Limbaugh is pushing Cruz this morning. Singing his praises.
NO one ever brings up the glaring problems with Ted Cruz.
The Cruz resume is that of a GOVERNMENT LAWYER. Which is about on the same level as a 'community organizer'.
I’ll NEVER understand this. ALL these conservatives pushing Cruz.
It’s the most hypocritical thing I’ve ever witnessed.
EIGHT years of all of them pissing and moaning day in and day out
about the POSSIBILITY of Obama NOT being born on US Soil, but they have
NO problem with Cruz.
If Cruz didn’t preach like a Baptist minister and was a democrat, they would EAT him alive and pitch an absolute fit over the fact this guy was born on CANADIAN soil to a Cuban Father who
didn’t bother to denounce his Canadian Citizenship until he ran for
Even being a Senator wasn’t enough to make him do it! WHY????
The same people also complained about Obama being a first term senator
and running for office when he should be doing his senate job. But if
it’s Ted, it is just dandy.
Why do they excuse it just because they feel he ‘feels’ their brand
of religion? It’s as biased as voting for Hillary simply because she’s a
woman or a Muslim who only votes for Muslims.
I find it curious. And hypocritical.
That alone should make them reject the FOREIGN BORN con man Ted Cruz.
I DO NOT have any intention of getting into the ‘natural born’ argument.
I want a president born on US SOIL and after all these years of
demanding Obama has no right to be president, they’ve got some nerve
NO ONE outside of the Christian right is ever going to vote for Ted Cruz.
There are SO many reasons to reject Cruz. His flip flopping during the campaign over immigration is more than enough! Ted is OWNED by the cheap labor/bad trade/ amnesty lobby. The ONLY objection Cruz had to the gang of 8 amnesty was citizenship. Ted wants them all legalized, none deported, but is too dishonest to call that what it is...amnesty.
Ted Cruz praises Marco Rubio s work on immigration
Posted by The Right Scoop
on May 6th, 2013¨........
The firebrand Republican has nothing but praise for his colleague Sen.
Marco Rubio, R-Fla., as he pursues immigration reform. ¨Marco has
worked very, very hard to tackle the very difficult problem of how to
fix our broken immigration system, " Cruz said in a interview with the
Houston Chronicle. "And I think he has worked in good faith in a sincere
desire to craft a solution as to how to approach immigration."
Cruz added that Rubio was a good friend and one of the strongest leaders
on the national scene. In spite of his praise, Cruz maintained that
giving illegal immigrants a pathway to citizenship was not something he
"The amendment that I introduced removed the path to citizenship,
but it did not change the underlying work permit from the Gang of
Eight," he said during a recent visit to El Paso. Cruz also noted that
he had not called for deportation ....
Cruz said recent polling indicated that people outside Washington
support some reform, including legal status without
citizenship......Cruz has proposed increasing the number of green cards
awarded annually, to 1.35 million from 675,000. He also wants to
eliminate the per-country limit that he said left applicants from
countries like Mexico, China and India
Headline: Can You Handle the Truth? Ted and Heidi Cruz and the North American Union
Editor’s Note: Anyone who simply wants to anoint Ted Cruz as the next great conservative,
without first vetting him, is part of the problem we have in this
country, at least in my humble opinion. Those of us who refuse to admit
that we have been fooled before are simply in denial. For the record I like Ted Cruz. I do, however, have some questions about him including his eligibility. A couple of weeks ago we ran a never before seen interview with Cruz in which he clearly stated that Heidi’s involvement with the Council on Foreign Relations
was a matter of her joining as a voice of dissent. After reading the
below article you can decide whether or not you believe his words. -Dean
Garrison, DC Clothesline Editor
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) met his wife
, Heidi (née Nelson), while working on the George W. Bush presidential campaign of 2000. Heidi Cruz is currently head of the Southwest Region in the Investment Management Division of Goldman, Sachs & Co.
and previously worked in the White House for Condoleezza Rice and in New
York as an investment banker for J.P. Morgan. Wikipedia
lists Heidi Nelson Cruz
as an “investment banker
” and a “historical member” of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
Heidi Cruz was a member of the CFR-sponsored Independent Task Force on the Future of North America, which
was launched in October 2004. The Task Force advocates a greater economic and social integration between Canada, Mexico, and the United States as a North American region.
