Will Texans stand by U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz?

ted-cruz

Suddenly, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, isn’t acting like a shoo-in for re-election.

After his prime-time non-endorsement of GOP nominee Donald Trump at the Cleveland convention caused a firestorm, Cruz became the target of a lot of speculation. Already Democrats such as former State Sen. Wendy Davis, formerly of Fort Worth, and U.S. Rep.Joaquin Castro of San Antonio are talking about throwing their hats in the ring for U.S. Senate in 2018.

As soon as Castro said in a joint CBS News’ interview with his brother, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro, that he was “going to take a look at it,” Cruz launched a fundraising appeal.

“Despite any record of achievement and a liberal ideology out of touch with the majority of Texans, the Castro brothers have the full support of the mainstream media and Washington establishment willing to do everything in their power to turn Texas blue,” said Cruz. “Help me fight back!”

  • Robert Early

    This Texas family, and a few others I know personally, will no longer support Ted Cruz. He is politically dead.

  • democrat CockRoach

    He will be out on his behind along with Paul Ryan in November.

  • snowyriver

    Ted Cruz was born in Canada, with two parents that were Canadian citizens. Canada did not allow dual citizenship at that time.. Has Ted himself ever applied for US citizenship ???

        FACTUAL CRUZ CITIZENSHIP TIMELINE

        (Everything presented in this timeline is a matter of public record. All of it is based upon publicly reported events, public statements made by Rafael Cruz, Ted Cruz, officials with the Elect Ted movement or US and Canadian officials.”

        1957 – After working as a teen to help Fidel Castro gain power in Cuba, and being imprisoned for his actions by the Batista regime, Cuban Rafael Cruz applies for admittance to the University of Te’as as a foreign student and enters the US on a four year student visa to attend four years of college. He is a Cuban citizen attending a US college on a foreign student visa obtained through the US Consulate in Havana.

        1961-1962 – After graduating college at the University of Texas, and upon the expiration of his foreign student visa, Cruz Sr. applied for and received “political asylum” and was issued a “green card.” A green card is a permit to reside and work in the United States, without becoming a “citizen” of the United States, in this case, under political asylum from Castro’s Cuba. His citizenship status was that of a Cuban national living and working in the United States, under a green card work permit. According to US laws, the “green card” holder must maintain permanent resident status, and can be removed from the United States if certain conditions of this status are not met.

        1964-1966 – Cruz Sr. takes a few odd jobs, marries and moves to Canada to work in the oil fields. The Cruz family resides in Canada for the next eight years. “I worked in Canada for eight years,” Rafael Cruz says. “And while I was in Canada, I and my wife became Canadian citizens.” – (From and interview with NPR) “Peter Spiro, a legal expert on US citizenship at Temple University. Spiro says Rafael Cruz’s multi-country odyssey did not follow traditional models for immigration. SPIRO – “Ted Cruz himself seems to be an advocate of those traditional immigration models. Maybe he should be a little more tolerant of the nontraditional Versions, given his own father’s history.”

        1970 – Ted Cruz is born in Canada, to two parents who had lived in Canada for at least four years at that time, and had applied for and received Canadian citizenship under Canadian Immigration and Naturalization Laws, as stated by Rafael Cruz. Canada at that time did not allow dual citizenship. Both parents had to renounce their birth citizenship to be given Canadian citizensip. As a result, US statutes would have voided the prior “green card” status which requires among other things, permanent residency within the United States and obviously, not becoming a citizen of another country during the time frame of the US green card. Young Rafael Edward (Ted) was and is a natural born citizen of Canada.

        1974 – The Cruz family moves to the United States when Ted is approximately four years old. Rafael Cruz has publicly stated that he remained a citizen of Canada until he renounced his Canadian citizenship when he applied for and became a US Naturalized citizen in 2005. As a result, his wife and son were also Canadian citizens, his son being born a citizen of Canada in 1970.

        2005 – Rafael Cruz applies for legal US citizenship and renounces his Canadian citizenship. No record of Ted renouncing his Canadian citizenship or applying for US citizenship exists as of 2005.

        2013 – Freshman Senator Ted Cruz is a rising star in the Tea Party movement, and calls for him to run for the White House begin. In July, Ted Cruz is Questioned by the press about his interest in running for President, and the issue of his Canadian born citizenship is brought up Sen. Ted Cruz rejected questions Sunday over his eligibility to be president, saying that although he was born in Canada “the facts are clear” that he is a US citizen. He has even claimed on the news to be a natural born citizen of the United States.

        “My mother was born in Wilmington, Delaware. She is a US. citizen, so I’m a US citizen by birth,” Cruz told A&C. “I’m not going to engage in a legal debate.”

        NOTE: Senator Cruz omits the part of his father’s story, in particular, the part about his parents applying for and receiving Canadian citizenship prior to Ted’s birth in Calgary. He also attempts to gloss past the actual definition of natural)born Citizen by implying it is a mere legal debate for others to figure out.

        August 2013 – As Ted’s political stock rises in the Tea Party, so do press questions about his eligibility for office. Ted decides to quiet the questions by releasing his birth certificate, which now becomes absolute proof of Ted’s Canadian citizenship at birth, 1970, Calgary, Canada. The release of the Canadian birth records only serve to further fuel the controversy.

