update-1Report Via Daily Beast: Head of Glenn Beck’s Media Empire Quits as The Blaze Burns Down

CNN Outlines – The stress fractures within the Ted Cruz facade are beginning to reach the point where it’s no longer possible to keep them hidden. (Via CNN) […]  as Cruz appears to be falling farther behind front-runner Donald Trump, his campaign is now looking in the rear-view mirror, concerned that Marco Rubio and the rest of the GOP field are closing in.

Cruz’s problems were in sharp relief at the Fox News debate in Des Moines Thursday night, where he was everyone’s favorite punching bag.

The consistent charge: Cruz is a fake.

“This is the lie that Ted’s campaign is built on, and Rand touched upon it — that he’s the most conservative guy, and everyone else is a — you know, everyone else is a RINO,” Sen. Marco Rubio said Thursday night. “The truth is, Ted, throughout this campaign, you’ve been willing to say or do anything in order to get votes.”(read more)

UPDATE: (Via Daily Beast) In what knowledgeable observers say is a sign of increasing turmoil in Glenn Beck’s troubled media empire, Beck’s longtime mentor and corporate executive, Kraig Kitchin, has quit as CEO of The Blaze.

Kitchin’s replacement, Stewart Padveen, a digital startup entrepreneur who joined Beck’s company last summer, will be the fourth leader of The Blaze since late 2014.

Kitchin, 54, who took over operations of Beck’s conservative-leaning subscription digital and cable television enterprise last June—after two previous CEOs abruptly left in the space of six months—is resigning along with two other senior executives: Jeremy Price, director of advertising sales, and Liz Julis, director of marketing.  (read more)

        Many reasons but the main reason is the man is NOT Constitutionally eligible. He is supposed to be an expert on Constitutional law, so please don’t say he doesn’t know. Natural born means born of two US citizens. It has recently come out his mother may have become a Canadian citizen ( versus being a US citizen) prior to his birth so that would make him 100% foreign. However like obama he refuses to release his documentation. Do you really want another person who totally disregards the Constitution?

        He’s lied about TPP, lied about the Iran nuke deal, lied about who his puppet masters are. He does nothing but grandstand, tilt at windmills, sabotage serious conservatives in the Senate, and steals their credit. He’s the last one on board, comes rushing in when he realizes he missed a political opportunity, blows up the entire process, claims that he “lead the fight” and then blames everyone else saying they’re all against him because he’s The One True Conservative. He is totally untrustworthy and quite possibly mentally unstable like his friend Glenn Beck. This is the reason NO ONE in the Senate likes him.

        Cruz is all politics all the time. You should be able to see through his BS.

      The GOPe are just beginning to fight through Fox and other Media.

      The entire non-Trump world will use every 24 hour news cycle from now until the convention to stop him.

      Unless he locks up a majority of delegates, they have every caucus and primary and delegate election (all rigged, I’ve been there done it), and will use every coercion and trick and lie to stop the loss of their power.

      They virtually lose control of one of the two Parties when they lose to Trump. He will have to fight to shove the RNC to the sidewalk and take over the mechanisms and bureaucracy of the Party machinery. This is a long and bigger fight than just a run to the WH.

      Don’t get gleeful. He has to run the table, trounce everyone, hold their voters for the general election, drive out the traitors, and beat the Dems and their teams.

      And he has to stay alive.

        Seems to me it would be too ‘nutter’ to mention it now, though.

        Perhaps hope for huge turnouts and be ready to pounce on any obvious discrepancy?

        A caucus is probably the best possible first vote in that regard, isn’t it. I think it would be hard to rig an event with large numbers of supporters who form groups to indicate their preference.

          I like to (imagine) believe that there’s someone high-up in the GOPe or RNC who is actually still a true patriot, and was part of the team that convinced Trump to run. This “person” is quiet, and stays in the background – but when the inevitable shenanigans start, they will use their voice to make sure the will of the people is carried out. Surely there are individuals Inside the machine who still love our country…they’re just keeping the powder dry until the final battle begins.

