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.

Cruz Different than Bush & Boehner

Does anyone think for a second that Bush or Boehner would stand for 21 hours on their feet against Obamacare? There is some pain in the feet connected with that and I seriously doubt Bush or Boehner would endure it for such a cause. Would either Bush or Boehner come out so opposed to war with Syria as Ted Cruz has? Granted, Cruz has only been in the Senate for 9 months, but he has been on the right side so far in the Senate. He is looking good to me.

Many liberty minded people made the error of supporting Bush in 2000. Liberty was not nearly the issue it is today. I don't know much about Cruz serving as Boehner's attorney, but that's not a political position. Sounds like Cruz was simply performing a paid service 15 years ago. Gosh, can't we look at things as they are in present time? Fifteen to twenty years ago I was not nearly as liberty minded as I am today. Perhaps Ted Cruz wasn't either. People do change. Let's look at his record closer to the present.

"Does anyone think for a

"Does anyone think for a second that Bush or Boehner would stand for 21 hours on his feet against Obamacare?" My answer is "no". But do you think Bush or Boehner would stand for 21 hours on their feet to promote themselves disguised as a stand against a healthcare bill? I answer that question with a definitive "yes". And Cruz has not been on the right side of Syria. He's been more of a centrist. he's testing the political winds. He said we should go to the United Nations to determine if we should go to war with Syria. The United Nations??!!!??!!! That's internationalism and handing over your sovereignty to Europe China and Russia. I don't like that....

With regards to your last statement about looking at "present records".... That's a fair argument to an extent. But if you really believe that, then there really isn't anything special about Ron Paul. What made Ron Paul so incredible and fascinating is that he's hardly budged (except for maybe his once held belief in the death penalty) on any issues. Test your own theory on yourself right now... If Mitt Romney came out for a full audit of the Fed, an end to the drug war and was basically parroting everything RP has been saying for years... Would you ignore his past and say he's a changed man and vote for him? (Remember.... Romney ran on "changing his mind" about abortion)

Sorry, but Cruz is an opportunist...

Just sayin.

Restore the Foundations - "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"

Im not 100% sure about Cruz either....

... But even Ron Paul endorsed GW Bush during the 2000 election, so its not entirely fair. GW Bush lied in his campaign. He said humble foreign policy, no nation building, conservative domestic and fiscal policy. Who knew he would turn into such an Obama-esque campaign liar? Ron Paul said hes never met TX Gov Rick Perry, but mentioned in an interview that he knew GW Bush during the 2000 campaign and had met the Bush early on before he became full blown neocon. My opinion, without any facts to back it up, is that GW Bush is really just a guy who wanted to be President, due to wanting to fill his father's shoes. Heck, it was Jeb who was intended to be the pres candidate and GW came out of nowhere and decided to run. Anyway, I dont think its entirely fair to say Cruz is bad just because of this. Heck, he could have been just using the connnection to boost his own political future with an early intention of shaking up things, but simply couldnt do it without some backing by the elite ruling class... I could be wrong, but I just dont think its fair to say hes bad just on this.

Ron Paul 2012

Well said. I agree. We

Well said. I agree. We should give people a chance. That being said... We need to press Cruz on things that are important to us. Like ending the drug war, allowing gay marriage in states, less aggressive and non-interventionist foreign policy, auditing and/or ending the Fed, Gold standard, Raw Milk etc....
Otherwise he's just a vitriolic Republican cloned from the 90's and has nothing to do with libertarianism.

Realize what you are saying here

Ron Paul endorsed GW Bush in 2000 but GW Bush lied. So you want to repeat the Bush thing all over again?

I don't understand why it is so hard for people to learn the hard lessons. Politics has destroyed our Freedom. It is not individual candidates or their lies. It is a fundamentally broken process that the People don't really understand the bounds of capacity or what representation actually means.

How much investigatory research into an individual does it actually require to truly earn someone's trust, if trust is what is required for politics to work properly. Trust needs to be removed from the equation completely and the contractual bounded capacity needs to be understood as only to re-present what has been presented to them. This would mean no presentation by the delegate body of what to vote then the result would be to abstain. It should be as a discrete as a logical bit with no room to make the decision themselves on the final outcome.

Stupid is as stupid does. The American people are really stupid.

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

Ron Paul 2012

I don't like Cruz either. So

I don't like Cruz either. So he's against domestic spending and gun control... What Republican isn't? What I want to know....
Is he against the drug war? Is he a non-interventionist, Is he for allowing the states to decide their own marriage laws? Is he skeptical about climate change? Is he for eliminating entire departments?
The fact that his wife works for Goldman Sachs, he worked in the justice dept during the Bush years, went to Harvard and Princteon and apparently was the epitome of "elitist" at those schools (reportedly he wouldn't even talk to any graduate students if they didn't do their undergrad at either Harvard Princeton or Yale.) The guy talks to you as if he's reading a bedtime story to an 8 year old. Very patronizing.
He's a dangerous demagogue and a fraud.

Thanks for posting. People need to know this.

he's not an anti-interventionist...

even on bombing Syria he did not come out as a no to that. I don't really trust him either, and that was before I knew about the Bush connection. He is being used to split the conservative vote because a lot of neocon type conservatives are wary of Rand's foreign policy.

Bingo!

I agree with you. He's a neo-con dressed in tea-partier clothing.

Nuff said

There's more.

The Cruz Family was very busy in 2005.

Heidi Cruz worked for Merrill Lynch in 2005 and was one of the writers of the plan for the North American Union "Building a North American Community" http://www.cfr.org/canada/building-north-american-community/...

Also, Ted Cruz' father after being in the USA for decades, suddenly in the same year (2005) decides to become an American citizen? Was he trying to lay the groundwork for something?

Here's the rest from the CFR's website about Cruz's wife Heidi.

"HEIDI S. CRUZ is an energy investment banker with Merrill Lynch in Houston, Texas. She 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. Prior to government service, Ms. Cruz was an investment banker with J.P. Morgan in New York City." http://www.cfr.org/canada/building-north-american-community/...

At least she worked for Zoellick.

At least Zoellick was the crazy guy mocked for proposing the move to gold (or gold-price) backed currency. :/

Who is Zoellick?

Robert Zoellick was president of the World Bank until last year. You know, the same World Bank and IMF that was proposed and created at Bretton Woods,NH in 1944 by John Maynard Keynes. We are still operating on this global Keynesian monetary system. I do not believe Zoellick and the other criminal international bankers really want to move to gold. They are being forced by the rest of the world to move to gold, for example BRIC nations. Gold backed currency is the same scam they ran on us when the FED was introduce in 1913. The gold notes were backed by a 40% reserve to gold. And we see how that worked out. It took less then 20 years to fraudulently bankrupt our nation (1933) and conviscate our gold. They fraudulently took receivership of all the assets and We the People became their chattel!

Thanks

There's a PDF of the document on web site as well.