        Ted seeks Legal Counsel, as the media is now pressing members of Canadian Immigration and Naturalization to clear the matter up, when instead, Canadian officials confirm the Ted Cruz was in fact born a legal citizen of Canada, the son of two parents who had also applied for and received Canadian citizenship prior to Ted’s birth.

        “He’s a Canadian,” said Toronto lawyer Stephen Green, past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section.

        “Generally speaking, under the Citizenship Act of 1947, those born in Canada were automatically citizens at birth unless their parent was a foreign diplomat, ”said ministry spokeswoman Julie Lafortune.

        Legal counsel advises Ted to “renounce his Canadian citizenship” in order to make himself eligible to run for the presidency. Of course, renouncing one’s original citizenship only further proves one’s original citizenship.

        May 2014 – Ted Cruz legal counsel files to renounce Ted’s Canadian citizenship in an effort to make him eligible to run for high office under the natural born Citizen clause Article II in the US Constitution. The courts can make no-one a natural born Citizen, that is a birth right.

        AUSTIN, Texas – Canada-born US Sen. Ted Cruz has given up his citizenship from his birth country, making good on a promise from last summer. spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said “the Tea Party favorite formally gave up his citizenship May 14th. He received official confirmation of the action at his Houston home Tuesday.”

        News that he had renounced his citizenship was first reported by the Dallas Morning News. The newspaper also broke that Cruz had dual Canadian) US citizenship when he released his birth certificate in August.

        Frazier said Cruz “he is pleased to have the process finalized” and that it “makes sense he should be only an American citizen.”- of course, the Constitution does not require that one be only an American citizen, but rather a natural born Citizen.

        As of February 4, 2015 – No evidence of any US Citizenship has been released to confirm anything at all about the true citizenship status of Ted Cruz.

        Because Ted Cruz has been confirmed a legal citizen of Canada up until renouncing his Canadian citizenship in May of 2014, and because he has been confirmed a citizen of Canada at birth, and because his father is on public record stating that he and his wife became citizens of Canada during their eight years living in Canada and because Rafael Cruz remained a citizen of Canada until he renounced and applied for legal US citizenship in 2005. There is simply NO WAY that Ted Cruz was, is or ever can be a Natural Born Citizen of the United States eligible for the offices of President or Vice President.

        So, does this mean that members of the Tea Party are engaged in an overt effort to defraud Tea Party members who are Ted fans, by all of this legal fancy foot work.

        The facts are all well documented. You decide…

        One who inherits their Citizenship at birth via nature alone, from their natural birth parents, is a natural born Citizen of the United States. According to all available information on Ted Cruz and his family, Ted Cruz was a native born citizen of Canada and not a natural born Citizen of the United States. Now, Ted is either not too bright, or not too honest… But he is at least one of the two… and what about the Tea Party leaders behind this legal shell game?

          • snowyriver

            And I appreciate your response.. I get lots of hate mail, when I an trying to tell the truth.

          Thanks again. I know what you mean about hate mail. But the truth is the truth and it will set you free.

  • rannan3

    Cruz is a spoiler. And NOT a man of his word ! ’nuff said !

  • Walter Flatt

    NO WAY SHOULD THIS LYING, CONTRACT BREAKING GUY BE ELECTED FOR ANYTHING, EVEN DOG CATCHER, I WOULD NEVER VOTE FOR HIM FOR ANYTHING.

  • The only reason Perry had such a good run as Governor is because he had some great people around him advising him. YOU IDIOTS ALL. Do you have any idea what Cruz has done for Texans and for Texas? He went up against the Supreme Court to defend our state against the overreach, and without Cruz, who stayed up late with then Attorney General Greg Abbot and wrote a little something called TEXAS v THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, in which YOU SHOULD APOLOGIZE for that one bill,The Philistines are lined up our doors and Hillary and Obama were going to bus these FAKEUGEES–men only between the ages of 16-36- with no widows or orphans to be found to a city or town near you, or perhaps yours, with no prior knowledge.The SC upheld Judge Hanen’s cease and desist with bringing in anyone from Syria or the Middle East until we can find a suitable place for them in their own neck of the woods, for they will never assimilate, they all believe in Sharia, or they wouldn’t be Muslim(taken from the Koran). The reasons all of the kidnapping of young girls in Britain, called “Muslim Grooming,” were never arrested? It is their religious beliefs. Well our religious beliefs are quite different. I say to shake Cruz’ and Abbott’s efforts, for well it paid off. I have known the man for about 12 yrs. Not only did he do everything he promised to do in his campaign promises to our state, but much, much more. Our firebrand from Texas apparently knows something we do not. He has had a continual A+ both from NumbersUSA and Heritage Foundation,as well a Liberty College. With those questionnaires, we ask what they believe in, then we watch how often they vote said beliefs. Who else has taken such an initiative of religion into his party’s base? Who else but Cruz stood alone after the second horrible video was shown, thus he took to the House floor and decried any more money going to the sell of souls. I do not want my hands to be bloody and believe, if you are not standing for life, in all of its developing stages, then you too are guilty and As Cruz stood alone, yet again, he asked, Where O where is Rubio, he conveniently finds some where more important than to let the people know where he stands, and Cruz has always been front and center when any party his or theirs crosses that line, and to vote for the continuance of rt of the funding-of PPH, which is not even a government entity. You see, the special interests are in gay marriage, the SC twice now creating laws, which Congress has given their only weapon to fight them. In each law the Supreme Courts makes concerning social issues, and since the Republican embedded establishment whores who wouldn’t mind Socialism in an old hipster’s lingo/that has never worked in every place it has ever been tried. Case in pt,France with the incoming French newly elected woman, their first SOCIALIST PRESIDENT PC of course, and everyone can see the see the more she brings in didn’t take long to the have quick dire consequences, the for real Firebrand from Texas, yet again does nothing if it is not a well kept secret

