“Goldman is one of the biggest banks on Wall Street, and my criticism with Washington is they engage in crony capitalism,” he said. “They give favors to Wall Street and Big Business, and that’s why I’ve been an outspoken opponent of crony capitalism, taking on leaders in both parties.”
“I am unabashedly proud of everything about Heidi,” Cruz said in response to a point that he did not mention his wife’s connection to Goldman Sachs during his announcement speech, noting that he did “mention the fact that she had an incredibly successful business career.”
So far from being an outsider, he sounds eerily similar to Obama, who promised changed and delivered destruction.
Cruz is far from an outsider; his wife Heidi aside from being a Goldman Sachs Vice President also served as an economic advisor to the Bush Administration. She was also a member of CFR (council of foreign relations). Cruz, however, waited for his wife to leave this position before attacking CFR.
In 2011, he called the CFR “a pernicious nest of snakes” that is “working to undermine our sovereignty.” Why did he wait until his wife no longer worked there before attacking this insidious organization; could it be, because he is a double agent?
In 2011, one of Cruz’s campaign spokespersons stated that Heidi was “an expert on North American trade,” indicating that she is very knowledgeable on the subject of Elitist Global deals that favor one class(the super rich) and destroy the working class. NAFTA was one of the most destructive deals the government ever made against the American people.
There is a saying be careful what you wish for: your wish might actually come true, and then a bad dream turns into a living nightmare.
The following articles provide a plethora of information:
If a candidate is associated too closely with Wall Street, they look bad. This has been a growing trend over the last few elections — Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was chastised in 2008 for owning multiple homes and former governor Mitt Romney was deemed “unrelatable” in 2012 for being a multi-millionaire. But now we have a go-to name that symbolizes voters’ distrust of Wall Street and the filthy rich: Goldman Sachs. Yes, while the race tightens between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on the left and businessman Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on the right, Clinton and Cruz have both been criticized for their ties to Goldman. This is because the hardships endured by the middle class during the first sixteen years of the 21st century have rightfully made them Wall Street leery. It’s an idea that’s time has come — because of Goldman Sachs’ documented involvement with the 2008 financial crisis and multiple crises before. Full Story
Webster’s definition of a scoundrel is a dishonest or unscrupulous person, and Cruz has become quite adroit at saying one thing while his history shows him doing the other. Rather than the outsider he claims to be, Ted Cruz is the ultimate insider, former top Bush 41 policy aide and globalist, Ivy Leaguer, and establishment insider. Not many conservatives coming out of Princeton and Harvard. “I’m just sayin,’” Ted, as said in the debate.
You may recall in a recent Fox Business Network debate that Cruz, in Mr. Haney from Green Acres voice, declared to one of the moderators, “The opening question [moderator Jerry Seib] asked — would you bailout the big banks again — nobody gave you an answer to that. I will give you an answer — absolutely not.” What else would you expect a scoundrel to say who had secretly secured big sweetheart loans from Goldman and Citibank — by leveraging his retirement accounts –– to fund his 2012 U.S. Senate campaign. Loans which the Calgary Ted conveniently forgot to disclose to the Federal Election Commission. These are the very retirement accounts that he said he and his wife said he cashed in to fund his Senate race. In other words, Ted lied. Full Story
If Cruz follows the same path as Obama and Bush, then the game plan is to keep flooding the economy with hot money so that the ultra rich corporations can continue to lock in billions of dollars of profits. This means the stock market will continue to trend higher; the working class will continue to be punished, the middle class will soon become extinct and precious metals will have their down in the Sun. Use strong pullbacks to open positions in market leaders, key blue chip stocks and top dividend players. Some examples are NFLX, AMZN, RTN, GOOG, HRL, MCD, COST, etc.
