TED CRUZ’S WIFE IS A GOLDMAN SACHS VP

The establishment specializes in the old fashion bait-and-switch. It knows the people are sick and tired of government as usual and they want change. Obama was billed as Mr. Hope and Change. But once installed in the White House, he immediately continued and expanded the Bush agenda, that is to say the agenda of the political establishment. Barry, like his predecessor, is little more than a frontispiece, a teleprompter reader for the elite.

Now that we’re fed up with Obama, it is time for the next round of phony change. That change will likely be represented by reformulated Tea Party Republicans Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.

“The Republican establishment despises Ted Cruz. And that’s great news for the senator from Texas: It’s the most prominent sign that he’s the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination,” the National Journal opined last week.

The faux government shutdown with its intense partisan squabbling and meticulously orchestrated theatrics provided Cruz and the reformulated Tea Party Republicans with a stage to present themselves as the answer to politics as usual. According to the script, a staid GOP dominated by the likes of old guard John McCain and John Boehner is afraid of Cruz and the supposedly renegade faction of Tea Party activists in the House. But it’s all show business.

For all his allure as an outsider, Canada-born Ted Cruz is in fact an insider playing a role similar to the one Barack Obama played back in 2008 when his handlers portrayed him as the hope and change candidate out of nowhere.

Cruz’s insider connection is a family affair. His wife, Heidi, is a Goldman Sachs vice president in Houston, Texas, according to her LinkedIn profile. She also served as an economic advisor for the Bush administration. In 2011, a Cruz campaign spokesman portrayed Heidi as “an expert on North American trade,” in other words she is savvy when it comes to globalist transnational trade deals like NAFTA, the single most destructive government move against the American worker in history.

She was also a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations (see her bio at Claremont McKenna College), a position that expired prior to her husband’s attack on the globalist organization. In October, 2011, Ted Cruz reportedly characterized the CFR as “a pernicious nest of snakes” that is “working to undermine our sovereignty.” He previously called the CFR “a pit of vipers” during a speech delivered on October 13, 2011, to a Republican women’s group in Sugarland, Texas. Ben Smith, writing for Politico, attempted to associate Cruz with Texas residents Ron Paul and Alex Jones in order to pass him off as a rightwing conspiracy theorist on the same page as fringe libertarians and starry-eyed constitutionalists. He is, of course, nothing of the sort.

Like the domestication of the Tea Party and the expulsion of its more purist liberty-minded activists, the Cruz the warrior pitted against the establishment motif is another slick subversion directed at the political elite’s most puissant opposition – the real Tea Party and a threatening number of patriot activists gnawing at the edges of the political establishment.

"Cruz joined the George W. Bush presidential campaign in 1999 as a domestic policy adviser, advising then-Governor George W. Bush on a wide range of policy and legal matters, including civil justice, criminal justice, constitutional law, immigration, and government reform."

Ted Cruz & CPAC: What a Pair!

Hardliners still dominate movement conservatism

by Kelley B. Vlahos

Ted Cruz

If CPAC is a key barometer of the conservative movement, then let’s face it — all hopes that the right side of the political spectrum is ripe for a re-boot in its approach to defense strategy and foreign policy are sadly misplaced.

Sure, there was a millisecond of opportunity when Republican Sen. Rand Paul stood up at the Heritage Foundation last month and spoke of containment over preemptive war, diplomacy over boots on the ground. He won some more points here at Antiwar when he filibustered over the question of whether the administration had the right to kill its citizens in drone attacks on U.S soil. He even used his time to rebuke the president for using the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) to wage "war in unlimited places."

"It was a wide-ranging indictment of our foreign policy of global interventionism, a gauntlet thrown down in the path of the neocons who control the foreign policy department of the GOP," wrote Antiwar’s Justin Raimondo, who up until that point had not been a very big fan.

But the Heritage speech has been overtaken by events, and despite much talk about the evil of drones, we don’t yet know whether Republicans who joined with Rand on the filibuster did so on principal or merely to thwart the Democratic President and his nominee for CIA Director, John Brennan. Brennan was ultimately confirmed, so it will be interesting to see which Republicans actually remain committed, including Rand Paul.

We know one thing — Paul may be speaking at CPAC (the Conservative Political Action Conference) in Washington on Thursday, but it’s Sen. Ted "Tea Party" Cruz from Texas who is getting the top slot, which is always the closing speech of the massive three-day confab. Cruz had also joined Paul in the filibuster, but you will best remember Cruz as the senator who all but called Chuck Hagel a turncoat and an anti-Semite during his confirmation hearings. It was black theater not seen since the McCarthy investigations 60 years ago: in order to shame Hagel over his ostensive lack of love for Israel and equally weak approach to Iran, Cruz indulged in cheap guilt-by-association invectives and shamelessly ripped Hagel’s own words out of context to use against him. Whether he was operating on his own, or on behalf of his powerful neoconservative friends, Cruz certainly would’ve made rightwing media hit man Andrew Breitbart, who died in March 2012, bust his brass buttons in pride.