  • robert sanders

    Ted Cruz is a lot better TEXAN than STUPID WINDY and CASTRO BABY KILLERS.

  • I dislike the personality Trump allows us to see, but it is refreshing to see a normal person answering honestly instead of acting as if each question must be vetted by the “party” before being answered.
    This election will decide the future of SCOTUS and therefore the future of elective abortion.
    A vote for anyone but Trump is a vote for allowing elective abortions up to the day before the due date. Yes; Elective abortion is a fundamental human right and should be protected for 12-weeks. Still; This human right expires once a new human Fetus has developed based on human dignity.
    Sen Cruz faced a choice I could not have made better. I could not endorse a man who called me a liar either. I could say, “if your conscience can NOT accept “abortion-anytime-Hillary”, your obligated vote should be clear”, regardless of personally despising Trump.

  • Joanne

    Ted Cruz is a straight shooter, he’s smart, he fights for our rights and he probably will be President.

  • Ken says

    Texas does NOT like RINOs, the Bush Family and the Establishment they represent. Ted and Heidi are Bush babies and closet RINOs + Heidi is a Wall Street Banking Power and on the Council on Foreign Relations with Bill Clinton, George Soros and Geo HW Bush. Look for Heidi to dump Ted in the near future – he is detrimental to her Career + she want to live in DC & NYC. The California Beach girl has a bright future and it is not with Ted who should have run for PM of Canada – he could have won that.

  • jug

    Trump pulled dirty tricks, numerous, on Cruz because he was so scared of him!

    And the sucker voters fell right into the second lying liberal, NY democraps trap as well!

    Slick Willie convinced his buddy Trump to run on the republican ticket, to protect Hillary during the primaries and block any ligitimate conservatives from the race.
    Brilliant!

  • DOC

    He did not kiss Trumps ass. The way Trump talked about Cruz family he did good.

    • Robert Early

      It may be only a minor point admit all the hatred revealed here; but, as a matter of proven fact, Cruz attacked Trump’s wife first. I don’t approve of the sorry actions of either of them; but let’s just keep the facts in order.

  • ADRoberts

    This is all media and RINO and Trumpster bull. The fact is that unless, the weak minded cave, there is no one even close to being as good for the nation as Cruz is.

    • Suzanne C

      A businessman who ran a billion plus dollar business against a career politician who has never put a dime into a business plan. I will take Trump2016 any day of the week.

      • ADRoberts

        You should talk to all those people who did business with Trump, who were victims eminent domain, who lost money in his casinos. who lost money to his bankruptcies
        I think I see who your are. GREEDYI.

  • rowleya

    Cruz only real Conservative who has Remained true to his constituents and his Principles

    • ADRoberts

      Rated at 97% conservative. The only one higher is Mike Lee. And he is from Utah and a mormon..
      Cruz has an outstanding career record. an outstanding voting record, is hated by the RINOs who want to give Obama everything he asks for and more.
      God help us, when the “wisdom” of the Trumpsters is so focused on supporting Trump and tearing down all who DON’T, that they act this way.

      Guess what. Not a single Trumpster has won a single vote for Trump by their vicious attack on those who don’t like him. JUST LIKE TRUMP
      FACT”: Trump would rather lose the election than ever apologize.
      His ego is the MOST important part of his existence

    • Suzanne C

      Yes, I guess his word is not considered in his principles, lol.

    • Steve Dolyniuk

      You are as NUTS as ADRoberts !

  • SD of AZ

    The voters should be looking at his attendance and work records. He and Rubio were both opportunist in their enterprise as young senators. He has a very poor record of attendance and voting like Rubio. But he is a good politician and has a lot of experience in that field with the years he has spent with the Bush establishment and the NWO crowd his wife hangs with. He is a want to be career politician and will be first to switch to lobbying if the voters reject him in Texas. Just follow his record and see if it has improved. Likely not and he has big, big plans to use the senate for that agenda. Too much like the current prez. A harvard attorney with a track record of political agendas and opportunist positions. Aspiring to the highest seat in the future still and his history of family is just as murky as that of the current sitting arrogant narcissistic ass in the prez position now. Are either of them legally qualified for that seat? Guess BO has set a prescedence.

  • right2foot

    The Supreme Court is the key issue, not career Cruz. Unite now, persuade later…it’s not that difficult to figure out.

