Donald Trump muses about Marco Rubio’s eligibility to run for president

by
February 22, 2016

Marco Rubio has joined Ted Cruz in Donald Trump’s crosshairs.

Fresh off his Saturday win in the South Carolina Republican primary, Trump said Sunday he didn’t know whether Rubio, a Florida senator who finished second, was eligible to run for president and that “the lawyers have to determine that.”

“I don’t know,” Trump told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.” “I really – I’ve never looked at it, George. I honestly have never looked at it. As somebody said, he’s not. And I retweeted it. I have 14 million people between Twitter and Facebook and Instagram and I retweet things, and we start dialogue and it’s very interesting.”

Rubio brushed aside Trump’s assertions later on “This Week.”

    In his twenties, Cruz( Father) moved to New Orleans. In 1969, at his new oil company job, he met his second wife, Eleanor Elizabeth Darragh Wilson, a computer programmer from Delaware. Cruz and Wilson lived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where their only child, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, was born While in Calgary, the couple owned a seismic-data processing firm for oil drillers.

    After Cruz( Father) graduated from the University of Texas in 1961, he was granted political asylum in the United States following the expiration of his student visa. He became a Canadian citizen during his residence in Canada, returning to the United States with his family in the mid-’70s. Eleanor and Rafael Cruz divorced in 1997. He renounced his Canadian citizenship and in 2005 became a naturalized U.S. citizen.

    Ted Cruz Cruz Born on December 22, 1970, in Calgary, Canada . In 2014, Cruz renounced his dual Canadian citizenship. This is the Catch : By renouncing his Dual Canadin Citizenship , Cruz was a Canadian Citizen from birth .

    Rubio is a Con Artist ; born here from two Cuban parents . Rubio was 5 years old when his parents became U.S. Naturalized Citizens ; Therefore not qualified . Rubio supports Illegals , refugees , amnesty for all .

    This is old news but they are still running WTF?

  • cvh3912@yahoo.com

    A concern of mine is, what happens if Cruz or Rubio happen to be the Republican candidate, and at the 11th hour, the Democrats then say, he is not eligible, what happens then? This is what should have happened when Obama was on the ballot. Hillary and Bill knew the truth, she was forced out, that is why she became Senator and Sec of State, it was payback. Neither Cruz, Rubio, Jindal, nor Nikki Haley are eligible to be POTUS or VP. Rubio, Jindal, and Haley are all anchor babies, not one parent was a US citizen when they were born. Not adhering to the Constitution is opening us up to many future problems. There is a big baby tourism business in California, mostly to wealthy Chinese. They come here during pregnancy, are put up in hotels that cater to this, have the baby, return to home country. This needs to be stopped.
    The POTUS and VP are to be Natural born citizens, born on US soil to two US citizen parents, period. John Jay wrote Geo Washington regarding this matter and they agreed that the office of POTUS and VP were to be held to a higher level of citizenship than any other office.

  • Peter Smith

    Chris, NBC status is inherited from a citizen parent if added to “Jus soli” and from a parent alone, if the parent is a NBC. Try the 14th again, you ignorant sack of hammers. You won’t understand the written word since some the words have more than four letters. And yes, you are still a dumb-ss!

    • cvh3912@yahoo.com

      Parents do not have to be NBC, just need to be citizens (both)at time of child’s birth. Natural born citizen is born on US soil to two US citizen parents. US military bases and US Embassies qualify as US soil.

      • Peter Smith

        Nope! Read the 14th and supporting law.

    If not for the illegals in Nevada Rubos poll numbers couldn’t even beat Kaisch or Carson. take the illegals vote away and even Ried couldn’t pull off a victory for Rubio. Reid and Rubio got their PHOTO OPS but the smile were quickly erased and turned to tears as Rubio RAN OUT of TOWN.

    I am not a supporter of Cruz, and for Rubio I still don’t know. What I do know, Rubio is a Native American, born and raised in the USA. Cruz was born in Canada, mother of a Native American. They both can be presidents of the USA.

  • Robert Trebes

    Based upon Senator Cruz’s parents, the ‘Status’ of ‘Both’ his parents and the following Supreme Court Cases in the 1800’s, I would have to say NO, Cruz is not eligible to be President!…Also Senator Rubio has eligibility issues.
    Joseph Farah of WND Publication stated on Sean Hannity some time ago when asked by Mr. Hannity…What do you think about Senator Mark Rubio running for President?, he replied that he is not Constitutionally Eligible to be President as he is not a ‘Natural Born Citizen’, he was born in Florida (US Citizen by Birth), however, his parents did not become US Citizens until 4 years after his birth. I believe sometime in the 1800’s there was a Supreme Court Justice that ‘Defined’ what a ‘Natural Born Citizen’ is, it is a person born to both parents being US Citizens. This definition is why a ‘Ruling’ had to be Made on Senator John McCain when he ran for President in 2008 (He was born to both parents being US Citizens), however he was born at the Panama Canal Zone, the Ruling was that the Panama Canal Zone was a US Possession, his Dad at the time was in the US Military assigned to this Duty Station, thus is US Sovereign Soil and McCain was a ‘Natural Born Citizen’ and Eligible to be a US President! By this ‘Definition’ Senator Mark Rubio, Senator Ted Cruz and possibly other ‘Candidates’ will not be Constitutionally Eligible to become a US President. I believe the reason the Republicans did not ‘Challenge’ Obama’s Eligibility is that they made a ‘Back Room Deal’ with the Democrats as the Republicans knew they would be running Non-Constitutionally Eligible Candidates in the future.CONCLUSION
    Finally it should be noted, that to define a term is to indicate the category or class of things which it signifies. In this sense, the Supreme Court of the United States has never applied the term “natural born citizen” to any other category than “those born in the country of parents who are citizens thereof”.
    Hence every U.S. Citizen must accept this definition or categorical designation, and fulfil his constitutional duties accordingly. No member of Congress, no judge of the Federal Judiciary, no elected or appointed official in Federal or State government has the right to use any other definition; and if he does, he is acting unlawfully, because unconstitutionally.

  • AKLady2015

    Evidence that Trump is not fit to hold the highest office.
    Proof that Trump is an ignorant bitgot.
    He cannot even be bothered to look up the qualifdications for citizenship.
    Marco Rubio was born un the United States. He is a natural born citizen.

  • edorr1atcoxdotnet

    The question is, what do we get if Trump is elected; the way he seems to fire off without thinking I would hate to think what might happen. I think we do know that Kasich, Carson, or Bush (yes I know he’s folded his candidacy) are all US Born and very much eligible.

  • muthamedia

    Ted is better for SCOTUS. Goldman Sachs, Council on Foreign Relations IS open border crap. Clintonista on his team. More CFR. I know, it hurts.

  • used_to_be_a_liberal

    Has anyone seen Rubio’s commercial, the one where they use the Vancouver City skyline, oh that is Vancouver British Columbia Canada, and a tug boat, also Canadian, as it is flying a Canadian Flag.
    Maybe Rubio isn’t qualified after all.

    • Sherry

      Rubio isn’t qualified because of his weak politics. Ted, however; not only is he QUALIFIED, he is eligible to run, maybe even more so than Trump. ALL of them are more qualified OR eligible than “O”!!

      • used_to_be_a_liberal

        no disagreement from me.

      • Mister Vice

        It doesn’t matter where the babe was born as much as what is contained in the heart of the adult. I do not find any of them unpatriotic nor do they give reason for mistrust. So what is this discussion meaning to do, besides wasting time and diverting attention from REAL issues?

  • helensatmary

    Well, what I read very well may be that Cruz is eligible. Not only did two Attorneys take this to court but it was determined that Cruz is eligible. I know there is one more attorney taking it to Court, I believe this week so we will see how that comes out. I think it would be very hard to prove that he is not eligible from all I have read.

  • Mary Eleanor Urso

    Republicans should replace their smart elephant mascot with a stupid turkey mascot. Yes, the Dems will jump all over the Cruz and Rubio citizenship issue. What was permissible for Obama will not be permissible for either Cruz or Rubio. We all know there is a double standard. Trump is safe as his mother became a naturalized citizen before his birth. Republicans, including Republican voters, need to start thinking in terms of “whose citizenship is without question and who can beat any and every single Democrat that may end up being their Presidential Candidate. That should be the ONLY focus. If we lose this election, folks, it’s all over for the United States of America.

  • KAY HOHLER

    Is Trump afraid of anyone opposing him, now he’s going after Rubio, is he so afraid of not winning the election, he’s the only one that can run, right? Somethings wrong with someone who cannot get along with anyone, all he does is trash and attack, what adult acts like this? He has ruined the whole election process.

    • Sherry

      YOU JUST NAILED IT, Joanne!! The petulant child should be ineligible as he is known to deal and do “business” with Chicago and NYC crime bosses! He has NO sense of propriety, integrity, manners, or CLASS! ALL he is is a well dressed rich THUG, that BTW, the BANKS OWN!!! He was able to get away with so much crime because everybody was AFRAID of him! It is a fearful thing to fall out of grace with the Donald! HE SHOULD BE IN PRISON right along with the Clintons!! He has so many “influential” people in his pockets that he KNOWS that money talks and bullsh*t walks! THIS IS what American politics and “business” has come to: GREED and POWER! We have become “RUSSIA”!!

          Maybe, but that “MESSAGE” will destroy what is left of America as we have known her! God, PLEASE help us!

      • Skyhawk

        In my opinion, Trump lost all credibility when he started using the liberal lies about Saddam’s WMDs which was proven beyond doubt that he possessed.

    • Ken says

      OMG – Trump is ruining the whole process that has been in place for 27 years – the RINOs in charge of the GOP select who will be nominee and the sheep will vote for that nominee without question. Guess what! Voters finally opened their eyes and see how they have been scammed for the last 27 years. Parties in control of Congress and the White House change but the same progressive agenda moves forward. It’s Time For A Change – TRUMP 2016

    • danstewart

      NO, idiots like you & those who voted for the bummer have ruined the election process. Why don’t you just support Putin for president?

  • John S. Zimmer

    It does NOT say the eligibility for Pres or VP is that the person running for the office be a Naturalized Citizen.

    • peeweetanner@yahoo.com

      wont that make trump a anchor baby

  • peeweetanner@yahoo.com

    SO DOES TRUMP in 1946 mother his mother is from scotland he was born in 1946 his mother wasnt naturalized until 1948

    • Sherry

      YOU MEAN: Trump’s Scottish Mother was NOT “naturalized” for some 2 years until AFTER the Donald was born?? WELL….that puts him in the same boat as the 2 Cubans, eh??

  • Ken says

    Both Cruz and Rubio need to have clarification from the SCOTUS on their Citizenship status. Cruz was in a much better position to run for Prime Minister of Canada than President of the US. Rubio is an “Anchor Baby” born in the USA – his parents were not US Citizens. Both have a potential problem that NEEDS to be clarified before the Convention in July. Let’s push both candidates to get this cleared up NOW.

    • Cookie Vranish

      SCOTUS is the biggest joke since Scalia died. It is now a total political group that should be elected for a fixed number of years and not appointed. They make laws now and have no legitimate function any longer.

      • Sherry

        THIS time, you are spot on!

      • Ken says

        If the SCOTUS doesn’t clarify they are qualified what will you do when the DEMs take it to court and the GOP candidate is disqualified in October 2016? Take your head out and clean the brown ring off your neck. Anti, anti. anti doesn’t win an election. Don’t follow the Tea Party lead.

        • Cookie Vranish

          Oh Ken what can I say to someone as small as yourself. I would love to say something that would make you understand but it would be like talking to a fence post! Have a nice day anyway!

          • Ken says

            Oh Cookie – as fence posts go you sound like an old one with dry rot and no substance left. Don’t worry about a life – it would only confuse you. To bad JEB dropped out – he is just your speed.

