Found it! Ted Cruz, Goldman Sachs, Bush Relationship

Look what I found on Wiki:

Cruz and his wife, Heidi Cruz (née Nelson), have two daughters. Cruz met his wife while working on the George W. Bush presidential campaign of 2000. Cruz's wife 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.[95]

It never sounded right from the start. I never liked Cruz. Cruz and his wife worked for the Bush In the 2000s. Another Bush term?

All you keep hearing is that Ted Cruz was Solicitor General of Texas. Where he went before the Supreme Court. Not to mention that he was the FIRST Hispanic in Texas and youngest person to hold that title. Again we hear that Rubio is going to be the next first Hispanic to be President? Watch out for Ted Cruz, I think this guy is all about climbing the ladder.

Look what else I just found:

In 1998, Cruz served as private counsel for Congressman John Boehner during Boehner's lawsuit against Congressman Jim McDermott for releasing a tape recording of a Boehner telephone conversation.[40]

Hate John Boehner? this guys has all the ties to the Leadership.

What they said in the comments - Doug Wead also worked for Bush. Also, Bush campaigned on good policies - such as a humble foreign policy. Guilt by association is garbage.

Doug Wead Also Worked For Bush..

And Ted Cruz will always be < Rand Paul. Rand Paul > Ted Cruz.. it will never change.

Guilt by association, one of the poorest logical fallicies

So I voted for Bush in 2000 and 2008 ( I believe a great man named Dr. Thomas Woods did too). If I was in politics and as active as I am now I would have likely campaigned for them. Now that I'm sold out to liberty I must not be "smart" enough to be eligible to run for any serious office.

Good to know.

Can we please hold people accountable for their record. I don't see many people pushing for Cruz to run for President here in any strong way. But give the man his do. He is championing issues on the national level, both Healthcare and 2A freedom. This is how you change hearts and minds to be sold out for your cause. Not by bashing them as they are leading the charge.

In terms of his wife:

All successful people in finance have likely been invited to CFR, nothing new. So you are now blacklisted for being invited. Really?

So everyone who works for Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan are the scum of the Earth. Good to know. Maybe we can extend that to other things like the Government, the Military, media, or anything else people don't like. After all, if you work for any of these institutions you must be a globalist scumbag.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Bane can u explain to me

Ted Cruz's stance on hemp?

You Stole My Comment

Ha, I was about to post the exact same thing. Great comment.

Self defeating perfectionism

Self defeating perfectionism will be the ruin of this Country. It is going to take everyone else down with it.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.



"Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."-Rothbard

Heidi Cruz worked for JP Morgan, GW Bush & Goldman Sachs

"vice president in the Private Wealth Management Group at Goldman Sachs, Texas"

"Ms. Cruz began her career as an investment banker with JPMorgan in New York"

"served in the Bush Administration as the economic director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council at the White House, advising the President and then-National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice."

"She also is a former director at the U.S. Treasury Department and was special policy assistant to Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick, then Chief U.S. international trade negotiator." (Robert B. Zoellick held a number of positions in the Bush White House, and was president of the World Bank Group from 2007 - 2012)



The reason people will vote for cruz

is the same reason the republican party will never be the liberty party. They put someone out front who is just like them to act like they are a liberty candidate, just to feed enough meat to liberty folks to keep them republicans.

If you all had any sense of self and liberty, you would never vote for the republican party after all the attrocities they have done in the past. Any "liberty" candidate with an R behind their name is nothing more than a shill for the corporate republican party.

The only true vote for a libertarian candidate, is for a libertarian candidate.

It is certain individuals ...

... who just happen to be in control of the GOP right now, who are the ones that are the problem.

We can all distinguish the various nuances between a Ron Paul, a Rand Paul, a John Boehner, a John McCain, etc.

I am a little suspicious of Cruz, but I will look at his voting record, and be happy when he makes public statements that get millions of people to re-think their ideas. If he turns out to be a wolf in sheep's clothing (or is that a sheep in wolf's clothing?), it will be found in his voting record.

I get the jist, but your wording is wrong.

Justin Amash, Thomas Massie, Mike Lee, Lee Bright, etc. all have R after their names. They are Liberty.

Vote the person, not the party. Vet ALL candidates, no matter what 'party' they decide to run.

My feelings concerning Cruz are known; he is not one that I will support.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Fact, thank you

Stereotyping and shooting yourself in the foot will never make this country better as a whole.

I agree and I'm happy to be

I agree and I'm happy to be the 50th upvote. An obvious giveaway for me was when he said how much he supports Gitmo staying open, in order to stop Islamic extremists.... Total neocon insider speak. And I think his wife is connected to the wonderful CFR...

More proof that Cruz is a fraud


"Setting aside the fact that District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) makes it crystal clear that there are, indeed, circumstances where it is constitutional to regulate guns, what is most remarkable is that Senator Cruz did, himself, make the case for regulating the very weapons Senator Feinstein seeks to ban in her proposed regulation.

