Video – Senator Ted Cruz Demanding U.S. Take Syrian Refugees and Not Worry About Terrorist Embeds…

Someone in an earlier thread tried to claim that Candidate Ted Cruz was “out front” against the import of Syrian refugees.  Unfortunately, reality begs to differ.

Here’s video of Ted Cruz (from his own U-Tube channel) in 2014 specifically advocating for the direct import of additional Syrian refugees.  Additionally interesting, when confronted with the concern of terrorist embeds within the refugee population – Senator Ted Cruz was dismissive of the issue saying he was confident we have a way to insure that doesn’t happen:

Then again, this is “Senator” Ted Cruz, and not “Candidate” Ted Cruz – apparently those are two different people.

Here’s Ted Cruz yesterday:

…[…] And so President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s proposal to bring tens of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees to America is nothing short of lunacy. If you look at, at least one of these terrorists who attacked in Paris was a Syrian refugee. Of the Syrian refugees who have entered Europe, one estimate was that 77% of them are young men. That is a very unusual demographic for a refugee wave.

And indeed, the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has said it is clear that among those refugees are likely a significant number of ISIS terrorists entering Europe. It is inexplicable that President Obama would want to bring in refugees when this administration has no idea if the refugees they are bringing are ISIS terrorists…. (link) ~ Ted Cruz 11/16/15

Here’s another video in 2014 during a Senate Hearing addressing syrian refugees:

        I also realize that the sound bite is from 2014, and then the refugee number where in the hundred not thousand , or ten of thousand, or hundreds of thousands.

        And one hundred Christian family escaping the Islamic terror in the middle east is not a bad cause…

        Side note: Assad regime does not discriminate. the 18 million people currently being protected by Assad include a mix of Christian & Muslim alike. No discrimination.
        Its a very progressive place actually… So Christian and Muslim alike can seek protection in Syria in Assad protected cities. (18 million have chosen to do so)

          In 2014 the big deal was that the State Dept was denying visas to the Christian Syrian refugees. The Obama adm was saying no to the refugees when it first started & Christians were fleeing. I do believe that is the time frame of Cruz’s remarks.

          Like you said Mr Right it was low numbers but also it would have been easier to vet them because we could have brought them in from the areas were the Christians had fled & not the way they would do it today. ( For example: The Christians were going to the Kurdistan region when the ordeal at Sinjar Mountain was going on)

          I was reading an article today from August that said since 2014 the number of Syrian refugees that have been given visas from the State Dept. were 906 Muslims but only 28 Christians This just urps me when today Mr O said we can’t base it on religion. That’s what he’s been doing….shutting out the Christians.

            Here’s an article from The Hill Jan 2015 talking about Obama letting in 9000 Muslims but no Christians The last paragraph of the article said:

            With Christmas fresh in our minds, it is time for all people of good will to say to the Obama administration that telling Christians awaiting death that there is no room for them in the inn is not only unacceptable, it is also, to use President Obama’s own words, “not who we are.” This season, Christians need to make their voice heard. They should not act as the Jews did, waiting for a president who had no intention of doing anything, to do something.

            This just burns me up & I want to say really bad things about O but will try to contain myself & let God handle it.
            I really think all of this was the reason Cruz was standing up for the refugees. BTW I’m not a big Cruz supporter & not trying to take up for him but just saying this is what was going on at the time

          …the refugee number where in the hundred not thousand …..

          Actually the number of Muslims imported into the USA is around 1.6 Million Immigrants since 9/11.

          “…. , a large portion of this new wave of immigration comes from volatile countries such as Iraq, Iran, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. And don’t forget about Somalia, the source of much of our recent troubles with homegrown terror, particularly in the Minneapolis area…. When did the American people ever have the opportunity to give input through a transparent process to the radical transformation of America? How many Americans would have supported a decision post-9/11 to roughly double the rate of Islamic immigration?

          More from another source.
          “Immigrants from the Middle East are currently the fastest growing immigration demographic coming into the U.S., a recent report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. America in just three years imported more immigrants from the Middle East than from Mexico and Central America combined. But when it comes to allowing in Assyrian Christians and Yazidis who are fleeing for their lives from ISIS, the Obama administration says no….
          Of the tens of thousands of Yazidis uprooted from their homes, only 10 families have been granted asylum in the U.S.”

          http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/obama-refuses-to-allow-yazidi-christians-fleeing-isis-to-enter-united-states/

          And again the US Government Gaslights the American people by doing things that go against ALL common sense. A young fit muslim male with no women and children is NOT a refugee he is an invader. The Assyrian Christians and Yazidis families were the true refugees.

