US Senator Ted Cruz from Texas, has been under fire in his bid for the White House due to his Canadian citizenship records which make it quite clear that he does not meet the Constitutional “natural born Citizen” requirement for the Oval Office, despite the opinion letter from his Harvard friends.
Following a total lack of vetting on Barack Hussein Obama in 2008 and 2012, many insist that no one ever enter the Oval Office again without proper vetting, including proof of meeting all Constitutional requirements for office. Obama’s massive destruction of our Constitutional Republic has placed the issue of Constitutional eligibility on the front burner for many Americans, and partisanship has nothing to do with it.
In the effort to vet every 2016 presidential candidate, Cruz, who had once stated that both he and Barack Obama were ineligible for the Oval Office, found himself under tight scrutiny from the same people who tried to stop Obama from taking the Oval Office via fraud. Ted placed himself in the crosshairs of constitutionalists who do not care about partisan politics, by seeking an office he is not eligible to seek.
In investigating Cruz eligibility for the Oval Office, his eligibility for the US Senate came into question…
The Constitutional requirements for the US Senate are as follows;
“No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.”
At 42 years old in 2012, Ted Cruz obviously met the age requirement of 30 years. However, he also needed to meet the requirement of at least “nine Years a Citizen of the United States.” As the Constitution states, one cannot be just an “Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.”
The known source for the Founders use of the term natural born Citizen, The Law of Nations, also defines “Inhabitant” as follows;
§ 213. Inhabitants.
“The inhabitants, as distinguished from citizens, are foreigners, who are permitted to settle and stay in the country. Bound to the society by their residence, they are subject to the laws of the state while they reside in it; and they are obliged to defend it, because it grants them protection, though they do not participate in all the rights of citizens. They enjoy only the advantages which the law or custom gives them. The perpetual inhabitants are those who have received the right of perpetual residence. These are a kind of citizens of an inferior order, and are united to the society without participating in all its advantages. Their children follow the condition of their fathers; and, as the state has given to these the right of perpetual residence, their right passes to their posterity.”
Today, the legal term for this condition in the United States is “illegal alien,” someone in our country and living under U.S. jurisdiction, without legally belonging to society. Modern social justice attitudes often refer to these people as “undocumented citizens” which of course are not citizens at all. Our I.R.S. created a new class of “citizen” for the purpose of collecting taxes from illegal aliens, “resident alien” which is an inhabitant (not a citizen) who pays taxes.
Contrary to current leftist social justice ideologies that view all “illegal aliens” in the U.S. as only “unauthorized” or “undocumented” citizens, our laws identify them as nothing more than “illegal aliens,” or “resident aliens” who pay taxes under I.R.S. codes.
Further, in any matter of law, authenticated evidence supersedes any and all politically motivated opinions, especially opinions which are either unfounded or poorly founded. Unlike Barack Hussein Obama who posted three forged U.S. Certifications of Live Birth and later a Hawaiian newspaper announcement of his birth to evidence his Oval Office eligibility, Ted Cruz issued his Canadian Birth Certificate as evidence of being “born a citizen of Canada.”
The above Canadian document is proof of Canadian Citizenship at birth for Senator Ted Cruz. The next piece of authenticated evidence released by Ted Cruz is a Canadian document proving that he remained a legal citizen of Canada until renouncing that citizenship in May of 2014, which means, he was still a legal citizen of Canada in 2012 when he ran for, was elected and took the oath of office for the US Senate.
Again, the above authenticated evidence proves that Ted Cruz was born Canadian in 1970 and remained a legal citizen of Canada until renouncing his Canadian citizenship in May of 2014. These official documents also prove that Ted Cruz was a legal citizen of Canada in 2012, when he sought and claimed a seat in the U.S. Senate as a legal US citizen.
As a result of this damning evidence, the Cruz campaign hired friends at Harvard to issue a letter which makes a legal case for how Ted Cruz (and Barack Obama) might be a natural born Citizen of the United States eligible to seek the Oval Office. However, a legal opinion letter is not equal to, nor does it supersede authentic evidence to the contrary.
It is possible for a child to be born outside of the United States, and still acquire legal U.S. citizenship at birth through a parent, according to U.S. Naturalization codes pertaining to “Citizenship at Birth for Children Born Outside the U.S. and its Ter....” If the related conditions are met, a child born outside of the United States to one U.S. Citizen parent, in this case, Ted’s mother, the parents can file for and receive U.S. Citizenship for the child by filing a CRBA form with a U.S. Consulate at the time of birth.
