  • Canadian Ted Cruz: Does He Have Documents To Prove He's A US Citizen And Eligible To Be Pres?

    02/12/2016 7:32:25 AM PST · by NKP_Vet · 134 replies ^ | February 10, 2016 | Mac Slavo
    According to the Obama administration, because Obama's mother was U.S. citizen and because he was reportedly born in Hawaii, he has the necessary qualifications to be President. But many, dubbed "birthers" by Obama supporters, still believe he was born in Kenya. If true, the argument goes, he would not be qualified to hold the Executive office because regardless of his mother's citizenship, he was not born on U.S. soil. The latter is a legitimate argument and one that appears to be supported by the Constitution, though no court has ever clearly defined the meaning of a "natural born citizen." Republican...

    With Ted Cruz the victor of the first contest of the GOP nominating calendar, we can no longer avoid the question mischievously posed by Donald Trump: Is Cruz ineligible to be president? Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father. The Constitution says that only a “natural born citizen” can be president. Is Cruz a natural born citizen? (You may recall that before he attacked Cruz on this front, Trump spent months flogging a ludicrous version of this critique against President Obama, who was actually born in the United States, unlike Cruz.) The words natural...

    The Illinois Board of Elections of Monday ruled on a birther challenge to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's eligibility to be on the Illinois March 15th primary ballot. The board said that, "Further discussion on this issue is unnecessary." As they rejected the challenge, as well as another separate challenge against Sen. Marco Rubio. Popular Grove lawyer Lawrence Joyce brought the challenge, he was one of the lawyers representing people in 2008 and into 2009 seeking to have Barack Obama disqualified from serving as President using the same birther arguments that were made against Cruz. Those birther challenges against President Obama...

    It appears that the attorney who filed the so-called "birther" lawsuit "in pro se" against Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Newton B. Schwartz, Sr., has some ethical and legal issues of his own. In documents obtained from the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania court system, an attorney by the same name was "suspended on consent" from practice in 2015 by the State of Pennsylvania for "engaging in the unauthorized practice of law" in the state of Louisiana - a state where he was not licensed to practice.

    It is critical for U.S. citizens to understand the meaning of the Constitution’s term “natural born citizen” when choosing a prospective Commander-in-Chief. The candidate must be free from all possibility of foreign loyalties through either his or her parentage or place of birth. Why is the adoption of a narrow interpretation of “natural born citizen” essential to the future of our nation? If it is sufficient for a person to have only one U.S. citizen parent in order to be considered a “natural born” citizen, then dual citizens could become President, including dual citizens of countries hostile to the United...

    (snip) The problem is not, as some commentators have claimed, a legal doctrine known as "standing" -- a rule that requires that a person who comes to court must have a proper legal interest at stake in the litigation. Rather, the biggest barrier is a principle of judicial restraint known as "the political question doctrine." A key idea underlying this doctrine is that the Constitution itself, in its text or spirit, sometimes takes a certain sort of constitutional question away from ordinary courts and makes some other decision-maker the real judge -- a special court for a special question.

    Mark Levin has spent years defending the Constitution, his radio show bumpers refer to him as "Mr. Constitution". In his view, the constitutional debates and the views of the founding fathers should determine its meaning. Levin has abandoned this standard in his defense of Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for President. This is evident in at least two ways - ignoring the founders' intentions and arguments, and suggesting that there are only two types of citizenship: naturalized and natural born. Levin revisits this issue with exasperation every day, knocking Mr. Trump and others for discussing it. Last week he referred...

"When you run for president of the United States, any question is fair game. So let the people decide," Branstad told reporters on Monday during a weekly press briefing, according to The Des Moines Register. Canada-born Cruz has said that the legal case for his eligibility is clear based on his mother's U.S. birth, and he released his mother's birth certificate on Friday. Branstad has vowed to stay neutral in the Feb. 1 caucuses. But those close to him say...

Cruz, born in Canada to an American citizen mother and a Cuban father, is an American citizen by birth, according to U.S. law. But Trump suggested there might be a question of whether Cruz meets the constitutional requirement that the president be a "natural born citizen," and that the issue could be tied up in litigation, thus creating a problem for Republicans if Cruz were to be the party's nominee.

    The Obama campaign says its candidate is a victim of smears -- and has even created a Web site to fight such attacks. But a Newsmax investigation finds many of the so-called smears are largely based in truth -- and the Obama campaign uses half-truths, clever language and ad hominem attacks to spin the facts. Obamas focuses mainly on anti-Obama messages being repeated on the Internet and talk radio, the only media where Obama ideological allies are not dominant. These smears and the Obama rebuttals are often framed in lawyerly language that leaves much wiggle room in the candidates...

Well snap out of it and get up, because that's exactly what you'll hear if you watch the video above. Josh "Voice of an angel" Groban himself was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night to introduce his highly anticipated new album "Donald Trump Tweets" --- the follow-up to his 2011 chart-topper "The Best Tweets of Kanye West." ...

