How Ted Cruz Can Stop Immigration Abuse NOW!

As a self-described "constitutional expert" Canadian born Cruz could do us all a great service to stop illegal immigration by simply answer 4 teeny weeny questions...

The Complete Concordance of Cruz Corruption, Deceptions and Lies

Reagan was attacked by the Establishment, but people LIKED him. Cruz on the other hand is despised by mild mannered Huckabee and "sealed lips" George W. There is a reason. Here is an (almost) complete compendium of Cruz lies.

Why Isn't Anyone Discussing the SCOTUS Ruling on Natural Born Citizen?

There is a lie being told that "Natural Born Citizen" is not defined anywhere in the Constitution. That's True. What's Not True is that it is NOT settled by the Supreme Court. (It has)

Ted Cruz Takes More Wall Street Money than Hillary Clinton

When you see who REALLY is running Ted's campaign, you realize how "inside" this pretend outsider is. The top CIA, Goldman Sachs executives are LITERALLY running his campaign.

The Concordance of Cruz Corruption, Deception and Lies


When I helped Ted get elected to Senate, I was convinced he was a principled, Christian conservative unlike any we had seen for ages.  With his outright evasion over his citizenship and eligibility, i put down my cup of Cruz Kool-Aid and wanted to find the facts.  There are enough that I feel it necessary to begin organizing them for reference.

If you have any suggestions/additions - please send them by using the CONTACT  page, at the top of this blog.  (Please, no opinion pieces, attacks on Ted's family or religion or personality.)

Citizenship

***BREAKING**** CNN: Princeton Debate Member says Cruz claimed he was a dual citizen.


In 2014, Ted Cruz claimed that did not know he still had Canadian citizenship, and formally revoked it.

At right is a clip from a New Hampshire Cruz rally where a 17 year old, first time voter asked how it was possible that Cruz did not know this all along, especially since he was a constitutional expert.  Cruz refused to answer the question, instead claiming that contrary to multiple Supreme Court cases and writings of the founders, "it has always been that way."

Even when CNN asks Ted to cite the specific legal argument - Cruz simply says "the Constitution is very clear"  - something even legal scholars supporting Cruz's position overwhelmingly deny.

However, Michael Lubetsky, a Canadian who was on the Princeton debate team with Cruz, has come forward saying that not only did Cruz know, he talked about it often.

Campaign Lies, Deceptions and Privacy Invasion
Few Cruz supporters - or Texans - know that Ted began his Presidential campaign THREE MONTHS into taking his Senate seat a a first time congressmen.  He disingenuously denied he had already begun running even while spending an inordinate amount of time and money in primary states.

Ted Cruz has taken a book from Adolph Hitler and Barak Obama in taking a big lie and proclaiming it so loudly, that no one would suspect someone like him would possibly make it.  For example, He says in a fund raising letter that he "will never get" nor does he want "money from D.C. lobbyists or the special interest billionaires."  His own filings tell a completely different story. (h/t The Gateway Pundit)



THIS WON'T END BECAUSE OF WHO CRUZ HIRED
Here is a real sign of character.  When he was running for Senate, the Dewhurst campaign sent out a mailer smearing and lying that Cruz represented a Chinese company stealing American blueprints.  He even claimed he was incensed since it went to his father.  What did Cruz do?  He hired the man who created the mailer TO BE HIS presidential campaign architect.  A man who had no national political success to speak of at that time, but a reputation to be "the worst" of dirty politics, including driving some opponents to suicide.


THE GOLDMAN SACHS AND CITIBANK LOAN LIES

Ron Paul came out yesterday created a furor by saying of Cruz, "he’s owned by Goldman Sachs."  The CrowdPAC chart to the right shows that not only is he the largest recipient of Wall Street donations, he has MORE than Hillary. Suddenly those undisclosed loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank take on a new light.  Two big reasons why this is damning:
  1. The law is clear.  So either Cruz can't manage accurate reporting (something he has derided political opponents and the White House about), or he was lying.
  2. He was already caught lying about this.  Cruz had an eloquent story he originally told:
 “Sweetheart, I’d like us to liquidate our entire net worth, liquid net worth, and put it into the campaign,” he says he told his wife, Heidi, who readily agreed.
The truth is "liquidate" to Ted was to get a sweetheart loan from his wife's employer and the CAMPAIGN paid it back.   The Cruz's were never out a penny.  And it was a Hillary-like "we were broke" moment.