Ironically, the only other sanctified figure at CPAC aside from Ronald Reagan is Andrew Breitbart, who will be feted in at least two tributes scheduled for the conservative convocation this week. Cruz’s genuflections to the kind of wingnut tropes Breitbart once exploited full measure – like the anti-war movement was "not anti-war, but a Saul Alinsky organizing tool to get Barack Obama elected … the very definition of un-American" (Breitbart said this in his own CPAC speech shortly before his death) – have won him the honor of SVIP (Super Very Important Person) at this year’s event.

There is always one or more SVIP at every CPAC, and to know who they are is to know the zeitgeist of the conservative movement at that moment in time. After 12 years of attending CPACs, this writer can safely say that not one of them was ever on the verge of a course correction in favor of a national security policy that would bring us back to our constitutional moorings, nor recognized, as Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared in 1961: "that only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."

No, Cruz joins a pantheon of recent CPAC "closers" including Sarah Palin, who once said military servicemembers have more virtue and honor than the rest of us, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, former U.S Rep. Allen West — a notorious Islamophobe whose military career was ended shortly after he was charged with assault for shooting his gun next to the head of an Iraqi prisoner— and Newt Gingrich, who once declared a "world war" on Islam.

Cruz’s Peculiar Brand of Hawkishness

By DANIEL LARISON
The American Conservative
March 20, 2014

A.J. Delgado explains that the foreign policy disagreements between Cruz and Paul are nothing new:

    In other words, Cruz has shown no actual noninterventionist leanings. Contrast that with his consistency on Iran or his recent statements on America’s role in the world. If foreign policy is a major issue for a voter—and for many it is and unquestionably should be—there can be no “Eh, I could go with either Paul or Cruz.” They were never together, thus there was never a breakup.

This is absolutely correct. Ever since he was a candidate in the Texas Senate primary, Cruz has taken a conventional hawkish position on virtually every issue, and in some cases has made a point of going beyond what other hawks in the party have been willing to say. While it’s true that Cruz’s candidacy was endorsed by the Pauls, this mainly had to do with Cruz’s constitutionalist rhetoric and domestic policy views. On foreign policy, Cruz has been similar to Rubio in that he endorses hawkish positions while trying not to be pigeonholed as a McCain clone. Unlike Rubio, Cruz can’t seem to help himself from going overboard in his rhetoric.

Delgado makes sense of Cruz’s confused Syria position:

    As for Cruz’s opposition to intervention in Syria, it was most likely adopted for the same reasons many interventionist-minded rank-and-file Republicans were suddenly sounding like Ron Paul himself: because Obama was for it, which meant they were against it. Lest there be any doubt, Cruz told The Weekly Standard this week that “he would have been open to aiding Syrian rebels if the administration had been able to identify nonjihadists among their ranks.”

Cruz’s opposition to bombing Syria was also quite a turnaround from his earlier view. It seems that no one remembers it now, but earlier in 2013 Cruz took a much more aggressive interventionist line on Syria, because at that time the convenient anti-Obama position in the GOP was to attack the administration for not doing enough. Last summer, Cruz was even talking about sending in U.S. forces to secure Syria’s chemical weapons:

    We need to be developing a clear, practical plan to go in, locate the weapons, secure or destroy them, and then get out. The United States should be firmly in the lead to make sure the job is done right.

But when Obama sought support for his “limited” strikes just a few weeks after this, Cruz was quick to change his tune and begin railing against the idea of acting as “Al Qaeda’s air force.” Not only does Cruz veer from one pole to the other as necessary, but manages to make whichever position he adopts less credible in the process.

Ted Cruz: Don’t let ‘anti-science zealotry’ shutdown GMOs

By Seth McLaughlin - The Washington Times - Saturday, March 7, 2015

Sen. Ted Cruz said Saturday that the nation should push back against the “hysteria” over food made with genetically modified organisms, saying these innovations in science should be celebrated for the positive impact they’ve had both at home and abroad.

Speaking the Iowa Agricultural Summit, Mr. Cruz said he is sick of politicians “blowing smoke” in Washington and vowed that Iowans have no bigger ally then him when it comes to pushing back against the federal government.

Mr. Cruz said GMOs helped to provide food for people across the globe and strengthen farms across the nation. He said that people who oppose GMOs and want to buy organic food can do that.

“People who decide that is what they want, they can pay for it already, but we shouldn’t let anti-science zealotry shutdown the ability to produce low-cost quality food for billions across the globe,” Mr. Cruz said.

WHAT A PHONY! Just realize that some of our fellow Americans are about to be duped into voting for the Ned Flanders of phony NWO puppets in the coming 2016 presidential (s)election... HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!

Of all the carefully crafted stage magic that goes into presidential candidates in this country, his fake, nasally, effiminate voice especially makes me want to bang my head against the wall until it stops.

PS - The establishment is already making arguments that because Ted's his mother was American born, it's somehow okay for him to run. They're going to try and push this grey area to open it up in the future. Cruz even recently renounced his Canadian citizenship. They are deliberately diluting the standard.

Via Politifact's article "Is Ted Cruz, born in Canada, eligible to run for president?":

"By virtue of his American-born mother, Cruz, 42, considers himself a natural born citizen and eligible to run for president. So is he eligible? The vast majority of legal thought and arguments indicate he is." (http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2013/aug/20/ted-cruz-born-canada-eligible-run-president/)
