The Flawed Ted Cruz Eligibility Decisions in Elliott v Cruz in PA and Williams v Cruz in NJ – A Blind Rubber-Stamping | Read the Analysis by Joseph DeMaio @ ThePostEmail.com

Joseph DeMaio writes:  ” … No sooner had your faithful servant submitted the prior post here analyzing the myriad anomalies of the January 11, 2016 Congressional Research Service Report R4209732 entitled “Qualifications [sic] for President and the ‘Natural Born’ Citizenship [sic] Eligibility Requirement” when the news broke that on March 31, 2016, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court had affirmed, in a per curiam decision, the March 10, 2016 Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania decision of Judge Dan Pellegrini in Carmon Elliott v. Ted Cruz, Docket No. 77 M.D. 2016 (hereinafter “Elliott”).

Further cluttering the scene, on April 12, 2016, news broke of the decision of Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ, a hearing officer and not an Art. III constitutional judge) Jeff F. Masin in Victor Williams v. Ted Cruz, New Jersey Office of Administrative Law Docket No. STE 5016-16 (hereinafter “Williams”).

The “short” version of the matter is that Judge Pellegrini (in the Pennsylvania Elliott case) and ALJ Masin (in the New Jersey Williams case) both opined that, because Senator Cruz was, in their opinion, a “citizen from birth” owing to the fact that his mother was, purportedly, a U.S. citizen when he was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada – a matter to be discussed hereafter – he was thus in Judge Pellegrini’s opinion and in ALJ Masin’s opinion a “natural born Citizen” eligible to the presidency.

Accordingly, Mr. Elliott’s and Mr. Williams’s attempts to have Senator Cruz’s name removed, respectively, from the Pennsylvania primary election and the New Jersey primary election ballots were denied. The Pennsylvania primary election is scheduled for April 26, 2016 and the New Jersey primary election is set for June 7, 2016.

And, adding insult to injury, it is now asserted in the Williams case the ALJ Masin told the petitioners at the beginning of the hearing that, although he had received the briefs in the case, he had not “looked at any of them …” and had not “read any of them.”  Recalling that a speeding locomotive with an unconscious engineer at the throttle is hard to stop, look for similar decisions upholding Senator Cruz’s purported constitutional eligibility from other states in the coming weeks and months. … ”

Breaking-Exclusive: Co-Author Neal Katyal of Harvard Law Review Forum (HLRF) Article on Cruz Eligibility Argued 1952 INA Law Make Persons “naturalized Citizens” but in the 2016 NHRF Article – Not So for Ted Cruz – Katyal Double Talking to America

Flores-Villar-Front-Page-SCOTUS-450x446Flores-Villar-p-31-450x437Breaking-Exclusive: Co-Author Neal Katyal of Harvard Law Review Forum Article on Ted Cruz eligibility argued in favor (and the U.S. Supreme Court Ruling agreed) of and for upholding the applicable 1952 U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA) in the 2010 SCOTUS case which established conditions for and said that persons born abroad to a sole U.S. Citizen parent in a status similar to Ted Cruz, whether the parent is a Father or a Mother, are at birth Statutory Citizens and Naturalized Citizens per the 1952 statutory immigration and naturalization law enacted by Congress.

Then in 2016 in the Harvard Law Review Forum, Neal Kaytal argued the opposite for a similar set of facts for a foreign-born person to one U.S. Citizen parent.  He argued that foreign-born Ted Cruz is NOT a “Naturalized Citizen” at birth per U.S. Statutory Law enacted by Congress but instead is a “natural born Citizen” at birth and thus since a “naturalized Citizen” cannot be President, that Ted Cruz is eligible. Katyal Double Talking to America.  What an ethically challenged and politically driven and conflicted attorney and person Neal Kaytal obviously is.

An open message to NJ LtGov Kim Guadagno from CDR Charles Kerchner (Retired) of ProtectOurLiberty.org:

I have read Admin Judge Masin’s decision and recommendation to you. It is very flawed in many areas including his improper citing or not citing important U.S. Supreme Court decisions about who are NATURALIZED Citizens (and Ted Cruz is one) created by U.S. Statutory laws, and the founding time frame history, intent, and understanding of the founders and framers in their use of the Natural Law term “natural born Citizen” in the presidential eligibility clause.  The judge blew off the writings of Emer de Vattel like he was some relative nobody and not well known the the founders and framers. Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton and many U.S. Supreme Court decisions in the first 100 years of this Constitutional Republic would strongly disagree with the casual and low credit given to the writings and influence of Vattel on the founders and framers in the justification for the revolution and the writing of the founding documents and their understanding of who is a Citizen of a nation and who is a “natural born Citizen”. Both modifiers in that term mean some very logical, special, and restrictive not inclusive things as to who can be President and Commander in Chief of our military.

The “natural born Citizen” term in our U.S. Constitution was put there for national security reasons as to who could be President and Commander in Chief of our military once the founding generation was gone.  The founders and framers had a “grandfather clause” in Article II Section 1 Clause exempting them from being a “natural born Citizen”.  But subsequent generations do not.  They knew the term meant a person with sole allegiance to the country at birth. Not just any sliver or partial allegiance such as being born a dual citizen or tri-citizen as Ted Cruz was. Ted was born with Canadian citizenship by soil, Cuban citizenship from his father, and U.S. citizenship via his mother if she had not at some point renounced that and became a Canadian citizen to register to vote up there, which she did. How is allowing a tri-citizen at birth to be eligible to be President and CinC a “strong check” against foreign influence in that office, as founders and framers John Jay and George Washington intended it to be. A natural born Citizen is one born with sole allegiance and singular citizenship to the USA and only the USA by being born in the USA to parents who are both citizens (born or naturalized citizen parents but citizens) when their child was born. See my white paper on this subject: https://www.scribd.com/…/The-Who-What-When-Where-Why-and-Ho… Also see: https://www.scribd.com/…/Euler-Logic-Diagram-Shows-Logical-… and https://www.scribd.com/…/Papers-Discussing-Natural-Born-Cit…

This question of eligibility MUST be addressed by the U.S. Supreme Court. Reject the recommendation decision by Judge Masin and do not allow the ineligible Ted Cruz to be remain on the NJ ballot for President. That, in addition to being the right originalist understanding and meaning defense of the Constitution and the “natural born Citizen” term, would also force this matter to the U.S. Supreme Court on an expedited basis since at that point two states, PA and NJ, would have ruled differently and SCOTUS would have to address the matter on the merits in an immediate and expedited basis.

Respectfully submitted,