Getting confirmation from the FEC of these violations, a former Cruz supporter jumped to Trump after hearing Ted blatantly lie about the facts..  A Must Read with FEC documentation.

Ted Cruz Can Strengthen Immigration Now


Why do Cruz supporters who claim Ted is every bit as strong on illegal immigration issues as Trump, not actually ASK for documentation from their candidate to prove he is even a US citizen let alone a natural born one?

They will (rightly) demand current US residents who can not prove their right to be here to either be deported or at least penalized as Cruz originally suggested in his green card plan.  NOT ONE CRUZ SUPPORTER WOULD ACCEPT the "word" of Iraqi, Syrian or Mexican immigrant without proof.  Many have tweeted, posted and blogged about the 650,000 California Driver's Licenses that went to illegals in 2015.  But, when given a chance to themselves, do their own due diligence on someone of question, there is bupkis or deflection.  Isn't this hypocritical?

And there is a little document called a Consular Record of Birth Abroad (CRBA) that is required for foreign born children of US parents to file to retain the right to their United States citizenship.  It has been in existence since 1919 (Ancestry.com uses it to build family trees) and you can even read about it at the United States Consulate in Toronto, Canada.

Where is Ted's CRBA?   Why aren't Cruz supporters demanding it like they did Obama's records?


Ted Cruz is clear on where he stands regarding his eligibility.  In Laconia, New Hampshire at a campaign rally, a 17 year old, first time voter wanted to know why it took 43 years for Cruz to know he was still a Canadian citizen, much less formally file to renounce it.  The kid wasn't especially respectful (the full exchange here) and of course, Ted never actually answered it.  He claims the facts are clear.  His mother was born in Deleware, he was born in Calgary, Canada, and then he rushes very quickly to say that his parents "lived there."  (He wisely doesn't mention his father's citizenship or the fact his father chose Canadian asylum over US.)


As you see in the NH stump video above, it is his position that:
"Under US law, the child of a citizen born abroad, is a natural born citizen."

https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/abroad/events-and-records/birth.html
State Department Mandate for US Children born abroad
Notice he didn't say "the Constitution."  We don't know which law to which he is referring.  His surrogates were broadly pushing the Immigration of Act of 1790 which, unfortunately for he and Mark Levin, was actually repealed in 1795.  Moreover we have the House Subcommittee notes (PDF) explaining the reason for the repeal (rather than merely amend) precisely because they didn't want anyone to assume a foreign born child of US parents would automatically become a "natural born citizen."

So whether or not the "law" that he believes miraculously entitles him to "natural born" status exists or not, there is a law for US parents of foreign born children like Ted.  It requires the CRBA to be filed prior to the child's 18th birthday along with other stipulations.

If they do NOT file this, they are not even to be considered US citizens.

The founders had very good reasons to be concerned about foreign infiltration and influence into the most powerful position of our government.   So much so, that George Washington had the eligibility rules for President and Vice President in the Constitution changed from a mere "citizen born" on US soil, to a "natural born citizen" in the final draft.  Contrary to the spin that Obama acolytes used to make (and now Cruz's), there is an enormous mound of evidence clearly defining "natural born citizen" from private letters from John Jay (who would become the first Supreme Court Chief Justice), to the Federalist papers to Supreme Court rulings.  Even Winston Churchill - who like Cruz had a US born mother, a foreign father and was born on foreign soil - knew (and said) that the Constitution would need to be amended for him to be eligible to run for President of the United States.

Which leaves a few questions for Senator Cruz.

  • Which law gives you "natural born citizen" status as a foreign born child of one US parent?

  • Since all other foreign born children of US parents had to file a Consular Record of Birth Abroad before they were
    18 years old, did your mother file one?  Where is your copy (or will you ask for the State Department to release it)?

  • Can you explain why the Founders went to extreme measures to only exempt "citizens born in the US" at the signing of the Constitution but used "natural born citizens" in the final draft which Founder/Historian David Ramsey clearly stated excluded foreign born children? 

