Ted Cruz is NOT a Legal U.S. Citizen at all
© JB Williams
The debate over whether or not Senator Ted Cruz is eligible for the U.S. Presidency is about to end. It has now been confirmed that Senator Ted Cruz is neither a “U.S. natural born Citizen” or a “legal U.S. citizen.”
According to all relative legal citizenship documentation available at present, Senator Ted Cruz was born Rafael Edward Cruz, a legal citizen of Canada on December 22, 1970 and maintained his legal Canadian citizenship from birth until May 14, 2014, 43 years later.
The Cruz Campaign for the U.S. Presidency has claimed that Senator Ted Cruz was a “citizen at birth” via his U.S. mother and a “dual citizen” of both Canada and the United States in 1970 and that by renouncing his Canadian citizenship in 2014, he would become eligible for the Oval Office.
There are several problems with this claim… which make the claim false
Senator Cruz was born in Canada, subject to the jurisdiction of Canada. Further, any U.S. citizen by virtue of the 14th Amendment only, is a “citizen” and not a “natural born Citizen,” as you will see below. (Source is Cornell Law on the 14th)
From May 22, 1868 until December 31, 1946, all residents of Canada were British subjects. There was no such thing as a Canadian citizen or Canadian citizenship until January 1, 1947.
From January 1, 1947 until February 15, 1977, Canadian law prohibited “dual citizenship.” Foreign parents giving birth to a child in Canada in 1970 were forced to choose between Canadian citizenship only, or citizenship in another country, and to declare that with Canadian officials at the time of birth. The parents of Ted Cruz chose and declared “Canadian citizenship” for Rafael Edward Cruz.
a) NATURAL BORN CITIZEN – “As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.” (The Natural Law as understood by the Founders in Article II of the US Constitution)
b) NATIVE BORN CITIZEN - All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. (The 14th Amendment definition for “citizen”)
c) NATURALIZED CITIZEN - the legal act or process by which a non-citizen in a country may acquire citizenship or nationality of that country. It may be done by a statute, without any effort on the part of the individual (aka anchor baby), or it may involve an application and approval by legal authorities, (such as a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) form filed with the US State Department at the time of birth). (This includes “anchor baby” or “citizen at birth” born here or abroad, under the 14th) Source is U.S. State Department
As the stated purpose of the Article II “natural born Citizen” requirement for the Oval Office is to prevent anyone with foreign allegiance at birth from ever occupying the Oval Office, and all “dual citizens” at birth are born with “dual national allegiance” at birth. The mere condition of “dual citizen at birth” would be a direct violation of the known purpose and intent of the natural born Citizen requirement in Article II. Source is a letter from Founder John Jay in proposing the NBC requirement for t....
Now, Senator Ted Cruz has repeatedly stated that he has never “naturalized” to the United States, which eliminated the possibility that Ted Cruz is a “naturalized” U.S. Citizen.
Senator Ted Cruz has also documented the fact that he was not a “native born citizen” of the United States, but rather a “native born citizen” of Canada on December 22, 1970, who maintained his legal Canadian citizenship until May 14, 2014.
The Harvard opinion letter written by two of Senator Cruz’s Harvard friends, Neal Katyal & Paul Clement, a mere “commentary” on the subject, relies upon the 14th Amendment naturalized citizen at birth concept, despite the fact that Ted Cruz was not “born in or under the jurisdiction of the United States,” was never “naturalized” to the United States, and completely ignoring the fact that Canada prohibited “dual citizenship” in 1970, as well as the fact that “dual citizenship” alone would prevent him from “natural born U.S.” status.
All of this explains why Senator Ted Cruz has no legal U.S. citizenship documentation of any kind. He is not a “natural born” – “native born” or “naturalized” citizen of the United States. Because someone must be one of the three in order to be a legal citizen of the United States, Senator Ted Cruz cannot possibly be a “legal U.S. citizen” of any form.
Only days ago, a 17-year-old first time voter at a New Hampshire town hall meeting for Senator Ted Cruz asked a very reasonable question… “How and why, until recently, were you unaware that you were a Cana...
As the young man explained, this is not an eligibility question, but a credibility question… which Senator Cruz refused to answer, preferring instead to regurgitate the talking points carefully crafted by his Harvard friends and eventually, shouting the young man down, after a Cruz fan in the audience shouted “better a Canadian than a Kenyan!” (VIDEO) Meanwhile, a growing number of Constitutional Law Professors agree, “Cruz is NOT eligible.”
Of course, Senator Marco Rubio is also “ineligible,” as a “native born citizen at birth” by virtue of 14th Amendment “anchor baby” policies only.
In the end, the only possible way to consider Senator Ted Cruz eligible for the Oval Office is if every “undocumented resident alien” is eligible for the Oval Office, which I personally believe is the real agenda of both political parties, as they work to meld the USA into the global commune where there is no legal difference between “natural born Americans” and “undocumented aliens.”
