And so it begins! Let us “raise a banner of BOLD COLORS ~ no pale pastels ~ And proclaim a dream of an America that, once again, will be ‘a shining city on a hill’!”


Ted Cruz is 2016’s FIRST announced Presidential Candidate ~ Are you getting the truth about him?

Since Ted Cruz announced his candidacy March 23rd, we have noticed a (seemingly deliberate) lack of accurate information about his background and accomplishments. Whether you plan to support Cruz in the primaries or not, we believe it is absolutely essential that you have accurate information before making your decisions. There has simply been NO outlet that has given true and accurate and complete reporting of Ted Cruz’s life and accomplishments BEFORE he was elected to the Senate!

The blackout on reporting of Cruz’s life story is most reprehensible when it’s done by FOX News and “conservative” talk-show hosts because these are the sources that Constitutional Liberty supporters turn to for accuracy. From Krauthammer (former Democrat and self-proclaimed “Constitutional Conservative”) to O’Reilly (the self-proclaimed “journalist”…NOT “commentator”!!!!), and the various radio talking heads, the viewer and listener would believe that, like Obama, Cruz has never done ANYTHING besides being a Senator for two years.

This article’s purpose is to provide an accurate picture of Ted Cruz’s background. Once you have FACTS regarding his background, we hope you will continue investigating him and the other candidates and then support the MOST Constitutionally Conservative candidate you can identify.


Ted Cruz’s Family Background

Father: Rafael Cruz ~ Born in Cuba. Fought against Batista’s cruel regime as a teenager, not realizing Castro was a communist; imprisoned and tortured by Batista’s regime; able to come to America in 1957 on a student visa with $100 sewn into his underwear. Worked as a dishwasher for 50 cents an hour and put himself through the University of Texas.

Concerned with the negative impact of the Carter administration policies on our country, Rafael Cruz became engaged in conservative politics as a grassroots activist during the 1980 Presidential Campaign of Ronald Reagan.

When his son Ted was a child growing up in Houston, Rafael would tell him, “When we faced oppression in Cuba, I had a place to flee to. If we lose our freedom here, where do we go?”

Ted Cruz was born Rafael Cruz in Canada, where his Cuban father and Irish-American mother had moved for the 1960s oil boom. Eleanor Darragh, Cruz’s mother, was a working-class Delaware native who studied math at Rice University. They had met at an oil exploration business in Texas.

[The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service has…weighed in on the issue, writing in November 2011 that people born to U.S. citizens in foreign countries “most likely” qualify as natural-born citizens.

“The weight of more recent federal cases, as well as the majority of scholarship on the subject, also indicates that the term ‘natural born citizen’ would most likely include, as well as native born citizens, those born abroad to U.S. citizen-parents, at least one of whom had previously resided in the United States, or those born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent who, prior to the birth, had met the requirements of federal law for physical presence in the country,” wrote Jack Maskell. ]

In high school [Ted] was part of a group sponsored by the Free Enterprise Institute that learned the Constitution by heart and traveled the state giving speeches on conservative ideas.

At Princeton he was a champion debater. From there he went to Harvard Law School. “Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant,” Prof. Alan Dershowitz told the National Review. Cruz was a founding editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review.

After law school, Cruz clerked for Judge J. Michael Luttig on the Fourth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals. In 1996, he became Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist’s first Hispanic clerk.

After a few years in private practice, Cruz met Josh Bolten, George W. Bush’s campaign policy director and another Princeton alum. He became a domestic policy adviser to Bush during the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign. There he met his wife, Heidi Nelson Cruz, another policy adviser.

When the election ended in a recount, they both went to Florida to work for Bush’s team, and the experience helped them both get jobs in government. Cruz served as assistant attorney general in the Justice Department and director of policy planning at the Federal Trade Commission.

In 2003, Cruz was appointed Texas Solicitor General {appointed by then Texas Attorney General, now Governor, Greg Abbott} and returned to Texas. In his five years in the post {heading up an office of 4000 people, including 700 lawyers, as the first Hispanic, the youngest and the longest-serving Solicitor General in Texas history}, he wrote 70 briefs to the Supreme Court and argued before the Court nine times {and he was also an adjunct professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin, from 2004 to 2009, teaching U.S. Supreme Court litigation ~ Barack Hussein Obama was a lecturer, meaning he READ to the class the lecture that the professor wrote…He did NOT teach, he merely read to a professor’s class.} Cruz was involved in numerous high-profile cases, including defending the Ten Commandments monument on the Texas State Capitol grounds, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools and the 2003 Texas redistricting plan.

|||Ted Cruz is definitely NOT another know-nothing, done-nothing Barack Hussein Obama!!!|||

Ted says he’s proudest of his work in Medillin v. Texas, in which the state fought the Bush administration over the execution of a Mexican citizen.

Cruz originally planned to run for Texas Attorney General in 2010, but changed his mind when his old boss decided to stay in the job.

Looking back at Ted Cruz’s 21-hour marathon speech against Obamacare

We watched about 13 hours of his speech and were highly impressed with the amount of substantive information and commentary it contained. The incessant ridicule of his reading “Green Eggs and Ham” to his young daughters at their bedtime is unforgivable.

If you did not have the opportunity to watch live, you can choose clips to watch at and then make your own decision as to whether or not Ted Cruz is a “wackobird” as he was labeled by John McCain.


Thank you for taking the time to read this article, and, if you believe it’s of value, please share it with people you know.