      Again…I ask…what has Trump ever done for conservatism before becoming a GOP presidential candidate and wanted your vote?

      When Cruz was defending liberty and fighting against the Washington cartel and exposing the democrats& RINOs….

      Trump was donating to democrats so he could get political favors and get rich while helping democrats& RINOs push their agenda.

      Carson was campaigning for a RINO in Louisiana, Bill Cassidy, over a teaparty vet.

      Rubio was pushing amnesty and cozying up with the GOP establishment.

      Fiorina and Jeb we’re supporting common core and the DREAM act.

      Rand was supporting McConnell for re-election.

        The constant harping and repetitive nature of you folks and the word “conservative” is hilarious. you are bastardizing it and rendering it meaningless.

        Trump holds the most, the ONLY actual Pro-American Citizen, conservative position on the most important issue facing us. ALL the others hold the position of the lobbyist, do not be fooled by ALL the Chambers of Commerce owned Pro-Amnesty pushers who use buzzwords like “conservative” in their attacks on Trump

        NONE of the other candidates will protect the citizenry from invading hordes of illegals, WHO WILL BE VOTING DEMOCRAT, by DEPORTING. ALL the others are in fact and in deed DESTROYING the constitution, they are the ones FAR from conservative AND Anti-American Citizen, but definately Pro CoC

        TRUMP is the ONLY candidate attempting to stop the impending permanent imported democrat voting majority by deporting the illegal democrat voting block.
        the positions of ALL the others will lead to that permanent democrat voting majority, the californiafication of the nation

        in addition to the prevention of a permanent democrat voting majority, he is also doing what is best for the country and its citizens.

        the positions of ALL the others is harmful to and is choosing foreign invaders over American citizens

        there is NOTHING more conservative than stopping a permanent democrat voting majority and doing whats best for the people and the country. By virtue of his position on these issues he Trumps all others conservatively.

        That’s kind of the point though. He hasn’t been involved in politics. He’s been running his businesses and having success in that arena. He can bring his successful ways to the presidency.

        You criticize him for not fighting for conservatives, but him running now is exactly that: joining the fight. I like Cruz, and yes he’s been a fighter. But concrete accomplishments of that fight haven’t materialized. That’s not his fault, he only has so much power. But again, all he’s been doing is “fighting”. Now Trump is too. I believe if either gets the nod, they both can translate that fighting to winning (policy accomplishments, leadership etc.). I think Trump has the greater shot at winning the general though. The best overall ticket for victory in the election as well as victory in office, is Trump/Cruz.

I wen’t through and found some old videos of him fighting..maybe not for what you call liberty, but for sound economics..he was being asked questions on how to solve economic problems back in 1991. We have had these politicians in for how long and look at the mess we have…I have watched Cruz as well and I won’t say what I think about what he says and does..but I do know that Trump was a lot more involved than you know and he wasn’t giving any more to democrats than republicans..in fact he gave more to republicans than democrats. They would ask for donations..he gave them, he has never denied that. As he said he was a businessman and had to deal with both parties. If you would do some research though you would find in his own words in videos that he talks about conservative views and why he was a republican.

      • Trump donated to BOTH Dems and GOP. Why make it just DEMS?

        People who haven’t followed him or politics for very long many not understand that the USA didn’t just wake up one day and decide to be litmus test “constitutional” focused or so demanding of literal “conservatism”.

        Just because he’s not spouting constitutional talking points doesn’t mean he hasn’t thought that way. And certainly as HE says has gotten older and wiser as he saw the outcomes of things.

        He’s been floating around politics making statements and interviews his whole life. He’s always said he believes in the principle of the Republican party.

        You can watch him here:

        1988 – Trump was introduced on CNN at the GOP convention as a CONSERVATIVE. He was a guest of Bush 41.

        1999 – He was on Meet The Press – the time he made that pro Choice statement that caused all the furor. He then went and spoke to doctors to understand better and changed his position.

        1991 He testified to Congress as an expert about the banking crisis.

        http://www.c-span.org/video/?c4544001/donald-trump-1991-house-hearing-us-economic-recovery-depression-vs-recession

        There are more examples but Donald Trump didn’t just pop out of the blue and decide to run for office. It’s been RUMORED for 25 years.

