Birther sheriff declares Canada-born Sen. Ted Cruz ineligible to run for president

Published

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) talks to ABC News on Dec. 29, 2013.

A prominent critic of President Obama, who claims that president’s birth certificate is a fraud and a forgery, is now stating that  Sen. Ted Cruz is ineligible to run for president because he was born in Canada, reports Right Wing Watch.

Speaking on Blog Talk Radio, former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack said that, although he likes the Texas senator, his foreign birth precludes him from serving as  Commander in Chief.

In response to a caller who stated that the Constitution bars the Canadian-born Cruz from being president, Mack agreed.

“That is correct, I try to say that to a lot of people. Ted Cruz cannot run for president of the United States,” he said. “I like Ted, I’ve met him several times and he’s kind of a friend of mine, but he can’t run for president.”

Like the president, Cruz was born to an American mother and a foreign-born father. Unlike Obama, Cruz was born outside the United States, leading some to believe that he is not eligible to run for highest office in the land since he is not a “natural born citizen,” as required by Article Two in the Constitution.

Mack was recently involved in the  Cruz-approved stand-off with the government at the Nevada ranch of tax-avoiding Cliven Bundy.

The former sheriff who now heads the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association — a collection of  officers who believe that  county sheriffs have the authority to defy and arrest federal officials – made news when he admitted to using women as human shields at Bundy ranch, stating, “If they’re going to start killing people, I’m sorry, but to show the world how ruthless these people are, women needed to be the first ones shot.”

Texas Republican hasn’t even been sworn in yet and already a GOP congressman is publicly dunking on him

Published

on

There was some drama on Twitter on Friday when a four-term Republican congressman dunked on a Texas Republican who won a seat in Congress but has yet to be sworn in.

It started when Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) urged President Donald Trump to pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange.

Rep.-elect Tony Gonzales (R-TX) called out Gabbard for being "full of more than just turkey."

Snowden and Assange are Russian agents who pose a direct threat to US National interests. Clearly @TulsiGabbard is full of more than just turkey. https://t.co/RI4XgdZRUy