      • Ken says

        Elected a bad idea but term limits needs to be written into an amendment. You need to brush up on history the SCOTUS does not write any laws – that is the bimbos in Congress.

        • Cookie Vranish

          Sorry Ken but SCOTUS gave us gay marriage and that is a new law. SCOTUS is now making law!

          • Ken says

            Cookie you need to read the Constitution – women can vote, no more slavery, Black citizen can vote, gays can marry, if you have a business license that says open to the public that is what it means. Not writing laws – just verifying that Rights are for ALL Citizens. Not difficult to comprehend.

          • GGH44

            Sorry, Cookie, but Ken is correct–the SCOTUS cannot write/make laws! All SCOTUS did with “gay marriage” was to decide that existing law (DOMA) was unconstitutional. That means that the existing law can technically no longer be enforced. But, literally, the previously existing law is considered to be “the law” until/if Congress either repeals it and creates a new law or changes the portion(s) that were declared unconstitutional. Then, if/when the President signs the new/altered law, it becomes the new law of the land. Therefore, currently there is NO law that “legalizes gay marriage in all 50 states”.

  • Seedman

    It is not just an assertion from Don Juvenile; it is purposeful character assassination. Ted Cruz is the best man by far to become president, for those concerned about the well being of America!

    • Ken says

      YEAH and Ted was better qualified to be Prime Minister of Canada. There would have been no question of where he was a citizen.

      • 657241

        Yes, Ted is a Canadian citizen, one could not renounce one’s place of birth. Any 3rd grader knows that. His parents were both Canadians when Ted was born. Yes, his mom was born in Delaware and is a US citizen, until she and her Cuban citizen husband moved to Canada. In Canada, immigration laws do not allow dual citizenship. So Ted’s parents were required to become Canadian citizens. They are registered Canadian citizen voters, participating in their civic duty as Canadian citizens.
        Keep in mind, Ted’s parents were not in the military, like John McCain. McCain is eligible to be POTUS because both his parents were us citizens at time of McCain’s birth, even if he was born in Panama, a foreign country. Ted Cruz’s parents were not in the military. We don’t have a military base or station in Canada. TED WAS BORN IN CANADA.
        Both Ted CRUZ and Marco Rubio are not natural born, therefore BOTH ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO BE POTUS.
        Same with NIKKI HALEY, BOBBY JINDAL.

        • Seedman

          This article is obviously spurious. Not worth taking the time to disprove its content. Trus-Ted for president and the well being of America!

            BINGO!!! And “O”s father was AFRICAN, Not even naturalized and his mother was a gallivanting slut around the world as a “wife” to a Muslim and raised a COMMUNIST!! WHICH background for a POTUS would you prefer?? One man is a Constitutional Lawyer who really LOVES this nation, her people, and GOD! The other guy is a questionable ( no background available to scrutinize) HATES America and her people and GOD! Is probably a Muslim, homosexual, and a Manchurian Candidate! Our history will reflect what this nation is NOW made up of. Certainly NOT the glowing transforming national pride in our laws and people! WHERE DID WE GO WRONG???

          • danstewart

            I am NOT saying that Cruz is not a great man, initially I was for him, still am, just not for president. He is a great senator, but not eligible to be potus, just like the bummer.

          • Sherry

            SEEMS to me if SCOTUS was O.K. with the “O”bummer, then Ted should sail through with flying colors! They ALL know him well!!! At least THIS Constitutional lawyer REALLY IS a Constitutional lawyer! Ted has argued before them multiple times and always won the decision! THAT speaks volumes to ME!

            There was MULTIPLE attempts to bring the questionable status of the “O” before the SCOTUS! ALL of those circuit and district judges quashed the writs so that SCOTUS could not address this before 1-20-08! Always too many dirty lawyers/judges in too many high places! There was so much outrage over the phoney birth certificates, the foreign aid student status, the SSI#, the college and foreign records of his “education”, YET nothing was done to resolve the questions! And, to put salt in the wound, “O” SEALED ALL of his records to the tune of over 6million at tax payers expense! HOW IN GOD’S NAME can this happen in THIS Country??? HOW??? Nothing has been solved YET!!

            I have KNOWN 16 year olds that had their heads on straight and would vote after scrutinizing every aspect of their candidacy. I have known aged people who should NEVER be allowed to vote!! I asked my old neighbor why she voted for “O” and her answer was, “He’s a Democrat!”…….She regretted that statement 2 years later before she died. I believe it goes back to the parenting and teaching proper values and integrity AT HOME! Unfortunately, too many folks ship their kids off to poisonous universaties and never put any work into their children’s thinking! Reporters were asking university students WHY Bernie??? “Because he promised we would get a FREE college “education”! REALLY??? REALLY! When asked WHO was going to pay for their education: “Uh, I donno, Bernie, maybe?” This is the crop of kids that are going to be in charge of us someday! ALL of them COMMUNIST and don’t have a clue of what’s ahead for them! LAZY, frivolous, and uneducated slobs like Bernie, who never worked for a paycheck in his miserable life!

            I have long known that Trump is a red herring; a plant to divide and thus destroy the Conservative movement

            When I learned that Trump spent over 45 minutes on the phone with the Clintons 2 weeks before he announced his run, I KNEW that we were in for a very rugged dirty political season! “You’re FIRED” Trump has long gotten too much attention from the flaky masses! I don’t think he realized that he had struck the American anger nerve until he found polls promising him a real win! WE ALL KNOW that he was NEVER Conservative; in fact he’s the antithesis of our Party’s Platform: PRO GOD, Pro life, Pro all of the amendments, pro tax reform, pro small government, pro balanced budget amendment, and so on! We all KNOW his true “character”: Liar, disingenuous, Corruption, greed, Egotistical, self centered and self important, Bombastic, and so much more! YET, the stupid people keep licking his boots and kissing his dirty butt! I honestly don’t understand it! ALL of his inflated promises, false charges, innuendo, and course speeches should have shaken all of them to the core! Remember when this “christian” claimed that “two Corinthians” meant a lot to him?? Twice someone asked him why and he refused to answer them! BOLD for Jesus Christ or manipulating the dullards?? He LOVES the camera, but if he gets caught in less than favorable light, he usually has a ready “answer”! Threaten to sue…! I think Trump has had a change of heart: MAYBE, HE REALLY CAN WIN…IF that’s the case, then to hell with the Demoncraps, I’m going all IN for it! The biggest prize YET: POTUS….GREED and POWER! NOW, HE will have that “pen and a phone” all the while his finger in near the proverbial “button”! GOD HELP US!! PLEASE!!!

For 2 days, Ted stood before the Senate and shouted the whole mess to the Senate; outright calling Mitch a LIAR!!! THAT’S WHY those RINO’S HATE TED!!! He won’t go along to get along! I LOVE and TRUST TED for that as well as his fights before the SCOTUS ,of which he has NEVER lost a case!!! THAT’S the kind of Intelligence and INTEGRITY we need in the White House! He reminds me of Ronald Reagan when the Senate tried to lambaste and trip up Reagan! Reagan then made sure that the American people KNEW what was going on EVERY WEEKEND he REPORTED to the American people! His second run, he won by a LANDSLIDE!!! The entire Senate and congress as well as the Russians, Europeans, and ASIA GREW to LOVE and RESPECT that GREAT American President!!! You will NEVER get that with the Donald clown! The other day, Donald claimed to be a cameleon; that he could change at the drop of a hat anytime he felt like it! That guy has NO ROOTS, FOUNDATION of ethics, and NO scruples! CHRISTIAN??? NOT!!

    And now it begins

  • John S. Zimmer

    Based on the U.S. Constitution neither Rubio or Cruz is eligible for the Vice Presidency or the Presidency as neither of them is a “Natural Born Citizen” which has been interpreted to mean the offspring of two U.S. Citizen Parents. Case closed. By the way, the same ineligibility applies to Obama, as his father was never a U.S. Citizen. I’m actually surprised these learned Constitutional Scholars are so inept or corrupted that they have not weighed in on this issue for the last eight years.

    • Raylan Givens

      Where does it state in the United States Constitution or constitutional law that natural born means “the offspring of two U.S. Citizen Parents”?

      • DrRisk

        Nowhere. He just brushes teeth with gunpowder and shoots off his mouth.

        • John

          A jackass foolish statement for such an important issue.

          • DrRisk

            Don
            Don’t flatter yourself.

          • John

            That is the best come back you have? Thanks proving my point.

          • DrRisk

            I’m sorry you misunderstood. Don’t flatter yourself by believing I care what you think. I don’t. The only “point” you have is atop your skull.

          • John

            Don’t flatter yourself. I misunderstood nothing and you just keep proving my position. I am neither a supporter or detractor of Trump – nor Rubio or cruz. But, I am a supporter of our Constitution. This issue of POTUS eligibility is an extremely critical issue that keeps being raised and it MUST be resolved! If not, America will not exist as we know it. But all that you can do is throw “gun powder on the problem! It is people like you who are fanning the flames of our nation’s conflagrations and dividing our nation. You just keep digging yourself a deeper hole for all of us.

          • Greg

            John I’m sorry for upsetting you. It was not my intention. John America does not exist as we knew it!! that day has come and gone. Try focusing on something you can change for the benefit of our country. Not about some mother who voted in a Canadian election! Or whether Canada offered dual citizenship !! Again it has nothing to do with eligibility !! Enjoy your evening John , I’m going fishing

          • John

            Thanks for ur cold or lukewarm concern for the welfare of our society and nation. You go ahead and go fishing and just let our society and nation “go to Hell in a hand basket.” That’s no better than an Ostrich burying its head in the sand. FOOLS!

          • Greg

            John come on, you have to put your energy into something that you can accomplish. You can’t fall for all the crap that is intentionally thrown up against a wall. They are purposely doing this to keep you and others like you from accomplishing anything. Read some of the posts? The 24 hour news cycle John keeps all the sheep from focusing on any 1 issue. I’m not questioning your patriotism at all!! But to truly change the direction of this corrupt nation, we all need to focus!! Regardless who you like in this election John, our government from the state dept epa, dept education, FDA, has been over run by people with an agenda to destroy this country! The crap that they teach our children, the history that they have rewritten! That they have been selling to our kids for 45 to 60 years!! Like I said we need to pick one issue stay focused and accomplish it!! Thanks John enjoy your day sir. Sorry for the long post

          • Mister Vice

            John, the good Dr is stating the opinion of ONE PERSON. You DO get that,right? Just one person and he can not dig a hole for anyone since (and I’m not sure if you know this or not) we are NOT the Supreme Court Justices here. We are just a bunch of ordinary folks debating the issue. We won’t be making any decisions today, I promise!

          • Mister Vice

            Don’t worry Dr he didn’t. Funny thing is, he isn’t even aware of that fact!

          • Mister Vice

            Have you read the rest of the comments here? Many are more serious in tone and yet just as foolish. I, for one, appreciate a little levity now and again. No one is gonna die from this topic so just relax John. If you find yourself in a three sided ambush and you’re running low on ammo, now THAT’S a time to get TENSE!!!

      • Greg

        It doesn’t raylan, it’s how its interpreted by many lawyers and scholars. So it’s my understanding any us citizen giving birth that child is a U.S citizen whether it’s delivered in Kenya , Canada, or Mars .

        • Peter Smith

          And the same response could be used to confirm Cruz and Rubio do indeed meet the requirements as a “natural born citizen”. That makes their candidacies legitimate and Constitutional. And yes, even Mars, it is called “natural born by blood”.

            Look it up cretinous fecal encephalos. You really need to understand Donald Trump is not the final authority on this issue. Donald (and his merry band of Trumpateers) should have taken a class in anatomy and geology, that way they could tell their -ss from a hole in the ground.

          • danstewart

            Evidently you are a young person who attended school AFTER they stopped teaching US history.

