  • Put It To Rest: Yes, Ted Cruz Is A Natural Born Citizen

    PJ Media ^ | 11-13-2015 | Michael van der Galien
    The last few days, a new group of birthers has started to harass me: most of them Trump-supporters. The target of these new birthers? Ted Cruz, the senator from Texas. These people tell me that Cruz is ineligible to be president because he’s supposedly not a “natural born citizen.” When I then ask these folks why that is, they point at the constitution, which says only a “natural born citizen” can become president. Great. However, that doesn’t actually answer my question. The Constitution states that only a “natural born citizen” can become president, but doesn’t actually explain what that is...

    There has been plenty of discussion of the presidential debates: moderators, topics, format and so on. While I was lurking on one such thread here on FR tonight, it occurred to me to look for information about how they are setting up the upcoming town hall debate on October 16 by going to the website of the Commission on Presidential Debates. While there, I came across a section regarding eligibility to participate in the debates and lo and behold, they require the participants to be Natural Born Citizens and the rest of the constitutional qualifications to run for President.

    Is a $15 gift card enough to compensate for public humiliation at your local grocery store? According to one Georgia woman, the answer is absolutely not. Cindy Nerger, 28, who relies on food stamps to feed her family, said she was brought to tears after being embarrassed by a manager at a Kroger store in Warner Robbins, Ga. "He said, 'Excuse me for working for a living and not relying on food stamps like you,'" Nerger said the manager told her. The man's comment came after Nerger and two other store employees disagreed over whether her total purchase was eligible...

    A federal judge has determined in a case challenging Barack Obamas eligibility for a state ballot that the meaning of the constitutional phrase natural born citizen is important and not trivial. U.S. District Judge S. Thomas Anderson of Tennessee said the courts ultimately must define natural born citizen, affirming that the issue of whether President Obama is constitutionally qualified to run for the presidency is certainly substantial.

But, he added, "The much stronger argument suggests that if you were born on American soil that you would be considered a natural-born citizen."

He was the son of exiles, he told audiences, Cuban Americans forced off their beloved island after a thug, Fidel Castro, took power. But a review of documents including naturalization papers and other official records reveals that the Florida Republicans account embellishes the facts.

    The critical issue for the 2012 election is whether or not a government of the people, by the people and for the people, shall perish from the earth. The US Government has been hijacked by a self-serving, permanent political class, which considers itself above the law and elections as bothersome formalities temporarily interrupting their plundering of the nations wealth. Having become comfortable with ignoring the will of the people, American politicians have created a culture of corruption in Washington, D.C., while they steadily whittle away at the Constitution to remove any remaining obstacles in their pursuit of personal power and...

    On April 30th of 2008, the United States Senate proclaimed John McCain eligible to become the President of the United States, passing by unanimous consent Senate Resolution 511 which stated that his birth in the Panama Canal Zone did not violate the natural born citizen clause of the Constitution. One of the co-sponsors of this non-binding resolution was Barack Hussein Obama. Though the Constitution does not define natural born, it is clear that the meaning had been based upon principles included in a work quite popular with many of the Founders, the 1758 Law of Nations by Frenchman Emerich de...

    An ongoing poll by AOL News currently shows that 58% of Americans have doubts about Obama’s citizenship. The poll was started on July 28 and continues — you can go here to vote. And lest you think that this survey is being conducted in a very anti-Obama venue, the title of the article is Birthers, Beer and Stuck on ‘Stupidly’ — it is an environment contemptuous of skeptics. So we can conclude that the results of their poll are not what they were hoping for.A scant five years ago, Barack Obama was a little known Illinois state politician, aspiring to move...

A natural-born U.S. citizen is someone who, in essence, obtains citizenship without any Act of Congress being necessary. So if you are born in the U.S., you are a citizen automatically, with no Act of Congress needed; and thus, you are a natural-born citizen. A naturalized citizen of the United States, on...
