This thread is for information on other candidates to be used to inform voters or caucus voters about why to vote for Gov. Mike Huckabee instead.

A. Donald Trump
Many people like the blunt way in which Donald Trump makes statements on what America needs to do. But, what is his experience, his past record? What are his core beliefs?

B. Marco Rubio

Marco Rubio endorsed Gov. Huckabee in the 2008 cycle. To me, that's a pretty good indication that he would be okay with everyone voting vor Mike Huckabee also this time around. :wink: :wink: :wink:

C. Ted Cruz

Like Obama (Barack Hussein Obama), he prefers not to go by his given name, Rafael Edwardo Cruz. Maybe not so significant, but interesting.

But this is important: his ties to many leagues of power and money. Who is Ted Cruz? We are finding out many more complex angles every week, it seems.

And the interesting story of Heidi Cruz:
http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/artic ... aking-wife

The campaign narrative of the Cruz family in the speeches and publicity is much different from their real lives that are connected to power and wealth. Gov. Huckabee, while not speaking specifically of Cruz, often notes how connections to power, wealth, and big business lobbies keep too many leaders in D.C. from being effective to change the very "Washington axis of power" that Cruz mentions in his speeches. Ted's wife Heidi is a high ranking vice president of Goldman Sachs bank, and they have endorsements of Wall Street and K Street and other national and international power brokers.

Cruz Faces Serious Scrutiny
by Craig Robinson
January 14th, 2016

Texas Senator Ted Cruz might be the favorite to win Iowa, but it’s not been smooth sailing. Cruz showed he is committed to Iowa with a six day, 28-stop bus tour of Iowa last week. But despite the impressive crowds that came out to seem him on the road, he was repeatedly asked about his opposition to the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS), and later in the week, he faced questions about whether he is a natural born citizen and thus, eligible to be President of the United States.

It was Donald Trump who raised the question, and while the initial response was, “there he goes again,” Trump actually was careful in crafting his argument. Trump cited Laurence Tribe, a constitutional law professor from Harvard, who has stated in the past that the definition of a natural born citizen isn’t settled law because the U.S. Supreme Court has never taken up the issue.

“Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question,” Trump said in Clear Lake this past Saturday. “Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years? That’d be a big problem.”

It’s a simple argument designed to make voters question how well they know Cruz. It is also a line of attack that may work better than you think because both Cruz and Trump are popular with white males who listen to a lot of talk radio, and thus there are probably a number of voters who may fall into the “birther” category. If they questioned Obama’s status a few years ago, they should be equally concerned about Cruz, regardless of whether he is one of their own.

There were a couple of good articles on each side of the issue worth reading.

The Washington Post published, Ted Cruz is not eligible to be president, on Tuesday. It is written by Mary Brigid McManamon, a constitutional law professor at Widener University’s Delaware Law School.

Last March, Neal Katyal and Paul Clement wrote, On the Meaning of “Natural Born Citizen,” in the Harvard Law Review.

Needless to say, campaign staffers of Cruz’s opponents are getting a good laugh over this. One name I’ve heard Cruz called is the “Cuban Canuck.”

One of Cruz’s new national co-chairs, Bob Vander Plaats, has in the past praised Trump for aggressively challenging President Obama’s nationality.

https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/100184669&color=ff5500

You remember just over a year ago, people were basically applauding Trump because at least he was being bold and saying some stuff that others just didn’t want to say. And even the deal of Obama’s birth certificate, whether people think that was ridiculous or not, at least he said, ‘Prove to us that you were born here.

Vander Plaats has also been recorded saying, “What kind of leader wouldn’t just show the birth certificate?”

[https://www.youtube.com/embed/QlGX5NZX_eM]

Cruz isn’t just dealing with questions about the status of his birth. On Wednesday afternoon the New York Times published an article that stated that Cruz failed to disclose that he received more than a million dollars in loans from Goldman Sachs for his 2012 U.S. Senate campaign. Cruz’s wife works for Goldman Sachs.

His wife’s employment with the big investment firm and the fact that he borrowed money for the company doesn’t square with Cruz’s tea party persona.


How will this play in Iowa? Ironically, we just had a Republican U.S. Senate candidate who also worked for Goldman Sachs. Let’s just say he wasn’t really embraced by the grassroots. In the 2010 Republican Third District Congressional primary, a Des Moines Tea Party group alleged that this candidate had been “instrumental” billions of bailout money for a big bank, despite the fact he was just a local financial advisor.

Again, the underlying question in all of this just a couple weeks before the caucuses is, do we really know who Ted Cruz is?

These issues will likely come up in tonight’s Republican Presidential debate in South Carolina and in the Iowa debate later this month. It also has some people wondering if Cruz is experiencing a similar vetting to what Newt Gingrich went through in 2012. At this point four years ago, Gingrich led the polls in Iowa by an average of eight points. He finished a distant fourth in the caucuses.

