One of the things I find interesting is how powerful a media narrative is, and how it will stretch reality to the very limits of absurdity.
Did you know that Heidi Cruz is a bought and paid for shill for the Bilderberg group, the Illuminati, Goldman Sachs, the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, and every other shady conspiracy group you can think of? Yep, it's true. Except, not really. But we do owe journalists for this storyline. "But! The New York Times reported it! So it must be true!"
All of these conspiracy theories hinge on the fact that Heidi Cruz, as Ted Cruz's wife, is capable of convincing Ted (and has convinced him already, and has been convincing him for years) that the status quo is the preferred way, and all of these shadow groups have the correct vision for the future.
All of this ignores the fact that Ted Cruz has a record. That record begins with José Medellín. Why did Former President George W. Bush say that he doesn't like Ted Cruz? "I just don't like the guy"
If you listen to the conspiracy peddlers, George Bush is the same kind of shadowy Goldman Sachs puppet that Heidi and Ted Cruz are. So why the discrepancy? Why aren't Cruz and Bush big time buds? We would likely be told that it's all for show.
The reality is that the conspiracies are not true. For it to be true, Cruz would have had to have argued on behalf of Medellín, the Bush Administration, and on behalf of "the interests". But he didn't do that.
Its truly ironic that the only guy who has an actual verifiable record of fighting against international interests is supposedly a shill for those very interests who he not only went head to head with, but he defeated them. To use the phrasing of the conspiracists, Ted Cruz defeated the globalists. If you want to talk about a conspiracy, if there is any conspiracy, there it is. To prevent any substantive talk about Cruz's actual record and instead focus on nebulous terms in connection with his wife. Ignorance is strength, you know.
Conservative Review has a decent write up about the case of Medellín v. Texas.
