Cruz, I think, has shown his Canadian birth certificate. You know, the long form one not the short form that Obama put out there. And a real birth certificate not a fake, photoshopped one like Obama. I haven't seen any proof yet that Cruzs mother was a "natural born citizen" like a a birth certificate, but Cruz claims he's coming out with that "sometime soon."
That don't matter though because Canadian's children are "naturally born" American citizens from birth even if there is no proof either of their parents was born in this country.
The dims are pulling out the crazy libs to go after the one they REALLY FEAR....CRUZ!!!
But according to conservatives who support Cruz for president, it doesn't matter where you were born as long as you have just one American parent.....si since Obama had an American mom (like Ted Cruz), why do you care where Obama was born???
Some intellectual consistency please....Grayson is actually doing you a favor by exposing the hypocrisy early on - the question is whether conservatives will stiffen their neck
This is a stupid debate topic. Naturalization act of 1790 gives natural born citizen status to all born abroad of a US citizen parent. Case closed look it up
lets pretend backtogenesis is correct.....
Let's also assume the Constitution can be changed by a simple law (which it cant).
What backtogenisis is saying is that someone can be born in Iran to an Iranian mom and an american dad, Backtogenisis is saying that person can become president of the United States......It's so laughable.....
Hey Mind...or whatever other troll name you would like to be called since you change so often....
The Constitution gives Congress the ability to SET the LAW that governs Citizenship. When there is deemed to be a need for clarification on a section of the Constitution, Congress can do whatever is "necessary and proper" to clarify through law the information set down in the Constitution.
The Supreme Court is then set up to decide any challenges to the law that Congress set down to clarify the Constitution and then decide if that law is constitutional or not.
The President and the Executive Branch are then charged with enforcing and putting the law into effect.
THAT is how our government is set up. THAT is how things work in this country.
I know that MANY on here, especially the trolls like you, don't understand the ACTUAL way the Constitution is set up, even more so when they don't agree with how things are doing, but that is how it was meant to work.
That doesn't mean the process is perfect or can not be corrupted by certain people or even an entire branch of government - like we have now with Executive Branch and have under BOTH parties for nearly 25 years or the SCOTUS in several time periods of our history - but that is reality. The ULTIMATE authority was to lay with WE THE PEOPLE and our EDUCATED and INFORMED voting process to correct any corruption that did occur. We have been lacked for nearly 100 years, the next 10 will show whether we survive or not.
The Constitution gives Congress the authority to effectuate citizenship, and that is not a disputed contention. The Constitution also says a president /VP is to be a natural born citizen. Who authorizes anything to be natural born?
How were any citizens were naturally supposed to be born before Congress actually effectuated citizenship, such that a female citizen and a male citizen could exist to PRODUCE a natural born citizen?
If people like VRW were more informed and consistent in their support of the Constitution, they would understand that 'natural born' has more to do with the laws of God (or nature for the unbeliever)....Laws of God cannot be changed by the laws of man - well that is what the same conservatives say about gay marriage.
S0Y, Will you then explain in what legal manner Cruz is even an American citizen.
Ted Cruz does have a Canadian birth certificate. He was born there when his parents, both US citizens, were there on business. According to the State Department, that makes him a natural born citizen of the United States. The Congressman should familiarize himself with the Constitution and our federal laws. Of course laws mean little to progressive. Especially when it has to do with a Kenyan, born in Kenya to a Kenyan citizen father, who also said he was Kenyan on a college application, with a phony birth certificate. To bad that Honolulu registrar who could have identified it as phony died.
Ted Cruz’s father was a cuban citizen at his birth. You make it sound like they were temporarily in Canada but that is not the case as they both had established residency in Canada.
"Of course laws mean little to progressive. Especially when it has to do with a Kenyan, born in Kenya to a Kenyan citizen father, "
Apparently you are like a progressive because Ted Cruz is the Canadian version of a Kenyan Obama - with a Cuban father and born in Canada
S0Y, You sound as silly as some here who have and will never do any research on Valerie Jarrett, yet continually claim that she is Iranian. It doesn't matter that her African-American parents from Chicago were working on a medical project at the time in Iran, and that the family left the country when she was six years old. They still believe that she is beholden to the Shiites of Iran. You make about as much sense.
RJJinGadsden, you say i dont make any sense.....So what is it that you are confused about?
S0Y, I am not confused. I'm just curious as to why you have your head in the clouds.
BTW, I spotted your demand on this story. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/11/28/heres-everything-we-know-about-planned-parenthood-suspect/#comment-10245942
Okay, why don't you answer my question above about what kind of citizen Cruz is then? I've been doing research and keep running into dead ends that show only a natural born citizen or a naturalized citizen. If you know something that I don't and in particular a site that illustrates the law I am willing to give it a good read. I am now even more curious. Oh yeah, that response a while back from WebWithDeb about a 'statute citizen' didn't get me anywhere except the site with the laws that I found while looking up 'statute citizen'. One section illustrated that a child born overseas to even one American parent is a natural born citizen. I will not except your usual chest thumping junk on the subject though.
Will you 'accept' a little friendly advice, RJJ?
Breathe. Clear your mind. Think logically.
The Constitution provides for two methodologies for citizenship:
1). natural born citizenship;
2). citizenship effectuated by Congress.
I believe the hang up are having is to equate 'naturalization' -- or the making of a citizen by man -- with the legal procedure called, "Naturalization".
If you have discovered a statute which outlines the circumstances of Ted Cruz' birth being considered a citizen, THEN YOU HAVE SEEN that he was made a citizen according to man made law. One is either one OR the other; one is either a natural born citizen OR one has had their citizenship spoken into being by law.
Also what I see confusing a lot of people here is the language of that statute. No where does it state that the people born under those sets of circumstances ARE natural born citizens. Rather, what the law was attempting to do was streamline citizens into being without having to go through the "Naturalization" procedure. It is not logical to look at these laws without considering the confluence of the age and time they were written in. It is not congruent to have natural born citizens as an eligibility requirement if no provisions have been effectuated to account for citizenship, period. A natural born citizen cannot be born to parents who were not citizens.

