Yes, Ted Cruz Likely
Eligible to be President

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Ken Klukowski

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/12/2013 4:29:59 PM

On Mar. 8, reporter Carl Cameron on Special Report on Fox News Channel was surveying potential GOP 2016 presidential candidates. Then he raised Ted Cruz--one of the most brilliant constitutional lawyers ever to serve in the Senate- the new 41-year old Hispanic senator from Texas. Cameron added, “But Cruz was born in Canada and is constitutionally ineligible” to run for president. While many people assume that, it’s probably not true. Cameron was referring to the Constitution’s Article II requirement that only a “natural born citizen” can run for

Comments:
And we´re off and running. It´s a shame more people didn´t seriously investigate Barack Hussein 0bama and his eligibility to serve as president.

The author writes that he doesn´t remember McPain´s eligibility being questioned but there were numerous stories and challenges because of his birth in the Canal Zone.

Our daughter was born in Mexico, she is eligible tobe President under our laws since her mother and father are citizens and were temporarily living outside the country.

The author is correct that the stories should put the preponderance of proof on the shoulders of those who come up with claims that birth to an American citizen who is residing abroad somehow makes one ineligible. The existing law does not support that interpretation. It is a reason I thought questioning BHOnehead´s citizenship based on where he might have been born was a waste when there is little question of his maternity. The burden to prove he had renounced his citizenship or lost it has been on others and interesting stories are woven but not accepted by those who tens of millions elect our president.

Agree, OP.

Barack Obama´s father was a British citizen. And, despite the famed long-form birth certificate he released, we still don´t know where Barry was born.

It´s going to take me about 30 minutes with an old typewriter and some blue construction paper to create a birth certificate for Senator Cruz that is every bit as legitimate and Obama´s.

It is NOT where you were born. It only matters the BOTH of your parents were US Citizens at the time of birth.

That is per the US Supreme Court in 1875 defining Natural Born Citizen in the Minor Case.

That is it. The debate is over.

#4, has the right of it, since the first congress said the same thing - it´s in the congressional globe. Anybody can look it up and read it if they want to know. Both parents citizens at time of birth means you´re natural born - that was the definition the founders were using when they wrote the constitution. The first congress specifically mentioned being born ´across the seas´ to parents who were both American citizens. So location doesn´t matter, your parent´s citizenship at the time of birth does.

Odd then that the Constitution states "natural born citizen" as a requirement for the pres & vp only. I guess they were just being silly!

Native born = born on us soil (like anchor babies)

Natural born = born on us soil to 2 US citizen parents.

It needs to be defined finally by the court.

Chester A. Arthur was James Garfields VP candidate in 1880. His qualifications were questioned because his father was an English citizen at the time of his birth.

John Fremont, the first Republican candidate for President in 1856, was born to a mother who was a US citizen and a father who was a French citizen. That was well known and never contested.

Bottom line is there isn´t a court in the land that would rule Rubio, Jindal, Cruz or Haley ineligible. Does that mean people who think otherwise will refuse to vote.

Natural born citizens have two US citizens as parents. If born on US soil, it is indisputable. A military base or embassy overseas is US soil.

That said, Ted Cruz does not qualify. Neither does obama but he is the President.

Ted Cruz would make an outstanding US Supreme Court Chief Justice. To me, that is his "best" next job.

#4: In 1875, the SCOTUS ruled that a person born of two US citizens is definitely a "Natural Born" citizen. It did not rule that a person needed two US citizens as birth parents to qualify as a Natural Born citizen.

There´s a big difference between the two. The court knew this and noted that fact in it´s written ruling along with the statement that that aspect of the constitution would have to be decided in some future court case.

#11: Good points and I believe that will be the case if ever brought to the SCOTUS.

Cruz is a Constitutional scholar, and apparently a remarkably accomplished one. If anyone knows if he´s eligible, that person would be Cruz himself. Any decision he makes about whether to run for the presidency will be predicated on that. If he´s eligible, and he wants to run, he´ll do so. If he´s not, and he doesn´t, he won´t. He probably would make an excellent Supreme Court justice, as one poster suggested.. My assumption--and I could be wrong--is that he´ll continue to serve Texas and the larger interests of the United States in the senate for a while. At his young age, he has a long career ahead of him.

John McCain´s citizenship was not in question because he was born at Coco Solo Naval Air Station in the Panama Canal Zone; at that time of his birth, the Panama Canal was under U.S. control. #10 is correct -- U.S. military bases everywhere are considered sovereign U.S. territory.

Now, if #4 is correct, then we can rule out Marco Rubio, whose parents were NOT U.S. citizens at the time of his birth, regardless of the fact Rubio was born in the U.S.

