(Apr. 24, 2016) — On Saturday evening, Breitbart News published a summary of presidential candidate Donald Trump’s rally in Waterbury, CT earlier that day which included Trump’s reported references to presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s birth in Canada.

The Post & Email is certain, but cannot prove, that a quote attributed to Trump in which Trump alleged that Cruz’s Canadian citizenship was questioned when Cruz sought his U.S. Senate seat in 2012 appeared in the body of the Breitbart article.

On Sunday morning, the quote is not there but can be accessed from the article by clicking on a Twitter link belonging to the account of “Sopan Deb.”

When clicking either highlighted link, the following appears:

An enlarged version of the tweet reads:

On Sunday morning, after noticing that the article appeared different, The Post & Email attempted to reach the author, Alex Swoyer, but could not locate contact information on the Breitbart website. We then submitted a comment to the article after signing in with our Twitter account, as we have done in the past.

The comment asked if a “yellow-highlighted” section of text had been removed since last night. The comment appeared on the website but after approximately ten minutes could not be found.  We did not take a screenshot of the comment.

We then resubmitted our question in the same manner, taking a screenshot just before sending it:

We took successive screenshots after the question appeared above other comments below the article:

Screenshot taken after 2-3 minutes of our comment’s appearance

However, upon checking several minutes later at 10:20 AM EDT, we found that our comment had again disappeared.

To double-check, we conducted a search for the word “yellow,” which produced no results.  However, a search for words appearing in others’ comments yielded appropriate results.

On his Twitter account, Sopan Deb appears to say that he is affiliated with CBS News; The Post & Email attempted to verify that by tweeting:

As of press time, Sopan Deb has not responded.  Reporters customarily use their real names on Twitter.

Prior to composing this article, we checked the Wayback Machine for the Breitbart article, but it had not yet been archived.  We also looked to see if bloggers had taken a screenshot of the comments or reproduced them in any way and found nothing.

The mainstream media does not appear to have reported the same alleged comments from Trump.

On March 10, the North American Law Center (NALC) sent a letter to Texas Secretary of State Carlos H. Cascos asking a single question:

Last week, The Post & Email had a conversation with an individual possessing knowledge of the North American Law Center’s activities who confirmed that no one from the Texas Secretary of State’s office had responded to the letter.

In August 2013, The Dallas Morning News reported that Cruz was born a dual citizen of Canada and the United States, respectively due to his physical birth in Calgary, Alberta and his mother having been a U.S. citizen.  Cruz claims he is a “natural born Citizen,” as is required for the president under Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution, by virtue of his birth to an American citizen.

While many have ridiculed the public’s questions about Cruz’s constitutional eligibility, a number of law professors have opined that because of his birthplace in another country, Cruz is not eligible.

The Cruz campaign did not respond to a request from The Post & Email in April 2015 to release documentation affirming his alleged U.S. citizenship from birth.  Other than the birth certificate posted by The Dallas Morning News nearly three years ago, the only other document Cruz appears to have made available is his renunciation of Canadian citizenship applied for in May 2014 and granted approximately one month later.

In order for a candidate to seek a U.S. Senate seat, he or she must have been a U.S. citizen for at least nine years, as stated in Article I, Section 3 of the Constitution.

Just before publication, The Post & Email located Trump making the comments on video, as reported by Sopan Deb, at The Gateway Pundit.

In addition, a response to our comment was received by email and leads to a Disqus compilation of comments, including the first comment The Post & Email submitted.  The response came from “chipster,” but we were unable to locate it in the Disqus archive.

  1. See Laity v NY,Cruz,Rubio and Jindal,Docket # 1561-16, in the NY State Supreme Court for Albany County, NOW. Seeking Injunctions against Cruz,Rubio,Jindal and Governor Andrew Cuomo. The parties were all served on Saturday April 23,2016 by a hired process server.

  2. If Cruz’s mother were Canadian, that means she would have renounced US citizenship?

    If that, then she would have had no derivative quality for American citizenship to pass on to Ted, even if she had filled out a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (which she would have been prohibited from doing..so she didn’t!!)

    Perhaps being a US Citizen is only an ILLUSION that Cruz projects and which he may/may not truly believe.

    Could the mystery of the decade be that he is in reality “STATELESS?”

  3. Isn’t there some website called the Way Back Machine where you can access things as they were posted in the past? How hard could it be for a someone with a degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering to access the original Breitbart article?

    Doesn’t Breitbart.com have a professional responsibility to notify readers of editing undertaken on anything that they have published? Have the editors at Breitbart.com no honor?

    Those ‘We the People’ turn to to inform us within the profession of Journalism take upon themselves the duty of a Free Press to be truthful and to hold accountable those we entrust with positions of power that is a cornerstone of the American experiment and an indispensable element integral to the preservation of One Nation Under God if government of the people, by the people, and for the people is not to perish from the earth.

  4. Having listened to Trump’s said speech, I took it when Trump said “They” advised him, to mean [The Dallas Morning News]paper with their Big Story.. This was the way Ted was advised as Trump was referring, and not that the RNC or Republican National Committee had advised him , and certainly not before he ran for U.S. SENATE.

    I certainly can confirm however many Texans stating they wish Cruz’s primary opponent had focused on that Fact for it would have made a difference in their vote for the Texas Senatorial Race.

  5. Our nation’s entire governmental structure has worked together like an omerta-like federal-criminal syndication to deny some 320,000,000 American citizens their inalienable property-knowledge of the full identity of any presidential candidate (Rafael Cruz) and any incumbent president (Barry Soetoro-Obama).

    Therefore, until Barry and Rafael are fully identified, We the People have no responsible choice except to declare all that ID Thief-in-Chief Barry Soetoro-Obama and ID Thief Rafael Cruz did 08-28-08- TODAY, as CONSTITUIONALLY NULL AND VOID.

    Our nation’s entire governmental structure is a racketeering criminal enterprise, and our heart-earned tax payment dollars are extorted since 08-28-08.

    We the People are robbed anew each day since 08-28-08 (the beginning of the Pelosi-Obama Sedition); we have no Constitutional Republic president Soetoro-Obama and we have no Constitutional Senator Cruz. Both are ID felons and traitors to the US Constitution.

    Until our federal government proves me 100% irrefutably verifiably wrong herein, my above responsible-citizen statements stand on their own as FACT.

    GOD SAVE AMERICA since no one else is on duty 08-28-08- TODAY!
