    Yes but not so much as to boost Independent voter registrations among the entire electorate from 24% in 2012 to 42% in 2014. What caused that historical shift is a mass of new voter registrations of people that hadn’t voted in a long time or never at all. Suddenly they became concerned enough to get in the game. Only the GOPe has let them down. But they will vote for Cruz because he stands up against the GOPe.

    It’s important to understand that Ted Cruz is seen as an independent type of republican. In fact Ted Cruz could win as an Independent.

    Ted Cruz is right on target. He knows a great swath of the American population that is eligible to vote are sitting home disgusted and demoralized. His ‘Imagine’ speech (a fantastic speech) aimed squarely at rekindling enthusiasm among Christians who have sat out of elections by the millions in the last decade.

    Many American conservative voters turned out in the last election but they were not so much republican as they were registered independents.

    He got 40% last time he ran for office.

    US Citizen Latino voters are distrustful of the Republican Party and will vote for a democrat overwhelmingly UNLESS there is also a Latino on the opposing ticket. Then they tend to drift over sometimes significantly to the opposition to the democrats. For example, Governor Martinez of NM.

    So Latinos tend to vote Latino first.

    For those that understand the Latino culture, then you understand that to do anything against the culture requires an ‘excuse’. If Hillary is on the ticket and Raphael ‘Ted’ Cruz is on the ticket, there’s all the excuse that is needed.

    SEIU will boost Latinos and illegals to vote Hillary or whoever is on the democrat ticket. But voting against a fellow Latino in favor of an insipid Hillary like candidate will leave Latinos staying home; demoralized by democrat promises never kept. Latinos that are not in the SEIU culture will vote for Ted Cruz. Suppressed turnout for Hillary leaves a larger percentage voting for Cruz.

    These observations are backed up by recent facts on the gournd such as the mammoth fight over Executive Amnesty and the recent push by Obama to ‘force’ voter registration. Keep in mind if one is registered to vote, then it is public record if that registered voter has voted or not.

    But he got 40% of the Latino vote when he ran for office in Texas.

    He should get near 50% of the US Citizen Latino vote in 2016 as long as illegals are not given amnesty and then registered to vote.

    Ted has more than just the GOP base in his column.

    He also has a substantial majority of Independents who now make up an astonishing 42% of the electorate.

    He also has the Reagan Democrats, the Perot Demographic and near half of US Citizen Latinos.

    By every careful, restrained and realistic calculation that errs to the negative, Ted Cruz will receive at least 53% to 54% of the popular vote, as long as millions of illegal aliens are not amnestied and registered to vote.

    The Electoral College Map is different. There the democrats have a built-in advantage but it can be and must be overcome. The political war rooms will be fighting tooth and nail for every last critical district in battleground states.

    I was just commenting the other day that this could be a real big story undisclosed because it’s controlled by the very media that is involved.

    The untold story stems from factual observations that in the years 2009 and 2010, the years of the bailouts, major media organizations, especially print media, came to Washington looking for a bailout. Remember that?

    What can we infer from the above observations? We know the media was struggling, especially the liberal media. We know they complained about tech changes and internet competition.

    From the other side, pretend you are an official inside the Obama Administration, and here comes to you executives from some of the top news organizations in the country, and they’re asking where they can get some of that free money being passed out.

    And then we observe how slavish the media has become since regarding all things Obama.

    My example the other day was MSNBC. This is a big time money loser. Yet they’ve been propped up throughout their exisitence, why? Is General Electric or Microsoft impervious to perpetual money loss over time with no upside? No, they are not. So it’s a safe guess to think there’s money coming from somewhere to keep GE and Microsoft funneling funds to MSNBC.

    The outrage is missing because the spying infrastructure is used to target high profile individuals for compliance with an agenda. For example, Petraeus, likely Roberts and most likely Judge Andrew Hanen or judges in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

    The results are felt by the public in an angst of realization that Congress is no longer much of a representative body. We among the public don’t feel anything for General Petraeus but we do feel insecurity by the response in Benghazi. We feel less secure with many events but we don’t have empathy for high profile individuals caught in the traps of the agenda driven spying.