The statutes governing this naturalization process state;
“A child born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth if certain statutory requirements are met. The child’s parents should contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America (CRBA) to document that the child is a U.S. citizen. If the U.S. embassy or consulate determines that the child acquired U.S. citizenship at birth, a consular officer will approve the CRBA application and the Department of State will issue a CRBA, also called a Form FS-240, in the child’s name.”
According to related U.S. laws governing “Citizenship at Birth for Children Born Outside the U.S. and its Territories,” the following conditions had to be met in order for Ted Cruz to legally claim U.S. citizenship at birth via these naturalization statutes, through his mother.
The U.S. citizen parent had been physically present in the U.S. or its territories for a period of at least five years at some time in his or her life prior to the birth, of which at least two years were after his or her 14th birthday.
If the U.S. citizen parent spent time abroad in any of the following three capacities, this can also be counted towards the physical presence requirement:• Serving honorably in the U.S. armed forces;
• Employed with the U.S. government; or
• Employed with certain international organizations.
Additionally, time spent abroad by the U.S. citizen parent while the U.S. citizen parent was the unmarried son or daughter and a member of the household of a person who meets any of the three conditions listed above can also be counted.
Ted’s parents were at no time serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, employed by the U.S. Government or by any of the certain international organizations, during their eight years in Canada, between 1966 and 1974. Further, Ted’s father Rafael, was at no time a legal citizen of the United States prior to naturalizing in 2005, from Canada. Rafael’s known legal citizenship status as of 1970 was Cuban, not American.
This is an EXAMPLE of a US CRBA Form
Unfortunately, there is no evidence to suggest that the parent or parents of Ted Cruz ever filed a CRBA form with the U.S. Government in or around 1970, which is why Ted Cruz released a copy of his Canadian citizenship records and not any U.S. citizenship records. At present, all FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests filed in search of any U.S. citizenship documents to confirm the true official U.S. citizenship status of Ted Cruz have been denied access. All citizenship records for Ted Cruz are sealed unless and until Ted Cruz agrees to allow any such records to be released by either U.S. or Canadian agencies.
As a result, there remains no authentic evidence to support the claims that Ted Cruz is either a “natural born” or “naturalized” citizen of the United States.
Without any form of U.S. Citizenship documentation, and proof of Canadian citizenship at birth in 1970 and holding that legal status until May 2014 when he renounced his birth citizenship to Canada, there is no way for Ted Cruz to prove that he is either “natural born” and eligible for the Oval Office, or “naturalized” prior to 2012, when he sought and accepted a seat in the U.S. Senate as a legal citizen of Canada.
It is unfortunate that a person so many have placed their political faith in has proven willing to defraud his supporters for both votes and millions in campaign donations. But it is better we know now, than after he wins the GOP nomination only to be destroyed by Democrats later, using the same facts and evidence presented here.
What will the people do with this knowledge? Are they really motivated by restoration of Constitutional compliance, or mere political expediency?

Gerard.......at this point I can only say I would like to support the candidate that is constitutionally eligible and able to defeat HRC.........if the conservative candidate is either Cruz or Rubio, I see the nation rapidly sliding into the abyss, never to recover without chaos, blood in the streets. I fear we will never regain what the Founding Fathers left us......we are at the point they were at in Great Britain...........but where can we go to start afresh? I don't believe there is any livable, uninhabitable land available. Many of the faithful are too old, crippled to do anything but ride until an earthly leader takes the reins or our Savior returns.
Cruz is Eligible - Rubio is NOT.
I've posted on this many times.... Not going to belabor this here - again.
Go tell a judge...
obots are pushing cruz crud.
Bla Bla Bla.... No 'bot here. Do you're own homework. Registering Ted at an embassy when born on foreign soil does not remove his NB/C inheritance from his mother - and father who was naturalized when Mother/Father married in the U.S.
I guess we agree to disagree Paul...........
This article needs to be posted all over the internet, because it will come down to Trump and Cruz and if Cruz wins primary the demoncrats will hold this trump care and use it near the end and Hilary will win. You must spread this all over, on facbook pages and everywhere. I tried posting it but it doesn't pull up the exact article.
