Birther Joseph Farah, one of the loudest voices claiming that President Obama is not eligible for the presidency because he believes that Obama was not born in the U.S., is willing to change his rules for Ted Cruz.
Ted Cruz, a Canadian-born, dual citizen, is by most constitutional lawyers opinion eligible to run for president, but some birthers have called this into question. Mainly Donald Trump.
When it came to Obama, Farah was quoted as saying:
Why won’t a birth hospital in Hawaii come forward to verify the historic event – the birth of the baby who would become the first black president? Why the secrecy even after Obama wrote a public letter to the hospital claiming to have been born there?
Let me just say this in closing: The Constitution is precious. It is the basis for the rule of law in America. If we discount clear provisions like the one offered in Article 2, Section 1 on presidential eligibility, we might as well scrap the document altogether and just allow ourselves to be ruled by men, rather than law.
However, when asked about Cruz’s eligibility, Farah seemed to not care about the constitutionality of the issue and instead says:
Many have asked me, “What about the question of constitutional eligibility?”
My answer is direct: Obama and the establishment media have made a mockery of the Constitution in many ways, but none more than their attacks on the “natural born citizen” requirement. So much damage was done to that simple clause in the last eight years, I don’t believe there’s any going back.
You can’t even have a serious conversation about the eligibility issue any longer. So be it.
What I do know is that Ted Cruz loves America.
I could never say that about Obama.
The eligibility requirement of the Constitution was intended to protect the nation from foreign corruption, entanglements, intrigue, suspicion and conflicts of interest.
I don’t believe anyone in their right mind thinks Ted Cruz has any allegiance to either Canada or Cuba. This guy loves America with all of his heart, mind and soul.
How quickly an idiotic opinion changes when it suits your own personal needs. This is another great example of the closed-minded, simplistic, and selfish thinking of today’s conservatives.
Rules stop applying when they have to follow them.
Of course, the whole thing is idiotic. Obama has provided a birth certificate and a judge tossed out Trump’s case against Cruz.
Farah, however, will continue to believe that Obama is a Kenyan, while praising Cruz, a known Canadian as being as American as they come.
