodiac Killer'' aside,for a final ''play-off'' with Mrs.Clinton ?

In considering Mr.Trump's ''problems'' with the Scottish Government over proposed Wind Turbines to be sited in close proximity to Trump's Mennie Estate,one must wonder if this represents a covert attempt,by the Scottish Government,to encourage him to take his business elsewhere.
It all started so ''joyously'',with Trump's ''fanfare'' arrival - a bit of glamour,plus promised injection of funds to the local economy.An Aberdeen university even bestowed an honorary degree on the distinguished property magnate.
Perhaps the writing was on the wall,when an independent film company documented the ''trials'' of local farmers,who refused to sell their land to Trump.Disputes between Trump and the farmers,would often end in ''tears''.They might,for instance,and caught on camera,wake up to find that,overnight,bulldozers had piled mounds of earth around their land,blocking views in all directions.Or,that something more mysterious would happen,such as finding that their water supply had been cut off.Or even,a visit from the police,with regard to complaints from Trump that ''they'',the farmers,had been intimidating the famous Estate owner [!].
Not a happy state of affairs,therefore,with Trump now taking the Scottish Government to court,and extending the issue of Wind Turbines,to European Union judicial proceedings.
In addition,Mr.Trump's perceived inflammatory anti-Islamic rhetoric,in his ''crusade'' to attain the position of US President,causing much discontent.One might note that the first institution to actually react,was Robert Gordon's University in Aberdeen,who swiftly removed his honorary degree.
Even Aberdeen residents are a little perplexed over the Wind Turbines decision.Though a proposal that would ''outshine'' Mr.Trump's business promises ten-fold,in terms of local economy injection,it does appear on the surface,unfair to Mr.Trump [?].
So,who knows what might happen,if ''The Donald'' completes his journey to ''The White House''[?].In a ''cartoon world'',first item on the agenda would be to declare war on Scotland !

Hillary Clinton continues to make progress by stealth,in her efforts to secure the Democratic Party's nomination for the exalted office of US President.Staying out of controversial debate,appears to have been her general strategy,and with a wealth of political experience,she puts herself forward as ''the sensible candidate'' - the ''safe pair of hands'',if you will.
However,''the candidate of the left'',Bernie Sanders,is making inroads into Mrs. ''Auto-cue'' Clinton's lead,and if he can maintain the financial contributions required,could chase Mr. ''Serial Lothario'' Clinton's wife,to the wire.
Senator Ted ''The Zodiac Killer'' Cruz,is by no means,out of the race to secure the Republican Party's Presidential candidacy.Though,apart from representing ''Christian morality'' among ''rank and file'' Republicans,what he actually stands for,save an alternative to ''The Donald'',is far from clear.He may have benefited from rival Mr.Trump's recent perceived slur on his wife.In addition,Trump never far from ''the physical violence''inference,with more recently,Trump's campaign manager being cautioned by police,for assaulting a female journalist.
Almost day to day,''The Donald'' lurches from one controversy to the next,though it always seems that ''there are no flies on him'',and his campaign continues to gather pace.Republican aligned commentators and Republican ''old guard'' reflect that their Party is unwell,and that the emergence of an enigmatic personality such as Mr.Trump,is a symptom of this illness.
So,what is the actual attraction of a person as Donald Trump,who has held no political office,before venturing into this ''very political'' arena ? Journalists observe that he speaks largely for the ''Working Class Whites'' and ''Disenfranchised'' social minorities.That Trump dares to say the ''unspoken'' and articulates concerns that seasoned politicians would never come close to approaching.In short,he offers ''hope'' to those whose fears have never really been addressed.
Perhaps,the reality is that Donald Trump has nothing to lose,and believes he could do a much better job than seasoned politicians.''Self Belief'' can become contagious [?].Trump,for instance,thinks little of the Scottish Government's attempts to dissuade him from land developing in their country.While he locks horns with them in a dispute over Wind Turbines,he continues to buy ''choice'' real estate in his mother's land of birth - most recently,the prized Tunberry golf course,and regular host venue for The British Open Golf Championships.
An ''Unstoppable force'' [?].How far can ''The Donald'' travel ?
Following Senator Cruz's emphatic victory over Mr.Trump,in the Wisconsin Republican Party Primary,doubts on Trump's longevity in his quest for US Presidency,have surfaced for the first time.
Donald Trump's team worked hard in the State,to secure the popular vote - with Trump underlining,time and again,that he bought all his windows for his many skyscrapers from Wisconsin - but,as it transpired,to no avail.
That Ted ''The Zodiac Killer'' Cruz is now in the driving seat,would however,be misleading.Senator Cruz is yet to be seen as having universal appeal.
Given that current polls indicate that a final ''vote off'' between Trump and Hilary Clinton,would see the USA with its first female President,and by landslide proportions,the Republican Party may be faced with brokering a deal at its culminating convention.Neither ''The Donald'',nor ''The Zodiac Killer'' may be viewed as ''fit for purpose'',and Republican delegates might have to consider springing another ''rabbit from the hat''.
This last happened in 1952,when dissatisfied Democrat delegates put forward a candidate,with no previous political experience.He was a ''military man'' who had been the Allied Commander in World War Two.His name was Dwight Eisenhower,and he went on to secure the US Presidency for the Democratic Party - with a landslide victory.
In this year of USA deciding on a new leader and,effectively,the most influential figure in Western societies,a ''minor'' problem faces Great Britain in July.
That ''tired and grey'' island has to decide,after 40 years,whether it still wants to remain in the most exclusive economic club in the world - The European Union.
Generally fed up with contributing huge fees,and seeing little in return,and with public services stretched with the influx of increased migration,many appear to have decided that ''enough is enough'' - and time to wave ''Johnny Foreigner'' a fond farewell.
But when it comes to ''electing'' a ''President'',there rarely is a conflict in consciences.Someone gets out a slide rule,and decides who holds closest lineage to William The Conqueror,without having ''previous'' in a lunatic asylum.

