Skip to comments.Dem congressman plays 'birther' card on Cruz (Alan Grayson hurl video)
Posted on 02/21/2014 7:40:53 AM PST by Seizethecarp
Since Ted Cruz is a Canadian and our Constitution requires an American to win, Im pretty sure its not going to be Ted Cruz, Grayson said.
The questions about Obama, however, linger as an ongoing, official law enforcement investigation has determined the birth certificate he released from the White House appears is a forgery.
The questions about Obamas eligibility, nevertheless, have been publicly ridiculed by everyone from the White House on down.
Grayson said Cruz represents the element of the Republican Party thats trying to hasten the apocalypse.
WND Founder and longtime news executive Joseph Farah, whose news organization has covered the dispute about Obamas eligibility, said in a column he was amazed that Democrats have raise the issue regarding Cruz.
I pointed out that the media are on a campaign to ensure Sen. Ted Cruz never gets a chance to run for president. Why? Because, they claim or infer, hes ineligible under the constitutional requirement to be a natural born citizen, Farah wrote.
Its amazing given the medias ridicule of those of us who posed the question and did six years of investigative work to try to determine Barack Obamas eligibility a question that has still not been answered, by the way, or even debated rationally on the facts we now know.
Farah said its precisely why it was so important to pay attention to the precedent Obama set by refusing to release his birth certificate for two years and then releasing one that was labeled fraudulent by the only law enforcement investigators who have examined it, as well as dozens of document experts.

ping to the vile Alan Grayson gleefully attacking Ted Cruz’s eligibility.
Note that, previously, IIRC, WND’s Farrah said he would not contest Cruz’s eligibility based on the precedent set by the certification of Barry’s election and by the forthrightness of Cruz regarding his birth circumstances (in contrast to ongoing deceptive behavior of Barry).
Good God, can’t Grayson’s driver just.. take one for the team?
You can bet that if Cruz is the nominee eligibility will suddenly become a big deal, whereas it was a non-issue in 2008 and 2012.
You know the Democrats will bring up the issue all day long. I admire the Democrats for only one thing, their tenacity. They have fire in the belly and go after what they want with both guns blazing, though everything they believe in is ruinous to the country. I miss the days when Newt and other congressmen were taking on Tip O’Neill in an empty house chamber. The GOP has no fight in them.
Grayson is off his meds again. Poor guy was a survivor of a botched abortion to start with and now look. He should go to North Korea and drown himself.
Here is the summary of why Farrah believes that unlike Cruz (whose birth facts and circumstances are clear) there are still multiple issues regarding Barry:
“Why Obama’s eligibility is still important”
“Exclusive: Joseph Farah counters claims he’s a ‘hypocrite’ when it comes to Ted Cruz”
So what was my beef?
One problem has always been, and remains today, that we dont know where he was born because he has never released an unchallenged birth certificate.
A second problem remains that even if the birth certificate is accurate and authentic, it still leaves open the question of his natural born citizen status because it states his father was a Kenyan citizen, unable to confer natural born citizen status on his son.
A third problem is that his listed mother was unable to confer that status on her son because she was a minor too young. She hadnt lived as a citizen in the country long enough. She later left for Indonesia and took her son with her to Indonesia where he was adopted by an Indonesian citizen.
So the question remains, even without an uncontested birth certificate, how did Obama become a natural born citizen?
Just to list a few. They all say e is eligible. Why? Because if he is delcared eligible then it make Zippo eligible.
They preemptively hit out at any Conservative that hits the ‘tone’, presidential-contender or not.
The ‘machine’ at work...
“They all say he is eligible.”
Not from what I see. I see a lot of pointed questioning designed to put doubts in people’s minds.
I see the MSM as being “secure in the knowledge” that Barry was born in HI to a US citizen mom, circumstances that have been twice litigated in the electoral college to affirm eligibility for Barry (assuming those disputed facts are true).
Thanks for help (the vid...Grayson has the opposite effect on me...throne time...)
And we have Hannity, Beck, Rush, and I think even Levin, all saying he is! I am dumbfounded. We have been screaming what an NBC is for 7 years and you are going to tell me none of them heard it?
“And we have Hannity, Beck, Rush, and I think even Levin, all saying he is! I am dumbfounded. We have been screaming what an NBC is for 7 years and you are going to tell me none of them heard it?”
Very True. They are terrified of anything staining their credibility. (scaring their sponsors). “Birther” issue comes up and they collectively close their eyes, plug their ears, and holler La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La.......
A felony, by the way. But islamists and their cohorts are essentially free from any prosecution.
Democrats WILL attack Cruz with the so called “birther” issue, as everyone should. In fact HE should do the right thing and clearly state that he is not eligible to the office and will not run for it.
If he believes in the Constitution, he should stand up for it, even when it affects his career. Are you telling me that when Cruz decided to enter politics, that it never occurred to him that the fact he was born in CANADA wouldn’t someday be a problem? OF COURSE IT DID.
What is more important to him, his career or the Constitution of the United States?
We will see what kind of man he really is. I hope he doesn’t disappoint me, as I have the greatest respect for him and think he is vital in our fight to save America. This can be done from many positions, not just the oval office.
If Cruz runs for POTUS then expect the Dems and RINOs and their media darlings to morph into born-again Birthers.
If it’s ok for Obama it’s ok for Ted Cruz two can play that game.
Kind of dumb on Grayson’s part since the Democrats don’t even need to bring up any questions about Cruz’s citizenship. There are enough Republicans who will do that for them.
Marxists work to undermine and weaken our definitions with regard to our language, borders and culture.
With obama vs McCain, they have scored a major victory undermining the Constitution's NBC definition and eligibility requirement, even our views on immigration/citizenship, just as they are doing with our definition of marriage.
Words mean things until they don't and when they don't we have confusion and chaos. Marxists love the confusion and chaos they create by diluting and undermining our language and all that flows from it. It's one of their favorite tactics and works extraordinarily well against US.
We would do well to tighten up and purify our definitions and standards about who and what we are, not dilute them on our way to transforming our nation and society.
