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.

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