          • Sandy129

            Amen! I was aghast to hear my youngest daughter tell me she didn’t have to take any more history, it wasn’t mandatory and she didn’t. I couldn’t believe they quit making history mandatory in high school, It sure wasn’t when I went to school. She made out well in other ways though with her education as she followed in my footsteps and is a RN. She is clueless about history thought and that’s sad.

          • Mister Vice

            Our education system os letting us down as a nation. If we don’t learn from history then we are doomed to repeat the old mistakes forever.

          • Sandy129

          • Peter Smith

            LOL! I’m 56 years old and have been researching this issue for about the last 6 mos. There is SCOTUS precedent on the “by blood” issue. Look it up since I know you don’t/won’t believe me.

          • danstewart

            By blood for US citizen, not natural born citizen.

          • Peter Smith

            Wrong answer Dan.

          • danstewart

            As I said elsewhere on this blog, why not some woman go get knocked up by Putin & have the offspring run for potus. Makes as much sense as your idea.

          • Peter Smith

            It is not MY idea Dan. It is case law. And if the woman is a US citizen, it could apply. Putin is still better than being knocked up by ANY progressive, liberal Democrat.

          • danstewart

            I agree with your last sentence, but not the first, except that maybe the offspring could be an American citizen, just not a natural born citizen. As you well know, there is a difference.

          • Peter Smith

            Google “natural born citizen by blood”. There is a link to a law
            Professor on the Atlantic link. Pretty good article actually. And then there is still case law that supports his assertions.
            The authors name is Brian Garner.

          • danstewart

            I trust professors a little less than I trust politicians. I think that you agree, this needs to be defined once & for all.

          • Sherry

            I can tell you from experience: those “Professors” are ALL Communists who train (brainwash) their little mush-heads on how to be certified communists who then go on to become our nations Politicians and lawyers! WHAT you see today are those same “students” I went to school with! Almost all of them are Communist/Liberals that they like to call “socialists”! Stanford U is a perfect case in point! Bernie Sanders so reminds me of some of those Angela Davis nasty and unscrupulous hanger-oners with the black panthers quickly in tow!

            I still thank God for Billy Graham who opened my stupid eyes!

          • Mister Vice

            The world of academia is a festering cesspool of liberal ideology gone awry.

          • Sherry

            AMEN and AMEN!!! I can certainly testify to that!

          • Peter Smith

            This guy is a little more than just a professor, you can admit that for starters. But he is not the Courts, he has stated an informed opinion, I agree. It has been defined in the past and I’m sure additional clarification is coming soon, will the doubters believe then?

          • danstewart

            I don’t think it will be positively defined until obummer is out of office & gone. Otherwise, it would prove he stole 2 terms illegally. I wish the founders had clarified nbc, it’s like telling a child ‘don’t do that’ & the child is thinking ‘don’t do what’.

          • Peter Smith

            Obama stole two terms IF his Hawaii BC WAS false. Researched a little. Hate the MF but “We the People” can’t prove his BC is fake. Someone knows and they are remaining quiet, one way or the other, if you catch my meaning. In their minds, I think they (the Founders) probably did clarify the term NBC, they just didn’t put it in the Constitution, hindsight is 20/20. The Law is not so black and white anymore. Cruz is a good man and he’ll prove it if given the chance.

          • Mister Vice

            This isn’t about what makes sense to “danstewart” but what is written in the Constitution. Like it or not,THAT is the law and it isn’t completely specific (I think by design) so we have some wiggle room to further define the law. But that hasn’t happened yet. Too bad more people like you weren’t so up in arms when Obama was wiggling into power like an intestinal nematode!

          • danstewart

            I was up in arms against obummer, as a matter of fact, I lost my job for talking too much. I sure wish the founding fathers had not assumed that future generations would be smart enough to figure out what they meant.

          • Mister Vice

            Still turns my stomach when I think of it!

          • Mister Vice

            Sorry to hear that you lost your job. Were you a federal employee? I know there are some tough rules about talking smack about the POTUS. Maybe you should just take out your frustrations online here against me. I make a pretty good target but not easy to hit! Ha!

          • danstewart

            I actually serviced bank computers, & some of the blacks started complaining to the boss & I caught the heat since I’m white.

          • Mister Vice

            Understood. Gotta know your environment when you talk politics, religion or sexual affairs. Somebody is likely to not agree with you and then complain. Discretion, as they say, is the better part of valor.

          • Sherry

            That’s possible, I guess…….that’s what “O”s “mother” did! That entire bunch was Communist through and through!

            Th

          • Mister Vice

            You see Dan, this is where you go astray. While you might be furthering “your idea” how this works, we are not. We have read the law and only try to impart some knowledge to a few very reluctant students.

          • Mister Vice

            You need to explain your statement dan. Natural born is a US citizen and so is a naturalized citizen. THOSE are the only two categories of becoming a citizen. Therefore, if a US citizen didn’t go through the naturalization process, then that person HAS TO BE natural born citizen!

          • danstewart

            If this is so, then why does the constitution specify “natural born citizen” for president & vice president only? All other offices just specify US citizen.

          • Mister Vice

            Obviously whatever requirements are levied for the POTUS must also be required of the VP. Makes sense, right? That is the office where a person with loyalties to another country/nation could certainly rip this republic into pieces. Don’t forget that at the time when our Founding Fathers wrote this, there were still plenty of disgruntled Loyalists who disagreed with the Revolution. The reasons are not so critical nowadays but it avoids someone being born and raised in another land coming to the US and rising to the highest office in the land.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            No, can be born here (native born); can be naturalized – how an immigrant becomes a citizen; or be born on US soil to two US citizen parents. The last is a Natural born citizen.

          • Sandy129

            There are many “precedents” that violated our Constitution but that doesn’t make it right. Enemies of our Constitution have twisted it to mean what it was never intended to say. Our Founders wrote what they meant and meant what they wrote. Many have worked for years to steal our heritage and blind our children to the truth. And its working…

          • Peter Smith

            Okay Sandy129, your premise is “the Founders wrote what they meant and meant what they wrote”. In THEIR WORDS, not quoting from Vattel or any other source, what did the Founders mean in the term “natural born citizen”. If they meant it, and I personally believe they did, how do they define “natural born citizen” in their own written word. Don’t assume, the actual written text please. I am a Conservative American so don’t get started on the attempting to brand me a liberal, you will not appreciate my response.

          • Sandy129

            I already told you…pull up the ORIGINAL version of Dissertation by David Ramsay and you can read for yourself. I don’t know why that is so hard for you.

          • Peter Smith

            You made my point, Ramsay writes the children of citizens are themselves “citizens at birth” , a.k.a., “natural born citizens”, Thank you. I’m sure it is not the response you were seeking.

          • Sandy129

            I wasn’t looking for any response, I had already told you what you needed to know a few posts back. You are just another person that can’t discuss an issue without being contentious. I don’t label people anything, their own words speak for themselves.

          • Peter Smith

            Sandy129, you tell people what they need to know? By what standard do you judge what others “need to know”? You are a disingenuous POS thinking you are an authority on ANYTHING! I refuted your “facts” and you don’t like it so much, do you? Honestly Sandy129, when I want to hear from an -SSHOLE, I’ll fart. I told you earlier you would not like my response, how about now? I’m at least sure you won’t miss my meaning.

          • Sandy129

            Trying to have a civil conversation with some is impossible. I don’t know people here and neither does anyone else. I feel sorry for you.

          • Peter Smith

            Don’t feel sorry Sandy, I feel nothing at all for you. It’s amazing how tones change, yours in particular, when your assertions just don’t pass the smell test.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            Read http:// cdrkerchner.wordpress.com. Good info. Vattell’s Law of Nations was used as reference by our founding fathers.

          • Peter Smith

            I’ve read Vattell. One question, how many democratic republics existed 50 years before we became a nation? You realize this is the timeline of Vattell consolidating the words of three other writers, much earlier I might add, into his Law of Nations. Another question, where is it stated that Vattell’s definitions are the last word in the NBC discussion? Vattell had no ties to our nation, ever! How do you equate his definition to our nation? His writing had much more than just the requirements of citizenship. Do it ALL apply to our nation? I don’t put much stock in using Vattell as your “ace in the hole”, good luck with that.

            Bable bable to young to know your dumb down read on your own don’t listen to these crossed up teachers of today. Go to the oldest library you can and look at everything even the federalist papers that explains the meanings of the wordings in the Constitution.

          • Peter Smith

            My teachers were and are those of yesteryear Chris. It is amazing that you say you have gone to libraries and read everything on the subject. I’ll call BS Chris. You’ve read everything and cannot even capitalize and punctuate in a literate manner. And no, the Federalist papers do not define the entire wording and meanings to the Constitution, ……… But how would I know this? WHOOOOOOOOA! Now go babble elsewhere.

          • chris berrian

            Ok sweet heart I fixed it for you. WHoooooooooa!!! Babble,Babble you still don’t know shit. Look up David Ramsey 1789 he defined naturalborn citizens. Whooooooa!

          • Peter Smith

            Funniest thing? I did look up Ramsay, at the request of an earlier posted response. Ramsay has language that supports Cruz as a NBC. Too bad for you.
            Now your turn, check out the 14th Amendment and the requirements explained for NBC. Read carefully and slowly (the way you always so I’m sure) and start your whinin’, boy! The term for the Cruz NBC is “Jus sanguinis”, or in plain language, “the right of blood”. Remember, ONE of those “definitions ” is part of our Constitution, the other, YOURS, not so much. Good luck, you’ll need it but won’t get it.

          • chris berrian

            Ok pete lick natural born means inherited from the founders and the people that where there in our country at that time of the revolution. Read real real slowww…

          • Peter Smith

            Chris, stop licking your nuts long enough to get a breath. You’re going brain dead due to lack of oxygen. My “natural born citizen” status came from my parents, “Jus sanguinis” and from my place of birth, “Jus soli”. I have no genetic connection to any of the founders that I am aware of but I am a Natural born citizen of the United States. My ancestors immigrated legally to this nation before 1900. They became naturalized citizens, and gave my grand parents and parents their own NBC status. Which I turn, I inherited.
            You’re either stoned or stupid thinking you a have any clue about the subject. “Natural born” does not mean inherited from the Founders or people in America at the time of the revolution. What an idiot you are. I’m very happy you are a Trumpateer, with followers like you, … What could possibly go wrong?

Dad was a Cuban citizen, did not get US citizenship until a few years ago. Canada did not have dual ciiizenship in 1970, did not have until 1977?? So, when and how did he aquire US citizenship?
            Rubio born to 2 Cuban citizen parents.
            Natural born citizen is born on US soil to two US citizen parents. US military bases and US Embassies qualify as US soil.

          • Peter Smith

            No, actually her name was on a voting registry. There is, from what I’ve seen, no indication she cast a ballot. Either way, she would STILL be a NBC of the United States. You are mistaken in your arguments about NBC requirements. Review the 14th Amendment and supporting documentation.

          • Mister Vice

            Or you can just read the Harvard Law Review to get the latest interpretation from the experts. It’s online chris.

            There you go! There are several sources where we can get virtually the same answers on this. There is too much fireside armchair speculation over the subject but it isn’t such a major issue. We have alarmists from every side screaming the “sky is falling” but we have bigger fish to fry. Time for some folks to stop wasting time and energy and concentrate on our national priorities.

            Donald won’t need to actually PROVE anything, Pete. He knows all he has to do is plant a seed of doubt on every candidate to lose some of their support. Too bad that too many weak-minded folks WANT to believe him so badly they put aside their ability for discrimination and look at the facts. He is using nothing more than a Star Wars Jedi mind trick to convince the feeble. It worked in the movie and it has worked for Trump throughout his successful career as a realtor.

            it has been determined that Cruz i eligible he fall under the same guide lines as McCain does. Cruzs mother was an American Citizen. Rubio’s parent s were not American citizens. Rubio parents came here illegally when he was born. every thing Rubio says is lies and lies, Rubio is like obama he can’t tell the truth.
            We have had enough of the Pathological liars. Rubio is a Con-man and with the help of Fox and the RNC he is getting better at it by the hour.