    So we are not yet raging over this spying but that doesn’t mean we won’t be at sometime in the future. In fact we can bet there will eventually be an outrage when the downside of this activity is finally realized, and it will be in due time.

    > “...both parents are to be born natural born citizens...”

    Not accurate. They needed only be citizens, not necessarily natural born.

    Further, the mother needed not even be a citizen at the time of marriage to her US citizen husband. She automatically became a US citizen when she married a US Citizen.

    See post #27 above for more explanation.

    > “Natural born citizen issue. Which of his parents was Canadian? I can see Canada issuing a certificate of birth – that only makes sense. If my child was born in a foreign country while we are there working or visiting, that doesn’t change the fact that one or both or the child’s parents are American citizens.. Was there Canadian citizenship applied for by his parents that we don’t know about? Not from what I have been able to gather. A country cannot take a child and keep it as far as I know. Mom is an American citizen, and Dad was trying to gain citizen status in the US. I think this is a non-issue.”

    Ted Cruz never embraced his status as a Canadian citizen which was conferred on him at birth by simply being born on Canadian soil and never by request of his parents. To remove any doubt as to his allegiance to the United States he formally renounced his Canadian citizenship last year.

    HISTORY

    Madison settled the question more than 200 years ago. In that time if a child was born of an American citizen father with a ***domicile*** in the United States, the child was a natural born citizen. Now because of women’s suffrage and the 14th Amendment, the citizenship status of a child’s mother also confers citizenship as well as from the father.

    An American’s wife at the time of Madison was not allowed the right to vote and was folded in with her husband in terms of nationality and culture. In other words it was the man and his ***domicile*** that determined whether natural born citizenship was conferred.

    The term ‘domicile’ is distinct from ‘residence’ (more on this below).

    When early Americans were sailing the seas or residing abroad, they were considered loyal to the United States if they maintained a ‘domicile’ INSIDE the United States. They could ‘reside’ abroad but maintain a ‘domicile’ inside the United States. For example, Thomas Jefferson resided in Paris as the US Ambassador while maintaining his ‘domicile’ in Virginia at Monticello.

    The parents of Ted Cruz ‘resided’ in Canada for work purposes but kept their ‘domicile’ in the USA. The distinction is not trivial or trumped up. It’s a legal distinction that is on the books of many states in regards to marriage and divorce. For example, in New York, if one American and one European marry in Manhattan and then leave to live in Europe and later one of them returns to Manhattan and files for annulment of the marriage, the Court in Manhattan will have jurisdiction if the American maintained a ‘domicile’ (which is defined clearly in New York law) in New York during their time in Europe. Maintaining a domicile could be shown by simply maintaining a postal address for receiving postal mail.

    The question came to Madison as to how to determine citizenship for children born at sea. This was not a rare event as many ocean voyages lasted weeks and months. Further, if an American and his family were stationed abroad such as employed in the Foreign Service like a consulate or embassy, then children born abroad of a citizen father were considered natural born.

    The natural born requirement originated in correspondence and communication between John Jay and General George Washington. Jay was concerned that Presidents as Commanders-in-Chief would be capable of establishing a tyranny on the people using the Army. The proposal was to ensure ALLEGIANCE and LOYALTY by requiring children to be natural born meaning born to a citizen father and citizen mother. Dual citizenship was never an option in that era. Mothers were expected to fold in with their husbands as to allegiance, loyalty, citizenship, residence and domicile.

    A mother needed not be a natural citizen or even a citizen at the time of her marriage to an American. As soon as she married a US citizen she automatically became a US citizen. Even if she was native Indian, German, English, French etc. she at once became a US citizen through marriage to a US Citizen. Dual citizenship was never an option and divorce was extremely rare so there wasn’t much confusion or conflict as to a married woman’s status.