    • ADRoberts

      Yep. We united under McCain in 08.
      We united under Romney in 12.
      And now you have been suckered AGAIN. with Trump.
      You think Trump is our last hope.
      Not at all.
      II Chronicles 7:14 is your last hope. And you are not smart enough to even read that single verse.

      • stgabrn

        YOU ARE WRONG. These are not the ‘People’ this verse refers to. Good try. You are a Pharisee. All pomp and show, but do not tell the truth, you are a burden to the people.

        • ADRoberts

          And what authority do you have to make such a declaration? Do you want to discount John 14:12 and claim that that instruction from Jesus did not apply either?
          Now, bright boy. Exactly how can you claim that when it says, ” who are called by My Name, it does not mean Christians who are called by the name of Christ?

          No, you added the “pharisee” accusation because you had NOTHING else to justify your cliam.
          So, what exactly do you believe God will do for those who believe in Jesus Christ today?
          I bet you claim that all of the Old Testament does not apply to us at all.
          There is no pomp in stating that those who believe in God SHOULD repent and turn from their wicked ways.
          In fact, if you bothered to check HISTORY, you would find out that the SIX great AWAKENINGS America has experienced were when they did EXACTLY what II Chronicles 7:14 says to do.
          I will even point out the FACT that you don’t know when the last GREAT REVIVAL occurred. It was in 1903. And it went world wide.
          Too bad. You have been refuted totally. But you can be compared to another group of people in history. That would be those who rejected the prophets. No matter how many of His servants he sent, the nation REJECTED their message.
          So again. YOU tell us what God is demanding of HIS people today. I will give you a hint. It is found in Revelation and is the description of the SEVENTH and last church. Laodicea.
          Now my turn. You, by trying to discount the II Chronicles 7:14 instructions, ARE a servant of satan.
          Oh, and just in case you want to try again. FIRST tell us all the miracles you have been involved in as per John 14:12. I have glorified God by my prayers being answered with miracles. Have YOU?

          • stgabrn

            Thou protest too much. By what authority, you ask, do I speak.By the authority of the whole Bible. Learn and apply it as it should be understood, don’t just pick and choose a verse here and there and try to make an argument. I will give you a hint,,you speak of Rev. and the Laodicean congregation. I tell you, to do the work of what Jesus told his disciples to do. You figure it out, since you are so chosen. Hit a nerve didn’t I? Maybe you should be a little more humble, and not try to call so much attention to what you think you know, credit goes to God and God alone. YOU worked NO Miracles. And since you claim you have, I know by that statement that you do not belong to Christ. Jesus never took credit for the miracles he performed, HE ALWAYS GAVE CREDIT TO THE FATHER> Pr. 3:5-6 5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Also, stop mixing in Politics. I have said enough to you. Don’t want to hear any more from you. May you have everlasting peace. If i am not mistaken, the Pentecostals believe 1903 was the timeline for The Last Great Revival. May Almighty God enlighten you, and shine his loving light on you.

          • ADRoberts

            Now that might sound reasonable to someone who does not have wisdom. But you did not write the Bible. You can’t even prove that YOUR opinion about any given verse is better than ANYONE elses.
            The works Jesus told his disciples to do was in John 14:12. LOL No you did not hit a nerve. I have been quoting that verse repeatedly here and elsewhere. But it always winds up being to those who, WHEN I ASK THEM TO TESTIFY, as to their own MIRACLES, have nothing to say. I have been involved in FIVE miracles that I know of. And have prayed for others and not had a report back. And God gets the credit for everyone of them. But it was through MY obedience and prayer that they happened.
            Now you have determined that the WORK of God, that provided healing to some is now to be discounted by YOU since you choose to work to discount MY faith. That is now between you and God.
            The miracles are real. A man, dying of heart failure. a woman with scoliosis
            a man in the Philippians with “brain fever”.
            You discount what God did in answer to my prayers? May God judge you.
            As to the Pentecostals, I know nothing about what they believe. How would YOU know. I got my information from a guy named Edwin Orr.
            You now pretend to be benevolent? No, your “fruit” is now known.

          • stgabrn

            You are still touting what YOU have done, put not ever giving credit to The Almighty. That is what I am pointing out. You puff yourself up. It was foretold that miraculous abilities granted by the spirit to the apostles, and passed on by them to others, would last only during the ‘infancy’ of the Christian congregation, thereafter ending. (1Co 13:8-11; see GIFTS FROM GOD [Gifts of the Spirit].) M’Clintock and Strong’s Cyclopædia (Vol. VI, p. 320) says that it is “an uncontested statement that during the first hundred years after the death of the apostles we hear little or nothing of the working of miracles by the early Christians.” Nevertheless, Jesus and his apostles warned of future deceptive powerful works that would be done by apostates and also by a symbolic wild beast, enemies of God.—Mt 7:21-23; 24:23-25; 2Th 2:9, 10; Re 13:11-13.
            No! my fruit is not known now. You are too presumptuous, that you know me. ONLY GOD KNOWS THE HEART! Do not take credit that is due to a higher power. Unless you are working for Satan performing miracles. He can make it appear as though something miraculous has appeared. That is called being a Charlatan. I do believe. The scripture at John 14:12 were for that group that were with Jesus at the time.
            I know nothing about Pentecostals either, I merely ask you a question. My you do get bent out of shape easily. Jesus always answered in a mild manner. Never gave himself credit fot anything and always gave all glory and credit to his Father. Also, your remark. ‘May God judge me’,,,I certainly pray he does. Which I know he will. Would not like the likes of You who calls himself a servant of God, but doesn’t live true to Gods’ teachings. A true man of God would try to be more understanding, and explain to someone with love and kindness, hoping to gain a brother. But I see you are only interested in ‘blowing your own horn. Have a great life and reflect on how to incorporate the fruitage of the spirit, which, if you do not know where they are. Try looking at Galatians 5:22-26. Oh hear, I will tell them to you, there may be others who would like to know also. And they can decided if you are practicing them also.
            Gal.5:l22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
            OK I am done with you. Nice discussion. Take care. Practice Love and Understanding.

