Letter: Cruz control

Danny Baker writes in Thursday's Miner [Nov. 14, "Who's the real subversive here?"] that Ted Cruz should be considered a communist because he was born in Canada and his father was a Cuban.

Ted Cruz was born in Canada, but he was also an American citizen. This is very common to have dual citizenship, much like John McCain, who was born in the Panama Canal zone.

This continual spouting of misinformation (or dare I say lies) has got to stop. Before you go badmouthing some politician who doesn't fit your agenda, get your facts straight. From what we are seeing today, I think it was Mr. Obama who lied to us, not Ted Cruz!

“and bobber…even TIME MAGAZINE is admitting that obamacare is and will be a huge failure.”

TIME Magazine also stated that Social Security would cause the economic collapse of our nation as would Medicare. Two for two ain’t all that great. So I would not be fast to use TIME as a source.

“why is it so hard for you to admit that this whole thing is a laughable flop failure?”

How can the ACA be a “flop failure” when it has yet to be fully implemented? The portions that are currently in effect are meeting with major kudos from those receiving benefits from it. I know I am pleased with the changes that have impacted me so far.

The only problems are with the website and that is being repaired – albeit too slowly. And what parts of the ACA have caused a negative impact in your life? Yeah – that’s what I thought.

“He had everything to do with the implementation of the web site.”

So in that case then he also had "everything" to do with eliminating Bin Laden. You can't make up the rules as you go to fit your agenda.

jj you are right, that was an error on my part. still 600 million is astronomical for a website.


and bobber. i know that he didnt write the website, but i would assume that since this whole ACA thing is obamas presidential baby, that he would be able to oversee something. But since he has failed horribly at everything else, why would we expect different? I mean even TIME MAGAZINE is admitting that obamacare is and will be a huge failure. Not to mention almost every sane polititian, left and right has stated that a ton of things with obamacare are proving to be lies. why is it so hard for you to admit that this whole thing is a laughable flop failure? everyone knows it, and youre the only one who cant admit it.

“He had everything to do with the implementation of the web site.”

Not only is that the most ridiculous comment of the week, it is without a doubt the funniest in a very long time.

"Due to the fear of these two Christians by the liberals"..
I have always been under the impression that liberals were Christians too. Please, tell me more!

"you do know the president had absolutely nothing to with the “building” of the ACA website? Oh wait – you actually do believe the president designed, wrote the code and implemented the website? "

He had everything to do with the implementation of the web site. His political appointee, Sibelius, was responsible for over site and she reports directly to Obama. The entire ACA is on Obama's head. The agencies that write the regulations and deal with the implementation of the law are all headed by appointees that report to him.

Bob Moore:

I bet you sure wish Ted Cruz of 19 hour filibuster fame had succeeded in saving us from the disaster of obamacare and all the myriad of lies (still coming, another one today) that will bring down obama's presidency but more than that, probably will bring down liberalism overall for a generation or two.

He overwrote his own law AGAIN today trying to desperately find a way to keep the country from knowing 75 to 100 million more will lose coverage in 2014.

But you still trust him, right? Hahahaha!

Nominate Cruz for president? Unless I missed a BIG chunk of news all this arguing is.....speculation.

but when did facts get in the way of a good liberal tirade?

Poor Linda felt Obama was illegitimate to run for president with no proof of him being born in Kenya, all the proof in the world he was born in USA soil, but defends her Canadian born, undisputed by Cruz himself as fit to run for president, how contradictory! -) Same birth parent situation, one a US citizen, one not, only difference it seems is Obama had some black blood/genes Cruz has some brown/Hispanic! Guess her approval depends on genetics and party affiliation has to be republican!

“Actually bobber, it has not been determined definitively if Ted Cruz can run for president…”

Actually, teeje, Canada (aka Rafael) Ted’s right to run for president has long been determined. Would you enlighten us why YOU think he is ineligible. And please – none of the “born outside of the U.S.” or “his daddy is a Cuban Communist” nonsense. Both are true, however neither precludes his right to seek the presidency. I might suggest you read “Trip to Birtherville” blog before responding.

“Also, im sure you will harp on this whole ‘he is a sleaze because he wasted 24 billion dollars’…”

Yes, I will always point out that Canada (aka Rafael) Ted is a disingenuous sleaze who wasted $24 billion of our dollars on ridiculous nonsense while shoving over a million dollars in his pockets.

