Why Cruz lost New York's Primaries - and the real story behind him
At this point, it should be no surprise to anyone following this election closely why Cruz fared so poorly in New York's primary election, losing the chance to win any delegates at all, with Trump raking in 89 delegates to Kasich's lonely 3. Despite that the majority of New Yorkers are not exactly keen on Ted Cruz after the insulting comments he made about their 'values', he has major support from the Big Apple's fat cats, multinational and globalist circles, which nevertheless, were not able to mobilize the voting base in support of his potentially waning campaign.
The results of the New York primaries, for both Democrats and Republicans, have been tallied up after yesterday's vote. The undoubted favorite - multi-billionaire Donald Trump, a native of this city, where the famous Trump Tower is erected, was able to clinch the victory with just over 60% of the vote, delivering to him nearly all the 92 available delegates which the state had up for grabs. His closest competitor on the national race - Ted Cruz - came in third and earning a humiliating zero delegates in this race, considered one of the most important in the country. This is not surprising: Cruz made a serious faux pas earlier in April in an attempt to undermine Trump, with the expression "New York values" used in the pejorative sense, which the ever-proud New Yorkers would neither forgive nor forget when they went to the polls on Tuesday.
But Cruz may have in fact, made a calculated move - why Cruz sacrificed New York may have some sense to it. For much of the American mid-west and Bible-belt south, New York is seen as the bastion of cosmopolitan liberalism, diametrically opposed to the "traditional" Christian values of America's heartland. To Middle America, New York urbanites are godless city-slickers and carpet-baggers, and your typical Cruz voter really sees this demographic as responsible for many of the US's problems, however that's understood. Of course, there's more than a grain of truth to this: New York really is among the most cosmopolitan and culturally liberal parts of the country, alongside the west coast Mecca, Los Angeles. Americans are well aware that the US financial elite makes much of their money here, and is the place from which the globalist Council on Foreign Relations hatches their schemes for world domination. The only problem is that Cruz, who wants to present himself as a down to earth common man, is that he's perceived as being subservient to elite circles in New York. While the billionaire New York native Trump is seen as a self-funded man on a mission, Cruz is seen as an establishment player who's firmly in the pocket of the New York cosmopolitan elite
Goldman Sachs investments
At 200 West Street in Lower Manhattan, New York City the headquarters of Goldman Sachs is situated, indeed a symbol of Wall Street power. Former Goldman executives who moved on to government positions include Robert Rubin and Henry Paulson who served as US Secretaries of the Treasury under former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, respectively; as well as Mario Draghi, President of the European Central Bank, and Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of Canada from 2008-13 and Governor of the Bank of England since July 2013.
Former NATO General Secretary and Danish prime-minister Andreas Fogg Rasmussen was hired by Goldman Sachs to deal with the Danish government. This multinational company was one of the bloated 'too big to fail' firms responsible for the 2008 financial crisis, and multiple crises before. which hit the American middle and working class very hard. Wall Street bankers plan to continue putting the burden of their own cyclical disasters and mismanagement onto the shoulders of ordinary Americans in future.
Coincidentally, Ted Cruz, whose main electorate are Middle Americans and whose rhetoric is populist, is owned by Goldman Sachs. In 2012, Cruz received a loan from Goldman Sachs to help finance his Senate campaign. The loan, which was for between $250,000 and $500,000 - was not disclosed to the Federal Election Commission, as it should have been. According to his wife Heidi, who also coincidentally is a top-manager at Goldman Sachs, saw the financing of the campaign with their capital as an investment. So in reality this was a standard Goldman Sachs investment in American politics. Without that money and the help of his wife, Cruz would never have become US senator nor therefore a viable candidate for the presidency today.
Goldman Sachs values
Ted Cruz is an outspoken opponent of abortion, and Pro-life movement activists are typically involved as activists in his presidential campaign, representing a strong base of supporters as well. Is it possible then that Goldman Sachs is a vehemently pro-life institution? No it isn't, and it never has been.
Let's see how Goldman Sachs views the question of abortion. It is one of the main sponsors of Planned Parenthood as well as the abortion advocacy group, the Center for American Progress. It also supports pro-choice groups like Planned Parenthood, Unicef, Girls Inc., and the Silicon Valley Foundation. There is nothing surprising in the fact that the bankers on Wall Street are in favor of limiting the right to bear arms for Americans. So, in addition to Planned Parenthood, they also support the National Urban League and the YWCA, both members of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. They also support the Center for American Progress which proposes to strengthen gun control. The Second Amendment effectively strips the state of a monopoly on the use of force, and citizens theoretically rely on the Second Amendment as a guarantor against tyranny. In the event that all other Amendments had been effectively infringed or abolished, if still having the Second Amendment, the people could still effectively threaten the state in real terms, or even force a change of power towards a constitutional government. The second amendment is one of the main obstacles for either an effective state or corporate tyranny.
In addition, sponsors of Cruz welcomed the Supreme Court overturning state bans on same-sex marriage in 2015. Are his supporters happy with this?
In his presidential campaign Ted Cruz speaks out against abortions and for the Second Amendment, rejects gay-marriages and at the same time he is personally and financially connected to the multinational banks, which promote abortions and want to introduce strict gun control in the US. If this is not hypocrisy and deception of voters, then what is?
Sleeping With CFR
Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi Cruz, is associated with another institution that symbolizes the most insidious dimension of "New York Values" in the eyes of ordinary Americans - the Council on Foreign Relations. From 2005-2011 Heidi Cruz was an active member of the Council on Foreign Relations and was a member of the Independent Task Force on North America that in 2005 published a report titled "Building a North American Community". In this document, one of the contributors of which was Heidi Cruz, it is recommended that the US open its borders to migrants. The report proposes to "increase labor mobility within North America" and "expand temporary migrant worker programs ", which means the removal of any barriers to entry into the United States for migrants from Mexico, and the creation of a single economic space on the North American continent within the framework of NAFTA. Heidi Cruz worked as a top deputy to US Trade Rep. Robert Zoellick, who was also managing director of Goldman Sachs and the president of the World Bank. He is well known as one of the main proponents of the NAFTA integration plan, including the free movement of labor, and is a partner of Bush Jr.'s neocons. Zoellic also was one of the main Monsanto lobbyists.
Interestingly, Cruz tries to use the populist rhetoric of Trump on the subject of immigration, although his own wife, the woman who brought him into politics and his main campaign fundraiser, has developed a plan to increase migration into the United States and worked for the actual dissolution of the United States into a new North American economic union. This is the purpose of transnational corporations, which are not particularly concerned about issues affecting Americans, nor of its constitutional framework and ethos, but are interested in the maximum reduction of costs and attracting the most cheap labor.
But it turns out that Ted Cruz is not just owned by New York's financial elites or shadowy figures like conservative businessman Robert Mercer, but also among the main contributors to his campaign are Texan companies, religious fanatics like the Wilks brothers. Cruz's connections to New York banksters are not just limited to his wife and the loans she arranged, which gave him the opportunity to start his political career. Ted Cruz's campaign chairman, Chad Sweet, is a former CIA officer who also worked for Goldman Sachs as well as Morgan Stanley. Is all of this a coincidence? Whether or not most New York voters went to polls yesterday with these facts in mind is unknown, but what is evident is that Cruz is having a very difficult time managing public perception and situating himself as a Middle American populist conservative while having such an obviously subservient relationship to the liberal elite.
