Spokesman: ‘Senator Cruz
is a U.S. citizen by birth’

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/11/2013 5:45:59 AM

In the past few days, there has been renewed buzz on the Internet about the presidential eligibility of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Cruz has only been in the Senate for about 60 days and does not appear to be behind any of the talk. But he has certainly been in the news in recent days, and in response to a request for comment, his spokesman, Sean Rushton, sent me this note: Sen. Cruz is a U.S. citizen by birth, having been born in Calgary to an American-born mother. He is focused entirely on his new role in the Senate,

Lots of people are citizens. But it takes more than being a citizen -- is he a -- here it comes -- a ´Natural Born´ citizen -- born of 2 American citizen parents -- not just a regular old citizen.

Now let´s settle back in my armchair.

Being born to an American parent should trump and anchor baby being born of two illegal alien parents in the United States, neither of whom are US citizens.

It is is interesting that many of the same people who would say this about Obama being born to an American mother and AFRICAN father and support his citizenship would also seek to deny Senator Cruz´s citizenship.

They fear anyone with a backbone with a US Constitution in their hand and that Cruz has an audience and can show their disregard for it by not supporting, protecting, and defending it and its supporting laws.

When no one obeys the "law of the land" all we will have is lawlessness and anarchy with only a small group of people or a dictator in charge, one who is not necessarily a benevolent one to his political enemies.

We do NOT have a President today.

We do have an Unconstitutional Usurper.

In 1875, in the Minor Case, the US Supreme Court ruled that to be a Natural Born Citizen, one must have TWO US Citizen Parents at the time of your birth. So for the Usurper, case CLOSED!!!

And everything the Usurper has signed it Constitutionally mute and void.

The real 44th President will have one heck of a mess to fix!!

Thank you #1. I´m so tired of trying to get through to people that both parents need to be citizens for their offspring to be considered as "natural born" and, therefore, eligible to become president.

I don´t understand why that is so difficult to comprehend! The Founding Fathers wanted two citizen parents to guarantee that the son (President) would not have divided loyalties.

Just think what that means about Obama. You can´t tell me that he doesn´t have divided loyalties! Because Obama´s mother was an American citizen, Barack was an American when he was born - no matter where that was*. His alleged father, Barack Obama, Sr. never, ever was an American citizen. Ergo, Obama is not eligible to be POTUS!

There are two question about Obama that our Supreme Court could clear up very quickly.
1. Is the "sperm donor" of Pres. Obama really Barack Obama, Sr.? If not, and the "sperm donor" is Frank Marshall Davis, who I believe was an American citizen, then Barry is eligible - no matter where he was born.

2. Did Obama surrender his U.S. citizenship when he lived in Indonesia? Did Barry ever apply to be reinstated as a U.S. citizen?

Can´t we please have a clarification, you Supreme Court Justices, before our Constitution and our nation is totally destroyed? If you agree that he is not eligible to be President, can we get on with the removal from office now?

*Obama´s mother needed to be of a certain age to confer American citizenship on Barry.

Both parents do not need to be US citizens for someone to be natural-born. One citizen parent is enough. Do children of one non-citizen parent have to be "naturalized?" No, because they are already citizens by nature--i.e., natural-born. Those who think otherwise are either ill-informed or wearing tin-foil hats.

York left out one small statement when defining eligibility on natural or native born and that the mother to be a resident of the US for 5 years prior to birth, BUT must also we of age (18 years of age) to confer US citizenship to the offspring. jugears ´mom´ was NOT 18 if she is the one who gave birth to him.
If Rubio is eligible than ANY anchor baby (crossing the borders to give birth here) is eligible. So says Byron York.

#13--the plain language of the Constitution, in its ordinary meaning and as it has always been interpreted. There is not one case in the US Supreme Court--or any court in the United States-- that holds that you have to have two citizen parents to be entitled to citizenship by birth, which is the same thing as being natural born. For those that think otherwise, a little learning is a dangerous thing.

And, #12, while we´re retroactively impeaching presidents, let´s get rid of Tom Jefferson (mom born in England), Andy Jackson (both parents born in Ireland), Woody Wilson (mom born in England), Herbie Hoover (mom born in Canada), and Jim Buchanan (dad born in Ireland).

The Minor case was about women´s suffrage, and women´s eligibility to vote as citizens.

One of these days I´m going to save and cut & paste my standard answer to this.

Natural Born - parents - BOTH - are citizens. In other words, a 2nd generation Amercan. Does not matter how the parents attained citizenship so long as they were citizens PRIOR to the child´s birth.

Native born (or just a plain old citizen) - one or none of the parents are citizens. Citizen by birth, not by parentage.

Naturalized - born a citizen elsewhere, legally immigrating, studying and passing the test for citizenship. This takes a few years.

Pardon a second post. #17´s post is a very clear definition of what "natural born" citizen means vs "native born" citizen and everything in between.

A person can be a citizen but may not be a "natural born" citizen. The parents of a natural-born citizen could certainly have been born elsewhere, but they became a citizen in time for the birth of the potential POTUS, unless they were around when the Constitution was adopted.

We need to remember that when the Constitution was written, the threat to our fledgling nation from European countries was still fresh in the Founders´ minds. Therefore, the term "natural born" was intended to carry a different meaning than the meaning of citizen.

The Founders feared that the nation might fall into the hands of foreigners who either wanted to confiscate our nation´s wealth and/or have power over its citizens. Thus, the "natural born" citizen clause was meant as added protection for the nation from foreign influence.

While the Supreme Court has "never directly addressed the question of a specific presidential or vice-presidential candidate´s eligibility as a natural-born citizen"*, the term and language as opposed by the simple word "citizen" implies a difference between the two. Also, the fact that representatives and senators are only required to be U.S. citizens further emphasizes the distinction.

*the quoted statement is from Wikipedia.

Last month was a bittersweet seventh birthday for Twitter. The Union of Jewish French Students sued the social-media giant for $50 million in a French court in light of anti-Semitic tweets that carried the hashtag #unbonjuif ("a good Jew"). In January, Twitter agreed to delete the tweets, but the student group now wants the identities of the users who sent the anti-Semitic messages so that they can be prosecuted under French law against hate speech. Twitter is resisting. It claims that as an American company protected by the First Amendment, it does not have to aid government efforts to control

It’s an election year, which means the Democrats’ crass politicization of important women’s issues is gearing up once more. Don’t be fooled by President Obama’s new push for pay equity.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.