Comprised of a group of prominent business, political and academic
leaders from the U.S., Canada and Mexico, the Task Force was organized
and sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations
(U.S.), the Canadian Council of Chief Executives
and the Mexican Council on Foreign Relations. It was co-chaired by
former Canadian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, John
Manley, former Finance Minister of Mexico, Pedro Aspe, and former
Governor of Massachusetts and Assistant U.S. Attorney General William F.
Its main publication is the 70-page Task Force Report #53 entitled, Building a North American Community
(May 2005). Heidi Cruz is listed as a member of the Task Force (page 9
of the report in PDF) and described as “an energy investment banker with
Merrill Lynch in Houston, Texas” who “served in the Bush White House
under Dr. Condoleezza Rice as the Economic Director for the Western
Hemisphere at the National Security Council, as the Director of the
Latin America Office at the U.S. Treasury Department, and as Special
Assistant to Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick, U.S. Trade Representative.”
The Report’s recommendations include (see pp. 7-32 of the Report; pp. 29-54 of the PDF):
1. ESTABLISH A COMMON SECURITY PERIMETER BY 2010
“The governments of Canada, Mexico, and the United States should
articulate as their long-term goal a common security perimeter for North
America. In particular, the three governments should strive toward a
situation in which a terrorist trying to penetrate our borders will have
an equally hard time doing so, no matter which country he elects to
2. DEVELOP A NORTH AMERICAN BORDER PASS
“The three countries should develop a secure North American Border Pass with biometric identifiers
. This document would allow its bearers expedited passage through customs, immigration, and airport
security throughout the region.”
3. DEVELOP A UNIFIED NORTH AMERICAN BORDER ACTION PLAN
Specific recommendations under this plan include:
- “Harmonize visa and asylum regulations, including convergence of the list of “visa waiver’’ countries;
- Harmonize entry screening and tracking procedures for people, goods, and vessels (including integration of name-based and biometric watch lists);
- By 2010, “Lay the groundwork for the freer flow of people within North America. The three governments should commit themselves to the long-term goal of dramatically diminishing the need for the current intensity of the governments’ physical control of cross-border traffic, travel, and trade within North America. A long-term goal for a North American border action plan should be . . . the elimination of most controls over the temporary movement of these travelers within North America.“
4. LAW ENFORCEMENT AND MILITARY COOPERATION
“Security cooperation among the three countries should also extend
to cooperation on counterterrorism and law enforcement, which would
include the establishment of a trinational threat intelligence center,
the development of trinational ballistics and explosives registration,
and joint training for law enforcement officials.”
Now I’m beginning to “get” why U.S. police departments are hiring non-US citizens as officers
5. SPREAD THE BENEFITS OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
“NAFTA has transformed Mexico, but it has also deepened and made much
more visible the divisions that exist in the country…. The gap in wages
has led many Mexicans
north in search of higher incomes and better opportunities. For the past
three decades, Mexico has been the largest source of legal immigrants
to the United States, and Mexican-Americans make increasingly valued and
growing contributions to the life of the United States and, through
remittances, to their families at home. Mexico is also the leading
source of unauthorized migration, with attendant economic and security
problems in both countries and untold hardships for Mexican migrants.
Over time, the best way to diminish these problems is by promoting
better economic opportunities in Mexico.”
In other words, more socialist “spread the wealth”!
6. ESTABLISH A SEAMLESS NORTH AMERICAN MARKET FOR TRADE
“With tariff barriers virtually eliminated, and the outlines
of a North American economy
time has come to take a more comprehensive approach to strengthening
the economic prospects for citizens in all three countries.
