People are asking us, is the Canadian-born Senator Ted Cruz really a Washington outsider or is he just another neocon establishment player who willingly follows the globalist agenda? In order to find out, we did some research.

Back in 2014 a writer at Granite Grok questioned Ted Cruz’s self-proclaimed “outsider” status in light of his background as a Harvard-trained lawyer who worked for George W. Bush and Congressman John Boehner. The writer also talks about Cruz’s wife Heidi’s banking and Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) affiliations, stating:

“Essentially, Cruz’s wife Heidi once worked for Merrill Lynch and is a Goldman Sachs Regional Manager, which is a little concerning, given, you know, the massive bailouts and their involvement with the Federal Reserve in deflating our currency and killing our economy. However, she was also a member of a CFR task force that produced a report in 2005 called “Building a North American Community”.

Cruz himself once referred to the CFR as a “pernicious nest of snakes” working to undermine US sovereignty. This apparently includes his wife.

The CFR is a Rockefeller-funded group that is said to be occupied with the task of promoting the acceptance of global governance by Americans. Members there have written about why Americans must give up some of their sovereignty for a new order.

Cruz, along with Rubio, gets his advice from the same people who advise Hillary.

Another article from the Examiner, asks similar questions about whether Cruz qualifies as an outsider, and if he would be a supporter of the CFR’s “North American Union”, which many believe would indeed undermine the sovereignty of The United States.

Federal Reserve and IRS

To his credit, Cruz cosponsored a bill with Senator Dr. Rand Paul to Audit the Federal Reserve. Cruz has also stated he would like to abolish the IRS (the agency that collects taxes for the Federal Reserve) for some other type of tax. It is interesting that while he has shown his support for going up against the Fed, he supports the pro-war agenda of the central bankers, of which the Federal Reserve is a part.

Update: Cruz was AWOL for the vote on Audit the Fed as well as the vote to de-authorize ESSA and Common Core. Further, education activists are skeptical about proposed bill S306.

Read a critique of S306 here.

In this article from Freedom Outpost, Cruz is taken to task for cozying up to globalist Henry Kissinger. Kissinger is considered to be one of the top ranking members of the globalist elites representing bankers’ interests all over the world. More than just an adviser to the candidates, Kissinger was responsible for the election of Barack Obama, and is said to have recruited and placed other heads of state in power abroad as well. The Bilderberger’s Henry Kissinger has already stated that Jeb Bush will be our next president. Some even consider the grand manipulator Kissinger to be a war criminal. So far, our research has not shown that Cruz has ever visited the Bilderberg group…

Cruz is a recipient of over $106,000 from foreign pro-war lobbies (yes they are war lobbies), and once suggested that Senator Joseph Lieberman would make a good Secretary of Defense. Interestingly, Lieberman himself has taken more than $2.2 MILLION from these pro-war lobbies, the most of any US Senator. This proclivity to support war, is said by many pundits to be “spawning the New World Order abroad and a Police State at home”. At a recent event for the “In Defense of Christians” group, Cruz demonstrated his apparent ignorance of the plight of Christians in the middle east by instead using the opportunity to promote this agenda, and thus was booed off the stage.

Cruz’s foreign policy adviser is John Bolton who according to this article, is advocating for the bombing of Iran.

Other Affiliations – Religious Right

Cruz’s announcement for his candidacy for the Presidency got off to a rocky start when it was made at a rally with the students at Liberty University, who were forced to attend or be fined.

Cruz is a member and supporter of CUFI, an extremist religious group that is pro-war. He spoke at a recent Summit. Cruz delivers his speeches with the cadence of a preacher, and often inserts religious references. It is clear that Cruz would like to be the candidate of choice of the religious right. But as Pastor Chuck Baldwin observed, “…the Religious Right has compromised its principles and showed itself very ignorant of New World Order issues”.

Baldwin also opined: “…this is where the establishment Republican Party in Washington, D.C., is at its WORST. G.W. Bush’s preemptive war doctrine turned the national GOP into a pro-war leviathan. Like most every Republican in Washington, D.C., … Cruz has bought into the global “war on terror” apparition that is spawning the New World Order abroad and a Police State at home. There is nothing about Ted Cruz that leads me to believe that he would do anything to stop America’s militarism and hegemony that is wreaking havoc around the world and that is leading our country toward nuclear war.”

DHS Connections

When looking into those who are running Cruz’s campaign, we find the DHS connection.

“Chad Sweet is campaign chairman. Sweet is the co-founder of the security-focused Chertoff Group, a group he started with former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff after serving as his chief of staff.”

Sweet’s group was responsible for implementing the TSA’s nude body scanners in airports.

Patriot Act Extension, NSA Bills

On June 1, key portions of the Patriot Act that update the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) are set to expire. Among them is Section 215, which the National Security Agency (NSA) has used to authorize the collection of bulk records about millions of U.S. citizens’ phone calls.

Senator Cruz was one of four Republicans who voted YES on the extension of the Patriot Act.

He also sponsored a bill called the Expatriate Terrorist Act which would have given sweeping new powers to Obama to revoke the citizenship of anyone suspected of aiding a terrorist. Considering that no government report we have seen to date lists anyone such as ISIS or radical Islamists as “terrorists”, but instead, people who are critical of Islam, support certain mainstream figures, carry bibles, believe in sovereignty, cite the constitution, belong to a militia, or who use cash, or display the Gadsden, among a myriad of other ridiculous identifiers that would seem to make almost any American a “terrorist”, this bill was troublesome.

