  • Cullman GOP quiet as locals file ‘birther’ suit against Ted Cruz (Alabama)

    The Cullman Times ^ | February 7, 2016 | Benjamin Bullard
    The local GOP isn't choosing sides on whether U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is qualified to seek his party's presidential nomination -- at least, not right now. Why's that important? Because, according to a Friday report at al.com, a handful of Cullman County residents has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that Cruz, by virtue of his Canadian birth to a mother who is a U.S. citizen, is not a "natural born" U.S. citizen and is, therefore, not legally qualified to run for the presidency. The suit, a copy of which al.com said it received Friday from the Drake Law Firm...

    London Telegraph ^ | February 5th, 2016 | reasonmclucus
    Those who think Sen. Ted Cruz can be elected to a job he isn’t eligible for are ignoring the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. If Republicans make the mistake of nominating Cruz for President of the United States, Democrats in California and other states will challenge his eligibility. There’s at least a 90% probability the 9th Circuit Court in San Francisco would rule him ineligible because he is a naturalized citizen rather than a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution.

    <p>BOSTON (AP) — Two legal scholars squared off in a public debate on Friday to settle whether Republican Ted Cruz is eligible to become president. Spoiler alert: They didn't settle it.</p> <p>But the debate at Harvard Law School underscored that conflicting interpretations of the U.S. Constitution can produce different answers. The question has been in the national spotlight since Republican rival Donald Trump suggested that Cruz, who was born in Canada to an American mother, isn't legally qualified to be president.</p>

    The United States Constitution requires presidents to be “natural born citizens”. The original Constitution doesn’t define “natural born citizen”, but the 14th Amendment states there are two categories of U.S. citizens: those who are born in the United States and those who are naturalized under Acts of Congress.

    If Ted Cruz is a “natural-born citizen,” eligible to be president, what was all the fuss about Obama being born in Kenya? No one disputed that Obama’s mother was a U.S. citizen.Cruz was born in Canada to an American citizen mother and an alien father. If he’s eligible to be president, then so was Obama — even if he’d been born in Kenya.As with most constitutional arguments, whether or not Cruz is a “natural-born citizen” under the Constitution apparently comes down to whether you support Cruz for president.

    After he left Wall Street to enter politics eight years ago, Representative Jim Himes, Democrat of Connecticut, began fielding the occasional question of when he intended to run for president. "It has come up in jest any number of times," said Mr. Himes, who always has his answer ready. "There could be constitutional questions." Mr. Himes, you see, was born in Peru in 1966 while his father worked for the Ford Foundation. That makes him one of at least 17 current members of Congress who, because of their birth outside the United States, could run afoul of the Constitution's "natural...

Noting that the Iowa caucuses are just weeks away, the attorney asks the court to expedite the case as quickly as possible.

    If you thought some in the conservative media lost their minds over President Obama's birth certificate, you were right. But the current brouhaha over Ted Cruz's place of birth -- in which Donald Trump reprises his role as chief instigator -- might be even more compelling, in its own way, because of the civil war it has sparked on the right side of the press. Sadly, there is no way that Ted Cruz can continue running in the Republican Primary unless he can erase doubt on eligibility. Dems will sue!-- Donald J.

    But some have still wondered if Trump can be considered a “natural born citizen” as the Constitution requires since his mother, Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, was born in Stornoway, Scotland, thus giving her British citizenship at her birth in 1912. Donald’s father, real-estate mogul Frederick Christ Trump, was an American by birth in New York City in 1905. Columnist Ben Smith at Politico jokingly wrote, “Trump’s mother, it should be noted, was born in Scotland, which is not part of the United States. His plane is registered in the Bahamas, also a foreign country. This fact pattern – along with...

    Questions about Cruz's eligibility have everything to do with interpretation of the law; the questions about Obama's eligibility had everything to do with a dispute over the underlying facts - more specifically, conspiracy theories about whether the president was born in the United States, as he claimed, and whether he somehow forged a birth certificate that said he was born in Hawaii. In Cruz's case, nobody is disputing the underlying facts of the case - that Cruz was born in Canada to a Cuban father and a mother who was a U.S. citizen. As we wrote in March 2013, that...

    During the fallout from her use of a personal email account, Hillary Clinton has attempted to downplay her working relationship with Sidney Blumenthal, but emails released last week show that the two met at her State Department office in 2012. Blumenthal has proved a thorn in the Democratic presidential candidate's side. The former journalist, who worked as an aide in the Bill Clinton White House, frequently emailed Clinton intelligence that he had gleaned from undisclosed sources. In many cases, Blumenthal was advancing the business interests of companies for which he was working. In other emails, Blumenthal would email Clinton political...

