Birther II.

Image result for trump's birther base cruzI could never be elected president of these divided states of America. Not because I wouldn't love to lead this great nation, but because I was born in Jamaica to Jamaican parents. Being married to an American (bless my wife's American born and bred heart) does not make me anymore qualified.  Article Two of the Constitution clearly states that the person must be a natural-born citizen of the United States and must have been a permanent resident of the United States of America for at least 14 years, and that each candidate must be at least 35 years of age. 

Which brings me to our friend, Ted Cruz. Ted is the closest presidential contender on the republican side to Donald trump, and now it seems that Ted, like president Obama before him, has come under some birther fire from the orange colored one. Let's call this Birther II.

“Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem,” Trump said when asked about the topic. “It’d be a very precarious one for Republicans because he’d be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. You don’t want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head.”

This is a hell of a time for Donald to go birther. Just when Cruz is gaining some ground on him in the polls. Although I must say that I was wondering when this would happen. Trump made no bones about believing that our current president is not legitimate. But if you objectively compare Obama to Cruz you will have to say that the president checks off way more boxes when it comes to qualifications to be president than Cruz. Born on American soil? Check. Parents are citizens? Check. (At least one of them.) 35 Years old? Check. Resident of the United States for 14 years. Check. Lived  Let's examine Mr. Cruz. Born to American citizens. Check. (At least one of them.) 35 years old? Check. Resident of the Unites States for 14 years? Check. Born on American soil? Nope. Can't check this one. In fact, Ted Cruz just renounced his Canadian citizenship a couple of years ago. Canada is a nice country, and we share a lot of things, but it isn't America.

Let's be clear, legal experts have pretty much said that there should be no problem with Ted Cruz becoming president, but the courts have not ruled on the case of ted Cruz, and while we can assume that the courts will say that he is a "natural born citizen; we just can't say for sure. 

The case of President Obama is different. The facts are beyond dispute: He is a "natural born citizen".

Anyway, Ted Cruz, like president Obama before him, will probably have to deal with some birhter questions from trump for the foreseeable future. This of course will be a harder sell to trump's rabid base. Because, let's face it, to them president Obama just looks a lot more foreign than Ted Cruz.

Yeah but Cruz's last name is "Cruz" and that is not an American name by any means!

So to them he was born in Cuba, is a commie,and is related to Fidel :)

Yes, and that is the point of Trump's latest attack: to "Hispanicize" Cruz.

Ted Cruz is a very atypical Latino-American (entirely European ancestry; only one parent is even from Latin America; speaks little to no Spanish; evangelical, not Catholic -- I can go on ...). And most Americans don't view the Cubans who immigrated here as commies, because those guys were mostly the greedy-ass capitalists Fidel drove out after seizing their assets (would that make them "cappies"?). The Republican base largely see Cruz as a standard-issue white Texan -- in other words, one of their sort -- which is an important part of his appeal.

Trump aims to fix that, by suggesting Cruz is really a suspicious, untrustworthy foreign traitor who'd probably side with the "dirty Mexicans" who are stealing all the jobs, when they're not drug-dealing and raping, according to Trump. If Cruz continues to nip at his heels in the polls, you can expect a lot more of this nastiness. The birth certificate business is just the beginning.

Well Truth, he better whip that certificate out real quick then :)

But Cruz could never win an election, both he and Rubio are just dumb! They look dumb,they talk dumb, and they act dumb.

Since December, I count 12 articles about Republicans (13 if you count the one about Scalia), 8 of those being specifically about Butt Trumpet. Contrast with the 2 articles (this week) about the President, NADA about Clinton or Sanders. Media saturation is the right wing game. Field, I would respectfully suggest to you that like most of the media you are taking the bait, supporting the illusion that the right wing is attempting to create that they are the dominant force, the only party that counts. No doubt you have some thoughts about the Democratic candidates, and I would urge you to give them equal time.

I think Rubio could potentially win a general election. It's not out of the question. I don't think he's a great politician, but he's a tad less ridiculous than a lot of the rest of the Republican field. I don't believe he'll be the nominee, however, because the GOP racists won't allow it. He was for "amnesty," before he was against it, to paraphrase the charge against John Kerry on the Iraq War authorization in '04. The Trumpites will never, ever trust Rubio on immigration. Deport! Fence! Foreigners out!

I don't think Ted Cruz has much of a shot. He's too much of a froot loop and not at all a team player within the Republican Party. Ted Cruz serves his own self-interests at all times, never anyone else's. President Cruz is a scary thought, though. I shudder to imagine it. We'd be looking back at the reign of Dubya as the good old days.

And since relations with Cuba are rapidly improving, they may not need to come here anymore floating on an old tire -- they'll just be able to hop on a plane from Havana. Which makes me wonder what will happen with that "wet foot, dry foot" policy we've got for Cubans. They are the only nationality that can get instant green cards just by crossing the border into the U.S. If they can now come here easily, will Congress legislate to remove that special privilege, or will we suddenly be seeing a huge influx of new Cuban-Americans?