Also, see USA Freedom Act.

According to Congressman Justin Amash “Congress must not proceed with the latest version of the USA Freedom Act. While limiting certain types of bulk collection, the latest USA Freedom Act would authorize bulk collection of Americans’ records for the first time, thereby undoing some of the progress resulting from the Second Circuit’s decision”.

Cruz’s H-1B Visas Proposal

The H-1B program is supposed to bring in, on a temporary basis, workers with highly specialized skills not readily available in the U.S. The program is often used in the technology sector to bring in engineers and computer programmers.

But Cruz’s bill pushes for increased immigration for jobs for which we have too many workers already. Those foreign workers will work for less. While there is a shortage of workers in the trades, according to Bloomberg, there is NO shortage of STEM workers but STEM jobs. There have been congressional investigations into the allegation that some Americans were forced to train their foreign replacements. This H1-B visa bill is typical of the things the CFR, that “pernicious nest of snakes”, often promotes.

In a letter to a constituent, Cruz affirmed his support for Obama’s Trans Pacific Partnership. According to political strategist Dick Morris, embedded in this TPP/TPIP legislation is the path around Cruz’s bill for H-1B visas that couldn’t seem to clear the House. The Hill noted that this legislation is diametrically opposite of anything a ‘tea party’ would support, despite Cruz touting himself as being ‘tea party’.

To some, this is proof that Ted Cruz supports open borders for unrestricted immigration which is said to be hidden in the bill and feel it’s just about the same as, if not worse than, Obama’s amnesty. The argument against Cruz’s H1-B visas proposal is that foreign workers will take jobs from unemployed tech workers here, as well as be willing to accept a cheaper wage.

From Cruz:
Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding trade policy. Input from fellow Texans significantly informs my decision-making and empowers me to better represent the state. I especially appreciate your patience awaiting a response as we established our office and mail system.

One of my top priorities as your Senator is to promote policies that facilitate economic growth and opportunities. An important component of a growing economy is the freedom to trade. Free trade creates a competitive marketplace, spurring innovation and investment. We benefit with more access to higher quality goods and services for less. We see jobs created and our incomes go further due to greater economic productivity.

Under President Obama, annual economic growth is anemic and job growth is stagnant. I hope the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) produce agreements that reduce government-created barriers to trade, enabling increased prosperity for all involved. More economic growth will expand opportunity to those working to climb the economic ladder and achieve the American Dream.

Thank you for sharing your views with me. Please feel free to contact me in the future about any issue important to your family. It is an honor to serve you and the people of Texas.

For Liberty,
Senator Ted Cruz

Position on GMOs

Cruz praised Genetically Modified Foods, calling those opposed to them “anti-science zealots”.

Cruz on the Second Amendment

Cruz has said he supports the second amendment and has spent time on the gun range with NH voters. In fact he has spent time shooting one of the guns he says would be “reasonable” to be restricted even in light of the Heller Decision.

Cruz was the lawyer who submited an amicus brief representing 31 states in the Supreme Court’s Heller case.

“Indeed, it bears emphasis that amici States likewise have a strong interest in maintaining the many state laws prohibiting felons in possession, restricting machine guns and sawed-off shotguns, and the like.

But all 31 amici States agree that striking down the District of Columbia’s categorical ban on all operative firearms would pose no threat to these reasonable regulations.”

Support for Obama’s Stimulus in 2009

Ted Cruz, Closet Keynesian: Read His 2009 Defense of President Obama’s Stimulus

The senator has condemned the “failed” program — but as a lawyer he once earned big bucks arguing that it would aid America’s “economic recovery.”

“…before entering politics, when he was a $695-an-hour lawyer in private practice, Cruz once delivered a full-throated defense of the stimulus spending he now condemns. In a little-noticed legal brief Cruz filed in July 2009 on behalf of the Texas Retired Teachers Association, he argued in favor of the legality and constitutionality of the Texas state government using federal stimulus money to cut a one-time $500 check to some 250,000 retired teachers. Moreover, Cruz touted the economic benefits of the payments and noted that they would help fulfill the mission of Obama’s stimulus. These $500 checks, Cruz wrote, “will directly impact the [Texas] economy… and will directly further the greater purpose of economic recovery for America.”

Ted Cruz Votes to Increase the Police State (CISA)

What Pastor Chuck Baldwin had to say about Cruz’s Iowa win:

“Faithful readers of this column know that I have already expressed my feelings that Cruz cannot be trusted to be faithful to the Constitution–especially in matters that pertain to the Warfare State and the Police State. His ties to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and Goldman Sachs cannot be taken lightly. Birds of a feather still flock together. His staff is littered with New World Order fellow travelers. You are reading one Christian writer who would FAR rather vote for an unbeliever that will preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States than vote for a believer who will NOT preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. And there is nothing about Ted Cruz that convinces me he would be faithful to the Constitution–his Christian rhetoric notwithstanding.”

Cruz suddenly flipped on Edward Snowden, after Rubio sent flyers condemning him for his support of Snowden. Cruz called him a traitor. Snowden is the whistleblower who many in the liberty community view as a hero.
