Ted Cruz Quotes
Is there a legitimate case to be made that Ted Cruz is ineligible to run for
President of the United States because he is not a natural-born American
citizen? Yes, there is a surprisingly strong case, which I will first lay out
a summarized form, then discuss in more detail. As we will see, Dr. Laurence
Tribe, the eminent Harvard Law professor who taught Ted Cruz the Constitution,
has pointed out that, according to Cruz's own originalist interpretation of the
Constitution, he is not a natural-born American citizen and therefore is
eligible to become President. He should be running for Prime Minister of Canada!
Here are nine reasons Ted Cruz
should NOT be running for
(1) Rafael "Ted" Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and is thus a natural-born
Canadian citizen according to the American Constitution as it was
written in 1789.
(2) Should the United States accept a foreign birth certificate as evidence in a
presidential election? What if the birth certificate were
Russian, Chinese, Iranian, Syrian or North Korean? This is a
(3) Ted Cruz's father was, according to his own admission, an arsonist,
gunrunner, recruiter and
fundraiser for Fidel Castro and the Cuban Communists.
(4) Ted Cruz's father was not an American citizen at the time Cruz was born; his
father instead elected to become a Canadian citizen. He abandoned his family
before emigrating back to the United States.
(5) Ted Cruz's mother also appears on a Canadian voter registration list,
suggesting that she too became a Canadian citizen.
(6) So it seems there is a much stronger case for Ted Cruz to be a natural-born
Canadian citizen, than to be eligible to run for President of the United States.
(7) At the time Ted Cruz shut down the American government, he was still a
Canadian citizen. Is it kosher for citizens of other nations to shut down our
government and imperil our people?
(8) Can we trust the loyalty of Ted Cruz, really? Why has he never formally
renounced his right, as the son of a native-born Cuban, to become a citizen of
(9) Ironically, the person who should be arguing longest and loudest against a
natural-born Canadian running for the American presidency is none other than Ted
Cruz himself, according to the professor who taught him the Constitution!
Rafael Eduardo Cruz is a strict originalist when it comes to the Constitution that
he claims to cherish so much. But when the American Constitution and Bill of
Rights were written, a "natural born" citizen was someone born within a nation's
borders or its territories' borders. Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada and is
therefore a natural-born Canadian according to an originalist interpretation of
the Constitution. While it is possible to argue that times have changed and
"natural-born citizen" means something different today, Ted Cruz is, very
ironically, the most ardent insister that the Constitution must be interpreted
as it was originally written and intended!
Eric Posner, a professor at the University of Chicago Law School and the author
of The Twilight of International Human Rights Law, has succinctly
explained Ted Cruz's hypocrisy: "Cruz, whose campaign website has a section
headed 'RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION,' believes that the Supreme Court has gone
astray by refusing to enforce the original understanding of the Constitution."
If he's right, then he's not eligible for the presidency. Cruz's tutor on the Constitution, the eminent Harvard Law professor
Laurence Tribe, agrees, pointing out that according to Cruz's own originalist interpretation
of the Constitution, he cannot be considered a "natural born" citizen. Tribe
has accused Cruz of "constitutional hypocrisy" for his wishy-washy way of claiming
that it says whatever he prefers at the moment. Tribe said it is legally
"unsettled" whether Cruz can run for president, because no court has ruled on
the matter, but according to Cruz's own interpretation, he is ineligible.
Is Ted Cruz an "anchor baby" and a "chain migrationist" and possibly a Cuban double agent? Why, when his father
was trying to join Fidel Castro and the Communist revolutionaries in the hills
of Cuba, did he suddenly abandon the war for independence, sew money into his underwear and sail to the United
States to attend college? Doesn't it seem strange that a man who has confessed
to being a cell leader, recruiter, gunrunner and arsonist would suddenly abandon
the quest of a lifetime to meekly attend classes in another country? ... Unless
he was part of an even bigger plot: to put a Castro sympathizer in the White
Should we call Ted Cruz "Castro's Revenge"? Is this why Cruz keeps
trying to shut down
the American government? Did the immense internal pressure he put on our government
help lead to the end of economic sanctions against Cuba? Did Cruz cripple the
U.S. government so that Cuba could earn billions once economic sanctions were
And did Cruz give us a smirking clue when he was asked to pick a presidential
code name? He chose "Cohiba," which seems very odd for an American president. I
did some research, and I found this clue on a definition page for Cohiba: "The
word Cuaba, which sounds a lot like Cohiba, is another old Taino Indian word for
a highly flammable bush they used to make torches." Is the crafty and
clever Cruz secretly laughing at us: Cohiba, Cuaba, Cuba!
