The Common Sense of Ted Cruz’s Eligibility
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “If we read from the records of the Federal Convention – the question on Senator Cruz’s eligibility is: Did the men that drafted the Constitution, did they have a copy of Emmerich de Vattel’s Law of Nations? If they did, then we know what the definition of natural-born citizen is. Cruz ain’t it. He’s not qualified.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest….

Ben Carson: This kind of thing, it’s just a fly in the ointment. It doesn’t need to be paid any attention to in my opinion.

Mike: That’s Ben Carson, another one of the alleged conservatives out there running for the presidency saying that we don’t need to pay any attention to whether or not Senator Cruz is an actual citizen. Have you ever heard of anything more ridiculous? You can scratch him off the “conservative” list. That’s going to upset some of you, but come on, you don’t care about the citizenship. You cared about the citizenship of Obama. Some people still care about the citizenship of Obama. Why don’t you care about Cruz’s citizenship, Constitution or not Constitution? Pretty simple stuff here. Back to the debate over the Naturalization Act of 1790. It will jump off the pages to you when I compile these things together. Hang on, one more clip:

Ted Cruz: . . . straightforward as a legal matter. The Constitution and federal law are clear that the child of a US citizen born abroad is a natural-born citizen. The dynamic that’s happening is interesting. Three weeks ago, almost every Republican candidate was attacking Donald Trump. Today, almost every Republican candidate is attacking me.

Mike: So if you’re citing the Constitution, which I thought all conservatives were supposed to cite, if you’re citing the Constitution and you’re trying to divine whether or not one candidate is in compliance with it, and his coterie of followers, his legion of biped zombies is in compliance with it, that’s an attack? Why is it an attack? Aren’t you just pointing out the obvious? Now, folks, using this – if you’d like to watch the show on YouTube, you can. Just find The Official Mike Church Channel.
Let’s show the YouTube audience, you see how worn out that document is, my pocket Constitution? It’s because I refer to it all the time. I could go in the back room and get a new one. We’ve got a couple thousand of them back there. We send one out with almost every order in the Founders Tradin’ Post. I like my old copy. It shows – I’ve got notes in it. I’ve got little bookmarks in it. There are things that are highlighted. When I go looking for something, I’ll say: Yeah, I remember why I highlighted that. Let me see if I understand this. Now if you are toting one of these things around and you’re reading Article II of this Constitution, and then you’re reading the natural-born citizen clause, that’s an attack now? That’s an attack? Wow. The debate on Thursday night is going to be fun, by the by.

The statues governing this naturalization process state:
“A child born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth if certain statutory requirements are met. The child’s parents should contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America (CRBA) to document that the child is a U.S. citizen. If the U.S. embassy or consulate determines that the child acquired U.S. citizenship at birth, a consular officer will approve the CRBA application and the Department of State will issue a CRBA, also called a Form FS-240, in the child’s name.”
According to related U.S. laws governing “Citizenship at Birth for Children Born Outside the U.S. and its Territories,” the following conditions had to be met in order for Ted Cruz to legally claim U.S. citizenship at birth via these naturalization statutes, through his mother.
The U.S. citizen parent had been physically present in the U.S. or its territories for a period of at least five years at some time in his or her life prior to the birth, of which at least two years were after his or her 14th birthday.
If the U.S. citizen parent spent time abroad in any of the following three capacities, this can also be counted towards the physical presence requirement:
Serving honorably in the U.S. armed forces;
Employed with the U.S. government; or
Employed with certain international organizations.
Additionally, time spent abroad by the U.S. citizen parent while the U.S. citizen parent was the unmarried son or daughter and a member of the household of a person who meets any of the three conditions listed above can also be counted. [Mike: Using those three requirements, does Dudley Cruzright, former Canadian citizen, meet any of those requirements? Did his mother attempt to get him a CRBA? Answer: No.]

Ted’s parents were at no time serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, employed by the U.S. Government or by any of the certain international organizations, during their eight years in Canada, between 1966 and 1974. Further, Ted’s father Rafael, was at no time a legal citizen of the United States prior to naturalizing in 2005, from Canada. Rafael’s known legal citizenship status as of 1970 was Cuban, not American.
Unfortunately, there is no evidence to suggest that the parent or parents of Ted Cruz ever filed a CRBA form with the U.S. Government in or around 1970, which is why Ted Cruz released a copy of his Canadian citizenship records and not any U.S. citizenship records . . .
. . . Without any form of U.S. Citizenship documentation, and proof of Canadian citizenship at birth in 1970 and holding that legal status until May 2014 when he renounced his birth citizenship to Canada, there is no way for Ted Cruz to prove that he is either “natural born” and eligible for the Oval Office, or “naturalized” prior to 2012, when he sought and accepted a seat in the U.S. Senate as a legal citizen of Canada.
Mike: This is damning stuff here.