    Twice in those bow-tied comedy dinner routines before a crowd of journalists, President Obama lambasted Donald Trump. He joked in 2011 that Trump, who was hot on the trail of Obama's birth certificate, was a conspiracy theorist waiting to reveal the fake moon landing, then roasted him for making the hard decisions — like firing Gary Busey instead of Lil' Jon or Meatloaf on Celebrity Apprentice. Just eight months ago, Obama joked that Trump was "here. Still." That got big laughs. But it's Trump's supporters who are laughing now. That's because Trump has stuck around a lot longer than anyone...

In a 40-page written ruling, Snow said the basis for the claims made in May by the Maricopa County sheriff and his chief deputy Gerard Sheridan were legally insufficient and untimely and that the case should proceed, including civil contempt hearings. Snow, who has repeatedly expressed...

    New York (CNN)Donald Trump is standing his ground. The billionaire businessman was unapologetic -- and as defiant as ever -- about a number of controversies that have inundated his presidential campaign in a wide-ranging interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper that aired on Wednesday and Thursday. The brash real estate mogul and former host of the reality TV show, "The Apprentice," has come under attack for referring to some immigrants coming into the United States as "rapists." Trump also addressed head-on a Washington Post report that said there were illegal immigrants working at one of Trump's hotel construction sites in Washington....

    Yahoo ^ | 6/29/2015 | K. Couric
    Ted Cruz continued his verbal assault on last weeks historic Supreme Court decisions on Monday, saying the justices who ruled in favor of Obamacare and gay marriage rewrote the Constitution. They joined a team, they put on bright-blue Obama jerseys and they rewrote the law, the U.S. senator from Texas told Yahoo News Katie Couric during a live sit-down interview from Yahoos New York City studios. Those decisions are a threat to our democracy. Cruz slammed Chief Justice John Roberts, who wrote the majority opinion in the Obamacare case on behalf of what the 2016 Republican presidential hopeful called five...

    TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Who do you think started the birther movement against Obama? You know the birther movement, the claim that Obama was not born in Hawaii, that he was rather born in some Muslim country somewhere. And that he was not qualified, according to the Constitution, to be president, 'cause he's not born of American parents anywhere, and he was not born in the United States. Who started that movement? (interruption) Well, you're pretty damn close. It was Hillary Clinton that started the movement. It was the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008 that started the movement. That whole thing was...

    Faded, former-media darling Katie Couric hosted Republican Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for a full-hour to discuss a wide range of issues Monday. The left-wing anchor, who is now perched at a place called Yahoo!, introduced Cruz as a historic candidate potentially the first American president to be born in Canada. Later in the interview, she questioned Cruz on his citizenship. The look on Courics smug face when he correctly reminded her that it was the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008 that birthed the anti-Obama Birther movement, is priceless. It all starts at right around the 25 minute mark....

    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 Barack Obama secretly a white person like Rachel Dolezal?

    American Thinker ^ | June 15, 2015
    Now that we know that race is a state of mind, rather than a genetic inheritance, the question must be asked: is Barack Obama secretly a white man? Perhaps, like Rachel Dolezal, he tells people that he is black, but he is actually white. Again, black is an attitude, a state of mind. Sure, it helps if you braid your hair into long ropes and tie it on top of your head like Dolezal did, or have an afro during your pot- and cocaine-using days like Obama. But what really counts is what is going on inside your mind. And...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)s Americas Liberty Super PAC is out with a new ad attacking Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as a Canadian who supports President Obama on domestic surveillance extensions in the Patriot Act. The extreme-style smackdown ad features Paul as the shirtless hero of a Sunday brawl in the Senate over the NSA and the right to privacy. Featuring a picture of Cruz with Obama and the backdrop of a Canadian flag, the ad calls the Texas Senator a capitulating Canadian who is backing Baracks bill. Technically, the ad is not endorsed by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)'s campaign, but...

    This should not even be an issue any longer, but there are still some out there who didn't get the legal memo. First, some history: The origins of the Natural Born Citizenship Clause date back to a letter John Jay (who later authored several of the Federalist Papers and served as our first chief justice) wrote to George Washington, then president of the Constitutional Convention, on July 25, 1787. At the time, as Justice Joseph Story later explained in his influential Commentaries on the Constitution, many of the framers worried about ambitious foreigners who might otherwise be intriguing for the...

    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...
