Trump Cruz should ask judge for a declaratory judgment, Rule if eligible to run for president as natural born citizen, John McCain Ted Cruz eligibility legitimate question, Cruz resembles Obama too much
“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
I have always liked Ted Cruz but that “warm fuzzy feeling” is quickly fading.
Cruz is increasingly reminding me of Barack Obama with their common Harvard Law Review, attorney arrogance disregard for the US Constitution.
Ted Cruz has stated that attorneys have looked into his eligibility as a natural born citizen and given him their blessing.
Well Mr. Cruz, how about the courts, the FEC and what about the American People?
From CNN January 6, 2016.
“In separate interviews with CNN, Trump and Cruz squared off over the businessman’s comments — reported Tuesday in The Washington Post — that the senator’s birth in Canada could pose a “big problem.” Trump told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that Cruz, whose mother was a U.S. citizen, should go to court and ask a judge to rule that he’s eligible to run for president.
“How do you run against the Democrat, whoever it may be, and you have this hanging over your head if they bring a lawsuit?” Trump said in an interview that aired on “The Situation Room.”
Trump said Cruz should to ask a judge for a “declaratory judgment” that Trump said would protect Cruz against any future questions about his eligibility that could come in a general election.
He also claimed that it was The Washington Post — not him — that raised the issue.”
McCain: Cruz’s presidential eligibility a ‘legitimate question’
“McCain says it’s “worth looking into” whether Ted Cruz is eligible to run for president, since the Texas senator was born in Canada.
In an interview on Phoenix CBS affiliate KFYI, McCain said the questions raised by Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump over Cruz’s eligibility are legitimate.
“I think there is a question. I’m not a constitutional scholar on that, but I think it’s worth looking into. I don’t think it’s illegitimate to look into it,” McCain said.”

“Ted Cruz should provide evidence of his Constitutional eligibility for the Presidency”
“Despite the misinformation being disseminated by our corrupt political-media establishment and the Saul Alinsky-like lobbing of the pejorative “birther” as a means to deflect or suppress discussion of the issue; there is, in my view, no ambiguity.
According to Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the Constitution, the narrative of the 14th Amendment, the Supreme Court case of Minor v. Happersett (1875), other legal opinions, precedence and historical background, Presidential eligibility requires that a candidate be born a US citizen of two US citizen parents at the time of birth.
If you are unwilling to accept the exhaustive legal documentation regarding the true meaning of “natural born” citizenship, you may try the common sense question:
Why has every President since Martin van Buren been a US citizen at birth of two citizen parents except Barack Obama and Chester A. Arthur, who lied about his personal history?
In order to understand the current political machinations surrounding the “natural born” Presidential eligibility debate, it is important to know that there have been numerous attempts both by Democrats and Republicans to amend the Article II “natural born citizen” clause, starting in 1975 when New York Democrat House Rep. Jonathon B. Bingham introduced House Joint Resolution 33, which clearly, even then, recognized the distinction between “citizen” and “natural born citizen:”
“Provides that a citizen of the United States otherwise eligible to hold the Office of President shall not be ineligible because such citizen is not a natural born citizen.”
It appears that our corrupt political-media establishment, having failed to change the Constitution by legal amendment, achieved it in 2008 through an electoral fait accompli, when Obama reached the Oval Office even though, by his own admission, he does not meet the two parent citizen standard.
A detailed account of how, in 2008, a Constitutional requirement was erased by political legerdemain is described here.
I like most of the policies espoused by Ted Cruz, but he does his candidacy and the nation no service by not addressing the eligibility question head-on.
You can be sure the Democrats will.”
