(May 18, 2019) — On the May 17 edition of “Freedom Friday” guest-hosted by Nick Stewart in Carl Gallups’s absence, executive editor and frequent guest Mike Shoesmith quoted from The Post & Email’s May 8 article on the alleged “natural born Citizenship” of British-born “Baby Sussex,” now known as Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Born May 6 in London, Archie is the child of American actress-turned-Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, younger grandson of Queen Elizabeth II.

The segment begins just after the 25:00 mark following Stewart’s opening monologue and news summary.  http://www.carlgallups.com/ffr/5-17-19.mp3

After reading from the opening paragraphs of the article relating an exchange that morning on “Fox & Friends” between co-hosts Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt, Shoesmith, who is Canadian, shared his theory as to why Doocy might have promoted “Baby Sussex” as eligible to the U.S. presidency:  to promote Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, also Canadian-born, as eligible to be U.S. president for a possible 2024 presidential bid.

Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta on December 22, 1970 to a presumed U.S.-citizen mother and Cuban-citizen father, the latter of whom became a Canadian, and much later an American, citizen.  Although The Post & Email acquired proof that Eleanor Darragh Cruz was born in Delaware, at least one credible report surfaced in 2016 contending that she became a Canadian citizen while the family was living in Calgary roughly between 1968 and 1974.

In 2013, The Dallas Morning News reported that Cruz was born a dual U.S.-Canadian citizen, after which Cruz claimed he was unaware he possessed Canadian citizenship to that day. He then applied to renounce the citizenship, completing the process approximately nine months later.

In March 2015, Cruz declared himself a presidential candidate.  When asked by CNN’s Dana Bash about his eligibility given his widely-publicized Canadian birth, he said that a child born to one American-citizen parent, regardless of birthplace, is a “natural born Citizen,” as the U.S. Constitution requires for the nation’s chief executive.

It is believed that the inclusion of the “natural born Citizen” clause in Article II resulted, at least in part, from a letter John Jay wrote to George Washington in July 1787 as the Constitutional Convention was taking place.  “Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government, and to declare expressly that the Command in chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor devolved on, any but a natural born Citizen,” Jay said in his second paragraph.

Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, too, wrote in Federalist #68, “Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one querter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union? But the convention have guarded against all danger of this sort, with the most provident and judicious attention.”

At approximately 37:30, Shoesmith said that in 2008, he was invited on “The Mark Levin Show,” recalling that Levin had been “rabidly” opposed to anyone calling in to his show questioning Cruz’s eligibility.  Supporting his theory that Cruz might again seek the U.S. presidency in 2024, Shoesmith referenced a Facebook page promoting Cruz’s potential candidacy and compared his political path to that of Ronald Reagan, who sought the Republican nomination in 1976 against then-incumbent Gerald Ford but was defeated.

In 1980, Reagan went on to win the nomination and the presidency after serving two terms as California governor.

Cruz is serving his second term as the junior U.S. Senator from Texas.

Returning to the topic of Cruz’s presidential eligibility, Shoesmith said, “Ted Cruz, much like Baby Sussex, qualified to be prime minister of Canada.  Ted Cruz would be in clear violation of the spirit behind the natural born Citizenship clause, which is ‘no split allegiances.'”

Donald Trump had questioned Cruz’s eligibility during the 2016 campaign, and, unlike Barack Obama, whose eligibility remains in question in some Americans’ minds because of his foreign-citizen father and reported forged government documentation, was joined by a number of constitutional scholars, columnists and politicos who said Cruz is not eligible.

“People like Mark Levin want to broaden the field to include people who are borderline-eligible,” Shoesmith opined.  “…We’ve all made the case; none of these people are eligible.”

“The main thing is they can’t control him. He is his own man, and they have no control over him, and that scares them to death,” Stewart said of the strident opposition to Trump’s presidency.  “There’s no question in my mind this is all about control from powers that want puppets in the White House, in government,” Shoesmith responded.  “Listen:  if you guys don’t take a solid, firm stand against that, you’re going to end up like Canada…”

Shoesmith decried Canadian “socialist” policies which he said are no different from “communism,” including restrictions on freedom of speech and religion.