If we had a patriotic congress then this mess would have had a BIG CORRECTION starting November 1, 2015, IF they had only elected Donald Trump as MR. SPEAKER instead of rino ryan. Just think about DT being Speaker of the House; second in line for potus and the ability to begin criminal investigative committees for everyone crimes and I bet obomus and biden would resign within weeks as DT made a deal with them (not to hang'em high). When and IF DT takes office in a year, America is already in crash mode and almost impossible to stop and what will they do in another year to further the destruction.
As Stalin said: It does not matter on electorate, What matter is who is counting votes.
So, should we follow the constitutional requirements for holding a office? Yes! But if we do so with those who are standing for election in 2016, and do nothing with Mr. Obama who is not eligible, we are committing a vast travesty against those running for office in 2016. I say, if we do nothing with Mr. Obama, the ones running for office in 2016 should be allowed to take whatever offices they are elected to. Amen anybody?
Mr. James, Knoxville, Tennessee
I'm not in agreement James...I won't vote for Cruz or Rubio.......two wrongs do not make a right. Cruz and Rubio are only two men in a population of over 300 million, so we are not dependent on two. We also have several worthy candidates that can be president who meet constitutional muster...what we need to do is fall of the side of the US Constitution and scream to Heaven for the right man or woman..........Trump, Huckabee, Forina, Carson, Christie, to name a few.
What a dilemma we have as citizens of this country. And, this dilemma is well expressed here.
It's very late for me. I don't have the time for a comprehensive reply. But -
>Cruz's parents did not complete a CRBA at the Canadian consulate. He renounced Canadian citizenship in 2014. He campaigned & was elected as a senator without acknowledging his ineligibility.
> Rubio - much the same as Sen. Cruz. And, Rubio was 'not present to vote' at several crucial congressional votes - including a MOST ! important bill of the recent Ryan-McConnell engineered Omnibus bill.
>Hillary is one of a duo of very long, historically documented criminal actions. She is, by all legal rights, indictable - solely on the criminal actions relating to her private email server while Sec. of State.
>Trump is the leader of the polls & enjoys a huge populist support. However, Trump may not have enough money to fully support a major campaign as the possible Republican candidate. His business empire is losing money - a lot of it. Foreign capital investments & opportunities for them, have diminished during this primary campaign run. Domestic investment returns are now losing capital.
>Christie is now getting a LOT ! of heat for siding & supporting an Imam of a very large mosque in New Jersey; and, Christie defended this imam against some charges by the NJ's attorney general. Christie is losing his base for a score of reasons.
>Bush, Santorum, Paul, lingerers in the wings - they've no chance at all. Ryan's constituents raised a loud and sustained anger against him for his full support to the passage of the Omnibus bill.
>Obama has gone further hay-wired with his foreign and domestic policies. Most likely, his disastrous foreign policies in the Mid-East will break the mantle of built up global pressures & erupt into an attempted controlled limited war.
>The Trans-Pacific Trade Pact will destroy most American businesses, precipitate losses of huge land holdings; bring World Court suites against American principals, investors, businesses, and citizens.
>Our national debt is completely out of control with total absence of any potential to resolve. Our money system - Federal Reserve Notes is a sham; very close to being rejected by the largest economies of the world - Brazil - Russia - India - China - South Africa.
>And, yes, there is more.
Col. Riley's valiant attempt to complete OAS was attacked by all description of popular & political leaders. Glenn Beck resounded his "Do - Not - Go" on his broadcasts for over two months! Yet, Col. Riley's attempt serves as a good model to be exercised by any & all of us at our local & state level.
Rantings & railings which occur here are good for ventilation of pent-up frustration. The excellent expressions of our Christian faith; of our historic foundations of our Judeo - Christian civic & legal foundations serve to center us of the Forum.
Yet, we must begin to converge toward expressions of local efforts. Our villages / towns / counties / state need our voices - as a concerted group of vested citizens. This is where changes germinate. These areas are the seed beds of change. YES ! we must ! call every one of our federal senators, representatives, federally appointed bureaucrats, fed. bureau members > and strongly assert that there will be a concerted effort by large groups to vote them out! Their terms are ended ! There is a well founded, Constitutionally established and lawful Grand Jury entitlement which we citizens can bring together. Research this - solicit & enlist pledged people to bring this effort together in a concerted, sustained direction toward any level of results ! - the smaller thence to the larger.
Well, of course, there'd be more. Perhaps in an other visit to this Forum. All of you ! have my support, encouragement, and prayers to our Lord, Jesus the Christ.
