A prominent birther who believes that Barack Obama was born in a scary country filled with black people, now says that Sen. Ted Cruz is ineligible to be President, too.

[su_center_ad]Former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack, who now heads the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association — a guild of officers who believe the county sheriff has the authority to defy and arrest federal officials — said in a recent Blog Talk Radio interview that he believes Cruz is ineligible for the presidency, Right Wing Watch reports.

A call came into the show with the caller arguing that the Constitution bars the Canadian-born Cruz from being president.

Mack responded, “That is correct, I try to say that to a lot of people. Ted Cruz cannot run for president of the United States.”

“I like Ted, I’ve met him several times and he’s kind of a friend of mine, but he can’t run for president,” he added..

But Obama’s mother was American, and the same applies to Cruz, thus making them both eligible. In addiction, the President was born in Hawaii.

Cruz previously heaped praise on Mack’s efforts  during the armed standoff against the federal government at Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Colorado.

Listen courtesy of Right Wing Watch:

During the program, Mack also discussed the president’s birth certificate, and said it was “real easy to determine that that was a fake and a fraud,” and continued to say the people “who helped fabricate all of these things and people who know about” aren’t coming forward because they’re “all fearing for their lives.”

“I know the person who has done this, they’re all fearing for their lives, obviously, but it’s time to come forward,” he decleard. “The more light you shed on this, the less likely you are to be killed or hurt or put away.”

When Tea Partiers descended on Washington with accusations of a fake birth certificate, one thing was missing: Republicans quelling the unfounded accusations.

So, let’s just sit back and enjoy the show while they cannibalize each other.

    He’ll be run out of his organization for practicing intellectual consistency.

  2. arc99 October 24th, 2014 at 1:39 pm

    If the crazies think he is crazy does that make him sane?

  3. mrbigstuff October 24th, 2014 at 1:48 pm

    Cruz will never be President and it has nothing to do with where he was born.

    • granpa.usthai October 24th, 2014 at 8:17 pm

      fortunately, the USA has a Constitution that currently says it does. Just like Sara’s lawless fling(S) have disqualified her, if Ted’s immigration papers don’t pass USCIS mustard, his current US Citizenship may actually be null and voided. A Texas US Senator not a citizen is no more legal than a fake Canadian Citizenship is for someone from Cuba who aided Fidel Castro.

    Teddy, I am thinking you really are not looking to be President at all, you either want to do a gig on radio or just want the attention and speaking fees just like Newt, you might even get to play this for many cycles before you have to actully run.

    but another hint, you just might want to keep your Cuban/might be a commie/or i didn’t know i fought with a commie father to keep his deluded thinking in his narrow head.

    not to be to personal, but just where is your mom? not hear anything about her, did she meet your dad in cuba? just wondering as i want to get a head start on being able to flame her just like you all did to the Presidents mom!

    • tracey marie October 24th, 2014 at 2:19 pm

      the elder cruz is a coward and a big mouth who flips and flops and taught his son well. The elder is twice divorced, some catholic he is. He fled cuba after fighting with Castro and getting his sister involved as well as a counter revolutionary. He fled to America, used welfare and more to obtain his college education. He divorced his first wife and mother to his 2 other children to marry an American, they started and lost 2 buisinesses, one in calgary and another here. That is a start

      • Pilotshark October 24th, 2014 at 2:23 pm

        So it seems Ted is being groomed for a top spot position, just think his one term senate career will be the high light in daddy’s plan.
        one wonders if the father keep up with child support, or was just another loud mouth dead beat.

        • tracey marie October 24th, 2014 at 2:27 pm

          a dead beat, I wonder why ted does not talk about his half siblings…maybe there was no divorce.

          • Pilotshark October 24th, 2014 at 3:05 pm

            “.maybe there was no divorce.”

            Grinning, Interesting, juicy, you might be on to something, does he even talk about His own Mother?

          • tracey marie October 24th, 2014 at 3:17 pm

            nope, she is not involved in his life.

          • Pilotshark October 24th, 2014 at 3:32 pm

            Well Now why doesn`t this surprise me at all.

          • granpa.usthai October 24th, 2014 at 8:18 pm

            can’t say as I blame her.

          • granpa.usthai October 24th, 2014 at 8:09 pm

            do some date checking if you want to really get into it. (and immigration requirements for children who have one alleged parent who should be listed as a natural born US citizen) .
            Now, this is a true scandal in the making!

      • rg9rts October 24th, 2014 at 3:46 pm

        He He He

      • Dwendt44 October 24th, 2014 at 6:20 pm

        He was born under socialized medicine and his early years were under that medical coverage.

        • tracey marie October 24th, 2014 at 6:41 pm

          and the younger as well in canada

      • granpa.usthai October 24th, 2014 at 8:22 pm

        don’t believe the dates of marriages and divorces match up like they’re suppose to (what with there being a nine month normal time requirement)

        • tracey marie October 24th, 2014 at 8:34 pm

          He was with his second wife and used her to get a green card then married her. There is speculation he was not married to his first baby momma

    • granpa.usthai October 24th, 2014 at 7:57 pm

      He’s another self centered Teabagger. Never about anything else, always about him (typical of the overly pampered teabagger crowd).

  6. KB723 October 24th, 2014 at 2:10 pm

    HOORAY!!!! Freedom Fries anyone??? Lets sit back and watch the show!!! =)

  7. forpeace October 24th, 2014 at 2:40 pm

    This must be a very sad and depressing Friday for Ted Cruz, it will ruing his entire weekend. How bad Ted is when a famous “Birther” believes he is ineligible for the presidency.

    It is also important to know that former Sheriff Richard Ivan Mack is an anti-Government Libertarian, he was the organizer and operator of the entire Cliven Bundy’s standoff. He is the person who had plan to place all women on the front lines.

    • Dwendt44 October 24th, 2014 at 6:18 pm

      Good ole Ted is half white, only this time that white half is predominant. He looks white so he’s OK with the racist crowd.

  8. William October 24th, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    I wonder how this will effect the loyal following in bagger-ville?

    • New Old Gnu October 24th, 2014 at 5:10 pm

      Guessing it WON’T “Bother” them a Bit : )

  9. Larry Schmitt October 24th, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    His mother is (or was, if she’s no longer living) an American citizen. That makes Ted a citizen. The Supreme Court has never decided on the precise definition of “natural born citizen,” but Ted has never had to be naturalized, so he is a “natural born citizen.” All that being said, he will never be president.

    • granpa.usthai October 24th, 2014 at 7:54 pm

      Then why won’t they release his mother’s REAL birth certificate? And why would she go to Canada to give birth to someone who’s father supported Fidel Castro and wasn’t legally married before the nine months?

  10. New Old Gnu October 24th, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    “Far Right” Conservative Extremism IS the BEST Comedy Available in this Country !! : )

  11. fancypants October 24th, 2014 at 4:54 pm

    I cant understand how a Canadian born person cant be president ? I thought the gop fixed that

    • granpa.usthai October 24th, 2014 at 7:50 pm

      It’s not a REAL USA birth certificate, plus Cruz’s people are still refusing to release copies of the required Immigration Forms needed for him to legally be in the USA.

      • fancypants October 24th, 2014 at 8:29 pm

        last time I checked the big argument with Obama was he was born in Kenya and could not be president Now its ok if ted was born in Canada because one parent was an American. As for the above being a fake ? At least the birthplace is accurate and should be good enough to say Ted can not be president.
