Ted Cruz Ignores Question About U.S. Citizenship

CAN HE PROVE IT?

by Sharon Rondeau

(Feb. 26, 2016) — On Friday morning, the Twitter account of presidential candidate Ted Cruz issued a tweet stating, “I’ve consistently stood up to both parties fighting for the people, and I’ll do the same as President!”

The tweet included video footage of last night’s Republican presidential debate, which became heated among Cruz and fellow presidential contenders Donald Trump and Marco Rubio.

In light of Cruz’s renunciation of Canadian citizenship in May 2014 but no documentary evidence of U.S. citizenship at birth or any other time, The Post & Email responded, “Where is your proof of U.S. citizenship?” including a link to one of its many published articles on the topic.

Not surprisingly, we received no response to our tweet, although Cruz’s Twitter account issued repetitions of pledges made on Thursday night and in previous debates to “repeal Obamacare.”

In another tweet, Cruz stated that “Marco Rubio and I would both be a much better president than Donald Trump” with a link to an article published in The Washington Times on Friday by the same name based on a post-debate interview Cruz gave to CNN.

CNN reported in June 2014, when Cruz’s renunciation of his Canadian citizenship became official, that he was “now a citizen of the United States — and the United States only.”  However, to The Post & Email’s knowledge, no documentation of U.S. citizenship has yet been produced by the Cruz campaign.  At issue with many is if Cruz was registered as a U.S. citizen at his birth, afterward, or not at all.  Approximately a dozen FOIA requests made by The Post & Email have not yielded an answer to the question.

When news of his then-Canadian citizenship was reported by The Dallas Morning News in August 2013 , Cruz’s U.S. Senate office erroneously denied its existence.

When Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on December 22, 1970, the Canadian law in effect at the time did not recognize dual citizenship and based citizenship on birthplace.  It is unknown if Cruz’s parents, presumably as foreign citizens there, registered him as a U.S. citizen born abroad at one of several U.S. consulates across the country.  Whether or not seven U.S. consulates in Canada existed in 1970 is not known.  The U.S. Embassy is located in Ottawa, Ontario.

On Friday morning, Gateway Pundit reported that “Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were caught shaking hands in front of Trump during a commercial break at last night’s CNN GOP debate,” referencing a Fox News video in which a CNN report of the alleged meeting was discussed.

At 11:54 a.m. EST, a Fox News anchor referred to Rubio and Cruz as a “tag team,” as did Gateway Pundit.

According to Cruz’s spokeswoman, Catherine Frazier, who denied Cruz’s Canadian citizenship, Cruz traveled overseas on a U.S. passport in 1986 for a high school trip.  That documentation has not been released, and the U.S. State Department will not release information on third parties without their expressed written consent.

In October 2012, Trump issued a challenge to Obama in which he offered him $5 million, and then $50 million, to release his college and passport application forms.  Both challenges were ignored.  Trump has said that he suspects that Obama either falsely reported himself as a foreign student to obtain financial aid set aside for that purpose or that Obama accurately applied for the aid as a foreign student.

As for Trump on Friday morning, he tweeted:

    The reference to eligibility is: article II, section 1, clause 5 of the United States Constitution. The signed forms are using clause 4 which may be an out.

    Here is link to Marco Rubio’s republican presidential candidate filing with Arizona’s Secretary of State. He states that “I am a natural born citizen of the United States…”, and in his New Hampshire Presidential Primary Election Declaration of Candidacy document, attached, he swears under penalties of perjury that he is qualified to be candidate for president of the United States pursuant to article II, section 1, clause 4 of the United States Constitution… However no proof is attached:

    Here is link to Arizona’s Secretary of State website, with Republican presidential candidate documents that Ted Cruz filed, where he states that “I am a natural born citizen of the United States…”. Arizona Secretary Michele Reagan signed “that all forms required by law to be submitted to the Secretary of State for nomination at the Presidential Preference Election to be held on March 22, 2016 have been received in this office on the 13 day of November, 2015”, however there is no evidence that Ted Cruz proved his “natural born citizen” requirement:

    I believe the likes of Obama, Cruz and Rubio all make sport of so called birthers trying to expose them as constitutionally not eligible for the position of POTUS or VP. Many government employees the work at DOS have openly spoken to this as they are playing our game of trying to prove a negative using a document (US Constitution) that is dormant at best.

    In fact many of the 3 letter agency make sport of the birthers and here I will share with you 3 events they are proud of and know the people will do nothing because the don’t won’t except it due to pride and cognitive dissonance.

    Treaty of Paris which ended the American Revolution and the corollary Treaty of Versailles.
    There are three international Trustees named as caretakers of The United States Trust (1789). The Pope, in His Temporal Office, the British Monarch, and The United States Postmaster (Civil).

    Treaty of Westminster (1794) in which the City State of Westminster and the Crown Temple pledge “amity” in “perpetuity” with the newly formed United States.

    Treaty of Verona (1845) in which the then-Pope and the British Monarch, both Trustees of the American national trust, agreed that the representative form of government was incompatible with Divine Right of Kings and with Papal Supremacy, and so both acted in secretive Breach of Trust.

    So who’s winning and losing at this point? Is it the people of the continental United States or the Royal Crown?

    And the real nut cracker no one knows of the birth of the IRS and its ownership.

    Maybe one day more people will explore this for having a better understanding in how to return our country back to the republic our founding fathers gave us guidance for. but we slept as they change us from Law of the Land to Law of the Sea/Maritime Law.