        And considering Cruz got ROLLED by Reid on TPA it’s a good thing he did.

        First when Ted was defending liberty and fighting against the Washington cartel, and di not accomplish much, it was his job to do so. We hired him and were paying him to do that job. At the time, Trump had a different job to do, and he was on the job, every single day, never missed a meeting. Now, what has Trump ever done for Conservatism? Just what is Conservatism these days? A bunch of people fighting tooth and nail to bring in a bunch of immigrants from every corner of the earth, through immigration or foreign worker visa’s which ultimately take jobs out of America to other countries. Is it Conservative to take up with Common Core and shove that crap down our kids throat? How about this budget that just passed….was that a Conservative thing to do? And the thing that got my started on this whole thing, is it Conservative for a group of Republican Senators to start up a non-profit for the express purposes of fighting against Conservative Candidates, especially one in particular who had helped them defeat Conservative candidates in years previous as the President of the Senate Committee?

        To me Conservative is sound economic policy, secure borders, a secure nation, a strong military…respect for law enforcement, all the things that make us a safe and secure nation that then allow us to do the things we need to do safely and securely. The so called Conservatives do not want to talk about some of those issues and would not have had it not been for Mr. Trump. Cruz said in 2011 that anchor babies was in the constitution, now that he perceives he can get votes for it, it miraculously disappeared out of the constitution. No one had mentioned sanctuary cities at all, except Trump. How about trade? They are eating out country bite by bite and these wonderful Conservatives have stood by and let it happen.

        And DO NOT accuse me of being a Democrat!! I was born a Republican. I worked for Goldwater before I was old enough to vote and I now shamefully admit that I voted for every single Republican President that ever ran. All that bull about, “give us the house and we will….and give us the senate and we will..” I have Rubio on video saying, no no, that was a lie, it never was true”. So maybe instead of asking what Trump has done FOR Conservatism you should ask those so called Conservatives what they have done TO it.

        Trump has done us a huge favor. He has shown light in places that have been so dark for so long mushrooms were growing. It hasn’t been pleasant, in fact it has been really hurtful and disappointing and I have cried myself to sleep many a night as pillar after pillar falls, and the last one was Rush Limbaugh…and that……that was really hard:((((( I think I’m done;/

        CRUZ Why I decided not to vote for him.
        Cruz has done one sleazy thing after another including using “an aggressive new voter-targeting operation, Cambridge Analytica – financially supported by reclusive hedge fund magnate and leading Republican donor Robert Mercer – is now using so-called “psychographic profiles” of US citizens in order to help win Cruz votes” according to the UK Guardian.

        Cruz doubles down on his lie about Dr Carson dropping out.
        (wwwDOT)cnn.com/2016/02/06/politics/ted-cruz-cnn-republican-debate/index.html#

        And it is not the first time the Carson stunt was pulled by the Cruz staff.
        http://stumpinfortrump.com/2016/02/08/cruz-campaign-managers-history-of-unethical-tactics-coming-to-light-has-pulled-this-stunt-before/

        Cruz sealed HIS records and did not give the same privacy to the serfs. The voting record of affiliations he used in his mailers are NOT open to the public and he LIED to intentionally SHAME and FRIGHTEN voters.

        “Also, the Iowa Secretary of State does not ‘distribute’ voter records. They are available for purchase for political purposes only, under Iowa Code.

        …“Today I was shown a piece of literature from the Cruz for President campaign that misrepresents the role of my office, and worse, misrepresents Iowa election law. Accusing citizens of Iowa of a “voting violation” based on Iowa Caucus participation, or lack thereof, is false representation of an official act. There is no such thing as an election violation related to frequency of voting.”

        Kinda debunks the whole public record meme the cruz enablers are pushing.

        One of the targeted voters of Ted Cruz’s campaign shaming letters in Iowa is a democrat and political scientist. He was VERY unhappy about the fraud and went to the New Yorker.

        TRUMP

        As an independent, I really could care less about the word ‘conservative’ Like every other word the PC Progressives touch it has been mangled out of recognition in order to manipulate the American citizen.

        I have one simple criteria at this point. I want an American Patriot and not a Globalist. Trump is the ONLY candidate who fits that description because he has a vested interest in the USA and in the middle class. I trust a vested interest a heck of a lot more than I trust fancy words from do nothing lawyers.

        I am not basing that on words, like with Mr Cruz and his sleaze, I am basing my judgment on actions.