Call me skeptical but I don't think the Cuba-America relations are improving at all. I think it was just a ploy, they were just trying to get Assata out of there to trial her here. But the Cubans ain't giving her up! Not just yet anyway :)

Anyway I like trump, 'cos he's not afraid to be politically incorrect, and while he may be mistaken at times, he owns up to it and rectifies, and he doesn't back down in the face of adversity!

That's admirable in a politician! No matter what!

I don't like the way Cruz walks when he gets out of that campaign bus he's traveling on...the Idaho or Iowa video for example, he was dressed like them!!! With jeans and a little leather jacket! All he needed was the cowboy hat and string bow tie they wear! C'mon...gimmeabreak! So hypocritical! That's so old school politics!

I'm thinking will Cruz wear that at the White House? I think NOT!

No,no,no. Gimme an honest man like Trump! He wears what he ALWAYS wears! A suit!!! Honesty is the best policy in my book!!!

Back in 2008 when John McCain was running, Congress passed something to clarify the rule on "natural born." McCaini was born in Panama. But I'm not sure whether that just applied to McCain or whether it was something that could actually be helpful in eliminating theese mind-numbing controversies in the future...

Nah. Assata Shakur isn't that important. I mean, the cops in New Jersey do definitely want her extradited. They're furious she's evaded punishment for her cop-killing conviction. But she's not that big a deal to anyone else here.

If it were really only about capturing her, then our government wouldn't go to all the complicated effort to make nice with the Castro brothers. Keep in mind that we already tried unsuccessfully to murder Fidel multiple times (with exploding cigars and whatnot!), plus there was that whole failed Bay of Pigs attempt to invade Cuba and overthrow them. So it's clear that historically, we have had pretty limited respect for that country's laws and sovereignty.

If the feds really wanted Assata Shakur that strongly and didn't actually care at all about improving U.S.-Cuban relations, the CIA would just snatch her and dump her at Gitmo. She'd be hogtied and flown back to Jersey the next day.

So I'd have to say the thaw in hostilities is genuine. There are a lot of people in the U.S., including in government, that realize the Cold War is over, our never-ending embargo of Cuba is dumb, and we shouldn't keep it up just to placate some angry Cuban exiles in Florida.

---

Do you ever get tired of lying?

She did not say something nice, she said something theologically wrong. She said Christians and Muslims worship the same God, which is not true. Christianity and Islam have quite different conceptions of God. She also chose to do this on the start of Advent, a very important day in the Christian calendar.

She is entitled to her own theological opinions, but she is a professor at a Christian College and is supposed to support the institutions theological interpretations. Being an attention seeking social justice warrior, she decided to make this announcement wearing a hijab and encouraging all the other women at the school to follow her lead. For Christmas.

The mistake Wheaton College made was in thinking the wider society would let a Christian institution decide what was appropriate behavior for their employees. Someone waving a cross and proclaiming there is no difference between God and Allah at a Muslim organization during Ramadan might not get the same level of support from the Left, you think?

The only correlation between Christianity and Islam is that both are monotheistic. Conceptions of right and wrong, and of grace and redemption are decidedly different. In fact, the professor could be subject to an "honor killing" in many Muslim circles for insulting Islam. Salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone is totally foreign and anathema to Muslims.

The professor is either willfully ignorant or intellectually dishonest. Respecting those of a different worldview is different from syncretism. The latter respects neither God of the Bible nor Allah of the Qur'an.

Dear Lilac, for the record, Cosby did not force those women those women to take any Ludes or any wine without their consent. During those days, damn near everybody tried Ludes. Hell, it was the zeitgeist of the times.

FYI, Cosby has been declared by law, "innocent" of any crimes. I am very happy about the outcome. Bill Cosby did not deserve all this bullshit by women who 'knew' better.

Cosby is now counter-suing some of those wretched evil bitches and I hope he wins. At 79years, he doesn't need this shit. I hope he wins.

No reasonable person could assume that her statement was implying that Christianity and Islam were identical in all points of theology. She clearly was only pointing out that the two religions have common historical roots and their adherents hold many values in common. It was colloquial speech, not a university lecture.

And the people who don't want to believe the above -- which, by the way, are facts -- are also known as bigots. That's what this is really about. There are undoubtedly people in that school, both students and faculty, who are uncomfortable hearing their religion being compared in any way with Islam, don't want their faith to even be mentioned in the same sentence with Islam, because they are convinced Islam is evil.

The school admins can attempt to hide behind some convoluted theological pretense for their actions, but that's what their motives come down to.

No, he hasn't been declared anything.

The judge decided the two most recent charges, like all the other allegations, were past the statute of limitations and had to be dropped. That's not an acquittal on those charges; he just ran out the clock and couldn't be tried on them because it happened too long ago.

