  • Vanity -- Who I Suspect Will Be Trump's Choice for Republican VP

    No, I do not believe Trump's choice will be Gov. Pence of Indiana. Nor Newt, nor Christie -- not even a man. Yes, I do believe the proposed VP will be a woman. I suspect that Trump's VP running mate will be ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Why? Well, she is a natural born citizen, a real conservative, and she is ferocious contra liberals/progressives. In addition, she isn't on the list of speakers for the Cleveland Convention and she has been silent of late. She has had lots of experience in dealing with those demons from Hell (the MSM) and her...

    In the birther movement, Mr. Trump recognized an opportunity to connect with the electorate over an issue many considered taboo: the discomfort, in some quarters of American society, with the election of the nations first black president. He harnessed it for political gain, beginning his connection with the largely white Republican base that, in his 2016 campaign, helped clinch his partys nomination. The more Mr. Trump questioned the legitimacy of Mr. Obamas presidency, the better he performed in the early polls of the 2012 Republican field, springing from fifth place to a virtual tie for first. That frenzied period culminated...

    Seven years into Barack Obamas presidency, the scales may slowly be falling from the eyes of The New York Times. Could the truth about Americas red diaper baby President be starting to emerge? In a story about papers of his reported father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., the Times said that President Obama has shown no interest in the newly discovered documents, which included nearly two dozen of his fathers letters, his transcripts from the University of Hawaii and Harvard University, and references from professors, advisers and supporters.

    A Utah lawyer has appealed a lawsuit to the U.S. Supreme Court, alleging Republican presidential candidate Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is not a "natural born citizen" and therefore ineligible to become president. Legal scholars say there is virtually no chance the high court will consider the appeal, partly because they do not want to encourage a wave of similar suits. Cruz has faced questions about his eligibility to become president from his chief rival, Donald Trump. Cruz was born in Canada, though his mother is a U.S. citizen. The U.S. Constitution sets only a few standards for presidential eligibility. Candidates...

    The U.S. Constitution prohibits anyone except a "natural born citizen" from becoming President, though legal experts disagree as to whether or not that means they need to be born in the United States or simply be an American citizen at birth. Though they may quibble on the definition, most Americans don't think this long-standing rule should be changed to allow naturalized citizens to inhabit the Oval Office. According to a CBS News poll released Sunday, while 21% of Americans would favor changing the Constitution to allow people who aren't natural born U.S. citizens to become President, 75% would oppose such...

    The words natural born citizen, and their original meaning at the time that this constitutional clause was crafted, go a long way to answering this question. In founding-era America, like today, a person could be a citizen by virtue of birth on American territory; a citizen by virtue of a statute that granted citizenship to him at birth; a "naturalized" citizen, meaning one who entered the country as an alien but later obtained citizenship via a process determined by law; and a foreigner. A natural born citizen cannot be a foreigner. Foreigners are not citizens. A natural born citizen cannot...

But a Ted Cruz rally in Iowa last weekend featured something possibly unprecedented: guys dressed up as Royal Canadian Mounted Police. This was not a random choice of attire.

    Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution states: "No Person except a natural born Citizen ... shall be eligible to the Office of President." The original structure of the Constitution does suggest that "natural born" was meant to contain a geographic component of birth in the United States. The "Inhabitant" requirements for senators and representatives in Article I of the Constitution clearly were intended to be geographic. Since the qualifications stated for president contain no other obvious parallel geographic reference, it would seem the framers meant the "natural born" citizenship requirement for president to refer to those born...

Wagner asked a judge to declare that Cruz is not a natural born citizen in the suit filed in Salt Lake City on Friday. Wagner is representing himself and says he is a voter with an interest in determining whether Cruz is a legal presidential candidate. No hearings have been scheduled. Cruz was born to an American mother and Cuban father while they lived in Calgary....

    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.

    The plaintiff, Walter L. Wagner, asserts that Cruz is not natural born as defined by the Constitution because only one of Cruz's parents (his mother) was a U.S. citizen at his time of birth in Canada and because, he alleges, their intention at Cruz's birth was "to have residency or citizenship in a foreign (non-U.S.A.) country." ... In 2008, Wagner filed suit in federal court against the U.S. Department of Energy and European Center for Nuclear Energy Research (CERN), alleging that the Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator might create a black hole that could destroy Earth -- and that the...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “MediaBuzz,” while discussing the controversy over if his birth in Canada to an American citizen mother causes him to be not eligible to run for president of the United States, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz ..... no “actual voters” ask him about the issue.Cruz said, “We were in the midst of a bus tour, 26 counties in six days, enormous enthusiasm, but from what you look, looking at the media, it was a great field test. We would do, at pretty much every event, a press gaggle -by the way, a lot of other...
  • Cole: Coulter makes ridiculous claims on Cruz

    I usually enjoy reading Ann Coulter's columns thanks to her acerbic wit and gutsy grit. But, being human, she has flaws, among which is a penchant to suspend rationality when advocating for her flavor of the year in Republican presidential candidates. In past years, it was Chris Christie and Mitt Romney. Now, thanks mainly to his tough stance on immigration, it's Donald Trump. This infatuation has caused her to write some ridiculous things about the eligibility of Ted Cruz for the presidency. Her use of the term "naturalization" is, frankly, unworthy of her status as a law school graduate. A...

    Illinois Review ^ | January 23, 2016
    SPRINGFIELD - Donald Trump has threatened to initiate such a lawsuit, but he may have been beat to the punch - right here in Illinois. An objection to U.S. Senator Ted Cruz's qualifications to run for president on the Illinois Republican ballot could send shockwaves nationwide if it is sustained by the Illinois State Board of Elections next week. Lawrence J. Joyce, an attorney and practicing pharmacist from Poplar Grove, says Cruz is not a natural born citizen as the Constitution requires, but is instead "naturalized" citizen born in the Canadian province of Alberta in 1970. That disqualifies him from...

    Conservative talker Glenn Beck rallied Saturday with Sen. Ted Cruz, bestowing an endorsement in glowing terms and warning darkly of a future under Cruz's chief GOP rival, Donald Trump. "In 40 years of broadcast I have never endorsed any candidate.. I don't trust any of the weasels no matter how good they are," Beck said. But his support for Cruz was unabashed. "I have prayed for the next George Washington. I believe I have found him." A protester dressed as a Canadian Mountie held a sign "accusing" Sen. Ted Cruz of liking Nickelback, an oft-maligned Canadian grunge band. He and...

    A Republican attorney in Illinois, a supporter of Ben Carson, on Friday filed a motion with the Illinois State Board of Elections to have Sen. Ted Cruz's name removed from the official Republican primary ballot for the Illinois GOP presidential primary set for March 15. The legal challenge confirms fellow candidate Donald Trump's argument that the issue of eligibility to be president under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution will dog Cruz as the Texas senator pursues the GOP nomination for president, and possibly a subsequent White House bid. The motion from Lawrence J. Joyce, who makes his living...