It is not black Friday ruining Thanksgiving. It is extending black Friday to Thursday that is ruining the holiday. Thanksgiving and Christmas are the two holidays that should be celebrated with friends and family. The corporate greed of retailers have destroyed the special meaning of the holidays.
One letter above mentioned a woman that had to be at Walmart at 3:00 to prepare for the store opening. This can ruin the holiday for her and others in her position since they cannot enjoy dinner with the family. Things keep going this way in a few years many retail workers will have their turkey for breakfast.

If they are really concerned about their children they would teach them to be respectful of all other people and to obey the law. Then there would be no trouble between the police and blacks.
So that's why Officer Van Dyke shot Mcdonald 16 times? To encourage respect and civility in the Black community. Yeah, that's an awesome excuse...not.
You are right mike. Certainly from what I have seen in the video, the shooting was not justified. But the truth is the shooting would not have occurred if the perp simply cooperated. This is the aspect that blacks just want to ignore. Violent confrontations between anybody and the police would be virtually non-existent is the perp simply cooperated. How simple is that?
Political_Cynic, the little thug should not have gotten high on PCP, armed himself with a knife, and then broken into taxpaying citizens' automobiles. Oh, and then run from police. I'm not saying he should have been shot 16 times, but his choices - not the police - were the sole cause of his death.

We should stop putting their civilians at risk only if and when the stop putting our civilians at risk.