          • dennis w

            McCain was born on AMERICAN soil ( a military base…military bases are AMERICAN soil wherever and in whatever country they are located ) and his parents are both AMERICAN citizens…..that makes him ‘NATURAL BORN’……..
            cruz’s father was not a ‘naturalized’ or an AMERICAN citizen when he was born…
            plus cruz was born on foreign soil…..Canada…….
            cruz has only one AMERICAN citizen parent ( and even her citizenship is in question)
            supposedly she gave up her AMERICAN citizenship to be able to vote in Canadian elections….
            therefore, at best, he could only claim ‘native’ citizenship and he would have had to apply for that status by the time he was 18…..no records exist that he did even though he was living in Texas….
            bottom line…… NOT ELIGIBLE……..PERIOD…….
            cruz has a difficult time telling the truth also…..you haven’t been listening…….

          • Sherry

            Ya mean kinda like TRUMP??? Fox has adopted him as their “fair haired” golden Child! I just quit Fox for good last week! Trump’s blathering on about how BAD every one who crosses him is. I have quit Hannity altogether! TOO much ass kissing and soft ball questions of no import! Not even his radio show is worth listening to, anymore! They give Trump so much FREE airtime, and won’t even talk to Ted Cruz! I’m done with them! Now, Glenn Beck IS FAIR and Balances and UNAFRAID! His entire 3 hr program is loaded with actual FACTS about every candidate! Maybe HLN is better than Fox, by now! Newsmax is too spoty. As much as I had admired and respected Trey Gowdy, I have lost a great deal of respect for him since he decided to back RUBIO, of all people! I thought he was a Cruz type of guy. Guess NONE of us are perfect in knowledge after all, eh??

          • Peter Smith

            I’m not a Rubio fan, however, his parents immigrated from Cuba pre-Castro and became naturalized citizens in 1975. They are citizens. The rest of your opinion is just that, yours.

          • dennis w

            you’re wrong…….
            that’s ‘native born’ by blood….NOT ‘NATURAL BORN’….
            there’s a huge difference………..
            neither cruz nor rubio is eligible to be POTUS…….

          • Peter Smith

            As the late, great Johnny Catson would say, “you are wrong liver lips”.
            Citizenship, natural born citizen by way of “Jus sanguinis” or the “right of blood” is one of three paths to NBC status. “Jus soli” or “right of the land” and the third is a combo of both.
            Stop being stupid.

          • helensatmary

            Neither of Rubio’s parents were American Citizens. He is not a Natural born citizen.

          • Peter Smith

            Not a fan of Rubio, but ……That is for the Courts to decide. Try researching the 14th Amendment and the term”Jus soli”. You might find out that you are mistaken.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            No, neither meet the requirements to serve as POTUS or VP.

          • Peter Smith

            You cannot support that statement with case law or any law. Donald Trump’s saying it is so doesn’t cut it.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            I have been researching requirements to be POTUS or VP for years, now. I got interested when word was out about obama being an illegal squatter in our WH. Have read what time allows for years. When Cruz started running, I questioned why. His mom said he was an exceptional student from beginning school. As a retired educator, I would have expected him to question his citizenship status in 5th grade, when students start studying history. As a Constitutional scholar, he should certainly know the requirements to be POTUS or VP. Recommend you read http:// cdrkerchner.wordpress.com and Vattell’s Law of Nations along with requirements to be POTUS or VP in the Constitution. Rubio, Bobby Jindal, and rising star, SC Gov Nicki Haley are all anchor babies, not one parent was a US citizen when they were born. . There are 3 categories of citizenship, Native born – born on US soil; Naturalized – route immigrants take to citizenship and Natural born citizen is born on US soil to two US citizen parents, period. Obama does not meet these requirements. Thanks to Pelosi and company, look what he has done to our country. Every day, he does something that costs us money, prestige, world standing, hurts us internally, weakens our economy, weakens people’s selfworth, and makes racial problems worse than they have ever been. The info is available, I take no one’s word, I checkout for myself. I was saying Cruz, Rubio, and Jindal were not eligible ever since they started running. Law suits are filed in Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, and Illinois against Cruz. The Alabama suit is going to be amended to add Rubio, in fact, I met the atty handling that one on Monday. I think there are suits in additional states. It is a shame that this is necessary but we must get back to the Constitution. I would have liked to have Cruz for Atty Gen or maybe even for the SCOTUS, but think he has now shot himself in the foot for any such position. Cruz and Rubio need to go home and do what they were elected to do. I have been involved in Presidential elections sine 1952, when Eisenhower made his first run, so interest in this issue is not new with me. Incidentally, I did not support Ike in his 1952 or 56 elections. I did not support Kennedy, but was left in disbelief when he was killed, and Oswald did not do it. I recall exactly where I was when the news came on reporting his death. In honest ballot counting, obama would not be sitting where he is. Overseas military votes were not counted in 08 or 12. Colorado, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida had precincts reporting more voters that numbers registrated to vote! 140% of numbers of registrated voters voted, and voted 99% for obama, give me a break, this does not happen! If more than 35% actually vote, it is unusual. Voting machines, owned by Geo Soros, counted votes in many places and there were reports that Republican votes defaulted to Democrat totals! It is difficult to beat duvh. I would like to see the National Guard called to active duty to police elections this time, instead of Black Panters. Also, need to dip finger in long acting dye to keep out multiple voting cases. I think we have now come to this. If we do not get it right this time, it may be our last opportunity.

          • Peter Smith

            Ted Cruz’s mother is and always has been a NBC of the United States. That’s your first mistake. Show me case law or any law past or current that lists Vattell as the definer of NBC. Mistake two. Read the 14th Amendment and the legal arguments and explanation on the three paths to NBC. Mistake three. What will your opinion be when Ted Cruz is proved a NBC? Acceptance? Probably not. Like you said, Ted Cruz is a Constitutional scholar and defender of the same. Do you really believe he would have started his candidacy without having his ducks in a row? Ted Cruz is my elected Senator from Texas, and he has my vote for POTUS as well.

        • Sherry

          Isn’t it interesting that Trump had his multiple lawyers RESEARCH Cruz and Rubio’s “natural born status”??? Back then, the Donald loudly proclaimed that there was no question that they were eligible for the run! NOW, however, that they have made inroads into Trump territory, Trump plays the “questionable card”!! He is such an unscrupulous pig! At that time, he was considering having them as VP and AG! NOW, somehow, they are LIARS and untrustworthy….WHICH IS IT, DONALD?!!!

          • leewacker

            No, it is my opinion Trump never thought about either until Cruz brought up the fact that Trump’s mom was born in Scotland, and the entire question went from there! But, by the strictest interpretation of the Constitution which should be the guidlines here, neither is eligible, and, frankly, I don’t want a two-bit “anchor baby” for a president–especially as that jerk is well into George Soros’ camp because of some promises he made to certain of his donors! Rubio would sell out the country for twenty pieces of silver or less, and laugh while he did it!

            OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is not just ‘a patch of dirt’……

            get out of my country you hateful CREEP…..you don’t deserve to live here……eat shidt and die…..
            you disgusting piece of festering puss filled flesh…..

          • Mister Vice

            I am a 27 year military veteran. Been to every conflict from the end of Viet Nam to a stop/loss tour in Afghanistan. I have ate more dirt in that sandbox and sacrificed (willingly) for my country. I was deployed when my daughters graduated from HS and my service cost me two marriages (takes a special person to stay at home while you’re gone) while I never could buy a house and settle in any one place due to being moved every three years or less.

            So dennis I am not moved one bit by your decidedly unpatriotic rant against my rights to express myself. Or do you think freedom of speech only applies to YOU, Mr Self Absorbed. For accusing me of not being loyal to this country, I will excuse you for being ignorant. You don’t know who you address and you don’t care. You THINK you are right in all your dull posts but you don’t impress me.

            Your last line is a laugh dennis, if you want to evict me from MY COUNTRY then you bring your best game. You will need it. So dennis what did YOU do to earn your privilege to live in this country? I’d like to hear from you on this as it SEEMS there is ALWAYS some jackass out there who thinks he invented patriotism.

            Patriotism is risking your ass to keep your buddies alive. I know I am caustic, I have earned that right. My troops called me Grumpy (I’m sure I wasn’t the only NCO who wore that badge of honor) because I would rip them a new one for not listening to orders or paying attention to details. But THAT is exactly why I NEVER brought one of my guys home in a box.

            Same reason anyone of my guys would take you out in a heartbeat for threatening me (they’ve done it before) but that is not what I am. I took care of them so I wouldn’t have to look in the mirror every day wondering if I wasn’t good enough. I had some super troops and everyone of them is breathing today (as far as I know) and I am thankful things worked out that way.

          • Sherry

            Mr.Vice may have been somewhat indelicate, but he really doesn’t deserve that very harsh reply, Dennis.

We all learn a lot from some pretty knowledgeable people and even if I don’t, at that time agree, I’m grateful that these people are trying to understand and act upon what they KNOW! That is SO AMERICAN!!! AT the very least, they are thinking!

            Rubio already sold out this country and every American citizen. Rubio coned the GOP got their support against Crist In Florida, since Rubio got in the Senate he immediately Stabbed us in the back. Rubio is a Progressive Shill. Rubio voted with dems and Lobbyist to make money for his votes. Rubio voted against his Party and the American people. Rubio was caught speaking in Spanish and tell ing the of his plans and his Amnesty for them. Rubio,Gowdy, Ryan,McConnell all Support the ENLIST ACT, it’s the Fast Track for all illegals to get citizenship. Romney also wants this, This is how America will be destroy from within. All illegals are being allowed into our military While Americans are being denied. obama private army will be turned over to Rubio. If Gowdy won’t run again either, has no intentions of indicting hillary. Chaffaz has been told, warned to back of hillary, they don’t want to go after hiltlary. If Rubio get in, Gowdy would be his GA and they would make obama and Holder look like Childs play. Gowdy has represented all the ANTI American groups. Gowdy supports the ENLIST ACT. Gowdy will do for Rubio what Rubio has done for obama. obama couldn’t have done it alone, he needed Rubios help and got it, Big time. the Cuban deal I think is obama way of paying Rubio back, also the closing of Gitmo plays into it. Castro will come to the aid of Rubio.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            Trump’s mom became a citizen 4 years before he was born, so he is a Natural born citizen. Neither Cruz or Rubio is eligible, nor Nikki Haley, or Bobby Jindal to be POTUS or VP.

          • Mister Vice

            Sherry, I have never trusted the Donald’s motives for suddenly turning conservative and entering the race as a Republican. I see him as spoiler for the conservative platform. He has demonstrated very succinctly how absolutely gullible many voters will be when all he has done is make outrageous claims that appeal to core of conservative frustration with the government and a lack of accountability. Erstwise, he has insulted and intimidated his way through the debates while people ignore the fact that his promises have no substance. He is a glorified used car salesman (remember he is a real estate salesman by trade) and reminds me of a snake oil hawker of old. We are in for a rude awakening if we don’t come to our senses soon!

          • Sherry

            GOD BLESS YOU, SIR!!! Your background sounds like my husbands! Thank you for defending this great nation! Appears that God Almighty had His hand on you, Sir Grumpy! Must have been a lot of folks praying for all of you! I KNOW I WAS! Vietnam was a horrific experience that we should never have sent our boys into for no purpose other than to prop up a corrupt Southern Vietnamese General. Our men were not allowed to do their best and were slaughtered for it! Now, that again is happening in the Mid-East! IF we don’t allow them to do what they KNOW needs to be done, then we are spilling our precious blood for NOTHING! Again, thank you for your Patriotic service on our behalf! may God continue to bless you, “Grumpy”!

