Ted Cruz to announce US presidential bid

Ted Cruz


Ted Cruz is expected to officially announce tomorrow his hopes to be the next USA president:

March 22, 2015

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will announce his presidential campaign Monday, becoming the first major presidential candidate to officially enter the 2016 race.

Aides to the Republican senator tell ABC News he will make the announcement during the convocation speech at Liberty University, a Christian college in Lynchburg, Virginia, on Monday morning. …

Cruz, 44, is the first major candidate to enter what is expected to be a crowded Republican primary field that will likely include former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, Senator Marco Rubio, R-Florida, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. By announcing his candidacy, the Texas senator will skip the exploratory process many presidential candidates undergo. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/ted-cruz-running-president-texas-senator-announce-2016/story?id=29809943

Over the course of the primary campaign, Cruz will aim to raise between $40 million and $50 million, according to advisers, and dominate with the same tea party voters who supported his underdog Senate campaign in 2012. But the key to victory, Cruz advisers believe, is to be the second choice of enough voters in the party’s libertarian and social conservative wings to cobble together a coalition to defeat the chosen candidate of the Republican establishment.

The firebrand Texan may have few Senate colleagues who will back his White House bid, but his appeal to his party’s base who vote disproportionately in Republican primaries could make him competitive in Iowa and beyond.

Yet critics of Cruz argue that he will have trouble raising high-dollar donations from traditional contributors, will land few endorsements from the nation’s political establishment and be unable to escape comparisons to President Barack Obama, who also ran for president in his first Senate term. And if he advances to a general election, Cruz trails likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton solidly in early public opinion polls. …

Getting religious voters

Forty percent of the electorate may vote for the establishment candidate, the advisers predict, but Cruz will “crush” with the 25 percent of voters who come from the tea party bracket. He will then peel some second-choice support from the 10 percent who consider themselves libertarians and from the rest of the voters who identify as social conservatives.

Advisers to Cruz, the son of a pastor, believe he can make a special argument to these religious voters like the thousands of students he is expected to address at a basketball arena Monday at Liberty, a school founded by leader of the religious right Jerry Falwell. About half of the voters in the Iowa caucus this year are expected to be evangelical Christians.

That theory – and those percentages – is described by some Republican hands as overly charitable to the element of the party that Cruz represents. Henry Olsen of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a conservative think tank, said the Cruz campaign was dramatically underestimating the voting power of the liberals, moderates and establishment Republicans in a presidential primary. Olsen argued that about 70 percent of the party will choose the candidate who aligns with the left or the center.  http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/politics/us/article/Ted-Cruz-to-announce-presidential-bid-Monday-6150894.php

Here is some additional information on Ted Cruz:

Sen. Ted Cruz, a tea party favorite, told CNBC on Thursday the only way the GOP can win the presidency in 2016 is to run a strong conservative candidate. …

Cruz also said he supports the rights of the states to decide whether to allow same-sex marriage even though he personally believes in marriage between one man and one women. …

“I support marriage between one man and one woman,” Cruz said. “And I support the Constitution letting each state decide each marriage law consistent with the values of their citizens.”

“One of the problems of the ‘big government left’ is they want everything to be a one-size-fits-all solution from Washington,” he said.

He also advocated repealing Obamacare, auditing the Federal Reserve and getting rid of the federal education Common Core standards. http://www.cnbc.com/id/102135645#.


Cruz rose to political stardom in 2012 as a Tea Party candidate who secured the Republican nomination in the Texas Senate primary against then Lt. Gov. Ted Dewhurst, the establishment-backed candidate. In November of that year, Cruz won the Senate seat and is currently serving in his third year in the Senate.

He has been an outspoken critic of President Obama’s immigration and healthcare plans. In 2013, he led a 21-hour filibuster on the Senate floor in protest against Obamacare just days before a government shutdown.

Cruz, a Cuban-American, was born in Calgary, Canada to an American mother and a father who fled Cuba in the 1950’s. Cruz held dual U.S. and Canadian citizenship until 2014 when he formally renounced his Canadian citizenship.

Cruz received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School. From 2003 to 2008, he served as solicitor general in Texas.  http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/ted-cruz-running-president-texas-senator-announce-2016/story?id=29809943

The mainstream media has tended to dislike Ted Cruz more than many other Republicans. And while that will endear him with some voters, he will need more than just them to get elected. But stranger things have happened in USA politics.

Being a Cuban-American, Ted Cruz is not primarily a physical descendant of Israel (see also Anglo-America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).  The Bible warns:

43 The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower (Deuteronomy 28:43).

The above prophecy has applications to the current US President Barack Obama, whose father was from Kenya.  As far as being descended from Israel, let me state for the records that I personally am primarily Gentile and do not believe that race is a factor for spiritual salvation (see also God’s Grace is For All).  Several prophecies related to ‘Samaria’ in the Old Testament are related to the United States.  And like ancient Samaria, the USA is composed of a major mixture of peoples.

As far as Ted Cruz goes, being Hispanic may help him as the Republicans do not tend to get as much support from Hispanics as the Democrats. In terms of being a more ‘religious’ candidate, Ted Cruz seems to have conceded the rise of the homosexual agenda. Although he is anti-abortion, people should not get the impression that the USA would outlaw abortion if he were to get elected. The immorality lobbies are currently too strong politically in the USA.

Republicans will not be able to fix the problems that the USA has.

Neither will the Democrats.

In the past, Hillary Clinton stated that she planned to announce her presidential intentions around the start of 2015. That did not happen.  With “emailgate” and concerns about Benghazi, etc., some believe she will announce in the late Spring or Summer of 2015.  If she announces she will run, this will reinvigorate some in her party to support her as well as motivate many Republicans to support someone they feel could possibly beat her in an election. Of course, Hillary Clinton lost the primary election to Barack Obama back in 2008, hence while she is considered as ‘the favorite’ at this time, she is not unbeatable. Though at this moment, it would not seem that Ted Cruz would have much of a chance to defeat her.

The mainstream media in the USA tends to consider that Ted Cruz is too ‘radical’ and part of that media will work to try to prevent Ted Cruz from becoming the next USA president.

The USA needs national repentance, otherwise it is doomed. The USA needs the return of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God.