          I always go back to my basic belief – Trump wouldn’t be doing this if he didn’t know he could win. He’s no fool, and surely knows as much as we do about what goes on at the Nat’l convention…and surely he has a plan.

          In this time of peril Donald comes to us to fight off great evil. To restore our freedom. The outcome is in the balance Now. We have received this gift with our whole hearts and are standing firm. Our ranks are growing daily in numbers and in strength. The rallies, the votes, the cheers are our shields against the circling evil. Battle lines are becoming clearer. Allies are emerging as issues are defined and deceivers exposed.

          Many we do not know of yet are responding as we are, rallying against evil with our leader Trump. High placed people who are aware of our grave danger, who love America and who love Americans are secretly with us. They too see a great and powerful man who can make us strong and proud again. Many must now be quietly in touch with Donald as they see his strength grow week by week telling him of evil plans they have discovered. Donald, a social and political genius, is without doubt willing and able to counter all their plots. His Intel is good, his heart is good. Patriots are gathering. This is my hope a prayer: Let us trust in the power of truth, in each other and in Mr. Trump. May Gods will be done.

        Bull Durhan,
        DISCLAIMER: { Old ladies who live alone will talk to the bark on a tree. And we never stop talking. Just stop reading when you want to stop, and same with my questions.}
        Your comments just verbalized my thoughts and my fears. Took me a while to be more than an “average voter”. I have been voting for 56 years (since I was 21), and until 2006 I just followed the crowd. I always voted the man, not the party. JFK was my last democratic vote. In 2006 I had a very uneasy feeling about Obama. I was a retired school teacher and had always followed my instincts when dealing with students. Obama game me an “Eddie Haskell” alert. Just a bit too slick and smooth for me. About 2010 I began reading. Back then Glenn Beck was on Fox, he was a prolific reader and frequently recommended books. I read every book (except Hayet’s Economics theory) that was recommended. The reading, and the history, current events,and topical politics that he taught his viewers on his blackboard were the best education ever. I had a college degree plus 3 extra certifications I was extremely naive politically; officers of the law were what every young boy wanted to be; Washington was the cradle of well, everything. Every young child wanted to grow up to be president. Following Glenn’s reading list I found the underbelly of politics. And that is where I am today. I have done a lot of reading on links in CTH postings. I remember what the 2012 convention did to Ron Paul. Add all of that up and that’s where I am today. I know just enough to know why Cruz’s ineligibility never came up; to recognize Jeb and Hillary were “chosen” by the elite to run; to accept, in spite of a “rap sheet” of awful crimes, Hillary was not indicted (probably never will be); and the biggie, how Obama – from Acorn, through “Fast and Furious”, Muslim bro’hood, Benghazi; and his 36 appointed cars – was teflon coated. All of that feeds into my fears that, yes, Hillary and Jeb will be the nominee. That will be a bitter pill to swallow for an old lady. At this point, what is your gut feeling? About who will be the nominees? About will there even be an election? (Since 2008 I have said that before the inauguration there would be a crisis that would precipitate the need for martial law) About the reality of the NWO?
        I know the world economy is in the tank, got any economic ideas? I guess we will have to wait to see who is elected to know the outcome of the illegal immigration.
        In spite of it all (or maybe because of it all), Politically speaking, this is a thrilling time to be alive!!!

            This country was founded and guided by Judeo-Christian values, people faithful to their religious beliefs who worked hard to contribute to the Republic, “one nation, under God.” Religious principles guide citizen patriots who are compelled to enter public office, but the intention is to volunteer their service to country guided by values, not to be anointed a king who is blessed by some arbitrary priest in order to appropriate wealth from whomever they see fit. The tenets of Dominionists seem very much in line with Heidi’s North American Union fantasy to consolidate power with a chosen few, tossing sovereignty aside for a crazy cabal of elitists who are ready to anoint priests and kings for a NWO. More than a cult, it sounds like a group of Globalists with a Christian religious veneer.

