WOAH: Ted Cruz releases birth certificate

For someone who seems intent on dodging questions about a 2016 run, this certainly doesn’t seem like something I’d have expected him to do at this point. Surprise! It looks like to me he is definitely considering a run for the presidency. After all, why would he release it unless he were planning a run for president and wanted to allay concerns that he is a natural born citizen?



I think he’s going to be getting this question a lot over the next few days:

CRUZ_0819NAT_32638724

THE HILL – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) released his birth certificate to the Dallas Morning News on Sunday, a move that will undercut critics who say he’s ineligible to run for president.

Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother. The Constitution says only a “natural born” American citizen can become president, which includes those born overseas to American parents.

However, The Dallas Morning News reports that under Canadian law, Cruz’s birthplace of Calgary also made him an instant citizen of Canada. The Constitution doesn’t address whether someone with dual citizenship can run for the highest office.

Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier disputed the notion that Cruz was also a citizen of Canada.

“Senator Cruz became a U.S. citizen at birth, and he never had to go through a naturalization process after birth to become a U.S. citizen,” she told The Dallas Morning News. “To our knowledge, he never had Canadian citizenship, so there is nothing to renounce.”

 Colonial American women’s rights were restricted by the patriarchal view
of English Common Law. As in England, women were viewed as chattel and
had no individual legal rights. However, American frontier life and the
small http://www.ehow.com/about_4571155_colonial-womens-rights.html# allowed some Colonial women to have more legal and personal rights in the Colonies than in England.

K-Bobkssturgis62That’s true. To bolster that statement, yesterday I posted; “To be a ‘natural born citizen’ both parents are to be citizens at the time of birth and IF born out of country must be born within a jurisdiction subject to the laws of the U.S. (i.e. a permanent military base or embassy). This is clever though, because in order to attack Cruz on his eligibility, the oCommiebots would have to admit oCommie is ineligible. There is no Constitution anymore, so at this point, to quote a well known wit of the commie assault on America, “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!!!!” Which in its essence was simply a restatement of Sen. Res. 511 http://www.opencongress.org/bill/110-sr511/text while acknowledging that it doesn’t make a difference at this point since the current potus is serving and his lapdog media would be foolish to bring it up to open the whole issue once again and seriously… Read more »

As much of a constitutional conservative as I am, in my opinion, we are at war. At war with the communist left that wants to dilute and destroy America. Rarely do those involved in war play by the rules – that does not mean we should disregard our Constitution, but if we are to take back this country and save it, we need to bend the rules a bit – use the left’s weapons against them and hijack their narrative. You see, Cruz is the perfect candidate. The left had no choice BUT to deem him eligible because not deeming him eligible would mean that Obama is not eligible either – classic Catch-22. And by doing this, they have set their own death trap. You cannot attack Ted Cruz because of eligibilty – because you’d be a phony birther (by their own logic). You cannot attack Ted Cruz because he’s… Read more »

all you have to do is google ted cruz and you will find out he is a giant in experience compared to oCommie’s resume
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Cruz
make sure you scroll down to his legal experience
here is one excerpt;
Cruz has authored more than 80 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Supreme_Court briefs and presented 43 oral arguments, including nine before the United States Supreme Court.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Cruz#cite_note-RussLaw360MorganLew-3https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Cruz#cite_note-WashPostWeinerDershowitz-19https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Cruz#cite_note-HarvLawBulWilsonFall2012-17 In the landmark case of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/District_of_Columbia_v._Heller, Cruz drafted the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amicus_curiae brief signed by attorneys general of 31 states

However, at the least, Ted Cruz did what was right. Bravo for him.

poptoy1949  Unfortunately, the door was opened when people in positions of responsibility refused to vet obama’s presidential eligibility.  Under the framework that exists to analyze whether a person is a “natural born citizen,” cruz has a much stronger claim to the definition than obama.

“as per selective definition” you mean.
Since there are several “definitions” going clear back to before the founding, no clear, “offical” definition exists.
NONE.
Of course, many folks who have decided on one of the several definitions like to claim otherwise, but I prefer the truth.  The truth has no agenda.
And I’d fully embrace a REAL definition (which would require an Amendment), even if it meant Cruz were not eligible.  But we don’t have one.  All we have is convention, and legal opinions handed down through the ages.
As of this moment, he is completely eligible.  Not one of the only-my-definition-matters folks will keep him off a ballot.

He hasn’t opted out to run for potus and I think Ted likes being ahead of the press. He’s an attorney I’m sure he knows the ins and outs of being a USA citizen. Maybe he is is the cat toying with the mouse. Go for it!

FreedomlivesOrangeoneWomen had ZERO rights in the US.  They were sold and families paid to marry them off.  The Constitutional amendment to vote was not until 1920, 50 full years after blacks. Women could not own property it went to their husband.
Here’s an interesting link on women in college. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090204210857AA6XD8I
It was also not until the 1980s that a woman could press sexual assault charges against her husband in all 50 states. 
Perhaps George permitted Martha to retain her wealth, but that was not the law of this land. Check the Constitution, it only refers to men.  Now, women have not rioted for reparations and I do not support that. We have grown as a country and are a stronger nation because of our heritage.

Orangeone  I have to disagree with you on that one.  Women were never considered “property” by law (excepting slavery) in this country.  There were plenty of monied and powerful women, starting with Martha Washington.  Her family had the money, not George
