Will his Birther issue derail Ted Cruz’s presidential dream? | by Tony Castro | @ VOXXI.com

Will his “Birther” issue derail Ted Cruz’s presidential dream? | by Tony Castro | @ VOXXI.com

At VOXXI.com:  ” … And as Obama could likely tell Cruz, it’s an issue that doesn’t go away, even if you’re almost halfway through your second term in the White House. When asked about whether he’s eligible, Cruz’s stock answer of late has been:

“I was born in Calgary. My father is Cuban. My mother is American. My mother was a U.S. citizen by birth, so under U.S. law, I was an American citizen by birth. Those are the facts.”

Cruz maintains that he is an American citizen by birth, fulfilling the requirement of Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution that a person needs to be a “natural born citizen” to be president.

But just as Obama is still hammered by some critics about his birther issue, so too do questions continue to be raised in some quarters about Cruz’s constitutional standing to become president because of his birth in Canada. … ”  Read the rest of the article here:  http://voxxi.com/2014/08/31/birthers-ted-cruz/

Comment about this by CDR Kerchner (Ret):  A message to Senator Cruz from me and basic logic:  Being declared by man-made positive law that one is a Citizen at Birth is not sufficient.  Natural born Citizens are a subset of “born Citizens (citizens at birth)” but not all “born Citizens (citizens at birth)” are “natural born Citizens” at birth. Natural born Citizens are created by “natural law” and the laws of nature, not man-made “positive law”.

This important constitutional issue will not go away not matter how much both major political parties wish to make it go away so they can run politically sexy candidates of their choice without regard for the eligibility clause as to who is legally and constitutionally eligible. Watch as  Jim Rubens, U.S. Senate candidate in NH, does a polite verbal tap dance of sorts when asked about what “natural born Citizen of the United States” means to constitutional standards and its impact on several “rising star” potential Republican Party candidates for Pres and CinC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oIs7UPYsI0

Redux for Members of Congress: The Three Legged Stool Test & Analogy for “natural born Citizen of the United States” to Constitutional Standards as It Applies to Who Can be President and Commander-in-Chief of Our Millitary | by CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret), ProtectOurLiberty.org

A “natural born Citizen” of the United States is a child born with Sole Allegiance and Unity of Citizenship at birth to one and only one country — the USA, i.e., a child born in the USA of two (2) U.S. Citizens. The parents can be Citizens by Birth or they can be Citizens by Naturalization after immigrating to the USA. But to create a “natural born Citizen” of the United States both parents must be Citizens at the time the child is born in the USA. See this legal reference book used by the founders and framers of our Constitution: Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law, Vol.1 Chapter 19 Section 212, Emer de Vattel, 1758-1797.  The overwhelming majority (probably 85%+) of citizens in the United States are natural born Citizens. This clause was added for future presidents as a national security clause. It is from the group of natural born Citizens that our founders prescribed in the presidential eligibility clause in Clause 5, Section 1 of Article II of the U.S. Constitution that we shall choose a President and Commander in Chief of our military as a strong check against foreign influence via birth allegiances on the person in that singular and most powerful office. One needs all three citizenship legs to be a natural born Citizen and have sole allegiance and claim on you at birth to one and only one country — the United States: 1. Born in the USA. 2. Father must be a U.S. Citizen (born or naturalized). 3. Mother must be U.S. Citizen (born or naturalized). Like a three legged stool if you take away any of these three citizenship legs of the Article II constitutional intent and requirement to being a natural born Citizen, i.e., being born with unity of citizenship in and sole allegiance to the USA, the child is born with more than one country’s citizenship and claim of allegiance/citizenship on them at their birth and thus they are NOT a natural born Citizen of the United States.  And as in the analogy of a stool designed to stand on three legs and it is missing a leg, it falls down, likewise the person’s claim to natural born Citizenship fails if the person does not have all three citizenship legs required to be a natural born Citizen at the time of their birth. See the below Venn Diagram which logically and graphically shows how a natural born Citizen has the intersection and unity of all three Citizenship statuses at birth. Read this essay “ Of Trees and Plants” on basic logic which explains that being simply a “Citizen at Birth (CAB)” does not necessarily make oneself a “natural born Citizen (NBC)” at Birth. Natural born Citizens are overwhelmingly the largest subset of all American citizens. The location of birth being in the U.S. to a U.S. father and U.S. mother … all being U.S. Citizens at the time of birth is the only way one achieves natural born Citizenship status. Natural born Citizenship is gained by the laws of nature not by any man-made law or statute or even a constitutional amendment granting that status. Natural born Citizens need no act of man for their Citizenship was created by nature and nature’s Creator. Natural born Citizens of the United States have sole allegiance to one and only one country at birth … the United States. No foreign power or country can claim their allegiance under U.S. law or the Law of Nations. Over 85% of American citizens fit that requirement, i.e., born in the USA of two U.S. Citizen (born or naturalized) parents. Natural born citizens are the 3 Leaf Clovers of the American citizens, Not the 4 Leaf Clovers. It is from those 85% of American citizens that our founders and framers directed us via Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution that we shall choose our President and Commander-in-Chief, not a dual-citizen son of a foreign national and British Subject father who was never even an immigrant to this country, and said child being born a British subject himself via his foreign national father, as is the case with Obama’s birth status.