        For example the Bush Family bought 300,000 Acres on the World’s Largest Aquifer, in Paraguay. Most of the elite are the same. They have packed up much of their wealth and moved it out of the USA.

        Statistics showed in 1990, before WTO was ratified, Foreign ownership of U.S. assets amounted to 33% of U.S. GDP. By 2002, just after Clinton left office this had increased to over 70% of U.S. GDP. source: (WWWDOT)fame.org/HTM/greg%20Pickup%201%2010%2003%20report.htm

        The wealth of America has been quietly sold off piece by piece. If you want a real eye opener look at the industries with over 50% foreign ownership,at Source Watch ( 31 October 2008) http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Foreign_ownership_of_U.S._corporations

        Those statistics should scare the crap out of any American because it means the American Elite are done with the USA and have moved on.

        So what about Trump?
        Trump is a builder. As one commenter here said Trump literally saved NYC from becoming another Detroit with his investment in the city. In his book Trump credits Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and his tough stance on crime. However you slice it Trump’s wealth is firmly anchored in the soil of the USA and it is not portable.

        Another book “Why We Want You to Be Rich: Two Men – One Message” by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki is aimed at the middle class. “Their concern is that the rich are getting richer but America is getting poorer…. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their countries, employers, or families to take care of them… They have joined forces to address these challenges, because they believe you cannot solve money problems with money. You can only solve money problems with financial education….”

        Again, for the voter. The take home is Trump wants a strong middle class because those are the people he makes his money from. No altruism just hard practical common sense on Donald Trumps part.

        OH, and many years ago Trump saved the New York Veterans Parade.

        Cruz is a parasite that has always lived off the backs of “We the People.” Trump paid protection money to Democrats so he could have their zoning boards approve his buildings. That is too much for you low intellect brain to comprehend. Trump created wealth by employing many people, DUH. How dense can you be?

        Cruz is a freshman senator with NO EXECUTIVE EXPERIENCE, unqualified for the position of POTUS. Trump is a well seasoned accomplished executive, a thinker, a problem solver.

        The race is over. Trump is the nominee. The egotistical, spoiled brat you are backing has no path to the nomination. Deal with it.

        Cruz is owned by the cartel, he never defended my liberty. He was willing to give up my 1st Amendment rights last week in Chicago.

The economics is also only one of many other concerns that would include social cohesion, school quality, government sustainability, and certainly not least the political consequences.

America was the safety relief valve for Europe. We are expected to be the safety relief valve for the ME in their own last ditch effort to save their own necks and maintain the status quo.

          How did “we” create the refugee problem? Explain to me how a single mom struggling paycheck to paycheck “created” the “refugee” problem. Explain to me how a college student created the refugee problem… and so on.

          Get real. This problem was manufactured deliberately by people who have everything to gain and won’t personally feel the pain for the policies they intend to inflict on the “proles”.

          The best thing that has happened out of all of this is that everyday Americans are now demanding their sovereignty back. It takes a long time to turn a battle ship around, even more so if it’s only being turned around under mutiny and not leadership.

          Similar to the Hispanic “refugees” coming into the USA–their countries are rich in land, natural resources and all kinds of opportunities. If their productive and responsible people stayed and worked on it, they could be pretty decent, but instead, they’re in El Norte working for our dead presidents and effectively aiding and abetting the corrupt governments and criminal cartels that control their home countries. I’ve met some legal workers from one of Mexico’s states who’ve packed up from jobs on a couple of occasions to go home as militiamen to kick cartels out of their areas.

        I have been stating much of the same, littlebytes. I believe Cruz is a good man who loves America and has tried over and over again to fight the wrongs of both the Obama administration and the establishment R’s.

        This video was indeed at a time when there were actual Christian refugees in need of help, and the numbers were low enough to check out each one. These are the people the US needs to be helping.
        Instead, Obama and the RINO’S worked hard to allow more and more illegals and refused help to the Christians who were/are being persecuted and murdered for their faith.

        I support a Trump nomination, but no one as yet to give a viable and honest reason for me not to support Ted Cruz.

        There have been numerous articles- even on this site as I have pointed out before- that praise Cruz and give him credit for fighting against the establishment as well as Obama. Many other sites as well as news publications have done the same. Some of these articles came after the video above.

        Cruz is not a snake, nor is he a liar. He was calling things as they were long before Trump decided to run.