      Check out google for info concerning NBC for ‘George Gordon Meade birther controversy’ – he was the general who took over the Army of the Potomac a few days before the Battle of Gettysburg. I read years ago that he was appointed to that post by Lincoln because he could not be a presidential threat since Meade had been born in Spain. There is a letter to the editor of the NY Times dated in 1863 written by a reader that expresses what many of us believe to be true concerning natural born status. His father and mother were in Spain at the time Meade was born there. His father was on an official gov’t business I believe. In 1802 Congress enacted a law that persons born outside of the USA to American citizens was a citizen too. However, the writer (and most other Americans including Lincoln) knew Meade was not eligible for the Presidency (and also VP) since he was not born in the United States. The writer also stated that Congress cannot define natural born status since it is in the Constitution. Requires an Amendment. When Meade was born, Spain was not under Congressional jurisdiction and neither was Canada at the time Cruz was born and his birth certified there.

      • zoe says:

        “Natural Born Citizen” as written in Article Two definitely meant someone born on US soil. That was the Common Law definition of it. Cruz was “born a citizen” (a “citizen at birth”) because his mother is an American citizen, but that is not the same as being “natural born.” The statutes that specified automatic citizenship for children born overseas to American citizens (there was another one after 1802 as well I think), as you said, don’t negate or even address the requirement of Article Two.

        If you’re a constitutional “originalist” (as Cruz is) then it follows a potential US President has to be more than just a citizen at birth….he/she has to be actually born in the US. Personally, I am not an originalist and I think it should be interpreted the way he claims it should be. Not because I support him (I don’t, at all), but because that’s how I read it (as a former lawyer). But it is NOT settled law. It’s never been decided or even much discussed And moreover, he’s a hypocrite for abandoning his “originalist” principles in this one case only….so he can run for President.

          Would a child born in the US in 1805 (a random year, but includes your reference to a possible statute in 1802) to a US citizen mother and a foreign citizen father have been a natural born US citizen?

          A child born abroad under the same conditions at that time would not have even been a US citizen. Mothers didn’t transmit US citizenship by themselves in foreign birth situations until 1934.

          What I’m trying to conceptualize is a situation where a father transmitted citizenship and the mother transferred condition. That is, a child born in the US to a citizen US father is a US citizen, AND IF the mother is also a US citizen the child is a natural born citizen. Note that I say that the qualifier is AND IF, not OR IF.

          That’s the reason I ask the question in the first sentence.

          Looking at the statutes at the time it seems like a mother could affect the citizenship of a US born child (i.e. deny Us citizenship status in some cases), but had no standing to a foreign born child of a foreign born father. The mother had some type of affect, but I’m not sure what it is.

    Cruz’s high point was when he scolded the CNBC moderators.

    His low point was attacking all of New York City for Trump’s views when he should have attacked only Trump. He came across as emotionless, cold-hearted and uncaring of anything but his own personal well-being.

    It was made all the worse by Trump’s response, which was genuine and heart-felt, and made him appear to the viewers as a human being with genuine emotions.

    I can only think of the scene with the Joker, “This city needs a better class of criminal, and I’m going to give it to ’em”. See, the Joker just wanted to help.

    The problem Cruz has is there is a sociopsychopath who has announced “he wants to help”. And deinstitutionalization has been implemented in both Texas and Iowa. Watch that Batman/Joker movie and put yourself in the place of someone the Joker is interacting with. You really don’t want to say “no” and really want to put some distance between.

    Perhaps the 7 resigned for their own safety.

    If it was Trump, he would have called such a supporter to a meeting, had a sufficient number of his security detail restrain him properly, and take him by private jet into a clinic and issued a press release about some vague medical problem.

    But in general, for my goals, I find Beck very helpful. However someone at TheBlaze should insure there isn’t any Kool-Aid available the day after the IA caucuses, and the NH primaries, lest Glenn insist on serving at the People’s temple.

The novel/movie implies the prophecy is accurate. But the bizarre, paranoid behavior including the scared out of one’s wits expression seem to parallel Beck’s current state.

      The LDS church did issue an interdict against Amman Bundy (why is he in Jail and not Hillary), but so far nothing against Beck. Between Mitt Romneycare and Beck, no Mormon will have credibility for the next century if they don’t do something.

      Take caution when crossing a Psycho’s path.

