  • Ted Cruz is Not Qualified (Vanity)

    02/05/2016 11:33:35 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 209 replies
    Who is a natural-born citizen? Who, in other words, is a citizen at birth, such that that person can be a President someday?   The 14th Amendment defines citizenship this way: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” But even this does not get specific enough. As usual, the Constitution provides the framework for the law, but it is the law that fills in the gaps.   Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in those gaps. Section...

    Sometimes, the best way to figure out what politician will best serve your values and interests is to look at what those antithetical to your interests are trying to force upon you. In this election, the Leftist media and the decidedly non-conservative GOP are steering conservative voters either to Donald Trump or Marco Rubio. At the same time, they are using every available tactic to destroy Ted Cruz's candidacy. This should tell us something, and the something it tells us is that Ted Cruz should be the conservative candidate of choice. Let me start with the media's manipulations. To appreciate...

Russia will not tolerate crimes like the attack on the Russian Su-24 fighter jet shot down by Turkish AA-forces in Syrian skies, President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday at a meeting with King of Jordan Abdullah II.

"Moments ago, in a departure from the U.S. Supreme Court’s protection of the Little Sisters of the Poor last year, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit ruled that the Little Sisters must comply with the government’s HHS mandate. This mandate forces religious ministries to violate their faith or pay massive IRS penalties. The following statement can be attributed to Sr. Loraine Marie...

    Depending on the Iraqi government to act as a partner in the fight against the expansion of the Islamic State is not working, and it is time to go back to basics, Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass said Friday. The caliphate is not just verbiage; its real, Haass said on MSNBCs Morning Joe program. We have not had a strategy in Syria and the administration thought we had a strategy in Iraq, and I think what were seeing increasingly exposed is that we dont. Part of the problem is, Haass said, is that the borders irrelevant when...

    My biggest complaint against liberalism is that it exists in a utopian dream world in which the facts are largely ignored. Just some examples: On the social issues of abortion and homosexuality, the science is unambiguously against liberalism. Abortion takes the life of an innocent person. On homosexuality, there is no gay gene. Even so, marriage is not about love or rights of adults; it is about procreation and children. The evidence consistently points to children doing better in a home with a mom and a dad. And promiscuous anal sex, which is the norm in the gay lifestyle,...

    GENEVA (Reuters) - There has been no reverse in the trend of global warming and there is still consistent evidence for man-made climate change, the head of the U.N. World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said on Monday. A slow-down in the average pace of warming at the planet's surface this century has been cited by "climate skeptics" as evidence that climate change is not happening at the potentially catastrophic rate predicted by a U.N. panel of scientists. But U.N. weather agency chief Michel Jarraud said ocean temperatures, in particular, were rising fast, and extreme weather events, forecast by climate scientists, showed...

    Jordan's King Abdullah II reaffirmed his government's rejection of his father and grandfather's historic policy that "Jordan is Palestine" on Monday. "The so-called 'substitute homeland' exists only in the minds of the weak," Abdullah told reporters, stressing "the Jordanian option is an illusion. Jordan is Jordan, and Palestine is Palestine." Abdullah's comments come amid a row over his refusal to back the Palestinian Authority's unilateral bid for statehood at the United Nations and are likely intended to show 'solidarity' with PA officials, who have been angered over Amman's position. Analysts say, despite Jordan's couching its opposition in terms of concern...

The floral Barbara Tfank dress she wore to meet Middleton this week cost at least $2,000.

    The marching orders from Congress and the White House to NASA were pretty straightforward. Go out and build a new big rocket to replace the retiring space shuttle fleet. Unlike the shuttle, the new rocket has to be powerful enough to get out of low Earth orbit and carry humans to an asteroid and eventually Mars, perhaps even the moon. There must also be a test flight by 2016. But at this point, NASA officials are warning of a potentially devastating setback to future space exploration. Its first new rocket in 40 years may not happen because the agency doesn't