By the way, Cosby is still charged with assaulting a woman in Pennsylvania. It was only the two L.A. charges that got dropped.

I don't know Desert, Cruz has been called highly intelligent by numerous people who know him well. He did well as an undergraduate and law student at top Ivy League schools and was a formitable debator. He argued cases in front of the SC so he has to be a sharp cookie. Now, I agree he is a phony beyond the W playing cowboy level but it's working so I can't hate the player. On another note it seems anyone who meets him hates him so that won't help much.

No person at Wheaton College, reasonable or otherwise, has ever maintained that was the implication of Professor Hawkins' statement. The college's position is that she made a false statement as to the nature of deities of both religions, and she did so at the start of the college's celebration of Advent, wearing a hijab. This was a stunt that sought a reaction, which it got.

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

Cruz status has actually been an issue on the constitutionally confused right since he started sending out presidential feelers about 2 years ago. The Cruz birthers are the ones who exposed his dual citizenship 18 months ago when he was forced to renounce his Canadian citizenship. Only the foil hatters take the issue seriously; mainstream Republicans like McCaine are just signaling their deep general opposition to a Cruz nomination. It's not hyperbolic to say that the institutional Republican Party would rather lose with Trump than win with Cruz. They really do hate him that much.

Because they are in league with the elites who run the Democratic Party. They really would defend their relationship as the outer party to the Democrat inner party rather than lose their sinecures. Being a fake opposition pays very well.

You may, for racial and class reasons, hate the people involved, but the Republican revolt(s) that are underway, most notably with the Cruz and Trump campaigns, are the only serious challenge to the ruling oligarchy on the horizon.

Per-capita murders in the U.S. are the lowest in recorded history. So are firearms accidents. So why are the Democrats obsessed with gun control?

The political class serves to grow government, not to protect individual liberties. They view liberties as a challenge to be overcome.

The left wing of the Democrats are hell-bent on exceeding the power our Constitution allows government, and fear that the citizenry may very well take up arms against a tyrannical government, as the Founders always knew we must.

The Left Has No Clothes said...

Bob Owens said...

Most progressives--those more obsessed with central planning than others politicians--view the 2nd Amendment as their greatest threat.

This explains their opposition to a core individual right at a time when per-capita murder is at an all-time low.

It also explains their obsession on controlling in particular rifles, magazines, and ammunition useful for militia service but so rarely used in crime that the FBI doesn't even track them as a weapon type, but as a small subset of rifles.

Let's be perfectly clear: The Democrats are focused on those guns they fear could topple corrupt government, not those used in crime.

My advice to my fellow citizens is to ask themselves some simple questions. They are:

Why are politicians (especially the progressive/socialist/communist wing of the Democrats) so obsessed with firearms in 2016?

Why are the The Democrats focused with laser-like intensity on firearms/magazines/ammunition rarely used in crime but absolutely essential as "modern muskets" for citizens who may feel compelled to protect liberty against government?

I'd strongly advise my fellow citizens, regardless of party, to ask themselves those questions.

Chester A. Arthur-
Chester Arthur rumor still lingers in Vermont

Nearly 123 years after his death, doubts about his US citizenship linger, thanks to lack of documentation and a political foe’s assertion that Arthur was really born in Canada – and was therefore ineligible for the White House, where he served from 1881 to 1885….


Democrats, meanwhile, hired a lawyer named Arthur Hinman who sought to discredit Arthur, alleging that he was born in Dunham, Quebec, about 47 miles north of Fairfield. Hinman traveled to Vermont and Canada to research Arthur’s past, eventually concluding that Arthur was born in Canada but appropriated the birth records of a baby brother who was born in Fairfield, but died as an infant.

The Situation Room: Is McCain Eligible To Be President?

http://crooksandliars.com/2008/02/29/the-situation-room-is-mccain-eligible-to-be-president


And there's this from the New York Times

"The question has nagged at the parents of Americans born outside the continental United States for generations: Dare their children aspire to grow up and become president? In the case of Senator John McCain of Arizona, the issue is becoming more than a matter of parental daydreaming….

Mr. McCain is not the first person to find himself in these circumstances. The last Arizona Republican to be a presidential nominee, Barry Goldwater, faced the issue. He was born in the Arizona territory in 1909, three years before it became a state. But Goldwater did not win, and the view at the time was that since he was born in a continental territory that later became a state, he probably met the standard.

It also surfaced in the 1968 candidacy of George Romney, who was born in Mexico, but again was not tested. The former Connecticut politician Lowell P. Weicker Jr., born in Paris, sought a legal analysis when considering the presidency, an aide said, and was assured he was eligible. Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr. was once viewed as a potential successor to his father, but was seen by some as ineligible since he had been born on Campobello Island in Canada. The 21st president, Chester A. Arthur, whose birthplace is Vermont, was rumored to have actually been born in Canada, prompting some to question his eligibility."


The rest of the list.

George Romney
Lowell Weicker, Jr.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr.
