Is Ted Cruz an "anchor baby"? Why, when his father was trying to join Fidel Castro and the Communist Insurrectionists in the hills of Cuba, did he suddenly sew money into his underwear and sail to the United States to attend college? Doesn't it seem strange that a man who has confessed to being a cell leader, recruiter, gunrunner and arsonist would suddenly abandon the quest of a lifetime to meekly attend classes in another country?... Unless he was part of an even bigger plot: to put a Castro sympathizer in the White House!

Should we call Ted Cruz "Castro's Revenge"? Is this why Cruz keeps shutting down the American government? Did the immense internal pressure he put on the American government lead to the end of economic sanctions against Cuba?

And did Cruz give us a smirking clue when he was asked to pick a presidential code name? He chose "Cohiba," which seems very odd for an American president. I did some research, and I found this clue on a definition page for Cohiba: "The word Cuaba, which sounds a lot like Cohiba, is another old Taino Indian word for a highly flammable bush they used to make torches." Is the obviously crafty and clever Cruz laughing at us? Cohiba, Cuaba, Cuba!

What gall, to choose "Cuba" as his Secret Service code name! Is he telling us that Cuba will "torch" the United States, with his assistance? Does he think we're too dumb to figure out his double-agent-code-speak?

Here's another clue: as a boy Ted Cruz was called Felito, which looks and sounds a lot like Fidelo. Felito is a form of Felix, so I did some research and in the book Soldier of Rome (page 121), I found this: "Felix is a noble name, it means Fidelity." So there you have it: Felito means Fidelity, which once again leads us back to Fidel Castro!

Here are the very unusual and troubling facts that I have been able to assemble about Rafael Edward "Little Fidel" Cruz:

Rafael Edward "Little Fidel" Cruz appears to be trying to destroy the US government from within ... why?
His father fought for Fidel Castro and the Cuban Communists.
His father described Fidel Castro as "that old, bearded friend that I left behind in Cuba." Were they that close, bosom buddies?
His father also said: "I remember during that time [the Cuban revolution], a young, charismatic leader rose up, talking about hope and change. His name was Fidel Castro."
His father, according to Ted Cruz, was "a guerilla, throwing Molotov cocktails and blowing up buildings." 
But his father abandoned the war on the verge of victory to attend classes in the US ... why? ... was he selected for a much BIGGER mission?
His father was an able fundraiser for Castro in the US, garnering "huge checks written by numerous Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs members in Texas." 
His mother and father left the United States to emigrate to Canada ... why ... was it to raise "Little Fidel" far from any patriot Americans who might influence him?
His mother and father both appeared on Canadian voting rolls in 1974.
His father has confessed that he became a Canadian citizen; did his mother do the same?
Rafael Edward "Little Fidel" Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada and has a Canadian birth certificate.
His boyhood nickname, "Felito," means "fidelity," leading back to Fidel Castro; the -o suffix is diminutive, thus "Little Fidel."
His self-selected presidential code name, "Cohiba," sounds suspiciously like "Cuba" and is the brand name of a Cuban cigar.
The name "Fidel" can also mean cigar! Cohiba=cigar=Fidel. Was "Little Fidel" telling us where his real loyalties lie?
His father did not become an American citizen until Ted Cruz reached age 35, the age of eligibility to run for president! Was this part of the unfolding plan?
He did not formally renounce his own Canadian citizenship until shortly before launching his bid for the presidency!
He has been called the most loathed man in American politics: is it because he loathes Americans?
He keeps trying to shut down the American government; is this also because he loathes Americans?
Neither he nor his father have ever renounced their claims to Cuban citizenship, as far as I can tell.
He is close to being elected president despite being born in Canada to a Cuban communist revolutionary!
He would be the first Cuban president, the first president born on foreign soil, and the first president born to someone who fought for a communist revolution.
Should Americans accept a foreign birth certificate as evidence in a presidential election?

Where are the birthers when we need them? How can Rafael Cruz be allowed to steal the American presidency when it's beyond obvious that he was planted here by Fidel Castro as revenge for the Bay of Pigs and for JFK keeping nuclear missiles out of Cuba?

Will the Cruz Controller be the first Cuban to head the United States government? Why hasn't Cruz formally renounced his claim to Cuban citizenship? Is he keeping the door ajar now, in order to fling it wide open the day he takes the oath of office: to godless Communism?

Should Americans be forced to accept a foreign birth certificate as evidence in an American presidential election? What if the nation in question were Russia, China, North Korea or Iran? Wouldn't putting our faith and trust in foreign documents leave us at the mercy of our enemies?

Incredibly and ironically, as the New York Daily News recently pointed out: "The proven, accepted, verified circumstances of Cruz’s birth in Canada to an American mother and Cuban father are [exactly] the same circumstances the birther movement made up and claimed disqualified Obama!" And as Josh Earnest recently pointed out: "It would be quite ironic, after seven or eight years of drama over the President's birth certificate, if Republican voters were to choose Senator Cruz as their nominee: somebody who actually wasn't born in the United States and only eighteen months ago renounced his Canadian citizenship!" More importantly, he has still not formally renounced his claim to Cuban citizenship!

