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.
That was eye-opening, to be sure. I posted a link to an article from PubliusHuldah earlier in this conversation. Mostly, I think it got trounced. She makes it very plain what an NBC is. I believe she is spot on. In my genealogical diggings I have studied this end of our American History, so that I could better understand the era in which my sixth great-grandparents lived. (I am a genealogist, that's what we do.) I've learned far more about the Revolutionary period than I EVER was taught in school. The wife really was the property of the husband. Even were they to divorce, the children were considered his. So, it's not a huge stretch to realize that, especially during this time frame, the citizenship of the father would translate to his children.
Since my sixth great-grandfather was, himself, born in August Co., (now Rockingham) Colony of Virginia in 1745, he, too, was 'naturalized' by the Declaration of Independence. The first seven of his many children (18, between his first wife and his second) were born prior to 1776, so they, too, were 'naturalized. His grandchildren were natural born citizens.
Because of this, I've often questioned our current president's eligibility. Although I realize it's moot to pick this fight at this last stage of the game, and until the current Supreme Court undergoes an overhaul, it's also moot.
Thank you for posting this.
Well said you sound like a patriot from that stock. I too. obozo was deemed and so it was. Difficult to impeach a person not elgible to be POTUS. He is what President of the United States of America by Constitution? No impossible that is a fact. He is what President of the US inc by de facto color of law government? Very likely. Office of the President a third and heretofore for me, option.
When one reads the Constitution circa 1819 thru 1860 the contractual document among 38 states multiple times. the current potus is null.
Inc was in control until they killed LaVoy. That is when they lost. It is damage control from here on. Ours to lose from here on.
I need a brag: Vrooman's have been in New Amsterdam since 1664. 2 direct, father and son fought on the blue side against the Brits. I went to the effort to qualify my daughter as DAR, granddaughter did it.
Publius is great until her BAR is challenged. She sees islam very clearly, among many others. I like Anna von Reits even if she is a Kraut. CLGJ gets my support.
I do not trust Trump. For 60 years he has been pro-abortion, now he is standing with Conservative Republicans which he claims to be one. Until today. He now states he is a Pluralist or a Nationalist. So which is it?? Does he even know. This man is not even really a Christian, does not live a Christian life. Has been a pro-abortionist for the last 60 years and has suddenly had a Flash of truth and now, so says he, Pro Life. This is not a God fearing man who has never repented. Not only has he been married three times, so far, however, engaged in numerous affairs while married. This is a man without values. It terrifies me that he could end up President of the United States. We are presently undergoing a surge of mischief and tremendous danger to our Country by the incumbent illegal occupant and now we are embarking on a second fraud, who while he may actually be a bona fide Ameriana Citizen will do whatever he wants of the Country. And he will pound his chest as though he is Tarzan at every little achievement he, Donald Trump, values whether good or bad for the Country just like he takes property from little old ladies, not considering it is not just a piece of land but to them. whether or not it is run down, it is their home. He does not care or have any feeling for that, all he know is he gave them money for it because in his small maind money is everything. The home is valueless in his eyes.
Since I have become a born again Christian, many of my thought processes have changed, from what they had been previously. I have learned, as the Bible says, Judge not, lest ye be judged. I used to be a snap judge of people, and things, but have outgrown that part of what I was.
I was going down the road one day, and looked over next to me at a stop light to the truck on my right. The driver had a really scarred, tortured looking face, and I thought to myself, Man I sure would hate to be that guy, and look so bad. Immediately my heart melted that I thought such a terrible thing. I thought I bet this man has a wife and Children who love his as he is, and it does not really matter what I, or anyone else thinks. Maybe he was a man I could truly call a friend, if I had known him, it is possible his wife kisses him when he walks in the door from work, and his Children run and hug him before they trot off to bed. I thought very lowly of myself, and asked God to forgive my criticism of a man of whom I know only that he has a face that looked strange to me.
I have also discovered through my journey through my Christian life, that I used to snap judge almost everything, and everyone. A man I knew, who lived a quite obviously sinful, and Godless life died, at a relatively early age. My first thought at his funeral was, Well, I guess we all know where his Soul went after he took his last breath. As it turned out, he was in a hospital bed for about 3 hours before death came. He was in extreme discomfort, and obviously in great pain, according to a good friend who was with him at the time. I began to think what a terrible man I was for saying that his soul would likely go to Hell, because of the life he had led. I do not know what went on in his mind in that last few moments, or couple of minutes in his consciousness. He may have felt a deep remorse for the life he had led, decided to accept the Savior, and ask God to forgive him of his many sins, and his Soul then belonged to God, not Satan.
People change, and we as people cannot possibly judge the reality of what they are, or were, without knowing the truth about them. We hear much, but not all of what we hear is true. Those who are anti person X, will say anything about them to discredit, or make them in a bad light, especially if they have something to gain by that action. It is up to us to research, as much as possible the real person, find out what their past was, find out what their friends, relatives, and even their employees felt about them, to get a true idea of who and what they truly are. Even with the deepest search, we can be wrong, but we do our research from reputable sources, and if we do not, we may just cheat ourselves out of the person best to fit the criteria we seek in a Candidate.
I no longer judge by hearsay, possibilities, lies from opponents, or a media who hates all but left. I challenge my mind, to get to as much truth as I can about those in whom I have options, and then choose the one who best serves my own thoughts of what I want my President to be. false witness, lies, deceit, and misinformation are the tools of any seeking the position against all others. Get to the truth, don't false judge, pre judge, or fall for tactics meant to deceive.
freedomfighter, very well put. You appear further along the path than I, but I am also trying to Walk the Walk. I truly believe we are close to the end times. I pray for God's Will be done in this election and that no matter who wins, I will be by that time so far removed (emotionally, etc.) from this Earth that I don't have a melt down.
End times my ass. The FBI, OSP, and possibly foreign mercinaries murdered Robert LaVoy Finnicum in Oregon. My state, how can we let that pass? The government lost when they killed LaVoy. It is just clean up from here on. We have our Constitutional republic back!! It is ours to lose.
This time we know how evil and corrupt POWER is and that starts with US inc.
I believe that it was Mark Twain who said, among other things, "If voting could change anything, they wouldn't let us do it."
Michael, while I vote and will continue to do so as it is one of our duties of citizenship, like you I have no expectations whatsoever that putting yet another sold out career politician lawyer into office will change anything except for the words they use to LIE to us and STEAL from us.
Like you, I also believe it is time, passed time really, for a "new" approach, that being the same one our God fearing, freedom loving Founders used, namely the right and duty to overthrow tyrants and those who side with them. I pray we may do so peacefully though I have no illusions that the traitors, yes TRAITORS in government will give up their power willingly. So let us pray God will forgive America's sins and Bless those of us who want to return our nation to His leadership once again. It is never too late if enough pray.
Meanwhile, we must also prepare for the worst case scenario while pledging our lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to the cause of restoring our lawful Constitutional Republic, dedicating our efforts to the one, true, and only God.
Do you think he died of natural causes??
I think that a man of his age and health care would die with someone present and holding his hand. Anything other than that is suspect.