  • Can you explain why in 1875 the Supreme Court said that the term "natural born citizen," though not defined in the Constitution was "never doubted" to be a child born on US soil to TWO (2) US citizen parents?

Cruz followers; if you love the Constitution as much as you say you do, isn't it your obligation for every candidate (including Marco Rubio) to provide PROOF that they are at least a Citizen of the United States for a Driver's License, much less to serve as the chief of all Federal law enforcement over our country?

Here's a bonus.  Just think how idiotic you can make those of us questioning this look if the documents are provided by your candidate and the answers to the questions above are clearly answered.

If not, you at least can take pride in doing your civic duty in defending the Constitution and our beloved United States of America against ALL forces - foreign and domestic - that might try to weaken us.

Ted Cruz's Ties to the CIA, Wall Street and Banks is Scary


It just gets more and more interesting.  If you hate liberty and believe the NSA has a right to spy on you, you'll love Ted Cruz.

In addition to Heidi and Ted's many big bank, big government, CIA ties, we now find that a shadowy SuperPAC, with millions from unidentified donors is run by the former attorney for Mitch McConnell and attack ALL Cruz competitors.  Another operative attached is Keats Norfleet, who operated the career of Super RINO Dwayne Bohac in Texas.

One of the big donors behind this? German born Peter Thiel (founder of Paypal) with DEEP CIA/FBI/DARPA ties.  Thiel was one of the first investors of Facebook and as biggest shareholder in Palantir, is deeply enmeshed with government at all levels including the Obama White House.  Palantir recruits the likes of former counsel to Joe Biden.  Anonymous uncovered efforts by Thiel's company to "spread disinformation" about journalist Greg Greenwald's work.  Clearly they are more than software company.

We already learned that former DHS head Michael Chertoff hired a former Goldman Sachs executive to combine all the information flows from ALL intelligence communities (NSA/FBI/CIA/DHS/NSA), and that former Goldman Sachs exec is now Chertoff's partner, and CHIEF of Ted Cruz's campaign.

Ron Paul came out yesterday created a furor by saying of Cruz, "he’s owned by Goldman Sachs."  The CrowdPAC chart to the right shows that not only is he the largest recipient of Wall Street donations, he has MORE than Hillary.

Suddenly those undisclosed loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank take on a new light.  Two big reasons why this is damning:

  1. The law is clear.  So either Cruz can't manage accurate reporting (something he has derided political opponents and the White House about), or he was lying.
  2. He was already caught lying about this.  Cruz had an eloquent story he originally told:
 “Sweetheart, I’d like us to liquidate our entire net worth, liquid net worth, and put it into the campaign,” he says he told his wife, Heidi, who readily agreed.
The truth is "liquidate" to Ted was to get a sweetheart loan from his wife's employer and the CAMPAIGN paid it back.   The Cruz's were never out a penny.  And it was a Hillary-like "we were broke" moment.

With Ted backing Obama on eliminating US sovereignty with his vote on TPP, and Heidi trying to hide her ties to former World Bank President, the Agenda 21 EU-like North American Union effort, and her role as director for the Western Hemisphere on the National Security Council under Condoleezza Rice, it's not a reach to see a systematic suppression of Heidi and Ted's Big Government and Wall Street backgrounds that existed for Ted up until 10 years ago and hasn't stopped with Heidi. 

(As to Cruz's deflection attempt to claim this is an attack on his wife, it is CRUZ who says he doesn't make a major decision without her and she is his "closest adviser.",  Heidi gloats she is "one half of a great team."  Moreover, former Goldman turned DHS/CIA turned Chertoff Group turned Cruz Campaign Chief Chad Sweet (who recruited Heidi at Goldman) says, "She works the phones the way she worked them when she was at Goldman."  You can't have it both ways.)

Regardless, Cruz is at least a lying opportunist, and more likely, something much, much worse.

Expect government infringement on ALL of your communications not only to continue under a Cruz administration - expect them to expand.

Why Are Cruz Christians Allowing Themselves to be Deceived?


