Ted Cruz and the GOP are smaching the pedal to the metal and hoping that you don’t catch on. The latest move by Rafael Cruz aka Ted Cruz is to fast and lose with his mommy’s citizenship.
Why? Cause it shows just how deceptive and out of touch with reality that not only the GOP is, but that they (the GOP) and their lapdog media will push any candidate they want regardless of the law.
First off, let’s post mommy Cruz’s birth certificate. Here it is,
What does it prove?
It proves that mommy Cruz was in fact born in the US. OK, we are good with that. That still is about mommy and not Rafael (Ted) Cruz, who was born in Canada.
Here again is Rafael (Ted) Cruz’s birth certificate
So what we have is Rafael (Ted) Cruz born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to a foreign father, Rafael Bienvenido Cruz (a Cuban national), and a Elanoe Elizabeth Wilson (a US Citizen).
Now, let’s do the math Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz born in a foreign country (Canada) to a foreign father (Cuban) and a US Citizen mother (US Citizen)
(Foreign born) (Foreign father) (US Mother) correct? How does this eqaul the following?
“Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.” (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))
Natural Born Citizen per the United States Congress in 1866
(Born in the United States) (US Citizen Parents, meaning BOTH Dad and Mom)
again, in 1875 The United States Supreme Court
The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first.
-Chief Justice Waite in Minor v. Happersett (1875)
again (Born in the United States) (US Citizen Parents, meaning BOTH Dad and Mom)
Are they equal?
1866; (Born in the United States) (US Citizen Parents, meaning BOTH Dad and Mom)
1875; (Born in the United States) (US Citizen Parents, meaning BOTH Dad and Mom)
Rafael (Ted) Cruz (Foreign born) (Foreign father) (US Mother)
No they are not equal. Not even close.
But, let’s look at the United States Constitution.
What are the requirements for being a Representitive or Senator?
Article 1 sec 2
No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.
Please make note: a citizen
Now a Senator, COTUS
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.
Again make note: a citizen
Now, what does the Constitution say about the ‘requirements’ of the President?
Art 2 sec 1
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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
Note the difference: a natural born citizen A higher standatrd. The Founding Fathers understood the importance of keeping foreign influence out of the highest office and that was only accomplished by a higher standard of qualification. John Jay’s letter to George Washington is point and to the fact.
Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expresly that the Command in chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.
Rafael (Ted) Cruz does not meet the higher standard of being a ‘natural born citizen’ as required per the United States Constitution to hold the office of the President of the United States.
Rafael (Ted) Cruz, does meet the requirement of holding either the office of a Representive or Senator, but not the Presidency, and no amount of warping or twisting ‘mommy’s birth certificate’ will make him one.
So Rafael (Ted) Cruz’s mommy birth certificate proves Rafael (Ted) Cruz is a United States Citizen, but not a United States Natural Born Citizen.
