Ted Cruz for President?

In Constitution on March 23, 2015 at 3:03 pm

Ted Cruz for President of the United States or of Canada?  For such a long speech about running for President of the United States of America it seems odd that he omitted that he was born in Calgary Canada.  Just because we have one who Kenya Claims a birth right to, doesn’t mean we are ready to completely abandon the constitution. He sites a little known law from FDR that allows him to run and become our next President.  The Nationality Act of 1940 states:

The law revised “the existing nationality laws of the U.S. into a more complete nationality code”; it defined those persons who were “eligible for citizenship through birth or naturalization” and clarified “the status of individuals and their children born or residing in the continental U.S., its territories such as Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Philippines, Panama and the Canal Zone, or abroad.”  The law furthermore defined who was not eligible for citizenship, and how citizenship could be lost or terminated.

Does a President even FDR have the right to redefine the Constitution without the States ratifying it?  Chester A Arthur was said to have been born in Canada so Cruz would be our Second President from our friends to the North.

The Constitution sets out three eligibility requirements to be President: one must be 35 years of
age, a resident “within the United States” for 14 years, and a “natural born Citizen.” There is no
Supreme Court case which has ruled specifically on the presidential eligibility requirements
(although several cases have addressed the term “natural born” citizen), and this clause has been
the subject of several legal and historical treatises over the years, as well as more recent litigation.
The term “natural born” citizen is not defined in the Constitution, and there is no discussion of the
term evident in the notes of the Federal Convention of 1787. The use of the phrase in the
Constitution may have derived from a suggestion in a letter from John Jay to George Washington
during the Convention expressing concern about having the office of Commander-in-Chief
“devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen,” as there were fears at that time about wealthy
European aristocracy or royalty coming to America, gaining citizenship, and then buying and
scheming their way to the presidency without long-standing loyalty to the nation. At the time of
independence, and at the time of the framing of the Constitution, the term “natural born” with
respect to citizenship was in use for many years in
the American colonies, and then in the states,
from British common law and legal usage. Under the common law principle of
jus soli
(law of the
soil), persons born on English soil, even of two alien parents, were “natural born” subjects and, as
noted by the Supreme Court, this “same rule” was applicable in the American colonies and “in the
United States afterwards, and continued to prevail under the Constitution …” with respect to
citizens. In textual constitutional analysis, it is understood that terms used but not defined in the
document must, as explained by the Supreme Court, “be read in light of British common law”
since the Constitution is “framed in the language of the English common law.”

Ted Cruz for President?  Yes, John McCain wasn’t born in the United States but in the Territory of Panama while his father served in the Military.  Barack Obama’s Grandmother showed the site in Kenya where she claims he was born.  Obama produced a new type of birth Certificate not used till years after he was born, showing that he was born in Hawaii, Whatever.  All in All, here we go again.

Next Speaker Please

In Constitution on January 3, 2015 at 9:09 pm

boehner-cryingJohn Boehner may not have such as easy vote this term for the Speakership.  In 1923, progressive Republicans refused to support the Republican Conference nominee for Speaker, Frederick Gillett (MA), on the floor.    Twenty progressive Republicans scattered their votes, which led to 8 inconclusive speakership ballots over 2 days.  Finally, the Republican leadership caved and met the progressives’ demands, and the progressives swung their votes to Gillett on the ninth ballot and elected him.  Two years later, after the regular Republicans added enough members to constitute a majority of the chamber, the Republican leadership, led by new Speaker Nicholas Longworth.  Nick used his power to make the Republicans a strong and vibrant party.  As the Son in law of Theodore Roosevelt and the Sitting Congressman from Taft’s district he had a lot of power.

Today we don’t have anyone with this type of Sub-Power in the Republican Party.  These Congressman have pledged to not support John Boehner for the Speakership on January 6, 2015 when the vote comes to the floor.

If just 25 more republicans withhold their support Speaker Boehner will be in trouble and a open Speaker-ship race could emerge.  Will the Democrats get smart and throw a few votes to Boehner, and give him the power to punish the conservatives in the party?  Will Trey Gowdy finally rise to power?  Will former Speaker Boehner get to play as much golf as he does today?  Will President Obama Invite him to play more Golf?  Who Cares what their golf game is like it’s time to replace and reform all of Congress.