But keep in mind that, in many countries, if a child is born to U.S. citizen parents, that country may still consider you to be a citizen of that country, even though the parents will obtain a U.S. passport for that child from the Consulate. If I recall correctly, when the child turns 18 they can choose whether or not to retain their dual citizenship.

Ted Cruz´s mother was an American citizen. His father immigrated during the Cuban Revolution. I have been unable to find reference to him becoming an American citizen or not. However, any Cuban touching the shore of the U>S> can remain here for life. The parents were working in Canada, there were not emigrating to Canada. Any reference to ted Cruz´s father´s
citizenship would be appreciated.

Look it. The RULES of this game are that whomever/whatever the dems run, the republicans match with a slightly less appealing candidate that carries the same baggage. THEN we move on to discounting the dems baggage and emphasizing the republicans baggage. And voila, another dem is elected.
obama/mccain - questions of birth and both on soros payroll, no real questions about obama´s stance (because he played both sides)and annihilation of mccain. obama/romney, again both liberals, both with managed healthcare bills, no real questions about obama´s catastrophic term as potus, annihilation of what in the past, would have been an acceptable candidate to most democrats. And, with eight years of placing judges and other officials, all partisan, in powerful positions, can you honestly tell me you think we will ever have a chance to elect a fiscally conservative (forget about social, we are too far gone)candidate. So let´s not get lost in the weeds again about Cruz´s birth. His words and actions, so far, would assure him of my vote.

Let´s determine once and for all if according to law, real law not that crap our politicians spout, if Obama is a legal POTUS. If he is not every bill he signed, every regulation his administration made, every appointment he made and every executive order he issued is NULL and VOID. BTW I think the entire ticket would be invalid and that would be good because Biden is so totally stupid he would be just one more disaster the dems have forced on us.

That would keep congress busy for a good long while and maybe give the nation a chance to recover.

The interesting thing is the thought that Cruz is a potential 2016 candidate. He must have at least a few libs nervous.

Yes, there was the brief kerfluffle (sp?) over McCain; George Romney was born in the American Embassy in Mexico, I believe--that was determined to be OK. Barry Goldwater was born in the Arizona Territory, not the US. It wasn´t a state yet; that counted.

He does have a flaw tho; he´s a republican. As noted by some posters, if he were a Dem he could have been born in Klingon and that would be OK.

OP - It´s really a shame that the Supreme Court hasn´t made a definitive statement on the meaning of "natural born". Congress has a share of the blame, too. Obama is the result of both dropping the ball, each for selfish reasons, IMHO.

It seems pretty clear to me that "natural born" was very important to the Founders who crafted the Constitution. They had real fears that a disloyal president would be elected and all their efforts at founding a country based on freedom and liberty without the chains of "slavery" to another country would be abolished.

Just remember, the authors of the Declaration of Independence and the writers of the Constitution would have been hanged or worse if their idea hadn´t worked out. They felt it necessary at the end of the Declaration to take an oath to each other:And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Maybe "divine Providence" is leading us along on this - we really desperately need His smiling face to shed His light on US.

If the child is born abroad to one citizen and one alien parent ..."for birth between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, a period of ten years, FIVE after the age of fourteen are required for physical presence in the U.S. to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child." Obama was born 08-04-61, his mother 11-29-42. She turned nineteen in November 1961. That´s why he needs that fake HI passport to even suggest he´s native born.

No matter where obi was born the fact that he hates the Constitution is not a mystery to anyone. He is a malicious , greedy, willful little man with virtually no ability or accomplishments. He is simply a tool for those who wish to grow their power or to live on the dole. Cruz may not have been born here but he is certainly a Patriot. Our current president does not understand even the concept.

This provision of the constitution is broken. The founders wanted to have a president who was loyal to the founding principles. Obama is clearly a red diaper baby. He was raised by Frank Marshall Davis. Obama Sr was away for all but a few days of his life. The thesis that the real father was Frank Marshall Davis is convincing. He should never be president because of his many lies and most of all because he is alien in his mentality to the founding principles of the country. He hates the nation and it´s constitution and told everyone plainly he wants to fundamentally transform it. We were warned!

Dear Sir,

The House of Representatives has had two shots at preventing Obama to be sworn in as President, just prior to his being sworn into office--they failed to act at either time. Under the 20th Amendment they are required to examine the President´s qualifications for office, which requires only a majority vote of the House.

His birth certificate proves he is a Citizen of the United States. If you read the qualifications for President under Article 1, Section 8, you will note the requirements for a Citizen of the United States to be President. You will find they all had to be born before 1788, when the new Constitution containing that requirment went into force. He is not old enough to be President.