Cruz offered that defense in the amicus curiae brief he prepared for the Supreme Court in the Heller case—a brief the Senator tells us makes him quite the expert on the subject of the 2nd Amendment."

Ron Swanson

Ted Cruz is a NeoCon

in sheep's clothing. He is completely in bed with the establishment. I would never vote for him. Ted Cruz = Republicans lose !

Ron Swanson

"I'm just gonna support CRUZ until...."

That is a frightening start to a sentence. It sounds like you've decided to pledge BLIND SUPPORT for someone you know little or nothing about.

That statement is what people said about OBAMA.

There are 2 types of people in the world:

Those who make decisions based on left-brain logical evidence, and

Those who make decisions based on right-brain FEELING.

We are EMOTIONAL beings. Emotion comes BUILT-IN. Logic does not. Most people just use emotion as a basis for their decisions without understanding what emotions are.

There are a couple HUNDRED MILLION AMERICANS qualified to represent the country - we don't need ANOTHER one that has a History of Alliance with the Bush Family and all the usual Establishment Suspects.

Whether Cruz is clean or not -- it's not worth the risk of yet ANOTHER wolf in sheep's clothing SPOON FED by the establishment.

So what. I will watch his actions. Right or wrong, at

least he has some nuts.


just to play devil's advocate...

Anyone who was involved in TX state govt worked for Bush!

Anyone who was involved in a Federal position after 2000 also worked for Bush!

Do we attack Doug Wead? I mean, perhaps he cannot be trusted no matter how liberty-minded he conveys himself to be. He STILL worked intimately in private, classified meetings w/ Bush. So Doug Wead needs to be outted as well?

I agree, that Cruz's history is shady. So let's just be vigilant and keep an eye on him. With Rand around, I don't see any purpose of giving any leadership to Cruz. He's OUR puppet for now :)

I dunno... I'm just going to support Cruz until I see a voting record that doesn't agree with me.

i.e. you'll vote cruz

just like you voted for Romney

Jackson County Georgia

War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong; and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses.
Thomas Jefferson

I voted GJ (i.e. you're wrong)

shows how much you know about me.

I'll back Cruz as long as he's fighting for the constitution. But I don't need Cruz as a leader of the liberty movement. Similarly, I back Mike Lee as well as DeMint but he quit.

In terms of president, honestly, I'd like to see Ron Paul make one last run. At the end of the day, I'm willing to compromise and eventually settle for Rand Paul--that's as far as I'll compromise.

I hate Obamacare more

than Sachs.
I am on his side( and Rands) on this issue.

Obamacare made possible by GOLDMAN SACHS

Now you have the truth.

Now I will ask for LOGIC please.

Stop supporting Bush-Family-Connected politicians.

Did you learn ANYTHING from HISTORY ? ?

So sick of people looking for the perfect candidate

You guys are always blasting everyone not perfect as heirs to the continuing tyranny of the govt. why don't you run then? So many here can judge from their computer and tell all of us how bad or corrupt everyone is. Well then run yourself and show us what the perfect candidate looks like. Otherwise judge people by their actions and what they say, speculating and alienating all those who show even moderate movement towards smaller govt in any way shape or form should be welcomed.

Many on here talk about conspiracies and govt intruders the easiest way to keep our general goals a pipe dream is by creating an environment where no one is satisfactory. Therefore ensuring our forces don't unify behind people that are better than the people that in power. You see what I am saying. If I was in the CIA watching these factions of Americans, I would simply feign interst and start threads talking about how this or that person is a commie or war mongering or owned by the rothchilds or whatever, and then, of course the people here would argue over the splinters instead of the trees. I just do t get it. Not saying you ha e to suck Cruz off but he's doing a better job than most and a better job than me cause I'm on the computer he's actually out there, I can't judge that too hard...

Cruz is outed and you whine

The average poster on this website would be a better candidate than Ted Cruz. But why is the average poster on this website never a choice for you? Because they didn't marry into Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs is why Ted Cruz is presented to you. Stop taking their bait.

Yes, Like Ron Paul

This Cruz guy gave me a bad

This Cruz guy gave me a bad felling ever since he was first pushed on this site and the pushing or trolling has got even worse now. just for the record I am 100% latino. Cruz is literally sleeping with the enemy! for the ones saying that just because cruz is married to a person who wants a new world order does not make him bad, then does that make him stupid? what liberty lover would marry a control new world order NAU freak like that?

Reason writers backing Rand over Cruz...

Anyone else notice how ever since the Cruz filibuster was started to be discussed, Reason quickly turned on his efforts and saying how he's wasting his time and wasting opportunities and what not? At the same time, downplaying Rand's involvement? They must really want Rand to be president, lol. They are very excited at the prospect of having a libertarian leaning president and want to blunt Cruz's inevitable surge in partisan popularity.

They're still talking very highly of Rand ALL THE TIME.

In all fairness...

In all fairness, the year 2000 was before Bush had gone Woodrow Wilson on us.

I'm still deeply skeptical of Cruz though.