**********
UPDATE: Christian Evangelical icon Mike Huckabee, one of the most gentle, soft spoken candidates ever, is openly calling Ted Cruz  "“Nasty…Stealing…Lowlife…Sleazy…”  Reminds you also of George W. Bush, who says NOTHING bad even about Obama or other competitors to his brother, but has open disdain for Ted.   This should not be taken likely.
**********

I detest the Cruz, Rubio, Trump and Jeb supporters who can't be honest about their own candidate's failings.  Almost all of these people seem to be Christian, but they some how think it's fine to act like liberals and not acknowledge even the BASIC flaws of their candidate, defending lies and worse.  Why is that?

Worse, they don't do even basic research to find out who they are really defending.  If their candidate says it they ignorantly just assume it must be true then find themselves terribly embarrassed (and discredited) over defending actions that are not only unethical but calculated.  And as I explain below, this will keep happening to Ted Cruz.  It is intentional.

Now that the Caucus fraud has been irrefutably proven that the Cruz campaign intentionally misrepresented Carson's situation to steal votes even after Carson sent a corrected release (here and here) - not one of the Judeo/Christian Cruz supporters has had the integrity to admit they were wrong.  In their eyes it's just "politics" and hypocritically won't admit they would be hammering this 24/7 if it happened to their candidate.  In just one precinct where Cruz's operatives were pushing the lie, Ben Carson's WIFE walked in as Cruz operatives were spreading the lies, and Carson ended up in SECOND place- much more in line with the pre-caucus polling.  These people are like Obots who still claim Barry has saved the economy and is a Christian.  Stick your head in the sand.  Who cares if the Soros-affiliated PR head of the Cruz campaign who was caught red handed trying to blame Trump as well.  No wonder our children and nation have no moral compass.
What gets me, is a lot of these people endorsed the RINO-Rubio loving Santorum in the last election, (who misled a huge number of Christians because they didn't do even BASIC research into fact checking his representations) - they are now doing the same with Cruz.  His campaign is run by a former  Goldman Sachs executive who profited from the push of TSA scanning machines, his wife STILL is employed by Goldman Sachs on leave, and his campaign originally tried to HIDE her ties to the Council of Foreign Relations and her ex-World Bank President boss on Wikipedia, much less his loans from them.   Nothing to see here, move along....unless it's Chelsea.  

A normally intelligent TEA Party activist here in Texas wrote a puff piece on Ted Cruz "What We Know About Ted Cruz in Texas" and refused to address that he actively pushed and defended Bush's NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND.  She did the same with Santorum.  Apparently, she doesn't have an ability to admit ANY wrongdoing - just like our current Muslim President.  These people seem oblivious that Heidi Cruz helped write and promote the EU-like Agenda 21 North American Union plan.  Yet nary a peep from my supposed conservative friends about Ted's vote with Barak Barry to hand over American sovereignty with his support of TPP

You'd think that after Cruz told gay donors at a NY apartment (where a gay bartender died of drug overdose only six months earlier).that he would have "no problem" if one of his daughter was gay at the SAME TIME he was in churches condemning the gay lifestyle, they'd start to look a bit more closely at him.

Of course not.  And the fact that Ted changed his big government rhetoric just 10 years ago as he began to orchestrate his calculated political quest?  No biggie.  Who cares if Ted Cruz never had any intention of actually serving the people of Texas as Senator.  Only three (3) months after taking his Senate seat, he began running for President as National Review reporter Robert Costa explains in this radio interview. Who cares if he has the second worst attendance record in the Senate and can't be bothered to show up even 50% of the time for his position on the Armed Services Committee.  Rubio is even worse.  (That's right, Hillary had a better attendance record than Marco Rubio.)

Besides Cruz/Rubio who were the most recent first term Senators who had this bad of a voting record who began running for POTUS?  Barack Hussein Obama.  And Hillary Clinton.