        • ADRoberts

          You can say that all day long. The Entire Bible is God’s message to mankind. Want to declare that is not the truth. And what any verse you find says can and is, even out of context, of benefit when the message is from the Holy Spirit. Deny that too. You don’t speak for the Holy Spirit. ANd you have NO WAY of knowing if GOD will honor those verses IF American were to turn back to Him.
          Now there is ONE possible explanation as to why you would be so adamant that these verses are not for Christians. ANd that is that you are a JEW. But not a MESSIANIC Jew but an arrogant secular one. You want to claim superiority? Then explain why God grafted in the Gentiles for 1993 years. That is right. According to Daniel, that is the year, the Jews turned back to Messiah.

  • annie.o75

    Cruz. Shot himself. In. The foot….no one wants a dude like that…he is done. Shame on him…….

    • ADRoberts

      You used the word. I will turn it back on you. YOU are the fool. He said exactly what had the highest integrity. He said exactly what I was going to do anyway. He tried to get Trump to just apologize and the arrogant fool determined that a POWERFUL man never apologizes to anyone. NOT EVEN GOD.
      So in your WISDOM, you base your condemnation of Cruz on his refusal to endorse the foul, mouthed, wicked arrogant rich man who has NEVER even asked God to forgive him
      God help you. You will share in the judgement God gives Trump.

      • stgabrn

        ADRoberts, you are a I misguided evil, vindictive human (I say that lightly, onl;y because I have no other species to refer to you as, unless it is demom), you have no idea what you are talking about, and HOW DARE YOU thinking and saying that anyone will share in the judgement God gives Trump. ONLY GOD KNOWS and reads the heart of man, YOU hypocritical, so called, Christian. Beware what you try to call down on others,,it may go to you 10 times worse. You are to judge NO MAN! You have no idea how Almighty God will judge anyone. So keep your Pharisaical condemnation of anyone to yourself. Evil man/woman which ever one you are.

        • ADRoberts

          Time will tell.
          But for now we know that:
          Trump has a foul mouth that almost can’t be controlled
          Trump bragged about his seduction of married women.
          Trump claimed that he would build a wall and then told the NYTimes that he never intended to build it.
          Trump claimed that Kim Davis should obey the laws of the land. SHE WAS. Since the SCOTUS cannot make laws, when they struck down the prohibiton against gay marriages, it left a void. NO LAWS AT ALL/
          But since He WAS AND IS in favor of gay marriage, we can see where he was coming form
          Trump claimed to be PROLIFE. And then continues to give to Planned Parenthood.
          Just how many of his statements has he had to walk back? :How about that declaration as to who should be punished if abortion were illegal. lol
          And that fiasco of his proclamation as to what North Carolina should do with those BATHROOM laws. LOL
          So you declared me evil. What was it I said that was EVIL? I know. Anything that is critical of Trump; is evil to a Trumpster.
          LOL

        • ADRoberts

          Who said I judged anyone. Unless they have changed the definition, which I am sure you have, in order to judge, I have to declare guilt, pronounce punishment and make sure that the punishment is carried out.
          YOU FAILED.
          Now you failed to prove that you have even read the Bible. Because if you had, you would know that the Book Of Romans says exactly that. You approve of the wickedness of trump? Then according to Romans, you are just a evil.
          I did not call down on ANYONE any punishment. God will do that.
          But you do seem to have shown your membership in the Church of Laodicea.

          And you are right. I read it as fool and it was foot. I still say that those who support Trump, who has NO CONSERVATIVE record are being fooled.

          • jnora

            Well, AD, your Cruz really pooped out, didn’t he?
            Trump may just have an October surprise…you never know.

  • Suzanne C

    Cruz committed political suicide, this is his own fault. I for one will Support Rick Perry.

    • SD of AZ

      Good choice.

      • ADRoberts

        Right. Perry IS a Bilderberg. And you are dumb enough to want him? LOL
        Good thing you live in Arizona. Our problem in TExas is all those illegals who are being pushed to sign up illegally and vote.

        • Suzanne C

          LOL, Cruz the phony christian, phony conservative or yes just phony. Perry will kick him back to Canada.

