Cruz clinches straw poll gold

I’m sorry, but correct me if I’m wrong. HE WAS NOT BORN IN THIS COUNTRY, SO THEREFORE HE’S INELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT!!!! Why is there even a straw poll? He CANNOT run. PERIOD! END OF STORY!

The Hill – by Julian Hattem

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz won the Value Voters Summit presidential straw poll on Saturday.  

The crowd burst onto applause on Saturday, as Family Research Council President Tony Perkins announced that Cruz won 25 percent of votes at the annual Washington conference.

The victory is a big victory to the Republican firebrand and Tea Party icon, coming just a day after he drew standing ovations with a religious and emotional speech that blasted ObamaCare, congressional Democrats and called for Republicans to take over the White House in 2016.

Cruz also won the straw poll in 2013.

Coming in second was neurosurgeon Ben Carson, a political novice who has a large following in conservative circles but said earlier this week that there is a “strong” likelihood that he would run for president. He won 20 percent of the votes.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) came in third, with 12 percent of the vote.

As a signal of Carson’s popularity at the summit, the former Johns Hopkins University neurosurgeon came in first in the polling for vice president, winning 22 percent of the votes.

Cruz was the runner up in that contest, with 14 percent. Third was Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) — who earned surprising admiration in his Friday evening address, despite his low showing in recent polls of potential 2016 contenders — with 11 percent of the vote.

The annual Washington summit is considered a right of passage for prospective Republican presidential candidates, and served as an opportunity for aspirants to make some of their most direct pitches to social conservatives before announcing their ambitions next year.

The notable absence from the winners’ list of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — another senator who is considered to be strongly eyeing a presidential run — is a sign of pervasive skepticism from the religious right.

Paul’s libertarian leanings have won him supporters among the young and tech-savvy, but he has yet to make inroads among Christian conservatives. The poor showing comes despite his attempts on Friday to appeal to the summit’s religious leanings.

The summit also asks participants which issues they care about most deeply.

“Protecting religious liberty” easily won that contest with 39 percent of the vote, followed by abortion and “protecting natural marriage.”

    You got that dead on, NC. It’s a travesty.

    1. I don’t care if he is a Republican, Pro-Jews or if he is against Obama or whatever the hell else he stands for. The fact is he WAS NOT BORN IN THIS COUNTRY AND THEREFORE IS INELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT!!! TO SAY OR BE OTHERWISE, IS BLATANTLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND IS SEDITION AND TREASON!!!

      The Constitution clearly states that you HAVE TO BE BORN IN THIS COUNTRY!

      Even if you don’t know the Constitution, IT’S COMMON SENSE! Why would you put someone as president of your country who was not born in your country?

      It’s time to stop giving into these bastards and saying, “Oh well” to every part of the Constitution that they trash and say “NO!”.

      These Zionist bastards are gonna fry if they manage to put him in office. (If we even have another election) I’m sick of this shit. 😡

      And as far as AJ goes and his support for Cruz, we should all hang his fat ass for treason, especially since he preaches the Constitution and Bill of Rights, only to use it to screw the people who are just waking up to this mess. 😡

        1. Nope! No matter how those scum sucking Commies twist it, it doesn’t matter. It says it clear in the Constitution in that you HAVE TO BE NATURALLY BORN IN THE COUNTRY, NOT outside the country on US soil or to some American parent nor can he be “naturally” turned to American later. If that’s the case then I can be president of Italy because I have Italian blood in me. It’s bullshit.


    1. It’s official alright. CNN has finally perpetrated an even bigger lie and hoax than their Sandy Hoax bullshit, their Ron Paul editing bullshit and their LAX staged actor interview bullshit. How can ANYONE believe what they say? These bastards will say ANYTHING for their agenda and they know they can get away with it because THE PEOPLE OF THIS DAMN COUNTRY NEVER DOES A DAMN THING TO STOP THEM!!

      WAKE UP, PEOPLE!!!



    2. According to the CNN article:

      “”Because I was a U.S. citizen at birth, because I left Calgary when I was 4 and have lived my entire life since then in the U.S., and because I have never taken affirmative steps to claim Canadian citizenship, I assumed that was the end of the matter,” Cruz said at the time.

      Then he took immediate steps to renounce his Canadian citizenship.”

      So wait. He said he was not a Canadian in one sentence and then in the next he said he took steps to renounce his Canadian citizenship.

      So I’m not a rocket scientist, but that means he WAS a Canadian born in CANADA!!! Therefore HE WAS NOT BORN IN AMERICA AND CANNOT BE PRESIDENT!!!

      “Well, that process was formally completed last month, and he received a letter in the mail this week telling him so, the newspaper reported Tuesday.

      “This is to certify that the person named above has formally renounced Canadian citizenshp and pursuant to the Citizenship Act will cease to be a citizen on” May 14, 2014, the letter read.”

      “citzenshp”? WOW! This is an all new low. Either that letter is fraudulent or CNN can’t spell worth of shit.

      “”it’s official y’all,” tweeted his spokeswoman Catherine Frazier.”

      No it’s not, y’all! 😡


    I WILL NOT do a damn thing this ineligible piece of Zionist trash says!

    He will never be referred to as “my president” and I won’t do a damn thing this bastard says anymore than with Barry.

    This is blatant and in your face TREASON!!!

    There should be people in outrage all over this.