  • 4 Simple Questions

    4 Simple Questions ..... 1. Back in 1961 people of color were called 'Negroes. So how can the Obama 'birth certificate' state he is "African-American" when the term wasn't even used at that time ? 2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama's birth as August 4, 1961 and Lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, Right? At the time of Obama's birth, it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in "Kenya, East Africa". This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the fact...

    Mediaite ^ | July 23, 2015 | Joe Arpaio Jake Tapper
    CNNs Jake Tapper confronted Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio this afternoon over his (and Donald Trumps) refusal to give up the preposterous notion that President Obama wasnt born in the United States and that his birth certificate was forged. He asked Arpaio why he would risk his credibility on issues like immigration by sticking by this conspiracy theory. Arpaio said, I dont care where he came from, were working on a fraudulent, forged government document. An incredulous Tapper asked Arpaio if any respectable law enforcement official agrees with him on this. Arpaio boasted that hes willing to look into something that...
  • Trump Resurrects Birther Issue; A lot Of People Don't Believe Obama Birth Certificate Real

    Donald Trump sat down with Obama's NBC News' Katy Tur and was asked why people should believe his numbers on illegal immigration when he led the birther movement and sent investigators out to Hawaii to investigate whether Obama was not born here. Watch Tur press Trump over the issue pleading that Obama released his birth certificate. Trump fired back: "According to you it's not true. If you believe that, that's fine. ... A lot of people don't agree with you on that..."

    The Washington Times ^ | June 26, 2015 | L. Todd Wood
    Lately, I've noticed a new trend coming out of the Russian media and press releases from the Kremlin. The new narrative seems to be saying that the United States should stop lecturing other countries on foreign policy and foreign engagements because all you have to do is look at Iraq and Libya to see the American result chaos. And you know what? They're right. As an American, it sickens me to see the complete waste of blood and treasure in Iraq. Libya is just a side-show, an add-on, but just a pathetic. Iraq was a stable democracy when handed...

    Is there anything about the POS that isn’t fake? (See “Obama’s entire life is a lie“) Fake birth certificate. Fake military draft (Selective Service) registration. A fake female as wife. Add fake family photos to the list. 1. Pic of Obama and his grandparents You’ve probably all seen that picture of Obama seated between his maternal grandparents Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, supposedly taken in Central Park sometime in the early 1980s while the Dunhams were visiting Obama when he was a student at Columbia University. The photo was among other family photos of Obama which were released by his presidential...

    Apparent fingernails mismatch reveals Barack Obama airport family photos are likely digital creations A 1776 Channel investigation has concluded that the airport family gathering portrayed in these images of Barack Obama Sr.s Honolulu arrival or departure likely never happened. Both airport images appear to have been manufactured, perhaps to propel the official narrative of Barack Obamas family history as told in his memoir Dreams from My Father. Barack Obama Sr. is wearing the same suit and tie in both images, yet has completely different looking left hands. [...] Full report @ 1776 Channel.

    All News PipeLine had the opportunity of speaking with a former Barack Obama acquaintance, Mia Marie Pope, who knew Obama in between the 1977-1979 years in Hawaii, where she claims he was a "compulsive, pathological liar" even then, referring to him in the interview below and previous ones as "clinically insane," stating he not only had a drug habit but that he traded sex for drugs with a gay drug dealer named "gay-Ray." She delves into the sealing of Obama's records and the reasons why "flunky Barry" doesn't want the public to see them. Below we hear about her past...

    The further I travel down this rabbit hole, the more I feel divorced from the good conservative people that I choose to call my own. I hold some stories back from our readers. My thought is that people have a hard enough time embracing the basic fact that our government is ( corrupt on both sides of the aisle.) If you knew how corrupt I thought these people really were, I feel like you'd rush to the phone and soon bad men would show up to haul me off in a straitjacket.Do they still do that? Regardless, today I want...

    President Obamas Social Security numbers do not verify he even is a U.S. Citizen. A mismatch, two differing numbers at least, an imagined flight by a 15 year old from Hawaii to Connecticut to apply in person, and other anomalies are causing confusion yet again over the true identity of the man sitting in Americas Oval Office! A Notice of Mismatch on a Social Security Administration (SSA) Records form displays an incongruent match which was somehow sent to the President on 08/17/11. This mismatch refers to ss# 042-68-4425. The case verification number is 2011229111431GY. (1) The form contains a chilling...

    President Obama, keynote speaker at the 130th annual Gridiron event. President Obama took advantage of his unchallenged podium at the 130th annual Gridiron Club dinner to sideswipe the likes of Gov. Scott Walker, conservative former neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Fox News talking head Bill OReilly as well as those who question the truth about his birth certificate. Early in the presentation, Obama thanked Clarence Page, a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, for his years of friendship, saying they go way back, various media reported. And thats when Obama made his first snipe at those who still wonder at...