What gall, to choose "Cuba" as his Secret Service code name! Is he telling us
that Cuba will "torch" the United States, with his assistance? Does he think
we're too dumb to figure out his double-agent-code-speak?
Here's another BIG clue: as a boy Ted Cruz was called
Felito, which looks and sounds a lot like Fidelo, the diminutive form of Fidel. Felito is a form of Felix, so I did some research and in the book
Soldier of Rome (page 121), I found this: "Felix is a noble name, it means
Fidelity." So there you have it: Felito means Fidelity, which once again leads
us back to Fidel Castro! Are Americans ready for a Cuban-Canadian president
nicknamed after Fidel Castro? Is his nickname a pledge of fidelity to Fidel?
Where are the birthers when we need them? How can Rafael Cruz be allowed
to steal the American presidency when it's quite possible that he was planted here by Fidel Castro as revenge for
the Bay of Pigs and for JFK keeping nuclear missiles out of Cuba?
Why hasn't Ted Cruz formally
renounced his claim to Cuban citizenship? Is he keeping the door ajar now, in
order to fling it wide open the day he takes the oath of office: to godless
Should Americans be forced to accept a foreign birth certificate as evidence in
an American presidential election? What if the nation in question were Russia,
China, North Korea or Iran? Wouldn't putting our faith and trust in foreign
documents leave us at the mercy of our enemies?
Incredibly and ironically, as the New York Daily News recently pointed
out: "The proven,
accepted, verified circumstances of
Cruz’s birth in Canada to an American mother and Cuban father are [exactly] the
same circumstances the birther movement made up and claimed disqualified Obama!"
And as Josh Earnest recently pointed out: "It would be quite ironic, after seven
or eight years of drama over the President's birth certificate, if Republican
voters were to choose Senator Cruz as their nominee: somebody who actually
wasn't born in the United States and only eighteen months ago renounced his
And he still hasn't renounced his Cuban birthright.
The world's most famous and energetic birther, Donald Trump, has opined that Ted
Cruz's right to run for president is "very precarious" due to "the fact that he
was born in Canada and he has had a double passport." Trump also noted: "When we
all studied our history lessons, you're supposed to be born in this country."
Later, having firmly put on his thinking cap, Trump flatly told ABC's Jon Karl: "He can't be president." Trump
then tweeted his condolences: "Sadly,
there is no way that Ted Cruz can continue running in the Republican Primary
unless he can erase doubt on eligibility. Dems will sue!"
And―ya gotta love the irony!―it turns out that Ted
Cruz's father is a birther who in 2012 told a Tea Party group
that President Obama should go "back to Kenya." Of course that means his
should go back to effin' Cuba, or effin' Canada! Perhaps Ted "Carnival" Cruz
should summer in Canada and winter in Cuba, like a duck!
And the irony gets even more delicious, as Ted Cruz
himself is a birther who disqualified himself in 2012 when he
said: "Obama's mother's citizenship is irrelevant since his father wasn't
American and he wasn't born in America." Cruz later flip-flopped after deciding
to become the first Cuban-and/or-Canadian president: "All you need to know about
my parentage is my mother was a citizen. My father and place of birth are
irrelevant." What hypocrisy and arrogance! Why isn't what's good for a
Canadian goose also good for a Kenyan gander?
But is the Canadian goose now cooked?
Here are the facts ... c'mon birthers, do your civic duty! ...
Rafael Bienvenido Cruz y Diaz, is a native-born Cuban who says he fought on the
side of Fidel Castro and the communist resistance: leading a cell, throwing
firebombs, running guns and recruiting. But despite being a cell leader and
recruiter, he claims "not to have known" that his fellow insurrectionists were
communists! And oddly, when approached in Ohio and asked to clarify the reason
for his 1957 arrest, Mr. Cruz responded: "I'll have to think about it. I don't
quite remember." He offered to be interviewed again at an event that same night,
but instead had the reporter ejected. Very odd indeed! All we know, with any
certainty, is that he supported Castro, recruited for Castro, blew things up for
Castro, marched in parades for Castro, tried to join Castro in the hills to
fight with the rebels ... but then for some strange reason sewed cash into his
underwear and rushed over to the United States. Now he "can't remember." It all
sounds very suspicious, doesn't it? Was his mission improbable the same as the
Kenyan plot to put Barack Obama in power?