    In light of the 14th Amendment and its abuses, the US Supreme Court and Congress must weigh in at some point to clarify issues of ALLEGIANCE and LOYALTY which are the underlying issues of the term ‘natural born’.

    We now have a President whose allegiance and loyalty are questioned. And we have a foreign born candidate whose allegiance and loyalty are above reproach. It’s time for our best jurists, historians and philosophers to work at shining a light in this current era of divorce, independence of women, dual citizenship, ease of migration, fast long distance travel and so on, to determine what eligibility criteria can ensure with high confidence the characteristics of ALLEGIANCE and LOYALTY in a President, how these criteria may define ‘natural born citizen’ and how to ensure these characteristics of ALLEGIANCE and LOYALTY are successfully transmitted across generations.

    I have read and I pray it is true that if Judge Hanen grants the motion for discovery, which is the same as ordering an investigation, that the Appeals Court will hold off on any request from the Justice Department lawyers while the investigation is ongoing.

    I pray that it is true that the Appellate Judge who signed the order for the hearing in April did so for the sole reason to show respect for the Justice Department and not because of political pressure.

    Because an order for discovery from the district court is not yet before the Appeals Court, I pray their action to set a hearing in April is simply to show they are unbiasd.

    I am trying to se a silver lining in this.

    If the Appeals Court had denied the Justice Department their request to expedite, could the Justice Department then file with the Supreme Court? If so, then this action at least keeps it in the Appeals Court. I am not confident of anything these days with the Supreme Court. Robert is the biggest disappointment ever to strict construction. He is an appeaser at best and seems compromised.

    What now needs to be done is a detailed motion for discovery and quick action to find the unclean hands within the Administration. The preliminary findings should dominate the news cycle to the extent that any possible political pressure on Appellate Judges of the 5th Circuit will be quelled.

    Damn Boehner and McConnell for they had the opportunity to make all these court actions moot. They needed only to represent the will of the American people but they didn’t. That lack of representation is also a very scary reality to face. I’m not sure what can be done now with respect to Congress.

    Whatever is done, this is the end game. And its importance is so astounding that is may require and justify its own hard ball tactics. The 26 states and others that are too meek to join in are up against Chicago mob culture. Pray they be as wise as serpents and pray God’s divine intervention continue to be there for the Plaintiffs and for all Americans.

    Don’t worry Aleksandra.

    Many American Christians remember that atrocity as well.

    And we are still fighting what caused it here at home.

    What caused it was a phone call to Hillary Clinton in Morocco while she was doing her Africa ‘listening tour’. The phone call said that Milosevich was not listening and not ‘complying’. The phone call came from feminist Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, one of the stooges that Hillary placed in the Administration by her self-appointed authority as Co-President.

    When Albright told Hillary that this man Milosevich would not do what he was told by her to do, Hillary responded:

    “BOMB THEM!”

    And the homosexual General Wesley Clark was immediately put in charge of the carpet bombing of Kosovo and Serbia.

    So Aleksandra, tell your friends to not hate America for America is born of God. Instead tell them to help us fight the cretins who have lied and coerced their way to power in America. Tell them to stand with us in 2016 to elect Ted Cruz as President.

    This dark period of history for America, this too will pass.

    And he’s not a know-it-all. For example, he admitted that he did not know all the details of the Iran deal except for those that were leaked. And he criticized Obama for not working with Congress directly. So when he does not know everything he falls back on the Constitution and blames Obama which is absolutely true and appropriate.

    I think there’s a much larger story here that has never been disclosed.

    The old media was failing financially in 2008. Many of their business models simply could not survive the tech changes and internet competition.

    I remember media giants going hat in hand to Obama asking for a bailout in 2009 and 2010.

    And I think the story is they got their bailout with conditions.

    For example, there is no reason MSNBC should exist if business fundamentals were observed. They are a huge money loser. And I think their ‘subsidy’ is ending. It is interesting that only now they are discussing the notion of having conservative voices on their shows.