Here are the men of fortitude how have offered up their votes early.  These are so far the Statesman the country has been seeking.

 

  • North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones
  • Representative Tom Massie (R-Ky.)
  • Republican Representative Gary Palmer (R-Ala.)
  • Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.)

 

If you don’t see your Congressman listed here, Call yours and give your opinion.  We elected our congress to support our wishes.  Here is the first test of 2015!

Stopping Obama

In Constitution, Executive order, Obama, President obamas Cabinet, Uncategorized on January 1, 2015 at 11:55 pm

Stopping Obama the Ruling President!  How will the Senate, Congress or Courts stop a Ruling President from just declaring any law he wishes?  At any moment he can do exactly what the founding fathers had tried so hard to prevent in the United States of America, a Dictator style of leadership.  We are a country of compromises, and usually both sides are dissatisfied.  The Democrats should be as worried as the Republicans and Independents.  What will happen if Sarah Palin had the same power?  Every Democrat and liberal reporter would be up in arms as a President Palin bypassed Congress and the American People and did what ever they wished by Czar, Executive Order or Presidential decree.   It’s the process of how we are forced as each Executive order is decreed,  that should scare Americans.  It’s not up the the President to threaten congress with his choice of what to do, and then just force a New Signature based law upon the American People.   Harry Reid will be screaming if a President Palin just signed every choice of hers onto the American People.  But as Majority leader Mr. Reid has been a willing accomplice to President Obama.  Was Obama Care really worth throwing out 230 years of Senate Rule?  Will Closing Gitmo by Presidential Pardons really make the world Safer in the eyes of our enemies? Are Cuba and the Castro regime worth bypassing the Senate on foreign affairs?  (For those to young they aimed Russian Nukes at the United States).   Will we bail out Venezuela when they tank their economy, while hurting their people.

Stopping Obama must be done within the rules of law.  Where is the free Press?  They are a willing accomplice to get their view of the world not the other way around.  Turn off those networks that do not cover the IRS Scandal, Golf Gate, Illegal Immigrants flooding the boarders, Benghazi hidden agenda that caused 4 Americans to Die.  Where was the President on that night?  Why doesn’t the Press push for an answer?

Stopping Obama, Oprah supported him, and asked her followers to vote for this man.  Oprah still has a following and is regarded as one of the greatest Americans of her time.  In 6 years how many people can still say they support President Obama and his policies.  He keeps telling people what they want to hear, or as it used to be called, The President is lying.  Where is Oprah Now with the Obama’s?  Where are the other Liberal Elites who asked for Americans to Vote for him?

The Fable of the Emperors new cloths tells of a boy who believed his own eyes as his King ran around naked in front of everyone who told him he looked great.  Well, Open your eyes America.

The Courts must prevent an activist President from fundamentally “bringing Change to America” by Executive Order.  It is unconstitutional and must be brought before Supreme Court.

If every person who reads this would just contact their own congressman and voice their opinion it would be a start to the people taking control.

 

 

Elian Gonzelaz to deliver Cuban Cigars

In Constitution, Executive order, Obama on December 18, 2014 at 1:08 am

Elian Gonzelaz to deliver Cuban Cigars now that Obama has given the Okay for Cuban Cigars to be brought into the US.  We spent millions to deport one scared little boy years ago back into the hands of a cruel dictatorship.  In one  sweeping Presidential Edict the President has made Cuba our newest friend.

So smoke up everyone, it’s time to let the Cuban Masters beat more cigars out of the citizenry of Cuba.  Castro has won! Kennedy should be turning over in his grave about now.   Obama has yelled surrender one more time and this time it comes with Prizes.  Yes, Congress will huff and puff but no one will do anything.   Maybe President Obama can light his first delivered Cigar on the Eternal Flame that sits over our dead President.  Why not, he hasn’t cared what any of the other Presidents have stood for.

