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: The Zodiac then in his writings, imitating life imitating art imitating life. There seems to have been that surrealistic side to him in evidence - imagining himself as Dan Cooper the skyjacker, a desk top poem, a mural, and even a message in a bottle.

Rubislaw32: But, if we examine Jack as a template of fear used by the Zodiac, we see a man who actually strangled all his known victims - only to then desecrate them after death. And, someone who was impersonated in writing by someone else, using red ink - not blood.
Dec 7, 2022 19:31:22 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...likely an old sword bayonet was employed - accompanied by a gun for persuading victims' submission. Thereafter, the Zodiac appears to have often referenced Jack the Ripper by inference, to perpetuate the lie that he was an ''all round killing machine''.

Rubislaw32: ...which represented the facts about him. All indications to date suggest that the Zodiac was not a ''man of blades'', with his Lake Berryessa attack a ''one-off'' on account that he was running out of guns. And in that case, a double-edged blade, most...

Rubislaw32: ..yet to be brought to justice, so nothing actually ''from the horse's mouth''. And B) The Zodiac kept reminding us that his writings were all about leaving ''clews'' - a combination of truth, lies and red herrings. And up to the readers to sort out that..
Dec 7, 2022 19:10:14 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: As negative criticism is heaped on the new Netflix TV series about Jeffrey Dahmer for deliberate misrepresentation of the facts, it's worth considering the pertinence of any filmic representation of the Zodiac for accuracy, given that A) The Zodiac has....

Rubislaw32: Donna Lass reward poster : ''Family are confident that her abductor/murderer will be arrested, tried and found guilty.''. Now then, human remains were placed by Flume Trail, just 7 weeks before the FBI's Dec 11th 2020 Tweet. Everything out at once - FBI ?
Dec 6, 2022 18:59:55 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: You are the weakest link FBI, as CA DOJ considers arresting the Zodiac. With the MA DOJ having little to be proud about. But FBI - instead of behaving yourselves, you have become headless chickens in the wake of Comey's dismissal and disgrace. Dead meat.
Dec 6, 2022 16:03:58 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: So you see FBI, Z has your number on attempting to blame him for Donna Lass - an Achilles heel for you FBI. In addition, Z will know that Boston D.A. Jonathan Blodgett assisted James Comey to impress the Crown Office with Joan Webster's case file.
Dec 6, 2022 15:54:45 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...to Donna's victimhood, instead of Judith Hakari. Then in (circa) 1997, with the Zodiac's poster superimposition of a cipher, indicating that the Zodiac had changed his assessment, Z blamed the FBI exclusively (BEWARE I AM STALKING DOUBLE-ZERO !).

Rubislaw32: So, for the Zodiac out there still at liberty, in 1974 he sent Donna's sister Mary a Christmas card inferring that Donna had been allocated ''Guardian of the Pines'' - believing that Mary was in on knowledge that the FBI had allocated the Pines card to....

Rubislaw32: Face it FBI - you are ''screwed'' in all directions with influential LE hierarchies - and all of your case cover-ups have been observed; each with reasons, known by your peers. A ''can of worms'' - eh FBI ? But morally, the worst of these is Donna Lass.
Dec 6, 2022 9:01:04 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Moreover, and as far as I am aware, NCIS Washington D.C. were actually the first to know about the ''solution'' (MR Z = SON) under the Marianne Moore postage stamp, beyond CA DOJ & FBI. NCIS's first contact then, was with the Crown Office or US DOJ.
Dec 6, 2022 8:54:13 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: The implication then, that Comey cottoned on to Grant's DNA indicating he was Z's probable father, in 2014 - and went off in a ''hissy fit'', then breaking the law. And, with this information having emanated via the Crown Office (UK). Comey's downfall.
Dec 6, 2022 7:54:47 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: And, this is what the fall-out in the Zodiac case between CA DOJ & FBI seems to have come down to : James Comey felt that CA DOJ should have informed FBI about William Grant's DNA in 2002/2003. Whereas CA DOJ were officially, under no obligation to do so.
Dec 6, 2022 7:35:31 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...testing & eliminations that involved CA DOJ & FBI work, at the behest of President George W Bush. It may be the case then, that the FBI feel they were ''blind-sided'' by CA DOJ. FBI however, were in the service of CA DOJ like PD's, and no extra rights.
Dec 6, 2022 7:26:45 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...Zodiac Intelligence processors, one can't be certain if they the FBI received a similar circular as police departments, from CA DOJ. But 2004 would be in keeping with the DNA testing and suspects eliminations that took place 2002/2003. Those DNA....

Rubislaw32: Albeit unconfirmed, information I have read is that in 2004, a general circular went out to all PD's with Zodiac case connections, from the CA DOJ, that the case was to be ''run down'' on scale of investigations. PD's had to be served or gain permission...
Dec 6, 2022 7:14:20 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: That was poetic : The FBI peeled away the Marianne Moore postage stamp on the 1990 Celebrity Cipher card, to reveal that ''MR Z = SON''. Horrors for the FBI to find later that the CA DOJ had done them over William Joseph Grant's DNA. He was Z's Secret Pa.
