Trump supporters file lawsuit claiming Ted Cruz is not a natural born citizen and therefore cannot be President.

"Watch your ass, eh. There I said it in Canadian so you would understand it."
Courtesy of The Hill:  

Donald Trump supporters have filed a lawsuit challenging the eligibility of one of his primary rivals, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), to run for president. 

The lawsuit, filed Feb. 3 at a district court in Alabama, seeks a judgment “declaring that Rafael Edward Cruz is ineligible to qualify/run/seek and be elected to the Office of the President of the United States of America” due to his Canadian birth. 

Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada, to an American mother. 

Several of the five plaintiffs — Sebastian Green, Shannon Duncan, Kathryn Spears, Kyle Spears and Jerry Parker — are backing Trump in the Republican primary, their attorney, Thomas Drake, told The Hill, although he said others are still undecided. 

 "The only thing they can agree on is Mr. Cruz is not eligible to be president," Drake said.

Gee I wonder if Donald Trump has a team of investigators in Canada who "cannot believe what they're finding."

And for those who argue that these are Trump supporters and not Trump himself:

Personally I just love watching the Republicans eating their own.

    Trump is a dirty player and will do anything to win (betcha he deals in business the same way!).

    Americans that vote for the asshole are absolutely nuts should he be nominated by Republicans as their candidate.

    The guy is a racist, hateful, angry all the time and horribly reactive if he doesn't like something, get his way OR thinks someone doesn't like or respect him!

    He's a 'little' man in a overweight body and ugly in demeanor! I find him insecure as Hell and not worthy to be POTUS! He needs to go back to playing with his money and the majority of us wouldn't miss him one bit!

      Trump did the "birfer" shit with POTUS and he WAS a natural born. Ted Curz is NOT!
      He wasn't born here.
      How is it he served in Senate even? I have to agree with tRump on this but tRump will never be potus. Heck the RNC will drag McCain out of mothballs or grab Romney.
      Trump will never be potus of this great country.

      Ted Cruz is OK as to running for POTUS IF he were picked! He was born of an American mother. Trump would lose his case/suit if he actually felt insecure enough as to file it!

      I'd never vote for either one of them!

      Even if all of other factors are in Cruz's favor (his mother never renounced her US citizenship, etc.), if a CRBA form was not attached to Ted's birth certificate, he is not a natural born US citizen.

      "A child born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth if certain statutory requirements are met. The child’s parents should contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America (CRBA) to document that the child is a U.S. citizen. If the U.S. embassy or consulate determines that the child acquired U.S. citizenship at birth, a consular officer will approve the CRBA application and the Department of State will issue a CRBA, also called a Form FS-240, in the child’s name."

      Do you really believe there are people born abroad to US citizens who are considered natural born Americans even though we have no idea they exist?

    8. Anonymous9:36 AM

      8:02, Ted is not a natural born US citizen if his parents failed to file for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad or obtained a valid passport at the time of his birth. This can not be done retroactively. This is a time-frame involved to obtain either of these two things. Cruz has not produced the evidence.

    So basically Trump wants the Constitutional laws regarding birth eligibility exercised, ONLY if Ted watches his mouth.

    If Ted panders to Trump, then Trump will ignore the law, but if Ted dares to call it like it is, Trump will exercise the law.

    Presidential candidate Trump sounds like he'll use that Constitution when it suits him, and when it doesn't, he'll sweep things under the rug.

    How dishonest.

    One thing in this whole fight (between Trump and Cruz), I find that Cruz is an utter wimp in defending himself. He thinks showing restraint and smiling and suppressing any anger towards Trump's accusations is a 'he shoots, he scores!'

    What is Cruz so afraid of? Why doesn't he fight back? He has no problem using sly tactics with others. He is a real weasel. But, with Trump, he runs to the dog house with his tail between his legs.

    Trump Exposed As A Speed Tweaker: Suddenly His Megalomania Makes A Little More Sense

    ...Megalomaniac is another that comes to mind. No matter what way you look at The Donald, he definitely doesn’t qualify as “typical.”

    As it turns out, there may be a very good, very dangerous, very pharmaceutical reason for it. Gawker recently re-examined an article from 1992 that may have more to do with Donald Trump’s failures as a human being than the genes he inherited from his booze and hooker pimping grandfather.

    As it turns out, a story from Spy Magazine revealed that Trump was a patient of the infamous Dr. Joseph Greenburg, who was known for prescribing an amphetamine-like drug called Tenuate Dospan for a non-existent condition called “metabolic imbalance.” According to the story:

    Bill Maher Hilariously Rips Donald Trump’s Unemployment Lie To Shreds (VIDEO)

    ...Maher marveled at how ridiculous the claim is. Maher pondered what exactly an America with a 40% unemployment would look like. He mentions the horrific realities of the life during the Great Depression. During that dark time in the United States economic history, the unemployment rate was at its highest was 25 percent. Almost half of Trump’s claim. Maher asks:

    “Do you have any idea what America would look like with 40 percent unemployment? In the Great Depression, people were jumping out of windows and selling apples on the street.”

