    Towards the end of his speech late Monday afternoon at the Peoria Civic Center Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was interrupted by a protester carrying a Donald Trump sign who yelled multiple times "Go back to Canada" at the leading opposition candidate to Trump.. Cruz told the man that he appreciated his being there and his freedom of speech and told the birther protester "You see sir one difference between this and a Donald Trump rally is I am not asking anyone to punch you in the face." Security escorted the man from the event. The Trump protesters outburst drew massive...

    The New York Daily News ^ | February 18, 2016 | Barbara Ross
    Donald Trump's threatened to sue Ted Cruz to keep him off the ballot because of his Canadian roots -- but two New Yorkers have beat him to the punch. The pair filed papers in Manhattan Supreme Court Thursday asking the court to order Cruz off the ballot in the the New York State Republican Presidential primaries, arguing he's ineligible to run because he was born in Canada. Cruz has insisted that he is qualified to be President because any child born abroad to an American citizen gets American citizenship automatically. When Cruz was born in Canada in 1970, his mother...

    A day after the latest Republican primary presidential debate, real estate mogul Donald Trump did two things: he gave himself a pat on the back for skipping the debate and also gloated at the pile-on on Sen. Ted Cruz. "I think we're going to do really well in Iowa. We're leading in the Iowa polls. And Cruz is in the second place. He got really pummeled last night. I'm glad I wasn't there. And they didn't even mention that he was born in Canada," Trump said at a speech at the Radisson Hotel here in Nashua on Friday morning. "So...

    It's hard to see this as anything but pure spite towards Cruz, of which there's plenty in Paulworld, for surpassing him as the "conservatarian" choice in the primary. In theory, I guess, raising enough doubt about Cruz's eligibility could cause some libertarians and "constitutionalists" to run away from Cruz and back to Paul, but how much is that worth to Paul? Five percent, maybe? He goes from an also-ran in the low single-digits to an also-ran in the high single-digits while potentially tipping the race to in Iowa to Trump, the least libertarian candidate in the race. And meanwhile Paul...

    Any political issue is exactly as serious as the media decides to treat it. There have been a lot of changes in the influence of the media over the last 30 years, but that is still more or less the truth - even the stories that were pushed by blogs and alternative media only became stories when the media were effectively shamed into covering them. Questions about Obama's eligibility for President were not a serious news story because the media made the a priori decision to make fun of anyone who raised them. As we noted this morning, look at...

Here’s el Trumpo back in September telling ABC News that ALL the lawyers said Cruz could run legally:

    The Blaze ^ | January 3, 2016 | Kaitlyn Schallhorn, weekend editor
    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's personality could be a hinderance to his campaign, fellow GOP presidential contender Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said on Sunday. During an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Paul criticized Cruz's handling of disagreements with leadership -- referencing the time Cruz called Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) a liar from the Senate floor. Paul said that unlike Cruz, he is able to keep his arguments with leadership to a professional level. "I've given 10-hour speeches, 13-hour speeches without calling anybody names, but talking about the history of our country, the importance of the Bill of Rights, the importance...

    Two Hispanics, a diminutive Libertarian and a Donald loomed large in the fifth and thankfully, last Republican debate of 2015. The amigo Senators Rubio and Cruz stole the night "insulting" each other in what can only be described as a full-on duel between the sole Hispanics running. This was also the first time Senator Rand Paul had some strong moments, while Trump sustained his triumphant position with even more verbal firepower. Rubio vs Cruz "And you know, there was one commentator that put it this way that, for Marco to suggest our record's the same is like suggesting ‘the fireman...

Jeb Bush invoked the names of two rivals for the Republican presidential nomination as he waded into the debate over birthright citizenship and immigration on Thursday, saying that Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida might not be able to run for president if some in the conservative wing of the Republican Party had their way. In response to a question at a restaurant here Thursday about the 14th Amendment, which allows children born in the United States to become citizens regardless of the legal status of their parents, Mr. Bush said, The...

    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...

Ted Cruz laughed off his starring role as a Capitulating Canadian, dressed up in fighting clothes, in the first attack ad of the 2016 presidential campaign launched by a U.S. Sen. Rand Paul super PAC and vowed not to retaliate against his Kentucky rival. Well, I have to say I chuckled. Ive never seen myself portrayed as a World Wrestling Federation person, even though I guess it was one that I was not supposed to win, Cruz told the Herald after a town hall event at Franklin Pierce University last night.

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is the man Im enthusiastically (yes, I said enthusiastically) supporting for president in 2016. Cruz has the most consistently conservative record of all the candidates who have announced or are being discussed today. Not one of the mostTHE most consistently conservative. While some Republicans just talk about opposing the Leftist agenda, and some Republicans actually help protect and advance the Leftist agenda, it was Ted Cruz who was going to the mat and trying to stop it, like he did with the effort to defund ObamaCare before that unholy mess got started two years ago.

Ted Cruz must clear up legal doubts about his own eligibility due to his birth outside the United States. Its a problem. It could be a difficult problem, but he admits that he was born in Canada, Trump told reporters in Iowa on the eve of the first major gathering of 2016 presidential hopefuls. Hes a friend of mine. I have great respect for him. But certainly its a stumbling block and hes going to...

    He may be a right-wing nut, but the Texas senator can beat a Democrat in a general election. Here's why Theres been some more buzz this week about Ted Cruzs presidential prospects. The demagoguing senator took his first trip to Iowa just six months after being sworn in to office, and hes pretty clearly reaching for the White House. Early reports are that its going well. And Rich Yeselson wrote a high-profile (and fascinating) essay arguing that, basically, Cruz is perfectly positioned for reaching the top of the Republican ticket. The focus of this piece is on Cruzs general election...

    WASHINGTON Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born. Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say. That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag pull out his Calgary, Alberta,...
