Diana West And Sam Sorbo Discuss Cruz’s Natural Born Citizen Issue

Do we care at all what the Framers of the Constitution intended for this issue of Natural Born Citizenship, as it relates to whether or not Senator Ted Cruz is Constitutionally eligible or ineligible to be President?  The entire discussion is a result of Donald Trump bringing up a lawsuit which will probably be brought by the political left wing, known as the Democrat Party.  A threat to file the action has already been publicized.  Such an act of litigation could put Cruz’s candidacy, either for President or Vice President, in a state of limbo for years, as Trump pointed out last night.

Cruz was born in Canada.  His mother was born in the United States.  Cruz’s father was not born in the U.S.A.  Is Cruz a naturalized citizen or a natural born citizen?  Here’s what one of America’s greatest political analysts, Diana West, thinks.  What do you think?  Or does natural born citizenship matter any more?  If we can on a whim dispense with that clause, why not not just scrap the whole document and wing it?

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

  1. Surely if there is any chance of Cruz being ruled ineligible, he must get a Supreme Court ruling. Yet, he must figure this out with his advisors and analysts, as the distraction of such an event, could damage his campaign irreparably. Either way it is a noted damage towards his presidential bid.
