(Jul. 11, 2017) — On Tuesday, The Post & Email received documents by email from the U.S. Justice Department stemming from a March 2015 FOIA request for documents signed and/or generated by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who served as Deputy Attorney General in 2001 following the election of President George W. Bush.

Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on December 22, 1970 and moved with his mother to Texas when he was four, joining his father there, although his parents were later to separate permanently.

Throughout his long career in public service, Cruz has never released documentation showing that he possesses U.S. citizenship.  The Canadian government reportedly considered him a citizen at the moment of his birth given that it occurred on Canadian soil.

Cruz was an outstanding high school student and attended Princeton University, where he was a notable debater.  He then attended and graduated from Harvard Law School with honors.

After obtaining his law degree, Cruz clerked for Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge J. Michael Luttig followed by then-U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist.  He worked as an attorney in private practice for several years, later entering public service as an adviser to the George W. Bush campaign.

In 2001, he worked as an associate deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, then as the director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

While his FTC documents were released online in 2015 in response to FOIA requesters, Cruz’s documentation from Justice was not, hence our request filed just after Cruz declared himself a presidential candidate on March 23, 2015.

In October 2014, The Post & Email obtained and reported that documents from the Texas Attorney General‘s office showed that an applicant’s citizenship status is not asked on the application for the position of Solicitor General.

When pressed during the campaign, Cruz claimed to meet the Article II, Section 1, clause 5 “natural born Citizen” constitutional requirement to serve as U.S. president and commander-in-chief despite considerable skepticism that his foreign birthplace and foreign-citizen father preclude him from qualifying.

After Cruz became the first Republican to join the presidential race for 2016, The Post & Email made a number of respective FOIA requests to the Canadian government, the Texas executive branch, and the U.S. federal government for documentation which might indicate whether Cruz claimed to be a U.S. citizen on the applications he was required to complete.

We also sent a certified letter to the Cruz campaign requesting that he release proof that he met the “natural born Citizen” requirement.  The sole response received was the return-receipt card.

During campaign rallies, Cruz claimed to be a “natural born Citizen” by way of the 1790 Naturalization Act passed by Congress without disclosing to his audiences that the law was repealed and replaced in 1795 specifically in regard to whether or not a child born abroad to U.S.-citizen parents is a “natural born Citizen” or simply a “citizen.”

It has not been confirmed whether or not Cruz became a naturalized U.S. citizen, was born a dual Canadian-U.S. citizen as was reported by The Dallas Morning News in August 2013, or if he did not acquire U.S. citizenship until he renounced his Canadian citizenship in May 2014.  Neither his application for Texas solicitor general nor his Texas Bar Registration card speak to whether or not he claimed to be a U.S. citizen at the time the respective applications were submitted.

On Wednesday, The Post & Email will release the documents it received from the Justice Department.

  1. Sharon Rondeau has done some good work. She has the true view of the legal definition of “natural born citizen” eligible to the Office of President.

    But she (and we) won’t know the eligibility of Ted Cruz to the Office of President or to the Senate unless official inquiry elicits the relevant and material evidence. This will include the actual birth certificate (if the proffered one is not it) and DNA analyses.

    Sharon says, “Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on December 22, 1970 and moved with his mother to Texas when he was four, joining his father . . . . ”

    She tries to be accurate, but subpoenae of birth records and DNA might prove this statement to be dead wrong in one or more particulars.

    What if DNA analyses prove it’s biologically impossible for Cruz to be the child of his putative mother or father? This happens. In Mississippi recently, a married couple had trouble conceiving and DNA analysis proved they were in fact twins. Their married parents had died in a car crash when they were infants and they were adopted out individually.

    I can readily imagine that Ted Cruz was born in the States to two American citizens, then taken to Alberta, Canada, and adopted by his putative parents. Then in my opinion he would be a natural born American citizen eligible both to the Senate and the Office of President. If on the other hand the putative parents are confirmed by DNA analysis as the birth parents, and Sharon’s statement is proved accurate, then Ted Cruz is ineligible to the Office of President and might not even be an American citizen eligible to the Senate (see Three-Pound Sledge 12 July 2017).

