Sen. Ted Cruz no longer Canadian

It’s official: Sen. Ted Cruz is no longer Canadian.

After some allegations were raised that the Texas Republican may not have been a true red-white-and-blue American, Mr. Cruz released his birth certificate to the Dallas Morning News last August. However, his attempt at transparency backfired when the news organization pointed out that he was born in Calgary, Alberta, to an American woman — a fact that likely made him a dual citizen.

Mr. Cruz was quick to say that he would renounce his Canadian citizenship.

“Now the Dallas Morning News says that I may technically have dual citizenship,” Mr. Cruz said in a statement in August 2013. “Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator; I believe I should be only an American.”

The senator wasn’t bluffing — the Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday that Mr. Cruz was officially only American. He received his “Certificate of Renunciation” from Canada on Tuesday, formally ending his dual citizenship.

    Cruz was told he had a problem. He didn’t deny it, he didn’t lie about it. He did what he could to solve it. He certainly wouldn’t be the first President to be born out of the physical bounds of the U.S.

  • I Seigel says:

    He can renounce his citizenship, but he can’t renounce his place of birth:
    Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution states:
    “No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President;…”

    Remember there was talk of amending the Constitution to allow then-Governor Schwarzenegger to run for president? I believe the same thing would have to be done in Mr. Cruz’ case. We’ll see….

      He was born to an American mother which makes him a natural born citizen. I have a brother and sister who were born in Italy where my father was stationed at the time. They are considered natural born citizens.

        2nd, that does not make oboma a natural born citizen, besides, just like hitler, oboma’s past is riddled with forgery and lies. Me, I want to check not only the blood work between him and his so called mother, I would like to have blood work done on the children, I don’t think they are his children. Just on the facts of oboma’s father being a Kenyan born citizen makes him ineligible, period.

        1. I Seigel says:

          And just the fact that Cruz’ father being Cuban, does that make him ineligible, period? Is that how it works?

          Ted Cruz – Cuban father, American mother, born in Canada = American citizen

          Barack Obama – Kenyan father, American mother, born “who gives a rat’s ass where” = American citizen.

          Doesn’t matter WHERE you’re born – if one parent is a US citizen, the child is a US citizen.

          So please stop the nonsense about Obama. Or you’ll have to admit that Cruz isn’t a citizen either, and also isn’t entitled to serve as president.

          You can’t have it both ways.

          1. ssilv48 says:

            I don’t want it both ways, did you read what I typed???? Cruz would be an illegal President also, but at least he is not a closet lying muslim, ovomit is illegal right this second, no way shape or form is ovomit even a citizen, I would like to see some blood work done on ovomit and his supposed mother, also his children. o will be known as the most deceived man ever brought upon any nation in the history of mankind.

            ahhhhhhh but we have no proof of him mother and where he was born Obama spent millions to hide all his records and also he got help as a foreign exchange student you cant do that if you are a citizen . he lied all his life and he is not Christian he lied he is muslim he says so in his own words there is a huge difference don’t mix apples and oranges.Cruz is not out to destroy us either thank god he spoke up and let us know what is happenin.g .

          3. I Seigel says:

            Obama’s mother is from Kansas. Back then, that was part of the United States. Not sure about now, though.

            Apparently it doesn’t matter where Obama was born. If either parent is American, that makes him an American. Ask Ted Cruz how it works.

            The law doesn’t say a president needs to be Christian, so get over it.

            The law doesn’t say a president can’t get help as a foreign exchange student, so get over it.

            Obama only has 2 years left to destroy us, so he better get started. Maybe he shouldn’t take a vacation; maybe he should stay in the White House so he can destroy us.

          4. ssilv48 says:

            4k, I like cruz and Rubio, but they like oboma are ineligible, period, buy, threaten all the judges you want, the Constitution of the United States is very clear and oboma can not be a President of the United States, now, he is illegally in our w/h

          5. ssilv48 says:

            Cruz, just like oboma and Rubio can not be a President of the United States, now like since 2008 you get criminal judges that will not listen to evidence which is an ACT of TREASON on any one of these people, you can have an illegal man sitting in our w/h, just like we have this very second, then you will have American taxpayers paying for the kayos going on all over the world,,,,,,OOOHHHH what a second, THAT’S WHAT WE HAVE RIGHT NOW. MAYBE THAT IS WHY OUR FOREFATHERS WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE HAD AN ACTUAL AMERICAN CITIZEN IN OUR HIGHEST OFFICE SO AMERICA WOULD NOT HAVE MUSLIMS MAKING AMERICAN LAWS TO MAKE AMERICAN CITIZENS FELONS. PLANE AND SIMPLE, oboma, cruz nor rubio can not be a President of the United States. Cruz and rubio just like oboma has a father that was not born in the United States, just that alone disqualifies all 3 of them

          6. I Seigel says:

            I am so very sad to inform you that neither the Constitution nor the forefathers mention anything about muslims in our highest office. Nor did they specify that the president had to be Christian.

            And, unfortunately, the law about “natural born citizen” has been interpreted many times by the courts to mean that only ONE parent has to be an American citizen, and they don’t specify which parent. Father OR mother citizen makes the child a citizen.

            We started having criminal judges only since 2008? Hmmm. I would have guessed it was a LOT earlier than that. Maybe even 8 years earlier? Can you name a few of these criminal judges? There must be a list somewhere. They’re not secret judges.

          I thought the children were adopted and Michele I have heard him say Michael and I are happy to be here.

          1. I Seigel says:

            The children were not adopted. He says that “Michelle and I are happy to be here.” He also begins speeches by saying, “My fellow Americans…”

        3. USA1st says:

          I was talking about Cruz not Obama.

    2. ssilv48 says:

      sig, well, right this second, America has a Kenyan born muslim in our highest office. That happened by a tremendous amount of treason and to date, all federal judges that were suppose to have brought up the real information on mr oboma are in Act of Treason and need a military trial espically the douche bag that stated ” Well, he flies on Air Force One, sooooo he must be a president, he did not do his job and needs to be tried for treason and held accountable.

      1. onwego4k says:

        Egypt has filed against Hillary and Obama for treason for Arab Spring aiding and abetting the enemy theirs and ours god bless them.

        1. I Seigel says:

          Please post a link to a news article about this. I have not seen any mention of this in the MSM

  • Judy Hammond Benson says:

    He’s a man that always does what he says! We need more politicians like Ted Cruz to take our country back.
