Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) Releases Birth Certificate … Born in Canada to an American Mother


As reported at the Dallas News,  Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) released his birth certificate this weekend. Hmm, it took Barack Obama how long to do the same?

From the TPM, Ted Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born. The popular Conservative Republican is most likely paving the way for a 2016 run for President. This is going to open up an interesting debate. Those that went out of their way to back Barack Obama in his birth certificate fight will now oppose Ted Cruz. And those who went against Obama will now defend Cruz. It would appear that if it was good for Obama, it is also good for Cruz.

Ted Cruz BC

In an effort to repudiate suggestions that he is ineligible to be president of the United States, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) released his birth certificate Sunday to The Dallas Morning News.

The birth certificate confirmed that the Texas Republican was born Dec. 22, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta. Because he was born to an American mother, Cruz instantly became an American citizen. But he also immediately became a Canadian citizen under the country’s law. Given his dual citizenship, Cruz could not only launch a White House bid, but he could also run for Canadian Parliament. According to legal experts, he’ll remain a citizen of both countries unless he renounces his citizenship.

      According to Sheriff Joe, the Obama BC presented wasn’t the real deal.

      As far as I’m concerned, it isn’t.

      If Mr. President is who he says he is, WHY is he hiding all his personal records. Why are his college records sealed?

      Whatever he is hiding, there is a reason he doesn’t want us to know.

      Considering America has Allen West as a Conservative option for President … it makes sense that Canada should have Ted Cruz as a Conservative option for Prime Minister. It would be akin to putting real meaning to the 90 year tradition of “Hands Across the Border” celebrations at the Peace Arch Crossing.

      Case Closed!!


      Bigger show of ‘hands’ at the border
      June 11

      An estimated 10,000 Girl Guides, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and Campfire Girls from the U.S. and Canada packed Peace Arch International Park Sunday afternoon for the 90th Hands Across the Border parade.

      The United States Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787. Per Article 2, Section 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.

      The term natural-born citizen is not well understood today but was commonly understood in the 18th and 19th centuries. The term was first used in the legal treaties, “the Law of Nations”, by Swiss writer Emerich de Vattel in 1758. In chapter 19, Section 212, Vattel stated: “natural-born citizens are those born in the country, of parents (plural) who are citizens.” It was not defined in the Constitution nor in later statutes, because the meaning was self evident to everyone when it was written.

      Vattel’s book was well known to the founding fathers and they relied on it often.

      In 1775, Benjamin Franklin noted the importance of the Law of Nations to the founders by ordering 3 of the latest editions. Franklin in a letter to Charles Dumas in December 1775 stated:

      “…the Law of Nations….has been continually in the hands of the members of our Congress, now sitting, who are much pleased with your notes and preface, and have entertained high and just esteem for their author?”

      Another indication the founders relied on Vattel is found in Article I, Section 8, which grants Congress the authority to “punish…offenses against the Law of Nations.”

      The term natural-born citizen applied only to the President. Members of the House, Senate and the Courts were required to be citizens, but not necessarily natural-born citizens.

      The clause was first introduced for constitutional consideration in a letter from John Jay to George Washington. The letter, dated July 25, 1787, stated the following:

      Permit me to hint whether it would not 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 Commander in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.

      I cannot comprehend why it is not a requirement by a candidate running for ANY office at ANY level of the United States government to provide the electorate with ALL documentation that substantiates his/her eligibility … that substantiates his/her claims.

      Cruz will renounce Canadian citizenship
      Published: August 19

      Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) announced Monday evening that he will renounce his Canadian citizenship, less than 24 hours after a newspaper pointed out that the Canadian-born senator likely maintains dual citizenship.

      “Now the Dallas Morning News says that I may technically have dual citizenship,” Cruz said in a statement. “Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator; I believe I should be only an American.”
