Ted Cruz’s eligibility: A civics lesson for the uninformed

Rarely do I find and share an article in my blog. I found this gem while researching Ted Cruz’s eligibility and his status as a Natural Born Citizen. 

I was going to write another article based on my collective research data but declared that this article was so well written and so easy to understand that I would not improve upon the content and I would be remiss to not share it with my readers in it’s entirety. 

I hope you will support the website below and visit their site often as it has many other fantastic blog entries.

Enjoy as I did.

Laws, Codes and Eligibility – A Civics Lesson

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on cprworldwidemedia.net

Ted Cruz, as a matter of LAW and U.S. Codes…IS indeed qualified AND eligible to run for the office of president.

The Constitution, clearly states that to serve as president, one must be 35 years of age, one must have resided in the United States for at least 14 years and that one must be a Natural Born Citizen. Just as clearly, the Constitution never defines Natural Born Citizen nor do any of our founding documents but…later laws and codes DO.

The Supreme Court, which has NEVER entertained a case based on NBC and therefore, never issued any DECISION regarding NBC has, for a very long time, held that a Natural Born Citizen or…NBC…is one who is a Citizen at Birth or…CaB.

Further…the SCOTUS has long held that NBC includes those born in the United States or abroad to parents of a U.S. citizen.

Now don’t go all plural on me here as I will explain this.

British Common Law held that children, whether born on British soil or abroad were subjects of the crown if their parents were subjects of the crown and our founders and framers certainly recognized this.

The First Congress stated as a matter of law via The Naturalization Act of 1790 “the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States.”

Yes…I know that Ted Cruz’s father was not a U.S. citizen but…this is not the end of the line in our civics lesson. Far from it in fact. The Naturalization Act of 1790 also included children whose MOTHERS were U.S. citizens so long as the FATHER had, at least, been a RESIDENT of the United States…so as not to follow British patriarchy standards used for the purpose of the monarchy.

Later, congress would strike the differentiation so that any child, born in the U.S. or abroad, with the residency requirement intact and A parent being a U.S. citizen would be legally…a Natural Born Citizen.

This is backed up by the Nationality Act of 1940 which clearly states: “In the absence of such legitimation or adjudication , the child, whether born before or after the effective date of this Act, if the mother had the nationality of the United States at the time of the child’s birth , and had previously resided in the United States or one of its outlying possessions, shall be held to have acquired at birth her nationality status.”

The Nationality Act of 1940 also shows that those born either within the United States or outside the United States (the latter being of note to Ted Cruz) to at least one parent (at least ONE parent) who was a United States citizen at the time of that child’s birth allows the conveying of that citizen parent’s United States citizenship to the child.

And as I stated yesterday…”While the Act of 1940 has been amended several times…the particular law in effect between 1952 and 1986 which covers Ted Cruz’s birth in 1970 shows that a child born either inside or outside the United States must have a (that would be “A” and not two) citizen parent who resided in the United States for at least 10 years, including five after the age of 14, in order to be considered a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.”

Congratulations Mrs. Cruz…you are the proud mother of a U.S. Natural Born Citizen baby boy.

But wait…there’s more…

I refer you to §1401. Nationals and citizens of United States at birth

You can read it here in the link provided.
https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1401

So…congress, backed by long-standing recognition of the United States Supreme Court has held that being a Citizen at Birth is one and the same as being a Natural Born Citizen and since that recognition has also been held by the Harvard Law Review as well as Constitutional scholars and numerous law professors as well as valid U.S. laws and Codes…

Ted Cruz, because his mother, meeting every requirement, conveyed HER citizenship on her son Ted…at birth…and every law on the books both then and today along with existing U.S. code IS…INDEED…ELIGIBLE to run for and hold the office of President of the United States of America.

The fact that Ted Cruz was born in Canada has absolutely NO legal bearing on this whatsoever. None. Zilch. ZERO. His birth certificate is a legal document showing the time and location of his birth but does NOTHING to establish his citizenship in any way.

U.S. laws and U.S. code…some of it going all the way back to the founders and framers who served in the First Congress of the United States makes this VERY clear. And for those who continue to scream “CONSTITUTION…THE CONSTITUTION CLEARLY SAYS”…please remember THIS part of it…“This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land…”

It may not be what some folks want to hear…it may not be what they want to know or admit but…while you may not LIKE the laws…you must ABIDE by the laws. Support whoyou like but…Ted Cruz’s eligibility is a matter of U.S. LAW and U.S. CODES…not the stuff of false libertarian or liberal talking points.

During yesterday’s little nonsense firestorm, I implored those citing the “CRUZ AIN’T ELIGIBLE” nonsense to provide links to ANY U.S. laws or codes that would back them up.

None could…simply because no such laws or codes exist. All they did was repeat the same false narrative over and over again and, they continued to cite SCOTUS cases that had not one single thing to do with NBC at all…again…because no such case has ever been heard by the Supreme Court.

Here’s just one more little but important tidbit…

Since Cruz’s father had been a resident of the United States…Ted would have, by the Naturalization Act of 1790…been considered a Natural Born Citizen in accordance to the words of the Constitution and thus eligible to run for and hold the office he currently seeks. And by the way… One last thing in answer to all those who desperately and falsely try to compare Cruz to Obama…because they consider Cruz a threat to their one and only candidate of choice…the exact same laws and codes that make Cruz eligible…make Obama INELIGIBLE because Obama’s mother did NOT meet the requirements outlined here.

Thus ends our civics lesson.

BCN Note:

Although I feel it will be a longshot for Cruz to win the nomination mostly because many within his own party will do everything within their power to make sure he is never President of the US. He does not tow the typical moderate line and will not be a puppet for the puppet masters to manipulate. 

