Fox News Republican presidential primary debate, Ted Cruz eligible for debate and presidency?, Must meet all US Constitutional requirements, Cruz born in Canada and not 2 US citizen parents, Why does Fox believe Cruz eligible?
“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
“According to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services Ted Cruz was not a US citizen at birth and consequently not a natural born citizen.”…Citizen Wells
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″
Ted Cruz had better get a ruling from the FEC and/or US Supreme Court asap!
He is scheduled to take part in the Fox News Channel (FNC) and Facebook first Republican presidential primary debate tonight, August 6, 2015.
However, the first entry guideline listed by Fox News’ Executive Vice President of News Editorial Michael Clemente is:
“Must meet all U.S. Constitutional requirements”
I have seen no ruling on Cruz’s eligibility.
