Ted Cruz has not come to bring the originalist approach to the United States Constitution. His views on Liberty are not based on the principles of the Founding Fathers and the Enlightenment philosophers, but rather on a Christian heretic cult. He has a lot of his followers fooled, not least evangelicals and Tea Party Libertarians. 

UPDATE: We have previously outlined the approach the Karl Rove/Lee Atwater GOPe types will use to take down Ted Cruz. –HERE– Democrats would also use a similar approach if they ever had the need. Senator Cruz personifies their ideal opponent. Most of Ted Cruz supporters are severely religious, and/or they are part of the financial enterprises surrounding religion. As a direct consequence both elements are intensely committed to avoid vetting him. This head-in-sand approach presents a serious issue – when they don’t confront the problems they’re set up for catastrophic failure. The approach of “proselytizing as an electoral strategy” will bring money from intensely religious followers – but it can never win a broad based election. The following article from 2013 highlights how the GOPe will bring down Cruz as soon as his usefulness is expired. [2013 – TEXAS] In a sermon last year at an Irving, Texas, megachurch that helped elect Ted Cruz to the United States Senate, Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz indicated that his son was among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as “kings” to take control of all sectors of society, an agenda commonly referred to as the “Seven Mountains” mandate, and “bring the spoils of war to the priests”, thus helping to bring about a prophesied “great transfer of wealth”, from the “wicked” to righteous gentile believers.

Lucifer? What could explain a moniker like that? Son of a bitch, okay, that's pretty main stream. But Lucifer? That's extraordinarily moral! It can't be because he's a Conservative. The establishment doesn't like them, but does that warrant calling a peer Lucifer? Could it have something to do with Cruz' role as the anointed king of Seven Mountains Dominionism?
Boehner harshly denounced Sen. Ted Cruz as “Lucifer in the flesh” during a discussion Wednesday night at Stanford University. The former Speaker of the House discussed the future of the Republican Party during the discussion — but he saved his strongest criticism for the Texas senator and GOP presidential candidate, reported the Stanford Daily. “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends,” Boehner said. “I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.” (More)

Oct 16, 2013 Appearance by Rafael Cruz, August 26, 2012, at the New Beginnnings Church of Larry Huch, in Irving, Texas.

Ted Cruz press people will tell you endlessly that he is a born-again Christian, and he may well be. But Ted Cruz is also a member of a strict fundamentalist branch of the Southern Baptist Church but also has deep roots in the Dominionist theology and Charismatic Pentecostalism of his father. His father Rafael Cruz is is a noted Dominionist preacher. One of the doctrines he preaches is the Charismatic prosperity heresy of something called “end times transfer of wealth“. This is not found anywhere in the Bible, and in fact is a ploy by the Charismatic movement to get their people to “tithe” at a higher level. This is the type of “Christianity” that is found in the Cruz household. Dominion theology is also known as Christian reconstructionism and theonomy. Dominion theology states that biblical Christianity will rule all areas of society, personal and corporate. Christian reconstructionism reasons that society will be reconstructed by the Law of God as preached in the gospel and the Great Commission. Theonomy is a post-millennial view believing that all of the moral laws contained in the Old Testament are yet binding today.

Rafael Cruz indicated that his son Ted is among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as “kings” to take control of all sectors of society, an agenda commonly referred to as the “Seven Mountains” mandate, and “bring the spoils of war to the priests”, thus helping to bring about a prophesied “great transfer of wealth”, from the “wicked” to righteous gentile believers. They believe that they are working to “bring in the Kingdom” right here and now instead of waiting for it as the Bible says with Jesus Christ. They have seized upon this verses in an attempt to prove their end times transfer of wealth heresy: “A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.” Proverbs 13:22 (KJV) Now where, in your wildest imagination, do you see God saying that there will be an “end times transfer of wealth” in that verse? Well, if you are a typical, lying Prosperity Gospel preaching Christian swindler, you see it rather clear. But this is one of the core teachings of Ted Cruz’s brand of Christianity. THIS IS WHAT SEVEN MOUNTAINS DOMINIONISM IS (...) (Source)