    Maher laid part of the blame for Trump and other Republican’s ability to get away with making such bold and obvious lies, with the media. He points out the lack of outrage in the media over the Supreme Court’s decision earlier this week to block most of President Obama’s new carbon emission rules, as an example.

    You can watch the segment below, in full.

    3. Anonymous9:57 AM

      That explains what Donald sees in Sarah. He may understand all the blabber and word salad. It makes perfect sense to him.

      Yep, Trump is in sync with leaving the the Army Sargent son to oversee all the weapons and arsenal strewn about the property at 1140 W Parks Hwy. It is their constitutional right to think an Army Sargent is the one who is a good caretaker for weapons and all the ammo. An Army Sargent would know top gun safety. Trump would be proud and respect the Palin judgment when it comes to having the weapons you need to hunt for food and protect yourself. Trump and Palin are like one and the same.

      I can't believe the media is not asking Trump more about important matters like home safety and guns. Would he vet the people who would be watching and responsible for his arsenal, or just any family member would do, or a privileged vet with PTSD and or alcohol problems? Trump seems to be saying he is fine with the alcohol problem vet with anger issues.

      Most of all Trump must keep up about the veterans. He kind of dropped them after that one big show when he wanted to be busy and not do that other thing with the other candidates. The vets need reality not some one trick pony show.

      He says he wanted to lead to discussion about the fate of returning veterans.
      Read more:

      How much leadership and discussion has Trump and Palin demonstrated since Trump urged Palin to talk about son's arrest? He claims he wanted to lead the discussion about the fate of returning veterans.

      He needs to just do it and not flake out like a Palin. He is going to look bad if he doesn't come through, Palin, also too.

    Some of the biggest Republican donors, who collectively have contributed tens of millions of dollars to shape the presidential race, are tightening their purse strings out of frustration with their inability to boost their favored candidates, or to slow Donald Trump.

    Rather than continuing to write huge checks to support the cluster of establishment candidates jockeying to emerge as the leading alternative to Trump, a billionaire real estate showman roundly despised by the GOP elite, these donors have mostly retreated to the sidelines. They’re watching anxiously, hoping that the field sorts itself out, according to interviews with a half dozen major donors or their representatives.

  16. Anonymous8:19 AM

That is the kind of suit which does have the possibility of going forward,” said University of California Professor Rick Hansen. Hansen runs the popular

    So, Trump, given that he is running against Ted Cruz, could make the argument that he is an injured party here because they are both listed on the ballot.

    “There’s at least an argument. It is not a slam dunk,” Hansen told

    Eric Posner, a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, recently wrote an article on arguing that Cruz is not a natural born citizen. “The natural way to obtain citizenship, then, was (and is) by being born in this country. Because Cruz was not “natural born”—not born in the United States—he is ineligible for the presidency, under the most plausible interpretation of the Constitution,” Posner wrote.

      You'd have to ask the Sanders campaign about what they do with pics on their website.

      There's no question the assertion of the photographer who was there who has photographic evidence ( link above) from the same day showing Sanders in the same clothes, carries substantially more weight than what the ex-wife, who admits she wasn't there, says she believes from looking at a picture. He's an eyewitness. She's not.

      According to the original Time article from Nov, Sanders was sure it was him.

    Trump is such an effing coward with how he always says and does things via others and acts as if he's just responding to what he heard. I can't believe any man would find that manly. And as another poster pointed out, with this eligibility thing he's not even basing it on moral grounds--it's a big "if" and he'll do this or do that if someone doesn't conform to what he wants. Well, there was already a ruling a while ago saying that Cruz is a viable candidate. Given how that matter was determined, Trump will have a hard time trying to get other states to side against Cruz. I'll paste in a link. people can also, if interested, look up articles on Mitt Romney's dad and how it was determined that he, who was born in Mexico (it was not the same kind of situation as McCain's) was able to run for pres.

    Why would Donald Trump and others be concerned about Ted Cruz's and President Obama's citizenship when the crybaby wants to imbed a traitor to our union into his presidential cabinet? In the United States of America, Sarah Palin is considered to be a traitor to the US of A for being party to a group that wanted Alaska to secede from the union.

    John McCain's running mate Sarah Palin was in Alaskan independence party

    Sarah Palin, the Republican vice-presidential candidate, was once a member of the Alaskan Independence Party, its officials have said.

    News of Mrs Palin's former membership comes as the latest in a string of potentially embarrassing disclosures about her past.

    The party has lobbied since the 1970s for the right to hold a referendum on whether Alaska should secede from the United States. Its motto, "Alaska First", contrasts sharply with the John McCain campaign slogan: "Country First."

    It seeks "the complete repatriation of the public lands, held by the federal government, to the state and people of Alaska" and aims to be "self-sufficient" by using profits from Alaskan oil and gas resources. It claims that the vote held in 1958 which led to Alaska becoming the 49th state of the US was corrupt and did not offer a proper choice