Following the New York primaries for both Republican and Democrat Parties,a likelihood of ''Hilary vs. Donald''for US President becomes more apparent.
Incumbent US President Obama,with 9 months tenure remaining,has been visiting Britain,to assist Prime Minister Cameron's plight to persuade the British electorate to stay in The European Union.
Also on Mr.Obama's agenda was a visit to Windsor Castle for a celebration lunch to mark Queen Elizabeth's 90th Birthday.Landing in the grounds of the castle,Mr.Obama was ushered into the front passenger seat of a Range Rover.Where upon his personal entourage were shocked to discover that the driver was a 95 year old man,whom they,only later,were to discover to be one Philip Battenburg - a sprightly pensioner and husband of the Queen.
With six months to go,before the USA electorate decide which candidate will follow President Obama,into The White House,it has become accepted that,barring ''accidents'',Mrs.Hilary Clinton and Mr.Donald Trump will contest this hallowed position.
Recent opinion polls have indicated that Mrs.Clinton holds a popularity lead of between six and thirteen percent over Mr.Trump.Perhaps now,only ''Hilary's'' to lose,and become the first female US President.
Various elections,taking place in the UK,last Thursday,included the contest for Mayor of London.Sadiq Khan,representing The Labour Party,was victorious,with a record 57% of the popular vote.And,in so doing,became the first Muslim leader of a major Western capital city,in history.This,can only auger well,in the current ''world climate'' of threats from Islamic fundamentalism - since tolerance and non-discrimination has spoken ''volumes'' [?].
I note that Mr.Khan defeated Conservative candidate Zac Goldsmith into second place.Mr.Goldsmith is the son of the late James Goldsmith - a businessman and fellow ex-Etonian,accused in death,of masterminding the disappearance of ''Lucky'' Lord Lucan,following Lucan's presumed acts of murder and attempted murder upon his children's Nanny and wife,respectively.James Goldsmith is further accused of ''disposing'' of ''Lucky'',when he became too much of a liability.

With Hilary Clinton yet to officially win the Democrat candidacy for U.S.President,Donald Trump is taking full advantage of his presumed Republican ''wings'',and is working hard to ''steal a march'' on Mrs.Clinton's opinion poll lead.
Canadian stand-up comedians are now making jokes about the need for a border wall,to keep out a rush of American ''Trump dissenters''.They point out that the wall would not need to be as high as the one proposed by Trump,on the Mexican border,since Americans are no longer seen to be as lithe and fit as their Mexican neighbors [!].
With three weeks to go,before the British electorate decide whether to remain in The European Union,recent figures published suggest record numbers of illegal immigrants,entering the country.Since over-population and the need for greater border control,has lain at the heart of general fears,this does not auger well for the ''Remain'' campaign,spearheaded by Prime Minister Cameron.
Indeed.Mr.Cameron's very position is ''on the line'',and has been accused by his own party of over-playing the ''fear'' card.
Britain currently has the best performing economy in the world - but the reality is that this means ''the least worst performing economy''.
Rubislaw32: Black Power salute. Another example is Rock n' Roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis who introduced his 13-year old bride to the British press (1958). A third is the case of FBI Director James Comey, who offered the Crown Office the stolen casefile of Joan Webster.