The fact that so many Americans do not know or care to know the truth about the Constitutional “natural born Citizen” requirement for the Oval Office, demonstrates just how far down the road of “hope and change” for the destruction of the Constitutional Republic, the enemy within has already achieved.
Soon, “natural born Americans” will be in the American minority… and they will be ruled by foreigners who have no legal U.S. citizenship at all.
Michael, what exactly supports anything you say and honestly will take offense, as a Cruz supporter, to you calling him a fraud. It is a fact that he has far more legal qualifications than you and probably have stronger credentials than Mr. Williams who sponsored this post. I do know this for a fact, there has been no scholar come out against Cruz or Rubio.
Whether I agree or disagree with Obama being NBC is mute, by the way I do not agree. I am very well knowledgeable to the difference between a Certificate of Birth vs the Original Birth Certificate and I do think it was fraud by anyone who would have accepted a Certificate of Birth as definitive proof. How in the hell can we overcome it, I haven't the slightest idea, what I do know is that many have challenged it and we've not gained anything.
To date and based on what has transpired in the last seven years, neither Cruz or Rubio could be determined unqualified.
Anyone can label themselves a "scholar", as some on this forum have done, and back it up with nothing but "I'm a scholar".
Even the super uber liberal Lawrence Tribe of Harvard said the Supreme court has not even reviewed Natural born citizen.
It will take a act of Congress to establish the meaning and that might take an amendment.
GoodBusiness, exactly, Trump did use his name in his initial statement towards Cruz though Tribe had never given his own opinion. Trump totally misled the people when he used Tribe's name. If I recall Trump, he said that he didn't know, which Trump then used as his authority, pure crap. By the way, it will take an Amendment, good luck. Or, someone who could get a suit filed that would have standing and if everyone remembers when suits were being brought Obama, they could never get one heard due to "Standing".
This is for all those out there who believe Cruz and Rubio are eligible as Natural Born Citizens. There have been 5 US Supreme Court cases where Natural Born Citizen has been ruled upon and explained in detail. In all 5 cases, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio do not qualify and are not eligible to be President or CiC under Art. II, Sec. I, clause V of the US Constitution. Starting with, Venus vs US 1814, Livingston Shanks vs Dupont 1830, Minor vs Happersett 1876, Wong Kim Ark vs US 1898 and Laria vs US 1913. All declared in almost this same language. " A Natural Born Citizen is, any person born in the United States of America, whose parents (plural) were citizens (again plural) at the time of his or her birth." Ted Cruz is not a Constitutional Scholar, he's a Constitutional Fraud, a liar, a coward and by his actions a TRAITOR. Neither of Marco Rubio's parents were citizens when he was born, they legal resident aliens. He's an anchor baby at best. So the same goes for him, liar, coward and Traitor. So people don't come out and say things that you have heard some lawyer say or declare, that you have no proof of and do your own homework. Try looking up those 5 cases to start with. The US Constitution does matter and if the day comes when it doesn't matter, we have lost our Country, our Liberty and our Freedoms.
First, let me post a link to this article, which will give you an excellent idea of why so many people support Trump.
Second, THE most critical issues within the first year of the next Presidency are stopping TPP and getting our immigration under control, illegal and legal - the two issues are inextricably linked (as stated by one of the most conservative Senators, Jeff Sessions). The fact is, the ONLY candidate who understands this is Donald Trump. I am hoping Jeff Sessions agrees to be his VP - Sessions allowed one of his long-term assistants go over to work on Trump's campaign. Yes, Trump is an asshole sometimes and gets diarrhea of the mouth - he repeats himself over and over again and constantly talks about the polls. To date, he has done a poor job of laying out his policies. And yet? He has yuuuuge leads in the polls! The fact is that neither Cruz nor Rubio are viable candidates for me not only because of the NBC issue, but their policies. I am going to post some other links here so you can see what is hidden to those who don't search this stuff out. These links are all regarding Cruz. I haven't really begun my research on Rubio - don't really feel he is as much of a danger, but that may change.
Lastly, are we electing a minister or a President? Who, of all of you, is perfect? THERE IS NO PERFECT. If we want to save our country, we need the biggest, baddest, meanest asshole we can find who is NOT beholden to the NWO cartel - and THAT is Donald Trump!!!

EXCERPT: Chairman of Cruz's foreign policy team, Chad Sweet: Infogram’s biography of Chad Sweet includes the following associations, demonstrating that he is very much a step in the “same direction”: With a diverse background, starting as Director of the CIA, Chad Sweet went into the world of big banks — from Investment Banker at Morgan Stanley to VP with Goldman Sachs. He would then work for the Department of Homeland Security in the Bush Administration. Currently he is the Co-Founder of Chertoff Group.
Cruz’s foreign policy advisor is James Woolsey, a player who would be drafted in the first round of any neocon fantasy team owner. The Infogram bio is enough evidence to convict Woolsey of being neocon to the core: Woolsey was a national security specialist and former Director of the CIA under the Clinton administration. He heads up many Neoconservative groups including being the Chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and Founding Member of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
More than just academic advocacy of the military-industrial complex and the global deployment of American troops to force democracy on the world, Woolsey has no problem putting the noose around those who act against the growth of the government.
