THE NEW REPUBLIC FORGOT SOMETHING in its LAME ATTEMPT to SMEAR SEN. CRUZ: The FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT!

This hit piece in the New Republic interested me very much for two reasons:  I admire Senator Cruz very much and came out early for him in the primary last year.  He’s a sovereignty guy and very good on liberty issues so far.

But I also am interested in the “native born” clause of the Constitution, so much so I have written a published law journal article (this is a pay site) on how it is possible that the Fourteenth Amendment has superseded the native born clause.

The New Republic did not discuss the Fourteenth Amendment implied repeal theory.  After all they quoted Cruz saying this:

As Cruz put it at the 2013 National Rifle Association convention last week in Houston: “The Constitution matters. All of the Constitution. It’s not pick and choose. It’s not take what part you like and get rid of the parts you don’t like. … Every word of the Constitution matters.”

Every word.  Including these:  “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States…”

Senator Cruz IS eligible to serve as President.  I’ll blog more in the next few days on this question.

    Mr. Sandy:

    I eagerly await your native-born vs. natural-born citizen blog.

    I am sure you are aware that Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution requires that to hold the office of POTUS, a citizen must be a NATURAL BORN Citizen.

    In 1875 the US Supreme Court in a precedent setting finding (Minor v. Happersett) defined a natural-born citizen as a person whose parents were both citizens at the time of birth and the person was born in the US.

    The findings of the Court were in substantial agreement with the writing of Vattel in The Law of Nations.

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
