A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:8
It is unfortunate that Christians have so little discernment, or even the desire to research the presidential candidates, and they continue to believe everything they spew. Sadly, this is why our country has ended up in such a disastrous state. Truly, the church is a very big part of the problem.
In an article by Coach Collins entitled, “Cruz Donors Accused of Money Laundering, Helping Tax Cheats, Pro-Amnesty Revisionist History,” Collins lists the nefarious donors to Cruz’s campaign and what they might want in return. Then he lists the sources for each of the donors. There is quite an amazing array of globalists who are behind Ted Cruz and buying his favors. Also see, In Accepting Campaign Cash, Cruz is Just Like Everyone Else, Which is Exactly the Problem.
Cruz on Trade Agreements
Cruz undoubtedly agrees with his friend, Henry Kissinger, on trade. (Kissinger was also part of the NAU Task Force like wife Heidi). On January 24, 2015, Cruz said that he is for “fast tracking” trade agreements and supports Obama doing same. Apparently Cruz cares little about American jobs, and even less about American sovereignty, but of course, this was before he decided to run for President.
In the above video, when the interviewer asks Cruz about fast track for NAFTA, (Heidi Cruz sat on a Council on Foreign Relations task force for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) up until 2011 when Ted announced he was running for the Senate!), Cruz answered, “I am a strong supporter of free trade. I think free trade benefits America. I think free trade produces jobs, and economic growth here at home. I think America prospers when we trade, when we open up new markets for our exports. I think it benefits manufacturers, it benefits farmers, it benefits ranchers to open up new markets. So this is one of the few areas where I think there’s some potential for bipartisan agreement, and Washington is working together to expand free trade and to open up new markets for manufacturers and farmers and ranchers.”
Obviously Mr. Cruz has not seen the decimation of ranchers, family farms, and manufacturing in America since the passing of NAFTA! The loss of middle class jobs is astronomical. And our trade deficit tells a whole different story than Cruz tells.
The interviewer then asked him if he would give TPA (fast track) to Obama, and Cruz answers, “I support Fast Track, yes.”
The entire purpose of fast-track is for Congress to surrender its power to the Executive for six years. Legislative concessions include: control over the content of legislation, the power to fully consider that legislation on the floor, the power to keep debate open until Senate cloture is invoked, and the constitutional requirement that treaties receive a two-thirds vote. Legislation cannot even be amended.
By contrast, without fast-track, Congress retains all of its legislative powers, individual members retain all of their procedural tools, and every single line, jot, and tittle of trade text is publicly available before any congressional action is taken. Link
Once Cruz decided he was running for president and found out that the American people did not even want this horrid new trade deal, he backtracked on everything and actually voted against fast tracking. Can you say flip-flop? Link, Link, Link
In a procedural vote on June 23, the Senate passed fast-track once again, 60-38. More power was handed over to this dictatorial Marxist Muslim in our White House.
The Cruz Family
Rafael Cruz and Eleanor Darragh Wilson, were married to others before they married in 1969. Ted Cruz, 44, has two half-sisters from his father’s earlier marriage. One, Miriam Cruz, died in 2011 at age 49, in Collingdale, Pa., a Philadelphia suburb. The medical examiner ruled it an accidental death from taking a combination of prescription medicines. The other half-sister, Roxana Cruz, 52, is a medical doctor, who practices as an internist in Greenville, Texas, 45 miles northeast of Dallas. She has no comment about Ted Cruz’s candidacy. Link Ted’s parents were divorced in 1997. Link
Cruz and the Phony Religious Right
It would be impossible for me to state all of Senator Cruz’s affiliations to the phony religious right without writing a book. So let’s just look at a few.
Senator Cruz excelled in school, both at Princeton and Harvard. Ever wonder why Ted Cruz had no problem with his wife, Heidi, spending five years at the Council on Foreign Relations helping to write the North American Union? Here’s the answer….
While at Princeton, Cruz came under the tutelage of Professor Robert George. George is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations who poses as a conservative Christian while serving common core loving, UNESCO, and the CFR’s agenda. He was also a signatory of the Manhattan Declaration. George met regularly with Cruz and advised him on his senior thesis, an analysis of the history and meaning of the 9th and 10th amendments. Link
Senator Cruz’s Close Ties to David Barton
The September 8, 2013 Politico story from Stephanie Simon documented U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’ very close ties to pseudo-historian David Barton (one of the more influential national middle-aged leaders on the Christian right). Let’s take a quick look at David Barton.
It is important that we understand just exactly what Barton, Rafael Cruz, and other so-called evangelicals who support Ted Cruz, actually believe. Why? Because their doctrine is considered wholly unorthodox, and it is just a bit too close to Islam for me.
Barton is an informal advisor to neo-cons, Mike Huckabee who had endorsed fellow neo-con, and Trotskyite, Lamar Alexander, for his third term in the Senate, and fellow pro-Dominionist (via her close affiliations, with Francis Schaeffer and John Eidsmoe Link) Michele Bachmann. Huckabee also believes Americans should be forced at gunpoint to listen to David Barton. He was joking, but…..