He has surrounded himself with NeoCons and Globalists, his donors are of the same ilk, and frankly he scares me to death. Add to that the unusual theology he subscribes to and you have to take pause. I mean that sounds like an American version of Islam. It is downright frightening.

No one really loves this country just for the sake of loving this country. Or so it seems. It is so sad, because this truly was the best country that ever existed on this earth or ever will….and they are taking it away without ever firing a shot, simply because we go around, stuck in our little set of ideals, refusing to see a picture bigger than ourselves.

          You really should give examples of this agenda pushing, just making such a blank statement sounds almost trollish. For instance, he’s said numerous times that in a city run by Democrats in a state run by Democrats he has to give to them. Yet over years his giving was very evenly divided, but in the last 3 years, he’s given Dems almost nothing and quite a lot to Republicans. On the whole he is now ahead giving to Reps. Sure, they were RINOS since 95% of them are so giving to a Republican tends to = giving to a RINO.

          But then you didn’t like it that he gave to Dems. What is he supposed to do, give to libertarians? To obscure candidates for state offices? Because maybe Cruz argued before the Supreme Court for his office in the Texas government, but how does that prove anything about his conservativism? It proves he was doing a good job for Texas in cases that the state brought, not that he was out crusading on his own.

          And Trump got started in politics as far as I can see in 1980 working for Reagan’s campaign. He donated to the last 4 Rep. candidates for president and clearly wasn’t happy with them at all, as evidenced by his saying “I decided I had to do it myself.” That doesn’t sound like he was behind a RINO agenda, does it? He said in 1988 (while working on 41’s campaign) that he was conservative, it was hard in New York, but surprisingly enough he was a Republican. I think he changed his party affiliation once because he was disgusted, just as I and many others have done, and changed back. Machts nichts.

          As to agendas, you can go back years and see he has been quite consistent on trade and immigration. In fact he’s remarkably consistent.
          What are these nefarious agenda items that he pushed?

            By donating to liberals he helped them get elected and in result he helped them continue their liberal policies.

            Trump may have helped Reagan on his campaign but unlike Reagan he changed parties at least six times after. Believe it or not he has flip flopped on every issue since running for a GOP presidential candidate.

    Wilders is harsh, and I am in total agreement with him. He recommends the following:

    Stop cultural relativism. We need in our Constitutions an article that declares that we have one dominant culture based on Judaism, Christianity, and humanism.
    Stop pretending that Islam is a religion. Islam is NOT a religion. Islam is a totalitarian ideology and should be compared to communism and fascism.
    Because Islam is not a religion, the right to religious freedom does not apply to Islam.
    Stop the mass immigration from Muslim countries. Wilders proposes that NO Muslims should be allowed in.
    For those already in the west, expel them if they refuse to assimilate and instead insist on following their own Muslim laws and practices.
    Make non-western Immigrants sign a legally binding contract of assimilation and pledge of allegiance
    Stop the building of new mosques. (He doesn’t suggest removing existing mosques, but that would help too.)
    Close Islamic schools.
    Oust our current weak leaders.

    So how many of our 30+ million refugee can we send to europe? middle east ? africa ?

    none you say? then keep yours to yourself.

    It doesn’t make sense for us to send a kid from Guatemala to Finland… dont ask us to take islamic people from Syria, they belong in turkey, iran, or saudi arabia. Not in the the US.

      Tea party is defunct, passe, like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. I’m sick of both of their latino family claim-to-fame as “new” breed of GOP. They are opportunists who got to where they are using the latino namesake and 2008 tea party movement. Their actions prove if they are GOP leaders, who needs enemies. Fair is fair, if you call Trump a progressive, then you ought to be called the cuckold conservative – an awful sounding name but research tells me its a husband who is happy to let his wife philander with the enemy. Also known as a pimp too. There is no better way to say it. These are the sell outs who put Americans at risk just to get in the door and advance their careers.

      First of all, the Tea Party is a movement, not an organization.

      intellectual reasons.

      I could state my reasons for not supporting the other candidates,
      however, trust that you will do your own research and determine
      that for yourself. Its really easy.

      BTW, how does one determine that the refugees are
      Christian? Is there a way to verify that? And how are we going
      to pay for it? Citizen tax dollars or is Ted Cruz going to advocate
      the collection plate at all churches? You do know that the federal
      government is using our tax dollars to pay churches to house and
      care for these refugees; in particular, the Catholic and Lutheran
      churches I believe, and probably others as well.

