Ted Cruz Can Still Win Delegates and be the Republican Nominee

tedcruz8Ted Cruz can still be the Republican nominee, but in order for that to happen, conservatives in the states that have not yet voted (including California), must continue to unite around Ted Cruz and cast their votes for Cruz.  Trump has not received a majority of the delegates yet and can still be denied the nomination by delegates who vote their conscience with a vote for Ted Cruz.  So far, only Ted Cruz has won the majority of delegates in at least eight states and is thus the only candidate that can appear on the ballot at the GOP convention in July according to Rule 40(b).

In addition, Ted Cruz has only suspended his campaign and can still keep his delegates while acquiring more before the convention.  Emily Rose Shelley of Conservative Push explains:

Listen up! Nebraska, West Virginia, Oregon, Washington, Montana, South Dakota, New Jersey, New Mexico, and California!  Ted Cruz has suspended his campaign, not ended his campaign. What’s the difference between suspension and termination? Delegates! Candidates who drop out forfeit their delegates, and any potential of winning more delegates. Ted Cruz’ name will still be on the primary ballots of the states I listed above. He had no intention of having his name removed from the ballot, nor will he endorse any other candidate before the convention. This means that in the states listed above, Cruz could still win delegates IF the voters in those states are smart enough not to buy-into the hype of Trumpmania. For those who are angry enough to leave the GOP, (and I certainly understand that anger,) I give you a clarion call not to do so yet if you live in those states listed above. In fact, I would suggest you wait until the convention in July before officially dropping out of the party.

Suspending his campaign might be a brilliant move for Ted Cruz because Trump will think he has won the nomination.  Since most Trump supporters are low-information and first-time voters, they don’t understand the process and will think it not necessary to vote as well.  It also helps that Trump is telling his supporters to not vote in the upcoming primaries.  From Time:

Donald Trump pulled out all the stops courting coal miners in West Virginia Thursday night, but he told them to skip voting in the primary.

“Now what I want you to do is save your vote,” Trump told the crowd in Charleston, West Virginia. “You know, you don’t have to vote anymore. Save your vote for the general election, OK? Forget this one, the primary is gone.”

Keep up the fight for the Constitution and for conservative values.  Make sure to keep voting for Ted Cruz and tell others to do the same.

Ted Cruz can still become the Republican nominee and restore the republic.

  1. BOOO! #LyinTedCruz needs to step off. He was born on foreign soil of a foreign national father. He is not a ‘natural born citizen(he may not be a US citizen at all). He’s a wannabe usurper.

        • ‘Citizens’ and ‘natual born Citizens’ are not the same thing (see Article IV, Section 2). You would make all citizens eligible when the founding father were clearly concerned about foreign influence on the POTUS (think Obama) and inserted the ‘natural born Citizen’ clause to ensure that only persons born on US soil and of US citizen parents would be eligible.

          Why do you quote immigrantion and naturalization code when it has nothiing to do with ‘natural born Citizen’? Per Article V,Congress does not have the authority to define ‘natural born Citizen’.

          What judges/case(s) are you referring to?

          Here are five SCOTUS cases that disagree with them:

          The Venus, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 253 (1814)

          Vattel, who, though not very full to this point, is more explicit and more satisfactory on it than any other whose work has fallen into my hands, says: “The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives or indigenes are those born in the country of parents who are citizens. Society not being able to subsist and to perpetuate itself but by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights.

          Shanks v. Dupont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830)

          Ann Scott was born in South Carolina before the American revolution, and her father adhered to the American cause and remained and was at his death a citizen of South Carolina. There is no dispute that his daughter Ann, at the time of the Revolution and afterwards, remained in South Carolina until December, 1782. Whether she was of age during this time does not appear. If she was, then her birth and residence might be deemed to constitute her by election a citizen of South Carolina. If she was not of age, then she might well be deemed under the circumstances of this case to hold the citizenship of her father, for children born in a country, continuing while under age in the family of the father, partake of his national character as a citizen of that country. Her citizenship, then, being prima facie established, and indeed this is admitted in the pleadings, has it ever been lost, or was it lost before the death of her father, so that the estate in question was, upon the descent cast, incapable of vesting in her? Upon the facts stated, it appears to us that it was not lost and that she was capable of taking it at the time of the descent cast.

          Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857)

          The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As society cannot perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their parents, and succeed to all their rights.’ Again: ‘I say, to be of the country, it is necessary to be born of a person who is a citizen; for if he be born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country. . . .

          Minor v. Happersett , 88 U.S. 162 (1875)

          The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first.

          United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)

          At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children, born in a country of parents who were its citizens, became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.

          Perkins v. Elg, 307 U.S. 325 (1939),

          was a decision by the Supreme Court of the United States that a child born in the United States to naturalized parents on U.S. soil is a natural born citizen and that the child’s natural born citizenship is not lost if the child is taken to and raised in the country of the parents’ origin, provided that upon attaining the age of majority, the child elects to retain U.S. citizenship “and to return to the United States to assume its duties.” Not only did the court rule that she did not lose her native born Citizenship but it upheld the lower courts decision that she is a “natural born Citizen of the United States” because she was born in the USA to two naturalized U.S. Citizens.