    I suspect there are some Solyndra type deals in the background that haven’t been reported. I’ll bet that’s where the real story is about the sycophant media.

    I’m not sure I agree with the part that the connection must be personal, not digital.

    For example, I respect and connect with Amazon.com to purchase some things. Of course there is no personal connection.

    But on a family level, there is a need to be personal and perhaps extend that personal connection beyond the immediate family. So in that sense the author has it right.

    But it is possible in this electronic age to ‘make things happen’ and be successful in business without a personal connection. Of course it can be easier with a personal connection such as a marketing consultant but even in that example it is not necessary to have a physical or proximal connection.

    Wave a check of sufficient size in front of Feehery and he will say whatever you want him to say. Next day when he finds out the check bounced he will cry from K Street to his former masters begging to take him back.

    He deserves a major takedown.

    Look at the energy they are putting into this news of Ted Cruz. At core, they are scared to death that the electorate will abandon them as the frauds they are.

    I am still marveling at the candor and transparency of Ted Cruz’ speech today at Liberty University. He opened his whole life for everyone to see.

    Then I think of the hidden parts of Obama’s life, how he has sealed vast swaths of his entire development.

    Ted Cruz has let everyone directly know just who he is and where he comes from.

    In contrast, no one knows directly who Obama is or where he came from. Indirectly we know him by his fruits and actions.

    Madison settled the question more than 200 years ago. A natural born citizen was born of an American citizen father with a domicile in the United States.

    An American’s wife at the time was not allowed the right to vote and was folded in with her husband in terms of nationality and culture. In other words it was the man and his domicile that determined whether natural born citizen was conferred.

    The term ‘domicile’ is distinct from ‘residence’.

    When early Americans were sailing the seas or residing abroad, they were considered loyal to the United States if they maintained a ‘domicile’ INSIDE the United States. They could ‘reside’ abroad but maintain a ‘domicile’ inside the United States. For example, Thomas Jefferson resided in Paris as the US Ambassador while maintaining his ‘domicile’ in Virginia at Monticello.

    The question came to Madison as to how to determine citizenship for children born at sea. This was not a rare event as many ocean voyages lasted weeks and months. Secondly, if a man and his family were stationed abroad such as employed in the Foreign Service like a consulate or embassy, then children born abroad of a citizen father were considered natural born.

    The natural born requirement originated in correspondence and communication between John Jay and General George Washington. Jay was concerned that Presidents would be Commanders-in-Chief and therefore capable of establishing a tyranny on the people using the Army. The proposal was to ensure ALLEGIANCE and LOYALTY by requiring children to be natural born meaning born to a citizen father and citizen mother. Dual citizenship was never an option in that era. Mothers were expected to fold in with their husbands as to allegiance, loyalty, citizenship, residence and domicile.

    A mother needed not be a natural citizen. As soon as she married a US citizen she automatically became a US citizen. Even if she was native Indian, German, English, French etc. she at once became a US citizen through marriage to a US Citizen. Dual citizenship was never an option and divorce was extremely rare so there wasn’t much confusion or conflict as to a married woman’s status.

    In light of the 14th Amendment and its abuses, the US Supreme Court and Congress must weigh in at some point to clarify issues of ALLEGIANCE and LOYALTY which are the underlying issues of the term ‘natural born’.

    We now have a President whose allegiance and loyalty are questioned. And we have a foreign born candidate whose allegiance and loyalty are above reproach. It’s time for our best jurists, historians and philosophers to work at shining a light on determining in this current era of divorce, independence of women, dual citizenship, ease of migration, fast long distance travel etc. what ensures ALLEGIANCE and LOYALTY in a President, and how to ensure it is successfully transmitted across generations.

    Yep. Lots of comparisons over the past years here of Cruz and Reagan.

    And was said previously several times Cruz will make a better president than Reagan because he has 20-20 hindsight.