So, Elian…. Bring us some Fine Cuban Cigars

 

How to expidite the return of Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi

In Constitution, Executive order, Obama on August 4, 2014 at 2:45 pm

After 101 days in Mexican prison, Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi arrives for day in court. Enough Already. We are using planes, train’s and buses to move around thousands of illegal children from Latin countries. Move them all to the Tijuana border and start moving them through the gates till this marine is returned. We are dealing with hundreds of thousands of illegal Mexicans and Hondurans. We want the return of a single American Citizen. Flood the Tijuana border with their own people. The gates are open. Slow down all traffic in and out of Tijuana till Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi is returned. Once the Mexican Government, figures out that they will pay a price of NO Americans with their money and Way to Many Children to feed, house and support they will figure out a solution to return our Marine. President Obama can do this with his pen. Just like he had done everything else.

USA Taxes for Mosques

How can the Obama Administration justify the building and fixing of Mosques in Egypt and Syria when the separation of Church and State forbids it?  Yes your tax dollars are at work, providing new buildings, construction on Mosques and computer services?  WHY?  HOW?  Try getting the Obama Administration to build a playground at a local church.  Still happy with your vote?

Contract with America II

In Constitution, Obama, President obamas Cabinet on September 23, 2010 at 1:28 pm

“The Pledge to America” offered up by House Republicans is dead on arrival if moderate republicans are allowed to vote with the Obama Administration.  How will Republicans keep Senators such as Olympia Snow Or John McCain from voting with the Liberals when the time comes.

Attention Representatives, it’s not this paper your signing that is for America it’s your votes and conduct in office that will determine if you deserve reelection!

The President can paint, But can he lead?

On this 9/11 our President has chosen to provide labor as a painter of a school, while our nation suffers.

9/11 should be a reminder that it is only a strong nation and national leadership that can get us through these horrible times that radial Muslims are so bent are delivering to the United States.

If Osama Bin Laden should choose to attack again, he will be thrilled to see that our president can paint between the lines and keep the colors where they are needed.  President Obama has failed on another campaign promise of hunting Bin Laden down and bringing him to justice.

The rest of the country however should take a long hard look at how we are being led and where this so called leadership, (Speeches and Painting) will take us in the future.

While a Mosques is being readied on what Muslims would consider conquered ground, and Iran plans to go Nuclear we need leadership and direction.

Next time you enter a voting booth the choice will be yours. More  paint in the proper lines or a new direction with leadership.  Vote carefully, your lives depend on it.

9/11 so much already forgotten.  “Lets Roll“.

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen

In Climate Change, Constitution, Obama, President obamas Cabinet on November 30, 2009 at 3:46 am

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen- COP 15.

Look Out!  Here they come.

“Climate change is a terrible threat, but beating climate change is a historic opportunity to turn humanity onto a path of sustainable growth for everyone. The solutions to climate change will vitalize economies, stabilize environments, and build secure, fairer, more innovative societies. Not only must we act, it makes no sense not to act.”  From the website http://unfccc.int/2860.php

How and who decided the word FAIRER?

“fight to prevent climate disaster”       “global threat of climate change” ” fair and effective deal on climate change”
Change? Where have I seen that word used alot before?  Oh yes it is what President Obama ran on just before he started dismantling our constitution.  Wake up people  Fair, and Disaster somehow are going to cost you more money.

Will the Next Edmund G Ross please stand up?

Will the Next Edmund G Ross please stand up?  As the only Senator to vote against the impeachment of Andrew Johnson, Senator Ross defied his parties filibuster proof majority and saved the nation.  How?  By defying his party he kept the 3 branches of government intact.  Yes all the senate knew the day of the vote they could control a branch of government.  But just like today, a man of conscious rose above politics and saved us from ourselves.

Is there no senator who knows better in his heart that his Healthcare bill is going to hurt the country financially?  Is not one of them aware that throwing money at the problem will not fix anything?  Just look at the debacles you have given us so far.  Cash for Clunkers, Stimulus, H1N1 vaccine allotments, Housing bust and Tarp!

The Louisiana purchase alone should be enough to each of you from voting.  It is wrong that one state will be given additional services at the expense of others for a vote.

Where is a Senator of Principal?  Where is the next Senator Ross.  It’s not to late.  Think before you vote to destroy our way of life.