And what about Rafael Cruz's son? Well, the honest birthers should have a field
day. First, Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada, in 1970. He became a Canadian
citizen at birth, simply by being born on Canadian soil, due to Canada's
birthright law. Second, Rafael Cruz did not obtain his U.S. citizenship until
35 years after the birth of his
son, which is very suspiciously the year his son
reached the presidential age of eligibility! Third, Ted Cruz's mother and father both appeared on Canadian voting rolls
in 1974. Fourth, Rafael Cruz has admitted taking Canadian
citizenship. Did his wife join him, explaining her appearance in the Canadian
voting rolls? Fifth, Ted Cruz only renounced his Canadian citizenship in 2014, at
age 44, obviously because he thought it would be an issue in the upcoming
American presidential election. Sixth, Ted Cruz cannot prove the circumstances
of his birth with an American birth certificate. Should Americans accept
evidence of foreign origin when the presidency hangs in the balance?
Can a Canadian citizen run for the American presidency? The American
Constitution says that an American president must be a "natural born" American
citizen. So where are all the Republican birthers, who opposed the election of
President Barack Obama on the basis that he was not born in the United States
and/or that his father was not a natural-born American citizen? Donald Trump has
questioned whether Ted Cruz is a "natural born" American citizen. Carly Fiorina
has asked why Cruz waited until the proverbial last minute to renounce his
Canadian citizenship, which does seem very odd. Rand Paul has called Cruz a "natural-born
Canadian citizen" and has asked if a child can be naturally born
with two different citizenships. Does being born in Canada and holding a
Canadian citizenship from birth to middle age disqualify Cruz from becoming the
American president? Only the Supreme Court can say for sure, and there has never
been a ruling on this matter to date. Furthermore,
is Ted Cruz still a Cuban citizen, since his father was apparently Cuban citizen
at the time of his birth and neither Cruz nor his father have ever renounced
their claims to Cuban citizenships? Was renouncing their Canadian citizenships just an
artful dodge to disguise their true allegiance to Communist Cuba?
And last but perhaps not least, are Americans willing to accept a non-American
birth certificate as "proof" of a person's claims in a presidential election?
What if the birth certificate were Kenyan, Cuban, Russian, Iranian or North
Where are the honest birthers when we need them?
Ted Cruz: Questions of Character and (Perhaps) Sanity
Questions of birth and citizenship aside, why do so many people who know Cruz
call him a "creep," a "nightmare" and other similar terms? Why is it generally
agreed that Cruz is "the most loathed person in American politics"? The main
complaint about Ted Cruz in political circles seems to be that he is all about
Ted Cruz, and not about the American people or the nation they comprise.
“It’s not what he’s trying to accomplish or what he says he’s trying to
accomplish that bothers people,” former McConnell chief of staff Josh Holmes
told The Washington Post. “It’s that he’s consistently sacrificed the
mutual goals of many for his personal enhancement.”
“He is incapable of delivering anything but theater,” another
Ted Cruz likes to be center stage. He grabs the limelight not by accomplishing
good things, but by claiming the "high ground" of being the most extreme
conservative. But Ronald Reagan was nowhere near as extreme as Toxic Ted Cruz. The
elder Bush was nowhere near as extreme as Cruz. Even George W. Bush and Dick
Cheney were not as extreme as Cruz. Being an extremist for the sake of being
extreme is not a virtue. Hitler was an extremist. Mussolini was an extremist.
Stalin was an extremist. Being on the lunatic fringe is not a virtue, except to
So there are at least three very important questions about Ted Cruz: (1) Does he
care more about "looking good" than he does about the American people? (2) Is he
more about theater than getting things done? What has he actually accomplished?
(3) Is he such an extremist that he is irrational? For instance, Cruz has said
that as president he would carpet bomb the Middle East to see if the sands will
"glow" at night. That sounds like carpet-bombing with nukes. Every American and
Israeli general and military expert who has spoken publicly about Cruz's
statement has pointed out that carpet bombing is immoral, a war crime, and a
terrible military strategy. Carpet bombing would kill large numbers of
civilians, including completely innocent children and their mothers. Only a
madman would suggest such a terrible thing. Is Ted Cruz insane?
"Holy Cruzaders, Batman! Ted Cruz is running for president, bragging about
spanking his five-year-old daughter for not speaking the truth, and yet lying
like a dog himself! He gives me the creeps! What can we do?"
"Not much, Robin, unfortunately! Holy Cruzaders seem to be running the show in
the United States these days! Personally, I think they're a bigger threat than
criminals who are at least honest about their motives and intentions! Give me
the Joker or the Riddler any day of the week!"
