“Why did Obama employ Robert Bauer of Perkins Coie, to request an advisory opinion on FEC matching funds that he was not eligible for?”…Citizen Wells

“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense,  to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells

“Moore said he’s seen no convincing evidence that Obama is a “natural born citizen” and a lot of evidence that suggests he is not.”…Judge Roy Moore interview by WND

From CNN March 23, 2015.

“Ted Cruz announces 2016 presidential bid”

“Ted Cruz is first out the gate.

The first-term senator from Texas announced early Monday he is running for president.

Cruz announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination in a 30-second video message in a tweet shortly after midnight Monday. Later in the day, he will appear at Virginia’s Liberty University, the largest Christian university in the world, where he will make his in-person declaration.

“I’m running for President and I hope to earn your support!” Cruz said in his tweet.

Cruz, 44, will be the first candidate to formally throw his hat in the ring for what’s expected to be a crowded GOP primary, with more than a dozen high-profile Republicans expressing serious interest in a White House run.”

“A constant and vocal critic of the Obama administration, he’s perhaps best known for his stalwart fight against Obamacare in 2013, which led to a tense standoff between Democrats and Republicans and ultimately resulted in a 17-day government shutdown. The showdown was punctuated by Cruz’s 21-hour speech on the Senate floor.”

Senate Resolution 511

April 30, 2008

“Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.”

From Citizen Wells January 27, 2015.

To be president of the US one must be a natural born citizen, not just a citizen and not a naturalized citizen.

Is Ted Cruz a natural born citizen?

Based on my understanding the answer is no.

Ted Cruz was born in Canada and had only one US citizen parent.

Is Ted Cruz a patriot?

I believe so.

For the good of the country I am requesting that Ted Cruz, at the earliest possible moment, request an advisory opinion from the FEC about his eligibility for Federal Matching funds and therefore the presidency.

The FEC will be compelled to provide an advisory opinion about whether or not he is a natural born citizen.

This will be important for two reasons.

Ted Cruz needs to know early if his efforts are worthwhile and not counterproductive.

We need a ruling on this. Every government entity that should provide guidance on the definition of natural born citizen has passed the buck, including the US Supreme Court. The courts and congress have shirked their constitutional duty.

There are 2 important instances of an advisory opinion from the FEC on matching funds.

1. Attorney Robert Bauer of Perkins Coie on behalf of Barack Obama in 2007.

From Citizen Wells January 23, 2012.



Obama, attorneys and Democrats control FEC

The devil himself could not have come up with a more devious plan.

Robert Bauer, of Perkins Coie, on February 1, 2007 requested an advisory opinion to keep Obama’s option for matching funds open. Bauer knew full well that Obama, not being a natural born citizen, was not eligible for matching funds. The FEC advisory opinion from March 1, 2007 responded in the affirmative.Ellen L. Weintraub, former staff member at Perkins Coie, was a Democrat appointee of the FEC at that time. She remained well beyond her scheduled tenure with the help of Barack Obama.

Advisory Opinion Request: General Election Public Funding

From Obama attorney Robert Bauer to FEC

“This request for an Advisory Opinion is filed on behalf of Senator Barack Obama and the committee, the Obama Exploratory Committee, that he established to fund his exploration of a Presidential candidacy. The question on which he seeks the Commission’s guidance is whether, if Senator Obama becomes a candidate, he may provisionally raise funds for the general election but retain the option, upon nomination, of returning these contributions and accepting the public funds for which he would be eligible as the Democratic Party’s nominee.”

“cc: Chairman Robert Lenhard
Vice Chair David Mason
Commissioner Michael Toner
Commissioner Hans von Spakovsky
Commissioner Steven Walther
Commissioner Ellen Weintraub

Note, in the above advisory opinion request, Robert Bauer was a Perkins Coie attorney and Ellen Weintraub was a former Perkins Coie staff member.
March 1, 2007

FEC advisory opinion

From Robert D. Lenhard to Robert Bauer

“The Commission concludes that Senator Obama may solicit and receive private contributions for the 2008 presidential general election without losing his
eligibility to receive public funding if he receives his party’s nomination for President, if he (1) deposits and maintains all private contributions
designated for the general election in a separate account, (2) refrains from using these contributions for any purpose, and (3) refunds the private
contributions in full if he ultimately decides to receive public funds.””

June 19, 2008.

“Obama to Break Promise, Opt Out of Public Financing for General Election”

“In a web video to supporters — “the people who built this movement from the bottom up” — Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, announced this morning that he will not enter into the public financing system, despite a previous pledge to do so.”

“In November 2007, Obama answered “Yes” to Common Cause when asked “If you are nominated for President in 2008 and your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system?”
Obama wrote:

“In February 2007, I proposed a novel way to preserve the strength of the public financing system in the 2008 election. My plan requires both major party
candidates to agree on a fundraising truce, return excess money from donors, and stay within the public financing system for the general election.”


2. Abdul Hassan, a naturalized citizen, requested an advisory opinion in 2012.

From Citizen Wells March 11, 2013.

“From the FEC March 11, 2013.


WASHINGTON – The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today issued its Per Curiam Order inHassan v. FEC (Case 1:11-cv-02189-EGS). The text of the Order may be found here: (http://www.fec.gov/law/litigation/hassan_ac_order2.pdf).


From Citizen Wells October 1, 2012.

“From the FEC October 1, 2012.


WASHINGTON – The United States District Court for the District of Columbia on Friday issued its Memorandum Opinion and Order in Hassan v. FEC (Case 1:11-cv-02189-EGS). The text of the Memorandum Opinion may be found here (http://www.fec.gov/law/litigation/hassan_dc_memo_opinion.pdf) and the text of the Order may be found here (http://www.fec.gov/law/litigation/hassan_dc_order2.pdf).

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that administers and enforces federal campaign finance laws. The FEC has jurisdiction over the financing of campaigns for the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, the Presidency and the Vice Presidency. Established in 1975, the FEC is composed of six Commissioners who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.


“Hassan’s challenge to the Fund Act rests on his contention
that the natural born citizen requirement has been implicitly
repealed by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. The Court need
not repeat the thorough and persuasive opinions issued by its
colleagues in at least five other jurisdictions, all of whom
determined that the natural born citizen requirement has not
been implicitly repealed by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.”

“Moreover, the Supreme Court has consistently held that the distinction between natural born citizens and naturalized citizens in the context of
Presidential eligibility remains valid.”

“Because the natural born citizen requirement has not been explicitly or implicitly repealed, Hassan’s challenge to that provision, and the Fund Act’s incorporation thereof, must fail.””


This is important.

I urge you to contact Ted Cruz with this important information.

    Truths, half truths and lies.

    I will make this simple because it is.

    Although our laws were derived from British laws and in fact some common laws are in force today, we have heavily modified them beginning with pre revolution colonial laws and the US Constitution.

    The article above conveniently, selectively quotes the US Constitution which states:

    “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 . . . .”

    Ted Cruz is a citizen, but since he was not alive at the adoption of the Constitution, he is not by default a natural born citizen.

    The Constitution was crafted by individuals with an excellent understanding of the law and a concern for foreign influences.

    They made a clear distinction between citizen and natural born citizen.

    Grassroots conservatives across Texas are cheering the news that Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will announce that he is running for President in 2016 on Monday. The news was especially welcomed by many activists who have supported Cruz for years, long before he became a household…”


  3. citizenwells

    How American is Cruz?
    Will he do his patriotic duty and get a decision on his eligibility asap for the good of all?

  4. citizenwells

    In contrast to the unamerican Obama.

  5. Citizen wells, couldn’t agree more. Cruz should get an opinion from the FEC immediately, and appeal to SCOTUS if unfavorable. Let’s not support the same broken process again.

  6. citizenwells

    “California Gov. Jerry Brown believes Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz is “absolutely unfit” to run for office because of the Texas senator’s views on climate change.”


    Well, that’s an endorsement.
    Anything that Brown is against must be ok.

    Beck is quoting Harvard Law Review & Cruz being eligible.

    It’s the Constitution stupid, not your opinions!

  10. citizenwells


  11. Beck has fallen into the same trap, in an ideological trap, of wanting something so much that you forget the bigger picture. Cruz needs to get FEC review.

  12. CW……
    …….it appears that Beck is NOT ONLY A COWARD,he is also an IDIOT. I agree 100%. Obviously the people at Harvard are also IDIOTS,but THINK that they KNOW IT ALL. I hasten to add to that by saying “IT IS WHAT YOU LEARN AFTER YOU ALREADY KNOW IT ALL…..WHICH COUNTS”

  13. ……dig up Cruz’s documents…….some were posted last year when the question first came public. As I remember there was substantial conflict in the various dates. Make everything as public as it can be made. The FEC will be forced to tell the truth. Since Cruz is a Republican it is my feeling that the FEC will be all over this anyway sort of like STINK ON MANURE.

  14. ………I might be wrong but I think that there is some Cruz family history to be found in Canada.

  15. Pete……
    …….since the FEC is dominated by liberals it is quite probable that for ONCE they will tell it like they find it. It will be to their advantage,then they will say ….”see we ARE bi partisan.”

  16. AND NOW…….
    ………….267 members of Congress, both Republican AND liberal alike have WARNED SOETORO about the nuclear talks…….Congress MUST BE INCLUDED…….OR ELSE!

  17. ……….Arizona Senator tells Soetoro “GET OVER IT” ,and refers to Soetoro’s “TEMPER TANTRUM” har har…….that is putting it MILDLY…..It is more like a RAVING LUNATIC.

  18. bye bye………..Have a great day all……Godbless!
