PostHeaderIcon The Real Ted Cruz?

I don’t know why this Daily Caller editorial, “Who Is The Real Ted Cruz?” is just now showing up on Drudge; but it is devastating:

Vladimir Lenin said, “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.”

I can’t think of a better description of Ted Cruz’s relationship with the DC-Wall Street Establishment – Cruz being the scoundrel of course. Cruz’s claim of not being a tool of the political elite is like Bill Clinton telling the world, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

Webster’s definition of a scoundrel is a dishonest or unscrupulous person, and Cruz has become quite adroit at saying one thing while his history shows him doing the other. Rather than the outsider he claims to be, Ted Cruz is the ultimate insider, former top Bush 41 policy aide and globalist, Ivy Leaguer, and establishment insider.

Ouch… and that is just the beginning of the number the author does on the man he calls “Calgary Ted” and his wife:

And perhaps the ultimate hypocrisy of the native born Canadian is that his spouse, Heidi, by all accounts a lovely wife and mother, has been employed by Goldman Sachs since 2005. She is on leave as managing director and regional head of private wealth management. Heidi is a proud member of the lefty Council on Foreign Relations, advocates of one world government and the New World Order.

Heidi is not a bit player in the Cruz campaign with those credentials but rather an integral part of the campaign’s fundraising efforts. As reported by CNN last year, “She works the phones the way she worked them when she was at Goldman,” said Chad Sweet, the Cruz campaign’s chairman, who recruited Heidi to work at the giant investment bank.”

Yet we are to believe that the big Wall Street banks have no leverage over Ted Cruz? Why didn’t Heidi Cruz resign from Goldman Sachs instead of taking a leave of absence? That’s like saying Bill Ayers and Saul Alinsky have had no influence on Barack Obama.

Then, he discusses all the Cruz family connections to the Bush administration, such as:

And Chad Sweet, Ted Cruz’s campaign chairman, is a former CIA officer. Michael Chertoff, George W. Bush’s former Secretary of Homeland Security, hired Sweet from Goldman Sachs to restructure and optimize the flow of information between the CIA, FBI and other members of the national security community and DHS. Chertoff and Sweet co-founded the Chertoff Group upon leaving the administration.

A known tactic of the intelligence community is the use of strategic communications as a “soft power” weapon against it adversaries — the creation of false narratives by the effective use of all media — social, digital, newspaper, print, etc. Combined with denial and deception, it can be a potent force. Glenn Beck and Mark Levin are abetting this.

Despite his ability to lie with a straight face (sadly Nixonian) on his support for amnesty and TPP, he got nailed by Senator Marco Rubio on the debate. Acting like a prick in the U.S. Senate was the core of Ted’s disciplined effort to bury his old school ties and reinvent himself as a modern-day Jesse Helms and supposed Conservative outsider. It’s a ruse.

Read the whole thing. Again, I wonder why it took over a month for such a hit piece, published in the Daily Caller, to show up as a link on Drudge. Did Matt just now discover it, or was he holding off for some reason? If so, why now? What changed? ◄Dave►

    Nothing new here. Not to me anyway. All this information has been out there for quite a while. I’m pretty sure I shared this with you quite a while ago. http://cruzinforamerica.com/ted-cruz-discusses-wife-and-council-on-foreign-relations-video/

    I’m quite sure this is in both Hillary’s and Trumps binder of opposition research and will be deployed at a time they think most beneficial, and on cue the media will trot it out like breaking news that changes everything. It boils down to whose binder is thicker. The way I see it if Cruz were that much of an insider he would be the darling of the republican party. If an insider I would still take an insider that’s spent most of his time jamming up both sides than someone that has facilitated and backed both sides.

      No, I didn’t find anything new either, and yes you shared that video before. What I found remarkable was that it was all included in one editorial, in what I consider a reputable publication. More importantly, why is Drudge linking it now, when it is over a month old?

      The implication was that he was pretending to be an outsider and throwing the establishment under the bus, to ingratiate himself with conservatives for an early POTUS run. ◄Dave►

        Easy answer to why now. Cruz has momentum and there is a possibility he could win outright. That momentum must be stopped. The same as Trump must be stopped.