Rubislaw32: There are certain things the US establishment will never forgive of their own citizens. One of which is embarrassing their nation (USA) when overseas. One example is US Olympic 200 metres champion Tommie Smith at the 1968 Mexico Olympics, who gave the...
Dec 7, 2023 2:25:28 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Moreover, a misconception that Donald Trump played Brutus to Comey's Caesar. No, no, no... Brutus was US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein - Trump's ''Mr Peeps'', who had been parachuted in by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions - specially for the job.
Dec 7, 2023 1:33:38 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Perhaps I should point out (?) that the most influential agency in this whole sorry Z-tale is the US DOJ, with over 100,000 employees, run by the US Deputy Attorney General. But, everyone is capable of failing to reach further than they are able to grasp.
Dec 7, 2023 1:13:51 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: going to put away their childish and Z-case-defeating games or not, will decide for me what I elect to do myself (as a law-abiding citizen). And, if it means naming further players in both LE and politics, then that will happen also. LE, QUIT effing about.
Dec 6, 2023 19:38:59 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: A guest has made the astute observation that if the Zodiac dies, without having been brought to justice - then the FBI could freely continue to paint the Zodiac's (false) narrative. Well, once I know whether US DOJ, MA DOJ and Crown Office are actually....
Dec 6, 2023 19:32:44 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: It's difficult to assess whether William Grant was aware that he had been rumbled for his Z-fatherhood. Lafferty was given special dispensation to know that Grant had ''failed'' a Zodiac DNA match. But, allowed to disclose this, once Grant became deceased.
Dec 6, 2023 18:23:03 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: From Grant Thornton, forensic accountant: ''Time markers mutating aside, a father and son will have the exact same Y Chromosomes.''. For the other 50% of a son's DNA, these X Chromosomes are inherited from a son's mother. CA DOJ's W J Grant Z-bombshell ?
Dec 6, 2023 17:01:04 GMT -8
Rub--law32: For the Zodiac case, we should all be in ''Pam's corner'' regardless of anything else. And right now, it is CA DOJ and loyal CA PD's who are showing themselves up as wanting what is right and proper. As for the rest ? There is much that leaves desiring.
Dec 5, 2023 18:10:49 GMT -8
Rub--law32: One can't expect much from outfits as FBI in this life. And, it is to Richard Nixon's credit that he was turned down. But the judiciary ? Talk about ideas above their station. Probably compare themselves with brain surgeons as important people ? Think on.
Dec 5, 2023 17:38:42 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ''Does that mean that Zodiac's and Grant's DNA is 40% identical ? '' . Yes Lyndon, and you can add another ten percent besides. The imperfect, eccentric and noblest of gentlemen, Lyndon Lafferty. You were the greatest and most tenacious bloodhound of all.

Rubislaw32: Superb ? As a consequence, 81 year old Kit Harrisson was found guilty of Brenda's murder, July 14th 1978. From re-investigation to conviction this year, it had taken 8 years of hard work. Harrisson's mistake ? Masturbating beside Brenda, after killing her.
Dec 5, 2023 7:49:30 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Scottish residences for Z ? Although tenuous to some, The Scotch Tape Letter alluded to Brenda Page, 5 days following her brutal murder in Aberdeen. The ''facts'' are that Z's main motivation was to humiliate Dave Toschi with the letter. Mistake for Z.
Dec 5, 2023 7:43:23 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: And yes, the unsaid is likely the case: The ring-fenced 5 Bay area murders have always presented difficulties for a conviction with confidence. Comey ''ruined'' Joan Webster's case - so Emma's case might be the only chance left to secure a Z-conviction.
Dec 5, 2023 6:23:38 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: But, as I have made the point to a guest: ''You have to have the evidence.'' - a convenience Catch 22: He's not Zodiac without convicted of being so. Originally, Mulholland was juggling BOTH Z and Pan Am Lockerbie. The latter prioritizing the former, now.
Dec 5, 2023 5:53:01 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Barged ? Well, time has moved on and a fresh conviction for Pan Am Lockerbie beckons. Emma's case is being fobbed off with a false solve (inferred), because it's in the way. A high chance it is Z's last one, and that he is still alive, residing on UK soil.
Dec 5, 2023 5:37:42 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: More particularly, the times Z spent near Inverness, Aberdeen & Glasgow respectively. At least that was the justification for David Cameron originally financing Frank Mulholland, anyway. But, appears like Emma is being barged by Pan Am Lockerbie, now.
Dec 5, 2023 5:24:06 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: the scandal was barely UK national news, as Comey's dismissal became ''World news''. A serious point is, that Crown Office solved Brenda Page & Renee MacRae (and hoped to solve Emma Caldwell), based on Z's residences in various parts of Scotland.
Dec 5, 2023 5:15:54 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: One could look at the Zodiac case from a UK perspective, in the last 9 years: The dismissal of James Comey became a consequence of what started as ''The Police Scotland Spying Scandal''. But, so few knew the reality, even in law enforcement circles, that..
Dec 5, 2023 5:10:24 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: The reality for Dave is, that he now exists to perpetuate the myth of an honest solve - if only to spare his own blushes. Or, until ordered otherwise - or even arrested by legitimate LE agencies involved in the case. Defeating the ends of justice, Dave O.