      So, candidate Cruz is advocating using our tax dollars to take
      in supposed Christian Syrian refugees while our citizens don’t
      have jobs? Either Cruz is pandering or is not fiscally responsible
      with our tax dollars. Which is it?

    Refugee Resettlement Is Immoral

    snip

    But the goal of refugee assistance is not to make us feel good. It is to assist as many people as possible with the resources available. And resettling a relative handful of them here to help us bask in our own righteousness means we are sacrificing the much larger number who could have been helped with the same resources. The difference in cost is enormous.

    The Center for Immigration Studies, which I head, recently calculated that it costs twelve times as much to resettle a refugee in the United States as it does to care for the same refugee in a neighboring country in the Middle East. The five-year cost to American taxpayers of resettling a single Middle Eastern refugee in the United States is conservatively estimated to be more than $64,000, compared with U.N. figures that indicate it costs about $5,300 to provide for that same refugee for five years in his native region.

Then it was only a matter of regular, annual budget increases, mission-creep, development of parasitic VOLAGs, before it became yet another self-feeding, metastasizing growth in our vast, unconstitutional government apparatus. Yet another reason to hate “compassionate conservatism” ’cause that’s just BS for “uniparty progressive” (and yes, I know Reagan was POTUS in 1980–he was great in some ways, but in others, immigration in particular, was a precursor of GOPe).

    In the interest of honesty and fair play, Trump said we should take Syrian refugees in September:

I understand the confusion people feel because there isn’t an answer that we can give because it isn’t our problem. Syria needs to take care of its own business. So do all the refugee-causing countries in the world. At least Trump knows where to place blame.

    I for one am very happy to see any and all republicans stand up and demand this refugee resettlement be halted. I am not a fan of Cruz but that doesn’t mean I am unhappy with his comments as opportunistic as they may be.
    the main thing is that a lot of people are realizing what this resettlement is and see Obama out of control. They see Ryan as a quisling so that is good too.
    What is disappointing to me is that everyone is focused on “Syrian refugees”. When we have accepted hundreds of thousands of muslims and continue to accept them from many places that are just as radical as Syria. I would expect that these sly politicians will shut down the Syrian refugee process, but allow the rest of these muslims (and it is 98% muslims we are letting in) to keep coming.

    From Ann Corcoran at refugee resettlement watch:
    “I hope to get time today to post some other considerations—one that I want everyone to understand is that we have been admitting tens of thousands of Muslim refugees for years from Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Burma and Uzbekistan, just to name a few, and I am not confident they had any thorough screening either, especially the Somalis.
    And, please remember that the problems we (and France) are having with terrorists in the immigrant population is that most have been raised in the protective bosom of our generous social welfare systems. So the parents might have come in as (vetted) decent people, but their children became radicalized right here among us.
    All the vetting in the world isn’t going to save us from the toddlers coming in with Mom and Dad from Africa and the Middle East who thumb their noses at the ‘good life’ and become radicalized 20 years down the road. The only true solution is a complete moratorium on Muslim immigration. (See White House Petition). Will these governors have the will for that? I doubt it!]”

    It seems like all of Cruz’s speeches are very well crafted in legaleeze. They can be spun to take any meaning he wants at a later date based on what “I really said was”, “I only did that to expose ….”. If you truly have principles, you say what you mean and mean what you say. If you change your position say you were wrong and why.

      I support Trump. Yet, I understand he himself has changed his positions many times. I am not nor will I ever be a worshiper of Trump or any man/woman.

      I see it here though, and on other sites as well. If you have even the slightest opposition to something Trump said or has said, or if you defend Ted Cruz, you find yourself being scolded and scoffed at, called names and told to leave by other posters.

      That to me sounds just like Obama followers. You know, the ones who said he was their savior?

        This is a much needed wake up call to everyone–there is but one Savior and He is not Trump nor any politician, nor business person, nor military person. All human beings have feet of clay–we all fall short, including Trump. This video does appear to be taken out of context as it’s being used here. That’s not fair and doesn’t serve the goal of unvarnished truth that this site stands for.

        All the candidates, including Trump have waffled on this issue. The most important thing to consider, though, is which candidate is now most likely to do what is required to stop all illegal and even doubtful immigration into this country. We don’t need any more immigrants of any kind, until all our citizens who can work are working and making a reasonable wage they/we can live on. That is the only means to permanently dismantle the cancer of welfare in this nation and get the feds out of all of our lives. Trump has been leading the way on these issues, so he’s my preferred candidate. Cruz isn’t bad, he’s just not good enough-at least not yet.