            Imagine Cruz in his best sanctimonious voice talking about how Don demands to be treated fairly but runs with an internet rumor and “How fair is that”. Perhaps I am thinking too much like a Chicago politician but I call dirty pool unless Don Fairly surfaces, confirms his words and proves that he worked for Cruz.

            Who would sign a non-disclosure contract upon exiting a job? It makes no sense.

      That’s how one would proactively rationalize rigged results.

      If results come in that say, for example, Cruz won even though many Trump supporters appeared to be present, you would start seeing reports that, “well, we told you so last week”.

      That’s my own conspiracy theory regarding the 2012 election. Almost all polls had Romney ahead by 5 points except Nate Silver. When Romney lost, all of a sudden Silver was the ‘great prognosticator’. One could also argue that the others were correct and that Silver’s poll was cooked and was used to rationalize the results after the fact.

      Polling isn’t an exact science, but will be analyzed as an exact science, when necessary, to further a particular goal.

      I can’t believe that Jeff Sessions worked with Cruz on this bill as Cruz claims. How does he explain the 95,000,000 Americans who have stopped looking for work? How does he explain the STEM salaries that are stagnant? There are many American STEM workers who can’t find jobs. All the net new jobs in this country for years have gone to foreigners.

      One of the worst things about the H1-b visas is that many of the foreigners coming in to take American jobs get affirmative action. STEM workers from India get affirmative action priority over Americans. There is something really wrong about someone who just arrived in this country going to the head of the line over Americans for jobs.

      Ted cares more about foreigners getting jobs than Americans. Ted should talk to the Disney workers and the California utility workers who were replaced by H1-b visa workers.

      People think Cruz’s amendments were proposed because he knew they would not pass, and it would end up killing the bill. That strategy might be OK, except that that’s not what Cruz himself says he was trying to do with the amendments. He told Byron York he was trying to improve the Gang of Eight bill: “…my objective was not to kill immigration reform but to amend the Gang of Eight bill so that it actually solves the problem rather than making the problem worse.”

      It would have been very easy to tell York his intention all along was to kill the terrible bill, but he doesn’t say that.

        I guess we can thank Rubio for outing Cruz on his immigration stance. I believe he said he and Cruz have similar views on the subject.
        Cruz is talking 500% increases in H1B visas and increasing legal immigration from mexico and china and one other country. The lie the federal government tells is we don’t have citizens who can do those jobs. That is a pack of lies. The American citizens with these degrees can NOT find work in this field! The large corporations are hiring foreign nationals and saving their companies 25% in wages. That is plain wrong!
        Cruz’ claim to fame is he is against amnesty. He hadn’t really volunteer any info on the subject as most tea party people just go with that as his word. He actually wants to legalize every illegal invader which allows them to “come out of the shadows”. One difference this could make is they may be able to legally take your job when its all said and done. More of that affirmative action.
        I want a wall built and secured. I want everyone with an expired visa and every illegal invader deported/sent home. Another problem I see with giving legal status to the invaders is obama has been sneaking muslims into the country by the plane load, bypassing any immigration desk. Its no accident that the muslims in congress are all in on amnesty/legalizing the invaders. They know what is going on.
        I’m tired of the American citizens being saddled with the 2nd class citizen treatment we have going on because all of these invader minorities are put ahead of us and we are paying for it out of our own earnings. The welfare, food stamps, housing, education and healthcare costs of those who have invaded our country is outrageous and that doesn’t include the lost jobs by our citizens. None of that changes if they stay. Our government is giving them tax credit checks and will soon be paying them social security. I’ve read illegal Cubans in Miami are already receiving benefits whether disability or social security.
        I’m for TRUMP building the dang wall and deporting the illegal invaders! Americans first.

    Per FINDLAW – there a 7 listed types of citizenship descriptions under the following:
    Section 301 of the Naturalization Act of 1952
    The first states that anyone born in the U.S. and subject to its jurisdiction is a citizen at birth. (Not TED)
    The 2d entry deals with Eskimos and Native Americans. (Not TED)

    3rd entry deals with persons “born outside the U.S. to citizen ParentS” (Not TED)

    4th a “person born outside the U.S. of a citizen parent who was continuously a resident in the U.S. for a year prior to birth and to a parent who is a foreign national”. (Not Ted – mom lived in Canada since 1967 his DOB year is 1970.)

