Posted on 05/03/2016 5:16:13 AM PDT by iontheball
In the midst of questions arising as to why presidential candidate Ted Cruz, U.S. Senator from Texas, has produced no documentation to support his claim that he was born a U.S. citizen in Canada in December 1970, author, former congressional candidate and former Hawaii resident Miki Booth provided a copy of her birth certificate, prepared by the American consulate in Sapporo, Japan, indicating that she was a U.S. citizen born abroad.
The certificate was sent to The Post & Email by surface mail and returned in the same manner.
Booth was born on December 18, 1949 in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan while her father, Thomas William Snyder, Jr., was stationed there in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Military families that have been stationed abroad and who have had children overseas all know the importance of the CRBA. If you were born overseas, there would otherwise be a question of your citizenship unless the U.S. Consular office did not formalize the existence of your U.S. citizen status with the CRBA. It is as simple as that. Having done so, however, means your citizenship was naturalized by U.S. law. It does not, and can not make you a natural born citizen of the United States.
We now have been presented with two individuals claiming eligibility to hold the office of president who are not qualified to do so. Ask yourself, is it just a coincidence that two consecutive candidates for the office of the president just happen to have foreign birth entanglements that remain unanswered? Isn't it just a little bit odd or strange that of all the natural born U.S. citizens in this country, we get stuck with two such characters back to back? Who really are these imposters that are determined to deliberately mislead Americans and cover up their backgrounds? Now, do not tell me Harvard educated lawyers do not know what their real U.S. citizen legal status is. Who propelled them to this level and why the deception? Why doesn't the Agency, other law enforcement powers, and politicians give a damn about the issue, the Constitution and national security. It could only mean they are in on the scheme. We have seen what the current imposter has done to the country. The answer to why the politicians have not done anything to stop him lies in the fact they permitted his illegal entry into the WH in the first place and haven't raised a finger about a repeat occurrence now taking place. The reason is they are part of the plot that placed him there and they have facilitated his destruction of the country. That makes 99% of them traitors in my book and clearly our worst enemy because they are inside the perimeter. Is there still a chance to stop this despicable calculated take down of America?
Yup. My daughter has one. Looks something like this:
” Having done so, however, means your citizenship was naturalized by U.S. law. It does not, and can not make you a natural born citizen of the United States. “
BS. Persons serving the government abroad are US citizens by birth. You fail civics 101.
“natural born Citizen”...notice the caps and lower case beginning of each word.
Key word - “natural”.
“Of nature, not of man...”
Seems pretty clear. If you have to go through legalistic somersaults, you’ve lost the argument.
No law, statute, regulation needed. It’s obvious from the start.
The reason is momma Cruz never contacted the American consulate or embassy in Canada concerning her son’s birth.
My understanding is that the Cruz family did not apply for a CRBA until 1986, when Ted would have been 15 or 16.
While this does not DIRECTLY implicate his NBC status or lack thereof, it does speak to INTENT - the intent of his parents at the time of his birth.
I know that if one of my children was born in a foreign country, I would have been at the consulate or embassy the VERY NEXT DAY to safeguard the evidence of that most precious birthright of any real American.
How does an infant serve the US government at birth?
Ted Cruz is so clearly not a natural born citizen for the purposes of constitutional office that it is laughable.
“How does an infant serve the US government at birth?”
Are you really that stupid to ask that question?
Do you think George Washington and John Jay would think Cruz a NBC?
True. . IF you ALWAYS intended to go back to America and live there. I think that the Cruz clan was simply trying to make there way somewhere, ANYWHERE, and that they did not have an overarching patriotic fervor AT THE TIME. Now maybe, but then no.
Here is a summary Ted Cruz’s campaign:
“There is no government but Goldman Sachs,
there is no king but Seven Hills Ted,
and Glenn Beck is his prophet.”
Cruz’s citizenship, at this point, doesn’t mean (even) -
seven hills of beans.
By the way, what the heck are the dominionists doing, trying to “build a city on seven hills”?
It’s almost like they’ve never read their Bibles!
.... wait a minute.... maybe I stumbled onto something there....
My daughter has similar documentation signed by Haig after being born in Italy while I was stationed there.
The intent is clear. His parents who were expecting a baby left the country and returned to their home country so their son would be a natural born citizen of Canada. It is obvious their allegiance was to Canada not The United States. Not Ted’s fault but not really debatable either.
Clearly the language was imputed in order to stipulate a SPECIAL class of citizen for the purposes of holding constitutional office. Clearly Cruz is NOT a special class of citizen.
“It may seem like sour grapes, but Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution is still the supreme law of the land. How outrageous is it for a Harvard educated lawyer and a self-proclaimed Constitutionalist to claim he is qualified to be POS by producing only his Canadian birth certificate and his recent renunciation of Canadian citizenship.”
And your contention is Cruz, a constitutional scholar, who probably understands article ll as well as anyone is deceptively trying to get around the constitution so he can be President? And in the process, Mark Levin, also a constitutional scholar and every court that has heard this case is wrong?
It really is irrelevant now because Trump, once he hits 1237 is the nominee. I just find it amusing that all these Monday morning constitutional scholars think they know more than someone like Levin who treats the constitution as scripture.
Natural born citizen, no
“Do you think George Washington and John Jay would think Cruz a NBC?”
No! My comments were about citizens serving their country abroad. Was Cruz’s parents serving the US government abroad. No. Get a grip. Learn to read.
More candidates than 2. There’s a couple of people who dropped out who aren’t NBC either.
Of nature, not of man...
Seems pretty clear. If you have to go through legalistic somersaults, youve lost the argument.
What on earth does that mean? The Constitution is a 100% legal document.
So far in human history, every human ever born is naturally born. Does that make every human an American citizen?
“Natural born” is a qualification requirement, just as age and residence is.
“Natural born” was defined precisely by the Naturalization Act of 1790. That definition precludes Cruz completely.
