Acyually, the “National Constitution Center” seems to be made up of the most remarkable enemies of the US Constitition. It houses the Annenberg Foundation, it calls Obama’s speeches “pivotal” amd the trustees and board are Bill Clinton and GHW Bush. And on ond on.
Standard Dem procedure: invade, infest and take over.
Ah. I was trying to figure who it is that keeps bringing up the issue of Cruz’ eligibility. The people who seem to be keeping the issue alive - to the end that all the conservatives insist that we already know Cruz is eligible and don’t need a SCOTUS ruling - are the people who ultimately will want Cruz disqualified.
It’s a trap. The courts have denied standing to anybody who challenged Obama’s eligibility. This leaves NBC undefined so that the issue can be taken up when Hillary challenges Cruz’ eligibility. And the compromised SCOTUS (Roberts, to be exact), when they can’t deny Hillary standing, will rule that Cruz is ineligible.
Denying standing was a double insurance policy. It allowed them to keep Obama in office because nobody with standing challenged his eligibility (Hillary was threatened and McCain may well have been as well) while reserving the ability to get rid of the up-and-coming GOP candidates if necessary when the dem candidate challenged eligibility (Cruz now, but at the time Jindal and Rubio were potential candidates).
To make sure that insurance policy would work, they have to convince us that NBC is already defined so we use up our nomination on somebody that they can always get SCOTUS to oust if that candidate wins the election. So there are 2 parts to that: keep us thinking that NBC is already legally defined, and make sure there is no court case to define NBC until our winning candidate is challenged.
This makes sense of why some of the people here who act and smell like trolls are heavily pushing the idea that we don’t need a court ruling on NBC because we already know Cruz is eligible. What you or I think NBC means is irrelevant. What matters is what a compromised court will rule when push comes to shove. And Hillary would absolutely go there, if Cruz was elected over her. The media is willing to set up the stage by repeatedly bringing up Cruz’ eligibility, just like they did with John McCain - but not Obama.
What we need is a ruling on the meaning of NBC BEFORE Obama leaves office. A ruling given BEFORE Cruz runs, so they can’t string everybody along thinking we already have a definition and then pull a fast one on us when Cruz is elected and Hillary takes it to a SCOTUS for compromised John Roberts to decide.
