TRIBE VS. BALKIN ON WHETHER TED CRUZ IS A “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”

TRIBE VS. BALKIN ON WHETHER TED CRUZ IS A “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”

By Randy Barnett – The Volokh Conspiracy

Yesterday, the Harvard Law School chapter of the Federalist Society held a wonderful debate between Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe and Yale law professor Jack Balkin on whether Ted Cruz is a “natural born citizen” and, therefore, eligible to be president under the Constitution. (Like Balkin and Cruz, Tribe was also my constitutional law professor.)  Tribe says the issue is “not settled” but he also offers an argument against Cruz qualifying.

If Rubio emerges victorious, the pundits explain, the establishment will have lived to fight another day, and put those rowdy conservative grass-roots anti-establishment types in their place.

This is nonsense.

GROW UP!

GROW UP!

By Thomas Sowell

Of all the many things said about Donald Trump, what was said by Roger Ailes, head of the Fox News Channel, said it all in just two words: “Grow up!”

It is amazing how many people have been oblivious to this middle-aged man’s spoiled brat behavior, his childish boastfulness about things he says he is going to do, and his petulant response to every criticism with ad hominem replies.