“…hahaha how about 600+ billion dollars on a simple website that he failed to build??”

Hahahahaha, you do know the president had absolutely nothing to with the “building” of the ACA website? Oh wait – you actually do believe the president designed, wrote the code and implemented the website?

TJ - it's 600 million...with an M. 600 billion would be an astronomical number. That's literally impossible to spend on a website. The entire program doesn't cost that much. . It's half as much as was spent on the entire Iraq war. Come on. We don't have to make things up to bash the president. His record can be bashed on actual truth too.

"Uh, what agenda are you speaking about?"

Uh, a wolf in sheep's clothing is still a wolf, so a communist blending in with his surroundings is still a communist.

"As far as Ted Cruz's Christian life, you can see it by his words, actions, deeds, doing research on what he has done in and with his life."

So you believe everything you hear and read? You said the same thing about Myth and we see where that got you. I would think you would find better things to do with you in your twilight years.

Actually bobber, it has not been determined definitively if Ted Cruz can run for president or not because the term natural born citizen is not defined by the constitution. I would say that he is not, and that is why i have not said that he should run. Also, im sure you will harp on this whole "he is a sleaze because he wasted 24 billion dollars" so ill just say this, or ask rather, are you saying that your lord obama hasnt wasted money??? hahaha how about 600+ billion dollars on a simple website that he failed to build?? thats just one thing that that idiot has wasted billions on and you refuse to acknowledge his stupidity!!! oh my god the hypocrisy and bias filled blabber of the liberals never ceases to amaze me. feel silly yet? since im not an obama worshiping sheep..no, no i dont.

“Anny.... i have never said that he should be president, because i know that he is not eligible.”

Sorry, kid, as usual you are wrong.

“Whats more interesting to me is how you degradingly and ironically speak as an authority on the subject…”

Nope, I have never done that. What I have done is show the hypocrisy of the birther loons who accept the precepts of Canada (aka Rafael) Ted’s qualifications that fly in direct opposition to their five year-plus rants about Obama.

“…and yet do not even know the minimum qualifications to be president, even when a ‘kid like me is aware if them.”

And yet a kid like you posts the nonsensical statement shown in paragraph one above indicating you don’t know the first ting about presidential qualifications. Feel silly yet?

Let me give you a hint – Canada (aka Rafael) Ted is fully qualified to run for president – even though he is a sleaze who shoved over a million dollars in his pockets while costing us $24 billion dollars because he’s a buffoon.

Another thought.

Uh, what agenda are you speaking about?

People who are truly "saved" immediately have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in their spirits and it shows in the fruit produced in their lives.

Ted Cruz's Father is a fiery Baptist Pastor. He most definitely has the Holy Spirit in him. But look up some of his speeches and sermons for yourself and watch him. Then you be the judge.

As far as Ted Cruz's Christian life, you can see it by his words, actions, deeds, doing research on what he has done in and with his life.

As crap is slung on him as it was/is on Sarah Palin due to the terrible fear of these two Christians by liberals,they let it roll off their backs like ducks. They do not respond in kind as obama does.

"Ted Cruz is a devout Christian who practices his Christianity daily."

It's statements like this that cause you to have no credibility. How could you possibly know this? I'll say it again, CC's Cuban father being a born again Christian was more of a timely convenience to fit his agenda.

"What the heck, you might even get saved listening."

Saved from what? Again, I am not perplexed by such mythical campfire stories that seem to be only something you preach rather than practiced as obvious with your repeated "false statements".

“Ted Cruz is a devout Christian who practices his Christianity daily.”

And this is important because…? What is odd is how Canada (aka Rafael) Ted does not actually appear to have listened to the words of Jesus nor does he practice the teaching of his Christian God. Just another sanctimonious, overtly-pious hypocrite.

”I was touched to see a picture of Ted Cruz…”

I was touched to see Canada (aka Rafael) Ted shoving over a million dollars in his pocket after costing the taxpayers of our nation $24 billion because of utter ignorance.

And please, Linda, never forget that this phony you would support for president does not meet your standards – as spewed for the past five-plus year – to be president. He is a foreign born (Canada, complete with Canadian birth certificate) son of a Cuban Communist.

“He's been jailed for one year for nothing except loving Christ….”