Cruz has a much more robust and disciplined campaign than Gingrich ever had, but the issues he’s dealing with are substantial.

Donald Trump Playing Games on Ted Cruz’s Eligibility
JANUARY 14, 2016 BY ADAM GRAHAM

The question of whether Ted Cruz is constitutionally eligible to be President is a hot topic. Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother. Many question whether that makes him eligible under the Constitution’s requirement that the President be “a natural born citizen.” The Washington Post has hosted two separate editorials over the past week on the question with one by Jonathan Adler arguing that Cruz is eligible and the Natural Born Citizen clause in Article II of the Constitution means that only someone who is born a citizen can be President. On the other hand, Professor Mary Brigid McManamon contends that while Ted Cruz was “naturalized at birth,” and that “national born citizen” was a legal term in the eighteenth century that referred only to those born in the country.

It’s a debate that will continue, whether anyone wants it to or not. Beyond the merits of the debate is the question of how this will affect Cruz’s long-term viability as a candidate. There are sincere people who believe in strictly following the Constitution (and would generally be sympathetic to Ted Cruz) but interpret the Constitution as making Cruz ineligible and therefore will not support him.

However, what’s not under dispute is that we’re talking about issue because of Donald Trump. Trump has been dropping hints about this issue and the media has picked it up. He has said, “Ted Cruz has a problem, I mean he has a problem,” in calling into question Cruz’s eligibility. He’s begun to play, ‘Born in the USA’ as a taunt and to get out the message that Cruz wasn’t.

Yet, Trump, only two months ago named Cruz as his potential running mate. The problem with this? The Twelfth Amendment states, “ no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.” So if Trump truly believes Cruz to be constitutionally ineligible to be President, he has no business considering him to be Vice-President.

Trump supporters might argue Trump named Cruz his running mate without knowing about Cruz’s ineligibility then. This would suggest Trump spoke out of ignorance rather than dishonesty. However, Trump commented on the eligibility issue back in March , eight months before he suggested making Cruz Vice-President.

This inconsistency should lead to Trump being asked some tough questions such as, “Why did you suggest Ted Cruz as your running mate when you stated his eligibility is questionable?” “Given you have questioned Ted Cruz’s eligibility will you rule out choosing him as your running mate? If not, why should voters rule him out as a Presidential candidate?” “Were you aware the qualifications for President and Vice-President are the same?”

The answers would be entertaining, which is all you can say about any answer from Donald Trump. While legal scholars can debate whether the circumstances of Ted Cruz’s birth disqualify him from the presidency, the dishonest and cavalier way Trump has addressed this issue should disqualify him from consideration to be the Republican nominee by any serious person.

Disclosure: Adam Graham has endorsed Mike Huckabee for President and is author of the ebook, Road to Victory: A Conservative’s Case for Mike Huckabee and is host of the Truth and Hope Report Podcast which is currently airing a series, “Our Man Huck.”

This issue should led to the downfall of Ted Cruz among honest conservatives, in my opinion. This is not an "honest mistake" on his part, of course, but intended deception, especially taken together with the stories he spun about investing all their savings into their own campaign. Will conservatives wake up?

This should be worse to conservatives than anything Mike Huckabee has ever "done", supposedly.

C. Ted Cruz again
(Not because we hate him, but because people need to know when deceit is concealed--this is not just a high school debate or Boy's State contest; this has long-term consequences. Some say this could be America's last chance to elect a Republican, conservative candidate. We will be made greater or smaller morally, and in every way, by the quality of the presidential candidate we elect this time.)

If truthfulness has not been a hallmark of the Obama or Clinton regimes, we must make extra certain with this election to carefully vet Cruz and each candidate. No surprises, please! And Cruz is giving us many of late...

A couple more...

Not really trying to target only Cruz, but it is just that so much questionable information is coming out about him. Donald Trump decided to unload on the Stephanopoulus show....(Will try to find that link)

Also, the topic of Rafael Cruz' "church" has come up and it seems to be based on the cult called Dominion Theology, which holds that the wealth of the wicked will be given to the "kings" of the dominion, to usher in the millenium. His father Rafael has pronounced Ted Cruz to be an anointed one. This begins to make more sense: the banking connections, the North American trade union. Knowing their theological beliefs, the money connections of the Cruz family are more easily understood.

Sadly, many evangelical leaders have been "hoodwinked"--a word that originally meant "blind-folded," or "hidden" and now means "deceived by false appearance" or "duped." These leaders who have endorsed him or had him in their churches were assured that Ted and his father are true Christian conservatives, just as much as Huckabee or the others. Most of his supporters probably assume he is a Baptist, too. More and more, the Cruz's Christian credentials and their conservative ones are being called into question.

The Iowa Governor just came out against Cruz. I wonder if this is going to change anything for Huckabee in Iowa.