What is his [Cruz's] real vision for America? Cruz likes to talk about “taking back” or “reclaiming” the United States. What does he mean by this? Many Americans — Christian or otherwise — may find the answers to these questions disturbing. (...) Cruz resonates with the evangelical culture warriors. He mixes what New York Times columnist David Brooks describes as political “brutalism” with a belief that he is engaged in a fight with the devil for the soul of the nation. It is only a matter of time before Cruz assumes the role of the Old Testament prophet Elijah and tries to cast down fire from heaven to destroy the “prophets of Baal” who oppose his campaign. (...) his father, traveling evangelist Rafael Cruz, has played in his life. During a 2012 sermon at New Beginnings Church in Bedford, Texas, Rafael Cruz described his son’s political campaign as a direct fulfillment of biblical prophecy. The elder Cruz told the congregation that God would anoint Christian “kings” to preside over an “end-time transfer of wealth” from the wicked to the righteous. (...) Ted Cruz is anointed by God to help Christians in their effort to “go to the marketplace and occupy the land … and take dominion” over it. This “end-time transfer of wealth” will relieve Christians of all financial woes, allowing true believers to ascend to a position of political and cultural power in which they can build a Christian civilization. When this Christian nation is in place (or back in place), Jesus will return. (...) (Source)

The above twitter card explains Ted Cruz's Seven Mountains Domionism Cult in a few easy words. How can an anoinTed cult leader be the proper custodian of Liberty rooted in the American Constitution? Theocracy is contrary to Liberty. It's just as incompatible as Obama's egalitarian Nihilism! For a full explanation scroll down to the bottom posting.

Ted Cruz, the Messiah of Seven Mountains Dominionism fuses politics and theology.

In a sermon last year, Rafael Cruz said that his son is among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as “kings” to take control of all sectors of society. This is a Christian dominionist agenda that’s commonly called the “Seven Mountains” mandate: (1) Business; (2) Government; (3) Media; (4) Arts and Entertainment; (5) Education; (6) Family; and (7) Religion. If “Seven Mountains” is too abstract, “Creeping Christofascism” puts a much finer point to it. In fulfilling the “Seven Mountains” Mandate, Rafael Cruz said that his son and other “anointed kings” would help bring about a “prophesied great transfer of wealth” from the “wicked” to the “righteous gentile believer.” Rafael Cruz said that they are “Kings who are anointed to go to war, win the war, and bring the spoils of war to the priests.” (...) So what is this “End Times Transfer of Wealth?” It’s the belief that the Kingdom — which is the name given to the vast Global Caliphate that Dominionists want to set up — will remove the wealth from the sinners and give it to the church. This will play a role in the beginning of the Second Coming. So what role does Ted Cruz play in this? He’s announced a bid at the presidency, after all. While I can only speculate, I think the better question is, “do we want to find out?” (Source)

Public Understanding Originalism has enjoyed resurgent respect in the past few years, increasingly embraced by scholars from across the ideological spectrum. Its appeal stems from its apparent ability to provide an objective basis for applying the law, overcoming the subjectivism of Original Intent Originalism and the naivete about language in Textualist Originalism. Public Understanding Originalism’s current prestige is thanks in large part to vigorous defenses from Keith Whittington and Randy Barnett, which argue for its unique ability to give faithful effect to the will of the people and to respect the written character of our constitution. This paper examines these two arguments. Neither vindicates the Originalist conclusion. The Originalists’ understanding of “original” meaning reveals a failure to recognize the conceptual nature of language and the open-ended nature of concepts. Indeed, because it fails to appreciate what objective meaning is, Public Understanding Originalism collapses into the very subjectivism that it seeks to oppose. Download the paper.

Beck and Cruz are offering no defense for their heretic fusion of politics and theology. Instead they attack Trump and Christians who support him. According to Cruz' main cheerleader Glenn Beck, Cruz has been "Anointed for this Time." According to Cruz the father, Ted is "anointed by God" to be a king. Beck's "living your Christian faith" means infiltrating the political and social body with operatives of the Seven Mountains Dominionism cult. The fusion of politics and theology is also contrary to a view expressed by one of the leading academic experts on religion in America, Dr. Thomas S. Kidd, Distinguished Professor of History and Associate Director of the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University:
Assuming that Mr. Beck is referring to evangelicals who vote for Trump, I would make a distinction that Beck does not: The Bible certainly offers principles on how to think about government and politics. The Bible does not, however, tell us which individual candidates to vote for.
To date, however, the Cruz campaign has stood by Beck. Breitbart News reached out to the Cruz campaign to comment on Beck’s statement criticizing evangelicals who support Trump and not Cruz. Cruz campaign spokesperson Brian Phillips in an emailed statement offered no defense and attacked Trump once more. (Source) Glenn Beck meanwhile is tripling down on his statement that evangelical Christians who support Donald Trump and not Sen. Ted Cruz “are not listening to their God.” (Source)

Republican establishment @LizMair's anti Trump super PAC attacked Melania Trump with a nude pic.