          • Mister Vice

            No need to thank me Sherry, I volunteered and I (obviously) reupped several times because I felt I could bring those kids home each time. Not that I am all “that” but with age comes wisdom born of experience. I was like a mother hen looking after my brood. All great kids and most had kids of their own, and wives or husbands and siblings and parents and I know how worried I would have been to know MY KID was in harms way. I turned 50 in Afghanistan and I realized my feet and knees wouldn’t last another tour. I led every early morning recon and the terrain was not forgiving. My guys all made it back some some of the best soldiers I’ve ever met weren’t so lucky. Some Seals and some USAF PJs and the Army Rangers were slaughtered at the hands of Taliban. I still see their faces. Most died trying to save a downed comrade. I can’t think of a more heroic thing to do. Anyway,I digress and I apologize Sherry. I thank you for the kind words. God bless you and yours and especially for the prayers you made in our behalf. Thanks again.

          • Sherry

            WRONG! WE DO NEED to thank our Patriots and the fine jobs they all did on our behalf! Can you imagine American life IF there were NO men to protect us?? Hero’s, ALL! And they have been treated so shabbily by so many ingrates! I’m so sorry for our Hero’s plight now.

            God only, is responsible for your courage and safe return! Someday, you will see all of them again, but in perfect order and shape! That’s a PROMISE that our God will keep! He is not an OATH breaker!

          • Mister Vice

            It’s funny Sherry. Even for a guy like me who is far from being a model Christian, one tends to want a closer relationship with Him when you consider you might be standing before Him before the day is done. It keeps you honest while you are trying to kill a few murderous thugs. God forgive, I hope, for not feeling sorry for those we dispatched. I pray that our misguided POTUS not undermine the military and impose stupid Rules of Engagement (ROE) that sets our folks up for failure!

          • Sherry

            There is no such a thing as a “model Christian”,Sir! ALL of us are sinners, and we NEED Him all the time, everyday! He continuously watches over us and protects us from evil onslaughts DAILY! There is NO hoops to jump through because you are NOT good enough for Him…He only wants you to KNOW Him and His unbelievable LOVE for you! No tricks, no “works”, no earning His love, none of that stuff! He is your “ABBA”, your “Daddy”! All He ever wanted was for us to TRUST and obey His leading and guidance! We WILL make mistakes and at times backslide, but like a wonderful Daddy, He doesn’t ever abandon you! In time, as you grow in the knowledge of His Grace towards us, you will realize that you, for the first time in your life, that you REALLY DO LOVE Him! THAT’S when He will start talking to you, just as He told us, “My sheep KNOW MY VOICE”!! Its so true! He will show you things and teach you things that will blow your mind! Things you have read a dozen times before in the Bible, will one day EXPLODE in your mind with the real meanings He meant for you to UNDERSTAND! The simple, “God IF You are real, show me and come into my life!” will suffice. There will be times He will have to chastise you, but don’t lose heart like I did once! I told Him I was so tired of disappointing Him and wanted to PLEASE Him without the “spankings”! He told me that Fathers only correct their own children. That’s a fathers job! Naturally, I exclaimed, “Then, Father, chastise away on me!” WHAT A GOD!!!

        When it said Natural born If a american Indian and a white man or woman have a child it is a half breed not my words but the words of the Indians and to have a male palimino stud breed a quater horse or another breed even tho the Colt looks like his father that does not make him a palimino to be resgisted does it and you could not get papers on him either as a full blood and this my friend is Common Sense

        • Sherry

          You do err, friend! Palomino is a COLOR; not necessarily a “breed”! AQHA registers their palominos as color. I, personally have had 2 palomino mares of the American Saddlebred breed and have crossed them to other palominos ; 1 Tennessee Walker and 1 Registered AQHA . NONE of them produced a palomino. I got 1 cremello, 1 albino, and 2 buckskins! Even though I couldn’t register them as a BREED, I could register them as a COLOR “breed”! When I bred those mares to a light Chestnut Arabian, I finally go my 2 palomino foals! BOTH were registered as Palomino, Half Arab Registry, and National Show Horse Registry! Both were gaited, but I didn’t bother with that registry! So, you see, American Indians ARE native natural born Americans no matter the race or color! Their offspring, likewise! America is not made up of a particular genetic pool like Europe or India, or China. NO, we are Americans because we were BORN here as was at least one parent! In this country, we CHOOSE to be American. We are free to leave and go back to our ancestors, if we want to. Many HAVE and carry dual citizenships.

            I wasn’t referring to the claim of NBC, just the fact that some people have dual citizenship like Liz Taylor and Richard Harris had, that’s all.

HERE, in this country, people experience REAL FREEDOM like no other,like our right to be armed for the protection of ourselves and the people! Ted made the choice to be a fully committed American and I laud him for his courage to stand up against the storm that the EVIL one has thrust against him! Americans should do like they did in the old days; PRAY fervently for our country, our people, and GOD’S Guidance!! I agree….

            you don’t get a ‘pure-bred Doberman by breeding a Doberman with a collie…..
            the same is you don’t get a ‘pure-bred’ AMERICAN citizen other than by breeding with another AMERICAN citizen…..’NATURAL BORN’ or ‘NATIVE BORN’ or ‘PARENTS NATURALIZED BEFORE THE BIRTH OF A CHILD ( WHICH WOULD BE CONSIDERED ‘NATURAL BORN’ )……regardless….to be ‘NATURAL BORN’ one has to be born to two AMERICAN citizens…..end of story…….

          • Sherry

            Unless, of course, that extenuating circumstances still remain. Ted’s folks were living here before work took them to Canada for a few years. They were HERE first. Since his Mom IS an American, and they came home so that Ted could study law, they re-established their own
            American citizenship. I think that is what the lawyers realized…NOTHING like the flagrant dismissal of law concerning “O” and his illegal usurping of our White House! Everything about “O” is corrupt and illegal! YET, the SCOTUS has done NOTHING to correct the matter! WILL they confront Ted or the Donald about THEIR NBC status?? IF they charge them, then they will have to reconsider their open ended charges against “O”! They don’t want to go there! Trumps Mom was a Scottish immigrant; wasn’t even “naturalized” until the Donald was over 2 years old. Trump was a anchor baby…….It seems that we need to openly clarify the wording of the Constitution by Amendment only. ALL states would have to ratify it…I wonder if California is willing to do that?? Sanctuary cities would disappear…….NO?

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            Trumps mom became a US citizen 4 years before he was born, so he is a Natural born citizen. Cruz dad was Cuban, info online says his parents are on Canadian voting rolls in 1972, he was born December 1970, Mom was born in US, did she give up her US citizenship? ? Cruz dad did not become a US citizen until a few years ago. According to online info, Canada did not have dual ciiizenship in 1970, did not have until 1977, there is a question as to when he gained US citizenship. He came to the US at about 4 years of age, not college age.
            Yes, everything about obama shows him as illegal, I can find nothing that proves he is a US citizen at the present time.

          • Mister Vice

            dennis: You are simply making up stuff now. The Constitution never mentions a term you created called “Native born”. ANy baby born on US soil is automatically an American citizen. Thus the path to so-called “anchor baby” citizens is created. There are but two forms of American citizenship: 1) “Natural born citizen” which is a baby born on this sovereign land or a baby born overseas to at least one American parent or, 2) “naturalized citizens” who go through a specific naturalization process. It is the process that most immigrants use to attain legal citizenship. Therefore, if a citizen did NOT undergo the naturalization process, then that person MUST be a “natural born citizen”.

            Read the following, if what I wrote isn’t clear enough for your liking.

            The Congressional Research Service concluded in 2011:

            “The weight of legal and historical authority indicates that the term ‘natural born’ citizen would mean a person who is entitled to U.S. citizenship ‘by birth’ or ‘at birth,’ either by being born ‘in’ the United States and under its jurisdiction, even those born to alien parents; by being born abroad to U.S. citizen-parents; or by being born in other situations meeting legal requirements for U.S. citizenship ‘at birth.'”

            The predominant legal scholarship holds that the term natural born citizen applies, quite simply, to anyone who is a U.S. citizen at birth, or by birth, and does not have to go through the naturalization process. The child of parents who are U.S. citizens, regardless of whether he or she is born abroad, fits into the category under most modern interpretations.

          • David Stovall

            One of your statements is mistaken: any baby born on US soil. See 8 US code~ 1401 lists two requirements, not just one. Also the Supreme Court in Elk vs Wilkins ruled ” being born in the US is not sufficient for citizenship”. Plus there is a lot more re two requirements. You are correct about two categories, natural born or naturalized..

          • Mister Vice

            Apparently you just can’t get enough of making an ass of yourself. dennis there is a huge difference between bloodline and citizenship. Or to put another way, citizenship is not in the DNA. If so, then I would have citizenship in several western European nations. I am actually tiring of explaining this. You can try to understand and grow in that understanding or just stubbornly stick to the skewed perspective you have of citizenship. Just wondering dennis, do you have any naturalized family members? I do and I am VERY familiar with process that takes at least 5 years. I have children born overseas due to my frequent military movements so I KNOW how citizenship works for foreign born Americans. It’s not that complicated nor is it all that crucial. But the law is the law. The way you talk about citizenship it sounds a little like an Aryan Supremacy rant about ethnic purity.

          • Mister Vice

            By the way dennis, do you always upvote yourself when you make a post? Very impressive.

            It was just a weak “comparison”…a mistaken one. He was trying , wrongly, to convey his thoughts about NBC.

            At least he got into the conversation! That is so important!

        • David Stovall

          The principal author of the 14th Amendment, John Bingham, explained it for history: ” every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty , is in the language of the constitution itself, a natural born citizen,” note : two requirements, not one. Anchor babies are not citizens. Big lie by somebody and it has regrettably taken root.

      • JACK3889

        Search: 1875 Minor v. Happersett–Natural born. Try the Laws of Nations–Citizenship section also. But high court definitely established natural born as binding precedent in Minor. They went far beyond the 14th Amendment in doing so.

            Not wild about the “kid”; but I concur! “Rap” indicates a juvenile delinquent, of which there would be no released record. What, he got a speeding ticket? Cross walk violation? Just what was the “arrest” for?? Sounds like another Trump false flag innuendo to me! Typical Trump move…….

            I don’t care much for Marco either. He’s too brash and young. That office needs experience and maturity. Signing up for congressional committees that you don’t attend is nothing but selfish self-promotion by building a resume which has no accomplishments. He claims to be a “national security expert” but he has done nothing but attend daily national security briefings for a few short years. Hardly makes one an expert IMO. Hell,m I attended the same briefings when I worked Intel so I guess I am a national security expert too!

            he’s Never spent enough time in the Senate to be an expert on anything. Rubio stays in hiding, keeps a low profile, Rubio is given the foot notes and told what to say and videos non stop by Fox, same old same old.
            Christie nailed Rubio and he was Tongue tied.
            Rubio is a puppet and is repeating everything he says, may now be adding a few other sentences but that is it.
            Rubio was rehearsing using the foreign policy and Terrorist activity only to put forth the Democrat FEAR Mongering to get votes, like he knew what he was saying. Rubio is a progressive shill.

            the bodies are slowing falling with Rubio as well, Scalia was no accident. Rubio is no Republican or Conservative. if Rubo was a Republican don’t you thing the Dems would have destroy him by now, Bother Parties need rubio or their Corruption ends. their Greed for wealth and power ends with Trump or Cruz.
            that’s why the Debates are rigged, the Polls are rigged and this election is rigged.

          • rebapiper

            Herman Cain was forced out of his Presidential run. The news Media and Fox couldn’t get enough of the scandal. but they won’t expose Rubio, and they go after anyone that does. Christie who is not at a lose for words and very out spoken quickly left with out a speech. WHY? Christie was not short on cash, just before he left he was give a few million dollars by a donor. Christie tried, we do owe him a word of thanks, but his attack on Rubio went nowhere. like Christie said his well rehearsed lines is all that he is about.
            rubio was at a lose for words have nothing to say without Fox, the Progressives or the RNC feeding him the lines.

