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?

best two o/o three.
Lets not forget Soros owns the voting machines.
his hanging chad no longer dangles However his evil Footprint is everywhere.
How did we ever get to this point in our history where just anyone can now become president? Have our politicians lost their minds and just don't care anymore about the Rule of Law according to our Constitution?
When will it stop and how do we stop it? They ignore the people's grievances and law suits to hold them accountable and the judges tell us we have no standing to prosecute those who violate their Oath. To what end do we the people get justice? Will it take an all out revolt to shake up the establishment? Is this what we need to do for them to understand that they are not a law unto themselves?
It's simple, yet seemingly lost on so many: We have the Second Amendment for a reason. It's well past time that we utilized it for its intended purpose.
read the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence for your marching orders..
We now live in a topsy turvy world, where Good is called bad, and Bad is called good. We live in a world which, if had been back in our Forefathers time, would not have been permitted. We live in a world, thanks to the PINO, in which we have lost all that has been fought for in this Country for 239 years, and which the founding Fathers did their best in penning our Constitution, to keep from occurring. We live in a world, which we ourselves have allowed, one step at a time, to the literal death of this once great Country. We live in a Barack Hussein Obama, P.C. world, which he has created, through the allowance of not only his own Government, but by we the people as well. We now cry because we have lost that which we cherished, and that which had cherished us, since it was fought for and won by those who demanded freedom for all of us.
Is it any wonder we are saddled under those things which are now coming to light as illegal, anti American, and anti We the People, when it has happened at the very highest seat in the land?. We have a illegal President, so why now is it so very important to scream foul, against those who have also been born from the very same mold as he who OWNS our Country?.
I have lived on this piece of dirt in the Universe, for a very long time. I have gained much knowledge, and have witnessed, how things work, and do not work, in this society. I have watched, in many homes, the dealing with Children who are born to push boundaries, and see how far they can get them to move, not at all unlike our PINO. I have watched personally, Children reach into the cookie jar, and take a cookie, and witnessed the various means of parents handling of the situation. Many parents look on, and say AH, how cute, and allow it to happen. Many parents look on, disapprovingly, but are quiet about it, many parents will tell the child to keep his/her hand out of the cookie jar, which is ALWAYS challenged by the child, to a varying degree of possibilities by the parents. Many parents will use the " I am going to count to three method“, which works for a while, then when the child pushes past that mark, seeing that words do not hurt, stretch to the 4, and 5 point, at which many parents just throw their hands up and let it pass, believing they cannot stop the cookie jar assault by the Child. BUT, there are some parents, especially those raised by their own parents to respect what their elders tell them, who will tell the child not to get into the cookie jar, and if the child disobeys, they will slap the hand of the child and tell them they meant what they said. Problem solved.
Is it any different scenario, with this President?. He does what he does, because his hand was not slapped by the parents, WE THE PEOPLE, when he did the first breaking of the laws of our Constitution. He began slowly in his agendas, by taking one right, one freedom, one step at a time, and we said well, it is only one thing and let it pass. We should have demanded, in unity, the very first time he broke our laws, that action be taken against him. Unfortunately, he has now found that he Could, and can, therefore he does. He has been let go so very long, that he has built a wall around himself, and passed so many laws, that he is nearly untouchable, plus there is the ALWAYS USED, race card which he plays against any and all who appose him.
We as the People of this Country, are mostly the blame for our woes, disapprovals, and grief’s. We allowed the first act to happen, and he has done it so slowly, at least in the beginning, that we were unaware of what the can, contained, which we opened without reading the label. The same cause and effect, we permitted unwittingly, or otherwise, still lies with us, and it is ONLY we who can stop the evil unleashed from the bottle. We must come together in one voice, and or one action, to undo that which has been allowed to sway, and finally accomplish his selfish, end goals. If not stopped, the full and complete destruction of our Country, We the People, and all our Forefathers authored and wrote the Constitution of these United States to protect, must ourselves take the cookie jar away from the Evil Child Chief who now runs our land. We have little time, and if we do not act as a whole, we will loose everything fought for, and earned for us since this Country's taking from the British, and saying NO MORE.
Well said Freedomfighter.
I used to write about what we were allowing and what we should do about it, but I got very tired of lack of interest. I too have lived of this piece of dirt a VERY long time, I am 86, lived through WW2 in England, the land of my birth. I came to the USA in 1950, married a USAF Pilot who gave 36 years of his life to this great country and died in 2013 aged 83, a very sad and broken man, having seen what we have all allowed the CinC to get away with. I believe that Obama will find reason to declare Martial Law and then reign supreme over what was always intended, a Muslim nation, controlled by you know who.
Let me add one thing to your letter, the CinC could not have done all this destruction to our nation without the help of some very powerful, wealthy people - probably the Muslim Czars he has hired, led by GEORGE SOROS. Obama is not smart enough to have done all this without help, Soros is.
What say you?
It is amusing to me when person running for office that owes nothing to political bosses scares the Hell out of that bunch of puppet masters ,manufacturing all sorts of false stories ,even down right lies so they can push tried and true puppets into office
For me ... for us to think or talk about the birthplace of Obama is a misdirection and should be stopped ... period.
No matter where he was born, it all ended when he became a citizen of Indonesia.
It alone matters.
As for Cruz thank you for this information..
