Why I think Ted Cruz is not a Natural Born Citizen

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Last weekend I wrote this letter and sent it to Ted Cruz.


Senator Ted Cruz

Presidential Campaign Headquarters

PO Box 25376

Houston TX 77265


April 18th 2015


Too Senator Ted Cruz;


    I am a fellow Christian and I am writing this letter, because I think you are making a terrible mistake by running for the Presidency of the United States.  I am very conservative in my views and I am a registered independent, because I think the Republican Party has lost its way and I do not want to be associated with them.  I agree with most of your views, but the reason I am writing this is, because I believe you are not eligible under the Constitution to run for president.

   I am been studying the Natural Born Citizen clause for over 7 years now, with Obama and I believe he is not eligible either to be the president and he is currently serving as a usurper in the White House. This is very dangerous and we can see what he is doing to this country.  I have written letters to media outlets in the past about this subject and of course get no response.  I have followed many of the lawsuits that have been filed across the country on this issue, have read books and articles, and have listened to a lot of talk shows over the years discuss this subject.

   I believe the media has deliberately changed the definition of Natural Born Citizen to greatly water it down and that is why they are not going after you or Rubio about it like they should be.  Let me give you a quick explanation of what the term Natural Born Citizen is and I am sure you know this, since I believe you are a Constitutional Scholar.   In order to be considered a Natural Born Citizen the following three criteria must be met.


  1. You must be born on United States Soil (you were not, Obama may have been, and McCain was not).
  2. Your Father must be a US Citizen (Natural Born, Naturalized, or Native Born) at the time of the child’s birth. (As I understand it your father was a Canadian citizen at the time of your birth, we know Obama’s father never became a US citizen at all, and McCain’s father was a US citizen in the military).
  3. Your Mother must be a US Citizen (Again Natural Born, Naturalized, or Native Born) at the time of the child’s birth. (All three of you meet this qualification).


   So I see you only meet one of the three criteria listed above.  Obama meets one for sure and maybe two depending on if his birth certificate is authentic, which is highly questionable.  McCain meets two out of the three, but the difference with him is that he was born on military base in Panama, when both his parents were serving in the military.  A Senate committee did an investigation into McCain’s eligibility and determined that he met the qualifications, even though technically he was born on foreign soil.

   The main reason the founders put this clause into the Constitution is because they did not want someone becoming president who could have split loyalties, between their mother’s country of origin and their father’s if they were citizens of different countries.  I wish to God they had written it down very straight forward in the Constitution the exact definition, because then we would not have Obama in the White House, but unfortunately that is not the case.  The main reason they did not write it down was because at the time of the signing of the Constitution, it was common knowledge who was a Natural Born Citizen and who was not.  While the founders were great men and foresaw a lot of things that could go wrong in the future, they did not think that the Natural Born Citizen clause would be one of them apparently.  I also think they should have put terms limits for Congress members in the Constitution as well, but that story is for another day.

  While the founders did not specifically write down the definition in the Constitution itself one of the first acts passed by Congress did explain the definition and it is very clear. The Nationality Act of 1790 says the following:


And the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens: Provided, that the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States:


    So it plainly says in this law that the children of Citizens not just one parent or the other, but both shall be considered Natural Born Citizens.  Also the Supreme Court made the same ruling in 1875 in the Minor versus Happersett case.  It says the following:


The opinion (written by Chief Justice Morrison Waite) first asked whether Minor was a citizen of the United States, and answered that she was, citing both the Fourteenth Amendment and earlier common law. Exploring the common-law origins of citizenship, the court observed that “new citizens may be born or they may be created by naturalization” and that the Constitution “does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens.” Under the common law, according to the court, “it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.”[


   This seems pretty clear to me and for the life of me I do not know why anyone in the Congress, Electoral College, or any of the Secretary of States across the country, did not show this to Obama or his people, when his name was being put on the ballot.  Also we know that the founders were very influenced by the writings of Emerich Vattel who also described in his book The Laws of Nations written in 1758 who was considered a natural Born Citizen.  In Chapter 19 page 219 he says the following:


  “The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights


   The media tries to say that the 14th Amendment has changed all this history and that to be considered Natural Born today you only need one parent to be a citizen at your birth, but that is not what the fourteenth amendment says at all.


Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.


  This is the clause that they use, but it says nothing about being a Natural Born Citizen just that if you are born on American soil that you would be considered a citizen at birth.  I have never disputed that Obama was a citizen at birth, just that he was not a Natural Born Citizen and there is a difference between the two. In fact he even admitted on his website fight the smears during his first campaign that he was a dual citizen at birth of both the US and Kenya, which would no doubt disqualify him as being a Natural Born Citizen.  You have also said that you were a dual citizen at birth, meaning your citizenship was split between Canada and the US.  I believe Rubio is in a similar situation and I am going to write a letter to him as well explaining all of this.

   I have never questioned your patriotism for this country and think you are a great person to have in Congress. You are a Constitutionalist first and foremost and we need more of those types of people, now more than ever, as this country sits on the edge of total collapse.  But the fact that you do respect the Constitution so much should make you want to follow it to the letter and that is main reason for this letter.  You know that you are not a Natural Born Citizen, based on the definition that the founders put in the Constitution.

    I am asking you to have some integrity, unlike almost all the other politicians we have in this country and drop out of the race.  If you dropped out of the race and explained to the media that the reason you are dropping out is, because by definition you are not considered Natural Born, based on the fact that you were born in Canada and your father was not a US citizen at the time of your birth, maybe they will take notice.  If you can explain this in a clear and concise way to the American people, maybe someone will say that Obama does not meet the definition either and we can stop him before this country is completely destroyed.  You may have more influence in the country by dropping out, then if you stay and actually became president someday, or lost the election.

  Finally, since my loyalties are first to God, family, and then country I know that this country was based on the rule of law, instead of the rule of men.  I will follow what it says in the Constitution first and foremost and to me that is much more important, than any loyalty to one man or office.   Even if you should win the nomination I will not vote for you based on this one issue alone, because the Constitution forbids me from voting for someone who is not eligible. I am asking you to do the right thing, so I do not have to make that choice and hopefully will be able to vote for someone who is eligible and can beat Hillary or whoever the democratic nominee is.  I am not going to be like the rest of the Republicans or Conservatives who will vote for you just, because you are a good conservative and not care about what the constitution says. 


Thanks for your time.

      No matter what one thinks of their politics, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are NOT constitutionally eligible. And the two major political party lawyers Katyal and Clement can spin and put out disinformation to lend support to constitutionally ineligible people in both major parties, but they cannot change the original intent, meaning, and understanding of who is a “natural born Citizen” which comes from Natural Law and not man-made laws or acts of Congress. A “natural born Citizen” is a person born in the country to parents who are both Citizens of the country when their child is born. Dual citizens at birth due to one or more of the parents not being a U.S. Citizen when their child is born are not natural born Citizens and thus are not constitutionally eligible to be President and CincC of our military. Both major political parties are out to dilute and abrogate the original intent, meaning, and understanding of the term “natural born Citizen” in Article II of our Constitution and why it was put there. Being simply ‘born a Citizen’ was proposed and not accepted. The founders and framers added the adjective “natural”. And that adjective comes from Natural Law. Adjectives mean something. Look up the meaning of the adjective “natural” when it comes to legal meaning in front of a noun. A “natural born Citizen” gains their citizenship from the Laws of Nature, not any man-made action of Congress. Natural born Citizens don’t need an act of Congress to point to be recognized as U.S. Citizens. See section 212 of this legal treatise on the Principles of Natural Law which was written in 1758 Vattel, the 1775 edition which was edited and published by Dumas and was much used by the founders and framers: Read: and and CDR Kerchner (Ret) –