The world's most famous and energetic birther, Donald Trump, has opined that Ted Cruz's right to run for president is "very precarious" due to "the fact that he was born in Canada and he has had a double passport." Trump also noted: "When we all studied our history lessons, you're supposed to be born in this country." Later, having firmly put on his thinking cap, Trump flatly told ABC's Jon Karl: "He can't be president." Trump later tweeted his condolences: "Sadly, there is no way that Ted Cruz can continue running in the Republican Primary unless he can erase doubt on eligibility. Dems will sue!"

And―ya gotta love the irony!―it turns out that Ted Cruz's father is a birther who in 2012 told a Tea Party group that President Obama should go "back to Kenya." Of course that means his not-really-American son should go back to effin' Cuba, or effin' Canada! Perhaps Ted "Carnival" Cruz should summer in Canada and winter in Cuba, like a duck!

And the irony gets even more delicious, as Ted Cruz himself is a birther who disqualified himself in 2012 when he said: "Obama's mother's citizenship is irrelevant since his father wasn't American and he wasn't born in America." Cruz later flip-flopped after deciding to become the first Cuban-and/or-Canadian president: "All you need to know about my parentage is my mother was a citizen. My father and place of birth are irrelevant." What hypocrisy and arrogance! Why isn't what's good for a Canadian goose also good for a Kenyan gander?

But is the Canadian goose now cooked? Here are the facts ... c'mon birthers,  do your civic duty! ...

Rafael Bienvenido Cruz y Diaz, is a native-born Cuban who says he fought on the side of Fidel Castro and the communist resistance: leading a cell, throwing firebombs, running guns and recruiting. But despite being a cell leader and recruiter, he claims "not to have known" that his fellow insurrectionists were communists! And oddly, when approached in Ohio and asked to clarify the reason for his 1957 arrest, Mr. Cruz responded: "I'll have to think about it. I don't quite remember." He offered to be interviewed again at an event that same night, but instead had the reporter ejected. Very odd indeed! All we know, with any certainty, is that he supported Castro, recruited for Castro, blew things up for Castro, marched in parades for Castro, tried to join Castro in the hills to fight with the rebels ... but then for some strange reason sewed cash into his underwear and rushed off to the United States. Now he "can't remember." It all sounds very suspicious, doesn't it? Was his mission improbable the same as the Kenyan plot to put Barack Obama in power?

And what about Rafael Cruz's son? Well, the honest birthers should have a field day. First, little "Felito" Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada, in 1970. He became a Canadian citizen at birth, simply by being born on Canadian soil, due to Canada's birthright law. Second, Rafael Cruz did not obtain his U.S. citizenship until 35 years after the birth of his son, which is very suspiciously the year his son reached the presidential age of eligibility! Third, Ted Cruz's mother and father both appeared on Canadian voting rolls in 1974. Fourth, Rafael Cruz has admitted taking Canadian citizenship. Did his wife join him in obtaining Canadian citizenship, which would explain her appearance in the Canadian voting rolls? Fifth, Ted Cruz only renounced his Canadian citizenship in 2014, at age 44, obviously because he thought it would be an issue in the upcoming American presidential election. Sixth, Ted Cruz cannot prove the circumstances of his birth with an American birth certificate. Should Americans accept evidence of foreign origin when the presidency hangs in the balance?

Can a Canadian citizen run for the American presidency? The American Constitution says that an American president must be a "natural born" American citizen. So where are all the Republican birthers, who opposed the election of President Barack Obama on the basis that he was not born in the United States and/or that his father was not a natural-born American citizen? Donald Trump has questioned whether Ted Cruz is a "natural born" American citizen. Carly Fiorina has asked why Cruz waited until the proverbial last minute to renounce his Canadian citizenship, which does seem very odd. Rand Paul has called Cruz a "natural-born Canadian citizen" and has asked if a child can be "naturally born" with two different citizenships. Does being born in Canada and holding a Canadian citizenship from birth to middle age disqualify Cruz from becoming the American president? Only the Supreme Court can say for sure, and there has never been a ruling on this matter to date. Furthermore, is Ted Cruz still eligible to become a Cuban citizen, since his father was apparently Cuban citizen at the time of his birth and neither Cruz nor his father have ever renounced their claims to Cuban citizenships? Was renouncing their Canadian citizenships just an artful dodge to disguise their true allegiance to Communist Cuba? And last but perhaps not least, are Americans willing to accept a non-American birth certificate as "proof" of a person's claims in a presidential election? What if the birth certificate were Kenyan, Cuban, Russian, Iranian or North Korean?

Where are the honest birthers when we need them?
