Senator Ted Cruz’s birther issue

Senator Ted Cruz’s birther issue

The bias news media in the United States is in full presidential election mode for 2016.  The bias media is telling us who to vote for by reading who they attack.  The latest one being attacked by the bias news media is Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz.

A column appearing in The Dallas Morning News on February 27, 2015 reprinted from The Los Angeles Times written by Doyle McManus, questions Senator Cruz’s place of birth.  The column illustrated Ted Cruz’s birth certificate stating he was born in Canada, not the USA.  This by some brings into question his eligibility to run for president of the USA.

When President Obama was running for president in 2008 the question of where he was born was an issue.  Yet the news media did not illustrate his birth certificate.  When Senator John McCain ran for president his birth certificate was not illustrated showing his birth in the nation of Panama, not the USA.

Article 2, Section 1 of the United States Constitution reads in part:

“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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

This article has enjoyed various interpretations and legislation since it’s ratification in 1788.  The one constant in this discussion is if a person is born of a mother who is an American citizen that child is an American citizen no matter where on this planet the birth happened.  Senator Ted Cruz is in compliance with Article 2, Section 1 of the United States Constitution. 

It is rather typical of the news media to resurrect this issue when in 2008 they labeled those who questioned President Obama’s place of birth as “birthers,” “right wing lunatics,” and other assorted insults.  However now the question arises with Senator Cruz, no such insults will apply to the new group of “birthers.”

Senator Ted Cruz is the subject of the bias news media attack basically for three reasons:
1 – He is Republican
2 – He is a conservative
3 – He is from Texas