    It’s disgusting that American officials refuse to conduct the necessary official inquiry to resolve these issues. Something else for Dr. Randal Paul to use in his class on dystopia.

  2. Despite knowing that he is NOT a natural born USA citizen.Ted Cruz in violent rebellion intends to run for President AGAIN in 2020!As Larry Klayman pointed out not even the Late justice Scalia understood the Natural Born citizen Clause which although part of Constitutional Law is being purposely IGNORED allowing those with blind ambition and political agendas to run for the Restricted office of USA President.Obama based on the Natural Citizen Requirement should NEVER have been allowed to run for the USA Presidency! As a result we have Unconstitutional Obamacare which violently destroyed America’s economy and healthcare system.Socialists in the Republican party having government in the citizens private healthcare have NO desire whatever to let go and return America’s private healthcare system to the Free Market but want to Control the people like a Communist country!To END Obamacare legally for all time,Obama MUST BE EXPOSED as a FRAUDULENT President not only based on the NATURAL BORN CITIZEN CLAUSE but based on his FRAUDULENT IDENTITY!Once Obama is EXPOSED everything Obama did as a FRAUD President will be NULL and VOID!

  3. TO: Canadian Senator Lyin’ Ted the Undocumented Fed

    Only thru Constitution Prostitution, while employing pimps of Lady Justice called “licensed attorneys”, can your “natural born [Canadian] Citizen” be fully equal to my “natural born [American] Citizen” [NBC] living circumstances.

    You were born in Canada in 1970.
    I was born in Bangor, Maine at Eastern Maine General Hospital on Easter Sunday 1949.

    You were a bona fide citizen of Canada with no need for a Canadian passport to reside there.
    I have visited Canada many times using a necessary US Passport.

    Your parents were Cuban or Canadian (?) citizens in 1970 when you were born.
    My parents were born in Maine in 1924/1925 and remained married/never divorced American citizens until they both died at age 80.

    Your resided in Canada from your birthday until age 4.
    My legal residence for all my 68 years has been mainland USA.

    Lyin’ Ted is a multi-citizen…where’s Ted’s original US naturalization papers?
    “FANTASY 44 Obama II” is a multi-citizen…where’s Obama’s original un-forged birth certificate?
    I remain a single-citizen of only one country, USA.

    How does Ted Cruz’s “NBC” = JD Mooers’ “NBC” = “FANTASY 44 Obama II’s” “FBC” ?
    (FBC = forged birth certificate; http://canadafreepress.com/2009/williams091209.htm >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QM2GJn6hpJE >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuhF-Ok3djI )

    ANSWER: They are all equal in statute and stature only when a lawless U.S. Government engages in a syndicated prostitution of the U.S. Constitution of 1789 (while employing pimps of Lady Justice called “licensed attorneys”), and willfully ignores, or punishes, anyone who reveals to them with charity and clarity of thought: politically correct = politically corrupt!

    VOTER FRAUD AT THE POLLS = illegal voters allowed to veto my vote
    VOTER FRAUD BY THE POLS = Lyin’ Ted and “Obama II” allowed to veto my NBC with “Canadian born Citizen” and FBC

  4. In any event Ted Cruz does NOT meet the legally established US Supreme Court re-affirmed (See: Minor v Happersett, (1874)) definition of a “natural born citizen” found in the Law of Nations (referenced in Art. 1, Sec.8, USConst.).

    That definition is “One born IN the United States to parents who are both US Citizens themselves”.

    In the original French version of the Law of Nations, which was in ubiquitous usage in the 18th Century by both British and US Courts, it states that “Les Naturels,ou indigenes, sont ceux qui sont nes de le pays, de parentS citoyenS” .

    Natural Born Citizens or ( “Les Naturels”) are those born in the country (“nes de le pays) to parents who are both citizens (“Parents Citoyens”). It does not say nes de le pays de UN (one) parent [who is a] citoyen (Citizen).

    It says parentS (both of them) citoyenS (plural of citizen). “Parents citoyens” as opposed to parent citoyen means parents plural MUST be Citizens of the country where their child is born for said child to be an NBC of that country.