          • David Stovall

            The Supreme Court in Elk vs Wilkins : ” being born in the US is not sufficient for citizenship.” Plus there are two requirements, not one. 1. born in the USA & 2. subject to the jurisdiction of the USA which excludes foreigners,,, from the Supreme Court in Slaughterhouse.

          • David Stovall

            True, the only question after that I see is that there may be some loophole in the special status of Cuban immigrants. If not, then Rubio was born a Cuban, not with US American blood.

          • dennis w

            no… Rubio may be ‘native born’ but he is not ‘NATURAL BORN’…his parents were not yet ‘naturalized’ as
            AMERICAN citizens when he was born……

          • Gary S

            And, apparently, neither have you! 14th Amendment:”All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
            All persons born in the U.S. are citizens. The same citizenship as naturalized. So if ‘born’ and ‘naturalized’ have the same citizenship, then ‘naturalized citizens’ are natural born citizens, according to the Congressional Research Service.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            Incorrect on several issues. Naturalization is what an immigrant goes through to become a citizen. Native born is born on US soil. Natural born is born on US soil to two US citizen parents, period. This is where obama is not legal to be POTUS. Thanks to Pelosi and company, we got him, he was not properly vetted.

            OK knucklehead. Can you read? I’m unsure at this point to what degree your comprehension reaches. So as part of your online education I provide (spoonfeed) the following excerpt explaining what I have been saying repeatedly without any intelligent report;

            The Congressional Research Service concluded in 2011:

            “The weight of legal and historical authority indicates that the term ‘natural born’ citizen would mean a person who is entitled to U.S. citizenship ‘by birth’ or ‘at birth,’ either by being born ‘in’ the United States and under its jurisdiction, even those born to alien parents; by being born abroad to U.S. citizen-parents; or by being born in other situations meeting legal requirements for U.S. citizenship ‘at birth.'”

            The predominant legal scholarship holds that the term natural born citizen applies, quite simply, to anyone who is a U.S. citizen at birth, or by birth, and does not have to go through the naturalization process. The child of parents who are U.S. citizens, regardless of whether he or she is born abroad, fits into the category under most modern interpretations.

            I await your summary what this says to you.

          • Calvin P Border

            The Congressional Research Service is subject to political influences. The fact of the matter is that the Founders of the USA held that “natural born citizen” meant born IN the country to two citizen parents. The WHY is the key here. They wanted to minimize FOREIGN INFLUENCES. If you are a dual citizen until May 2014 (hello Ted Cruz), that is an obvious violation is the intent of the Founders. If neither of your parents were citizens (hello Marco Rubio), that’s a foreign influence.

          • Mister Vice

            Do you have source for your view? You cast doubt upon the Congressional Research Service (which is not as influenced as you imply) yet you give no source for your (researched?) opinion. Sorry Calvin but you’ll need to do better to win this argument. If you want ti use the “foreign influence” argument, you must thoroughly research the reasoning the Founding Fathers had for stating such a thing. The environment of the 1780s in America is nowhere close to what we have today. Nearly EVERYONE including you and I, have ancestry from another nation(s). THAT is a foreign influence as well. Can I trust you Calvin?

            I disagree about that part ” even if born to alien parents”. I am in the company of both authors of the 14th, and the Supreme Court in both Elk vs Wilkins ” being born in the US is not sufficient for citizenship” and in Slaughterhouse ” the phrase ‘ subject to the jurisdiction’ was intended to exclude____ . citizens or subjects of foreign states — “

          • richbach

            So I guess now The Congressional Research Service trumps the United States Supreme Court ruling in Minor vs Happerasett. That ruling actually states that in order to be a natural born citizen of the United States, both parents must be U.S. citizens.

          • rebapiper

            even if the are Naturalized he can’t run. He must be born to a Natural Born American Citizen. he was not. both parents were not Americans,

          • Gary S

            The parents must be citizens. Not natural born citizens. Although they could be natural born, naturalized or born from parents that were here when they were born. But BOTH parents must be citizens.

          • David Stovall

            Anchor babies are not citizens, that big lie has taken root and will kill our country. See Supreme Court in Elk vs Wilkins, ” being born in the US is not sufficient for citizenship” There are two requirements , not just one.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            There are 3 different levels of citizenship. Native born – born here, may be anchor baby; naturalized citizen – what a qualified immigrant may become; and Natural born citizen is born on US soil to two US citizen parents, period. US military bases and US Embassies also qualify as US soil. An anchor baby may be any mom that goes into labor on US soil, same as the baby tourism business in California, mostly to wealthy Chinese. If we accept anchor babies as full citizens, we are opening up our country to lots of future problems. They may be born here, leave, live in other countries, then come back and become the leaders of our country, according to your reasoning. Most/many immigrants parents do not speak English in the home, therefore, do not watch the news, or read newspapers; or read our history, they do not know our traditions, history, customs, or Constitution. Think about it, does this not concern you? It certainly does me. John Jay wrote Geo Washington regarding this matter and they agreed that the office of POTUS and VP were to be held to a higher level of citizenship than any other office. Read http:// cdrkerchner.wordpress.com and Vattell’s Law of Nations for more information.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            3 classes of citizenship, Native born – born on US soil; Naturalized – how immigrants get US citizenship; Natural born citizen is born on US soil to two US citizen parents. US military bases and US Embassies also qualify as US soil.

        • David Stovall

          The Court said Minor was a citizen because she fulfilled both requirements born in USA and born to citizen parents. That is just the same thing the 14th says, and explained by the principal author of the 14th that if born to foreigners the second requirement is not met. Rubio’s parents were foreigners at his birth and that may be a problem.

        • richbach

          Well Done JACK3889. I see you did your homework on this issue.

          but Rubio was NOT born to an American Citizen.
          their have been Amendments on the constitution because of our Military personnel over seas. they had to allow for them and their families.
          McCain fall under that provision.
          which also brings about an American being born our of the country by and American Citizen also fall under the same rule as McCain. that is where Ted Cruz comes in.
          Cruz had one Natural Born American Citizen for a parent. as long as Cruz had an American parent that makes him an America as well and he is entitled to run.
          Rubio can Not become President.

          • rebapiper

            I must say this. If Rubio was not part of the Progressive movement, the Dems. The Democrats would be all over him like fles to you know what.
            The Democrat party and the RNC Need Rubio in office, they must stop Trump and Cruz bother Candidates will go after the Corrupt Establishment. As Cruz calls them the DC CARTEL. which anger them and they hate him for it. That is way everyone is coming out in support of Rubio. they thing they can control him once in the WH. but they can’t because Rubio is support by the the left and Rubio wants open boarders, ctitizen for all illegals including gang members and their families as weill, Rubo spoke in Spanish to the illegals and immigrants tell them but Rubios has a different Story in English.
            Gowdy& Rubio want the ENLIST ACT, that’s the Fast Track to citizenship by way of our military. Gowdy not what you thing his is. He’s a con man like rubio.
            Check Gowdys record. Gowdy waited till after the S Carolina vote before he endorsed Rubio, if he had did it before Rubio would never have gotten a vote. Haley the same, Haley endorsing Rubio is no different the Al Sharpton endorsing Rubio.dd
            in Nevada, Americans vs Rubio the illegals, America won. done’t matter if you like Trump or Cruz, America vs Rubio,the RNC,Fox, Reids money machine and the illegals. Americas won.

            Rubio couldn’t get out of town fast enough. in fear he would have been exposed of his corruption. the press would have laughed in his face with his defeat after then American people in Nevada came out and voted against him and the illegals.
            Rubio spent a lot of time hiding out in Nevada wit the illegals and he still lost.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            No, one parent, in Cruz case, is not enough. He was born in Calgary in December 1970, Mom was born in the US, but according to online info, she was on Canadian voting rolls in 1972, so, had she become a Canadian citizen? When? Dad was Cuban, and Canada did not have dual ciiizenship until 1977, and, parents had to go to US consultant and request US citizenship, according to online info. Cruz did not give up his Canadian citizenship until 2014. So, Cruz could have been a Cuban citizen, Canadian, or ? US. Divided loyalities was a concern of the founding fathers. Natural born is born on US soil to two US citizen parents. US military bases and US Embassies also qualify as US soil. The office of POTUS and VP were to be held to a higher level of citizenship than any other office.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            McCain qualified due to dad being stationed on a US military base in Panama at the time of his birth, and both parents were US citizens. Bama, born in the UK colony of Kenya to a UK citizen dad, international law at the time said child got citizenship of father. Mom, Ann Dunham, ,was 18, law at the time said parent had to be 19 to give child parents citizenship, Ann was 18. Obama’s Kenyan bc and registration of birth are available online. Have read that mom went into labor on the beach in Mombasa, Kenya. Also, he was adopted by Lolo Soetoro at age 5 or 6 years of age, making him an Indonesian citizen. HIS Catholic school registration online states name as Barry Soetoro, citizenship as Indonesian, religion as Islam. The white pages, not the recent green one, it is full of errors and misinformation.

          • cvh3912@yahoo.com

            No, Cruz was born in Calgary in December 1970, to mom, born in US. But, online info says mom on Canadian voter roll in 1972, so did she become a Canadian citizen? If so, when? Dad was Cuban, international law says child follows citizenship of father, so, was he born Canadian, Cuban, or US citizen? This must be figured out correctly. Cruz father did not become a US citizen until not many years ago. Info onine states Canada did not have dual ciiizenship in 1970, did not have until 1977. How does this figure in? Cruz should have started figuring this out about 5th grade, when starting to study history. As he was a Constitutional scholar, cannot figure out why he is running. They both need to step aside and support Trump, our best choice to straighten out the mess we are in now.

          • rebapiper

            Cruz being born to an American citizen make him an American. if the parents choose to live in another country doesn’t take away from his citizenship parents must keep their citizenship by entering back into this county and can leave again. Cruz still has the option of coming into American and picking up his citizenship, he would have to denounce his citizenship and not enter backing into the country as called for.

          QUESTION: How many of our Founding Fathers were really “natural born”? Were they not all English “citizens” as Loyalists or Whigs?? John Adams certainly was an Englishman. DID that include Native Americans and Blacks? From what point do they determine who was Natural Born? Our first 5 POTUS??? Now it gets really sticky…….I understand NOT ALL STATES ratified our Constitution, even though they had their own State Constitutions. Correct me if I’m wrong, PLEASE!

          • Mister Vice

            No Sherry, John Adams, the first vice president and the second president was born in Quincy, Mass.in 1735. Apparently a natural born citizen at the point the nation was formed.

          • GGH44

            Mister Vice, I mostly agree with your posts, but you are slightly mistaken in this one. The United States did not exist in 1735, so neither J. Adams nor either of his parents was a citizen OF THE US. Therefore, he could not have been a NBC, by any of the definitions being discussed here. Adams became a citizen at the time of the adoption of the Articles of Confederation and confirmed at the time the Constitution was fully ratified (1789).

          • Calvin P Border

            So you are another person who hasn’t done your homework. There is an exception clause IN the document for those who were citizens at the time the Constitution was ratified.

