Law professor says "it's just not true" to Ted Cruz birthers

It's hard to believe but the birthers are back. This time they're going after Senator Ted Cruz, who announced his candidacy for President of the United States Monday morning. Robbie George, a law professor at Princeton University, joined Glenn to dispel the theories before they could spread during an interview on TheBlaze TV.

Glenn: Professor Robbie George is a law professor at Princeton University, knew Senator Cruz from his time as a student there, and in fact is the guy who gave the grade for his thesis. Robbie George joins us now from Princeton. Hello, Professor George.

Prof. George: Hi, Glenn. How are you doing?

Glenn: Good, how are you?

Prof. George: Very well, thank you.

Glenn: So, I want to talk to you about a couple of things. Before we get into some personal stories about Ted Cruz, do me a favor and please put an end to this nonsense that Ted Cruz cannot run for president because he’s a Canadian.

Prof. George: Well, it’s just not true. He’s a natural born citizen. He’s never been a citizen of any other country. He was born an American citizen to an American mother, happened to be born in Canada, but the consensus of scholars is pretty strict on this. He’s perfectly entitled to run for president of the Constitution.

Glenn: Can you explain what John Jay was doing with that and why this doesn’t apply? Because honestly, even if Barack Obama were born in Kenya, and we all know that he was born in Hawaii or Newfoundland, even if he was born in Kenya, because his mother was a citizen, he still would have been eligible for President of the United States. Is that true?

Prof. George: Yeah, that’s right. I mean, assuming that there was nothing that she did that compromised her own citizenship, and we don’t know that there was anything she did like that. There’s certainly nothing that Ted Cruz’s mother did like that. Here’s the way to think about it, Glenn. I mean, he wasn’t a citizen of some other country, so he was not naturalized to be an American citizen.

Glenn Didn’t he just turn in his Canadian citizenship? Didn’t he have dual citizenship?

Prof. George: Yeah, it’s possible to have dual citizenship. The key thing though is that you were born an American citizen. You were born an American citizen. You didn’t get it later by naturalization. You were born into it.

Glenn: I mean, this is not just you saying this. This is Harvard Law Review. This is a very well—I’m seeing this everywhere on the Internet now.

Prof. George: Glenn, this is not an issue. I mean, people can talk, and the Internet can go crazy about it. We can have all kinds of conspiracy theories and things like that. All of it is going to be irrelevant. We might as well lay it aside. The man has announced he is running for president. If he is elected, he will be inaugurated on January—

Glenn: Right.

Prof. George: That’s the way it works. That’s what’s going to happen. I don’t think we need to waste our time, and you certainly don’t need to waste your time talking about this. Let the lunatics on the Internet continue to make an issue of it and just move on.

Glenn: I just wanted one more thing, this is not a new issue. I just love this book. It’s called The Great Mistake. It comes from the time of the Great Depression when Hoover was in office, and they were saying the same thing about Hoover. They’re saying he could not be president because he wasn’t an American citizen. He was English.

Prof. George: Right. Let me give you an example of somebody who can’t be president. Henry Kissinger cannot be president. Now, why can Henry Kissinger not be president? It’s because he was born a citizen of somewhere else, namely Germany. He was naturalized as an American citizen, so whatever achievements and whatever great public service former Secretary of State Kissinger is given and so forth, he is simply not eligible under the Constitution to be President of the United States. Perhaps that should be changed, but that’s the way it is.

In the wake of the horrific Buffalo shooting, the left-wing media tried to paint all conservatives as subscribers to “replacement theory” — the idea that immigrants are taking over to such an extent that they will destroy white Western civilization. Of course, no serious conservative believes in this ugly, racist, dangerous ideology, but there is a ton of ACTUAL replacement going on, and it has nothing to do with immigration or racism.

What we saw yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, is more dark horrific evidence of the only replacement theory that ultimately matters because it affects everything. We’ve replaced God in society. Glenn argues it’s why gun control is ultimately useless — even though he completely understands our human impulse to DO something. While our culture has replaced God for rot, the Biden White House and Democrats are also working overtime to replace key elements of American political, legal, economic, and cultural life.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin of “LevinTV” tells Glenn why Media Matters' latest hit job on him over his Uvalde coverage is pathetic. “Stop pushing God out of the public square” is not a radical concept to help prevent evil from taking hold in our schools. He also takes on the Democrats’ attempts to destroy the Supreme Court, voting rights, and the separation of powers.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey of “Relatable” tells Glenn why she believes the Uvalde shooting reveals how we are failing young men in this country and what we must do to stop the replacement theory that threatens to keep an entire generation from becoming a benefit to society.

Glenn Beck addressed the incomprehensibly tragic mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on the radio program Wednesday, saying it's time to stop with the politics, from both sides, and focus on healing a nation that is tearing itself apart.

"It pains me to think about the political garbage that has happened in the last 12 hours," Glenn began. "I believe that we are on the verge of losing our nation, and the reason why we're about to lose our nation is the same reason some kid walked into an elementary school and shot and killed people. It's not the guns ... it's our society."

Glenn called the tragedies plaguing our nation' —kids shooting kids, committing suicide, dying from fentanyl, joining gangs, and suffering from depression and loneliness — are symptoms of a greater sickness.

"Where's the value of human life? The hatred that is being poured down our throats, the class division, the racism — make no mistake, it is intentional," he stated. "The best way to destroy a nation is to cut it apart. ... In our society, where are the ethics? What are ethics? It's your truth versus my truth. There is no absolute truth. And in a world where there is no truth, who gets to be God? Well, it depends on which group you're in I guess."

Glenn said America’s underlying problem is "a rotting in our soul" and until we "live in a nation that is willing to even recognize that there is something bigger than the self, and it has nothing to do with government, we'll never fix this problem."

"Let's not make this about Democrats and Republicans. Let's just make this about what the hell is going on because everything in our society is falling apart," he said. "And until you're willing to have that conversation, the rest of it is bullcrap."

Did Biden just let slip that record-high gas prices were PLANNED?

President Joe Biden on Monday appeared to praise record-high gas prices, saying it's all part of an “incredible transition” that will make America and the world better off.

“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden explained during a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo.

Twitter wasn't buying Biden's most recent bunch of malarkey:





Glenn Beck has long been warning that progressive policies and regulations intended to cripple the fossil fuel industry would lead to skyrocketing oil and gas prices — and it's all by design. Back in 2008, President Barack Obama all but admitted as much when he said energy costs would "necessarily skyrocket” under his cap-and-trade plan.

On a recent episode of BlazeTV's "Glenn Beck Program," Glenn explained why he believes the current oil and gas catastrophe is all "part of the plan," as leftists continue to push their radical ESG agenda.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."