Before the Utah primary on March 22 an Anti Donald Trump Super PAC was running ads to convince Mormons not to vote for Trump by slut-shaming his wife, Melania. Make America Awesome PAC founded by Republican strategist @LizMair, was trying to increase turnout of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to convince Mormons to vote for Ted Cruz rather than Donald Trump. The Super PAC was running three ads in the state. One featuring Mitt Romney urging voters to support Ted Cruz, and another highlighting Trump changing his view on abortion. The third featured Melania Trump posing nude mocking the idea that she could be the first lady one day. The idea is that the future first lady is a slut. Melania btw started her modeling career at age 5. (Source)

In his campaign Ted Cruz has taken the attitude of the moral purist and as the great defender of the Constitution par excellence. But as is often the case with people claiming the moralist highground, not everything is what it seams. Cruz' principled adherence to the US Constitution is not rooted in the Enlightenment philosophy of Liberty, but rather in an awkward form of supremacist political Christianity. He has all his followers fooled! Libertarians specifically should pay attention! 

This is not to state that Christianity is in any way, shape, matter or form morally equal to Islam; but the main problem in Islam is its political component does not differentiate between the realm of Government (the secular) and the realm of personal morality and of society. The holistic idea that fuses the three realms of human life, is what the Caliphate is all about.

Moreover, Jesus Christ himself rejected the fusion of the sacred and the secular when he declared: "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." Read more on the secular versus the sacred and the personal in The Counter Enlightenment: Secular Law, Common Culture and Personal Liberty (6).

But the cult of Ted Cruz has another interpretation of Scripture and the views of the Founding Fathers of America.

Peter Montgomery, writing on Right Wing Watch (source) has studied the cult of father and son Cruz. He gives us this on Rafael's Cruz' book “A Time for Action: Empowering the Faithful to Reclaim America” that sends shivers down the spine of every lover of Liberty.

GOP activist David Barton, a discredited historian who is currently running a pro-Ted Cruz Super PAC makes recycled Christian-nation historical claims that are repeatedly cited by Ted's father Rafael, who writes in his book:
I believe without a shadow of a doubt that the reason the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States have lasted over two centuries is that they were divinely inspired and then written by men who had spent time on their knees. These were men of God seeking revelation from God, and that’s what He gave them. 
Rafael talks about the dangers of secular humanism and makes a glancing reference to Seven Mountains Dominionism, the belief that conservative Christians must gain control over the "seven mountains" of American culture.
In no way, shape, or form was Jefferson implying that the church should be restricted from exerting an influence upon society. On the contrary, the Bible tells us that we are the salt of the earth and light of the world…Doesn’t that suggest that our influence should touch every area of society – our families, the media, sports, arts and entertainment, education, business, and government?”
Like Barton, Rafael makes his case for the Christian nature of the US Government by conflating the pilgrims and Puritans with the Founding Fathers who gave us the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution more than 150 years later. Rafael declares that “the concept of separation of church and state is found nowhere in either the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States of America,” which leads into this:
To understand this clearly, we need to go back four centuries to the time of the first settlers in America. If you lived in England in the early 1600s and were not a member of the Church of England, you would be considered a heretic and subject to persecution. So the early settlers immigrated to the New World in order to freely worship the Lord their God. What a remarkable heritage of religious freedom this exceptional country gives us! The only country on the face of the earth founded on the World of God! 
As this new constitutional representative republic stretched its wings following the Revolutionary War, citizens of the thirteen colonies wondered if their new government would impose a state religion upon them like the one their forefathers suffered in England. (Source)
The concept of the separation of church and state may not be found in either the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States of America, as Rafael Cruz claims, but it is central to Christianity as well as to Liberty philosophy!

Christians themselves have been fighting the Obama regime against laws that forces liberal morality on them on the basis of the freedom of consciousness. We have seen the infamous gay cake episodes and Catholics against Obama Care.

What we have here is a supremacist Christian cult foisting its morality by calculated infiltration of the secular, social and personal realms. This is very alarming indeed! 

If Cruz manages to get to the White House, we have replaced the Marxist soft tyranny of Barack Obama with one that believes it is okay to enforce a cultist morality, one that by objective standards is a Christian heresy at that!