There is no perfect politician.  Cruz still has done some great conservative things.  But the inability for CHRISTIANS to accept meditated deception and lying is disgusting.  Can't you still support "your guy" but at least be honest about what they do or did?
All candidates try to put a spin on their accomplishments. But Cruz's abilities are premeditated and Clintonian.  As Sarah Palin expressed, one of her reasons for not endorsing the man she put into the Senate, was that he lied on his immigration record.  He was ok.  But he continually lies about what his real positions were and revises history to score cheap political points, rather than simply be truthful about what he said and did at the time.  Politico documents just THREE of these instances here in their article entitled, "Ted Cruz may be the most gifted liar to run for President."  Hate Trump and Rubio, but they at least admit they held contrary opinions on many things before they ran for President and explain why.

It's not just immigration.  It's almost everything else which is why even his conservative Senate fellows dislike him.  Chuck Grassley called Cruz's Criminal Justice Reform where he wanted to do away with minimum mandatory sentences as "lenient," and now pretends it never happened.  And worse, Ted ended up supporting NOTHING of value in the end.  As a Texan, can I get my money back?

Ron Paul came out yesterday created a furor by saying of Cruz, "he’s owned by Goldman Sachs."  The CrowdPAC chart to the right shows that not only is he the largest recipient of Wall Street donations, he has MORE than Hillary. Suddenly those undisclosed loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank take on a new light.  Two big reasons why this is damning:

  1. The law is clear.  So either Cruz can't manage accurate reporting (something he has derided political opponents and the White House about), or he was lying.
  2. He was already caught lying about this.  Cruz had an eloquent story he originally told:
 “Sweetheart, I’d like us to liquidate our entire net worth, liquid net worth, and put it into the campaign,” he says he told his wife, Heidi, who readily agreed.
The truth is "liquidate" to Ted was to get a sweetheart loan from his wife's employer and the CAMPAIGN paid it back.   The Cruz's were never out a penny.  And it was a Hillary-like "we were broke" moment.

**UPDATE** via TheGatewayPundit
And then there is THIS from the Ted Cruz campaign.  He says in a fund raising letter that he "will never get" nor does he want "money from D.C. lobbyists or the special interest billionaires."  And yet like Obama and Clinton BLATANTLY deceives based upon his own filings.




THIS WON'T END BECAUSE OF WHO CRUZ HIRED
Here is a real sign of character.  When he was running for Senate, the Dewhurst campaign sent out a mailer smearing and lying that Cruz represented a Chinese company stealing American blueprints.  He even claimed he was incensed since it went to his father.  What did Cruz do?  He hired the man who created the mailer TO BE HIS presidential campaign architect.  A man who had no national political success to speak of at that time, but a reputation to be "the worst" of dirty politics, including driving some opponents to suicide.  What a perfect fit for a conservative Christian that will have to shed the "mean hypocritical Christian" label if he runs in a general election!  (I can't seem to find my sarcasm font - but you get the idea)
THE ENTIRE GOAL of the CRUZ CAMPAIGN ARCHITECT IS TO WIN DISHONESTLY, even if it means falsely accusing a fellow Christian.  And Ted Cruz embraces it.

Christians are told to judge a tree by it's fruit.  But instead of actually LOOKING at the fruit, they are buying everything the snake in the garden is telling them it is.

Hey Politijim, Rubio, Trump, (and everyone else) have worse sins!  Why single out Cruz??

Because, it's the HYPOCRISY stupid!  Who did Jesus curse?  Those who CLAIMED they were perfect and were keeping the Law.  Did you ever notice that God references 4 women in Jesus's lineage that ALL don't belong there by Old Testament Law?  Ruth was a Moabite and shouldn't have been allowed in a temple much less the bloodline of God.  Tamar seduced and slept with her Father in Law.  Rahab was a prostitute.  Bathsheba an exhibitionist who bathed nude so King David could see her.

You hate Trump because he had more than one wife?  Then you had better hate King David and Ronald Reagan.  Dislike Rubio because he was likely gay?  Then Cruz can't be any better declaring that he's fine if his daughter is.

If you are a Christian, you are saved by GRACE and nothing else.  There isn't a single Bible character God used who was the Billy Graham or Mother Theresa of their day.  But he DOES look at the heart.  Reagan hated abortion and even expanded it in California.  But at least he could explain why he changed and didn't try and excuse his past decisions.  He owned up to them.  The only thing I've heard Cruz say he made a mistake was being arrogant on the Bush campaign.  Sure he said he could do better on tithing, but then he LIED to the Christian reporter saying it only happened when he was "newly married man."  The truth is that long after he was "newly married" his entire reported GIVING (much less his 10% tithing) was only 0.86%.  (Mitt Romney, who most evangelicals despised gave between 20% to 30% in any given year.)

