Now that he's officially a candidate, we review the legal case for Canadian-born Ted Cruz to run for president. Could Donald Trump push the Supreme Court to take up the issue? http://bit.ly/1D2RB5g
For most of his presidential campaign and much of his presidency, President Barack Obama endured erroneous claims that he was born in Kenya rather than the United States. He released the short form of his birth certificate to prove he was born in Hawaii. Then the long form. The conspiracists died down, but they remained. Now, the first candidate to throw his hat in the rink for the 2016 presidential contest, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was born outsi...

I guess it doesn't matter anymore if no one is going to enforce that law.

LOLOL! What is it with Americans today? Are they really so stupid as to think we haven't, and don't, rig elections around the world? Many, many times? At least this time we didn't fund a revolutionary group and help them set up death camps to kill millions like we did over in the Orient in the 1960's under LBJ and Kissinger.

Do "whales live as long at SeaWorld" as they do in the wild? At its core, this claim is an oversimplification of a much more complex issue. Recent independent data suggests that survival rates for captive and wild orcas are about equal, but that by itself isn't all that significant, experts told us. Half True.

If I'm not mistaken, the primary concerns are surrounding the treatment of the whales and the ethics of captivity. There appears to be a lot of disinformation and slander on both sides, though, especially on the part of the dissenters.

Is #TedCruz, born in Canada, eligible to run for president? Likely -- but not definitively -- yes. From our archives: http://bit.ly/JxQ7pj
Can Ted Cruz run for president if he was born in Canada? The Republican senator from Texas says he can. And just to be sure, he’s taking the extra step of renouncing the Canadian citizenship he says he didn’t even know he had. Cruz -- full name: Rafael Edward Cruz --was born in Canada in 1970 because his father was working for the oil industry there. The senator’s recently released birth certificate shows his mother was born in Delaware and his f...

Did the health care law kill jobs? Did it lead to near universal coverage? As it turns 5, we look back at some of the bold predictions and expectations of the health care law. bit.ly/1HbvOsO 
Predictions about the health care law were a dime a dozen back in 2010. Supporters contended that virtually everyone around the country would soon have access to affordable insurance. Opponents said the law would cost a fortune by adding to the national debt and killing jobs. Actually, none of those things have happened. As the Affordable Care Act makes its way to its fifth anniversary on Monday, the law has taken twists and turns, moving off cou...

If they are your views and that's all they are, then I reject them because there is no substantiation for them, +Ben Quijada. Your claims could be substantiated if there was evidence, but if you have none, I question why you even hold those views. It seems rather absurd to believe something for which one has no evidence.

I know how to think and I appreciate the activity quite much. Your statements seem condemnatory, however, and not stimulating. The only thing it makes me think is that you are very bitter about the government. Your lack of evidence makes me wonder whether your bitterness isn't just ignorance.

I'll keep on thinking, and hopefully you will, too. No debate is needed, though I suppose it isn't possible when there's nothing to debate about.

The first fact-check of Ted Cruz as an official presidential candidate. He said small businesses are closing "in record numbers." The verdict: False. http://bit.ly/1N5DQUL

Did Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flip-flop on the creation of a Palestinian state as part of a peace deal in the Middle East to help secure re-election? That’s at least the suggestion floating around in the days after Netanyahu’s Likud Party won enough seats to retain coalition control of Israel’s government.

Ted Cruz says climate 'alarmists' have a 'problem' because 17 years of satellite data show 'zero warming.' Mostly False http://ow.ly/KAKLv
The world’s on fire, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas -- but it’s not because of global warming. On Late Night with Seth Meyers March 17, host Meyers brought up an incident that had happened several days earlier -- in which Cruz seemed to frighten a 3-year-old girl when he said

It's bizarre how conservatives will cling to a tiny fraction of science that looks useful to them while denigrating the scientists who recorded the data, their ongoing work, and conclusions. It seems they can only hear people who appear to agree with them and not even then. 

How does somebody that trapped inside their own fantasy world even walk down the street?