          • ADRoberts

            Let me guess. You are a yankee. You don’t understand that unless Perry uses the same voter fraud that was used by Cornyn in the last primary he faced, Texans KNOW that Perry is a Bilderberg.
            So where are you from? Since you want talk for TExans. LOL

          • Suzanne C

            LOL, what a pathetic Cruz supporter, no dearie I was born and raised in the South. Cruz cut his own throat with his lyin’ sneaky campaign. Rich Perry is very well liked and Cruz is just a nasty nasty man.

          • jnora

            I have this awful, nagging feeling that he, in some way, abuses his family, too. He has such an ego and when I saw his daughter pull away from him when he tried to kiss her, it was alarming to me. His wife doesn’t look very happy either.

      • jnora

        Still a vote for Hillary.

    • ADRoberts

      Without a doubt, you are a Trumpster. You don’t have the integrity to just support that fake, phony conservative. Just like Trump, you feel that it is your duty to attack anyone and everyone who does not ALSO support him.
      Now an observation. Your actions are JUST LIKE THE MUSLIMS.
      I guess, you could call it the General Sherman effect.

      So a word to you as warning. God says that you will be held accountable for EVERY IDLE word. And now, you have been warned.

      So one more thing. You back a man who has NO RECORD. Go to the Conservative Review site and see what the record as a conservative Trump has. HE DOES NOT HAVE ONE. But then you can look at a Real CONSERVATIVE. Cruz’s number is 97%.
      And you, in all of your wisdom, reject a proven conservative, in your rabid determination to back the FAKE Trump.
      God help you.

      • Suzanne C

        Yes I am a Trumpette, and proud of it. the only phony is Cruz, a phony Christian, a Phony Conservative, a philanderer and a liar, all that describes Cruz. And just like Cruz you think God is listening to you and not to others, I see you are a phony Christian also. Cruz voted for TPP/TPA and still denies it his record is different, he supported the gang of 8, all he wanted was to take out the citizenship part. I support Trumo because he is a businessman, not a politician, Cruz has had only one job that was not in politics since Law School, he is a real career politicians.

        God help you pathetic Christian understanding, which is non-existent because you do not know what a real Christian is.

        • ADRoberts

          Everything you said, shows that you are deceived. It is now only a matter of time before you come to see just how badly you are mistaken.
          He is a MAN. He is not a good man. He is a devious, foul mouthed, philandering, liberal man who spent most of his life BUYING the influence of corrupt liberal politicians.
          That make him as bad as them.

          I do know what a real Christian is. And I can , unlike you, giver verses and testify as to what God has done for me and through me.
          You have shown your bigotry against Cruz. His conservative rating is 97%. ANd that means nothing to you. You prefer to believe WORDS OF A MAN who just FOUR short years ago called himself a LIBERAL.

      • Nina814

        Trump is not a politician, therefore, you will not find a list of issues that will determine if he’s conservative or not. He was a regular citizen just like you and I until just recently. From now on he will start a decision-making record that will determine if he’s a conservative or not. However, we all have the right to change our minds on an issue as it develops. We’re no longer living in the 18th and 19th centuries when things were more cut and dry. We live in a very fast changing world and sometimes we have to be more open in our thinking, but our principles will determine how far our thinking will change.

        • ADRoberts

          Are you blind. He was THE backer of the most rabid of liberals. He has a record and that record is where he puts his money. He could have backed a real conservative. But instead he backed and gave money to McConnell who has a conservative record of just 44%. He backed Schumer, Clinton, Pelosi and all the other liberals. He was proabortion. He was the one who hired hundreds of illegals. He is still claiming that some areas need immigrant workers — for get training Americans. WHY? Not cheap enough for him. He is the one whose companies are STILL in China and Mexico.

          Now WHEN is he going to start PUTTING UP.

          • jnora

            AD, if someone was converted to Christianity, would you get on them for changing their mind?

        • jnora

          CORRECTION: AD IS NOT A REGULAR CITIZEN.

      • Steve Dolyniuk

        Well, now that I have read your opinion, I will go along with Suzanne C. You could not be more wrong. Did you hit your head hard years ago, or just recently ??

        • ADRoberts

          Again. No refutation. No argument. No logic. Just smears.
          Guess what. That proves you LOSE.

          • Steve Dolyniuk

            You lost a long time ago ! Get a brain transplant !

        • jnora

          I do know he has been like that as long as I have been on this blog. Talks in circles and doesn’t make sense. Never has ONE good thing to say about anyone. He thinks he is the only one that is right, as shown in the reply below. He loves to tell people they LOSE or other such things. I, for one, really like Trump. We need someone like Trump to do the dirty work of getting rid of the terrorists. No one else seems to have the guts and, besides, Hillary says there is nothing that can be done about outsourcing. What????

          • jnora

            I know one thing for sure, Trump loves this country and he doesn’t like to fail. If he wins and doesn’t have a Democratic Congress, he will do what he says he will do.

      • jnora

        Quit judging people, AD. Your guy lost and our country’s best hope is Trump. We have a choice of two people, basically, that can win. Please quit saying pejorative things to people. It is really getting old.