    5th- – A “person born in a U.S. possession or territory of a citizen parent” who must again have “resided in the U.S. or that possession or territory continuously for one year”. (Not Ted)

    6th – a “person of unknown parentage found in the U.S. and under age 5” except if its learned before that person attaining age 21 that the subject’s birth was outside the U.S. (Not Ted – his parentage is known.)

    7– A “person that is born to an alien parent and a U.S. citizen parent” who resided in the U.S. for a period of 10 years “provided the person will lose citizenship unless that person “resides continuously in the U.S. for a period of 5 years between” that person’s “14th and 28th birthdays.”
    THIS last one pertains to TED.

    His mom was born in the U.S. in 1934 and did not leave the country until the early 1960’s when she went to England with her first husband. After their divorce she later met and married Ted’s dad (I assume in the U.S.) and later they went to live in Canada in 1967. His Cuban dad possessed Canadian citizenship.

    Since Ted Cruz has sealed his records we do not know if his mother notified and completed the forms for the U.S. embassy or consulate in Canada. Sealing her records may be to conceal her failure to do so.

    The 14th Amendment states all persons born or naturalized in the U.S., and subject to its jurisdiction, are citizens. This is also set forth above under the 1952 Act’s first specification. Ted being under the 7th provision is in effect a statutory citizen by the “grace of Congress.”

    Would Texans have voted him to be their senator if they had known of his Canadian birth and being a Canadian citizen?

    Can a person be a practicing attorney and member of the Bar in this country who is a citizen by birth of another country? Could Ted be able to a Texas lawyer and solicitor general in that state?

    Please see my George Gordon Meade birther controversy cited previously under this topic.. If you have read about Gettysburg you know who he is.

    The fundamental problem may be due to a lack of civics classes in our schools

    I was taught that a natural born meant your parents were also citizens at the time of one’s birth. The 1952 Act’s Section 301’s 3rd entry seems to stress that as well. Items 4 thru 7 are gifts from Congress. Only the Supreme Court can define, as most of you may know, the term “natural born” and not Congress. Our Congress is only tasked with the grant of naturalization which I guess Ted did not get.

    I also believe that Rubio’s parents being legal non-citizen residents do not convey natural born status to him even though he was born here. They were not naturalized citizens before his birth in order for that status to be conferred on him. Their being able to reside here was a gift of the U.S.
    government.

    Additional points of reference re Cruz and “natural born” status.

    The 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act ‘s Title 3, chap. 1:
    Children born abroad to U.S. parents were made “naturalized” citizens at birth. This is statutory citizenship. Statutory citizens born abroad may be deported via due process.

    The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services handbook states that in order to be President or Vice- President of the United States you must be born here.

    Lawrence Tribe, Cruz’s law professor, says that Cruz is ineligible.

    Ted Cruz inadvertently stated he did not meet this criteria when he explained that to be natural born the birth had to be in the U.S. of citizen parents. Cruz said this before he decided to run for President.

    Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the U.S. Its residents are considered to be statutory citizens.
    If it becomes independent they lose that status. If it becomes a State, they automatically become natural born citizens.

    John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone, which was under the jurisdiction of the U.S., to American citizens. Thus he was a statutory citizen. When Carter gave up the Zone to Panama, McCain effectively lost that status. In 2008 the question of McCain’s citizenship was brought up in Congress. They declared he was a citizen at birth but this was a statutory grant. Congress is unable to grant Natural Born citizenship. Congress cannot rewrite the Constitution.

    Barry Goldwater was born in the Arizona Territory and thus a statutory citizen until Congress admitted it into the Union.. Once Arizona became a State, Goldwater’s citizenship as a natural born citizen was formalized by its admission into the United States.

    Statutory citizens may hold public office except that specified under the Constitution for the offices of President and Vice-President. Those are the only two positions requiring Natural Born status per the U.S. Government’s own offiical definition as supplied in the USCIS Handbook.
