When are news organizations and political experts going to gas up the Ted Cruz was not “natural born” movement.
Article II, Section 1, Clause 5
“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; ”
President Obama had to suffer through his birther nonsense. He still does. So why does Ted Cruz, born in Canada, get a pass. Cruz supporters claim that the constitutional birth requirement is satisfied if a candidate is foreign born, as long as his/her parents were US citizens.
But was Momma Cruz a US citizen prior to baby Teddies’ birth?
It now appears that both of Cruz’s parents may have been Canadian at the time of the blessed event.
Questions are raised in a documented timeline of public records and legal experts published by the Examiner online.
The Examiner also notes that a recent FOIA request for Cruz’s US naturalization papers, “if they exist,” was denied. An FOIA would have to be requested by Cruz himself.
So Senator Cruz: Quit the cover up, and release your birth records so the American people can know if you are violating the United States Constitution, a document you have professed to revere on many occasions.
Even if Cruz can prove his citizenship, he is still in hot water.
When President Obama was subjected to questions about his birthright he was in exactly the same position Cruz maintains he is in today; born of a mother born in the USA.
That is the identical status Trump and others have claimed rendered Obama ineligible to serve as President:
Obama born in Kenya; mother born in the USA.
Cruz born in Canada; mother born in the USA
By the way, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 has never been legally tested. A lawsuit was filed against Obama in 2008 but it was thrown out because the claimant didn’t have standing. The Supreme Court declined to hear the case.
Finally, before the Trump bullshit on this begins, Hillary had nothing to do with the birther movement as Donald and his tragic hair have repeatedly claimed.
What are we waiting for? A GOP presidential candidate is out there violating the Constitution. Let’s giddy-up and bring him to justice.