          Wel said, JetBlack. Very well said.

          When people get so enamored with a person that they can no longer see their short comings or mistakes, or see the good in any other, it is called worship.

          I want Trump, even though I know he is most certainly not perfect…far from it. But I believe him when he says he wants to make America great again. He hasn’t done anything to prove that, but I do believe him. Mainly because he continues to speak a truth many were afraid to before.

          Trump will need very smart men to advise him. Very good men who also love America.

          Trashing good men like Cruz does nothing to benefit Trump. Nothing at all. And I agree with Jet and others here, this video is not being used here in honest context.

            Cruz recent actions, which he refuses to apologize for, tells me the contempt he holds for American Citizens.
            The VOTING VIOLATION mailer violated Iowa election laws and contained made up information about neighbors (LIBEL) plus threats. —

            The text reads:
            “You are receiving this election notice because of low expected voter turnout in your area. Your individual voting history as well as your neighbors’ are public record. Their scores are published below, and many of them will see your score as well. CAUCUS ON MONDAY TO IMPROVE YOUR SCORE and please encourage your neighbors to caucus as well. A follow-up notice may be issued following Monday’s caucuses”.

            This was NOT public record. Iowa’s secretary of state, Paul Pate, issued this statement condemning Cruz’s tactic:
            “Today I was shown a piece of literature from the Cruz for President campaign that misrepresents the role of my office, and worse, misrepresents Iowa election law. Accusing citizens of Iowa of a “voting violation” based on Iowa Caucus participation, or lack thereof, is false representation of an official act. There is no such thing as an election violation related to frequency of voting. Any insinuation or statement to the contrary is wrong and I believe it is not in keeping in the spirit of the Iowa Caucuses.
            Additionally, the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office never “grades” voters. Nor does the Secretary of State maintain records related to Iowa Caucus participation. Caucuses are organized and directed by the state political parties, not the Secretary of State, nor local elections officials. Also, the Iowa Secretary of State does not “distribute” voter records. They are available for purchase for political purposes only, under Iowa Code.”

            CRUZ, a LAWYER
            b> Broke the law in not reporting a loan from Goldman-Sachs
            Broke the law in not reporting a loan from Citibank Link

            The Citibank/Cruz/ Prince Alwaleed bin Talal connection.

            Fox is OWNED by foreigners who want open borders. Murdoch and his buddy Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal who is a major shareholder in Fox.

            Rupert Murdoch-Open Borders: The link is that the Rupert Murdoch (Chairman/CEO News Corp, Owner of Fox News) is co-chair of the open borders group, the Partnership for a New American Economy (PNAE).

            Murdoch has also stated: “We need to do away with the cap on H-1B visas, which is arbitrary and results in U.S. companies struggling to find the high-skill workers they need to continue growing. “ which is what Cruz has said (500% increase in H-1B visas. )

            The Stockholder in the Sand
            …. the enigmatic Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has very public holdings: he is the second-largest voting shareholder in News Corp., he owns Paris’s George V hotel and part of New York City’s Plaza hotel, he is a stockholder in Apple…a cell-phone addict who loves texting James Murdoch

            One of the largest shareholders in Citigroup, the second-largest voting shareholder in News Corporation after the Murdoch family, and with major stakes in dozens of other Western companies, he travels the globe….

            Over the last two decades, he has swooped in with tons of cash to aid various companies and superstars at their low points, including London’s Canary Wharf, Citigroup, EuroDisney, Apple, Donna Karan (the company), and Michael Jackson, to name but a few. On the day of our second meeting, in late April 2012, the prince was clutching a small string of prayer beads as he talked about News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch and Citigroup’s then C.E.O., Vikram Pandit.

            The ties between Alwaleed and Murdoch run deep. Alwaleed owns 56.2 million shares of Murdoch’s News Corporation; News Corporation, in turn, owns a 19.9 percent stake, worth around $150 million, in Rotana, Alwaleed’s privately held pan-Arab media conglomerate, based in Bahrain……

            ….He remains supportive of 40-year-old James. “James is not my partner only in News Corp.,” Alwaleed said. “He’s also my partner in the Rotana. . . . He’s a highly ethical, professional, decent man. I think of his honesty. I’m thinking of him. I know him very well.” They are texting pals, and James is on his speed dial…..