The first step is to encourage convergence in the most-favored-nation tariff rates each partner
charges on imports from outside North America. Next, the governments
should reduce the remaining nontariff barriers to the flow of goods and
services, and address problems arising from charges of price
discrimination and subsidization by competitors in North America.
Finally, they should coordinate their approach to unfair trade practices
by foreign suppliers to the North American market
. The ultimate goal should be to create a seamless market for suppliers and consumers throughout North America.
7. INCREASE LABOR MOBILITY WITHIN NORTH AMERICA
“To make the most of the impressive pool of skill and talent within North America, the three countries should look beyond the NAFTA visa system.
The large volume of undocumented migrants from Mexico within the United
States is an urgent matter for those two countries to address. A
long-term goal should be to create a ‘North American preference’
—new rules thatwould make it much easier for employees to move and for employers to recruit across national boundaries
the continent…. Canada and the United States should consider
eliminating restrictions on labor mobility altogether and work toward
solutions that, in the long run, could enable the extension of full
labor mobility to Mexico as well.”
Specifics on how to create a North American free flow of labor include:
- By 2010, streamline immigration and labor mobility rules to “enable
citizens of all three countries to work elsewhere in North America with
far fewer restrictions than immigrants from other countries.”
- “Special immigration status should be given to teachers, faculty, and students in the region.”
- “Move to full labor mobility between Canada and the United States”
by “eliminating all remaining barriers to the ability of their citizens
to live and work in the other country.”
8. NORTH AMERICAN POLITICAL INSTITUTIONS
The Task Force recommends the following North American regional political institutions be established:
- An annual North American summit meeting.
- A North American Advisory Council.
- A North American Inter-Parliamentary Group to meet every other year.
In the last part of the Task Force’s report, “Additional and Dissenting Views,” Heidi S. Cruz wrote (pp. 33-34):
“I support the Task Force report and its recommendations
aimed at building a safer and more prosperous North America. Economic
prosperity and a world safe from terrorism and other security threats
are no doubt inextricably linked. While governments play an invaluable
role in both regards, we must emphasize the imperative that economic
investment be led and perpetuated by the private sector. There is no
force proven like the market for aligning incentives, sourcing capital,
and producing results like financial markets and profit-making
businesses. This is simply necessary to sustain a higher living standard
for the poorest among us—truly the measure of our success. As such,
investment funds and financing mechanisms should be deemed attractive
instruments by those committing the capital and should only be developed
in conjunction with market participants.”
Now you know why, despite his blustering against Obama’s executive
amnesty for millions of illegal aliens in this country, on March 27,
2015, Ted Cruz indicated he “remains open to a path to legal status for undocumented workers.”
Born in Canada of an American citizen mother and a Cuban father, Ted
Cruz held dual Canadian-U.S. citizenship. But it was only when the Dallas Morning News
August 2013 pointed out his dual citizenship that Cruz finally applied
to renounce his Canadian citizenship — which meant that in 2012 when
Cruz had run for and was elected a U.S. senator, he was a Canadian
citizen. On May 14, 2014, Cruz finally ceased being a citizen of
Canada. See “Republican Sen. Ted Cruz announces presidential campaign, but is he eligible?
FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Yes, Obama lied!
France suffered more casualties (murders and
injuries) from mass public shootings in 2015 than the US has suffered
during Obama’s entire presidency
Despite the impression that President Obama has been creating, France
suffered more casualties (murders and injuries) from mass public
shootings in 2015 than the US has suffered during Obama’s entire presidency (Updated 524 to 428). Note that these numbers don’t adjust for the fact that the US has 4.9 times the population of France. The
per capita rate of casualties in France is thus 7.95 per million and
for the US it is 1.34 — France’s per capita rate of casualties is thus
5.93 times higher than the rate in the US.
A systematic look at mass public shootings from the US and Europe is available here
: On Thursday evening the number of people
injured in the California attack was raised from 17 to 21, thus increase
the US causality total to 428. The number of people injured in the
Paris attacks on November 13th has also been increased from 352 to 368
so the total casualties for Paris is now 524.
