When I helped Ted get elected to Senate, I was convinced he was a principled, Christian conservative unlike any we had seen for ages. With his outright evasion over his citizenship and eligibility, i put down my cup of Cruz Kool-Aid and wanted to find the facts. There are enough that I feel it necessary to begin organizing them for reference.
If you have any suggestions/additions - please send them by using the CONTACT page, at the top of this blog. (Please, no opinion pieces, attacks on Ted's family or religion or personality.)

***BREAKING**** CNN: Princeton Debate Member says Cruz claimed he was a dual citizen.
In 2014, Ted Cruz claimed that did not know he still had Canadian citizenship, and formally revoked it.
At right is a clip from a New Hampshire Cruz rally where a 17 year old, first time voter asked how it was possible that Cruz did not know this all along, especially since he was a constitutional expert. Cruz refused to answer the question, instead claiming that contrary to multiple Supreme Court cases and writings of the founders, "it has always been that way."
Even when CNN asks Ted to cite the specific legal argument - Cruz simply says "the Constitution is very clear" - something even legal scholars supporting Cruz's position overwhelmingly deny.
However, Michael Lubetsky, a Canadian who was on the Princeton debate team with Cruz, has come forward saying that not only did Cruz know, he talked about it often.

And the ultimate hypocrisy for someone who is a beneficiary of "birth right" citizenship. In 2011 he claims he is for it and it won't help to change it. Now he claims he was ALWAYS for it....INCLUDING in 2011!!

Campaign Lies, Deceptions and Privacy Invasion
Few Cruz supporters - or Texans - know that Ted began his Presidential campaign THREE MONTHS into taking his Senate seat a a first time congressmen. He disingenuously denied he had already begun running even while spending an inordinate amount of time and money in primary states.
Ted Cruz has taken a book from Adolph Hitler and Barak Obama in taking a big lie and proclaiming it so loudly, that no one would suspect someone like him would possibly make it. For example, He says in a fund raising letter that he "will never get" nor does he want "money from D.C. lobbyists or the special interest billionaires." His own filings tell a completely different story. (h/t The Gateway Pundit)
THIS WON'T END BECAUSE OF WHO CRUZ HIRED
THE GOLDMAN SACHS AND CITIBANK LOAN LIES
he’s owned by Goldman Sachs." The CrowdPAC chart to the right shows that not only is he the largest recipient of Wall Street donations, he has MORE than Hillary. Suddenly those undisclosed loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank take on a new light. Two big reasons why this is damning:
- The law is clear. So either Cruz can't manage accurate reporting (something he has derided political opponents and the White House about), or he was lying.
- He was already caught lying about this. Cruz had an eloquent story he originally told:
“Sweetheart, I’d like us to liquidate our entire net worth, liquid net worth, and put it into the campaign,” he says he told his wife, Heidi, who readily agreed.The truth is "liquidate" to Ted was to get a sweetheart loan from his wife's employer and the CAMPAIGN paid it back. The Cruz's were never out a penny. And it was a Hillary-like "we were broke" moment.
Getting confirmation from the FEC of these violations, a former Cruz supporter jumped to Trump after hearing Ted blatantly lie about the facts.. A Must Read with FEC documentation.

“One thing is now clear — while Senator Cruz may preach against the ‘Washington Cartel,’ he will still adopt, or at least not condemn, Cartel tactics for his own political gain,” Carson wrote.
