REMINDER – Ted Cruz Campaign Head Credits Psychological Operations As Primary Source of Voter Support…
We’re often asked why not just unmask candidate Ted Cruz and lay bare with all of the gathered research on his manipulative intents. The simplest answer can be found in the following analogy some might be familiar with:
…”have you ever tried to convince a 17-year-old teenager their boyfriend is wrong for them”?…
There are some things you make a decision not to do, choosing instead to watch people awaken on their own, at their own pace. Preferring to support them after the awakening.
Ted Cruz, as a known toxic entity, is one of those type of examples.
What Campaign Chief Jeff Roe describes in the recent Washington Post article is MK-Ultra type of psychological operations.
The objective goes hand-in-hand with the approach Senate Candidate Ted Cruz first deployed in his 2012 bid to become a U.S. Senator.
Many of us who supported Cruz at the time (2012) recognized the concerning aspect, but set it aside as an issue ‘for future reference’.
However, when you digest the approach, it accurately describes why “religion” is an essential element in his campaign. It also explains why Cruz can turn against someone like Sarah Palin, once her usefulness was exhausted – now, collaboratively with Glenn Beck, calling Sarah Palin “a clown”.
( Via Washington Post) […] Cruz has largely built his program out of his Houston headquarters, where a team of statisticians and behavioral psychologists who subscribe to the burgeoning practice of “psychographic targeting” built their own version of a Myers-Briggs personality test. The test data is supplemented by recent issue surveys, and together they are used to categorize supporters, who then receive specially tailored messages, phone calls and visits. Micro-targeting of voters has been around for well over a decade, but the Cruz operation has deepened the intensity of the effort and the use of psychological data.
[…] To build its data-gathering operation widely, the Cruz campaign hired Cambridge Analytica, a Massachusetts company reportedly owned in part by hedge fund executive Robert Mercer, who has given $11 million to a super PAC supporting Cruz. Cambridge, the U.S. affiliate of London-based behavioral research company SCL Group, has been paid more than $750,000 by the Cruz campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records.
To develop its psychographic models, Cambridge surveyed more than 150,000 households across the country and scored individuals using five basic traits: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. A top Cambridge official didn’t respond to a request for comment, but Cruz campaign officials said the company developed its correlations in part by using data from Facebook that included subscribers’ likes. That data helped make the Cambridge data particularly powerful, campaign officials said. (read more – strongly recommended )
One awakening story here – Another awakening story here.
Senator Ted Cruz took office in January of 2013. January through September of 2013 Cruz campaigned against Obamacare even forcing a government shutdown over the funding for it. It appeared he was doing the right thing – for the right reasons. However, he was getting massive intense backlash for a junior senator with only a few months on the job – soon the pressure became too much, he was islolated, ridiculed and marginalized into defeat. He collapsed – retreated and made a decision.
In October of 2013 Cruz made a strategic decision to get his political life kick-started and try to regain credibility and influence. To achieve this he partnered with the very political machine he previously opposed, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and then Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
McConnell directed Cruz to join the NRSC.
Through 2014 Cruz participated as Vice-Chair inside the NRSC as part of that alignment with the DC machine.
However, the DC machine was working on a very specific set of objectives which, while noted at the time, were not fully understood. They only became most visible as time provided a historical analysis.
While those corrupt machinations were going on, Senator Ted Cruz remained part of their overall program – working earnestly to assist the NRSC and simultaneously refusing to assist any political entity who was not in alignment with the overall objectives. In short, he sold his soul to McConnell Inc. around Christmas 2013.
AFTER, the scheme became toxicly visible -thanks to the Mississippi primary election of Thad Cochran/Chris McDaniel (June ’14)- Senator Cruz was at risk of losing all of his conservative bona-fides.
In June and July of 2014 Cruz made another strategic decision to ‘optically separate‘ himself from the McConnell led crew and the fiasco that was exploding inside the Mississippi election and the relationship to the NRSC and GOPe apparatus. It was a political decision, not based on principle but rather based entirely on saving his own political life.
At the same time, in order to control his exposure, Cruz joined forces with Glenn Beck around the summers’ “Humanitarian Crisis” and Unaccompanied Alien Children; all in June/July/August 2014.
However, even though he publicly separated himself from McConnell Inc., Cruz carried the same objectives of the overall 2013 plan forward. He did so behind the scenes, quietly invisible to all those not paying specific attention, so it would not draw as much notice.
You’ll note Senator Ted Cruz never once campaigned for a conservative challengers to incumbents in the 2014 mid-term campaign races – nor did he ever discuss the absence of a federal budget now the republicans were in control of both the House and the Senate.
While publicly railing against what he called the DC Cartel, a group he was bound to assist from his prior pledge to them, he worked to deliver their goals nonetheless.
This was ultimately evident in: ♦ Comprehensive Immigration reform and amnesty, The Gang of Eight Bill that did pass the Senate ♦ The Iran Deal (Corker-Cardin Amendment) he supported, and later in ♦ The TPA construct, which became votes, to insure TPP passage on behalf of the original team he pledged support to in 2013.
In each case candidate Cruz now attempts to distance his own culpability and ownership within it. However, he is only able to distract people (“GASLIGHTING”) to the extent that voters were not engaged in following the day-by-day scheme(s) as they unfolded.
In essence, Cruz is able to fool people in 2015 using the same approach he used in 2012 to get elected. To insure that deception he adds an element of cult-like affiliation via religion and now various psychological targeting.
To give you an idea how that manipulative intent reveals itself – here’s a video of senate candidate Cruz prior to becoming elected. Pay attention to the explanation(s); because since 2012 you’ve heard this same set of explanations used again on various points:
- 2012 Heidi Cruz joined Council on Foreign Relations to change it.
- 2013 Cruz joined National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee to change it.
- 2012 Cruz: I am the only candidate to stand up to….
- 2015 Cruz: I am the only candidate who has stood up to…..
Always avoiding the natural follow-up, “but what have you accomplished”?
- Joined forces with Mitch McConnell in October 2013
- Would not campaign for conservative challengers in 2013/2014
- Gave $200,000 from his Leadership PAC to the NRSC
- Advocated for 500,000 additional H1-B immigrant visas
- Ran to the Border with Glenn Beck for Illegal Aliens, Soccer Balls and Teddy Bears
- Supported Comprehensive Immigration Reform (along with Senator Rubio)
- Voted to support the Iran Deal – To Include Corker/Cardin Amendment (only Senator Tom Cotton voted against)
- Voted to support TPA – The gateway to Trans Pacific Trade Deal
“The Most Consistent Conservative”? Merely a ridiculous psy-ops talking point.
All recent examples.
January 2014 (Video) Just Hit Play
Now ask yourself, if Senator Cruz was actually an “outsider”, why would a Super-PAC being run by Mitch McConnell’s attorney, be supporting Ted Cruz?
Ted Cruz has branded himself as a “trustworthy conservative”. He stands in front of large posters with the word “TRUSTED” behind him. He is constantly sending out messaging that he is honest.
So, again, look at his campaign. This released Yesterday:
