TheBlaze Ted Cruz not eligible, Glenn Beck insists Cruz is eligble for POTUS, Must be born in US to be president, Citizen not equivalent to natural born citizen

“In his 1789 article, Ramsay first explained who the “original citizens” were and then defined the “natural born citizens” as the children born in the country to citizen parents.”…Attorney Mario Apuzzo

“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 . . . .”…US Constitution

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”…Abraham Lincoln

 

 

The Blaze on April 24, 2015 covered a story about Arnold Schwarzenegger who was not born in the US.

“Legendary action movie star and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger may have been born in Austria — but make no mistake, he’s 100 percent American.

Appearing on SiriusXM’s “Opie With Jim Norton” radio show on Wednesday, Schwarzenegger proclaimed that he owes his entire career to the United States of America. The actor expressed his deep love for America after comedian Jim Norton asked if he had a desire to run for president, something he’s unable to do because he wasn’t born in the country.”

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/04/24/arnold-schwarzeneggers-epic-response-when-hes-asked-if-constitution-should-be-amended-so-he-can-run-for-president/

“something he’s unable to do because he wasn’t born in the country.”

This is in direct contradiction to Glenn Beck who believes that Ted Cruz is eligible.

From Citizen Wells March 25, 2015.

“At the time the US Constitution was drafted and ratified there were 2 classifications of citizens, natural born citizens and everyone else.

That is why non natural born citizens, just citizens, had to be grandfathered in to run for president.

The US Constitution 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 . . . .”

There was no naturalization law and no naturalized citizens by law.

Natural born citizen was understood at the time and needed no further explanation.

However, a prominent historian and founding father, David Ramsay did, in the same year the Constitution was ratified, 1789, define natural born citizen.

From Citizen News March 25, 2015.

“Yes, the Glenn Beck Radio Show is mostly comedy. Occasionally they inject facts and outrage.
Glenn Beck once again insulted legal scholars and concerned Americans with his entertainment culture low information media use of “citizen” interchangeably with “natural born citizen.”
 “One of his parents is American. That’s all it takes. For the love of heaven, if illegal aliens can come to the America and give birth, and that birth child is a citizen, then so is Ted Cruz, for the love of heaven. Stop it!” Pat said. The Immigration and Nationality Act states that a person is a citizen by birth if they are born to a parent with U.S. citizenship, ”
Perhaps the explanation for Beck and his lackeys doing so comes from commenter JayJay.

““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 . . . .”
Sadly, Americans are so lacking in grammar, they don’t get the significance of the comma after ‘states’.”

    “Why are some people claiming Ted Cruz isn’t a citizen? Well, that certainly didn’t take long. Before Ted Cruz even announced his candidacy for President, people were already planning to derail his campaign with baseless distractions. Cruz’s critics are claiming that he’s ineligible to run because he’s not a natural born citizen. Yes, the birthers are back. Well, it didn’t work for Barack Obama and it certainly won’t work for Ted Cruz. Glenn laid out why the new birthers are wrong HERE.”

    THE EARTH IS MAD…AND RIGHTFULLY SO…

    It began with a 6.3 in New Zealand:

    “A strong magnitude 6.3 earthquake has hit 40 kilometers off the New Zealand town of Kaikoura, GeoNet reports. Witnesses reported feeling tremors as far as Auckland. The earthquake was clearly felt in the cities of Wellington and Christchurch. The quake centered in Nelson region at the depth of 80 kilometers, according to GeoNet.”

    Then a 5.5 hit off the coast of Northern California:

    “A magnitude 5.5 earthquake was reported Thursday evening 140 miles west of Eureka, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred at 6:34 p.m. Pacific time at a depth of 6 miles. According to the USGS, the epicenter was 295 miles northwest of San Francisco.”

    Then a catastrophic 7.9 hits Nepal. At least hundreds are dead…

    “A powerful earthquake struck Nepal Saturday, leaving at least 688 people dead, as the violently shaking earth collapsed houses, leveled centuries-old temples and triggered avalanches in the Himalayas. It is the worst temblor to hit the nation in more than 80 years.”

    And they just keep coming, there is a swarm in Idaho at this very moment:

    “The Inland Northwest was rocked by two earthquakes on Thursday night, both which had epicenters in North Idaho.”

    So something is afoot! Maybe it ends with Nepal’s tragic quake, maybe it wont. Volcano’s too are going nuts. The Earth is mad and rightfully so…

    HOOKERS for HILLARY….
    These girls wish to individually screw every American they can.

    Hillary, on the other hand, wishes to collectively screw every American she can in 2016, as though she hasn’t been doing that for over 30 years already !!!

    So that makes Hillary the QUEEN of HOOKERS

  5. CW……..
    Yes we have some NEW BIRTHERS, and yes they too will soon feel the frustration generated by those among us who have lost their minds. Until Americans RE DISCOVER the Constitution and read it thoroughly it is likely that nothing will change. I have stopped dwelling upon it because it causes me a great deal of discomfort. All I can hope for is that someday Americans will awaken from their sleep and will be shocked into a state of reality……..but sadly it will by then be FAR TOO LATE.

  6. My heart goes out to the people of Nepal. Most Nepalese have very little and now they have even less. I pray to God and ask for his intervention for those people.

    Hi JayJay, I have it; please ask CW for my e-mail and I’ll send it along with phone number.

  18. Thanks. I’d like SueK’s email. I had it years ago, but deleted all emails for simplicity.

  19. OOps, I don’t use my real email online. I got hacked and don’t need that again.

    I was just sending a card.
    If she reads here, she’ll know I was thinking of her and she is in my prayers for speedy recovery.