Do you want a candidate who is transparent with who he is, or one that is continually crafting a false image to deceive people?

And it's worse.  Much, much worse.  Ted has been working with Mitch McConnell, including funding the NRSC - who he castigated and castigates as RINO's - from his own PAC since he got in office!
You’ll note Senator Ted Cruz never once campaigned for a conservative challengers to incumbents in the 2014 mid-term campaign races – nor did he ever discuss the absence of a federal budget now the republicans were in control of both the House and the Senate.
While publicly railing against what he called the DC Cartel, a group he was bound to assist from his prior pledge to them, he worked to deliver their goals nonetheless. 
And NOW we find that a shadowy SuperPAC, with millions from unidentified donors is run by the former attorney for Mitch McConnell and attack ALL Cruz competitors.  One of the big donors behind this? German born Peter Thiel founder of Paypal with DEEP CIA/FBI/DARPA ties.  Thiel was one of the first investors of Facebook and as biggest shareholder in Palantir, is deeply enmeshed with government at all levels including the Obama White House.  Anonymous uncovered efforts by Thiel's company to "spread disinformation" about journalist Greg Greenwald's work.

Up until two years ago, Cruz would wax poetic on the legal justification for everything from an anti-abortion Constitutional amendment to ...whatever.  It was his calling card as an originalist, Constitutional lawyer who had argued cases before the Supreme Court.  Just look how articulate he is in discussing the ObamaCare, Gay Marriage and Judicial retention rulings and Constitutional Amendments.  

But just like in the interview above he said "I'm not interested in trashing other Republicans," and now castigates his opponents daily - he also reverses course when it comes to his true eligibility.  In October of 2013 he was asked if he can run for President since he was born in Canada and at that time had STILL not renounced his Canadian citizenship.  His answer?  "I won't get into the legal arguments."

Now WHY would someone with such experience, legal brilliance and superb communication skills NOT take a chance to address it?
I submit it's because he ALREADY KNOWS the truth.  


He knows the John Jay and George Washington changed the first draft of the Constitution to strengthen the qualifications for President from someone merely born in the US to anyone, to someone who has to be born in the US to TWO CITIZEN PARENTS.  He knows the Immigration Act of 1790, which his campaign and operatives tout to allow foreign born citizens to be considered "natural born citizens" was not just amended BUT REPEALED, and replaced with the Act of 1795 that makes it clear foreign born citizens are NOT "natural born citizens."  We even have the ORIGINAL House of Representative notes that explains why they thought foreign born candidates like Cruz, or US soil born candidates without two US citizen parents like Rubio and Valarie Jarrett - were unconstitutional.  He knows that there have been a myriad of SCOTUS cases that EXPLICITLY address the issue.  And he knows most of America, even most of his Christian followers, will buy his lighthearted dismissal the same way Obama followers did.

You feel there is no other alternative but Cruz?  Great.  Support him.  But please spare the rest of us your sanctimonious lies that he doesn't have some very, very serious issues.

At LEAST do us the favor of obtaining DOCUMENTATION of his US Citizenship.  Since 1919 the Federal Government has required a Consular Record of Birth Abroad, to be filed by the US citizen parent (with the child appearing before the US immigration official).  So forget "natural born citizen" for a minute.  Since Ted was born in Calgary, he could at least prove HE came here legally, and followed the rules that millions of others have had to claim their CITIZENSHIP honestly.  That would be a good start.

About that Lie that SCOTUS Never Defined "Natural Born Citizen"



Apparently many conservatives are now global warming liberals who believe there should be NO honest debate about anything THEY disagree with it.  Including the Constitution.  Despite Ted Cruz formerly endorsing NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND and George W. Bush's excessive spending when he worked for him, they totally believe everything he or Mark Levin say.   Since he is a self proclaimed "constitutional expert" they feel they have no responsibility to actually LOOK any further, despite it swinging a door wide open for Iranian Born Valarie Jarrett to become President.