In a December 2013 interview with Fox News, Woolsey made the following shocking statement when asked about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden: “I think giving him amnesty is idiotic,” Woolsey said. “He should be prosecuted for treason. If convicted by a jury of his peers, he should be hanged by his neck until he is dead.”
That’s not just think-tank rhetoric, that’s reign-of-terror-type talk.

Cruz claims to support home-schoolers: http://freedomoutpost.com/2016/01/ted-cruzs-federal-education-choic...
Sen. Ted Cruz's S 306 is redefining homeschools as private schools:
"(C) PRIVATE SCHOOL.—For purposes of this section, the term 'private school' includes any home school that meets the requirements of State law applicable to such home schools, whether or not such school is deemed a private school for purposes of State law." (Emp. added.)
Why is Sen. Ted Cruz violating State's Rights and the 10th Amendment by forcing states to recognize homeschools as private schools, whether they want to or not? This is a Constitutional crisis in the making. The federal government mandates are forcing states to comply in this section of his bill. Is Sen. Ted Cruz bypassing State Sovereignty and representative government here? Why would Sen. Ted Cruz, a man supposedly dedicated to the Constitution, ride roughshod over the 10th Amendment as well as Supreme Court decisions reaffirming parents' rights over the education of their children?
Knowing this to be true, WHY would Sen. Ted Cruz change a homeschool into a private school? By changing this definition, all criteria for a private school that receives any federal funds from a Title I child would be be also be applied to homeschools. This includes abiding by standards, testing, curriculum, teacher certification, direct student services, and data collection. In other words, performance to Common Core in 45 states would then be mandated to homeschools! The extensive defining elements for "equitable direct student services" and an "approved" mandated curriculum (i.e., mental health psychobabble) are repeated throughout the ESEA legislation. (Note: There are 14 states that already define a homeschool as a private school. S 306 applies to private schools.)
I'm on Judith's team!
THANK YOU for this clarification. I never thought either Obama or Cruz was eligible to even run
for the Office Of President of our United States of America!
It seems he sees the one in the Whitehouse is the perfect example, that a Non-Natural Born can run for and win the office of President of this Country. Seems rather strange that this is being brought up now, after 7+ years of the imposter-N-Chief right now sitting in our Presidents chair. He has done as he said he would do, he has fundamentally transformed, and made this, no longer a Christian Nation. This does not even include all the other damage he has done to this once great Country, and it's People. He has put us on the wayward bus to destruction, locked the steering wheel, and welded down the accelerator.
Personally, I do not believe he will leave the cushy, multi-million dollar vacation, and golf outing post in which he reins, just as a Dictator would. I believe first, he would declare Martial Law, and cancel the elections. This would be in effect, until he himself lifted the order. He will not do that.
I believe God is in control, and he has allowed this man to be where he is, and do what he does, as we enter the Beginning of Sorrows, the Tribulation, and finally the last days, when Jesus will return in the clouds to receive the elect. The asleep in him will be taken first, then we who have survived, and stayed strong, will join them. We will be changed, in the twinkling of an eye. I have studied heavily, Bible Scripture, with special enfaces more to Prophecy, tribulation, and end times events. Anyone who has studied the end times prophecies, can easily recognize that we are truly in the end times. Likely the beginning of sorrows phase. Look to the Heavens, as more and more events take place than ever before. Look to Nature, as Hurricanes, Tornados, higher tides, and fish dying and washing up on the beaches, birds falling out of the skies. Look to the earth, as Earthquake activity, Eruptions of volcanoes, sounds, and sink holes are increasing in both large numbers, and intensities. Look to man, God says that he will run to and fro, technology will be increased, and we even will fly through the air like birds. Look how hatred has spread among races, look at same sex marriage, and demands of LGBT. Do you not see that Prophecy is being fulfilled to the letter, in all these areas?. The rough ride has only just begun, watch as all of these things increase, and the people fall to the will of Government. A one world order is on the horizon. A one world religion is on the horizon, the United States is very close to loosing our standing as the worlds reserve currency, making way for a one world currency. Bankruptcy of the US, and our dollar becoming a fraction of the value will happen, and we all loose when it does. Our Nation, our Military, and our so called leader, have made us weak, and a joke to our enemies, and we have discarded all of the allies we had.
Stand Strong, Christian brothers and sisters, as we will be rounded up and killed for our Savior. He says we will go through much, and die for his name’s sake. It has already begun. Endure to the end, and through physical death, and steadfastness, we will receive eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven. Those who reject salvation, will also live for eternity, but in the depths of Hell. We all have a choice, and each will receive that which they have chosen themselves, through their own choices and decisions. Be sure your sins will find you out.
You just may be onto something freedomfighter.