            When you say “Trashing good men like Cruz”. It makes me wonder if you have spent any
            time checking on his background? At first he appears to be good; but after another look
            you will find he does not have the United States best interest in mind. He called “Council on Foreign Affairs”a nest of snakes working to undermine our sovereignty. Guess who is an active member of “Council on Foreign Affairs”. Heidi Cruz; his wife, also not working for the best interest of our country. she took a temporary leave from her job at Goldman/Sachs . Such a good woman(sarcasm) served on the task force that wrote “Building a North American Community” you know what that is all about? More migrant workers/consider eliminating restrictions altogether on labor mobility for Canada and Mexico into United States. Of course they (Lie Teller Ted and Heidi Cruz)really want to have NAA. Just one big country with no borders. This is something the “so called elites”
            have been working on for years. I am 75 and Reagan talked some on it. To many details
            to put it all down.
            I also have doubts on his citizenship. Why? Because I have read two different times statements his father made about getting his papers in Canada along with his wife. (Ted Cruzs mother) I am not a lawyer but if she got her Canadian Papers with her husband then that means she gave up her American citizenship so her son is not a citizen. Also
            just another thing that bothers me is how could he run for our Senate and not give up
            his Canadian citizenship? Since when do we elect people from Canada to run our Country? He said he didn’t know? and just took care of it about 16months ago? after
            being elected in 2012. This man of big lies is credited with being smart? I don’t buy it.
            There is another thing that bugs me and I have to admit it isn’t just the lie teller that does it
            Any person elected to the senate/congress that runs for another office and collects his pay while doing so has no ethics/morals or no vision of the proper actions in life. If a person runs they should first resign. It is a big pet peeve of mine. It is stealing from our country. Taking money for a job you are not doing and if he was in private sector he would have to quit first.

            Liar is what he is in what he says and does. He sends emails stating he doesn’t take money from lobbyist but if you check you’ll find a list a mile long of lobbyist he takes money from. Then he claims to be an “outsider”. Not True! One of the super pacs he is getting money from is run by scummy Mitch McConnell’s lawyer. (His supposed enemy?) We don’t need to be detectives to figure the money deals and who owns who as he also gets money from oil/banking/etc. He is also tied to the Bush family. This connection goes way back and his wife also worked with them. Remember the vote recount? Guess who pushed for Roberts on the court? Ted the big LIE.

    Ted Cruz is an opportunist. It’s that simple. Everything he does is to that end.

    Now, you might say that same about Trump. But Trump has had 30 years to run for president and has not until now. If all Trump cared about was power, he could have run for president many times in the past, and he has not.

    As most here have concluded, after careful research, Trump is actually doing this because he wants to do some good for the country (and I’m sure being president would suit his ego nicely, no one is denying that).

    But Cruz? The more you look at him, the more shady he seems.

    In a sermon last year at an Irving, Texas, megachurch that helped elect Ted Cruz to the U.S. Senate, Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz indicated that his son was among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as “kings” to take control of all sectors of society, an agenda commonly referred to as the “Seven Mountains” mandate, and “bring the spoils of war to the priests”, thus helping to bring about a prophesied “great transfer of wealth”, from the “wicked” to righteous gentile believers.

      Don’t think US muslims are any different than the rest. They may be in the USA but they are not actually Americans who believe in our Constitution. Of course that is the whole point of flooding the USA with immigrants who dont give a rat’s behind about our laws or our Constitution.

      “…the results of polling data collected by Wenzel Strategies during October 22 to 26, 2012, from 600 US Muslims, indicate widespread support among rank and file American votaries of Islam for this fundamental rejection of freedom of expression, as guaranteed under the US Constitution….
      oblivious to US constitutional law, as opposed to Islam’s Sharia, a largely concordant 45% of respondents agreed “…that those who criticize or parody Islam in the U.S. should face criminal charges,” while 38% did not, and 17% were “unsure.” Moreover, fully 12% of this Muslim sample even admitted they believed in application of the draconian, Sharia-based punishment for the non-existent crime of “blasphemy” in the US code, answering affirmatively, “…that Americans who criticize or parody Islam should be put to death.”
      …. Additional confirmatory data revealed that nearly two-fifths (39%) agreed “…that Shariah law should be considered when adjudicating cases that involve Muslims, ” while nearly one-third (32%) of this American Muslim sample believed “…Shariah law should be the supreme law of the land in the US.”‘