With that said, I do feel it is our duty to allow the Republic of the USA to render any subjects that qualify to run for President to participate.

To negate a Natural Born Citizen from running for President would be totally against the intent of our forefathers and would minimize their protective measures taken many years ago to give any natural born citizen the right to be President of the greatest country on Earth.

Sooooo… Run Cruz, run reader, run NBC it’s your right, it’s your duty.

Now, move ahead with the knowledge to inform others and pass this article to a friend.

Van Irion: Judge wants definition of “Natural born citizen”

In Government on April 26, 2012 at 11:30 PM

Van continues his fight! Obama is not a natural born citizen, he is also a fraud and is a “fake president” with no constitutional right to be in the office today! Continue to pray for my dear friend as he continues this most influential battle! I believe our future and our freedom depends upon it!

WND EXCLUSIVE
JUDGE WANTS DEFINITION OF ‘NATURAL BORN CITIZEN’

‘Resolution of this federal issue will resolve the case’

by BOB UNRUHE

A federal judge has determined in a case challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility for a state ballot that the meaning of the constitutional phrase “natural born citizen” is “important and not trivial.”

U.S. District Judge S. Thomas Anderson of Tennessee said the courts ultimately must define “natural born citizen,” affirming that the “issue of whether President Obama is constitutionally qualified to run for the presidency is certainly substantial.”

“This specific question has been raised in numerous lawsuits filed since President Obama took office,” Anderson wrote in his opinion. “The outcome of the federal question in this case will certainly have an effect on other cases presenting the same issue about whether President Obama meets the constitutional qualifications for the presidency.”

Van Irion, whose Liberty Legal Foundation brought the case, alleges the plan by Tennessee Democrats to register Obama as their nominee for president opens a case, under state law, of negligent misrepresentation and fraud or intentional misrepresentation because of doubts about Obama’s eligibility.

Irion was pleased the court recognized the significance of the claims.

“The court made several very positive statements about our case,” he noted.

He cited Anderson’s statement that the court “finds that the federal question presented, the meaning of the phrase ‘natural born citizen’ as a qualification for the presidency set out in Article II of the Constitution, is important and not trivial.”

“It is clear that the stated federal issue of President Obama’s qualifications for the office are ‘actually disputed and substantial,” the judge said.

Anderson said it also is “clear that there will be a legal dispute over the Constitution’s definition of ‘natural born citizen’ and the Supreme Court’s decision in Minor.”

Irion told supporters, “While it is certainly dangerous to read too much into such an opinion, the statements from this federal court are encouraging. The court appears to understand the most critical issues presented by our complaint.”

He told WND that the issue identified by Anderson is what virtually all of the dozens of cases challenging Obama’s eligibility have been seeking: a ruling on accusations that Obama is unqualified.

Previously, cases have been dismissed based on standing or other technicalities, not on the merits.

The decision from Anderson came in a case brought by Irion on behalf of voters and political candidates in Tennessee. The plaintiffs argue Obama’s name cannot be submitted because he is ineligible.

The defendants had moved the case from state court, where Irion wanted to argue the state issues, to federal court, where Obama virtually has batted a thousand in preventing cases from reaching the point at which the merits are assessed.

Irion had submitted a motion to have the case returned to the state courts, a request Anderson denied.

But Irion was heartened by the comments from the judge, who said that without a determination on the questions facing the court, there easily could be differing results in court jurisdictions around the nation.

“There is a risk of inconsistent adjudications on the federal issue presented,” the judge said.

Irion also had raised questions about “Obama’s dual citizenship” and allegations that his Social Security number is fraudulent.

“The court construes these allegations about President Obama … as corroboration of plaintiffs’ main allegation that President Obama is not a natural born citizen or otherwise qualified to be president,” the judge wrote.

Anderson’s opinion included a notation that the U.S. Supreme Court in Minor v. Happersett defined “natural born citizen” as “all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens.”

“It is undisputed that the material fact at issue in this case is whether under the circumstances of president Obama’s birth, the president is a ‘natural born citizen,’ a term set out in the United States Constitution and construed under federal law,” he wrote.

The case is developing just as a new petition urges members of Congress to take the issue seriously by investigating it. The number of names on the document has surged past 40,000 and soon will be approaching 50,000.

WND reported just a day ago that members of Congress, regarding Obama’s eligibility, still are relying on statements from Hawaii officials, “vetting” by voters and his own word.

Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio., for example has said. “I will continue to take the president at his word that he is a natural born citizen of the United States.”

Obama released an image of a Hawaiian long-form birth certificate on April 27, 2011, after years of stating that the document was not available. But at that time, the Hawaii Department of Health and governor’s office refused to confirm for WND that the image released was an accurate representation of the state’s records.

However, Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s law enforcement investigators have found probable cause that the document is a forgery. Others, meanwhile, argue that the document affirms Obama is not eligible, because it lists his father as a foreigner. The Founders, they argue, understood “natural born citizen” to be the offspring of two American citizens.

Please allow me to be in the presence of this ABC reporter who is so inconvenienced to tell this story! Good day!

Ga. Judge Orders President to Appear at Hearing
January 20, 2012

A judge has ordered President Barack Obama to appear in court in Atlanta for a hearing on a complaint that says Obama isn’t a natural-born citizen and can’t be president.

It’s one of many such lawsuits that have been filed across the country, so far without success. A Georgia resident made the complaint, which is intended to keep Obama’s name off the state’s ballot in the March presidential primary.

An Obama campaign aide says any attempt to involve the president personally will fail and such complaints around the country have no merit.

The hearing is set for Thursday before an administrative judge. Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi on Friday denied a motion by the president’s lawyer to quash a subpoena that requires Obama to show up.