    • mudguy1

      So what else will Trump flip flop on a couple of months ago Trump said that he wouldn’t change the minimum wage now he said it needs to go to $10. Trump didn’t like the changed that Cruz made to his speech which was “And, like each of you, I want to see the principles that our party believes prevail in November” Trump called that nasty.
      You and others did not like Cruz’s statement “Vote your conscience” but it was ok for the Sander’s people to vote their conscience.

      • jnora

        I am a conservative and even I think it should probably be raised to $10 in the states with a high cost of living. Although, I live on only my Social Security and it is less than minimum wage. MW isn’t meant to live on all your life. You should excel and MOVE UP.

        • mudguy1

          A most real Consrervitive do not believe that. What happens to the ones who are at $10 because they have proved they are worth it. Shouldn’t get an other raise? Where will it stop?
          Minimum wage jobs are not meant to raise a family on. The majority of the people who are working in MW jobs a young unskilled people under the age of 25. And most of the are under the age of 21. Even raising the MW to $10 dollars jobs will be lost prices will go up.

    • jnora

      That is a vote for Hillary, you know. Please don’t do that.

  • Wingedgodd3ss

    Can we help someone else fight back? We are tired of you Cruz.

    • ADRoberts

      You got a mouse in your pocket? Those who have ANY sense still support Cruz. In fact, I am going to WRITE IN his name.
      WHY? Because Trump is a FAKE. And I will TRUST GOD. And do what is right. I will vote for the most conservative and highly qualified man. And that is Cruz.
      God have mercy on you when you find out that Trump is just like Clinton

      • Steve Dolyniuk

        Cruz should not even have been running. He is NOT a Natural Born Citizen of the USA. So the liar isn’t qualified at all, DUMMY !!

        • ADRoberts

          And by these words, you proved that YOU are the one who believes lies.
          And you are the one who should go argue with the federal judge.
          Maybe you could argue with Cruz’s record. CR rating of 97%. Trump has NO rating at all.

      • Robert Early

        Go ahead. Throw your vote away.

        • ADRoberts

          Stand before God, you will. And you can explain why you refused to do what was RIGHT.

          • Robert Early

            Yes,
            We will all stand before god. I know what a Christian is. As a pastor for the past 55 years, I can tell you that we have far too many Christians, and far too few followers of Christ. Your hero worship of Red Cruz just does not measure up to what is right. He is my Senator; but he violated the trust I placed in him. He may have now given control to evil Clintons. I can not longer trust Ted Cruz.

      • Fowler Delores

        That means you are supporting Hillary, How stupid could you be

          Now that shows just how simple a mind you have. You think that we only have TWO options.
          NOT
          And by that you show that you don’t believe God’s ;promise in II Chronicles 7:14

      • snowyriver

        Hey AD, show me that Cruz has applied for his United States citizenship.. He was born in Canada with two Canadian citizen parents.

        • ADRoberts

          Hey bright BOY. Citizenship is from the parents in America. Now YOU show me YOUR certificate of American citizenship.
          And since you are fighting a bottle that you have already lost, how about you go and argue with the Federal JUDGE who ruled that he was and is still legal.
          And then, to top it off, you explain why you are so upset about Cruz and have stopped saying a word about Obama. You are either a phoney or a hypocrite.
          Now bright boy, look at the Conservative record of Cruz. You want to claim that you want a CONSERVATIVE? LIE.
          Cruz’s record is 97%. Only one person is better. So why are you still showing your self to be an *ss when Cruz was and is the most likely person to have saved America.

          Now I have bested you again.
          Want to try to refute anything I have said? Not at all. You will resort to NAME calling as that is all you have left. LOL

            I just post the truth.. How does this grab you ??

            FACTUAL CRUZ CITIZENSHIP TIMELINE

            (Everything presented in this timeline is a matter of public record. All of it is based upon publicly reported events, public statements made by Rafael Cruz, Ted Cruz, officials with the Elect Ted movement or US and Canadian officials.”

            1957 – After working as a teen to help Fidel Castro gain power in Cuba, and being imprisoned for his actions by the Batista regime, Cuban Rafael Cruz applies for admittance to the University of Te’as as a foreign student and enters the US on a four year student visa to attend four years of college. He is a Cuban citizen attending a US college on a foreign student visa obtained through the US Consulate in Havana.

            1961-1962 – After graduating college at the University of Texas, and upon the expiration of his foreign student visa, Cruz Sr. applied for and received “political asylum” and was issued a “green card.” A green card is a permit to reside and work in the United States, without becoming a “citizen” of the United States, in this case, under political asylum from Castro’s Cuba. His citizenship status was that of a Cuban national living and working in the United States, under a green card work permit. According to US laws, the “green card” holder must maintain permanent resident status, and can be removed from the United States if certain conditions of this status are not met.

            1964-1966 – Cruz Sr. takes a few odd jobs, marries and moves to Canada to work in the oil fields. The Cruz family resides in Canada for the next eight years. “I worked in Canada for eight years,” Rafael Cruz says. “And while I was in Canada, I and my wife became Canadian citizens.” – (From and interview with NPR) “Peter Spiro, a legal expert on US citizenship at Temple University. Spiro says Rafael Cruz’s multi-country odyssey did not follow traditional models for immigration. SPIRO – “Ted Cruz himself seems to be an advocate of those traditional immigration models. Maybe he should be a little more tolerant of the nontraditional Versions, given his own father’s history.”