Why do we need rules of engagement? Follow the Geneva Convention, but only if the enemy does also. Other than that tell the armed forces what you want done and release them.
Rules of engagement caused us to lose Vietnam and other conflicts. Ones we could have and should gave won.
This is NOT a war, it's a play of politics. That's why the US is losing face and all the wars since WWII. Back in 1991, Schwartzkof would have ended the Iraq war for good, being just a mile from Baghdad, but politics stepped in and stopped him. Since then, how many American soldiers died needlessly? In a military war, there are NO rules of engagement if you'rs there to WIN the war.
EXACTLY! We got so many problems in our own damn country, makes me sick spending all this money on these crap hole nations.
Because, to a Politician (both sides) a Veteran is a disposable commodity, to be forgotten and thrown away when no longer convenient.
Because 0bama and most of the other Demoncraps hate the veterans.
Because, as Trump rightly states "Our Leaders are stupid".
Just the Democrats? No other party spends tons of money in foreign countries? The Republicans talk a big game, but I don't see them passing any bills. They want tons of money to go to war, but when they are done with you they toss you in the street and say adjust. They are both full of it, they use you and toss you aside, that is one of the many reasons Ron Paul was right, only go to war when you have to, not to piece keep the entire retarded world.
bad part is, we are spending money, its just not getting to the vets.
its just more pi$$'en in our faces and telling us its raining.
Thank you to my brother veteran for his service, and
Thank you to Max Zahir for his kindness to our veterans.
If you're going to call others out, I hope you yourself are giving your own money directly those you think the government should be giving tax dollars to.
I'm not disagreeing with the points in this thread. I'm just saying, make sure you are doing everything you can first before pointing fingers anywhere else.
Why does Obama hate this country and the military so much?
Come now mikeinchicagoarea , the dems mostly do not like vets or give a rats arse about them unless votes are involved, as far as those sworn to destroy America, well they see them as votes for their party, and more brown skins hastening the minority status of white people. As far as I'm concerned vets especially disabled or homeless vets should come first they volunteered to protect this land, and those who were drafted went into war without running like some. That go fund me page is a good start.
Because it doesn't fit B.O.'s agenda!
The amount spent on refugees pales in comparison to the amounts we spent invading Afghanistan and Iraq in the first place.
So next time you hear someone say we should spend $2 trillion and invade Syria, please keep this veteran in mind!
Because the "ReTARD" in Charge has a thing for the Muslim-Brotherhood first ~!

Compared to the effectiveness of whatever the government does the vetting system is strong.

In addition, since voting is by secret ballot, Rahm has already marked your ballot and put it in a sealed envelope to save you the trouble.

In a way, if an attack on Washington happens, it could have a positive outcome. It would force the Muslim in the White House to take positive action against Muslim terrorists. If he didn’t the backlash from the citizenry would be so loud that Congress would be forced to act as one against Obama.
Obama and Putin were walking around out in the country, discussing politics and enjoying the scenery and mild fall weather. On the trail, they came across a herd of sheep.
When they approached, the sheep tried to get away, but one had gotten its head caught in the fence next to the trail and became stuck.
Putin smiled, walked behind the sheep and dropped his drawers and had his way with it. When Putin was done, he turned to Obama and said, "go ahead it's your turn!"
Obama eagerly walked over, and then stuck his head in the fence
BO wouldn't do anythiing even if he admitted it. He's a liar.
 November 15, 2015 at 11:19am
Obama is correct.
We contained them in the middle east, now the containment has spread to Europe, soon the containment will spread to North America. Way to go Barack!!!!
 November 15, 2015 at 11:17am
Obama still hasn’t called these terrorists “terrorists.” Until he admits they are terrorists, nothing will be done by him.
and ok if the teacher passed the love not to a 9 year old
 November 12, 2015 at 10:47am
Ever consider that you have to fight terrorism by the rules of terrorism?

At another Simon mall, Woodfield in Schaumburg, Illinois they started offering, at $10 per family, a set time to see Santa so you don’t have to wait in line. The mall operators should use as their byline, a Scrooge Mall instead of a Simon Mall. That, in conjunction with setting up for Christmas earlier every year to get every last dollar is the epitome of Ebenezer Scrooge.
 November 7, 2015 at 1:06pm
I guess Obama is under the mistaken opinion that people want him to visit. That is unless the city is run by Democrats and has a large percentage of people on government handouts.
