Ted Cruz Releases Birth
Certificate, Is Eligible to Run for
President, Canadian Parliament

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/19/2013 11:29:31 AM

Texas Senator and potential 2016 candidate for the Republican nomination Ted Cruz released his birth certificate to the Dallas Morning News on Sunday, in an attempt to quell a minor birther movement that has questioned Cruz’s American citizenship and eligibility to be president. The certificate confirms that Cruz was born in Alberta, Canada. As his mother was an American citizen, he is one as well, but as he was born on Canadian soil he also became a Canadian citizen. Cruz maintains citizenship for both nations until he formally renounces one or the other. The dual citizenship allows him to run

Cruz is toast, anyway, as far as a presidential run. The mainstream media has settled on Christie, for Pubbie nominee, Hildabeast, for democrat nominee, McCain for Hildabeast´s running mate, and the Pillsbury Doughboy for Christie´s running mate.

In a race between fat and ugly, ugly always wins.

Alberta, Canada... My second home. And I agree, let´s annex the entire province now!

Most Albertians are like Texans of 30 years ago, if you´re too stupid to walk and chew gum at the same time, too bad!!!

My guess is Cruz will have to renounce his Canadian citizenship before becoming a candidate for president. Dual just won´t fly with most American voters. That said, I will vote for him if he is the nominee. I like everything he stands for and he´s one of the few in Congress with backbone!

Now was that so hard? Why did it take Obama 3 years and constant vilification of his opponents to release something he is required to do for verification of his eligibility? Once again, it just proves Obama thinks he´s above the law, and that the rules don´t apply to him.

The Alabama Supreme Ct. just recently received and recorded a 57 page affidavit providing info that the current WH occupant produced and provided for viewing a fraudulent BC. One of the experts verifying and saying it was a computer generated fraudulent document is an ´expert witness´ used by the law office of the Oval Office squatter.

The sixty four million dollar question is - Is he a Natural Born Citizen of the United States? The SCOTUS will never take this up. If they do it will be crystal clear in short order that we are suffering under an illegal, illegitimate regime for the last five and a half years.

#9 is correct about Cruz´s mother´s name. Every other article I can find lists her maiden name as Darragh but on the b.c. it´s Wilson. Too much explaining means unsuitable candidate. This seems to be a theme with recent elections - McCain born elsewhere, Romney born here but his dad born in Mexico, now Cruz and, of course, 0bama born and raised who knows where.

Isn´t there an American born in America with two parents born in America who can run against the communists?

Duel-nationality is very common today. Almost all of today´s immigrants to the USA who become naturalized US citizens are duel-nationals, as they can legally retain their home country citizenship when they are given naturalized US citizenship. Many countries give their citizenship to people born in the USA to one or both of their native born citizens who is living in the USA.

If the liberal Democrat amnesty is passed, in a decade or so, there very easily could be 20 million or more Mexicans most living in the US Southwest, who could retain their Mexican citizenship while becoming naturalized US citizens that would give them US voting rights. Such an occurrence would constitute one massive Mexican voting bloc that would have the great potential to decide which US political party wins future US national elections. If they could do that, they would also have the potential to decide much of future US domestic and foreign policy. You have to remember when immigrants retain their foreign citizenship they also retain their foreign allegiances, a lot of which are contrary to both US national and security interests.

With such a huge number of Mexicans voting in US elections and since just about every Mexican hates the borderline between Mexico and the USA, it is easy to see that in a decade or so that it may be politically impossible for the USA to continue to construct or maintain any sort of effective borderline.

Every article and biography about Cruz says his mother is Eleanor Darragh and
she´s of Irish and Italian descent.
Eleanor Elizabeth Wilson sounds neither Irish or Italian.

I thought it had always been said by lucianne posters that to be a NBC one had to be BORN in the US regardless of parents citizenship? That was always the argument that Obama wasn´t a NBC if born in Kenya. Now that is not true? Since when has Canada been able to say who is eligible to run for US President?

Citizenship 098

Naturalized - Citizen that legally becomes a US Citizen.

Native Born - Born here. The citizenship of the parents don´t matter. Also "Anchor Babies".

Natural Born - A child born to TWO US Citizen at the time of birth. US Supreme Court 1875 Minor Case.

So, what was the Citizenship of Ted Cruz´s Dad when he was born? That is the real question!!!

Good idea, #3. I suspect there are a lot of Albertans who might support this idea. That´s probably the most conservative province in Canada. Actually, maybe they wouldn´t want to join the union after all, at least while Obama is president.

So what is it with the Wilson/Darragh business, then? Was she married briefly to someone named Wilson, and the hospital mistakenly listed that as her maiden name? Every other biographical source I´ve seen for Cruz gives his mother´s birth name as Eleanor Darragh. Okay, cue the Twilight Zone theme music.

He already is a natural born citizen. The idea that there is some difference between "natural born" "Native born" and "Citizen from Birth" is an internet fantasy that has no basis in current US Law.

Among actual, working, lawyers this entire discussion is a colossal joke, as are the people who get worked up about it.

No, 24, he is a citizen but not eligible. This was explained by a post on this site quite some time ago by an American woman who gave birth in another country and was told when she registered at the consulate that her child would be an American citizen but not eligible to run for President.

#26 - Are these the same lawyers that have multiple interpretations of the word ´is´? Just because one went to law school doesn´t mean that one is expert in the law. Exhibit 1 - Hillary Clinton. Exhibit 2 - Barack ´Barry the Fraud´ Obama. Exhibit 3 - Michelle Robinson ´The Beard´ Obama.

I personally find that the Constitution is easily understood by literate 14 year olds, as it was intended. It´s lawyers that have written massively complex laws and Constitutional interpretations that have mucked up the works.

#21:

“Natural Born - A child born to TWO US Citizen at the time of birth. US Supreme Court 1875 Minor Case. “

The ruling in the Minor case declared that a person born in the US of parents who were both US citizen was definitely a Natural Born Citizen but it also explicitly stated that it was not that court´s purpose to provide a definitive definition of NBC and that some other court or congress would have to provide that definition.

Included in the majority opinion:

´The constitution "does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens."´

Also:

"(I)t 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."

As previously posted:

There are two types of citizens, Natural, at time of birth, and Naturalized, anytime after birth.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem.

President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