      • Marci Gold

        In the constitution, it does not say that

      • Robert Trebes

        (Oct. 18, 2009) — The Post & Email has in several articles mentioned that the Supreme Court of the United States has given the definition of what a “natural born citizen” is. Since being a natural born citizen is an objective qualification and requirement of office for the U.S. President, it is important for all U.S. Citizens to understand what this term means.
        Let’s cut through all the opinion and speculation, all the “he says”, “she says”, fluff, and go right to the irrefutable, constitutional authority on all terms and phrases mentioned in the U.S. Constitution: the Supreme Court of the United States.
        First, let me note that there are 4 such cases which speak of the notion of “natural born citizenship”.
        Each of these cases will cite or apply the definition of this term, as given in a book entitled, The Law of Nations, written by Emmerich de Vattel, a Swiss-German philosopher of law. In that book, the following definition of a “natural born citizen” appears, in Book I, Chapter 19, § 212, of the English translation of 1797 (p. 110):
        § 212. Citizens and natives.
        The citizens are the members of the civil society: bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. . . .
        The French original of 1757, on that same passage read thus:
        Les naturels, ou indigenes, sont ceux qui sont nes dans le pays de parents citoyens, . . .
        The terms “natives” and “natural born citizens” are obviously English terms; used to render the idea convyed by the French phrase “les naturels, ou indigenes”: but both refered to the same category of citizen: one born in the country, of parents who were citizens of that country.
        In the political philosophy of Vattel, the term “naturels” refers to citizens who are such by the Law of Nature, that is by the natural cirumstances of their birth — which they did not choose; the term “indigenes” is from the Latin, indigenes, which like the English, “indigenous”, means “begotten from within” (inde-genes), as in the phrase “the indigenous natives are the peoples who have been born and lived there for generations.” Hence the meaning the the term, “natural born citizen”, or “naturels ou indigenes” is the same: born in the country of two parents who are citizens of that country.
        Vattel did not invent the notion “natural born citizen”; he was merely applying the Law of Nature to questions of citizenship. In fact the term first appears in a letter of the future Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, to George Washington during the Constitutional Convention, where the Framers were consulting 3 copies Vattel’s book to complete their work (according to the testimony of Benjamin Franklin).
        Let take a brief look, now, at each case. For each case I include the link to the full text of the ruling.
        The Venus, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 253 (1814)
        The first was decided in A.D. 1814, at the beginning of the republic, by men who were intimately associated with the American Revolution. In that year the following men sat on the Supreme Court:
        Bushrod Washington, (b. June 5, 1762 — d. Nov. 26, 1829), served Feb. 4, 1799 til Nov. 26, 1829.
        John Marshall (b. Sept. 24, 1755 — d. July 6, 1835), served Feb. 4, 1891 til July 6, 1835.
        William Johnson (b. Dec. 27, 1771 — d. Aug. 4, 1834), served May 7, 1804, til Aug. 4, 1834.
        Henry Brockholst Livingston (b. Nov. 25, 1757 — d. Mar. 18, 1823), served Jan. 20, 1807 til March 18, 1823
        Thomas Todd (b. Jan. 23, 1765 — d. Feb. 7, 1826), served May 4, 1807 til Feb. 7, 1826.
        Gabriel Duvall (b. Dec. 6, 1752 — d. Mar. 6, 1844), served Nov. 23, 1811 til Jany 14, 1835.
        Joseph Story (b. Sept. 18, 1779 — d. Sept. 10, 1845), served Feb. 3, 1812 til Sept. 10, 1845
        Nearly all these men either participated in the American Revolution, or their fathers did. Joseph Story’s father took part in the original Boston Tea Party. Thomas Todd served 6 months in the army against the British; and participated in 5 Constitutional Conventions from 1784-1792. During the Revolutionary War, Henry Brockholst Livingston was a Lieutenant Colonel in the New York Line and an aide-de-camp to General Benedict Arnold, before the latter’s defection to the British. William Johnson’s father, mother, and elder brother were revolutionaries, who served as statesman, rebel, or nurse/assistant to the line troops, respectively. John Marshall was First Lieutenant of the Culpeper Minutement of Virginia, and then Lieutenant in the Eleventh Virginian Continental Regiment, and a personal friend of General George Washington; and debated for ratification of the U.S. Constitution by the Virginian General Assembly. Bushrod Washington was George Washington’s nephew and heir.
        Being witnesses and heirs of the Revolution, they understood what the Framers of the Constitution had intended.
        The Venus case regarded the question whether the cargo of a merchantman, named the Venus, belonging to an American citizen, and being shipped from British territory to America during the War of 1812, could be seized and taken as a prize by an American privateer. But what the case said about citizenship, is what matters here.
        WHAT THE VENUS CASE SAYS ON CITIZENSHIP
        In the Venus Case, Justice Livingston, who wrote the unanimous decision, quoted the entire §212nd paragraph from the French edition, using his own English, on p. 12 of the ruling:
        Vattel, who, though not very full to this point, is more explicit and more satisfactory on it than any other whose work has fallen into my hands, says:
        “The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives or indigenes are those born in the country of parents who are citizens. Society not being able to subsist and to perpetuate itself but by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights.
        “The inhabitants, as distinguished from citizens, are strangers who are permitted to settle and stay in the country. Bound by their residence to the society, they are subject to the laws of the state while they reside there, and they are obliged to defend it…
        Shanks v. Dupont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830)
        In 16 years later the Supreme Court heard the case regarding the dispute over the inheritance received by two daughters of an American colonist, from South Carolina; one of whom went to England and remained a British subject, the other of whom remained in South Carolina and became an American citizen. At the beginning of the case, Justice Story, who gave the ruling, does not cite Vattel per se, but cites the principle of citizenship enshrined in his definition of a “natural born citizen”:
        Ann Scott was born in South Carolina before the American revolution, and her father adhered to the American cause and remained and was at his death a citizen of South Carolina. There is no dispute that his daughter Ann, at the time of the Revolution and afterwards, remained in South Carolina until December, 1782. Whether she was of age during this time does not appear. If she was, then her birth and residence might be deemed to constitute her by election a citizen of South Carolina. If she was not of age, then she might well be deemed under the circumstances of this case to hold the citizenship of her father, for children born in a country, continuing while under age in the family of the father, partake of his national character as a citizen of that country. Her citizenship, then, being prima facie established, and indeed this is admitted in the pleadings, has it ever been lost, or was it lost before the death of her father, so that the estate in question was, upon the descent cast, incapable of vesting in her? Upon the facts stated, it appears to us that it was not lost and that she was capable of taking it at the time of the descent cast.
        Minor v. Happersett , 88 U.S. 162 (1875)
        This case concerned Mrs. Happersett, an original suffragette, who in virtue of the 14th Amendment attempted to register to vote in the State of Missouri, and was refused because she was not a man. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in that year, wrote the majority opinion, in which he stated:
        The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents.
        UPDATE: May 25, 2012
        In your above article, which is very good, there is one error that you may wish to correct. In the Minor v. Happersett case, you refer to Mrs.Happersett as though she was the plaintiff. This is incorrect. The plaintiff was Virginia Minor. Happersett was the Registrar of Voters. I would appreciate your acknowledgment of my email. Thank you. Bruce O. Mann Attorney at Law 26875 Calle Hermosa, Ste. 1Capistrano Beach, CA 92624
        United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)
        In this case, Wong Kim Ark, the son of 2 resident Chinese aliens, claimed U.S. Citizenship and was vindicated by the court on the basis of the 14th Amendment. In this case the Justice Gray gave the opinion of the court. On p. 168-9 of the record, He cites approvingly the decision in Minor vs. Happersett:
        At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children, born in a country of parents who were its citizens, became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.
        On the basis of the 14th Amendment, however, the majority opinion coined a new definition for “native citizen”, as anyone who was born in the U.S.A., under the jurisdiction of the United States. The Court gave a novel interpretation to jurisdiction, and thus extended citizenship to all born in the country (excepting those born of ambassadors and foreign armies etc.); but it did not extend the meaning of the term “natural born citizen.”

        Read http:// cdrkerchner.wordpress.com and Vattell’s Law of Nations. Vattell’s Law of Nations was considered a valid reference during the founding of the nation. Aldo, reference the Constitution, requirements to be POTUS and VP. Last time I tried to pull this up, I could not locate previous referenced pages??

      THE Constitution says a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN ONLY Cruz was born from a neturalized born American mother THINK HARD ON THIS

    • Greg

      John are you serious? Your just joking right? Do some research, on your own. Read the constitution !! Now you might interpret one way, but look at it from all sides!! Then you will come to your senses!! Of course Cruz is ELIGABLE his mom is a citizen!

      • John S. Zimmer

        But his Daddy isn’t. By the way, his Mom voted in the Canadian elections… Canada at that time did not allow dual citizenship. And, No. I’m am not joking. And, I have researched this issue. Have you?

        • Greg

          John nothing you so eloquently stated has know cause or affect on whether mr Cruz is eligible to run for president. Regardless if she voted in a Mexican election or whether Canada offered dual citizenship. Your just throwing meaningless issues out there that have nothing to do with the issue. Good try though.

          • Sherry

            Like the old saying goes, “That Sh-t wont stick!”…….

          • Sandy129

            Has it not occurred to you that the dems will take issue and if Cruz, who is not eligible for the Office of President, were to be elected she may win by default? To vote another illegal occupant in the WH could be a way bigger mess than any of us know.

          • Sherry

            TRUE…….BUT he is NOT illegal and is fully eligible for the run!

          • danstewart

            That is yet to be determined.

          • Sherry

            Ted is as eligible as much as Trump is! They BOTH had one foreign parent until after the child was born!

          • danstewart

            Trumps older brother, yes. His mother acquired citizenship before Donald was born.

          • Sandy129

            Sherry, If you would take the time to read Dissertation on becoming a US Citizen by David Ramsay you would know you are defending an untruth. There are many distortions of the requirement for President and most all of them wrong. Don’t you want to know for yourself? I did, I didn’t want to support a lie.

          • Cookie Vranish

            It was a good try. I’m convinced.

          • leewacker

            No, it means a lot! Mostly, whether or not Ted can run.

          • Greg

            Well ms lee wackier, I understand that you need something to hang onto. Find something worthwhile! It’s absurd that you would follow a tool like trump. The guy is a total joke! And it’s a non issue!!

        • GGH44

          If you had actually “researched this issue” you would know that his Mom did NOT vote in any Canadian election. And the issue of Canada not allowing dual citizenship is totally irrelevant. (Cruz has renounced any Canadian citizenship he may have had, anyway.)

      • leewacker

        In the question about Cruz, one of my mom’s cousins married a man from Nova Scotia–she was from Clarkdale, Arizona. They moved to Nova Scotia where they lived for a good five to ten years. The cousin had to APPLY to return to her own country, as she had voted and lived in Nova Scotia for those many years! If Mrs.Cruz did the same, although I am not sure how long the Cruzes lived there, she would HAVE to go through the same hoops mom’s cousin did to get back her American citizenship. Believe me, THAT would color Ted’s eligibility, too!

        • Greg

          Wow this is fun, this is like the crazy hour!! You fellows need to put your computer time to better use!! It’s a mute point , Ted Is running for prez , now I doubt he wins but if he did there would be nothing you or anyone could do about it. Well maybe if Obama appoints a supreme before election! And if that happens fellows, ladies we are all done!! End of your constitution!! Over history!!

    • Greg

      John that’s your interpretation correct? There are many ways to interpret many writings. Is Donald ELIGABLE ?

      • Sherry

        NO! Corrupt criminals are exempt! Just like Hillary!

    • Kenneth Van Antwerp

      I thought there was doubt about Obummer’s eligibility to be President because of his being born in Kenya.

      • william g munson

        And Obama father never was a USA citizen period in eligibal now

        • Artie

          And theres also a question if Stanley Anne Dunham was obamas biological mother.So,its still possible that obamas not legal to be president.You wanna bet he does’nt wanna take the test to prove it.I’ll bet all the money in the world obama wont take the test.

      • danstewart

        Also, his father not a US citizen.

      • Sandy129

        It goes further than that, his father was a British subject, not a citizen of America.

    • Artie

      Its only 1 parent.Read it again or read it the 1st time.

      • danstewart

        Natural born citizen requires BOTH parents be US citizens. I guess now you’ll come back with the standard dumb “prove it”.