Which is illegal in Iran. And you have espoused here that every Muslim in the United should be jailed for loving Allah. See a parallel? See the hypocrisy?

Anny....yes, that is what im saying for one, and for two, i have never said that he should be president, because i know that he is not eligible. Whats more interesting to me is how you degradingly and ironically speak as an authority on the subject and yet do not even know the minimum qualifications to be president, even when a "kid" like me is aware if them.

I wonder what the Birther Queen will say about a foreign born Canadian running for president, will she file law suits like she did against Obama with no proof of his Kenyan birth since Cruz does not deny or dispute his Canadian birth? No he is maybe got a thing going for him the birther's will let him slide for, he has no black blood, Cuban yes, daddy was a communist who fought with Castro, but maybe they will let that slide to!

Another thought:

Ted Cruz is a devout Christian who practices his Christianity daily. His Father had been Catholic, converted to the Baptist religion and became a Baptist pastor. Try listening to his sermons on line and I'm sure you will realize there's nothing phony about the Cruz family's religion.

What the heck, you might even get saved listening.

I was touched to see a picture of Ted Cruz, after his 19 hour filibuster, on his knees with others praying for the release of the Christian minister wrongly jailed in Iran.

And now with obama's new "in bed with the enemy" Iran deal, the pastor is still there and probably will be for a long, long time since obama did not include his release. He's been jailed for one year for nothing except loving Christ and visiting family.

"And hey, I'll take a God fearing America loving Cuban/Irish Baptist anyday over an irish/arab homosexual America hating, muslim sympathizer communist."

In your own words "NEWS FLASH"!
Well it appears the irish/arab homosexual America hating, muslim sympathizer communist poll numbers have risen since he was able to secure an agreement with Iran.

“im not sure if you are aware of the minimum qualifications to be president, but one of them is to be a natural born citizen.”

So you are now saying that Canada (aka Rafael) Ted is NOT qualified to run for president?


”Accusing Cruz of $24 billion wasted is ignoring truth w/the same old koolaid drinking eyes.”

The “truth” is that Canada (aka Rafaeel) Ted wasted $24 billion of our tax dollars because of his stupid actions while shoving over a million dollars in his pockets! Why do you keep defending this sleaze – as a conservative one would think you would be outraged at the loss of $24 billion for nothing.

“And hey, I'll take a God fearing America loving Cuban/Irish Baptist anyday over an irish/arab homosexual America hating, muslim sympathizer communist.’

Interesting that you keep posting the same falsehoods week in and week out – Obama is not an Arab by any degree, he is not a homosexual, and he is not a communist nor is he a Muslim sympathizer. I fear you are going to have a whole lot to answer for at the end of days when it comes to bearing false witness.

Accusing Cruz of $24 billion wasted is ignoring truth w/the same old koolaid drinking eyes. Try that real elephant in the room, obamacare.

Over $600 million so far with double/triple that needed to finish. The CBO says TWO TRILLION and more in future decades.

But $2 trillion wouldn’t be the total but instead the "gross cost of coverage provisions.” Total costs would be a third higher (CBO's preliminary scoring)— making the total price-tag between $2.5 and $3 trillion over the bill’s real first decade.

How to pay for this? According to the CBO, by diverting $1.1 TRILLION AWAY FROM ALREADY BARELY-SOLVENT MEDICARE and spending it on Obamacare, and by increasing taxes on the American people by over $1 trillion. Remember, a billion is like from here to Paris, a trillion is like from here to the moon. But it's only our money. Who cares.

But keep drinking your koolaid. I wouldn't want to face this reality either if I were a blinded obamafollower.

And hey, I'll take a God fearing America loving Cuban/Irish Baptist anyday over an irish/arab homosexual America hating, muslim sympathizer communist.

"son of a Cuban Communist being touted as the darling of the right"

The righties and tea party fail to understand that the fact that the Cuban is a born again Christian was more of a timely convenience to fit his agenda.

""More important to me than his birth status – which has no bearing on his right to run for president""

Umm...im not sure if you are aware of the minimum qualifications to be president, but one of them is to be a natural born citizen.

Also, thanks for not addressing all of the facts i posted, because i have to revise that the healthcare website is not 60% complete. Its actually 60% unfinished. Haha glad i got that cleared.