Barton is also an advisor to, Third Waver, and Alvin and Heidi Toffler supporter, Newt Gingrich. Link (Remember Gingrich thinks we need to get rid of the Constitution, and property rights are passé.) Huckabee, Barton, and Ted Cruz are all for a Constitutional Convention. They’re in good company with George Soros’s leftist groups. Link
Barton’s endorsement of Cruz was widely seen as a big boost for his upstart campaign to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate. He also campaigned for Florida Senator Marco Rubio in 2010 and has long backed Texas Governor Rick Perry. Perry’s ties to the Dominionist, New Apostolic Reform were evident at his August, 2011 prayer fest, (organized by American Family Association, who are also Dominionists), prior to his announcement as a presidential candidate. Link
Mr. Barton, whose academic degree is in Christian Education from Oral Roberts University, has been labeled a biased amateur who cherry-picks quotes from history and the Bible. Both secular critics and Christian scholars have denounced Barton as a fraud who manipulates and misrepresents history to serve his political goals. In his book, The Jefferson Lies, he portrayed Jefferson as an orthodox Christian. Barton is considered a fraudulent historian and has been called out by actual conservative Christians. Link
In a shocking interview with Jon Stewart, in May of 2011, Barton is totally comfortable with Shariah law and claims it is compatible with our Constitution. (Scroll to 8:20 in the video)
On November, 2013, David Barton sat in for Glenn Beck on his program. He spent the entire hour on the Constitution, and on an Article V call for a convention. Glenn Beck and Ted Cruz are also both supporting a Constitutional Convention.
It is not surprising that David Barton is a Cruz supporter, as he and Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, are dominionists who believe in the Seven Mountains mandate. This fits well with both Barton’s and Cruz’s belief systems wherein a Christian theocracy should rule. Here and here are definitions of Dominionism/Reconstructionism (D/R).
D/Rs wants a theocracy, leaders for America who are Christian Dominionists. They also want a theonomy. Critics see theonomy as a significant form of Dominion theology, which they define as a type of theocracy. Theonomy posits that the Biblical Law is applicable to civil law, and theonomists propose Biblical law as the standard by which the laws of nations may be measured, and to which they ought to be conformed. They also believe in the 613 Old Testament Mosaic Laws, other than a few dietary restrictions. They even believe in Old Testament stoning of law breakers/sinners, which Biblical Israel did very rarely. Reconstructionists provide the most enthusiastic constituency for stoning since the Taliban seized Kabul. Denial of future repentance and faith is quite obvious, which is what both Old and New Testaments teach.
For an overview of what D/R leaders like Dr. Gary North believe and have written, see part 21 of Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right.
Pastor Kevin Swanson Wants to Execute Homosexuals
From Coach Collins recent article, “Ted Cruz Will Have to Answer For His Own Rev. Wright, And Dodging the Question Won’t Cut It”…
On Friday, November 6, 2015 Cruz attended a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa, hosted by a Colorado pastor who frequently calls for putting gay people to death. The Pastor, Kevin Swanson, is well known for calling for Christians to execute homosexuals just the same as the Islamists do and Hitler’s Nazi Germany did. Pastor Swanson has accused the Catholic Church of wanting to “legitimize” child molestation saying, “The Catholic Church will never be able to legitimize pederasty.”
Cruz knew exactly who Pastor Swanson is and what he is all about, but denied any knowledge of the man’s past statements. Swanson has been calling for the execution of gays since as far back as July of 2012. Just as Westboro Baptist Church members do, Swanson believes, “Christians should hold up signs at gay weddings holding up the Leviticus verse, instructing the faithful to put gays to death because what they do is an abomination.” This is exactly the type of talk we hear from Islamists: “Kill those we don’t like or you are now people we don’t like.” Catholics do not believe in murdering homosexuals so this explains why Pastor Swanson hates the Catholic Church.
I don’t know any orthodox church or synagogue who believe in killing homosexuals. As for the church, this is denying the shed blood of Christ on the cross for our sins. We have until our last breath to repent of our sins, believe in the Lord God, and receive saving grace.
Cruz Supporter, Farris Wilks
As 2015 came to a close, Ted Cruz met with hundreds of prominent faith leaders (including David Barton, James Robison, and John Hagee) at the ranch of Texas tycoon, Farris Wilks. Wilks supports most of the phony rightwing groups in the secretive Council for National Policy. Farris and his brother Dan have donated $15 million to a super PAC which supports Cruz. Cameras and recording devices were not allowed at the Wilks ranch when Cruz spoke, so only God and attendees know what was said at the event. However, one might be able to get an idea of how Cruz views God’s role in American politics by reviewing his associations.
False teachers are an abomination and a stench in the nostrils of Jehovah God. They are anathema. They deny the Cross of Christ and repentance.
In the next article on Senator Cruz, we’ll look at where he stands on many other issues and then delve into his father’s religious affiliations.