Only those people who are "natural born citizens" are legally qualified to be President. If you will check his birth certificate, you will note he is also a British citizen, having been born of a father who was a British Citizen. Albeit, his father has renounced his British citizenship, Obama has not.

The Congress is required to enforce the Law of Nations, and has done so a number of times, as a brief examination of the cases will affirm. They also define what a Natural Born Citizen is, as well. Both parents must be born in the country of citizen parents.

I sent the above data to two congressmen, but have not had a reply. I don´t know if they bothered to affirm the 20th amendment, or not.

The Supreme Court has refered to ´natural-born cititzen´ in a handful of cases, each time readdressing Vattel´s original definition.

This reference is perhaps the clearest:

U.S. Supreme Court
Minor v. Happersett (1874)

(excerpt)

Under the power to adopt a uniform system of naturalization, Congress, as early as 1790, provided "that any alien, being a free white person," might be admitted as a citizen of the United States, and that the children of such persons so naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under twenty-one years of age at the time of such naturalization, should also be considered citizens of the United States, and that the children of citizens of the United States that might be born beyond the sea, or out of the limits of the United States, should be considered as natural-born citizens.

Judges and juries can disagree about the law.

Fine.

But the politics of it are this: The Dem/Media machine will roast the Republicans for being hypocrites and running a person of questionable birth. The facts and details will not matter. It´s still a good idea but only if you´re ready for a fight. The Dems will fail to see the irony of their position.
It´s a LOFO thing.

#4 is grossly mistaken, as is everyone who relies on Happersatt (1875) Wong Kim Ark (1898) overruled Haeppersatt, and held that anyone physically born on US soil IS a natural born US citizen (a citizen at the moment of their birth) no matter *what* the nationality of their parents is. (Both of Wong Kim Ark´s parents were Chinese nationals who had gone back to China, but he was still declared a US citizen solely by reason of the location of his birth)

That´s been US law for 115 years now, like it or not. That´s where "anchor babies" come from. If you want to make things different, you have to amend the Constitution.

The US Supreme Court will NEVER hear another case on this matter without that because they have considered the matter settled for the last 115 years, and they do not care to reopen it.

#44 and others - The Wong Kim Ark case determined that ´anchor babies´ are citizens, yes, but NOT natural born. The constitution doesn´t say 35 yrs old, resident in country for 14 years, and citizen - it uses the limiting qualifier ´natural born´ citizen - born of 2 parents, both of whom are citizens. In other words, a citizen may hold any political office except Pres/VP. The executive is reserved to a person who is at minimum a 2nd generation American, a ´natural born´ citizen.

With staff permission may I suggest further reading for everyone at this link - http://art2superpac.com/issues.html - which discusses Article II eligibility, including 6 Supreme Court cases.

To be president, one has to be a Natural Born citizen which means:

1. Both your parents must be U.S. citizens at the time of your birth.

2. You cannot hold, have held or have been eligible to hold dual citizenship.

If both parents have to be eligible, then either two things are possible. One, Obama should be declared ineligible by a court and forced to step down. Or two, since there apparently is no way to get this issue into court and no way to get a court to decide it, it is left up to the political process. In other words, if you think Ted Cruz or someone else is ineligible, don´t vote for him.

Ever wonder why the term naturalized is used when a legal immigrant achieves citizenship?
Correctly interpreted that indicates the person is NOW equal to a natural born citizen. Their children are natural citizens and under US law that interprets as "born of the soil" all babies born on US soil are natural born also.
That can be difficult to accept especially since most of our states originated under British common law that ruled citizens were born of the blood meaning the father´s citizenship does not apply.
Now since American mother´s have constitutional rights their children are natural citizens no matter where the dad might have originated.
Do you remember the screams that the first test tube baby wasn´t a citizen ?

I don´t care if Barry Soetoro had two Christian parents who were born in Peoria and went on to achieve sainthood. He´s not eligible to be president because he´s as un-American as it gets. And he´s stupid too.

Point in fact...

John McCain was vetted by a Senate committee, which examined his circumstances
to see if he was eligible as a "natural born citizen" and found him to be so.

No one could address this issue regarding Bammy because that would be racist.

See how things are?

Report: Wendy Davis caught
up in FBI investigation

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Dem Rep: Obamacare will bury us

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Father Ray Kelly, the singing Irish priest who shot to fame with his wedding ceremony cover of “Hallelujah,” will perform in New York, on Tuesday May 13, to support the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

The ´soft despotism´ of regulation

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb.

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is not interested in running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, the New York Times reported. A Sebelius spokeswoman told the newspaper in a story posted late Thursday that the secretary is "continuing her important work at H.H.S. and is not considering a run for the Senate." Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen. Pat Roberts back home in Kansas. President Obama announced Sebelius´ resignation last week and said he would

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