The biggest lie is that there is no Supreme Court ruling, or definition of "natural born citizen."  despite actually being settled in numerous SCOTUS cases and other writings of the Founders.  

Here is your cheat sheet to stopping a potential future foreign takeover of the most powerful office in the world.

The first draft of the Constitution did not designate "natural born" citizen (NBC) but was changed following a letter from inaugural Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay to Geo Washington arguing that foreign powers could easily find ways to take over the Presidency if they weren't NBC.  

John Jay wrote:
Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the Command in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.
See a transcription of Jay’s letter to Washington at this link.

Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of U.S. Constitution as adopted 17 September 1787 (emphasis mine):
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.
NOTICE there is an exemption for mere “citizens” alive at the time of the adoption of the Constitution – but a “natural born” citizen is something else.   If it only meant naturalized citizen, then WHY WAS IT CHANGED?

Historian and Founder David Ramsey explicitly addressed this in his writings in 1789:

In his 1789 article, Ramsay first explained who the “original citizens” were and then defined the “natural born citizens” as the children born in the country to citizen parents. He said concerning the children born after the declaration of independence, “[c]itizenship is the inheritance of the children of those who have taken part in the late revolution; butt his is confined exclusively to the children of those who were themselves citizens….” Id.at 6. He added that “citizenship by inheritance belongs to none but the children of those Americans, who, having survived the declaration of independence, acquired that adventitious character in their own right, and transmitted it to their offspring….” Id. at 7.He continued that citizenship “as a natural right, belongs to none but those who have been born of citizens since the 4th of July, 1776….” Id. at 6.



Even GLOBALIST LIBERALS, wrote in the Kent-Chicago Law Review in 2005 argued that the Constitution needed to be AMENDED to do away with the fact foreign born children aren’t “natural born citizens.
the natural born citizen provision is controversial because it prevents over 12.8 million Americans from being eligible for the presidency.

The immigration of Act of 1790 Mark Levin cites was REPEALED, because it erroneously legitimized foreign born kids to US parents (plural) as NBC. (Mark Levin the supposed "expert" claimed it was still in effect by the way.) It specifically corrected this in the Act of 1795 and we have the House Committee notes explicitly explaining that it was because of this very issue.

The Supreme Court DID explicitly address the issue of NBC in Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 167 (1875) (“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.”);

A second SCOTUS case (U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 665 (1898)), citied Minor and quoting without criticism its common law definition of a natural born citizen. This means in a SECOND case they didn't argue against the earlier finding.
There are actually many many other acts, laws, and documentations clearly show Rubio/Cruz/Jindal ineligible.  
  • Venus, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 253 (1814)
  • Shanks v DuPont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830)
  • Dred Scott v Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857)
  • Minor v Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1875)
  • United States v Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)
  • Perkins v. Elg, 307 U.S. 325 (1939)

Now to REALLY blow your mind.  There have been numerous attempts since 1975 to change this by Congressional LAW.  Since 2003, there have been 8 attempts alone.  IF EVERYONE ALREADY “KNEW” NBC was merely naturalized citizens, why have there been people trying to change it for the past 40 years?  (Attempts to Redefine or Amend Article II “Natural Born Citizen” Clause of the United States Constitution)
Ironically we have testimony of a famous foreign-born leader whose mother was American, and his father foreign. He was granted honorary citizenship and was asked by reporters if he would run for President of the United States. He said, “I am, as you know, half American by blood, and the story of my association with that mighty and benevolent nation goes back nearly ninety years to the day of my father's marriage. There are various little difficulties in the way. However, I have been treated so splendidly in the United States that I should be disposed, if you can amend the Constitution, seriously to consider the matter."

You know him as, Winston Churchill.

One last note. WHY is there an exemption for foreign born citizens in Article II "alive at the ratification" of the Constitution if they too would automatically be natural born citizens? The Founders were some of the most highly educated men in the WORLD as well as our country. They didn't use words casually. So merely consider that this WAS important to them and for a reason.

Otherwise, Iranian Born, Chief of Staff and Communist Valarie Jarrett – is also eligible since BOTH of her parents were Americans.
