RUBIO IS NOT ELIGIBLE AND GOWDY KNOWS IT.

rubio untitledpppp

Gowdy is now declaring that Marco who was born in 1971 to Cuban nationals that did not become citizens of the US until 1975 qualifies little anchor baby Rubio to meet the qualifications of presidential citizenship.

This is absurd and a total shredding of the constitutional requirements.

They were not citizens.  If Marco’s father  or mother would have committed a crime and been arrested, let’s say in 1973…he or she would have been deported back to Cuba for he was not a US citizen, nor under US jurisdiction.  ICE would have deported either one back to Cuba for prosecution.  So how in the world does this meet constitutional requirements at the time he was born?  It does not.

Enough said.  This is just one more slap in the face of the informed American.

This issue has been hashed and hashed and no one is conforming to the actual law here. Are we going to resolve to an anything goes mentality? A lopsided lawlessness that can pick and choose who abides and who does not?  Both Rubio and Cruz are not eligible.  That is the law of the constitution.

  1. If ever there was a litmus test for the “media”! Allowing for the bias, “media” SHOULD in its’ “anti-republican[t]) dogma, jump ALL OVER a story like macro rubio’s “birther issues”. If they don’t, it tells me that they are involved in yet again corrupting an election. But this time it would favor a “republican(t)”? Mr. Trump is decimating their designs by sheer presence! I can’t wait until he really starts to TRY!!! TRUMP 2016! HE’S NOT FOR SALE!!

      1. Cruz’s mother had become a Canadian and her husband too became Canadian citizens. His birth certificate is Canadian birth certificate. Ted has not produced any papers showing that his mother went to the US Consulate in Canada to fill out the forms declaring Ted as a US citizen. Therefore at the time, he was born in Canada to Canadian parents and received a Canadian birth certificate. His mother and father did not become US citizens again until 2005. Ted would have to show his dual citizenship papers.

        The issue is less where he was born and more who he was born to. He wasn’t born to US citizens so he can’t be a “natural born citizen”, However, he was born in the U.S. so he is a citizen according to the screwed up interpretation of the “slavery amendments”. Vattel’s The Law of Nations explains this, but during translation from French to English it got screwed up between natives and naturals so you have to look at the French version to get the true meaning.

        Cruz admitted himself his Communist Castro supporting father was a terrorist who threw MOLOTOV Cocktails at supporters of Babtista, who by the way the U.S. supported.
        Had Cruz’es father been an Arab, certainly we would still be hearing Terrorist.
        That’s exactly what CRUZ’ES FATHER WAS a terrorist.
        Cruz admits his father’s supporters then bribed Cuban
        officials in order to emigrate here.
        Was being an American real important to this Castro supporting communist molotov throwing terrorist?
        No, it wasn’t first The terrorist got a citizenship in Canada
        then Years later, Sen. Cruz was born a Canadian Citizen and stayed one for close to 40 years.
        The Senator’s terrorist father, just like Rubio’s foreign parents didn’t value American citizenship too much.
        It took both those Senators’ foreign born folks almost 18 years to WANT AN AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP.
        Now Cruz is certainly not responsible for his terrorist father having thrown molotov cocktails at Cubans our government SUPPORTED but there are even more important issues.
        If our Founders did in fact, intend foreign born children of American citizens or children born of foreigners with allegiance to another nation until they are actually naturalized to be eligible for the presidency as Natural born citizens and then, in the case of Rubio to be American Citizens at birth much less Eligible for even the Senate
        Why when the Constitution was ratified and even before that were Tories deprived of their property, businesses, harrassed and treated as enemies and or foreigners even if they did not fight for the English but only did not recognize any sovereignty but the King of England?
        We are discussing colonists who were often brothers, sons, fathers of the Americans made citizens by virtue of their allegiance not to The King but to the democratic processes put forth and defined as The Sovereignty of the United States of America?
        The same people born in Georgia, Virginia, Massachussetts or any of the other 13 states which comprised our newly formed nation
        Yes, the same land but as with the royalist or tories who did not support the very liberal ideas of owing their allegiance to a newly formed nation without a king based on liberal ideas that were try revolutionary.
        There are documents after documents that exist detailing the injustices these Tories passed by our founders as deserving citizenship and the founders who believed even though they were not Americans, they deserved certain rights necessary in order for trading and business to thrive and continue.
        If in fact those born on the same soil as George Washington did not inherit imaginary rights of U.S. citizenship , nor were required to be naturalized.
        Does it make sense a Canadian born son of a terrorist and American woman would not be natural born and a son of foreigners born in the US could be no different than the Tories?

      Despite the happenstance of a birth across the border, there is no question that Senator Cruz has been a citizen from birth and is thus a “natural born Citizen” within the meaning of the Constitution. Indeed, because his father had also been resident in the United States, Senator Cruz would have been a “natural born Citizen” even under the Naturalization Act of 1790. Similarly, in 2008, one of the two major party candidates for President, Senator John McCain, was born outside the United States on a U.S. military base in the Panama Canal Zone to a U.S. citizen parent.16×

        People keep confusing naturalization with “natural born”. Naturalization is what happens to immigrants as defined in the Naturalization Act of 1790. “Natural born” is what happens to people born to citizen parents. These terms are NOT interchangeable. To make things less confusing think of “natural born” as an inherited right passed from the parents to the child. Obviously, parents not citizens can’t pass along “natural born citizenship” even if the child becomes a citizen by birth in the U.S. Refer to Vittal’s The Law of Nations, French version.