    • Penny Cooper

      They are eligible. As far as that goes Trump himself has refugee parents were not citizens when his brother was born. So check on the status of his brother.
      Ted Cruz is a upstanding Attorney who knows he is certainly a citizen and can run for President. absolutely no doubt.
      So Trump is flapping his gums to cause trouble as usual. People need to not listen to Trump because he talks without checking the facts FIRST.

      • danstewart

        Trumps brother is not running.

        • Penny Cooper

          But Donald Trump dislikes illegal immigrants in America. Will he toss his family members who are not citizens?

    • Sandy129

      You are absolutely right!! I had heard that said and went about to discover for myself the truth and neither Cruz or Rubio are eligible for the Office of the Presidency. My proof was found in David Ramsay’s writing of “Dissertation of the Manner of Acquiring the Character and Privileges of a Citizen of the United States.” David Ramsay, both a Founder and Continental Congress member wrote a very clear description of Natural Born and who is and who isn’t eligible for the Office of President. Every American should read it and learn how special being a Natural Born Citizen is and the privileges we have that others do not have and why that is.

          Everything was all hidden early on in his campaign and some of it beforehand so we wouldn’t know. However, there was still enough to find that many of us would never vote for him but not near enough then or even now. When people have to hide their past, something isn’t right.

            You are Very Uninformed :

            In his twenties, Cruz( Father) moved to New Orleans. In 1969, at his new oil company job, he met his second wife, Eleanor Elizabeth Darragh Wilson, a computer programmer from Delaware. Cruz and Wilson lived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where their only child, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, was born While in Calgary, the couple owned a seismic-data processing firm for oil drillers.

            After Cruz( Father) graduated from the University of Texas in 1961, he was granted political asylum in the United States following the expiration of his student visa. He became a Canadian citizen during his residence in Canada, returning to the United States with his family in the mid-’70s. Eleanor and Rafael Cruz divorced in 1997. He renounced his Canadian citizenship and in 2005 became a naturalized U.S. citizen.

            Ted Cruz Cruz Born on December 22, 1970, in Calgary, Canada . In 2014, Cruz renounced his dual Canadian citizenship. This is the Catch : By renouncing his Dual Canadin Citizenship , Cruz was a Canadian Citizen from birth .

            THE RNC put Bush and Rubio out there and their full support for them. the donations going to the RNC will go to Rubio, stop any donations going to the RNC.
            Once Bush showed his hand and put Americans second he was finished, he wouldn’tback track and so he was his own worst enemy,
            Rubio tried it and quickly went into hiding and shut his mouth, Once the RNC saw their was no recovery for Bush the just Strung him along. They played Jeb Bush for a fool, using him to go after trump, When Bush should have gone after Rubio, but by the time he did it was too late and the RNC quickly got on his case and told him to Stop the attacks on Rubio, So Bush went after Trump again with their talking points. That was the finishing of Bush, He played in the the RNC Con game only to wipe him out and they could put their full support for Rubio. Rigging the debates,Rigging the poll numbers keep Rubio in hiding, only allowing his well rehearsed sound bite, keeping him out of the line of fire, so he won’t be attacked by others and the Press.

            My research says neither of Rubio’s parents were US citizens until several years after his birth. Natural born citizen is born on US soil to two US citizen parents, period. US military bases and US Embassies also qualify as US soil. Cruz mom was born in US, but info online claims she is on voting roll in Canada in 1972?? Dad was Cuban, so, could he be Canadian, Cuban, or US citizen? Info onine says Canada did not have dual ciiizenship in 1970, when Cruz was born, did not have dual ciiizenship until 1977. Did he get US citizenship when he came to US? Our founding fathers were concerned about divided loyalities, that is why the office of POTUS and VP were to be held to a higher level of citizenship than any other office. Any other office can be held by a citizen, not required to be Natural born citizen. Native born, born here; naturalized citizen, immigrant who fulfills requirements may become; Natural born citizen, born on US soil to two US citizen parents. This is not rocket science!

            Cruz’s father was not a citizen of the USA when Cruz was born.. He only obtained a Green Card.. To my knowledge that does not qualify Cruz’s father to be a USA citizen.. According to the Constitution among other stipulations, both parents must be citizens of the USA in order for their offsprings to be considered a Natural Born Citizen of the USA.

            Absolutely right!

            Born in the U.S.A. from Two U.S. Citizen Parents .

            After Cruz( Father) graduated from the University of Texas in 1961, he was granted political asylum in the United States following the expiration of his student visa. He became a Canadian citizen during his residence in Canada, returning to the United States with his family in the mid-’70s. Eleanor and Rafael Cruz divorced in 1997. He renounced his Canadian citizenship and in 2005 became a naturalized U.S. citizen.

            Ted Cruz Cruz Born on December 22, 1970, in Calgary, Canada . In 2014, Cruz renounced his dual Canadian citizenship. This is the Catch : By renouncing his Dual Canadin Citizenship , Cruz was a Canadian Citizen from birth .

            No its not rocket science and the tragedy is that way too many Americans do not know their own history. David Ramsay was both a Founder and a Continental Congress Member and the only difference in what you said is that he said two Natural Born American Citizens can have a child anyplace in the world and the child still be as they are, Natural Born. Divided loyalties is a big deal. Look at Obama. It would be the same conflict whether conscious or not with Cruz and Rubio which both according to our Constitution and David Ramsay’s Dissertation are not qualified. I lean more towards David Ramsay because he is extremely credible and his Dissertation is short and straight to the point on Citizenship. It’s also easy enough for anyone to understand. Cruz fails on the 14 year mandatory total allegiance to America before he could qualify for the Office of President as well are not Natural Born Citizens. They are citizens but not qualified for the special privileges of a Natural Born Citizen.

            In his twenties, Cruz( Father) moved to New Orleans. In 1969, at his new oil company job, he met his second wife, Eleanor Elizabeth Darragh Wilson, a computer programmer from Delaware. Cruz and Wilson lived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where their only child, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, was born While in Calgary, the couple owned a seismic-data processing firm for oil drillers.

          ABERCROMBIE MADE SURE OF THAT! 3 people died to help cover up these horrendous mistakes! There should be a GOP investigation into Abercrombie’s activities and finances! Perhaps HIS life was threatened just like so many questionable deaths surrounding the “O” files and “HISTORY”! Americans have gotten so stupid and dull! What’s happened to the American will and integrity??

            Yes, you are an embarassment — very much so.

            You have an Internet connection.
            You could easily look up the valid facts.

            Like i said, the body count for Rubio has already started. Clinton had the Mafia behind him and the bodies just dropped one by one.
            Rubio has the illegals and gang members as well as the Progressive movement behind him. Just like Scalia, that was no accident.
            Rubio is NO Conservative, No Republican rubio is a Cuban Communist,Socialist, obamas relations with Cuba, Castro is NO Coincidence.
            Rubio have to obama, obama couldn’t have done it all alone. and now obama does for Rubio.
            Rubio lost Nevada, American vs. Rubio and the illegals in Nevada. Without the illegals and Harry Reids money machine Rubio would have no poll numbers.

            You need to look up the 1875 Supreme Court ruling in Minor vs Happersett. The court stated that to be a natural born citizen, both parents needed to be U.S. citizens.

        To become a citizen at birth, you must:

        Have been born in the United States or certain territories or outlying possessions of the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States;
        OR

        had a parent or parents who were citizens at the time of your birth (if you were born abroad) and meet other requirements

      These constitutional scholars are not inept. They assume because they say they are constitutional scholars nobody will challenge them. The bottom line is that they are simply liars!

      • dennis w

        and STUPID ………..

        • Mister Vice

          Read the Constitution, it is vague on this point so the so-called scholars will not commit one way or another. For that I give them credit.

      John you are right but the powers that be do not care about the Constitution the Bill of Rights nor the people that live in America.As you say this is how corrupted are government has become.

      • I Seigel

        The “powers that be”?? Oh, you mean the same “powers” that appointed Bush president?

        • Mister Vice

          Bush was elected not appointed. I do hope you can get better informed in current events and how our government (should) work.

          • I Seigel

            I do hope your memory improves, but the likelihood of that happening is very low.
            You might need to look up this fact: Before a recounting of Florida ballots finished, the Governor Jeb Bush-appointed Florida Secretary of State asked the Supreme Court to stop the recount. They did stop the process and declared Bush the winner in Florida. That gave him the electoral votes needed to win the presidency. Later, it was confirmed that Bush LOST in Florida, and if the Supreme Court hadn’t interfered with the process, his opponent would have won, thereby getting Florida’s electoral votes which would have given HIM the White House. The Supreme Court vote was 5-4, all the Republican-appointed judges forming the majority.

    • Mister Vice

      Wrong! I do not where you get your information but there are only two kinds of citizens. “Natural born” meaning born on US soil or born overseas to at least ONE American citizen. The other is “naturalized” whereas an immigrant gets the green card and goes through a specific and well documented process to become a citizen. As a military veteran,I can say your poorly researched definition would render hundreds of thousands of babies born overseas with servicemember parentage (one or both, no matter) are without a country.

      The birther discourse pushed by Trump is his goal to dissect the Republican party. He has supported liberal platforms for a long time as well as Democrat candidates proving his real loyalty. He has a faulty resume, IMO the one that counts much more than parentage, is his political past that was anything but conservative. It is beyond foolish to support him when his pedigree is lacking far more than Cruz or Rubio!

      • John S. Zimmer

        A “Citizen” and a “Natural Born Citizen” and a “Naturalized Citizen” are all different forms of citizenship. The Founding Fathers specifically and only, named Natural Born Citizens as being eligible for the Presidency and the Vice Presidency.

    • Eagle Scout Ken

      I agree! Now! how do we get the to step down or just have them go away?

      • John S. Zimmer

        It seems logical to me that those who are ineligible can step down or face incarceration and fines for accepting donations under false pretenses.

    • kibitzer3

      Just to clarify: The constitutional Framers were obviously, by considerable historical evidence, going by the definitive tome of the day on such subjects, E. de Vattel’s ‘The Law of Nations, Or Principles of Natural Law,’ in which he clarifies the definition of a NBC. Which is a person born in the country (or its jurisdictional equivalent) of citizen parents thereof (and particularly the father, from whom nationality descends, legalistically speaking). Thus, both the doctrine of jus sanguinis – law of the blood – and jus soli – law of the soil – apply. THAT makes it “case closed”.

    • cvh3912@yahoo.com

      Neither are eligible for POTUS or VP. Neither is Bobby Jindal or rising star, SC Gov Nicki Haley eligible to be POTUS or VP. Rubio, Jindal, and Haley are all 3 anchor babies, not one parent was a US citizen when they were born. We must get back to the Constitution. Obama is not eligible for several reasons. Thanks Pelosi and company. Obama’s dad was never a citizen, he was married to a wom a n in the colony of Kenya, mom was not old enough to confer her citizenship to him (law was 19 at the time, shecwasv18),

      • rebapiper

        thank you for this information. makes it some what clearer. One of his class mates said he never attended classes instead he went to Communist meetings that they held, teachings on how to bring down this country. his fraudulent visas papers got him a free ride into college. he belongs in jail for that alone.

      • John S. Zimmer

        It is very refreshing to hear from someone who has done his homework and can succinctly report on the issues with honesty. Thank you for your contribution to the discussion.

  • reggie

    I’ve been questioning that right along. His parents immigrated in 1956, he was born in 1971, his parents became citizens in 1975 or 1976. They were NOT citizens, they were legal residents. His parents did not ‘escape’ Cuba. Castro took over in 1959. If he is eligible, is every anchor baby eligible?

    • peeweetanner@yahoo.com

      Trump was born 1946 his mother wasnt naturalized a us citizen until 1948 she is from SCOTLAND THINK ABOUT THIS another anchor baby

      • reggie

        It never stops. Soros wants killery, so she’ll come riding in on her pack of lies to save the day for one world order.