          “But the Secretary of State, according to the allegation of the bill of complaint, had refused to issue a passport to Miss Elg ‘solely on the ground that she had lost her native born American citizenship.’ The court below, properly recognizing the existence of an actual controversy with the defendants [307 U.S. 325, 350] (Aetna Life Ins. Co. v. Haworth, 300 U.S. 227 , 57 S.Ct. 461, 108 A.L.R. 1000), declared Miss Elg ‘to be a natural born citizen of the United States’ (99 F.2d 414) and we think that the decree should include the Secretary of State as well as the other defendants. The decree in that sense would in no way interfere with the exercise of the Secretary’s discretion with respect to the issue of a passport but would simply preclude the denial of a passport on the sole ground that Miss Elg had lost her American citizenship.”

          The Supreme Court of the United States has never applied the term “natural born citizen” to any other category than “those born in the country of parents who are citizens thereof”.

      • Where Trump’s mother was born is irrelevant. The only relevant fact concerning Trump’s mother is that she was a naturalized, US citizen when he was born.

        ‘Natural Born Citizen’ – A person born on US soil of US citizen parents. How they became citizens is irrelevant.

  5. Does the author of this story not know Trump is the nominee?Unless the #NeverTrump people have been hiding a mad scientist with a DeLorean in a warehouse somewhere and haven’t gotten around to telling anybody, Donald J. Trump is now the certain Republican nominee for president of the United States.

    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday that House Speaker Paul Ryan said in an interview about Trump, “He’s the nominee. I’ll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention.”

    Newt Gingrich said in a blog posting on LinkedIn that Ryan’s statement “that he could not yet endorse Trump was dangerous. It was also in some ways a demonstration of fear and weakness.”

    • Sorry to disappoint you but he is NOT YET the nominee, thats just a preconceived notion by MSM. He may be the only one actively running, but, he has not yet received 1,237, even that doesn’t mean anything, not really, Delegates choose the nominee, not the popular vote. Trump has SO MANY unbound delegates.
      Cruz suspended his campaign, he didn’t withdraw. As long as his campaign is only suspended he holds on to all his delegates, just like Rubio and Kasich.

  6. Trump may be the same as the GOP establishment, Cruz is the only one not trying to fund Planned Parenthood. Trump is just another Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan etc..

    Cruz failed even get a protest vote in the Senate on Monday night, Cruz’s colleagues ignored his attempt to disrupt Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s efforts to fund the government without attacking Planned Parenthood.

    Fellow Republicans denied him a “sufficient second” that would have allowed him a roll call vote. Then, his Republican colleagues loudly bellowed “no” when Cruz sought a voice vote, a second repudiation that showed how little support Cruz has from the establishment GOP, and why he was the best choice.

    Lets hope Trump is not an establishment Republican too, so far looks to be he might be?? We just don’t know Trump, we knew Cruz’ politics and they were solid, but the people choose to take their chances with Trump. I hope they are right and Trump comes through while Cruz is alone in the Senate fighting the establishment..

  8. Cruz delegates are the only ones now that can save this nation. I pray they above all this mess and will give us the right person. If poll taken, I would lay good money Cruz is the preferred person among the voters, if not for Rubio and katfish we would be looking at Ted Cruz as our nominee right now. Fix and all the other sell outs did what they did for money and power, I would say most of all its power and influence that corrupted these people, power over others is a high that an ego can not suppress.
    I beg any Cruz delegate here, stand strong, change the rules that there is no bound delegates period. We are at the cross roads and I pray daily we will be able to follow the right road

      • Its over HeyJude,!!THAT’S ALL FOLKS!! Donald Trump reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president Thursday, completing an unlikely rise that has upended the political landscape and set the stage for a bitter fall campaign.

        Trump was put over the top in the Associated Press delegate count by a small number of the party’s unbound delegates who told the AP they would support him at the national convention in July. Among them is Oklahoma GOP chairwoman Pam Pollard.

        “I think he has touched a part of our electorate that doesn’t like where our country is,” Pollard said. “I have no problem supporting Mr. Trump.”

        It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination. Trump has reached 1,238. With 303 delegates at stake in five state primaries on June 7, Trump will easily pad his total, avoiding a contested convention in Cleveland.

      So many Trump supporters have been spewing comments such as:
      If you don’t vote for Trump, you are allowing Hillary to be President.

      If Trump is not the nominee, will Trump supporters vote for whomever that nominee is in order to stop Hillary?

          Conservatives warned Trump supporters that a vote for Trump is a vote for Hillary.

          Unfortunately, a large number of Trump supporters are Democrats and want Hillary to win. If you don’t want Hillary as President, then the GOP needs to nominate someone other than Trump.

          It’s unbelievable that so many people have been conned by Trump into voting for him. Trump is doing this in order to enable his cousin and great friend, Hillary, to become President. She would not have had a chance if it were not for Trump.

          If Hillary becomes President, her election and the destruction of the USA will be caused by Trump and his supporters.