            1970 – Ted Cruz is born in Canada, to two parents who had lived in Canada for at least four years at that time, and had applied for and received Canadian citizenship under Canadian Immigration and Naturalization Laws, as stated by Rafael Cruz. Canada at that time did not allow dual citizenship. Both parents had to renounce their birth citizenship to be given Canadian citizensip. As a result, US statutes would have voided the prior “green card” status which requires among other things, permanent residency within the United States and obviously, not becoming a citizen of another country during the time frame of the US green card. Young Rafael Edward (Ted) was and is a natural born citizen of Canada.

            1974 – The Cruz family moves to the United States when Ted is approximately four years old. Rafael Cruz has publicly stated that he remained a citizen of Canada until he renounced his Canadian citizenship when he applied for and became a US Naturalized citizen in 2005. As a result, his wife and son were also Canadian citizens, his son being born a citizen of Canada in 1970.

            2005 – Rafael Cruz applies for legal US citizenship and renounces his Canadian citizenship. No record of Ted renouncing his Canadian citizenship or applying for US citizenship exists as of 2005.

            2013 – Freshman Senator Ted Cruz is a rising star in the Tea Party movement, and calls for him to run for the White House begin. In July, Ted Cruz is Questioned by the press about his interest in running for President, and the issue of his Canadian born citizenship is brought up Sen. Ted Cruz rejected questions Sunday over his eligibility to be president, saying that although he was born in Canada “the facts are clear” that he is a US citizen. He has even claimed on the news to be a natural born citizen of the United States.

            “My mother was born in Wilmington, Delaware. She is a US. citizen, so I’m a US citizen by birth,” Cruz told A&C. “I’m not going to engage in a legal debate.”

            NOTE: Senator Cruz omits the part of his father’s story, in particular, the part about his parents applying for and receiving Canadian citizenship prior to Ted’s birth in Calgary. He also attempts to gloss past the actual definition of natural)born Citizen by implying it is a mere legal debate for others to figure out.

            August 2013 – As Ted’s political stock rises in the Tea Party, so do press questions about his eligibility for office. Ted decides to quiet the questions by releasing his birth certificate, which now becomes absolute proof of Ted’s Canadian citizenship at birth, 1970, Calgary, Canada. The release of the Canadian birth records only serve to further fuel the controversy.

            Ted seeks Legal Counsel, as the media is now pressing members of Canadian Immigration and Naturalization to clear the matter up, when instead, Canadian officials confirm the Ted Cruz was in fact born a legal citizen of Canada, the son of two parents who had also applied for and received Canadian citizenship prior to Ted’s birth.

            “He’s a Canadian,” said Toronto lawyer Stephen Green, past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section.

            “Generally speaking, under the Citizenship Act of 1947, those born in Canada were automatically citizens at birth unless their parent was a foreign diplomat, ”said ministry spokeswoman Julie Lafortune.

            Legal counsel advises Ted to “renounce his Canadian citizenship” in order to make himself eligible to run for the presidency. Of course, renouncing one’s original citizenship only further proves one’s original citizenship.

            May 2014 – Ted Cruz legal counsel files to renounce Ted’s Canadian citizenship in an effort to make him eligible to run for high office under the natural born Citizen clause Article II in the US Constitution. The courts can make no-one a natural born Citizen, that is a birth right.

            AUSTIN, Texas – Canada-born US Sen. Ted Cruz has given up his citizenship from his birth country, making good on a promise from last summer. spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said “the Tea Party favorite formally gave up his citizenship May 14th. He received official confirmation of the action at his Houston home Tuesday.”

            News that he had renounced his citizenship was first reported by the Dallas Morning News. The newspaper also broke that Cruz had dual Canadian) US citizenship when he released his birth certificate in August.

            Frazier said Cruz “he is pleased to have the process finalized” and that it “makes sense he should be only an American citizen.”- of course, the Constitution does not require that one be only an American citizen, but rather a natural born Citizen.

            As of February 4, 2015 – No evidence of any US Citizenship has been released to confirm anything at all about the true citizenship status of Ted Cruz.

            Because Ted Cruz has been confirmed a legal citizen of Canada up until renouncing his Canadian citizenship in May of 2014, and because he has been confirmed a citizen of Canada at birth, and because his father is on public record stating that he and his wife became citizens of Canada during their eight years living in Canada and because Rafael Cruz remained a citizen of Canada until he renounced and applied for legal US citizenship in 2005. There is simply NO WAY that Ted Cruz was, is or ever can be a Natural Born Citizen of the United States eligible for the offices of President or Vice President.

            So, does this mean that members of the Tea Party are engaged in an overt effort to defraud Tea Party members who are Ted fans, by all of this legal fancy foot work.

            The facts are all well documented. You decide…

            One who inherits their Citizenship at birth via nature alone, from their natural birth parents, is a natural born Citizen of the United States. According to all available information on Ted Cruz and his family, Ted Cruz was a native born citizen of Canada and not a natural born Citizen of the United States. Now, Ted is either not too bright, or not too honest… But he is at least one of the two… and what about the Tea Party leaders behind this legal shell game?
