Ted Cruz is often touted as the man of principle, a conservative truth teller… As much as we would like to believe that, in the same way Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh do – there are too many disturbing red flags.
Some of Ted’s flip-flops include:
Allowing The States To Legalize Marijuana
Background Checks On Guns
Agriculture & Flood Insurance
Abolishing the TSA
No Child Left Behind
Then we have the men around Ted that do not seem to worry the anti-establishment types, but why?
His campaign manager, Chad C. Sweet, co-founded the Chertoff Group with former Bush and Obama administration Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff.
Cruz’s foreign policy advisor is the notorious neocon James Woolsey, the former director of the CIA during the Clinton administration. Woolsey is connected to the now largely defunct Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a think tank with an agenda formulated by top neocons William Kristol and Robert Kagan. PNAC was at the forefront of the Bush administration push to invade Iraq. He is a former vice president of the defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and an advocate of the neocon hardline on Iran.
Ted’s foreign policy team includes Elliot Abrams, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and the son-in-law of Norman Podhoretz, a trailblazing neoconservative ideologue. Abrams was a key adviser on Mideast policy at the National Security Council (NSC) during the George W. Bush presidency and also a staunch advocate of the Iraq invasion, the hardline on Iran and military strikes against the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
Ted Cruz’s Wife is a Goldman Sachs VP
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.
Versed at Misdirection
The March 3rd 2016 Fox Debate showed a very skilled Ted Cruz avoiding a direct question about his H1B stance. Megan Kelly noted that Ted did a 180 on his quadrupling of H1B’s. The larger point missed by the likes of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, is that long before Ted’s conversion, a bipartisan group of senators started to investigate. The stalwart truth teller refused to participate! This is troubling when you combine it with the PNAC connection, the Goldman Sachs connection, the Booz Allen connection, the CFR connection… and the list goes on.
However, you have to admire how smooth Ted is and how lack luster the conservative media remains to this slight of hand. What is so disingenuous about this response is Ted is part of the process to make or stop bills like H1B not Trump. Trump can take advantage of them – like all of of his competition, but he doesn’t have the power to change it. Ted on the other had does and elected to ignore it… until called out.
Ted’s 180 flip on this issue is book-ended with his now stated 180 day moratorium on H1B. 180 days sounds long enough to let the issue die off and one has to wonder why a Conservative Ted Cruz prior to the issue being used as an attack against him, in his run for office, refused to participate in investigating this abuse. Conservative Stalwart or Establishment Opportunist… one has to wonder.