  1. Gary Wilmott, you are correct. Cruz’s mother does not matter, like Barry’s. It’s a false flag a distraction.


    Read my post and even be amazed that President’s Grant’s daughter

    One notable case is President Grant’s daughter, in 1874, she, Nellie Grant married Algernon Charles Frederick Sartoris, an Englishman. The couple left the United States and lived in Great Britain. British law stated that an alien woman became an English subject when she married a citizen of Great Britain. (Again, the British Acts declared that the wife follow the condition of her husband, that same act followed Barack Obama’s statement as earlier noted and why there is no mention of Barack Obama’s mother) Did this give Nellie Grant dual citizenship? The Act of 1868 determined that, by establishing residency outside the country, she had relinquished her American citizenship. When Nellie Grant Sartoris returned to the United States at the end of her marriage, State Department practice at the time held that, by returning, she automatically regained her citizenship. Despite this, in 1896, she petitioned Congress to reinstate her American nationality. In a Special Act of 1898, she regained an unconditional resumption of her citizenship. Thereby establishing she lost her citizenship my marrying a foreign national. Mind you this was no ordinary citizen, but the daughter of the US President.

  2. All excellent remarks here. Arnold you are correct on your points. Rosemary, Gary, and Nikit
    I find your remarks valid and helpful. Robert, you are a “bull dog”. Thanks for your endless efforts. All your efforts, research, court filings, and constant offense is wholly noted and bound to produce fruit. Thomas, I agree with your items, but I am hopeful while it may take some time, this fake Obama scam may blow up.

    I too am in this fight and let’s not waiver. It is nice to know others like you are in the fight too.
    Let’s band together and press on to the mission.

  3. Well Tom, there were plenty of people who died during Obama’s presidential run. Our media like Sean, Bill, Mark and other conservatives were actually threatened with their lives. Now we know who the deep state is and I have always been convinced that the evil John Brennan had everything to do with those deaths and the hacking of gov computers of MCain, Clinton and Obama to clean out the info of Obama. However, now would be the time for someone to make a big stink about eligibility qualifications so that ppl, hopefully will begin to see that Obama was never eligible. If enough people speak up about it they can’t be harmed. If that person is Cruz, no one can claim discrimination could they? I don’t want Trump to be the one though. It should not be him for obvious reasons.

  4. Prior to 1934 only the father could pass his American citizenship to his foreign born child. A congressional STATUTE liberalized the naturalization law so that the mother could also pass her citizenship to her foreign-born child in 1934. The Constitution was not changed. No amendment was passed and the definition of Natural Born Citizen was not changed or even discussed.

    The Equal Nationality Act of 1934 was an American law which allowed foreign-born children of American mothers and alien fathers who had entered America before age 18 and lived in America for five years to apply for American citizenship for the first time. It also made the naturalization process quicker for American women’s alien husbands.This law equalized expatriation, immigration, naturalization, and repatriation between women and men.

    Therefore Ted Cruz, born in 1970, can only make a CLAIM for American citizenship pursuant to the 1934 statute passed by Congress under it’s enumerated power to regulate naturalization and immigration law. Certainly not the Constitution.

    Cruz is not nor can he ever be a Natural Born American citizen. Thus ineligible to be POTUS (Article 2) or VPOTUS (12th Amendment). It;s simple. It’s clear. It’s unequivocal. It’s common sense. Any claim that Cruz makes that he is a Natural Born citizen is outright fraud. And then of course there is the pesky issue that for the first 43 years of his life, Cruz was in fact a Canadian citizen. If Cruz ever became an American citizen it is pursuant to a congressional naturalization statute only.

  5. As if to say he knew that he (and Obama) is not eligible to be President, Cruz once said that “If Obama can do it, so can I”. Senator Bob Dole also once said that Cruz was not eligible even to be a U.S. Senator., that “Cruz entered the Senate as a Canadian”. I sued Cruz on this very issue in 2016. I will do it again. Cruz is NOT a “Natural Born [U.S.] Citizen”. Neither is Kamala Harris, et al. An NBC is one born IN the U.S. to parents who are BOTH U.S. Citizens themselves.

  6. As far as the 2020 election is concerned, I’ll bet that no serious revelations or accusations about “Barack Hussein Obama” and his constitutional ineligibility and use of fraudulent identification documents will be made public before then and certainly not by Donald Trump or anyone connected with him or his campaign. America will go on living a lie, like it has for the last decade. The reason seems fairly obvious.
    If the sick treasonous truth about “Obama” were exposed, it likely would cause civil unrest (if not actual civil war), and Donald Trump (who, it is noted, last declared that “Obama” was “born in the United States period!”) would not be re-elected.
    For this scenario to change so that “Obama” could be peacefully outed and the country and both political parties could still survive and coexist, it would require some heretofore unheard of bravery, statesmanship, and selfless patriotism. “Obama” himself might have to issue a sincere mea culpa (unfortunately, probably not something he will ever do).
    Sadly, the outlook is bleak. Too many cowards and traitors have covered up for “Obama” too long. Not just Democrats, but people in the Republican Party, law enforcement, the courts, and the unscrupulous news media (even including the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and others, who could have helped save our republic years ago before it had become too late).