    Although I personally disagree with the fact that anchor babies can obtain American citizenship, that is a problem that can only be solved by a change to the Constitution of the United States. However, neither Rubio, nor Cruz, nor Jindal were anchor babies, and you are absolutely incorrect as to the Presidential eligibility of Rubio and Cruz, and of Bobby Jindal.

    Here’s why:

    The United States of America recognizes two types of citizen, and two only, Citizen by Birth, and Naturalized Citizen. We do not have a third class, called “Natural Born Citizen.” A Citizen at Birth is a Natural Born Citizen.

    I should point out that the Birthers also claim that both Bobby Jindal and Marco Rubio are ineligible to the Presidency, but that assertion is totally false, as the case of US vs. Wong Kim Ark makes clear. Ironically, the Birthers claim to set great stock in the case of Wong Kim Ark, despite the fact that it destroys their arguments as to Jindal and Rubio.

    Our Founders were concerned that some foreigner, particularly some member of the European Aristocracy might immigrate to our new nation, become a citizen, then become President, resulting in a Commander-in-Chief of our military having foreign loyalties. Accordingly, they accepted John Jay’s suggestion, and limited Presidential eligibility to natural born citizens.

    But, the Founders did not define natural born citizen in the Constitution, nor anywhere else in our founding documents, nor in our law. Why would they not do so? Most likely, because they thought everyone else would have the same understanding of that term that they did. At the time our Constitution was written, anyone born to British parents in the colonies, was a natural born British subject. That’s because the English Law provided that the children of British subjects, born abroad, are natural born subjects. The case of Wong Kim Ark, which the Birthers put such stock in, explains this quite well, and the Court stated that:

    “The Constitution nowhere defines the meaning of these words (natural born citizen), either by way of inclusion or of exclusion, except insofar as this is done by the affirmative declaration that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.” In this as in other respects, it must be interpreted in the light of the common law, the principles and history of which were familiarly known to the framers of the Constitution.”

    And, under the British Common Law, as I’ve previously stated, a child of British subjects, born abroad (outside of England) was a natural born British subject. And, the Surpreme Court goes on to say, again in Wong Kim Ark:

    “There is no common law of the United States, in the sense of a national customary law, distinct from the common law of England as adopted by the several States each for itself, applied as its local law, and subject to such alteration as may be provided by its own statutes. . . . There is, however, one clear exception to the statement that there is no national common law. THE INTERPRETATION OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES IS NECESSARILY INFLUENCED BY THE FACT THAT ITS PROVISIONS ARE FRAMED IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE ENGLISH COMMON LAW, AND ARE TO BE READ IN THE LIGHT OF ITS HISTORY.”

    AND 

    “Natural-born British subject” means a British SUBJECT WHO HAS BECOME A BRITISH SUBJECT AT THE MOMENT OF HIS BIRTH.” Subject to the exceptions hereinafter mentioned, any person who (whatever the nationality of his parents) is born within the British dominions is a natural-born British subject. This rule contains the leading principle of English law on the subject of British nationality.”

    AND 

    “Nothing is better settled at the common law than the doctrine that the children, even of aliens, born in a country while the parents are resident there under the protection of the government and owing a temporary allegiance thereto, are subjects by birth.”

    AND 

    “Upon the Revolution, no other change took place in the law of North Carolina than was consequent upon the transition from a colony dependent on an European King to a free and sovereign [p664] State; . . . British subjects in North Carolina became North Carolina freemen; . . . and all free persons born within the State are born citizens of the State. . . . THE TERM ‘CITIZEN’ AS UNDERSTOOD IN OUR LAW, IS PRECISELY ANALAGOUS TO THE TERM ‘SUBJECT’ IN THE COMMON LAW, and the change of phrase has entirely resulted from the change of government. The sovereignty has been transferred from one man to the collective body of the people, and he who before as a “subject of the king” is now “a citizen of the State.”

    The Birthers will scream and shout that citizen and subject are two entirely different things, but as you can see from reading the Wong Kim Ark case, that’s a lie. The Supreme Court of the United States declares that the terms, “citizen” and “subject” are analogous.

    By virtue of his mother’s American citizenship, Ted Cruz became an American citizen at the moment of his birth. He has never needed to be naturalized, for that reason, and he was issued a United States Passport, when he was in high school. Ted Cruz is a citizen by birth, by virtue of being born, or a natural born citizen. And, he is certainly eligible to serve as President of the United States.

    There is No wiggle room or gray area here:

    Rubio was born on May 28, 1971 in Miami, Florida

    Rubio’s father did not become a US citizen until 1975, so it is completely impossible for Rubio to be a “natural born citizen”.

    This issue is Not complicated at all and very easy to understand. Our Framers understood the meaning of “natural born citizen” as clearly as we understand the meaning of pizza.

    “The only definition of “natural born citizen” that matters is the one held by the Founding Fathers!” – Leo C. Donofrio

    Our Framers used the law of Nations in DEFINING “natural born citizen”.

    Law of Nations, Book I, Ch. XIX, at §§ 212, is this:

    § 212: Natural-born citizens are those born in the country of parents who are citizens – it is necessary that they be born of a father who is a citizen. If a person is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.
