Senator Ted Cruz Constitutionally Ineligible For Office of President

Posted: Monday, January 18, 2016 by Pezzonovante in Labels: ,

While the debate rages over whether Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) meets the natural born citizen requirement found in Article II, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution, Cruz has shown that he is constitutionally ineligible to serve as president.

Setting aside the natural born citizen question raised by his Canadian birth, statements by Cruz show that he has little regard for the limitations the U.S. Constitution places on the Office of President, and that, if elected, he would violate his oath of office without compunction.

Oath of Office:

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

In the last Republican debate, Cruz, in answer to a question about jobs, seized upon the recent detainment of U.S. soldiers who had violated the territorial waters of Iran.

Photographs of captured U.S. soldiers on their knees with hands held in the air permeated the news media.

Sen. Ted Cruz couldn't resist.

See: (2:53 - 3:55).

At (3:41 - 3:55) Cruz says the following:

"And I give you my word, if I am elected president, no serviceman or servicewoman will be forced to be on their knees in any nation that captures our fighting men and women will feel the full force and fury of the United States of America."

Would-be Commander-in-Chief Crazy Cruz is well nigh oblivious to a few constitutional facts.  

Under the U.S. Constitution, only Congress has the power to declare war (Article I, Section 8) and the president is Commander-in-Chief only when armed forces are "called into the actual Service of the United States" (Article II, Section 2).

Sadly, Americans have become accustomed to referring to the president as Commander-in-Chief, when the president is only supposed to be Commander-in-Chief in very specific instances at very specific times (e.g., when the U.S. Congress declares war).

Because American foreign policy is highly interventionist, Americans have become inured to the perpetual state of war in which men of the ilk of Sen. Ted Cruz keep us.

Moreover, Cruz' foreign policy formulation includes the neoconservative tenet of American exceptionalism -- that is, America, because she is the exception to the rule (i.e., the rule of law), may conduct incursions into the sovereign territory of other nations, implement sanctions (acts of war), foment internal unrest, and start undeclared wars of aggression with impunity.

In Sen. Ted Cruz' worldview, any sovereign nation which challenges -- i.e., by placing invading forces on their knees -- the supposedly unchallengeable hegemony of the United States of America should feel the full force and fury (nuclear bombs) of the United States of America.

Executive Orders and Executive Actions Are Wholly Unconstitutional

Posted: Thursday, January 7, 2016 by Pezzonovante in Labels: , , , , ,

Executive Orders and Executive Actions which change law are wholly unconstitutional, for the Constitution of the United States clearly lays out in Article I, Section I, the following:  "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives."

Article II, Section 2, lays out the powers of the Office of President.  As the Office of President is not part of Congress, under the U.S. Constitution, the Office of the President possesses no legislative powers whatsoever.

That is, the Office of the President possesses no power to make law or to change law.  The U.S. Constitution vests such legislative power solely in the Congress.

A solitary individual vested with such legislative power is anathema to the U.S. Constitution and antithetical to liberty and freedom.

A solitary individual bent on arrogating such unconstitutional, legislative power unto himself (while holding the Office of President) is guilty of violating his oath of office and should be forthwith stripped of said office via the impeachment process, for he is a danger to the inalienable rights and liberties of all.

The Constitution of the United States

Article. I.
Section. 1.
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Article. II.
Section. 1.
The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.
The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse the President. But in chusing the President, the Votes shall be taken by States, the Representation from each State having one Vote; A quorum for this Purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two thirds of the States, and a Majority of all the States shall be necessary to a Choice. In every Case, after the Choice of the President, the Person having the greatest Number of Votes of the Electors shall be the Vice President. But if there should remain two or more who have equal Votes, the Senate shall chuse from them by Ballot the Vice President.
The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United 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; 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.
The President shall, at stated Times, receive for his Services, a Compensation, which shall neither be encreased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Section. 2.
The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

Newly elected Republican Commissioner Dave Lohr's vote for Democrat Vincent A. Vicites to chair the Fayette County Commission that has a Republican majority has drawn a swift response from Fayette County Republican Party Chairman Dave Show. 

Today, Show, who is also the leader of the Fayette Patriots, expressed his dismay over Lohr's support for the minority Democrat to chair the board in a post on the Fayette Tea Party Patriots FaceBook page.


David Show7 hrs 
BREAKING NEWS.....Nothing changes in Fayette County. 
New Commissioner Dave Lohr shows his true colors today abandoning the Republicans to make the lone Democrat Chair of the county. More of the same old same to come. Another Democrat clone in Dave Lohr as we tried to tell you. Be sure to thank Dave Lohr for playing you for fools.
Show and his group did not support Lohr's candidacy prior to the election.

After Lohr's election win on November 3, 2015, Show made a bury-the-hatchet-type post on November 4 on his own Facebook page.

*Republican Angela Zimmerlink reelected.
*Democrat Al Ambrosini gone
*Republican candidates running for first time in decades
*2 elected Republican registered County Commissioners
*Democrats being challenged and put on the record.
*Opposition spending boat loads of money to stay in office
*Tums sales way up election night.
Well Fayette County guess what, the sun came up today and has given us a new chance to do the right thing. God has given us a new chance to repair a wonderful county with newly elected people. He has given us a chance to correct the mistakes of the past if we are willing to lead and to do his will. We wake today to see our county with a majority of Republican Commissioners in office. Regardless of how we got there it's now our chance to lead the county as Republicans with Republican values. The voters of Fayette have spoken. They have said with their ballots yet again that they trust the judgment and leadership of Republican Angela Zimmerlink by making her the top Republican vote getter. They also have decided Republican Dave Lohr should get the chance to lead. It's been a long, hard, even nasty road to this point but now is the time for all to lead. This is the chance Fayette has been given and we all have a responsibility to boldly walk through this open door, put the county first, move to the right, and fix this County. This will be the time to show our character or our lack of character. I for one am willing to see us do the right thing, rise above all those thing that have always held us back and see 2 Republicans lead with conservative values working in cooperation with their Democrat counter part to be fiscally responsible, ethically and morally just, and honest. Now we will see these 3 leaders true colors. We will see if they can truly raise to challenge. It's a new day and I truly wish them all the best. night.....priceless

This evening, Show made this post on his own Facebook page:

For those who felt I/we were being too hard on now new commissioner Dave Lohr for not supporting him because he was a RINO(Republican in name only) does todays action show you why so many said they would not support Dave Lohr. Can you imagine 2 Democrats voting to make a Republican Chair of the county. Lohr proved today he is no Conservative and proves we were correct about who and what he is. Hold on tight Fayette County it's going to be a long term.
